Fear, stress and anxiety have all intensified for people with cancer during the current health crisis, which means people need Maggie’s now more than ever.
Maggie’s relies almost entirely on voluntary donations, so the generosity of all our supporters, including players of People’s Postcode Lottery, is vital in allowing us to keep supporting those living with cancer, and dealing with the significant impact of the coronavirus on their physical and mental health, on their finances and on the lives of their loved ones.
The support of players over the last 12 years has helped us to reach thousands of people across Great Britain living with cancer and I would like to send a huge heartful thank you to everyone who plays.

How much I regret not writing sooner to defend the Editor, who made some very pertinent comments in the May issue, regarding the shambles in which the UK finds itself in the coronavirus crisis. I had thought, and hoped, that there would be many howls of anguish at the criticisms levied at him, but maybe others felt like myself, and feared being trampled in the rush to defend him!
The down-to-earth attitude of Mike Lowe to many local issues is to be applauded, and his comments in the way the government has dealt with the current situation will strike chords with many people. We are all entitled to different views, and we should respect different opinions, but an editorial such as Mike wrote in the May issue will have provoked comment and discussion, which, after all, a magazine such as Cotswold Life has every right to do.
Keep up the good work, Mike, keeping our wonderful magazine grounded and balanced, keeping free speech alive and well!

I was dismayed to read two really unpleasant comments about cyclists in
Editor’s Comment and Cotswold Boy’s column. As a keen lycra-clad 73-year-old female cyclist ‘lycra louts, sweating and panting... an egotistical bunch at best of times’ are quotes which I find highly objectionable. I think these views reflect the very bigoted, right wing agenda that I detect in your magazine. Would these journalists prefer people stay at home getting more obese while they can enjoy the peace of their privileged lives?

I received my copy of Cotswold Life magazine today and couldn’t wait to enjoy its contents.
Mike Lowe’s opening Editorial was, as always, clever, witty, amusing and totally to the point !
Adam Edwards is another of my favourites. At a time when there is much to worry about and little laughter, I actually cried with laughter when reading his article in the June issue about his ‘makeshift’ washing line.
Cotswold Life is an amazing magazine which I will be subscribing to for a long time to come.
Please keep up the good work.

I read with dismay the comments made about your very true assessment of
