Home - Well here I am back home with my family. My trip to Canada while being enjoyable was also emotional as so much was happening. Hopefully things will settle down now and they can all get on with their lives without too much stress. It is good to be home and catch up with my friends. I am also looking forward to continuing to keep you informed of the goings on around our three villages. If you have articles of any kind you wish to share with my readers, please contact me on 01435 882107 or email marybarrytaylor@hotmail.co.uk
