Today, Friday 12th May, Frances Fancourt our Tree Warden, presented a bouquet of flowers to Mr and Mrs Casselden as a thank you for their long service to Bookham's feet, and to thank them for caring for the hanging baskets and planters in Church Road. They retire at the end of June after over 50 years of service.
Also on Friday morning it was the funeral of Mrs Brackenbury. Mrs Brackenbury, long time former owner and shopkeeper of Brackenbury's of one of Bookham's best loved shops.
