Harfield Village Feb newsletter header
February is the romantic month of the year – with Valentine’s Day. 
 
Even though it really is just another month, there’s a lot of ‘history’ behind this month of romance and love! The name of February comes from the Latin word “februum” which means purification. Let’s show one another and our fellow community members some kindness (love) during this month, as we should all year round. 
 
This newsletter is filled with interesting articles from our regular contributors, as well as our monthly competition with great prizes from our sponsors. What is more, take a look at the beautiful properties for sale by Norgarb Properties.
