Mindless act
It was disappointing to read about the attack on wildlife at Balderton Lake (Children Blamed After Swan Shot In Head With Catapult, Advertiser, September 22).

What possesses someone to even think about such mindless acts of cruelty, never mind carry them out?

If they are ever caught they should have the book thrown at them.

Castle fit for king
NEWARK’S royal connections will be to the fore once again next month as the 800th anniversary of the death of King John is marked.

The monarch died at Newark Castle on October 18, 1216, and the events of that evening will be recreated in fine detail — even down to the terrible storm that was said to have raged at the time.

The event will be staged by the Liz Hobbs Group, while re-enactors from the Regia Anglorum group will depict the King’s final hours.

It promises to be another spectacular event in the castle grounds.
