Happy New Year to all our Followers

I know it’s a few dates late but may I wish all you followers a Happy New Year and I hope Christmas turned out to be all you wanted.

There’s a couple of bits of Village news from over the Christmas period. The ‘Carols around the Tree’ raised £367 which was donated to the Day Centre. The Day Centre funding has been cut drastically over the past few years and every contribution is willingly accepted with heart felt thanks. Thank you for helping to raise this fantastic amount.

New Year’s Eve saw the leaving of Rev Kate Stacey who is moving to pastures new in Stroud. She will have a bigger ‘flock’ to manage but more ‘shepherds’ to help her. We wish her all the best.

Now, here’s a New Year’s Resolution I would like every one of you to help me with please. At the last count we have 129 followers. I would like to double this and the way we can do this is for each of you to find at least one new follower. It’s quite easy if you can’t remember, just get a friend to log into http://www.miltonunderwychwood.org and scroll down the home page till you come to the panel on the right hand side headed ‘Follow this Site’, add an email address and click the box! That’s it, job done!

I hope to keep you all informed of events and happenings, good and not so good, in and around Milton. There are several organisation that have their own websites and these are listed but there are others who don’t and I hope this website will be their opening into the village.

Similarly if there are things you would like to hear about that aren’t mentioned, please let me know and I’ll see what I can do.

Once again a Happy New Year from your Editor and best wishes for 2018.
