Police, fire and hospital staff who remain on duty to protect the citizens of St Albans over the Christmas and New Year holidays have not been forgotten by the members of St Albans United Synagogue. 

To show their gratitude on behalf of the local Jewish community for all that the dedicated officers and crews do for them and for the entire community throughout the year, the three daughters of Rabbi Daniel Sturgess, the synagogue’s minister, decorated cupcakes and delivered them on Christmas Day to St Albans Fire Station,  Hatfield Police Station and St Albans City Hospital, along with illustrated handwritten notes expressing their appreciation.

Commented Rabbi Sturgess:  “We wanted to say thank you on behalf of the Jewish community of St Albans for all they do for us, especially on a day when others are enjoying time off with friends and family.   Needless to say, the staff were surprised, delighted, grateful and eager to tuck in!”
