MENTIONING – that next Saturday evening the lights are being switched on in Mossley, so parking may be a little restricted.
NOT A BAD WEEK – perhaps we have all saved a little on heating bills this past week. Our front door has received a lick of paint and the plastic cleaned – mulling over a different colour. And, our Christmas tree provider in Abbey Village, has promised to save us a decent tree -knowing how particular we are re such matters!
