Foot and Mouth Hatherleigh now available
By Neil Price, Co-Editor

January 16, 2006: During the Foot and Mouth outbreak in 2001, a few of us wrote down our feelings of how it affected us personally, but also how it affected our community. We have put it together in an A5 book with some photographs which I took at the time. We have just had the book printed. It is available to buy in Hatherleigh Post Office, The Paper Shop or through me, priced £3.50. It contains a day-to-day diary by Margaret Waddingham, some poems by local people and a small personal account by me. I asked people who had lost their animals if they would like to write down their side of things, but they felt they couldn’t, as the experience had been too painful. Trish Wonnacott 01837 810754
