Dear ICN Reader,


Welcome to the June/July edition of the ICN!
This month we look forward to the upcoming Ickenham Festival, with all the many events and activities around Ickenham during the Festival week, some of which are specifically highlighted inside this edition.  Echoing the lead article, Felicity focuses her article this edition on the recent renovation of the Swakeleys Tomb, which rests in St Giles’ Churchyard.  This vital renovation has secured what is a small – but key – part of Ickenham’s local history.  However, the costs were significant and Felicity calls for donations to help offset these costs.  Could you donate?

Elsewhere we look back at the Spring Horticultural Show with all the very impressive entries.  And keeping with the horticultual theme, can you answer the question posed about the trees in the picture taken by Phil Lane?

We also feature reports from members of the wider Ickenham community about recent events and trips in their lives.

Find out more about all these items, and everything else in this month’s edition, by clicking on ‘Current Issue’ at the top of the page.

Submissions for the August/September ICN edition need to be with the team by 12noon of 10th July 2018 at the latest please.  All items are subject to editorial review.

PLEASE NOTE – All forthcoming events and meeting details now can only be accepted via the website.  After moderation, they will automatically appear on the website and will then be added into the relevant hard copy ICN with no further input from the clubs and societies.  We hope this is an exciting improvement allowing more events to be publicised around Ickenham at short notice and independently of the ICN deadlines.  If you are having problems, pleased do get in touch with a member of the team.  Unfortunately the forms seems to be showing the date in the US format of MM/DD/YYYY rather than the UK format of DD/MM/YYYY.  Please note that this is to do with the settings on individual computers and not the ICN website but that all dates will be shown on the website in the correct format.

Edwin Lee is also stepping down this year from his role as advertising manager.  His role has not been replaced, so if you want to put something back into the community, do get in touch by contacting Felicity on her new email address rector@stgileschurch.co.uk .  
In addition, I will be stepping down as Editor at the end of this year so if you would like to take over as Editor, please do get in touch too.  For the time being, if you are interested in advertising in the ICN, or have any advertising related queries at all, please contact Edwin Lee at advertising@ickenhamchurchnews.co.uk or on 07913 430989.
