Loddon Valley Link

howard Editorial

Welcome to this the March edition of the Loddon Valley Link. Lately we seem to have had it all, rain, sleet, snow and ice. To be fair we have also had some beautifully crisp sunny mornings too, but winter still seems reluctant to yield. However, encouraging signs are beginning to show everywhere that Spring is just around the corner. Venitia Rowlands’ beautiful seasonal picture of snowdrops shows off this month’s front cover to good effect and already daffodils are establishing themselves in gardens and the fields around. Daylight hours too are increasing and In just a few weeks the clocks will go forward and Spring will truly be upon us.
Lent, too, will also be upon us and you can find details of all the special church services in this month’s edition. Stephen Ball has shared his own thoughts about what Lent might lead us to consider about ourselves, and this you can find on pg 7.mar18 contents
Messy Easter and Messy Church also feature and you can check this out on pg 13.
This month’s issue is full of interesting articles, the Reverent Barker is once again engaged in some serious moralising to his flock - with the aid of a magic lantern show and some choice hymns. The Sherfield Village Green Volunteers have been active again and judging by the photograph supplied by Pamela Darker, it looks as if some of the crew have just learnt that lunch has been cancelled.
On a more serious note, there is also a poignant timely reminder (on pg 48) of those who made the ultimate sacrifice during WW1.
Your seasonal photographs for our photographic competition are still coming in, thank you, but it is important to remember that in order to be considered for use on the front cover, they do need to be presented in PORTRAIT format.
Following on from last month’s announcement there has been some interest in the search for a new editor for the magazine. Therefore, if you are interested in joining the LVL team then please do get in touch via the editors’ email address below.
