My Weekly editor Stuart JohnstoneIf there’s one word that defines summer 2021, it has to be “staycation”. Many of us are eschewing the traditional charms of sun-kissed beaches and exotic faraway locations for something closer to home. But where do you start? Our travel editor, Hope, has the answers in our comprehensive guide (p22). Whether you feel like a tent in the middle of nowhere or a more luxurious hotel, we have it covered. We all deserve a good break after the last year or so! What are you planning for your holidays? Do drop me a line and let me know. Enjoy the issue and have a great week.

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!
