Printed by Gipping Press / gippingpress.co.uk Ufford PUNCH & Ufford PUNCHLINE TM registered Hey, you! Sitting here preparing this edition of PUNCH for the printers, I’m feeling like one of those DJs running a late night show on an old Midwestern FM radio station. I have no idea who is tuned in out there, or what they’re thinking. PUNCH keeps appearing on your doorstep every month; maybe you read it diligently, just flick through the adverts, or use it to line the parrot cage. I don’t know. So this month, I’m asking for a little feedback. What do you like about the magazine? What don’t you like? What’s missing? Would you miss it ? How can we improve? Would your parrot prefer more absorbent paper? Any suggestions, bright ideas or even brutal honesty would be greatly appreciated. If you wanted to help writ- ing or editing or taking pictures, that would be wonderful - someone with Win- dows/MS Publisher experience or design skills would be highly appreciated. You can email us at temp@uffordpunch.org.uk , or reach me by note or mail at Lime Cottage in Church Lane (IP13 6DS). Oh, I forgot to say Happy New Year. And to see us through to the midnight hour, here’s something from Steely Dan. Kevin, Co-Editor Lauren Elizabeth On page 26 we are publishing the winning and second place entries from the PUNCH/Art Festival children’s short story competition, written by Lauren Barrett and Elizabeth Yardy. Congratulations to them and thanks to all those who en- tered! Unfortunately the adult competition only produced two entries, one of which was ineligible as it was entered anonymously. We have therefore decided not to award a prize in this category. But thank you so much to the two writers who did support the competition.
