Please can I through your newspaper say a big thank you to a group of gentlemen.

On Saturday, June 8 while walking home from my friend's house - this 78-year old - who I may add was sober - had a nasty fall in the Market Place in Cirencester.

A group of colourful dressed young men leapt to my aid, after checking that I was not badly hurt and the offer of a taxi home.

I loved the comment from one of the young men who said “I’ve had six pints, what's your excuse?” 

Two other gentlemen walked along home with me, only leaving me when I assured them that I was fine.

I hope you went on to enjoy your evening - thank you.

Joan Muffett, Cirencester.
