Election Ahead!

Just think - before the summer issue of Barrow Voice drops onto your doormat, we’ll have a new government. To reflect this important event we have a feature encouraging you to celebrate the fact you have the right to vote. It’s often taken for granted, but read the article and remind yourself of how long it took to achieve.

Also with spring comes buds. If you are fond of taking photographs please send us your pictures of buds and we’ll make a montage of them for next spring’s front cover. As always, spring renews enthusiasm for gardening or working on allotments - perhaps even increased cleaning in the home.  is issue has them all covered plus cyber-sport and jokes!
