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 you a Happy Valentines Day! It is also our 8th Birthday so a big thank you to our advertisers, distributors and readers who have supported us over the years. Remember Valentines Day is 14th February - if you are not the romantic type, how about having a new garden, conservatory or some double glazing to show how much you love your partner? Remember, you can see an up to date copy of the local Oracle on line. www.thelocaloracle.co.uk Anna & Jane
