Things are looking up in Brackley in 2012 as new businesses have recently opened in the centre of the town. Check out Brackley’s High Street – you may be surprised by what you find there! Have you visited Budgens yet? This independently owned mini supermarket can be found in Market Square, near to Costa Coffee and Subway. It’s a bigger store than it looks from the outside and has plenty of special offers to tempt your taste buds. Domino’s Pizza is just along from the Post Office at the top end of the High Street. Open from 10am until 10pm every day, Domino’s provides a wide range of pizzas, sides, and subs. Both delivered and take away food is available. All Things Rock and Roll will take a unit in the Courtyard Mews and will specialise in buying, selling, and playing vinyl records. Meanwhile, Juniper House, the brand new care home being built in Candleford Close, is looking for a ‘local hero’ to officially declare the home open this Spring. If you know someone, you can collect a nomination form from the Juniper House information suite. There are also jobs available at the new home. See www.barchester.com for details. If

you are organising an event during March, please don’t hesitate to send the details to us. We’ll happily list your event for free. Please email the details to Mandy at inbusinesspublications@yahoo.co.uk

Save Money on Fuel It was only a few years ago that the public protested against high fuel prices as the cost threatened to go over £1 per litre. However, fuel prices have continued to rise steadily since then and make a significant contribution to the difficulties faced by many right now. If fuel costs are a nightmare for you, here are some steps you can take to get more out of every tank of fuel. Firstly, don’t over rev when accelerating. Rather than relying on the sound of the engine to tell you when to change gear, move up a gear when you hit 2500 revs (2000 on a diesel car). Don’t use too high a gear either as this can increase fuel consumption.

You must drive smoothly to conserve fuel. On a motorway, keep to a steady cruising speed rather than accelerating and decelerating often. Around town, avoid stop-starts by accelerating and decelerating gradually where possible. On roads with speed bumps, travel at a steady 20mph. Avoid using your car for short journeys as cold engines use much more fuel than those that have warmed up. Switch off the engine when you are standstill for more than a few minutes. Consider carpooling. If you and a colleague both take a car to work each day, why not alternate and share the ride. Alternatively arrange to give a colleague a lift each day and split the cost between you. And finally, don’t break the speed limit on the motorway. Once you go over 70mph your car guzzles fuel. Driving at 80mph can use up 25% more fuel than driving at 70mph. Jen Oakton

Unlimited FREE Swimming From January 2012 Towcester Centre for Leisure and Brackley Swimming pool will be changing how our swimming lessons are structured. Our new courses of swimming lessons will be aligned to the National Plan for Teaching Swimming (NPTS) produced by the Amateur Swimming Association (ASA), the National Governing Body for swimming. This is a national syllabus for delivering aquatics and provides stages for your child/children to progress through and become competent, confident and safe in water. The new programme will replace our existing Swim Life swimming lesson scheme and therefore you may notice some changes over the coming weeks to classes and the skills being taught. The new NPTS framework encourages aquatic

instruction to be delivered in a safe but FUN environment to aid learning and understanding. You may notice an emphasis on fun and games within your child’s swimming lesson; the use of games and fun activities to deliver learning outcomes has proven to be the most effective way for children to learn and all activities will have a purpose behind them. Your child’s ‘journey through aquatics’ will be enhanced by the new programme as there will be more opportunities later on for them to take part in a greater variety of activities and other water based sports. Along with the new changes, we are also delighted to be able to offer you an easy monthly payment option* that includes 45 weeks of swimming lessons and 52 weeks of Unlimited FREE Swimming* For your free introductory lesson, please contact: Paul Brinklow at Brackley Swimming Pool T:01280 704906 Jean Judd at Towcester Centre for Leisure T:01327 322480

Counselling and psychotherapy often work with similar emotional difficulties such as: DEPRESSION, ABUSE, LOW SELF ESTEEM, LACK OF IDENTITY AND DIRECTION, RELATIONSHIP PROBLEMS, PHOBIAS, EATING DISORDERS, LOSS, BEREAVEMENT, OBSESSIONAL BEHAVIOUR, TO NAME A FEW... Psychotherapy works at a much deeper level within the core of the personality, and consequently offers a resolution to more entrenched and resistant behaviour patterns than shorter term work. Having run a private practice in this area for over 15 years I regularly see new patients for psychotherapy following shorter term treatment(s). If you feel that your emotional problems are deeper seated then maybe think about psychotherapy.

Villagers in Mithulini have a one and a half hour walk to and from a river, with water being transported in containers carried by donkeys or people.” ”My Kilimanjaro route is less used than other routes, covering many terrains – rich forest, moorland, a volcanic crater, snow, glaciers and a lunar landscape with an ash cone. This camping-based trek has the danger of altitude sickness so the route has been carefully planned to maximize my chance of reaching the summit.” “Sponsorship would be most welcome and can easily be given on-line at

Airport Transfers If you’re one of the many people who have recently booked a holiday in the sun for later this year, now is a good time to give some thought to how you might travel to and from the airport. Taking your own car and parking in an airport car park is one option but taking a taxi or executive car for your airport transfer is competitive in terms of cost and a fabulous option to make your life so much easier. A taxi can drop you and your luggage at the entrance to Departures. Compared with negotiating the back roads to a car parking facility, catching an overcrowded bus and struggling with your luggage, using a taxi for your airport transfer means that your holiday starts the moment you leave your home.

A2B Cabs is a professional taxi hire company based in Brackley, Northants. We provide a reliable service for local and long distance taxi hire, mini bus hire and nationwide airport transfers.

Choosing a Roofer Do you take your roof for granted? Often it’s only when the roof starts to leak that we take any notice of it! But it’s very important not to neglect this part of your house. A building’s roof takes the brunt of the weather; coping with snow, storms, rain, sun, and frost, and when a problem occurs, it can become a very big problem very quickly. So if you’ve got a roof problem, how do you choose a reliable experienced roofer? Firstly, asking around is a good idea. If friends have first-hand experience of a local roofer and are happy to recommend, then it’s definitely worth getting a quote from that company. This magazine, the Internet or your local telephone directories will provide further contacts. You may also wish to ask trades people that you have previously used if they can recommend someone.

When you make contact, judge the level of customer service. Is the roofing contractor easy to talk to on the phone? Do they offer a free estimate? You can tell if a roofer is professional and knowledgeable from these early conversations. When a roofing contractor comes to quote, don’t be afraid to ask questions. Check out the roofer’s experience and that of their roofing team. What qualifications do they have? Are they a member of an approved roofing scheme such as NFRC or CORC? Check that the company is insured. All good roofing firms will have an insurance policy. Ask the roofer to clearly explain what work is needed and to send a broken down quote. This will allow you to compare quotes like for like. If the quote looks good, do some more research. Ask for references to find out what previous customers think of the roofer’s work and service. Always remember that the lowest price isn’t always the best price – there’s a balance between good quality and good price. Don’t simply rely on a gut feeling. Your roof is too important! Jen Oakton

Buying a Puppy

The perfect alternative to kennels

If you are looking to buy a puppy, this is a good time of year to do so as you’ll be able to make the most of the warmer weather once pup is allowed to go out of the house. However, it’s not a purchase that should be made lightly. Is your family definitely ready for such a huge responsibility?

Let us arrange for your dog/s to stay with one of our local, carefully selected, very special families – because at Barking Mad we believe your dog deserves a holiday too! For more information about our service please contact Shirley Rands

Tel: 01280 700110 Email: shirley.rands@barkingmad.uk.com www.barkingmad.uk.com

A dog relies on its owners for everything – food, shelter, water, exercise, grooming, training, vet care, companionship and protection. Before getting a dog, you need to be sure that you have the time, the patience, the understanding, and the determination to be make this life-long commitment a success. R

A dog is not just a dog. All breeds are different and you should spend many hours researching to find out which breed will best suit your family.

Pancake Frenzy! Pancake Day falls on February 21st this year. It’s an event that pancake lovers, old and young, look forward to. Also known as Shrove Tuesday, this is the last day before the period of time that Christians call Lent, which is a time for giving things up. It’s traditional to eat pancakes on this day as a last minute indulgence and to use up fat, butter, and eggs - all traditionally forbidden during Lent. Pancakes are easy to make and very easy to buy ready-made. Traditionally, pancakes are sprinkled with caster sugar and freshly squeezed lemon juice but there are many more ideas for topping a pancake. Why not be a bit more adventurous this year and try one of these sweet toppings: Chocolate – melted chocolate or chocolate spread. Jazz this up with sliced banana, dessicated coconut or crushed hazelnuts. Jam – any flavour will do though strawberry jam is highly recommended! Ice cream cream (with sprinkles for extra excitement!) Toffee sauce and whipped cream, honey and orange juice, stewed apples and syrup,black cherry pie filling and kirsch, greek yoghurt and honey,strawberries and cream, Jen Oakton

Written by Chris Day Buckingham Nurseries & Garden Centre 01280 822133

One Potato, Two Potato, Three Potato More “Fancy tasty new potatoes just 8-12 weeks after planting, well you can and it’s relatively easy?” says Buckingham Garden Centre’s Chris Day. We love our potatoes don’t we? I know some of you prefer them boiled, some chipped, whilst others, myself included, adore them mashed with best butter and seasoning! They are surely the best accompaniment to our 5-a-day and because of their versatility; we simply don’t get bored with them. Yes, you’ve guessed it, I’m a great potato fan, so can I recommend you try and grow some this year? We need to start somewhere and it is the seed potato that is the key here. We stock over 40 varieties of loose seed potatoes as well as 18 Heritage varieties (10 tubers per pack) with tastes varying from variety to variety. So, some varieties may fry well, whilst others are more suited to boiling and roasting, whilst waxy potatoes are better for salads than floury spuds. We

The Garden in February would recommend you do a little research and checking prior to buying. But for starters opt for new potatoes – and select popular first early varieties such as ‘Arran Pilot’, ‘Home Guard’ and ‘Rocket’ as these produce well-sized tubers perfect for container culture. Fancy growing them in pots, well here are some tips… 1. Once you get your potatoes home, start “chitting” (sprouting them) in a light (not direct sunlight), cool place indoors. The potatoes will then grow short stubby shoots, which will get them off to a fast start when planted out. Empty egg cartons are perfect for storing your tubers and you can turn the container once a week to ensure strong shoots. 2. If you plan to grow in a pot, make sure it is at least 2030cm (9-12in) deep with a minimum 30cm (12in) diameter. Poly bag pots (they are relatively inexpensive at 5 for £1.99) or rigid pots can be used, but they must have good drainage holes in the bottom.

3. The compost you use for your potatoes must be good quality multi-purpose compost, ideally with say 10% John Innes added. If using home-made compost from the garden, sieve out any woody material so not to hinder the tuber development in the compost. 4. Planting can be done from late February onwards. Allow 1 tuber to a 30cm (12in) pot or up to 5 tubers in a dustbin sized container. You may need to add crocks to large pots. Add 4-10cm (1.5-4in) of compost (depending on the depth of the container). Place the tubers on this, in the centre if one tuber, or equally spaced

around the edge of the container if more. Cover with 10cm (4in) of compost. As the potato shoots grow, add more compost. You need to continue this "earthing up" process until the compost is 4-5cm (1.5-2in) below the rim of the container. Make sure the pots are placed in good light outdoors. 5. You need to water regularly, although you need to avoid overwatering in the early stages of growth. Once you are regularly earthing up, watering twice a day may be necessary. Apply some Doff Tomato or Tomorite liquid fertiliser to your watering can once a week to feed the developing tubers. Here’s the best bit, your new potatoes should be ready from early June onwards!
