Shaftesbury Woman Responds To Stranger’s Kindness

Linda Brolan was surprised at what she found when she picked up a discarded jewellery bag near the Town Hall.

She had intended to hand the item into Shaftesbury Police, assuming it was lost. When she opened the bag, it contained a dress ring and a note which read, ‘find it, keep it, enjoy it’.

Linda says this sums up the spirit of Shaftesbury. She’s repaying the kindness by drawing locals’ attention to dog poo. In our interview, Linda explains what she’s doing so walkers are aware of the mess.
