As we get to grips with another lockdown period, we can hopefully see some light at the end of the tunnel now almost a year on from when the pandemic first hit the UK. So, lets stay positive and look to the future rather than dwell on what has already happened and on things that are out of our control.

We’re delighted to have been able to stay in print for this issue. The support we have had from our advertisers and contributors has been fantastic and has certainly justified the decision. There are some great local businesses who advertise in Wave, with many living at Waverley too, so if you do have a requirement for the services of anyone in Wave please do consider them. Buying local makes a huge difference to people’s livelihoods.

There seems to be lots of activity still going on around Waverley, which we’re delighted to bring to you in this issue. There’s some early news about the proposed railway station on the Sheffield line running parallel with Waverley, as well as further updates about the Olive Lane development and the Eco Garden shop.

For the wildlife enthusiasts amongst you, there’s a Wildlife trail around the lake which has been mapped out on page 13. With many parents now home schooling, this educational walk could help brighten up your daily exercise routines!

We also have a couple of new features to introduce this issue as well – for film and TV enthusiasts we have a resident critique, reviewing a selection of lockdown favourites, and if you have ever wondered what some of the road names around Waverley are named after, check out the new local history feature from our good friends at History 0114.
