February 2018 Editorial
Although we are now well into the new
year, as this is the first issue of 2018, I wish all readers and their families
a happy, healthy and peaceful year ahead.
Congratulations to the Parish Council
and thanks for the delightful Christmas lights around the church and in the
square, and thanks to the many Christmas messages and the very generous
donations, the Manor Hall hopes to be lit up too next year.
Thank you to the Parochial Church
Council for their kind donation and Richard and Be for theirs following the
sale of Christmas trees.
The wet and unpleasant weather has
brought the inevitable coughs and colds and what is called Aussie flu.To all sufferers, and I know personally how
nasty it is, get well wishes, and that goes to everyone not feeling at their
best at present.
A warm welcome to all newcomers, we
wish you, and all those who have left the village, happiness in your new homes.
Regular readers may have noticed the absence
recently of Rural Reflections.
Unfortunately, Steve has been suffering from a debilitating case of
double vision.It is understood that
there has been some improvement, and we hope that continues.We send him all good wishes and look forward
to hearing from him again before too long.
The days are getting longer and bulbs
are popping up, so spring must surely be on its way!British Summer Time starts on the 24th/25th
March, so don't forget to put your clocks forward an hour.
Once again the regulars have sent in
their articles and it is lovely to have a return of Weather or Not.Thank you all.However, it would be nice to hear from some
new writers!Why not send in a
favourite recipe, poem or photograph, or tell us about that special day or
trip?Items for the April issue, due
out before easter, would be very welcome as soon as possible and by Wednesday,
7th March, at the latest please.Thank
