Smiles not Tears

DISAPPOINTMENT has turned into smiles for four-year-old Niall Wilson.

For after someone stole the youngster’s pedal tractor, kind-hearted villagers at New Luce had a whipround and bought him a new one. And a local farmer produced a model slurry tank to be towed at the back.

The sound of Niall’s tractor trundling down Main Street was well known to residents. So everyone wondered what had happened when silence descended. Then the word got out – the tractor had gone from outside the youngster’s home at 21 Main Street.

Dad Stuart told the "Free Press"

"We thought at first someone had taken it as a prank but when we realised it had gone we were pretty sick. It was a well used, well loved toy".
