A community spirit is here

First published in Your Letters

Over the last few years my family has managed to lose two ladies purses (including cards and money), a laptop (left at a bus stop!) and last week a monthly bus pass in a nice leather holder with a bank card and £5 slipped inside.

All of these items have been handed in and returned to us. May I sincerely thank the person who found the bus pass, probably on a Portland bus last week, and handed it in. Whoever said there is no such thing as community? I love living here!

Nice to read good news for a change. You've been unlucky to mislay all that, but very lucky to get it back due to the kindness of strangers,

My wife found a purse containing an unsigned bank card and small amount of cash. We traced the owner via the internet, ie 192 and google photo's to place of work and home. Eventually we took the items to their place of work and received a "thankyou".

As for a handbag found on the Esplanade, we handed that to Beach Control and as yet, there has been no contact from either.
