welcome to the issue

IN THE EARLY days of lockdown, we started a WhatsApp group with a number of readers so we could ask them about their daily fears, concerns and changing habits. It’s become an incredible community of women whose insight has helped shape the pages you read today – not least their views on the Great British high street (thanks to those who’ve taken part!). Hearing them talk about their ‘pick-me-up’ purchases and ‘re-entry’ outfits was a reminder that finding the perfect new addition for your wardrobe isn’t perfunctory – it’s often deeply emotional. And reading the stories of shopkeepers (page 40) shows the other side of the picture: local shops, crucial for our communities, are struggling. It’s in our interests we help them. Enjoy the issue. @hattie_brett / feedback@graziamagazine.co.uk PS The Covid…

over to you...

Have your say… Email us at feedback@graziamagazine.co.uk Find us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram @GraziaUK STUDENT NEGLECT I read Confined to halls and £9K a year for an online degree (19 Oct) and thought of my sister who is in her first year of uni, living in student digs and receiving lessons online. She has already caught Covid-19 and is self-isolating. The university encourages students to be in halls or digs, obviously to help landlords out, but honestly, my sister would have been better at home, still doing her lessons online, for the time being at a reduced cost. Student welfare has been disregarded and unis are scrambling around to ensure they don’t lose money – meanwhile, the students they rely on for this income are being wilfully neglected. Amanda DON’T FORGET CARERS! While…

BRAVERY IN HER GRIEF I could identify with ‘Chrissy sharing her baby loss will help other women’ (19 Oct). I may be one of your oldest readers (94) but I can still remember as if it were yesterday when my third son was stillborn 66 years ago. In those days no one encouraged you to hold your baby if he had died – he was taken away and I never saw him again. In the aftermath of losing Stephen, the thing that helped me most was isolating myself. My husband and I cocooned ourselves at home. People deal with grief in different ways. But my heart goes out to Chrissy Tiegen. If sharing her baby loss on Instagram has helped other women, she should be commended for being brave enough to…

Keep dancing, Fatima, and follow your dream “You probably saw the recent iterations of the Government’s ‘Rethink. Reskill. Reboot’ campaign, which seemed to be encouraging people in the arts to consider a career change. The poster showed ballet dancer ‘Fatima’ with the caption, ‘Fatima’s next job could be in cyber. (She just doesn’t know it yet.)’ Thousands shared it on social media in rage; others posted parodies. We hope it didn’t encourage anyone in the arts to give up on their dream; great art, TV, film, music, dance and theatre (streamed to our devices) is what’s getting us through right now. The arts are vital and should be valued and protected so that, when all this is over, there’s a stage for people to return to.”…

is mercury retrograde – or are you just being ridiculous?

IT IS WHILE READING a recentish report by the Office for National Statistics – which found that, far from being unified against the big C, the UK is now more divided than it has ever been; more, even, than in the darkest days of Brexit – that Mercury being retrograde blows up. Oh, chill: not literally . If Mercury were to blow up in one of those periods when, if viewed from the Earth it gives the impression of travelling backwards, an illusion assumed by some to bestow a spate of bad luck ’pon all humanity… Well. You’d have heard about it by now. It wouldn’t be me telling you, would it? No. It was an argument concerning the validity of that belief that blew up – as they are wont to…

1. New in JIN HA Plays Augie Jeong, on-off love interest for Anna Kendrick’s Darby Carter in the really very delicious Love Life (iPlayer); and a definite POLI (person of lustful interest) in his own right. 2. New in THE YOUNG OFFENDERS Knocking around since 2018, but we’ve only just discovered them, so chances are, lots of you haven’t yet. The joy, people! Tinged with sadness. And truth. And love. iPlayer; you’re welcome. 6. Non-mover TOM DALEY Showcasing the full range of his own knitwear on Instagram, including: a tea cosy, a poncho for his son, and an epic jumper for himself. Masterfully done. 7. New in T’NIA MILLER Delivering strong work in Netflix’s The Haunting Of Bly Manor. We’re big fans of her jawline and her oeuvre, first glimpsed (by us, anyway) in Years And Years, then Sex Education. 8. Down CARDI…
