Welcome to our winter edition of The Post. Our festive issue is packed with lots of interesting stuff, with news from around our homes, our communities and our region. We have some stocking filler alternatives for you in our first edition of ‘My Basket’ (pg17). As usual, we’ve reviewed some of our favourite literary offerings, and have three brilliant books for you to get cosy with, in front of the fire. And of course, some brain teasers to keep the cogs turning, all can be found on (pg16). 

We also explore the changing landscape of our region. Charting the rise and rise of modern architecture in the region, in our feature ‘The changing face’ (pg10). We also welcome TV chef’s, theHairy Bikers to The Post. They bring us a real festive recipe in their first regular piece ‘Cooking with’ (pg21).

But for now, sit back, relax, and enjoy reading. And remember, if you like what you read, or want to contribute something to the next issue, please get in touch with us. Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year, from me and all the team here at Wellburn.
