I live very close to Axminster in Devon and the town has taken a real bashing recently with the loss of 300 jobs at the carpet factory, but I've just heard that a groups has been put together and has saved the company and together another 100 jobs. Axminster has been like a ghost town for the last few weeks and everyone now must be very much relieved......HOORAH !!!!
Now for the bad news.......and that is that the Ghastly Grand National is to go ahead this afternoon, despite the fact that two horses were killed yesterday in the pre-runner over the National course.........I am so angry and really wish that an end could be out to this absolute torture of horses. They have said they've made the jumps more "horse friendly" .........which clearly isn't the case. There are not many things that make me angry, I'm not the angry sort, but this makes my blood boil.
Yours very very crossly. Foggy x
