I would to give a heartfelt thanks to the staff of the Railway pub in Hale, and all the passers by who took very good care of my elderly mum after a particularly nasty fall on Sunday morning (October 8).

They kindly brought out a hot water bottle, blankets and directed the traffic till the ambulance arrived.

Special thanks also to the two local doctors who gave up nearly two hours of their time - the whole family is very very grateful.

Ps.Mother is fine and slowly getting back to normal!
