• Autumn 2019

    Dear Readers

    Autumn winds promise change

    “It is health that is real wealth, not pieces of gold and silver,” Gandhi famously said. Now more than ever mental and physical health is becoming increasingly important to us all. The stresses of normal daily life can too often bring on anxieties and run our bodies into the ground, so we've been talking with a mix of health and well-being specialists who live and operate around our community.

    On a bigger scale, the health of the environment is coming into urgent focus. This year's Extinction Rebellion in the capital and the devastation to the Amazon rainforests have been more than a wake up call for us all.

    Thankfully we can always find some solace in culture and art so abundant around us, where often issues and solutions are discussed on stage or the gallery walls.

    These winds of change are bringing with them the beginning of a new academic year, a fresh start and an end to austerity with a general election, enterprising businesses opening and new homes and communities being developed.

    We are on the verge of a new beginnings, with the opportunity for fresh and enlightened views.

    Yours
