I am looking for people who have a spiritual or creative story to tell.
Sometimes when we venture through the darkness we come to the light – I am a
strong believer that hardship forces us to face a reality that we may have been
shying away from.
Creative minds in particular are often lost minds – it has been said that
madness can afford certain individuals certain resources and abilities that are
not available to others.
If you have an insightful story to tell then please get in contact as I need
candidates for my next book. I am looking to interview, telephone or email.
Grayshottâ€™s Christmas Lights were switched on during the Christmas Market last Saturday to much enthusiastic applause. The market in the square was another great success and probably the best attended yet, buoyed up by the thirty-something strong rock choir plus some family and friends. Santa was so busy he was largely confined to his grotto sadly [...]

A MESSAGE FROM THE CHANCELLOR
WE’RE ON THE RIGHT TRACK AND WE WON’T TURN BACK.
My message today on the economy is simple: it’s a hard road, but we’re making progress. And to turn back now would be a disaster. Labour’s plans to borrow even more would take us back to the economic mess they created.
The economy is healing and a steady recovery is forecast. The deficit has fallen by a quarter in just two years and is forecast to go on falling. Exports to emerging markets have doubled and 1.2 million new jobs have been created in the private sector since this Government came to office.
We are doing better than many of our international competitors. We have lower unemployment than in the eurozone or the United States and next year the UK is predicted to grow faster than France or Germany.
We are on the right path, so we are sticking to the deficit plan we set out two years ago. I will not cut spending any further in this Parliament. Because the economic situation is tougher, it will take four years, not three to get our debt falling.
Instead by making savings from bureaucracy, from the benefits bill, and by ensuring that the better off play their part, we will do more to help families and back businesses.
To help Britain win the global race:
Â£5 billion of capital investment in science, education and roads, paid for by more savings in Whitehall.
Savings to pay off the deficit, with working age welfare uprated by 1% for 3 years, a 1% uprating of some tax thresholds too and restrictions on the very largest pensions pots.
A new gas strategy to ensure we can exploit new shale gas reserves.To help British businesses compete:
Another 1p cut in corporation tax, so it will have fallen from 28p to 21p under this Government.
An increase in the annual investment allowance to Â£250,000, this will cover the total annual investment undertaken by 99% of all the businesses in Britain.To help people who want to work and get on:
Cancelling January’s 3p fuel rise, meaning fuel duty is 10p lower than under Labour’s plans.
Increase in the personal allowance by a further Â£235. That means in April 2013 the personal allowance will go up by Â£1,335 – the largest ever cash rise. 24 million people will get a tax cut, with most being Â£267 better off in cash next year. It also means 2.2 million people will have been taken out of income tax.
Clearing up Labour’s mess was never going to be easy, but we’re making progress. We’re on the right track and we won’t turn back.

ARTHRITIS CARE GRAYSHOTT CHRISTMAS LUNCH 2012
Fortunately if anyone noticed my not so deliberate mistake in the last Parish Magazine they ignored it. Publication date was 23rd & for some reason I thought 23rd December (not November) so I wrote that weâ€™d already had our Christmas lunch ! Despite my misinformation most of our members got to the lunch on Dec 4th. Thanks to the Village Hall Management Committee who had made the hall look very festive the weekend before and Phyllis Cherryman for her red and gold table settings, together with Carol Hampshireâ€™s lovely table centres, it was a very colourful event.
After Grace by President Peter White, Monica Rodger and her catering team served up a delicious lunch of roast chicken followed by a selection of deserts. We donâ€™t have a speaker at these twice yearly lunches so members were able to share a relaxed hour or two of companionship. Past Chairman Sybil Saunders thanked the Committee for organising the lunch
The mainstay of our catering, Phyllis Cherryman, has decided to stand down from our monthly meetings but hopefully weâ€™ll be able to call on her for our summer and Christmas lunches. Edna Calton & Sheila Dorsett will attempt to follow in her footsteps.
We donâ€™t have a meeting in January as the first Tuesday is a Bank Holiday so we look forward to welcoming all members back on Feb 5th when Mr Mel Rees will talk on â€˜The Amusing Side of Lifeâ€™ If the weather is unfavourable we will cancel the meetings if we feel it is not safe for members to travel â€“ call any of the committee members on the back of your membership card if in doubt.
We have had some new volunteers thanks to our appeals but we never turn anyone away and we would really like some new members too. Please call 01428 643983 for more information
I have just walked home from the Coop and thought about how much I hate the blue strip lights and think they spoil the Christmas atmosphere. Then I saw this forum and have to agree Roz but we lost the war. Horrid!
