Welcome to the October/November edition of the ICN!
This edition of the ICN welcomes so many contributors that there are over 12 different 'voices' inside. This makes the edition very special and we are grateful to everyone who submitted items.
This month we find out what has been happening with the building work at the URC all these months, not that it has stopped the regular activities from progressing! The URC now has an Interim Moderator and Richard Piper writes with details of the scheduled upcoming events needing your support... including possibly this year's earliest mention of a certain rotund, red costumed, jolly gentleman who's normally safely tucked up at the North Pole!
We find out the answer to the question posed in a previous ICN by the Sea Scouts, of whether they had a separate Ickenham division. Elsewhere we celebrate the overwhelming success of the recent Churches' Holiday Club, the wonderful exhibits at the Hortuicultural Show and the endeavours of a certain local President.
Read all about these items, plus many others, by clicking on 'Current Issue’ at the top of the page.
Submissions for the December/January 2017 ICN edition must be with the team by 12noon of 10th November 2017 at the latest. Late submissions will be held for a later edition. All items are subject to editorial review.
If you are interested in advertising in the ICN, or have any advertising related queries at all, please contact Edwin Lee at firstname.lastname@example.org or on 07913 430989. And forthcoming events and meeting details should be sent to Patricia Lee at email@example.com, also on 07913 430989.
PLEASE NOTE - Patricia and Edwin will be stepping down at the end of the year after 12 years in their Forthcoming Events and Advertising roles, to take full advantage of their retirement years. We thank them for all their exceptional hard work and wish them well. Their roles have not yet been filled so if you have some spare time each month and would like to put "something back" into the community, please do get in touch and find out more by emailing Felicity at firstname.lastname@example.org
We are currently updating the website and, following Patricia's retirement, from the beginning of next year, Forthcoming Events will only be accepted when entered via the website. After moderation, they will automatically appear on the website and will then be added into the relevant hard copy ICN with no further input from the clubs and societies. Further details will follow but we hope this will be an exciting improvement allowing more events to be publicised around Ickenham at short notice and independently of the ICN deadlines.
The ICN is always very grateful to receive any donations; cheques should be made out to "PCC of St Giles' Church" and sent to Patricia Lee at The Office, St. Giles' Church, Ickenham, Middlesex, UB10 8BG. Patricia personally acknowledges these individually in writing or by email. Please note that the bank no longer accepts cheques made out to "ICN" nor to "Ickenham Church News".
