Going on Holiday –

Are you parking at the airport?

Did you know that there are several different parking options you could book, depending on which best suits your travel arrangements. Let’s look at your options... Off-airport parking Generally the lowest cost option a free transfer bus will take you and your passengers into the Airport. You will need to leave your vehicle keys with this type of parking.

Official on-airport parking This is the parking run by the airport, often the more expensive option. There is usually a long term car park and short term car park. The Short stay is generally within walking distance to the terminal, with the long term usually a free bus ride away. Here you park your own car and keep your keys.

Meet and Greet or Valet parking Ideal for those with lots of luggage, mobility issues or if you’re travelling with bulky items like skis or golf clubs. You get met by a chauffeur in the designated meet and greet area, usually outside the terminal. Your vehicle is then collected and whisked off to a secured compound before it is bought back to the airport on your return. This option is becoming very popular and is probably much cheaper than you would expect.

At BookFHR.com we've been assisting customers since 1986 providing the top car parks at airports across the UK, at the cheapest prices. All you need to do is choose the option best suited to your trip, safe in the knowledge that we’ve done all the hard work for you.

Community Hero: Rosario Gutierrez Just before Xmas our dog Prince was diagnosed with a grade three cancerous Mast Cell Tumour. I took him to my local vet who operated on him to remove the lump but after the biopsy the lab report showed that a vast number of cancerous cells had been left behind. Things were not looking very promising for Prince and we were told to prepare for the worst. We were referred to an oncologist who suggested we try a three month course of chemotherapy. This was such a tough decision to make because Prince was so scared of going to the vet and this meant that he would need to be sedated every time for them to administer the chemo.

His chemotherapy drugs were ordered and his first session was scheduled for the following Thursday. A few days later I noticed another lump appearing so I rang Horsebridge who asked me to bring him in immediately. As soon as Rosario saw the lump she arranged for him to come in the very next day for another operation but this time she explained to me that she was intending to remove a much bigger area so that we had more chance of getting all of the cancerous cells. She was determined to cure him.

A few days later we received the results of the biopsy and this amazing lady had done as she promised and had removed not only the lump but all of the surrounding cancerous cells. In a matter of days, we had gone from preparing to say goodbye to him to being cancer free. This woman truly is an angel from heaven. People like this deserve to be recognised and thanked for all their hard work and dedication. She has completely turned our life around.

On the day of the operation, Rosario let me hold him whilst she gave him his pre-med to sedate him and it was over before he had even realised.

We were referred to Horsebridge Veterinary I collected him later that evening and Practice where we met Rosario and her wonderful team. After speaking to Rosario within two days he was running around chasing his tail much to my dismay. and watching her with Prince I felt so much better. I knew he was in safe hands.

TV Presenter and Action Medical Research ambassador Davina McCall is asking like-minded local ladies (and a few gentlemen) to join her on 11th May for a fundraising bike ride, starting in Uckfield. Now in it’s fourth year, the ride which consists of a cool 21 mile route, a classic 40 mile ride or for those of you keen cyclists after even more of a challenge, a champion route covering over 65 miles, is a key fundraising event for Action Medical Research – a charity which researches conditions affecting babies and children.

Soraya Ebrahimi PR Officer for Action Medical Research explains. “Picturesque villages and stunning scenery are par for the course as you clock up the miles on any one of the three distances available.” Last year alone, 400 women hopped on their bikes and joined Davina to raise over £60,000 to support research into meningitis, Down’s Syndrome, epilepsy and premature births and this year the charity is hoping for an even bigger turn out with a special limited number of places for men available to join in the fun.

HEALTH AND BEAUTY

The Confidence to Succeed What would you do if you knew you could never fail? Throughout our lives we are encouraged to succeed, in our studies, in our work and in our daily lives. Failure, we are always led to believe, is not an option. Failure leads us to believe that we can’t and perseverance is futile. Look at it from another perspective! How many times as a child did you fall down before learning to take those first steps? Or in later years you learned to ride a bike, maybe initially with stabilisers and a parent or guardian by our side, but eventually those stabilisers came off and there was just no stopping you. Maybe along the way you hit a few pot holes but you were always heading forward.

I have recently been invited to become an International Mentor for business women under the guidance of the Cherie Blair Foundation. It’s an honour to be allowed to be involved in such a worthwhile charity. Now as a mentor, whether to an international mentee or a hypnotherapy client, you will never find me telling anyone what to do. The person you choose to be your mentor should encourage you to reach your own goal, guiding you through the journey but never directing it. It really doesn’t matter what job you do or where you are in life’s journey. Sometimes a mentor can encourage you to find your own direction again. If it’s good enough for Richard Branson……

Don’t ever consider it a weakness to ask for some guidance along the way. As we grow, we forgot these The strongest people are the important learning processes ones that have the confidence we go through as a child. to ask for advice.

What is hypnotherapy? Hypnotherapy is a natural state of heightened awareness that occurs within all of us. It allows us to open our minds to beneficial suggestions and allows the client to use their imagination to make positive changes. A brief way to describe a feeling similar to hypnosis is that moment you've been watching TV and not heard a word that's been said, even though you've been staring straight at the screen. Alternatively it's the car journey where you wonder how you got to a certain place. Your mind is on auto-pilot and must have been in control, otherwise there would probably have been an accident. What can hypnotherapy help with?  Addictions (e.g. nicotine)  Anger management  Anxiety  Blushing  Bruxism (teeth grinding) Chronic Fatigue Syndrome*  Depression  Exam Nerves  Fear of Flying  Food Addiction  Eating Disorders  Gastric Band Hypnotherapy  Insomnia  Internet addiction  Irritable Bowel Syndrome  Low Self Confidence  Low Self-Esteem  Obsessions & Compulsions  Childbirth  Confidence  Fears and phobias  Grief  Habits e.g. nail biting  Health  Memory  Relaxation  Performance  Personal development  Regression  Relationships  Sexual problems  Sleep Disorders  Sports performance  Stress and anxiety  Weight loss

The nutritional programme that re-sets hormones in order to reach a natural weight.

Tanya, 46, as a trained nutritionist and foodie specialises in a German nutritional programme called Metabolic Balance® which is designed to re-set your hormone levels, particularly insulin, in order to regulate fat storage.

''We are all creating too much insulin, because we eat the wrong foods, and we eat too regularly. Insulin is a storage hormone that stops us accessing our fat stores. Keep insulin levels low and you create more glucagon, which tells the liver to start burning fat for energy.”

www.mantramagazines.co.uk

What is it good for? Depending on the amount of weight a client has to lose, the first two to three weeks can result in a stone or more in weight loss. Significantly, this is not water or lean muscle loss, as with many diets, but fat.

Who’s a believer? Boy George is perhaps the most famous MB success story. Tanya herself has coached many clients to a leaner and more healthy lifestyle.

Wonderful Windows They keep in the warmth and keep out prying eyes, but window treatments are much more than a purely practical addition to a room, says Katherine Sorrell Curtains – where to start The cheapest and most subtle option for hanging curtains is undoubtedly a plastic or metal track. Double tracks can be used to hang both nets and thicker curtains neatly, while triple tracks allow you to use flat panels, perhaps of different fabrics, which can be pulled back and forwards in different combinations depending on the effect you want or how much light you wish to allow in. The more decorative alternative is a curtain pole – perhaps in see-through acrylic, slender stainless steel or pale-painted wood – and with pretty finials on the ends. On narrow windows or dormers, portiere (or swing-arm) rods are an alternative to fixed poles, while for a modern effect you could use tension wire, fixed taut within the window opening. Curtains – fabric and style Whether you prefer minimal panels or swathes of fabric, it is best to take into account the architecture and size of the room, and of the windows, before opting for a particular curtain style. Grander curtains tend to suit larger, period rooms, while simple curtains are often best suited to modern properties. The way in which a curtain hangs is determined by its heading, usually created by a tape which is sewn onto the back of the curtain and pulled to form gentle gathers, smart pleats or a variety of other shapes. For a less formal look, however, there are plenty of alternatives. Tab- and tie-tops are often found on ready-made curtains, though they can be fiddly to draw. Curtains can also be hung from a deep hem which is simply slid

over a pole, from large eyelets punched in the top (this looks great hung from a tension wire), from clips (magnetic ones are easy to use) or even just from hooks. Curtains can be made from practically any fabric, depending on your budget. The heavier the fabric, the better it will hold a fold, though very heavy fabrics will be too bulky for smaller windows. Very light fabrics will tend to look floppy unless supported by a lining. Lining is, in fact, always a good idea, as it will not only help the fabric hang neatly, but also protect it from fading, dirt and condensation. Thermal linings help retain heat, and can be as effective as double glazing, while blackout lining also blocks out light and some noise.

When choosing fabrics, mid-weight, not-too-textured fabrics tend to be best for blinds, which need to roll or fold easily against themselves.

Shutters They may not be the obvious choice, and they are almost always more expensive than blinds or simple curtains, but shutters are good-looking Blinds Once considered something of a poor cousin in an unfussy kind of way and suit both old and to curtains, blinds are increasingly fashionable, new properties. Depending on the configuration offering a clean-lined look that is sophisticated of your window, shutters can be made as a and laid-back yet still pleasingly tactile.

The plainest, period-type different options to suit different styles of shutters have a timber frame and a solid centre room, many of them easy to make yourself panel – they can be painted any colour and or inexpensive to buy off-the-shelf.

Keeping Pests at Bay the Natural Way

I garden organically and use biological controls regularly. If your conservatory is also a place where you relax or enjoy a drink or a meal, it is especially important not to fill it with potentially harmful chemicals. To use these controls you will need to make sure that your greenhouse or conservatory is not already packed full of chemical residues - otherwise they may kill the beneficial creatures Greener gardening is not difficult, it is just you are introducing. For whitefly you different. Many infuriating pests can thrive need a tiny parasitic wasp called Encarsia and or red spider mite you need the in greenhouses and conservatories, but predatory Phytoseiulus mite. Introduce there are now many ‘natural’ controls these amongst infested plants and they available in the form of predators and will automatically search out the pests, parasites, which can be purchased soon getting their numbers under control from mail order suppliers (including without you having to lift a finger. www.pippagreenwood.com) and then released indoors. These insects or mites It may sound off-putting to release wasps do a great job of keeping common pests at bay, including whitefly, red spider mite or mites indoors but these little creatures are tiny and will not bite or sting: and mealy bugs. There are also excellent they are only interested in the pests. controls available for slugs and for vine weevils, both of which can be used Biological controls are tricky for garden successfully outside too. centres to stock, as living creatures won’t survive if left sitting on a warm shelf. Other outdoor pests which can be controlled include leather jackets and chafer Mail order is therefore the best way to buy generally, with your predators or parasites grubs and there is even a control to send ants off in the other direction – wonderful arriving in the post, along with strict if you like to lie on the lawn or enjoy meals instructions for storage and using before the use-by date. in your garden without being nipped! More and more people have become concerned about using chemicals in the garden, with some gardeners having used chemicals rarely, if at all, for years. Perhaps you are concerned about wildlife and conservation, or using pesticides on plants that children or pets might play near, or that you intend to eat.

Garden Services

But don’t let this put you off: biological controls are excellent and used by professional growers. To ensure success you must follow the instructions precisely and make sure you introduce the control when there are only a few pests around. If the air is choked with whitefly it can be a bit too much of an uphill struggle for the tiny little wasps. But the great thing is that you can relax in the knowledge that you’re not jeopardising any wildlife and that, in many cases, the biological control becomes self-perpetuating as the ‘critters’ you have bought breed and spread. Now that’s what I call useful.

PROMOTIONAL FEATURE

The Rise of the Urban Fox As a retired Gamekeeper of some 40 years I have noticed that in the last 2 years or so I have had many phone calls from people who have a serious problem with foxes in gardens. These calls usually follow householders losing chickens, fowl or pet rabbits to attacks by foxes. Generally these foxes have taken up residence close by, under sheds or decking, sometimes having been encouraged by being fed household scraps. Apart from being a menace, foxes carry a range of diseases which can affect the health of our pet dogs and children. Sarcoptic Mange is caused by mites and is highly contagious. It results in extreme irritation and loss of fur and left untreated can prove fatal. Mange can be passed to dogs from foxes through leaving fur and mites on outbuildings, sheds and posts where they have rubbed their bodies because of the intense itchiness of the infected skin.

Pest Control & Advisory Service

If the infected dog then sleeps on beds or furniture, or plays with toddlers or small children, there will be a heightened risk of transmission. Fortunately scabies in humans is self-limiting, in that although the mite can burrow under the skin and cause itching, it cannot complete its life cycle on humans and will die within a few weeks. Toxocariasis is caused by a parasitic roundworm, toxocara canis. Infected animals pass microscopic eggs in their faeces. Toddlers and babies learning to crawl are most at risk of being infected as they have a habit of putting their hands in their mouths or playing with toys which may have come into contact with infected faeces. If they are swallowed these eggs release larvae into the intestine, which can remain in the body until they die up to several years later.

Advice, assistance and legal solutions for all aspects of pest prevention and control from rats and foxes to larger mammals

It is important to note that as well as clearing up and disposing of fox faeces, it is just as imperative to clear up and dispose of cat and dog faeces as they can also be carriers of this disease.

Weil’s disease (Leptospirosis) - Foxes and rats are also susceptible to Weil’s disease. This is a potentially life threatening condition and can be passed on to domestic pets and humans via contact with their urine.

CRB Approved Fleas and ticks are carried by most foxes, and can be transmitted to our pet dogs, who in turn will deposit larvae and fleas on our furniture and carpets where small children will play. If you are experiencing problems with unwelcome foxes, I am always happy to help or provide advice, Colin Taylor.

CHILDREN AND EDUCATION

Beating Exam Stress

The summer exam period, be it A-Levels, GCSEs or SATS, can be one of the most challenging and stressful times for a student and their family. Minimise the effect stress has on your child with our top tips: Eat Eating right has been proven to help both exam performance and anxiety levels in children and young people. Fill them up on balanced carbohydrates, leafy greens and oily fish, and limit the amount of processed foods, fizzy drinks and sweets consumed to avoid mood swings or hyperactivity. Sleep Like eating, sleep is of vital importance to keep those nerves at bay. Contrary to the eight hour popular belief, the

26 - CHILDREN AND EDUCATION

NHS actually recommends children aged 11 get 9.5 hours sleep per night, 8.5 for those aged 16 and 8 hours each night for young adults. To ensure that your child winds down before heading off to bed, get them to stop studying and away from the computer at least thirty minutes beforehand. Talk While it may seem that your child is too busy revising to talk, make sure that they put the books down and step away from the computer for a one-on-one catch up to see how they are coping. Many students may keep their exam worries to themselves, resulting in headaches, stomach aches and irritability but as they say, a problem shared is a problem halved so get talking!

T N UNCOVERED

Treat Whether it’s a trip to the cinema, an evening out with friends or a little gift, reward your children after every few exams to let them know you recognise how hard they are working. If they aren’t able to take an afternoon off from a busy revision schedule, take time to do something after the stressful exam period is over. No Pressure Perhaps the most important advice – ensure that your child is under no pressure from their family. As tensions run high, keep positive and avoid any criticism, especially before an exam. After all, an exam can be taken again; it’s not the end of the world if they don’t get the grade that they want!

ACTION FOR DEAFNESS

Action for Deafness Founded by a group of Deaf and hard of hearing people, Action for Deafness is celebrating 20 years of delivering exemplary services to Deaf and hard of hearing people, this year. Core funding was secured from West Sussex County Council in April 1994. Twenty years later, the organisation has expanded and now provides a comprehensive range of services for Deaf and hard of hearing people including NHS Audiology services, lip reading classes, Deaf awareness training, sign language classes and an advocacy service. The services are available from two large Resource Centres in Haywards Heath and Worthing which also have a full range of assistive listening devices available for demonstration and sale. The charitable organisation also operates from outreach clinics around West Sussex. Last year alone Action for Deafness saw over 13,000 people for audiology appointments and serviced over 17,000 hearing aids at its drop in clinics. Action for Deafness is a qualified provider of NHS adult rehabilitation audiology services and was the first provider to gain UKAS accreditation for its audiology facilities.

30 - ACTION FOR DEAFNESS

It now has six audiology centres across the County. State of the art equipment is used for testing hearing and fitting hearing aids and on going support is always available at any of our centres. Action for Deafness has a team of dedicated volunteers who run the outreach clinics and can provide home visits to those who are house bound. More than ten million people in the UK have a hearing loss and this number is expected to grow in the coming years so there is much work to be done. The organisation has already expanded further this year, adding more audiology rooms in Haywards Heath and Worthing. Patient satisfaction is high with 98% of patients saying they would recommend the service to a friend. To celebrate 20 years of service provision the charity hopes to raise ÂŁ20,000 from fundraising events throughout the year. More information can be found in our Resource Centres or on line at www.actionfordeafness.org.uk
