Now really into autumn with a front page celebrating an Olympic medal winner and the return of Wooburn Festival. Also the promise of a Christmas Light and maybe a Fun Night. The next issue be the last one of 2021 – seems incredible.
Our Olympic medal winner reveals how her hockey team coped with being isolated and continued their training programme to come away with a bronze medal in Tokyo. To aid her training she volunteered with SOS and walked to deliver prescriptions all around Wooburn Green to some lovely people. Wooburn Festival’s programme is on page seven and despite many changes of venue they have plans for great events with some outstanding musicians and artists. Great to see Quentin Falk featuring in two of the talks.
An interview with Sue Ambrose is on page 11 as she prepares to retire at the end of October after 26 years behind the desk in the Community Centre office. She will drive off into the sunset with the good wishes of everyone who has shared a laugh with her over these years.
Gardening club for students at Bourne End Academy returns to meeting and growing as the sun shines on their allotment at Peggs. No doubt more to come from them in the future. On page 13 a Year 11 student at the school talks about learning in lockdown and interviews fellow students and teachers. Community Centre news on the middle pages highlights cinema, talks, football lottery and the promise of a panto in January 2022. Oh yes there is! Then on page 25 the Flower Club ladies kick-started their future programme with an afternoon tea, cakes and champagne. They know how to make an impact.
On page 32 there’s Tales from a B&B with shoes making a big impression on Jenny Stacey. Then on page 34 there’s pictures galore from the fabulous Village Show. Thanks to Wooburn and Bourne End Parish Council for organising a wonderful day out in Wooburn Park. River Life on page 35 will have readers smiling while Past Times on page 36 will reveal more details about The Bounty pub on the riverside. From exclusive hotel with aircraft landing strip as one of the features, this is a good read about the pub that everyone loves.
DAVID KEMPSTER was mentioned in the Obits on page 24 in the October/November issue of Target. Attached is the feature on David’s life which appeared in the magazine during 2016. Great memories of a local man who lived and worked in Bourne End all his life.
Much, much more in this issue for the autumn months before Target completes another year of keeping the local community in touch with each other and events taking place through the villages.
