Rhiwbina Living Summer

Summer is upon us and we can finally spend more time enjoying the great outdoors. Our summer issue therefore focuses on how to make the most of the warmer weather and time outside.

People in Rhiwbina love their gardens and so as well as our usual helpful instalment from Kevin Revell focusing on growing summer herbs, we visited four Rhiwbina gardens to find out what makes them unique. It was a joy to talk to the owners and appreciate the outdoor spaces they had created (as well as enjoy some freshly-baked banana muffins!).

If you’re looking for some inspiration on how to improve your garden space, our Outdoor Living feature showcases some fabulous local products designed to help you create the perfect summer sanctuary at home.

Summer is the perfect opportunity for visiting places in the surrounding areas, so we’ve put together a useful guide to some of the most beautiful places to picnic in Cardiff and the Vale. Sometimes, it can be hard to be inspired for ideas on where to take the kids over the holidays, so we asked the children of Rhiwbina to tell us where they like to go and why – and so a helpful guide on local places has been created!

People are at the very heart of our community and we have interviewed some inspirational people for this issue.

Rhys Griffiths is a Whitchurch fireman and a former professional footballer. This year, he’s published his very first children’s book which was inspired by his late grandfather. He tells us how he came to be a published author.

Leanne Hugglestone is another local inspiration who recounts her story about how the deepest challenges in her life led to her current life-changing happiness.

Our history feature was informatively written by Rhiwbina resident Peter Lewis, a former RAF pilot who recalls his daring raids flying Hawker Hunters.

Here in Rhiwbina, we love our pets and we interviewed a very special four-legged superstar from Rhiwbina about her career in the limelight!

We have two fantastic pairs of competition tickets up for grabs so be sure to check those out and you may be on your way to see Van Morrison in concert or going to the thrilling Speedway.

With BBQ season upon us, we present some delicious recipe ideas and finally, we celebrate summer with our light-hearted guide to what makes summers in Rhiwbina special.
