This issue sends loyal greetings to Her Majesty and includes stories about her Coronation in 1953. The issue includes all the regular features from two parish councils and parish councillors, to Past Times and a nostalgic look back on what life in Wooburn Green used to be like.
The Community Centre pages are packed with activities and reports from groups who meet there. Our Junior Sports Club talks about the swimming section and their achievements.
Upper Thames Sailing Club have pictures and a report from their Open Day and fund raising for Sail4Cancer. An active supporter went on a walk with the U3A and found out more about the group. Vineyard Secrets tastes English Wines and is delighted with the result. And the regular Environmental Report talks about the blackbird – a very common sight in the average garden – but a bird with a long tradition.
Memories of some well-known people are featured especially super sportsman Freddie Hawkins. Sadly two Target distributors died recently and are remembered. Letters to the Editor feature the Marlow film studio with differing viewpoints – this subject is sure to attract comments in future issues of Target. And the commissioned 1950s backscene of the area around Bourne End Station is progressing well with riverside houses and allotments slotting into place.
River Life is always an interesting read from a man who knows the River Thames. Reports from clubs, churches and groups as well as a calendar with all the dates for June and July make Target your essential reading. Finally the Falcon Quiz poses some challenging questions for readers to ponder as they enjoy tea outside in the sunshine.
There’s an appeal for more advertisers especially encouraging businesses to support the community magazine. Target provides the community with local news and is now celebrating the 60 years of the formation of the Community Association back in 1962. The aim was the building of a community centre where people could meet socially and enjoy a range of clubs and activities.
Most important is the appeal for your Jubilee pictures whether it is a street party, special event or just sitting by the riverside waving a Union Jack. They will feature in the August/September issue of Target.
Target Magazine is published every 2 months by Bourne End (Bucks) Community Association.
