Blephritis – a common cause of red, sore eyes By Adrian Springett of Eyetech’s Street branch Blepharitis is a chronic inflammation of the eyelids and can cause the eyelid margins to appear red, sore and unsightly. Blepharitis is almost always linked to poor quality or insufficient tears, in other words, a dry eye. Initially, the eyes can feel itchy with a slight burning or foreign body sensation but the symptoms can vary from day to day. Crusting at the eyelid margin can occur and the eyelid skin can crack and bleed. This irritation will cause the eyes to appear red and may result in swollen lids in more severe cases. The factors mentioned above can lead to light sensitivity, blurring of vision and may cause the development of styes. Any activity or atmospheric condition which affects the lubricating property of the tears will increase the symptoms associated with Blepharitis. A hot dry atmosphere and staring at a screen will increase tear evaporation. Comfortable contact lens wear is very unlikely. A sufferer of more severe Blepharitis will endure a fairly miserable time. Help and advice to minimize the symptoms is available. Since Blepharitis is a chronic condition you tend not to cure it, but manage or minimize the symptoms. Initially, the ocular hygiene of the sufferer needs to be improved and there are several things required to achieve this. The eyelid margins need to be cleaned

daily with lid wipes. These wipes remove bacteria, dirt, makeup and dry scaly skin from the eyelids. The wipes soothe and soften the skin over a period of time. More severe cases require special gel to be put onto the lid margins which can be left on overnight. Bathing the eyes with salt water will remove muck and dust which gets trapped under the eyelids during the day. Hot compresses will soften the eyelid tissue and gentle squeezing of the lids can help to clear blocked eyelid glands. Once the eyelids are looking and feeling more comfortable, the tear film quality needs to be maintained. There are many over the counter products that can be purchased but the effectiveness of them vary considerably. Your doctor is only allowed to prescribe the most basic of drops through the NHS and if the symptoms are sufficient to require a consultation, these drops are unlikely to be effective. So, managing Blepharitis has a cost implication since the symptoms need to be controlled and then maintained. Spectrum Thea is a company that produces a range of lubricants, lid wipes and gel treatments which are all preservative and detergent free. Their products can provide Blepharirtis sufferers with welcome relief from their ocular discomfort.

2012 a New Year and a New You? Are you one of the many Britons that every year convince yourself that this is the year that you will lose weight, stop smoking, cut out the chocolate and become that changed person you have always dreamt of? Ian Sample a Science Correspondent for the Guardian said “Making resolutions is a near pointless exercise, psychologists say. We break them, become dispirited in the process and finally more despondent than we were before.” It is estimated that approximately 50% of the population makes a New Years resolution each year and a recent study of 700 people by Richard Wiseman a psychologist at the University of Hertfordshire showed a 78% failure rate. So why do some many people fail each year? People use New Years resolutions as way to motivate themselves by setting a date in the future to make that change. The reason most New Years resolutions have falling by the wayside in February is simple unrealistic goals and a lack of planning. The goals people set for themselves are normally life changing, can you really change your whole lifestyle over night? Psychology Professor Peter Herman identifies the New Year Resolution ritual as the “‘False Hope Syndrome’, which means their resolution is significantly unrealistic and out of alignment with their internal view of themselves”. 4

The key to success is; • Small bite size chunks, for example you want to lose weight, instead of saying this year I want to lose 4 stone, why not set yourself a goal of losing 10 pounds in 12 weeks, this is much more manageable and at the end of the 12 weeks you can feel confident in your ability to lose weight. • Focus on 1 resolution not several. • Why wait until the New Year, make the change today. • Celebrate the success of every goal you meet. • Focus on new behaviours and changing habits instead of cutting things out. If you are seeking motivation in 2012 then we have it in the bucket load at Glastonbury Leisure Centre. We have some brilliant classes from Zumba, to Spinning, to Pilates, to Circuits and Boxercise. If it is the gym you are looking for then our qualified instructors can design you a personalised training programme to help you reach your goals in bite sized chunks. And if childcare is a barrier then why not enrol your child on to one of our junior courses such fencing, trampolining, gymnastics and badminton whilst you use the gym. To make this the year visit www.1610.org.uk or give Glastonbury Leisure Centre a call on 01458 830090.

Is solar power dead? Not in the south west, it’s not.

With the Government announcement bringing forward the cut in the Feed in Tariff, due to massive demand and falling prices - and to stop foreign speculators creaming off the money meant for homeowners - some predicted a huge drop off in solar installations. But at Solarsense, Somerset’s leading solar company, things are still very busy as they have managed to reduce their prices as well thanks to falling panel costs, which are approximately half what they were some 18 months ago. In conjunction with the South West being by far the best region in the UK for solar photovoltaic (electric) power, due to its ideal cool and bright conditions (high UV, cooling winds and low pollution levels) means that investing in a solar PV system still gives a return on initial outlay of around 8% and upwards, which is tax free and index linked for 25 years of payments. Solarsense MD Stephen Barrett said, “A snapshot of why our clients are still going ahead with solar after the 12th December deadline is that they still see it as a far better return than you could get from any bank. And perhaps more importantly, it gives a measure of future security against rising fuel costs.” Recent high profile installations by Solarsense include Bristol Zoo, several systems for the Duchy

of Cornwall, and Bristol ethical food co-op Essential Trading. Bristol Zoo head of estates Tim Wilson said: “We chose Solarsense because the company has a strong track record of installing systems in high-profile historic sites, and also with large solar arrays such as the system at Worthy Farm, home of the Glastonbury Festival.” "It makes environmental sense and it makes financial sense – it is a success story all round." Have you had your solar panels installed by someone with a dodgy looking moustache recently?! It's obviously been a trying time in the solar industry of late, and so many of our wonderful installers have been supporting Movember in the last month that we felt a bit of light relief for charity was well deserved. Together we donated over £400 for the Movember cause, which aims to raise awareness and funds for mens health charities including the Prostate Cancer charity. Although the month itself is now over, if you'd like to donate, just visit their page http:// uk.movember.com Next year our Solarsense Movember effort will be even bigger and better, with our own official Movember Team of tash-growers to sponsor!

Solarsense The South West’s leading solar installer since 1994 Installers of solar thermal and PV systems.  Sell surplus power at premium rates with the Feed in Tariff Scheme: - Up to 43.3p per kilowatt hour generated. - Expect a return on installation 'investment' cost of 8-12%.  Solarsense have installed over 4,500 domestic and commercial solar systems throughout the South West. Completed projects include Chew Magna and Chewton Mendip Primary Schools; the Clifton Lido; Redland Park Church; Oldfield Surgery, Bath, and the UK’s largest private rooftop PV system (200kWp) at Worthy Farm, Glastonbury.

Musings from my garden By Martin Mudie

Well, the New Year has arrived and January still finds me in a state of blissful hibernation, along with most of my garden. This is actually a time when I do a great deal of work from my armchair with a dog and cat sitting on my lap. Needless to say this work is cerebral not physical which suits me fine and involves reviewing and planning for the summer and autumn. However, before that, it is a good idea to examine the structure or plan of your plot and this is a really good time to do it when the garden is reduced to its bare bones. Here are a few ideas which I have garnered over the years. No matter how small the garden it is always a good idea to split it in half or even thirds by bring the flower beds into the lawn to form an archway or path into the next section. Any garden is more interesting if it cannot be seen at one go. If you are making flower beds always try to make

Walton W.I.

The next monthly meeting will be held at Walton Village Hall on Thursday 12th January, 7.30pm,

an access path or lawn all the way around so that every part of the bed is accessible for weeding or planting or maintenance. Have sitting areas in many places around the garden with either paving, gravel or bark under the seats. This means you can sit in sun or shade at different times of the day. In small gardens try to keep the taller plants at the back and smaller ones at the front as this increases the sense of space. When planting flower beds have ‘dot’ plants of either small trees or evergreens to allow interest throughout the year. Topical tip There are a few gardens like Montacute, Stourhead and Hestercombe which are open throughout the winter. Visit them to see how beautiful a well planned winter garden can be. Happy New Year from the Lovely Muriel and myself and happy gardening in 2012.

In 2007 they decided to change their front lounge into a dinning room and open a small Spanish style restaurant which is open to residents and non residents. Ramon who is the chef comes from just north of Barcelona so the food is of Spanish influence, simple but using the freshest produce available and as local as possible. As the restaurant seats up to 16 people it is advisable to book a table. It is also ideal for a group as for groups of between 10 to 16 persons they have a Tapas menu available or their regular menu which is changed regularly and can be seen on their website They are open from 6.30pm – 9.00pm every evening and are fully licensed to sell alcohol. 1 Park Terrace, Glastonbury.

IS A "GOOD DIVORCE" POSSIBLE? Relationship breakdowns are traumatic life events, and sadly are on the rise. Statistics just released show that the numbers of divorces in England are increasing in the current financial crisis. Emotional pain, dragged out by bitter disputes can cause huge problems for the couple, children and wider family members, such as grandparents. Divorces can even cause illness. At Acorn Solicitors we believe that face to face contact with legal experts can ease the situation. A bad ‘quickie’ divorce rushed through can leave a host of emotional and financial problems which are painful and costly to sort out later. We work with you to ensure this

doesn’t happen and you get a fair outcome once the divorce is finalised. We also run a Mediation service for couples who are separating. This can prevent the pitfalls of separation becoming obstacles to communication and help the separating couple to reach proposals together. Acorn's motto is "where your family matters". We strive to make sure your family is helped at every stage of life's journey. Our solicitors have years of experience in these issues and a friendly and sympathetic approach. Come and see us to work out a plan that will benefit you and your family. Call us at our Street Office on 01458 441507 or visit our website at www.acornsolicitors.co.uk or

NEW YEAR. NEW YOU By Nick Cater As New Year 2012 gets going, how can the average family in Street, Glastonbury, Walton and Ashcott make a difference and save money by wasting less and recycling more? Instead of promise-the-earth New Year resolutions – forgotten a week later – better to try down-to-earth reality, with little steps that add up to a lot. So, walk and cycle more and drive less, tick. Turn down the central heating one degree, tick. Showers rather than baths, another tick. Just some of the ways to save money and shrink your carbon footprint.

Some decisions are easy. Why not save the £50 a month the average family with children wastes in food thrown away? Avoiding food waste is best. Next best is recycling. If all food was recycled into compost for agriculture, it would save Somerset council tax payers around £1.8 million by cutting the cost of dumping food in landfill. No wonder the Somerset Waste Partnership (SWP) slogan is Recycle For All It’s Worth. Landfill costs include a £56-a-tonne government tax that is on a relentless escalator, up £8 a year. The result: Ashcott, Walton, Glastonbury and Street council tax payers today share a countywide bill of more than £8 million. 10

Here’s a how-to guide to love food, hate waste and save money. Make a pen and paper plan for the week’s meals, then check cupboards, fridge and freezer to see what you already have or could use by adapting the plan. Go shopping with a list and stick to it. After eating well, label leftovers in the freezer, scrape plates into the waste container, and use what you can – fruit and veg peelings, egg shells, coffee grounds, tea bags – in home composting. Finally, count your savings and check out the website lovefoodhatewaste.com for more help, from portion tips to a meal planner and lots of low-cost, great-taste recipes. Here are a few more easy resolutions: avoid supermarket plastic by getting a tough shopping bag, drink tap not bottled water, and sign up to stop junk mail (see the SWP website’s step-by-step guide). And talking of paper, you could always print less, print on both sides or keep scrap paper for notes. Other ways to slim your rubbish bin include labelling a box “charity shop” and not letting it get empty, and holding a swishing party: everyone brings unwanted clothes and swaps them to find that new-look new you for the New Year.

Why keep chickens?

By Kim Allingham Avalon Animal Feeds & Pet Supplies Glastonbury During the Second World War people all over the country kept chickens (and grew their own vegetables). By 1943 -44, domestic hen keepers were producing about 25% of the country’s officially known supplies of fresh eggs. Whilst food is no longer rationed the credit crunch might be a reason to consider keeping chickens but there are many others positive reasons to do so. Keeping a few hens in the garden is unlikely to make you a profit but you have the added benefit of knowing your hens are happy and healthy and in return they will provide you with fresh eggs which always taste better than a supermarket egg! They are very easy to keep. You just need a dry, well ventilated fox proof hen house and run with food and water dispensers. Ideally they can be let out to roam free at least some of the time which is great for pest control. Be prepared to dedicate an area which will become their favourite dust bath, an important part of their grooming regime! Sawdust, chopped straw and barley straw is required to

keep their hen house warm and dry and you will need to clean out their house on a regular basis. In addition to devouring household food scraps, bugs and insects and keeping your lawn trim, they will need a good quality layers pellet or mash, formulated to provide all their nutritional needs and ensure they lay you fine eggs. A complementary handful of Mixed Poultry corn or cut maize as a treat in the afternoon/evening can help when it’s time for bed when they need a full crop. Don’t give them too much corn as they’ll get fat and fat hens don’t lay eggs! Most people buy hens at ‘point of lay’, some rehome ex-battery hens for the added satisfaction of giving them a better life. These will need time to adjust to a very different life. You can even buy fertile eggs and hatch your own which is a wonderful experience but be prepared for cockerels as well as hens! For all your poultry feeds, beddings and feeders call into Avalon Animal Feeds, Glastonbury where we will be pleased to help you.

Lose Weight And Feel Great This New Year Every year millions of people make a New Year’s resolution to lose weight. In fact, weight loss is the number one goal for 75% of adults, but most have given up by the end of the month. Here, Slimming World Consultant Julie, who runs groups in Street, offers her top tips to stay on track with your resolutions this year. “New Year can be a good time to make the decision to change your lifestyle and lose weight. But there are some common traps that people fall into, especially at this time of year when there are so many faddy dieting ideas flying around. By being aware of these obstacles you can give yourself the best chance of a successful weight loss,” she says. Tips to avoid weight loss traps: • Losing weight just because it’s January. Make sure your motivation to lose weight is more than just ‘because it’s the New Year’. Think about your reasons for wanting to lose weight. Making small changes that you’re confident you can keep up will increase your chances of success. • G  oing on a ‘fad’ diet. Following the latest fad diet or Hollywood craze may work in the short term, but these diets are usually very restrictive and impractical in the long term. They’re often based around extremes such as banning whole food groups or replacing them with liquid foods. This approach can lead to hunger and deprivation which eventually cause the slimmer to lapse, binge, feel guilty and gain more weight than they’ve lost. • G  oing hungry. Slimming doesn’t have to mean starving. Slimming World’s healthy eating plan, Food Optimising, encourages members to eat lots of satisfying and naturally low-fat foods like pasta, rice, potatoes, lean meat, fish and plenty of fruit and vegetables so they’re never hungry and it’s easy to enjoy all their favourite dishes like Spaghetti Bolognese, roast dinners and even chips. No foods are banned – even chocolate, cheese and alcohol – so there’s no guilt or deprivation. • J  oining a gym. Many people join a gym in the mistaken belief that exercise alone will shift

12

their excess pounds. But research shows that exercise combined with a healthy eating programme is the most effective route. At Slimming World members are encouraged to build up slowly and incorporate just a small amount of physical activity into their daily routine. Activities such as washing the car, walking the dog and gardening all add up. By doing three or four sessions of moderate exercise a week slimmers can boost their weight loss by around one to two pounds (lbs) a month – that’s 12lbs to 24lbs a year. Being active can also boost your mood, increase your energy levels, and reduce stress. As well as all that it brings many, many health benefits such as lower blood pressure, a reduced risk of cancer and type 2 diabetes, and stronger bones, joints and muscles. • Setting unrealistic targets. Set yourself achievable short-term and long-term goals, such as losing 1-2lbs a week, losing a stone in a couple of months or reaching your goal weight in 12 months. Unrealistic targets will work to demotivate you and make you less likely to succeed. • Going it alone. Research shows that slimmers are more successful at losing and maintaining their weight when they have the support and advice of likeminded people in a group setting. Slimming World members share their ups and downs every week.

The Mid Somerset Camera Club meets every Tuesday evening at the Tor Leisure Centre, Glastonbury at 8.00pm until approximately 10.00pm from September until May. The group follows an organised programme which includes tuition, visiting, speakers, practical sessions and competitions. Typically the Club holds several exhibitions every year. There is a varied programme planned over the coming weeks: • 1 0th January – Picture Presentation – an evening dedicated to presenting images in an alternative way to the 40 x 50 mount. The second half of the evening will focus on presenting digital images, especially when making an AV. • 1 5th January – Social Get Together • 1 7th January – Practicing Technique (2) – Close Up and Studio Portraiture

• 24th January – PGM – an opportunity to propose the new season’s committee and suggest ideas for the next season’s programme • 31st January – Talking Technique (3) Monochrome Each spring, for those who wish to participate, there is a photographic break of three or four days duration to somewhere out of the ordinary. Recent years have seen visits to Krakow, Prague and Riga. In May this year members spent three days visiting Lisbon.In the summer months the Club organises evening or day photographic trips to places of interest. The Club is affiliated to the Photographic Alliance of Great Britain through the Western Counties Photographic Federation. There are currently nearly 60 Members of varied age and ability joined by a common interest in photography. If you want to enjoy your photography in the company of other like-minded people, come and join. You can find out more by visiting the Club’s web site at www. midsomersetcameraclub.org.uk

Julie says: “Making small changes to your lifestyle habits can make a huge difference and it won’t take long for you to reap the benefits. Losing just ten per cent of your weight can bring you major health benefits and you’ll really feel the difference.

How to treat Earache As the winter takes hold colds, tonsillitis and flu are more common, they can lead to earache – especially in children – so it’s useful to know what to do if you or someone suffers from one. An Adult may take two paracetamol tablets or their own pain killers. A child may take the recommended dose of paracetomol syrup (not aspirin) Make the casualty comfortable and give them a source of heat, such as a hot water bottle wrapped in a towel, to hold against the affected ear. If lying flat makes the pain worse prop them up with a pillow. Advise the casualty to see the doctor. If you are worried about the condition, particularly if the casualty is a child, or there is discharge, fever or marked

hearing loss seek medical help.

Rising fuel costs put pressure on Hospice home nursing.

The rising cost of fuel at the pump is putting pressure on the funds of local charity St Margaret's Hospice. As the costs are set to rise again the charity is pleading for people to help them cover the costs of getting their nurses to the homes of very vulnerable patients. Pam Knight, the charity's Director of Fundraising said, "We estimate that it is going to cost us another £5,000 a year on fuel costs alone to cover our current service in the coming year. Our nurses are working with people all over the county in their homes; people who want to spend precious time with their family and friends in the familiar comfort of their homes." St Margaret's nurses travel approximately 65,000 miles helping to ensure that people with life-limiting illness receive the care they need where they want it. According to a report 'Dying for Change' published earlier this year by DEMOS, a Government think tank, two in three people, given

“Only Men Allowed” – ‘shedding’ the image of men

the choice, would choose to die at home. The charity does everything it can to facilitate this. "Every year we have to raise a phenomenal amount of money to ensure that the people of Somerset receive specialist hospice care when they need it. Without St Margaret's this service simply would not be available. This extra £5,000 is another pressure on that funding," added Pam. The charity is asking the people of Somerset if they will help support this extra cost by holding 'Fuel lunches' . The concept is a simple and social one. People invite friends and family to a lunch and raise money in fun ways like raffles, pamper treats, charging for the meal etc. "Most of the donations we receive are small but they all add up. It doesn't matter how much you raise, every single penny counts and will help sustain this vital service for the people of Somerset". If you would like more details on this, visit the charity's website, www.st-margarets-hospice.org. uk

Insulate now and save a packet on winter fuel bills

‘Men in Sheds’ is a project for men pioneered in Australia. Age UK Somerset, in partnership with other organisations, would like to support the men of Glastonbury, Street and the surrounding area to set up an opportunity for those aged 60 and over to come together to share interests and skills and learning new ones. Under the title “Only Men Allowed” you are invited to come and help plan how this pilot project can work. Do come along to the Unity Club, Leigh Road, Street, on Thursday 12th January from 2 – 4pm. The bar will be open and you will even have the opportunity to take part in a skittles competition. You can just turn up but if you have any questions do ring 0845 643 4709 to find out more.

The winter months can be a financially draining time for many local households – but help may be available to combat rising fuel prices! Warm Streets is a loft and cavity wall insulation scheme available across Somerset that can help reduce winter fuel bills. As many families continue to be affected by high fuel prices, Warm Streets is offering free insulation to low-income households, householders in receipt of benefits and people aged over 70. And for those who don’t meet the criteria, discounted loft and cavity wall insulation is still available. Prices start from as little as £125 for cavity wall insulation and £125 for loft insulation and both measures will save a lot off your fuel bills. The Warm Streets benefits team can offer advice on how to claim any state benefits you are entitled to. Confidential benefits checks can be carried out by our trained advisors where requested. As well as the extra income you might secure, being in receipt of a benefit could mean you qualify for free insulation. For free, impartial advice about this and other energy saving grants and offers call the Energy Saving Trust advice service on 0800 512 012 or email Warm Streets on warmstreets@cse.org.uk. Warm Streets is a joint local project between all the local authorities in Somerset (Bath & North East Somerset, Mendip, North Somerset, Sedgemoor, South Somerset, Taunton Deane and West Somerset), Scottish& Southern Energy, and the Centre for Sustainable Energy (CSE).

Looking Back - 25 Years The children at Ashcott Primary School have been celebrating 25 years of their school building being on its present site. The school moved from its Victorian building in School Close, Ashcott to its existing site on Ridgeway in 1986. The Headteacher at the time, Mr Pat Mann was invited back to join in the day of celebrations with the children in 2011. The children spent the day of celebrations taking part in a variety of fun activities to mark the occasion. A whole school photograph was taken outside the school building with all of the staff and children; children took part in a quiz with an 80s theme in their GEMS teams; the children made a complete chain around the school, holding hands in a line, before singing “Happy Birthday” to the school building! In the afternoon, Mr Mann helped to cut the

enormous cake with Richard Briar (current Headteacher), the eldest child and youngest child (twins) at the school today, which was then cut into pieces so that every child (and member of staff!) could take a piece home. Headteacher Richard Briar commented: “It seems appropriate at this time to reflect upon the hard work and commitment of parents, staff and governors who have been involved with the school over the last 25 years. It is as a result of such wonderful support for the school from the local community that the school continues to go from strength to strength! Thank you to you all as we look forward to the next 25 years with great hope and excitement…”

New Playhouse for Reception Children The children in the new Reception class at Ashcott Primary School received a very special early Christmas present! Their new playhouse was constructed by Adrian Davis, a parent volunteer and was funded from money raised by the well-supported school Parent and Teacher Association. The children are pictured here saying a big thank you to Adrian and the PTA for their support!
