Introduction

Welcome to Your July Issue. A warm welcome to our July issue in what is turning into a rather warm summer for us here in the east of the country – although rather damp at times too! In 1935, George Gershwin penned the immortal line: “Summertime and the livin’ is easy”, and I’d like to think that, every year, we go some way to making your summer a little easier with our extensive range of interesting features, advice and a comprehensive schedule of what’s happening in our area in the weeks to come. This month there’s certainly a summer feel to what we’ve got in store for you – find out about summer coach trips out and sassy barbecue sauce, and we’ve even got advice on avoiding ‘post-holiday burglary blues’! Enjoy the read and enjoy the summer break and, for some of us, those exam results coming our way very soon!

Claire x

Following Claire’s musical welcome, I’ll fast forward to 1970, when Mungo Jerry were at Number 1 in the charts, with their singalong, “In the Summertime”, and the hirsute Ray Dorset would sing, “We’re always happy Life’s for livin’ yeah, that’s our philosophy”. Yes, summer is here at last, holidays are on the horizon, and I hope that you’re all finding “livin’ easy” and agreeing that indeed, “life’s for livin’”. Make the most of these long summer evenings … that rain will stop, eventually! I offer two mirthful moments this month, one an offering from our daughter, and I’ll let you guess which one is hers. When the doctor saw a piece of lettuce dangling from the patient’s bottom, he said, “That looks nasty”. “Nasty?” said the man, “that’s just the tip of the iceberg”. What did the cheese say when it saw itself in the mirror? Hallou me! Enjoy the read!

The Deepings Caravan Park

– New Leisure Centre Opens This Month If you haven’t visited The Deepings Caravan Park yet, then you really are missing a treat. Darren and Belinda Young have owned and run The Deepings Caravan Park for the last seventeen years and, with the help of their three children Rhys, Shanie and Jude, they always ensure their guests are greeted with a warm welcome. The park continues to grow and has gone from strength to strength with the introduction of a new Leisure Centre which is due to open on Saturday July 20th. A total of £750,000 has been invested so that caravan owners and their guests can enjoy the centre which will comprise of two bowling alleys (which is the first bowling venue to have the interactive bowling in this country), an indoor soft play area, arcade games, pool and air hockey tables, and a restaurant/take away. A new MUGA, (multiuse games arena), has also been constructed so that guests can enjoy football, basketball and tennis. The site is open from March until October and can accommodate touring caravans, tents and

motorhomes. Prices start from £9-00 per night, which is for their “Pensioners’ Midweek Special”. If glamping is more your style, the park has two fabulous glamping pods, with four more due next month. Prices start from £35-00 per night, with a minimum stay of two nights, three at Bank Holidays. The pods include a TV with Freeview, heater, fridge, kettle and sofa. They are very popular, so booking is essential. There is a variety of facilities and activities on offer for guests, young and old, including clubhouse, shop, kids’ play area, fishing, dog walking area, and a newly constructed crazy golf. What’s more, there is weekly entertainment including bingo on Thursdays, acts, music or karaoke on Saturdays, and a quiz on Sundays. This will be the sixth year of their “Beerfest” which is being held on Saturday August 3rd and includes live acts from 2pm.

Travel

Are coach holidays really what they seem?’ The key to a successful coach holiday is ensuring that you see the highlights of your chosen destination, as well as having plenty of free time to relax or to explore for yourself too. Our great selection of 2019 mini-breaks is the perfect introduction to coach travel, and they start from just £175pp, with plenty of inclusions! You won’t find any hidden extras; in fact, you’re more likely to find the occasional added extra, like a welcome drink at the hotel or a glass of something with dinner! In October, we’re heading to the stylish, boutique, city centre, 4* aloft hotel in Liverpool! We’ve included a guided city tour that you’re welcome to join, which then leaves you with plenty of free time to explore everything this cultural gem has to offer. In September we’ll head north for a weekend at the Marriott in Durham’s city centre, spending Saturday night at the spectacular live outdoor show – Kynren– where a cast of over 1000 performers take us on a 2000-year journey! Our Lakes & Lights weekend continues to be

The Potting Shed July is a joy as you start to pick all of those wonderful fresh fruits and vegetables; there is nothing quite like the taste of freshly picked produce or the feeling of pride that you have grown everything, or almost everything, that is on your plate. However, the vegetable patch or allotment is still very demanding and watering and weeding are key. It is time to lift garlic: hang bulbs out in the sun or in an airy shed. Fortuitously, the garlic harvest coincides with that of tomatoes. Given some basil (and a few olives) you have the makings of many delicious Italian dishes. Basil needs warm growing conditions and now is the time to plant - you can buy the pots from the supermarket and plant those out. Onions also need drying well, before they are stored: a few days before harvesting loosen the soil around the roots, choose a dry day to lift the bulbs and lay them on the ground in the sun. Don’t be tempted to store them until they are thoroughly dry as they will not keep as long and probably rot. There are always plenty of jobs to do in the vegetable patch and allotment, too numerous for me to mention here but a few tips are: Tomatoes: - • Don’t forget to nip off the side shoots of your tomatoes; they appear in the “v” between leaf stems and main stems. • When there are four or five trusses, pinch out the growing tip of the plant to allow the fruit to ripen. • Water them with a liquid feed as soon as the first fruits are formed. Likewise, for peppers. Watering: • Keep crops well-watered. It is better to water them frequently and generously, as intermittent watering can cause problems

with flowers falling, fruits failing to form, skins splitting and premature bolting. • Watering at the beginning or end of the day is preferable as the temperatures are lower and the sun not so strong. • Spreading a mulch will help to slow down evaporation and suppress weeds. General: • When climbing beans have reached the top of the canes pinch out the growing tip. • Strawberries will finish fruiting, so tidy up old foliage and cut off runners or use them to produce new plants. • Earth up brassicas to give them a firm hold in the soil and give them a top-dressing of nitrogenous fertilizer or an organic liquid feed. • Check potatoes and earth-up if necessary, to prevent the tubers going green from exposure to light. Poor potato crops are the result of poor nutrition, so try feeding potatoes with a tomato feed. • Plant out your leeks. Just dib a hole about 150mm/ 6″ deep and drop the leek into the hole. Water it in and the job’s done. You don’t need to fill the holes with soil; enough will wash in with watering and rain. The reason you plant in a hole is to blanch the stem. • Plant out cabbage, cauliflowers, Brussels, broccoli and kale for autumn and winter cropping. • Ensure that peas and brassicas are netted to keep off the pigeons. • Continue sowing salad crops.

Carpet Care: Advice from Crowland Carpets

by Dekota Cowing & Jordan MacIntosh

Picture this, you’ve paid out a small fortune for your new living room carpet, but within a few months it’s become stained and soiled and your lovely plush carpet has become an eyesore. “How do I avoid this?” I hear you ask. The key to maintaining your carpet’s appearance is to vacuum regularly to avoid particles of loose dirt and dust working their way into the carpet pile where they can act abrasively on the fibres and discolour the carpet. Here at Crowland Carpets we recommend you vacuum regularly, at least two to three times a week. Manmade fibre and wool carpets should be vacuumed more regularly in the initial period of them being laid. A large, high quality doormat will help reduce the amount of dirt from outside being spread around the house; we stock a variety of doormats, ranging from those that are machine washable to more traditional coir matting.

fibres, and eventually this will give your carpet a bobbled or felted appearance. CUT PILE CARPET Cut pile carpets should ideally be vacuumed with an upright vacuum cleaner with a beater bar and brush. You can also opt to use a cylinder vacuum cleaner with a similar attachment.

Also avoid, where possible, laying light coloured carpets next to external entrances.

SOFT DEEP CUT PILE CARPET We recommend a vacuum cleaner with an adjustable height for soft deep cut pile carpets, to ensure proper airflow over the pile surface, during cleaning.

LOOP PILE CARPET Loop pile carpets should be vacuumed with a cylinder cleaner, using the suction head only. Avoid using beater heads and brushes – they will catch and hook the

easily and simply by following our recommended guidelines below: • Tackle spillages and stains immediately; don’t leave them until later or allow them to dry. • Blot away (never scrub) all the liquid stain with dry kitchen towel or a clean white dry cloth. • Semi-solid substances should be removed with a plastic spatula. • Remember to be patient – don’t rub vigorously or over-soak the stain. • Always work from the outside of the stain inwards to minimise it spreading. • To clean off any remaining stains, blot with a clean, damp cloth soaked in warm water.

Advice

Consumer Advice

Citizens Advice – Progress on “No-fault Evictions” Citizens Advice has welcomed the recent government announcement that it will consult on scrapping “no-fault evictions” in the private rented housing sector. Gillian Guy, Chief Executive of Citizens Advice, said: “Scrapping no-fault evictions is a groundbreaking shake-up of the private rented sector and will better protect the almost 5 million households who live in it. This means renters - including families - will be able to put down stable roots where they live, and prevent landlords from evicting tenants for simply complaining.” Citizens Advice nationally helped nearly 200,000 people with housing problems last year - almost 60,000 of those in the private-rented sector. Their research found more than two in five tenants say fear of eviction prevents them talking to their landlord about disrepair. It also found that tenants who made a formal complaint to either their local authority or to a redress scheme had a 46% chance of being issued with a ‘Section 21 eviction notice’ in the following six months. They found revenge evictions have affected 141,000 tenants since laws attempting to ban revenge evictions were introduced in 2015. Nearly half of tenants (44%) who experienced delays in getting repairs done by their landlord said fear of eviction would stop them from continuing to negotiate about the disrepair. There are 1.7 million families with dependent children renting privately, according to the English Housing Survey. The Citizens Advice service in the Deepings includes  a drop-in 15 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.

How to Avoid Summer Fraud and the Post-Holiday Burglary Blues by Eileen Le Voi - Safe Local Trades WHETHER you’ve already booked a week in the sun, are planning a short family break, or have yet to grab a lastminute getaway, don’t get caught up in the holiday blues this summer. Holiday security is as important to add to your checklist as the usual ‘money, tickets, passport’ mantra. And there is plenty to consider; last year, holiday scamming accounted for around £7 million being ‘stolen’ from holidaymakers, according to research - with more than 5,000 people the victims of holiday booking fraud. Travel association, ABTA, said victims lost an average of £1,380 each, having bought bogus airline tickets, accommodation or organised tours. It said fraudsters were using increasingly sophisticated methods to target people looking for good deals. More than half (53%) of the crimes related to the sale of airline tickets, with scammers particularly targeting people visiting family and friends in Africa and the Indian subcontinent. One in four cases involved accommodation, such as payments to stay in upmarket villas which are either fictitious or are being offered without the owner’s knowledge. Spain and France were among the destinations most commonly affected. Before you click to confirm payment, here are some tips from ABTA, Action Fraud and Get Safe Online: • Check that the booking agent’s web address is legitimate and has not been altered by slight changes to a domain name - such as going from ‘.co.uk’ to ‘.org’. • Don’t just rely on one review - do a thorough online search to check the company’s credentials. • Check whether the company is a member of a recognised trade body such as ABTA. • Wherever possible, pay by credit card and be wary about paying directly into a private individual’s bank account. • Study receipts and invoices, as well as terms and conditions. • If something sounds too good to be true, it probably is! We can also greatly reduce the risk of burglary whilst away; a dark home in the evenings and uncollected mail is a sign to burglars that no one is at home. Also remember, before you go on holiday: • Set up automatic timer switches to turn your lights on when it gets dark. • Register for the Royal Mail’s ‘keepsake’ service. • Move valuable items out of view of windows. • Cut front and back lawns and trim back plants. • Don’t discuss holiday plans on social media. • Ask a trusted neighbour to watch over your home whilst you’re away. If you are considering installing or upgrading any CCTV security / lighting or alarm systems – or even changing the locks – Safe Local Trades & Services has many reputable traders who can help.

Legal Corner

Can We Avoid Complexity In Family Disputes? It is very difficult when couples are not getting on and, when all else fails, they decide to separate. Although the initial divorce procedure may soon be made a little easier by removing the concept of “blame”, the second process of resolving the finances has never been straightforward. Normally, the parties exchange documents including twelve months’ bank, building society and credit card statements, P60 or accounts; agree a house valuation; obtain a mortgage statement of funds owing; and prepare a list of other assets, average monthly outgoings, liabilities (debts) and pension values. These documents lead on to an agreed schedule of these matters for negotiations. If the negotiations fail, one party starts court action. Eventually, the matter settles. Many people do not, however, have to attend

court or commence the proceedings. Instead, they are fortunate to settle in correspondence, but this all takes time. Those that do best will have obtained good legal advice at the outset, and are frank about the need to work together to provide full disclosure in a timely fashion, sometimes shortening the process. The usual disclosure is provided to ensure nothing is hidden. However, perhaps the parties can reduce this to some extent (which does occasionally happen), although they do risk something being overlooked. This then is where the problems of divorce really

become potentially expensive. Without agreement, one party can have to issue proceedings, instead of applying for an agreed Court Order. A possible way to help is to enter a so-called “Pre-Nuptial Agreement”. However, society has traditionally responded to the concept negatively because it can look as though the parties may have “one foot in the marriage and one foot out of it”. The government is currently looking into Family Law matters and considering change.

What About Inheritance Tax? - by Matthew Biggs - Liberty Partnership Ltd

When we start out in our working lives, we all look to work as hard as we can, so we can enjoy life to the full. For some, this is going on lovely holidays all over the world, for others this is being able to treat the family, and for some it is simply the knowledge that they have earned the right to enjoy themselves in later life. And, with any luck, over the course of time we will start to accrue lots of assets, be it the family home, a nice car or, in some circumstances, an inheritance from a loved one. However, all these wonderful things could end up creating a bit of a headache in later life as they might attract an Inheritance Tax bill. That said, with careful planning, it could be possible to manage any potential Inheritance Tax bill that may come your way. Of course, one of the best ways to make sure you don’t attract an Inheritance Tax bill is to spend it! However, more often than not we see clients who want to make sure their family can also benefit from the fruits of their labour. One way of doing this is to take advantage of the annual small gift allowance, currently £3,000 per year. Or, with some trust

planning, you could ensure your loved ones benefit from your hard work without the fear that some of the assets will end up with the tax man. There are many other options out there to consider and, if you would like to talk to one of our friendly and experienced Financial Planners to explore which option is best for you, then please contact our office on 01778 342291 to arrange a FREE initial consultation.

Truth, Half Truths and Rumours – How the Man in the Pub Can Cost You Thousands by Nick Ash, Managing Director

It always surprises me how many people are prepared to take the opinion of a complete stranger as gospel truth. So many of my appointments start with, “My mate said” or, “I was talking to a guy in the pub”, and increasingly, “This woman who had a stall in the supermarket told me”. They almost always go on to describe some magical formula which involves giving away your home to your children or to a trust, to guarantee that the house can never be taken by the local authority to pay for your care fees. In reality, nobody could make such a guarantee and

anyone who does is, at best, being economical with the truth. That is not to say that there is nothing you can do to protect your assets – there almost always is – but the ‘one-size-fits-all’ simple solutions that are trotted out by the ill-advised are never the answer. A couple of years ago, a client of mine asked me about giving his house to his sons, because a mate had done it. I advised him strongly against it, pointed out the pitfalls, and told him that I wouldn’t act for him if he decided to do it. He did it anyway. Later that year, he turned up at

my office and told me, somewhat sheepishly, that his eldest son had got divorced. Because of his son’s divorce and the fact that his son ‘owned’ the house, he had paid £80,000 to his ex-daughter-in-law to buy back her share of his own home. If you want some advice about wills, Power of Attorney, care or any other aspect of later life, don’t get it from a stall in a shopping centre, or over the bar of your local - call a respected local firm with fourteen years of specialist experience. Call Will & Probate Services on 01778 382723.

In addition to practical support, we also offer information to families, and campaign for the rights of people with complex disabilities to take part in life. History of The Manor House in Market Deeping The Manor House was opened on the 10th May 1980 to provide education for post-16-year school leavers. It offered education as well as training in a variety of skills. The original house and grounds were purchased by the National Deaf and Blind Helpers League in Peterborough who let it to Sense at a nominal rent. Sense bought the property and raised money for the renovation together with a grant from the DHSS. ITV’s Magpie children’s programme then stepped in and they raised sufficient money for converting the listed house into residential accommodation, with a games room, teaching room, laundry and other amenities in the outhouses.

Are Your Feet Ready for the Summer? - Advice from the Professionals In preparation for the summer, Rachael Baker, Matthew Phillips and Amy Leverton - registered podiatrists / chiropodists at The Wellhead Practice, discuss common, everyday foot conditions and some helpful tips. Q: What is one of the more everyday conditions you help with? A: Simple nail cutting. Many patients really struggle to trim their own nails. This can be due to reduced flexibility or perhaps due to osteoarthritis of the hands which makes it hard to hold nail clippers. Even inadequate eyesight can pose a problem. At The Wellhead Practice, we offer a dedicated professional nail-cutting appointment (ÂŁ23), which is ideal if your feet are generally in good condition, and you only need a trim. Q: What else do you commonly see? A: Thick nails. Trauma to the nail bed perhaps from dropping something onto the toe or even poorly fitting shoes can cause these. Treatment involves reducing the thickness using a special drill and offering advice on things like footwear to help reduce recurrence. For example, as feet expand over the course of a day, avoiding shoe shopping in the morning may prevent you finding that your new shoes are too tight by the afternoon. Poor footwear can also cause problems like corns and calluses. Fungal nails. These affect one or many nails with a discoloured and thickened appearance and are often crumbly in texture. Treatment is by applying a topical lacquer to the nail or via oral medication. As the fungus has to grow out of the nail, treatment can take several months. Most people know that keeping your feet clean

For footcare follow the logo

is important, but drying them well, which includes between the toes, is a good preventative measure for fungal problems. Involuted nails. Here the nail curves around the edges and presses into the sides of your toe. The temptation is often to cut down the sides but this can lead to in-growing nails. Letting the nails grow and clearing out the edge of the nail with an old tooth brush, using moisturising cream along the sides, may help. A buildup of dead skin, soap, sock fluff etc can put extra pressure on the nail, causing pain. In-growing toe nails. Incorrect nail cutting, direct injury or picking at toe nails can lead to a spike of nail to grow into the flesh of the toe. Treatment ranges from cutting the nail correctly and removing the spike, to removal of the side or whole nail with surgery, under local anaesthetic, (which if needed can be performed here at the Practice). Q: Anything else I should know? A: Remember to check your feet regularly.

They take a lot of daily abuse and it is important, particularly for higher risk groups such as those with diabetes, poor circulation or lack of sensation. Consult a professional. People habitually see a dentist for their teeth, an optician for their eyes, so visit a podiatrist for a diagnosis and advice for your feet. Many patients are embarrassed by their feet, but we have seen it all and treat everyone with professionalism and confidentiality. All three of our podiatrists are experienced practitioners, members of the Society of Chiropodists and Podiatrists and registered with the Health and Care Professionals Council (HCPC). Rachael Baker brings thirty-five years of NHS and private foot-care knowledge, with an expertise in diabetic foot care. Matthew Phillips amd Amy Leverton treat a wide range of foot complaints, as well as having a special interest in bio-mechanical foot assessments for the prescription of shoe orthotics.

Local Company Undertakes Charity Electrical Work The vision of the Spalding Boxing Academy was that of the now Head Coa\ch, Stuart Possnett, a local self-employed builder. Stuart found a derelict building in Kellett Gate in Spalding, which was extremely run down. He now rents this building, and has been slowly improving it. More work is still planned but what is more difficult is that Stuart earns no money from the Boxing Club, and all the work he does is voluntary; materials are purchased either by himself or have been donated. Spalding Boxing Club is now a registered charity and hosts approximately seventy children a week. Spalding Boxing Club wanted to add a new area to use as a fitness suite, but had no electricity, so this is where Mane Services Ltd got involved. Mane Services Ltd is a small company, based in March, Cambridgeshire. The founder, Kevin Wright, has dedicated a part of this new business to helping those who cannot afford to pay for the labour to do essential works or projects that will benefit the greater community. Kevin says, “Spalding Boxing Academy has been set up by someone with a big heart and I admire what

Stuart has done for his local community, so it was an easy decision to come to help.” Kevin continues, “I have a network of suppliers, and approached one national supplier and asked if they would be interested in donating the materials required, if I myself donated all of my own time to install for free. Rexel Peterborough’s Manager, Kevin Wallace, gladly agreed and everything was supplied for free.” The new fitness suite is now all powered up and open, which we are all really happy about.

NEW EQUIPMENT ‘HIIT’S THE SPOT AS EMPIRE EXCELS by Matt Weston

July 14th sees five years of Empire Gym (A ‘five year special’ article will appear in the next issue); throughout this period, Empire Gym has shifted shape, style and character constantly. The fitness industry sees its businesses needing to watch, learn and monitor ‘fashions’ that raise people’s interests in new, fun and interesting ways of training. Indeed, the very nature of a gym means that its customers are evolving, progressing, developing and improving both physically, mentally and socially, so the gym environment itself must be as fluid and adaptable. We owe it to our members to keep things new and interesting. And we do. When we opened our doors in 2014, new to the industry, we were confident and proud of our product. The gym, its equipment, the layout.

We have since learned so much. We have always listened, learned, researched and used our intuition in selecting additions and changes to the gym, its equipment and environment that mean Empire is making progress. We always keep up with the times, but we also pride ourselves on setting trends, rather than following them. Of course, we have not, for example, ‘invented’ High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT), and we are certainly not the first gym in the world to put on High Intensity classes, but as far as I can see, we were the first in the Greater Peterborough area to be bold and brave enough to put

such classes in the gym itself, while the gym is being used by our other members. It proved to be a master stroke. Self-advertising, adding to the vibrancy of the gym atmosphere with the loud upbeat music, and because it is in the eyeline of everyone, it removed the so called ‘barrier’ and ‘apprehension’ caused by the unknown, and more and more people realised the class is for them. They realised they can. And, indeed they DO! From 16 to 86 years old, people love Empire HIIT Classes. So, this is one big development and evolution of Empire Gym. Our investment in quality equipment in the outset has served us well. It is ‘proper’ solid, reputable equipment. And we look after it, as do our members, which is important. But we’ve always looked to add more. Take the ‘Stairmaster’ machines. The big ‘Rig’ that graces the centre of the gym floor from which the boxing bags and rope pulley are tethered. The ‘Rogue’ Sled and the now famous blue ‘runway’ that takes people’s breath away! The deadlift station that is now moved from the back of the gym right into the middle of the gym environment. More people are deadlifting, squatting, clean and jerking and hip thrusting than ever before. Then there are our newest additions.

july 2019


Health

The ‘Ski-Erg’! A machine that mimics the movement used in Nordic Skiing. A perfect addition that has been made popular, famous, or indeed infamous, by the ever-increasing popularity of Crossfit and functional styles of training. It also means those with lower body injuries or barriers are able to thoroughly enjoy and test themselves on a piece of equipment that challenges and improves people’s cardiovascular condition. Next to this we have purchased an ‘Assault Bike’! The name itself speaks volumes, but its addition has again left people wide-eyed in wonderment due to the way it makes them feel. All of a sudden, there is a new level, a new echelon to be reached. New goals and new

discoveries. “So this is what true HIIT training really feels like!!!” People are feeling the effects of terms like ‘oxygen debt’ as they see their metabolisms rocket and calorie monitoring watches show their owners’ new highs!! We are also adding something called a ‘Naultilus Glute Drive.’ Nautilus is the brand. Known, respected and trusted by gym owners and gym goers alike, and the ‘Glute Drive’ movement means people can safely and properly train their glutes and posterior chain in a new way, adding to their back catalogue of techniques learned and perfected throughout their fitness journeys. In short, we never rest on our

laurels. And we never will. We will soon be tweaking and changing the class timetable, amending where necessary, augmenting and bolstering where it is already very strong. It’s always interesting running a gym. Challenging. Rewarding. Inspiring. Tough. Befuddling. Uplifting. Surprising. But that’s the joy of it. It’s real life. And if it were easy it would be boring. One thing’s for sure, Empire will always endure. Empire will always excel. Empire will always give its all. Indeed, Empire is the personification of its members. Cheers.

Matt.

My Solution Focused Story and Working with Children with Additional Needs and Challenging Behaviour “I am often asked how I became a solution focused hypnotherapist. Whenever I share my story, it always makes me giggle. I was fortunate to have an amazing birth with my youngest daughter, using the self-hypnosis for childbirth approach. A good friend and now colleague of mine, Gary Johannes, helped me build the confidence to have a home birth and faith in my body to deliver at home. Being forty minutes away from the nearest hospital in rural Lincolnshire, I knew deep down we wouldn’t be going anywhere near one, after having such a traumatic time with my first child. Safe to say my daughter was delivered by her dad in our lounge with the help of the 999 operator talking him through the process. I, on the other hand, cool as a cucumber and enjoying my birth experience, knowing we were doing this together. Our daughter arrived in her amniotic sac at the same time as the paramedics walked through the door. The midwife arrived fifty minutes later and could not believe we had achieved such a wonderful birth. There begins the story; four months later, I was on the CPHT (Clifton 44

Nothing beats asking, “What’s been good?” sat in the sunshine on a bench! Reducing anxiety with children with additional needs by using the solution focused approach is at times mind-blowing. Working out that classroom layouts cause such profound anxiety in some children that their opportunity of learning goes out of the window, and getting them to choose where their perfect seat would be – a fantastic solution which had amazing outcomes. After his mum spoke to the teacher about our sessions, she agreed to trial it for a week. He paid more attention, his class scores increased, and he stopped taking home all the work he couldn’t do in class, as he had completed it all in the day.

If only I had been allowed to bring this practice into my workplace. Not just for the children but the staff too. I took a leap of faith when I began to work with children with additional needs. I hoped that this process would have a profound impact; the reality is it changes lives. Not just of the child but the family too.

Just WOW! A little boy who does not stop, and enjoys most of his sessions playing with tangle toys and sticking his head in the massage face hole in my couch, who managed to transition

Part of the work involves my environment and fun. I talk about being a positive pineapple, no drama llama, having a box of emojis stickers and a crate of sensory toys to help with self-regulation and relaxation. Colour boxes, ceiling lights and a comfy couch with a llama blanket just add to a session. Who said therapy had to look boring?

History

Discovering . . . the High Locks

Rex Needle

T

he most picturesque spot in the Deepings is undoubtedly the High Locks, situated on that stretch of the River Welland which runs alongside the road through Deeping St James, a favourite place for walkers, photographers and even anglers who can often be seen perched patiently on the banks in all weather waiting for a bite. This was a navigable lock dating back to the 17th century, once known as Briggin’s Lock, the most complete of the twelve locks erected to improve navigation along the River Welland and constructed of stone chambers to withstand the faster flow of the river. There were wharves, jetties and landing stages along the river banks to handle the cargoes which included Collyweston slate and building materials transported from Stamford, a busy and prosperous period for the Deepings but the river trade foundered with the coming of the railways and the lock fell into disuse. The lock gates were removed in 1950 although the footbridge remains, an iron structure built in 1905 that has been strengthened in later years whenever it began to show signs of wear. A towpath also ran alongside the river for use by horses hauling barges when commercial craft plied their trade along the waterway between Stamford and the Wash but today both banks remain accessible to the public

for much of its length with a footpath on one side and a pavement on the other along Bridge Street. Both banks are now popular riverside walks which are among the most pleasant in the district, especially on a sunny summer’s day, taking in a wealth of wildlife and mix of properties with differing architectural styles together with many stone houses dating back to the 18th century. The pool created by the locks has been the scene of many recreational activities in past years, notably the aquatic sports, an annual event a century ago and although the ladies did not compete, male swimmers of all ages, men and boys, were able to demonstrate their prowess at diving and swimming although there were also a number of novelty crowd pullers such as tub and canoe races and walking the greasy pole which had been erected over the river. Health and safety considerations today mean that swimming is no longer encouraged along the river but community leisure activities continue with an annual raft race which has more recent origins and has now become a popular event attracting an assortment of homemade craft raising funds for the benefit of local charities The High Locks photographed by Rex Needle in 1998. july 2019

At first, I spotted the usual seabirds sighted on any other beach within the UK, which were fulmars and kittiwakes. And then I spotted the gannets, which were much larger, and they constantly loomed above the cliff line hanging on the wind before landing beside their potential mate. Occasionally, I came across a dip along the cliff edge where I could see the tops of the gannets’ heads, so I used the live view option on my camera to determine where the birds were in the frame. This is where one of my favourite shots of the day came from as, unbeknownst to me, a pair of gannets were performing a ‘dance’ together. So when I looked at the

back of the camera to see what images I got, I was ecstatic to see the pair appear in the frame! I was also thrilled when I saw puffins zooming past, halfway up the cliffs, and they would often rest close to the top of the cliffs allowing a perfect viewpoint to position my camera in. Other small seabirds included guillemots and razorbills, and because of their size and speed it was rather difficult to get a good in-flight shot of them, as they only allowed a window of roughly three seconds for me to focus and then panning to keep the birds within the frame!

Despite this, I came away with some successful images and would definitely regard this as a new favourite location for wildlife. I greatly recommend Bempton Cliffs for photographers and birdwatchers alike.

Deeping St Nicholas and Tongue End ...The Big Story By Andrew Clark The parish of Deeping St Nicholas, (DSN), had a prolonged birth. First, in 1846, came the Ecclesiastical parish and a brand new parish church; the Civil parish followed in 1856. Up to this time, the territory known as Deeping Fen had been, mostly, a so-called Extra Parochial Area (EPA). These were geographically-defined areas considered to be outside any ecclesiastical or civil parish; a place I could call “Nowhere”. Usually they had no governance or religious provision. EPAs were formed for a variety of reasons, often because an area was unpopulated or unsuitable for agriculture, but also around institutions and buildings or natural resources. However, the previous century had seen all that change in Deeping Fen, thanks to the ‘Adventurers’ who had financed the drainage of the fens. Newly drained land facilitated more farming, and the local population began to grow until, by mid-Victorian times, a new parish, with its own identity, was required. Queen Victoria’s reign saw an enormous amount of change and development across the nation. Deeping Fen’s share became manifest with the new parishes and the arrival of the railway in 1848, marking the start of a series of changes which would continue for the rest of the century. The civil parish was created by the Deeping Fen Act 1856. This law stipulated that the new Deeping St Nicholas was entirely within Parts of Holland, an attempt to close down the centuries-old bickering about where the Holland/Kesteven boundary actually should be. It didn’t work, and the dispute about the boundary would rumble on until 1930, when the County Councils concerned eventually reached a binding agreement. Non-conformists were busy too. New chapels were built, in Tongue End in 1864, (paid for by public subscription), and in Hop Pole in 1867, replacing an earlier independent Methodist chapel in the village centre. The Tongue End chapel was demolished in the 1980s and the Hop Pole chapel in 1922, but this one was replaced by the building we see today.

formation of the Deeping School Board in March 1874. New schools were built in Deeping High Bank, Littleworth Drove and Counter Drain Drove. Three separate primary schools in a village like Deeping St Nicholas seems over optimistic and indeed, the High Bank School was closed in 1904, only twenty-eight years after it opened. Every village used to have its pub - or several in DSN’s case. There were four inns, two named ‘beer houses’ and maybe two or three un-named ones. The pubs once in Tongue End are intriguing. It is fairly well-known that there were three, but evidence suggests there may have been two more, but not necessarily at the same time. Sadly, none are left, but most of the buildings remain, in residential use. So DSN has a varied history, very much coming alive in the nineteenth century, and it might be surprising that much of it can still be found, although scattered around in different places.

Now it’s all in one place! This brief resumé is abridged from a new book, Deeping St Nicholas & Tongue End: the Big Story by Andrew Clark.

Fleas put them on a damp piece of cotton wool, they leak red blood.

Summer has officially arrived and with it, one of the most annoying parasites that lives on our dogs and cats - the flea.

Unfortunately, that could be your dog, cat, rabbit or even yourself.

The number and variety of parasites affecting pets in the UK has changed substantially over recent years. Thanks to modern-day living with central heating, flea pupae can survive dormant in carpets, soft furnishings and between floorboards, without the pet, for up to 1 year. Lungworm has spread across the country to regions that it previously had not been seen in and a recent report found that ticks affected 1 in every 3 dogs.

To find out more or book an appointm ent, contact us today.

Call us to book your free flea and tick check, where you will also receive preventative treatment options and advice - tailored to your pet’s specific needs. To do this, we take into account the local area’s parasite make up, as well as your pet’s lifestyle, to be able to best advise you on the most suitable products. For example, does your dog swim regularly? Is your cat an indoor-only cat? Do your pets hunt or scavenge? The answers to these and other questions will help us to determine the most suitable parasite preventative care plan to keep your pet, family and home free from parasites, and the awful diseases they carry.

School News Last Term was a Great Term for Deeping St Nicholas Primary School. We launched our Breakfast Club and it’s been a great success so far. Thank you to all who have supported the club, which will continue to run on a FREE drop-in basis for the rest of the summer term. Breakfast is served between 8.00 - 8.20am and from 8.20 - 8.40am, and activities are available for children to enjoy. Deeping St Nicholas Primary School was selected as a finalist for the Lincolnshire Young Environmental Awards, so on May 23rd, two of our Year 6 pupils went to Lincoln with Mr Platt and Mrs Jones to make a presentation in front of a judging panel, explaining what we do for our environment and how we use it in our learning. We are over the moon to let you know that we were chosen as winners. The children did a superb job with their presentation and we are very proud. We plan to put some of the prize money towards some night cameras so we can catch a glimpse of the creatures which visit our school grounds at night time. One of our future projects is to build a plastic bottle greenhouse, inspired by the Eden project. In order to construct this greenhouse, we need a little help sourcing some of the building materials. We are looking for empty, plastic two litre bottles (washed with no labels please), and some wood, such as 4x4,

6 foot wooden posts, and any 2x1 posts. If anyone can help, we would be most grateful. Three of our children in Years 2, 3 and 4 were picked as winners in a competition run by Tesco in Market Deeping, during The Deeping Literacy Festival, and attended an awards ceremony on June 6th. The children had to design a book cover depicting their favourite story or character. What’s more, we also won a local community competition at The Original Factory Shop in Market Deeping. We also held a successful cake stall there on May 18th and 19th. A big thank you to all the parents who baked cakes to be sold, all the volunteers who donated their time, and all those who supported our school by visiting the stall. As a result, we raised £120 which is fantastic. All money raised will be spent on forest school equipment for our children.

Deeping St James Community Primary School opening ceremony.

Another year seems to be coming quickly to an end, but a great deal has been happening at DSJ. On a music front, we had a great Year 3 and Key Stage 1 concert, where children from as young as five and six years old were playing in groups and putting on a very enjoyable concert – one of the best yet. In addition to this, the Joint School Band, run by Mrs Young and Mrs Cross,have been on tour, visiting local primary schools and encouraging others to join in, and enjoy, music. The Joint School Band consists of fantastic musicians from across all of our cluster of schools. On a sporting front, our Year 5/6 boys and girls won our local tag rugby tournament in great style and we held an excellent, and very competitive, Olympic Sports Day, where children competed for their chosen country and took part in an impressive 64

During the Deepings Literacy Festival, the children took part in talks from famous authors like Cathy Cassidy and James Campbell, and the Reception and Key Stage 1 classes were treated to a special story time by some of the Literacy Festival readers. Thank you to everyone who organised this great festival. In addition, the Key Stage 1 children were treated to a famous poet in school, as a prize for the Year 1 class winning the ‘Premier League Writing Stars’ regional poetry competition. We’ve also had a number of school trips, including an exciting trip to Cadbury’s World for Year 5 children and Grimsthorpe Castle for the Year 4s. One date for your diary is our Summer Fete that will take place on Saturday July 6th from 11am – all are welcome! As a school, if we can be of any assistance in the local community, please let me know! Thanks Ian Wilkinson - Headteacher july 2019

African Adventure for Sports Student Ashley A Market Deeping student has travelled to Africa for a once-ina-lifetime opportunity with a little help from his local Rotary club. Ashley Bond has just completed the second year of a B.Sc. (Honours) Sport Development with Coaching Course at Sheffield Hallam University. As part of his undergraduate degree, he secured a seven-week international placement to work with young people in schools

and clubs in Arusha, Tanzania, to encourage and support sport and community development. The total cost of the trip is £2,500 and Ashley set himself the task of raising £1,500 towards that through three challenges - he gave up alcohol throughout February, scaled the highest point near Sheffield, (High Stones in the Peak District) and he ran the Sheffield Half Marathon. On hearing of his trip, the Rotary Club of the Deepings was keen to support him and readily agreed to contribute £150 to help Ashley meet his target. Rotary club president Jenny Spratt presented Ashley with the cheque shortly before he departed for Tanzania at the beginning of May. Ashley said, “I will be living with a host family, working to encourage, support and offer leadership in sport and
