The weather is warming up and we’ve made sure the Spring issue of Village Life magazine is filled with fantastic fashion, food worth celebrating and everything you need to live a luxurious life!

A trip to Swain Gardens in nearby Killara was the perfect backdrop for our Spring fashion shoot (pages 6-13). We showcase the latest fashion and beautiful homewares to have you packing a picnic and stepping out in style to soak up the sunshine.

We meet Luke Harris, the Co-CEO of Harris Farm Markets to chat about the unveiling of the new look market-style store (page 19). It’s also time to meet the fresh additions to our family of retailers at The Village. Can you spot a familiar face?

Our Spring Savoury Special makes it easy to entertain your guests this season with everything from a backyard BBQ bash to bite-sized breadwinners and a classy soiree to fill your social calendar (pages 23-29).

Give your kitchen a seasonal makeover with the latest in styling trends and the products you’ll need to get the look (page 31).

The kids will love our pick of fun games and cute toys and we had some very special guests in to review three of the best kids reads that are perfect for the school holidays (page 32-33)

Are you in the market to sell of curious what your house could be worth? Get a snapshot of property in St Ives with our resident real estate expert (page 34) and discover some top tips for preparing your house for sale.

There’s all that and more to love in the Spring issue, available in the centre now. Or, you can read it online here:
