Happy New Year to one and all

What a Christmas! Like many of you I've certainly done too much good living over December, so now is certainly the time to get on the old walking boots and get out there....I don't think I'm at the running shoe stage quite yet but good luck to those of you that are!

On behalf of everyone at the magazine, may I be one of the first to welcome you to 2017, and I hope it will be an excellent year for us all. 2016 was a great year with plenty to enjoy both locally and further afield. Many thanks once again for those of you came along to our 25th Anniversary party in Uppermill in November. It was great to see some familiar old faces, as well as some new ones too. We would also like to thanks the Saddleworth Museum for allowing us to host the event without forgetting Andy Watson at BED for providing us some plenty of mouthwatering canapes....Cheers guys!

Our hearts go out to all those affected by the recent floods, and now the better weather has returned (for now), we're hoping this is going to be a great year for the area, especially with all the many events planned throughout the year in and around this beautiful part of the country.

As always, we have plenty of local stories and features inside for you to read and enjoy...including a number of FREE to enter competitions with some excellent prizes up for grabs. So get involved as you have to be in it to win it this 2017!

We would like to welcome all our new advertisers to the magazine, and we hope that by working with us you will see the benefits of featuring in our glossy publication, and of course all our existing advertisers for their valued custom! Finally we would like to thank all the people who make this magazine what it is today...YOU....Our darling readers.

Please remember, if you belong to charity, sports club or are involved in any kind of fund raising activity, then please do give us a call or send us an email. We will be only too happy to help if we can.
