“News in Brief” PLANTS TALKING?


In news to gladden the heart of Prince Charles, who was once much mocked for having conversations with cabbages and the like, it appears science has caught up with what many gardeners have long held true – plants can communicate. One cabbage plant had a leaf cut off with scissors and started emitting a gas – methyl jasmonate – thereby ‘telling’ its neighbours there may be trouble ahead. Mail

Call 01202 841000

In June 2011 Gail Miller Prior of Corfe Mullen lost her 22 month old son, Max, to a very rare condition called Sudden Unexplained Death in Epilepsy (SUDEP). Max was a happy little boy who enjoyed life literally to the 'MAX'. To commemorate Max's life, a group of family and friends have come together as TeamMAX. It is a tragedy that his life was cut short by such a rare occurrence. The goal of TeamMAX is to be able to fund a research grant via Epilepsy Action into the causes and cures for all children and adults living with Epilepsy.

Photography – texture One of the many creative tools a photographer has, to help create interesting and varied images, is Texture. Light Essential to showing texture in a subject is light direction. If the light is coming from the side of the subject every raised part of the subject casts a shadow in every depression. The greater the number of peaks and hollows, the greater the number of small shadows and therefore the more the texture. Even in overcast conditions or shadow there is always a light direction, usually from the lighter sky so thinking about your position relative to the light source and direction will enable you to show texture in a subject. The best examples here of overcast conditions are the detail in the church stonework and the texture in the Antarctic iceberg. Subject It is very difficult to find a subject that does not have texture. Even a smooth painted wall will show texture when lit from the side. In practice then, all subjects have texture. Strong light direction e.g. bright sunny days are the easiest conditions to enhance surface texture of your chosen subject. The examples included here show a variety of subject options. There are many more. Overview To emphasize the texture in a subject identify light direction and position your camera to achieve side lighting on the subject surface.

Sho r t s t o r y w inner

Christmas Is Special by Jack Loveland They glanced briefly at things that they could not afford, the shop at Clock Corner was so attractive that it would not let them past.A dazzling doorway, windmills on sticks, wooden hoops for the girls. With Iron hoops for the boys It was a grotto of delight for all. There was nothing eatable, but the two lady owners seem to stock every other thing that a family might want, that is if you could get through the double doors for they were draped with every small item that a home could use. .Yes it was a toy shop, stationers, and haberdashers the lady owners seemed to know just where every thing was. Every customer was addressed by their name, they deserved to have a thriving business. Naturally at Christmas they too had all the necessary baubles, but ‘Shepherds’ in The Square was the star attraction. The Square would come later. Jack, now waving his windmill on a stick had less room in his pushchair, for a couple of gifts for relatives had been bought beneath The Clock. Wending their way down past Tilley’s Photographic Studio, they were soon nearing Eastbrook Bridge. Cars were few and far between but Jack was delighted to see one being filled with petrol as it stood on the turntable.The turntable was a clever device. A car would turn off the road on to it and was soon refuelled .The garage hand, manually swung the turntable around so that the car once again faced the road and off the driver would go. Both parents were country born. They were always drawn into Wally Langer’s shop before entering the International Stores for their weekly grocery shopping.’ Langers’ sold saddles, harness straps and leather goods of all kinds. Somehow they were always enticed in to buy some small thing, shoe laces or a jar of bee’s wax for the few bits of furniture they were able to afford.The smell of the leather could not be resisted by Tony and Angela who had those country roots. With less money in the purse they finally turned for home. Lighted windows gave an enchantment to the shop displays as they made their way home. Jack had

continued from last month.... fallen asleep in his pushchair as the Quarter Jack on the ancient Minster heralded seven o’clock. Soon they hoped to have electricity to light their home but now it was necessary to light the fragile gas mantle. However it soon cast a warm glow around the room. The house was always quite warm as the fire required little effort spring to life. It was around the fire that Tony would enjoy reading a newspaper whilst Angela busied herself with patching, sewing or knitting.With Henry Hall and his orchestra entertaining them on the wireless set they were very content. Christmas was all that they could wish for. Soon the decorations were replaced in the loft, they were now imprisoned in a biscuit tin obtained from the manager of the International Stores. Standing on the ladder Tony tossed down three brown paper wrapped packets. He felt it was time to carry on clearing some of the remaining odds and ends once owned by ‘Granny Smith’. Later, as they sat beside a roaring log fire, he passed one of the packets to his wife. “Have a look. Might be some letters or ‘photos’ that ‘Granny’ tucked away!” A package fell open, it was stuffed with white five pound notes they floated to the floor. When, after months they were not claimed, it really was a Happy New Year!.

I was informed recently that Bovington Equestrian Centre has definitely had strangles confirmed in their yard. This is highly contagious, for those of you who have never come across this terrible disease caused by a bacteria streptococcusequi the main signs are high temperature and nasal discharge that looks like pus. The horse may be dull and off food and often develops swellings around the top of the neck and under the jaw. You must isolate the horse and call the vet immediately. Infection is often introduced by a new horse coming into your yard so please be very careful at the moment about moving your horse to a new yard or handling other people’s horses – let’s stop this before it spreads further.

A new website funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, provides invaluable information for visitors and lets them find out how they can become more involved in the museum, whether by volunteering, joining the Friends or making a donation. It promotes us on Twitter, Facebook and our very first Blog! A regularly changing feature will be the ‘Object of the Month’, in the ‘About Us’ section. Each month there will be a short article on an artefact from the museum’s collections, which reflect the story of East Dorset. We begin with a piece on the Roman water pump, one of only two known to survive in Britain today. The museum celebrates its 50th birthday on the 31 July this year. Hilda Coles founded a museum here, with Wimborne Historical Society in 1962. On a Tuesday in July the public were treated to displays of archaeology, unsold shop stock from a stationer’s, a penny-farthing bicycle previously owned by Lord Wimborne and agricultural tools. To help mark this occasion and Queen Elizabeth’s Diamond Jubilee, the museum will reopen with two new exhibitions on the 2 April, ‘Let’s Celebrate’ and ’60 Years of Fashion’.

Ask t h e proper ty exper t


I want to build an extension to the rear of my house. Do I need planning permission? New rules were introduced in 2008 which often allow home owners to extend without the need for planning permission (permitted development). The rules can be a little complex, so I recommend you contact the Local Authority or view the planning portal website, but in general the following applies. You may extend up to a depth of 3 metres for a 2-storey extension to the rear as long as: • No more than half the original garden is built on. • The eaves and ridge are no higher than, and the pitch of the roof matches, the original house. • The extension is more than 2m from the side boundaries and more than 7m from the rear boundary. • Materials match the existing house. Obtaining planning permission need not be too much hassle, and rather than designing an extension to avoid planning, I recommend you take the advice of a property professional and design the extension to best suit your needs; If it needs planning permission, then your adviser can deal with it. Other things to check are whether your home’s permitted development rights have been withdrawn, whether the Party Wall Act applies, where the drains are, and obtaining building regulations approval.
