And a heartwarming welcome to our loveable February issue with the romance of St Valentine in mind.
And to warm the cockles of our hearts, this month we bring a long absent Step Back In Time feature on pages 14 and 15. Taking us back to our Yesteryears in Hagley we have a double page spread of beautiful memories - very many thanks to Bev for providing us with these wonderful photographs. We hope you all enjoy them.
We’re pleased to bring you lots of updated information from the Library including details lots of free activities for our local children. Head towards the back of this issue to page 42 to find out more and also details of the Healthy Walking and Evening Reading Groups on offer.
Please do check out the timetables for the Community Centre and the Scouts Hut on pages 4 and 6 to find out times and days of various different classes being held. And remember - both of these venues are available for public use, so if you’re looking for somewhere to hold a function then its definitely worth considering them.
Our lovely Village News is still on the lookout for more distributors so that we can keep getting it out to you each month. And Hagley Community Association is needing committee members. Please see their adverts on pages 4 and 5 if you think you may be interested in taking on either or both of these roles. As always the Village Helpline are in much need of volunteers too. If you can help to keep this valuable community service running - please call 01562 886696.
And on a final note for February - we hope it’s full of love and romance for you all. Get out and about and enjoy our wonderful surroundings whether it’s a bike ride at dusk, a walk through the country lanes lit only by the moon or simply snuggling up with a flask of hot coffee to watch the sunrise over the local hills. Take care, catch up again next month.
