Editors’Letter Welcome to the May/June issue of Chiltern View magazine. With more restrictions lifting every few weeks, there really does seem to be a sense of optimism in the air. People are once again meeting up with loved ones and friends, visiting shops, getting pampered with a new hairdo or beauty treatment, and enjoying an al fresco meal or drink. Whichever camp you are in, the ‘can’t wait to get out and back to normal as quickly as possible’ group or the more cautious ‘happy to meet outside but not quite ready to mix properly yet’ team, it is all about what makes you feel comfortable. As we all ease back into a life prior to the pandemic, a great activity for a many of us, is the proper English picnic and this is the theme we have gone for with this issue. There are lots of beautiful places with the perfect picnic sites right on our doorstep. Many of these places have other attractions to enjoy as well, so there is

entertainment for the whole family and a brilliant day out. Why not visit https://www.chilternsaonb. org/ or https://www.visitchilterns.co.uk/ to give you some ideas. If you are going to be spending a fun day outside away from home, then make sure you get some hints of what to take with you, from our guide on page 64. You will also need lots of food to keep everyone full up and happy so our tasty recipe for dips on page 24 will make a great addition to any picnic. Of course, you can always enter our competition to win a delicious hamper courtesy of Hannah and Joe from The Deli at No5 www.thedeliatno5.co.uk and they will do all the hard work for you. Just find the piece of cheese, hidden in the magazine, before the mouse eats it, and email your answer to Coralie at salesprv@live.co.uk by Friday 4th June. Until next time

Nettlebed and Warburg Walk This is the next in a series of social-distancing walks across the Chilterns. This beautiful, stile-free walk features a nature reserve, beech woodlands and rich wildlife. Length: 6 miles (Allow 3 hours) Start & finish: The Old Kiln, Nettlebed RG9 5BA. Grid Reference SU 701 868 Access Information: Easy walking on good paths. One gradual climb between the nature reserve and Park Corner. Stile-free and no gates. Food & drink: The White Hart pub and the Field Kitchen café in Nettlebed. On route there are picnic tables at Warburg Nature Reserve Route From The Old Kiln road, turn left along The Green and follow the narrow road to a junction. Bear left on a road signposted to Magpies. The road is tarmacked to start with, but later turns into a dirt road. At the end of this road, turn left and you have come to the Warburg visitor centre. 1. From the centre, continue along the main path through the Nature Reserve for 1.5km to reach a 5-way junction. 2. Carry straight on and follow this wide track for further 1.5km path all the way until you come to a lane. Turn left along the lane to the busy main road and then right for 50m to a wide track on the left. 3. Take this track and follow it alongside the wood and open field to reach a lane. Turn left, then turn right by Digberry Farm and walk along the lane to Huntercombe End Farm.

continue until there is a junction. Turn right and follow the path until you get to the road. 5. Turn right to walk alongside the allotments, until you come to the main road. Turn left and follow the short stretch back to The Green. Points of Interest Nettlebed is most famous for the manufacture of bricks, tiles and pottery. The Grade II listed bottle kiln was used for making bricks. Probably built in the late 17th century, it would have been one of a number in the area. Warburg Nature Reserve is one of the largest nature reserves owned by Bucks, Berks and Oxon Wildlife Trust. In spring the woodland is awash with spectacular bluebells and wood anemones and a superb dawn chorus. In summer, the wide and chalk grassland are full of summer flowers, including pyramidal orchids. During the autumn there are glorious colours throughout the tree canopy, while down below grow the Chiltern gentians and an incredible 900 species of fungi. In winter, visitors can enjoy the magical frost along the valley bottom.

4. Just before the right-hand bend, turn left on a wide track through the farm buildings and follow the path (Bushes Lane) all the way until you see some houses on the left. Ignore the stile to the left and 16

Marley

This 12 year old has plenty of fun and love to share and is looking for owners who will take him on lots of nice walks and who also have a garden, as he loves to run around and play.

He is looking for new owners who will be patient with him while he finds his paws in his new home and gains confidence.

Staffordshire Bull Terrier Bruno is looking for a quiet and loving new home.

He loves companionship, so will need patient and understanding owners who can spend time with him and help him to relax and work with him on being left alone. Bruno would prefer to be the only pet in the home but, would be happy to live in a home with school age children.

20

Three year old Marley is looking for a rural home with owners who would be happy for him to have the choice of staying outdoors or coming indoors.

As he settles, he may choose to come indoors, but may prefer to stay outside so will need plenty of outdoor spaces where he can feel safe. Both pets are looking for a home at Blue Cross Lewknor. If you can give either of these pets a home please visit www.bluecross.org.uk and fill out a homefinder form.

GULP! The damaging effects of hard water are far more serious than you might think Limescale in your water supply is impacting both you and your home.

Most people just use a descaler and think no more of it. But, if you fill your kettle with hard water that also means you’re running it through your hot water boiler, washing machine, dishwasher, plumbing and you’re showering in it too! Hard Water

Your Local Theatre Competition

Anybody but a Nobody … Thame Players’ first production, as they re-open following 18 months of lockdowns, is the hilarious spoof on late Victorian society, Diary of a Nobody by George and Weedon Grossmith. First appearing as a serial in Punch in 1888-9 and published in book form in 1892, it has been hugely influential over the years, and never out of print. Described as ‘a romp’, Thame Players are delighted to be bringing the 2011 stage adaptation by Hugh Osborne to Thame between 6th – 10th July. Featuring a small cast accompanied on stage by a pianist, the Diary is a comic masterpiece, uproariously recreating the story of Charles Pooter, a middle-class bank clerk with social aspirations far beyond his status, who decides the world deserves to hear his diary. The

self-regarding Mr Pooter records daily events in the lives of himself, his wife Carrie, his feckless son Lupin, and visits by his friends Mr Cummings and Mr Gowing, in the mistaken belief that all aspects of his life are worthy of note. This is what the press said in 2011 - ‘Sensational … a rare ability to render an audience helpless with laughter and crying with emotion at the same moment … Diary of a Nobody has this in spades’ What’s On Stage. ‘This madcap show is inventive and funny’ Daily Mail • Diary of a Nobody may also be live streamed – keep checking our website for updates. Tickets for performances at The Players Theatre or live streamed are £8-10 each from www.thameplayers.co.uk Follow us on Twitter.com/thametheatre, Facebook.com/thametheatre and Instagram.com/thameplayers

Exclusive Competition For a chance to win complimentary tickets for a family of four to a Thame Players show, answer the following question:

When was Diary of a Nobody first adapted for the stage? Email your answer, along with your name and address, to Coralie at salesprv@live.co.uk by Friday June 4th.

The best reason to get up early Florence Nightingale Hospice Charity is asking everyone to set their alarm clocks for 5am on Saturday 10th July and join hundreds of others (virtually) for a dawn walk to raise crucial funds to support the Hospice. “Whilst we are disappointed not to be able to go ahead with our traditional Midnight Walk, we had such an overwhelmingly positive reaction to last year’s event that we are confident that it will be a great success and raise a fantastic amount of money to help fund local hospice care again” says Julie Chittie, Events Manager at the Charity. This year, Walkers are again asked to walk a minimum of 5 miles, wherever they want, starting at 5am on Saturday 10th July. The event is open to all, whatever your age and wherever you are in the world - last year saw lots of children (and dogs)

The Midnight Walk is a long-standing and major fundraiser for the Charity, and with their income hit so badly over the past year, they are hoping everyone will get behind them by signing up to this year’s virtual event and help to raise the thousands of pounds needed to help secure the future of local hospice care. For more information and to sign up, please visit www.fnhospice.org.uk/notthemidnightwalk or call 01296 429975.

Revolutionary Technological Breakthrough for Incontinence Launches in Thame Medical grade, technologically advanced and clinically proven treatment that works while you are fully clothed, is able to rehabilitate the pelvic floor and is available in Covid secure clinic. Urinary incontinence; an unintentional passing of urine, is an embarrassing problem suffered by many. The NHS estimates that 3-6 million people in the UK may experience urinary incontinence in some form. While the condition affects men and women, young and old, the chances of developing urinary incontinence are increased by a number of factors, including pregnancy and childbirth, as well as the onset of the menopause. It is estimated that between 30 to 40% of women will suffer from the problem at some point in their lives. While simple lifestyle changes help many, for others this is insufficient and additional help is required. ERA Skin and Laser Clinic in Thame has recently introduced a revolutionary treatment, the Emsella Chair, which tackles stress and urge urinary incontinence, non-surgically. The treatment is a medical-grade, clinically proven, physiotherapy treatment for pelvic floor rehabilitation. It substantially improves the quality of life for those suffering from serious urinary incontinence.

32

Patients sit, fully clothed, on the chair and the magnetic fields exercise the pelvic floor with the equivalent of 11,000 voluntary contractions in the 25–28-minute treatment cycle, strengthening the pelvic floor muscles and improving continence. The number of treatment cycles required is bespoke, but typically patients need an average of six treatments. Emma Rothery, Clinical Director of ERA, is heartened to have been able to bring about such a change in the quality of the lives of her patients. “We’ve been delighted with the results the Emsella Chair is achieving for our patients The Emsella Chair technology has been successfully harnessed in physiotherapy by the top athletes worldwide for muscle rehabilitation. It’s a clinically proven, life changing treatment and we are thrilled to be the only clinic in Oxfordshire offering Emsella.” 98a High Street, Thame, Oxfordshire OX9 3EH To find out more call the clinic in 01844 698441 or email info@eraclinics.co.uk. www.eraclinics.co.uk

Recipe

Chilli Glazed Salmon With Cucumber, Herb & Lime Salad Wild Alaskan salmon is an excellent source of omega-3 fats and protein. In this dish, fillets of salmon are marinated in a tangy Asian-style dressing and accompanied by a light refreshing cucumber and bean sprout salad. Accompany with some seasonal leafy greens. Preparation time: 10 minutes Cooking time: 7 minutes Ingredients 1 pickled chilli, drained (or ½ fresh deseeded chilli) 2 garlic cloves, crushed 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar 1 tbsp tamari soy sauce 2 tbsp xylitol or honey 2 boneless salmon fillets, skin on 2 tbsp lime juice 1 tbsp xylitol or honey 1 tbsp mirin Handful of bean sprouts or sprouted seeds of choice 1 cucumber, halved and thinly sliced Small handful fresh mint leaves, chopped Small handful of coriander leaves, chopped 2 spring onions, finely sliced 1 tbsp chopped cashews 38

Method 1. Place the chilli, garlic, vinegar, tamari, xylitol or honey in a food processor and process to combine. Put the salmon fillets in a shallow dish, pour over the marinade and set aside in the fridge for 30 minutes. 2. Make up the dressing by mixing the lime juice, xylitol or honey and mirin together (if using xylitol make sure it has dissolved). Put the bean sprouts, cucumber, mint, coriander, spring onions, cashews and the dressing in a bowl and toss until well combined. 3. Preheat the grill to high. Remove the salmon from the marinade. Place the salmon on a lined baking tray. Grill for about 7 minutes or until the fish is golden and just cooked through. Place the remaining marinade in a small pan and simmer to form a glaze. Pour over the cooked salmon. NUTRITIONAL INFORMATION PER SERVING: calories 305kcal, protein 23.4g, carbohydrates 26.9g (of which sugars 24.4g), total fat14.9g(of which saturates 2.6g).

We are delighted to introduce the ReSound ONE™, a World first in hearing technology, which utilises THREE microphones, enabling wearers to collect the whole sound environment just as nature intended, whilst simultaneously improving hearing in challenging noise situations, such as coffee shops, restaurants and parties.

ReSound remain at the forefront of Tinnitus treatment, and the ReSound ONE™ has features that can help alleviate Tinnitus for those suffering with the condition. There is also a suite of accessories that will allow you to connect to the TV wirelessly and to any Bluetooth device. The latest research shows that hearing health is directly connected to overall health and well-being, and it means that people who are able to hear better can engage with the world around them and live better and healthier lives. Ever increasing evidence also shows treatment of hearing loss with hearing aids can improve or limit some serious health issues like cognitive decline and dementia.

They are rechargeable, so you never have to change fiddly batteries, and they use artificial intelligence to track your environment, automatically adjusting to give you the best sound experience from one moment to the next. ReSound ONE™ redefines what a hearing aid can do. As well as providing superior speech in noise performance they can connect directly with your mobile telephone, making conversations effortless - so friends and loved ones can keep in touch.

Book Review

Coming-of-age tales By Kate Duggan Stories of grit, determination, friendship and hope Where the Crawdads Sing – Delia Owens When her mother walks out, Kya is left to fend for herself – her father too drunk or disinterested to care for a young child. Kya finds her own way in her beloved marshlands. Many years later, popular Chase Andrews is found dead. Fingers start pointing at the reclusive ‘Marsh Girl’, whose shack Chase is known to have regularly visited. Can Kya receive a fair trial by the town that turned its back on her? A powerful, lyrical read that will leave you wanting more. Girl A – Abigail Dean Lex Gracie is Girl A. The girl that survived the house of horrors. The girl that escaped and freed her siblings. Now in her twenties with a successful career, Lex is tasked with executing her dead mother’s will. She wants to turn her former home into a community centre. But to do so, she’ll need her siblings’ agreement and to confront her own past. This is far from an easy read, but it’s even harder to put down. Body of Stars – Laura Maylene Walter Like all the other girls she knows, Celeste was born with a pattern of birthmarks setting out her future, and with it, the future of her family. At some point, those birthmarks will become fixed and Celeste will enter a transition to adulthood. But this transition is a dangerous time. Can Celeste forge her own path, or is she bound to follow the road set out by 46

her birthmarks? A unique, dystopian story, with relatable characters, Body of Stars is a must read for fans of A Handmaid’s Tale, Vox and The Power. We Need New Names – NoViolet Bulawayo In some ways, Darling is like any other ten-year-old – running around with her friends, chatting about pop stars and creating mischief. But, Darling is living in a poverty-stricken area of Zimbabwe called Paradise. Her friends are dressed in rags, her school has been closed and there are few opportunities to break out. But, when Darling gets the chance to move to the USA, it’s far from the paradise she hopes for. King of Rabbits – Karla Neblett King of Rabbits is a story of a child brought up in a family ravaged by drug addiction, poverty and crime. The story is revealed by both five-yearold Kai and his teenage self. One is full of optimism; his main concern is whether he can become the fastest runner in his primary school. Fifteen-year-old Kai, however, is defined by a past tragedy and seems set to follow his parents’ mistakes. At times heartbreaking, at others hopeful, King of Rabbits is a stunningly well-executed debut novel. Careless – Kirsty Capes Bess is fifteen, a foster child and pregnant by an older teenager who isn’t interested in a full-time relationship. But, this book is about so much more. Above all, it’s about friendship, resilience and that tricky time of being a teenager and feeling like the world is against you. In Bess’s case, she has more obstacles to overcome than most teenagers, but she faces them with wry humour, bucketloads of grit and her best friend by her side. The author was in care herself and keen to widen the narrative around children in care. She’s succeeded. www.chilternviewmagazines.co.uk

Have you seen a Hedgehog recently? Hedgehogs have declined in numbers by 46% over the last 13 years, due to a range of contributing factors especially urban habitat fragmentation and the general loss of suitable environment. They are on the recently published first IUCN (The International Union for Conservation of Nature) red list for British mammals at risk of extinction in the next 20 years. Risborough Environmental Group are interested to know more about the hedgehog’s populations in the Risborough area and hope that you may be able to help. Please email us with reports of any recent or future sightings and signs over the last year and up to this winter (with details of rough date, location, what you saw etc and maybe even photos!) to regbucks@hotmail.com. We will then have data to consider and recommend habitat and other projects to improve the natural environment for the benefit of these endangered species.

widely to forage for food for up to six hours and 2km in a night. Hedgehogs are insectivores, so the best way to feed hedgehogs would actually be to encourage more insects into your garden. You can do this by leaving some areas a bit wild, planting native plants and shrubs, creating log piles, putting in bug hotels and having fresh water available (ideally a wildlife pond with a ramp for mammals to climb out).

To support hedgehogs, we need to aim to establish and preserve more suitable wildlife habitat for them in the open spaces and gardens of the Risborough area with connectivity or wildlife corridors (hedgehog streets). We can improve access between gardens by keeping gaps under gates and fences. They need space and access to roam 52

They are nocturnal and only come out at night. Our local wildlife rescue centre Tiggywinkles can help assess if a poorly looking animal out in daytime needs rescuing, so please do call them on 01844 292292 and for more info check their website https://www.sttiggywinkles.org.uk/ hedgehog-fact-sheet/ which lists do’s and dont’s to protect hedgehogs in your garden. We hope to hear from you with feedback soon! Thanks in advance from Catherine Campbell on behalf of REG. www.chilternviewmagazines.co.uk

Health

Jaw, Neck and T.M.J. problems The letters T.M.J. stand for the temporo-mandibular joint, the joint attaching the jaw to the head. You can feel it moving in front of your ears when you open your mouth. If you have pain in one or both sides of the face in these area(s), you may have TMJ dysfunction, which can be very debilitating. Musculoskeletal causes of TMJ problems include: · clenching or grinding your teeth · postural problems – affecting the position of your lower jaw & or neck. In all these cases, there is likely to be an imbalance of the muscles which control the TMJ, which, left untreated, can leave the joint vulnerable. If you have TMJ dysfunction you may feel pain in the joint(s), your jaw may click as you open and close your mouth and you may have difficulty chewing, swallowing

62

and even drinking. Other common symptoms include: · headaches · earache · neck or shoulder pain · tenderness in the jaw · ringing in the ears (tinnitus) · pain around or behind the eyes · sinus pain · dizziness and light-headedness Treatment for TMJ dysfunction depends on the cause. If it is due to postural or muscular problems, Osteopathic treatment can help to reduce your symptoms and relax any jaw muscle spasming. You may be given exercises to do after the treatment. In addition to intervention by an Osteopath, you can help ease the discomfort by advised home treatment, to relax the muscles. Ideally avoid caffeinated drinks, emotional stress where possible or chewing gum. Best wishes, David
