Editorial - November 2017

Welcome to this Brexit Free Zone. No further mention will be made in this editorial of that process.

 October closed its 2017 visit in a relatively mild way and as I type this on the 31st it seems that November will come in with a little chilll to remind us that winter is on the way. But recent winters have reflected the increasing global warming with some remarkable and unseasonable warm spells. It's hard not to savour that experience when we should be concerned at what we are doing to the planet for coming generations.

Within this month's pages is an appeal for support of a musical event at Mamble in aid of Nineveh Care Farm.l won't repeat the date details, but will state again my indignation that such a low cost and effective operation for the less fortunate should have its grant cut. This place that is largely run by volunteers and brings self respect and dignity to people who not long ago would have been locked away out of sight, this place that shows them kindness and love, has another problem to overcome if they are to continue their excellent work.

 Whatever happened to the Big Society that was going to recognise and foster the huge amount of unpaid work that makes this a decent country to live in? I am not a Communist and will not make any attempt at encouraging illegal action, but all decent peop e will surely want to help the work at Nineveh continue, whether by fund raising, donations or simply providing material that can be converted into toys and furniture to sell.
