Humphrey Todd – Parish Councillor (Great Cornard South)





On 8 December 2010 Great Cornard Parish Council, once again, held its FREE Christmas Party for the over 60’s of the Parish.


Over 80 folk from Great Cornard were served a tea by a team of ‘elves’ from Great Cornard Middle School. Councillor Anne Harper-Clark, her husband Leon, prepared the food with assistance from Mrs Sylvie Thomas and Cllr. Carol Todd. The Chairman, Humphrey Todd assisted by Councillors Mrs. Marion Press, Tony Harman, David Thomas, and Colin Wright, was on hand to welcome the guests.


Music for the event was provided by the professional entertainer, ‘Just Clarky’. Father Christmas was in attendance and took a very active part in ‘dancing’. [I bet slept well – Ed.] The afternoon was orchestrated by ‘Master of Ceremonies’ Council Manager Michael Fitt with the Deputy Clerk Nadine Tamlyn.


As with previous years the funding for the party has been provided by the Car Boot Sales run during June and July on the Recreation Ground by Cllrs. Humphrey Todd, Anne Harper-Clark, and Carol Todd, together with Anne’s husband Leon. Bearing in mind that this team has to be in attendance every Saturday during the summer, and whether the weather is hot, cold, or extremely wet, then this really is dedication.
