February is our publication’s birthday month. “The Village Newsletter” was started in February 2010, in response to community requests for a new publication after the original incarnation of “The Rudd” ceased production in 2008
After 93 copies, The Village Newsletter was rebranded in November 2017. By popular demand, we returned to the old name – with the blessing of Lorna McCullough, who launched the original Rudd 26 years earlier in November 1991.
When The Rudd first began, Derek Kennedy welcomed it as an “…informative vehicle that keeps villagers updated on events, happenings, gossip etc.”
Whilst it now may have a different format and is also available online, we hope The Rudd will continue to keep “villagers updated” for many years to come.
