casualties in London and the
police in their speedy response and fine
work following the raid on the shop here.
We are greatly blessed with many dedicated

a great debt of gratitude. It was heartening, too, to see
how many ordinary workers and bystanders were willing
to get involved in helping and caring. It was also great
that we did not allow the bombs to change the weekend’s

Second, I want to remind us all that
we are all responsible for the society

to care enough for others to be
willing to help whenever we can and
to influence our children and each
other for good. We all need to be

to attend meetings for a long time so it was on the
cards that he would probably have to resign. A young
lady who had been attending many of the Council
meetings asked if she could be considered for the post.
She was told she would have to wait until the council
had received the councillor’s letter of resignation.
Each month she continued to ask if the councillor had
resigned yet. A few months ago when he did
eventually resign, the council put up the notice, for
people to apply to become a councillor, on the Village
Notice-board. At that month’s meeting they also put
notices on the chairs of the meeting. Unluckily she
