EDITOR’S LETTER

WELCOME TO THE

AUGUST

ISSUE

Hello and welcome to our August issue. If July wasn’t hot enough, we are in the middle of a heatwave as I write this! Thankfully we recently acquired an air conditioning unit for the office, it is our saviour at the moment as the office creeps up to scorchio degrees by midday! Let’s hope the sun stays out for the rest of August, because the school holidays are upon us! If the kid’s are already bored, go to pages 60-61 where we have found a few activities going on, but have a look online too, there will be plenty more, a lot of them are free too! If you want to enjoy the sun in the garden we have some summer recipes on pages 38, 40 and 42. Off on holiday? Swimsuits to suit all shapes and sizes this month on our fashion pages 80-81 and if you are not sure what sunglasses to wear, go to pages 26-27 for advice on the best protection for your eyes. Enjoy the summer everyone!

W hat’s been happening at... HARDWICK Primary School Hectic barely describes the run up to the end of the school year with so much happening and a very sad farewell to our Year 6 pupils who begin the journey to secondary education with their transition days. To say they went out in style is an understatement with arguably one of the best UKS2 productions to grace the Hardwick stage. The children acted, narrated and sang their hearts out in memorable performances of Edith’s Wartime Scrapbook, simply fantastic and many congratulations to the children and especially the dedicated staff. After that for our super Year 6’s it was off to Planet Laser for a well-deserved leaver’s party! We have watched them grow into responsible young people ready to embark on the next stage of their education we miss them all and wish them the very best for the future. The rest of the school also had the transition to their new classes after end-of-year reports and parent consultations. Our Reception children had a great day out at Wandlebury Country Park exploring the grounds and finding lots of bugs!

10 | AUGUST 2019

Our loyal FoHPS have been their usual busy fund-raising stalwarts with cake sales, selling ice creams, end of year Bertie Bassett discos and after shows hamper raffles, we are as always so very grateful for their enthusiastic support. Finally we must congratulate more sporting successes from our children, especially our Year 3/4 gymnastic team that came 3rd in the Eastern Regional Gymnastic Finals, a fantastic achievement competing against some much bigger schools. The football tournament season ended with some fine performances from our year 5 & 6 teams at home and the Year 2 “Harriers” superbly winning the Guildhall Feoffment tournament and one of the biggest trophies in school sport! Hardwick is blessed with having one of the best organised football clubs thanks to manager Derek Smith, some 34 years involvement with the school, and dedicated voluntary coaches across the age groups. Have a most relaxing and fulfilling summer break and thank you for your support over the past school year. Daryl Jones – Head Teacher Andy Abbott – Vice Chairman of Governors

Painted Lady Butterflies

A

s summer rolls in and the weather heats up considerably, it won’t only be the public who take to some fresh air. Many insects and birds, such as Painted Lady Butterflies, migrate to Britain during these warm months. These butterflies do not hibernate but migrate to and from Northern Africa. They are cold-blooded insects, so they travel a lot in order to be about the same temperature as the air around them. Painted Ladies have pale buffy-orange background colours to the upper wings, with the forewings as black tips marked with white spots. The smaller wings (hindwings) have rows of black spots, with the undersides as pale with blue spots. Adults drink nectar from flowers and have a range of habitats, such as hanging baskets, hedges, and window boxes, and love dry, open spaces. The last ‘painted lady summer’ was in 2008 when about 11 million Painted

Lady Butterflies were recorded in the UK. This year unusually high numbers have flown to the UK, so you may already have seen some and keep a look out for more! Butterfly Conservation is therefore holding a butterfly count, and is urging us all to participate in August. To take part, spend 15 minutes outside, ideally in a sunny spot (if you can find one!), counting and recording any butterflies that you see, then submit your sightings online at https://www. bigbutterflycount.org/ or via the app on that website. There’s also a free identification chart you can print or download, at that website. Though you’ll have to keep a watchful eye is you want to see some painted ladies, they can fly up to 30mph!

Dear reader,

This month we have an event you won’t want to miss out on seeing…. our much awaited Soapbox Challenge! Taking place down Mount Road on 31st August, we have really upped the stakes this year and made the course much more challenging. The teams will have to zoom down the start ramp, which is being kindly sponsored by Curve Motion, fly over the first jump by Frames Conservatories Direct, manoeuver around Rawlinson’s Chicane, which we have made much tighter this year, and, if your soapboxes have made it that far, cross our finish line, kindly sponsored by Sealey Tools. Sealey’s competed in last year’s race and won the best soapbox for their inspired car jack creation. They also actively fundraised and recently popped along to ward F7 to present the ward manager, Claire Starie, and her staff with the ECG machine they contributed to. There are five trophies up for grabs this year, each donated by Aford Awards and sponsored by local companies including the Infusions Group, Accountability Plus, Ashton Legal and Compass Recruitment. As well as the overall champions’ trophy,

my

teams will compete for the best soapbox, best presentation, fastest time and best fundraiser trophies. Spectating is free but we hope you will make a small donation to watch your crazy friends launch themselves down a hill in a glorified go-kart, as all the money we raise is going to our Butterfly Fund which supports our palliative care patients. Another new addition to this year’s event is Soapbox City which is based at the Priory School and is being sponsored by Coastline Graphics. The school will be selling refreshments and this is where the soapboxes will be housed until it’s their turn to tackle the course. Finally, we must say a big thank you to our main event sponsors Treatt and HS Direct as without them the event just wouldn’t go ahead. If you are interested in volunteering at what promises to be an absolutely incredible day then please get in contact by emailing fundraising@ wsh.nhs.uk, calling on 01284 713466 or check out the website for all the details at www.mywishcharity.co.uk.

10 Sunglasses Myths

that Could Ruin Your Eyes

We’re all for cool shades that make a style statement, but the main job of sunglasses is to protect against sun damage. Don’t let these common misconceptions about sunglasses undermine your eyes. Myth: Pricier shades are better

A higher price tag doesn’t necessarily mean the sunglasses will provide better protection against UVA and UVB rays. Sunglasses, even at lower price points, can offer good protection. Before you even check the price tag, read the label. If they say they block 100 percent of both UVA and UVB rays, it’s a go. If not, move on.

Myth: Size doesn’t matter As long as you cover your eyeballs, you’re safe, right? Not exactly. Sunglasses with bigger lenses are better. The pupils will naturally dilate when someone wears sunglasses to allow more light into the eyes. If the frame is not large enough, the UV light will get around the edges of the lens and have an easier time entering the eye when the pupil is dilated.

Myth: Don’t worry about the scratches Scratches on your lenses won’t harm your vision, but they can tire out your eyes as you strain to see through a defective lens.

Myth: It’s important to choose the right colour lens The colour of the lens you choose—grey or brown—is a personal preference and has no impact other than that.

Myth: All sunglasses cut glare Unfortunately not. Only polarized lenses block glare. All light that bounces or reflects off a surface becomes polarized if it vibrates at a specific angle. A polarized lens is mounted at the proper angle in the frame to block this reflected light. The more reflective the surface, the more polarized light reaches our eye. Most common sources of reflective surfaces are water, windows, and even other cars, and to a lesser extent cement and asphalt. Remember that polarized light is different than UV light. Polarized lenses cut glare and improve contrast, but all good sun lenses protect against UV.

Myth: Sunglasses can expire In terms of UV protection—no. No studies prove a reduction in the level of UV protection with wear and time. Scratches, on the other hand, which accumulate inevitably the longer you wear them—or keep them rattling around in your glove compartment, will lower the quality of your vision.

Myth: Cheap sunglasses are fine Actually, even the cheapest shades block most of the harmful UV radiation, unfortunately, that’s not the problem. Poor quality plastic lenses distort our vision and can cause headaches, try to always use prescription quality lenses even if the power is 0.”

Myth: Darker lenses are more protective It seems like a darker shade would block more light, but apparently that’s not the case. The level of UV protection is not a factor of tint, it’s determined by either a lens treatment or the type of plastic polymer of the lens.

Myth: All shades protect against UVA/UVB light Isn’t that the whole point? You might think. But not all sunglasses have UV protection—some are strictly fashion accessories. When purchasing sunglasses, always look for a label, sticker, or tag indicating UV protection.

Myth: You need shades only in summer If you’ve ever been blinded by rays glinting off freshly powdered ski slopes, you know that sunlight in winter is just as strong as in summer. It’s a common misconception that there’s less UV damage to the eyes during the colder months, and it’s not true, in winter, UV rays can reflect off snow and into the eyes. Sunglasses are key to eye protection, regardless of weather. 26 | AUGUST 2019

When you are feeling down or experience low mood this can affect your everyday life. It can also affect your energy and joy in your life which usually makes you happy. Lack of sleep can magnify negative feelings too and everything seems such an effort. There are ways of lifting your mood and calming overwhelming thoughts and feelings e.g. a little activity can make a difference, having goals and marking small achievements, getting out in the daylight, rewarding yourself.

Positively Crafty In June vellum flowers were achieved in the session, as you can see they have turned out very colourful. The steps were relatively easy to follow from the stamping out to the embossing and cutting out. Then the colour finally bringing the layering together. In the August session these flowers will be set in place either on a card or in a picture framed box.

Being out in the sunshine helps our feelings of wellbeing, improves mood and reduces pain and stiffness by warming the body’s muscles. Talking helps break the cycle of negative thoughts that can lead to negative actions. Talking through your feelings with someone you trust or meet up with friends can help take your mind off things. Positive interaction really stimulates. Give yourself a boost by taking small steps and doing what you think is right for you. We are all individuals and what works for one may not for another. Bring a little joy back into your day by coming along to meet others in similar circumstances. CPSG is a very welcoming and friendly group and support is what we are all about. We look forward to seeing you there! 28 | AUGUST 2019

If you would like to have a go at crafting please drop into one of our sessions and see what we are all about on the first Thursday of each month from 1pm to 4pm. The next CPSG meeting is on Thursday 15th August from 2pm-4pm. Both meetings are held in the small hall of Southgate Community Centre and refreshments are included too.

The Hearing Care Centre, which has 26 centres across Suffolk and Norfolk including one locally at Mount Farm GP Surgery, Bury St Edmunds, was named in the top 4 businesses for Customer Care at the Suffolk Business Awards, a ceremony held annually by the East Anglian Daily Times. This too marks the 11th consecutive year that The Hearing Care Centre has been selected as a finalist or winner of the prestigious award. The Customer Care award celebrates companies that show how they go above and beyond

customer expectations, ensuring everything that the company does has the customer at its core. The judges commented: “The Hearing Care Centre delivers ethical, gold standard private, independent hearing care and rehabilitation at 26 centres across Suffolk and Norfolk - the largest provider of independent hearing care in East Anglia. Through the Hearing Care Centre’s statement of values it promises to put patients’ needs first and to always try to exceed expectations. Understanding the needs of customers and the local communities served is key to its success, resulting in financial growth in a very challenging retail sector.”

Upon receiving the news, Managing Director Karen Finch expressed “I set my team the goal of achieving the very best customer satisfaction possible, which we achieve through our unique personal approach to our patients coupled with the very highest quality of hearing care service. “It is no mean feat to have achieved customer service recognition eleven years in a row. It shows the level of consistency that my team offers our patients and that the customer is at the forefront of everything that we do. I am extremely proud of my team.” The glitzy awards ceremony was held at Kesgrave Hall in Ipswich and hosted by comedian, writer and actor Tom Allen.

The 19th hole

Welcome back to the 19th Hole, well July was a treat golf wise both playing and watching. The return of warmer temperatures made playing golf in July perfect, and then being able to watch the best players in the world battle it out around a sunning Royal Portrush GC in The Open Championship.

The scenes on Saturday afternoon when one of Ireland’s own Shane Lowry finished shooting a course record 63 was incredible. The crowd were going crazy with excitement that they could have an Irish winning on home soil. Then when you thought the crowd couldn’t get any better or louder Shane Lowry battled through tough weather on the final day to win his first major championship! 2019 Champion Golfer of the Year – Shane Lowry I am sure the party lasted long into the night!!

Tour stops to watch out for in August PGA TOUR Wyndham Championship THE NORTHERN TRUST BMW Championship TOUR Championship EUROPEAN TOUR D+D Real Czech Masters Scandinavian Invitation Omega European Masters

Pre Shot Routine The first and best way to help you focus on the shot in hand is to have a pre shot routine. Having this process in your game will allow you to treat any shot within your round the same, so weather it’s a straight forward chip shot or a putt to win a competition your pre shot routine will help to make sure there are no outside distractions that could hinder your performance. Plan YOUR pre shot routine Everyone is different in what they like to do and think about before hitting each shot, below I have highlighted a few areas that might help you plan YOUR best pre shot routine. Thinking & Planning In this stage you have to considering a lot of different things: • Lie • Club Selection • Externals Factors (wind direction etc…)

Coaches Corner – First Tee Nerves Are you a person that gets a little nervous on the first tee or when you have an important shot to hit during a round? I know I am; every competition I have first tee nerves. There are ways to deal with these and this month we will talk about how good planning and routine can help rid you of those nerves.

34 | AUGUST 2019

• If your going to miss where is best? “Golf is a game of misses. He who misses best wins.” – Ben Hogan • Type of shot • TARGET Make a clear plan at this stage so that from this point on you are 100% committed to the shot you have planned.


HEALTH && BEAUTY FOOD DRINK

Physical Rehearsals In this stage its not just a case of making perfect practice swings. Its all about getting a feel for the shot you are about to play and the type of movement you are going to need to produce to get the outcome you have planned.

SEE THE SHOT During these rehearsals try and picture the shot in your minds eye. Make this image as detailed as possible, the more elements of the shot you can clearly see the better your rehearsals will be.

GO TIME! You have planned the shot out and made your rehearsals so now its time to TRUST the plan and yourself. Take a couple deep breaths in through your nose and slowly exhale through your mouth or nose. This will ease the tension in your body getting you ready to perform. If any negative thoughts creep in at this stage, start over. At this point you could introduce a trigger. This could be verbal like “Commit” depending on what works best for you. From this point on be confident and align yourself to your target and make a committed swing knowing you have done all you can. This process makes it harder for negative thoughts to come into your mind, and I am not saying that it will work every shot, but it might make the difference when you really need it. I hope this allows you to plan YOUR routine and improve. If you need any help with this or any other aspect of your game, then please contact me on the details below. 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.

MEETING HELD ON 3 JULY 2019

FULL PAGE FLIGHT LAB

This month we all enjoyed a very amusing and informative talk by Rory O’Brien on the history of the Theatre Royal. Later this month on 18 July a group of our ladies are taking a tour of the Theatre. On Sunday 7 July we provided refreshments for the ladies taking part in the Women on Wheels charity bike ride starting from Nowton Park. Many of our ladies donated delicious savouries and cakes to fortify the riders.

There will be no official meeting at the Moreton Hall Community Centre in August. Hopefully if the weather is kind to us we will be taking our picnics to Nowton Park and taking a stroll around the park, meeting there at 6.30 pm. On 4 September we will be meeting as usual at 7.30 pm in the Community Centre for a talk on ‘It’s a Bats Life’ by Libby Ranzetta, together with lots of friendly chat and refreshments. We welcome new members – do come along and check us out – your first meeting is free. ANNETTE BROWN, SECRETARY EMAIL: NETTY248BROWN@ BTINTERNET.COM

EASY STRAWBERRY ICE Children can enjoy getting stuck in to making and eating this summery treat. Add your own toppings for extra fun!

Ingredients:

1 x 400g punnet strawberries 1 x 250g tub mascarpone ½ x 397g can condensed milk cones and sprinkles, to serve

Method:

Pull the green hulls out of the strawberries. If they are still quite hard, cut them in half or quarters with a table knife. Tip them into a flat-bottomed dish. Use a potato masher to squash the strawberries as much as you can. Tip into a bowl. Ask your grown-up helper to give you a hand if you need to. Add the mascarpone and mash this in – don’t worry if it is a bit lumpy. Add the condensed milk and mix everything together. Don’t worry if the mix is streaky. Spoon the mixture into a metal or plastic box and put it in the freezer. Wait until the next day or at least 6 hours before scooping into bowls or cones. Decorate how you like.

HOME + LIFESTYLE

HOLIDAYS AND DIVORCE There is a song that goes “Love and marriage go together like a horse and carriage”, but divorce and holidays? They may not be quite such happy bedfellows, but my experience as a Divorce Lawyer over more years than I care to remember, tells me that the holiday season can be a very big strain for a couple who are, shall we say, past the honeymoon period. Over the years I have had many clients come to see me both before, and after a family summer holiday. Clients who have come before, have expressed concern about the impending two week stint with their other half. I have been asked to explain what the options are for divorce if the holiday proved to be a disaster. Clients who have approached me after a holiday, have clearly experienced what in their view was the proverbial straw to break the camel’s back. The fact of the matter is that we all lead incredibly busy lives. This means that the amount of time we actually spend with our partners is often less than the time that we spend with those we work beside. Weekends are taken up with chores and running around after children.

44 | AUGUST 2019

A couple will often go through a period of rediscovering each other, when a two week summer holiday is taken with the children. That rediscovery process may go well, equally it may not. During the school summer break, there is a lot more for the parents to do because the children are not in school. Where both parents work, juggling looking after the children and working full-time can be very challenging. These are all stressors. Adding into the mix the possibility of very hot weather or very wet weather, and you may have a toxic cocktail. So, although divorce and holidays does not sound as tuneful as love and marriage going together like a horse and carriage, in my daily practice, it is a sad fact of life. For more information about this or any other family matter, please contact Elizabeth Hodder eah@gross.co.uk.

Rougham Control Tower Aviation Museum

Echoes of the Past Last month I touched on how the Museum is a memorial to the airmen and personnel whom we remember from the 1939-45 conflict. Again, this month we reflect on another departure from the very few remaining hero’s, who continue to be in our thoughts. Blue Skies Sir, we are forever grateful. It is also very difficult when we have a loss closer to home, with the passing of a local supporter of the Museum. We don’t just loose a supporter; we loose a friend, a member of our ‘family’ but also a very valued and knowledgeable historian. In both cases we send our sincere condolences and our thoughts and prayers are with you. WE WILL NEVER FORGET. On a lighter note - Sunday August 4th our ‘Echoes of the Past’ event (10.00 to 16.00hrs). Reenactments, Stalls, Burgers, Military Vehicles …. and more. Please join us on our main fund raising day in our calendar. We fund the museum and projects solely by subscription and donation. ‘Every Little Helps’ and this day’s activity is a great way 50 | AUGUST 2019

of supporting us and keeping us going. We look forward to you being with us, please help to make this a very special day. OUR OTHER DIARY DATES ARE: 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. More details in our next edition, (September). 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. That’s all for this month – See You At ECHOES !!

Sybil Andrews Academy

Suffolk students benefit from Chinese visit Student language leaders from Sybil Andrews Academy have welcomed a cohort of Chinese pupils as part of a special cultural visit. The group of students from the Tongi University Experimental School in Shanghai spent last week at the Bury St Edmunds secondary school. A programme of activities included studying alongside the student leaders, visiting local primary schools and even joining up with the awardwinning cheerleader squad at the school. The tables were also reversed when the Chinese students taught Mandarin to some of Sybil Andrews’ Year 7 students. 52 | AUGUST 2019

Teacher Vita Minichiello-Price, who helped organise the visit, said: “This was a wonderful opportunity for our students to integrate themselves with another culture and educational experience. “We are proud to have 48 language leaders within our school whose role is to promote language learning both within Sybil Andrews and via our links with our local primary schools. They, and the entire school, have benefitted from the visit. “We would like to thank all the staff and students from Tongi University Experimental School and also Rob Walden, from the Real World Education Group, for helping to facilitate the visit.”

Shaping the future growth of the town centre A planning application for a key strategic site in Bury St Edmunds town centre, is to be submitted with the next few weeks. West Suffolk Council is to submit an application for 17-18 Cornhill – the former Post Office site – in early August. The application for two ground floor business units with 12 flats above, subject to approval, will deliver on some of the key aspirations of the Bury St Edmunds Town Centre Masterplan. St Andrews Street South is an important street running between the arc and the historic town centre. It was identified in the masterplan as in need of major improvements to help the old and the new parts of the town centre feel more coherent as one place. The Council proposes creating a dramatic new front. Not only will this include a new shop front curving into Market Thoroughfare, it is also designed to reinvigorate the street, encouraging other landowners and investors to see the potential for what can be achieved there. It has long been the Council’s ambition to improve Market Thoroughfare, enabling people to see from either end to the parts Artist’s impression

of the town that lie beyond, encouraging greater movement between the historic and the new – and it was a public ambition echoed in the masterplan. Market Thoroughfare will be widened by more than 50 percent taking it from 2.4m wide to 3.8m. This is being achieved by the Council giving over ground floor commercial floor space while the design will provide visitors with a gradual visual blend from the modern arc to the historic Cornhill. The Cornhill front, which lies with the Conservation area will be enhanced through the removal of a step to improve access and the creation of a second arch which will not only acknowledge the historic Bell Arcade but also serve the wider Market Thoroughfare. The planning application itself has been purposefully delayed while the Council explored how to deliver affordable housing as part of the scheme. To deliver affordable housing the Council would need a registered provider to take on the ownership and management of the flats. It has spoken to the major registered providers of affordable homes in West Suffolk but none of them would take on the ownership and management of these flats due to the high service charges. That in turn would mean they wouldn’t be affordable for people seeking affordable housing. The Council’s own planning policy means that developments over 10 homes or more need to deliver 30 percent affordable housing on-site or in exceptional circumstances the equivalent value off-site.

AUGUST’S 5 TIPS ABOUT HAIRDRYERS & SHAMPOO A

mazing how time flies, it is now 3 years since we started giving our monthly tips. Something we have not yet explored is personal grooming, so this month, we thought we’d have a quick look at hairdryers and hair washing.

1

2

Do you need to blast hair with a hairdryer?

If buying new, get an energy efficient hairdryer

Wet hair can be uncomfortable but why not rub it dry with a towel? Using an 1800W hairdryer 4 times a week for 10 minutes can cost you £9 per year = 29kg of CO2.

It has the same effect as one that uses more energy, it still dries your hair!! A 1000 watt hairdryer, compared to an 1800 watt dryer can save you £4 per year = 13kg of CO2.

3

4

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

5

Try and use the lowest setting on your hairdryer

When hair is 80% dry, use the cool shot button

This is crazy, you don’t have to use shampoo!

This could be a difference of 800W each time you dry your hair. If you use the hairdryer 4 times a week for a year, this could save you £4 per year = 13kg of CO2.

to set the final look of your hair style. The cool shot completes the drying and protects against overheating, saving energy (and a little money!).

Many people now only use water to wash their hair. At first your hair may be a bit greasy but then it will find it’s own balance. You’ll also save money and use fewer chemicals and plastic.

This months’ make is all about making the most of the summer sunshine! Make a jellyfish suncatcher!

YOU WILL NEED:

black paper/card, tissue paper, a pencil, sticky back clear plastic, scissors and an assortment of ribbons. n Draw a pencil line in the shape of a jellyfish body on your black card about the size of your hand. n Cut out the shape on the outside and then cut the middle out leaving a border. n Peel off the back of the sticky back plastic and stick your black outline shape onto it. n Cut the tissue paper into small squares and stick onto the design like a mosaic. Try not to overlap too much as you want the light to shine through the coloured paper. n Place another square of sticky back plastic on the other side to seal the design. n Cut around the outside shape. n Cut strips or ribbon and Sellotape in place on reverse of design. n Stick on a window so the light reflects the design.

What other fish can you make? Send me your pictures on my facebook page. I would love to see your crafty makes. AUGUST 2019 | 59

Garden Confidential by Tom Clarke

What to do in your garden in August.. Finally a good summer and watering plants has become a daily necessity. A little project I am planning to do is to add an extra water butt beneath a drain pipe. If you haven’t got one why not consider getting a water butt to save rain water. There are two main ways to fit a water butt. The easiest way is to sever a plastic down pipe with a hacksaw and place the butt directly underneath it. Or cut a notch out of the pipe and fit a rain trap and connecting pipe – this will transport water to your butt and allows you to put it in the most convenient place. 62 | AUGUST 2019

Flower Garden O If you do nothing else this is a month for deadheading flowers regularly O Lavender can start to look a bit untidy once the flowers have faded. Use a pair of shears to give it a good trim back. O If you are going away on holiday move your indoor plants from sunny window sills on to trays of wet gravel O Many hedges will also benefit from a light trim to keep them tidy to avoid a lot of work in the autumn when growing starts to slow. O Deadhead your lilies. It is best to cut off the faded blooms right away so that the plant puts all of its energy into the bulb below the ground instead of seed production. After flowering has finished if

you carefully dig up your lilies you may find some bulblets besides the parent bulb. if you plant these in pots in a years time you will have extra lilies.

General Maintenance O Trim hedges in August O Fill up your bird baths O Keep your ponds topped up and make sure they are safe for children.

Vegetable and Fruit Garden O Snip off the tops of tomatoes plants once you have 3 or 4 trusses of fruit developed. Also continue to remove any side shoots ( except for bush tomatoes) O Lift and dry onions and shallots O This is the time to start

harvesting early potatoes, lettuce, beetroot, marrows , pumpkins ,runner beans apples and pears O With the warm weather watering in particular is best done in the evening or the morning as are routine jobs such as weeding, hoeing and dead heading spent blooms O Now that any fruit has been picked you can cut back gooseberries, redcurrant and blackcurrant bushes. Also cut down to the ground any spent raspberry canes O You can cut strawberry runners from their parent plants O Provide support for any heavily laden fruit trees. Branches can break or take over a pathway unless you tie in supports. O You can prevent ants and other crawling insects from climbing your fruit trees by using sticky glue bands.

This months poem... “August rushes by like desert rainfall, A flood of frenzied upheaval, Expected, But still catching me unprepared. Like a matchflame Bursting on the scene, Heat and haze of crimson sunsets. Like a dream Of moon and dark barely recalled, A moment, Shadows caught in a blink. Like a quick kiss; One wishes for more But it suddenly turns to leave, Dragging summer away.” - Elizabeth Maua Taylor,

THE BIG TIDY UP L

ast month a discussion at work led me to request, and subsequently receive, some community litter picking equipment. I thought that maybe I could persuade my children to help out over the summer holiday. Kill half an hour by exploring the woods and clear up some rubbish while we are at it? The grabbers, hanging up in the porch were an immediate hit. Forget Lego, jigsaws, and Playmobil. Evidently litter pickers are far more exciting. Finally, after several days of asking, it was agreed that they could go litter picking. Clearly some ground rules were laid out regarding what to pick up, and what to leave. The fact the grabbers are for picking up rubbish, not for pinching your sister’s bum etc. These were widely agreed upon and with my wife as supervisor, off they went.

68 | AUGUST 2019

BY ANDREW SOUTHWOOD

Upon return, some hour or so later, they were beaming. A few hours later and the request for another litter pick was tabled. The novelty had not worn off yet. We managed to hold off for a couple more days but eventually buckled to pressure and several more litter picks followed in the coming weeks. I succeeded in persuading the girls to litter pick near the play area, in the hope that they would stop and play for a bit. This worked to a point, but after 10 minutes on the swings, they wanted to move on and find more rubbish. They are pretty proficient with the grabbers now and take a slightly geeky interest in the demographic of the waste as it is collected. For example, they correctly identified cigarette butts as the most common form of litter, along with

plastic sweet wrappers and drinks bottles making up a large proportion of the collection. Some more unlikely additions, like unopened food and items of clothing is also a topic of conversation. As the summer holidays are upon us, the occurrences of our child led family litter picks will I’m sure increase. Our end of Moreton Hall will be cleaner than the virgin soils of an unexplored Pacific island. We are already receiving requests from the kids to expand our clean up area. I have pointed out that this is not our actual job and there are people who get paid to do it, but it falls on deaf ears. I am waiting for the inevitable request to take our litter picking stuff on holiday. I just hope Derbyshire has its fair share of rubbish to clear up, or I’m not quite sure what we are going to do all week!

A Local Ecumenical Partnership between the Church Of England, United Reformed Church and Baptists Together

WE ARE YOUR LOCAL CHURCH BASED IN SOUTHGATE COMMUNITY CENTRE

Jonah and the Whale! We’ve recently spent time at our church weekend by the sea looking at the book of Jonah – as well as having a good time! You might know the story, it’s sometimes called “Jonah and the Whale” and can be read as a simple story for children. However, we have come to realise that there is so much more to it. God sends Jonah to the city of Nineveh (poignantly the modern Iraq city of Mosul) to tell the people to stop living wicked lives. Jonah doesn’t want to do this and instead runs away and gets on a boat travelling in the opposite direction. The boat is rocked by a massive storm and when the sailors realise this is Jonah’s fault - remember he is trying to run away from God - they throw him overboard. Just as Jonah thinks he is going to drown God sends a large fish which swallows him whole. Inside the fish, Jonah prays for God to forgive him, the fish takes him to Nineveh and spews him up on the beach. Jonah now does what he is told, and the people of Nineveh change their behaviour. Well that’s the simple version, but it’s not exactly what we read in the Bible. The question we need to ask is “why did Jonah run away?” Was he simply afraid? Maybe, but he gives another answer. Jonah knew God’s character - that He is, “a gracious and compassionate God, slow to anger and abounding in love, a God who relents from sending calamity.” God’s love is for everyone, even the evil Ninevites who were the violent enemies of Jonah’s people the Israelites. Jonah had judged them and wanted to condemn them. Yet God, despite their behaviour, loved them and wanted to give them a chance to live a different life. Christians believe that God’s love extends to everyone and he gives us all a chance to have a new life and new relationship with Him, through the death and resurrection of Jesus. Just as Jonah came to realise that God’s merciful love reaches out to everyone, Jesus taught his followers, and all Christians through the ages, that the most important commandment in the whole of scripture is to love God and other people, and this include our enemies.

Cast Holliday Grainger, Alia Shawkat

Director Tony Leondis, John Rice

Laura and Tyler are two girls who like to party drink, drugs and general debauchery infuse their days while their careers and lives remain on hold. As they drift into their thirties, reality begins to bite, but Laura and Tyler will not be tamed so easily. When aspiring writer Laura (Holliday Grainger) meets the devilishly handsome musician Jim, sparks fly. As their relationship intensifies, Laura’s friendship with Tyler (Alia Shawkat) comes under pressure; Tyler wants to keep the party going, living a life without limitation as Laura begins to settle into her relationship with Jim. But nothing is ever that simple, and Laura begins to struggle with a more strait-laced approach to life. As the fabric of the friendship between Laura and Tyler begins to fray, the bond between these two siren soulmates starts to implode. Finding themselves at a crossroads as their old lives start to slip away, both begin to encounter new opportunities that might carry them beyond their past hedonism. A celebration of female friendship and the choices we make, ANIMALS is an honest, unconventional and very funny snapshot of two very modern women.

LEGALLY BLONDE THE MUSICAL (Community Productions)

OMIGOD, you guys! A fabulously fun international awardwinning musical based on the adored movie, Legally Blonde the Musical explodes onto Theatre Royal’s stage this August, with the brightest and boldest local talent from Suffolk Young People’s Theatre. Legally Blonde the Musical will take you from the sorority house to the halls of justice following the transformation of Elle Woods as she tackles stereotypes, snobbery and scandal in pursuit of her dreams. This action-packed musical features a large ensemble and is bursting with memorable songs and dynamic dances. A delightfully camp, energetic and cheesy guilty pleasure for all to enjoy. Sublimely tongue-in-cheek with equal parts hilarious and heart-warming, this musical is so much fun it should be illegal!

Friday 23rd August - Saturday 7th September

PRIDE & PREJUDICE (Drama) Following the success of last year’s summer production of Goodnight Mister Tom, another wonderful classic is brought to life on stage; Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice. Celebrating the theatre’s 200th Anniversary year, the cast features professional actors who will star alongside Theatre Royal Bury St Edmunds’ Young Company. The only thing in the world that matters to Mrs Bennet is marrying all five of her daughters to rich, landed gentlemen. As the Bennet sisters haplessly search for love in Jane Austen’s ultimate romantic comedy, it is Mr Darcy who unwittingly finds his match.
