Is it really a year since the coronation of King Charles on May 6th, 2023? However, so much seems to have happened since then, especially regarding the health issues of the royal family, as both the King and the Duchess of Cambridge fight their own battles against cancer.

It is often said that we all take our good health for granted and it is only when we, or those close to us, are diagnosed with something potentially life-threatening, such as cancer, that we stop and think just how precious life really is and how every day should be seen as the opportunity to do something special, however trivial or inconsequential it may appear to be!

I know I’m not alone in enjoying the fabulous opportunities that having dogs (or any other pets) can give us, especially at this time of the year, as those long walks easily become such a crucial part of our day, admiring the handiwork of other garden-lovers, and taking in the sounds and scents of our local patch! Enjoy this month, and every day in it.

Unlike many people, I am someone who enjoys driving, particularly at this time of year when the weather is beginning to improve.

Sure, I don’t enjoy being stuck in traffic queues but in general it is something that I find strangely therapeutic. At the wheel of my car, I can listen to discussions on the radio or to some of my favourite songs while I think about what I have to do that day or even occasionally contemplate the meaning of life. However, one – but not the only thing – that annoys me is the bizarre refusal of some other road-users to use their indicators. Sitting at a roundabout waiting for the opportunity to drive off in my preferred direction it would be a great help if some drivers actually gave me an insight into what their own intentions were.

I have a few skills, but one I definitely haven’t got is being telepathic, so if you see me heading in your direction at a junction, please let me know where you intend to proceed to. Not only would it be the safest thing for you to do to avert a possible accident, but it would also vastly improve my blood pressure...

The Whittlesey Ex-Services Brunch Club is proving to be a great success since being formed three years ago.

It was the idea of former Grenadier Guard Malcolm Clifford and is aimed at ex-servicemen from the Armed Forces and also the civilian services including the Police, Fire, and medical professions and joins up every second Saturday in Whittlesey. The group, which has more than eighty members, currently meets to eat at The Crown pub from 10am-12noon, and there are plans afoot to also hold a drop-in centre alongside the brunch club. Malcolm said: “I got the idea during the pandemic as I thought there was nothing available to exservice people in the town and it has proven to be very popular. I wanted to bring together people so that they can get advice and guidance about the support that is available and it also allows them to join with others who share the same unique sense of humour and their own special way of communicating with each other.”

May is one of our busiest months, but days are getting longer, giving you more time to carry out all the jobs that need doing.

Warmer (?) weather also favours weed growth (hoe regularly) and a variety of pests – how about planting flowers to attract beneficial insects and pollinators? Some suggestions are marigolds, sunflowers, cornflowers, lavender, sweet peas, and nasturtiums.

Seeds sown last month, such as carrots, beetroot, parsnips, to name a few, will need thinning out whilst they are still very small. Once they have been thinned out, water along the row to help the disturbed seedlings settle back in. When watering young plants and seedlings, water less frequently but more thoroughly, as this gets down to the roots. Also, carefully hand weed between the seedlings to avoid damaging the new seedlings. They may also require protection from very wet weather (or even a late frost) or pests and diseases.

Indoor sowings such as leek, sprouts and summer cabbage can be brought out now but take care to harden off plants that have been grown indoors or under cover before planting in their final growing position. A cheap way to protect tender young plants is to use “bottle cloches”, cutting down the two litre plastic drinks bottles; they are useful for protecting young runner beans and peas. Leeks should resemble a pencil in size. Make a six-inch-deep hole with a pole or similar and pop the leek seedling in and fill the hole with water. There is no need to fill in the hole with soil. This will happen naturally.

Other jobs to do this month include:

• Earth up potatoes; when the leaves are about 20cm tall, draw up the earth on either side to form a ridge approx. 15cms high: this will protect the foliage from frost and stop the tubers going green and poisonous.

• Pick flowers off new strawberries to prevent them cropping in their first year.

• Put some straw underneath the developing strawberry fruits to keep them off the soil and try to avoid watering overhead to reduce any problems with mildew.

• Cover carrots with netting to stop carrot fly damage.

• Pot on growing plants.

• Some crops may require a support ready for their growth, such as beans and peas and climbing plants. Ensure it is sturdy enough to take the weight once the fruits have formed, as well as the foliage, and that it can withstand any winds.

• Seeds to sow out are too many to mention, but include carrots, beetroot, French beans, lettuce, spring onions, salad leaves and peas.

• Try “succession sowing”, a small batch of seeds every two or three weeks, and you should have a steady supply rather than a glut: it will also help to maximise your chances of successful germination.

• Indoors, you can sow chillies, courgettes and squashes, runner beans, sweetcorn, aubergines, and cabbages.

Let’s hope for some good weather for growing and planting: enjoy!

Step out in style was the order of the day as the Whittlesey Christian Church hosted a pre-loved Fashion Show to raise valuable funds for Sue Ryder.

The event was presented by Penco and supported by Sophy Beth's Hair & Beauty, Toni at More Than Just a Tan, Fenland Youth Radio, RWT Photography, Inspiration Sound & Lighting from Peterborough and many people who donated raffle prizes.

A fantastic grand total of £2300 was raised from the ticket sales, sale of goods from the pop-up shop and the raffle. Organisers Corrine Wooding and Julie Windle paid tribute not only to the supporters but also to the models, dressers, the Women's Institute members in the kitchen and the Christian Church for the venue and music.


Rai & Rai Builders, kitchen and bathroom installers of Whittlesey, was one of sixteen Fenland businesses to have each been awarded £5000 after successfully applying for a Rural England Prosperity Fund grant.

Business expansion, diversification and financial and environmental sustainability projects were among those supported in the first round of grant awards from the Fenland fund.

Many of the projects supported by the grants are expected to lead to new jobs. According to estimates in the grant bids, the total number of new jobs could be as high as twenty-eight.

Contemplating the subject matter for this article, I felt it relevant to explore a commonly debated issue: the challenge of desiring a move while facing a lack of appealing options in the housing market.

The question arises: should individuals focus on selling their current property or on finding their dream home first?

In the age-old debate of the chicken and the egg, each person's circumstances and path are unique. However, our suggestion remains consistent: secure a buyer first, then embark on the quest for your perfect new home. This ensures you're primed and prepared to make a move without the risk of losing out on the ideal property.

Sometimes, it's advantageous not to have encountered your dream home yet, preventing potential disappointment from missing out.

Once a buyer is found, our role as estate agents shifts to managing their expectations and keeping them updated. This involves clearly articulating that you're currently in search mode and allowing you ample time to find your new home.

Additionally, estate agents possess the capability to assist in discovering desired properties, including those not publicly listed, commonly referred to as off-market properties.

Here's the thing: a significant portion of the market operates off the radar. While online listings provide some insight, they don't reveal the full picture. Estate

agents utilise various marketing strategies, and many properties never make it to public listings. Consider this: before a property hits the portals, agents may already be scouting potential buyers and matching them with suitable properties. This means that by the time a listing goes public, there could already be significant interest.

Furthermore, off-market opportunities offer a more personalised approach. Estate agents can tailor their search to your specific needs, targeting properties that match your preferences and timeline. Imagine getting a viewing before a property even hits the market.

But how do you access these off-market opportunities? It often comes down to having the right connections and working with experienced professionals, registering with agents locally, with their broad network and insider knowledge. We can can provide access to these exclusive opportunities. So, if you're feeling unsure about selling, don’t worry, your dream property could be waiting just around the corner, away from the public eye.

There are enough ways for your hard-earned money to diminish from rising prices and taxation, but there is a more significant potential threat – ill health or an accident.

Either situation may prevent you from working and earning, and then all the 'ordinary' bills may become problematic.

In years past, employers may have provided valuable sick pay arrangements, for example, three months of full pay followed by a similar period at half pay. However, this arrangement is becoming rare. Now, it's very quickly reliant on statutory sick pay.

Calculate the minimum requirement for your household to pay all the bills, including any mortgage or credit arrangements to prevent hardship. Deduct any existing protection plans and employment benefits and see what additional income you still need if sickness or an accident occurs. A simple Income Protection Plan to suit your needs may solve the shortfall.

Setting up an arrangement when young and healthy is easier and cheaper. The plan can protect you now and grow with you as your circumstances change. A good independent financial planner will run a cash flow monitor and dial in some situations that might occur to test your financial security.

How to Spot a Rogue Trader on Your Doorstep – or on that of a Vulnerable Neighbour

Spring is here and many of us are looking to spruce up our property, including the garden, driveway, fascia, and cladding. Whatever the job, big or small, don’t be tempted to give the work to someone who cold calls you at your home, claiming to be “carrying out similar work in the area”.

Sadly, the 70-79 years age group is one of the most targeted, and according to Age UK, each year, around 1 in 12 (940,000) older people fall victim to a scam. Whatever your age, please be aware of these more common red flags:

• A van or vehicle that has been parked outside the house for some time or which frequently comes and goes.

• Your neighbour being kept talking on the doorstep for what seems an unusual length of time.

• Work being carried out with no obvious signs of health and safety – e.g., workers on the roof with no protective clothing or scaffolding.

• Work that looks shoddy, untidy, or unfinished, even to the untrained eye.

• Multiple ‘workmen’ on site, with frequent engagement with the homeowner with no apparent work being done.

Doorstep rogue traders have a knack of catching people off guard. Remember:

1) Don’t be talked into something on the spur of the moment.

2) Don’t take their word for it when they claim urgent work or repairs need doing.

3) Do ask them to qualify who they are and to leave you a contact number.

4) Never hand over any cash as a deposit for work which they say they will return to carry out.

5) Feel free to ask to see their credentials and/or examples of their work.

6) Always ask them politely to leave if you feel uncomfortable with their approach.

7) If you want to get rid of them but don’t feel confident in asking them to leave, take a leaflet and report it to the trading standards or 101 if you suspect something isn’t quite right.

So, if you are in the market for a new driveway or patio or are dreaming of a new lawn or garden for the summer, then always use a professional. No reputable tradesperson will come knocking on your door ‘touting’ for business.

If you would like to find a reputable and recommended tradesperson in your area, visit and together we can root out the rogue traders!

Where does the time go? This is my final article before stepping down as your town mayor. This year has been extremely busy and as I am writing this, there are lots more events to attend.

At the Charity Dinner held on March 23rd the presentation to Whittlesey Citizen of the Year was made. It gave me very great pleasure to present the trophy to Malcolm Clifford. Malcolm is exmilitary and was nominated for his works with the RBL and SSAFA and his support for mental health and wellbeing. He was also paramount in setting up the Whittlesey Ex-Services Brunch Club which now has more than eighty members. At the time of writing, the Young Citizen of the Year has not yet been announced.

On Friday, April 19th I attended the unveiling of a memorial at Eastrea that commemorates the lives of the eight brave men that lost their lives when an Avro Lancaster bomber crashed in a field near Eastrea, eighty years ago. The only crew member’s body recovered was the tail gunner, Sgt John Willis. Sgt. Willis’s remains were later buried in Bury Cemetery, Lancashire. The remaining seven crew members were never recovered. At long last there is a local memorial to honour their brave efforts. The 80th Anniversary of D Day will be commemorated on Thursday, June 6th at Whittlesey War Memorial where there will be a short service at 10.45am led by the town council and Royal British Legion. In the previous issue I mentioned St George’s Day –April 23rd – I had three, yes three St George’s Day events to attend; thank goodness they were all on different days!!

Unfortunately, the car boot sale planned for April 7th was cancelled; however, there is one scheduled for Sunday, May 5th at Grosvenor Road North Car Park. If you are interested in having a pitch (£5) please contact me at kaymayor@ All proceeds will go towards the Mayor’s Charities.

An additional fundraising event for the Mayor’s Charities will be held at Holy Trinity Church, Coates on Saturday, May 4th at 3.30pm. This will take the form of a musical afternoon where the entertainment will be provided by Paul Turner and the Whittlesey Singers. Tickets are £7.50 – to include

The council meeting will be held on Thursday, May 23rd, commencing at 6.30pm. This will be preceded by the annual parish meeting at 6pm. The annual parish meeting provides an opportunity for residents to discuss local matters.

I should like to thank you all for listening to my ramblings over the past year and I hope that I have represented the town well in all the events that I have attended. This is not goodbye – just au revoir.

Do you suffer from damaged nails and want good looking feet NOW?

Toenail reconstruction could be the answer!

Toenail reconstruction is a cosmetic or medical procedure performed by a podiatrist. We use a specialist gel that is layered either directly onto the nail or nail bed if no nail is present due to trauma or surgery. This is suitable for both men and women, with the option of a natural looking finish or gloss finish. This procedure creates a brand-new nail or covers unsightly or misshapen nails so that the nail is more aesthetically pleasing. This is perfect to disguise unsightly nails due to fungal infections, or damage to the nail bed.

This means that you can still have lovely looking feet for your holiday or special occasion and flaunt your feet in style. Nail reconstruction is not a permanent solution. The length of time that the nail reconstruction lasts will vary from person to person. The new nail will generally last between four and six weeks but can last longer depending on how much of the nail is damaged; after this time, the reconstructed nail is removed and a new one can be reapplied.

A reconstructed toenail may be treated in exactly the same way you would treat a normal nail, meaning you can apply nail varnish and use a nail varnish remover.

Contact us now on 01354 651200 for more information about how we can help your damaged, ugly nails look beautiful again!

Past Life Regression: Exploring the Depths of Our Soul's Journey

Have you ever wondered about the mysteries of your existence? The idea that we may have lived multiple lives before our current one is a concept that has fascinated and intrigued many throughout history. Past life regression is a therapeutic technique that allows you to access and explore your past lives, offering a glimpse into the depths of your soul's journey.

patients. Dr Weiss's work sparked curiosity and opened the doors for many individuals to explore their own past lives.

Susie Munns

Past life regression is based on the belief in reincarnation, the idea that our souls are eternal and undergo a series of lives to learn and grow spiritually. It suggests that our current life is just one chapter in a much larger story. Through the process of regression, you are guided into a relaxed and meditative state, where you can access memories and experiences from previous lives.

The concept of past life regression can be traced back to ancient civilisations such as the Egyptians, Greeks, and Hindus, who believed in the cycle of birth, death, and rebirth. However, it wasn't until the 20th century that past life regression gained attention in the Western world, thanks to pioneers like Edgar Cayce and Brian Weiss.

Edgar Cayce, also known as the ‘Sleeping Prophet’, was a renowned psychic who popularised past life regression through his readings. He would enter a trance-like state and provide detailed information about people's past lives, offering insights into their current challenges and relationships. His work helped to bring the idea of past life regression into the mainstream.

Dr Brian Weiss, a psychiatrist and author, also played a significant role in popularising past life regression. In his ground-breaking book, ‘Many Lives, Many Masters’, he shared his experiences with regression therapy and how it transformed the lives of his

So, how does past life regression work? During a session, a trained therapist or practitioner guides you into a state of deep relaxation and heightened awareness. Through a series of visualisation techniques, you are encouraged to access memories and experiences from previous lives. These memories can manifest as vivid images, emotions, sensations, or even intuitive knowing. The purpose of past life regression is not just to satisfy curiosity about our past lives but also to gain insights and healing in our current life. By exploring past life memories, you can uncover patterns, fears, and unresolved issues that may be affecting your present reality. It allows you to connect the dots between your past and present, leading to a deeper understanding of yourself and your life's purpose.


Join me on May 21st at St Andrew’s Hall, Whittlesey for my Past Life Regression Workshop, where I will guide you through three regressions, allowing you time to journal and reflect on your experience. I will be on hand to answer any questions and help you delve into the meaning of your regressions. Visit to find out more and secure your place.

Four small changes to make with your money that can have A BIG IMPACT

Small, positive changes can collectively make a big difference to your life and that certainly applies when it comes to your finances. Try out these four tips and see how much money you save.

Create a budget

If your aim is to save money, creating a budget is one of the most important first steps. It’s a fantastic way to gain a clearer picture of your financial situation.

First, establish what you spend your money on and how much income you have coming in. This will help you see where you can cut out or cut back on small expenses to increase savings in the long run.

Visit to get help creating your budget.

Always compare prices

Since the cost of living started to rise, pretty much everything has gone up in price and it can feel almost impossible to find a bargain these days.

Things might not be cheap but there are often cheaper alternatives. We can sometimes go for a brand we’ve seen advertised because that

exposure makes us trust it more than brands we haven’t heard of. However, just because a company doesn’t have a big advertising budget doesn’t necessarily mean what they’re selling won’t do the job you need it to do.

Try cheaper alternatives, and if you like them, great, you’ve saved money! If you don’t, you can always go back to a brand you prefer if you decide it’s worth the extra cost.

Check out helpful websites

Finding out what the cheapest option is can sometimes be a challenge but there are plenty of helpful websites to give you a good idea.

Try for tips to help you save on a wide range of different things. Sign up to their weekly email newsletter to get the latest deals, guides and hacks directly from Martin Lewis and the MSE team.

Attend a free money course

Free local money coaching and life skills courses can be super helpful to take your money management skills and financial confidence to the next level.

Christians Against Poverty (CAP) runs these free courses in local communities for people of all faiths and none.

The amazing story of Must Farm in Whittlesey and the insight it gives us into life three thousand years ago puts us on the map as one of the most important Bronze Age sites in Europe. It is a treasure trove of regular discoveries and I’m looking forward to dipping into the new publications that detail the story of the discovery and excavation.

The Must Farm pile-dwelling settlement dates from the end of the Bronze Age (850BC) and the circular wooden houses made from local woodland trees were built on stilts over water but only occupied for a year before they were destroyed by fire. As the buildings burned, their contents dropped into the muddy river below and were preserved, enabling archaeologists to understand how the roundhouses were used, the buildings’ architecture, and what personal items like decorated textiles, pots, jars, utensils, and glass beads the inhabitants owned.

Thousands of objects survived detailing a life where inhabitants ate meaty stews, dumplings and bread, chops of pork, lamb and potentially honey-basted venison. Historic England, Forterra UK, University of Cambridge Department of Archaeology, Cambridge Archaeological Unit and McDonald Monographs have all been involved with these new publications and you can see some of the unique objects uncovered and learn about the excavation and stories that have emerged from the research at a free exhibition at Peterborough Museum and Art Gallery until September 28th.

The Pride in Fenland Awards are a highlight in the calendar and it’s always inspiring and humbling to hear about the volunteers, fundraisers, carers, litter pickers and community heroes they celebrate. Many congratulations to all those who were nominated, an incredible 117 nominations for seventy-nine groups and people who strive to improve our community which shows the strength and depth of commitment in our area and how special so many of our residents are.

Winners are Helping Whittlesey Community Pantry which redistributes food that would otherwise go

to waste (Community Group Volunteers); nineyear-old Shyla Brown who has raised more than £2000 for a friend and his brother who suffer from the incurable degenerative Batten Disease (Young Individual); George Broughton, described as the ‘heartbeat’ of Feed Fenland which provides hot meals to those in need (Individual Volunteer); David Rose for his daily litter picking in Leverington (Environmental Volunteer); Alyssa and Scarlett Bass, aged nine and ten, who have had to call 999 four times for their mum who has complications with type 1 diabetes (Special Judges Award); and Evelyn Hamps (88) for her tireless work over decades looking after the Methodist Chapel in Doddington (Lifetime Volunteer Award); plus runners up: All Seasons, Chatteris; six-year-old Jack Page; and Geoff Howes.

It’s great to get out and about in the constituency and I had an excellent discussion with March Young Farmers at Hall Farm in Guyhirn on their priorities for the future of farming. There were lots of positive ideas and an opportunity to discuss the policy changes I am making to prioritise food production and food security.

If you haven’t already given your views to Ofsted’s Big Listen, I’d encourage parents, children and professionals to share their thoughts about how Ofsted is currently working and inform its future direction. Ofsted inspections have come under scrutiny over the last year and this consultation is designed to ensure feedback is gathered, listened to, and improvements made. Running until May 31st, find out more at Ofsted Big Listen – GOV.UK (

Peterborough Asylum and Refugee Community Association (PARCA) was delighted to instruct Discovering Magazines for the design and print of its recent ‘Welcome to Peterborough’ booklet, a project funded in partnership with the British Red Cross. The publication includes information on accessing healthcare, English classes (ESOL), education, places of worship, housing, support agencies and more.

Marija Lysak, outreach manager at PARC, said: “We needed to create an accessible resource of information for newcomers to the area as well as those living here already. Our service users come from diverse backgrounds and nationalities and we were impressed with how Discovering Magazines came up with a creative, inclusive design to reflect this.” The booklet is available in hard copy or digital version at to_peterborough_booklet/docs/parca_support_ groups_brochure_issue

Local businessman Simon Black gave a talk to the Whittlesea Society at a recent meeting at The Falcon Hotel, Whittlesey, focusing on the fantastic paintings in the Old Monastery (7-9 Market Street). The paintings have been dated as being created in 1523 and add to the many historic findings in the Whittlesey area.

The next meeting of the society is on Thursday, June 6th at 2pm at The Falcon Hotel where David Clayton will be guest speaker and his topic ‘funeral history and customs’. For more details of the society contact Maureen Watson (01733) 203767.

in and gin cocktails are amongst the most popular alcoholic beverages available and enjoyed today. These productions are loved very much indeed, and this has been the case for years –certainly, from originating during the Middle Ages.

Many different gins are widely available, and flavoured delectations have become increasingly popular during recent times. A lot of gin lovers add a tonic and/or a slice of lemon, to their preferred tipple. “Gin & Tonic” is a renowned ‘classic’.

The award-winning Jin Reaper Distillery is located in Sheffield, and their productions are known for consistency and high quality. The gins are produced in small batches and recall thoughts of myths and characters from past times, with labelling and presentations displayed accordingly. The handmade bottles used by the Jin Reaper Distillery contain gins to suit the tastes and palates of numerous gin connoisseurs, at all levels, with botanicals and ingredients being the finest available.

Jin Reaper London Dry Grim Gin (42% ABV) is a Signature Production, that I found to be crisp for the mouthfeel, which continues on to the palate’s delight. Jin Reaper London Dry Evangeline Gin (42% ABV) evokes thoughts of the Reaper’s Bride, coming through as a spicy gin and – reading into it – equating to the passion, desire, hate and love, from the spirits of the depicted characters. Cardamom and Cumin are amongst the botanicals utilised, to great advantage, for this delectation. A sweetness of liquorice adds to the enjoyment.

Jin Reaper London Dry Ferryman Gin (57% ABV) is their Navy Strength production. Yes, it is powerful, it is strong, and it is intense, for both the mouthfeel and palate. Ferryman is a further, very popular gin, from the Jin Reaper Distillery.

I found these craft gins to be most interesting and very much worthwhile taking the time to locate such distinctive productions. For more details, (stockists, online ordering, plus free delivery, and information about the Jin Reaper Loyalty Scheme) please contact and/or visit the website. Email:

Well what a Duck Race....

The Mayor of Whittlesey’s Annual Duck Race was held back for forty-five minutes from the scheduled start time due to the Cambs Fire & Rescue appliance receiving a callout to go to other side of Wisbech to rescue a horse in the water.

Meanwhile an CF&R Emergency callout team was pulled together to ensure the race took place. The organisers have thanked the team and also Andrew Lashley, his family and his Green Goddess who also gave valuable support to ensure all the ducks had an equal opportunity to bid for glory. Many thanks also were given to Medivet for the car parking and Andrew Roddham and Richard Taylor for fishing out the ducks at the end, Alan Hobbs for duck security to and from the event, St John Ambulance, Whitt the Duck, Fenland Youth Radio for the commentary, sound system and tent and the many other volunteers who made the day possible. The winners were: 1st prize £50 Lucy Pulford, 972 shown in the photo with the Mayor; 2nd prize £25 Sam Clark FDC 60; 3rd prize £10 Zoe Richmond 393; 4th prize Easter Egg donated by Whittlesey Sports Association Rosie Jones 13; 5th prize Easter Egg donated by Fenland Youth Radio Brian Aldridge 667.

Whitt the Duck was out and about supporting local groups and businesses in Whittlesey. At the Falcon Hotel he presented Easter eggs to guests who were enjoying a special lunch thanks to St Andrew’s Church. Meanwhile at Cedar Court, Whitt met up with an old friend Ken Mayor, a past chairman of Whittlesey Town Council, and he also had time to visit Coles Barbers for a trim.
