My Weekly Latest Issue February 4, 2020


Cover of My Weekly latest issue with Susan Boyle and mince recipes

My Weekly editor Stuart JohnstoneInspirational is a word that is thrown around a lot, but there is little doubt that Sue Cressman is worthy of the label. Since 1992, when she was diagnosed with breast cancer, Sue has endured a series of health challenges that would have defeated the hardiest of souls. Sue, however, would just not give up. Indeed, now she is fighting back. Find out more on page 36. Sue’s determination in the face of adversity is something that will definitely stay with me. I hope you find her story as inspiring as I did. Have a great week.

Stuart Johnstone, Editor

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!
