I PEN this letter to tell you how nice and kind the people of Gatton are. I am no longer a young and fit man, and whenever I put my mobility scooter in or out of my car there is always someone to help me. And only recently while looking for bread in a store a very kind woman put two $10 notes into my shirt pocket, saying that it is to pay for your groceries. Well if that isn’t caring, I will walk from here to Burke backwards.
