15 years in print!
This issue marks the 180th issue of the Moreton Hall Directory (and the 61st issue of the Bury St Edmunds Directory, the Southgate edition). Wow! How time flies... Some of you may even remember the very first issue 15 years ago, back then our friend Tina was at the helm, she started the publication completely single-handedly and what a success she made of it! Fast forward a few years to when Jeremy and I took over the mantle from Tina. We knew that it had already become part of the Moreton Hall community so we were always mindful to keep it relevant and a great source of local information for you all. 5 years ago, we introduced a second magazine to the Southgate area after lots of persuasion from Bob Jones (thank you Bob!) who felt it would be a great addition to the Southgate community as well as Moreton Hall. The magazine has moved on since it’s early days, and distribution is increasing all the time. We would like to take this opportunity to thank all our advertisers over the years, our readers and our contributors, without whom we simply wouldn’t be able to put the magazine together each month. We have some fantastic columnists for both the magazines, who have been with us month in month out over the years, but, a very special mention is needed for Frank Warby who has been with us since day one. I honestly cannot
8 | JANUARY 2020
remember a single issue in 15 years, when he hasn’t supplied his content, whatever has been going on in his life at the time, he never fails to make the deadline. Thank you Frank. As we move forward, we can’t ignore the fact that print publications are becoming less popular what with the internet, we’ve seen a few local publications come and go in the last 15 years, but we’re very proud to be still going strong and we hope to continue to do so for as long as possible! Please do remember to mention the directory if you contact any of the local businesses that advertise in the magazine, and let them know where you found them, we’d really appreciate it. So finally, thank you to all our readers over the years, we look forward to popping through your letterbox each month for the next 15 years!

JANUARY 2020 Welcome to 2020, here is wishing you one and all a very happy, healthy and prosperous New Year. In relation to the festive season I would like to say what a great job the town did with the events that were put on, the Christmas market and the lights switch in the town were all really good. On our estate the number of houses that were decorated was special. Mr Crack of Kembold Close has set up a Just Giving page to raise money online rather than a charity pot outside his home. Again, the community centre did not let us down with itâ€™s array of events, music, dances, kids parties, all on our doorstep, the carol service at Christ Church too. Well done to all who that helped. Mr Cracks charity house lights on Kembold Close

YOUTH CLUB Sadly we had to close the club just before Christmas due to the number of children attending, this was mainly because of the Christmas school events, however, we will be open on the second week of school and are looking forward to having all the children back, if you have children aged between 9 and 14, bring them along on Tuesday nights from 6.30pm - 8.30pm where they can meet their school friends to play games and let off steam, they can make new friends in a warm, safe environment.
Alas during the Christmas period, a lot of houses had someone trying their doors during the day and at night times, one person even caught someone pushing a piece of hooked wire through their letter box attempting to get their keys out, by the time they got the door open, the culprit was racing down the road! Just a note of advice, whether at home or out, lock your doors, donâ€™t leave the keys in the door or in easy reach. Report any strangers or strange cars or vans.
Our Woodlands Some of you may have noticed that more wood chippings have been laid in Pond Covet, I ordered some at the beginning of December and took a barrow load and spread it at the front of the covet, but was unable to do more, what a lovely surprise to find that our good friends from the Woodland Way had spread the whole Covet on Sunday. Many thanks to them and also for the wonderful work they do in our woods, keeping it tidy and clean, more of our unsung heroes. While walking through the woods be careful of branches falling and with all the wind and rain some of our older trees are falling.
Until the next time, take care

I’d like to draw your attention to a free gift! No, not one you receive, but one that you can give. We have a community blood donation point at Moreton Hall Community Centre and you are able to go along roughly once a month. You can register at my.blood.co.uk/preregister and there are already sessions on 13/01/20, 24/02/20 and 09/03/20.
Are You there, SID-ney? You may have seen our mobile Speed Indicator Device (SID) popping up from time to time. At time of writing, it currently lives in Moreton Hall. We can get traffic data from this device and it is definitely helping with safety issues in the area. Tony Whittingham and I are currently looking into the purchase of a second device which would be more for Moreton Hall alone. Thanks to Tony and Diane (amongst others) for organising it’s deployment.

We are continuing our pledge at Town Council to combat the gap left by Suffolk County Council in regards to pavements and road surfaces breaking up. I’ve spoken about this many times before, but we have a situation where some smaller, non-urgent jobs are deferred for long periods of time. My predecesor in the Chair put forwards a plan which is working. We have already resurfaced a length of pavement on Symonds Rd and we have an area in the pipeline on Heldhaw Rd which is being assessed now by highway officers. At time of printing, we should have the budget for next year agreed in order to continue works right across the town.
Can I begin by wishing you all a Happy New Year During the next 12 months the Association will continue lobbying our councillors (and others), regarding the following issues which continue to be a problem. Traffic HGVâ€™s using the roads on our estate (despite the Relief Road), has become a major cause of concern especially along the Orttewell Road. Do we need to set up a speed watch group? Air Quality With special reference to engine idling outside schools and places used by people with health problems. The Residents Association has taken an active part in meetings organised by West Suffolk Council to discuss and inform on this topic and also participated in an information stall on Bury Market in the run up to Christmas Car and lorry parking We will hopefully be ensuring that the promised change in civil parking
responsibility from the police to the district council takes place, and the enforcement required is carried out. You may have noticed the reappearance of SID ( speed indicating device ) on the estate. These are supplied and operated by the Town Council and they do have the capability to record all speeds over 30mph. Another matter which seems to have support across all residents associations is the need for a Park and Ride operation in Bury, do please let us know if you would support this? As always please do contact us if you have any estate issues, comments or suggestions at :Our Website https:// moretonhallresidents.wordpress.com. e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or you can attend our committee meeting on Thursday 16th January at 19 30 at the Community Centre.

What’s been happening at... ABBOTS GREEN Primary School Abbots Green Academy blow the cobwebs away!
What better way to embrace the chilly season than with a penguin plod? This month at Abbots Green Academy, our Reception pupils took part in a Penguin Plod! As part of the morning, families came together to support the annual fundraising event to raise over £500.00! Every child created their own penguin head wear, ready to help embark on the fun! Against the wind and rain children flew around our allweather pitch to complete a run for 5 minutes without 16 | JANUARY 2020
stopping, as the parents cheered the runners, it was fair to say there was not only a smile on everyone’s faces but pink noses too! To warm up afterwards, families came together to create penguin cookies and a well-deserved hot chocolate, however more importantly another memory to add to the collection at such a special time of year. At Abbots Green Academy, we are proud of the opportunities that we plan for our children to
share with their families in celebration of our learning throughout the year. If you would like to find out more about Abbots Green Academy, contact the school office on 01284 718818 to arrange a school tour with the Head teacher, Mrs Ang Morrison. We look forward to welcoming you soon!

TREE PLANTING AND THE CLIMATE CRISIS
ree planting is one way to absorb a bit of carbon dioxide from the air; as trees grow the carbon is formed into wood which is permanently lost to the atmosphere (at least until the wood is burnt or falls to the ground and decomposes). Another way of getting trees to grow is to do nothing, and they will grow by themselves. Around 20% of Natterer’s Wood was left to grow its own trees, which happened successfully although patchily and there was a large growth of non-native species such as Swedish Whitebeam and holm oak. Non-native species
generally support fewer insects and therefore contribute less to biodiversity and the food chain than native species do. This is because our native insects have evolved over hundreds of thousands of years to be able to efficiently exploit the tree species available to them. Woodland ways will enrich the part of Natterer’s Wood containing Swedish Whitebeam, in January, by planting some native species in the gaps. Species like English oak, birch and others will be planted, to provide a
home for the insects and the species which rely on them. Planting will be slow, because its a brambly area, and unlike self-sown trees there will be several years of weeding around the bases to stop them being overwhelmed by bramble and other species. But in the long term at least some will survive to improve the woodland biodiversity, offset a tiny bit of Moreton Hall’s carbon emissions and make the wood a nicer place to be. In a hundred years time these trees will still be growing for us.
Join us at Woodland Ways... Woodland Ways next work party is at Natterer’s Wood on Sunday 12th January at 10am. Please join us and plant a tree! No experience is needed and all are welcome; we’ll show you what to do. Wear bramble-resistant boots and trousers. For more information please see www.woodlandways.org.uk, see the Woodland Ways noticeboard in the Community Centre, contact Nick Sibbett on 01284 723847 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Happy New Year! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and got to spend time with your loved ones, and a huge thank you to all the staff in the hospital, out in the community and all the other emergency services that worked so hard to look after us and our families over the festive period. 2019 was another amazing year and thank you to every single person who supported us, be it by fundraising, volunteering, being a sponsor, and for choosing us as your charity of the year. 2020 is going to be a very exciting year for us, as we recently got to launch our Butterfly Appeal. We need to raise ÂŁ340,000 to build a dedicated indoor space within a beautiful garden so a terminally ill patient can be surrounded by their loved ones in their final days. Today approx. 25 patients will need the help of our end of life services and currently there is no dedicated space for them to have privacy and time with those who matter away from the hustle and bustle of the ward. Our vision is to create a glassfronted building which will be able to accommodate a patient in their
cha ri ty Registered Charity No. 1049223
bed. The area will be a calm and tranquil space to allow patients and their loved ones time together. Children will be able to play, pets can visit and memories to treasure can be made at one of the most vulnerable times in their lives. The garden will be full of sensory plants and a water feature and will be specially designed for ease of movement of a patient in their bed. The garden will provide an area that doesnâ€™t feel like a hospital but a sanctuary at such a difficult time. There is never a good time to say goodbye, but we all share the same vision of wishing to be surrounded by loved ones in our final hours. We need your help to make our vision a reality. To find out more or get involved please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01284 713466.

In 2020 the groupâ€™s aim is to maintain:-
In December the theme was all about Christmas and an embroidery plastic canvas was achieved. This was a tutor led session by a lady with a dry sense of humour, we had a good laugh with her. A new craft experience for us all and certainly a challenge until we got into the rhythm of counting along the rows and the turning at each end. Items used were the plastic canvas cut into shape, a tapestry needle, wool, ribbon and decorative motif.
The friendships within and hold out a hand to invite new friends to join us. Support is a vital and an integral part with which needs nurturing. Growth to prevent loss of a necessity in times of loneliness and isolation. The next meeting is on Thursday 16th January from 2pmâ€”4pm with refreshments included. Birds and Beyond Falconry are the first speaker presentation of the year. A mother and daughter team based in Bury who enjoy falconry with a passion and sharing their knowledge and experience with all ages. A wide range of activities and interactive sessions with the birds are available and even being encouraged to get close and handle these majestic animals. The programme this year, of which there are 11 meetings, sees a variety of speakers. A mixture of pain related to alternative therapies to movement to music and other interests. We are a warm and welcoming friendly group of likeminded people and encompass all needs, age ranges (18+) and gender. The atmosphere created is a warm hearted sociable blend to encourage positive feelings and for you to know you are not alone. A face-to-face non-judgmental group. Meetings are relaxed and informal for both those in pain and their loved ones. 24 | JANUARY 2020
A box and a star were given to each member to complete, sadly time was against us in the session so they were completed at home. As you can see they are very effective and as the picture shows, many designs can come together as gifts. The next crafty session is on 2nd January and the theme will be a stepper card, another new challenge. Sessions are held on the first Thursday of each month from 1pm to 4pm with refreshments included. A variety of themes will be planned for throughout the year to maintain interest. Crafting has been proven to be beneficial for wellbeing and we certainly appreciate time together in a light hearted, socially engaging atmosphere whereby we help each other, have a good laugh and go home with a sense of achievement. Both meetings are held in the small hall of Southgate Community Centre in Bury.

James became a local 344 897 8000 Champion after Slimming losing 4 stone 7.5lbs in 9 months. James Brown, from Moreton Hall, who has lost 4 stone 7.5lbs was voted as the Sybil Andrews Slimming World group’s Mr Sleek 2019, after his fellow members were wowed by his achievements. Slimming World’s annual Mr Sleek competition recognise members who have transformed both inside and out by becoming healthier and happier, slimmer and more confident, and who look great in their Christmas party clothes. The national winners of both titles will each win a £3000 cash price. James says that he was thrilled to win this respective title. James 26 who has lost 4 stone 7.5 lbs : “Being voted for by the other members of the group is really great because it’s thanks to them and their support – and our Consultant Kelly Cooper that we’ve stayed committed to losing weight. As a man, joining a slimming group is quite a nervewracking decision, yet I can honestly say it’s one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.” James began following Slimming World’s Food Optimising healthy eating plan, which encourages 26 | JANUARY 2020
members to satisfy their appetite on healthy foods like pasta, rice, potatoes, lean meat, fish, fruit and veg and more. Slimmers are able to lose weight without ever going hungry and still enjoy treats without feeling deprived, so there’s no need to miss out on their festive favourites this Christmas. Kelly Cooper , who runs the Sybil Andrew’s Slimming World group which James attends says she is extremely proud of James. She adds: “Struggling with your weight and not liking the reflection in the mirror is soul destroying, you often feel guilty, ashamed and can’t find
that Slimming World feeling!

I am pleased to announce my new wellbeing workshops, commencing in January 2020. My passion is supporting others to positively transform their wellbeing through nutritional and lifestyle factors. Speaking from experience I have managed my own health issues in this way having been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis 10 years ago. The impacts of MS were many including fatigue and neurological symptoms. My medications whilst supporting the reduction of relapses left me with additional unwanted symptoms to be managed with yet more medications. Left thinking there must be a better way, I could not accept that I was going to feel this way for the rest of my life. This led to me training at the renowned College of Naturopathic Medicine in
London gaining a Diploma in Nutritional Therapy. It saddens me that our world has developed to be that of convenience. In this we have lost the ability to know how to eat and look after ourselves, both mentally and physically.

Welcome back to the 19th hole and HAPPY NEW YEAR. Here’s hoping we are healthy and happy all year and that we can play some good golf along the way. So its at this time of year that we all made some new year’s resolutions of things we would like to do more or better this year. I have made a golfing resolution this year… its is to play more course around the country. There are so many wonderful courses around the UK and this year I am going to try and play a few more that I have never played before.
What GOLFING New Years resolution could you make for 2020? NEW SEASON – NEW START The European and PGA Tour have already re started and the early season tournaments see the Pro’s playing in the sunshine abroad. As always we have a packed schedule for the year ahead, we have all four major as always and of course the Ryder Cup at Whistling Straits… 2020 is going to be a great year of golf! Tour Stops in JANUARY – Who will start the season well? European Tour South African Open Abu Dhabi HSBC Omega Dubai Desert Classic Saudi International
PGA Tour Sentry Tournament of Champions Sony Open The American Express Farmers Insurance Open Waste Management Phoenix Open COACHES CORNER – Gain YARDAGE in 2020!! Would you like to add a few extra yards to your game this year? I certainly do, so I have put together THREE keys moves that will allow you to gain those extra yards this year.
TURN and STOP The shoulders pay a massive role in building up POWER into the backswing. Pay attention however to where YOUR shoulders STOP turning, this indicates the top of YOUR backswing. This point is far enough for you to GENERATE and USE the power you have built up, remember you have to be effective from this position and create GOOD STRIKES as well as SPEED. Don’t worry if the backswing looks SHORT, there are some amazing players that look this way and they still hit it great distances. BODY FIRST I would like to see your body lead into the downswing, your hands can then follow this will allow the body to start turning while you feel that the hands have been left behind. This creates a stretch across your body producing more POWER. A nice way to think about this is to keep your hands to the right side of your body early in the downswing, this can be monitored better in practice from a front on position like in the photo. This movement from the body means the larger muscle groups are doing more of the work, and controlling the arms and hands better through impact.

SHOULDER UP AND AWAY Getting your left shoulder working up and your chest/body opening is a great feeling to have when hitting driver. This move through impact encourages more of an upward strike with driver through impact, giving us a better launch on the ball. Better launch angles and a solid strike will GAIN YOU DISTANCE!! If you watch all of the BIG HITTERS on tour they all make this move, now I am not saying we need to do it to the same degree as those guys. However, if we can all get just a little better through impact we have the ability to add a few extra yards. The guys at PGA LIFE 365 have a videos on this topic and much more. Please visit them on YouTube at PGA LIFE 365 and donâ€™t forget to help them out with a LIKE and hit SUBCRIBE to get all of their content FREE OF CHARGE every time they release a video. I hope this edition of the 19th Hole has helped, if you would like any advice or help with your golf game please get in contact. Hereâ€™s to a great month of golf, and I will see you in February.
DECEMBER 2019 The Moreton Hall WI Christmas party this month was a singalong FULL PAGE FLIGHT LAB with the wonderful Bury Ukulele Players who were suitably attired in Christmas jumpers. We warmed up with a few rock songs, moving on to some more Christmassy songs. This was followed by a fish & chip supper and refreshments. The Bury Drop In Centre was our chosen charity this year and our members generously gave a huge box full of toiletries and the proceeds of the raffle.

CHERRY BAKEWELL SPONGE PUDDIN Cherry and almond is a heavenly combination. This fruity dessert has a sponge top and crunchy finish. Serve with plenty of custard
INGREDIENTS: 2 x 425g cans pitted black cherries, in syrup 6 tbsp cherry jam 200g butter, softened 200g golden caster sugar 3 large eggs 50g self-raising flour 140g ground almond 1 tsp almond extract 50g flaked almond icing sugar, for dusting cream or custard, to serve
METHOD: Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Tip the syrup from the cherries and the jam into a saucepan. Boil for 10-15 mins until the liquid has reduced by half and is thick and syrupy, and add the cherries to the pan. Pour into a baking dish, roughly 18 x 25cm, then set aside. In a large bowl, mix the butter, sugar, eggs, flour, almonds, almond extract and a pinch of salt with an electric whisk until combined. Dollop the sponge mixture over the cherries and spread to a smooth layer, trying not to disturb the cherries underneath too much. Scatter over the flaked almonds, then bake for 45 mins until a skewer inserted into the sponge layer comes out clean. Leave to cool for 5 mins, then dust with icing sugar and serve with cream or, better yet, custard.

Bury St. Edmunds
Bury St Edmunds Cricket Club held their Annual General Meeting in December and have elected two new captains, Ben Seabrook who had a First Class contract until 2017 with Durham has accepted the role of first team captain he is a very talented young all round player who made a significant contribution in his first season these included a debut 104 not out against Horsford scoring almost 500 runs at an average of around 30. Sean Park who has been captain for a few years will continue to play when school commitments permit and will support Ben in his new role.
Pictured : 1st team player Ben Seabrook
Tom Curran takes over from Ben Whittaker as 2nd team captain, Tom has played all his cricket at Bury St Edmunds and was a key member of the team that won promotion to Division 2 of the Two counties League last season. Promotion is important as the gap between the 1st team playing in the East Anglian Premier League is now that much closer. We reported earlier that Daniel Moriarty after discussions with Alex Stewart has secured a contract with Surrey, this is a terrific step for this promising young player it will be a loss to Bury St Edmunds but for the right reason. The other young player who joined from South Africa in 2019 Justin Broad has been given a contract by the MCC Young Cricketers and will continue to play for the club.
Indoor nets at the Victory Ground Sports Centre operated by South Lee School will commence after Christmas this will provide coaching and playing for young players boys and girls as well as ladies and senior players of all abilities. The club is keen to welcome new players young and old of all abilities please contact David Barker at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone 07876496064 for further information..

YOGA · PILATES · MEDITATION · TAI CHI · QI GONG · C Times of Change Change always seems more relevant in January, perhaps more so this year as we step into a new decade. Resolutions will be set, promises made and goals chosen. We start with good intentions, tell ourselves that this year will be different; this is the year we will make the change, achieve our dreams and live happily ever after. But by March many have given up and gone back to old ways and habits. Sometimes change is scary so it’s easier staying where we are to avoid the short term pain involved in getting to where we want to be. Sometimes we think we don’t deserve to have what we want, even though we probably do. Sometimes, we are just plain lazy! Sometimes we need to get through the mental block. So how do we make changes last? Firstly, be honest with yourself, you know your cheats and commitment levels - face them. Get outside help if you need it. Set realistic achievable goals, don’t self sabotage your work by making impossible plans that are bound to fail; it is better to begin small and keep surpassing your expectations than to start big and be constantly disappointed. Ask yourself what you really want, be precise and detailed, make it as real as possible and check in with that image every day to keep motivation going. Never set goals to keep others happy, fulfil your own potential; don’t squeeze yourself into a mould to impress people or fit in. Get support if you need it, never underestimate how much sharing the load can help. Sometimes motivating others can also motivate us so, reach out, join a club, challenge a friend, or rope in the family. It also helps to look at all aspects of your life, physical and mental health, diet, finances, relationships, home life, work environment, faith and beliefs, hobbies and leisure activities. Which bits work and which parts need updating? Have a check in with yourself and then make some lasting changes! Just take it one step at a time!

Rougham Control Tower Aviation Museum A Very Happy New Year
So 2020 is here – how the year has flown past! Before we look towards our new season we need to reflect on our past year.
We have faired very well with more visitors, more contacts with the local community and an increase in donations. All these reflect on the very hard work that the committee and volunteers put in. When I have the figures for attendance and income I will relay them to you – they genuinely reflect a very increased interest in the museum. The year contained a variety of events – the Echoes of the Past day, education evenings to youngsters (and seniors), visits by Veteran relatives and the Fly In weekend in September. All these couldn’t have taken place without ALL helpers. Our success leads to a further demand - and so I repeat – please can you help? Whatever you can assist with (skilled, knowledgeable, practical or not) you are very welcome to become involved. The final month of the year brings firstly the Annual General Meeting. The new committee (with some re-elections) was elected: Graham Sage - Chairman, Michael Brundle - Treasurer, Wendy - Sage Secretary, Clint Cansdale, Chris Day, Judith Atkins, Paul Groves and Ian Simpson (Co-opted). We wish them every success for the new season. 50 | JANUARY 2020
A very big thank you must go to two committee members standing down. Clifford Fulllam has put many years of time, energy and knowledge into the project. He has been a constant benefit, especially as Tower Manager, in keeping the museum artifacts and exhibits catalogued. Thank you Clifford. The other ‘Hands on Man’ standing back, (for a while), is Richard Phillips. He has been our ‘practical guy’ – painting, carpentry, etc. – all areas have been his! He could be around soon if his ‘Dig for Victory’ garden starts. Thank you Richard. Our second recent event is the Annual Departures Memorial Service. The weather held well for the 30 plus members and visitors who congregated at the memorial. On behalf of the Museum Chairman Graham Sage laid the wreath. The Royal British Legion where represented by the Stowmarket branch and standard bearer. Graham posted the following thank you on social media: “Thank you to everyone who turned out for “December Departure” today, Andrew Caldecott for taking the service, Rachel Hockley-Warner for excellent bugle playing,
HOME + LIFESTYLE
Cliff Hall for the talk and slide show and Wendy Sage & Rhiannan Sage for the buffet. It was so good to see you all remembering the service of all who passed through the gates at Rougham during WW2 and also enjoying Cliffs lecture and chatting afterwards. Those who served in the military never saw themselves as heroes, they were ordinary people doing extraordinary things, We Will Remember Them.” We also would like to thank the Bury Free Press for their coverage in the newspaper, together with the photographer who attended. So ---- 2020 what do we have in store? Watch this space! We will resume in March and April – Dates to Follow. The new calendar is being put together and we will bring the timetable to you next month (please have your new diaries ready). It’s been a great year, again an increase of activity on previous years. Thank you to the committee and members. Thank you to the visitors and supporters, Thank you to the Moreton Hall Directory (Amplify Design & Print). Finally – Thank you to YOU. Thank you for reading this article, this and other months, for visiting us and for telling friends, family and work colleagues about us (and I know this communication has worked). Thank you. We hope your New Year will be prosperous, happy and rewarding. We look forward to your visits to us (beginning in April) and we look forward to your help if you can assist us.

JANUARY’S 5 SIMPLE NEW YEARS’ TIPS FROM
ow exciting, the start of a new decade! However for many of us the bank balance may be looking a little light. This is the perfect chance to make a few changes to your lifestyle to save some money and help the world.
Don’t rush out to the January sales
Check your bank and credit card statements
unless you have a specific item in mind. It’s too easy to see a bargain, buy it and then regret it. What a waste of money and resources.
make sure you can account for every payment. There are a lot of cheeky scammers out there all too happy to help themselves to your hard earned cash.
We also have loads of ideas at ecofrenzy.com to help you save money by making small lifestyle changes
Walk, cycle and use public transport
Plan meals and take the downshift challenge
Put on an extra layer of clothes
7% of car journeys in the UK are less than 1 mile so you will save money, feel fitter and reduce your CO2e imprint.
Drop a brand level on your shopping (e.g. branded to own brand) to save money and reduce food waste. On average each household throws away £840 of food every year.
Back to our old favourite, reduce the thermostat temperature by 1.5C to reduce heating bills and your CO2e imprint by 10%.

ST EDMUNDSBURY GARDENERS’ SOCIETY Bringing people ‘who love gardening’ together The last meeting before Christmas deviated from the gardening theme and instead was all about candle making. Members were fascinated about the quite unusual act of how to make a candle, the utensils used, the different types of wax and implements. The act was passed down from a father to a daughter which is how the interest came about and continues to this day. Some history was included with technical details finishing off with festive traditions and afterwards an opportunity to purchase examples of the finished product. It is encouraging for us gardeners to know that traditional crafts are still alive and in safe hands for all to enjoy.
The programme planned for this year sees 5 speaker themed presentations, the first one being held in March—horticulture for those with learning difficulties. An open meeting to welcome visitors. Outings and social get togethers have also been planned so quite a lot going on to keep us all interested. January’s meeting is a post Christmas social for members only and in February the AGM takes place. Meetings are held in the evenings from 7.30pm to 9pm on a Tuesday evening. For further details and information on the Society please contact Peter on 07775 581583 or email firstname.lastname@example.org

Garden Confidential by Tom Clarke
What to do in your garden this January.. So here it is 2020 and a Happy New Year to all Gardeners. So how did January get its name? From the ruler of new beginnings, gates and doors, the first hour of the day, the first day of the month, and the first month of the year, the Roman god Janus gave January its name. He was pictured as two-headed and situated so that one head looked forward into the New Year while the other took a retrospective view. For Gardeners the New Year is a time for new objectives and renewed commitments to long-term goals.
Plant of the Month WINTER JASMINE
“Little January Tapped at my door today. And said, “Put on your winter wraps, And come outdoors to play.” Little January Is always full of fun; Until the set of sun. Little January Will stay a month with me And we will have such jolly times Just come along and see.” - Winifred C. Marshall, January

jobs for the month
Perhaps you are thinking of starting gardening for the first time here are a few steps to beginning a garden. l Tools From experience you donâ€™t need to buy new gardening tools. You can pick up decent tools from second-hand shops and car-boot fairs. However you get what you pay for and a quality spade, fork, rake, hoe, trowel, shears and secateurs will last for years. Cheaper tools will need replacing and frustrate when they no longer do the job properly. l Assess your space Consider if you are going to plant in garden beds and borders or raised beds or containers. What kind of sun does the area get? Almost all vegetables and most flowers need a good amount of full sunshine each day. Try to sketch a plan of your new garden, this will help you figure out how much of each plant you can grow and you can also consider succession planting. l Figure
out what you want to
List everything you want to grow. With the price of food rising you might want to grow vegetables. But whether you want to grow herbs, fruit or flowers have a look at some gardening books, surf the web or get 1-2 of those free garden seed catalogues and set out a little plan.
l Clear the ground On fine days in winter dig over your garden border or vegetable border. Remove all the perennial weeds. l Improve the soil Give your soil a boost by adding a 2- to 3-inch layer of compost, decayed leaves, dry grass clippings, or old manure into a trench. A trench can be about a spade deep and wide. All of your vegetable peelings can go into this trench. l Mulch To help keep weeds out and water in, cover the soil with a couple of inches of mulch. To improve a garden for growing vegetables use manure or peat. For perennials, use longerlasting mulch, such as bark chips. l Maintain your garden Little and often is the best way to go to keep on top of weeds and water plants. l Enjoy Enjoy the fruits of your labour. The exercise will have done you good and nothing tastes quite as good as home grown fruit and veg!

New Year, New Ideas Here we are at the start of 2020 - not just a new year but also a fresh decade. If you’re familiar with the Moreton Hall district, you’ll be aware of the massive changes that have taken place here over the last ten years! Writes Chris Ridgeon We have enthusiastic and energetic entrepreneurs who work in this and the more rural areas of this booming area of eastern Bury St Edmunds or Western Suffolk, depending on your Satnav preferences. The new year naturally spurs people on. They have a bright idea they want to explore. They may be just tired of the wage-slave life and want freedom and a challenge. We’ve been around for a long time as independent accountants and business advisers. We have a growing list of both start-ups and maturing businesses whose owners are understandably very passionate about their ideas. This is the time of the year when more emerge and you might be among them.
You should consider four key steps: Focus. Take time to think, plan and write a business plan. Write down all ideas and then build them into the business plan in sections like operations, marketing and finance. Evaluate. Analyse and review your ideas, identifying the resources you might need. Prioritise your ideas so that you can ensure each step is viable and you have the time and resources to complete each task or idea. Proper evaluation helps to resist taking on too much too soon! Learn. Reflect and learn from your experiences. Be honest and factual when reviewing the results of your projects and set out key action points to help you going forward. Reward. Arguably and most importantly make sure you celebrate every one of your successes, whether it was achieving a sales goal or simply learning something new – it is all a step in the right direction for ensuring business success. Don’t be afraid to blow your own trumpet. There is a fifth step. Secure sound business and financial advice. Our head office is located in Moreton Hall and we have over 90 years of experience. Need advice and help? Contact us, your first consultation is free.

BY ANDREW SOUTHWOOD
As I stood on the start line, ‘Eye of
the Tiger’ blasting out through a tiny mobile PA system, I was confident. I always am. There’s no point being there unless you are. It has been a tough summer of training for me. An injury, a stress fracture of the tibia, picked up racing in July, dictated my schedule. Yet, by September I was running again and in the last 8 weeks I’d been increasing the distances and frequency. I felt ready for this half marathon comeback race. The gun fired and we were off around the streets of Milton Keynes. I started well and found open road. My watch beeped at me every km and I knew I was maintaining my target pace. I was a little surprised to find the route was really quite twisty and turny, with sharp rightangle bends and steep inclines, over small bridges. By 7km (1/3 race distance) my watch was telling me I had slowed and in my head, I re-evaluated my target, from a dreamland goal down to ‘just’ getting a personal best. By the halfway point my sole
68 | JANUARY 2020
target now was finishing in a reasonable time. It was about then my quads seized up. They went solid and painful, to the point I almost had to come to a standstill. Not something I’d experienced before. The tight turns and slopes had basically done them in. With about 5km to go (of 21km) the discomfort was so bad I briefly thought about stopping. Then I remembered my pre-race pep talk I always give my son. The one about how it will hurt, and you might even fall, but you get up and you will finish the race, and finish it with everything you’ve got, head held high. I gave myself a verbal slap around the face and gave everything I had to stay on the heals of the man in front. Ironically, in the last 800m or so my legs loosened up and I was able to sprint home in relatively comfortable fashion. However, the clock had relentlessly been rolling on, and I was a few seconds outside of a PB. I was
angry and upset. I basically grabbed my medal and t-shirt, and was in the car driving home within 10 mins of crossing the line. A short while later, whilst drowning my sorrows at a service station McDonalds, still wearing my full running kit (with obligatory addition of finishers t-shirt), I reflected a little more rationally. I had set myself tough, unrealistic goals, and now I was beating myself up about them. That was ridiculous. As I hobbled back to the car, my legs now suffering badly from the lack of any sort of cool down, I walked past a family sat in their car eating a drive through meal. The dad was tapping the steering wheel as the car radio played ‘Eye of the Tiger’. We caught each other’s eye and I smiled. I think he thought I was a nutter, and in some ways he’s probably right… as I’d already googled my next half marathon race just moments earlier.

WeFor Make Dogs Happy! Is Teaching You? Many of us can identify significant teachers who have had a real impact on the people we have become. They may have inspired love of a particular subject, helped us to develop essential skills or grasp life-changing ideas or, through encouragement and faith, given us the confidence to believe in ourselves. Certainly, most teachers are motivated by the desire to ‘make a difference’ to the children and young people. Teaching is a tremendously creative job. Finding out about the children in your class, and learning how best to motivate and engage them, helps you to bring the curriculum alive for your pupils. Schools are very special communities. As teachers, we don’t only work with children but also with parents and carers. It is so fulfilling to touch the lives of local families, building those relationships which may influence the development of a child for years to come. I can honestly say that I have had great fun as a primary school teacher. I love working with young children who help me to appreciate the world afresh by sharing their unique perspectives and new ideas. Yes, the hours can be long (planning, marking and assessment can take many hours) and work does not end ‘when the bell goes’, but the rewards are great when you get those ‘light bulb’ moments or you see a child blossom.

THEATRE STAR TRAIL WINNERS ANNOUNCED Theatre Royal Bury St Edmunds and Our Bury St Edmunds BID have today announced the winners of the Theatre Star Trail which took place over the summer in celebration of the theatre’s 200th Anniversary year. The winners were invited to the theatre to collect their prizes and have a photo taken together on the stage. 25 stars were placed around the town centre, each one with the name of a celebrity performer who has appeared at Theatre Royal Bury St Edmunds, including Joanna Lumley, Dame Judi Dench, DBE; Sir Ian McKellen, CBE; Sir Derek Jacobi, CBE; Julian Clary, Michael McIntyre and more; participants were tasked with finding all of them, noting the names down on an entry form and handing them in. The correctly completed entries were gathered up, and a random draw took place in the theatre in late November, the ten winners were then invited to a prize giving ceremony on stage where a photo was also taken. Mark Cordell, CEO of the Our Bury St Edmunds Business Improvement District (BID) said: “I was delighted to work in partnership with Theatre Royal to celebrate their 200th Anniversary by creating the Star Trail, which proved a popular attraction in our town centre during this year. It was great to see some of the performers featured on a star, visit the theatre during 2019. The trail this year was a little longer to walk around than our previous Wolf and WW1 trails but I was delighted to receive so many correct entries and I hope all the winners enjoy their prizes.”
72 | JANUARY 2020
Julia Read, Head of Development at the theatre said: “Theatre Royal is a registered charity and the Star Trail raised a really splendid amount of £10,500 sponsorship from some of our wonderful local businesses. Their collective sponsorship and generosity contributed significantly towards Theatre Royal’s annual £170,000 fundraising target which goes towards its operating costs.” The trail’s sponsors in full are: Abbeycroft Leisure, Abbeyfields Clinic, Abbeygate Cinema, Angel Hotel, Ashtons Legal, Beckett Investment Management, Brancaster House, Century Logistics, Churchgates, Coastline Graphics, Ellisons Solicitors incorporating Gross & Co., Greene & Greene, Greene King, Jacobs Allen, JM Finn, Larkbridge, Oakes Barn, Our Bury St Edmunds BID, Sheridans, St Edmundsbury Wealth Management, The Arc, The Old Cannon, Troy and Vivien Gainsborough-Foot. The conclusion of the star trail is the penultimate event in Theatre Royal’s 200th Anniversary celebrations, with the pantomime Peter Pan forming a glittering finale to the year. The theatre has just recently announced its new spring 2020 season with another packed line-up of shows and events. Full details can be found on the website – www. theatreroyal.org, or by collecting a brochure from the theatre or various information points around Bury St Edmunds.

The Sleep Lab at Glasswells The best night’s sleep you’ve had for years There’s nothing more important than a good night’s sleep – something we can promise you’ll get with the huge selection of beds at Glasswells. From fold out sofa beds, to children’s bunks, bed frames, mattresses and luxury divan sets, our sleep experts will help you find the perfect fit. Five reasons why a bigger bed is better Do you wake up still tired? This could be down to not enough space in your bed! A larger bed shouldn’t be seen as a luxury, but a necessity. 1. You spend a THIRD of your life in bed This means that by the time you are 60 you’ll have spent around 20 years in bed! This is a huge amount of time, so it’s essential that the bed you are in provides a quality night’s sleep. Glasswells sleep experts can help to ensure your new bed is perfectly suited to you, and your partner if you are sharing; not only will this improve sleep quality, but it will also mean your bed and mattress will last you longer. 2. 16 other countries can’t be wrong! This is how many countries have – on average – larger bed sizes than we do in the UK. Many other European countries sleep in spacious 160cm by 200cm beds, whereas Brits traditionally buy a double THE BIG WINTER (135cm by 190cm). Pop into your local Glasswells to test out the different sizes, once you’ve slept in a king size bed or bigger, you’ll never want to go back. 3. There’s no easy way to say this, but you may not be as slim as you once were… As we get older, unfortunately, our bodies change. Did you know that a double bed gives each sleeper just 65cm (2’3”) of sleeping space – this is less than a baby’s cot! A king size bed comes in at 150cm wide (that’s 75cm of space each) and a super king is 180cm, which is the equivalent of two single beds put together. 4. People move 60-70 times per night Once the honeymoon period is over, you really should try to put as much space SAVINGS between yourself and HUGE ACROSS your partner as possible! This will reduce the chance of your sleep being disturbed andFURNISHING should mean you ALL HOME wake up refreshed and ready for the day ahead. Who said romance was dead! DEPARTMENTS 5. It doesn’t actually cost much more You may think that going up a size or two would be a lot more expensive, but it really isn’t. Each £100 you spend on a new bed works out as just 3.9p per day over 7 years, a small investment for something so important for aiding your general health and wellbeing. Glasswells often run promotions where you can buy a king size bed for the price of a double bed, making those all-important extra inches even more affordable.
We all spend as much as we can afford on the best possible home, holiday, car and mobile phone, and the same should be said for our beds – it’s our haven, the place we recharge and refresh our bodies and minds. So, if your bed is over seven years old, or not providing the great level of sleep that you deserve, visit your local Glasswells and let our sleep experts guide the way to a perfect night’s sleep.

MORETON HALL By the time you read this Christmas will be well and truly over and we will have seen the New Year in. It’s time to say a big thank you for all who contributed to the 600 shoe boxes we collected. Thank you for the hundreds of pounds raised by Christingle for the Children’s society that helps homeless teenagers. Thank you for the car loads of food sent to the food bank this Year. You are a very generous community. You may not know this but the three Kings, who are often remembered at the centre of the Christmas celebrations, only arrived some weeks after the birth of Jesus and not with the shepherds. All those Christmas cards are pretty but wrong. The Church has always known this and has a special season of the year called Epiphany to cover the event. What 82 | JANUARY 2020
‘Epiphany’ means is ‘Christ is revealed’; it is about sudden revelation. When people talk about having an epiphany, it means they see something they have never seen before, something which changes everything for them. As we begin our life together with a new government, it is worth remembering that the Kings, or wise people, came to pay tribute to Jesus, in other words to do Him homage. They were acknowledging more than He was a God and a sacrifice; they were acknowledging that He had the power over every king and every kingdom. Some people think Christianity seems to be dying out in Western Europe and particularly in England. Just because fewer and fewer people go
to church it does not mean that people have stopped believing. Even if there are fewer believers it does not mean that God has stopped existing. It does not matter if people have stopped believing in Him, God is still God. The Kingdom that Jesus brought will never come to an end. He is still Lord over all peoples and Lord over every political system and kingdom. His kingdom is still growing if not so much here. So as we face a somewhat uncertain future it is worth remembering that Jesus is still here; He is still guiding and helping; still here to support us. Not only does He have a plan for your life, He has a plan for this nation’s life. As we look back through history this country has always played a significant role in world affairs both when it was poor,
HOME + LIFESTYLE
January Services broken and isolated as well as when it when it was rich, famous and powerful. Part of the good news is that God has not finished with us yet and God has not finished with you yet. So, as we begin a New Year, join me in prayer asking God to guide you as an individual and us as a people into His Kingdom for in His kingdom justice prevails and all are provided for. Remember this above all else, He loves you more than you could ever possibly imagine, and therefore there is no need for recrimination, argument, backbiting, or false accusation; rather now is the time to seek peace, love, joy and, wherever possible, genuine reconciliation.

A BEAUTIFUL DAY IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD Director Marielle Heller Cast Tom Hanks, Matthew Rhys, Susan Kelechi Watson, Chris Cooper n Tom Hanks portrays Mister Rogers in A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood, a timely story of kindness triumphing over cynicism, based on the true story of a real-life friendship between Fred Rogers and journalist Tom Junod. After a jaded magazine writer (Emmy winner Matthew Rhys) is assigned a profile of Fred Rogers, he overcomes his skepticism, learning about empathy, kindness, and decency from America’s most beloved neighbor.

QUEEN & SLIM
Director Melina Matsoukas
Cast Daniel Kaluuya, Jodie Turner-Smith, Indya Moore, Bokeem Woodbine, Chloe Sevigny, Flea While on a forgettable first date together in Ohio, a black man (Get Out’s Daniel Kaluuya) and a black woman (Jodie Turner-Smith, in her first starring feature-film role), are pulled over for a minor traffic infraction. The situation escalates, with sudden and tragic results, when the man kills the police officer in self-defense. Terrified and in fear for their lives, the man, a retail employee, and the woman, a criminal defense lawyer, are forced to go on the run. But the incident is captured on video and goes viral, and the couple unwittingly become a symbol of trauma, terror, grief and pain for people across the country.
Director Taika Waititi
Cast Roman Griffin Davis, Thomasin McKenzie, Taika Waititi, Rebel Wilson, Stephen Merchant, Alfie Allen, with Sam Rockwell and Scarlett Johansson Writer director Taika Waititi (THOR: RAGNAROK, HUNT FOR THE WILDERPEOPLE), brings his signature style of humour and pathos to his latest film, JOJO RABBIT, a World War II satire that follows a lonely German boy (Roman Griffin Davis as Jojo), whose world view is turned upside down when he discovers his single mother (Scarlett Johansson) is hiding a young Jewish girl (Thomasin McKenzie) in her attic. Aided only by his idiotic imaginary friend, Adolf Hitler (Taika Waititi), Jojo must confront his blind nationalism.
SPIES IN DISGUISE Director Nick Bruno, Troy Quane
Cast Will Smith, Tom Holland, Karen Gillan, Goldie Hawn, Rashida Jones, DJ Khaled Super spy Lance Sterling (Will Smith) and scientist Walter Beckett (Tom Holland) are almost exact opposites. Lance is smooth, suave and debonair. Walter is... not. But what Walter lacks in social skills he makes up for in smarts and invention, creating the awesome gadgets Lance uses on his epic missions. But when events take an unexpected turn, Walter and Lance suddenly have to rely on each other in a whole new way. And if this odd couple can’t learn to work as a team, the whole world is in peril. SPIES IN DISGUISE is an animated comedy set in the high-octane globe-trotting world of international espionage. JANUARY 2020 | 85
