Time flies when you’re having fun!

It’s hard to believe it’s April and a third of 2024 has come and gone. It seems like only yesterday that we were celebrating the new year. Time flies when you’re having fun!

Our April issue is another cracker, filled with lots of good things happening north of the Harbour Bridge.
In this issue we focus on a few key things: Mother’s Day coming up early in May, Autumn Fashion and Style, and Retirement Living.
For Mother’s Day we chat with four Shore mums and get their perspective on what Sunday 12 May will mean to them.
We have many clever people and good businesses in the fashion and style space on the North Shore, and many are included in this issue.
I’m a real fan of retirement villages and enjoyed visiting two of our local villages to talk to men about their retirement lifestyles. And clearly Rob, Brad, Bill and Leigh are loving it. I am sure you will enjoy my chat with them.
I feel that Anzac Day has become a more important day as the years go on, as we remember those who served to preserve our way of life in conflicts around the world. More and more people are attending the commemorations. We include information in this issue about what is happening on the Shore on Anzac Day, Thursday 25 April.
I had a great deal of pleasure interviewing Phil Brosnan, founder of North Shore business Brosnan Construction. I can remember Phil coming to me with the brand-new logo a family member had developed for his business when he was launching back in 2010. Fourteen years on he has built a business that employs over 350 people throughout the country. Brosnan has established a reputation for its expertise in some specialist areas of construction. It’s a great story and one I enjoyed capturing as Phil is now stepping back from the business.
There’s lots to read in this issue covering many topics, including real estate, charities, theatre and the arts, eating out, interior design, shopping, logistics, local government, shopping centres, mother’s day, beauty, fashion and style, footwear, skincare, travel, Pilates, fitness, audiology, dental hygiene, sleeping, Anzac Day, retirement living, insurance, business, electrical, gardening, politics, health, events, motor vehicles, property, youth, schools and education, trusts, accounting and finance, law, history, community news, business association news, bowls, grumbling and more!
Enjoy your April 2024 Channel Mag.
