Issue 64 2018

The Benjamin Foundation The Benjamin Foundation is a local charity offering hope, opportunity, stability and independence to children, young people and families. We want to end youth homelessness and we’re tackling the problem locally by providing a home and support to over 100 vulnerable young adults every night. We give the young people a stable home and provide the skills they need so they can leave us and forge an independent life. Our work keeps vulnerable young adults off the streets and helps prevent the local homelessness problem from growing.

Introducing Our Job Coach Sharon is the Job Coach for The Benjamin Foundation. This role has been made possible due to funding received by the H & M Foundation, Eversheds Sutherland and the End Youth Homelessness project. Working with all the young people accessing housing services provided by our charity in Norfolk and Suffolk, Sharon spends time helping young people move into education, employment and training. With good knowledge of what colleges and providers are able to offer our young people in the county and beyond, Sharon works on both a one-to-one basis or with groups of young people. Her aim is to look at bespoke provisions and be creative about how we engage our young people. In 2017-18, she helped 127 young people move into employment, education and training.

How To Be Safe Around The Water This Summer • Take time to check the depth, water flow and layout of the pool, especially at leisure pools and holiday resorts • Never enter the water after drinking alcohol

So it’s that time of year where we all start to think about packing our suitcases and heading on holiday to create those family memories. A lot of these holidays will involve being around the water in some form. Hitting the pool or beach and going swimming is a fun and fantastic way to cool off and spend that much-needed family time together. It is also great exercise and a cheaper way to keep the children entertained and, with any luck, tires them out. However, the scary reality is that one third of school-aged children cannot swim by the time they leave primary school. Sadly, one of the biggest causes of drowning is unsupervised non-swimmers and there are still a high number of people, who put all their trust into floatation devices, assuming their children are safe using them. Unfortunately, if you read the small print, it isn’t necessarily the case, and they can even worsen incidents by keeping people in a face-down position. There are some things we can all do to help keep our loved ones safe around water. Here are the RLSS top tips for keeping safe on holiday: • Keep young children under constant supervision • Follow the pool rules (don’t dive into the shallow end)

• When researching your holiday, or arriving at the destination if you haven’t yet done so, check the safety arrangements of any waterbased activities and if there is lifeguard cover at the pool/beach • Check bathing sites for hazards, check the safest places to swim and always read the signs - find out what local warning signs and flags mean • Make sure the whole family can swim • Swim with any children in your care - it’s more fun and you can keep them close and safe • Never swim alone • On beaches check when the tide will be high and low and make sure that you won’t be cut off from the beach exit by the rising tide. Also be aware of dangerous rip-currents • Inflatable dinghies or lilos are a well-known hazard - each year there are drownings as people on inflatables are blown out to sea. Do not use them in open water • Do not swim near to or dive from rocks, piers, breakwater or coral • Swim parallel to the beach and close to the shore I hope everyone has a lovely summer and remember to keep safe around the water. If you would like any more help or advice on how to keep safe around the water or to enrol your child into our private swimming school for lessons, please feel free to get in touch via our website or Facebook page - Little Snappers Swim School Team www.littlesnappersswim.co.uk PAGE

CAMPERS URGED TO...

www.icenimagazine.co.uk

Issue 64 2018

Campers Urged To Listen To Safety Pitch Now that the school holidays have started, many people will be planning to pitch their tents in the countryside or setting off with caravans. In a safety pitch directly aimed at campers and caravanners, experts at electricity firm UK Power Networks are warning people to ‘Look out and look up’ to make sure they are not setting up camp near any overhead power lines. Nathan Hughes, the power firm’s public safety and education adviser, said as well as being careful where they place tent poles or TV aerials, holidaymakers must also be wary where they start campfires or tie washing lines.

He said: “Camping and caravanning are fantastic ways to enjoy the great outdoors and we want everyone to enjoy the experience safely”. “Cables and power lines can carry anything from 230 volts to 132,000 volts and even coming into contact with the lowest voltage cables can be fatal”. “Overhead power lines are more common in the countryside than towns and much of the equipment associated with camping and caravanning can easily conduct electricity, so it is always wise to ‘look out and look up’ first and then follow some simple guidelines so everyone can be happy - and safe - campers.”

CAMPERS URGED TO... Issue 64 2018

Ian Hewlett, technical manager for the Camping and Caravanning Club, said: “Electricity can be extremely dangerous and overhead cables carry much higher voltages than domestic supplies, so follow the UK Power Network advice and always check the area around your pitch for hazards”. “See our advice on camping hazards here at: http://www.campingandcaravanningclub. co.uk/helpandadvice/camping-safety/ campsite-hazards/”. UK Power Networks, who distribute electricity to around 18 million people across London, the South East and the East of England, has produced guidance aimed at ensuring people take care where they pitch up this summer. It includes: • If possible, avoid pitching your tent or caravan directly under or close to an overhead power line. • Be aware of any nearby overhead lines when erecting TV aerials or radio masts next to mobile homes or fixed caravans. • Metal and carbon fibre tent poles, guy ropes, TV aerials and almost every other long object can conduct electricity. Electricity can jump across gaps, so always carry them horizontally and parallel with the ground. • Never attach or tie anything to electricity poles, pylons or electrical equipment. • Never light a fire under an overhead line; heat from the fire could cause the wires to sag or break. UK Power Networks has published detailed guidance for campers and caravanners on how to stay safe near overhead power lines in leaflets available at: www.ukpowernetworks.co.uk PAGE

NEW SEASON

www.icenimagazine.co.uk

Issue 64 2018

New Season Announcement

Top-quality drama, cutting-edge dance, sublime music and must-see musicals, plus a lot of belly laughs along the way are all on the programme as Norwich Theatre Royal announces its new line-up running through to Spring next year. The new season announcements start with the stunning critically-acclaimed Romeo and Juliet from the Royal Shakespeare Company, which hits the Norwich stage from January 29 to February 2. Described as ‘fresh, fleet, blade-sharp’ by The Telegraph, it is directed by Erica Whyman who brought A Midsummer Night’s Dream to Norwich in 2016 and, as with that production, there will be some young actors from local schools cast. RSC associate designer Tom Piper has placed the story into the modern-day and rising young stars Bally Gill and Karen Fishwick, who are currently playing the star-crossed lovers on the Stratford stage, will reprise their roles. BAFTA award-winning star of stage and screen, Anthony Andrews will star in Tom Stoppard’s comedy Rough Crossing from March 2530. One of the playwright’s funniest plays, it features two playwrights stuck on an ocean liner heading for New York , feverishly trying to rehearse their latest show but being constantly distracted by their composer attempting to end it all after overhearing his lover confess her feelings for the play’s leading man. Peter James’s murderous thrillers are a firm favourite with Norwich audiences and the

author’s work returns in the shape of The House on Cold Hill. The theatre has previously hosted his tales Dead Simple and The Perfect Murder, and this latest ghostly story is also guaranteed to send shivers down your spine. It runs from March 11-16. Dance fans will be delighted to learn that Matthew Bourne returns from April 2-6 with his acclaimed Swan Lake, featuring a male ballet corps of swans. His contemporary interpretation has accrued an Olivier Award and three Tonys on Broadway, and is not to be missed. A future dance classic arrives from April 23-24 in the shape of Mark Morris Dance Group’s Pepperland. Morris has been hailed by the New York Times as ‘the most successful and influential choreographer alive, and indisputably the most musical’. Pepperland, presented by the Dance Consortium, is a unique tribute to the 50th anniversary of The Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band with an original score by Ethan Iverson, interspersed with special arrangements of some of The Beatles’ best-known hits. Richard Alston Dance Company returns from February 22-23, celebrating 50 years of Alston’s choreographic career with a triple

bill consisting of his newest work Brahms Hungarian Dances, a revival of Proverb which is set to the music of Steve Reich, and MidCentury Modern which celebrates Alston’s half century of making dance.

on January 19 as part of its ongoing classical music concerts series. The Sinfonia will be under the baton of conductor Sir Mark Elder and the concert will feature mezzo-soprano Anna Stéphany.

Plus former Strictly favourite Brendan Cole will return with his combination of Ballroom and Latin dancing on March 23.

Other exciting one-nighters will showcase popular music such as: Live On Mars The Very Best of David Bowie on November 5; the best of Broadway and West End musicals with Beyond The Barricade on January 2; an Elvis Presley Birthday Special with A Vision of Elvis on January 8; The Classic Rock Show UK 2019 on February 17; Mike and the Mechanics on February 20; Barbara Dickson in Concert on March 10 and Rumours of Fleetwood Mac Anniversary Tour on April 13.

On the musicals front, 2019 will see the return of the blockbuster hit The Bodyguard, which wowed audiences in summer 2016. On stage from April 30 to May 11, it features the breathtaking music of Whitney Houston, who played the lead role in the 1992 movie about a superstar singer who falls for her bodyguard. Club Tropicana The Musical is a new feel-good show which from February 25 to March 2 will transport audiences back to the 1980s with a tale about a bride and groom who get cold feet before their big day and jet off separately to sunnier climes, only to find themselves booked into the same hotel. Expect lots of comedy and chart-topping 1980s anthems such as The Look of Love, Fantasy Island, Relax and Take On Me. Following on from their success earlier this year with Top Hat, the Norfolk and Norwich Operatic Society returns from January 22-26 with Guys and Dolls, a show boasting fantastic songs such as Luck Be A Lady Tonight, Sit Down You’re Rocking The Boat and I’ve Never Been In Love Before. Comedians Jason Manford and Julian Clary both have dates to get Norwich audiences chuckling. Jason Manford brings his captivating Muddle Class tour to the stage on January 17 and 18, while Julian Clary’s outrageously camp show Born To Mince will arrive on June 6 next summer, so keen fans should book ahead.

On March 20, audiences can take a leap into the unknown with the Banff Mountain Film Festival, showing extraordinary short films from the world’s most prestigious mountain film festival featuring footage of adrenaline packed action sports from around the globe. Finally, a much-loved children’s show will return when Milkshake Live! presents its Monkey’s Musical with two performances on February 18. Judy Foster, of Norwich Theatre Royal, said: “We have a very eclectic mix of shows heading for our stage as we move through into next year, with some brand new productions complemented by a number of returning favourites. We’re thrilled to welcome the RSC back with a new acclaimed and exciting version of Romeo & Juliet which is sure to delight both the traditionalists and those who like to see their Shakespeare given a little current twist. Add in lots of dance, musicals, music and comedy, and there’s plenty to meet all tastes for live entertainment going through to next year.”

For music lovers, there is an eclectic choice from Mahler to Bowie and more. Britten Sinfonia brings Brahms and Mahler to the Theatre Royal

Charity Launches Campaign To Protect Rural And Farming Communities From Crime

The harm caused by crime in rural areas of Norfolk has prompted Crimestoppers to launch a campaign calling on local people to speak up and pass on information about those who are responsible.

The types of crime extend beyond theft and vandalism, crop damage, arson of hay bales, hare coursing and poaching; it can also include wildlife and heritage crime. It’s estimated that rural crime costs Norfolk more than £906,000 a year, according to the annual NFU Mutual’s Rural Crime Report.

each week by getting the endorphins flowing, I figured this would do the same. I also want to try new things and love the fact I can do this alongside my friends.

Why are we doing it?

B - I wanted to try something new which would challenge me in new ways as I think your body can get used to the regular exercise you do and you get stuck in a rut. I’m hoping this will give me new ideas and challenge me to get fitter.

P - Of course, I want to get fitter, but also having recently come out of a long-term relationship, I want to try and build my confidence and feel positive. Knowing how much Zumba lifts me

V - For several years now, I’ve been a Zumba fanatic and run on a fairly regular basis. I’ve been looking for other things to supplement my current regime and this seemed like the

perfect way. Unfortunately, my anxiety has got on top of me recently and my energy levels have dipped. But what better way to fight back than with endorphins and exercising with friends? How will we rate the activities? The following areas will be scored out of five. Each of us will do our own ratings as, knowing how different we are when it comes to finding a restaurant where we will all eat something on the menu (no names will be mentioned as to the fussiest of us!!!), we will ultimately argue for hours on end… Sweat - how sweaty did the activity leave us? Enjoyment - how much did we enjoy the activity? Effort - how much effort did we have to put in? Difficulty - how difficult was the activity to follow? DOMS (Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness) - did we suffer from DOMS afterwards? Cost - how expensive was the activity? We will also let you know if there were any advantages to booking several sessions at once. Overall - taking all of the above criteria into account, how likely are we to repeat the exercise and build it into our weekly fitness regime?

Mission 1 Activity: Personal Training (PT) Sessions with Happy Sports and Fitness Two of our children had been attending Gymnastics classes with Mike and when the offer of six PT sessions for £40 appeared on Facebook, us Norfolk Mums on a Mission decided that would be our very first activity. So far, we have had two sessions. We will be fully evaluating the sessions in next month’s edition of Iceni magazine. The location is a garden in rural Norfolk with a wealth of equipment - from tyres to ropes, boxing gloves to rowing machine, step to dumbbells. To say we were apprehensive before our first session is probably an understatement. “It seemed like a good idea at the time!” stated P whose tummy was filled with butterflies. B and V agreed as they sat in their car waiting for the previous clients to finish their session… In reality, the session wasn’t at all scary; it was physically demanding though. Mike put us all at ease. We had a quick warm up session and then he explained each exercise in the circuit, demonstrating correct posture and breathing. We completed each one for thirty seconds at a time before moving on to the next. Additionally, we had some measurements taken. Having started our PT sessions on one of the hottest evenings of the year, we were all proud of ourselves for not having suffered heat exhaustion. Smiles planted on our faces, we left feeling excited about the prospect of future sessions! Got any suggestions for future exercise/ sporting activities we should try? Let us know!

SORT OUT THE TENSION...

www.icenimagazine.co.uk

Issue 64 2018

Sort Out The Tension In Your Relationship We've all had relationships that have stalled at times, where something has gone wrong, been misinterpreted or been genuinely perceived as an abuse of the relationship. If you feel the relationship is worth saving, are unable to simply walk away, still have to meet each other or can't avoid each other it's important to navigate ways through the situation and sort out the tension in your relationship. • Discuss it. There may be times when we don't want to talk about what's happened or feel there's no point; we've hit an impasse where neither will agree. Indeed, sometimes talking can exacerbate tensions and make the situation worse. But there are times when it can help and even improve your relationship. It may allow you to gain a better understanding of each

other's point of view and an insight into how you're perceived. • Appreciate the role of a mediator. This doesn't have to a formal arrangement, but it may be helpful to include a third-party who's acceptable to you both and keeps any discussions on track. Agree to meet in a neutral place and be sure that both of you've allowed enough time so that your session doesn't need to be rushed. • Relax your reaction. Rather than adopting the role of victim, where you feel that the tension in your relationship is directed at you, instead entertain the notion that the other person's behaviour may have been innocent. For example, they may not have ignored you, but instead didn't see you. They may not have

invited you along to an event because they thought you'd not be interested. Sometimes, thoughtless behaviour can be misinterpreted as offensive or rude. And those momentary lapses can often be compounded over time, with each further slight reinforcing the problem. Nip tension in the bud; is it really such a big deal? Now, it's time to move on. • Change your perspective. Sometimes, one person in a relationship may feel that the other has changed and they're at a loss as to how to deal with the new you. Why couldn't things stay the same? If they're happy as they are and are resistant to moving out of their comfort zone they may feel that you are flying high, forging a new life for yourself, moving away from the 'old life' highlights their complacency or lack of ambition. They may feel frustrated, defensive at their own lack of drive and inertia, irritated that things are being stirred and shaken up. We all have different goals and dreams; different paths suit different people. Be sensitive to theirs whilst enjoying your own. • Listen and practise empathy. You know your own motivations, understand your feelings, but haven't we all had exchanges where someone else's comment or logic has revolutionised our outlook in an, 'I never thought of it like that' way? Listening allows for subtle as well as momentous insights to transform our thinking. • Seek to understand. You know deep down that the other person isn't bad or evil. If you've been friends or had a relationship for a while you, know the tension in your relationship could

Issue 64 2018

be the consequence of a personal situation they're struggling with. They may be in the midst of something they're perhaps too ashamed or embarrassed to share. Be generous. There may be some merit in allowing them a little latitude. • Remove your ego from the story. We can feel hurt, angry, upset, dismayed and run with a 'how could they, why me, don't they appreciate how nice/lovely/tolerant/ understanding I am?' mindset. When there's tension in our relationship, we're often able to justify our own feelings, but that interpretation is usually distorted by our personal viewpoint of what's been said or done. Remove your ego and stop explaining yourself, arguing your case or making 'witness testimony'. Allow yourself to be vulnerable, human and even criticised. Really listen to what the other person has to say. • Present a charm offensive. If you know the other person is acting out of character, suspect they're in a bad place or are perhaps jealous, lonely or feeling unloved, you could significantly improve the tension in your relationship by being extra nice and winning them over with kindness and charm. There may be no excuse for their bad behaviour, but you may well oil the wheels of your relationship and make for a more pleasant environment. That in itself could be worth it, may be worth letting things go for! Sometimes all it takes is a little time, thought and insight to help sort out the tension in your relationship. Any or all of the points raised here can add real benefits to those potentially damaging situations.

NOVA SILVER

Issue 64 2018

August At Nova Silver Thanks to the lovely warmth and sunshine this summer, the flowers have been in full bloom for a while now, across the country and are just beautiful.

The Shrieking Violet collection we have at Nova Silver actually uses real flowers set in resin to create some stunning items of jewellery. All cast in sterling silver, there are a range of designs in earrings, necklaces, rings and bracelets. Forget-me-nots, roses, heather, daisies, poppies and even four-leaf clovers look just gorgeous. Shrieking Violet also won Gift of the Year in 2017. We are often inspired by nature with our designs and our enamel range has recently been extended to include more items. Nova enamels feature sterling silver with enamels using the cold enamels process fused with semi-precious stones. Swallows are said to bring hope, freedom and love to family and friends. The earrings we have feature gorgeous small stones of faceted ruby as well as adding a sparkle with many marcasite on the body and wings. From wise owls, protective whales, eye catching flowers and our dragonflies that symbolize change and change in the perspective of self-realization, you’re bound to find something you like. Alternatively, if it’s something more modern you’re thinking of then our Geo Diamonds range might be for you. Designed at our studio in the heart of the Norwich Lanes the Geo Diamonds range is inspired by our love of jewellery as much as on-trend geometric shapes and we have based the range on our favourite cuts of diamonds. We also stock the designs in yellow and rose gold plating, something you may not realise we have! Our Amber collection also features some gold plated pieces if you are looking for an alternative gift for someone special. The gold really makes the amber tones stand out. We have matching sets, bangles, pendants and some pieces feature a mix of cognac, lemon and green amber. We hope you all manage to enjoy the last of the beautiful blooms as we think and start to head into autumn. Let’s all make the most of the weather, our gardens and wildlife before the season changes!

AUGUST GARDENING JOBS

www.icenimagazine.co.uk

Issue 64 2018

Wyevale Garden Centres Reveals:

Gardening Jobs Of The Month For August

David Mitchell

The UK’s gardeners are making the most of the August weather to spend time outdoors, but they should also be looking to the seasons ahead and begin preparing their garden for the colder spell.

There are plenty of jobs to keep you busy in the garden this month; it’s the perfect time of year to plant your winter vegetables and start cutting back and deadheading flowers to encourage continual healthy growth.

David Mitchell, buying manager for horticulture at Wyevale Garden Centres, shares his gardening jobs of the month, helping you to get one step closer to your dream back garden: 1. Safeguard your tomato plants Remove the lower level leaves from your tomato plant to help reduce its risk of disease and keep it thriving for longer. When a tomato plant’s growth is dense or when the leaves lie too close to the ground this can mean that the leaves are permanently in the shade. By removing the lower level leaves from the plant, the remaining leaves have more space and access to sunlight so are more likely to stay

drier and free from soil containing pathogens, thus they are more protected from disease. 2. Prune your perennial herbs Whether you’re looking to flavour your meat or garnish your cocktails, herbs are the plant of the moment and a fantastic addition to gardens of all sizes. Oregano and thyme are perennial herbs which mean they grow back each year without needing to be replanted. To promote their growth each year, trim them in August before the winter months hit to ensure they withstand the frost. 3. Plan ahead for gardening leave It is important not to leave your plants neglected while you are on holiday. A great way to make sure your plants are being watered without asking the neighbours to cover is to invest in a growbag waterer. Once set up, you can control the amount and frequency of water needed for your plants, leaving them perfectly hydrated without becoming waterlogged.

4. Lop back your lavender As with many blooms, it’s important to cut back lavender after its flowering period to promote new growth. Make sure you do so lightly to help maintain the plant’s well-rounded shape. You should be pruning around one third of the plant using a sharp, clean set of pruning shears. 5. Deadhead petunia and potted dahlias Deadheading ensures that plants maintain a healthy continual bloom and August is the ideal month to trim back potted petunias and dahlias. Plants such as dahlias have tough and stringy stems so opt for secateurs, scissors or knives when removing the flower heads. 6. Wind down for winter Use is month to plant your hardy vegetables such as broccoli, cabbage and Brussels sprouts, so they are ready to be harvested throughout the winter months. Make sure you plant in an open site with free-draining soil and cultivate before planting to ensure these vegetables have the best chance of growing.

Issue 64 2018

The Diary of a Norfolk Family By Mark King Where there’s food, there’s a Percy! That’s a new saying that I came up with over the last four weeks since we got our new member of the King family, Percy the dog. I’ve already thought of using this sentence in my third book of the Daniel Jones series Above: Mark King somewhere in the final quarter of the manuscript I am nearly finished. Percy knows just the right technique to pull at your heart strings and can hear the rustle of a food wrapper or the fridge door opening wherever he is in the house, and even when he is apparently asleep. Sunny, our cat that passed away earlier in the year, was quite refined when food was about. She would sit proudly on the floor near to the kitchen table with her back straight with a regal look on her face which said, “I won’t belittle myself by begging, but if you wish to spare a small piece of your meal with me, I might just think about it.” Percy the dog though has no qualms. He will get as close as possible to you and plonk his chin on your

leg, then look up to you with his gorgeous brown eyes through his bushy white eye brows and just beg, “please, please, please share you meal with me, I haven’t eaten for so long I can’t remember when last it was.” You look at his empty food bowl that only five minutes earlier had been placed on the floor brimming with the best pet food money can buy, and you just feel yourself giving in. My wife has more self-control than me and will not give in to Percy’s charm, and the children get a warful look if they too try to give him a morsel, and even I will get a warning shot across the table if I look like waving as well. But, and there’s always a but in life as Mary likes to say in my stories, I find a way of dropping the odd piece accidently on the floor that Percy will vacuum up quicker than a brand new Dyson! www.always-hanging-around.blogspot.com Follow on twitter: @author_king

An Evening With Cats 6:00pm: Walk in house to the delightful smell of cat poop. Scoop the poop out of the tray and am about to do a full litter when Lola climbs in for a piddle. Leave the tray for a bit and decide to have a cup of tea. 6:05pm: Ellie starts meowing aggressively for Above: Keri Beevis her dinner. Abandon cup of tea to feed her precious fluffy little butt. Watch as half the dinner is dragged out of the dish and through into the lounge - because apparently that is a more comfortable setting for dinner. 6:45pm: After finally getting my cup of tea, I return to the litter tray. Just as I empty it, Lola decides she needs to poop. She stands impatiently beside the tray, waiting and watching as she hops from one pussycat leg to another, and is in the tray doing her business before I have finished filling it up. 7:10pm: Ellie is almost out of her chill pills from the vet. I can get them online, so spend twenty minutes finding the best value site and ordering a bumper supply. While other girls in my office will be receiving exciting deliveries of clothes, perfume and books this week, I will be getting a bunch of pills

designed to chill out my cat so she stops weeing on the floor. 7:30pm: Time for Lola's eye drops. She guilted me into not giving them to her for a couple of days, but I must be strong. I try a sneak attack, but she figures me out and we end up wrestling for two minutes before I manage to get a drop in. She skulks to the corner of the room and gives me her best 'You're supposed to love me. How could you betray me like this?' stare out of one eye. 8:15pm: After consoling Lola with cuddles, kisses and fresh chicken, it's time to get my dinner. Ellie starts meowing aggressively as I open a tin of baked beans. Beev: You won't like this. Ellie: (In meow speak) I don't care. Let me try it. Beev holds baked beans out for Ellie to sniff at. She pretends to consider them before sticking her nose up and walking away. We repeat this routine with every ingredient. 9:00pm: The kitties are snoozing and I pour a glass of wine. I think this crazy cat lady has earned it. PAGE

NIBBLES & TIPPLES

Issue 64 2018

Nibbles &Tipples August Article By Cheryl Cade Only a few years ago, there was one lonely book that extolled the virtues of Beer and Food, Garrett Oliver’s ‘The Brew Masters Table’, which has now become the bible to a number of people, including myself.

But where it once sat forlorn on a shelf (with maybe an old book from Belgium containing the recipe for Beef in Beer), there is now an explosion of books along with websites, all guiding you on the best ways to incorporate your favourite tipple with your chosen nibble. So which books are currently sitting on my shelf?

An easy-to-read, good-looking book that can be dipped into is ‘On Beer And Food’ published

by Gestalten. Laid out in beer styles, it suggests which beers match with what and how to make a dish to match with each.

My favourite recipe from it is a pure indulgent pleasure: Chocolate Truffles.

4½oz of 65% Dark Chocolate; 50mls Double Cream; 2 tbsp Imperial Stout (Printers Ink from Allday Brewing); 1 tsp of Sea Salt Flakes and 4 tbsp Cocoa Powder. Melt gently the dark chocolate with the double cream and the Imperial Stout. Allow to cool for 30mins. Form into balls and coat with a mix of the crushed salt and Cocoa powder. Chill and serve at room temperature, with a stout or even a fruit beer. My go-to BBQ and more adventurous book is Paul Mercurio’s ‘Cooking with Beer’. A great

range of recipes from everyday one pots to something special.

I would suggest the BBQ ribs marinade: 3 spring onions (chopped); 1 tbsp of sesame oil; 2 crushed garlic cloves; 1 tsp of mustard and chilli paste; 3 tbsp of hoisin sauce; 3 tbsp of mango chutney; 1/2 tsp of salt; 1/4 tsp of black pepper and finally 125ml of a Malty Ale (think Woodforde’s Wherry, but try not to think of the scary Nelson that now adorns the bottle!). Mix it all together and rub into the ribs. Leave for 2 hours before cooking on your BBQ.

of the type but I would go for something strong and malty, like a barley wine, Lacons’ Audit Ale for example), 3/4 a cup of warm water and a pinch of salt. Mix all of this together and knead it until stretchy. Place in a warm bowl and allow to rise for 1 hour. Then knead it again and mould into your desired pizza shape. Add the toppings of your choice and cook at 240 or Gas 9 for about 10 mins. One of the perks of being the cook is that none of the dishes use all the beer, so… Cheers!

I have to thank a friend for the gift of my final book: ‘Beer & Food’ by Mark Dredge, a writer with a strong ‘Craft’ beer pedigree.

The book takes you more on a journey of discovery; you are given the tools and ideas before ending with recipes that are a good mix of traditional and modern.

Beer Pizza would be a hit with most people. 1 sachet of yeast is mixed with 4 cups of white bread flour, 1 dessertspoon of sugar, 1 fl oz of olive oil, 2/3 cup of beer (here there is no mention Twitter: @icenimagazine

MOTORING REVIEW

New Volvo V60 (2018-) Reviewed

Review By Tim Barnes-Clay, Motoring journalist Tweeting @carwriteups At first glance, you think the new Volvo V60 is the V90. Then you get closer and realise it's smaller than its brother. The cars look very similar, and that's a good thing because they're both handsome. If you put both models next to each other, I bet you'd agree with me that the V60 beats the

V90 in terms of attractiveness. Why? Because it's more compact and as a result, the car looks more taut and athletic. But the new estate has far more about it than sex appeal. The outgoing V60’s boot has been superseded by a load area that’s the biggest in its segment. Open the tailgate, and 539 litres of cargo capacity greets you. Crucially, the fresh V60 beats its German foes in this area. The BMW 3 Series Touring’s boot only offers 495 litres and Audi’s

MOTORING REVIEW

www.icenimagazine.co.uk

Issue 64 2018

A4 Avant manages just 505-litres. The Swede is longer than the Audi and BMW too, meaning there’s decent room for four adult occupants. A fifth person could squeeze into the middle of the back seat, but a prominent transmission tunnel hump hampers legroom. In the front, all looks classy and relaxed, with a dashboard that is mainly digital. There’s not as much metal or wood in the V60 when compared with the V90 - instead, you get soft plastics. However, this doesn’t rain on the parade - everything still looks solid and well screwed together. Behind the wheel, the new V60 is planted and comfy. I was handed the keys to the 190PS 2.0-litre four-cylinder D4 model. The diesel engine pulls like a train with zero to 62mph arriving in 7.9 seconds. Top speed is 137mph. It’s an efficient unit too, returning a claimed average of 61.4mpg. The new estate car's ride is excellent, primarily due to the flexible suspension system, and the steering weights up well from 40mph. These two things alone make the 2018 model V60 a delight to drive. It's entirely suited to the UK's roads, making it an ideal commuting machine. Thanks to its general roominess, it’s also a perfect family vehicle.

Pros ‘n’ Cons

The new Volvo V60’s spec is a bit of a downer. From launch, there are only two levels of trim Momentum and Inscription. Happily, the more athletic R-Design and elevated Cross-Country variants will soon join the party.

• Handsome √ • Comfortable √ • Powerful √ • Efficient √ • Pricey options X

And while the V60 is well kitted-out with features like LED headlights, sat-nav and a portrait touchscreen, other alluring accessories, such as semi-autonomous driving aids and Apple CarPlay, are on the options list. These can make an already costly car even more expensive to buy or lease. Still, you should have the V60 on your shopping list if an estate car is what you're after - especially one as eye-catching and accommodating as this.

Fast Facts (Volvo V60 D4 Momentum Pro - as tested) • Max speed: 137 mph • 0-62 mph: 7.9 secs • Combined mpg: 61.4 • Engine layout: 2.0-litre four-cylinder diesel turbo • Max. power (PS): 190 • CO2: 119 g/km • Price: £36,350 PAGE

Plan Your Social Media Vacation It's Summer and we've got a heatwave! With the schools breaking up it's holiday season. But if you manage social media, it can be hard to take that much needed break regardless of if you're part of a team or it's just you! Everyone deserves the time to unwind, de-tech yourself and recharge your batteries, so you can come back to work refreshed and ready to take on anything. So, what tips have I got to help your holiday actually happen? Plan ahead Whether you’re on holiday for a few days or a few weeks, you need to prepare - whether you're

part of a team or a lone social media manager (most of us are), make sure you're fully aware of what you've got lined up - this could be a promotion or an event, as this will form the basis of any scheduled content you might decide to post over your holiday period. Then, schedule any social content across your platforms that doesn't necessarily require immediate responses from you while you're away - so promotional or informative content, nothing that'll directly start a conversational thread. There's a variety of free & paid scheduling applications out there that'll allow you to do this for most of the main social media platforms like Twitter, Facebook & Instagram. If you have someone lined up, ready to look after your social media while you're away, don't

forget to give them a handy reference guide detailing logins, applications used, any social media guidelines and useful contacts. They'll appreciate it! And, if you have time make sure you've given them a good demo of what you use. If it's just you - then consider just letting your followers know that you'll be away so a response might not be as quick as normal. Twitter allows you to 'Pin' a tweet to the top of your feed, which can be helpful in these situations. Your Holiday - Option 1 'Cold Turkey' The thought of 'no contact' seems too scary but it's worth it, especially if it's been a busy period. So, remove all chat-based apps like Slack, WhatsApp or Messenger and then sign out of your social accounts. That way you can keep your phone without all the annoying distractions! If that all sounds too drastic and it's brought you out in a cold sweat, there is another option, but it requires discipline. Your Holiday - Option 2 'Dip your toe in' The key to this option is discipline. Set yourself specific 'check-in' times with set time restraints - this might be daily or less frequent - that's entirely up to you. Engage with your followers just for that period. It's tough and can be hard to manage, but if you're on holiday with someone else maybe get them to keep an eye on your time - as they certainly won't want you on your phone for lengthy periods of time! Post Holiday Ease yourself in gradually to your social, don't make your holiday a distant memory. Summary Hopefully these snippets of advice might make your holiday the holiday it should be - relaxing!!

The devices are paired using low power Bluetooth virtually guaranteeing a long battery life of at least a year. You can also assign a ringtone to the device which will help you recognise it in a noisy room.

the position to your account. You can also share your Chipolo with other users where the item is precious or might be something available to more than one person. Now, getting to the nitty gritty of losing personal items. Being easily distracted, I am constantly looking for my keys or wallet and with this in mind, the Chipolos have been amazing! I have a habit of leaving my wallet in my bag and then spending half an hour trying to remember where it is! Problem solved! Now all I need to do it press the RING button on my phones Chipolo Widget and immediately I can hear it ring. So, armed with by trusty Chipolo and smart phone, no more losing my wallet around the house. There are also some nice little touches too; you can also use the Chipolo to trigger the camera on your smartphone to take selfies. Position the phone, get comfortable with your friends, double click the button on the tracker and hey presto! Instant Selfie. But, what about REALLY losing something, away from home? Well, I have experienced this too. Whilst the Chipolo app happily provides tracking for your own devices, it also

monitors for devices that have been lost by other users on the network. So, should you lose your item and searching for it using the app proves fruitless, you can then mark the item as LOST. Should another Chipolo user happen to pass within range of the tracker, it notifies the owner that it has been found and provides feedback to the person that found it! It's a great use of 'crowd' networking or as Chipolo call it "Community Search". The Chipolo Card gives you a device that fits easily into your wallet or purse, being 2.15mm. It has a 200ft range from your smart device, the speaker is 95dB. The battery will last a year and the device is water-resistant. Priced at around ÂŁ25, I think they are great value. Look out for the new 'FRUIT' editions. Review By Matt Porter The Gadget Man www.thegadgetman.org.uk PAGE

Looking For A Cheaper Holiday This Year? With many more parents receiving a fine for a term time holiday, it’s no surprise that lots of families are looking for a cheaper alternative to a holiday abroad. One alternative, which is coming back in popularity is to go away in this country in a caravan or a tent which can cost as little as £15 a night! Generally, I am not a camping person. I’ve never liked the idea of trying to navigate your way to the toilet block in the middle of the night, but these days, camping can be as basic or glamourous as you like!

We had a long weekend recently and decided to go away camping. We loaded up the car with our 12-man tent (for the 4 of us! Although really it would only comfortably sleep 6) and set on our way. The great thing about camping is you can be half an hour down the road, but feel like you are much further away! Even the initial set up cost doesn’t have to be expensive. We found our large tent on an online marketplace for just £40! This is the second time we have been camping with this tent. The first was at the end of September last year, and the weather was

considerably better this time! We practised putting the tent up beforehand, and as we ended up setting up on a drizzly afternoon, it was time well spent! This time, we believed we could remember the process without a practice, so with the kids happily entertained with a DVD, we made a start! After much discussion, we decided on a plot, and started rotating the tent into position. After even more discussion, we started to try and insert the poles. It was at this stage that we realised a practice would have been helpful, as the tent was upside down! Not surprisingly, it was a lot quicker to put up when it was the right way up! Without the practice, we found ourselves with complaining children, the dog trying to escape through the car window and bordering on divorce (joking of course)!. However, after this short 30 minutes (that felt like hours), we had a tent which was set up, the kids were running around in and out of the tent, happily chatting away to each other and we were setting up the ‘pods’ with the inflatable beds, kitchen area (for those all-important bacon baps for breakfast) and the children’s toy area. Within an hour of arriving, we were ready to go and explore with the family.

What we love about camping is the ease of it all. It’s reasonably priced, you’re away from home somewhere different and you can have that all important family time. The atmosphere was electric (this may also be due to the world cup being on and England reaching the knock out stages!) but it had a nice buzz - you felt on your own enough but when you wanted to take in the atmosphere you could hear the children playing, chatter from other families and smell the numerous BBQs around the site.

Our top 5 tips for camping are: 1. Practise, practise, practise - until you are completely sure you can do your tent easily. 2. Bring something for the kiddies to do when you are setting up/packing away and incase of a rainy day - you don’t want them stuck in the car bored or running around so you have to keep checking where they are when you are trying to set up! 3. Don’t pack too much - it’s easy to get carried away, with all the extra accessories, but if you forget something, or have to change plans, that’s part of the adventure! 4. Take a heater/fan - the temperature can vary massively in a tent so plan for each extreme. 5. Check out the campsite - there are some great forums online with people sharing past experiences, and the camp site we’ve visited have been very accommodating with any requests. We’d love to hear your camping tips! Let us know at: www.seewhatmummysays.com And @whatmummysaysuk Thanks for reading! Becca x PAGE

Toots & The Maytals Announce Norwich - UEA (The LCR) Show Taking Place On Sunday 14Th October 2018!

Toots and The Maytals, one of the alltime great reggae, ska and rocksteady groups, will tour the UK in October 2018. The eleven-date tour will start at the O2 Institute Birmingham on Wednesday 10th October and ends on Saturday, 27th October at the Cheese & Grain in Frome. The Maytals, led by the irrepressible force of nature Frederick ‘Toots’ Hibbert, formed in Kingston, Jamaica, in 1961.

Across six decades, Toots’ raw, gospel-infused vocals and life-affirming music has influenced countless artists, including The Specials, The Clash and Amy Winehouse, and has toured with the likes of The Rolling Stones, Dave Matthews, Sheryl Crow and Los Lonely Boys. A five-time Grammy nominee, Toots & The Maytals won the 2005 Grammy Award for Best Reggae album with True Love.

The album featured re-recorded classic hits alongside popular and legendary artists, including Willie Nelson, Eric Clapton, Bonnie Raitt, Keith Richards, No Doubt, Ben Harper, The Roots and Shaggy. Looking forward to his return to the UK, Toots said, “The UK is a home from home for Toots and The Maytals, so we’re looking forward to seeing all our friends during our tour. To bring joy with my music is my greatest aspiration. We give 100 percent every night, and our fans give us that energy right back every time.” Toots and The Maytals’ October tour will follow the group’s already-announced date at London’s Alexandra Palace on September 8th.

Q

&A

WITH SARA PASCOE Sara Pascoe is touring LadsLadsLads Sunday 16th September Wednesday 28th November 2018 www.sarapascoe.com • Sara, what is your show LadsLadsLads about? Why is it described as a ‘thinking person’s stag-do’? It’s sometimes hard to summarise what a show is about - but I wanted to give people the sense that it is fun and celebratory - but rather than about being about to get married - the exact opposite. Having fun, trying new things in a way of being braver and more self-reliant. Some of my shows in the past have had serious aspects, theories and research and this one is lighter. It’s like a party, except only I get to talk and you have to sit there watching me.

• Are you excited or daunted by going back on tour? I love going on tour. I love our nation, I love rainy days up north and cold evenings by the seaside. It’s a luxury to get to travel for one’s job and it’s still a novelty for me. Ask me again in twenty years! • You’re touring from September until the end of November. Do you see the show developing throughout the tour? As my comedy is personal there are always updates; this show develops with recent

escapades - my friends can persuade me to do anything by saying “you’ll get 5 minutes out of it”. That’s how I was recently tricked into watching a West Ham football match and seeing the film It. They were both equally scary and I got exactly zero minutes out of them. • Tell us about your new book Sex Power Money, which is out next spring. It’s about porn and sex work from a historical and evolutionary perspective. I am taking biology and the plasticity of human sexuality into account, and also laying out the whole spectrum of arguments in the debate about these aspects of our society. I’m also trying to explore power dynamics in sexual exchanges which are not as clearly defined as paying for sex - things like men paying for dinner, the abuse by powerful, rich men such as Weinstein and Trump. But with jokes as with my last book, Animal. Talking about serious, important stuffbut keeping it accessible and stimulating rather than hectoring. • Did the experience of writing a book change the way you approach comedy? Writing a book has changed my stand up; I think I’m funnier now because I can spend more time with ideas for the books. After a day’s writing doing a gig is a release. I only want to be silly, and it doesn’t feel as selfish if that makes sense? Comedy feels like a child’s job, you can’t believe you’re getting paid to do it. But there are huge things going on in the world and sometimes you feel a responsibility - because you’ve a mic in your hand. But now my responsible side who cares about the state of the world can go into book writing and stand up can be a distraction from that. • Tell us about your recent Radio 4 series Modern Monkey where you explore our modern social world. Did you enjoy the research involved? Yes. I wish it had been more scientific and I could’ve done more research - but I kept being

reminded it was supposed to be a comedy show and I had to write jokes about things. We recorded the show at several museums and I was so interested to visit and learn - especially the Foundling Museum - something I knew nothing about. Such a tragic thing - mothers giving away their children because they cannot afford to support them. • Do you think the world of comedy has changed much since you started? I think audiences are changing and that directly influences the acts. Comedy used to be a crueller place, and while there is still lots of that kind of stuff (and lots of people who love it) there is a lot more diversity now. And I hope that continues. Live comedy is flourishing within an economic downturn and that is because the people making jokes are from a much wider spectrum. Their experiences are fresh and exciting and audiences want that. It’s not the individual cis, white, able bodied man’s fault that historically, comedy clubs were so reliant on stereotype and tropes, but only one type of person’s reality was being reflected and I’m glad that’s improving. • Do you have a career highlight? Is there a moment you stopped and thought, “Wow, this is just incredible”? Getting to write books is a massive privilege. Whenever I do a book signing, that for me is a “pinch myself” moment. Also selling out a West End run - those theatres are an absolute joy to play and it felt like a victory lap. I felt so much love for every person in the audience and wanted to kiss and hug everyone. I am a failed actor, didn’t get into drama school all of that malarkey. So getting to be in the West End was so special to me, a validation. • What’s next for you following the tour? I’d like to go do some stand up in America, and hopefully do some writing for TV. And another play. And I want to get a dog. And then more adventures so I can write another show. PAGE
