A few things to try this month...

COOK WITH SQUASH

From the mot­tled and toad-like to the deckchair-striped, the hum­ble squash is an im­mu­nity-boosting pow­erhouse packed with vi­ta­min A and C. Why not try risotto stud­ded with chunks of but­ter­nut?

BRIGHTEN UP YOUR ROOMS

Now that the nights are draw­ing in, it’s the per­fect time to give your home a makeover. Boost your rooms with brightly coloured ac­ces­sories and unique items that will make you smile. There’s no need for drea­ry­ness this side of the New Year!

MAKE YOUR CHRIST­MAS PUD

We know it’s far too early to men­tion the C-word, but the last week­end in Novem­ber is Stir-up Sun­day, his­tor­i­cally the day to make your pud­ding. Tra­di­tion says you stir from east to west and all the fam­ily has a turn while mak­ing a wish. Add a six­pence to bring good luck and pros­per­ity!

CHECK YOUR ALARMS

Ev­ery year, 40 peo­ple die from car­bon monox­ide poi­son­ing. The gas – which has no colour, taste or smell – can oc­cur in faulty boil­ers and gas fires. En­sure yours are in­stalled and reg­u­larly tested by Gas Safe Reg­is­tered en­gi­neers and test your smoke and car­bon monox­ide de­tec­tors now.
