03-197207XX-12This corner is really a long list – of places, people you might like to know about or one day need. We can only, of course, publish the information that comes to us. There’s a limit to what we can find out for ourselves, and too many pubs, dubs, movement offices and so on for us to visit. So – if there’s something we should now about, then you should ALL know about it. If your favourite pub or local group isn’t mentioned, write and tell us where it is and so forth. You can see from the listings themselves the sort of thing we think is of use and interest. These aren’t ads – we print all information free. The page is all yours!
