LEYLAND Leader is coming back for June 2020 – and how good it feels to be back, if under strict guidelines, after two months of lockdown. And it’s our 15th birthday!
These are still strange times but at least Leyland Leader, along with many other local businesses, is slowly opening up.
Keep calm and carry on – yet stay safe and stay alert is the order of the day for us and for everyone around.
The ‘rising from the pandemic’ edition – issue 180 – is our belated 15th birthday magazine. We were unable to print or deliver in April or May due to the Coronavirus crisis, so the upcoming magazine is a ‘celebration’ for all kinds of reasons.
Leyland Leader began back in April 2005 with a simple black-and-white magazine with a card cover, printed on plain paper. Since then, 180 months later, we have progressed to a monthly glossy with, on average, 88 full colour pages.
Prospects for the economy – local, national, global even – and ‘normal life’ are still not great, but the wheels of industry are beginning to turn again.
We are grateful to al the many local businesses – hundreds of them – who have supported us throughout our 15 years of serving Leyland. It’s especially gratifying to know that most of our current supporters – your local trades, businesses, organisations and charities are keen to continue to work with us.
Let’s support our local businesses, they need us more than ever as we move
forward – uncertain times, uncharted waters, but if we work together, we can make the most of them.
Also, we remember to thank the many key workers who have continued to battle through this crisis to keep the country going. They are all simply wonderful and we owe them our heartfelt gratitude. As we celebrate our own ‘little birthday landmark’ we also celebrate the fantastic efforts our frontline workers are making at this time.
Thank you stay safe!
