Editor's Wife's Note: Yes, you did read correctly! As you may have noticed in the small print of the last issue, your Editor's carefree single days are now behind him - we did actually get married! Thus, it seems, I am deemed the honour of composing the editorial. (I think it's called the "Why bark yourself if ..." syndrome, isn't it?). Anyway, I'm told it pays to let them think they're winning for a while, so he's gotten away with it this time!...

Many thanks to all who contributed to this issue: your input is greatly appreciated - keep it coming! Articles form the organiser of Lidlington's various clubs and organisations have been readily provided, to keep everyone informed of forthcoming events. (Shell club sounds well worth checking out if, unlike me, you're not too old to get in!).

What we'd like to see in addition, is more widespread ENTHUSIASM, in the form of contributions from others in the village. So, if you have information to share, praise or congratulations to bestow, an interesting story to tell, articles for sale or wanted, or just feel tempted to speak your mind in the Moanies Corner, don't just think abut it, get in touch with any member of the production team to get it put into print. Also, anyone wishing to assist in the production of the Advertiser, just let us know - volunteers would be most welcome!

In this issue, we'd like especially, to promote the idea of increasing business/skills awareness within the village. We feature regular advertisements for most of the shops and the (now) better known businesses in the village, but there are others of which we've heard by word of mouth which have not yet made use of the Advertiser to advertise their products or skills. Advertising rates are very reasonable, so please contact us and maybe we can help your business by featuring it in the Advertiser. We know you're out their!!

Gala Day 1996 The annual Lidlington Gala Day and Hill Race took place this year in the first Bank Holiday Monday of May as last year. Once again we were met with a dry and sunny day, and not quite as much wind as last year! With an increased number of stalls, and also more events this year, there was a great deal more to see and do, and the increase in the total number of visitors over last year underlined the point that the Gala Day is getting better each year.

Local NewsGreen Man Re-Roofed
I'm sure most of you noticed the Green Man having it's thatched Roof "re-topped". It was fascinating to watch what was only very recently considered a "dying art" obviously still alive and well

Local NewsFlies in your face...
Once again the village has been plagued this summer with flies. The air thick with them have driven folk inside and forced everyone to keep their windows firmly shut. It also seems strange that the problem seemed to get worse at weekends. Accusations have been aimed in all directions...
