Spotlight On...

Spirit-of-the-South Chorus

Psychologists will tell you that singing raises your spirits, relaxes the mind and simply delivers that feel good factor, and we all need that. Being part of Spirit-of-the-South certainly delivers these benefits. We are a ladies harmony chorus consisting of twenty three members of all ages who meet once a week for rehearsal and good conversation. We have been together since 2008 and are affiliated to LABBS (Ladies Association of Barbershop Singers).

“we get great satisfaction from the audience’s reaction to our songs, which gives us all a lift” Our members don’t need to be able to read music as our wide selection of songs are available on teaching CDs and MP3 players which makes them very easy to learn. The fun part is when we sing at various events as we get great satisfaction from the audience’s reaction to our songs, which gives us all a lift. Hand in hand with performing goes fund raising, which plays a big part in our yearly programme we are particularly fond of generating funds for The

Rowan’s Hospice. We were recently invited to sing for the staff inside their new charity shop in Havant as a thank you for all their hard work. Everyone enjoyed it so much we were asked back to sing outside the shop much to the delight of the public, taxi drivers, shopkeepers etc. We even had photos taken! Christmas is a wonderful time for us as the atmosphere is just magical wherever we go. We have shared some lovely singing time in the atrium at QA Hospital in Cosham as the sounds floats beautifully up to the higher levels. Every event gives us the opportunity to sing our new songs as well as our tried and tested repertoire. If variety is the spice of life we certainly have it, as we have sung everywhere from St John’s Cathedral Portsmouth to the Historic Dockyard Christmas Fair and many places in between. Weddings are always very special and we have been so lucky to be invited to sing at these occasions. If you would like to book us for any event please contact Joy, our events coordinator, on 023 9264 1997 or Sandra, our public relations officer, on 023 9245 1220. New members are always welcome, so if you would like to join us, we rehearse on Tuesday evenings from 07.30 - 10.00 pm at Park Community School, Middle Park Way, Havant PO9 4BU – we look forward to seeing you soon!

If you would like your non-profit making local group or event to be featured here, please phone Forget-Me-Not on 01329 288822 or 01329 827777

Down the Allotment with Susan I didn’t know if I was going to be in a position to write this article this month as I was served a non cultivation notice in March! My first thoughts were how unfair this was, just four weeks previously I had dug a hole and it instantly became a pond - digging saturated soil ruins the structure and makes an awful mess, to say the least. However I had a choice, either to give in after 12 years or get going. Luckily I chose the latter!

the new plants. It may not have as many nutrients as artificial fertilizer but I think it makes a difference, it adds to the soil structure and I am sure the potatoes appreciate it.

The strawberry bed is now fully planted with the first strawberry gems starting to appear on the plants

The weather so far this spring has been amazing, perfect for getting all the seedlings in the greenhouse off to a good start. I’m not sure if I should have planted all 1165 of the celery seeds. Why do they put so many seeds in a packet? If they all grow to adult plants I could start up a farmer’s market!

So armed with my spade I have dug, weeded and tidied far more than I thought possible in just one week, it certainly gave me renewed enthusiasm and determination. As a result, the strawberry bed is now fully planted with the first strawberry gems starting to appear on the plants. Sweetcorn, potatoes, leeks, onions etc. are all planted and the whole plot is starting to take shape. My husband and sons have refilled the industrial sized compost bin with manure after distributing all of last year’s rotted stuff around

I’m planning to put the bean wigwam up again to support the climbing beans

I’m planning to put the bean wigwam up again to support the climbing beans. The canes are easy to erect if you put them round in a circle (leaving a gap on one side for an entrance if you have kids who may want to sit inside), then all you need to do is pull all the sticks together at the top with string. Make sure you put lots of string round to make it last through the summer into the autumn. The beans will need help getting started by tying onto the sticks initially but once they start twisting they will support themselves. It doesn’t take long before they begin flowering and producing their harvest. I hope some of you have been inspired to start growing some of your own vegetables and fruits this year, I know I enjoy doing it.

Happy growing! Susan

the charity for your community Dealers should do this as part of the service, but buyers should ask for proof.

Your Car Could be at Risk with Logbook Loans Fast access to cash with no credit checks, sounds tempting when there are big bills to pay. But many borrowers are being lured by slick advertising into log-book loans – a type of lending where your car becomes security for the loan and can be repossessed without court action if you fail to keep up the repayments. Research compiled by Citizens Advice shows that many logbook lenders charge very high interest rates - an average of 400%. In addition, they often include a wide range of extra charges as well as confusing borrowers with unnecessarily complex contracts. Logbook lenders also tend not to check whether people can afford the repayments on the loans they offer, so there is a high risk that borrowers will default and lose their car. Some have had their vehicles confiscated while on their way to work, or while they were parked overnight outside their homes. Even more shocking is the fact that people who buy a used car which (unknown to them) is subject to a logbook loan can also lose their vehicle or be forced to repay the outstanding debt. The logbook lender is the legal owner and does not even have to go to court to repossess the vehicle. With this in mind, when buying a used car it is always best to pay for a data check to see if there is an outstanding loan on the vehicle.

Citizens Advice is campaigning for tighter regulation of logbook lenders. “The logbook industry is still in the dark ages and has been getting away with lawless practices. It is absolutely absurd that a firm should be able to take away someone’s possessions without any due legal process,” said Citizens Advice Chief, Gillian Guy.

Citizens Advice is campaigning for tighter regulation of logbook lenders

If you are in financial difficulty your local Citizens Advice Bureau can help you sort out your debts. Alternatively the Debt and Money section of our website – adviceguide.org.uk – has information to help you with your problems. The Consumer/ Cars section of the website tells you what to do if you’ve bought a car that has a logbook loan.

Getting to Know... How did you get involved in Strictly Come Dancing? Vincent: I performed on Dance Fever on BBC1 and the producer, who was also involved in Strictly, saw me – she was in love!! Tell us something we might not know about Strictly... Vincent: The professional dancers start work in August each year, one month earlier than the celebrities. Any embarrassing moments on the show? Vincent: No – I’m perfect! Although both originally from Italy, Vincent Simone and Flavia Cacace were both living in the UK when they met in their teens. Luckily this meeting was at a point when they both needed a new dance partner; they teamed up and competed successfully for many years. They went on to win many awards including UK Ballroom Champions for several years and World Argentine Show Champions 2006. In 2005 Vincent and Flavia joined Strictly Come Dancing and proved hugely popular with viewers across the country. We caught up with the couple recently as they prepared for their new touring stage show, Dance ‘Til Dawn. When you were a child, what did you want to be when you grew up? Vincent: A gigolo! Flavia: I didn’t really have a clear idea as a child, but I started dancing at five and never stopped...

Flavia: Vincent and I once were trapped behind a big red curtain and couldn’t get onto the dance floor; we had to run so fast to make it in time!

I started dancing at five and never stopped You’ve had some amazing Strictly success stories – what have been the highlights? Vincent: For me, making the Strictly final twice. Flavia: Too many to list, obviously winning in 2012 with Louis was definitely one of the highlights, also winning the 2013 Christmas Special with Rufus Hound as well as performing with all the great musical acts over the years.


Vincent Simone & Flavia Cacace Tell us about your training programmes... Vincent: I dance as much as I can – I’m always dancing, or if I’m not, I’m resting. Flavia: We rehearse from 10 am – 6 pm each day, we then perform eight shows a week when we’re on tour. What’s your favourite dance? Vincent & Flavia: The Argentine Tango! You’ll soon be bringing your sensational dance show, Dance ‘Til Dawn, to the Mayflower, Southampton – what can fans expect from the show? Vincent: This show is full of surprises and showcases many different varieties of dance – prepare to be entertained! Flavia: The show has plenty of 1940’s Hollywood glamour with some comedy, lots of different dance styles, great singing and a fun storyline including a murder – something for everyone! What do you miss most about home when you’re on the road? Vincent: My two sausages (sons) – Luca and Matteo!

Flavia: Obviously my family above anything else and just the familiarity of being at home and all my clothes, even though I enjoy travelling. You’ve been dance partners for a long time – do you ever fall out? Vincent: No, even if she wants to! Flavia: Not really, there’s no point.

There is nothing more important for a dancer than to perform with the music Any advice you would give to young dancers? Vincent: There is nothing more important for a dancer than to perform with the music, to feel it – music is the soul of dance! Flavia: You’ll need to work hard and be patient but persistent! Vincent & Flavia

will be bringing their amazing dance show, Dance ‘Til Dawn, to the Mayflower, Southampton from Tuesday 1 – Saturday 5 July (Tues – Sat 7.30 pm, Thurs & Sat 2.00 pm). This is a classic love story that brings vintage Hollywood glamour to the present. This unforgettable evening of timeless sophistication and breathtaking dance is a real ‘must see’.

At the Heart of Our Community... Portchester Community Association (PCA) has a proud and interesting history and engenders tremendous local goodwill. Founded in 1962, it is one of the longest established Associations in Hampshire. PCA has always strived to meet local needs and for many years has hosted events, taster days and other initiatives designed to foster community spirit and cater for local interests. PCA also works in partnership with other agencies, promoting joint activities. Last year the PCA opened Portchester Hub in the village precinct - this Hub will shortly move into a new permanent base almost opposite its current location. “This is really great news” said Sarah Moss, PCA Manager; “all our services are in great demand so the new premises will provide more room to operate from”. Popular new activities include chess and table tennis while PCA volunteers recently completed training in Dolphin software to support visually impaired people get the most out of computers. Although many activities are run in outreach locations including Portchester and Highslopes Community Centres as well as Portchester Library, Sarah says Portchester Hub is the place people gravitate to for information on an eclectic mix of topics. “We get all sorts of requests for help and information and we couldn’t deal with any of these requests without our fantastic team of volunteers. We’ve been asked about adapted bathrooms, football fixtures, keeping horses, emailing maps abroad, passport forms, furniturestripping, making a will, hospital appointments, knitting services (we found one!) and frequently

for bus times. Providers often assume everyone goes online – which isn’t true. We do help people access online help (often recruiting them to our “IT for Beginners” class), but many need information the old-fashioned way – face-to-face with a friendly person. Although not funded for this there isn’t really anywhere else locally people can go and be sure of a positive response no matter what the question. We never provide advice we aren’t qualified to but we’re good at unpicking and explaining issues and then sign-posting appropriately when specialist information is needed”.

“Portchester Hub is the place people gravitate to for information on an eclectic mix of topics” In addition, local residents enjoy some 20 activities covering sport, arts and leisure learning from PCA. “Not only that but it’s nearly Gala time” said Sarah. “Entries are flooding in so book now for the best Gala yet! Meanwhile, we’re excited about being able to continue serving the community.” Portchester Hub will be closed for two weeks while the move takes place early this month but all PCA (and Gala) information is at www.portchesterca.org.uk or you also contact us by phone 023 9221 0048, email admin@portchesterca.org.uk, or like us on Facebook “Portchester Community Association”.
