A FESTIVAL OF FLAVOURS

Roger Romyn the landlord of the Wheatsheaf in Chinnor is proud to announce the launch of his new Festival of Flavours. Long known for his South African roots and his ability to create Biltong 9,000 miles from its natural home, Roger has been successfully building a reputation for food, beer and music at his pub in the charming village of Chinnor for five years. Now he is ready to move on to the next step. For this change he needed a new group to support him, the return of Adam Ratcliffe after his sabbatical in the big city, working at the Trout at Wolvercote to run the kitchen and the discovery of Kelly Gadsden as the new front of house Manager, the team is complete. Now they are all focused on developing this village pub and the flavours associated with it. Over the coming weeks a stream of new ideas and foods will become available both in the pub and with the new PAGE 6

outside catering and bar facilities that the team have to offer. In pole position, will be cooking from the new oven, designed and built by Roger’s own fair hands, ‘Ella’ as she is known to the team is an artisan stone based oven, fuelled by wood and generating heats in excess of 1200F (700C). This new oven will enable Adam and Roger to create their own bread and pizzas from scratch and cook locally sourced meats to perfection. Alongside the oven is a smoker specially imported from the United States which will be used to produce home made sausages, bacon and even pastrami. Not forgetting the pizza oven that Roger had installed to allow home made pizzas to be eaten in house or served as a takeaway.

Barbecue

on a Tuesday you will find a selection of home made hand crafted meat platters on the bar. On a Wednesday Roger and Adam will have fired up ‘Ella’ for a special range of dishes including cannelloni and peri peri chicken. Thursday will become the traditional Burger night, with a range of imaginative toppings to soothe the appetite and throughout the winter months the evening for the intellectual challenge that is Quiz night. On Friday we are back to fresh fish and chips, traditional even for your foreign host. So those are some of the changes to take place in the pub, but at the same time Roger has invested in a mobile Spit Roaster and barbecue. Now he is willing to come to your house or work and prepare a South African braai, a good ole Southern Barbecue or a traditional British hog roast, the team can cater from 50 to 500 and can offer a full licensed bar with real ales, speciality lagers, wines and spirits in the comfort of your house or work. We are happy to discuss any and all opportunities whether it is a corporate function, a special anniversary or a significant birthday, the team at the Wheatsheaf can ensure it passes off in style with the best food imaginable.

These four cooking methods will form the backbone of the new expanded menu, some of the specialities from Rogers homeland, like the ever popular Future special events that boere wors sausage will remain, should already be noted Monday’s pizza night will still in your diary include: offer amazing value, but now Please mention ‘Village View’ when replying to adverts

Recipe

Cheese, Bacon and Onion Pie Perfect for a simple lunch or for an early summer picnic this savoury pie has a really rich and buttery crisp pastry and a tasty smoked bacon and onion filling. It tastes just as delicious warm or cold. Look for packs of smoked bacon pieces near the bacon rashers in the supermarket or use flavoursome Italian diced pancetta instead.

Makes 8 slices Ready in 1½ hours, plus chilling Ingredients For The Pastry 225g plain flour 1 tsp mustard powder Pinch of salt 115g butter, chilled and diced 4-5 tbsp iced water For The Filling 175g smoked bacon pieces 4 onions, peeled and thinly sliced 1 tbsp sunflower oil 200g mature Cheddar cheese, grated Beaten egg, to glaze Tomato salad, to serve (see Tip) 1 To make the pastry, sift the flour into a large bowl and stir in the mustard powder and salt. Add the diced butter and rub into the flour between your fingertips until the mixture resembles coarse breadcrumbs. 2 Stir in enough of the iced water with a round bladed knife to mix to a crumbly dough. Knead very lightly until just smooth then flatten into a disc and wrap in cling film. Chill for 20-25 minutes. PAGE 8

3 Meanwhile, prepare the filling. Dry-fry the bacon pieces in a large non-stick frying pan for 4-5 minutes until just golden. Remove with a slotted spoon and set aside. Add the oil and sliced onions to the pan and fry gently, stirring occasionally, for about 15 minutes until the onions are very tender and pale golden. Leave to cool. Preheat the oven to 190°C, 375°F, Gas Mark 5. Place a baking sheet in the oven to heat up. 4 Roll out just over half the pastry on a lightly floured surface and use to line a 20x30cm loose-based fluted flan tin. Layer the bacon, onions and grated cheese in the pastry case and season between the layers with freshly ground black pepper. 5 Roll out the rest of the pastry and use to cover the filling. Seal the edges of the pastry with water then pinch them tightly together with fingertips. Trim off any excess pastry. 6 Brush the pastry with the beaten egg and pierce 3-4 holes in the top of the pie to allow the steam to escape. Bake on the hot baking sheet for 25-30 minutes until the pastry is crisp and golden. Serve warm or cold with tomato salad, if liked. TIP Serve simply with a fresh tomato salad made by thickly slicing ripe vine tomatoes and layering with finely chopped spring onions and a few fresh basil leaves. Drizzle with a little olive oil and season with freshly ground black pepper.

It’s the perfect place for inspiration, whether you’re a complete novice or a professional – there are design ideas by the bucketful! Our formal and rose gardens, river walk, lily canal and classical herbaceous border are just a few highlights of a trip to Waterperry, and there’s always something new to see – whatever the season!

Our garden shop offers a wide range of gardening goods and sundries, as well as gift ideas for the green – and not so green-fingered, and our Waterperry grown and pressed apples and juice. We also sell high quality furniture, stoneware water features, pots and sculptures outside in the Furniture Barn and Plant Centre. We take huge pride in growing most of the plants we sell at Waterperry, so you can be sure of their pedigree.

Monthly Focus May Day

Celebrations have been carried out in England for over 2000 years, being a traditional day of festivities associated with the beginning of springtime. It probably originated as a roman festival to enjoy the coming of summer after a long winter season.

Crowning a May Queen is also a fun activity and she will often sit at the front of a parade wearing a white gown to symbolise purity and of course a lovely crown or tiara. It is her job to start the May Day celebrations.

Popular activities include dancing around a Maypole which has coloured ribbons hanging from the top and dancers (often young children) form patterns down the pole with a complex sequence of movements around it.

Indeed it was convenient in days past to give farm labourers a day off, as seeding would have been completed by this date and now we have a special bank holiday in May where we can all enjoy these springtime treats.

The first day of the month of May is historically known as May Day.

Questionnaire:

Solar Enabled Noise Barriers on M40 In Summer 2009 we consulted local residents, about the effect of motorway traffic noise on your lives. Of 1000 people who responded, over three quarters told us they suffered from motorway noise virtually always or most of the time.

Benefits, as we see them, as improved barriers are built:

You asked us to ‘please do something about it’. We believe that, with your continued support, we can now see a way forward. While nothing is certain yet, and current proposals do not address issues everywhere, we need your views. Proposal for solar enabled noise barriers M40 Jn3 – Jn8. In partnership with the Highways Agency and our local Councils (Wycombe and South Oxfordshire Districts) M40CEG is preparing a business plan for improving noise barriers at many of our communities (and building new barriers at some communities that do not currently have any noise protection). If we are successful, the complete project comprises construction of about 8km (5 miles) of noise barrier at communities along the 35Km (20 miles) stretch of the M40 between Loudwater (Jn 3) and Wheatley (Jn 8). PAGE 34

• reduced traffic noise • motorway traffic no longer visible • properties more easily sold, perhaps at higher prices • low risk tax efficient investment opportunity preferentially offered to local people Please complete the questionnaire on the other side in order for us to gauge the feeling of our communities and return it to: Wycombe District Council, your local or complete the survey through the website www.m40-chilterns.org.uk or email it to us at m40cc@btinternet.com

Easy ways to protect your PC How to avoid a digital disaster

These days, we’re doing more and more things digitally: our holiday snaps sit on hard disks, our music is often in MP3 and we’re as likely to download films as buy them on disc. That’s great when your PC’s working perfectly, but how do you make sure it stays that way? Protecting your PC falls into three key categories: protecting your valuable data, protecting your PC from online threats and protecting your PC from physical damage. Protecting the hardware is the easy bit. Surge protectors can prevent nasty spikes in the electricity supply from causing any damage, and if you have a laptop you can buy a Kensington Lock to secure it to something suitably hefty. A compressed air canister can blow dust out of fan vents and debris out of keyboards, and it’s a good idea to keep your PC away from extremes of temperature - a sunny room in summer is a terrible place to keep a PC. Be particularly aware of potential spills: liquid can destroy computers and you won’t believe the damage a tin of baby food can do to a keyboard. It’s a very good idea to keep food and drink and PCs separate. No matter how careful you are, computers can and do break: every hard disk will wear out eventually. That’s why it’s really important to keep backup copies of anything important such as family photographs, home videos or iTunes downloads. You can do this in several ways - using an online service such as Mozy (www.mozy.co.uk) or Skydrive (skydrive.live.com), by burning them to DVD or by copying them to an external hard disk, but remember that if your backup is in the same place as the original, a domestic disaster such as a burst pipe might ruin both of them. PAGE 36

It’s worth remembering too that services such as Facebook won’t compensate you if they accidentally delete or damage your online photo libraries; once again make sure that if it’s important, you have more than one copy in case of disaster. The other issue to worry about is “malware”, which is software designed to do nasty things. Sometimes malware spies on you, trying to obtain your passwords and other details; other times it just damages files or slows your PC to a crawl. The good news is that it’s relatively easy to avoid: Windows 7 and Windows 8 both have firewall software, which can prevent nasties getting in, and if you’re suspicious you can avoid most malware. Don’t open unsolicited email attachments from people you don’t know, and don’t let fake emails from the bank fool you: your bank will never send you programs or zipped documents in an email. Always make sure you’re downloading from reputable sources, such as Microsoft.com, not Big Dave’s Totally Honest Download Page and make sure your web browser software is up to date. Old browsers are a real security risk. Last but not least, invest in some security software. You don’t need to spend any money - Microsoft’s Security Essentials is free (www.microsoft.com/ security_essentials/), as is AVG Free anti-virus (free.avg.com) and AVAST (www.avast.com), and there are also free tools to tune up your PC. One of our favourites is CCleaner (www.piriform.com/ ccleaner), which works miracles on sluggish PCs, and we’d also recommend the free Ad-Aware program (www.lavasoft.com) to prevent annoying software setting up shop on your PC. Keeping your PC safe isn’t difficult, time-consuming or expensive, but it’s worth doing. Think of PC protection like home insurance: you hope you’ll never need it, but if disaster strikes you’ll be glad you have it.

Book Review

How to Win Friends From the playground to the workplace, we all know we’re not going to get by without a little help from our friends. But how do we go about forging those friendships in the first place? When Dale Carnegie wrote ‘How to Win Friends and Influence People’, he was instantly onto a winner. Surely everyone just wants to be liked? We’ve put together a collection of stories where a friendship is central. And it just goes to show, bonds can be formed in the most unlikely of places.

Of Mice and Men John Steinbeck

George Milton and Lennie Small are two migrant workers who dream of owning their own farm. George is intelligent but uneducated and Lennie is a great hulk of a man; physically strong but mentally weak. This unlikely pairing sees George acting as a calming influence and father-figure to Lennie. Set during the Great Depression, the pair is forced out of the aptly-named ‘Weed’, California after Lennie’s fondness for touching ‘soft things’ lands him in trouble. Chasing the elusive American Dream, George must decide what kind of a future their friendship can have.

The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas John Boyne

Bruno is the son of an SS officer and is also a natural-born explorer, so it’s no surprise that when his family moves to ‘Out With’, he has a lot of questions about the children who appear behind the barbed wire fence wearing blue striped pyjamas. Bruno meets Shmuel, who lives the other side, has a shaved head and is constantly hungry and the two form a friendship that will have devastating consequences. Boyne’s children’s book about concentration camps is a PAGE 42

must-read for all adults. It will stay with you for days, weeks and months afterwards, just as it should.

The Help Kathryn Stockett

This is the story of three women: Skeeter, Aibileen and Minny, and their attempts to change the social structure and confines of a segregated Mississippi in the 1960s. Young Skeeter is a white woman with a degree, but no husband. She’s also lost her maid and confidante, ‘Constantine’ and nobody can tell her where she’s gone. Aibileen is a black maid who is essentially raising a white woman’s child for her, whilst grieving for her own dead son. Meanwhile Minny is a fantastic cook but an even greater gossip. Between them, the three plan to write and publish their own stories, revealing social scandals and ‘tellin’ it like it is’. It’s brilliant, and worth reading just to hear the revelation of the ‘terrible awful’. That’s a laugh-out-loud moment in itself.

The Joy Luck Club Amy Tan

Before Carrie Bradshaw et al, four Chinese women began meeting in San Francisco to compare notes as recent immigrants. It was 1949 and they called themselves ‘The Joy Luck Club’. The women were bound together by circumstance and history, vowing to make money and a new life for themselves. It’s a complex and delicately interwoven tale of Chinese mothers and daughters, revealing secrets and lies and all striving to find a place in the modern world whilst feeling the constant tug of their past. If you’ve never read Tan before then this is a brilliant place to start.

Gardening

Garden Hide and Seek However much effort you make with your garden, you can be sure that there will still be a few things that look awful. You may have made (or hope to make) beautiful borders, sensational shrubbery and lots more besides, but how do you cope with those things you just cannot seem to hide? A washing line: It may be essential but it rarely adds to the appeal of the garden. If yours is like mine and consists of two large poles with a line between them, try growing a pretty climber up the poles. If you use a self clinging plant such as variegated ivy it will do its own thing without any form of additional support. Alternatively make a chicken wire, trellis ‘box’ or frame around the posts and then allow the climber to scramble up, using plant ties if necessary too. Summer flowering clematis will look great or you could make a seasonal display for summer only using pretty climbers such as sweet peas. If you do use one of the more vigorous climbers then be prepared to do some intermittent pruning to ensure that it does not use your washing line as a plant support. A decrepit shed or moth-eaten garage: Garden buildings may be useful but all too often they are also a real eyesore. Sometimes a thorough scrub of the walls will do the trick, or why not make a feature out of the shed or garage and re-paint it – perhaps using a masonry paint or wood paint that tones in with existing garden structures, the colour of your window frames or perhaps simply a colour that tickles your fancy. Consider erecting a trellis on one or more of the vertical surfaces and grow a selection of favourite climbers up it to make an even more attractive feature. If the garden is inclined to be a little gloomy then it helps if you paint any surfaces such as garage or shed walls with a paler colour – it is amazing just how much light this will bounce back into your garden. Heating fuelled by gas from a huge cylinder or oil from a large green tank: I’m the owner of one of the mammoth green metal tanks and as much as I enjoy a well-heated house I detest the tank and PAGE 56

because it has to be sited in an accessible position so it can be re-filled with relative ease; you cannot lose it in the depths of the garden. I use hazel wattle hurdles to hide ours, which are perfect as they also match with the adjacent boundary fence. You could use standard fence panels in the same way and again planting them with climbers or scramblers will help. Whatever you do, make sure that you check on it from time to time and remove excessive climber growth so that the tank remains accessible. Is it the neighbouring garden that harbours the eye sore which makes you want to retreat back into your house? Something nasty next door is of course even harder to conceal but why not add a layer of trellis to the top of your existing fence and then use climbers once it is in position. Hold the trellis in position using batons of wood attached to the existing fence posts or special post-joining metal sleeves that you can buy from your fencing supplier or garden centre. Trellis is available in a range of shapes and need not be straight edged so you can create a range of different looks to suit your gardening style. Another option is to erect a pergola or arch to obscure or break up an unsightly view or the eyesore in their garden and adding plants will help to add a bit more height and soften the outline. If you combine some of your favourite flowering climbers with some evergreen planting too, you should even achieve good effects during the seasons when the leaves have fallen from many plants.

sails turning (as always this will depend on weather conditions on the day). This is part of National Mills Weekend which is co-ordinated by the Mills Section of the Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings. Our Village Horticultural Society will have their plant and produce stall by the windmill on Sunday 12th May, they will also be open from 11am. The windmill is the oldest smock mill in the country and since 1971 has been restored back to working order by members of The Chiltern Society. Due to the fragile nature of the 360 year old wooden machinery, we do not use the mill to produce flour. Please park in Pink Road and walk up the path on the right hand side of The Whip pub. Alternatively Arriva Bus 300 runs hourly on Sundays between High Wycombe and Aylesbury, and stops by the path to the windmill. For further details about the windmill, including a map and more travel information, please see our website at www.laceygreenwindmill.org.uk Studley Green Community Centre The AGM of the Community Centre @ Studley Green will take place at the centre on Monday 20th May at 7pm for a 7-30pm start.

We field 2 teams in the Kookaburra Mid-Bucks League which plays 40 matches (each side) on Saturdays. New plans have been implemented to improve the pavilion, pitch and grounds, new nets, develop a youth team initially for 12 to 16 year olds and construct a WEB site. We have had much support and encouragement from the Lane End Parish Council, Coffee Cup in Wycombe and the Angus Lawson Memorial Trust. It is fortunate we have the services of the groundsmen from Wormsley Cricket Ground, Andy Wallis and Simon Tremmers, who have restored the square and it is now one of the best in the league. However to put the rest of the plans into place we need new people to become involved. In particular we are looking for someone to help with the Youth Team and Youth Team players (age 12- 16) . Finally, we are looking for any other kind of support to help the Club develop its plans. This can be help with management, fundraising, organising events, running WEB sites or sponsorship. A part-time Umpire is also required. If you would like to find out more please contact Neil May, Chairman, on 01494 882486 or email lilli.neil@zen.co.uk

Stokenchurch Annual Parish Meeting The Annual Parish Meeting will take place at Longburrow Hall at 7.30pm on Wednesday 8th May. All are welcome to come along and hear the Chairman’s Annual Report for the last year, and to put questions to the representatives of the various local organisations.
