How can we almost halfway through the year so soon. May is here and we are getting ready for summer sunshine.

Covering both Hampshire and Wiltshire we aim to make our magazines both regional and relevant. Our features and writers are relevant to the counties, which we serve. Last months new feature ‘Artistic Voices’ has been well received and we continue this month with Salisbury inspired painter, Louise Luton.

I chat to Hampshire based actress, Sarah Parish, star of Broadchurch and the hilarious W1A. She is founder of the Murray Parish Trust she has launched a Ginormous Teddy Bears Picnic to raise money for a children’s trauma unit in Southampton. This month I taste the meaty meals of cricketer, Ian Botham’s Brasserie Beefy’s. In an attempt to burn some of it off I have been planking, following James Kennedy’s ab crunching tips to try and get a six-pack in time for summer. Let’s just say the road to a six-pack is a long one! Perhaps I should aim for the summer of 2020 instead. I hope you enjoy the magic of May and marvel at the imagination of children with Becky Twigg in her gorgeous piece on Outdoor Adventure.

We are incredibly lucky to work with the region’s best schools and gain insight into the exciting initiatives and activities each offers their students.

Clive Marriott from Salisbury Cathedral School chats about how the 900 year old school, now merged with Leaden Hall, School provides a stimulating learning environment in Grade One Listed buildings, within stunning grounds. The School offers pupils, their families and staff a spiritual awareness, helping them to acknowledge the deeper meanings of life.

I trained with England Rugby 7s at Twickenham and we discussed the importance of the psychology of sport and how it’s improved their teamwork. The UR7s Junior Championships is back for its 5th installment and it’s promising to be it’s biggest and best yet! The Basingstoke based tournament will welcome upwards of 70 junior teams ranging from u13-u17. There is still time to enter.

I’d love to hear from you so don’t forget to drop me an email:

Enjoy the May edition of our magazine.

Best wishes, Clare
