The most popular options are the quick-and-easy triple fold, or folding the outer edges towards the centre before folding in thirds, to create a plusher, more spa-like look. But what do you do? And who knew folding towels could be so controversial?

Hi everyone,

We're finally able to kick off the community self-defence school now we're out of lockdown. We'll kick off informally on Tues 7 July during the school holidays here in Pinehaven.

Ages 12 and up, all stages and levels of fitness, confidence, experience welcome! The club focuses on self-defence using a Wing Chun base (Chinese boxing) and incorporating elements of Kickboxing and Filipino short sticks. A warm, challenging, but encouraging environment where the aim is not to teach people how to fight but rather teach people how not to need to fight. Find all the details here: www.schoolofselfdefence.net....

Feel free to get in touch with any questions. Thanks neighbours!

🐮 Have you 'herd' of MooGoo ? 🐮
MooGoo (instore now) was first made when the founder adapted a cream used in dairy farms to help a family member with a skin problem. The dairy version of “udder cream” was designed to heal the cow’s udders and keep them in good condition for milking. It was full of skin repair ingredients and no gimmicks. Cows don’t care too much about the latest fad in skin care, or even “Organic blends of Horsetail and Bergamot…” They do need healthy skin on their most valuable assets. Although the original cream used in the dairy farms was legendary for its skin healing properties, it was thick and greasy. MooGoo modified the cream for human use by keeping all the skin healing properties but making it non-greasy.
MooGoo has a large range products to help with lots of different problems, from dealing with irritable skin and itchy scalps, to natural sun care products and a Baby Range for the little ones. The ingredient philosophy remains the same: To make effective products using healthy ingredients, that we are comfortable using on ourselves and our loved ones.
