Dear Neighbours! With the better weather we have had recently I am certainly hopeful that this summer we are encouraged to get out and enjoy our local countryside and places of interest, rather than looking to get on a plane to get away from it all! One of our recent acquisitions has been a converted campervan, which not only enables the transportation of the magazines each month, but also gives us an excuse to get out and explore the local area. We will be making regular feature out of this and hope to share some of our adventures with you to give an idea of places that you might like to try yourselves. See our latest exploits on page 32. Inside The West Moors Directory we do of course have our local trades and business people who would love to hear from you. Categories range from curtains and blinds to hearing aids, solar energy and tree care, car repairs and glazing, taxis and granite kitchen work tops. All can easily be found in our useful index on page 46. You will also find in this month’s edition local articles including the final chapter in our series on the railway, St. Martin’s Church Flower Festival, local events which highlights our very own Fun Day. There is an additional competition this month to win tickets to Broadway Showtunes. This is an ideal little booklet to keep by the phone, after you have read it. You never know when you may need some help! If you have visited somewhere local and would like to write a little article about your experiences, please feel free to email - we would love to see your photos too. We look forward to hearing from you! Very Best Wishes,

From Ward to Board Paula Shobbrook is Director of Nursing and Midwifery at the Royal Bournemouth and Christchurch hospitals and will carry out this role in the new merged organisation, if approved. Here Paula talks about how essential ward to Board reporting is to ensure quality of care for patients. “My job is focused on providing the highest quality of patient care,” explains Paula. “Quite simply, we are judged by what happens at the bedside.” And for Paula this means regularly getting back into her uniform and going out onto the wards. As Director of Nursing and Midwifery, Paula sits on the hospital’s Board and having firsthand knowledge is crucial: “If we’re going to sit in a board meeting, making major decisions about patient care or what is happening in the hospital, this ‘ward to board’ connection is vitally important.” Her interest in patient care started when she volunteered for the Red Cross as a youngster, and a colleague at the charity suggested she took up nursing as a career. Since then, she has built up a wealth of knowledge from working in various positions in the NHS. Paula has an important role in leading the new organisation and retaining that connection with nurses at ward level. “I’m at the centre of making decisions about issues that matter, but

it also allows me to keep in touch with life on the wards. This connection will be vital if the merger b e t we e n t h e two foundation trusts is approved. Continuing to provide quality Paula Shobbrook services locally is the driver behind merger. While the two organisations already provide excellent services, we want to retain that and together we can be even better.” Patient feedback is important in helping any hospital provide high quality of care. “We carefully review feedback and if there are areas we need to improve we make sure we put it right. The merger is about ensuring we can continue to provide quality of care but also to improve and meet new standards. “We need to be able to adapt and change so that we can provide the best care and services possible, and the proposed merger is another step towards meeting the challenges of the modern world. “We already wor k very closely across Bournemouth, Poole and Christchurch hospitals with many services complementing each other. We will still have the same three hospitals, but the merger will allow us to address some of the challenges currently facing the NHS. “For me, the most exciting part will be the chance to share and develop best practices from both trusts to continue to improve our services.”

110th Anniversary of St Martin’s Church in West Moors raises £359 for Julia’s House! The Flower Festival, organised at St Martin’s United Reformed Church in the centre of West Moors, to celebrate it’s 110 years presence, commitment and worship in the village raised £359 in donations for Julia’s House, the Children’s Hospice in Broadstone. Magnificent flower displays lovingly created by church members and many local organisations, including some from Verwood, filled the entrance foyer and the entire church, and the event was hailed a huge success. The church are most grateful to all those who participated. The festival was open to the public on Friday, Saturday and Sunday and the theme was ‘All things bright and beautiful’ with each arrangement representing some of the words or a feature from the song. The theme was continued on Sunday mor ning when the anniversary was celebrated by the the Reverend Clare Downing, Moderator of the United Reformed Church Wessex Synod. The anniversary festivities concluded on May 25th at 7pm when the Salvation Army Brass Band entertained.

The Adventures of Nellie

The Dorset Publications Camper Van We recently invested in a dual purpose camper van. One that can not only carry all the thousands of magazines we produce each month, to our very own valuable 70 or so distributors, but one that also has a fridge, cooker, cupboards and (a very modest…) ‘upstairs bedroom’ for Hayden, as well as a ‘cozy’ bed for Stephen and I. Nellie, the black camper van, has quite an imposing character with long black skirts, silver wing mirrors and large silver grills at the front. If you ever see her when you are out and about, please give her a wave as she is rather fond of that! She got her name from the combined words, Nissan and Elgrand which is her make. You can see her in true style below! We have designed these articles as a little fun to show you where Nellie gets to and maybe give you some ideas of where to go… in the Dorset area. For those of you well travelled and seasoned camper van drivers, you will already have experienced the joy of getting outdoors and away from it all. For us this is new and I have to say I love it. At a recent Caravan and Campers

The Thimble Inn, Piddlehinton Show we bought a years membership to Brit Stops, which is ideal if you are only wanting to stay somewhere for the night or you are on your way to somewhere much further away like Scotland or Northern Wales, or even aborad, and want to stop off on route. Once you have your membership, which is a small £25 for the year, it is FREE to stay at the designated areas. You just need to call and make sure there is a space for you that night. These are usually pubs, farms and local, off the track places that don’t always have a lot of facilities and are certainly not the usual camp sites or tourist hot spots. Quiet, off the road and a good meal can easily be enjoyed without the worry of not having a drink due to driving back home again. Our first Brit Stop day and night was spent in the village of Piddlehinton at The Thimble Inn. It is a thatched roof picture postcard pub situated in a beautiful village in typical South Dorset rolling countryside. The food was really good and all three of us


21 feasted ourselves well! There is even a well INSIDE the pub. A gorgeous little babbling brook surrounds the pub and in summer it would be ideal to sit outside. A pub that Stephen and I would happily recommend. We have a games cupboard in Nellie, one at the ready for any time we want to stop and have a ‘friendly’ competition as a family. We get quite competitive at times and both Hayden and Stephen are not very good losers. Maybe it is a man thing! It is a great way to get Hayden off his computer games and interact with us. It can take quite some doing as many parents of young boys and girls may know. This seems to work for us…at the moment. The now old fashioned, real cards come out, we have bingo and dice games and all are really enjoyed in a relaxed, away from the phones, off the beaten track atmosphere. As I said - I love it! We settled down for the night with Hayden in his ‘upstairs bedroom’. Once we pulled our bed out we realised we couldn’t open the fridge to get the milk out! We are still learning as you can see… Then Hayden got too cold and by 3am he was ‘downstairs’ with us, lying on the front seat which conveniently turns into the van when we are stationary. A cozy, warmer night was had by all!

The Westmoors Directory

The next day we woke up to birds singing and the sun just about shining, well behind some greyish looking clouds anyway. We used the facilities in the pub and then set off for Cerne Abbas. I have lived in Dorset for over 16 years and have never visited Cerne before! Shocking but true. It is surprising what we have on our doorstep that we just don’t make the effort to go out and see. We took a wrong turning at one point and finished up on a dirt track to a local farm. Oh Oh Nellie was not at all impressed with that! But that is the fun of having a lazy day out and discovering the English countryside. The giant was there in all his glory as you can see here… We did have an article on this giant in a previous issue, so I hope you were able to read it? We then went down into the local village of Cerne Abbas and had a lovely English coffee shop lunch at Abbots. We were able to amble on home in a very happy Nellie. Hayden got back onto his computer games and we got back to work, all the happier for having spent some time together as a family and seeing some of beautiful Dorset. Where will Nellie go next? See next month’s issue of… The West Moors Directory! By Debbie Corney

Rula Lenska wows audience at the Bournemouth Hearing Show Rula’s frank and warming story of how she came to terms with her hearing loss impressed the many visitors to the recent Bournemouth Hearing Show. Her inspirational talk emphasised the importance of ‘destigmatising’ hearing loss and changing people’s attitudes to encourage acceptance of the condition in the same way that we do with poor eyesight. Rula said “Having a hearing loss is nothing to be embarrassed or ashamed about and when you are able to openly discuss your hearing loss it can be a very liberating experience.”

Heather Cowell from Clarity Hearing Solutions in Verwood said: “We have received many comments from visitors to the show expressing how refreshing it was to hear a glamorous celebrity being happy to admit having hearing difficulties and being pleased t o s h a re h e r experiences with them.” Rula Lenska

West Moors Library News West Moors library recently hosted an exhibition of photographs, newspaper cuttings and maps of the village as it used to be. We had many positive comments and much interest shown especially with the information we had about the old railway line running through West Moors. As a result express has been shown in starting a Historical Society and anyone interested should put their name on the list at the library. Another new venture for us is the Reminiscence Group which we have started. It is hoped to be run on a regular basis depending on the interest. At the first meeting we had 10 people attending with lots of laughter and memories shared. The next dates are 28th May and 25th June 2pm – 3pm followed by tea and coffee. We continue to run the Knit and Natter group on the first Monday of the month from 2.30pm. Do come along and make some new friends.

Library Gets Lively is for the pre school age group and is held on the first and third Thursday morning of the month from 10.30 – 11.15am. It includes rhymes, stories and a small craft activity. It would be wonderful to see more mums and children attend this regular free event. A plea – we have three reading groups who meet once a month at the library. Two of the groups are looking for new members. The group selects a book to read during the month, discusses it and then recommends other books that might be of interest. The reading groups are the first to know when we have events on ie author visits, talks and promotions. If you love reading this is for you – phone 01202 873272 for more details. Don’t forget the library is a ‘hive of information’ with details of local events and activities regularly updated.
