Lindsay-Kay Leaver, 30, is a Cardiac Adolescent and Transition Clinical Nurse Specialist at Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) in London. She supports thousands of teenagers with heart conditions as they move from the very supportive environment of paediatric care into adult services where they need to take more responsibility for their own heart health and medical appointments.

Learning to run was a frustrating process (I started off not being able to run for more than 30 seconds...) but immensely satisfying (that runner’s ‘high’ is, in my eyes, unbeatable!) Soon enough I was running three times a week and ready to take on a charity run.

If this months’ iconic London Marathon has inspired you to take up running but you don’t fancy starting with a 26 mile challenge, then why not run or jog up to 10k around some of London’s iconic landmarks and green spaces and help the fight heart disease at the same time.

This is a disgrace! The council are saying our car parks are on average a 50% empty! No wonder over 60 shops have shut locally in the last year. The council needs to cut the cost of parking & introduce free parking to encourage shoppers. This council is anti business! − fight ratesCity car parks with spare capacity 'good news'
It is strange that a company would invest in what looks to me like an expensive shop refit & then close within a few months. Especially as they are expanding the company & opening new stores nationally. It must be that the landlord is asking too much rent, together with the highest business rates in the world that have gone up for the last 22 years in a row. Landlords, the Government & the council have to reduce rent, rates & parking charges or shops will leave this city. − fight ratesBargain store closes down
