Merry Christmas and Happy New year to all our writers, readers, contributors, and friends ……
It’s a brief message – I want to thank you all for writing, reading, commenting, and sharing our articles.
A special thank you to Forty Years in Chandler’s Ford – a Journal, based on his grandmother Joan Adelaide Goater’s fascinating life. The series has now reached Part 75 – and there are more stories to come – it’s simply wonderful.for his amazing weekly series on Sundays:
We enjoy reading these gripping stores, and appreciate the beauty of nature with many trips and walks mentioned in the stories. Thank you Rick!
Thank you Allison Symes for your weekly series on Fridays – you have connected us to a wider writing community in the country. Your in-depth reviews of local theatre shows (the Chameleons and MDG Players) in particular, and your stories are always so enjoyable to read.
It’s always the highlights of my days when we go out together to watch these local performances, and have discussions afterwards.
Thank you Chippy Minton for your funny, quirky (and occasional serious) stuff – love your sense of humour.
Chippy, you can even bake! I look forward to seeing your cake this evening.
Chippy has finally convinced me that running could be fun, with mud, rain, wind… Now we do Eastleigh parkrun on Saturdays. While Chippy has earned his many milestone t-shirts, I need to run for 40 times to earn my very first one.
Yesterday a reader (Karen) sent me an email, saying “…love this site … brought back so many happy memories for me. Great work, thank you.” Thank you Karen – this few words really mean a lot to us, who share, write, edit, comment…
Finally I would like to say a big THANK YOU to Neil Duddridge, of SO53, which specalises in web design, web hosting, SEO. Thank you Neil for hosting this site over the years and dealing with technical problems and emergencies.
Wishing all our writers and readers – peace, joy, and happiness.
