Thanks to Good Samaritans

Many thanks to the people who helped me when I tripped over a pavement that was jutting up at the bottom of Rolle Street, mid-afternoon on New Year's Eve.

Many thanks to the people who helped me when I tripped over a pavement that was jutting up at the bottom of Rolle Street, mid-afternoon on New Year's Eve. The lady, who was standing nearby, and the gentleman from the Travel Agents. Both of whom picked me up. The gentleman got a tissue for my bleeding lip and then went to the Taxi Rank to get a taxi to take me to the Minor Injuries Department.

The very kind lady got my trolley and handbag and came up with me. When I thanked her at the hospital, she told me she was a Christian.

At the hospital, the kind nurse put two stitches in my lip and gave me medication for my aching head.

Fortunately, I was wearing my long winter skirt which protected my knees from being scraped, although they were swollen and I had a cold compress to prevent bruising.

My usual taxi driver, "Dave", took me home and took my shopping trolley and handbag indoors and he made sure I was settled before leaving me.

It is no thanks to the local organisation for letting our pavements get in such a bad condition.

I assume money comes into it. It is shameful that cost comes before pedestrian safety.
