I have to give this idea as enthusiastic a thumbs up as is humanly possible. Not only does it create a boarding potential but there is the inherent social side to it too. I mean we all enjoy coming here for a chin wag (via keys) but what could be more comforting then knowing someone down the road who could pop in to diagnose odd symptoms? Who could accompany fist time buyers and helped to pick out the healthiest of the litter. Plus it opens up the network of proffered suppliers and so on.
I'm from a small village in Cheshire called Barnton I anyone's been here... I can only apologise it was so boring.
Bravo for the idea !
