Merry Christmas Christchurch, Highcliffe, Mudeford & Burton! I truly cannot believe that a whole year has passed by. Hayden, our son, had his 8th Birthday last week so we were extra busy with a family bowling trip to Tower Park, followed a few days later with a party at Snowtrax. Life is one big party at this age‌ I wonder why we change it? Maybe we should switch the TV off, forget the news, get the old fashion games out of the loft and actually talk to each other. Just an idea. Christmas is certainly a good time for families and we will definitely be playing board games as well as a few electronic ones to keep our youngest generation happy. I love it and I hope you do too. We have a full little magazine for you this month, so do take the time to look through. When calling any of the advertisers inside please mention The Christchurch Directory. This makes all the difference. The lucky winner of the prize wordsearch and the pair of tickets for the State of Undress Festive Show was Mrs Martyn. The family ticket to see Jack and the Beanstalk at the Bournemouth Pavilion went to Serena Coley. I hope you both have great nights out! This month there is a Champagne Hamper for the winner, so good luck with that one! We also have an additional game‌ can you spot how many Father Christmas with Rudolf pictures there are hidden in the magazine?? There is a bottle of wine for the first person to send the correct answer in. See the form on page 25! Steve and I here at Dorset Publications wish you a really Happy Christmas and a Wonderful New Year. Whatever you do, keep smiling! All the Very Best,

Crowds enjoy Christchurch Christmas Festival Families turned out in their thousands to greet Father Christmas and his reindeer when they flew into Christchurch for the Christmas Festival on Saturday. The weather was kind and the Christmas Market and the new Christmas Craft Fair reported good business all day. Entertainment was provided throughout the day with Christchurch Community Partnership’s Magical Moment in the marquee in Saxon Square featuring performances from Christchurch Music Centre, Christchurch Junior School, Highcliffe Charity Players, Royal British Legion Band, Jabez Smith, the Funky Little Choir, Pure Funk, Mudeford Infants and local bands Wild Fire, Blues Machine and Fish Out Of Water.

crowd for the countdown to the lights switch-on. Paul Riley, chairman of the Christchurch Christmas Festival committee, said: "This was one of our most successful Festivals as we were blessed with good weather and I'm sure everyone had a good time. There was a huge crowd who came to see Father Christmas and his reindeer and the atmosphere was fantastic. This is a great community event in Christchurch and we really have to thank the many volunteers who give up so much of their time to make it such a success."

State of Undress and Jan’s Gems troop of belly dancers were among some of the entertainers in the street. In Bargates the Christchurch Baptist Church held their Messy Christmas and also invited people to dress up and ‘get in the picture’ in a nativity scene with real miniature donkeys. As darkness fell Father Christmas and his reindeer paraded down Bargates from Peeks Partystore to join the crowds in the High Street who had been entertained from the balcony of the Mayor’s Parlour by Heart FM presenters Dan Mills and Warren Hayden. Chris Jarvis and Nick Wilton were also on hand dressed as Silly Billy and Dame Trott from the Bournemouth International Centre’s pantomime Jack and the Beanstalk. The Mayor of Christchurch, Cllr Sue Spittle joined the Heart presenters and the

December’s Gardening Tips From Paul Chatfield of Chatfield’s Garden & Property Services Fruit In favourable conditions fruit trees can be Trees and Shrubs Always give your plants good thoughts!

Trees and shrubs can still be planted, however be careful with the roots when moving and try not to disturb too much soil, also none frosty conditions.

Climbers and Wall-Plants Planting can still be carried out now good supporting methods should be used. Training and cleaning up of leaves.

Roses Support roses over the winter to save from damage, leaves should be cleared up, healthy ones can be composted and diseased ones burnt.

Borders and Beds Planting and supporting can still be carried out if conditions are not frosty. Protect plants if necessary with a good mulch or straw.

Bulbs and Corms Hand weed or hoe weed seeds to keep down for the spring flowering, during mild spells.

Rock Gardens and Pools

planted, pruning can still be carried out on apple and pears only.

Vegetables Time for your seeds to be ordered before Christmas. Some vegetables in open g ro u n d w o u l d b e n e f it f ro m s om e protection.

Greenhouse and Frame Glass needs washing and disinfectant applied. Insulation should be done. This will obviously cut down costs for working greenhouses.

House Plants Be careful not to water too much, it is easy to make the compost too soggy so the roots would then lack air, ideal temps are from 50-70 degrees Fahrenheit. Chatfield’s Garden & Property Services North 2, Sway Storage & Workshops Barrows Lane, Sway, Lymington Hants, SO41 6DD

Seeds of many alpines cannot germinate successfully unless exposed to a period of freezing or snow, which in their native habitats breaks dormancy.

Lawns If ground is not wet or sticky spiking to improve aeration can be carried out, during mild weather, a sprinkling of sharp sand can be good also.

PAWNBROKERS, UNMARRIED GIRLS, ABERDEEN AND THIEVES: ALSO CHILDREN AND RUSSIA AND GREECE What have all these got in common? Well of course! Everyone knows! • • • • • • • • But if you’re the only one not to know, you need to be told that Saint Nicholas is the patron saint of all these groups of people. And even more groups could have been added: – sailors, merchants, chemists, perfume-makers, travellers, scholars – and, bringing up the rear, parish clerks! He’s patron saint of all of them! And of course Saint Nicholas is just another name for that wonderful old gentleman who’s coming down a chimney near you on Christmas Eve! Seriously speaking, Santa Claus – whose name of course derives from Saint Nicholas – was one of the most popular saints in Christendom, and the legends w hich on c e surr ound ed him ar e extraordinary. One of these legends tells how he brought three boys back to life after they’d been pickled in brine by a wicked inn-keeper to make meat pies. Another legend describes how he rescued three girls from a life of prostitution by giving each of them a bag of gold. These bags of gold are still remembered in the sign of three balls above pawnbrokers’ shops, and Nicholas’s generosity began our custom of giving gifts at Christmas. High-street shops should be grateful to him.

CD December 2011 page 20

Yet another legend describes how he calmed the seas during a storm, and so helped to save sailors from shipwreck. He even managed to locate and save a golden cup which had been lost overboard. Nothing was too difficult for him! In fact, all the legends described above are carved on the fascinating 11th century square font in Winchester Cathedral. It’s made of black marble coming from present-day Belgium, and when you are next in Winchester, it’s well worth spending time looking really closely at the carvings on two of its four sides. But, stripping away the somewhat fanciful legends, who was the man behind the saint? Who was the real Nicholas? In a nutshell, he was a 4th century Turkish bishop who lived in Myra. In 1087, after a tussle with the Muslims, his bones were taken off for safety to Bari, on the south eastern coast of Italy – near where the ‘ankle’ might be said to be located. Here a big church was built for him and his remains were buried in its crypt - and he lies there still. His legends were so numerous, and his miracles so famous that Bari began to attract thousands of pilgrims. His fame then quickly spread all over Europe, churches were dedicated to him and artists depicted him everywhere.

Find us online at www.thechristchurchdirectory.co.uk Early Dutch settlers took the St Nicholas cult to America, and then in the nineteenth century the Americans exported him back to Europe, but this time he was confusingly mixed up with various Nordic legends, wearing a red coat and accompanied by reindeer. But seriously, any child will tell you he now lives in Lapland. David Hilliam • • • • • • • •

Regent Centre Panto — Red Riding Hood For their 40th panto, the award-winning Highcliffe Charity Players have chosen Red Riding Hood – their first production of this popular classic in 25 years – staged over ten p e r f o rm a nc e s a t t h e R e ge n t C e n t r e , Christchurch, from 21st to 28th January 2012. Who’s afraid of the Big Bad Wolf? Well in John Morley’s hysterical adaptation of this wellloved fairy tale, the good villagers of Trumpeting-on-the Marsh are certainly a bit apprehensive. But our lovable heroine, Red Riding Hood, has got her dear old Granny Hood to look after her, not to mention the suave Forester from London, Jason Gr e e nwoo d. A l so o n h a n d ar e po tty ploughman Tom Foolery, comic farmhands Nutz and Boltz and the magic powers of Fiona the Forest Fairy. Surely they can save innocent Red (‘Why Granny, what big teeth you’ve got’) from the Wicked Wolf (‘All the better to eat you with my dear!’)? Well maybe, but ‘Camp’ Dracula is vamping it up in his castle and he’s had a hard day’s night. It’s certainly going to be a panto with bite! HCP’s Red Riding Hood once again showcases the Company’s celebrated panto ingredients sumptuous sets and costumes, show stopping songs and dazzling dance routines, plus the usual happy quota of knockabout humour and audience participation. Directing his first panto is HCP’s Richard Facer: “Having now played both a pantomime Dame and a baddie, I thought it was time to try my hand at directing,” he says. He has teamed up with Bournemouth based American performer, choreographer and teacher, Cara Bowen, returning to choreograph her second panto with HCP. Ian Carter, the Player’s long time Musical Director, conducts. Following her great success as Beauty (in Beauty and the Beast) last year, 17-year-old Coral Norton now plays Red Riding Hood prior to singing with the 100-strong Youth Music Voices during the London Olympics 2012 – and HCP newcomer, Chris Moore,

CD December 2011 page 26

makes his panto debut as her hero, Jason Greenwood. “Earlier this year (2011) we celebrated our 40th anniversary - the same year that the Regent Centre celebrated its 80th anniversary,” says HCP Chairman, Georgina Smith. “It was great to be involved in the Regent’s 80th celebrations and we look forward now to having fun in our 40th pantomime. I am very pleased with the terrific cast, which includes both much loved HCP members and some new, equally talented people. Red Riding Hood runs at the Regent Centre for ten performances from Saturday 21st to Saturday 28th January 2012 – including three weekend matinees and two popular Teatime Shows (at 5.30pm) when audiences can meet the cast after the performance. As usual, profits from the show will be donated to charity. Tickets (£8.50-£12.50) are on sale both at the Regent Centre Box Office (01202 499199) and online: www.regentcentre.co.uk/panto For more information see the HCP website: www.highcliffecharityplayers.com

JACK AND THE BEANSTALK THE BOURNEMOUTH PAVILION PANTOMIME SATURDAY 3 DECEMBER 2011 – MONDAY 2 JANUARY 2012 After spectacularly breaking box office records with ‘Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs’ in 2009, and following the overwhelming success of ‘Cinderella’ last year - UK Productions brings you a giant pro duc ti o n o f ‘ J a ck a nd th e Beanstalk’, this year’s Bournemouth Pavilion Pantomime. Make sure the whole family is full of beans this Christmas and follow the hilarious tale of the ups and downs of young Jack Trott played by Debra Stevenson (The Impressions Show & Coronation Street), the boy who manages to sell the family’s only valuable possession, Daisy the Cow, for a handful of beans (and they weren’t even Heinz!). He ends up having to climb a giant beanstalk into the clouds and a whole heap of trouble, to retrieve the cow and to try and impress the King. Jack is helped and hindered along the way by his less than bright brother Silly Billy played by CBeebies

CD December 2011 page 28

star and Bournemouth panto favourite Chris Jarvis, the Good Fairy, Kate Weston from Wave 105, and his long-suffering mother Dame Trott played hilariously by one of the country’s top panto dames, Nick Wilton better known as Mr Lister from Eastenders. Join Jack on his quest to defeat the evil Giant Blunderbore and his nasty henchman Fleshcreep played by Brian Capron (Coronation Street’s bad boy Richard Hillman), to win not only his fortune but also the hand of the Kings beautiful daughter. The whole production is complimented by lavish costumes and a sumptuous set and promises to be yet another spectacular success from producers UK Productions. It’s a giant of a pantomime…don’t miss it!
