Introduction

Welcome to Your December Issue. What did Adam say to his wife on the day before Christmas? “It’s Christmas, Eve!” How come I’ve reached the age I am and have never heard this one before? Anyway, another Christmas fast approaching and our team of contributors continue to ensure that your favourite magazine is full of interesting features, advice and information to make your lead-up to the big day as enjoyable as possible. Thanks to them all and, on behalf of us all on the magazine, let me wish you the very best for a merry and peaceful Christmas, with a healthy and successful 2019 to follow. Don’t forget … Bourne’s Christmas Fayre on December 1st and the big lights “switch-on”, and why not have a go at our Novelty Hunt competition? Just think how £50 would surely help make it a “Happy New Year”!

“What’s December’s issue looking like?” I hear you ask. As usual, wide-ranging and varied, with some serious events to read about this month, none more so than the centenary of the ending of The First World War and the ways in which Bourne came out in force to remember, and pay their respects. Our usual advice providers, (covering aspects of health, the law, finance, holidays and protection against rogue traders), continue to inform wisely, whilst we report on how the Hereward Medical Practice has now become a “Super Practice”! With the small matter of Christmas only a few weeks away, the quiz takes on a festive look, whilst old chestnuts (sorry!) come out for their annual airing: What do you get if you eat Christmas decorations? Tinselitis. What do you call a lobster who won’t share any of his presents? Shellfish. Marks & Spencer say it wouldn’t be Christmas without M&S. They’re right – it’d be “Chrita”. I wish you all a very happy and peaceful Christmas, with good health and success on the way in 2019. Enjoy the read!

Bourne Remembrance Weekend “A record crowd joined veterans and dignitaries to mark the centenary of the end of the First World War at the war memorial in the Wellhead Gardens on Sunday morning. The rain that had fallen earlier turned to glorious sunshine as the parade, led by the Army Cadets, marched into the town centre. Various organisations, including local schools, clubs and societies, laid wreaths at the town’s war memorial in memory of the 137 Bourne people who lost their lives in the First World War and subsequent conflicts. Town Mayor, Councillor David Mapp, said: “The parade and service grows larger with each year that passes, and it is wonderful that so many people can spare the time to remember those who gave their lives. This year was very special, however, in

that it marked one hundred years since the end of the First World War and I was proud to see so many organisations taking part.” Much effort had been put in over the previous few months for this very special occasion which will never be repeated in our lifetimes. From the magnificent wall hangings that festooned both the Town Hall and the Darby and Joan Hall to the beautiful poppies that adorned the town’s planters, the town looked and felt magnificent. The support of the Town Council, the Len Pick Trust and the newly-formed Town Hall Trust had spearheaded a community effort that was long overdue, and the townsfolk repaid their efforts by turning out in force. The wall hangings project, masterminded by local artist Sue Rowlands, was initiated to enable Bourne to have a lasting reminder of the anniversary, and also to assist local schools in the education of our youngsters with regard to ‘The Great War’, (as the

1914-1918 conflict came to be known). Offering a blaze of colour on an occasion that can be quite sombre, the general public took the project to their hearts and viewed the exhibition, stunned by its brilliance. The Town Hall, lit by night in glorious poppy-red, was astounding and amazed passersby in the dark of the night. The thanks of the whole town should go to all of those organisations involved, for having contributed to such a fantastic weekend that will be talked about for years to come, but our biggest thank you should be made to John Wand and his fantastic team at Roadphone NRB, who worked tirelessly to make everything happen behind the scenes … at no cost to the town! We should all be proud to live in our glorious town”. (Thanks for these words go to Bourne’s Clerk to the Town Council, Ian Sismey).

A Weekend to Remember! What a weekend! The people of Bourne came out in their hundreds to commemorate the centenary of the end of World War 1, and remember those who had given their lives; there was a real sense of community spirit. As part of this commemorative weekend, Bourne Town Hall was opened, to display four out of five of the most stunning tapestry pieces, along with hundreds of poppies. The project, sponsored by Bourne Town Council and the Len Pick Trust, represented one of the largest community projects ever undertaken in the area. The tapestry, conceived and co-ordinated by Sue Rowland, involved local groups, schools, and individuals who created fragments of the final work in workshops and at home. It depicted scenes from the war, names of the fallen soldiers of Bourne, regiment badges, messages and names of loved ones, some in sweetheart pincushion pieces. There were also displays from The Willoughby

and Bourne Abbey C. of E. Schools, and Bourne Westfield choir sang a variety of First world War songs on the Sunday morning. Hundreds of visitors poured through the doors of the Town Hall, and drinks and cakes were served by Bourne Worth It WI, who are supporting the Town Hall Restoration Project. On Saturday, there was an evening of entertainment with a World War 1 theme, which included poetry, drama, songs, and marching music from a section of the Peterborough Pipe Band. The outside of the Town Hall looked absolutely amazing with a myriad of poppies cascading down its entrance, whilst at night time, when red lights illuminated the poppies and white poppies circled the banner, it looked even more stunning. A big thank you to all of the residents of Bourne and district who supported the weekend in any way. (Words from Hilary Bloomer)


Clients now contact him for that unique piece of jewellery – “Same person … different guise,” Matt explains. “Bourne and district clients are still more than welcome to get in touch,” he insists. Wedding rings continue to be one of Matt’s best-sellers and he is particularly enthusiastic about his new machinery which enables him to offer individualised, Damascus steel rings for discerning gentlemen. As Matt no longer offers the repairing service from his Crown Jeweller’s days, he can focus his efforts and talents entirely on high-quality, bespoke pieces of jewellery instead.

Fine Jewellery, Sparkling Future! When Matt Powell’s family’s jewellery business closed in Bourne recently, it perhaps gave the impression that Matt’s role in the Crown Jewellers success story had come to an end too. “Nothing,” Matt assures me, “is further from the truth!” Having worked for many years in the family business and building a formidable reputation on a national stage with his magnificent, award-winning bespoke pieces, Matt now operates from his Peterborough workshop as a private jeweller.

As if his C.V. wasn’t already impressive enough, Matt modestly lets slip that he has recently been accepted as a “Freeman of the Gold and Silver Wyre Drawers Guild” in London. The future shines as brightly for Matt as do his bespoke pieces of jewellery!

A Very Merry, Stress-free Christmas by Claire Saunders, Renu - Health, Beauty & Fitness

T

he seasonal joy of Christmas can come with a stocking full of stress. For many, it can be a source of anxiety, disappointment and loneliness. Here are my top tips on how to stay calm and happy and avoid festive fallout. Unplug – “Portion control” should not just be restricted to your diet. Use the time you have to relax and enjoy the beauty of this time of year. Whether you are getting together with family and friends or chilling on the sofa, completely savour the moments, instead of scrolling through social media or looking for your selfie stick. Say “No!” - Learning to say no can be a great way to reduce your stress levels. With pressure coming from all angles, it is important to remember that you don’t have to say yes to everything. Remind yourself that it is perfectly okay to turn down an invitation and have a night in instead. Try to reclaim some time for yourself to do the things you enjoy. Read a book, have a bath and spend time with different people and focus on the positives. Accept what you can’t change There are some things you simply cannot change. Other people’s behaviour, for example, is hard to control and so, where you can, when irritations arise try to let them go. If socialising with certain people is going to affect your

mental health, then try to keep it to a minimum! Those gifts! - Pressure to show everyone how much you love them by the value of, or time spent shopping for, the gifts you give is not only futile, but leads to increased pressure and stress. Consider purchasing gift vouchers or invites to spend time with your loved ones in the New Year instead. This gives everyone something to look forward to and means you can stay within your budget.

Take charge - One of the main causes of stress is the feeling that you cannot control a particular situation. Try to plan your commitments and time so you have plenty of advance notice and can delegate responsibilities if you need to. Organise your diary now so you have time to purchase and deliver gifts without rushing and adding extra stress to your schedule. Make sure you diarise events for your

own personal wellbeing, whether it be going to the gym, attending a class, having your hair or nails done or meeting a friend. These are usually the first things to go when you are under pressure. Don’t be afraid to ask for help Try sharing responsibility between family members rather than taking on everything yourself. If everyone has a job they are responsible for, no one family member will carry the whole burden. Children can help making name places or laying the table, everyone can peel some vegetables, or help serving drinks. This gets everyone involved and makes it FUN! Conversely, not everyone has an abundance of friends and family around them over Christmas. It is perfectly reasonable to accept that this may be a difficult time of year. If you don’t enjoy all the traditions of Christmas, make a plan to do something that day that you do really enjoy. If you would like to be socialising over Christmas, then don’t be afraid to accept invitations if you are asked. Have a look at local events that are going on, such as the Salvation Army or soup kitchens, where you can either attend yourself or volunteer to help. I would like to wish you all a very merry, stress-free Christmas!

Gain control of your addiction and leave it behind, where it belongs Until recently, very little was known about how the brain can turn off the desire for addictions and how the subconscious mind can stop addictive urges. It is time to look at the science of how the brain works, how the subconscious mind controls our life, and how to change it for good.

and clinically accepted approaches, the mind and behaviour modification techniques work to retrain and recondition at the core, unconscious level. The brain is actually a supple, malleable organ, as ready to unlearn as it is to learn, capable of transforming, resetting and repairing its internal communications.

Turn off your desires We already know that the brain is constantly changing. The neuroplasticity of the brain allows focused treatment to create new neural connections. Without treatment, the brain uses neural pathways to trigger emotions, needs, pleasure and cravings, which feed the addiction. Treatment changes those responses by rewiring of the neural pathways and the subconscious mind, thereby bringing an entirely different reaction.

Deal with stress in a different way Some people use an addiction to forget a problem, to mask pain, dampen down emotions or to reduce stress and anxiety. They may have noticed that, as soon as they have decided to make changes, the urge to continue the addiction just seems to get worse. This is the subconscious mind controlling your habit and the effect of the neuro-chemical, dopamine, on the brain. Solution focused hypnotherapy reduces stress and anxiety, and looks at the emotions or triggers that fuel the addiction, allowing you greater control over the addiction.

Your addiction may be related to sugar, caffeine, food or weight loss. You could be addicted to smoking, gambling, alcohol, compulsive shopping, or even the overuse of gadgets. No matter what your addiction is, when it begins to disrupt and control your life … that is the time to kick the habit. When exposed to any of the old triggers, the brain doesn’t automatically respond in the old way because it now responds in a stronger and healthier manner. The very thing that used to cause cravings and relapse now actually reinforces the commitment to overcome the addictive behaviour. Based on what we now know about the brain, the neuroplasticity and the biology of belief, you can begin to approach addiction and recovery from a new perspective. Using newly discovered

Today, hypnotherapy for addiction is a growing trend. With hypnosis, we aim to get to the root of the problem through hypnotic trance. In this state, your mind is more receptive to suggestions and ideas in tune with your ultimate goals, changing ingrained behavioural patterns and rebuilding your emotional health. Don’t wait. Act now If you’re struggling with an addiction, contact Christine who will be pleased to help.

– Holistic Massage and Beauty Treatments

Liza at Indulge Holistic Massage and Beauty Treatments

How often have you thought, “I could have done that better myself”, when having had a treatment or a meal that was distinctly average? How many people then actually do anything about it? Well, Morton mother of three, Liza Gunn, has … and, for the past six months, she has been offering holistic massage, either from her home or by visiting her clients, having already embarked on the necessary training courses. Feedback has been overwhelmingly positive, prompting her to take the ambitious next step, which saw her establish “Liza at Indulge”, a business offering holistic massage and beauty treatments in a private room in Wake House on North Street in Bourne. Holistic massage, Liza is keen to point out, is much more than just a beauty treatment. The enormous health benefits which massage can bring are well documented, and are key to Liza’s whole approach. She offers an ‘Indian Head Massage’, which is a technique of manipulating soft tissues in the upper back, shoulders, upper arms, neck, face and scalp. A 30-minute massage costs £20, with a further £5 added for a 45-minute treatment. Liza’s ‘Traditional Thai Foot Massage’ involves thumbs, hands and a wooden acupressure tool, in a massage applied to the lower legs and feet, using rubbing, kneading, stretching and vibration techniques. The charge for this 45-minute treatment is £35. Besides these two treatments, Liza also offers her ‘Classic Beauty Facial’ and ‘Individual Eyelash Extensions’, both of which can be combined with the massage options, to create particularly attractive ‘Treatment Packages’, extremely kind on both your skin and on your purse!

Hereward Group Practice Merges with Lakeside Healthcare to Create NHS ‘Super-Practice’ From November 1st 2018, the partners of Hereward Group Practice and Lakeside Healthcare Group will be working together as a single ‘GP SuperPractice’, to supply NHS services to the patients of Bourne. They stress that they are to remain a traditional GP partnership, upholding all the values of traditional family doctor services, only bigger. The Lakeside Healthcare Group already operates surgeries in Corby, Kettering, Brigstock, Rushden and Oundle in Northamptonshire; Yaxley, Eaton Socon and Cedar House in Cambridgeshire; and Stamford in South Lincolnshire. The new ‘superpractice’ will serve the healthcare needs of more than 165,000 patients across four counties: Northamptonshire, Rutland, Lincolnshire and Cambridgeshire. Lakeside Healthcare is building a new model of primary care that is better able to thrive in the difficult times ahead, and one which bucks the trend affecting many GP practices that are facing uncertain futures and possible closures. Across Lincolnshire, many practices are struggling and a number have closed or are closing. Closure is not a reflection of those practices or their staff, but more a result of the harsh economic climate for primary care services, coupled with ever-rising demand for GP access. The Lakeside Healthcare Group was previously appointed as one of only fourteen ‘Multispecialty Community Provider Vanguards’ across the 20

D I S C O V E R I N G

Bourne

country by NHS England and the government to develop ‘New Models of Care’. It is rolling out a ‘Primary Care Home’ model that brings together staff in community-based roles from acute hospitals, mental health providers as well as the voluntary sector. This is proven to be a better service for patients, especially for older patients with long-term conditions. Lakeside Healthcare Group stresses that no existing clinics or premises will be closed and that with more finance available, there are plans for additional investment in premises, staff and technology, all of which will benefit patients. In the words of the Hereward Group Practice, “We believe we can develop a different, better solution by becoming bigger, by expanding GP primary care services and being able to see and treat more patients in a community setting. This is very exciting news for all patients and staff as it ensures sustainability and continuity of NHS service provision in our region, as well as terrific opportunities for future growth. The Lakeside Healthcare Group operates both Sheepmarket and St Mary’s Medical Centres in Stamford, and it is anticipated that there will be much closer working between doctors and nurses in Bourne and Stamford as a result of this merger. Each of the individual practices in the Lakeside de ce m be r 2 0 1 8


Healthcare Group already delivers high quality healthcare services to their patients. This merger will give us the opportunity to deliver truly excellent healthcare services across a wider geographical area. We will do this by taking the very best things that we do individually, and gradually introduce those ideas to the expanded organisation. In this way, we shall all benefit: our patients from a high quality, consistent service that is safe and effective; our staff from being part of a bigger organisation that shall be more financially sustainable and able to offer greater training and employment opportunities; our commissioners (those who buy our services on behalf of patients), from the wider range of services that can be provided more costeffectively out of hospital. Being bigger will allow us to: • Offer a greater range of services, including more minor surgical services and outpatient services, and offer a different service to the very many patients we have with multiple, long-term conditions; • Partner our local hospitals as equals and

d e c em b er 2018

develop care packages that relieve much of the growing pressure on hospitals; • Allow us to win more contracts to provide different services, thereby increasing our collective revenues which, in turn, will allow us to invest more in people, premises and equipment; • Look at expanding our teaching and training services and our research and development services with local universities and other bodies; • Take direct control of future budgets as an ‘Accountable Care Organisation.’ “We would like to reassure any patients who are concerned about what this proposed merger means for them, please note that: Our surgery will remain largely as it is, and your treatment will be the same as previously.” Senior Partner, Dr Ian Wheatley, concludes, “As a successful practice we wanted to ensure the continuity of services for our patients. By merging with Lakeside, we are far more certain of a bright future. We see this merger as an opportunity to expand the range of services we can offer the people of Bourne. This will ensure we have a solid base of general practice in the area for years to come. By working more closely with other GPs, we can introduce new services that will be much better for our patients. We see this as a very positive step forward.”

Ears - Advice from ‘The Ear Nurse’

by (Jane Russell R.G.N; B.Sc.(Hons.); Independent Nurse Prescriber)

A

s a trained nurse, I have specialised in caring for ears for the past twenty years. I am passionate about these fascinating organs and get immense satisfaction out of helping my patients leave the clinic feeling better than when they came in. I enjoy educating people and sharing my knowledge with them.

My EAR CLINIC has now been running for two years in Bourne, at The Wellhead Clinic on Abbey Road. I also offer HOME VISITS in the local area for house-bound patients. I have an Advanced Diploma in ear care, and over the years, I have cared for thousands of ears. I am trained in three procedures to remove wax from the ear : irrigation,(formerly known as “syringing”), instrumentation and microsuction, but my first choice would always be irrigation, providing there are no contraindications for a person. Advantages of Irrigation over the Other Procedures: Irrigation removes 100% of the wax, leaving behind no dry wax in the ear canal, so it lasts a lot longer. It is never painful, as the wax is soft and washed away, and not pulled away, from the canal. It is much quicker. There is no instrument being poked into the canal, so posing less risk of trauma to the ear drum. It is cheaper, as wax removal has now gone ‘privatised’.

My PRICES are as follows:

Initial consultation............£10

One ear irrigated ..............£30

The Galletly Practice - Keeping You in Touch

Extended GP Access As part of our commitment to provide a greater range of services, we have already commenced our Primary Care Extended Access service on October 1st 2018. This service means that our practice is now open until 8pm, Monday to Friday, and is open not just to our own patients but also to those registered elsewhere locally. It is especially aimed at those struggling to get an appointment to see a healthcare professional, irrespective of where they are registered. The service has been commissioned by NHS South Lincolnshire Clinical Commissioning Group, and is being provided by our practice in conjunction with Allied Health South Lincolnshire, (our GP federation).

From April 1st, 2019, we anticipate that our service will expand to also include Saturdays and Sundays, thus giving seven-days-a-week access. We hope this is seen as another positive commitment to our local community.

Appointments here at the Galletly Practice are available, Monday through to Friday from 6.30pm to 8 pm. Appointments are pre-bookable in the usual way.  If you are not registered with our practice but live within the community, we are still happy to see you.  Ask your GP Practice reception for an appointment within our service.  You will be asked to consent to our viewing your medical record so that we can provide the best possible care, as such we can only see you if this consent is given.  Once given and on attending your appointment, our healthcare professionals will be able to view your personal GP record. Any updates following your consultation will be automatically received by your practice at the end of the consultation.

To arrange an appointment, or for more information on when and where appointments are available, please speak to your usual practice. This service also links to our same-day appointment system for all our registered patients.   Simply call us on the day you require assistance and your needs will be addressed that day by our GPs, you will never be advised that we have no remaining appointments or suggest you should call back another day.  If you are not registered with us, and this system would better suit your needs rather than waiting long periods to see your GP, our lists are open and we would be happy to register you as one of our patients.

Currently, on Saturdays, Sundays and Bank Holidays, appointments are available from 9am to 12 noon within our local area, via The Munro Practice in Spalding.

Bourne

The Galletly Practice is providing this service in conjunction with other practices across the area who are aware of our service and should offer you appointments if appropriate and available. We are working closely together so that you can take advantage of high-quality care within your immediate locality, negating the need to travel outside of Bourne or the immediate area.

Teen Drop-in Clinic Another aspect to our desire to provide a good community service is our new Teen Drop-in Clinic. We have now started this confidential service for our young adults which is aimed at helping them to resolve any specific problems associated with this age group.  There is no need for an appointment; just drop in within the times indicated and we will be happy to assist. Other News We are now actively seeking additional members of our team and we anticipate further news shortly which will see further increases in our GP, nursing and administrative teams.  These new team members will allow further expansion of our services which are being developed to support and align with our local hospitals at Stamford and Peterborough, with whom we continue to have strong links – links which we expect to increase as our range of services expands. de ce m be r 2 0 1 8

Please remember that 2 clear working days are required from the point of order to collection of medications/ repeat prescriptions.

Local Artist in Finals Of National “Win a Star” Art Competition

‘We think creativity is vital for helping children develop,” said

Abbie Livermore from Headstart. “Our aim is to develop great life skills for all of our children for use later in life. We really enjoyed making our art, which was made into free greetings cards as a fundraising project, but had no idea we would get into the finals. The prizes are stars, named

Thanks From the Bourne Foodbank

Bourne Footlights: “Caught in the Net” by Ray Cooney

To the people of Bourne and surrounding communities. On behalf of Bourne Foodbank I would like to thank you all for your amazing generosity at this ‘Harvest Festival’ time of year. Your gifts have now been weighed in, sorted and stored ready to help those people in our community who find themselves needing help and support from the Food bank. We always ensure that our clients receive a friendly welcome and tell them that the food they receive has all been donated by local people. Without exception, they are always extremely grateful.

(words from Hilary Bloomer)

A child from Headstart Nursery and Pre-School has secured a place in the finals of the www. minimecardco.com national Christmas 2018 Art Competition, to win their own star!

After our last visit to see Bourne Players we were expecting to be suitably entertained and we were not disappointed. We went on the first night, always a difficult one for the cast, and after a start that was a little shaky, the actors settled into their roles and began to gain confidence as the audience responded to the humorous situation that was revealed.

after the overall winners, and information about the sky at night which will be really interesting for our children, so we are keeping our fingers crossed.” The artworks will be judged by a professional artist to decide the overall winners from across the UK.

The second half was acted with far more confidence and Ian Gibbs had us all laughing at the absurd situations he was forced to make up. Once more, a thoroughly enjoyable evening and our congratulations go to the cast, Director Maureen Berkes, and all of those behind the scenes. We look forward to their next production.

This year, from our local schools in Bourne and surrounding villages, local churches, organisations and communities, as well as individuals - we have received in excess of 933 kgs of food! A huge thank you to all who have donated. You have helped to ease some of the worries of local families in need. Thank you for your continuing support.

Ladies Night Raffle Boosts Carers Sitter Service Funds A cheque for £670 was presented to the Carers Sitter Service recently, having been raised from a raffle at ‘Ladies Night’, held by The Hundred of Elloe Masonic Lodge. Heather Allen explains, “The Carers Sitter Service provide volunteers to give a break to carers to allow them ‘time out’ to do the things that, as committed carers, they struggle to find the time to do. For me, the Service provides a sitter to take my mother, Alethea Barnsdale, to and from the Darby and Joan Club on a Monday, freeing me up to spend an afternoon with my sister. We are so grateful to the Carers Sitter Service, and that is why I chose them to be the beneficiaries of the raffle.”  Marjorie Boxall-Hunt, (Co-ordinator at the Carers Sitter Service), accepted the cheque for £670, on behalf of the Service. The Carers Sitter Service is based in Bourne. If you would like to use the Service, or would like to get more information about becoming a volunteer, you can contact Marjorie Boxall-Hunt on 01778 420257, or e-mail carersitterservice@gmail.co.uk.

Legal Corner

Growing Older and Putting Protections in Place By Richard Wood – Double & Megson Solictors

When we get a little older, it is always advisable to make a will. This is best dealt with by a solicitor with experience, and who will be regulated by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority and who will also be insured. The benefit of a will is that it creates certainty as to what we want to do with our property when we die. It can ensure that our chosen loved ones benefit. This can be very important, especially for couples who co-habit, but are unmarried. If we do not make a will, the state has provided an order of beneficiaries under what is known as “intestacy”, and this may mean persons who we would not want to, actually inheriting from the deceased. We can also consider making a ‘Lasting Power of Attorney’, to protect us during our lifetime but, when we need others to help us, to use our finances to protect our needs. A Lasting Power of Attorney is a legal document that allows someone trusted to make decisions for us if we are no longer able to make decisions or if we no longer

want to make them. This could arise from a temporary situation, such as hospitalisation, or a more permanent one, such as being told that we are suffering from a long-term health issue. We can consider making a Lasting Power of Attorney for either ‘Financial’ decisions and/or ‘Health and Care’ decisions.

If we lose capacity, or have similar problems, a more complicated procedure is called for, which requires more work to be put into place. The court fees payable are higher, and we have to wait longer to be able to have decisions made to protect us. Being in control of these matters can be vital to protect our interests in older age. It also protects our loved ones.

How Would a Hard Brexit Affect Bourne’s House Prices?

After the weather and football, the British obsession with the UK property market is without comparison to any other country in the world, whilst the number of transactions is an important bellwether of the state of the property market.

Brexit, No Brexit, Hard Brexit … in the whole scheme of things, it will be another footnote to history in a decade’s time. We have survived the ‘Oil Crisis’, 20%+ hyperinflation in the 1970s, mass unemployment in the 1980s, interest rates of 15% in 1990s, the ‘Global Financial Crash’ in 2009 ... whatever happens, happens.

Now, it’s true the Bourne property market is seeing less people sell and move, and the property values are rising at a slower rate in 2018 compared to the heady days of the first half of this decade, (2010 to 2015), but before we all start panicking, let’s ask ourselves, what exactly has happened in the last couple of years since the Brexit vote?

People still need houses and a roof over their head. If property values drop, it is only a paper drop in value ... because you lose when you actually sell. Long term, we aren’t building enough homes, and as property is “a long game”, no matter what happens - the property market will always come good.

Time to Get Ahead of the Game! by Philip Bell, Senior Valuer, Newton Fallowell

T

he festive season is here, and the Christmas decorations are out in force; chocolates litter coffee tables in abundance; and the prospects of too much food and drink are high on many folk’s personal agendas. It’s a great time of year, young or old, but it’s not just all about the presents - the people are great too. There’s a bit of time off, 2019 is on the horizon, and thoughts and plans start turning towards what comes next. For us, Boxing Day sees a huge spike in online property interest, as many of you look to where you might be next Christmas. If you’re one of them, why not be ahead of the game? January is historically a very busy time for us estate

agents and a great time to put your property on the market and get moved, with the “New year, new me mentality”. But be aware that many other homeowners have that very same idea and lots of competition could see you not get the attention you deserve. So, our advice would be to get ahead of the market, contact us today and get sold BEFORE the competition. We will be the agent to make your Christmas and New Year special, with our exceptional customer service and high-quality marketing materials putting you ahead of the pack. Everyone at Newton Fallowell would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Your local property experts!

We quite often receive reviews and feedback from our clients which allow us to reflect on this simple statement and below is a recent example of feedback which suggests we are on track: What were the circumstances that caused you to look for an adviser? I have two final-salary pensions, one which had sat for several years and one with a company that I ceased working for years ago. I am not married but live

with my partner. I was looking initially for advice on what would happen to the monies I had accrued in the event of my death, and what could be done to ‘ring fence’ those monies.

for those monies now in an investment fund; however, everything to date has gone very smoothly, and I have no reason to believe that they will not continue to do so.

How did your adviser help you? He explained thoroughly what my dependants would and, more importantly, would not receive from my pensions. Taking those facts into consideration, I made the decision to move those monies into an investment fund and, in doing so, take the tax-free lump sum that was available; this only after much consultation with my adviser as he explained the pros and cons of coming out of the final salary pensions.

What could they have done better? In all honesty I do not believe I could have received any better help and advice than that offered to me by the adviser; extremely thorough and clear.

What is your current situation? Have you seen the outcome you were hoping for? I am in the process of receiving my taxfree lump sums and it is still very early days

Stay Merry, not Miserable in the Run-Up to Christmas ‘TIS the season to be jolly – but as we prepare for the season of goodwill, not everyone shares the Christmas spirit. With many of us starting the Christmas shopping earlier, there is a fair chance that many of our shop purchases and online orders are beginning to pile up. So, with gifts galore adding to the decorations, tree, food and drink, December is a time when many of us let our guard down, amongst the excitement leading up to the big day. For opportunist thieves, visible presents under the tree, open car boots full of shopping while loads are being taken into the house, and even the possibility of an unlocked garage are rich pickings which can turn your Christmas from being ‘Merry’ into ‘Miserable’! Equally, flaws in home security while out and about visiting friends and family are a beacon to thieves – so always remember to check your alarm and never leave doors, windows or garages unlocked. Some tips for a safe and happy festive season: • Don’t leave presents in full view – either in the home or on the back seat of the car.

• Shorter days mean a longer time for thieves to be in operation – always lock your car and front door when entering your home.

• If you are expecting parcels or deliveries whilst you are away from home, try and arrange for them to be delivered to an alternative address instead of them being hidden by the bins! • If buying bikes and / or electronic equipment for Christmas – mark them with your postcode • If using outdoor festive lighting, ensure cables aren’t passed through windows, leaving enough of a gap for burglars to make use of. • Away over Christmas? – plan ahead. If you’re going away at Christmas, be sure to cancel any newspaper or milk subscriptions. Arrange for a neighbour to park on the driveway to help create the impression someone is home. Do not to leave descriptive telephone answering machine messages like “we’re away skiing for the Christmas holidays”, or post your plans on social media.

Windows 10 v1809 October 2018 Update by Taff Lovesey, Lites PC

Microsoft have fallen into a now regular pattern of releasing two major updates to Windows 10 every year. In 2018, the first rolled out in April (v1803) and by the time you read this, the second should be rolling out again after a very shaky start. The version number itself, the latest being v1809, indicates the year and month of completion of the release. So, in the case of v1809, the year is 2018 and the month September. The 1809 version was released in early October, but pulled back in by Microsoft four days later after it was found that it was deleting user data. If you manually downloaded a copy of the code in those four days, then you should delete it as it has a major bug. For most users, that bug is irrelevant, but if you have redirected any of your main user folders (Documents,

Pictures, Videos etc) to another drive or folder, then you should not install it, as it is in this instance where data is deleted. The bug that caused that issue has now been fixed and Microsoft have reissued the update to the registered testers. If all goes well, then it will once again be added to the automated Windows 10 update list. Your system will automatically download and install it as part of the regular Windows 10 update process. Although I am a fan of Windows 10, I think the policy of mandatory updates is far from ‘user friendly’, and each time a major revision is released, I am inundated with requests for assistance from those who find the upgrade has become corrupted or that their hardware is now

incompatible. Sadly, Microsoft are not very supportive for this latter issue, and if no new drivers are available for older hardware, they tell you to update your hardware or roll your Operating System back to Windows 8. Very annoying, given it was Microsoft that were pushing everyone to Windows 10 in the first instance. This is exacerbated in that Windows 10 updates are now mandatory - a good move from a user data security point of view, but unforgiving for those that find their older systems unable to run the updated versions. Going back to the forthcoming v1809 update, I would advise that everyone running Windows 10 ensure they have a current data backup and also to take a Windows restore point now, prior to the update installing.

Mayor

Words from the Mayor David Mapp

Christmas?.....Bah!....Humbug!.....It’s that time of year again. Great expense, overeating, overindulgence of an alcohol nature, hangover remedies, Christmas lights malfunction, family members you haven’t heard of the rest of the year........and we wouldn’t change a thing! During the last month Christine and I have travelled on our ventures to the far north, (of the county!) with services at Gainsborough, Mablethorpe and Sutton on Sea. We have also toured Bourne Grammar to view the school and its new additions, and sat in on a lesson on Citizenship - an enlightening experience. A really surprising event was the U3A, (the University of the Third Age), Open Day at the Corn Exchange. What a revelation! We have a very strong local support team who lead groups of older people who meet regularly to pursue their passions in a wide range of interests. Virtually everything you can think of is covered, and I would urge residents to contact Tony Burke 426617 or Paul Gosden 571952 for further information. YOUR COUNCIL MATTERS SKDC have recently announced, what is hoped, will be an annual cycling weekend for Bourne, starting in September next year, which has national cycling support. The event will include professional men’s and ladies’ races, starting and ending in the town, together with a fun cycling challenge for those of us who enjoy it as a leisure pursuit, both adults and children alike. The Town Council and Len Pick Trust engineered a fantastic Remembrance weekend for the town. Not only did every planter contain metal poppies but black silhouettes of soldiers were situated around the parish which I found very moving. The tapestry constructed by hundreds of members of the public, from young to old, was displayed in the Town Hall and now resides at Baldocks Mill. Various poignant events took place around Remembrance Sunday, including a Requiem Performance at the Town Hall. The Council’s thanks go to all involved on that weekend, particularly, Ian Sismey, Cllr Paul Fellows, John Wand and his Roadphone team. The speed indicator devices I mentioned in earlier dispatches have been deployed and, if the date has not passed by the time you read this, remember the Christmas lights switch-on is on December 1st. Finally, returning to my Christmas theme, probably the most controversial and the one creating the most debate, certainly in our household, is the spectre of the Yuletide sprout. I like them but Christine assures me that it has been clinically proven that some people have a genetic aversion to our pungent vegetable. Certainly she has! Whatever your view, I must say that when we acquired a seasonal variety, crisp pack recently which included sprout-flavoured packets, (yes, green in colour), I did think that was one crisp too far! Happy Christmas Everyone! de ce m be r 2 0 1 8

History

Discovering . . . Christmas past

Rex Needle

T

he evocation of Christmas past will forever be associated with Charles Dickens whose Victorian novels have inspired scenes of a cosy fireside with a blazing yule log, stagecoaches, snow covered rooftops and decorated trees hung with coloured baubles, and it is these images that we associate today with our celebrations of the festive season. Shop windows in Bourne during the late 19th century also had that Dickensian appearance and in 1887 they were adorned with colourful trimmings and crammed with meat, game and other appetising wares while the millinery and drapery stores displayed the latest fashions. Beasts were bought for slaughter in readiness for the Christmas trade, the meat proudly displayed by local butchers and one trader alone, George Mays, of Eastgate, killed 300 sheep, one weighing 211 lb, and nine cattle, to meet the demand yet at that time he was only one of nine butchers in Bourne when the population was under 4,000 (1881 census). The Christmas story was featured at the 12th century Abbey Church which had been beautifully presented by a small army of helpers with arrangements of evergreens, flowers, ivy and holly and Christmas Day was ushered in with peals of bells and carols in the market place from Bourne Brass Band. The public houses were busy throughout the festive

season and full most evenings. Yet this was the age of temperance with someone always ready to warn against the perils of the demon drink and Thomas Rosbottom, a celebrated Lancashire lecturer, paid a Christmas visit to address meetings at the Victoria Hall in Spalding Road [now demolished] where he was given a rousing welcome from a sympathetic audience and many signed the pledge promising to give up alcohol in the future. But despite the celebrations, poverty was prevalent in Bourne and those who could not afford such pleasures queued up at the National School in North Street [now the Conservative Party headquarters] where various charities distributed gifts to deserving cases including blankets, clothing and coal. At the workhouse in St Peter’s Road [now demolished], the Board of Guardians gave their annual treat to the inmates on Boxing Day when the monotonous and unappetising food normally served was replaced with roast beef and plum pudding with beer and tobacco to follow. What a contrast we have today when Christmas has become an indulgent spree for most and few will go short of food, drink, presents and other luxuries with families predicted to spend an average of £800 on their celebrations leaving many with a financial hangover well into the New Year.

Pets and Vets

Pets, Brexit and Beyond Over the past two years a new word has entered our language, separating our population into two distinct camps, and that word is ‘Brexit’. Breaking the ties with Europe may be the desire of some, but the resultant ‘spaghetti-ball’ of red tape is affecting us all and, even in the world of pets, uncertainty reigns. Recently, the government has informed vets of the possible effects of a “No-deal Brexit” on the movement of pets across Europe. So, if you have a pet passport, or planning to get one, the following information is important for you. The simplest possible outcome that the Department for the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, (DEFRA), can negotiate with the European Union is that there will be no

change in the current legislation surrounding pet passports. Your pet dog, cat or ferret will need to be micro-chipped before it can be given a rabies vaccine and issued with a pet passport. It will be twentyone days before you can travel across Europe. On returning to Britain, dogs will need a tapeworm treatment, twenty-four to onehundred-and-twenty hours upon entering the U.K. A second possible outcome is that the above regulations will apply but, within ten days of travel, an official veterinarian will need to issue a health certificate in addition to the pet passport. A health certificate will be required every time you wish to travel to Europe with your pet and, on arrival in the E.U, you will need to report to a Travellers’ Point of Entry.

The most complicated possible outcome will be to return almost to the pre-passport days. In this case, a rabies injection is given after microchipping, but a blood test is required thirty days later to ensure that the rabies vaccination has taken full effect. There will be a three month wait before travel is allowed, so a minimum of four months of planning is required. If the blood test comes back showing the vaccine has not had the required effect, the whole process will need to be repeated. An official veterinarian would again need to issue a health certificate for every journey abroad, when all the requirements have been met. The decision on a Brexit deal or no-deal will be in March 2019, so if you are planning to travel with your pet to Europe after this date, you need to start considering the above information right now. You may decide that the most complicated outcome is likely and will need to have a blood test for your pet in December this year, or you may decide that the first option will happen, and you need do nothing. Unfortunately, there is no definitive answer and there won’t be one until the March deal. Therefore, let’s hope for the easiest solution, but prepare yourself for the most complicated one!
