Dear Readers With new life emerging everywhere around us this month let’s take as much pleasure as we can from the Spring weather and realise how lucky we are in this corner of the globe - especially given the recent dramatic events in Japan. As we can only have an effect in a localised way to change the way we live for the better, and if you’re thinking of updating things at home, perhaps consider looking at the Surrey Reuse Network where you could find hidden treasures at a remarkably low price! We have more from Surrey Waste Partnership on Page 5. If you have some spare time and would like to lend a hand locally, Hatchlands Park really need your help and have asked for volunteers to give talks, show visitors around and talk about the history of Hatchlands and help with on-going events. If you have a budding musician in the family why not take them along to the splendid new event “Open Mic” on Sunday 10th April which showcases local children’s talents - the next event is also in aid of Surrey Air Ambulance, who we really do want to raise as much for as possible this year. Tickets are very reasonably priced so do go along to West Horsley Village Hall and support this great local event. All the details are on Pages 32 & 33. There is so much going on in April and May with Easter hols, the royal wedding and lots of days off! Enjoy it all.

Looking for quality and quantity? Give your house an affordable makeover Did you know?

There’s an estimated 3,000 tonnes of reusable furniture and white goods that end up in Surrey landfill?

When you’re buying new furniture and products for your home, have you ever thought about visiting a reuse organisation? Buying reusable furniture and kitchen appliances is great value, good for the environment and you might just find a hidden treasure. The Surrey Reuse Network offers a wide range of good quality items at affordable prices. Made up of a group of six charities, the network aims to find new homes for donated furniture and kitchen appliances, as well as offering training and employment opportunities and helping local families in need.

Why donate my unwanted furniture? Find a new home for those items you no longer want or need:

It’s easy – a simple phone call is all it takes to donate. A member of our friendly team will arrange for collection or you can drop it off if easier Convenient – you will be given a 2 hour collection slot to fit in with when you’ll be at home.

Help on hand – staff from the reuse charities will help take the items out of your home, particularly helpful if you’re elderly or disabled.

Why buy from a local reuse showroom?

Low cost – it will almost always be cheaper to have the items collected and taken away by a reuse charity than any other alternative.

You’ll find everything you need to make a house a home:

Community benefit – your donation will help raise funds for the community work the charities carry out, helping families in need and enabling people to get back into work.

Fantastic savings – whether you buy a modern piece of flat pack furniture or a 100-yearold solid wood piece, you’ll be getting a bargain. Excellent choice – new items come into the showrooms all the time so there is always a wide range to choose from.

Great quality – whether modern or old the items for sale are checked for quality and safety. Hidden treasures

- one off pieces regularly feature and can add a unique sense of style to your home.

Good cause – buying from the network enables the community support it provides, helping families in need and enabling people to get back into work.

Green savings – buying reusable items saves them from going to landfill, which is both financially and environmentally costly.

Did you know?

You could pick up antique style armchairs for £60, a 4-piece table and chairs for £70, a sideboard for £30 and a tall lamp for just £5.

To find your nearest reuse showroom call 0800 082 0180 or visit www.surreyreusenetwork.org.uk

Beauty Tips

Colour Me Cool How often have you matched your eye shadow with your outfit, only to realise that the colours which suit you perfectly in clothes, don’t necessarily work on your eyes? We each have our own unique eye shadow palette. The suggestions below are a good starting point to find your perfect colour combination.

Blue

Blue eyes look good using grey, violet, taupe or purple. For a more vibrant look, use a deep shade of blue. A dramatic evening effect can be created by adding silver, fuchsia or turquoise. If your hair is blonde, then violet and lavender are the colours for you, but a combination of red hair and blue eyes calls for brown shades – with a gold shimmer to enhance evening make up.

Green

Green eyes on redheaded women with pale skin should suit brownish pinks and purple shades, while those with darker skin can go for dark bronze and greens.

Good base colours for both skin tones include cream, mocha, taupe, peach, apricot, coral, soft purple and light green.

Brown

A shimmering cream, eggshell, champagne or apricot covering the entire eyelid gives the perfect base to bring brown eyes to life. Use dark brown or plum in the crease as a contrasting shade and to add depth.

Hazel

Women with hazel eyes have the best of all worlds, as their eyes can be made up to look classic, romantic or sexy using a full colour palette. They are able to mix and match – and will find most colours flattering.

Up Close and Personal Local businesses were given a guided tour of the Surrey Air Ambulance and met its life-saving crew at the helicopter base in a drive to raise awareness and funds. Representatives from Business Networking International (BNI) were among the guests at an Up Close and Personal event at Dunsfold Park last week (February 22). Supporters of the charity learned about the advanced medical procedures that can be carried out by the specialist doctor and Critical Care Paramedic on board. Chief Executive Adrian Bell told them: “It’s always good to let people know who we are, what we do and how we do it. We often suffer from the problem that people are not aware that we are a charity and that we don’t get any statutory funding from government. What we bring to an incident is, in effect, an A&E department in the form of the doctor and critical care paramedic enabled by the helicopter’s speed and agility. Yes, we save lives but quality of survival is key to what we do as well because if we can get the team to the scene directly and intervene early we can make a big difference to the nature and speed of a patient’s recovery.” It costs £1.7m-a-year to keep the Surrey Air Ambulance flying and the service relies almost entirely on voluntary donations including corporate sponsorship.

Local businesses, groups and organisations are currently needed to sponsor events such as the first-ever Double 100 Bike Challenge on July 3rd and Dragonboat Racing on September 17 and 18. Nearly 40 visitors attended the Up Close and Personal event where Dr John O’Neill and paramedic Mick Carter explained how they could carry out anaesthetics, chest surgery, intubation, sedation and pain relief. The helicopter currently flies during daylight hours but the eventual aim is to provide a 24-hour service after permission for trials of night flying was granted by Waverley Borough Council. Chief Executive Adrian Bell said: “We plan to operate by night and that is quite a significant challenge because operating a helicopter by day is relatively easy. If you then turn the lights out and think of the sort of places where it has to land it gets a little bit harder. But there is a significant number of incidents that we don’t get to because of night time and we think we should be working to achieve that. It will take a long time but we have plans in hand to roll it out over the next three to five years because it takes that long to expand the service in that nature.”

If you would like to make a donation to the Air Ambulance please call 01622 833833. Alternatively cheques can be made payable to Surrey Air Ambulance and posted to Wheelbarrow Park Estate, Pattenden Lane, Marden, Kent, TN12 9QJ

Grace & Flavour, the community vegetable-growing co-operative at Dene Place, Ripley Lane I have to admit that I am something of a gardening novice, even now after a year working in the Grace & Flavour garden. One of things I most appreciate about this community kitchen garden project is the opportunity to learn as I go. Just last weekend another member taught me how to tell an apple sapling from a pear, and I know from other members that they too love the teaching and learning that is part of every day spent at G&F. It’s one of the things that prompts people to join. What I did not expect to learn about was aggregates and geotextiles but I have! Grace & Flavour members are just nearing the completion of a car park. We secured Surrey Hills Leader Funding in January after hitting a last minute delay with the lease in December 2010. The funding was enough to cover 85% of the cost of materials for the car park but conditional on completion of the project by the end of March, so it has been a case of all hands to the wheelbarrow. The level of physical work required has been quite something to see, and the numbers of members pitching up to help on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays has been very encouraging. Once the car park is complete we will be able to gain access far more easily to the garden from Ripley Lane. The path to the community garden will be more easily navigable on foot or by wheelchair too – something we have all been aiming for since we started. The long-awaited allotments will also soon be available, bringing even more people on to the site. So with better access complete we can turn our thoughts back to planting. The garden is looking in good shape. Many of the potatoes are already in, others are in egg boxes at members’ homes being ‘chitted’. The onions and garlic look very healthy and we have had seed deliveries from both Tozer Direct and organic seed specialist Tamar. Support from Tozer, a local seed company of international repute has made such a difference to the viability of G&F – a stroke of luck to have such a wonderful resource on our doorstep. One of the benefits of having Tozer as a supporter is that we can grow varieties that the G&F gardeners have always wanted to try, not just those that we know people will buy. So if you want to learn more about vegetable gardening and have some spare hours every once in a while, come along and have a look – you will be very welcome.

Planning for your ‘wants’ as well as your needs Lifestyle planning can mean many different things, but most often it refers to a complete re-appraisal of your personal and financial position coming up to retirement. Lifestyle planning can be useful at any stage of life, especially when there are changes such as career moves, marriage, house purchase or children. The changes at retirement are so great that this is the time of life when it is most useful. Why plan? Well, there is an old adage: ‘He who fails to plan plans to fail’. Most of us do things, both personally and financially, just because they have become a habit. This can be very helpful if circumstances are the same as it saves effort. However, when circumstances do change, these habits need reviewing and perhaps new ones need to be started. Lifestyle planning involves standing back and working out what you actually want – what are your objectives (both your personal objectives and your financial ones) and your views? Then you need to look at where you are (this certainly includes a financial summary). Next, estimating your finances for future years is essential to assess your likely position and help you plan. The last stage, of course, is making the changes.

The review when approaching retirement is probably the greatest. Clearly, income is about to change radically, both in type and in size. For many people there will be a lump sum to be invested, and all other investments should be reviewed – in general most people should reduce the risk level of their investments as there will no longer be the chance of replacing anything that is lost. There is also a huge change in the way you live and it is a good time to re-consider your home, your car, your holidays, etc. Fitting all this into one plan will take time, and is often best done in several goes as your views will change as you consider the plan. Often, it can help to sit down with a professional outsider who can help you take a more detached view and re-think some of those habits. If we can help, please contact Keith Hardy on 01843 225457 or email keith@smithpearman.com. Your plan will also need to change as your views and circumstances change and as the world changes, but the process of making the plan will put you in a position to adjust it to reflect the changes.

Working from home Larry No-Mates by Ted Bruning

I

t feels like a long time since I had any colleagues. Well, it’s four-and-a-half years, to be precise; so yes, it is quite a long time since I had any colleagues. But is that a good thing or a bad thing? I have always maintained – and it’s not a particularly original thought – that the pleasure you derive from your job really derives from those you work with. Whatever you do, from the ludicrously cushy to the back-breakingly hard (but barring the wilder extremes – I’m not talking rock-breaking in Siberia here), you soon start to take it for granted. I’ve been a journalist for many years, and the work has always been interesting with a fair few perks, mainly in the form of subsidised travel and lavish dinners thrown in. Not so much now as when I was in the brewing trade press; but I still get the odd trip hither and yon and a few days in Brittany or Belgium now and again do relieve the monotony. It’s work, and that’s that. You come to take money for granted, too, whether you’re just making ends meet like me or raking in obscene piles of moolah like, say, a banker (boo hiss!). But rich or poor (or poor-ish, at any rate), people in my experience tend to structure their lives according to their expectations and once they’ve settled into a means-related pattern, and always assuming a modicum of security, money becomes a secondary issue. Colleagues, to me, are the one thing you can’t take for granted. Some of them you’ll hate. Some of them you’ll love. (Taking either of these to extremes, however, is not advisable!) Some of them you’ll gladly share a few bevvies and a good gossip with down the pub after work. Some of them, on the other hand – you only have to glimpse them in the office boozer and you’re heading straight for the bus stop. Of course if you have no colleagues, you have no irritants. The one with the irritating laugh. The one with the irritating cough or sneeze. The one with the irritating opinions. You have

no enemies, either: Louise from marketing isn’t constantly cosying up to the boss and plotting to subjugate your department to hers. And, of course, you have no meetings. But you don’t get the good ones, either. Not just the after-work pint buddy, but the bloke who knows all about cars and advises you authoritatively against buying a five-year-old Kia. The one who knows just how you like your coffee. The one who’s recovered from the cold you’ve just caught and can tell you exactly how long it’s likely to last and what remedy he/she found particularly efficacious. The one whose wedding you went to, and who came to yours. No, on balance colleagues are a good thing. Even the ones you loathe serve to make your day less grey. If you’ve got them, if you’re still office-bound and haven’t yet experienced the glorious freedom that comes with working from home, cherish them. Forgive them their trespasses (within reason, that is). And if you don’t have them, if you’ve taken that leap into the working-from-home dark, join something. Whether it’s the Communist Party or the local amateur operatic society or (as in my case) the Rose & Crown Supporters’ Club, it’s a great comfort to know that when you’ve turned the computer off and had your tea, you have your ration of human contact to look forward to. Because if you don’t have colleagues, you can always have friends...

The Power of Networking

H

undreds of people get up at the crack of dawn in the morning to do it, others wait until lunchtime while yet more people do it in the evening or online. What is it? Networking. From business breakfasts to wine bar soirées, people all over the country are networking together, making new contacts and expanding the contents of their address books. You’ll know a great networker when you meet one. They are the first people to shout “I do!” when they overhear someone asking “does anyone know of a good plumber?”, or asking for a great painter and decorator or a good restaurant to take their elderly parents to. Good networkers listen and they learn, making a mental note of people who they like and who they would like to stay in touch with. They are the Cilla Blacks of the business world, connecting people who may be able to help each other or who they think may have a common interest or bond. From plumbers to printers, solicitors to accountants good networking benefits people in every sector and in every size of company. Done effectively it’s not just about randomly passing out your business cards, rather it’s about face to face contact, about actively listening and about asking the right questions about another person’s business. Effective networking offers you exposure to people from all walks of life, to all sorts of businesses and it gets your name out into the business community. Organised networking groups exist all over the country and offer their members benefits on many levels. Going along to visit a group can be a great way for people to dip their toes in the water of meeting and greeting new people. Existing members will usually watch out for new faces and step in to help anyone who is standing by themselves with introductions to other members of the group. Networking doesn’t come naturally to some people and a structured environment can help with any first time nerves. For home based businesses the opportunity to get out of the office once a week and meet with other people can be a source of huge support; for others membership can offer a co-operative where the other members act almost like a larger

company behind each individual member. Sole traders and self employed members especially can call upon the services of the members of their groups and find themselves with, for example, a design department, an accounts department, an IT department and a marketing department whose work they understand and trust because they meet the same people each week. Highly successful and lucrative groups tend to work very well when members from particular sectors join and work together, for example when a printer passes work to a designer, a builder to a plumber, decorator and carpet fitter. In recent years networking has moved beyond the breakfast table or the wine bar to the online world with sites like LinkedIn and Twitter spreading the word of individual businesses far beyond the confines of town and county. The basis of this virtual networking is based upon the same principles as face-to-face meetings: it’s about finding people with whom you have things in common, about shared interests or bonds and adding them to your network of contacts. Networking - it’s not what you know, but who.

Junior Open Mic

Karine Millington started the Charity Junior Open Mic at West Horsley Village Hall in January. Her idea was to have a venue where youngsters could perform, sing or play an instrument, in order to entertain a family friendly audience. She set the tickets at a very reasonable price of – £10 for Adults and £5 for children and this includes a two course supper. Although her idea was also to raise money for charity, she really wanted local families to be able to afford to come and support the amazing young talent she knew was available locally. At her January event, she managed to raise £225 for Cancer Research and £300 for Creche de Tangier in February – an Orphanage in Morocco which a group of Surrey youngsters are going to visit with the Voice in a Million Singing Academy. Both evenings were sold out and a large audience of 100 were entertained by an amazing selection of musicians, including a 7 year old on keyboards, a couple of 8 year old Saxophonists, a 13 year old guitarist and ukulele player who wrote his own song, a band of 13 year olds and lots of singers aged between 8 -16 years of age - some of whom sang solos and some duets. Karine said that the feedback they received was absolutely amazing...'Better than X Factor' was a remark heard on several occasions! The next Open Mike event will be on Sunday 10th April to raise money for The Horsley Directory’s Charity of the Year 2011 - Surrey Air Ambulance. If you would like to buy some tickets or to book a performance slot, please contact Karine Millington on 01483 284744 / 07710 257779 or email Karine on: millingtonke@btinternet

Outside Play to Engage the Inner Child Most adults were brought up with the idea that children need a good blast of fresh air outside (come rain or shine, with the latter bringing vital Vitamin D) for health and general well-being. But is this just an urban myth? Young children need space to run, explore, create and make a noise that is perhaps considered inappropriate inside. Early years educational establishments offering extensive purpose-built play areas plus spacious grounds can offer children the best of both worlds. Staff at Bright Stars schedule a significant amount of activity outside be it exploring the fenced play area with its slides, structures and steps or taking children into the spacious playing fields and grounds. All these activities could be judged as being just ‘play’. However, they are carefully planned and include the six areas of the curriculum with intended learning goals aimed at each individual child’s development. Young children need time outside that is not too structured or adult-led and that an outdoor environment can encourage all sorts of creative and motor skill development. Physical play uses climbing equipment, tricycles and large grassy areas; constructive play works through mediums such as blocks, sand, water, art; social play develops skills vital for later life; socio-dramatic play allows children to impose their own meaning and adult-led games often need space for best advantage. Learning about the world takes on a new aspect… does a stick stand up best in sand or mud? What gives shade from the sun and do clouds mean it’s more likely to rain? It’s so much more fun and stimulating to learn these things outside where it’s easier to see how the natural world and wider environment fit together. For adults, outdoor exercise brings feelings of energy and revitalisation and decreases tension and anger; and it’s no different for nursery-age children. Just look at the difference in children who’ve been ‘cooped up’ indoors followed by time in the sandpit and games on the playing fields. The invigorating effect of experiences that are different from classroom-based learning must not be underestimated; and their overall role in children’s health is key. Safe space to fulfill basic childhood needs - from jumping to hiding and making a big mess - is key to a successful nursery education. And a successful stimulating nursery education engendering a love of learning unlocks the next stage of development. So, a nursery such as Bright Stars will enable little children just to be children. They will still learn and develop but most importantly reach their potential in a happy, safe and nurturing environment. Every experience counts and nursery education should be well-rounded, stimulating and secure. The natural world is all around us so let’s get our children out there to have fun and learn along the way.

Bright Stars at Cranmore Term-time or year-round nursery education from 2½ years with extended hours care available. • Purpose-built outdoor play area • 24 acres of private grounds including playing fields.

Books To Raise A Smile April Fool’s day: a time for practical jokes and having a laugh at the expense of others. Luckily, there’s no need with our top ten humorous books - great for giving and guaranteed to tickle the funny bone (no itching powder or whoopee cushions required). The Life of Fly by Magnus Muhr You may think that the life of a fly must be fairly dull, buzzing around and getting swatted all the time, but Swedish photographer Magnus Muhr has shown the world otherwise. This collection captures what they really get up to: from sunbathing and sports to performing their own version of Riverdance. Simon’s Cat by Simon Tofield For anyone who has a cat, Simon Tofield’s animations, based upon a mischievous cat’s antics pre-meal time, are hugely funny. From screen to page, nothing is lost in this collection of comic strip drawings, which will have feline fans everywhere grinning from ear to ear. F In Exams: The Best Test Paper Blunders by Richard Benson The clock is ticking and you haven’t got a clue what the right answer is. Either that, or you fancy blagging an A* with your hilarious wit. Here is a collection of wrong (but very amusing) answers taken from test papers on a number of subjects.

A Simples Life: The Life and Times of Alexandr Orlov by Aleksandr Orlov Herein lies the history of the nation’s favourite meerkat. From escaping the Kalahari desert and enduring a war with Mongis Khan, we learn of how Aleksandr and his family made their name by finding ‘cheep insuranz deels’ for the people of Great Britain. Fully illustrated and hugely entertaining for any Compare the Meerkat fan. The Tommy Cooper Joke Book compiled by John Fisher Crammed full of tricks, one-liners, jokes and wit from the great comic, this book is a delightful and fun collection. Recounting the time Tommy’s friend drowned in a bowl of muesli (due to a particularly strong currant) and culinary advice such as how to prevent rice from sticking (cook each grain separately), this title is sure to have its readers in stitches. The Book of Bunny Suicides by Andy Riley It’s a hard life being a rabbit, and the long, dark days result in a great many taking their own lives. Always keen to come up with a more memorable way to end it all than their hundreds of siblings, here we see the methods favoured by the likes of Flopsy and Peter. Have tissues at the ready. 1000 Unforgettable Senior Moments by Tom Friedman Don’t be put off by the fact that the author only managed to remember 246, you still get value for money with this hilarious collection of anecdotes, from when Jimmy Carter left the codes he needed to launch a nuclear missile strike in his suit jacket pocket (at the dry cleaners) to the time Emerson forgot Henry Wadsworth Longfellow’s name (at Longfellow’s funeral). It’s nice to know you’re not the only one, isn’t it? NEW RELEASE 101 Things to Do Before You’re Five by Sally Norton Out now in paperback, this hilarious book captures all those disgusting and awful things we do when we’re small. A great gift for new parents, and indeed anyone who was ever young and stupid enough to share the dog’s dinner.

Colour Confidence Katherine Sorrell

T

his season’s most fashionable colours for interiors are strong and bold: daring blacks and metallics, vivid citruses and a range of sorbet-like Fifties shades. Yet colour can be complicated: stray away from safe neutrals and who hasn’t ended up in a fog of indecision? Our guide to using colour will help you avoid clashes and select the shades that work best for you. Colour is a hugely dynamic tool, affecting the way we feel in a powerful, albeit often subconscious, way. And we each have our own feelings about colour, so that one person’s warm and intimate room is another’s nightmare of brash, clashing shades. All of which makes using colour a rather daunting undertaking. But never fear: there are some simple guidelines to follow. Painting a room a new colour is a quick, easy and inexpensive way to introduce a fresh look. If you’re not sure where to start, there’s a wealth of inspiration to be found in books or magazines, and the paint manufacturers themselves can be a great help, whether in the form of brochures showing their colours in action, a website with the facility to paint a virtual room or colour cards that demonstrate which colours work best together. If you’re wary of using too many different colours, but would nevertheless like to introduce some contrasts, a good rule of thumb is that darker and lighter shades of the same colour are always good together (simply look vertically up and down the paint charts). So far so good. Then, to narrow your choices down, you’ll want to consider the colours of your existing furnishings, the practicalities of how you live (darkish colours are useful in a busy hallway which might suffer from knocks and mud splatters, for example) and the architecture of your property. The latter informs not just the suitability of certain colours – perhaps historic colours for older properties, for example – but also their shades, as you may be able to get away with bolder and/or darker colours in large and light rooms. Another consideration is where to put which paint colours. Bear in mind that hallways, stairways and landings are linking areas; when you stand in 42

them you may be able to see a number of different rooms, so you should consider how their colours will work together. As a general guideline, restful colours, such as pale blues, lilacs and pinks, often work well in bedrooms, and bolder shades in dining rooms: red is a classic choice, in particular. In a hallway you could make a strong statement with a vibrant colour that introduces the house to visitors, or opt for something paler that will maximise the sense of space. Conventional colours for bathrooms are watery blues and greens, but there’s no reason why you shouldn’t opt for something completely different. Colours for living rooms should generally be chosen to work around the existing furnishings – you might pick a colour from a favourite cushion, vase or painting, for example; and the same goes for kitchens, where you’ll already have cabinets and worktops that will dominate a scheme. Finally, in children’s bedrooms and playrooms you’ll probably want to use a mix of fun, bright colours that are lively and stimulating. Experimenting with paint colour is essential, as it can be difficult to get it right first time. Always paint sheets of white card with your chosen samples and tape them up around a room, to observe in different lights (what looks like a

Gardening: May by Pippa Greenwood

I

t’s great to be joining you on a regular basis, especially when the subject is gardening! I’ll be giving you some hints and tips for what to be doing in your own gardens, letting you know what I’m up to in mine, and in the process hopefully inspiring you to get out in to the garden more, enjoy everything it has to offer, and achieve some pretty impressive results yourself. Welcome to May, one of the fastest moving months in the gardening year. May is the month when plants just keep on and on growing and developing. New transplants, recently allowed to enjoy the ‘great outdoors’ after an early start in a greenhouse, wait a week or two and then POW! they’re off, and showing you their potential. Old established garden friends, their roots well down in the soil, put on new leaves, stem growth, flower buds maybe even flowers and enjoy the fact that whilst the weather has warmed up, they’ve not yet been hit by growth-restricting drier conditions of summer. It’s a month when it is hard not to feel a regular desire to grab a trowel (or perhaps a fork, spade or cultivator) and get out there and enjoy yourself while at the same time giving the garden and its plants the TLC that’s deserved. What better way to spend an hour or two….or perhaps even a day or two?

salad leaves, spinach or peas. I also adore home grown sweetcorn; this too can be sown direct now, but make sure you sow the seed in a square e.g. four rows of four seeds, formed in to a square (it is a wind pollinated crop and this is the way to get good, well-filled cobs). It is a bit late to raise your own courgettes, squash, tomatoes or peppers from seed, but there should be plenty of young plants available in local nurseries or garden centres – just make sure you buy a variety of tomato or pepper suitable for growing outdoors if you don’t have a greenhouse (the label should make this clear). It is worth spending a few minutes to check flower beds and borders, however small or large, as at this time of year they are a hive of activity. I just have masses of twiggy peasticks (well branched prunings will do) and have driven them in around the edges of several herbaceous perennials. So many of these lovely plants are inclined to flop disastrously later in the year, but supported subtly now, they’ll remain upright. As I do this I always spot a few other things that need seeing to as well. All the lovely lush growth means that (in my garden at least) slugs and snails are having a fantastic time devastating the tender new leaves. When I put new plants in the ground I scatter oyster shell around the soil beneath the plants. It is readily available from local suppliers of chicken feed, and is by far the best barrier to slugs and snails that I know....and bought in this way, it does not cost a fortune either.

With the massive surge in interest in growing your own vegetables, vegetable plants and seeds are available just about everywhere, so there are no excuses for not giving it a go. Even if time is short or space at a premium, it really is worth growing a few crops – the feeling of selfsatisfaction when you make that first harvest is just SO good....not to mention the taste of the crops themselves. At this time of year you can sow seeds of many vegetables direct into the soil or large pots of multi-purpose compost. Try your hand at climbing French beans, dwarf French beans, runner beans, carrots, 48

Gardening: May continued...

Early aphid (greenfly and blackfly) infestations are also likely to be building up now, and dealt with promptly they are unlikely to cause too much damage – a gentle but firm squash between finger and thumb works a treat, or for those less partial to direct action like this, spray with a fatty-acid or soap-based spray late in the day when bees are no longer about. With most of the gardening year ahead feeding makes sense too. So whether you have a wellstocked compost heap, or prefer to use fertilisers from the garden centre, apply them now so that your flowers, fruits and veg have a chance to make best use of them. Golden Rules: • Make sure that seedlings and young plants get enough natural light. • Gradually harden off young plants before planting them out. • In warmer areas, start to plant out more

tender crops, but protect with cloches at first. • Tomatoes in containers need regular feeding with a liquid tomato food. • Treat yourself to some summer bedding for a really lively terrace-container, but check the forecast carefully before planting them out.

Five Big

Cool French Cars

here’s something about big French cars that’s rather cool. They’re not usually huge sales hits in the UK, but a combination of quirky styling and laid back comfort make them attractive buys. There are some things you’ll have to put up with though: Some have residual values that lose money faster than Greece, reliability can be slightly disappointing and some people will laugh at you. But not us – we’ll salute you as you waft by with a whiff of diesel, floating along on a bed of air suspension. Here, we pick our five favourites. Citroen DS Big French cars don’t get more iconic than the incredible DS. Citroen sold nearly 1.5m of them during its 20-year production run between 1955 and 1975. It was packed with futuristic technology such as selfleveling suspension and directional headlights, but it’s those stylish looks that make it really cool. A decent DS will cost you around £30k now. Renault Vel Satis The Vel Satis was an undeniable sales flop – even Renault’s top brass admit it (http://aol. it/eUQ9mt) – but that, in our eyes, makes it even more desirable. At launch its price put a lot of people off, but we think the unique design, spacious interior and silky diesel engine make it a worthwhile purchase. And the fact you can pick them up for just £2k now makes them very attractive!

Citroen SM Citroen has a habit of producing wacky cars, so when it teamed up with Maserati to build the SM in 1970, the result was always going to be bonkers. The SM didn’t only look amazing but was packed with tech, including speedsensitive steering and directional headlights. Maserati took care of the engine, slotting a V6 unit under the bonnet, and the French firm sorted the styling – the collaboration resulted in the creation of a classic. Renault Alpine A610 Attempting to take on the Porsche 944 with a plasticbodied Renault was, in hindsight, never going to be a success. But that doesn’t mean the Alpine A160, launched in 1991, isn’t cool. It’s got all the right ingredients – a 250bhp turbo-charged lump positioned in the back, rear-wheel drive and sleek looks. Add the fact it had a habit of snapping like a breadstick on the limit and, in our eyes, it’s even more appealing. Citroen C6 Here’s a classic in the making. Well, at least that’s what we reckon. The C6 has all the hallmarks of a future appreciator: Mental looks, sublime comfort and the usual amount of specification marvels including double-glazing, head-up display and clever suspension. But what we really love about the C6 is the looks – the dramatic nose and unique rear mark it out against German rivals and makes buying one a real statement.

Recipe of the month This quick and easy warm salad can be served as a main meal or simple starter. If you like strong flavoured blue cheeses choose Stilton or Roquefort, but if you prefer something a little milder pick Danish blue or creamy Dolcelatte.

Serves - 4 Ready in 15 minutes

Warm Pear, Walnut and Blue Cheese Salad 1 tbsp olive oil Small knob of butter 2 large firm pears, halved, cored & thickly sliced 55g (2oz) walnut halves, roughly chopped 1 large bag mixed rocket salad 115g (4oz) blue cheese, diced or crumbled

DRESSING 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar 1 tsp Dijon mustard 1 tsp caster sugar 5 tbsp olive oil Salt & freshly ground black pepper

1. Heat the oil and butter in a large non-stick frying pan. Add the pear slices and fry gently for 2-3 minutes on each side until tender and light golden. Add the walnuts to pan for the last 2 minutes of cooking time. 2. Divide the salad leaves between four serving plates. Top with the warm pear slices and walnuts and scatter over the blue cheese. 3. Place all the dressing ingredients in a jug and whisk until thoroughly blended. Adjust the seasoning to taste and pour the dressing into the frying pan. Heat gently for about 1 minute then pour over the salads. Season with a little more ground black pepper and serve immediately.
