People need people, To walk to, To talk to. To cry and rely on, people will always need people. To love and to miss, to hug and to kiss. It’s useful to have other people. To whom to moan If you’re all alone, it’s so hard to share, When no one is there. Kindly words from poet Benjamin Zephaniah who sadly passed away just before Christmas. Moving onto 2024 and as the nights slowly get lighter anyone wanting to make a few changes to their lives might be well served giving our resident East Leeds hypnotist Gillian Lambert a call. Whether it’s anxiety or stopping smoking, Gill can help. If you can’t see yourself doing that, why not try boxing (page 22) or karate (page 13), whatever you do this year, let’s raise a glass to a bit less rain than we had last year.
