We were made aware of an elderly couple, 96 and 88 years old, who had been burgled in their home, by someone forcing the rear window while they were in the warden controlled property. The elderly gentlemen had carried his army papers in his wallet since he had served in the Royal Engineers. Unfortunately his wallet containing these papers was stolen, along with some cherished jewellery and a purse. We organised for a small bouquet of flowers to be sent to them, as it must have been such an awful shock.
We later found out that a local locksmith had arranged to go to their home and offered to change their locks for them and refused to take payment. He wanted them to feel safe again in their home. There are some kind people about.
