Angellica Bell, BBC One’s presenter, spoke with the designer of the RHS Chelsea Flower Show about the theme he chose and the member of trust that sponsored it. Due to pandemics, the prestigious event was moved to September 21-26.
During the show, Angellica spoke to Dame Christine Beasley, a former chief nursing officer from The Burdett Trust for Nursing who has sponsored the project.
Dame Beasley referred to Florence Nightingale, the pioneer of modern nursing practice and social reform as a “remarkable lady”.
The project will reflect her pioneering efforts, but it will also recognize how she has inspired change.
Christine said that they didn’t want to just look back but also wanted to see the future.
According to the former chief nurse officer, Florence was a “miracle flower collector” which is why a number of her pressed flowers are on display at the museum.
Christine said that Florence was aware of the positive effects nature has on mental health.
Christine said that she strongly connected it to the power and beauty of nature. She was not only interested in flowers for their medicinal properties, but also because she observed that those who had been exposed to nature saw a positive change in their mental well-being.
Robert Meyers, who was responsible for the design of the garden, had started the work in 2019. However the pandemic caused the event to be postponed in 2020.
Is it possible to see this? Changes to your vision can be a sign your cholesterol is creeping up to dangerous levels. These three symptoms are not common signs that high cholesterol is affecting your vision and eyesight.
A high cholesterol level is a warning sign you should make lifestyle changes quickly before your risk of a stroke or heart attack.
The British Heart Foundation states that high cholesterol levels are linked to one-fourth of deaths in the UK from cardiovascular and circulatory disease.
Cholesterol, a fat substance found in the blood, is called cholesterol. Cholesterol is a fatty substance that your body needs for many functions. However, too much cholesterol can cause blockages in blood vessels and lead to serious health problems.
High cholesterol is caused by a fatty diet, insufficient exercise, obesity, excessive smoking, and too much alcohol.
As hormone levels drop, symptoms can begin to appear during the climacteric period. Menstrual periods may still be regular at this stage, but two signs of the impending menopause include night sweats and mood changes. According to the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists, mood changes can be attributed to a decline in progesterone and oestrogen levels. The organisation said that mood swings can also be caused by night sweats and lack of sleep.
Women’s experiences in the period leading up to menopause can be affected by lifestyle factors such as exercise and diet.
The average UK age at which a woman can reach menopause in her 50s is 51.
Women can experience the natural symptoms of menopause between 45 and 55.
The urge to go to the bathroom more often may increase as oestrogen levels fall.
DO NOT MISS:
Urination discomfort can also lead to bladder leakage and more infections of the urinary tract (UTIs).
It is possible for the skin to become more dry and more prone to bruising.
The NHS said that “unwanted facial hair growth could also be caused by a lack of estrogen.”
You might also experience the following symptoms:
Sometimes itchy skin and the sensation that someone is crawling onto them
Feeling tingling in your arms and legs
A burning sensation in your mouth
Tenderness of the breasts (although they might shrink slightly)
Gastrointestinal problems such as diarrhoea and wind, indigestion and wind, and bloating
Allergies are on the rise
Modification in the body odour
Modifications to the fingernails
Unspecified feelings of fear or dread.
It is important to exercise to stay healthy after menopause. Evidence suggests that a more active lifestyle can lead to fewer perimenopausal symptoms.
The NHS is certified that aerobic, sustained, and consistent exercises, such as running, biking, and swimming, are the best.
You should avoid exercising for at least two hours before going to bed.
It’s when a woman experiences 12 consecutive months without periods that it is called post-menopause.
The Department for Transport statistics show that there were approximately 1,580 road fatalities in the twelve months ending June 2020. This includes three months of a national lockdown. There were 24,470 killed or seriously injured casualties in reported road traffic accidents for the year ending June 2020.
This is an 11 percent decrease compared with the year ended June 2019. However, a quarter was locked down when road crime plummeted.
At all severity levels, the total casualties were 131 200.
The UK is legal to use dash cams. They can be used in many cases to protect drivers and help with insurance claims.
The dash cam should not be in the way of the driver’s vision when driving.
Camden Town is a place that brings back memories from my youth. I remember lazy afternoons wandering through the maze of market stalls while listening to late-night boozy music at various venues, including the Roundhouse and the Electric Ballroom. It was a great pleasure to receive an invitation to stay at the Holiday Inn in Camden.
The Holiday Inn Camden Lock is an IHG 4 star Hotel. It’s centrally located in Camden Town, it was great fun. The hotel overlooks Camden’s beautiful Regents Canal, and it is ideal for exploring the rest of the area.
We were greeted warmly upon entering the lobby. Then, we took the elevator to the fifth floor and found our Penthouse Room. It was simple and clean, with only a comfortable bed and two leather chairs.
Everything we required was provided, including a TV mounted on the wall, mini-fridge and iron. There were also free Wi-Fi and coffee and tea making facilities. It was spotless and had a bath, shower and large washing area that included Geneva Guild products.
But the best part was still to come. When I stepped out onto the large corner terrace, I was awestruck by London’s spectacular view and bird’s-eye view of the canal below. This is the perfect spot to relax and prepare for an exciting night.
Camden Hells beer and snack were kept in the mini-fridge. We enjoyed our beers on the terrace while taking in the stunning view. If it was too cold to go outside, the mini-fridge had enough food and snacks so you could still lie down on the bed while taking in the views through the windows that ran the length of the space.
The mezzanine level served breakfast, which included a variety of cereals and pastries, as well as continental cheeses and meats. Friendly and accommodating staff offered cooked pancakes or omelettes upon request.
The lobby’s ground floor also has a restaurant and bar area. Here you can enjoy all day dining, including snacks, dips and toasted sandwiches as well as burgers, salads, and sandwhiches. You can return to Holiday Inn when you’re done exploring and you won’t have to worry about finding a place to eat.
Camden Tube Station is a short walk away. The hotel can be reached easily from the West End attractions and entertainment by walking only 4 minutes. All three stations of the Euston, King’s Cross, and St Pancras International trains are within a few minutes by bus or tube. It’s also a short walk from London’s Regent’s Park, London Zoo and London’s stunning Central Station. There are many things to do right outside your door!
Camden was a residential neighborhood since 1790s. It became bustling in London after the Grand Union Canal was built and the rails were improved. Camden, one of London’s most famous areas is vibrant and colourful. Camden is perhaps most well-known for its vibrant street markets and street art, as well as the vibrant music scene.
This is a place for counter-culture – teenagers, punks, and goths are all there in full force. Street markets and shops sell alternative clothing, jewelry, and other curiosities.
Camden Market actually consists of several markets, each one with its own unique feel: Camden Lock Village and Camden Lock Market; The Stables Market; Buck Street Village. On weekends, the streets bustle with tourists and locals looking for alternatives. Street food vendors emit wonderful aromas that waft down the streets. You can either take in the sights and feel the vibe or go on a relaxing walk or picnic along the canal to enjoy the tranquility and watch the boats pass by.
You can find many more restaurants, shops and places along High Street. This includes a brand new leisure and retail destination, Hawley Wharf Camden, which opened in August. Hawley Wharf, London’s latest development after lockdown, offers both independent retailers and 10 London-based restaurants.
Camden is known for its vibrant nightlife scene. There are many charming bars, pubs and other great venues. These are some of my favourite music venues, all located within walking distance of the Holiday Inn.
