Strawberry fields forever It’s funny how things go in phases. Many people who lived through World War Two, used to the seasonal rhythm of home-grown foods, became quite scathing of my generation for blithely expecting to eat strawberries or broccoli at any time of year, flown in from sunnier climes. Yet my children and their contemporaries, with a greater understanding of climate change and the benefits of sustainability, have in turn begun to appreciate the joys of seasonality again. I’m with the millennials – surely foods you have to wait for taste all the better for it? So, if you feel the same, and plan to make the most of our British strawberry season, see page 22.…

good to share

Take the plunge We can’t go to the London Aquarium at the moment – but why not let it come to you? The aquarium has captured fabulous footage of some of its most popular marine creatures, including jellyfish, octopuses, piranhas, sea turtles and sharks, and is making these extraordinary, atmospheric videos available to use as backgrounds on the video conferencing app Zoom, which many of us are using to call loved ones. The Aquarist team will also be live-streaming from different areas of the aquarium each week. To find out more, go to visitsealife.com/london/zoom PERFECT FOR FAMILIES The Royal Mint Experience in South Wales has announced a range of free interactive events to help keep young people entertained, including a virtual tour of their exhibition, interactive storytelling sessions and even a virtual Spy…

what you’re wearing

VANESSA NORTHAM, 60 Tell us about your look I like dresses and skirts with a modern twist. This dress is from Hobbs and is great for smarter occasions. The wedges are LK Bennett. For everyday, I usually wear maxi dresses or long skirts with trainers or FitFlops. I’ve always loved clothes and have quite a collection. And the best bit of your body? I still have a waist! KIRSTY JONES, 36 Tell us about your look I’m really into floaty midi dresses. They’re just so easy to wear. This green floral print is from Zara. I usually accessorise with delicate necklaces. These were a gift. My bag is H&M and my sandals are New Look. I love shopping on the high street. My favourite store has to be & Other Stories. And the best bit of your body? My…

‘i really don’t feel my age!’

She may have turned 80 earlier this year, but perennially youthful and elegant TV presenter Gloria Hunniford brushes off her landmark birthday. She smiles, ‘I don’t feel my age at all – I try not to think about it. I think I am just going to forget the figure eight! ‘I suppose I don’t feel bad about getting older because I’ve always worked and I’m still working.’ ‘It’s been so hard not to hug my grandchildren’ A presenter on BBC1’s Rip Off Britain and a Loose Women panellist on ITV, Gloria says, ‘When I was growing up, my parents taught me I could do anything I wanted if I put my mind to it. I’ve lived my life by that. I feel I’ve had many lives and I’ve been so lucky.’ The proud mum and…

brilliant book shops

In this strange era, many of us have been ordering our books online. But looking ahead, it’s good to imagine exploring the shelves of an interesting bookshop once more. So here are some great UK bookstores, each located in an unusual building. Here’s to idle browsing in better times, as well as supporting independent shops on our high street! Much Ado Books Alfriston, East Sussex A renovated builder’s yard, complete with a barn, a shepherd’s hut and a garden, is the home of the charming Much Ado Books. It’s in the county where two members of the Bloomsbury Set – Virginia Woolf and Vanessa Bell – lived, so it focuses on the group. It also has plenty on art and artists, such as Eric Ravilious and Edward Bawden. ✣ muchadobooks.com Word on the Water Regent’s Canal,…
