What a relief that things are beginning to get back to normal again – it has been such a long strange year.

It is great to hear that children are back at school and are pleased and enthusiastic to see their friends and teachers again.

While most of us have been isolating at home it is good to see that our local and district councils have been very active during lockdown. We really look forward to visiting the newly extended and refurbished Hub and are so fortunate to have this facility in our village. It is also good to see people recognised for the voluntary work they do for the community.

The various Clubs and Sports Clubs have kept going both outdoors and by Zoom meetings on-line. We also have an article about walking for health, so, whatever your age there is no excuse for not getting out into the fresh air, especially now that Spring is here. We are lucky in that we have many pleasant places to walk in and around the village.

The coming months also have lots of interesting things planned, including at the Hub, Open Gardens and Open Studios. For other upcoming events see What’s On.
Our three churches will be fully open again, and we welcome a new minister at the United Reformed Church.

In the previous issue of the magazine No 105, the article ‘Melwood in Lockdown’ on page 22 may have implied that the article was written by Mike Pennington when in fact it was written by Jim Reid. Mike Pennington is responsible for the photograph that appears at the top of page 22. Our apologies for any misunderstanding that this may have caused.

We do hope that everyone enjoys the Summer and has a great time meeting friends and family again.
