We did it! My daughter and I conquered the Marie Curie trek across Dartmoor – over 14 miles, 13 tors, several blisters (and only a few tears)! It was an amazing event to be part of, with more than 200 walkers (plus an army of volunteers) all taking time out of their busy lives to help support the charity’s vital work caring for people with terminal illness. There was a wonderful spirit of camaraderie on the day buoying each other up when the going got tough and quite literally lending a helping hand to one another as we scrambled over rocks and across streams. With everyone’s generous donations we raised £570 but the whole event raised an enormous £60,000! And if that knowledge wasn’t reward enough, we also got a…

Stephanie’s plea for older actresses Doc Martin and Open All Hours actress Stephanie Cole says more needs to be done to allow older women to thrive on screen. Although she feels the industry is slowly changing, she says it shouldn’t be taboo to hire an older actress or write stories for older characters. Absolutely, we say! STRING BAGS ARE BACK Once a familiar sight on the high street string bags are making a return. The supermarket chain Morrisons is trialling the bags for customers to carry loose fruit and veg home. The reusable bags cost £1 and are made from recycled cotton. BEEP BEEP! One of the smallest cars ever built is set to go on display at the Leeds Industrial Museum. The three-wheeled Scootacar is just 60in high, 87in long and 52in wide! See…

What’s all the fuss about? Guilt-free chocolate At last! A cocoa producer has come up with what it says is the world’s healthiest chocolate bar. Containing 40 per cent less sugar than an average bar, it’s made with the flesh and skin of the cocoa tree’s fruit which is high in fibre, minerals and vitamins – just don’t expect it to taste like a regular Dairy Milk! Initially it is being rolled out in chocolate shops and restaurants, it’s hoped they will be available in shops soon. END OF THE CONKER FIGHT? Remember battling a pal in a game of conkers? Sadly the game enjoyed by generations of children is facing a knockout blow with conkers increasingly in short supply due to a moth that attacks horse chestnut trees. Decades of decline have been…

what a beauty!

From pretty ponies emerging in the sunrise to a hungry little mouse chomping through some autumnal fodder, our natural world has so many magical sights to show us. And every year, the BBC Sunday night show Countryfile has been showcasing these precious moments in a special calendar that also raises money for Children in Need – and this year is no exception. For 2020, judges including veteran Countryfile presenter John Craven, singer and broadcaster Cerys Matthews and Hairy Biker Simon King, whittled down 42,000 entries to just 12 stunning photos around the theme of Beauty and the Beasts. Last year the calendar raised a staggering £2.4 million for some of the most vulnerable children and young people and this year they’re hoping the spectacular snaps in their calendar – a selection…

star letter

‘Children don’t know how to skip!’ ✒ I recently took my grandchildren to Butlins for a short holiday and one of the activities was a ‘skipping’ session. It was amazing how few children could do the group skipping, ie two holding and turning the rope and one or more skipping together over it. I remember everybody at primary school being able to skip. I think it needs to be brought back as an activity, perhaps in schools? What do other readers think?
