Editor's Note: We also understand that the Councilhave discussed plans to present commemorative mugs to the Children in the town and also make presentations to anyone who is 60 this year. So far the Council are only aware of two people who fall into this category, so if you know of anyone please contact the Council as soon as possible. The Moor Management committee are also making some plans for an evening event on the Moor (see above), and the gates at either end of the Jubilee footpath are going to be replaced in honour of the Queens Jubilee. It is hoped these will be in place for the Jubilee weekend
