News Magazine 36 - Autumn 2009
Welcome to the Autumn edition of your community magazine which you will see has had to have a further four pages added because of the continuing demand by organizations etc, wishing to contribute. I am sure there will be something of interest for everyone.
In this issue, by request, you will see I have now added, in the opening page, an index of most events reported on in the magazine which are taking place in the area during this autumn period. Hopefully this will enable readers to be able to take a quick glance at when events are taking place. If anyone feels they would like to see any other changes or additions, please do not hesitate to contact me, in the end, it is "your" community magazine.
Before closing I wish to make a sincere apology to residents in the Scopwick area. It came to our attention just a couple of weeks ago that the Summer Issue had only just been delivered. This was as a result of our distributor finding out that the volunteer who usually delivers in your area had taken a fall and had been hospitalized soon after receiving the magazines. Unfortunately Maggie,our distributor, did not become aware of this until August and immediately went and collected them from the volunteer and distributed them with her daughter. This was a most unfortunate situation which we hope will not happen again as it is more than disappointing, for me as producer of the magazine, for our distribution team, and I guess, even equally disappointing for our recipients, as many events included in the magazine have passed by. Sorry once again.
