  1. Colin and I have not always seen eye to eye but I have no doubt he has always had the best interests of the village at heart as he saw it. That is all anyone can do. It would be a pretty boring world if we all agreed.

    I wish Colin well, and hope he stays involved, his wealth of knowledge is still required. Good luck to Neil.
