Stolen campervan - please can you help

Many of you know Tigermouse - our friend Eunice, either through her comments here or her own blogs.

Earlier this week she experienced the tragedy of seeing her beloved campervan driven away from her home, and was unable to catch up with the scum-bags who have taken not only her daily drive, but her holidays and every single bit of her camping gear.



She fears the contents will have been sold to fund a drug habit and the van burnt out and left somewhere, but on the wild and amazing off chance that is not what's happened, then her little Wendy House on Wheels might well appear on a campsite this weekend - despite the "British Summer', this is August Bank holiday.



If you should see it, please phone 999 - the police will do the rest.

The internet can be an absolutely wonderful thing, and whilst I might not utilise the ability to send messages all over the place via Facebook, I know many of my friends and blog visitors do, and I am posting this to ask if you would please, please share this either on social media, or on your own blog?

Here is a link to an article in Eunice's local paper describing just how much has been stolen from her.

  1. that is really a sad situation- how awful to actually 'see' her van being taken and feel/be helpless to stop or even identify the thief- I wish I could do something, but the Big Pond between makes that impossible- I do, however, keep her in my thoughts and hope there is a happy resolution to the whole thing-I guess there are people who don't respect other people's property everywhere-
    meanwhile, back in this 'boiling place' I have made some broth pupsickles for my guest and both she and Olivia have slurped on some ... a big hit with one of them (calling no names but looking at a certain spoiled wench who might be set in her ways and whose name MIGHT begin with 'O' who feigned a chill when her tongue got cold)-
    the usual regards from here ... and Olivia might be thinking about a blog-

    1. Thank you Barb. Sadly "people are people" all over the world and there has always been a small group who would rather take someone else's possessions than get off their bottoms and work for their own.

      I am glad the pupsicles [great name, BTW!] were not a complete waste of time and am very much looking forward to "meeting" The Diva Known As Olivia when she makes her appearance on social media 😜 🐕 🐾

    1. Hi Mrs. Thank you so much for offering to share. Who knows - you share, one of your friends does the same, and "6 Degrees of Kevin Bacon" later, that van photo and reg. number is all over the place. Fingers crossed. 🥰

    1. Hi Eileen. Do you think you could ask Carol to share this on her Facebook groups please - I remember you have mentioned she's very active on FB.

    2. I have spoken to Carol today and sent her the link to the newspaper story. I will ask her to share the article but she only posts on dog rescue groups but we'll never know unless we try. Thanks Jayne.

    3. Thanks Eileen, and please thank Carol.
      You said she "only" posts on dog rescue groups, but some of those folk also have motorhomes and caravans - and go away at Bank Holidays . . . you are right that we have to try. xx

    1. Your country must be very different to ours Susan;
      sadly Eunice and I know the chances of her ever seeing her van or possessions again is slim to zero.

  7. Dear Jayne
    How horrible for your friend. Hopefully, someone might just spot the van over the bank holiday. Let's hope social media is a power for good.
    Best wishes

    1. You are right Ellie, social media can do great things it's just generally we only hear about the rubbish stuff. Fingers crossed and all that.

    1. Hi Jules, thank you. It's absolutely dreadful for Eunice, especially as she believes her van was deliberately targeted - plenty of other vehicles in her road which were newer, and worth more.

  10. That just plain sucks! Poor girl. Even if the van is recovered, its a good bet the contents won't be intact. Hugs to Eunice.
