HAPPY BIRTHDAY to walkington-life – yes five years old today. Can you believe it, five years ago, on the 8th December 2014, the blog was introduced to the village and the world, and what a successful fifth year it’s been. We’ve tried to report on, as well as promote, the events happening in the village, which may have touched the lives of many of us, and in doing so, we’ve had lots of fun along the way. Some of our posts have looked back to earlier times in Walkington and hopefully these shed light on how the village has developed and who we are today.
I would like send a huge thank you to all of the villagers who have made a contribution to the success of the blog by writing posts, making comments, sending in recipes and making us all laugh with the “Funny But True” stories. Thanks to you all! And thanks to our readers who have been with us for the last five years. I have been referred to by several people in the village as ‘the blogman’ which I take as being a compliment. From modest beginnings in December 2014, the blog has grown, and has become established as a useful village information and entertainment site, regularly enjoyed by many villagers.
