April 2019 Editorial
When I began working on this issue, we
were basking in an unusual spell of beautiful spring weather, but as I get
ready to go to print . . . what can I say?
And, what can be said about Brexit!
By the time you are reading this, we'll
have put the clocks forward and the evenings will have lengthened. The spring flowers, in the gardens and
hedgerows, are well advanced but sadly suffering from the wet and strong winds,
but at least they make a splash of cheerful colour.
There has been an excellent response
from readers who receive their copies in the post. Thank you all for your subscriptions,
donations and support of the Newsletter.
A big thank you, too, to Maureen and Pat for another enjoyable coffee
morning at Fuchsia Cottage in aid of Berry in Bloom and the Newsletter. Cakes to die for and a happy and warm
atmosphere. Take care of that leprechaun
Good wishes, as always, go to those
unwell and newcomers to the village; we
hope you feel better soon and happiness in your new homes.
For almost as long as there has been a
Newsletter, it has been enhanced by the illustrations of our Artist in
Residence, Paul, who doesn't even come from the village - he is a star! I am incredibly grateful to him for his help
and support. Hopefully, readers will
find time to support him and view his exhibition as part of the Ilfracombe Art
Trail, details appear later on.
Obviously, I am also extremely grateful
to everyone who contributes to the Newsletter in so many different ways,
especially the regular article writers - keep them coming! And let's have some new contributors
too. Items for the June issue would be
welcome as soon as possible and by the 6th May at the latest - thank you.
Wishing all readers a Happy Easter.
