Dear Readers and Advertisers 
There is always lots to celebrate in March, especially if you are patriotic. The Welsh start things off with St David’s Day on Wednesday 1st March, when our Welsh friends sport daffodils and leeks and then along comes St Patrick’s Day, also known as the Feast of St Patrick, on Friday 17th March, which gives everyone the opportunity to celebrate all things Irish with green being the colour of the day, the shamrock the symbol of St Patrick and Guinness a favorite tipple. These patron saints always get a better showing than poor old England’s St George, but his day, 23rd April, gets pretty much passed over. However, the biggest celebra-tion in March is and should be Mothers Day (or Mothering Sunday) on Sunday 19th March. Mums deserve a special day. Where would we be without them? So let’s pamper and praise them, treat them and adore them to make them feel really appreciated.

After all that awful rain, during December and January, a hosepipe ban is no doubt just around the corner. We may all have webbed feet now but at least we can put them to good use at the seaside when Summer follows what we all hope is a bright and beautiful Spring. Spring is a good time to be cheerful, the clocks will be springing forward, the hedgerows are greening up and the birds have joyful songs in their throats. The empty trees fill up with green leaves, buds sprout everywhere, blooms appear and lambs bleat the arrival of new life. Puts a renewed spring in your step doesn’t it?
