Along with the popular rankings, stories fill the pages with newfound information including how to enjoy a weekend game of cricket.

“I come to watch the games,” said Jim Lodge who can be seen at games in Beacon Hill Park. “But so many people have questions. We made a  couple of ‘cricket explained’ guides.”

“People in Victoria are not always conscious of what lies beyond the city,” said Emily Carr aficionado Elaine Limbrick. “They need to come out here to the West Shore and discover the wonderful landscapes as Emily Carr did.”
