Dear Neighbours, Welcome to the July edition of The Iceni Guide! Once again thank you for the feedback and lovely comments from residents of the NR10 villages that the guide is distributed to. It has been very encouraging. The magazine is a small business run by me from home. I live in the area —in Felthorpe— and like to use local trades-people and businesses for all the things that seem to need doing in my house! Knowing the results from other areas—a magazine likes this really works for the community as it profiles LOCAL businesses, events and people and boosts the local economy—which we are in dire need of with the new budget that has just been announced! So...we’re well and truly into summer now although the sun has been a little shy! But fingers crossed things will improve (and for the FIFA World Cup too!) and we should have lots more BBQ weather on the way. In this edition, we carry on with the toning up for summer and learn about Boxercise with Lee Ashford on page 5; and if you need to cool off after all that working-out there is an article on Go Scuba—a local diving centre in Stratton Strawless on page 8 and 9 which includes a voucher for 15 per cent off any diving course! Some ideas on what to do with the kids on those LOONNNNGGGG school summer holidays on page 10 and a look at the stunning work of artist Keith Nash on page 12 and 13. Happy reading!

Boxercise with Lee Ashford Boxing style training is a great way of achieving an all-over-body workout, whilst shedding those excess pounds that you still haven’t managed to shift since last Christmas. “Boxercise”, (a nationally recognised form of boxing training without any physical contact between opponents), teaches you to throw punches safely and correctly, mastering combinations, footwork and defensive blocks, with the added bonus of not being thumped by your opponent in return.

The aerobics form of workout is a great calorie burner, but, if you require a more in-depth routine by throwing real punches at punch balls, floor-to-ceiling balls or focus pads (foam filled pads held by an instructor), then hire yourself a Personal Trainer. A Personal Trainer will ensure that you follow the correct procedures, allowing a safe and rewarding training session. Make sure he or she is qualified as a Boxercise instructor as well as a fitness trainer. Don’t be afraid to ask for proof of qualifications and, very Check out your local leisure club or importantly, proof of public liability fitness centre. Most good clubs will insurance.

Gardening tips for July July’s summer weather brings holidays and time away! So maybe ask a friend to maintain the garden, in particular watering and lawn cutting. Trickle hoses are useful in gardens as they provide moisture at soil surface level at a sustained managed rate. Roses should be deadheaded and pruned to a bud point to encourage further flowering. Feeding roses with high potash feeds encourages strong flowering growth. Rosa “Gertrude Jekyll” is a good example. Conifer hedges and tree suckers should be cut to shape. Hollyhocks Climbing Roses and Sunflowers are at there best now. These months are usually the holiday months so let’s prepare the garden so you don't return to a jungle or a sea of dead plants.

Saving water this time of year following a routine hosepipe ban is a must. Rain water can be collected in easily installed water butts. And a covering of mulch over damp ground can help with water retention. Let’s remember to keep well soaked newly planted shrubs and trees. And that means a really good soak not just a little watering every day which may just wet the surface layers causing shallow root growth and not into the deeper root areas where further root development is necessary. I hope this advice helps over the summer months and enjoy the long summer days with good sun protection. Mike Ace of Spades Trees and Gardens

Try to book a neighbour, friends or family members to attend to the routine tasks of feeding plants, watering and mowing the lawn. A little bribery could go along way! LAWNS: The lawn will require cutting at its summer height and to be watered if dry weather prevails. Clover Pearlwort and Yarrow will require treatment with weed killer. If the lawn is overgrown upon your return then just tip cut it and then reduce the height of further mowing. GENERAL Ask someone while you are away to collect Runner beans and Courgettes that seem to appear all at once. Regular cutting of Dahlias and Sweet peas will prolong the flowering right through to the autumn. Feeding with liquid feed and removing Sweet pea tendrils encourage flowering.

Question:- I’m looking for a new hobby what can I do? Answer:- “GO SCUBA” The age old myth that scuba diving is only available to the rich and famous has long since been broken as scuba diving is now accessible to all. Scuba Diving or to use its full name “self contained underwater breathing apparatus” has been around since the 1930’s although the first attempt to make an underwater breathing apparatus was done in the 1500’s. With more and more people looking for alternative hobbies, scuba diving has become more popular than ever and with an underwater world full of tropical fish, turtles, coral reefs and ship wrecks it’s not hard to see why. So if you fancy giving it a go—Corinne from Go Scuba has the answers to a list of frequently asked questions:

8

Q: A:

What is the minimum age for scuba diving? If you are between 10 and 14 or have a child between these ages, there is a PADI Junior Scuba Diver program available

Q: A:

Is scuba diving dangerous? Scuba diving is not a dangerous sport. Scuba diving is riskier than a sport like hockey or baseball, but less dangerous than sky diving or mountain climbing. Modern scuba diving equipment is easy to use, very reliable and with the proper training and a responsible attitude scuba diving can be enjoyed safely. In fact, almost all scuba diving injuries and casualties are the result of recklessness or bad judgment.

Q: A:

Is it expensive to learn to scuba dive? NO - a standard open water course is available from as little as £349 and once completed you are free to scuba dive anywhere in the world. So for little more than a Playstation or Nintendo Wii you can get active, get underwater and see some of the most incredible sights.

Q: A:

How long does it take to complete your open water course Approx 6 weeks

Q: A:

Norfolk Artists... Spotlight on Keith Nash FRSA Keith Nash’s career in environmental engineering brought him and his wife to Norfolk in 1975, where they settled in the village of Little Dunham near Swaffham. Work commitments took him back to Surrey in 1982 but he never forgot the big skies and changing light of the Norfolk landscape and coastal marshes, famous for their wildfowl. As an admirer and collector of landscape watercolours he started painting about 15 years ago. His passion turned into a serious pursuit when several galleries starting selling his work and holding exhibitions. He was elected as a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts in 2004.

With the youngest of his daughters recently leaving for university, he decided it was time to move back to his adopted Norfolk in order to further his interest in landscape, wildfowl and seascape painting. Since then his work has been accepted in a number of galleries and is selling extremely well. In addition to gallery sales, Keith has started art workshops for those wishing to learn about landscapes and marine painting. To see more of Keith’s work you can go to his studio gallery at Alby Crafts in Erpingham near Aylsham or visit galleries such as Baron Art in Holt or The Flint Gallery in Blakeney or go online at www.keithnash.co.uk For any further information Keith can be contacted by email on info@keithnash.co.uk or tel: 07745 749997
