LAST month Waitrose's Community Matters scheme reached 10 years old.

They celebrated by asking all recipients of the award in the last 12 months to come along to a party with food and fizz.

The Stroud branch donates £1,000 each month to three local good causes/groups/charities who support the community.

They were also able to present the cheques for December's Community Matters recipients which were Minchinhampton Riding for the Disabled, Home-Start Stroud and Rodborough Community Choir.
