Do you enjoy reading fascinating features and riveting columns about the countryside?

If so you will love our new edition of Rural Life, which will be going out with the Garstang Courier, Longridge News, Clitheroe Advertiser and Lancaster Guardian.

We’ve got some enthusiastic local contributors, who are aiming to entertain and educate you in equal measure, and the ever popular Kate Humble has also agreed to share her wildlife knowledge with you every month.

Take a peek at Stewart Lambert’s column about lamb, which provides you with a no-nonsense guide to the different characteristics of this succulent meat. Or sit back and enjoy the gardening page by Barton Grange’s Tom Knowles, which will give you seasonal tips about what you should be doing to keep your garden in tip-top condition over the coming weeks.

If you enjoy a nice piece of Lancashire cheese, you’ll love hearing from Graham Kirkham about how he is sticking to the traditional way of making Mrs Kirkham’s cheese while still driving the Goosnargh family business forward.

For anyone who has ever been tempted to pick and cook a few wild mushrooms, be warned, it’s not something to do without expert guidance. One such expert is David Winnard, who, at just 25, already has 20 years of harvesting fungi to his credit. Read who introduced him to this fascinating pastime.

And when you have read everything that we have on offer this week, maybe it will be time to don your boots and take a walk. Our resident walks expert Bob Clare will show you the way.
