Welcome to the winter issue of Exmoor Magazine!
With this, issue 65, we reach our 17th birthday and, again, to reflect Hilary's editor's letter from Winter 2009, I am also delighted to find that we are still proving the sceptics wrong! Far from being at a loss as to what to cover next, I have in front of me content plans for the next year. The enjoyable headache, if there is such a thing, continues; how to fit it all in?
In this issue our newest contributor, Holly Wright, meets a family – the Waley-Cohens – who will leave you impressed, in awe and, perhaps, feeling slightly inadequate. But never fear; you can console yourself with some warming winter game recipes care of Streamcombe Farm, indulge in a little armchair 'hashing', get lost in Jane Mares' touching tale of two robins and delve into the past of the Hoar Oak Valley, home of the famous Hoar Oak Tree from which we take our name of course (Hoar Oak Publishing).
At the end of the magazine there is an extensive diary of festive events to help you plan your Christmas calendar. So, put the kettle on, sit back, relax and enjoy the issue, with a tea or a coffee using our free samples from DJ Miles. This is part of our ‘Tea and a Read’ winter offer. Look out for special packs of Miles Tea – inside you will find a voucher which entitles you to save 10% on a one-year subscription – the perfect opportunity to treat yourself or a friend for Christmas.
Happy Christmas and good reading!
Naomi Cudmore, Editor
