Highlights from Issue 20:

Festive fun of bygone days
The perfect Christmas Day! Roast turkey with all the trimmings and Christmas pud, followed by a nice snooze.

What's that? The theatre is closed on Christmas Day?
Ah, but this is 1917 and the town is alive with merriment as residents and visitors make the most of the festivities.
