Photo of Editor

Hi my name is Gil Oliphant and I have taken over as Caretaker Editor from Rachelle, best wishes to her for the future. I plan to keep this edition thriving until a local editor can be found to take over.

Since September I have been getting to know about the area which has been fun. I have been working for a number of years as a stand in editor on a variety of Family Grapevine editions and it is always a challenge. There is one thing that I passionately believe in and that is bringing together local businesses and readers through the Family Grapevine. In the March issue the area will be expanding to include the Basingstoke area ( see the map opposite) It always seems strange when doing a winter issue as you spend time searching for events such as Pantos and Santa’s Grottos when there is over 3 months to go, anyway I do hope you find the Events section useful, there is a little bit of everything there! As you can see I am not a young mum like some of the Family Grapevine editors. I am in fact a Grandad and you can see me with my two Grandsons, Leo who is just 9 and his brother Toby aged 7. They are looking forward to seeing me as an ugly sister in our local panto Cinderella in the New Year. I hope you enjoy this issue and have a pleasant Christmas and New Year.

How it works: the flexible CLAW covers the thumb, index and middle fingers and has a hole in the centre for a pen, pencil or crayon to fit. This way the fingers are gently coaxed into the right position every time the child writes.

As any parent will tell you, learning to write correctly is a challenge for most young children. That’s why we’re thrilled to introduce the Writing CLAW, a genuinely innovative, never-seen-before gripper which is guaranteed to give a true tripod grip consistently.
