Dear readers,

Despite this being Halloween season I do hope that none of you have a Thomas Cook horror story to tell after last month’s collapse.

Ironically we ran an article on package holidays in our last issue when Mr Thomas Cook ran his first railway excursion in 1841 which cost £1. One report in February this year valued the company at £3.2 billion!

Following on with the Halloween theme we have the History of Witches on page 6 and a ghostly quiz on page 10!

Technology is still scary to many of us but even scarier is the thought of accidental damage to our smartphones so the Tech article on page 31 has details of various products that can protect your phone from ‘bumps in the night’!

Page 26 features one of the scariest lifestyle changes that the majority of us will have to make at some stage – retirement! And what to do with it! Lots of ideas for sociable hobbies, indoor hobbies and of course outdoor hobbies.

It’s also suggested that you do this well before you retire so you have a plan in place or a hobby already up and running. My husband seems to think mountain biking is the perfect hobby for us! We shall see!

Finally if you are faced with a really scary household project like sweeping the chimney or cleaning a carpet etc, then look in our Local Business Directory on page 34 to banish all those fears with one simple phone call!
