Loddon Valley Link

jane4 Editorial

Welcome to the May issue of the Loddon Valley Link.
Our cover photograph (taken by Karen West) and feature concerns the presentation of the Certificate in Church Music to Andrew Doggart at a recent church service. This is a major achievement which involved several years of hard work. Full details on p. 30.
For the first time we are including a Puzzle Page - a cryptic crossword this month. Let us know what you think - whether this is a worthwhile addition, and in particular, whether it is too hard or too easy.
This month has seen the departure of Candice Wright, who has done sterling work running Sherfield Park Community Centre over the last few years. SPCC is now looking for a new manager - if you want to get more involved in the local community they would love to hear from you. See p. 41 for details. may18 contents
Meanwhile Sherfield-on-Loddon and Sherfield Park Parish Councils both have vacancies for councillors - another great way to get involved.
Other news from Sherfield-on-Loddon Parish Council includes early warning of an event taking place in November to commemorate the end of WWI. Other events of interest around the parishes are the Sherfield Fete on 9th June (p. 29) and the Hartley Wespall Open Gardens Day on 24th June (p. 23). Events at Sherfield Village Hall include their AGM and a Royal Wedding Party, while Sherfield Park Community Centre has an open air cinema evening.
In the Borough Councillor's piece Venetia Rowland updates us on recent and future developments within Basingstoke & Deane.
The local National Trust property, The Vyne, has been undergoing extensive work to replace the roof. On p. 31 there is an article on the project as well as some historical background.
Finally former Sherfield resident Abigail Burkett, who is now running a family centre in Botswana, has supplied an interesting account of their recent drive for blood donations as a result of the shortage of blood in Botswana (p. 33).
