News Magazine 33, Winter 2008 - Editor's Corner
Can you believe it, another year has flown by as we present our "Bumper" Winter issue of the MACLA Magazine. Once again, to be able to include all the many articles from organisation in the area, it has been necessary to produce a 60 page magazine. Another amazing fact is that the magazine has now been running for over 8 years, when our early issues contained only 20 pages. This would suggest it has become an integral part of the local community and I thank everyone for their continued contributions. My article is however tinged with some sadness as we say farewell and a huge thank you to one of original "delivers" - Jane Mitchell from Scopwick, who is "retiring" - Jane has been absolutely brilliant for us and now we ask if there is anyone who feels they could take her place or need a little exercise and would be willing to deliver in the Scopwick area. We also say a sincere thank you to Cathy and Geoff Brown who have been responsible for Distribution since Autumn 2004. Cathy is still going to help with this task which has now been handed over to Maggie Kristen. We are still seeking people to deliver the magazine so if, like I have said, you need the exercise, perhaps you can help out just four times a year.
In the meantime may we wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year
