Dear ICN Reader

Welcome to the November edition of ICN!

This month's ICN rightly focuses on Remembrance Day and both Ickenham Churches will have Remembrance services on Sunday 9th November, with the URC also having a live link up to the services at the Cenotaph in London when the 2 minutes' silence will be observed. St Giles' will also have an Act of Remembrance on Tuesday 11th. There are stories and anecdotes from both the URC's Celia Miller and St Giles' Felicity Davies relating to remembrance. And there are echoes of wartime remembering too as the Swakeleys Home Guard Association celebrates their 50th anniversary. The accompanying photo reminded me of my mother weighing down her gas mask bag by hiding her sandwiches in it because she hated taking the mask itself to school - but she was always found out and made to take in her gas mask! The Chairman of the SHGA himself, Alan Noad, said his gas mask had a picture of Mickey Mouse on it to encourage children to wear them! Sadly, Mickey Mouse wasn't visible at the anniversary celebrations which nevertheless went famously with Ickenham residents raising an impressive amount for Charity.

And there are even more wartime memories in Sean Kelly's new book, launched this month, which celebrates Ickenham's involvement in the Second World War with so many proximate military bases - highlighting many anecdotes from personnel stationed locally, one of whom was a notable celebrity and another was non other than Ickenham's Henry Farwell, sadly no longer with us, but who had a colourful service career, which included being shot down twice!

Elsewhere we are reminded that Christmas is approaching! The Churches are gearing up with many special services for Advent. And the URC is ahead of the game and has even "booked" a special VIP (who comes down chimneys on Christmas Eve if you are very good), to be present at their Christmas Fayre on 15th November! Other special events are also revealed in this edition of ICN.

But for me the most inspirational article is again the lead article, where we learn of the astonishing achievements of an Ickenham resident who has achieved something no other British person has achieved before - and this despite clear problems which would blight most people's lives!

Read about these stories, and more in this month's ICN by clicking on ‘This Month’s Newsletter’ at the top of the page.
