Moving on

Ziman farewell
The parish council organised an evening get-together in the Church Rooms to say farewell to Robert and Denise Ziman who are moving away from Old Buckenham. It was also an opportunity to say thank you to all those involved with the Community Car service that has been organised by Robert for all villagers over the last twenty years.
Robert and Denise were presented with a few gifts including a set of framed photographs of Old Buckenham scenes to remind them of their time here.
Having joked about “getting red carpet treatment”, they were given their own small piece of initialled red carpet during the presentation. Robert took the opportunity to thank all those drivers who had been so supportive and helpful, especially when asked to do journeys at short notice. He also felt thanks were due to the great majority of the customers who were appreciative of the service that they received when visiting the doctors or hospital. He officially handed over the £20.05 cash float that he had been given all those years ago and wished his successor, Mike Craven-Romain, all the best for the future.
The parish council members along with the community car drivers were then able to enjoy a buffet and drinks while passing on their own personal best wishes to Denise and Robert.
