Hello Southbourne! I am now really sure that the water “shortage” should be well handled. Bring back the sun! We have a couple of celebrity interviews this month that should make interesting reading. Hear from Christine Bleakley on her new workout regime and Sir Richard Branson on his secrets to success. I am looking for local people’s celebrations so that we can wish you Happy Birthday, Happy Anniversary or drool over the photo of your new baby. It will be a new feature in our forthcoming issues and could be a great way to wish someone a Happy Day! Also if you have a group or club you would like everyone to know more about please email your data to us. There may be many people who would love to know about you or can give some help. If you have done something good or really worth while I can also promote that for you too. We all like to hear good news! If you have any suggestions or ideas for these pages then please let me know. In the meantime do keep our advertisers busy. They like that. Many are very happy with all the calls they get from you. The Southbourne Link is definitely a great way to link local people and trades people together. Wishing you a great month of July… and may the sun shine! Best Wishes,

Debbie

“There’s nothing more distressing after losing a parent than finding out that their savings did not need to be spent on their care home fees. The system has let many people down very badly indeed.” This is the view of Jonathan Anderson, an experienced Will and Trust Specialist and founder of www.Recovernursinghomefees.com. Jonathan is currently progressing dozens of compensation assessments in the south of England where the lack of standardised criteria used in assessing who pays Nursing Home fees has potentially left families tens of thousands of pounds worse off. “Unfortunately differences in assessment between different UK Health Authorities has created a postcode lottery in whether the Primary Care Trust (PCT) or individuals have had to pay for care” Jonathan explained. “The Government has acknowledged that this has been unfair and have set aside a billion pounds in compensation.“ Compensation claims are open to anyone who was/is paying for residential care from April 2004 but there are deadlines to register cases, the earliest of which is September 2012.

TSL July 2012 page 6

“If you think that the fee assessment was not properly handled then it’s imperative to start the ball rolling now” Jonathan told us. “Our no win no fee policy means there is absolutely no barrier to anyone starting the process.” Once a case is accepted, a home visit prepares all the paperwork and all cases are submitted with an expert medical report produced by Senior Medical Practioners with experience of elderly care. “Compensation is not going to bring back a relative who has sadly passed away but helping to recover a financial legacy that was lost due to poor PCT practices is very important for the families left behind.”

Interview with Sire Richard Branson

10

www.facebook.com/SouthbourneLink

If I Were a Rich Man Sir Richard Branson is back with another peek into the world of the UK’s most celebrated business brain. For one of the richest men in the country, Richard Branson is about as normal a bloke as you could ever wish to meet. The chairman of the Virgin Group may have built up a personal fortune of $1.4billion over four decades - in doing so making him one of the most recognisable figures in the UK. But speaking to the 61-year-old is not how you would imagine conversing with one of the world’s most famous businessmen. “I believe in living life to the full, making the most of every single day,” Branson says in his unfailingly positive tone. “I just live for the moment, which is a cliché but it is true. I have a great life. I would be a bit sad if I didn’t make the most of it, wouldn’t I?” Branson is not wrong when he says he has a great life - you just have to look at his 74-acre Necker Island home that he shares with wife Joan to recognise that this is a man who goes by the maxim ‘work hard/play hard’. “It is my favourite place in the entire world. It was love at first sight as soon as I saw it all those years ago. It’s like being on holiday when I’m there because it is

TSL July 2012 page 10

Sir Richard Branson such a wonderful setting and there are always parties going on. I wouldn’t want to live anywhere else.” Of course, the luxury has been hardearned – the rewards of positive thinking and decisive decision-making; both outstanding trademarks of Branson’s extraordinary career. From humble beginnings – Branson left school at 15 with no qualifications – he has built up a worldwide conglomerate that now has over 400 companies. Having enjoyed huge successes with products rangin g from airlin es to trainlines, mobile phones to the internet, Branson is considered the oracle on all things business. And happily for budding entrepreneurs, he has revealed his secrets in a new book Like a Virgin:

Friday, July 06, 2012 00:18 Black Magenta Yellow Cyan


Find us online at www.southbournelink.co.uk Secrets They Won’t Teach you at Business School. “I get sent so many questions from people – via text, via email, via tweet – that it is impossible for me to get back to everyone, so I thought I would answer everybody’s questions in one go by writing the book. And I’ve enjoyed it.” So what are Branson’s key pieces of advice? “I always think that for something to be successful, it has to be an obvious labour of love for those involved. I am passionate about all my projects because if I’m not passionate about something, why should anyone else be? “But the idea must be a great one. If you have a great idea that will improve people’s lives, then you can’t go wrong. You have to have products that people can see will make their lives better.” But it isn’t just his inspirational ideas that have marked Branson out as a visionary, it is the quality of service too, and his message is simple – go the extra mile. “You will only be a success if you are offering your customer the best they can find,” he says with certainty. “It is absolutely vital. If it’s an airline, it has to be the best. If it’s a trainline, it has to be the best. If it’s the internet, it has to be the best. And if you’re offering the best, you will earn people’s trust.” Such an incredibly diverse business roadmap may seem unlikely nowadays for the next generation of entrepreneur to follow, but Branson says that business school and qualifications are not the be all and end all for aspiring businessmen. “I learned to survive by doing it, making

TSL July 2012 page 11

11

mistakes as I went along, and that can happen today. Anybody can make themselves a success – you just need the idea. And perseverance. I have had my share of failures but I’ve never let any of them put me off trying something else. You can succeed even if you’ve failed.” So what of the future? As you might expect, Branson isn’t ready for the pipe and slippers just yet. “I want to carry on, definitely,” he says merrily. “I feel fit and healthy and there is no reason for me to stop. There is still so much to achieve. Who knows what tomorrow might bring?”

Sir Richard Branson’s new book, ‘Like A Virgin: Secrets They Won’t Tell you at Business School’, published by Virgin Books, is out now.

Interview with Christine Cleakley

22

www.facebook.com/SouthbourneLink

Workouts & Weddings TV presenter Christine Bleakley opens up about a big few months ahead. With rock hard abs and a red carpetworthy body that most of us would kill for, it’s no wonder that Christine Bleakley has been named Reebok Ambassador alongside the super fit Jack Osbourne. Thames-side, with London’s iconic Tower Bridge stood behind them, the pair went head to head at the launch of the much talked about fitness initiative, pulling out burpees and squats and working with dumbbells to push their bodies to the limit. Yet after an intense workout, Christine barely breaks into a sweat. “The first time I did Crossfit, I could only do 10 burpees (that’s ‘squat thrusts’ to you and I) I couldn’t breathe afterwards!” she says. “But now I’ll be able to do maybe 25 and that’s a massive difference. You can easily set goals to quickly increase your levels of fitness.” Essentially, the idea behind CrossFit is that a series of varied functional movements performed at high intensity helps to achieve overall physical fitness – so one minute you’re doing push-ups, the next you’re lunging into squats and doing stomach crunches. “It’s very much back to basics,” says Christine.

TSL July 2012 page 22

Christine Bleakley “There are no big scary machines that you don’t know how to use and it never gets boring because you spend 20 seconds doing one thing before moving on to something else. If you don’t have time to go to the gym, you can do this in short, sharp bursts and you can get it done in half an hour. “That said, working out with others who also want to push themselves gives the sport a real sense of community. You’re competing with the other team, but more importantly you’re always competing with yourself.”

Friday, July 06, 2012 00:18 Black Magenta Yellow Cyan


Find us online at www.southbournelink.co.uk Engaged to Chelsea footballer, Frank Lampard, Christine says living with a sportsman has its advantages. “We’re very supportive of each other and sometimes we work out together,” she says. “We enjoy our fitness and being relatively healthy, but we’re only healthy so that we can allow ourselves the odd treat. Nothing stops me pigging out!” Looking at Christine’s petite size 10 frame, you’d struggle to believe the TV personality was such a foodie. “Maintaining a healthy diet is everything for me,” she says. “I love food and I love cooking, because I enjoy it so much. And if I know I’m going out for dinner in the evening, I’ll do a workout that morning. It makes me feel less guilty about the pigging out bit! It all b alan ces its elf ou t as far as I’m concerned.” It’s refreshing to learn that Christine is neither diet- nor fitness-obsessed. Like most of us, she struggles to fit in a workout every day and aims for two good sessions a week. “We’re in an age where people are conscious of the way they look, but for me, more than anything, I like to exercise to clear my head,” she says. “I love emptying everything. I get very lethargic if I go a whole week without doing anything. Working out makes me feel good.” Desp ite h er imp ressi ve p h y siqu e, Christine admits there isn’t a part of her body she particularly loves. “I have bits that I potentially don’t mind on show as

TSL July 2012 page 23

23

opposed to bits that I know I will always cover,” she says. “There’s never a part of my body I look at and think, ‘Yes, you’re looking good today.’” It’s reassuring to know that even the super fit have body hang-ups and, for Christine, it’s her bottom. “I need to get back into doing lots of squats over the summer,” she says. “I want to have a pert bottom by the end of August!” So has she always been so fit? An active career in the media, Christine argues, has kept her on the ball. “Before TV presenting I was a floor manager on dramas so I was constantly on the go. Lots of times I’d keep fit from running around at work, never mind doing anything else outside of it. I never considered an office job sat at a desk all day - it’s difficult when you do that because that means you need to work that little bit extra outside of work. I’ve always been very lucky in that respect.” General fitness ambitions aside, it’s no secret that Christine is in the midst of planning a wedding – so is she ready for an all-over bridal body blitz? “I’ll get the summer over with first,” she says. “I know when the big day looms, you start thinking you’ve got to fit into the dress. Panic hasn’t set in yet, undoubtedly it will, but I’m not thinking about it right now. When we get round to planning, I know Frank will be involved, so that makes the whole thing a little less daunting, I suppose!”

THE RACE IS ON... AS THE FASTEST SHOW ON EARTH RETURNS TO UK! Bill Kenwright presents one of the best loved and longest running musicals in theatrical history, as Andrew Lloyd Webber’s sensational Starlight Express explodes back onto the stage with a new production for 2012, set to take the UK by electrifying storm, including at the BIC from 31 July till 18 August. Starlight Express opened to packed houses at the Apollo Victoria in London’s West End in 1984 where it ran for over 7000 performances. It is one of the most successful musicals ever with the German production still running in Bochum after 25 years. Light years ahead of the rest, this futuristic tale about love and hope in the face of adversity promises to take you on the ride of a lifetime – with two hours of speed, spectacle, energy, daredevil stunts and turbo charged excitement, combined with an electrifying sound track, dazzling sets and costumes, extraordinary rollerchoreography and some of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s most memorable musical hits. Andrew Lloyd Webber wrote Starlight Express originally for his own children. His extensive credits include The Phantom of the Opera, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Jesus Christ Superstar, Evita and Cats. He pioneered television casting for musical theatre with the Emmy Award-winning BBC series How Do You Solve a Problem Like Maria? His awards include seven Tonys, three Grammys including Best Contemporary Classical Composition for Requiem, seven Oliviers, a Golden Globe, an Oscar, two International Emmys, the Praemium

Gardening Tips

26

www.facebook.com/SouthbourneLink

What to do in your Garden in July Now that we have reached July the garden should really be taking off. That also means, unfortunately that weeds will be doing the same and this is A Ladybird on a stem of grass something that must be kept must be kept on top of, and unless you use chemical pesticides in your garden the only way to keep them in check is good old fashioned weeding by hand. While you are at this task keep an eye out for pests, pick them off and dispose of them in the bin not the compost heap. Don’t mistake Ladybirds (for a pest as they are beneficial to the garden as they eat aphids. This wont work if you use chemical bug sprays. To encourage them plant some of the following: Angelica, Caraway, Cilantro, scented Geraniums, Tansies and Yarrow. Jobs to be done in the garden this month include the following: • Prune Spring flowering shrubs such as Weigela, Kolkwitzia and Wisteria, reduce their size by a third. You can also prune Apricot, Cherry and Plum trees at this time to help prevent Silver Leaf Disease. • Clip Box, Euonymus and Privet hedges. • Dead head perennials, summer bedding flowers and hanging baskets to keep them looking fresh and encourage further blooming. • Keep your eye out for Clematis wilt which shows in wilting leaves and black discolouration of the stems and leaves. If you spot this cut out and safely dispose of the infected part. • Continue to tie up the new shoots on Climbers to encourage them to go where you want them to, not where they might wander.

When you have done all this one additional thing you might consider, even if your garden is “fully stocked”, and that is have a wander around various Garden Centres. Keep a notebook and pen with you and note down any varieties that would make a good addition to your garden in the future. If you are wise you will choose a place that has a Café in it so that after a good go round you can nip in, sit down with a latte or a cup of tea and a sticky bun and contemplate all the changes you could make to improve your garden even more. “Oh the calories” do I hear you cry? But you’ve already weeded and walked Beautiful Cosmos those off.

Simple Sudoku Perfect for your coffee break! The one rule: Fill in all blank cells making sure that each row, each column and each 3 by 3 box contains the numbers 1 to 9.

“Where words fail, music speaks...” said Hans Christian Anderson Children who grow up hearing music, singing songs and moving to the beat enjoy a rich sensory environment, exposing them to a wide variety of senses leading to an awareness of speech patterns and sense of rhyme skills fundamental to learning to read and write. Enjoy music with your child by listening to classical and jazz tracks - Saint-Saens’s ‘Carnival of the Animals’ or Donald Byrd’s ‘Black Jack’ has a fantastic train theme. Dance with your child, varying the rhythms and tempo of your body – great for fractious babies and producing endorphins for the exhausted parent! Scarves can demonstrate ascending and descending pitches — raise the scarves as you sing up the scale and then drop them down as your voice descends. Joining a music class is a great way to socialise and learn with your child and ‘Musical Steps’ run popular classes for babies, toddlers and pre-schoolers in Bournemouth, Christchurch and Westbourne. So next time you’re lost for words, make music! - after all, “Music produces a kind of pleasure which human nature cannot do without.” Heather Smith – Musical Steps, Dorset
