Musings from My Garden

By Martin Mudie Having spent most of January in hibernation - that being my personal contribution to the world’s need for energy conservation – February always comes as a delightful surprise. For me this month can be summed up in one word – snowdrops. In the last few years many gardens have increased their collections and it is always lovely to see these improving from year to year. Consult the local press for information – my own personal favourites are Glastonbury Abbey – Ford Abbey in Dorset and Heale House in Wiltshire. All very easily reached! If you would like to start a collection of your own now is the time to buy when the plants are growing. They like a well drained soil and can really be left to their own devices. On another note – if you have them – this is the month to prune buddleias. These are shrubs will flower in white, purple or red shades mainly in August when there is not always a lot of colour in the garden. By pruning now you ensure more flowers and stop them from taking over the garden. As well as the common varieties of ‘Davidii’ you can now get new smaller varieties called ’Buzz’, which are suitable for the patio and in pots. Finally – a number of the winter shrubs still blooming are scented and a great favourite of mine is the winter honeysuckle – Lonicera Fragrantissimum – try saying that through a mouthful of mince pie – yes I still have some in stock! It does need a large space but when established can be pruned all through the winter as cut flowers for the house. Happy Gardening

Why can I see two of everything? When we look around we expect to see one of everything even though we have two eyes open. Our brain normally fuses the images from the two eyes and gives us single vision with binocular depth perception. So, what happens if we suddenly see two of everything? Double vision or diplopia is certainly disconcerting and even debilitating. If there are two images of everything, which is the “real one, which image do we believe”? Simple walking around can make a person with double vision feel unsteady and unbalanced and driving can be positively dangerous! The causes of double vision can range from the relatively minor, right through to the LIFE THREATENING and prompt investigation is required. ACES accredited Optometrists can investigate diplopia although the difficulty is that there is often nothing to actually physically see. Diplopia is caused in the main by the loss of control of eye movement resulting in eye misalignment and the production of two images. Loss of eye control will often be caused by something further back behind the eyes. Some of the serious causes may include stroke, aneurysm, brain tumour and infection.

Determining the cause is helped significantly by the information given to your Optometrist.. • When did the double vision start? • Have you hit your head, fallen, or been unconscious? • Is the double vision worse at the end of the day or when you're tired? • Have you had any other symptoms besides double vision? • Are the images side by side or one above the other? • Management of diplopia is initially concentrated around identifying and addressing the cause. Defective pupil reactions suggest a neurological cause and further tests such as scans may be required. An underlying systemic cause such as diabetes or blood pressure can be treated with medication and the diplopia may resolve over time. In some cases when diplopia is considered stable, special prisms incorporated into spectacle lenses can hold the eyes together and prevent the double vision. The advice is that if you experience new double vision and the cause is not obvious like too much “winter cheer”, you need to see an Optometrist promptly!

Thinking of moving home? You need an efficient, expert solicitor who is local to you. – by Jill Sinclair of Acorn Solicitors AS we head towards spring it is often a good time to think about moving home. But, as so many know, buying or selling a property is one of the most stressful things you will ever do. Dealing with the legalities of buying and selling properties is called Conveyancing - and that's where solicitors like Acorn Solicitors come in. Appointing a Solicitor who is experienced in Conveyancing can make the difference between a smooth transaction and a deal falling through. Buying or selling a property can flag up lots of queries and sometimes answers are needed quickly. That is where local Solicitors who have knowledge of the area are so important. Many firms advertise for Conveyancing

services online or give cheap quotes. These are never as cheap as they sound, with hidden costs, and the firms will be well out of the area and not able to be contacted easily. Acorn Solicitors are local to you and accessible on the High Street. We can see you in an evening or at home, if you cannot get into the office during normal office hours. We love using email and will always speak to you when you call or ring you back as soon as we can. We want to make your move as stress free as possible. For more information on Acorn and the legal services we provide call the Street Office on 01458 441507 or the Taunton Office on 01823 273010, or visit our website www.acornsolicitors.com

A new life for your old stuff

By Nick Cater, Senior Communications Office at Somerset Waste Partnership When it comes to unwanted clothes, from suits to socks, blouses to bras, far too many are ending up in the refuse bin and heading off to landfill. The average home has around £4,000 worth of clothes, almost a third of which has not been worn for a year. UK-wide, these have a total cost of £30 billion. Each year 350,000 tonnes of clothes worth £140 million go into landfill. And plenty of bulky items, such as homeware and electricals, are being recycled or thrown away when they have plenty more life in them. This month a new campaign – Green Routine 2013 – backed by Somerset Waste Partnership is urging families in Street, Walton, Ashcott and Glastonbury with possessions they no longer want or need to “Pass it on”. Reuse cuts waste so while all textiles and some bulky items, such as electrical goods, can be recycled, it is even better to “pass it on” to extend their lives. A great “Pass it on” route is making a donation to charity, from the cause-supporting shops for Oxfam, St Margaret’s Hospice and others in Glastonbury and Street. Or, especially for homeware, from fridges to furniture, carpets to crockery, contact the network of Somerset reuse groups that take items to resell at low prices to those on limited incomes. A bit of planning about passing on possessions can benefit good causes and save money, as landfill is costly, wasteful and polluting:

• Check your home for rarely worn clothes – are they unloved, outgrown, needing a revamp or repair? • Make reuse easy: have a box or bag to sort unwanted items as you go, ready to donate later. •U  se your local charity shops – have fun looking for a thrifty new outfit and other bargains. •C  heck out your local furniture reuse group for items to donate and if you can buy items. As well as encouraging people in Glastonbury, Ashcott, Walton and Street to “Pass it on” in February, Green Routine 2013 is a year-long campaign with monthly themes – from food to clutter – to help us all cut waste and save money while having fun. There are full details of “Pass it on”, from information on reuse groups and a tool to “find a charity shop”, and lots more about Green Routine 2013 on the Somerset Waste Partnership website at www.somersetwaste.gov.uk. You can sign up there for monthly emails packed with free hints, tools, links, a free colour calendar and even recipes to help you and your family save money, time and resources by cutting back on waste throughout the year. And for those keen to do a bit more, February sees training in that waste prevention garden essential, composting, in Castle Cary – full details on the website.

At the nationals they will compete with other regional groups to try to be the best across a range of sports including trampolining, golf, swimming, basketball and volleyball. In the South West Colleges competition trampolinists performed two routines consisting of ten moves - a 'compulsory routine' and a 'voluntary routine' in which the students could showcase their more advanced skills.

Knitwits Knitwits is a group of re-cycled teenagers, who meet twice monthly on the second and fourth Thursdays 2.30 to 4 pm (February 14th and 28th). Meeting place is the Hall at the rear of the United Reformed Church in Glastonbury. The group is hoping to expand its band of knitters to people who would rather knit at home, and produce the kind of goods that are needed. Knitters are of varying degrees of proficiency, from very experienced, to beginners, who knit jumpers, legwarmers, hats, mittens, scarves and clown glove puppets, etc. Knitted squares are also produced by the knitters, some of whom are in local Care Homes. These squares are then made up into blankets, some single-bed size, and some baby blankets and are sent to orphanages in Romania, Ghana, Sierra Leone, and other third world countries. If you are interested in knowing more then why not pop in, you will be made very welcome and can pick up free patterns to knit either in the group or at home. If you are in Street then you can call into the Methodist Coffee mornings - third Saturday in the month (16th Feb) from 10 am - 12 noon (opposite the Night Club, Leigh Road) where you can see sample items and pick up free patterns. Telephone contact Sheila on 01458 442620

Students compete for place in professional competition Hairdressing students at Strode College recently took part in a college hairdressing competition to win the chance to compete in the regional heats of the Wella Exposure 2013 competition. The students had to create a commercial colour, cut and style on a model. The top five students will be entered into the next round of the Wella competition, with Wella choosing 80 competitors from all the entries to go through to a regional heat in the south west this April. Five competitors from each region will then be selected for the final at Wella Professionals world studio in London in June. The Strode students who won the chance to progress to the next stage of the competition, from first to fifth, are Lorna Moule (from Bridgwater), Amanda Dunk (from Yeovil), Georgia Oliver (from Yeovil), Sophie Chappell (from Yeovil) and Lucy Reynolds (from Castle Cary). Angie Cinicola, Head judge and Head of Hairdressing, Beauty and Complementary Therapies at Strode, said: “The judges were

impressed with the high standard of technical and artistic skills displayed by the students, along with their detailed knowledge of the techniques used when questioned.” Sandra Hellier, Hairdressing Tutor at Strode College, organised the competition. She said: “We encourage our students to take part in competitions because they are a great way to showcase skills, broaden experience and stretch abilities. The students worked really hard and are looking forward to the next stage of the competition.”
