Introduction

Welcome to Your June Issue. Welcome to our third on-line version of your favourite community lifestyle magazine. Spring has come and will soon be gone, with some signs that normality is not too far away. Optimists are seeing some hope, as certain restrictions are being lifted, and some children may be edging slowly, and very carefully, back to their classrooms. Some businesses have returned to pre-lockdown working, whilst many are still anxiously playing the waiting game. Let us all hope that the damage, inevitably done to many firms, large and small, during the lockdown can soon be repaired and that high streets will soon be buzzing again. Whatever we may be going through, let us all remember that June 21st is Father’s Day and the opportunity to shower that special one with “virtual hugs” and gifts. To my dad and to my husband Chris I send all my love. Keep healthy everyone and stay safe.

Claire x

First of all, I hope you are all keeping well and, more importantly, safe during the current coronavirus (COVID-19) epidemic. The past few weeks have been so strange as we have all kept our distance from our friends and, often, family. Hopefully, there are encouraging signs that we may be winning the battle against COVID-19, but we know we are in it for the long haul as we have to be mindful of future flare-ups. These unprecedented times have in some cases impacted not only on many people’s physical, but also in some cases mental, health as the burden of isolation has been hard to bear. Fortunately, the weather has recently been great and has allowed many of us to go into our gardens to take the sun. Let us hope that life soon returns to some sort of normality so that we can all enjoy the rest of the summer together outdoors. Finally, on behalf of the people of March I would like to congratulate former town businessman Captain Tom Moore for raising more than £32 million for charity by walking laps of his garden and being honoured with a knighthood and made an honorary colonel on his 100th birthday. What a fantastic achievement by an amazing man…

Your Garden

June Gardening Tips

J

une is one of the busiest months of the year for the vegetable gardener: there are crops to plant, sow, and harvest, weeding, watering, feeding, getting rid of pests – the list seems never-ending. You really do need to keep on top of all these jobs to get the best out of your plot.

Did you know that in every square metre of soil there can be as many as 100,000 weeds? Yes, I am sure you do!! No wonder there is a relentless battle going on between gardener and weeds. Do keep them at bay as they use water and nutrients that your crops need and shade them from the light. •

Hoe regularly and particularly when the soil is dry, as the severed and exposed roots will die quickly. If you hoe when the soil is damp remove remains so that they will not re-grow.

Spread mulches such as garden compost, well-rotted manure or bark chips, to suppress weeds or use lightproof membrane to kill more established weeds.

• Make sure that you do not let weeds flower; you will only get new crops of weeds from their seeds. Pests are also becoming more noticeable in the warmer weather so don’t forget to net brassicas to protect them from the pigeons, and it is a good idea to protect carrots from carrot fly by covering with a fine mesh. Cabbage root fly, which attacks the roots of brassicas, is caused by female flies laying their eggs on the surface of the soil next to the stem of the plant. When transplanting out young plants, place something around the base of the plant to create a collar, for example a piece of carpet, cardboard or fleece.

D I S C O V E R I N G

March

As the month progresses, thinning and planting out to final positions will start to overtake sowing as the main activity as this month offers the last opportunity to sow many seeds. Sweetcorn can be planted out and, as it is self-pollinating, it is better sown closely in a block. Mark out a square or rectangle and plant at about 35-40cm (14-18inches) apart in each direction. ` Other jobs include: • Plant out vegetables that you have grown from seed but make sure you harden them off before planting out in their final position. • Thin out seedlings and plant others in their final growing positions. • Earth up potatoes and, towards the end of the month, harvest earlies. • Cut down broad beans and peas just above the surface and use for compost, but leave the roots in the ground as a good source of nitrogen. •

Once you are sure that frosts are over, you can plant out the more tender crops such as aubergines, peppers, chillies, courgettes, marrows and squashes.

• Succession sow beetroot, salad crops, carrots and, later in the month, Florence fennel. Traditionally, Florence fennel is sown after the longest day, June 21st, as it is less likely to bolt. If the weather is dry, then water your seed drills well before sowing – this way the young plants will develop a good root system. • Last chance to sow runner beans and main crop carrots. •

Brussels sprouts, leeks, sprouting broccoli and the last of the summer, autumn and red cabbages, and the first of winter cabbages can also be planted.

• Protect carrots with insect proof netting and net brassicas to deter pigeons. Happy planting!

Covid-19 Situation Update Here at Maxey Grounds our priority always has been, and remains the safety and health of our colleagues, clients and the general public. That is why we were operating remotely before the Government advised everybody to work from home where possible. Throughout the lockdown period we have been operating as fully as Government restrictions permit and using methods that safeguard all we interact with. Now that the Government are permitting the property market to operate and allowing viewings and transactions to proceed, our means of working is changing. However, the same overall priority of safety for all remains. Since the Government advice remains to work from home where possible, our staff are still working remotely. However, the investments we have made in the last few years on technology means that calls to our usual phone numbers and emails will reach us and will be dealt with promptly. We are progressing plans to ensure our offices can be operated in a safe manner when it is judged appropriate and safe to reintroduce face to face contact with clients. We have introduced policies and procedures for inspections and viewings to enable these to take place maintaining the hygiene and social distancing guidelines, where it is safe to do so. Our staff are all fully briefed on maintaining a safe environment for all involved in inspections and viewings. We are also introducing virtual tours using the latest photographic technology so that before a physical viewing takes place, prospective buyers can have looked at the property remotely and have a good understanding of the property, its condition and the accommodation it provides so that unnecessary physical viewings of properties are minimised. These tours, initially provided for vacant property during lockdown, are being rolled out across all properties on the market. We continue to use the remote communication tools including phone and video conferencing meetings that have served us well over the last 8 weeks and enabled us to continue to provide a service to clients throughout the lockdown period. Our property auction on 1st July is proceeding in an online format, and there is still sufficient time to enter any new lots. We have received many enquiries about the properties already being offered. Since restrictions were eased on 13th May, the phones and emails have been busy with people wanting to sell, buy and rent property. Several sales have already been agreed, so now that transactions can progress, give us a call and we will be happy to assist you. Our message to you is simple. Thank you for continuing to cooperate with us to ensure all stay safe and healthy during these difficult times. Maxey Grounds are, and have been throughout, open for business in the new “normal� way and look forward to speaking to you soon. 18th May 2020

COVID-19 Briefing: Government Bans All New Evictions For Three Months In the latest in a string of measures introduced to tackle the global COVID-19 pandemic, the Government has announced a moratorium on evictions, including for non-payment of rent. Whilst this is welcomed by tenants struggling to find the money to get by, many landlords are worried that this may add to the strain many of them are already facing. However, help is available to ease the burden both from the Government and from us. Read on to find out more. What are the new measures relating to evictions? The Government announcement indicates that there will be a complete ban on all new evictions for the next three months to ease pressure on tenants who are experiencing financial difficulties during the coronavirus outbreak. This is part of an unprecedented package of measures introduced by the Government to attempt to deal with the effects of the pandemic including housing problems. Landlords will not be able to start proceedings in this time to evict tenants; the system is being brought to a complete stop to try and ease the pressure on tenants and the economy at large. This applies even when tenants are not paying their rent. Who will the new measures apply to? Among others, the measures include tenants living in private rented accommodation. The measures effectively amount to a guarantee to private tenants during the outbreak that they will not be made homeless. These measures apply to private tenants in England and Wales. How long will the measures last? It is not clear at the moment. The announcement indicates that these measures are going to cover at least the next three months. It remains to be seen whether this period of time will be extended. The difficulty is that given the unprecedented nature and sheer scale of the pandemic, it is not clear how long the effects of COVID-19 will last. Do I lose the rent not paid during this three month period? No. The Government advice at this stage is that following the end of the moratorium landlords and tenants should work together to come up with an affordable repayment plan for rent from this period that was unpaid. This should take into account the individual circumstances of the tenant. 10

What do I do if I have a buy-to-let mortgage? There is some good news; lenders have agreed to a payment holiday for the three-month period for landlords with tenants who are experiencing financial hardship as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak. I’m a private landlord: what do I now? In such a difficult time, everything generally runs smoother if people work together. It is more likely than not to be in your interest to speak to everyone involved, work out a plan and make sure that everyone knows exactly what their obligations are and that you are all on the same page. Here are some practical steps that you can take right now: • Call your tenants about the COVID-19 outbreak.

Like with the virus, prevention is better than cure when it comes to legal disputes, so it is best to have an open and honest conversation with your tenants about any financial difficulties they are facing.

• Work together with them so that both sides appreciate the difficulty faced by the other

Reassure your tenants that you understand it is a difficult time for them, and if it seems that they won’t be able to meet their rental obligations due to the pandemic, agree in principle with them that once the moratorium is over they will pay any rent that is unpaid.

If you agree to reduced rent or to a rent-free period, make it clear in writing that you are not waiving your right to this rent, but only delaying the payment until the end of the moratorium.

• Speak to your lender.

As with your tenants, speak to your lender if your tenants will not be able to pay some or all of their rent for the next three-month period. Explain any difficulties this may create in meeting your mortgage repayments and speak to them about the three-month moratorium. If possible, get any agreement to the payment holiday in writing from your lender.

• Keep accurate, detailed and up-to-date records Make sure you keep a record of all your conversations in case a dispute arises later on as this can be valuable evidence. Also ensure that you record how much rent is due on what date as well as what, if anything, you received (backed up with evidence, e.g. bank statements). JUNE 2020


Legal

• Talk to us We absolutely understand how difficult the market has been for landlords in recent years and particularly in the wake of the COVID-19 outbreak.

It is entirely possible, therefore, that new legislation will have been introduced which will mean that all or part of this briefing no longer reflects the current law. Because of this, we ask you to consider that, although correct at time of printing, information in this sheet may no longer be up-to-date and it is always best practice to consult with a lawyer about anything contained in this briefing.

Even if you don’t want us to do anything, it is never a bad idea to let us know that you have been affected by the outbreak so we can offer some preliminary advice on what you should be doing.

That way when the moratorium ends, we will already understand your circumstances which is invaluable should you need our help in getting back any lost rent, drafting repayment agreements or evicting a tenant.

Although our office doors are closed, our lawyers are still available to help answer any of your questions about this or any other legal concern you have.

We know this is a very difficult time for landlords, but we are here to help even if you just want a quick chat for some reassurance. If in doubt, call us; we’re always happy to help.

Look out for our other COVID-19 Briefings: Coronavirus, Employment Law and Your Rights Commercial Tenancies and Rights of Forfeiture Making a Will Under Lockdown Commercial LPAs – Risk Management in Uncertain Times Child Contact and the Coronavirus Lockdown Debt Recovery Under Lockdown

Peace of mind through difficult times In uncertain times, the only thing we can say for certain is that nothing will stay the same for long.

Local History

Benjamin Gimbert G.C.

A

By Richard Munns (on behalf of March & District Museum)

t 12.15am on June 2nd, 1944, a few days before D-Day, a freight train from Immingham Docks loaded with high explosive bombs and detonators left March for Marks Tey and the American Air Force bases in Essex. The train was driven by Ben Gimbert (43), of Estover Road, March with James Nightall (22) from Littleport as his fireman.

The train stopped twice at Ely, but no problems were seen. However, as the train approached Soham, Ben noticed a glow from the wagon behind the engine. Slowing the train to a gradual stop, he asked his fireman to uncouple that wagon from the other 43. This was successfully accomplished, and Ben gradually pulled away from the stationary wagons. As he passed through Soham station he shouted to the signalman, who was on the platform, to stop the mail train travelling in the opposite direction. Just as he did so the wagon that was on fire exploded. The signalman, Frank Bridges, and James Nightall were killed but Ben Gimbert was thrown many yards through the air and survived, although seriously injured. The station buildings were destroyed, however the station master and his family, who were in bed at the time, were not seriously injured. To get the line open as soon as possible, large numbers of American troops from local bases, with their heavy moving equipment, were drafted in. The explosion happened at 1.43am and trains were running through Soham again by 8.20pm that same evening, such was the demand of the war. The engine, although badly damaged, was returned to the works, repaired and later sent to France to help the invasion. A large swath of the village of Soham, close to the station, was either destroyed or badly damaged. As this was the result of one wagon exploding what might have been left if the whole train had been involved? Documents from the tribute and relief fund set up to help the residents of Soham showing the damage and hardship of the residents after the explosion are in the museum Ben Gimbert spent many weeks in hospital but eventually returned to light duties on the railway.

Both he and James Nightall were awarded the George Cross for their actions but neither the signalman nor the train guard Herbert Clarke, received any recognition of their actions in preventing a much larger disaster at the time. Ben Gimbert’s medals, donated to the town by a London businessman after being put up for auction at Sotheby’s, together with nameplates from two Class 47 and two Class 66 locomotives that were named in their honour, are on permanent display at March Museum.

to ensure that the council ran as effectively as possible, and he was never afraid to raise his concerns whenever he felt it necessary. “Kit was an effective councillor, a real character and a strong champion for Fenland generally and for March in particular. So many people will miss him. Our thoughts are with Kit’s family and friends at this sad time.” Cllr Mrs Jan French, town and district councillor for March West and deputy leader of Fenland District Council, added: “Having known Kit for over thirty years, his commitment to the community will be sadly missed. Despite losing his seat in May last year, he never stopped supporting his community and people knew they could still turn to him for help.” March born and bred, Mr Owen was educated at March Grammar School. He spent time working at a local newspaper and served as a statistician in the Royal Air Force both home and abroad for twelve years.

TRIBUTES PAID TO KIT OWEN Tributes have been paid to a former senior member of Fenland District Council and six-time mayor of March who died last month after a sudden illness. Kit Owen, who served as a councillor for more than 40 years and was employed in local government for more than twenty years, passed away in the early hours of Friday May 1st, at the age of 74. Flags were lowered at Fenland District Council offices at Fenland Hall, March, as a mark of respect until after Mr Owen’s funeral. Paying tribute, chairman of Fenland District Council Cllr Mrs Kay Mayor, said: “I was very sad to learn of the passing of former March councillor Kit Owen in the early hours of this morning. Kit was not just a councillor colleague, he was also a friend and very supportive to me during my tenure as chairman of Fenland District Council. “Kit was forthright and never one to hold back on his thoughts and ideas. I shall miss him greatly and my thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends at this sad time.” Fenland District Council leader Cllr Chris Boden said: “Kit served Fenland District Council for many decades, initially as a council officer and, later, as a councillor. He used his immense experience 14

D I S C O V E R I N G

He also pursued a career in accounting, before working in local government for more than twenty years. He joined Fenland District Council as an officer in the 1970s and worked in the income and rents department. Mr Owen, a grandfather, leaves behind his wife Aiza and son Jonathan. He was pre-deceased by his first wife Beverley and daughter Lisa.

RAILWAY LINE GOES ONLINE… Coronavirus may have put the brakes on train travel for most of us, but a new website is giving people a taste of Fenland’s community railway line from the comfort of their home. The Hereward Community Rail Partnership (CRP) has launched a new website at www.herewardcrp. org to promote the Hereward Line between Ely and Peterborough and its railway stations at Manea, March and Whittlesea. The website gives viewers a chance to ‘explore the line’, and includes nearby attractions, activities, and places to stay to help people plan a trip for when it is safe to travel again. It also includes a travel advice section with train service updates, including the current reduced timetable of services for workers to get to and from their work. JUNE 2020


RESIDENTS HAVE THEIR SAY ON DOG CONTROLS Residents have been asked if they support Fenland District Council continuing to enforce dog fouling and dog control issues across the district. A Public Spaces Protection Order (PSPO) enabling the council to undertake enforcement against issues such as dog fouling and out-of-control dogs is set to expire and so it conducted an online survey for residents to have their say on it extending the PSPO for a further three years. Introduced in 2017 as part of the council’s ongoing Tidy Fenland campaign, the PSCO imposes the following dog control restrictions: • Dog fouling to be removed from any land to which the public have access

PLANS TO TRANSFORM MARCH A once-in-a-generation opportunity to dramatically transform March and make it “fit for the future” has moved forward as part of a £1 billion government plan for high streets. Fenland District Council is submitting a bid to the Government’s Future High Streets Fund to bring forward ambitious proposals to revitalise March town centre. The plans aim to diversify what the town has to offer and support its growth and sustainability by improving it for the wider community and attracting more people to live, work and visit in the future. The bold schemes include transforming Broad Street to include much more pedestrian space and reduce traffic and opening up the underused riverside areas providing improved access and seating. Other plans include redeveloping the historic Market Place to make it more of a community space, regenerating the Acre Road area and bringing vacant buildings back into use. Cllr Chris Seaton, the council’s portfolio holder for social mobility and heritage, said: “We are in a great position to submit a strong bid for March thanks to the council’s recent work on the Growing Fenland project and the emerging March Area Transport Strategy. “Through this work residents have said priorities for the town should include reducing congestion, improving the town centre and making more of the river, and we have used these priorities to shape our final bid. “We’re incredibly proud of these plans, which I believe create a compelling and exciting bid to secure significant funding for the town.” The deadline for submissions to the Future High Streets Fund is June 5th, with bidding authorities expected to hear more from the Government in late summer. JUNE 2020

• Out-of-control dogs to be put on a lead when requested by an authorised officer • Dogs to be on a lead in some open play areas, public facilities, closed cemeteries, and churchyards • Dogs to be excluded from fenced/gated play areas and open cemeteries The council has also reminded dog owners to follow the PSPO rules during the coronavirus pandemic. Staff are still carrying out enforcement patrols where possible, and anyone caught breaching the order can be issued with a Fixed Penalty Notice.

CATHERINE WINS CRICKET CLUB ’CAKE OFF’ March Town Cricket Club members have held ‘The Great Cricket Cake Off’ competition as an initiative to provide some help in the local community during these difficult times. Members were requested to bake a cake or buy a cake and donate tins and other foodstuffs to the March Food Bank so they could be distributed to deserving families in March and the surrounding area. The March Food Bank is based in the Centenary Church Hall, High Street, March and accepts donations between 10.30am and 11.30am on Monday mornings. Food Bank organiser Barbara Taylor thanked the cricket club members for their generosity and judged the competition which was won by Catherine Henshaw who baked a ‘rainbow cake’, winning a 1.5-litre bottle of Prosecco for her efforts.

is a year we won’t forget. It will go down in history as the year that everything changed and millions around the world were taken by an enemy that we couldn’t see. Life has been put on hold and no one knows when it will all be over.

colours of the flowers, the brightness of the blue skies and the sounds of birds singing. They are going for walks and see places in their own village they didn’t know existed.

We have had to learn to change every part of our lives, from work, shopping, socialising and even seeing family and friends. We are using technology to do shopping, run businesses, and communicate with family and friends. We can’t just pop round someone’s house to see them, we have to stand two metres away and talk, no hugging grandchildren, or even giving someone a kiss.

We have reconnected with friends and in some cases family members. We have realised that it’s OK to not be OK. We are looking out for each other more. We have the most amazing people in our town and the surrounding villages who have stepped up and organised food deliveries, medication pick-ups and checking up on the lonely and vulnerable. We have messenger groups on Facebook for people who are self-isolating or shielding so they can chat to others going through the same thing. We share our fears, we laugh, and we cry but the most important thing is that we know we are not alone.

Some of you have had to become teachers for your children as schools have been closed (hopefully that will change soon). We have had to find new ways to keep our minds and bodies busy. As adults we have to shoulder the worry and try and protect the little ones from our fears. It’s so difficult to explain to a child without scaring them why they can’t go to school, see their friends and family, and play outdoors. We have to try and shield them from the constant news on TV of death tolls, and social distancing. But for many families all this has brought them closer. Suddenly parents are at home with their children and are finding new and wonderful ways to keep them entertained. Children have learnt to bake, to knit, and to do wonderful drawings of rainbows to stick on their windows. They have learnt to see their gardens not just as somewhere to play but a place full of wildlife; they notice the beautiful 18

Mental health issues have soared as people try to get through this as best they can and fear is now a thing some of us are living with on a daily basis, but there has to be something good to come out of all this.

So please remember to look out for your friends, family, and neighbours, be there when they need a chat or a bit of help, and don’t be too proud to pick up the phone and say, “I need help”. As bad as this terrible virus has been the world will come through it and hopefully some of the best changes will stay and we will understand once again what are the most important things. So don’t worry about who has the biggest house, or car , or who has the most money. Remember and cherish the ones you love, the beauty of nature and the kindness that comes from people pulling together to help each other out. Keep well, keep safe, take care. JUNE 2020

Matters

OPEN FOR BUSINESS IN FENLAND Fenland firms which are open for business during the coronavirus pandemic have been offered a new online platform to spread the word. Fenland District Council has launched Fenland Open for Business to help link people with local businesses and tradespeople who are still operating in the face of the outbreak. Around 100 businesses have already registered for the service, which will help potential customers know where they can go for goods and services across the district. The platform has been launched on the council’s Fenland for Business website. To sign up for free, or find out more about which local companies are still open, visit www.fenlandforbusiness.co.uk/ coronavirus Businesses can also use the site to advertise any job vacancies they have. Councillor Ian Benney, Fenland District Council’s portfolio holder for economic growth, said: “The coronavirus pandemic is having a profound impact on local businesses, which are the lifeblood of our economy. Business owners and self-employed people are soldiering on despite the uncertainty, thinking of new ways to reach their customers in the light of the unprecedented precautions we all have to take. “The new Fenland Open for Business platform makes it quick and easy for people to find out which businesses in Fenland are still open. It’s free for businesses to sign up and get listed, so I’d urge as many as possible to get registered and make the most of the platform.” 22

We bring you items of interest for your home and community. If there is something you’d like us to cover or you have something to say please get in touch at: Discovering March, Benwick Road Ind. Est., Benwick Road, Whittlesey, Peterborough, PE7 2HD editor.march@discoveringmagazines.co.uk

He also urged residents to try and shop locally where possible: “As a council, we want to encourage people to think first and foremost about buying goods and services from our Fenland-based businesses before going to large internet retailers. The vast majority of Fenland businesses are owned and run by people who live locally and are also valued members of the community.” The council is also working hard to distribute the Government’s business support grants in Fenland to help businesses through the coronavirus crisis. If you haven’t claimed but think your business might be eligible for a grant, don’t delay – you can complete a declaration form online at www.fenland.gov.uk/coronavirusbusinessgrants. Any businesses needing advice to complete their declarations can contact the council for help on 01354 654321 or email: covid19.businessgrants@ fenland.gov.uk To find out more about the support available for businesses, visit www.fenland.gov.uk/ coronavirusbusinessadvice

HELP FOR THE HOMELESS Private landlords are being urged to help ensure homeless people continue to have a safe place to live once the coronavirus lockdown ends. Following the COVID-19 outbreak, Fenland District Council has been working hard to implement government guidance to protect rough sleepers from the spread of the virus, to make sure emergency accommodation and support are available. More than fifty rough sleepers have been temporarily rehoused in local hotels and bed and breakfast facilities and provided with ongoing support, such as treatment programmes and financial advice, to help them move on to permanent accommodation when lockdown restrictions are lifted. Now the council is asking any landlords with available homes in the district to get in touch to help provide more permanent accommodation. Landlords that can offer help can contact the council on 01354 654321 and ask for the housing options team or email: housingadvice@fenland.gov.uk Anyone in need of urgent housing advice or assistance can use the contact details above or complete an online referral at www.fenland.gov.uk/ housingadvice JUNE 2020


REFUSE TEAMS PRAISED New figures reveal that waste and recycling collected from Fenland homes has shot up by seventeen percent since coronavirus lockdown measures were introduced. Despite reduced staff numbers, Fenland District Council’s hardworking refuse crews collected an extra 534 tonnes of waste and recycling between March 23rd and April 23rd compared to normal – the equivalent of thirty double decker buses or 106 African elephants! Each working day the crews are collecting 38 tonnes of recycling and 92 tonnes of green bin waste – both up by 12%. Meanwhile, garden waste has seen a massive 36% increase – with 48 tonnes being collected every brown bin day.

CALLING ALL YOUNG RECYCLING HEROES… Is your youngster a recycling hero? Do they know what does and doesn’t go in the blue bin? Perhaps they’re emptying bottles and rinsing cans and yogurt pots – and making sure other family members recycle right? If so, then Fenland District Council’s new Recycling Hero competition is for them. To test children’s recycling knowledge and give them a fun challenge to complete during the coronavirus school closures, the council’s expert Getting It Sorted recycling volunteers have been busy creating a colouring competition for kids aged five to sixteen. Cllr Peter Murphy, the council’s portfolio holder for the environment, said: “It’s great that our fabulous volunteers have generously spent their time designing something for the kids to do during the school closures, and help them learn about recycling.” Visit www.fenland.gov.uk/recyclinghero2020 where you can download and print a range of recycling hero templates to be coloured in and completed.

At times, the refuse team has been down by a quarter, but staff have worked rest days and cancelled annual leave to keep things running as smoothly as possible. Additional new staff have also been trained and an extra refuse collection vehicle is being used to help cope with the increased demand. Councillor Peter Murphy, Fenland District Council’s portfolio holder for the environment, said: “Bin collections are one of our most vital services, provided to over 45,000 households across Fenland. In the last few weeks, with more people staying at home, the refuse crews have collected unprecedented levels of waste, but they have adapted to the situation with incredible professionalism and determination to get the job done. “Our thanks must go to them for working so hard to make sure all blue, green and brown bin collections have been maintained as normal. I’d also like to thank the street cleansing team for continuing to provide an excellent seven-day service and the workshop staff who are keeping our vehicles on the road.”

Entries can be sent to gettingitsorted@fenland. gov.uk or posted to: Recycling Hero Competition, Fenland District Council, The Base, Melbourne Avenue, March, Cambridgeshire, PE15 0EN. You can also display your creations in your windows at home to show your support for your bin crews or share on social media tagging @FenlandCouncil and using the hashtags #recyclinghero and #gettingitsorted. There will be some super prizes up for grabs for the winners, which will be announced after the competition closes on July 20th, 2020. JUNE 2020

How to Back up Your PC to Keep Important Information Safe Later this month Microsoft will be rolling out a Windows 10 Update, which will include new features to help with productivity, security and speed. The update (known as Windows 10 versions 2004 and 20H1) is expected to start rolling out to users at the end of May, (Microsoft has yet to confirm an exact date). Before downloading this new update, we advise you to back up your PC.

There are two main types of backup that you can use to keep your important data safe. The first is ‘file backup’, which allows you to make copies of the files stored on your PC. File History is a handy tool in Windows 10, which allows you to perform regular, scheduled copies of the data on your PC and stores it on an external drive. To set up File History you’ll first need to ensure a secondary drive is connected to your PC: Click the Start button then the Settings button (it looks like a gear and is found in the bottom left corner of the Start menu). Then click Update and security > Back-Up > Add a drive and then choose the drive you’d like to use as a backup. You can now choose which files you want to back up: Click the Start button then the Settings button. Click Update and security > Backup > More options > Add a folder. Choose a folder you want to back up then

click on Choose this folder. If you add the wrong folder or want to remove a folder from the backup list, click the folder in the Back up these folders list then click Remove. You can change how often a backup occurs, as long as the drive is connected: Click the Start button then the Settings button. Click Update and security > Backup > More options. Click the dropdown arrow beneath Back up my files, then click frequency options. You can also change how long the backups are kept on the drive or network by clicking the dropdown arrow beneath Keep my backups, then click a time limit.

REMEMBER THAT ONCE YOUR BACK UP IS FINISHED, YOU MUST DISCONNECT THE EXTERNAL BACKUP DEVICE FROM YOUR PC TO PREVENT RANSOMWARE FROM ATTACKING IT. The other type of backup is a ‘system backup’ or a ‘system image’. This is more complicated as it involves making a backup copy of the entire Windows operating system running on your PC, as well as all your programs, files and settings. If this is something you wish to carry out, please give us a call.

JUNE 21st:

FATHER’S DAY

Y

but it’s not the only day we can celebrate….

ou may already know that this year, Father’s Day will be celebrated on Sunday June 21st. It’s always the third Sunday in the month, ever since the idea was introduced in the USA in 1910. In the UK, we’d long acknowledged Mothering Sunday as the fourth Sunday in Lent, (March 22nd this year), so it was only fair that we dads should get their treats as well.

June 1st: National Dare Day The time when you can challenge anyone to make a dare, be it a personal thing liking asking her/him out on a date, a challenge for them to achieve something special or just make a fool of themselves. June 4th: Hug Your Cat Day If you are a cat lover, this is why you have your feline friend in the first place, but today’s the day to make more of a fuss than usual

June 21st: The Summer Solstice The longest day of the year so make the most of it now before the nights start pulling in – downhill to winter! June 26th: Forgiveness Day. Alexander Pope wrote, “To err is human, to forgive, divine.” Three hundred years on, it’s still true and today’s the day to forgive and be forgiven. These are just a few of the days which can be celebrated in June, but how could you not raise a glass to the following beauties? June 2nd: National Rocky Road Day June 9th: National Donald Duck Day June 13th: National Weed Your Garden Day, or June 28th: International Body Piercing Day?!

June 8th: Best Friends Day For that really special person, here’s the chance to show them just how much you appreciate their friendship – send them a card or a gift! June 17th: Eat Your Vegetables Day The ideal opportunity to do as the experts are telling us – at least five portions of fruit and veg. per day. (Alternatively, June 5th happens to be Doughnut Day!!!)

Beauty

Why you should hire a make-up artist for your wedding day... by Lauren Siddons

You have bought the perfect wedding dress and booked the ideal venue. You’re planning the party of the century but don’t forget about yourself. Hiring a make-up artist may seem like an ‘extra’ expense. However, if you pay for a lesson and then buy all the make-up on top of that (that you probably won’t use again) in an attempt to do a DIY make-up job, then it may well be cheaper to hire an artist. Here are my top reasons for booking a make-up artist for your wedding day: Be stress free on your big day Everyone is bound to get a little nervous while getting ready for their wedding day and trying to apply a top quality make-up application that looks not only flawless in person, but in pictures as well is a hard job to tackle but this is where having a professional comes in handy. An on-location make-up artist will come to your location of choice and create an environment where you will feel totally relaxed. Make-up tricks to help you look your best A properly trained artist will know how to highlight your best features, whether it’s your flawless skin, high cheekbones, kissable lips or sparkling eyes. They also know how to camouflage and cover up techniques to adequately conceal the flaws in your skin without caking on tons of products. Make-up artists know how to choose the colours best for you and your unique colouring and are equipped with the proper tools and knowledge needed to bring out your best features for your wedding day. Be camera ready As a make-up artist, myself, I keep my kit stocked with make-up designed to look amazing when photographed. Experienced make-up artists will sculpt your face using contouring techniques to add the illusion of depth in two dimensional

photographs and in real life. Professionally done wedding make-up will guarantee you looking beautiful under any light. Long lasting wear When you a hire a make-up artist you won’t have to worry about your make-up wearing off during your entire wedding day. By utilising specialised products such as primers, setting sprays and powders, make-up artists will give you a long lasting make-up look. No-one is left out As well as pampering you, an artist can create a unique, yet universal look for your whole bridal party. A good artist will manage some sort of schedule for the morning of your wedding day to ensure everyone is ready in plenty of time. You are worth it You will be looking at your wedding photographs for the rest of your life so hire someone who specialises in make-up for photography. A professional make-up artist makes it his or her job to make sure that the bride is the most important face of the day!

Poetry

Fen Blow By Chrissie Atkinson

30

Feel the Fen Blow bey, It rattles the bones Through graves long forgotten, In church yards of stone

Swirls round the bench And kisses the face Of dear Molly Watkins, At peace in her place

Lazy old Easterly Howls like a dog, Then covers the dykes In a blanket of fog

Brucks up the fruit trays Stacked high the markets. Makes pots goo a gutzer, Snaps flowers in baskets

It reddens the hands Travelled from foreign parts Who harvest the land, Picking artichoke hearts.

Snatches the bread From men eating dockey Whilst sat on memorials, Saddened with poppies

Gets up the tails Of the long-legged hares, That run for their lives From the Gamekeeper’s glares

The sky’s blue as Woad dye So, stretch out your hand And feel the Fen Blow, bey For this is Fen Land

Recipe

EASY BREEZY COLESLAW Ingredients For the coleslaw: 4 cups shredded green cabbage 4 cups shredded purple cabbage 2 cups shredded carrots For the dressing:

Method

1 cup non-fat plain Greek yogurt 1&1/2 tsp Dijon mustard 3 tsp water 3 tsp pure maple syrup 2&1/2 tsp apple cider vinegar 1/2 tsp salt 1/4 tsp black pepper

32

D I S C O V E R I N G

The well-loved barbecue staple gets a tweak this month.... this easy recipe uses creamy Greek yogurt instead of mayo!

March

1 Add all of the coleslaw dressing ingredients to a large bowl and whisk until combined. 2 Add in the shredded cabbage and carrots and stir until everything is coated. 2

The coleslaw can be served immediately but is best when refrigerated for a few hours first... the best things come to those who wait, right?!

Beer Through the Year: Windsor & Eton Brewery

W

indsor & Eton Brewery was founded during 2010 and now proudly possesses a Royal Warrant. Producing great classic and new beer styles, a good number of which are bottle conditioned, this brewery has a range of very impressive ales, that includes award winners and multi award-winning productions. Knight of the Garter Golden Ale: (3.8% vol). Described on the label as ‘Sunshine in a glass’ (I agree), this golden ale is brewed with a blend of hops from the New World. A citrus aroma greets the nasal senses, which follows admirably to the mouthfeel. Guardsman Best Bitter: (4.2% vol). Extremely popular, Guardsman is brewed utilising Fuggles and Goldings whole leaf hops to great advantage. This easy-drinking, smooth production has wide appeal, with its copper colour and excellent taste. A favourite with numerous beer lovers. Windsor Knot Pale Ale: (4.5% vol). Brewed originally to commemorate the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton, this beer uses Sovereign and Nelson Sauvin hops and has many supporters amongst pale ale devotees. Republika Craft Pilsner: (4.8% vol). This splendid craft beer is one of several productions from the Windsor & Eton Brewery which have won awards. Combinations of Saaz hops, Czech yeast and Pilsner malt produce this full-flavoured delight, which I found very refreshing. JUNE 2020

Conqueror Black IPA: (5.0% vol). Bringing together Cascade and Pacific Jade whole leaf hops, plus a blend of five speciality malts, this complex and noticeably rich IPA gained great interest from the outset. ‘Superb’, ‘awesome’ and ‘brilliant’ are some of the descriptions attributed to this beer. Wasteland Double IPA: (10.0% vol). Belgian candi sugar is one of the ingredients for this Double IPA with ten different hops, that include some of the best of America and the New World. Another exceptional IPA, which certainly delivers on aroma, mouthfeel and the palate’s enjoyment. Other popular productions include Capital DryHopped Lager and Treason West Coast IPA. Ordering is easy and beers are delivered via courier to anywhere in the UK. Visitors to the brewery are made very welcome. Windsor & Eton Brewery, Duke Street, Windsor, Berkshire, SL4 1SE. Tel: 01753 854075 Email: sales@webrew.co.uk www.webrew.co.uk Also on social media. As always, enjoy!
