4 As I write this I am feeling a bit nostalgic—the London 2012 Olympics have come to an end. But wasn’t it brilliant? We can be proud to be British. With the amazing torch relay, those wonderful opening and closing ceremonies, all the fantastic achievements of our athletes, masses of goodwill, transport that worked and was on time, not to mention almost two weeks of pretty good weather—it couldn’t really get any better. I am so pleased I was able to be a part of the excitement of the Games and I might almost miss some of the hype that went with it (though not for long I suspect!) I am looking forward to going to the Paralympics and lets hope this feeling of euphoria will last for a bit longer.

Wills and Lasting Powers of Attorney (LPAs) LPAs are documents which can be used to assist a person of any age who may be incapacitated owing to illness or an accident. We all risk accidents and anyone can be ill. We may have a business to run, bills to pay, sales contracts to conclude. The Elderly may retain their competence but not their energy and therefore wish to hand day to day chores to a member of the next generation. An LPA can only be signed by a person who has full understanding and who is not being pressurised to do so. It cannot be used until it has been registered by the Office of the Public Guardian. This process takes around three months. It is therefore not practical to wait until the need is dire. Accident and illness are not foreseeable. Consequently, having insurance and the right documentation such as LPAs is wise. Old age is foreseeable but it is difficult for the younger generation to broach this subject with their parents. It is far better if anyone over the age of 60 is able to take the initiative and get the right documents prepared. Wills Writing a Will enables you to control the destination of your money and assets after your death. It is possible to ensure that your loved ones are protected and money and assets do not inadvertently leave the family. Parents should always nominate guardians for minor children.

“Clients of Shaws Wills and Trusts”

It is possible to ensure that your chosen heirs inherit and tax is minimised or, in many cases, avoided altogether. Getting these documents right now, well in advance, can save your family a great deal of stress and expense. If your Will predates the change in the law in 2007 it may be better to rewrite it. “The Opposite of love is not hate. It is indifference.” Oscar Wilde.

Local bespoke Carpentry Paul Flint and his dedicated team represent all that is good about small, local business. Paul took the leap to set up his own business – Paul Flint & Company in 1992. He had gained his qualifications while doing a four year, hands-on a p p r e n ti c e s hi p with a traditional boat building company, followed by a solid background in all aspects of timber craft – from furniture to general joinery. Paul was feeling frustrated by the constraints of working for others, to their agendas, and believed that he could be offering a better service, a better product and generally delivering a better package all round – and also hoped that he would get more time for windsurfing! He was swift to discover that in order to ‘go the extra mile’ for his clients and deliver high quality, bespoke products at a reasonable cost, the windsurfing would have to wait! In the 20 years since he set up the company, Paul has gathered around him a team of

like-minded, talented craftsmen and the company has built a fully deserved reputation for p r od uc in g w ell - de si gn ed , beautifully crafted products that are second to none. The workshop has developed and evolved, and now boasts state of the art machinery and computer facilities, and an innovative and environmentally sound dust extraction system that recycles the wood dust into timber fuel briquettes. The last 20 years have seen great changes in client attitudes and expectations. More emphasis is now placed on value for money, security and sustainability, but Paul Flint & Company is confident that these qualities are not only compatible with, but are dependent upon, other criteria, such as innovation, thinking ‘outside the box’ and the selection and use of only the best materials. This naturally includes the revolutionary ‘Accoya’, for which the company is one of only a handful of accredited users. Accoya is a highly sustainable, high performance timber that has undergone a proprietary,

non-toxic process that permanently modifies the wood to the core. This results in an environmentally sound product that can match – or even exceed – the best tropical hardwoods in terms of durability, stability and beauty. So whether it’s a modest requirement or larger-scale project, Paul Flint & Company believes that the commissioning of bespoke joinery should be an exciting and hassle-free experience. At their Hampshire workshop the skilled and dedicated craftsmen ensure that every customer enjoys all aspects of a job, from initial consultation and design right through to completion and installation. Combined with its attention to detail and sourcing of first class fittings, Paul Flint & Company always produces results of the highest quality, and will be happy to advise on any joinery or carpentry needs – get in touch now or visit the website, www.paulflintandco.co.uk.

Trees under attack Around this time last year, I wrote a piece on Horse Chestnut Leaf Miner (Cameraria ohridella) and how it had come to the UK and was spreading across the country. From the spread of this, and Dutch Elm Disease in the 70’s, you would have hoped we had learnt that the Channel will not protect our trees forever. However, this is not the case with more tree pests and diseases being introduced. These recent tree pests could be hugely significant on the trees that make up the English countryside over the next 10-20years. Oak Processionary Moth (Thaumetopoea processionea) In 2006 Oak Processionary Moth was first found on a couple of sites in West London. These caterpillars group together in numbers so large that they can completely defoliate trees in a single season, at which point they process to the next Oak tree. They are covered in irritating hairs that contain a toxin which, on contact with skin or when inhaled, can result in skin irritation and allergic reactions. Since 2006, the outbreak area has grown with outbreaks now moving into East Surrey

areas of the fun ction ing timber and possibly leading to tree death or secondary infection. Asian Longhorned beetle

Phytophthora ramorum A fungus like pathogen was found a few years ago in the USA and at that time few trees were affected in the UK. However, in 2009 it made headlines in the UK when it was found to have affected many plants and shrubs but particularly rhododendron, viburnum and camellia. The pathogen’s behaviour changed resulting in it rapidly reproducing and infecting commercially important conifer tree species. It has now spread to many parts of the country from the South West to the North. Whilst all of this may sound rather negative, the Forestry Commission are working Oak processionary moths towards a more strategic approach to forest and tree health, and we can all do our bit to help prevent the spread of pests and diseases from site to site.

Massaria disease (Splanchnonema platani) Since 2009, there has been confirmation of Massaria disease on Plane trees in London. Although individual cases had been reported previously, the frequency of occurrences in 2009 raised alarm. The disease is specific to Plane trees and will often lead to branch die-back and failure if adequate pruning work is not completed. Asian Longhorned Beetle (Anoplophora glabripennis) Early this year Asian Longhorned beetle, a native of China, was found in Kent and poses a serious threat to a wide range of broadleaved native trees. The larvae of the beetle live and feed in the tree, killing

The forestry commission have offered the following advice to the public when enjoying the great outdoors:

• Mud can carry pests and diseases, so always clean your boots and shoes and wash down the tyres of bikes and behicles after off-roading. Keep to obvious paths when walking in the countryside and keep an eye out for any information on noticeboards.

• Plants and leaves may already be home to pests and diseases and therefore avoid taking plants or cuttings home from forests. By the same token resist planting out your garden plants or, especially important, never dump garden waste in the countryside.

Fitness Tip for September Feeling all full of inspiration after watching all those amazing and dedicated athletes compete in the Olympics? We all find that feeling of "come on, if they can do that, I can find 20 minutes to do a workout" fades pretty quickly, but here's a way which will help you keep it. When you first get that surge of "let's do it", hold onto the determination you feel at that moment, analyse it in your mind and write down exactly what it is you're feeling - it might be "everyone else can do it, why can't I?" "I know I've been lazy recently, now's the time to change" - write it down, hold onto it and use your note sheet as often as you need to, to get yourself revved up again! www.fitzbiztraining.co.uk

STOP: Stress situations can be diffused and wonderful moments can be cherished by learning to stop and name the experience you are having.

Haslemere, the hub of things sparkling A unique opportunity to try the very best wines of Surrey, Sussex and Hampshire. Saturday 15th September 2012, 7pm. Haslemere Museum. Our local wine producers have hit the jackpot. Think of the spinning reels on a fruit machine. If they all line up you get a payout. If one’s out of place you get less, if more than one is out you get nothing. It’s been that way for English wine producers ever since the Romans first tried and failed to make wine in our marginal climate. The first reel is climate and most of ours is too cold to properly ripen grapes; the reason why until recently the tiny industry has concentrated on hardy, but often unexciting, grape varieties. Growers are now seeking prized south facing slopes that ripen grapes in a similar way to the slopes of Champagne. The next reel is soil. Vines hate having their feet in water and prefer warm, dry soils. Unfortunately, in the south there’s a lot of unsuitable soil that has led to mediocre wine. There’s much talk about the chalk of the Downs being of the same strata as that found in Champagne and this why we’re making good wine. It is and some of it does, but many of the best are on greensand outcrops, which is a warmer soil than chalk. The next reel is the grape. It was commonly thought that we couldn’t ripen the good ones (for the reasons above), but on the right sites and soils Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier (the constituent grapes of Champagne) ripen to give wines every bit as good as Champagne. The final reel is production, the way the vine is

grown and the wine is made. Farsighted producers now have the confidence and budgets to be investing in the best technology at the same levels as Champagne producers. In the last fifteen years these reels have lined up and our local producers have begun winning many prestigious international competitions with sparkling wines. In England we currently buy over 35 million bottles of Champagne a year. We currently produce less wine than a tenth of that (including still wine), but vine plantings for sparkling wine are on the increase here at an accelerating pace that suggests more and more producers are all too aware of the jackpot up for grabs. The Haslemere WineFest will showcase the best of these producers, so come along and meet them in person before they’ve built their grand Châteaux on the South Downs and are too rich and busy to come to us at all. Part of the Haslemere Food Festival, Haslemere WineFest has been organised by Francis Gimblett, Haslemere based wine presenter and author. ‘I wanted to show locals the wine trade’s best kept secret ─ that these wines are now world beaters.’ Tickets are £10 and will be available from www.wine-navigator.com and via The Haslemere Cellar. Please see the website to pre-register. All proceeds go to local charities. Wineries appearing include: Bluebell Vineyard, Breaky Bottom, Bolney Wine Estate, Danebury Vineyard, Davenport Vineyard, Fernhurst Estate, Henners, Jenkyn Place, Nutbourne Vineyards, Nyetimber, Plumpton College, Ridgeview, Stopham Estate, Tinwood Estate, Upperton Vineyard, Wickham Estate. “It gives us so much pleasure to showcase our current range at an event celebrating all things English. We are very much looking forward to meeting and greeting the local community and hearing first hand their thoughts on the top quality wine English soils are capable of producing!” Nyetimber Estate

The Benefits of Hypnotherapy Let those emotions go! Her mother left home when she was 11 and her father died in unpleasant circumstances when she was 13. At the time Gillian just got on with life and dealt with these issues calmly and competently. In her late thirties, she had counselling to help get these early events into perspective. It helped a lot. But recently these migraines and clenching had been getting worse. As more and more is understood about the brain, it is clear that logic and emotion are stored in very different ways and the brain has different structures to deal with each. This means that sometimes we can think we have dealt with a situation logically, yet still experience the effects emotionally. Richard Morley is a locally based clinical hypnotherapist. He is a tutor at the London College of Clinical Hypnosis and a full member of the British Society of Clinical Hypnosis. He is one of only a few Certificated NLP and health practitioners in the UK and a Master Practitioner and Trainer of NLP. He has helped hundreds of people from all walks of life become happier, healthier and more productive. Gillian, in her late forties, is a happily married mother who has increasingly been beset by migraines and has been waking up in the mornings with a sore jaw through having clenched her teeth at night. She has been taking medication to help her sleep. Gillian had what in most people’s terms would have been a difficult childhood.

Richard had three sessions with her using a combination of hypnotherapy, EMDR (a trauma therapy) and Alpha-Stim therapy (highly effective for depression, anxiety, stress and insomnia). Very quickly, Gillian found that she was sleeping better and that the jaw clenching and migraines were reducing. It is one of the characteristics of hypnosis that one can access the emotional parts of the brain more readily than when in the normal waking state. And in hypnosis Gillian has been able to get an emotional awareness and release that has allowed her to peacefully sleep in a way that she hasn’t been able to do before, without medication. In her own words “ I feel that I’ve made more steps towards putting the past behind me and feel that I’m in control of my migraines without the side effects of medication. I’ve recommended hypnotherapy to my friends and believe that we should all be looking to complimentary therapies before “popping pills”. Richard hold clinics at Stricklands Dental Fitness Centre, 200 metres from Haslemere station. Appointments there can be booked on 01428 654923. He can be contacted direct on 0845 6066089 or via his website www.hypnonlp.co.uk.
