April 2013 Editorial
We have ‘sprung forward’ and put the clock on
an hour but where is the spring? As I

first-ever centenarian contributor to the Newsletter – Trev.
I am also
delighted to be able to wish Debbie, on behalf of myself and all readers,
health and happiness in the future, for by the time you read this Debbie will
have married Pete Rigler at St. Olaf’s at
Exeter. Thankfully she says she
will continue to illustrate the Newsletter for us!
Faces come and
go in the village and to all newcomers and those who have left, all good wishes
for happiness in your new homes. All
good wishes go, too, to everyone who has been or is not well – ‘flu seems to
have struck many and thank you Paul for continuing to illustrate articles for
this issue whilst not feeling at your best.
And where would
the Newsletter be without the regular contributors? Thank you all.
. . . and the usual plea, articles for the June issue will
be welcome as soon as possible
and by Tuesday, 7th May at the VERY

as our printer is taking a well-deserved holiday towards the end of May and has
asked for copy earlier than normal. No
pressure for me then!
