hello!

A song of the sea Because she grew up on the coast, my wife Claire isn’t that interested in the sea – for her it was the holidays taken in the Yorkshire Dales, playing in Pennine streams, that she remembers with the greatest affection, rather than those spent sitting on a beach. For me, though, the sea was always exotic, extraordinary and exciting; and I like that it’s also central to our nation – until recently, all of us who arrived onto our islands in search of a better life, or left on a similar quest, had to do it by braving an ocean voyage. So if you feel the same as me, rather than Claire, have a look at page 38 for some lovely waterside places to stay.…

good to share

Summer sunflowers August is the height of the sunflower season, and the perfect time to see fields ablaze with dancing, golden flowers. One of the UK’s best spots to see this breathtaking sight is along the Rhossili coastline in Gower. Here, an initiative begun by the National Trust has helped to grow half a million glorious sunflowers, transforming the area into a pollinator’s paradise. Bee populations in the sunflower fields have risen from 2,000 to a quarter of a million in just two years. THE FUTURE LOOKS BRIGHT Children dream of changing the world. A recent study by Smart Energy GB revealed that 57% want to invent a product to help solve the climate crisis, while 44% aspire to be scientists. DID YOU KNOW? Our planet’s largest living organism is in the depths of the…

letter of the week

GOOD FOR YOUR HEALTH I loved your recent article about health apps [1 June], and how beneficial they are to monitor our health and wellbeing. The health-tracking apps give us peace of mind with regards to serious conditions like cancer, heart disease and diabetes. This is something I personally would consider using. The heart rhythm app is the most interesting because it uses the camera on your phone and can assist in detecting symptoms of heart problems. Thanks for the useful advice!

what you’re wearing

JULIE WEUNG, 45 Tell us about your look I think my entire outfit came from TK Maxx. I’ve layered a floaty linen jacket over a tunic top and loose cotton trousers. I like simple, easy shapes and pure white always looks so cool. I’ve added a floral-print hat from Hong Kong and my straw bag from China. I just love the gorgeous flower trim – they look so real! And the best bit of your body? My long hair. BEVERLEY MAYERS, 67 Tell us about your look I bought my dress at a beach shop while on holiday in Portugal. I love the mix of prints and colours. Both my sandals and bag came from Woolworths in South Africa – which is quite different from the old Woolworths stores that used to be here! And the best bit…

‘having children is very grounding!’

Helen Skelton doesn’t rule out having more children as she embraces rural living in her new Yorkshire cottage, but admits she’ll have to convince her mum to stop working before she can consider expanding her brood. The 38-year-old laughs as she confides, ‘If my mum retired, I would have more… but I‘m working on that!’ The mum-of-two, who moved into her 1850s home with husband Richie Myler and their sons, Ernie, six, and Louis, four, at the start of this year, has been loving family life recently. ‘What’s been nice this year for us is that I have worked from home a lot more and most of it – filming Channel 5’s On the Farm – has been from my garden. ‘It has been great to spend a lot of time together… and…
