Take Five with Caroline Dale


Caroline Dale is an Alexander Teacher who is on a mission! Over many years, she has seen how babies' posture is often compromised when sitting in buggies, the effects of which can continue into later life. She has created a headrest which can be attached to most buggies which not only supports baby's head, but can also be connected via blue tooth to music or stories to soothe them. Caroline recently launched her crowdfundingcampaignand is looking for your support, whether for yourself if you are a soon to be parent, or as a gift for friends.

Take Five with Caroline Banks



Caroline Banks is a London based artist whose work is drawn on the nature of time and memory, recording the intangible. She uses brush and ink, as well as gesso, paint, gilding and piercing to capture the circle, a constant preoccupation which forms the core of much of Caroline’s current work, which is beautiful and contemplative. She has been a regular exhibitor at the Other Art Fair in London and Bristol. 2 of her largest paintings on currently on show at Guy Goodfellow, London, with a further 2 pieces in a group show with 

Take Five with Mark Powers



Mark Powersis an author of children' books (his latest, 'Spy Toys: Out of Control' has just been published). I first met Mark many years ago when we were both working in theatre and it was clear then that he was going to have to find a way to harness his over active imagination and sense of humour for the benefit of a reading public! Luckily for us, he has brought both together for his new series of Spy Toy books. The premise of the stories is that "the world's leading toy manufacturer makes playthings for the rich and famous, and every toy they create contains a tiny computerised brain and a unique personality.

Have a Good Scream!



I have a friend who screams under bridges.

This is not some kind of phobia, but something she does when needed as a stress buster.  On her walk home from work, she passes under a railway bridge. If she times it right and there is no-one else about, she waits until a train goes over and screams. The noise of the train under the echo-y bridge is far louder than she could ever be and she finds it a brilliant release of any stress she has built up during the day. Once the train has gone, she continues her walk home refreshed and ready for her family.

Change Your Mind, Not the Past



How much time have you spent worrying about something you can’t change?

When I studied for my degree, in my late 30s, it was a pragmatic decision, to help me get the level of job I wanted in my scramble up the career ladder. My only goal was to successfully complete the course, with no thoughts of the level of degree (2:2, 2:1, etc.).

As I worked my way through the modules, getting extremely good marks for my essays, tutors muttered about me getting a 1st. It started me thinking that this might be possible, so I worked even harder.
