Read Whitchurch and Llandaff Living Spring issue here


Spring has finally arrived and we welcome warmer weather with our first publication 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.

You may have seen Mathew Pritchard on TV over the last few months. He’s been making the case for a vegan lifestyle and we were lucky enough to catch up with him. He spoke about how he has turned his life around with diet and fitness.

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 the foods that heal our body, some great juicing recipes to nourish you and a feature on how to promote happiness and wellbeing and reduce distress.

Cardiff is home to many places of beauty where we can go for some quiet reflection, so we’ve highlighted some of the local spots to visit when we feel we need to get back to nature.

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.

Change is an inevitable part of life and staff at BBC Wales Broadcasting House in Llandaff will start packing up their desks and moving to the city centre later this year. We take a look back at the history of the iconic building, and its place within the history of BBC Wales Cymru before it disappears forever.

We’ve got two great competitions from our advertisers. You can win a Pamper Day for two at the Village Hotel, Coryton and there’s also a Family Ticket up for grabs to see children’s favourite Zog at St. David’s Hall.

Once again, we’d like to thank our wonderful advertisers and we’d encourage you to use their services.

See you in early summer!
