This year’s Stone Town Mayor, Cllr Cathy Coillier, is no novice when it comes to walking blindfold up Stone’s High Street – in fact it was twice in two days. The second challenge on October 9th was posed by the Stafford & Stone Guide Dogs for the Blind Charity whe Cathy was asked to trust her safety to Pudsey – the two eyed Lab – who took Cathy (and the entourage) briskly from Market Square to the top of the town and back. The Gazette is delighted to announce that Cathy emerged unscathed from bot “blind tastings” and is now ware of the challenges faced daily by visually residents as they brave the High Street and pedestrian crossings.
