Dear Swanage! Wow it is December! Surprisingly I am more ready this year than ever before which is very unusual for me. We had a lovely trip up North to visit the family for a Christening and I managed to get all of their presents and leave them up there! I can now concentrate on home and more immediate family. Santa told Hayden to write his list which I have to say I am a little worried about… XBox 360 etc. That is on top of the DSi he was given by Grandma for his Birthday last week. It isn’t how it used to be is it? Maybe you have a story of a past Christmas or New Year’s event? I remember my Mum telling me that her sister really did get a sack of coal one year for being so naughty and threw my Mum’s new pram down the stairs as a result. Well it made sure I was good anyway! With regards to the magazine please use our local trades people to help you this Christmas, whether it is a new bathroom suite, a cleaner carpet, new blinds for the windows, a hair cut, your clothes dry cleaned, a meal out or many other things, The Swanage Oracle local business and trades people can help you. There are also some interesting articles to read this month and a prize wordsearch on page 25. Why not grab a cup of tea, put your feet up by the fire and have a read? Just so you know, we will have our very own new website in the New Year which I am very excited about! Steve, Hayden and myself wish you a really Happy Christmas and a Delightful New Year! All the Very Best,

Debbie

Suttle Projects Invests in New SFA Piling Rig Suttle Projects have recently invested in a ‘Klemm 708’ piling rig for drilling augered concrete piles. The piles are typically used to support buildings or retaining walls when excavating the ground. The new piece of machinery enables the company to work on in-situ concrete pile projects for local companies, as well as working on specialist contracts for Network Rail. The piles are speedily installed and can cater for a variety of ground conditions – the machinery is also suitable for restricted access. Managing Director, Joe Paine added: ‘We believe we’re the only company in the local area to offer this service. It’s the ideal piece of machinery for us as many

News from the National Trust On a bright and cold winter’s day there is nothing like getting out and about and enjoying all that the landscape of Purbeck has to offer. It therefore seems like a good time to tell you that the new winter events programme for Studland Beach is out and offers a wide range of activities if you like help a bit of help planning your outdoor adventure. From seasonal tastings and carol singing at Knoll Beach to winter solstice celebrations on Old Harry Rocks and a festive walk around Worth Matravers, there is something for everyone. Equally you can join us in celebrating the festive season at Corfe Castle, with tree dressing on the first weekend in December and a chance to watch the winter solstice from the castle later on in the month. You can find out more information on all these festive activities on our website at www.nationaltrust.org.uk or from one of our leaflets. Over Christmas our open hours will be slightly different at both Corfe Castle and Knoll Beach. For your information Corfe Castle Shop, Tea Rooms and the Castle are all open as usual until Christmas Eve when they all close at 1pm. They are closed Christmas Day and Boxing Day and then back to opening daily 10am – 4pm. If you fancy welcoming in the New Year with a wander around the Castle we’ll be open on New Year’s Day but not until 11am. The tearoom will also be closed for its annual spring clean from 4th January and will open again on the 15th. Whilst down at Knoll Beach the café and shop will be open on Christmas Eve from

Christmas Cheer Christmas is a time of wonderment To young and old alike A time to renew old friendships And, new ones ,no doubt, strike What do we think makes Christmas ? Carol singers at the door Or turkey and mince pies to eat The Christmas tree and more ? These are indeed some Festive joys But how long do they last The real joys are the ones we need To reflect on from the past And so it is that family and friends Are really what we need When gathered around the Yuletide fire With friendship as our creed So in this time of material things Maybe we should look around And agree to extend our love To those who need it, beyond

The Purbeck Association of The National Trust Lots of our members belong to other local groups as well as to us. One thing that we notice when we talk is that the recession is affecting most groups. Many people have less money to spend and are understandably pulling back from the more expensive events. We‘re doing all we can as a group to keep our costs down, while still providing an interesting and (we hope) enjoyable range of activities. The cost of the Christmas lunch this month for example is only £1 more than it was in 2006. Our talks also remain excellent value at only £2 (including refreshments), or £2.50 if you’re not a member. We’ve also tried to hold some lower cost events. Our enjoyable evening of skittles in October (see picture) only cost £8.50 including a meal, and our annual Fish & Chips Quiz is only £8, including the meal and a drink. Our annual membership remains great value at only £5, or £7.50 for a couple. If you’d like to get more out of your own National Trust membership (or your status as a Trust Volunteer) by joining us, call Membership Secretary Jay Burke on 423775 or see our website www.purbecknt.org.uk.

WAGGY TAILS RESCUE, is a registered charity based in Ferndown. They rescue and re-home dogs that have been abandoned, neglected or otherwise in need of a good home. This Month’s Christmas Cracker is KIP Kip is a very pretty 11-month-old Papillion cross. He lived previously on board a canal barge, so is unused to house and traffic noises, so still quite nervous. He is very active, full of fun and loves people, but is a little wary of other dogs. I know we ask this each year, but it is such an important message that we need to just say it one more time “PLEASE DON’T BUY A PUPPY FOR A CHRISTMAS PRESENT” All rescues get inundated with old dogs being handed in at this time of year to make way for the new puppy! Unbelievable, I know, but it really does happen! Please give buying a dog serious consideration. (Most people spend more time deciding on which TV to buy!) A dog can last for 15 or more years and one year’s food alone will cost about £500! Then there’s vaccinations, vet bills, insurance, worming and flea treatments etc that can amount to £20,000 throughout the dog’s life. So give it some serious thought, and, in the New Year, if you still want to go ahead, why not give a rescue dog a second chance of happiness? For more information phone us on 01202 875000!
