Loddon Valley Link

Loddon Valley Link

simon Editorial

Welcome to the July edition of the Loddon Valley Link. Unlike last month I’m sat sweltering in some of the hottest UK temperatures on record. As we pass the summer solstice can it get any hotter?

This month is fete month with Sherfield’s just happened and Bramley School (p45) and Sherfest about to. Pictures of Sherfield’s festoon the centre and appear on the cover, thanks to Tom Hacking for that. We continue a look at the work done by Rev. AG Barker, this time a slice of life from his marriage in1852. Coincidentally the same year the 1st Duke of Wellington died. (p24)

A fascinating article on a local family making a massive life change appears on (p19)jul17 contents

Hartley Wespall have just held their regatta so you can see what you missed (p35)

I heard last month’s Newnham open gardens event was excellent so if you missed out or want more then pop down to Breach Lane (p17)

Chineham local library has lots going on over the summer (p41) Hampshire Wildlife trust is offering a number of wildlife related courses (p52)

The Loddon Valley Link likes to encourage local clubs and organisations of almost any type by offering small grants. Now's the time to get your request in as applications close on the 31st July. (p48)

In a small effort at keeping up with social media we’ve now got a Facebook page where you’ll be able to access electronic copies of the magazine. A reminder also of the cover photo competition for which prizes will be awarded at the September Sherfield and District Show (p37). As ever, do keep your contributions coming in.
