breeze restaurant guide

Welcome to our restaurant review, with some of the finest dining in our area. Breeze gets your taste buds going... YOD SIAM The ‘Thai Select’ award assures you that delicious Thai cuisine is being served in a pleasant atmosphere, and with that famous Thai smile. Yod Siam have received this distinctive award - one of the highest achievable outside of Thailand. Thai Select, is an award created by the Royal Thai Government and it aims to maintain the high standards of Thai Restaurants abroad. ‘Thai Select’ certifies that the food, hospitality and atmosphere of the restaurant are authentic. Gaining this prestigious award is not easy; standards and guidelines are strict. Only through training and inspections have the finest Thai restaurants worldwide achieved this distinction. Among the requirements to pass chefs must be carefully trained in the preparation of bona fide Thai meals. An accolade to owner Yod, whose hard work and determination to achieve such high standards are evident to all who visit the beautifully decorated and welcoming restaurant. Yod built his restaurant and culinary skills up over many years by helping in his mother’s restaurant in Bangkok. This ‘grassroots’ level of experience has served his customers well, with Yod at the head of one of the most authentic Thai dining experiences available in the country. With bold authentic flavours, the menu at Yod Siam ventures beyond the standard Thai eatery, offering flavours that are rich and refreshing. The balance of sweet and sour, salty and hot is what is often praised about Thai cooking, which focuses on bold flavours in

breeze magazine 4

blissful harmony. Duck Thai Panaeng red curry being a perfect example. Catering for the nervous or unadventurous among us, Yod also serves up timeless classic dishes - all cooked to the same high standards one would expect. Although they dutifully provide the requisite dishes for Thai restaurants in Britain, you can have their mixed Hor d’oeuvres, Pad Thai and gorgeous Chicken Satay. Rest assured, they won’t disappoint whatever your choice! Why not be surprised by some of their less acknowledged dishes? So many of us stick to what we know and love but miss out on the more adventurous creations. Does Chicken in exotic tamarind sauce with cashew nuts (a personal favourite) sound interesting? Or sea bass steamed with lemongrass and Thai spicy herbs tempt your taste buds? You never know - one of these may become your must have dish! Not only can Yod provide a beautifully presented intimate meal for two they can design a menu especially for you. If you’re thinking of a celebration and need a venue, Yod and his expert chef will put together a selection of dishes to suit the occasion and your needs. Whether it’s a business lunch or a set meal for thirty they can provide just the right options. The reputation of the restaurant is notable and has grown from strength to strength over the years. Service is excellent and all of the staff at Yod Siam are exceptionally polite and respectful with a willingness to please. What’s more: you can park right outside in Sainsburys car park for convenience. So why not experience the tastes for yourself? - It’s not just a meal; it’s a journey into Thai culture.

e t a l p a n o Notts County Cricket Club have teamed up with Cook4Life East Midlands to encourage families with young children to start cooking healthy, tasty, easy and affordable recipes. The Cook4Life campaign is a part of the nationwide Change4life movement encouraging people to eat well, move more and live longer. Cooking with children from an early age helps them to eat happily and healthily for the rest of their lives. It’s also a fun way for families to spend time together – and it even saves money. In support of the campaign, Notts County Cricketers, Neil Edwards and Akhil Patel, agreed to whip up a quick and delicious summer fruits smoothie - just one of the many recommended Change4Life recipes and cooking videos found on the campaign website www.cook4lifeeastmidlands.org.uk. Nottinghamshire CCC works in partnership with Rushcliffe Borough Council on several community health programmes, including Cricket4Life which gives local children the chance to find out the importance of eating well, as well as being physically active through the sport. Rose Melvin, health development officer at Rushcliffe Borough Council said:“We support the East Midlands Cook4Life campaign as links well with our community Cricket4Life programme. We hope that, through the programme, children will have a better understanding of the need to keep active in different ways to suit them and the importance of eating the right food to ensure that they keep healthy. We know that kids love smoothies, so we will be using the cooking videos as part of our programme to help engage children on this topic”. To view the latest video, visit www.cook4lifeeastmidlands.org.uk to see local role models cooking, healthy and easy to cook recipes and details of local cooking clubs.

A Blue Plaque was unveiled last month to commemorate ‘The Guv’nor’ at Barton House. Breeze finds out more... T.H. Barton, who was affectionately known as ’The Guv’nor’, is to be the first person in this area to be commemorated by a new series of ‘Blue Plaques’. The plaque is to be unveiled by Sir Neil Cossons, a hero of the heritage scene, and a former Chairman of English Heritage. The plaque will be attached to the landmark Art Deco Bartons office building built by T H Barton’s bus company, Barton Transport Limited, in its original form in 1913 and modernised in the 1930s and 1960s. T H Barton was so much more than the person who created what was to become Western Europe’s largest independent bus company. He was an enterprising engineer ahead of his time, he was amongst the first in the world to work on the then unnamed Diesel engine. He was one of the first in the world to operate a timetabled bus service, he invented a new alternative fuel system for vehicles during the oil shortages of both world wars. He worked in ships engine rooms across the China Seas. He installed lighting on railway stations across Russia and Siberia. He extended and modified buses to ‘carrying capacities’ not to be repeated elsewhere for decades. He applied himself to improve the comfort for, and service to, his passengers, and they in turn held his Company in great affection. T H Barton was awarded the OBE in 1943 for his services to the passenger transport industry.“For over a forty year period …

breezemagazine 8

he experimented and introduced both zany and forward thinking ideas” When in 1946 T H Barton died one obituary reflected on his life that he was ‘beloved of his employees for his genius as a mechanic, inventor, organiser, and human understanding.’ His large workforce was amongst the many who lined the streets to say goodbye to him. After his death the following was reported to the board of Barton Transport Limited: ‘Several suggestions having been made from outside the Company that a memorial should be instituted and the proposal was approved in principle’ But it seems that issues including the looming Government threat to nationalise the Company were more pressing, and after a year the matter was ‘deferred to future consideration’. So it seems finally that tribute is about to be made. The commemorative plaque will be affixed beside the window of the office T.H Barton left for the last time sixty four years ago. Sir Neil Cossons OBE (born in Nottingham in 1939) is Pro-Provost and Chairman of the Council of the Royal College of Art, of which he has been a Governor since 1989. From 1986 to 2000 he was the Director of the Science Museum, London, UK, the National Museum of Science & Industry (NMSI). (The NMSI includes the National Railway Museum,York and the National Media Museum, Bradford (formerly the National Museum of Photography, Film and Television) Previously he was the first Director of the Ironbridge Museum from 1971 and then at the National Maritime Museum, Greenwich from 1983. He was Chairman of English Heritage from 2000 to 2007.The son of a Beeston, Nottinghamshire headmaster and noted historian, Neil Cossons studied historical geography at university and perhaps just as importantly travelled as a boy on Bartons buses. The plaque scheme is a collaborative effort by the Beeston and District Civic Society, the Beeston and District Local History Society and

the Stapleford and District Local History Society, supported by owners and others with the object of celebrating people and place.The plaque is the first of a series planned for South Broxtowe over the coming months.

Heritage Open Days - Saturday September 11th 9am until 1pm. After the huge success of Bartons centenary celebrations in 2008 and to coincide with the plaque unveiling, Bartons are to participate in this year’s Heritage Open Day scheme. Doors will be opening to let people see behind the scenes at the historic ‘Garage’ in Chilwell. The Company’s Directors over the last 100 years showed great foresight in retaining for future generations a unique and extensive record of the pioneering days of bus travel. Many of these documents, films and memorabilia have never been shown in public before. Furthermore, during the Heritage Open Day at The Garage there will be additional display material from other companies from the East Midlands who had a huge impact on the world: Raleigh, with their bicycle production. Players: with the tobacco trade, Triumph from the Motorcycle trade and G H Hurt and Son, with the textile trade. Barton House, 61 High Road, Chilwell, Nottingham, NG9 4AJ.

Just like everyone else, our children need a place to play, laugh and love life. A place where they and their families are cared for and supported. Welcome to Rainbows – the East Midlands’ hospice for children and young people. Sadly, some children simply don’t live long enough. Since 1994 Rainbows has opened their doors and hearts to those children and the people who love them most. And now more than ever, they need your help to keep on bringing care and happiness to the children and their families. As the East Midlands’ only hospice for children and young people, Rainbows is a place where life-limited children and their families can take a break from life’s worries and heartaches. Rainbows £4m development will soon be open It’s a sad fact that there is now so much demand for Rainbows’ services that they have spent £4m expanding and renovating their building to provide new facilities and accommodate more children and young adults. Rainbows has more than 15 years experience of caring for life-limited children from the East Midlands.Their wonderful new wing will further benefit the children and enable them to care for young people over the age of eighteen. It can be difficult to maintain a focus on the normal activities of daily life whilst a child is receiving terminal or palliative care. A child’s own priority would not necessarily be their physical needs or medical treatment. Play within the hospice provides sensory stimulation.The provision of more specialist

breezemagazine 12

equipment (including a hydrotherapy pool, multisensory room and soft play room) and the opportunity for extra social activities, together with improved facilities, will allow the children to behave like children. Six extra bedrooms will allow more children and their families to stay at the hospice – a real benefit for everyone allowing Rainbows to offer a lot more care. Although essential end-of-life care is always available, the number of nights for specialist respite care has reduced.The new wing added to the current building increases the number of nights for respite stays. This vital project will help enrich and improve the short lives of so many children. Together we can give even more Rainbows cares for over 250 families every year, helping them to have fun and really enjoy life through our specialist multi-sensory facilities, adapted accommodation, hydrotherapy pool and music room to name a few. The truth is that they can’t do our work without the help of people like you – and we know that together we can help them bring more love, smiles and laughter to their children and families. Rainbows would love to have your support and there are lots of ways to help.You can donate at www.rainbows.co.uk or call 01509 638 009 to donate over the phone. Or turn your hand to volunteering or fundraising - take a look at the wealth of information on their website to find out more. Want to get in touch? Then just call 01509 638 009 and ask for a member of their friendly fundraising team.

Fancy a night at the pictures 1950’s style? Breeze finds out more...

night out

During the austere post war days of the early 1950’s, the brightest aspect of many people’s life was a visit to the “pictures”. It was a temporary escape from the routine of everyday life. Beeston boasted four cinemas and business was good.TV was just coming in but the ‘pictures’ was still king. Many people still look back at those days with fond memories; there was always some thing magical about a ‘night at the pictures’. Beeston Probus Club and The Chilwell Arts Theatre have joined forces to recreate that special 1950’s feeling. On Saturday October 9th they are bringing one of the greatest Hollywood films from that era to the big screen, at the Paradiso Cinema, based at the Chilwell School. What a great picture, probably the best Hollywood musical of them all. Starring Gene Kelly, Donald O’Connor and Debbie Reynolds, this is a real happy” feel good “ experience. ‘Singing In The Rain’ was first released in April 1952 and was a world wide smash hit. Whilst being a musical it is also a mild ‘send up’ of Hollywood.The story follows the trials and tribulations of a film company coming to terms with the transition from silent to “talkies “and is set in the 1920’s. Most of the musical numbers have stood the test of time to become standard favourites . The title song is iconic and is featured in the popular dance sequence, performed by Gene Kelly when he literally sings in the rain.The story goes that this sequence was filmed in a single takem - some achievement! Donald O’Connor gets in on the act too when he dances to “Make ‘em Laugh”. It’s the one where he runs up the wall and performs an amazing back somersault. This film was the then unknown Debbie Reynolds’ first starring role, she is still working today. So if you are nostalgic for a touch of the past or if you are too young to remember but wonder how your parents or grandparents used to enjoy their nights at the “pictures”, why not go along and see. Join the special guest Jacky Williams, deputy Mayor of Broxtowe for this terrific night. All profits from the night will be donated to Skcin, the Karen Clifford skin cancer charity. It was set up in remembrance of Karen by her husband Richard. Based locally in Nottingham, it has become a national organisation. Its chairman is John Holmes, the well known broadcaster and television presenter. There are currently 70,000 cases of skin cancer a year reported in the UK resulting in 2000 deaths. See www.skcin.org Tickets at just £5.00 can be obtained by phoning 0115 925 2698 or 07827 996223. They are also available at www.chilwellartstheatre.co.uk

take the time and personal reflection to enjoy it - it should not be an ordeal and needn’t be, if aims are realistic and reasonably well planned. Use the experience of both the professionals, who will often give informal advice if asked for it and your families but be careful not to let others ‘dream your dream’ and take over! Church wedding: The most traditional wedding ceremony. Costs are for special requirements of the church such as publishing the banns, plus the other costs associated with the state i.e marriage certificate. Approx amount to be married in a church is £150 - £200 plus state costs (around £30) but this can vary according to district.

Wedding SPECIAL

Although many couples will have discussed some ideas of how they might marry, the actual style of a wedding can be strongly influenced by the increasing number of venues and choices becoming available. It comes down to basic factors first of all; Do you have a large family to cater for? What budget do you have? Does your venue involve travel? The most important advice is to make sure you

breezemagazine 18

Civil ceremony: An increasingly popular choice since 1994 when a change in the law permitted weddings to take place in venues other than a registry office. This means that some of the most beautiful places in the country have become hot wedding venues. Choice of location comes down to a mixture of the emotional, convenience and the desire to make the day a memorable one - it is well worth taking days out to site see potential places to gain a feel and then decide afterwards over a nice meal with your partner! The cost of a civil ceremony varies with district and the fees for the registrar are higher due to the travelling involved - but not excessively so. You will have to inform your home town’s registry even when marrying under another

town’s authority. Approximate amount for paperwork in a civil wedding is around £250. Overseas wedding: A more popular choice for those with either small families, or a wish to combine the wedding with the honeymoon. About 30,000 UK couples now marry overseas and often take advantage of packaged weddings which remove the hassle and stress from the situation. All the razzamataz of the big day is arranged with you when you get there, with a wedding coordinator who meets you and helps with the finer details such as choice of flowers etc and even witnesses if need be! Invites: Many options available from stationary suppliers who keep sample books and custom requirements. Do-it yourself options, or hand made invites are becoming increasingly popular, as this offer the couple the personal touch. Decorations: Themed weddings are on the increase, although the traditional can benefit from excellant decor to compliment your chosen colours.Table and venue decorations can transform a room into your own dream wedding. Attention to this can make all the difference for the ‘wow’ factor. Cake: A good cakemaker will advise you on type, size etc and will also have a catalogue of examples they have created as well as magazine samples to work from. Visiting your cakemaker on their premises is the best advice. Photography: Take a look at their previous work. Check out their credentials. When you have chosen, be very clear about the type of photographs you want showing examples from magazines is best. Jewellery: ‘Till death do us part’ that’s how long you’ll be wearing your rings! So make sure you choose the rights ones. Individually made designs are extra special. Or again, opt for the more traditional designs.

Wedding

Dress/Suit: Check out a reasonable number of shops and ask questions about colour matching etc. Look for somewhere that will again, give you that personal touch. Catering/Evening Venue: Caterers should be well established and preferably recommended. Hotel venues provide their own usually and can recommend other suppliers for music etc., so ask. Flowers: Good florists are often associated with one of the large national bodies. Judge according to how you feel they care about you as a customer. These flowers are extra special - do they think that as well? Cars: Make sure you choose a reliable service - look for recommendations and a good trading history. Good wedding car hire specialists have a range of vehicles so again look for good choice to suit your needs.

breezemagazine 20

SPECIAL

Music: Think carefully about the kind of day you want it to be and choose your entertainment with care. Disco’s are the most popular choice, try to meet the DJ themselves. Recommendations are best, ask if they play anywhere locally where you can get to hear them.Thought about hiring a band? - a nice alternative or addition to early evening entertainment. Video: Available through multi media specialists who can put music and effects to your images to make them more polished. Now becoming available on DVD format so colours etc will not fade. Beauty: The way you look for your photos is so strongly influenced by how confident you feel. A good make-up specialist can really make you glow on the day and this will show on your facial expression. Wedding Fairs: A superb way to meet and greet in person the people who you will rely on come the big day. Great fun too, often with a live musician and free food. Definitely worth an afternoon of your time in the end.

New President of the Inner Wheel Club of Church Wilne, Pauline Sheehy-Smith was pleased to welcome members to the July meeting, including a new member Angela Beal who was inducted at the meeting and visiting District Chairman Elaine Harrison who was there to give a talk. After the Club business, Pauline mentioned several visits she would like to include in her year such as The Galleries of Justice, Nottingham Caves and the Houses of Parliament amongst several others. Any monies raised this year will go to Pauline’s chosen charity ‘Air Ambulance’. The club’s guest, Elaine, proceeded to give her talk on Mary Talbot, Bess of Hardwick’s daughter. Elaine was dressed in period costume to enrich the experience for her audience and this was made and embroidered by herself. Club members were all enthralled and fascinated by her tales. Other events held by the club recently was a ‘Meet the President’s Day’ which was held at Rotary President Barry Woodhead’s home as this was a joint occasion. It was very enjoyable and thanks go to Jan and Barry. Also held was an ‘In-Out Meal’ for outgoing President Margaret Norman and incoming President Pauline. Committee was held at The Bulls Head, Breaston which was much enjoyed by everyone. Past President Margaret concluded her year by sending cheques to Treetops Hospice and Borrowbrook Home Link. Earlier this year she had also presented cheques to NSPCC and to her son Gareth for the charity ‘Balls to Poverty’. In return Gareth presented Margaret with a signed commemorative photograph from Nottingham Forest thanking Inner Wheel for their support and generosity.

Architect in the House is a fundraising campaign run by Shelter and the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA). Architect in the House is entering its 14th year and has raised over £1 million for homeless and badly housed people. Architect in the House is an innovative scheme that matches homeowners with an RIBA chartered architect, who has given up their time, for an hour-long design consultation. In exchange, the homeowner makes a suggested minimum donation of £40 to Shelter. This innovative scheme has also directly introduced over 40,000 homeowners to the benefits of employing an architect and helped them reach a new and exciting target audience for Shelter. This year, celebrity architect and TV ‘Home Show’guru George Clarke has given the scheme his backing and at present they are now working on a huge PR campaign to spread the word about this fantastic initiative. Shelter believes everyone needs a home in a place where they can thrive. They help over 170,000 people a year fight for their rights, get back on their feet, and find and keep a home. They also tackle the root causes of bad housing by campaigning for new laws, policies, and solutions. Their work won’t stop until there’s a home for everyone. Please help them. Visit shelter.org.uk to join their campaign, find housing advice, or make a donation. Why not join in one of the fundraising events: Vertical Rush – Liverpool – 17 October 2010 Vertical Rush, Shelter’s Tower Running event, is coming to Liverpool! On 17 October hundreds of runners will be racing up 558 steps (138 metres) to the very top of St John’s Beacon – Radio City Tower. Registration fee is £20 with sponsorship target of £100. People can also take part in teams of 5 with £100 registration fee and £500 sponsorship target (all together). Registrations for the event are now open and more details can be found at Shelter’s website: http://england.shelter.org.uk

No one chooses to be homeless! When you think of the Homeless do you typically think of people sleeping rough on the streets? A group of people are trying to change things in Long Eaton - you can show your support.... Individuals loose their homes for a wide range of reasons – unemployment, falling out with family, domestic violence, mental health problems, being evicted by their bank, building society or landlord. The Homeless are not just ‘rough sleepers’ but people who ‘sofa surf’ – stay with friends or acquaintances sleeping on floors or sofas. Homeless leads to a rapid downward spiral that is very difficult to recover from emotionally, physically or spiritually. Once homeless the world can feel like it’s against you! While the Homeless may feel helpless the Canaan Trust seeks to ensure they will not be left hopeless. The Canaan Trust is a local Christian Charity that has two properties in Long Eaton. Jordan House is a nine bedroom large property with shared facilities staffed 24 hours 7 days a week. The other property is a shared house having three bedrooms with shared lounge, kitchen and bathroom. Both properties are situated close to Long Eaton town centre and its amenities. The Canaan Trust is about to commence a £40,000 lounge extension at Jordan House on Main Street. One of the Charity’s Trustees, Jay Lane, has undertaken to swim the Channel, toward the end of September, to help raise the money towards the cost of this essential extension. Please consider helping and supporting the work that the Canaan Trust undertakes in the Local Community. Please consider sponsoring Jay’s Channel Swim. You can sponsor Jay by going on line at www.justgiving.com/canaan-trust/donate or contact the Canaan Trust via their website at www.canaan-trust.co.uk Tel: 0115 946 4903

ENJOY A RIOT OF COLOUR IN LATE SUMMER Don’t be downhearted if your summer borders look a little faded, because you can still have a riot of colour in late summer if you plant carefully. Blazing crocosmias and red hot pokers, burnt orange heleniums and deep yellow rudbeckias will brighten up any border at this time of year partnered with impressive foliage plants such as the smoke bush (Cotinus) and cordyline. Dahlias, hollyhocks, Michaelmas daisies, nasturtiums, day lilies and summer-flowering euphorbias provide much-needed freshness. Many combine well with perennial verbenas and grasses. Try growing thistle-like Cynara (a group which includes the cardoon and globe artichoke), which produces handsome foliage and dramatic purple thistle flower heads at the back of a border to add summer interest to shrubs, or allow them to grow through cottage garden favourites. Plant sun-loving cone flowers (Echinacea), in

breezemagazine 34

shades of pink and white. The daisy-like flowers and height (they can grow to 120cm (4ft) tall) mean they work well towards the back of the border, they attract bees and butterflies and add impact alongside globe thistle (Echinops) and monarda. You may have to go to a specialist grower to find perennial sunflowers (Helianthus) but it will be worth it for the zingy yellow blooms they produce in late summer. Like their annual cousins, they like a warm, sunny spot, but perennial sunflowers aren’t fussy about soil provided they have good drainage. The flowers are more subtle than those of the annuals and there are numerous varieties, ranging from H. salicifolius, a tall plant with small daisy-like blooms which last well into autumn, to the golde yellow double variety ‘Lodden Gold’. Red Schizostylis coccinea ‘Major’, russetcoloured Helenium ‘Moerheim Beauty’, cool yellow Phygelius aequalis ‘Yellow Trumpet’, blue Agapanthus Headbourne Hybrids and bright blue Aster frikartii ‘Monch’ all provide late colour. Dark-leaved caster oil plants and orangeflowered dahlias such as D.

‘David Howard’ provide striking colour, along with tall red hot pokers such as Kniphofia rooperi and the deep red D. ‘Altami Corsair’, all of which are attention grabbers. Use drifts of perennial border phloxes in the middle of borders to provide intense pools of summer colour. Herbaceous potentillas or small asters can be planted in front to hide the bare phlox stems. Phloxes are ideal follow-on plants for poppies and shouldn’t need staking except i windy gardens. Don’t let them dry out in summer as they need a mois soil. If you want to add late summer-flowering plants to an existing border, buy as many of the same colour and variety as you can afford and repeat-plant them through the border to unify it and develop a sense of rhythm. Such plants will need to have a distinct colour and reasonably long flowering season. Keep it simple and remember that limiting the colour palette can greatly increase the impact. In general, when mixing colours, aim either for all pastel shades - pale pinks, blues, mauves, creams - or strong contrasting colours - reds, yellows, strong blues and purples. If you mix strong colours with pastel ones, the bright colours will swamp the more subtle ones.

THREE WAYS TO... Deter pests and diseases

1. Bury garlic cloves at the feet of rose bushes to keep blackspot away (garlic is an accumulator of sulphur, an effective antidote to blackspot).

2. Plant onions and carrots together as carrot and onion flies become confused by this intercropping. 3. If you have mole hills in your lovely lawn, invest in some mothballs to stick down the holes as moles can’t stand the smell.

BEST OF THE BUNCH - Agapanthus I always seem to see agapanthus at their best in warmer climes, but it is possible to have plenty of success with these glorious globes of blue or white flowers in this country, as they come into their own in late summer. Growing to around 80cm (31in) tall, the flowers appear above a fountain of strappy foliage in August and, while they’ve a reputation for being tender, some varieties such as the Headbourne Hybridswhile and the deciduous A. campanulatus can withstand frost. In milder gardens they are long-lived perennials which require little maintenance, while in cooler areas they will need a winter mulch of bracken or can be grown in containers which can be moved under cover in winter. They should be grown in an open, sunny spot in well-drained soil and make good plant partners for perennials including phlox and hemerocallis. If you’re growing them in pots, plant them on into bigger containers each spring using loambased compost and add some slow-release fertiliser.

breezemagazine 36

GOOD ENOUGH TO EAT Blackberries (Rubus) They’re so expensive in the shops yet so easy to grow and go wonderfully with apples in pies and crumbles or in a combination of summer fruit dishes or even as a stand-alone fruit in mousses. Unlike other fruits, blackberries will do well in most areas and soils and one plant should feed a family. Grow bushes against a post-and-wire fence, training the stems out and leaving a wide enough path for weeding and harvesting. Canes should be well mulched in spring with compost and then fed with blood, fish and bone in late April. Fruits should be ready for picking from July to September, but make sure you protect the ripening berries from birds by covering the plants with netting. As new stems grow, keep them tied to the vertical post and completely separate from the horizontally trained stems which produced this year’s fruits.Then, when it comes to pruning, it’s clear what has to be cut back, which is the old stems which have cropped.Then lower the next batch into position and tie them in place. Good varieties include ‘Black Butte’, which produces huge fruits of excellent quality, and ‘Veronique’, a thornless, compact variety which bears large fruits in late summer.

WHAT TO DO THIS WEEK • Ensure birds and other wildlife have fresh water and keep ponds topped up. • Prune rambling roses after flowering. • Collect ripening seeds from plants you want to propagate. • Take cuttings from tender perennials such as pelargoniums and fuchsias. • Lift and dry onions. • Water and feed tomatoes at regular intervals, and remove yellowing leaves. • Plant new strawberry plants, keeping them well watered. :• Sow parsley and pot up herbs for later use. • Continue to weed borders, watching out for any self-sown seedlings in the process.They can throw up all sorts of variations in flower colour. • Apply lawn feed using a fertiliser with a high phosphate content to promote root growth and toughen the grass for the winter. • Trim faded lavender spikes with hand shears, but avoid cutting into old wood or it won’t recover. • Give hedges their final trim as they will not grow too much after this. • Cut back wayward perennials which have collapsed or spread over the lawn.

We’re all still feeling the pinch from the recent recession and the people of Nottingham are certainly thinking long and hard about whether to invest in their gardens right now. However, a little of your hard earned money can go further than you might think. So why not give it some thought? In these tough times we’ve all found ways of saving a few pennies. We’d all like to think we can turn our hand to anything. However, just like tiling the bathroom or fitting a kitchen, landscaping is only easy if you know how.That’s why it’s important to get the professionals in. If you’re not sure what you’re doing it can not only be back breaking work, but also dangerous. Chain saws, cutters and breakers are all hazardous tools. Also, if you don’t make a good job, you’ll be in false economy territory. All your hard work will be for nothing if it all needs doing again! So remember, in order to truly enjoy your garden, it may need a little fixing first.” For a true professional call David Richardson at The Outdoor Space Company www.theoutdoorspacecompany.co.uk Telephone: 0115 875 2850 or Mobile 07702 650297

Last month saw the best of Britain’s young swimmers come together to compete at the ASA National Age Group Swimming Championships 2010 at Ponds Forge Pool Sheffield, in which every Derventio eXcel swimmer that qualified won a medal. First in for Derventio was James Latham who was competing in his first ever nationals. Next in the 13 years 200m Backstroke, Eve rose to the challenge and stepped up at Nationals to swim a Personal Best time by 1.28 seconds to 2.27.45. Lucy Wood, improved on her personal best time with an excellent 2nd 100m in the 13 years 200m Backstroke. Coach Kim Hill says “I want to thank all that came to support us during the week, particularly those who came up on the last two days to support the swimmers and their tremendous swims.They already know this but I could not be prouder of them. Not only have they all stepped up, with over half of the team competing in their first nationals individually, it shows the strength and quality that Derventio have. All swimmers were there to support each other and to have fun whilst working towards some amazing achievements.The team spirit and dedication to themselves and each other could not be in more abundance!”

Oliver Davidson 12 from Castle Donington a medal winner at last years Age Group Swimming Championships, has been invited to attend the England Development program level 1 camps later this year.

EREWASH MUSICAL SOCIETY returns to its home theatre when it presents "GYPSY" At the Duchess Theatre, Chatsworth Centre in Long Eaton From Monday 13th September - Saturday 18th September After playing at several different school halls in the last 5 years Erewash Musical Society are finally "coming home" to the theatre that they consider their home.The society is very proud to be amongst the first to perform at the brand new theatre at the Chatsworth Centre and the whole society is extremely excited to be returning after so many years. "How fitting that "GYPSY" our first show back in the new theatre is all about show business" commented Chairman Christine Hewitt. "GYPSY" is based on the memoirs of Gypsy Rose Lee who was queen of the striptease in the 1930's and 1940's. But don't worry this is a family show as the story focuses on her mother Rose (played by Alexandra Tavener) whose name has become synonymous with the ultimate pushy show business mother. It follows the dreams and sheer determination of Rose to raise two daughters to perform on stage and casts an affectionate eye on the hardships of show business life. It's an exciting, fun but dramatic show with many songs you will have heard before like "Everything's Coming Up Roses" "Let me Entertain You" "Small World" "You'll Never Get Away From Me" to name just a few.
