THE Pear Tree Fund is joining forces


with


Exciting partnership announced Big C Cancer


Charity to increase the range of help and support available to local people with life-changing illnesses once its new resource centre opens. Big C offers support for


those affected by cancer across Norfolk and Waveney, and will provide training and financial help when the Pear Tree Centre in Halesworth becomes operational later this year. It will also arrange peer support staff to work at the


centre,


who will be able to share their own experiences of living with cancer or offer a listening ear or advice. The partnership


will give


people living in north east Suffolk and south Norfolk the chance to get expert advice closer to home to help them or their loved ones living with cancer


or undergoing


treatment. Ted Edwards, co-chair of the


Pear Tree Centre project, said: “We are delighted to announce our partnership with Big C. The charity plays a significant role in helping to improve the lives of people with cancer in Norfolk and Waveney, and also has extensive experience of running drop-in centres for patients and their families. “We


are really


forward to working with them once the Pear Tree

Spring like, though the Beast from the East could yet return! However Spring cleaning is in the air and the crew has been mobilised for a spring cleaning blitz, and everything will be ‘ship shape and Bristol fashion’ in time for Easter.

this more affluent age when some houses in Southwold sell for prices in excess of £1 million, it is difficult to believe that


ordinary working folk,


fisher folk lived in shacks on the beach, though most were washed away in the storms of 1897. Do come and see this exhibition.

to improving


cancer care for local people. As a local charity, we are proud to invest in and provide support at the Pear Tree Centre, which will greatly enhance the help available to those affected by cancer in north east Suffolk and south Norfolk.” The


Pear Tree Fund,


which was formerly known as Halesworth Community Nursing Care Fund, is building the £880,000 Pear Tree Centre on land next to Cutlers Hill Surgery.


Once complete, it


will offer family services and advice on finance and benefits, as well as help understanding a diagnosis and coping with bereavement. The centre will include for


space small local support


groups to meet, a counselling room,


library and a


comfortable area where people can relax and chat informally. A therapy room where patients can


receive complementary


treatments, such as Reiki and massage, will also be available, along with a landscaped garden to help promote wellbeing. To find out more about the

Jackie Circus 1948 -2019


FOLLOWING her death on February 2nd from an incurable neurological


disease, CBD


(cortico basal degeneration), a service of thanksgiving for the life of Jackie Circus, of Valley Farm, Holton, was held on February 22nd at Halesworth United Reformed Church. This followed a private, family burial at the green burial site near Snape.


The service was introduced


by the minister, Rev Jon Sermon, and conducted by a longstanding


family friend,


Rev Howard John from Eastbourne, tributes were paid by elder son, Adam Circus, by Derek Groom, from Southend, and by Rev Mr John. Amongst the congregation which came from many places, both locally and as far afield as Kidderminster and Chichester, the principal mourners were Andrew Circus


(husband),


Adam and Peter Circus (sons) and Alex and Sophia Circus (grandchildren). were


made to

Association, a medical charity which supports research into PSP and CBD. Jackie Circus was, for many


THE Plant


years, an active member of the Halesworth Tourism Group and was known locally by the many families who used the indoor pool at Valley Farm, as well as the holiday cottages and 5 star bed and breakfast. The hire of cottages and the pool will continue in the future. The family would wish to express their heartfelt gratitude for the care and compassion shown to her by Professor Rowe and his colleagues at Addenbrooke’s Hospital, by Dr MacLusky from Cutlers Hill Surgery and the district nurses. Thanks are also due to Lee and Rob from AGA Mobility of Needham Market whose conversion of two garages enabled Jackie to spend her last months at home with all the facilities she could need. In particular, gratitude is due to the three wonderful girls from First Choice Care who did so much to support Jackie, her husband and the live-in carers who were with Jackie all the time. It was marvellous to see them at the service and, after, for afternoon tea at the Angel Hotel in Halesworth.
