One of the team who lives near the station has a pear tree in his garden. Trouble is, he doesn't like pears. I on the other hand like pears, but I don't have a pear tree. Now us coastguards like to help each other out, so when I got back to the station after our accident prevention patrol on Sunday I was pleased to find a big bag of pears waiting for me. Thanks Gareth.
Note: Library pictures only and not the actual pears supplied. In the case of the au pair, there never really was one at all. Well, I haven't got to the bottom of the bag yet, but I don't think there was.....
