Policing: I went on the 349 Sunday bus service to Hastings Pier and was sad to see policeman with large guns on the pier. We need a brave policeman to protect us all so our way of life must not be allowed to slip away but it still makes me feel sad when I see this in East Sussex.

Helping hands: I did some gardening the other day and later as I was going to bed I looked out the window and saw I’d left my gardening gloves on the hedge. Feeling tired I thought aunt come down in the morning and put them away but found that somebody had put them on my dustbin by my back door. That tells me a lot about people. Very good of them to do that.

Doggie treats: in the Castle Inn there is a jar of dog biscuits on the bar. Most of the customers who come into the pub now have a nice coat and good teeth thanks to the landlady and landlord.
