It seems a long time since I wrote Escot news but of course last month Eve and Keith filled the spot. We held a farewell lunch for them early in March since when they have moved to Calne; I spoke to them a few days after their move and all seems to have gone well although they are surrounded by boxes!

We have just held our Annual Parochial Church Meeting, the occasion on which we present last year’s annual report and accounts and elect church wardens, Parochial Church Council (PCC) and officers for the following year. Numbers at the meeting were at an all time low of six but if anyone would like to receive a copy of the report and accounts please let me know. I was elected as the sole church warden; all six current members of the PCC were re-elected and Shelagh Rogers not only joined the PCC but agreed to act as secretary for which we are most grateful.
