Welcome...

In this issue... to the June edition. As the song from the Musical Show Carousel goes “June is Busting out all over!” Sorry, showed my age there!

It seems ages ago now but Sally and I went to the Regent Centre to watch another iconic musical “My Fair Lady!” It is a wonderful show and our local Milton Musical Society did a fabulous job of staging it with knockout performances from every direction. It never ceases to amaze me how much talent we have locally. Slightly less talented (and I’m sure my fellow participants won’t take that the wrong way) but just as enthusiastic are the Walking Footballers of New Milton, ably brought together by Stan. It is far more energetic than I was expecting but a whole lot of fun and well worth a go. Details on the community page if you are interested. Another first time treat was our visit to the recently opened Beaton's Tea Rooms in New Milton. Bucking the trend of the ever increasing Coffee shops this was a lovely surprise. (By the way you can get really good coffee there as well!) Sally and I tried tasty and refreshing teas we’d never experienced before, had delicious sandwiches and the best scones I’ve had for a long time (I had too many!) Definitely worth a trip. This month also sees the first of their bimonthly tea tips which are included within the New Milton local history article. Please support your local businesses and if you do contact any business listed in the magazine please mention where you got their name from. You would be helping the magazine greatly.

Local History

The Indian Memorial at Barton-on-Sea

The Indian memorial at the junction of Barton Court Avenue and Marine Drive, Barton-on-Sea is a familiar sight to us all, but have you ever wondered about the history and significance of this memorial and what it represents?

Unveiling of Indian Memorial

Indian troops, mainly suffering from dysentery, were posted to Barton to recover in the ozone.

The Indian memorial in Barton

In 1914 the sea front hotel of Barton Court was taken over by the army as a convalescent home for sick and recuperating British and Indian troops. This became known as the Barton Convalescent Camp. Later the nearby Grand Marine Hotel was also commandeered to cater for the extra influx of military personnel requiring recuperation. Even this extra building was not enough to cope with the numbers and so wooden huts were erected in the grounds of the Barton Court Hotel and on the undeveloped land opposite. Initially only British troops were sent to Barton, but soon a large number of

To commemorate use of the buildings as an Indian Army Convalescent Home, a memorial was erected and unveiled in Barton on the 10th of July 1917. This is the memorial that stands today at the junction of Marine Drive and Barton Court Avenue, next to the ‘Onion Dome’ building. The cost of the memorial was paid for by subscriptions from the staff of the military Convalescent home. By the time the memorial was unveiled all of the Indian troops had left, and were no longer serving in France and the United Kingdom. Instead they were serving in Palestine and Mesopotamia. This is believed to be one of the First Great War memorials raised in Great Britain, and is only one of two free standing memorials raised to commemorate the

contribution the soldiers of the Indian Army made to the victory in World War One. The only other memorial to the Indian troops is in Brighton. That memorial was raised four years after the Bartonon-Sea obelisk was erected. There were facilities erected to entertain the Indian troops. An article in the Daily Graphic dated 22nd of January 1915 gives a photographic account of a concert put on for the benefit of the Indian troops. The article is entitled: “The West Entertains the East. Indian Troops at a New Forest Concert.” Clearly this was quite an event for the Indian soldiers and the photographs show the troops filling the entertainment theatre and peering in through the windows trying to catch the act. The people of Milton parish took a great liking to the Indian soldiers. They were invited into people’s homes to have tea.


Daily Graphic 1915 article: Indian troops entertained at Barton On Sea

They were photographed frequently and treated as celebrities. One Indian writing home to his family commented that the British people here were quite unlike the British people in India. These were much friendlier. After the Indian soldiers departed, the camp was taken over for the use of British and Commonwealth troops. A YMCA hut was constructed and all sorts of entertainments were put on for them. We know that there was a theatre troop called “The Whiz Bangs” who regularly entertained the troops at Barton.

The Whiz Bangs

Some of the shows were put on at the Milton Hall which is now used as a pine furniture shop located on the railway bridge. One programme still in existence tells us that the 114th performance was held on 17th of April 1918, giving some idea of how often the shows were put on. Later as the war progressed a monthly magazine entitled ‘Barton Breezes’ was produced within the camp. A post card written by a recuperating soldier in 1917 tells us that he is in hut 38 which gives some indication of the size of the convalescent depot. Barton on Sea was not the only location in our area for the Indian soldiers to recover in. There was another convalescent depot in Milford on Sea and also a large site, the Lady Hardinge Hospital in Brockenhurst. In November 1914 the King and Queen Mary visited the Indian soldiers in Brockenhurst.

Apart from the memorial there is little to remind us that once Barton-on-Sea was ‘home’ to a large number of troops from all over the empire, and from India in particular. However, this aspect of our local history will be celebrated on the 10th of July 2018 when there will be a commemoration event to be held at the Indian memorial in Barton. The event is being organised by New Milton Town Council. There will be representives from the Indian High Commission and other dignitaries present. An interpretation board giving more details of the World War one history of the area will be placed near to the Indian memorial. If you would like to be present at this event please contact Joanna Hayward of New Milton Town Council on 01425 619120 or on Joanna.hayward@ newmiltontowncouncil.co.uk Perhaps next time you drive or walk past the sea front memorial you will spare a thought for those soldiers from India who, for a brief moment in time, made Barton on Sea a home and were able to recover from the horrors of the war.

Dementia & Your Legal Affairs

We have recently heard that National treasure Barbara Windsor was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s in 2014. Barbara started acting when she was just 12 years of age and first found fame in the Carry On films and latterly in the “soap” Eastenders. She is a lovely, bubbly, bright lady who has brought joy and laughter to many households. Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form of dementia. Dementia is not a disease. It is an umbrella term used to describe a set of symptoms that occur when the brain is damaged by certain diseases. There are many types of dementia including Alzheimer’s, vascular dementia and Lewy Body. The diseases affect a person’s memory, problem solving, concentration and perception. Whatever its form dementia is progressive and will cause a decline in a person’s ability to think, communicate and process new information.

1

Dementia is one of the top 10 causes of death. Every 3 minutes someone develops dementia. Dementia imposes huge emotional, social and financial costs on the person, their families and their carers. More people are now diagnosed in the earlier stages of the condition when they can still make informed decisions and have more time to plan for their future. Getting the right legal help can make a huge difference to a family. Getting the right legal help enables you to plan for the future. Making legal plans in advance is important. It allows the person with dementia to be involved in those plans and to express their wishes about the future. Receiving a dementia diagnosis can be devastating but you can still take control of your life. Seek legal help to make plans for your finances and property; to make wills and third party mandates; to make lasting

powers of attorney for property and finances and for health and care. Seek legal help to make advance decisions about medical treatment. The Alzheimer’s Society runs a Dementia Friends programme to enable people to learn more about dementia and the small ways you may help. A solicitor who understands a little of what it is like to have dementia and takes a caring, and individualised approach will be better placed to get things right for you. The Alzheimer’s Society has worked hard to increase awareness of dementia and to reduce the stigma attached to it. The announcement from Barbara Windsor’s family can only help that cause. If you would like any legal help following a diagnosis of dementia or any other life limiting condition then please do contact us at Dixon Stewart.

Gwynneth Ashby Writer and Traveller This month we meet Gwynneth Ashby a 96 year old lady who has spent her life travelling the world and writing books. She lives in Highcliffe and has no intention of putting her feet up. Gwynneth was born in Warwickshire moving to Newcastle-under-Lyme with her family during the war. It was whilst recovering from chickenpox at college that Gwynneth wrote and had her first book published. It was a children’s adventure story entitled The Mystery of Coveside House. After leaving school at 18 she attended Hereford Training College where she took a two year teaching course specialising in history and geography. Her first job as a teacher was in the East End of London where, for two years, she taught girls history and geography.

An inheritance gave Gwynneth a sum of money which allowed her to travel. She journeyed on a passenger ship out to Australia which travelled via Aden and Ceylon (now Sri Lanka). She arrived in Perth, Australia in 1950. She travelled across the Nullabor Plain and hitchhiked her way to Melbourne where she visited her cousin. The journey was eventful with numerous breakdowns. On one occasions she recalls chewing gum to help fix a leaking petrol tank. After leaving Melbourne Gwynneth moved to Sydney where she obtained work at a school teaching geography. With another girl Gwynneth hitchhiked up to Cairns where, for two months, she slept at camp sites under a mosquito net. She can still recall the noises of the cane toads. She obtained work as a teacher on

a mission station in a remote settlement on the Cape York peninsular. Here she taught Aboriginal children all subjects of the curriculum for six months. After leaving the mission station Gwynneth hitched a ride on a pearling lugger. This vessel took her up the west coast of the Gulf of Carpentaria to Thursday Islands on the Torres Strait. Eventually she gained employment in Fiji, again as a teacher, this time to Fijian girls. On returning to England Gwynneth was commissioned to give talks on behalf of the Commonwealth Institute. She travelled around Britain giving lectures on Australian Aborigines and the Fiji Islands.

Gwynneth worked for a publisher who specialised in educational and geographical books. She travelled widely, ub for the books. u gaining material


She spent a month walking in the Pyrenees sleeping in the mountains with just an old army groundsheet for cover. She followed the smugglers routes through the mountains and on one occasion, in order to gain entry to Spain, she had to flirt with a border guard as she was missing a stamp in her passport. Gwynneth had been warned of the dangers from bandits when she went walking in the mountains. She came away unharmed but gained useful material which she used to write a children’s television play entitled The Friendly Bandit. Gwynneth spent time in Norway where she walked in the mountains, forded rivers with her boots slung round her neck and slept in mountain huts. She dined on the local food of trout eggs, reindeer stew and cloud berries. She went to the northern end of the country and saw the amazing spectacle of the Northern Lights. The material gathered on this trip led to a radio programme for the BBC schools channel. A commission by the Japanese embassy to write a children’s book promoting the country led

Gywnneth to take her first trip to the Far East. She spent several weeks travelling the length of the Japanese Islands. On one occasion she was relaxing in a public bath when a male judo team rushed in. They were horrified to see her there. The female bath attendant gave her some vital lessons in Japanese kanji symbols for words such as ‘Men’s bath’ and ‘Women’s bath’. Her book School by a Volcano was given the Geographical Association silver award. Further Far Eastern adventures have included trips to South Korea to write books for primary schools. On an overnight journey on a ferry a Korean student asked Gwynneth ‘Where is your husband?’ when she replied that she was not married the student said ‘Oh you are a virgin!’ Then looking closer at Gwynneth said “An old virgin!”

Gwynneth says that this is one of the stranger comments made to her during her travels. Gwynneth has published numerous books and plays for radio and television but not just on foreign travels. She has also written several children’s fiction stories. She is a fellow of the Royal Geographical Society, a member of the Society of Authors and a member of the Society of Women Writers and Journalists. She is in the process of writing a book on her 1950’s experiences in Australia teaching Aboriginal children. Gwynneth firmly believes that age is no barrier. She has no intention of stopping travelling and is about to depart for Australia once again, where she will explore the outback and take the Ghan train from Adelaide to Darwin!

Making Tax Digital for VAT - from April 2019 When does it start and what does it mean for me? VAT registered businesses operating with taxable turnover over the VAT registration threshold (£85,000 until at least 31 March 2020), will be required to keep digital accounting records and file VAT returns using MTD compliant software from April 2019 (the first VAT period starting on or after 1 April 2019). Taxable turnover includes income from standard rated, reduced rated and zero rated supplies. It does not include income from exempt, outside the scope of UK VAT or non-business supplies. Businesses registered for VAT but operating with taxable turnover below the VAT threshold will not be required to keep digital accounting records or to file VAT returns using MTD compliant software until 2020 or later. The current online method of VAT return submission via HMRC online services (Government gateway) will not meet the requirements of MTD but will continue to be available until at least spring 2020. In short, Making Tax Digital for VAT (MTDfV) will not change what is submitted to HMRC, just the way in which it is submitted. The accounting software package used will be required to upload the VAT return information from the software directly to HMRC’s portal.

28

1 25 298 1

Many businesses use spreadsheets to prepare VAT returns and keep records. HMRC has indicated that the use of spreadsheets will still be permitted, but that in order to be MTD compliant, the spreadsheet must digitally link to a software product which uploads the data. If you do not currently prepare VAT returns via a software package, or with the use of spreadsheets, our Cloud Accounting team are currently actively working with software providers in the lead up to MTDfV and can provide further guidance in this area. For non-VAT registered businesses, MTD for VAT will only become relevant if you become registered on a compulsory basis. This date is now less than a year away. If you have any concerns or wish to discuss the options available to you please contact Anne-Marie Gates: T: 01425 610166 E: anne-marie.gates@pkf-francisclark.co.uk

What’s your Style? With Wimbledon being on this month we thought we'd do a bit of reading up on the different styles of tennis play so we can spot them when we watch a match. The Aggressive Baseliner These players like to control play from the back of the court, rarely coming to the net. Their weakness is often their volley. Sometimes it is good to learn to come forward, to the net, instead of lurking at the back. So if you have any financial needs don't be an aggressive baseliner, come forward and see us so we can volley some ideas back and forth about your money.

volleys. The trouble with this style is that it hasn't developed the skills to play the long game well enough. When it comes to your finances it is often best to think long term and sometimes to build a decent investment portfolio feels more like a long rally than a couple of short volley shots.

The Counterpuncher This style of play is all about defence and not Serve--andmaking any errors. These The Serve and-Volleyer players cover the court Unlike aggressive well and do not like to be baseliners serve-andrushed.

The AllAll-Court Player In my very un-expert opinion, this style of play sounds to be the best as players with this style are able to use lots of different shots and adapt their play according to their opponent. When it comes to your finances there is a lot to consider and so like the all-court-player, it is great for your financial adviser to be able to adapt the play according to your specific needs. At Station Financial we are your teammate, not your opponent, and we want to develop the right playing style in order to increase your pension and investments. Why not call us today on 01425 611 666 to book a free initial consultation. With best wishes, Keith Ingram Chairman Written by Lucy Maddox BA (Hons)

‘Reservoir 13’ by Jon McGregor

‘Kill the Father’ by Sandrone Dazieri This thriller is fast paced and gripping with a great cast of characters. A woman is found decapitated in a wood outside of Rome and her young son is missing. The case is assigned to Colomba Casselli, a gritty, no nonsense, detective with her own traumatic past and a consultant, Dante Torre, an expert on kidnapping since a majority of his childhood was spent captive in a silo at the hands of ‘The Father’. This story races through the pages, part psychological thriller, part conspiracy, you keep reading to find the truth after plenty of deviations, revelations and investigations. This is the first time Dazieri has written in English, having completed eight novels in his native Italian. It’s very American in style but Italian in content and approach, long and very detailed. A new author to try if you enjoy a grim, dark, psychological thriller. Published by Simon and Schuster ISBN 1471154122

3

This is a slow meditative read but that is the skill of McGregor’s hypnotic prose. A girl goes missing and the nearby village and it’s inhabitants react to the trauma, search the surrounding moors and reservoirs and then absorb the loss in their everyday lives. The absence of drama makes this novel more of a continuing observation, pulling you into the intensity of the local community as time passes. McGregor notices the little things that compose life, the seasons, nature and the thread of unease that haunts the village as life continues. This has won many awards and it’s an outstanding piece of literature, not for any dramatic narrative but in recognition of McGregor’s skilfully crafted depiction of life after tragedy. Published by Forth Estate ISBN 0008204896

‘A Million Love Songs’ by Carole Matthews Any fan of Bridget Jones will adore this light-hearted romp through singledom. Ruby Brown is newly divorced and reassessing her life after marriage. Working in a pub with her Gary Barlow obsessed best mate Charlie, Ruby decides to ‘get out there’ and meet someone special. Cue lots of laughs, lust and maybe love as she gets herself in some farcical situations. Ruby’s narration is an internal monologue, full of all the angst and uncertainty of dating and relationships, self-deprecating humour and cynicism but there’s a softness to her that makes you care what happens in the end. As in any of these novels, there’s a decision between two eligible men, the lovable rogue or the wholesome gentleman, but Matthews makes the journey enjoyable. Published by Sphere ISBN 0751560324

Taking into account all of the above, you would have thought that overheating need never be an issue, but there is no accounting for sheer stupidity! When the weather is good, I spend all of my time out of doors, either gardening, reading or sometimes just enjoying a bit of relaxation on my sun lounger. (Needless to say, this is set up in the hottest and totally unshaded part of the garden) On one such occasion I was disturbed by incessant panting and on looking around, I found my faithful hound lying on the deck at my feet- with his head in the shade of a palm, but his bottom in full sun!

Local History

Highcliffe Methodist Church

Entrance to today’s Methodist church

In our nation, one size never did fit all, and the Nonconformists were those Protestants who did not ‘conform’ to the established Church of England. There were many flavours of these ‘Dissenters’ and one such was the Methodists, who first appeared in the 18th century under cofounders John and Charles Wesley and George Whitefield. John Wesley (1703-91) has always interested me: a man banned from pulpit preaching who therefore took to open-air preaching.

By rights, I am a Methodist. My father’s side of the family came from Herefordshire, a bastion of both Liberalism and Methodism. My father and auntie both played the organ in the Methodist chapel, whilst my redoubtable grandfather was a preacher and Sunday School teacher. O.k. I am a lapsed Methodist, but nevertheless those Liberal and Nonconformist traditions have stayed with me. I am a rebel through and through. This nation has a complex religious history, from pagan roots to a Christianity based on the Roman church, until Henry VIII dispensed with all that in his desire for a divorce from a barren wife. We then embarked on a Protestant ascendancy (with one brief Catholic interruption under Mary I).

Highcliffe’s Lymington Road has a Methodist Church, which might be missed by those intent on shopping. It’s wedged between a car showroom and a fish and chip restaurant. It’s, ‘a church on the High Street.’ It’s also been known as a church of retired people, which would be no great surprise when you consider that Highcliffe has one of the highest proportions of over-65s in the UK. I could tell that things were changing though: the church hall to the side carried a poster for a ‘baby & toddler group’ (bless). The notice board outside the church informed me of the ‘Women’s Fellowship’ and its ‘Spring Programme’. There’s also the Highcliffe Community Choir, which meets on Thursday evenings in the ‘parlour’ at the church (Methodism has a rich musical tradition). Now, that parlour just sounds so cosy. You can just turn up and beginners are welcome. Well, I do break into song when I do my ‘Dad’s Army Fact & Fiction’ talk, I have some Methodist ancestry, and I’d surely be a beginner. I think I might tick all the boxes. What all this tells me is that today’s Highcliffe Methodist Church is a church of the community, that works for the whole community, no matter what its age.


The building was lit by gas and there was a coal-fired ‘Tortoise’ stove half way down the chapel. Snug. The last service in the original chapel was held in October 1962, and in June 1963 today’s church was opened. Ten years ago, a century of worship was celebrated on the Lymington Road site. I perused the outside and spotted a few more pleasing features. The church organist has his own dedicated parking space. Highcliffe Methodist Church

VIP Parking

The original ‘Primitive’ Methodist Chapel was built in 1908 on land donated by John Frampton, a Highcliffe businessman, who owned a hardware store on the site of today’s car dealership (‘Highcliffe Garage’). The chapel was positioned about 50-foot back from the road (as is today’s). A path once led to it between lawns, but today we have a combo of block paving and tarmac.

How my old man would have loved to have had his own designated parking area. The organist is clearly an important figure. Talking of cars, a poster declares that, ‘God gives you better direction than Sat-Nav.’ Who am I to argue? I’ve often found that it pays to be able to read a map, such as when I was trying to cross the Somerset Levels and half the roads were closed due to flooding. My grandfather was a great believer in ‘providence’ (divinely ordained events and outcomes). Perhaps it was providential that I was able to find my own way.

Never trust a Sat-Nav. Put your faith in God

John Wesley is said to have ridden 250,000 miles, preaching in the open-air two or three times a day. Methodism took hold particularly among the working classes and today has some 80 million adherents worldwide. I went on a pilgrimage myself in June 2016 when I visited Britain’s northernmost church. It is on the island of Unst (Shetland Islands) and it is Methodist. From Highcliffe to Haroldswick in search of Methodism.

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 !!” Recently at the clinic we’ve been having a lot of questions about BUNIONS, mainly because people are fishing out their sandals and pondering the look of their feet and wonder what on earth has happened to them over the Winter.?. So we thought we’d explain a bit more about what a bunion or hallux valgus is… First things first a mild deviation of the big toe inwards (as in the pic) is very common and mine have started looking a bit wayward themselves recently! There may be a family predisposition to them and they usually involve an inward turning and rotation of the big toe. There isn’t a great deal you can or should do in this early stage (unless they’re hurting), although research has shown that footwear/ orthotics that control and support the foot may slow down progression of a bunion. On the flip side, footwear like flip flops or stilettos may encourage them to develop more quickly! A secondary stage bunion (as shown right) may cause a few more problems, as the big toe moves across there may be elevation and displacement of the second toe, pressure on the base of the big

pressing foot questions

toe as it swings outwards and sometimes pain within the joint itself. Not all bunions will progress and some may just remain as a slightly inward turning big toe, but some may move completely across until the toe is almost at right angles to where it used to be. This can be quite a severe deformity at its very worse, but luckily not too many progress to this stage and they can still remain completely painless. Quite a lot of people ask what can I do about it? Unless you consider surgery, not a great deal. It’s a progressive change in the body (like a lot of things unfortunately!) and if it wants to do it, it will. We only advise surgery if the joint is painful or causing other problems within the foot, the foot is a very complicated bit of kit and its best not to fiddle with it unless it hurts. Surgery results are usually very good but as with all surgery there is always a risk. We can help with dividers and various other bits and bobs to make them more comfortable in shoes, but usually it’s really about picking shoes that fit your foot and yes we know we may have just mentioned that a few (hundred) times before so apologies for nagging J….!

Moroccan Chicken with Saffron and Roasted Vegetable Couscous

This is one of my favourite summer meals, light sharp and fragrant. You will need a roasting dish and a sealable bowl (or Clingfilm will do.) To start with, dice the onion, peppers and peel the garlic, keeping it whole. Place in the oven tray with oil and seasoning and throw in the tomatoes. Roast for as long as it takes you to do the rest of the vegetables. Dice the other onion and garlic and cook for 3 mins stirring gently, add the chicken and turn up the heat a little. Add the paprika, turmeric and saffron and stir for 2 mins; pour on the wine and cook for 2 mins more. Serves 4 A bag of fresh fine beans One red pepper One green pepper One large onion Pack of cherry tomatoes 3 cloves garlic Salt & pepper Olive oil 12-14oz diced chicken or 2 thighs each 1 onion 2 cloves garlic A tablespoon of sweet paprika A teaspoon turmeric A sachet of green olives Pinch of saffron Pot of chicken stock Glass white wine Bunch of coriander 1big lemon

Add a chicken jelly stock pot and 1/4 pint of water. Add the thickly sliced lemon and cook for 15 mins with a lid just off the pan. Take the couscous and put into the bowl and pour over just enough boiling water to cover. Then either cling film tight or pop on the lid and leave. Put on a pan of hot salted water and cook the beans for 5 mins. Take the vegetables out of the oven, and stirring the couscous to separate it, add to it gently folding the veg in. The chicken should be cooked now, so stir in the coriander and if you want to thicken it a little I use a teaspoon of cornflower in a tablespoon of cold water. Taste both the chicken and couscous for salt and pepper. Strain the beans and add to the couscous. Pop the chicken on the plate and enjoy with a green salad if you are feeling particularly healthy.

New Jaguar E-Pace SUV Review Tim Barnes-Clay carwriteups.co.uk The E-Pace is diminutive when compared with the F-Pace, and it doesn’t look much like it. It has more in common with the Range Rover Evoque, because it uses the same chassis. There are other Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) models rolled into the mix, too. The new SUV’s headlights are reminiscent of the two-seater Jaguar F-Type, possibly hinting at the athletic potential of the E-Pace.

The jewel in the EPace’s crown is undoubtedly its ride quality. The car feels refined on every road surface, behaving better than an SUV has any entitlement to, even at a snail’s pace. Potholes are soaked up so well that there are times when you wonder if the Jaguar has metamorphized into a hovercraft.

There are two petrols and three diesels on offer. I drove the most potent diesel, the D240 twinturbo. As the numbers in its name suggest, the SUV churns out 240PS, and it’s fitted with an automatic transmission and fourwheel drive only.

The D240 produces just a smidgeon of diesel clatter on start -up, but it soon settles. Give it the beans with your right foot, though, and the oil-burning musical score returns. To be fair, the car’s sound insulation masks this most of the time, to the point where you start to question which fuel type the Jaguar drinks.

There are a couple of model lineups: regular and R-Dynamic; the latter of which gets twin tailpipes, front fog-lights and body-coloured door cladding. Then there are four trim levels within each range. I drove the ‘S’ trim in R-Dynamic form, which boasts fat alloys, navigation, electrically-adjustable front seats and leather upholstery. Behind the wheel, the E-Pace isn’t mind-blowing, but it’s very good as far as small SUVs go. The car’s steering weights up well at speed and the baby Jaguar feels planted, inspiring some confidence in corners. Zero to 62mph is achieved in 7.4 seconds and the top speed is 139mph. Unsurprisingly, I found myself enjoying lacing the E-Pace down Corsican roads; perhaps even more so than if I’d been at the tiller of a German-made machine.

P

th

The E-Pace’s ZF nine-speed automatic ‘box changes smoothly, and on the R-Dynamic, gearshift paddles make things more fun. Rather than staying in ‘auto’ mode, you can dance through the cogs yourself using the shifters behind the steering wheel. The cabin is a lovely place to spend time. It’s even grin-inducing at times, with neat touches, like the ‘cub’ image in the windscreen frame helping to raise a smile. The general effect is elegant enough, with skilfully placed sections of leather and double stitching to remind you you’re in a quality motor. Only some hunks of dark plastic here and there rain on the parade. Room-wise, you’re laughing in an E-Pace. The car will sit four-up, no

wh

t

problem, and tall occupants in the back seat won’t have cause to moan about legroom or headroom. There’s plenty of that. The practical side of things continues to the Jaguar’s boot. At 577 litres, it offers more cargo capacity than most other small SUVs. And things become positively van-like with the rear seats folded down. In place of human cargo, there’s 1,234 litres to knock yourself out with. JLR has every right to look like ‘the cat that got the cream’ with this fresh product. The E-Pace will be popular, no doubt about it. It has a near-flawless mix of comfort, practicality, power and refinement. Not every premium compact SUV can do that.

Plant of the month

Passion Flower A popular, summer climber, the passion flower has exotic creamy-white flowers with purple-blue zoned coronas. Best planted in Spring or Autumn in sunny, sheltered spots, the passion flower will bloom from mid-to-late summer to a height and spread of approximately 2-10 metres. They will need plenty of water during the growing season and will make rapid growth, clinging with tendrils to other plants, walls or fences. Adequate support is recommended for growth. After summer, large, bright orangey fruits can form on the plants providing lasting decorative colour to the garden but are best not eaten. Instead, why not use to harvest seeds for next season.
