Introduction

Welcome to Your May Issue. This month’s welcome comes with a big smile, as National Smile Month 2019 takes place between May 13th and June 13th. This is the U.K.’s largest and longest-running campaign, to promote good oral health. At times we struggle to find things to warrant a smile, (no references this month to Brexit,remember!) so it’s worth remembering that it’s much easier to smile than it is to frown. Don’t forget … life is like a mirror- we get the best results when we smile at it! The breadth of subjects covered in our “Discovering” magazines is often a favourable comment which comes our way. Our regular contributors never cease to amaze with their enthusiasm, knowledge and ability to produce something both readable and most useful. Many thanks to them and to you for the messages of support and kind words we receive.

Claire x

Already a third of the year gone and a few days of serious sunshine have brought out the shorts and shades, but then fleeces have soon followed! This beautiful time of the year sees new life re-emerge from winter, and gardens become a kaleidoscope of colour … unless your dogs are like ours and your patch resembles a First World War battlefield – mud, craters … the lot! We can now look forward to longer and warmer days, especially when two of them are Bank Holidays, where we can hopefully enjoy some quality time together with family and friends. Our Events section can be, as ever, your first port of call for that special event to attend. Let’s hope that this month’s collection of articles and wise words from our knowledgeable contributors will help you make the most of what is on offer in the weeks ahead. And finally, Last week, I ordered a chicken and an egg from Amazon … I’ll let you know. Then I had a pelican curry – very tasty, but you should have seen the bill! Enjoy the words.

The Market Deeping Mayor’s Ball

On Saturday April 6th, the Mayor and Mayoress of Market Deeping, David and Nicky Shelton held their Mayor’s Charity Ball. The event was to celebrate a successful year, and to thank those who had helped with their achievements. The prime role of the mayor is to be the public face of, and to promote, the Town Council and the town itself to many parties, including other levels of government, and to a wide area of neighbouring local government. The memorable evening was created by hosting it, as the inaugural event at Sissons Barn at Peakirk, with an exquisite meal from the “Dog in a Doublet” restaurant at Thorney, and dance music from the local band, “Off the Record”. The event was a sell-out of 120 tickets, in tables of ten. There

were three tables of civic dignitaries from four counties; four tables from local businesses, including the event sponsor, DNA Scaffolding; two tables of local residents; one table sponsored by InvestSk, hosted by their Chief Executive, Steve Bowyer; and two tables taken by the mayor, including his invitees, family and friends. One of the main aims of the event was to raise money for the Mayor’s Charities, specifically to support children with special needs in local primary schools, and Dementia Support South Lincs. To achieve this, a Grand Raffle was held, with seven exclusive prizes, each worth hundreds of pounds, which included a beautifully crafted, unique, garden fireball created by local, renowned metalworker, Micky Culff from Deeping St James.

David commented that he and Nicky had attended over a hundred civic events over the last year, including many dinners and dances, and he believes that this one was the best. This was summed up by one guest as they left at the end, saying, “That was a damned good party!”

Your Garden

MAY Gardening Tips “Ne’er cast a clout till May be out,” says the old English proverb. We sometimes get lulled into a false sense of security and think that summer has arrived, but watch the weather in case of late frosts, and protect any tender seedlings. Also take care to harden off plants that have been grown indoors or under cover before planting. May is a difficult month to judge, as the weather can vary between heat and mini-drought to late frosts, heavy rain and strong winds. This month sees more pests appearing: aphids, slugs and snails will all be out in force and regard the new seedlings and young plants as a scrummy free meal, sampling your crops before you have chance to! A couple of ideas for repelling the varmints: Peppermint, spearmint and pennyroyal naturally deter aphids and ants, so plant (or put them in pots) throughout the vegetable plot. Plant flowers that attract the pest predators such as marigolds and nasturtiums. Some of us only set aside a small plot for growing fruit and vegetables so, to maximise your space, you can try: • Intercropping – sowing two crops in the same row, one slow and one fast growing. Fast growing crops include Oriental salad leaves, lettuces, radishes, spring onions, spinach and spring-planted shallots. Slow growers are parsnips, sweetcorn, tomatoes, leeks, winter cabbage, cauliflower, sprouting broccoli and Brussels sprouts. • Catch Cropping – sowing a fast-growing crop in the brief period a plot might be empty. Other jobs to do this month include: • Earth up potatoes. • Cover carrots with netting to stop carrot fly damage. • Harden off and plant out vegetables sown earlier. • Pot on growing plants. • Put up bean and pea supports. • Pick flowers off new strawberries to prevent them cropping in their first year. • When watering young plants and seedlings, it is better to water less frequently but more thoroughly as this gets down to the roots. If you water lightly, it may only wet the surface of the soil and the roots may be encouraged to stay near the surface where they are more likely to suffer from drought damage. • Seeds to sow out this month are too numerous to list but a few include carrots, beetroot, French beans, lettuce, spring onions, salad leaves and peas. • Try “succession sowing” a small batch of seeds every two or three weeks, and you should have a steady supply rather than a glut: it will also help to maximise your chances of successful germination. • Indoors, you can sow chillies, courgettes and squashes, runner beans, sweetcorn, aubergines and cabbages. Happy Gardening!

Property News

In Need of More Room? Is it Time to Upsize? by Jonathan Brewell​, Managing Partner, Newton Fallowell

W

hen looking for a bigger home with more space, people often get concerned about how much it will cost to take on a larger property. While a higher cost is naturally unavoidable when beginning this house-hunting journey, it really can make a huge difference to you and your family’s lives, giving you all that little bit more room to grow. So, what are some of the reasons why people look for more space? Needing more room for family and friends to stay Often, one of the triggers that inspires the desire to move somewhere bigger is having guests come to stay for a visit, especially the in-laws. Suddenly, a home that once felt spacious seems that little bit too overcrowded when it has an extra person or two taking up space. When family and friends live out of the area, or even out of the country, that extra space could mean being able to ‘put them up’ more comfortably. Wanting more space to create your individual ‘forever home’ Each of us has different priorities and visions when it comes to creating our true dream home. For some of us, it’s as simple as wanting more storage at home,

while others dream of having a beautiful garden to enjoy or having an open-plan family space. Often, the trigger for wanting a bigger property is about giving yourself a fresh canvas to start creating that dream home for yourself. Desiring flexible space at home that can suit every need Having that extra bedroom is probably the most common motivation people have for deciding to upsize, mainly because of the flexibility it allows. The room can simply be left as a spare bedroom for guests, but equally it could also become storage space, a room to workout in or even a dressing room.

function, as and when your life changes. Is it time for you to upsize? It’s likely that all of us, at some point or another, will start to have that niggling feeling that we are running out of space and it’s time to look for something new. We understand moving home isn’t a decision to be taken lightly so, for free home moving advice and a comprehensive cost of moving, please call Newton Fallowell on 01778 345978.

Dreaming of a home that can grow alongside you and your family Sometimes, needing more room to grow isn’t always about moving to a ‘bigger’ house in the literal sense. It’s also about choosing a property that has the potential to grow and change, as and when you need it to, whether that’s being able to extend and build onto the existing home or converting rooms to fill a different

Legal Corner

Change is Coming in Matrimonial Law

There was some good news during April regarding our divorce laws. The old so-called “Fault” based system, which has survived untouched for forty-six years, is to be changed. The parties will only need to state that the marriage has broken down “irretrievably.” This means that they will no longer need to argue “unreasonable behaviour”, comprising four or five allegations which can inflame a relationship at a time when matters are already strained. Further “adultery” will not need to be argued, nor “desertion” or “two year” or “five year” separation. Most practitioners will agree that these changes are long overdue. This leaves the parties to concentrate on resolving the finances. All parties are encouraged to seek guidance from ‘Relate’ if there is a prospect of saving a relationship, so a balance is to be struck between preserving what can still be saved as against unnecessarily making an emotional atmosphere worse by damaging allegations. The

government has said that it will now change the law. However, the old system survives until that time. What is always going to be crucial is that the parties should give serious consideration to obtain a Financial Order to protect them in relation to the monetary matters and property issues in the marriage. If they do not do that, they will potentially be

vulnerable to the other applying to court for such an Order, perhaps many years later, long after they have tried to move on. Sometimes, it is possible to obtain a so called “Clean Break” Order which confirms the agreement reached but closes the door as to further claims between the parties. As with most things, everything depends on the facts of the case, and legal advice should always be taken.

Advice

Consumer Advice

Pregnancy Should Not Lead to “Unfair Dismissal” Citizens Advice clients contact us with an amazingly wide variety of issues, and people’s rights change regularly as laws are updated. In April, a new discrimination toolkit was launched on the national website, and a link to this is given below.

By Eileen Le Voi

The kind of queries encountered include possible discrimination when an employee announces a pregnancy. Advice given by Citizens Advice is that it doesn’t matter how long someone has been working for an employer, being fired because of pregnancy, or pregnancy-related issues, is automatically classed as “unfair dismissal”. If an employer finds out an employee who has a previously good record is pregnant, and then sacks them for poor performance, the employee is right to be suspicious, and if the employer says the dismissal has nothing to do with having a baby, the employee will need to prove that it was, and can ask the employer to send written reasons for the dismissal. If the employee wants to challenge the dismissal, they can take the case to an employment tribunal. They should first raise a grievance with the employer and contact the Advisory Conciliation and Arbitration Service about ‘Early Conciliation’. Speed is important, as time limits in employment tribunals are short. To prepare for the tribunal, the employee should gather as much evidence as possible. This includes e-mails with the employer about the pregnancy, previous performance appraisals, and correspondence about the dismissal. The new Citizens Advice discrimination toolkit, found on the website at www.citizensadvice.org.uk/advisernet/work/ discrimination-at-work can help with this. 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 Charities have funded an outreach at the Institute, on 38 Church Street.

Cybercrime – Don’t Fall Foul of the Online Fraudsters

Deepings

CYBERCRIME has reached epidemic levels in the UK – with police reporting that more than £190,000 a day is lost by victims. The hacking of social media and e-mail accounts is rife, and according to Action Fraud, (which is run by the City of London Police), £34.6million was reported to be stolen from victims between April and September 2018; an increase of 24% on the previous six months. Over 13,000 people in the UK reported cybercrimes over the six months, with more than 5,000 of those having had their social media or e-mail accounts hacked – costing victims £14.8 million. Closer to home, an initiative to crackdown on scammers across Cambridgeshire and Peterborough, and aim to make the county scam-free, is gaining momentum. Safe Local Trades is delighted to be supporting the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Against Scams Partnership (CAPASP), which is committed to working towards stamping out scams; from postal to online fraud to telephone scams and doorstep rogue traders. In the case of cybercrime, fraudsters trick internet and e-mail users into giving personal details, including financial information, in order to steal their money. Some kinds of online scams to be aware of: • Phishing: where you receive an e-mail that pretends to be from an authority (e.g., your bank) in which you’re asked to give out your passwords or personal information such as your address, telephone number, or other data. • Pharming: the fraudulent practice of directing online users to a fake website, which mimics the appearance of a real/ legitimate one. • Romance Scams: a confidence scam whereby a criminal displays fake romantic intentions towards a victim in order to gain their affection to then extort money. • Impersonation of UK officials: criminals impersonate a UK official to obtain personal information by claiming that the victim is due a refund or must make an urgent payment. • File Hijacking: where a hacker enters your computer and accesses your files, locking you out of them. The hacker then demands a ransom (usually money) before he will give you your files back. • Screenshot Managing: where hackers enter your computer and take screenshots of your display. This can help them get information about you, get passwords, or even blackmail you. • Keylogging: where hackers can record your keystrokes on your computer, thus gaining your passwords or other personal information. • Ad Clicking: where hackers encourage you to click on a link (perhaps by e-mail, or on a webpage) which will then open malware or simply ask for your personal information. However, you can take steps to help protect yourself. • Ensure that your devices all have up-to-date anti-virus security. • Install a firewall and anti-spyware on your computer. • Ensure that you update your software (including Windows or iOS) when prompted to do so; postponing an update can leave you vulnerable. • Ensure that your devices are password-protected with a strong password - you can find the official governmental advice on creating passwords at www.cyberaware.gov.uk/passwords. If you think you or a loved one may have been the victim of a scam, report it to Action Fraud at www.actionfraud.police.uk . To find out how you can sign up for the fight against fraud, and read some tips on spotting a scam, visit www.safelocaltrades.com/ consumers/advice/friends-against-scams.

Oddfellows Give Youth Group Huge Cash Boost After News of Council Cuts After months of fundraising quizzes, the Nene and Welland Branch of the Oddfellows has raised £3,000 for Deepings Youth Group, which is based on Eastgate.

heard about the cuts affecting the Youth Club, we knew that it would have a devastating impact on the local community, and wanted to help, however we could.”

The local friendship society chose Deepings Youth Group as their charity of the year after hearing about huge government cuts which would prevent the Youth Club from receiving any council funding. This amount was raised by Oddfellows members and guests over the past twelve months through raffles, dinners and events, and will contribute towards the running costs involved in providing a safe and welcoming space for young people.

Cass Wales, Youth Group Manager for Deepings Youth Group commented on the donation: “It’s wonderful how the community has come together to help us continue running the youth group. With this donation, we’re able to ensure that the kids have great equipment to use, in a welcoming environment.”

Andrew Spencer, Social Co-ordinator for the Nene and Welland Branch of the Oddfellows, said, “We live in a very rural part of the UK, and there isn’t a huge amount for kids to do of an evening. When we 14

place to grow up. As a group, we meet regularly so we can stay in touch with others, share some laughs, as well as look out for each other.” From coffee mornings and craft sessions to lunch clubs and guest talks, the Nene and Welland Branch of the Oddfellows holds regular events and activities in the area. “We’d love to welcome some new faces to our group,” added Andrew, “and we’re always running a wide range of events – some social, some fundraising, but all designed to encourage friendship and a strong sense of community. If you’d like to come along and give us a try, you’re more than welcome!” To find out more, and to receive their latest events diary, contact Andrew Spencer on 07729 519 122 or e-mail andrew.spencer@ oddfellows.co.uk.

Best of British Manufacturing

by Dekota Cowing & Jordan MacIntosh

Great Britain has a rich history of carpet design and manufacturing, combining the long established tradition of sheep farming, with the advances in technology during the Industrial Revolution of the eighteenth century. There were many British manufacturers who helped shape the industry into what it is today, and there are many who continue to do so, whether it be with daring designs and striking colour combinations or just maintaining that high standard that they are renowned for. Here is a brief insight into the ‘who’s who’ of the British carpet manufacturing world. Brintons: A manufacturer who has been operating since 1783, they have the history behind them to cement themselves as one of the top British manufacturers, developing colours in their studio and specialising in woven carpets. They produce Wilton - a textured plain and Axminster – carpets with incredibly detailed patterns which are the ‘gold standard’. Penthouse Carpets: Established over forty years ago, Penthouse Carpets are renowned for manufacturing high quality, wool-rich, tufted carpets. Based in Rochdale, they continuously develop close working partnerships with a small number of UK-based spinners,

securing the highest quality standard of British yarn which is used to produce sumptuous carpets. The combination of experience, pride and expertise of Penthouse Carpets’ workforce ensure exceptional quality and service. Cormar Carpet Co: They have been trading since 1924, and were originally a textile supplier, based in the Rossendale Valley, where they traded as Greenwood & Coope Ltd. In 1956, with the advent of a new method of producing carpets, called ‘tufted’, Neville Cormack set up Cormar Carpets. For over sixty years now, they have been making carpets at two Lancashire mills. As a family-run business, with family values at heart, they take great pride

in understanding the art of making a home. Westex: With their roots firmly planted in the sheep farming and textile heartland of West Yorkshire, Westex Carpets’ contemporary approach draws on their industrial heritage within the traditional woollen industry. Westex Carpets was originally the concept of a master dyer who wanted to offer a wider range of colour and quality within carpet manufacture. Today, they do not produce carpets for any other company, so their exclusive ranges and special dye service have ensured that you can find a Westex carpet in many discerning homes, private establishments and public spaces

History

Discovering . . . The pack horse bridge

Rex Needle

B

ridges date back to the earliest times when even the most primitive communities created crossings over rivers and streams following their favourite paths to make hunting and gathering easier, using whatever materials there were to hand such as fallen trees. These constructions were basic until the Romans came up with an architectural device over 2,000 years ago to carry a path over a narrow width known as the Roman arch, thus providing the fundamental principle on which all future bridges were based. The pack horse bridge is one such development, built to carry pack horses loaded with side bags or panniers across a river rather than take the long way round which could involve a diversion of many miles. Such bridges therefore have narrow masonry arches and low parapets in order not to interfere with the horse’s load and were often built on the trade routes across Europe, a design also followed in England before the coming of the turnpike roads and canals in the 18th century, and the Deeping Gate bridge which crosses the River Welland on the B1162 is popularly known by that name. This 17th century structure built mainly of limestone has three arches with half round parapets and stands on the parish boundary between Deeping Gate and Deeping

Deepings

St James. Refuges or alcoves were placed over each of the cut-waters or forward edges of the piers where, as the name implies, horses loaded with goods could wait to enable carts and carriages to pass. The bridge dates from 1651 and is now Grade II listed as being of historic and architectural importance although the middle arch has a brick vault and appears to have been partially rebuilt. The bridge was constructed in an age when horses for transport in all its forms ruled the highways and the structure is no longer practical for today’s continual streams of motorised traffic, the roadway over it narrowing to a mere 13 feet wide without a footpath and now carries a weight restriction of 7.5 tonnes. Despite this precaution, the stone structure has been at risk from heavy vehicles on several occasions, the last incident being in January 2015 when part of the parapet on the Deeping St James side was demolished by a lorry which left debris scattered over the road. The damage was quickly repaired and temporary safety cones placed along the carriageway as a warning to vehicles passing this way but as long as careless driving persists, further mishaps would appear to be inevitable.

Treat your Family and Home to Beautifully Softened Water With hard water you have to use more product to get a good lather, which can aggravate and irritate the skin. As well as being abrasive, hard water doesn’t necessarily wash the entire residue off. This residue can be left on the skin which can worsen dry skin conditions. The NHS website lists “water especially hard, chalky water or heavy chlorinated water” as a common irritant of contact dermatitis.

Morris Water Softeners is a family-run business based in Northorpe. The company has been going for over thirty years and is now one of the leading suppliers in the UK. We can supply all types of water softener and other related drinking water products. We also supply and deliver salt for all types of water softeners and we are especially proud of the personal service we offer our customers. What are the downsides of having hard water? New research has revealed the link between hard water and skin conditions like eczema. Scientists at the University of Sheffield and King’s College London have proved that hard water damages the skin, raising the risk of infection and potentially contributing to the development of eczema. The study, which we were asked to fund, proves what we’ve known here for years; when it comes to skin conditions, softened water can make all the difference. Minerals in hard water, the same culprits behind limescale, were shown to make skin more sensitive to irritation, but when researchers used softened water in their study, they found that softened water could reduce these negative effects. It could even lower the risk of eczema developing in the first place. For people living with chronic skin conditions, this research could be a game-changer, especially when one in five children is affected by eczema.

How does a water softener work? In brief, it is designed to remove calcium (scale) and magnesium (scum) from hard water. They are installed at the point the water supply enters the premises and treat the whole house, therefore resulting in: reducing the cost of your soap/detergent, removing existing limescale, preventing the build-up of limescale in your hot water system as well as around your taps and reducing your fuel costs and heating system costs. The 9 wonders of having a water softener: Bigger bubble baths, Cheaper bills , Fewer products, Perfect cups of tea, Glossier hair, Longer-lasting appliances, Shinier home, Softer skin, Better for the environment. Let us make your home sparkly, your cuppa tastier, your skin silkier, clothes softer and your appliances last longer, all the while saving you money along the way! To fully appreciate the difference soft water makes in your home and for free expert and impartial water advice, call 01778 394830 or e-mail us your questions.

Happy New Year!

- by Richard Ash & Matthew Biggs - Liberty Partnership Ltd

New Years in April, are you sure? No, I’ve not been drinking! I am, of course, referring to the start of the 2019/20 tax year. Working in the financial services industry, many people will tell you it gets rather hectic whenever the tax year draws to a close; however, a lot people let it pass by without a second thought. We see this as an opportunity missed, as each year we are given various allowances and we believe everyone should be looking to utilise these to their full potential.

savings in a tax-efficient ISA, where you won’t be subject to Capital Gains Tax on any growth, and also pay no Income Tax when you need to dip into it?

Take ISAs, for example. Each year, the government sets the allowance on how much money you are able to pay into one in that tax year. This is currently £20,000. Now, I know not everyone has £20,000 ‘lying around’ but we all like to save money, so why not take advantage of this allowance and ‘wrap’ your

You also get an annual allowance for pension contributions. This is the amount you can pay in, and benefit from the tax efficiency of a pension. Currently, this allowance is set at 100% of your earnings or £40,000, whichever is lower. We feel a pension contribution is a valuable weapon in the financial

D I S C O V E R I N G

planning arsenal, but is incredibly underutilised. Not only do you receive tax relief on any personal contribution you make, but it also extends out your basic rate income tax band, which is currently 20%, by the amount you personally contribute. So, if you’re currently a higher or additional rate taxpayer, you may be able to reduce your tax liability – great!

Although it is now too late to take advantage of these allowances in the 2018/19 tax year, the good news is that all the allowances reset as of April 6th. If you feel you have missed out, and would like to learn about all the advantages of utilising the available tax allowances, then please contact the office on 01778 342291 to arrange a FREE initial consultation with one of our highly trained and experienced advisers.

Crowdfunded Funerals on the Rise as Undertakers’ Fees Soar by Nick Ash, Managing Director With the average cost of a funeral now standing at £4,271, families are struggling to find the money to arrange for their loved ones’ burial or cremation. The Competition and Markets Authority launched a market study in 2018 which revealed funeral costs had increased by two-thirds in the previous ten years. For those who can’t afford it, the local authority may offer meanstested help for a funeral in some circumstances, or even arrange a basic cremation if no-one else is willing or able to arrange one. In that case, they would seek to recoup their costs from the estate later.

Crowdfunding platform, Just Giving, saw a one-third rise in crowdfunding appeals for funeral expenses in 2017/18. A page on another similar platform, Go Fund Me, was opened recently for the family of footballer and reality TV celebrity, Mike Thalassitis, after he died unexpectedly. The fund was closed after a day, having raised £5,000. Most crowdfunding appeals are started for younger decedents who have died suddenly leaving young families and little spare money – but it is not just the younger generation who pass away with no will, life insurance or estate planning in place.

Funeral costs become due at the time of making the arrangements, although some firms may delay payment if there are sufficient funds in an estate. But for those who haven’t made plans, and where there is no money available, finding thousands of pounds can be impossible. The other option is to buy a prepaid funeral plan. At Will & Probate Services, we have recently become an agent for Co-op Funeral Plans. These can offer guaranteed peace of mind for as little as £2,895 or £16.68 per month. If you would like to find out more, please call us on 01778 382723.

Club Spotlight

Glinton Horticultural Society - Your Friendly Gardening Club! Glinton Horticultural Society was formed in 1943 in conjunction with a local fete and gala, and is still going strong after all these years. In the spring we hold a Plant Sale in Glinton Village Hall – this year it will be on Saturday, May 4th. This is very popular with the public, starting at 10 o’clock and finishing at noon. There’s always a queue before we open the doors! During the summer, we organise a number of trips out to gardens or places of interest. In September, it’s time for our Annual Show. This has classes as diverse as ‘grow the heaviest pumpkin’ to the best photo of ‘people at work’. The Show is on for one afternoon and covers flowers, fruit and vegetables, baking, craft, photography, wine- and beer-making, plus a children’s section. Please come along; one of these categories must interest you, so it’s time to get your entries ready! The schedule and classes are on our website.

During the winter, there are monthly talks in Glinton Village Hall when there’s not a great deal to do in the garden. Any information we want to share is done by e-mail or on our website or Facebook page.

The Glinton Horticultural Society Open Show will be held at Arthur Mellows Village College in Glinton on Saturday, September 21st this year, starting at 2.00pm. 32

Where Does the Time Go? Make the Most of Every Day. by Claire Saunders, Renu - Health, Beauty & Fitness

O

ur lives are a large collection of single days, one right after the other. The sun rises, the sun sets, and it rises again. And in the end, the lives we choose to live will be determined by how we choose to spend each day. It can seem that one day, it’s new year and the next, we are changing the clocks and preparing for the summer. The next step is summer days ahead, holidays, swimsuits and revisiting summer wardrobes. Making a simple plan for each individual day, rather than long-term objectives can help you enjoy life and achieve your goals. Here are ten simple steps that will help you make the most of every single day.

1

Get a good night’s sleep – Take a look at your sleeping habits. You will have a much more productive day after a good night’s sleep.

5

2

6

Eat right – Put your health and wellbeing at the top of your priority list.

3

Exercise – Research shows that just twenty minutes moderate exercise can make you calmer, happier and more equipped to deal with whatever life throws at you today.

4

Accomplish one big task – This may be as simple as one of the above! Set one task, not three, and feel good when you have achieved it.

Do one thing that you love – Hobbies and doing things that you love breathe life into who you are. Do one thing that you love every day. Rest Effectively – Rest is as essential to your body as water and air. Schedule some time to rest in your day and don’t feel guilty about it.

7

Be present with others – Put away distractions, engage in conversations and ask questions.

8

Give to someone else – Invest your life in someone else every day. Help a co-worker, fund a local charity or just make that phone call to a friend who needs to hear from you

9

Nurture your soul – Find time each day to appreciate your surroundings and be grateful. Our lives are more than flesh and blood.

10

Reset – Tomorrow is another day with great potential and opportunity. Take time each evening to appreciate the good things about today and make a plan for tomorrow. At Renu, we offer an opportunity for you to make the most of every day, with space for rest, exercise, wellbeing and hobbies you love. If you would like to see more of what we have to offer, please see our website www.renu.uk.com.

Make the most of every day and do something you love You can join our ladies gym and enjoy unlimited virtual spin classes for just £20 per month with no joining fee. Studio classes also available for all ages and abilities. Call 01778 423923 for more details or visit www.renu.uk.com

First Steps to Finding Friendship After Losing a Partner Withdrawing socially is normal after losing a partner. But when the time feels right to join in again, local friendship group Nene & Welland Oddfellows say they can help make those daunting first steps a little easier to take. Andrew Spencer, Social Coordinator for the Nene & Welland, said: “Wanting time alone or to stay in is only natural following the loss of a partner, and the time it takes to feel ready to step out and meet people again is a very personal thing. It can be a matter of weeks for some, or possibly years for others. Our advice is to take it one step at a time and to do it when it feels right.” With over two centuries of experience in offering friendship and support to its local members, the Market Deeping-based Branch of the Oddfellows is no stranger to supporting people through difficult times. Andrew continued: “When you’ve lost someone, it can be

hard to muster up the courage to join in and meet new people again. We understand how daunting it can be as you probably did a lot of things as a couple. Sustaining friendships can seem hard after a loss, but over time the people around you will be a crucial part of helping you to cope moving forward. “There are so many wonderful things to get involved with locally. We’d recommend coming along to our Craft Club on Wednesday May 8th, as it’s a great first event for those who would like to meet new people. We’ve seen many supportive friendships form within our group, especially between other widows and widowers, because they just know what each other is going through.” If you’ve recently lost a partner and feel ready to start socialising again, Nene & Welland Oddfellows offer the following advice: • See what events are on locally. Don’t go for anything overly

ambitious at first, but events such as coffee mornings, interesting talks, or something linked to a hobby, are perfect. • Ring ahead, so you know what to expect. Many groups, such as the Oddfellows, will arrange for someone to meet you on the door, or pair you with a friendly regular. You could always bring a friend or family member along with you to give you some support. • Just give it a try. If it’s not for you, then don’t go again. You’ve nothing to lose. To have a chat with somebody ahead of trying out an event, or to receive Nene & Welland’s latest events diary, contact Andrew Spencer on andrew. spencer@oddfellows.co.uk or call 07729 519122 between 9am and 5pm.

WHERE NEXT FOR THE SUCCESSFUL EMPIRE IDEA? by Matt Weston

On July 14th this year we will have our fifth anniversary - a proud and significant milestone for us. Significant, because we have never pretended to know everything about the industry. We took a gamble. A big one, both in financial investment and in terms of our lack of fitness industry experience. But we backed ourselves. We backed our determination as a family and we backed our ability to work, learn, adapt and roll with the punches. And we believed in the essence of an idea - ‘The Empire Idea’, a revolutionary idea. July 14th, through coincidence rather than planning, indeed marks revolution itself, being Bastille Day. And in terms of a change of the tide and a new way of moving forward, we hope we have demonstrated as a gym and a family that there is a different way to define the meaning and purpose of a gym. We have always focussed on the fostering of community, friendliness and togetherness. Creating an environment in which people first and foremost feel comfortable. • Comfortable in their physical surroundings, due to the quality of equipment. • Comfortable in taking advice that is professional, safe, knowledgeable and aspirational. • Confident in the behaviour and demeanour of their fellow members, customers and friends.

44

D I S C O V E R I N G

• Confident that we, as a family, will take a rounded, personable approached based on relationships before all else.

Empire to complete time in a working environment in order to help build his skills and confidence.

In doing this, we have created a free flow of communication. We are able to convey our approaches and ideas to our members and customers, and importantly we are able to listen to their feedback and act on it where appropriate, while still forming our own educated and passionate opinions based on what we consider to be the direction we would like to see Empire take.

And most recently, although I cannot divulge names, we are being recommended by professional medical consultants to people who are going through serious illness and ailment who want, and indeed need, to exercise to improve their condition and therefore their prognosis. We are very proud of this part of our business. Members at Empire will know what I am referring to, as it can be seen on a daily and weekly basis. Not shouted from the rooftops, but respectfully and properly conducted as part of the daily culture here at Empire Gym. Indeed, the greatest accolade is that it is a normal and unremarkable part of any day.

I just want quickly to make note of a recent and warming trend at Empire before I go any further. We now, it seems, have a solid and wellfounded reputation for being a gym that excels in working with people with unique personal situations to overcome. People who want to pursue their determined fitness goals either because of, in spite of or inspired by physical or mental challenges and difficulties. We are working more and more with people with Multiple Sclerosis, who now work independently in the gym, navigating the terrain in their wheelchairs. We work, and have always worked, with young people with learning difficulties and on a day a week, every week, we have a superb young man at

T H E

Deepings

So… What next? We do things properly but we are also keen to allow the Empire brand to grow. To expand. Indeed to be available to people who at the moment are not geographically best placed to benefit from the Deepings’ fitness jewel. I am a firm believer that community has less to do with geographical location, rather it is about bringing people together who share positive, constructive, kind and aspirational

may 2019


Health ideas. And because of this there are no limits as to exactly where the Empire idea could take root and blossom again. We have had a lot of feedback through the opportunity that social media provides. We have asked the question… Who wants us across Greater Peterborough? And there are already trends. Bourne wants Empire! That is loud and clear. So this is something that is really giving us food for thought - Very exciting and indeed very humbling. It seems natural that the Deepings being Bourne’s neighbour has allowed the Bourne community to watch closely and learn about the Empire Idea. Indeed I’m sure as the two towns are so close, many friends and family members have had conversations about their Empire experiences. Crowland also want us! Which is superb and we are incredibly grateful for the feedback we have received and continue to receive from the Crowland community. Then there’s the city of Peterborough itself. Hampton, the Ortons, Central Peterborough. All have expressed their desire for us to transport our own unmistakable style of fitness culture and family culture to their area. What excites me most is the opportunity to bring people together. To bring ideas, cultures and communities together. As I have already alluded to, I believe that our business and personal approach can create a community within communities. In an age that appears to want to put division and separation in the headlines, I think Greater Peterborough and its widely diverse communities is a gift, a joy - an opportunity. With diversity of background, culture and ideas comes enrichment of relationships and friendships. With diversity of people comes knowledge, new approaches, and an opportunity to learn. Think food alone, for example. Food, diet, nutrition and the way it is woven into the tapestry of the fitness journey can

only benefit from the way cuisines across cultures differ and give us more interesting ways to eat well and to be healthy. These types of conversation permeate the daily interactions of people at Empire Gym as they share their interest and their common thread of fitness and being part of the Empire family. I’d love to bring this to new areas. So what would an extension of the Empire Brand into another part of Greater Peterborough actually look like? Well, that’s one I’m going to keep under my hat for the short term. But the idea and plan exists vividly in my mind. I can see it. The vision is there. And it would work. All I ask is that people continue to feed back to me and to us all at Empire about where we would be best advised to go next. I think it’s fair to say, five years is a reasonable period of time in which the public can make a judgement. The Empire Idea works. Therefore it can be transported. A deep-seated gym culture like ours takes time, patience and daily and hourly commitment on a macro business level, but most importantly on a micro personal level. We have done, and continue to do, that relentless but so rewarding work. The culture is real and recognised across Greater Peterborough. So the question remains…. Where next?!

Take to the Skies with Confidence

by Nicole Woodcock, Hummingbird Hypnotherapy

It’s that time of year when many people are looking forward to getting on a plane and getting away from it all, for that all-important summer break away in the sun. But, for some, the thought of flying can make them feel a little uneasy. The majority of people don’t fly regularly and, although getting to a hot destination for a holiday for some is enough to get them on the plane, others can begin to think of all the issues that might go wrong. If we’re already feeling stressed, our brain is great at throwing propaganda our way and making us believe something is dangerous, putting the brain into “fight or flight mode”. This then is triggered particularly when we don’t like doing something like flying. So, if you have a phobia about taking to the skies, perhaps solution focused hypnotherapy can help you feel calmer, more confident and relaxed about that next flight. Using safe techniques, hypnotherapy can help you to overcome that minor phobia or fear that may have been holding you back for so long.

I am a fully insured and qualified, solution focused hypnotherapy practitioner, based at Wake House in North Street, Bourne. I work with clients who may dislike aspects of flying that can result in them feeling a bit nervous before they get onto a plane or whilst they are on board. Over a period of normally three to four hypnotherapy sessions, I can help someone feel more confident about flying, with the sole aim of aiding them to board a plane, feeling relaxed and calm. I use specific hypnotherapy techniques which involve helping people overcome specific phobia responses, which can range from flying to a fear of spiders. To help someone gain confidence in an area of their life is a fantastic

feeling and it is great to see the clients themselves go on to gain confidence as an air passenger or in other areas of their life, thanks to solution focused hypnotherapy and working together with their desire for positive change. Solution focused hypnotherapy can also be used to help ease stress, improve confidence, aid in weight management and it can also help people to become non-smokers. For further information on Hummingbird Hypnotherapy and positive workshops and relaxation, please visit www. hummingbirdhypnotherapy.co.uk. Positive thoughts,

Nicole

Celebrity Edge – “Spacious, stylish Clare Lockett and sophisticated” Cruising

Travel Counsellor

This month sees the long-awaited launch of the cruise ship, “Celebrity Edge” and Clare Lockett has been invited on board for the UK Travel and Media Launch.

“Celebrity Edge” will change the way you play, dine and unwind at sea. Revolutionary on every level, she’s the ship that’s setting a new standard of luxury and innovation at sea. From the incredible Magic Carpet – the world’s first cantilevered, floating platform that reaches heights of thirteen storeys above sea level – to the private plunge pools in the new Edge Villas; the way you cruise will never be the same again. Indulge the senses in a transformative atmosphere within the multi-faceted Eden experience available on board, reflecting a natural environment like no other available on a cruise liner. Representing an ever-evolving stimulation of the senses, three distinct levels explorable from dusk until dawn include chillful, playful, and sinful as “Celebrity Edge” lures you into a new state of mind. Red Carpet: The “Celebrity Edge” certainly has the edge when it comes to jaw-dropping venues, with the extraordinary Magic Carpet reflective of an outward-facing design vision, ensuring you feel fully immersed in your natural surroundings during your cruise. The first cantilevered floating platform to be installed on a luxury cruise liner is crafted with comfortable seating as you enjoy drinks from a fully-stocked bar to the sound of live music performances. Resort Deck: An alluring urban playscape and aquatic haven, The Resort Deck encompasses the main pool area, the new rooftop

garden, the jogging track, and the adults-only solarium. Dramatically oversized art installations include treetop sculptures, private cabanas, and two-storey hot tubs competing with the best in resort-style settings, while the new garden space contains a movie hub and spectacular dining at the Rooftop Garden Grill.       Eden:   Chillful Located on three decks, begin the day within Eden’s calming atmosphere of chillful, where natural light streams through the windows, as you listen to gentle, soothing music and live performances all around you. Playful In the afternoon, the atmosphere is notched up towards playful. Hands-on culinary enrichment classes, cooking demonstrations, cooking classes, cocktail making and wine tasting form a variety of activities to enjoy as you listen to the atmospheric sounds of the sea, background and live music. Sinful As the sun sets, creative lighting and atmospheric performances produce a new ambience as part of ‘Eve at Eden’, coming together to form the ultimate blend of performance art, culinary treats and nightlife. Clare will be sure to feedback on her experience, so watch out for the update. In the meantime call Travel Counsellors for more information on dates of cruises, itineraries, and book your stay aboard the “Celebrity Edge”.

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.

Mother’s Day Competition Winner In our March issue, we asked you if you had a mum in a million and what it was that made her so special for you. The prize was for you and your mum to be spoilt at Lilli’s Tea Room and Cakery in Market Gate, Market Deeping, with one of their fabulous ‘Afternoon Tea for Two’ packages. The winning mum was Christine Bowers, whose daughter Carol assured us all that Christine is a “wonderful lady who always puts her family first.” Times have been difficult for Christine recently, acting as a full-time carer for several years for her husband, who sadly passed away last November. However, Carol’s love for her mum and her kind words meant that she and Christine were able to enjoy a delicious afternoon tea at Lilli’s and make the most of their Mother’s Day treat.

School News Deeping St James Community Primary School The last month has brought about some great successes at DSJ and many exciting events. Right at the beginning of March, the school took part in the Peterborough Drama Festival. We entered children from as young as five-years-old right up to elevenyear-olds with great success. Our Year 3/4 and Year 5/6 Choral Speaking Classes won their age group categories. In addition, the children won cups in two prose reading classes, a group acting class and a group mime class. The Peterborough Drama Festival is a great event that runs every year and the children benefit greatly from it. On the sporting front, our cross country teams have been doing excellently in the local area cross country event, winning both the Year 5/6 and Year 3/4 girls cross country team trophies.

The school has also had a great World Book Day and a whole school Science Day, where children and adults alike took part in a range of awe-inspiring investigations. As you may know, DSJ is passionate about music, with our Spring Concert taking place in the next couple of weeks.

Seasonal Delights with Amy at Vine House Farm The countdown is over & our home grown, organic, asparagus is ready! Growing asparagus is a labour of love - each spear is harvested by hand when it reaches just the right height. Dubbed the Usain Bolt of the vegetable world, asparagus can grow up to 10cm in just one day. So versatile, you could eat it a different way every day of the eight week season. Asparagus and eggs are always a timeless Spring combination. Try dipping fresh spears into a softly boiled egg or make asparagus soup and top it with a poached egg and a drizzle of olive oil (make sure those eggs are free range!) ENJOY....NEW SEASON CARROTS Locally grown, new season, carrots are also now ready. There is so much flavour packed into their skins which is delicious complimented with a little butter & orange zest, or tarragon & thyme. They’re also yummy simply eaten raw.

HOME GROWN

THIS MONTH

Asparagus, Spinach, Chard, Salad Leaves, Raddish, Cabbages, Cauliflower, Beetroot

NEW POTATOES Another ‘hero’ at this time of year, new potatoes are sweet & delicious. Left unwashed, they last longer as dirt protects them from bruising & deterioration. You don’t need to peel new potatoes; just rinse to remove any dirt & boil, steam or roast. COMING UP

NEXT MONTH

June sees the start of the British strawberry season & home grown beetroot will make an appearance

Rotarians Join Forces to Help School Pupils at Willoughby School in Bourne can look forward to an activity break this summer, thanks to the generosity of two Rotary Clubs.

to Caythorpe PGL this summer, providing £1,000 towards the cost of the visit - £500 from each club.

Willoughby School is a special school for pupils with moderate, severe, profound and complex learning needs and, last year, the Rotary Club of the Deepings teamed up with the Rotary Club of Bourne to sponsor a trip for eight pupils from the school to go to Caythorpe PGL Activity Centre for three days.

Willoughby School headteacher, James Husbands, and trip leader Nicola Hill recently attended a meeting of the Deepings Rotary Club to give a presentation on last year’s trip. This was illustrated by pictures showing the wide range of activities the students took part in, from kayaking to raft building, archery to fencing, even having the exciting opportunity to glide through the air on a zip wire!

The trip was so successful that the two Rotary clubs have again agreed to sponsor another trip

Mr Husbands described the trip as a fantastic experience, and he thanked the two Rotary clubs for

their support, adding, “Without that support, the pupils would not have been able to experience the residential trip.” President of the Rotary Club of the Deepings, Jenny Spratt, (centre), with headteacher James Husbands and Nicola Hill of Willoughby School

Lilly Smashes Two Midland Times at Grantham Grand Prix Deepings Swimming Club celebrated round two of the Grantham Grand Prix with a pair of ‘Midland Qualifying Times’ and a host of personal bests as the squad of thirty competed against swimmers from across Lincolnshire.

Her other personal best came in the 50m backstroke. In the boys 12 years age group, Alex Sadler achieved two topthree finishes, in the 50m freestyle and in the 200IM. Lucia Karic excelled in the 10 years, winning the 50m backstroke and finishing second in the 200m freestyle. Also showing well in the girls 10 years age group was Grace Edwards.

We had some excellent performances, with every swimmer achieving at least one personal best, which shows what great progress they are all making.” Congratulations to the rest of the team, all of whom also achieved at least one new personal best: Aaron Sadler, Daniel Partridge, Oliver Shepherd, Joshi Harriss, Joseph Black, Sasha Johnson, Evie Fletcher, Maddie Taylor, Georgia Hunter, Emma Dennis, Jack Cradock, James Townsin, Antony Hall, Maddy Partridge, Daisy Jungmann, Philip Jaklewicz.

School News Deepings School Space-A-Holics “Over the Moon” in International Lego Challenge On Saturday February 16th, a team of eight students from the Deepings School took part in the UK final of the First Lego League. The team named themselves “Space-A-Holics” and had previously won the regional heat, which took place at Park Air Systems in Market Deeping. The First Lego League is an international competition, with an estimated participation of 500,000 young people, aged between ten and sixteen. The competition itself requires the team to take part in four challenges, namely: Core Values – How well do they work as a team and how do they interact with other teams? Project – The team research and present a unique solution to a problem associated with the challenge for this year. The challenge this year had a space theme. Robot Game – Using only Lego branded bricks and a Lego Mindstorms kit, the students build and

programme an autonomous robot to complete as many tasks as they can in 2 ½ minutes. Robot Design – The students have to present their robot to a panel of engineers and discuss how they designed the robot to meet the challenges on the board. The Lego League final was held in Bristol at the University of the West of England Conference Centre. The team arrived to be greeted by a television crew who interviewed them live for a worldwide broadcast. During the day, the team performed really well, especially in the project, where the judges said that they thought they were the most professional team that they had seen in their section of judging. The main part of the day was spent on the Robot board, with three rounds of challenges, and the team eventually finishing in eighth place. At the award ceremony, whilst the team were not successful in gaining one of the four major trophies, they were presented with the judges’ award. This award recognises consistent performance across all four categories, without winning one of them. The team were over the moon with this award. (Words by Mr Craig Walton, STEM Club Co-ordinator and Science Teacher)

Baston C. of E. Primary School On Thursday March 7th, we celebrated World Book Day and Farming Week at school. The theme for our World Book Day was ‘Traditional Tales’, where children came dressed up as well-known characters from “The Gingerbread Man” to Charlotte from “Charlotte’s Web”! A great day was had by all. Children read all day, writing their own traditional tales and sharing favourite stories with others.

We all learnt about crops that are grown locally and the foodstuffs that they help to produce. Our Year 6 children have visited Stibbington to experience life as an evacuee during World War Two. They learnt about life as an evacuee, and what a typical school day would have been like during that time.

Local farmers visited the school with two tractors. 60

School News Market Deeping Community Primary School The expansion building work at Market Deeping Community Primary School is very nearly finished and the school is already making the most of the fabulous new learning spaces. The hall has seen some exciting PE lessons and pleasant lunchtimes, but its main impact has been to give the children and staff their sense of community back. Headteacher, Mark Ratchford, said, “We have been without a hall throughout the summer and autumn terms which has made it difficult to operate as effectively as we would have liked. Now that we have a wonderful new hall, the children are able to benefit from regular assemblies which welcome visitors from our local community and enable us to host special events. We have had reading workshops for parents, charity events, visitors from Deepings Lakes, the Town Council and the Key Theatre in the past few weeks. It is hugely important to our school that we celebrate our links with the local community and come together as a school to share our achievements and

celebrations.” The school has been placing emphasis on helping the community and has been working with a family in school to support the World Encephalitis Awareness Day. One of the pupils suffered a brain injury last year and the day was designed to help develop an understanding of the effects of the condition and how to help. Awareness was also raised when children in the school enjoyed opportunities to dress up for World Book Day and Comic Relief. The ECO Team were very grateful to Mr Bob Broughton from the Town Council for making eight lovely bird boxes to put up around the school site. He came into assembly to present our weekly certificates and awards to the children. The school loves to have guests to come to our assembly on Fridays and if you represent a local community group or work locally, please get in touch at admin@marketdeeping.lincs.sch.uk or 01778 343654. We have lots of updates on our school website www.mdcp.co.uk .

of his greatest characters. In this powerful drama set in Ancient Rome, Brutus and Cassius, fearing the growing domination of Julius Caesar, plot his death. But when, on the Ides of March, the dictator is assassinated, Mark Antony unleashes the rage of the people against the conspirators.

Throughout the summer, from June 11th to August 31st this year, the Stamford Shakespeare Company presents a season of plays at the stunning Rutland Open Air Theatre. Described by ‘The Sunday Times’ as “One of the finest things to do this summer”, and ‘The Stage’ as “One of England’s premier alfresco theatre venues”, it really is an experience not to be missed. This summer the Company are proud to present three fantastic plays: Set in Albania in the early 19th century, garnished with live music and glorious costumes, Shakespeare’s greatest comedy, “Twelfth Night”, containing some of his finest comic characters, is a merry tale of unrequited love, shipwrecked twins, cross dressing, mistaken identity and drunken revels. The hilarious antics of roguish Sir Toby Belch, foolish Sir Andrew Aguecheek, pert Maria and prim Malvolio will delight audiences, young and old. Shakespeare’s epic tragedy “Julius Caesar”, where political and military rivalries spiral out of control, is one of his most gripping plays and features some

Noel Coward’s “Blithe Spirit”, a wonderful, supernatural comedy set in the late 1930s, portrays the trials and tribulations of novelist Charles Condomine, who foolishly holds a séance to research his latest book. When the eccentric medium, Madame Arcati, accidentally summons the spirit of his first wife, Elvira, his life descends into chaos. How will Charles cope, caught between two wives, one dead, the other very much alive? The theatre is situated in the grounds of historic Tolethorpe Hall, where last summer over 33,000 people experienced the magic of a visit to this unique venue. Enjoy a picnic in the glorious gardens, then take your seat, protected from summer showers, and see a stage like no other.

Introducing the New Volkswagen T-Cross Welcome to the family: The T-Cross is the latest practical, cool and versatile addition to Volkswagen’s fast-growing SUV range. Even more suitable for the city than the T-Roc, and more compact than the Tiguan – but just as sophisticated as both including numerous assist systems which had previously been reserved for higher vehicle categories. As versatile and practical as its larger siblings and combined with an attractive design, the new T-Cross is a flexible model with numerous customisation options and maximum recognition value – a typical Volkswagen. Numerous standard assist systems elevate this compact SUV from the competition. Always a standard feature are the Front Assist area monitoring system with Pedestrian Monitoring and City Emergency Braking System; the lane keeping system Lane Assist; Hill Start Assist; as well as Blind Spot Monitor lane change assist, with integrated Rear Traffic Alert. Optionally available are also the Driver Alert System, Adaptive Cruise Control and Park Assist. The newest Volkswagen SUV has also been innovatively digitalised: as a result, wireless charging

makes sure your smartphone battery is always sufficiently charged, encouraging you to play your favourite songs directly from your smartphone or via streaming services. The optional “Beats” sound system including features, such as a 300 W 8-channel amplifier, and separate subwoofer in the luggage compartment will impress music lovers. The Keyless Access locking and starting system is optionally available, as is the digital cockpit featuring 8-inch infotainment touchscreen and the most recent generation of the “Active Info Display”. Available in a choice of two petrol, turbocharged engines with displacement of 1.0 litres, which comply with the latest Euro 6d-TEMP emission standard. The entry-level petrol engine with 95 PS is combined with a five-speed manual gearbox, while the 115 PS variant is equipped with a six-speed manual gearbox as standard, or with the highly efficient seven-speed DSG. Compact, but far from small: be it more legroom for passengers or more space in the luggage compartment – any plan can be easily realised, thanks to the rear seat bench that can be moved by fourteen centimetres. Interior background lighting and premium upholstered seats maximise the style in the space. The carefully balanced combination of casual style, refined practicality and extreme cost-effectiveness is aimed at a young and young-and-heart public who are keen to express their positive attitude to life in a self-confident and distinctive way. However, they clearly also like to keep a watchful eye on costs and maximise benefits associated with their chosen ride. Available in a choice of four models from £16,995, test drive now at Robinsons Volkswagen in Peterborough.
