Dear Advertisers & Readers 
Bad winter weather was bound to occur following the exceptionally mild New Year period, when records for high winter temperatures were set in many parts of the country. Even the December blizzards endured by the northern counties were swiftly forgotten. Snow is a bit of a pain if you have to move about and plays havoc with the transport network. However, it does have one tremendous virtue, everyone’s garden looks the same. The garden at No 14 Anywhere at all looks just as pristine as the Royal Horticultural Society show garden at Wisley after the white stuff has laid a carpet of brilliant white. Another advantage of a snowy covering is that all the filthy litter that emerges in both town and country in the autumn as the greenery and foliage disappears, gets hidden away until the springtime thaw. There doesn’t appear to be an answer to the continuing bad habits of folk who drop their litter or, worse still, fly tip without any thought for others. Perhaps the only New Year resolution everyone should keep and repeat year after year is ‘KEEP BRITAIN TIDY’.

Now that, hopefully, the country is learning to live with whatever variation Covid is serving up, celebrations of all kinds can go ahead. This month we have St Valentine’s Day on the 14th but the most important events nationally will be those to mark the occasion of Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee. Queen Elizabeth became our monarch and the new Elizabethan age began, on the death of her father, King George V1 on 6th February 1952. 70 years later and the most famous person in the World is still going strong. It is estimated that three quarters of the World’s population has only ever known of one Queen of England, Elizabeth II Long may she reign.
