The general response to our last edition where, for the first time, we had sixteen pages in full colour, was a resounding YES to the new look magazine. A big thank you goes to Mulberry Square who gave us the confidence to take this step and to BUSCA for supporting us in this new venture.

Most of our production costs are covered by our advertising revenue and so that we can continue to achieve this, we are looking for a volunteer to take on the collection and accounting side of things. If you think you would like to get involved, then please give Judith Rodgers a ring on 01509 412063 to find out more.

This summer edition goes to press following a weekend of hot sunshine, torrential rain and thunderstorms. After last year’s predictions of a barbeque summer, the weather forecasters have been understandably coy about this season’s fortunes. Hot dry weather may suit most of us but not so gardeners and fishermen. We take a look at the very popular sport of angling, both locally and in more exotic climes. And whether you’ve caught your fish or just brought it home from the supermarket, there are some mouth-watering recipes to try.

Do log on to our website where there are longer versions of some of our stories – the BRAG report on the Jelson development and the growing success of Shotokan Karate in the village are just two.
