Introduction

Welcome to Your April Issue. Welcome to our April edition and I’m often surprised at just how quickly, within a few weeks, we’ve moved on from those cold, dark mornings and all of that snow – Bye bye Beast from the East! Blossom will soon be on show and summer is nearly upon us. I hope you find the wide range of topics included in this month’s magazine both informative and enjoyable. As ever, many thanks to all of the contributors and advertisers for their hard work and for your continuing support and words of encouragement. Enjoy the Easter competition, and best wishes for a happy Easter to you all.

One very busy month ahead, as Easter arrives, coinciding with April Fools’ Day this year – good enough reason to pull some jolly japes regarding chocolate and bunnies, I’d have thought. As Marks and Spencers make their grand entrance in Bourne, we feature the sad impending departure of Concept from North Street. On a similar theme of “one out and one in”, as “The Barber’s Chop” appears in South Street, I’m given the opportunity to wheel out one of my favourites, yet again (groans): “I see Neal’s aren’t cutting hair any longer – they’re cutting it shorter!” Thanks to Dena at Concept and to Keith at Neal’s for all those years of service to our town. On a personal note, the saying about the two London buses coming together, after waiting so long for one, will strike a chord in our family this month. Our daughter Polly follows up her first attempt at a marathon, in Paris on April 8th, with an encore on the streets of London a fortnight later. Good luck to her and all of the other fabulous fund-raisers whose last few months of training hell will have helped make it a heavenly outcome on April 22nd! Enjoy the read.

The Area’s Greatest Losers! Being the best at losing wouldn’t normally help you to scoop an award - yet Iain from Corby Glen and Lisa from Bourne have done just that, after being named ‘Greatest Loser’ 2018.

BEFORE JOINING SLIMMING WORLD

Between them, they have lost a life-changing 4st 5½ lbs, (27.9 kg!). Iain and Lisa are members of the The Salvation Army Slimming World group and are currently the members that have lost the most weight, and feel fabulous as a result. Iain, who has lost an inspiring 2st8lbs, (16.3 kg), and is now at his personal target weight, says, “There’s absolutely nothing wrong with being a loser when it feels this good! I had high blood pressure which has significantly dropped since losing the weight. I find the Extra Easy Food Plan simple to follow, and have never felt deprived. I also exercise regularly and my recovery times are much quicker. I definitely made the right decision to join Slimming World”. Lisa, has lost a fabulous 1st 11.5lbs, (11.6 kg), and says, “I didn’t have a clue about Slimming World, but was inspired by Tori’s weight loss to join. People think slimming means going hungry, eating nothing but salad or obsessively counting every calorie you eat, but it’s not like that at all with Slimming World. I really enjoy the club’s Extra Easy Food Optimising plan, where you can virtually make any meal “Slimming World friendly”.

AFTER JOINING SLIMMING WORLD

I’ve learned how to make small changes, like using lean meat or cooking with low calorie spray instead of oil or butter. It fits in really well with the rest of my family, and we can all eat the same meals. I know that I haven’t ‘gone on a diet’; this is a change that I’ve made for life and I have now learnt the tools to be able to keep it up. I love our 7.30pm group; it’s so friendly and I’ve made some great new friends”. Tori, who runs the The Salvation Army Slimming World group, says: “The changes I’ve seen, not only in Iain and Lisa but the whole group, are incredible. I hope their success will inspire other people in Bourne who’d like to lose weight by forming new lifestyle habits and become happier and healthier, to take action.” The group meets every Thursday at 5.30pm and 7.30pm at The Salvation Army, Manning Road, Bourne and to join, call Tori on 07849 095520 or just pop in. Group details are also on Facebook: Slimming World Bourne with Tori - Every Thursday, The Salvation Army.

Concept – Closing Down but it’s not Goodbye Now, sadly, Concept will be closing its doors for the final time at the end of June, and the retailing landscape of our small, but expanding, market town will be much the poorer as a consequence. From Monday March 26th, Dena will be slashing prices on many selected items by 15%, and this offer is likely to prove very popular, so make sure you don’t miss out!

It has been thirty years since Concept started trading from its North Street shop in Bourne. Dena Edis became the sole proprietor in 2006, and since then, (as reported in this magazine in April 2015), Dena and her staff have worked hard at maintaining this “wonderful example of what every town should have – a wealth of quality items to beautify any home, to add that finishing touch, or to make that special present a truly memorable one”.

Dena is planning to remain within the trade, however, and will have a stand at Heckington Show, near Sleaford, on July 28th / 29th; Sandringham Game Fair on September 8th; and Witham Hall School Fair on November 10th.

Well regarded for stocking an eclectic mix of products, brands such as Crabtree & Evelyn, Wrendale, and Gisela Graham have all proven popular with regular customers. Seasonal decorations, beautiful greeting cards and all manner of trinkets, accessories and soft furnishings have also added to Concepts long-standing reputation.

Hoping also to re-acquaint herself with Bourne, Dena plans to return in December for the Christmas Fayre. In the meantime, she thanks everyone who has helped and supported her over the years.

Health

Sleep your Way to the Skin of your Dreams by Claire Saunders, Renu - Health, Beauty & Fitness

A

lack of sleep can have a major impact on mood, weight control, concentration, memory and our health and wellbeing. A good night’s sleep is not just vital for our body and mind – it is necessary for keeping our skin in tip-top condition too. Night time is when your skin cells are at their most productive, meaning they are repairing any damage done throughout the day. Here are Claire’s five top tips for a good night’s sleep.

1

Have a regular sleep pattern Try to go to bed at around the same time every evening and get up at around the same time every morning.

2

Avoid “Blue Light” Watching television, or scrolling phones and Ipads stimulates a chemical in the brain that will make it very difficult to sleep. Turn your electronic gadgets and the television off an hour before bed, have a bath, make a plan of action for the next day, or do some relaxation techniques that work for you. If you are struggling to sleep, read a book (not a kindle), the left to right action of the eyes has a hypnotic effect.

3

Check your diet Alcohol may help you get off to sleep, but it will disrupt you early in the morning. High sugar foods can hinder you

getting to sleep or cause you to be wide awake in the early hours. Caffeine and nicotine are stimulants that will also keep you awake. These should all be avoided if you have trouble sleeping. Magnesium stimulates hormones in the body that help regulate sleep, relieve anxiety and calm the nervous system. You find magnesium through drinking water and eating green vegetables, nuts, meat, fish and fruit. Try taking a supplement of 200 – 300 mg per day and see if it makes a difference

4

Cleanse your room The ideal temperature for sleep is considered to be around 17 degrees. Make sure you open your window for a few minutes every day (even in the depths of winter). This will cleanse your room and remove toxins in the air that will hinder your relaxation.

5

Try Aromachology Lack of sleep is a worldwide beauty enemy, and Decleor have introduced aromachology into their night balms to aid relaxation and help increase the quality of sleep. During the night, your skin’s renewal process is at its peak, so their newly formulated night balms feed and restore the skin whilst particular aromatherapy oils aid relaxation and improve your quality of sleep. For more details on these, please pop into the salon or book our Sleep Enhancing Facial.

Explore the Wonders of Incredible Iceland

Clare Lockett

Travel Counsellor

The beauty of Iceland’s tourism is that it is accessible and enjoyable all year round. Despite the lack of opportunity to get a sun tan, (with temperatures hovering around freezing point in the winter and 12°C in summer), the “land of fire and ice” is more an attraction for the eyes, not the skin. Jaw-dropping vistas, incredible natural attractions and bucket-list destinations are all part of what makes this country so special. The only problem is trying to narrow down your choices to fit the time you have there – so here are some Icelandic highlights that you can enjoy: Golden Circle The Icelandic “holy trinity” comprises Thingvellir National Park, (where visitors can see the converging lines of the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates), the powerful Gullfoss, (Europe’s largest waterfall by volume), and the erupting hot springs at Geysir. If you’re going to do one thing on your trip to Iceland, make sure it’s this! Blue Lagoon Another hotspot, quite literally, is the Blue Lagoon. This geothermal spa is set in a lava field in Grindavík and, in addition to its luminous blue waters, there is a range of lounges, spa amenities and treatments that visitors can enjoy. The waters are rich in minerals such as silica and sulphur, and bathing in the Blue Lagoon is renowned for its health benefits. Northern Lights Iceland is famous for being one of the best destinations to catch a glimpse of the amazing Aurora Borealis, (the Northern Lights). See these amazing green lights dance across

the night’s sky on one of a number of excursions on offer, usually at the height of its activity from November to March. Exciting adventures There are so many options! Snorkel between two continents at Slifra, which is also known for having the world’s clearest water; ride a snowmobile across one of Iceland’s 200-plus glaciers; go whale watching off the western coast; or visit a man-made ice tunnel inside Langjökull, as you go into the glacier. Exploring Reykjavík The world’s northernmost capital, and Iceland’s only city, might not have the allure of other big-ticket attractions, but there is plenty to see and do. In addition to being the cultural and arts hub of a nation, Reykjavík offers visitors plenty in the way of activities and events year-round. Whether it’s swimming, museums, high street shopping or simply taking in the mountainous surroundings which provide the stunning backdrop to city life, there’s something for everyone in Reykjavík. Take a trip to the Lutheran church, and national landmark, Hallgrímskirkja; find out more about Icelandic history at the National Museum of Iceland; or take a ferry ride to Videy Island, where Yoko Ono’s Imagine Peace Tower stands. If you would like to find out more on this exciting destination, please contact us; we would love to help arrange your next adventure.

Bourne Galletly Medical Practice New Build, New GPs, More Appointments

Building work continues apace since our last article, with foundations, external walls to roof height and all ground floor internal walls now being in place. Our contractors, (D Brown Ltd), continued to work hard through the recent inclement weather, when the site was only closed for just one day. For those patients who have recently attended the Practice, you will have noticed that the building work is now having some limited impact on our existing facilities, and we ask for patience and co-operation while the work continues. Nevertheless, all areas remain in operation, and we continue to deliver our full range of services. We would like to welcome two new, additional GPs to our team: Dr Cathy Fawcett and Dr Lindsay Bomford, both experienced GPs from within the local area. Our clinical team now comprises seven GPs, two Advanced Nurse Practitioners, five Specialist Practice Nurses and our Health Care Assistant team. Soon we will also see the addition of a Senior Clinical Pharmacist providing specialist medication advice and long-term condition management. These additions form an integral part of our plans for additional services. We would also like to thank our team for their hard work during the recent unprecedented high demand placed upon NHS services over the winter months. As a result of their efforts and our ground-breaking appointment system, all our patients received assistance on the day it was requested. This meant that, from December 18th to March 9th, we responded to an additional 6,713 requests for medical assistance from our patients, above what we would normally expect, without the need to pre-book, call back the next day or to queue. All patients receive an initial call from a GP or Advanced Nurse Practitioner to discuss their problem, thus ensuring professional clinical input from the patient’s very first contact with the Practice.

Health

The Gut Brain Superhighway Gut Focused hypnotherapy

O

ur brain and gut are intrinsically connected. We have ‘gut feelings’ about a person or event, and feel ‘butterflies’ in our stomach when something exciting happens. Neuroscientists have become increasingly aware that our gut may hold key insights into brain function. The gut has a ‘mini-brain’, a network of neurons called the enteric nervous system. The brain and enteric nervous system talk, and the shared communication line between the two is often called the gut-brain axis - “the gut-brain superhighway”. The gut communicates with the brain via hormones released into the bloodstream that cross the blood brain barrier, controlling our desire for food. For example, the gut hormone ghrelin tells us when we’re hungry, and other hormones such as glucagon-like peptide tell us when we’re full. The gut also makes neurotransmitters such as serotonin, the happy chemical which keeps us calm, help us cope, keep in control, and see things from a good perspective. If we are stressed or anxious, the production of serotonin slows down. In the gut, specialised cells lining the wall of the gut make and secrete serotonin where it plays an important role in controlling the wave-like contractions of the gut walls that squeeze food/ waste along the digestive tract. This action becomes irregular if we are stressed or anxious, contributing to the symptoms of IBS, and this in turn often increases the negative emotional states associated with the condition, creating an unhelpful cycle of emotional upset and physical discomfort. “How we think affects our gut” Bloating, constipation, cramps and diarrhoea are some of the physical symptoms of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). It can cause extensive anxiety, worry and embarrassment that can negatively

affect all aspects of a person’s life from their relationships, work, and social activities. IBS sufferers usually feel trapped, and have to plan their lives meticulously around the nearest toilet or exit. Gut bacteria are also important as they make the chemicals such as serotonin, dopamine and acetylcholine. Gut bacteria talk to the enteric nervous system and the brain; the presence of a good balance of bacteria helps balance chemicals and emotions. Solution Focused Hypnotherapy can help Hypnotherapy can help break this cycle. It can help reduce anxiety and stress levels, which can lead to improvements in the frequency and intensity of symptoms (including pain), but it can also help sufferers to develop strategies to effectively deal with stress and anxiety for longer-term improvements. In addition to this, it can help individuals to take control of their lives and to build confidence and self-esteem.

Health

PRACTITIONER PROFILE - Jake Somers BTEC Level 5 - Remedial sports massage therapist - Providing head-to-toe treatments for your recovery Why did you choose sports massage? I became interested in sports massage therapy following an injury I sustained falling off my mountain bike. I went over the handle bars, landing on the back of my head, and over stretched my neck and back. My whole body went into a state of protection; with painful widespread muscle spasms which locked up most of my neck, shoulders and upper back so I could hardly move. My brother suggested seeing a massage therapist and just two treatments later I felt fixed. I was really impressed by this and fascinated by his skill, knowledge and treatment techniques that, two weeks later, I enrolled! Where did you study and where do you work now? I began my studies at Peterborough Regional College, whilst juggling a full-time job as a boat builder during the day. I progressed through the

course levels before finishing my studies in London at “Essentials for Health School of Massage”, with a BTEC Level 5 qualification in Sports Injury and Recovery, (the highest), having had the privilege of working with some of the best teachers in the field. I currently work at the Wellhead Practice in Bourne and in the Empire Gym in Market Deeping. What type of patients do you see? I see a variety of patients, ranging from children to the elderly and from athletes to those requiring post-operative rehabilitation to improve their mobility. I treat the whole body from head to toe, covering a wide range of problems with joints and muscles caused by many things, ranging from actual sports injury to those related to poor posture. What do you enjoy about sports massage? The best part of my job is seeing the results of the therapy and how it affects people’s lives. There is nothing better than to be thanked for helping

someone completely recover from an injury or issue that has caused them pain and discomfort for some time. What can people expect? Everyone can expect a high level of respect, empathy and commitment to finding the root cause of their issue. I understand how an injury can affect all aspects of your life and I am determined and looking forward to making a difference. When not at work, what do you like to get up to? I’m a keen adventurist mountain biker (still – despite the fall!) I enjoy hiking, climbing and camping. I guess I just enjoy the great outdoors, the fresh air, coastal landscapes and all that comes with it.

Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust Bourne Area Group

T

he Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust, established over sixty years ago, is the prime organisation focused on conserving our county’s wildlife and wild places. The Trust now manages almost a hundred reserves, protecting and restoring those areas most special for wildlife, and providing access for people to enjoy them. The Trust has several volunteerled Area Groups across the county. The group centred on Bourne will celebrate its fiftieth anniversary next year. So, what does the group do? Over winter, we run a series of indoor talks, in the Bourne Methodist Hall, to which all are welcome (donation of £1.50 requested). During the summer, we have a series of field outings to reserves and other areas of interest. However, our key annual events are Open Days at two local reserves, Dole Wood and Deeping Lakes. Dole Wood is a fragment of ancient woodland with a carpet of bluebells in the spring; the open day this year is on Sunday April 15th , to coincide with the spring flowers, when there will be guided walks, activities for children, plant sales and home-made cakes and refreshments. The wood is a short walk off Obthorpe Lane, south of Thurlby. We will have similar activities at our Deeping Lakes open day on Sunday June 3rd. These former gravel pits host a range of wildlife, including wintering and breeding wildfowl, dragonflies and resident otters (which are seen frequently). But you don’t need to wait for an open day to visit the reserves; they are open all year for quiet enjoyment. Other reserves around Bourne include, along the river Glen, Baston Fen, Thurlby Fen Slipe and Willow Tree Fen, the latter an exciting project which has transformed a former arable farm into rich wetland. To the west, we have woodlands such as Lawn Wood and Meadows, and Tortoiseshell Wood, and a jewel of flower and butterfly-rich grassland at Robert’s Field, and more. The group is always looking for volunteers. Work parties doing practical conservation work meet on a Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday. Ideal if you want to get your hands dirty, meet some new people and make a positive contribution to conservation. Details of all the Trust’s reserves and how to become a Trust member are available at http://www.lincstrust.org.uk/.

MARKS AND SPENCER UNVEILS NEW FOODHALL TO BOURNE COMMUNITY Bourne residents gathered at Burghley Shopping Centre on Wednesday March 14th to join M&S for the opening of its new Foodhall. Store Manager, Isabel Meyer, marked the opening with her fifty M&S colleagues – many recruited from the local area – by cutting the ribbon at 10am and welcoming the first customers into store. Bourne’s new Foodhall showcases the very best of M&S’s quality food

and drink and, with Easter just around the corner, the store has everything needed for celebratory dining – from show stopping main dishes to sumptuous desserts. For the ultimate centrepiece, M&S’s British Boneless Rib of Beef with Porcini Stuffing is ideal for dinner parties and the Easter Nest Cake, complete with chocolate buttercream and decorated with sugar coated chocolate eggs, will make for the perfect dessert to enjoy with friends and family of all ages. With three quarters of online M&S customers collecting in store, customers at Bourne can use M&S’s popular Click & Collect service. This provides the option of having M&S.com Clothing and Home orders delivered to the store the next day, free of charge. In addition, customers can make

NEW CHARITY TAKES CONTROL OF BOURNE TOWN HALL Occupation of Bourne’s disused Georgian Town Hall has been officially handed over at a special ceremony to a new local charity, set up to restore it to its former glory. The event celebrated the formal signing of the documents that will pass the administration of the building to the charity, plus a ceremonial presentation of the keys by Lincolnshire County Council, the current custodians of the building. The event was attended by many supporters of the project and local dignitaries, including Martin Hill, (Leader of Lincolnshire County Council), Bourne’s Mayor, Paul Fellows, and David Brailsford, (Chair of Lincolnshire County Council’s Bourne Town Hall Management Committee). The magnificent building, constructed in 1821, has now been placed in control of the Bourne Town Hall Trust, which has been set up to fully renovate the building before sympathetically converting it into a Community Arts Centre for the town and surrounding villages. The

Trust now has to raise the funds to see the project through to completion, which will include reinstating the original clock tower, which was destroyed by a fire in 1933. Chairman of the Trust, Charles Houseago, said: “Today marks a major milestone in our project to restore the Town Hall and convert into an arts centre for the whole of the local community to use and enjoy again. Lincolnshire County Council has given us magnificent support so far in helping us to maintain the building while it was empty, and we are extremely grateful to them. We must also thank Bourne Town Council for their fantastic support over the past two years, and local solicitors, Double & Megson, who donated their time to help complete the legal undertakings.” The Trust is still on the lookout for enthusiastic volunteers who can help it raise the funds. In addition, the team are specifically keen to bring on board a Trustee with financial qualifications or experience. If you can help, please e-mail: info@ bournetownhall.org.uk.

Giving Something Back Do you have some spare time on your hands? Are you at home, wondering if there is something you could do to help support your local community? Would you like to meet new people and become involved with some exciting social activities? If you have answered ‘yes’ to any of these questions, then we would love to hear from you! Bourne Salvation Army Community Church needs you! Volunteering is a great opportunity to learn new skills, gain experience, make new friends and know that you are giving something back to the community. Whether you only have an hour, half a day or several days - anything given will be greatly appreciated. If you enjoy spending time with people and have some skills you’d like to share, we’d encourage you to find out more. Your skills are valuable, and the rewards of supporting others are immense – volunteers often tell us that they receive much more than they give.

Shoe Firm’s Amazing Feat! A Bourne family shoe business has scooped its eighth national accolade in just seven years – making it the most successful independent company since the industry’s ‘Oscars’ were launched. North Shoes, trading from North Street since 1876, has been named “Independent Family Footwear Retailer of the Year” for the second time in the Footwear Industry Awards, and has now won more gongs than any other retailer at the awards, which salute quality and innovation in the footwear retail industry. The feat earned praise from the awards’ organisers. Sue Wiseman, General Manager with Datateam Business Media, said: “James North and North Shoes have thoroughly deserved the success. James is very proactive and is always happy to speak to other retailers. He has been very successful with eight awards in seven years and we thank him for his continued

support, not just of the awards, but of the footwear industry.” Managing Director, James North, the fifth generation at the helm of the family firm, which also has stores in Stamford, Oundle and Cambridge, collected the honour at the Footwear Industry Awards presentation evening at the National Conference Centre in Birmingham. He said: “We’re so proud of our record and delighted to win the “Independent Family Footwear Retailer of the Year” award for a second time. It sums up what we’re all about; a family business fitting the family - mum, dad and the kids - with their shoes. These values are so important to us. The awards are voted for by our peers – reps, suppliers and people in the trade. They see what we do every day in our stores and it means so much that our ethos shines through to them.”

North Shoes Managing Director, James North (centre), receives the “Independent Family Footwear Retailer of the Year 2018 Award” from Will Cheung, (right), Sales Manager for Skechers UK and Ireland, the awards’ sponsors. With them is the host of the event, comedian Sean Collins. North Shoes, who have received accolades every year since the awards were launched in 2012, were also shortlisted in two other categories this year – “Ladies Independent Footwear Retailer of the Year” and “Fashion Independent Footwear Retailer of the Year”.

Grease is the word….! #Theshowmustgoon, was the mantra of Bourne Academy students when their performance of Grease was postponed, due to “The Beast from the East”. However, the best things come to those who wait, which was proven by the talented students who performed over three nights, to a sell-out audience. This year’s production has been hailed as ‘the best one yet,’ with over eighty students from years 7-13 taking part in either performance or production roles. The audience were singing and dancing in their 30

D I S C O V E R I N G

seats, with some members of the audience coming to watch it a second and third time. The entire cast performed with extreme maturity and portrayed their roles with believability and gusto. The Pink Ladies and T-Birds were performed with great confidence, bringing the iconic characters to life. Popular characters from the original movie were easily identified; for example, comic nerd, Eugene, and annoying cheerleader, Patty. All of the cast worked with sheer professionalism and creativity to make the whole performance a huge team effort, highlighting the vast amount of talent at Bourne Academy. The production team and live band also worked with flair and efficiency which enhanced the performance with creative lighting decisions, outstanding

Bourne

costumes, brilliant organisation and wonderful musicians. Mrs Parker, (Head of Performing Arts), said: “I am immensely proud of every single individual who took part in the production, whether it was working front of house, being part of the production team, performing in the band, or a member of the cast. They all worked with determination and showed a huge dedication to the arts. They made the whole process enjoyable and faultless, and we feel privileged to be working with such talented and determined young people.” a p r il 2 0 1 8


Gardening

The Potting Shed As temperatures rise, (we hope), and days lengthen, there is plenty to do on the allotment or vegetable patch: sowing, weeding and planting. However, beware as there is always a threat of night frosts and it is better to be cautious than to take a risk, as precious time will be wasted: don’t forget to cover early sowings with fleece or cloches if frosts are forecast. Now is an ideal time to prepare seed beds; so that seeds have a good chance of germinating, the soil should be broken down into small even sized particles and stones and other debris removed. Rake over the soil when it is fairly dry to level it, so that dips and hollows are smoothed out to create a flat surface that will drain more evenly. Create a fine tilth by dragging the rake back and forth, forwards at a shallow angle and backwards at 90 degrees to create the small even particles. If you forgot to manure in the autumn, you can still add really well-rotted manure or compost, but dig it in thoroughly. When they have developed two or more true leaves, young seedlings that were planted in trays or modules need “pricking out” and putting into individual pots or larger modules. Lift them out carefully and always handle them by their leaves, not the stem. Keep an eye on them once they are in pots because, if it is too early to plant them out, they may become pot-bound – re-plant them in larger pots. Also, plants that have been raised indoors should be acclimatised by putting them outside during warmer days and bringing them in at night. Jobs to do this month include:• Earth-up early potatoes.

• Plant second early and main crop potatoes. • Last chance to plant onion sets. • The majority of root crops can be sown now and it is probably your last chance to sow parsnips. • Sow sweetcorn - an interesting way of germinating sweetcorn is by pre-chitting: - lay the seeds on a layer of damp kitchen paper then place a layer of paper over in an airtight box. Check daily and when a small white sprout appears, plant the seed about half to an inch deep in potting compost. • Plant asparagus crowns by the end of the month. • Sow the following outdoors but under cover; beetroot (if the soil is cold and wet), cucumbers, lettuces, turnips, oriental leaves and salad leaves. • Don’t forget to regularly hand weed or hoe around seedlings as the weeds appear, as they create a lot of competition for food and moisture. • Make sure that fruit trees, canes and bushes are kept watered, as any fruit planted in the last 18 months is susceptible to drought damage. Adding mulch around the base will help. • Sow maincrop peas and make the last sowing of summer broad beans. • Put up pea sticks and build cane supports ready for climbing beans while the ground is still soft. Happy planting!

Your Finances

How Financially Resilient Are You? by Paul Ross, Financial Planner at Landmark IFA Ltd

Y

Income protection can also offer an increasing benefit to offset the effects of inflation.

ou insure your car, home and maybe even your pets, but what about insuring what pays for all of this …. your income? Income Protection is arguably one of the most important insurances, yet it is widely overlooked. It pays out a regular tax-free income, should you be unable to work due to accident or sickness. It is not the same as private medical insurance, which is designed to cover the cost of medical expenses.

employed, where financial resilience could be the weakest.

Most employees can receive Statutory Sick Pay (SSP) at £88.45 per week, for up to 28 weeks, subject to income tax and national insurance. After this period, you may be able to apply for Employment and Support Allowance (ESA), subject to a “work capability assessment”.

The fine print of different contracts is important, as definitions of disability vary considerably. “Own occupation” offers the best protection, but policies with “any” occupation basis, and “suited” occupation basis also exist. The definitions of disability affect the premiums payable, with “own occupation” policies often carrying higher premiums.

State support is also available on mortgages up to £200,000 for helping to meet mortgage interest payments, but it does not cover any capital repayments. The waiting period for this has increased from 13 to 39 weeks. From April 2018, the basis of this system will change to a loan rather than a benefit. Because of this, it is even more important that people are able to protect their home and family, if they are unable to work due to illness or accident. This is also of particular interest for the self-

Policies which are linked to mortgages have a limited benefit period, usually just two years, and can also cover you against unemployment. These are known as Accident Sickness and Unemployment (ASU) policies. Income protection pays out until a return to work, a specific date in the future – usually normal retirement age or death, whichever occurs soonest. Many pay out a partial payment if you return to work on a lower rate of pay or on a part- time basis.

A “guaranteed” premium can be obtained, which means that the premium cannot increase in the future, and escalating benefits can be linked to escalating premiums with no unexpected increases, no matter what happens, including change in health, or previous claims. One of the differences between income protection and many other types of insurance is that, once started it cannot be withdrawn or the policy conditions changed, and if a claim is made it does not preclude future claims. This makes it a particularly valuable form of protection. Income protection is a complex product; it is rarely the case that the lowest premium is the most appropriate, therefore whilst there are online portals who will sell you these plans without advice, it must be better to consult with a professional adviser to ensure that the product recommended is suitable for your own individual circumstances - better still an Independent Financial Adviser who has access to virtually every contract available. Remember, your local bank or building society is only likely to be able to offer products from a single or restricted list of insurers.

Help to Buy Equity Loans - Much Ado About Nothing? by Philip Bell, Senior Valuer, Newton Fallowell

F

riends, Romans, Countrymen, lend me your ears … because this month is a great month to sell your home with Bourne’s leading estate agent. It is also another busy month for events, my intro being a clue! Alongside Easter, we have Shakespeare’s Day to celebrate. We also have St. George’s Day to enjoy this month, so there are plenty of opportunities to get together with friends and eat and drink a bit too much. April is a time when spring has definitely sprung, although my main talking point this month is fairly important for many people who have bought “new build” properties in the last five or more years, as the first wave Help to Buy Equity Loans are going to start charging you interest on your 20% loan.

This will be an additional 1.75% this year and, according to the Financial Times, could leave many homeowners on this scheme owing the government an extra £652 a year on top of their current mortgage! Now that is a lot of money but we, here at Newton Fallowell, are prepared and in a position to help. If you are one of those affected by this, we are partnered with the Mortgage Advice Bureau who can look at helping you with fantastic advice to help mitigate this problem. Call us today and we’ll be happy to help you sell, buy, rent or remortgage.

Your local property experts!

So, the milder spring weather is finally making an appearance, the nights are pulling out, and your outdoor space could do with a little TLC. Maybe laying some turf, cutting back the hedges or repairing weather-damaged fences? Perhaps a complete overhaul or shiny new, blockpaved driveway or patio? Whatever the job – big or small – don’t be tempted to give the work to someone who cold calls you at your home, claiming to be ‘carrying out similar work in the area’. Remember: • Don’t be talked into something on the spur of the moment. • Don’t take their word for it when they tell you urgent work or repairs need doing. • Do ask them to qualify who they are and to leave you a contact number. • Never hand over any cash as a deposit for work which they say they will return to carry out. • Feel free to ask to see their credentials and /or examples of their work. • Always ask them politely to leave if you feel uncomfortable with their approach. However, there are a few simple rules which could give away tell-tale signs of a rogue trader. • Do they have a land line number? • Do they have professional work wear? • Do they have a sign-written vehicle? • Are they a limited company? • Do they have a UK address? • Do they accept credit cards? • Are they offering reduced price for cash or having one- time ‘special offers’? • Are they trying to pushing you into a quick decision? The door-knocking scams of cowboy landscapers and other outdoor trades are becoming more and more common. Normally the process starts when a workman knocks on the door and points out a problem with your existing driveway. He will then tell you that he’s in the neighbourhood working on other customers’ driveways and has some left-over materials that means he could do your driveway for you at a reduced price. Once they have you agreed to a deal, the next step is to ask for cash up front to ‘ensure you’ll pay’. Never pay anyone cash at the door, especially when they haven’t even conducted any work on your premises. Most driveway scammers of this type won’t even have conducted a full inspection of your property and therefore probably have no genuine idea as to the exact costs involved or the length of time it’ll take. The only way to protect yourself from driveway and patio scams is to always ensure you use a reputable tradesman, like the members of Safe Local Trades. No reputable tradesperson will come knocking on your door ‘touting’ for business. If you would like to find a reputable and recommended tradesperson in your area, visit www.safelocaltrades.com or telephone 0800 014 1832. a p r il 2 0 1 8

CHALLENGES OF DIVORCE By Richard Wood – Double & Megson Solictors

D

ivorce procedures have not changed much in forty-five years. Attitudes have, however, evolved as society has changed. When a couple get into difficulties, they should always consider going to Relate, the relationship counsellors. It also always helps to keep talking and to work out what might be done to save the marriage.

Sadly, there are times when either divorce or a separation agreement may be required. A separation agreement can regulate financial matters and children issues, but it does not end the marriage. In divorce, one party has to petition for divorce. There is a court fee, presently of £550. A reason for the divorce has to be stated, whether adultery, unreasonable behaviour, a two year separation by agreement, desertion, or a five year separation, (where the two year separation was not an option). The procedure takes between four and twelve months, depending on the facts. There is a separate procedure for finance and for children matters.

With financial settlements, a voluntary disclosure of documents (providing each party’s income sources, assets, liabilities and pension provision), is exchanged. It is often helpful to understand each party’s average monthly outgoings and mortgage borrowing capacity. Once the exchange of documents is completed, the parties can try to negotiate a settlement. If that is unsuccessful, they can go to court to ask the district judge to help them find a solution to their financial needs. Before that happens, the applying party must obtain a certificate from a Family Law Mediation Service to show that they have considered the alternative to court. Family lawyers are passionate about what they want to do to help. One campaign at this time is to try to bring about a “no fault” divorce, which would make quite a difference in managing some of the difficulties which all parties face.

How to Spot Spam and Malicious e-Mails

I

by Taff Lovesey, Lites PC

To all intents and purposes, this looks like a regular billing e-mail from BT, albeit with an inflated figure (£336.76), designed to ‘alarm’ you into clicking on the billing link.

covered this subject just over a year ago, but it is worth reiterating given the fact that the scammers have upped their game, and the quality and appearance of these malicious emails has leapt up recently.

But let’s pause and have a closer look. If you put the cursor on the text See your bill here, you should see a web address shown on screen. (How this is shown will vary by the type of method you use to view your e-mail)… This link doesn’t take you to BT but to an unknown server in Slovakia (indicated by the .sk in the zbalsikufor.sk part of the address). Therefore, by clicking on this link, you will be connecting your device direct to that server where the criminals will take advantage of this to carry out any malicious action they intend. What makes this one even more convincing is that the other links in the e-mail will take you to BT pages. All four of the general links are to publicly accessible BT information pages, lending further credence to this being a genuine e-mail.

I don’t normally single out e-mail scams, but I will use this recent malicious e-mail to show how the quality of the scams has improved.

So, what happens if I click on that rogue link? Various things can occur if you do click on that Slovakian link, the most common being the accessing of your system for the benefit of identity fraud, although often it will be to load code onto your system to further exploit security issues or spread viruses and malware. This is why it is important to invest in a professional security suite, like Norton, where any such attempt may be blocked by the security software, even if you do accidentally connect to the criminals’ server. Be careful out there folks!

In the Spotlight

Bourne Baptist Church

B

ourne Baptist Church has been an integral part of the town since the eighteenth century, seeking to be relevant to our community as seen in our strap line, “God within reaching out”. Our two ministers, David Hughes and Nick Humphreys, seek to lead the church through encouraging and equipping our congregation and those who visit us at any time. Our children and young people are ably led by our full-time youth/children’s worker, Leigh Smith.

This year, we are encouraging each other to read the bible more, as we believe it is the living word of God for our daily living, and our bible verse for the year is Psalm 119:105, as displayed on a banner inside the church. Our lively services which begin at 10.30am each Sunday, ending around 12noon, are led by the worship team, using guitars, drums, keyboard and vocalists. During this time, there are activities for children and young people. The morning ends with time to catch up over a cup of tea/coffee in the rear hall. We are a diverse group of people, from babies to people in their eighties. Our regular activities include: Mondays :

6.30pm - 7.45pm - Young people’s group, aged between 11-14.

Tuesdays :

9.30am – 11.30am - Toddle In for babies and toddlers with adult carers.

              

5.30pm – 6.30pm - After-school group for primary aged children from Years 1- 6

          

7.30pm – 9.00pm - Youth group, aged between 15-18.

We have a number of Life Groups, held in people’s homes during the week The second Thursday of each month, from 10am- 12noon, we hold “Chill And Chat”, which is a time to talk, over refreshments. The second Saturday of each month, we run “Who let the dad’s out?” for dads and toddlers, from 10am – 12noon in the rear hall. We also have regular prayer meetings during the week. We hold one-off events from time to time, including “The Alpha Course” , children’s holiday clubs, the C.A.P money course, which offers help regarding budgeting. We seek to be a church which is part of the community. We also work with the Churches Together Group in our town. Further details of all these and other information can be found on our website www.bournebaptistchurch.org or on twitter @ bournebaptist. We would love to welcome you to our church and you can find us next to the post office on West Street.

In the Hot Seat

IN THE HOT SEAT David and his wife, Rosie, came to this area in 2003 when he took the post of Pastor at Morton, Dyke and Haconby Baptist churches. After ten great years based in Morton, he left the churches to take up a new position as part-time pastoral support for Rural Ministries, an organisation that supports rural churches. As this was only part-time, David saw this as semi-retirement, but was then invited to become Senior Pastor (part-time) at Bourne Baptist Church. Now with two part-time jobs, David and Rosie have difficulty in understanding the definition of part time! David’s last service at Bourne Baptist Church will be on Sunday April 29th, when he retires from both part-time positions, after forty-five years of ministry, (although he expects there will still be opportunities to preach and minister yet to come). David and Rosie intend to stay in Bourne, as they enjoy the town and this part of the country with its rural surroundings, and have made so many friends here over the years.

Where were you born, and what is your favourite memory of your childhood? Although I was born in Kent, I was adopted and moved to Brighton at the age of five, where I grew up. One Bank Holiday, my parents who didn’t drive took me on a coach tour. While we were waiting for the coach to leave, I was amazed to see the Mods and Rockers chasing each other along the beach.

Rev. David Hughes, Senior Pastor of Bourne Baptist Church

Who has had the greatest influence on your life and why? My parents, as they chose me and cared for me as if I was their own. I once asked them why they chose me, assuming that it was my good looks or friendly character! Apparently, the reason was that while all the children in the home were playing together, there was this pathetic child in the corner, looking rather miserable and they thought that if they a p ri l 2 0 1 8

didn’t take me, who would? The sympathy vote usually works! The real influence in my life though is God, who, just like my parents, accepts me as I am but loves me too much to leave me that way, and guides me daily. Which two characters, alive or not, would you most enjoy sharing a meal with and why? It would have been a real privilege to have met Billy Graham, (the famous American evangelist who died in February this year). I can remember when Neil Armstrong became the first person to walk on the moon in 1969. Together, I’m sure the three of us would have so much to talk about.

What advice would you give to a “sixteen-year-old you”? Come along to Bourne Baptist Church!

Thinking of Getting a Pet? Here’s Some Food for Thought

A

s spring and summer take hold, and as holidays are looming, many of us think about getting a new pet to join our households. Having a pet can be extremely rewarding and is known to have many health and social benefits. But, before rushing out to acquire your chosen animal, have you considered if you are the right owner for that pet? There are as many reasons for getting a pet as there are different homes for them, so it is important to make sure you are able to provide the home your pet deserves. Firstly, consider how much time you are able to dedicate to their care, as well as how regularly and for how long you are able to spare your time. Some animals, such as stick insects and spiders, only require short, infrequent periods of interaction, whilst others such as dogs would rather be with you for long periods of the day. It is lovely to get a new puppy during the holidays when you can settle them into the home, and it is much easier to toilet train when you are around most of the time. Going back to school and work can be very disruptive and many pups develop separation anxiety and possibly even destructive behaviours at this time. So, if you are out of your home for more than four hours a day, a different pet would be more suitable for your family.

Are you able to provide enough space and appropriate furniture for them, whether this is a cage or sharing your whole house? Many exotic pets have very precise housing requirements and their caging can be very expensive. Discussing their needs with those more expert at looking after these animals will be very informative. Look for your local herpetological or bird society for help. Not only must your pet’s environment provide it with food, water, warmth and bedding, it must also enable it to perform its normal behaviours or else its welfare and health will suffer. You will need to research their needs and check if you are able to provide for them. A small hutch housing a single rabbit does not lead to a happy, healthy life for that bunny! One significant consideration must also be the financial commitment you are undertaking when choosing a pet.

History

Discovering . . . Sunday School treats

Rex Needle

S

unday Schools were a vital part of community life in Bourne during the 19th and early 20th centuries, the inspiration of Robert Raikes (1735-1811), publisher and philanthropist, who was instrumental in founding one of the first at Gloucester in 1780 where the poorest children were taught the scriptures as well as reading and writing. The idea flourished with schools spreading with such astonishing rapidity that in 1785 the Sunday School Society was formed to co-ordinate and develop the work. A century later, they had become well established in Bourne with the Baptists in West Street being the first non-conformists to provide a Sunday School, classes beginning in 1803, and by 1924, some 5,000 children had attended. The Methodist Sunday School had 150 scholars and 21 teachers enrolled in 1888 with both morning and afternoon sessions while 11 neighbouring villages also had Methodist Sunday Schools. The appearance of Congregationalism in the town and the subsequent building of the Congregational Church [now the United Reformed Church] in Eastgate in 1846 brought an even greater impetus. A Sunday school was started in 1849 and for a long time its meetings were held in private houses yet by 1874 there were 235 children on the roll with 18 voluntary teachers and in 1900, a Sunday School building was opened adjoining

the chapel and designed much on the plan of the new Baptist Sunday School which had opened in 1891, with a central hall flanked by numerous classrooms and over 150 names on the register. The annual treat was always awaited with great anticipation, held as an enticement and a reward for children attending religious instruction on Sundays which by then was considered to be an integral part of their education. When the big day dawned, parents and children assembled at the church all dressed in their Sunday best, and then paraded through the town with banners flying, often accompanied by the town band and parents following on, including mothers with babies in their prams, to the Abbey Lawn or the Park Field in the Austerby. Here, the real business of the day got underway with sports and games, a fun fair and fancy dress competition, a parade of coloured floats and of course a sit down tea in a specially erected marquee followed by dancing for the parents and organisers in the evening once the children had been sent home to bed. It was a happy family occasion, highly anticipated every year, and an event which was talked about for weeks afterwards.

“Sorry mate I didn’t see you” (“S.M.I.D.S.Y.”) - Saccadic Masking and How to Avoid it.

P

atrick Hunt is Managing Director of Go Go Go Intensive and a member of The Institute of Advanced Motorists (IAM). Go Go Go Intensive is the only Intensive Driving School in the UK to be affiliated to the IAM, the UK’s leading road safety charity.

As we explored in February’s issue, saccadic masking affects us all. It is to do with the way that our eyes and brain see things as we turn our heads. When you move your head from side to side, often to look left and right at a junction, our eyes send images to our brain in snapshots. You can think of it like a camera, recording video footage in frames. Our brains then link all of these frames (called fixations) together to create one continuous image. However, this is an illusion because between the images there are blind spots (called saccades). How does Saccadic Masking affect my Driving? When you approach a hazard, a junction, or you are looking to turn left or right, your eyes do not capture one continuous image. The saccades created between fixations are a danger. Due to this phenomenon, we are effectively “blind” for up to an hour a day. Another road user could fall within these blind spots and not be seen. The faster you move your head, the shorter the fixations and the longer the saccades, therefore increasing the risk of not seeing another road user, causing “SMIDSY”. How can I prevent Saccadic Masking? Saccadic masking can be reduced if you avoid doing one continuous head movement from left to right. Instead, pause for a fraction of a second at three points. These points should be once to the left, once directly ahead, and once to the right, to check your long, middle and short distance. If you get into the habit of doing this, your eyes will adjust faster and you can complete the procedure quicker. This then stops the eyes from sending incomplete images to the brain. It is recommended that this is completed at least twice each

time you are looking to turn. If every driver carried this out, it could reduce the risk of road accidents by one quarter. It is something that we teach learner drivers at our intensive driving school and they have no problem whatsoever learning this technique. If learner drivers can learn this technique without any difficulty then it should be a breeze for experienced motorists, resulting in better and safer driving.

What are Scams?

by Sergeant 600 Rachel Blackwell

S

cams come in many forms. It is essentially when uninvited contact is received by e-mail, letter, phone or in person, making false promises to con victims out of money. Fake lotteries, deceptive prize draws or sweepstakes, computer scams, call blocker and romance scams are some of the more popular ones seen in the Bourne area recently. It has been encouraging to see Marilyn Baldwin, (who runs the Think Jessica Campaign, which is named after her mum who was a victim of scams www.thinkjessica. com), succeed in her campaign to get Royal Mail to take a more responsible attitude towards scam mail, and start intercepting it before it reaches its destination address. Call blocker scams are becoming much more common. Once your details are known by one scammer, they can be shared and sold to other criminals who then contact you,

Scam Victims home full of unwanted products offering help to stop nuisance calls. You are persuaded to part with large amounts of money to get the calls blocked, perhaps by using a debit card. These details are stored by the scammer, who will make recharges on the account without you realising, until it’s too late. Yes, you do get sent something that looks like a call blocker, but it’s more likely than not to be just a useless empty box with a flashing LCD display! The larger phone companies seem to be taking notice now, and BT have introduced

Mail Scam victims house

“BT Call Protect”, whilst Talk Talk have “Call Safe”, both provided free of charge. So what can be done to help prevent scams occurring? National Trading Standards launched “Friends Against Scams” in 2016, and are hoping to recruit one million friends to help raise awareness of the problem. Bourne Volunteer Police Cadets and St John Ambulance cadets in Bourne have already become friends against scams, and an awareness session, open to the general public, is taking place on Monday April 16th, at 6.30pm at the Elsea Park Community Centre, Sandown Drive, Bourne. Please visit www.friendsagainstscams.co.uk to book a place or alternatively drop into the Police Station on West Street to register your interest. If you run an organization and believe your members would benefit from an awareness session, please contact us bourne.npt@lincs.police.uk But please remember, if you become a victim of a scam, REPORT IT. That can assist us to protect others against similar scams. Please don’t be embarrassed, just report it on 101.

Featuring the official UK tour puppets, this laugh-outloud musical tells the timeless story of a recent college graduate named Princeton, who moves into a shabby New York apartment all the way out on Avenue Q. He soon discovers that, although the residents seem nice, it’s clear that this is not your ordinary neighbourhood. Together, Princeton and his new-found friends struggle to find jobs, dates and their ever-elusive purpose in life.
