Horseback patrol units make their way around the neigh-bourhood
Where there is a horse, there is a neigh.
That was certainly the case in Long Stratton this week when residents were delighted to receive a free delivery of sunflower seeds – from Norfolk Police officers on horseback.
Children watched on in hay-mazement as the two officers made their way through the town, distributing seed packets to households in a gesture of support for the country’s emergency services.
A force spokesman said: “Over the last few weeks, sergeants Jason Crisp and Hannah Holmes have been organising patrols with the horse unit for areas across south Norfolk.
“The team has also been involved in delivering sunflower seeds to homes where sunflowers are displayed in the window, in support of the emergency services.
“All of these visits have been very positive and welcomed by residents – people love seeing the horses.”
