Dear Kinson & Northbourne, Welcome to our brand NEW Directory for Kinson and Northbourne! The intention of this little magazine is to give you an easy reference guide to local trades and businesses, so please use the advertisers inside! They all want to help make this Christmas a special one for you. Do mention The Kinson and Northbourne Directory when making any calls. I love to hear that the advertisers are hearing from you. This makes all the difference, and makes our work all worth while. The index at the back gives you the full array of businesses. From blinds, to vets, to insurance, childrens’ activities, kitchens, fire alarms, chimney sweeps and many more. We also have some local information for you from East Dorset N Gauge Society, The Friends of Kinson Common and Kinson School & Village Memories. If you have a local club or society please give me a call as we can promote you for free! There is also our ‘Nellie Story’ which is the Dorset Publication’s Campervan. This month she took us a little further away, to Brighton. You can read about our weekend in the cold, fresh night air on pages 20 and 21. It has taken me a little while longer to get into the Christmas spirit this year, but I have to say I am now really looking forward to my parents coming to visit and that all important turkey dinner. For me that is what this time of year is all about - family, friends, good food and a little bit of magic in the air. I hope you have something special planned. Stephen and Myself Wish you All a Really Merry Christmas and a Very Successful 2014! Very best wishes,

Debbie & Stephen Corney

Friends of Kinson Common Since our formation in 1999, the Friends have helped Bournemouth Borough Council’s Countryside Officer’s manage Kinson Common, a Local Nature Reserve and Site of Special Scientific Interest as Countryside Volunteers. Our volunteer work includes litter-picking, guided walks, wildlife recording and monitoring the site for anti-social behaviour such as arson, as well as liasing with residents and visitors about any problems that may occur on site. We have also placed bird and bat boxes around the site and are also undertaking surveys of fungi and moths as well as planning other projects for future records. In Autumn/Winter time jobs such as scrub and gorse clearance are carried out. New volunteers are always welcome!

A brief history of the common Our part of Kinson has proved extremely rich in archaeological evidence of life in Prehistoric times. Palaeoliths from the Old Stone Age were found on site in 1927 and many rolled palaeoliths and Levallois flakes were discovered between 1927 and 1934. These were placed in the Calkin Collection in the British Museum. Other discoveries of palaeoliths from Kinson were placed in the Rothesay Museum, Bournemouth and in the County Museum at Dorchester. Smaller flint implements from the Neolithic and Bronze Age have been found on the surface of our Common in the recent past. Members of the Friends have also found implements

and fossils on the site. Two Bronze Age Barrows survive in fair condition on Two Barrow Heath. The western one is a Saucer barrow and the eastern one a Bowl barrow. Both are particularly important as they are the only ones left intact throughout the area covering Kinson to the nearby Turbary Common. Prior to the Norman Conquest, Canford (including Kinson) was held by Ulwen, a Saxon thane. William the Conquerer bestowed the manor on Walter de Eureux, whose family later became Earls of Shaftesbury. In 1611, Henry, Earl of Huntingdon, sold Canford to John Webb of Salisbury, who was created a Baronet and the estate remained in family hands for two centuries. John Potter, a local smuggler, farmed a considerable area of the Common during the time when Isaac Gulliver owned property and land in Kinson. During the 19th century, Charles Spencer and Thomas Williams, of the Dolphin Inn, Kinson, farmed most of Kinson Common as tenants of the Canford estate. In 1844, the Canford estate was sold to Sir Josiah John Guest, a South Wales iron-master. All the land we now call Kinson Common remained in the ownership of the Guest family until gifted to or purchased by the Borough of Bournemouth. Gravel has been extracted from the Common and the outline of an old farm building may be found near the eastern end of Two Barrow Heath. In 2002, there were 22 ancient earth boundaries still surviving reasonably intact.

Your fundraising efforts make a real difference

Your fundraising efforts over the last two successful Jigsaw Appeals, to raise money for cancer and blood disorders and women’s health, are now being put to use. Work on the new Jigsaw build project at the Royal Bournemouth Hospital is now well underway, with the preparation work having started in October. This is the first step in providing brand new purposebuilt cancer and blood disorder and women’s health facilities for local patients. The new Jigsaw building will be situated between the Eye Unit and the Derwent Suite for Orthopaedics, and will bring together oncology, haematology, gynaecology, breast care and early pregnancy. It will provide more space for rapidly expanding outpatient and day case treatments and will ensure better privacy and dignity for patients. After three successful Jigsaw Appeals our fundraising efforts have now expanded to raise money for all departments across the Royal Bournemouth and Christchurch hospitals under the banner of the Bournemouth Hospital Charity - and you can get involved. Lindsey Sturman, Fundraising Manager, explains: “Through the Jigsaw Appeals our supporters have raised nearly £6m which is fantastic. Our staff and the public now wanted to focus efforts on fundraising that would help all areas in the hospital. The Bournemouth Hospital Charity does exactly this.” Last year £1.2m of charitable funds were spent on items such as medical equipment and research, all directly benefiting the patient experience above and beyond what the NHS can afford. For example your donations funded exercise classes for oncology patients and each year we provide small patient gestures, such as presents, for those unfortunate enough to be an inpatient on Christmas Day. We must say a big thank you to our supporters who continue to organise fundraising activities. Here are just a small few: • Thomson Airways who have raised over £21,000 from onboard collections and who have chosen us as their Bournemouth charity of the year for 2013/2014. • Two of our consultants took part in an epic cycle challenge from Land’s End to John O’Groats and raised more than £7,500 for the Trust’s Rheumatology Department and Endoscopy Department.

• The Luff family who raised £3,500 for ITU and the new Cancer and Blood Disorders Unit by organising a special fun day as a thank you for the great care received at the Royal Bournemouth Hospital by their son Sean Luff. All of your money helps us to provide an even better patient experience above and beyond what the NHS can afford. How you can get involved: • organise your own fundraising event • take part in a hospital charity organised event • make a donation • consider leaving a gift or legacy • volunteer • be a corporate sponsor of one of the charity events Some Bournemouth Hospital Charity events: • Tree of Light Service for the Jigsaw Building in the main atrium at the Royal Bournemouth Hospital on Monday 16 December • March for Men raising funds for prostate cancer from Bournemouth Pier to Sandbanks on Sunday 2 March 2014 • Twilight Walk for Women starting at Bournemouth Pier on Friday 6 June 2014 • Football Tournament at the Littledown Centre on Sunday 20 July 2014 How you can keep in touch: • visit our website: www.bournemouthhospitalcharity.org.uk • email charity@rbch.nhs.uk • call 01202 704060 • visit us in the Charity Office in the main atrium of the Royal Bournemouth Hospital • follow us on Twitter @bmthhospcharity or • like us on Facebook www.facebook.com/ bournemouthhospitalcharity

East Dorset N Gauge Society Our group was started by Yvonne and Michael Shillabeer. He called a meeting of local N Gauge Society members at Pelhams in 1993. Michael missed the first meeting, as he was in hospital, so it was Yvonne that started us off. Around 20 members attended, a committee was formed, and it was decided to form a proper Area Group, affiliated to the N Gauge Society. At first we just brought along stock, and chatted, but then the possibility of building a group layout was discussed. This was soon ruled out due to lack of storage space. Some of us still wanted to create something, so a modular system where each person could build a small part of a layout was devised. In 2005 we decided to hold our own exhibition at Pelhams in October 2007, this gave us the incentive to re-lay the fiddle yard track and change the electrical connections to all modules.

We have around 19 members who regularly attend, and will make newcomers most welcome at our meetings, which are held at the Kinson Community Centre at around 7:30pm on the second and fourth Fridays of each month.

Tastes so good...

GRANNY’S XMAS PUDDING

The stout in this recipe will add the moisture to the pudding and the cocoa powder makes the pudding look lovely and dark. Ingredients: 1oz mixed peel 1oz ground almonds 2 medium sized eggs ¼ teaspoon almond essence 2 teaspoons brandy 1 can of stout 2 teaspoons cocoa powder ¼ teaspoon nutmeg ¼ teaspoon baking powder ¼ teaspoon mixed spice 4oz plain flour 4oz breadcrumbs 4oz beef suet 4oz brown sugar 4oz raisins 4oz sultanas 4oz glace cherries 1 grated lemon rind ½ apple grated ½ carrot grated

Equipment: 2 pint pyrex bowl, pudding bowl, clean tea towel or pudding cloth. Method: Place all the dry ingredients in a large bowl and mix together. Add the eggs and the brandy and mix then pour in the stout gradually and keep stirring until your mixture is the consistency of a loose cake mix. Grease your pudding bowl with a little butter and pour in the pudding mix. Cover with foil and then a tea towel or pudding cloth and tie it to the top of the bowl, this is to prevent any water getting in. Place in a large boiling pan and fill with water ¾ of the way up the side of the bowl. Boil on a moderate heat for 6 hours keep topping up the water with boiled kettle water if the level starts to drop. When the pudding is ready turn it out and leave to cool. These puddings can be stored wrapped in foil from now until Christmas, to reheat just place the pudding back in the bowl and boil for another 2 hours on Christmas day. Can be served with a sprinkling of icing sugar on the top or pour on ¼ brandy and light for a flaming Christmas pudding Lindsay Crozier & photographs by Nigel Maisey

We NEED you! Have you ever thought about becoming an on-call firefighter with Dorset Fire & Rescue? Fire stations across Dorset are recruiting for oncall firefighters – a part-time job which could save lives. We had a chat with Deputy Area Commander for Dorset, Craig Baker to explain what’s involved and how you can sign up.

Soon after your appointment you will have to travel to our Training Centre to complete a Basic Retained Training course. We provide ongoing training in the form of a drill night each week at your fire station.

What is an on-call/retained or part-time firefighter? An on-call firefighters is someone who is able to work part-time for Dorset Fire and Rescue Service and who is able to respond to his or her local fire station when needed, to deal with an emergency. It might be someone who is in other full time or part-time employment or is a carer and is keen to support their local community. Local emergency services form an important part of our community. Firefighters do a whole range of jobs from fighting fires to helping at all sorts of incidents. As a retained firefighter you might be called to floods, road traffic collisions or chemical spills as well as fires.

So do I have to be on call all the time? No, the number of contracted hours you are on call will depend on the amount of time you can give each week. The number of hours will be dependent on your work or other commitments and will be agreed following a discussion with the station commander of your fire station. How do I apply? Full details of the role of an on-call firefighter together with an application form can be found on our website; www.dorsetfire.gov.uk. If you would like any further information please visit your local fire station.

What kind of person can become an on-call firefighter? Anyone can be an on-call firefighter, provided that they are over 18 and are both physically and medically fit. You do not need any formal qualifications for the job but you should have good reasoning and numeracy skills. You must be someone with commitment as you could be disturbed from your work or your home at any time of the day or night. If you are able to respond from work you will need to get the permission and support of your employer. Your employer is likely to expect you to make up the time you have missed when responding to an emergency. What kind of training do you get? To begin with, you will have to complete a number of tests to show that you have the right skills and fitness to be a firefighter. If you are successful in these tests you will then be asked to attend an interview at your local station. Finally, you will need to attend a medical and eyesight test.

Deputy Area Commander for Dorset, Craig Baker

Will your hearing prevent you enjoying the time with your friends and family this Christmas? It won’t be long before the festive season is upon us and many people will be planning to spend time with friends and family. This should be a happy time but if you have a hearing loss then much of the pleasure will be lost. Not understanding what is being said in a busy or noisy environment can make you feel isolated even when you’re surrounded by friends and family. This situation can be frustrating not only for the person experiencing hearing difficulties but also for those trying to communicate with them. People with hearing difficulties often find they gradually withdraw from social situations as they start to enjoy them less and less. The truth is that living life to the fullest includes hearing well. Local hearing experts Clarity Hearing Solutions can help. Their three qualified Hearing Aid

Audiologists have established a reputation for expert, friendly, independent hearing care. Their unique approach includes a free hearing assessment, prompt appointments, home visits when needed, a wide range of hearing solutions and free, ongoing aftercare.

Kinson School and Village Memories In 1949 my family moved to Kinson and my late sister Valerie, aged 9 and I, Hazel (Stone), aged 8, went to Kinson Junior School until we were 11 years old. We were both in the same class until we left and went to the senior school. At that time the headmistress was Miss Ward. We very much enjoyed being at the school and being involved in school sports. My best friends were Nicky Cole and Jackie Davy. Occasionally we went to Pelhams for nature study, collecting leaves and fir cones and taking them back to school to draw. The things I remember about Kinson itself were the flower show when we saved up to buy the plants, flowers and craft items and in particular Pavey’s bakery as they sold lovely bread, hot cross buns and lardy cakes. When I was 13 I did a paper round for Smith’s in Kinson and delivered them up to Bear Cross. At weekends we went to watch my father and brother Bill play cricket. Other weekends we went to Longham to have a picnic and fish in the river. We also bathed in the river in the summer.

Hazel receiving her grant from the Hall & Woodhouse Community Chest Awards

Because I enjoyed my school days so much I started the “Kinson School and Village Memories” project with my late husband Martin and it has proved very successful in reuniting many old school friends, including children who were evacuated to Kinson School from Southampton. I was very lucky to get Lottery funding to get started. This project is still ongoing and I am always looking for new photographs to add to my collection. I often have exhibitions of these photographs on display boards in the main corridor at Kinson Community Centre, also in their café, and display them in their main hall whenever they have their “Table top sales”. I also supplied most of the photographs for the large montage at the back of the Kinson Hub. I have also loaned pictures to a lot of people that have written local history books. My displays have also been shown at local fetes, church halls, day centres, flower shows and many more events. It is my full intention to keep this project going as long as possible.

The Adventures of Nellie The Dorset Publications Camper Van Well this month we actually went further afield and Nellie took us to see friends in Brighton. Previously I have called us ‘fair weather campers’ so this month I thought we would brave the cold overnight and see if we survived! Well I am here to tell the tale, so I guess you could say that we did. Hayden had a sleep over much to his delight at Connor’s house. He very eagerly said “Goodbye Mummy!” as Stephen and I left in the rather nippy night air to find where we were staying. We are members of Brit Stops, having paid a small fee of £25 for the year. This gives us access to hundreds of pubs, farms and farm shops where we are able to stay in the Campervan for free for the night. This time we stayed at The Tavern at Telscombe, just outside of Brighton. We arrived in the dark and parked up. Having remembered the coffee but not the tea, we decided to go into the pub and get a cuppa. I must admit I felt a bit old entering the dwelling, with lots of local young people and rather loud music playing. Stephen just walked through to the back and much to our delight there was a roaring fire hidden behind the wall with two very comfortable

Brandy by the real log fire!

The view from the “bedroom” window arm chairs! Such a site to behold… There was no tea, but a small (honestly) glass of brandy went down very well! So now it was time to brave the autumn breeze and settle down for the night. We had bought a hot water bottle on route and Nellie’s whistling kettle was much appreciated for something other than a cuppa! We kept the roof down to keep in as much warmth as we could and snuggled in. We were on a very slight slope which meant blood was rushing to my head! To save me passing out, I asked Stephen to park the other way round and then my feet could benefit from the extra blood flow. Much more comfortable…The wind was blustering around the van and I really liked the feeling of being warm and protected in our little ‘den’. I woke up once in the middle of the night with a very cold nose. I did wish I had brought a woolly hat, but I soon curled up, warmed up and went back to sleep. We didn’t wake up particularly early which I thought was a good sign and much to our amazement when we opened the curtains, we had a sea view! Having parked in the dark we had paid no attention to where we actually were… at least we weren’t hanging off the cliff edge! I put the kettle on and we sat having


21 a lovely cup of coffee watching the clear blue sky and very calm sea. Bliss. I left the gas stove on for 20 minutes to warm the van as we got dressed and that made all the difference. Our very own heater. We then set off to see if Hayden had got any sleep. The previous day he had mischievously said, with a wistful glint in his eye, “I wonder if Connor will have a midnight snack...?” The boys were very excited when we arrived, fully awake having had a full English breakfast. We took them out to see the sights of Brighton, so onto the Pier we went. One thing to note about Brighton is that parking is expensive. The car parks also do not cater for vans well, as the headroom just isn’t enough. We managed to find a spot in the town centre which was £6 for two hours. It was just enough time to play and then decide what we would do next. It was a gorgeous day, very bright, sunny and crisp. On the pier we bought 30 tokens for £20 which was the cheapest deal. The boys had great fun on the dodgems. I have to say that Hayden’s driving left a lot to be desired, and if he wants to be a pilot, as he keeps telling us, he will have to learn a few skills! It was hilarious watching him spin, then suddenly shoot backwards as he turned the wheel too sharply. This was the first time Hayden was able to go on the rides on his own, due to his height, so it was all very exciting for him. The Waltzers were

Nellie says goodbye to the Brighton Eye

Hang on tight for the Twister! equally entertaining and I am happy to say that the boys did not go on The Booster ride which made my legs go like jelly just watching it! The people we did see on it, seemed to love it, so if you have a head for heights and like being spun high in the air, above the waves of the sea, then this is the one for you! Personally I think I am getting old, as once upon a time I may well have given this a go. After leaving the Pier with the amusements and fair, Nellie took us to have fish and chips, again overlooking the sea. We found a free parking spot! The boys excitedly put the roof up and went ‘upstairs’ while Stephen and I chilled out, drinking another cup of coffee made with Nellie’s whistling kettle. To finish the day off we all went down to the pebbly beach and threw stones into the gently rippling waves. Connor was very pleased with himself as he managed to skim the stones twice, bouncing them softly on the water. Well done Connor! A great weekend was had by all. This would not have happened without ‘Our Nellie’ with her long black skirts and whistling kettle! Where will Nellie go next… find out in the next edition of The Kinson & Northbourne Directory!

Talking about Wildlife...

The Robin

Traditionally seen as a cheerful symbol of Christmas, the robin is frequently depicted on Christmas cards, and a national favourite amongst birds. It is broadly distributed around the UK, and a familiar sight in parks, gardens and woodlands. Robins are very friendly with humans, and with time, can become tame and feed from your hand. Winter-time especially is a good time to help them out as food is scarce during the cold months, and they will happily accept anything from kitchen scraps to cakes. Make sure, though, that once you start a feeding routine, you stay with it, as the birds will become reliant on the food source. For the rest of the year, the robin menu is a varied mix of seeds, berries, fruits and worms. The male and the female are identical in appearance with the bright red breast and brown wings and back. The young robins

are a duller brown until about two or three months of age, when they gain their famous red colour. Robins build their nests in hidden spots near the ground, often very close to humans, and breed twice a year, from March onward. Its adorable appearance and cheerful disposition has made the robin very popular with humans, but amongst themselves and rivals they are fiercely territorial, with their red breast acting as a warning signal. The British robin is mainly residential, with small numbers migrating to Southern Europe for the winter. The robin is a fantastic wildlife spot as it is easily recognisable and its territorial song can be heard all year round, even on Christmas day, with the male and female songs sounding identical.

Solicitor’s marathon challenge for premature baby charity Charlotte Dollimore, a property solicitor at Humphries Kirk LLP in Parkstone, completed the Bournemouth Marathon in October to raise vital funds for a charity which cared for her niece who was born prematurely. Charlotte, now 40, completed the 26.2 mile route in 4 hours and 38 minutes which was under her target time and has so far raised more than £800. The funds have gone directly to the charity BLISS which provides care and support for premature and sick babies as well as their families.

raise funds for BLISS to help support the premature and special baby units and give many more tiny babies the best possible start in life.” In the fi rst weeks, months and year of Ruby’s life she defi ed all odds to become a strong and cheerful little girl who has recently taken her first steps. Charlotte added: “I found the last few miles a huge struggle, but seeing my family cheering me on was a real emotional moment and gave me the push I needed to sprint to the finish line.”

Charlotte’s niece Ruby was the inspiration behind her fundraising. She was born almost 12 weeks before her due date as a result of Charlotte’s sister suffering from a severe and lifethreatening form of pre-eclampsia. To train for the marathon Charlotte ran 34 miles per week for 16 weeks leading up to the event. In the past Charlotte has completed 5km, 10km and half marathon runs. Charlotte said: “The marathon was one of the toughest mental and physical challenges I have ever done. But compared to what Ruby, my sister and her husband went through last year, it has been a walk in the park. “I will never forget the day I met Ruby through an incubator, weighing just 2lb 3oz. The support my family received in hospital was amazing and I wanted to
