As I write this, the first snow has arrived in Aberdeen and the countdown to Christmas is well under way.
It’s a musical countdown for many, as is highlighted by the University of Aberdeen’s head of Music, David J Smith, and in our Diary/What’s On pages - where you’ll also see that once again, the people of the North-east have a wonderful range of cultural events to choose from as the festive season approaches.
In true Leopard tradition, we have a bumper December-January issue for you, and to celebrate the season, there’s a special treat in store for new or renewing subscribers. Many thanks to all those local producers who have generously stocked our ‘Best of Scotland’ Luxury Hampers with some of their finest fare. Thanks also to our new Prize Crossword sponsor, Ola Oils, of Inverurie...
