250th Issue Cover Colouring Competition

Instead of our usual cover design the August 2015 issue, no. 250, had a special colouring competition image to celebrate our 250th issue. Although open to all children of readers, we had just seven entries, which made the task of judging a winner so much harder. In the end we decided that they all deserved to win, so each entrant received a small prize from Burton News.

We have created a small Gallery here to showcase the entries for the competition. We hope that you like them as much as we do! Click any small thumbnail image to open the larger version, and use the navigation arrows to move through the images. Click the X to close the Gallery when you have seen them all.

Auditor Needed

We still have need of a person to check / audit our accounts each year. It's not an onerous job (said the Treasurer!) but needs to be done between our year end in December 2017, and our annual meeting in April 2018. I f you have a couple of spare hours and could help out your village newsletter we should be very grateful. Please contact us via the Contact Form here if you would like to volunteer.

We have now had not one, but two, people offer help with this, so thank you both. The Treasurer is thrilled!


Seasons Greetings

A very Merry Christmas and a Happy, Peaceful and Healthy New Year to all our readers!
