The Messenger office will be closed over the holidays from 21st December, re-opening on 7th January. Our phone lines and emails will still be working though, so if you do have a story, let us know!


We incorrectly identified the man pictured in the ‘silk postcards’ article, on page 6 of the last issue. He is not Colin Levesley, as we said, but his father-in- law, Herbert Pickford, at home in Reginald Street. Apologies.
