This month we salute two of The Lee’s most treasured institutions: one stands on the Green in all its newly re-discovered glory (see picture of renovated War Memorial); the other is putting his feet up at his new home on the South coast.* Yes, Tony Rigby has left The Lee and inside are tributes to our very own Renaissance Man whose many incarnations will make him hard to replace.

Elsewhere there’s remembrance of summery things past with reports on the Fête, Flower Show and cricket season, and a look ahead to traditional autumn events such as the Harvest Festival and Bonfire Night.

Less conventional – I hesitate to use the term ground-breaking – will be a parachute jump by six brave souls in aid of St John the Baptist Church.

And finally the Newsletter wouldn’t be the Newsletter without mention of those dread words “pot-holes” and “aircraft noise”. Writing in the Letters page, Trish Swain and John Andrews say it’s time to wage a new campaign against them.

We are back to 28 pages this month because of the huge volume of material partly caused by the Newsletter’s non-appearance in August, so apologies to all those whose articles may have been edited.

Please send contributions for next month’s Newsletter as usual to theleenewsletter@googlemail.com, or if in hard copy to Colin Sully at Fairleigh, Swan Bottom, by the 12th September.

* Not strictly true as he is doing all the photos for us this month as usual!
