My Weekly Latest Issue February 8

FEb 12 cover

My Weekly editor Stuart JohnstoneThe last time I was in Durham was when my daughter was at a university open day a few years ago. Our trip was brief, but I remember a historically significant, picturesque town – and an amazing wee café that served some of the best sweet waffles I’ve ever had! Our travel section delves much deeper into this north-east England jewel this week (p42) but more generally, with restrictions easing once more, let’s hope we can all start to think about holidays soon. Are you going anywhere nice this year? If so, drop us a line and tell us where. Have a great week!

Stuart Johnstone, Editor

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!
