News the local

Dear Readers Happy New Year! We hope many readers and advertisers had a great Christmas but we know that many of you had a challenging one with either flooding or no power. Our cover photo shows Anna’s parents being towed along in Yalding after being stranded in her brother’s flooded house. We can only hope that the rain expected as we finalise this edition ready for print doesn’t further delay the clean up operation for so many. On a positive note, the whole event has brought out the community spirit in so many which seems to help in lifting everyone. Well done to all those Christmas helpers out there. Let’s hope the weather improves and we can change the subject in February! Anna & Jane
