Last day of the holidays

by 3arn0wl

On the day that the Earth is closest to the Sun, life goes on much as usual:

Justin Case unsuccessfully tested a model flying machine that his grandparents had given him for Christmas. It nose-dived into the Bredy. His granddad’s suggested that he takes it to Fred’s Treads, to see if they can fix it.

Plans to build a bridge at the Ford in Lower Snodding have been overwhelmingly dismissed by the Parish Council for being both unnecessary and a blot on the beautiful, unspoilt landscape there. Councillors did concede however that the stepping-stones were a health and safety issue and that the construction of a footbridge might be considered.

And Tom Bell was eager to try out the telescope he’d bought himself for Christmas. He wanted to see the Quadrantid Meteor Shower too.
