From the editor
Welcome to the 2021 edition of Wiltshire Life. It is time to look forward with the prospect of a vaccine to immunise against the Covid-19 virus, bringing the opportunity to see family and friends once again. In the January issue we look at the towns across the county that are well worth re-discovering, with plenty of independent shops and interesting places to visit. So, as the new year begins, why not take those first steps out and about to reconnect with all the wonderful things we have here in the county and support our local producers and businesses at the same time.
