Henlow Youth Cycling henlowyouth@gmail.com

H

enlow Youth cycling was born from an idea of giving young cycle racers somewhere to transfer their skills between their off-road and road season. We have a small but technical road circuit that is provided to us by RAF Henlow, it’s a fantastic facility that we have and unlike anything else locally. We also have room for younger riders to hone their skills. During the winter we have use of an off-road area that we use to teach Cyclocross skills. What started out with a mere 6-10 attendees has steadily grown to over 30 children attending each session. Starting off with 1 British Cycling level 2 coach and a level 1 coach we have continued to develop not only the children but also the parents, we now have 5 level 2 trained coaches.

We have children from the age of 5 who have recently learned to ride through to 16-year olds that are racing at county and national levels. Our group provides coaching for a few clubs in the area, we have children that represent Hitchin Nomads, Icknield road club, Milton Keynes CC and plenty of children that just want to ride their bikes in a non-competitive environment. We teach children the fundamentals of cycling, everything from pedalling and braking all the way through to gear selection and cornering techniques. During the summertime we will concentrate on road riding, and during the winter we will move onto the grass, this is more difficult for the younger ones, but they soon get to grips with it. It also means that we don’t have to cancel sessions due to water laying on the circuit. All the children are encouraged, but not forced to race at the winter muddy monsters’ series that is organised by British cycling and hosted by various clubs from the Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire areas. These events allow them to put into practice the skills they have learnt. With RAF Henlow set to close in the next few years we would love to have secured a training area that would mean the legacy of RAF Henlow and what it has provided to the local area could continue to operate. We hope to find a local company or individual who could help us approach the local councils to show the work we are doing with the community, in the hope that they may be able to provide us somewhere, this is a long way off yet but there’s no reason not to plan for the future!

Contribution thanks to

Gill Govier Fit 4 OCR Ltd

07720882611 info@fit4ocr.com

et yourself outdoors and active, improving fitness, learning new skills and using up tons of energy by getting stuck into Obstacle Course Racing (OCR).

Obstacle arenas are fun-filled fitness facilities which will get you running, jumping, climbing, crawling, balancing, swinging and carrying as well as, optionally, getting thoroughly covered in mud! Everyone supports each other and you will quickly make new friends whilst improving strength, speed and stamina. You don’t have to go to a major event like Tough Mudder to enjoy the OCR experience, there are local, inexpensive facilities which operate all the year round providing a great venue to take a group of children or adults for team bonding, outdoor fitness training or an unusual birthday party. Either get yourself along to a weekly class, hire the venue privately for your sports team, scouts/guides or just a group of friends. Or get the kids involved in a seasonal activity, for example “Children’s Active Hour” which operates during school half term and throughout the summer holidays. Some obstacles you’ll find very easy, others will need some skill and practice, gradually building up confidence and overcoming any fear of heights or confined spaces. Professional, insured, fitness personnel experienced in Obstacle Course Racing are on hand to ensure you learn all the techniques needed. You will have a brilliant time!

See you in the mud! 8

Welcome to our monthly feature: ’Kid’s Got Talent’ The place where we showcase the amazing talents of local children. We hope this will help motivate and inspire other children to discover new sports and hobbies.

Name: Robyn Betteridge Age: 7 from: lower stondon Q. Briefly explain your talent. I am one of the UK’s youngest performing contortionists. Being very bendy, I can twist and bend my body into strange and unnatural positions! Q. How did you become a contortionist? I found out about contortion via YouTube and used to copy the moves from people’s videos. My mummy and daddy were worried I would hurt myself so researched the art of contortion and found me a trainer in London. Q. When do you practice, who with and for how long? I travel from Lower Stondon to London most weeks to train 1 -2 hours with my amazing coach, Pixie Le Knot. I also train a lot at home. I attend gymnastics, ballet and swimming each week. I love to be very active. Q. Are you a member of a club? I am not a member of a contortion club as such, but more part of a contortion family. Pixie Le Knot, my trainer, has students aged from 7 and upwards. I train 1 on 1, but also sometimes train in groups which is great fun. I love working with all my contortion friends. Q. What do you love about contortion? I love that It is very different and rare to find fellow contortionists. I love the reaction from people when I perform a move - it can really shock people. Q. What is your number one challenge being a contortionist? You have to train hard and often to maintain and improve your flexibility. This can make you 10

Advertising deadline for Sept - 10th August- visit www.livinglifemagazine.co.uk


very tired and also very hungry lol. Breathing correctly is also very important as it can lead to headaches otherwise. Q. What are your goals/dreams/visions? I have only been formally training for one year and already have had the most amazing time and opportunities. I was recently signed up by Kids London Ltd. who are a modelling and acting performance agency. I would love to perform for the Queen, be in a movie and inspire others to try contortion. Q. Is it dangerous being a contortionist? Being naturally flexible and young with proper training, no it is not. For safety, it is important that strength, body awareness, stability, and control are trained along with flexibility. I only train within the range that is appropriate for me. You need to make sure you warm up properly. Medical surveys show that contortionists and yogis not only have a great resistance to every day complaints, pain and disease, but their general health is excellent and they tend to live considerably longer than people in any other profession. Q. Do you enter competitions or perform in shows and have you ever won any prizes? So far I have performed in two London shows directed by Pixie Le Knot and recently performed in two shows at the Gordon Craig Theatre in Stevenage as a special guest for BX Dance. Q. Any advice or tips for anyone wanting to become a contortionist? Do what I did and learn some basic moves from Instagram and YouTube, if you like it, go and find a trainer to properly practice.

You can follow my contortion journey on Instagram, Facebook and YouTube, search @robyn_contortion

Artisans in the yard a poem by Marje Fitt

Take a wander down the alleyway, beside the Builder’s store, And come across a gallery with treasures you’ll adore. On show the skill of artisans, their work for all to see. It gilds the walls, delights the soul, all there for you and me! Sometimes you’ll find objects in wood, or ironmongery. Some wall art made from resin with surprising artistry. A card selection you will find, sweet smelling candles too, A superb choice of jewellery, and paintings - come and view! And if it’s furniture you seek that’s different from the rest, Then look no further, have a browse, we’ll stir your interest! So tell the arty friends you know to give The Yard a try. It’s different! It’s a changing scene in Shefford... do drop by!

Grand Opening of Chandlers Shefford Country Stores

O

ur Chandlers country store team were pleased to welcome and meet many pet, equestrian and country enthusiasts at our Grand opening of the Shefford Store on 22nd June. Not only this but we also met many new canine friends, all of who enjoyed a complimentary pigs ear!! We had a fun time delivering competitions, quizzes and free tea and cake to our visitors, with lemon drizzle the firm favourite on such a beautiful sunny day. We had lots of fabulous entries into the Bruder, Siku, Schleich and Crafty Pony colouring competition and the competition winners were all pleased to come and collect their prizes. At the open day our brand experts from Milwaukee power tools, Top Spec and Emerald Green horse feed, Nettex equestrian supplements and Skinners dog food, were kept busy with lots of questions and providing valuable advice. We had many promotions running across the store with some of the most popular being discounts on natural dog treats and Kong dog toys, Ariat clothing and footwear offers, Weatherbeeta prime and le Mieux reductions and special prizes on Stihl. Our first 50 customers were all delighted to receive a free gift with purchase, either pet, equine or country store themed. Not only that but we had free goody bags from many of our brands and a make your own goody bag from Allen and Page.

We really look forward to welcoming all those that we met on the day and many new faces. 16

s r y e e t Mon Mat

Low interest rates are so bad for savers, should I keep my money under the bed? We are all feeling the rising cost of making ends meet and worry that the outcome of Brexit will hit our pockets even harder. One solution is to make our savings work harder than leaving funds under the bed or in the bank at low interest. One opportunity is to learn about linking our savings to the FTSE 100 Index. The amount you get back at any time goes up when the index rises and falls when it goes down. So you can make a profit or a loss depending on when you draw your money out. But why do I suggest this might be an opportunity at the moment? As I write, the index is more than 10% lower than it’s all time high and in the past the index has always returned to its highest level and then risen even higher. Unless history fails to repeat itself there is a profit of 10% or more to be made by putting money in that you might not need to draw in the short term. Money in the bank earning half a per cent interest per annum would take 20 years to earn 10%! Few would doubt that the Index of the performance of Britain’s largest 100 companies will take that long to recover. Google ‘FTSE 100 index Tracker funds’ and learn more about it or email us for more information. If you have questions that you need answered to do with savings and investments you can contact Robert at harrisfinancialfriend@gmail.com Robert’s job is not to give financial advice but to use simple explanations that help you along the way

DELIVERY BOYS’ REVIEW by John McBurney & Andrew Martin

We check out the local restaurants & eateries

Our two man delivery team (Andrew & John) will deliver over 5300 magazines across Arlesey, Stondon & Henlow. It’s no mean feat and after a gruelling nine hour day our delivery boys are ravenous! To celebrate the launch of the new magazine we decided to treat ourselves to a slap up feed at The Crown pub in Henlow. The Crown is pretty pub, full of traditional character and charm with exposed beams and open fireplaces, but also has many contemporary touches giving it a fresh, modern feel. Once inside we were immediately greeted by our friendly host and we were kindly ushered to our table. Our waitress, called Katy, soon arrived with menus at hand. It certainly has a relaxed and calming atmosphere and we were immediately offered drinks and time to unwind whilst perusing the tempting menu. The menu at The Crown is excellent, with a wide range of options catering for all tastes, including starters, sharers, burgers, traditional mains, and a daily special board which also includes the Josper Grill which offers a daily selection of meat cuts and fish. There’s also a fine array of desserts and an extensive cheese board. It’s entirely up to you, you can eat light or you can eat big! Andrew ordered the thyme and garlic half roast chicken with baby spring vegetables and fondant potato. John ordered from the special board, the pork and herb meatballs, 22

tagliatelle in a fresh tomato sauce with parmesan. The roast chicken was perfect with vegetables cooked just right, with just the right amount of bite to them. The pork meatballs were succulent, almost melting in your mouth. We both agreed, the food was absolutely delicious. For dessert Andrew opted for ice cream, a 3 scoop combination of raspberry and chocolate, whereas John ordered a large cappuccino. After our meal we had the opportunity to talk with Jo, the duty manager and also Scott, the head chef. It was great to talk to them about the pub, the menu and the food. We also discovered that the pub offers accommodation with 5 stunning bedrooms available to rent. We were also keen to find out more about the ‘Bottomless Brunch’ which is available on Saturday morning, a two course brunch menu, tea or coffee, plus bottomless booze. Now that is tempting!
