Chicken - found & looking for her owner!

Large white chicken with hint of brown, found today (Saturday 21st Feb) at around midday, wandering free at the bottom of Chapel Lane.  Have tried various chicken owners in the vicinity, but not yet found the owner.  Has anyone lost one?

She is happily being fed and watered in our spare coop - but please call me to come and collect! Nicky Backus  01747 841471

Mobile phone provider 5 Replies

Hello. First time poster to the Pen Selwood website. Not sure if this is the right location for a query like this, but here we go.I have an O2 phone which has a good signal most of the time, but then drops out to nothing intermittently. It's not the phone, and I suspect it's another provider's mast nearby crushing the signal.Anyone have any advice on the best mobile provider for the village? We're up near the church.Andrew WarrenContinue

3.5" floppy disc reader - offer

Further to my earlier request I now have a USB driven reader for 3.5" discs which works fine and which I will gladly lend to anyone else who may still have data on these little old HDs they want to recover.
