This issue has bought back some great memories for me. My lovely late mum was a massive Cliff Richard fan. I grew up listening to his music; so much so that by the age of six I probably knew all the words to all his songs. I also loved watching his films with her. She didn’t much like musicals (‘why do they need to randomly burst into song?’), but made an exception for Cliff. To celebrate the Peter Pan of Pop’s 60th year in showbiz we look back over his amazing career and share some of your memories too (page 78).
I can’t quite believe I’m saying this but last week I completed my first-ever 5K Park Run!
It felt like such an amazing achievement that I cried when I crossed the finish line (that’s me in purple!). Suffering with an auto-immune condition, over many years my fitness had deteriorated to the extent that a few years ago I could barely walk half a mile. It has been a very slow battle over several years to try to reclaim my health, but worth every painful step.
With my sister Mandy – she made me do it!
