Claire Wilson – Community Fundraiser, Little Havens commented:

“All of us at Little Havens are delighted to be working alongside Chelmsford Star Co-op as their charity of the year. This calendar, showcasing Wonderful Essex, shows off the stunning county in which we live, and would be a ‘wonderful’ addition to any kitchen or office wall. But not only have that, by purchasing it you have helped raised money for a very important local cause. Thank you. Can I take this opportunity to wish you all a happy new year.”
