    Er, we do NOT live in Moulsecoomb, we live in Higher Bevendean. Widdicombe Way, and it does matter because sadly Moulsecoomb still has a bad rep. I like the idea of a local news site, well done. If I pick up an interesting story I will let you know, was a journalist for many years in previous career. Did you know that there’s an open meeting in the old Bevendean pub – where the accident reported above took place – on Saturday because it has been purchased as a community building?
