ON behalf of my family I would like to thank the nurse and her husband, another nurse and a first aider who all stopped to assist Maureen, my elderly mother who fell over outside Lloyds Bank, Amesbury on Friday, November 29.
Not only did the nurse with her husband - I’m sorry I don’t know their names but they live on Boscombe Hill - take the trouble to stop and treat her injuries until the ambulance arrived, but they also took her car back to my father at Boscombe Down, letting him know what had happened. Later that evening they even came round to see her, after she had been discharged, with flowers and a card.
This proves there are still caring people around, particularly as they did not know her.
From all my mother’s family thank you very much.

THROUGH the pages of the Journal please can I thank Tesco Castle Street for selling the Scout Christmas post for me. In 1994, 5,497 cards were delivered in the district. Last year it had gone up to 56,264.
Tesco has been selling stamps for me since 1995 and sell around 2,500 stamps. Unfortunately on the night of Tuesday, December 4, Tesco suffered a burst pipe over the front of the store and the post box was filled with water. I managed to separate the cards and dry them in the bakery but about 150 had water damage.
All I can do is apologise and hope this does not stop you using our service in the future.

SINCE the recent break-in at the Pembroke Centre, Wilton Riding for the Disabled has received many donations, raffle-prizes and offers of help. We would like to thank all those who have responded so generously. The intruders did not take a great deal, but did a large amount of damage, which has been costly for the Group and upsetting for everyone.
It is hugely encouraging to know that we have such amazing support from our community; it will help us continue to offer riding as a unique therapy to disabled children and adults, and we and our riders are very grateful.
CAROL CARVELL Chairman, Wilton RDA
I WOULD like to express my gratitude to the manager and staff in BHS and to the paramedic team who attended after I fell on the store escalator on Monday, December 2. I am making good progress and the injuries I sustained to my leg are healing well.

Many thanks to the lady and gentleman who kindly helped me when I fell in town last Friday November 29.
