Erratum: – In the ICN edition this month, the August meeting for the Hillingdon Council of Christians and Jews on 15th August is taking place at Northwood Methodist Chuch, Oaklands Gate, Northwood HA4 3AA and not, as shown, at Emmanuel Church. (It is correct on the Forthcoming Events page).
Dear ICN Reader,
Welcome to the August/September edition of the ICN!
With the wonderful Ickenham Festival just behind us, this month we take time to look back at the huge range of activities and events that were put on during our Festival Week. As ever the Festival Committee did a superb job and the local community came together to celebrate what makes Ickenham so special. This year Village Day was held in Milton Court and what a wonderful atmosphere there was. Did you attend? With so many pictures of the Festival, maybe we snapped one of you?
We also take time out to congratulate the winner of the very special Festival Shield – as ever a hugely worthy winner. If you are interested in seeing the Shield – with the engraved names of past winners – it eventually resides in the glass case just inside Ickenham Library.
Elsewhere we report on the sad passing of former longtime Ickenham residents and there is a worthwhile plea from an Ickenham resident. Will you help?
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 October/November ICN edition need to be with the team by 12noon of 10th September 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 email@example.com .
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 firstname.lastname@example.org or on 07913 430989.
