    WelcomeA warm welcome to the winter 2007edition of Nettleham News. I sincerelyhope you enjoy reading it and find all thenews, views and information of interest.

    I really cant believe that another year haspassed! It seems like only yesterday thatI was organising the magazine for anotheryear last January.

    Next year, 2008, will mark the silveranniversary (or should that be Jubilee?) ofNettleham News and I hope to have a realsurprise for you all to mark twenty-fiveyears of the magazine.

    I am very proud to have been associatedwith the publication over all those yearsfrom the very first edition in 1983, first asgraphic designer and subsequently as bothEditor and designer. I enjoy it immenselyand hope that you all enjoy it too. Fromwhat people say to me and write in theirletters, I think perhaps you do!

    And with the coming of the internetNettleham News is now read worldwide,something that we never dreamed possibleback then in 1983!

    Christmas crosswordThere is a special Christmas Crosswordfor you on page 27, so when all theexcitement of Christmas has died downand you have some time to yourself oncemore, settle down with a cup of tea andhave a go for the 10 prize.

    Deadline datesPlease note the changed deadlinedates for receiving contributions toNettleham News at the head of thispage. Instead of the 10th day of themonth preceding the quarterly editions,it is now the 1st day - so do make sureyou get your articles, etc, to me in goodtime for inclusion in the magazine.

    New woodland for NettlehamAs a result of the efforts of NettlehamWoodland Trust over the past months,permission has finally been obtained toplant over 400 trees on an area of thePolice Field adjacent to Green Lane andThe Scotches footpath.

    Scheduled to take place on Saturday23 February 2008, between 10.00am and2.00pm, everyone in the village is welcometo come along and help with the plantingof the trees. The saplings are only quitesmall - even children can plant them, sobring a spade with you and lets create thisnew piece of woodland for Nettleham -the very first of what is hoped may bemany more areas of native woodlandaround the village over the coming years.

    Do come along on the day to lend yoursupport to this community effort.

    See Noticeboard on page 3 andcentre pages 34/35 for

    more information.

    And Finally...May I wish you all a very happy Christmasand a peaceful and prosperous New Year.

    This magazineI am always mindful of the two mainconstituents of Nettleham News.

    Firstly, the advertisements, which enablelocal businesses to make readers aware oftheir products and services. These are thelife-blood of the magazine, as the revenuefrom them makes publication possible.Without them there would simply be nomagazine and I would like to take thisopportunity to sincerely thank them all fortheir continued support over the past yearand urge readers to use these localbusinesses whenever possible. And doremember to mention Nettleham Newswhen responding to the advertisements -in this way advertisers know that theirinclusion in the magazine is worthwhile.

    Secondly, it is you, the readers whocontribute so much in terms of contentand I would like to thank all those whohave sent in material for publication overthe past year and hope that many morereaders will be inspired to send their owncontributions next year. If there issomething you would particularly like tosee featured in the pages of the magazine,do let me know.

    To maintain a lively and interestingmagazine there is no restriction on whatyou can send - news stories, anecdotes,informative articles, events, club news,appeals, readers letters, poems, jokes,photographs, in fact just about anything!

    It always makes an article more interestingto the reader if a photograph accompaniesthe text and in these days of digitalcameras its so easy to take pictures -simply send them as jpg attachments toyour emails - it couldnt be simpler.

    Dont be shy - make it your New Yearsresolution to have something printed inthe magazine in 2008.

    Nettleham News Email AddressPlease remember the email address towhich all your contributions for themagazine should continue to be sent:

    [email protected]

    By far the easiest, quickest and surest wayto send text for publication is to composethe article, poem, etc, in your favouriteword processing software, then simplycopy and paste the entire text into theemail for sending to me (if you would liketo put text starts and text ends toclearly define the wording to be published- even better) then I can copy and paste itagain straight into the magazine.
