February 2017 Editorial

Although we are now well into the new year, as this is the first issue of 2017, I wish you all a happy, healthy and peaceful year ahead. A warm welcome to all newcomers and for you and for those who have moved away, we wish you happiness in your new homes.

The winter and festive season has brought with it the usual colds and unpleasant, lingering coughs, but you have been in good company! We send get well wishes to everyone not at their best and hope you will be feeling better very soon.

Although the mornings still seem rather dark, the evenings are definitely lengthening; the bulbs are popping up everywhere, the birds are singing to welcome the spring, which IS on its way! British Summer Time begins on the 25th/26th March, so remember to put your clocks forward an hour or you might miss the Mothering Sunday Service at St. Peter's.

Many of you have expressed concern and sympathy with Nigel on his misfortune due to the fire in Exeter, but have also much appreciated his covers of the December issue.

For those with computers, don't forget that the Newsletter has its own website: . Although t it does not show the full issue, the pictures, photographs, etc., can be seen with far better definition. In January it had 212 visitors including one from Beijing, another from Taipei in Taiwan and two from Carnegie in Australia. Go on, take a look!

The bumper crop of Christmas messages and the very generous donations have once again given the funds of both the Manor Hall and Newsletter a substantial boost. Thank you.

This is another full issue thanks to the contributors, especially the regulars and our Artist in Residence, Paul, whose cover of Braunton Marsh reflects the Local Walk. His illustrations help to make our Newsletter rather special. Thank you, Paul.

I'll be looking for another batch of articles for the April issue, which will come out ahead of Easter this year. It would be good to have some new support - tell us about your Christmas or holiday, your favourite poem or photograph, or that special Granny's recipe that's been passed down the family. Items will be very welcome as soon as possible, but by Wednesday, 8th March at the latest please. Thank you.

Finally, please help support the wonderful work of our North Devon Hospice by joining the Knit and Natter [even if you only natter!] on Monday, 27th February.
