Bury St Edmunds woman thanks two sisters for helping her following a fall





A woman has thanked two sisters for coming to her aid after she fell and injured herself in Bury St Edmunds town centre.

Marjorie Hayward, 82, was out shopping with her sister on January 6 when she tripped on a piece of paving stone near Marks and Spencer.

Mrs Hayward, who lives in Bury, fell, hitting her face on the ground and injuring her nose and chin. She doesn’t remember much of the incident, but believes the sisters were called Joanna and Juliana and had been walking behind her.

Mrs Hayward said: “They picked me up. They sat with me, one each side of me. My nose was pouring down with blood and they kept passing me tissues.

“Somebody got out of a car and put a blanket around me. It was absolutely freezing cold. They stayed with me the whole time until an ambulance came. They were so nice.”

Mrs Hayward was taken to West Suffolk Hospital where she stayed for four days.

To those that helped her she said: “I just want to say thank you very much for being so kind and staying with me in that cold weather.”
