Sadly, there won’t be hanging baskets in Hadleigh high street this year.  We’ve put them up for the last 5 years but this year we were unable to raise the money we needed - nearly £7,000 - in the time we had to do it.  We couldn’t start fundraising until our insurance cover from Hadleigh Chamber of Commerce was confirmed in mid-January.  We needed the money in place before contracting with our suppliers at the beginning of March. Although many residents and traders were keen to contribute, we still had a shortfall of about £3,000 - and no time left to find it.
