Wimborne BID was delighted with the record crowd that attended the switching on of the Christmas lights and the new Gulliver’s smugglers challenge race. The aim was to raise awareness and attract as many people as possible to come and experience Wimborne. Organisers were delighted with the number of pubs and restaurants that joined in the contraband race and many businesses dressed up and found ways to be involved. BID director and organiser Martin Tidd thanked everyone and particularly those businesses that came out and joined in the fun. The event also raised money for Troop Aid.

“News in Brief” WHATS YOUR PENSION DOING? In the UK, 23 million people are employed in the private sector with 3.2 million contributing to a workplace pension scheme. 6 million workers are in the public sector with 5.3 million saving in a workplace pension scheme. The number of people actively saving in company pension schemes in the private sector has halved since 1991. Times

BANK CHARGES Some High Street banks are charging eye-watering rates of interest when their customers go over their overdraft limit. A customer borrowing £100 for 28 days without the consent of Santander would repay £200, for example. That is the equivalent annualised percentage rate, or APR, of 819,100%. BBC

ARE YOU ON FACEBOOK? It’s said that Facebook could be worth $100bn if, as widely predicted, it floats on the stock market next year. That would make it as valuable as Amazon (in business since 1995) and McDonald’s (1940) and twice as valuable as Tesco (1929). BBC

FUEL POVERTY The proportion of homes in fuel poverty in England and Wales has risen from 18% to 24% in two years. Nearly 5.7 million households are now in fuel poverty - when more than 10% of their disposable income is spent on fuel. Consumer Focus

  ‘Habits are at first cobwebs, then cables.’ ~ Spanish Proverb Let’s face it: most of us fail when it comes to scking to resoluons — so much so that many people swear never to make resoluons again.

we’re not going to be stuck in the same old rut again this year.

And yet the rest of us are eternally hopeful when the New Year comes around, believing without any credible evidence that we can improve our lives, that change is possible, that

While we love the opmism of New Year’s Resoluons, unfortunately, the enthusiasm and hope oen fades within weeks, and our efforts at self improvement come to a whimpering end.

We try to do too many resoluons at once, and that spreads our focus and energies too thin. It’s much less effecve to do many habits at once.

We try to do really tough habits right away, which means it’s difficult and we become overwhelmed or inmidated by the difficulty and quit.

Life gets in the way. Things come up unexpectedly that get in the way of us scking with a habit.

We only have a certain amount of enthusiasm and motivation, and it runs out because we try to do too much, too soon. We spend all that energy in the beginning and then run out of steam.

We try to be “disciplined” and do very unpleasant habits, but our nature won’t allow that to last for long. If we really don’t want to do something, we won’t be able to force ourselves to do it for long.

Resoluons are oen vague — I’m going to exercise! — but don’t contain a concrete acon plan and don’t use proven habit techniques. That’s a recipe for disaster

Focus on one habit at a me, so our focus and energies aren’t spread thinly.

Customer service at allme low, research claims Threequarters of UK consumers believe customer service standards are at an allme low and more than half have been driven to complain in the last year, research has found. According to research by the Henley Business School, twothirds of customers believe retailers, leisure providers and service firms in the UK are “arrogant, make no effort to understand their customers and

fail to supply against customer demand”. The survey of 200 customers and customer service professionals found that more than half of respondents felt businesses should be fined for consistently providing poor service. The report’s authors noted that economic stress was contribung to customer dissasfacon, but was not the main cause. Instead, they said, people are “simply demanding beer quality” and widespread use of social media was making comparison between businesses easier and complaints about them more visible.

Phillippe is charged with Riley, who is lonely and living in the city with her businessman husband and two small children, and doesn’t speak a word of French. Finally it is Chantal who takes on Jeremy, the husband of a successful movie star who is filmingin the city; everybody sees her but nobody sees the invisible husband – except, that is, Chantal.

Three New Bells for Wimborne Minster A faculty application has been made to augment the ring of ten bells in the West Tower of Wimborne Minster. The current set of bells was cast and installed by Gillett and Johnston exactly one hundred years ago in 1911 and they are considered to be one of the most musical rings in the country.Adding three new bells on top will enhance the musical possibilities without affecting the sound of the original ten which will still be able to be rung.The augmentation also celebrates the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee in 2012. Within the Salisbury Diocese, which covers most of Dorset and Wiltshire, there is currently only one ring of twelve bells at Trowbridge.

Funding for the new bells and installation has been raised by The Friends of the Minster, The Minster Preservation Trust, The Llewellyn Edwards Bell Restoration Fund,The Wimborne Minster Society of Ringers and private donations. It is hoped that the bells will be cast at the Whitechapel Bell Foundry in London in the next few months and that the installation by Whites of Appleton will then take place by the middle of 2012.

Currently the ten bells in D sound:

The addition of three new bells will give opportunities for: A full twelve in D:

This full ring of twelve bells will sound no louder than the current ring of ten, but will appear more joyful in tone. And a new lighter eight in A:

This new ring of eight will be especially helpful for teaching purposes and they will sound brighter than the more grandiose back eight.

Wimborne & Ferndown Lions

Wimborne & Ferndown Lions club Charter dinner this year was particularly memorable as no less than three club members were presented with the coveted Melvin Jones Fellowship plaques. Melvin Jones founded Lions Clubs international in 1917 and there are now more than 1.3million members worldwide. Lions Godwin Micallef, Ken Taylor and John Wilson have between them amassed just on 100 years of service including a total of 6 spells as Club President. Pictured are (from left) John Wilson, Godwin Micallef and Ken Taylor flanked by Derick Smith, the current club President and District Governor Ron Twining.

Photography

Keep it Simple Sometime in the past I remember hearing one of those little gems that hits the mark and is never forgotten. The painter has a blank canvas and chooses what to put in; a photographer has a complete scene and has to choose what to leave out. Landscape photographs are often a disappointment when we remember the whole scene we viewed. This is often because there is a strong temptation to try to capture the whole vista. This is impossible so just concentrate on capturing the concept. Four controls can help to achieve effective results. They are - Lens; Position; Lighting; Composition. Lens - choosing a wide angle of view creates small distant subjects and a lot of empty space. Two options here are to include foreground interest or use a panoramic format either set in the camera or achieved by cropping the image on computer later. A telephoto view will isolate one subject and bring the background closer. This is much easier and forces us to be selective of subject content which brings us to viewpoint. A low viewpoint gives status to a subject while a high viewpoint can remove unwanted background clutter. Moving to a different location can also give a better composition. Framing a subject with an arch or other foreground detail is a useful compositional tool. Choosing a vertical instead of horizontal format can encourage better framing of a subject. Make sure there is one part the picture to which the eye is drawn. Light quality is so important. Flat light on overcast days lacks impact. Better to return in better conditions e.g. bright sun, fog, and dramatic clouds. Use side or back lighting for impact. Overall, before taking any photos, ask yourself what is it about the scene that is so visually pleasing then concentrate on recording that detail.

One of my customers told me a very sad story about a horse moved to a new yard the other week. The owners thought he had settled in to his new surroundings and wanted him left out in the field when his field companions were taken into the stable for the night (because she said he didn’t like stables). Unfortunately he panicked at being left on his own, broke the fence and got out on the road and was killed. Horses are herd animals and really like the company of other horses; even if he didn’t like stables he would have rather been in with others than out on his own. I’m sure the owners are devastated so please be very careful if you change yards, it can take a long time for your horse to fully settle and he may react totally out of character.

The Story of Harley Davidson 1901 until today: Part 8 1940 Babe Tancrede is the winner at the Daytona 200, riding a WLDR model.

1941 America is plunged into World War II. Production of civilian motorcycles is almost entirely suspended in favor of military production. The Service School is converted back to the Quartermasters School for the training of military mechanics. The FL series premieres. 1942 Among other motorcycles made for the Army, H-D produces the unique XA 750, a motorcycle with horizontally opposed cylinders and shaft drive, designed for desert use.The contract is cancelled early due to war combat moving out of North Africa. Only 1,011 XA’s are built. 1943 Harley-Davidson receives the first of its four Army-Navy “E” Awards for excellence in wartime production. Overseas, many American servicemen get their first exposure to Harley-Davidson motorcycles, something they would not forget when they would return stateside.

You often hear in business that it’s ‘the early bird that catches the worm’. Well, if you’re someone that loves to crack on with your day and make new business deals before you’ve even had your second cup of coffee, then come along to the next BNI business breakfast at City Lodge Bridge House Hotel at Longham every Wednesday (at 6.30am) you’ll get to enjoy not only a delicious cooked breakfast, but an informal chat about how word-of-mouth marketing can do wonders for your business.

1945 World War II ends, and Harley-Davidson has produced almost 90,000 WLA models for military use. Wasting no time, production of civilian motorcycles resumes in November. 1946 Harley-Davidson introduces the 45 cubic inch flathead WR racing motorcycle. It proves to be one of the best racing motorcycles ever built.
