June 2021 Editorial.
Al last June has arrived and so has the sunshine,the summer flowers and the cricket.
June also means the end of another Chronicle season, our 43rd. We never publish in July and August as historically our deliverers were, back in the day, schoolchildren and/or their parents. Those 1970s schoolchildren are now parents and some even possibly grandparents.They fled their nests and left their delivering responsibilities to another generation.
Time stops for nobody.
June is also a time to look back and thank many people:our loyal and new advertisers in our community newspaper; our contributors, both regular and some one off; those people who have brought us interesting facts and stories and the myriad deliverers who can now rest in the garden and soak up the sun.
Of course The Chronicle would never be possible without our printers, Alfred Willday and Son whom we have been with since we started back in 1978. It was so pleasing to see the fourth generation of the Willday family, Tom Willday, now managing director, on the BBC tv programme ‘Dragon’s Den’, with his new ‘Willsow’ product. You can read more about it in this month’s edition.
Well done Tom who. along with all those that volunteer, we think of as part of The Chronicle family.
Have a great summer , one and all,and we’ll see you in September, Boris permitting.
