Introduction

Welcome to Your December Issue. What did Adam say to his wife on the day before Christmas? “It’s Christmas, Eve!” How come I’ve reached the age I am and have never heard this one before? Anyway, another Christmas fast approaching and our team of contributors continue to ensure that your favourite magazine is full of interesting features, advice and information to make your lead-up to the big day as enjoyable as possible. Thanks to them all and, on behalf of us all on the magazine, let me wish you the very best for a merry and peaceful Christmas, with a healthy and successful 2019 to follow. Don’t forget to have a go at our Novelty Hunt competition on page 31. Just think how £50 would surely help make it a “Happy New Year”!

“What’s December’s issue looking like?” I hear you ask. As usual, wide-ranging and varied, with some serious events to read about this month, as we all commemorated the centenary of the ending of World War 1. Our usual advice providers, (covering aspects of health, the law, finance, pets, holidays and protection against rogue traders), continue to inform wisely, for which we thank them. With the small matter of Christmas only a few weeks away, the quiz takes on a festive look, whilst old chestnuts (sorry!) come out for their annual airing: What do you get if you eat Christmas decorations? Tinselitis. What do you call a lobster who won’t share any of his presents? Shellfish. Marks & Spencer say it wouldn’t be Christmas without M&S. They’re right – it’d be “Chrita”. I wish you all a very happy and peaceful Christmas, with good health and success on the way in 2019. Enjoy the read!

Eat the Season

mulled wine This festive favourite is easy to prepare and tastes like Christmas in a glass!

Method Ingredients Serves 6-8 people 2 bottles of inexpensive red wine 100g soft, light brown sugar 3 oranges, cut into 6 wedges 3 lemons, cut into 6 wedges 500ml orange juice 4 tsp whole cloves 2 tsp mixed spice 8 tea bags 2 whole cinnamon sticks 150g semi-dried prunes

• Place all the ingredients into a large saucepan (not aluminium) and gently heat, stirring occasionally so the sugar does not stick. • You’ll need 10 minutes preparation time, followed by 20 minutes cooking time. • Do not boil, or the mulled wine will lose its kick, as the alcohol evaporates! • Using a ladle, carefully pour the wine into sturdy glasses. Include a wedge or two of fruit, and a prune, in each glass.

Top Tips • You can give extra spice to the drink by adding a little extra sugar and a dash or two of brandy. • A white wine version is also an option, if your guests are not red wine lovers.

Seasonal Delights with Amy at Vine House Farm Warming winter vegetables such as squashes & sprouts are still in abundance, as are apples, pears & juicy oranges - delicious in baked desserts. Game will be on the menu for two more months, so now is the perfect opportunity to give it a try if you haven’t before. It may be a way off for the glut of Spring’s seasonal delights, but winter’s offerings are plentiful enough. ENJOY.... LEEKS Packed with anti-oxidants and vitamins, the mighty leek can help stave off winter colds. It’s also the perfect partner to potatoes and cheese, for deeply satisfying side dishes and suppers. For something a little different, try sautéing with bacon & top with chopped walnuts & pear.

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

T

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

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

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

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

What is a Gym? (or more importantly) - What is Empire Gym? by Matt Weston

Even now, almost five years into our quest to change the very meaning of what it is to be a gym, people, who live locally, still walk in and ask what we are about. People still ask… Is it a place to which I could belong? Is it all men? What is the atmosphere like? Will I be able to get on equipment? They assert … I don’t really like gyms because I went to this big chain gym and nobody spoke to me; Other gyms are untidy and smell funny and the staff don’t acknowledge me; The equipment doesn’t work and isn’t serviced. Then I will talk to them. Initially, not about exercise, but about what we stand for. Making sure you feel known, and that you feel comfortable, initially just doing something you enjoy. Making sure that you feel at home, enough to realise that the secret to Empire is that we make the conditions for your progress and happiness right. We show you that actually, you can come here and do whatever you like. You have nothing to prove to me, the other members or society in general. You just need to be happy, even if that means spending fifteen minutes walking on a treadmill four times a week and going home. Your journey is your own. And once you are exposed to the Empire effect for long enough, conditions will create a ‘pull’ from you to want to know more - to want to expand your experience. I then tell people that we will perform a gym induction, if you would like one, to make sure you have somewhere to start, and that you do it safely. But in fact you should watch our other members. Talk, listen, learn, copy. Indeed they will probably learn something from you too. And amongst a membership of over six hundred people who create a tapestry of personality, there are those who punctuate the very meaning of what it means to be here. Charlotte Pennells. A mum suffering after complications

in childbirth who is currently in a wheelchair. We together are aiming to have her completing High Intensity Circuits next year. And she will do it. She trains in and out of her chair at Empire. Steve Marsh. Another training in his chair, as he is a T6 Complete paraplegic after a mountain biking accident. Empire members raised £750 for Steve back when he suffered his injuries in 2016. Steve is now in the gym training. Tom Neale, who suffers with, but defies, Cerebral Palsy and completes weekly PT sessions with my brother Dave. Stuart Zwetsloot. A brilliant young man with Downs Syndrome who is indeed part of the Empire furniture. He trains in the gym every day and has Personal Training every Friday. Of course … Cassidy Little. One leg, but the world’s biggest personality. Former Royal Marine Commando, Winner of the People’s Strictly Come Dancing and Coronation Street actor. A Sunday Circuit regular. Jenny Locke. 77 years old with Parkinson’s Disease. In the gym like clockwork every day at 10am. Rowing, walking, biking. Determined and happy and improving her symptoms. Remember too that amongst this great community of exercisers there are people battling mental obstacles too. Some of these people we know of and quietly offer a word of support and encouragement when the time is right. Others I’m sure have never spoken of their battles but find solace in the Empire family atmosphere. It is an inspirational and safe haven. So the picture builds. Empire is unique, quite special in fact. Only those who are here to experience it will truly know.

Health age. Then the same discount is given to students, people who work in the NHS, police and fire service and of course for those in the armed forces, either serving or veterans. Perkins / Caterpillar employees also receive a concessionary rate. Those who are 16-19 years old then have their own discounted rate of £29.99 as we want to encourage youth to experience the value of exercise. Additional joint membership discounts are given too, to encourage families to train together. We offer what we consider to be real and genuine quality and value for money. I guess much of this was brought to mind again on seeing recent news of the plans for a new leisure facility in the Deepings in the next few years. I applaud this and hope the facility is everything the Deepings community deserves. As yet, nobody has asked our opinion about it in terms of planners and organisers, but let me put on record... Empire Gym would love to be the company that helps, consults or indeed provides the ‘gym and classes’ arm of any such facility. We know the community. We know how to do it. And we do it well. If you take the less emotive facts and put them forward to support the qualitative qualities of Empire, the case becomes even more compelling. Over 50% female membership.

Nowhere is more welcoming. Nowhere has a more diverse and inclusive environment. Nowhere is cleaner. And nobody matches our customer service levels.

Nearly 70 classes a month free with membership. Members from 16 to 86 years old. And we have raised £12,000 for Charity in the last year. Yet… what do you think is often the very first question asked? “How much is your membership?” And then, ok I’ll have a look down the road first. I can understand this. It is however frustrating. £39.99 a month is the standard rate. So about £1 a day for all of the things described so far, discounted to £34.99 for those of concessionary

‘The Deepings Fitness and Wellbeing Business of the Year’ winners, two years in a row. We have invested money, heart and soul into the community over this time. Our phone lines are open. Our emails are available. The coffee machine is ready. So to those making decisions in councils at local and county level, let’s talk, as Empire is all about community and nobody will match our passion for what we do. Your invitation is there for all to see.

Your Health

by Nicole Woodcock, Hummingbird Hypnotherapy

New Year Ahead - Hummingbird Can Help With Those Resolutions A new year brings with it thoughts of new beginnings – a new start with a new year. You may have already decided what it may be … weight loss, healthy eating, a new family goal. Having a goal is great and wanting to achieve it is wonderful. But what if you can’t? What if you have every intention just before you go to bed, but you wake up, press snooze and think “Sod It”? Many people give up New Year’s resolutions within the first two weeks, but why? The goal could be too big; something interferes with the time you set aside to go to the gym; lack of preparation;

have done that work-out or prepared that healthy meal, be proud of it. Congratulate yourself. Then write it down that you did it and that you own it.

and very soon one day missed leads to a week missed and you’re back into the same routine. Believe it or not, our brain loves routine, but consistency is the key. Being able to plan something that is still achievable on a busy day. Taking things one day at a time, but also visualising yourself doing it. Pop your gym shoes by the door as a reminder, keep your gym kit in the car, wake up and plan the day so you know you can do it. Once you

If you really want to make a change in 2019 and you need a hand, then get in touch. Hypnotherapy can give you the confidence, to give you the boost to get into the gym. Hypnotherapy can support you in your weight management plan and assist you in overcoming anxiety that stops you doing all of those things you want to do. I wish you all a wonderful Christmas and a huge thank you to all of you who have supported Hummingbird Hypnotherapy this year. Have a truly positive new year!

Your Garden

DECEMBER Gardening Tips Well, we are already in December and coming up to the shortest day, which means that we are on our way to the next season. However, over the next two to three months we tend to see some of the worst weather; however, there are always jobs that can be done in the garden or allotment. Some gardeners put their allotment or vegetable patch “to bed” for the winter by covering the ground in plastic sheeting, or weed suppressant to keep weeds at bay: it also keeps the ground a little warmer for early spring planting and prevents heavy rain from washing away the soil’s nutrients. Before putting the covering down, it is worth digging the plot well and adding plenty of well-rotted organic material. There are one or two crops that you can still plant, such as garlic (if the soil is not frozen or waterlogged); new crowns of rhubarb or existing ones, divided and re-planted; bare-root fruit trees and bushes; and raspberry and blackberry canes. To divide rhubarb, lift the crown and, with a sharp spade, divide it into sections, each with a bud. Re-plant each section, in well-manured ground, with the bud just showing. Some jobs to do this month include: • Continue topping up compost and leaf mould bins. • If you intend to grow peas or beans next year, dig in plenty of organic matter as they require nutrient-rich soil. • Lift the last of your carrots, turnips and beetroot and put a mulch of straw around parsnips to prevent them being frozen into the ground. • As long as the soil is not frozen you can continue winter digging. • Earth up Brussels sprouts stems to keep them secure from strong winds and remove any brown or yellow leaves. • Make sure your winter brassicas are netted to prevent pigeons eating them. • Keep picking leeks and parsnips but, if the weather is very wet, check that the leeks are not getting water-logged and rotting. • December is the ideal time to prune apples and pears, gooseberries and currants. Autumn raspberries can be pruned right back to ground level between now and February.  If you feel the need to do some jobs you can always check over your tools in the shed to make sure that they are safe and fit to use next season. Clean the metal and wipe it over with something like 3 in 1 oil. Clean and wipe down all wooden handles with linseed oil. It not only preserves the wood but makes them more comfortable on the hands. Check for pests and diseases on any produce in store, especially for rat and mouse damage. Have a happy Christmas and a well-earned rest after a good year on the vegetable patch. Here’s to a fruitful 2019! Happy gardening!

Property News

Reasons to Market Your Property Before Christmas by Jonathan Brewell​, Managing Partner, Newton Fallowell

QUESTION: Do people stop looking for a new property over the Christmas period?

to let Christmas deter them if they stumble across the perfect home.

ANSWER: NO!

Typically, there is less choice for buyers with fewer properties on the market before Christmas, so your property will be noticed by more people. By the time everybody else decides to put their property on the market after Christmas, you’ll already have a buyer or at least be well ahead of the game.

Rightmove, the UK’s number one property website has provided us with statistics from the festive period that really suggest sellers can make the Christmas season work for them. On Christmas Day itself, the Rightmove site received over 14 million page views, with over 10,000 people taking a break from slicing the turkey to search for property. On Boxing Day, the site was even busier, with views finally peaking on New Year’s Day at 25 million! The holiday period, with family around and life finally slowing down, is the ideal time for browsing property listings in front of the TV. Serious buyers are unlikely

If you do not want to be disturbed at Christmas-time, Newton Fallowell can prepare and launch your property in time to take advantage of the festive peak in property interest. We will take bookings for viewings to commence on an agreed date of your choice after the celebrations have ended and things return to normal. Get your property on the market before Christmas.

Advice

Consumer Advice

Stay Merry, not Miserable in the Run-Up to Christmas

Consumer Rights With Christmas coming up, many people are looking to buy different presents online, so this month, Citizens Advice suggests that it’s a good idea to check consumer rights first. If you’re buying from an online trader, your rights are the same as if you were buying from any other online store. In other words, you normally have up to fourteen days after receiving your goods to change your mind and get a full refund. If there is a problem with your item within the first thirty days from when you bought it, you could get a refund, replacement or repair. Also, if it can’t be repaired or replaced, then during the first six months, in most cases, you’re entitled to a full refund. If you should have a problem, first contact the seller to try to resolve the issue. Also, check the online marketplace’s terms and conditions. These will sometimes offer you more protections. If the seller arranged delivery, and the item hasn’t turned up, or was delivered to the wrong location, it’s the seller’s legal responsibility to sort out the issue. Some traders belong to an alternative dispute resolution (ADR) scheme, which means they offer a way to solve your problem without going to court. The Citizens Advice Service in Bourne takes place at Wake House, on Thursdays between 10am and 3pm. Clients are offered a five minute initial check, followed by an appointment at a later time or date, if appropriate. In the Deepings, the Service includes  a drop-in fifteen minute assessment at the New Community Centre, Market Deeping, on Wednesday mornings, before an afternoon appointment if needed, or a referral to Deeping St James fortnightly on Thursdays, where the United Churches have funded an outreach at the Institute, on 38 Church Street, Deeping St James.

For opportunist thieves, visible presents under the tree, open car boots full of shopping while loads are being taken into the house, and even the possibility of an unlocked garage are rich pickings which can turn your Christmas from being ‘Merry’ into ‘Miserable’! Equally, flaws in home security while out and about visiting friends and family are a beacon to thieves – so always remember to check your alarm and never leave doors, windows or garages unlocked. Some tips for a safe and happy festive season: • Don’t leave presents in full view – either in the home or on the back seat of the car. • Shorter days mean a longer time for thieves to be in operation – always lock your car and front door when entering your home. • Keep a light on indoors and outdoors if you are out visiting friends or family. • It may be an idea to fit some motion detector security lighting – it won’t just be carol singers who come calling. • Keep your personal data safe – and securely dispose of receipts. • If you are expecting parcels or deliveries whilst you are away from home, try and arrange for them to be delivered to an alternative address instead of them being hidden by the bins! • If buying bikes and / or electronic equipment for Christmas – mark them with your postcode

‘TIS the season to be jolly – but as we prepare for the season of goodwill, not everyone shares the Christmas spirit. With many of us starting the Christmas shopping earlier, there is a fair chance that many of our shop purchases and online orders are beginning to pile up. So, with gifts galore adding to the decorations, tree, food and drink, December is a time when many of us let our guard down, amongst the excitement leading up to the big day.

T H E

Deepings

• If using outdoor festive lighting, ensure cables aren’t passed through windows, leaving enough of a gap for burglars to make use of. • Away over Christmas? – plan ahead. If you’re going away at Christmas, be sure to cancel any newspaper or milk subscriptions. Arrange for a neighbour to park on the driveway to help create the impression someone is home. Do not to leave descriptive telephone answering machine messages like “we’re away skiing for the Christmas holidays”, or post your plans on social media. For any home security improvements, we have locksmiths, alarm and CCTV installers, electricians and many other traders who can help.

William Hildyard Children’s Creative Remembrance This year, to commemorate Remembrance Day, William Hildyard Church of England Primary and Nursery School created a beautiful display of one hundred poppies. Children from across the school were involved

in cutting, drilling and painting the flowers, that were then used as part of their remembrance of all those that have fought and died in wars since The First World War. A special service of Remembrance, led by Kate Brown, Church Leader at St. Guthlac’s Church, was held on Friday November 9th on the school playground to which parents were invited. Mr Fell (Head of School) said, “The children have worked really hard and produced a lovely display. The service was thought-

If you have ever visited our website, you will see that we have set out our goals and standards in our company ‘Mission Statement’: We are driven by traditional values, based on outstanding client service, building long-term relationships, delivering highly qualified advice and essentially, from the first point of contact through to ongoing service, putting our client’s mind at ease. We quite often receive reviews and feedback from our clients which allow us to reflect on this simple statement and below is a recent example of feedback which suggests we are on track: What were the circumstances that caused you to look for an adviser? I have two final-salary pensions, one which had sat for several years and one with a company that I ceased working for years ago. I am not married but live

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

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

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

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

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

Health

Don’t Let Your Workstation Damage Your Health!

M

any day-to-day aches and pains can be attributed to an ill-fitting ‘workstation’. As osteopaths, we see a range of posture-induced problems every day. The way these present varies from person to person, but some familiar symptoms can include: difficulty or stiffness turning your head, which you may first notice perhaps when trying to reverse the car; heavy tired arms with pain around the tip of the shoulder extending towards the elbow; sometimes, poor work postures can end up with you hunching forwards, producing mid back ache and aggravating your lower back too, so you find it harder to get out of the chair and straighten up.

Some Postural-Savvy Tips. Tip 1 - Get ready for the day: Take a moment to think about your work posture and workstation layout. It will take less than a minute – which is nothing compared to the hours you’ll spend sat there. Use a post-it note to remind yourself each day. Tip 2 – Check your posture: • Does the chair’s lumbar support fit the curve of your back? If not, consider an additional ‘slide in’ lumbar support, or try a rolled-up towel placed into the small of your back. These can really prevent you slouching. • Adjust your chair and screen height so that the top of your screen is level with your eyes. • Make sure your feet can be placed flat on the floor. If not, get a footrest. • If your chair has arms, adjust their height so that your elbows and forearms rest upon them lightly. Tip 3 – Organise your desk: • COMPUTER SCREEN - Should be directly in front, with no need to twist your body or neck to look at it. • KEYBOARD - Should be directly in front of you and far enough away to allow most of your forearms onto the desk

too. MOUSE - Should be in easy reach. Keep frequently-used items nearby to avoid repetitive over-reaching. • TELEPHONE - Should be positioned on the same side as your dominant hand to avoid over-reaching. If you use a handset regularly, consider a hands-free kit, and never clutch the phone between your ear and shoulder! Tip 4 – Give yourself a screen break! Try and drag yourself away from the screen for at least five minutes each hour. Find an activity that gets you onto your feet and moving about. Tip 5 – Motion - If you can’t get out-and-about, then try simple stretches whilst sat at your desk. Stretching is a low impact method of exercise which increases blood flow, flexibility, tone and your general performance – it will increase both physical and mental productivity, and reduce those desk-related aches and pains. If any of this sounds familiar and you would like some help towards fixing the problem, or perhaps just more information, please contact the practice and we’ll be happy to help.

Will & Probate Services

National Recognition for Will and Probate Services by Nick Ash, Managing Director

We were delighted to be nominated at this year’s British Wills and Probate Awards. The awards are the Oscars of our industry and saw us up against national names, such as the Co-op Legal Services and Irwin Mitchell Solicitors. We had been entered in three categories and made the final three in one of them.

At a glitzy awards ceremony at Ardencote Hall, near Coventry, Kloë Davis, our Probate Team Leader, and Kate Jacobs, our Development Manager, were on hand to pick up our ‘HighlyCommended’ award, as we came a close second to a national firm of solicitors. To be recognised on a national stage, especially when the recognition came in the wake of being finalists at the National Entrepreneurs’ Awards, is humbling. Our ambition has always been for Will and Probate Services to be one of the best known and most respected legal brands in the country. Speaking at the event, Kloë said, “It was a fantastic night.To be amongst the most influential people in our industry was an affirmation of just how far we have come, and gives me huge confidence in our vision for Will and Probate Services. Coming so close to bringing home the trophies only increases our determination to be there next year and to go one better.” If you would like to speak to Will and Probate Services, a local firm making an impact on a national stage, about any aspect of your planning, give us a call on 01778 382723 and book your initial consultation today.

Enjoy the Festive Christmas Season - But Make Sure You Stay Safe - Don’t Let the Crooks Win! by PC Jacob Human

areas, especially if you’ve got bags or presents in the car.

e’re working hard over Christmas to keep you and your family safe, but there are steps you can take to help us.

• Don’t leave presents under your Christmas tree if they are visible from windows or doors.

Things to remember over the Christmas period: • Stay alert and be aware of what’s going on around you when you’re shopping, especially in busy shops and crowded streets where thieves and pickpockets may well be operating. • Keep valuables in inside pockets of clothing or bags. Keep a close watch on them, and try not to keep them all in one place. If you have to keep presents in the car, make sure they are out of view in the boot, the car is locked, and keep the receipts with you. • Try and avoid taking young children into busy shopping areas. If it is unavoidable, make sure they know what to do if they lose you, for example: tell the nearest counter assistant that they are lost and never leave a shop without you. Agree a meeting point with older children, in case you get separated. • Keep car doors locked whilst driving in built-up

• Make your house look occupied; use a timer switch to operate lamps as it starts to get dark, and leave a radio on. • Don’t open the door to anybody you don’t recognise. Not sure? Don’t open the door! Burglars and robbers know that many households have new and often expensive, items in their homes following the December holidays, especially items such as tablets or laptops, mobile phones, music systems, televisions, cameras and other electronic equipment. In many cases, residents make it easy for burglars to figure out which homes to target by putting boxes that identify their new gifts in plain view with their other rubbish.

We hope you a nd your fa milies have a wonderful Christmas, a nd a happy New Y ear.

Pets and Vets

Pets, Brexit and Beyond change in the current legislation surrounding pet passports. Your pet dog, cat or ferret will need to be micro-chipped before it can be given a rabies vaccine and issued with a pet passport. It will be twentyone days before you can travel across Europe. On returning to Britain, dogs will need a tapeworm treatment, twenty-four to onehundred-and-twenty hours upon entering the U.K.

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

A second possible outcome is that the above regulations will apply but, within ten days of travel, an official veterinarian will need to issue a health certificate in addition to the pet passport. A health certificate will be required every time you wish to travel to Europe with your pet and, on arrival in the E.U, you will need to report to a Travellers’ Point of Entry.

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

History

Discovering . . . the Deeping Stage

Rex Needle

T

he sight of a stagecoach today is largely confined to Christmas cards, a romanticised version of travel from centuries past showing a ruddy-faced driver and a collection of merry passengers heading off to celebrate the festive season whereas reality was very different. Stagecoaches made their appearance on England’s roads in the 17th century when travel was extremely uncomfortable because of cramped seating and hazards such as mud, potholes and puddles, and also dangerous with the possibility of being held up by highwaymen such as Dick Turpin who made rich pickings from passengers until apprehended and hanged in 1739. But by 1743, eight stagecoaches were passing through Market Deeping each day with the result that roadside inns were established along the route to give rest and refreshment for horses and passengers, thus making it an important staging point between

62

D I S C O V E R I N G

London and the north and the cross country route between Boston and Stamford. The coming of the railways in the 19th century sounded the death knell for stagecoach travel and by 1850 they had gone although many of the old coaching inns remain in business, usually identified by the archways which allowed the coaches to pass through into the stable yard behind the inn where an ostler was waiting to help with the horses. The oldest of these in Market Deeping is the Bull Inn on the north side and dating from the early 17th century and although much altered over the years still contains a wealth of period detail including the open semi-circular moulded coaching archway on the front. Across the road was the New Inn, built of limestone with a Collyweston slate roof in 1802 when it was advertised as providing “well fitted commodious accommodation for the nobility, gentry and commercial travellers together with ample T H E

Deepings

stabling”, attracting clientele from coaches travelling to and from London via the Great North Road (now the A1 trunk road). The inn is now known as the Deeping Stage and that distinctive coaching arch has been enclosed, leading to an extension of the bar area following a £30,000 modernisation programme in 1974-75 which took nine months to complete to coincide with the name change although much of the original stonework and beams were retained as were the boot scrapers on each side of the doorway into the bar. Both buildings have been listed Grade II since 1968 which means that they are protected for the future as being of special architectural and historic importance and a continuing reminder of the stagecoach days of yesteryear.
