On October 12, I took my 93-year-old mum for a lunch at the Croxley Cafe in Croxley Green. It was there after she had a very nice meal that she fainted. This is not the first time it has happened. She was helped by an off-duty woman police officer called Caroline I believe. She made sure that Mum was okay when she came around after a very short time, and looked after her while I fetched the car from the car park across the road. Mum was absolutely fine afterwards. I hope Caroline reads this, or someone who knows her, so that she knows how grateful I am. Thank you.

Also to the staff in the cafe, a big thanks as well. Always a pleasure to have a meal there.
