One hundred years ago this summer, Winston Churchill took a seaside cottage for his family at Overstrand near Cromer on England's east coast - Pear Tree Cottage, just across the lawn from Beehive Cottage, where his brother Jack's family vacationed. The Churchills' idyllic summer of 1914 ended on August 4 with Britain's declaration of war against Germany and the commencement of World War One. Winston Churchill nevertheless remarked about that vanished summer: "It is a very happy, sunlit picture in my mind's eye."
We trust your summer of 2014 also constituted a very happy sunlit picture. We welcome you back with news of two great forthcoming events.
