The start of the season

October is almost upon us and the sun's warmth is slowly fading. The change in seasons is gradual but those summer visitors have already left for warmer climes and the flights of housemartins at home have been replaced by the soundtrack of cock pheasants calling out across the valley. This is a time for looking forward, with the delights of the sporting field ahead, whether on a touchline or peg, it is good to be outside and enjoy the move from long summer days to shortening times in the field and longer evenings by the fire. Many will have sat their eleven plus exams today and I wish them well. This is an important morning for those still so young. Otherwise, it is business as usual in Salisbury, with some late September sun and a busy Saturday. We are launching some lovely houses over the coming weeks and I always look forward to this time of year. Autumn combines the milder temperatures of summer but its end signals the festivities of Christmas, which is a popular time for a move to a new home. Winter woollies are not yet unpacked but everything from hockey sticks to gumboots are dusted off and put to good use. My dogs, too adore this time of year, as they get to use those skills they have been practicing and do what they were born to. Matthew Hallett Winkworth Salisbury
