Highfields' Own - - COMMUNITY - CLARE STANDFAST clare.standfast@thechron­i­cle.com.au

It’s so hard to be­lieve that we’re in April! Nat­u­rally, the Dar­ling Downs is bar­ing its cooler weather and it’s the per­fect ex­cuse to start rug­ging up in beau­ti­ful win­ter fash­ion.

This edi­tion of High­fields’ Own has made me feel very in­volved and close to the com­mu­nity, which is what High­fields is known for and a rea­son it’s so spe­cial — it en­gages every­one.

I’ve met some ab­so­lutely won­der­ful ladies who have re­branded the Mar­kets at the Manor to the High­fields Vil­lage Mar­kets, cre­at­ing a beau­ti­ful, fam­ily-ori­ented space for the com­mu­nity to en­joy ev­ery sec­ond Satur­day of the month.

This month our cover is graced by lo­cal ki­ne­si­ol­o­gist Amy Manz of Bliss­ful Essence — what a woman!

She has been an ab­so­lute joy to work with.

Amy also played a huge part in our main fea­ture this month, The Age of Anx­i­ety, where we talk about the de­vel­op­ment of anx­i­ety in to­day’s so­ci­ety and the in­volve­ment of holis­tic health.

Credit must go to Ar­bonne make-up mae­stro Joanna Maloney for mak­ing Amy ex­tra-beau­ti­ful on cover shoot day, and the High­fields Pioneer Vil­lage for giv­ing us such a funky, green and gor­geous lo­ca­tion.

I hope you en­joy this edi­tion as much as I al­ways en­joy gath­er­ing all of the won­der­ful pieces to put it to­gether.

As al­ways, drop me a line — I love hear­ing from you.

My best,
