Hi there, Welcome to our July edition Summer is here! As I'm writing this it seems that the Sun is tempted to put it's hat on but we've not quite had the start to the season that we were blessed with last year. However call me optimistic, or daft but I'm sure the sunshine is just round the corner. In the spirit of Summer hope, the Dress Doctor, Stephanie Witt has given us an article this month helping men pick out the perfect accessories to enjoy the heat in. The recipe this month is a must read. I personally can't wait to get the whisk out and give this ice cream a go. I know raspberry ripple is a bit of an old flavour but it will always be a classic in my eyes and one of my favourites! Sadly we couldn't predict the Women's world cup enough to right an article about it that would be relevant during circulation but all of us here are wishing the England ladies team the best of luck, I really have enjoyed watching them get through the group stages. We have an article this month loosely linked in the name

of women's sport about the women of Wimbeldon for you. Last months quiz winner was Chloe Fitzpatrick from The Warren, Billericay who won a Dumbo DVD. Congratulations and please remember to send all your details! In the kids quiz this month your child has the chance to win a Missing Link DVD. Don’t forget you have to be in it to win it!

So pleased with the work Danny did on my drive & paths. I didn't realise that the slabs were actually a lovely creamy colour & the block paving looks amazing! All completed in a very short period of time, efficiently & courteously and at a very reasonable price. I couldn't recommend this company enough.

SPRING SUMMER 2019 MENS WEAR ACCESSORIES TREND

The rules I play by when selecting my menswear accessories all come back to two pointers: Is it luxurious and does it have a function? It is really important to spend just that little bit more to ensure that the leather on that satchel is supple or the material holding your coins is the real deal. Buy just a few key embellishments to jazz up your wardrobe, but make each one stand out and add a dose of something special. Read on to see Dress Doctor’s pick of what needs to pop:

The Timepiece Choose to be free from the screen of your smartphone and do like your ancestors and opt for a stand out watch. Use your watch for its functionality and its style status. You can go bright, chunky and sporty or minimal and paired back to sit well with any ensemble. My favourite type is the skeleton watch that shows the workings with cogs a plenty on the outside.

The Lap Top Holdall The laptop for many is the gateway to their working world and is transported from train to plane. Make this protective layer for your device score big fashion points by selecting texture, print or statement buckles and straps. Slip your other work essentials into its pockets and call it your office all-rounder.

Article sponsored by this local business

Eyewear is Essential Your sunglasses work hard at stopping those UV rays and make you look suave at the same time. Select a shape that feels both elegant and edgy. Try different frames and colours on until you meet your match. The catwalks favoured the round style akin to wizardry, but I urge you to consider the classic aviators and set your inner ‘Top Gun’ free…

Arm Adornment The bracelet is back. This is where you can let your creative juices flow and pick several beaded items to stack up in unison or you can pick just one special bejewelled item which has the function to remind you of the one you hold dear.

Raspberry Ripple Ice Cream 250g raspberries, 225g caster sugar, 2 large eggs, 4 egg yolks 600ml double cream, Raspberries or other fruit for serving

Method

Prep 20 mins › Cook 10 mins › 12 Servings

1

Place the raspberries in a pan with 2 tbsp of the sugar. Cook on a medium heat until sugar dissolves into the pulp. Simmer for 5 mins until thickened, then push the pulp through a sieve into a bowl and discard the seeds.

2

Place the eggs, egg yolks and remaining sugar into a bowl. Whisk with an electric whisk hand whisk to combine everything, then place over a pan of gently simmering water – the bowl should not touch the water. Beat with the electric whisk for 3-4 mins until thick and pale. Remove from heat and continue beating with the whisk until cool.

3

In another bowl, whisk the cream until it forms soft peaks, then gently fold into the cool egg mix until just combined. Pour the mix into a shallow container or dish that can be frozen. Just before you freeze the mixture gently swirl the raspberry puree through, cover with cling film and freeze for at least 6 hrs. Remove from the freezer about 20 minutes before serving. Place scoops of the ice cream into bowls with extra raspberries or other fruit. It's also gorgeous in cones.

BLACK EYED SUSAN You might not know its name, but you are probably familiar with the Rudbeckia. A late summer perennial daisy. It's sometimes called Coneflower or Black-eyed Susan. It flowers from early August to late September and I find it a valuable addition to the late summer garden. It does particularly well in full sun in rich, well-drained soil. You can sow them as annuals indoors in spring to set out after frost or plant as perennials in spring or autumn. Divide every 3 to 4 years and deadhead to avoid self-seeding, though personally I see self-seeding as a bonus trait in a plant! Mildew can be an issue on the foliage but can be avoided if you don't overcrowd the plants. Watch the young foliage because slugs and snails find it tasty. Once the plants are established this isn't a problem. Rudbeckia ‘Golden compass’ produces masses of classic bright yellow and black Rudbeckia flowers on a bushy plant. It grows up to 70cm in height and can be grown from seed as a half-hardy annual or a short-lived hardy perennial. Rudbeckia fulgida is the classic ‘Black-eyed Susan’, with sunflower-yellow flowers and a very black central cone. It does better in damper ground than many of the varieties so choose this one if your garden is less welldrained.

Gardening Article Sponsored by

I love Rudbeckia ‘Prairie glow’. It is a stunning plant and good for adding height as it grows to 1.5m. Its huge 6cm diameter flowers have warm orange petals with yellow tips. Rudbeckia ‘Irish eyes’ is a more unusual variety with a yellowish rather than brown cone, as well as yellow florets. It repeat flowers from July through to October. If your soil is on the dry side, try Rudbeckia fulgida ‘Deamii’. It produces shining, golden flowers with jet-black cones from early September to late October and into November. It has slightly smaller flowers, but they are lovely, and abundant. Rudbeckias naturally grow in dry savannahs, grassland prairies and in the glades of rocky upland forests across North America but they have become a much-loved bushy stalwart of the herbaceous border and will delight from late summer right through the autumn. Happy gardening.

THE WOMEN OF WIMBLEDON Home-grown champions from the past The Championships, Wimbledon is the most famous tennis event in the British sporting calendar. It was first contested in 1877 and played on outdoor grass courts at the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club (AELTC) in the Wimbledon suburb of London, United Kingdom. The Ladies' Singles tournament began in 1884, and the women's game has developed massively over the last century. We are all familiar with the incredible Williams sisters, but our own Nation has a pretty impressive history in the Women's singles, which is often overlooked by the British media. Dorothy Round Little won her first title in 1934 — the same year as her British male counterpart Fred Perry also won his first. She won her second Wimbledon title at age 29 in 1937. A devout Christian, she often refused to play on Sundays. She published two books, Modern Lawn Tennis and Tennis For Girls. After her retirement in 1939 she worked as a coach, journalist, and president of the Worcester Lawn Tennis Club. Florence Angela Margaret Mortimer Barrett beat another English player Christine Truman Janes to become Wimbledon's women's singles champion in 1961. She was aged 29 and partially deaf. Ann Haydon-Jones had already won the French Open and U.S. Open twice before winning Wimbledon in 1969. She first showed her talent as a young girl. Her father was a table tennis champion and he encouraged her competitive spirit. She played the famous Billie Jean King several times but never beat her until her win at Wimbledon. Haydon-Jones was also the first

left-handed female singles player to win the championship. Virginia Wade was a maths graduate, famed for her powerful serve. She defeated Billie Jean King at the US Open, earning her first Grand Slam title. She went on to win the Australian Open in 1972, and in 1977, nearly a decade after her first victory, Wade would become Wimbledon's last British singles winner for 36 years. The year she won, defeating Dutch player Betty Stöve at Wimbledon was the Queen's Silver Jubilee and Queen Elizabeth II herself was present to enjoy her victory. It remains to be seen whether current British number one Johanna Konta can better her semi-final performance in 2017 to add her name to the list of amazing female British tennis players who have held the Wimbledon trophy aloft.

POOL POWER! Kids love to splash in a pool on a hot summer’s day. If you are thinking of buying one, we have some top tips. Inflatable pools - These are easily inflated so can be up and filled as soon as the sunshine appears. Smaller inflatable pools are ideal for toddlers and can be inflated by one person with a good set of lungs, but larger pools can accommodate the whole family - you will probably prefer to inflate these with a pump! Quick up pools - These are super-easy to set up. Spread the pool out and inflate the top ring. The design of the pool means that as you fill it with water the sides of the pool will rise up. These are particularly good if storage space is tight.

Frame pools - Sturdier pools with a bigger bathing area. Frame pools are ideal for larger families and groups of teens. Look for rust-resistant galvanised metal frames; heavy-duty PVC and polyester 3-ply walls; beams and joints that pin or snap together for fast, easy construction. A filter pump to keep the water clean, and a repair patch kit to mend small tears or punctures. Site your pool on a level surface, with plenty of room to make it easy and safe to get in and out. Remember, toddlers and young children should be supervised at all times.
