It’s just coming into April as we think of emerging from “Lockdown 3”. We were so pleased that we could get back to our regular printed monthly magazine back in October last year. And we managed to print four issues in a row. But with this new lockdown we are again limiting ourselves to an online version – feeling it would be irresponsible to ask our distributors to go round the village delivering copies of what would inevitably be a thinner magazine at this time. We hope you enjoy this alternative – promising that we plan to return to a printed version as soon as we safely can. If all goes well, that will be the May issue distributed at the end of April.

Please do get in touch with the editors at if you wish to contribute any articles or other items of interest.

We are always collecting new photos, so do see what we have in Your Photos as well as our specials for April in April Weather.
