Editor’s Note bit this Christmas by supporting our small, local and independent businesses. Rather than shopping on amazon or in big department stores, supporting our high street is more important than it’s ever been.

Merry Christmas and welcome to the Christmas edition of Community Contact magazine! At the time of writing this we have just started lockdown 2.0! I really hope that by the time we go to press that the virus levels will be lowering, our NHS will be coping and our schools are still managing to stay open. 2020 has been a very strange year, and I hope that in 2021 we can start to rebuild our communities. We can all do our

Over the next few pages you will find a jam packed shop local gift guide with different gifts for the whole family, all available right on our door step!

Are you ready to vote for your lockdown hero? We have teamed up with the wonderful people at Whittlebury Hall this year to bring to you the Community Contact Local Lockdown Hero Awards! Your local lockdown hero will win a spa and stay for two as well as being crowned our local lockdown hero. Turn to page 28 to find out more

and head to our website to nominate your lockdown hero. We have some gorgeous Christmas recipes from Twyford Pantry and Kate has written a fabulous article about her favourite places to eat this Christmas. Let’s keep everything crossed that we can go back out to eat in December. If it is a no from Boris, then make sure you check out if they are doing takeaways. Isn’t it amazing how everyone is adapting during these times. Congratulations to Helen Black who won our Annie Nightingale book – we will make sure your book is on it’s way to you soon. Merry Christmas everybody, and here’s to a happy and healthy 2021...

The Eight Dimensions of Wellness with Louise Lambert-Day - Place Eight Wellness

It’s a word banded around quite a lot at the moment, at a time when we seem to be suffering with more chronic disease, mental health issues and dysfunctional relationships than ever. Clearly, though we seem to be aware of our need for the elusive ‘wellness’, as more of us than ever are attending yoga retreats and self-care days, burning essential oils and reading self-help books than ever before. But what exactly does wellness mean? And what are the eight dimensions of wellness? Most of us know that wellness is much more than being physically well. Whilst physical wellness is clearly one impor tant dimension (without it, the other dimensions are harder to achieve), it’s so much more than just being free from illness and more than simply taking care of the foods we eat and exercising regularly. Did you know there are in fact eight dimensions of wellness? They are all mutually interdependent & neglecting just one

24

for any time can have a knock-on effect, ultimately affecting our health and general wellbeing. The good news is that each dimension doesn’t have to be equally balanced. Each of us will place more impor tance on some dimensions than others. The point is to aim for a balance between them that feels right to us, not right to someone else. We all have our own views of what it means to be ‘fulfilled.’ PHYSICAL Caring for your physical body to stay healthy now and to prevent illness in the future. INTELLECTUAL Continuing to be interested & to learn; sharing knowledge with others; responding in a positive way to intellectual challenges. EMOTIONAL Understanding & respecting our feelings, values & attitudes; appreciating the feelings of others; working to feel as positive about life as we can.

TO ADVERTISE WITH US VISIT COMMUNITYCONTACT.CO.UK OR CALL 07882 194830


SOCIAL Maintaining healthy relationships; enjoying being with others; developing friendships & intimate relations; caring about others & letting others care about

ENVIRONMENTAL Understanding how our social, natural, and physical environment affects our health & tr ying to create an environment that fulfils us. An understanding about

us; contributing to our community.

what can do to care for the planet.

SPIRITUAL Taking par t in activities that are in line with our own beliefs and values; finding purpose and value to our life. VOCATIONAL Preparing for and par ticipating in work that provides personal satisfaction and life enrichment that is consistent with our own values, goals, and lifestyle. FINANCIAL Managing our resources to live within our means, making informed financial decisions & preparing for shor t & longterm needs or emergencies. Being aware that ever yone’s financial values, needs & circumstances are unique.

Wellness is the whole picture; a blend of physical, mental, and spiritual wellbeing. It’s about charging our bodies, keeping our minds active and our spirits nourished. Achieving wellness is a proactive approach - becoming aware of and making choices toward a healthier, more fulfilling life. It’s about striving for our own individual lifestyle that will allow us to live our best life within the boundaries of our own potentials, circumstances, and that fate of course is going to allow.

Hi, i’m Jess

WINTER IN THE GARDEN WITH JESS It may be dull and cold outside but the garden is already preparing for the 2021 show. I look at the garden and I see dried, brown seed heads and the stubs of the cut back perennials. The gorgeous rusty Autumn colours of the leaves and dahlias are long gone but the beauty of Winter is all around and the promise of next years colourful displays has been planned. There is still a lot to be done! A simple job to do is to protect your pots from the frosts. If you have invested in beautiful and pricey terracotta pots then move them into a shed, greenhouse or sheltered area of your garden. If they are too big to move then wrapping them in bubble wrap works really well. I always seem to loose one or two due to my own carelessness and wish I’d taken this piece of advice. Bare root trees, shrubs and roses can be planted any time from now until about the end of February. They are in their dormant state so get them planted and they will thank you for it in the Spring. I plant my bulbs in October and November but many seeds can be sown on a warm windowsill so they are ready for planting after the frosts, these will flower earlier and be stronger plants than those sown next Spring. Sweet Peas will benefit from planting now as will Snapdragons.

30

I have always loved being outside and noticing the wildlife that plants and flowers bring into our gardens. As a youth I was much happier surrounded by my pets and plants than anything else, this has never changed. Now at the age of 40 I think I’m where I’m meant to be; surrounded once again by plants and pets. For the last 12 years I have been a florist, I have owned my own shop, been studio based and freelanced for some amazing florists having the opportunity to work at amazing venues all over the country. During the last 5 years I have had the space to grow my own flowers, often adding the perfect bloom into my floral displays. Right now a new chapter is opening up and there is much more flower growing in my future. These articles will be my thoughts and observations of the garden as it grows and changes.

TO ADVERTISE WITH US VISIT COMMUNITYCONTACT.CO.UK OR CALL 07882 194830


WILDLIFE As for the wildlife in your garden, there are jobs that you should NOT do to help them out. Don’t turn your compost, if you are lucky enough to have Hedgehogs then they may be snuggled up and hibernating in there. Solitary bees take refuge in the hollow stems of plants that have been cut back so don’t cut them back any further for now. If you have scruffy areas of leaves, logs and sticks then leave then be while the creepy crawlies enjoy the shelter. Lastly, don’t forget to feed the birds with fat balls, nuts and seeds, you will be rewarded by watching them fluttering down to feed. If you provide then with water too, then they will enjoy a bath. I love watching the birds from my kitchen window and am becoming a proper twitcher, I don’t even mind the pigeons and squirrels.

CHRISTMAS With Covid still affecting everyones lives, I think we all need to support our local businesses this year more than ever and also tap in to our creative sides and make something natural and meaningful.

LOLLY AND THE HARE 2021 will see me selling my first British Grown Blooms. Narcissus, Tulips, Anemone and Ranunculus will all be ready for cutting in the Spring. Follow @lollyandthehare on Instagram and watch out for the website coming soon too.

Many local florists and garden centres are running Covid safe Christmas wreath making courses. Look at www.ivyameliaflorals.co.uk Vic is an exceptional florist based just outside Buckingham, all her classes are available to book via the website. Preston Bissett Nurseries are also running their usual workshops too. Help to make this year the ‘Biggest Ever Small Business Christmas’.

ou r rea newe d st th mor add em e on abo ition lin ut s e

Christmas isn’t just about the meals – there are presents many will be thinking of and potentially stressing about – I know some of you have them bought, wrapped and ready to go already but for others its going to be even harder this year. If you wish to send presents – be creative – most people love something homemade or with a bit more thought in it. Jam Jars are versatile things (or kilner jars, whichever you choose) – get one for every person you want to buy for (excluding young children) – decorate it and fill it with something relating to them – sweets, crafty bits, hot chocolate kit, sewing bits, bath time treats, tealights, seed packet and garden gloves, savoury nibbles, flavoured sugar or salt, popcorn, beauty bits even socks or pants! If you want to make something or have been caught out short notice, I have found a great recipe this month for Microwave Fudge ready in just over an hour! Another reciepe I spotted that looked interesting was a Seabass in Puff Pastry , it could be an alternative for Christmas lunch! Lastly and I’m yet to try this at time of writing…how to make sloe gin that is ready in two weeks – yes TWO WEEKS!! Wherever we are, whatever we are able to do and whoever we are able to be with to celebrate, I wish you all a safe and healthy Christmas. Find happiness in what is possible and look forward to being beyond whatever currently isn’t. We’ll get through it if we take care of ourselves and others. If anyone is able to drop an item into a foodbank basket when you are next passing please do, it will make a difference – every item adds up and there will be many more in need this year. Best wishes for now, see you in 2021 – stay safe and sane in the meantime! Tina xx

The Twyford Pantry Seabass in Puff Pasty - Sevves 4

Ingredients 60 g small cooked prawns 2 tbsp tarragon , finely chopped 1 tbsp olive oil , plus extra for greasing 1 large free-range egg , beaten 2 tbsp milk plain flour , for dusting 500 g puff pastry , halved 1 kg whole sea bass , filleted (ask your fishmonger to do this) – you can also buy frozen sea bass fillets

Go online to find a delicious Salsa Verde recipe to accompany this beautiful tasting Seabass Method Preheat the oven to 220ºC/450ºF/gas 7. Combine the prawns, tarragon and olive oil in a small bowl and season generously. For the egg wash, whisk the egg and milk in a small bowl and set aside. Lightly flour a work surface and roll out half of the pastry to a rectangular shape about 5mm thick and 10cm longer than the fish fillets (for the head and tail). Transfer to a lightly oiled baking tin.

Place one of the fillets, skin-side down, on the pastry, leaving a little more space at one end for the tail shape. Spoon the prawn and tarragon mixture over the fish and place the other fillet on top. Brush the edges of the pastry with the egg

wash.

choice - amaretto or brandy works well) – if not using a liqueur substitute with milk

Roll out the remaining pastry to the same size and use this to cover the fish, pressing the edges carefully to seal them. Use a small, sharp knife to trim the excess and create your fish shape. Then, with a teaspoon, score half-moon shapes into the pastry in the style of fish scales (but don’t pierce the pastry). Roll the off-cut pastry to 1cm thick, cut out a few thin strips to shape into fins, and tear off a small piece and roll into a ball for the fish’s eye. Build your fish shape, brush with the remaining egg wash, then bake for 15 minutes. Reduce the oven temperature to 220ºC/350ºF/gas 4 and cook for another 20 minutes, until the pastry is golden and the fish is cooked. To serve, transfer the fish to a platter and serve in slices with the salsa verde and salad or vegetable sides. source: www.jamieoliver.com

Microwave Boozy Fudge makes 24 - alcohol optional!

Method Grease and line a 20cm square baking tin with baking parchment. Put the sugar, condensed milk and butter in a large heatproof bowl (the mixture will bubble up as it cooks to roughly double its size so this is important), add a good pinch of salt and stir together. Heat the mixture in the microwave on High for 10 mins, stirring every 2-3 mins. Keep an eye on the mixture, as it will bubble up and may go over the sides of the bowl making a sticky mess. Add the vanilla and liqueur to the mixture, whisk together and heat on High for another 2 mins. The mixture should be caramel-coloured and thickened. Scrape into the tin and set aside for 45 mins to 1 hr until cool and firm before cutting. Pack into a box and eat within 3 weeks. source: www.goodfood.com

ASTON MARTIN Made in Britain by Ben Collins Format: Hardback Edition Price: £20.00 Hand Signed by Ben Collins to a Title Page Available from Cole’s Books - coles-books.co.uk

From bestselling author, racer and stunt driver Ben Collins – the man who was The Stig – comes a story of spies, speed and hard-driving genius: a driver’s love letter to one of the world’s best-loved machines. Aston Martin’s first, wickedly fast models were forged at a time when Ferrari’s premises at Maranello was nothing but a ploughed field. This book celebrates a century of innovators who kept the fire burning brightly for over a century, from the visionary pioneers Martin and Bamford to modern-day design guru Adrian Newey; from a glamorous web of pre- and post-war spies and racing drivers, to David Brown and the achingly beautiful DB models beloved of Bonds past and present. Ben Collins explores the car with the double-o prefix from a unique perspective behind the wheel, carving through country lanes in his father’s V8 Vantage, driving Aston Martins in four James Bond movies and competing against them in the legendary Le Mans 24-hour race. Ultimately, this is a very British success story: of a triumph of engineering that has burned brightly from the Roaring 20s to the 2020s, and an iconic car that never says die. About the Author: Ben Collins, formerly The Stig from the BBC’s internationally acclaimed Top Gear, was the benchmark of speed against which hundreds of celebrities set themselves,: the man that everyone – including Formula One stars Nigel Mansell and Lewis Hamilton – tried and failed to beat. He is also the go-to guy for Hollywood car chases (he was Bond’s stunt driver in every film since Quantum of Solace) and has raced successfully in almost every class imaginable, from Touring Cars and Le Mans 24 Hour to the American Stock Car circuit.

THE TRUTH ABOUT CBD In recent years CBD has seen a notable surge in popularity as a wellness product. The UK market is currently worth £300 million and there is a growing interest in the natural health benefits, but what do you really know about it and can it really help? There is actually a great deal of educational and clinical information that should be understood and of course a lot of anecdotal experience, but this article is going to try and offer an introduction to what the studies have shown and why there is so much interest in it. Cannabidiol (CBD) is the second most prevalent of the 113+ active ingredients (cannabinoids) of the cannabis sativa plant. The body naturally produces endocannabinoids, which are neurotransmitters that bind to cannabinoid receptors in your nervous system. Studies have shown that CBD and other phytocannabonoids (cannabinoids from the plant) may help reduce chronic pain by impacting endocannabinoid receptor activity, reducing inflammation and interacting with neurotransmitters. Clinical studies have also shown it to help with anxiety and regulating mood.

similar to a multi-vitamin where your body takes what it needs to work better. Whilst there is a plethora of CBD oils on the market making a range of claims, the key principles to consider are quality, potency and dosage and whether the oil is actually full spectrum or whether it is just hemp seed oil (easily marketed but offering zero cannabinoids) or CBD isolate. 21atoms believe in whole plant extracts – not cheap isolate and certainly not just hemp seed. We never introduce artificial flavourings, preservatives or sugars in to our blends. Only ever natural botanicals. Our unique formulas are hand made locally and have been developed as a result of 9 months of case study work monitoring the reduction of pain and inflammation, improving sleep, reducing anxiety and improving skin conditions. It is also subject to independent UK laboratory testing to certify that what we claim on the label is actually what you get in the bottle.

We are proud to have been featured in a number of articles where our customers have experienced sustained and significant health benefits as a result of introducing our oils to their daily health “Full Spectrum” CBD Oil (without the psychoactive care routine. And that is why we say, Not all CBD THC ingredient) means that the full range of is the same.™ cannabinoids available in the plant, are offered in an easily absorbable way to allow the body to For more information experience the “Entourage Effect.” The thinking is visit www.21atoms.com
