A message from your Conservative team We are delighted to have been selected as your conservative team and we are determined to work hard for you in the newly constituted Hargate and Hempstead Ward. We believe that this is a dynamic and fast growing area with an aspirational electorate, good schools

and a strong proactive parish council. However, having listen to residence and conducted some research in the area, we recognise that many residents are worried about the conversion of some properties to house multiple of occupation (HMO’s) This has created parking issues as too many cars

compete for the space available in the neighbourhoods. We have been in touch with the cabinet member for planning and housing with regard to this and have been assured that a solution to the problem is currently being worked on. We will continue to monitor this closely on behalf of residents.

ď Ž COMMUNITY LEGAL INFORMATION

&

PENSIONS DIVORCE Rather a dull topic you may think, and if you are a couple going through a divorce but still many years away from retirement age, you may consider it irrelevant to your situation.

But even if you are only in your 40s, have been married for a while and either one of you has built up a pension fund during that period, it could turn out to be as valuable as the equity in the matrimonial home. For older couples and especially those approaching retirement, pension funds can often be the major asset in a divorce. You will probably all be aware of the changes brought in by the Government last year which allow many pension funds to be treated as pots of money, rather than savings that have to be invested to produce an annual income. These changes, within the necessary tax constraints, create greater flexibility for matrimonial settlements but would still need to be ordered by the Court in a pension sharing annex to the main financial order. All of this can be complicated to understand and you need expert advice from a family law specialist who will also point you in the direction of appropriate financial advice as required. You cannot share pensions without a court order. Securing your financial future into retirement is crucial and attempting a DIY divorce in this context would be very unwise.

Barry Blakesley

originally come from Lincoln but moved down to London at the age of 15 to start my five year apprenticeship at the Savoy Hotel, moving onto the Pastry department in Harrods for a Further 5 years. Since then I have been a manager in a pub in Essex. A catering manager for the Metropolitan Police. I now have a couple of catering contracts in Peterborough and I am the UK Catering and Facilities Manager at a private college for International students. I first put my name forward to be considered for election to Hampton Parish Council because I had become a regular contributor to the many social network sites around Hampton. I found myself thinking that posting on there was not going to change anything; it was just a forum to continue to moan with no outcomes. When I saw that there was to be an election I decided it was time to put my name in the hat. I am no career politician but I would like to be able to have my say and be listened to. I find myself at this point echoing those who have gone before me in this slot, thinking that Hampton is one of the best places to live in the city. We have local restaurants, shops, parks, schools and green areas to be proud of. Yes, we have parking issues but then so do almost every area around the city. Since joining the Council I have found it to be so rewarding in many areas like helping to organise events for VE day; giving every school child in Hampton a gift in the VE week of celebrations; finding out that the Council have been instrumental in things like the Memorial Gardens, the External gym; the implementation of the Lengths Men, of which we now have 2. They give grants to local groups and have run many competitions for local children. I have found my time as Councillor has been very fulfilling. If you feel like me and want to help change things rather than think you won’t make a difference, please have a look and see what is going on in Hampton and get involved. Whether that’s helping with a litter pick or turning up and enjoying one of the events that will be going on around our Hampton. Have a look at the Hampton Parish notice board and perhaps come along to one or more of the meetings. Please help us make Hampton better.

The Wildlife of Hampton

O

ne of the more colourful birds around Hampton is the blue tit. These attractive little birds can quite easily be enticed in to our gardens with the use of bird feeders filled with peanuts. Blue tits are considered to be very intelligent and have solved complex obstacles and puzzles in order to get to the peanuts. Nest boxes with small entrance holes are quite reasonably priced and with spring upon us you may be able to encourage a pair of blue tits to nest in your garden. Both males and females search for suitable nesting holes. When the male finds somewhere suitable he flutters his wings and calls to the female to approve it, which she may not!

No ordinary bus! The ultimate playbus for toddlers...

• ball pit • slide • Wii dance and games • music • climbing wall • swing-ball and not forgetting the delicious • candy floss and popcorn machines....

Yummy Yummy!

A wide selection of coaches and buses available for hire ranging from 12 to 70 seats with seatbelts. Disabled access coach with a lift available.

MUSIC 

Men united in song The new year brought an exciting new project for the award-winning Peterborough Male Voice Choir, Men United In Song; a recruitment initiative which aims to attract new members while at the same time raising money for a very worthy – and specifically male – cause, Prostate Cancer UK. Launching in April, the project will recruit 40 local men with a range of previous singing experience (including none!) who over 12 weeks will rehearse to perform with Peterborough Male Voice Choir in a gala charity concert at the Broadway Theatre in June. Under the direction of William Prideaux - a nationally recognised authority on the male voice genre - Peterborough Male Voice Choir has a track record of highly successful charity fundraising recruitment projects, to the extent that other choirs regularly seek his expertise in following the winning formula But it’s not all about the singing, or even about the fundraising, there’s a fantastic social scene, too - after all, not every choir can boast its own bar in its own theatre! Ultimately, it’s about a group of men getting together in a shared enterprise, which of course is the idea behind Men United, and Introduction sessions will why the charity seemed such a good fit for the project.

 COMMUNITY PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT | MOTHER’S DAY

Sara Collins – Life Coach

By Tom Hancock

Stress...

Why do we have Mother’s Day?

Stress is a natural human reaction to a physical or emotional change that requires you to adjust or respond. It is a part of the fabric of life. Stress triggers the bodies threat system causing a surge of hormones into the body which enable you to deal with the pressure or threat. Once the threat has passed then the stress hormones will return to normal. However, if you are under constant stress then the hormones will remain in your body potentially leading to symptoms of chronic stress. In these circumstances it is advisable to seek medical advice. New research from Sweden suggests that suffering from chronic stress during the teenage years can increase the risk of heart problems later in life. We cannot do away with stress, indeed it can in the right quantities motivate us to do great things, but having a healthy mechanism for managing life’s stresses and strains is essential. With the latest research in mind it is really important for teenagers to have a robust stress management strategy. Eating healthy, taking regular exercise, doing something that they enjoy and nurtures them, together with learning how to relax are great places to start. If you or your teenager need a hand with your stress management strategy, then do please get in touch. www.hccoaching.co.uk

“Why do we even need Mother’s Day?” My 14-year-old daughter grumped as I suggested she might like to put some consideration into a card and flowers. Well Gracie, let me enlighten you...

T

he full time job - No holiday. No time off for good behaviour. 24 hours, 365 days per year and no pay. If my boss at work tried to impose these conditions as the terms of my contract I’d have grounds to take him to court. The housework - It may surprise you Gracie to know that the house does not clean and tidy itself. Clothing does not wash, iron and sort itself into drawers. There isn’t an army of cleaning fairies who pop out at night to dust and run the vacuum cleaner over the carpet. It is actually your Mum. Ok some of it is me, and you will do the odd chore (generally reluctantly) but mostly, let’s be honest here, it’s mum. The food – Meal-planning, shopping, cooking. It’s just done, sorted, no problems. I realise you and your brother clear the table and stack the dishwasher, mostly while grumbling about slave labour and the general unfairness of life, but I’m betting you’d miss the meals if they suddenly stopped The taxi – How often do you use your mum as a fareless taxi-service? What if she made you walk, catch a bus or cycle to your friends’ houses. What if she starting charging you? The organiser – Where are you supposed to be at 9.30am this Saturday? Or 4pm on Tuesday? Bet mum knows! The therapist – That boy you like but who broke your heart? Mum will offer hugs and a shoulder to cry on. That nasty teacher who was making your life a misery? Who spoke to her on your behalf? Which subjects should you take at school? Should you choose hockey practice or clarinet lessons? Mum will advise. You may not like the advice or take it, but you know she cares. The banker - That school trip you forgot to tell us about? The night out at the cinema with friends you simply must attend? The new shoes you absolutely have to buy? Who stumps up for all this stuff? That’s right, your mum. So a card, a handwritten note, a hug, a kiss and a heartfelt ‘Thank you mum’ will go a long way toward making her feel special, and yes it does seem ridiculous we have to have a day set aside for it but that’s the point! In our busy lives for one day we stop, think and appreciate everything she does. So that Gracie darling is why we have Mother’s Day!

Choosing your own hours of work? Choosing the income that you want to earn? Work from home ?

If any of the above appeal to you, then please read on... I’m looking for just four positive people who would like to work for themselves, who have the desire to succeed and willingness to try. I can offer you the choice to work full or part time, a long side an existing job or you may simply want to just that little bit more. No experience is necessary as I will coach, train and mentor you. Simply build your own business from home, around your family or current commitments

SCHOOLS UPDATES YOUNG GAZETTE 

loving learning LOCAL SCHOOLS UPDATE

Hampton Vale Primary School A busy month at Hampton Vale Primary School has seen productions, special guests and visits all adding to the children’s learning Engrossed in their theme about the rainforests, Year Four children enjoyed a visit from Tropical Inc, whose staff brought to school a range of animals whose natural habitat is the rainforest. Their learning also included a visit from a Brazilian diplomat who spoke about his work. Meanwhile, debate and discussion was the focus of a Viking Thing, an assembly-like event, attended by parents, in which the Year Five children debated the question of “Vikings: Pirates or Pioneers?” In Year One, the focus has been on the theme of fairtytales; the children have enjoyed taking part in a fairytale ball and making gingerbread houses to help to inspire them to

write their own tales. The children also presented three performances of their successful production of “The Goblin Next Door” to the rest of the school and to parents and carers. Cold weather has been on the minds of Reception children as their Frozen Planet theme continues. They have been considering how the weather affects wildlife close to hone, and they have made bird feeders to be put up in public spaces across Hampton. Events to mark World Book Day and Fair Trade Fortnight have also been popular with the children: see next month’s Schools Page for more information.

Hampton College It is difficult to believe that January has been and gone and we are already at half term. Already so much success in school and so much to recognise. We are well into the Spring term with regards the sporting programme for lessons and extra-curricular activities. Participation rates for ‘out of hours’ clubs remain as high as ever, with many more opportunities on offer this year for our girls. In the last few weeks we have had the finals of the Year 7, 9 and 11 basketball leagues, Year 7 and 8 netball fixtures, boxing and football workshops provided by external coaches, rowing, dancing, table tennis, mountain biking and tennis sessions within lessons, a number of indoor cricket practice and matches for boys and girls and the start of our gymnastics and trampoline clubs. Our new catering providers, Cucina, took over on 4 January and exceeded our expectations in terms of the quality and presentation of the food and the reaction from the students, who seem to be delighted.

A massive congratulations to the Business Studies students who have just been selected to represent HC in the semi-finals of the Student Investor Challenge. They have been trading their stocks and shares over the last few weeks on a virtual stock market challenge, competing against school across the country. They have done really well to reach this stage of the competition and will now hopefully perform successfully enough to reach the National Finals. Safer Internet Day 2016 will be celebrated globally on Tuesday 9 February with the slogan ‘Play your part for a better internet’. In school, we will be holding assemblies and discussion points during lessons to support the work of Safer Internet Day. Congratulations to Mrs Johnson who has helped HC become the first Peterborough school to achieve the Bronze Young Carers in Schools Award! What a wonderful group of people who deserve this accolade.

Hargate Primary The children in year’s 5 and 6 had a fantastic experience as evacuees recently when they took part in a World War 2 Day based at Stibbington. They arrived at the railway station where they were seated on a steam train and greeted by their billeting officers. They then walked around the village identifying where they would have lived during their stay to learn what life would have been like. They took part in a lesson in a traditional classroom, carried out a gas mask drill and even got to experience life in an air raid shelter! The children, who were all given an evacuee name, were encouraged to dress up as evacuees for the day and were even provided with spam sandwiches! At the end of an exciting day, they nervously waited to meet their new guardians…… or did they?! In other news - Well done to our year 5 children who were winners at a Basketball competition at Hampton College recently! A great result. We had a ‘dress loud’ day just before half term to raise money for Heart FM’s ‘Make Some Noise’ charity. The children came in some fantastically loud outfits and we even had a visit from Heart FM for our assembly! And finally, we are pleased to announce that we are now a Fair Active school. As part of this, the children have examined what fairness means, as well as how they can be involved in changing the world around them and promoting active Citizenship.

Zootopia Released Friday 4 March The modern mammal metropolis of Zootopia is a city like no other. Comprised of habitat neighborhoods like ritzy Sahara Square and frigid Tundratown, it’s a melting pot where animals from every environment live together; a place where no matter what you are, from the biggest elephant to the smallest shrew, you can be anything. But when optimistic Officer Judy Hopps arrives, she discovers that being the first bunny on a police force of big, tough animals isn’t so easy. Determined to prove herself, she jumps at the opportunity to crack a case, even if it means partnering with a fast-talking, scamartist fox, Nick Wilde, to solve the mystery.

And that’s when things start to go weird.Does everything get hilariously out of control? Yes.Does Alfie learns a valuable lesson? Nah. This isn’t that kind of story…

WHAT’S NEW IN THE HAMPTONS? With the first homes being planned for Hampton Gardens, and work started on the new secondary school, there’s a lot happening. Here’s a quick update.

Hampton Avenue junction (On the map, Hampton Avenue is a line running west to east between the 90 degree bend in Eagle Drive, and London Road). The new Hampton Avenue is due to open to through traffic in autumn 2016, with the completion of its junction with the A15 London Road. More local facilities (north east of Bank Avenue). O&H Hampton and a developer will shortly be submitting a planning application to Peterborough City Council for a range of commercial/community style facilities that the Hampton Vale community has been asking for, adjacent to the Abbey New Homes Cumberland Place development and the A15. CALA Homes development (off Coriander Drive in the south west of Hampton Vale). CALA Homes has begun work on its development of 125 new three, four and five bedroomed houses. It expects to begin marketing them in June/July. First homes for Hampton Gardens (north east of Clayton Road on the east-side of the A15 London Road). The first planning application for around 850 houses in Hampton East is ready for submission to Peterborough City Council by the end of March. This marks the start of the new village of Hampton Gardens in the land linking the new secondary school to Teardrop Lake. The developer aims to be completing houses before the end of this year. Hampton Gardens School (on the east side of the A15 London Road). Groundworks have started on the 10-hectare site for the new secondary school, which was granted planning permission last December.

Hampton Parish Council, Hampton Vale Centre,1 Stewartby Avenue, Hampton Vale, PE78NJ (Office hours 9am to 1pm Mondays & Tuesdays) or email to hamptonparishcouncil@gmail.com

Full details of the Parish Council budget and expenditure are available on the Parish Council website: hamptonpc.org.uk, or can be obtained from the Parish Office at the address left:

Council Tax and the Hampton Parish Council Precept Dear Residents, Feedback indicates that because the precept is fairly new in Hampton many residents are unaware how small a proportion of the amount collected by Peterborough City Council under the heading of ‘Council Tax payments’ actually go to the Parish Council. So in response to enquiries from residents about Council Tax charges and the Hampton Precept here is an explanation of how the precept fits in with the council tax in financial terms: (I have given below the figures for 2015-2016 as the City Council, Police and Fire Authorities figures for 2016-2017 are not yet available). Peterborough City Council Tax for Band D Cambridgeshire Police Authority Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Fire Authority Hampton Parish Council charge (precept) for Band D. Total (Band D)

£1,128.03 £181.35 £64.26 21.75 21.75

The Parish Council has increased their budget in 2016-2017, to cover the additional

cost of a second Lengthsman, a decision which was open to public consultation last year. It is anticipated that this will increase the precept by approximately ten pence per week / £5 per year per household. Unfortunately, the City Council no longer share the contribution they received from the Government for homes which receive Council Tax relief so only around 80% of households contribute to the Parish Council. This year the Parish Council is continuing to fund local Hampton projects which need the Parish Council’s support including the Hampton Community Project which gives grants to local organisations on a community payback basis and for 2016/2017 has plans for community events to celebrate the Queen’s 90th Birthday - including a Children’s Tea Party, Adults Afternoon Tea, Children’s Art Competition and grant support for a related school project for each school together with grants for the Hampton Schools. To keep the precept as low as possible the Parish Council have once again chosen to meet some of their costs from the Council’s reserves, much of which was from a lump sum from the VAT Office following an appeal to HMRC who agreed to refund the VAT on the Lengthsman’s contract - however it is not possible to meet all

of the increased costs from the reserves as the Parish Council are required to hold a minimum of six months budget in reserve at all times. The level of reserves fell in 2015/2016 to meet the cost of a six-month trial with a second Lengthsman, the setting up of a Parish Council Office and the Appointment of an Assistant Clerk. By the end of the 2016/2017 financial year, based on current commitments, the reserves will be reduced back down to around £65,000, £10,000 of this is reserved for ongoing projects/committed expenditure leaving just £55,000 in reserve on a budget of just under £100,000. Importantly, the 2016/2017 precept, at around £27 per year, is still below the level of £30 per annum which was supported by the public petition held several years ago when the Parish Council was established despite a significant increase in the planned services based on the original £30 per year per household as in the current financial climate the Parish Council wishes to keep the precept as low as possible whilst having the resources to improve Hampton facilities and life in Hampton for the residents of Hampton.

Ultra-Ice Fat Freezing - a new innovative fat freezing eliminator This revolutionary treatment is Cryotherapy treatment; reducing fat in the area being treated to sculpt and contour your body for maximum results. It can literally freeze your butt off, lose that muffin top, love handles, back fat and even man boobs for the shape you’ve always wanted. The treatment is completely pain free and comfortable. There is no surgery, no needles, no anaesthetic or numbing agent required, which means no recovery time. You can resume to normal daily activities immediately after the session. You can start to see results in as little as two weeks, although it could take up to four months for you to see full effects of the Ultra Ice Fat Freezing. Combining your Cryotherapy with a healthy diet and lifestyle will only further maximise your results. Not only is one session sufficient for most areas, this treatment is also permanent. Once destroyed, those same fat cells cannot grow back. Fat Freezing is an effective alternative for those wanting to avoid the higher cost, pain and recovery time that can be associated with other fat-reducing treatments. Ultra-dissolve is regarded as the next generation of body contouring. Approximately 80% of women over the age of 20 have cellulite and some men, regardless of their weight, size or shape.

How does it work? Cryotherapy treatment results in a notable and natural reduction of fat tissue that have shown a fat reduction between 21% and 24% and once destroyed, those same fat cells cannot grow back.

With unique machines, Amanda is able to treat most areas of the body, including the chins, abdomen, thighs, buttocks, breast tissue and more. Their varied sized application hand-pieces allows the treatment of both larger and smaller areas. During the weeks following the treatment, the destroyed cells are processed through your lymphatic system. In clinical trials, at 12 weeks post treatment, an amazing 9 out of 10 people have said to have seen an undeniable reduction in the treated area.

Hi, I’m Chenel, I live locally in Hampton and have a fashion and lifestyle blog. I am over the moon to be writing some blog articles for the Gazette ... A little bit about me; I live a very normal life of school runs and housework, but before that, I studied Fashion Studies at the University of Lincoln and still have a passion for it (wow, that sounds cliché, but true) and this is where chenelabella was born. A bit of a creative outlet, if you like. I dabble and write about a lot; from sewing to decorating, fashion to cooking and I love to travel. I am now delving into the massive world of beauty and oh my goodness, I feel like a child that’s discovered a whole new world. Although I, of course wear makeup (mainly to cover up my dark circles) there’s so much I have yet to discover. So I am really looking forward to finding and trying out new products and sharing these with you. All of the articles I write for the gazette will be available on my blog to read, sometimes with a little bit extra than a printed article would allow. So I hope you enjoy my articles, please follow me on Instagram and on my blog and give me feedback on what you want me to research and write about in upcoming blogs. See you soon :)

HOLISTIC TREATMENTS HEALTH & BEAUTY 

Relax ... Holistic treatments can help in many ways

I

ndian head massage acts on various levels; physical, emotional and spiritual wellbeing. Wonderfully relaxing, Indian head massage is based on the ayurvedic system of healing which has been practiced in India for over a thousand years. It involves a massage to the head, face, upper back, shoulders, arms and hands that relieves tension in the muscles; it can be relaxing, stimulating and invigorating. The massage covers important energy areas in

the body, if you are feeling stressed or angry, tensions tends to accumulate. This tension can later show up as a stiff neck and shoulders, eye strain, and sometimes hair loss. Indian head massage relieves the buildup of tension, and also has an emotional effect; calming the person, promoting relaxation and relieving stress. I suffer a lot with headaches and stiff neck and shoulders so I thought I would visit Melissa at Eastern Lotus in Hampton to see if she could

help me. Melissa is based in Hargate with a relaxing studio at home, she has spent the last couple of years training in many different holistic therapies. Straight away she could feel where my tension was in my head and went to work! Melissa explained to me how Indian head massage can benefit everyone and I was really surprised at what the treatment can actually help with…

• Increases blood flow to the head, neck and shoulders enhancing the delivery of oxygen • Increases lymphatic flow in the head, neck and shoulders • Relaxes the muscles and nerve fibres of the head, neck and shoulders • Encourages cell regeneration, healthy hair growth, improving the condition of the skin and scalp • Relaxes and soothes tense eye muscles relieving tired eyes and eye strain, giving sinus clearance • Relieves muscular tension and fatigue, increases flexibility, improves joint mobility posture, reducing stress placed on bones and joints • Reduces stress and anxiety, encouraging to rest and relax • Elevates mood, helps with emotional stress and repressed feelings • Helps relieve mental fatigue, promoting clearer thinking and better concentration, and, creating a feeling of balance and calm. “If you suffer from any of the above, I would recommend booking a treatment with Melissa, I felt calm and like a weight had been lifted off my shoulders ...literally!” Eastern Lotus – 07468 628 704 info@easternlotus.co.uk

RECIPE | AWARD FOOD & DRINK 

Fellowship Honour for Charity Supporter Farooq Mohammed, who runs Maharanis Indian restaurant in Hampton Hargate, has been recognised with a prestigious award by Lions International in honour of his long-term support for the charity sector in Peterborough.

Farooq receives the Fellowship plaque from Lions Club president Bill Peacock (right) and secretary David Pope

T

he Melvin Jones Fellowship, named after the Lions Club founder, is the highest accolade available within the organisation and is granted to those who reflect the Lions’ commitment to humanitarian work. Believed to

groups which regularly hold events at the restaurant when food and staffing costs are donated by Farooq, enabling their fundraising to be optimised. “Since 2009 we return twice a year and are invariably over-subscribed. These dinners also provide a networking channel for the

Farooq has demonstrated consistent, long-term support for the charitable sector and the wider community and this is our way of showing we appreciate his support and value him as an honorary member of our club.” David Pope, Club secretary be only the second Fellowship in Peterborough, Farooq’s name will be added to a roll of honour at international HQ in Chicago. The surprise presentation was made during a charity dinner recently hosted by Peterborough Lions Club at Maharanis. Lions Club is one of many charities and community

club to raise awareness which brings further knock-on benefits,” added David. Farooq told the Gazette: “Thanks to our customers and friends over many years we have been able to play a small part in supporting not only Lions but many other charities who sometimes struggle to raise funds.

MONEY MATTERS by Pete Bird, Bird & Laws Certified Public Accountants

Do you have any tax or business questions? If so email Pete Bird of Bird & Laws info@birdandlaws.co.uk and if of general interest we will publish them here.

MATTERS TO CONSIDER BEFORE 5 APRIL 2016: Owner Managed Limited Companies: The taxation of dividend income is changing significantly from April 2016 and it’s likely to impact upon the vast majority of owner managed businesses who pay themselves dividends and a small salary. The tax payable on dividend income increases on 5 April 2016 but there may be an opportunity to vote further dividend income before 5 April 2016 to reduce these increases. Also you should consider gifting shares to your spouse as the first £5,000 of dividend income from 6 April 2016 is tax free. Capital Gains Tax (CGT) allowance – use it or lose it: Every individual is entitled to an annual exemption each tax year, that means gains up to £11,100 for 2015/2016 are tax free. If you do not use this allowance, you will lose it. If you have assets you are planning to dispose of that attract CGT you should consider whether you are able to dispose part of these in this tax year and part after 5 April 2016 to reduce any tax payable. Use your ISA allowance: ISA’s provide a tax free environment for your savings. Have you paid the maximum into your ISA investment during the 2015/2016 tax year of £15,240 per person – if not consider topping this amount up. In addition, parents can now also fund a junior ISA. Any unused investment limit cannot be rolled forward into next year, so it will be lost. Maximise your pension contributions: Contributions to your personal pension attract income tax relief. The maximum contribution that may be made for 2015/2016 without incurring an income tax charge is £40,000. You may be able to make additional contributions if you have not used your allowances for the previous three tax years. Contributions must be made before 5 April 2016 if tax relief is to be claimed in 2015/2016. Seek advice from your pension advisor. The above is only a few matters you should consider, but there may be other opportunities depending upon your circumstances so you should seek advice as soon as possible, or talk to us.

The Tortoise & The Hare We all know the story of the Tortoise and the Hare. It’s a poignant and educational story that is told by parents and enjoyed by children. Here at Tortoise we believe that it sums up the lettings agency business as well as the estate agency business in a nutshell. Every day we come across situations where we can see how differently we work from other agents. Our methods have been tried and tested over 12 months and the results have been impressive. When it comes down to the story’s fables Estate Agents who DO NOT cut corners will win the race. The Hare is a confident fellow that has no doubt he will win. So confident in fact he can cut corners, rest during the race and still feel he will beat the Tortoise with minimal effort. The race to him is a numbers game – he sees the objective and believes he doesn’t have to try hard to achieve it. The Tortoise on the other hand knows he can win the race putting in the effort and hard work necessary to push him to the finish line ahead of his competition. He sees the objective for what it is and knows that being professional, building a trusting relationship with his client and demonstrating a structured plan he will ensure he crosses that finish line first. Here at Tortoise we stage your home, have it photographed by a professional, we then write up a thorough description and put together a video story of your home and advertise it as set out in our 12-week marketing plan. On our lettings side we use a structured 6-week marketing plan. With our clients at Tortoise we set out a plan to win.

SPRING HOME & GARDEN 

your garden

Banish the weeds and bring your lawn to life

N

ow is the time to ensure your lawn gets the best possible start to this year’s growing season. Sisters Sarah and Jo Parish run the GreenThumb lawn care business in our area and with nearly 2000 customers their expert team will soon be busy applying spring fertiliser and weedkill treatments to get lawns looking lush green, healthy and weed free for summer. Having spent all their working lives in horticulture Sarah and Jo have always had to work around the weather. Sarah says “Because of the mild and wet winter the grass has kept growing and so have the weeds! Moss easily creeps into lawns and the leatherjacket lawn pest (crane-fly/daddy long leg larvae) with their

ferocious appetite has been decimating lawns by eating away all the grass. We can’t wait to get onto lawns and get them into great shape for summer.” It’s a never-ending battle to keep your lawn weed free as seeds lie dormant and others are blown in from neighbouring locations, so your lawn needs on-going treatment. To keep weeds out of your lawn Sarah’s top tips are: Never cut your grass too short – grass that’s less than 25mm (1”) will easily let weed and moss take a hold. Make sure you set your mower at the right height and even increase the height to 50mm (2”) during dry spells. Make sure your flower beds are kept weed free – seeds easily blow into the lawn.

Remember the gardeners saying “one year of weed is ten years of seed” Create a thick and healthy lawn – cut your lawn regularly at the correct height and you’ll encourage healthy roots. Together with a regular feed you can transform an ordinary lawn into a real show piece. Get expert help from GreenThumb – correct, accurate and safe use of weedkill and fertiliser is what we’re about. We take away all the hassle so sign up now for our seasonal ‘weed & feed’ treatments four times a year. Our prices start at £15 a treatment for a lawn up to 40 square metres. We’re cheaper than DIY!

Essential gardening jobs for spring

S

pring is the season where the skies begin to clear and the ground becomes considerably less muddy. So put on your wellies, hats and gardening gloves – it’s time for action! You’ll need to be quick with your gardening jobs over spring – otherwise everything will start sprouting and flowering even before you’ve put a shovel in the ground! Here, Adrian Nind, Managing Director at Bakker Spalding Garden Company shares three essential gardening jobs to complete now that the winter months are coming to an end: Weed control It’s not just plants and flowers that come to life in spring – weeds do too. It is therefore essential to tackle weeds before they have a chance to get out of control. There are a couple

of easy ways to minimise the number of weeds growing in your garden: Avoid large patches of bare soil as weeds will quickly colonise here. Use plastic sheets to cover the soil or mix in large bark chippings to deter weeds. Use a brush to remove weeds from inbetween paving slabs. For weeds in pots, remove by hand and lay a fresh layer of compost. Ensure that the soil in the pots isn’t too moist as this will encourage moss and algae. Plant the hardy stuff Primulas, pansies and irises are all hardy enough to be planted at the beginning of spring, even when the weather isn’t as warm as the season dictates. Once they start to grow, be sure to shelter them from biting winds

and ensure that their surrounding soil is moist and well-nourished. Give the lawn a deep cleansing Now is the best time to give your lawn a bit of love and attention, especially if you want fragrant, healthy, green grass all through the summer months. It’s very important to mow your lawn at the beginning of spring, and don’t forget that grass needs added nutrients over the spring months in order to prepare them for the drier summer months. Use a combination of lawn fertiliser and weed killer to obtain the thickest, healthiest grass.

THE EYEBROW TREATMENT THAT EVERYONE IS TALKING ABOUT…

Microblading

Eyebrow embroidery also known as microblading is the Japanese Method of Semi Permanent Brows and is relatively new to the UK. It is considered to be semi-permanent, as it’s compared to the traditional hairstroke machine technique. It is done using a very fine blade (made up of 10-16 tiny, fine needles configured into a blade shape) to deposit pigments into the epidermis. Because we’re impacting colour closer to the top skin surface, the strokes appear and remain crisp and extremely fine. The results are very natural looking, feathered hair-like strokes, regardless of the amount of hair present.

Fat reduction
