The Editor's Letter


It is cold and it is most definitely now Autumn! The logs are ordered for the fire and the curtains are being drawn far too close to 5pm for my liking!

Thank you very much to Neil Moores for our very appropriate front cover for this month. Kirton will once again turn out to remember the fallen on Sunday 12th November. Kirton Parish Council together with the Royal British Legion (Kirton branch) have organised the Remembrance Day Parade, combined with a church service at St Peter & St Paul’s which I’m sure will be very well supported as in previous years. It is something we do so well as a village.

‘In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.’

John McCrae’s ‘In Flanders Fields’

This is most definitely our busiest time for forthcoming events! There are a vast amount to choose from, most of which you will find on pages 29 and 30! Lots of quizzes, craft fairs and musical entertainment to keep you all out of mischief!
