  1. Saint Sarah, former friends of people who protected these things, now claiming it’s a good result. Perhaps when she hobknobing with this community, she’ll have a good look at them and think, how many of them were invoved. I for one, couldn’t stomach being in the same room or within a 100 yards of these people, the mere thought sickens me.

She still has not clarified how she obtained a job at a Childrens` Hospice, with a caution in relation to domestic violence. Was the DBS check ignored ?. The Trustees of Bluebell wood should explain the circumstances around this issue.
