Preview of July Dragon

Observant readers will notice that Angela Tucker’s name has gone from the committee. She has been involved for 24 years and was in charge of finance. The committee are sorry to see her go but persuaded her to write an article about the history of how her involvement occurred and how the magazine has evolved in the last nearly a quarter of a century! Thank you Angela,

Unfortunately the fete will take place after the Dragon has been printed but the organisers are congratulated for being brave enough to have faith that Affinity water would keep to their promise and clear the green in time and they have!!

The visit of the Thaxted Morris Men to the pub is highlighted by photos and John Smith’s Tennis report tells us of the success of Nigel Hogg’s ladder system which has proved very popular.
Brian has been instrumental in ensuring the system works smoothly.

For the active be inspired by the great efforts of some of The Omega Club in participating in the Stansted 10k.
Hopefully that will inspire more to get involved on a Monday evening.
Maybe the readers will decide to take part in the Debden Cycle Race or find more to inspire in the Husch Hall as noted in the village diary.

It is with regret we report the death of 98 year old Sid Tutt,
a great stalwart of the village. Our sympathies go to his family and a eulogy will follow in the August edition.

Finally the District Council report give a crumb of comfort re the Fairfield Development as Petrina now has a voice on the planning committee! Fingers crossed.
