Jubilant woman thanks Havebury Area Monitor for finding stolen garden tool
A local resident expressed gratitude to one of Havebury’s Area Monitors (HAM’s) in ensuring that her stolen garden hoe was returned to its rightful place.
Geoff Temple-Smith, a tenant volunteer, came across the garden hoe near his home. Believing the equipment belonged to a contractor, Geoff called the number attached and discovered that the garden tool belonged to Julia Briggs MBE, of Great Barton.
On realising the hoe was stolen, Geoff contacted the Police, who then swiftly collected and returned the item to the rightful owner.
For his good will and effort, Julia sent Geoff a thank you letter and £10. Upon receiving the £10 thank you, Geoff kindly donated the money to the East Anglia Children’s Hospital.
John Feveyear, Neighbourhood Communities Co-ordinator at Havebury Housing Partnership, said: “Geoff is a great asset to our team, and I am delighted his kindness has been recognised.”
