June 2014 Editorial

        Currently enjoying a beautiful spell of warm, sunny weather, let’s hope it can be like that for the many events planned over the next few weeks – fetes, open gardens, bar-b-cues and a World War I Exhibition to mention a few.   Make a note of the dates on your calendars!

       My editorial is always a place for thanks and my biggest thank you this time must be to the Parish Council for their very generous financial support and encouragement.

       It is amazing that the August issue will mark the 25th anniversary of the Newsletter – can I really have been producing it for a third of my life!                              

       Always good to hear from mail readers and following the April issue, it was lovely to hear from Eric Leworthy.   Eric was delighted to see mention of Maurice Draper and Don Thirkell and remembers happy days with them at school and in the church choir.

                Once again we send our best wishes to anyone not feeling their best and to Pat who had a dramatic winching out of the Sterridge Valley after breaking her ankle.

We extend a very  warm welcome to all newcomers to the village and wish those leaving us happiness in their new homes.

       Another lovely cover from Debbie and drawings, as always, from Paul, a colleague from my days at Ilfracombe Arts College who has been regularly illustrating the Newsletter since 1990.   Paul is retiring at the end of this term but has kindly said he will continue to illustrate our articles.   Thank you Paul,  we wish you and Chris every happiness in the future – you’ll soon be wondering how you found time to go to work!

       Thank you, of course, to everyone who has contributed to this issue and please keep the articles coming.   For August they should be at the Shop, Chicane or e-mailed to me as soon as possible and by Wednesday 9th July at the latest.

       My belated thanks and apologies to Gary, John Pearce, Don and Mick Bowden for their help with the article about Farmer Lerwill and Lower Rowes Farm in the April issue.
