At last, the joys of an approaching spring season lie before us after a gusty March. It was interesting to note that the tree that fell across Broadmoor Road on 10 March might have been weakened by the prolific amount of ivy that was strangling it. Your editor has lost trees due to ivy growth. It is cunning.
My dear Friends
Last year our church building had its quinquennial – a posh word for ‘once every five years’ – inspection which all parish churches are required to undertake. The inspecting architect didn’t discover anything drastically serious, and all the things described in his report as urgent are minor, but it’ll probably all come to a fair bit of cash. So please don’t think we won’t be grateful for your continuing financial support – watch out for that double negative so that you don’t mistake my meaning!
We all know the basic problem: left to themselves, things gradually deteriorate, don’t they?

Well many people attended Micks funeral followed by the wake in the Neville Hall. Apparently some 300 people attended, probably one of the largest turnouts in the Parish Church. A good friend that will be missed by many. RIP.
Now a quick mention on Brexit. I’m in France at the moment so I see on line that there will be a postponent but for how long is to be decided by our friends in Europe; the day after copy for the mag closes. Watch this space next month.
