October 2017 Editorial
back at the issues of ten and twenty years ago, some things never change!
In 2007, we were again complaining of a
wet summer but unlike today, as I write this we are having torrential rain, we
enjoyed a warm and sunny September!
In 1997, you did not have to suffer a
message from the editor! We were sadly
paying tribute to Diana, Princess of Wales, as we have been this year, 20 years
after her death. Our W.I., under Vi Kingdon's Presidency, were enjoying their monthly meetings;Dave Beagley was
baffling us with his Crossword; the
Wine Circle was about to have a taste of Rioja, presented by Tony Summers;AA of BL had landed safely after her intrepid
sky dive;'Farewell to Hong Kong' was
the theme for the Globe [village] float, winning 1st in Class and Best Overall
at both Ilfracombe and Barnstaple Carnivals, and Tom told us about the Harvest
Festival of the 1st October 1949. PP of
DC had not embarked on her Movers and Shakers but told us about A Bit Of Hungarian Slap & Tickle! Also included were News from the Church,
Letter from our Rector, Keith, Reports from the Parish Council and Manor Hall,
and the Local Walker took us to the White House on Horsey Island
. .. things don't change!
