June 2015 Editorial

       By the time you read this impossibly we’ll be just a few weeks short of mid-summer and the longest day!   We’ve not had a hard winter but the cold wind has persisted even on the warmest of April and May days.   The cuckoo has been heard in the Valley and the swallows are back.

         Newsletter funds are currently healthy.   Mailing subscriptions have all but a few been renewed with more than 90 readers receiving Newsletters in the post and more reading the abridged version on the internet.   A big thank you to the Parish Council for their continued generous financial support and encouragement, which are much appreciated.

         We welcome all newcomers to the village and say sad good-bye’s to those leaving and we wish everyone happiness in your new homes.   And for those not feeling as bright as they might, please get well soon.

         Thank you to all who came along to view Paul’s paintings at the Manor Hall.   I thank him for his dedication and support of our Newsletter, illustrating every issue since No. 7 in August 1990 – 24 years in all!

         Other contributors, too, have given incredible support.   Our Local Walker has been walking locally and even further afield for 150 issues; Tony’s stories and memories reached 100 in April and Sue and Simon also reach 100 weather reports with this issue. Berrynarbor is now 26 years older than Tom’s first article in October 1989 and I wonder how many of Wendy’s 60 recipes you’ve baked and tasted!    Pam has been moving and shaking [but is OK] for nearly as long and Steve has been reflecting in 68 issues!

         Thank you all, without your continued and regular help and support the Newsletter would be very much the poorer.   But, I must also thank everyone who contributes one-offs, other snippets and interesting articles.

         So, no slacking now please and articles for the August issue as soon as possible and by Tuesday, 13th July at the latest – thanks!

         Let’s hope the weather gets warmer for the outside events planned for June and July.
