Osmotherley Messenger

Osmotherley Messenger – The yellow Osmotherley Messenger will be 10 years old this year, apart from a couple of spoof editions by persons who have remained anonymous, (we’re still waiting for the culprits to come forward 🙂 – see attached, dated but still funny), the April 2017 edition will be the hundredth. We hope you’ve all come to love that little yellow sheet popping through your door each month, but if not I hope it has occasionally proved useful.

In order to celebrate this milestone, the editors have met and are planning a bumper edition, with the community’s help of course. We have a few ideas in the pipeline including an interview with Hugh Thompson who chaired the parish plan committee where the idea was born.

Over the years the editors have built up an ‘Informants’ list of people who contribute articles, adverts etc. and these people are sent a monthly reminder of the deadline for copy. The editors have always maintained the principle of the newsletter being produced by the community for the community. With this in mind we’d like to remind you that everyone in the community is welcome to contribute and we do try to publish everything that is sent to us, although it’s important that we do maintain editorial control. So if you have anything that you believe will be of interest to the residents of the Osmotherley area please do send it to us. The details of the editors, the relevant email address, and the deadline for copy are included on the back of each edition. But as a reminder the email address for all copy is os.messenger@gmail.com.

If you have anything you would like including in the 100th edition please send it to the above email address by Monday 20th March. The editors are always happy to discuss contributions. Thanks a lot.
