Twenty five Years Ago

Issue no. 74 opened by announcing the newly elected members of the Parish Council .  Two of them still live in the village, and Tom Heritage still works for us as a Councillor.  Could this have anything to do with the fact that he was the only one of the new Councillors who thanked the voters?

The Harvest Supper had finally taken place, postponed from the previous August.  A bit like Microsoft release dates, really.

The results of the sponsored bike ride were announced, as were the dates for the Flower Festival Weekend (6th to 9th July, in the Church).  Ann Hale begged for help, especially for more stewards for the Church.  Children in the village were invited to join in by producing a flower-decorated plate for display.

The Youth Club announced a mixed bag of results, while Brian Emmerson's Folk Evening in the Village Hall had been a great success, raising 93 for the Hall, Church and Playgroup.  Mary Badger's coffee morning, also for the Playgroup had raised over 40 and a Woodpecker tray, whatever that was.

The Shenlow Singers had entertained the WI at their May meeting, and George and Gwyn Adams earnestly requested payment of Oxhill News subscriptions.  40 pence it was then, so we seem to have suffered a 500% increase since then.  How times change.

Finally the editors tested their readership by announcing Church Service times for June under the heading "Church Services for May" (now who has done something very similar very recently) and begged everyone to vote in the forthcoming European elections.  Nothing changes much, does it?
