Introduction

Welcome to Your April Issue. Easter- the only time of the year when it’s perfectly safe to put all your eggs in one basket! And talking of Easter eggs, this month why not take a stroll around the shops in Bourne and try your hand in our Easter Hunt competition, where a “chocolate explosion” could well be your reward? The quality of the advice and recommendations given by our contributors, month after month, is something of which we are particularly proud, here at “Discovering Bourne”. So, when someone like Taff Lovesey at Lites PC decides to call it a day on the computer-related features he has provided since 2012, then we will all miss his valuable contributions in the months to come. We thank you Taff for having made so much sense out of this infuriating little machine for so long! Enjoy the magazine, and best wishes for a happy Easter to you all.

I’m sure we’re all ready for a break from the occasional passing reference in the news to Brexit, so it was particularly exciting to hear that, as from April 1st 2019, the UK would just ditch Brexit and join Greenland, (to become the world’s leading producer of “green energy” from melting their enormous ice reserves). Great news for us gin and tonic drinkers too! This month we include our usual plethora of fake news, real news and a brilliant idea from a talented young performer, Georgie Jones, with her “I Do Poems” on page ? – something to make that special day even more special. Read about the other B.B.C. (Bourne Bowls Club), the Galletly Medical Practice with its extension now complete, and Toft Country House Hotel with its new tea room. And finally … a friend of mine spent twenty years as a limo driver without a single customer - all that time and nothing to chauffeur it! He once woke up with a face full of rice - must have fallen asleep as soon as his head hit the pilau. Enjoy the read and the Easter break.

Toft Country House Hotel and Golf Club – ‘Sleeping Giant’ Re-awakening? Six months on from having been introduced to Tom Munt, the new leaseholder at Toft Country House Hotel and Golf Course, and reporting on his ambitious aspirations to re-establish Toft as one of the leading venues in the area, it was a delight to be able to check on progress, and to meet Michael Norbury, recently appointed ‘Hotel and Events Sales Manager’. Being a local resident, Michael has been able to see for himself how there appears to be an increasing demand for hotels and the like to provide afternoon teas in our local area. The concept of travelling to a “destination tea room” for an afternoon meal seems to have become much more established recently. With this in mind then, the restaurant at the Toft Country House Hotel is in the process of being re-launched on April 2nd as exactly that, a welcoming, family friendly, destination tea room. Until recently, this large room has been used for residents’ breakfasts, evening meals and small functions which did not require the space offered by the adjoining George Suite, (a very popular venue for parties and wedding receptions.) Needless to add, here lies the issue – one large room boasting two huge windows, (one overlooking the beautifully maintained gardens, and the other on to the patio with its top-quality furniture), but with relatively few customers setting foot in it for most of the day. By transforming this space into a “destination tea room”, therefore, the aim will be to enable the public more than ever to appreciate that Toft House is not just “the golf course with the bar across the road”! The room, however, will still be available for evening meals, private hires and functions, as required.

Between Tuesdays and Sundays, from 7am and 6pm, the new tea room will offer a comprehensive range of speciality teas and coffees, alongside many food options, and not just “light-bites” and cakes. The Breakfast Award 2018-19 from “Visit England”, praising the quality of the Hotel’s breakfast offering provides the encouragement that what will be available from the tea-room will be of high quality, locally-sourced and produced in-house.This tea room innovation is amongst several other ideas which Michael was eager to explain to me. A repeat of 2018’s summer weather will see the patio and gardens, leading off from the tea room, become much more child-friendly, whilst the feasibility of a marquee for al fresco wedding celebrations is already under investigation. It could be said that Toft House Hotel and Golf Club, the ‘sleeping giant’, on Bourne’s doorstep, is starting to re-awaken!

Beautifully Original Idea from Bourne’s Georgie Jones – “I Do Poems” Georgie Jones is a poet and writer. She has recently finished twelve months as ‘Resident Artist’ at the Roundhouse in London, during which time she developed her first longform poetry show,‘Ish’, to be debuted at the Brighton Fringe Festival in May this year. She has performed to sold-out theatres in London, on the Poetry Stage at ‘Bestival’ and Channel 4 film screenings. In 2017, two of her best friends got married and asked if she would write a poem to be read at the ceremony. She said, “Yes, of course”, although this was totally new territory and felt much more momentous than anything she had written before. After lots of conversations, and even more cups of tea, she wrote; Love and be loved and leave love between the pages of your favourite books, sew it into hemlines, and swallow it alongside the first morning’s sip of Yorkshire Tea from underneath warm sheets. Tell it your postcode and give it your spare key and request it stops by unannounced. That’s just the beginning of a much longer poem, but it went down brilliantly and, several recommendations later, Georgie’s business,“I Do Poems”, was born; a bespoke service, creating personal poems for weddings, celebrations and events. So, how does it work?

Georgie says, “Like most good things, it starts with a big chat and a cup of tea. The tea, unlike the chat, is non-compulsory but I like to opt in. We’ll discuss the occasion, purpose and recipient of the poem; meanwhile, I’ll be scribbling notes and asking lots of questions, many of which may seem inconsequential, but it’s the tiny details that help to make each poem so personal; it’s about capturing the little things, the seemingly insignificant things, the quirks. Then I’ll squirrel myself away somewhere and write. When it’s finished, I’ll send you the poem in both written and audio form, (I always think it’s nice to hear it and it helps with performance if the poem’s going to be read aloud).If you’d like to make any changes, this is the time and we’ll keep going until you’re completely happy.”

Healthy Habits to Improve your Looks - Part 2 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. Last month and now this, Claire Saunders from Renu, shares her top Healthy Habits to keep you on track, and make 2019 the year to love the way you look!

Don’t allow yourself to be tempted It could well be that you still have sugary, fattening foods hanging around the house. If that is the case, YOU WILL eat them! Instead, give

them away to the local food bank, freeze them or, at the very least, put them in a box and seal it up, to be opened when you have reached your goal. The thirty minute rule! Time is precious. Plan your activity schedule and put it in your diary. Did you know that, if you exercise for thirty minutes, three times a week for four weeks in a row, you are 80% more likely to achieve your goals? It may be only thirty minutes, but if you do not put it in your diary, you will probably let other things get in the way. Put this at the top of your priority list, arranging other events around it, and you will see and feel the difference! You are far more likely to stick with your eating plan if you are keeping the thirty minute rule

Develop a good sleep routine Sleep is where the body resets and burns fat. Cut down your “screen time” in the evening and try relaxing in a hot bath instead. Give yourself the time to relax and recuperate from the pressures of the day and treat yourself to some essential bath oils, rather than fattening snacks. Reveal your inner radiance Life is so hectic these days and the stresses and strains of daily life can leave us putting our own needs last. This can lead to another year of disapproving looks at ourselves in the mirror. A well-nourished, rested body will make you exude radiance in your skin and body, and boost your energy levels.

Includes unlimited use of the gym, unlimited spin classes and TWO studio classes of your choice. Call now to book. *Offer limited to one per customer, Offer ends on 30th April.

Five Steps to Healthy Feet

by Amy Leverton, Podiatry and chiropody team, Wellhead Practice

A

my Leverton is a member of the podiatry and chiropody team at the Wellhead Practice. She has experience in both the NHS and private practices, is a member of the Society of Chiropodists and Podiatrists, and is registered with the Health and Care Professionals Council.

“Feet are extremely complex,” Amy says, “but there are five really simple things people can do to maximise foot health”. 1. Wear the right shoes “It sounds obvious, but wearing good quality and well-fitting shoes is really important,” advises Amy. Poor footwear can cause common problems like corns and calluses, but can also contribute to more chronic, biomechanical disorders like plantar fasciopathy (heel pain). Feet also expand over the course of a day, so another tip is to avoid shoe shopping in the morning, or you may find that your new shoes are too tight by the afternoon! 2. Cut your nails correctly “At the Wellhead Practice, we are very experienced in surgical procedures for onychocryptosis (ingrowing

toenails),” Amy says, “but you can minimise the risk by ensuring you cut your nails correctly and regularly”. The best technique is to cut straight across the nail and avoid any curves. The Wellhead podiatry team offer professional nail cutting and care, which is particularly beneficial for those with limited mobility. 3. Keep your feet clean and dry “Most people know that keeping your feet clean is important, but drying them well is also vital,” Amy says. Fungal infections, such as tinea pedis (athlete’s foot) are very common, but can be tricky to treat. Drying between your toes is a good preventative measure for fungal problems. 4. Check your feet regularly Your feet take a lot of abuse and, when running, the pressure of up

to four times your body weight goes through them. As a result, Amy advises regular check-ups, particularly for higher risk groups, such as those with diabetes, poor circulation or lack of sensation. 5. See a professional Amy says that is too easy to ignore, or attempt to self-treat, foot problems. “People are in the habit of seeing dentists and opticians, but people often come to us, only when their problems are more advanced, which can make treatments less effective, so getting professional diagnosis and advice is the key. For basic footcare, nail cutting, involuted and ingrowing toenails, nail and skin infections, aches and pains, biomechanical issues, and diabetic footcare, contact us for an appointment.

Health

Brains Love Junk Foods We know that junk foods are bad for our health, so why do we eat them?

like eating a whole box of chocolates or a whole pizza, instead of cooking a healthy meal.

Our brains are hard-wired to make you want to engage in behaviours which you find pleasurable like eating tasty foods, having sex and socialising. These are all vital for the survival of our species. So, when you eat tasty junk foods, your brain’s reward system is activated and releases a brain chemical, a neurotransmitter called dopamine. When we feel the sensation of a dopamine rush, it gives us that good feeling of pleasure and satisfaction. When eating lots of rewarding foods, our brain adapts by making more receptors for the dopamine.

“HOOKED” on junk foods

So when we make more dopamine receptors, we need to eat more of the rewarding junk foods to get the same ‘good’ feeling, similar to how addicts can develop a tolerance to drugs, alcohol or smoking. The brain wants us to eat tasty foods and then it wants more, and more! Satisfaction becomes harder and harder to achieve. “Junk foods make us impulsive” Our attention is drawn towards what feels good, and, in a world full of junk foods, it can be difficult to resist temptation. Dopamine keeps us in a never-ending cycle of eating junk foods which have little or no nutritional benefits. In our brain we have a decision-making centre which is called the prefrontal cortex, which controls our behaviour. Eating excess junk foods can damage prefrontal cortex function which then leads to impulsive behaviours and poor decision-making,

Combating these temptations is difficult when faced with the strategic placement of treats by supermarket checkouts, chocolate muffins in your local coffee shop, or bold adverts for fast food. All of these trigger us to want these foods and they can be hard to resist. Supermarkets are specialists at making us make impulsive choices and so we get “hooked”. Junk foods can weaken our memory, as the high levels of refined sugars and the wrong saturated fats in junk foods create a state of inflammation in the brain that damages brain cells. The brain’s memory centre, called the hippocampus, struggles with remembering new information. Cells (neurons) in the hippocampus form connections that are constantly being reorganised, the process called neuroplasticity. This helps us learn and form memories in response to the endless flood of information in our vibrant world. Junk food reduces vital brain chemicals required for neuroplasticity, weakening memory. “Junk food can affect brain function” The good news is that Solution Focused Hypnotherapy can help take control over the junk food urges, allowing you to make modifications to your lifestyle, reducing the negative effects in your body and mind.

The Galletly Practice – Extension Complete, New Faces and Extended Access

We are pleased to announce that our premises expansion programme was completed on January 21st, when we took possession of an additional ten clinical rooms and our state-of-the-art operating theatre. This expansion provides capacity for an additional 15,000 patients within Bourne, and therefore secures the healthcare needs for future residents of the town. This month we will commence a short programme of refurbishment for our eleven remaining clinical rooms, so that all consulting and treatment rooms are of the highest standard. This programme will be completed by the end of June and we would like to apologise for any inconvenience this may cause. Please be assured that there will be no disruption to our services during this time. Of course, with all this expansion we are aware that we also promised additional healthcare professionals. Again, we are delighted to announce that we have recruited three additional GPs, two nurses and one healthcare assistant. Dr. C Manners and Dr. A Mickleburgh joined our team on March 1st, with Dr. D Margaritescu starting with us on May 1st, bringing to nine our complement of GPs. Sisters C. Klay and M. Morgan have joined our nursing team, increasing our complement to two advanced nurse practitioners, five practice nurses and, with Mrs T Davies joining our team, we now have three healthcare assistants.

We commenced our ‘extended access’ service on October 1st, which offers appointments for all patients, irrespective of where an individual is registered. This service runs from Monday to Friday, 6.30pm to 8pm. We are currently finalising discussions which will see our service expanding to include Saturdays and,

a p r il 2 0 1 9


in partnership with other practices, a Sunday and Bank Holiday service too. We will announce further information, once details have been finalised. If these extended access appointments suit your needs, then ask for their availability via your registered practice or see our website (www.galletly.uk) for further details.

As a Practice we are very much aware of how precious time can be for our patients with busy and demanding lives. We are therefore always seeking new ways in which you may access our services. As such, we are now developing systems to allow our patients to contact the Practice via e-mail to ask for advice and guidance, and we plan for this service to go live this month. Additionally, we are looking to start trialling video consultations via Skype for business through the secure/encrypted NHS network. We hope that this will assist our patients where you feel a direct face-to-face appointment does not best meet your needs.

Deep-In-Aesthetics for the Latest in Aesthetic Enhancements within this, medical history is looked at and all options are discussed in complete confidence. There is also a cooling-off period, where the client can go away and think about the options discussed, and this will allow them to make a measured and informed decision. This sets his practice apart from “BOTOX parties”, where rash decisions can often be made en-masse.

Popular Market Deeping pharmacist and well-known member of the local community, Alistair Graham, recently decided to switch careers. He set up a beauty firm, offering the latest in aesthetic enhancements, realising that there is now a trend across all walks of life and age groups that makes people think that they need some aesthetic help. Alistair trained at Harley Street to carry out a number of procedures, which include lip enhancements, anti-wrinkle treatments and dermal fillers. The latter involves injections that fill out wrinkles, creases and frown-lines and also lines around the mouth, which deepen with age. A full, free consultation will be carried out by Alistair before any treatment is booked and

Holidays in the U.K. – Luxury at Home!

Clare Lockett

Travel Counsellor

Luxury can be found in many resorts around the world, from Abu Dhabi to the Seychelles, from Venice to New South Wales. However, it’s a myth that you have to head overseas to experience a genuinely luxurious holiday because there’s a wealth of high-end experiences right here in the UK that can rival some of the very best on the planet. Spa Experience If anywhere could be considered the spa capital of Britain, it’s got to be Bath. The city is blessed with many high-end hotel spas like Woolley Grange, Lucknam Park and The Royal Crescent, which was named World’s Best Country House Hotel Spa at the 2018 World Spa Awards. This time though, we’re focussing on The Gainsborough Bath Spa – the AA’s Hotel of the Year for England in 2017/2018. This luxury hotel, in the heart of Bath, features customfurnished accommodation from the award-winning Champalimaud Design, with rooms and suites boasting five-star amenities like luxurious bedding, generous wardrobes, full blackout window coverings, a flat screen HD television, Bluetooth radio and radiant heated bathroom floors. Set beneath a glass atrium within the hotel is Spa Village Bath, which adopts a contemporary perspective on the city’s thermal water heritage. It blends the UK’s historic use of aromatherapy with a Malaysian influence to honour the region’s healing traditions. Guests at the Bath House are invited to visit a circuit of natural thermal pools, saunas, a steam room and an ice alcove, as well as indulge in aquatic body therapies and classic skin care treatments that focus on personalised aromatherapy.

well-maintained, private woodland grounds on a hilltop overlooking Lake Windermere. Guests at this contemporary country house hotel are well placed to explore the scenic surroundings with Keswick and Ambleside a short drive away. Within Linthwaite House’s beautiful grounds, there’s more than enough to keep guests busy. Dabble in a game of boules or giant outdoor chess, take a stroll along the many fauna and flora-blessed walking trails, or hop on a bicycle and explore the village of Bowness-on-Windermere. Train Journey on The Northern Belle Further evidence that a domestic luxury getaway needn’t occur in a single spot is Northern Belle. This unforgettable rail experience evokes the opulence of 1930s rail travel on a luxurious, intimate train that ventures through glorious countryside en-route to some of Britain’s top destinations. During one of Northern Belle’s specially curated journeys, you can expect exquisitely decorated carriages, lavish fivecourse dinners, effervescent afternoon teas, sumptuous cuisine and liveried stewards ensuring that each journey is as exciting as its destination. Clare Lockett Travel Counsellors provide exceptional customer service, constantly striving to provide the ultimate travel planning experience, tailored to the individual client. They pay special attention to detail, and offer excellent expert knowledge, value for cost and the utmost professional courtesy.

“Don’t Lose Hope” Counselling Centre and Café Comes to Bourne Opening in the old Nat West bank building in Bourne’s Market Place this month is a forwardthinking new venture that aims to improve the wellbeing and mental health of people in the town and the surrounding areas. “Don’t Lose Hope” will operate on two levels. First, it will provide low-cost, accessible counselling for all ages. This, then, will be funded by a fantastic community café, run by volunteers and providing a space for all members of the local community to come together and connect with each other. The café is open to anyone, not just those who

may have problems with their mental health. It can be seen as the means by which funds can be raised for the counselling services on offer. The café will be open from 9am to 5pm, Monday to Saturday, and will also offer an informal listening service. Seven qualified counsellors will work from the centre offering therapy sessions on a payment scale that will mean that those who are on benefits, such as free school meals, income support or job-seekers allowance, will qualify for eight free sessions. Prices for further sessions or for those not receiving benefits will vary, depending on household

income, but will be kept affordable. We would like to thank the army of volunteers and local businesses that have helped make “Don’t Lose Hope” become a reality by providing time and resources. Anyone who would like further information, or to get involved, please e-mail dontlosehopecounselling@ hotmail.com or call 07823 887968.

Young Artists to Brush up their Skills at Inclusive Art School A popular community arts project is to benefit from a £400 South Kesteven District Council grant to allow it to develop young talent – and give them a chance to join in with fun activities. ‘Born to Create’ is an inclusive art school which helps children and young people develop their creative skills and artistic techniques, to provide the community with collaborative art projects. Councillor Helen Powell, who chose the charity for Ward Member Grant support, said: “The projects from ‘Born to Create’ bring communities together using art and children as ambassadors. I was pleased to be able to support their workshops, which involve fun, high quality activities that build self-confidence and skills which can be transferred to outside the classroom. 26

It is a not-for-profit organisation which benefits the wider area in and around Bourne, and is inclusive to all schools in the town and surrounding villages to create art for the community.” The £400 grant will help running costs for young people to create installations and art pieces to be enjoyed and engaged with by everyone. ‘Born to Create’ provides art lessons the children

Community artist Helen Vanherp, who co-ordinates the charity, said: “Nothing gives me greater pleasure than the natural talent that pours out of children when they are introduced to art. It gives them the opportunity to let their imagination run free, bring new ideas to life and learn new skills. This is a continuation of the ‘Rebirth’ project from 2017 and ‘Born to Create 18’, where we collaborated with thousands of children. Both of these projects were showcased at Bourne Town Hall, and we’d love to build on that momentum.” a p r il 2 0 1 9

Community Park Upgrade Thanks to £665 Donation A play area on a rapidly growing estate is set for improvements, thanks to a £665 donation from South Kesteven District Councillor Robert Reid. The money, from his Ward Member Grant fund, will replace grass safety matting with all-weather Fibrefall at the Hexham Avenue play area on Oak Spring Gardens in Bourne. Councillor Reid said: “With the community continuing to grow in this area and many families moving in, there is a real need for somewhere for the youngsters to go and unwind. It’s great for them to get outside in a safe environment and I’m pleased to be able to help a cause which is close to my heart and to support Elsea Park’s continuing growth.”

Elsea Park Community Trust Manager Barry Cook added: “It’s a busy area and the play equipment is bespoke, provided by Taylor Wimpey with our residents in mind. This money will enable us to replace the original matting with a much safer alternative to further protect any children who may fall while they’re on the equipment. Our next major project is the delivery of an artificial grass pitch and pavilion to the north of Oak Spring Gardens. Working closely with Kier Living (who are providing a pavilion, parking, and access road) and with the SKDC Councillor majority of the funding for the Robert Reid with Elsea pitch itself coming from the Football Park Community Trust Foundation, it is hoped the facility will manager Barry Cook. open early in 2020.”

North Stars Do It Again! Family footwear firm, North Shoes, have the world at their feet after scooping their ninth industry ‘Oscar’ in just eight years. The shoe retailers, who have stores in Bourne and Stamford, were named “Ladies Independent Footwear Retailer of the Year” at the 2019 Footwear Industry Awards at Birmingham’s National Conference Centre on Sunday February 17th. The annual awards salute excellence and innovation in the footwear industry and Managing Director, James North said, “We won it in 2013 and it means such a lot to be voted the best by your industry peers and suppliers. I didn’t think we’d win because we’ve had so much success in the eight years of the awards and I didn’t think it possible that we’d do it again – but I’m delighted that our passion for a good fitting service and customer care has been recognised in this way. There were more than three hundred people at the presentation night which was hosted by Canadian comedian, Sean Collins. Best foot forward – James North (centre) proudly displays the award for “Ladies Independent Retailer of the Year”, alongside Footwear Industry Awards host Sean Collins (left) and Robert Perkins, Chief Operating Officer of category sponsors, Hotter Shoes. a p r il 2 0 1 9


The Potting Shed Although April is a lean month for fresh vegetables, it is a good month to get ahead by sowing seeds indoors or outside in cold frames and under cloches. If you covered your plot over the winter months, the soil may well be warm enough to plant and sow certain crops directly outdoors. The weather should be warming up now, but don’t get caught out by the night frosts; Easters in the past have often been colder than Christmas! A more useful job this month is to prepare seed beds, ready for sowing. If you forgot to manure in the autumn, you can still add really well-rotted manure or compost, but dig in thoroughly. Soil should be broken down into small, even particles; stones and woody material removed, raking the soil over until you get a fine “tilth”: don’t rake when the soil is too wet. If you are sowing, remember - if the soil is dry, water the base of the drill generously before sowing; if wet, sprinkle a thin layer of sand before sowing. You can sow several seeds indoors; chillies, peppers, celery, courgettes and summer squashes, runner and French beans, sprouting broccoli, Florence fennel, courgettes and summer squashes and sweetcorn are just a few. Other jobs: • Earth-up early potatoes. • Plant second early and main crop potatoes. • Last chance to plant onion sets, and sow aubergines and tomatoes indoors for transplanting out. • Most root crops can be sown now; it is probably your last chance to sow parsnips. • Sow sweetcorn - an interesting way of germinating

sweetcorn is by pre-chitting: - lay the seeds on a layer of damp kitchen paper then place a layer of paper over in an airtight box. Check daily and when a small white sprout appears, plant the seed about half to an inch deep in potting compost. • Plant asparagus crowns by the end of the month. • Sow the following outdoors but under cover; beetroot, cucumbers, lettuces, turnips, oriental leaves, leeks, cabbage and salad leaves.They can be sown in pots, modules or prepared seed beds from which you can transplant them. If you do grow any seedlings in trays or modules and they have grown a couple of “true leaves”, prick them out and move to individual pots or larger modules. You can also harden off young plants by putting them outdoors on sunny days, but bring them back in at night or put them in a cold frame or under cloches. • Don’t forget to regularly hand weed or hoe around seedlings as the weeds appear, as they create a lot of competition for food and moisture. • Make sure that fruit trees, canes and bushes are kept watered as any fruit planted in the last 18 months is susceptible to drought damage. Adding mulch around the base will help. • Sow maincrop peas and make the last sowing of summer broad beans. • Put up pea sticks and build cane supports ready for climbing beans while the ground is still soft.

Happy Gardening!

Your Finances

Will You Make the Right Pension Choice? by Adrian Hallas DipPFS, Independent Financial Adviser

I

n April 2015, the government gave you the right to decide how to spend your own pension pot. If I talked you through the legislation, you would be asleep by the end of the first paragraph. So let’s look at a scenario and possible outcomes resulting from different choices. Bob was a divorcee, father of one, in poor health, and who had worked at Acme Construction for twenty-five years until retiring at the age of sixty-five. Two years prior to retirement, Acme gave him a pension forecast of £9,000 per year plus a tax-free lump sum of £60,000. Choice 1: He took the company pension because that’s what all of his colleagues did. He used £40,000 of the tax-free cash to pay off his mortgage and the remainder to supplement his income until his state pension age of sixtyseven. Bob died eighteen months after retirement, having spent only £74,000 of his pension pot worth £330,000. The remaining £256,000 is now in the hands of the pension company. His daughter received no inheritance.

Choice 2: Having been given a transfer value of £330,000, Bob decided to transfer to a ‘personal pension’ so he could flexibly access his fund. He took a tax-free

lump sum of £82,500 and used £40,000 to pay off his mortgage. He spent the remaining tax-free cash on a pioneering treatment that increased his life expectancy. Now acutely aware of his mortality, he paid himself an income of £20,000 per year and enjoyed his retirement until his fund was exhausted at the age of seventy-eight. Surviving on the state pension until he died at the age of eighty-seven was not so enjoyable. His daughter received no inheritance. Choice 3: Bob transferred to a ‘personal pension’ to flexibly access his fund. He took a tax-free

lump sum of £82,500 to pay off his mortgage, purchase a car and supplement his income for two years. He calculated that if his investments made a real return of 2% a year he could take an income of £11,000 per year. If he survived to the age of eighty-seven, there would still be £73,000 in his fund to leave to his daughter. If he died at the age of sixty-six, his daughter would receive £235,000. Would you have been happy with the outcomes of choices 1 and 2? Your pension could be the largest purchase of your lifetime. Make an informed choice.

Legal Corner

Time To Change Our Cohabitation Laws ?

There have been many changes in society in the last century since the time when some, and then all, women could vote. Family Law has similarly moved with the times … but slowly! Under the Matrimonial Causes Act 1973, the concept of “irretrievable breakdown” arrived. In 2004, The Civil Partnership Act allowed same-sex couples to register their relationship and have access to rights and remedies, the same that applied to married couples. In 2013, same-sex couples were finally allowed to marry. There is now a case for “no fault” divorce, especially following the well publicised case which was in the media before Christmas. We await developments as to that, but legislation would have to be agreed. In the case of Owens v Owens, Mrs Owens was denied a divorce and all the remedies available at court for finances. Unfortunately, although married couples do have remedies, those rights are not available for the unmarried.

This can mean that the economically less well-off party may be compromised. It is only where a person can establish clear property rights under the title to a home, including perhaps a separate deed declaring the parties’ interests, that they might be better positioned. Maintenance cannot be claimed except in relation to a child or perhaps the Children Act. As women usually adopt the responsibility for caring for children, (not exclusively

of course), it is they who are discriminated against unless they marry. Married parties also have considerably more allowances to mitigate Inheritance Tax liability. Last year in a study, the number of cohabiting couples had more than doubled between 1996 and 2017 to 3.3 million. Whilst we are waiting for the law to catch up, clients should protect one another in wills and on the property title.

Nigel Bailey Plastering

Plasterer

Thirty-three years as a plasterer, thirty of them as his own boss, travelling far and wide to ply his trade, and now Dyke man, Nigel Bailey admits to wanting to cut down on his travelling if possible. A great deal of his work has been on new builds in the Huntingdon area, but now he would much rather be spending those hours on the A1 doing something more enjoyable, like plastering new builds or extensions, much nearer to home. Nigel is skilled and experienced in all aspects of the plastering trade, be it plaster-boarding, dry lining, internal render and set or external rendering. He is happy to take on all insurance work and offers free advice and estimates, on whatever the customer is wanting to have done. No job is too small, so why not get in touch, and spare him from those dreadful hours up and down the A1?

As OAPs Set to Rise to 1 in 3 of Bourne’s Population by 2037 – Where Are They All Going to Live? Over the next 18 years, the over-65 population in Bourne will grow by 40.9% - a lot more than the overall growth population of Bourne of 12.4% over the same time frame. Looking at Bourne and the local authority as a whole, there is a distinct under-supply of bungalows and retirement living (i.e. sheltered) accommodation. The majority of sheltered accommodation fit for retirement is in the ex-local authority sector, whilst the majority of private sector bungalows were built in the 1960s/70s/80s and are beginning to show their age (although that means there is often an opportunity for Bourne investors and Bourne ‘buy to let’ landlords to buy a tired bungalow, do it up and flip it/ rent it out). In the medium to longer term, we need to build more bungalows and sheltered accommodation and, if we do that, that won’t only be of benefit to the elderly population

of Bourne – it will have a direct knock-on effect to the younger and middle-aged population by unlocking those family homes in which the older generation homeowners live.

Garry Robinson โ€“ Property Maintenance Bourne man, Garry Robinson made an important career decision after eighteen years in industry in Peterborough. During those years, he had always enjoyed doing a number of jobs for friends and family, a patio laid here and a fence replaced there. So, taking the plunge in 2015, Garry set up on his own, offering the public a wide range of services, both indoors, (decorating, tiling, carpentry and plumbing for example), and outside the home. The latter has recently involved replacing roof tiles and flashing on a chimney stack. Recent projects have seen Garry working in Spalding, Stamford, Peterborough and several villages in between. Gardens are where Garry can create something really special for his customers, be it a new patio, gazebo, pergola or a fence. He can also work on hedges and trees, so why not contact him to see how he could transform your property?

Windows 10

April 2019 Update

Microsoft’s next big Windows 10 feature update is about ready to launch in the next few weeks. Codenamed “19H1” and probably annotated as v1904, this release brings with it very few new features but, allegedly, many improvements. Effectively though, this is a maintenance update focussed on existing features and improving security and usability. The current list of changes include: • A new ‘Light’ theme for the desktop.

versions and will implement itself far more successfully, given that Windows 10 is now a mature product. When will this happen? No confirmation of date yet but it should be sometime in April. As with previous updates, it can take months to fully roll out to users so don’t be surprised if you are still on the previous, well into the summer. As with previous updates this is a mandatory update. A fond farewell

• Cortana and Search are now separate. • Improvements to the start menu usability. • A Windows Sandbox (a safe environment for testing applications) is now included.

In May 2019 I reach the grand old age of sixty – how did that happen?! Whilst I am not retiring, I am going to partially retire and so this is the last article that I will be publishing in Discovering Magazines. My thanks to everyone who has expressed

how much they have enjoyed my articles since I penned the first one back in January 2012, and to Claire and all at Discovering Magazines for their support over the years. I will still be running LITES PC and will be around for support requests, but will be taking a shorter work week and starting to slow down a shade work-wise. Good luck with your home IT and take care.

• Updates can now be paused. • Improved error messages with more explanation. So nothing to be overly concerned about for most users, but the track record of these Windows 10 mandatory updates has been poor to date, with each roll out, scheduled for twice a year, leading to problems for many users. Hopefully, this update will not suffer the issues of previous IT ITSupport Supportand andTraining for Home Training forComputer Home Users and Small Computer Users and SmallBusinesses Businesses 01476 550604 01778 590632 07894 07894659479 659479 www.litespc.co.uk www.litespc.co.uk info@litespc.co.uk info@litespc.co.uk 40

The history of the club which goes back to 1953 shows many successes at County and National levels.

This has helped to generate more interest and more people are playing bowls at all levels. Once bitten by the bowling bug you find most people play bowls for life.

History

Discovering . . . The Ostler memorial

Rex Needle

O

ne of the most imposing of our historic monuments is now hidden away for safe keeping in the town cemetery, a grand memorial originally erected in the market place at Bourne to remember John Lely Ostler, a wealthy businessman who served this town well 150 years ago. The unveiling of this magnificent drinking fountain financed by public subscription was one of the biggest public occasions ever observed and took place during the autumn of 1860, the only example of a freestanding memorial erected in this town outside the churchyard. Ostler was born in 1811 of a distinguished family from Grantham and trained as a lawyer but soon became one of the biggest land and property owners in Bourne and was principal shareholder of the Bourne and Essendine Railway Company. He died on Monday 27th June 1859 by which time he was a very rich man and his many holdings included commercial premises along the banks of the Bourne Eau in Eastgate, the Maltings in West Street as well as extensive land interests at Dyke and Cawthorpe. The direct connection of John Ostler with Bourne was therefore a very short one yet during this period he achieved a reputation for his charitable acts and philanthropy, the welfare of the poor, the building of

Bourne

a school at Dyke in 1854, the donation of land for the Eastgate school in 1856 and the provision of a site for the Bourne Waterworks Company, a connection which was to be pivotal in the choice of his memorial, a drinking fountain standing 18ft 6in high on three steps of Yorkshire stone while the main monument was built from Portland stone with shafts of red polished Aberdeen granite and a continuous stream of water falling into an ornamental basin. This marvellous example of Victorian Gothic stood in the market place for 100 years but by the mid-20th century, the horse had given way to the motor car and the memorial was in danger of impeding traffic flows. It was struck several times by passing vehicles and Bourne Urban District Council decided that in the interests of road safety, it should go elsewhere and in 1960 workmen dismantled the structure stone by stone and moved it to its present location in the South Road cemetery. The fountain was listed Grade II in July 2007 and the town council subsequently initiated a ÂŁ9,000 restoration scheme to ensure that this monument to one of our most illustrious benefactors will be preserved for the future. If you have never seen it, then it is worth a visit to the cemetery to take a look. Photograph of the Ostler memorial in the town cemetery taken by Rex Needle in 2007. a p r il 2 0 1 9

School News Bourne Westfield and SaJoNi School, India – A Promise for the Future Children from Bourne Westfield are using a link with a school in India to expand their knowledge and understanding about life in another continent. The cultural partnership was initiated when both schools were looking for ways to give their children authentic learning opportunities, which they could actively develop, and a fun way to explore what it means to be a child living in another part of the world. Naresh Raghavan, a STEM ambassador and the programme architect said, ‘This programme is aimed at providing a direct interactive environment with world cultures of interest and allow young minds to experience, explore and interact with their peers on the other side, in a safe and secure manner.’ The project started in October 2018 when teachers from both schools met over Skype to discuss their hopes and plans for the project, and both schools decided to exchange a box of items which would give the children more information about their respective schools. The children from Bourne Westfield worked hard to collect examples of plant life, school uniform, curriculum details, school certificates and awards, book bags and journals amongst other things, and also wrote letters to the children in India. In turn, children from SaJoNi India sent a wide range of articles, including hand craft materials, their school uniform, the school menu, a

tour guide of the school campus, a list of birds and animals that children see every day and letters from children. Mr V.Ganesan, the Academic Advisor of SaJoNi, said, ‘Our children were quite excited to see their counterparts across the globe during the meeting and the parcel to them was just a new beginning for their intellectual connection between two schools on a longer run in the years to come.’ The children eagerly awaited the arrival of the box from India and each school shared the opening of the contents during a Skype call where the children came face to face with each other for the first time. Rebecca Beavis, Bourne Westfield’s Arts Director said, ‘This was a very magical first meeting. The children were able to see each other’s first reactions to the contents of the boxes and then ask questions. They all came away from the meeting full of enthusiasm and very excited.’ One of the children from SaJoNi school in India said, ‘It’s not quite often we get to know friends like this. Thanks SaJoNi and BWPA team.’ Since this initial exchange and Skype call, both schools have exchanged Christmas cards. Teams from the schools are now busy working on plans to develop the exchange further.

Bourne Westfield Takes to the Stage On Saturday March 9th, fifty-seven talented musicians from Bourne Westfield travelled to Boston to take part in the ‘Music for Youth’ regional festival. Both the choir and the rock band performed alongside schools and colleges from across the county to a packed auditorium which included music industry judges. Both groups were given positive and encouraging feedback from the panel, who noted the choir’s “very professional presentation, and well-rehearsed performance”, along with the rock band’s “strong 58

rhythmic playing and teamwork”. Arts Director, Rebecca Beavis, said, “The children were amazing and both groups gave strong performances. The event was a great opportunity for children from across the county to share their music, and receive valuable feedback; we all thoroughly enjoyed the day.” a p r il 2 0 1 9

Churches Together in Bourne Organise Their Third Family Fun Day For the past two years, the Churches Together in Bourne committee have organised a Family Fun Day on the Recreation Ground. Last year, over three hundred people attended which was fantastic and, for our third year, we are hopeful that it will be even more! Our thanks go out to all who support these events including South Kesteven District Council, The Len Pick Trust, Bourne Tesco and, of course, everyone who came along! Back by popular demand, we will have the burgers and sausages freshly cooked from the barbecue and the Salvation Army’s emergency vehicle will also be available for teas and coffees - with the cake stall just next door! During the afternoon, there will be the opportunity to listen to musical performances and watch the ‘Open the Book team’ as they bring the message of Jesus to us with a dramatisation of one of the wellknown Bible stories. The bouncy castle will also be back - as well as the face painting, glitter tattoos, giant floor games and colouring for children to enjoy throughout the afternoon. Come and join us for a day full of fun on Saturday May 25th, 12 noon till 3pm – and don’t forget there is no charge for this event!

Universal Credit – Still Work to be Done Some research carried out nationally by Citizens Advice shows that improvements have been made in the administration of Universal Credit, but more changes are still needed. Over the past two years, various changes were made to the way Universal Credit payments were made, such as cutting the waiting time by a week, and providing bigger advance payments, which have benefitted clients. However, Citizens Advice research shows that half of the people they helped still had to borrow from friends and family, or fell behind on bills. Universal Credit is paid monthly, but many who work or claimed the old legacy benefits were used to getting paid more often, and the change creates budgeting challenges.Too few people have access to the different ways of being paid, like getting payments twice a month. Only 14% of the people helped nationally over the last year knew that more frequent payments were possible, although 80% of those who weren’t told about it would have taken the option if they had known. Of the thousands of people who visit Citizens Advice nationally, it was found that people claiming Universal Credit have just £2 left over each month after paying for essentials, (rent and food), compared to £12 for people who claim the “legacy benefits” that it replaces. People often claim Universal Credit because something disruptive is happening in their life, like losing a job or ending a relationship. This can create huge financial pressures, and Citizens Advice knows that many people don’t have savings, so quick access to financial support is needed. People who have been helped often struggle financially, well beyond the first few weeks of being on Universal Credit.

Website Showcases Bourne CiCLE Festival A new website has been launched for Bourne’s first CiCLE Festival, later this year - www. bourneciclefestival.com. As activity builds towards the festival, organised by South Kesteven District Council, the website has details on the four major cycling events taking place over the weekend, (August 31st – September 1st) - men’s and women’s elite races, a time trial and an amateur riders’ sportive.

with a picturesque traffic-free circuit within the Grimsthorpe Estate likely to prove a real highlight. The festival promises to be an exciting weekend of cycling fun with BMX bikes, skateboarding, vintage cycling, refreshments and entertainment, organised as part of visitor economy activity within “InvestSK”, (South Kesteven District Council’s economic growth and regeneration company.)

Communities along the route have the opportunity to arrange events to celebrate the race, such as a village barbecue, race bunting, and painted, or even knitted, cycles along the route. Most of the UK’s professional teams have indicated an interest in participating, with entries opening on April 5th. Local cycling club, Bourne Wheelers, is managing the Saturday morning sportive with a choice of three distances - 54 miles, 69 miles and 86 miles. It is the chance to follow some of the routes that the 1/2 Page A5 ad.qxp_Layout 1 09/02/2019 12:58 Page 1 elite women’s and men’s road races will follow,

Pets and Vets

Easter Bunnies Easter has become a time when parents often buy rabbits for their children as pets. However, rabbits are not easy pets and, for young children, may be completely unsuitable. Many buy dwarf rabbits in the belief they are easier to handle, but these are often much faster and bouncier than expected. Larger rabbits such as Lionheads and Lop-eared rabbits are usually more docile, though heavier to handle. Giant rabbits are a recent phenomenon and really are for specialised owners as they have greater housing and health needs. Rabbits need a large shed with a run attached. A small hutch with a miserable bed section and open fronted area is far too small. Even those with two tiers do not cater for a rabbit’s needs although it does allow them to have a separate toilet area – rabbits are hygienic animals. Rabbits need plenty of space to run around, stretch, jump and behave as rabbits do. In open runs, place tubes and boxes for them to jump over and hide in. Rabbits also need company and you should never buy just one; pairs of rabbits are best. Just do make sure you know which sexes you are buying, as many owners have come a cropper when they’ve bought two rabbits

By Deirdre Slater

and one morning there are suddenly six in the cage! Sexing young rabbits can be very difficult though, so if you are unsure of what you have, bring them to the surgery for a second set of eyes. If you are keeping one of each sex, then at least have the male neutered, for obvious reasons! Rabbit obesity is becoming a real problem in this country as many assume the normal shape of rabbit is like Peter Rabbit. Rabbits should be lean to be healthy, so NO MORE than an egg cupful of pelleted food a day. Think of this as a treat rather than the main food. Unlimited, good quality hay not only keeps a rabbit’s guts healthy, it is important in maintaining good dentition. Rabbits’ teeth grow all the time and they are designed to constantly grind down hay and grass to stay the proper shape and angle. Never give grass clippings though, as they ferment in the guts. Vegetables and herbs such as broccoli, spring greens, dandelions and parsley are delicious for rabbits. And of course, fresh clean water every day. Remember to vaccinate your rabbit against myxomatosis and rabbit haemorrhagic disease to protect them in the coming months.

Mayor These events give us the ability to ‘spread the Bourne word’ and hopefully encourage visitors to our town.

Words from the Mayor David Mapp

Up until last year I have, along with most I think, watched our achievements in sport, standing proudly as our National Anthem is played, singing loudly with our winners, without any real knowledge of the content of the second verse. During my term as Mayor and through the numerous Civic Services attended, this verse has become significant, mainly because I have had to attempt to learn it. Standing with the congregation, some in tune, everyone with head held high singing the anthem’s first verse, then, in contrast, noting the change as the introduction to the second begins. At that point, heads drop and the fumbling starts, as “Orders of Service “ are rustled in the hope of finding the wording, unknown to most of us. Are we the only nation that does not know its full anthem? Spring events gather momentum. Christine and I travelled to a dinner at Melton Mowbray as the only attendees from “the east” and, amongst others, a trip “up north” to Market Rasen on a windy Sunday. Blimey, it’s cold “up north”!

YOUR COUNCIL MATTERS • With regard to recent local press articles and developer consultation on plans to develop 110 homes at Beaufort Drive, our District Council, SKDC, has delegated its site allocation process to the Town Council and neighbourhood team, who are currently undertaking a review of all possible sites. This process is necessary in order to meet the Government’s and SKDC’s requirement for an additional two hundred homes to be found in Bourne, over and above those already consented to. Once the exercise is completed, any recommendations will be put to the full Council and the town for consideration. • If you are interested in becoming a Councillor at May’s election, please contact the Council on 01778 426123 or e-mail clerk.bournetc@btconnect.com. for details. • If you know of any individual or group that have made a beneficial contribution to the local community, in whatever form, and deserve recognition, please contact the Town Clerk, Ian Sismey, as above. Finally, just a thought: Returning to churches and singing, is it now perhaps wrong to refer to “Hymns”? Maybe, for the sake of political correctness, we should refer to “Hers”. Again, and to be as inclusive as possible, should we not now be referring to “Hymns and Hers”?

DIRECTorY Business FEATURE OF THE MONTH...

Figures shown are for comparability purposes; only compare fuel consumption and CO2 figures with other vehicles tested to the same technical procedures. These figures may not reflect real life driving results, which will depend upon a number of factors including the accessories fitted (post-registration), variations in weather, driving styles and vehicle load. There is a new test used for fuel consumption and CO2 figures (known as WLTP). The CO2 figures shown however, are based on a calculation designed to be equivalent to the outgoing (NEDC) test cycle and will be used to calculate vehicle tax on first registration. For more information, please see www.volkswagen.co.uk/owners/wltp or consult your retailer. Data correct at 03/2019. Figures quoted are for a range of configurations and are subject to change due to ongoing approvals/changes. Please consult your retailer for further information. Official fuel consumption figures for the Polo model range in mpg (litres/100km): Combined 44.8 (6.3) – 57.6 (4.9). Combined CO2 emissions 97 – 110 g/km.
