October / November 18 Issue 123 Clare Fowler Feature: Style Clare is a Bedford-based mum of two and part-time fashion blogger. In between working full time and doing the usual mum stuff, you can find Clare at www.fashionfemme.co.uk. Clare loves to source unusual fashion and homewares and intends to one day learn to teach yoga. Milky Features:  Music Matters Milky’s first records were Special Brew by Bad Manners and Kings of the Wild Frontier by Adam & the Ants. He still stands by them. With no musical talent his obsessions were gigs, the music press and records. He published the fanzine Skotch for Breakfast, started djing alongside touring bands and now promotes gigs in Bedford. If you hear EMF’s Unbelievable in a club, he’ll be the one decimating the dance floor. Rosemary Heatley Feature: Rosemary‘s Garden and Ex Libris Rosemary started her career in journalism, later becoming an English teacher at a college of further education and then a college manager. Now retired, she leads a busy life in the Ouse valley. Her loves are gardening, reading – she writes our book review under her maiden name, Roz Masters - and spending time with her family. 18 15 Celebrate Christmas with us Now taking bookings for the festive season Mon to Thu 5.30-11pm, Fri & Sat 5.30-11.30pm, Sun 12-10.45pm Banquet Night Wednesdays 54 High Street, Harrold, Beds MK43 7DA Tel 01234 721779 www.spicesofparadise.co.uk SPICES OF PARADISE The Real Flavours of India
