Focus Editions: July 2019

We are getting ready for Summer. How about you? Yes, I know what you’re thinking…this weather! But amongst the spells of showers (I prefer the word as opposed to ‘apocalyptic downpour’) the sun will shine and, when it does, our area is one of the best places on earth to find yourself!

My family is staying pretty much where we are this Summer, apart from the occasional jaunt in the caravan. Quite honestly I find that going abroad can be so head-spinningly expensive that it isn’t worth it…especially when there’s so much going on where we live.

This Summer is our last one with a pre-schooler. Our daughter starts reception in September so I feel as though the weeks before that happens need to count.

Lucky us, there are festivals and concerts and all manner of summery events taking place. Just check out our events calendar on pages 22(Abergavenny)/15 (Crickhowell & Brecon).

I hope you enjoy this month’s read – it’s a chocker magazine this month!

When I decided that a good feature for this month’s magazine would be ‘Colour’, I didn’t really consider the number of ways the theme could be interpreted, and I’m excited by the spectrum of articles we’ve been able to put together for you. I do hope you enjoy them. This month is a busy one. […]

Nowadays, and probably because I’m now in my early forties, I find myself more ready to embrace change and to […]
