 The Editorial  
The weather is always a safe topic for conversation and as I write, it is sunny and mild - a perfect spring day; but we still have all of February to get through and even then there might be a “Beast from the East” lying in wait ... ! However, no matter what comes we should count our blessings that we do not have to deal with forest fires, earth quakes and volcanoes.  
On the other hand, our village community does still face its own version of an “existential” threat to its continued rural existence. A decision is expected imminently on Stansted airport’s application for permission to increase its permitted throughput from 35 to 43 million passengers per annum (mppa). Developers also continue to seek to build ever more houses both right in the village and on its edges, nibbling away at the countryside that surrounds us.
So in this new decade, the 2020s, remember what is important to you and make a resolution to play an active part to preserve it.
