Editorial – October 2020

If you have visited our Web Site www.theheron.info you should have spotted all the beautiful pictures that villagers have sent in for our 2021 Calendar Christchurch Skies. Our judge, Rex Ockendon, is finding it difficult to choose the Gold, Silver and Bronze winners, and you can see why! The winners will be announced at the end of October, and their photos will be in the November Heron. Look forward to that! Our deadline for photos to go into the competition is OCTOBER 12th. Every entrant will have at least one of their photos on the calendar. The size of the calendar is the size of The Heron. Just turn your Heron sideways to landscape orientation, and you will see how it will work. It will have a hole punched, to hang it up with. As you open the magazine out in landscape mode, the top page will be full of photographs, and the lower page will have the monthly dates on, and there will be space to write in the date boxes. One very beautiful and useful Christmas present. It will fit in an A4 (C4) envelope so it will be easy to send through the post. You can buy them from November 1st. £6 for one, but a bargain multibuy offer of £15 for 3. This project is our “Covid-safe” fundraising event, and we need our readers’ support with this project. That means YOU! If you could see your way to supporting us with orders, then please do this during October. It will help us enormously to know how many we should print. Obviously, if we have leftovers, then later orders will be able to be fulfilled. Please get your orders and money (up front only) to our Treasurer, Elaine Reed-Hughes. Cheques made payable to Heron Publishing or BACS details available upon request. Her contact details are on the front cover.
Note to our Advertisers: We will be pleased to put your company details in the calendar, for a donation of £12 (or more). Please get in touch with our Ads manager about this. Contact details on the front cover of the magazine.
