SIR, - All mayors play their part in bringing the community together, but in her year which is just coming to an end, Cllr Kate Morris has achieved much more. She has revealed hidden aspects of the history of the city and district in her inspiring and imaginative series of Heritage events.

These have been full of enthusiasm and energy on the part of Kate, but with excellent support from local people. Thank you Kate, and thank you also for choosing the Fund for the Future for St Albans & District as your charity for the year. With your support and a number of community events - Abbey Fireworks, Rotary Band Concert, fundraising by the Buffaloes and the sponsored cycle ride by the crew of HMS St Albans, plus individual donations - the fund has grown by £23,000 in the last year.

Already 18 local community groups receive regular annual grants, with more to come later this year.

JOHN W. PETERS,
