December 2016 Editorial
Here we are in December again with
Christmas only days away.Are you ready
or will you, like me, panic to get everything ready in time?
We extend a warm welcome to all recent
newcomers and hope that you will be very happy here in the village, and our
best wishes also go to everyone currently feeling under the weather.
Talking of which, we've had some lovely
sunny autumn days and the autumn hues of the trees have been beautiful.
As well as thanking everyone who has
contributed to this bumper issue and throughout the year, I must thank Maureen
and Pat for the donation from their Coffee Morning and Gary for the donations
from the sale of his book.Stuck for
ideas for presents?How about Gary's A
Potted History of Berrynarbor or one of Tom Bartlett's Postcard View Books?
My special thanks to Nigel, who in
spite of current problems [see his article, page 18], has enhanced this issue
with his wintry weather covers, and Debbie for the border for the Christmas
Messages, which will again boost the funds of both the Newsletter and the Manor
And so to the new year and the February
issue.Items will be welcome as early
as possible but by Wednesday, 11th January, at the latest please.Thank you.
My best wishes to you all and your
families for a Merry Christmas and a happy, healthy and peaceful New Year.
