The SPIRIT of change

At Spirit Magazine, we encourage our customers stand out from the crowd. To be brave, be different, try new things, re-invent themselves.

This year, we’ll be ten years old and we couldn’t think of a better way to mark the occasion than to take our own advice and give our magazine a makeover! We’ve re-invented ourselves with a new name, and a new-look magazine.

Our new name, SPIRIT Magazine reflects our community spirit, our zest and passion for everything we do!  It says that we’re full of high spirits, that we’re enthusiastic about living in this part of the world and that we consider it a real privilege to talk to the people in our community who make it all possible, our readers, our clients, and the amazing people who share their stories with us.

Of course, we had to take some time out to celebrate. Here we are: Kaye, Judy & Rebecca enjoying the moment as we finally get this issue to print.  Look out for our eye-catching car and check out these tee-shirts!
