Even with this cold snap we’ve had, it’s so nice to see the daffodil’s waving their cheery heads at us.
Village folk were sorry to hear that Margaret Mitcheson had died mid February age 84yrs, after an illness. She was involved in local activities, especially St Giles, from when her and her sister Anne came to live in the village over 20 years ago, she also loved her garden.
Jason Milburn had a trip to Wembley in February to see Newcastle United play, unfortunately not successfully, but he enjoyed being there.
A good evening was had in early March when the Village Hall held their annual quiz evening. 1st ‘And the winners are’ which was Sally Dannys and her friends from Gunnerton. 2nd ‘Tilly’s Table’ Andrew Tilly and family, and 3rd ‘Team Thomas’ Liz Coulson and family. Some obscure questions from question master Patty, had folk thinking hard.
It won’t be long before we see lambs running about in the fields, telling us that Spring is here.
Regards Mary.
