From our Chairpersons...
Many of you will be aware that Mark Buckton has been Chair of Manea Connect Committee for the last few years and he has now decided to step down for a combination of reasons, not least a new job and furthering his education! We should like to take this opportunity to thank Mark for his hard work and commitment, especially to the production of Manea Matters. Mark is staying on the Committee so we haven’t said goodbye!
Gloria Brown has served as our Treasurer for a number of years and has also decided to step down but she will continue to work hard on other committees within the village. Thank you, Gloria for all you have done for Manea Connect over the years.
We (Dianne Rowe and Pete Townrow) have taken over as Co-Chairs so please contact either one of us if you have any comments (good or bad), articles for submission in the next edition or you would like to sponsor a future issue. You contact via our contact page.
Finally, we hope you like the contents and find them both interesting and uplifting during the autumn months, none more-so than the poem submitted by Billy Twigglebagger (see p42 of the printed issue) reflecting on why he attends Manea Dinners – just one of the many social groups we are so lucky to have in the village.
