Village Wants The Haul Of Fame
Gloucestershire villagers have applied for a council grant to buy a donkey to help them lug their shopping up a steep hill. More than 30 residents on narrow Rack Hill in Chalford cannot reach their homes by car. They are fed up hauling shopping up the steep 100-yard hill and say donkeys, used in the village until the 50s, are an eco-friendly alternative to a new road. Anna Usborne, leading the campaign, applied to the parish council to buy a donkey from a nearby sanctuary.
