Welcome to the Five Villages Chronicle.

The latest issue, Autumn 2020, has been delivered to the residents of the Five Villages by our dedicated team of volunteers. Due to the government restrictions in force concerning the coronavirus, copies may also be available for reading in Holywell Library and in some pubs and cafés within the Five Villages area once they re-open. Please do not remove those copies but leave them for others to enjoy.

The cover:  'Dryad’s Saddle' Polyporus squamosus, one of the bracket fungi which grow on Oak, Ash, Elm, Sycamore and other trees. It can grow to a foot across and is apparently ‘edible when young’. Description, Dr Goronwy Wynne. Photo, Melanie Wallis.
