Letter of thanks received from Gravesham Borough Council following the Olympic events in Higham.

Dear Jennifer, Linda and Members of Higham Parish Council,

I wanted to write to thank you all for the assistance you gave to the Council during the Olympics. The work that the Parish Council put in to the torch relay and the Outdoor screen event really was a fantastic effort and well beyond the call of duty.

The Council is delighted with how well the community responded to the 2012 activities, starting with the torch relay which was truly a great day for the Borough. Finally the sun came out and shone for the duration of the games – it really is true that the sun shines on the righteous! All our objectives for the Games were achieved and we now look forward to the Paralympics.

I look forward to working with you again at some time in the future.

Director [Communities]
