As always, we some interesting reading throughout along with news from more of our local clubs and societies who are finding their way back to normal.
We’re pleased to have Hagley Theatre Group Youth Section back in action bringing with them a musical production of ‘The Keeper’. More information and details of how to obtain tickets for what we’re sure will be a delightful performance are on page 4.
Also joining us again are Hagley Probus Club. To find out what they have been up to and for contact details of Alan Hess, Hon Secretary please head over to page 5.
In the last edition we reported that the Hagley Helpline would not be running for the foreseeable future. Well things have changed! We are absoultely delighted to inform you that it has now re-opened. This is really good news as this has always been such a valuable service for our residents. As always they would welcome new volunteers, so if you can help please see page 6 for further details.
We have a full page report from the surgery on page 12 with information on flu jabs and also a lovely message from Dr Richards. He will be the leaving the village surgery and heading into well earned retirement. A lovely gent and wonderful GP - we wish him all the best and will miss him very much.
We have had word from Jonathan Plant of the Blakedown and Hagley branch of the Royal British Legion. They are hoping to have a return to some normality this year and are in the process of planning for the Poppy Apeal, Remembrance Service and Parade - we hope all goes well for them.
And on a final note - we hope you like this month’s rather eerie cover photograph (thankyou James) - imagine walking through that field at dusk on Halloween - if you dare!All the best folks - until next month. Take care
