Eardisland Parish Magazine January 2018

EDITORIAL

Welcome to the first edition of 2018. Barry Freeman has contributed his usual, very thorough, summary of the parish events for 2017, so I won’t make any further comment, except to express our collective condolences to the friends and families of those who died in that year.

You may know that over the Christmas period, the newly renovated Ruscote, the thatched property opposite Green Elms, caught fire. The fire was reported promptly, and the emergency serves attended very quickly, limiting the main fire to the ground floor, but with extensive smoke damage to the first floor – the relatively new thatch was unharmed. Luckily, the owners, Ronnie and Susan, were away at the time. I say ‘luckily’ because if they had been sleeping they may no longer be with us. I’m told that the repair work will take some six months. I’m sure we will rally round to help in whatever ways we can.

For only the second time as Editor, I shall be unavailable to put the magazine together in March. However, the ever-reliable Ben Woodcock has agreed to undertake this onerous task. Please send any copy that you have to: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., 01544 388976 well before the copy date, Friday 2nd March. I shall be back in the Editor’s chair for the following edition in May.

Finally, you should find the revised and updated ‘Who’s Who and Organisations’ with this magazine – if you don’t, please contact me immediately. Please keep this safe, a surprising amount of work is involved in its compilation and updating as a useful reference guide. I thank Patricia Gill for all her time spent on its completion.
