Gurnites that walk the riverside will probably have seen the punch bag that had been hanging from a tree for several months. Quite a few bairns had been using it for just that and having some fun lashing out at an object that was intended for that purpose. The punch bag is no more however.
Murd reports that the punch bag has been completely burnt on a makeshift fire. Gurnites will remember that Jingle Bangles had sent us in a picture suggesting that the punch bag was part of a secret training camp for planning dissidents who were preparing for a rammy at the Sandown charrette.
