Lost Whistles

A message received from Richard Hewison about lost whistles at the AGM.

On arriving home from the AGM yesterday, I realised that my whistles were not round my neck, in any pockets nor anywhere in the car, 
I used them to excercise 3 of our dogs in the Lunch Hour and remember taking them off together with my coat when we got back to the car. 
blue tape lanyard ( Terra EcpSystems embroidered in white) a retriever whistle, a spaniel whistle and a little stainless steel pill containing capsule.
If you could please forward this to the village hall caretaker and those of the committee who stayed to the end clearing up.
Thank you
