Mind you, as so many Worcester Park stories start off here on the blog and end up in the Sutton Guardian a week later, it's not the greatest of losses.
Also the Sutton Guardian is available to read in its online format, which is great for those who still want their fix but proves absolutely useless for lining cat baskets and wrapping breakables in. Shame.
What I do miss, though, are confusingly bizarre gems like this one on the latest letters page, from F Leimil of Worcester Park:
"...In January 2008 I noticed broken glass on the corner of my road. As I have a dog I went and swept it up myself. Five months later my dog died of old age.
Concentrate on the essentials. Let's concentrate on the vandals.
On a different subject, remember chocolate is toxic to dogs."
Answers on a postcard, please.
