Spring has finally arrived after what seems like an unending winter. To celebrate the changing of the seasons and the welcome of warm weather and sunny days, we have put together a truly bright and uplifting issue.
We all love our homes in North Cardiff and Spring is traditionally a time when we pack away the clutter from Winter and look to spruce up our homes and gardens. With this in mind, we have put together several features focused on both indoor and outdoor living spaces and how to make the most of them this season.
Our interiors feature showcases some sensational products from our local retailers, designed to help freshen up our living spaces and cast away any remnants of Winter. It’s also a fantastic opportunity to shop local and make the most of the expertise of our business owners who are passionate about what they do.
As the sun starts to show itself, Kevin Revell gives us advice and top tips on how to prepare our garden to bring the seasonal splash of colour back to our green spaces. If upcycling is your thing, we show you how to use everyday items to transform your outdoor space into something a little different.
Our interview is with David Mahoney from Only Men Aloud, who went to school in Llandaff and who has just returned from New York where he was working with Julie Andrews and Roger Daltrey. He talks to us about his rise to fame and why he calls Cardiff home.
We hear from one local blogger who suffers from bipolar disorder. She openly discusses the challenges she faces and how she manages to cope with the illness and be a mother on a day to day basis. Her story is inspiring and honest, and will hopefully encourage more people to talk about mental health issues.
With a celebration planned for June in Cardiff to mark 100 years of women getting the vote, we chart the rise of the historic Suffrage movement and the local ladies who were instrumental in effecting change.
For our younger readers, editor and award-winning writer Patric Morgan shares his knowledge on how to successfully write short stories.
With a historical walk around our city centre, a guide to motoring around North Cardiff and two fantastic competitions, there is plenty to read and enjoy.
