Mobiles driving moto Mobile phones are now such a part of our lives that for most of us they're the last thing we see at night and the first thing we look at in the morning. Our addictive relationship with the gadget has grown in proportion to the apps we rely on to direct our daily lives - not all of which are to our benefit. The dangers of using a mobile while driving are well documented and do attract a ÂŁ60 fine, three penalty points and higher insurance premiums. Yet new research reveals that despite the practice being illegal since 2003, three quarters of British drivers see others using mobile phones on some or most journeys, while a quarter spot drivers using their mobile on every trip. And it's not just talking that's the problem - some drivers are texting, emailing, Tweeting, updating their social networks or taking photographs on the move. The AA/Populus poll of nearly 21,000 drivers found 42 per cent say they used a hand-held phone in the car even though nearly two thirds admitted it distracted them from driving. Some 20 per cent confessed to texting behind the

orists to distraction steering wheel, four per cent admit to checking emails and two per cent have sent emails or read Twitter or Facebook updates on the move. Another worrying and morbid development is the advent of "digital rubber neckers" - drivers who feel the need to use their phones to film or photograph serious crashes on the motorway, says the motoring organisation. In one incident on the M1 in Northamptonshire, police recorded 80 drivers using their phones or cameras to photograph emergency services carry out a four and a half hour rescue of a woman trapped in her crashed truck. The seriously injured driver was eventually flown by air ambulance to hospital and survived the crash. The police have contacted most of the drivers to warn them about their illegal and irresponsible behaviour but have not brought any prosecutions. Our research shows that some drivers are now using their smart phones for more than talking on the move. It is really not smart to talk, text or tweet on the move. It beggars belief that these macabre motorists should put their lives and others at risk through their lust for twisted metal. So please drive safely.

FA Cup run comes to a disappointing conclusion for the giant-killing against League One Gillingham. A draw away from home followed by the Monday night replay win at St James Park live on national TV will live long in the minds of everybody present in the record crowd. A first ever 2nd round tie at Conference Premier Macclesfield Town was an exciting match that saw Saints come from 2-0 behind to equalise only to lose late on.

A most memorable season featuring a recordbreaking FA Cup run comes to a disappointing conclusion with Saints just missing out on a play-off place having stumbled on the final lap. A surge in form by Guiseley that saw the Leeds-based club come from nowhere and sustained form by a cluster of non-league big hitters including Altrincham and Boston United put paid to Brackleys’ hopes in a season when Saints occupied top three places for many months. The season will be best remembered of course

It's nearly 3 years ago since l saw Shirley's advert for hosts and since then l have looked after over 80 different dogs, some coming back for their holidays more than once. It's great to hear that their owners have asked for them to come back to me. You can get attached to them and some do become favourites. The way Barking Mad works is simple really. Owners’ who love their dogs and do not want to put them into kennels or who, in the past, have relied upon friends or family but for some reason is not an option this time, contact Shirley Rands at Barking Mad. Shirley visits, meets the dog and its owners and matches the dog to a host family. For example she makes sure a Springer Spaniel goes with a host that can cope with a high-energy dog! So for dog owners this brings peace of mind in the knowledge that their dog enjoys dedicated care and attention as it is the only dog in the household, being exercised and fed as if it were in their own home. I have two Black Labradors

that have stayed many times in the summer and over New Year two years running. They need help around midnight because they are frightened of fireworks. Henry, a German Pointer, comes often with his cuddly toy, as well as a Springer Spaniel called Pi. He loves his ball and is very good off the lead. All dogs come with their instructions, a CV almost, telling us when to feed, how much, walking routines and whether they can be let off the lead, etc. They also bring with them their beds, food, toys and poo bags, and our home soon becomes their home. It's surprising how quickly they settle. I love hosting and the house feels so empty when we don't have a dog to care for, but l know it won't be long before the next one will be arriving. They enjoy their holiday as much as we enjoy looking after them. So if you love dogs but feel you cannot make the commitment to own one, contact Shirley to become a host family. Carol Edwards

BRACKLEY The evening of Thursday 27th March saw a gathering of Association members, friends and guests in Brackley Town Hall for a fundraising Bistro and Quiz evening. Our chairman, Anita Robbins, with the assistance of her longsuffering family, had prepared a delicious meal, a german recipe, which was consumed with enthusiasm. It was followed by a slice of cake and a glass of bubbly as a member of the Association, who shall be nameless, was celebrating a significant birthday that very day! Thus fortified and invigorated, the assembled company bent its collective intellects to THE QUIZ. Some teams approached the task in a somewhat ribald frame of mind – one not so sotto voce response to the question “What is the collective noun for a group of crocodiles?” being “A snappet”. But others were more committed

Be prepared to protect your plants using copper tape around slug vulnerable plants especially Hostas. Pet-friendly slug pellets and liquid slug killer will help kill the slugs below the surface or maybe consider using nematodes to deliver a slug-lethal parasitic infection.

Remember one of your greatest allies is birds – provide plenty of flat stones so they can practice their effective snail bashing techniques! Keep the hoe moving through the borders to help control weeds. Remember the adage - one year’s seeds is seven years’ weeds. Catching weeds before they have a chance to

flower and set seed is essential. You can always spot treat the likes of Dandelions and Hairy Bittercress with Roundup Weedkiller Gel. Application couldn’t be easier; simply touch the weed and the gel adheres to the leaf so is perfect to use on weeds in flower beds, vegetable plots and other awkward places.
