Heretofore Little Bowden Rec (seen above in autumnal mood) has been best known as the scene of the young Bryan Magee's philosophical epiphany and the home of the stump watch conducted by Backwatersman.
But yesterday it served as the venue of one of the great news stories. The Harborough Mail reports:
The classic image of the fireman rescuing a cat from up a tree may be a cliché - but that’s exactly what Harborough firefighters found themselves doing yesterday morning (Thursday).
A crew from the town were called to the park off Scotland Road in Little Bowden at 11am.I do think they could have tried harder with the headline though.
Firefighters used a ladder to rescue the stricken moggy.
