Julie and Paula (Sullivan) would like to thank all those friends
and neighbours who attended Brian’s funeral at St Marys on 3
January. We thank you for all your support and kindness to us and
Dad throughout his illness and during the sad time following his
passing. The cards, letters and kind words were very much
appreciated. The collection for the Alzheimers Society raised
£553.60. Thank you to all those who gave so generously.
Your chance to publish a short story
Have you ever thought of yourself as a writer? It is often said
that everyone has at least one good story in them. Well, now’s your
chance, thanks to a group of authors who are joining together to
publish an anthology of short stories in 2018.
The writers have decided to throw down the gauntlet and invite
other residents of Freeland, Hanborough and North Leigh to write a
story between 2,500 and 7,500 words long and submit it online by
31st July 2017. There’s no theme so you can let your imagination
Selected entries will be included in the anthology which will be
published in time for the 2018 Chipping Norton Literary Festival.
Any proceeds from the book will be donated to charity.
