In this issue of Saga Magazine : Feisty, fabulous Maureen Lipman is the cover star of the July issue of Saga Magazine. The actress and writer is currently penning her one-woman show for the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, which as usual will turn life’s minor peculiarities into laugh-out-loud moments. Well known for her forthright opinions and adopting causes, here she reveals her softer side and says she’s not the tough cookie many imagine.
Two genuinely tough guys feature in our article about those who selflessly come to our aid when we’re in danger on land or sea. Meet an RNLI lifeboatman and a mountain rescue volunteer who both first got involved when they were past 50. And just as age has no bearing on bravery, it’s also no barrier to happy house-sharing with the younger generation. Many people in their twenties struggle to find affordable accommodation, and many older home-owners have spare rooms and could do with some extra cash. Put the two together and everybody’s happy… One no-longer-lonely widower and his two young ballroom-dancing housemates explain why it works for them.
And on the financial front, Paul Lewis looks at how you can make sure your retirement funds will last as long as you do.
All that, plus our regular round-up of the arts, relationship dilemmas solved by Jo Brand, Dr Mark Porter’s Q&As, our £100 prize crosswords and Bill Bailey on how he once boarded a plane to a barrage of jeers and catcalls from the other passengers.
