We are into May, the fifth month of the year and beach time has started already. It really is a time to enjoy the hot weather, relax a little and appreciate all the chances to socialise the summertime brings. It’s an exciting month for events this month because the Spring Festival is in full swing. There is everything from an acoustic night at the Bayside Sports Complex, to Classic Cars in Casemates and opera from the Philharmonic Society. See page 52 for the full schedule of events. At the beginning of the month there will be the Runway fashion event on top of King’s Bastion which is sure to be an exciting event with UK fashion designer William Wilde topping the bill (see page 53 and this month’s cover!). And if that gets your creative juices flowing, you can learn to paint like watercolourist James Foot in workshops taking place at the end of May (see page 59). What a great line-up of events! Do you have a holiday home across the border? Or a flat in Gibraltar you don’t use all the time? Perhaps you would consider doing a good deed and donating a week or two to the charity Give Us Time? Give Us Time organises much needed holidays for service personnel, and their families, when they return from tours of duty in Afghanistan. The charity, which is also open to those serving from Gibraltar, is new and needs as much support as possible. See page 40 for details. Happy birthday to the birthday trio at Café Rojo this month — Norbert, Luis and Aida (30, 40, and 50). Don’t forget that Café Rojo will be closed from 10th - 13th May as Luis will be whisked off to the Barcelona Grand Prix as a special birthday treat from Annette (who we think may be after a bit of shoe shopping in Barcelona too!). Happy birthday also to Jonathan Goodson on 5th May and the lovely Lisa Guerrero on 25th, Orlando Yeats on 6th, Marvin Cartwright on 19th, Maryanne Beriro on 23rd, Sacarello’s art show or-
