The Markham Clinton Community Project (MCCP) committee would like to thank its dedicated band of helpers who turn up week in, week out and to also thank everyone for continuing to support events. The response from everyone has been amazing. MCCP is coming up to the end of its first year and it has been excited to see ideas come to fruition, with increasing numbers of people attending events.
