YOURS (UK) - - News - Sharon Reid, Ed­i­tor

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!
