They say that if something exists, somebody somewhere collects them and that’s certainly true of Times readers who have been sharing their collections this week.

Louise Partner, of Braintree, has a vast collection of Betty Boop figurines and memorabilia which she has been building for seven years.

Retired BT engineer Bill Chewter, of Black Notley, has an impressive collection of Goebel Monks and Cardinals.

He began collecting the German porcelein figures about seven years ago and has now amassed more than 80 salt and pepper pots, table lighters and other utensils.

See this week's Braintree Times for the full story.
