This issue of the Village Newsletter marks 6 years since our first issue.
As someone who has been involved with the newsletter since that first issue I am delighted that the decision the Parish Council took at that time has stood the test of time.
Lots of you will remember “The Rudd” which was launched in November 1991 by Lorna McCullough and was acknowledged as “an informative vehicle that keeps villagers updated on events-happenings- gossip etc”. When publication ceased in November 2008 it was rumoured that a commercially funded newsletter was going to appear. After waiting for a year with no newsletter appearing the Parish Council took up the challenge of producing one.
With each issue we aim to continue to share events, happenings and the odd sprinkle of gossip! Thanks go to everyone who contributes to the content and to all of you who pick up your paper copy or read it on line. Long may we continue.
