An alternative Christmas card

As a change from writing individual Christmas cards to your local friends and neighbours, how about trying the idea first proposed last year and send your season’s greetings via The Bridge, and at the same time support the upkeep of your local church

St Mary’s Long Wittenham St. Michael & All Angels, Clifton Hampden

If you would like to take part please contact Clare Owen (editor) 407654, Deadline 15th November Cost £6 made payable to “Bridge Editorial” plus your donation to the church, which can be gift-aided using an envelope of which there are no doubt plenty in the church.

    I had the privilege of being brought up in Long Wittenham,mum,Hilda Carter was left
    to look after my 2 sisters and me after Dad,Horace Carter left her for a clippy in Oxford.
    How she managed to feed us baffles me.
    Although im now living near Heathrow Airport,the village is a daily thought in my mind,does anyone remember Martin Rogers nearly drowning near the weir?
    or the helicopter crash landing behind the Machine Man pub?
    I wonder how many people i went to school with in the village actually still live there !
    i would love to hear from anybody who remembers me.I hope to recieve a few replies and maybe get in touch with them.
    I’m married with 3 kids and 5 grandchildren,work as i said at heathrow and i keep meaning to return to the village for old times sake and visit my dads grave as well as my grandparents but its finding the time.
    We used to live at 25 Saxons Heath and my grand parents lived at 2 fieldside,now known as Carters cottage?(so im told)Anyway i hope to recieve a few nice replies from people that i knew,merry christmas and a very happy new year to all of you,god bless.
