The plea for compilers unfortunately did not result in a reply from the village, but Dave has. Some of you may remember that Dave, who has for some time done the printing for the Horticultural and Craft Show, and his wife, Ann, spent several years in the village, firstly at June Cottage and then at Brookside, leaving to live in Ilfracombe in 1996.

Thank you Dave for stepping in to help out.

CROSSWORD CORNER
Stanley Barnes

I was upset to learn from Patricia Carty, his niece, and Dorothy Grinall that Stanley had died peacefully in York at the age of 94 on Sunday, 29th November. Sadly he would not have received the December issue containing his General Knowledge Crossword Puzzle. Stanley was a great supporter of our Newsletter.

A single man, he was a confirmed bachelor, who loved his extended family. He was born in Walton-on-Thames and his connection with the village was that he was a grandson of our Blacksmith, Sam Harding. His mother, Nellie Harding, was one of Sam's family of seven and when Sam went off to serve in the First World War, his wife was concerned about Nellie and her family living in London, and so they evacuated and came to Berrynarbor, staying for a few years at Castle Hill.

His old Riley car was his pride and joy but as Head of P.E. at St. John's College, the University of Leeds, Stanley was also proud to have trained several well-known and successful rugby players, as well as the English Coach in the World Cup held in England in 1991.


It would seem that Stanley's crossword had you all baffled, or perhaps there was not enough time in the rush up to Christmas to put your thinking caps on? The £10 Book Token remains, therefore, to be won! So, have another go and this time one or two letters have been inserted to help you on your way! A longer time before the closing date of MONDAY, 22ND MARCH, should also help and I look forward to receiving some entries this time! Please send in your entry [however, many clues you have managed] in a plain envelope marked 'Crossword' and leave it either at the Shop or Chicane. If those who said they'd only managed a couple of clues had sent their forms in, someone would be reading a new book by now! The answers will be published in the April issue.

It was with deep sadness we learnt that Brian had died suddenly on the morning of the 18th January. He had, only a few days previously, delivered his crosswords for the coming year. I thank him most sincerely for keeping us all 'puzzling' since 1999, fifty eight puzzles in all. Our thoughts are with Sue and all his family at this time of sorrow.
