Regretfully Abbtalk’s editor, Ellie Oakley, advised the Abbtalk Steering Group that she must bow to the inevitable in recognising that her time over the next six months must be dedicated to her studies, which will be increasingly demanding as she approaches her final exams in a few months’ time. We wish her every success.


I think we can all appreciate the splendid contribution Ellie Oakley has made to new AbbTalk over the last year. New Abbtalk would not have got where it is today without Ellie. She can be rightfully proud of her contribution to our community over the last year. So on behalf of Abbtalk, its readers and the wider community of Abbotskerswell, I would like to offer her our grateful thanks and appreciation for her expertise and diligence over the last year.

Ann Allen, our new editor, is a resident of Abbotskerswell and has stepped forward to offer her services, which is absolutely fantastic news. Ann will join the Abbtalk Group this month and has had considerable experience in publishing, which is most welcome.
