Necklace lost

Posted by diana b on June 25, 2017 at 2:55 PM Comments comments (0)


I was at the arts trail today and whilst taking my cagoule on and off in the drizzle my necklace must have come off. I wondered if anyone handed it in. It has beads in different shades of blue with silver wire around each one.

I would be very grateful for its return.

Thank you

Lindsey Bance

Cedar St theft

Lenka posted over on Six Streets Facebook page a warning to neighbours that intruders had been in her garden overnight - stolen a bike and generally made a mess.

So please don't leave items around - esp stuff that could be used to break into your/ neighbours' sheds or houses.

Happy Ending - the child's bike was found dumped on Newton's Walk near Longford St. So Lenka may already have it back!

Lost your Tabby?

Posted by diana b on June 11, 2017 at 4:00 AM Comments comments (1)

Laura would have posted this but her laptop lost a battle with a mug of coffee. She is going make a report  to the council,  hopefully they will take a photo so owners can be sure of what has happened.

Unfortunately, it is sad news.

A cat was lying dead outside the flats on Kedleston Rd between shops and Jonty (opposite ibus shelter near Wheeldon Ave) She says the tabby all over cat was clearly hit by a car. It had no collar  - fairly small and fluffy rather than completely smooth coat.  

If you think you know the owners, they can contact the council
