Latest Issue - March 2018
As always, it’s a fascinating task to briefly take over editing the magazine from the capable hands of Chris. I’m always reminded of the incredible variety of activities that happen in our smallish community.
I can’t pass up the opportunity to mention two items I’ve an interest in. The Children’s allotment starts up again at the end of the month. This is a fun couple of hours for the kids to do some gardening, crawling and running around getting muddy, and adults to have a bit of a chat. Our group of regular attendees is always welcoming to anyone who’d like to come along to have a go. There’s no commitment to coming every month and we always have a cup of coffee and a snack.
Many of the children in the Parish attend Kingsland CE Primary school where the PTA work tirelessly to provide much needed extra funds. I’ve recently started using ‘easyfundraising’ while online shopping. With this you can activate donations to the PTA. These are a small percentage of the cost of your purchase (usually 1% or 2%), all funded by the retailer. It’s very easy to use and even a few extra pounds a year makes a real difference to the school.
With this edition you should finally have the latest ‘Who’s Who? And Organisations. Chris will be back as editor for the next edition in May.
Clarification from the last edition: The Community Shop paid for a gate on one of the village paths but do not augment Eardisland Memorial Walks funds in any way.
