NEIGHBOURHOOD WATCH TIPS There have been numerous cases of thefts from cars in the Cheltenham area recently. Here are some useful tips to help prevent the temptation to thieves: Always lock your vehicle when you leave it and take that extra second to make sure that it is actually secured. Do

not

leave

valuable

property

in

unattended vehicles such as wallets and purses containing bank cards which can now be used with no further security checks up to ÂŁ45 per time. Don't leave smartphones, tablets/lap top computers and passports in unattended vehicles - they contain an amazing amount of personal data which would allow identity theft to take place. Visit gloucestershire.police.uk for info.

COMMUNITY NEWS OUR LOCKDOWN EXPERIENCE by Kathryn Wisby, Munchies Cheltenham On Monday 23 March we opened Munchies for business as usual. The previous week was post race week but business was not usual. There was a steady decline in our usual lunchtime trade as office workers were following the trend to 'work from home'. As the week went on we saw businesses close around us, the tension was palpable and the headline news was becoming more and more frightening. At lunchtime on Monday 23 March, I repeat the date as it was a day I could never possibly have imagined, Montpellier was becoming a ghost town with an underlying feeling of trepidation everywhere, the sun was shining but it felt cold and everyone was going home.

With a huge sense of urgency we sprang into action not knowing what to do first or next. We had been in touch with a paramedic through the local COVID-19 Facebook page; she was isolating from her family and sleeping on a friend’s sofa whilst working 12 hour shifts, then going to the supermarket at the end of a shift to find the shelves stripped clear of essential items. The NHS was stretched to the limit and the fear was setting in. She came down in the ambulance to collect all our crisps and snacks and took them back for her colleagues; it

On Monday 1 June we reopened after 10 weeks of being closed and not knowing what to expect. Our usual trade was gone. It was very slow to start with and Montpellier was quiet; the shops, hairdressers, pubs and restaurants were still closed and many people were still working from home. We were cautiously optimistic, in reality that was hopeful more than anything else.

FEATURES, ARTICLES & TIPS - STYLE MIDLIFE NEEDN'T BE A CRISIS

This leads to a lack of self-confidence, a lack of self-respect, negative body issues and the spiral goes down and down. Add to this society’s views on older women – 'over our prime', 'not sexy', 'not employable', 'want a younger model' – and it is no wonder that we end up hiding within ourselves, feeling resentful and angry. After all, we have SO much to give, so much knowledge, expertise, wisdom. We know deep down what we like, what suits us, who we are, we just need the confidence to let this shine out and thumb our nose at the world and say “Hey! Remember me? I am still that sassy, sexy, fun loving twenty something that everyone has forgotten”.

Midlife style columnist Elinor Salter is based in

Cirencester. One of the things I hear over and over again from women of a 'certain age' is that they have lost their style mojo and don’t know how to get it back. I can completely relate to this, as I did too. I got so caught up in being a mum, being a partner, working full time, being in the middle of looking out for older parents and looking after my own family, that I completely lost sight of who I am, who I always envisaged I would be and this is a common theme amongst my friends, clients and people I talk to generally. Then suddenly, you reach midlife and you feel lost, confused, invisible.

Start to build your look-book of pictures of how you would really love to dress. This is where it all starts. From here we will go on to body shapes and the smoke and mirrors of dressing for your shape, but your style personality and your outer image being the reflection of your inner self - that is the magic that leads to self-confidence, that then leads to the positive impact on the rest of your life.

FEATURES, ARTICLES & TIPS - BEAUTY 5 TIPS FOR LASTING MAKEUP by Jessica Rose Makeup Artist We all know that feeling - you wake up, do your makeup, get the children off to school, do a day at work and by the time 5 o'clock runs round you look more like Alice Cooper than Giselle. Here are 5 tips I’ve learnt as a professional makeup artist to ensure that you’re still looking fresh faced come 5 o'clock. 1. If you’ve got oily skin a good primer will give your foundation something to hold on to. I recommend Hourglass Mineral Veil for a good hold and BECCA Ever-Matte Poreless Primer for a strong hold. A little goes a long way with both. If you suffer from redness then a purple primer will help neutralise these tones under foundation (BECCA First Light Priming Filter). 2. The fuller the foundation coverage, the longer the foundation will last. Something soft like a BB cream won’t hold. If you’re unsure about full coverage just use a minimal amount. BECCA Ultimate Coverage is sweat resistant, transfer resistant and water resistant. It’s my 'must have' for brides, it doesn’t budge!

3. The most important thing is how you apply

your makeup. Always with a brush (not fingers). Real

brushes,

available in Boots and Superdrug. If you’re confident, then a beauty blender (sponge) damped with setting spray and gently pressed into the skin to blend your foundation will ensure it lasts even longer. 4. Use a translucent setting powder to hold your foundation and concealer in place. My favourite is Laura Mercier Mineral Veil. 5. Finally a mist of setting spray will keep your makeup feeling fresh but also set. A few I’ve tried have sucked the moisture out of my skin but I swear by NYX Radiant Finish Setting Spray which leaves my skin glowing. And there you have it! Beautiful, long lasting foundation.

FEATURES, ARTICLES & TIPS - WELLBEING HOW TO GET YOUR MIND OFF THE NEWS Firstly, turn off news alerts. Why let your phone interrupt your day with bursts of bad news – or any news? If anything really bad happens, you'll hear about it. If there's anything that you really need to know, you'll find out. What good does it do you to have your precious day interrupted with the latest opinion of the pundits? If you do hear some news and it worries you, the first thing to do is ask yourself, what can I actually do about it? If nothing, then worrying will not help. You will only give yourself more problems. Image by Nijwam Swargiary

by Janie Whittemore,The Healing Company Are you addicted to the news? Do you feel if you miss it, you’ve missed out? As we all know, the news is rarely positive. Do you realise what happens in our brains when we have a diet of continual bad news? We become conditioned to negative thinking and it can have a very real effect on our mental health. Constant stress and worry, high blood pressure, anxiety, our bodies on high alert and ready to take immediate action to save ourselves from imminent danger – when the furthest we are going is to get another cup of tea from the kitchen. All those chemicals and hormones can create havoc.

It is quite difficult to think about your own well being when you're focused on the news ‘out there’ and your own health may even suffer from it. Your news intake need not be more than once a day. Make sure it is from a respected factual news source – not always easy. Some websites specialise in conspiracy theories and frightening or unsubstantiated claims to gain views. If you are prone to worrying, you will obviously want to avoid these. Always research things before reposting having only read the first upsetting headline and potentially perpetuating incorrect information. It is a minefield out there and factchecking is key.

Instead, be gentle with yourself at the moment. There is much fear about, which is not helping us. Try creating a list of self-care ideas.

On your list of things to do there should be at least one activity that is outside. Receiving daylight, fresh air and exercise are timehonoured ways of lifting low mood. Try mindful walking - where you observe everything that you

We tend to find ourselves worrying more at the end of the day, especially if we wake up during the night. Those wide-awake times at 3:00am are so common among us at present. A really good tip is to keep a notepad by the bed and write things down that you are worrying about, maybe in simple point form, before you go to sleep if you can, or when you wake up if not. Write just enough for you to know what it refers to. Once it's written down on a piece of paper, your brain knows that the information doesn't have to be remembered and will let go of it.

GOD, GRANT ME THE SERENITY TO ACCEPT THE THINGS I CANNOT CHANGE, COURAGE TO CHANGE THE THINGS I CAN, AND WISDOM TO KNOW THE DIFFERENCE.

To be more proactive in the war against negativity, you could always try consciously choosing to imbibe good news. Here are some places where you can find some: www.positive.news - long-running print magazine published four times a year and daily online Good News Network Huffington Post has a Good News section The Optimist Daily The Happy News, British illustrator Emily Coxhead created this charming printed newspaper Squirrel News – a free app with only good international news. Do you know the Serenity Prayer? I was reminded of it by a student earlier this week during Reiki class. You can choose to include God or not, but I think this intention is useful when we feel overwhelmed and out of control. 'God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and wisdom to know the difference.'

needs to be balanced to promote good health. The gut bacteria develops from birth and helps us digest our food and get the nutrients from it, provide energy, improve digestion and produce vitamins. It is also an integral part of our immune health, elimination of toxins from the body and even has an impact on our mental health. Our gut bacteria is influenced by a large number of factors. The balance may be negatively impacted by diet (particularly sugar and

FEATURES, ARTICLES & TIPS - MONEY They are filled with experiences, observations,

MONEY: YOU & YOUR PARTNER

and messages that we received about money from people around us. Those experiences and observations were all soaked up by our young brains, which are just like sponges when we are little. We put them all together in our own individual ways and form the beliefs and emotions that we will hang onto for years to come. As each event happens to us that jogs that emotion awake, our pain and hurt grows and eventually becomes a repeating pattern that we try to protect ourselves from by pushing it away. These beliefs and emotions will determine how our relationships with people and money play out for as long as we allow them to.

by our money expert Fanny Snaith One of the questions that I get asked all the time is, 'Why is it that when my partner and I love each other so much, we so often argue about money? It's a real source of conflict.' Divorce enquiries have gone up by 25% since the beginning of COVID, so it's a really valid question to ask. We're all really different when it comes to money. We all have our own money stories, which start even before we were born, yep, our money story starts when we are in the womb and they continue to evolve up until adulthood. The early years of our money stories are the most important.

EVENTS BIMLA'S BUZZ Bimla is our events columnist and has organised events large and small, corporate and private, glamorous, low key, breathtaking in London and beyond, before moving to Cheltenham and settling down. Now she's a new mum and is adapting to the life changes that motherhood brings. Weddings on a budget Wedding budgets are contentious subjects. The average spend (outside of London) is roughly £18,000 which is a huge amount of money for a lot of people. A savvy planner knows a good few ways of keeping those costs down. Here is a selection of ideas to help you along the way: Avoid the summer months and stay away from the weekends. Venues often charge a peak season and weekend rate which can be up to 20% more expensive than saying ‘I do’ on a mid-week winter day. Winter weddings can be beautiful and a British summer doesn’t guarantee the sun. Stating the obvious. If your venue will allow it, go for food trucks and have a more casual Breakfast than the traditional sit down meal. Consider two or three savoury options for guests to pick from, ensure you provide tables and chairs so people still have somewhere to eat, but keep it less formal. If you have to have a seated meal, see if your venue will let you do two savoury courses and then use the cake as your pudding course.

Female wedding attire can be incredibly expensive but there are plenty of sample sales around with dresses at a fraction of the RRP. Get crafty with a bunch of friends and a few bottles of wine. Homemade stationery and decorations will take a bit of time and effort but save you a pretty penny in the long run. Flowers can rack up a hell of an invoice. Think about where designs can be reused throughout the day and get your florist to move them around, from ceremony to table dressing as an example. Finally, if you want a wedding planner but just can’t afford the expense, consider booking my virtual planning service. You will have access to my templates, hints and tips, two hours of virtual 1-2-1 advice and additional group Q&A support. Drop me a line to find out more. Final note – don’t forget that your wedding day is NOT about how much you spend, but your commitment to your partner and celebrating your love with family and friends.

CONGRATULATIONS ANNA'S AMAZING AWARD At a cider event I was chatting to friends Gemma and Anna. (Also at cider event... Me: "That cider really creeps up on you." Husband: "Only if you drink loads of it.") Anna told me about her baking business and we discussed how hard many businesses have been hit by lockdown, including hers. When I looked at Anna's Facebook page I came across this wonderful photo of her winning the title of Baker of the Year in the UK at The Cake Professionals Awards 2020. What an achievement! Anna's business is Sugar Bowl Bakes. www.sugarbowlbakes.co.uk

NEW BABIES Last year we went to a family wedding at a breathtaking

History

Museum in London - and it has already been a fruitful marriage! Luba has given birth to a beautiful baby boy, 7lbs 15ozs. Pranil is of Sri Lankan heritage and grew up in London and Luba is of Russian heritage and grew up in the USA. They conducted the first few months of their relationship long distance but she moved to England before the wedding and they have made their home here. Congratulations also on new babies for Anna & Bjorn Martensson who welcomed Ali Ash into the world a few days early and Sophie Lydia & Daryl Perkins with Arlo Alexander. What great news! We love surprising people with a feature in the magazine, so watch out friends and family... in the words of Ant and Dec, 'it could be you'.

INGREDIENTS

METHOD First cook the spelt in enough water to cover and drop the

the fridge for 2 days. Cut the squash in half across the middle.

Capers 20g 1 Vegetable Stock Cube

Peel the top half and cut into 8 wedges. Cover them in a small amount of oil, salt and pepper and roast at 180’C for 20 minutes until crispy and soft. Peel the bottom, halve it and take out the seeds. These can be washed, boiled for 1 minute and roasted if you want a crispy garnish. Cut up the squash into small dice and cover in water. Boil until soft and then blend into a puree with salt and pepper and the rest of the rapeseed oil to make it into a smooth consistency. This puree would be lovely with any spices you like to use. Cumin and paprika for example to spice up your risotto. To finish the risotto put the spelt into a pan with as much puree as you need to give it a nice creamy consistency but still dry enough to hold itself up. Warm this gently adding salt and pepper and a splash of white wine vinegar or lemon juice for a nice acidic balance. When hot, check the consistency and throw in chopped chives. Put the risotto onto four plates, and garnish with the roasted pieces of squash. Finish with more chives

AWARD WINNING SRI-LANKAN BAR & RESTAURANT THE COCONUT TREE INVITES US TO ‘EAT OUT TO HELP OUT’ UNTIL JANUARY 2021 Award-winning, local Sri Lankan bar & restaurant The Coconut Tree has announced it will offer 50% off all food and non-alcoholic drinks Monday - Wednesday until the end of January 2021. The street food pioneers, who founded the business in Cheltenham, now operate sites in Bristol, Cardiff, Bournemouth and Oxford, too. They said they were inspired by the success of the government’s ‘Eat Out to Help Out’ scheme, and want to use their own offer to put Sri Lankan cuisine firmly on the map in the UK. Brand Director Anna Garrod explained, “In the UK, Sri Lankan food is not as widely available or understood as say, Indian or Chinese cuisine, and we want to help change that; we want to be
