Family Law DREADFUL DIVORCES

Have you been keeping up with the Chris Huhne/ Vicky Pryce saga? (both of them are now out of prison after serving a sentence for perverting the course of justice by swapping speeding points). What is this to do with family law you may ask? Well, it is to do with the evidence that emerged during the criminal trial about the breakdown of their marriage and the resulting effect on their children, particularly their son, nineteen at the time. The exchange of text messages between Mr Huhne and his son made it very plain that this lad had suffered very serious emotional hurt as a result of his parents’ divorce. One description of his father was “you are the most ghastly man I know” and there were plenty of other choice phrases. How can this worst type of outcome after a marriage or relationship breakdown be avoided? There will inevitably be some pain and resentment but there are formal processes available to help a couple find a way through strong negative feelings that will leave both them and their children in a much better place after a divorce, than the traditional method of partisan lawyers and going to court. Mediation offers a less formal way of problemsolving in the early stages of separation, dealing with the issues of finance and/or children, which, if resulting in an agreement between the couple, can be taken to a solicitor for formal implementation. Collaborative law is highly recommended as the legal process most likely to provide the best damage limitation for the couple and children alike.

AVG Free AntiVirus

Technology

By

Taff Lovesey of LitesPC

This months article relates to AVG, an anti-virus company based in the Czech Republic. Offering excellent levels of protection, AVG is the most popular choice for those running ‘free to use’ anti-virus solutions. Like most ‘free’ versions however, AVG offer a ‘pro’, enhanced version which is a saleable product and not free.

WHERE CAN I GET AVG FREE?

AVG is readily available on the internet and there are many sites offering a download path. I’d recommend going straight to AVG themselves at http://free.avg.com as you can then be sure of downloading the latest version and that the download is genuine, and not a virus. When downloading note the difference between the FREE version and the FREE TRIAL version. You want to select the FREE version wherever prompted and NOT THE FREE TRIAL which is a 30 day trial of the paid for version, AVG Pro. Of course, if you feel you will benefit from the additional features of the Pro version then go ahead and purchase it, however, the free version should be sufficient for most home computer users.

I’M RUNNING THE FREE VERSION BUT IT SAYS IT’S EXPIRED!

This is a comment I’ve heard a lot lately, hence the reason for writing this article. So why is this happening? When you run the FREE version of AVG you will periodically get a message pop up offering the latest version. This happened recently when it offered an update to AVG Free Summer 2013 version. Many people correctly clicked to install the update, however, during the installation; AVG offer to upgrade your version to the trial version of AVG Pro. It’s not immediately obvious but you need to decline this offer. If you don’t then your AVG free will be upgraded to Pro and will work fine for 30 days before informing you that it has expired and asking you to pay to continue to use it.

HOW DO I SWITCH FROM THE AVG PRO TRIAL TO AVG FREE? Fortunately this is fairly painless. • Go to Start -> (Settings) -> Control Panel. • Open (Programs) -> Programs and Features, or Add or Remove Programs. • Select AVG 2013 in the list of programs.

• Click the Change button at the top of the page The AVG installer window will now pop up and one of the options shown is to revert back to AVG Free. Click on this and follow the onscreen instructions. When complete you will be prompted to restart your PC and will be back on AVG Free edition.

..the Corn Exchange by Rex Needle

O

f all the venues for public events in Bourne, the Corn Exchange is the most popular and has been since it was built 140 years ago.

Grain was an important product from the surrounding farmland and the need for a central corn market coupled with a requirement for additional leisure facilities for a rising population persuaded local businessmen to finance the venture and the project was given the go ahead at a public meeting in 1870. Until then, large events were held at the Town Hall and the Assembly Rooms at the Angel Hotel but it was decided that purpose built accommodation was needed for an expanding town with a population of 3,850 [census 1871], which would include the new corn exchange with a reading room, library and a hall for lectures and concerts. Bourne Public Hall and Corn Exchange Company Limited was formed and a site chosen in Church Street [now Abbey Road], then occupied by the town’s first post office. Work began in May 1870 and the building was ready for use by the autumn when the corn market opened for business, the total cost being £2,000. The public hall was the largest auditorium in town, able to seat 500 people and suitable for lectures, concerts and shows from visiting theatrical companies, with other rooms

devoted to billiards and relaxation. Corn dealing was phased out during the early years of the 20th century and in 1938, the building was sold to Bourne Urban District Council but ownership subsequently passed to South Kesteven District Council under the local government re-organisation of 1976. The original pyramid-style blue slate roof marks the last remains of the old building and in 1990, the Corn Exchange was rebuilt on a much bigger site as part of a £900,000 project for the area although a stone tablet bearing the date 1870 and the town’s coat of arms were incorporated in the wall which borders Abbey Road. The extensions at the rear of the property also created a new façade overlooking a new market square and car park. Earlier this year, the building was again redesigned, this time to accommodate a new Community Access Point for Bourne which has centralised all council services at town, district and county level under one roof together with a new public library, thus ensuring its usefulness for many years to come.

What is the carpal tunnel?

T

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

here are eight small bones called carpal bones in the wrist. A ligament (also called retinaculum) lies across the front of the wrist. Between this ligament and the carpal bones is a space called the carpal tunnel. A main nerve to the hand (median nerve) goes through this tunnel before dividing into smaller branches in the palm. The median nerve gives feeling to the thumb, index and middle fingers, and half of the ring finger. It also controls the movement of the small muscles at the base of the thumb.

workers, especially with jobs using a lot of wrist movement such as scrubbing or wringing. So, overuse of the hand may be a factor in some cases to trigger the changes in the structures in the carpal tunnel, leading to this condition developing. Your genes may play a part. There seems to be some hereditary (genetic) factor. Bone or arthritic conditions of the wrist such as rheumatoid arthritis or wrist fractures may lead to carpal tunnel syndrome.

This syndrome is a set of symptoms which is thought to be caused by compression (squashing) of the median nerve in the carpal tunnel.

What are the treatment options for carpal tunnel syndrome?

What are the symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome?

Pins and needles. This is tingling or burning in part, or all, of the shaded area shown above. Pain in the same fingers may then develop. The pain may travel up the forearm. Weakness of some muscles in the fingers and/ or thumb occurs in severe cases. This may cause poor grip and eventually lead to muscle wasting at the base of the thumb. Symptoms can vary from person to person from mild to severe. Typically, symptoms are worse at night and may wake you up. The symptoms may be eased for a while by raising the hand up or hanging it down. Flicking the wrist may also give relief. Symptoms persist all the time if the condition becomes severe.

What causes carpal tunnel syndrome? In most cases it is not clear why it occurs.Carpal tunnel syndrome is more common in manual

Not treating may be an option - In up to 1 in 4 cases the symptoms go without treatment within a year or so. A non surgical option may be advised if symptoms are mild. A wrist splint - A removable wrist splint (brace) is often advised as a first active treatment. The aim of the splint is to keep the wrist at a neutral angle without applying any force over the carpal tunnel so as to rest the nerve. This may cure the problem if used for a few weeks. A steroid injection - An injection of steroid into, or near to, the carpal tunnel is an option. Surgery - A small operation can cut the ligament over the front of the wrist and ease the pressure in the carpal tunnel. This usually cures the problem. It is usually done under local anaesthetic. Carpal tunnel syndrome during pregnancy Symptoms commonly go after the baby is born. Therefore, a non surgical treatment, such as a splint, is usually advised at first.

Nutritional Therapy

The what, why and how by practitioner Sophie Driver B.Sc (Hons) Dip ION, CNHC registered

What’s Nutritional Therapy?

Nutritional Therapy is the application of nutrition science in the promotion of health, peak performance and individual care. Nutritional therapists work with individuals to help and support the body towards maintaining health. It can be helpful for people with chronic conditions, as well as those looking to enhance their general health and wellbeing. Practitioners consider each person to be unique and recommend personalised nutrition and lifestyle programmes rather than adopting a ‘one size fits all’ approach.

Why Use Nutritional Therapy?

Some people simply want to check that they are on the right track with regard to healthy eating. Others may want to lose weight or support their body to improve their health. Nutritional Therapists recognise that each person has unique requirements and take time to define a personalised nutrition plan, working with you to prioritise your goals. Issues that may be supported by nutritional therapy include: fatigue, digestive problems; weight loss; skin problems; hormonal issues; headaches and food sensitivities. For a more comprehensive list please visit the website or contact the practice.

What’s involved?

• Before the first consultation, Sophie will provide a health and nutrition questionnaire for you to complete. An initial consultation typically lasts 60 to 80 minutes, and in this time Sophie will ask detailed questions about your current health concerns, symptoms, medical history, family history, lifestyle, supplements and diet. She will then evaluate your individual needs to develop a personalised, safe and effective nutrition and lifestyle programme. • If you think food intolerance might be an issue, Sophie can offer in-house, while you wait food intolerance testing. Other testing can be offered when needed, e.g. hormonal testing and

digestive investigation. • If you want to lose weight, Sophie offers “The Food Plan” – a 9 session weight loss programme. Sophie will give you full support throughout the programme: an in depth consultation; 8 follow up sessions; menu plans; recipes; shopping lists; food and fluid diaries.

How long does it take?

This varies from person to person. Some people feel better after a week or two of changing their diet and lifestyle, with others it may take longer. Within 3-6 months most people feel hugely improved and have learned how to balance their own diet. Nutritional Therapy isn’t something that is done to you, it’s a learning process that will stay with you for life. Sophie will be offering a introductory session to anyone who would like to discuss any issues and find out more. It will take place on Saturday 8th June 9am to 1pm. Please telephone the practice to secure your free 20 minute session.

Through a series of articles to encourage feet awareness, Alison Staines will be highlighting what to look out for when it comes to some of the most common foot problems she treats in practice

extra bones found potentially all over the body. Many have been found in the foot. These often go un-noticed but can be associated with pain and dysfunction.

CLUB FOOT (Talipes). A deformity of the foot, ankle and calf. It presents at birth and can vary greatly in severity. Treatment is often surgical but in milder forms the support of the foot with insole orthotics and special footwear can help. BIOMECHANICAL ABNORMALITIES: During growth, CHILDRENS FOOT PROBLEMS

(Podopaediatrics): Foot problems in children are not uncommon. The bone structure in a child’s foot is different to that of an adult. The bones are soft and made mainly of cartilage. Mineralization (hardening) takes place as the child grows and is incomplete before adulthood. This ‘softness’ can mean feet are very vulnerable to poorly fitting or inappropriate footwear.

SKIN CONDITIONS: There are a

number of childhood related skin conditions. Verruca is one of the most common in children. Verrucae are viral warts and Podiatrists can effect treatments for their destruction. There is Hand, Foot and Mouth; a viral infection that manifests on the soles of the feet. Fungal infections, Psoriasis and Eczema can also present on feet.

the position and function of the foot changes. Some children have significant abnormalities and the most common is “flat foot” (Excessive Pronation). This may never cause any problems but in many, may lead to considerable problems that go on to affect the feet, ankles, knees , hips and back. Think of the foot acting rather like the suspension on your car. If it doesn’t work very well it can cause a plethora of other problems. Podiatrists can carry out biomechanical examinations in children and adults and advise and treat as necessary.

Your Health

Get mentally tough! Matt Craven of The Grange Spa

Super psyched and ready to go… There are lots of ways to get on top of the mental aspect of sport and challenges, below I have given an outline that may come in handy on race day…

1. Make a training diary and commit – This can be in your head but it is much more effective when you write it down and tick it off. Plan your training days and rest days in detail. Write out what you plan to do and document the results. The results can help you to see where you are going right and where you need to improve. Write down your aims and objectives when you reach an aim tick it off and set a new goal. You can find training plans in sports specific magazines for all sorts of activities. Use this as a base and adapt as you see fit. Once you are in, you are all in! 2. Life is not fair – The sooner you accept this little gem the easier it becomes to man up and get on with things! You will make mistakes, so learn from them. You will get injured or have a few niggles, so you will need to learn to deal with this. Things will not always go to plan there will be dips in performance and sudden peaks, you must learn that these things are part of the deal, you must take the rough with the smooth to help you recover from the setbacks. 3. Visualisation-Beating Boredom – Long events can be a bit boring so you need to have a driving force. One option is to stake out the course the day before the event. Visualising the terrain helps to give you a good idea of where you are and how long you have to go. Some people like to come up with business ideas filling the time with productive thoughts. Personally I visualise the people I love waiting for me at the finish line seeing them in my head makes me happy also it is not an option to let them down! 4. Make a plan B, Plan C, Plan D… - Ask yourself “what if” you need to plan for the best and worst case scenarios and everything in-between. Make sure that the action plan is clear in your head, you do not need to write this down just make sure you know what you are going to do in the eventuality of it happening. Some things you will need to practice, for example if you are in a triathlon and you get a puncture on the bike leg you would need

to make sure you are carrying the correct tools and you will need to be very proficient at doing the actual task. Confidence in your ability and having alternative plans can really help keep you calm. 5. Manage your Inner Chimp – Learn to recognize the signs of when you are becoming emotionally charged. Many things will happen during a competitive situation and it is important to plant the correct autopilot! Everyone competing is focused on their performance and things happen, so this is ok, deal with it and move on as it will likely affect your performance in a negative way if you let it get the better of you. For more information please read Dr Steven Peters “The Chimp Paradox” 6. Stay focused on the job in hand – This is termed “Process Focus” there needs to be an element of staying in the room or focusing on what it is that you are doing for example; if you have a GPS device focus on your pace, keep placing one foot in front of the other, etc. STAY IN THE PRESENT ENJOY WHAT IS HAPPENING NOW. 7. You cannot win them all! – Sometimes you will come last, sometimes you won’t finish at all THIS IS OK. Go back to your diary and write down a detailed de-brief. Ask yourself what happened? How can you improve on it? What can you learn from the experience? What positives can you take from the experience? Then move on and get over it. 8. Smash it!! – This is a phrase a good friend of mine always uses basically what I mean by this is get excited. It is normal to feel nervous and have thoughts of trepidation but you must look past this, the task is no doubt going to be hard, that is after all the point, it is a challenge but you need to be 100% committed and up for it or you will not succeed.

Health & Beauty

Ear Candling

By Anne Marie Lilly,

Bowen Practitioner at Simply Beauty

How will it feel?

During treatment you may experience gentle heat around the ear and a feeling of pressure being released in the ears and sinuses. You may hear popping sounds and a pleasant crackling as the ingredients are burning.

After your treatment

After both ears have been treated you should rest for about 10 minutes. During this time a soothing scalp massage or massage of the neck, ears and face may be given. The therapist will then review any residue in the ear candles and provide you with further advice if needed.

Anything else I should know? What is it?

Ear candles are hollow tubes made from unbleached cotton or linen and hardened with beeswax.

Origins

Ear candling is an ancient practice used for centuries in many cultures. In Mexico, cones are placed next to the ear to aid healing. Hopi Indians used ear candles before battle supposedly to increase their awareness. Ear candling was also widely practised in Italy, Spain and Eastern Europe, using materials such as rolled tobacco leaves and waxed cloth or paper. Other names given to ear candling include coning, thermo or thermal auricular therapy and thermotherapy.

Who benefits from Ear Candling?

It is suitable for most adults and older children. All treatments begin with a consultation to ensure ear candling is suitable for you, anyone with a perforated ear drum or ear infections would not be treated.

Benefits of Ear Candling

Relaxation and stress relief. Stimulation of local energy flow. The softening and loosening of compacted earwax Relief from sinus problems, headaches and snoring. Relief from hayfever. Easing pressure problems before and after flying or diving. Temporary relief from tinnitus. Reduced irritation of the ear canal Ear fluid circulation.

It is advisable to avoid water sports and swimming for 24hours after treatment. Ears should be kept warm especially in cold weather as they may feel slightly more sensitive to the environment after treatment. Hearing may seem more acute after treatment. You may feel a little tired or very relaxed.

Safety Issues

It is essential you choose a therapist who is fully qualified and insured. The Federation of Holistic Therapists (FHT) is the largest therapy association in the UK and maintains high standards of practice by member therapists, ensuring high quality treatments for the protection and benefit of the public and follow a stict code of professional practice and ethics. Anne Marie Lilly - Holistic Therapist and Practitioner of the Bowen Technique. “I use Ear Candles handmade in Lincolnshire and these are reputed to give a certain immunity to pollen allergies and especially aid those suffering from hayfever. It is advisable to have one or two Ear Candle treatments before the onset of the hayfever season as it lessens the symptoms and severity of hayfever. However the treatment can still help once the hayfever is established.

What happens during a treatment?

It will last for approximately 45 minutes. The therapist will do a brief examination of your ear to check for inflammation. You will then lie on your side on a couch. A protective cloth with a slit will be placed over the ear and an ear candle will be gently inserted into the opening of the ear.

Ray Pawlett looks at how Tai Chi can help us all

BULLYING AND THE EMOTIONS ‘No one can make you feel inferior without your consent’Eleanor Roosevelt. ‘Bullying can affect any one of us, at any age, whether 8 or 80. Bullying does not just include physical abuse, but also verbal, indirect, social alienation, cyber bullying or intimidation - and can break our world’ – Linda Jane White MBACP (Accred). UKRCP Registered Counsellor, based at Wake House, Bourne. 07798 922064, lindajanewhite@talktalk.net.

M

y birthday is in August, which made me one of the youngest in my year at school. I was also fairly small compared with some of the other lads and usually top of the class for several subjects. This made me an obvious target for the bullies of the school. Recently, I met another guy who had the same sort of treatment that I did in those years. We are both in our mid 40’s now so school was a long time ago. The recent press coverage about bullying brought the conversation to the subject of bullying. He still has bad dreams about schooldays and much of it is a blur in his memory. The pattern of bullying has continued for him – he struggles to stand up to his boss at work and drinks too much. I can look back at my school days and remember good times along with the bad. To just try to remember the good times and forget the bad would be to “plaster over the cracks”, and I have not done that. So what is the difference? I asked my friend that question. His answer was to do with the fact that I have learned how to defend myself using Tai Chi and other martial arts. The logic was that if I was attacked that I

could do something about it. His answer was only partially correct. The emphasis on traditional martial arts like Tai Chi is about not using it for violence. Violence only breeds more violence. Bullying can affect people in many ways, in general though it will affect the emotions and the sense of empowerment. In Energy work, the language we use is that the second and third chakras have been damaged. This can manifest in many ways. For example, if it is the sense of empowerment is over compensating, it can lead to the victim being a bully or it can be completely flattened, meaning that the victim lives the life of a victim. This is of course a simplification but it gives the general point. Tai Chi, meditation and counselling can help to heal the damage and balance the energies within a person of any age – whether they are being bullied now or have been bullied 30 years ago. Build a new image of yourself and go forward into the world with the strength to carry it. Then your soul will have learned a lesson and the energetic connections with your old demons will have been cut forever!

Legal Corner

Your questions answered!

Have you got a legal question? Email editorial@discoveringbourne.co.uk

Wish You Were Here? With the summer holiday season fast approaching many of us will be looking forward to that well-earned rest from work or maybe a chance to spend time with our family. Sometimes, arranging and agreeing your holiday can cause problems.

T

he vast majority of employers try hard to meet their legal obligations to their staff. Many go beyond the minimum legal holiday requirements of 5.6 weeks or 28 days for a full time (5 days a week) employee. You do not have an automatic right to take bank or public holidays off work. The minimum legal requirement includes bank holidays, so as a full time employee you are not entitled to 28 days holiday plus another eight days bank holiday. Your employer will usually have a leave year. Some leave years start on 1 January and finish on 31 December. Others start on 6 April and finish on 5 April the following year. Generally , if you start your job partway through the leave year, the amount of leave you get depends on how much of the leave year you have worked. If in doubt always check your employment contract You are obliged to give notice of your intention to take holiday. The general requirement is that you give at least twice as many days notice as the number of days you wish to take as holiday. So, for example if a you want to take 2 days holiday you need to give 4 days notice. This can be varied by your employment contract so if your employers want a longer period of notice for holidays it must be in your contract of employment. You should also ensure you know how holidays will be allocated, e.g. a first come first served basis this will prevent any nasty surprises if you

18

have paid for your holiday before booking it off work. If your contract says that holidays can be carried over to the next leave year, this must be complied with. If you have been unable to take holiday leave due to long-term sickness, then your right to holiday carries over Part time staff should be treated no less favourably than an equivalent full-timer. If an employer gives extra days off to full-time staff that right should be extended on a pro-rata basis to part time staff.

Delivering Simple Financial Advice - That really works 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.

Using a pension to pay off your mortgage

t’s not a new idea, but it could be one of the options for some of the 1.3 million householders that the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) estimate will not have the savings or other funds to pay off their interest only mortgage (BBC News 2nd May 2013). If you have an interest only mortgage, your monthly payments will only be paying off the interest on the amount borrowed. At the end of the agreed term you need to pay back the capital that you used to buy the house. In the past householders have used endowment policies, ISAs or some other form of funding plan, however recently interest only mortgages have become much more popular. A more tax efficient way of paying off your mortgage might be to include retirement planning as quite often the end of the mortgage is quite closely linked to retirement. Most will appreciate that a pension fund can provide a tax free lump sum of 25% of the total fund value, the remainder can then generate an income or

you could delay taking income depending on your circumstances. Another benefit of saving in a pension fund is that you get tax relief up to your highest rate within certain parameters. This means that a contribution of £800 actually invests £1,000, so that’s a pretty good increase in fund size straight away, add to that investment performance potential and the total retirement pot starts to take shape. Without going into too much detail, there are also schemes like Salary Sacrifice and requesting your employer to make payments on your behalf that can make contributions even more tax efficient. So whether you expect to have a mortgage liability to settle before you retire or not you may find a meeting with me time well spent. Delivering Simple Financial Advice – that really works! Call me to arrange a free initial meeting and benefit from my experience.

Home Improvements

By Yasmin Chopin, Local Interior Designer

IDEAS FROM THE HIGH STREET If you enjoy window shopping, (a good holiday pastime), keep an eye out for design ideas to bring home. Here are two examples of how colour is used to prompt people to buy:-

Casa Hogar

This is a Spanish housewares store, Casa Hogar, in Valencia. Items are displayed in colour groups rather than functional groups. This is good signposting; you know that if you want an orange cutlery tray you go to the orange aisle. Cleverly, you might also be tempted to buy an orange tea towel or soap tidy. How can you take this idea home? I think it shows how attracted we are to colour especially when it is so generously displayed. Look around your home and see if you can draw together some interesting combinations. Suddenly that odd pink candlestick looks attractive in front of a vase of pink flowers. Set the pretty napkin you have in the linen cupboard beneath, and then behind place the large pink framed watercolour you never knew where to put. Find a few other bits and bobs and you have a little cameo. Grouping by colour makes things work together in a fascinating way and you can change the display every so often. Have some fun and demonstrate your playful side!

Ollie & Nic

This is the Ollie & Nic store in London. Here we see a mass and a mixture of colour with goods being displayed against various coloured patterned wallpapers. Customers linger longer in shops like this and don’t feel intimidated because the pastel colours and mix of pattern is welcoming and friendly. Taking this idea home we can replicate the nostalgic feel using retro wallpaper (use more than one in the same room if you are confident). This style will make a large hall more inviting; introduce nooks and crannies with open shelving and mirrors. And the old fashioned look can be brought right into your lounge or bedroom with second hand flea market finds bought with an eye for a bargain. Harking back to the past shows we care about the future and cherish our possessions. If this is how you feel inside then share it with your friends and family in the way you style your home.

Yasmin works in the East Midlands and East of England. She also runs courses and workshops and speaks to groups. See her website for details www.yasminchopin.com For more decorating ideas join me at my next workshop on 15 June 20

June

any types of hedges can be given their first clipping of the season this month, which will help them keep their shape and stimulate fresh growth. Older hedges may need just a small trim, but young actively growing hedges should be given a substantial prune. Remember to weed underneath the hedge as well. After weeding, add a layer of mulch to suppress any weeds from reappearing. The lawn will be growing fast now and will continue to do so throughout summer so a good weekly cut is essential to keep it looking neat. Young tomatoes should be planted outside if they haven’t been already. Side shoots from your tomato plants should be snapped or pinched off as this will help direct the plants energy to the fruit growing on the main stem. Unless you are growing your tomatoes in hanging baskets, it’s a good idea to tie up to canes or supports as your tomato plants are likely to grow some height and get heavy. If possible, always add the supports at the same time as you plant to avoid stabbing the roots later on. Bear in mind all tomato plants are susceptible to whitefly attacks, so consider placing some pots of basil and marigolds near them - they act as a natural insect repellent. While you’ve got the canes out for your tomatoes remember any tall growing plants such as delphiniums, lupins, poppies and climbers need a frame work or canes and string around them to help prevent them being damaged by winds. June is a great month to plant summer bedding plants such as begonias, marigolds, petunias and lobelia. Before planting give the plants a good soaking of water. If it’s a sunny day then try and plant them in the late afternoon or early evening. Don’t forget to water well again after planting. Plant summer hanging baskets with a mixture of upright and trailing plants, such as geraniums, osteospermums, fuchsias and petunias. Mixing contrasting colours, such as lime-green leaves and wine-coloured flowers, is always eye catching. Choose a sunny spot for your hanging basket and remember to water at least once a day, or more frequently, when it’s hot and dry or windy. Regular feeding – once per week in the summer – will also help your basket plants thrive. C

Rose

From hybrid teas to floribundas and shrub roses, standards, climbers and ramblers, there is a rose for every situation, be it a hedge, groundcover, border or container. Breeding has produced many flower shapes and dozens of colours from creams, whites and pastels to intense primary reds and yellows. Many of these will also be highly scented. Regular feeding with a rose feed helps maintain vigour and regular dead heading will ensure your rose blooms for as long as possible.

Motoring News

Article by John Siddle Lincolnshire Road Safety Partnership

Speed Cameras

Love them or loathe them!

As part of the Department for Transport’s Rural Demonstration Project, the first ever average speed camera system was installed nearly 3 years ago on Lincolnshire’s roads. An 8 km stretch of the A52, east of Grantham has a SPECS 3 camera enforcement system in place. This government funded scheme aims to reduce death and injury at this site by 50% and will also be used to examine the effect of technology on vehicle speeds and driver behaviour. The A52 between Cold Harbour and Newton has had a significant collision problem for many years. Between 2003 and 2008, there were 28 accidents, half of which involved serious injury or death. Recent surveys have also shown that on average more than 1300 vehicles exceed the speed limit every day. The route also incorporates a problem site, approximately half way along, which has a sustained history of collisions involving injudicious overtaking. Despite a solid white line system being in place and the presence of yellow-backed ‘hidden dip’ signs and enhanced carriageway markings, collisions have continued to occur. Accident statistics for all permanent SPECS schemes show a significant reduction in the number of collisions and injuries.

24

Driver recognition is very high, resulting in improved behaviour and compliance with the speed limit. It was hoped that this installation would improve traffic flow, resulting in a safer, smoother and more reliable journey. Use of this type of system will invariably create uniform speeds, with less need for braking, larger headways and fewer collisions.

"

With an injury reduction of 46% and no fatals to date, we hail this project as a success, but it is only the compliance of the drivers that make it work

"

Nearly 3 years since the installation took place there have been 2 serious and 13 slight injury collisions compared to 2 fatal 3 serious and 17 slight injury collisions in the same time period prior to the camera installation. With an injury reduction of 46% and no fatals to date, we hail this project as a success, but it is only the compliance of the drivers that make it work.

Many myths surround speed cameras (some call them safety cameras – a spade is a spade!) Why isn't the money used to repair potholes? The same as a fine for dropping litter, all fines are paid to the Treasury. No organisation in the partnership makes money from speed enforcement cameras. The money collected from fines by Her Majesty's Court and Tribunal Service is sent directly to the Government. Cash cows to raise money! Speed cameras, in Lincolnshire, are placed where death or serious injury has already occurred.The purpose of speed cameras is to reduce the number of people killed and seriously injured in collisions on our roads. Do cameras have to be yellow? No, the Government and ACPO recommend that cameras have signage and a hi-visibility in their guidelines but there is no law regarding these guidelines. Does a speed camera have to be calibrated? No, Home office Type Approval does not require the equipment to calibrated

DiscoveringBourne April 2013 | www.discoveringbourne.co.uk


however, most Partnerships carry out calibration checks as a 'confidence' check to ensure future serviceability. Only around one third of speed cameras, in Lincolnshire, are live at any one time. Speed is constantly monitored on our roads, when the average speed rises enforcement is stepped up, as speeds drop down to compliant levels then enforcement is reduced. Lincolnshire Road Safety Partnership receives hundreds of requests for speed enforcement and speed surveys every year. Speed Seminars have proved to be popular with drivers who opt for an educational course rather than prosecution, to this end revenue from these courses provide other initiatives we can promote:

• Lincolnshire has an older than average population compared rest of the Country and each of the districts run courses to address road safety for mature drivers. • We address driver issues amongst those at work through an ‘employer’s charter’ which about 50 employers have or are adopting. The County Council itself has adopted a Driver Information programme for its entire staff that drive as a part of their role. • Motorcycle issues are addressed through targeted covert police motorcycle patrols and a ‘Bikesafe’ initiative to educate riders.

Hire a Harley Motorcycle

Want a Father's Day present with a difference? Then why not hire the latest model of Harley Davidson motorcycle from Sycamores Uppingham. Gift vouchers are available and bikes can be hired from just £100 a day. For more details and rider requirements please call 01572 823296.

The schemes listed are not exhaustive and are just a small part of the bigger road safety message that is provided in schools, colleges and the places of work throughout Lincolnshire.

Insurance Award for NFU

• Summer, as well as the traditional Christmas drink drive campaigns. • ‘2fast2soon’ scheme to address driver behaviour amongst young drivers. • Safe Young driver programme including the use of a skid car and crash simulator.

Pet’s Corner Does your dog scratch too much? By Tracey Longmuir of

Isis Pet Care

Problem:

“My dog has started itching around the face and ears and is scratching so hard he is making it sore and bleed, do you have any advice?” If you have any pet behaviour issues email info@discoveringbourne.co.uk

Answer: Oh dear, it’s a matter of elimination I’m afraid, if they are open wounds they are at risk to infection, so keeping the wounds clean is your first job! Next, check if he’s up to date with his flea treatments, if not give him a dose of the medication normally applied to the back of the neck, straight away. Also look at the food you’re feeding your dog, has it changed? Some dog food has ingredients that some dogs are allergic to, and like us this may be something that flares up due to a change in food or the ingredients. It can also develop as your dog gets older and becomes less tolerant to the ingredients. A Hypoallergenic food that is also free of additives is preferred to combat skin allergies.

26

Pamper your pet

In response to a skin allergy your vet may prescribe antihistamine and this may relieve the symptoms, however if it is an allergy, finding out what he’s allergic to could take months as any food change takes between 6 to 8 weeks to fully take effect.

Healthy Option Pet Food uses finest natural ingredients, natural preservatives, vitamins and minerals, doesn’t contain any sugars, colourings or ‘e’ numbers and it can help improve some health problems such as obesity, anal glands and some skin disorders. Isis Pet Care can deliver a 15kg bag free for £35 locally, contact Tracey on 07534 404932 or email tracey@isispetcare.com

It could also be the mites that cause mange so you will need to seek advice and treatment from your vets so not to let it get out of hand.

Don’t miss...

In more extreme cases you can ask to be referred to a dermatologist for further tests, but the good news is most issues with scratching are one of the above 3 reasons

Does your dog scratch too much? By Tracey Longmuir of

Thinking of adding a cat to your family? Why not try Stamford and District Cats Protection? We always have a selection of cats waiting for new homes. We are a group of volunteers who fit in looking after rescued cats and kittens around our jobs and families. The cats are housed in pens in our gardens, with a cosy sleeping compartment and an outdoor run for each cat. This means cats receive individual attention and foster carers get to know each one well, finding out what type of home will be most suitable for them. Some cats are keen for lots of company and like children, while others will be happy in a quieter home. They are all given a health check by a Vet, and vaccinated, treated for worms/fleas and neutered if necessary, before they are ready for re-homing. Cats stay with their fosterers until the right new home is found, however long it takes. Sometimes it’s only a few days but sometimes it can take several months. Cats come to us for a number of reasons, often because they are strays, or their owner can no longer keep them. Spaces are limited by the number of pens we have, so we can’t always take a cat in immediately, but we can add a cat’s details to our website and put them on a waiting list.

To find out about giving one of our cats a new home, please contact us via our website www.stamford.cats.org.uk or leave a message on our answer phone 01778 571343 and we will get back to you.

Sporting Spotlight - Golf

Get into golf and swing that thing!

Darren Game, PGA Golf Professional at Bourne Golf Studio discusses the rise in popularity of golf particularly with youngsters. With the London 2012 Olympic legacy being very strong in our community, golf is now an Olympic sport and will be included in 2016 Games in Rio. Golf is becoming a 'cool' sport and especially with children. Recently, a 14-year old boy qualified to play the first major of the year, the US Masters at Augusta while a 12-year old played in the China Open. So for all those budding youngsters out there, there is still plenty of time to be part of Rio '16? So,why play golf? A static ball, played at walking pace appeals to more people as it is not reliant on speed, reactions, strength or even a partner to play with. Not in many sports can a 93year old compete against a 14 year old on a level and with either party winning? That is exactly what happened at Augusta this year in the Par 3 Tournament.

Golf can be enjoyed by the whole family, with everyone playing to their best and together. It is a real sport, that exists beyond a playstation, Wii or x-box, it means being outdoors in the fresh air and local countryside. It can be a hobby as opposed to a sport of competition, of winning or losing - a father can enjoy quality time with his daughter as much as a son, likewise a mother can join in with her son and still feel a lady! Locally, junior and family lessons are available all year round at Bourne Golf Studio with Darren Game, PGA Professional. Darren is also junior Golf coordinator at Toft Country House Hotel & Golf Club, where junior coaching is available on Saturdays. This summer golf camps will be held at Westfield Primary Academy, with the aim to give children the perfect introduction to this fabulous sport.

BOURNE CLASSIC CAR & BIKE SHOW The Committee of Bourne Motor Racing Club are now putting the final touches to their plans for this year’s Classic Car & Bike Show, the 8th running of the event. The show will take place on The Wellhead Field in Bourne, Lincolnshire on Sunday June 9th 2013. Response from entrants once again has been excellent, and we have more vehicles promised for the show than ever before. The centrepiece of this years show is a display organised by Porsche Club Great Britain, who this year are celebrating 50 years of the iconic Porsche 911. This year, visitors who purchase a programme will be eligible to enter a prize draw where the winner will have the opportunity of a lifetime to attend a private test session at Silverstone and be driven around the circuit in an iconic Jaguar D Type Sportscar. Further prizes have also kindly been donated by local businesses. Subject to ground conditions, public parking will be available on the Wellhead Field for a small charge. As in previous years, entry into the show will be free. The Lazy Alligator Jazz Band are booked to perform, and a Punch & Judy Show will entertain the children. Bourne’s Heritage Museum will be open throughout the day, and the show will close with the judging of vehicles, and the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight flypast, which in the past has proved to be a popular part of the afternoon. Awards will also be made for the Lady & Gentleman most appropriately dressed for their vehicle. Anyone requiring more information, or wishing to enter either a classic vehicle (car or motorcycle) or race car should call 01733 253867 (evenings) or visit www. bourneclassiccarshow.co.uk to get an entry form.
