WELCOME to your weekly celebration of all things inspiring in our beautiful part of the world.

We are blessed to live in such a place of peace and tranquility.

Some would argue that the serenity of our area is sometimes too quiet, but the pace of life is what many have been calling for over the past few years.

The pandemic and the cost of living crisis may have caused many people to wonder what is really important in their lives.

Of course, most people will have the same priorities.

OTHER NEWS:

Family, health and finances will always be among the top three concerns and rightly so.

We all know that the current problems the country is going through will impact the vast majority of us.

If they haven’t already, as many of us do.

Fortunately, we have respite in our communities and those around us.

Maybe a community group or maybe a good group of friends who share common interests.

Such activities can make us forget our worries, even if it’s just a distraction over a drink, a meal, a walk, or a quick catch-up.

These little things, these simple pleasures, can mean the world and they are as important today as they ever were.

So get involved and take the initiative and call your friends and family today. You won’t regret seizing the day.
