Help BY heroes!
Dennis Arthur Smith, a veteran of the Afghanistan conflict, has worked tirelessly during Covid by ensuring that his local community around Sherburn, Pittington and Littletown is a place to be proud of and that our local wildlife is cared for. He has built, erected and maintained numerous flower boxes, bird feeders and hedgehog houses as well as engaging in regular litter picking.
Dennis, you are a true local hero, and we salute you!
