Is anyone missing a meerkat garden ornament?
The Riv noticed the meerkat perched on one of the stone pillars at St Mary’s Catholic Church on Wednesday afternoon.
It sat on one of the four gate pillars in place of a missing iron cross.
The church’s secretary Margaret Hart has been researching into the history of the gate for the church bulletin.
While she found that the gate has been standing for 100 years, she said that no one knows how or when one of the iron crosses was removed.
Mrs Hart also said that no one knows how or when the meerkat took it’s throne.
‘‘I don’t know how long it’s been there. I only noticed it this morning (Thursday). Maybe it will stay there and walk into church one day.’’
