Fun Night and the children’s light winner are the front page stories with Henry from St Paul’s School showing his chirpy robin design that captured the eye of the judges. All the details of Fun Night are there with free car parking, road closures for safety and a host of things to do, see and enjoy on Friday 10 December from 5pm. Not forgetting Santa and his reindeer.




On page three Wooburn Residents Association talk about their way forward and the encouraging news that a number of younger people have volunteered to be part of the process. Well done and special ‘thank you’ for a new tree in Wooburn Park. On page four there are pictures from Sue’s leaving party along with her own Sun front page courtesy of Target.

Reading the story on page 12 will inspire the adventurer in everyone. Guy (66) from Little Marlow, with his rowing partner, plan to take on the Atlantic Challenge and row across that ocean from the Canaries to Antigua. If successful they will be the oldest pair to achieve this but there’s mountainous seas, fierce winds and more before they reach land. Log onto the Talisker Whiskey Atlantic Challenge to learn more.

Wooburn Festival features on page 14 after a challenging time that included venue changes then illness and petrol shortages. Congratulation to everyone involved in this fabulous celebration of the arts. On page 18 the chirpy robin features in the Environmental Report and reminds everyone why this little bird is such a garden favourite.

On the middle pages there’s details of lots happening at the Community Centre, including the carol concert and pantomime. Make sure you book your tickets as audience participation is essential. A delightful film is planned for just after Christmas to keep the festive feeling aglow until the thrill of the new year.

Footballers and swimmers show happy faces in the report from Bourne End Junior Sports Club on page 23. Then there are Christmas Messages on page 24. On page 26 there’s a message from a founder member of the community association asking to hear from other founder members as 2022 is the 60th anniversary of the formation of the Community Qssociation. He’s convinced that there are others out there with memories of this event.

Funding the Children’s Christmas Light on The Parade gave Bourne End WI a challenge that had to be met. Lots of smiles and eventual success means that the village will have its special light again. And thanks to Henry for a great design. Target’s own teenage reporter meets the man behind Marlow Film Studio and finds someone who has the movies running through his veins. His enthusiasm is infectious. Well done Lola.

Lots more to read, Christmas events to support, Target is packed with interest. And remember, 2022 is the 60th anniversary of the Community Association. Best wishes for a wonderful Christmas and a celebratory new year.
