A questionable butterfly


Hunters Lodge

The former Mare & Foal Sanctuary charity shop. £12K rent a year plus at least £3.3K business rates.

Vicks, of course it’s a serious matter, however how on earth do you think this little thread is going to make any difference to the efforts to find the perpetrator? It’s ridiculous to post this a week after an event that was witnessed by so many, and yet claim that the police “can’t be arsed”! What is he trying to achieve?

What are you going to do with this vital lead? You say the police can’t be arsed (which is strange coming from someone who said that they’re an ex-policeman), so what’s the plan?

Well the wording of her communication, (to which select group of people was this sent, I wonder?), leaves us in no doubt as to which side of the fence she sits on. My opinions will therefore be forwarded to someone on this working party who I'd have more trust in to put forward (rather than file away) my personal views.

Ignore Jools, everyone else does. My recommendation is - not used them myself, but friends have and were delighted.

Like you say Will, it’s a work in progress and I look forward to revisiting this in the near future. In the meantime here’s a link to the Environment Agency’s most recent newsletter about the flood relief project:
