Sad News - Rowland White
First News Item of 2023! Or Not...
The keen-eyed amongst us will have noticed that this is the new “News & Events” page, and so far there’s nothing on it. The even-more-keen-eyed amongst us will also have noticed that the old page has been retitled as “News & Events Archive 01“, and also that it seems incomplete. Well done for spotting that.
For some time my erstwhile predecessor in the publicity role has been trying to update the old page but there seems to be some kind of glitch that stops the update from sticking: my view is that the page is too long. Hence her updates have been lost. In the new season, commencing Tuesday 5th September 2023, this page will be updated with new and exciting stuff. Well, new and possibly exciting stuff.
Between now and then I will try to post some news of interesting events that might provide photo opportunities. It’s possible, but less likely, that some of the lost news from the previous season will appear here over the summer, if we can find it.
Have a safe and happy summer!
