Letter from the Editor
One of the things that has struck me since moving to this village, now just over 2 years ago, is the sense of community, and people looking out for each other. This is something I haven’t really experienced previously, where it was not unusual to barely know anyone other than your next-door neighbour. Also, when driving into the village for the first time, I was surprised that such a small village had such a good sized and well-kept community hall. I’m sure this is something we’d all like to continue, but to do so, it needs people who are willing to help out, and because the community means different things to different people, we need people of all ages involved in running and organising these things. With that in mind, two organisations are looking for people to help, the local school, and the Community Centre. Please volunteer if you have spare time – as well as helping to keep these running, it’s also a good way to meet other people in the village.

Townley School – Townley School are looking for two new governors: one parent governors and a community governor. If you have some spare time, a genuine interest in our school and would like to support our children and those in our community then we’d love to hear from you! No previous governance experience or special skills are necessary as a full induction and training, where needed, will be offered to the right applicants, so if you feel you can make a positive difference, or would like more information, please get in touch by phone on 01354 638229 or
by email: Maria-Anne Higgins Sue Rudge (Chair)

Christchurch Community Centre -Following the very sad loss of Peter Owen, Christchurch Community Centre Committee needs a Treasurer (I am assured that this is not an onerous task) along with volunteers and help with running the Centre and its events. If you feel you can help please contact Geoff Harper, Chair, Christchurch Community Centre Committee for further information (Tel: 01354 638681 or email
