In this issue of Saga Magazine : April may be best known for its showers, but this month’s issue of Saga Magazine is a veritable ray of sunshine, guaranteed to lift the spirits. Our cover star is the extraordinary Honor Blackman – soon to be seen in a new TV sitcom. She’s as feisty and fabulous at nearly 90 as when she played Bond girl Pussy Galore and Avenger Cathy Gale. You can feast your eyes on the most gorgeous wildflower meadows on the planet, then get a glimpse into the hidden lives of widows in Uttar Pradesh. After years of stigma and seclusion, the photographs of them joining in the Hindu Holi festival of colour are a joy to behold. Closer to home, we show how you too could enrich your life and increase your happiness. Years of acquiring more and more material things are ultimately ‘stuffocating’, but decluttering is easy when you know how.
With the general election fast approaching, we asked a panel of big hitters from the world of people over 50 – including Dame Joan Bakewell, Dr Ros Altmann, Paul Lewis, Angela Rippon and Dame Esther Rantzen – to reveal the issues they’d like to see tackled by the next government. From tax and benefits to the employment concerns of older workers, the importance of joined-up health and social care to the need to combat loneliness, fair deals for savers and pension iniquities, it’s required reading right now.
All this, plus our unrivalled coverage of the arts, money, health, gardening, food and drink, travel, and all the things that matter to the over-50s.
