Introduction

Welcome to Your February Issue. This is a bitter sweet editorial. I’m sure you will enjoy this month’s Valentine’s Special which is packed full of ideas on how to enjoy, or indeed survive, the annual festival of love. I am extremely proud of how the magazine has grown, and of the team behind the scenes that make it happen every month. However, due to an unforeseen change in personal circumstances, I am sorry to say that this is the last issue of Discovering March that, for the time being, I will be editing. I will be handing over to other experienced members of this fabulous team until a suitable replacement can be found. So if you’re interested in an editing role, take a look at the advert on page 48. It’s certainly been a lot of fun, and I’ve loved every moment of my time working on the magazine. I will miss you all!

Lots of love,

And so, hold on tight, here comes Valentine’s Day! “Love is in the air/ Everywhere I look around/ Love is in the air/ Every sight and every sound”, so sang John Paul Young in 1978. However, I think these words from the French author, Antoine de Saint-Exupery, strike a more romantic tone for me: “Life has taught us that love does not consist in gazing at each other, but in looking outward together in the same direction”. Whilst you’re all “looking outward” then, I hope you enjoy the many ways in which this month’s issue stirs up those wonderful emotions. Finally, it is with much sadness that we, at Discovering March, bid farewell to Jaqui, after she has made such a fabulous contribution to the success of your favourite magazine since joining us. Her bubbly personality has brightened up many a meeting and it’s not always easy for readers to appreciate just how much hard work and dedication is called for, to ensure that something like this appears with such quality, and on time … month after month. Thank you so much Jaqui – we’ll all miss you, and wish you all the very best for the future.

Beauty

Seven Tips for those Bridal Make-up Trials -

1

By Lauren Goode

Make sure you have your trial at least three weeks, but no more than six weeks, before your wedding. Having it done too early may result in you changing your mind or your skin changing, due to weather or hormones.

2 Don’t go for anything too trend-led. It’s worth bearing in mind that you’ll have to live with photos from your wedding for the rest of your life; so it’s best to avoid statement looks and opt for something more classic. 3 If you plan on using fake tan for the big day, have a test run before your make-up trial so that  your artist can see what colour your skin becomes with the tan. 4

Bring references to your make-up trial. Start looking for images of make-up that you really like and bring them with you on the day. Try to identify what it is you like about the make-up in the image, and take into account that if you have the skin colour of Dita Von Teese, then the make-up of Kim Kardashian won’t necessarily translate onto you! 

5

Wear a white t-shirt – Remember that bridal make-up needs to have enough colour to compensate for the whiteness of the dress. There’s a big difference between everyday clothes and a wedding dress, so there should be a difference in your make-up, too. Don’t be scared of going a bit brighter. Wearing a white t-shirt will help you see what brighter colour can look like.

6

Be open-minded about lashes. I’ve had a few photographers tell me false lashes can make all the difference in their photos. Individual eyelashes are a brilliant way to make your eyes stand out and look far more subtle than a full strip. 

7

Don’t go overboard. For a lot of people, their wedding is a time when they can really take pleasure in having someone else do their make-up, but I think there can be a temptation to just indulge in the experience and try all of the make-up looks you haven’t felt confident to do yourself. I’d advise real caution here; you don’t want to surprise your fiancé at the altar by turning up looking like someone else. Also, it’s a total myth that your make-up has to be plastered on for the photographs. Lots of wedding photography is done in natural light, and if you choose a heavy base, the make-up will look obvious.

So whether you’re hiring a make-up artist or doing your own, I generally think that the best bridal make-up is simply the most exquisitely polished version of how the bride usually looks.

Have a Fabulous Day!

Health

Why is a ‘Bike-fit’ so important? by Ian Plested (Principal Osteopath) There was a time when choosing the right bike simply came down to whether your toes could reach the floor. However, with the rapid growth in people of all ages choosing pedal power, the science of cycling has become increasingly important. The more miles you plan to cycle, the greater the need to ensure your bike ‘fits’ you properly. There are three contact points – the saddle, handlebars and pedals, and your geometric relationship with all three is key to ensuring injury-free cycling. I would always recommend you check the Internet for a competent bike-fit in your area but, as a very general guide, you could start with the following: Saddle height – Adjust the height until your leg is almost straight, with your heel on the pedal at the bottom of its stroke. A bike-fit will also check the correct forward/backward position of your saddle. Handlebars – These should be at a comfortable reach, with your elbows slightly bent.

the downward ‘power’ stroke may increase the chance of injury. So, whether you already own, or are going to buy a bike, ask about an experienced bike fit – it will be worth every penny and will help you get the most out of this great activity. If you are suffering from a cycling injury, or any sporting injury for that matter, give us a call so we can get you pain-free as quickly as possible.

Pedals or cleats? – If your feet naturally turn outwards (lateral rotation), then you may feel more comfortable using standard pedals. Cleats will tend to bring your feet into a parallel stance and, if this is not a natural position for you, the additional stress produced at your knees during

The Benefits of Therapeutic Massage We are pleased to have a wonderful team of massage therapists, Deborah, Phil, and Tracy, who can offer a professional treatment to everyone. Massage can be defined as the systematic and manual manipulation of the body’s soft tissue for therapeutic purposes, promoting health and well-being. Regular treatment is the perfect way  to balance the demands of a busy life.  The benefits of massage include improved circulation to the massaged area and stimulated muscles. This can help to improve flexibility and mobility, it can dramatically reduce stress and ease tension. Massage can help to reduce headaches/ migraines, cramps and spasms, and massage is also said to improve the immune system. Aromatherapy massage uses organic essential oils, it can have both physiological and psychological effects. The combination of massage and the medicinal and therapeutic qualities of the essential oils that are inhaled and absorbed through the skin can soothe, revitalise, uplift the spirit, encourage positive thinking, and boost the immune system, enabling the body to heal itself. Swedish massage blends various techniques, to address the specific needs of the client. The manipulation of the body’s soft tissue (the skin, muscles, tendons, ligaments and facia) using the hands, is a gentle, flowing massage technique that uses varying degrees of pressure and stretching movements. It is commonly used for relaxation and improving well-being. Like Aromatherapy massage, it's great for stress relief. Sports massage therapy is used to help alleviate the stress and tension which builds up in the body’s soft tissues during physical activity. Where minor injuries and lesions occur, due to overexertion

and or overuse, massage can break them down quickly and effectively. It can help prevent niggling injuries that get in the way of performance and achievement, whether you are an athlete, or a once a week jogger. This treatment is not just for the sportsperson: anyone can benefit from sports massage, including people in physically demanding jobs, and those not quite so obvious causes, such as occupational, emotional, and postural stress, which may produce many similar characteristics to sports injuries. Pregnancy massage is available after the first trimester, it can help to reduce anxiety, back and leg pain, improve sleep, and decrease the levels of the stress hormones. Regular massage sessions throughout pregnancy are a great way to relieve these problematic physical symptoms of pregnancy. It works to support your vitality and overall health.

Charity Spotlight

The Unsung Heroes of CamSAR

C

ambridgeshire Search and Rescue, (CamSAR), is a charity that works under the radar. Due to the work it does, it often operates whilst most people are tucked up in bed. As a charitable organisation, they have been in operation for over ten years and within this time have saved many lives and brought closure to families who are not so lucky to have their loved ones returned safe and well.

They are operated fully by volunteers and provide a professional and highly skilled specialist search asset, predominantly for Cambridgeshire Constabulary, but also available to other emergency services and aid societies across the county. The purpose of their existence is to assist in the search and rescue of high risk vulnerable missing persons. Each member of their team goes through rigorous, nationally-recognised training before they are able to respond to live callouts. “We receive no government funding for the work we do so, for us, all offers of support are gratefully received and every single penny goes to running and sustaining the long-term future of our team. We are often involved in fundraising challenges that not only help raise funds but also help us raise awareness of our existence and our profile in the communities that may well need our support.” – Wayne Bent – Representative of Cambridgeshire Search and Rescue. CamSAR belongs to a national governance body known as Lowland Rescue which is part of UKSAROG, (United Kingdom Search and Rescue Operators Group), which comprises mountain rescue, cave rescue, Lowland Rescue, coastguard rescue and the RNLI. There are thirty-six other county-specific teams just like ours and we are all very proud to be saving lives and helping those in need. They have specialist search disciplines, (dogs, bikes and kayaks), that complement their excellent foot teams; and have training groups that currently operate from March, Littleport, Cottenham and Sawtry. As a team, they currently have around seventy members and the vast majority of these members have full-time jobs, families and other 12

commitments that CamSAR has to fit around. The time they give to the team is precious, which makes every member a true unsung hero. “We are always looking for volunteers and, if you would like to give something back to your community and think you have what it takes, we would love to hear from you via our website.” – Wayne Bent – Representative of Cambridgeshire Search and Rescue.

Local History

Joseph Collingwood

– By Peter Wright (on behalf of March & District Museum) His other business ventures included a new public hall and theatre, built by his father and opened in 1895, which became the Regent Theatre and Marcam Hall; the March Steam Laundry opened in 1901, of which he was chairman; and a local newspaper, ‘The March Advertiser’, which was a rival of the 'Cambridgeshire Times’, opened in 1903 in Station Road, but closed in 1915 due to the pressure of war, never to reopen His acquisition of Darthill House, pictured below, in about 1911, enabled him to build the Palace Cinema, which opened in 1912, with a row of shops on its south side, facing Broad Street. He offered to give the council a strip of land to enable Robingoodfellow's Lane to be widened to forty feet, provided the Council funded the road improvements. The geography of March just north of Broad Street might have been radically different today had the council accepted his offer. Collingwood subsequently developed Darthill Road, selling plots of land on either side. He involved himself in education, being prominent among the governors of March Grammar School and March High School for Girls, and was very supportive of the Salvation Army. He was host to General Booth, its founder, when he visited March in 1909.

John Collingwood, born in 1835, established a building business in March. His son, Joseph, was born in a cottage in Marylebone Lane on September 13th,1859. Joseph became a good athlete and rifle shot. The climax to his sporting achievements was to successfully compete at Bisley. He was also keen on cage birds and horses. He worked for his father as a joiner. His own business career as a house furnisher, specialising in earthenware and china, was founded in 1884, as J. Collingwood and Son. He began to sell these by auction, thus beginning a thirty-seven-year spell as an auctioneer – eventually dealing in house and land sales. He was much involved in the development of housing in Badgeney Road, New Road and Elwyn Road.

When March Urban District Council was established in 1894, he was elected as its first chairman. He became a county councillor in 1895 and was a keen advocate for a road bridge at Guyhirn, although this would not be built until after his death on August 27th, 1921, aged 61.

Beware of Financial Agreements on Divorce without a Clean Break Order – by Rebecca Woodley

Rebecca Woodley, a family solicitor at Fraser Dawbarns and member of Resolution, talks about the importance of getting a Clean Break Order in the case of separation and divorce. I give every client I see in relation to divorce the same advice, a divorce does not end financial claims. To guarantee that neither party can make a further financial claim on the other, a separate application must be made for a Clean Break Order. Providing the parties are agreed, this is a paperwork exercise so nobody needs to attend court. We prepare the paperwork which is approved and signed by the parties and the lawyers. The cost is usually based on the solicitor’s hourly rate and there is a court fee of £50. The other party does not have to be represented but often requires some advice and this is recommended. In some amicable separation cases, the parties agree to wait until they have been separated for two years before proceeding with the divorce. They agree on the arrangements for the children and they agree financial matters. The house may be transferred to one party, with the other party receiving a lump sum. No solicitors are involved and everything is dealt with by agreement. The problem with this is that the agreement is not legally binding.  I have recently seen a client where this is exactly what happened. The wife kept the house and paid the husband a lump sum, assuming the husband could not come back for more. Unfortunately, the

way they calculated the husband’s lump sum was not in accordance with the way the court would deal with it. The value of the property had also increased over the last two years, putting the wife in a better financial position than the husband. Also, the husband had not invested well; he had not purchased property and his lump sum had reduced, leaving the wife in an even better financial position. The husband instructed solicitors in relation to the divorce and was advised that the financial agreement was not legally binding and he could claim a further lump sum from the wife. With no Clean Break Order in place, the husband applied to the court for a further payment. The wife was understandably distressed. She thought she owned the house outright with no further claim by the husband possible, but she has now agreed to pay a further lump sum of £35,000. When a relationship breaks down, many people are concerned that instructing a solicitor will be expensive and that it could worsen the situation. They believe it is more amicable and preferable to reach an agreement without involving a solicitor, but the very opposite is often true. Fraser Dawbarns will represent your interests. In many cases, we will just advise on the agreement the parties have reached themselves and help to make that agreement legally binding. Our clients then have peace of mind, knowing that the other party cannot make any further claims against them or change the agreement.

Home Interiors

Calm Perfection - by Interior Designer, Yasmin Chopin As a symbol of romantic love, a heart is  at the centre of our emotions. We start to draw the shape early in childhood, its warm glow spells love. As we grow older the symbol signals different moods; strength, vitality, devotion. Some say that it was first associated with sex before it became the favourite for romance. Today the symbol is used everywhere; as ubiquitous in the home as it is in text-speak. I think we still find the shape pleasing, the heart is not hackneyed but lives on. We crave the comfort of the message it conveys, we enjoy its harmonious proportions, it has symmetry. There's a sense of calm perfection in the achievement of symmetry. Symmetry is mathematical. Aristotle is attributed as saying, 'The chief forms of beauty are order and symmetry and definiteness, which the mathematical sciences demonstrate in a special degree.'  Through the ages, architects designed houses and drew floor plans to create symmetrical spaces; a building with walls of equal length, an even number of windows and doors, everything followed in sequence. When you look at some of our stately homes you notice this hankering for perfection. It was often a driving factor in their design yet, even when money was no object, it was difficult to achieve.  We can create small areas of symmetry with great success, but I know many people wish for a room with classical proportions, an even shape, with two windows the same size. Planners today don't build houses like this and, even if you live in an old house, you rarely see a symmetrical room. As our children practise drawing a heart with two sides of equal proportions, we appreciate their efforts. The desire for symmetry is deep-rooted. Image credits: Finch & Crane (hearts image) KOKET (cabinet image)

Local History

March Guildhall – by Jennifer Lawler

B

y the early 19th century, March had several valuable charities. The four most important were Neale’s, founded 1696, whose estate rents provided a schoolmaster; Wade’s, founded 1713, which paid a schoolmaster and for child apprentices; the Guildhall building in High Street with a yard; and Fringe’s, founded 1575, for the benefit of the poor. It was decided to apply to Chancery to regulate the charities and their estates. On March 4th, 1826, it was declared that the four charities should be consolidated with fifteen trustees, and that they be authorised to take down part of the Guildhall used as the workhouse and rebuild a suitable building to educate 200 boys and 150 girls as a national school on Dr Bell’s plan, and residence of a master and a matron at a cost of £1200. The remainder of the building should be used as a vestry or public meeting room for the parish. The rest of the estates should be let for the most money. The trustees, with the rector and churchwardens, would elect a schoolmaster, schoolmistress and usher, to teach Latin and English and arithmetic. The salaries for the schoolmaster and usher together would not exceed £140 per year: £100 for general schooling and £40 for the Latin schoolmaster. Every year, two or more poor March children would be selected and bound out as apprentices and the trustees would pay a premium not exceeding £60 per year. The fine new Guildhall, now Cassanos, was built in High Street, in 1827, with a pavement of Yorkshire stone, and gave a ‘spirit of improvement’ to March. Discussions took place to build a brick archway over the Hythe sewer in High Street to improve the health of townspeople.1   

The post of Mistress to manage 150 girls in the charity school was advertised with a salary of £50 per annum and occupation of a house, with permission to take fifteen additional scholars. Only those with the ‘most respectable testimonials’ were to apply.2 The public rooms were used for manorial courts and public meetings.

The building is of brick with a band between ground and first floors and the walls have been rendered. It has a central block with three windows on the first floor, and a wing at each end, used for the school, left for girls and right for boys. The doors and windows on the ground floor and the arched windows and doors on the sides of the wings have been changed as the building changed use several times. 1

Valentine’s Day Special

- The Top 10 Aphrodisiac Foods (DO try this at home!)

The food you consume can have a direct impact on your sex life, affecting your hormones, brain chemistry and energy and stress levels. Some foods have psychoactive properties, others arouse because they are psychologically suggestive, and some can actually increase blood flow to the genitals.

10

ASPARAGUS

An English herbalist from the 17th century, Nicholas Culpepper, wrote that asparagus “stirs up lust in man and woman.” It is a great source of potassium, fibre, vitamin B6, vitamins A and C, thiamin and folic acid.

9

ALMONDS

Throughout the centuries, almonds were regarded as fertility symbols. The aroma of almond supposedly arouses passion in females and provides high doses of vitamin E, magnesium and even fibre.

8 AVOCADO

Its shape gives it away! The Aztecs called the avocado ahuacuatl, or “testicle tree”, seeing the fruit hanging in pairs on the tree as resembling testicles. Avocado is rich with folic acid, vitamin B6 and potassium.

7

BANANAS

By its shape, the connection with sexuality is quite obvious, but bananas are loaded with potassium, magnesium and B vitamins. It also contains chelating minerals and the bromeliad enzyme, said to enhance the male libido.

6

BASIL

Basil has a fantastic aroma that is said to have an aphrodisiac effect; it is also very stimulating. Using sweet basil in a pasta sauce will be sure to get your heart racing! F E BRUA RY 2018

CHOCOLATE

FIGS

GARLIC

OYSTERS

Pure chocolate, the king of natural aphrodisiacs, contains a host of compounds including anandamide, the psyochoactive feel-good chemical, and PEA (phenylethylamine), the “love chemical,” which releases dopamine in the pleasure centres of the brain and peaks during orgasm.

Figs are steeped in history, being mentioned in the Bible (Adam and Eve wore fig leaves to cover their private parts), whilst the ancient Greeks held them as sacred, associating them with love and fertility.

Very strong smelling and perhaps a bit of a turn-off, but likely to provide added strength to the male, as the allicin in the garlic will increase levels of blood flow in vital regions!

Oysters may be thought an aphrodisiac because of their high zinc content, which helps produce sperm and increases libido. Raw oysters are best served with a glass of chilled Champagne for a truly romantic meal!

1

HONEY

Honey is a great source of boron, a trace mineral that helps the body use and metabolize oestrogen, the female sex hormone, and this mineral may also enhance testosterone levels in the blood, the hormone responsible for promoting sex drive and orgasm in both men and women.

What is Love? – by Holly-Jean

Love is probably the trickiest thing to describe in the world. It’s in everyone, somewhere, but just not everyone finds it. And, that sounds super cheesy but hey-ho it’s Valentines, so grab your bucket and keep on reading – it’s about to get smooshy. Love is supposedly patient and kind. Romance apparently has a lifespan and though the majority of us seek it, most of us are actually quite confused about what ‘love’ actually means. And, as I’m writing this, I’m googling ‘what is love?’ but, it isn’t something you can actually put into words. I’m reading – “love is without judgement” and “love is loving everything that one person does”. And the cynical part of me is thinking, “Well yeah, I love my boyfriend but do I judge him when he eats his dinner, and mine too? Yes, I love him, but my god if he snores one more time I’m just... I’m just going to lose it.” All of these different depictions of love make us question everything we know; all of these opinions and different ways that people conduct their relationships and rules and stipulations - in reality, it’s all absolute rubbish. They make us question whether we are doing the whole ‘love’ thing right! But for what? You and your partner, whether they’re human, imaginary, or cat. (Whatever floats your boat, it’s 2018). Are you both happy? Whether they can be gross, or they wind you up sometimes, or sometimes you literally want to tear their perfect little head clean off – if you love them, you will just know. It will literally hit you one day when they’re laughing or even when they do the stupidest thing. It won't be a gift or

an occasion; it will be so minuscule and ridiculous that you cannot even describe it – but when you know, you’ll know. Alright, this is getting crazy soppy now and I want to be funny so, let me add this little bit. Over the Christmas break, I got a little podge – not much, but a little. And I’d recently had my nails done, so I was struggling to do my jacket up. And I said to my boyfriend, “Tom, I’m finding it so hard to actually do my jacket up at the moment!” and he remarked, lovingly, with “Well Hol, you’ve had a lot of cheese and biscuits this holiday.”  My caring partner, ladies and gentlemen. I’m joking, not about what he said, it’s with me for life, but in all seriousness, and it sounds so cheesy, but I absolutely adore the big idiot. He can be infuriating, but he’s my best friend, and no matter how many times I imagine his head exploding, I could never thank him enough for showing me what love is. But I’m only on about love between partners. Love is everywhere – love is when your mum tells you to put a coat on so you don’t get cold, or when she’s way too honest about something you didn’t really need to hear. Thanks, mum! Love is packed into this strange world in little ways we couldn't even comprehend. And, I think that’s what makes it magical. This February, when you’re sick and tired of Valentine's, have a little think about not just buying someone something to prove your love, but just show them in little ways... be patient, be kind. Be everything you think love is, and I’m sure you’ll work it out. Or, the less conventional way of dealing with Valentine's – eat your bodyweight in chocolate... you got this. FE BR U A R Y 2 0 1 8

Burrilliant Creations

Made with Love

Home is where the heart is, and this decorative fabric hearts bunting is sure to help you spread the love for Valentine’s Day. Whether for yourself or a loved one, Kathryn Burr at Burrilliant Creations takes us through how to make this heartfelt gift: All you need is love, and a few craft supplies. • Sewing needle, thread, and fabric pins. • Fabric for 10 bunting hearts (such as colourful, patterned craft cotton). • 10 x 14cm slender ribbons (to attach to the hearts). • Thicker 2m long ribbon (to hang the bunting from).

Step 3 • Sew each of your hearts, with the seam 1cm from the edge. (You can also sew this by hand, looping your needle and thread up and down through the fabric to create a running stitch). • Leave a 3cm gap in one side of each heart to place the stuffing in.

Step 4 • Stuff each of the hearts until plump, and then sew the gap shut.

• A piece of card (for a heart shape template).

• Tie knots in the loose thread and, for a professional finish, sew this thread through the heart and trim the excess.

• Soft polyester stuffing (fabric scraps or even cotton wool works just as well).

• Trim the edges with the pinking shears to neaten the hearts.

• Pinking shears (creates a decorative crimped edge and stops the fabric from fraying).

• Loop the long ribbon through the heart ribbons, one at a time, leaving a 15cm gap at both ends and inbetween each heart.

Step 1 • Create your card heart template (14cm wide, 14cm long). • Lay your heart template on the fabric and cut two pieces for each heart.

• Place the two pieces for each heart together, with the fabric pattern facing out on both sides. • Make a loop with the slender 14cm ribbons and place 2cm of the tips inside the middle dip of each heart, and pin in place. This will create the ribbon loop for the hearts to hang from.

D I S C O V E R I N G

• Tie a knot in the main long ribbon around each of the smaller ribbons to keep the hearts in place. • Repeat until all 10 hearts are tied onto the main ribbon. Your bunting is now all ready to proudly display, or to be given as a beautiful gift for a special someone this Valentine’s Day!

Property

New Rules for Portfolio Landlords - by Mike Ellis

Investors with four or more mortgaged buy-to-let properties now face more stringent checks by lenders when buying additional properties. Since the end of September 2017, new portfolio lending rules issued by city watchdog, the Prudential Regulation Authority, mean that lenders must look at a landlord’s entire property portfolio when deciding whether to offer an additional buy-to-let mortgage.

and experienced financial advisor to help you through this process is a strong advantage. Lenders will need to know about the existing mortgages already in place, the amount of rental income each property in the portfolio brings in, along with any expenses and maintenance costs. They are also likely to look at your assets, liabilities and cash flow. This is so they can carry out an assessment of affordability right across the portfolio, to be certain that they won’t be over-exposing themselves financially, by increasing borrowing. For the very best advice and information, call us on 01354 701000 or 694900.

In The rules have been introduced to provide lenders with greater certainty that landlords will be able to afford any additional borrowing they take on. Many lenders have confirmed that they will continue to provide buy-to-let mortgages to portfolio landlords, although they will require much more information about their existing properties before they will accept a new application. Some lenders have been put off, following the rule changes, and are now only looking at re-mortgaging existing properties on a like-for-like basis.  What can portfolio landlords do to prepare? Landlords with multiple properties who are planning to add to their portfolios can help speed the mortgage application process along by making sure they have all the information lenders will require ready in advance.

Matters HELPING TO STOP THE SPREAD OF JAPANESE KNOTWEED Fenland District Council is raising awareness of Japanese Knotweed, to help homeowners identify, control and dispose of Britain’s most invasive plant – and help stop it spreading. The plant can grow as much as twenty centimetres a day and has a root system that can extend three metres in depth and seven metres in all directions; growing into building foundations and drains, causing serious structural damage. Responsibility for controlling Japanese Knotweed rests with the landowner or occupier of the land. You do not have to remove the plant from your land, but you could be prosecuted if you allow it to spread onto someone else's property. People can follow the following advice to help identify Japanese Knotweed on their land, and manage and deal with it in the right way: Identifying Japanese Knotweed: • produces fleshy red tinged shoots when it first breaks through the ground. • has large, heart or spade-shaped green leaves. has leaves arranged in a zig-zag pattern along the stem has a hollow stem, like bamboo. • can form dense clumps that can be several metres deep. • produces clusters of cream flowers in late summer. • dies back between September and November, leaving brown stems. Getting rid of Japanese Knotweed: • Do not try to cut the weed down, mow or strim, as this will make it spread. • Please do not put Japanese Knotweed in your green bin (normal household waste) or brown bin (garden waste), or take it to a recycling centre – it must be disposed of as controlled waste. 38

• For more advice on how to control and dispose of Japanese Knotweed, including chemical spraying and burning, visit: www.gov.uk guidance/prevent-japanese-knotweed-from spreading. The site also contains a link to local controlled-waste carriers who can dispose of the weed legally. If you're concerned that Japanese Knotweed on your neighbour's land might spread onto your land, try and speak to them; they might not realise it is an issue. You can also report it to Fenland District Council www.fenland.gov.uk/ parksandopenspaces. The Council would also welcome information on locations of Japanese Knotweed on its land and open spaces, so action can be taken.

FALLING IN LOVE WITH READING Cambridgeshire Libraries are delighted to announce that they will be launching an exciting free course for parents and carers to help you foster a love of stories, books and reading with your child. ‘Falling in Love with Reading’ is a short, (three week), FREE course for parents and carers of children aged from three to seven years.

The sessions will be delivered by fully trained library staff with supporting book collections, specially curated by their colleagues in Adult Learning and Skills – for course participants to borrow, to continue their learning at home.

“Being able to get out and use our leisure centres also enables patients to socialise and make new friends while improving their health.” Health professionals can refer patients over the age of sixteen years of age with any of the following conditions:

HELP IS ON HAND TO GET HEALTHIER IN 2018 Fenland residents are being reminded of the district’s GP- supported exercise scheme to help people with various medical conditions kick-start a healthy New Year. Individuals with conditions such as diabetes, obesity and mental health, are being urged to talk to their local health professional about the Exercise Referral Scheme to support them to become more active and lead healthier lifestyles. Delivered by Fenland District Council’s New Vision Fitness leisure centres, Exercise Referral is a 12-week, personalised fitness programme that can be prescribed by GPs and other health professionals, to manage certain health conditions through exercise. Programmes may include exercise classes, gym-based workouts, water-based exercises and condition-specific sessions, and can be undertaken at any of Fenland’s four leisure centres. Patients will have the help and guidance of specially-qualified exercise professionals throughout the course. In the last two years, the programme has helped more than three-hundred people referred from local services, with the majority reporting that they felt healthier following the programme. Success stories include people helped back to fitness after operations, and those who have gone from sedentary lifestyles to becoming active gym members. Councillor Mike Cornwell, the Council’s Portfolio Holder for health and wellbeing, said: “The referral scheme supports us in our aim to reduce health inequalities in Fenland. It not only helps control some health conditions and limit the regression of illnesses but also reduces the number of visits needed to GPs and hospitals and reliance on medication, therefore reducing the cost to our NHS. F E BRUA RY 2018

• Diabetes (Type 1 & 2) • Obesity (BMI >30) • Cardiac Rehabilitation • Hypertension • Mental Health • Respiratory (including Asthma) • Smoking Cessation • Multiple Trauma/Injury • Muscular Skeletal • Neurological GPs and health professionals can also refer patients with other conditions that they feel would benefit from the programme. The Exercise Referral programme is subsidised by the Council and remains the cheapest way to access the leisure centres. It costs £24.50 a month on a three-month course agreement, (normal anytime membership costs £40.50 a month), with no joining fee. Cllr Cornwell added: “We would urge anyone wanting to be referred to the programme to speak with their GP or health professional to discuss it in more detail. “We would also like to see more health professionals take advantage of the programme. The benefits for the health and well-being of our communities are numerous.”

SUPPORTED LODGING SCHEME

Cambridgeshire County Council Fostering Service has just relaunched its Supported Lodgings Scheme. If you can provide a young person with a spare room, annexe or similar accommodation in your own home, they want to hear from you! Supported Lodgings carers also offer advice and guidance to help young people who are leaving care to prepare for independent living. You can combine this role with full-time employment, and an allowance of £250 per week is paid to carers while they have a young person placed with them. For more information, please call 0800 052 0078 or visit www.cambridgeshire.gov.uk/supportedlodgings.

Do I Have to Use the Property Lawyer My Estate Agent is Recommending? By Michelle Rickard, PDR Property Lawyers

This is something I hear on a daily basis, and the quick answer is ‘no’. When your estate agent recommends a conveyancing solicitor, licensed conveyancer or property lawyer, it is likely the firm they are recommending are paying them a ‘referral fee’. This fee, which can be in the hundreds of pounds, is usually passed on to you, the client. Read the small print before you sign any agreements! Every law firm should detail how much they receive from the estate agent for passing business to them. The Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) and the Council for Licensed Conveyancers (CLC) have a strict referral code. Solicitors and licensed conveyancers are required to set out a full quotation which details their fees, the disbursement costs and associated expenses with your transaction. They are also required to reveal how much they paid for your referral, and I suggest you ask them for details of the referral fee they have paid for your (potential) custom. In addition to checking the amount of money you, the client, are paying for your referred business,

I strongly recommend that you get at least three quotes for your conveyancing. Fees for leasehold and freeholds within different valuation brackets can vary widely. Also search for reviews of the firms you are interested in working with. In summary, when buying or selling a property it is vital that you appoint a lawyer that you can trust to act in your best interests; one who will have the experience to complete the transaction properly and in a timely manner, and who will charge you a fair price. Everyone has the right to choose their own lawyer. Both the SRA and the CLC rigorously state that its members are meant to ensure that their client has chosen them to act without pressure being exerted upon them to do so. If you are being pressurised into choosing a lawyer as outlined above, refuse firmly and advise that you will seek the advice of the SRA or CLC – this usually does the trick!

Club Spotlight

March Lions Club

I

n 1917, in Chicago, Illinois, a businessman called Melvin Jones challenged likeminded businessmen to “reach beyond business issues and address the betterment of their communities and the world”. Shortly afterwards, in June 1917 they joined together and the organisation we now know as Lions Clubs International was born. Since then, the organisation has grown to have over 1.4 million members in 46,000 clubs in 400 countries worldwide.

In 1976, a group of March people joined together to charter a March Club and join the organisation. Since then, March Lions Club has been privileged to work in our community and throughout the world. In the early days, there were lots of jumble sales, dances and community events including a Special Olympics, and ‘Wheels and things’, a Motor and Transport Show. In the early 1990s, and with the fall of the Iron Curtain, March Lions were some of the first to make numerous visits to Romania, taking medical aid and clothing to those that needed it most and all supported by the people of March. March Lions reintroduced a summer gala and parade, and this now continues as part of the Summer Festival weekend, with the March Lions continuing to sponsor the Festival Princess. In 2017, we held the inaugural Soap Box Races. Entries are welcome for 2018 but spaces are filling up fast. We still collect used spectacles which are sent to Eyeglass Recycling Centres for grading and processing, and then on to optical missions around the world, and we now also collect used hearing aids. The Lions Club International Peace Poster competition is enjoyed every year by many local children, and we hope one day that an entry from a March child will make the international final with its $5,000 prize. March Lions also have a story-writing competition for children of primary

school age, and we are pleased to be working with all March schools this year and are looking forward to reading more imaginative stories in the summer. During the Christmas season, March Lions are always pleased to help Santa visit many areas of March, as well as making appearances at some supermarkets and other town events. In the coming weeks, we will be presenting Lions Young Leaders in Service Awards to twenty young people from March in recognition of their work for their community. March Lions use locally-raised funds to support local organisations and, over the years, have donated tens of thousands of pounds to community schemes and groups. And so it goes on. Today, March Lions are proud to continue the work started by our early members, with just one of those Charter Members from 1976 still active within the club. But most important to March Lions are the people of March, who have continued to support us for over forty years and without whom we could not do what we do. We are always looking for new members or returning ones.

Wisbech Grammar Sixth Formers Selected to Play for The Lambs 1st XV Captain and Vice-Captain, Oliver Mann and Bradley Hutler, alongside the 1st XV full-back Jack Trundley, have been selected for the Independent Schools RFC U18 National XV (The Lambs). The Lambs exists to create openings for boys to showcase their rugby skills at a representative level, and during the season the boys will compete in a tough fixture programme both at home and abroad. They will face a mixture of Academy sides, such as Premiership Champions Exeter Chiefs and Gloucester Rugby, representative sides such as Crawshay's Welsh and Irish Exiles and international sides such as Croatia U19s and Italy U19B while on tour. The freedom to express talent, unfettered by league results and structured 'coaching,' leads to a style of play which excites players, their parents, and supporters of the game.

The Independent Schools RFC was set up to promote traditional rugby values and a 'Corinthian' spirit as their style: this is to play unreserved 'heads up' running rugby in a fast and expansive style, which is player rather than coach-led. Phil Webb, Director of Sport at the school, said: "I am delighted for the boys, as they have worked hard this season and their efforts have paid off."

YOGA AT MARCH COMMUNITY CENTRE Yoga is an ancient form of exercise and relaxation. Each yoga session is made up of the following elements:

• A short time for relaxation and to unwind. • Performing yoga postures whilst using the correct breathing techniques. • A final relaxation period. Our aim is to relax the mind and body through gently, but progressively, stretching all parts of the body whilst using the correct breathing techniques. This will be carried out in a warm, relaxed and peaceful environment. Our classes are held at March Community Centre: Tuesdays 6pm-7.15pm Wednesdays 10am-11.15am For further information, please call 01354 750383.

1ST DODDINGTON SCOUT GROUP Our Group has three active sections, (Beavers, Cubs and Scouts), with young people aged from six to fourteen. We give our members the opportunity to learn skills for life, enjoy new adventures, experience the outdoors and develop to their full potential. At the end of the last term, our Beavers hiked and experienced cardboard caving, our Cubs experienced archery, courtesy of Parkfield Archers, and the Scouts tried scuba diving and snorkelling. Each week, the sections meet in our Scout Hall in Doddington, which is in need of repair, so we have embarked on a fundraising campaign to try to raise the funds needed. In November, the Scouts kick-started our efforts by car washing at the Askham Christmas Fayre. In December, all sections came together and sang Christmas carols outside Sainsbury’s. We had a great start to 2018 when we challenged ourselves to walk the Woodman’s Way and our next event is a Table Top Sale on February 3rd, 2018. To keep up to date with our activities, please like our Facebook page: www.facebook.com/ DoddingtonScouts

Consumer Advice

Simple Steps to get your Finances in Order – Professionally and Hassle-free! THERE aren’t many of us who particularly enjoy talking about financial planning (unless of course it’s our chosen career path!) – and perhaps even less of us who fully understand the many courses of action available. Financial planning is an ongoing process to help us make sensible decisions about money that can, ultimately, help us achieve our goals in life. It’s not just about buying products like a pension or an ISA. There are many decisions which we have to make during the course of our lives and, at significant life stages, that means carefully planning our cash.

Deeping March

There’s choosing the right mortgage, saving or investing for our family, and protecting them in the event of the unexpected, and let’s not forget about planning for later life and retirement. There is also the legal side to consider. It may be a surprise to know that – according to research – one in four people aged fifty-five and over do not have a will, a legal document which determines who receives your assets and estate when you die. And, while many of us don’t feel comfortable about talking openly on the subject of wills, or Lasting Power of Attorney, a greater understanding of the process and banishing the taboo could prevent your affairs being left in the hands of strangers when you die. Will-making is certainly not just a thought that should be reserved for the older generation. In fact, making a will or an LPA while younger, healthy and of sound mind can allow you to get your finances in order and continue to enjoy your life – knowing that things will be taken care of when you are not long able to, or have the mental capacity to do so. Other important topics can include wealth preservation, inheritance tax and planning/ paying for your funeral. So, with all this to think about – as well as constant changes in legislation – where is your first port of call for advice and help? As the sister company of the highly successful and respected “Safe Local Trades”, the relatively new and fast-growing “Safe Local Services” has members who are experts in all these financial fields, each offering a professional and friendly service to customers in and around the PE postcode area. If you would like to find a service to suit your particular needs and requirements, simply search by visiting www.safelocalservices.com or telephone 0800 014 1832. FE BR U A R Y 2 0 1 8
