Merry Christmas West Moors! I truly cannot believe that a whole year has passed by. Hayden, our son, had his 8th Birthday last week so we were extra busy with a family bowling trip to Tower Park, followed a few days later with a party at Snowtrax. Life is one big party at this age… I wonder why we change it? Maybe we should switch the TV off, forget the news, get the old fashion games out of the loft and actually talk to each other. Just an idea. Christmas is certainly a good time for families and we will definitely be playing board games as well as a few electronic ones to keep our youngest generation happy. I love it and I hope you do too. We have a full little magazine for you this month, so do take the time to look through. When calling any of the advertisers inside please mention The West Moors Directory. This makes all the difference. The lucky winner of the prize wordsearch and the family set of tickets for the Jack and the Beanstalk Pantomime at the Bournemouth Pavilion was Mr R Dawkins. Have a great night out! This month there is a Champagne Hamper for the winner, so good luck with that one! We also have an additional game… can you spot how many Father Christmas with Rudolf pictures there are hidden in the magazine?? There is a bottle of wine for the first person to send the correct answer in on the form on page 35! Steve and I here at Dorset Publications wish you a really Happy Christmas and a Wonderful New Year. Whatever you do, keep smiling! All the Very Best,

Debbie Useful Numbers

Local teen launches roller disco for Ferndown Thirteen year old Oli Fletcher of West Moors launched a brand new roller disco on 18th September this year at Ferndown Leisure Centre. The roller disco will operate every Sunday throughout the year. There will be two very different sessions. The first, running from 4.30 – 6pm is aimed at families, followed by a session with a minimum age of 12 which will have a more club/disco-style feel from 6.30pm – 8.30pm. The family session will be suitable for anyone from novice to advanced, providing a safe, fun environment to participate in something all together. “My parents have found that there are very few activities that they can join in with when they take us out – so this early session provides the ideal opportunity for an informal family outing with good music, disco lighting and games such as bulldog and basketball” comments Oli. “Whilst the parents can of course just watch, they will be actively encouraged to participate,” he adds. “Importantly there will be no minimum age for skaters – my 5 year old brother and sister have been skating since they were four, with relatively little effort they are now very impressive on their wheels.” The second session, geared towards teens and adults of all ages, will be a disco benefiting from fantastic music, up-to-date sound and lighting equipment, lasers, haze machines, ultra-violet effects and strobes – which will transform the sports hall into an atmospheric club venue. “My dad was and still is very into skating and is hoping that adults do come along to keep him company”. Oli, who attends Poole Grammar School, is a keen skater and music fan. He found that the local area did not really cater for skating and felt it would benefit from a disco on wheels. “We moved here from London three years ago, and whilst I love all that’s on offer here, there’s not much for kids my age to do.” says Oli. “I tried other local events but found them

TWMD December 2011 page 6

to be quite limited. After some persuasion I managed to get my parents to invest in some great quality equipment so we could create that all-important atmosphere, playing a great range of music in a fantastic facility. The venue, Ferndown Leisure Centre, is fully supportive of the project. Andy Lovering, General Manager commented: “Oli’s Roller Disco is a great scheme, initiated by a young person in our community which will greatly benefit the area. The main sports hall here at Ferndown is the perfect location with its newly-resurfaced floor, and is big enough to accommodate a large skating audience”. You will need to bring your own skates, however we will have a limited stock of skates from The Skate Shop in Poole available to buy at the launch session at a discounted price. After the launch event Oli’s Roller Disco patrons can get a 10% discount via a downloadable voucher from their website www.olisrollerdisco.co.uk.

Puppies Find Peel2Save Cards Scrumptious Fundraising Idea The Mayor and The Mayoress of Bournemouth headed the guest list for the official launch of the Peel2Save fundraising card held at the Playgolf Centre. Other guests included local MP Tobias Ellwood, charity organisers and business leaders. But the stars of the show were the Woofability puppies who captured the hearts of all in attendance and who thought the idea was good enough to eat. Following the opening presentation by Debbie Shepherd and Peter Bartholomew, co-ordinators for Peel2Save in the area of Bournemouth, The Worshipful, The Mayor of Bournemouth Councillor Chris Rochester praised the initiative; “It’s the smaller, local charities that need more help in these difficult times” he said “and I wish Peel2ASave all success”. Di Pestell, a fundraiser from Julia’s House added her good wishes and then gave a heartfelt description of the challenges that are facing charitable organisations today; “It won’t be any easier next year” she said “and we need all the help we can get. We have to go on because the causes that rely on us still go on needing our help”. She went on to agree with Debbie’s view that Peel2Save was not there to replace existing fundraising activities, but was an original and effective addition that would really boost and enhance their steadfast efforts. “The great thing is that charities are now able to give something back to people who make donations to them”, said Di. Peel2Save helps local charities and not-forprofit groups raise funds without incurring any speculative costs. The attractive discount card folds to the size of a credit card, fits neatly into a purse or wallet and

TWMD December 2011 page 16

contains 64 peel-off money saving vouchers, each one donated by a local business. The card costs £10 and contains hundreds of pounds worth of savings for all the family. Cards are sold exclusively by or on behalf of the good causes who gain £5 from the sale of each one. Charities, schools, churches, sports clubs and virtually any other group can benefit. “Fundraisers I have spoken to are looking forward to selling the card - knowing they are raising money but also giving the purchaser of Peel2Save a great deal”, said Peter. “It is our aim to raise £50,000 in the next 12 months for good causes in the Bournemouth area.” If you are a charity or not for profit group and would like to know more about Peel2Save and how it can help you to fundraise please email Debbie and Peter at:

Its thirtieth member signed on this week and a further ten are expected to come on board before the club officially goes ‘live’ on 2 February next year. Heading up the recruitment drive, Ian Pounds said: ‘The response from the local business community has been fantastic. We’ve progressively registered 30 members in just six weeks and there’s already a strong team spirit. Plans are already well advanced for a number of social and fund raising events, not least escorting Father Christmas on his ‘meet the kids’ tour of Parley in a few weeks time!’ P r e p a r a to r y m e e t i n g s h a v e b e e n underway since early October, the interim

Talking about wildlife with

Helping wildlife in your winter garden As many of our native species face losing their natural habitat or part of it, gardens have become of increasing importance to wildlife. Gardens in the UK form an area that is larger than nature reserves and national parks combined, and they can act as a bridge between urban areas and natural habitats. There are several easy but effective steps you can take to help wildlife in your garden. All wildlife needs food, water, shelter and places to breed in order to flourish, and even a small garden that provides all of these can make a big difference. A permanent water feature is essential, and although a pond is ideal, it is not always practical, and any source of water is better than none. Something as simple as an undisturbed pile of leaves or logs in the corner of your garden will provide a home for insects, frogs and small mammals like hibernating hedgehogs.

They may even be used by birds or mice for shelter over the winter. Although not much loved by gardeners, ivy is a good source of shelter and nectar for insects, and berries for birds over the winter months. By not tidying up your garden too much and leaving some seed heads of flowers and grasses, you will be doing many species a favour. Finally, by not using pesticides or slug pellets in your garden you will provide the best possible habitat for a variety of wildlife. For more wildlife gardening tips and how to enter the Big Wildlife Garden Competition, visit the website at www.dorsetwildlifetrust.org.uk/wg or ring 01305 264620.

Planting a variety of nectar and pollen rich plants is vital and this is a great time to look at your garden and plan for next season; plants that flower at different times will ensure food throughout the year for different species, and a good mixed hedgerow will provide shelter and food for the winter. Now is a great time for hedge planting and for placing nest boxes for next spring.
