Hi Everyone Don’ Don’t forget to keep this copy for an extra month as there is no new magazine in August. Shame about England in the football but let’ let’s hope for more success in the Olympics. We usually do quite well and there is a lot of expectation this time because it’ it’s taking part in our country. Ever thought of joining or starting a Home Watch Scheme then check out the article on page 6 for details. Anyway I’ I’m going on holiday shortly so hope you all get away yourselves and have a great summer. Thanks and best wishes Trevor

Do your bit for the environment by recycling this magazine when you’ve finished… or even better, pass it on… Thank You

CHADDERTON & DISTRICT HOME WATCH ASSOCIATION Police and Public Working Together HOME WATCH “Home Watch is about local people working together to create a safe and friendly place to live, where crime and antisocial behaviour is less likely to happen. It is about looking after friends and neighbours and them looking after you.” Home Watch consists of a group of like-minded friends and neighbours getting together to help reduce crime and anti-social behaviour, thereby making the community in which they live a safer and better place. Home Watch aims to help people protect themselves and their property, and to reduce crime, the fear of crime, and the incidence of fire and environmental damage, by means of improved home security and home safety awareness, greater vigilance, accurate reporting of suspicious incidents and activities to the police, and by fostering community cohesion. Greater Manchester Police are committed to the concept of Home Watch, whose aims are:

 to reduce local opportunities for crime, thereby deterring would be criminals and vandals;  to establish a community spirit so that mutual co-operation and communication may be achieved, with  

friends and neighbours looking out for each other and working together when confronted with community problems or a breakdown in community cohesion; to encourage people to keep an eye on the more vulnerable members in the community, such as children and the elderly; to inform the Police of any suspicious activity.

Setting Up a Home Watch Scheme Any person interested in starting a Home Watch Scheme should first establish the interest among their friends and neighbours. In any Home Watch Scheme a key figure is the Home Watch Coordinator to act as the link between the Police and the Community. Ideally, a Home Watch Scheme will have a Coordinator for 10 to 12 houses. On a long street or road a Home Watch Scheme may consist of immediate friends and neighbours. Information will be sent to the Coordinator on a regular basis, to be passed on to the members of the Home Watch Scheme. For further information on setting up a Home Watch Scheme in your area, please contact the Chair or the Secretary of The Chadderton & District Home Watch Association at the address below. The Chadderton & District Home Watch Association, which covers one of the six Neighbourhood Policing Teams in the Oldham Division of the Greater Manchester Police, meets on the second Tuesday of every month at the Chadderton Wellbeing Centre. The Chadderton Association, which includes in its membership Local Councillors, Local Authority Officers and Local Police Officers, as well as Home Watch Coordinators and Members, provides a forum for the exchange of ideas and information on crime prevention and home and neighbourhood security. A guest speaker provides the focus for each monthly meeting. The following websites provide valuable sources of information in support of Home Watch:

KARDY KARDY--O-FUN NEW KARDY-O-FUN CLASSES FOR MEMBERS OF ROSEMARY CONLEY DIET & FITNESS CLASSES IN MIDDLETON

Following the success of her Kardy-O-Fun classes in Chadderton, Prestwich and Whitefield, local Rosemary Conley Diet & Fitness Club instructor Jackie Seigenberg is now running Kardy-O-Fun classes in Middleton also – giving her existing and new members the opportunity to come along and give it a try! With summer right around the corner, Jackie is going to help people feel good in the sun, by introducing this exclusive new Kardy-O-Fun exercise concept to her Middleton class on Tuesday evenings 7.00 p.m. – 8.30 p.m. at St Peters, Middleton. Unlike other diet clubs, Rosemary Conley classes offer you a unique combination of dietary advice and exercise, which has been central to the life changing successes that members have seen. And now, Jackie is delighted to say that she will be extending her Kardy-O-Fun classes to include her Tuesday evening Middleton classes. The Kardy-O-Fun classes are a new, exciting twist on aerobics, and are fat-burning, dance-based classes. But there is only one way to see how this revolutionary concept can make your diet and fitness exercise regime more fun - and that’s to try it! Jackie is offering all new members a unique chance to come and give her classes, and Kardy-OFun a go FREE! Why not come along and give it a go – what have you got to lose! “It’s amazing what you can achieve with help and support in our classes. We encourage each other’s progress and we are there for each other when support is needed.” says local instructor, Jackie. “We have already seen so many amazing achievements. And now we’re going to go forward building on this success to help even more people.” Classes include a weigh in, motivational talk and the 45-minute exercise session. Jackie, who runs 10 classes throughout the week in the Middleton, Chadderton, Prestwich and Whitefield areas adds, “I have a job that I love and I am trying to help people to achieve their goals, and hopefully change their lives for the better too. The exercise sessions are adapted to suit any ability, so even people who have not exercised before can come along and join in and enjoy the fun”.

For details of how Jackie can help you to lose weight and get fitter and healthier too, call 01706 663583 or 07790 194118, or visit Jackieseigenberg@rosemaryconley.com for more information on Jackie’s classes.

By Shelagh Stewart JULY All plants need 3 main nutrients to grow: nitrogen (N) for leaf growth, phosphorous (P) for healthy root development, and potassium (K) to encourage flowers and fruit. We buy tons of chemical fertilizers every year in the form of powders, granules and liquids - I bet there's a few half empty packets in your shed right now. They promise to transform the garden into a horticultural paradise with plants that grow like triffids. These fertilizers generally give a quick fix, encouraging fast growth and will often need re-applying every couple of weeks. The NPK content is usually on the packaging and once you know what it actually means you can tailor the product to your plants' needs. It makes perfect sense to use feeds high in K for flowering bedding plants and tomatoes, N for lush foliage and leaf veg, while P is useful for all plants, especially root veg. It follows that some feeds can help more than one variety of plant; I use tomato food for tomatoes, but also for sweet peas and agapanthus. So check the NPK and shop wisely. Chemical fertilizers can be very useful and give good results, but nobody does it better than nature, which is why a gardener's face will light up at the sight of a pile of well rotted manure ! The decomposing matter increases the NPK content of the soil and vastly improves it's structure which is so important for a healthy garden. Manure is usually applied in autumn and, if the worms don't do the work for you, dug in in spring. There are other organic ways to feed your garden: bonemeal is phosphate rich, chicken manure pellets are packed with nitrogen, wood ash (not coal) is high in potassium and if you want a good all-rounder, fish, blood and bone is the best. You can make excellent plant food at home and although you won't know the exact NPK content, you can be assured it's great stuff. Liquid manures or 'teas' give a fast nutrient boost which, because it's in liquid form, is easier for the plant to take up – it's chicken soup to ailing plants. It's very easy to make, all you need is a pair of gloves, a large bucket (preferably with a lid), enough water to fill it and whatever organic matter you're using. Traditionally liquid manure is made from either nettle or comfrey leaves, but you can also use seaweed, so if you're visiting the coast bring a bagful home with you and ask friends and family for seaweed instead of a stick of rock ! Simply fill the bucket with the leaves (don't worry about the stems just bung them all in), cover with water and put the lid on. It'll benefit from a stir every other day, but apart from that nature will do all the work. After a couple of weeks or so the liquid will be ready to use. Strain off the liquid and although it may look very unappealing and smells horrendous, it's liquid gold ! Don't underestimate the strength of this stuff, it's a powerful fertilizer and will definitely need diluting. Decant a small amount into your watering can and add enough clean water so that it's the colour of weak tea. You can use it on anything that enjoys a feed and it'll do a great job.

28


If you've got the constitution for something a little stronger, you can make the Bollinger of liquid manures - muck tea ! It's exactly the same process, but using farmyard manure instead of leaves. Fill a porous bag with the muck, something like an onion sack from the greengrocers or a hessian potato sack and tie the top securely before submerging it in water, again it will need diluting before use. Hardcore muck tea brewers may also be interested to know that cow pats make a heady brew......picture the scene !! WHAT'S ON

THE FEEL-GOOD FACTOR by BILL KEETH a short story in three parts

Part Three: LET GO The gas explosion hit Al‟s house on 18 December, the blast reverberating through from the house next door, and newspaper headlines nationwide were gleefully reporting the disaster within the next twelve hours. The house next door to Al‟s (one of High-Five City‟s) had been totally flattened; Al‟s house losing its bathroom and kitchen. Only the Christmas season saved both sets of tenants from harm: the next-door neighbours (newly-weds the previous month) were out at a work‟s do; Mona and the kids at a pantomime in St Teresa‟s parish hall. Al‟s moment of fame! He was glimpsed briefly on the BBC News as he roamed Solferino Street seeking news of his tenants. Not that Trivia Bullworker, the BBC News presenter, sought out Al‟s comments. Because Al was unknown to Trivia Bullworker, unlike High-Five City‟s, Mr Raphael Godlington, MBE, B.Sc. (Hons.), Dip. T.P., MRTPI, who was reported as pinning the blame for the explosion on “private landlords who are rank amateurs in the buy-to-let market, ignorant of and often unwilling to practise the high safety standards set by High-Five City‟. „Yeah, like installin a job lot of 45 dodgy central heating boilers, sourced in Turkestan,‟ complained Al to Gus Holtby, as they returned from Al‟s final visit to Solferino Street with a refund of his tenant‟s deposit. Three month into the New Year, this was, with Al‟s tenants now become High-Five City‟s, since Al had no alternative accommodation to offer them, whereas High-Five City had half a dozen such houses standing empty on nearby Magenta Street, needful only of a change of boiler and new door handles throughout subsequent to tenants having complained that the door handles from Uzbekistan tended to bend under hand pressure and a hot sun. „Two kinds of tear-drops!‟ sang Al, sotto voce, echoing Del Shannon‟s backing-singers who let rip, echoing the singer‟s words on the CD playing in Gus‟s Ford Fiesta. (Gus was chauffeuring this time out, Al‟s Astra being in dock. „Just the once, though,‟ observed Gus. „Every other time after the first time it‟s “Two kinds of Tear-DOP!”‟ „Listen to em.‟

38


Gus was not wrong. „Why‟d they do that, y‟ think?‟ „Why‟s anybody do anythin? Gus shrugged. „Like why‟s High-Five City tranner pinch your house off of you? „They‟re not tranner pinch it: They‟ll give us twice what I paid for it.‟ „Because house prices have gone up by three times since then.‟ „Just as well they offered, though, seein I can‟t afford to repair the place.‟ „Your buildings insurance‟ll see to that.‟ „Aye, so you say. Even so, how do I know they‟ll do it right? I‟m no builder. Besides, Suzie‟s been mitherin us for ages to get shut of the damned place.‟ This was the first time Al had admitted it to himself, never mind to Gus, that Suzie had been against his house rental project from the start. But only because she didn‟t understand it, and he did. That is to say, he had done: he had understood it as a matter of financial principle. But what he had not been able to get his head round – and never would – was the principle of non-communication embraced by the former Council Housing Department, nowadays High-Five City. Way beyond Al‟s grasp, too, was the unprincipled willingness of the Daily Mess to let High-Five City get away with it. He said as much to Suzanne immediately he got back home, adding: „They‟ve offered us Fifty Thou an I reckon I‟ll take it.‟ „You‟ll do no such thing, Al Horrows,‟ declared Suzanne, glancing round at him from where she stood at the kitchen sink. „Eh?‟ Suzie now turned her attention, it seemed, to the cerise ceramic tiles from Pilkington‟s on the window wall above the sink. „The going price for houses in M50 is around SixtyThou nowadays. There was something on the Granada News today. So we‟ll settle for Sixty-Thou: not a penny less.‟ Al laughed. „You say so, Suzie. Thought you‟d be glad to get shut. Least, that‟s what you were always tellin us.‟ „That was then and this is now. I never said they could rob us, did I?‟ „No. You never did say that.‟ Al went across to her, slipping his arms around her waist, at which she inclined her forehead towards his. Al‟s eyes prickled briefly as he smelled her newly-shampooed hair. Because now Suzie had begun, there was no shutting her up: „We‟ll get hold of an insurance loss adjuster, a surveyor – a good lettings agent maybe. We don‟t need Solferino Street, or any house where High-Five City has any say in the matter. But with Sixty-Thou in the bank we could maybe finance another house.‟ „Another house?.‟ „Two houses maybe.‟ Suzie pulled away from him, fixed him with a frank stare. „What‟s the matter with your eyes?‟ „Tear-dop!‟ said Al Horrows, inanely. „What‟s a tear-dop when it‟s owt?‟ But she was already looking to lift the youngster out of its high chair. So Al Horrows of that address never did need to explain to his wife Suzanne what a tear-dop might be. End
