The Church Cat

Unfortunately after the concert last Saturday evening, Socks, the adopted Church Cat, was seen to be run over as he crossed the road, by a taxi. He was last seen running off but with a bad limp. We don’t know the outcome of this accident yet but we hope that only one of his nine lives was used and that he is recovering. Please keep our inquisitive neighbourhood friend in your thoughts.
