Letter from the Editor: Two anniversaries were missed recently. Last month was the 100th edition of this magazine printed by Thurston’s, and in May 2011, we had the ten year anniversary of the first edition of Talk of the Town. My mind was on other matters. This month promises to be eventful for Talk of the Town. On November 5th there is my fundraising recital with a prize draw run by Saltburn Rotary Club (see pages 20 and 52). Tickets are on sale in Real Meals and Jackie’s Saverstore. There will be over fifty prizes with £100 cash first prize. Please buy tickets: it will help support the magazine. See page 15 for an article calling for the setting up of ‘Friends of Talk of the Town’ to secure the magazine’s future as a vital part of the Saltburn community. Love, Ian.

Remembrance Sunday: Saltburn’s annual service will be held at the Milton Street Methodist Church on Sunday, 13th November at 10am, followed by a procession to the war memorial for 11am.

Emmanuel Church Hall Table Top and Collectors’ Sale: We have our next Table Top and Collectors Sale at the Emmanuel Church Hall on 5th and 19th November, and the 3rd and 17th December. From 10am till 4pm. With over 26 stall holders, selling lots of bric-a-brac, books, toys, baby goods and all sorts of collectables, home made produce and a bit of crafts, there is something for everyone. Home made refreshments and light lunches are on sale all day. We are still open even though the building work is going on. We are still able to carry on doing our Table Top Sales as it only affects the outside of the building, and we will continue as long as we need to raise funds. Despite some false rumours about the hall, we are still here serving our community. I would also like to thank every one who has supported us. The Table Top Sales have made over £15,000 for the echo church hall building fund. For more information contact Denise Marshall on 07929 589538.

WI Report: The Ladies WI was held in the Methodist Chapel on Thursday, 13th October. Our speaker was Mrs Dunning, who spoke to us about Zoë’s Place and what a remarkable place it is. Also, what wonderful work it does for disabled children and giving respite to parents. I expect like me, you have charities that you support, but if you want a local one this would be ideal. Our ladies collected thirty shoe boxes of small gifts for our troops in Afghanistan. These will wing their way to our lads and lasses for Christmas. They too do a sterling job. I hope they will enjoy what Santa gives them.
