First Steps: First Choice for the Holidays In the current financial climate many parents are forced to work during their children's school summer holidays. As the typical holiday entitlement offered by employers is only 21 days per year, working parents are often forc ed to rel y on the additional support offered by members of their immediate family such as Grand Parents or Aunties and Uncles. For younger children who may be cared for in a nursery during term time only First Steps Day Nursery in Oakdale offer a Pre School holiday club throughout the summer holiday period. Their bright and vibrant Pre School room is used to offer children a range of activities and this in conjunction with the three nursery outdoor play areas. This gives each child the opportunity to enjoy new activities, make new friends and to socialise outside of their normal surroundings. Fully Ofsted approved and highly qualified nursery staff are on hand to care for each child leaving the busy parent free to work as necessary. Sessions can be booked for a minimum of half a day although full daycare is available from 8am until 6pm each day with healthy food cooked available for

full day care. With prices starting at only ÂŁ3.75 per hour this is a very cost effective way to maintain a high standard of childcare while still being committed to their daily working commitments. Contact the nursery on 01202 675009 for more information.

Classical music to enhance your special day After Studying the Classical and Jazz Guitar for about 15 years, I was lucky enough to make it my career. I started playing aged 9, and was very lucky to have excellent teachers, who encouraged me to explore all genres of Guitar playing. This has allowed me to work in many different playing situations and styles. I have travelled extensively throughout the UK and Europe, touring with bands, ensembles, shows and solo performances. Eventually, wanting to return to a more 'normal life', I decided to settle near to my home town. I now live in sunny Poole on the South coast. I continue to enjoy playing in various musical idioms including Jazz ensembles, musicals, recording sessions, Pop bands and teaching.

My training of Jazz and Classical playing, along with a love for the Classical Guitar itself, has resulted in my wedding/ function music project which has proved very popular. I have played nearly a thousand performances, and have sold over 3000 copies of my first CD 'Misty'. My music has also been used in TV productions and numerous radio broadcasts. Some comments from past clients include: “The music was greatly appreciated by all those present who thoroughly enjoyed your varied selection of tunes.” “A very belated 'thankyou' for the superb music at our wedding in October. We were sorry that we hadn't booked you for longer! There were many favourable comments from guests. I enclose a cheque for another CD please!” Daren Mayo — www.darenmayo.co.uk

Classical Guitarist Daren Mayo The Classical Guitar gives the perfect ambience for your special day. The sound is warm and relaxing, perfect as background music. I cover all of Dorset & The New Forest.

Please email for a free CD and further information. I also offer tuition in electric guitar

Fonz tells Bournemouth students “school is cool!” HENRY “The Fonz” Winkler inspired students at the Oakmead College of Technology when he paid a visit. The actor, who is dyslexic, was at the north Bournemouth secondary as part of his high profile UK tour raising awareness of the needs of children with learning challenges. A hectic schedule including a meeting at Number 10 and TV and radio appearances was set aside to allow time for the 65year-old actor to talk to local children about his own experiences in school. Th e au dien ce of 300 p upils from Oakmead and Elmrise Primary sat spellbound as he explained how he went on to succeed as an actor in TV and films and now a best-selling author of children’s books – the central character is a 10-year-old boy with dyslexia. He was recently awarded the OBE for his work with ch ild ren with learn in g difficulties. It’s all a long way since he swaggered around Arnold’s Drive-In with his friend Richie Cunningham in the hit 1970s and ’80s American sitcom Happy Days. “Every single one of you has greatness in you and your job is to figure out what is is, and then give it to the world,” he told

the pupils. “School was unbelievably hard for me – teachers didn’t know what dyslexia was at that time. “I was labelled a troublemaker, I was the class clown. I got a bad grade in everything but lunch – I was great at lunch.” He then signed copies of his books, called Hank Zipzer, the World’s Greatest UnderAchiever. Executive head at Oakmead, Dr Annetta Minard, said: “He met pupils from all the year groups and insisted on making sure he spoke to everyone. He was a great inspiration.” Henry’s tour was organised by First News, the national newspaper for children.

Chris Packham’s wildlife photography arrives at Moors Valley Country Park A collection of stunning wildlife photographs by lifelong naturalist, broadcaster and author Chris Packham is on display at Moors Valley Country Park and Forest, near Ringwood from 16 July – 28 August. Familiar to 4 million viewers across the UK as the new presenter of BBC’s Springwatch, Chris is known internationally as one of the world’s most inventive wildlife photographers. His stated mission is to infuse the world of wildlife photography with a little more artistic content and his images portray the overwhelming and simple beauty of the natural world. “We are really looking forward to hosting Chris’s wildlife photography exhibition,” said Katie Davies, Countryside Interpretation Ranger. “Anyone who has seen Chris on Springwatch will be aware of his affinity with the natural world. “At Moors Valley we want to encourage more people to get out and about and enjoy our local countryside and we know our visitors are going to be really inspired by his work.” Unlike many of the major photography exhibitions that take place at Moors Valley, Chris Packham’s images are for sale and may be bought and taken home that same day. The exhibition is open every day from 9am – 5pm. There is no entrance fee but parking charges do apply.

PD July 2011 page 12

Local wildlife enthusiasts will also be fascinated by information now available on Moors Valley’s new website. As well as details of all the facilities available at the Park and a comprehensive events list, you’ll also find a month-by-month guide to the wildlife you are most likely to spot in the 750 acre Park. Why not check it out before you visit? For more information go to the website www.moors-valley.co.uk or call the Rangers on 01425 470721.

TEENAGERS GIVEN AWARDS FOR BUILDING SCHOOL IN AFRICA A group of teenagers from Bournemouth have each received a Teenage Award Scheme certificate from Dorset Police for helping to build a school in Africa last year. The youngsters – aged between 12 and 18 years old – made up an expedition of 22 Scouts and Explorer Scouts who went to Uganda for over five weeks during the school summer holidays in 2010 to build a school in the south of the country. The group, who are from the 38th Bournemouth Scout Group based at Winton and Avon Explorers based at Iford, worked with their Scout leaders for three years to raise the £120,000 required to complete the project. Inspector Mike Claxt on, Neighbourhood Inspector for Bournemouth North, presented the teenagers with their certificates at the Scout Group AGM at Butchers Coppice in Bear Cross on Thursday 23 June. Inspector Claxton said: “These teenagers should be incredibly proud of what they have achieved and they are a great example to others. “Going out to Uganda and helping to build this facility is an extremely impressive achievement. But to have also worked so hard to raise so much money to fund the project makes this a truly exceptional accomplishment. “We so often hear about the bad things that a minority of teenagers get up to, but the hard work and achievements of these young people clearly shows that teenagers in Dorset contribute so positively to our communities.” The teenagers left the UK at the start of the school summer holidays and spent over five weeks in Uganda building the school – and as members of the Scouting Association, they camped for almost the entire time that they were there. The expedition – named ‘Nile 2010’ as the location where the build took place is near to the source of the River Nile – resulted in a school being built near J inja, U ganda t o help disadvantaged children in the area.

PD July 2011 page 14

The teenagers worked and camped alongside Ugandan Scouts, and the school that they helped to build has proved extremely valuable to the young people of Jinja. Mike Harley, expedition leader, said: “The whole leader team is very proud of what our young people achieved. We are also grateful to the many people who supported our expedition and project. “We are looking forward to providing further support to the school in the future.” The Teenage Award Scheme was set up in January 2010 by Dorset Police to recognise the achievements of teenagers living in Dorset. Anyone between 13 and 19 years of age can be nominated for an award. T o nom inat e a t e ena ger , s im ply em ai l teenageawardscheme@dorset.pnn.police.uk with the teenager’s name, contact details, age, address and details of the good deed that they are being nominated for – along with the nominator’s contact details.

Kilimanjaro Challenge for Jigsaw Appeal The Jigsaw Appeal is a £1.5 million appeal to transform the Women’s Health Unit at the Royal Bournemouth and Christchurch Hospital, a unit which desperately needs your support to bring about a better experience for patients and their families. Because I’ve had family and friends fall victim to similar conditions (and because I love a challenge), I’ve decided to climb Mt Kilimanjaro (5895 meters) this September (6th – 21st 2011). The trek will last 8 days, taking the Lemosho Route and directed by World Expeditions (who also took Chris Moyles and Cheryl Cole to the top!) The terrain involves forest, heath, rocky outcrops and glaciers at the very top. Added to this is the challenge of adjusting to the altitude. I aim to raise £4000 pounds for the Jigsaw Appeal, and am asking anyone who feels

PD July 2011 page 18

generous enough to sponsor me perhaps £5, £10 or more towards this fantastic and life-saving appeal. Please visit my webpage at: uk.virginmoneygiving.com/catbattsonkili Also, I am looking for seven business sponsorships, which I will (in return for a charitable donation of £100 or more) advertise the business along with my fundraising events and will wear a t-shirt featuring their logo on it for a day of the climb, and take photos throughout the day. For more details on the business sponsorship email p6005@canford.com or call 07854 900485.

Talking about wildlife with

Summer Heathland Nights Heathlands provide a unique habitat for a wide range of wildlife, and Dorset heaths are amongst the best in Britain. Summer nights are a perfect time to visit and explore, as the heaths are at their most colourful at this time of the year, and many species remain active until late evening when the weather is warm. Many heathland plants are in their full bloom and glory from July to September. Heather, gorse and bog asphodel create a stunning sea of purple and yellow, with the cotton grass adding its fluffy white flowers to the colourful mix. Sundew, Britain’s most common carnivorous plant, flourishes in the damp, boggy areas, as do many different species of dragonflies. For insect enthusiasts, there is also an array of other invertebrates, including heath grasshoppers, emperor moths and wolf spiders. Birds are plentiful in the summer and on a fine evening you can admire the dashing flight of the hobby, catching dragonflies for dinner. At twilight, the enigmatic nightjars become active. These summer visitors from Africa are a rare and elusive species, and although you may not be able to catch a glimpse, they can often be recognised by the male’s strange ‘churring’ song that echoes through the ni gh t. O th er avia n denizens of heathland

include the Dartford Warbler, stonechats and woodlarks. No doubt you will have heard about the huge fire that burnt around a third of Dorset Wildlife Trust’s Upton Heath in June. We have been overwhelmed by the response of local people, who turned out in large numbers in the days after the fire to help to rescue surviving reptiles. Now the work begins to make sure that the untouched areas of heath are in the best condition for wildlife, assess the depth of the fire damage and to manage the regrowth and recovery of the ecosystem for the full range of rare plants and animals. While we will see green shoots very quickly, this will be just the start of a long road to full recovery.

July’s Gardening T ips From Paul Chatfield of Chatfield’s Garden & Property Services

WATCH OUT FOR THE BUGS! Trees and Shrubs Some shrubs which flower mainly from one-year-old wood such as Philadelphius and Deutzia may continue to bloom into July. They should be pruned after flowering.

Climbers and Wall-Plants Clematis shoots are now in vigorous growth, if training regularly secure them to their supports. Hybrids that bloom in spring and summer, if cut back will bloom again.

Roses The chief task at present is to remove faded blooms, cut back to good strong bud and remove all suckers from root stock. Continue to feed with rose fertilizer.

Borders and Beds

Lawns Continue with regular mowing, water if necessary. Treat any remaining weeds with a suitable lawn weedkiller. Give a dressing of lawn fertilizer, if not already done.

Fruit Apples and pears in restricted forms such as cordons need summer pruning. Strawberry plants that have finished fruiting should be cleaned and tidied.

Vegetables Outdoor tomatoes grown on single stem must be tied to a stake as single growth progresses. In warm humid weather watch out for an attack of blight in potatoes.

Greenhouse and Frame On summer days the temperature can rise very rapidly and to keep cool, water floors and benches twice daily.

Make a regular practice of removing dead flowers to prevent seed, this helps to channel energy into more blooms. Lavender flowers should be cut before they expand, if drying.

House Plants

Bulbs and Corms

Chatfield’s Garden & Property Services North 2, Sway Storage & Workshops Barrows Lane, Sway, Lymington Hants, SO41 6DD Tel: 01590 682828 Mobile: 07821 610923

Any remaining tulips, hyacinths, daffodils and bulbous irises may now also be lifted, for summer plants if space is needed.

Rock Gardens and pools Trailers can be cut back to control growth, after flowering. Keep pools filled by replacing water lost by evaporation.This helps debris come to the surface for removal.

PD July 2011 page 22

Continue to water and feed plants as necessary. Keep atmosphere moist around plants with bowls or pans of water near the plants.

Remember that fabulous wedding dress Becky Granger wore on TV's Coronation Street? How about the coat worn in the Hollywood cult movie: Bill and Teds Bogus Journey? Now you have the chance to see these and even more amazing artefacts at the famous 'Celebrity Exhibition'. A remarkable one-off exhibition brings together some of the most iconic showbiz props ever to grace the town. Normally kept locked away from public view, the immediately recognisable items will be on show for all to see. Star attraction in the exhibition has to be Marilyn Monroe's Little Black Dress. Who knows what glittering Hollywood events she would have worn this to? There is also the spectacular God of Mischief costume from the hilarious movie Son of the Mask, and the earrings once owned by Elizabeth Taylor. While for Sci-Fi fans there are the electro-magnetic boots from the hugely successful film Face Off starring John Travolta and Nicholas Cage. Fans of the golden days of Hollywood can see Fred Astaire's shoes and Doris Day's exquisite rhinestone bracelet. For more information, see: www.bic.co.uk

How to get there: Grid Reference 936917; Coming from Wareham, just before Corfe Castle, turn right for Kimmeridge and Chur ch Knowle. Proceed into Church Knowle and park in the New Inn Cart car park on the left (car park is just after the pub). Information:Toilets are available at the pub. Walk details:As you leave the car park, turn right and proceed using the right-hand pavement through the picturesque village for about ¼ mile. Do not turn right at the large finger sign for Swyre Head but continue to just past the ‘S’ bend. Just after the bend, and just after St Peter’s church, take the track to the left, signposted Public Bridleway. After 100 metres, you will meet 4 gates. Take the 2nd gate from the left which takes you directly behind the wooden building on your right. Follow the path for 150 metres up to the base of the Ridgeway.
