You are here: Local Women Mid-Ulster
HThis month to celebrate Mother’s Day we dedicate this edition of Local Women to our mums.
But, for those of us who have sadly lost our mums, it is a time to reminisce and remember the good times.
I loved reading the tributes to your mums that you sent in. Mums really are something special and being one is such a privilege– even if the work is thankless and badly paid! So, this month tell your mum you love her.
Also in this month’s magazine, alongside our usual mix of local social events and fashion, it’s the last chance for you to enter the Firmus Energy/Local Women Awards.
We want as many of you as possible to enter these awards and get the recognition you deserve. This year everyone’s favourite local woman May McFettridge will host our gala event on April 13 at the Europa Hotel – so get entering! For those of us who are lucky enough to still have our mums in our lives, it is an opportunity to say thanks.
Until next month,
Kim Kelly, Editor
