EDITOR’S LETTER

WELCOME TO THE

JULY

ISSUE

Hello and welcome to our July issue. Well, after a week in the sun, I am feeling refreshed and ready for the summer! I was lucky enough to miss the heavy downpour of rain we had here in the UK for that whole week, but sadly came back to a backlog of gardening as the grass has grown nearly as tall as me! Ok, I may not be 6ft but it is still very, very long!! We had a lot of entrants for last months crossword competition, with a prize of Tea for Two at Ravenwood Hotel, so we thought, let’s do another one! This months prize is another Tea for Two, but this time at the lovely Glasswells Coffee Shop! So grab your pen and turn to page 46. Crafty foxes on page 59 has another great make for the kids to try out and if you are thinking about redecorating and getting rid off the winter decor, think pink! Go to pages 90-91 for some inspiration. Until next month!

Gemma

Last months lucky crossword winner of Tea for Two at Ravenwood Hotel, Rougham was Isabel Glasscock. Well done!

PARKING / DOG / VANDALS

PARKING

It’s been one of those months, parking problems all over the place. Sadly, in most cases the problem has been on land that the council has no power over, the council can only take action where the problem takes place on the highways controlled by the County Council. There are so many roads that have not yet been adopted by the Council and therefore are the responsibility of the developers. Some of these roads have been there for over ten years and are still waiting to be adopted, which means these roads and grass areas will not be maintained by the council. I have requested a map showing these areas, when I get it I will publish it. There is a problem with parking on the estate, especially where there is no path, people seem to park wherever they like without giving a thought for others, sadly, as this is on private land the council have no jurisdiction and cannot intervene, however, that said, where these vehicles cause an obstruction for fire and ambulances, the police can take action. It would be much better if people were a little more caring.

YOUTH CLUB

The club is in good shape and we now have a new helper, she is Mrs Giadian Vasnic, Giadian is a social worker and is very keen to get involved, so we now have Vickie, Erica and Giadina, all we need now is one or two dads, that will bring new blood, new ideas, if you have a couple of hours free once a month please join us. We would love to have you with us.

10 | JULY 2019


VANDALS

We have had a spell of about two years without much vandalism but sadly there has been some in May/June, bottles smashed on paths on the football fields, the play areas, the youth club and other places. The worst thing is that these are areas where children walk to school, walkers take their dogs, the elderly go to doctors. It could result in children being taken to hospital or dogs taken to the vets inflicting heavy vet bills. There has also been some idiots breaking utility signs by kicking them down, breaking young saplings, ripping out plants form gardens and planters, there is no need for this and if these idiots realise the costs of replacing the property then perhaps they might stop.

DOG FOULING

I have had so many complaints regarding dog fouling, it’s almost an everyday occurrence. There is not a lot that can be done about it unless the persons who are not clearing up after their dog or in some cases dogs can be named, then they can be fined up to £1,000. There is a lady who walks on Ten Acre with three dogs all off leads running in all directions, she could never know when or if her dogs have fouled. I have heard about another lady who takes her dog out and lets it foul on a piece of grass near the homes and never clears up, if anyone knows who she is, please let me know and I will report her, as dog owners we have a responsibility to clear up after our dogs, don’t rely on others to do it for you. “There is no such thing as the poo fairy”!

That’s all for now, it’s been a very busy time, will have more news once the council have settled in. Until next time, take care. Frank Warby JULY 2019 | 11

Kicked into the Long Grass

You will have noticed many grass areas which have not been cut recently. It has been very disappointing that the officers have not given me a satisfactory explanation as to why, but we know there is a backlog and that “the team has been a bit delayed”. Each bit of land has a regular schedule for cutting in the summer months, for example Layhill Covert is every three weeks. I managed to get this area and Ten Acre Field done quite quickly after reports, however some others, such as Heldhaw Rd await work at time of writing. we are exploring the possibility of planting wildflower verges which are lower maintenance and I’d love to hear your opinions on the number/email below. Is it a great eco idea or will it look messy?

Get on Your Soap Box!

An advance reminder that the My WiSH charity has brought back the fabulous Soap Box Challenge for a second year. This was a great charity event seeing some local thrill seekers career down Mount Rd in homemade go carts. I bumped into one of this year’s competitors at one of my customers this month who will be representing the Police Cadets and you can see pictured their cart build in progress. Please support our local hospital charity on 31st August- I’ll be attending and I’ll see you there!

A Step in the Right Direction You will have seen that the Town Council funded PPS work to the pavement on Symonds Rd at Pond Covert has been completed. Thanks to all who have responded to my article last month. We have applications in for Barton Rd, more Symonds Rd, Kembold Close, Oswyn Close and Heldhaw Rd. Not all will be undertaken, as it is still the County Council who sign the work off, but at least we’re making noise and putting in for our area. 07810 868986 | peter.thompson@westsuffolk.gov.uk 14 | JULY 2019

Welcome everyone Our County, District and Town Councillors are now settling in, and will be pleased to hear any concerns or answer any questions you may have. If you have difficulty contacting them, please let us know. We are aware that there have been some teething problems with email addresses. Association of Associations Meeting Robert and I attended the last meeting of the Association of Associations, where representatives of residents associations in Bury meet to discuss common topics. One topic was air quality with a presentation from Cllr Diane Hind. A Town wide Forum is being arranged to discuss this further, and one possible result may be, a vehicle anti-idling policy. We will continue to participate in these meetings to ensure your views are shared across the Town. Community Centre Meetings attended by the Residents Association are being held to deal

with the refurbishment and possible enlargement of the premises. Discussions are also taking place regarding the increase in available parking and parking control. Finally fears of break-ins have prompted an increase in home security systems such as Hive. The range of these systems can be such that your system could also capture your neighbour’s activities and as such be an invasion of their privacy. The onus is on the owner of the system to ensure this doesn’t occur so please try to ensure CCTV coverage is of your property only. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any concerns at secretatymhra@ gmail.com or our web site https:// moretonhallresidents.wordpress.com/ You can also attend our next committee meeting on Thursday 4th July at 7.30pm at the Community Centre.

W hat’s been happening at...

ABBOTS GREEN Academy The holidays arrived early for the Year 6 pupils at Abbots Green this month. With a 5am start, the energy and enthusiasm could be heard from streets around as the children started their adventure to Torquay. As part of the week children were able to take part in some exciting activities such as swimming, mountain biking, Jacobs Ladder and of course a disco or two along the way! Not only were the activities exciting for the children but they also required a huge amount of bravery and resilience. The week was broken up with excursions to Torquay zoo and The Eden Project giving the children a chance to have some hands on learning experiences. The steamy glasses in the Arizona zone will remain a memory forever! As the children got off the coach on Friday evening, the buzz had certainly continued. ‘That was the best week of my life’ and ‘I have never screamed and laughed so much in a week’ to summarise the truly memorable time that was had by all. As a member of the Abbots Green community we are proud to offer our pupils opportunities that enhance their curriculum and enable them to develop as individuals along the way. If you would like to find out more about Abbots Green Academy, please do not hesitate to contact the school on 01284 718818.

Sitting in the woods

N

ow that we’ve got the rain and cold out of the way, we can move on and look forward to summer! This is the best time of the year to get out and make the most of nature; flowers are in full bloom, trees should be greener than ever, and the amount of wildlife around is unbelievable! So, in order to take and enjoy this opportunity as much as possible, you’re going to need a few things, that us at Woodland Ways can provide. First on the list is benches in the woods. Seats in the outdoors are sometimes taken for granted, but they do a lot to help visitors to the wood, especially the elderly and less able. They provide the opportunity to just sit, relax, and enjoy the beauty of nature. They can also encourage people to get outside more, if they know there is somewhere they can rest for a while. Benches don’t have to ruin natural views either, in fact they do quite the opposite! They

blend in with the natural environment, therefore not disturbing anything attenders to the woods would want to see. Unfortunately, there are a few downsides to having benches. They are quite costly, and not everyone appreciates them being there. Vandalism is on the rise, and if the benches are subject to someone’s graffiti, they can destroy the natural look we’re going for. So what do you think? Should Woodland Ways invest in some benches in some of our beautiful woodland areas? Which of the woods needs a bench most? And should it be a standard park bench, a simple log such as the one already at Natterer’s Wood, or something more special? A carved log with embedded artwork might be lovely but who pays for the extra cost? Please do let us know. Enjoy the summer everyone! by Aimee Hartley

Dear reader,

Although the sun didn’t exactly shine for us in June, the Pavilion at Ravenwood Hall certainly shone with our wonderful fundraisers at our annual thank you event. Each year we host this evening event to thank some of the amazing people who have supported us over the year. All our fundraisers are incredible and we WiSH we could invite everyone, but there is just not a venue big enough! Usually held in February we decided we would take on the theme of an afternoon tea and host it in the summer. Still, thanks the generosity of Craig Jarvis at Ravenwood Hall a fantastic time was had by all as we enjoyed music from Joey and Ben, two talented students from County Upper School. The saxophonist and pianist played a medley of classics to welcome our guests. Ravenwood Hall put on a delicious cream tea, with a selection of finger sandwiches, scones with lashings of clotted cream and jam, brownies, cakes, mini lemon meringue pies and of course, not forgetting, tea and coffee. Once everyone was full to the brim our guests enjoyed a brief talk from Sue, Steve Dunn and Craig, before watching a video of their incredible achievements and some thank you’s from our staff. The video is on our Facebook page @MyWiSHCharity, so do take a look, who knows, if you have fundraised for us you may well feature in it! Over the past eighteen months people have held cake sales, run marathons,

my

charity Supporting West Suffolk Hospital Registered Charity No. 1049223

cycled up mountains and walked down hills. They have chosen My WiSH as their charity of the year. They have generously donated £500,000 to open the cardiac diagnostic unit. They’ve open their gardens, swum in open waters, line danced and held gaming marathons. They’ve joined in our events including the World War 1 Trail and the Soapbox Challenge. The list is endless and sometimes incredibly creative! Our fundraisers work tirelessly to enhance the care we give to our patients. They all volunteer their time, train endlessly and work incredibly hard to raise funds. Some do it to say thank you for the care given to a loved one who has sadly passed away, some to say thank you for the care given to friend or family member and some to celebrate the end of their journey and recovery. All share a mutual passion, West Suffolk Hospital. When our donors start supporting us they become part of our family and many have now become lifelong friends. It is a privilege to know them and we are so thrilled we had this opportunity to thank them in such a special way. All that is left to say is a massive, massive thank you to everyone who has supported us over the years, we are incredible grateful to you all! If you want to join our family and fundraise or volunteer for us and help your local hospital, get in touch with the team.

The 19th hole

Welcome back to the 19th hole, this month with the change in the world schedule we have another major championship…. THE OPEN CHAMPIONSHIP!!

June saw us crown a first time major winner in Gary Woodland at the US Open hosted at the amazing Pebble Beach Golf Links. This month The Open Championship is hosted for the first time at Royal Portrush GC in Northern Ireland. This golf course looks like it will be an incredible test of golf for the worlds best players, and if the weather plays it part in this championship then it will be a tough week for the players. My Major Pick: I think Rory will come good and win another Open Championship. What’s on this month - JULY PGA TOUR 3M Open John Deere Classic Barbasol Championship The Open Championship World Golf Championships-FedEx St. Jude Invitational EUROPEAN TOUR DUBAI DUTY FREE IRISH OPEN ABERDEEN STANDARD INVESTMENTS SCOTTISH OPEN 148th OPEN CHAMPIONSHIP WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational COACHES CORNER – HOLE MORE PUTTS As we all know putting is a big percentage of the strokes we take in a round of golf, so this month we are looking at how THREE simple drills can help you hole more holes on your next round of golf. Drill 1) Strike, strike is king in every shot we hit in golf. So this simple GATE drill makes you return the club to the ball as you addressed it and works to achieve better strikes.

Start with the gate wider and slowly bring it in so the tees are close to the toe and heel of the putter. Simply miss the tees and strike it pure! This drill is used daily by TIGER WOODS, so it’s safe to say its worth a try! Drill 2) Start line, after reading your putt its now key to start it down the correct line. Again using a GATE that’s now placed a few feet down your chosen line, your aim is to roll your putts through this gate and down your target line. To make this drill harder simply make the gate smaller and test your putting skill more. Drill 3) Speed Control, is a last key ingredient to holing putts. This simple drill allows you to dial in the speed of the surfaces you are playing on that day before you start your round. We have completed these over 10ft, 20ft and 30ft. However, this drill can be performed over any distances, you are simply trying to gain the speed to these three distances so that you have some swing length parameters to work within on the course. I hope these drills help, to watch the video for these drills please go to: https://youtu.be/ MnkQBTf7owE If you are still struggling with this or any other aspect of your game, then I would be pleased to assist you in enjoying this great game more.

Intolerance Testing

with Health Sense by Laura Mounteney Welcome to Health Sense Are the foods you are eating making you ill? Would you like help to change your diet, nutrition and lifestyle to get your health and life back on track?

We can provide non-invasive testing services which improve health by identifying and helping eliminate many of the basic underlying imbalances which can cause health problems.

Food Intolerance Testing Our simple, painless food intolerance test is able to pinpoint potentially harmful foods that could be causing your symptoms. I am able to offer you advice on a sensible elimination diet, as well as a vitamin and mineral check which is provided alongside basic nutritional counselling. Over 100 substances which include common foods and drinks are tested during our consultation, plus vitamins and minerals deficiency check. The equipment I use is an electronic machine, which works on a physics principle, that measures the body’s resistance to substances. If a substance is causing a problem then it will affect the body’s measured energy resistance. The test is completely painless and is best described as a ball point pen touching the tip of your finger upon an acupuncture point.

Health Sense Intolerance Testing Do you suffer from IBS, bloating, cramps, heartburn, diarrhoea, headaches, acne, joint ache, anxiety or are you struggling to lose weight? Our simple, painless food intolerance test is able to pinpoint potentially harmful foods that could be causing your symptoms.

Positively Crafty A hexagon card was achieved in the June session. Coloured shapes using glue with teardrops to finish off .Fiddly but fun and very effective. We even had time to finish off the last layer of coating on the bottles which

have been ongoing for a while as each layer administered takes time to dry. In July we will be working with vellum and making flowers. The sessions are light hearted with a lot of banter. There may not be many of us but we certainly enjoy ourselves and always go home with a sense of achievement even if we do work at different levels to each other. It is all about joining in, helping each other and having a laugh. Just being with people in a socially engaging atmosphere can make a huge difference to someone’s day. Crafting has helped some of our members in their day to day by giving them a change of focus, become totally absorbed in a task, use their hands, calm their minds, take their attention away from their pain. Sessions are held on the first Thursday of each month from 1pm to 4pm. Refreshments included.

Finding something that gives positive effects even if they are only little things like interacting can stabilise your mental health. When you are in pain, feeling comfortable in your own body can be challenging and pushing yourself to do simple things is a constant struggle. Be a friend to yourself, you owe it to yourself. Take the pressure off yourself and provide a more achievable outlook. Treasure the giving of letting the negativity and the hurt go. Afford yourself the same courtesy you would give a friend. Do for yourself what you would want a friend to do for their own self-care which includes rest, recuperation and healing. Action plans and problem solving are part of selfmanagement so if you are an over achiever give them some thought, more importantly if you are finding your day to day incredibly hard they may be useful tools. If you are in the vicinity drop in and see what we are all about, you will receive a warm welcome. The next CPSG meeting is at 2pm on Thursday 18th July and the speaker will be presenting on a volunteer led charity dedicated to the teaching and practice of first aid. Both meetings take place in the small hall of Southgate Community Centre in Bury.. For more details call us on 07724 187774 E. info@chronicpainsupportgroup.co.uk www.chronicpainsupportgroup.co.uk

pain - this creates more “slack” in the muscle thus decreasing the pressure on the affected tendon. l Non-steriodal anti-inflammatories – help decrease the feeling of pain. l Extracorporeal Shock-wave therapy – this can help chronic suffers by stimulating blood flow to the area amongst other things. l Massage to release the tension in the forearm muscles. Long term cure: l Adjustment of technique - ask your coach for advice on the equipment you are using, tips of how to hold the tool or racquet better to reduce the amount of force you take through the forearm. Perhaps you may need newer strings or a better hold of the club? Adjusting the how you hold a tool may help ease discomfort significantly. l See a manual therapist such as a sports therapist or osteopath. Exercises that strengthen the forearms and stretches that lengthen it will help build up the muscle again, so it won’t protest under those aggravating movements. l If manual therapy doesn’t work then your GP may be able to refer you for a steroidal injection or x-ray if symptoms do not subside after conservative treatment. Exercises The idea behind exercises is to decrease the demand on the muscles and allow them to build up resilience again from easy to more dynamic movements. This allows the tissue to heal in response to the appropriate amount of stress whilst teaching you and the muscles involved how to move better again.

How long does it take? On average you should feel symptoms ease within the first few weeks of starting manual therapy. To get to full strength and reduce the re-occurrence of symptoms significantly can take around 12-18months. This is dependent on how much you can modify your activity, compliance to carry out athome exercises and ability to heal/adapt. It important to note, the recovery does take time but bear in mind that a repetitive use injury has normally built up to the symptom of pain for some time - so it will take time to un-do months or years of incorrect technique and re-learn new ways to perform tasks. This is normal for healing in any injury. Even for those that end up having surgery, the exercises act as pre-habilitation and put you in better stance for a full and successful recovery post operation. This article is not to be used as a diagnosis criteria. If you think you are suffering from the above then seek the advice of a medical professional in person for an accurate diagnosis. Here at Bury St. Edmunds Osteopaths we offer Sports Therapy and Acupuncture as well as Osteopathy all under one roof! If you are unsure of who you need to see then give us a call to find out more and we will be able to advise on what would suit you best.

Dark Circles Under Your Eyes? Here are 5 Tips to help improve them... 1. Cover Delicately! Heavy concealers and foundations will overwhelm delicate eye skin, and while they might lighten the appearance of dark circles, they’ll also emphasise whatever texture is there, whether that’s fine lines, deeper wrinkles, or dry skin.

2. Check Your Stress Levels. Lack of sleep causing dark circles isn’t just an old wives’ tale. It’s scientifically proven! So make sure you’re getting enough sleep for your body to feel relaxed and rested.

3. Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate. The skin under your eyes is some of the thinnest on your body—and when you don’t drink enough water, it becomes even thinner. Make sure you drink ten to twelve glasses of water minimum per day and even more if you drink coffee or alcohol!

4. Make Sure It’s Nothing ‘Medical’! Sudden dark circles or those present for a while that aren’t usual for you, may be a sign of something going on inside your body. So, if you’re worried, pop yourself over to your GP!

5. Try Imperial Eye Gel! It’s perfect for helping lighten dark circles, reduce puffiness and let the beauty of your eyes shine through! 32 | JULY 2019

MEETINGS HELD ON 1 MAY & 5 JUNE 2019 FULL PAGE FLIGHT LAB

After the business of our AGM in May, our guest speakers Sue and Sally joined us in singing Jerusalem. Sue Smith is the Head of Fundraising and Sally Daniels is the Appeals Manager the WiSH Charity which provides fundraising for West Suffolk Hospital and Newmarket Hospital and the community services they provide, also the MacMillan Unit. In their first year the two ladies raised £1.2 million and were instrumental in setting up the ‘Memory Corridor’ at the West Suffolk Hospital particularly for dementia patients. There are now two further part time staff. Sue explained how donations are spent and gave us a slide presentation of the many various items that have been purchased which are over and above the essential equipment provided by the NHS. This year it is hoped to raise £2 – 4,000 in order to create a ‘Butterfly Garden’ for end of life patients to spend time with their families and pets. The Charity achieved ‘Outstanding’ by the Care Quality Commission. http://mywishcharity. wsh.nhs.uk/Charity/Home.aspx The Bury St Edmunds Rickshaw came to visit us in June and although it was pouring with rain outside, many of our ladies took a ride around the hall. Libby Ranzetta and Sam Reid share the administration as well as riding the rickshaw. They explained that our President Ann Williamson was also instrumental in obtaining the necessary funding from various Locality Budgets and the rickshaw launched in June 2018. There are 32 volunteers who cycle and other volunteers they call ‘Chatty Chums’ who are happy to accompany someone who may not have anyone to go with them. DBS checks are carried out on all volunteers and it is very safe and easy to access for disabled users. Between June and October last year it travelled 1,400 miles around the town and has already covered 500 miles so far this year. http://www.bserickshaw.org.uk ANNETTE BROWN, SECRETARY @ MORETON HALL WI, BURY ST EDMUNDS EMAIL: NETTY248BROWN@BTINTERNET.COM

INFUSIONS GROUP CREATE NEW TEEN AT BURY ST EDMUNDS’ WOMEN’S REFUGE

ROOM

On Friday 7th June, Jo Churchill MP will unveil the brand-new teenage room at Bury St Edmunds’ Women’s Aid Outreach Centre. The room is designed specifically to offer a safe and welcoming space for teenagers affected by domestic violence and was funded, decorated and furnished by local company Infusions Group, the company behind the ICE Café on the Rougham Industrial Estate. Bury St. Edmunds Women’s Aid was set up in 1974 to provide safety and support to women and children experiencing domestic abuse. The main refuge in Bury St Edmunds has 23 bed spaces offering temporary accommodation in a safe environment for women and their children recovering from the traumatic effects of domestic violence, but Bury St Edmunds Women’s Aid also offers a range of community services and counselling to support families rebuilding their lives after abuse and these are based at their outreach centre in the town centre, where this new teenage room has been created. The staff at Infusions Group chose Bury St Edmunds Women’s Aid as their charity of the year for 2018, and they raised over £2400 during the course of the year, by donating tips from their ICE Lunch Bar, through raffles and staff charity quizzes and through a half marathon run by one of the company’s owners. During the course of the year, the company also donated Easter eggs, cooked Christmas lunch for staff and the ladies and children staying at the Refuge at that time, donated and hosted a team building day and arranged a Halloween party for children affected by domestic violence. On Friday, they will also hand over a cheque for the balance of the fundraising which will be used to buy more equipment for the room. In December of 2018, the four directors of Infusions Group visited the Outreach Centre, decorated the room and built flatpack furniture, 38 | JULY 2019

T

kitting out the room for young people to use. The new room includes an area for make-up and nails, a craft area, bean bags and Wi-Fi as well as a chalk wall. It is designed to be as accommodating as possible for teenagers in a supportive, safe and caring environment, away from younger siblings. Heather Hunt, CEO of Bury St Edmunds Women’s Aid said: “We’re so grateful for this donation. It’s made such a difference so far and will only prove to be even more beneficial as time goes on for this particularly vulnerable group, giving them a bit of space and freedom whilst at the same time keeping them safe.” John Jackaman, Managing Director of Infusions Group, says: “We loved working with the team at Bury St Edmunds Women’s Aid and were pleased to do our part. We approached Heather at the start of the year and asked for a specific project to fundraise for and creating this room in particular really captured our team’s imagination and they were all happy to contribute throughout the year and the support from our customers has also been amazing. To be able to provide a safe space for vulnerable teens when they need it most is a fantastic cause”.

TRAVELLING TO EUROPE Currently, British citizens can travel visa free with no limit on the amount of time spent in an EU country. This position will continue until the United Kingdom (UK) leaves the European Union (EU). Should we be faced with a no deal Brexit, then British citizens will need to comply with all of the laws of each EU country in respect of its entry and residence regulations. It is likely that in the event of a no deal, British citizens travelling to an EU country will need an existing passport which has been issued within the last 10 years and the passport itself must be valid for a minimum of 6 months beyond the date of arrival into the EU. Furthermore, the passport must be valid for at least 3 months from the date of departure from the EU.

to visa free travel for up to 3 months in any 6 month period from the date of the UK’s departure from the EU. Eventually however, all British citizens will have to apply for and register under an EU scheme which is set to be introduced in 2021 and at that time, British citizens will be required to apply for a visa waiver and if the application is successful, then British citizens will receive a waiver valid for a period of 3 years. This will allow them to travel to the EU on multiple occasions. Any discussion regarding Brexit must be predicated with the disclaimer of “watch this space”. It remains to be seen whether the UK does eventually leave the EU on 31 October 2019.

Under the terms of the Prime Minister’s current Brexit deal, British citizens will continue to benefit from unlimited travel to the EU without requiring a visa until the end of the current proposed transitional period of 31 December 2020. In the case of no deal, the EU has agreed in principal

Rejuvenate your body & mind yoga tai chi qi gong

Healing the Natural Way Natural healing has been practiced around the world for thousands of years. Over time many disciplines have developed linked by the common belief that everything is energy. When our energy flows freely we enjoy good health both physically and mentally. It is the force we call gut instinct or intuition and guides us in making decisions or interacting with people we meet. In China it is called Chi, Japan Qi and in India Prana. Whatever you call it, it is the truth that connects us to every other thing and the reason we should treat everything with kindness and respect. If a blockage develops in our energetic system through stress or trauma, the natural flow is inhibited and symptoms appear as illness or disease. Once the flow is restored the symptoms should be alleviated and good health restored. Preventative medicine is the best medicine; it surprises

“Everything is energy and that’s all there is to it. Match the frequency of the reality you want and you cannot help but get that reality. It can be no other way.” Albert Einstein many that yoga, tai chi and qi gong engage our body energetically as well as physically with movements designed to clear energetic blocks as well as strengthen muscles. By treating our bodies with respect we also care for our mental and emotional wellbeing. Eating well and moving keeps us healthy in more than just a physical sense as our energetic body also benefits. Meditation and breathing exercises can also be used to keep our energy flowing freely, introspection and taking time to listen to what our body tells us can help identify suppressed emotions, tightness in the body, subtle changes and the little voice we try to ignore. Early detection and action can prevent worsening symptoms later on.

Sometimes, we need a little extra help to put things right and get things flowing. We know energy can’t be destroyed only transformed or released, so healers work with their clients to release blocked energy back into the universe or transform it into something beneficial for each individual. Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) works with The 5 Elements, in India Ayurvedic healers work with the aura and chakra system.

be called home to make you whole again. Reiki has its origins in Japan, practitioners call on universal energy to flow through themselves to aid their clients healing – Rei means universal life and Ki means energy. Simply, universal life energy. A practitioner can work with hands on or off the body to seek out and heal energy blocks. Sound Healing, such as Gong Baths, can cause tears and laughter in equal measure. It is a deeply

relaxing and moving experience that harnesses the sound and vibrations of traditional instruments such as the gong, singing bowls and drum to create a meditative state in which the body is safe to release stress and bring both body and mind back into balance. Regression therapies release energy through journeying back to times of trauma, in this life or the past so that balance is restored in the here and now and can be combined

with other forms of healing and counselling. . Crystal healing uses the natural vibrations and properties of crystals to aid in healing blockages. For information on energy healing classes, therapies and workshops please browse our lovely new website or better yet give us a call and pop in. Yoga, Tai Chi and Qi Gong classes run weekly, gong baths fortnightly and our therapy team take bookings by appointment.

NEW WEBSITE We would like to thank our customers and students for their patience over the last couple of months whilst we have been constructing a whole new website. In many ways it has brought us all closer together. Although the internet is a marvellous tool sometimes it’s good to pick up the phone and talk.

There is lots of information to browse, online booking is quick and easy, and our therapy team look very dapper in their new pages.

Rougham Control Tower Aviation Museum

Memorial

Locally and Internationally we have been witnessing many great tributes and events to remember the life changing relationships involved here in the UK 75 years ago. The commemoration of D-Day in 1944 has highlighted our relationship with our friends and allies both in Europe and in America (and in other countries of the world). The hostilities of the second world war were not felt just overseas but also here locally in Bury St Edmunds. I hope that I can speak for all our members, volunteers and the local community with links to that period, WE WILL NEVER FORGET. We are extremely proud at the Museum to be a group who respect and remember how RAF Bury St Edmunds (Rougham) played a major part in the conflict. This is the reason we volunteer, WE WILL REMEMBER THEM. Our Memorial and all the artifacts reflect the commitment and sacrifice given by so many, for our freedom. As with many museums in the region, we give our time and energy freely to provide a continuing memorial. Continuing to be updated, continuing to be 50 | JULY 2019

added to and continuing to be available to all. It is a great pleasure to meet and greet everyone who comes through our door. From the youngest ‘school learner’, family member, relative or veteran, we welcome you. Please come and join us at your memorial. The anniversary commemorations are happening with some frequency, both nationally and internationally. Our responsibility is acknowledged on specific dates – Sunday August 4th our ‘Echo’s of the Past’ and Sunday December 8th our ‘Departures Service’.


HOME + LIFESTYLE

Both of these events are significant for the Museum. ‘Echo’s’ allows us, with the reenactments, to bring history to life, both for memories and for financial input to our funds. The Departures Service commemorates the leaving of the American forces from the base in 1945. Your support on both these days will be very welcome, please join us. As in previous months we appeal for assistance, volunteers, visitors, ‘Dinky Toys’ and all things aviation. If you have time, memorability or any items for display or donation, please contact us. I close this month with the famous poem: They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old: Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.

Sybil Andrews Academy

New leadership team at Sybil Andrews Academy outline improvement plan Sybil Andrews Academy has vowed to make “rapid improvements” following a recent Ofsted inspection.

across the whole school and with a secure understanding of the strengths and weaknesses.

The Bury St Edmunds secondary school was rated as ‘Requires Improvement’ with the new leadership team speaking of their determination to drive progress.

Inspectors also highlighted the fact that pupils are well prepared for their next steps after school, with effective advice and guidance, while pupils have positive attitudes to learning.

Trenica King, headteacher at Sybil Andrews Academy, said: “The thing that shines through the report to me is the spirit of the school. “We are a school where new leaders recognise the challenges that the school faces and have begun to implement plans to make provision better.” Nick Froy, the school’s executive headteacher, added: “We recognise the need to ‘reboot’ the school and refocus all of our efforts around our core values and vision. “We are very ambitious for this school and we have every confidence that it will improve rapidly. For us, this is a timely health check as we transition from new school to established school.” Ofsted inspectors praised the new leadership, noting it had been enhanced 52 | JULY 2019

Tim Coulson, chief executive of Unity Schools Partnership and chair of governors at Sybil Andrews Academy, added: “This is a school with fabulous children. It has a tremendous future and we are proud to be responsible for the school. We take Ofsted’s feedback seriously, both the positive and the critical. “We are determined to work with parents on the areas needing improvement. We hold parent forums in many schools, but this is the school where we see particularly strong engagement and support from parents.” If any parent would like to contact the chair of the governing body, they can do so by emailing tcoulson@unitysp.co.uk.

Local Quiz Night Raises Over

£2,600

Regarded as one of the region’s biggest quiz events, a local family run hearing care company held their bi-annual quiz night which managed to raise an incredible amount for a UK deafness charity. The Hearing Care Centre hosted their seventeenth quiz fundraiser in Kesgrave on Sunday 9th June 2019. Presented by BBC radio presenter Stephanie Mackentyre, the evening was supported by 200 guests who enjoyed 9 rounds of tough trivia, with five teams taking home cash prizes. Tickets for the quiz sold out in less than a week, which further demonstrated the event’s popularity. Thanks to generous support from local businesses, ticket sales and a bumper raffle, £1,624.37 was raised on the night. This was then boosted with an extra £1,000 as a fundmatch from the team at Barclays in Ipswich, taking the total to £2,624.37. This event was all in aid of Hearing Dogs For Deaf People, a charity close to the hearts of The Hearing Care Centre. Karen Finch, Managing Director and founder of The Hearing Care Centre, expressed: “Hearing Dogs give many deaf people confidence, independence and companionship. I want to give a huge thank you to everyone who helped us support this great charity”. The Hearing Care Centre’s next initiative is their Summer Pudding Club, an all you can eat dessert lovers paradise, which is currently in the process of being organised.

JULY’S 5 TIPS TO HELP YOU REDUCE PLASTIC WASTE

I

t’s been quite a while since we had a look at ways to help you reduce your contribution to the plastic waste problem. We are thinking slightly outside the box this month so we hope you like these new ideas!

1 Make a shopping list and stick to it We have mentioned it before, but every family wastes £840 worth of food per year and along with that, any plastic packaging around the food. Work hard to buy only what you need.

3

2 A new zero waste shop in Bury St Edmunds

called ‘Clear to Sea’ in St John’s Street, take your own containers and avoid all that horrible packaging you find in other stores. Prices are pretty good too!

4

Please go to our website ecofrenzy.com and join the Ecofrenzy club. Together we can all make a big difference.

5

Change all your light bulbs to LED’s

Take-away coffee cups are non-recyclable,

Don’t buy plastic wrapped flowers

All bulbs are part plastic and importantly LEDS can last 5 to 10 times longer that other bulbs. In time you use less bulbs and by definition less plastic. By the way you also save loads of money.

contain plastic and billions end up in landfill / incinerators every year. If you take your own, you stop some of the waste and save money on every drink with discount or double loyalty stamps.

It’s so nice to give flowers as a thank you present or a celebratory gift, but if you buy them from a shop they are usually wrapped in plastic. Try growing your own or finding a source without plastic.

Community unearth medieval finds at Abbey dig A community archaeological dig in part of the former Abbey of St Edmund has unearthed a medieval ring and pottery. The dig which took place over two days, saw 32 members of the public aid an archaeological excavation of the former Eastgate Nurseries across the River Lark from the Abbey Gardens in Bury St Edmunds. The site will accommodate new tennis courts, picnic area, the town’s fire beacon and link paths providing easier routes between Ram Meadow and No Mans Meadow. It is the first community archaeology to take place at the site since the formation of the Abbey of St Edmund Heritage Partnership in 2016, a partnership that is led by St Edmundsbury Cathedral and West Suffolk Council in collaboration with nearly 20 other local and regional public, private and voluntary organisations. Archaeological investigations showed that the river terrace was extensively quarried, from around the 12th century for the sand and gravels that were probably used in the construction of the stone buildings in the Abbey. The dig also found animal bones and traces of clay lined pits as evidence of a tannery that was on the site close to the Abbots Bridge. The Rev Canon Matthew Vernon, Chair of the Heritage Partnership said: “The Abbey of St Edmund Heritage Partnership is keen, whenever it can, to invite local residents and visitors to get 60 | JULY 2019

involved in this work to help develop a better understanding of the significance of the Abbey of St Edmund area. “We are already looking at how best to engage the local and wider community in some of the archaeological investigations that could take place within the area over the next few years. “On this occasion, there was an opportunity for a limited number of people to take part in a supervised community archaeological dig. This was on the site of what will become the new tennis courts and a new picnic area at the former Eastgate Nurseries adjoining the Abbey Gardens. We look forward to sharing the findings of these archaeological investigations more fully in due course.” Cllr Joanna Rayner, West Suffolk Council, Cabinet Member for Leisure and Culture said: “What is great, is the sense of renewed interest not just in St Edmund but also the Abbey of St Edmund, of which the Abbey Gardens is just a part. The archaeological investigations could add more to our understanding of this wonderful heritage area which has great national and international significance. We look forward to engaging people in its story in new and exciting ways when, as a community, we share celebrating 1000 years of the Abbey in 2020.” The Heritage Partnership, relies on the time and effort of volunteers, and we are looking for more people to offer their skills and expertise.

Flower Garden O Now’s the time to prune spring flowering shrubs, such as Philadelphus, Weigela and Lupins O Prune Magnolia now if you need to. O Divide clumps of bearded irises now. O Cut back penstemons to just above a bud to encourage more flowers O It is best to cut flowers from the garden early morning with a sharp secateurs. They will keep longer if you cut at an angle and immerse straight into a bucket of water or vase. O Trim holly, yew and conifer hedges. O Feed dahlias once a week with a liquid tomato feed. You will need to stake taller varieties and pinch out the growing tips of smaller types to encourage bushy growth O Divide up clumps of overcrowded bearded iris to reinvigorate them.

Lawn Maintenance O Regularly cut the lawn but don’t scalp it instead keep the height of the mower fairly high

Vegetable and Fruit Garden O Now is the time to Prune your Plum and Cherry Trees O Harvest your garlic and onions as soon as the leaves start to yellow and die back. O Pepper plants will benefit from being potted on to larger pots O Mulch rhubarb once the harvesting of the stalks is over O Give your gooseberries and currant bushes a prune after harvesting their fruit. O Pick courgettes and runner beans when they are young O Thin out the fruits on your fruit trees to produce good sized crops. This also helps to prevent brown rot. O Tackle blackfly on broad beans by pinching off any affected growing tips O You can harvest garlic once the foliage dies down. O Pinch out the tips of runner beans when they reach the top of the canes. O Thin out beetroot seedlings to around 5cm apart to ensure your beetroots grow to a decent size.

O If you are growing outdoor tomatoes then it is a good idea to cut back the main growing stem when you have around 4-5 trusses.

General Maintenance O Keep the hoe going ,in dry weather the weeds will die O Keep bird baths topped up O Look out for aphids and rub them off by hand O Use left over water in a freshly boiled kettle to trickle over any weeds in your block paving this should kill them in a few days O Remove Tree suckers from the base of trees

Change Ahead for Companies House Companies House is the United Kingdom’s Register of limited companies. Created in 1844 it now faces massive change as the government steps up its fight against economic crime. As Chris Ridgeon writes, the government is consulting on proposals to significantly change the role of Companies House and has launched a consultation process around steps to increase the transparency of UK corporate entities. The potential reforms outlined in the consultation document amount to the biggest changes to the UK system for setting up and operating companies since the Register was created in 175 years ago. Kelly Tolhurst, Minister for Small Business, Consumers and Corporate Responsibility, says in her introduction to the paper that the UK is recognised as a global leader on corporate transparency. That’s just one of the reasons why it is an attractive location to set up and operate a business. She adds that regrettably the same factors that make this system successful make it attractive to exploitation. Recent years have seen concerns grow about the misuse of UK corporate entities, the filing of false information at Companies House, and the use of innocent people’s information on the companies register to commit fraud and other acts of harm. The consultation is open until August 5 this year and is targeting three principle areas: • Information that companies are required to disclose • Increasing the checks on the information disclosed • Improving the exchange of intelligence between Companies House and UK Law Enforcement bodies The government wants the views of those affected by the reform, set out in five parts: 1.

SCHOOL TRIP M

onths of anticipation. Weeks of planning. Days of packing. The excitement is at fever pitch… and that’s just the parents! Yes, the long awaited school residential trip is upon us at last. Back in the day, the only school outing we got at primary school was a daytrip to Easton Farm Park or Framlingham Castle. Which to be fair, were both wildly exciting. However, nowadays it seems expectations are higher and the last few weeks of primary school must consist of at least one residential adventure. There’s a couple of things about this that stand out to me. Firstly, the teachers. Wow, I mean, just wow! Taking 60 over excited 11 year olds away is a noble and selfless undertaking worthy of some sort of medal. I used to coach half a dozen of them at football training once 68 | JULY 2019

a week, and I needed some ibuprofen and lie down after just an hour. Secondly, the children. How exciting must this be for them? For many the first time away from home, with friends, and nonstop outdoor activities. It’s almost like a dream. If there were any nerves, my son didn’t show them. I think the eagerness to try raft building, kayaking, abseiling etc.. far outweighed any trepidation of being away from home. Packing started in earnest a couple of weeks ago. At least the lists did. Ensuring favourite clothes were washed and ready, sourcing every item of the essential kit list provided. The end result was a suitcase the size of the child. Still, we were confident it contained all required, plus plenty of spares.

On the morning of departure, my son confidently dragged his 40kg, child sized suitcase to school. His little sisters insisted on big hugs and even snuck in a couple of kisses, which to his credit he tolerated, then he was off. A pat on the back and a final reminder to ‘be good’, was all he got (or wanted) from me. As I left the school gates, I noted a tearful parent. Initially I wondered what on earth was wrong. Had they just received some bad news? Perhaps they had stubbed their toe on the kerb? Then suddenly I understood. This is the emotional goodbye. I was pretty emotional too as it happened. As I walked home with enthusiastic children’s laughter in the air, I couldn’t help but chuckle myself, with a grin like a Cheshire cat. Yeah, I’ll miss the lad for sure, but I think I’ll cope.

URGENT APPEAL FOR VOLUNTEERS

TO HELP ISOLATED OLDER PEOPLE

A charity is urgently appealing for volunteers to help lonely older people in the Bury St Edmunds area.

Contact the Elderly, a UK charity dedicated to tackling loneliness and social isolation among older people, provides Sunday afternoon gatherings for people aged 75 and older. The charity has been providing its services in Bury St Edmunds for just over six months and already has a very popular group the area, welcoming 6 guests every month. Through the group strong bonds have been formed and friendships made – and 95% of the older guests that the charity helps say they now have something to look forward to. John Adams, 94, a regular guest at the tea party said “It’s so lovely to come to these parties because you get homemade cakes. Sunday’s are so lonely but now I have a tea party to look forward to.” The charity is committed to helping lonely older people in the area and due to the success of the first group, now has older people on the waiting list in the area. The charity currently has space for a few more guests to join the new group and is keen to raise awareness of these openings among the local community. It is also appealing for volunteers who can spare just a few hours each month to help with the running of local tea parties – and enjoy a cuppa themselves. Each guest is collected from their home by a volunteer driver and taken to a volunteer host’s home, where they meet with a small group for tea, chat and friendship. The group is welcomed by a different host each month but the drivers remain the same which means that over the months and years, acquaintances turn into friends and loneliness is replaced by companionship. Contact the Elderly’s Development Officer, Alex Berwick said: “Sundays can be particularly lonely 80 | JULY 2019

for older people who live alone and our tea parties give them a chance to get together with others, make new friends, eat delicious cakes and enjoy a cup of tea. Our monthly events make a real difference to the lives of those in the group and we would encourage anyone interested in coming along, or those who know of people it might appeal to, to get in touch.”

Alex Berwick added: “We also have a real shortage of local volunteers in the area – it’s not a big commitment, and our volunteers genuinely get as much out of the experience as our older guests, so I’m calling for anyone who is interested in giving something back to their community to get in touch.” Contact the Elderly has been dedicated to tackling loneliness and social isolation among older people for more than 50 years and is supported by 11,000 volunteers. Last year it helped 6,223 older guests in 813 groups across the UK. If you’re interested in volunteering for Contact the Elderly, or you know someone aged 75 and over who you think could benefit from attending one of the groups, get in touch by calling National Office freephone number 0800 716543 or emailing alexandra.berwick@contact-theelderly.org.uk

Christ Church MORETON HALL We live in an age when people think they can find fulfilment by just looking inwardly. The truth is we only truly discover ourselves when we come into a right relationship with nature and with those around us. It is God’s world and if we look after it and if we care for everyone and everything in it, it is by that path we discover who we really are and find the peace and fulfilment all we need. It is my prayer for us all that in these times of worry and concern we keep looking outward, caring, supporting and loving one another and saying our prayers to God, and then we will find His peace and contentment here are three stories that illustrate my point

Food Banks As we approach the school holidays many of us are thinking about the joy of having our children with us. The holidays; where we go as family or with friends, to enjoy ourselves and relax, or perhaps, we are looking forward to enjoying a summer of sport and the Garden. Sadly for many homes across Bury St. Edmunds the children being at home for six weeks is something which, while it is not dreaded, does fill many families with real concern. Money begins to run out before the end of August and so do food supplies. There is as much call on food banks in the summer holidays as there is at Christmas time. So Christ Church Moreton Hall will be running another food bank appeal through June and July to enable the local food banks to be fully stocked for the summer holidays. I hope you will be able to support us.

Tragic Incident A few days ago on church grounds we found a female duck that had been killed. On closer inspection the poor animal had two holes in its body, not caused by a gun, or an animal, or a knife. It may have been caused by somebody firing a crossbow bolt. While we are not sure exactly what happened we have informed the police. If somebody is killing our wildlife with such a weapon they should be know the church grounds are covered by Council CCTV. They may have been recorded. It is a criminal offence to kill wildlife and if they miss, next time, they may hit something or someone else. I hope we are wrong but be assured we will keep a vigilant eye over all the estates ducks we all enjoy so much.

Christian Aid. Thank you so much for your generosity during the recent Christian Aid campaign. Over ÂŁ1700 was raised locally and will be going to support projects in Sierra Leone. Also thank you for sending in the cards to our local MP and the Cabinet Ministers. I have received many letters back in connection with this. So this summer I prayer for you all that you may find all the peace and all the joy and all the love you need. For I have found all three in knowing loving and following Jesus Christ.

With every good wish Yours sincerely,

Revd. Canon Jonathan Ford. Minister Christ Church Moreton Hall

Director Ari Aster

Cast Florence Pugh, Jack Reynor, William Jackson Harper, and Will Poulter Dani and Christian are a young American couple with a relationship on the brink of falling apart. But after a family tragedy keeps them together, a grieving Dani invites herself to join Christian and his friends on a trip to a once-in-a-lifetime midsummer festival in a remote Swedish village. What begins as a carefree summer holiday in a land of eternal sunlight takes a sinister turn when the insular villagers invite their guests to partake in festivities that render the pastoral paradise increasingly unnerving and viscerally disturbing. From the visionary mind of Ari Aster comes a dread-soaked cinematic fairytale where a world of darkness unfolds in broad daylight.es.
