June Dragon

After at least fifteen years as an editor for the Dragon Ros Heywood has decided to step down. Things have changed a bit over those fifteen years and when Ros first joined the committee copy and paste meant just that – cutting up articles and getting the Pritt stick out! Luckily Ros, although largely self taught, embraced technology and has always been our go-to person to sort out awkward formats. She has patiently trained Sheena, Carol and myself when we put together our first magazines and is always very supportive of our efforts. Luckily for us Ros will continue on the committee, helping Jim with the distribution, but we would like to say a big thank you to Ros for all her help and commitment over the years.

This month we feature a centre pull-out section for the directory of advertisers. This useful document lists all the businesses that advertise in The Dragon by purpose and then states what page they are on in the magazine. So from chiropody to spectacles, thatching to waste removal, Pilates to public houses and many more, we’ve got it covered!

Everyone agrees that the Henham village fete is one of the highlights of the year and “A Right Royal A-fayre” was no different. The sun shone, the cakes were delicious and the beer flowed. We were entertained with dancers, singers and the tug-of-war- the latter hotly contested but ultimately a draw as the rope broke! Well done to the organisers and everyone that helped.

The fete may have inspired you to volunteer some of your time to a village organisation and both HUSCH and The Dragon committees are looking for new members. Please email for information on The Dragon or contact any of the committee members; Sarah Coke 850438 is the contact for HUSCH.

Looking forward to events in June we have a very busy month with a charity barn dance on 22nd, Henham 3k and 10k fun run on 24th and the school fete on 30th. Hopefully the sun will continue to shine for these very worthwhile events too. 

Also this month afternoon teas are back (16th) and the Parish Council will be conducting its annual meeting (7th).

If you have an event in the village you would like to publish please let us know so that we can put it into the calendar and hopefully avoid any clashes.

Carol Elson is the editor for July; please send your articles by 12th June to
