Village Affairs was a magazine covering Weston and the surrounding villages, Walkern being one. It was created and edited by Pam Blackurn from her home in Weston and was published from May 1996 to Winter/Autumn 2007. Pam has very kindly agreed to the posting of these articles. Most of these articles were written by Cecil Beadle and are about Walkern in yesteryear. Cecil was born and lived in Walkern all his life until his death in 2006. He was the village Sage and had a massive collection of photographs and stories of the village which he was always willing to share.
