A heartwarming story from Xmas

Both my local papers , the Wisbech Standard and the Fenland Citizen are reporting a rather heartwarming story of ordinary people rallying round and helping each other out.

The village shop and postoffice at Elm was robbed of £300. Shopkeeper Kuldip Sekhon, 52 was threatened with a shotgun and left with a black eye and bruised ribs. The shopkeeper, who only arrived in the village in August is quoted as saying “I’ve had cards, messages, and I’ve even had people come in and give me money. I’ve never known this kind of community togetherness. They say Christmas is always about the spirit of good will but that spirit is always here“.

The culprit is described as being a white male about 5’10 tall.
