Guess where Bill’s next stop was on his recent trip to the States? The clue is in the witch’s hat rather than the two pooches he collected along the way!

Salem's Scot

Bill has returned from a successful trip to America and one of the cities he visited was Salem, Massachusetts. Although famed for the Salem Witch Trails, Bill did not see any……..or if he did was too polite to say so!
