Editor's Letter

Sue Gillman

With the festive season just around the corner – and most of us wondering what challenges next year will bring – it’s more important than ever before to support our local businesses.

Here in the Dales we’re lucky to have a host of independent retailers who can supply a far wider range of products and services than you’ll find online or in the superstores – and often at better prices too. If you don’t want them to disappear, give them your custom!

One of the best things about the Dales is our sense of community, and Dales Life has always been at the centre of things. We and our readers support our advertisers, and our advertisers in turn support us. Without them we wouldn’t have been able to bring you this free, top-quality magazine, year after year. So if you’ve discovered a business through Dales Life, don’t forget to mention us when you contact them!

We will be back in spring, here’s wishing everyone all the very best for Christmas and the New Year.
