In this issue of Saga Magazine : The November issue of Saga Magazine features the noteworthy pianist and bandleader Jools Holland. The ever-chirpy, cheeky chappie may have humble London roots, but these days he mingles with pop royalty, knows Prince Charles and lives next door to Buckingham Palace. What’s more, next year he will be mingling with the guests on Saga’s new ship Spirit of Discovery, where he’ll be playing a few on-board gigs.
Playing of another kind is all too familiar to our later-life, fabulous foster carers, who welcome disadvantaged children and teenagers into their homes – and hearts. It’s a challenge, to be sure, but one they find richly rewarding. Plus, elsewhere, we commemorate the centenary of the First World War by looking at some of the extraordinary legacies of that conflict: women no longer being confined to the home, medical advances, culinary changes, even the evolution of language itself.
In our money section Paul Lewis examines why, for the vast majority of people, setting up a trust to reduce inheritance tax is not such a smart idea. And in our health pages we look at autoimmune diseases and have a cautionary tale of the dangers of carbon monoxide poisoning.
All that, plus our regular round-up of the arts, family dilemmas solved by Jo Brand, Dr Mark Porter’s Q&As, our £100 prize crosswords, and a last laugh with radio DJ Mark Radcliffe.
