A bit of seasonal Sanity on Sunday

Have you bought your 2020 Christmas jumper yet? Perhaps you’ve already starting wearing it?

Full disclosure here from June – she’s never bought one, never worn one and has no intention of ever doing so…

But she couldn’t help being intrigued by this recent post on Rosalyn Palmer‘s website – and what perfect timing, with Ros back on the show this weekend!

If like her you want to find out what Ros has to say about Christmas jumpers being all about connection, make sure you’re listening in this weekend, when she’ll be on the phone to the studio to explain all.

It’s part of her regular Sanity on Sunday slot, starting just after 11.10am, when she’ll also have an update on her recent move to Lincolnshire and how she’s been adapting her coaching and wellbeing business during these strange times.

Make sure you’re tuned in to 107.8FM or listening online between 10am and 12 noon on Sunday for all this and more from the Girls Around Town

But what’s the biggest question of all and the first one June will be asking when Ros joins her?

It’s obvious really – even though she’ll only be heard and not seen, is Ros sitting there at the other end of the phone wearing her own seasonal sweater??

Zooming in on health and hospitality

Things were very different when Johanna Thompson first joined the Girls Around Town to talk about the meetings and events organised by the Wellness Network for people working in the health and wellbeing industry.

Back in September 2019, she and Kayleigh Langley were both in the studio chatting face to face with June, something that’s definitely off the agenda these days of course.

But that’s not stopping her bringing everyone up to date with the group’s activities this Sunday, when she’ll be on the phone from just after 11.20am with all the latest news…

Like many groups in the region, around the country and across the world, their regular meetings these days are now held online. And they’re on Sunday mornings too, from 10am to 11am, so no doubt Johanna will be talking about the one she hosted while June was busy bringing you the first hour of your favourite weekend show here on 107.8FM!

If you work in the hospitality business, you’ll definitely want to hear what she has to say about new meetings in the pipeline designed specifically for you. With special guest speakers sharing ideas and offering support, they could be just what you need right now and they’ll be absolutely free to join.

Make sure you’re tuned in or listening online to find out more about these and other upcoming Wellness Network meetings…

And don’t miss the latest news about a very special event taking place on Sunday afternoon, when Radio Newark joins forces with the town and district councils, local artists and local schools to bring you live on air and online coverage of Newark’s Virtual Christmas Lights Switch On!

The sweet spot

If you’ve been listening to Girls Around Town since the early days, you may remember one particular feature that used to be on the show quite regularly…

Well, next weekend it’s back, courtesy of former GAT presenter Sue Jackson, now known as Sue The Cook, who’ll be joining June to share the recipe for one of her favourite desserts.

Make sure you’re listening in from 11.20am when The Chocolate Moment makes a welcome return!

Unfortunately Sue will only be at the other end of the phone, ringing in to the studio, so she won’t be treating June to a taste of this one.

But with just five ingredients and barely any prep time, what’s to stop June rushing home after the show to whip up her own Chocolate Mousse?

Based on a recipe by celebrity chef James Martin. the hardest part about it will be leaving it in the fridge for at least two hours before tucking in.

You know what they say though – good things come to those who wait!

And if you want to try it for yourself, you won’t even need to make a note of the ingredients and method while you’re listening in. Just check back here or on Facebook after the show and the recipe will be waiting for you…

Tune in to 107.8FM or listen online between 10am and 12 noon next Sunday for all the usual good music, chat and more that makes Girls Around Town the sweet spot of the week on Radio Newark!
