In this issue of Saga Magazine : Our cover star, Joanna Lumley, never seems to be short of absolutely fabulous new adventures. This month sees the launch of her most challenging travelogue to date, in which she follows in the footsteps of Marco Polo and a million ancient traders on the Silk Road, and she’s also about to embark on a one-woman nationwide tour, telling anecdotes about her glittering career and the many superstars with whom she’s rubbed shoulders.
Also embracing new challenges are our three intrepid volunteers, who are mentoring children in South Africa, helping in a monkey sanctuary in the Amazonian rainforest and building homes where they’re most needed around the world.
Well, that would be one way of escaping from nightmare neighbours, I suppose. Less drastic measures for dealing with the nuisance of next-door’s noise, rubbish and other common complaints are also addressed this month.
On the financial front, Paul Lewis summarises the range of disability benefits that might be available to you. And In our health pages, we examine how to protect yourself from hearing loss, spot the signs of a detached retina, eat to beat high blood pressure and get fit without going near a gym.
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 a last laugh with our new guest columnist Alexander Armstrong.
