Emily, Jessica and Camilla Staveley-Taylor are a sister act who continue to gather fans and momentum since launching their debut album ‘Dead & Born & Grown’ last autumn. They explain to Jenni how they’ve only ever sung one way and that’s in three part harmony.

For some, retirement means a rest … for others a new life. For former teacher, Valerie Beacock, it means becoming a steam boat captain in the Lake District. She’s the first woman to take the helm of The Gondola – the famous steam yacht on Coniston Water which has been carrying tourists since the 1850s. Valerie has taken her Boat Master Certificate and Caz Graham joined her, as she put the Gondola through her paces in preparation for the tourist season ahead.
