Jewellers, Silversmiths & Diamond Merchants

40 years in the jewellery trade

Celebrating

‘I enjoy the challenge of suiting each individual with that personal piece of Jewellery, and seeing the resulting pleasure!’

Antique Pearl & Diamond Brooch from our selection of fine Jewellery

My Story On leaving school he joined an Independent Family Jewellers in Bournemouth, where he began developing his customer-related skills, simultaneously commencing absorbing knowledge about Diamonds, precious stones and silverware. Later Mr Harkness moved to a Quality National Jewellers in London, taking more responsibility buying, selling and managing staff. At this time Mr Harkness formed many connections which are still invaluable. Neil then became Assistant Manager in R E Porter Jewellers, Bournemouth, and was responsible for buying Secondhand and Antique Silver and Jewellery. Mr Harkness was inspired by his Great-uncle – the late Mr R E Porter, who founded Porters, and Portique (formerly of Bournemouth). In 1997 Neil bought Portique, keeping it in the family as a Quality Independent Jewellers.

“News in Brief� Football - How large is your Pitch? The largest football stadium in the world is the Rungrado May Day Stadium in Pyongyang, North Korea, with a seating capacity of 150,000. The English Premier League has nine stadiums with a capacity of 40,000 or more - the minimum capacity required for a stadium to host FIFA World Cup finals matches. Petrol - enough already! Recent petrol price rises at the pumps will wipe out any savings drivers could

have expected from warmer-weather motoring. Already at record levels, fuel prices have risen further, with petrol rises at an average of 138.50p a litre and diesel at 145.45p.

Hea lth & B e a u t y How to Avoid Exercise Boredom It is easy to become bored with even the best of workouts but there are simple ways to vary your exercise routine to keep it fresh and engaging. Be a kid again: All too often, exercise feels like work instead of play. To relieve boredom, think back to some specific form of physical activity that you loved as a child - such as use a hula hoop, play badminton, Ping-Pong or other games. They use different muscles and burn calories at varying rates, but all are worthwhile forms of exercise. Double-dip: It can be fun to listen to your favourite music while you work out—and studies have shown that this does curb boredom and increase energy levels during a repetitive task, such as exercise. Aim to improve your body and your mind at the same time by double-dipping, such as learn a foreign language or “read” a book by listening to tapes or CDs while walking or

pedalling on a stationary bike. Go dancing: It doesn’t matter whether you do ballroom dancing or some other form of partner dancing. You will burn about 200 to 325 calories per hour (estimates vary depending on body weight and the type of dancing) and improve your cardiovascular health. When learning new dance steps, you’ll also get a mental workout. In fact, reliable studies have shown that cognitively demanding forms of activity, including ballroom dancing, are associated with lower rates of Alzheimer’s disease. Join a Club: Whether it’s walking, hiking or bicycling, exercising with others can help keep you motivated and socially active.

Stephen Cheese: www.garden-scape.co.uk When I first noticed it I thought it was honesty seedlings and felt smug, but as soon as the Freephone: second pair of leaves appeared I realised my mistake. (One year I carefully tended rosebay willowherb seedlings thinking they were penstemen!) My main job at the moment is tearing out ivy, it’s funny how the most successful plants in a garden are never the ones you want. I began by believing it was rather pleasant ground cover, dark green and shiny with a bit of variegation, but this year realised that the snowdrops were all but buried

Freephone: and the ivy had encroached into the more formal parts of the garden (and, to my shame, under the fence and into my neighbour’s immaculate garden). At least I didn’t plant the ivy, but I have a fair number of thugs which I put in myself, there’s a very fine line between ground cover plant and pest. I’ve got a lovely dark Ajuga reptans which I’m always ripping out but carefully leaving some, also Lysimachia ‘Firecracker’, a beautiful leaf colour and easy to pull up but I wouldn’t be without it. Those two are easy to remove, but I wish I’d never planted Veronica peduncularis, Galium odoratum, Arisarum proboscideum, etc. etc…..! Barbara Gooch

You r g ar d en TOP GARDENING TIP FOR APRIL Grow Weed-less

Don’t make the mistake of waiting until the weeds are established before taking action. If that’s your strategy then you’re bound to spend wasted hours of pulling and hoeing in a vain attempt to catch up with overgrown weeds. Know the enemy! Being able to identify your weeds from the moment they germinate will enable you to eliminate them when they are young and easier to control. At that time a light cultivation of the soil’s crust is sufficient to kill most sprouting weeds. Other weed control techniques include using organic mulches, limiting or eliminating tilling, never allowing bare soil to be exposed, and my favourite; using a living mulch of cultivated crops to deprive weeds of the favourable conditions that they need to germinate and grow.

Top Food Tips

– Eat More

It’s time for a new slim-down approach Eat more to weigh less. The right foods help you lose weight by increasing your calorie burn and reducing cravings. An apple a day can keep weight gain at bay. Research has shown that people who ate an apple before a pasta meal ate fewer calories overall than those who had a different snack. Plus, the antioxidants in apples may help prevent metabolic syndrome, a condition marked by excess fat. Apples are the ideal on-the-go low-calorie snack. For a pie like treat, chop up a medium apple and sprinkle with 1/2 tsp allspice and 1/2 tsp cinnamon. Pop in the microwave for 1 1/2 minutes.

Photography – SPRING FLOWERS With spring comes a mass of wonderful flowers. Close detail A compact digital camera is an ideal tool for capturing the beauty and colour. All cameras have an option for getting in close (macro setting), usually depicted by a flower symbol. This allows very close focusing so small details can be photographed. Be aware of movement - A potential problem is camera shake which increases with close focusing. Use of a support will make all the difference, either a tripod or a convenient steady prop on which the camera can rest. Windy days are also a problem as plants are rarely still and will record with movement blur. Lighting Soft overcast light is best. Forget bright sunny days, they are bad news because light subjects will be recorded pure white showing no detail, also shadows can be very dark. Faced with bright ‘contrasty’ light, a companion can be useful to stand so that a shadow is cast over the subject. This will achieve soft light. The ideal conditions are bright slightly cloudy days with little or no wind. This can often be achieved either early and/or late in the day. Viewpoint As can be seen from these illustrations, some subjects suit photography from above while others are best captured from their low level. Some cameras have a swiveling display screen and save having to kneel or lie on the ground to get to the same level as the subject. Sometimes a companion can be used to cast a shadow on the background instead of the subject. Background If it is far away, it will be blurred which is ideal as long as there are no distracting ‘blobs’. A messy background will ruin the picture. The pair of photos of the iris show how changing viewpoint can alter the background. A dark background enhances colours. Overall use a variety of techniques to achieve an interesting selection of images.

1

Where to go? Pick a campsite where there is room for your children to roam safely and that allows you to relax. If it’s your first time with the kids, pick a campsite you are already familiar with. Its usually best to avoid sites that are too close to rivers, roads or cliff top views!

Expectations: Remember children will probably find the most exciting part to be the novelty of sleeping in a tent, cooking outside and exploring. This works in your favour, take a break, as you won’t have to plan a days activities to keep them entertained as you might do at home.

2

3

Timing: Arrive early so you have time to set up. One job you don’t want is to pitch in the dark with the kids! The first hour at a campsite is the one you need to be extra cautious. While you are pitching the tent, your children will want to wander off and explore before you’ve got your bearings. The answer: give them simple jobs, to help you set everything up, then you can explore together.

Where to pitch: Firstly - the toilet block distance, judge it so you won’t be woken up in the night by others, but are close enough to use it yourselves. Secondly - try to pitch in a memorable spot or with a marker, to help your kids find your tent. For example a metal pole with a flag or a distinctive tree or hedge. ...keep an eye out next month for more tips!

Wimborne BID 6 months on… Over 50 people from Making it Happen 38 of Wimborne’s leading businesses attended a meeting last Thursday to hear a review of six months of activities from the Wimborne Business Improvement District (BID). The BID was already working well alongside existing organisations and had achieved significant steps towards it main goals of improving the business environment and standing of the town. The Board of directors, elected directly from the businesses community were lobbying hard about major issues, affecting the town, such as town parking and Canford Bottom roundabout. The BID had also supported the Chamber of Trade & Commerce by significantly contributing to the Christmas lights and money was being spent to market and promote the town. Chris Slocock, Chairman of Wimborne BID says “the last six months have been about laying foundations and working with other town organisations. All the Directors are giving their time voluntarily. In January we welcomed our part-time Operations Manager who can now plough on with achieving our shared vision. We know some people in the town are critical of the BID but it is early stages and it has hardly been a normal trading period for most businesses with the roadworks and Square enhancements”. The meeting gave opportunities for the businesses to put forward questions and ideas for the future, including events and better ways of working together. BID Directors underlined the need for

In o u r comm u ni ty individual businesses to get involved in developing ideas and in working groups, and participating in events. Signage, which is one of the key projects going forward, attracted a large group of interested people, highlighting the importance of this issue. Working with Dorset County Council, East Dorset District Council, Wimborne Town Council and the Chamber of Trade & Commerce, the BID will endeavour to reach a proposal by the summer, which will then be put to the businesses for consultation.

For more information please contact Liz Guilmant-Cush, Operations Manager Wimborne BID 07980 166855 enquiries@wimborneminster.net

Making it Happen

About the BID Wimborne BID, a non-profit company, came into existence in August 2011, following a successful ballot of over 300 Wimborne businesses, and gathers funds from these businesses to help improve and promote the area to visitors and other businesses. It works in partnership with East Dorset District Council and runs under strict government legislation. It has a board of 9 voluntary Directors from local businesses. It has a set term of 5 years before returning to a ballot.

We’re celebrating an amazing one million trees planted in February We set ourselves an amazing challenge to kick start our year of tree planting for the Jubilee Woods project – to plant one million trees in February. And the great news is that we have achieved this in fantastic style with Dermot O’Leary planting a tree as a final celebration of this incredible feat. We are not taking all the glory though. Luckily we’ve had a few supporters to help us on the way. We were honoured to have Her Majesty The Queen and Her Royal Highness The Princess Royal planting a Jubilee tree at the Sandringham Estate, Dame Judi Dench, Blue Peter, Kate Humble, BBC Winterwatch, Clive Anderson, Sam and Eve Branson but most importantly, thousands of children and adults across the country. But our biggest support has been you. With your help and commitment we

have enabled communities, schools and thousands of children to plant a million trees across the UK. This is a great start to 2012 but one million trees is just the beginning. We aim to plant 6 million trees across the UK to celebrate Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth’s Diamond Jubilee, create hundreds of Jubilee Woods and 60 special Diamond Woods and we still need your support. You can plant a tree in your garden, attend a tree planting event near you, apply for a free tree pack, create a Jubilee Wood or simply make a donation. Whatever you do, you know you will be helping to create a lasting legacy for generations to enjoy.

We are all looking forward to the spring and the lighter evenings and being able to do a bit more with our horses after work, but if you are going to ride on the road don’t forget to wear lots of reflective clothing. Even though you think you can be seen drivers don’t always see a rider till it’s too late. You can get some really nice fluorescent clothing for both you and your horse - the Polite Range is great; they look like police tabards and really make drivers slow down. They do leg and hat bands, waterproof ¼ sheets, martingales, bridle bands etc, You can also get waterproof fluorescent jackets; so let’s be seen and safe all through the year.

W RI TER S C O R N E R Decision that Changed my Life by Janet Beard The Minster Press has just printed Janet’s story which has a spiritual theme. It tells of her struggles and spiritual experiences in her life - Not to say how she struggled but, hopefully to inspire others. “The old cliché that I’ve been there, and come out the other side, but with such impact, and as a result of spiritual experiences, I now truly feel belief and it is life changing. I also believe I can illustrate that church is not a boring place and it can grow, it’s a matter of passion on the part of the minister” “Some people say “ I lead a Christian life so why do I need to go to church?” and equally some people who do attend church regularly think that is all they need to do, but both are missing the point. It is spending time with the Lord and giving him praise. Like any relationship the more time you invest in it the more rewarding it becomes. In fact that applies to life generally” Janet’s honest and revealing story is available in paper back – please contact the Minster Press if you would like to purchase a copy – Tel 01202 882277 or email minsterpress@printsolutions.co.uk

Ask t h e prop er ty ex pe r t

Q A

I’m entering a lease on a commercial property. Is there anything I need to be aware of? The wrong covenant, or employing the wrong professional adviser, can cost a landlord or tenant many thousands of pounds in unexpected repair and decoration costs. When entering into a commercial lease, landlords and tenants need to pay close attention to the lease and what their obligations will be in relation to repairing and decorating the premises, throughout and at the end of the term. Getting the right advice and employing the right professionals may save you many thousands of pounds. The wording of the lease will have a major effect on the extent of repair work that the Tenant will be obliged to carry out. For example, if the repairing lease is simply to “repair”, then the Tenant will not usually be obliged to put the property into better condition than at the start of the lease, or to remedy a pre-existing defect. If, however, the wording of the lease is something like “amend and renew”, or “put and keep in repair”, then the liability may extend far beyond that anticipated by the Tenant. You need to speak to an experienced solicitor to advise on the wording of the lease, and also a Chartered Building Surveyor to advise on the existing condition of the building and your likely repairing obligations at the end of the lease. It could save you tens of thousands of pounds.
