News the local

Dear Readers We can’t quite believe how quickly 2012 has gone but we have some fantastic memories from the Queen’s Jubilee, the Olympics and Paralympics - the great was put back into Great Britain! We have some great new advertisers this month so do take a few moments to browse through and see if they can be of any help to you. If you have any news, events or adverts for the January 2013 edition, please note that our cut off dates are earlier than normal as we really don’t want to be working on Christmas Day! We wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Remember we are on Facebook - please continue to ‘like’ us (and we will ‘like’ you back) and you will receive updates on what we and our advertisers are doing. It’s always good to keep in touch. You can see an up to date copy of all editions of the local Oracle on-line. Anna & Jane
