News Biting A Bit Close To Home.

You know that feeling when you see something a bit bad in the news?

You know that feeling when that bad thing is where the parents live…

You know when you decide to call… just in case… and it turns out that this report is your parents place…

Sadly this turned out to be spot on, as this thatched roof belongs to the Mackay Cottage at Oldborough. (It was only their place that was affected – ignore that bit in the report). Thankfully they’re ok, the house is saved… if in a bit of a mess.

New roof needed, new carpets needed, and maybe some work needed where water has come in around the tarpaulin that has been put up by the thatcher.

From what I’ve heard, the Fire Service were AMAZING.

I guess any prayers / good vibes you could send their way would be appreciated.
