Generations Review welcomes new editor Charles Musselwhite who has introduced a new look newsletter with lots of great articles, including:

  • Ben Spencer and Tim Jones look at active ageing and the potential cycling has as a mode of transport and fitness in later life
  • Matt Roberts introduces a project at Swansea University looking at how we might measure positive aspects of the environment in rural areas
  • Paul Willis talks about the provision of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender specific care homes
  • Timothy Mason and Gordon Slack discuss issues surrounding a community support programme for those with symptoms of dementia
  • Our International perspective comes from Sue Carnes Chichlowska and her experiences observing ageing in Malawi, Central Africa. 
  • There are two articles that examine shopping in later life, the first from Elizabeth A Evans. The second article from Mark Allen, Sarah Hillcoat-Nallétemby and Judith Phillips is the first of three looking at the interface between business and ageing and focuses on older people as consumers.
