Postwick Cat(s) – Latest!

Remember the missing cat on Cullings Hill?  Someone looking for a similar grey cat took it to the vets to check whether it was tagged and discovered it had been missing 3 years and came from Acle.  Now reunited with his family, and named Henry.

Still missing is another grey cat called George!  Please contact su.allport@gmail.com, if there are any sightings.

Mentioned in dispatches
Remember the flooding under the Oaks Lane railway bridge last month? Suddenly, as if by magic,  the waters drained away.  Not a miracle, but all thanks to Paul Payne, who once again donned his wellies and the dug the drain clear.
