Did you know that ripe #BritishTomatoes have a considerably higher amount of antioxidant, lycopene, when compare to their imported, long-life counterpart? The benefits of delicious British tomatoes don't stop there, as processed tomatoes may contain high levels of additives such as salt (up to 100x more than fresh British tomatoes!) and sugar.

Continuing our look at some of the Highland Archive Service staff working from home, this week takes us to Wick and Ann!
"Hi folks, my name is Ann, I’ve worked as an Archive Assistant in Nucleus: The Nuclear and Caithness Archive for just over a year, and as you can see I sometimes like to dress the part! These past few weeks my colleagues and I have been taking you on a journey through time as we look at some of the documents in our collections including the 1859 War of the Orange (which currently appears on our web page), the 1960s daily diaries of Hugh Lyall, crofter, and many other amazing excerpts from the Archives. I am currently writing a piece on the biodiversity of St John's Pool Bird Reserve to showcase some of our more recent history."
