I would personally like to thank all of you: very much who sent articles for the March Newsletter on time and before as it made my job so much easier. Articles and adverts were frequently moved about to fit into the pages before the final draft was ready to go. This time I had 48 pages, the Parish Council had agreed a quote for 44 and I managed to tweak it to the 44pages. (whew) I am always relieved when it is finished. There is a huge amount of interesting content within it this time so I hope residents take the time to look through it and save the copy for future reference. I would also like to ask parents and grandparents and children’s groups to look at the Little Acorns Page and enter the children for the competition. The Newsletter is with the printers and hopefully everyone in the Parish will receive a copy the first week in March, if you do not; then please contact the Clerk Lesley Bannister 01424 882800 she also needs to know if your house has changed name.
