December 2014 Editorial

         December and Christmas is nearly upon us.   Following a good summer and lovely autumn, winter and Christmas has almost caught us unawares!

         We extend, as always, a warm welcome to all newcomers to the village and wish those not feeling at their best to get well soon, especially our centenarian contributor, Trevor of the Twitters, who recently fell and unfortunately broke his arm.   Currently at Bideford, we hope he’ll be home again very soon.

         The Newsletter Fun Quiz was a case of quality not quantity.   But hopefully those who braved a nasty wet and windy night enjoyed themselves.   Sincere thanks to Ann and Phil and all helpers and participants, whose generosity made a nice sum of £182 for the Newsletter.

         Congratulations to all those involved with our Community Shop and Post Office, both past and present, for reaching 10 years – long may it go on serving us!

         As always I thank everyone who has contributed to this December and Christmas issue and throughout the past year.   Once again your Christmas messages, enhanced by Debbie’s penguins [echoes of Monty and the John Lewis Christmas advert for WWF] will boost funds for both the Manor Hall and the Newsletter.   The Christmas Cover is also Debbie’s delightful work – thank you.

         There are lots of festive events planned over the coming weeks, so make a note of them on your calendars and in your diaries and enjoy!   After Christmas as well – Soup and Pud Evening, Line Dancing and a Pamper Day.

         Items for the February issue will be needed as soon as possible and by Friday, 9th January at the latest, but in the meantime my best wishes to you all and your families for a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
