FROM planning the perfect cheeseboard to avoiding vehicle crime, from taking care of your back to tips on house hunting, our new Ultimate Guides have it all.

Jointly published by The Evening Star and our sister paper the East Anglian Daily Times, the Ultimate Guides are a brilliant way of providing all the information you need to help you run your life smoothly.

The Star's commercial editor Jayne Lindill said: “These guides are an excellent way of accessing information at your fingertips. Each has a target readership - those moving house, drivers, horse lovers, those who want to take care of their looks and health and those who enjoy easting out.

“They are compact and stuffed with tips and data so the Ultimate Guides are indispensable for busy people on the go. I am delighted we are able to offer these guides to our readers completely free of charge.”
