I am writing this a month before it goes to print so I hope that the rain has stopped and we havn’t had hard frosts or snow! Have you got water butts installed because in a few months you will undoubtedly find yourselves having to water again, hard as it seems?

In the vegetable garden or allotment, try to get a trench dug ready for Runner beans, adding compost, old newspaper, etc, to retain moisture. Shallots and onion sets can be planted now as well as early potatoes later in the month. In the greenhouse it is time to start sowing seeds. Plug plants will be available in the garden centres for growing on for baskets and tubs. Seeds can also be grown on a sunny windowsill. Summer is on its way!

RECIPE OF THE MONTH • • • • • • • • • • • •

• • • •

NUTTY LASAGNE When I rst became a vegetarian 30 years ago, eating out in pubs and restaurants was a precarious business. More often than not non-meat choices were omelette & chips or ploughman’s lunch. At least most places now have vegetarian options, many more than one. However, I rapidly tired of pub vegetarian lasagne, which often contained slimy vegetables that slipped and slid across the plate. So, I set about making something that had some body and would stay together until cut. This was the genesis for my nutty lasagne, which is high in complementary proteins and other nutrients. The end result should be rm and crunchy. It is a solid lump of yummy food and most nd two servings more than enough.

1 onion – nely chopped 1 stick celery – nely chopped 1 clove garlic – crushed Black pepper – ground – 1 tspn Virgin cold pressed olive oil Tomato purée 2 tbspn Demerara sugar 1 tbspn Cider vinegar 1 tbspn Soya sauce 1 tbspn 1 x 14oz (400g) can chopped tomatoes Oregano/marjoram/dried basil 1 tbspn total Mixed nuts and seeds, (cashews, almonds, peanuts, brazils, sun ower and sesame seeds), 1lb (450g) chopped to the size of black peppercorns. I use a food processor, but be careful not to chop the nuts too long or the lasagne will not have a solid crunchy texture. It is unnecessary to chop sun ower or sesame seeds Mushrooms 1lb (450g) – chopped and lightly fried in olive oil until soft Sheets of lasagne, preferably fresh Edam 1lb (450g) – grated Nutmeg – ground

In a large heavy based pan lightly fry onion, celery and garlic with black pepper in oil until soft. Add tomato purée, sugar, vinegar, and soya sauce. Stir over low heat until vegetables are coated. Add can of tomatoes and herbs. Cook gently for 5 minutes. Stir in nuts and seeds. Take a large square lasagne dish. Put half of the mixture in the dish and spread thinly. Cover with sheets of lasagne then top this layer with the mushrooms. Put on another layer of lasagne and then cover this with the remaining nutty mixture. Put on one more layer of lasagne. Wet this top layer of lasagne with hot water so it has some moisture and does not get too dried out. (There is normally enough moisture in the nutty/ tomato mixture to necessitate not doing this with the middle layers of lasagne). I’m always one for simplifying cooking. Rather than go through the hassle of making a bechemal sauce I nish the lasagne with a layer of grated Edam and a generous dusting of ground nutmeg. Cook in oven at 180° C (350° F/ Mark 4) for 45 minutes until just browning on top. Remove from oven and cut up using serrated bread knife. Use slice to remove portions. Serve with salad and garlic bread. Cool and freeze down any remaining portions.

Without a temporary stopping place:

address the issue of temporary stopping sites for Travellers. From an original 90 possible sites 2 were being proposed and Council had to decide whether or not to proceed to the next stage – the submission of planning applications. What is a temporary stopping site? Does Poole need one? Was the decision to proceed the right one? 23 councillors, including the three of us, thought so; 12 did not. There were 2 abstentions. So why did we support the provision of temporary stopping sites?

Law Spot ...providing the answers

to your legal questions

Every month the solicitors and lawyers at Harold G Walker will be providing answers to your questions about the law. I am proposing to buy a house with my partner. I have saved up more than him and those savings will form the larger part of the deposit. If the relationship should break down and we have to sell the property, is there anything that I can do to protect my share of the deposit? Yes there is. Your Solicitor will advise you that you should hold the equity in the property, being the money that you have in the property after paying off the Mortgage and meeting the costs of the sale, as Tenants in Common. Tenants in Common – an expression which is nothing to do with Landlord & Tenant – means that you have two separate shares in that equity. Your Solicitor would suggest that you make a Declaration of Trust in which you set out your intentions with

I am considering filing for divorce and have been told that a 50/50 share of our family assets is now automatic, is this true?

Cath Porter

Family Lawyer

The short answer to this is no! Where terms as to the division of the family assets cannot be agreed upon divorce then the Court will eventually have to make a decision. Accordingly, our advice to our clients as to what might be an appropriate

regard to the proceeds in the event of a sale. For example, it could state that you each receive back your respective contributions and if you were to be paying the outgoings including the Mortgage equally, you could also share any uplift in the value of the property equally. Consideration can also be given as to what should happen in the event of the property going down in price. You should discuss this with your boyfriend at an early stage and reach an agreement. If it leads to an argument about money, you should give some thought as to whether the joint purchase is actually a Simon Nethercott good idea! Conveyancing Solicitor division of the assets is governed by the likely outcome if a Judge had to make a decision in a final contested hearing. In practice, such final hearings are rare because of the cost and uncertainty as to the outcome. A Judge making a decision is guided by statute law and by previous decisions made by other Judges. An equal division of the assets may well be thought to be appropriate but equally there are very many cases where such a division would be completely inappropriate. A great range of factors come into play in legal issues such as these, and our daily involvement with such cases enables us to provide constructive and practical advice as to the appropriate outcome.

The Broadstone & Creekmoor Brownies joined in the Dorset County 100th Birthday Celebrations event in January at Blandford School in Dorset. The theme for the event was Star Quest and Space. The event had been organised by a joint committee across the county and they were ably assisted by the Trefoil Guild members and Young Leaders. The Event started with a DVD made by Brownies in New Zealand who said they had lost their stars! Our challenge was to retrieve the stars as a Big Brownie Group and to have lots of fun in the process.
