Yate Rotary Club Grand Annual Quiz Night Terrific turnout for the annual Yate Rotary Club Quiz Night, held as usual in the Main School Hall of Yate Academy. 20 teams of four battled it out through 8 challenging rounds, including one on pictures of „Bridges Worldwide‟, and another „Yes or No‟. The competitors paused only at half time to refresh their drinks and to eat their Ploughman‟s Supper which was included in the entry price. President Elect, Richard Gilpin, acted as Master of Ceremonies and the very professional Quizmaster was Clive Perrett. All rounds were marked by 4 designated markers and the winning team was 'Heaven Help Us We‟re Mad' President Darren Williamson presented the trophy to Team Leader Tina Morgan of Yate, and her team members. Over £600 was raised to support local charities, and the ongoing international campaign to eradicate polio from the last few places in the world where this devastating disease is still ruining lives.

De Vere Tortworth Court Raises Funds for Macmillan Cancer Support De Vere Tortworth Court, part of De Vere‟s collection of historic mansion house estates and distinctive contemporary hotels and event destinations, has raised £2,757.48 for Macmillan Cancer Support through a series of fundraising activities, including a fireworks event for the local community. In November 2019, De Vere Tortworth Court invited 500 residents to attend the fireworks display and enjoy live music, BBQ food, a crêpe van, toy vendor and tea and coffee served on the terrace, of which all the proceeds went to Macmillan Cancer Support. The team also participated in various other events throughout the year including a 24-hour static bike ride in the hotel‟s reception, swimming the length of the channel in the onsite pool and cycling to and from the hotel and sister hotel De Vere Cotswold Water Park. Raphael Herzog, General Manager at De Vere Tortworth Court, commented: “At De Vere Tortworth Court, we are always looking for ways to support charities in our local area. It‟s a delight to be able to support the work of Gloucestershire‟s Macmillan Cancer Support team. We look forward to continuing our fund-raising activities throughout 2020.” Catherine North, Fundraising Manager for Macmillan Cancer Support Gloucestershire, said: “Macmillan Cancer Support is here to help everyone with cancer live life as fully as they can, by providing physical, financial and emotional support. Macmillan is a national charity but to help fill the gap in the UK cancer care system, we deliver our services locally. In 2018 Macmillan invested over £900,000 into its Gloucestershire cancer services including an oncology dietician and cancer nurse specialists in skin, gynaecology and haematology cancers. “We could not do this without the support of the local community as Macmillan does not receive government funding. The support received from the staff at De Vere Tortworth Court has been amazing and the £2,757.48 raised really does make a difference to people living with cancer in Gloucestershire.” De Vere Tortworth Court is nestled between Gloucester and Bristol, and easily accessible from the M5 and M4. www.devere.co.uk/tortworth-court

You’ve got a Dementia Friend If you are concerned about coping with Dementia, the Alzheimer’s Society initiative known as Dementia Friends could help you. All of the team at Simpson Solicitors in Chipping Sodbury have registered as “Dementia Friends” to show those with dementia that they will receive a warm welcome. Solicitor John Baden-Daintree says, “When helping with Wills and Powers of Attorney, it is important our team understands how to welcome and support people with dementia along with their families. Dementia Friends is an excellent initiative that has given us great i insight”.

John and Michelle Baden-Daintree

Dementia is caused by diseases of the brain and is not a natural part of ageing. There are many types that have different effects and which progress at different speeds. Dementia Friends explains the need to be patient with people with dementia - to help see beyond their dementia; and how, with the right support, it is possible to live well with dementia. Some support requires Lasting Powers of Attorney to be in place. These are legal documents where you appoint those you trust to speak up for you and to help you make decisions about you money, property and medical treatment – if you became too ill to be able to do this on your own. These have to be set up in advance whilst you have the mental capacity needed. Simpson Solicitors’ complete service can prepare, register and activate Lasting Powers of Attorney – with no hidden costs. Michelle Baden-Daintree of Simpson Solicitors says “The Dementia Friends training highlighted how people with dementia can often still communicate their wishes – they just need more time to get their thoughts across. We can help them by not interrupting but by smiling and being encouraging. Then with Lasting Powers of Attorney they can continue to make their own decisions for as long as possible.”

Latest news and pictures from Hedgehog Rescue, with thanks to Rich McD Photography

Hedgehog Rescue is a voluntary group of individuals who care for sick, injured and orphaned hedgehogs, within South Gloucestershire, covering South Gloucestershire, Bath, Somerset & Bristol. Coordinated by Yate-based carer Yvonne Cox, the money raised from talks, adoptions, donations and sales go to pay for food, cages and medications etc. This month Yvonne gives readers information on helping hedgehogs and the latest news from the Rescue Centre. Congratulations to Yvonne and her team of volunteers for winning a recent Bristol Prestige Award earlier this year for Wildlife Care Service of the Year! Angie Yvonne writes...... Spring is on it’s way and you may have heard some snuffling in the garden. Well our prickly friends are not really certain whether to wake up or not as the temperatures and rising and plummeting like no one ’s business. Plus the deluge of rain has made rather swamp like conditions especially on Yate’s rather clay soil. So by the time this goes to print i hope our spikey pals have awoken and the weather is dryer and warmer. If so it maybe time to start offering some food and water for our hedgehogs that may have gone several months without eating or drinking. Signs that your hedgehog isn’t well post hibernation is a very thin back end, a hedgehogs bottom should be well rounded not pinched in and triangular. It should not be wobbling from side to side like it is drunk. They do not sunbathe and should not be out during the day. They should also not have flies around them. All these different symptoms mean you need to act quickly. Put the hedgehog in deep sided box lined with newspaper, put an old towel or fleece in the box and wrap it around the hedgehog. Put a hot water bottle or plastic bottle filled with warm water (wrap this in a t. towel and put underneath the hedgehog.) Leave the hedgehog quiet and in the dark, it will not appreciate the children poking it or the dog barking. Then call for further help and advice. Our hedgehogs need all the help they can get, the latest figures are saying we are now down to 500,000 in the U.K that is an alarming 98.6% in 50 years. Figures suggest that 100,000 a year die on our roads so if you know of a particular black spot please inform the council who can put up hedgehog signs to warn motorists to slow down. You need to log how many hogs have died, the dates and location. This could mean extinction in 5 years 100,000 X 5 = 500,000.With Easter around the corner it is often when my phone begins to get busy, so here are some things to do or avoid; Put your dog on a lead when letting it out after dusk, switching an outside light on can also warn the hedgehog you are coming into the garden.

    

Check long grass and hedging before strimming and using a hedge trimmer

  

Cover drain holes

Make sure ponds have a shallow edge or a ramp so the hedgehog can get out Tie netting up at least 30cms from the ground Put sports nets away at night. Keep recycling out of the way until refuse collection day, squash tins, cut yoghurt pots, disposable coffee cups in half Do not use insecticides or slug pellets these kill other wildlife too. Pick up litter (hedgehogs get caught up in litter that has been thrown down or blown out of receptacles) Join the Facebook group Yate and Sodbury clean up and join in the action

You can help by becoming a Hedgehog Champion, www.hedgehogstreet.org.uk ask your neighbours to put holes in fences the size of a CD disk, maybe add a pond, a log pile, plant wild and native flowers, trees, shrubs and bushes. Maybe you have moved into new development and the gardens are rather sparse, why not make a hedgehog house? www.britishhedgehogs.org.uk/leaflets how to build a hedgehog house. If the build is still on going then ask the builders/planners to put holes in the fences when they erect them. Hedgehogs are on South Gloucestershire Council bio diversity list and a target species so hopefully the builders will comply especially as this will soon be new legislation. On the up side we have just finished the first phase of the new cage refurbishment at Hedgehog rescue South Gloucestershire, the Mayor visited to see why we needed to make the replacements. Yate Town Council have been generous with their grants, as have some other organisations and individuals. Richard from HVE completed the refurbishment on the 19th February and we are delighted with them. We are now desperately trying to raise the funds for the second phase and have just been told that we have been accepted for the blue token Tesco community fund from April until June. The boxes will be at The main Tesco in Yate shopping centre, Brimsham park and Station Rd. This will hopefully help us a long way to finishing the project. We took 393 hedgehogs in last year which is the most in one year, and we had 80 at any one time. We have a team of lovely dedicated volunteers and in the busy months it can take 4 of us to manage the cleaning, medicating, feeding etc of our little friends. This comes at a huge cost so donations are always welcome, it doesn’t have to be money not everyone can afford that but newspapers, unwanted cat/dog food, cat biscuits, straw, washing up liquid and washing tablets. For those wishing to donate more you can find links on the website: www.hedgehogrescue.info/donation Don’t forget you can log your hog on the hedgehog street website or Avon wildlife trust website. www.avonwildlifetrust.org.uk

Helen Brett-Reynolds, Head of Music, whose brainchild it was, thanked the Rotary Club of Yate and District and The Arts Society, Severn Valley (TASSV) for their donations which allowed 30 instruments to be purchased for Yate Academy. After just a few sessions the groups of string, woodwind and brass instruments already sounding amazing, such is the dedication of the staff and the enthusiasm of the students. The students, a good mix of boys and girls, chose which instrument they would like to learn. They are supported every Wednesday by Joe Windham and Fiona Thompson, musicians from South Gloucestershire Music Hub who visit the Academy to teach the students how to play. Helen went on to say how playing together has also had a beneficial impact on their other academic studies. The students themselves commented on how much they enjoy playing the instruments, are committed to the rehearsals and are encouraged by their parent to practise at home. Many have had no previous musical experience. Mariette Farrell, Chair of TASSV and Linda Griffith, Chair of Yate Rotary Community Services are delighted to have supported this initiative. “The opportunityof making music to broaden the experiences of these young people is essential. Who knows where it may lead? What is well known is the benefit of making music to the social and emotional well-being of every individual. This is especially important when the creative arts are vulnerable to being sidelined within schools. We congratulate the staff at Yate Academy for their foresight and dedication, and wish the orchestra every success for the future.”

The Pubs of Sodbury Part One One of my first articles for the Boundary Magazine was on this theme. That was 11 years ago so maybe it is time to have a second look and fill in with a little more detail. I am regularly asked why do we have so many pubs for such a small population? Well it all down to a number of factors. Back in the 11th century Sodbury was on a North South salt route from Droitwich, which was also a Pilgrims Way. East West it was on a route between Bristol and Oxford and it was on a Drover’s Way between South Wales and London. As time went by it was on many coaching routes and, most importantly, it was a significant market town for almost 800 years. All of these aspects brought travellers to the town who needed accommodation and stabling for horses, garaging for repair of coaches and, of course, a bit of light refreshment in the bars! Starting at Cow Mills, where there was the Cow Inn. This really served those coming to the mill. (Photo right) Moving towards Chipping Sodbury on the Parade there was the Crown Inn, which is now Hill House. Next up comes the Grapes – originally the Queen’s Head – which dates from the 1700’s or before. In Brook Street there was a beer house associated Trotman’s or Weare’s Mill. In 5 Horseshoe Lane we had the original Horse Shoe Inn. As it implies this was next to the Blacksmith Shop and must have provided refreshments when horses were being shoed. At the top of High Street, we have the new Horseshoe Inn. This is our newest tavern and is proving to be very popular. A little down the street we come to No 8 which was the King’s Arms up to the start of World War One. (Photo left) Across the street was the Mitre Inn, now The Madd Sandwich. (Photo right) Look down the alley and you will see the name “The Old Mitre” Next down the High Street we come the Police Station which, prior to1862, was the Duke William Inn. Right next door we have Old Grammar School (now Library etc) which, up to the mid/late 1700’s, was the Lamb Inn. Over the road we had the Bell Inn, (Photo left)and that goes way back to 1576. After a period as the British Legion Club and then as an Art Gallery,the Bell has gone back to hospitality as Brooks Bar. Today’s clientele is looking for something quite different, but all the pubs are kept busy with liquid refreshment and dining. I will look at Broad Street and up to Old Sodbury next month.

Community news & what’s on Carer Champions award scheme for hospitals Are you looking after someone who is in hospital? Or perhaps you know someone who is? Families, friends and neighbours often provide crucial care for someone who couldn’t manage without their help. You could be caring for a relative, partner or friend who is ill, frail, disabled or has mental health or substance misuse problems. If you care for someone, support is available at University Hospitals Bristol and North Bristol Trust. Hospital Carers Liaison Workers from Carers Support Centre are based at the BRI, Southmead and South Bristol Community Hospital. They provide help, support and advice to carers from the point of admission to discharge, as a carer and/or as a patient. Carers Support Centre recently launched a new Carer Champions award scheme to recognise the support given to carers by hospital staff. Carers Champions certificates are given to the wards and individuals who refer the most carers to them for support. At Southmead, the Stroke Rehabilitation Ward, Gate 9A, and Dementia Nurse Jayne Davies were presented with awards. At the BRI, the Geriatric Ward, A400, and Social Work Practitioner, Cat Stockham, gained awards. Awards were also given out at South Bristol Community Hospital to Ward 100 and Ward Manager, Alicia Cowan. Sam Radford, who works at Southmead Hospital for Carers Support Centre said: “I hope the scheme will help staff, carers and the public understand what help they are entitled to when they identify as a carer. I met a family and the daughter was supporting her mother. She didn’t want to identify as a carer but, after chatting with them, they both acknowledged that the line had been crossed between mother and daughter. The daughter was now her mother’s carer and her mother had recently accepted that her needs had changed, something she had been in denial about and had found hard to accept.” Judy Gowenlock, who works at the BRI for Carers Support Centre, added: “We couldn’t help carers looking after someone who is in hospital without the support we receive from individual staff members and the wards at the hospitals.” The charity Carers Support Centre helps carers by explaining hospital processes and acting as your advocate. They can communicate your needs to ward staff, attend meetings with you and support you to take a break from caring. They can also help you if you are both a carer and a patient, worried about how you will continue to be a carer whilst you are in hospital. If you are a carer who needs support in hospital, get in touch with Carers Support Centre. www.carerssupportcentre.org.uk

YACHT CLUB UNVEILS NEW ECO YACHT The Chipping Sodbury Yacht Club has unveiled its world beating new eco yacht, which has been designed by the Club’s Senior Marine Designer, Bruce Hose (pictured right), which the club hopes will go into service by 2022 when Bristol bans diesel vehicles. The eco yacht (pictured)incorporates the very latest technology, and at the forefront of this are solar powered sails, which will power the yacht either by sail, or by auxiliary electric motor via a high capacity battery. The masts will pivot, and lowered, as the yacht may have to continue its journey into Bristol docks underneath Cabot Circus and Broadmead, in the event of plans to demolish these shopping centres and reopen the River Frome being rejected by Bristol Council. Another innovation is for the yacht to have wheels, which may be required where river levels are too shallow, which may be the case if South Gloucestershire Council reject plans to deepen and widen the River Frome. Commodore Dave Pearce (pictured left) commented “I am excited that the new eco yacht is being unveiled in my year as Commodore and look forward to seeing the project move forward quickly under my watch” The Club Treasurer, Nick Tiffin (pictured below) said “I look forward to working with the Government on behalf of the club in securing the estimated £50 billion cost of deepening and widening the River Frome from Chipping Sodbury, through Frampton Cotterell and beyond , in moving the M32 and Tesco store 100 yards east, and in the demolition of Cabot Circus and Broadmead shopping Centres to facilitate the reopening of the River From into Bristol Docks”. The Club is also working on plans to build a number of quays to enable passengers to embark and disembark as the yacht makes its journey into Bristol, and will separately report on these in the near future. Bunny Groves, Secretary General, 1st April 2020.
