October – November 2019



This issue of the Wychwood magazine really does have something for everyone. As autumn arrives with its shorter evenings, there is a feast of reading provided by a generous group of writers. The article reflecting on the glories of autumn is as good a place as anywhere to start; every reader can relate to its observations. Or, if something thoroughly local is needed, how about the Shipton Fair including a fine array of photos recording a memorable day? Or maybe the award winning Wychwood Singers? Or, for something completely different, read about Cath Smith’s exertions in the Ride London event.
