A HUGE thank you to Alan Beesley who had to ferry a number of people home last Sunday after a car driver left their vehicle in our car park while she went off for the afternoon leaving all our cars blocked in. Although we reported them to the police there was nothing they could do to assist so we had to wait till after she collected her car and then Alan had to fetch everyone so they could get their cars home. Well done Alan.
