Its July and I don’t know about you but I certainly found June a little strange, businesses slowly beginning to open and return to the ‘new normal’ people beginning to be a little more willing to actually hold a conversation with you, and of course we all got to visit those loved ones we hadn’t seen for a while. Its good to see some sort of routine coming back into our lives but I guess as we drive on into the next phase it would be wrong of me not to say ‘please be careful and take it easy.. don’t be in a rush to undo all the good, keep the guidelines in your head as you go about things but establish a routine that involves doing things again, this is not going away so we have to learn to live alongside it and if we all take a little responsibility we can do this.
We have lots for you to read this month, some great people had a chat with Marisa and she has lots to tell us, speaking of Marisa we must take a moment to remember her beautiful Nana who left this world in the last few weeks, thinking of all the family at this sad time RIP.
We are all thinking about that break away after been locked indoors for so long, so we have compiled some suggestions for you, we have so much to offer in this great county it really is worth tripping around and taking things in.
As always we have some wonderful advertisers included with the offers and services they have this month, and I want to take this opportunity to thank our advertisers who support me on a regular basis, you really are the back bone to our existence and we appreciate the support you give us, we hear many people say it over and over on our daily journey.. ‘support local’ ‘support your own’ but to those of you who practice it and support us each month we say thank you.
Many people have asked to me over the past few weeks ‘ where do you distribute the magazine now all the hair and beauty and hotels are closed?’ so I guess I just want to clear up the myth that we are only delivered to these establishments, yes we deliver to them and we have missed them over the past few months, but we also deliver to over 300 newsagents, supermarkets and independent retailers all over the county on the first week of each month, so don’t fear you can get your monthly fix of Connect in all good shops around the county but be quick as we are snapped up very quickly.
So go and enjoy this months issue hopefully in a little bit of sunshine, we look forward to doing it all over again next month.
Stay safe and mind each other
