Bridge and Patrixbourne Manor houses and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang

T

he village of Bridge has been an important village since the Roman occupation of England.

It’s very likely that there was a Roman bridge across the river Nailbourne, it is the first river crossing out of Dover and provided a convenient stopping point. The core of the present bridge consists of a double arch, now this can sadly only be seen from the river bed. The Nailbourne flows under the bridge and the name ‘bourne’ indicates intermittent stream. Legend has it it flows every seven years. The church is a major feature of the village, standing at the east end of the High Street, it is in characteristic flint. It retains some of the Norman features for example in the west door. One feature of Bridge is the large manor houses nearby, for example, Bridge Place, Higham Park and Bridge Hill House. Higham Park was one of the largest country houses in east Kent in the 17th century. Count Zborowski of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang fame lived there in the last century. It was

used as a hospital for a while and then was abandoned to be re-discovered by two ladies who renovated it and opened it up to the public. The gardens are 24 acres in total and some 6 acres are laid to formal gardens with an Italianate water garden and a sunken rose garden designed by Harold Peto. The current owners wish it to remain private so it is currently hidden from public view. The centre of the village is a conservation area and has many buildings of historical interest. The post office is where Field Marshal Lord Kitchener sent his first despatch at the start of World War 1. The Plough and Harrow public house was built in 1692 and became an alehouse in 1832. The headquarters of Bridge Fire Brigade used to

be at the rear. The Red Lion was built in 1593 and used to have an extensive stabling and carriage business. The White Horse has a late medieval core with an 18th century exterior. Bridge is lucky enough to have a good number of businesses, an excellent butchers, a post office and pharmacy, a mini market, two hairdressers, a doctor and a dentist. It retains it’s unique identity despite it’s proximity to Canterbury and has a strong sense of community in part due to the number of community groups and activities that go on. There are active Scouts, Guides, Beavers etc, a horticultural society, a history society, a W.I. and numerous church groups, mainly run by dedicated teams of volunteers who give up their time to make the village prosper. In recent years a thriving Farmers Market has been set up bringing in 150-200 people to the village to shop for local goods on the second and fourth Saturday. The market has provided stalls for 55 different local businesses since it started in 2010.

Around the museum are over 30 exciting hands-on activities for families, you can write your name in Viking runes, sniff medieval poo, investigate finds like an archaeologist, try on Elizabethan costume and listen to wartime memories.

FOOD AND DRINK

Children’s Menu Healthy, tasty and fun lunch boxes

M

y mum used to make me jam or cheese sandwiches, that was it, no other choice. Luckily I have found a way of making my children’s lunch boxes healthy, tasty and fun. Carbohydrates for Energy Wholemeal bread filled with ham, salad, cheese or turkey Pitta bread and granary rolls filled with cucumber, salmon, tuna or low fat cream cheese Pasta salad made with cherry tomatoes, fresh herbs and crème freche Wraps filled with chicken, salad, grated cheese and tomato or roast beef Fruit Smoothie, fruit sticks, dried fruit, sliced fruits or whole fresh fruit or slices of cucumber and carrot. Dairy Sliced cheese or cheese portion or yogurt. If the milk option is available from school, it is important to offer this. Handy Hint! Always include at least 2 portion sizes of fruit or vegetables, include a carbohydrate option with a low fat protein such as ham, turkey or eggs, a dairy option and always be sure to include a drink. I do find that children are a lot less fussy with eating if they are involved in the cooking process.

Cooking is such a wonderful activity to do with children. There are loads of skills that they learn from cooking as well as teaching them the understanding of food and its origin. Cooking with your children is therapeutic and it creates a strong bond. If you are at a loose end in the school holidays and not sure of what to do with them, get cooking or alternatively you could send them to cookery classes, they will learn and have great fun at the same time. Basic Skills Heres some ideas that you could teach to your under 5’s, it might seem a bit of a chore but the children will absolute love it. Buttering a slice of bread and making their own cucumber sandwich for lunch Cracking eggs by tapping the centre of the egg over the rim of a small bowl, then using thumbs to pull the two halves apart Decorating fairy cakes or biscuits by spreading on the icing butter or just adding the sprinkles or toppings Kneading and rolling out dough using a rolling pin Cutting shapes out using cookie cutters and baking cookies Using a sieve, by holding over a larger bowl and gently shaking Cutting soft fruit or vegetables, such as a banana, with a non sharp knife Grating cheese and especially good if you’ve got a rotary grater Crushing biscuits for bases or

Non cook chocolate recipes, in a plastic bag with a rolling pin Rubbing in butter and flour for crumble. Crushing garlic in a garlic press Greasing & lining cake tins Mashing bananas with the back of a fork for banana bread/cake Mashing potato with a potato masher Peeling vegetables with a vegetable peeler Tips on Cooking with your Children Choose recipes carefully with easy things to do for the little ones. Don’t choose complicated or long recipes Plan ahead, make sure you have all the ingredients and equipment required. Allow plenty of time, children take about 3 times longer than adults to create their masterpieces and yes there will be mess but wear an apron and don’t fret over it, another vital skill in life is to learn how to clean up after ourselves. Talk about the origin of ingredients such as dairy, meat and vegetables As children get older they will become more and more skilled and you will have passed on a vital life skill. Today 8 out of 10 kids leaving home cannot cook a balanced meal!! Do not let your children become a statistic. If you are worried about time or the relevant skills you could look into taking some adult cooking classes too.

When it comes to rolling out the carpet, Lenleys has gone green The Canterbury furnishing store’s range of soft flooring now includes a carpet made out of bottles, carpet manufacturer Mohawk collects more than 3 billion plastic bottles a year and recycles them into small flakes known as PET chips.

These in turn are then processed to create a fibre that gets dyed and turned into carpets. “Knowing that the carpet you’re walking on is totally recycled is just a great way of staying literally in touch with the environment, it’s amazingly soft and looks superb” Salesman Mark Finch

Picture worth a thousand words

Photography by Alex Hare anterbury’s Leading photographer Alex Hare is running a series of hands on photography workshops for people with digital cameras who want to learn how to use them. Alex’s workshops are aimed at people who want to master their cameras settings and improve their photography, whether it’s pictures of friends, family or holiday images. Alex says: “many people have a great camera but are unsure how to take control of it. They know they can take great pictures but aren’t sure how to set the camera or how to use the lenses effectively. I run people through the basic theory and a series of fun practical shoots so we can master our cameras settings for each shot we want to take, from portraits to landscapes.” Alex’s fun and relaxed style of teaching has made him a popular teacher and he’s run workshops at schools and universities in Kent before deciding to lay on his own workshops for 2012. Alex’s Workshops Photoshop This workshop is aimed at those who wish to learn all about post production and digital editing techniques. Learn how to make the most of digital cameras and capture the best ‘data’ in the files prior to applying some effective post production processing to maximize the quality of your photographs, whether they be intended as prints or for websites like Facebook..

Basic Digital Photography Skills Masterclass: If the settings on your camera are confusing or you don’t know how to get the best out of your camera this course is for you. We will learn the principles of composition, exposure, f stops, ISO’s and shutter speeds in the comfort of the classroom before we head out to some great locations I know of to put our new skills into practice. I will also help you think more creatively about your photography so you can start to produce the photographs that reflect your own creative vision. Tripod Travels A photography holiday company run by Alex Hare and Lizzie Shepherd taking keen photographers to stunning locations around Great Britain and Northern Greece. Packed with helpful insights and training in photography skills these workshops are a mixture of fun and creativity as you become engrossed in your craft over the course of the tour. Suitable for anyone with a camera and an interest in outdoor photography looking to meet like minded people and see some spectacular scenery in the best conditions at the best time of year.

LIF E STY L E

The Perfect Picture Background, light and perspective...

T

aking photos is something we all do, but how many of us know how to do it well?

Yes, it helps to have a good camera, a digital SLR ideally, but even if you were to purchase the most expensive SLR on the market you would soon find, that if you don’t use a few basic rules, your results will be no better than your disposable camera. Give a professional photographer a basic point and shoot camera and they will produce images that look as good as those they take with their SLR. The obvious difference being the quality and clarity of the image, however, what they capture and how they capture it will all be exactly the same. Some of the basic rules you can work to, be it on your smart phone or new SLR are: Use the rules of thirds Imagine that your image is divided into 9 equal segments by 2 vertical and 2 horizontal lines (some cameras give you the option to use a grid like this when taking the photo) position the most important elements in your scene along these lines, or at the points where they intersect. By doing this you will add interest to your photo. Choose your background wisely If you have a busy background or there is a lot going on behind your subject then this will

distract or detract from what you are trying to capture. Find an unobtrusive background, something simple and plain or sometimes bold and bright, just so long as its not too ‘busy’ Look at the light This may sound obvious but you need to pay attention to where the light is. If you don’t have it facing the subject you will just end up with a silhouette. Having said that, if you have a flash then backlit shade can be a beautiful background to a photo. Perspective Walk around your subject to find the best point of view to capture it. You can look at your subject from a lower or higher angle to get a different perspective. This will also help you to see where the light is falling as previously mentioned.

Get down to the same level as the kids or pets and see what a difference it makes. I am a photographer but I don’t always have my SLR with me, so I’m so glad that my smart phone does a pretty good job. I also like the fact that I can edit them within all the different apps available and then add them straight to my social networking sites. I use an iPhone and here are a few of my favourite apps for adding different effects. Instagram, Hipstamatic, Snapseed and My Film. If you are looking to take photography a little more seriously or just want to learn more about what your camera does then there are a few websites that I would recommend. Camera Labs is a great one for getting advice from professionals within the forums and for informative and detailed reviews on cameras. Flickr is a fantastic site and a great place to meet new friends that are interested in the same thing. You can join groups specific to the area of photography you are interested in. Finally, the best advice I can give you is practise and research. There is so much information available on the web so make the most of it. Use your camera’s manual settings and then if something didn’t work, find out why. It’s the best way to learn.

Skiing Holidays It’s not just all about Skiing!

A

re you considering a family ski holiday in 2012/2013? If so, now is a great time to book. Many operators have early booking discounts and some have free child places on offer. However, if you have not been before, it may all seem a little daunting with so much to think about. Don’t let that get in the way of a fantastic family holiday. With these explanations and handy tips, you will hopefully be limbering up for the slopes in no time! Location, Location, Location Europe is generally favoured by families with many resorts catering for a range of abilities in France, Austria, Italy, Bulgaria and Scandinavia amongst others. Travel is possible by air, train or self- drive dependant on your resort. There are a range of accommodation options from catered chalets, full service hotels and self catering apartments. Self catering for your family is a convenient and cost effective way to go, but if you are learning to ski yourself, think about whether you also want to be shopping and cooking. Eating out every day will add up. If you have young children, a hotel with a set meal time of 8pm might be too late. If they do an earlier children’s sitting, check there is also a crèche or babysitting / monitor service so you can enjoy your meal too. A catered chalet is a great option for a family, after a day skiing or being out in the snow, it is great

to know that your evening meal is being taken care of. Breakfast & afternoon tea are usually served also. Chalet sizes range from 4-6 guests upwards so it is possible to reserve a smaller chalet exclusively for your family or just a room or two in a larger chalet. North America & Canada is popular for it’s great snow and there are relatively few people on the slopes, (Europe can become busy especially during school holidays) however the journey time should be taken into consideration as well as the higher cost of lift passes. Generally, accommodation is in a hotel or purpose built apartment on a self-catering or breakfast only basis. It is worth considering if you particularly want to stay in a traditional (Alpine) town or a purpose built resort as well as choosing a resort with pistes to suit your whole family’s abilities. With children, you inevitably end up carrying their skis as well as your own. Opt for central accommodation or within a reasonable distance to the resort centre / chair lift / ski school meeting point. For younger children, a kids club or crèche should be a consideration so you can ski at ease knowing they are being looked after by qualified staff. When to Go? The European season usually starts around 3rd week of December.

For North America & Canada it can be a little earlier and it ends around mid April. Within the school calendar, this generally affords 3 opportunities to travel, each with their advantages Christmas & New Year ever fancied a guaranteed white Christmas?! February half term (usually great snow as mid season but can also be busy and is the most expensive) Easter holidays (depending on dates). Spring skiing delivers blue skies & bright sunshine which means it is warmer for the little ones and they will not be put off by their first ski experience. Apres Ski This may not be the top of your list when considering a family holiday as it often conjures up thoughts of visiting bars and restaurants after a hard day on the slopes. But in fact, Apres Ski encompasses any activity in a ski resort other than skiing itself. In many larger resorts, you will find a range of leisure activities such as a municipal swimming pool, ice skating rink, ski-mobiling & a bowling alley to name a few. Additional resort activities often appeal to older children & teens. Trips are also possible from resorts to nearby attractions, such as a major town or city, spotting the northern lights, visiting Santa Claus or the Ice Hotel in Finland. Some activities may determine the best time to travel for your family.

Family News Emily Guille-Marrett, local mum and publishing entrepreneur bringing you a roundup of family news. Starting School is an exciting

time for you and your child. I spoke to Susanne Howell, a teacher at Parkside Community Primary School in Canterbury, for advice on getting ready for the big day. The first few days at school can be exhausting for a child. Make sure she or he gets a good sleep every night followed by a healthy breakfast in the morning. Encourage your little one to dress themselves so they are confident doing this at school - Velcro shoes can be very useful. It is also advisable to supply a little bag of spare clothes in case of any accidents. Sharing books together can be a good way to talk about school. But don’t be surprised if your daughter or son doesn’t want to talk about it. Sometimes they have been so busy in those first few days that they just want to relax and play when they get home. Above all, try not to worry. And, however tempting it is, don’t hang around when you’ve dropped your child off. If after a few days your daughter or son seems persistently unhappy about an issue, go and talk to her/his teacher. The chances are all will be well and remember your child’s teacher is there to help.

Canterbury Beaney Art Museum and Library

re-opens this month following an extensive £14 million renovation and extension project. A new gallery is dedicated to the work of one of Canterbury’s most famous artists, Sidney Thomas Cooper. Additional galleries will display over 1000 objects, many of which are from the permanent collection and have never been seen before. Families are encouraged to explore the Beaney through their new website and to register for the family-friendly opening weekend events on Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th September. The new library is sure to play an important role in family life. There’s a private room for registering births and a wealth of resources available to research local and family history. From baby board books to picture books and graphic novels to teenage fiction, children of all ages are sure to find an engaging read. There is also a wealth of different media to entertain them too, including ebooks and DVDs. Look out for a varied programme of events including parent and toddler story time and visiting author events.

East Kent Maternity Services, It has been an

unsettling time for mums and dads-to-be with the maternity services review. Following the announcement in April of the closures at Canterbury and Dover birthing centres, the latest news is that St Peter’s midwifery led unit at Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother hospital is due to open in September. Services should also improve at The Singleton Midwifery led unit at Ashford Hospital. Your midwife will be able to offer you the latest information, so do ask. Please feedback your experience of our local maternity services to the East Kent Maternity Liaison Group. Or why not become a parent representative yourself? The group meets bimonthly at the Thannington Resource Centre, Canterbury. Alternatively you can post on their Facebook page or contact hannah.price@eastcoastkent.nhs.uk or call 01227 795017.

HOME AND GARDE NS

A Trusted Tradesman To get that job done!

I

f you believe what you see on TV then everyone is a Rogue Trader or Cowboy Builder.

But if you follow these rules and you’ll find a professional, reliable, competent and trustworthy tradesman you’ll be confident in recommending to your friends. Recommendations Good tradesman get the majority of their work via recommendation from previous customers. Use websites such as mybuilder. com where feedback is left regarding previous work or trustmark.org.uk for tradesmen who meet government endorsed standards. Don’t be afraid to ask for references or evidence of previous work. If they have nothing to hide they’ll be more than happy to provide you with the details of customers who are happy to sing their praises. Never employ door step traders. If someone knocks on your door and tells you they were passing and noticed that you needed some repairs to your roof, windows, guttering, then politely thank them and suggest they leave their business card. You might indeed have a problem that needs attention, but call a reputable tradesman to assess it and, if necessary get quotes for any work required.

Don’t be pressured into work which isn’t necessary or not what you want. Research If possible do some research prior to calling a tradesman. The more information you have about what a job might entail, the type of materials and products available and a rough idea of what they could cost. This sort of information should mean you are less likely to be caught out or pay for goods or services you didn’t need. A good tradesman will be happy to suggest ideas, solutions and provide advice, but the clearer you are with what you want, the more likely you’ll be 100% satisfied. Don’t forget it’s your house and you’ll have to live with it! Quotation Always ask for a quote rather than an estimate. It should always be on headed paper with full company details, a job description and all costs. If possible get 3 quotes, so you can easily see if someone is far too cheap or wildly expensive. Avoid tradesmen who give you a quote over the phone without assessing the job at your property. Be wary of ‘cash’ jobs, which can often mean they’re off the books, so no receipt, no record of the work and more importantly no comeback if it all goes wrong!

Check their credentials Are they who they say they are? Ask for ID. For that extra peace of mind, some tradesmen are CRB (Criminal Records Bureau) checked, don’t be afraid to ask. Are they insured? Is the work guaranteed and if so for how long? Are they qualified to carry out the work? Ask to see certificates or documents. If they don’t have it with them, then they probably don’t have them at all. Never pay for work upfront For small jobs you should only pay on completion of the work to your satisfaction. For larger jobs payments may be staged according to the progress of the work, or an initial payment might be requested to cover materials. However make sure everything is agreed in writing beforehand. Above all ask for an invoice for work completed and a receipt. No paper work means no guarantee or comeback for you. This isn’t an exhaustive list, and a bit of common sense goes a long way. So if you simply don’t feel comfortable about a tradesman, politely thank them for their time and don’t employ them. Remember, it’s your house, your safety and your satisfaction that is the most important thing.

Porchlight Changing attitudes Changing lives Don’t just walk past

A

recent count of rough sleepers showed Canterbury to have the highest number of people sleeping rough in the county, with 22 people typically bedding down in the city on any given night. The statistics were produced by homelessness charity Porchlight, which has its head office and several homelessness services based in the city. Now the charity has launched a campaign that puts the power to help into the hands of members of the public. The “Don’t Just Walk Past – Tell Us” campaign gives you the option of calling a 24-hour helpline number 0800 567 76 99 or completing a form on the charity’s website www. porchlight.org.uk/tellus when you see someone sleeping rough. You will be asked some simple questions about the person you have seen so that the specialist rough sleeper team, one of the largest in the country, can easily locate and identify them. The online form can even be accessed from a smartphone.

can find even more vulnerable people. Chris Coffey, strategic manager for the charity’s rough sleeper team, says that the campaign is keen to find people that are new to the streets: “A large number of homeless people are currently staying on friend’s sofas or in unsuitable temporary accommodation. All too quickly they can drop on to the streets when their welcome runs out. If someone has to sleep rough for too long they can become entrenched in that lifestyle and develop further issues such as drug or alcohol dependency.

person as quickly as possible. Mr. Coffey said: “We will invite the person to a safe place such as a local day centre run by one of our partner agencies. This will give us an opportunity to really talk to the rough sleeper and get a clear idea of their support needs. From there we can decide whether they would be best placed into supported accommodation or somewhere more independent.. To find out more about Porchlight’s work visit

We want help from the public to find people quickly and prevent their situation from becoming even worse. We also know that helping someone in the early stages saves the public purse a significant amount of money in the long run.” When the charity receives information about a rough sleeper, the team will try to find and engage with that

Porchlight conducts regular early morning street outreach sessions in Canterbury to locate and engage with rough sleepers but hopes that extra intelligence from the public will mean they

Rotary International Our motto ‘Service before Self’

R

otary International is a well renowned organisation, which generates much needed money for international, national and local charities and provides charitable services locally. A motto of Service before Self should tell you much about the people involved. Efforts of Rotary are directed towards Peace and conflict prevention / resolution Disease prevention and treatment (Rotary International has been instrumental in eradicating polio in India, with no new cases reported in the previous 12 months.) Water and sanitation Maternal and child health Basic education and literacy Economic and community development

All Rotary clubs aim to serve their community and those in need through club service projects, members learn more about local and international issues, and can volunteer their time and talents where they are most needed. Recent projects that Whitstable Rotary has supported include the Joy Lane swimming pool renovation, Westbere Sailing Opportunities, 5th Whitstable Scout Group, Kiswa education centre in Uganda, Tools With a Mission and Hounds for Heroes. The club has also given local children, those who perhaps wouldn’t normally get the chance for one reason or another, the opportunity to visit the Playhouse Whitstable to see a pantomime and also organised a Christmas party, including food, drink and disco, to a large group of local people with learning disabilities, giving their many carers an evening’s respite.

Our Club meets for an evening meal every Tuesday at 6pm for 6.30pm at Chestfield Golf Club. This gives members the opportunity to build friendships, enrich their professional and personal knowledge, and meet other business leaders in their community. Members are welcome to attend meetings at any Rotary club - a practice that guarantees Rotarians a warm welcome in communities around the world. What Rotarians get out of Rotary depends largely on what they put in. If you believe that you might be suitable for and of benefit to Rotary, please contact us if you would like to come along to a meeting. www.whitstablerotary.org Rotary The World Over!
