February 2020 Editorial

In December I wrote how unpleasant the weather had been for weeks and there has hardly been any let up since!Brendan is currently blowing a gale and lashing down with rain, and oh, if only we could send some of this down under to the poor folk in Australia suffering horrendous bushfires.

Christmas has come and gone.I hope you enjoyed the festive season without problems although I believe a number of unfortunate souls have suffered from flu like coughs.I hope you are now on the mend and I wish you and all readers a happy, healthy and hopefully peaceful 2020.

There are events planned to cheer up the dull February days.Berry in Bloom are holding a Fun Quiz and Supper on the 7th, the Craft Group will be hosting their annual Knit In for the North Devon Hospice on the 24th; and the Manor Hall committee will be tossing pancakes during the afternoon of Shrove Tuesday, the 25th.

Although the mornings still remain rather dark the evenings are drawing out and snowdrops are blooming and bulbs popping up through the sodden soil.The first day of spring is officially the 19th March, followed by Mothering Sunday on the 22nd.Gifts for Mother's Day, as well as Valentine's Day, will be in our Shop, and pots of bulbs and flowers on Josh Richards' stall at Moules Farm.

But don't forget to put your clocks forward an hour on the night of the 28th/29th March.

An interesting batch of articles for this issue and my thanks to all contributors but especially the regulars and Paul.Enjoy!

I'll be looking for another batch for April and Easter and these will be welcome as soon as possible and by Wednesday, 14th March at the latest. Thank you.
