In this issue of Saga Magazine : The August issue of Saga Magazine is a very special one, celebrating the launch of our fabulous new ship, Spirit of Discovery. The ship’s godmother, HRH The Duchess of Cornwall, talks to us about her love of sailing, and her sadness at the plight of the many lonely older people in Britain. That’s why she’s proud to be patron of The Silver Line charity.
We have a profile of the much-loved Olivia Colman, soon to be seen playing Queen Elizabeth II in Netflix’s next series of The Crown, and acting royalty in her own right. And we meet the millionaire property wheeler-dealer spending his ill-gotten gains on his mission to save our beautiful British butterflies.
Can you believe it’s 50 years since Woodstock? We take a trip down a typically muddy memory lane and examine how that first outdoor gathering of music fans blossomed into today’s thriving festival culture. If you’re revelling in your retirement, you may have happily left the nine-to-five work culture behind. However, more and more retired people are dusting off their suits and choosing to return to earning a living. We find out why.
All that, plus Jeremy Paxman’s amusing muses, our new armchair sports column, cool summer clothes, a dementia carer’s guide from someone who’s been there, harnessing the power of your mind rather than taking painkillers, a mini-interview with Nigel Slater, Dr Mark Porter’s health Q&As, Paul Lewis’s tips on cutting your inheritance bill, a short story from Elizabeth Buchan, plus our £250 crossword. We hope you enjoy the issue!
