CHRIS CAMPBELL-HOWES came out of teaching in Scotland early to settle in the deep South, where he lives in one of France's prettiest villages on the road between Toulouse and Montpellier. When he's writing he wishes he had more time for music, and when he's playing or conducting he wishes it didn't slow progress on the various books he's working on!

Languedoc & Provence Sun N°54 (Winter 2015)
It’s been 10 years since the ﬁrst issue of Languedoc Sun was published, time does ﬂy! Life has changed a lot for me in that time: I started with two toddlers; I now have stroppy teenagers, which can only mean one thing: that I am an old creep as far as they’re concerned.
I have learnt a lot over the years and I have been lucky to meet some wonderful people along the way, starting with our lovely editors Wendy, Ed, Jacquie, Laura, Elisabeth, Angela & now Carole. Life has changed a lot for them too and I like to think that the magazine may have helped them to experience positive things.
Thanks to Languedoc Sun, I’ve shared a lot of people’s passion and had some fabulous experiences. This magazine gave my life a meaning when I moved back to France. It has opened my eyes and helped me to appreciate this world and the wide variety of people within it. I must admit I feel a little protective of it, as if it were my baby and I know the rest of my wonderful team feels the same. I’d like to express a warm thank you to Carole, Vincent, Griet, Caroline our webmaster and Yvonnick our treasurer for the great work they do, as well as to all our excellent contributors who help us to be what we are. And of course to our advertisers who carry on trusting us.
Each time someone send me an article which I can then share with you all, it’s magic...
Thanks for all your support and lovely letters during these 10 years. I wish you all a Happy New Year.
Long life to Languedoc & Provence Sun.
