newlsetters From the Editor
By Peter Archer

It is only as I sit down to write this month’s editorial that the full significance of this being the 100th edition of the Newsletter really begins to dawn. In the 10 years since the first issue it appears to have flourished, in no small part due to our loyal advertisers and to the many of you who write articles, thereby demonstrating the depth of community spirit that is such a feature of life in The Lee. Keep on writing as it is your contributions which will ensure continuing success over the next 10 years.

The anniversary is being marked by the publication of a 36-page colour booklet, A History of The Lee The story of a special Chiltern Parish’, which the Editorial Team hopes will be bought by all our readers!

During the year the overriding topic of the Newsletters has been the threat of HS2 and, irrespective of the eventual outcome, it has proved how strongly we treasure our environment. The Government’s decision is awaited as we go to press.

Turning now to happier thoughts, we have much to look forward to this month with a variety of Christmas concerts and festivities. As for next year, there will doubtless be much to concern and hopefully entertain us. In the meantime, all on the Newsletter team wish you a very happy Christmas.
The next edition will be in February and Viv Robins will take on the role of editor. Please send your contributions to Viv at theleenewsletter@googlemail.com or hard copy to Crocketts, Lee Common by 12th January.
