April 2015 Editorial

Firstly, a warm welcome to all newcomers to the village wishing you happiness in your new homes. We are also sad to say some goodbyes, and again we wish you well in your new homes.

Secondly, get well wishes to those who have not been feeling too well lately and those who have succumbed to the lingering 100 day coughs and colds!

Finance the generous donations following the February issue are very welcome as are the subscription renewals and donations from the mailing readers, whose kind words are also much appreciated: I always enjoy reading it every page is interesting.

The uncertainties of running a Pamper Day were, on the day, soon blown away! The response was incredible both girls and guys and the pamperers were all kept busy from start to finish, taking appointments to fit everyone in. Sincere thanks to them Lesley, Mary, Jenny, Louise, Delphine, Jane and Mo. A big thank you, too, for help in the kitchen and keeping the event running smoothly to Fran, Denny, Wendy, Jane and Jan.

Although no more pampers could have been fitted in, a few more people enjoying cake and coffee, light lunches and cream teas, a net profit of 300 was raised, with 200 going to the North Devon Hospice and 100 to the Newsletter.

Thank you to everyone who came and enjoyed the day. That also goes to everyone who joined in the Knit In. Along with many colourful strips, the Hospice will benefit by a further 130.

The recommended book to read following the Local Walk in the February issue unfortunately got lost in the printing! It is: Wild Flowers of Braunton Burrows by Mary Breeds.


The Newsletter has had a website for more than ten years now and again I must emphasise that pictures and photographs are so much better when viewed this way.

But now the Village also has its own new look Website;, with new features for use by parishioners, namely a Village Noticeboard to display Hot News and a further page for Village News. There will be pages on Holidays with links to holiday business sites as well as a Services Director for other village businesses.

Thanks are due to Jim Constantine for getting this on-line and he would like to hear from anyone with suggestions for a more informative content or any other comments [01271] 882928.


My thanks, as always, to everyone who has contributed to this issue. It would also be nice to hear from some new contributors for the June issue, for which items will be required as soon as possible and by Monday, 11th May, at the latest please.
