The current editors of The Whistler have been doing the job for over 23 years and we think it’s time we handed it over to someone else. Jed Novick has lived in West Hill for 6 years and when he heard at the WHCA Christmas Social that we were looking for a new editor he stepped forward. He says he wants to get involved because this area and community is fantastically important to him, now more than ever. So, look out for his first issue as Editor from June and, meanwhile, Sylvia and Colette wish him well and know that The Whistler, 44 years old this year, is going to be in very good hands for the next 44!
In the light of the current situation with the coronavirus COVID-19, WHCA has cancelled its forthcoming events, including the AGM on 28 April and, most likely, the Quiz at the end of May. The local history talk, ‘Beardsley’s Brighton’ was planned for May 12, but is now postponed until October. All of the regular activities in West Hill Hall have also been suspended for the time being.
With very many thanks to our March Quiz Setter, Sue Williams, we held a very successful Quiz on Zoom on 31 March at 8pm with many of our regular participants that we usually see at West Hill Hall on the last Tuesday of the month. Next Quiz via Zoom will be on 28 April.
