EDITOR’S LETTER

December WELCOME TO THE

ISSUE

Hello and welcome to the December issue of the Southgate Directory. It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! So, how are your preparations going? I say it every year, but I’m determined to be all ready well in time for the big day, it’d be nice to relax a bit on Christmas Eve rather than still wrapping presents at midnight! Maybe I’ll even treat myself to a cheeky ‘Frosty Night’ Cocktail – recipe on page 39! Let’s face it, most of us over indulge over the holiday, so if your jeans are feeling a bit on the snug side, why not enter our crossword competition on page 46 where you can win a FREE training session with PT Joe to kick start your healthy new year! Well, the thick jumpers are finally out and the heating is on full blast, it is definitely feeling like Winter – but, if you still want to look fab this season, you could try a poncho, there’s a style and pattern to suit everyone, have a look at page 58 for some ideas. Whether you are having a busy Christmas or just enjoying a quiet one this year, we would like to wish you a very merry Christmas and a happy new year! And we’ll see will see you in January!

Bury St Edmunds Golf Club Bury St Edmunds Golf Club offers a welcoming social environment. With an 18-hole championship course and a slightly easier, but still challenging 9-hole course, plus expert coaching to help you improve your game.

Pathway to Golf

Bury St Edmunds Golf Club understand that many people aspire to start (or restart) golf, but the process can seem daunting and expensive. They’ve created a programme designed around the stage you’re at, with easy progression, and in small groups to keep the costs low. After a free 15 minute assessment you will be invited to join one of the following groups:

BEGINNER PROGRAMME (£50 for 6 lessons)

INTERMEDIATE PROGRAMME

(£75 for 6 lessons)

ACADEMY PROGRAMME

• coaching in small groups (4+) • covers basics of the swing, chipping and putting • includes loan of equipment • assessment for further progression

• coaching for technique improvements • in small groups (3+) • intro to 9-hole course incl 1 lesson on-course • special deals for green fees and further lessons

• 9-hole academy pass • coaching tailored to individual need • discounts on lesson packages • assessment for academy ‘handicap’ • progress to the 18-hole course

The 9-hole course is open to the public on a pay-and-play. Frequent players can pay £65/ month for unlimited golf, with no contract term. For those keen to join the Club, they have now introduced a scheme to pay the joining fee over 5 years and you can become a golf and social member for the equivalent of just:

9-hole course: approx. £13/week 27-hole (both courses) approx. £21/week WELCOMING PEOPLE OF ALL AGES & ABILITIES • JUNIORS (7+) • LADIES • SENIORS

COMMUNITY

GARDEN You have probably seen the recent coverage about the community garden which is now well underway! Despite the pouring rain, Patrick joined members of the NNRA and children from Hardwick Primary as well as local residents last month as they started to plant the garden. This is just the beginning though and there is still lots to do and we need more volunteers contact Ann Williamson, Chair of the Nowton Neighbourhood Residents Association nowtonnra@gmail.com for more details or watch this space for details of action days which we will be planning.

HIGHWAY ISSUES Just a reminder that if you have Highways issues to report (overgrown bushes or trees, parking issues, potholes, pavements that need mending etc) the easiest and most effective way of reporting it is online at http://www.suffolk.gov. uk. By reporting it on the website you can track the progress and see what other work is being done in the area.


Events at the Community Centre

LOCAL NEWS

We are both trustees at the Southgate Community Centre and there are a number of events coming up at the centre over the Christmas period which you may be interested in. Southgate’s Got Christmas on Saturday 5th December 2pm -4pm is a great free event, open to all, organised by Southgate Church and includes crafts, entertainment and lots of Christmas fun for all the family. Then on Saturday 12th December 7-10pm there is the Southgate Family disco at the community centre. Family tickets (allowing entry for two adults and up to 3 children) are just £10, you can bring your own food and drink and there will be a disco and lots of games to get you into the festive spirit. Tickets are now on sale from the Community Centre Office and I hope to see you there! If you are planning ahead for the New Year, on February 13th we will have our second Valentines Ball following the incredible success of last year’s event – more info next month so watch this space!

AREA AROUND THE SHOPS We are working to improve the general look of the area around the shops and Community Centre. The shopping parade is actually managed by a company based in London and we are trying to put some pressure on them to smarten the area up, repaint the parade and remark the car park by the shops. We are also working with St Edmundsbury Borough Council to do some planting around the car park which is by the Community Centre to make the area look nicer. Finally, following some complaints from residents, we are trying to take action to limit the number of very large banners and signs that seem to be increasing in the area over recent months.

W hat’s been happening at...

HARDWICK Primary School It has probably been one of the busiest and exciting terms ever at Hardwick Primary School as we welcome for the first time pupils in Year 5. Mayor Patrick Chung kindly spent the afternoon at school and opened their new classrooms while many other exhilarating activities and initiatives have been happening. KS1 have held a super hero themed day and we have been overrun by Ancient Greeks as KS2 children took part in a themed day. Year 4 have been on their residential to Burwell House and Year 5 have been to Cineworld as part of the schools film festival, completed their Bikeability Training and are to visit Norwich Castle. In December we have a KS1 camp fire, FoHPS Movie Night, Christmas Fair and Disco. An amazing 86 shoe boxes filled by children and their families have been donated to Operation Christmas and delivered to Christ Church, Moreton Hall. There was a packed assembly with parents for the Harvest Festival.

10 | DECEMBER 2015

The whole school staff and pupils took part in Children in Need day wearing fancy dress and wearing Pudsey ears with a hugely successful cake sale raising over ÂŁ400. The same day children with their parents, grandparents, guardians and friends took part in the Recycle for Suffolk initiative 1000 Stars, a hive of bustling activity where stars were made using recycled and reused materials. Completed by schools across the county the completed stars will be on display in the Apex. And so onto Christmas and as usual we have our customary festive entertainment, firstly Early Years staging a Nativity performance and then two showings of the KS1 and KS2 Christmas Shows. On behalf of staff, pupils, governors and friends we wish you all a very happy and prosperous Christmas and New Year Daryl Jones Headteacher

Dear reader,

Pebbles takes to the wards to make a difference to Margo A senior staff nurse at West Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust is now getting extra help at work and home thanks to a four-legged friend who has become the hospital’s first hearing dog. Margo Harrison realised something was wrong with her hearing around 15 years ago, but tried to carry on as normal until one day a patient told her the fire alarm was going off. She then decided to apply to the Hearing Dogs for Deaf People charity for her own furry friend to help make her home and work life easier. In March, she started working with two-yearold cocker spaniel Pebbles, who has received special training so that she can alert Margo to noises such as alarm clocks, the cooker timer or a knock at the door. Pebbles now joins Margo at work in the hospital’s pre-admission unit, where she acts as a constant reminder to patients to look at Margo when they are talking so that she can read their lips.

to her home since getting Pebbles, while her family no longer have to shout at her to get her attention. “Pebbles and I have built up our sound work training, and she will nudge me with her nose to alert me to noises,” said Margo, who has volunteered with Hearing Dogs for Deaf People for the past nine years. “She is in the process of learning the fire alarm and will have a different signal to practice for that, but is doing brilliantly.

“When my hearing first started to deteriorate, I took lip reading classes and did a sign language course,” said Margo, who lives near Bury St Edmunds and has worked at West Suffolk for 25 years. “I tried to carry on living in the hearing world, but was gradually finding things more difficult, especially as hearing loss is an invisible disability.

“Having Pebbles has made a big difference at work as well – my colleagues adore her and she makes the patients smile, and often helps if people are feeling nervous. She lies by my side in her uniform when I see patients, which also reminds them to look at me when they talk so that I can lip read. Not only does that make my life so much easier, but also means they don’t need to repeat themselves.

“People would be rude to me and think I was ignoring them. Like a lot of people with hearing loss, I gradually stopped doing things and wouldn’t go anywhere on my own. That is when I decided to apply for a hearing dog of my own.”

“In the future I’m planning to take her along to talks so that she can help me to raise awareness about the great work the charity does. I also hope she will help me explain to people who are on the waiting list just what a big difference a hearing dog can make.”

Although Margo is now considered profoundly deaf, she hasn’t missed a visitor

from Nowton Neighbourhood Residents Association (NNRA) In October the NNRA held its first AGM and we reported upon events since it began. We’ve been working closely with Havebury, St Edmundsbury Borough Council and Suffolk County Council to do the best we can for our area. With support from our Councillors, Sarah Stamp and Patrick Chung, we now have a cycle rack outside the community centre, a revamped play park and they have funded bulbs for the community garden. Parking has been, and still is in areas, a problem and again we are working to do all we can for our residents but this is an issue across the town. We invited Tim Passmore, Police and Crime Commissioner for Suffolk, to come along and talk to us about the future policing of our town. He spoke of how policing will change with the use of technology and acknowledged

there would be challenges due to budget reductions. For those of you who use Facebook you will have seen how some of the children from the gardening club at Hardwick Primary School helped plant 1250 wild garlic bulbs in the community garden at the beginning of November. We also had very good coverage of this both in the EADT and the Bury Free Press. Cyclamen have been planted under cover of the trees and buddleia planted along Grange Walk which should encourage butterflies. If any of you would like to be involved with future planting please contact us at nowtonnra@ gmail.co.uk

December in the woods

D

ecember finds Woodland Ways volunteers spreading wood chips on the path through Home Covert. A simple task but one which helps the people who use the path, particularly dog walkers. The path can easily become overgrown and almost invisible, such a carpet of leaves this autumn, walking through the covert is like walking on a mattress! Later in winter a mudbath is prevented by the surfacing of wood chips. Look up while the trees are bare and you might spot some mistletoe. There is some in one or two locations around Bury St Edmunds. This strange, semi-parasitic plant grows on the branches of apple trees for preference, but also on lime, poplar, hawthorn, blackthorn and rowan. It relies on its host tree for water and minerals but can use sunlight to photosynthesise via its leaves and stems. You can often see a mistletoe plant, green and flourishing, suspended in a bare, black winter tree. Mistle thrushes and blue tits eat the white fruits, the former bird may be the origin of the name, and a mistle thrush will

furiously protect its own clump of mistletoe, fighting off other birds. There are certainly blue tits in and around Home Covert, and if you see a mistle thrush you are very lucky, for these are now rare and precious. Mistletoe was our foremost Christmas decoration until the nineteenth century, when, of course, Christmas trees arrived. Just inside the gate into Home Covert stands a holly, dark green, glossy and healthy when all around is dormant. Hollies can live for up to three hundred years and this one dates back to the days when this was a wood on the farm. It used to be considered lucky to plant a holly as it gives protection from a lightning strike, now science has proven that the spikes on the leaves can act as tiny electricity conductors, so there was truth in the old belief. One ancient source lists holly as a bringer of domestic happiness and enchantment, so perhaps we should all have some in our homes over the Christmas period.

Join us at Woodland Ways... Why not join in with a Woodland Ways work party to help improve the Moreton Hall woods? No experience is needed and all are welcome; we’ll show you what to do. For more information please see www.woodlandways.org.uk, see the Woodland Ways noticeboard in the Community Centre, contact Nick Sibbett on 01284 723847 or email information@woodlandways.org.uk.

Rachels Mobile Hairdressing

Fully qualified stylist providing a top quality hairdressing service in the comfort of your own home. Our speaker for November was Helen Smith who gave a talk on the History of the Chadacre Agricultural Trust. This was formerly The Chadacre Agricultural Institute and was one of the first agricultural education courses in the UK. It was founded by the first Earl of Iveagh in 1920, whose experience of farming on the Elveden Estate had convinced him of the need for sound practical training for people working in agriculture. These days it provides assistance with fees, grants, research projects and education of the public. We live in an agricultural area and it was interesting to hear how farming methods had changed in East Anglia since medieval times. In those days corn was spread by hand. These changes coincided with the Industrial Revolution and population increase. The main areas of change were the 4 crop rotation system, the seed drill, mechanisation, selective animal breeding and using chemical fertilisers. There have been times of food shortages especially during the wars. Nowadays there is fierce competition from other countries. There was an update on WI business and we were pleased to be introduced to Angela Green our WI Advisor.

Welcome to the 19th hole, a place for golf tips, reviews and everything golf related.

Welcome back, well it’s that time of the year again… IT’S CHRISTMAS!! Christmas is the time of year to enjoy time with family, and for us golfers to odd round in the less than perfect conditions. So if you’re buying presents for a golfer this Christmas or you are a golfer in need of ideas to tell your family. Here are five top ideas to help improve and assist you on course in 2016.

Golfing Items for Christmas

Golfing Winter Mittens Weathers Mitts are the best way to keep your hands warm this winter. Coming with a fleece linned inner that gives amazing comfort and warmth. MacWet Rain Gloves The ‘all grip, no slip’ glove for wet weather conditions! The MacWet Mesh Golf Rain Glove is designed using MacWet’s unique Aquatec fabric, which responds to moisture and climate change, giving maximum grip, sensitivity, feel and comfort in wet weather conditions. Yardage Device These devices in my opinion speed up rounds of golf, they give the golfer instant feedback for the distance to the front, middle and back of the greens, and also on some products to hazards as well. There are so many on the market however I have only used Bushnell products and would highly recommend this brand. Bobble Hat A bobble hat is the perfect winter headwear offering protection from cold with thermal insulation. This item will make sure your looking stylish on the course this winter. Lessons with a PGA Professional Finally if you feel either yourself or a member of your family could benefit from some guidance on their golf game then maybe some lessons would insure that there are more positive golfing stories in 2016. Please contact myself for voucher information – adamtrettpga@hotmail.co.uk

Coaches Corner - Master the downhill chip shots. We have all done it, hit a great shot and ended up long of your target leaving yourself a tricky downhill chip shot. Below are a few areas to consider next time your faced with this shot. Landing Area - Focus on a spot The ball will naturally run down the slope away from you, so it’s essential that ball lands in an area that will allow for this run-out. This area will often be the closest point to you but on the putting surface. Make sure you make this a zone, as hitting a single spot is hard and will add pressure to the shot. Use loft to generate spin on landing Normally I would recommend a straight faced club that doesn’t launch high for a running shot. This shot however is better being played with more loft, this allows you to be more positive through impact. This gives you the best chance of imparting spin from a higher trajectory, allowing the elevation to help slow the speed at which the ball runs out. Practice like you play Making sure you have the correct tempo for this shot is hard, so make sure your practice swings are completed at the same intensity as you’re going to need hit of landing area and allow you get this shot to finish close. I hope this helps next time you’re faced with this style of shot on the course, these areas can be used for other aspects of your short game. The short game needs lots of practice and is often over looked by golfers but time spent on this area will improve your game. I want to take this opportunity to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, and thank you all for reading all year. If there is areas that you would like me to look at in 2016 please feel free to contact me on the email below. Quote MHD for £5 off your first golf lesson with myself.

Nicola Delglyn Osteomyologist Physical & Nutritional Therapy Hello again!

I can’t believe it is December already and if you’re household is like mine, there is great excitement waiting for the big chap to visit and bring an array of goodies for those of us who have been good this year. Christmas Carol service at school, seeing the excitement in the children’s eyes as we put up the decorations that festoon the whole house, are for me, what Christmas is all about. However, I also find this time of year a stressful one, not only considering the money that will be spent but trying to create this “wonderful Christmas” for everyone and providing an exquisite meal on Christmas Day. It doesn’t end there, organizing family visits, shopping for gifts for the whole family and the dreaded supermarket shop for the delights we will consume within a 24 hour period. Over the years I’ve managed to get a little routine together that helps me stay sane, somewhat relaxed and able to enjoy the festive season with the children and family. I’ve popped them here for you and some ideas of how you can stay healthy and well nourished throughout the festive season. Remember good healthy food is a great way to ensure you boost your immune system. Don’t let the festive season get you down: follow the tips and advice you find here, relax and enjoy yourself. Plan Ahead: Start making a list of things you need to do for Christmas early for example, shopping, food and presents, decorations, seating plans or travel arrangements. Shop Online: Although shopping locally has many advantages, High Street shopping just before Christmas can be particularly stressful, often cold and wet (in the UK anyway) and with hundreds of other stressed people trying to find the ‘perfect’ gift. Do your food shopping online too and have it delivered directly to your door. Remember to book your delivery slot early though as the prime delivery slots may well be booked early. Christmas Cards: Start writing your Christmas cards early too! Mid-November is a good time to start. Know When to Stop: Decide when you will stop your Christmas preparations and start to relax and enjoy the holiday. Work towards and try to stick to this goal, even if it is in the late afternoon on Christmas Eve. Remember that Christmas is your holiday too. Keep Calm: Play some relaxing music, perhaps seasonal carols, and burn some scented candles, incense or aromatherapy oil. Take a relaxing hot bath to unwind.

24 | DECEMBER 2015

Treatments to beat pain for Have decaffeinated coffee or herbal tea: When your body is under stress it produces cortisol which prepares you for ‘fight or flight’ situations. Caffeine in coffee and tea does too. Practice Breathing: When we’re stressed our heart beat increases and our breathing shallows, it’s all part of the fight or flight reaction. Work on reversing this process and take time to breathe deeply. Breathe in deeply through your nose, hold for 15 or 20 seconds and then breathe slowly out through your mouth, repeat for a few minutes to instantly help reduce stressful feelings. Have a ‘Great Escape’ Plan: A good idea to have some preplanned excuses to escape from proceedings if they get too stressful. Be imaginative and use things such as leaving the room to make a phone-call to a friend or perhaps checking on a neighbour. Just by having planned a couple of escape routes you’ll probably feel less stressed anyway but actually leaving the situation, even for 10 minutes, will help clear your mind and relax you. Make Time for Exercise: Christmas is, for many, a time of excessive eating and drinking and exercise can be easily overlooked. Diets are particularly popular in January! Exercise is a great way to reduce stress as it burns off hormones such as cortisol and adrenaline and helps produce mood-enhancing endorphins. Try going for a walk after dinner as the fresh air and exercise will lift your mood and make you feel better. Avoid Excessive Alcohol: Most de-stressing articles will tell you to avoid alcohol altogether but, let’s be realistic, it is Christmas! However, do avoid excessive alcohol as it dehydrates your body and makes your liver work overtime to process it. Drink as much water as alcohol as this will help you to stay hydrated, feel better and therefore cope better with stressful situations. You’ll also feel better on Boxing Day. Here are 8 tips to lighten your Christmas dinner: DON’T PUT BREAD ON THE TABLE: Most people tend to use bread as a pre-dinner appetiser. The problem with this is that we tend to eat too much of it, filling us up and adding extra calories. Instead I tend to use lettuce leaves, personally I like romaine because it is crisp and refreshing and a very good source of dietary fiber, manganese, potassium, biotin, vitamin B1, copper, iron, and vitamin C. It is also a good source of vitamin B2, omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin B6, phosphorus, chromium, magnesium, calcium, and pantothenic acid. How great is that, you can use it to wrap spinach, pate or smoked salmon for a great family appetiser. If really like bread then why not try rye bread or slice a slice of bread into 2 slices


HEALTH & BEAUTY

Physical & Nutritional Therapy adults, children & athletes then toast it lightly. A very thin slice of toast is tasty with with turkey pate or smoked salmon and spinach as a festive starter. SLICE THE TURKEY INTO APPROPRIATE SIZES: Turkey is usually the meat of choice for Christmas dinner and it is a healthy choice, just look at the benefits. It is a great source of protein, has less calories than red meat and provides iron, zinc, potassium and phosphorus. It is also a good source of vitamin B6 and niacin, which are both essential for the body’s energy production. Turkey also helps to lower cholesterol levels, is low GI and can help keep insulin levels stable. It contains the amino acid tryptophan, which produces serotonin and plays an important role in strengthening the immune system. It is also a source of selenium, which is essential for thyroid function. Slice the turkey into appropriate portion sizes before serving it’s a indirect trick to discourage overeating and I’m sure your guests would appreciate having their food on their plate ready to eat. LIGHTEN YOUR GRAVY: Most people now use gravy mixes to accompany their turkey. Whilst these are convenient, adding spoon after spoon can quickly lead to lots of additional calories. Instead try making a healthy, natural turkey gravy. Take the bag of giblets that came with the turkey, chop an onion and some carrots, plus any other vegetables you desire and add them to a large pot of water. Turn up the heat and let them simmer in the pot for about an hour. After an hour, drain the turkey stock into a jug or bowl. When the turkey is cooked add the juices from the bottom of the roasting tray to this stock mix. To thicken the gravy, add a small amount of whole grain flour or corn flour to the mix. If you want you can even add pepper and other spices until the desired taste is achieved. This natural turkey gravy will probably taste even better than a gravy mix and be a lot healthier too. PILE ON THE VEGETABLES: This is my favourite and I always have loads of vegetables on my plate. Vegetables are easy to prepare and go well with turkey. However, the biggest plus point is that they’re very good for you providing lots of vitamins and fibre with very few calories. There are plenty of different choices when it comes to vegetables. You can get out the steamer and use it to prepare peas, leeks, red cabbage, roasted parsnips, broccoli, carrots, sprouts and any other vegetables you can think of. Alternatively, you can chop up some onions, garlic, pepper or mushrooms and roast them with the turkey. Whichever vegetables you choose loading up the Christmas table with them is sure to stop people overindulging on turkey and stuffing. Why not try a glaze of honey, mustard and herbs to add flavour to

simple steamed vegetables – an easy, delicious, low fat and healthy addition to the table. USE SMALLER PLATES: If you provide people with smaller plates they cannot fit as much food on them. Therefore, the chances of you and your guests overeating are significantly reduced. PUT WATER ON THE TABLE: Water does not contain any calories and is essential for keeping your body properly hydrated. Put a couple of jugs of chilled water on the table and keep them topped up throughout the Christmas meal. This will ensure that you always have a glass of water at hand should you desire it. KEEP FIZZY DRINKS AWAY FROM THE TABLE: Fizzy drinks are often full of sugar and chemicals. However, you are likely to have some guests who want to drink them. As a compromise keep them away from the main dinner table. There will still be available to people who want to drink them but by keeping them away from the table you and your guests will be less likely to keep the glasses topped up with these calorie heavy drinks. MAKE FRUIT PART OF YOUR DESSERT: Dessert is often the most calorie laden part of the Christmas meal with cheesecakes, chocolate logs, Christmas pudding, mince pies and more. However, if you use fruit then the dessert can be a much lighter part of your Christmas dinner. Blueberries and natural yoghurt are a simple, tasty, sweet treat which take minutes to prepare. Alternatively, you could make a fruit salad for all your guests. Chop up a some apple, banana, oranges, pineapple mango and mix it with some fresh fruit juice in a large bowl. Put this bowl in the fridge overnight. You don’t have to force these fruit based desserts on your guests but making them one of the choices at the table is a step in the right direction.

Ultimately, Have Fun! Remember Christmas is

one day and Christmas Dinner is just one meal. It’s your Christmas too so try to relax and have fun, laugh and be merry. If you do find others around you difficult then try to rise above the situation. If things don’t go to plan try not to worry too much, instead laugh about them and make them into fun memories that you can talk about during Christmases to come. “Remember that time Mum set fire to the sprouts!”

Have a great, stress-free and healthy Christmas break – see you next year!

Gluten-free?...

A gluten-free diet may be a fashionable way to stay healthy or even maybe lose weight, but for some people – those with gluten intolerance – it is the only way to control their bodies’ allergic reaction to gluten. Dieticians do not know the exact cause of gluten intolerance but it is often hereditary. People with gluten intolerance need to give their diet a complete overhaul and eliminate gluten from their diet. Gluten is a protein found in wheat, barley, oats and rye, and is commonly used as a stabiliser, thickener and emulsifier in processed foods. Being on a glutenfree diet means removing a number of unhealthy and processed foods from your diet; foods such as breads, pastas, pizzas, cookies and desserts such as cakes, pies and muffins.

What you need to know about gluten intolerance Gluten intolerance, also known as coeliac disease, is a digestive disorder in which the inner lining of the small intestine is destroyed by the body’s allergic reaction to foods containing gluten. Symptoms of gluten intolerance Gluten intolerance symptoms vary from mild to serious. They include: l Diarrhoea l Abdominal pain l Bloating and gas l Weight loss l Stomach upset l Fatigue and weakness l Slow growth rate (children) l Foul-smelling stools Some symptoms such as abdominal pain, gas and bloating may be caused by digestive problems and not gluten intolerance, so it is important to get this condition properly diagnosed. 36 | DECEMBER 2015

Treatment for gluten intolerance There is no cure for gluten intolerance or coeliac disease. A gluten-free diet is the only effective treatment. Go for a blood test to determine if you are really allergic to gluten before going on a gluten-free diet. Consult a dietitian who will carry out a nutritional assessment and then devise a proper meal plan suitable for you.

Complications of gluten intolerance People suffering from gluten intolerance or coeliac disease may suffer from malnutrition and small bowel ulcers. They also have a higher risk of developing gastrointestinal cancers. Look out for signs of anaemia, recurring weight loss and abdominal pain as these may suggest complications of the disease. 8 diet tips to manage gluten intolerance l Avoid all products containing wheat, rye and barley (e.g. breads, pastas). l Avoid baked foods (e.g. pies, cakes, cookies). l Read food labels carefully and avoid foods with dextrin, emulsifiers, stabilisers, corn starch, malt and modified wheat starch. l Check all seasonings, thickeners and marinades for gluten-containing additives. l Avoid processed foods and meats (e.g. luncheon meats, salad dressings, vegetarian mock meats, soup stocks). l Eat more whole grains – rice, white rice, millet, buckwheat, , and beans, seeds and nuts. l Increase your daily intake of fruits and vegetables. l Choose fresh meats, fish, poultry, eggs, and dairy products.

At the Greyhound, we have a number of dishes suitable for a Gluten-free diet including gluten free Yorkshire puddings & gravy, gluten free beer battered fish and many of our dishes can be adapted to accommodate your needs. We have also just been awarded 5 stars from EHO.

Out with the old BY ANDREW SOUTHWOOD

E

very house has its breaking point – an optimum capacity. I’m talking about the moment at which you become aware you have far too much ‘stuff’. The thing is it all happens very slowly and subtly, creeping up on you, like a cat stalking its prey. Then one day, you look around you, and rather like that startled mouse, out of the blue you realise you have a problem. The most important part is that you have identified there is an issue. Sometimes, in all honesty, this may be 10 years too late. But, for many of us it’s about once a year we get this moment of clarity, and we have time to act before it becomes too much of an overwhelming job. Where to start? Well, the kids have to stay (so I am told…), so working back from that, it’s the mountains of

54 | DECEMBER 2015

clothes they seem to come with that is my primary target. Selling unwanted, but good condition, items can be surprisingly hard. Put them on a local online selling site for 50p each and people email you asking “what sort of condition are they in?”, and “would you take 40p?” and so on. It’s hardly worth the effort, but I am eager for them to get reused. Sometimes we find an outlet for a whole bag of clothes, maybe a niece or nephew, or a friend from the playground with a younger sibling. When this happens I become a little bit over excited, struggling to stop myself from delivering a dozen bin bags full of stuff to them the next day. Sadly, the majority has gone in the clothes bags that sit in the blue wheelie bins. This collection service is for people like me. People who dislike the other ‘charitable’

collection bags which come through the door. You know, the ones that say in almost unreadable small print “…we promise to give 5p for every 100 tons of clothes collected to…”. To be honest, if it’s out of my house/garage, and being reused in some way then I’m happy. The strange thing is we are incredibly restrained in terms of what we buy. I would consider ourselves at the very bottom of the scale, with the majority of parents buying (or being given) far more clothes than us. I just hate to think what their clothes mountain looks like. I just hope those trusses in the loft are able to handle the tonnage. So, the clear out is going well. Two things are for certain. We definitely do not need any small baby clothes… ever again, and this time next year we’ll have another room full of kids clothes to dispose of.

Get the look.. It’s often the most unlikely of trend you end up liking and wearing the most – and for us this season, that trend is definitely the poncho. They first cropped up about 10 years ago – high neck and heavily fringed – but their resurgence can be largely thanked to a stylish makeover. The current poncho incarnation has much more of a cape feel to it and has been a quick hit with the street style set. This is a must have for your winter wardrobe...

Hi!

Eek, I’m so excited! By the time you’re reading this I am probably 11! Happy birthday to me, hope you are counting down for Christmas. Oh, but before I go, hello Mrs Harvey!

molly xx

RABBITS

Another thing to get me super excited is that we have just got rabbits! One is called ‘Rascal’ and the other is called ‘Jeffery’. They are both black little fluff balls, that were born in July. Their breed is Netherland Dwarf so they should stay quite small. Already we can see that Jeffery is going to be the bigger out of the two. The reason Rascal is called that is because he used to escape out of his hutch, and the reason Jeffery got his name is simply because my brother thinks

COCA-COLA TRUCK

he looks like a Jeffery! Even though we have only had them a short time, we can see their personalities emerging. Rascal loves his cuddles and is more happier being picked up out of the hutch but is also quite a curious bunny and likes to explore new places. Jeffery loves his food and is the first to try anything new to eat. He also enjoys cuddles but isn’t so keen on being picked up. I love watching them hop around and they always come back to me for cuddles and attention! Now what to buy them for Christmas?!?!

PANTO

I don’t really know much about the Coca-Cola truck and I don’t really drink coke but one thing I do know is that when I see the Coca-Cola truck advert I know that Christmas is just around the corner. This year on Thursday 10th of December, I am heading to the Arc after school to see the real truck. Maybe see you there!

Every year in December I go to the panto with my family and the lovely Proctors, it is a little family tradition! In previous years I’ve seen Cinderella and Rapunzel but this year the Theatre Royal in Bury is showing Jack and the Bean Stalk. We always have a good laugh and give our names to the people so that we get a shout out in the interval. Better get my Christmas jumper ready! DECEMBER 2015 | 61

garden confidential BY PAUL CLARKE

PAULS PLANT OF THE MONTH

Winter Beauty Honeysuckle What to do in your garden in December

Winter Beauty’ is a good choice if you want a winter flowering honeysuckle, with fragrant white flowers that appear in late winter and early spring. It makes an attractive spreading deciduous shrub that will fill the garden with its rich scent. They tolerate shade, but they flower best in full sun. It can also be trained against a wall. Easy to maintain and features thousands of tiny blooms which will last from winter to spring. If you know someone who has one then take a cutting in the summer. Ideal for use to fill a gap in the border in a cottage garden or as a hedge.

Happy Christmas to all gardeners. Perhaps you have a relative who is a gardener in your family. There are many welcome gifts for a gardener and here are a few tips to consider. • A thermal hat really helps to keep the warmth in

when working outside.

• It is worth looking at buying a range of gloves to

include the thin insulated gloves and to wear over the top the pvc hardwearing gloves. The latter not only help protect your hands when dealing with thorns but also the material keeps your hands dry especially useful in wet winter weather.

St Edmundsbury Life Saving Club St Edmundsbury Life Saving Club has been teaching water safety, first-aid, resuscitation and water rescue skills in Bury for over 25 years. The club runs school term times at Bury Leisure Centre from 6-8pm on a Sunday night. Volunteers train members from 8 years upwards in national awards from the Royal Life Saving Society which is celebrating 125 years of teaching these vital skills! The club’s simple aim is to prevent the loss of life through drowning and asphyxiation. This is achieved through teaching the necessary skills to cope with situations where drowning and asphyxiation might occur. Our classes include the Rookie Lifeguard programme aimed at 8-13 year olds. Members train having fun practising swimming and lifesaving skills which teach them how to keep safe and what to do in an emergency, both in and out of the water. They work towards national badges and certificates. Older members work through the Survive & Save Programme training towards Bronze, Silver & Gold awards across core elements, open water and sport with first-aid and resuscitation skills along the way.

Competition Success

Club Training

The club has an annual club camp, competitions, where members have competed at national championships.

THE HATEFUL EIGHT Director Quentin Tarantino

tbc

Starring Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Walton Goggins, Demian Bichir, Tim Roth, Michael Madsen, Bruce Dern Eight unsavoury travellers are holed up during a snowstorm in Quentin Tarantino’s brilliantly tense western. A blizzard engulfs a Wyoming mountainside stagecoach way station not long after the end of the American Civil War. Seeking shelter, bounty hunter John Ruth (Kurt Russell) and his valuable fugitive Daisy Domergue (Jennifer Jason Leigh) arrive with former Union soldier Major Marquis Warren (Samuel L. Jackson) and southern renegade Chris Mannix (Walton Goggins). Inside, they find Mexican caretaker Bob (Demian Bichir), hangman Oswaldo Mobray (Tim Roth), cow-puncher Joe Gage (Michael Madsen) and Confederate General Sanford Smithers (Bruce Dern). As tensions rise among the gnarly, guntoting Old West octet, the question arises: who’s going to make it out alive? Bristling with menace and loaded with characteristically smart, quotable dialogue, Django Unchained director Quentin Tarantino’s eighth film is a claustrophobic firecracker of a western, boasting a fantastic A-list cast. It also features the great Ennio Morricone’s first western score in more than 30 years.

WHAT’S ON

THE LADY IN THE VAN

12A

Director Nicolas Hytner Starring Alex Jennings, Frances de la Tour, Jim Broadbent, Maggie Smith, Roger Allam Dame Maggie Smith stars as an eccentric homeless woman who befriends a famous playwright in this heartfelt true-life tale. In the early 1970s, playwright Alan Bennett befriended an elderly homeless woman named Mary Shepherd. In an act of typical kindness, Bennett let the eccentric Shepherd live in a caravan on his driveway, in what he believed would be a short-term arrangement. Fifteen years later, she was still there. The Lady in the Van tells the remarkable true-life story of Alan Bennett and Mary Shepherd, about their unusual and sometime stormy relationship and about her eccentric run-ins with authority. The Queen actor Alex Jennings plays Alan Bennett, with Dame Maggie Smith, in a role far away from her turn as Violet Crawley the Dowager Countess of Grantham in Downton Abbey, as the bedraggled Mary Shepherd.

STEVE JOBS Director Danny Boyle

15

Starring Michael Fassbender, Kate Winslet, Seth Rogen, Jeff Daniels Discover the man behind the image in this candid biopic about computer genius Steve Jobs. From the pen of Aaron Sorkin (The West Wing, A Few Good Men, The Social Network) comes this riveting and revealing movie about one of the late 20th century’s most towering figures - Apple supremo Steve Jobs. Taking place at three key stages of Jobs’ life, from the unveiling of the first Mac in 1984, through his split from Apple in 1988 to his return in 1998 and the release of the revolutionary iMac, the film provides an intimate study of a man whose private life was often as turbulent as his professional life. Michael Fassbender (X-Men: Days of Future Past) takes on the lead role as Steve Jobs, heading up a starry cast that includes Kate Winslet, Seth Rogen and Jeff Daniels. And in the director’s chair is Slumdog Millionaire Oscar winner Danny Boyle.

We encourage people to bring their own crafts – knitting, sewing, paper crafting, crochet etc. Likeminded people can come along to share crafting skills or learn new ones and at the end of a session feel a sense of achievement. Some have never crafted until they came along and are keen to learn, so keep returning. Most of the crafts made are donated back to support the group.
