Note from the Editor – I have to admit to being a bit of a social recluse, but one of the Villagers sent me a link to a “you tube” clip of a new group called “Paper Aeroplanes”, who will be playing at the Royal & Derngate Theatre. I clicked the link, and really loved the music, so I’ve included the link for you  – click here
