I wish to thank the very kind gentleman that found my daughter Amelia's book bag outside his house on Monday afternoon, and he then returned it to school on Thursday of the same week.
He didn't leave his name at school, and so I am unable to thank him personally.  So, I would like to express my gratitude and thanks here in Eastington Community News. 
Many thanks,  Anne Hudd
