Neighbourhood Watch – May

Neighbourhood Watch – May

As I write on May 10th, all other local crime seems insignificant compared with the dreadful murder of Mr Dennis Kellond in his bungalow on the A25 just beyond our border with Godstone.  One of the most appalling aspects is that he was 88 and such a nice, well-respected man.  Another is that the person charged, Darren McClean, was brought up and [...]
