Hors­ing around left a few grumpy gar­den­ers


The Sunday Post (Newcastle) - - OPINION -

When I was five years old I lived in Jed­burgh and, across the road from home, was a field with horses in it.

One evening be­fore go­ing to bed I went across to feed them sugar cubes. How­ever, un­be­knownst to me I had for­got­ten to shut the gate.

My mother was wo­ken at three in the morn­ing to horses clomp­ing up the street and ru­in­ing all the gar­dens.

The po­lice were alerted, but with no po­lice sta­tion in Jed­burgh, of­fi­cers had to come from Haw­ick to round them up.

A lot of an­gry gar­den­ers never knew it was me!
