News the local

Dear Readers We got it wrong!! Our January front cover showed a snow scene from 2011 but January 2012 proved to be mild in comparison. Unable to predict February’s weather, we decided to wish ourselves a Happy 8th Birthday! A big thank you to our advertisers, distributors and readers who has supported us over the years. Remember Valentines Day is 14th February - if you can’t afford a new kitchen then some chocolates or flowers are the next best thing! We’ve got a chocolate shop, two florists, hair, beauty and nails for treats and many more options if you use your imagination. Remember, you can see an up to date copy of the local Oracle on line. Anna & Jane

We will continue with our event listings page but if you have a big charity event in the local area, we want to hear from you.

have you got some local news about the area? have you got local photos for our front cover? are you a member of a local group that needs members? We want to hear from you...
