March 2021 : We paid a visit to the Cinderford Covid-19 Vaccination Centre and delivered two boxes full of home made iced sponge cakes for the GP's, nurses and admin staff who are providing this essential service for our community. They are all doing this on top of their normal day to day commitments and we wanted to show our gratitude and support to them all in a small way. They looked surprised but very keen to get stuck in !
