e cannot believe that we are heading into Autumn already. It has been a really strange year,
The Inspero community shop and food hub has now successfully moved across from the Ridgeway in Buckskin to Kempshott Village Hall. Catherine and her team of volunteers spent a day transporting equipment and stores to enable this facility to be ready to open from 20th August. See page 26 for more information. Inspero have helped supply many food parcels to those people shielding or self isolating across the area covering Kempshott, Buckskin, Hatch Warren, Beggarwood, South Ham and Brighton Hill. Their assistance throughout this difficult period has been greatly appreciated by those requiring this service. A BIG THANK YOU goes out to all involved in stepping forward at this time as well as those stores that have assisted in providing food to fulfill the varied requirements Sadly one of our deliverers has had to retire, we thank her for her tireless help over the years.. We are in need of someone to deliver Brackley Way and Woodroffe Drive. These can be split into two rounds. Combined the roads cover 142 properties. If you feel you can assist please give me a call on 01256 354282.

At long last, I’ve had the necessary interviews and Risk Assessments to allow me back to the Neighbourhood Police offices. Initially this is on a trial basis and depends on how Social Distancing can be best implemented. It may involve other police office locations and may not be on the weekly basis as in the past.
As you’ve probably noticed, there has been little communication from our police, other than what has come out as Alert messages. There are pages on Twitter, Facebook and other Social Media from our police for those who might care to look. I have had several press releases which I’ve put onto the BDNW website at www.bdnw.org.uk/v3, but I have to say that the hits (reads) on recent articles are extremely low. Some of you may be concerned about browser messages that the website is “Not Secure”, so please remember our Web Manager’s message of last month. A few other issues have been passed to me, including Anti Social behaviour in Old Down Park and in the field attached to the Village Hall. I’m hoping that these incidents were just one-offs and that people will be more considerate in the future. I have also heard about speeding, where the roads have been more empty during lockdown. I saw this first hand recently in Pack Lane, despite traffic being much heavier than of late. Please remember that speed limits are there for everyone’s safety and that they are LIMITS and not TARGETS. Please keep your speed down your safety and for that of everyone else. Also for cyclists, please be aware of the rules and don’t risk a fine up to £500. Many people ask, but it is illegal to cycle on the pavement, unless there is a sign indicating a shared cycle path. Cycling on footways (such as a pavement by the side of a carriageway) is prohibited by Section 72 of the Highway Act 1835, amended by Section 85(1) of the Local Government Act 1888. The Highway Code also states: “You must not cycle on a pavement.” The offence of riding a bike on the pavement is punishable by an on-the-spot fine, a fixed penalty notice starting at £30. This is charged under Schedule 3 and Section 51 of the Road Traffic Offenders Act 1988. Please ride safely and considerately. National Neighbourhood Watch are partnering with the Home Office in running a Safety In Neighbours campaign as lockdown eases and they expect a rise in burglaries. More details can be found on their website at www.ourwatch.org.uk. Their main message is “Life’s safer when you know your Neighbours. With more people looking out for unusual behaviour on your street, burglaries and other crimes can be prevented”. For the duration of COVID-19 my police email is not likely to be available and I’m still volunteering mainly from home, please send feedback and comments to firstname.lastname@example.org which gets sent on to me so I can respond, but please allow a few days for a reply. Kind regards
Police Support Volunteer NW Basingstoke
Subject: Eagle Close Bonfires!!!! Dear Editor Why is it every time it’s extremely hot does the householder in Eagle Close always has to have a bonfire? How inconsiderate of them! It’s hot and humid, we all have our windows open to catch a bit of fresh air, and there they go and light a bonfire, which is a regular occurrence. It’s still early they decide to fill our houses with smoke from their garden rubbish.....how inconsiderate. They should be named and shamed. name and address supplied.

At Shooting Stars Nursery School we allow children to not be afraid of their emotions but to embrace them, we let them know it’s ok to be sad, angry and excited and we don’t tell them to simply stop and calm down. Instead we sit and join them, we give them time, we show them compassion and understanding and we role model. Sharing books, words, Makaton and puppets offers our children another way to explore their emotions and express exactly what they need to. In the uncertain world we live in today we need to give children the skills at a young age so they have the foundations of good mental health as they continue their learning journey. Our Shooting Stars will reach for the stars and shine! We are so excited that spaces are filling up for September and January so why not come and have a look at what all this means in reality! Social distance show rounds available at the end of each day! Call us to arrange 07900 600243

Carpe Diem To seize the day, to embrace life, to own it. To make your lives extraordinary, to live in the moment. No dead poets here, Just getting started, ‘2020’ is the year!. To let these words flow out, Taking hold without a doubt. Life’s too short we have to live in the present, Enjoying the now, whilst trying to ascent. Obstacles will get in the way, But we have to get back up and never hideaway. To grab every opportunity in our paths, To pursue what we want for that’s when we will go far. Like an artist seeking inspiration to use, To write, paint or to make music to find his own muse. The world we live in is one big challenge, We look to hope to help us manage. A classic Royal Navy saying when facing a conundrum, Quote: improvise adapt and overcome. It’s not always easy to see the way, Don’t hide into the shadows, be brave. Hold your head high and be happy and be free, Don’t hold back, grasp the carpe diem.
Harry Potter He lives in the wizarding world, and goes to Hogwarts school. He has a lot of friends, and he is very cool. The sorting hat put him in Gryffindor, because he is brave and bold. And Ron and Hermione joined in, to join Harry's adventure goal. All friends and teachers he's got, love him, care and keep him safe. He is kind and smart, with a special scar, and is always in the GOOD place. Voldemort, the Dark Lord however, fears Harry would become Great, so He plots to kill Harry like he killed his family, with his cunning mind, powers and hate. The brave Harry Potter challenges him, And overcomes him wide and far, The only way he and friends could do this, is because they are not dark!

Under cover of darkness
It was a moonless night as I approached their headquarters as silently as possible. Being almost invisible, dressed top to toe in full black clothing including head gear nothing stirred as my hand went up to signal the first assault, firing everything into the entrance of their base of operations then backing off and getting out of there as fast as possible in order to sustain no casualties. Better to live to fight another day. so far the only casualty was me as I had been superficially wounded in the hand that had threatened to go manky on me. Luckily I had the full backup necessary to make sure I had the needed medical care and I was back on my feet in a couple of days after the first skirmish. This night it was to be a hit and run, get in there do as much damage as possible and get out again and the plan was to let things settle down as they didn’t know they had been subjected to an evil plan to rid ourselves of them and that was to leave a trail of poison in the entrance so that every time any of them entered they would unwittingly take the poison in with them and it was a spreading poison that would eventually overwhelm them all but if I didn’t see the necessary depletion in their troops then we would attack again and again until every damn wasp in the nest was obliterated and I could do some necessary cement and brickwork repairs to make sure they don’t come back.

Kempshott Green SPACE Space KEMPSHOTTWildlife, WILDLIFE, GREEN Old Down & Beggarwood Wildlife Group
As the covid crisis continues both sites remain popular with visitors and it is lovely to see that the sites are appreciated and enjoyed. The play areas are busy and Beggarwood’s have been particularly well used. I hope that you are all noticing the beautiful wildflowers and insects, particularly butterflies, on both sites. A rare sight on Beggarwood last month was a chalkhill blue butterfly – bit bigger than the small blue butterfly which is prolific on Old Down. Another rare sight, this time on Old Down, was a clouded yellow butterfly. Down on the Manydown hedge there are always lots of little brown birds (LBJ’s) about. Usually a large number of house sparrows can be seen and heard – indeed the other day there must have been at least 50 whizzing about. But within that same habitat there other LBJ’s – such as dunnock, wren and goldfinch. From a distance, the dunnock could easily be overlooked and taken to be a sparrow. Dunnocks are greyer and less marked. They tend to stay lower down in hedges and have a lovely song, unlike the sparrow which tends to just ‘chatter’. The goldfinch is a bit smaller than the sparrow but in no way is it brown; it has beautiful colourful markings; gold, red, white and black. One of the UK’s most colourful birds. See photos.
Male and female house sparrow
The other day on Old Down, I was near a toddler (age only 3 or 4) who stopped at the top of the grassy path leading from the wooded path and said (to his mother) – “I like this view”. And he wanted to carry on down the grassy path so he could see the view of the fields and trees in the distance. That was so cute and wonderful – at such a young age to notice, appreciate and admire his surroundings. It is indeed a wonderful view from Old Down. So Council members and officers – please, please keep these wonderful places and spaces for the coming generations to enjoy and wonder at. Work Parties – We are still awaiting the Council’s okay to start work parties and for it to sort out PPE issues. So, yet again – maybe next month. Please check the group’s website and Facebook page (Old Down and Beggarwood Wildlife Group) for information on when that might be. Please also look at our Facebook page for regular photos of the sites and the wildlife. Internet: www.olddownandbeggarwood.org.uk
FUZZY DROVE CONSERVATION GROUP In a year which is different to say the least from previous years, one thing stays the same in that the nights are drawing in and temperatures are slowly dropping and, unless we are experiencing an “Indian summer”, leaves may be starting to change colour. For some of us, it feels like autumn is imminent, but when does autumn officially start? There are two ways to look at it, either by the astronomical calendar, in other words, the seasons change when we reach an equinox or a solstice. So that means the first day of autumn is 22nd September, and the last is 21st December, or by the meteorological idea that autumn starts on the 1st September and last until 30th November. This method splits the year into four seasons of three whole months which makes meteorological observing and forecasting easier. What’s the difference between an equinox and a solstice? An equinox is when the sun is visible above the horizon and below the horizon for equal time – 12 hours each. This corresponds to the sun being apparently directly overhead at noon on the equator. That happens on 21 March and 21 September. A solstice is the longest or shortest day in each hemisphere of the earth, usually reckoned from the north (that’s us). So our winter solstice is 21 December (midwinter’s day) and the summer solstice is on 21 June.
ANDConservation CONSERVATIONNews NEWS for FOR September SEPTEMBER and Signs of autumn in Fuzzy Drove. A familiar sign of autumn is leaves changing colour. This is a visible signal of the physical and chemical changes going on inside the plant as it prepares for winter. Plants depend on light for photosynthesis to work, so that they can grow, change and reproduce. Less light and heat means that plants will either slow down their metabolisms as winter approaches or, if they are annual plants, it will be time to set seed and then die. Many perennial plants will shed their leaves in winter and go into a state akin to hibernation in animals. If they shed their leaves – making them deciduous plants – they withdraw chemicals and nutrients from those leaves into the main body of the plant, such as the trunk and roots of a tree. This also rids them of products they will no longer need when they are resting, or that would even be harmful if kept in the main body of the plant. At the same time, many of these large perennials will be setting their seeds and then shedding them. All of this will be taking place in the Drove. Signs of autumn in animals. Animal populations change and move at this time of year too. Summer-visiting birds fly south to warmer climates for our winter, whilst others come from further north to stay with us. Swallows and swifts, nightingales, chiffchaffs and willow warblers are well-known examples of those that leave at the end of summer. Animals like Hedgehogs which hibernate will be feeding to put on as much weight as possible to see them through the winter. Working Parties. We hope to run some working parties in September which will be managed in such a way that social distancing will be maintained and equipment managed to ensure that everyone is kept protected and safe to reduce the possibility of handling potentially contaminated items.

Meadow meanderings. "It's been a funny year" is a common refrain for all sorts of reasons. In Down Grange Meadow, most flower species have had a fantastic year. After eight years or so, species seeded in our scraped areas are popping up all over the place, probably spread by wind and/or birds. At the beginning of August, the Council’s biodiversity team visited the meadow when it was looking its best. We think they were quietly impressed with what they saw. There are also a couple of new species, notably Betony (Betonica officinalis) and Clustered Bellflower (Campanula glomerata). Some Betony was plug planted at the end of last year in our dampest and shadiest spot because that's their favoured habitat. However, when walking round with the Council officers they also noticed some more on an open patch in full sun that we had not planted - that's a result! Some Nettle-leaved Bellflower (Campanula trachelium), which likes semi-shaded woodland edge type habitats, has also been planted. We have not bothered with trying to introduce its meadow cousin, the Clustered Bellflower, but it has appeared anyway. It's also been a good year for day-flying moths. When doing a butterfly transect right at the end of July, a Hummingbird Hawk Moth was recorded, the first report for the site that we are aware of.
There are more and more reports of deer in the meadow. At the beginning of August two of our members disturbed a female Roe deer that disappeared into the Spinney. We have deliberately tried to cordon-off the Spinney from human disturbance by blocking up entrances and making it as difficult as possible for the youths who used to frequent it for drinking or worse to gain access. It’s in the bag! We use ex-builders "Euro-bags" for all kinds of jobs around our sites, typically as "drag-bags" for collecting and moving arisings around. All our bags are showing their age and need to be replaced. If you have any spare one cubic metre bags you could let us have, we would be very grateful. Please contact Marion on (01256) 470171 and we will collect. Many thanks.
PROBUS AND THE LOVE OF BANK NOTES In normal times we handle it every day. Money, they say, makes the world go around. Others see it as the root of all evil. These days we are using less coinage but an increasing use of cards, however bank notes make us feel good if we have plenty in our wallet.
Basingstoke is the headquarters of Thomas de la Rue, the world-famous producer of bank notes, and Probus Club of Basingstoke member, John Swain, was employed in that specialised printing industry all his working life. Leaving grammar school at 16 he followed his father into the printing trade and undertook an apprenticeship of five years as a camera operator. On becoming a journeyman he joined security printer Bradbury Wilkinson in New Malden and as John says “learned about making security documents and how to spot and prevent forgeries.” Despite operating in a tightly controlled secure environment it was noticed that some Travellers cheques began to go missing. Despite stringent checks on employees at entry and exit of the factory it was only by spotting which member of staff was enjoying exotic holidays and had a new car they discovered he was simply using a Royal Mail post box in their reception to send an envelope to his home. An intended advancement to head up their photographic studio did not proceed as the company was taken over by Thomas de la Rue, but instead he become the general manager of the New Malden plant. “All I had to do was to reverse a deficit of £12 million which in five years turned into a profit of £2 million.” Moving to Basingstoke in 1990 to head up a new, large photographic and proofing department was a continuous learning curve as the printing of the latest style of notes can involve over fifty security features as well as three different printing processes with visible and invisible fluorescent inks and holographic images. Moving from water marked cotton-based papers, made by their Overton mill, to the latest polymer substrate is not as new as one might think. Back in 1970 Bradbury Wilkinson produced the Isle of Man £1 notes on plastic but then discovered that the ink came off if a note was accidently left in clothes put in a washing machine. Eventually, after over two decades of research, the problem was solved, but by an Australian printer. Visiting overseas De La Rue production facilities became a regular occurrence for John and after one trip he was stopped by a Customs officer at Heathrow. On this occasion the standard documentation he carried failed to impress the officer and as currency printing plates and ink looked suspicious the officer demanded the plate box and ink be opened. It was explained that it contained specialist fluorescent ink that was also indelible and should, on no account be touched. Of course, the officer got ink on his fingers and made the situation worse by using a tissue to spread it over his hands. John smiled at this recollection. “That was a good few years ago, so I guess it has worn off by now.”
BASINGSTOKE LIONS CLUB At last we escaped sequestration and actually met for Handover. It was a pretty joyful occasion even
though social distancing was still the norm. I think a lot of the “joy” was occasioned by the fact that there was no handover whatsoever. It was very definitely a case of “stet” as far as the top jobs were concerned. But there was nevertheless cause for celebration as we welcomed Sarah Williams and Charlotte Gruntowska into the Club. Both have already proven their worth in many ways, but particularly in their support for the Fleet computer regeneration and distribution scheme. And they are full of ideas!!!! Half way through the evening our President, Tony Bamberger, was left uncharacteristically lost for words when, to universal acclaim, he was voted our Lion of the Year. It was an award very well earned. All in all we look forward to the year ahead with some optimism. Since 1992 Quiz Nights have been a good fundraiser for us. In fact we were due to have one in April at the Cliddesden Millenium Hall when the dreaded Corona Virus struck and we were forced to cancel. We (I) have been slow to exploit the potential of Zoom for this activity. But, on 1 August, we’re going to have a go. Our regulars have been as slow to react as we have, but applications are now rolling in. Should be fun provided there are no slips between cup and lip!! We are also now considering acts which we might get to perform for us at the British Legion. We have a number of groups who have given us Jazz, Motown and Rock nights there which were well supported. And it boosts the takings of the Legion (which is of course another charity) as well as ours. And the stop press news is that we will be having our next business meeting there instead of on Zoom. Yippee!!!! Remember, you too can help to make a difference to the lives of others by joining us via www.basingstokelions.org.uk

My marriage has come to an end but I am not ready for a divorce, what can I do?
Farah Khalid, Family Law Solicitor, replies: Some spouses may be of the view that the marriage is at an end, but are not emotionally ready to deal with the divorce or may have other reasons as to why they do not wish to commence divorce proceedings so they decide to leave matters in limbo. This, effectively, means that parties are not able to deal with financial matters as the divorce proceedings must at least progress to the Decree Nisi stage before a financial consent order can be filed with the Court. Leaving matters in limbo can create a number of issues for the parties who should, therefore, focus on the interim position such as entering into a separation agreement with their spouse setting out the division of their matrimonial assets. There are a number of advantages of a separation agreement some which are:1. Certainty - the parties can agree how their finances will be arranged during the period of separation and how their finances will be divided if they later divorce. This can save the uncertainty, time and stress of later contested financial remedy proceedings. Should matters progress to contested financial remedy proceedings, while a Court is not bound by a separation agreement, in practice, its terms will usually be upheld if:(a) Both parties sought independent legal advice upon the terms of the separation agreement; (b) Both parties were transparent and had given full and frank financial disclosure to one another; and (c) The agreement was fundamentally fair and reasonable in all circumstances. 2. Supporting personal beliefs - some parties may not want to divorce for religious, personal or cultural reasons. A separation agreement may be an appropriate compromise where the parties believe the marriage is at an end, but do not wish to obtain a divorce. 3. Ability to retain benefits that are lost on divorce - some benefits, such as cover under medical insurance policies, life insurance policies and pensions, are not available once couples divorce. These benefits are often still available where the parties are separated as they remain married. 4. Flexibility - a separation agreement can contain provisions or deal with issues that are beyond the scope of the Court's jurisdiction, which makes them very flexible. 5. Halfway house - some couples may feel that the marriage is close to ending, but are not emotionally ready to divorce. A separation agreement is a helpful first step towards divorce from which the parties are able to row back if they wish. 6. Potential for reconciliation - as the marriage still exists, the couple can decide to reconcile at a later stage should they wish to do so. Therefore, parties should give careful consideration as to how they wish to deal with matters on the breakdown of a marriage. Leaving matrimonial matters in limbo may seem easier for the moment, but that is not the solution and may prove to cause difficulties in the future. Therefore, secure your future by dealing with your issues in the present. If you need advice regarding your matrimonial matters, please do not hesitate to contact me on 01256 320 555 or email me on email@example.com. We currently offer all new family law clients an initial consultation (1 hour) with written confirmation of advice for £100 plus VAT. Do you have a legal query?

BASINGSTOKE CITIZENS ADVICE Research and Campaigns. Citizens Advice is a free, non-judgemental and confidential advice charity. We see the myriad of difficulties faced by people on a wide range of topics. Across the country we collect, categorise, and collate a huge amount of anonymised data about these difficulties. This enables our Research and Campaigns teams (both local and national) to identify areas of unfairness and campaign for changes that will benefit everyone, not just those who seek us out. Here are a few recent examples ● After witnessing unfair treatment and irresponsible practices we campaigned successfully for Payday companies to be regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority. Hundreds of these companies have been shut and changes have been made in the advertising rules. Proper monitoring and compensation are now in place to help consumers. ● As Universal Credit, the government’s flagship welfare reform was rolled out we identified a number of policies that drove claimants into debt. Numerous changes were made, and subsequently the Help to Claim service was started to help new claimants. ● A major current focus is on the “loyalty penalty” where companies from finance, energy, internet/telephony and insurance industries exploit their existing customers in pursuit of new customers. We have already had a success in reducing energy bills by up to £200 per annum, per household. Coronavirus Not surprisingly coronavirus has had a huge impact on peoples’ livelihoods and at Citizens Advice we have been monitoring this since before lock-down. Here are a few highlights from the months up to August: ● Enquiries from people in private rented accommodation have trebled, as rents are high, and tenures are often less secure. This is much more of a concern in Basingstoke that the “average” UK town. ● The average age of those seeking our help is lower than it was before. We believe this is partly due to an increase in digital help and partly because the shake-ups in the jobs market and housing market affects younger people disproportionately. ● As the furlough scheme ends, we are anticipating an increase in unemployment and in Universal Credit claimants. We want the DWP to take a sensitive approach to the UC conditionality applied to the claimant commitment. This needs to ensure that those who are shielding or who have child-care commitments are not expected to seek inappropriate work.

WEDDING DELAYED? DON’T FORGET TO SORT OUT YOUR WILL For those who made plans for their wedding or civil partnership this year, there is little doubt that the coronavirus has caused serious disruption.
Understandably, many couples have decided to delay their special day until next year. Although it does not sound very romantic, it is worth remembering that a marriage or civil partnership is a contract, which legally recognises your spouse or civil partner. Couples who live together but who are not married or in a civil partnership are at a disadvantage as there is very little provision for cohabiting partners should one die. Claire-Marie Selwood, who is a Wills and Probate Solicitor at Phillips Solicitors incorporating Brain Chase Coles explains: “Despite what many people think, there is no such thing as ‘Common Law Marriage’.” “If you die without a Will, your estate will be governed by the Rules of Intestacy, and your life partner/cohabitee will not be classed as your next of kin. The Rules of Intestacy will determine how your property is divided and distributed irrespective of the number of years you have lived together. This could result in your estate being divided amongst your surviving family members to the exclusion of your life partner/cohabitee and this may not be what you would want to happen.” “Therefore, I would strongly advise cohabiting couples who are postponing their wedding or civil partnerships to make a Will.” Ordinarily, a Will made prior to marriage is automatically revoked once the marriage has taken place unless the Will is explicitly made in contemplation of that marriage. “We can easily arrange for a Will to be drafted with a clause that incorporates the intention to marry or form a civil partnership. This means you don’t have to wait until after you are married to make your Will,” said Claire-Marie. “They provide clarity and peace of mind. If you are not sure when your wedding of civil partnership will take place, you can use the time in the lead up to your delayed nuptials to make suitable provision for your future spouse or civil partner.” For more information about making a Will please contact Claire-Marie Selwood by calling 01256 854622, emailing email@example.com or by visiting www.phillips-law.co.uk/ wills-probate Phillips Solicitors incorporating Brain Chase Coles Town Gate 38 London Street Basingstoke Hampshire RG21 7NY t. 01256 460830 f. 01256 854638 e. firstname.lastname@example.org w. phillips-law.co.uk dx. 123073 Basingstoke 10

REMEMBERING STONES Transition & Transformation
Hello. My name is Debbie Veel. I am one of the Licensed Lay Ministers (LLM’s or Readers as they are sometimes known) at St. Mark’s church. LLM’s are not ordained, so we don’t wear a dog collar, but we can do much of what a vicar can do with some notable exceptions. We can’t bless the communion wine and bread; we can’t marry people nor do we baptise anyone. Interestingly enough, we can lead funerals. Other than that we preach, lead worship, prayer and mid-week groups and we are involved in the running of the church. I think of it as being a bit like being a deputy head of a school.
St Marks Church are planning to mark this unusual year with a memorial within the Church grounds. (See page 29) for more details.
I am writing this month because, as you may or may not know, the Rev. Kelvin and Jane Taylor left St. Mark’s at the end of May. They had been with us for nine years and we are sad to see them go. Many exciting things have happened in the church and community under their leadership.

There It is a time of change and transition for them and for the church.
may also be some less pleasant changes happening in your life- divorce, unemployment, bereavement.
In the church’s year, the weeks just gone still form part of the ‘Easter Season’. It was a time of transition and change for Jesus’ disciples too. They had travelled around the country with Jesus, listening to him teach and preach, watching him do miracles and healings. But they hadn’t quite understood ‘what he was really about.’
If you are collecting items please let us know and collectively perhaps we can make a difference.

Our Values Make Us Different
Covid-19 Coronavirus Update We’d like to extend a huge thank you to customers following the latest government guidance for the wearing of face coverings whilst shopping in our store. To clarify, colleagues will not be challenging customers who aren’t wearing a face covering, as we recognise that many customers are included in the exempt list from wearing one. Sainsbury’s were the first supermarket to adopt the ‘Sunflower Lanyards’ which many of our customers, and indeed colleagues, wear to indicate they have a hidden disability. We continue to monitor the number of customers within the store and our team of greeters at the front of the store continue to enjoy welcoming you to Kempshott. Click and Collect We’ve seen a huge uptake in customer demand for our popular Click and Collect service in the car park. Typically, over 100 collections are made each day from the two vans. If you are at all nervous about shopping within the store, why not give the service a try? You can book slots during three periods during each day and, our colleagues will bring the shopping to your car for you to unpack and leave. Smart Shop Similarly, we continue to see more customers use our smart shop devices to complete their shopping.This not only minimises the number of times your products could be handled but, the handsets provide you with a running total of your basket.
UNIQUE BLOCK PAVING
Our Smart Shop hosts will guide you through any queries you may have. Nectar We’re updating Nectar in a huge way during September. If you haven’t already downloaded the new Digital Nectar App to your smart-phone, now is the time. Keep an eye out within the store for more details. Lindt Chocolates We’ve added a new ‘Pick and Mix’ Lindt Chocoalte offer, which can be found in Aisle 11

Back in March when Boris Johnson asked us to simply stay at home I don’t think anyone could have envisaged just how long it was going to be for. Like most other organisations Kempshott WI has to be guided by Government directives and we still await the announcement that allows us to resume meetings. Although Kempshott Village Hall has now reopened, as a committee we are unable to comply with their Covid risk assessment document because of our membership numbers and we were faced with the same problem when we tried to arrange a meeting outside. Reluctantly therefore we have come to the conclusion that it is not safe to attempt to meet at the moment. I know this is frustrating for everyone and I can only assure every member that we will meet again as soon as guidelines indicate it is safe to do so. I may be being optimistic but I would like to think that a January meeting could be possible or even a December meeting, we can but hope. Should you have any questions or concerns regarding the WI please contact me on 01256 771084 or our President Barbara Hutton 01256 460475.

INSPERO COMMUNITY SHOP Inspero moved its Community Hub to Kempshott Village Hall and
opened its doors as a community shop in August for local people’s benefit. The shop contains a wide range of foods, both fresh and ambient food, basic hygiene items and other products. The shop is open twice a week on a Tuesday and Thursday between 12-1pm, people are welcome to come and pick what foods and other items they need in this challenging time for a donation. The shop is located in the community room around the side of the building by the new patio area. If you need support during this difficult time, please come and have a look, there will be plenty of different types of food including fruit, veg and Greggs bakery items. If you can afford to donate food items, please come and have a chat with us. During this pandemic Inspero would like to ensure that local people are supported as best as possible. www.inspero.org.uk www.facebook.com/love2grow @insperouk
9Sometimes REASONS YOU’RE ALWAYS HUNGRY hunger is about nutrition, but not always. When it comes to dieting/ health/ anything to do with the human body
I really truly believe in a holistic approach 1) You’re rushing Too big of a calorie deficit for what your lifestyle can cater for 2) You don’t sleep enough Poor quality or not enough sleep, we know sparks the hunger hormone at a later date 3) Not enough protein The macronutrient that will keep you fullest for longest. If you’re not consistently eating a portion of protein at each meal, as a minimum, please don’t complain to me that you’re hungry! 4) You’re stressed Whether it’s the traditional, hotheaded stress, or a stress on the body such as lack of sleep for example, stress can spark the hunger hormone 5) Constantly dehydrated You know the saying “if you’re hungry, drink a glass of water”… I’m afraid that is true 6) Too many nutrient – less foods Vitamins, minerals, antioxidants + fibre. Don’t underestimate the power of fruit + veg in your diet. Another boring one, but trust me on this one! 7) Your diet is consuming you It’s all you think about, it’s becoming so much that you’re actually stressing about it, which then leads to you overthinking and… overeating 8) You exercise a lot You burn lots of calories, your body wants to replenish those calories to heal and repair the muscles used, but you’re not treating it with the respect it needs, so it’s crying out for help (calories) 9) You’re spreading your calories too thin Eating breakfast at 6am and dinner at 9pm is a long time. Shorten the calorie window; reduce the stress on your body and the hunger hormone Think about it like this. Your body is a machine, that works together smoothly by the screws that keep it in place If one screw is out of place, it puts pressure on the rest of the screws, which then have to do their own job, and the job of another - That’s never not going to end in tears, right?! Be kind to your body......Know your limits Personalise your nutrition, fitness + health to fit in line with your goals and your lifestyle Remember holistic Be holistic

KEEPING SAFE FROM MALWARE
Following on from the article last month, these are the top tips to keeping safe from malware. Protect your system Keep Anti-Virus Software up to date – irrespective of what antivirus you have, it’s important that you ensure your anti-virus software is up to date and that the pattern/signature file is also up to date. The pattern file is used by the anti-virus software to identify the viruses/malware and these files are released daily, and in some cases more often. The reason why this is so important is that new viruses and malware is discovered at the same rate. It’s a constant cat and mouse game played between the anti-virus companies and the criminals and the only chance you have at staying safe is to keep up to date. Keep your Operating System current – The Operating System is the large collection of programs and system libraries that make you computer work. This includes all the files required to make the hardware work; these are known as drivers. Most malware and viruses take advantage of bugs and errors in the Operating System or programs, like Microsoft Excel or Adobe Acrobat, to take control of your system and install malicious software to perform all types of hidden tasks. For instance, some malware tracks everything you do and then logs every key you hit on the keyboard. From this they can extract passwords and other sensitive data. As operating systems improve over time, the main vendors (Apple and Microsoft) end support for out of date systems so no longer provide bug patches. This happened to Windows 7 earlier this year so any serious issues with Windows 7 will not be fixed. Back Up Your Files – This is probably the most important aspect of any protection. Every week I am asked to recover data from a compromised system and sadly, in some cases, it’s impossible because the data has been encrypted by malware. Having a good backup also protects against physical damaged caused through accidental fluid spills or physical droppage. There are many solutions for backing up from using cloud-based disk solutions like One Drive, Dropbox, Google drive or a dedicated cloud backup like Carbonite, CrashPlan or IDrive. Whilst some people mistrust cloud solutions, it’s important to balance the solution they deliver up against loss of data. How important are those photos/documents to you? Whilst it’s possible to backup to a USB stick, most people don’t keep up the habit and should you have a fire, the computer and the memory stick will be lost. Be aware of social engineering Read emails carefully – as explained last month, phishing emails are not only becoming cleverer but also more targeted with the simple aim to garner trust. I documented how easy it was to spoof email addresses to make it look like the email is from an known associate and how easy it is to create links that go to fake websites that use real assets from real sites to further provide comfort during the misconception. Watch out for threatening emails that say we are closing your Amazon account if you don’t act. They try to convince you that if you do not respond immediately your account will be suspended or you will lose money as a result. Always remain suspicious of any email. Do not call fake tech support numbers – When browsing the web, a compromised site will often display a popup dialog saying there’s something wrong with your computer and to call this number now! It’s important to know that NO tech companies will call you, email you or text you to say there’s something wrong with your computer. And no tech companies will ask you to call a telephone number. These fake call centres only exist to scam money out of you. Do not believe the cold callers – As mentioned above, no tech companies will ever call you with problems about your computer, but some cold callers are calling for other reasons. These include fake calls from you ISP saying that your broadband is getting cut off. Others offering refunds as you’ve been overcharged. Whatever the reason, most of these call centres ask to connect to your PC to sort out the issues. NEVER let any company connect to your PC! Legitimate companies do not do this unless you have a service agreement with them. Also never provide any personal information. Whilst these people seem to know about you, this data has been purchased from illegal sites that have complied and collated data from many sources. Use strong passwords I’ve written about password many times and one issue I still see time and again is the reusing of weak password across many accounts. I understand the difficulty of having to remember different passwords so it’s quite acceptable to keep these written down in a book as this is far safer than using the same password. The reason for this is that should a hacker get hold of a list of usernames and password from a small company or website, there’s a good change that password works for your email address or other sites like Amazon. Ideally, sign up for a password manager that stores all your unique and complicated password. A service like Lastpass is only $3 per month. That’s less than the price of a cup of coffee and makes your life simpler and safer. Practice safe Browsing Firstly, always make sure you web browser is up to date as this is the first line of attack. Avoid sites with dubious content, such as porn sites and illegal downloads. Temptation is used as the bait and these sites are littered with fake links and dodgy downloads. Also, don’t assume that all sites are safe because even legitimate sites have been hacked to deliver dangerous content. Installing a browser plugin, like uBlock Origin, helps to remove a lot of bad content but can have drawbacks with some genuine sites as they use tracking cookies to work. Most importantly, if something doesn’t feel right, there’s a good change its not.
