Golf tuition breaks for armchair golfers
While Britain is a nation of golf lovers, new research suggests that the clubs of many are gathering dust in cupboards as opposed to being taken out on to the fairway.

According to a new study by LV=, although one in five households has at least one set of golf clubs, 50 per cent of these have not been played with in the past six months.

Research by the company also shows that more than £10.4 billion worth of tennis, squash and badminton racquets and bicycles are also lying dormant in Britain's households.

'Spread clothes about' on flights to Spain
Following the recent troubles at Heathrow Airport's Terminal 5, one innovative tip has been offered to Brits packing their bags ahead of taking flights to Spain in the coming weeks.

According to the Association of Independent Tour Operators (Aito) a good way to avoid arriving at your Spanish villa with a pool without your swimming costume or bikini is by spreading your clothes out between the cases of fellow travellers.

Spokesperson for Aito Ian Bradley added that most trouble with baggage comes from bags failing to reach their intended destination, rather than being lost "forever".

"I believe the number of bags being lost is actually very low, it's just a case of them being mishandled more than anything else, so you will probably be reunited with your bag at some point but it might take a while," he noted.

UK holidaymakers should make more of an effort to get out and about and involve themselves in local culture when on holiday in Spain, it has been suggested.

According to Halifax, Brits spend less than seven hours in total on average away from their hotel when on holiday.

Research also showed that three quarters of Britons on package holidays in Spain and other countries fail to attempt to speak the local language.
