Honours and honoured feature on the front page with a Wooburn man receiving a British Citizen Award and a musical icon greeting a Bourne End man. Jon Dalton is the man with the honours while Target is honoured to have a photo of Sir Paul McCartney with his magazine on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of The Beatles Abbey Road album.
On page 10 there’s news about a major tree thinning project planned by the National Trust across Winter Hill on the Berkshire side of the River Thames. Children from Claytons School feature on page 11 as they learn about journalism from a Target volunteer. Then write a caption to go with the picture taken at the end of the session.
Space Pod is the feature on page 13 when the local company and sponsors of the individual Christmas light explain how to make the best use of space in today, and tomorrow’s, world of agile working. With a laptop and a phone you need less space. Focussing, collaboration and socialising are key.
Fundraisers feature on page 14 while there’s a lovely review of Bourne End’s panto Beauty and the Beast on page 15. On page 23 there’s news of the book about the first 50 years of the Junior Sports Club. Obits are on page 24 with a historic mystery on page 25.
Brilliant Fish on page 30 sets a challenge for children – over half term perhaps – and there’s book prizes for the winners – plus space on a workshop over the Easter holidays. Give it a go – but read the poem first – it’s lovely. Fun Night picture spread is on pages 34 and 35. And the names arrive in Past Times on page 36. Great issue for the start of 2020 and the 56th volume.
