IT was such a shame that this year's Netley Marsh steam and craft show had to be abandoned because of the weather.
OUR thanks go to the officials at Netley Marsh steam fair who struggled against torrential rain and thick mud with good humour, patience and courtesy. They towed hundreds of vehicles and never once complained. We still had a great time!

MORE than 12,000 Hampshire residents delivered their verdict on Hampshire County Council's libraries plan yesterday when a petition containing their names was delivered to the authority's leader.
RESIDENTS are being encouraged to recycle their milk bottle tops to raise money for charity.

SAINTS were given a proper workout by Millwall last night during their 1-0 friendly win at The New Den.
