December Distribution - Important Message

Owing to a close family bereavement, we will be unable to complete the distribution of Creuse News ourselves this month.

A wonderful bunch of Creuesois friends have rallied together and will make sure that the magazine still gets out to all the major stockists.

For those a little off the beaten track, we apologise and hope that you will understand why there will be very few small village drop off's in the NE, SE and SW, and would ask you to pick up your copies from the major outlets if you can.

Our apologies for the inconvenience

Distribution du mois de décembre - message important

A cause d'un problème familiale, nous ne seront pas capables d'effectuer la distribution du Creuse News par nous-mêmes ce mois ci.

Un magnifique groupe d'amis creusois se sont mis ensemble et ont organisé la distribution du magazine, aux endroits de collection les plus grandes.

Pour ceux qui sont vraiment au cœur de la campagne creusoise, nous sommes désolé et nous espérons que vous comprendrions qu'il va y avoir quelques petits villages dans de nord-est, sud-est et sud-ouest qui n'auront pas de copies, et nous vous demandons de récupérer vos copies aux endroits de collections majeurs.

Nous sommes désolés pour l'inconvénient.

Welcome to the Christmas edition of the new Creuse News.

Dear readers and advertisers,

May I take this opportunity to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. I would like to thank all the kind people who have so readily and warmly welcomed us into the wonderful community of the Creuse since August this year.

Sometime in 2015 we hope to be living here too, and we won’t forget those who have supported us, especially when it comes to choosing tradesmen, and providers of all the goods and services we will need for our new house and new Creusois life.

In the meantime, wrap up warm, toast up your fires and enjoy this Christmassy edition of Creuse News, and remember there is NO January edition – the next issue of CN will be distributed from February 15 2015.

But don’t forget to keep checking our Facebook page (pop ‘Creuse News’ into the Facebook search bar) as we update information and add new events listings on a daily basis.

Seasons greetings to all of you.
