My thanks for those many friends who have contacted me with congratulation upon this new venture in conveying information and sense to the population at large. I looked out this morning at the imposing tower of St Andrew's church in the village and contemplated which service to attend. The calling of the cloth has never been mine, but simply to enter such a splendid architectural monument as St Andrew's conveys the greatness of man's achievements in a proper cause. I have a purpose and a vision. I intend to share them over the coming days and I will strive to create a better understanding for us all.
