When you say last seen in the Square at around 3pm, i guess that's quite a wide area for a tortoise, can you be more specific, I doubt he crossed the road or there'd have been a traffic jam someone would have seen something. Hope you find the little guy, probably under some leaves or something, maybe got trapped in one of the building sites?

Really appreciate your input. Thank you.

We live at Nr 14, The Square, the house with the huge wisteria on the front. Sadly the gate was left open and she wandered out. The photo posted of her was taken in front of the old Inwood Stoves shop.

We have looked everywhere, and put 60 posters up round the village. We will of course keep looking, as you say they are great at hiding.

She is greatly missed. Belong to my grand children. We also have her sister, the two of them have never been parted.

how big is the tortoise

Sue is about the size of an adults hand. Her shell is quite pronounced. She is very friendly, used to a lot of handling.

Chiltlee Manor has an overgrown composting and garden waste area close to the road-that would be a good hiding place.

Hi if you don't find it and decide you want another one please let me know as I have 2 and both girls and don't get on that well together

It is so hot at the moment and she may well have hunkered down somewhere cool. They do dig in. She will start moving again when the weather cools down but keep looking .good luck hope you find her.

Rob we would gladly rehome one of your Tortoises if need be.

Re: Lost tortoise in the square
- Karin (27th Jun 2020 07:29:24)

Hi Rob, that is so very kind of you to offer one of your tortoises. We are not in a space at the moment to think about replacing Sue. We still hope and pray we will find her. But thank you for your very kind though. Karin

We have also been keeping an eye out when we go out . Fingers x you find her soon .

I am so sorry Sue has gone "walkabout."
You will be surprised at how far a Tortoise can travel! They can cover quite some ground and she maybe further away than anticipated.
I really really hope Sue is found very soon, safe and well and no worse for her summer adventure xxx

REWARD of £50 to anybody who finds Sue the tortoise.
