Welcome...

In this issue... to the March edition. At last Spring is nearly here. I don’t know about you but I love to see the green shoots start to come up in the garden, giving a sneak preview of the warmer weather to come (I hope!)

Talking of warmer weather we have another super travel article this month from Milford Travel Barbados. Sally and I have been there a few times as it has been the starting place for a couple of our cruises. We can highly recommend the rum and the lovely welcome you get from the friendly locals. This issue has a bit of an Arts theme to it. Meet the Locals features Forest Arts Director Helen Cundy, we also have the Annual New Milton Music Festival and from the New Forest Players their latest offering Quartet. If you have not been to Forest Arts you should try it. They have all kinds of entertainment on show from films, comedy and drama to classes and music. Something for everybody I reckon. Bugle has been entertained in a different way this month and not to his liking! Read what happened when his Cousin Toby came to stay. Please support your local businesses and if you do contact any business listed in the magazine please mention from where you got their name. You would be helping the magazine greatly.

Local History

Auberon Herbert Our community, through the ages, in Maps.

Driving along Ashley Road from the traffic lights in the centre of New Milton you will see on the right a large white building behind some trees. This is Ashley Arnewood. (photo below) It is now a nursing home but was once the home of a most remarkable man, the Honourable Auberon Herbert. He lived there from 1872 to 1886. Auberon Herbert (photo right) was the third son of the Earl of Carnarvon. He was born in Highclere in 1838 and educated at Eton and Oxford. In 1858 he purchased a commission in the army and served in India. On his return to England he returned to Oxford where he lectured in history and jurisprudence at St John’s College. He had a great love of adventure and also was a very compassionate man. He was a witness to the Prussian Danish

12

oa

war of 1864 where he was made a knight of the order of Dannebrog in recognition of his services in leaving the Danish lines to go out into no man’s land to rescue the wounded. Auberon also visited the United States and witnessed some of the battles of the civil war. He was present in France during the Franco Prussian war and was one of the first outsiders to be allowed into Paris after the city surrendered to the besieging Prussian forces. Auberon Herbert made several attempts to become an MP. He failed to be elected on the Isle of Wight and again in Berkshire. Finally he was elected in a bye-election as MP for Nottingham. He was a radical politician and within the first two weeks of entering parliament he was advocating that all state schools should be non religious. He also described the House of Lords as ‘a body wholly irresponsible’

er se call 01425 62 841 or e- ail ary

and urged the Commons to take action against the Lords ability to veto bills. His love of wildlife came to the fore when he was one of the leading MPs to support the 1872 Wild Birds Protection Act. As a young man Herbert had been a keen game sportsman. He gave this up and became a vegetarian as he objected to all forms of killing, including the slaughtering animals for food. Herbert believed that the law of equal freedom was the supreme moral law. He became an advocate of the philosophy of Herbert Spencer and promoted his own thoughts which became known as ‘voluntaryism’. In essence this was a belief that government should be limited to just defending private ownership and individual rights and not initiating force against the people. He called for a system funded by non-coerced

ri ce ublica o s co u


Corps but was shot down and killed during the closing stages of the battle of the Somme in 1916. He is commemorated on the New Milton war memorial.

contributions, in other words, voluntary taxation. Those who contributed to the government funds would be entitled to vote. Those who made no contribution could not. Herbert organised anti government protests in London, notably one in Hyde Park in opposition to an anticipated war between Britain and Russia. Many thinkers of the time were calling Auberon Herbert an anarchist but others disagreed. He was certainly a great crusader for liberty and equality. On leaving politics Herbert purchased, in 1873, Ashley Arnewood in Milton Parish and took up farming. (See map above) He worked hard to improve the standard of living for farm workers. Those lucky enough to work for Auberon were paid an extra two shillings a week above the normal wage. He also encouraged local farm

After the death of his wife in 1886, Auberon Herbert sold Ashley Arnewood and moved to premises in Burley known as ‘The Old House’. He continued in his eccentric ways, refusing to have a fire lit in his room and insisting on the windows being open. It was here in 1906 that he died and in accordance with his wishes he was buried in the grounds of his house.

workers to form a union to assist in their struggle for better conditions. For one week of the year he offered free meals to all people in the locality including Gypsies. When Mrs Girling and the religious sect known as ‘The Shakers’ were evicted from their house in Vaggs Lane Hordle, in a winters storm, Auberon Herbert took them in and gave them temporary shelter in one of his barns at Ashley Arnewood. In 1871 Auberon married Lady Florence, the daughter of the Earl of Copwer. They had four children. Sadly their eldest son died in childhood. Their second son, Auberon Thomas Herbert, inherited the title of Lord Lucas from his maternal uncle. He entered politics in the House of Lords and served as private secretary to the Secretary of State for War Richard Haldane. During the First World War he trained as a pilot in the Royal Flying

Auberon was a controversial figure in late Victorian life. He was an early champion for liberty and equality. He had some unconventional views on government but he was a supporter of the ordinary working people. It is little known, until now, that this man spent the latter part of his life in Milton Parish. Auberon Herbert’s name lives on in New Milton as the residents of Herbert Road will testify.

What are your Responsibilities as an Attorney?

Anyone who is aged 18 or over who has the mental ability to make decisions can arrange for someone else to make these decisions for them in the future. This legal authority is called “power of attorney”. The person who is given power of attorney is known as the “attorney” and must also be at least 18 years of age. There are different types of power of attorney. In this article I am going to mention enduring powers of attorney and lasting powers of attorney. An enduring power of attorney deals only with property and affairs which includes financial affairs. It is no longer possible to create an enduring power of attorney but one created before 1 October 2007 remains valid. There are 2 types of lasting powers of attorney one for personal welfare and one for property and affairs. Lasting powers of attorney can only be used by an attorney if they have been registered with the office of the public guardian. An enduring power of attorney created before 1 October 2007 can be used before registration with the office of the public

16

oa

guardian but it must be registered if the person making the enduring power of attorney (the donor) is losing or has lost their mental capacity. Either the donor or the attorney can apply to register a power of attorney. As an attorney you have a duty of care to the donor. You must carry out the donor’s instructions; you may not take advantage of your position nor benefit yourself; you must act in good faith; and respect confidentiality. Knowing whether a decision is in the best interest of the donor is difficult. Before making a decision for the donor check that the donor does lack capacity to make that decision himself. Could the decision be delayed until the donor recovers capacity? What are or were the donor’s feeling wishes, beliefs, values and other factors that he would consider if able. Does the power of attorney document set out any guidance for you from the donor? There is a general presumption in favour of following the donor’s wishes unless it is irrational, irresponsible or impracticable. Have you consulted any one

er se call 01425 62 841 or e- ail ary

named by the donor to be consulted; any person or carer interested in the donor’s welfare; or any other attorney named by the donor. Under a property and affairs power of attorney you must manage the donor’s finances in their best interests; you must keep them separate from your own; you must keep accounts of the donor’s assets, income, spending and outgoings. You can buy or sell property on the donor’s behalf if it is in their best interests. Contact the office of the public guardian if any sale is below market value; if you want to buy any property yourself; or if you want to give the property to someone else. As a personal welfare attorney you can make decisions about the donor’s daily routine, medical care, and living arrangements. You can only make these decisions if the donor has lost capacity to make them himself. If you would like any advice or help with powers of attorney then e mail enquiry@dixonstewart.com or telephone one of our offices.

Helen Cundy

Director Forest Arts Centre In this month’s ‘Meet the Locals’ article we catch up with Helen Cundy who is the current director of Forest Arts Centre which is based in Old Milton Road. Helen was born in Oxford and attended school there. Her father was from Dorset and family holidays would often bring them down to this part of country. Her school had high academic standards which put some considerable pressure on the students. Helen found that a way to escape this was through dance. She revelled in her after school dance classes and realised early on that she wanted to work in the arts. Helen attended Surrey University where she took a degree in dance. On graduating she was able to work at South Hill Park Arts Centre in Bracknell. Discovering that there were such places as arts centres was a revelation to Helen during her student days. To work in one was her ideal first job. Her work there included being the choreographer in a youth theatre project. She went on to work on other projects around the country including one for the Arts Team at Gateshead. This project included an intergenerational collaboration with older writers and deprived children. She found this work challenging but very rewarding. This really brought home to Helen how the arts can be life changing. Gateshead also introduced her to the Folk Music scene and she was involved in a number of projects for that genre of music.

er se call

Helen became the director of the Cranleigh Arts Centre in Surrey where she developed a wide programme of events and activities rooted in the community. She built up the arts centre to become a thriving establishment. Helen then went on to work for Surrey County Council arts team running residential music courses for groups of 200 or more children. This led onto even bigger events. Helen was the producer for two theatrical productions at the Royal Albert Hall involving over 2000 children. Special pieces of music had been written for these shows which also involved dance and puppets on stage. The productions played to packed audiences. It was here that Helen really appreciated having a good team working for her. The logistics of dealing with 2000 children were immense in terms of getting them to be at the right place at the right time. Helen then started to work freelance and took on a number of roles including a dance festival for Pavilion Dance in Bournemouth. She was also heavily involved in organising an event as part of the Olympic Torch relay ceremony in Guildford and another in Southwark.

In 2015 Helen became the director of the Forest Arts Centre in New Milton. She was attracted to the role as she felt that it would be a challenge and had great potential. She is seeking to develop more links between Forest Arts Centre and the community. She wants to focus on families andor getemore 01425 62 841 ailyoung ary

people involved. However this will not be to the exclusion of the older population. Helen wants to ensure that the Forest Arts Centre will have something for all ages. One area she is particularly interested in is the link between the arts and health, with such projects as dance for people with Parkinsons, for which she is fundraising. The Forest Arts Centre is a great asset in our town. As well as a full programme of classes and events there are rooms which can be hired for people wishing to put on their own events or productions. The cafe is now open Monday to Friday during the day and often in the evening. All are welcome. If you wish to contact Helen and her team they can be contacted on 01425 612393 or via e mail at forest.arts@hampshireculturaltru st.org.uk.

MARTIN LEWIS

Mortgages - find the cheapest deal By Martin Lewis @moneysavingexpert

The biggest single personal financial risk in 2017 is that mortgage rates will rise rapidly. This isn’t primarily about UK base rates, set by the bank of England, it’s far more about the City’s long term prediction of interest rates – which new cheap fixed and long term variable rate deals are set based upon. Mortgage rates are near all-time historic lows and have been for a couple of years, and we’ve got used to that. Yet there is a plausible chance that 2017 is the year that will change. We’ve already seen some cheap deals such as HSBC’s 0.99% two-year fix being pulled. The five-year swap rates have increased from 0.35% back in September to 0.9% now – and we’re already seeing longer fixes start to get more expensive on the back of this. Of course, there’s no certainty here. Yet UK rates are so cheap that even if things reversed and they dropped again, the likely gain to mortgage holders would be limited. But if they did rise, the cost could be huge. The savings available right now can be huge, like Kperat’s who emailed: "Fixed at 1.24% for 2 yrs, reduced term to 13 yrs without paying much more a month. Will be saving about £20,000 even after fees. Thanks." So, this is my clarion call for ALL mortgage holders, to check NOW if you’re on the cheapest deal, and, if not sort, it. Here's what to do to find your cheapest deal. How much could I save? If like many people, you’re on your lender’s standard variable rate (SVR) – the default rate most fixes and trackers revert to when the intro deal ends – then the savings can be huge. Most SVRs are at 4% or higher. Yet the cheapest two-year fix is just 1.2% (you’ll need a top credit score and it’s got a big fee). Five-year fixes start at around 1.8%. All, of course, depend on how much of your home’s value you’re borrowing. So, someone moving a £150,000 mortgage from 4% SVR to a two-year fix at 1.2% would save £4,000+ over two years, even after fees. Quickly find what deals are available For an easy benchmark of what’s available in your circumstances, start with a comparison site that

24

oa

includes all deals, including ‘direct only’, which aren’t offered by brokers. Full market comparisons include my own www.MoneySavingExpert.com/ mortgagebestbuys, and www.totallymoney.com’s mortgage tool. Finding a cheap deal isn’t the end – you need to get accepted The days when lenders would fling out deals to all and sundry are long gone. Getting accepted is now the challenge. There are two key elements to this: - Is your credit score good enough? Your credit history is a huge part of whether you'll be accepted for any type of credit, including a mortgage. So take precautions. Avoid any applications that leave a footprint on your file – such as credit cards, contract mobile phones or monthly car insurance – in the few months before applying for your mortgage. Never withdraw cash on credit cards or take payday loans. For full help on this, join my free Credit Club www.mse.me/ CreditClub, which gives your credit score, affordability score and tells you what needs improving. - Are the repayments affordable? For the past couple of years, lenders haven’t just checked if you can afford the monthly repayments at the current rate, but they also stress test affordability if rates were 6% or 7%. Crucially, this doesn’t only apply to new mortgages, it’s also for re-mortgages too (which is ridiculous and, on an aside, I am campaigning against this). So, if this is a problem, it’s important to reel in your spending months before applying. Lenders will want evidence of income, big bills, expenses and even eating out. Use a mortgage broker to match your situation to a top mortgage. The information about what different lenders are looking for isn’t available to the general public. But it’s something that most mortgage brokers have - and, of course, their job is to find you the best product. So, they’re a good way to work out what the best deal available to you is. Yet do ask if the broker will check all deals available to them and not just a panel of lenders. Also, check how

er se call 01425 62 841 or e- ail ary

ri ce ublica o s co u


much it will cost and use a qualified one. Some phone-only brokers such as www.LandC.co.uk are fee-free. If you want face-to-face help, ask friends for a local recommendation or find one via www.unbiased.co.uk or www.VouchedFor.com. Don’t ignore the fees The smaller your mortgage, the bigger the impact of fees. A good way to compare mortgages is to divide the fee across the discount or fixed period. So, a £1,200 fee on a two-year (i.e., 24-month) deal is £50 a month. Then add that to the monthly repayment. I designed a “Total Cost” tool that does this automatically for you within the www.MoneySavingExpert.com/mortgagebestbuys comparison. Fix or variable rate? A fix’s advantage is you get price and budgeting certainty that the rate won't move for a set time, whereas variable deals move with the UK interest rate (and sometimes just on the provider's whim). Generally, you pay a little more to fix, but not much. Ask yourself how much you think rates will

lease

e

o this

rise over the period. If safety's what’s important to you, err on the side of fixing, and fixing for longer. Right now, with fixed deals being outrageously cheap, it’s great time to do it. Got savings? They could get you a better mortgage For this, you need to find your current loan-tovalue (LTV) – the proportion of the value of your home you're borrowing, so £80k on a £100k property is 80% LTV. At every 5% LTV threshold, from 95% down to 60%, deals tend to get better, so a little extra can have a big impact on your rate. For example, if you've a £150,000 home, and want a £137,000 re-mortgage, that's a 91% LTV, and the top five-year fix is 3.98%. Yet use £2,000 of savings to reduce the borrowing, and you'd be at 90% LTV – where the top five-year fix is 2.54%, saving c. £1,100/year in payments.

Beautiful Barbados Barbados has so much to offer, it is hard to know where to begin! It is an island in the Caribbean Sea of around 166 square miles, an island crying out to be explored! People think of Barbados purely as an island of sea and sand, although it has this in abundance, there is much more to the island. The South and West Coasts of the island embrace the calm waters of the Caribbean Sea and the famous white soft powdery sand, the North coast is where the Caribbean meets the Atlantic and offers breath taking scenery and the East Coast with is spectacular craggy coastline and powerful Atlantic surf is a total contrast to its opposite neighbour. Inland is one of the islands “must see “opportunities is Harrisons Cave, an amazing limestone cave network where you travel deep beneath the earth experiencing the life of early explorers and reliving some of their adventures. You travel by tram and are guided by local experts. This is a truly memorable day out. Hiring a car in Barbados is the best way to see the island, you can visit historic Bridgetown, visit St Nicholas Abbey and make your way through the beautiful rolling countryside and sugar plantations to the quiet, spectacular North and East Coasts for their stunning views. Barbados offers a host of things for the traveller from sport (cricket is a big deal!), culture and

festivals, to amazing food and drink (try the local rum at one of the many rum shacks). A must try is the fish fry held every Friday in the village of Oistins where you will eat locally caught and prepared fish and chips while entertainment from reggae bands to ballroom music goes on around you! There is a whole host of accommodation on Barbados catering for all markets, be they families, friends or couples covering all budgets. The time change in Barbados is -5 hours on GMT and the flight time is approximately 7 ½ hours. There are direct flights to Barbados with both BA and Virgin and the island is easily combinable with other Caribbean islands if you wanted to do a two centre holiday as local airline Liat fly between them all. The temperature in Barbados is fairly stable throughout the year with averages of around 26/27 degrees centigrade. September to November are the wettest months but even during these months the amount of rain would not impact greatly on your holiday, rain comes in short sharp showers and the heat dries everything up very quickly!

Celebrity Interview Hannah Gordon talks to Tim Saunders Hannah Campbell Grant Gordon was born in Newhaven, Edinburgh in 1941. Blessed with such a well-known Scottish name, you could be forgiven for thinking she has an association with soup, whisky or indeed gin, but none of it. Hannah was only nine years old when her mother died of a heart attack and two years later after a long illness, her father died. She was sent to live with a bachelor uncle who sent her off to St. Dennis School for Girls, a boarding school in Edinburgh, now closed. She remained there until she was 18. Hannah always wanted to go to university but to do so required two lowers and three highers, equivalent to our O and A levels. Not liking science and failing math’s, scuppered her chances. She took elocution lessons and threw herself into theatre. “I took a chance and went to drama college and don’t regret a minute of it.” She trained at the Glasgow College of Music and Art and was awarded the James Bridie Gold Medal in 1962. Her early stage career included performances at the Repertory Theatre in Dundee and the Glasgow Citizens’ Theatre. “I used to do a huge number of plays spread over a few months but it was really enjoyable.” She made her first TV appearance in 1965 on Johnson Over Jordan and

guest starred in Dr. Who the same year. Hannah met her late husband, cinematographer Norman Warwick on the set of Spring and Port Wine in 1969. He died in 1984 and they have a son, Ben Warwick who is also an actor. She still has a slight Scottish burr even though she has lived in Surrey for over thirty years. “I came to London in the 1970s because the big work was here. I used to alternate between the television and the stage.” She is undeniably an extremely successful actress on both stage and screen. Her films include Watership Down and The Elephant Man. However, she is perhaps best known for her television roles in Upstairs, Downstairs, My Wife Next Door, Midsomer Murders and Watercolour Challenge (the Channel 4 art competition she hosted for three series in 1998). She regularly narrates for the radio but her true love is theatre. “Opening nights are fantastic – such a sensation. They can also be horrendous though – you want the floor to open up. A good audience is such a joy to work with but a poor one is a nightmare.” Not only does an actor or actress have to learn their lines off by heart they have to overcome certain pitfalls suggests Hannah. “For a performer, there are two dangers – not knowing your lines well enough and knowing them too well because you will make a mistake – one way or the other. You can be going on auto pilot and thinking what you’re going to be cooking for

er se call 01425 62 841 or e- ail ary

dinner and then suddenly make a mistake. I’m lucky it hasn’t really happened to me but I know actors who have slipped up. The great thing about this profession is that you never know what is going to happen next. One day the phone rings and it changes your whole life.” Hannah has played Mrs. Higgins in the Cameron Mackintosh production of My Fair Lady. “I alternated with Honor Blackman depending on where in the country the show was performing,” she recalls. “I’m not a great fan of long runs, boredom can set in but this was a lovely role and Cameron Mackintosh is a gent of the theatre – a great man to work with.” She has also played Ophelia in Hamlet, Desdemona in Othello and, Eliza in Pygmalion, George Bernard Shaw’s original 1913 play that My Fair Lady is based on. Tim Saunders is a local author, journalist and businessman. He meets celebrities, goes on holiday and road tests cars.

Driving and Vision SUPER SHARP FOCUS using SEIKO varifocal lenses We all know just how much traffic there is on the roads these days. So to drive safely it’s important to be able to see things clearly and to be able to anticipate any problems. Spectacle lens technology is constantly evolving so it’s essential that all of us get the right advice about which lenses are best for us. For the past few years, John Craven has been using SEIKO varifocal lenses, which allow the wearer to focus on all distances, from up close to the dashboard and then far away using the same pair of spectacles.

Because of new manufacturing technologies, SEIKO varifocal lenses provide a wider field of view – and thanks to a specially developed treatment called Super Resistant Coating applied to the lenses, more light passes through them. This avoids distracting reflections and gives sharper vision, particularly when driving at night.

At Howie & Tickner we offer a comprehensive and exciting range of eye wear - including Seiko Varifocal Lenses. Supported by our professional eye health and eye care.

Celebrated journalist and television presenter, John Craven OBE, talked about the importance of having clear, comfortable Call us vision whilst driving, n today for a t when interviewed n e m in a recent edition appoint ur yo of Framed. Just choose

Cousin Toby If there is one person in this world that Bugle loves it is our son Danny. They bonded from an early age, racing around Hengistbury Head and on the beach, rough and tumbling on the carpet and generally engaging in a mutual adoration society. Sadly, Danny lives near Blackpool and is only able to visit us about once a year, usually around Christmas time. In previous years, we have had a countdown on his kennel with 'sleeps til Danny' and general excitement reigns whenever we mention his name. This year, Danny came down with his girlfriend in mid December BUT he brought a dog with him! Danny and Amelia have re-homed a small cross breed terrier with the most incredible ears! He is quite a character and very sure of himself. I am afraid to say that this new addition was not welcomed with open paws by Bugle. Without doubt, our furry friend had his nose put out of joint having to share ‘his’ Danny!

oa

Toby proved to be the dominant dog. As you can see from the photo - he thought nothing of settling down on the sofa. As we are not used to a small dog, it was quite a culture shock for us - we are no longer used to a dog on the bed or on our chairs. Feeding them was a conundrum - Bugle was fairly laid back but Toby was more possessive so we had to separate them. When we took them out for walks they were fine - both did their own thing.

er se call 01425 62 841 or e- ail ary

After a time, it became obvious that they were just pretending that the other didn't exist! On the last day, I stayed at home with the two dogs and they were fine, just existing in their own worlds. There was however, one amusing moment - as we all know Bugle is quite large and fills a doorway - Toby quickly worked out that the if he needed to get past him, the best way to do it was go underneath!!

Pet Health Spring Capers … Have you ever considered how important play is to the well-being of your pet? Or how important it is to let your dog stop and sniff every 'peemail' on his favourite walk? To allow your cat to scratch his post or to give your rabbit the space to binky free? Of course you have, that is why you have chosen to read this article. Let me put it in a nut shell, in order for pets to lead a healthy balanced life it is as important to socialise and mentally stimulate them as it is to exercise those active bodies. Of course, there are many headings under which animal welfare needs are classified; suitable place to live, suitable diet, to be protected from injury and pain, protection from suffering and disease to mention just a few. For me for an animal to be able to exhibit normal behaviour patterns is as important as any of those above, thus removing some of the day to day stresses our pets experience. We all love to walk our dogs but have you considered what else that walk does other than keep those pounds off and those inches at bay? Dogs as we know have a keen sense of smell and this gives us a wide scope with which to mentally stimulate our canine friends. By allowing him to stop and sniff every ‘peemail’ you are allowing him to read who is in the neighbourhood, friend or foe! An important trait of wild dogs, you are allowing him to be himself...a dog. Take in different walks with different smells; different locations with different activities to get involved in; take a doggie companion along too and watch your dog have fun socialising. Happy in his activities, tongue lolling, tail wagging; don't you just feel happier yourself? Most companion animals are sentient creatures capable of experiencing positive feelings such as contentment. But they can also experience negative feelings such as pain and frustration. So, is mental stimulation not just as important as physical stimulation? Think about it... There are other numerous activities that we can do to stimulate our dogs grey matter. Training classes engage your pet’s attention with sit and stay, heel work, find and retrieve etc. The point is you are engaging your dog to 'think' about what he or she is being asked to do and that can be equally as

48

oa

satisfying as a romp in the countryside. You could try harnessing that keen sense of smell to brain train your pooch into happier companions. Try using treat dispensers where your dog must work at getting the treat out; hide their favourite toy and send your dog off to find it, a tit-bit being his reward; how about good old fashioned hide and seek? You will be amazed how engaged your dog can become with a little use of your own grey matter! Cats are no different. Although you may have to be a little more cunning in engaging your cat. Playing chase games replicates the desire for a cat to stalk, pounce and attack even if it is just a feather on a stick! Back legging the stuffing out of a bag filled with cat nip sends him into cat ecstasy. Encouraging your cat to simply be a cat improves his live immeasurably. Regularly getting active keeps kitty's waistline trim, his mind stimulated and improves the bond between owner and cat too. Rabbit owners too realise that their sociable pets soon become bored without stimulus and companionship. By enriching their environment to encourage rabbits to do what comes naturally (such as digging, nesting, burrowing) you may be rewarded with wonderful binky jumps; a sure sign of happiness in the world of the Lago. Physical and mental stimulation should go paw in paw. They will improve the wellbeing and health of your companion animal (and probably save your house and garden from total destruction). Owning a pet and spending time creatively with them can seriously improve our own mental health and can give us our sense of fun back too. Now that's what I call a double whammy!

Local History

Chewton Bunny

Our community, through the ages, in Maps.

If you look up ‘bunny’ in the dictionary, you get all kinds of possibilities, from the fluffytailed animal, through someone easily duped (of Australian origin), to someone of a specific type (e.g. the ‘gym bunny’), and those club hostesses I know nothing about and couldn’t possibly comment on. What you may not find is a bunny as in Chewton Bunny. So, our ‘bunny’ is a local name (New Forest area) of unknown origin for a valley, equating to the chine in Bournemouth and on the Isle of Wight, and glen in Scotland. We are lucky to have Chewton Bunny Nature Reserve (c 5.5 hectares), which is a Site of Nature Conservation Interest (SNCI), rich in woodland wildlife, and also including a number of Ancient Natural Woodland Indicator species. If you’re wondering, ‘ancient woodland’, in England and Wales, is land that’s been continuously wooded since at least 1600 (1750 in Scotland). There are over 200 plant species used as ‘indicators’ as

12

To ad er

these are more common in ancient than new woodland. My favoured place for accessing the Bunny is Mill Lane. At the bottom of the lane a signpost directs us either left (north) for the Lymington Road, or right (south) to the sea. I usually head right, a sucker for the sea. Heading back towards its source, the brook babbles under the Christchurch Road, where at the north end of the Bunny the Brook passes under what was

apparently the first ever reinforced-concrete bridge in England (1900-01), the Chewton Bunny road bridge, which I have still to properly investigate. Note to self. The brook continues north past the Chewton Glen Hotel and Farm before heading under Walkford Road and continuing towards Beckley Bridge, close to the Sammy Miller Motorcycle Museum, and beyond.

Following the Bunny to the sea is rewarded with its sides covered in broadleaved woodland and flowers, with the freshwater stream providing background accompaniment. There are two paths (upper and lower) with steps connecting, and sightings of that other bunny, plus the occasional grey squirrel. You might glimpse a nuthatch or woodpecker (among 40-odd bird species) and if you see a wood anemone in spring (‘Anemone nemorosa’) se call: 01425 629841 or e-mail gary@princepublica ons.co.ukyou’ve


much beloved of 18th century smugglers, its wooded, narrow confines offering a convenient, covert route for hauling contraband inland from the sea. There was also, handily, an area of quicksand at its foot, which only the most knowledgeable (or foolhardy) of locals would attempt to cross, especially at night. It seems it was to the mill they were headed, goods (spirits, tea, tobacco, lace) being offloaded here until they could be dispersed around the Forest.

Marie & Pierre Curie pictured in their lab, c1904 done really well. It’s one of those indicator species. Take a bow.

We very quickly arrive at ‘Mill House’ (photo below left) , now a private residence, but once a working mill, which used a waterwheel in the Walkford Brook to mill grain until the first decade of the 20th century (the earliest records of a mill here are for

1250). Once owned by the extravagantly named Dorothy Clutterbuck (1880-1951) of the New Forest coven of witches, the mill also hosted the famous scientist Marie Curie (1867-1934), the first woman to win a Nobel Prize (Physics, 1903), later winning a second (Chemistry, 1911). She convalesced here in 1912, following an operation. She stayed with another eminent, though lesser-known scientist today, Hertha Ayrton (1854-1923), who was awarded the Hughes Medal by the Royal Society for groundbreaking work on ripples in sand and water. No doubt Hertha found the proximity of beach and sea to her liking. Chewton Bunny was also

Emerging from the Bunny, with the brook part-culverted, and the sea ahead, the welcome sight of ‘The Cliffhanger’ (Photo below) can soon be glimpsed to the right, the café and restaurant that was built in 2007, and a nice place to head for refreshments after an invigorating walk. Chewton Bunny features in Steve Roberts’ first book, ‘Lesser Known Christchurch’, published in August 2015, by Dorset book specialist Roving Press.

Lemon & Passion Fruit Mousse

This is really easy and very delicious You will need a mixing bowl, small saucepan, large saucepan, an electric whisk, grater and a wooden spoon First grate the lemons into a small bowl and put to one side. Next squeeze the lemon juice into the small saucepan - this will be easier as you have grated them - and add the jelly to warm gently till dissolved. Put the cream and cheeses into the mixing bowl with the icing sugar and whisk till thick Slowly add most of the passion fruit to the jelly mix as this will cool it before you add to the cream mix. Then mix the two together with the grated lemons and pour into a bowl to set.

1/2 pint double cream 1 tub mascarpone cheese 1 tub cream cheese 1 lemon jelly 1 bottle of passion fruit sauce 2 lemons 3 tablespoons icing sugar

Berry coulis You can to save time and money by making a large batch so buy a big bag of frozen summer fruits and mix it with 6oz of caster sugar and bring gently to the boil. Simmer for about 5 minutes - don't boil too quickly or you will burn the sugar. When cool blend up with a hand blender and pop into the fridge. Then all you have to do is pour a spoonful over the bowl or plate and then scoop with a warm serving spoon and sort of roll to create a large quenelle or two for each plate. Drizzle a little of the passion fruit juice over and serve with a biscuit if you want a crunch as well, most shops do lovely dessert biscuits. The coulis you don't use pop into a freezer bag and lay it as flat as you can into the freezer to use for ice cream or meringues. When it is frozen flat it is easy to break off what you want and saves lots of time. This is a big favourite and great after a spicy meal.

HIGHCLIFFE Highcliffe CHIROPODY CLINIC Chiropody and NEW MILTON Clinic FOOT CLINIC Answer allall your answers your pressing foot questions

“Ye need suffer no more! Come and see us at the Foot Clinic !!” Looking After Your Loved Ones Feet A lot of us live a fair distance from our parents these days and even if we don’t, once they are starting to have problems with personal care it is important to keep an eye on their feet, as they are often overlooked. Feet are an area of the body most of the very elderly keep firmly tucked away in socks and slippers never seen by friends or family until there happens to be a problem. Quite often we receive calls from horrified sons or daughters who have at last caught a glimpse of their parent’s feet and are thoroughly disturbed by what they’ve seen! It is one of the most neglected areas of the body and there can be devastating consequences if problems are not intercepted quickly enough. Sometimes the thought of peeling the socks off our nearest and dearest to have a peak is an avenue we’d rather not explore. But if a relative is struggling with personal care it is as well to have a quick check every month just to make sure all is well. Particular problems are the obvious overgrown/ thickened nails, nails but also look for any signs of infection such as redness or swelling (we can lose sensation in our feet as we age and often a developing problem that should warn us by

pressing foot questions

hurting, doesn’t). Also look for excess callus build up or corns as these can develop into ulcers if the skin breaks down underneath. Check heels as well as they are prone to pressure sores or cracking that may become infected. Here is a classic example of the right heel that had not been kept an eye on in the home where the patient was residing. Simply keeping the heels elevated can prevent such nasties making an appearance. Hygiene is also very important – so checking between the tootsies and underneath the feet to make sure they are gleaming clean is a must….pretty, pretty please! Prevention is always better than cure and once a problem has developed it may take a very long time to resolve with regular redressing, antibiotics and general debilitation.

New Forest National Park News Pioneering archaeologists up for national award of 92,000 hectares (125,000 football pitches). Lawrence Shaw, Heritage Mapping and Data Officer for the New Forest National Park Authority, said: ‘The creation of the New Forest in 1079 produced a unique situation where archaeological sites have been almost frozen in time, mostly free from pressures such as intensive modern farming techniques and urban development.

Ovenu

Lawrence Shaw, Lidar A high-tech approach used to identify over 3,000 archaeological sites in the New Forest is one of the archaeological innovations of the last 50 years. The New Forest was the first National Park in the country to have its entire landscape surveyed by Lidar, which stands for Light Detection and Ranging technology. Now this technique has been nominated in Current Archaeology magazine’s Archaeology Awards 2017. Lidar is one of the Archaeological Innovations of the Last 50 Years, with the New Forest National Park Authority’s heritage mapping project identified as the best example. A public vote is open online until February to crown the winner. The National Park team’s use of Lidar involves beaming harmless lasers down from light aircraft to form a 3D map lease eUnlike o this of the landscape.

conventional aerial photography, this innovative approach allows experts to see below trees and shrubs to identify previously unrecorded features.

Since 2010, this has seen the project record and protect thousands of sites, including significant finds such as prehistoric field systems, an Iron Age hill fort and World War II bomb test sites. The project is funded by the New Forest Higher Level Stewardship (HLS) Scheme, a 10-year agreement with Natural England worth £19m. The scheme is held by the Verderers of the New Forest and managed by them in partnership with the Forestry Commission and the New Forest National Park Authority. Through the heritage mapping project and other initiatives, the survey has mapped the National Park and surrounding communities - an area the size

‘As a result, Lidar has enabled us to find fantastically well preserved sites that have been undisturbed for hundreds, if not thousands of years. We have been able to peel back the layers of the New Forest’s history and see how it has been shaped by human activity from the Bronze Age all the way through to World War II. We are now seven years into a 10 year scheme and we are still discovering and learning a huge amount, while also ensuring these sites are preserved for years to come.’ To cast your vote for Lidar and the New Forest heritage mapping project visit www.archaeology.co.uk/vote.

All New Audi Q2 Tim Barnes-Clay carwriteups.co.uk First impressions when approaching the new Audi Q2 are good. Like all Audis, it manages to stand out, even if it doesn’t try anything spectacular design-wise. In the more daring ‘Vegas Yellow’, it makes quite a visual impact though, and is unmistakeably Audi in appearance. The large grill and muscular body are complimented by a sloping roof line and contrast C-pillar which – in S-Line trim at least – is nicely offset in metallic silver. Sadly, on the smallest alloy wheels it looks puny, so bigger is better there. The interior is more of the same, being almost identical to that which you’d find in the A3 hatchback. That’s no bad thing though, as Audi makes some of the most pleasant interior spaces on the market today, and feels decidedly upmarket if it’s kitted out with a range of technology options, such as the virtual cockpit. We tested the Audi Q2 in 150PS 1.4-litre petrol guise. It provides plenty enough power for all types of road, being capable of overtaking on motorways and Aroads, yet remaining suitably quiet when pottering through towns and villages. If your annual mileage is quite low, this is a fine engine to go for, as you’re unlikely to need anything more than this. While the engine is quiet, the S-Tronic automatic gearbox is a little jumpy at low speeds, and tends to put too much torque through the wheels when trying to move off. This results in some minor wheelspin. The S-Tronic unit has never quite been up to the high level of BMW’s eight-speed unit, but it is

lease

e

o this

far from a bad gearbox, and, when up to speed, works quickly and seamlessly. Our petrol test car was the S-Line, fitted with sports suspension and larger alloy wheels, and we found it to be slightly too firm for our liking. Being a ‘Q’, you get into it expecting a smooth ride, but you get something more like a firm hatchback than a compact SUV. We suspect Audi’s excellent seating helps offset this a little. If the trade-off was entertaining cornering and impressive dynamics, we’d be content, but it isn’t exactly fun to drive either. The steering is rather numb and it doesn’t feel particularly settled going quicker around corners, though it doesn’t feel out of its comfort zone either. Audi was keen to point out that it doesn’t skimp on technology with the new Q2; it uses the same tech in the fresh compact SUV as it does in its higher-end products, like the TT sports car or Q7 SUV. The stunning virtual cockpit is an option once again, and you can also get such goodies, such as adaptive cruise control, heated seats, a power operated boot, and Audi’s parking assistance system. The problem is, almost these luxuries cost extra. Audi has made a big deal about the new Q2 starting at under £20,000, yet it also points out that it expects only 10 per cent of people to buy the

a a i e whe co tac

lowest ‘SE’ trim level. The petrol model we tested came in at £5 over £34,000, and, even for a test car, that’s an astonishing amount of money. Look to spend between £25,000 and £30,000 and you’re probably on the right track with the new Audi Q2. It’s a high-quality product and looks great, but it doesn’t inspire us to spend more on it than a normal Audi A3, and the Q3 SUV isn’t far off price-wise. It doesn’t matter one bit what we think, because wealthy people love something a little bit different with a respected badge on its nose. It might not be perfect, but it will sell, and sell well. The new Q2 is going to be another Audi success.

crops it is better to sow just a few and then sow again in a few weeks time to avoid having too many ready to harvest all at once. Salad crops such as lettuce will bolt if left too long, and other vegetables which may have a short harvesting period can be enjoyed for much longer if you save the seed and sow a few in succession every few weeks.

on your

PLOT

Getting the Upper hand Spring should really be on it’s way by the end of this month and there’ll be plenty of jobs to keep you busy on your plot. There’s nothing quite like sowing seeds and the thrill of watching those first tiny seedlings appearing just a week or two later. Weather permitting the soil should be warm enough to be sowing outdoors in March. Your new seedlings will need all the help that you can give them if they are to flourish so don’t forget the weeding and pest control too!

Jobs for March Prepare beds for sowing by raking level when the soil is dry enough. Get a supply of containers and fill with compost ready for sowing (supermarket plastic trays containers are handy to reuse for this!) Make sure you have all the seeds you need and sort them into the order that you’ll sow them in. Plant first early potatoes later in the month. Keep on top of the weeding and pest control. Sow carrots, peas, parsnips, lettuce and radishes.

e

Hopefully March should see the weather settling down and Spring truly starting to emerge. Most seed packets give you some guidelines as to which month/or months are best to sow in but personally I think that it’d be a lot more helpful if they gave a little information about the temperature required, not to mention just how long germination is likely to take. Soil temperatures of at least 6º are needed for most seeds - if you don’t want to guess at this you can get a soil thermometer to check. Don’t forget that by using products such as fleece, or cloches, over your beds you can raise the temperature. Some seeds, such as parsnips, are notoriously slow to germinate taking up to 3 weeks for seedlings to appear - a good idea with slow starters like these is to sow quick growing crops such as radishes on either side of the row. This will help mark the rows out until your parsnips appear and the radishes will quickly be grown and ready to harvest.

As the soil warms up for your new crops so it also warms up nicely for the weeds about now! For many people part of the attraction of growing your own is eating chemical free produce and organic methods of pest control will therefore be preferred. Little and often is best - take a quick walk around the veg patch each morning and hand pick any emerging weeds. Hoeing also works well and if you are careful not to let weeds set seed you’ll avoid a long-term problem. Of course the situation isn’t helped by the fact that your patch is likely to have large amounts of bare soil on it between widely spaced rows at this time of year. Some crops, such as potatoes will obligingly grow to ultimately block out the light and deter weeks, but if you’re really having problems then think about putting down a thick, organic, mulch to cover the bare soil.

Take note also of the depth that the different seeds should be sown at - too shallow and they’ll either blow away or be eaten by the birds, too deep and you may bury them alive! Try to space seeds evenly, though if you sow too many you can thin out the weaker seedlings after they appear. Do remember that with many

a a i e whe co tac

Slugs will also emerge to attack your young seedlings there’s no end of organic ways to do battle from hand picking at night and beer traps to watering in nematodes. Strike early and gain the upper hand!
