Speaker: Mike Covell. Marfleet Murder Mystery. It’s 128 years ago since the discovery of the bloody body of Preston girl 18-year-old Mary Jane Langley. With her throat cut in a jagged wound, the murder instigated a media frenzy at the time but today is largely forgotten. And the murder still remains unsolved… Mike Covell investigates!

It is with immense sadness that I report the passing of Graham Bradshaw on the 31st August. Known to most Hedon folks as the jovial proprietor of Rings & Things, Graham was a lovely man, a true gent with a great sense of humour and fun. Deepest sympathies to Marjorie and all the family. The funeral is on Monday, 9th September and the family’s notice is copied below.
