She added: “Community cohesion matters to Cockfield and it is marvellous that we have been able to show what we do, as a village, to make ours a community to be proud of.

“Community spirit is about looking out for each other but it is also about being able to ask for help and having that provided, something, I am happy to say, Cockfield does well.”
