June 2017 Editorial

Although as I write this we have had a couple of very wet days, it was almost needed as we have enjoyed several weeks of nice, warm, sunny and dry weather, and unbelievably by the time you are reading this, we'll be just three weeks short of the longest day!

It has been a sad time in the village lately and our thoughts are with all those families affected. Our thoughts are also with everyone not feeling well and hope you will be better soon.

We extend a very warm welcome to all newcomers to the village and hope you will be very happy in your new homes.

My editorial is always a place of thanks and on this occasion, I must give my sincere thanks to our Parish Council, for their interest in the Newsletter and very generous financial support and encouragement. A reminder, however, that each copy costs approximately £1.50 and donations to ensure it continues are not only welcome, but also essential!

One observant reader noticed that Paul's February 2016's snowdrop cover had become April 2017's bluebell wood! Did anyone else spot this?

This issue's cover, again by Paul, shows Watermouth cove and harbour, one of his pictures on display in the recent Ilfracombe Art Trail. Don't forget, Paul's pictures - originals or prints, framed or not - are available to purchase. If you are interested, do please get in touch with me, either by 'phone or e-mail. It is hoped that there might be another display of Paul's work [and those of the two village art groups], later in the year. The Newsletter is extremely lucky to have its own Artist in Residence. Thank you, Paul.

More thanks! Thank you to everyone who has contributed to this issue - keep the contributions coming! For August, when we start the 28th year, they should be at the Shop or Chicane or e-mailed to me as soon as possible and by Wednesday, 11th July at the latest. Thank you.

Let's hope that in the weeks ahead, we'll all benefit from some true summer weather with only just enough rain to keep the grass and blooms going! Utopia?
