Legacy Ideas Wanted

 Hartford Villager’s Legacy

George Cain, one of Hartford Civic Society’s founding members 17 years ago, sadly passed away in December 2019.  Unbeknown to us, George left a significant sum of money to the Society in his will.  We are now planning how to spend this to benefit the residents of Hartford.  Our remit is wide, but summed up with 'Cherish the past - Protect the future'.

 The Trustees of the Society have decided to ask you, the residents of Hartford, to put ideas forward for a lasting project or projects, which will benefit the village community and utilise the legacy.

 So, get those thinking caps on and let us know your thoughts and ideas for projects which George’s legacy might deliver.  We would like to think that he would have approved.  Tell us if you knew him.  Please put a short idea on Hartford Life or e-mail:  Have a look at our website to see some of our previous achievements.

At a recent Trustees meeting we agreed that there is no time limit as to when the legacy money is to be spent, so please continue to let us have your ideas. They will all be considered and the appropriate, practical, ones will be taken further.

 Thank you - The Trustees.

Lichfield trip postponed

Because of the restrictions in place regarding the Corona virus pandemic, we have had to postpone our trip to Lichfield which should have taken place in May. Many of the people who go on our trips fall into the 0ver-70s age group and it is not worth taking risks with their health.

We are hoping that the trip can go ahead at a future date but at this moment we cannot be certain when that future date will be. As soon as we know we will announce it.

We are sorry to disappoint everyone, but we really had no choice.

Watch this space.
