Hello!

This is Your Elmbridge

I’m celebrating this month as it is one year since I became editor of Your Elmbridge magazine! I hope you enjoy reading the magazine each month as much as I enjoy putting it together for you.

Whilst I sit here with my celebratory slice of cake and glass of bubbly, let me tell you what this issue has for you:

Two fabulous competitions; you could win two tickets to Oatfest 2017 on 6/7 October, or a kids Archery Tag® Party. See page 16 for details of how to enter, but be quick as you don’t want to miss the closing dates!

Interesting articles from local contributors, including: The Rise of the Selfie, by photographer Alan Stretton (p. 6). Our mental wellbeing columnist Marcelle Crinean talks about the Parable of the Chinese Farmer (p. 12). And local garden designer Karen Holley gives advice on bulb planting now for a beautiful spring garden (p. 28).

There are two simple and tasty autumn recipes (p. 18) that the whole family should enjoy eating, and if you have kids at home for half-term they can enjoy making too! Our Halloween activities will also keep the kids (and adults!) entertained at home (p. 36).

Don’t miss our What’s On section (p. 8)  which lists many of the events and activities happening in the local area this month.

And finally, don’t forget the magazine contains details of lots of local businesses who can help you with just about anything from chimney sweeping to building your dream home!

Happy Halloween!

Debbie
