In this issue of Saga Magazine : The February issue of Saga Magazine is packed with inspiration and information. The adventurer and yachtsman Sir Robin Knox-Johnston has no intention of dropping anchor anytime soon. Fifty years after becoming the first solo sailor to navigate the globe non-stop, and with a film about the event about to be released, he reflects on his extraordinary life on the ocean wave.
Just as pioneering in her own way is Girlsin Taylor, who left her home in Trinidad in 1963 to cross the Atlantic in answer to then health minister Enoch Powell’s plea for health professionals to swell the ranks of our struggling NHS. As a new series of Call the Midwife returns featuring a similar Caribbean character, Girlsin’s real-life tales of what it was really like to settle in Britain and work as a midwife are riveting. If you’re interested in exploring your own family’s past, don’t miss our easy-to-follow, step-by-step guide to starting your own family tree.
And no February issue would be complete without some romance for Valentine’s Day. So enjoy our readers’ funny, heartwarming stories of how they first met the love of their life. Though going into business with your partner might not suit everyone, you can also meet the later-life entrepreneurs who have done just that and are finding it twice the fun.
Plus our invaluable money advice from Paul Lewis and Annie Shaw, health problems diagnosed by Dr Mark Porter, relationship dilemmas resolved by Jo Brand, expert travel advice, our £100 prize crosswords and a last laugh with Bill Bailey.
