Villagers warn gay couple, take your wedding far from the village (photos)

A gay couple were sent a homophobic letter warning them they should have their wedding far away from their village.

Callum Hodge and Ashley Jenkins announced their engagement and received nothing but love and support from friends and family.

They planned to hold their wedding reception in their home village of Norton Malreward in Somerset which has a population of just 246.

But Callum's mum was devastated when an anonymous note dropped through her letterbox claiming it was the "consensus of the village" the party should be held somewhere else.


The homophobic author said Callum "should be ashamed of himself for putting his grandparents through this".

It said he would no longer "be welcome in heaven" and said his mum Janie needed to lead him down a "new path".

Police say they are investigating the letter as potential hate mail.

It was four months before the wedding reception held at Callum's parents' private barn conversion that Janie - a post lady - received a letter.

It attacked the plans to hold the reception in the village after the couple tied the knot in nearby Bristol.

Janie didn't tell a soul about the letter and kept it to herself until after the wedding in July - which professional dog walker Callum says was everything he dreamt it'd be.

But she says she spent the lead up to the big day worried sick villagers were plotting a riot or protest that would spoil what's supposed to be the best day of her son's life.
