Lovely lyrics by Elvis Costello; Everyday I Write the Book. Talking of writing books, our mates at Armley Press had a busy 2015 and there’s more to come this year as they plan a book a month – all from Northern writers. (see page 37)

If you fancy something a little more active than reading books, then why not trek up the Great Wall of China, or cycle to Paris, or even er walk your dog in Tempsi…all to raise money for St. Gemma’s hospice.

Looking for something new to do for the new year? Why not let Chapel FM help you find your frequency, who knows this time next year you could be presenting your own radio show. And if you are, spare a thought for people not as lucky as you – Pc Sean McDonald highlights hate crime in the area against disabled people.

Anyway, Happy New Year to all our readers and advertisers, here’s hoping for a good one.

Ali & John
