Sunday – best day of the week once more!

At last, the news you’ve all been waiting for – Newark‘s favourite show by, for and about women will be back on 107.8FM and online soon!

There’ll be a few small changes to the format, in line with government guidance about safety and social distancing, but rest assured June, Rosalyn, Rachel and Claire will still be going all out to keep you informed and entertained between 10am and 12 noon every Sunday morning…

Kicking things off on Sunday 12 July, June will be in the studio catching up with fellow presenter Ros by phone in the first hour.

Then in the second hour, it’s time for Wendy Baird from Carriages to give her a call and talk about the fantastic work the team at the Newark café has been doing recently.

Believe it or not, over the last few months literally hundreds of meals have made their way to the homes of Newark residents, many of whom would have normally visited Carriages every Wednesday evening for the Community Café

Make sure you’re listening from 11.20am to find out from Wendy how, with the help of local businesses and lots of willing volunteers, those meals just kept on coming – and will continue to do so.

There’ll be plenty of good music throughout the show too and news of some of the other guests already lined up for the next few weeks…

When lockdown began at the end of March, the Girls Around Town told you they’d be back as soon as possible and finally they’re ready to make good on their promise!

Fringe benefits

Earlier today, June had a phone call out of the blue from a former business contact, asking for help promoting an initiative the local charity he’s involved with is currently running – watch this space, information on that coming soon…

During the conversation, they were chatting about different ways of keeping your spirits up during the current crisis and something he said really struck a chord.

Yes, everyone needs to safe safe, keep fit and eat healthily – remember that all-important five-a-day rule! – but how about this for another five-a-day you should be adding to your list?

Make sure you’re getting five giggles a day!

With that in mind, here’s one of your five for today from the Girls Around Town with a little help from Michael and Karen of Marshalls Hair in Newark.

Double benefits with this little demo – not only is it guaranteed to bring a smile to your face, it shows you how to tackle that out of control fringe, taking you through what not to do and, more importantly, how you should be doing it!

And for those ladies out there whose husbands’ hair needs a trim, watch this space for more help coming from Michael soon…

Food for thought

Today’s top tips, courtesy of Alison Harris who joined the Girls Around Town last September to share some of her thoughts on the importance of mindset when it comes to nutrition…

In these difficult days, there’s plenty of advice on offer about staying safe but one of the things often overlooked is the need to look after your immune system and, more to the point, how to do it.

Here’s what Alison has to say about some of the vitamins, minerals and foods that can help boost your immune system by providing the nutrients to repair and renew the white blood cells that will help you to get well from any illness, not just this one.

So, at the time of writing, we are in a health crisis caused by a pandemic. We are having to live very differently, conform to rules that we don’t like but are for the greater good. Lives have been turned upside down, families are separated and jobs and finances have uncertain outcomes. This state of chaos can be scary and unpredictable and it can sometimes feel like we have no control.

And yet, right now. we are being given the opportunity to stop what we’ve been doing and reflect, re-evaluate and reset our priorities, focus on what’s important to us, our loved ones, communities and the world at large. We have the chance to question the old and create the new and help to fix things that are broken.
