That’s it for another week then, a week in which winter reminded us of its eventual and inevitable arrival with a crisp chill in the evening air which belied the sunny, almost summery feel of the daytime. This issue would not have been possible without the help of a number of people to whom we are, as always, grateful. A round of applause, then, please, to Tony Penrose, Colin Thubron, Mike Edwards, Amanda Grant, Phillipa Grant, Shirley Edwards, Kathryn Turner, Obafemi Martins, Tom Homewood, Gavin Burke, Terry Owen, Arabella Hayes, Mike Edwards, Jenny from Chailey, Ian Harris and Mike Lance.
