Some Of This Month's Great Features & Competitions

A Message From The Editor, January 2019

Happy New Year and Welcome to the January 2019 issue of Sixtyplusurfers. 

This month’s issue is dedicated to the memory of my dear father, Murray Jacobs, who sadly passed away on 8th December 2018.

Murray was the inspirational founder and creator of the Sixtyplusurfers website, and our very first issue went live to our readers on January 1st in 2005.

Murray created Sixtyplusurfers because he wanted a website that the over 60s – and everybody of all ages, all walks of life, and from all over the world – could enjoy.

The idea was that Sixtyplusurfers would appeal to people ‘surfing the net’, and they could use it to find helpful information for their retirement, informative lifestyle articles, hobbies they might enjoy, ideas for days out, health advice, fashion & beauty stories, travel & holiday inspiration, book reviews, celebrity interviews .. and essentially plenty to read! 

As the website developed we included free-to-enter competitions with lots of lovely prizes. And to make the website more interactive, a Chat & Socialise section, Facebook and Twitter pages were also developed.

I am honoured to continue writing Sixtyplusurfers and carry on Murray’s legacy for you to enjoy!

And this month, in true Sixtyplusurfers tradition, we have 14 FREE TO ENTER Competitions, with fabulous prizes to win, so do take a good look around. And have a Happy New Year.

Best Wishes

Jenny Itzcovitz, Editor
