Sparkling students hang winning bauble to launch local Christmas Tree competition Two students from the Victoria Education Centre and Sports College (VEC) in Poole, hung a very special decorative bauble on a pine tree in the forest at Moors Valley Country Park, near Ringwood, on 26th November. The bauble is one of 10 being placed locally by the Forestry Commission to launch this year’s Christmas tree sales. Five of these distinctive golden baubles can be found at Moors Valley Country Park and a further five within the New Forest. All bear the distinctive Forestry Commission logo, and any member of the public lucky enough to find one will be entitled to win a Christmas Tree. The Forestry Commission donated a Christmas tree to VEC in 2009 to mark the launch of the Centre’s Sparkle Appeal. The Appeal aims to raise £5 million to provide a new hydrotherapy pool and therapy centre at the school, which specialises in providing care and therapy for pupils aged 3-19 years, affected by a range of physical disabilities. This year the students returned the favour by hanging the first lucky bauble in the forest in return for their Christmas tree which took pride of place at the Sparkle Christmas Fair on 27th November. Libby Burke, Forestry Commission Communications Manager said, “2010 is the 500th anniversary of the first decorated Christmas Tree, and

TLD December 2010 page 4

whilst the Latvian merchants chose to decorate with roses back in 1510, we thought our special Christmas baubles would stand out rather better in the forest environment. We are delighted that Sam 7, and Nick 18, from VEC could launch the competition for us and look forward to meetin g the 10 lu cky winners.” Christmas Trees are now on sale at Moors Valley Country Park daily from 10 – 4pm until December 19th. Forestry Commission trees are also on sale at New Park, near Brockenhurst. The next Sparkle event is a Carol Service, which takes place at 6pm on December 15th in St Aldhelm’s Church, Branksome.For more information on any of this year’s Christmas events at Moors Valley contact the Rangers on 01425 470721 or visit www.moors-valley.co.uk.

December’s Gardening Tips From Paul Chatfield of Chatfield’s Garden & Property Services Fruit In favourable conditions fruit trees can be Trees and Shrubs Always give your plants good thoughts!

Trees and shrubs can still be planted, however be careful with the roots when moving and try not to disturb too much soil, also none frosty conditions.

Climbers and Wall-Plants Planting can still be carried out now good supporting methods should be used. Training and cleaning up of leaves.

Roses Support roses over the winter to save from damage, leaves should be cleared up, healthy ones can be composted and diseased ones burnt.

Borders and Beds Planting and supporting can still be carried out if conditions are not frosty. Protect plants if necessary with a good mulch or straw.

Bulbs and Corms Hand weed or hoe weed seeds to keep down for the spring flowering, during mild spells.

Rock Gardens and Pools

planted, pruning can still be carried out on apple and pears only.

Vegetables Time for your seeds to be ordered before Christmas. Some vegetables in open g ro u n d w o u l d b e n e f it f ro m s om e protection.

Greenhouse and Frame Glass needs washing and disinfectant applied. Insulation should be done. This will obviously cut down costs for working greenhouses.

House Plants Be careful not to water too much, it is easy to make the compost too soggy so the roots would then lack air, ideal temps are from 50-70 degrees Fahrenheit. Chatfield’s Garden & Property Services North 2, Sway Storage & Workshops Barrows Lane, Sway, Lymington Hants, SO41 6DD

Seeds of many alpines cannot germinate successfully unless exposed to a period of freezing or snow, which in their native habitats breaks dormancy.

Lawns If ground is not wet or sticky spiking to improve aeration can be carried out, during mild weather, a sprinkling of sharp sand can be good also.

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!

“Mattie Chitzmats” - By Glenn A. Hascall My next door neighbour was a prune. I don’t mean any disrespect, but she really looked like a four-and-ahalf foot prune. I don’t have a picture of her but the two closest descriptions of her I can give is either a prune or ET’s grandmother. I really am not trying to be disrespectful! I remember her in the fondest of terms. We called her Granny. If she went by any other name I never knew it or have long since forgotten it. She kept mostly to herself and would often be seen with a walking stick in hand carrying her wrinkled body through neighbourhood alleys. Her granddaughter (in her 70’s) spoke a little English and told us that Granny had come from Mexico in her late 70’s after her husband passed away and had stopped celebrating her birthday at 97 (which had been some years before I knew her). Most people stayed away from Granny. Not only was she very old, but she didn’t speak English and wore a variety of tattered clothes. This grandmother several times

TLD December 2010 page 20

over helped raise several generations of younguns’. There would come a time when Granny would find herself alone. And when she was, my mother would make a little extra at suppertime and my sister I would take it over to Granny’s house. Granny would never come to the door although she might occasionally pull back a curtain and peer through the window at us, her eyes partially hidden by the flowing wrinkles on her face. So we learned to leave the meal on her doorstep and knock. Once we were a safe distance away we would see her hand reach outside the door and the plate and its contents would disappear inside. The next morning we would hear a knock on our front door, by the time we got there Granny was gone, but she left behind a clean plate with a stack of homemade tortillas still warm from the pan. Soon it became a neighbourly ritual; we would supply her supper and she made sure we were never without fresh tortillas. Granny would never let us actually thank her or even talk to her, but she

21 understood what my family was doing and she appreciated it and even without words she let us know of her gratitude. One Christmas, after we had read Luke, chapter two, opened presents and were enjoying the holiday, I heard the doorbell ring. I didn’t suspect Granny because she always knocked. When I reached the front door I had to look down and I saw a short, toothless, wrinkled lady grinning from ear to ear. She held out a plate of Christmas Tamales and said, “Mattie Chitzmats”. I was so startled to hear Granny speak that her very broken English words didn’t register right away. By the time I realized that she had personally wished my family a Merry Christmas she was backing away, waving and grinning. This beautiful, wonderful, toothless prune of a granny had shared Christmas cheer with my family. As I recall those were the only two words I ever heard Granny say, but her life spoke volumes. And in that moment of Christmas cheer I came to realize the arrival of our Saviour Jesus Christ continues to leave a lasting impression on

regular people. He didn’t come just for those of us who speak English. He didn’t come just for those who attend church in their very best clothing. He didn’t come just for those who had a particular colour of skin. He didn’t even come just for those who were wrinkle-free. He came for me. He came for you. And He came for Granny. A smooth skinned baby and a wrinkled old woman. This, my friends, is the story of a Christmas past and the best Christmas present. Mattie Chitzmats to all and to all – Jesus Christ. By Glenn A.
