Guy Fawkes AGAIN!!!!

Mary from Horsham Downs

Thanks for the warning neighbours, just had to rescue my horses from their paddock after inconsiderate persons once again not letting people in their area know what their plans are to scare innocent animals with such an archaic practice. Please if you are one of these people that must waste your money, let your neighbours know the date and time you intend to do this.
