  • Summer Fun across the community as summer events and playschemes were up and running.
  • A remarkable interview with David Kitson, newly released from jail in South Africa after being jailed for 20 years for fighting against apartheid.
  • Sports columnist Duncan Mclellan reporting on McEnroe and his controversial temper.
