Spring has finally arrived and we welcome warmer weather with our first issue of Rhiwbina Living of the year.
We’ve given this issue a theme of wellbeing and happiness – which is so important for a good life and more within our control than we realise. We’ve packed lots around this theme into the magazine to help inspire you to take positive steps towards wellbeing.
We start with our youngest members of the community where local children explain what happiness means to them.
If you’re looking for inspiration, or a change of direction in life, our interview with Dilys Price will undoubtedly help motivate you to go after your goals. She has dedicated her life to helping others and tells us how a single skydive led to the bravery she needed to make her dreams a reality.
Our health is our wealth and we’ve got several features that can help you look after both your mental and physical wellbeing. We present some great juicing recipes to nourish you and a feature on how to promote happiness and wellbeing and reduce distress.
For the last month, we’ve been running an online photo competition for children around the theme of happiness. The competition was kindly judged by Sarah Barnes Photography and we announce winners and those highly commended.
In May, Rhiwbina will be the venue for Rachel’s Day, which takes place in memory of Rachel Day. Rachel lost her life to sepsis in 2017 and her family tell us about the inspirational work that they are doing to raise awareness of this life-threatening condition.
We hear from our local schools and for the first time, we’ve found out about the amazing work that goes on up at Greenhill Special School.
Geocaching is a pastime that encourages people to make the most of the outdoors and can be done either individually or in groups for treasure-hunting style fun. We present the phenomenon and the benefits to wellbeing.
We’ve got three great competitions from our advertisers in this issue. You can win a Pamper Day for two at the Village Hotel and there’s also a pair of tickets up for grabs to go to this year’s RHS Flower Show in Cardiff. You can also win a Smeg food blender, courtesy of Budd Electricals.
Once again, we’d like to thank our wonderful advertisers so please support them where you can.
If you have any ideas for contributions for summer we would love to hear from you!
