In this issue of Saga Magazine : Get 2015 off to a great start with the inspiration-packed January issue of Saga Magazine. If your New Year resolution is to be more active, you can take heart from our impressive older athletes who prove age is no barrier to physical prowess. One took up marathon running at 89, and is still doing 10km races at 103! If you’re not quite up to that, our health pages have simple strategies to get you started, which will improve your day-to-day life now and in the future. If what would really improve your life is finding love, however, our single sexagenarian’s online dating adventure should encourage you to be brave and give it a go.
Bette Midler is adored by millions and fans are in for a treat as the fizzing, feisty showgal is our celebrity interview – who’d have thought she’d keep chickens? Or if rock music is more your bag, you won’t want to miss our feature on why all the not-so-young dudes have swapped muddy fields for festivals at Butlin’s: Hawkwind, Sweet, Wishbone Ash – they’re all there, having a Hi-de-high old time.
Another surprise hit is the Dalemain Marmalade Awards, started in Cumbria as a bit of fun and now attracting thousands of entries each year. Without a shred of doubt, you’ll be inspired to get that preserving pan out… In fact, ‘make your own marmalade’ would have made a fine addition to the 50 pocket-sized adventures Claire Potter gave her husband for his 50th birthday. From skinny-dipping to doing a Ceroc dance class, it was the ultimate gift that kept on giving.
All that, plus out Essential Almanac for 2015 outlining all the events and anniversaries you won’t want to miss, and our unrivalled coverage of the arts, money, health, gardening, food, drink, travel, and all the things that matter to the over-fifties.
