What’s On at Lighthouse, Poole

What’s On

Romeo and Juliet

Tues 4th to Thur 6th March 7pm - Tickets: £12, Family: £40 Wed mat.: 1:30pm, Thur mat.: 10:30am Box Clever Theatre Company bring their critically acclaimed production of Romeo and Juliet to Lighthouse, Poole’s Centre for the Arts from 4 – 6 March. Adapted by Box Clever’s Artistic Director, Michael Wicherek, the company’s production skilfully interweaves the traditional script with modern text and is specifically designed to excite younger audiences. A cast of three bring the dynamic three-dimensional steel set to life in this exciting piece of physical theatre. Romeo and Juliet is no gentle, romantic tale of young love gone tragically awry. The love that drives the action is fiercely passionate, fired by the youth and energy of the couple at its centre, and played out against the background of a claustrophobic city, ineptly governed and frequently rocked by deadly street violence. The addition of a Narrator not only brings to life those characters who circle the lovers, from the earthily practical Nurse to the potentially ambiguous Friar Lawrence, but also interrogates and challenges the couple and thus encourages the audience to do the same. The performance will be directed by Iqbal Khan, whose theatre credits are impressive, with directing projects for the National Theatre, the RSC and a collection of West End theatres. Iqbal is joined by an impressive and dynamic cast. Jessie Dubieniec brings youth and innocence to Juliet. She trained

at the prestigious BRIT School, following in the footsteps of many cultural icons and leading to what has started off as an exciting career in theatre, film and television. Taking the role of young Romeo is David Ajao. This talented actor has been in great demand since graduating from Rose Bruford College, starring in theatre roles with the Oval House and Old Vic as well as acquiring film credits to his name. Carl Chambers returns to work with Box Clever once more this time as the Narrator, expertly weaving the story together and bringing to life key characters from Shakespeare’s iconic tragedy such as the Nurse, Friar Lawrence and Mercutio. Their passionate love and the risks the lovers take find visual expression in the dynamic set designed by Lucy Osborne, and the journey to their ultimate tragedy is accompanied by live music from DJ and musician Virgil Howe.

Church members peak with charity donation Members of the Church of Scientology in Poole presented Lewis-Manning Hospice with a cheque following last year’s Welsh 3 Peaks challenge, which saw the group raise money for the charity by climbing to the summit of Wales’ highest 3 peaks in as many days.

wife had need of their help a few years ago. She had cancer and came to the hospice for some treatment briefly. That was in 2009. She did lose her battle, sadly, and passed away in 2010. So, from a personal point of view at least, supporting your work is something I am very willing to do.”

The very physical challenge saw the team complete all the routes and collectively raised over £1200 for the hospice, which supports over 650 local people living with cancer and other lifelimiting illnesses.

Martin adds, “Lewis Manning Hospice, through their work, are clearly an asset to us and often we need them for some harrowing times in life. I can’t imagine a tougher job to do every day.”

The Poole branch undertake a challenge at least once a year for a local charity and this year picked Lewis-Manning for quite personal reasons. Martin Budden, one of the group, explains, “We picked Lewis-Manning as they are known for what they do, and it is something that takes quite some courage. From my own point of view, my

Sara Johnson, Community Fundraiser at LewisManning, said, “We are so thankful to have been supported from this tremendous effort by Martin and Megan and the group. It is humbling when members of community push themselves to take on such physically demanding challenges to help support our patients and their families during very distressing times.”

Planning for your future care Throughout our busy lives, we make arrangements for life events such as getting married, having a baby or writing a will. But most of us will not have thought about planning our end of life care, or having these discussions with our loved ones so that they know what we would want. This would be particularly important if we were to go on to lose the ability to make decisions for ourselves. At The Royal Bournemouth and Christchurch Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust we want to provide good end of life care for our patients. This might mean they spend their last days in their place of choice, comfortable, and with their families and friends. For us to give good end of life care, we need to know about your wishes so that we can do our best to meet them. If you are able to make your wishes known, we will do our best to follow them wherever possible. The Macmillan Unit at Christchurch Hospital offers specialist inpatient care to patients at the end of life, and support to their families. The team based at the Macmillan Unit also offer specialist advice 24 hours a day to help deal with problems in the community and in the acute hospital, which is where people are cared for through their final days. Advance care planning involves talking to your family, friends and health professionals (GP, nurse or hospital doctor) about what is important to you, so that they are able to work with you to plan for what you want. This becomes particularly important if you later become less well and are unable to tell people your wishes. You may want to talk about: • where you would want to be cared for - some people say that they would want to stay at home if they become less well. However, this may not be a realistic choice in some circumstances, for instance, if you live alone

• are there certain treatments that you would not want? Do you need to find out more about your options? Some treatments may cause more harm than good. For example, cardiopulmonary resuscitation on a frail elderly patient is rarely successful and frequently causes harm such as fractured ribs • your wishes and preferences - how do you prefer things? - would you rather have a side room or share a bay with others? • do you like to sleep with the lights on? Is there anyone in particular that you would want to visit you? • do you have religious beliefs that are important to you and that you would want to be considered if you were at the end of your life? • who you would like to be consulted on your behalf if you were unable to make your own decisions? • practical things, such as who would look after your pets • how to let people know your wishes Regardless of where you may spend your final days, good advance care planning is important so that others can take your wishes into consideration. It ensures that your preferences are known and gives you a degree of control. At our hospitals there are a number of things we are doing to ensure that we can provide good end of life care and support to our patients and their families: • we have appointed a dedicated nurse to support patients at the end of life • all wards have an end of life care champion - a member of nursing staff with particular expertise • there are monthly teaching sessions open to all staff • the Macmillan Unit is providing advance care planning training for staff in the community The NHS in Dorset has produced an advance care planning guide to help you prepare for the future and assist with practical arrangements.

Wildlife Wonders on my Doorstep One of the joys of Wildlife Photography, particularly if working with “macro” or close-up equipment, is the never ending wealth of suitable subjects within easy reach of your own doorstep. When introduced as a Wildlife Photographer you can see that people’s mental picture is of you wrestling with a crocodile or swinging an elephant round by its trunk. Scarce a thought is given to the myriad smaller life forms that surround us in whatever our chosen walk of life and which serve to make up that inter-connecting living web that we call “Wildlife”. After many years of working with Nature in this way I am delighted to be able to share some of the wonderful images I have accumulated with a double-bill of Wildlife Wonders at the Barrington Theatre in Ferndown on the 15th March. The afternoon presentation is devoted to “Wildlife Wonders of the British Isles” and depicts a wealth of species from the length and breadth of Gt Britain and the evening show covers a small section of the British Isles but as its title of “Wildlife Wonders Home and Away” implies there is also some dramatic coverage of other parts of the world with Zimbabwe and the Falkland Islands especially featured together with many images from the mountain tops of Mainland Europe. Prices have been kept deliberately low so that as many as possible can have the chance of sharing these images with me. For those wishing to join, the Wildlife Trusts and RSPB membership teams should be in attendance. Brian Pettit

Poole history through the ages In 1964 dredgers were working off Brownsea Island in Poole Harbour when they hit something unexpected. Raising the object out of the water, they quickly realised it was something pretty unusual. What on earth could it be, and exactly how old was it? The object turned out to be one half of the Poole Logboat – a vessel that had survived in the water for more than two thousand years. They had stumbled upon one of the largest prehistoric logboats ever found in Britain. The Poole Logboat is evidence of a maritime tradition that continued with medieval boats and Victorian yachts, right up to the present day with Sunseeker building some of the world’s most luxurious yachts here in Poole. There are wealth of fascinating stories such as these which, when linked together, make Poole truly unique. Below is a very brief guide to some of the key events in Poole’s past. To discover more fascinating stories and objects, why not pay Poole Museum a visit? The Iron Age The first evidence of settlement around Poole Harbour is from the Iron Age. Before the Romans, it was assumed that there were no ‘built’ ports in Britain. However an artificial Iron Age mole or jetty has been discovered close to Green Island, the first ever found. It has been dated to the same period as the Poole Logboat – 300BC.

The Poole Logboat

Pottery plate commemorating Harry Paye Roman Times The future Roman Emperor Vespasian used Poole Harbour as an invasion port for his Second Legion Augusta. A road was constructed from Hamworthy to Bradbury Rings and at the Lake Farm site there was a legionary fort of around 40 acres. 1248 At this time the Longespee Charter was granted by the crusader knight William Longespee. Poole gained freedoms that led to the wealth of the town and port in the Middle Ages. One of the oldest buildings in Poole, the Town Cellars, dates from c.1300 and now houses Poole History Centre, part of Poole Museum. In 1405 fighting raged around the building when the town was attacked by Spanish raiders in retaliation for attacks by Harry Paye, the famous Poole Pirate. 1364 In 1364 the Winchelsea Certificate was granted by the Mayor and Barons of the Cinque Port of Winchelsea, confirming Poole’s admiralty, jurisdiction and boundaries. The ceremony of Beating of the Water Bounds comes from this charter. 1568 By the Charter of Queen Elizabeth I in 1568, Poole was created ‘one entire County Corporate in deed and name distinct and altogether separate from the County of Dorset’ and named ‘the County of the Town of Poole’.

Welcome to Poole tile panel, 1950s Georgian Poole Poole has some of the grandest Georgian buildings in Dorset. Most of these were built on the profits of a transatlantic trade with Newfoundland which had huge stocks of cod off its shores. Poole merchants made vast profits from exporting salt cod to Spain, Portugal and Italy. This was also a period when smugglers were active in the area. A smuggling gang - the Hawkhurst Gang - raided Poole Custom House in 1747, an event that led to murder and execution. Napoleonic War The defeat of Napoleon at Waterloo and peace with France and the United States of America signalled the beginning of the end of Poole’s profitable Newfoundland trade. Poole Harbour continued to import flour, meat, timber and skins. China clay mining then came to the Harbour for the Staffordshire potteries. Poole Pottery Poole Pottery’s origin goes back to the Carter family who first came to Poole in the 1870s. Carter and Co.’s main business was architectural products. During the First World War a decorative pottery section was formed. After the First World War, Cyril Carter along with Harold and Phoebe Stabler and John and Gertrude (Truda) Adams formed Carter, Stabler and Adams. Truda Adams (later Truda Carter) was the resident designer, soon supported by a group of skilled ‘paintresses’. Second World War Poole played a full part in the Second World War. It served as a major flying boat base and

its boatyards built many landing craft and other vessels. Operation Overlord saw an armada leave Poole for the D-Day landings. Poole Museum The rich history of the ancient port town of Poole is revealed in four floors of galleries housed in a 19th century quayside warehouse. Displays range from archaeology to art, from pirates to potteries. Highlights include the Iron Age Poole logboat, the largest collection of Poole Pottery on public display, and a replica hide where you can view the birds of Poole Harbour. And it’s completely free!

Don’t bin it - create with it! My name is Barbara Becker; I love the coast, nature and snippets of scenes. I enjoy capturing the essence of what I see. Making use of recyclable materials such as cardboard, tissue from shoe boxes and newspaper to build layers and texture, I then paint using Acrylics. I’d say my work is ‘eco friendly’!

Sometimes my inspiration comes from good composition I’ve seen in a postcard or photo. My paintings can be viewed and bought from Bistro on the Beach at Southbourne or contact me by email on: creativity128@yahoo.com I look forward to hearing from you...

Dream Doors (Poole & Christchurch) Win Checkatrade Award for 2013! 2013 was a fantastic year for us. At our annual conference we were awarded the top award for year on year growth, runner up for overall sales for 2013 but most importantly Checkatrade gave us their award for Dream Doors Franchisee of the year! This prestigious award is reflective of what many of our customers have independently said and scored us on the Checkatrade feedback forms.

Celebrating the opening of the Christchurch showroom

This was a huge achievement for us, and one that we didn’t expect, particularly since we have only just completed our 3rd year of trading. We commenced trading as Dream Doors Poole in January 2011, opening our first showroom in Broadstone in March. Despite this been at the height of the recession, we built on quality products and services, to offer customers a real alternative to the normal kitchen replacement. As a Franchise business we cover the whole of the BH postcode district and soon realised that in order to fully support our customer base we needed to expand. After careful consideration we decided Christchurch would be an ideal location for us, so in October 2013 we became the first Dream Doors Franchise to

open a second showroom. We have carefully designed our showroom to optimise the space and incorporate a wide selection of our products to show our customers how we can transform their kitchen. Since opening the new Christchurch showroom we have continued to go from strength to strength.

Recipe

Tastes so good... PARSNIP QUICHE WITH BLUE CHEESE

This dish can be eaten hot or cold and it’s great for lunch boxes. You can use up leftover cooked veg from the Sunday roast instead of the freshly cooked parsnip. Sweet potato or carrot can be exchanged for the parsnip. Ingredients: Shortcrust pastry: 100g salted butter 200g plain flour 4-5 tbps cold water Filing: 200g parsnip, peeled & sliced 1 shallot, diced 3 eggs 175ml crème fraiche 290ml milk 1/2 tsp mixed spice or korma curry powder 50g good blue cheese 50g ham or cooked bacon Diane Johnson

Equipment: 23cm / 9 inch buttered/greased loose bottomed flan dish. Rolling pin Method: Make the pastry by rubbing the butter into the flour until it resembles bread crumbs. Add sufficient water to bring the pastry together into a ball without it being sticky and leave to rest for half an hour covered in the fridge. Cook the parsnip in boiling water until soft. Leave to cool. Fry off the shallot until soft. Set to one side to cool. Line a 9 inch greased flan dish with the rested pastry. Prick the bottom of the base gently with a fork to stop air bubbles forming. Bake blind (this will avoid the famous "soggy bottom"!) by crumpling baking parchment and placing it in the pastry case being careful not to tear the pastry. Then fill with ceramic baking beans spreading them out evenly. Cook at 450º F for 20 minutes until lightly brown and a little crisp. Remove the paper and beans. Whilst the pastry case is cooking beat the eggs together and add the creme fraiche and milk, incorporating all together with a whisk. Puree or mash the parsnip with the spice or korma and gradually add to the egg mixture until thoroughly mixed. Once the pastry case has come out of the oven dot the base with the blue cheese, onion and ham. Pour the egg mixture into the pastry case and bake on 180ºC for 45 minutes, or until the centre doesn’t wobble.

Adventures of Nellie

The Adventures of Nellie The Dorset Publications Camper Van We had a real treat this month when Nellie, the rather large Dorset Publications campervan, took us to see the amazing planes on display at The Solent Sky Aviation Museum in Southampton. A very good neighbour of ours arrived on our doorstep one Saturday morning after reading about Nellie’s adventures at Compton Abbas. In that article I had said that Hayden, our ten year old son, keeps telling us he wants to be a pilot. Martin, our neighbour, had won tickets to the Solent Sky Museum in a local raffle and very kindly offered us the tickets to take Hayden for a day out. Well Martin, I can tell you that I have never seen Hayden quite this excited! It is possible to actually sit in the cockpit of some of the planes and you can see the sheer delight in Hayden’s glinting eyes, as he holds the controls! He was literally in his element. I wonder what he will be like after his real trip behind the controls and his first flying lesson? (Funnily enough that hasn’t been arranged yet. We don’t fancy being blown over to France in pouring rain!) I loved the morning at the museum and

Hayden strapped into the Harrier cockpit

WW1 Tiger Moth on display particularly enjoyed sitting in the Flying Boat cockpit with Hayden as well as watching the footage of the S6a which won the Schneider Trophy - Fascinating! I have to admit that I am no expert at all when it come to planes, so Chris Smith, the Supervisor from the Solent Sky Museum has provided us with some information which I thought you may find interesting. It gives you an impression of just how important the south of Britain was to the aircraft industry – and how that heritage is quickly being lost and forgotten… Here’s Chris: “The Solent region (which we define as roughly a diamond shape with corners at Bournemouth, Eastleigh, Portsmouth and Isle of Wight) was the centre of the world for aircraft development between about 1910 and 1960. “There were 26 aeroplane companies locally, and they built everything from Spitfires to jet fighters, space rockets, hovercraft and helicopters. Solent Sky Museum has roughly 20 airframes representing these companies, including our recently completed Schneider Trophy exhibition, including the Supermarine

Sat in the cockpit of “Beachcomber” S6a which broke the world closed-circuit air speed record in 1929, at 325 mph. The Spitfire was designed and built just down the road from the museum. 22,000 were built during WWII, 8,000 of those in Southampton – even after the factory was bombed, production moved to carpenters’ workshops and bicycle shops. In the museum we have a Mk24 Spitfire – one of the very last to be built, and the fastest and most powerful of them all. “The Sandringham flying boat represents the Empire Airways flying boats which flew from Southampton to the British Empire. Southampton was the world’s largest flying boat port, and the very word “airport” comes from here. Built as a Sunderland bomber in 1943, our flying boat, ‘Beachcomber’, was modified to carry Chariot submarines and was later

Nellie outside the Solent Sky Museum

converted to a passenger aircraft. She flew the world’s last scheduled flying boat service in 1974, making her the last of the great flying boats. “We have two jet fighter cockpits – a Harrier jump jet and Supermarine Swift. Visitors are encouraged to strap themselves in, and then flick all the switches and pull all the levers while making jet-fighter soundeffects, thus fulfilling our EU requirement to have ‘interactive’ exhibits. Our jet fighter collection includes the world’s only jet-fighter-flying-boat, the Saunders-Roe SRA/1.”

The museum is jam packed with exhibits If you want more information about the Solent Sky Museum please do visit their website, which can be found at www.solentskymuseum.org. I believe they are in need of some sponsorship too, so if you have a passion for planes and want to help, please let them know! Of course we had our customary cuppa in Nellie by the sea at Town Quay watching the very active port in action. We were lucky this time with the weather, having blue skies and a warm day.

PLOT

Gardening

Now is the time to go undercover

It’s still pretty chilly during February but planting seedlings under glass (or plastic) can give you a great start for the season ahead. A bit of time and money invested now in a polytunnel or greenhouse will give you benefits for years to come. Can’t wait for Spring to come? There’s plenty of vegetables that can be started off indoors now. Jobs for February:Erect a cold frame, polytunnel or greenhouse. Plant out onion sets Sow tomatoes indoors Chit seed potatoes Sow early beetroot and summer cabbages Plant soft fruit bushes

The days are getting a little longer, green shoots are starting to appear and we’re all just itching to get out in the garden now. Just one problem it’s still likely to be blooming cold!

With both greenhouses and polytunnels you need to remember that they can become very hot in the summer and ensure that adequate ventilation is available.

Extremes in weather are typical for this month so even if we do have a warmer spell I wouldn’t be in too much of a hurry to start sowing seeds outdoors. It’s at this time of year that having some undercover growing space is a real boon - not least because it’s so much more of a pleasure working in a protected environment, basking in the glory of those few rays of sun, than it is feeling a gale force wind that seems as it if’s come straight from the arctic! If you don’t have a greenhouse, polytunnel or cold frame then why not think about investing in one now? Get it built in February and you can get a head start on many plants for the season to come.

So, now that you have this great new space what can you plant in it? Early tomatoes can be started off in pots and if you plant some summer cabbages now you can get them established and benefit from a crop by late spring or early summer. Cucumbers, beetroot, leeks and lettuces can also be sown indoors and if you want to try something a little more exotic why not plant some peppers, aubergines and even a melon?

Which is best? Consider the space available - if space is limited then a cold frame, may be a good option. Green houses can offer lots of benefits but are generally not a great idea if your garden is also the kids play area and they can be hugely expensive. On the plus side, they are not easy to get rid of so if you’re prepared for a bit of work you may be able to pick up a second-hand one very cheaply providing you are happy to dismantle and move it yourself (try free cycle). We opted for a polytunnel, which was very reasonable in price and gave us several weekends of entertainment building it. Follow the instructions carefully, don’t rush it and you’ll need at least 2 of you when it comes to putting the plastic on.

This is also a good month to think about soft fruit . Most fruit bushes, trees and canes need time to get established before you start to get a good yield and it is easy to overlook them in favour of crops that give a quicker return. If you don’t have any fruit growing on your plot how about adding just one type of fruit each year? You could plant raspberry canes this month, or incorporate a gooseberry or blackcurrant bush into your border. If you have pot grown strawberries that have spent the winter indoors then place them outside as they will only flower after exposure to cold weather. Plants that have over wintered outside can be brought in now.

How the Montessori Approach Differs From Other Early Years Provisions

A Montessori early years environment aims to meet the developmental needs of all the children using it, at all times, to ensure that they feel happy and fulfilled. It caters for all aspects of their growth and their individual interests. It is designed to offer the children free choice by giving them opportunities to concentrate without interruption as well as feeling part of the social group.

A

child's Teachers are Montessori qualified and mind is like experienced. Classes are run in such a way a that they promote the children’s freedom parachute … to make spontaneous choices; to be it m ust be fully independent; to complete cycles of work; o p e n to work. to develop a sense of responsibility within the group to use the materials properly and to work on their own or with others as they like. This enables children to become independent, able to do for themselves with freedom to choose their own activity, developing their decision making skills. Children have time to finish what they have started, and at their own pace with the ability to concentrate growing their selfesteem, enabling them to have more consideration for others.

Bill Wyman’s Rhythm Kings on tour at Lighthouse, Poole I took a trip down memory lane recently to visit the Lighthouse Theatre in Poole, on stage the legendary Bill Wyman and his band of celebrated musicians that are the Rhythm Kings. With 6 vocalists in the line up, the band covers a wide spectrum of musical styles, from traditional R&B numbers through to soul, jazz, country and rock. With special guest star Maria Muldaur, the American blues singer famous for her world -wide hit, “Midnight at the Oasis” bringing her talents to the stage, it promised to be a night to remember.

When Bill Wyman formed the Rhythm Kings in 1997 the idea behind the band was for it to be a fluid group, allowing for different musicians to come and play together on stage, in the studio and on tour. To date they have recorded over 10 albums covering a wide range of musical styles, catering for a variety of musical tastes and have toured throughout the UK and many parts of Europe. And the show continues to roll on…

The show hit the ground running with an expressive Beverley Skeete singing “Good Rockin’ Daddy”, a passionate performance of the standard rock’n roll number featuring the swinging saxophone of Frank Mead. To satisfy the numerous Rolling Stones fans, keyboard virtuoso Geraint Watkins gave the audience a sublime moment of musical entertainment and joy with a fine version Mick Jagger’s all time number one hit “Time is on My Side”. Next up, guitar player Terry Taylor dipped into his repertoire of exciting blues numbers with a beautiful rendition of “Talk to me Baby” featuring his own unique style of solo improvisations on the slide guitar, reminiscent of the great American blues guitarist, Elmore James. With numbers such as Jitterbug Boogie and Jump, Jive ‘n’ Wail performed by the band in front of the slowhanded, Sanatogen-loaded Bill Wyman, those old baby boomers in the audience were in for a real treat.

If you want a fantastic night out, with real live entertainment, then take a look at what’s on at the Lighthouse in Poole. There’s something for everyone in their entertainment programme. For a complete night out, there’s also a bar, café and restaurant to suit all tastes. For more details and bookings, contact www.lighthousepoole.co.uk or telephone 0870 066 8701. By Gerry Clarke

The show continued with a number of songs by Maria Muldaur, including her Grammy nominated “Midnight at the Oasis” and a fine lesson in steel guitar playing by one of the world’s best country guitar players, Albert Lee. “You don’t stop playing when you get old, you just get old when you stop playing” he was quoted as saying. Not bad for a 70 year old, still on the road!

I certainly look forward to their next album and Bill’s return with the Rhythm Kings on stage again next year.

BIOGRAPHIES Motoring

PORSCHE 911 Carrera 4

By Tim Barnes-Clay, Motoring Writer

www.carwriteups.co.uk

@carwriteups

THIS GERMAN sports car maker seems to stir up my childhood memories. I had handfuls of Corgi and Dinky cars and the Porsche models were always the ones I cherished the most. I even had a 911 police car as part of my ‘Race and Chase’ game – an iffy imitation of the far superior Scalextric slot-car set. So, even though I can’t afford one now I’m all grown up with kids of my own – I never pass up the opportunity to borrow a Porsche. The 911 in particular seems to leave an impression on everyone. Why is this? Well, I reckon it’s the classic coupe shape – and the pure ‘racing car’ yowl the rear-engined beast makes when it comes ‘alive’. It’s an iconic sports car – simple as that. The current Carrera 4 builds upon the legend further by providing all-wheel drive. The four-by-four grip is supplied via wizardry known as Porsche Traction Management (PTM). This dispenses power to the front and rear axles as road and driving conditions change – making for a thrilling, responsive, yet stable drive. Unbelievably, despite the shot of adrenaline the 911 Carrera 4 gives you every time you go out for a spin, it doesn’t wolf down fuel. On a 100 mile trip from the Midlands to Norfolk I averaged 30mpg. That isn’t bad when you consider a 3.4 litre slab is shoehorned into the car. Behind the wheel, that powerhouse enables the supernatural to happen every time you depress the accelerator. Fuel is injected fractions of a second prior to combustion, the engine responding spontaneously

to even the slightest movement of your right foot. This isn’t only the case when picking up the pace, but also when lifting off. The seven speed manual transmission adds to the entertainment mix. Its slick action soon makes it seem entirely natural to shift all the way up to that seventh cog on the straights. As for looks – well I’ve touched a little on those already – the outline of the 911 is the ‘meat in the sandwich’. Aside from brute force, it’s why you buy the car. So, subtlety is what the present Carrera 4 is all about. You’ll see modifications to the nose and tail and the more overt use of lighting technology: bixenon headlights and gorgeous, sparkly, LED daytime driving lights are fitted as standard. The 911 Carrera 4 is also wider across the rear wheel arches than its two -wheel drive sibling. And further definition is added courtesy of a reflective trim that spans the width between the striking rear lights. The present-day Porsche 911 Carrera 4 is priced from £77,924, but you could end up spending thousands more on all the option packages available. Rest assured though – your pricey pride and joy won’t go missing very easily. Fitted to every 911 is a Porsche Vehicle Tracking System (VTS) - a highly developed vehicle security package approved to Thatcham Category 5 standard. Can’t be bad, eh?

Talking about Wildlife... The Common Dormouse Despite its elusiveness, the common or hazel dormouse, with its fairy tale looks, is one of the most popular British mammals. It is famous for its penchant for a good sleep, and, being arboreal, spends most of its active time up in the tree canopy searching for food. Dormice are also nocturnal and hence even more difficult to spot. The tiny dormouseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s round body is covered with golden coloured fur, and large black eyes are an indication of its nocturnal existence. The adults only grow up to 6 to 9 cm in length, with a slightly shorter bushy tail, and weigh from about 25 to 40 grams at their heaviest, right before hibernation. The hibernation period generally lasts from October to April or May, in a hibernation nest built on the ground. This is a vulnerable time for the dormouse, and not all survive it. The dormouse diet mainly consists of nuts, berries, ďŹ&#x201A;owers and pollen, as well as small insects. Hazelnuts are of particular importance when they prepare for hibernation by building up body fat.

Dormouse is most often found in deciduous woodland with plenty of undergrowth, hazel coppice and thick hedgerows, and its current stronghold is in the southern counties of England and Wales. Once widespread in Britain, the dormouse population has decreased dramatically in the last 100 years, despite the fact that they have few natural predators. Dormice are extremely vulnerable to changes in habitat and the decline in numbers is mainly due to changes in woodland management and the resulting habitat loss. Today, dormice are a rare and endangered species. They are strictly protected by law and it is illegal to even handle one without a license. By Niina Silvennoinen Common Dormouse

Wildlife enthusiast reveals secrets of creating stunning photography Award-winning photographer Tony Moss revealed an impressive knowledge of local wildlife at Moors Valley Country Park, near Ringwood on 24th January. Speaking at a special preview of the British Wildlife Photography Awards exhibition,Tony, whose photograph of a Bearded Reedling was Highly Commended in the competition, took a packed audience on a journey to some of his favourite locations as he explained how he works with the natural rhythms of each animal to capture his stunning imagery. His Highly Commended shot was taken at Weymouth’s Radipole Lake. “I like to set myself a project,” said Tony. “I heard the birds during a summer visit to the Park and their stunning call really stuck in my mind. It has a ringing, zinging quality that once heard is never forgotten. However with 80 hectares of reed bed I knew it wouldn’t be easy to get the photograph I really wanted. I also knew it would have to be a winter shot as the birds feed on ground insects in the summer and are rarely seen. It took me several visits to the Park, in some pretty cold weather to secure this shot so I was really delighted it was Highly Commended in the competition.”

Tony’s advice to would be wildlife photographers included pointing out that there was an awful lot of luck in photography, “But the more time you put in the luckier you get!” Around 90 stunning images of British wildlife form the British Wildlife Photographer Awards exhibition and can be seen at Moors Valley Country Park until 8th March. The exhibition opens daily and admission is free, but parking charges will apply. For more information go online to www.moors-valley.co.uk or call 01425 470721.

Photographer of the Month! Our Photographer of the Month for February is Chris Becker. This is what Chris has to say: “Since our move from mid Wales to the Dorset coast last May I`ve been like a kid in a toy shop! So many new photo opportunities! Dorset has a stunning coastline, heaths, old towns, piers and modern harbours and all offer something for ever y one. Even though I`ve been taking photographs for over 30 years I still enjoy it immensely. It’s all about trying to capture the magic of the moment! Whether that is

trying to show a lovely sunset, a colourful butterfly or the joy in someone’s face, photography can do that. It can be a challenge but with more camera equipment now available than ever, there is something for everyone and at every budget. I use mostly digital gear but film is far from dead! Whatever you use, enjoy it!” Chris Becker
