Brackley Squash Club triple promotion

December 2019 saw Brackley Squash Club achieve significant success as all three teams won their respective divisions in the Oxfordshire Squash and Racketball Association. The 1st Team won Division 1 claiming 188 points in the 12 matches across the opening half of the season with a play-off due against the winner of the Jan-March fixtures in April, which sees the points all reset, which commenced only last week. Victory in that match would see a back-to-back crowning for Brackley following the inaugural claim of the title in April 2019. The 2nd Team achieved an even bigger haul of points, 193, across their 12 matches with journeys as far as Henley, Wallingford & Defence Academy (in Shrivenham, near Swindon). This now sees them into Division 2 with key battles against the first teams of Witney, Harwell, Oxford University &

Paramount (based in Kidlington). Lastly, the 3rd Team (image attached) also achieved top spot, taking 186 points from their 12 matches to complete a hat-trick of success for the club with dedicated commitment shown by all players. With over 260 members using just the two courts Squash is thriving in Brackley ranging from 7 years old through to 75! With over 25 juniors training weekly on Fridays & Saturdays closely in tandem with the Northants Junior Grand Prix plus Ladies Night every 7pm on Friday we are keen to continue to be providing an inclusive environment whilst showcasing & promoting a healthy & social sport. Feel free to reach out to us via our website or social media page for more info or for a trial. With ambitious plans for a 4 court facility backed by a Go Fund Me campaign, watch this space! Our big thanks go out to our members, coaches, sponsors & all those who contribute to the sport.

H ave yo u u p d a t e d yo u r w i l l l a t e ly ? Good! You have set up a will to safeguard your loved ones, but even after you’ve signed your name, life events and circumstances will continue to change around you. As a rule of thumb, many solicitors advise that wills should be reviewed and updated every three to five years to remain relevant. When should I update my will? There have been changes to family members and relationships Births, deaths, marriages and divorces should trigger a need to update a will. Always ensure that the correct people are named on your most current will and people whom you no longer want to include in your will are taken off. Updating your will is especially important if you are remarrying as your previous will is automatically invalidated. You’ve bought a home or business Buying a home or business adds to your asset

portfolio, which is included in your estate upon your death. Having a will in place that states how these assets are to be distributed can help with effective tax planning. There have been changes to tax laws From time to time, new tax and probate laws are brought in by governing bodies. It is good practice to check if any of these new laws affect your estate and management thereof. Additionally, if you move to a new country, certain laws can impact differently. For more information about creating a will or updating an existing will, please contact Julia Routen, Solicitor at Spratt Endicott Solicitors on 01295 204012 or email jrouten@se-law.co.uk.

Gorgeous gifts to d

I love February, it’s a really uplifting month after those dreary January blues! The first Spring bulbs start pushing through cold wintry soil, buds appear on bare-branched trees and even garden birds seem to be feeling Cupid’s influence, preening and displaying to impress a mate. Yes, the most romantic day of the year is almost upon us, bringing with it the perfect opportunity to tell that special someone exactly how you feel. Choosing the perfect present is a lovely way to let your Valentine know just how much they mean to you, whether you’ve been together for 6 months or 60 years. Maybe an expensive treat, something special you know they’ll love or a silly token that reflects a private joke – the most important thing is the time and thought that goes into the choosing. With Valentine’s Day falling on a Friday this year, it’s the perfect opportunity to treat your loved one to a night

out, an amazing candlelit dinner or a cinema trip. If you’re looking for something a little bit different, vouchers for a spa day or a driving experience, a bottle of their favourite fragrance or tickets to a fabulous West End show are always going to be well received. A romantic walk in the countryside followed by a cosy fireside supper would be my absolute favourite, and a heart-shaped box of chocolates or a glorious bunch of red roses are certain to make the right impression. Whatever you choose to give the person you love on Valentine’s Day, with the busy lives we all lead, an evening of your undivided attention and affection is a pretty good gift – one we would all love to receive from our partner!

February can be along month...

Two winters on from those beastly easterlies, and unless there is a massive turnaround in weather systems, we may have escaped a proper winter again. February can be a long month for one so short. Leaping into the month after a fairly mild January, we have already seen the first few daffodils, the Garrya is full of tassels and the winter flowering cherry, viburnums and hamamelis have already been putting on a fine winter show for the senses, visual and olfactory. My favourite scented winter flowers have to be Sarcococca (winter box) and Mahonia. I

have winter box planted close to my front door to welcome me home. Mahonia I struggle to love and haven’t offered it garden room. I find the leaves too coarse and uninviting, the flowers too yellow. But the scent wafting in from a neighbour’s garden is welcome. There is a variety called “Soft Caress” that has far nicer foliage and if I ever have a shady gap then it could be my first. The bulbs are also hitting their stride, and a carpet of snowdrops or aconites is a welcome reminder of what’s to come. Cyclamen coum and hellebores make a lovely combination. I love pale hellebores that can pop out of any winter gloom. I start cutting their foliage back from late

February is a great month to start gardening from the comfort of a warm potting shed or windowsill by starting off seeds of tomato, chilies, sweet peas and hardy annuals. Just give plenty of light to prevent long, leggy seedlings that will get munched by slugs as soon as you move them to a green house or cold frame.

Valentine’s super stir-fry As a tasty supper to share, this dish is fast and easy to make - most of the prep work can be done well ahead and ingredients popped back in the fridge until you’re ready to cook. It can be made with any meat or alternative you prefer – chicken, pork, beef, veggie chunks or just the amazing vegetables! You’ll need: A wok and wooden spatula Salt & black pepper 2 tablespoons Soy sauce 3cm chunk of fresh ginger, finely grated 2 cloves garlic, crushed ½ teaspoon chilli flakes 1 tablespoon vegetable oil or cooking spray for stir-frying Fresh egg noodles 1 pack of beansprouts 1 onion, diced 2 Carrots, thinly sliced lengthways Half each of a red and yellow pepper, chopped 8 button mushrooms, quartered 100g diced beef, chicken, pork or veggie chunks Juice & zest of half a lime 1 tablespoon fresh coriander, chopped Mix the soy sauce, lime zest and half the juice, crushed garlic, chilli flakes and grated ginger, add the chunks of meat or alternative of your choice. Season with salt and pepper, cover and leave in the fridge to marinate for at least an hour – this works really well if you prepare it the night before. Slice the carrots, chop mushrooms, onion and peppers and set aside. Add the oil to the wok and heat, then add the meat (or alternative) and all the marinade and let it sizzle, turning frequently, for 5 minutes. Add the carrots, onion, peppers and mushrooms and cook for another few minutes until starting to soften. Next, add the beansprouts and noodles 26
