Issue 55, June 2017.
W elcome to the new-look Chalgrave News. Thanks go out to editorial team member Tracy Malster for the redesign. We hope you like it.
A huge thank you to the old team for their sterling work over the last 6 years. We are very grateful for all the help and information given to make the changeover a s easy as possible for us and for the transfer of funds .
Hopefully, by now, you will have received our introductory flyers. We thought it might be a good idea to introduce the new team properly as there are quite a few of us and no editor as such, although Lyndie and Tracy together have taken on the major task of collating the stories and pictures. In this issue, you will find many familiar articles and some new features too, like ‘The Chalgrave Rambler.’ Curiously, no one actually knows who ‘The Rambler’ is, but he loves to get out in the parish and take photos from unusual angles and there’s a reward of £5 for the first person to identify where the photo was taken.
We’re bringing back the Best Kept Front Garden competition and introducing a brand new, Chalgrave News sponsored event ‘Chalgrave Open Gardens’ on Saturday 22 July. We’ve already got 8 gardens lined up for you to have a look
around. The start and end point will be the Vicarage and there are rumours of cream teas on the lawn so save the date and let us know if you want to enter your garden too.
We do hope you enjoy this issue of the Chalgrave News. It’s your magazine and we want it to really work for you, tell us if we’re getting it right or if you have id eas for changes or improvements. Remember, if you have an event or a story you want people to know about, send in the details with a picture or two and we’ll try and make sure it goes in to the next edition.
Now, settle down with a nice cup of tea and a biscuit and take a trip around the parish from the comfort of your armchair.
