Ocean Wonders

Photography and Marine Awareness Exhibition by Victoria Walker 2nd - 7th October 2017 Salvation Army Hall, St. Ives St. Ives Photographer Victoria Walker will be exhibiting a collection of large format underwater images of humpback whales this October 2nd-7th at The Salvation Army Hall on the Harbour front in St. Ives Ocean Wonders showcases the world of the humpback whale of which few have had the privilege of experiencing first-hand. Victoria’s images seek to inspire empathy as well as contributing to the public’s greater awareness and understanding of marine conservationrelated issues. Using photography and videography the motivation for her work is to strive towards better protection of marine species.

The exhibition aims to show why the oceans are worth protecting, the beauty of the whales – and what we stand to lose if we continue to dump plastics into the sea. Aside from the underwater photography collection, the exhibition will also feature work from marine conservationist and Artist Rob Arnold, exhibits from the Rame Peninsula Beach Care Group (including a 65,000 disposable bottle top chain made from washed up plastic bottle tops found on the beach), short films from Gweek Seal Sanctuary displaying their work from rescue, rehab to release and The Sea Life Trust showing all the work they do to help protect marine wildlife and habitats around the world.

Embracing Technology in our Business All of us are aware of the increasing number of advances in communication technology over the last few years, and its progress is showing little sign of slowing down. For those of us in business, particularly those in the service sector, we can ill afford to ignore these changes, particularly as the younger generation are so familiar with this technology. At Cornwall Chiropractic Clinic in Foundry Square, we are looking at ways to improve our back office and communication systems, and the way we interact with our patients. We recognise that in this busy world, patients are increasingly looking for faster response times, self-help and ease of communication. The increasing use of tablets and phones, and the technology that drives them, gives us, as businesses, a real opportunity to do things differently. Before, we have relied on manual systems and staff to maintain our communication with patients, now technology

12

makes that so much easier. We have launched a new website that is available and easily read on a range of hardware, particularly on tablets and phones. We have also introduced an online booking system that is now accessible via our website, offering patients ‘out of hours’ control over their bookings. We are planning to launch further initiatives this year, using technologies to enhance the communication with our patients, giving them a more flexible and informative service that helps them in their busy lives. For more information on our services at the clinic or to book an appointment please visit www.cornwallclinic.co.uk or call 01736 759088

Travel - Sponsored By St Ives Travel Patagonia: Lake District

and over 100 species of trees.

Puerto Varas is the departure point for the scenic boatbus crossing of the Andes to San Carlos de Bariloche in Argentina, taking in a string of lakes. Most visitors overnight in Peulla, a magical sort of place by a tiny remote lake, before facing every type of weather the Andes can conjure up in 48 hours.

In the southernmost reaches of the American continent, Patagonia is divided between two countries. To the west Chile owns a mere 25%, while Argentina to the east claims the remainder. Between them rise the Andes, but in the ancient land of the ‘big feet’, so called by early explorers, the beautiful Patagonian lakes have no borders. A thousand kilometres south of Santiago de Chile, Puerto Varas sits on the bank of Llanquihue, meaning ‘blue water’ in the local Mapuche language. Protected from the Pacific by a mere strip of land, it is the most popular and second largest lake in Chile. It opens out like a fan, looking across to mighty volcanoes where snowy tops barely disguise the danger. At over 2,600 metres, Osorno has been dormant for almost 150 years but its neighbour Cabulco erupted in 2015 with hardly any warning at all. Yet on the southern shore, the pretty resort of Puerto Varas is as relaxed as ever, sprinkled with alpine chalets, manicured lawns and flower gardens, hence the name ‘City of Roses’. From the cuisine to the architecture, there is much German influence around, reflecting the ‘selective immigration’ of the 19th century designed to boost development. Below the lush meadows where the red-topped church spires rise, dark sands glisten along the lakeside promenade and after dark, garlands of lights twinkle around the bay. Here you can kayak, trek, ski in winter or explore the Perez Rosales National Park, home to the Petrohué waterfalls, exotic birds

At 893 metres, on the shores of Lake Nahuel Huapi, San Carlos de Bariloche owes its name to ‘the people behind the mountains’, hidden for centuries from missionaries and conquistadors. Today visitors come from afar to ski on Cerro Catedral’s slopes, trek in the forests of the National Park or sunbathe on the beach. Swimming in the glacial waters is not recommended. The lake is up to 157 metres deep, measures 357km around, has seven branches connecting it to other lakes and its own monster, Nahuelito, discovered in the early 1900s but long known to aborigines. It is rich in trout and salmon, attracts kelp gulls and blue-eyed cormorants and is the source of the Limay river. Wooden chalets and stylish villas doze on the shore while downtown, myriad chocolate shops beckon along the high street where brightly-clad women shelter under the arcades, knitting ponchos and woolly hats. The church boasts over 45 stained glass windows and on the quaint clock tower, traditional Patagonian figures come out twice a day to strike the hours. But when the sun is shining, the unmissable attraction is the 360° panorama from Cerro Otto, at 1,405 metres. A cable car glides silently to the summit’s breathtaking view, stretching from the toy-like town below to the vast expanse of Nahuel Huapi, the islands, the neighbouring lakes and the rugged hills and mountains all around. It’s cold and windy on the top but the revolving restaurant welcomes you with hot food and drinks at reasonable prices and the most stunning views of Patagonia’s Lake District. If you would like to know more about these featured destinations, call our travel experts at St Ives Travel who can help you find that perfect break.

St. Ives Archive: Well done the Cornish! Over the years, many people who started life in Cornwall have gone on to make a name for themselves after travelling the world and settling many miles from home. One of them was Sir John Quick, an important figure in the formation of the Australian Federation, who was born in Towednack in 1852. His mother was a Quick, as well as his father, and his cousins lived at Trevessa Farm nearby. John and his family left Cornwall when he was two, and emigrated to Bendigo in the new colony of Victoria, Australia. Because it was the epicentre of a gold rush, the Cornish people were building their own little Cornwall, so John grew up still among the Cornish. He made his way in life the hard way. His father died soon after the family arrived in Australia, and he had to leave school at the age of 10. After working in foundries, mines and a printing room, he taught himself shorthand and became a newspaper reporter before attending Melbourne University and qualifying as a lawyer. He went on to become a campaigner for the creation of a single Australian nation, and a Member of Parliament. Years later, in 1911, as a member of an Australian Government committee visiting Great Britain, Sir John travelled to West Cornwall to see his birthplace. Sir John Quick died in 1932. A fountain was erected in his memory in Bendigo, and a street named after him. In 2002, a plaque was unveiled in Towednack, to mark the 150th anniversary of his birth.

cottage in Copperhouse Terrace, Hayle. In her early years, her father’s work as a chemist was declining, so the family decided to emigrate to Ontario, Canada. As a young woman, Elizabeth worked at a pharmaceutical company in New York, where she learned about skincare, before going on to open her first beauty salon – the start of a hugely successful cosmetics empire. Andrew Pears was another Cornish skincare pioneer. He was born in Mevagissey in around 1770, and went to London to open a hairdressing salon, where he also produced the first Pears soap. It achieved great success when it was endorsed by the great actress Lily Langtry, and continues to be popular today. Elaine Pearce

Winning the annual Horizon prize gave huge early career boosts to both Irish singing star Cara and Looe-based Sam. And Cara, the 2002 best newcomer, is a big fan of Sam, the 2016 winner. “Sam has such a beautiful voice and sings with so much soul,” said the acclaimed Irish songstress. “I’ve seen him perform live a few times and he’s amazing...he’s so talented.” The Changing Room, founded and fronted by Sam and Tanya Brittain, will be headlining at St Ives Guildhall on September 16 -

While Cara has such kind words for Sam Kelly, she numbers superstar Ed Sheeran among her admirers. “Loved ever single album you’ve put out,” said Sheeran. “Sublime, heavily reccommend to anyone.” And while The Changing Room are making their St Ives September Festival debut, Cara has fond memories of her previous appearance at The Guildhall. “I’m very excited to be returning,” she said. “I absolutely love Cornwall and I so rarely get to perform there. “The last time I played the Festival was back in 2012 and I remember having a fantastic show. “After the concert the whole band and I ended up in an improvised cabaret sketching session in a painting club until 2am!” For further details of more than 300 events at this year’s St Ives September Festival see www.stivesseptemberfestival.co.uk

Gardening Jobs for September/October

• Summer baskets and containers might start coming to an end soon but try to prolong flowering by regular deadheading and feeding.

Garden Notes

• Have a final Autumn sow of biennials and hardy annuals to get a head start on next year’s cut flowers. Try Foxgloves, Honesty and Ammi. • Sow a ‘green manure’ on any empty vegetable or flower beds. A crop like clover for example that can be sown, grown and dug into the soil in Spring to naturally feed the soil and fix nitrogen ready for the growing season ahead.

Plant of the Season Japanese Anemones I adore the Autumn for its seed heads, berries, colourful leaves and of course for Anemones. Japanese Anemones (although technically

• Make use of the still warm soil by sowing quick growing crops such as radishes, spring onions and lettuces.

They can also vary in height so check the labels on any plants you buy.

Anemone hupehensis is Autumn flowering and can start producing blooms from August through to October and even November if properly cared for. They tend to dislike disturbance so select your spot carefully. Semi shade is ideal but they will also thrive in the sun and are happy to colonise an area if left untouched. Rich soil is also essential so adding organic matter to your soil is hugely beneficial. Varieties are available in

Other than removing the faded flower heads, cutting away any dead leaves and adding your well-rotted compost, they are easy to look after. For pure white flowers with a bright yellow centre try ‘Honorine jobert’. If you prefer a more vivid shade try the variety ‘Hadspen Abundance’ with its pink petals. Either way you can look forward to months of colour after a lot of other plants have had their day.

John Young Hypnotherapy My name is John Young and I am a Clinical Hypnotherapist based in Hayle. I help people with a range of issues, including low confidence, anxiety, phobias, smoking cessation and many others. My primary focus, however, is pain management (chronic pain) and weight management. Hypnotherapy is a commonly misunderstood treatment with many myths surrounding it. One such myth is that practitioners are able to take over a patient’s mind. This is not the case; hypnotherapy simply uses one’s natural trance state to help break negative mental states and enhance positive ones. My main goal is to help you fulfil parts of your life that you consider missing or lost, or to help change the parts that you no longer want. I would love to answer any questions you have

about hypnotherapy and am available to talk about this incredibly effective therapy by telephone or in person. Contact me at www.theunconsciouscoach.com or 07808099546

Book Review

By Alice Harandon: manager of St. Ives Bookseller The Lost Words – Robert Macfarlane and Jackie Morris ISBN 9780241253588 Penguin Books £20.00 pub 05.10.17 All over the country, there are words disappearing from children’s lives. The words of the natural world – Dandelion, Otter, Bramble, Acorn. The rich landscape of wild imagination and wild play is rapidly fading from our children’s minds. Here then, is a joyful celebration of nature words and the natural world they invoke. With beautiful “spell-poems” by writer Robert Macfarlane and hand-painted illustration by Jackie Morris, this enchanting book captures the irreplaceable magic of language and nature for readers young and old. A Legacy of Spies – John Le Carré ISBN 9780241308547 Penguin Books £20.00 pub 07.09.17 After 25 years, Smiley is back… Peter Guillam, staunch colleague and disciple of George Smiley of the British Secret Service, otherwise known as the Circus, has retired to his family farmstead on the south coast of Brittany when a letter from his old Service summons him to London. The reason? His Cold War past has come back to claim him. Intelligence operations that were once the toast of secret London, and involved such characters as Alec Leamas, Jim Prideaux, George Smiley and Peter Guillam himself, are to be scrutinised under disturbing criteria by a generation with no memory of the Cold War and no patience with its justifications. Interweaving past with present so that each may tell its own intense story, John le Carré has spun a single plot as ingenious and thrilling as the two predecessors on which it looks back: The Spy Who Came in from the Cold and Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy. Signed copies will be available!

The Wizards of Once – Cressida Cowell ISBN 9781444936704 Hodder £12.99 pub 19.09.17 This is the story of a young boy Wizard and a young girl Warrior who have been taught since birth to hate each other like poison; and the thrilling tale of what happens when their two worlds collide. Perfect for those who love fantasy adventure... Once there was Magic, and the Magic lived in the dark forests. Until the Warriors came...Xar is a Wizard boy who has no Magic, and will do anything to get it. Wish is a Warrior girl, but she owns a banned Magical Object, and she will do anything to conceal it. In this whirlwind adventure, Xar and Wish must forget their differences if they’re going to make it to the dungeons at Warrior Fort. Where something that has been sleeping for hundreds of years is stirring... From the author of the bestselling How to Train Your Dragon saga, comes an exciting new high-adventure series - set in an ancient, magical time, full of Wizards, Warriors, Giants and Sprites! La Belle Sauvage: The Book of Dust Volume One – Philip Pullman ISBN 9780385604413 Random House £20.00 pub 19.10.17 “What can I tell you about it? The first thing to say is that Lyra is at the centre of the story.” - Philip Pullman 22 years after Northern Lights, The Book of Dust will return to the parallel world that has enthralled readers young and old. Eleven-year-old Malcolm Polstead and his dæmon, Asta, live with his parents at the Trout Inn near Oxford. Across the River Thames (which Malcolm navigates often using his beloved canoe, a boat by the name of La Belle Sauvage) is the Godstow Priory where the nuns live. Malcolm learns they have a guest with them; a baby by the name of Lyra Belacqua.

St. Ives Farmers’ Market With Oliver’s Olives

My final role in a long career with Local Government was a Neighbourhood Enforcement Officer. This involved dealing with anti-social behaviour and I specialised in Domestic Abuse. This type of work has a shelf life and it took its toll on my physical health. At weekends I started making silver jewellery for some escapism from my stressful office job. I needed to leave my job to avoid my health deteriorating and as much as I love making jewellery and galleries stocking it; it wasn’t enough to bring in a steady income. I wanted to work for myself and my other interest was food and keeping healthy. A small sister partnership called Oliver’s Olives became available and I now work from home in a purpose-built unit and I’ve managed to grow the business in a short period. I attend St. Ives farmers market each Thursday, where I have several regular customers either living locally or who holiday in Cornwall and keep

coming back for more! My stall now looks like a mini deli as I include my home-made tapenade, various flavours of hummus and salads. I buy the best quality olives and freshly prepare them using my own marinades and recipes. Preparing them in small batches, ensures premium quality. I constantly receive positive feedback. I chatted to Kaz our great organiser at the market one day about my jewellery and she welcomed me to bring it along. I now sell my jewellery there as well – double whammy! The market has some fantastic producers of food and craft with a great atmosphere. All stall holders support each other and make a point of buying from each other rather than the supermarkets. We have our own little economy and believe in buying local. Julie Andrew, Oliver’s Olives m. 07779961268 e. olivers-olives@hotmail.com www.olivers-olives.co.uk
