“The times, they are a changin’”, a well-known folk rock star once famously sang. That’s certainly true in the pages of My Weekly this week as our summer features go into hibernation and our winter ones awake from their slumber! So we say a fond farewell to our expert gardener Susie White, who leaves us with handy tips on preparing your garden for the months ahead (Susie will be back in spring!) Meanwhile our attention is turning to the festive season and easy ways to save money for Christmas. Enjoy the issue!
