AN EVEN NICER ISA CASH ISA, available to anybody over 16. In essence this is a ‘taxfree’ deposit a/c. Assuming 1) you are a basic rate tax payer, 2) the ISA interest rate = 2.5%, and 3) you invest the current maximum of £5,100; you could receive ‘tax-free’ interest for the year of £127.50. Share ISA, available to anybody over 18. Again a ‘tax-free’ investment, but your money is invested in ‘funds’ that match your own ‘Attitude to Risk’, the types of ‘attitude to risk’ are : Limited Risk, Cautious, Balanced, Adventurous, Speculative Assuming 1) you are a basic rate tax payer, 2) the ISA ‘Fund-Income’ = 5.0 %, and 3) you invest the current maximum of £10,200; you could receive ‘tax-free’ income for the year of £510. Impact of inflation Both of the returns on the original investment in both the CASH ISA & SHARE ISA should be evaluated when also considering that the current RPI Inflation Rate =

5.1% (Office of National Statistics, as at 15th Feb 2011). In effect, the example CASH ISA would return a negative return of -2.6%. What this would mean is that if £5100 was invested in a CASH ISA and inflation remained at 5.1%, the ‘buying power’ of that money would reduce to £4,967, just 12 months later. 6th April 2011 (new tax year), the maximum Cash ISA and Share ISA investments will rise to £5,340 and £10,680 respectively. Therefore, a couple could potentially invest up to £21,360 in a SHARE ISA and receive ‘tax-free’ income of £1,068. (It should be noted that investments can fall as well as rise, and past performance is no indication of future returns. If you are in any doubt about any aspect of your personal finances you should seek independent financial advice). If you would like advice on the above or on another financial matter, including maximizing investment return, tax efficient savings and investments, a new pension or pension(s) review, just call me, I will be pleased to help you, (includes a free 45 minute consultation) Alan Kent, Independent Financial Adviser, Mob: 07948 001849 Moneygate Financial Services Limited Moneygate Financial Services Ltd is authourised and regulated by the Financial Services Authority under number 475973.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A CHIROPODIST AND A PODIATRIST? Let us start at the very beginning; in World War one, many poor soldiers spend most of their time in trenches. Now that is probably not one’s first choice for a picnic but at the time these were their orders and in reality it was the safest place to be under the circumstances. When it rained, the trenches filled with water and soldiers spent long periods of time in this compulsory bath in full military clothing, including the ancient military boot. You can imagine what will happen to the skin of a foot wet for a long time, in cold weather, inside a tied military boot with hardly any chance for airing or cleaning it. Soon enough, the condition “Trench foot” became a menace for the fighting armies. The British army introduced a solution in the form of the rank known as the “Foot Orderly”. Foot Orderlies were the early Chiropodists and Podiatrists you see today and you may have actually visited one if you had a foot problem. The term “Chiropodist” is the known and acknowledged name for the healthcare professional who treats medical problems related to the feet. Corns, callus and bunions are the most famous conditions a Chiropodist treats. In their

natural development however, Chiropodists developed their practice, learning and teaching methods, scientific and medical knowledge as well as state recognition and registration to evolve into a paramedical discipline that treats a wide range of foot related problems from foot pain and ingrown toe nails to foot biomechanics, the high risk diabetic feet and foot surgery. Believe it or not, the titles “Doctor” and “Professor” remain until this day unprotected and their use without formal qualifications is perfectly legal. Similarly, the term Chiropodist used to also be unprotected where anybody could use it without having to obtain any formal training or qualifications. In their attempt to ensure title protection, Chiropodists ended up with legislation protecting both the titles “Chiropodist” and “Podiatrist”. They are two titles that describe the same practitioner. What an anticlimax!! If you have a foot problem, come and see me (below).

Ahmad Al-Khattat PhD Chiropodist/Podiatrist

CHIROPODIST/PODIATRIST Ahmad Al-Khattat PhD is a highly qualified Podiatrist with a doctorate degree in Podiatry from the University of Leicester and over 13 years of experience in treating foot problems. He worked in higher education, the private and the public sectors. He published scientific papers in reputable professional magazines and spoke in many national and international conferences. Ahmad runs a modern Podiatry and Biomechanics community clinic based in the therapy unit at Brackley Leisure Centre in Springfield Way, Brackley. Your feet will carry you on average 60,000 miles in a lifetime, and it is common fact that many people will endure pain and discomfort in the foot, lower limb muscles and joints and even the back due to imbalance in foot biomechanics. If you or your child suffer from Corns, Callus, Ingrown nails, poor skin conditions, foot or leg pain, flat feet or one of the many other foot and lower limb conditions, then we are qualified to give you excellent treatment using various techniques to achieve the comfort you need.

ROYAL FUN Those of us who are of a certain age have fond memories of the community street parties held to celebrate the marriage of Charles to Diana and of Andrew to Fergie in the 1980s. With the imminent Royal Wedding of Prince William to Catherine Middleton, local residents have been reluctant to recreate these lively events. Many people are under the impression that permits will be needed and that health and safety rules may put a dampener on the party but this is not necessarily the case. If you would like to hold a street party, take a look at the Northamptonshire County Website www.northamptonshire.gov.uk . If you search for ‘Royal Wedding’ there is comprehensive information which may help you to organise your party. Jen Oakton

Written by Chris Swallow Swallows Nursery 01280 847721

A

t last Spring has arrived and we can get on with restoring our gardens after being ravaged by the early winter weather. This month will see growth on most woody plants and those that have succumbed to the December lows will be easy to spot. The list of species that didn’t make it through however, is long and expensive.

Pulmonarias

Tough choices A fantastic choice of plants awaits you at the nursery or garden centre. It is so tempting to choose a range of plants all in flower, but do try to include later flowering species to keep interest through the summer. The many species that failed in so many gardens include Phormiums with their sword-shaped leaves, Pittosporum, that New Zealand evergreen with dainty crinkled leaves, Bay Laurels, Ceanothus with their powder blue flowers and so many more.

The Garden in April For a hardier version of ceanothus try the deciduous forms such as Topaz, a late summer flowering shrubby variety with pale blue flowers. Evergreen forms should be grown on a warm, south-facing wall. Phormiums should have free-draining soil and a warm sunny spot. Protection may be required in extreme temperatures. This also applies to Pittosporum and Bay Laurels.

Flowers can range from white, through pink to pale blues. One of the best known shrubs is Forsythia, a true herald of spring. They are ideally pruned after flowering to allow the new season’s growth to produce new flower buds next year. This also applies to many other winter and early season flowering shrubs.

Looking Good Looking gorgeous at the moment are the dainty Pulmonarias (as picture). The ‘Lungwort’, taking it’s name from the speckled leaves, acts as a useful ground cover perennial and does well in the shade.

The Garden in April Worth a try, is the quite rare Forsythia giraldiana (see picture). With its cute little primrose yellow, bell-shaped flowers against dark stems, it can be a real eye-catcher. Plant it in a warm sunny position for best results. Lawn Care Don’t be tempted to over-feed your lawn, as you will just end up cutting more frequently. Once the longer, lush growth is removed (not too low), try ‘mulch-mowing’ as often as possible. This returns nutrient to the grass and can help to retain moisture in the soil.

(known as mulching) will hugely benefit the shrub and herbaceous beds. Any bare soil that is not ‘naturally’ shaded by the plant’s own foliage will rapidy dry and crack in the sun, losing moisture from lower layers in the process. Garden compost, leaf mould or pre-packed products such as composted bark are all ideal. For larger volumes, well rotted manure is a more economic alternative. Forsythia giraldiana

On the Border Assuming you don’t have a perennial weed problem, adding a layer of organic matter
