Might I have some space to say a big thank you to you all at the Andover Advertiser for printing Shipton Bellinger's last story about our Mayor and Mayoress for attending our feast at the social club.

We are delighted that Phil has got this seat as he is a good man and gets things done, and we all wish that he and his lady keep their seat there as Mayor and Mayoress, as we need good people to represent us all.

I hope to work with you again after Christmas. God bless our King and Queen and their families. God bless all of you and wish you all the best for the future.
