We at HCCA have some upsetting news to share. In June the HCCA garden was broken into and vandalised with items stolen such as the children’s fairy garden. We feel a great amount of distress that this act has occurred as the garden was only renovated in 2017. We would be incredibly grateful to anyone who would be willing to donate plants or help tidy the garden so the children’s story time sessions with the Holbrooks library can recommence.
