David Bradbury, Wilsons Creek

Someone stole my trailer – or did they just take it knowing that as a long time community minded local I wouldn’t mind it being ‘borrowed’ for a few days?

It disappeared from Wilsons Creek turnoff near the golf course on Wednesday night. I’d left it there because I had to have my car fixed for rego in town. I’ve used it for the last 27 years to cart recycled materials to build our house at Wilsons Creek, countless loads of moo poo for our vege garden, gravel for our road and trips to the tip when we didn’t have garbage disposal up here.

It’s even taken trips to the waterhole with the kids in the back when you could get away with that.

I’d like it back, please, from whoever ‘borrowed’ it because it also has great sentimental value. My brother, who is dying from cancer, built it for me.

It’s metal grey in colour, and rego E9993. No questions asked. Can be dropped off either out front of Wilsons Creek School or where borrowed from. All will be forgiven.
