With summer, and (hopefully) the end of lockdown just around the corner, spirits will no doubt be high as we take another step closer to coming out of the pandemic and returning to more freedom.
As I sat down to write the intro to our June 2021 issue I had a look back at the corresponding issue from 2020 – which was our lockdown issue. Whilst only 12 months ago, it seems like a lifetime ago that we were talking about lockdown walks, the Waverley Heroes fundraising campaign and the Waverley Rainbows that popped up all around the development.
Fast forward again and we are out socialising, and able to see family and friends again in a less restrictive environment – something we have all missed and will never take for granted again.
As things start to open back up again, so do a lot of local businesses and community groups, many of which are features in Wave. Please do you bit to support local and help everyone rebuild and reconnect again!
In this issue we have some exciting news from our magazine sponsor, Harworth, on the development of a new hotel on land going down towards the Morrisons roundabout. In addition to the plans for Olive Lane, this will no doubt bring something different to Waverley that can be enjoyed by the community.
We also have news from Waverley Wanderers FC, who are raring to go again and on the lookout for players and coaches for their junior teams. If you have any budding footballers in the house, why not get them involved!
Thanks to everyone who has got involved in this issue. If you would like any further info about featuring in Wave Magazine, please drop us a line to firstname.lastname@example.org.
