A very warm welcome to Issue #4 of the Life Seeker community newspaper. I hope you’ve enjoyed the first month of the new year with fun, fresh air and cosy times on the sofa.

Our last issue not only generated more great comments, it has now been read over 2,500 times by the online community. It’s encouraging to know that Life Seeker is filling a gap in terms of providing local positive lifestyle content from one easy to read portal.

In this issue we are pleased to launch The Smile Files and share two real life stories on how local individuals manage their mental and physical health. Thanks to Kevin Chunisingh and Andrew Stirling for their important contribution.  

We also share ideas to look after ourselves locally in the way of moving more, contributing to good work initiatives and thinking about how to comfortably fuel our bodies.

We have our first contribution from Pembrokeshire Online on being hard of hearing, an extraordinary story about a lady walking 20k miles for Alzheimer’s Research UK and details of how Team Life Seeker will be raising money for Paul Sartori – please join us!

As always, let me know what you think of Life Seeker so far – email me to let me know.

Hearing Aid - NHS - Pembrokeshire - Wales

Can you hear me?

Over a number of years in my fifties, I found I was avoiding some social situations more and more. It wasn’t that I was deaf exactly. I could hear, but people had stopped making much sense if there was any background noise.
