June 2019 Editorial

I hope you all had a good Easter - we certainly could not complain about the weather, it was perfect! And as I work on this June and July issue, it's lovely again.

Referring to the old country rhyme . . .

If the ash is out before the oak, Then the summer will be a soak!

If the oak is out before the ash, Then the summer will be a splash!

. . . unusually, the oak is well ahead of the ash this year, perhaps we might get a good summer, let's hope so.

Following the recent boundary changes, when we became part of the Marwood ward, and the elections, we congratulate and welcome Joe Tucker as our new District Councillor. In welcoming Joe, we must also thank Yvette Gubb and John Lovering who have served us so well for many years. We send them both our best wishes, Yvette who continues to represent Combe Martin and John on his retirement .

Congratulations and thanks must go to Julia, the members of the Manor Hall Trust, and all the voluntary helpers on their recent refurbishment of the Manor Hall following essential repairs. The hall looks and feels lovely - clean, light and airy - and their thank you tea was a deliciously enjoyable afternoon.

A very warm welcome to the newcomers to the village. We look forward to meeting you and hope you will be very happy in your new homes. That wish also goes to those leaving us for homes further afield.

There have been quite a few villagers spending time in hospital recently and to them and anyone not feeling a hundred per cent just now, take care and get well soon.

Without those who put pen to paper and send in articles, there wouldn't be a newsletter. A big thank you to everyone who has contributed not only to this issue but also to everyone who has contributed over the years. Unbelievably, the August issue marks the newsletter's 30th birthday!

Items for that issue are welcome as soon as possible and by Wednesday, 10th July at the latest - thank you.

Enjoy the events planned for the summer months and happy reading.
