End of free movement “brutal” for expats Home Secretary Priti Patel’s promise to end freedom of movement on October 31 in a no deal Brexit has sparked new fears in expat communities on

both sides of the Channel. The government maintains Britain will leave the European Union on Halloween “do or die” - with or without a deal -

and has promised to protect the rights of 3.7 million EU nationals living and working in the UK. EU citizens have been in-

vited to apply for “settled status” and have until December 2020 to register under the settlement scheme - and they have been assured no one

eligible for this will be barred from re-entering the UK when free movement ends. Read the full story in Costa Blanca News on Friday.

“Working perfectly” One caught every minute This was the verdict of Finestrat mayor Juan Francisco Pérez in reference to the extensive underground drainage works and pumping station following last Tuesday night's torrential downpour. The mayor visited La Cala beach first thing on Wednesday morning and

was satisfied that the system installed coped perfectly to prevent flooding as had previously happened during such bouts. The only evidence of the severe weather was sand dragging and the beach was open as normal apart from a small area where diggers are currently working.

A speed trap on the Camino Viejo de Santa Pola road in Elche issued 75 fines in a single hour on Sunday, August 18, reported the local police. Officers had set up a checkpoint having completed repair work signposting along this road, including ones warning of radars, where the speed limit has been reduced from 100km/h to 60. Of the 198 vehicles that passed in both directions be-

tween 10.00 and 11.00 that morning, 141 were over the maximum speed, but after applying the acceptable margin of error 75 were issued with fines. The first time a mobile radar checkpoint was set up on this road, on August 12, it issued 87 fines in an hour, and officers will continue to carry out speed checks at different times and places along this road on a random basis, according to the head

of the local police road safety unit, José Sánchez. The changes were made after a fatal accident in which a head-on collision killed one man and seriously injured another. Traffic on the road has increased since the redesign of the main Elche-Santa Pola road, the CV-851, which installed several roundabouts and banned overtaking in order to reduce the number of accidents on that route.

Beniarbeig councillor 'sneers' at women's harassment help desk A female councillor in Beniarbeig has come under fire for mocking the women's sexual harassment safety point set up during the village fiestas. Helena Pastor Díez of the right-wing PP posted a photograph on Facebook of the 'purple point', or Punt Violeta – a scheme now operated in festivals in practically every town in the region – which showed a group of children and a disabled woman sitting around a

table. Accompanied by a string of laughing emojis, she wrote: “Nooo way!!!!! Purple point in Beniarbeig – Kindergarten???? Or total farce???? ROTFL!!!” According to the socialistled local government, the scene in the picture was of two of the volunteers who give advice to the public, along with a handful of local kids who had decided to 'sit with the table leaders to have

a chat' and 'keep each other company'. “They weren't doing anyone any harm,” the local government says. Socialist councillors condemned Helena's 'sneering attitude' and 'intolerance' against a scheme that has probably saved many women from unwanted approaches or, at least, made them feel safe. Helena has since deleted her post.

Benidorm gets 'green zone' - for parking Benidorm is to introduce a green zone for parking – which will remain free for residents displaying a resident sticker on their windscreen but will now also allow visitors to use them – but at a cost. The town hall has made the announcement which will be voted on in September – but as the ruling PP have the majority likely to just be a formality, to come into effect early 2020, affecting 3,000 bays. Residents are up in arms, calling it a ‘sell out’ of the promises the PP made prior to the elections of creating resident only zones. Although the stickers are free for those registered as living in the town many have

remarked it is only a matter of time before a charge is introduced – as is common in the UK. Non-residents will be able to use these green bays as pay & display, but the proposed charges are €1.50 per hour as opposed to €1 for 2 hours in a blue bay and obviously the town hall will need to employ more wardens to patrol these areas. They have also indicated that charges will be effective all day as currently it is free between 2pm and 4pm. Other changes that the ruling PP want to introduce will affect businesses for loading and unloading, with a charge for staying over 30 minutes.

New British Ambassador arrives in Spain The Foreign and Commonwealth Office has announced the arrival of the new British Ambassador to Spain Hugh Elliot. Mr Elliott succeeds Simon Manley as Her Majesty’s Ambassador to Spain and non-resident Ambassador to Andorra. The Ambassador takes up this new role having previously been Director of Communications in the Department for Exiting the European Union. On his arrival, Hugh Elliott said: “With a wealth of cultural, commercial, and people-to-people links, the relationship between the UK and Spain is like no other, and I am proud and honoured to repre-

sent my Queen and country here in Spain.” For the Ambassador, this strong connection with Spain has been an important part of his life for decades. “I met my wife Toñi while working as an English teacher at the University of Salamanca, Spain was my first diplomatic posting in the nineties and my two children were born in Madrid. I can understand why so many UK nationals have chosen to make Spain their home,” he said. He added that “We are approaching an important milestone as the UK prepares to leave the European Union on 31 October”. His message was one of reassurance to UK nationals currently living

in Spain that “We’ve given EU citizens living in the UK the legal certainty of their right to live and remain in the United Kingdom. And I’m very pleased that the Spanish Government has put in place, through the Royal Decree, the same guarantees for British citizens in Spain.” Mr Elliott acknowledged that people have questions and concerns, and undertook that he and his team would be working hard to answer them. He also urged people to sign up to the Living in Guide ( where they will find the latest, accurate information on Brexit. Hugh Elliott will shortly present his credentials.

Grant funds front line care Social care in Javea has received a timely boost with a grant worth nearly €19,000 from the Alicante provincial government. The money was specifically earmarked by Alicante to strengthen front line primary social care in the Marina Alta town. And councillor for social services Rita Berruti said €10,321 would be used to

provide additional financial assistance to families struggling to make ends meet, and €8,463 to expand the home help service. She said: “The town hall finances this assistance services from its own budget but with the support of the provincial government, a better service can be provided and more people be reached.”

Colour and fun On Saturday Terra Natura Wildlife Park in Benidorm celebrated the Hindu Holi Festival with a battle of colours. All those entering the park had the traditional Bindi – red spot marked on their foreheads and were treated to some exotic Bollywood style dancing by the entrance. The day also marked the 47th birthday of Petita, an Asian elephant who along with her companion Kaiso were decorated with some colourful motifs and offered a birthday basket of fresh fruit plus had Happy Birthday sung to her. Afterwards, the crowds had a colour party, throwing some 5,000 bottles of coloured water and 300 kilos of powder paint into the air and at each other. This year they also had coloured water cannons to spray at the crowds to the delight and squeals of all those getting messy and finished with a hose down with clean water.

Homes flooded in Pilar

Pilar de la Horadada town hall reported that 72 l/m2 of rain fell in the municipality last Wednesday morning. Cloudbursts caused flooding in many parts of Alicante province. A council spokesman said that the torrential rain had damaged crops and some roads had to be closed for a

short period. He added that some homes had been flooded in Los Campillos area. Additionally, beach infrastructure was damaged but this was quickly mended by council workers. The clean-up operation was also quickly underway around the town as diggers

removed mud from roads and streets was hosed down. The spokesman apologised for any nuisance that these works had caused to residents. “We are working on a definitive solution to problems which are caused when it rains heavily in the municipality,” he added.

Major killed in Mar Menor jet crash

Stolen cars seized in port Two stolen cars which were about to be driven onto the ferry in Alicante port bound for Algeria were seized by the Guardia Civil.

A major at San Javier air force academy, Francisco Marín died on Monday morning, when the C-101 jet he was piloting crashed into the Mediterranean Sea off La Manga del Mar Menor. According to the Spanish Ministry for defence, Major Marín did not survive the im-

pact against the sea. The rescue services were searching for him for several hours. The pilot was an experienced trainer, who had served on several international missions and with the Patrulla Águila aerobatic team, and he was considered one of the best

at his job in the academy. Access to Galúa, Monte Blanco and Entremares beaches at La Manga del Mar Menor were banned for safety reasons and to make the rescue and fuselage collection operations easier. More details and further developments in Costa Blanca News on Friday.

Cows in crisis A ship carrying 3,800 cows from Brazil to Turkey is being denied entry to Cartagena port, where it urgently needs to pick up feed to prevent the livestock from starving on the rest of the way to its destination. A representative of the shipping company contacted the Easy Horse Care Rescue

Centre in Rojales asking for help to find a solution in time. She said the feed is ready to be delivered as soon as authorisation is granted, and the issue will be resolved in court in a few days but this will be too late as supplies on board will run out on Monday. Sue Weeding of Easy

Horse Care says the situation also highlights the deforestation of the Amazon for breeding cattle, and has started a petition to pressure authorities to let the food on board. Further reports and updates on the situation will be printed in Costa Blanca News on Friday.

Cycle around Almoradí A two-kilometre cycle path is being planned between Almordí town centre and its Ciudad Deportiva sports complex. According to the town hall, this will be ready by the end of this year with an investment of €242,000, co-financed by the regional government and the EU. The idea is to make it easier to reach the sports centre, the outskirts of the municipality and other sporting facilities in the town centre, such as the Sadrián football ground and the Venancio Costa sports centre, on foot or by bike as they are both non-polluting modes of transport. The project, which is currently being put out to tender, consists of three sections.

The first runs through the town centre and involves marking out a lane in the road along Calles Albatros, Gaviotas and Europa, as well as creating a pedestrian route that is accessible for people with reduced mobility by creating ramps on the pavements. The second stretch will involve surfacing and signposting the existing rural dirt track between Calle Gaviotas and the CV-912 road (behind the football pitch). Along this track, traffic will be restricted to residents and the area for bicycles and pedestrians will be separated. Solar-powered lighting will also be installed. For the final section, 100 metres of pavement will be

built by the roundabout and the cycle path will be marked from the CV-912 junction to the Pabellón Mayte Andreu in the Ciudad Deportiva. The project comprises a total of 2,010 linear metres of paving or road markings, and

Overhead power lines have been fitted with insulation and warning spirals to reduce the number of birds being killed by flying into them over the pools of the Cartagena wastewater treatment plant in Cabezo Baeza. In recent months, conservationist association ANSE had detected a high number of waterfowl being killed by these collisions with the high-tension cables, including some endangered species, such as the whiteheaded duck. They called on the authorities to take action and the work was financed by the Murcia region sanitation public company (ESAMUR) at a cost of €10,700 (plus tax). It involved, over the last few weeks, placing 249 spiral-shaped bird flight diverters and 144 protective insulation covers. The pools at the treatment plant, which is managed by the water company Hidrogea, have recently been added to the national inventory of wetlands of the ministry for the ecological transition (formerly the environment).

Improvements to the wastewater treatment processes and there being water all year round in these large pools make them a great place for numerous species of water birds to shelter and fee whether they are migrating, wintering or breeding. Several pairs of white-headed ducks, common shelducks, Eurasian stone curlews and black-winged stilts, amongst other species, have bred there. Hidrogea and ANSE made a deal several years ago to collaborate monitoring bird populations, removing exotic invasive species, restoring the habitat, installing floating rafts for threatened species to breed on and environmental education. The recognition of the treatment plant as a protected wetland will mean that from now on they will collaborate even more to improve conservation of wildlife and carry out new projects to improve aquatic and terrestrial habitats, and to increase protection against possible threats, such as illegal hunting.

Homes, volunteers and donations wanted Torrevieja's animal shelter (Albergue Municipal de Animales) is urgently needing homes and volunteers to help lost and abandoned cats. This could hopefully be adoption but if not, fostering is also very beneficial while a cat waits to find their forever home. Shelter life can be very distressing for them, especially those older cats who have been accustomed to a home and became abandoned for many different reasons, death, illness, etc. Many crave human attention and having volunteers come in every day gives them an opportunity to get this affection. Life can also be boring in the shelter, especially for the young and active cats. So playing is also beneficial. Alongside the adult cats, there are many kittens that will bond very quickly with a new family. However, if they are not adopted or fostered quickly, again the volunteers are vital in socialising the kittens so that when prospective adopters come into the Centre, the kittens are not nervous. The volunteer role is vital in providing someone to spend time with them, keeping them socialised and ensuring that they are ready for adoption

when the right person comes to the centre. If you think you can help, either by adopting, fostering or volunteering, please visit the shelter between 10 am and 2 pm from Monday to Friday, or between 9 am and 1 pm on Saturdays and Sundays. The Albergue (shelter) is located in Avenida Los Nénufares, which is just off the CV905 close to Habaneras shopping centre. Take the slip road for the police and fire stations and turn right immediately past the fire station. The shelter is on the left at the end. Donations are also beneficial. Towels, bedding, pillows, cat litter and, of course, money donations. Food donations are also beneficial but check first with the shelter regarding type.

Lions concert draw in the crowds once again

Teulada Muscat festival This week, the 36th edition of the Teulada Muscat festival takes place. The event mixes culture, agriculture and celebration. “The muscat festival is an event that has been betting on the tradition and identity of our people for 36 years”, said Mila Bisquert, the president of ACAT (Associació Cultural Amics de Teulada). The programme began on Tuesday with a photographic exhibition in Teulada auditorium named ‘Mirages of the Muscat of Teulada V’. Among the events is the celebration of the ‘IV Sample Shorts of Muscat’ on Wednesday 28 and Thursday 29 August at 22.00, which is a series of showings of short films, also to be held at the auditorium. On Friday at 20.30, the final screenings will be shown, followed by ‘coca and grapes’ for attendees. This will be accompanied by open air music. Bisquert mentioned the great quality of the screenings, as in the past editions some of the short films have been nominated or have won prestigious awards. The main celebration will be at 11.00 on Saturday, August 31, when the whole day dedicated to this fiesta. Different events such as ‘The experience with the Muscat’ will feature an ensemble of associations who will travel from the cooperativa towards the riu rau of

Alejandro Llobell, the councillor of culture, thanked the work of ACAT and other associations, as the Muscat Festival is now an established event. “The historical significance of muscatel vineyards in the Marina Alta are not only part of our agriculture, but are also part of the territorial culture and idiosyncrasy”, said Llobell. Finally, Llobell wanted to invite both residents and visitors to participate in the events, and mostly to enjoy the land and its products.

Finance tips for students starting university

By Vicky Shaw, P.A. Managing money is an important part of university life. Here's how to get top marks on your finances, says Vicky Shaw. As students get ready to head off to university, many are about to get their first real taste of financial independence - for better or worse. Starting out as you mean to go on with good financial habits can at least help take some of the stress out of university life (even if it doesn't make your studies any easier!), and hopefully mean less debt at the other end. So with that in mind, here are five top tips for getting to grips with your finances as a student... 1. Find the right bank account for your needs - not just the one that's nearest to your campus or waving 'freebies' in front of you Rachel Springall, a finance expert at Moneyfacts., says: "The best account will entirely depend on how much the student expects to borrow, the benefits they feel are essential to have included and any additional perks. "Some providers attempt to entice students with discounts or gift cards, but these incentives could be a waste if not used frequently," she adds. "The

students closest banking branch on campus may not offer the best deal, so it's important to compare accounts carefully." So think about how you will use the account - including any perks that come with it. Highlighting some deals on the market in August, Springall says students looking for a "sweetener" may well find HSBC's offering of £100 in cash up-front, as well as an incentive bundle of student offers and discounts and a free 12-month British Cycling Fan Membership, attractive. Meanwhile, NatWest is offering a £10 Amazon gift card up-front and throwing in one year of Amazon Prime Student membership. Or, students can instead choose its free National Express Coachcard or tastecard, which may save them more money if they plan to travel

frequently or venture out to eat. Springall also says Halifax and Santander offer particularly generous interest-free arranged overdrafts for students from the outset, of as much as £1,500. "It's important students keep in mind that overdrafts are not guaranteed and it's vital they use any limit sparingly - overdrafts are a loan and will need to be paid back eventually," she notes. 2. Make a budget There are plenty of free-touse budgeting tools available online. Make sure you try to set enough money aside to cover all your outgoings, including spending which may be harder to calculate such as any shared bills if you've got housemates and money for socialising. It may be easier to keep a separate easy access savings account for social activ-

ities, to make sure your social spending is not eating into any money you'll need for essentials such as household bills. Try to break down your spending habits into weekly amounts, to make sure any lump sums of cash you have will last for however long you need them to. 3. If you have debts which are starting to become unmanageable, don't bury your head in the sand The sooner you speak to someone, the more options you're likely to have to get out of the situation. Springall says: "To avoid a debt pitfall, it's important that students keep an eye on their day-today spending by using online tools and mobile apps. "If students start to struggle financially they would be wise to seek out some advice, either from their bank or building society,

a debt charity, or by having an honest conversation with family or friends." 4. Start a savings habit This can be particularly hard when you're balancing a very tight budget - but if you try saving small amounts often, you may be surprised at how quickly your savings add up. "Saving up some cash while studying can be difficult because of social and essential spending, so it may be worth getting a part-time job to get some income and using mobile apps like Chip to automatically put aside cash for a rainy day," says Springall. 5. Don't assume when you graduate that your student account provider is still the best choice It's easy to stick with the same current account provider. But when you graduate, your circumstances and needs will change again - so make sure you have a fresh look around to see what's out there. The seven-day current account switch service (Cass) makes switching providers smoother, as payments are automatically swapped over to the new account. A guarantee also means you won't be left out of pocket if something goes wrong with the switch.

Wish you'd started planning for financial milestones earlier? What age do you wish you'd started investing in your career, saving for your first home, or planning your retirement? For many, the actual age at which we start planning towards certain financial milestones is several years later than we'd originally wished, research by Nottingham Building Society suggests. Saving for retirement should apparently start at 31 - but in reality, on average people typically got around to it aged 39, the survey of 2,000 people found. Meanwhile, people wish they'd started focusing on their career aged 25 but didn't do so until 27 on average, while making plans to buy a first home typically starts at 37 (although the survey found most had hoped to do so by 30). People said they'd got into the habit of saving regularly aged 31, wishing they'd started at 27. The survey also revealed people's top 10 savings priorities, which are: 1. A retirement fund 2. 'Rainy day' fund 3. House deposit or increasing equity 4. Holiday fund 5. Funds to partake in hobbies/outside of work activities 6. Debt repayments 7. New car 8. Children's saving account 9. Children's education 10. Wedding fund

Jamie Oliver: 'schools going veggie is a By Lauren Taylor, P.A. Everyone's favourite TV chef is back, with a new show and cookbook. Lauren Taylor catches up with Jamie Oliver to talk all things vegetarian. Famed for making home cooking approachable and achievable for millions of people, and for lobbying for better children's public health, Jamie Oliver's influence doesn't seem to be wavering - even 20 years on from the Naked Chef first appearing on our TVs. His restaurant chain may have recently gone into administration in the UK, but a few months on, he's "moving on, dusting down" after a "very, very painful" time and focusing on his next venture - and this time it's plant-based. So is the man who brought us the 'insanity burger' turning off meat altogether? "No. No way Jose!" he quaffs, and although a self-confessed meatlover, it might surprise you to learn that he eats meat "probably only twice a week" these days. His new Channel 4 show Meat-Free Meals and cookbook Veg feel bang on the zeitgeist. It's no coincidence that social consciousness around food is changing; we all know that cutting down on meat is better for the environment, as well as for ourselves. "Yes it's trendy at the moment, that's cool," Oliver, 44, says, as if preempting any assumptions that he's jumping on any bandwagons. He wrote (and shelved) this book eight years ago, in fact. "I could be wrong but I hope that now is the time to go quite hard and mainstream on veg," he says, and in true Jamie Oliver style he's determined to normalise it, to get all of us cooking it, all of the time. "We've made it (vegetarianis) more faddy than it needs to be. Veg has been depicted as quite a divisive thing, like football, gangs," he muses. "Vegan, vegetarian, pescatarian - what are you? But it doesn't really matter how you look at it, humans are absolutely deficient in veg, legumes and fibre. "Maybe it's because I'm a bit older," he adds, "maybe because it's 20 years down the road, but I hope it feels like: If Jamie Oliver is doing a vegetarian book, it's sort of saying something (about) where we're at and where we're going." The new TV show sees Oliver travel to countries where veg is often front and centre of

the cuisine, like India and Israel. "Meat has always been an expression of progress, it's always been a luxury or a sense of cash or commerce but when you haven't got much of it, humans are beyond genius," he says, on the food he discovered travelling. "The diversity of textures and colours, for really affordable - onions, carrots - everyday things like pickles and fritters, things that give you the same hugging feeling as a burger or a pizza. You're kind of sitting there going, 'I don't want any (meat), I'm really happy'." He even visits a meat-free school: "The idea of schools going veggie is a brilliant idea it would save loads of money." Oliver says he wanted to go back to focusing on "Monday to Thursday eating, busy working people" for his Veg cookbook (which is incidentally 30-40% vegan), and it certainly harks back to the style of 30-Minute Meals and 5-Ingredients. It's not rabbit food though. "It's a celebration, not commiseration," says Oliver. There's heartiness (crispy cauliflower katsu), comfort food (Indian-style chip butty), nutrient-dense (veg tagine) and naughtiness (cheesy kimchi toastie) and 'Friday night nibbles' for the end of the week. "For me it's a relief! I'll pour myself a little whiskey maybe and I want to have something fun to nibble on," Oliver says of his Friday nights. "It's about making it simple, delicious and as good as it can be, I'm not trying to give you the best," he adds, ever the realist. "I'm trying to write recipes that are car crashproof; OK so you chopped it really badly - that's cool, chop it badly." He doesn't want busy people to open the book and think: "'Well I'm never going to do that, not until the weekend'." It's why he's a big fan of

using frozen food, particularly veg. "Frozen is the future," Oliver declares. "The science of freezing has never changed, it's just that we've always frozen a lot of s***. The chances are that your frozen pea will be more nutritious, and in better condition, than your fresh pea that's been sitting in a warehouse for a week. "If you care about higher welfare, cheaper price - frozen. If you care about lack of waste - frozen. Convenience, portion control, nutrition - frozen." In recent years, Oliver's recipes haven't been without controversy though; he was once criticised for using chorizo in a paella and last year 'Jamie's jollof rice' attracted thousands of comments, many claiming he was 'appropriating' a traditional West African dish. "I just think that food can be political, it can be divisive," he says. "I learned to make the best hummus I've ever had from theoretically one of the best hummus makers on the planet - and there was at least 300-400 comments that went really dark and really political. We were in the West Bank, Israel, so you've got to be really careful." Politically speaking, Oliver has never been one to shy away; is he planning to lobby new Prime Minister Boris Johnson on child public health? "Always!" he declares - and there's a long list apparently. "I've met him on a number of occasions, I've seen him as mayor, I've seen him say one thing and contradict one thing, but what now? Will we continue to weekly speak to his teams? Yes. Will I want to meet with him as soon as possible? Yes. Is child health a central pillar of Britain now and in the future? Yes. "The biggest morally wrong thing we have to deal with right now is that too many times, the better or healthier option is too expensive. We definitely need governments

around the world to subsidy better food. "Generally, what a child and what a family needs is the same as what the planet needs - more veg, more nuts, more seeds, more legumes. If I had a magic wand, I'd love to go to David Attenborough and say, 'Can we do a show called My Health, My Planet?' Because I think that's the conversation now." I think it's safe to assume we'd all watch that. Meat-Free Meals airs on Channel 4 this September. Stuffed curried aubergines Up your veggie curry game with this delicious recipe. There's nothing more satisfying than a curry - and having one up your sleeve that doesn't involve meat is a game-changer for midweek cooking. Jamie Oliver says he wrote the recipe for his stuffed curried aubergines with spicy tamarind and peanut sauce eight years ago, and he's sharing it now in his new veggie cookbook.

Stuffed curried aubergines

Ingredients (Serves 6) 1 onion 4 cloves of garlic 4cm piece of ginger 1/2 a bunch of fresh coriander (15g) 2 fresh red chillies 1tsp each of cumin seeds, mustard seeds, ground turmeric, garam masala, fenugreek seeds 1 big handful of fresh curry leaves Groundnut oil 2tbsp (heaped) crunchy peanut butter 1tbsp mango chutney 2tbsp tamarind paste 12 finger aubergines (800g total) 1 x 400g tin of light coconut milk 250g ripe mixed-colour cherry tomatoes Sea salt and black pepper Nutritional value per serving: Energy 221kcal Fat 15.2g Sat Fat 5.6g Protein 6.7g Carbs 15.9g Sugars 12.9g Salt 0.9g Fibre 2.3g Method 1. Preheat the oven to 190oC/375oF/gas 5. Peel the onion, garlic and ginger, place in a food processor with the coriander stalks and chillies (deseed if you like), and whiz to a fine paste. 2. Put the spices and curry leaves into a 25cm x 35cm roasting tray on a low heat with two tablespoons of oil and fry for one minute, or until smelling fantastic, stirring constantly. Tip in the paste and cook for five minutes, or until softened, stirring regularly.

brilliant idea' 3. Stir in the peanut butter, mango chutney and tamarind paste, season with a good pinch of sea salt and black pepper, then scrape into a bowl, adding a splash of water to loosen to a paste, if needed. 4. Leaving them intact at the stalk, cut the aubergines into quarters lengthways, rub and stuff them generously with all the paste, then arrange them in the tray (if using regular aubergines, simply trim then cut into 1cm-thick rounds and sandwich the paste between them). 5. Place the tray on a medium heat and fry for five minutes, turning halfway. Add the coconut milk, roughly chop and sprinkle over the tomatoes, season well with salt and pepper, and bring to the boil. 5. Cover with tin foil and roast for 40 minutes, or until thickened and reduced, removing the foil halfway. Season to perfection and scatter over the coriander leaves. To serve: Always good with fluffy rice, poppadoms, yoghurt and extra fresh chilli. Veggie pad thai It's 100% better than takeout. You might never need chicken or prawn in a pad thai again, after trying Jamie Oliver's new veggie version. You can knock this together in 30 minutes, too. And to make it vegan, just remove the eggs and serve with extra tofu. Ingredients (Serves 2) 150g rice noodles Sesame oil 20g unsalted peanuts 2 cloves of garlic 80g silken tofu

Veggie pad thai

Low-salt soy sauce 2tsp tamarind paste 2tsp sweet chilli sauce 2 limes (juiced - plus extra wedges for serving, if you like) 1 shallot 320g crunchy veg, such as asparagus, purple sprouting broccoli, pak choi, baby corn 80g beansprouts 2 large eggs Olive oil Dried chilli flakes 1/2 a cos lettuce 1/2 a mixed bunch of fresh, basil, mint and coriander (15g) Nutritional value per serving: Energy 593kcal Fat 19g Sat Fat 3.8g Protein 26.4g Carbs 83.5g Sugars 10.7g Salt 1.3g Fibre 8.3g Method 1. Cook the noodles according to the packet instructions, then drain and refresh under cold running water and toss with one teaspoon of sesame oil. 2. Lightly toast the peanuts in a large non-stick frying pan on a medium heat until golden, then bash in a pestle and mortar until fine, and tip into a bowl. 3. Peel the garlic and bash to a paste with the tofu, add one teaspoon of sesame oil, one tablespoon of soy, the tamarind paste and chilli sauce, then squeeze and muddle in half the lime juice. 4. Peel and finely slice the shallot, then place in the frying pan over a high heat. Trim, prep and slice the crunchy veg, as necessary, then dry-fry for four minutes, or until lightly charred (to bring out a nutty, slightly smoky flavour). 5. Add the noodles, sauce, beansprouts, and a good

splash of water, toss together over the heat for one minute, then divide between serving bowls. 6. Wipe out the pan, crack in the eggs and cook to your liking in a little olive oil, sprinkling with a pinch of chilli flakes. 7. Trim the lettuce, click apart the leaves and place a few in each bowl. Pop the eggs on top, pick over the herbs, and sprinkle with the nuts. Serve with lime wedges for squeezing over, and extra soy, to taste. Super spinach pancakes These green pancakes are topped with avocado, tomato and cottage cheese. Pancakes and weekends go together perfectly, but what if there was a way to make them healthier? Jamie Oliver packs these ones with spinach to give them a vibrant green colour - and a bit more nutritional value. Serve them with a fried egg on top for an extraspecial bonus. Ingredients (Serves 6) 1 ripe avocado 350g ripe mixed-colour cherry tomatoes 100g baby spinach 3 spring onions 1/2 a bunch of fresh coriander (15g) 1 lime (juiced - plus more wedges for serving, if you like) Extra virgin olive oil 1 large egg 1 mug of self-raising flour 1 mug of semi-skimmed milk Olive oil 300g cottage cheese Hot chilli sauce Sea salt and black pepper Nutritional value per serving: Energy 331kcal Fat 13.3g Sat Fat 4g Protein 13.5g Carbs 42.3g Sugars 6.3g Salt 1.2g Fibre 3g

Method 1. Halve, destone, peel and finely slice the avocado and quarter the tomatoes, then place in a salad bowl with a quarter of the spinach. Trim, finely slice and add the spring onions and pick in the coriander leaves, then squeeze over the lime juice. Drizzle with one tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil, season to perfection with sea salt and black pepper, toss to coat and put aside. 2. Crack the egg into a blender, add the flour, milk, remaining spinach and a pinch of salt and pepper, then blitz until smooth. Place a large non-stick frying pan on a medium heat, rub the pan with a little olive oil, then pour in a

thin layer of batter, swirling it up and around the edges. Cook on one side only for two minutes, or until lightly golden, then stack up on a serving plate and repeat. 3. Top each pancake with dollops of cottage cheese, the avocado salad, and a few good shakes of chilli sauce. Really nice served with extra lime wedges for squeezing over, and a fried egg on top, if you fancy. Meat-Free Meals airs on Channel 4 this September.

Your stars for next week


21 Mar - 20 Apr


21 Apr - 21 May


22 May - 21 Jun


22 June - 23 Jul

A low-key start to this week gives you the chance to plot and plan. Being organised means getting so much more done, as you find. In a busy and productive time, you are seen at your best. Social and business connections are supportive, helping to solve some long-term niggling problems. Although on a roll and wanting to do everything at once, don't let your home life suffer.

Pay attention to detail, especially at work as the week begins. Business colleagues want to get things moving but you may still be in a leisurely mood. Let them set the ball rolling and join in where your talents can show themselves. Social gatherings take up some time as there is reason to celebrate. Pleasure is utmost in your mind but it is certainly shared by others. A romantic time.

Being optimistic gets you off to the best start. Believe in and use your talents. Spending time on improving your surroundings gives pleasure to yourself and loved ones. Involve them as much as possible. Clearing out cupboards and lofts seems like the thing to do now, but check with loved ones. What is rubbish to one could be a treasure to someone else! Charity shops can benefit.

Business being on the backburner a bit this week, please do get out and enjoy yourself. Any low mood moments will pass quickly if you look ahead. See the brighter moments ahead and always look forward. The time is right for getting to know your neighbours or work friends more socially. The joy of having fun in a group is high, so allow yourself to fully enjoy the company of others.





24 July - 23 Aug

24 Aug - 23 Sep

24 Sept - 23 Oct

24 Oct - 22 Nov

This is a romantic week that may demand plenty of your time and attention. It is time well spent though! If energy is low for a few days then a slight delay to a plan can get it off to a better start. Choose your best time. Really this week is all about picking the moment to move forward. Socially you have everything to play for and, let's face it, you do need to have some of that playtime!

A change in someone's attitude could take you by surprise. Before you have a kneejerk reaction however, think their reasons through. Busy as you are, change is not always something that you seek. Is someone trying to fire up your imagination and passions? Are there good reasons for you resisting? This moment could be a gift to your soul. Allow yourself to savour the good it can bring.

Having a bright and enthusiastic air about you really works this week. Your creative side is in full swing, so don't resist the urge to indulge it. Some moments spent working alone point you in the right direction. This could be leading to working with others on something that is fun and satisfying. Keep an open mind and see how others approach the world. You are not a novice, but we can always learn more.

Have confidence and enthusiasm in your ideas. It is good to be in a creative and dreamy mood. It is through these periods that we often find our niche. The way forward becomes clear, quickly, as a new member of your group makes suggestions. You may prefer to be in charge but, sometimes, it can be fun to go more with the flow. Try it and enjoy.





23 Nov - 21 Dec

Stay on your toes when it comes to finances. Friends can be persuasive when it comes to a pet project but few things are as simple as they first appear. Keep these business matters for the weekdays, anyway. Evenings and weekends this week should certainly be made over to pleasure and imagination. A loved one fully appreciates your attentions and a new approach.

22 Dec - 20 Jan

Love and support from those who love you is only a phone call away. Letting someone closer into your life this week could do them a favour. Maybe they have issues of their own that you can help with? Although you may be feeling like a bit of a home bird at the moment, a short trip out could have mutual benefit. It is easier to chat in the outdoors, don't you find?

21 Jan - 19 Feb

There is a lot of love and support around this week. Really enjoy the time with people who want to be with you. There is very little effort to be made but what you do give is appreciated. Midweek and the weekend can be truly romantic times when a commitment may be given. Is this real passion? Whatever it is, be prepared to fully enjoy it.

20 Feb - 20 Mar

What a great week for making contact with family and friends. Romance can be particularly passionate at the weekend. Plan ahead who you will be with and where! Have a favour to ask someone? Midweek could see the best chance of success. Remember that knowledge can be fun and maybe enrol in a course or club beginning this week. The social benefits are yet to be found.

Types of underwear for women

Advertising Feature

Article supplied by Shani Malyon of Shani’s Lingerie Us women do not pay enough attention to, or shop for, our underwear quite as much as we should. We forget that our undergarments and general lingerie are just as important as our outerwear (some would say even more so), and that we do need to pay equal and particular attention to our undie drawers. It’s really not at all cool to be oblivious to these things, ladies. So listen up! We have listed everything you need to know about your intimates: types of panties, best fabrics to choose, buying tips and general hygiene advice. Let’s take a look at the best underwear for women. 1. Boy shorts Boy shorts are a feminine version of men’s boxers. These are rectangular, provide full coverage to your bottom, and extend a little below your hip - unlike your regular panties. When to wear: with skirts, trousers, or just about anything that can be replaced as an everyday essential, provided you are comfortable. If they are seamless, you can also wear these under skirts and dresses too.

hipster, French cut, high-waist etc, and are for women who are not comfortable with the idea of either thongs or G-strings. When to wear: white jeans, shorts, trousers, dresses or skirts and so on. 5. Hipsters Hipsters are a mix between bikini and boy shorts. The waistband goes around your hip, and they sit lower on your body when compared to your regular briefs. They are taut and body-hugging, give you good coverage, and come with bikini-like leg holes: an interesting choice for those women who prefer bikini-style, but for regular use. When to wear: any outfit.

2. Thongs

6. High-waist briefs

Thongs are unconventional, at least when we talk about underwear in a practical sense. However, they are actually one of the most sought-after undergarments for lots of women, as we do not have to worry about a visible panty line with this one. Thongs come with a waistband just like your regular panties, but have a very narrow string that runs from the front to the rear. When to wear: with swimwear, shorts, white jeans, dresses etc.

A lot of women do not like the extra flab that bulges out when they wear low lying panties, so high-waist briefs are their best friends. They give you good coverage, sit above your belly button, provide shape to your body, and are incredibly comfortable. When to wear: any outfit.

3. G-strings If you are used to thongs, G-strings are likely to be familiar too. These are a fancier variant of thongs but have no waistband: they have thin strings instead of the regular waistband, and a very narrow coverage for the panty line. When to wear: with swimwear, shorts, white jeans, dresses, etc. 4. Seamless Seamless panties do not have a thick border, and come in really soft fabrics like satin, silk, jersey or blends. They come in all types – like

7. Briefs Briefs are what they mean when they say underwear; a standard, soft and comfortable panty that works best as an everyday essential for women. The waistband rests on, or a little below, your belly button. If you want something with better coverage, go for the high-waist briefs that we just discussed. When to wear: any outfit. 8. Bikini panties Bikini panties, just as the name suggests, are part of the swimwear segment. They come in soft, flowing fabrics like lace, satin, silk, jersey etc. and provide you with moderate coverage. They are a mix between your regular briefs and a thong, and your options are endless. These can be paired with two-piece bikini sets. When to wear: as a bikini pair.

Underwear fabric options A. Cotton Cotton is the most common, and most breathable, fabric for panties, plus it is also the most preferred choice. It’s perfect for everyday use, and you will see that all your regular briefs are usually made of pure cotton. These are best for summers, for workouts, and for general daily use. B. Lace Lace is used for your fancy lingerie. These are light, transparent, and seamless too. Since it is very flimsy and thin, it’s not very suitable for winters, unless you wear enough layers. However, buy from standard recognised brands because lace can cause irritation and itching if it’s not of good quality. C. Satin Satin is smooth and soft, and a luxury for your skin. These are perfect for lounging, as lingerie, or just for when you want to pamper yourself a little. D. Silk Silk is also mostly used for making lingerie and fancy panties, or by some brands that simply make everyday panties interesting. It sits on your skin seamlessly and feels almost weightless. E. Jersey Jersey material is usually a blend of polyester and nylon: it is waterproof, and perfect for the pool, beach vacations, bikinis etc. Buying tips Know your size: measure your waist and hip size before you go shopping, so that you can map it accordingly. Every brand has different sizes, and even these can change with the undies type - so this is important. Know what type to buy: not all panties suit all personality types, and also depending on your body type, the season of the year and so on choose the right panty for you. You can find many different types of underwear in my shop at Zoco market every Sunday (changing room facilities available).

Hearing loss doesn't just affect older people: Six ways to protect your ears at any age By Lisa Salmon, P.A. Millions of young people are at risk of damaged hearing from listening to loud music. Lisa Salmon asks an expert what we can do about it. More than nine million Brits are thought to suffer from some degree of hearing loss, and while it is more common in older people, plenty of younger people have hearing problems too. The charity Action on Hearing Loss (actiononhear believes as many as four million young Brits are at risk of hearing damage from loud music, for example - which can include tinnitus as well as hearing loss - and is urging them to better protect their ears from prolonged exposure to it. Hearing protection expert Stephen Wheatley, a trustee of the UK Hearing Conservation Association and CEO of HearAngel/LimitEar, which develops technologies to protect hearing while using headphones, explains that humans have about 15,000

such high-energy music all day. Consider your personal sound dose and, as well as spending plenty of time resting your ears without headphones, consider listening to something a little more gentle too. Try a ballad, or perhaps a podcast - variety is good. 5. Don't listen in noisy environments

auditory hair cells in each ear at birth, and regular, repeated exposure to large sound doses can cause irreparable damage to them. "This damage can take a long time to show up and, obviously, the older one gets, the more sound you're likely to be exposed to," says Wheatley. "You don't get any more of the hair cells and when they're gone, they're gone - and so is your hearing. "We tend to think of hearing loss as something that affects older people - and often this is the case. However, shockingly, according to the World Health Organisation, not only are 466 million people currently living with disabling hearing loss, but more than a billion young people aged between 12-35 years are at risk of hearing loss due to recreational exposure to loud sounds," he adds. Want to know how you and your loved ones can protect your ears? Here are Wheatley's simple tips to lower your sound exposure and protect your hearing at any age... 1. Generally avoid noise Sometimes, a little peace and quiet is exactly what you need. As exposure to sound is calculated as an average

over a 24-hour period, those quiet times will help bring the average down and your ears will benefit from a period of no or low-exposure to sound. The obvious time to achieve quiet is when you're asleep, so make your bedroom environment as quiet as possible. If you live on a busy road, this may be tricky, but double glazing and heavyduty blackout curtains can help. Equally, if you're spending an evening in a noisy nightclub or at a concert, take a break from the noise occasionally, either by going to a quieter area or perhaps by wearing earplugs for a support band but removing them for the main act. 2. Know your sound dose How long are you listening for, how loud is it, and what's the 'energy' content of what you're listening to? These factors combine to give you your sound dose. How does your sound dose compare with the hearing health recommendations? As a guide, electronic dance music is high energy - lots of beats, few gaps to recover - while speech, with lots of quiet pauses between words, is relatively low energy. Looking at the recommendations of hearing health experts such

as the World Health Organisation (WHO) and the Noise at Work regulations as to what constitutes an acceptable sound level, the magic number is 80.22dB over a 24-hour period. This is your Daily Sound Allowance (DSA(R)). You need to monitor this to stay safe. 3. Let your device guide you If you're listening on your phone or tablet, you'll probably have noticed the high volume warning - don't automatically override this, instead think about why it's there. The current WHO recommendations are to limit your exposure to no more than 85dBA over any eighthour period. A smartphone can output more than 100dB - and at that volume it's only safe to listen for around 20 minutes in any eight-hour period before hearing is damaged. So, as pretty much every parent ever has said at some point, turn the volume down! 4. Vary what you listen to You may love a blast of Metallica to wake you up on your morning commute, but your ears won't thank you if you continue to listen to

When you're sitting on the train, tube or bus, it's tempting to plug in your headphones and switch off from the world. However, you'll probably find yourself nudging up the volume to block out the extraneous noise so you can hear clearly - we tend to listen at 6-10dB above the level of the background noise. So, if you're on an underground train that can reach levels as high as 90-100dB, and attempting to get the volume above that, you're on dangerous ground, hearing-wise. The best thing you can do when background noise is high is use earplugs or, if you want to listen to something, wear over-ear (preferably noise-cancelling) headphones that block out most of the noise, letting you listen comfortably at lower, less harmful levels. 6. Use noise-cancelling headphones If you use noise-cancelling headphones, you'll find that in noisy environments you'll listen at a lower volume, so you'll be able to use your headphones three or four times longer, and you'll be doing your long-term hearing a favour. Earpiece-type noise-cancelling headphones will reduce ambient noise by a factor of 10, over-ear ones by 20 (their physical shape makes a more effective barrier than in-ear headphones). They work by cancelling out the noise you're being exposed to, and they make it quieter even if you're not actually listening to anything. You'll still have to listen at 610dB above the noise 'floor' (residual level), but as that will be much lower, the total listening level will be correspondingly lower.

What is Achalasia? Achalasia is a rare disorder of the oesophagus, which can make it difficult to swallow food and drink. Normally, the muscles of the oesophagus contract to squeeze food along towards the stomach. A ring of muscle at the end of the oesophagus then relaxes to let food into the stomach. In achalasia, the muscles in the oesophagus don't contract correctly and the ring of muscle can fail to open properly, or doesn't open at all. Food and drink cannot pass into the stomach and becomes stuck and it is often brought back up. Symptoms Not everyone with achalasia will have symptoms, but most people will find it difficult to swallow food or drink. Swallowing tends to get gradually more difficult or painful over a couple of years, to the point where it is sometimes impossible. Other symptoms may include: Bringing back up undi-

gested food Choking and coughing fits Heartburn Chest pain Repeated chest infections Drooling of vomit or saliva Gradual but significant weight loss The symptoms of achalasia may start at any time of life. Long-term untreated achalasia very slightly increases the risk of developing cancer of the oesophagus. This means it is important to get appropriate treatment for achalasia straight away, even if your symptoms are not bothering you. Causes Achalasia is thought to occur when the nerves in the oesophagus become damaged and stop working properly, which is why the muscles and ring of muscle don't work. The exact cause of this is unknown. In some people, it may be linked to a viral infection. It may also be associated with having an autoimmune con-

dition, where the body's immune system attacks healthy cells, tissue and organs. In very rare cases, achalasia may run in families. Treatments There is no cure for achalasia, but treatment can help relieve the symptoms and make swallowing easier. Your doctors will talk to you about the risks and benefits of the different treatment options. Medication Some medicines can help to relax the muscles in your oesophagus. This makes swallowing easier and less painful for some people. The effect only lasts for a short time, so medicine may be used to ease symptoms while you wait for a more permanent treatment. Stretching the muscle Under a sedative or general anaesthetic, a balloon is passed into the oesophagus using an endoscope. The balloon is then inflated to help stretch the ring of muscle that lets food into your stomach. This improves swallowing for most people, but you may need treatment several

times before your symptoms improve. Botox injection Using an endoscope, Botox is injected into the ring of muscle that lets food into your stomach, causing it to relax. It is usually effective for a few months and occasionally for a few years, but it has to be repeated. This is usually painless, and can be used for temporary relief in people who are not able to have

other treatments. Surgery Under general anaesthetic, the muscle fibres in the ring of muscle that lets food into your stomach are cut. This is done using keyhole surgery and is called Heller’s Myotomy. It can permanently make swallowing easier. In very rare cases some people may need an operation to remove a part of their oesophagus.

On the box Britain's Got Talent: The Champions (ITV, 8pm) Saturday, 31/8/2019 It's only been a couple of months since crooning Chelsea Pensioner Colin Thackery was crowned winner of the 13th series of Britain's Got Talent. Nevertheless, ITV clearly think some viewers are having BGT withdrawals and are wheeling out this bonus series. Over the next few weeks, familiar faces from the show and others from the Got Talent franchise around the world are being judged by Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden, Alesha Dixon and David Walliams. In tonight's first episode, Boogie Storm - a group of dancing Stormtroopers who earned Cowell's golden buzzer in 2016 and even managed to make it to the final - will be taking to the stage, along with fellow Brit Paul Potts, the very first winner of BGT back in 2007. Those two acts will be taking on sand artist and winner of Ukraine's Got Talent Kseniya Simonova, and daredevil father-daughter duo from America's Got Talent, Bello and Annaliese Nock.

Antiques Roadshow (BBC1, 8pm) Sunday, 1/9/2019 The first episode of the show's 42nd series sees Fiona Bruce and the team visit Morden Hall Park, a National Trust property located on the banks of the River Wandle in Morden, south London. They assess items including a rare Cartier driver's watch, a self-portrait by John Lennon and Yoko Ono and a plate designed by Pablo Picasso. Jewellery specialist Joanna Hardy examines a diamond studded replica of a brooch originally designed for Wallis Simpson, while glass expert Andy McConnell inspects three early 18th-century pieces bought for just a few pence.

A Confession (ITV, 9pm) Monday, 2/9/2019 In 2011, Detective Superintendent Steve Fulcher breeched police procedure to catch a killer, a decision that would ultimately cost him his career. Now, this new drama from writer Jeff Pope explores the controversial case, with Martin Freeman taking the lead role of Fulcher. It begins on Saturday, March 19, 2011, when Elaine O'Callaghan (Siobhan Finneran) discovers her daughter Sian didn't return to the home she shares with her boyfriend following a night out. Fulcher, the on-duty Senior Investigating Officer, launches a search, and the media coverage strikes a chord with Karen Edwards (Imelda Staunton), who hasn't seen her own daughter, Becky, for over eight years. After CCTV footage of Sian getting into a car outside a nightclub emerges, Fulcher decides to proceed on the basis that she is still alive and being held captive.

Fitness recovery is a growing trend - but what exactly is it and how can you do it? By Liz Connor, P.A. You don't have to be a proathlete to reap the benefits of a good rest day. Liz Connor finds out what it's all about. If you're looking to get stronger, leaner and fitter, it's easy to believe the fastest way to see results is to go hard with your exercise - as often as possible. But there's growing emphasis on how what you do outside of the gym is just as important as time spent sweating and racking up reps. Recovery isn't a new concept, of course - but thanks to the rise of high-intensity workouts, the term has become a lot more sophisticated than just taking a day to lie on the sofa and catch up on Netflix. There's now a growing trend for supercharging your rest days with dedicated gym classes, gadgets and techniques designed to help you recover better and faster. Here, we take a closer look at what it all means... So why is recovery important? "I always tell my clients that recovery is important to build into any exercise regime," says Jake Roston, a trainer from PureGym ( "It's the time the body takes to adapt to the stresses of exercise, replenish energy stores and repair damaged muscle tissue." Roston explains that when we workout, we make minute tears in our muscle tissue, which is how we get stronger. "During recovery, the body repairs these tears, making them more resilient to future exercise," he says. "Without recovery though, you'd continue to rupture your muscle, which can eventually result in injury." There are other negative effects to not recovering

properly too. "If you're not employing proper recovery strategies, you may see suboptimal results from your training and slower progress," says Elliott Upton, senior personal trainer at Ultimate Performance ( "Lack of proper rest can also impact your immune system, your susceptibility to illness, your mood and your sleep too. "It's important to remember that you do not adapt and grow during your workout, you adapt and grow when you recover," adds Upton, who explains that for many people who like to push themselves, the problem "is not over-training, it is actually under-recovering". How much rest and recovery is required? As a general rule of thumb, Roston says average muscle recovery normally takes between 24-48 hours. "Many people can suffer from DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness) for up to 48 hours after a hard workout," says Upton, especially if you're new to exercise, have had a long period off or are starting a new training cycle. If you're finding the soreness is lingering for four to five days after though, he warns that you may be train-

ing with too much volume and intensity. Rest and recovery doesn't just mean doing nothing, though. "Fitness recovery can take many forms, such as stretching, yoga, foamrolling or even focusing on your post-workout nutrition," says Dave Mercer, a personal trainer at Nuffield Health ( Upton agrees that "nutrition is really key - and following a high-protein diet is important for anyone who trains hard. Protein's primary role in the body is growth and repair, and this can help to minimise muscle soreness after a workout," he adds. Upton always recommends that his clients set up their diet to help combat inflammation, and advises avoiding foods that put the body in a pro-inflammatory state. "In an inflamed state, it's not only the risk of injury that increases, but the time taken to recover too," he says. "Eating a diet rich in green vegetables and essential fats containing anti-inflammatory omega-3s, like oily fish, whilst limiting overly-processed foods is a good rule to follow when looking to reduce inflammation. "Foods that are pro-inflammatory include refined sugar, alcohol, trans and hydrogenated fats, pro-inflam-

matory omega-6 fats like seed and vegetable oils." He also recommends getting a few early nights too: "Sleep is the best free recovery and performance-enhancing tool in your arsenal. It's the body's way of recharging our batteries, recovering our energy and regenerating our cells." The ideal bedtime routine? He suggests having an Epsom salt bath, avoiding screens for an hour before bed, sleeping in a silent and pitch-black room where possible, and turning off all electrical devices around you. 'Active recovery' is also a thing "Staying active, moving your body and using your muscles is important, even when you are recovering," says Upton, referring to 'active recovery'. This essentially means undertaking low-intensity exercise between heavier workouts, which Upton says can help pain by promoting better blood-flow and nutrient delivery into areas that are sore. "Types of active recovery that are low-impact and not overly taxing on your body can be things like a gentle walk, swim or bike ride, or even yoga. Massage or using a foam roller can help increase circulation and nu-

trient delivery while 'breaking down' tightly-bound muscles," he adds. Recovery isn't just for the body though - rest days are important for mental health too. The boom of franchise and independent studios focusing on relaxation and recovery is not a coincidence, like meditation studio Re:Mind (, which offers PAYG breathing and mindfulness classes. The studio is part of fitness membership ClassPass' offering, so HIIT lovers can hit up a recovery class alongside their usual training programme. "The growth of the health, fitness and wellness industry in recent years has been instrumental in getting people to sit up and pay more attention to recovery as part of a greater appreciation of our health," explains Ben McNamara, community manager at Theragun ( Theragun is a vibrating pro-therapy tool that uses 'percussive therapy' to treat stiff muscles and banish pain. You run the massage head of the G3 device along your body, so it can eke out knots, cramps and spasms. The idea is that it's portable enough to throw in your gym bag so you can get the effect of a deep-tissue massage on the go. Soon, the brand hopes to have the guns set up in boutique studios, so gym-goers can get a quick self-massage in before hitting the showers. "It's no secret we're living in an increasingly time-poor society, where people are often confined to a desk, day-in, day-out, and that's only exacerbated the need for proper recovery," says McNamara. Whether you're training for a dedicated fitness goal, or just getting into the workout game, the time to take your recovery seriously is now.

RONY, male, Shelter since 13.07.2015 Crossbreed, DOB 15.03.2014 – 50 cm Rony was just tied to our gate so we don’t have a clue as to where he came from. He is a very vivid dog who has not had much contact with humans. Maybe this would change once he gets an owner. He is very attentive and maybe he could become a good guard dog on a larger plot. Call APASA 96 646 3976.

Pets in Spain BAXTER is 5 months old and looking for his forever home. He has started his vaccinations and is good with other dogs. Baxter will be medium/large when fully grown. Please call 645 469 253. www.petsinspain. com info@petsinspain. com
