Welcome to the September/October edition of The Bradgate Magazine.
After a few issues on ice, due to the pandemic, we’re back – and first may we start out by hoping that all our readers stayed safe and well during this time, and secondly, can we take this opportunity to thank all of our fantastic advertisers and editorial providers, existing and new, for supporting us with our production, without them, you literally wouldn’t be holding this magazine today!
For this edition we look to a new dawn of sorts – life as we know it, isn’t the same, and may never strictly be the same again for some, but we solider on and it’s great to see so many of our local business and service providers, charities and groups back on good form, despite the adaptations they have had to and will need to continue making.
Take Charity Link’s 3 Peaks Challenge for example, previously an award-winning 16-mile run around the peaks of Old John in Bradgate Park, Beacon Hill and Bardon Hill, participants are now asked to complete their own run between the 12th and 27th September; or the YES Project which has introduced Zoom and virtual group working sessions, in a similar vein to the GREAT project (Getting Ready for Employment And Training) but ultimately these organisations are making it happen, despite the challenges, so they may continue supporting their causes and patrons and for that I applaud them.
So, why not pop the kettle on, put your feet up and take a moment to see what your wonderful community has been doing, and will be doing, to make us all proud this September and coming October.
QUOTE OF THE MONTH: “Hope is being able to see that there is light despite all of the darkness.”
