EVERY year it is quite a challenge to come up with a new idea for what we are going to do with our annual staff photo – to do something that reflects on the year that has past (always too quickly) and our hopes and dreams for the year ahead.

This year we decided to go back to basics, back to nature and the simple things in life.

And this is what we will be taking into 2017 as well - to just breathe in nature and life again, to appreciate that we can still breathe and to make every breath count.

I have said in previous years that as one gets older, it becomes more about who is around the Christmas tree with you than the gifts lying underneath it.

This past year has been a very challenging one for many of the Express staff members and their loved ones, where some of us experienced great loss and much sadness.

But we have also had moments of great joy and laughter and are counting our blessings with a renewed determination to appreciate and be thankful for all the blessings we do have.

One of these is working for a newspaper group that has grown from strength to strength, yet again this past year. And this is not only thanks to the huge effort and dedication by every Express staff member but, also our very loyal readers and advertisers – and we thank you for that.

The PE Express team is taking a breather until January 11. May all our readers and advertisers have a blessed Christmas, special times with loved ones, safe travels, and yes – the opportunity to just breathe again. See you again in 2017.
