Loddon Valley Link



Welcome to the July 2018 Edition of the Loddon Valley Link. Following the hottest May on record summer is definitely here. Judging from the pictures from the Sherfield Fete most of the village agreed. See more in the centre pages.

We’re still looking for new blood for various roles editing the link and being part of the production process so if you’d like to get involved please drop a line to the editor below. Summer is certainly not looking like lazy days with lots of events going on. You’ve just missed Hartley Wespall open gardens but I’m sure we’ll have some lovely pictures next month.

Thinking of gardens. Now’s the time to think about your entries for Sherfield and District Show (p 29) Sherfest is coming up (p38) and the Vyne is showing us some culture (p23).contents jul18

The Sherfield Village Green Volunteers have been very busy (p32) and there’s even a bit of bee keeping in schools on p39. Keep the entries for the cover photo competition coming in. We are running the competition again this year; and as usual, there will be prizes for the winners to be presented at the Sherfield Show. The deadline is 15 August, so you have plenty of time over the summer to get snapping and send your photos in!

This month's cover photo was taken by Dave Potts at Sherfield Village Fete.

There are a number of small grants available to local organisations both from the Fete proceeds(p11) and the Loddon Valley Link (p18). As ever, send pictures, or any other comments or questions, to
