WELCOME TO SPRING Spring is in the air, and at Living


Towers we like to celebrate the end of the cold dark winter by thinking about things to do in the fresh air – for example, our special feature on page 18 with ideas to keep the kids busy during the Easter holidays. Also on the spring theme we look at how and when to plant veggies in your garden, where to go bird-watching across the district and how to get stuck into spring cleaning! It’ll certainly keep you busy – we hope you enjoy it.
