My Weekly Latest Issue April 5

My Weekly editor Stuart JohnstoneIsn’t it incredible just how much the price of things is soaring? A trip to the supermarket is decidedly more expensive than it was two years ago, for example. The cost of living crisis is something that is hard to ignore for everyone, and this week our gardening expert Susie White has some excellent advice for saving money by growing our own fruit and veg (p22). It’s healthy for our bodies and for our bank balances! As always, the brilliant Susie makes it look so easy, and luckily she has plenty of hints and tips to make it easy for us too! I hope you find it useful. 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!
