The Southbourne Link Dear Neighbours, Edition 35

Published by: Debbie & Stephen Corney at Dorset Publications

Telephone:

Well we needed some rain but I think we got more than we bargained for! I’d like a little sunshine again now. I think you will agree. I am looking for local people’s celebrations so that we can all wish you Happy Birthday, Happy Anniversary or drool over the photo of your new baby. Please see page 32 for the data. It will be a new feature in our next issue and could be a great way to wish someone a Happy Day! If you have a local club or society do let me know too...let the local people of Southbourne know all about you through The Southbourne Link!

Mr David Hilliam sadly passed away on 1st May 2012. He will be greatly missed by all his family and friends as well as his colleagues at The Southbourne Literary Society. David was a well loved man and had a full life, leaving us at the age of 81. We here at The Southbourne Link will also miss him. His writings over the past year have been an inspiration and enjoyment for all of us. On pages 10 and 11 there is the last article that David wrote for us. Unfortunately the next article he was going to write about street parties, which David was very excited about, we will not see. Stephen and I hope you enjoy David’s final piece in this month’s edition of The Southbourne Link. David, you will not be forgotten. I hope you have a good month of May...and may the sun shine for us all. Best Wishes,

Debbie

Talking about wildlife with

Red Squirrels Britain's only native, the red squirrel, has seen its population on a steady decline. It is estimated that as few as 140,000 live in Britain as opposed to the 2.5 million greys. These squirrels are typically distinguished by their long, bushy tails, ear tufts and russet red fur. However, the colour of their fur can range from black to red, causing confusion in identification. The colour of an individual may also vary with the time of year, as thicker winter coats appears darker. The fur on a red squirrel’s belly is always white. Reds are smaller and more delicate than their grey brothers. Their bodies measure between 19 and 23cm and their tails are between 15 and 20cm. There is little difference between the sexes, making it difficult to distinguish between males and females. Sciurus (Latin for ‘squirrel’), are nimble creatures and spend the majority of their time in the treetops. They live in a range of habitats, from conifer forests to broadleaf woodlands. Look out for their large nests (dreys), which consist of twigs, moss, grass and soft hair. They may appear in the forks and hollows of trees. The diet of these rodents consists of seeds - they love the seeds in conifer cones - as well as fungi, nuts, shoots and berries. They forage for food throughout the year and will create stores in the gr ou nd du ri n g a u tum n t o pr epar e themselves for winter. The mating season begins in February and March, at which point reds may be spotted chasing one another through the trees. Red squirrels tend to produce their young in the spring. A second litter may follow in the summer. Females usually

TSL May 2012 page 6

have 2-3 kittens, but can have up to 6. These are born after 45-48 days. Their survival in England is threatened primarily by the grey squirrel, which competes for their food and also carries the squirrel pox virus. Greys are largely unaffected by squirrel pox, but it is lethal for reds. In southern England, red squirrels can be found only on the Isle of Wight and on the islands of Poole Harbour, especially Dorset Wildlife Trust’s Brownsea Island nature reserve, on the National Trust owned island, which is now open daily to visitors until November. For more information about Brownsea Island nature reserve or to adopt a red squirrel and help with conservation of their habitat, go online to our website at dorsetwildlifetrust.org.uk or ring 01305 264620.

Nice to see them… April sees the blazing forsythia bushes gleaming with their bright yellow flowers, and the sight of this reminds us to visit garden centres to buy our bedding plants ready for May. If you’ve a garden, then you’ll know the delight of planting a colourful display, and you’ll know the thrill of seeing your perennials coming into flower bang on time. What’s often forgotten is the huge number of almost-anonymous people whose names are embedded in the names of plants. We enjoy the flowers, but totally forget the human beings they should remind us of… …people like Claude Aubriet (1665-1710), a French flower and animal painter who travelled to the near east to find the objects of his art – and whose name gives us the lovely aubretia for our borders. Or Monsieur Matthias de l’Obel, (15381616), a Flemish naturalist, born in Lille, who was an enthusiastic traveller, plant collector, and author of early books on botany. He was the prestigious physician to our King James I – and gives his name to our popular little lobelia flower. Many of us will be planting begonias –

The radiant yellow of forsythia blossoms

TSL May 2012 page 10

A pink variety of the hyacinth flower wonderfully colourful and long-lasting. They are named after Michel Bégon (1638-1710), a French governor of Santa Domingo. Th e ‘b egonia’ was first discovered in Mexico by Père Plumier, an early botanist and monk, and he named it after Bégon, who was his patron. And of course we can’t forget the fuchsias – named after Leonhard Fuchs (15011566) who was appointed Professor of Medicine at Tübingen university at the early age of thirty-four. Fuchs wrote several books, including one giving advice on how to treat patients suffering from the plague, and this was published in London during the reign of Elizabeth I. Père Plu mier also discovered the ‘fuchsias’, about the year 1700 – long after Fuchs had died – but he decided to name it after Fuchs, who of course never saw the flower himself! There are so many flowers and shrubs named after people who are themselves virtually unknown: abelia, from Dr Clarke

Thursday, May 03, 2012 14:29 Black Magenta Yellow Cyan


Find us online at www.southbournelink.co.uk Abel (1780-1826), who travelled to China and later became the physician to the Governor-General of India; buddleia, after the Revd Adam Buddle (1660-1715) an English amateur botanist, and rector of a village in Essex; camellia, after George Joseph Kemel, a Jesuit from Moravia; clarkia, after Captain William Clark (17701838), an American explorer who became Governor of Missouri Territory; dahlia, after Dr Anders Dahl (1751-89), a Swedish botanist (rumour has it that the multitude of petals reminded his friends of Dahl’s wildly unkempt hair!); gardenia, after Dr Alexander Garden (1730-91), a Scottish physician and botanist, who lived for a while in South Carolina; lavatera, after two brothers Lavater, living in Zurich in the 17th and 18th centuries; magnolia, after Pierre Magnol (1638-1715) a French professor of botany and medicine at Montpelier university; nicotiana, after

11

Jean Nicot (1530-1600) who became the French ambassador to Portugal and who introduced the tobacco plant to the courts of Portugal and France… …and so it goes on! Of course, many flowers are named after Greek gods and goddesses, such as Amaryllis, Hebe, Hyacinth, Iris, Nerine, Tagetes, and Tithonus. And the veronica is named after Saint Veronica, who gave Jesus her veil to wipe the sweat off his brow. But back to forsythia… this is named after William Forsyth (1737-1804), a Scottish gardener who was superintendent of the Roy al Gard en s at St James’s an d Kensington Palace. We should think of him whenever we see those beautiful yellow bushes named after him… Nice to see them! To see them... nice! David Hilliam

Meet your aquatic neighbours for half the price during May With the London Olympics and the Queen's Jubilee just around the corner, 2012 is very much the year for celebrating all things British and all our country has to offer. As such, there has never been a better time for discovering great days out found right on your doorstop and for the whole of May the Oceanarium, the Bournemouth Aquarium, winner of Bournemouth Tourism’s Tourist Attraction of the Year 2012, is offering local residents the opportunity to do so for half price! Ideally located beside Bournemouth’s beautiful beach, Britain’s number one beach as recently voted by Trip Advisor, the Oceanarium not only provides a fun experience for visitors of all ages, it is educational and offers surprises galore! • Did you know that the Oceanarium is home to almost 1500 creatures and 300 different species? • Did you know that the Oceanarium is celebrating the 1st Birthday of ‘Otter Oasis’ - a naturally themed habitat home to Roxy and Stan, two cute but cheeky oriental small clawed otters, launched in May 2011. • Did you know that the Oceanarium is home to the world’s first virtual Interactive Dive Cage allowing visitors to discover more about great white sharks and a blue whale without getting wet? • Did you know that the Oceanarium is owned by Spanish leisure operator, Parques Reunidos, which at present encompasses over 60 theme and water parks, zoos, aquariums and cable car experiences across the world, including UK attractions, Blackpool Zoo and Lakes Aquarium in Cumbria.

TSL May 2012 page 16

• Did you know that the Oceanarium raised over £4,000 for conservation charities during 2011. Oceanarium Marketing and PR Manager Sara Kirchel said; 'We believe that there are many local people who possibly haven’t ever visited the Oceanarium and don't realise how much we have on offer - and we are right on their doorstep! Every now and again we receive visitor feedback from local residents who say; 'I don’t know why I never visited before,' and that during their visit we have exceeded their expectations. So, through the month of May, we are offering half price entry to all BH postcode residents to come and enjoy all the Oceanarium has to 'sea' and do. With all-day tickets, visitors can stroll around the waters of the world, relax and refuel in the contemporary Offshore Cafe, and then watch any of the nine daily feeding demonstrations to sea, learn and explore even more about the award winning aquarium's fascinating residents.' The Oceanarium is open seven days a week, from 10am. Call 01202 311993 or go online to www.oceanarium.co.uk for additional information.

Storage Problems?

Easy Solutions! Most people would agree that they always need more storage space than they have, but cannot do anything about it. However, sometimes the storage space is available, but because of the way a room is furnished, it is easy to lose this valuable space. Free standing wardrobes can waste a lot of storage area, as well as creating a dust trap on the top, and who really wants to spend time vacuuming the top of a wardrobe!! Because fitted furniture incorporates every inch of space into useful storage, you don’t lose any valuable storage areas and you don’t have any open tops to collect dust. It doesn’t matter how small or awkward the space is. At Custom World, your furniture is completely custom made, which means our Designer will work with you to create your unique storage solution which will fit perfectly in your room. You can complement your fitted wardrobes with bedside units and chests of drawers all made to whatever size you require and you can choose from a wide variety of designs and colours. Your furniture will be manufactured by our team of skilled joiners and fitted by our professional team of in-house fitters. So if you are fed up with wasted space, telephone us on 01202 896816 to arrange for one of our Designers to visit you for a free, no-obligation appointment. You can discuss ideas and get a quote without any pressure. Many of our satisfied customers tell us they had not considered fitted furniture before because they thought it would be too expensive. They are surprised at the amount of storage you can get at a very affordable price – we are sure you will be too!

Are Your Friends and Family Making You Fat? Do you find it very hard to say no to the cream cake, glass of wine or extra helping of your favourite that you’re offered by a well-meaning friend or family member? Getting healthy through diet and exercise creates welcome changes in your life. But your friends and family can be oblivious, jealous, and uncomfortable with this. Perhaps: they feel guilty at not working like you to lose weight or they’ve never had a weight problem and so don’t understand or they just miss the old you. Try the following: Just say “No

TSL May 2012 page 24

thanks” and leave it at that, you don’t need to explain yourself. Or take the food and leave it on the plate. Look for patterns in your food diary, then develop ways of dealing with the problem areas. Be a grown up, remember that what you put in your mouth is your responsibility. Best of all talk to them and tell them why your diet is important to you and ask for their help. Find a supportive environment, you can see a great example at Women's Workout just call 01202 488482 to find out more.

BY LAURENCE MARKS & MAURICE GRAN

From the writers, producers, creators and director of the huge success that is Dreamboats and Petticoats, Save the Last Dance for Me will take you back through the ‘music and magic’ of the early 60’s, a time when each passing week brought another Rock ‘n’ Roll classic. Written by Laurence Marks and Maurice Gran (Goodnight Sweetheart, Birds of a Feather, Shine on Harvey Moon), featuring the unmistakable music of Doc Pomus & Mort Shuman, and with authentic recreation of the sound of Rock ‘n’ Roll, this nostalgic, feel-good journey will transport you back to music’s golden era as we follow two teenage sisters through the summer of ‘63. For the first time without their parents, the siblings embark on a ho li da y to the s ea si de. F ull o f freedom and high spirits they meet a ha ndso me yo ung Ameri ca n who invites them to a dance at the local U.S. Air force base... But young love and holiday romance is never as simple as it sounds, and the sisters soon realise that while the world around them is still watching itself in black and white, life and love can be much more colourful.
