    There are plenty of reasons to dislike January (tight waistbands, scary bank statements and a sudden absence of free-fl owing Prosecco and pastry-based foodstu s, to name a few), but, cheesy as it sounds, the new year is also a brilliant time to really think about what we can do better in our lives. Thats why weve put together a special feature this month on making a positive change in 2016, starting on page 92. From adult learning courses (on topics ranging from the delightfully esoteric to the immensely practical) to some of the many volunteering opportunities to be had around Cambridge, theres a myriad of ways to better yourself or get involved with your community. Take a look at our guide and see what tickles your fancy.

    Also in this issue, weve got a guest recipe writer in the form of Michelle Alston, author of The Last Food Blog, whos showing you how to create some super easy, healthy and delicious recipes which are ideal for families on page 46. Elsewhere in our food section theres a round-up of Burns Night feasting ideas, our fi rst nuggets of news on the 2016 edition of Eat Cambridge, and the chance to win a pair of tickets to one of Cambridge Cookery Schools hugely popular bread making courses. Happy new year and enjoy the issue, all!

    REBECCA FERGUSON You might remember Rebecca Ferguson as the softly spoken Liverpudlian mum who appeared on The X Factor back in 2010. Guest judge Nicole Scherzinger was a fan from the o , declaring her to be our generations songbird after an early audition, whilst Dannii and Cheryl gave her a standing ovation after her heartfelt rendition of Candle in the Wind. She eventually lost out to Matt Cardle for the crown, but soon signed to Simon Cowells label Syco.

    Unlike many hopefuls from the show, shes shrugged o the reality TV label and become an artist in her own right. Her fi rst album, Heaven, drew comparisons to soul greats including Aretha Franklin, hitting number three in the charts, whilst her follow-up, Freedom, explored a more R & B, dance-orientated musical direction.
