ANYONE out there got any sticklebacks to spare?
Salendine Nook reader Mrs Ellen Hawkins is making the unusual request.
She wants them for the family's large natural garden pond.
Two years ago the pond had to be renewed and the sticklebacks were lost.
Says Mrs Hawkins: "Our large frog residents are now building up but we miss the sticklebacks.
"Hoping a fellow gardener can help. We are willing to collect and transfer them, whether the amount is two or more."
If anyone can help, ring Mrs Hawkins on 01484-349052.
