Garden ornaments have been stolen from a memorial in Dobcross. Can you help?
Mr and Mrs Howarth are a retired couple who have lived in Dobcross all their lives and are keen gardeners, so keen in fact they often enter the Saddleworth in Bloom competition and on several occasion have won prizes for their beautiful garden.
In 2007 their 33 year old nephew Karl Jones was tragically killed in a motorbike accident and in the same year Mrs Howarth’s eldest and younger brother also passed away. In response to this tragic loss they decided to make a memorial in their garden in remembrance of them both. Andrew, their son, bought them two stone garden cherubs and placed them with a white cherub which had been in the garden for twelve years. Over the years, when working in the garden, they have gained a great deal of comfort from the cherub ornaments.
The couple were heartbroken to discover that between Thursday 25th and Monday 29th September 2014 the three cherubs had been stolen.
They would like to appeal to anyone who may know where these ornaments are, in monetary terms they cost very little but in sentimental value, to Mr and Mrs Howarth, they are priceless.
