Summer 2016

Dear Readers

Messing about on the river…

Most definitely my favourite time of year; longest days, summer solstice, warm evenings and sunsets while so many are heading away from town in traffic. Stay off the motorways! Stay in sight of our Queen’s residence instead. People-watch (and be watched). Get your legs out. Be fit – inside and out!

There’s interactive arts and horses in the Tate. Get more colour in your life; ride the river, get the breeze in you face.

Learn something new; like carving jamon? Drink – a few glasses of well chosen wine. It’s all in this edition. Can’t wait…
