Alpha Plus Guardians

OX Magazine

Alpha Plus Guardians was set up 20 years ago at King’s School, Ely in Cambridgeshire to provide guardianship for international students who had come to the UK to study. Over the years, Alpha Plus Guardians has flourished and we now care for and support international students at independent boarding schools throughout the south of England.

We are always looking for special people who are interesting in acting as a host family and can provide a comfortable guest room for the twice termly long weekends when the schools close and they cannot fly home. Our host families come in all shapes and sizes from single mothers to young professionals and retired couples. The most important requirement is that our host families can offer a safe and caring environment and show a genuine interest in contributing to the student’s experience of life in the UK.

The history and health benefits of Coffee

From lattes and cappuccinos to macchiatos and frappuccinos. Cold brew, hot brew and dairy free options all to be tweaked with an ever-expanding list of syrups. What’s not to like? I suspect coffee is here to stay and I for one am extremely happy for it.

Since the 1980s we have seen the wellness and wellbeing movement gaining significant momentum across the globe. Today, many are mindful of this and tailor their lifestyle to accommodate its importance. It is, however, possible to toxify this movement.

For the best of British issue, I’m inspired this month by a specific element of the fabled British spirit: phlegm.

My vertical thought for this Best of British month is if there’s one thing our fine land is good at, it’s that we are quietly proud to lead the world in eccentrics.
