Gnome Disaster Averted in Birnam Glen
This news has been embargoed for a couple of weeks while investigations are carried out... but imagine my consternation on an early morning walk with the Birnam Glen Dog to find our good friends the BG Gnomes lying head down in the burn (one with a severe injury). Who could have done such a thing? Strangest of all, the coins from their collection for Guide Dogs for the Blind were ALSO in the burn.
Anyway, luckily welly boots were the order of the day, so in I got and rescued the gnomes from icy depths, and returned them to their home, where they seem unmoved by their disturbing experience - and still collecting.
Obviously, the proper authorities have been informed, but there's been no sign of a repeat, but questions remain - who, and above all, why?
