In this edition, from Katy...

Welcome to the sunny June edition of The Villages Mag! 

This month, we're rolling out a buffet of stories, starting with a cosy sit-down at The Stove Yard. Join me as I delve into the warm world of log burners and discover the delights of outdoor pizza ovens with one of our cherished local gems. Then, I catch up with Martin from The George and Dragon—a true gentleman I've been eager to interview since I began steering this magazine in 2017. It's all change at The George: they've welcomed a new head chef, rolled out a tempting summer and brunch menu, and, the cherry on top, launched afternoon teas! 

This issue isn't just about new beginnings and tasty menus. We're also sharing more personal journeys. 

Following my last editorial about my challenges with alcohol, your overwhelming support has been nothing short of heart-warming. While I'm not ready to delve deep into this subject just yet, it's important to shine a light on the support available. We feature an ad on page  39 for Cheshire East's Change, Live, Grow service—a beacon for anyone navigating similar struggles. Remember, reaching out is a brave first step toward healing.

Your feedback continues to fuel our content and fortify our village connections. As you flip through these pages, we hope you're inspired to try new things, support our local heroes, and tap into the community resources that make our village special.

Enjoy every page of our June issue—may it add a little extra sunshine to your day!

And, finally don't forget to mark your calendars for the Holmes Chapel Summer Celebration weekend, we'll see you there!
