Upper South Wraxall, Saturday 9th December.

From Kate Eastwood:

We live at Cloverlea, 73 Upper South Wraxall ( two houses up from the Pub on the left hand side as you head out of the village towards The Avenue), and yesterday we had a family party at our house. We had several cars parked on our drive and a couple parked on the grass verge opposite. At the end of the day we realised that we had a purse and a wallet missing and having looked back at when it may have occurred we think the purse was taken  from the car as we were going in and out of our house, unloading the car at around midday. The wallet was taken from the glove compartment of a car that was on our drive. On arriving and parking their car, my parents were aware of a young teenage boy who walked out in front of their car just before they pulled in to park outside our house, and he continued to walk up the road in our direction.

We believe the theft to have been completely opportunistic and probably for cash only as none of the cards had been used in the time from when we believe they were taken to when all the cards were cancelled with the banks. For this reason we also believe it will quite possibly be the case that both the purse and the wallet will have been discarded once the cash was taken and we would be very grateful if you could contact Kate or Dave Eastwood on  01225 920894 if either of these items should be found locally.

Village Carol Singing

From Hilary Townsend :

For the last couple of years a festive group of villagers have sung carols around the village – despite mixed weather we have managed to stay jolly and raise money for Médecins Sans Frontières.

We are planning to repeat the event on Thursday 14th December (hopefully it will be a clear, starry night) and sing carols around the village.

Please join us – either singing or welcoming us as we meander our way around the houses. We will be meeting by the Christmas tree / War Memorial in the Upper Village at 6.00pm.

Everyone – young and old is welcome  – just wrap up warm and bring your own torch!
For further information please contact Gill Fairhurst (867560) or Hilary Townsend (864852).
