In this issue of Saga Magazine : As the warmer weather lures us away from the cosy central heating and all-too-comfy sofa, the April issue of Saga Magazine has a distinctly outdoorsy feel, with a round-up of charity walks to get you putting your best foot forward, wheelbarrow-loads of gardening advice and the launch of our brand new Saga Garden Centre. Also, writer Sue Arnold tells us how she fought back from losing almost all her eyesight by planting her garden full of white flowers.

Our celebrity interview is the passionate broadcaster and food campaigner Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall, who’s on the warpath against waste – and championing wonky veg. Plus, we have a fantastic reader offer to attend a River Cottage cookery course. If drink’s more your thing, we reveal the courses at Plumpton College in East Sussex that are launching second careers in the wine trade for many over-50s.

To celebrate the Queen’s 90th birthday, we’ve gathered together nine other Elizabeths with decade-busting birthdays this year to muse on being ‘Queen for a day’, share their hopes and reflect on their lives. We also report on a fascinating survey that has tracked the lives of thousands of British children born in one week in 1946, which is still influencing our lives today.

All that, plus our £1,000 prize crossword, money-saving tips as well as reader offers, and our unrivalled coverage of money, health, food, travel and all the things that matter to the over-50s.
