Red Lion Quarter UPDATE! Spalding Springs into Action

Unless you have been submerged in a bubble of post-Christmas haze, you will surely have noticed the staff and contractors diligently working to finish the grand, brand-new food heritage centre, ‘Red Lion Quarter’ in the centre of Spalding recently. Due to open in early April, the multi-use building is nearing completion with the finishing touches, snagging and commissioning of the building to take place in early February, encouraging local residents to get very excited indeed.

  Externally the building is almost complete and this week has seen work commence on refurbishing Red Lion Street. Over the next couple of weeks, the road will be resurfaced and access to the street will be revamped, paving the way (like it?) for the external hard and soft landscaping on Red Lion Quarter to be finalised. The hoardings will also be removed shortly, and with growing anticipation, Spalding will soon be rejuvenated with the construction of the brand new development ending within the month. Spalding company, ‘BlueBeetle Signs and Graphics’ has been commissioned for the Red Lion Quarter’s signage and are another local resource that have benefitted from the spending ethos of the Community Interest Company

(CIC) that has taken ownership of the development. Internally, the installation of the ‘Sage’ training restaurant facilities, state-ofthe-art kitchens and preparation areas has commenced and in the last couple of weeks, finishing touches to the internal joinery, doors, screens, glazing, ceilings and flooring areas has been completed. The final brush strokes are being put to the painting and decorating, transforming the development from building site to ready for opening. The ‘Food Court’ is also nearing completion and both local and regional food growers and suppliers are being contacted offering them the opportunity to display their produce. State-of-the-art offices, complete with outdoor terraces and private meeting and conference facilities, occupy the top floor of the development, providing great views across Spalding are now ready to go onto the rental market, with rental figures and service charges to be released within the next few days. The chance for local companies to be a part of this exciting new complex has ignited a lot of interest with many services already approaching the management teams, keen to make the most of the opportunity to be in in such a prominent area of Spalding. In addition to all the exciting building work, details of Boston Colleges course listings have just been released with part time and short courses available in; Teaching (qualifications for staff working in the educational sector), Hairdressing, Basic Make-up, Basic Skin Care, Hand and Nail Care, a range of ICT courses, Accountancy, Adult Literacy and Numeracy and of course Catering to

Love is in the Air?

Roses, chocolates and fl owers are all wonderful surprises this  Valentine’s Day. A sexual harassment claim or employment  tribunal on the other hand, are the kinds of surprises that  any small business owner will want to avoid. We all know the  pitfalls of the offi  ce romance and the many reasons to avoid  them, but that doesn’t seem to put people off .  A survey by  CareerBuilder.com reveals that in 2009, 40% of respondents  admitted to dating a co-worker, with 18% indicating two  or more such relationships.  An additional 12% would get  involved if the opportunity arose! However as we all know, the path of true love never runs  smoothly and employers should be aware of distractions,  tensions and even jealousy arising from a workplace romance  giving the potential to aff ect employees’ performance or even  leading to claims of sexual harassment and discrimination.  And with employers paying out almost £8m in discrimination  compensation during 2009, double what it was in 2008,  there’s no doubt that this should be top of the list for any small  business owner.   While it would seem extreme in modern times to ban  relationships between colleagues altogether, not to mention  near impossible to manage, there’s no doubt that an employer 

Advice will need to have some  degree of control over  workplace liaisons.  Wendy Ingrey,  Director of The  HR Dept based  in Lincolnshire,  advises that every  small business owner  should have a sensible and  transparent policy in place.  “As with any policy, guidelines on offi  ce romances should  be clear, fair and followed consistent. It is an employer’s  responsibility to make sure that employees are made aware.  The organisation should think about what it considers to be  unacceptable behaviour or misconduct in the workplace. This  may include inappropriate physical contact; inappropriate  use of language; or personal use of company communications  systems.”   In addition to this, Wendy suggests that “organisations may  include a clause in senior employees’ employment contracts  prohibiting relationships with subordinate employees within  their own teams, departments or locations”.  The HR Dept is a local business specialising in advising small  and medium sized businesses on all employment and HR  issues. For help and guidance with your HR needs email  wendy@hrdept.co.uk or phone 07984 539502.

Health & Beauty Crystal of the Month Labradorite Susan Yoxall of Fenchancements introduces us to a new crystal

A beautiful iridescent crystal of grey, blue and gold, Labradorite is a highly  mystical stone full of esoteric knowledge. A stone for protection from the  negativity others push upon us, banishing the fears and insecurities we have,  allowing our minds to calm and focus on the important things in our lives. As a healing stone, Labradorite helps to reduce our stress levels, relieves  PMT and lowers blood pressure. It is used in the treatment of eye and brain  disorders, and can aid the regulation of your metabolism. Labradorite is also  said to balance hormones, treat rheumatism and relieve gout. It can even 

help in the treatment of colds.  Spiritually,  Labradorite helps us  raise our  consciousness and aids  psychic  intuition allowing us to  connect to  the universe, therefore  enhancing  our understanding and  knowledge.  Labradorite helps us keep our feet  on the ground, giving us  strength, allowing us to view the bigger picture, sometimes we all need to  remove the blinkers!

Preventing colds and flu Many people believe vitamin C can cure the fl u  and echinacea can prevent colds. But is there  scientifi c evidence to back this up? 

Vitamin C 

“Research has found no evidence that vitamin C  prevents colds,” says Dr Hasmukh Joshi, vice-chair  of the Royal College of GPs.  In 2007, the authors of a review of 30 trials  involving 11,000 people concluded that, “regular  ingestion of vitamin C has no eff ect on common  cold incidence in the ordinary population”. A daily  dose of vitamin C did slightly reduce the length  and severity of colds.  When it comes to fl u, one person in three believes  that taking vitamin C can cure the fl u virus. It  can’t.  “Studies found that vitamin C off ers a very,  very limited benefi t,” says Dr Joshi. “I wouldn’t  recommend it.”

Echinacea

The root, seeds and other parts of echinacea  plants are used in herbal remedies that many  people believe protect them against colds. There  have been a number of studies into echinacea’s  eff ect, but no fi rm conclusions.  A review of trials involving echinacea showed  that, compared with people who didn’t take  echinacea, those who did were about 30% less  likely to get a cold. However, the studies had  varying results and used diff erent preparations  of echinacea. It’s not known how these compare  with the echinacea in shops.  This review also showed that echinacea did not  reduce the length of a cold when taken on its  own.  “There is a belief that echinacea aids the  immune system, but a survey of studies in 2005  showed that it did not,” says Dr Joshi. “I wouldn’t  recommend that it helps, but if people  believe it, they can take it. There’s no harm  in it.”

Zinc

There is some evidence that taking zinc  lozenges as soon as cold symptoms  appear may reduce how long a cold  lasts. However, some trials have found  no diff erence in the duration of colds in  people who took zinc compared with  those who did not.  There has also been research into nasal  sprays containing zinc. “Some people believe  that the zinc lines the mucosa [the lining of  the nose] and stops a cold virus attaching  itself to the nose lining,” says Dr Joshi.  “Unfortunately, this 

14  SIMPLY SPALDING  www.simply-spalding.co.uk

By Hayley Willerton

has been found to be no more eff ective than a  placebo.”

Getting cold or wet

The only thing that can cause a cold or fl u is a cold  or fl u virus. Getting cold and/or wet won’t give  you a cold. However, if you are already carrying  the virus in your nose, it might allow symptoms  to develop.  A study at the Common Cold Centre in Cardiff   found that people who chilled their feet in cold  water for 20 minutes were twice as likely to  develop a cold as those who didn’t chill their feet.  The authors suggest that this is because some  people carry cold viruses without having  symptoms. Getting chilled causes blood vessels  in the nose to constrict, aff ecting the defences  in the nose and making it easier for the virus to  replicate.  “Getting a cold from going out in the cold or after  washing your hair is a myth,” says Dr Joshi. “Colds  are common. If the virus is already there and then  you go out with wet hair and develop symptoms,  it’s common to think that is what caused it.”

So what does work? 

The fl u vaccine can prevent you from catching fl u.  Apart from that, the best way to protect yourself  from colds and fl u is to have a healthy lifestyle.   “Eat a healthy diet, take regular exercise and drink  plenty of warm drinks in the winter months,”  says Dr Joshi. “The important thing to remember  is that most people are going to catch a cold in  winter anyway, because there is no eff ective cure  for cold viruses.”

Hypno-Band Weight Loss System The Virtual Gastric Band

The sad fact is that diets don’t work! How many times have you dieted and lost weight only to put it all back on again? The problem with diets is that they do not deal with the reasons why people over-eat in the first place and so as soon as you stop dieting you go back to your old habits and eating behaviours and before long all the weight you lost is back, and more! Using a combination of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Hypnotherapy we can help you change your eating habits forever! If you are really committed to losing weight then the Hypno-Band will enable you to achieve your goals.

The Wedding Count down Begins..... By Kate Gibbard

N

ational Marriage Week runs from the 7th-14th of  February, so to get in the spirit of things we thought  we’d give our wedding couples a helping hand with  planning that all important day. Whether you’ve recently got engaged or have been engaged for some  time, organising your wedding can be one of the most exciting things  you’ll ever do. If your wedding is next year, now is the time to get those  creative juices fl owing – and with some organisation and inspiration,  you can make sure it’s as stress free as possible.  And let’s face it – who needs an excuse to have some fun? 

Agree a budget - and st ick t o it! Discussing and setting a budget should be your fi rst priority. You need  to talk about what you want to spend and what you can realistically  aff ord. Be honest and discuss any concerns you might have –  remember, you both need to be happy with your decisions!

Do you have any ideas already? If you don’t, it’s time to start  brainstorming! Are there any friends’ weddings coming up soon?  They’re always good for ideas. Buy a wedding magazine and start  tearing out ideas that grab you. Perhaps there is a local wedding show  to go to? You’ll fi nd lots of ideas online – and there are some brilliant  websites packed with inspirational ideas, latest bargains and forums to  discuss ideas.  Sometimes a good starting point is to  think about what you both don’t want. Remember to ask friends and  family – they might have some  ideas you’ve not thought of.  BUT, remember, this is your  day as a couple, so don’t  get bullied into taking on  other people’s ideas!

You might fi nd it’s easier to decide your budget by breaking the day  into ‘key’ sections: wedding attire, venue (ceremony and reception),  catering, fl owers, rings, photographer, entertainment, stationery,  transport and honeymoon.  If family have off ered to help you with costs, have that  conversation now – it’s better for everyone to be in the  picture, and then you know how much you need to  save. Once you know how much you can allocate to  each part of the day, you can start to research your  options.  The trick is to stick to your budget – believe me, it’s  far too easy to get carried away with all the options  available. 

Get researching

You’ve got plenty of time, so don’t panic. Starting your  wedding planning early means you have the luxury of being able to  look at all your options – and then again if needs be!

12 mont hs t o go. Where do we st art?

This early on, there’s no point worrying about who’s sitting where at the reception or what your first dance is going to be. You just need to make a start on the basic features of your day. Date – when do you want to get married? If you can pin it down to a certain month, that will help when you get quotes. But remember, some months, like during the winter, are cheaper than others. Midweek is also cheaper than a Saturday. Have you checked with family and friends in case you’ve picked a date that clashes with another family event? Guest List – you don’t need a final number at this stage, but when it comes to getting quotes you’ll need to work on an approximate number. It might also be worth making a decision now on whether to include children into the list – making a rule early on will avoid confusion for everybody. Themes – is there a specific colour or visual theme you want to incorporate into your day? Do you want a relaxed feel or something more traditional? Are there any specific styles that are personal to you as a couple? Venue – religious ceremony, civil ceremony? At home or away? Maybe you fancy ‘the destination wedding’? The choice is endless! Catering – buffet, bbq, sit down meal? Reception – local village hall, pub, hotel, marquee, or something different? A lot of places get booked up early – sometimes a year in advance so you do need to consider this option seriously, especially if you have a particular date in mind. Bridesmaids – if you’re having bridesmaids, how many do you want? Will you be buying their dresses? Once you’ve made your choices, you can delegate work to them. After all, they are your attendants, so you can make them work for the privilege. This also applies to the Best Man! Photographer – do you want traditional or relaxed photos? What about a video? Entertainment – disco, live band, classical music, chocolate fountains, fireworks, highland piper, line dancing, belly dancing… there is something for all tastes and budgets! Transport – limo, classic car, sports car, horse and carriage? Or perhaps you’re thinking of something different? Wedding attire – the men seem to get off lightly here, but as with all things there is more choice the earlier you start to look. For brides, finding that perfect dress can take as long as you want it to, and there’s no harm looking for ideas now. Some dresses need to be ordered, so it’s best to start early. Honeymoon – in most cases, it’s too early to start worrying about this now. But, there’s no harm in looking for ideas now and keeping your 20  SIMPLY SPALDING  www.simply-spalding.co.uk

eyes peeled for a bargain. Health and Beauty – it’s time to start looking after your health and making sure you’re in tip top condition for that special day. Healthy eating, exercise, a good skin care routine - maybe even some time for pampering?

Booking

Once you’ve discussed these key areas, the next stage is start getting quotes and making visits. Don’t let any one bulldoze you into parting with your money – make sure it’s what you both want (marriage is about compromise, remember!). Once you start parting with money, keep a record of what you’ve paid for and when final payments are due. Why not set up a spreadsheet with everything on it so you can see what’s been paid? It can be very therapeutic to see things being ticked off!

So to summarise, here is a list of ‘essentials’ to tick off with just 12 months to go… • • • • • • •

Budget agreed Wedding date set (why not send out ‘save the date’ cards?) Approximate guest numbers discussed Wedding venue (ceremony and reception) – getting quotes/ booked Photographer & transport – getting quotes/booked Entertainment – discussing/getting quotes/booked Wedding attire – brainstorming started!

What’s next?

As the months go down, you’ll need to think about flowers, booking your honeymoon, menus, the wedding cake, rings, hen/stag parties, invitations and wedding lists. But there’s no need to worry about any of that now. Just stay calm and take one step at a time, and you’ll enjoy every minute of your wedding planning!

What’s hot this Valentine’s and what’s not! If you think the only thing dangerous about Valentine’s Day is cupid’s arrow, think again! For pets Valentines can be a disaster! Each year veterinarians see a rise in poison cases around February 14th, many involving chocolate and lilies; a flower that’s potentially fatal to cats.

Follow our advice on what you need to keep out of paws way this Valentine’s and leave the day free to enjoy it with those you love.

A thoughtful bouquet or a single rose...

Say it with flowers! Just be careful what flowers you choose. Most people don’t realise that all species of lily can be potentially fatal to cats. If you’re sending your loved one a beautiful bouquet and they have a cat, make sure it doesn’t include lilies. And if you’re one of the lucky ones to receive a gorgeous floral arrangement, delicately sift through it and remove any dangerous flora.

If your pet becomes ill and suffers from symptoms such as stomach upset, vomiting or diarrhea, it’s likely he/she may have ingested an offending flower or plant. And don’t forget that every rose has a thorn! It may be a token of love, but it’s also a thorny attacker for a pet. Animals don’t realise that biting, stepping on or swallowing roses could cause a puncture, which may result in a serious infection. De-thorn your roses far away from your pet.

Forbidden Chocolate

Seasoned pet owners will know the dangers of chocolate for their pets. Chocolate may be the food for lovers, but it is very toxic to dogs and cats. A small amount can cause serious consequences.

Chocolate contains methylxanthine alkaloids in the form of theobromine and caffeine, which cause constriction of arteries, increased heart rate and central nervous system stimulation. This can lead to vomiting, diarrhea,

restlessness, and increased urination, and can eventually cause excitability, increased respiration and heartbeat, stiffness, seizures, and exaggerated reflexes.

“Vets see a rise in poison cases around 14th February - Keep it out of paws way this Valentine’s.” So go ahead and indulge, but don’t leave chocolate out for your pets to find.

Chilled champagne, a glass or two of wine is all part and parcel of a romantic evening, but beware!


Spilled wine, half a glass of champagne or leftover liquor can do a great deal of harm to a pet. Being smaller than humans, a little bit of alcohol can cause no end of problems, including: vomiting, diarrhea, lack of coordination, central nervous system depression, tremors, difficulty breathing, metabolic disturbances and even a coma. Don’t leave any alcohol out where your pet may be tempted to lap it up!

Playing with fire

Are you planning a romantic evening by Candlelight? That’s great, but keep in mind that cats and dogs are intrigued by dancing flames. Not only will whiskers get singed, but sometimes the hot wax will burn their cute little paws and faces. Just be careful. Monitor the candles and try to keep them away from any pets in the house. And when you leave the room, put out the fire - or take it with you upstairs!

Undressed to impress

As surprising as it may be, pets love lingerie —the fancier the better. We’re not kidding! Every year hundreds of dogs and cats undergo extensive surgery to remove panties and bras from their stomachs and intestines.

“Don’t lead them to temptation.” The problem usually begins when your underwear winds up on the floor. Your pet thinks it’s a new toy and sometimes swallows them. Ingested lingerie causes deadly bowel or stomach obstructions and must be surgically removed. Remember to pick up your undergarments before your cat or dog has time to get to them!

A gift of life...

And while you’re giving... Why not spoil your pet this Valentine’s too. As a member of the family, they deserve to be remembered on Valentine’s Day. Visit Rooke’s, talk to a member of our friendly staff and we’ll help you choose the perfect present to spoil your furry friend.

Happy Valentine’s!

Giving a cuddly puppy or kitten may seem a fitting Valentine’s Day gift, but returning a pet you hadn’t planned on is not romantic. Pets bring with them a lifelong commitment and choosing a pet for someone else doesn’t always turn out right. If you think your partner would like a pet, why not provide them with a gift voucher so you can choose one together from a shelter/rescue centre.

HELP YOUR GARDEN BIRDS

Nature

By Jeremy Eyeons, Member South Lincs R.S.P.B.Group With Winter here, spare a thought for your lovely garden birds  who have most likely given you hours of free entertainment  during the Spring and Summer months. With temperatures  often around  freezing point  they urgently need our help to  survive. Finding food and ensuring that they  eat enough of it to build  adequate fat supplies to store on the body and burn for energy  is the greatest test for wild birds during the Winter and the food  we can provide can be the diff erence between life and death. During cold snaps the ground becomes too hard for birds like  thrushes, blackbirds, sparrows and starlings to forage and probe . 

How to Help Our Feathered Friends • 

•  •  • 

•  •  •  • 

If you haven’t  already got one in your garden,set up a bird  table.This can be a base for kitchen scraps, high calorie seed  mixes,cooked rice and pasta and even the insides of cooked  potatoes. Put out hanging feeders with black sunfl ower seeds,sunfl ower  hearts,and unsalted peanuts.These will attract fi nches,tits and if  you are patient perhaps a woodpecker! Ensure a fresh supply of water every day (Do not use any antifreeze products). Thrushes, starlings and blackbirds love autumn fruits such as pears  and apples.If you live in a more rural location these may attract  migrant redwings or fi eldfares into your garden.This Winter has  also seen a record infl ux into the countryside and gardens on  the east coast of that magnifi cent migrant from Scandinavia The  Waxwing. Goldfi nches and perhaps siskins  love nyjer seeds which are small  and black and have a high oil content. Bird cake and other fat based products such as fat balls are an  excellent Winter food and are easily and cheaply obtained. Put up nest boxes to provide roost sites for the smaller birds,who  in turn may repay you in the Spring by using them for breeding. If food turns stale or mouldy on the birdtable you are probably  placing too much out at once.Stale food is a breeding ground for 

some types of salmonella which can be lethal.Large quantities of  food scattered on the ground can attract vermin-so be sensible  with what you leave out. You may witness a fl urry of activity early morning and late afternoon  so be selective when you put food out. Finally ,it is important to  continue to feed the birds once you start.You may well be rewarded  with seeing birds you have never seen before close up and in your   garden. Enjoy them! The South Lincs.Group Of The R.S.P.B. was founded in May 1987 and is  run by a group of volunteers to promote the work of the RSPB and for  the enjoyment of members and all nature lovers locally.Though based  in Boston,our membership covers the whole of South Lincolnshire  and to date we have contributed approximately £60000 to RSPB  conservation projects,with much of this spent locally in the county.The  Group has over 300 members who receive a regular newsletter and are  able to enjoy a wide range of organised events which are of interest to  anyone from beginner to expert. Please visit  www.southlincsrspb.org.uk  for further information.

visits to the seaside, start wearing floaty summer dresses and sandals and if you’re lucky enough venturing abroad for a much deserved holiday. There are plenty of us who feel healthier when our skin is tanned so whatever your plans are this summer ensure that you tan safely. Safety in the Sun Tanning occurs when the skin absorbs UV rays to produce a substance called melanin, which darkens the outer layers of the skin. Whilst a tan may make us appear healthier it is actually a sign that the skin has been damaged. There is common myth that a sunburn will eventually fade into a tan. However sunburn is bunch of broken blood vessels that form the top of a tan and can have serious side effects including sunspots on the skin, lack of skin moisture and loss of elasticity. Precautions: • Apply a sunscreen of at least SPF15 or SPF50 for kids • Avoid the sun between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. when the UV rays are strongest • Ensure your sunscreen is waterproof & re-apply every 20 minutes • Wear light loose fitting clothes that aren’t transparent • Wear sunglasses that block UVA & UVB radiation Faking It The safest way to achieve that sun kissed look in the minimal amount of time is by faking it. Fake tan does not injure the skin and you can choose which shade you wish to go. You will however still need to apply sun protection when stepping out as you are still likely to burn. Fake tan has come a long way. Gone are the days of looking as though you’ve been tango-ed. Nowadays they are more sophisticated and the products smell pleasant. There are plenty of professional tanning brands available it’s simply a matter of finding the one that works best for you. There are a few things you can do beforehand to prepare your body for your tanning treatment, Ensure that you shave or wax at least 24 hours prior to treatment. Exfoliate the day before your treatment to remove any dead skin cells, paying particular attention to elbows, knees & heels. On the day of your treatment do not moisturise as this may cause patchiness Spray tans are applied by professional technicians using specialised equipment. The process is quick to apply and dries almost instantly meaning no hanging around in your undies. The spray tan needs to develop for at least 6 hours following your treatment where the guide colour is then washed off in the shower to reveal your newly sunkissed body. The length of time a spray tan lasts depends on how well you look after it. Typically they will last anywhere from 1 -2 weeks. When you bathe or shower pat yourself dry rather than rub. Gently exfoliate every few days and apply a moisturiser daily.

Creating a Feature Wall By Sue Hessom of Tidy Interiors

If you are looking to generate the ‘wow’ factor in your room but time and money  constraints won’t allow for a full make-over, then why don’t you just add a feature  wall?   After all, decorating is all about creating atmosphere and impact and a  feature wall can turn an ordinary room into an outstanding one in no time at all.   A feature wall can be introduced anywhere in the house, it’s just down to personal  preference – but consider your location carefully; remember the idea of a feature  wall is to create maximum impact; it should draw the eye as soon as you enter a  room or area, so being creative on a wall that sits behind an open door won’t have  the same impact and you’ll end up being disappointed with the fi nished results!     Once you have your location, your next consideration is the material you are going  to use – wall coverings no longer begin and end with paint or wallpaper so it  really depends on individual tastes and abilities:-   Paint

By Kate Gibbard

The easiest way to create a feature wall is with a fresh coat of paint.  If you have  a fairly neutral colour scheme this is the easiest option.  Just pick out a colour  that appears in the accessories or consult a colour wheel to fi nd a tone of colour  that will complement your style - don’t be afraid to be bold.  You can paint the  wall one colour but create a dramatic eff ect by using a paint with a specialist faux  fi nish i.e. suede.  Or you can add interest by using diff erent fi nishing techniques  i.e. rag rolling.  If you are feeling really adventurous, generate impact by painting  vertical stripes on the wall, just vary the size of the stripes and paint them in  alternating colours that compliment the rest of your décor.  As long as you have  a steady hand, plenty of patience and some masking tape it really is a simple  technique to use for a very eff ective look. 

Home & Property Feature walls are not all about the wall coverings, you can simply add impact by hanging a nice piece of art, or an oversized canvas on a focal wall and focus the attention on it throughout the day by clever use of lighting. Mirrors are also good for feature walls, just make sure the size and frame will provide the impact that you are looking for.

Even if you want to keep your room fairly neutral you may prefer to use wallpaper  – adding light coloured wallpaper with texture will still provide impact; it will  just be more subtle.  But, if you like colour you can now purchase some luxurious  wallpaper combining rich colours, bold prints and touchable textures that will  create a real statement area.  Don’t be afraid to use your imagination.  The  wallpaper might be too much for all walls, but using it on one wall will produce a  stunning focal point – just ensure you choose the right colours and design – the  last thing you want is to clash with your existing interior. 

Other materials

For those who are experimental and into DIY you can be more adventurous and  use beautiful coverings made from bamboo, dried grasses, lavish silks, metallic  or even woven leather.  Reclaimed wood panelling looks fantastic in a bedroom  when placed behind headboards, likewise diff erent shaped/coloured tiles look  great sat behind the sink or shower area in a bathroom.  If that seems like too  much work, why not have a look at pre-printed wall mural.  They are available in a  fantastic range of styles and themes that are guaranteed to generate a real ‘buzz’  with all guests, just search the internet to fi nd a design that you like.  They can be  printed to fi t the full size of your wall, so are perfect for creating a massive impact  on large fl at areas.   

Design your own

Feature walls are not all about the wall coverings, you can simply add impact by  hanging a nice piece of art, or an oversized canvas on a focal wall and focus the  attention on it throughout the day by clever use of lighting. Mirrors are also good  for feature walls, just make sure the size and frame will  provide the impact that you are looking for.  You can  also produce a feature using a group of photographs or  pictures.  They don’t have to cover the whole of the wall  – more impact will be created if you stick to one area  of the wall.  Use diff erent size frames of the same fi nish  and play around with the layout as it will have a greater  eff ect if the pattern isn’t symmetrical.   Whatever your tastes and whatever your budget  you can create a real statement with just a little  imagination; the most creative ideas don’t necessarily  have to be the most expensive.  Sometimes a lick of  paint is all that it takes!

Family Life

Get Out and Socialise! It’s good for you and your children By Kate Gibbard

When you’re a full-time mum, dad  or grandparent, it can be easy to get  caught up in the 24/7 world of parenting,  with its never-ending demands and  responsibilities. Sometimes you can fi nd  yourself feeling isolated, cut off  from  your social life. Perhaps you fi nd yourself  craving some adult conversation.

has emotional benefi ts – it can be very easy to feel  depressed and unmotivated when you’re on your  own with a child. Meeting others gets you out of  the house, embracing your own identity, which  isn’t just ‘being a parent.’ Going out and mixing  with others helps beat stress too – as they say, a  problem shared is a problem halved. And if you  can incorporate some exercise into social activities,  even better!

talk to other parents. 

According to research by the University of  Sheffi  eld, social parents actually have brighter  children. Researchers looked at the social lives of  3,000 parents, examining whether they belonged  to groups such as sports clubs, voluntary or church  groups and other community associations. The  results showed that children of sociable parents  were between one and four percentage points  ahead of classmates whose parents led more  solitary lives

Building a Social Network  Meeting with other parents

Can you join an exercise class or hobby-based  activity?  Look for something that would involve  interaction - it’s no good running on the treadmill  for 30 minutes and talking to no one! This would  also give you the chance to talk to others who  aren’t necessarily parents or carers,  a chance to  engage in diff erent conversations.

If your child goes to a toddler group or playgroup,  why not arrange to meet up with other parents  and carers from the group? You could go to a café  while the children are having their social time. Or  you could invite everyone back to yours for coff ee.  It only needs one person to suggest it!

At the weekends, the whole family could visit  a local attraction or eat out, giving everyone a  chance to interact. Breaking the routine is healthy!

Joining a group

If your child goes to groups in the week, why not  look for an activity or group that you can join at the  same time?

Shopping local saves you money Out of town shops have done a good job of convincing us all that sole traders = expensive, but the evidence just isn’t there to back this up . If you add in travel, parking costs, fees to transport larger items home and your time, the overall cost is often much higher. Shopping locally retains our community People don’t like losing shops and services in small towns and villages but don’t equate this to how they spend their money. Shops will only survive if customers spend locally – so if you want a vibrant town centre, where people can socialise as well as shop, shop locally. Shopping local retains our distinctiveness Many town centres in Britain look the same with franchises and multinationals. Our independent shops create distinctive shopping experiences and stock different products. Independent shops keep traditional local products alive. Wherever you see this symbol, you are supporting your local economy

Amazing,

but if your car is up to 2 years old, most insurers won’t give you a new one if it’s written-off.

We do. If your car is written-off or stolen, most insurers will only pay for a brand new car as long as it was under a year old. We do the same if your car is up to 2 years old, even if you haven’t owned it from new. It might seem amazing, but 100 years of good business practice has shown us it’s the right thing to do.

We do right by you

Call 01775 770075 for a quote NFU Mutual Office, Springfields, Spalding, Lincs PE12 6ET Provided you own the car, or it’s on hire purchase terms. The car must be UK specification. If the model is no longer in production, we will pay out the last known manufacturer’s list price. Terms and conditions apply. Agent of The National Farmers Union Mutual Insurance Society Limited.
