Haverhill in Bloom (HIB) is an organisation run by volunteers in Haverhill to help make the environment a pleasant place for both locals and visitors. Alongside fundraising works in the community, the volunteers decorate various parts of the town with floral displays. Sadly, some of the flowerbeds made by the volunteers were vandalised on Monday 21st June, footage of the flowers being ripped out was later passed onto the police.
In response to this, our Haverhill branch donated several tiered planters to help HIB to restore its flower displays and put right the damage made by vandals. The Haverhill branch were delighted to be able to do their part in supporting the organisation to get the displays back in order.
David Brett, Branch assistant manager, Ipswich Building Society: “We at the Haverhill branch are overjoyed at the opportunity to support Haverhill In Bloom in restoring the flower displays within our town.”
Sue Roach, Secretary of HIB expressed her appreciation of the Society’s donation as she was “overwhelmed” and “delighted” that Haverhill branch had gone a step above to restore the floral displays. B&Q in Haverhill have also donated multiple packs of plants, alongside a variety of business in the town.
