#32 Energise

Welcome to the first issue of 2020. We hope you are energised and ready for the New Year. The team here at Ayrshire Magazine are looking forward to spending the next year with you, our subscribers and readers.

As we move into 2020 we have plans for our not-for-profit publication but we still need your support, so please, if you possibly can, subscribe. It really does help take the magazine onto the next level and there are benefits to be had from the deal.

Ready for 2020?

We noticed here at AM that those wise old owls at Scottish Television decided to bring in the New Year at Craufurdland Castle, Ayrshire. What a brilliant idea, Hogmanay in Ayrshire? Top that!

As always the team have been hard at work and our ‘Energise’ issue, designed to lift you from dark winter nights, is packed full of features that will revitalise parts of the soul other magazines don’t quite reach.

Jonathan Watson, set to appear in a new BBC sit-com called ‘Group’ in 2020, finds time in his busy work schedule to speak to AM. Vanetha, our food guru has tips on how to get energised for the challenges ahead in the coming year, while Linda Hill Miller gives us the New Year low down on Dubai. Gill has been out and about to find us another another local hero, while we have also been speaking to Kate Valentine, comic book artist Ian Churchill, and Ayrshire artist LJ Howie.

On the front cover of the ‘Energise’ issue is the energetic, high octane Richard Mair, mountain climber (Matterhorn, Mont Blanc and Gran Paradiso) and international runner (having represented Scotland this year).

Looking forward to the next stage of our journey and glad to have you on board. Have a great 2020 everyone.

– Phyllis McLeish
