|W.I. Book 1982
THE VILLAGE GOOSE.
For as long as anyone can remember there has been a goose at the house on the corner in Haversham. The present inhabitant of the goose shed is thirteen year old Janie. She is watchdog and companion for her owner, Mrs. Burt who has lived in the Village almost fifty years. [wriiten in 1982].
Mrs. Burt has a wealth of goose tales to tell of the various characters she has kept from the four goslings she started with, the gander she was persuaded to take from the lady at Castlethorpe and the goose which joined him from Hanslope. The day she and her husband had to race across the fields to catch straying geese made them decide on clipping wings to avoid further flights.
No doubt each of these geese have their place in local memory and we all hope that long myy there be a Haversham Goose.
