In this issue of Saga Magazine : We’ve got everything under the sun packed into our September issue – a last hurrah for summer! We’re giving you two celebrities for the price of one: the multi-talented and ever-charming Michael Palin tells us how the Pythons drive one another mad and why – sorry, ladies – he’s not up for ‘playing away’, and the down-to-earth Dame Helen Mirren talks about love, life… and her passion for pomegranate trees.

We discover how the D-Day landings were the start of a friendship between a French and a British family that continues even now. And we meet three volunteers who’ve found they gain as much as they give from their work with disadvantaged children. If you’re up for the challenge, we suggest organisations and charities that would love to hear from you. Another worthwhile challenge is capturing the wealth of creatures on our doorstep with a camera. For inspiration, turn to our stunning images from the British Wildlife Photographer of the Year Awards.

If you’re more in need of winding down, however, why not sharpen your pencils and join in the latest craze: colouring books for adults. We’re not kidding! It’s the latest way to beat stress. And what better way to relax in the garden than with our exclusive preview of Lynne Truss’s new BBC Radio 4 series – a chortlingly funny account of what a tadpole might think about all day. When it’s time to retreat indoors, brighten your day with a peek into the kaleidoscopically colourful home of ceramicist Mary Rose Young.

All that, plus our unrivalled coverage of the arts, money, health, gardening, food and drink, travel and all the things that matter to the over-50s.
