Welcome! Welcome to the Sherwood Life magazine.
Many of us often feel that there aren’t enough hours in the day to do what we need to — let alone feel like that we have the space to enable us to do the things that we really want to. Fortunately, we’re given more daylight hours and the two bank holidays as gifts this month. If you’re feeling stressed or under pressure, often striving for perfection in your projects or even everyday tasks can seem daunting. With the rise of social media, we have a 24-hour window in to the lives of our families, friends and even celebrities and it can often seem that many are leading ‘perfect’ lives, while you juggle yours. Chanel Hosfield gives us all some helpful advice on page 44. Finding new ways to relax and destress can help us all and the warmer weather naturally leads us to spend

DUKERIES ACADEMY CHOIR ‘LIVE AT LUNCH’ ON 27TH MARCH, The Dukeries Academy choir took part in the ‘Live at Lunch’ concert at Nottingham Royal Concert Hall. The journey started at Dukeries where they performed and took part in a workshop by a professional National Youth Choir participant. Students then worked with a professional vocalist on a full choir performance, learning two pieces and choreography in an hour. The choir showed amazing composure to hold their harmonies to deliver a memorable performance.
FRENCH FILM NIGHT
OUR KEY STAGE 4 Languages students have been immersing themselves in French culture at our inaugural “French Film Night”, watching ‘Intouchables’. Not only a good way to relax, but also to practice listening skills for their GCSE exams. We are looking forward to making this a more regular occurrence!

Links with Russell Group Universities are ever strengthening at The Dukeries Academy with applications to and offers from some of the best universities in the world, such as Cambridge and Oxford, increasing year-on-year.
OUR FABULOUSLY creative students celebrated World Book Day with a ‘Book Bake Off’, making tasty treats inspired by their favourite fiction texts including “What The Ladybird Said” and the Harry Potter series. We were incredibly impressed with the number and quality of entries and we certainly had a very enjoyable day tasting the cakes and marvelling at the momentous effort that made us very proud of our students.

The history of the Mayﬂower The voyage took more than two months and was beset by severe storms The famous ship which carried the Pilgrim Fathers to the New World is celebrating its 400th anniversary this year, with a programme of over 400 events planned along what is now known as the Mayﬂower Trail. Since 1919, the mayﬂower has been the official state ﬂower of Massachusetts, USA after its namesake, a ship called the Mayﬂower, made history by landing there almost exactly 400 years ago on 27th November 1620. The Mayﬂower was carrying 102 Puritans who had embarked at Plymouth, England to sail to what became known as Plymouth, New England in America for a new life. Puritans were a specific sect of English Protestants who had become disillusioned with the Church of England and wanted to ‘purify’ Christianity according to the teachings of John Calvin, a Swiss Protestant reformer. The Puritans that travelled to the New World were a splinter group of separatists known as Saints who sought to create a new church rather than reform the Church of England. The Mayﬂower was a large 17th century English merchant ship with a square rig and a beakhead bow. It had a cargo capacity of 180 tons, ideal for all the Pilgrims’ belongings, livestock and the food and drink they needed at sea.
Mayﬂower in Plymouth Harbor by William Halsall, 1882 8 May 2019
The ship was part-owned and captained by Christopher Jones Jr., who managed the crew of around 30, while Puritan elders William Bradford and William Brewster led the Pilgrims. The Mayﬂower’s voyage was delayed after a ship from Holland, the Speedwell, originally set to accompany them, developed a series of leaks and had to return for repairs. Eventually, the Mayﬂower was forced to set sail on its own on 16th September 1620. Due to their late departure, the voyage took more than two months and was beset by severe storms. Prevailing westerly winds forced them to land at Cape Cod rather than their original destination of Virginia, where they had been granted a plantation settlement by the Virginia Company. The ship arrived in the dead of a New England winter. The passengers weren’t prepared and only half of them survived, the rest dying of malnutrition, exposure and disease. Despite being forced to steal food from the natives on arrival (which it is said they paid back six months later), they were helped by the local Wampanoag tribe who taught them how to hunt, gather shellfish
and grow corn and vegetables. Eventually, the Pilgrims established a colony at what they named Plymouth, with every member contributing to the community through the Mayﬂower Compact — a 200-word document that was drafted on their arrival by the elders. Described as a ‘civil body politick’ with ‘just and equal laws’, it formed the framework for democratic government in the USA. The granite slab upon which it is said the Pilgrim Fathers first set foot is now protected and commemorated as Plymouth Rock. A replica of The Mayﬂower (Mayﬂower II) that sailed the same route is now permanently on display in Plymouth Harbour, Massachusetts. Today, it is believed that 30 million US citizens are descended from the Pilgrim Fathers.

People often ask what Inner
Wheel ladies do and members of the Warsop club try to tell them. It always starts with we have lots of fun and friendship, whilst helping others that have a genuine need. Very few people ask members why they do what we do, but that is the hardest question to answer. They have come up with this explanation: “Inner Wheel is special. We are a group of busy ladies who serve the community, who enjoy giving to others, who enjoy friendships new and old, we enjoy the spice of life and a diversity that gives our life ﬂavour.” What they do would actually take for ever to tell you, but in a nutshell they ‘do’ different activities and events that enables members to choose what they would like to join in with — which often includes social gatherings and fundraising for various charities and trips to places of interest. They welcome new ideas and new members from all walks of life. As a member you are certainly not expected to do everything,

Variety, the spice of life you can do as much or as little as your time, your money and your interests allow. Recent activities have included a fantastic Craft and Crumpet night organised by President Ruth, a visit to the Aquabox Warehouse in Wirksworth, Derbyshire and a trip to The Nottingham Belfry for the celebration of the 47th Annual Rally of the District, D22. District Chairman Linda did an excellent job of organising a wonderful day, where almost 200 ladies pledged to serve their community, true friends and international causes.
Annual Viking Spring Thing
Join The Friends of Thynghowe at
Sherwood Pines over the weekend of 11th and 12th May, when the brilliant re-enactors of Regia Anglorum will be returning to Sherwood, for the annual Viking Spring Thing. Throughout each day there will be displays by warriors in the arena, culminating in a major battle the afternoon. You can also experience the calmer side of the Viking Age by wandering around the authentic living history camp watching demonstrations of a wide range of crafts and chatting to the experts about their skills. You can celebrate Sherwood’s rich Viking heritage between 10.00am and 4.00pm on each day. This is a free

event although the usual Sherwood Pines parking charges apply. The Spring Thing is one of Regia Anglorum’s major events, attracting re-enactors for all over the country to one of their favourite venues. Last year around 80 warriors were battling in the arena and it is hoped that they all survived to return this year! The Spring Thing is organised by the Forestry Commission, Regia Anglorum and The Friends of Thynghowe. The era they are celebrating began in the year 865, when the Viking Great Heathen Army invaded. After occupying York in 866 they moved south to Nottingham in 867 where they

After a negotiated withdrawal back to York they established winter camps alongside the River Trent at Torksey and Repton, before moving south to Wessex for the battles against King Alfred’s army. The Friends of Thynghowe is a local history group involved in organising events to share the heritage of northern Sherwood. Thynghowe is a Viking Age site on the borders of Warsop, Budby and Edwinstowe where ‘Thing’ assemblies would have been held by the Danish Vikings who settled in the area following the invasion.

The modern bedroom that are gorgeous to look at and soft to the touch. You can use plain white as the basics, just adding a stunning throw, blanket, eiderdown or quilt — or several — for eye-catching colour and pattern. Or go for broke and put colour with colour and plains with patterns for layered vibrancy. TAKE THE FLOOR In a bedroom where wear and tear is not a factor, luxurious, deep-pile carpet is an option. If that’s beyond your budget, consider sanding back your ﬂoorboards and either varnishing or painting them, then adding a rug or two in a bold, modern style. LIGHTS FANTASTIC Lighting should be subtle and ﬂattering. Make it adaptable with table or ﬂoor lamps in corners and fitting a dimmer switch to the central pendant. Choose warm white, energysaving LED bulbs that are not overly bright. For bedside reading, a pair of swing-arm, wall-mounted lights frees up bedside table space, or hang a bare filament bulb from a coloured cotton ﬂex suspended from the ceiling or a wall-mounted bracket.
Does your bedroom look
a little dated, or is it brimming with contemporary style? We outline some quick and easy ways in which to give it a brand new look. Your bedroom is your own personal space, and the ideal room in which to express your personality, so why not consider a top-to-toe makeover? A POP OF COLOUR Bold colours are on trend this spring, often quite dark and moody, and where better than a bedroom to go for this dark décor? Use fuchsia, turquoise, emerald, orange, mustard or deep blue in arresting combinations or perhaps just cover one wall with a strong 12 May 2019
shade. Even the addition of a bright headboard, rug, throw or group of cushions can make a difference. ON THE WALLS Experiment with paint colours by using a tester pot to cover a large sheet of card, then stick it to different walls at various times of the day so you can see how the colour changes. Alternatively use patterned wallpaper, all over or just on a feature wall. Or opt for a wallsized mural of, for example, a wooded glade, tropical palms, a cityscape, oversized ﬂowers or a starry night sky. BEAUTIFUL BED LINEN Introduce sumptuous bed linens
HOW TO UPDATE YOUR FURNITURE Improve or disguise wardrobes, chests of drawers, blanket boxes and bookcases that are oldfashioned, overly bulky or just not quite right. Paint works wonders but is inadvisable on anything antique. Sand thoroughly, undercoat and cover with a top coat, choosing either a colour that will stand out or — to minimise a piece’s look — the same colour as the wall behind. It’s also possible to paste wallpaper (or wrapping paper, maps, sheet music, posters…) onto the ﬂat panels of wooden furniture, painting the rest of the piece in a co-ordinating colour. Change knobs or handles, or even feet or legs, for something sleek and modern

The village of Wellow will once
more celebrate the arrival of spring, whatever the weather, on the Late Spring Bank Holiday Monday 27th May. Maypole Day is unique in Nottinghamshire — a traditional family friendly event centred around the village’s spectacular 17 metres high painted maypole on the village green. The Maypole Celebrations have been a feature of Wellow village life for well over a hundred years, and the size of the event and the range of attractions is always a surprise to those new to the event!

Wellow maypole celebrations the first time, giving ﬂying and static demonstrations on the maypole green during the afternoon. Following the children’s procession from St Swithin’s Church, the main focus of Maypole Day is, of course, the crowning of the new May Queen. After this, the children perform the variety of intricate maypole dances they have learnt in the weeks leading up to the big day. Providing fun and mischief will be Wellow Jack and his accompanying ‘Bogies’. Apart from all this excitement, there will be live music, traditional Punch

Hot and cold food is available throughout the afternoon, including delicious homemade cakes from the renowned cake stall in the village hall. Join the fun from 12.00pm to 5.00pm. Admission is free, but the organisers do hope you will buy a programme and some rafﬂe tickets to help fund next year’s event. Parking is available at Wellow Dam and Wellow House School. See you on 27th May. £20.00 Coop voucher which has increased from the original £10.00 voucher.

Rotary Club of Sherwood Forest February saw the Rotary Club of
Sherwood Forest celebrate Valentine’s with their family and friends at their regular meeting place, South Forest Leisure Centre, when they had a quiz, poems and a very nice meal — a brilliant evening enjoyed by all. The club often have great social evenings like this — it’s not all fundraising! Local crime author Trevor Negus visited the club at the end of February and after enjoying dinner with them he told them all about his three existing thrillers already in print and in ebook form and explained about his forthcoming book The Root of All Evil, due out very soon. All the books are based locally, and this makes them even more interesting to the reader. March saw another couple of great evenings learning about the Webb family of Newstead, followed by Peter Young, a local auctioneer who regaled Rotarians with the tale of how he got into the business and anecdotes from his career banging the gavel.
Ollerton St George’s Day celebrations and the annual golf tournament. This year the Duck Race will have a different format, but you will still be able to bet on the duck you think will cross the line first — see the club by the river on the day and cheer those ducks on. There will also be face painting by Rotarians Sue and Denise, always a favorite for the kids. The 10th May sees the annual golf tournament at Rufford Park Golf Course. Local businesses and groups sponsor holes and put up teams for this increasingly popular charity event. If anyone has a team, please contact email@example.com.

In 1998, barely seven years after
independence, a new capital rose in Kazakhstan in the middle of the steppes on the banks of the Ishim River. Planned by the Japanese architect Kisho Kurokawa, it grew into a futuristic dream, replacing Almaty, the former capital enclosed by mountains with little room for expansion and prone to natural disasters. Today, with over one million people sharing 100 nationalities, Astana is the northernmost capital in Asia and the second coldest in the world. Although much of the old town still spreads along the right bank, the new capital across the water dazzles everyone with innovative architecture, wide avenues and open spaces and parks. Day or night, the central Nurzhol Boulevard is a wonderful place for a stroll, a wide traffic-free oasis full of greenery, fountains and flowers and traditional sculptures, here a shaman, there a dancer or a nomad. Stretching for over two kilometres towards the riverside presidential headquarters, it is dominated by the Bayterek Tower, the top attraction in Astana.
Astonishing Astana, Kazakhstan It’s easy to see why — rising to 97 metres, this lofty monument is crowned by a 300 tonne glass ball where colours change according to the natural light. Bayterek, they say, is a ‘tree of life’, clutching an ‘egg’ between its branches to ensure a peaceful and prosperous future. It is truly enticing and up on the top, inspired no doubt by the wonderful views, many visitors make a wish, eyes closed as they place their hand in the president’s golden print. Away from the river, the boulevard opens onto a vast circular space leading to fine outdoor restaurants and flower shops and an archway framing the Khan Shatyr centre, an indoor place for souvenir and other stores, as well as family amusements — including a beach covered with sand from the Maldives. But most exciting is the actual building, moulded like a giant steel yurt, gleaming white, slightly topsy-turvy, and one of Norman Foster’s landmarks. Bold and dynamic, the new Astana
also pays tribute to its roots, be it in the museums, the stark blue Palace of Independence or the Central Concert Hall, where the main room is shaped like a dombyra lute, Kazakhstan’s national instrument. Sculptures of Samruk, the mythical bird, pop up here and there to protect the country. In 1999, UNESCO declared Astana a ‘City of Peace’, a theme upheld in the newly-erected Peace Wall, inscribed with the word ‘peace’ in 51 languages, and the glass pyramid, known as the Palace of Peace and Reconciliation. There a stained glass painting displays 130 doves symbolising cultural and religious tolerance. Islam is the main religion, open and relaxed for most followers, and with its white minarets and domes, the iconic Hazrat Sultan mosque claims the largest complex of its kind in Central Asia. Inaugurated in 2012, it was named after a 12th century poet and mystic, linking past and present in one of the youngest capitals in the world.

Edwinstowe unveils a lasting monument to commemorate the centenary year of remembrance The Edwinstowe Royal
British Legion, together with the community group formed to run a village remembrance project, saw the conclusion of an important objective during April. The Legion started with a plan to commemorate the centenary year of remembrance back in August of 2017. They sent two of their representatives to the Grand Pilgrimage in the summer of 2018, where the battlefields of The Somme, Passchendaele and Ypres were all visited, and respects were shown to the many thousands of men and women who gave their lives during the period 1914 to 1918. This four-day event concluded with a large parade to the Menin Gate, where the Edwinstowe wreath was laid, along with over 1,000 others. Beyond this formal remembrance event, the people of Edwinstowe quickly got behind a proposal to leave a more enduring token of remembrance in the village. It was agreed that they would raise funds to place a granite memorial stone to commemorate the sacrifice made by over 30 of our local men, who’s names are shown on the white granite memorial cross at the
Edwinstowe garden of remembrance. With the support of several groups, including the Thoresby Football Club, the Golf Society, the Edwinstowe Co-op, the Forterra company and many more, the group quickly realised the funds and support necessary to make this objective a reality. They wish to give their special thanks to their friends at the Hammer and Wedge, who have accommodated various fundraising events over the past year. On 16th March, despite the prevailing bad weather and the threat of strong wind and rain, the new memorial was unveiled by the chair of Newark and Sherwood District Council, Councillor Keith Walker. Also, present was the chair of Nottinghamshire County Council, Councillor Sue Saddington, together with supporting officers of both major councils. Also in attendance, was the County Representative from the Nottinghamshire RBL. The Reverend Ian Webb, vicar of Clipstone, Edwinstowe and Perlethorpe, gave the blessing prayer and the exhortation from the Laurence Binyon poem. Fortunately, the weather improved for the actual unveiling and several dozen members of the community witnessed the new memorial,

The Legion were very well supported by the village-based Scouts, Guides, Brownies and other youth groups who, as always, attend remembrance events in the full colour of their uniforms and with enthusiasm to join in — thank you to you all. During the next few weeks and months, the Legion hope that you will take the opportunity of visiting the garden and viewing the new memorial. And finally, can they thank, once again the many groups and people in our community who gave freely of their time and money to ensure this project came to a successful outcome.

The house is a forgotten Georgian gem, designed by Adam and furnished by Chippendale and others. Their Wednesday 5th June lecture by Mary Yule is called ‘A view from the Plinth: a review of contemporary public sculpture’. The lecture offers a light-hearted but critical review of public sculpture today. The society meets at the Civic Centre, Long Lane, Carlton-inLindrick S81 9AP. Coffee is served from 10.00am and the monthly lecture is from 11.00am to 12.00pm approximately. There is free car parking.

Can we afford to relax fracking regulations? The fracking gas companies have
recently been pursuing an aggressive media and publicity campaign to get the Government to relax the 0.5 level seismic regulation — a limit they agreed at the outset but now state is making fracking production unworkable. A number of academics signed a paper saying it was safe to increase this limit. It later transpired that almost all had connections and links to the industry. A second article signed by a similar number of academics with no connection immediately countered their arguments, and said it was unsafe. At Preston New Road we saw the size of seismic events steadily increased until it got to a level where Cuadrilla stopped drilling. The real issue with seismic events is the possibility of the loss of integrity of well casings which pass through our aquifers and potential fluid migration. Do we really want to increase the limit and allow more seismic events and earthquakes to take place unchecked? In 2011, Cuadrilla’s well at Preece Hall suffered a loss of integrity after shocks of 1.8 and 2.1. According to ‘The Independent’, UK taxpayer’s money, meant to support overseas development, has been spent on supporting the Chinese fracking industry. After drilling 1,000 wells, China has now suspended all fracking in the Sichuan Province after the latest in a number of earthquakes killed two people. We are being fed information to make it seem as though shale gas

will yield massive returns in the UK. In Lancashire, Cuadrilla distributed a video showing gas being burnt in a flare on the site describing it as “significant” and “providing early encouragement”. It later transpired that the volumes were so low they had to feed in propane as a support fuel to light the flare. Were they just desperate to give their investors good news? INEOS claimed, “readings taken at a fracking site at Tinker Lane near Barnby Moor could be enough to keep the whole country supplied with natural gas for 29 years — the equivalent value of a trillion dollars”. In a recent letter from the Environmental Agency, the Area Director for the East Midlands refers to the Tinker Lane site and states “During the drilling operation IGas have not found the Bowland Shale”. Finding the Bowland Shale is the only way that the levels of gas quoted by INEOS could be realised. Was this another good news story to keep the Investors on board and to maintain any remaining vestiges of credibility the industry may have? If you want to join the Frack Free Sherwood Forest and Edwinstowe group and assist their campaign against fracking, members meet on the first Monday of the month at 7.30pm in Suite 2 Old Station, High Street, Edwinstowe NG21 9HS. Pauline Meechan Frack Free Sherwood Forest and Edwinstowe you will be made most welcome, even if you only want to attend for a natter or the company.

Too old to be behind the wheel? At what age should you stop
Equally, stories are trotted out by those wishing freedom of the road claiming that they have a relative, aged over 90, who regularly drives and is safer on the road than many 20-somethings. What can’t be ignored is that, with age, our reactions slow down, our eyesight and hearing are impaired and we are prone to restricted movement. But, as a counterbalance, older drivers take fewer risks, don’t tend to speed and have more experience.
driving? The recent accident involving the 97-year-old Duke of Edinburgh brought this question into sharp focus. Royalty or commoner, it must be a wrench to give up your licence, not just because of the loss of independence, but because it’s a sure sign age is catching up on you. Every time there is an incident involving an elderly driver there are calls for an age cap to be placed on holding a driving licence.

So, a one-size-fits-all cap to holding a licence will not be a universally accepted solution. My stance is that there should not be a statutory age-limit to holding a driving licence, but there should be a system in place that, when you reach 70, requires you to do more than ‘self-certify’ every three years, that you are okay to drive. Of course, with the imminent arrival of driverless cars on our roads, this debate could well be null-and-void — at least until the annual London-toBrighton vintage car run…

Edwinstowe Initiative to tackle underage Historical Society drinking awarded Project of the Year
On Wednesday 20th March, members of the Edwinstowe Historical Society and visitors spent an enjoyable afternoon in the company of Jo Golby, who described the life of a lady’s maid when working in the great houses of the 19th century. Considered to be the equivalent of the master’s valet, she was expected to be educated, discreet, honest and have exceptional needlework skills. Duties would include helping to dress and undress her mistress (sometimes three or four times a day according to the occasion); ensure all clothes were kept in immaculate condition; and know how to fashion her hair in the latest style. The day would begin one hour before her mistress arose and terminate one hour after her mistress retired which might be 3.00am or 4.00am! She would enjoy the privacy of her own room with her own personal effects, and travel with her mistress on visits to other houses. Her wage would be between £34.00 and £36.00 per annum, with board, and often she would receive her mistress’s cast-off clothing. Sometimes a grace and favour cottage would be her reward when she was retired. The Annual General Meeting of the society will take place on Wednesday 16th May, which will be followed by a Powerpoint presentation highlighting the ladies’ and men’s bowling teams in Edwinstowe. On Wednesday 20th June, there will be a Powerpoint presentation outlining the history of the Edwinstowe Women’s Institute which was founded in 1920. Meetings are held in the Church Rooms, Mansfield Road, Edwinstowe NG21 9NJ on the third Wednesday of the month, commencing at 2.00pm and lasting for approximately two hours. Tea/coffee and biscuits are available. The annual membership is £12.00 and visitors are welcome at a charge of £3.00. Further information is available on the website www.edwinstowehistory. org.uk and enquiries may be made to EdwinstoweHistorySoc@gmail.com. 34 May 2019
A new initiative to tackle underage drinking and anti-social behaviour has been recognised for its work using physical activity to help improve the lives, health and wellbeing of young people in Newark and Sherwood. Ollerton, Boughton and Edwinstowe Community Alcohol Partnership (CAP) was launched in in October last year as part of Newark and Sherwood District Council’s Cleaner, Safer and Greener campaign and was awarded Project of the Year in the inaugural Notts Getting Active Together awards. The scheme was set up to reduce the sale of alcohol to young people, advise them on the dangers of drinking and provide alcohol-free activities through youth services and local charities. CAPs, which have been established in other parts of the UK, are made up of retailers, local authorities, police, schools, neighbourhood groups and health providers that work together with the aim of educating young people, adults, licensees and retailers. As a main component of the initiative, diversionary activities that involve physical activity have been set up to create new opportunities for young people that they would not normally have access to. Active4Today, Nottingham Forest Community Trust, Active Notts and
the Nottinghamshire youth service are among the partners involved in creating sport and art-based activities for under 18s to engage with and to help deter them from taking part in alcohol-related activity. Funding from Satellite Clubs, a Sport England funded project focused on local physical activity, has allowed the Youth Centre to employ a dance instructor from Inspire Youth Arts to host weekly dance sessions which have culminated in performances in local dance festivals. A programme of eight free football sessions run by Nottingham Forest Trust will commence in June at the Dukeries Academy all weather pitch. Young people, male and female, between the ages of 14 and 18 are invited to turn up and play free of charge. Helen Ellison, health improvement officer at Newark and Sherwood District Council, said: “As Youth Centre numbers have increased, anti-social behaviour in the area has dropped significantly and work is now going on to understand how provision can be maintained over the holidays when the youth service normally closes. This award is testament to the hard work of all partners involved in the scheme in creating a better and safer community.”
The Dukeries Third Age Group The meeting on Monday 20th
May will be the Dukeries Third Age Group’s AGM. This meeting will be at 1.00pm in the Jubilee Hall, Wellow Road, Ollerton. There will also be a tombola and plant stall. Dukeries Third Age Group meetings are held on the third Monday of every month. There is usually a speaker and you are able to find out about their many different and interesting groups. The speaker at the March meeting was Tony Brewer, who gave a presentation showing photographs of people in different locations and situations. Tony is also the group
leader of the ‘Photography Group’. The Dukeries Third Age Group is open to anyone who is over 50 years of age and who is retired or semi-retired. As a visitor, you are invited to attend two general meetings at £1.00 each time. In addition, you may make two visits to two different groups (for the appropriate fee if there is one to be paid) to see if they are of interest to you. After the ‘taster’, you must join the Dukeries Third Age Group to take part in any future activities. A warm welcome is extended to all people who are interested.

Take action to help nature’s recovery Last month, The Wildlife Trusts
launched a new film featuring celebrities including our President Emeritus, Sir David Attenborough, to launch our Wilder Future campaign. Shot in the style of a movie trailer, it aims to highlight the urgent action that is needed to turn back the clock and bring back our cherished wildlife. In just 24 hours the trailer was viewed online over one million times and has now been screened in over 500 cinemas across the UK. For it to have real impact, we need to inspire people to take action at home, at school and even at work to make new spaces for wildlife. Private gardens cover more land than all the nature reserves in the UK. They are already important for nature; but any garden can be made more welcoming to wildlife. Simple steps like putting up a bird or bat box, adding a bird feeder, or putting out a dish of water really make a difference. Adding more nectar bearing
36 May 2019
Erin McDaid looks at how we can help wildlife in our own backyards plants will boost the survival chances of pollinators, from bees to hoverﬂies. Planting a tree will provide a range of opportunities from safe perching and roosting sites for birds and nooks and crannies under bark where insects such as ladybirds can hibernate. The single best way to transform a garden for wildlife, is to add a pond. A pond doesn’t have to be huge to be a wildlife haven — even an old sink sunk into the ground will provide useful habitat. If you have space for a pond, your garden could become an oasis for frogs, newts and damselﬂies. Mammals including hedgehogs may stop by for a drink and birds will enjoy bathing in the shallows. The real attraction of creating a pond, is seeing how quickly it will become colonised by wildlife. Whilst it’s too late to
expect frog spawn this year, a pond dug in the next few weeks and filled from a water butt, will quickly attract insects such as water boatmen. Frogs will take up residence within months and dragonﬂies should also be drawn to it over the summer giving an opportunity to observe their colours and delicate wing structure up close. If we see a repeat of the long hot spell, we had last year, a pond created now will also provide a welcome new source of water and a cool resting spot for wildlife. As well as benefiting wildlife, you’ll benefit from close encounters of the wildlife kind in the weeks, months and years ahead. Creating a pond from scratch might seem daunting but there’s lots of advice available. For details about simple actions you can take to help nature’s recovery, including a downloadable Wild about Ponds booklet visit www. nottinghamshirewildlife.org/ actions.

I am pleased to announce that The Healthy Foot Clinic is expanding and relocating from the Forest Centre in Ollerton on to the main high street. We will continue to offer a professional service that will meet all your footcare needs in addition to some new treatments that will help aid towards our local communities well being. Firstly, the foot clinic will work with all ages including clients with diabetes, physical, mental disabilities, and sensory impairment either at our new clinic, or at your home if mobility is a problem. We recognise that the foot wears or suffers damage and stress throughout your life through sport, accident or just day to day life. If pushed beyond its capabilities this can reduce the quality of life for the sufferer and because the NHS podiatry departments do not offer a self referral service, long waiting times / short appointments you may need our help. Working within the private sector means that myself and colleague, Vicky Beadsmore, are able to allocate sufficient time and flexibility that ensures your foot health needs can be met discreetly and professionally.

the iconic bridge, and he also covered the recent problems which have arisen because of the ongoing fracking project across the country. Clumber had to concede eventually that they had no legal right to prevent access for surveying as part of efforts to assess the area for shale gas but if it is discovered and becomes a possibility, then there could be problems which will have to be considered. There are always ongoing plans for National Trust properties to keep them of interest to the public as well as the never-ending maintenance to be dealt with, and he talked about proposed plans for Hardwick, Southwell Workhouse and Calke Abbey in particular. The last winter meeting was the group’s
AGM in April, which was followed by a talk from Pat McLaughlin on the subject of South Yorkshire Castles. Their summer season of visits starts in May. Members will all have been advised of the May and June visits by either email or letter. The first outing is to Middleton Hall and then Lichfield Cathedral on 8th May.

Make it minimal There is increasing enthusiasm
for a more minimalist garden style, where fewer plants have greater individual impact in a more designed situation with straight lines aplenty, so here are some suggestions for achieving the effect you want. Decide on the plants you like and that will suit your garden but keep to as few different types as possible. The biggest impact will be achieved if you are selective, for example concentrating on ornamental grasses. Also key is clever use of straight lines, ideally with a few right angles too. Edges must be sharply defined, perhaps using sleepers, other timber or angled metal. Keep plants well back from the border edging so these lines are not interfered with. Colours should fit your preferences and the surroundings but restrict the number of colours for a calmer and simpler effect. Existing features such as sheds or fences can be recoloured or painted to fit in with the colour scheme — otherwise,
40 May 2019
Pippa Greenwood looks at keeping it simple by creating a minimalist garden their current colour will have to be included in that scheme. A stunning minimalist effect can be achieved by using a single type of plant and container — for example, conifers in terracotta containers. The only variation is in the size of the conifer: all colours, textures and plants are the same. Buy different sizes of the same conifer type and clip regularly to maintain the size difference or buy one size and trim lightly to achieve the desired look. Green, in the form of foliage, helps add a feeling of tranquillity to a minimalist garden so include it, perhaps as a neatly clipped box hedging or as a few bay lollipops in angular containers. Containers must be very plain, ideally straight-sided angular styles in a single colour. An evenly spaced trio of pots, each with a single
central plant, provides a perfect choice of container planting. If you like topiary stick to simple tightly clipped spheres or ‘lollipops’, cubes or at most spirals; there is no space for a fantastically sculptured creature if you’re going minimalist! Plants with simple or angular shapes such as iris, alliums, conifers, clipped box, canna or palms are an excellent choice, but opt for personal (but simple) favourites available locally. Grass alternatives such as gravel may feature highly. Gravel needs less maintenance than grass, but keep it weed-free and easy-care by installing a weed-membrane (rather like woven, plastic hessian) on to the soil before putting down the gravel. Thoroughly weed the area then firm and compact well before putting the fabric down. Don’t use cheaper plastic sheeting as rain won’t penetrate. Opt for simple, classically styled garden furniture with as few colours and textures as possible and it won’t detract from the minimalist environment and look — now sit back and enjoy!

The ‘good enough’ mindset
I’m a perfectionist; it’s both
my best and my worst trait. In one breath, it’s admirable to do everything to a high standard but if I do not take a step back and keep my ideas in check, I can become riddled with the fear of failure and nagged by doubt to the point of taking forward progress. Decision-making becomes impossible and I can end up doing nothing for fear of it not being perfect, or doing something or then becoming overwhelmed by disappointment if it is not perfect. Sound familiar? I don’t believe it is just me. In everyday life I consciously have to accept mistakes, learn to do the best I can with the constraints that exist and accept that my best is good enough. After all, life is often about dealing with difficulties and achieving despite the many obstacles which are put in our way. NOT EVERYTHING IS A COMPETITION It is commonplace for so many people to see every element of life as a competition. But it isn’t. As long
44 May 2019
Chanel Hosﬁeld tries to find the balance between perfection and failure as everyone does their best it isn’t right or fair to hand out medals for first, second and third place and class anything else as a failure. We need to recognise that we can’t be top achievers in everything. We constantly strive to do better but there will often be people who do certain things better — or worse — than us and that doesn’t matter. Being ﬂawless isn’t going to make you better thought of and it is only going to cause escalating standards and at some point, you will be unable to achieve more. KEEP AIMING HIGH Accepting ‘good enough’ is not the same as not trying or settling for something mediocre. Healthy high standards are important — as long as they are healthy and improvement doesn’t mean perfection. Goals for a job well done can still be realistic and consistently achieving a high
standard is better than striving for 100% perfection at all times. CALMING YOUR DEMANDS As well as judging my own performance against perfectionism, I find myself doing the same with my loved ones too. I can drive my family up the wall with my many demands for them to be perfect — putting things away in exactly the right places, never forgetting anything, coming out on top in all situations. I need to use the thinking towards my own behaviour when working with others too, and make sure that encouraging others, especially my children, doesn’t cause them to fear failure too. Striving towards perfection can be healthy and I can overcome this over-analysis of my achievements. I still don’t like mistakes, but I can accept them, and I will always balance my achievements against things I’m not so good at. Life isn’t perfect and without mistakes we’ll never learn. We’re all entitled to a cheat day. I will achieve the ‘good enough mindset’.
