Sixtyplusurfers has teamed with Esdevium Games to offer three lucky readers the chance to win Rory's Story Cubes.

Rory’s Story Cubes are a fantastic, fun way to inspire creative thinking, encourage social confidence, develop language, improve your vocabulary and promote storytelling skills for children. They are also a great game for those with memory and word recognition issues.

The game is a pocket sized story generator and is easy to play for all the family. Simply roll the 9 dice and then begin your story, ‘Once upon a time….’ and use the embossed images to spark your imagination. With just four lines of instructions, no time or story length limits and no right or wrong answers, anyone can become a great storyteller.

Presented in a little magnetic box, Rory’s Story Cubes are perfect for travel, waiting in a restaurant, playing in the classroom, as a party icebreaker, for idea generation, or to make learning a new language more fun – the uses are endless.

Win Rory's Story Cubes from Esdevium Games

The nine dice, each with a unique image on all sides, hold a total of 54 images. This means that with every roll, there are over a million combinations to use for storytelling inspiration.

Rory’s Story Cubes Originals are award winning and have received Dr. Toy's ‘10 Best Games’ Award, the ‘Major Fun Award’ and ‘People’s Choice Award’ amongst others.

Rory's Story Cubes are priced at £9.99, and are recommended for ages 6 and over.

Treat Fungal Nail Infections with Abicin Resin

Abicin Resin Lacquer

Have you had a good look at your toenails recently? It’s not a very glamorous subject, but you may have noticed a bit of discolouring of the nails or that they have become cloudy. As we get older, we also become more susceptible to nail problems. Other health conditions can also give rise to changes in the nail appearance.
New Abicin lacquer is a natural based product which utilises the antifungal properties of Norwegian Spruce Resin. It has been developed by Finnish Scientists who recognised the traditional use of Spruce Resin in Finnish folk remedies. Having analysed the composition of the resin, they identified the reasons why it acts on both bacteria and fungi – including the ones responsible for nail infections.

These occur as a result of infection of the keratin layer under the nail by a fungus called a dermatophyte. These infections can be difficult to treat and may affect up to 10% of the population in the UK at any one time. Their incidence increases with age. If you are aged over 60, there is a one in five chance you will have a nail infection and if you have diabetes, this increases to a one in three chance. Half of those aged over 70 will have a nail infection.

For the first time, a naturally sourced antifungal lacquer has been shown to be effective in clearing fungal nail infections, cleanly and simply with a twice a week usage. Treat your toes to a naturally based remedy. Time to give Abicin a try before it needs tablets.

Improve Your Credit Score with the ClearScore Chatbot

ClearScore, the UK’s no. 1 credit checking service, is aiming to help millions of people improve their credit score with the launch of ‘Coaching’, an easy to use free of charge service. Coaching is the first chatbot-based programme in the world to help you improve your credit worthiness and ability to get the best financial deals available.
Depending on whether you have a thin credit file, have faced financial challenges in the past or just want to fine tune your finances, ClearScore will automatically recommend the right Coaching programme for you – accessible through the free ClearScore account.

ClearScore  is a service which allows consumers to access their credit report and scores for free as often as they need or want.

Three reasons to check your Credit Score:

1. If you’ve ever been rejected for credit, checking your report can help you find out why.

2. Put yourself in the best position to get lower interest rates.

3. You can spot identity fraud quickly.

Checking your credit report will mean you’ll be able to see any new activity on your account – including any activity you may not recognise. So, in the unlikely event you’re a victim of identity fraud, you’ll be able to notice the signs quickly (and if you check your report regularly, you’ll be able to spot this even quicker).

The first sign of identity fraud is often when a hard credit search (aka credit check) is carried out on your account. If this isn’t done with your consent, it could mean someone is trying to take out credit (i.e. a credit card or loan) in your name.

Your credit report will list your history of hard and soft searches so you can easily keep an eye on the searches that might be fraudulent.

  Oeco Garden Offices

Oeco Garden Offices

Oeco have been supplying garden buildings for over a decade now, and one of their unique selling points is the price you see is the price you pay. This includes the cost of delivery & installation, which few other garden offices companies offer.

Oeco Garden Offices  are available in 10 styles: 5 classics & 5 contemporary. The contemporary styled garden offices have Anthracite trimmings along the rooflines and certain outer edges.

When Oeco first started installing and supplying in 2006, only a select range of structures was available including garden rooms, offices and lodges with an apex roof. Over the years they have expanded to Garden Pods, which start at a smaller size of 2.5m x 2.5m.

There is a large gap in the market for strong and heavy duty garden sheds. Recently Oeco have applied their expertise & knowledge to create a range of designed style garden sheds.

While these sheds aren’t in your typical price range for a garden shed, they most certainly aren’t going to blow over in a gust of wind or start to rot after a few years.

Tell us why you would like to win the Kobold VC100 Handheld Vacuum Cleaner in the 'Vorwerk Handheld Vacuum Cleaner' Group on the Sixtyplusurfers Chat & Socialise page and you could win this fabulous prize.

Sixtyplusurfers has teamed up with home appliance manufacturer, Vorwerk, to offer one lucky reader the chance to win a Kobold VC100 Handheld Vacuum Cleaner.

he VC100 Handheld Vacuum Cleaner

The Kobold VC100 Handheld Vacuum Cleaner can be used to clean your computer keyboard

Slim, sleek and elegant, the German-engineered VC100 and its accompanying charging station delivers a powerful performance, making vacuum cleaning quick and easy.

Whether you’ve left crumbs on the coffee table or your car needs a clean, the VC100 is your helping hand!

The vacuum cleaner is perfect for cleaning all those hard-to-reach places. It’s ideal for cleaning the stairs and can even be used to clean your cutlery drawer.

The VC100 has two variable suction levels, meaning it can easily adapt to clean a variety of surfaces from your computer keyboard through to dried-in mud in a car.

All you have to do it press the green button to select the suction level you need and the vacuum cleaner will effortlessly get rid of any dust and dirt.

Light and easy to use

The Kobold VC100 Handheld Vacuum Cleaner is light enough to be used by children

The VC100 is extremely light, weighing only 650g, which is the rough equivalent of two cans of Coke. Therefore it’s much easier and quicker to use than a dust pan and brush!

There’s no need to rush around when cleaning with the handheld vacuum cleaner either. The VC100 can operate in suction level two mode for up to 13 minutes and the LED light display will let you know how much battery life is left in the machine.

What’s more is that the light design of the VC100 also makes it suitable for children, so the grandchildren could even have a go at helping to clean up!

How to Enter the Competition!

Win a Kobold VC100 Handheld Vacuum Cleaner from Vorwerk

This competition is to help you keep your home clean and tidy with the minimum of fuss. So we want you to tell us why you would like to win the prize and how it would help you at home.

Then all you have to do is post your entry in the special
'Vorwerk Handheld Vacuum Cleaner' Group on the Sixtyplusurfers Chat & Socialise page.

For example you might like to win the Vorwerk Handheld Vacuum Cleaner'  because you
find cleaning your house hard work and getting out a large vacuum cleaner to clean every little crumb is not convenient.

Perhaps you have guests staying or young children who create a lot of mess that needs constant tidying up.

Maybe you have pets and this would help with cat litter spills, mud brought in by the dog, leaves and soil that they bring in the house after a walk.

It could be that you have a bad back, or aches and pains and using a light handheld cleaner would help make cleaning easier for you.

Are you are carer, looking after an elderly parent or relative and always on your feet? Tell us how this handy vacuum cleaner would help you out?

Perhaps you work from home and your desk and laptop area get messy with biscuit and sandwich crumbs and this would keep you tidy and more efficient.

Maybe you are currently cleaning inefficiently with a broom, dustpan and brush and your house always looks untidy.

You might be finding cleaning and housework overwhelming and this would take away the stress from your life.

Whatever your reasons we'd love to hear from you and why you would like to win the prize.

Just tell us why would like to win the Kobold VC100 Handheld Vacuum Cleaner in the
'Vorwerk Handheld Vacuum Cleaner' Group which can be found in the 'Groups' section on the Chat & Socialise page to be in with a chance of winning the prize.
