Paul Has Made A Timely Comment

It is true that my previous post is off subject – not about memories of the village – and I must admit that I winced at and wondered about its likely reception when editing it. My mind was full of mild turmoil; do we let the memories side of it lapse into occasional but relevant articles or do we throw current affairs in amongst memories of the village with a view to creating more regular articles and hopefully maintain interest?  Do we rely on Facebook as the mainstay?

Paul has the absolute right to govern and edit his facility and as a matter of fact I can fully understand his point of view.  I intimated recently that my writing was coming to an end in July so that fixes the problem in any case.It had to come to an end because  I have virtually exhausted my contributions to the village history at a time when several other things of a permanent nature are pressing. 

It has been a privilege to write on this site and I thank Paul for giving me the opportunity. I do hope that our tour around the village, the upturned coffin incident, the debate about the ‘magnificent seven’, vicar’s Welby’s family history etc etc has been of interest.

There is one last point to make: if one or two of you can make 17/7 [1pm] at Ushaw Moor cricket club for a pint so well and good. If that is inconvenient never mind!

    I am deeply disappointed that you are going to turn your writing skills elsewhere rather than the Ushaw Moor web site. I have enjoyed reading your writings over the past few years. I am quite sure you have much more to add.

    It is a real pity that you are visiting on the 17th. as I am unable to attend due to a family celebration and get together on that date. Any other weekend would have suited me fine. I was really looking forward to meeting you and having a couple of pints. Much success to your elbow Wilf.

    Thanks for your kind words Brian. It is not the end of July yet so I am not quite finished; I have the time and intention to do a final piece which will cover my trip to County Durham next week. The result should be up on site before August the first.
