Sixtyplusurfers Competition

Win Dobble Beach

Win Dobble Beach from Esdevium Games

Sixtyplusurfers has teamed with Esdevium Games to offer three lucky readers the chance to win Dobble Beach, a great family game to take on holiday.

In Dobble Beach, players compete with each other to find the matching symbol between one card and another. Every card is unique and has only one symbol in common with any other in the deck. The match can be difficult to spot as the size and positioning of the symbols can vary on each card.

Dobble Beach features fully waterproof playing cards and a lightweight carry bag making it a perfect travel companion

As the game is based on reactions and visual perception, rather than knowledge or strategy, there is no advantage for adults over children, making it the perfect family game. Dobble Beach is a variant of Dobble, but with a summer twist. Pictures on the cards have seaside themed images such as bucket, spade, deckchair, camera and sunglasses.

Dobble Beach is a game of speed, observation and reflexes and is the ideal holiday game. It features fully waterproof playing cards and a lightweight carry bag making it a perfect travel companion.

Win Dobble Beach from Esdevium Games

Every card is unique and has only one picture in common with every other card in the deck. The game is presented in a handy tin and contains five mini quick and easy games to keep you entertained throughout your holiday.

Suitable for ages 6 and over. Price is
£12.99.

Buy it now for your summer holidays from www.amazon.co.uk

Treat Fungal Nail Infections with Abicin Resin

Abicin Resin Lacquer

Have you had a good look at your toenails recently? It’s not a very glamorous subject, but you may have noticed a bit of discolouring of the nails or that they have become cloudy. As we get older, we also become more susceptible to nail problems. Other health conditions can also give rise to changes in the nail appearance.
 
New Abicin lacquer is a natural based product which utilises the antifungal properties of Norwegian Spruce Resin. It has been developed by Finnish Scientists who recognised the traditional use of Spruce Resin in Finnish folk remedies. Having analysed the composition of the resin, they identified the reasons why it acts on both bacteria and fungi – including the ones responsible for nail infections.

These occur as a result of infection of the keratin layer under the nail by a fungus called a dermatophyte. These infections can be difficult to treat and may affect up to 10% of the population in the UK at any one time. Their incidence increases with age. If you are aged over 60, there is a one in five chance you will have a nail infection and if you have diabetes, this increases to a one in three chance. Half of those aged over 70 will have a nail infection.

For the first time, a naturally sourced antifungal lacquer has been shown to be effective in clearing fungal nail infections, cleanly and simply with a twice a week usage. Treat your toes to a naturally based remedy. Time to give Abicin a try before it needs tablets.

    Special 10% Discount for Abicin

For further information and to purchase Abicin, please visit www.abicin.co.uk

  Improve Your Credit
      Score with the
  ClearScore Chatbot

 

Improve Your Credit Score with the ClearScore Chatbot
 

ClearScore, the UK’s no. 1 credit checking service, is aiming to help millions of people improve their credit score with the launch of ‘Coaching’, an easy to use free of charge service. Coaching is the first chatbot-based programme in the world to help you improve your credit worthiness and ability to get the best financial deals available.
 
Depending on whether you have a thin credit file, have faced financial challenges in the past or just want to fine tune your finances, ClearScore will automatically recommend the right Coaching programme for you – accessible through the free ClearScore account.


ClearScore  is a service which allows consumers to access their credit report and scores for free as often as they need or want.

Three reasons to check your Credit Score:
 

1. If you’ve ever been rejected for credit, checking your report can help you find out why.

2. Put yourself in the best position to get lower interest rates.

3. You can spot identity fraud quickly.

Checking your credit report will mean you’ll be able to see any new activity on your account – including any activity you may not recognise. So, in the unlikely event you’re a victim of identity fraud, you’ll be able to notice the signs quickly (and if you check your report regularly, you’ll be able to spot this even quicker).

The first sign of identity fraud is often when a hard credit search (aka credit check) is carried out on your account. If this isn’t done with your consent, it could mean someone is trying to take out credit (i.e. a credit card or loan) in your name.

Your credit report will list your history of hard and soft searches so you can easily keep an eye on the searches that might be fraudulent.

  Oeco Garden Offices

Oeco Garden Offices


Oeco have been supplying garden buildings for over a decade now, and one of their unique selling points is the price you see is the price you pay. This includes the cost of delivery & installation, which few other garden offices companies offer.

Oeco Garden Offices  are available in 10 styles: 5 classics & 5 contemporary. The contemporary styled garden offices have Anthracite trimmings along the rooflines and certain outer edges.

When Oeco first started installing and supplying in 2006, only a select range of structures was available including garden rooms, offices and lodges with an apex roof. Over the years they have expanded to Garden Pods, which start at a smaller size of 2.5m x 2.5m.

There is a large gap in the market for strong and heavy duty garden sheds. Recently Oeco have applied their expertise & knowledge to create a range of designed style garden sheds. While these sheds aren’t in your typical price range for a garden shed, they most certainly aren’t going to blow over in a gust of wind or start to rot after a few years.
