Welcome to the latest edition of Your Village Life magazine. As we enjoy the summer months, there is certainly a joyous, jubilant feeling in the air and this is in many ways attributed to the various local events which took place that has certainly brought the communities together.

The Jubilee bank holiday weekend was preceded by a royal visit from HM The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh which was the start of many a street party in our region and so in this issue, we look back at the royal visit as well as celebrating another key date in the calendar – the 400th anniversary of the Pendle witch trial. We catch up with local artist Philippe Handford who has been responsible for some striking ‘witch themed’ artwork as well as profiling local, award winning businessman, Tim Webber from Barnfield Construction.

As always, this issue also comes to you bursting with properties in our portfolio as well as the usual mix of advice, interviews, Day in the Life features, our what’s on guide, village spotlights and we give you a chance to win a sumptuous hamper packed with goodies thanks to Rachel’s organics.

We hope you will enjoy the read and look forward to doing business with you.
