The Village Haul

by 3arn0wl

Following Justin Case’s recent find, Arky-ologists from the university have been down on the banks of the Bredy with their buckets and spades,  building sand castles sifting sand.

You wouldn’t believe the things they found:

  • and the bones of a cow. :/

Looks like the Moores are having a Barbie.

Stuff and nonsense

by 3arn0wl

Liz Bannister wanted to bake a Victoria Sponge for tea. She didn’t have all the ingredients though,  so she sent Graeme to the Farmers’ Market with a shopping list:

Well, for some reason Ella Miller wasn’t there, so he couldn’t get the flour.

Phil didn’t have any eggs left either.

And so, in the best traditions of the professional supermarket shopper,  he substituted a packet of Roger Moore’s biscuits for the flour,  and a carton of Minnie Driver’s cream cheese for the eggs.

He’d got everything else though, so that was good. He was sure Liz would be pleased too. 😀

Too much pomp under the circumstances

by 3arn0wl

Gloria thought that people had gone to an awful lot of trouble for her birthday:  tying bunting up across the land, holding street parties and lighting beacons.

It’s a big O birthday, but that doesn’t matter.  Roger’s got a special meal planned, and he’s promised her a few days on the continent.  Perfect!

Making their mark

by 3arn0wl

The Beau Street Runners were out early this morning – there was talk of it being a tight race, but Noah Wan’s generously winning by a country mile;

There’s canvassing and kisses planned as ᗡႱ & JD are intent on their first weekend away together;

Millie Boinet’s in the middle of her Art Practical – predictions are that she’ll do really well; and

Prue Vidor’s in party mode – she wants to let her hair down, and she knows just The Place to do it.

And Ellie Wan asked “How’s Roger Moore done in the local erections?”

The train is a coming

Riding a wave footplate of interest and enthusiasm for the project, the BLAGGERS are delighted to announce that the next phase of the restoration of the Biscuit Line – the eight mile stretch between Tooting and Lower Snodding – is to begin.

“Despite the economic climate, funding is flooding in from users, from donations, from sponsors and from grants,” said chairman of the Biscuit Line, Roger Moore, “And this phase should cost less even though this stretch is longer.”

Phil Anyould has submitted his estimate of the cost of the works and is confident of securing the contract.

Asked what he thought about he Blue Riband coming to Lower Snodding again, Lord Rupert said: “I’m chuffed to bits!”

Middle March

Godwin Heal’s served the sick of Poppleton faithfully for a generation. Now it seems he’s required to become a manager.  He’d been to see Michelle Biskup who’d advised him to take on an accountant, but he’s not sure.  His wife’s always kept her eye on the books.

Meanwhile Gloria Moore née Devine had been driving home from school in her 4×4,  and noticed that Poppy & Andy appeared to be living in Bill Spooner’s caravan.  She thought that wouldn’t do at all, so she went over to see Eddie Lowe to find out what he intended to do about it. Roger Moore thought she shouldn’t be meddling in other people’s business.

And a position has just opened up on Little Sniffy’s parish council,  and Roger Moore fancies his chances.

The Dragon of Tooting tunnel

by 3arn0wl

Several loyal readers got in touch with press Here earlier today to report some unusual goings on in Tooting tunnel:

  • Tooting resident, Joe Appleby was awoken by hissing and loud roars;
  • Rosie Barriclough was considerably disconcerted by the vibrations she felt underfoot as she delivered the day’s mail;
  • And Granny Smith, on her way into Poppleton on the 2B noticed a voluminous amount of smoke emanating from the tunnel exits.

Mike West and the boys were summarily summoned to the scene, and approached the aperture with all due caution. They knew all about the legend of the dragon of Tooting tunnel.

In the event though, the Tooting Dragon hadn’t been aroused at all: it was Roger Moore and his fireman, Lord Rupert, tinkering on the footplate of the Blue Riband.

And weren’t they ashen faced on being discovered!
