Introduction

Welcome to Your March Issue. Welcome to our March edition and a subtle reminder that it’s that time of year again when you can shower us mums with all those lovely words, cuddles and flowers! (Sunday March 31st, as if you’d need any reminding!) The new addition to our family, George the adorable cockapoo, has already showered me with Valentine’s Day goodies, so I might be in luck again. One very clever dog! Spring arrives this month of course - a time for freshening things up and putting new things in place for the longer and warmer days to come. Enjoy them, and thanks for the lovely feedback coming our way from you, the readers. Continuing, big thanks to all of our contributors and advertisers as well. Don’t forget…. clocks “spring forward” one hour on Mother’s Day. Soon be summer!!!

Claire x

Another month, another issue, bulging with information, features and advice. Read about health issues, money-related and legal matters, gardening tips, computer advice, St Lucia for the sunshine, veterinary advice, our comprehensive events and gigs guide for the month and a very special Mother’s Day quiz, focusing on that very special lady. Talking of which, there’s even an opportunity to win our competition with its Mother’s Day theme. Variety is indeed the key! Just a thought … by the time a woman eventually realizes that her mother was always right, she has a daughter of her own who thinks that she’s always wrong! And finally … I’ve just developed ‘sausage-phobia’ – I fear the wurst. She said, “Nothing rhymes with orange”. I said, “No it doesn’t!” Enjoy the read!

Trim, Tone and Dance Your Way to Stay FABS! New fitness classes designed specifically for the over-60s have launched in this area as part of a campaign to help people to stay young by improving strength, balance and overall health as we age. Amanda Abbott is on a mission to keep the over60s moving by encouraging them to go along to an exercise class with a difference, called ‘Move it or Lose it’, designed by Julie Robinson and seen on BBC’s “How to Stay Young”. This class is known as FABS, which stands for Flexibility, Aerobics, Balance and Strength. The FABS programme combines exercises that have been scientifically proven by the Centre for Healthy Ageing Research at the University of Birmingham to turn back the clock. Amanda Abbott explains how her ‘Move it or Lose it’ class can help older people feel fabulous about life: “I’m thrilled to be part of the FABS family. I want to make a real difference to the community and to get this age group feeling great about themselves again. There are so many classes and clubs aimed at the under-50s and very little for ‘baby boomers’ who still want to feel great but don’t like going to the gym to keep fit. It’s a fantastic way to get together with other people

in the area, keep fit and have fun whilst doing it! “The exercises we do in the classes are easy to follow and fun. This isn’t about people dressing in Lycra ready to hit the gym or do a high intensity session, FABS is for people who want to live longer, happier, healthier lives. “We ensure there’s a warm welcome for everyone who attends and the first session is free.”

Healthy Habits to Improve your Looks - Part 1 by Claire Saunders, Renu - Health, Beauty & Fitness

K

eeping motivation on a healthy eating routine or diet is not easy. Whilst you may have vowed that you were going to relinquish comfort foods and take up exercise more regularly, the reality of maintaining motivation in the longer term can be a challenge for the best of us. This month and next, Claire Saunders from Renu, will be sharing her top Healthy Habits to keep you on track, and make 2019 the year to love the way you look! Start as you mean to go on Your first meal of the day needs to be lean protein and good fats. Ditch the carb- loaded cereals and breads and go for eggs, smoked salmon, avocado or make a

Spanish omelette from last night’s left-over greens that you can cut into slices to eat on the run. Eat the first meal of the day whenever you like - you don’t have to eat the minute you get up. Focus on the food quality. Plan for success Plan your meals ahead. It’s cool these days to take your food with you in your Tupperware box. Take a few minutes each evening to prepare your food for the next day, or better still, batch cook at the weekend, so that you can stay on track all week. Buying snacks and lunches out is an expensive and fattening habit. This time of year, slow cookers are great and mean you can eat something

substantial before you reach for those fattening snacks. Try using frozen vegetables to save time and money; they are also great for making quick and nutritious soups. Create a weekly meal plan and a fat-loss-friendly shopping list to do your grocery shop on-line. This will save you time and money, as you won’t be tempted to impulse buy and it will keep you right on track with your goals.

Does your Back Pain Always Seem to Reoccur? asks Jake Somers BTEC Dip ST, Remedial and Sports Massage therapist

M

any of us will have the misfortune of suffering from lower back pain at some point in our lives. It is very common and can occur very suddenly or in a more subtle manner. It is, however, always inconvenient, badly timed and can never go fast enough. It is also something I see professionally most days in practice.

One thing that has become clear after assessing multiple patients with the same problem is that a large majority will have sustained a back injury at some point earlier in life. Many felt that they had recovered from the original injury, but there is often a little stiffness and restricted movement that remains, (often assumed as the new ‘normal’ or being age-related).A common cause of this is from the adhesions, or in other words internal scar tissue, which can be found at the site of the injury. These adhesions can ‘bind’ the various layers of muscle, fat and connective tissue which, in turn, limits their natural elasticity and smooth movements causing varying degrees of limited movement and, in many cases, pain. Research has shown that these adhesions are typically weaker, less elastic, prone to re-injury, and are more sensitive to pressure than healthy tissue. The result could be a reduced tolerance to some of life’s everyday activities and, in time, more persistent pain that lingers years after the initial injury.

The good news is that, in many cases, these adhesions can be broken down and healthy function restored to the injured area. Recovery time will vary of course, for example, depending on the amount of adhesions and how long ago the initial injury occurred. In fact, some professionals believe that adhesions are the root of the majority of physical imbalances. Working on the body to address adhesions early in their development can help minimise any of the preceding secondary problems. Sports massage can be an effective way to tackle this problem and restore healthy muscle function. If you would like to know more, or to see if I could help fix your recurring problem, then please contact the Wellhead Practice for more details. I practise here, three days a week, offering thirty or sixty minute consultations.

The 1:1 Diet by Cambridge Weight Plan I have struggled with my weight for many years, yo-yoing and losing and gaining the same couple of stone over and over again, on so many different diets. In October 2018, I finally decided that enough was enough and I needed to shift the weight for good. I decided to try something a bit different and chose the 1:1 Diet by Cambridge Weight Plan. Finding help was easy; I simply looked up my postcode on the Cambridge website and chose a consultant local to me. For the first time I’d found a diet I could stick to, a diet I enjoyed and a diet that worked consistently and quickly. I’m happy to say that in a few months I achieved my goal and I feel fabulous, confident and successful. I was so taken with the diet and the way it worked for me that I have trained to become a consultant myself so that I can help others achieve the same success that I did.

So, what is the 1:1 Diet by Cambridge Weight Plan, and why is it so successful? The 1:1 Diet is a six step, very low-calorie meal replacement diet that can be purely Cambridge Weight Plan products, or can be combined with low calorie meals depending on your health and weight-loss goals. There is a wide variety of products for you to choose, from shakes and soups to bars and small meals. It has recently been

rebranded as the 1:1 Diet, as one of the main reasons for success is the 1 to 1 support you receive from your consultant. Your consultant will weigh and measure you in a quiet and private space on a 1 to 1 basis, and help you decide which step is best suited to your needs. They will also provide you with your products. Their most important role, though, is to guide and support you with your diet, weight loss and your gradual transition to maintenance. As well as regular appointments, your consultant is there for you to message or call through the week if you need any support. If you would like to lose weight in a safe, fast and consistent way, this is the diet for you. No group meetings, no humiliating public weigh-ins, no competition or pressure. Just you, your

State-of-the-Art Dental Clinic Opens in Peterborough The newly opened Priestgate Clinic brings dental excellence to the heart of Peterborough. Run by dynamic married couple, Drs Catherine and Richard Cousley, the clinic combines stateof-the-art technology with first-class skills in dentistry and orthodontics, all underpinned by traditional values of patient care. Located in a 200-yearold, Grade II listed building in the city centre, this stylish and welcoming clinic offers a range of dental care for all ages, including specialist orthodontics, preventative and restorative dentistry and oral surgery. It is one of the most advanced clinics in the country in terms of embracing 3D technology. Patients could not be in more capable or caring hands. Catherine is a highly qualified and experienced dentist who believes that a dentist’s role isn’t simply to repair damage, but to use minimally

invasive dentistry, and also prevent future oral health problems. Richard is an innovative and expert orthodontist with a reputation for achieving excellent results in even the most complex cases. He was the lead consultant orthodontist at Peterborough City Hospital from 2001 to 2017, and is one of the few consultants in the UK to hold a national Clinical Excellence Award. The couple are joined by consultant oral and maxillofacial surgeon, Mr Clive Moss, who provides a private, patientfocussed oral and facial surgical service, such as the surgical removal of wisdom teeth. For more information or to book an appointment, contact the practice team on 01733 865000 or visit www. priestgateclinic.co.uk .

Our Extraordinary and Adaptable Brain The importance of brain plasticity Our amazing brain is continually moulding and modifying itself to our environment, events in our lives, words, feelings and the people around us. Without this ability, any brain, not just the human brain, would be unable to develop from infancy through to adulthood or recover from brain injury. Our brain is so exceptional because, unlike a computer, it processes sensory and motor signals in parallel. It has many neural pathways that can replicate another’s function, so that small errors in development or temporary loss of function through damage can be easily corrected by re-routing signals along a different pathway. Different pathways form and fall dormant, are created and cast-off, according to our personal experiences. So this vibrant process allows us to learn, develop and adapt to our ever-changing experiences. Every time we learn something new, we create new connections between the neurons and this is happening to all of us, all the time. This process can be encouraged and stimulated, allowing us to learn, relearn and direct our lives, thoughts and behaviours creating exciting possibilities.

This process can be so useful to us, enabling us to re-invent ourselves, move away from our current state of things, or to overcome past traumatic events which create anxiety/stress or depression and fears. This leads to avoidance behaviours which hold us back from living life to our fullest. By learning how to adjust our thought patterns and behaviours, Solution Focused Hypnotherapy helps you to create the changes you want in your extraordinary brain. If a person believes he or she can get smarter, better or more skilled at something through sustained effort, this is how neuroplasticity works, enabling us to purposefully rewire the brain to achieve what we really want. Learning a new language or a musical instrument works in this way, no matter what the age. The degree to which we apply the brain’s near-magical abilities is also dependent on how committed we are in encouraging neuroplasticity and how we approach life in general. Solution Focused Hypnotherapy can help you rewire your brain to make the best version of you.

Saint Lucian Experience

Clare Lockett

Travel Counsellor

St Lucia is a blanket of lush forest, emerald-cloaked mountains and palm-fringed beaches crowned by the magnificent Pitons. It’s regarded as one of the most beautiful islands in the Caribbean and one of the world’s most romantic destinations; St Lucia has long been a favourite with couples and honeymooners.  Plenty of Activities Gros Piton Hike The Pitons are perhaps the most iconic image of Saint Lucia, and the summit of Gros Piton showcases the island in all its glory, with spectacular views of its lush rainforest landscape and blue Caribbean Sea for miles. Visitors can embark on a half-day hike of Gros Piton, but at an impressive 2,600ft high, be warned that this hike is not for the faint-hearted!  Whale and Dolphin Watching Boat Tour Pilot whales, sperm whales and spotted dolphins all call the local waters home. See these magnificent creatures in their natural environment on a fun-filled boat trip. You’ll also have plenty of opportunities to see some of the island’s otherwise hidden spots, including Marigot Bay, and view the Pitons from the sea. Segway Nature Tour Taking you through the nature trail of Mount Primard, this unique experience allows you to try something new, whilst still learning about the island’s history. The Segways are safe and easy to navigate and don’t worry, you’ll have a twenty-minute orientation/practice session to get the hang of it before heading out on the trail.

“Didn’t We Have a Love … erly Time the Day we Went to Strictly?” Apologies first of all, to anyone not familiar with the 1979 hit single by Fiddler’s Dram recounting their trip to Bangor – hence the title. However, I’m sure we’re all familiar with the phenomenon that is “Strictly Come Dancing”. Here, our own “Dancing Queen”, Claire, shares with us her recent fabulous day out at the “Strictly Live Tour” date at Nottingham’s Motorpoint Arena on the afternoon of February 6th. Claire was accompanied by her mum and both were delighted to have been invited to travel in style and see the stars, courtesy of leading local coach travel and excursions specialists, Shaws of Maxey. From the moment their driver, “Jolly” Jason, welcomed them aboard, issued clear instructions and helpful advice, eased his coach effortlessly through heavy traffic to return them safely and in extreme comfort, the treat was a wonderful success. Highlights abounded, including a show-stopping dance from judges, Darcey Bussell and Shirley Ballass, (not as if Aljaz, Pasha and co. really need showing how it should be done). Joe Sugg proved a worthy winner on the day, whilst Ore Oduba compered beyond compare … and Craig just had to offer his suggestion on how the day went for Claire and her mum … FAB – U – LOUS!!! Claire is very grateful for having been given the opportunity of experiencing one of Shaws’ many day trips offered this year. They are many and varied and offer extremely good value for money. Why not treat yourself this summer?

Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust - Bourne Area Group’s 50th Anniversary The Bourne Area Group of the Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust, (also covering Stamford and Market Deeping), will celebrate its fiftieth anniversary on April 9th 2019. The Group organises a lively, local agenda each year for Trust members living in the area, currently numbering over six hundred households. Nonmembers are, also, welcome to attend most events. The group will hold a number of special events to celebrate the golden anniversary, in addition to open days at Dole Wood, (in April for the bluebells), and at Deeping Lakes in June. There will be two special family events, in July and October, the second of these having a Halloween theme, and some afternoon and evening guided walks. On March 15th, the indoor meeting will review in pictures the memories of the last fifty years, as well as looking forward to the challenging years ahead. The Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust’s Chief Executive, Paul Learoyd, will talk about his future vision for area groups and to respond to what will no doubt be a wide range of questions raised. All of the activities through 2019 will be advertised in local newspapers, village newsletters

and posters on display – as well, of course, through the Area Group newsletter, Facebook and web sites. If you have any queries about the Bourne Area Group, would like to volunteer in some way or have any comments that you’d like to share, then please go to LWTBAG2018@gmail.com. Details of the programme and volunteering is on the group’s website (http://www.freewebs. com/bournetrust/) with updates on their Facebook page (search

for ‘Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust – Bourne Area Group’). Details of all the Trust’s reserves and how to become a Trust member are available at http://www. lincstrust.org.uk/.

Reserves in the area include Deeping Lakes, Dole Wood, Thurlby Fen, Tortoiseshell Wood, Stanton’s Pit, Robert’s Field, Toft Tunnel, Lawn Wood and Meadows and Horbling Line – with the first four of these being designated Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) due to their flora and fauna. The Bourne Area Group has, also, actively supported the Trust’s work at some neighbouring reserves such as the recently acquired Willow Tree Fen. These reserves cover a wide range of habitats from fen wetland to ancient woodland, with their associated plants, butterflies, moths, dragon and damselflies, birds, mammals, fish, and other species. The reserves in the Bourne area can be visited throughout the year, with a few restrictions due to periods of livestock grazing and breeding seasons.

A Night to Remember with Jonathan Veira!

Local Stores Support Unemployed

Bourne Salvation Army would like to invite you to a special evening with Jonathan Veira on Friday March 8th at 7.30pm. The performance will take place in the centre of town at the Bourne Corn Exchange.

When Carlsberg closed their Bourne depot in early 2017, the support that their staff gave to local charities at Christmas stopped. However, along with donations of stock from local supermarkets, (Lidl, Tesco, Sainsburys and Elsea Park Co-op), Toolbar was able to continue what Carlsberg started. In 2017 and 2018 they were able to give out bags of goodies to help make the Christmas break a little more enjoyable for some of those without jobs.

An audience with Jonathan Veira is one not to be missed! If you haven’t seen him before, he performs all over the country with his extremely popular one-man concerts and has been a guest many times at the Christian Spring Harvest events. Jonathan uses his voice and his skills as a musician on the piano and guitar, together with his talents as a comedian. This show goes from opera to pop and includes jazz and even Country and Western along the way - everyone finds a song that they love in this show. Jonathan’s anecdotes and comments on life resonate with his guests which often result in great hilarity shared by all. Tickets are on sale from Bourne Salvation Army and are £10 each.  Please contact us to book we are more than happy to do this for you over the phone on 01778 393459 or via e-mail bourne@ salvationarmy.org.uk. We look forward to seeing you there!

The generosity of the stores involved is much appreciated by Toolbar, and it is hoped that they can repeat the exercise in the years to come. It may be possible that some stores will agree to offer additional funding through the year. Toolbar provides impartial, and independent, support and advice to those without work every Monday morning between 10.30am and 12noon, at the Bourne Snooker Centre.

Butterfield Day Care Centre Race Night Raises Big Cash The equine influenza epidemic which wrecked many a race meeting nationally early in February was fortunately nowhere to be seen in Bourne recently. It wasn’t around ‘fur long’ and so that was one hurdle that did not need to be overcome! Instead, Chair of Bourne’s Butterfield Day Care Centre, Councillor Jane Kingman, reports on their very successful, fund-raising Race Night on February 10th. “I would like to say a massive thanks to Ian (Sismey, Town Clerk) and his wife, as well my fellow Councillors and Trustees for all the hard work that went into the Race Night. They worked very hard on the tote and raffle and, for £5 a ticket which included a delicious buffet, it was definitely a bargain. We had many raffle prizes donated and the event was very well supported on the night. Everyone had a thoroughly enjoyable evening and we are looking forward to many more fundraisers throughout the year”. It is thought that a sum in the region of £1,500 was raised! m a rch 2 0 19

Mayor

Words from the Mayor David Mapp

We have just celebrated, (if that is the correct word), Christine’s birthday which on this occasion was one of those significant numbers that end in a zero. I’m forbidden to say which one. Perhaps it’s needless to point out, as indeed she did, that I passed this notable event some little while ago! As Bourne’s Mayor, I have been very fortunate to meet lovely people and also visit places I would not normally expect to see. One of those places is the Sue Ryder Hospice at Thorpe Hall Peterborough, where the caring staff, tranquil rooms and gardens help deal with that time in life that comes to us all. I am obviously aware of all the great work carried out at the Hospice, for both patients and families alike, but am now better informed of the work undertaken by their outreach staff in the community, especially in Bourne. Christine and I thank Rachel Hancock for our informative meeting and walk around the Hall, learning about the history of the organisation. YOUR COUNCIL MATTERS • Town Council Elections - If you feel you would like to get involved in making decisions about your local community, local issues, and making a contribution to the area in

which you live or work, then the May elections could be for you. The areas of interest covered are all local, including environmental, transport, government finances, amenities, planning/ housing, community events and antisocial behaviour/ policing. To apply, you must be over 18 and meet the criteria for working or living in or near the town. If you would like to discuss the role of Town Councillor, or obtain more details of the criteria, please contact the Town Clerk on 01778 426123 or e-mail: clerk.bournetc@btconnect.com. Nomination papers are available at the Town Council offices from March 19th. • The Town Council has agreed the budget for 2019/20 to be levied by South Kesteven District Council. The rate will increase, for an average home in Bourne, by 3.8% from £27.36 last year to £28.44 for 2019/20. Returning to Brexit, (one more last time ... I think), a friend of mine heard that lots of big companies were planning to leave Britain as Brexit would be bad for business. He panicked. He relocated his bucket-and-spade shop from Skegness to Gstaad in Switzerland. Brexit has certainly been bad for his business.

The Potting Shed March can be a busy month for sowing, particularly indoors – aubergines chillies and peppers –indoors or heated greenhouses – brassicas such as Brussels, sprouting broccoli cabbages, summer autumn and red. Cabbages can be given a head start by sowing the seeds under cover and planting on when all frost risk has passed. Keep the weeds at bay and hoe regularly.Don’t forget to feed your over-wintered crops such as onions, kale, spring cabbage - use blood, fish and bone meal, chicken manure or seaweed-based organic fertiliser. Also, herbs such as rosemary and sage will benefit from a good trim, and chives and mint can be propagated by dividing them and re-planting. If you have chitted your first early potatoes and the ground is not frozen, they can be planted out from mid-March or early April but it is well worth covering them to protect them from the late frosts. Don’t forget to add a light sprinkling of fertiliser to the trench and plant earlies about 30cm (12inches) apart with 40-50cm (16-60 inches) between rows, with the shoots pointing upwards. Second earlies and maincrop need more growing space, so plant them about 38cm (15inches) apart and 75cm (30inches) between rows. When the shoots appear, earth up each plant by covering it with a ridge of soil. If you want to grow asparagus, now is the time to prepare

your bed and plant the crowns by digging a trench 12 inches deep and adding some well-rotted manure. Make a 4 inch ridge at the base and spread the roots of the crown over the ridge, replace the soil, leaving the tips just visible. Water in and add mulch. Don’t forget to leave the asparagus for two years before harvesting –it’s well worth the wait! Other jobs for this month include: • Lettuces and other salad crops can be sown, either indoors or outdoors, under cloches or in cold frames. Tomato and cucumber seeds can be sown indoors but wait until the end of the month. • Plant out onion and shallot sets. • Early varieties of carrot, beetroot, spring onions, peas, chard, parsnips, spinach and broad beans can be sown into the open ground. • Last chance for planting bare-rooted fruit trees and bushes. • Feed and mulch fruit trees –fertilise the base, water in and then cover with well-rotted manure or compost to act as a mulch. • Check cabbages for caterpillars and pick off. • Remove dead leaves from cabbages and Brussels.

Your Garden

Spring is Coming and Your Lawn is Calling for Attention ! Spring: the season of awakening and new life, the blooming of fresh buds and re-emerging beautiful colour. It can be a truly inspiring time that is invigorating to the senses. Preparing your garden to spend more time in it with family and friends requires a little effort, but the results can be a gorgeous green space of which you can be proud. GreenThumb Lawn Treatment Service shares their expert advice to help you get the very best from your lawn over the spring months and prepare it for the transition into summer. The amount of lawn mowing required, now winter is over, will naturally increase; GreenThumb recommends implementing a good, regular mowing programme. Dry, sunny days are the best conditions for lawn mowing. It’s important that mower blades are kept sharp or replaced when needed, to avoid causing damage to the grass plant. Also, cutting the grass too short, too soon will weaken the grass which will attract unwanted weeds and moss. If possible, it is best for a lawn to be cut at least once a week, to a minimum height of about 25mm (1”). A little maintenance in the form of consistent mowing will help train the grass to be stronger over time. Another way to help a lawn through spring is to rake up any dead leaves and twigs from the lawn and cut back overhanging shrubs and

plants; this is because grass needs as much direct sunlight and air as possible to stay healthy and green. As the ground starts to warm, it’s a good time to repair bare patches that can appear over winter. To do so, carefully rake the patch to create a bed, sow the seeds with a little top-soil and don’t let them dry out; they should germinate in a few days (temperature permitting). GreenThumb can assist in this regard, as they have their own bespoke seed and an excellent 100% organic top-dressing. GreenThumb treatments are tailored with the greatest care for the UK’s lawns: they work with you to transform your grass into a healthy, fresh and beautiful lawn. PRICES FROM

Purchasing Your Home in Joint Names? When purchasing property in joint names, your solicitor/conveyancer must ask you if you wish to purchase as “Joint Tenants” or “Tenants in Common”. It is vital that your solicitor/conveyancer explains these terms, and advises on what is right for you, based upon your personal circumstances. Joint Tenants Under a joint tenancy, you both own the whole property. You will have an equal share but, if one of you dies, the whole property will automatically pass to the survivor, even if you have made a will leaving your “share” to someone else. In most cases, this may be appropriate for husbands and wives, but there are reasons why they should hold as “tenants in common”. Buying a property with your partner or friend may involve contributing different amounts to the deposit, or you may be relying on parents to fund the deposit. Also, one party may wish to make a will, leaving the whole or

part of their “share” to a third party, (for example a child from a previous relationship). These are just a few examples, but there can be many reasons why you might need to own as “tenants in common”. Tenants in Common Under this arrangement, you will be joint owners, but you can specify the “shares” in which you wish to own the property. Although you can still be equal owners, your solicitor/ conveyancer should advise on whether or not owning the property as “tenants in common” is the right choice for you, (for example, you may wish to protect the deposit you have paid before the net equity is

divided equally on a future sale of the property). When buying, you naturally don’t want to think about the possibility that you may break up. However, the sad truth is that it does sometimes happen. When “joint tenants” split up and have to sell, many of our clients say, “I wish I had taken your advice to hold as tenants in common”. Also, it is surprising how many people say that the option of owning as “joint tenants” or “tenants in common” was not explained to them when they purchased. This is one of many important aspects of a conveyancing transaction that can be overlooked.

Your Finances

Attention - Higher Rate Taxpayers Wanted! - by Richard Ash & Matthew Biggs - Liberty Partnership Ltd

• A higher rate tax payer £60 – tax relief of £20 will be given and an additional £20 claimed.

Unless you really enjoy giving your hard-earned money to the tax man, I think it’s safe to say we would all like to pay as little tax as possible – especially if you are subject to ‘higher’ or ‘additional’ rates of taxation. For the 2018/19 tax year, if you earn above £46,350, the excess is taxed at 40% - ouch! However, there are some ways in which you can manage the amount of income tax you pay. Sounds interesting – right? One of the most effective ways of managing your income tax liability is to utilise what’s called your ‘annual allowance’. Your annual allowance relates to the amount you can contribute to your personal pension and receive tax relief.

44

D I S C O V E R I N G

• An additional rate tax payer £55 - tax relief of £20 will be given and an additional £25 claimed.

Tax relief? This is an amount that is added to your pension contribution by the government. The amount received is based on your marginal rate of tax – so if you’re a higher rate tax payer, you will effectively receive 40% relief on your contribution. In simple terms a £100 pension contribution will cost: • A basic rate tax payer £80 – tax relief of £20 will be given.

Bourne

If you would like to talk to one of our experienced Financial Planners about utilising your annual allowance before the end of the 2018/19 tax year, then please contact the office on 01778 342291 to arrange a FREE initial consultation. But be quick – though technically you only have until the start of April to take advantage of this tax year’s annual allowance, you will definitely need to come and see us sooner!!!

History

Discovering . . . The Red Hall

Rex Needle

T

he most famous secular building in Bourne is the Elizabethan style Red Hall that has survived several attempts to pull it down but is now protected by a Grade II* listing. It was built in 1605 by Gilbert Fisher, a London grocer, who wished to pursue the life of a country gentleman and who used locally made red bricks for the construction which give the property its distinctive name.

For the next 100 years, the building was subjected to the daily vibrations of steam locomotives and freight wagons rumbling past and miraculously, it has survived without serious damage but when the railway station closed in 1959, local councillors were almost unanimous in their decision to pull it down. The building was also offered to the National Trust for safe keeping but the offer was refused.

Mr Fisher’s dream home, however, ruined him because he spent so much in the process that he died in debt although his descendants managed to live there for almost a century followed by the Digby family whose tenancy led to the mistaken belief that it was used by conspirators of the Gunpowder Plot to blow up the Houses of Parliament.

The hall subsequently stood empty and neglected for several years until 1962 when Bourne United Charities acquired the freehold and after a prolonged period of refurbishment funded by grants and donations, the building was restored to its original glory for use as a museum and community centre and its colourful exterior remains a tourist attraction, frequently photographed by visitors and even used as a location for film and television dramas.

Lady Catherine, as she became known, went to live there as a young bride, having married the owner, James Digby who was thirty-seven years her senior, and she spent her time creating a fine garden around the house which she loved. James died in 1811 and Catherine, the last of the Digbys, in 1836 when the Red Hall became a private school until 1860 by which time the railways were arriving in Bourne and it was sold for use as a booking office and home for the stationmaster with a connecting footbridge to enable passengers to reach the platforms.

Bourne

There is a tale that the Red Hall is haunted by the ghost of a grey lady who flits through the rooms of this 17th century mansion on moonlit nights. Stories of the apparition have persisted over the years and for those who do believe in ghosts, perhaps it is that of Lady Catherine who was so reluctant to leave.

Bourne ‘Home Owning’ Movers and Shakers in 2018

It is now commonly agreed amongst economists and the general public that the dramatic rise in Bourne property prices of the last six years has come to an end. So, let me share with you what, exactly, is happening in the Bourne property market, and more specifically, who is moving and why in Bourne. The majority of sales in Bourne during the last twelve months were detached properties, selling for an average price of £276,700. Semi-detached properties sold for an average of £185,300, with terraced properties fetching approximately £176,900.

So, whatever is happening in the world with Brexit, Trump, China, and the Stock Market … the Bourne housing market is in decent shape for the medium to long term. If we do have small corrections in values in the next 12 to 18 months, in the long term, house prices have always returned ... and returned with vengeance. Like I say to anyone buying a property, be they a first-time buyer, landlord or homeowner ... property is a long game ... and if you play the long game, you will always win!

A new crackdown on scammers has been launched across Cambridgeshire and Peterborough with the aim of making the county scam-free –and Safe Local Trades is delighted to be supporting it! The Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Against Scams Partnership (CAPASP) is committed to working towards stamping out scams; from postal to online fraud, to telephone scams and doorstep rogue traders. Over the next few months, we will be looking in more detail at these scams and the warning signs which could prevent you from parting with your hard-earned cash. So, postal scams … what are they are how can we spot the signals? An official-looking letter drops through the door – you open it and to your delight and amazement you have won a substantial amount of cash in a prize draw, or have been left a large sum in a will. The letter instructs you to share your personal and bank details so that the money can be paid directly into your account. What do you do? That glossy catalogue landing on the doormat is selling ‘miracle’ diet supplements, and that oh so accurate letter from the experienced clairvoyant has got your first personal reading spot on, but you need to pay for a follow-up. What do you do? All these seem too good to be true – free money, a better future and a new, improved you! That’s because they are; in fact these are some of the clever postal scams currently causing misery to people locally and further afield. The correspondence will look ‘official’ – cleverly designed to fool the recipient; often with lots of attention to detail. Some tell-tale signs include: • Requests are made for money first, before getting the prize. • Use of the customer’s first name to make the letter look personal. • The letter is written to put people under pressure to reply. • PO boxes are used, instead of a full postal address. • ‘Too good to be true’, dazzling offers. • A director’s name, picture, signature and stamps are used to make it look official. • Fake testimonials or money-back guarantees are often used. • The letter often asks the recipient to keep their winnings a secret. ADVICE Don’t reply to unsolicited mail e.g. lotteries and prize draw letters – instead, either return to sender, or send it to the Royal Mail at FREEPOST SCAM MAIL. Do sign up for FREE to the Mailing Preference Service (MPS) at www.mpsonline.org.uk or on call 0845 703 4599; this will help stop sales and marketing mail from within the UK. If you think you, or a loved one, may have been the victim of a scam, report it to Action Fraud. To find out how you can sign up for the fight against fraud, and read some tips on spotting a scam, visit www.friendsagainstscams.org.uk. In addition, Safe Local Trades has its own advice on tell-tale signs of a lottery, prize draw or sweepstake scam.

Use WhatsApp on Your PC by Taff Lovesey, Lites PC

Many people are now using WhatsApp to communicate from their phone, but it is also possible to use the app from a PC, providing you have a mobile phone, utilising your PC as an additional device to your existing WhatsApp account. How to use WhatsApp on your PC Using WhatsApp on your PC is called WhatsApp Web. Most modern smartphones support his option including Android, iPhone, Nokia, Windows Phone and Blackberry. I’ll focus on the process for an Android device, but the steps for other phone types are similar and can be found online. • Open web.whatsapp.com on your computer using the web browser (i.e. Chrome, Firefox, Opera, Safari or Edge are compatible). • Open the WhatsApp on your phone by tapping on it. • Open the Chats screen and select Menu and then WhatsApp Web. • There will be a QR code (looks like a scrambled barcode) on the computer screen. Scan this using your phone. WhatsApp will then open in your computer browser and you’ll be able to use it to send messages as you would on your phone. I find this incredibly handy, especially if I want to copy and paste WhatsApp messages from one chat to another.

A Meal Ticket for Life? The concept of ongoing spousal maintenance, normally by an ex-husband to the ex-wife, has not existed as a principle in divorce cases for many years. To the contrary, the Courts actually have to strive to achieve a clean break in financial orders, as much as it is reasonably possible. Nonetheless, there are sometimes circumstances where it would be completely unfair to cut a wife adrift from all future financial support if, for example, she has spent decades, by mutual agreement with the husband, as a mother and housewife and does not have the qualifications or experience in the workplace necessary to get a job. More changes are afoot, and not to a wife’s advantage. The Divorce (Financial Provision) Bill which is in its final stages in Parliament, proposes a five year cap on any spousal maintenance, save for exceptional circumstances. This is the handiwork of the crossbench peer, Baroness Deech, who has long opposed ongoing divorce payments. Your local family law solicitor would not agree with this proscriptive approach. If you want to know more about these changes, contact a family law specialist to find out.

Riverside Beads and Crafts – For All Your Craft and Beading Supplies Riverside Beads and Crafts was founded in 2002 by Donna McKean Smith and has grown considerably over the years. The large shop at 83 High Street, Market Deeping, stocks a fantastic selection of craft, art, haberdashery and beading materials, along with lots of other craft materials, perfect for everyone from enthusiastic hobbyists, kids craft projects to simply replacing a missing button! With the increasing popularity of beading and craft projects in general, it was felt the need to seek a much larger premises. Consequently, two years ago, Donna and her team moved, enabling them not only to increase their range of stock but to also have a separate training room, which has proved to be a most valuable asset. This year, Riverside Beads and Crafts were thrilled to win “Craft Shop of the Midlands” and to be highly commended “for their extensive range of angel kits” in the international craft awards, which is an incredible achievement for Donna and the team. They are celebrating the win with a party for all of their customers, offering free beading and crafting ‘make and take’ demonstrations, special offers and cake and coffee too, on Thursday February 28th, between 10am and 2pm – a generous recognition of their gratitude for the support given by their loyal customers. What’s more, Riverside Beads and Crafts will be celebrating their seventeenth birthday party on May 5th and 6th, so look out for more crafting and cake! Riverside has grown to be a household name in the jewellery-making and craft industry, bringing a wonderful range of craft and beading materials both to the shop and online at www.riversidebeads. co.uk and www.riversidecrafts.co.uk. The team have a great passion for beads and crafts and are always looking for new products to challenge even the most experienced crafter. Their friendly knowledgeable team aim to deliver quality value products from their Market Deeping Store. They also offer inspirational workshops in the riverside “makery”, working with talented local artists and

tutors to bring a varied range of classes, including calligraphy and pyrography, along with their popular card-making, scrapbooking and jewellery-making classes.

School News Swallow Hill Nursery Spreads its Wings Changes are afoot in Thurlby, where the village pre-school has moved to a larger, freshly remodelled premises on Swallow Hill and expanded its opening hours to accommodate local working families. After managing Thurlby Pre-school for ten years in its previous farmyard location, Manager Sarah Austin (B.A, Q.T.S, E.Y.P.S.), is excited to be able to offer childcare places for thirty children, aged from three months to four-years-old, all-year-round at the newly renamed Swallow Hill Nursery. Sarah explains, “This change of location means that, as well as continuing to have fun with our preschool children and ensuring they are all reaching their potential as they leave us and enter our formal education system, we can also look after children, in their own community, for an extended day, whilst parents are out at work; obviously we welcome those from out of the village to join us too.” Deputy Manager, Hannah Dubell (B.Ed. Hons), agrees, “As a parent and a practitioner at Thurlby Pre-school, it has been very exciting to be part of the development of the nursery, bringing what we know about young children’s learning and development, and working with the parents’ and children’s ideas for what they would like to see and use.” The new building has undergone quite a radical reconstruction since it was purchased by the pre-school last summer. Staff, pre-school families and friends all eagerly volunteered their time at the new building: whitewashing walls, taming the garden, painting

a mural, designing a new logo and creating a garden sensory path. Little by little, what was once a cluttered residential bungalow became a bright, modern, comfortable childcare facility, with a baby room referred to as The Nest and an art studio and a two-storey role play area for the older children in The Sky Room, as well as a garden rich for exploring. Sarah is keen to maintain the “home-from-home” feel at the nursery with re-purposed vintage furniture, natural materials and cosy sofas and rugs. This homely atmosphere is enhanced by the provision of hot meals made from scratch by staff in the new kitchen. As the weather improves, staff also hope to grow vegetables in the garden with the children for them to eat. The feedback about the new building from parents and teachers alike has been overwhelmingly positive, praising Sarah’s vision for the setting and the “beautiful”, “calming” and “cosy” atmosphere she and the staff have created. “It’s just a lovely space for little people,” one mum enthused. Thurlby Pre-school has long been seen as a high quality, teacher-led, early years’ provision which has been valued by families in Thurlby and neighbouring communities for being a small, friendly and happy learning environment where children can readily access the outdoors and participate in rural village life. Swallow Hill Nursery is continuing that legacy for the next generation. There are a few places still available. Please call Sarah Austin (01778) 394250 or e-mail enquiries@ thurlbypreschool for more details, or to arrange a visit. Photographs of the setting can be seen on the Swallow Hill Nursery Facebook page. 

Nursery Continues to Build Strong Links with the Community From September 2017, Headstart Nursery in Bourne began taking their Pre-School children to the local care home. During these visits the children took part in some brilliant two-way activities and really built some excellent relationships with the staff and the residents.

visits to the ‘Ginger Fox Café’ where they bring their pennies and buy themselves a drink and a biscuit. The children have also visited the local market and bought some fruit and vegetables for their role play area, and walked to the bus stop and went on a short bus ride.

This year, Headstart really wanted to extend this and provide as many opportunities as possible to interlink with the local area and to become a part of the community themselves.

In the upcoming months, Headstart are looking at paying regular visits to the library for a ‘Storytime’ and, following the success from last year, are also looking at hosting another Family Fun Day , that would be open for all families to attend.

To support this, our Toddler room have begun regular m a rch 2 0 19

Pets and Vets

Blood Testing Older Pets Taking blood samples from humans and animals is routine nowadays and can give a good insight into the health of your pet, especially our ‘senior citizens’. Dogs and cats over the age of eight (or five for the giant breeds) are considered to be ‘senior citizens’ and we expect them to start slowing down. They tend to sleep more and are less playful. But there could be other reasons why your pet may be slowing down. The most obvious is arthritis and joint disease. Wear and tear over the years can cause damage to protective cartilage covering within joints. The discomfort stimulates the body to produce inflammation around the joint and bony growths to try to fix the joint in position. Your pet initially feels pain and discomfort and the joint begins to seize up with a reduced range of movement and flexibility. There are many new drugs available to ease the discomfort of arthritic joints and finding the most suitable one for your pet is often a case of trial and error. However, when pets are relieved of this pain, owners often report a very noticeable difference in their pet’s attitude and ability to exercise. The anti-inflammatories will not take away excess bone growth and your pet may still hobble, but he’ll be in a lot more comfort. Routine blood testing in older animals is also very useful for the early detection of disease. A small sample sent to the lab can reveal a lot about your pet’s health.

Blood smears tell us about blood counts. A reduction of red blood cells and the oxygen-carrying protein (haemoglobin) they carry, is known as anaemia. But this is only a symptom and the pathologists at the lab can help us determine the cause of the anaemia in the first place. An increase in white blood cells can certainly be due to infection, but changes can also be due to stress, drugs, parasitic disease and cancers of the bloodstream and a pathologist’s interpretation is very important here too. Biochemistry of the blood informs us of the workings of the internal organs, whether the kidneys, liver or thyroid organs are functioning as they should. Early detection of change within these organs means that investigation of disease and treatment can begin, and there is a better chance of curing the disease or slowing the rate of deterioration. Often a urine sample is needed as well, and this can be tricky for owners to obtain. A small foil tray, that has never had sugar in it, slid underneath a dog as it is peeing can get enough for testing, (usually a teaspoonful is plenty). Cats can be a lot harder and we have artificial litter, in the form if tiny non-absorbent plastic balls, that can be used in place of normal cat litter. Hopefully, routine testing on the older pet will find no problems at all, but having that peace of mind is well worth a thimble-full of blood.
