Warcop author goes to Milan

Quite an interesting experience this week for a Warcopian. I've been to Milan to launch a book at the Fibre To The Home conference.

A very surprising relief was bumping into Tom Woof from Kirkby Stephen at the hotel reception and feeling a little less out of my depth 30 minutes into Italy!

The conference was enormous - over 3000 delegates - and although this is not my first time there, it is always somewhat difficult to find your feet.

Warcop Exchange 12th Feb

Don't forget Warcop Exchange on Saturday between 10am and 12 in the Village Hall.

Not only can you find out about local services, buy eggs and local products, get your copy of the Herald, but this time there will also be Ian Baker from the Energy Saving Trust, who will be bringing along his very high tech driving simulator to teach you how to drive your vehicle more effieciently and save you money on your fule bill.

Dean Raine will also be there to tell you about the new homeshare scheme. Look out for the leaflets coming through your door. This is a great little event ran by volunteers from your parish so come along and have a cuppa and a chat.
