Blink and you miss it – as another year draws to a close it gives us all an opportunity to reflect on what we have achieved, and to look forward to what’s in store not only for the new year, but a new decade as well!

There’s been a lot of progress at Waverley in 2019, you could argue this year has seen more key developments than others with the school well underway, plus the extension of Highfield Lane which will connect Waverley to Catcliffe. Check out the latest update from our sponsor, Harworth on pages 10 and 11 to get a birds eye view of how things are developing on both the residential and commercial sides of Waverley.

As we edge nearer to Christmas, there’s some great events to look forward to both at Waverley and in the surrounding areas from some of our advertisers. Of course, there’s the annual Christmas Tree Light Switch On event taking place on Sunday 1st December – if this year’s event is anything like last years, we’re in for a treat. Head on down to Central Park (another key milestone for Waverley in 2019) and Highfield Square to take in this year’s festivities. More details are on page 7.

December is an important month for Waverley residents who have children of primary school age, as applications will be open from 1st December for pupils going into years 1 to 6 in September 2020. Don’t forget to apply for your child’s place no later than 14th February 2020 – check out page 32 for further info.

It’s great to see the Community Council actively engaging with the community – they are on the look out for a new councillor if this is of interest to any residents. The One Stop Shop exhibition they organised in October was a big success and it was great to get so many different Waverley stakeholders all together in one room. Thank you to everyone who took the time to come and say hello on the Wave Magazine stand as well! You can read more from the Community Council on pages 4 and 5, which also includes the winner of the logo competition from the last issue of Wave.

A final note of thanks to all our advertisers and contributors, it’s great having such a wide variety of local businesses on hand, and without you all Wave Magazine wouldn’t be possible.  If you would like to get your business involved with Wave, or if you have some news you would like to share with us please drop us a line to

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year!
