Your news… your ECN!

Dear Readers,
I hope you all had a pleasant Christmas time and we wish you all a Very Happy New Year.
– and a Very Happy Birthday to Betty Barnfield, whose 100th birthday we help to celebrate on page 2!

On a sadder note, we have learned that Keith Plested passed away on 4th January. Keith was aged 96 and had lived in Nupend virtually all his life. He was a much loved and respected member of the community, having served as a magistrate and leader of the Parish Council in the past and was considered a real ‘gentleman’ by all those who knew him. Our sympathies go out to his family – especially to Julian, who cared for him for many years. Keith’s life was celebrated in a beautiful thanksgiving service in St Michael’s Church on Monday 20th January.

We have plenty of community life for you to enjoy in this edition – if you have something special to be proud of, or just to share, do let us know, we welcome all your stories and photos.

Jan, Mary and Tom
