Welcome to J’AIME

As we tumble into autumn in this most strange of

years, it’s not only the weather which is proving

changeable. With localised lockdowns upon us and

tightening of government restrictions in response

to the Covid-19 pandemic, there’s still very much a

sense of uncertainty in the air.

But here at J’AIME, we aim to look towards the

positive - and this issue, packed with feel-good

stories, is no different.

We chat to brilliant Lichfield theatre company Let

Me In, who aren’t letting things such as global

pandemics prevent them from putting on a show.

Their key to success? Adapt! Their first lockdown

show was a sellout hit, and with another planned

for November we discover how the show will

continue to go on.

On the foodie front, we chat to Lichfield chef Susie

Mandleberg, who has taken up the head role at

Thyme Kitchen, a new brunch restaurant which

opens at Curborough Countryside Centre this

month. She’s got big things planned and an exciting

menu of goodie - including a delicious baked eggs

dish which she has kindly shared the recipe for - so

why not pop over and indulge?

It’s now more important than ever to support

your local shops and businesses, and for those in

Lichfield, the new Visit Lichfield discount card will

enable you to do that while getting a little reward

into the bargain. There are plenty of retailers and

venues signed up to the scheme already, and we’ve

checked out what they’re offering to tempt you to

shop local.

Elsewhere, we chat to Sutton Coldfield veterinary

surgeon Lewis Wescott - aka Dr Chicken - about

how chickens have become one of lockdown’s most

popular pets, and Birmingham artist Kate Jones -

aka The Crafty Brum - about forging a new career

inspired by her surroundings.
