Introduction

Welcome to your July Issue. Welcome to July’s issue of your favourite community lifestyle magazine. As I write, I’m full of optimism after having recently spent a whole morning visiting a host of shop owners in Bourne. Monday June 15th had been earmarked weeks ago as the day when non-essential retail outlets could re-open after twelve long weeks ‘locked down’. Still very cautious and adhering to the guidelines regarding social distance, we were able to see such relief on many smiling faces, as the light at the end of this dismal old tunnel is starting to become brighter with each passing day. Yes, it has been hell for many, with redundancies and a likely recession both being a serious threat. However, I have been so impressed with the many ways people in our area have pulled together, sharing and caring, all keen to come out of this horrible pandemic stronger than before. Those cheerful shop owners and customers sent out a message – we are now ready to get back to normal, so let’s keep on our guard, follow the advice and keep caring for each other. That optimism is tangible and hopefully reflected on many of the pages in front of you right now.

Claire x

A warm welcome to July’s issue and our first “hard copy” since March 2020. At the time of writing, Britain’s coronavirus alert level has now been reduced from four to three, so enabling the easing of even more restrictions. The nation can now move on from “Eat, Drink, Exercise, Repeat”, leaving a legacy which will remain firm in our memory. For every finely tuned, muscular “lockdown hunk”, there are well-rounded “lockdown chunks”, not to mention the “lockdown drunks.” Which one have you become? A belated reminder that June 18th every year is “International Picnic Day”, but the lockdown will have no doubt prevented too many celebrations taking place. However, as many of us (‘of a certain vintage’) may sometimes/always struggle with our computer, we can all anticipate at some point hearing the acronym “PICNIC” from one of our despairing offspring - Problem In Chair, Not In Computer! And finally, we’ve had a painter and decorator round, who’s currently furloughed as a Virgin Atlantic pilot. He made a lovely job of the landing! Enjoy the read!

Wines Worth Locating: The Winebarn

G

ermany utilises Riesling grapes to great advantage and the resulting wines have a range from Trocken (dry), Kabinett (mediumdry), through medium and sweet, to Beerenauslese (very sweet) and Eiswein (even sweeter).

The WineBarn Ltd company specialises in finding, importing and offering German wines of superb quality and elegance. Their managing director is Iris Ellmann, who is very much acknowledged and respected, and one of the UK’s first Fellows (The Riesling Fellowship), as an expert in German wines. The team are extremely proud of having been recognised as The IWC Best German Wine Merchant. Advice includes recommendations for food pairings and for any other occasions and events. The WineBarn also offers a Rare and Antique Wines Service, sourcing elusive investment wines from hidden German cellars. For this ‘quest’ I searched for dry Riesling wines. The Allendorf family have a history of over 700 years, living and working in the Rheingau region, which is home to the famed Riesling white wine grape. Their estate is recognised as one of the largest family-owned wineries in the Rheingau. ‘Allendorf Save Water Drink Riesling’ (dry) has a primary fruity sensation, including apricot and crisp apple, for the nasal senses. Continuing to the mouthfeel and palate’s enjoyment, this is a very popular, refreshing wine. www.thewinebarn.co.uk/collections/allendorf

Since the latter part of the 15th century, the Aldinger family have worked the land in the town of Fellbach. Committed and dedicated to their productions, the wines produced have exceptional quality. ‘Aldinger Rebhuhn Riesling Trocken’ I found to have very acceptable orchard fruits on the bouquet. It is certainly crisp and fresh, with a good finish on the palate. Ideal to grace many dining tables, this is another popular production. www.thewinebarn.co.uk/collections/aldinger Riesling wines are great to accompany numerous dishes of cuisine, as well as having the ability to be enjoyed on their own. These and many more excellent wines with a passion, (a good number of which are multi-award-winning) are available from The WineBarn Ltd. Ordering is easy and available online, too. Orders are dealt with quickly and efficiently, dispatching to all types of properties, including hotels, Michelin-starred restaurants, retailers, private clients, homes and offices. The WineBarn is delivering now.

Getting Ready for the

“New Normal” with Hummingbird Hypnotherapy

BY NICOLE WOODCOCK, HUMMINGBIRD HYPNOTHERAPY

T

hings are beginning to change. As the UK begins its reopening plans to get our economy back on its feet, there appears to be far more that we need to begin to think about. Remember March 2020 seems an age away; those moments of fear we all had about the coming months and being locked in our homes. The change that happened during this time has been immense. Businesses closed or furloughed staff, schools closed, daily shopping becoming a weekly occurrence and definitely not a family outing! There appeared home schooling and juggling working from home. In the beginning, there was so much to manage and adjust to, but we all did both - managed and adjusted to our new way of life. July 2020, and that change has returned; the process whereby we are all confused as to what is actually happening, other than ‘garden socialising’ being the ‘new thing of the year’! Some schools return, others don’t. Some businesses can open, others can’t. Is it any wonder that things have been overwhelming, anxious, fearful

and, at times, emotional? Add to the recipe the further ingredients… judgement, opinions, racism, consistent negative news feeds and a bundle of anger – potential brain overload at its finest! So, how are you feeling about this transition? “New Normal” as it has been named. A time to do what is best for you and your family. A time to stay safe, stay alert, don’t go out, do go out, go to work, or don’t! This is a time for personal strength, a time to reunite and share positive support. If you don’t agree with someone else and their decision, remember that’s fine; it’s not yours. Leave your judgement at the door and be happy with your own decisions. If nothing else, this year has taught me that even in our own homes with limited face-to-face contact with friends other than

via a screen, supporting each other is the way forward. In business, in choices, in your trips to the beach. Share your wins, be grateful that you’re safe, carry on being kind and smiling…. please keep smiling. We have all managed this in our own way and have started to come out on the other side, so let’s build each other up and restore each other with faith and kindness. I will have access to my office again after July 4th which I am really looking forward to - ready to deep clean and set up for social-distanced sessions. Hummingbird Hypnotherapy will be offering evening appointments from 6pm to 9pm online, Monday to Friday. I am also preparing for face-toface sessions, as soon as I am allowed to. Please keep posted for updates.

DEEP-IN AESTHETICS:

Botox Parties - Fun Evening Or Dangerous Hobby? WE ARE REOPENING ON 4TH JULY Latest news from Deep-in Aesthetics’ Julie Higgins:

We have received many five-star reviews from our clients who have remarked on our professionalism and service. Megan, for instance, wrote in February 2020, “I cannot recommend enough, so knowledgeable, friendly and just lovely. A relaxed experience/environment.”

ability to make clear, informed, uninfluenced decisions whilst consuming alcohol is hardly a sensible step!

Unfortunately, however, we have also heard from new clients about their negative experiences elsewhere with ‘so-called professionals’ in this field. Sadly, not everyone seems to give this ‘medical procedure’ the seriousness it deserves. Although unregulated, common sense dictates there is only one environment where you should have Botox and dermal filler injections, and that is in a licensed clinic.

These parties are often carried out by individuals who do not have the requisite training in aesthetics and, as mobile practitioners, can be difficult to contact post-treatment, in the event of a problem.

There have been many disaster stories, especially within the last three years, of women holding parties where these procedures are undertaken. Unfortunately, these events are organised as a cheaper option and inevitably lead to poor decisions being

Advice

“Scammers Raise Their Game During Coronavirus Lockdown,” say Citizens Advice South Lincolnshire Disappointingly, during a time when most of us are feeling vulnerable, scammers are looking for every opportunity to take advantage. Action Fraud has already reported over £5.3 million lost to scammers during the present lockdown. And this is only the tip of the iceberg…. • We are worried about our health and know that face masks, sanitizer and home testing kits are all available to help protect coronavirus spreading. Scammers are offering these things at high prices but may not provide them at all, once we have paid in advance. • We are worried about having food and being able to shop if we are isolating or shielding. Scammers are offering to shop for us – at a price. Not an act of kindness but a fraud against our purse. • We are worried about money while businesses are shut and jobs uncertain. Scammers are pretending to be from the Department for Works and Pensions and asking for our personal details and bank information. Scammers seize every opportunity. We can and should be doing something about it!

JULY 2020

Visit the website Research and Campaigns page (www.citizensadvicesouthlincs.org.uk) and social media for regular updates. Our message is that we can all help in the fight against scammers. We can take action by being aware of the scams that are out there. We can find out how to help prevent scams happening to us. We can know how to report scams. And we can all help each other by passing on information about scams to friends, family and colleagues. Citizens Advice South Lincolnshire is currently working on telephone, webchat and email. Clients are asked to use Adviceline on 03444 111444 or the Migrant Worker Helpline on 03448 476128. Alternatively use Webchat and Email via www.citizensadvicesouthlincs.org.uk

What works for one person, may not work for the next... so without this precise knowledge, anything else is guesswork. You end up jumping from bandwagon to bandwagon, trying to find the magic bullet! Pioneering and ongoing research confirms that your blood type is the single most important determinant in choosing which foods are right for you and which foods cause inflammation, digestive problems or weight gain. My concern is that many of these ‘one-size-fitsall’ eating regimes can actually be damaging people’s health. I have been a nutritionist for over twenty-five years. I have clocked up thousands of hours of helping people create lasting, lifelong health and energy, and learned that … •

by Wendy Richards Director & Trainer, Nutritional Consultant, Dip ION, Cert BTD MIFHI.

ENCOURAGING WORDS: Kerrie Owen: “I had read about eating right for your blood type but never really understood why that was important. I had despaired when using most common diets that nothing worked for me long-term. I am now committed to changing my diet and lifestyle in line with Gene Living principles and guidance.”

Sue: “Since eating for my blood type, I feel as if I have been internally cleansed and a fog lifted from my brain.”

Roy: “During my recovery from chemotherapy for bone marrow cancer, I found I was struggling to regain my energy and health in general. Despite doing quite a lot of research on nutrition and healthy lifestyle, including changing my diet by cutting out all processed foods and only eating fresh food, including a lot of vegetables, I felt I had reached a plateau which it seemed I could not rise above. It was only after consulting Wendy and adopting the blood group diet, that I saw an improvement in my health. This, in conjunction with the vitamins recommended by her, specific to my condition and blood type, has returned my health to normality.”

Empire setting a

‘Gold Standard’ in being COVID-Ready

A

t the time of writing this article, there is an unconfirmed potential re-opening date for gyms in England of Saturday July 4th. And we are working doubly hard to ensure if and when this day comes, we are ready. COVIDReady! I write this article on the assumption that July 4th is the day we will re-open. This could change. For me, it’s about three things. Absolute and laserlike attention to detail; clarity of communication

in both the messages and procedures we adopt; and it’s about people knowing that every possible mitigating effort has been taken to make you, the customer, as safe as possible, so promoting a feeling of confidence, trust and security. So, in order to demonstrate that attention to detail and clarity, here are the things we are doing to ensure Empire Gym sets what could be considered a gold-standard.

Booking Procedure: There will be a booking system. 1,020 one-hour

JULY 2020


Health training slots will be made available every week. So, twelve one-hour slots each weekday and four one-hour slots on each weekend day. Sixty-eight slots per week in total.

Changing rooms and showers will strictly not be used. People must arrive ready to train and must then immediately go home once the training hour is over. Toilets will be in use on the ground floor with strict hygiene rules in place.

People will be able to book using either the ‘Clublink’ App which is normally used for class booking or will be able to call by telephone. No gym towels will be allowed in the gym. We In each one-hour slot, there will be a have decided that gym towels are maximum gym floor capacity of just potential breeding grounds for viral and fifteen people.

Sanitisation, Cleanliness, Safety and Social Distancing Protocols: We have purchased temperature scanning equipment and, on arrival, each person, at two-metres distance, will have their forehead scanned, and anyone whose temperature is shown to be above the agreed limit, will be told to go home. Anyone exhibiting symptoms such as a cough will also be told to leave. We will stick to the two-metre social distancing rule regardless of whether the government relax the guidelines to less than two metres. We always follow the science, but we also follow our own instincts when we think that to do so will not only meet the standards but necessarily exceed them. We aspire to set a gold standard and we think anything below two-metre distancing in a gym environment would be irresponsible.

now be sanitised between using every piece of equipment. Workstations on equipment will be two metres apart wherever possible, and specially manufactured floor-standing, clear, toughened safety glass ‘shields’ will be installed where appropriate, mainly in the cardio and class areas. Wherever equipment is clustered close together and shields cannot be used, a ‘cluster’ of several pieces of equipment will be given a colour code, meaning only one piece of equipment in the cluster can be used at any given time. The safety glass shields, will be placed between cardio equipment in the ‘Cardio Zone’. People will, however, be encouraged not to use cardio equipment directly adjacent to each other and to maintain the two-metre distance. Any piece of cardio equipment can be used only for a maximum of twenty minutes, ensuring people

Health have a fair opportunity to use equipment in their booked one-hour slot. In the specific area of wearing face coverings while exercising indoors in a gym and fitness environment, we do not at this exact juncture feel that sufficient scientific and medical guidance has been given by the government to make an educated and responsible decision as to whether people should or should not wear a face covering while at Empire Gym. So, we will wait for that advice to become clear. When such explicit and specific expert advice emerges, we will respect and abide by it to the letter. There will be no cash transactions, only cards and Apple Pay. Bottles of water will be available to purchase, and we encourage people, if bringing their own water, to bring enough so not to have to refill at the gym. The water coolers will not be in use and we will not allow refill from taps in the toilet sinks.

those that are lower in intensity. At this time, we personally feel that spinning/indoor cycling classes and high intensity classes like Metafit and HIITSTEP pose too high a risk. The same applies to HIIT circuit classes which will also be held back for now. We will, however, bring two or three spin bikes into the gym space which can be used in accordance with the rules for all other cardio equipment.

As more information becomes available about whether the government will allow indoor group classes to take place, we will create a new, curtailed, ‘COVID Responsible’ timetable, that will initially only include Bodypump, Bodybalance and CoreThe only classes to be Blast (as three relatively low intensity, low movement but very effective classes available at that minimise sweat, humidity and air first will be movement and turbulence).

those that are lower in intensity.

As air conditioning is not considered to be suitable, according to the science at the moment, because it causes air movement and turbulence, it will not be turned on in the gym while people are training. However, the sophistication of the system installed at Empire Gym means we can still use it to make the environment even safer. In the fifteen minutes between every one-hour gym slot, the system will be used to exchange the air, so that fresh air is present for the arrival of the next group of people. The same principle applies to time gaps between classes. Wherever possible, the doors at the front and back of the gym will be left fully open to further improve ventilation.

Will there be Classes?: The only classes to be available at first will be

It is likely that this new timetable will take effect in the second or third week of reopening, if rules allow.

The first-floor class area has over one hundred square metres of working space and we will limit class booking to nine people per class maximum. Booking will be the same as before, if and when the new timetable is allowed to go ahead. So, it is safe to say we have our finger on the pulse. We have worked hard in our research. We are ready, and able to provide the safest possible, most innovative and COVID-responsible gym to the people of the Deepings. We have always been a business based on family values, attention to detail and cleanliness, and it so happens that now, the new global landscape is one we are instinctively ready to navigate. It is in our nature to want to keep you safe. And we will. See you soon.

Looking After Your Hands BY CLAIRE GRAY, OWNER OF RENU

T

he welfare of our hands during this coronavirus outbreak has become paramount. Your hands tell the world how healthy you are, how old you are, and how well you take care of yourself. Now, we are diligently washing and sanitising our hands, so they are certainly clean, but beautiful hands do not usually just happen. Nails and hands need hydrating, moisturising and protecting from the elements. Here are our top tips on how you can make your hands your best accessory

1

Keep them clean – Strong detergents and cleaning products can strip the natural oils from your hands that keep them youthful and healthy, and leaving them covered in dry, peeling skin. Use a good quality anti-bacterial hand wash and exfoliate your hands two or three times a week with a gentle exfoliator. We would recommend Decleor 1000 Grain Exfoliator which can be used all over the body.

2

3

Care for your cuticles – Healthy cuticles cultivate healthy nails. Make sure you rub your moisturiser into the nail and cuticle as well as your hands. Use a cuticle oil daily; this will keep the nail hydrated and promote youthful looking hands. We would recommend Orly Argon Oil Cuticle Care.

4

Problem nails – There are five different nail types so it’s very important that if you have problem nails you establish the right formula for you. Using the wrong treatment will either elevate the problem or make no difference at all. Our therapists are trained to assess your nails and recommend the correct formula for you, depending on your nails’ needs. Regular use of the correct formula will solve the problem within six weeks.

5

Moisturise - It’s the skin on the back of your hands that will become thin and wrinkly long before your palms, so apply your hand cream to the back of your hands and only use the excess on the palms. A good quality hand cream will not leave your hands sticky and greasy. Each time you use your anti-ageing cream and serum on your face, rub the excess into the backs of your hands. As you are now washing your hands so often, make a point of moisturising the backs of your hands before bed each night. We would recommend Decleor anti-ageing hand cream.

Nourish, protect, polish - Beautifully polished nails promote a well-groomed appearance and can create a more youthful appearance. A base coat is really important to protect the nail bed. Whilst the polish will help protect the nail from the elements, your nails also need time to breathe. If you can’t face showing them off without a polish, then make sure you use a cuticle oil on a regular basis and always remove polish with a nonacetone remover. If you are looking for a longer-lasting polish, soft gel polishes can be professionally applied at our salon and they will protect the nail and last for up to fourteen days. Hard gel polish will last much longer and can also be used to “build” the nail for more even or longer length. If you would like more advice on which formula will work for your hands and nails, or which polish preference is best for you, then please contact Renu on 01778 423923.

Deeping Scrubs Squad

S

Report by Co-ordinator, Natalie Lumb

igning up to sew scrubs for the NHS is so much more than you could ever expect; the volunteers are not just there to help - they are involved because it also helps them. At a time when human contact is limited, and many of us find ourselves isolated, more alone than imaginable, or in a situation we deem unbearable, scrubs have given us purpose, companionship and a drive to be part of something wonderful. As one of the co-ordinators for the Deepings area, I feel privileged to have met people from all walks of life and they generously opened their hearts and shared their stories, some heart-breaking, with me. Meeting the people that benefit from the work we have done is warming; they are incredibly thankful and full of praise. This feels almost wrong; we adopted this role because we are so deeply appreciative of all they have sacrificed and continue to do for us and yet they show us their gratitude. The NHS is bursting with the most fantastic and passionate individuals, and helping them is an honour we are proud to behold. As a team, we have been able to help hospitals in Cambridge, Huntingdon, Peterborough, and beyond; keyworkers in care homes; Macmillan carers; specialist schools and nurseries, to name but a few. In seven weeks, our team of thirty-five (alongside “Deeping Cares”) produced:

637 face coverings 272 scrub hats 132 headbands 121 ear savers 3 knitted teddies Totalling 22

545 wash bags 271 scrub sets 123 knitted hearts 79 surgical gowns 2,183 items

None of us had ever met, prior to this, but we formed a virtual community and pulled together to be part of something amazing. Drop-offs on doorsteps is the extent of our contact, whilst social media profile pictures give us a peek into what each of us looks like. We all speak fondly of a day when we can meet in person and wonder if we will be able to match faces to the characters we have come to know and care for. The “Scrubs Squad” hasn’t been exclusively for “sewists” either. Initially, when the need was at its greatest, we had generous offers from those willing to drive for us or help wherever they could; Helen, tracing out pattern after pattern for the sewing team around her position as a keyworker; Charlotte, a willing volunteer who quickly jumped aboard to co-ordinate with me and I’m so glad she did. The first few weeks were a blur between dropoffs, collections, distributing fabrics, new members arriving and needing the necessary resources to get started, and answering many questions at a time when we were still learning ourselves. Without Charlotte, I would have been drowning and we certainly hit the ground running. Within a day of joining, Charlotte and her family found themselves JULY 2020


Sue Barker’s Experience of Sewing Scrubs

with a house full of donated fabrics that needed sorting, items that needed delivering and a constant stream of requests … and they embraced it all. Then there was Gemma, who acquired a sewing machine and taught herself to sew, as she was so eager to support the NHS, despite being a keyworker herself. As Charlotte is now preparing to return to work, Hilary has kindly stepped in and is now my fellow co-ordinator; her contribution is invaluable and she has embraced the role with enthusiasm and compassion. We are still sewing scrubs and working to meet further requests in Huntingdon and Cambridge hospitals. We are also looking to get involved in more community projects, for example, the “Big Community Sew”, offering free face coverings to our local area. If you can sew, knit or crochet, and wish to join us, please search for the Deeping Scrubs Squad on Facebook, where a warm, socially distant, welcome awaits you. As part of an independent group, we cannot accept financial donations. However, we do have a wish list of items on Amazon that community groups and members of the public can purchase on our behalf. They will then be delivered to a central point for distribution to our team. You can find the details here: https://www.amazon.co.uk/hz/wishlist/ ls/248OH349EO9SO?ref_=wl Please share or contact us by e-mail at Natalie_Lumb@hotmail.co.uk. JULY 2020

When I saw the link for making scrubs, I made the decision to join, especially as it was the Easter holidays. I usually make patchwork quilts, so my sewing machine was already set up. I asked my neighbours for any duvet covers or sheets they could spare, and loads of material arrived at my doorstep. It took me a day to print and stick the pattern together and then cut out a scrub set. It took me four days to make my first set! It’s a long while since I had made clothes and the V neck was the hardest bit, (mine was a bit U-shaped!) Nevertheless, I have so far made eight sets but I haven’t got any faster as that V is still a killer! To have a break from scrubs, I decided to look at face coverings and I made about fifty. Sam’s on Rycroft Avenue are going to have them in the shop for anyone to collect. We also worked with “Deeping Cares”. Dawn Burton, one of our multi-talented “sewists”, is also a member of this group, a non-profit making organisation, founded by Anne Smart who sadly died earlier this year. Nicola Joy and Jane Hayball knew it would be Anne’s wishes to continue, due to her passion for knitting and helping others, and so organised the making of items such as mask ear savers, premature baby hats and jackets, Christmas outfits for premature babies, as well as stars. Before lockdown, members would meet monthly at Braeburn Lodge for “knit and natter”. As the key worker requests grew and branched out into knitting and crochet projects, “Deeping Cares” were incredibly supportive and created many wonderful items and are still going strong. For more information, “Deeping Cares” have a Facebook page with up-to-date information about current projects, or Jane can be contacted at jane.hayball@btinternet.com.

DEEPING ST JAMES PRIMARY SCHOOL Firstly, at DSJ we hope that you are all keeping well and safe during this most extraordinary time. It seems a whole world away from the beginning of March, when the children at DSJ had so much success at The Peterborough Drama Festival! Following lockdown easing, the school has now partially re-opened to children in the Reception, Year 1 and the Year 6 classes. We also have a group for children of ‘critical workers’ and vulnerable children in other year groups. This provision has been available since lockdown began, even opening throughout the Easter and Half Term holidays. My thanks to all staff who have made this possible.

D I S C O V E R I N G

The playground and field have been divided up so that children from different bubbles don’t mix, and parents are dropping off and picking children up from four different access points around the school. Having said all this, the staff and children have adapted superbly to all the changes and I am very proud of them all. Smiling faces seem to greet staff each morning and it’s great to have the school alive again. I am hoping that, when September comes, we will be able to open as a fully functioning school, but we will have to wait and see how things progress.

Under the very strange social distancing rules that we now all have to abide by, groups of children are now described as “bubbles” and classrooms look extremely different from the normal vibrant 24

learning spaces. The bubbles that we have in school, at present, range from ten to fourteen children, depending on the space which they are using.

As a school, if we can be of any assistance in the local community, please let me know! Take care and keep safe! Thanks Ian Wilkinson, Headteacher

Your Garden

July Gardening Tips

J

uly is a joy as you start to pick all those wonderful fresh fruits and vegetables. However, the vegetable patch or allotment is still very demanding, and watering and weeding are key. Make sure you 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 and spreading a mulch will help to slow down evaporation and suppress weeds. Also hoeing is good for water retention as it breaks up the soil and it also keeps weeds at bay. It is now time to lift garlic; hang the bulbs out in the sun or in an airy shed. 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. Do not be tempted to store them until they are thoroughly dry as they will not keep as long and probably rot. Also, early potatoes can be lifted and, if you are not using the space for anything else, a green manure can be planted, such as mustard (a fast growing crop), which will help prevent weed growth and can be dug in, when fully grown, to provide nutrients for the soil. Although it is getting late for sowing and planting, there are still a few crops that can be planted:

4 26

D I S C O V E R I N G

March T H E

Deepings

• Lettuce, rocket and a variety of salad leaves – succession sow for an ongoing supply in the autumn. • Fast-growing varieties of peas, beetroot and carrots. • Florence fennel. • Plant out your leeks. Just dib a hole about 150mm, six inches deep and drop the leek into the hole. Water it in and the job’s done. You do not 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, using the space created by lifting onions, garlic and early potatoes. • Plant potatoes ready for Christmas. Garden centres usually stock the winter varieties. Other jobs to do in the vegetable patch: • 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. • Don’t forget to nip off the side shoots of your tomatoes, they appear in the ‘v’ between leaf stems and main stems, and when there are four or five trusses, pinch out the growing tip of the plant to allow the fruit to ripen. Enjoy the fruits of your labour!

Social distancing rules apply in the same way as in other aspects of life as we currently know it. So how does this affect you if you require a tradesperson to visit your property? In simple terms, you ARE permitted to ask a tradesperson to carry out work on your property (inside and out) or in your garden. It is a personal choice on the part of the customer, so long as a few simple rules are adhered to: • As of May 4th, the government guidance is that tradespeople can continue to work, providing they are well, and that they (or no one in their household) has COVID-19 symptoms. • If your neighbour has tradespeople visiting their home, they are NOT flouting the social distancing rules simply by having work carried out at their property. • As a tradesperson or cleaner, you should maintain a safe distance (at least two metres) from any household occupants at all times, and ensure good ventilation in the area where you are working, 09:29 including opening the window. • Any households self-isolating due to COVID-19, or anyone with vulnerable occupants, cannot re-employ their workers as they risk spreading the virus, according to the government guidance. • Before attending a job, maintenance workers should contact families twenty minutes before they arrive so homeowners can prepare to keep a safe two metre distance. • Once inside, they should wash hands for twenty seconds and adhere to the social distancing rules. • Tradesmen may ask households to leave all internal doors open to minimise contact with door handles. • Face coverings have not yet been deemed mandatory but can be worn as a precaution. All our Safe Local Trades members are aware of the social distancing and other rules concerning carrying out home improvements at customers’ homes, and the importance of adhering to them. We would advise customers who are thinking about resuming work in their home to get in touch with the relevant trader through the Safe Local Trades website if they have any concerns.

Will & Probate Services

Selling Magic Beans ADVICE FROM NICK ASH, MANAGING DIRECTOR AT WILL AND PROBATE SERVICES

I

n my role on the Professional Standards Board of the Society of Will Writers, I get to see the very best, and the very worst, of my industry, especially given that my brief is to deal with complaints against members. The society has over 2,500 members and the fact that they are members tends to mean that they are the more reputable practitioners in the sector. But there is a worrying trend that I have spotted and that is the number of people who sell lifetime products or storage products to clients at hugely inflated prices. These products tend to make promises of benefits in the future that are of dubious value. Two examples that I have come across recently highlight the issue perfectly. In one case, a ninetyyear-old client was sold a lifetime storage product which guaranteed that all updates to her will would be free; she would have access to discounts on future purchases and a guarantee that the firm would only charge 3% of her gross estate to her family if they were instructed to do probate in the future. The cost of the plan - £3,000! The value in that plan was nil – guaranteeing probate costs at 3% was the company guaranteeing itself that it could charge her family an extra £10,500 when she died, for a job that should cost in the region of £2,500. Sadly, whilst unscrupulous, the firm did nothing illegal in selling her the product. Fortunately, we were able to get her a full refund in this case, but there will be hundreds, if not thousands, of people who have been convinced to buy this worthless product, especially given that the London-based firm comes up high in the adverts on Google when you search for a ‘will writer’. In the second case, a client purchased a storage product from a firm, this time registered in Peterborough. The fee was £12 per year, per document; in this case, there were no bells nor whistles, just a promise of an unspecified discount

on future purchases. On the face of it, that seems reasonable, but when you consider that the client purchased two wills, four Lasting Powers of Attorney, with associated documentation, they ended up being asked to fork out £96 plus VAT (£115.20) per year in storage fees. This is for a service that is little more than putting some documents in an envelope and keeping them in a safe place! Now don’t get me wrong, it is not unreasonable to charge for document storage; it is becoming more and more expensive for us to source secure storage space. Our ‘Foreversafe’ product charges £25 per year for an individual (or £35 for a couple) to store their documents with us. For that, you get your documents stored; we will store your deeds; give you access to a free legal advice line; and when you die (if your family chooses to instruct us to do the probate on your estate) we will discount our fee by an amount equivalent to the storage fees you have already paid us. I guess what I am saying is that when you are making a decision about who to trust with your planning, it might be worth asking them the cost of their lifetime plan or storage fees before you start. The answer might be telling! Or just call us on 01778 382723 and let us help you and your family.

TIME TO

Is Now the Right Time

I

n the past few weeks, we have seen glimmers of our normal lives returning, with schools reopening, the property sector going from being at a standstill to full steam ahead, and with the reopening of retail stores on the horizon - on the face of it, the economy is returning to normal!

the land, are reporting healthy numbers of viewings and offers are being accepted which all leads to a much-needed boost to commercial life. Over the coming months, retailers and wholesalers who supply kitchens, carpets and light fittings will join the army of previously furloughed estate agents in getting a boost.

The property market is, and always has been, an underpin to a well-functioning economy. The physical bricks and mortar are only part of the effect; aggregate suppliers at the start of the process, to tradespeople, white goods companies, solicitors, and removal businesses are all part of this process. They all benefit from, and contribute towards, the positive economic effect.

The property market is now active once more; houses are being bought and sold and mortgages are needed.

Estate agents, up and down

Lenders who had previously stopped lending because of their inability to complete valuations are now very much open for business and looking to attract you to their mortgage book, as they themselves look to the commercial uplift of lockdown easing.

T H E

Deepings

My recent experience is that we have perhaps come to terms with the fact that, this year, our holiday plans have been postponed or cancelled; we have all become keen cyclists, walkers and expert gardeners; and we have all looked more closely at our surroundings. Consistent with those estate agents, my phone has been very busy, as both new and existing clients consider their options of moving home or maybe completing that once-postponed home improvement work. Well, if you, like me, have the best-stripes-ever in your lawn, have completed the list of jobs that you were never going to get finished, and would like to consider your mortgage options, then please contact the office for a free initial consultation.

THE

“V ” WORD

“Valuation versus Value”

E

state agents’ market valuations are usually free, and because of this, it is very tempting for prospective sellers to invite a number of agents to comment and then select the agent that suggests the highest likely sale price for the property.

However, we advise caution on this issue. Some agency “valuers” are paid bonuses on the number of new instructions they secure, irrespective of the saleability of the property offered for sale at their suggested value. The easiest way for an estate agent to win your business is simply to suggest a flatteringly high figure, but many people who fall into this trap live to regret it. One of the problems is that most people have only a cursory idea of what estate agents actually do and, just as importantly, the values they cherish and what service they offer. Ironically, it tends to be the cheaper, untrained or inexperienced agents

BY PAUL BRIGGS

who quote the highest values, yet it is the welltrained, experienced agents who have the skills to secure the best prices for their clients in the most convenient timescale. So when selecting your estate agent, by all means invite several to comment on value, but then choose the agent who demonstrates mastery, and who actually has a marketing plan in place, along with superb post-offer follow-up capabilities. Additionally, find an agent that you like! One who has the integrity to offer straight­talking advice and who uses superb communication skills to keep you informed every step of the way, before, during and after the sale, thereby minimising the stress of moving. In estate agency, a high valuation does not necessarily mean you’ll get more for your property, nor does it indicate a high-value service! The agent you rate most highly will probably also be the one who suggests the correct asking price.

Mayor

Words from the (newly-

WORDS FROM THE

(newly-elected) Mayor

COUNCILLOR JOSHUA YARHAM

Following the Annual General Meeting of Market Deeping Town Council, held on May 13th 2020, Joshua Yarham was elected by the Town Council by a majority vote to become the Mayor.

F

ollowing the Annual General Meeting of Market Deeping Town Council, held on May 13th 2020, Joshua Yarham was elected by the Town Council by a majority vote to become the Mayor. He becomes the thirteenth individual to wear the town’s chains of office since Market Deeping was raised in status from a village to a town over three decades ago. The Deputy Mayor of Market Deeping for 2020/2021 is Councillor Miss Virginia Moran. Here, Josh introduces himself and outlines his thoughts and some of his ambitious plans for the year ahead: “I was born and raised in Market Deeping and have been in the community for twenty-six years. I have over the years seen it change dramatically and I would like to positively contribute to moving Market Deeping forward to new and ambitious goals. I feel that being the youngest Mayor Market Deeping has ever had brings an endless potential benefit. A young, socially-liberal Conservative, leading a Town Council enables the message of tolerance and diversity to be put at the forefront of my agenda. Unity and efficiency are principles that I will ensure Market Deeping Town Council constantly strives towards, in all the positive tasks and positive decision-making we do.

There are real investment opportunities within Market Deeping that need to be supported by the Town Council, such as another supermarket and new leisure facilities, all to bolster the imminent increase in the population, due to housing development. It means a lot to me to be part of this local community. To be Mayor is a real honour and provides a platform to give back to the community that has helped me so much. The initiative also promotes Town Councillors to be accessible for residents to communicate with via e-mail. Matters will be resolved more efficiently and quickly. During my year as Mayor, I intend to promote Market Deeping around the country as an opportunity for investment, a place of diversity and tolerance and a community that helps its fellow neighbour.”

My ultimate aim during my term is to achieve a “Digital Council”; a Council that dramatically reduces its use of paper and streamlines its use of non-renewable energy. I see unique and unprecedented issues facing Market Deeping. There has been a monumentally admirable and pragmatic approach to providing help and assistance to the most vulnerable in our community throughout the COVID-19 crisis. I help those in need where I can. The consequences of the current health pandemic have raised matters relating to the environment. Reduced speed zones in the town centre and cycleways need to be encouraged in order for the community to be persuaded to use modes of transport that do not contribute to excessive carbon emissions. We have wonderful amounts of countryside surrounding us that are there to be used! 46

Pets and Vets

Feline Vaccinations

S

ince most people now know more about viruses than they have ever wanted to, it may be a good time to learn about the viruses that can attack our cats.

In the 1960s, a virus that could evade the cat’s immune system, then slot itself into the cells of the bone marrow, waiting for the opportunity to strike, was discovered. Months or years later, the virus would take control of the cat’s cells and cause diseases such as leukaemia and lymphoma in the cat. The most vulnerable are those that get bitten regularly in cat fights and the offspring of infected mothers. Twenty-five years later, the vaccine against this disease was launched and provides good protection against infection. The virus is known as Feline Leukaemia Virus (FeLV). It is closely related to Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV) for which there is no vaccine at present. Both have many similarities to HIV virus and is of interest to human medics in their battle against this infection and the diseases it causes. Two other viral diseases are routinely vaccinated against in cats – flu and enteritis. In fact, cat flu is due to two viruses which attack the upper respiratory tract. Runny eyes and a snotty nose are the classic symptoms. The disease is mild in healthy adult cats but can be so severe in kittens it can lead to permanent damage such as chronic nasal disease, gingivitis, and

blindness. Because it is due to viral infection, there is no specific treatment, and good nursing care is needed. Feline enteritis is an horrific disease in cats, particularly kittens, where the majority that are infected die. Those that survive are very weak, vomiting and with watery diarrhoea. Supportive care with fluids and nursing can help but it is heart-breaking to watch. Protection against these diseases is by vaccination. No vaccine can give fully guaranteed protection; however, despite internet scares, vaccination is necessary in the fight against deadly disease. The only virus to be wholly eliminated from the planet has been human smallpox and that has been through global vaccination. Cats have a coronavirus of their own known as FIP. In most cats, the virus causes a mild disease with very non-specific signs such as lethargy or mild diarrhoea before it is eliminated. Very rarely, a mutation occurs within the virus and it invades the cat’s immune system and blood vessels, causing a much more deadly disease. This is particularly distressing as it usually affects young cats less than two years of age. Unfortunately, there is no effective vaccine against FIP yet. None of the cat viruses infect humans, but if we can reduce the disease in our pets and protect them from infection, then that is surely a step towards protecting the health of all species on the planet.

However, as some of you may not have seen these issues, I will be repeating some of the web addresses.

In light of the coronavirus pandemic, both Stamford Arts Centre and Guildhall Arts Centre, Grantham, have joined together to create a programme of events for audiences to enjoy at home. Poetry swaps, sketching classes and jazz concerts will all be held online, as well as a very special cabaret of local favourites, not dissimilar to a night in the Cellar Bar at Stamford, that can now be enjoyed from the comfort of your own home. Details of all current online events can be found on the Stamford Arts Centre website, with more to be announced soon: www.stamfordartscentre.com There is also a link on the website to “Arts at Home” where you will find a selection of theatre, ballet etc online plus local online events and classes. Some of their events, current at going to press: ●

Next up for discussion is: Parasite (15) - Wed July 1st, 8pm To join in, e-mail boxoffice@stamfordartscentre.com. Please note there is limited capacity per call - the waiting list operates on a first come-first serve basis for each chat. ●

L ive in the Yard: The Rachael Johnson Trio Friday July 10th

In the light of recent events, the Jazz in the Cellar Bar series is moving online, straight into the artists’ back yards! For the second instalment of their live jazz broadcasts they welcome pianist Rachael Johnson. Rachael is a jazz pianist and composer whose style is heavily rooted in Jazz and Funk, but with heavy influences of all her favourite musical styles, including Latin, Reggae and Hip-Hop. For this performance, Rachael will be joined by Andrew Wood on drums and Martyn Spencer on double bass. The musicians will be playing outdoors, adhering to social distancing guidelines. Tune in to Facebook at 8pm to catch the show; highlights will be available afterwards too. @stamfordarts. Stamford Arts Centre is part of Cultural Services, South Kesteven District Council.

BALLET RAMBERT If you enjoy contemporary dance, and the music of the Rolling Stones, watch “Rooster.” It is a complete work by the amazing choreographer and ex-Rambert dancer, Christopher Bruce.
