Vale Life: Celebrating Spring

How are you enjoying springtime so far? We’re loving the daffodils, dumping the heavy jumpers and the heat of the sun in our bones. Bliss!

With all the madness surrounding us at the moment, never has it been more important to sort out our future finances, but where do you start?

We’ve always said that people buy from people and, if we had to put our finances in anyone’s hands, then we’d feel confident with Gretchen who owns Magenta Finance in Bridgend. She’s ‘normal’ and helps take the fear out of personal finance. Gretchen is our cover star for Spring. You can read more about Gretchen’s life on pages 10 to 13.

Now that we’ve been able to travel more freely, we’ve gone to town, and a few cities, on our travels these last few months. Check out our ‘Great Northern Run’ features on Crewe Hall, Slaley Hall and Middlethorpe Hall and Spa on pages 94 to 97, Abergwaun Hotel, Pembrokeshire on pages 99 to 101.

Each experience has something to suit all interests and budgets. We’ve got our usual round-up of restaurants, boutiques and gift shops for you to enjoy.

If you’re looking for a gift for that special occasion, or just to treat yourself, then check out our My Favourite Things (pages 24 and 25) and Man Cave on pages 104 and 105.

Mark’s Man Cave feature is extremely popular.

We’re already busy working on our summer issue. If you’d like to showcase your offering to the whole of The Vale of Glamorgan, then please get in touch. We’d love to help you shine!

Until next time…
