Council crackdown on housing fraud Enfield Council is working to recover properties from fraudsters to ensure that people in genuine housing need can be given a suitable home. In the last financial year the Council’s fraud investigation team recovered a total of 59 Council properties which were being occupied by people with no right to reside in them. By taking back these properties the Council will save approximately £850,000 a year – the cost of keeping 59 families in expensive temporary accommodation while the same number of Council homes are

occupied unlawfully. A number of other cases are still under investigation. The Council is also urging residents to help free up more homes in the borough by reporting people suspected of committing housing fraud. In common with many other parts of London, Enfield has a shortage of council homes and high numbers of people waiting for more suitable accommodation - the Council needs to make sure that only the people entitled to housing in the borough are given Council tenancies.

Enfield Council’s Cabinet Member for Housing, Cllr Dino Lemonides, said: “We don’t want people to make a profit by lying about their entitlement to a Council property and preventing a family in genuine need from being given a home. “This authority takes housing fraud very seriously and we will fully investigate every report of illegal subletting and tenancies obtained by deception. It is completely unfair that residents in desperate need of housing cannot have a home because unscrupulous individuals want to make a fast buck. ”

In the most serious cases people who illegally sublet their property or got a tenancy by deception can be prosecuted and face a prison sentence if found guilty. Residents can help the Council by confidentially reporting housing fraud at www.enfield.gov.uk, emailing fraud.team@ enfield.gov.uk or calling the team on 020 8379 1000.

Enfield Businesses Join Forces to Promote The Town You only have to walk through any town to see that the high streets are suffering by the number of shops that are standing empty. It appears that almost every few weeks we are hearing through the media about another high street multiple that is closing down and leaving yet another empty space. Enfield Town is no different just stroll around and you can see too many empty properties. But the businesses in Enfield are doing something to try and fight back. Erdal Mehmet of G Mantella Jewellers, who

is the Chair of the Enfield Town Business Association told EN Magazine, “We are in the process of trying to make Enfield a more attractive place for shoppers and businesses alike. We used to have

support from EBRA (Enfield Business and Retailers Association) which was part funded by Enfield Council but was closed down a few years ago. Since then we have had no one championing the needs of Enfield business and retailers. But rather than sit back we have got together as retailers and local business to revitalize the Enfield Town Business Association. Out of our funds which have been raised from donations from local businesses, we have managed to reemploy Mark Rudling, the previous EBRA town centre manger. Although Mark’s role is currently part time he is already making a huge impact in bringing together the local business owners and retailers to help each other.” Chris Thedoulou of Emma Claire Hair and Beauty Spa, who is vice-chair of the group added, “We have had an amazing response from local business large and small who have put in their own money to help fund our initiative to try and bring


EN MAGAZINE - issue 99 June 2018

a vibrant and full shopping centre back to Enfield Town. Other Enfield Town based businesses, including Metaswitch, N21 Brickwork and Kaybridge Construction have also generously contributed. Mark has already opened dialogue with the council to try to gain funding for projects in Enfield and has arranged meetings with organisations who are thinking about opening outlets in the town to offer encouragement and support.” “However much local business do, to try and support and make Enfield Town an attractive shopping destination we rely on the public to keep being our customers. It is very hard, especially for many smaller independent local retailers to compete with the online market place and large out of town shopping destinations. But the one thing we can do as local business is work together to promote shopping in and supporting Enfield Town and hope our customers will continue to support us.”

Sun Protection - are you doing enough? Nearly half of parents in the UK ‘aren’t worried’ about the danger of sun exposure to their children, according to shocking research. A poll of 2,000 adults in the UK with kids aged 4-14 found more than 47 per cent of parents are either unaware or unworried about harmful rays from the sun. According to the concerning stats, two thirds of parents aren’t sure how much sun cream to apply to their children. The study was conducted by sun protection brand Garnier Ambre Solaire. Charlotte Blanchard, Garnier UK & Ireland’s General Manager, said: “We know how challenging it can be to protect your little ones from the sun. “It’s a challenge in itself to apply sun cream in the first place, then parents spend the rest of their time worrying whether they have used enough and when to re-apply. “As a leading sun care brand we feel a responsibility to make

this as easy as possible. That’s why we are proud to be partnering with Tesco to launch our Sun Safe UV Patch, a simple and truly visual way of understanding the UV levels your family are exposed to.” The skincare giant is giving away over a million free Sun Safe UV Patches, which change colour to demonstrate the damage being caused that is often invisible to the naked eye.

ultraviolet – and a third of those polled didn’t have a clue UVB rays could contribute to skin cancer. Matthew Patey, CEO of the British Skin Foundation, said: “We know that UV damage in childhood significantly

increases a person’s risk of cancer in adulthood, so it’s imperative that sun awareness is made an essential part of education both at home and school.” By Richard Jenkins

Further data from the British Skin Foundation reports that at least 100,000 new cases of skin cancer are diagnosed in the UK, killing over 2,500 people each year. And getting sunburnt in childhood almost doubles the risk of developing melanoma skin cancer in adulthood. More than a fifth of parents find it difficult to get their children to put sun cream on during the summer, and 15 per cent say their little ones never want their protection reapplied. One in six parents didn’t know UV meant

Golden Achievement Capel Manor College are delighted to achieve a prestigious Gold award for their unique ‘Fifty Shades of Gold’ exhibit and a Silver award for their ‘Wild Garden’ floral arch display at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show. The ‘50 Shades of Gold’ garden was designed to celebrate Capel Manor College’s 50th Golden Anniversary, exploring the science behind the colour yellow, why it evolved in the plant world and what is means to gardeners and plant breeders. The exhibit tells the story of the science and natural history though 50 different plants with gold leaves or gold flowers that express some of the richness and variety of gold in the natural world and in our gardens. National Garden Centre and Plant Sales Manager at Capel Manor College, Julie Dowbiggin, led a team of apprentices and gardeners to Gold with the beautiful and inspiring ‘50 Shades of Gold’ garden. Julie said: “Winning gold on our 50th year is wonderful, we’re thrilled! To showcase the College’s 50 year golden history, we decided to look at yellow plants and pigments in the plant kingdom. The exhibit has been well received by the show visitors as well as the judge and our garden is proving successful for the College with the potential recruitment of new


students and new visitors to our lovely gardens in Enfield.” In addition, Capel’s Level 4 Higher Diploma Floristry students received Silver in the RHS Chelsea Future Florist Competition, for their stunning ‘Wild Garden’ floral arch display. It is the first ever time the students had competed and they were asked to submit design ideas for this year’s show as part of an internal college competition. Their brief: to create a floral wedding arch for a spring wedding. The final design of a ‘Wild Garden’ arch was inspired by nature, using a woodland theme with blue, lilac, purple and white flowers and foliage. Chair of the Capel Manor Governing Body, Roger McClure, explains: “Winning Gold and Silver awards at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show is a significant achievement for Capel Manor College and a result of a long period of planning and hard work

by a team of staff and students. I’d like to extend a special thank you to all those directly involved. As a College, we’re delighted to continue showcasing the incredible talent of our students at prestigious events such as the RHS Chelsea Flower Show.” Principal, Malcolm Goodwin added: “This success is a credit to the whole College. The students and staff have put in an incredible amount of time, effort, passion and skill into their winning entries and richly deserve this recognition. It goes to show that embarking on a new career in Floristry, Horticulture or any of the subjects we teach can not only be rewarding but bring success at the highest levels.” The ’50 Shades of Gold’ garden and ‘Wild Garden’ floral arch display will remain at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show at the Royal

Hospital, Chelsea, until 26 May 2018. If you can’t make the Chelsea event, you can visit Capel Manor Gardens in Bullsmoor Lane, Enfield where the College intends to create a permanent display garden based on the winning design for all to see as part of its 50th Golden Anniversary celebrations planned for later in the year.

Days Out

Foodie Delights

Dinner at the Big Festival

Thousands of people of all ages will be spending time

this summer travelling throughout the British Isles to listen to the favourite music artist performing at festivals. However, there is a new trend in festivals that give people the opportunity to scintillate their taste buds and partake in culinary delights rather than indulging their ears.

Food festivals have taken off over the last few years and offer an extensive range of different themes celebrating all kinds of foods promoting both local and regional produce as well as introducing visitors to some more exotic taste and flavours from around the world. Fancy giving your taste buds a treat? EN Magazine brings you a guide to some of the food festivals taking place this summer.

Pub in the Park, various locations

When and Where: Bath, south-west England (810 June), Tunbridge Wells, south-east England (6-8 July), Knutsford, Cheshire, north-west England (7-9 September)

Getting there: Bath can be reached in 1.5 hours by train from London, Tunbridge Wells in one hour and Knutsford in three hours.

Port Eliot Festival, Cornwall

Why: There’s nothing quite as quintessentially British as the pub and world-renowned chef Tom Kerridge – owner of the first pub, the Hand and Flowers, to be awarded two Michelin stars – is bringing the pub, first-class food and music to the great outdoors this summer. Sample dishes from top British pubs, including the Hand and Flowers and Tom’s other Michelin-starred pub The Coach, while dancing the night away to Razorlight, Jamie Cullum and KT Tunstall.

When: 26-29 July Where: Port Eliot estate, St Germans, Cornwall, southwest England Why: There’s plenty of chefs, stalls, locally-sourced and sustainable produce, international food and cookery demonstrations here that celebrate the rich and diverse food culture of Cornwall and south-west England. Yet as the festival is located in stunning 6,000 acres of countryside it’s a perfect opportunity to indulge in unforgettable outdoor activities, from wild swimming to foraging walks. This year’s food-demo focus concentrates on up-close-and-personal experiences in the estate’s centuries-old Big Kitchen and the Open Fire Stage. Oh, and there’s a baking masterclass with Desperate Housewives and Superman star Teri Hatcher.

Getting there: take a direct train from London to St Germans, which takes just under four hours.

Foodies Festival Edinburgh When: 3-5 August

Where: Inverleith Park, Edinburgh, Scotland


EN MAGAZINE - issue 99 June 2018

Days Out Foodies Festival Edinburgh

the ‘stinking rose’. Find out just how good garlic is for health, learn various ways to cook with it and how best to grow it. A new theatre kitchen has launched for this year where cooking demonstrations will take place and the whole charm of the festival is further boosted with live music, art, craft and food stalls, a huge funfair and children’s entertainers.

Getting there: Take the 45-minute ferry crossing to Fishbourne from Portsmouth Harbour (2 hours from London by train)

The Big Festival, Cotswolds

When: 24-26 August Where: Alex James Farm, Kingham, Cotswolds, central England

Why: Launched by Alex James of Britpop legends Blur, and taking place on his Cotswolds farm, The Big Feastival has earned its place as one of the food festivals to visit, thanks to both its impressive line-up of top chefs – which this year includes Marco Pierre White, Raymond Blanc, Mark Hix and Pierre Koffman – and stellar musical talent. Cheese is a big draw for this festival (Alex James makes his own); cheese lovers should head to the double-decker cheese hub with its award-winning artisan cheeses and all-day cocktail bar, and – new for 2018 – The Cheese Bar and The Cheese Truck where you can feast on huge stacks of British cheeseboards and grilled cheese sandwiches. When you’ve eaten your fill, dance off the calories to music from Basement Jaxx, Craig David, and Paloma Faith.

When: 18-19 August

Getting there: The nearest train station is Kingham, 1.5 hours from London

Why: Because you’ve always wanted to take part in cream-pie throwing, chilli eating and cheese-stretching competitions! Quirky activities aside, this touring festival (which travels to six other British destinations) brings everything a foodie could ask for to a festival, from Kombucha workshops to Prosecco and Parmesan masterclasses, artisan and street food stalls, a Gin Station and a Tequila Shack. Plus, you’ll see top bands such as The Hoosiers and Toploader perform.

Getting there: The park is a ten-minute taxi or bus ride from Edinburgh city centre.

Isle of Wight Garlic Festival

Where: Sandown, Isle of Wight, south England Why: Ever fancied trying garlic fudge? Or how about sampling garlic popcorn or ice cream? The Isle of Wight, off the coast of south England, is famous for its garlic so it makes perfect sense for the island to host an entire festival to

EN MAGAZINE - issue 99 June 2018 15

Days Out

Great British Food Festival, Wiltshire

When: 25-27 August Where: Bowood House, Wiltshire, south-west England Why: It’s a foodie paradise set in the grounds of a beautiful English stately home in the heart of the Cotswolds. Another touring festival, the Great British Food Festival comes to the breathtaking Bowood House, which gives visitors the opportunity to team a love for food with a love for history. Along with talks, stalls and cooking demonstrations, there’s also the chance to take part in some quirky British challenges – why not see if you can beat the record of eating a 74.5 inch sausage followed by a pint of cider in less than six minutes six seconds!

Getting there: the train takes just over an hour from London to Chippenham; Bowood House is then a 15-minute taxi ride from there.


Abergavenny Food Festival, Wales When: 15-16 September Where: Abergavenny, south Wales

Why: Set in a pretty medieval market town, this is one of Britain’s most well-established food festivals – 2018 marks the 20th year since the first took place –– and it’s a great festival to visit for combining a passion for food with a sense of adventure. There’s a diverse selection of forages and tours operating as part of the festival, taking advantage of the bountiful Welsh countryside. Forage for seafood or for gin botanicals or book onto tours of nearby vineyards and distilleries. The popular ‘Cooking Over Fire’ area will return to the town’s historic castle featuring Hang Fire BB, while the demo stage will host Welsh chef legends such as the Michelinstarred chef Gareth Ward from Ynyshir Hall, and James Sommerin from his eponymous restaurant in Penarth, Cardiff.

Getting there: Trains take 2.5 hours from London to Abergavenny or 45 minutes from Cardiff.

Health and Fitness

Summer fitness and Weight-loss With the return of the sunshine we grab our shorts and light weight clothing but is it fitting you as well as you thought it would? Are you looking for a way to drop a few pounds so you look great and feel great on the beach this summer? EN Magazine spoke to some diet and fitness experts to bring you some tips and advice for getting in shape this summer. The team at Cardiff Sports Nutrition shared their 10 pointplan to losing weight with EN Magazine,

So, kicking it off at number one, calorie deficit.

It’s as simple as that. It all boils down to, calories in v calories out. If you are burning more calories than you consume in a day, you will lose weight. So, if you are eating, let’s say, 3,000 calories, you burn 3001 calories, in time, you will lose weight. There’s a number of ways you can go about putting yourself into a calorie deficit.

Number two, increasing NEAT

NEAT stands for Non-Exercise Activity Thermogenesis. Simply put, this is just anything that you do throughout the day that consumes energy and burns calories outside of things like taking part in sport and doing anything in the gym. So this could be walking to work, getting off at the stop before yours and walking there, doing the extra distance. Using the stairs instead of the lift, walk into the kitchen, doing the hoovering, anything that requires energy. NEAT can help play a massive, massive, massive factor in losing weight. You could be consuming, you could be at the gym every day, doing an hour’s cardio every day, but at the end of the day, if you’re sat down all day doing nothing, you probably not going to be losing weight.

Number three, steps, having a goal step

Ten thousand is the big thing. Everyone with the Fitbit, will tell you. Is it a special number? No. But it’s a really good starting point. If you hit those steps, it gets you up. If you are on break at lunch at work, or anything like that, going out for a little walk just gives you something to go by.

Number four, keeping in the weights

Cardio is not the one when it comes to weight loss. You need to be doing weighted training, and in particular, lifting heavy. This is gonna put a lot of stress on your body, which is, therefore, gonna lead to greater calorie consumption, calorie burning, sorry.

Number five, simple swaps, probably the easiest of them all

Simple swaps, but what do we mean by simple swaps? It’s cutting out sugar, using sweeteners, in your cup of tea, anything like this. Low-calorie condiments and sauces, it doesn’t have to be calorie-free. Little things like using light mayonnaise, reduce sugar ketchup, all adds up to saving hundreds of calories at the end of the day.

Number six, eating more protein

Protein is key for not just muscle burning, but losing weight. There’s a number of key benefits of increasing your protein intake. The biggest reason for eating more protein is, when dieting in particular, is that it keeps you full. Protein is a lot harder... It’s a key macronutrient and it’s harder to digest for the body leading to feeling fuller for longer, you’re unlikely to be snacking in between meals when you’ve had a good protein hit in your lunch.

Number seven, tracking calories and macros

How do you know if you’re in a calorie deficit? If you don’t know how much you’re eating, you haven’t got a clue if you’re in a calorie deficit or not. There’s a number of tools online. But basically, if you have a calorie allotment, you can look at how many grams of protein, carbohydrates, and fats you’re consuming. But again, we’ll go into that detail, in another video.

Number eight, incorporating cardio

I know we’ve already said that cardio is not the one, however, it has its place. At the end

EN MAGAZINE - issue 99 June 2018 17

Health and Fitness of the day, cardio burns calories and burning calories is what’s needed to lose weight. We’d much rather get weight training in, reduce a bit of food, get your NEAT levels up. If we got all of them in place and you’re still not losing weight, then we can look to incorporate cardio. And there’s two forms of doing it. You can either do list cardio or HIIT cardio.

other ways can you acknowledge and manage your emotions? Is there an underlying unresolved issue at play?

Number nine, prepping meals

Third Rule. Think

Prepping meals is key to weight loss. The biggest reason is to eliminate decision fatigue. If you have prepped your meals for the week and you know what you’re having in each meal, you’re not waylaid into going out to the shop for lunch, going out for a meal. It really is key. It’s not necessarily the certain foods that you’re eating, it’s just the fact that you got everything planned, everything prepped. It just gets rid of any temptation of going out for lunch when you’ve got your Tupperware meal there in front of you.

Ten, accountability, probably the biggest thing

Losing weight, at the end of the day, boils down to you. So you need to hold yourself accountable. It’s you that wants to lose weight and it’s you that gonna do it. So, don’t let anything take you away from your goal. And that is it. Have you heard people say that exercise and diet are mind over matter? Well Malminder Gill, the leading Harley Street Reinvention Hypnotherapist shares some tips to help you keep focused

Easy Weight Loss Mind Tricks First Rule (Day 1 or Week 1) Get real about what you are eating! Many people are in denial or do not realise the amount of food they are consuming on a daily basis. Raise your awareness to find out exactly what you are eating, once you know this you can start to cut back on the ‘unnecessary eating’. How? Every time you are about to eat something, note down what you are about to eat and how much, if possible take a picture too! At the end of the day/week you should have a list (or pictures) of foods you ate.  Maybe you discover you are eating more than you thought? Are you surprised?

about alternative things you can do when you feel that way. Perhaps you can take long deep breaths to the count of 8 for a minute or two. Perhaps you can distract yourself by engaging your mind in another task, reading a book, finally getting around to that face mask! Or perhaps you have identified the real reason behind that emotion and now is the time to address it properly. Trying to lose weight without addressing the underlying issues simply doesn’t work.  Similarly, trying to lose weight without committing to exercise and a healthy diet rarely works either.  The real ‘trick’ here is to cover all bases: the emotions, healthy eating and exercise.  You can find out more about Malminder’s weight loss program at: www.hypnosis-in-london.com When it comes to losing weight, who do you turn to? You’ve got the standard giants: Weightwatchers and Slimming World, as well as the others, doing the whole shakes thing.

Second Rule (Day 2 or Week 2) Continue with your

There’s no company with the know-how to offer the full spectrum of diets though, is there?

If it is your diet and nutrition that you are having difficulty managing and find you need help with your weightloss challenge why not speak to local diet experts at Practically Slim who over a range of diet plans to help you reach your goals

EN MAGAZINE - issue 99 June 2018

From shakes to proper food? Well, here’s where we suggest you stop and look again. Practically Slim, a nationwide company running for just three years, is offering all this and more. The owner, Heather Newham, wanted to use the aeons of experience she’d gathered in a long career in the diet business. She knows what it takes for men and women to slim down, and the kind of practical support they need along the way.

Health and Fitness Heather Newham from Practically Slim

The range of diets she offers is ideal for friends wanting to fight the flab together but interested in different approaches. You can select from:

Replacement meals, shakes, bars and soups

Stand with arms extended above your head, holding the towel with hands at shoulder-width distance. Pull your hands apart so the towel is taught. Lower down into a squat position, keeping your weight in your heels, your back straight and the towel overhead. Slowly straighten your legs to return to standing then repeat.

Three times a day, with a snack: The Fast Track Plan Twice a day with a low carb low GI meal in the evening: The MAD Plan Twice a day with two meals, made from a foods list provided by the company: The 2+2 Plan Three times a day, 5 days a week, then the 2+2 plan for the other two days.

If you are heading off on your summer getaway you may find it hard to keep up with all your good efforts to get in shape. Angela Ioannou, Fitness Manager at everyoneactive has come up with a great exercise plan for your trip and all you need is some enthusiasm and a towel

Overhead squat

Intermittent fasting On the Alternate day fasting plan you do the Fast Track one day, and eat whatever you like the next, to a maximum of 2000 calories for women and 2500 for men On the Five Two plan you eat normally five days a week, with no more than 600 calories on the other two. The beauty of the expertise within the company means they also have a plan for people who’d prefer to mostly eat real food: The Real Food plan favoured by Practically Slim is simple and works on energy density. Choose low energy density foods, like fruits and veggies – high in volume and nutrition, low in calories – over high energy density foods. If it’s nutritional information you want, Practically Slim posts a short blog each week too, keeping up with all the latest studies, and is advised by a trained expert in dietetics. If it’s human empathy you need, the company provides small, weekly support groups in a friendly atmosphere a world away from some of those offered by the giants in the arena. And finally, the company is set apart by its ‘personality profiling’. A mini profile is free to all comers to the website, with the option to obtain a free, more detailed, 5000-word report by arranging to see your local coach. We asked Heather how it helps: “We’re very excited by the diet maps our clients can ping out from their online questionnaires. These outline their key personality traits and can form the basis of their very own behavioural management plan to help them stick to their chosen diet.”

Today, a 28 year old Myrna returns after three years of medical residency in Oslo. Florence eagerly anticipates her daughter’s return, but in order to face her, she will need to go back not just three but fourteen years, to the day she abandoned her to follow her lover.
