igh street banks are still pushing customers on to agents selling identity theft products when they call their bank to activate new credit cards. Customers who are expecting to speak to bank staff are then being persuaded to buy ID theft protection products, which they may not need, by third party agents. Earlier this year, CPP - one of the largest providers of card and identity theft protection products in the UK - announced it was being investigated by the Financial Services Authority for mis-

selling insurance policies. Despite the investigation, banks such as Santander have continued to pass customers on to CPP. Thousands of ID theft insurance policies have been sold by banks in the UK. But, in reality, if your identity is stolen you are entitled to claim losses back from your bank, providing you were not negligent. Barclays, the bank that has sold the most ID theft cover, suspended sales in March 2011, as did RBS. But Barclays says it isn’t contacting customers who may have been mis-sold the policies, some of whom have said agent sales tactics were ‘offensive’ and tantamount to ‘scaremongering’. Which? member Patricia Williams told us: ‘Protection should begin with stopping the hard sell, or scare tactics employed by the likes of CPP, with the blessing of the card provider who is responsible for the initial introduction.’ TAKE ACTION If you’ve been missold ID theft insurance, Which? can help you. See for advice on how to make a complaint to your provider and claim back your premium.

Patricia Williams did not appreciate CPP’s hard sell tactics.



laims management companies (CMCs) are creaming off billions of pounds by offering to help people make claims against banks for being mis-sold payment protection

insurance (PPI) - see p77. CMCs are taking, as standard, a 25% cut of any payout as their fee. This could amount to as much as £2bn of PPI redress going to claims management companies. But you don’t need a third party to help you claim - you can do it yourself. Which? has created an online tool to help you claim for free. All you have to do is select the company that sold you PPI, fill in your contact details and answer some simple questions. See

oreign bodies in cats and dogs can be the most rewarding or frustrating cases we see as vets. It never ceases to amaze me what we sometimes retrieve from our patients, ranging from stones, toys to kitchen knives ! The most common cases occur in puppies or young dogs. Being inquisitive in nature they like to chew and mouth objects which can be ingested and possibly become lodged in the gut. Common offenders are stones, bones, toys and items of clothing which can be embarrassing for the owner when you retrieve several pairs of pants from a stomach. Clinical signs can vary but often Charity Reg: No. 232237

involve vomiting which can be intermittent if the object is rattling around the stomach to an acutely ill dog if the object is stuck in the small intestine. Chop or chicken bones are particularly bad as they have sharp edges which can lodge and penetrate the gut resulting in a fatal infection. The best way to prevent intestinal foreign bodies in young dogs is to ensure that toys and clothing are not left lying on the floor and small bones are not given. Other common offenders are young cats which like to chew string or wool. Something as innocuous as string can be lethal as the gut tends to grip the thread, telescope itself along its length and can result in perforation with fatal consequences if left. Signs are often vomiting, lack of appetite and lethargy. The real challenging cases involve the ingestion, inhalation or penetration of plant material. Cats and dogs often chew grass which is covered in small barbs and this can get stuck behind the soft palate. This can result in a dramatic onset of gagging, retching, sneezing, and occasionally grass sticking out of the nostril. Other common cases involve dogs running onto thrown sticks which is an emergency, thorn injuries in pads and working dogs which inhale grass seeds. Grass seeds are notoriously problematic as they tend to migrate and result in infection in many areas of the body. These cases often present with vague signs such as a high temperatures, off food and maybe a mild cough. As plant material can’t be seen easily on x-ray it can be very difficult to locate the foreign body and may require CT or MRI scans to find the object which is expensive. On a final good note in most cases with foreign bodies once the culprit is found and removed the animal will often make a full recovery. • Pets, Farm and Equine • Caring and professional staff • FREE nurse consultation for all aspects of animal care • Superb facilities • Experienced Veterinary and Nursing Teams • Full range of medical and surgical facilities SKIPTON 73 Otley Road, Skipton BD23 1HJ Tel: (01756) 793224 SILSDEN 27a Skipton Road, Silsden BD20 9LB Tel: (01535) 657273 CROSS HILLS 1 Aire Street, Cross Hills BD20 7RT Tel: (01535) 635115 FARM PRACTICE Skipton Auction Mart, Gargrave Road, Skipton BD23 1UD Tel: (01756) 700940 24HR EMERGENCY SERVICE TELEPHONE: (01756) 793224

Your Home....... D

ecorating a childs room. When it comes to decorating a child’s room, your approach should be much different from decorating an adult bedroom. For kids, their bedroom is where they play games, read, listen to music, day-dream, or just go to be alone sometimes. So use these eight strategies to help create a space that will make you both happy: 1. Talk to your child. Find out what activities and fantasies he or she enjoys; what their favourite colour is; and what’s unique about their personality that a theme could be built around.

2. Allow your child to help. Let them have a say about colours, fabrics, and how they want to display their collectables. 3. Make the room multi-functional. Since children use their room for many activities besides sleeping, it should have several different zones, such as a play area, reading area, and entertainment area. 4. Make storage a priority. Try shelving, large decorative wicker baskets, plastic see-through containers, and cupboards that contain plenty of shelving and racks. 5. Keep window treatments simple. The fabric should be versatile, and patterns should be repeated in other items in the room, such as in pillows, quilts, lampshades, throws and valances etc. 6. Choose the right lighting. A child’s room should include both task lighting for homework and reading, and soothing light for quieter times. A nightlight is also important. 7. Use wallpaper or paint to add colour and texture.You can apply whimsical borders along the top edges of the walls, and clouds or stars on the ceiling. Kids love bright colours, but you should limit any strong colour to only one wall.

At surprisingly economical prices


8. Allow your child to select the design theme. Here are just a few: starry night, angels, rainbows, unicorns, football, a bedroom for a princess, underwater scenery, outer space, race cars, airplanes, trains, jungle motifs, wizards and dragons, and dinosaurs. Decorating with your child offers a great opportunity to display your playful side, while doing some memorable family bonding, so have fun with it!

Mar 21 - Apr 20

What’s playing in the back of your mind may be linked to a deeplyheld wish? It could be that this is now attainable - but only if you can really trust someone. At a different level entirely, you could decide that it’s time to update your image for the month of August. A joint financial arrangement may be in danger of de-railing. You might also be wondering exactly which wavelengths you share with someone who now seems to pay more attention to practicalities than to your feelings. An ultimatum may not have worked out as you’d hoped. You could fall head over heels in love by the middle of August. At a special event you could meet someone who might be considered the ‘mystery guest’. Even if this is very early gift-buying, maintaining a treasure store could matter. You might also behold a secret that’s not uncomfortable to hold - but valuable. Someone’s logic could escape you - and you might not know how you can work/play together in the future.This relationship might have reached impasse. Something you read could have extraordinary effect and prompt you to make contact with someone who’s spoken about as though they’re visionary during the final week of July.

Apr 21 - May 21

It’s possible too that you’ll enjoy a conversation with a relative who’s interested in all you’ve been doing and who might let you in on a longheld secret. You could experience a ‘self-confidence crisis’ moment prompted by awareness that you haven’t been efficient. The idea that you’ve let someone down or that others will be less-than-pleased could tip your delicately balanced-scales. You may need a good friend to help you view the situation from a different perspective before the month of July is out. You could find exactly the right items that would make a difference to your home environment at the beginning of August.

8• All about

Blend together until creamy serve and enjoy.


Powerful memories may be stirred - yet also be elusive this week.You may know that your emotional axis has been shaken but not know quite why. A déjà-vu experience is possible by the end of July. In short, this could be a month of mystery and unusual and unquantifiable experience that cause you to question the meaning of what is going on around you. Mental arithmetic could preoccupy you - as could contact with someone long-distance during the month of August. It might suit you to make a spread-sheet of options. The one person who could help might be something of a worrier though so you might prefer to keep thoughts to yourself.

May 22 - Jun 22

Partnerships affairs of all kinds hit the headlines. You could also seal a financial deal. Best of all may be conversations with those who are now impressed that your view of future events has become clear. They might now be interested to hear what you have to say about how matters could unfold before the end of July. It may be necessary to get more involved with a group. You might even decide to join a team or organisation. Diplomatic skills may well surface. You might also need to set aside time to study procedures and regulations - all in the hope that you can be ‘ahead of the game’ for August.


Jun 23 - Jul 22

In joining forces, you make it clear to others that you’ll stand by someone who has been toyed with like a puppet on a string for long enough. Contact with someone who is away from home studying is likely before the month of July has ended. This person too might need your friendship as they negotiate trying times. Within a group you could achieve professional status: you may have the answer to one of their problems.You might also decide that there are certain people you want to draw even closer - and equally a number of others who’re draining your life-blood. Now’s the time not to renew membership of a club for August.


Jul 23 - Aug 23

Someone very close may think they can’t cope. They might be leaning on you a little more than feels comfortable. Finances could be involved: it’s perhaps more likely that you have confidence and they are having doubts as to whether a recent move was the right one. Meanwhile, you may be giving more thought than usual about what to wear to an event before the end of July.Your career, hopes and aims are all high-lighted and you could discover just how far certain people are willing to go to help you.You might also discover a new determination within yourself. The written word seems to play an important part. Might you be drafting a contract planned for August?


Aug 24 - Sep 22

Things are looking positive for this month and an interesting knock-on effect is that you could do a partnership deal.Your romantic life might be enriched too: perhaps because you are so, so aware of someone’s talents. Taking time out to meditate maybe to be alone and listen to silence, could put you in touch with inner self. You could find the answer to a problem before the month of July is finished.You might also find language that enables you to get through to a person who’s been driving you crazy with questions - but is really just feeling insecure for August.


Sept 23 - Oct 23


Oct 24 - Nov 22


Nov 23 - Dec 21

Your nerves could be frayed and your nervous system in need of an over-haul. It may be that you’ve been carrying about feelings for a long time and need to talk these through. Identifying just who you can trust could be a priority before the end of the month of July. Someone wearing formal clothes and who doesn’t wear their heart on their sleeve could be just the person. A close friend or relative might think you ought to assess resources before the new month begins.You though may have reached a critical turning point. For your health, you might now need to change direction as August progresses. A close bond and long-term friendship could be tested.You could come together and display a united front - or you could pull against one another in the fiercest of tug of wars. A make or break situation could find you at your most creative though and able to guide someone who doesn’t yet know all the ropes. Factors quite beyond your control could disrupt your schedule. Though your focus is good - making this a good time to sit an exam, you might also be emotionally perturbed by the end of July. In this slightly unbalanced state you could fall out with someone who’s in fact having as much difficulty as you in coping with a situation during the first two weeks of August. Your thoughts may be stuck. You might even wish you could hibernate - but not alone. One person has your undivided attention. You might also need comfort food though: topping up a store-cupboard with goodies might seem extra important. You feel events may be quite out of your control before the month of July is out.You may need to trust a partner to do the right thing. Health matters could be more than usually important. At a different level you might just need some sun. Friends may be able to listen and offer words of advice.


Dec 22 - JAN 19

Possessiveness could be at work - as could envy and jealousy. In identifying a thing or person that has such effect on you, you gain understanding of why others are sometimes compelled to behave as they do. This could trigger arbitrating talents before the end of July. You might know exactly where you are with regard to a joint financial matter for the beginning of August. In a place probably steeped in history, you could gain insight into a problem and attract attention from someone who’d deeply spiritual and who understands where you’re coming from by the middle of August..

The experts share their gardening secrets with Hilary Bowman


ardening may not be your idea of fun – but you know what? After watching Channel 5’s new series Garden ER, you might just change your mind. The two presenters, David Domoney and Bonnie Davies, have personality in spades and as they unearth and transform a shed load of disasters and growing concerns, you can’t help being swept along by their enthusiasm, as well as being inspired and entertained at the same time. David explains: “The aim of the programme is to inspire people who do not normally garden to get out into their outdoor space and treat is as an extension of the home.” Best-known as resident gardener on GMTV, This Morning, Better Homes, House of Horrors, Plant Doctor, and the only dedicated garden designer on 60-Minute Makeover, David has also scooped 28 Royal Horticultural Society medals. For Garden ER his plan is to draw on the technology and know-how he utilises for his grand gardens to turn barren back yards into “gob-smacking” gardens. “We take a series of eight gardens in the West Midlands which are new houses, real life gardens, and we bring into them some of the tricks of the trade that I use when I’m designing gardens at Chelsea Flower Show, Hampton Court, Tatton and so on.”

Foscarini Twiggy, Marc Sadler

Starting with blank canvas holds no fears for David. “For most people, creating something exciting [from scratch] is an impossibility. We do – in one day – a complete transformation within a budget. The people on the show get the opportunity to choose an envelope. It could be 500 quid or £10,000 [the garden owners aren’t told the figure] and I have to build a garden within that budget. So people who watch the show can look at the end result and think ‘That’s what you can get for two grand, that’s what you can get for five grand, etc – I’ll have a bit of that!’ “That budget obviously doesn’t include labour because that would depend how long it takes and who you bring in but is just for the products to be purchased to create that sort of effect, which we think is great fun!”

David’s co-presenter, roving reporter Bonnie Davies, is a natural on camera but admits she never expected to find herself with a TV career… “Presenting? I didn’t even think about it! I’m normally just a garden designer. We have a family nursery, Davies Brothers, in Burnham, Bucks, so I’ve grown up knowing all about plants and really enjoying that. I love plants and when I left school I went to college to do a garden design course. But then from that I thought I want to get into the higher end so I did Hampton Court [show] last year and got a Silver Gilt and then from that I met this sculptor called Martin Cook and together we did a ‘Poets’ Garden’ for Chelsea and we got a Silver Gilt for that. From the interview that I did with a national newspaper, Kerry, the series producer for Garden ER, saw my picture in the paper and a short TV interview I did at Chelsea about young designers and called to ask if I wanted to do a screen test. I went for my screen test and didn’t really expect to get it as there quite a lot of people going for it and they said come back and do another one and I got in!” So what makes this show different to other gardening shows? Bonnie says, “It’s a lot faster, more fun and it’s aimed at a younger audience. It’s not getting hung up on all the technical stuff. A lot of it is in bite-sized chunks so the Garden Gaffs are about four minutes, the sheds section about four minutes, all those little strands put together. And it’s all about the Wow factor! “I’m doing the Garden Gaffs where someone has done something ridiculous and you’re going to go in and fix it – it’s all a bit of a comedy. It’s just taking the mick a little bit in a friendly way. I like the ones which are really original and you think Why would they think of doing that in the first place?” It also means plenty of hands-on effort to put things right! Bonnie laughs: “Yes, you have to get stuck in and still do the presenter side. I keep getting told off for wiping mud across my face!” Another strand on the show calls for David to “Pimp up your garden shed”! “We went up to a guy in Nottingham,” says David, “where his shed was transformed into a bar with all the lighting, everything like that, so it is fun, it’s energetic and you don’t have to be interested in gardening to love the show. That’s the key thing. It’s the ideal antidote to traditional gardening shows. It’s not a lecture – prune this, do this. It’s a blank canvas, in variety of things in a short period of time they are dramatically transformed. It’s fast-paced and energetic.”

So what’s the first step when creating a garden from scratch? “If you’re talking about £500 at the lower end, it’s all about getting maximum bang for your buck,” explains David. “First of all you have to interpret what you think the client wants. I just get a short meeting with them and a chance to look round their house and interpret in my mind what design I want to do for that home. They know nothing about it [the finished garden], it’s a typical makeover reveal. So with each show, I decide what I’m going to spend that money on that will make the most difference to the people. Sometimes, it’s harder doing the bigger budgets than the smaller budgets because in only a small space, how do you get seven and a half grand’s worth of material in a small estate garden in the West Midlands? That’s part of the passion of enjoying the show. “Likewise, how can you make something look good for 500 quid? Those are the challenges. It’s a little bit like watching Top Gear, you don’t have to be interested in

hanging baskets, window boxes or containers. It is all a good source of food and of course it’s recycling too.

cars to watch Top Gear. It’s an exciting, inspirational and captivating show and I think you’ll find a similar effect with us there.”

Dropping nails in that rust adds good iron into the soil. Beer is also very good. Dilute a bit for rubber plants, cheese plants; wipe the underside of the leaves and the top. It cleans and also adds a bit of food. You can get loads of stuff in coffee shops to take care of your plants for free. A disposable cup with beer or cat food in the flower bed will attract slugs and you can then dispose of them. Wooden stirring sticks can be used as plant labels.

What are the worst gardening crimes people commit? “We’ve seen a huge amount of different gaffs. As far as the show’s concerned, bright pink decking that has aged and is now turning mouldy green… But generally, planting trees like a Lebanese cedar or a monkey puzzle right bang in the front of a semidetached front garden… how big are they going to grow! Water features… you wouldn’t believe how many water features I’ve seen in the middle of a garden that are totally inappropriate, such as a sheet of stainless steel with water trickling down the front looking more like a gent’s urinal than a garden feature. Those type of things are classic. Sometimes people take an element they like from the big flower shows and put it into their own garden, which just doesn’t match. In a garden it’s about continuity. If you’re buying pots and containers for the patio you don’t buy a terracotta one, a Malaysian glazed one, a wooden one and so on. If it was your own home and it was plates on the dining table for a meal, all the plates would match. If you’re buying containers, if you do nothing more than have all your pots and containers matching to follow continuity, suddenly it ties in the garden.” “I think the key thing when designing is to start with a list of what you want to use it for. I start by talking to each of the people, trying to find out what they want to use it for. There’s no point in doing a Chelsea-style garden if the main thing on the list is playing water pistols with the grandkids when they come round.” The team also take tours around celebrity gardens, and the first celeb was TV presenter Jeff Brazier. It was David’s task to make Jeff’s mum’s garden footballfriendly for Jeff’s two boys and they were delighted by the result. David has been building award-winning gardens for the last decade and says, “I’ve always designed and built very challenging gardens for shows and sometimes they fit and sometimes they don’t. But my message always has been to try and stretch the barriers of gardening beyond the traditioOne of his claims to fame was that he introduced piranhas into the Chelsea Flower show – a design which won a Gold. “Great headline,” he laughs. “Gold Fish!” The garden he created for this year’s Hampton Court Palace, the

Naked Garden, designed in conjunction with the UK’s leading home improvement specialists, Anglian Home Improvements, won a Silver Medal. “All the plants were grown in laboratories devoid of soil and pots. They are suspended in huge hexagonal containers with all their roots showing.” It was a project which took over a year and he adds, “Now I’m thinking about the next expressive, energetic and challenging garden. What means more to us than any award is that everybody’s enjoying it because it’s refreshing, it’s new, and it’s challenging.” Bonnie reckons gardening is starting to appeal to more young people. “A lot of my friends if they see something nice they go ‘Oh yeah, I’d love that’ but they just don’t know how to do it. I think some gardening programmes and gardening books over-complicate it, they just need to make it more accessible to people. I think it’s just more of a case of ‘read the label’. They tell you basically what you’ve got to do with the plant.” David’s Tips Wherever you live, walk around your neighbourhood and look at what other people are growing in their gardens. Go into town go into the botanical gardens, see what you like. Most mobile phones have cameras on them – if not, nick a leaf. Go to the garden centre with it and tell them, I want that plant. It’s the best way. That way, nature is telling you what can and can’t grow. Feeding plants is key. House plants, outdoor plants, all need food on a regular basis.You can use household items. Coca-Cola makes a great plant food, it’s got to be full fat Coke – it’s the sugar content in that makes a good plant food. So does any fizzy drink that’s not diet. Tea is also very good – high in nitrogen and quite acidic – good for Azaleas, Rhododendrons, Camellias, and heathers. Another option is to use teabags broken up in the bottom of

And last, but not least, a tot of vodka in the water in your flower vase will keep cut flowers fresh for longer! Bonnie’s Tips In terms of planting, raised beds are good. Then you don’t have to worry too much about your soil and it’s not hard to dig over. Fix irrigation if you can and go for low maintenance plants like shrubs and perennials rather than annuals. Keep colours simple. A lot of people try to have one of this plant and one of that plant but it’s a lot more eye-catching to have groups of plants. If you’re going for purple then maybe have purple, blue and yellow instead of the whole spectrum of colours. I quite like to use old-fashioned materials: nice soft bricks, wood, and all the natural things but in a contemporary, simple way. I don’t like over-fussy designs. I like a fair bit of planting but I like it to be quite a minimalist palette. And most importantly, whatever your garden challenge, Bonnie’s top tip is: “Don‘t be afraid to give it a go!” For more info and plenty of gardening tips, visit: Garden ER is sponsored by Anglian Home Improvements Garden ER, Wednesdays, 7.30 pm, Channel 5

Amid the goings-on, Owl mistakenly relates the news that Christopher Robin has been abducted. However, all ends well when Pooh finds a land of sweet delights. Starring the voices of Jim Cummings and Bud Luckey. Out Of This World… Squared Circle... A job centre has advertised for professional wrestlers. They will work 14 hours a week and be prepared to step in the ring on ‘weekends, days and evenings’. The job notice advises would-be wrestlers that they ‘must be able to be sent on media interviews’, and will need to have the ‘drive and determination to succeed to the highest level.’ Furthermore, they will be required to be ‘professional in conduct

and have at least some experience of the wrestling industry.’ The ad notes: ‘Experience of working in the ring in front of paying crowds is desirable but training is available.’ Salary will be negotiable depending on experience. At The Next Right... About 250 rickshaws in New Delhi will be fitted with GPS devices as part of a trial period, with plans to roll out the scheme for all the vehicles in the city by the end of next month. The SatNav scheme is the latest attempt by city officials to improve the reputation of rickshaw drivers. The devices will serve the dual purpose of allowing the authorities to track journeys, while passengers can check they are being taken on the shortest possible route. There are currently around 55,000 three-wheeled rickshaws in New Delhi, with thousands using the vehicles every day to get around. Mixed Doubles... The World Wife Carrying Championships took place recently. The 16th annual event was in Finland and husbands and wives have been giving it their all. Competitors from 11 countries including Britain, Germany and Australia have been hauling their wives around an obstacle course in the annual wacky spouse race. The couples run over grass, sand and asphalt as well as tackling water obstacles reaching depths of up to a metre. The wives are carried in what is known as ‘Estonian style’, which looks like a bum deal for the women who are hauled upside down with legs around their husband’s shoulders. The roots of these comical championships are thought to date back to the late 1800s when Finnish villagers would steal women and carry them away on their backs. Ghost Car... America’s first transparent car – billed as a vision of the future more than 60 years ago – is expected to fetch up to £300,000 at auction. The 1939 Pontiac Deluxe Six was built using a special type of Perspex by General Motors and chemical company Rohm and Haas at a cost of £15,000. The car has clocked up just 86 miles in its lifetime and is thought to be a visionary in design principles. It made its public debut at the New York World Fair in 1939-40. The model which comes with a three-speed manual gearbox is thought to be the last of its kind. Zonkey or Donkra... A rare ‘zonkey’ has been born in a China zoo, the result of a moment of passion between a female zebra and a donkey who shared an enclosure at Xiamen Haicang Zoo in the southeast of the country. The zonkey weighed 30kg and was nearly a metre tall when it eventually arrived. When a male zebra mates with a female donkey - the opposite scenario to our new striped pal - it is known as a zebroid, a creature that’s apparently more common than a zonkey/donkra, according to people who know about these types of things. And Finally... A group of chess enthusiasts checked into a hotel and were standing in the lobby discussing their recent tournament victories. After about an hour, the manager came out of the office and asked them to disperse. “But why?” they asked, as they moved off. “Because”, he said, “I can’t stand chessnuts boasting in an open foyer.”

Powers of attorney

If a person lacks the mental capacity to make a particular decision it may be necessary for someone else to make that decision on their behalf - this is called power of attorney. Mental capacity means being able to make and communicate your own decisions. Someone might lose their mental capacity to make certain decisions if‚ for example‚ they have a stroke‚ are suffering from mental illness or develop dementia.The decisions could be about day-to-day things like what to wear or when to pay a bill‚ or they could be more important decisions such as where you should live or whether you should have a certain type of medical treatment.

The Mental Capacity Act

The Mental Capacity Act provides a legal framework to help empower people to make their own decisions and to make clear what actions carers and family can take. A code of practice explains how people should use it in everyday situations. The Act sets out five principles to follow when assessing whether someone lacks capacity and when making decisions on their behalf:

Ordinary Power of Attorney An Ordinary Power of Attorney gives someone else the power to handle your financial affairs on your behalf. The important thing to remember about an Ordinary Power of Attorney is that it comes to an end if you lose the mental capacity to make decisions about your finances. Lasting Power of Attorney If you want someone to be able to continue looking after your finances even if you lose mental capacity to make your own financial decisions and you are no longer able to supervise their actions‚ you should consider setting up a property and affairs Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA). This is a new power‚ that replaces the previous system of Enduring Powers of Attorney (EPAs). One big difference between LPAs and EPAs is that as well as setting up an LPA to cover your financial affairs‚ you can set one up to give someone else authority to make decisions about your healthcare and personal welfare when you can no longer make those decisions yourself

1. A presumption of capacity A person must be assumed to have capacity to make their own decisions unless it can be established that this is not the case. 2. The right to be supported to make a decision All practicable steps must be taken to help a person to make their own decision before anyone concludes that they do not have the capacity to do so. 3. The right to make unwise decisions A person should not be treated as unable to make a decision just because they make an unwise decision.

there is a risk of assets that increase in value being left exposed to tax as the threshold for inheritance tax is frozen until 2015. ‘It is therefore imperative for people looking to leave an inheritance and secure a comfortable retirement income to seek professional financial advice in the runup to retirement and to save as much as possible, as early as possible.’ According to the survey, men are more likely to leave an inheritance, with 56% stating that was their intention, compared to 48% of women. Across the UK, those retiring in Scotland this year were the most positive about their ability to leave an inheritance, with 67% planning to leave a financial legacy, compared to just 43% in Wales.

here are always plants that will come and go as garden fashions change and one that is always borderline is the Hydrangea. I can hear people now associating this plant with their Granny’s front garden, the name of ‘lacecap’ and also the remembering of the fact that can’t you change the flowers from blue to pink?! It is an overlooked plant but one which is worthy of a place in any garden. It does have a big advantage in it’s favour and that’s the ability to grow really well in containers. A few years ago it was fashionable to grow white lacecap hydrangeas in square Versailles tubs, the only place that do this now seems to be stately homes, but the Hydrangea is making an attempt at a comeback.

Hydrangeas are one of the classic seaside plants and flowering mostly from mid to late summer. Most of them will tolerate either full sun or semi shade and will be fairly happy in a moist position in the garden where it doesn’t dry out too easily, as a rule the drier the soil the more shade that is needed. With many different available hydranges it is often difficult to pick a good variety. One that I like is the good late-flowering ‘villosa’. This can grow to 10’ and so isn’t the ideal choice for a small garden but in the correct setting it has flowers that are blue in the centre and lavender to white outers. But for a more normal sized plot a choice from Hydrangea


macrophylla will give a good plant with names such as ‘Blue wave’ and ‘Blue Bonnet’ and also ‘Lanarth white giving a fair description of their colours. The colour of hydrangea flowers is all down to their ability to absorb aluminium and iron from the soil which can be stopped when the soil becomes alkaline. This is where the blue hydrangeas start to turn pink but by applying an application of a commercial ‘blueing’ agent or why not just try iron sulphate, you can return the flowers to blue. Within reason, the lower the PH of the soil the deeper the blue. However this does not apply to white hydrangeas whose flowers will stay white whatever you do. A regular feed of a general fertiliser is a good idea but as with most plants too much nitrogen will make the plants grow and not flower very much.

It is always reasonably easy to recommend plant varieties. It is not as easy though to go out and try to buy them! You can, as I know, spend months or years looking for a specific plant. Whatever hydrangea you have they tend to look great with border phlox, Cornus


‘Elegantissima’ that has variegated leaves, and surprisingly enough hardy fuschias and Hostas. Although hydrangeas, particularly the mopheads have a certain romantic feel, the cottage garden style with rustic fence and all that. I think they should be more widely used in our gardens. Admittedly they don’t do a great deal most of the year when planted in large clumps (much like banks of Rhododendron looking green most of the year) but when you consider the detailed leaves and some with peeling bark you can see the attraction of having them in the garden. In my opinion they work well with most hard landscaping materials in a confined setting such as a patio area. The leaves (and stems) look great with smooth painted timber and anything silver or lavender in colour works well with the leaves. For example a white painter timber seat with Lavender ‘Hidcote’ and a pale coloured hydrangea plus dwarf daffodils for spring colour would give year round colour and interest. Likewise a red coloured hydrangea with loose cobbles against a timber deck would be equally acceptable with the leaves softening the deck during summer but being in contrast with the straight deck boards and cobbles in winter. After flowering many of the hydrangea flowers tend to go a bronze colour as they dry out and can look very attractive. It also benefits the plant to leave the flowers on (although to what degree I don’t know) by adding some protection to the dormant buds that can be sensitive to frost. Hydrangeas are best pruned in spring. With such a straggly looking plant and a tangle of woody stems it does seem impossible especially on older plants. Whenever I’ve been pruning hydrangeas back I’ve followed what I’ve always been told and removed all stems that are more than three years old, although on old plants it’s best to remove only two thirds of the older stems this first time. This then lets light into the centre of the plant and promotes new growth and leaves the one and two year old stems to flower. Not so difficult really?! Finally there is a climbing hydrangea. H.petiolaris that will grow even on a north facing wall. It has white flowers although may not flower well when young. This will climb without the need for wires and is therefore very useful for growing a clematis up , try Clematis ‘The President’ for a north facing situation. All about •15




Which? test of automatic car braking systems has been revealed that they can significantly reduce the severity of collisions, and even prevent them altogether. We tested the systems used in the Audi A7, BMW 5 Series, Infiniti M37S, Mercedes CLS,Volkswagon Passat estate and Volvo V60. They all use sensors to ‘see’ vehicles or objects up ahead. If they detect an imminent collision they give an alert and, if the driver does not react, apply the brakes automatically - either to stop an impact or reduce its severity. In our test we recreated a number of situations, including approaching a slow-moving object, as well as one that was stationary. We also looked at the

effectiveness of alerts and how reliable each system was. The best system we tested was Volvo’s City Safety. It was very good at preventing crashes into stationary objects - working well at high speeds with early warning alarms. At up to 25mph, it reliably prevented a crash. The Mercedes Pre-safe and Audi Pre-Sense systems outperformed the Volvo in terms of reducing speed and lessening the severity of potential injuries at higher speeds. But they were both unable to stop a collision at all, or bring the car to a halt in front of stationary objects. The VW Front Assist system did stop in front of staionary objects, but only at very low speeds. At high speeds it wasn’t very reliable - setting off the

driver warnings too late or not at all. BMW’s Adaptive Brake Assistant warns the driver very early, but not very forcefully. If the driver does not react, it brakes only partially. With a stationery obstacle it did not brake at all. The Infiniti Intelligent Brake Assist was the poorest performer. It wasn’t effective enough at warning the driver od a potential collision, or reducing speed. VERDICT All the systems we tested are a safety bonus, even if they lower impact speed minimally. As a result, any of the systems are worth having, although they are currently available only as an optional extra on the Volvo, Audi and VW, where prices range from £675 (VW) to £2,600 (Audi). However, we hope that they will become a more common feature in future.
