I JUST wanted to say a huge thankyou to everyone involved in getting my pet raccoon Elmo home safe and well (last week’s Dispatch: ‘Reunited At Last...Pet Raccoon Found After Three Months’).

Especially, I would like to thank Ms Underwood, who spotted Elmo in her garden on Graingers Terrace in Hucknall on Saturday September 3.

Also the Hucknall and Mansfield police force, especially Sgt Phil Ridley, dog-handler Pc Gough, Pc Barnett and Chief Constable Julia Hodson — all of whom were involved hands-on in getting Elmo home.

I must also thank Sandra Vaughn. Without Sandra, we wouldn’t of had the publicity and resources available. She has helped right from the start, every day, and has been amazing!

Elmo is settling in great back home. The people of Hucknall have been amazing and helped so much. They are a great community, even if it sometimes doesn’t show.
