4 Something about May I’ve come to the realisation I’m at my happiest around water. I don’t know whether it’s the ripple in a reservoir, the clapping of waves, or the fresh breeze that gives me a new lease of life, but I know when I’m by water this is where I’m the most calm. My happiest memory is when I was on holiday in Spain, on a pedalo on a lake surrounded by rolling mountains, and that was a moment in time where I felt anything was possible. And whenever I need a little boost at home, I get outside and enjoy the vast green spaces our local area has to offer. And I think May is a great month to get out and enjoy ourselves. There are lots of activities for the whole family to enjoy this month, including Culcheth and Glazebury Parish Council Community Day which falls on Monday, May 7th, to keep everyone in the Bank Holiday Mood. Or perhaps you’d like to let your inner child shine with a trip to the Turnpike to see Roald Dahl’s classic ‘The Twits’ brought to life courtesy of the Turnpike Community Theatre. And remember, as The Twits say: “A person who has good thoughts cannot ever be ugly. If you have good thoughts they will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely.” My head is very much getting geared up for the encroaching summer months, and I’m sure many of you are hoping for a warm and sunny British summer too. A girl can dream. See you next time! Niamh Ollerton, Deputy Editor
