His second challenge yesterday: His first having been entering the village quiz and being in the winning team. The second being his entry in the London Marathon when he duly completed the gruelling 26 mile course. When he announced his intention to compete most of those who knew him saw this as a non- starter, over the months his Father Christmas shape fined down and he was running round with our post. Norma Fears the Whitwell Postmistress accompanied Rosie's family to London to cheer him on. His son, Craig was competing, both supported the charity MACS, which supports children born with no eyes or very small ones, and their families. They both finished and notched up their 26 miles. Congratulations Rosie and Craig.
