Welcome to your winter issue of Whitchurch and Llandaff Living Magazine.
We are very excited to be bringing you our 8th Christmas issue of the magazine, since launching in 2008. You may notice some changes and that’s because we have worked hard on creating a new look and ensuring that there is interesting content for everyone. It is also our biggest issue ever at a staggering 48 pages!
Inside this festive issue, you’ll find out how the local community saved Christmas, what the Wales rugby captain enjoys about this time of the year, why residents love our villages at Christmas, as well as a selection of local gifts.
Local author Richard Morgan delves into the history of local place names and we speak to Peter Williams who launched a weekly newpaper in Cardiff in the 1960s. His story takes us from Cardiff to Spain and back again.
We’ve lined up some great competitions for all the family, including tickets to see The Snow Maiden ballet at St David’s Hall and The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe at The Sherman Theatre. As an extra treat, there is a winter warmer spa experience for two to win courtesy of the Village Spa. Be quick and check the closing dates for entries so you don’t miss out!
We are proud to be supporting Velindre Cancer Centre’s fundraising efforts by featuring the official Reindeer Run programme. You can find it on page 7.
We have enjoyed speaking to residents across our villages as well as the local businesses, who through their advertising enable us to produce this magazine free of charge. In return, we ask you to please support the businesses featured in this publication. Please mention that you have seen their adverts in Whitchurch and Llandaff Living magazine and have a look out for any of their promotions!
This is your community magazine so please feel free to write to us about what you think of it, suggestions on anything else you would like included or to send us editorial of your own. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Finally, we want to wish all our readers a very Happy Christmas and New Year. Nadolig Llawen a Blwyddyn Newydd Dda.
Danielle and Patric
