June 2021 Editorial

wish everyone happiness in their new homes.
And for those not up to feeling as bright as they might, please get well
Paul for his lovely cover and many illustrations in this issue, and for his
support and dedication to our Newsletter, illustrating every issue since No. 7
in August 1990 - 30 years in all! Thank
you, too, Debbie for your continued support and your illustrations in this and
very many issues.
long-term support is also much appreciated.
Thanks to Pam we have learnt about 93 incredible Movers and Shakers and
Tom has shared his postcard collection with us in 191 views, just one short of

mouth-watering recipes have you baked - try the latest white chocolate and rose
gateau - or reflected with Steve 99 times?
Sadly, not his 100th this issue as he has been unwell - get well soon, Steve,
and the ton next time! The weather -
that wonderful topic of conversation - has been wet and windy, hot and cold,
sunny and frost, as reported for us on 132 occasions by Simon. And we mustn't forget Tony, our nonagenarian
who has reminisced since just before 2000.
thanks to you all, without your support and contributions, the Newsletter would
be much poorer. But I must also thank
everyone who contributes and has contributed with interesting articles and
those who report on the happenings of the church, the shop and other groups.
slacking please! Items and articles for
the August issue, as the Newsletter starts its 33rd year, are welcome as soon
as possible please and by Friday, 9th July, at the latest - thanks.
life is easing and events and activities starting up again, please check that
the details given are still relevant.
safe and enjoy the summer and longer evenings. Ed.
