The Newsletter lives on!

A personal view of The Newsletter’s AGM
by Pam Hopkins

There were 18 people at The Newsletter’s AGM on Thursday 29 November, which included 13 members of the public and 5 committee members. At the end of the meeting there were 9 ‘public’ and 9 committee members.

So The Newsletter continues, much to the relief of many residents who value the quarterly magazine, including myself, a former editor (1994 – 2012).

The magazine has always provided an insight into a 20th and 21st century English village. It includes, amongst so many subjects: local clubs and pub news, comments from the four political layers, advertising by local tradesmen, village charities, historical articles, religious comments, sporting achievements, the school’s progress and massive amounts of information of what’s happening, or going to happen, or has happened, in the village’s social calendar.

The new committee consists of:

Chair: Jane Tysoe
Secretary: Joy Wilson
Treasurer: Sylvia Pitts
Distribution: Brenda McCraith
Advertising: Lynette Litman
Submissions Co-ordinator: Paul Johnson
Layout Editor: Charlotte Mackay
Members: Sandie Allott, Terry Teale

Contact information for individual members will be available in the next issue – publication mid-February – in the meantime, The Newsletter’s email address is:
