Loddon Valley Link


Welcome to the September 2018 Edition of the Loddon Valley Link.

Looks like the long hot summer is over as I watch the rain pouring from the  skies.. Good for the gardens though. Harvest time means Harvest Festivals in the local churches. St Leonards is asking for donations to Basingstoke food bank.

Thanks again to Marianne for last months magazine. An excellent production you’ll all agree. Good luck in her continuing studies. It highlights we need a fresh injection of talent and enthusiasm on the Link as we address the developing landscape around us, so if you fancy getting involved in the production or editorship please drop us  a line. sep18 contents

In September we’ve got Sherfield Show on Sunday the 2nd. Hopefully you’ve got all the preparations done for your entry. Deadline for entries is 12 noon Saturday 1st September. See p33. We’ll also announce the winner of the  Loddon Valley Link photo competition there.

Music seems to be in the air as we have a few music events highlighted.  See p12 & p32.

Sherfield Park events are on p32. We featured lots of photos from Sherfest last month and unfortunately Carl Lesh who was responsible for most of them didn’t get credited. Thanks Carl.

It’s the Annual Sherfield Beer festival on 15th p38

The Sherfield Village Green volunteers have been busy, see p13 & p46

If you would like to play rugby locally see p41, or ladies football on p52. The season starts for Loddon Sports Junior FC too and they need some help. See p13.

We’ll be announcing all the grant awards we’ve made this year.
