Mobile phone found!

Very many thanks to Debbie Jeffries and her sharp eyes for spotting on Facebook some kind stranger’s post about finding an iPhone at the end of Marsh Lane.  Sadly it is almost certainly beyond repair but confirmed that shopping for a new one is the right things to do today!  Our daughter and family had just set out.....

Many thanks to everyone who has responded and tried to help.  Stella and Geoff

Missing or Stray Dog

Does anyone know who might have lost a small black male dog? He has a short coat and relatively short legs. He's not wearing a collar and is reluctant to be caught. Two young girls came door to door to locate the owner after finding him on the Village Community Field this morning, 21 July. Robbie and Ian are working in the Village Hall and think perhaps he has been a round for a few days.
Please spread the word..... Stella 841216
