Welcome...

In this issue... to the August edition.

Traditionally July is quite a busy month and this past month was no exception particularly with the extra events laid on by the Lion’s Club of New Milton to celebrate their centenary. These have now come to a close and Sally, Bugle and I went along to as many as we could. (Bugle couldn’t manage the Peddle Car Grand Prix - too hot!) The Lions did a fabulous job and are now having a well earned rest. Someone who probably would have done well in the Grand Prix is Bron Burrell - a rally star of the 1970’s who has recently been resurrecting her glory days. She is a delightful lady and the subject of Meet the Locals this month. I met local author Michael Forrester at one of the Lions events recently and he very kindly submitted an article for us - If it wasn’t for that dog! I hope you enjoy it a s much as I have. On the book theme we have a new feature this month which is a book review from local resident Emma Russell. I’m sure this will become another monthly favourite for you all. 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

Rosa Lewis – The Celebrity Chef of Her Day?

It was in 1907 that the top cook in Britain, maybe even in the world came to Highcliffe for three weeks. Rosa Lewis, the ‘Duchess of Jermyn Street’, came to Highcliffe Castle to cook for the Kaiser. She had earned her high reputation by going to grand houses with her team of girls and providing splendid, one-off dinners. These were usually in or near London, so she could prepare at least some of the food at her Cavendish Hotel kitchen.

Her story was the inspiration for the BBC television series ‘the Duchess of Duke Street’ The Kaiser had been on a state visit to Windsor and thought that it would be nice to live the life of an English country gentleman for a while. It was a holiday for him after the state visit. Highcliffe Castle was suggested, as at this time it was recognised as one of the show piece stately homes of England.

However good the Castle was as temporary accommodation, it did not have the services of a cook that could cater for this incoming royal entourage. The Cavendish hotel in London was patronised by King Edward, and Rosa Lewis, the Head Cook was already a celebrity with a reputation as the best cook in England. It was therefore natural that the King should suggest that she should pack up and move to Highcliffe. Perhaps it was a coincidence that the owner of Highcliffe Castle, Major-General the Hon. Edward James Montagu Stuart Wortley, should also suggest Rosa as the obvious cook, but then he did also know of her cooking prowess. Rosa moved into the Castle and took over the domestic arrangements in very cramped conditions.


Not surprisingly, with a household of over ninety Germans, supplies of quality food soon ran out locally and Rosa had to travel to London each evening on the Royal train from Hinton, to purchase new supplies. She bought from Covent Garden and Jackson’s of Piccadilly, transferring the produce back from the station to the Castle by Daimler. It is believed that during the three weeks of the visit they consumed: 10,060lbs beef and mutton 42 sides of bacon 1,050 chickens 5,000 eggs 2,100lbs apples 1,870lbs pears 300 game pies 2,000 loaves of bread 84 hams Those three weeks in 1907 still figure amongst the high spots of the Castle’s history. Even now visitors will recite the recollections of their parents or other family members about the visit of the Kaiser.

Selling Your Home

You have received an offer from someone to buy your home that you find acceptable. You have so much to do before you move. Spare a thought for the legal process that now follows.. To reduce delays in the sale it is probably best to have chosen which solicitor you would like to use for the sale process at the same time as you choose your estate agent. After you have a formal offer you will complete a number of questionnaires about the property. Firstly there is a property information form which includes information on boundaries, disputes, building works, and utilities. Secondly there is a fittings and contents form on which you add the items within the property that you are selling with it, for example the curtains, carpets and blinds. If you are selling a leasehold property then there are additional forms for completion by you and the freeholder or the management company. The forms you complete are sent out by your solicitor to the buyer’s solicitor with a contract, a copy of the legal title from the land registry (if your title is registered) and an Energy Performance Certificate. The contract pack will also include any planning permissions or

building regulation consents you have for the property and any other relevant documents referred to on the questionnaires above. When the buyer’s solicitor receives this paperwork he will pass copies of it to your buyer; he will order searches on your property and he will raise enquiries with your solicitor. Your solicitor will pass a copy of these enquiries to you for your replies. It is important that the answers you give on the questionnaires above and in your replies to these enquiries are accurate as if they are not your buyer may be able to claim compensation from you after he has completed his purchase. Your buyer will at the same time be arranging to have a survey carried out on the property you are selling and may be awaiting a mortgage offer. The surveyor may raise some enquiries which again the buyer’s solicitor will raise with your solicitor. Once the buyer’s solicitor is happy with the contract documents, the results of his searches, the survey, any offer of mortgage and the replies to enquiries he will report to the buyer and ask him to sign his part of the contract. Your solicitor will then send you your part of the contract to sign. When you and the buyer have

-

signed your parts of the contract and are happy with all the paperwork then the solicitors will confirm that they are in a position to exchange contracts. Exchange of contracts is the time when your buyer becomes committed to buy from you and you become committed to sell. At any time before exchange of contracts you or the buyer can withdraw from the sale without any legal consequences. If you have a related purchase then your solicitor will be following the procedure above in relation to your purchase so that your purchase can be tied in with your sale. The solicitors acting for all parties in the chain will be doing this too and it is only when all parties in the chain have reached the positon above that an exchange can take place. On exchange of contracts a moving date is fixed. All parties in the chain must agree to this moving date before an exchange of contracts can take place. There is still work to be done by you and your solicitor after exchange of contracts takes place but at least you know now that you will be moving. If you want any help in the legal aspects of moving home then contact us on enquiry@dixonstewart.com for a free quotation.

Bronwyn Burrell

1970’s Rally Driver This month, in ‘Meet the Locals’ we catch up with Bronwyn Burrell, a rally driver from the 1970s now living in Milford on Sea. Bron was born in Auckland, New Zealand in 1944. She moved with her mother and brother to the United Kingdom in 1956 and settled down to a life which entirely revolved around horses. Bron wanted to teach people to ride and by the time she was a teenager she had obtained the British Horse Society Instructors certificate. Then, in 1961, Bron learnt to drive. Her first lessons were on a dual control Morris Minor. On the first lesson Bron asked her instructor how fast she could go. He had to tell her to slow down as learners were not supposed to be doing over 70mph. Bron was hooked on driving and speed. Bron wanted to learn how to drive properly and took lessons at Brands Hatch. In 1964 she was tutored by F1 legend Jim Clark. They drove the Brands Hatch circuit in a racing Lotus Cortina. On one occasion Jim Clarke broke the lap record for that car on the circuit whilst Bron was in the passenger seat. It was done so smoothly and without any Top Gear theatrics that Bron had not realised the record had been broken until the lap time was shown to her. At this time Bron wanted to be a F3 racer. However, a serious crash during

practising for a race put her in hospital. The doctors thought she had broken her neck but it turned out to be severe whiplash. By 1967 Bron had bought an ex works Hillman Imp having obtained her International Race and Rally Licence that same year. She was entering up to five rallies a month and by the middle of the year had won the Southern Counties championship. Bron then started entering International rallies. In 1970 Bron with two other female co drivers attempted to take on the London to Mexico rally in a Maxi. The car was nicknamed ‘Puff the Magic Dragon’ (because she needed a dragon to make her fly). The motoring press followed their every move. A disastrous service of their vehicle in Argentina put them out of the rally but it was a huge adventure for them. In 1970 Bron was invited to be ‘Miss Castrol’ and did a photo shoot. Bron continued to race until 1972 when family matters forced her to return to New Zealand. After six months in that country she returned to England settling in Lymington with her partner Rob. Bron was invited to form a company doing Interior Landscaping with DoubleH Nursery in Gore Road. This involved creating interior displays for offices and other commercial premises. She ended up securing contracts with companies such as Zurich, Ordnance Survey and Hampshire County Council. Life took over and her rally career took a back seat. Bron and Rob moved to Milford on Sea and in retirement she took up golf at the Barton on Sea club where 5 8she is now the - Ladies

handicap secretary. In 2013, Bron was put in touch with Tina, one of her co drivers on the Mexico Rally. Although the lead driver, Tish, had passed away, a reunion with Tina and the team mechanics was organised. To Bron’s utter amazement she found that her beloved Maxi, ‘Puff’ was still running. The owner, Trevor Ripley asked Bron to drive it again in vintage parades. In July 2016 Bron bought ‘Puff’ and started the long process of restoration. She regained her rally driving licence with a view to getting ‘Puff’ back into competition. The Maxi now has a reconditioned engine and crucially a better fuel management system. In April of this year Bron took part in the Lisbon Rally and came third in class. In July she took part in the Goodwood Festival of Speed. Bron has been given a free entry in the Peking to Shanghai rally later this year. Sheis in desperate need of sponsorship to help pay the costs of shipping ‘Puff’ out to China. If any readers are able to assist, Bron can be contacted via her stepdaughter on 07780 700 226 : email sarah@addzestmkg.co.uk Aged 72 Bron has no intention of slowing down!

Entertaining to Impress – Review of Cookery Class at The Kitchen, Chewton Glen On arrival at The Chewton Glen, I found myself in the midst of a beautiful quintessentially English scene, meandering along a lane surrounded by banks of primroses and bluebells. The Kitchen itself is a clean, modern building with oak beams and stylish glass and was like stepping into a different world, of professional chefs and fine dining, luxury and style. Rob Cottam, the Head Chef Tutor has an impressive CV having worked with icons such as Mary Berry, Antonio Carluccio and of course James Martin. There is no ceremony with Rob, he provided a warm and personal welcome as we all drank coffee, munching into warm pastries and studying the recipe on our ipads. ‘There’s going to be a test after,’ he commented. We all looked alarmed but there wasn’t really – Rob was great at making everything relaxed and light hearted. The purpose built area complete with individual cooking stations was like

culinary heaven, each of us having our very own mini kitchen. Every piece of equipment was state of the art, smooth induction hobs and modern ovens all digitally controlled. The work surface was so heat tolerant that Rob informed us we could use a blow torch on it – not that we did of course. Even the extraction unit was built in to the worktop, rising impressively from nowhere at the touch of a button. This is high class cooking with minimum fuss and maximum enjoyment. Rob demonstrated each course at his central station, whilst we sat entranced round him – able to chip in and ask questions, it is all perfectly relaxed and informal. Rob himself is a genius, a rare combination of talented chef and inspirational teacher, interspersing his teaching and demonstrations with entertaining snippets about celebrity chefs, deconstructing complicated techniques to create easily achievable results. His tips on making food more ‘cheffy’ and clever short

cuts for less stressful entertaining were invaluable. Each time we returned to our workstation, the kitchen fairy a.k.a. the lovely Rachel had miraculously cleared our areas, new dishes and equipment placed ready for the next course. It really was fool proof, which made the experience particularly enjoyable. The ingredients were fresh and exciting being locally sourced and in season, the delicious honey for the panna cotta was provided from beehives in the nearest field. Rob proudly showed us the beautiful Victorian greenhouse full of fresh herbs, beetroot in little pots, beautifully planted rows of purple sprouting and chard. The Course was a wonderful experience, an escape from the ordinary to the extraordinary, helping me to fall in love with cooking again after being stuck in the rut of making the same old favourites. The Course list is comprehensive including Gluten Free, Food for the Family, Nutritious and Delicious….the only problem is deciding which course to do next…..

What lies beneath… The annual celebration of the sea with national ‘Marine Weeks’ from 29th July – 13th August is a chance for us to all reflect about what the sea means to us. Living in Dorset means most of us are a stone’s throw away from the beautiful beach, with many of us spending our summer swimming in it, walking along it and admiring it from near or afar. For something that’s such a big part of our lives in Dorset, many of us know very little about the underwater world which lies beneath the waves. Not unlike our neighbourhoods on land, the sea has communities, families and homes which are surviving and reproducing every day; the difference is that we can’t always see this world easily, which makes it hard to understand, and appreciate. In 2013, Dorset had three Marine Conservation Zones

(MCZ’s) designated including Poole Rocks MCZ, the South Dorset MCZ and Chesil Beach & Stennis Ledges MCZ, providing protection for the species living there. The charm and charisma of the fascinating marine wildlife which will benefit from this protection should not be underestimated in favour of their land-based counterparts. Cuttlefish, for example, are intelligent animals and masters of deception, deploying secret ‘weapons’ with the cunning of James Bond; squirting enemies in a cloud of black ink, before making their escape, and trapping prey with lightning-fast tentacles. The black bream which flock to the Poole Rocks MCZ each spring protect their nests to the death and spend weeks creating the perfect nests for thousands of their eggs to hatch.

Ovenu Wildlife of the sea has some amazing stories and characters, from the bizarre looking tompot

Tompot blenny © Julie Hatcher blenny, the European lobsters’ eyes popping out from between the crevices, to the iconic dolphins who sometimes venture into our world as we marvel at their speed and agility, jumping in and out of the water. There are things we can all do to learn about marine wildlife, and also help it. A partnership project led by DWT, Southern IFCA, the NEFS, MCS, Seasearch and 7 Tenths Ecology Ltd has seen the creation of a fantastic website about Poole Rocks MCZ, complete with high quality video and images, to depict life beneath the sea. Visit www.poolerocksmcz.uk to find out more. Another threat faced by marine life is marine litter which is hugely damaging to marine habitats, and wildlife that ingest it. You can help by taking part in the #2minutebeachclean the next time you visit a Dorset beach.

IceIce-Cream In our family, a glimmer of sunshine is an excuse for an ice-cream, sometimes we will have one even if the weather is poor just because we are ‘on holiday’. I am sure that many readers will recall childhood trips to the seaside when the rain swept across the skies obliterating the view- so we sat in the car looking out over the beach eating a Mr Whippy 99!

and so whilst we sit and eat, he gazes at us, never taking his eyes off the prize! Passers by think he is obedient, but we know better!

My Father takes this one step further and buys Bugle his own small coneas you can see from the photograph this goes down very well. We try different flavours and over the years he has happily consumed chocolate, As we have a very good coffee, salted caramel, source of ice cream on the mint chocolate chip, seafront at Barton, we ginger, raspberry and rum usually take Bugle with us and raisin to mention a for the walk. From a few. All have gone down well and so it never young puppy, he became occurred to us that he accustomed to finishing would be picky. the last bit of cone for us When doggy ice cream became available, we did buy him one, but it didn't seem to be a hit however it was chicken flavoured! Who would eat that?!! Last time we went into Lymington with Bugle, we stopped on the cobbles and selected a lemon sorbet and a mango flavoured cornet. I duly offered 5 8Bugle the- last half

of the lemon sorbet cornet and to our amazement, he sniffed, licked and turned away with a curled lip. We tried again but he was definitely not interested. Gary then offered the mango flavour - once again this was looked upon with disgust and no amount of persuasion would make him try it. So now we know he does not like meat or fruit flavours, so bring back the chocolate or salted caramel - doggy heaven!!

‘The Girlfriend’ by Michelle Frances A thrilling debut novel about a mother, a son, his girlfriend and the consequences of a lie told in desperation. The dynamics of the females in this relationship are twisted, a kind of domestic darkness played out on a believable backdrop of upper class Kensington and council house Croydon. A chilling account that will make you value your relationships with your in-laws, the fast pace and compelling drama will keep you reading until the wee hours

‘Into the Water’ by Paula Hawkins For those of you that enjoyed Hawkins’ debut novel ‘The Girl on the Train’ this is another bestseller bound to be transferred to the big screen. ‘Into the Water’ is also a psychological thriller centred on the death of a woman but the range of diverse characters leads you to examine relationships more than individuals.

‘Wonder’ by R.J Palacio I’d recommend reading this before seeing the blockbuster movie starring Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson, due for release in December. The book has been a hit with children and adults alike.

The author’s style dislocates the reader, using different characters perspectives to relay half-truths and unreliable memories. Hawkins makes you work at figuring the truth of the story, throwing you off balance in a narrative flow full of the fascinating undercurrents and rip -tides of a small-town community.

5

The story is told from the perspective of Auggie Pullman, a boy born with a facial disfigurement who attends school for the first time. Palacio tugs on the heartstrings as Auggie encounters ignorance, intolerance and bullying and moments of joy, humour and enlightenment. It’s a great book to read with older children and one that raises issues and teaches compassion.

Highcliffe Foot Clinic “Ye need suffer no more! Come and see us at Highcliffe Chiropody Clinic !!” A wart by any other name is a Verruca if on the foot – but on the hand (or any other anatomical area) is a wart. These nasty little blighters are caused by the Human Papilloma Virus and sub-types thereof. Verrucae may appear as single, multiple or mosaic lesions and can be stubborn and be in situ for months or even years. There is no one single treatment that guarantees resolution – but we can certainly give them a jolly good kick up the backside to help them on their way. Most children and adults will have the pleasure of a wart or verruca as a pet lesion at some point in their lives. There are lots of myths and legends surrounding them…here are a few… Myth – People mainly catch them from swimming pools. There is very little evidence to support this, just a tiny abrasion can give the virus a way to sneak on in. Myth – They appear quickly. No, infact they can lie undetected in the skin for up to eight months before they magically appear. Myth – The Irish Folklore Compilation (1937-1938) recommended rubbing a wet stone on them every morning to dispense with them Treatments in the past have included using banana peel, slices of fresh garlic, cider vinegar, lemon juice, hypnosis or the ever popular rubbing with a snail. Here is one such documented treatment from the 16th Century:

answers all your pressing foot questions

“What be these bubbles with strange blackness? These be the cast of witches noses, verrucae be thy name! If such strangeness come upon Ye – then hold Ye forth until the first full moon! Then make Ye haste to yonder farmer. Acquire Ye a portion of beef (if Ye averse to slaughter and prefer thy tuberous remedy – thee must acquire a potato). Betwixt and tween your remedy, rub upon thy verrucerous bubble and bury under light of full moon at crossroads. As thy meat or tuberosity may wither, so shall thy unwanted growth. “ Here are our Top Tips: 1. To be a verruca or not to be a verruca – that is the question. All too often we see patients who have been diagnosed with Corns that are in fact verrucae and vice versa! Best confirmation of diagnosis – see your friendly Podiatrist for a check. 2. We recommend clear nail varnish – a couple of coats of this applied daily – allow one coat to dry and then immediately apply another - will keep the area water-tight and help prevent the virus from spreading. 3. Whichever treatment you select (we can Acid, Freeze or Needle them) – do not leave too long a gap between appointments – your Podiatrist will recommend your treatment review times.

PLOT Hoarding

If all has gone to plan (that’s a big if!) then August should be a very satisfying month on your plot, with your hard work being repaid by ample harvests of a good range of fruit and veg.

It’s hard to remain excited when you’ve had courgette at every meal for a week, and marvellous though raspberries are there is a limit to just how many you can eat at once. Take a bit of time to store your harvest and you can be enjoying home grown right through the winter. Jobs for August:Water regularly - try to water either in the evening or early mornings. If you are growing main crop potatoes, watch out for signs of blight. Brown patches on the tops and edges of leaves are usually a first sign. Pinch out the tops of runner bean stems that are outgrowing their supports. Keep harvesting those courgettes! Sow turnips and oriental salad plants such as Pak Choi and Chinese Cabbage Strawberry runners that were potted up in June to produce new plants can be planted out now.

The reality tends to be that the excitement of seeing your crops grow and ripen is initially followed by much enjoyment of the first fruits of your labour which can soon be replaced by a panic stricken ‘What the heck do I do with all these’! Certain crops (courgettes and tomatoes spring to mind) can almost guarantee this sequence of events! Sharing with friends and neighbours is great but very often they will have a glut of exactly the same thing at just the same time. What is called for are some simple ideas for storing and preserving your produce. It may be a long time before you are harvesting fresh peas or raspberries again but that doesn’t mean that you can’t be enjoying your home grown produce throughout the winter - it just takes a little planning and now is the time to do it. Onions (and garlic) that have been lifted and left to dry can be plaited and hung in a cool, dry place. Net bags, or tights, also work if you don’t fancy plaiting. Potatoes can be stored in boxes or paper sacks in a dark, dry building but you should check them regularly, removing any that show signs of rotting.

A good size freezer is a real boon for making the most of your produce. Blanching and then freezing works for loads of vegetables. Key to success is to cool quickly after blanching so have a bowl of cold water at the ready and don’t forget to label what you are freezing! Another option, and one that can work well for all those tomatoes, is to find a good recipe that you can cook, freeze and use later (how about a wonderful pasta sauce with your own tomatoes and home grown basil?). Even ‘difficult to freeze’ veg such as courgettes can either be incorporated into a sauce, or blanched, frozen and then added to a stew at a later date. Cooking and freezing can work well for fruit too - apple or rhubarb are good stewed and frozen all ready for use in a crumble or pie. If you have a truly wonderful fruit crop then why not arm yourself with a good recipe book and get started on some jam making? It’ll be delicious on your toast in the morning, and what better gift than a pot of homemade raspberry jam? It’s amazing how many books there are that tell you how to grow your fruit and veg, but how little information there is on just how to store it all! One wonderful little book, that deals with just this question is ‘How to store your garden produce’ by Piers Warren. It’s packed with information about how to store just about anything and a great addition to any gardeners library. Happy harvesting!

Asian Slaw

This is a wonderful change from the usual mayonnaise based coleslaw, you will need: A large mixing bowl, a chopping board and a sharp knife. It will feed 4 to 8 servings over two days. Mix all the liquid ingredients in the bowl and add the sesame seeds. De-seed the peppers and peel the carrots; thinly slice the red and white cabbage leaving out the core, and add to the bowl.

Half a white cabbage Half a red cabbage 2 red peppers, the long ones are sweeter 2 red onions Half a bag of mange tout 4 large carrots 4 fluid oz vegetable oil 2tablespoons of sesame oil 4 tablespoons of rice wine vinegar 2 tablespoons of liquid honey Salt / pepper 2tablespoons of toasted sesame seeds, or toast them yourself but beware they brown quickly.

Slice the peppers, onions, mange tout (on the angle) and add to the cabbage. Grate the carrots and pop on top. Gently mix the ingredients cover and leave in the fridge for at least 3 hours. It’s great with all cooked and BBQ meat and good for 3 days if kept in the fridge. This can be done in a machine but the pieces of vegetable will all look the same and so you lose the aesthetic home made look. So go slow and carefully with a sharp knife for the best result.

Local History

A brief history of Great Ballard House

Great Ballard House located off of Fernhill Lane is the home of Ballard School. This building has a very interesting history as although for most of its life it has been a school it has also been a family home and a military headquarters. The land originally belonged to Winchester College as part of the Fernhill Estate. This land was leased by the Reverend Thomas Beckley one time Mayor of Lymington and also Mayor of Christchurch. In 1874 The College put the estate up for sale and it was purchased by a Mr H.H. Kennard. He lived with his family in Fernhill Manor and sold off parcels of land to other interested parties.

The area known as Great Ballard was acquired by a wealthy American heiress, Miss Genevieve Eads. Her adopted father, James Buchanan Eads was a renowned American structural engineer. On his death he left $1,000,000 to be shared between Genevieve and her sisters. In 1865 she married a prosperous merchant named John Arnold Ubsdell 2nd. The Ubsdells originated from Hampshire. John had been born in Winchester and the family spent time in both the USA and England. Genevieve and John Ubsdell had three sons. John Arnold Ubsdell 3rd, James Eads Ubsdell and Thurlow Richardson Ubsdell.

The children were all educated in this country reinforcing the British links of the family. In addition to the areas of Great Ballard and Little Ballard Genevieve had rights over land in what is now Kennard Road, New Milton. She had three large houses built. Idlewild, Brooklyn and Grey Gables. Sadly only Grey Gables survives today. The Ubsdells moved into Brooklyn whilst Great Ballard House was being constructed. Work on Great Ballard House commenced in 1904. The architect was Sydney KelwayPope of Southampton.

Great Ballard under construction

The builders were A. Wright and son. The total cost of the build would be valued today at over ÂŁ1,000,000. The design was heavily influenced by the Arts and Crafts architect C.F.A. Voysey. A good example of this influence is the conical porch at the main entrance way and the bronze studded front door. Inside, the house is wonderful mixture of art nouveau and Arts and Crafts style. The fireplaces are by the famous Teale company whose products are identified by their duck motif. A lot of the door furniture and stained glass windows are still in place and have the most wonderful colours.


Great Ballard fireplace.

The house is described as having a lounge hall, three reception rooms, a billiard room, eight principle bedrooms, with attached dressing rooms, five secondary bedrooms, and five servants bedrooms. In addition the house had four bath rooms, central heating, mains water, a lodge, two cottages, a garage and stabling all set in about fifty seven acres. Genevieve’s husband, John Ubsdell died in 1909. Genevieve continued to live on in Great Ballard where she was described as ‘living on her own means’. The advent of the First World War changed life in Britain irrevocably. The period of the English country house was at an end. By 1915 Genevieve Ubsdell had rented Great Ballard to a Mrs Wood and by 1918 was living in the Lodge house at the end of the drive.

Genevieve attempted to sell the estate in 1918 but was only successful in disposing of the contents. She tried again in 1922 but it failed to reach the asking price. In 1924 The Ubsdell family leased the building and the grounds to Great Ballard School. The main house and outbuildings were slowly converted to make them more suited to that of an educational premises.

Edinburgh House remained in residence at Great Ballard until 1995 when it merged with the nearby Fernhill Manor School for girls to form the new Ballard School. It was at this point that the school managed to purchase the freehold on the estate and buildings. The school grows ever more established and looks set to be in residence at Great Ballard for many years to come.

In 1940, the school and its grounds were commandeered by the military. A number of infantry batt ttalions t were posted to the New Milton area and defended the coast line from Highcliff through to Keyhaven with their headquarters based at Great Ballard. The war diaries reveal that Major General Montgomery and Major General Alan Brooke, Commander in Chief of Home Forces were among some of the senior offi fficers fi who visited Great Ballard and inspected the defences.

On Saturday 9th of September there is an opportunity to visit Great Ballard and view the house and grounds. The school is holding a ‘Heritage Open Day’ from 09.30 to 12.30. This is a free event. Everyone is welcome to attend. Booking is not necessary; however Mrs Alix Stockwell who is running the event would appreciate a courtesy call so that she can gauge visitor numbers. She is contactable at Alix. Stockwell@ballardschool. co.uk For those who are not online a phone message can be passed to Alix on 01425 626900.

When peace was declared in 1945 the Ubsdell family again tried to sell the estate. They were unable to do so. Once more the house and its grounds were leased to a school. This time it was to Edinburgh House School which had formerly been located at Lee-on-the Solent.

I am grateful to Ian Broadway, the archivist at Ballard School for allowing me access to his Ballard history and research material. Nick Saunders is a local historian who would be pleased to hear from any reader who has information relating to local history. In addition he would be interested to see any postcards or photographs of our district.

HIGHCLIFFE’S ARTIST’S TREE OF LIFE PAINTING RETURNS HOME AFTER ITS 10,000 MILE JOURNEY In 2014, local mixedmedia artist Sharon White held an emotive art workshop with 50 Bournemouth ladies which was the start of an epic journey for the piece she was creating for Breast Cancer Care. The ‘Tree of Life’ artwork then travelled the UK, plus toured parts of the Middle East and has now returned home to Christchurch from its 10,000 mile journey and is on public display at Sharon’s studio in Atelier, Saxon Square, Christchurch. Each of the butterflies attached to the tree were fashioned by women who have been affected by breast cancer. The lace, fabric and fine detail were taken from bras donated and autographed by

celebrities and headline names, including Lorraine Kelly, Tess Daly, Jane McDonald, Denise Welch, (see photo below left) Kirstie Allsopp and Strictly Come Dancing. The Tree has now travelled over 10,000 miles from the Dorset coast, to the UAE, planting roots in every City it visited. It was also proudly exhibited at London’s prestigious Fashion & Textile Museum and has been seen by Royalty. At workshops held in Dubai and Abu Dhabi, Sharon shared stories with Middle Eastern women about this indiscriminate disease and the ethos behind the artwork. Over 4 million people were reached during this campaign, raising vital awareness for Breast Cancer Care. The mammoth artwork will finally plant its roots in October when it will go on permanent display in the Mayor’s Parlour in Sevenoaks, Kent. This has been organised by key Breast Cancer Care supporter Steph Harrison who has already raised many thousands of

7

pounds for the charity. Sharon truly believes in the therapeutic value of art and, in addition to working as head of art at secondary school level for 17 years, she has also worked in art therapy at Shelley Park (Neuro Care Centre) which is a long established progressive specialist neurological care and rehabilitation facility in the South of England. Later this year, the international artist will be holding mindfulness and well being art workshops at her Christchurch studio in Atelier. More information can be found at www.sharonwhiteart.co.uk

Peugeot 3008 SUV 1.2 GT Line Tim Barnes-Clay carwriteups.co.uk It is not unusual to see some big changes between an older and newer generation of the same model, but the all-new Peugeot 3008 SUV looks radically different to the outgoing one. That exiting generation, introduced in 2008, was a frumpy, chubby SUV that did little to inspire buyers. The all-new Peugeot 3008 SUV, though, is a different animal, burying the clumsy image of the last car six-feet under and achieving the European Car of the Year crown.

The car grips bitumen like a cat’s claws cling to flesh, and mid-range pulling power is good, so you can pick up the pace easily. The sixspeed transmission is slick shifting, and the car delivers a hushed ride. Tyre roar and wind whistle is kept out of the cabin, too. All this just adds to the 3008’s sense of refinement.

The Peugeot offers a composed ride with seats that provide the sort of comfort and support required for Sometimes it can be difficult to long distance motoring. separate SUVs out on the road Furthermore, the car’s suspension because most of them drive alike. sops up potholes without Many are set up for comfort, and complaining.

But it has all the safety kit you really need, and as with all are a couple of turbo diesel 3008s, it has a top five-star Euro engines of 1.6-litre and 2.0-litre NCAP safety score. capacity. What suits you best is largely going to depend on what sort of driving you do. Short urban trips suit the 1.2-litre petrol more, whereas longer journeys will fit the potential 70mpg obtainable from the 1.6-litre diesel.

A car can look great and have all the equipment in the world crammed into it – but it’s no good if it isn’t economical and it doesn’t drive decently. There are no concerns to be had in this area with the 3008 SUV. The 1.2 GT Line’s average fuel consumption of 55.4mpg and

The all-new Peugeot 3008 SUV’s entry price is £21,795, but expect to fork out £25,655 for the petrolpowered GT Line I drove. A basic Nissan Qashqai costs £18,545, and the new SEAT Ateca is priced from £17,990. But I think the 3008’s extra cost is justified because it feels more upmarket inside than these two rivals. Cabin materials include brushed chrome, large areas of carbon decoration and textiles. They even cover some areas less commonly found in SUVs, such as the dashboard inlay. It’s all very contemporary and attractive. The Peugeot is just as stylish outside, and it drives well, while delivering a comfortable ride for all.
