thank you! Thank you to everyone who supported Patrick at his Chinese New Year celebrations at The Apex last month. It was a great night and raised over £5000 for two excellent local charities, My WiSH (the West Suffolk Hospital Charity) and The Samaritans.

Abbots FUN DAY Gate Road

On bank holiday Monday May 1st, Southgate Community Partnership will be holding its fourth annual community fun day. If you haven’t been before, put the date in the diary – it’s a great day out with all sorts of attractions from rides, bouncy castles and family games to a football tournament, a may pole, live music and food and drink. If you are a charity or group and would like to have a stall or get involved, it’s not too late, just speak to Jackie in the Community Centre office. The fun takes place on the Hardwick Primary School field from 11am on the day – we hope to see you there!

Adoption

Finally some great news for residents of Abbots Gate who we have been supporting to help get the road adopted by Suffolk County Council since the developers went into administration. This has been a very frustrating and lengthy process due to the legal complexities and processes but finally there is a light at the end of the tunnel and completion works are due to start this month. Sarah has asked SCC to write to all residents to explain the situation and letters should be arriving soon. MARCH 2017 | 11

How to get the

Nude Make-up Look

22 | MARCH 2017


HEALTH & BEAUTY

Gone are the days of heavily winged-out eyeliner and strong 80s contouring that were oh-so-hot in 2009. This spring, the trend in makeup is all about looking au naturale. Read on to find out how you can use makeup to look flawless while keeping it subtle.

Face

Step 1: Start by prepping your skin with an oil-free moisturiser. This will give a bit of slip so your makeup goes on smoother. Step 2: For those who are blessed with issue-free skin, apply a tinted moisturiser to even out your skin tone. If you need more coverage, use a liquid foundation with a dewy finish. Step 3: Apply your foundation or tinted moisturiser with a sponge. Pay extra attention to the edges to make sure there are no visible lines. Remember, real skin is never matte so finish by only powdering areas that get oily throughout the day. Step 4: To get the most natural healthy glow, opt for a cream blush. Using your fingers, apply three dots on the apples of your cheeks and blend towards the temples. Step 5: Spritz your face with a facial mist to tone down any cakiness and to keep your skin looking dewy and fresh.

Eyes

Step 1: Natural eyebrows never look penciled in. So ditch your eyebrow pencil and use a powder that matches with your hair colour instead. Apply with an angled brush and blend with a clean mascara wand or brow brush to soften the look. Step 2: Skip eyeliner and really work the mascara wand into the roots of your lashes to make them appear fuller. If you must wear eyeliner, keep the line thin and stick to softer colours like brown or grey. Alternatively, try lining the inner rims of your eyes with a cake eyeliner. To do this, lift up your eyelid gently and push the eyeliner into the rim of your lids with a flat brush. Step 3: Apply one to two coats of mascara and run a lash comb through your lashes to get rid of clumps. Don’t have one handy? Swiping your lashes gently with your fingers works just as well. Step 4: If you want more definition, add a pair of thin, long fake lashes. The trick is to use the right glue and wait until the glue turns tacky before you apply.

Lips

Step 1: Exfoliate your lips with an old toothbrush and Vaseline to get rid of nasty dead skin. Step 2: Forget lip liner. Instead use a tinted lip balm for a subtle pop of colour and shine.

Pauls jobs for the month Flower Garden

n Hardy annuals such as marigolds and poppies can be sown if the soil is warm n Sow sweet peas either in pots or directly outside n Prune bush roses by one third, back to healthy leaf buds to tidy their growth after the winter. n Tidy up Cordylines by pulling away faded lower leaves n If like me you bought pots of daffodils for show inside the home don’t just throw them away after flowering. Instead plant them in your garden and allow the leaves to die down naturally. n Hydrangeas - any old flower heads should be cut off just above a strong new bud n Hardy Fuchsia - prune dead stems right back to the ground

General Maintenance n So you no longer have a brown bin instead start a compost heap

Pauls

for all your kitchen and garden waste. n Using your compost make sure that your borders are given a thick layer of mulch around existing plants to keep moisture in, condition the soil and help cut down on weeding later in the season. n It’s the start of another season of lawn mowing but start with the blades on a high setting. n If the weather is suitable, apply a lawn weed and feed preparation towards the end of the month. n Give any plant pots a refresh. With small pots remove the plant, add some fresh compost and re-pot. For larger pots, just scrape off the top layer and add fresh compost material to the top.

Vegetable Garden With a steady rise in vegetable prices and shortages due to poor growing conditions it might just be the year to have a go at growing your own. n potatoes in late March. You will need to chit your potatoes by standing them upright in a warm and light spot. Egg boxes are ideal. Once growth known as eyes begins they are ready to be planted n Choose the sunniest spot for planting onion sets 4” to 6” apart and 12” between rows. n Plant broad beans, peas, parsnips and carrots

Fruit Garden n Final chance this month to prune your apple and pear trees before they start to bloom. Aim to remove any dead branches congested or crossing stems

The Chadacre Challenge 2nd April 2017

The Chadacre Challenge is new, mixed ability, all terrain running event through the beautiful Suffolk countryside that aims to raise money for a new pre-school building for the village of Lawshall. Catering for serious runners who want to pit their wits against an all-terrain 10k course as well as those who feel that 3k is challenge is enough, the event has something for all the family. The 10k run for those aged 15 and over is a demanding all-terrain course winding through the countryside paths and fields. There will be medals awarded to all finishers and a trophy for the top three male and female runners. Each participant in the 10k run will be provided with a chip to officially clock their time. The Chadacre Challenge also includes a 3k fun run, similar to the very popular park run. This is a chance for children to run with parents, parents to run with babies in buggies (robust ones only) or toddlers on their shoulders!

There will be prizes for fancy dress and a shiny medal for everyone involved. The Chadacre Estate, a beautiful private 522 acre farming estate in the Suffolk countryside south of Bury St Edmunds , will be opening its gates to the public, by kind invitation of Mr and Mrs Lamprell. For those spectating, there will be tea, cakes, face painting and fun to be had on the sidelines. Lawshall Pre-school are aiming to raise in excess of £65,000 for a new building to accommodate young children aged 2 1/5 to 4 years and help then get the best possible start in life. The new building will create an Early Years Centre of Excellence within the village of Lawshall in the grounds of the Outstanding All Saints’ Primary School.

Southgate Church is getting involved in ‘Who Cares?’ - a project involving churches across Suffolk asking one simple question this summer. What hurts the most? Or, to

put it another way, what about life do you find hardest to handle? How would you answer? Doubtless something leapt to mind. Someone once said that the universal language of humanity is not love – it’s pain. We may have never experienced real love, but we all understand what it is to be hurt. And what do we do when that pain really bites? A couple of years ago the BBC reported that 1 in 3 of all adults would say they have no-one to turn to in a crisis.

What if, when it feels like the world is against you (and it’s winning), there is hope for all the hurt? What if Jesus, the heart of the Christian message, really could bring the kind of hope that will anchor you, whatever storms are shaking your world? Whilst we would never claim to have all the answers, the church is certainly committed to responding to what we hear. If you’re asking, ‘Who Cares?, we want you to know that the church cares, and, more importantly, we
