Trees seem to feature a lot in this issue – whether that’s celebrating their beauty and environmental contribution (see Tree of the Month), or concern among some residents about losing them (see Bridge Over Troubled Water). We celebrate three different awards for village folk: for Humphrey Perkins School, the Panto Group and Paul Browning.

I hope that you will also visit Barrow Voice Online. You will find additional material there. Look out for the articles which are also featured online with more photos and more information.

This issue’s front cover makes me feel nostalgic for when we could enjoy the sunshine with friends but also helps me to look forward to the time when we can do that again! Take of yourself and I do hope you enjoy reading this Spring Issue of Barrow Voice both in paper and online.
