August 2018 Editorial
First, a warm welcome to all newcomers
to the village and farewell to those who are leaving - good luck and happiness
in your new homes. We also send get
well soon messages to those not feeling at their best right now.
Ten years ago, I wrote 'the least said
about the weather the better!' I could
almost say the same although for a very different reason! The beautiful weather has been a bonus for
village events but the prolonged drought is playing havoc with the grass and
gardens as well as sapping our energy.
Don't forget the annual Horticultural
& Craft Show takes place in just a couple of weeks. Have you got your entries ready? Do, please, give this event your support
and good luck to all the gardeners, crafters, cooks, photographers and artists.
Your support for the Easter Barton
Party raised £400 for Ovacome [the ovarian cancer charity] and Be and Richard
thank all those who attended and donated so generously.
Thanks to everyone's general support,
the Newsletter is going ahead and I don't think that in August 1989 anyone
thought it would still be going into its 30th year - amazing!
By the next issue, autumn will be
creeping up on us. Contributions for
October may be handed in as soon as possible and by Wednesday, 12th September -
thank you. Thank you, as always, to
everyone who has contributed to this issue.
