Please help us give people the information that they need - tell us please!

We are sorry that this edition had to be delayed: we had to ensure the safety of our volunteer team of Deliverers as well as ourselves, but we are back.
Missing Link Subscriptions 2020-2021
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we have had to alter our usual production and subscriptions collection cycle. We were unable to publish the Summer 2020 edition in mid-May as we had insufficient material to include, given that local social activities and services were suspended. We normally collect your subscriptions in late May & June.
You are now reading your special interim Summer 2020 edition. You are not being charged for this copy. Instructions and advice for collecting your subs will be given in the Autumn 2020 edition: we will be collecting subs in late August & September. Henceforth, our subscription years will run from September to June.
This edition is a free issue for all subscribers and advertisers.  As such, some adverts that are usually in colour are in black and white.  We have done this to keep costs down but we do feel that is was important to get an issue through your letterbox as soon as was viable.

Listed below is some up-to-date information that we have on local businesses and organisations which may be of use to those of us living in the villages.
