Who, what, when, where, why?
By Geoff Hodgkinson, Co-Editor

January 1, 2009: At last something positive as Hatherleigh Walruses once again did silly things in the River Lew on New Year's Day. We were tempted to use the headline 'conflagrate, conflagrate' but we thought better of it. Perhaps 'levitate, levitate' would be more appropriate? About 20 of the bonkers Walrus crew ended up in the river on a very cold day that ensured safety officers had to emphasise the responsibilities quite strongly. All went well however, and the world premiere of 'Dr. Whom' was enacted successfully using the traditional methods based on huge silliness. The Cidermen (you need to know some cricket to understand that one) rattled their sabres and Town Crier Ros bellowed the 5 minute count down as usual. This pair of Daleks found their way into the script. It's surprising what happens when everyone else goes back for a warming shower at the cricket club. You only have to believe! Good causes such as the Cricket Club, the Football Club, the Scouts and the proposed Island Park Play Area will receive donations from the afternoon's craziness.

PS: several people wondered if the pic is a super-imposition - it's not, it's real. As we said above - you just have to believe!
