The Editor's Bit

Before I start with what we’ve got for you this month, an appeal: I won’t be going round the bars with my camera on New Year’s Eve, so I want you to send in pictures that we can use in the next Stun. You can send them to me by e-mail or post them on our Facebook page and I will include as many as possible. You’ll be rewarded by being named as one of our contributors and the fame that goes with it.

Inclement weather, previous commitments and drinking Beaujolais Nouveau with Elly meant I couldn’t make it to many parties last month, not that there were many to get invited to, so this month’s Stun is a bit slimmer than usual. But, what it lacks in pages is more than compensated by the quality of the content. All of our regular pages are here, plus...

Fancy going for a drink on Christmas Day? On page 5, we’ve listed a few bars that will be open, including some with food and others with music. Looking for a New Year’s Eve party to go to? Check out the gig-list on page 10 for our recommendations.

Staying at home? Check out our double Christmas puzzle in the middle pages; there’s a box of chocolates to be won.

Well, that was it for the Noughties; let’s see what the next decade brings us. Enjoy your Stun and I hope you have a great time over Christmas and the New Year.
