From the team
Summer is for slowing down and enjoying the good things in life. In this issue of Mildura Living, you’ll find everything to get you sorted, from starting your own fruit and vegetable garden, to planning your next driving holiday and so much more. As always, we meet some amazing people, like Lorna Bysouth, who at 98, has many a story to tell. Lorna will remind you that life is truly what you make it. With heart-warming candour she reflects on life and loss during the depression and war, while revealing her unwavering belief in family and love. We also find out how local foundation Chances For Children is changing the lives of young people in our region and how those, who were once recipients of Chances’ support, are now returning the favour. Mildura has some beautifully restored old homes and in this issue, we’re lucky enough to get a tour through two fine examples. Old they may both be, but they’re dramatically different and the restorations have captured their uniqueness while not compromising on the modern-day comforts we’ve come to expect. If it’s holiday escape that you’re after, we’ve investigated the delights of Coffin Bay, we’ve got the best of summer fashion, from pool to party and we’ve even got your holiday reading sorted. So sit back, relax and read about the best of Mildura Living – food, gardening, home, fashion, décor and of course, the people.
Wishing you a merry Christmas and a happy New Year. The Mildura Living team
PS – the author of our featured book, The Nowhere Child, in ‘A Good Read’, will be in Mildura on Thursday December 13. It’s a great chance to hear from Christian White about his story and the writing process.
