Before I begin as your new editor, I would like to say a huge ‘thank you’ to Andrea Wood for all her hard work and dedication as Editor to our wonderful village newsletter. Andrea gave me a very warm welcome in her last issue – the November edition – and I hope I can fill her shoes and live up to expectations.
As Andrea mentioned, I was a graphic designer for many years, so you may notice a few visual changes as you browse this and future editions of the newsletter. This is a double issue, so remember to pick up your next copy at the very end of Jan / beginning of February. It seems a far way off, but we all know how quickly the Christmas season whizzes by.
Along with the usual over-eating and festivities, I am particularly looking forward to carol singing around the village and the primary school’s Nativity performance which has been written wonderfully by our very own Richard and Nicola Miners. They have done an amazing job in writing both the script and original songs for the production which will include performances from every child at the school. All of our children and the teachers at Cheriton Bishop have been working extremely hard to bring Christmas cheer and make us proud. I work part-time at the School, so I am hoping to get myself a front row seat, and as the newsletter editor – I feel I am duty-bound to write a rave review!
I would like to thank everyone who submitted copy for this edition of the Newsletter, and I hope you all continue to make this an interesting and informative read for the community, from the community.
New Year Celebrations
The heavy rain and strong winds at the beginning of last month meant that there were a lot of cancelled events on Guy Fawkes night. However, there may be a few fireworks let off as we head into 2020, so remember to keep your pets inside for the evening where possible.
I wish you all a very merry Christmas and a happy new year for 2020!
