News the local

Dear Readers

Well Summer is here at last so no complaints about the weather! It arrived just in time for Music On The Hill which was a huge success. We must thank all of you who bought tickets using the local Oracle code that confirmed how well the advertising campaign worked for the organisers of the event. We both attended the various concerts over the weekend and were impressed by the turn out from the public, the organisation and of course the perfomances from the artists. We will update you on the amount of funds raised on the day but early reports suggest it smashed all previous records.

This edition has been so busy with new and exciting advertisers this month that we have had to take out our Useful Numbers and Event Listing pages. Please see our website calendar for event information and we hope to have the pages back next month for you. Anna & Jane
