Once upon a time the Red Geranium family moved to their new home in Comber. They lived happily in CRCP terrace opposite Supervalu. Sadly Mum & Dad Geranium are now very distressed because they have lost 13 of their children. They have been snatched from their home & a big gap is now felt amongst the family.
We hope this tale will have a happy ending for the family & maybe someone will help fill the gap in this loving Geranium family. The End
