Frost Alert! by Sharon Longshaw November is the month when we in South East Essex have a chance of experiencing the first frosts of the autumn/winter season so now is the time to move those tender plants in to the greenhouse if you haven’t already done so. Many of us now have exotics like Palms and Banana plants, as these cannot be moved I wrap mine in straw and an old duvet cover that I ripped up, it’s important to protect them while still allowing them to breath so please don’t use plastic. A covering of leaves on plant borders and your lawn creates dark, damp conditions which create the perfect environment for many slugs, snails and fungal diseases, so you need to rake them away! If not, this can be damaging to your lawn and plants.You can even use the leaves to create leaf mould which is ideal for top dressing plants. However, please be aware that rose leaves can carry disease and evergreen leaves will take far too long to rot down so these are not ideal. Old newspapers, kitchen waste and garden rubbish can be put on the compost heap for use next year. If you haven’t turned you compost heap recently this is a job that can keep you warm on a

cold day.Turning the heap will allow all the compost to have access to air which will help it rot down during the winter creating wonderful soil improver for your garden. There is nothing more satisfying than growing your own fruit! November is the ideal time to plant new fruit bushes and create your own fruit garden.To get the most out of your fruit bushes, use plenty of well-rotted compost and slow release fertilizer when you plant such as Bonemeal. Evergreen shrubs are ideal for adding colour to your garden during the winter.There are also many plants which produce fruit and flowers during the winter too such as Skimmia and Witch Hazel.When planting, use a slow release fertilizer such as blood fish and bone, to ensure that you don’t promote too much new soft growth during the winter. Brighten up your garden for the winter with the use of winter bedding plants such as winter flowering pansies, heathers and small evergreen shrubs.

Drinking Water Really is the Key to Weight Loss Don’t roll your eyes!

If you eat and exercise right but still can’t get rid of a little lump and bump here and there you’re probably just not drinking enough water. Most people don’t drink enough water and most people are also carrying around a few more pounds than they would be if they did drink enough water. This is why: Metabolism. People use this word all the time, but ask them what it means and you’ll get all kinds of answers. Here’s one definition: “The process by which a substance is handled in the body.” Sounds vague? But that’s really all it means. There are many forms of metabolism going on in your body right now but the one everyone is talking about it the metabolism of fat. This is actually something that the liver does when it converts stored fat to energy - excellent! Unfortunately, another of the liver’s duties is to pick up the slack for the kidneys, which need plenty of water to work properly. If the kidneys are water deprived the liver has to do their work along with its own, lowering its productivity meaning it can’t metabolise fat as quickly or efficiently as it could when the kidneys were pulling their own weight. If you allow this to happen, not only are you being unfair to your liver, but you’re also setting yourself up to store fat - not so good.

“I’ve tried water and I couldn’t stand it!” The problem is, though many decide to increase their water intake, very few stick with it. During the first few days of drinking more water than your body is used to, you’re running to the toilet constantly! This can be very discouraging and can interfere with an otherwise normal day at work! It seems that the water is coming out just as fast as it’s going in, and many people decide that their new hydration habit is pointless. What is really happening is your body is flushing itself of the water it has been storing throughout all those years of “survival mode”. It takes a while, but as you continue to give your body all the water it could ask for, it gets rid of what it doesn’t need. It gets rid of the water it was holding onto in your ankles, hips and thighs, maybe even around your belly – yippee! Your body figures it doesn’t need to save these stores anymore; it’s trusting that the water will keep coming, and if it does, eventually the flushing (of both the body and the toilet) will stop, allowing you to return to a normal life. This is called the “breakthrough point” Water will do wonders for your looks! It flushes out impurities in your skin, leaving you with a clear, glowing complexion. It also makes your skin look younger. Skin that’s becoming saggy, either due to

aging or weight loss, plumps up very nicely when the skin cells are hydrated – yippee! Also, water improves muscle tone. You can exercise until you’re blue in the face but if your muscles are suffering from a drought, you won’t notice a pleasant difference in your appearance. Muscles that have all the water they need contract more easily making your workout more effective and you’ll look much nicer than if you had flabby muscles under sagging skin! We are all told ‘8 glasses / 2 litres a day’ but you should up this to around three litres if you are exercising. Spread your water consumption out throughout the day; it’s not healthy to drink too much water at one time. Pick 3 or 4 times a day when you can have a big glass of water and then sip in between. Don’t let yourself get thirsty; if you feel thirsty you’re already dehydrated. Drink when you’re not thirsty yet. When you drink all the water your body needs, you will very quickly notice a decrease in your appetite, possibly even on the first day! If you're serious about becoming leaner and healthier drinking water is an absolute must. If you're doing everything else right and still not seeing results, this might just be the missing link!

The Indee Rose Trust is a charitable trust founded in July 2009. Our aim is to help children and their families who have been diagnosed with a brain or spinal tumor. We provide Treasure Boxes to children who have been hospitalized whilst receiving treatment for a brain or spinal tumor. A wonderful box of treats created especially for the child made to suit each child's personal interests with toys, games, books and cds. We will also provide a one off grant to help support the family at this difficult time. The grant is only given once the child has received their treasure box and with approval from the trustees of The Indee Rose Trust. We are a normal family who have felt the effects of a child brain tumor first hand.

Our daughter Indee Rose was diagnosed with a brain tumor at three years old. We know that it not only effects the child and the immediate family but everyone extended family, friends and the local community. We Offer: Treasure Boxes, One Off Grants, Holiday Accomodation & Support when you need it!

Get Involved Each year Great Ormond Street Hospital are contacted by approximately 400 children with brain and spinal tumors - roughly one child each day! We aim to help every child we can with the best presents we can, and to do this we need to raise approx £200,000 a year to give each child a treasure box and provide our grants and holiday accommodation.

Brain tumors are the biggest cancer killer of our children in our country, yet for some reason it only receives approximately 1% of the funding available from the government.

Can you or your company help? At the Indee Rose Trust we are always looking for ways to raise awareness and organise events to raise money for our charity. If you would like to help but cannot make it to one of our fundraising events there are plenty of ways you can help.

• Make a donation • Sponsor a treasure box for £250 • Sponsor a family grant for £200 • Sponsor a family holiday for £500 • Pay £1 to dress up or down for work • Hold a quiz / race night / themed party

Canvey Rotary Club The Rotary Year flashes by because our calendar of service is quite relentless, just as one big project concludes preparations are already underway for the next. This month we have seen the conclusion of our financial support for Hannah & Megan, two young ladies who spent time volunteering in Kenya and then gave an impressive presentation back to Rotarians and our guests at specially organised meeting.Youngsters within our Society are often criticised for their ‘couldn’t care less attitude’, but the girls proved themselves excellent ambassadors for both Canvey Rotary and the Furtherwick Park Legacy Fund. We attended the Canvey ATC Squadron Mess night at the Oysterfleet and presented an award to one of the cadets. Our Club is proud that our fundraising helps such an Organisation, the commanding officers instil respect and

diligence into their cadets and are another fine example of good youngsters on Canvey Island. I was also delighted to visit Canvey Island Rugby Club to meet youngsters who have benefitted from the £1000 Furtherwick Park Legacy fund donation for new equipment. The United Kingdom has seen a quite spectacular Summer of competition so it was fitting that we were able to support a Sports Club in this way. We have a busy end of the year with the launch of our Christmas Sleigh collection with our first engagement of the festive season being the turning on of the Canvey Christmas Lights. Thank you for your continued support and further details of our work within the community can be found at www.facebook.com/canveyrotary

Canvey Island Town Council

Canvey Island Town Council - Community Warden For those of you who don’t know me, my name is Jess Fisher and I am employed by Canvey Island Town Council as a Community Warden. I retired from Essex Police a few years ago after thirty years’ service. I have held my position as Community Warden for one year now. My position involves me with the community and I spend a lot of time on the streets keeping my eyes peeled. I report any findings to the relevant authorities and speak regularly with Castle Point Borough Council, Essex County Council, Environment Agency and the RSPCA to name just a few. Over the past year I have organised several litter picks at various locations and have given talks in schools relating to the effects of litter on our environment. I am constantly campaigning to high light dog fouling and the law and in partnership with Castle Point Borough Council we have set up displays and organised joint patrols. At the moment Canvey Island Town Council is looking for a figurehead for the forthcoming year to promote their dog fouling campaign. To apply, send photo with your dog and yourself and let us know if your dog could write, what would they say about you as a responsible owner? The entries are to be returned to the Town Council office by latest 1st December. The Chairman of the Council will whittle down the entries to the remaining five and these will be displayed the

Town Council office. Members of the public will then be invited to vote for the winner. Remember being a responsible owner is not just about picking up after your dog. I visit various clubs on the Island to allow a person to air problems and difficulties that they may have and try to look into them for them, if I don’t know the answer I usually know someone who does. You will regularly see me walking around the lake as the Town Council is responsible for this area, and problems often arise which are not expected. I am open to any ideas that the public have which the Town Council could be involved with, and will always attend where possible to give talks etc. on my role, litter etc.
