Dear Hamworthy, Did you have a good Easter break? With two bank holiday Mondays this month as well, we really are being spoiled. We had a very busy April going over to The Isle of Wight for a family celebration of my Mum and Dad’s 50th Wedding Anniversary. The weather was wonderful and with 180 degree sea views from the house on the cliff top, it was really rather special. I have to say I do like the Isle of Wight. We were there for a holiday last summer and we couldn’t wait to go back. Straight after returning, and an overnight unpack and repack, we went off to The New Forest for a long weekend camping in Nellie! We joined the Caravan Club as Stephen’s parents are already members and we met them at the Centenary Site which is a lovely park with good facilities. Stephen’s sister has a new, retro, bright yellow VW Campervan - Jesse Phyllis named after Rachel’s two grandmothers. She shines! We were not quite so lucky with the weather but sitting in the van playing games and then watching a movie on the computer, all cuddled up together, made the weekend very special and a great end to a fantastic ten days. All in all it has taken some effort getting back to work, but we are glad to say that The Hamworthy Directory is full of local information for you as well as trades people who would love to hear from you. Please mention the magazine when making any calls. This makes all our work worth while and keeps the trade local. The lovely photo on the front of the magazine was taken by Joe Walker. Well done to you. The lucky winner of the wordsearch was Mr P Prowles. Well done to you too! We hope you all have a great month of May and we look forward to receiving your wordsearches as well as any ideas you have to add interest to your local Directory. This is delivered to you every three months as part of The Poole Directory Series. Very best wishes,

Debbie & Stephen Corney

Recruitment campaign underway to... support front line services A key aspect of ensuring we provide high quality care for all of our patients is our staff – having the right staff in the right place delivering the right care at the right time Last year at the Royal Bournemouth and Christchurch hospitals we invested over £1m in nursing but recruitment doesn’t stop there. We are currently recruiting a range of additional consultant, nursing staff and other clinical roles to support our front line services.

New consultant positions

We currently employ 161 consultants and on completion of the recruitment programme towards the end of the autumn, an additional 22 consultants will be providing care for our patients. The additional posts will support increased seven day working and consultantled care across all specialities, including the Emergency Department. Mr Basil Fozard, the hospitals’ Medical Director said: “Our consultants and their teams play a central role in the diagnosis and treatment of our patients every single day. This avoids delay in patient care and ensures the smooth flow of patients throughout the hospital. “We know that having the right medical experts on hand, whatever day of the week, will ultimately help improve care further.”

Qualified nurse recruitment campaign

We continue to recruit additional experienced nurses through a number of routes and due to the national shortage of experienced band 5 nurses, this includes overseas recruitment. By the end of June we aim to have recruited a total of 97 qualified nurses from the UK and Europe: Paula Shobbrook, Director of Nursing and Midwifery, said: “An important part in providing excellent care is ensuring we have the right staff delivering the right care at the right time for every patient.

She added: “We know from the national staff survey that our staff believe our organisation is a good place to work. We are really proud to serve the local community and want every patient to leave hospital feeling they have received excellent care from warm, friendly, expert staff who treated them with respect and dignity.

“An important part in providing excellent care is ensuring we have the right staff delivering the right care at the right time for every patient.” Our new European nurses are fully qualified in their own country and we have a tailored induction programme which includes assessment of skills and practice under supervision, as well as further workshops in the classroom to embed learning. There are a number of other staffing investments that are being made including: r support and recruitment for additional clinical services such as assistant health practitioners, therapists and additional security porters r new and adaptive roles, such as nurse practitioners to support the wider team r additional supervisory time for ward sisters to support ward staff r smarter use of technology, such as iPads for vital sign monitoring, and e-forms to reduce duplicate paperwork r extended and seven day working for services such as radiology and speech and language therapy.

London Marathon runners set to raise over £8,000 for Poole Hospital Charity A team of runners aimed to raise in excess of £8,000 for Poole Hospital Charity in last month’s Virgin London Marathon.

Dan Beck, Georgie Codd, Anna Dominguez, Sam Fry, Kitt Harris, Dave Hatch, Gary Moore, Sarah Pitcher, Helen Prestage and Ian Rayney trained hard, and lined up along with 35,000 other participants in the prestigious race, which last year raised a total of £53 million for charitable causes.

Here you can see some of pictures of the race day. Others who ran include: Gary Moore ran for the Child Development Centre, he also ran the 2011 London Marathon for NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit) his son Austin, now 4 years old was a NICU baby.

Jane Stichbury ‘pricked’ as The High Sheriff for Dorset 2014/15 Mrs Jane Stichbury of Ashley Heath made her declaration of office as The High Sheriff for Dorset for 2014/15 at a special ceremony at Bryanston School in Blandford on Thursday April 4. The historical service, known as The High Sheriff’s Declaration announces the nominated High Sheriff of Dorset for the ‘shreival year’ of 2014/15. The High Sheriff supports the judiciary and the Crown and actively lends support and encouragement to crime prevention agencies, the emergency services and to the voluntary sector. During the ceremony, the former High Sheriff, Mrs Catriona Payne, presented the Key of the Poole Town Goal to Mrs Jane Stichbury. A sword was also presented to Mrs Stichbury by former High Sheriff Mr Jeremy Pope.

The Office of High Sheriff is an independent, nonpolitical royal appointment for a single year. The origins of the office date back to Saxon times, when the ‘Shire Reeve’ was responsible to the king for the maintenance of law and order within the county, and for the collection and return of taxes owed to the Crown. Today, there are 55 High Sheriffs serving the counties of England and Wales each year. The High Sheriff is selected or ‘pricked’ from the List of Sheriffs for England and Wales and is carried out on a voluntary basis with no part of the expense falling on the public purse. Mrs Katharine Jones, partner at Humphries Kirk LLP, is the current Under Sheriff and the High Sheriff can be contacted through her office at 40 High West Street, Dorchester.

How To Be A Kidpreneur: Leaders have to be the example A good Entrepreneur knows that he or she has to be a leader. They have to lead teams of people to work toward their dream. They have to lead by example to their team that they work hard, respect others and have a positive attitude. As a Kidpreneur, you can be the leader at school and at home to set the good example for everyone. Maybe you have a group project at school and one of the team members is being lazy?

a skill you noticed they have that could contribute to the group. Do you play sports? Is there someone on the team that gets bullied or pushed around? Set the good example now and be the leader!

It’s hard to stand up for what’s right sometimes. But as a Kidpreneur, you need to be the example of respect, even when it’s not popular. Stand up for the kid being bullied and tell your friends the golden rule, “treat others the way you want to be treated.” Even at home you can show your brothers and sisters Instead of talking or parents how to be a leader by having a bad about them positive attitude. Help out without being with the rest of the asked, whether it’s chores, homework or group, you can talk maybe helping your siblings. Every day, in to them one-onevery way, try to be the good example. It’s one and point out never too early to be a leader!

Fantastic forest fly in There’s a clutch of new arrivals at Moors Valley Country Park and Forest near Ringwood, this spring with birds flocking for attention across the Park. Thirteen ducklings were sighted on Moors Lake as the first raft took to the water – the highest single hatching figure recorded at Moors Valley. Chiffchaffs (Phylloscopus collybita) are being sighted regularly snapping up insects as they fly past and, with the swallows due to arrive any day the nest cameras are already relaying images of nuthatches (Sita europaea) bringing in bark peeled from the abundant pine trees to line their nest. “It’s wonderful to hear the dawn chorus as the Park wakes up each spring morning,” said Pam, a longtime bird enthusiast and Moors Valley Information Offi cer. “We are already keeping a watchful eye on many young families and I’m particularly delighted to announce the arrival of a nest of House sparrows near the railway platform at Kingsmere Station.” Once common in most gardens the House sparrow (Passer domesticus) is now Red Listed by the RSPB following a drop in recorded numbers of 71%. It is thought that part of this severe decline has been caused by a lack of insects resulting in poorly fed chicks. “At Moors Valley there are plenty of suitable nest sites for sparrows and natural food sources, and we also provide a feeding station at the back of the Visitor Centre,” added Pam. “It’s a great place to sit quietly and see how

many species you can spot.” With over 800 acres to explore and relax in the natural attractions of Moors Valley Country Park and Forest are not restricted to the spring. Wildlife enthusiasts will find the Park is one of the best places in the country to spot summer dragonflies, autumn sees the arrival of the swanringer to ring the new cygnets, while overwintering arrivals at the lake include two Amber Listed dabbling ducks, Gadwall and Teal. Moors Valley opens daily and whilst admission is free there is a charge for parking. Regular visitors can benefit from a choice of season tickets providing parking at significantly reduced rates. For more information go online to www.moors-valley.co.uk or contact the Rangers on 01425 470721.

BIOGRAPHIES JAGUAR F-type

By Tim Barnes-Clay, Motoring Writer

www.carwriteups.co.uk

@carwriteups

The jaguar is the third-largest feline after the tiger and the lion. The flesh and blood big cat has a compact body, a broad head and powerful jaws – and this describes perfectly the attributes of the new F-TYPE from Jaguar Land Rover Ltd. Indeed, in the automotive world, the latest Jaguar is leading the pack. The two-seater convertible embodies a return to the company’s heartland, focusing on athleticism, dexterity and behind-the-wheel involvement. What's more the FTYPE is a continuance of a sporting lineage stretching back over 75 years. The engineering philosophy fortifying the F-TYPE is focused on Jaguar’s expertise when it comes to aluminium. The metal is lightweight, so its use in the car’s architecture helps provide a perfectly balanced weight distribution. That permits the Jag’s rear-wheel drive dynamics to be exploited to the max. Three types of the Jaguar model are available: the FTYPE, F-TYPE S and F-TYPE V8 S. Each is distinguished by the power output of its supercharged petrol engine, with all of them featuring stop/start technology to increase efficiency. My press car was the F-TYPE S, powered by a new 3.0litre V6 lump. Producing 375bhp and 338lb/ft of torque (pulling power), the car has more than enough horses and grunt to get you moving rapidly. The free-revving, willing nature of the engine encourages you to be, shall we say, enthusiastic – and I certainly tried to sample the full extent of the car’s abilities. The 0-62mph sprint comes in just 4.9 seconds and the top speed is 171mph. The feeling you get when you accelerate is similar to that of an aeroplane hurtling down the runway before take-off. You’re literally pressed into your seatback, and the smile it induces could only ever be outdone by a small child on Christmas morning. And just when you think the Jaguar F-TYPE couldn’t possibly release any more endorphins into your bloodstream – you come across the sports car’s active

exhaust system. With just a touch of a button you can change an already throaty sounding exhaust note into one that builds to a thrilling crescendo at the red line. Driving the F-TYPE isn’t rocket science though. It has a set of eight closely-spaced gear ratios in its Quickshift auto transmission, giving you superior control. The V6powered S model also includes a Dynamic Launch feature, which optimises acceleration from rest. Taking cues from cockpits of fighter aeroplanes, the switches are grouped by function. Further aeronautical inspiration can be found in the joystick-shaped SportShift selector controlling the gearbox. Additionally, the air vents on top of the dashboard will only deploy when you instruct them to, or by complex control algorithms, staying tucked discreetly out of sight in other circumstances. The concentration on driver passion and performance in the F-TYPE is highlighted by the ‘one plus one’ layout of the asymmetric cabin. This is confirmed by the grab handle which races down the centre console on the passenger side, delineating it from the driver’s side. The F-TYPE is, without doubt, a car that delivers precisely the key sporting characteristics that Jaguar intended. It’s definitely a big toy for big boys and girls – and it’s available from only £58,500 for the entry level, rising to £67,520 for the F-TYPE S, on to a price-tag of £79,950 for the F-TYPE V8 S.

Tastes so good... BUTTERED BRIOCHE PUDDING

If you’re looking for a little bit of food indulgence it doesn’t get much better than this pudding. Super easy to prepare, this dish works beautifully well either on its own, or with a dollop of custard or ice-cream.

Ingredients:

Equipment: Well greased, deep baking dish

1 brioche, sliced and buttered 60g sultanas 2 level tablespoons castor sugar 1 1/4 pint whole milk 4 medium sized eggs Sprinkling of nutmeg

Method: Preheat the oven to 180°c or gas mark 3-4.

Place the milk in a pan and gently heat.

Slice and butter the brioche. Put a layer on the bottom of the dish and sprinkle the sultanas over them. Arrange a second layer of brioche over the top.

Adventures of Nellie

24

The Adventures of Nellie The Dorset Publications Camper Van Wow! Nellie has been a very busy ‘girl’ this month. She took us to Moors Valley where she met not only the train but also the tractor…. story below. Then she took us to The Isle of Wight for a 50th Wedding Annivesary celebration with my parents and then… a weekend trip to the New Forest with Stephen’s parents and his sister in her gorgeous yellow VW Campervan! Nellie is currently resting in the garden… It is a lot of work you know for an ‘old girl’ who is a little overweight. Moors Valley is a favourite for many. It is a fantastic place for youngsters, parents and grandparents alike. Saturday the 5th April was a special day and Hayden, our son was invited to be a park keeper for the day. Just like Percy! There is a brand new trail for all the family which is an ideal way to get the children out to experience our wonderful countryside. As the Moors Valley website says, “Enjoy… Experience… Explore… At Moors Valley there is something for everyone… whether you want to enjoy a peaceful walk or cycle ride through the Forest, experience a ride on an authentic

Nellie meets up with Zeus... behind the train sheds

In the main signal box with Jim Haylock narrow-gauge steam train or even Go Ape on a high wire forest adventure swinging through the tree tops.” We started our day in the reception area where there was a great art exhibition of wild animals. Wonderful paintings. After a smooth start, this is where the fun started for us. Nellie had been invited to meet the steam train, so off we went down to the wonderful station, so well set out. Stephen drove Nellie across the railway line so we could take a photo of the train and her together. At the other side was a lovely, if rather wet looking field. Have you guessed…. YES, Nellie got stuck in the mud! Her high wheels spun very ineffectively and she sat there looking rather frustrated. Much to her delight, and that of Hayden who was now worried as he had a swimming competition to attend later in the day and feared he would never make it, the tractor was a great success and Nellie came out totally unscathed, if a little flushed… and muddy. It was all rather exciting really.


25 The trains at Moors Valley are a treat. We were very honoured, not only to meet Jim Haylock the owner and creator of the Moors Valley Railway, but also have a personal tour by him. Originally Jim was a carpet fitter but had always had a dream to create a ‘full railway experience’. This is exactly what you get when you hop aboard. There is a ticket collector, a conductor, bridges, overhead signs, a signal box, level crossings, in fact everything you see on a full working railway. There are even sheds where the trains are made, renovated and otherwise kept in tip top condition. Jim and his nephew Tim, who is now working very closely with his uncle, both have a total passion for trains and you can see the sheer delight and enjoyment in what they do. Tim drove his first train at a very early age and I think from the look in his eyes he was smitten immediately. What young boy wouldn’t be! Hayden, our son was so excited when he was able to blow the whistle to start the train! His chest stuck out like a proud robin as he blew. A very happy boy. We didn’t have enough time to do the Percy trail unfortunately, but will be back, as Moors Valley is a favourite of ours. Hayden is also extremely keen to try his

And your guard on this trip is... Hayden!

Hayden can’t wait to Go Ape! skills at Go Ape, so I guess now that he is tall enough, we will be doing this soon too. Wish me luck! We are so fortunate to have such a gorgeous park which is ever developing and expanding. If you want fun and adventure or a leisurely walk in the forest, even through the tree tops, then Moors Valley is a great place to visit. Please see the website www.moors-valley. co.uk. There are planned events such as orienteering, mountain biking, golf, angling, Nordic walking and much more. You can of course hire bikes and ride around to your hearts content, taking a picnic and stopping whenever you want to. Have fun! Where will Nellie go next…?

6. SET A GOOD EXAMPLE1 There are many people one influences.2 The influence3 can be good or it can be bad. If one conducts his life to keep these recommendations, one is setting a good example. Others around one cannot help but be influenced by this, no matter what they say. Anyone trying to discourage you is trying to do so because they factually mean you harm or are seeking to serve their own ends. Down deep, they will respect you. Your own survival chances will be bettered in the long run since others, influenced, will become less of a threat. There are other benefits. Don’t discount the effect you can achieve on others simply by mentioning these things and setting a good example in your own right.

The way to happiness requires that one set a good example for others. 1. example: someone or something worthy of imitation or duplication; a pattern, a model. 2. influences: has an effect upon. 3. influence: the resulting effect. © 2014 DORSET PUBLICATIONS.

Gardening Tips

a beginner’s

GUIDE Pest Control

Even the best kept garden will be teeming with critters all conspiring to sabotage your growing efforts and you could spend a lot on named chemicals to combat various problems but it may be worth having a go with more environmentally friendly remedies first. For instance, the cabbage-white butterfly, as its name suggests will home in on your cabbages and other brassicas, lay its eggs and, two weeks later, a mass of caterpillars will be eating holes in the leaves. Pick them off by hand, inspecting the plants carefully every day or two and try spraying them with salty water to deter them. To combat greenfly, try crushing a clove of garlic in warm water, leave for about 6 hours, strain into a hand spray and spray over the plants. It’s very effective. If you find aphids on your rose buds, a disgusting but effective treatment is to rub them out with your fingers. Cats can be deterred with oldfashioned moth balls although the effects don’t

last very long. After a wet night a local cat had buried all of ours! Of all the pests that will drive you up the wall, slugs and snails are at the top of the list, particularly when you have young seedlings or are growing hostas or sunflowers. For plants in pots, Vaseline or grease smeared round the pot can help, as can copper strips which cause electro-chemical shocks. Otherwise, try sharp mulches around the plants that need protection, such as sharp gravel, crushed eggshells or broken seashells. Some say hair clippings work (see your local hairdresser) and caffeine is supposed to be lethal to molluscs so try coffee grounds. Half fill a dish with beer (I don’t think they are particularly fussy about the brand!) and sink it in the ground to attract the slugs which fall in and drown. Of course, nothing really beats a size 10 boot and a thorough search of the garden with a torch in hand on a damp night might pay dividends. Happy hunting!

Money Saving Tips

LEWIS Debt Recovery

This is a golden time for those in debt. While that may seem a strange thing to say, the best EVER deals for cutting loan, store or credit card costs are now on the market. So if you've existing debts, a little bit of action could save you £100s or £1,000s. The aim is to cut the interest rate you pay, so more of your repayments clear the debt rather than servicing the interest, so you're debt-free far quicker. 1. Stop borrowing. Borrowing more just makes the problem costlier and longer-lived. You can’t borrow your way out of debt. The tips below are about getting new products, not borrowing more. 2. CREDIT & STORE CARD DEBT: Shift to 31mths 0%. If you've debts on cards, do a balance transfer. This is where you ask a new card to pay off debts on other cards, so you owe it instead, hopefully at a cheaper rate. To get a card, you must pass a credit score. Usually the only way to find out is to apply, which marks your file. To get round that, find which card’s most likely to accept you with my free Eligibility Checker at www.mse.me/ eligibility Follow the balance transfer golden rules: a) Always repay at least the set monthly minimum, or you lose special rates. b) Always plan to shift the debt again or fully repay before the 0% ends, or these cards' rates jump to 18.9% and 17.9% representative APR. c) Don't spend on these cards – it's usually not at the same cheap rate. 3. LOAN DEBT: Can you cut the cost? This is more difficult, as most old loans charge up to two months' interest to repay early, which needs factoring in. It's worth trying if you can get a much lower APR loan (ie, more than a fifth off) and have a while left to repay – especially if your credit score's improved since getting the loan.

transfer' cash into your bank account, so you then owe the card instead. You could, of course, find a 0% overdraft. Both First Direct and Nationwide offer this if you switch to them, but the amounts offered are usually limited. 5. Don't repay all debts equally – attack the highest APR first. Once your debts are as cheap as possible, list them all, including overdrafts, in order of APR. Then focus every penny on clearing the highest APR one as it grows fastest, just paying the minimum on the others. Once that's clear, move to the next highest. The more you pay off, the better. If you just stick to minimum repayments, you’ll take years or decades to be debt-free (they're designed so you just clear the interest). The exception to the ‘highest APR first’ rule is loans with penalties for overpaying early. 6. Set up a direct debit to protect your credit score. Forget or make late repayments and you risk losing 0% deals, being fined and suffering a hit on your credit score. So set up a direct debit to cover at least the monthly minimum, then manually pay more on top each month. 7. Got both debts and savings? Stop. £1,000 credit card debt at 18% costs £180 a year, while the same amount saved in top paying savings earns just £15 before tax. If you’re thinking “yes, but I like some spare cash”, this is often false security. More at www.mse.me/ClearDebtsWithSavings 8. Free debt crisis help. While my tips above should help cut the cost of debt, for some people that isn’t enough. If you're struggling to meet your minimum repayments and basic bills, have non-mortgage debts bigger than a year's salary, or can’t sleep for worry, you're likely to be in debt crisis.

If so, ignore the options above and contact a non-profit debt advice service that uses a different set of solutions, such as StepChange (stepchange.org), Citizens Advice 4. OVERDRAFTS/CATALOGUES: Shift to 0%. (citizensadvice.org.uk) or National Debtline If you've a costly overdraft or need to put money in a bank account to pay off catalogue debts, there’s a way to (nationaldebtline.co.uk). Don’t worry, they’re there to help, not judge. use a credit card for this. A few balance transfer cards let newbies 'money
