October Gardening Tips

Congratulations to Pam Bunting of Christchurch who won the September competition.

The first frosts are likely and as the evenings draw in time for getting out in the garden becomes more precious. It's a great time of year for getting garden projects done, make the most of it while soil is manageable and working conditions are ideal. Gales are always a possibility so make sure overhanging branches are safe and that sheds and other garden structures are secure. October remains a great time for planting - the soil is warm and minimum watering in will be needed. Out with the old.... Clear dead and dying bedding plants. You can compost their remains. Prepare for spring flowers Once spent crops have been removed dig the soil over and add some slow release nutrients, then plant winter pansies, wallflowers, sweet williams etc. to overwinter and flower nest spring.

TidyTidy-up time - but not too tidy! Spent crops, old bean canes, long tough grass, woody prunings need clearing away for tidiness and disease control but try and find a out-of-sight place to leave some material for insects and small mammals to hide in. A pile of logs or even old clods of turf can make all the difference to garden wildlife. Mulching works - keep down weeds and conserve water Once your garden soil is thoroughly wetted it's a great time to get mulching. Trees and shrubs will benefit from a wood chip or bark mulch, perennials prefer well rotted compost or manure. Plant tulips To avoid possibilities of disease some folks prefer to leave Tulip bulb planting until now. Pot feet Make sure patio pots can drain easily, stand them on pieces of tile or better still get some pretty terracotta pot feet. This helps the plants and makes frost damage less likely. Over wintered onions and garlic Towards the end of the month when soil is firm make sure to get Japanese onion sets planted and at the same time pop in a few garlic cloves, they do much better than ones sown in the spring. Pumpkin time Pumpkins and Winter squash should be ready to harvest. Cut them with a piece of the vine intact if you can, rots are less likely that way. Get them off the ground and into a airy sunny place to finish ripening and then store in a dry, frost free shed. Plant trees and shrubs The soil is still warm, and the ground is moist, perfect for settling in new plants.

including scalpel, forceps, tweezers, a hypodermic syringe and needles, elastoplasts, lint, bandages, stethoscope and bottles of iodine, surgical spirit and wads of cotton wool. GPs were called in to deal with serious child illnesses like, scarlet fever, diphtheria, TB and a deadly form of meningitis. It was strange the way it affected some children and missed others even in the same family. I lost two school friends, one was ............who died from it whereas his two sisters escaped and the girl in the ...........family who had recently moved into the bungalow next door developed flu-like symptoms but my father realised it was meningitis and sent her to hospital but she died in about a week. ……..the school was understaffed due to the war and Mr. Slynn the headmaster was retiring age and there were quite a number of women teachers. We had PT with Mr Morgan, Music lessons with Mr Jones keeping an eye out for slackers whilst singing folk songs and sea shanties. The maths lesson was adding up columns of figures and times tables. Top of the class was Egbert Setterfield. The English teacher Miss. or Mrs. Whittingham asked us to write compositions on anything that took our interest. Mine was never good enough to read out aloud but Alec Batten was often asked. Books were scarce and so she used to read out passages from classic novels and gave us dictation and spelling tests. The woodworking class where Mr. Dance taught us how to make different woodworking joints was my favourite. He allowed us to have a project to complete and mine was an engine shed for my Hornby 'Princess Elizabeth' gauge 0 locomotive.” If anybody would like to record their memories of Christchurch we are always pleased to receive copies for our archives. Keep Christchurch Memories Alive.

Events… We run family friendly and adult events and workshops throughout the year. Every half-term and school holiday there are things for the family to do from trails to workshops.

Red House Museum & Gardens ...An account of wartime childhood in Christchurch.

We were sent this account of a wartime childhood in Christchurch by Mr Peter Francis. It is an interesting insight into the life of a local GP’s son and how even though he left school at 14 with very little education and no formal qualifications at that time, ended up as a well respected scientist at SRDE at Somerford. We have extracted a few paragraphs from his story in his own words. “I came to Christchurch with my parents just before the outbreak of the war because my father had to sell his medical practice in Worsley in the outskirts of Manchester for health reasons. He had served with the Manchester regiment in WW1 and had been exposed to a German poison gas attack in the front line . He was later awarded the MILITARY MEDAL for bravery but had been left with mental scarring due to the horrors of trench warfare and physical scarring with permanently damaged lungs. All this had been aggravated by the need to work in a chemist's shop to pay for his studies at Manchester University to become a doctor. We rented a bungalow 'Sunhaven', at the top of Riverway. It had been left to the owners by their former employer, a Bishop. Although it was a small two bedroom bungalow it had a huge garden. It had its own stream and a rustic footbridge over it with ornamental flowerbeds and shrubbery, a large greenhouse and even a stable for the Bishop's pony when he used to use a pony and trap to visit his parishioners. My father was a Locum for Dr.Brooks in Stour Rd. Christchurch. He was very busy in an overstretched practice. Very hands-on then with minor ops at the surgery and at the patient's house things like cuts, abrasions and boils and expected to visit at all hours. I once looked in Father's Gladstone bag to see what he used on his patients. It contained miscellaneous surgical instruments To advertise in The Christchurch Directory call 0800 043 0850

WAKE UP TO WINTER!

B

ritish Summer time officially ends on Sunday 28th October and dark dreary mornings begin. If that signals the start of an even stronger pull from your bed springs when the alarm goes off, then the Sleep Council has some timely, tongue-in-cheek advice for leaving the warm and cosy comfort of your bed. • Don’t be tempted to turn off the alarm until you are wide awake and well clear of the bed. If you do need an extra couple of minutes to come round, hit the ‘snooze’ button instead. • Now hit the light switch, mentally preparing your eyes for the shock as you do so. A bedside lamp will do, but the full force of an overhead light will be more effective in acclimatising your brain to the idea of eventual movement. • Begin mental preparation for the moment of final departure. Some people find a few undercover physical preliminaries helpful too - gentle opening and closing of the eyelids, raising and relaxing of the

eyebrows and loosening of the finger joints. • On especially difficult mornings, allow yourself the promise of a quick return to bed with a cup of tea or coffee - provided you nip out of bed and make it first. This can lessen the finality of wrenching yourself from the bedclothes and is a device much used by the most experienced and seriously reluctant risers. • Once you have come round sufficiently to sit up, you may feel ready for the final prelift off activity: switching on the radio. Which station you choose will depend on your age/ time of waking/ early morning mental agility/ Radio Local humour threshold. • You are now ready for the moment of truth. Those who have applied themselves thoroughly to the above checklist should experience little if any trauma when they throw back the bedclothes. Assuming the heating has come on in time to take the chill off the air, they can congratulate themselves on a successful start to the day.

Those for whom the above advice is of little use should make an immediate examination of their bed. If it is too old/ small/ lumpy/ uncomfortable, no amount of gentle coaxing will persuade you to move in the mornings as you have probably had little or next to no sleep at all. If you take the Sleep Council’s advice and invest in a decent new bed, you too could have to work at getting up in the morning and leaving your wonderful new bed. For more information on how to choose a good bed or how to get a good night’s sleep, visit The Sleep Council’s website, www.sleepcouncil.com or call Freephone 0800 0187923 to request a copy of the Sleep Good, Feel Good Guide or the Bed Buyer’s Guide.

Frettens Solicitors were delighted to complete their first Home Information Pack (HIP), 10 days after the scheme was launched on 1st August. It was for a property in Bournemouth, via Headstart Estate Agents. Branch Manager of Headstart, Karl Rusk, commented “We are pleased to work with Frettens they handled the HIP order so swiftly and efficiently, particularly given the newness of the scheme.” Having invested huge amounts of time and effort to ensure that they were ready for HIPs, Frettens are pleased to see their systems working well with the first few weeks of orders. Completing HIPs as quickly as two days also shows that HIPs should not delay the process of selling homes. HIPs are now mandatory for all properties marketed for sale with 3 bedrooms or more. It is proposed to extend this to smaller properties soon - Phase 2 will include properties with 3 bedrooms, followed by Phase 3 to include all properties. David Walton, Head of Frettens’ 35+ strong Residential Conveyancing Department, says “After some concern from the public and estate agents, HIPs are not actually having a negative impact on cost or length of time of a transaction. Traditionally, the market picks up after the summer, and so far we have not seen a big difference from last year. People should not be put off from putting their property on the market, or risk devaluing their property by marketing a three bedroom home as a ‘two bed plus study’.” HIPs can be ordered by agents or by sellers via a simple form on the Frettens website. The Frettens HIP is competitively priced at £299 (inc VAT) and offers the reassurance of using a well established and experienced local firm of solicitors. Unlike many other Pack providers, Frettens do not make any additional charges if the property is leasehold or unregistered. The only additional fee for leasehold property is the charges for required information by the managing agent. For further information visit www.frettens.co.uk

MISTED UP DOUBLE GLAZING Allglaze is a local glazing and window company that undertakes work in the Dorset and Hampshire areas— no matter how big or small! A large percentage of enquiries the company receives are from home owners who think they have a very serious problem with their windows… Condensation building up inside their double-glazed units. The customer often thinks that they will have to replace the whole window —glass and frame combined. This is not the case. Allglaze is able to replace the glass panels only, very quickly and easily and at a fraction of the price it would cost to replace a whole window. There is minimal disruption and mess and the job from start to finish only usually takes around thirty minutes to complete. Double-glazing repairs can be undertaken to wood, Aluminium and UPVC windows.

IS YOUR CONSERVATORY TOO HOT IN THE SUMMER & TOO COLD IN THE WINTER? Just by changing the roof panels only, Solar Controlled glass will stop 75% of Solar heat and UV radiation that fades and bleaches fabrics. Please call us if this is of interest to you or if you have any other related questions that you would like to ask us. We will be pleased to help and provide you with a free quotation.
