Bishopsbourne & Pett Bottom You Only Live Twice

B

ishopsbourne lies five miles to the east of Canterbury along the Elham Valley Way. Like many of the villages in the area, the ‘bourne’ part of it’s name can be attributed to the Nailbourne and the Lesser Stour rising there and the ‘Bishops’ part is believed to be related to the parish being under the ownership of Archbishops for a period of time. The village’s features include Charlton Place, originally a Tudor manor house which is believed to date back to the 15th century. It is set in open parkland towards the south-east of the village and has seen a variety of uses. In more recent history, it was acquired by the Army during World War II. A 16 inch gun Big Bertha was mounted on a carriage and hidden in a railway cutting off the South Canterbury line which ran behind the house and at one time Winston Churchill visited to inspect it. After the war, the house became a children’s home for the Dr Barnardo’s charity until 1966, after which it transferred into private ownership. Today the mansion house is available for Private Functions such as Weddings & Special Events including open air theatre.

A number of well known people have lived in Bishopsbourne. The theologian Richard Hooker, who died in 1600, Kent cricket player, Sir Horace Mann. The authors Alec Waugh, Jocelyn Brooks and Joseph Conrad who donated the land that the village hall was built on. There has been a church at Bishopsbourne since before the Normans. Although the present church of St Mary’s the Virgin is believed to date from the 13th century, there are mentions of a church in the area in the Domesday book.

operated as a grocers with a licence to sell ales. From 1904 it was known as the Woodmans Arms and eventually was renamed the Duck Inn during the 1960’s. A blue plaque at the Inn highlights its links with modern history, as the author Ian Fleming spent time there writing the 13th James Bond book, You Only Live Twice.

LIF E STY L E

Go for Gold Setting yourself SMART goals in life

H

ow can you be more like an Olympic athlete? With all the excitement surrounding the Olympic Games, it’s a good time to see how the behaviour of the more than 10,000 athletes can be mirrored in our everyday lives. Top class athletes work either alone or with a sports coach to achieve goals which they set for themselves. No-one starts out as an elite athlete, it takes huge amounts of dedication, training and usually sacrifice. That dedication includes goal setting which can easily become a regular part of everyday life. Goal setting and having a training plan are part of life for the athlete. They set goals which are SMART and devise a plan to achieve them. This can be done with or without a coach but most people reach goals more easily with some support, particularly from friends and family. SMART goals are Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic and Timed. Outside of sport, successful people also set themselves goals in all sorts of areas. However the majority of people do not set goals and drift through life with no plans as they have no idea of what they

wish to be, do, or have. Setting a goal is easily done. Think of something you wish to achieve, something that is realistic and attainable. Think how you will know when that goal has been achieved. Set a deadline for completion and keep your goals in your mind by writing them down and displaying them prominently. Athletes often set goals to improve their times, or to perform in particular events. A challenging goal will give you greater satisfaction on completion. Goals should always be stated positively. Think about what you want to gain rather than what you want to lose. For example rather than saying ‘I want to lose a stone’ the goal should state what you will have achieved such as ‘I want to be physically fit’ or ‘I want to fit into a particular outfit’. Set long term and short term goals. How do you want your life to look five years from now? What do you want to do in the next few weeks and months? What would you like to achieve in your lifetime? Think of the smaller steps you will need to take to reach your desired outcome. Consider how your life will have changed when you have accomplished what you set

out to do. When you reach your goals, large or small, take time to reflect on the progress you have made. Think of what you have learnt on the way and obstacles you may have overcome. Reward yourself for the work you have put in. This will help build your confidence and encourage you to set some new inspirational and challenging goals for yourself.

Tips for achieving goals Write it down Make sure you are excited inspired and challenged by your goals - how will things be different for you when you’ve achieved them? Enlist people around you to support you in reaching your goals Make sure you will know how you’ve achieved your goal Ensure the goal is personal i.e. not imposed by someone else. Set a deadline Celebrate your success

Strode Park Foundation Kents premier charity for people with disabilities

S

et within 14 acres of beautiful grounds in the picturesque village of Herne, Strode Park Foundation is a local charity providing inspirational care and leisure services to meet the needs of children and adults with disabilities. It promotes independence, well being and choice helping people to achieve their own aspirations and live life the way they choose. Strode Park’s experience of caring extends back to 1946 when the charity was established in Sevenoaks by Basil Jones (founder and first Chairman). The purpose of starting the charity was to continue the care of a close community of young adults with physical disabilities who had been brought together during the war years. Basil Jones and a few friends decided to take up the challenge of providing them with a permanent home, as well as offering meaningful occupation, opportunity and independence. The spirit and determination of those early days has been strongly maintained in advancing the wide range of services the Foundation offers today, becoming one of the largest resource centres for

people with disabilities in Kent. The charity supports people with varying levels of disability, from those requiring a small amount of home care and support to people with more complex disabilities requiring neuro-rehabilitation or 24 hour nursing care. Following it’s successful merger with Canterbury charity Kent Kids Miles Smiles in 2011, Strode Park now offers residential, respite and day care to children with disabilities from the age of 5 years upwards. There are also a wide range of opportunities for young adults with disabilities, Strode Park’s Lifestyle Academy for independence specialises in helping people to achieve greater independence through lifeskills training programmes which can lead to work experience and supported living. Summer brings a full and vibrant leisure scene to Strode Park with holiday makers arriving for self catering holidays in purpose built holiday bungalows which have been designed for people with disabilities. There are also numerous visitors to ‘Theatre in the Park’ a charming open air theatre which is situated in the

grounds and open to the public throughout the summer months. This venue hosts a wide variety of musical entertainment to suit all tastes and all profits raised are donated towards the work of the charity. As you can see Strode Park offers so much to so many. By supporting this local charity you can make a real difference to the lives of many children and adults with disabilities. If you would like to get involved please visit the website

HOME AND GARDE NS

Garden Design A multitude of colours & textures

A

garden can be likened to an artist’s canvas. Like a painting it makes use of a multitude of colours and textures but with it come other elements such as texture, scents and in some cases, flavours. The start of a great garden is always a patch of land. But before it can become a landscaping masterpiece it must have direction. Garden design themes can help set a direction for your garden, making for a style that is coherent and unified. Here are some popular garden design ideas to inspire you. A Japanese garden is a popular theme as people are fascinated with Japanese culture. However this does not necessarily mean that the design is not timeless. Japanese gardens have been hailed the world over because of their simplicity. The designs are characterised by the use

of grass, stone and moss. The contrast between the hardness of stone and softness of grass create a complimentary effect that highlights each element. In some cases, a central focal point is emphasised, usually a bonsai tree or a Japanese Zen garden in the middle of the main garden. Closer to home, the traditional formal gardens as seen in many a stately home are known for their structure, just like the Japanese gardens. But unlike them they do not aim to recreate nature in your space. Instead, a traditional garden uses nature to create symmetrical and linear formations. Pathways can be lined with hedges, or if you have the space you could even create a small maze. Cottage Gardens, offer contrast to the defined lines of a traditional garden, making use of loosely designed beds of colourful perennials. It is also far more practical where

the plantings are based on the preference of the plants themselves. Tropical Gardens are characterised by the use of tropical plants and aim to recreate the natural scenery that you would normally find in countries like Bali, Jamaica and other warmer countries. You can add sculptures native to island nations to add character to the design. Not all gardens need to be filled with plants. As we find ourselves in the midst of another drought with hosepipe bans in force, you could consider a rock garden. In many regions of the world where there is a shortage of water it is both expensive and difficult to grow plants and keep them alive. If properly positioned, the rocks can be an adequate design piece because of the many colors and texture that they provide.

Travelling with Children Get your holiday off to a great start with these tips for a stress free journey with children

P

lanning on jetting off with the family for a well deserved holiday? If the thought of a long plane journey with your little ones is filling you with fear then don’t panic – here are some great tips and advice from Canterbury based Travel Counsellor Annabel Wilshaw on how to enjoy a stress free journey with the kids…

Having travelled frequently with a young family – my little ones are currently four and two – I have first-hand experience of the stresses many parents face when taking children abroad. Luckily we have never had any problems as such but I do have a few tricks up my sleeve to make that potentially hectic journey as relaxing and enjoyable as possible. First of all packing. Always pack extra nappies in hand luggage – enough to get you through to opening time of the local supermarket, especially if you are arriving somewhere late or just in case your luggage is delayed. Also, try making a tick list of things to look out for at the airport and whilst on the plane. This will provide a welcome distraction for the kids whilst you are checking in and getting settled.

Make the airport experience less stressful with little ones and luggage in tow by considering an overnight hotel with parking package so you can avoid an early start and relax knowing you are all close to the airport. When considering airport parking choices, it is worth paying a little more for the chauffeur parking service. It removes the need for a bus shuttle transfer from the car park and rates are often very reasonable. On board, keep them amused with a new toy or book they have not seen before. I would recommend small blocks of books, crayons and colouring book, sticker book, a small car or even a bath toy ready for using on your hols. Nothing big or expensive but something that will distract them for a while. If you wrap it up that also uses up additional time with them unwrapping it, plus it’s much more fun and exciting for them! We have all the gadgets and they work! Trunki is one of the best things, no tired little legs or moaning at airports as the kids get a ride and also their things are close to hand on board.

The Bubble bum is also great for our older child as he carries it

in Trunki so it’s always ready to get in the hire car after inflation. Worldwide, most airport taxis do not provide car seats however if you book a hire car, you might pay a bit extra but you can arrange a car seat for peace of mind. Snacks are useful to keep children occupied for a while such as dried fruit and crackers, so not just sweets and chocolate although that can also help! I usually take a packet of Weetabix away with us. It is more expensive abroad and weighs nothing so it is a back up! I also always carry a small bag of medicine such as Calpol in sachets. It’s always useful to have to hand and there is no need to find a local pharmacy in case of a problem. Eating on board meals in economy with an infant on your lap is near impossible as there is not enough room to put the tray table out. Most airline crew are very accommodating and will keep your meal hot whilst your partner eats and then you can swap the childcare. Just a few simple tips to ensure you have a great start to your family holiday - I hope they have been helpful!
