Looking back… and forward

by 18th December 2018

Coming to the end of a year is a little like approaching a turning circle.

Coming to the end of a year is a little like approaching a turning circle. There’s a turn-off down Memory Lane, which travels past those places visited, destinations explored and special moments shared. Then there’s the other branch, a road unfamiliar, but which calls invitingly for you to go beyond the next bend, and the next, and the next…

Come with us as we journey along our 2018 road, remembering some singular highlights and happenings, and taking a look at what awaits you in the year to come. Perhaps some of these stop-offs will bring back wonderful memories; perhaps one or two are already on your “I have to go there” list.
