Following last week’s article on the Wards, locals have dropped by New Road to speak with them.

The Traveller family had said they welcomed meeting with nearby residents.

Martin Williams visited the site over the weekend and “welcomed them to the village” with a bottle of wine and crate of beer.

In a post on the Spotted in Bromham Facebook page, the Wards said: “Thank you so much to the very kind gentleman who brought these over for us and welcomed us to the village. It means a lot to us we really appreciate your kindness.

"Thank you from Bridget and family.”

Others on Facebook said they would pop over for a coffee in the weeks to come.

The parish council has also issued an update online. They said: “The Parish Council is very disappointed to see the tone and content of recent posts on social media, and strongly condemns the use of such language.
