Write our Star Letter

And Win a Winter Basket Hamper from Virginia Hayward Ltd


Write our Star Letter and win a Winter Basket Hamper from Virginia Hayward Ltd

We want to hear from Sixtyplusurfers! Write this month's Star Letter and you could win a fabulous Virginia Hayward ‘Winter Basket’ Hamper worth £39.99!

This luxury hamper is perfect for enjoying on a cold winter evening together with friends and family. Inside the wicker basket the goodies include caramelised sesame peanuts, chocolate orange biscuits, a luxury chocolate yule log and truffles. There’s also a bottle of Pinot Grigio and a packet of Taylor’s coffee. This hamper is just one from a comprehensive range of fabulous hampers.

For more information about this hamper and its contents click on www.virginiahayward.com

Virginia Hayward’s new hamper range for 2014 is the most significant to date as the company celebrates its 30th Anniversary. This is a huge milestone - three decades of hamper decadence. Virginia Hayward Ltd was the idea of Geoff and Gin (Virginia) Hayward back in 1984, but how did it all start? A hamper given to them as a present one Christmas from a friend - both Geoff and Gin thought, “What a brilliant idea especially if you live in the country”.

They had arrived in Dorset in 1975 and spent 9 years dairy farming but hankered for a more commercial project and mental challenge. It was tough at the start especially with 3 young growing children but as Geoff says “you have to be single minded to succeed in what you start, we were in it for the long haul.” They both continued running the farm alongside the hampers until 1996 and that involved late nights and early mornings.

The business revolves around Christmas, it’s the most important part of the year. If asked, a member of staff won’t say how many years they have been with the company, staff turnover is extremely low, it’s how many Christmases they have done. And they are all rather proud of that.

The future is certainly bright for Virginia Hayward, the next generation are very much part of the business and for both Geoff and Gin that’s very exciting. “You either have to build a business to sell it or hand it over to your children, although it wasn’t taken for granted that any of them would want to be involved.”

There’s no sign of Geoff and Gin handing over completely any time soon, they are very much a part of the business they worked so hard to get off the ground 30 years ago. It’s a credit to their commitment, hard work and belief that they are able to celebrate this achievement. 

For the anniversary collection over 150 beautiful, delicious, covetable and luxurious Christmas hampers have been created and best sellers, such as Silent Night and Christmas Cracker, revamped with new treats and flavours. The hampers never stand still because each year the Virginia Hayward buyers go on the hunt for the best, the new and the totally delicious. Last Christmas, as a result of their hard work, over 375,000 hampers were despatched as personal and corporate gifts.

What’s New? The Berry Box with mulled wine, hot chocolate and some delicious taste-bud-tingling delights such as milk chocolate coated butter fudge and triple chocolate chunk cookies. There's also the Great Taste Award Winners Hamper full of goodies from companies that have won. The prestigious Great Taste Awards competition, organised by the Guild of Fine Foods, is acknowledged as the benchmark for speciality food and drink and has even been described as the ‘Oscars’ of the food world.

A Touch of Class is a tasteful collection of luxury Christmas food such as raspberry, white chocolate and pistachio crumbles, fig cookies, luxury preserves and wine. Snowed In, a striking white hamper with hints of red, creates a true winter feel and it’s full of delicious treats - chocolates, brandy snaps, a white chocolate and cranberry Christmas pudding from The Carved Angel, two bottles of champagne, red wine, port and a raspberry liqueur.

Beside the Fire is perfect for cosy evenings snuggled under the wool fringed throw (included) enjoying sloe gin and English shortbread. The container is a rattan log basket so will have plenty of life beyond Christmas. There’s something for all budgets too from Christmas to a Tea at £14.99 to The Fireside Celebration at £750.

“We are thrilled with all of our 2014 hamper creations, they’re the culmination of a huge amount of hard work from the whole team and we are looking forward to another great Christmas,” says Sam Hayward, Sales Director.

Christmas is all about great and indulgent food. A Virginia Hayward fresh food hamper includes award-winning cheeses, smoked salmon, honey roast sliced ham and smoked beef. To bring everything you could possibly need for Christmas altogether in one hamper, The Fireside Celebration is the most indulgent the company has ever created, containing champagne, wines, Christmas pudding, Christmas cake, chutneys, olives, chocolates and much more. There’s, almost, no extra shopping required!

Dear Sixtyplusurfers



I had my grandkids round at the weekend and they baked a cake for their mum's birthday.

As you can see they made an awesome job of things.

What do you think? It tasted yummy too.

Bella Smyth, Swindon


Dear Bella

Thank you for sending in your lovely picture of your grandchildren.

I can see you all had lots of fun together and they made a delicious cake.

I hope your daughter enjoyed her birthday celebrations and the yummy cake.

Dear Sixtyplusurfers 



A few years ago we opened our reasonable sized suburban garden to the public to raise funds for a charity bike ride in aid of Mencap.

Not expecting many people to turn up we were amazed at those who were queuing to come in and arrived complete with books and their Sunday newspapers, many staying all day!



The reason? Most were flat dwellers who no longer had gardens of their own.

Makes you realise how much gardens mean and how lucky we are to have them.

Jan Kirkcaldy, Southampton


Dear Jan
 
Thank you for telling us about your garden party in aid of Mencap. What a lovely thing to do. And how wonderful that so many of your guests could enjoy your lovely garden while raising money for charity.


We'd love to hear about other readers' fund raising events.

Jenny Itzcovitz, Deputy Editor

 

Dear Sixtyplusurfers 



This is my boxer dog, Prudence aged 9 years. Over the last twenty years we have had the joy of 5 beautiful grandchildren and 3 gorgeous boxer girls.

Last week on 23rd September, I noticed my boxer girl shaking her head quite a lot, however next morning, instead of being greeted by her little stubby tail going when she saw me coming down the stairs, her little body was still. I stroked her beautiful head and she managed to go into the garden. I looked out and noticed she was wobbling, and when I looked at her again, her eyes were glazed and seemed to be going round and round ... my poor girl.

My husband was ill and not able to take her to the vet, so I rang my daughter and she managed to carry her down to her car, and take us to the vet. The vet examined Prue and said she either had an inner ear infection or had, had a stroke, which may have effected her brain, to give her medication and if no better take her back the next day and she may need to be put to sleep.

It seemed like my world had come to an end. Armed with steroids, antibiotics, eye cream and ear cream, we headed home. We were syringe feeding her water by that stage. She couldn't stand or even lift her head.

The next morning she tried to stand but fell over so we took her back to the vet and she gave us some liquid dog food and sachets to put in her water. She loved the liquid soup and the next day although wobbly she was back on her feet .... her head tilted to a funny angle.

We took her back to the vet and the vet was very pleased with her progress. By this time she was able to walk into the vets - a bit wobbly but she walked.

Now the 1st October.... this morning, I came down the stairs and that little stumpy tail was going forty to the dozen! MY GIRL IS BACK....a little wobbly, a bit of a tilt to her head but after a lot of nursing and cuddles she is back.... MY PRUDENCE..

Pamela Hutchinson, Derby


Dear Pamela
 
What a wonderful story. We are so pleased to hear that Prudence is feeling better and on the mend. It sounds like you have an amazing vet!


We wish her all the best wishes for a speedy recovery.

Caught in the act! I thought my kitten, Sky had been chewing on my aloe vera!



Here is another picture of Sky checking out the bathroom!

Dear Jane

What an adorable kitten. I can see that Sky is enjoying exploring your house and the plants.

If your cat is anything like mine, it might also enjoy drinking the bath water!

Thank You

Thanks so much for getting my Relaxwell Blanket to me so quickly, which I won as a prize from Sixtyplusurfers.

This will be used a lot in the winter months when it gets colder and I'm sure I will really enjoy using it and it will be really useful.

Here is a image of my win.

Readers' Letters

Sixtyplusurfers Star Letter 

  Dear Sixtyplusurfers

 

 

I thought I send you in this email about our local “Secret Group" that we have in Carshalton ....

In 2012 the inhabitants of Carshalton Surrey awoke to find the bridge over Carshalton ponds adorned with sixty knitted ducks, placed there to celebrate sixty years of the queen’s reign. A group of twenty ladies their ages ranging from twenty years old to eighty years old, calling themselves the Carshalton Woolly Coven had admitted they were responsible for the “stunt” they are led by a lady calling herself Wanda, they also have a knitted Witch called Wanda which is the groups mascot when asked why a Witch?

The group said, “have you heard us laugh” No one knows who these ladies are, when interviewed by the local paper they knitted themselves face masks to keep their identities a secret, and they place their knitted creations out in the dead of the night.



After the ducks were displayed on the bridge they were sold to raise money for the Headly court rehabilitation unit in Epsom Surrey which helps injured soldiers.

In February 2013 the group were at it again, this time for our neighbouring town of Wallington, the group had made a 5ft banner covered in knitted hearts to celebrate valentine’s day, they placed the banner in the doorway of the British heart foundation shop this time adding the following poem.

The Woolly Coven of Carshalton, have worked together to say, to all people of Wallington, here’s to Valentine’s Day.

At the British heart foundation, there was a covert operation, two hundred woolly hearts to share, you can buy them to show you care. With love from Wanda and the Woolly Coven of Carshalton. Sadly this banner was stolen.



Later that year it was Carshalton’s time again for another Woolly surprise, the Yarn bombers as the group were now being called by the local press had struck again, this time to celebrate the birth of baby Prince George.


The group knitted Teddy bears with little blue cardigans and hung them on a “Chandelier” outside our local museum Honeywood lodge, along with it their now trademark poem. “Congratulations to Kate & Will, Hope the Chandelier fits the bill, it’s here to celebrate a baby born to be great. The Woolly Coven knitted and stuffed, these Teds for you so you’re chuffed. This time the group raised money for SCBU unit at St Helier hospital Carshalton Surrey.



These amazing kind hearted, talented, but very mischievous ladies have gone on to knit little pumpkins and ghosts to hang in the village for Halloween.



I can’t wait to see what they will do next.

Trudy Simpson, Surrey


Dear Trudy

Thank you for telling us all about about the Carshalton Woolly Coven. I can see you are on a mission to make Carshalton 'Cute and Cuddly'. It's also fabulous that you are raising money for charity along the way.

We are delighted to let you know that you are the winner of our Star Letter. The prize is a St Kew Gardener's Trug Gift Hamper from Rainbow Flowers & Gifts.

  Dear Sixtyplusurfers

 
Fantastic Holiday Win to Madeira with
  Silver Travel

 

 

After writing lots of reviews we were picked as the winners of the Silver Travel Competition run by Sixtyplusurfers to go to Madeira, a pearl in the Atlantic.

We stayed at the lovely Quinta Bela vista hotel just above Funchal. It had a stunning swimming pool & bar overlooking the bay. The climate was perfect & we took a drive round the island to the Atlantic coast to see these natural rock made swimming pools.



We ate huge fresh sardines at the Catchelote restaurant watching the waves crashing on the rocks below.




We took the famous cable car ride Up from the town to the Botanical garden and dared ride on the exciting toboggan ride 1 mile down the steep road feeling we would be tipped out any minute!



We had an interesting tour of Blandy's wine (Madeira) and enjoyed the talk and free tasting at the end. Madeira is well worth a visit for the all round climate. If you are a walker this is for you.

Susie Groom, Devon

Dear Susie
 
Thank you for telling us about your lovely holiday to Madeira with Silver Travel. It looks like you had a fabulous time.

We'd love to hear from other readers who have won prizes from Sixtyplusurfers.

  Dear Sixtyplusurfers
 

When my little Griffon Bruxellious dog, Roly passed away aged fourteen I was extremely sad, as many pet owners can appreciate, but I did not feel I could get another dog.

Being retired my husband and I wanted to be able to enjoy more holidays, and days out. The solution was provided by The Cinnamon Trust who signed me up as a volunteer. It is a national charity that provides elderly, and terminally ill people with support in walking pets, or even fostering them in times of crisis.

For many elderly people their pet is a lifeline providing love and company so it is very important that there is a good solution in times of need, and family are not always available to assist.

I have met a lovely lady who has had a heart attack so unable to walk her Sheltie, and I take him out twice a week with my husband for about an hour. We both enjoy our little chats, and I am maintaining my walking too. Win, win situation for all!

Cinnamon Trust are always looking for volunteers so if you would like to help in your area, or you need help, further information can be obtained by telephone 01736 757900.

Or email Sherry@cinnamon.org.uk  or look on www.cinnamon.org.uk 

Jo Jones, Burton on Trent


Dear Jo

Thank you for telling us about the Cinnamon Trust. What a great way to help other people out with their pets in times of need, and also giving you the chance to enjoy some lovely animals and meet new people.

  Dear Sixtyplusurfers
 

Since retiring 2 years ago with spare time on my hands I started to volunteer with Age concern as a Befriender and was introduced to a lady that they thought I would get on with and visa versa.

This lady is called Doris and she is 98 years old and as soon as we were introduced we knew we would become great friends.

Doris told me all about her life and I gradually told her things about myself and every Wednesday I would phone her and ask, "Up for a visit Doris?"

And every time she would reply, "If it’s not too much trouble."

Bless her, she always had a tray with the teacups ready  for  me and  we’d  chat and have such laughs. I loved to hear her laugh.

My visits went on for over two years but sadly she has been moved up to Bristol to stay with her niece and I miss her so much. I befriended her and she befriended me!!

Volunteering has been so worthwhile and now I have another lady to visit called Gladys. I never thought just visiting and having a chat could bring so much happiness to someone who lives alone. Anyone with a few hours to spare should try it, it might change your life like it did to me.

Elena Stansbury


Dear Elena

Thank you for telling us abut working as a Befriender with age Concern - that's a wonderful thing to do. And lovely that you made such a special friend.

It's a shame that Doris moved away, but lovely that you are now visiting Gladys. I'm sure you are giving her so much comfort and that it is bringing you so much happiness too.

Dear Sixtyplusurfers

On my first trip abroad as a teenager (I am 65 now) I wanted to know what Pizza was like. In those days it wasn't eaten very much in England.

I went in to a restaurant in the resort and asked for it. The waiters decided to have a laugh at my expense pretending not to know what I was asking for. Eventually they arrived with a plate of peas! I could here roars of laughter coming from the kitchen.

After a minute or two one of the waiters came to take the plate away and asked me to wait a minute. Wondering what was coming next I felt sense of anxiety, however I was floored by the wonderful sight of a huge pizza covered with just about every topping you could imagine.

I have never tasted Pizza like it since that day. To make make things even better the manager told me it was on the house.

I brought my parents there the next night and nearly every night of the Holiday.

Paul Brear, Bradford

Dear Paul

What a funny story, and a great way to try a really authentic pizza!

 

I can understand why you've never forgotten it, and that pizza can never taste quite the same as your first one.

Jenny Itzcovitz, Deputy Editor

 

Dear Sixtyplusurfers

It was pouring down with rain and my sister in her orange hi-viz jacket had taken our dog Sam out for his morning walk.

About an hour later when the front door bell rang I looked out, saw the back of an orange jacket and assuming she couldn't get down to her door key quickly opened the door with the dog's towel in my hand.

Surprise, surprise it was the postman with a letter that needed a signature. He did laugh when I explained that I had thought he was my sister with the dog and I was just getting ready to give him a good rub down!

Joan Greenberg

Dear Joan

What a funny story. It was lucky your postman had a good sense of humour!

At the interval he told us about Meeta’s career and her schedule of performances.

Thank you for the tickets.

Best wishes

Teresa Shardlow

Dear Teresa

I'm delighted to hear that you enjoyed the Crazy for Gershwin show. And how wonderful that you were sitting next to the fiancé of Meeta Raval.

We Will Remember Them

Left, left, left Right left
Marching sounds we know so well
The soldiers march on remembrance day
All remembering the day they fell.

They will march for ever more
Officers, corporals and sergeants too
They march with pride, heads held high
They all know what they must do

Poppies float down from above
And land on soldiers far below
Eleven o'clock, not a sound
People remembering long ago

Big wars and forgotten wars
Soldiers fought and solders died
Oh yes we will remember them
As we shed tears that are hard to hide

Barry J Winters, Devon

Dear Barry

Thank you for sending in your powerful poem.

We will never forget those brave men who fought for our country.

Dear Sixtyplusurfers

Sherlock Holmes Mystery Books

Sherlock Holmes is what I like
To find out who murdered the victim that night
So many different characters to choose one is so hard
All we know is the victim was caught off guard
Perhaps it’s the gardener with his so many tools
Perhaps it’s the owner with his so many rules
You never know until it’s the end
And then you find out it was just his friend.

Linda Thorn, Melton Mowbray

Dear Linda

Thank you for sending in your poem about Sherlock Holmes. I also enjoy reading a good Agatha Christie murder mystery.

If you get the chance and haven't seen it yet, I would thoroughly recommend seeing The Mouse Trap play in London.


Jenny Itzcovitz, Deputy Editor
 

 Dear Sixtyplusurfers

  We decided to have a takeaway so rang for a delivery.
  I asked my husband to see if there were any films on
  TV to watch while we ate, as I was getting the plates
  ready.

  I heard him shout, 'Saving Ryan's Privates' is on!

  I think he meant 'Saving Private Ryan'. I didn't fancy
  eating after that!

  Jane Whitaker, Kent

  Dear Jane

  I'm not surprised that put you off your takeaway!

  I hope you enjoyed your meal anyway and the title
  didn't put you off the film ....

  Murray Jacobs, Editor
