from your Mayor

Helen Powell

ello again. What a year we are having. We have had plenty of rain, sun and heat. I hope you all had a great summer. All the hanging baskets and planters are looking really good and making the town look really attractive. The town looked a treat for the judging of Bourne in bloom, so let’s keep our fingers crossed as everyone has put so much effort into putting out more flowers to decorate the shops and doorways. Sweeping the shop fronts and keeping them free of litter is enticing more shoppers into the town centre. We had the privilege of being present at some marvellous occasions in August and were very impressed by the Rotary club of Bourne’s international campaign to eradicate Polio worldwide in children, even in the war zones of Afghanistan. More members are needed for this exciting organisation. I hope you’ve found the petitions in the shops for supporting the proposed Bourne Jubilee

Policing your By Sergeant Ian Martin

n Englishman’s home is his castle”. When looking at the range of issues the Police deal with, one which has no place in any town is that of burglary, especially against the elderly or vulnerable. Although this still occurs in the local area, I am pleased to say that a lot of good work is being done to reduce this, both by Lincolnshire Police, the public and partner agencies. It is often with a good eyewitness account or a vigilant member of the public that these offenders are stopped and caught. One area I think that cannot be discussed enough is that of distraction burglaries. The standard modus operandi is where a person will ring a doorbell and say something like “the water next door is leaking, I need you to check your taps”or “there is a problem in the street can

So many people wish to see the Jubilee Bandstand built in the Memorial Gardens at a discreet distance from the Cenotaph. I also hope you have seen the posters up about the National Bandstand Marathon being held in Bourne on Sunday 9th Sept. From 1pm to 5pm in the Memorial gardens where local musicians are getting together to entertain us in this national event . Contact number: Liz Gordon 01823 332413 / 07702 808137. Five years ago when the Bandstand Marathon started there were 50 bandstand involved, this year there are 500+ and everyone is expected to have a marvellous time so please come along and support this amazing event and your local musicians.

I use your phone”. They may be in smart clothes or a uniform, but whatever you do, DO NOT let this person into your house. Just lock the door and call the Police. It may seem odd, but if the person is genuine they will wait. It is not my intention to frighten you, and is in no way any fault of the public, but in the spur of the moment and through kind heartedness, we all still let these people in. It is only later that it transpires a second person has snuck their way in also. If you have an elderly friend or family member, please do remind them of the basics of who they let into their house, and our emergency 999 and non-emergency 101 telephone numbers. If you wish to discuss any of the issues raised then please do not hesitate to contact me at Bourne Police Station.

Rib-Eye Steaks Rubbed with Coffee and Cocoa

To match the steaks’ rich, beefy flavor, they're rubbed with a cocoa-espresso spice mix. This dish is perfect for a summer barbecue!


• 1 tbs. finely ground espresso coffee beans • 1 tbs. pure Ancho or New Mexico chilli powder • 1 tsp. natural cocoa powder • 1 tsp. granulated garlic • 1/2 tsp. ground cumin • 1/2 tsp. turbinado sugar or brown sugar • 1/2 tsp. ground fennel seed • 1/8 tsp. ground allspice • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper • 2 boneless rib-eye steaks, 1-1/4 to 1-1/2 inches thick (about 2 lb. Total) In a small bowl, combine the espresso, chilli powder, cocoa, garlic, cumin, sugar, fennel, allspice, 4 tsp. kosher salt, and 2 tsp. pepper. Rub 1-1/2 tbs. of the mixture all over each steak. Cover and let rest for 1 hour at room temperature.

Tip: Let the steaks rest before and after grilling (before, so the steak isn’t refrigerator cold when it hits the grill, and after, so the juice redistributes for moist, tender steaks)

Prepare a gas or charcoal grill fire for indirect cooking over medium-high heat (400°F to 450°F). Grill the steaks over direct heat until grill marks form on one side, about 2 minutes. Flip and grill the other side for 2 minutes more. Move the steaks to indirect heat, cover, and continue to cook until the internal temperature registers 125°F on a instant-read thermometer (for medium rare), then 1 to 3 minutes more per side. Transfer the steaks to a cutting board and tent loosely with foil. Let rest for 10 minutes and then cut each steak in half and serve. | September 2012



LOCAL NEWS IN YOUR AREA LARKFLEET HOMES’ AND KEYSTONE DEVELOPMENT’S RETIREMENT COMMUNITY WINS NATIONAL HOUSING ACCOLADE The Croft, an age-exclusive retirement development by Larkfleet Homes and Keystone Developments has won a national housing award. The development, located on North Road in Bourne, Lincolnshire, won a HAPPI (Housing our Aging Population Panel for Innovation) award at the national Housing Design Awards ( The HAPPI award celebrates the innovative approach to the design of older people’s housing with a specific focus on the users’ living experience. Larkfleet’s managing director Karl Hick was present at the awards ceremony to collect the winners’ certificate. He said: “We are delighted to receive this award for The Croft development in Bourne. Larkfleet and Keystone have worked hard to ensure that The Croft provides an outstanding environment for retirement living. It is the perfect place to live for people who prefer enjoying life rather than having the worries associated with managing a home. “The history of the site, coupled with the high quality properties and excellent grounds maintenance, will help sustain property investments and the future value of the homes. “I would also like to thank South Kesteven District Council and Louise Cooper Architects for their assistance in the development and planning of The Croft.” The Croft development consists of 68 one and two-bedroom bungalows and two and threebedroom chalets, arranged around attractively landscaped courtyards in the grounds of The Croft – a historic former ‘manor house’. Within the manor house a two-bedroom apartment is available. The Croft is being marketed as not only a place to live but as a community of like-minded people who enjoy a lifestyle full of possibilities. Homeowners at The Croft will be able to live the life they want to lead, in a secure and caring environment.


Larkfleet managing director Karl Hick (centre) and his wife Helen Hick collect the HAPPI Award from David Behan, Director General of Social Care, Local Government and Care Partnership at the Department of Health.

As part of The Croft development, the existing manor house is being restored and will act as the ‘hub’ of this new community to provide residents of the 68 retirement properties with access to a variety of services and facilities. In addition, as it is central there are many local amenities such as a doctors, supermarket and many more within walking distance. Karl added, “Larkfleet is hoping to develop similar schemes in Oakham, Whittlesey and Baston. We welcome comments from local communities about this type of development and how we can continue to meet the local need.” Also in Bourne, Larkfleet Homes has recently begun work on its Abbeyfields development which will comprise two and three bedroom properties with prices starting at just £125,000 which are perfect for first time buyers. • For more information on Abbeyfields, please contact 01778 392795 or email

TOOLBAR Toolbar is a local charity that supports unemployed people in Bourne and its immediate environs. Toolbar offers people help with experienced staff within various industries, help with CV writing and has the facilities to look and apply for jobs and links to work placements. 70% ledge acknow ing R as hav A B L O O T nificant had a sig obtaining effect on ent employm

The charity started three years ago by three local men from Bourne Baptist Church who noticed that a significant change was taking place because people who had previously been in secure jobs were beginning to be made redundant and felt that there was little practical support in the town. One man then realised that the lounge in the Snooker Hall on Cherry Holt Road would make an excellent venue. Discussions and planning took place and TOOLBAR opened in May 2009…..quietly. Then from June, a trickle of people started to use the facilities and we were on a rapid and steep learning curve with the number of clients and volunteers rising. Networking began with Lincolnshire Community Volunteer Service, fund-raising organisations, local authorities and gradually our profile grew. Our staff increased with the eventual addition of professional CV writers. We also acquired a small number of laptops and a printer so that people could job search and also get CV’s produced on site. We have grown in every way since the end of 2009. The financial support we have received from local charities, individuals, local authorities, and community organisations has been phenomenal. At the end of our last financial year in March we were able to apply for Registered Charity Status. That has

recently been confirmed and we now have five new trustees with a wide variety of business , education, and banking backgrounds. We conduct random follow ups on our clients and about 70% acknowledge TOOLBAR as having had a significant effect on obtaining employment. Currently, approximately 24 people attend each week. We assist with; • Job searchs through newspapers, internet and job centres • Have a small dedicated team working on CV’s, • Offer advice and help on how to get and conduct interviews. We have worked with A4E and the local Job Centre and are an integral part of the Job Centre Plus Partnership Group. We regularly have speakers from industry and commerce and run our own introduction to: • Cooking courses with Edenham Regional House • Services of an in house counsellor • Masseurs • Hairdressing We also offer volunteering opportunities to help people improve their opportunities of getting back into work. We also have a working relationship with Universal Gym that can help clients. Currently, we have people volunteering at local lunch clubs, an equitation centre and a pet refuge . Toolbar helps with transport costs to volunteering opportunities and short free courses at local colleges. Clients receive free tea / coffee whilst they are with us and they get a variety of opportunities to discuss all the wider issues that affect them through their period of unemployment with staff who have a wide wealth of experience to assist them in moving forward. TOOLBAR MEETS EVERY MONDAY MORNING (not Bank Holidays) AT BOURNE SNOOKER CENTRE ON CHERRY HOLT ROAD 10 .30am to noon and can be contacted at or 07748689026 | September 2012

Discovering... ..Bourne Workhouse


by Rex Needle

overty in past times was epitomised by the workhouse that has earned its place in English social history as the last resort for the poor and destitute. The conditions that prevailed have been immortalised by Charles Dickens in his novel Oliver Twist, written against the background of the Poor Law Amendment Act of 1834 which forced impoverished husbands, wives and children into separate institutions. Until then, each parish provided cash relief to deserving cases but this was becoming expensive and the system often abused and the government decided to impose a stricter procedure under which able-bodied men who could not find work had no option but to enter the workhouse, taking their families with them. Bourne already had a workhouse that stood in North Street near the junction with Burghley Street which was then called Workhouse Road but this was too small and so in 1836 a new building was erected in Union Street, now St Peter’s Road, with room for 300 paupers. It was run by a Board of Guardians who enforced a strict regime in an attempt to persuade the poor to seek employment rather than live in such grim and uncongenial surroundings. Rules were strict, there were no luxuries and a minimum was spent on their food and clothing.

There were treats on special occasions such as Christmas Day, small luxuries paid for by wealthy townspeople but the guardians ensured that the inmates were appreciative of this charity and in 1923, one of them, an elevenyear-old boy, no doubt guided by matron, wrote thanking them for providing such a happy Christmas and the lovely toys which Santa Claus had brought them. The workhouse also catered for tramps passing through the district who received lodging and a meal of bread and gruel for perhaps one or two nights in return for some menial work such as chopping wood or sweeping floors. These vagrants had been known to cause trouble, and even to bring lice into the workhouse, and as a result, the guardians decided in 1868 that everyone should be searched and given a bath before being admitted. The disgrace of the workhouse remained until improvements in social conditions brought about its gradual decline and in 1930, the premises were converted into St Peter’s Hospital for patients with mental problems but that facility also came to an end 60 years later and the building was pulled down in 2001.

A monthly feature that focuses on current financial issues. Many local Banks and Building Societies have lost their ‘in house’ adviser and few are independent. Eamonn is a fully qualified local Independent Financial Adviser.

How Independent Financial Advice can help In an independent survey* the following key findings came to light.

Comparing two groups of consumers with similar income: • The group that received financial advice had a much higher proportion of people with life insurance, pension provisions and investment products than the non-advised group. • The current average pension pot for consumers who have been advised on their retirement planning is £74,554.30, double that of those not seeking advice. • On investments, people with an adviser save for longer and contribute more, leaving them an average investment value over £40,000 higher than for those who haven’t sought advice. What conclusions might we draw from this? By


Ask the expert today

seeking the views of a professional adviser – the quality of decision making can be greatly improved. For example – the provision of adequate retirement plans in itself is a sensible decision – rather than having to retire on a very reduced level of income – with good advice – the actual cost of investment is reduced because a properly set up retirement plan can reduce exposure to taxation and maximise the benefit of investment markets.

The male waxing company has been going for over a year now and is now introducing a full waxing service to ladies as well as men.


ocal business woman Dawn King had customers asking 'do you wax ladies?' and due to demand is now offering this service to ladies. “I had ladies approach me commenting that they had tried various different establishments offering waxing and found that the service and experience hadn’t been to their expectations.” Dawn offers waxing for any part of the body from eyebrows, face, ears and nose through to the toes. As Dawn only specialises in waxing, she has become an expert in her industry. She believes it is all down to her tools; the wax and technique. “I only use Perron Rigot wax which is the best on the market today. This is distributed by the well known skin care company Thalgo in London.

Alongside her waxing she has organic products specifically made for waxing after care which are also good on shaved areas. To promote the ladies side Dawn is offering 20% off your first wax by quoting 'DB0912' by the end of September 2012. A loyalty scheme is in operation for all her customers that offers them a discounted rate for repeat customers. She is more than happy to answer any questions related to waxing. Dawn’s hours are very flexible for those who work shifts or unsociable hours which is hard to find these days.

Most waxing companies only use one type of wax whereas Dawn uses two different types of 'New Generation' wax (heated at a lower temperature for a more comfortable treatment) a strip wax and a non strip wax which is specially for sensitive and intricate areas. “I now specialise in intimate waxing for both genders and have been trained by the leading experts in the industry so I am the best around and can give my customers a more comfortable experience.” Dawn knows that when someone wants intimate areas waxing they want someone who knows what they are doing which is why with her expert training she can offer this service to people. Not only has Dawn been trained by experts in the industry she is a member of the Perron Rigot Expert Waxing Network so customers can be rest assured of the treatment they will receive.

Ray Pawlett looks at ways to achieve a more peaceful life


At the ripe old age of 44, I have realised what my grandparents and parents told me was true. “Things change”.

Nowadays, industry is generally service based, nearly everybody has at least one computer and lots of homes have a TV in each room. Many children have been abroad on holiday and most sales are done through the internet and quite commonly there is no material product at the end of it. Our consciousness has expanded making the planet feel smaller and life feel faster. Material items have been slowly replaced by data. We can download a piece of music whenever we want instead of going to the local record shop and bringing it home.

Meditation and Chi Gung is to teach you how to “go with the flow” of the Universe – or the Tao as the Sages would have called it. These arts teach you how to flow with the expansion of the Universe but stay grounded as you do it. Staying grounded which is a Yang quality will help you to feel balanced with the world and appreciate its magic and beauty.

Staying grounded which is a quality will help you to feel balanced with the world and appreciate its magic and beauty.

These phenomena were all written about many years ago by the Taoist Sage. In their language, the world is changing from the more contracted Yang state and expanding to a more Yin state. The difficulty is that it is happening very quickly. Many conditions that were less common thirty or so years ago are becoming more normal. Fatigue, depression, anxiety, IBS and lack of connection with the world are a few of the many conditions that thrive in a more Yin environment. The aim of Taoist arts such as Tai Chi, Shiatsu,

THE FAT LOSS RECIPE "How to burn fat"

Preparation time: 6 - 12 months Ingredients: Hard work Dedication Will power 4 x per week! Rest Cooking Instructions:

One of the age old questions “what’s the best way to lose weight?” is slowly changing. Continually now I am asked “I want to be healthier, how do I change my body shape” and “what’s the best way to reduce body fat?” Now for the answer that some are not going to like; the best fat burner is increased muscle mass. The fact is that increased muscle mass is the best, safest and in my mind the only true way to ‘burn fat’. Fat just sits on your body taking up space because fat is not metabolically active. Muscle weighs more than fat, but takes up less space and so you will be smaller and look thinner if you have more muscle than fat. Many women are unsure about the incorporation of weights into a workout and instead opt for pounding out the miles on a treadmill, cross trainer or other fat burning programs, hey I’m a triathlete so I’m well aware of the benefits of cardiovascular activity! However, if you are concerned that weights will cause you to become a pumped up manly beast please think again as this is not the case. Testosterone levels in women are much lower than in men and believe me you have to work seriously hard to get that big. There are several effective methods from

circuit training, crossfit, Insanity and PX90, other HIIT and TABATA type workouts or even basic weights at the gym that can be incorporated into your workout. 30 mins will do or in some cases a lot less, it’s more about the intensity and working for it. Now when I say 4 times per week that is how often you should be exercising, resistance training does not need to make up all of that but at least half. A study by Penev et al showed significant reductions in fat loss through sleep deprivation. We should aim at 7 hours sleep with an optimum rest time of 9 hours. Sleep retention can make you feel hungry and dramatically reduce fat loss, so get plenty of rest. So to get healthy - start resistance work, join a gym, get a personal trainer or exercise at home. Do it safely, work hard, above all enjoy it and get plenty of rest! Written by Matt Craven at the Grange Spa (

Prevention of Knee Pain Osteopath Jo Sunner looks at Repetitive Strain

Mr J. Sunner. DO.BSc(ost). Registered Osteopath

Knee pain has a host of causes. Many types of pain are difficult to prevent, but you can do some general things to reduce the likelihood of sustaining a knee injury. Staying slim and fit • Staying slim reduces the forces placed on the knee during both athletics and everyday walking, according to some medical research it may reduce osteoarthritis. • Keeping your weight down may also reduce the number of ligament and tendon injuries for similar reasons. • Many knee problems are due to tight or imbalanced musculature. Stretching and strengthening will help to prevent knee pain. • Stretching keeps your knee from being too tight and aids in preventing both patellofemoral syndrome and iliotibial band syndrome. • Strengthening exercises particularly of the quadriceps (straight leg raises and leg extensions are two excellent exercises, but please see a book on exercise and training for more) can help prevent knee injury.

basketball or tennis every day but will not if you limit your pounding sports to twice a week. Whatever you do, respect and listen to your body – if it hurts change what you are doing and if you are fatigued, stop, many injuries occur when people are tired.

Water exercises Chronis knee pain can be helped by various water exercises such as swimming as the force of buoyancy supports some of our weight so our knees do not have to. If you don’t have access to a pool or do not like water activities try to limit hard pounding and twisting activities such as basketball, tennis, or jogging. You may find that your aching knees will act up if you play

Protecting the knee By wearing the correct protection for the activity at hand can help avoid knee injuries. For example, when playing volleyball or laying carpet, the correct protection may include knee pads. | September 2012

Kennel Cough

Pet Page

Kennel cough is an infectious disease of the upper airways of the dog that leads to a very nasty cough. Roland Stevens MRCVS from Exeter Veterinary Centre explains.


ennel cough is passed from dog to dog through the air when the dog coughs and is most common in dogs staying in boarding kennels, but will of course occur wherever an infected dog meets others. The more dogs present in close proximity the greater the risk. The incubation period is from 3 to 10 days, during which the dog is infectious, and the cough itself may persist from 1-3 weeks. Recovery is the norm after this time, but a small number of cases will persist for longer and occasionally a persistent cough may result. There are a number of different viruses and bacteria that may be involved in causing this condition. Often a mix of viral and bacteria are present in any one case. Each outbreak can have a different combination of these disease forming organisms. So kennel cough describes a condition and is not a specific disease.

organisms involved but when symptoms do arise they are usually milder and shorter lived. If taking your dog to a boarding kennels, training classes with other dogs or socialising puppies it will help to reduce the risk of your dog catching this distressing condition. Note that a dog can be infectious in the early stages before it shows any symptoms so vaccination will also help you prevent your dog from catching it and passing on the infection to other dogs. Please ask your vet about this vaccine, it can be given from as early as three weeks of age onwards, but would not usually be necessary until before a first visit to puppy classes or a boarding kennels. Some dogs may show transient snuffling or cough after vaccination, but symptoms are usually mild and treatment is not needed.

The bacterium Bordatella bronchiseptica is commonly a major contributor to the disease and is often associated with a more serious cough. It is not included in your dog’s normal vaccination which is given by injection. There is a vaccine available to protect against this bacterium that is given by the intra-nasal route [into the nose] as it gives better protection. This will not give guaranteed prevention of kennel cough because of the range of | September 2012

You can’t beat spring-flowering bulbs for a splash of colour and now is the time to plant them. To get the best from your bulbs, plant with compost, well-rotted manure or composted bark and a slow-release or controlled-release fertiliser and remember to label the planting position.

2) Plant winter baskets and containers

Plants to use include ivy, dwarf conifers and dwarf shrubs, winter-flowering pansies, hardy primulas and polyanthus.

3) September tidy up

September is a great time to make the most of your garden while the good weather lasts. Add extra supports to plants that have grown well during the summer, keep treating for pests and slugs – they don’t need to get any fatter! It’s a great time to clear your paths and patios, use path weed killers to clear pesky weeds and specialist patio cleaning tools and products to clear moss and green algae.

4) Pest watch

As temperatures start to drop, outdoor pests become less active and diseases start to become dormant but you should still stay vigilant. Clearing away leaves and other debris will remove hiding places for pests. Fallen diseased leaves should be raked up and destroyed. Badly diseased stems and branches are best pruned away. The cooler, damper weather means that slugs and snails will become more active, so protect vulnerable plants with a suitable control or trap. This is also the last time you can treat plants for vine weevil grubs. Spray peaches and nectarines to help protect against peach leaf curl. Indoors, pests and diseases will remain active. Early identification of a problem will ensure it doesn’t get out of control, so check your plants Keep your garden full of colour throughout autumn with regularly for telltale signs.

Clean up your PC using CCleaner By Taff

Lovesey of LitesPC

Very much like your car your PC performs more efficiently if you give it a periodical clean up. We are going to look at two basic tasks that form part of a standard PC health check and which can easily be carried out by all computer users. The first thing to do is download the free application, CCleaner via the web address http://www. click the “Download” button and when prompted select either the Piriform. com or link. Your web browser will next prompt you to save/run the download. This process varies slightly dependent on which browser you are using but essentially download and install the CCleaner application by running it. Once installed double click the CCleaner icon to open the program. You will now see the main interface. The two clean up tools are listed on the left; Cleaner & Registry.

Running Cleaner:

When running the cleaner you have the option to run it directly or to analyse first. The process is identical but Analyse will show you changes before they are implemented. Run Cleaner carries out the clean-up. Click on Run Cleaner now. During the cleanup the tool will show the progress being made followed by a list of items addressed. When it has finished it will also show you the amount of disk space that has been recovered, almost 2Gb in the example shown. The initial clean up is now complete.

Running the Registry Analyser:

Click on the Registry icon on the left Click on Scan for Issues As before the application will now analyse your system and display progress. However there is an extra step to carry out due to the sensitivity of the Windows registry.

Click on Fix selected issues You will next be asked if you want to backup the registry. Click on Yes Now select where you want to save your registry settings. Your Documents folder is the default and this is fine so Click on Save Finally you will be prompted to show each fix individually or to Fix All. Click on Fix All CCleaner will now step through all the issues and address each one. When complete Click the Close button. You are now all done with these basic clean up actions and can close CCleaner. Well done! You’ve not only carried out a basic maintenance but also saved yourself the cost of getting someone to do this for you.

Film Review


Avengers Assemble Marvel Avengers Assemble is a 2012 American superhero film produced by Marvel Studios and distributed by Walt Disney Pictures, based on the Marvel Comics superhero team of the same name and is the sixth installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The film is scripted and directed by Joss Whedon and features a cast that includes Robert Downey, Jr., Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, and Samuel L. Jackson amongst others.

So what happens in Marvel Avengers Assemble - If you can remember the details, you’ll already be aware of the importance of a glowing energy cube called the Tesseract, which is stolen by Loki, god of mischief (Tom Hiddleston). Loki hopes to use it to summon an obliging alien army to help him subjugating the Earth, and kidnaps Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) and the astrophysicist Erik Selvig (Stellan Skarsgård) to help with his evil scheme.

Iron Man, Captain America, Thor and The Incredible Hulk; or collectively The Avengers was launched by Marvel in 1963 as a response to DC’s Justice League of America comic, featuring Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman, yet there is very little old-fashioned about this lot.

In response, Nick Fury, director of the peacekeeping organization S.H.I.E.L.D. scrambles his best men: billionaire industrialist Tony Stark (Iron Man, played by Robert Downey Jr), super-soldier Captain America (Chris Evans), and ace scientist Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo), alter-ego of the Hulk. Soon enough they’re joined by Thor, the god of thunder (Chris Hemsworth), who has a score to settle with Loki, and the Russian spy Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson).

Joss Whedon’s film is an assemblage of everything that’s good about contemporary popcorn cinema. Not only does he achieve this, but he also manages to knot the plot threads together of its five prequels.

As the first of this season’s three superhero movies (the others being The Dark Knight Rises and The Amazing Spider-Man), Avengers sets the bar impressively high and is definitely one worth renting this month.


Time to take a break with a sudoku puzzle. If your feeling brave, time yourself to see how you do. Good luck!
