A couple of bits to note this month; we have some cracking events going on in the way of the Oxfam Ceilidh, held at Bakewell Medway Centre on the 24th February. There is also half-term coming up and if you are looking for some interesting ways to entertain your little monkeys, check out our What’s on Diary, you won’t be disappointed with some cracking events at the Longshaw Estate, Chatsworth & Bolsover Castle. As promised last month, we have brought you a new feature! A spandangly new crossword. We are interested in getting sponsors for this feature so that we can offer our wonderful readers a prize. So if you know anyone that might be interested, then please pass on my details. In other news, I’m making some good headway on the charity dog work already! Somewhat surprisingly the husband didn’t seem too objectionable in the first week in January and so I quickly capitalised on this and booked in for a home check two weeks later!! Standby for further updates… Happy Reading, Emily x

Book Review

Lizzie Fawkes grows up in an idealistic radical family in Bristol at the turn of the 18th century, a time of revolt and violence across Europe. Her mother writes pamphlets on women’s rights, their social circle is dangerously close to the French revolution. Fear of The Terror, as it became known, is spreading nearer home. But Lizzie marries away from her background, for love, or more accurately for lust, to a property developer who has everything to lose from the social upheaval and war threatening to move across the channel. Birdcage Walk, by Helen Dunmore, starts with a woodland burial and its unsettling menace hangs over the events of the book. Violence lies just below the surface. But this is not a thriller, or a murder mystery. What it does give us is a sense of what it means to be an ordinary person caught up in personal turmoil and tragedy as history drives the human story forward. It’s also a story about women and love. The Birdcage Walk of the title is the upmarket mansion development which Lizzie’s husband is selling his soul for. But it’s also a perfect image for Lizzie’s life – trapped in the cage of his expectations of a wife and his possessiveness. The consequences of the revolution are human scale in this book. There is a lot of period detail, but a warmth and simplicity about the story telling which makes it a good read. It was also Helen Dunmore’s last book. She died last summer and this final novel is a fine and satisfying piece of writing.

Gardener’s Calendar ~ February 2018

It may still be freezing some days, but February is a good time to get the garden ready for the sudden burst of spring. Pruning is a good start and lots of plants will benefit if you get moving now. With shrubs such as buddleia, hydrangea and fuchsia – all late flowerers – you can take about a third off the height. Cut, using clean secateurs, above an outward facing bud. Roses other than climbers or ramblers, should be pruned back to just above the second outward facing bud from the base of each stem. The “outward-facing” rule stops the centre of the plant getting congested, and hopefully will help to ward off disease. It also helps shape the plant. Clematis which flowers mid to late summer can be hard pruned back to a strong pair of buds. But early flowerers should just be tidied up. If you chop them too hard you risk taking off flower buds. If you’ve left last year’s perennial growth you can now cut back to ground level before this year’s crown starts to grow. And finally winter pansies may look as if they’ve given up the ghost in the darkest days, but if you clear any dead flowers and the worst of the straggle, they should start coming back as we get more daylight.

Top Tip!

If you want to do your bit for wildlife, you could try bird nesting boxes. The RSPB has plenty of advice online and sells boxes for different bird species. Just remember to fix them somewhere quiet, away from marauding moggies and facing away from the sun.
