In this issue of Saga Magazine : The July issue of Saga Magazine is full of surprises. Who’d have thought that our cover star, the golden girl of baking Jane Asher – who looks like butter wouldn’t melt in her mouth – would turn out to be so feisty and such fun. As she returns to treading the boards with her daughter on the London stage, she reveals her dislike of the showbiz bubble and of religion, and her abiding love of Crossroads. Men with an enduring passion for the beautiful game will be delighted to find our feature on walking football: the latest craze that allows the over-50s to dust off their boots and again enjoy the camaraderie of taking part in a local league. Meanwhile, Rolling Stone Ronnie Wood has dusted off his teenage diary to give us a peek into his early guitars-and-girls rock years. And we meet the Double-Decker Club, also turning the clock back to the Sixties, who share their reminiscences of touring Europe Summer Holiday-style on an old red London bus. If you’re expecting tales of debauchery and free love, you’ll be disappointed: they had a high old time, but it was all good, clean fun.
Back in the present, we meet the man with a retro diner, shortlisted for Shed of the Year, at the bottom of his garden. And tour a family-run organic herb farm now exporting its botanical beauty products from the Welsh Borders all the way to Japan. If you’ve a business idea you’d like to get off the ground – or spare cash you’d like to invest in a new venture – don’t miss our feature on crowdfunding.
All that, plus the wit and wisdom of our regular columnists – including Lynne Truss and Paul Lewis – just part of our unrivalled coverage of the arts, money, health, gardening, food and drink, travel and all the things that matter to you.
