  • our cottage was broken into some time over the last two weeks of November,,we put in a report to the police and began our social media request for help..we have received this notice several times through thoughtful people who read our plea for help..Fred Shorts helped us put up the trusses when we built the cottage several years ago. his girlfriend was waiting for him and she ended up joining us for a bbq,there was a gentleman in a red truck who came while they were there and there was discussion over getting the mobile home dismantled as soon as possible,,Will Creighten who owned the old chimney mine at the time told us someone had stolen the whole mobile trailer,he was supposed to return the next day he didn’t show..Wilf Deline had a break in a year or so ago,,Chris and Nicoli across from 2714 had several break ins, Henry Veley a retired RCMP had his homestead broken into just this spring. and the new guy Justin on the corner of Veley and Henderson had his place broken into..almost all break ins the items stolen were less than the insured deductible so we residence on Henderson Road go without.
