THE APRIL DRAGON 
As well as all the regular contributions from the Church, The Cock, Daisy May’s Farm, Gerry’s Giggles, Henham & Ugley Primary School, Stansted Hall & Elsenham Cricket Club, Henham Parish Council, Scouts, Stansted U3A, Tennis Club, Uttlesford District Councillors, WI, and Veterinary Matters, the April Dragon welcomes a new contributor, reporting on the Elsenham Bowls Club. 
With Spring now well established, articles from the Gardens of Easton Lodge, Hatfield Forest and The Hundred Parishes Society remind us of the many different places in and around Henham to visit and enjoy and advance notice of the Great Bardfeld Garage Sale on 11th May. Finally, not neglecting cultural activities, there is also information about events in April at Saffron Hall and a concert given by the Bishops Stortford Choral Society on Saturday 30thMarch at 7:30pm in the Methodist Church, South Street, Bishops Stortford.


 Editorial
I wish to thank all our annual and ad hoc advertisers who make it possible for us to provide a free copy of The Dragon to every household in Henham, every month. This month, reflecting the start of our annual advertising year, you will see a completely new set of lettered pages and, next month, for ease of reference, we shall include a pull-out Directory of all our annual advertisers.  
Although not as immediate as Facebook, we aim to keep readers abreast of what is going on in and around Henham and thank all our contributors who make it such an interesting and informative publication. Also, even though regularly featuring Church and Parish Council news, The Dragon is independent of both. 
Henham is a great place to live for many reasons not least because so many people volunteer their time and energy to organise so many different events and activities; but they only flourish when we support them. So why not go along to the Coffee Morning, now held in OSCA. It is open to all villagers to meet over coffee, tea and cake for a morning cuppa and a friendly natter. Please tell your friends and family, bring a neighbour who may need a little company or a newcomer to the village. The next two coffee Mornings are on Thursday 25th April and Thursday 16th May in OSCA Time: 9am-11.30am. It’s a free event but people can make a donation if they wish and any proceeds will go to Henham School PSA.
