There will be a Very Leiston Christmas on 10th December!
Local traders, Live Music, Street Entertainment and of course Santa’s grotto – and much more, so be sure to go along and support this great community event. See page 5 for more details and pop the date in your diary.
There is more great entertainment coming up in the run up to Christmas and I’m sure we all need a lift in these uncertain times so do take a browse through these pages and support our local theatres.
We felt we had to mark the Queen’s passing this month, hence our cover. Like most people she is the only monarch I have ever known and it felt like she would be with us forever. A truly remarkable 70 year reign it is hard to find fault with. Whatever your views on Royalty you can’t help but admire her dedication, hard work (how many people work for 70 years of their life?) and sense of duty – the likes of which I doubt we will ever see again.
Firstly I would like to thank Becky Cuthbert, who many of you may know, for letting me share her very personal story on page 5. It is a story of resilience and tenacity and as Becky says “if it helps just one person it will be worth it”.
As summer draws to a close there are still events to look forward to. The Long Shop have a Motor Cycle day on 11th September and a Festival of Food & Drink on 15th & 16th October. Also the LTAA have come to the rescue, kindly providing a new venue for the popular Leiston community Arts & Craft Fair on the 18th September – we clearly have many talented people locally, why not go along and maybe find some early Christmas gifts or just treat yourself?
