I hesitated before doing this as it almost felt like a “misuse” of my position as manager of the website, but I decided in the end that I would do it for anyone else so I’d go ahead.
To non dog people my apologies. I know you think dog owners are nuts (I used to be a non owner myself !) but to those of us that ARE owners, the attachment that we have to our dogs is similar to that we have to our children. Perhaps that’s “wrong”, perhaps that’s “right” but that isn’t really the point – its just how we feel.
Our Dalmatian, Daisy died last week after a four month battle with cancer. During that time we have been constantly asked for updates from lots of people around the village. People who seemed to be genuinely concerned.
And since she died last week we have had calls, emails, and cards from people all around the area.
Both Jill and I wanted to let you all know just how touched we’ve been by this. At a difficult time for us that sort of support from such lovely people has really helped.
So Thank You.
Simon & Jill
The Hankerton History Group is holding an exhibition on the First World War in the North Aisle of the Church on 8th-9th November. More information to follow.
Walkers will have noticed that access to Hankerton copse in the Wildlife Area has been blocked by a fallen limb from the adjacent oak tree lying across the bridge for the last week. This has now been cleared by members of the village and you may use the bridge again. Be warned however there are several fallen limbs in the copse which are stuck in other trees and are likely to fall at any moment.
[Many thanks to Peter and Bunny for clearing this ! – Simon]
