August 2014 Editorial

So, it was 25 years ago that Issue No. 1, just 20 pages, rolled off the duplicator!

         There have been many changes since then, both quantity and quality, but hopefully for the enjoyment of readers.

         Some regular articles have been running almost as long – Tom’s Old Berrynarbor will make 25 years with the October issue, and our Local Walker has been doing just that for 24 years, as has Paul with his illustrations,.   Thank you all, your support has been marvellous and much appreciated.

         My thanks and appreciation to the other regulars hot on their heels – Weather or Not, Movers and Shakers, Tony’s Tales and Rural Reflections and not forgetting the reports from the various groups and Wendy’s delicious recipes.

         . . . . and all have contributed to this birthday issue.   The cover, the work of our talented Debbie, who has also been illustrating from the early days, and once again it has been sponsored by Mike and Sue Richards of Napps, as they have for the last eight years.

         We have already enjoyed many of the summer events but there are still some to come – the Berry Revels, Church Fayre and the WW1 Exhibition.   So make a note of the dates and give them your support.

         Welcome to all newcomers to the village and farewell to those on the move – we wish you all happiness in your new homes.   We also hope that those in poor health will be feeling better soon.

         Articles and items for the October issue are welcome any time but they will be needed by Wednesday, 10th September at the latest please.

         Enjoy the rest of the summer – the evenings are drawing in!
