We all survived the storm. It certainly did some damage and being without power caused a lot of hardship to many people. It’s amazing how neighbours support each other in times of crisis, a supreme example of this was the number of farmers who obliged their neighbours by milking their cows not once but on occasion three or four times. It is good to see that we haven’t forgotten what our parents and grandparents had to do many many years ago. Thank you to all who showed the spirit of cooperation.

AGM will be held in The Marian Hall on Monday, March 3rd at 9pm. All welcome.
