While we were convinced El Presidente has been a teacher, and only a teacher, all his working life, spies in Cornwall have now exposed his moonlighting as an Undertaker in Perranporth. This has clearly been a profitable sideline for many years, as John has been able to hand over the day-to-day running of the business to Bob Chudleigh. When Bob was contacted by this Newsletter, he said he'd known John very well for many years. The business was doing very well and was profitable, and it's now able to keep John in the manner to which he's become accustomed, ie lots of diesel and beer to go ringing all over the country. You're a dark horse, El Presidente!

This Newsletter survives only because of the contributions you make to it. Without them it will fail. Articles can be submitted to the undersigned via email or to the postal addresses shown above, or to any committee member.

Please contribute something, however small (or large). You would be surprised the things people enjoy reading about. A few suggestions: an historical item; a funny story; a quarter peal report; poems; puzzles; tales, events past and to come; a ringing tour, even! Send them in. They will all be welcome - and photos, too, you'll notice.

. . . . and don't worry if you think your handwriting is unintelligible. It can normally be translated. Just send it in!

(We have the facility to scan photo prints if you haven't.) Please let us know ownership of photos for acknowledgement where relevant. If you have a long article, you might consider breaking it into parts.

(* If you've only got Microsoft Works, then Save As your article into Rich Text Format - ie, suffix .rtf - and send in this form.)
