Welcome; Edition 119 Out Now!

Dear Readers,

Well, here we are in August already. Before we know it, it will be time to dust off the Christmas decorations and start the Christmas shopping ordeal. My mother always says, “If you were smart Cherrie, you would start your Christmas shopping now. Not only is it done and dusted, but you can make the most of the mid-year sales”. Let it be known right now, I am not smart in this regard, I am the fool that is madly running around Christmas Eve, trying to get my shopping done. So readers, be smart, start your Christmas shopping now! There are some fantastic local products out and about if you want something unique and meaningful, I suggest attending the Gem Fest on the 12th & 13th of September. They have some stunning pieces and I am sure it will be a fantastic day.

Next edition we will be celebrating Senior’s week! From Saturday 15 – Sunday 23 August 2020. This year more than ever people need something to celebrate, in the safest way possible. As Covid-19 regulations have seen many older people in self-isolation, never has it been more important to ensure people remain connected and don’t become segregated. So let’s get out there and make this a week of celebrating Senior’s, all they have achieved and the huge contribution they bring to our community!

Enjoy this edition our lovely readers and as always……

Take Care, Stay Safe,

-Cherrie
