From the Editor of the Newsletter – July and August 2022

This year is fying by! I can’t believe this is the introduction to the Summer edition. We had a busy month last month with the Platinum Jubilee Celebrations around the village, and this Summer, in and around the village, looks set to be just as jam-packed. There’s so much to do on our ‘What’s On?’ pages.

We’ve been having some very hot summer days recently, so remember to keep hydrated and to wear sun cream and a hat if you’re going out. I’ve been walking the dogs in the evening as the road is a little cooler on their paws. I will be taking them for long walks on the moors once we’ve broken up from school on Friday 22nd July. Can’t wait!

I’ve said it before, but it’s worth repeating that we are incredibly lucky to live in this part of the world, and I will be staycationing (as always). I am very grateful for all the good things in my life, as we all are. The only thing missing is The Old Thatch, and she is looking very sorry for herself at the moment. I ay pay her a visit during the school holidays to tidy up the front area and do a bit of weeding. I really do hope that we get a new landlord / lady in there soon, it’s such a waste and I really miss quiz nights. If anyone knows what is going to happen with the pub in the future, please let me know and I will put the information in the newsletter.

In the meantime, we have Open Mic Nights back, now at Higher Eggbeer on the first Wednesday of every month (see page 6). The first one will be on 6th July. The bar opens from 6pm, music starting at 8pm. I will definitely be attending as it’s such a wonderful venue and only a little bit further to walk. What a lovely way to start the month! I hope to see some familiar faces.
