First I just want to say how terribly saddened we all were to hear about the passing of Roy Hudd on March 15. He was our much-loved columnist for more than 20 years and one of the perks of being editor is that I was in regular contact with him and was privileged enough to meet him on several occasions. He was a genuinely lovely old-fashioned gentleman (he kindly shared his umbrella with me once). He was also a fabulous raconteur who had an encyclopedic knowledge of the showbiz world and could talk for hours sharing the most wonderful stories. I know readers will miss him terribly and so will I. You can read our tribute on page 85. In these uncertain times I also wanted to reassure you that Yours…

What’s all the fuss about? MARMITE’S BIG MOMENT Love it or hate it, Marmite is getting trendy! Michelin-star restaurants across the UK have started to use the divisive yeast spread in their meals, from Marmite-glazed chicken wings to Marmite and marrowbone flat-iron steak. And a new range of specials has launched in the shops, including Marmite Brussels sprouts and Marmite butter in M&S. Words of wisdom Never judge a book by its cover, don’t get too big for your boots, look after the pennies and the pounds will look after themselves. These are just a few of the wise sayings many of us have up our sleeves. Now recent findings from a survey have revealed that three quarters of young adults tap into older wisdom, regularly asking for tips on love, life and money.…

‘i fell in love on the set of belgravia!’

It’s said that actors should never share stage nor set with animals for fear of them misbehaving or – in the case of particularly cute ones – hogging the limelight. However Tamsin Greig had no such concerns about her canine co-star in Belgravia. The actress fell hook, line and sinker for the gorgeous, miniature daschund who is constantly by the side of her character, Anne Trenchard in the drama. In fact, Agnes – or Emma to give the little sausage her real name – has become a real favourite with us all. “She was just so sweet,” Tamsin smiles. “Belgravia was one of her 'first jobs’ so she was a newbie. She had a massive trailer! It was lovely to have her on my lap on cold days! As viewers will…

meeting place

All aboard for change ✒ I was interested to read about adopting and saving local railway stations (issue 340). Staying in Linlithgow last summer, I was pleasantly surprised at how nice they’d made their local railway station. There’s a seating area with a lending library shelf/book exchange, and an ambience that the station is cared about. It’s a great example of how our stations should be treated. I was loath to go back to my own grotty station! I’d love to be part of a community that helps make these places more welcoming. Heather Moulson, Twickenham The photo I’ll always treasure ✒ I love this photo of myself and my husband Richard on our Lambretta scooter. It was taken in 1958, the year we got married, on a road trip through France and Italy. Ann…

fashion we wore

We’d love to see your snapshots from the Fifties, Sixties, Seventies and Eighties. Send your photos, marked Fashion We Wore, to the address on page 8, along with your name, address and a 50-word description of your outfit. 1951: I was 17, on holiday in the Isle of Man, when this snap was taken. I’m wearing a red and white gingham dress, which I had made myself. The drop earrings were very fashionable then, as was the curly perm. Back home, someone remarked how my outfit looked like a tablecloth and I never wore it again! Dorothy Clare, Derbyshire 1963/64: This photo was taken when I was attending a wedding with my family. My white, short-sleeved dress was accessorised with a green raffia-type bag and green patent leather sandals. Fashion in the Sixties…

little tree

One day feeling down and grey As I was going on my way Something there did catch my eye Such beauty almost made me cry A tiny tree with blossoms pink It made me stop and begin to think Of all the wonders in the world Nothing matched those buds unfurled Beside this, all else did pall Designed by the greatest architect of all Radio delight ✒ Reading in Meeting Place about plays on the radio took me back in time to listening to the wireless with Mum and Dad on a Saturday evening. The thriller Paul Temple was a must-listen! Christine Bailey, Warwickshire Viva la supermarket! ✒ I really enjoyed my recent holiday in Spain – and I loved this sign!
