The Ferndown & West Dear Ferndown & West Parley! Well I have to say that this summer was a great Parley Directory success all round. The weather was good and from Edition 91

our point of view Hayden was kept busy on a four day camp at Sixpenny Handley with the West Moors Viking Cub Scout Group, a week on the Isle of Wight with us and then ten days at Grandma and Grandad’s in Hull! Oh to be young and carefree again… You can read about our trip to the Isle of Wight with Nellie on pages 36 and 37. So, I hope you equally had a good summer and are getting ready for the autumn again. We have many interesting articles this month. The West Parley Parish Council have good news for you as well as ‘dates for your diary’. The Royal Bournemouth Hospital has lots of information for you. Age UK Bournemouth provides some good advice. There is a really interesting article on Dudsbury Camp by John Cullen. Studio One arrives in West Parley. An iPad was won at the Eyestyle Centre, and volunteer drivers are needed in Ferndown! This is all inside, so do use the Directory to support your local groups. Of course we have our very important advertisers. There is quite a selection and many of them we have been promoting in the local area for some time. Please continue to help us, help them, by giving the local businesses and trades people a call for their services. The lucky winner of the meal for two at the Kings Arms last month was Lyne Pelling. Well done to you! Wishing you all a good month of September,

Debbie & Stephen Corney P.S. Do wave to us in Nellie, if you see us!

High quality hospital care for all Patient safety, patient care outcomes and the patient experience are the focus for our activities; ensuring we are putting our patients first in all that we do. Our Board of Directors hear first-hand about patient experiences and ensure a link between the wards and the decisions made. For example, each month our directors hear from a patient, or member of staff, about a recent hospital experience. To tell us about your hospital experience contact the Patient Advice and Liaison Services (PALS) on 01202 704886 or email pals@rbch.nhs.uk. The PALS office is in the main atrium of the Royal Bournemouth Hospital and is open from 9am-4pm, Monday to Friday. Providing quality care means continually investing in our staff, equipment, environment and the patient experience. Here are examples of where we have been working hard during the last 12 months and planned improvements.

Investing in our front line Investing in staff is crucial to ensure we continue to provide high quality care. • More than £1m has been invested in nursing staff. • Some 59 newly qualified nurses have been appointed and will join the Trust in early autumn. • Four additional doctors are to be recruited. • Two further consultant acute physicians are to be appointed to provide greater consultant cover. • An intensive care consultant will join the outreach team. • Plans to recruit a sixth consultant for the Emergency Department. Investment in senior medical staff is a priority within the hospital at night and at weekends.

Innovation We are one of the first hospitals in the south to purchase a surgical robot for use in the treatment of prostate, head and neck cancers. Robotic surgery is less invasive than normal surgical procedures for complex cancer urology and is performed through small ‘keyholes’, resulting in shorter recovery times, reduced hospital stay and the potential for enhanced quality of life outcomes for patients.

Enhancing the healing environment for patients with dementia Funding has been approved for a range of ward improvements, including: • New reception with patient seating area • Colour coding for bathroom facilities and pictorial signage • Use of orientation boards • New nurse stations on bays Investment in the dementia ward environment is designed to reduce patient stress and anxiety, promote independence in day to day activities and reduce falls.

High quality patient information Providing high quality patient information is an essential part of the patient experience and consent process; ensuring patients are fully informed about medical procedures. Awarded the Information Standard quality mark for the patient health and care information produced, patients coming to our hospitals can be assured the information they receive is of the highest quality. Our award-winning patient films also support the patient experience. A range of films have been produced to help patients and their families understand what will happen when they come in to hospital for a particular procedure. Films have been produced for orthopaedics, prostate cancer, cardiology to name a few, and they can be found under the ‘Patient and Visitor’ area of www.rbch.nhs.uk To keep up to date with developments at the Royal Bournemouth and Christchurch hospitals why not become a member?

Age UK Bournemouth reminds older drivers of the importance of car insurance at new registration time This September, as the new ‘63’ registration plates appear on the roads, it is an ideal time for drivers to review their insurance policy and check they are being offered a policy that meets their needs. Peter Kendall, Trading Manager of Age UK Bournemouth, said: “When buying insurance for a brand new car, or even for your current one, it is essential to always shop around before committing to a provider. Securing a car insurance policy that meets your needs, and not just the cheapest deal, is important. “You may wish to avoid paying for features that you don’t need and remember to always read your policy in depth, check for any hidden charges, cancellation fees or exceptions that

could invalidate a claim. Also watch out for providers that automatically renew car insurance policies each year and charge for cancellation of them. Older drivers should also check there is no upper age limit on a policy.” Age UK Car Insurance, provided by Ageas Insurance Limited, is designed to meet the needs of those in later life. It has no upper age limit, no hidden fees for policy changes. It can be paid by monthly instalment at no extra cost 0% APR Representative. For further information about Age UK Car Insurance, provided by Ageas Insurance Limited, please call us on 01202 530575 or pop into Age UK Bournemouth, 700 Wimborne Road, Winton, Bournemouth, BH9 2EG.

Local History: Dudsbury Camp Dudsbury Camp is an ancient promontory hill fort in West Parley that was built in the Iron Age (800BC to 43AD) on a bend in the River Stour. There are 2 large circular defensive earth rings around a large open space of about 8 acres. With deep ditches around and between the rings and with timber ramparts on top, the fort had an important permanent role for the local community and would have been an imposing structure on the hill top with extensive and commanding views all around. It may have been built on top of an existing Bronze Age feature. These defences form complete protection for the hill top. The high ground falls steeply to the River Stour, some 70 feet below, and a defensive terrace on the slope and a timber rampart at the top of the slope gave further protection from the south. The double rings protected the rest of the site. Only two narrow entry points made a direct attack difficult. Research in the 1920s showed that it was some 20 feet from the ditch bottom to the top of the inner ring.

The ditches and rings at Dudsbury Building the camp would have involved hundreds of people from the Durotriges tribe, a new Nordic race, gathering together and working in a co-ordinated way in an ordered society. It would have taken a number of years to build the hill fort and there must have been a wide area of settlement all around to support the building project. The camp formed one of a series of defensive positions from the sea up the Stour River, the first being Double Dykes at Hengisbury Head, as part of an important trading route from the coast to the interior of Dorset. There are over 2000 hill forts of this era in Britain, with a particular concentration of forts and other structures in Dorset. There is not enough evidence to show if the Camp itself was


23

permanently settled or was just used when its defences were needed but it is unlikely that a well sheltered open space would not be used for some purpose after all the effort needed to build it. Evidence of Iron Age settlement has been found across fields to the east of the camp and finds from the later Romano-British period show the continuation of settlement in this area from early times. These finds have been made as a result of isolated building work and a thorough search across the existing open fields would inevitably reveal much more of interest. There is a wealth of ancient settlement across Dorset and leading archaeologists are understanding much more about how people lived in these times. Many years ago the importance of these features was not appreciated and in West Parley, as elsewhere, modern building has encroached right up to ancient features. This attitude has completely changed as interest in our local heritage grows and there is a greater willingness to treasure what we have and try to protect what may be lost to future generations. There is a proposal

for housing to be built on fields close to the hill fort and to the east of Parley Cross and this and their access roads across these fields would destroy any evidence of ancient settlement. Dudsbury Camp is classed as a scheduled monument. Though the whole area is private land there is access through the site on a public footpath. Though the height of the rings has been reduced over time by cultivation and the ditches have partly infilled there is a strong sense of place in this historic setting. Despite its proximity to the busy Christchurch to Wimborne road, the site is very quiet and it is easy to imagine the fort as it would have been when it was built with its feeling of security within the high earth banks yet with extensive views across to the south to the Stour and beyond.

The Adventures of Nellie The Dorset Publications Camper Van Nellie, who got her name from the Nissan Elgrand that she is, and who also happens to be rather large, wearing her long, black skirts to cover her ‘oversized thighs’, is the Dorset Publications travelling campervan! This summer she took us to the Isle of Wight. She had friends with her too. “Lady J”, the rather posh Jaguar belonging to my sister and her proud husband and also the “Matrix”, my Mum and Dad’s new automatic Hyundai car. The latter was especially bought for the occasion as Dad is having a few difficulties with his knee. These are the same knees which won the 100 yards East Yorkshire Sprint Championship in 1949 at the age of 14! Dad even came 3rd in the whole of the Yorkshire Championships. It seemed to be running in the family as Dad’s grandfather was the 10 Mile Yorkshire Champion. He was only 4’ 11” and told that he was too small

Lady J & Nellie, by Martin Budden

Lady J, Matrix & Nellie at Dinosaur Isle

Family breakfast on clubhouse verandah for rugby, so took to cross country running instead. Unfortunately, with my Dad, that is where the sportsmanship era ended, as both my sister and I will now tell you that walking to the nearest coffee shop is what we do best! Anyway, Nellie with my Mum, Dad, sister and my brother-in-law in Lady J and the Matrix all set off in convoy for the Isle of Wight for a week. We lost ‘Lady J’ at the first hurdle, as Nellie and the Matrix both managed to get on the early ferry, by chance, leaving Lady J standing at the port as we sailed away! We were not to be floundered and took a slow drive around the Isle until we all met up again and then made our way to where we were staying - Rookley Country Park in the centre of the Isle of Wight. Sue and I had chosen it, as much to our Mum’s ‘incredulity’, it had a fishing lake for Dad and a swimming pool for Hayden. The youngest and eldest were therefore well catered for. Mum has had a lifetime of fishing with Dad. In addition to his running skills, and having also played football for Hull


37

Grandad and Hayden show off their catches City Boys, Dad has been a keen angler from a very early age. Twice he fished for Hull in the National Championships where 1200 anglers took part. Many a weekend when we were young was spent fishing - so Sue and I thought this was perfect.The two lakes at Rookley Country Park are very well stocked and I recommend them to the new and very experienced fisherman alike. There is a carp lake where you can catch carp up to 40 pounds in weight. Dad did catch some good sized fish in the smaller pond with Hayden who had fun catching small rudd and carp – 29 fish was his best afternoon’s catch! Take a look at our photos to prove it… Great fun. We ladies had a fantastic spa day at Liz Earle’s in Ryde whilst the boys were fishing. We all came back thoroughly refreshed!

Picnic time at Carisbrooke Castle

The week was a total success, except, as my sister put it, the ‘orchestra of snoring’ in the caravan that we all stayed in! All in all I think we visited most major towns of the Island with a visit to the Needles, taking the chair lift to the sea and a boat ride to see the Needles themselves. Dinosaur Isle was fun with lots of fossils and life like dinosaurs to give you a real flavour of how it used to be on the Jurassic Coast many many years ago. The Garlic Farm was also interesting and I now have a challenge to grow one of my own… Carisbrooke Castle was fascinating and, although this was not our best day for weather, we still had great views of the Island walking around the ramparts. For those that don’t know, it is where Charles 1st hid from his enemies before he was then kept as prisoner and later executed for Treason. Nothing like a bit of history to get you thinking! So if anyone is wondering where to go, that is not too far away, yet you feel that you are, the Isle of Wight could be just what you are looking for. Nellie did great and the picnic at Carisbrooke, with the whistling kettle made it all the more fun! Where will Nellie go next? See next month’s issue of… The Ferndown & West Parley Directory!

Eye’ve won an iPad! Mrs J Smith from Ferndown, Dorset is the lucky winner of 16GB iPad tablet computer. Mrs J Smith visited Eye Style, Dorset, Ferndown earlier this year for an eye examination and whilst at the practice entered a competition to win an iPad. Mrs J Smith said; “I can’t believe I am the winner, no one ever expects to win a competition when they enter. I simply filled in a short questionnaire about Crizal Transitions spectacle lenses after my eye test and handed it to my optician, never thinking I’d hear anything more but I’ m absolutely thrilled and very surprised”.

Alan Cooke is delighted that the winner of this regional competition should come from his practice and hopes Mrs J Smith will use the iPad organizer to remind herself of her next visit. The competition was organised by Essilor Ltd, who manufactures Crizal Transitions adaptive lenses. To book an eye examination at Eye Style, please call West Moors: 01202 890904, Shaftesbury: 01747 851006 or Locks Heath: 01489 589760. For more information on Crizal Transitions lenses go online to the website at www.crizal-lenses.co.uk.

CONTACT THE ELDERLY Once a month on a Sunday afternoon elderly people from Ferndown are taken out for a ride by a volunteer driver and out to volunteer host and hostesses homes for afternoon tea. The need is for more volunteer reserve drivers who would be willing to help two or three times a year when the regulars cannot come and volunteer host families to provide a tea once or twice a year. A downstairs cloakroom is a must. Please ring Carolyn Dennis on 01202 424482.
