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.

Save Money by House Sharing
Fed-up living alone and want to save some money? House sharing is a great option. Home sharing, or co-living as it’s called these days, is more and more popular in later-life as it offers not only financial benefits, saving on household expenses, rents and mortgages etc, but also because it offers the possibility of having help around the house and companionship.
House sharing is not a new idea, but it is more unusual for older people to house share. However, with an increasing number of people either living in houses that are too big for them and not being able to look after a big house, or living in small one-person dwellings and feeling a bit isolated from other people, more and more people are considering this option.
Sharing with other like-minded people can be fun and provides companionship
When Nick and business partner Eva recognised that their parents were feeling lonely and that they themselves, now in their 50s, had also found it hard to rent a room they struck upon the idea of creating a service for older people.
Cohabitas is a house sharing website specifically for people in later life. It offers advice and inspiration for those new to house sharing or who haven’t shared for a while, and also connects people looking for a like-minded house or flat mate with those who have rooms.
Who is Cohabitas & house sharing for?
For people who have spare rooms:
• Reluctant down-sizers: As a recent Gransnet research report discovered, around 1/3 of people planning to downsize do so reluctantly. Having a lodger allows these home-owners to stay in their beloved home for longer, earning valuable rent and getting some help with chores around the house and the garden.
• Live-in landlords: Many people need to have a lodger for some years to help pay their mortgage or rent. Because larger shared flats and houses are cheaper per person to live in this benefits both the landlord and the tenant; it’s just a case of finding the right person.
• Those who are widowed or separated: after a few years of living alone and the initial shock of finding yourself alone, many people seek companionship and support from having someone else around
For people who want to find a room or house to share:
• People who want to save money: there are an increasing number of people in mid to later life who do not own a house or flat and who need to find cost-effective ways of affording a comfortable and secure home. House sharing provides financial savings because it is cheaper to run a shared flat than a single-dwelling.
• People who want to have some fun and meet people: even if financial reasons are not top of your needs, then having company and enjoying life is important. People increasingly choose to live in larger flats and houses with others to allow them contact with others. Especially after retirement, divorce or separation, building new social connections is key.
• People who want to relocate to a new area: moving into a shared house or flat is a great way to get to know a new area. Your house mates can give you advice on where to go and even introduce you to local clubs and services, making the whole thing seem less stressful and challenging.

Treat Fungal Nail Infections with 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
Please use the promotion code SURFER10 at the checkout to get an exclusive 10% discount on the website purchase price.

How to Enter the Competition!
This month, to celebrate the spring and the lovely warm weather, we would love to see all your fabulous photographs.
All you need to do is get our your cameras and smart phones, take some stunning photographs and then post them in the Photograph Gallery on the Sixtyplusurfers Chat & Socialise page.
We’re looking for a photograph that will dazzle and brighten up our Chat & Socialise page. And also one that has a story to tell. Make it eyecatching, interesting and stunning. Something really special.
It could be a picture showing beautiful flowers, some colourful plants growing in your garden, the birds in the park, some sheep, cows or wild animals in the countryside, or a local riverside scene.
Perhaps you have a picture of your grandchildren or a recent family celebration. Maybe you have had a party or gathering with family and friends. And you’re all having fun together.
Or maybe you have recently been on holiday and have some photos of somewhere that you have travelled. Have you been on a cruise, had a sightseeing holiday, climbed a mountain, had a UK break or visited a place of unspoilt beauty? We’d love to see some pictures.
Your entry might show a local beauty spot with ducks, lake, trees, flowers and wildlife. Or maybe a harbour or seaside which you have visited with your partner or dogs.
We would also like to see pictures of your pets. So if your cat is snoozing on the kitchen table, your dog is splashing in the garden pond, your rabbit is looking cute and cuddly, then please send it in.
And if there is a story behind your photograph, then we’d love to hear about it. You can include a description with your photograph. Tell us where it was taken, who are the people or animals in your picture, and why you like it.
We would also encourage other readers to make friendly comments about the photographs in our competition.
The photograph must be all your own work, or one that a family member or friend has taken.
All Photographs MUST be posted in the Photograph Gallery on the Chat & Socialise page to be in with a chance of winning the prize.
There is no limit to the amount of photographs you can send in. The more the merrier! But we do stress that all entries must be your own work!
We will choose the best photograph at the beginning of May – so get out your cameras or mobile phones and start snapping. Enjoy some fresh air and take some great photographs! We’re looking forward to seeing some interesting pictures.
And please read our terms & conditions thoroughly before you enter the competition!
