where’s Jenny

Hiding?


Dear Neighbours,

Well, I was reflecting -as you do- on

the passing of time the other day.

You know, when I bent down to

unload the dishwasher and I ‘ooofed’ on my

way back up. And I thought to myself ‘When did

you start to do that?’ ‘When did you start

emitting that strange noise every time you

bend down or back up?’ I don’t know exactly

when it was but I know that it was certainly

one of those ‘marker’ moments. You know

you’re growing old when you start to do such

things…

Oh well. It will be a ’significant birthday’ for

me next year, so it’s only right. Just like it will

be a significant birthday for our community

magazine and business directory next January:

I can’t believe I am saying this but we’re

celebrating our 10th Birthday!

10 years of serving our community, promoting

local business and bigging up our local clubs,

societies and organisations.

Latest amongst them, Purley Memorial Hall,

Beechwood mortgages, Blue Angel Care, Andy

Embery Carpentry, Brackenwood, Lucy P,

StageAbility, CP Groundworks, Avalon

Accounting, Rebecca Kingwell Financial

Management, Andy 2 know & more. See their

entries inside and do not forget to use the

index on page 46 to locate them in the

magazine.

Speak soon… Mike

where’s Jenny?

She’s hiding in places

in the magazine. Behind a

door, like here, behind a

box or… well, you tell us.

When you’ve found her, tell us

where she is and you could WIN.

The South Oxfordshire Business Network (SOBN) has been established to provide a

peer to peer group networking opportunity for businesses based in and around South

Oxfordshire.

The concept of the network is that people buy from people. The events of the network

encourage collaboration and relationship building.

Our aim is to help established businesses build long-term profitable relationships and

strategic alliances with each other.

The majority of events are held in or near Didcot, a unique location for networking.

Some events are held across South Oxfordshire. The main events contain a social

element and are based around building relationships in a relaxed environment.

If you own or work in a business in or near South Oxfordshire, why not come and
