Many thanks to all those who donated a shoebox of presents which will bring great happiness to a child somewhere in the world this Christmas. 100 were eventually sent from here. Thanks also to those people who over the year have been busy knitting mittens, hats and scarves for the charity as apart from helping keep children warm the mittens - all with faces - may well provide a 'friend' for a child in need.

Christmas will be only a few weeks away by the time you read this. For most it will be a time a great joy and family celebrations but a number of people will be alone and for some people within our community it will be their first without a loved one. Our thoughts are with them all.

Very many thanks to all who responded to my call for empty drinks cans to be sold for recycling to help finance our grandaughter's venture next year. She plans to go with her college to give sports training to youngsters in South African Townships.

Anyone interested in joining a casual walking group?  A small group of older people meet once a month on a Sunday morning, and usually drive to a pub, walk for about 2 hours (4 to 5 miles) and end up back at the pub for lunch.

It's that time of year again, Christmas, it is a nice time of year, but they come around too quickly.  First I should thank all those who turned out and helped with the Big Litter Pick, across the whole District there where 28 Parishes that took part during the Autumn, increasing every year, out of 48 Parishes. What is noticeable is that not so much rubbish is being picked up, I think that the majority of our Community is being more careful in dropping rubbish. Unfortunately, there is a few that are not so careful, thanks must go to all those who do clear up behind the more careless. We will have another clear up in the Spring.
