(December 1998) Letter to the Editor

Having lived in a ‘village where the shop was sold as a residential property, I was delighted to hear that Judith Jefferson had taken over as the Sibford Postmistress and would be continuing with the shop, which I feel is a life-line to many of the residents.

A warm welcome is extended to both Judith and to Terry Byrne, who I understand will mainly be running the shop side. I hope they will be successful and enjoy being part of our village life. Let’s all give them as much support as we can. Also a ‘Thank You’ for their cheese & wine evening.

Not forgetting a big ‘Thank You’ to Helen Henderson & family, the previous owners, and to wish Helen ‘Good Luck’ in whatever she next chooses to do and we hope her back improves!

Yours, M.C.
