Festival Weekend 2001 - Ken
Holiday Time Is Here Again - Rev David Mason
For many this time of the year also marks great changes in life. Most of those at school will be moving to new classes, many will be changing schools, and some will be leaving school to go on to higher education or to seek employment with a view to earning a living. No doubt those affected will be feeling the mixture of excitement and apprehension that is the inevitable accompaniment of changes in life patterns. While many of us may describe school days as the happiest days of our lives I am sure that when we really think about it few of us would want to return to them. Life has moved on, and we realise that there is no going back. Memories are valuable and enjoyable, but no use is served by trying to live in the past and deny the present. God has given each one of us the gift of life to use, and I believe, to enjoy. We can only go forward in our lives, time spent cannot be recovered. To those facing changes in their lives I send good wishes and prayers that you will have the strength and wisdom to meet the challenges on the way, and experience the reality of the love of God in your lives.

Newcomer to the village, Sue Rudd, has joined us as a co-ordinator, and is warmly welcomed. There is room for more co-ordinators, and the duties are not onerous. Please contact Paul Keeble, should you wish to offer your help - after all, many hands make tight work! We desperately need help with photocopying -can anyone offer to run off 85-odd copies very occasionally, without charge? Paul would love to hear from you if you can.
Also, the weekly crime "Trend Sheet" is available to all through e-mail. — keep up to date with what villains are up to in the area and for advice on crime prevention, contact firstname.lastname@example.org, and ask to be included in the distribution list. The more people who see this document, the better. Several arrests have been made following help from readers. And don’t forget - this village may be the next on a burglar’s list - so keep your eyes open!
We will print anything of interest to the community not just reports of past village activities or reminders of forthcoming ones. Feedback on any of the items published would be most welcome – whether for printing or not.
