Dear Neighbours, I am now really sure that the water “shortage” should be well handled. Bring back the sun! Stephen, Hayden and I enjoyed a lovely afternoon on Fryers Field for the Jubilee Party in the Park. There was a good turn out and we have some pictures that can be seen on pages 24 and 25. All great fun! We have a couple of celebrity interviews this month that should make interesting reading. Hear from Christine Bleakley and Sir Richard Branson. I am also 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. It will be a new feature in our forthcoming issues and could be a great way to wish someone a Happy Day! Just give me a call or send an email. 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 West Moors Directory 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,

Interview with Christine Cleakley

12

www.facebook.com/WestMoorsDirectory

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.

TWMD July 2012 page 12

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.”

Wednesday, July 04, 2012 21:51 Black Magenta Yellow Cyan


Find us online at www.westmoorsdirectory.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

TWMD July 2012 page 13

13

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!”

Supersweet Dorset blues coming soon The UK’s original blueberry plantation is opening its gates for PYO blueberry fans this summer. Eight varieties of these tasty supersweet berries will be available to pickers visiting Trehane’s plantation near Wimborne, from the early ripening Earliblue right through to the later Coville variety. Picking is anticipated to begin on 20th July and last through til the end of August. Sen sation al fresh from th e b u sh , blueberries are one of the only fruit that also freezes really well, and with little bending involved in picking from acres of established bushes, it’s easy to fill up a few punnets to eat later – or add to your favourite recipe. The nursery has also ensured some plants are under cover so there really is no reason not to enjoy top quality local fruit this summer. Alongside the fruit you’ll find a range of blueberry baked produce available to buy including the ever-popular deep-dish blueberry pie, blueberry dessert sauce with kirsch and blueberry flapjacks. The new blueberry chocolate brownies have been a particular hit at recent food shows. Anyone wanting to know more about the plantation, how blueberries first arrived in Dorset and tips on growing blueberries in beds and containers can also book on to a special Blueberry Workshop and Plantation Tour, which takes place at 2pm on 21st July and costs just £7.50, including refreshments. Hosted by horticulturist and auth or Jennifer Trehane, booking is essential, call the nursery on 01202 873490.

Trehane Nursery is in Stapehill Road, near Wimborne. PYO opens daily whilst fruit is available from 10am – 4pm. To check availability call 01202 873490 or go online to www.trehane.co.uk, twitter @pyoblueberry or facebook /pyoblueberries

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

TWMD July 2012 page 32

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:

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

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.
