“No day is safe from news of you.”
― Sylvia Plath

I casually decided to buy the local newspaper today, something which I rarely do now that I help out with getting the news out there a lot more quickly at Andover and Villages. But imagine my surprise when I saw that a photograph I popped out to snap late last Saturday had made it to the front page with a full credit (the newspaper are usually quite bad at that) to both myself and Andover and Villages!

The Carnival last week was a huge success by most accounts, but unfortunately three were injured on one of the rides during it, reports suggest all are recovering or recovered, but it was still a bit of a shock for our quiet sleepy town where the top news before was about the theft of grass seeds…

Thank you Andover Advertiser!


And then! Not only that, but you’re urged to turn to page five where there’s a full story and yet another shot! And my name again! I was incredibly excited, probably unreasonably so…! It just goes to show that being in the right place at the right time pays off. It’s quite amazing to see your name in print, even if it is a slightly blurry shot or two of January storms!
