It’s starting to look like we will all be spending a little more time at home again over the next few months and with the colder weather approaching, it could be a costly time for home owners.
With more people working from home once again and curfews being introduced, it’s an opportune time to invest in insulating your home – not just to keep it cosy – but also efficient in terms of heat retention and cost savings.
John Evans of home improvement specialists Stormclad, said: “Over the last six months we have all spent more time at home than usual, and our homes now more than ever play a vital role in keeping us safe and secure as well as being the backdrop to home working, home learning and everything in between.
“To ensure the home remains a pleasant place to be for all the family, temperature plays an key role and as it begins to get colder outside, it could be the perfect time to make home improvements to increase the homes thermal efficiency.
“There are a number of simple modifications you can make to your home to reduce heat which can be installed in a matter of hours, days or weeks.”
There are countless gaps in our homes that we usually never even think about. However, these are letting out the warmth from, and letting the cold inside. Often you can fill all the gaps and holes yourself with some simple DIY.
Internal doors are a good place to start when trying to cover drafts. You can buy removable draft excluders such as the classic sausage dog, or have a draught excluding door seal fitted underneath the door. Ensure you keep these shut as often as possible to retain the heat in each room, and to stop draughts coming through.
Replace windows with modern double glazing
Windows are one of the most prone areas to heatloss in the home. An old single paned window will emit around 84% of a room’s heat into the cold air outside so it is definitely worth the investment.
Installing double glazed windows will retain the heat in your home by trapping a layer of air between two panes of glass which stops the air from circulating, resulting in a decrease of heat loss across the window. With modern double glazed windows, the space between the panes is often filled with denser argon gas which will slow down heat loss even further.
Older windows can look outdated and deteriorate quickly, so replacing them a with durable frame such as aluminium will transform the look of your home outside and in.
External door replacements
Older doors are prone to holes and gaps which allows draughts to enter the home. Doors can often become warped and unsettled in their existing frame, which means its time for an upgrade.
Solid wood doors are a popular choice as timber is a natural insulator, absorbing and retaining heat, as well as composite doors, which are a thick door made of a combination of timber and ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene) – a robust thermo-plastic door skin.
Top top: Ensure your door is fitted with a quality letterbox flap or brush, to reduce the amount of heat loss from the letterbox.
Do you avoid this room in the winter because it’s too cold? Could this be your new home office? Making changes to your old conservatory can vastly reduce the amount of heat lost and make the space welcoming and usable all year round.
Older conservatories are often made with plastic polycarbonate roofs which have very little thermal insulation. Replacing the roof with high performance glass, a solid roof or a combination of the two, is one of the most effective improvements you can make to increase a conservatory’s thermal efficiency, which not just affects the conservatory but the whole home’s thermal efficiency.
Every Autumn, Alzheimer’s Society Memory Walk events across the UK see thousands of people come together to raise money to help defeat dementia.
Sadly, this year, coronavirus meant we had to cancel the large-scale events we all know and love. Instead, we asked people to step out and support us by doing their own personal walks, from July to October, in line with government guidelines.
We’ve been overwhelmed by the enthusiasm and generosity of 1,538 supporters across Yorkshire and Lincolnshire who signed up and helped raise over £1.2 million for Alzheimer’s Society.
We want to say a big thank you to everyone who took part in Memory Walk this year and made a difference to people affected by dementia.
The pandemic has hit people with dementia the hardest, with many of the 850,000 people living with the condition experiencing crippling loneliness and confusion by losing their much-needed routines. Thousands of carers are facing care home visitor bans or are struggling to get a break.
Our services have been used over 2 million times since lockdown began, showing people need us more than ever. But we’re facing a significant loss of fundraising income because of coronavirus.
As Memory Walk season ends, please consider donating to our Coronavirus Appeal or join one of our next fundraising events, like Elf Day on Friday 4 December or any date that suits you. Sign up for a free fundraising pack at alzheimers.org.uk/ElfDay.
Alzheimer’s Society Head of Region for Yorkshire and Lincolnshire

- A new report by thortful.com reveals scariest horror films
- Alien ranked the scariest movie with the Shining coming in second place
- Prom Night ranked least scariest film
With the spookiest day of the year nearly upon us, a new report by thortful.com uncovers the top 10 scariest (and least scariest, if you’re a bit of a wimp, easily scared), films of all time…
After crunching the data on IMDB, thortful can reveal the scariest film is… Alien! Surprising, huh? The 1979 sci-fi flick directed by Ridley Scott, is set in outer space, and follows a crew who are terrorised by a deadly and aggressive alien.
This is followed closely by classic horror film The Shining, featuring Jack Nicholson. Other cult classic horror films that have made the top 10 are The Exorcist, and Halloween, the franchise that features iconic serial killer, Michael Myers.
The top ten scariest movies are:
|Rank (scariest)||Sub genre||Movie Title|
|3||Comedy horror||Get Out|
|5||Science-fiction||A Quiet Place|
|7||Slasher||Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street|
|8||Post-apocalyptic||28 Days Later…|
|9||Post-apocalyptic||World War Z|
According to the research, the least scariest film is Prom Night. Starring Brittany Snow, the film shows an obsessed teacher released from jail, who kills Snow’s friends on (you guessed it!), her Prom night. Several supernatural films feature in the bottom 10, including The Devil Inside, Annabelle Comes Home, Boogeyman, The Unborn, and Ouijia.
Classic thriller film Jaws has been voted as the third least scariest horror film of all times, with the killer shark clearly not as scary as it was back in the ‘70s and ‘80s!
The top ten least scariest movies are:
|Rank (least scariest)||Sub genre||Movie Title|
|2||Supernatural||The Devil Inside|
|4||Supernatural||The Doll Comes Home|
|5||Slasher||I Still Know What You Did Last Summer|
|9||Thriller||When a Stranger Calls|

For most young people October 31 is synonymous with Halloween and going ‘trick or treating’. But for parents with children who are due to move up to secondary school next September, the end of October is the cut-off date to apply for secondary school places.
“This is a really important time for families, and they need to take time to make the right decision for their child,” said Ruth Sparkes, MD at schools marketing firm, EMPRA.
Ruth added; “In normal times, before deciding which schools to apply for, parents would visit the schools that they are interested in, but we’re not in normal times and the annual open events and tours that schools would normally run are close to impossible this year.”
Although most children are given a place at their parents’ first choice school, this is not always possible if there are more applications for a school than there are places available.
Most councils have an over subscription criterion, and strongly advise families to provide preferences for three different secondary schools, they say this provides families with the best chance of getting their child into a school of their choice.
It is really important that parents apply by the deadline of 31 October 2020. Applying after this deadline may significantly affect what’s offered.
Top tips for choosing a school for your child in 2020
• 1. Visit the schools’ websites that you’re interested in, and make sure you take a good look around it and start making notes, list any questions you may have – looking at the website – what does the school ‘feel’ like?
• 2. Think about your child, how they learn, where they excel and what they want. And of course make sure to discuss the choices with them.
• 3. When you’ve made a shortlist, visit the school website again, there may be a ‘virtual’ event or an online Q & A session that you can get involved with.
• 4. Organise to speak with the headteacher or head of year 7 (this might be via video or telephone) – ask as many questions as you need to, it’s a big decision and you need to make sure that you are well informed. Many schools have the email addresses of senior staff on their websites, they will be happy to help.
• 5. See if you can speak to students at the school – there may be an online video session that includes the head boy and head girl. Remember that every child is different so it’s important to choose the right school for your child.
• 6. Have a look at the school’s prospectus to check that your views on education match the school’s ethos.
• 7. Read the school’s most recent Ofsted report, not just the headline grades – what’s the pastoral care like? What do the students think? What’s behaviour like?
• 8. Have a look at the school’s social media presence – does it have a Facebook page or Twitter account. How is it engaging with parents?
• 9. Lastly, check the Department for Education’s Parent View site – this gives a snapshot of what parents think about their child’s school.
Remember, you need get your application in, either online or in paper form, by October 31.
