My Weekly Latest Issue May 18


my weekly latest issue May 18 with Jenny Ryan and Beans Bonanza cookery

My Weekly editor Stuart JohnstoneI am lucky enough to live about 10 minutes from the beach and, weather permitting, I walk along it most days for exercise. Despite being a big fan of TV show The Detectorists, I never thought for a second that I may be walking across some hidden treasures on my daily stroll! According to this week’s beachcombing feature (p28), I could well be missing out. There are all sorts of weird and wonderful things to be found, and while most of it won’t earn you a fortune, there is a wealth of fun to be had. If you try it out, please do send us a photo of your “treasures”! Enjoy the issue and have a great week.

Welcome Wildlife

Our garden expert Susie White is a great advocate of natural gardening and encouraging wildlife. This week she explains how we can all be more friendly to helpful native species, including the less pretty ones like beetles and frogs, but guess what – they both eat slugs! It could be the best thing you can do for your vegetables. Also this week we hear from a new allotment owner in Sowing The Seeds Of Friendship.

The Art Of Beachcombing

Of course a trip to the beach these days often involves an element of litter picking, and you can really help to make a difference there. However having done that, there are some wonderful treasures to look out for! Our lovely feature will have you heading for the coast at the first opportunity.

The Gentle Touch

Remember your mother tugging impatiently at your half-brushed hair, but telling you not to rub your eyes? We’ve put together some do’s and don’ts on treating ourselves more gently, particularly as we mature. Also in our latest issue, Dr Sarah Jarvis talks about blood clots and how to reduce our risk.

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!
