Winter and Easter are now behind us and the warmer spring and summer weather awaits just around the corner. Here at City Life our spring theme is boldness.
“What you can do or think you can do, begin it. For boldness has magic, power and genius in it.” – Goethe
Two of Dundee’s boldest, Gary Roberston and Andrew Murray Scott, are showcased in our Spring Issue. These two proud Dundonians had the courage to follow their passions and the magic definitely followed for them. Our Mary Slessor and Bonnie Dundee articles also show that it was the bold who made Scottish history. After such a bold declaration by the Scottish people at the recent general election, maybe some magic and power awaits us all.
Even here at City Life we have taken the bold step to increase our magazine circulation to a total coverage of 20,000 households, so we now include new areas such as Broughty Ferry, Monifieth, Invergowrie, Liff and Birkhill, so welcome to our new readers. We have even launched our new Facebook page so we are now boldly embracing social media! So, follow us on Facebook to get links to various articles past and present. You can catch up on past articles with fellow Dundonians; actor, Brian cox; entrepreneur, Tony Banks; singer, Sheena Wellington; writer and broadcaster, Billy Kay; human rights activist and author, Craig Murray; and fashion designer, Hayley Scanlan. Also look out for other links to all things Dundonian.
