Lost Keys

Thankfully . a member contacted me by telephone this morning advising me that she had found a set of keys in her bag recently

She requested as to what was included and when I gave he a description , car fob , house keys and several tags , she confirmed that the keys she had matched the description

This has eased our minds as the precautions that we have had to take whilst on holiday for 5 days and then 10 days have been somewhat onerous

Thankfully Maureen and I can rest easy now that we can get back to living normally whilst out and about and not worrying about my car being taken away whilst we are asleep

Thanks again to the member for eventually finding the keys in her possession and informing us
