dumped bicycle

Keith F in Maidensgrave
A bicycle has been dumped in the Bury Hill area.  If anyone has recently lost one or had one stolen, pm me with a description and if it matches you can collect it from me.  If no-one claims it by the end of the month it will be disposed of.
Teresa B
I reported to the police when I found one and then if not claimed by owner you can claim it or give it to local charity, My daughters got stolen I got that back but in the mean time found another and called the police
Shirley G
We had a bike dumped outside our house about a year ago and I phoned the police so they came and collected after a couple of days. I think they go into a sale if not claimed for a good cause.
