Dear West Moors, Well done to all those who have helped save our library! Article on page 6. So the holiday time is upon us. Hayden, our son, has gone to Grandma and Grandad’s for a couple of weeks up North. He could not wait to get in the car! When I called this evening and Grandma asked if he wanted to speak to me, his casual response was “No that’s fine”. I guess he is doing well then! Funny aren’t they. I can’t blame him… boat trips, steam engines, fishing, parks, games and undivided attention. That’s what Grandparents are for hey. We are very lucky. I hope if you are a grandparent that you get to see your grandchildren too. So — despite all the fun of the summer (and I do hope we get some more sunshine) do take a look through The West Moors Directory and get some help in the house, get the car fixed, the windows repaired, have the garden maintained, your carpets cleaned or indeed get lots of things done that you haven’t gotten around to yet. All of the advertisers inside will be very willing to help. Please give them a call and do mention the Directory! I always love to hear that the local people are getting lots of calls. There are of course many articles from local organisations and clubs who would also love to hear from you. The very lucky winner of the Big Three at the BIC last month was J Holt. Well done to you and we hope you have a great day out with the family! This month the prize is an organic beauty basket. Steve and I wish you all a fabulous summer! Very Best Wishes,

Debbie Useful Numbers

West Moors

Library Saved!

Thanks to the persistence and work of the Parish Council, Local Action Group and the support of local residents, Dorset County Council have come to the decision to not close our village library. At a full council meeting on 21st July, Dorset County Council members decided to retain 25 of the county’s 34 libraries, including West Moors, and offer up the remaining nine for communities to take over and run independently. Significant efforts were made locally, including read-ins, petitions and lobbying by the Parish Council and Local Action Group. More than 2,000 people signed a petition urging councillors to remove the library, in Station Road, from the list of ten community libraries which could be shut next year. It was argued that a large bequest left by former resident Daphne Harrison in 1994 meant the council would have to repay around £64,000, as laid out in a 15-year agreement. They also said if the library was to close in 2012, repayment of the loan would outweigh any savings likely to be made by the county council for at least two years. This is fantastic news for the village and full support of the library and its facilities should be maintained to ensure that we make the most of what we have!

VULCAN EFFECT SPREADS TO A SECOND DISPLAY Avro Vulcan confirmed for second Festival appearance Bournemouth Air Festival organisers have confirmed that the mighty Avro Vulcan will now be able to display twice thanks to the support of S&D Leisure, who are supporting Saturday’s display, and Bournemouth Airport, the appearance supporter for Sunday.

Jon Weaver, Bournemouth Air Festival director says; “What a great addition to an already great flying programme. We’re so pleased to have the Vulcan for a second display, so a big thank you to S&D Leisure and Bournemouth Airport for their generous contribution.”

Stanley Reeves, owner of S&D Leisure said; “We’re proud to support the Vulcan display on Saturday where she’ll be joining the Red Arrows and Tornado Role Demo for what I’m sure will be another great Festival ‘power hour’. It’s certainly going to get loud!”

The Bournemouth Air Festival will be taking place at Bournemouth seafront on August 18th to the 21st and boasts a line up that includes the Red Arrows and The Battle of Britain Memorial Flight.

Sally Windsor from Bournemouth Airport said; “The Vulcan is such a tremendous crowd-puller at every event she displays at, so the opportunity to bring her to Bournemouth was too tempting to pass up.” The imposing bomber is operated by the Vulcan to the Sky Trust, who are delighted at the opportunity to display a second time. CEO of the Trust Dr Robert Pleming said; “We have always said that Bournemouth is a real highlight for us. The flight path along the beach is glorious, the huge crowds very enthusiastic and the reception to the Vulcan is always extremely warm, so we’re very grateful to S&D Leisure for allowing us to extend the Vulcan effect to a second display”.

Talking about wildlife with

Bees

The buzzing drone of a bee is a familiar sound and a sign of summer to us all. There are over 250 different types of wild bee in the UK, from the biggest bumble bees down to small solitary bees, and the part that they play in our ecosystem, food chain and economy is invaluable. Bumble and honeybees live in colonies, whereas solitary bees build their own nests and are not dependent on others. Most bees feed on pollen and nectar, although leaf cutter bees feed their larvae on chewed leaves instead of pollen. Some bees, such as cuckoo bumble bees and some solitary bees, don’t collect their own pollen but lay their eggs in other bees’ nests as parasites. Many plants and flowers depend directly on the pollination carried out by bees, as do dozens of crops, including an estimated one third of human food sources. However, despite their importance to us and the environment, bees are facing severe threats and even possible extinction caused by modern farming practices, increased chemical use, disease and loss of habitat. Our meadows no longer support the wide variety of wild flowers they once did, and many hedgerows have been lost in the last few decades, leading to a loss of vital food sources for the bees. Some bumblebee species have already vanished altogether and others are in decline. Urgent action is required to ensure the survival of our bee populations, and everyone can do their part to help reduce the plight of bees. By not using chemicals and by

TWMD August 2011 page 32

growing traditional garden and native wild flowers such as foxglove, lavender, catmint, comfrey and clovers, you can create a natural, bee friendly habitat. Try to introduce wild vetches such as bird’s foot trefoil and red clover in to your lawn or at least part of it. The pollen is particularly pr o t ei n-r i ch a nd v er y i m po r t a nt f o r developing bumble bee embryos. Smaller bees will prefer single, open or flat-headed flowers such as daisies, scabious and evening primrose. Herbs are also excellent bee plants. Putting up a nesting box or tube is easy and providing a home for bees will benefit your garden as well. For more information on bee friendly gardening, see: www.dorsetwildlifetrust.org.uk/wg
