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.

 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.

How to Enter the Competition!

It’s always a pleasure to see all of your lovely photographs in the Photograph Gallery on the Sixtyplusurfers Chat & Socialise page. So this month we want you to get your cameras out again and post some more fabulous photos.

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 some beautiful flowers or scenery, the birds in your garden or in the park. It might be a close-up of some animals or wildlife, or the plants  growing in your garden.

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.

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 end 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!

Churchill Retirement Living 

Churchill Retirement Living is one of the largest retirement house builders in the UK, specialising in high quality one and two bedroom apartments for the over 60’s.

Designed for the active retiree who wants to continue living independently, our apartments offer a comfortable, secure place to live and call your own, with the option to socialise with other Owners and get involved in the community as much or as little as you like.

A Churchill Retirement apartment is ideal for the young at heart, looking to downsize from a large family home, which may become costly and difficult to maintain as they get older.

With an apartment at a Churchill Lodge you still own your apartment, but the onsite management company, Millstream Management Services, provides a dedicated Lodge Manager responsible for all maintenance, service and ongoing management of the Lodge, leaving you free to enjoy doing the things you want to do.

A Churchill apartment gives you all the same independence of your family home but with added security and peace of mind. You can bring small pets with you when you move in and continue to do your own shopping and cooking, guest suites are available to book at every lodge for friends and family to stay in.

But what really makes our Lodges a unique place is the ready-made social life that is open to you from the moment you move in. You can attend coffee mornings, fish and chip suppers and a host of other regular social events, or visit the Owners’ Lounge whenever you like to spend time getting to know your neighbours.

Many Churchill developments also include sociable coffee bars, roof terraces and landscaped gardens where you’ll often find someone to chat to.
