Another day, another Newsletter. I’m delighted to present a second extra issue for 2020. All civic societies are experiencing the same problems in fulfilling their functions, serving their members and keeping as active as possible during these strange times.

While the Society keeps as active as possible ‘behind-the-scenes’, its visible face tends to be the social media sites (Facebook and Instagram), its website and Image Archive and the Newsletter. Such has been the rather gratifying praise for the recent issues that it was decided to produce this August issue to cover some of the developments and challenges in our town and provide more space to some excellent articles. Talking of which, as ever, I am most grateful to contributors past, present and future.

I hope that you enjoy this veritable smorgassbord of varied articles and images.

With best wishes to all our members and readers,

Robin Gaylard
