FOOTNOTES: A positive cornucopia of events this week. Thanks to the lady in the council who has revealed all, events, that is. Some of the dates are a little in advance, but I will put out reminders nearer the times. Jack and I have been admonished for relating our weekly adventures around Telscombe, but we enjoy them and I suspect so do you. It is a harmless activity I think. We shall be back next week and so will you I hope. Enjoy your weekend and the summer.
