Loddon Valley Link


Welcome to the August 2018 Edition of the Loddon Valley Link. marianne
The task of completing this year’s summer edition has kindly been handed to me by all the team behind the magazine, and with the help of Simon to guide me, it has been a great learning curve. 

After reading the magazine for many years, I jumped at the student editorship opportunity— the timing of which fits perfectly into my summer break between finishing college and venturing out to university in the coming September. 

Altogether it has been a busy but interesting month as I admittedly hadn't realised how much time and attention actually goes into producing the Aug18 Contentsmagazine on a monthly basis. That being said, seeing everyone's work being sewn together in the final stages of making the magazine provides me with a strong sense of satisfaction and pride.
Not only was I taught how to use the software to aid me in creating the August edition of the magazine, I was also given free reign to produce two articles. Sherfest was my first choice and my current employment at the White Hart in Sherfield, made the choice for my second article fairly simple.
Photos of Sherfest, a mixture of both Stephen Levin’s and my own can be seen in the centre pages (p. 30 & p. 31). This month's cover photo was also taken at Sherfest by myself, capturing just some of the fun to be had. However, future activities at the Village Hall in Stratfield Saye (p. 10) and at The Vyne (p. 38), provide plenty of light entertainment throughout this summer and into early September.
Finally I can’t thank the committee enough for all the support they’ve given me and recommend this experience to anyone looking to understand the ins and outs of editing, publishing and printing a local magazine. It has been an incredible and educational month to say the least!
