Item Found at Bus Stop

June 20th, 2018

One of our Senior Citizens found a knitted pouch at the bus stop in the Town Centre last week. It is not known whether the item was dropped by one of our passengers or another member of the public. The item will be available from Friday 22nd June for 2 weeks at our offices here in School Aycliffe Lane. If it is not claimed in two weeks we intend to hand it to the Police.

If you know who the pouch belongs to, please ask the owner to get in touch with us.  Whoever collects the item will have to know what colour it is and what was in it.
