Eardisland Parish Magazine May 2017


It is with considerable sadness that I have to report the death of Dr Barry Ingham, late of Monk’s Cottage, on Easter Monday. Our condolences go to his wife, Margaret, family and friends.

I have also heard of the death of Marg Powell, wife of the late Doug Powell. Paul Selfe has written an appreciation, please see page 25. Both Marg and Doug were familiar faces in and around Eardisland, especially Doug as far as I was concerned, for he worked on Arrow Bank as an apprentice in the early 1960s, and was a regular visitor when the house was renovated in 1999/2000.

One of the trials of electronic life is changing one’s email address, especially when you consider details held by banks, insurance companies and retailers – all of which require endless security information to make account changes. Well, if you have or had an Orange email, it will cease on 31st May 2017. The emails affected are anything containing the word ‘orange’, ‘wanadoo’ and variations on ‘freeserve’ (fs, fsnet etc.). If you are affected you will need to change your email address – there are quite a few free ones to choose from - Orange suggests gmail. The EE/Orange website has links for all the details.
This means that my contact email is now This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. – please make a note of this because anything sent to my ‘freeserve’ address will not get through after the end of May.

I submitted my annual report for the Eardisland Parish Magazine to the Parish Council a couple of days ago. In this I thanked all those who write copy, are part of the management team, and the vital deliverers. A very well-earned thanks to all.
