My Weekly Latest Issue August 6

Cover of My Weekly latest issue with Sherrie Hewson and Dainty Delights cookery

My Weekly editor Stuart JohnstoneI’ll admit, when I’m at an airport – as I was in Edinburgh recently – one of the things I do is go to the newsagents to see if they stock My Weekly. They did! I would imagine lots of travellers, and staycationers for that matter, will be picking up this week’s issue as it’s packed with great holiday content – from summer beauty essentials to a health quiz to test how prepared you are for going away. And, of course, to help you relax there’s loads more fun and entertainment on every page for you to enjoy. Happy holidays and happy reading!

Stuart Johnstone, Editor

On the theme of budgeting, money columnist Sue Hayward reveals how to avoid being ripped off on holiday.

I've worked on a variety of regional newspapers and national magazines. My Weekly and Your Best Ever Christmas are fantastic, warm-hearted brands with an amazing, talented team. I'm a sub-editor and particularly love working on cookery, fiction and advice pages - I feel I should know all the secrets of eternal life, health and happiness by now, but hey, we all need that regular reminder!
