Take a look at what’s inside…

Bake It Pink…

Bake sales aren’t so straightforward this year – but these fab recipes will inspire you to get creative in a good cause! You could take orders and deliver boxes of cakes to others’ homes. Or have an outdoor stall with ready wrapped selections. Alternatively invite a handful of people to get together safely, feast on your baking and each make a donation. Together we can make a difference!

Plus Dr Sarah Jarvis has wise advice on using painkillers.

Escape Into A World Of Fiction

Switch off from reality for a while. Lose yourself in our mysterious new serial Finders Keepers, by H. Johnson-Mack, sumptuously illustrated by André Leonard. There are three wonderful short stories too… You’ll agree it’s time for a change in Little Miss Cautious. A Labour Of Love is a tale of tender understanding while Empty Nest offers a delightfully original take on a familiar situation.

Famous, Friendly Faces

You can hardly move without bumping into a celebrity in this week’s magazine! We chat to cover girl Alison Steadman, the smart, funny Dara O’Briain and Countdown‘s quietly witty Richard Osman. Plus we take an affectionate look back at the careers of Dame Julie Andrews (appropriately for this issue, wearing pink) and Hollywood great Stewart Granger. Don’t miss it!

I've worked on a variety of regional newspapers and national magazines. My Weekly and Your Best Ever Christmas are fantastic, warm-hearted brands with an amazing, talented team. I'm a sub-editor and particularly love working on cookery, fiction and advice pages - I feel I should know all the secrets of eternal life, health and happiness by now, but hey, we all need that regular reminder!
