A warm welcome to our new Editor!

I am delighted to announce that we have a new editor for our village newsletter. Lucy Cooper moved to Cheriton Bishop last year with her husband and two sons. She has settled into village life and can often be spotted around Church Lane walking her two adorable, little dogs! We are doubly blessed in finding Lucy because she is also a professional graphic designer and is full of brilliant ideas to inject new life into the newsletter. I am sure you will all wish Lucy a very warm welcome and give her as much encouragement as you gave me.

A plea from Persis!

“Do you have any unwanted children’s books or teenage reading material that you would you like to donate to the children’s section of the Book Sale?” This year we have received very few children’s books suitable for all ages and would be grateful for more donations. Please see page 11 of the November 2019 newsletter for details of where you can make your donations.

Draft Minutes

The newsletter provides a vital link between the parish council and the parishioners of the village. To ensure you are reading the latest minutes, I usually include the draft version. Please note that the final minutes have to be signed off at the consecutive parish council meeting and these can be viewed on the village noticeboard, by the war memorial.

New opening hours for Drakes Farm & Café

We are spoilt for choice when it comes to local dining out options and Drakes Farm have further extended that choice by lengthening their opening hours! You are warmly invited to pop in and sample their delicious fayre from Tuesday to Saturday 8.30am till 5pm and
Sunday 9.00am till 4pm. Closed Mondays. Please see their revised advert in the yellow pages for more details.

Worried about climate Change?

Later this month, there is an illustrated talk on the science of climate change and how to respond taking place at the Spalding Hall, please see page 2 of the November 2019 newsletter for details. November is a double edition.

A reminder to all our regular newsletter contributors that the next edition is for both December and January so please remember to include the notices for your January activities.
