Peter Lacey of the South Coast History Society told The Beagle "Our 21st issue of ‘Recollections’ is out now and has been distributed to our many subscribers. It’s also available at bit.ly/Recollections21. We trust you will enjoy reading it."
"This issue will NOT be available in printed form, so we again ask that you forward a copy of the attached to anyone you know who is interested on our local history." " We’re celebrating the 21st issue of ‘Recollections’. Perhaps not entirely as we might have hoped, because this issue is, again,not generally available in print format – so many thousands of our usual supporters are regrettably missing out on our party.
"Some pessimists and detractors predicted that ‘Recollections’ would not survive beyond two or three issues and, I must admit, launching ‘Recollections’ was a gamble, and we were quite prepared to quietly let ‘Recollections’ die if the necessary support for it was not forthcoming. But the support we received from the South Coast community (and elsewhere – indeed, from unexpected places all around the world) was, and continues to be, OVERWHELMING and OVERWHELMINGLY POSITIVE – so here we are, at 21!
"Our challenge now is to produce the next 21 issues – and that, of course, will depend on that widespread community support (especially the vital financial support upon which we rely) continuing – because there are many, many interesting South Coast history-based stories still to be shared.
"At present it looks as though the next printed issue of ‘Recollections’ will be the August-September 2020 edition so, until then, another ‘Recollections on-line’ is likely to be produced for July.
"Please enjoy reading this edition...please share it with others...and, thank you for your greatly-valued support. "
