Latest Issue - January 2019
Welcome to the first edition of the Eardisland Parish Magazine in 2019. I think it fair to say that it should be an interesting year at the national political level. What, I wonder, will I be writing at this time next year? I’ve no idea.
I always try to get things right in the magazine and I have a couple of corrections from the last edition. In the WW1 entry for Warren Peter Clowes it was mentioned that his father was the last Lord of the Manor. This should have been the late Lt. Commander Robert Simpson RN. (rtd). Further, reference was made to Wellington School, which should, of course, have been Wellington College. My apologies for these errors. Please do let me know of any significant inaccuracies that you find in the magazine; it is, after all, a matter of record which is on the internet and used for research decades or even centuries in the future.
As usual, Barry Freeman has written a very full account of 2018 in Eardisland. I won’t add to this other than to say that without so many people who willingly give of their time for free, many, if not all, of the activities Barry mentions would not take place, to the detriment of all.
I’m pleased to see The Cross Inn re-opened after such a long period of decline and I have written about this on page 9. Good luck to Chris and Sophie.
Finally, I wish you all a very happy 2019.
