  • Editorial How quickly time flies but this edition sees the completion of the first year's

    life of the Nettleham News. I should like to express my thanks to all who have been involved in its production, too many to mention but especially to those who collate and staple the mag;:,zine and to those who deliver so willingly. A special thank you must however go to l"Jrs Pauline woodforth for her typing effort and \oli thout whinh there would be no booklet.

    I would ask secretaries of the many organisations for dates for the Nettleham Diary and for a continuing supply of articles for the magazine itself.

    A very Nerry Christmas to all our readers.

    . Parish Councll l"lr. G. F. Clarke :&iitor

    After some delay, three odium lighting units, ordered by Nettleham Parish Council, arrived and were duly installed, to be switched on at a ceremony in the Churchyard after vening Service on Sunday 13th November. Each evening from now on, dusk until midnight, they will highlight the details on the 11th century tower and nave, and will be kept on all night for special occasions, such as Christmas.

    The Church lighting project was undertaken by Nettleham Parish Council at the suggestion of its chairman, Coun. Alf Frith. The idea received warm encouragement from the Vicar of Nettleham, the Revd. Tony Burton, and members of the Parochial Church Council. A Sub-committee comprising Parish Councillors, received expert assistance and advice from County Council Lighting engineer, }. David Lloyd. Offers of practical help came in, too: stone kindly donated by Butterley Agf7egates Co., cement and sand from wally Hammond Co.; and the plinth was constructed by Jr. Robert Frith.

    rrhe County Council installed and adjusted the lighting units for the Parish Council -which also involved the more agile members of the Church Lighting Sub-Committee in climbing lampposts to help nanglen the lighting.

    e nightly lighting up of the units will cost the Parish Council less than one pound.a week, and installation costs were substantially reduced by a working party of young people from the village Youth Club, who with their leaders, spent a weekend in the churchyard, digging a long trench to accommodate the cable.

    1be Church Lighting Sub-committee and the Parish Council send their warmest thanks to all, who by their efforts and enthusiasm, ensured the success of this Community project. The Vicar adds especial praise fox the young members of Nettleham Youth Club who made such a good job of laying the cable - for "they tidied up afterwards, and generally showed care and respect for the churchyard in which they had been working".
