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!
