DIY Ideas Winter Mould & Mildew Inside Your home: How to Keep Air and Surfaces Healthier -  It’s starting to get cold and when it does we tend to close windows, draw curtains and blinds to keep warmth in and bring still damp clothes in off the line as the sun slips towards the horizon to ‘air’ them overnight inside before putting them in closets and drawers. We put down the draught stops, check seals on windows and slide a thicker mat over those bathroom drains that seem to filter a draught into the home.

Although some of this can be alleviated by a dehumidifier, or using an upright airer in one room of the home where a window can be left open, a few other measures can be taken to reduce condensation within the home and the conditions that promote mould and mildew with a few easy steps and a bit of regular maintenance.

Artist of the Month: May 2018  WOKE – The Shibboleth Trilogy (Volume One) By John Ogden

Woke is the fictional account of one man's existential journey through an extraordinary time in history. Woke is John's debut novel.

After fleeing Australia to avoid the draft, Will Oakley somehow finds himself working as a photojournalist on Vietnam's battlefields, before being wounded and repatriated to America for treatment. He arrives in San Francisco during the Summer of Love, and soon begins work on a music magazine, during a seminal period in popular music. Abandoning America as dark forces converge, he begins an incredible journey back to his homeland and redemption.
