he rain held off on Saturday for the launch of Christopher’s new Menu.

The Tea Rooms and Café, managed by mother and daughter team Sue and Vicki were supported by the Jolly Fisherman, the Mayor of Skegness and the Ambassadors. There were lots of exciting and inviting foods and drinks for visitors to sample, lush whipped cream hot chocolates with sprinkles, the fabulous range of Ringtons teas, and not forgetting the home made cheese cakes, Aero bubbles and Maltesers coming strong favourites with all concerned.

New menu launch Vicki and Sue, together with their amazing team, look forward to seeing you in their cosy team rooms in the future, whether it be popping in for a quick cuppa to break up a busy days shopping, or to while away an afternoon, sitting and relaxing sampling the luxuries from their new menu.

Pets corner

Your dog’s body language What is your dog trying to tell you? Dogs have a language that allows them to communicate their emotional state and their intentions to others around them. Although dogs do use sounds and signals, much of the information that they send is through their body language, specifically their facial expressions and body postures.

Understanding what your dog is saying can give you a lot of useful information, such as when your dog is nervous about what is going on or when your dog is edgy and might be ready to snap at someone. You do have to look at the dog’s face and his whole body. This seven-point guide will help you interpret the most important messages your dog is sending you.

1. Relaxed - approachable

In association with

Pets & Aquatics

4. Fearful and aggressive Hackles raised

Pupils dilated

Tail between legs

Lips curled, teeth visible

This dog is frightened but is not submissive and may attack if pressed. A dog will generally give these signals when he is directly facing the individual who is threatening him.

5. Stressed and distressed Body low

Mouth slightly open, exposing tongue

Tail down and relaxed

Relaxed stance, feet flat

This dog is relaxed and reasonably content, unconcerned and unthreatened by any activity in his immediate environment and is usually approachable.

Pupils dilated Rapid panting, mouth corners back

Tail down

Sweating through paw pads

This dog is under either social or environmental stress. These signals, however, are a general “broadcast” of his state of mind and are not being specifically addressed to any other individual.

6. Extreme fear- total submission Lying back

2. Alert - checking things out

Eyes blinking Ears flat

Closed mouth Standing on toes, leaning slightly forward

Slight wagging

If the dog has detected something of interest or something unknown, these signals show that he is now alert and paying attention while assessing the situation to determine if there is any threat or if any action should be taken.

3. Dominant and aggressive

Forward leaning, stiff-legged

Lips curled

This is a very dominant and confident animal. Here he is not only expressing his social dominance, but also threatening that he will act aggressively if challenged.

10

This dog is indicating total surrender and submission. He is trying to say that he accepts his lower status by grovelling before a higher ranking or threatening individual in the hopes of avoiding a physical confrontation.

7. Playfulness

Tail up, waving more than wagging Ears up

Back of body raised (a temporary stance, usually followed by running around)

Pupils dilated Front of body lowered

Ears forward, slightly apart Teeth/gums visible

Head turned to side Tongue licking

Staring eyes

Ears forward, twitching Horizontal tail

Hackles raised

Ears back

Head high

Ears upright

Tail raised & bristling

Ears back

Body low

Here we have the basic invitation to play. It may be accompanied by excited barking or playful attacks and retreats. This set of signals may be used as a sort of “punctuation mark” to indicate that any previous rough behaviour was not meant as a threat or a challenge.

Pets corner

In association with

Pet rabbits

Pets & Aquatics

Rabbits make wonderful indoor pets. They are adorable and brimming with personality. But before you swoop into the shelter and pick out a cutie, there are a few things you should know to ensure a rabbit is right for you and your family.

Finances

Owning a pet rabbit comes with added financial responsibility. Be prepared to spend money up front on the adoption fee, as well as housing/food/bunny proofing supplies. In addition, be sure you’ll be able to afford ongoing costs for a bunny on food, litter, and vet bills (including spay/neuter fees).

Bunny housing

Rabbits are social animals. The location of a rabbit’s housing area within your home (which can take the form of a puppy pen, a large cage, or just an area with the food, litter boxes, and cardboard castles if the bunny is free reign) is an extremely important consideration. You’ll have to make sure the rabbit has a place to relax by himself but is not completely secluded from the family. Rabbits need social interaction, plenty of exercise, and a lot of distraction.

Bunny proofing

If the bunny will have free reign in the house/apartment/room, you will absolutely need to bunny proof the area. Even if you keep the bunny in a cage or puppy pen, you still will need to safeguard your home when you let the rabbit out for supervised exercise. Rabbits are very curious and persistent creatures. They will find a way to get into your computer cables, wires, molding, couch piping, slightly frayed rug, etc. They will eat your most important documents.

Distraction

Rabbits will get into trouble if they’re bored. They’ll make their own fun chewing your possessions if you don’t provide alternate forms of entertainment. A great diversion for rabbits is a cardboard castle filled with empty toilet paper rolls, old phone books and other paper products you find around the house.

Children and rabbits Rabbits live 10+ years. Adopting a rabbit is a long-term commitment. Rabbits are NOT low maintenance pets. So adopting a bunny should be a family decision. When kids turn 18 and go to college or look for work, it’s important that the rabbit still has a safe, loving home. well-being. The staple of a rabbit’s diet is fibre. Rabbits must have access to unlimited grass hay at all times. It is very important to ensure that hay allergies will not pose a problem for anyone in the household.

Bonding with a bunny

Rabbits can be quite affectionate animals, but personalities can definitely vary from individual to individual. Most rabbits don’t particularly like being held/picked up, and some bunnies are more aloof than others.

Travelling

Rabbits get very stressed out when travelling or when placed in unfamiliar environments, so it’s best to have a good pet sitter on hand to watch the bunny if you go on holiday. If you’re a big jet-setter, with the need or desire to move to various places around the world, rabbit ownership probably isn’t right for you.

Bottom line: Do your research before adding a bunny to your family!

While it’s easy to get swept up in the excitement of getting a pet rabbit, it’s important to first assess whether or not you can truly provide a good home to a bunny.

Nutrition

It’s important to have a good understanding of a rabbit’s nutritional needs throughout his/ her life. Proper nutrition (and in the correct amounts) is vital for a rabbit’s

November Why every family must visit Father Christmas in Lapland - before it’s too late Holiday review

Modern life is full of second chances. From political rehabilitations to second careers to third marriages, mine is Generation Redo – and, to many minds, this represents progress. But in a pleasantly retro way, there remain certain opportunities in life for which there is a window. Between the ages of four and eight, children’s imaginations are primed to accept enchantment. Fairy tales give way to imaginative play before school channels them on to more prosaic paths. And this window is the time to visit elves.

in the heart of the mountainous Pyha-Luosto national park, a 90-minute drive north-east of the Arctic Circle. This was where, according to the British operator Canterbury Travel, we were likely to find the big man with the beard. Here also the daily temperature is between -7 and -10, and daylight comes and goes in less than four hours. Clad head-to-toe in the provided snowsuits and boots, you are launched outside into the darkness each morning with your fellow enthusiasts, after gobbling down decidedly simple and UK child-focused fare, to track down the elusive bearded man via a series of encounters with elves.

In a way that will appeal to characterFather Christmas, as any child could focused young people, the tell you, lives with his wife search has a well-developed and a gaggle of elves in narrative and a rousing a snow-covered cabin theme song – with where he builds any dance moves – which toy a child desires. your group of 20 The great thing about or so families will Father Christmas, sing at least once my daughter has per hour for the observed, is that you duration of your stay. don’t have to pay him Will Snowy Bowie, the back: anything you ask charming sprite in charge for, he’ll give you.

Peppered throughout the organised search each day are splendid outdoor activities. At the reindeer camp, an actual Finnish man (a rarity on this trip), decked out in traditional furs, teaches children about his way of life as a reindeer herder. After you feed the deer by hand, you take an eerily silent trip on a reindeer-pulled caravan of sleighs – through spectacular woods, perhaps pausing in the quiet to wonder whether a reindeer skin would really suit your bedroom back at home.

by Sally Peck There are Ski-Doos available for adult-led trips (you drive and child hops on the back); but there are also child-sized Ski-Doos (my four-year-old was a daredevil, but the oodles of engaged, chirpy staff kept safety and communication at the top of the agenda). While all of these activities require taking turns, those waiting are entertained, having snowball fights or tobogganing with yet more sparkly elves.

With so many similar holidays on the market, it can be difficult to choose the right approach for your child. Many operators, including Canterbury, offer one-day trips but I found that the luxury of four days allowed for a full exploration of this mystical land of beautiful darkness. Canterbury’s itinerary, and inventive character-led narrative, had a wild appeal for my daughter, whose love for performance and drama knows no bounds. One of the great joys of having children is allowing them to restore innocence and optimism in adults – and at no time of the year does this happen more than at Christmas. It cultivates the sort of wonder that embodies the Christmas spirit. A video I recorded on my phone during our hunt for Santa betrays this: the children sing of their search with gusto. But the parents in the background are also singing with childish abandon – for Christmas, after all, is all about the child. And the pinnacle of the trip – a private audience with Santa – is as charming and magical as any child would wish.

The highlight of the activities is the husky ride. A pack of six dogs, so strong that they could probably move a house, pull your child in a sleigh while you stand at the back of the sleigh, “driving” at breakneck speed through a snow-covered pine forest, in a scene more romantically wintry than any other I can imagine. The mission of finding Father Christmas is never off the agenda; each time you board the coach (you drive to every single activity, which grows wearisome) you sing the Santa song, led by your two abnormally kind and spirited camp counsellors.

The details Canterbury Travel (santa-holidays.com) offers a three-night Magical Interlude trip, with flights from Gatwick and Manchester, from £5,308 for a family of four sharing a log cabin. The price includes return flights, all transport, full room and board and all activities. Spots book up quickly, and most tours are full by mid-October.

For sleeping, there’s a nondescript corporate-feeling hotel, or picturesque log cabins of widely varying decorative order (each is individually owned and, while some were luxurious, ours was of the most basic variety, with sheets whose purchase must predate my birth). While all meals are included, I would recommend skipping the dull buffet at the hotel restaurant and heading across the road to the Ravintola Vaisko, which serves reindeer in a variety of ways and has a pleasant wine list with Scandinavian prices. After a lunch of jacket potatoes with beans while out on the search, you’ll want something reasonable – plus, the chic wooden interior of Ravintola Vaisko will go some way to resetting the trip’s parent-child balance.

Raising awareness for Peritonitis In loving memory of Jasmin Beever

This article is with kind permission of Jasmine’s family and supporters to raise awareness of this condition. Sadly on Thursday, 7th September 2017 a young 16 year old Skegness girl, Jasmine Beever suddenly and tragically passed away. The grieving family lost their daughter to a rare condition called Peritonitis. Jasmine’s innocent habit of sucking and chewing her hair proved fatal and investigations found that this was due to a giant hair-ball that had lodged in the stomach and had become infected – damaging her vital organs. Jasmine’s family want to spread the message about how dangerous the habit of sucking hair can be, to save other families going through the same heartache. Anyone that knew Jasmine knew what a wonderful, caring girl she was. She had a real zest for Life. There was never a gloomy face around because she would go out of her way to make people smile, even those she didn’t know. She would always offer a helping hand for anyone that was struggling or offer her shoulder and a hug to anyone that was having a bad day. Jasmine’s best friend Billie-Jo Ashwell, also 16, decided to take on the amazing and selfless act of fundraising to try and unburden some of the financial strain that the family were going through at such a sad and difficult time. Jasmine’s motto in life was “Sometimes one act

of kindness is all it takes to give someone hope again.” How very true this was! Through numerous fundraising ideas, an incredible amount of £4,715.82 was raised to support the family who were dealt a double blow this year, as only weeks earlier, they had buried Jasmine’s granddad. Friends and close friends of the family wish to thank the Skegness public, businesses and individuals sincerely, including kind donations that came from further afield, including a very generous donation from a gentleman in Ohio, called Kurt Deimer, who donated a sum of £2,000 after news of Jasmine’s rare, fatal condition had spread globally.

Recipe of the month

November

Ingredients 80g soft dark brown sugar 1 tbsp sea salt 1 tbsp smoked paprika 1 cinnamon stick 1 tbsp mustard powder Large pinch of crushed dried chillies 1 tablespoon coriander seeds 1 clove garlic, crushed 20g fresh root ginger, peeled and finely chopped 1 shoulder of pork (about 1.2kg with bone), deboned and fat left on 700ml fresh unsweetened apple juice 250ml cold water 500g Shortcrust Pastry Fresh cracked black pepper, to taste

..... ...

Us UU

c

For the pumpkin mash

Pulled pork and pumpkin pies (serves 6) First make the marinade for the pulled pork pies. Use a pestle and mortar to grind together the dark brown sugar, salt, smoked paprika, cinnamon stick, mustard powder, crushed dried chillies, coriander seeds, garlic, root ginger and some black pepper, to form a spreadable paste. Spread the spice paste all over the pork shoulder, rubbing it in well with your hands. Place the pork in a dish, cover with cling film and leave to marinate in the fridge overnight. The next day, finish making the pulled pork pies. Pre-heat the oven to 150°C (Gas Mark 2). Place the marinated pork, fat-side up, on a wire rack positioned over a roasting tin, then pour the apple juice and water into the tin and loosely cover the whole thing with a tent of foil (it’s a good idea to rub a little butter on the inside of the foil to prevent it from sticking to the meat). Cook in the oven for about 4½ hours or until cooked and tender. Meanwhile prepare the pumpkin mash. Cut the pumpkin in half and remove and discard the seeds, placing the pumpkin halves on a large piece of foil. Season the cut sides with salt and pepper and nutmeg, then sprinkle over the light brown sugar. Divide the butter in half and place one half in the centre of each pumpkin half. Fold the edges of the foil over the top and seal together to make a parcel, then transfer to a baking tray. Roast the pumpkin in the same oven as the pork for the last 50 minutes of the pork’s cooking time, or until the pumpkin is soft. Remove the pumpkin from the oven and let it cool for 5 minutes, then use a spoon to scrape out all the flesh from the skin into a bowl and mash the flesh well with a fork until smooth (discard the skin).

20

1 pumpkin (900g-1kg total weight) Freshly grated nutmeg, to taste 2 teaspoons soft light brown sugar 50g unsalted butter Sea salt, to taste

Taste and adjust the seasoning, if necesary. Set aside and keep warm. Remove the pork from the oven and then increase the oven temperature to 200°C (Gas Mark 6). Remove the foil, then pour the pork’s cooking liquid into a bowl and set aside. Transfer the pork to a clean baking tray and return to the oven for about 30 minutes or until the fat has turned golden brown and the meat is succulent, moist and flaky. Remove from the oven and leave the pork to rest for 20 minutes, then finely flake the cooked meat into a bowl. Meanwhile, lightly grease six 10 x 8cm round moulds (each mould about 300ml volume) - I find small pudding basins work best. Roll out the shortcrust pastry on a lightly floured work surface to 3-4mm thickness and cut out six 16cm rounds, then use them to line the prepared moulds. Leave to rest in the fridge for about 30 minutes or until needed. To finish the pies, combine the pulled pork meat with its reserved cooking liquid and taste and adjust the seasoning, if necessary. Spoon the pork mixture into the pastry-lined moulds, filling each mould about three-quarters full. Spoon the warm mashed pumpkin on top of the pulled pork mixture, dividing it equally between the moulds. Bake the pies in the oven for 25-30 minutes or until the pastry is cooked through and the pumpkin tops are golden brown. Remove from the oven and let the pies rest in the moulds for 10 minutes before carefully turning them out on to serving plates (you may need to loosen them around the edges with a butter knife). Serve immediately with buttered new potatoes and steamed seasonal greens.

Beauty tips

November

The beautiful unique

We all try to stick to basic rules when applying make-up so we can look our best and make the most of our features, but what if our natural features don’t allow us to? Here are a couple you might be familiar with... An uneven lip line? It’s more common than you think. A lip pencil is essential to draw in a false line and you can go higher or lower than the natural line to even out the balance. If lower you may still see natural lip colour so you will need to cover it with a concealer, but if it’s higher you will need to use a bold lip colour inside the lip line to match both skin and lips. A small percentage of people have different colour eyes, i.e. one brown and one blue, so what then? The best way to enhance this fabulous and unusual feature would be to choose colours that suit both eye colours. The choice is restricted but there will still be shades that will make both eyes look amazing! Brown and blue eyes = lilacs and violets/golds and bronzes; blue and green eyes = greys and silvers/blues and greens. There is a basic rule for make-up; the darker it is, the less it will stand out. Highlighting will enhance any facial feature. Always take special care of your eyes, using only the best quality make-up and products. Remove eye make-up every night with Dermalogica soothing eye make-up remover and enhance your natural sparkle day or night with “Sparkling Eye Dew” by Optrex!

You could always follow your own rules!!

The range of shades you can purchase is seemingly limitless, with one to suit every type of face and personality. Choosing a colour may reflect on the mood you’re in, and if this is the case then why not take control?

22

If make-up makes you feel good about yourself, I say “Embrace it!” Autumn is here and winter is in the distance, so let’s stay positive about looking our best, shake off your makeup bag, delve in deep and pull out all those colours you haven’t found the courage to try and lets do it together! In my opinion there are no rules to make-up as long as you look and feel good, but try some of these colour combinations to get you started. If you have a medium to pale skin tone try a dark green shadow under and above lashes and line with a fine brush. With a soft brush take the green shadow into the socket line in a sweep and then down to the outer corner slightly beyond and blend on the edge of the lid. Next, use a brown or gold and fill in the rest of the lid, blending as you go. A dark green eye pencil applied in the water line will give intensity – try using a green coat of mascara over black to bring out the colours. For medium to darker skin tones you can follow the same technique but change the colours. Try using dark aubergines and plums for the lash lines and sockets and fill in with pale violet or pink. Adding a little plum colour into dark eyebrows can look fabulous so give it a try! Try a different depth of colour – your everyday eye shadows can give you a different look if you dip your brush into water first! Replace your eyeliner by using this method with a skinny brush around the lash lines! Written by Kate Cheshire

House to home

November

A few easy ways to take the stress out of buying your new home

Scout around for a good solicitor

It’s official - buying a home is one of the most stressful things you’ll ever do, but before you start having a nervous breakdown, take a look at our top tips for making the process as pain-free as possible.

Between us we’ve bought plenty of houses, so we know a thing or two about making the whole thing as stress-free as possible.

Be prepared to compromise

House-hunting can be souldestroying, especially if the supply out there does not meet the demand (a major problem in London). While it’s good to narrow down your search it can make the process very difficult. Think about what your non-negotiables are and be realistic – are you really going to get a family-sized garden in that particular part of the city?

Plan your finances carefully

Your solicitor will be a key person in the process. They should be organised, easily contactable and willing to answer any of your queries. Shop around and find someone good – it’s worth asking family and friends if they have any recommendations.

De-clutter first - pack early

It’s worth having a good look at all your items and thinking hard about what is worth hanging on to and what is worth throwing out. It’s never too early to start de-cluttering. Plus you can sell any nicer items to raise some cash for your upcoming move! You can never be too organised when it comes to packing. Start with the non-essentials and label all the boxes clearly. It’ll make it so much easier when you unpack at the other end.

Buying a home is a costly business. Even if you have budgeted carefully for stamp duty, solicitor’s fees and any selling costs, remember that you will need to pay to move all your items from one place to another. Plus you may have a few nasty surprises.

34

Keep levelheaded

House buying is very stressful so remember to keep level-headed and remain as detached as you possibly can. Even though you may want to plan that fantastic new kitchen extension or the perfect curtains for the bedroom, don’t get too emotionally invested in the early stages. We understand this is easier said than done!

Enough said, this is the new chapter in your life, enjoy it!

Gardening tips for

November

As we put our gardens to bed for the winter, it’s the perfect time to consider how best to improve the soil, provide food and shelter for the wildlife all gardeners depend on, and protect plants and seeds for the future.

Autumn cleaning

Invest time in tidying the garden and clearing the autumn leaves before the snow falls. Time spent outdoors now pays big dividends in spring. You’ll not only shorten your to-do list, you’ll also ward off some pest and disease problems. Pull annuals and add them to the compost pile. For annuals that self-seed, allow seed-laden stems to remain in place through winter unless you plan to sprinkle them elsewhere in the garden. Store breakable items, like terracotta pots, rain gauges and other garden art before hard freezes settle in. Terracotta over winter is fine in an unheated shed or garage. Make sure pots and saucers are dry before storage.

When planting a tree or shrub, get it off to a good start by adding slow acting fertiliser to the planting hole. Soak the plant for an hour or so first in a bucket of water. Once planted, firm it in well using the heels of your feet. This gets rid of air pockets around the roots, which can lead to rot and the plant moving around in the wind. Water your new and relocated plants during dry spells, but avoid watering new plants when it’s frosty.

Gardening tip

Landscape chores

Water any plants you added to the landscape during the previous growing season. Continue to irrigate until the ground freezes if rain is scarce. More plants die during their first winter due to lack of moisture. Add mulch around plantings after the ground freezes. Mulch helps limit soil temperature swings, which can prevent frost heave - where freeze-thaw cycles push plants out of soil. Candidates for frost heave include Heucheras, shallow planted bulbs and perennials added to the landscape late in the season. If roots don’t sink deeply into soil before it freezes, plants can heave. Dig planting holes now for live Christmas trees. Stuff the hole with leaves and cover with a tarpaulin. Store soil you removed from the planting hole in a spot where it won’t freeze.

Get planting in November

It’s a good time for planting roses. They look like twigs in the garden centre at this time of year, but they will look lovely next year with a little care and attention. You can also plant fruit trees and soft fruit ready for next year. Apple, pear and plum trees are in the garden centre now, along with raspberry, blackcurrant and gooseberry bushes. They prefer a sunny position. Plant them now for a ripe harvest next summer.

38

Use a leaf vacuum or blower to remove leaves along foundations. Removing leaves helps eliminate hiding places for pests and rodents that can gain entry to your home. Allow some leaves to remain beneath shrubs to provide vital winter cover for beneficial insects.

Winter pond care

If the pond is stocked with fish and it does freeze over, melt the ice by placing a hot pan on the surface, or install a pond heater or water feature to prevent freezing occurring. Floating a ball on the water in cold weather can also delay freezing. Never smash the ice, as the shock waves can harm fish.

Hang an assortment of bird feeders

Purchase hulled birdseed, such as sunflower hearts, to eliminate mess and try safflower seed to discourage squirrels. Don’t forget that birdseed can attract rodents, from squirrels, to mice, to rats. Store birdseed in tightly sealed, metal containers.

Our readers have their say...

“I have recently been delivered a copy, the second issue, of the new ‘Inside Skegness’ Magazine. Okay, there are many advertisements which I understand and accept as they basically pay for the magazine and keep it free for readers. But I just wanted to say what a great little magazine it is. A nice, easy-to-hold size, the text is not so small that you need a magnifying glass to read it and the content (I’m basing this on Issue 2) is varied, informative and interesting. I just want to say thank you and well done to whoever is behind this publication and long may it continue. I appreciate that it may never get delivered to my street (South Parade), but I now have a list of where I can pick up a copy from in person. Keep up the good work, whoever you are, and well done!”

Motoring review

November

Volvo XC60 T8 plug-in hybrid: is 400bhp and 134.5mpg too good to be true? Never one to shy away from placing ambitious deadlines on highly visible targets, Volvo has the stated aim of not having a single person killed or seriously injured in one of its cars by 2020. Then, as if its engineers were not already frantic enough, in July this year the bosses announced the company would also be going ‘all electric by 2019’. Talk about a full plate. Of course, anybody who read between the lines of Volvo’s press release (or, indeed, further than the headline) would know that the Swedish brand has not decided to do a Tesla and build cars with no internal combustion engines, but simply make public its deadline for including some form of electrification in all of its cars. The result will be a product range that includes at least one fully electric car, plus mild hybrids that are primarily driven by an internal combustion engine but also include a beefedup electrical system to recover energy from the brakes and use it for powering auxiliary functions. Last but not least there will be a range of plug-in hybrids, such as this new XC60 T8.

The XC60 is far from Volvo’s first crack at combining internal combustion with a battery and motor of sufficient strength to power the car for short journeys. Its dieselelectric V60, launched in 2013 and still available to buy today, is interesting if ultimately flawed, while the petrolelectric T8 hybrid version of its highly regarded XC90 SUV has so far defied expectations as far as sales go. It is the XC90’s technology that also underpins its smaller sibling, the XC60. Official tests rate the XC60 T8 at 134.5mpg and corresponding CO2 emissions of 49g/km, which is astonishing for a more than two-tonne SUV, let alone one with a combined power output of 400bhp and a 0-62mph time of 5.2 seconds. The XC60 achieves this by having not only a supercharged and turbocharged 314bhp 2.0-litre petrol engine driving the front wheels, but also an 86bhp electric motor to turn the rears. The latter is powered by a 10.4kWh battery pack (the XC90 makes do with a 9.2kWh equivalent) that can be plugged in and charged to give a pure electric range of up to 28 miles. A full charge takes two and half hours from a dedicated unit, or add another hour or two if you’re using a domestic socket.

Motoring review

November It’s complicated, and then some (can you begin to imagine buying one of these on the used market 15 years from now?), but to drive the T8 mostly takes care of itself. True, the brake pedal has all the consistency of the England cricket team, and the steering is completely numb, but nobody buys a Volvo expecting it to outperform BMW for driver involvement. What you do buy one for, and what the XC60 delivers with aplomb, is comfort, space (for five and their luggage in this case), interior quality, safety and an understated sense of class.

The facts

Volvo XC60 T8 Inscription Pro

Nor should you look at the on-paper stats and expect this SUV to be any kind of high-riding hot rod, because in reality driving with all the systems primed for performance is neither terribly satisfying nor good for battery life. What’s more, the relaxed nature of the eight-speed automatic gearbox makes the kind of sudden bursts of speed an electrified car should be so good at a lot less sudden than you might like. There is an argument that says none of this matters if you are a business owner or company car driver who can benefit from the tax incentives of running a luxury car with such low CO2 emissions, particularly if you commute less than 20 miles each way with a charger at either end. However, the oncoming electrification of cars – and plug-in hybrids such as this XC60 in particular – is going to need to benefit a significantly wider demographic of buyers in a very short timeframe if it is to really catch on. And that’s before any questions are asked about whether the low emissions dream promised by plug-in hybrids in official fuel tests is anywhere close to being realised in day-to-day use. More pressing for Volvo is the realisation that, clever as this T8 hybrid might be, it is the diesel-powered XC60 that remains by some margin the more convincing car.

supercharged four-cylinder engine plus electric motor, eight-speed automatic gearbox, four-wheel drive. Price on sale: From £55,450 (after plug-in car grant) Power/torque: Combined system output 400bhp/472lb ft Top speed: 140mph Acceleration: 0-62mph in 5.2sec Fuel economy: 134.5mpg (EU Combined) C02 emissions: 49g/km VED: £0 first year, £450 for following five years, then £130 Verdict: The XC60 is one of the most pleasant SUVs on sale today, but while adding a petrol-electric drivetrain might make it financially appealing to business users, others are likely to find that a conventional diesel model is still the one to go for as an all-rounder.

Finance

Money saving tips The last year will be remembered for many things, but it won’t go down in history as the most prosperous year for personal finances. With the New Year just around the corner, here are some financial resolutions to help make the most of your cash.

Haggle for broadband, insurance and mobile phone deals

You can simply be saving hundreds of pounds by haggling for your services like broadband and insurance. We recently found the average annual saving made on telecom bills is £156. Before you make the call, quickly make a note of a better deal you’ve seen or spend a few minutes checking a price comparison site. Your current provider is likely to ask you what better deals you’ve seen. Having these details to hand will make them believe you’re prepared to leave, even if you’re not. In most cases, the haggling itself will be quick and easy – no more than a few minutes.

Switch your energy provider

Around 16 million people – over half (58%) of energy customers – are stuck on standard variable tariffs with a ‘Big Six’ provider, the default and usually most expensive tariff. Renters and homeowners with the ‘Big Six’ could save up to £330 a year by moving to the cheapest dual fuel deal on the market this winter. To compare deals visit a comparison site, a transparent and impartial way to compare energy tariffs and find the best gas and electricity supplier.

Keep your travel spending in check

Holidaymakers could save over £100 a week by opting for an overseas spending card or credit card instead of buying currency at the airport. You will find that credit cards or debit cards, such as Halifax Clarity and Metro Bank (credit and debit), or prepaid cards such as Revolut, provide the best value for tourists for a trip within Europe.

48

Savings accounts/ISAs

Take a look at all your savings accounts, ISAs and current accounts. Are they giving you the best return on your money? If not, switch to a better account. If you don’t need instant access to all your savings, consider investing. There is, of course, the risk that your investments will go down as well as up. But in the current market, there’s also a risk of your cash savings being eroded by inflation.

Lifetime ISA

The Lifetime ISA is a new taxfree savings or investments account designed to help under-40s buy their first home or save for retirement, where you can earn up to £32,000 in free cash from the government.

The Lifetime ISA was available from 6 April 2017.

Debt consolidation

If you’re paying interest on your debt, get it moved to a 0% balance-transfer credit card. Some of these charge 0% interest for up to three years, which means you could be saving hundreds of pounds in interest and start paying off your debts. However, it’s important that you clear the debt before the end of the 0% period to avoid being charged at the standard APR – typically around 18.9%.

Stay in/join your company pension scheme

A pension might be the last thing on your mind if you’re in your 20s. In most cases, the government and your employer contribute to your pension. This is the main reason for people joining company pension schemes – it’s like receiving additional pay from your employer. Contributions aren’t liable for income tax, which is another plus. You can usually take some of your workplace pension as a lump sum when you retire. And you can withdraw 25% of that tax-free.

‘There’s never been a better time to take control of your money.’

Where better to stock up on festive cheer than one of the hundreds of amazing Christmas markets to be found popping up all over the country? There are tons of stalls offering up trinkets and treasures for you to wrap under the tree, not to mention the wealth of food pop-ups and mulled wine stands if you need to replenish your energy levels during your Christmas shopping. The popularity of Christmas markets has grown rapidly in recent years, and now almost every major city has a Christmas market of some kind.

Llandudno 16th - 19th November, 2017

Visitors are welcomed to this beautiful Victorian seaside resort and their traditional Christmas Fayre, where you will enjoy cultural entertainment and stroll around more than 165 stalls right in the centre of town. In 2015 they doubled the size of the event, now making it one of the largest Christmas fayres in Wales, attracting more than 35,000 visitors over the 4 days. The fayre gives you an opportunity to experience a variety of products not found in the normal high streets and national retail brands, including quality products from Wales and the rest of the UK and around the world. You can enjoy local Welsh culture together with friendly hospitality and entertainment.

Chester 17th November, 2017 - 7th January 2018

You’re in for a real festive treat in Chester this Christmas, with more than 70 wooden chalets offering lots of festive goodies and gifts - all of which will be wrapped around the Christmas tree in the Town Hall Square in the centre of the city. Oh, and don’t forget to sample the food and drink on offer - it really is something to shout about! There’s also a Real Ale Bar, so if you fancy a tipple you’re in luck - hey, it’s Christmas! Open seven days a week, plenty of time to plan a visit.

Lincoln 7th - 10th December, 2017

A contemporary cathedral city with over 2,000 years of history, Lincoln is the perfect place to visit over the festive period. Take a trip back through time and stroll along the cobbles in the cultural quarter of the city. The medieval square between the Norman castle and magnificent gothic cathedral is the perfect backdrop for the Christmas market. Lincoln Christmas Market has developed dramatically

A little further afield…

If you fancy a trip up to Scotland, Edinburgh has not one, but three Christmas markets for 2017. There’s enough entertainment to keep the whole family occupied all day. There’s Santa Land for the wee bairns, with face painting and Christmas crafts, a European market boasting ‘gastronomic surprises’ and a Scottish market featuring the best local seafood, Scottish brewed beer and traditional jewellery. Head from The Mound along Princes Street Gardens Terrace and around the Scott Monument.

18th November, 2017 - 6th January, 2018

The Frankfurt Christmas Market 2017 in Birmingham city centre is the biggest German market outside of the country itself. With hundreds of stalls in Victoria and Chamberlain square selling filled pretzels, Berlin doughnuts, traditional bier and handmade Christmas decorations, you won’t leave empty handed – or with an empty stomach.

16th November - 24th December, 2017

Another fantastic shopping city, Bath (pictured above) hosts one of the UK’s prettiest Christmas markets, with 200 chalets lining the streets around the Roman Baths and Bath Abbey. Most of the stalls are run by local business owners, meaning you can pick up handmade wooden toys, artisan candles and local cheese before you head to the Apres Ski Bar for a mulled wine.

23rd November - 10th December, 2017

Manchester

10th November – 20th December, 2017 Arguably the largest and Best Christmas Market in the country, Manchester Christmas Market is the ideal destination for a festive group outing. This year could be the biggest and best ever, with some 300 traders offer mouth-watering international food, drinks and delicately crafted Yuletide gifts in the heart of this buzzing city. Last year the market

stretched to 10 sites, including a traditional German market on St Ann’s Square, a world market on Brazennose Street and a French market on King Street, all attracting millions of visitors. The main market hub will be at Albert Square in front of Manchester Town hall, with stalls on Exchange Street, Exchange Square, in the Corn Exchange, on New Cathedral Street and up Market Street, while Cathedral Gardens is home to a family-friendly area with a skating rink.

Skegness R�C�S

This was the idea of Becky Wilkinson who was inspired by the Shropshire Rocks Facebook Community (check out their Facebook page) and all the fun that they were having, so she decided to start a Skegness painted rock community herself.

then please feel free to keep it.

The idea is to decorate rocks and hide them in various places to brighten someone’s day.

Remember to be respectful of parks, private property and businesses. Please don’t take rocks from gravestones as a mark of respect and also because they are most likely to be memorial stones.

You can use paint, chalk, crayons, sharpies, whateveras long as it has a coat of sealer over it to help preserve the art. On the back of your masterpiece write in Sharpie - Post a picture to the Facebook Page “Skegness Rocks”. You can also write – “Re-hide Me”. If you find a piece of art that you can’t bear to part with

You can find us on Facebook under Skegness Rocks – we now have over 1,000 members and is proving to be a very enjoyable, unique pastime so please add your friends, decorate your rocks and get hiding! Why not post a quick photo of your rocks and a hint as to where we can find them.

This is great fun for everyone of all ages and abilities, from children out with their parents to playgroups and small organisations such as rainbows, brownies, beavers, scouts etc. “Get creative, have fun and get outside”.

Your Horoscopes

November

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

This is the perfect time to start a detox programme and get yourself back into shape, your Aries portents suggest. If you have neglected visits to the gym or engaging in physical activity then this month is perfect for getting yourself back on track. I would strongly suggest that you maintain a regular exercise routine so that you remain tuned to your physicality as well as your mentality.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

Be prepared to dress up this month and get your party clothes out for a whirl of social engagements including date nights, parties, events and functions. Your feet won’t touch the ground and you will be happy in the company of others. You will be in high spirits and nothing is likely to dampen your morale. I foresee a real fun time when you have little to worry about other than simply enjoying yourself!

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

Try to be as determined and as focused as you can this month. There may be deadlines which need to be met as well as promises which have to be kept. Your criteria for success could be based on a balanced approach, so allow yourself sufficient time to accomplish any tasks that may lie ahead. An organised and businesslike approach is vital if you are to achieve your goals.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

If you have been puzzling over what you really want out of life and you’ve been pondering events out of your control, your mind should feel less anxious and you will gain some of the clarity which you have been searching for. Certainly, you will feel more optimistic about your position in life and proud of your achievements. November is likely to be a time for quiet reflection with a positive outcome.

LEO (July 23- August 22)

Your friends and family will need you in November. The likelihood is that you will need them too. Zodiac November is set to be a relaxing Horoscope month where time is spent with friends and family. It’s a time to enjoy yourself and relax. Take time out and don’t feel guilty about it. It is a time to de-stress – you will notice the difference in your mood and, more importantly, your family will too.

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

You may find yourself questioning things and going over and over the same ground during November. There could be some confusion over what course of action to take. It is probably best to take time out to consider it rationally rather than making a rash decision. A work colleague may say some odd things which you will dwell on. The chances are that it is their problem not yours, so don’t try to shoulder the burdens of others.

Find out what’s in the stars for you this month

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

Your finances are likely to be in spectacular order this month and, as a result of this, personal relationships will benefit and your own inner peace and harmony will be restored. You will feel extremely positive and optimistic for the future. People will be drawn to you for your good humour and sensible advice. If there are any social events in your calendar, the chances are that you will end up as the life and soul of the party.

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

This is a 30-day period where your family is likely to need your attention more than ever. A younger member of the family could need some help and support. You could find that you lose your temper more easily over trivial things. Try to remain calm and rational at all times and don’t allow yourself to succumb to the pressures of work for once. It must come second to family affairs.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

You will be in a positive frame of mind this month and your focus is likely to be on the persona you project to other people. If you dissect your past mistakes you could easily make amends for any indiscretions. It is well within your capabilities to improve your sense of well-being and correct past errors, helping to ensure that personally damaging mistakes of this kind never occur again.

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

You may feel the need to seek out meditation, Yoga or Reiki healing. Certainly, you could feel the need to slow down since the pace of your life and career has become very fast of late. You may recognise the signs that it’s time to take a break and chill out. The best solution would be to take some time away from it all, so now’s the time to take a short break so that your personal and professional relationships can heal themselves.

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

What a lovely month for romance! Aquarians could find themselves falling easily and effortlessly in love. For those less impressionable, there could be an opportunity to rekindle things with an old flame who turns up out of the blue. This period could allow an opportunity for a trip down memory lane. It will certainly be a period full of pleasant dalliances and even more pleasant surprises!

PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

This could be a tricky period where you will struggle with work colleagues and with changes in your work circumstances. You might well seek advice from your seniors and you would be advised to listen very carefully to what they have to say. If you ignore this advice you are likely to feel even more bewildered. Their advice could suggest being more flexible and not to let your stubborn streak win the day.
