THE DELABOLE SLATE ISSUE 374 SEPTEMBER 2017 Delabole.firstname.lastname@example.org So Who Reads ‘The Slate’? Deliverers, contributors, advertisers - do you ever wonder who actually reads our village newsletter? The answer is, plenty of people and not just in the village. We had an e-mail from Chris recently, who told us that on the Village page of his Delabole website, the first two comments were: Shirley Holman I was born in Delabole and still have relatives there. I really enjoy reading The Slate on the net. I now live in Lancashire, thank you for all your hard work. Mary Morris I grew up in Delabole but am now in Oz. So glad to get this. Must remember to feed the box at the Post Office when I’m next back… That’d be brilliant Mary, or you could e-mail The Slate with any memories of your time in the village. Thank you everyone who’s taken the trouble to ‘write’ - and thank you to all those who keep The Slate going. SLATE DONATIONS Many thanks to the generous folk who have left some money in the box at the Post Office. Any contribution towards the production costs of The Delabole Slate are very gratefully received and your support is much appreciated. Thank you.
