Today at noon, I found myself at White Waltham Airfield in Berkshire, preparing for take-off during an introductory flying lesson.

This lunchtime, I was pleased to join in with the Maidenhead Fundrun, organised by the local branch of the Lions Club. Truly, it put the fun into fundraising. I hope we will be able to try beating our team’s 66 laps next September.
Tomorrow, the latest edition of the St Luke’s Church magazine, InSpire, will hit newsstands across the, erm, church. As editor, I’m enormously grateful to all of our contributors.
