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
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
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.
