1. Farmers, growers, processors and industry representatives are being asked for their views from 31 August for 10 weeks on the role of the Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board (AHDB).

    The AHDB is a UK statutory levy board, funded by farmers, growers and others in the supply chain. As we leave the EU, there is an opportunity to ensure that the sectors that the AHDB covers are as competitive as possible. This review will look at the AHDB’s purpose and priorities, its strengths and where improvements need to be made.

    This is a joint 10-week exercise covering England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. The request for views will close on 9 November.

    Plenty of fluids (non alcoholic) and sleep. Apparently Vick vapour rub on the bottom of your feet is good for a cough at night if you can stand the smell Hope you feel better soon

    There is no quick fix, but, seriously, best bet is rest and fluids. None of us normally take enough time off and then it takes us weeks to get over it. I had one of these cold/sore throat viruses and I'm still exhausted and coughing 7 weeks later and that is despite taking it easy for 2 weeks on light duties as I had my cataract done as well. And no it hasn't become bacterial. I had to see my rheumy on a routine appointment a full month after my virus started and in the letter to my GP she said 'this lady is clearly struggling with a virus and should try to take it easy for a fortnight.' Some chance in another 2 weeks off!!
