NEW MAGAZINE. The Church in Borrowdale is starting to say Good-bye to the Benefice of Upper Derwent and Hello to Saint John’s, Keswick. It’s an exciting time. Welcome to Charles Hope, our new vicar. First a word of thanks to Peter Vivash and the Churches in Braithwaite, Thornthwaite and Newlands. It’s been good to work with you and our Vicar, Peter, has always helped and guided us. The immense amount of time Peter put into the Valley, our churches and the school is much appreciated. This magazine which he has pulled together for years has served us well, but now we have to create our own magazine – The Borrowdale News. The first edition was published for the 1st of April 2016. Jeff Hall (77856) has kindly agreed to handle distribution; Sharon Thompson (77032) will handle business advertisements; and Gill Bulch will be our artistic/graphic advisor. Malcolm (77671) shall try and pull the thing together. Of course, we are dependent on you reading it and contributing to it – cartoons, photographs, news, plans and general complaints about everything! Remember it is to be a community project sponsored by the Church in Borrowdale. The Borrowdale News is distributed free to every household and business in the Valley (including second homes and holiday lets) and to 50 people who live away and have asked to receive it every month. We hope that you will advertise your skills in this new venture. We believe that it will bring you work. The cost for a small advertisement will be £35.00 for one year.
