Time marches on and with it comes the first month of Spring.
Dark clouds are looming over Eastern Europe as I write this, but this month we include not one, but two, stories from the sunnier climes of the Iberian Peninsula. Tom Thompson is continuing his mammoth walk to northern Portugal, but we also have new contributors, Janet & Peter Bridgham, writing about their travels to Spain. See Pages 20 and 21 respectively.
Over our local border in Wendling, Sheena Ward is getting the popular Country Dancing Club going again on Monday evenings. All you need is £1.50 and to know your left from your… other one. See Page 23 for details.
Also back this month, after a short absence due to Covid restrictions, is the Dirty Donkey Do. It’s on Friday March 18th, which is also Red Nose Day. (Are the red noses caused by over-celebrating St Patrick’s Day the night before?) It’s free for anyone to pop in and meet, or make, friends & neighbours – just bring your own refreshments. The aroma of cheese on toast however will be wafting from the kitchen to tempt anyone feeling a little peckish during the evening! Page 14 for more details.
Liz Taylor talks of other notable dates during this month on Page 12 and has also included some topical recipes for the Cookery Corner on Page 26.
The next Community Litter Pick is taking place on Saturday 5th March and it’s not too late to volunteer your services. Courtesy of the Parish Council, all volunteers are rewarded with a bacon butty or slice of cake at the Coffee Morning afterwards. See Page 8 for more details.
