Welcome to the sunshine! It’s beautifully hot whilst we put this edition to bed. The sunshine is a glimmer of hope following incidents of Manchester. We join the rest of the country and unite in our support to all the families involved. We extend thanks to all the emergency services and those who helped, and will continue to do so, over the coming months. This gives anyone a reason to be thankful.

Our local elections saw a radical change to the make-up of the town council where IDEAL’ Bradford, the new Independent Group, secured 10 out of the 12 seats, leaving just 2 for the Liberal Democrats. We welcome David Garwood, our new Mayor and are encouraged by his positive plans. There are, of course more elections to follow.

If you are looking for something summery to do with the family, then our What’s On and Highlight section will give you some inspiration. A good one not to miss is the Sculpture Garden 24-26 July. Get yourself into the woods for creative workshops for grownups in Bath, try Bowls or Qi Gong, plus many more.

A Local Life got up close with Martin Clunes, OBE, as he officially opened Julia’s House Children’s Hospice in Devizes on 6th May. The centre is purpose built to provide care and support to children and their families with a life-limiting or life-threatening condition.

In Food & Drink, we have veg inspiration, barbeque heaven and celebration of Venison so there really is something to suit all tastes.

In our next edition, in keeping with support of all things independent, we have a ‘Shambles’ special feature. This will celebrate the history and the street that it is today. Also not forgetting everything BoA – we are really looking forward to the BoA Arts festival in September.

So, grab something cold and enjoy the weather! We look forward to seeing you next issue.
