This is the 49th edition of Connected and one constant during the past four years has been the contributions of Tony Service. Never late, always relevant and interesting, Tony has written texts for every edition. I had no idea that he has provided articles for 17 years. Staying fresh and relevant over such a time span is difficult and that Tony has achieved this is impressive. Tony, I will miss your email pinging into my inbox at the start of each month! I hope and pray that you continue to have much joy and hope in your life.
Revd. Rob writes the Dear Friends article this month - I can almost feel sand between my toes! There is also an update on the excellent Afternoon Teas that were supplied by Evie and Molly Watson; my waistline bears witness to their scrumptiousness!
We also remember Linda Reed who, with husband Hugh moved to Devon in 2014 and has sadly died. Glenn Guilliatt and Mrs Clarke seek to get one over on the taxman whilst also emptying your pockets of any folding loose change; remember it’s all in a very good cause!
The rest of the magazine is my fault as usual.
