Local History

Hale Gardens Lawn Tennis Club 90th Anniversary

Milton Parish has always had a range of sporting activates for local residents and visitors to enjoy. In addition to football, rugby, cricket and bowls the town has two tennis clubs. In 2018 Hale Gardens Lawn Tennis Club celebrates its 90th anniversary. The club is located off of Milton Grove to the south of the town. It is one of the oldest sporting clubs in New Milton. It is situated on land that was once part of the Ashley Arnewood Estate. In 1923 a Mr Arthur Winch who was a farmer and builder bought twenty two acres of land from the estate for the sum of ÂŁ250. In 1928 a small piece of this plot was purchased by Misters Ede, White, Craig and Bagley who created the Grove Tennis Club. ÂŁ5.00 was payable to the Forestry commission for forest rights. It is therefore entirely possible that the club may still hold these rights to turn cattle out onto the forest! In 1933 a Commander Hodson sold another parcel of land to the tennis club and the first club house was built on this plot. 1937 saw a change of name for the club. It became the Hale Gardens Lawn Tennis Club under its first president Phyllis Ridley. The club, at this time, boasted three grass courts and one hard court. Surprisingly in World War Two the club soldiered on, run by a Mr Alfred Wheat with little support. He was the secretary, treasurer and the groundsman.

The First Tennis Club House Built in 1933.

After 1945 the club struggled financially during the post war austerity period. Nets were used until they were worn out. The rules of wearing white tennis dress were rigidly adhered to, even to the extent of one member making a white dress out of a bed sheet! In 1947 money was raised from the members to buy out the existing freeholders. The club was at last owned by the membership. It remains so to this day.

Prize Giving 1960s.

It is a popular club, with regular competitions for much coveted trophies. In the 1950s another hard court was added. One grass court was converted to a shale surface. In order to keep costs down this work was done by the membership but sadly it was not completed to a satisfactory standard and bad bounces were usual on this court. It was later converted to an all weather surface. One of the long term members of the club records that there was a rivalry with the New Milton Tennis Club which used the hard courts at the north end of the recreation ground. They had a member who played for Hampshire and two very talented female players. As a result they were tough opposition.


The Club Today

Other improvements have seen a total renovation of the clubhouse and the installation of artificial pro turf grass courts.

Wareham’s cycle shop – view from the upstairs window looking at Station Road. Late 1950s

Before the cattle grid was put in place at the Rising Sun it was not unusual for forest ponies to wander into the New Milton, down as far as Barton Common. There were strict instructions to close the gates to each tennis court. On several occasions this was forgotten and the ponies made an entrance. This image shows ponies in Station Road circa 1960s. The photo is taken from the 1st floor of Wareham’s Cycle shop now the Anglo Asian shop beside Barclays bank. In order to reduce costs the grass courts were converted to shale surfaces in the 1970s. The grass courts had been very expensive to maintain. A few years later they were converted into all weather surfaces. In addition the wooden

club house was demolished and replaced with a purpose built brick building which was opened in 1974. Junior tournaments under the auspices of the Lawn Tennis Association really started to get the name of the club known in the tennis world. The first tournament was in 1981 and this event is now a regional fixture for our area. The club continues to be affiliated to the Lawn Tennis Association and in May of this year participated in the Great British Tennis weekend. Improvements to the club continued with the installation of flood lighting in 1989. This allowed play to continue in the winter evenings.

The club has an excellent coaching team led by head coach James Lilley and assisted by guest coach Ray Burningham. James runs junior and adult coaching sessions aimed at beginners through to the more serious player. In addition he also provides cardio tennis sessions set to music. This work out has proved to be very popular. Hale Gardens Lawn Tennis Club goes from strength to strength. If you are interested in becoming a member or would like to learn to play contact the club via their website:. www.halegardenstennis.net

Should we allow Divorce on demand?

As the law stands the only ground for divorce is the irretrievable breakdown of the marriage which must be evidenced by one of five facts: - The other party’s adultery - The other party’s unreasonable behaviour - Two years desertion - Two years separation with consent - Five years separation This means that, if a couple wishes to divorce but they have not yet been separated for a minimum period of two years, one of them has to state that the other has either committed adultery or behaved unreasonably, and furthermore provide details of the adultery or unreasonable behaviour in the Divorce Petition.

with the breakdown of their relationships in a dignified, constructive and non-confrontational way especially if they have children. Couples are encouraged to try and reach an agreement with regard to their children and property and financial matters and formal applications to the court should be viewed as a last resort. It can be very difficult to deal with these matters in an amicable way if you have read an adultery or unreasonable behaviour Petition issued by your partner and the relationship can quickly deteriorate.

The law on divorce is 50 years old. It is outdated, it is costly for couples and it fuels acrimony, hostility and pain and damages the The emphasis in family law possibility of long-term is that parties should deal relationships in the

interest of children. Scotland leads the way in that in Scotland you now only have to wait for one year to obtain a divorce if the other party consents. In 2016 there were 107,000 divorces in England and Wales and 60% of them involved a Petition for adultery or unreasonable behaviour. Many people support the institution of marriage but believe that the law should be reformed to scrap the fault based divorce laws. This would enable people to take a very neutral stance that their marriage was over and reach an agreement on that basis.

Neil Larner Oakhaven Hospice This month in ‘Meet the Locals’ we meet Neil Larner a local man, who has been working for many years in our community and is making a real difference to people’s lives in the south of the New Forest. Neil was born in Sway to a mum who had been a village resident all her life. With his older sister he went to St Luke’s School in Sway, Highcliffe School and Brockenhurst College. Neil decided that further education was not for him and was persuaded by his mother to consider going into the care industry.

learning support worker at Hill House School in Lymington. This is a boarding school for children with autism, profound learning difficulties and behavioural problems. Neil was at first At the age of 18 Neil went for uncertain if this role was really what he wanted to do. an interview to work as a To his surprise he was offered the job with just 48 hours notice. After the first day he knew this was the right career choice. He really enjoyed making a difference to the lives of the young people. Being just eighteen himself he was able to empathise with the youths in many respects. Neil was part of a team of twenty members of staff. There were three teams in all. He really enjoyed the camaraderie in the teams, the ‘can do’ attitude to problem solving and the that new team 1 support 18 5 6 98 received. 1 - Within u members

two years of joining Neil was promoted to assistant team manager. This new role gave Neil a greater sense of responsibility. He relished the challenges of helping to manage the team and on occasion was the lead manager. After four years Neil felt that he needed to take time out to travel. He knew that he wanted to make the care industry his full time career, but at the age of 22 and still living at home if he wanted to go and see the world this was a good time to do it before greater responsibilities landed on his shoulders. Neil resigned from Hill House, a brave decision, and for six and a half months travelled around South East Asia and the Pacific. He had an amazing time visiting, Thailand, Malaysia, ubAustralia, New u

Zealand Fiji and Canada. On his return to the New Forest Neil initially worked on the bank staff at Hill House before being offered a full time job at a children’s home on Hayling Island. This was a challenging role in which he gave one to one help to abused children with mental and emotional difficulties. This intense role required Neil to work every other week and live in the home. Neil by now had a girlfriend. They were living together first in Everton and later in Barton on Sea. Something had to give if he wanted to see more of his new partner. Neil was offered a job as a manager of a care home in Hedge End working with adults who were on the autistic spectrum and had learning difficulties. At least he could now commute from home to work. This was his first appointment as a manager. Soon afterwards, working for the same company, he set up a brand new care home for 5 young adults on the Autistic

In 2015 Neil was offered the post of care service manager for Oakhaven Care Agency. This is a sister organisation of Oakhaven Hospice Trust. The company provides care to a wide range of people in the south west of the New Forest. They are not necessarily terminally ill or elderly. All of the profits generated by the care agency are ploughed back into the Oakhaven Hospice. The care is provided for people in their own homes. Neil has about twenty staff working for him. They come from a variety of backgrounds. The role is very popular with parents who need to take time out during the day to look after their children. The carers also get opportunities to work in Oakhaven Hospice alongside the registered nurses working there. This can be very rewarding giving terminally ill people a good quality of life towards the end of their illness. Neil’s next project

is to expand Oakhaven Care Agency. They are looking to open up in the Totton area. However they are always looking out for staff in the south western part of the New Forest. If you would like to help to care for people in the local community then to find out more look at the Oakhaven Care Agency website at www.oakhavencare.co.uk It is people like Neil and all the carers in our community who are working away making a real positive difference to the lives of those who are less fortunate than the rest of us or who need a hand to help them in everyday life. We need more people like Neil.

Italy Having just returned from a wonderful trip to Italy I felt it only right to share it with you in this article. My first stop was Verona, within 3 hours of leaving Southampton Airport I was sitting in the beautiful square overlooking the ancient Arena having my first authentic pizza! The city has a wonderful relaxed feel about it and everything is within easy walking distance of the station. There is a bus from the airport to the station which only costs 6 euros and makes life very easy.

large and stunning! Florence also houses the Ponte Vecchio, the Uffizi Gallery and countless other sights.

After a day of visiting the sights of Verona which include the famous Romeo and Juliet balcony as well as the amphitheatre, we caught the train out to Venice. An easy and enjoyable 1 hour journey which deposited us right in the centre of Venice, a mere 5 minute walk from the Rialto Bridge. The day was spent wandering around the small island and despite St Mark’s Square and the surrounding areas being busy; small pockets of the city were still deserted, quiet and beautiful.

We were lucky enough to have

been recommended a fabulous roof top bar to watch the sun go down over the city which was pretty spectacular.

The following day, Florence beckoned. Once again, catching the train into the city it was a mere 5 minute walk to the city centre and the Duomo loomed

1

We made our way to Pisa the following morning (not alone!) to see the Leaning Tower. It was about a 20 minute walk from the station but easy to find and well worth it. There are many other stunning churches and cathedrals to visit in Pisa and would make an easy base to visit the area as flying into Pisa is very convenient 5 6London. 98 1 from

After our couple of enjoyable days based in Florence, we then moved on to Rome. Again, an incredibly easy 1hr40 minutes by train to Rome Termini. Rome was busy and during these periods it is prudent to pre book any tours with skip the line entry. We arrived on the first Sunday of the month and although the Vatican Museum and Sistine Chapel were closed, we took advantage of the Colosseum being free and just paid for a tour which included Palatine Hill and the Forum which were fascinating. By the end of the week, I felt like I had well and truly scratched the surface of the Northern Italian cities but there is so much more to explore. If you would like further information or are interested in travelling to Italy, please give me a call at Milford Travel on 01590 644899, email me on enquiries@milford-travel.com or pop in and see me at 78 High Street, Milford ub on Sea. u

‘All the Light we Cannot See’ by Anthony Doerr

‘You’ by Caroline Kepnes This is not for the feint hearted. Joe Goldberg outwardly seems like an average guy who works in a bookstore but after a visit from a beautiful, aspiring writer, Guinevere Beck, he obsesses about the encounter and starts obsessing over her and trawling through her social media accounts. Written from his point of view, this is a disturbing but totally absorbing insight into the fractured mind of a stalker. The prose is rapid, candid and visceral, so much so that it’s hard to believe it’s a male point of view written by a woman. This was Kepne’s debut novel and released in 2015 but it’s still hovering around the top twenty bestsellers. If you need a reason to cut back on tweets and Facebook updates, this book will make you think twice before you post any updates. Published by Simon and Schuster ISBN 1471137376

This is another novel from 2015 that just keeps gaining popularity. During World War II a blind, French girl, Marie-Laure is forced to flee Paris for Saint-Malo hiding a jewel from her father’s museum. At the same time we learn about a German orphan Werner Pfennig, naturally adept at fixing radios and enlisted to use his skills to fight and find the French Resistance. Doerr interweaves the two characters lives with skill and attention to detail. His prose is beautifully crafted, drawing you into the past with flair and aplomb. This book took ten years to write and every page shows that not a word was wasted, Doerr rightfully received the Pulitzer Prize for this tome. A beautiful novel that deserves your full attention. Published by Fourth Estate ISBN 0008138303 ‘The Dry’ by Jane Harper Set in Australia amongst the worst drought in a century, Aaron Falk, a Federal Agent returns to his hometown after twenty years to attend the funeral of his old friend Luke. The circumstances of Luke’s death are so dire that Falk is pressured to investigate. He left town all that time ago because he was accused of murder and Luke was his staunch alibi, but now Luke is dead and somebody knows the truth about what happened all those years ago. This novel is beautifully set against the tangible discomfort of the heat and dirt of Australian farmland. This thriller has won many awards and Harper has already sold the rights to Reese Witherspoon, lets hope the film/TV production stays set Down Under. Published by Abacus ISBN 0349142114

What’s on the Telly tonight? Many years ago I had a cat who liked to watch the snooker. It was in the days when the TV stood on a stand in the corner of the room: when Pot Black (that dates me!) was on the cat would not only sit and watch but also stand up on her hind legs and try to catch the moving balls with her paws! During the latter years of Sam’s life (our previous dog) he acquired ‘grumpy old dog syndrome’ and would bark at the circling dogs used by the BBC between programmes. By this time, the TV had been mounted on the wall above the fireplace. In the summer it was not too bad, but in the winter when the fire was lit I was always worried he would end up burning himself as not only would he bark but also try and jump up at the TV. By

far and away the worst programme to watch was Crufts, he would spend the whole time barking at the dogs and in the end we gave up watching. Bugle is of course, much more laid back. He likes to watch the golf and the cricket with Gary on Sky Sports (or so I am told) but apart from that is fairly ambivalent about the TV. Occasionally, he will get a bit excited if a doorbell rings on set; he mistakes it for ours and gets very annoyed when

we don’t follow him to the front door to see who it is! Sometimes, the only way we can get him to calm down is by opening the door and proving there is no-one there. He takes his job as guard dog very seriously! However, there was one event recently which caught his attention - we had friends around to watch the Royal Wedding and one of our guests was sitting on the floor with Bugle and sent us this photo. I think it says it all!

Local History

St Catherine’s Hill

Climbing a hill, I usually think of St Catherine of Alexandria, a Christian saint martyred in the early 4th century AD by a pagan Roman emperor. A princess, scholar and teenage Christian, it was her fate to convert hundreds to her religion, then face martyrdom for her faith, aged 18. The story goes that she was to be executed on a spiked ‘breaking wheel’ (hence the ‘Catherine Wheel’), but on her touch the instrument shattered, so she was beheaded instead. Angels carried her corpse to the highest mountain next to Mount Sinai, which is today’s Mount St Catherine. This explains why we have so many St Catherine’s hills.

The views from up there are spectacular. Aptly perhaps, given the St Catherine story, human use of our hill certainly dates to those self-same Romans, who used the prominence as a lookout area and signal station with a beacon sending messages along the coast. Human use of the hill may well go further back, even to Prehistoric times. There are certainly several Bronze Age burial mounds. There was a chapel atop the hill (St Catherine’s Chapel), which was established as a Christian place of worship within the boundaries of the old Roman fort (such as it was). Hills attract fables like jam tarts attract wasps and our hill has that delightful one about stones being removed from up top to down below like some statement from ‘up above’ that the next church should (would) be constructed where today’s Priory is. The chapel on the hill lost its raison d’être and ended up disappearing during the Dissolution of Henry VIII (that grumpy, gout-ridden bloke).

St Catherine by Carlo Crivelli, c1470 (The Yorck Project)

There’s a St Catherine’s Hill south-east of Winchester and we have another in Christchurch. It is the highest part of our borough, rising to 53 metres, or 174 feet, above sea-level.

It has also been a military training area since at least the Napoleonic wars, with troops learning how to keep their heads down in trenches during WW1, training again during WW2, and later, during the Cold War, another bunch potentially keeping their heads down in an atomic blast observer post. There was also industry and it is still possible to see the legacy of 19th century sand and gravel-quarrying, which left a landscape looking ‘otherworldly’

The hill has had other purposes, some of them not that edifying. Being remote from the town that expanded around its new church, the hill made a convenient ‘isolation ward’ for those suffering from potentially contagious diseases.

19th century quarry workings

There was also once a railway line down here too, the old Ringwood, Christchurch and Bournemouth Railway, which saw its last farepaying passenger in 1935. You can still walk the old track-bed (Dudmoor Lane) in the direction of the former Hurn Station, today’s Avon Causeway inn.

The old Ringwood, Christchurch and Bournemouth Railway line


There’s various ways of ascending the hill, but one of the easiest is the gently-climbing St Catherine’s Hill Lane, where I started my walk in ‘Lesser Known Christchurch’. You’ll came to an OS trig-point and orientation stone, which was erected in 2014. On a clear day you can see the Needles. .

The hill has had The Friends of St Catherine’s Hill batting for it for the last decade and their biennial ‘History on the Hill’ day in September has now become a popular local event (the most recent one having been held in 2017). .

Radio masts

Trig point and orientation stone

View from the hill, over the River Avon and towards the Isle of Wight

There’s also two reservoirs on the plateau, which come as a surprise to the uninitiated. The first was built in 1895, the second in 1963. Each reservoir, of two million gallons capacity, provides drinking water to Christchurch and beyond. There are also radio masts that may assist your socalled ‘smartphone’ in getting a decent signal. I’m not a fan (of the smartphone). Give me a decent book any day.

And then there’s flora and fauna. St Catherine’s Hill is an internationally-important wildlifehaven, one of our remaining heathland outposts, which is so important when some 85% of local heathland has already been lost. It provides a home to protected and rare wildlife, including the rarest of our reptiles: the adder, smooth snake and sand lizard. There is common land below the hill too, with Town Common, Cowards Marsh and Ogber the largest chunk of common land remaining in the borough. Commoners still have grazing rights here. Plaques on benches recall Donald Street (1940-81), a renowned local herpetologist: Town Common Nature Reserve is dedicated to him.

“Ye need suffer no more! Summer Fun with well Shod Feet We thought during these hazy crazy days of summer we should proffer some guidance as to the most suitable festival/party/beach/summer evening soiree footwear attire. We ourselves shall be attending a number of summer festivities to which we shall be paying special attention to our footwear as we know that this can make or break the enjoyment or your ankle even, of such an event. Festival Going – the trusted welly boot is usually the footwear of choice should the weather look inclement or gladiator sandals if the sun is shining although we don’t really recommend these as the tan lines can be atrocious. Sailing Day/Evening – with all that scooting round the deck and acting as winch monkeys and tying on of fenders we would naturally recommend comfortable deck shoes, designed for just such a purpose. Moving through to the evening deck shoes also seem to be the footwear of choice for these ruddy types and we can’t disagree that these shoes are probably the best way forward after the sun dips over the yard arm and the gin begins to Beach Polo – Manolo Blahniks or Jimmy Choos or Laboutins will no doubt be parading the Sandbanks shores this summer, although not for the faint hearted, especially after a few glasses of Bolly. We will be sticking to our super trendy fit-flops selfadorned with Swarovski crystals. We won’t be looking foolish twisting our ankle and ending up

pressing foot questions face first in the sand!

BBQ’s & Al Fresco Dining – Obviously the designated cook should be wearing heat-proof shoes – just like your titanium weave armour. If seated, flip-flops are very popular but we never recommend them due to the lack of support, cushioning and risk of trips and falls – especially after a few carafes of wine or jugs of Pimms. Weddings – We recommended having two pairs – one pair for the Ceremony that will look fabulous in the photos, the other pair should be kept for the raucous – and often perilous – dancing at the Reception. Ladies – do beware of being trodden on by a fellow reveller’s stilettos! We have seen many a hanging toenail after such merriment. Gardening – Many an injury has been sustained whilst preparing gardens for public viewings for open garden season. Toes have been chopped clean off, bones broken, garden forks impaled into feet – so steel toe cap boots or sturdy walking boots may be the best option for those who really like to get stuck in. We certainly would advise against open-toed sandals as we’ve seen many a nasty splinter from the rose prunings. And one final word of warning always remember to put sun cream on your feet!!

Tiramisu

This is a recipe that I have been given from a friend, most recipes are either partly borrowed or an amalgamation so never be worried to change a recipe to suit your tastes... You will need 2 bowls, an electric whisk, a deep dish to soak the biscuits and another one to use for the dessert Whisk the egg whites until stiff and put to one side, then make the coffee and leave to cool. Whisk the yolks with the sugar till stiff then slowly add the mascarpone cheese. Then fold the egg whites slowly into the mixture being careful not to knock out the air.

4eggs separated 75g Caster sugar 450g mascarpone cheese 4 tablespoons amaretto 100ml strong espresso

Add the booze to the coffee and soak the biscuits a few at a time. It is a little like dunking your biscuit in your tea, too much and it will drop to the bottom, too little and it is still crunchy. Fill the bottom of the tray and then spoon half of the eggs and cheese mixture over and dust the cocoa powder over the top. Add another layer the same way and finish with the cocoa powder - chill for at least 6 hours and preferably overnight.

16-24 sponge fingers

This dessert has raw eggs and as such be aware of anyone who might be vulnerable. Keep chilled before serving and for those who don't have caffeine perhaps try with decaf aged espresso.

When it comes to getting the job done, there aren’t many pick-ups more hardcore than the Isuzu DMax – a muscular all-rounder that just works. Master of all trades and the perfect blend of rugged capability, whether offroad or load-lugging; paired with performance and comfort. The D-Max is masculine enough on its own. But marry it with Icelandic vehicle modifier, Arctic Trucks, and it gets an extra dose of testosterone.

The standard Isuzu suspension has been given a seeing to as well, with superior Fox Performance dampers made to endure the toughest impacts. The additional ground clearance means you won’t ground it out on any offtarmac obstructions you’re likely to find in Britain. What’s more, the approach and departure angles enable it to confront almost perpendicular inclines without throwing a wobbly.

then that’s a long way from the intended market. What does amaze is the AT35’s talent to achieve and sustain motorway speeds without much tyre roar. The ride is very easygoing, too, although it does become quite wallowy the quicker you go, due to the balloon-like tyres. Hypothetically, you could use this special version of the D-Max to do the daily commute, but that would almost be an insult to its mudplugging abilities.

Plant of the month

Hydrangea July is when Hydrangea blooms are at their best. A vigorous and hardy plant with numerous varieties, blooms with vibrant colours ranging from white, pink, purple and blue. Many varieties, such as the mop-head, have the unique ability to change colour, adapting to soil type and environment. The colour change is due to the soil pH - those with pink or blue flowers tend to be blue in acid soil and pink in alkaline conditions. White flowers remain white regardless of soil pH. Hydrangeas can be planted in borders or containers but wherever it is planted it will need copious watering. The name roughly translated means “water barrel� alluding to the cupshaped flowers and need for hydration. Try to use rainwater to water them since mains water can affect bloom colour.
