NORGARB PROPERTIES RICKSHAW STILL MISSING!!

Norgarb Properties Rickshaw Still Missing
You may recall the recent story regarding the theft of the Norgarb Properties Rickshaw. It was stolen at the worst time possible as it was due to be at the Halloween festivities, to bring joy to so many people in our community.
 
Thank you to all the community members who checked their CCTV camera footage, and for updates and sightings as and when they happened. 
 
It was last spotted on the M5 freeway close to the Grassy Park area!
 
Please do keep reporting any sightings or information regarding the missing Rickshaw, one that we have all come to know and love having around our picturesque Village.
 
Its twin will however be ready and waiting for kids’ rides (and adults who think they are kids) at this year’s Carols in the Park event.
 
 
Purley Park – 18 December 2022
 
From 3.30 pm onwards
 
Pack a picnic and there will be a mini Christmas Market

THE PROS AND CONS OF DOWNSIZING
