EDITOR’S LETTER

WELCOME TO THE

SEPTEMBER ISSUE Hello and welcome to our September issue.

Summer, it was nice knowing you! I can’t believe how quick the holidays went, back to school panic buy is almost done, and now we can relax and get back into some kind of routine... With the nights starting to draw in, it can begin to get a bit chilly so we thought we would take a look at a few of our favourite coats for this season, see pages 80-81. Now the BBQ is packed away (almost), and the slow cooker is back out on display, our recipe on page 38 will give you a start to autumn dinner ideas, and there’s a nice dessert on page 40 too! Hopefully the sun will stay out for most of September though, and the heating can stay off for another month, we shall see! So until October, enjoy the last of our Great British summer!

SUNDAY

Normally a quiet non-eventful day on Moreton Hall, but on Sunday 11th August, we had a three mile run, dog show, pets church parade and the first football session of the season, oh yes, I almost forgot we had a litter pick too. The Community Centre hosted a dog show on behalf of My Wish, Moreton Hall Vets were on hand to advise and check dogs, plenty of rosettes were awarded with some dogs sporting three or more. Well done all. The Youth club supported the first season football competition, there was a great turn out, lovely to see the families enjoying a bright but blustery day, tea, coffee, soft drinks, hot dogs, crisps and a tombola were all part of the fare. I must say a special well done to all the organisers, refs and coaches, these guys give up their time week in, week out, rain, hail and everything else the weather throws at them to keep our youngsters fit and enjoying themselves. Not forgetting the backroom staff preparing and making the teas, coffees, food and other mouth-watering nibbles. Thank you! 10 | SEPTEMBER 2019


PLAY AREA YOUTH CLUB

Today I watched the Heldhaw Road play area being mowed and tidied up. It’s looking much better and hopefully we shall get some good weather so that it can be used.

Although it’s closed, the club is in use and we have had two parties in it. I have offered to open the club during the holidays for mums and dads to bring their kids down to play in the club but no takers, and the offer still stands.

BURGLARIES There has been a lot of chatter on Facebook over the last two weeks regarding burglaries on our estate. This is quite worrying, one house on Raedwald Drive was emptied while the home owners were away on holiday and I read that it happened on the top end of the estate also. I understand that a house holder chased off an attempted burglar only a few nights ago. I have not heard anything from our locality officer PC Paul Fox or from the police in general, I will try and find out what’s going on. Something we can all do to prevent some of these break in’s, is to not put on facebook that you are going on holiday, I know we are all pleased to get away but why let the thief’s know?

That’s all for now, take care. Frank Warby SEPTEMBER 2019 | 11

Home Town

After we had our traveller camp last month, I went over to see if there was any waste left behind at the community centre (luckily it was minimal, but that’s a different story). I noticed a pink tent in the woods at the back of the field and I was wondering if someone had been living there and had been scared off by the caravans. Well, this month, I have had reports of some homeless people living nearby, closer to town. We have engaged with them and I’m told by officers that they have had an offer of accommodation. Thanks to those kind citizens who were involved.

BIG BIN

It took a while, but we have a much better bin now at the Heldhaw Rd play park. Whilst it’s greatly improved the litter in that area, there is still waste dropped around the field, so please can we encourage our friends to make the small effort needed to bin it.

Sale Trail There has been much discussion online surrounding sale trails which have been going on in nearby towns and villages. Basically, this involves a map or route with the homes of participants marked with a dot and they then set up a stall in front of their house like you would see at a car boot. We had several volunteers to organise and run one for us here in Moreton Hall, which seems to have settled on Amanda Wigzell’s project. Much thanks Amanda! Sunday 15th September is the date. Contact Amanda via email: diddypot@ hotmail.com for more info or to be a stall holder. 07810 868986 | peter.thompson@westsuffolk.gov.uk 14 | SEPTEMBER 2019

Local audiologist to showcase gold standard hearing care this September One local audiologist is offering her team’s expertise to the public for free at an event to encourage better hearing for people in and around Bury St Edmunds. Karen Finch, Managing Director of local, family-run hearing care company The Hearing Care Centre, is passionate about raising awareness of good hearing health and wants to showcase the excellent hearing care service that her team can provide. The Hearing Care Centre runs a regular hearing clinic from Mount Farm GP Surgery on the Moreton Hall Estate. To encourage locals to check their hearing health, The Hearing Care Centre team have organised a free to attend ‘Hearing Care Day’ at this clinic on Wednesday 18th September 2019. Attendees with pre-booked appointments will be able to benefit from a full hearing assessment conducted by the company’s expert audiologists to provide personalised recommendations on solutions that could lead them on the path to better hearing. 16 | SEPTEMBER 2019

The company has been recognised many times over for the exceptional customer service that it provides for its customers, including being made a finalist for the Customer Care Award at the most recent EADT Business Awards. The judges remarked that the company offers “ethical, gold standard hearing care” and “puts patients’ needs first”. Karen Finch said: “It can take between 5 and 10 years for someone to accept they may have a hearing loss and at that point they are not always sure which way to turn. “Some people don’t realise what superb help is available on their doorstep. I encourage anyone in this position to come and see what we are all about. You have nothing to lose as the appointments are complimentary. It could be one of the best decisions you ever make.” To book your appointment and to find out more information, call Freephone 0800 096 2637 or visit www.hearingcarecentre.co.uk/ mountfarm.

The Butterfly Bar

S

ome of us are bar-goers, with the Moreton Hall Community Centre bar or the Moreton Hall pub being popular places to drink the amber nectar, as our Aussie friends call it. For our butterflies, the amber nectar is not just a recreational accessory, but a matter of life or death. Nectar from flowers keeps them alive until they successfully breed, keeping their genes cascading into future generations. Buddleia advertise themselves with their large spikes containing many small flowers each, all smelling attractive and dripping with nectar, so its no wonder that they attract butterflies from large distances. Over the last couple of months, those of use with a buddleia in our garden may have seen many Painted Ladies sipping the stuff of life from the buddleia, as well as the gaudy Peacock butterflies, the Red Admirals, and Tortoiseshells. Add

Small White and Large White to your butterfly bar customers, and that’s six species you would have seen if you looked carefully. Now that summer is fading, its time to plan for next year’s butterfly show. There are so many varieties to choose from, such as buddleia ‘Miss Ruby’ which is compact for a small garden and has outstanding magenta flowers. Or there’s buddleia ‘Butterfly Towers’ which is tall and thin, fitting into a smaller space than traditional buddleias. It does help nectar production if your buddleia is in sunshine for at least part of the day. Combine one of these plants with a desire to watch the flowers, and next summer’s butterfly watching is assured. Woodland Ways next work party is at Natterers Wood on Sunday 8th September at 10am.

Dear reader,

Hopefully you will all know by now that My WiSH Charity enhances the care patients at the West Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust receive. This comprises of: West Suffolk Hospital, Newmarket Community Hospital and community services in Suffolk. We also run appeals and one that is still ongoing is our Forget-Me-Not appeal. People with dementia can find new surroundings daunting, so back in 2014 we launched our Forget-MeNot Dementia appeal as an initiative to support them and make their stay in hospital more comfortable.

Registered Charity No. 1049223

We created a 100-metre long memory walk, featuring local and national images to help patients reminisce and start a conversation. We also transformed wards, purchased reminiscence machines, calm carts and pay for interactive sessions to improve their wellbeing. Every three minutes, one person in the UK develops dementia. We need your help to continue enhancing the care patients receive. If you want to donate, fundraise or leave a gift in your Will, please get in touch. Sue Smith, Head of Fundraising @mywishcharity

mywishcharity

Did you know‌ There are 850,000 people living in the UK with dementia. There are approximately 12,800 people with dementia living in Suffolk. Around one in four of West Suffolk Hospitals inpatients have dementia.

LSS continuing to raise awareness......

The LSS Stall with Gwen Williams and Linda Allen LSS were pleased to be invited to support the recent annual Cancer Services User Group Forum, held at West Suffolk Hospital’s Education Centre. The successful event, attended by over a 100 people, included talks, discussion groups and a market place with various information stalls. The LSS stall was very well visited and worked well in partnership with the West Suffolk Lymphoedema Service who had a stall at this event for the first time. Watch this space for further news of LSS being out and about, raising awareness of both Lymphoedema and Lipodema.

A buzzy time of year

It’s the time of year when even more insects seem about. So taking care not to get bitten, or dealing with any bites ASAP, is vitally important for those with Lymphoedema and Lipoedema. Using an effective insect repellent spray, you can get repellent bracelets and patches to help. If you are unlucky enough to get bitten, treat the bite straight away and, if swelling occurs, do contact your GP and/or the West Suffolk Lymphoedema Service for advice and treatment.

LSS’s 7th October meeting

The speaker at LSS’s 7th October meeting will be Jo Wortley, talking about the Bowen Technique. This is a gentle rolling action over soft tissue to potentially create a signal to the brain. It is a non-intrusive approach with no adjustment or manipulation and can aid balance in the body. It can be performed through light clothing and is suitable for all ages. Jo Wortley does hold Bowen Technique clinics at the Self Centre and for more information check out the following sites: www.thebowentechnique.com or www.suffolktherapies.co.uk

LSS Meeting Diary Dates: October 7th and December 2nd

7pm – 9pm at at Moreton Hall Community Centre. Do come along and find out more about living with, and managing Lymphoedema and Lipoedema in a relaxed and friendly setting, along with a cuppa and biscuit.

It make’s perfect

Health Sense!

When Laura first started advertising with us, I can honestly say I didn’t really understand what food tolerance testing was all about! I have always assumed that I am not intolerant to anything so it would never have crossed my mind to investigate but, when Laura invited me to come along to find out more, my inquisitive side couldn’t resist. I booked an appointment to go along to the Self Centre on Moreton Hall which was confirmed by email along with some information and an form to complete to give Laura a bit of background about your health and any issues you may have. Firstly, there is nothing invasive about the process – no needles or anything to worry about! Laura was incredibly friendly and professional and talked me through the whole process. It is all very scientific – basically speaking, it works by measuring the charge that goes through your body using a pen-like probe

on your acupressure points on your finger. Laura adds in various substances and then measures the reaction it gives. The whole process takes about an hour and you are given an information booklet with the results. I was really surprised about the foods that I had intolerances to – cucumber… peppers…dairy…wheat… beer…cigarette smoke… chocolate! Thank goodness I am still ok with wine and gin! After the food tolerances, you are then measured for the amount of various vitamins and minerals in your body. There were a number that I was deficient in and a couple that were very low which has prompted me to investigate further. Laura then gives advice on how you can substitute foods and how to incorporate additional minerals and vitamins in to your diet. She does offer supplements if you wish to purchase them from

www.health-sense.co.uk

her but also emails you further information if, like me, you want to get your head round it all first. With it being the summer holidays, I am yet to eliminate the intolerances from my diet but, once the children are safely back at school and normal routine has resumed, I intend to do so. The basic idea is that you cut out the foods that you have intolerance to and slowly introduce them back one at a time to measure how they make you feel. The whole process was incredibly informative and I really recommend you going along to find out for yourself. I am certainly going to start going through my family to get them tested as the test can be performed on any age.

HEALTH & BEAUTY

Bicep Tendinopathy

Also known as holding the baby/holding the handbag/ shopping bag/briefcase syndrome. We all get those times when we refuse to make two trips from the car because we want to get all the shopping in the house in one, or we are anxious to keep our handbag close to our bodies for safe keeping in a crowd or we are parked too far from work to go back for something. With cities getting bigger, it is common to have to commute for an hour or two each day, squashed between others with no room to breathe let alone hold your bag properly or set it down on the floor for a while. Despite our mobiles and laptops getting smaller, we seem to be making up the space with other…..stuff. Gym bags are another – in the bid to get fit we need kit, clean kit, towels etc. This is all great but we need to be carrying it and loading ourselves in different, more beneficial ways when lugging around our belongings. This counts for those weekend-away bags too! 26 | SEPTEMBER 2019

The Biomechanics We often hold our bag in our hand or have it dangle from our wrist (particularly if we have our phone in that same hand or keys). Our elbow is typically bent to around 90 degrees, tipping the same shoulder forwards and hunching as we try not to lose our stuff off the end of the hand; thus, we over-contract through the biceps. This forward shoulder motion can also be due to not being strong enough in the back to hold ourselves upright effectively. This results in increased the internal rotation (or hunching) of the shoulder joint – meaning we are constantly putting pressure and over-stretching the bicep tendon at both ends as well as putting tension through the muscle. When we straighten out that elbow still carrying the load, we are still contracted through the bicep as we have had to hold onto load longer than we want to. (As we don’t want to drop it, especially if it’s a baby!).


HEALTH & BEAUTY

Our hand becomes more turned inwards (pronated) – as this eases the pressure a little, so we spend many periods of time heavily loaded in this position daily. Think about those times in the day where suddenly your bag feels heavier and you start aching and shifting your hold. How are you holding it? Seeing a Therapist or Osteopath What would we look for l Slight bend at the elbow and the hand wanting to turn over toward the body when arm is relaxed. l As the biomechanics change, you might be tight through the chest muscles on that side, shoulder may be slightly elevated. l If you are desk based this may exacerbate a headache on that same side. Tightness through the neck (due to increased shoulder tension) on the affected side may flag up an ongoing habit of carrying the bag on the same side all the time. Signs and Symptoms l Pain at the front of the shoulder especially doing press-ups or planks l Trouble rotating your hand from a “palm up” position to “palm down” l Tenderness in the elbow pit l Struggling to straighten your elbow l Increase in tension headaches especially on the side you use to carry bags or hold the children. l Tightness in or between the shoulder blade of the affected arm

l May get back ache on the side you carry your bag as you compensate carrying the load when walking. This is especially prevalent in parents who carry children as we tend to “hike” the hip on this side also. Treatment l Ice can be used but this is a short-term method and will only dull the pain for a short while. l Change your bag – opt for a backpack instead. Typically, a synthetic material opposed to leather weighs less. l Lighten the load- edit your bags contents. Leave things at work if you can l Massage into the bicep can help lengthen the muscle and reduce some inflammation l Gentle stretching of the pectoral muscles and upper traps will help take some tension off the shoulder and neck l Strengthening exercises to help correct the mechanics in the shoulder and at the elbow. So have a think, do you really need your tablet, book, all your keys, laptop, all the change and one litre bottle of water? Can you get a smaller water bottle and re-fill it more often? Just take the cards you need for money. This is a very general over-view of what a daily habit can lead to. Do not use this article as a method to diagnose yourself. Call us on 01284 769153 for more information on the best practitioner to see to get pain free.

You know the funny thing about loneliness is that you’re not alone. You may look happy on the outside but it is what is on the inside that you find hard to talk about to others, even friends and family, who may have their own problems. People tend to back off which makes you feel hopeless and more isolated. Being brave and acknowledging it, by talking about it, you are halfway there. The issue here is how you feel about yourself which could be the start of a new beginning. Start looking at yourself, but with compassion. Find out about yourself and engage with it allowing no time to feel uncomfortable. Accept how you feel and connect with it. See your worth and find out what brings you joy. Tell yourself it is ok to feel the way you do then make new connections through your own interests. Take it slowly and do not compare yourself with others. If the people around you make you feel lonely remember you are you and not anyone else, you have your own choices as to whom you mix with and what you do. By doing those things you will feel part of something again and find enjoyment. Belonging to a support group is one way of meeting new people and making a connection. Building friendships is another. Take a step forward and reach out to others in your position and be accepted as you are.

Kelly’s worth her 8000 0344 897 weight in gold! Kelly Cooper who runs the Moreton Hall Slimming World groups on Thursday & Saturday mornings was delighted to be awarded ‘Gold’ status by the national slimming club because of her success for helping dozens of people in the community to start losing weigh and improve their health. The accolade is given to Slimming World Consultants who consistently have 100 or more members in their group over several months, and who provide such exceptional service that members come back week after week because they’re losing weight beautifully and wouldn’t miss their weekly group for anything. It represents the highest level of service in slimming and makes Kelly one of the most successful of Slimming World’s 5000 Consultants, meaning Bury St Edmunds is home to some of the best slimming support in the UK. [It’s the 1st time Kelly has been awarded the prize since becoming a Consultant in June 2014. Kelly says: “it’s an absolute privilege d to have received the ‘Gold’ award. I absolutely love my job. I’m passionate about helping people to transform their lives by

losing weight and seeing them succeed is reward enough, but being given this recognition for the whole group really is the icing on the cake. This award belongs to the Sybil Andrews Saturday morning group 134 members. They’re the ones who make our group the success that they are, with their fabulous commitment, the wonderful support they give each other every week, and, above all, their impressive weight losses while following Slimming World’s Food Optimising eating plan. They make the group a fun, buzzy place to be and I can safely say I always look forward to going to work. I truly believe I have the best job in the world. “The Sybil Andrews group has really put healthy weight loss on the map in Bury St Edmunds. Obesity is at record levels everywhere

.

and with 67 per cent of adults in Bury St Edmunds being affected, many people here are suffering a range of weight-related health problems from diabetes to heart problems and feelings of low self-worth that impact on their working and personal lives every day. It’s never been more important that people who struggle with their weight get the support to make the changes needed to lead healthier lives – both for themselves and their children, too.”

To join the on of Kelly’s group, which are held every Thursday at 9.30am & 11.30am at Moreton Hall Community Centre or every Saturday at 8.30am & 10.30am at Sybil Andrews Academy, either pop along or give Kelly a call on 07792 604204. 32 | SEPTEMBER 2019

The 19th hole

Welcome back to the 19th hole, this month see’s us move into our last month of summer and what a summer of golf it has been. However, in September we still have one massive golfing event to look forward to this is of course the SOLHEIM CUP!!

The Solheim Cup is a biennial golf tournament for professional women golfers contested by teams representing Europe and the United States. The cup is played over three days. Since 2002, there have been 28 matches—eight foursomes, eight four-balls and 12 singles on the final day. This is the same format as the Ryder Cup. This year’s venue is the Gleneagles Resort, Scotland. Leading the European team on her home soil is Ladies European and Solheim Cup legend Catriona Matthew and for the USA the captain for the third time is Juli Inkster. The USA currently hold the trophy, with Europe’s last win coming in 2013 in Colorado. So here is hoping that the ladies can get it done and keep the trophy from making the trip back across the pond. If you have never seen this event before I would advise you to watch it, its an amazing spectacle of golf around an amazing venue with the best players on the planet battling it out for their team. Here’s to a home win…. COME ON EUROPE!!!!

Coaches Corner – PUTT LIKE A TOUR PRO This month we have a look at putting and how you learn from some of the best

34 | SEPTEMBER 2019

putters in the world. The guys from PGA LIFE 365 YouTube channel are going to highlight TWO ideas that you can try the next time you head to the course. Many of us struggle with tension in our putting game, whether its over an important short putt and from distance and try to judge distance. Having tension in your technique will not allow you to perform to the best of your ability. These TWO simple yet TOUR PROVEN ideas will allow you to lose that tension and free up your putting stroke for your next visit to the golf course. FORWARD PRESS – Some of you that watch the golf on TV closely would have seen this movement completed by Phil Mickelson. This


HEALTH && BEAUTY FOOD DRINK

movement is when the handle of the putting is pressed forward towards the target and then straight after the putting is moved in the other direction. This movement is designed to take out getting stuck or locked over the shot and then seeing very robotic or quick movements in the putting stroke. GIVE IT A GO! THE HOOVER – Again this movement is used on tour most famously by Rickie Fowler. The trick with this move is to get set up as normal, then slightly raise the putter from the floor just before you start your stroke. This move is again there to get rid of any tension out of the putting stroke before taking the club away. GIVE IT A GO! Both of these points are used as triggers to activate to player into a movement. Its important to have these points on all areas of your game so that you don’t allow external factors and pressures affect your performance. We have ONE both tip for you… but this in the video on our YouTube page, pop over and have a watch and we hope this helped. The guys at PGA LIFE 365 have a video on this topic if you would like a more in depth look at these aspects and more ways to putt better. Please visit them on YouTube at PGA LIFE 365 and don’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.

As we are in the middle of the main holiday season we do not have a formal meeting in FULL PAGE FLIGHT LAB August. However, a number of members enjoyed a stroll and picnic at Nowton Park on 7th August. It was a little breezy but we all had a good time. Our next meeting will be held as usual at the Moreton Hall Community Centre on Wednesday 4 September at 7.30 pm. There will be a talk by Libby Ranzetta on the subject of ‘It’s a Bat’s Life’, together with a raffle, refreshments and lots of friendly chat. We welcome new members – do come along and check us out – your first meeting is free.

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. Here’s to a great month of golf, and I will see you in October.If you quote MHD or SGD when booking your first lesson with me then you will receive £5 off, below are my contact details please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Based in Bury St Edmunds, Bury Wholefoods brings sustainable whole foods, plastic-free products and eco-friendly household supplies straight to your door. We deliver within a 10-mile radius of Bury St Edmunds and a 6-mile radius of Newmarket. Having reignited my passion for good healthy food while on a detox retreat, I stumbled across a health food shop in Cornwall selling natural household cleaning products on a refill system. My concept for an online business that offers zero waste products and a personal delivery service to the local community was born. I now also have a stall every Saturday at the Bury St Edmunds market, which is really helping to grow the business and build awareness. My goal is to encourage the local community to be involved in a circular economy rather than the linear one we are living in. By reducing the number of disposable products that we consume and maximising the way we reuse, recycle and compost, we can fight to reach total zero waste.

Ellisons Solicitors announces merger with Gross & Co. The law firm extends its reach to West Suffolk and beyond Leading law firm, Ellisons Solicitors, has announced its merger with Bury St Edmundsbased firm Gross & Co. which took place on 1st August 2019. This merger will give Ellisons a London base and a second office in Suffolk having established its Ipswich office five years ago. Ellisons now has seven offices in total, including its head office in Colchester. Following the success of the Ipswich office, which is celebrating its fifth anniversary this year, Ellisons has been keen to expand its presence in the county. Integral to its success is Ellisons’ commitment to delivering excellent client service from start to finish; an ethos shared by Gross & Co. Established in 1848, Gross & Co. will bring a high level of complementary expertise and 25 additional staff into the Ellisons ‘fold’. With its reputation for immigration and charity law, Gross & Co will help to bolster Ellisons’ offering nationally and internationally, and the newly-merged entity will be known as ‘Ellisons incorporating Gross & Co.’ for an initial period. All current staff at Gross & Co. will continue in their roles and remain in the Grade II-listed premises on Guildhall Street, Bury St Edmunds. Senior Partner, Graeme Kirk and Finance Partner, Sohan Sidhu will continue as Partners, while Elizabeth Hodder will remain in her role as head of the Family team in Bury St Edmunds. Graeme Kirk will also take a place on Ellisons’ Management Board, the body responsible for the firm’s overall management and strategy. Both Graeme and Sohan are listed in the Who’s Who Legal 2019, which recognises leading international solicitors in their specialist fields. They are the only East Anglian solicitors to be recognised for the specialism of Corporate 46 46 || SEPTEMBER SEPTEMBER 2019 2019

Immigration Law, with entry to the publication achieved by nomination only from lawyers around the world. Graeme and Sohan are also featured in the Legal 500 and have advised and assisted many East Anglian businesses in relation to UK immigration issues. Guy Longhurst, Managing Partner at Ellisons said: “We are delighted to be announcing this merger with Gross & Co., not least because there is so much synergy between our firms. We truly believe that our respective service offerings and firm cultures are as near perfect a match as you’ll ever find. Bury St Edmunds is a fantastic location, and having previously acquired Wanham Longhurst & Co., my father’s firm, we are confident that our new and existing clients and colleagues will benefit from the greater opportunities and services presented by the merger with Gross & Co.” Commenting on the merger, Graeme Kirk said: “I’m very excited to welcome Ellisons to its new home in Bury St Edmunds. It is a wonderful opportunity to grow the business further and with Guy’s family connections within Bury St Edmunds’ legal community, I’m very much looking forward to developing our client relationships both past and present.” Ellisons offers a comprehensive range of services to both corporate and private clients, including: Commercial Property, Residential Property, Dispute Resolution, Wills, Trust and Probate, Insurance Litigation, Employment and HR, Corporate and Commercial, International Services and many other areas which are listed on the website:

NEW AUTUMN REGULAR CLASS TIMETABLE AVAILABLE ONLINE SEPTEMBER WORKSHOPS Yin Yoga with Gong Bath Meditation – with Ying Chan and Vicky Warner Sunday 1st September. Time: 5pm-7pm. Cost: £30.

Yin Yoga allows us to work slowly and deeply on the connective tissues, ligaments and bones that are often overlooked in fast paced Yang style classes. This wonderfully healing workshop is enhanced by the sound of the Gong, chimes and drum.

Introduction to Mindfulness - 8 Wk Course – with Jane Dow Wednesday 4th September Time: 6.15pm-7.15pm. Cost: £80 and includes hand out material.

Meditation benefits general wellbeing and radically improves our relationship with ourselves and others. The practise of learning how to focus our mind and be able to let go of ‘mind chatter’ leads to a profound sense of stillness which causes a hormonal change in our bodies – from fight or flight adrenalin to calming endorphins- this gives us a real sense of control over our own lives.

Kids yoga - Monthly with Victoria Wright Thursday 7th September. Time: 2pm-3.30pm. Cost: £10 per child.

A creative, fun and friendly monthly yoga workshop for those aged between 8 and 12. These workshop are carefully structured to engage your child though a range of activities including story-telling techniques, working with crystals and mindfulness (by working with the senses). The workshops have a focus that aims to build self-confidence, and develop a child’s social and emotional understanding of themselves and the world in which they live. Parents/ Guardians: We have a welcoming café should you wish to stay for a cup of tea/coffee and a slice of cake, or, if you want to do some yoga yourself most months we will be running an adult yoga class at the same time, 2-3.30pm.

Mastering Relaxation - with Niamh Kavanagh Saturday 14th September. Time: 2pm-4.30pm. Cost: £25

Discover the art to being relaxed while active. This Yin and Yang yoga workshop is designed to create a deep sense of peace and relaxation, using movement and breathing exercises which will help you connect with your body and calm your mind, increasing creativity and clarity.

Asana with Philosophy Yoga Workshop with Heather Boon Saturday 21st September. Time: 1pm-4.30pm. Cost: £30

Find Yoga texts a little overwhelming? Or curious about yoga philosophy? This is half day of active practice, reflects on some of the familiar and not so familiar texts, looking at how relevant they are to today and applying them to your practice.

Woodland Wind-Down with Tina Campan Wednesday 25th September. Time: 7pm-9pm. Cost: £10

Get away from it all for a couple of hours and join us in Nowton park for our monthly Woodland Wind down. Turn off your phone, put away your laptop, escape from the office and come back to nature!

Rougham Control Tower Aviation Museum

Thank You All - Again What great continuing support. September is always a difficult month for the museum with many decisions looming. How many weeks left till we close, will we have an Indian Summer so we can stay open longer? What work do we need to organise for the darker months? Who will be our guest speakers for the winter meetings? What is needed for the AGM in December? All these unknowns – and more. Our thank you is two fold. Firstly for all the support we had at the Echoes Day. A great eye opener in reenactment history and a formal memorial to all the airmen and personnel we fondly remember. A big thank you to the small group of members and volunteers who made the day possible. Thank you to all who donated items (especially the raffle and Quirky Cakes) and their time. The second thank you is for to ALL who give their continuing support, with visits on our open days and by appointment. Our attendance numbers are increasing month on month and again our years total is looking excellent. We look forward to meeting all our visitors – Sunday 10am to 4.00pm, and don’t forget the Tea Room with the great cakes! 50 | SEPTEMBER 2019

Next Event On September 14th and 15th – Airfield ‘Fly-In – Visit the museum by air. The North Weald Marshaller’s (guy’s who tell planes where to park!!) are volunteers who work extremely hard at airshows and similar aviation events. They are holding a ‘Fly-In’ of visiting pilots and aircraft to help fund their activities (expenses etc.). The Museum also receives a donation and will be open both to visit and purchase tea/coffee, food etc. We also hope to have a selection of visiting traders – books, models etc. Subject to the weather, we are hoping for some very interesting visiting aircraft – from all regions of the country. Future Events September 24th – Guest Speaker Evening 7.30pm October 29th – Guest Speaker Evening 7.30pm We will remember in December our departed hero’s, with our remembrance service. Sunday December 8th, 10.45 hrs. for 11.00. All very welcome. Our final Thank You – for all their help with our monthly piece in this magazine, goes to the Moreton Hall Directory. We have confirmed links from this publication to new visitors at the museum. Although small in size it packs a significant punch in our local community, letting people know what we are doing at the museum. Thank You to ALL at MHD. We look forward to seeing you all in the coming weeks, please join us. Our details: www.rctam94th.co.uk E-mail: info@rctam94th.co.uk Telephone: 07931 971771

SEPTEMBER’S 5 TIPS TO HELP REDUCE CLOTHING

O

ur obsession with clothes is causing untold environmental damage and can cost a small fortune. It is calculated that the clothing industry worldwide has a CO2 imprint of about 1 billion tonnes per year, more than all airlines and shipping companies put together. Surely it is time for us to stop this craziness. Here are a few tips to help you on your way.

1

2

The simplest thing to do is buy less clothes

Admit that you own too much clothing

Set a monthly spending limit and increase your disposable income. Spend less time thinking about what to wear and more time living to increase wardrobe space.

Embrace the idea of just one black dress, one black shirt, one swimsuit, one winter coat, etc. How many of your clothes have you not worn for over a year?

3

4

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

5

Purchase quality over quantity

Don’t just dump clothes you rarely wear

Try and avoid synthetic materials

It may cost a bit more at first but will last longer saving you money and helping the environment. Avoid the sale racks – don’t be lured into buying things you do not need.

donate, sell, recycle and upcycle them. Try wearing fewer colours, it also means less accessories such as shoes, belts, jewellery, handbags etc.

Plastic based nightmares such as nylon and polyester send tiny micro-plastic fibres by the billion into our water sources every time we wash them.

This months’ make is all

SHELL TURTLES! A great way to use the shells you may have collected from the beach over the Summer YOU WILL NEED:

First you need to make the salt dough… flour, salt, water, food colouring, and then sea shells, googly eyes, clear nail varnish (optional) and a glue gun. n Make up the salt dough by mixing 2 cups of flour and 1 cup of salt together, then add half cup of water and mix slowly. Add more water if requited in tiny amounts. n Separate the salt dough into 4 balls n Add different coloured drops of food dye and mix n Separate each ball into 5 and shape to form 4 legs and a head n Glue gun a shell to make the turtles back n Glue eyes in place n Use clear nail varnish to shine them up.

What other animals can you make? Send me your pictures on my facebook page. I would love to see your work. SEPTEMBER 2019 | 59

ST EDMUNDSBURY GARDENERS’ SOCIETY Meetings are an opportunity for all members to come together to share ideas, discuss problems, weigh up solutions and to acknowledge successes. The members also benefit from and gain ideas from speakers on a wide range of subjects that they can then translate into their own way of gardening.

Meetings are held on the 4th Tuesday of each month from 7.309pm at the Quaker Meeting House. Guest visitors are welcome and refreshments are served after the speaker presentation. There are up to 5 speaker presentations a year, 2-3 trips out and at least 3 bring ‘n’ share social get togethers. In July, despite the best efforts of the weather, the afternoon social get together was a success and enjoyed by the members who came along and joined in.

Garden Confidential by Tom Clarke

What to do in your garden in September.. September is a great harvesting time for those of us who grow fruit and vegetables in the garden. Nothing beats the taste of freshly picked fruit and vegetables but if you don’t grow your own then don’t forget a trip to the countryside to pick blackberries.

Tom’s jobs for the month.. Fruit O Pick Autumn Raspberries O If you are lucky enough to have one or two Apple trees then a sure sign that they are ripe is when you start to see windfall apples around the tree. O Look out for rotting fruits on your pear, apple and plum trees. Pick them off as they will spread disease if left on the tree. O Plant strawberry plants this month. Or use the runners to establish new plants O If you have more plums than you need, then freeze them by washing, halving and de-stoning them, before packing them into freezer bags. O Now is the time to take hardwood cuttings to increase your stock of currants gooseberries and figs. 62 | SEPTEMBER 2019

Flower Garden O Collect and sow seed from perennials and hardy annuals O With Spring in mind plant wallflowers now O The middle of September is the very latest date for planting Christmas hyacinth bulbs so that they are in flower for the 25th December O Look out for opportunities to collect seeds from your perennials O Prune your climbing roses this monthremove some of the oldest woody stems and tie in any new shoots that are emerging O Order spring flowering bulbs O It’s a good time to take hardwood rose cuttings.


Vegetable Garden O Lift and harvest your late potatoes and onions O Keep the hoe going to prevent weeds getting the upper hand O The end of September is the best time to start planting garlic bulbs for cropping next year. O Lift marrows, pumpkins and squashes off the ground with straw or a piece of slate in order to keep them clean and reduce slug damage. O Keep the runner bean harvest going as long as possible by regularly watering and removing any older pods on the bush.

Investing in the Future By Chris Ridgeon

The agenda for our regular meetings with clients always includes crystal ball gazing to help them to scope out their future plans. Obviously, finance and performance play the major roles but, as we often point out, their businesses are only as good as their people. I’m happy to report that here at Whiting & Partners we practice what we preach and strive to recruit the right people. At Bury St Edmunds we’re celebrating the success of one of our young trainees, Emily Haines, who has scored a world topping mark of 90% in the latest Financial Reporting exams set by the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants. She lives in the Moreton Hall area and has been with us since leaving King Edward VI School four years ago. The road to qualification as a chartered accountant is not short and Emily now has two further exams in the Audit and Business Leader categories.

Whiting & Partners Trainee Emily Haines

As one of the oldest independent firms of chartered accountants and business advisers in the eastern counties we’re always looking for bright young people to enter the profession. Emily’s commitment and hard work have been rewarded with this worldwide top place. She is actually the second of our trainees to achieve that position this year. Hannah Shales from our Wisbech office also scored 90%. Over in St Ives, trainee Luke Bacon scored 99% in his latest exam and has won the acclaimed Spicer & Pegler prize awarded by the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England & Wales. We feel we’re investing in our future and encouraging our young people to work hard but also to enjoy themselves in a stimulating and challenging environment. Not just in Bury St Edmunds but also in our other nine offices. Over the years the image and role of accountants has changed, driven both by demand and technological change. Hardly a day passes without HMRC or the Treasury tweaking guidelines or introducing legislation. We’ve been in business for over 90 years and our future is bright with young people ready to step forward.

CHARGED UP Thankfully I’d loaded the car

up the night before. It would take more than moderate to heavy drizzle to dampen our holiday spirits. I’d downloaded some holiday music (get me!) and the road trip to Derbyshire was ready to roll! Fast forward 2½ hours. We’d crawled through the A14 roadworks (wow, that new road is going to be incredible when it’s complete, it’s just as shame I’ll probably be about 97 years old by then). Our first stop, the glamourous and imaginatively named Grantham North Services on the A1 was coming up. It’s everything you picture it to be, only twice as dilapidated – although I’m not sure it said that on its welcome sign? The primary job was to charge the car. As we pulled into the car park we spotted a row of a dozen white Tesla superchargers, gleaming in the heavy rain. I don’t think most of the Tesla owners wanted to be associated with us in our

BY ANDREW SOUTHWOOD

Nissan Leaf, but one kind soul, recognising I was a bit lost, got out of his warm, dry, £100k car and pointed me in the right direction. You see, some of you may not realise this, but ‘other’ electric cars don’t get those luxurious charging stations. Our charger was round the back, in the lorry park, by the bins, a bit clunky and looking rather sorry for itself. However, it did the job. We had a coffee (which cost more than the fuel in the car), a toilet break and 30 mins later we were good to go. Our planned lunch stop was just a few miles away at Belton House. An amazing National Trust property, which crucially, has a fantastic outdoor woodland adventure play area. Perfect to stretch the legs and picnic. We basically had the place to ourselves, as no other fools were out in this relentless rain. Still, we were on holiday and so in shorts,

wellies (I’d cleverly left those accessible in the boot) and water proofs we just got on with it. Picnic in the car is always a big hit with the kids. Not sure why? It’s not my idea of fun, especially after a long drive, but needs must. A quick change out of wet/muddy gear, elbows and feet in every direction, and we were on the final 90 min leg of our journey. Our destination, a beautifully remote house on a working farm came into view. The rain eased off long enough for us to meet the owner and unload the car. Everyone was wet and cold, but happily the adrenaline of exploring the holiday cottage was keeping spirits up. A few hours later, the kids all bathed and in their new beds, we slouched on the sofa downstairs. What are we going to do tomorrow? Let’s double check the weather… oh right. Now the hard work really begins.

Christ Church MORETON HALL At the time of writing we are enjoying a wonderful summer. Yes, there has been some torrential rain, but by and large the temperatures have not been too bad and we have greatly enjoyed the sun. I really hope you have had a relaxing time with friends and family and done the things you needed to do as well as kept on top of the garden, if you have one. However, as September dawns, there is a tremendous sense of nervousness, not only on Moreton Hall but across the country. At the moment 31st October would mean we leave the European Union without a Brexit deal. This is causing anxiety to all forms of commerce and trade and has an effect on pay and conditions, house prices, and everything else. More than that, there is a collective unease in people and their relationships. Of course, we have all the immediate problems of children returning to school, careers to pick up, and targets to meet, as well. So this can be a very anxious time for us all. In the Bible one of God’s is the God of peace and Jesus is called ‘The Prince of Peace’. We live in a world that unfortunately has not got much peace, there continues to be wars and terrorism. We are all appalled by the mass shootings that take place in America and in other countries as well. Where is the God of peace? Well, the God of peace wants to dwell in our hearts. If we invite Him in He gives us ‘a peace that passes all understanding’. As your Parish Priest I make it my discipline to try to pray in our church building every day. I must say that when I have finished 82 | SEPTEMBER 2019

my prayers I am often overwhelmed with a sense of peace. Although the church faces many challenges I have a sense in which God is with me and things will come to a joyful conclusion in the end. The more I share that message with people who then try to get in contact and receive peace from God, so their lives are transformed, new priorities are given and anxieties are dealt with. With the removal of anxieties a better and greater sense of well-being and often longevity follows. Peace permeates into our relationships; we are able to help others more effectively, listen more carefully and often provide the answers they need. Peace is something that is not only poured into us but flows out from us changing and affecting society. What we need are more peace-filled people in the world, working for peace. Jesus said, ‘Blessed are the peacemakers for they will be called the children of God,’ which implies that if you are a child of God, and we are all supposed to be children of God, we will bring peace. So my prayer for you all this autumn as we go back to schools, continue our careers, face the challenges of Brexit, and other issues, is that the God of peace will bless you in every way. So that you will find peace in your hearts, and peace will .

With every good wish Yours sincerely,

Revd. Canon Jonathan Ford. Minister Christ Church Moreton Hall

CRICKET CLUB

Developing young players is central to Bury St Edmunds Cricket Club and this season two young players have joined the club with the aim of playing the game at a higher level, Daniel Moriarty has played a number of games with Surrey’s 2nd team gaining experience of playing against some of the country’s top players. Justin Broad is just 18 years old and is at the moment the leading run scorer in the East Anglian Premier League. The photo shows Justin Broad taken after making 125 runs against Saffron Walden he later scored 118 not out against Great Withchingham. Josh Davey who now plays for Somerset started his career with the club this season took the first two wickets as Somerset won the One Day Cup at Lords in May. Thanks to John Williams the junior cricket has progressed with large numbers of boys and girls enjoying All Stars Cricket on a Sunday morning, most evenings the Victory Ground has cricket taking place with volunteers helping with the coaching. To date some 88 senior and 45 junior matches have taken place. The season enters its finale with the Saturday 2nd team hoping for promotion and the Sunday 1st team top of the Hunts Bats Sunday League. The next stage of the clubs development is a Scorebox which will maintain the Victory Ground facilities as one of the best grounds for sports in the Eastern region.

THE LADY VANISHES (Drama)

A new adaptation of the much-loved film that was directed by Alfred Hitchcock and starred Margaret Lockwood and Michael Redgrave. Socialist Iris is travelling home to England on the train when an accident introduces her to the mild-mannered Miss Froy. After her travelling companion suddenly disappears, Iris is perplexed to find that all the other passengers deny ever having seen her. With the help of urbane musician Max, she turns detective and together they become drawn into a complex web of European intrigue as they try to solve the mystery of why the lady vanished. Building on the phenomenal decade-long success of The Agatha Christie Company, which sold over two million tickets around the UK, The Classic Thriller Theatre Company has produced hits from Ruth Rendell, Edgar Wallace and Levinson & Link, the writers of Murder, She Wrote. A quick-witted and devilishly fun thriller, the 1939 classic film is ranked as one of the best British films of all time. This early masterpiece from Hitchcock – the ‘Master of Suspense’ – is brought to life in a new adaptation from the masters of the stage thriller.
