I WOULD like to say a big thank you to the person who found a delicate ribbon cross and chain in Marks and Spencer's on December 22.

I had retraced my steps to where I had been on what was a very busy day without success.

The only place I hadn't inquired was Marks and Spencer's, which had been my last shop on the day, until last week, where I was truly overwhelmed when the very kind member of staff reunited me with my cross.

The cross is very precious to me in many ways, so to the very kind person who handed it in I would like to say a heartfelt thank you.

Mrs J. V. Whelan
