Lest we forget

       Marriotts remember November 2023

 

As a poppy grows on the edge of my street,

It makes me think, it makes me weep,

The day you died I will not forget,

I did not know you, we have not met,

 

You fought so hard the young & old,

Shoulder to shoulder, brave & bold,

Thousands upon thousands by land, air & sea,

You gave your life so I could be free,

 

So, I will remember the fallen,

And I will honour you with pride,

I will remember the 11th of November,

I will tell people why you have died,

 

Goodbye my friend & thank you,

For this life I have is good,

I will think of this little red flower,

I am sending you all my love.

Brighter Tomorrow

We have just planted 500 more trees with JUST ONE Tree!

So many good causes are in need support and trying to decide where our charity donations go is a really tough one.

At Marriotts we are extremely concerned about the global environmental situation which ultimately effects every single one of us, the future of our children and all future generations - urgent action is needed.

JUST ONE Tree is a non-profit initiative removing CO2 from the atmosphere and reversing biodiversity loss through global reforestation. They plant trees in areas severely affected by deforestation to maximise the effect on reducing global warming. In the process they help to provide agricultural education and sustainable incomes to local communities.

Sell your home with us and we will plant 5 trees for you so you can feel good about doing your little bit to help!
