A little local trouble
A weekly round-up of rural rumpuses

However, the minister defended his refreshments in a letter to the village magazine: "The church exists to offer the love of God to people who are not its members.

News of a sad freak accident, also in Scotland. At the Lairg Crofter's Show in Sutherland last Saturday, a terrier, Beenie, got in the way of a caber. Eileen MacKay, secretary of the show and the dog's co-owner, said: "The competitor tossed the caber and unfortunately it did not go the right way. Everyone scattered immediately. Beenie had been running about. We called her but she never heard and it landed right on top of her." The local vet was called but, sadly, Beenie had broken her neck. "It was a tragic end to a great day," said Mrs MacKay.
