Focus Magazines The local magazines for Abergavenny, Crickhowell, Brecon & Talgarth – Events, News and Advertising

cover2013Dear Readers,

I’m very excited to bring you this month’s issue of the Focus. You might notice that it’s a little weightier than usual, and you’d be quite right. Our usual 64 page magazine has increased to 72 pages this month – that’s an extra 8 pages of magazine for you to enjoy and keep you going as the night’s draw in, the rain begins to fall and the wind does windy things.

This month, we’ve put together a section which we’ve called ‘Time to Party.’ Quite often at this time of year when the Festive Season begins, we attend drinks gatherings, dinner parties, office dos and family get togethers. Whether you’re hosting your own party or attending one, we’ve got lots of ideas to get you in the party mood.

I’d particularly like to draw your attention to our Focus Survey in this month’s magazine on pages 16 & 17, or online here. We’d really love to hear what you think about the magazine, as your views are so very important to us in helping shape what we do and don’t include each month. As you’ll see there’s the possibility of winning a prize for returning your survey to us, so please do take a little time to complete it – we’ll be hugely grateful if you do.

Thanks once again for keeping us up to date with all your events and goings on. The Events Calendar is very full this month, meaning there is plenty going on in our area for you to get your teeth into.

Enjoy the read, and stay safe in this blustery weather!
