Home Uncategorized MERRY CHRISTMAS


Christmas will soon be upon us. We can all wish that the weather was more like that in the picture.
Because of the need for your editor to travel South to be with family over this Festive Time, this will be the final post at least for the next few days. So on behalf of us all at the Caledonian Mercury, have a simply wonderful time.
