Heron Montly Banner may


Editorial – May 2021

Well what a month we’ve had! If someone can explain what on earth the weather is doing at the moment, I would be grateful … You don’t know what to wear for a start! Baking hot one minute – Baltic the next!!

Hands up those that were “fooled” by last month’s front cover?? We did have a few people questioning it – wondering if we had missed off a few pages!! We thought that the phone model (which doesn’t have a camera at all) and the dodgy page number might have given it away! Sorry!!

Following the sad news about the passing of HRH The Prince Philip, this month we’ve got some lovely stories from people who have been involved in the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award scheme at some stage in their lives.

There is a lovely piece this month about the history of May Day and also Part 1 of a really interesting story about Fen View … before it was Fen View!

One of our villagers, Sandra Kay, is having a Plant Sale at the Dun Cow on Saturday 8th May with all proceeds going to MIND. A charity which is desperately close to her heart. We hope you are able to go along and support this wonderful charity that continues to do great work.

Talking about the Dun Cow – it is so great to finally see it open again (albeit serving drinks outside). Check out their advert for some developments on the return of Breakfasts! I know there are a lot of people out there that have really missed those!

With the continuing vaccine figures escalating, here’s hoping that we are now on the home straight and can look forward to seeing the start of Christchurch waking up from it’s unscheduled sleep and getting back to a new normal, ready for the Summer.
