December/January: Welcome to South

Here’s hoping our first monthly edition will give readers a thirst for more because the SOUTH team is full of enthusiasm for this new, complimentary, monthly magazine which puts lifestyle to the fore.

Editor, Helen Perry

We have tried to cover as many bases as possible offering readers a taste of fashion, travel, health and beauty, books, social events and a little motoring too.

Our profile on Mauku water colourist Claudia Slaney is a hint at things to come – a look at the arts, in general, with a focus on people who have made their mark, locally, nationally and internationally but have special links to our wider district – Franklin and beyond.

SOUTH is all about the good life which I know local residents can attest to – after all that’s why we chose to make our home in this wonderful locality – gateway to Waikato and southern regions, yet a place where urban style and country attributes are a match.

SOUTH will be delivered to letterboxes in selected areas and will also be available from dropboxes within local townships and businesses. Alternatively you can read online at www.southmagazine.co.nz or request a postal subscription ($45 annually).

In the meantime, I hope this very first SOUTH provides ample reading and gives you all a great deal of pleasure. Our team has had loads of fun bringing it together and we’ve met some great people in the process. So, a big thanks to everyone for their support. Now, just enjoy!
