Hainford & Stratton Strawless Parish News

Hainford and Stratton Strawless Parish News: there will be no magazine in May 2020.

Hello All,

I hope you, your loved ones, friends and neighbours are keeping well during this unsettling and uncertain time. Life has changed significantly for us all as we try and cope with the most challenging of situations that the COVID-19 pandemic presents for the world. Our grateful thanks go to all key workers for their efforts on our behalf.

Here, we are seeing community spirit at its very best - huge thanks to all who are helping and supporting others. We must try and stay strong - we will get through this together and in time, our country and countries around the world will overcome this horrendous situation and life will return with some normality.

Locally, our priority must be to try and ensure the safety and well being of our community; so as Editor, I have taken the decision that we will not produce a Hainford and Stratton Strawless Parish News for May 2020 and that decision will be reviewed for June 2020. Basil Cooper (Treasurer) is in agreement with this decision. This is in an effort to take pressure off and protect our delivery team who go out and about in the community delivering magazines to residents. We thank them for their efforts.

The business advertisers will of course have an extended period for their advert to cover any month that is not produced. Basil Cooper will let them know, as their advert comes up for renewal.

Of course, if you have items for the magazine, please send to me whenever is convenient and I will keep them for upcoming publications. So at this time, our next deadline will be May 17th 2020 for June 2020 magazine but I will be in touch again if the June magazine is to be cancelled.

One provisional re-booking of an event I have received, is for Kevin's Slide Show in Hainford Village Hall. This is now scheduled for Friday October 23rd, 2020.

With thanks and good wishes,
Carolyn Atherton, Editor.
