Welcome to the December edition of the Forest Edge Gazette.
Christmas is nearly upon us and everywhere is looking so Christmassy with lots of local events to help with Christmas cheer (page 28-29) including lots of charity events too. It is good for us all to remember that Christmas is not always a wonderful time for those that find themselves on hard times. Please do support these causes if you can as it helps local community groups to continue the worthwhile work they do. I wonder what will be this year’s Christmas No 1 this year…… for a bit of fun in our Christmas feature we’ve added a Christmas Music Quiz on pages 18-19, why not see what Christmas hits you can remember with a glass of mulled wine and a mince pie. Good Luck!
In this issue we cover Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance seek to boost volunteer numbers, Local grant-makers get two new minibuses on the road for Minstead Trust and all our usual articles. Plus Snozone brings snowsports back to Basingstoke, so if you fancy a family day out check out all the information on page 14.
We are always happy to connect with local people whether it be Community or Education news, Local Events or Charity Fundraisers or whether you are a local business looking to discuss their marketing strategy. Please do contact us to discuss your advertising needs and how your local free community magazine can help you, email linda@mlgpublishing. co.uk Please also get in touch if you have any events you would like advertised on our website or in our What’s On section in the publications.
Wishing you a very Merry Christmas from all of the team at MLG Magazines
