Editorial: Welcome to Glasgow…finally!

25th April 2021

As of 26 April, we get to meet Glasgow again, and for many of you, for the first time. For the best part of a year, all the things that make Glasgow have been put on pause. But now, vaccines are being distributed, restrictions are being lifted, the sun is coming out… everything’s coming up ...

Editorial: New year in the ‘new normal’

11th September 2020
