There’s a word that has entered the national vernacular: “staycation”. As a way to describe a holiday spent in one’s home country rather than abroad, or one spent at home and involving day trips to local attractions, it’s nothing new. Personally I’m delighted that holidays in the UK are becoming so popular. Our economy needs all the help it can get, and we have a rich cultural heritage to explore. The last year has emphasised once again the fantastic, strong community that the whole of the Five Stokes area has become and it is great to see how we are supporting each other and also ‘keeping it local’ by supporting local businesses where we can.
We are very much still working hard to share the positive news from across the area, keeping residents up to date with the multiple and diverse activities taking place across the whole community. As well as promoting local community news and events, the magazine is a trusty directory for local businesses and traders, some of whom have been advertising with us since our very first issue back in 2005 and the majority for 10 years or more! Whatever you need, you will find a local business that can help, within the pages of our community magazine. If you would like to promote your business or services to the local community or raise awareness of a local group, please do get in touch via [email protected]. You can also download copies of recent editions of the magazines here .
