EDITOR’S LETTER

WELCOME TO THE

SEPTEMBER

ISSUE

Hello and welcome to the September issue! Wow, what a lovely summer we have had! August was definitely a lot drier than last year! But it’s back to school now, and as per usual, I will be doing the last minute school supplies shopping! It was so much easier when they were little and didn’t have an opinion on what’s cool and what’s not! Then we can relax and enjoy the last bit of sunshine before the nights start to draw in. Maybe it’s time for some home decorating? – see page 60 for some bedroom decor ideas. On page 54 our Autumn fashion feature provides some inspiration for us now we are putting away the sandals and summer clothes. Our crossword prize this month on page 46 is a fantastic meal for two at the Beyton Bear, so make sure you enter! Until October, enjoy this months issue.

Autumn Skin Care Yes! You can finally feel it. The early morning breeze is beginning to chill ever so slightly. Autumn will soon make its grand entrance. But with cooling temperatures comes dry skin and chapped lips. Before your skin starts to feel the changing temperature, prepare your beauty regime with these autumn skin care essentials. Hydrate!

Cheap as chips, organic beauty tip number one: drink a lot of water! Just because you aren’t sweating all the time doesn’t mean you should stop carrying your trusty water bottle. Water will keep you (and all your parts) hydrated and luminous.

Help heal sun-drenched skin

If you’ve spent a lot of time in the sun, try a fast-acting dark spot treatment serum to help fade and prevent dark spots, age spots, and freckles. The serum helps fade dark spots, reduces hyper-pigmentation, and brightens and evens skin tone. There are many good products on the market to try.

Don’t get burned

Just because it’s cold outside doesn’t mean you can forget the SPF protection! Buy sunscreen that protects skin from UVB and UVA rays.

Make a natural moisturiser

Start with an oily, buttery base: almond, sesame, jojoba, olive, and coconut oils work well, as do cocoa and shea butters. Add aloe, roses, oatmeal, honey, ginger, etc. Many herbs and foods have amazing, skin benefiting qualities.

The right colour

Autumn is the ideal time to paint your lips a deep burgundy. Try out some deeper shades, be daring this season!

Fading fast

The Summer holidays seem so far away now and with that your tan that took all those months of sitting in the garden sunbathing to build up is fading away, and the pasty look is appearing, but don’t despair, just get the good old fake tan out and apply every 3-4 days for your skin to glow throughout this cooler season. Who needs the sun anyway?

Other Autumn beauty tips:

Exfoliate dry, flaky skin one to three times a week with fruits and sugar, or fruits and oatmeal. Use a hydrating mask (made from natural ingredients, such as banana and chocolate, avocado, etc.) once a week. Use a cleanser that moisturises skin, rather than one that rids skin of its natural oils. Buy lots and lots of organic olive oil. Place olive oil on problem skin areas (think feet, elbows and knees).

SOUTHGATE Commun SOS – Save our Southgate!

No, not our Community Centre nor Church, both of which are in good heart and shape, but our name. Local government bureaucrats are trying to change the name of our area from Southgate to Hardwick Heath – all as part of the merger between St Edmundsbury and Forest Heath councils into the new West Suffolk. Now Hardwick Heath is a very nice park and we are very lucky to have it, but as name for our whole area, it is not a very good description. Why the need for change? Southgate has been our description for many years and is a good description. Let’s keep it that way. Contact our local councillors: Richard Rout, Patrick Chung, Sarah Stamp, and Ann Williamson and ask them to leave things well alone!

Free hearing checks at Mount Farm GP Surgery

to help those with hearing loss Ten million people in the UK - one in six of us - have some degree of hearing loss. It’s surprisingly tricky to spot gradual hearing loss as our brains are very good at compensating, so we’re not even aware of how much we’ve lost until things are quite far advanced. The good news is that there are things you can do to about it. The bad news is that there are potentially serious consequences if you choose to ignore hearing loss, including an increased risk of dementia. Local hearing care specialist The Hearing Care Centre offers award winning hearing care services from 25 centres across East Anglia. This year they are celebrating their 20th year in business and they hope to continue to raise awareness about the prevalence of hearing loss, its effect on everyday life and the potential dangers of leaving hearing loss untreated.

Audiologist Karen Finch and her team will be holding a free ‘Hearing Care Centre Open Day’ at their local hearing clinic at Mount Farm GP Surgery between 9am and 5pm on Wednesday 12th September 2018. During the event they will be providing complimentary hearing assessments (usually £20), along with the very best professional advice about your hearing test results and discussions about possible solutions that could help improve your hearing. All services are available by appointment only.

To book your appointment call The Hearing Care Centre on 01473 230330 or visit www. hearingcarecentre.co.uk for more information.

*Please note that The Hearing Care Centre is in no way connected to the NHS. 16 | SEPTEMBER 2018

Bats and Woodland Belts in Moreton Hall

S

Appledown Drive is a good spot to look, and also try the hedges around the vicinity of Abbots Green school.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, the light - tolerant common pipistrelle bats were recorded feeding for flying insects, with lots of records per night as they flew up and down past the detector. Mosquitoes, moths, beetles and flies were all greedily munched on the wing by these bats. this bat can be seen fliyinh, just as its gets dark, in many places on Moreton Hall. There’s often one on the cycle path by Sebert Wood school, the train field at

The woodland belt is far more valuable for bats, however. It was used as a movement corridor by other species of bats, using it to navigate through the area from their roosts or feeding grounds to other feeding grounds. Noctules and serotines flew high and fast above the woodland, catching big beeltews as they flew. Brown longeared bats, fairly common but very hard to detect, flew along the wood picking up insects from tree leaves. There was also one call, not a clearly recorded one, which might have been from one of Britain’s rarest bats, the barbastelle. They’ve been recorded on Moreton Hall once or twice before, and now we know one of their commuting routes.

mall areas of woodland in Moreton Hall can make a big difference to all sorts of wildlife, from birds to mammals, butterflies and frogs. They can also act as movement corridors for many species. To see how bats used the woodland belts, a bat detector was placed alongside the woodland belt which divides the industrial estate of Bedingfeld Road from houses on the other side. It recorded for several days in June, July and August.

Dear reader,

World War one was one of the deadliest conflicts in the history of the human race, where over 17 million people died and there were around 37 million casualties. The Great War lasted from 1914 until 1918 and this year is the centenary of the ending of the conflict. Back in June we told you all about our upcoming World War 1 trail. Well, it has now been launched and is open for you to take part in all around the town of Bury St Edmunds. The trail consists of eighteen pieces created by local artists and sculptors which represent their interpretation of incidents or objects linked to the Great War whether in the area of conflict or life away from the front line. They will be on display until November 11 , Armistice Day, and will then be auctioned off, so if you have your eye on a particular piece please get in touch with our team for more information. One stunning piece that is proudly on display just outside the Abbey Gardens is Mike Well’s 7ft wooden Victoria Cross. It has been lovingly created by Mike and one of his employees, Jon Andrews, at Mike’s business A J Joinery. The pair have spent countless hours making the 5ft medal that sits on wooden ribbon which is covered with material. This isn’t the first time Mike has supported us either, after suffering from a heart attack two years ago, he has fundraised for our Every Heart Matters appeal and our cardiac rehab department. This really is a breath taking piece so make sure you head down to have a look. The Trail is raising money for our Every Heart Matters appeal which aims to raise

my

charity Supporting West Suffolk Hospital Registered Charity No. 1049223

£500,000 to fund a new diagnostics unit which will complete the new cardiac centre coming to West Suffolk Hospital. With heart disease being the single biggest killer in the UK, and worldwide and close to 15,000 diagnostic tests being performed each year at West Suffolk Hospital, around 450 of those being on children, this centre really can’t come soon enough. A dedicated cardiac centre will offer faster diagnosis and treatment, the best possible environment and the best possible experience for patients. It will also include a new cardiac catheterisation suite and will enable patients to undergo procedures not yet currently available at the hospital. The trail really is incredible and definitely worth taking part in. You can pick up your information map with a suggested donation of fifty pence from the following places; The Apex, Moyses Hall Museum and the Cathedral Tourism Office. They are also available at The Guildhall, Town Council Offices (weekdays only), LP, Beautiful Beers, Casa, Pilgrims Kitchen (Cathedral), Abbey Gardens cafe and the Greene King Cafe. We hope you have an enjoyable time finding the pieces across the town centre, maybe discover a part of the town or a business you aren’t familiar with and at the same time find out a bit more about this time in our history.

The 19th hole -

Welcome back to the 19th hole, August saw us crown our last major champion of the year and the rains have also returned after an amazing sunning spell across the UK.

This month 19th Hole will not be in its normal format, as there is one main focus in September 2018. WELCOME TO RYDER CUP 2018 This event is ranked as the one of biggest and best sporting events on the planet, with thousands of people flocking to see the worlds best players battle it out. This year I am lucky enough to be one of the people that will be travelling to France to watch the action unfold, to say I am excited is an understatement. HERE IS HOW IT ALL WORKS TEAM SELECTION The European Team will comprise the first 4 players from the European Points List, followed by the leading 4 players from the World Points List and completed by 4 wild cards. The US Team will be made up from the top 8 in the points rankings with 4 captain’s picks RYDER CUP FORMAT Each of the first two days includes one four-match session of four-ball and one fourmatch session of foursomes. The final day is reserved for 12 singles matches. RYDER CUP SCORING Each match is worth one point, with matches ending in a draw worth ½ point to each side. The first team to reach 14 ½ points wins the Ryder Cup. If the matches end in a 14-14 draw, the team holding the Ryder Cup retains it. THE VENUE The venue for this years Ryder Cup is LE GOLF NATIONAL GOLF COURSE. The Albatros course at Le Golf National is an 18-hole golf course in France, near Paris. Designed by architects Hubert Chesneau and Robert Von Hagge, in collaboration with Pierre Thevenin, it is located in Saint-Quentinen-Yvelines, southwest of central Paris So the stage is set for the 2018 RYDER CUP – BRING ON THE NOISE!!!

Coaches Corner – THREE GREAT PUTTING DRILLS So this month we have THREE great drills that will help all aspects of your putting. This area as we all know is so important to good scoring. This month’s drills are brought to you by YouTube channel PGA LIFE 365, for more on these drills and lots more content please visit their YouTube page. This drill will assist you with STRIKE, one of the most over looked aspect of putting. Striking your putts from the center of the clubface will allow you to get better distance control. Drill) Make a gate with two tee pegs either end of your putter (as shown in the image), start wider than needed and as you become more confident close the gap up. STRIKE PUTTS BETTER!! Moving on now from STRIKE we will now look at START POINT, this drill allows you to focus on the line on which you want your putt to roll down. Drill) Again make a gate either side of your intended start line, at first make this gate wide and as you become more confident close the gate up. START PUTTS ON YOUR LINE!! The last area is distance control; this is a simple drill that you can set up before teeing off that will allow to adjust to the pace of the greens for that day. Drill) Set up THREE distances with some tee pegs, its up to you what distances you choose. We have set up 10ft, 20ft and 30ft. Being able to consistently judge these distances will give you a great base on the course to judge putts that are longer or shorter. If you are still struggling with your putting after this, or any other part of your game then I would be pleased to assist you in enjoying this game more. 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.

CPSG’s members took to the waters for a day out river cruising along the broads from Brundall to Wroxham on a modern, comfortable, carpeted and centrally heated boat with wheelchair access and disabled facilities. Glorious weather for a trip, taking in lovely scenery and a lot of wildlife. The water was still and peaceful even though the waterways were busy with other boats passing and their occupants cheerily waving. The atmosphere on board was very friendly and everyone got on well together, lots of laughs that made some good memories. Long tables were set up for the picnic and refreshments were served by the crew, all volunteers. Lifts onto the boat and the facilities were all excellent. All needs for a variety of health conditions were well met. The mini bus for the journey was upgraded to a coach with air conditioning and the driver very helpful, considerate and accommodating to all members needs. For a first day trip out for members all went well with minimal fuss and they all look forward to planning the next one. The time is soon upon us once again to hold our Annual General Meeting on Thursday 20th September at 2pm. Visitors are welcome to join us and if anyone feels they have time to spare to help us out during the year, to become involved and actively participate we look forward to meeting you. We fully understand what commitment and responsibility involve however being part of something and getting something back in return, certainly makes up for it. Positively Crafty hold their next session on Thursday 6th September from 1pm-4pm and will be focusing on completing their Tea Light Jars. Life quite often stands in the way of time for ourselves. Crafting brings moments of calm in that disarray and an outlet to being able to cope. By being open to new things and using your imagination you can open up a new world of creativity and a kaleidoscope of colour and pattern to enhance your wellbeing. You can also surprise yourself that you can do something that you thought you could not. Join us and get crafty—you’ll never know unless you try! Autumn is gradually making itself known and this can bring on a change of mood so if you are having moments of gloom why not come along and join us, we will soon give you something to smile about!

Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies

Non-vegans will be hard pressed to notice the difference between these and their favourite choc chip biscuits

Ingredients:

Method:

125g cold coconut oil 100g golden caster sugar 150g light muscavdo sugar 125ml coconut milk 1 tsp vanilla extract 275g plain flour 1 tsp baking powder Âź tsp bicarb 200g vegan chocolate chips or vegan chocolate, chopped into small chunks

Tip the coconut oil and sugars into a bowl and whisk until completely combined, then whisk in the coconut milk and vanilla. Tip the flour, baking powder, bicarb and a good pinch of flaky sea salt into the mix to make a thick batter, then fold through the chocolate chips. Chill the batter for at least 1hr. Can be made 2 days ahead.

34 | SEPTEMBER 2018

Heat the oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Line a couple of baking sheets with baking parchment, then scoop or roll plum-sized balls of the dough and place them on the baking sheets about 2cm apart. Flatten ever so slightly and sprinkle with a bit more flaky salt if you want. Cook on the middle shelf for 12-15 mins, turning the tray once, until the cookies have spread and are golden but still soft in the middle. Leave to cool slightly, then lift the cookies onto a cooling rack while you bake another batch. Will keep in a biscuit jar for up to 3 days.

FOOD & DRINK

Tomato, Red Wine & Chorizo Risotto Topped with Parmesan & fresh parsley Ingredients:

Method:

Olive oil 2 shallots 1 clove of garlic 80g higher-welfare chorizo ½ a bunch of fresh flat-leaf parsley , (15g) 750ml–1 litre of organic chicken or vegetable stock 1 x 400 g tin of quality plum tomatoes 300g risotto rice 200ml red wine 50g Parmesan cheese , plus extra to serve

Peel and finely chop the shallots and garlic, finely chop the chorizo, then pick and finely chop the parsley leaves, finely chopping the stalks. Drizzle 2 tablespoons of olive oil into a wide, shallow pan. Add the parsley stalks, shallot, garlic and chorizo to the heated oil and cook over a mediumhigh heat for about 5 minutes, or until the shallot is softened and the chorizo is beginning to crisp. In another pan, heat the stock with the tinned tomatoes. Add the rice to the shallot mixture and stir to coat the grains. Cook over a high heat for 1 to 2 minutes, or until the grains have cracked and are slightly translucent at the tips, then pour in the red wine. Stir well and cook until almost all the wine has evaporated. Add the hot stock and tomato mixture, ladle by ladle, stirring well with each addition, and only adding more when the previous ladle is almost fully absorbed. You may not need all of the mixture, or you may need to top it up with a little water. The rice should be tender but with a little bite in the middle. When it’s cooked, add one last ladle of liquid. Finely grate the Parmesan, then add to the pan with some seasoning. Stir well, take off the heat and cover. Leave for 5 minutes or so before stirring again, tasting and adjusting the seasoning, if necessary. Serve topped with extra grated Parmesan and the chopped parsley leaves.

The TOP 10 Healthie

FOOD & DRINK

Loading up your plate with fresh produce is a super way to improve your health, maintain your weight and reduce your risk of disease. Most fruits and vegetables are an asset to your diet, but some make better choices than others. Choose ones with high antioxidant, vitamin and mineral content over watery options that may take up space in a salad, but lack the rich nutrition your body craves.

SWEET POTATO

Sweet potatoes are a nutritional superstar, especially when compared to regular white potatoes. They’re rich in beta-carotene, a powerful antioxidant that protects your body from inflammatory free radicals. Plus, they offer more than 700 percent of the daily value of vitamin A per serving and are a good source of vitamins C and B6. Sweet potatoes also help regulate blood sugar levels. To benefit the most from the nutrients, skip the sweet potato fries and chips or the marshmallow-laden holiday casseroles. Choose plain baked sweet potatoes or wedges grilled with a smattering of heart-healthy olive oil.

CITRUS

Citrus fruits, particularly oranges and grapefruit, contain lots of vitamin C -an antioxidant -- and potassium, which plays a significant role in your body’s chemical balance and metabolism. Opt for the whole fruit, rather than juice, which makes you miss out on the high fibre content of these fruits. Fibre helps keep you feeling satisfied and helps your digestive tract run smoothly.

AVOCADO

Avocados are a fruit, not a vegatable, and the only one that offers substantial amounts of heart-healthy unsaturated fat. You need this good fat for healthy skin and hair, as well as for nutrient absorption of vitamins A, D, E and K. The fruit itself offers more than 20 vitamins and minerals, including potassium, folate, vitamin C and vitamin K. Avocados also provide ample fibre, which helps keep you regular.

40 | SEPTEMBER 2018


FOOD & DRINK

est Fruits and Vegetables BLUEBERRIES

It is said that blueberries as a fruit has one of the highest antioxidant content and capacities available. The berries also have anti-cancer properties, which make them an essential part of any balanced diet.

WATERCRESS

Watercress topped a list of 47 fruits and vegetables in terms of nutrient density. It’s rife with 17 specific nutrients considered to be important for lowering your risk of heart disease and cancer. Add watercress to sandwiches or toss it with other delicate lettuce into a salad.

SPINACH

Spinach is also ranked highly as a vegetable high in nutrients. Spinach is also a good source of iron. Increase iron absorption by consuming foods high in vitamin C alongside the spinach. For example, toss orange segments or strawberry slices into a spinach salad.

ASPARAGUS

Asparagus has long been used as an herbal treatment for a variety of conditions. These long stalks have proven themselves to be potent antidotes to a hangover, and can reduce toxicity of your liver. Steam them or roast them with sea salt and olive oil to reap their tasty benefits..

TOMATOES

Tomatoes, provide you with ample amounts of a powerful antioxidant known as lycopene. The lycopene is best absorbed when combined with fat, so salad dressing on raw tomatoes or a little olive oil in spaghetti sauce is helpful. This compound protects your DNA and cell structures from damage from free radicals and research suggests it may reduce your risk of stroke, as well as prostate and other cancers,

LETTUCE

Skip the iceberg and load up your salads with nutrient-dense varieties, such as green or red leaf and romaine. They’re low in calories, flavourful and full of fibre.

Happy Holidays BY ANDREW SOUTHWOOD

Family holidays. A time to

have fun with your nearest and dearest, enjoying quality time together, making beautiful memories. Either that or just survive, returning without throttling each other? A ‘holiday’ means something slightly different for all of us. Broadly speaking I think I can split them into three very generic groups. • First off you have - ‘theme parks’. These holidays are all about the excitement for the kids, living out their wildest dreams. What could be better? • Secondly there are ‘beach’. These usually involve a lot of relaxation for the adults and crazy fun kids clubs for the little ones. Everyone is happy. • Last but not least, you have - ‘farm stays’. These are not relaxing and do not involve any theme parks or bespoke children’s activities. You make your own ‘fun’. Can you guess which one

42 | SEPTEMBER 2018

I do? Yes, so our week in Lincolnshire was based out of a barn conversion, in a field, up a long track. Self catering cottage rental is not the lottery it once was, where your entire booking was done on the basis of a postage stamp size picture and a 20 word description in a brochure. However, we deliberately didn’t tell the kids too much about the place, so the initial excitement of looking around the barn was still huge. Beds allocated and basic provisions unpacked and we were all set for the week. Aside from obtaining a free charge for the car, my primary aim of the week was to hammer the hell out of the National Trust membership card. Visiting so many historic houses and castles in a week that they all blurred into one is a sign that this mission was a success. The kids dutifully did the trails and activity sheets at all of them, with surprisingly few objections. Clearly the play

areas and ice creams were their highlights, but I can forgive them that. Other highs (for the kids at least) in our week included picking fruit, dancing in the rain, finding a composting toilet in the woods, and making bread out of flour bought at the water mill down the road. Oh, and lets not forget the wasp avoiding picnic in the car, they always love that. We (the adults) also enjoyed all of the above, with perhaps the trek around Lincoln castle ramparts in the drizzle and my near death experience during a 20 mile training run, the other key accomplishments of note during the week. A fantastic week was had. Yet, by the last night we were all looking forward to home. There is nothing quite like getting back to your own bed after a holiday. Routine. Surely that’s what we all crave isn’t it? Or maybe it’s just me?

VETERINARY NURSING

- a career for you? If you are passionate about working with animals and helping to improve their welfare, a career in veterinary nursing could be for you. C

Well-trained veterinary nursing teams are key to the successful daily running of veterinary practices. The responsibilities of the veterinary nursing team are extremely varied and they are faced with new challenges every day. It is a diverse role that includes working as part of a team, as well as communicating with pet owners and carers. As such, excellent communication skills as well as the ability to work well a part of a team, are vital for a veterinary nurse. At all times the nursing team does what is best for the animals entrusted to their care. They provide 2- hour nursing to hospitalised patients, assist with anaesthesia, operations and postoperative care as well as working in the practice pharmacy and laboratory. In addition, veterinary nursing staff have an important role in giving healthcare advice and demonstrating to owners techniques and methods to improve animal care and welfare. A career in veterinary nursing is physically and emotionally demanding, but at the same time, extremely rewarding. Many nurses say that the most satisfying part of being a veterinary nurse is helping animals to recover either from surgery or an illness and then seeing them reunited with their delighted owners and able to go home well again.

Veterinary nursing is a lifelong career with many options for progression and specialisation. These include equine nursing, theatre nursing, animal training and behaviour, emergency and critical care, medical and surgical nursing as well as management, education and training. Training as a veterinary nurse can also lead on to variety of other careers with animals as well as industry. If you are enthusiastic, caring and a good communicator who enjoys working with animals, a career in veterinary nursing could be for you. Central College of Animal Studies (CCOAS) specialises in courses for veterinary professionals and has centres in Suffolk, Kent and Somerset. Students from Essex, Norfolk and Suffolk attend classes at the Ipswich centre and do their practical training at local veterinary practices. Local practice, Moreton Hall Veterinary Centre, is a CCOAS and RCVS (Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons) authorised veterinary training practice with an excellent reputation and commitment to high standards of care, and a great place to learn the art and science of veterinary nursing.

If you would like further information on training to be a veterinary nurse, please email enquiries@ccoas.org.uk or telephone 01359 243405. 52 | SEPTEMBER 2018

Every month I share a crafty activity to try at home. I’m Michelle and I own the crafty foxes. I run adult and children’s workshops, children’s crafty parties, after school clubs, hen-dos and a wedding/events mobile crafty creche. Check out all my workshops on my website www.thecraftyfoxes.co.uk

This months make is a cheap and cheerful hoopla game You will need 5 empty plastic bottles, 5 x different acrylic paints, spray paint for lids and 4 pipe cleaners 2 of each different colour. • Take off the lids and spray them a nice colour, I used gold • Squirt some paint into the bottle. Once lid has dried put it on tightly and shake bottle to disperse paint everywhere • Do this for all 5 colours • Tip bottle upside down and leave on a rack over newspaper for excess paint to drip out. • Leave to dry • Place some sand or loose stones in base of bottle to weigh it down • Attach 2 pipecleaners together and wrap around a large drinks bottle to get a circle. Wind the alternate colour around. Or use an old bangle. • Set out the bottles stand well back and try and hoopla them!

Garden Confidential

by Paul Clarke

What to do in your garden in September... The long hot summer has left many of our gardens looking parched and many plants and trees shed leaves early giving the appearance of an early Autumn. However with the welcome return of regular rainfall, gardens are now beginning to green up enough for cobwebs to be removed from the lawnmowers.

PL

ABELIA GRANDIFLORA

62 | SEPTEMBER 2018

With its clusters of small, tubular, pastel-coloured flowers that are often fragrant and sepals that are usually red or bronze an Abelia makes a welcome addition to a garden. Ideally you want well-drained soils and place in full sun. An Abelia Grandiflora is hardy in most areas but if you have a more sheltered area put it there. With this in mind it makes a fine wall shrub and the mass of small, fragrant flowers attract bees and butterflies. A little light pruning after flowering will keep it in check but the best time to prune is spring and then you can remove a few of the older stems and tidy up the shrub. If they get very overgrown, they can be pruned hard in spring, but this will reduce flowering for a year.


Pauls jobs for the month Fruit

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

Flower Garden n If you have gaps in your border fill with sedums or chrysanthemums which flower in Autumn n With Spring in mind plant wallflowers now n The middle of September is the very latest date for planting Christmas hyacinth bulbs so that they are in flower for the 25th December n Look out for opportunities to collect seeds from your perennials n Prune your climbing roses this month- remove some of the oldest woody stems and tie in any new shoots that are emerging

Pauls

GARDEN SERVICES

n Most perennials benefit from division every two to three years to maintain health and vigour such as Japanese Anemones n It’s a good time to take hardwood rose cuttings

General Maintenance

Vegetable Garden

n Top up bird baths regularly

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

n Clean out bird feeders and start to replenish with seeds and nuts

n September is a good month for repairing or laying lawn turf. Scarify the lawn and lay lawn seed. Give your lawn a tonic with a fertilizer feed.

n Cut back tree branches and hedges overhanging your garden border n Now is a good time to clean water butts as accumulated debris can pollute the water n If you have Water lilies in your pond you will know they grow vigorously. Keep on top of them by removing leaves regularly before they rot in the water

This months poem... “The morrow was a bright September morn; The earth was beautiful as if newborn; There was nameless splendor everywhere, That wild exhilaration in the air, Which makes the passers in the city street Congratulate each other as they meet.” Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

SEPTEMBER’S 5 FOOD WASTE REDUCTION TIPS W

e are not used to this record breaking summer’s heat or how to deal with it. High temperatures mean more of our food goes off, so this month we give a few ideas to help reduce food waste and keep food bills as low as possible. If you have any other ideas to help save food we would love to hear from you!

1 Many of us don’t store food in the right place To keep food fresh for longer you need to store bread in a cupboard or bread bin, keep fruit in the fridge (but not bananas), and always store potatoes in a cool dark place.

3 Prevent soft fruit or salad leaves from going off Add some sugar and lemon juice to any soft fruit, place in the fridge to keep for another 2 days. Put salad leaves into a sealed container with a sheet of kitchen roll and store in the fridge.

2 Freeze left over wine and pesto for future use A centimetre or two of wine left in the bottle? A half used jar of pesto that you don’t want to go off? Then try freezing them into cubes (in an old ice-cube tray) for later use in cooking.

4 A simple test to check if eggs have gone off

5

Put eggs into a bowl of water, if they sink they’re fine, if they float don’t eat them! Eggs can also be frozen by breaking into a bowl, beating until blended and put in a (date labelled) airtight container.

EcoFrenzy is a not-for-profit organisation founded by Tony Whittingham and Simon Dry. If you have any queries please visit www.ecofrenzy.com/contact-us or email tony@ecofrenzy.com 64 | SEPTEMBER 2018

These ideas can save you £££’s! For more ideas on saving money & the environment visit ecofrenzy.com

What do you do when bananas go brown?

Peel them and pop in the freezer in a bag or container. They are great if you blast them in a blender, especially with cream or ice-cream for a delicious banana pudding.

Rougham Control Tower Aviation Museum Time Flies When I previewed this coming season in March the summer had a few ‘unknowns, especial how our attendance figures would be (and the weather). Our expectations have been surpassed. Attendances on Sundays, Group Events and other appointment visits have boosted figures higher than ever before. Thank you. You have certainly established us as a very popular venue here in Bury St Edmunds. Visitors from near and far have been very welcome. BUT we cannot sit back and presume this will continue! We have to continue looking to the future. YOUR MUSEUM requires YOUR help please. Our focus this year has been towards youth. Encouragingly we have had visit from Scout, Air Cadets and Guiding units, parents also have been bringing their children. All these visits require ‘person power’. Supervision, cake making, serving refreshments, a little light gardening…. and more! Can YOU help us please? With only a few weeks of the season left (Yes TIME FLIES – we will finish in October), we are looking to increase our volunteers – COULD THIS BE YOU?? There are plenty of jobs to do – our list is mounting. In our remaining Sunday openings can you come and see what we do. Talk to us about becoming involved. Learn about our monthly talks. Offer a specific skill you may have. Do you even have some military memorabilia in your loft we can display? As the old saying goes WE NEED YOU!! We really look forward to chatting about any involvement you can bring to us. 68 | SEPTEMBER 2018

WHAT’S ON. Two dates for your diary – The Weekend of Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th September Airfield and Museum ‘Visit By Air’.

Urban Saints Urban Saints Clothing is a new local premium clothing brand. After months of ideas and development of what the brand would represent, it was agreed that it should be based on something local and encapsulate strength and selfbelief. With that in mind, the wolf became a key focus for the design concept. With the brand starting in Bury St. Edmunds, what better symbol to choose than the wolf that, according to legend, was found guarding King Edmunds head and crown after he was shot with arrows and decapitated after refusing to denounce his beliefs. With a strong belief that you can achieve anything if you put your mind to it, we wanted to develop a premium yet affordable line of clothing for people to feel good in and comfortable with.

Granite Transformations

goes from strength to strength Granite Transformations is the company that started with “the top that fits on top”. The owners Steven Leech and Darren Cribb who are the current holders of the prestigious Franchisee of the Year award, have taken their business from strength to strength and now offer so much more. Not only do they do amazing worktops, Splashbacks & flooring in the same amazing materials but now they are offering hand cut glass mosaics, a large range of kitchen Doors which are used for replacements, full kitchen installation and Bedroom wardrobes. There has also been a large increase of Bathroom renovations using the granite sheets. Our products here at Granite Transformations are unique in that our range of surfaces are made from Italian granite, natural quartz or recycled glass. All materials are mixed with a high-grade polymer resin to make them non-porous and heat, scratch and stain resistant. All worktops come with a 10year warranty. The range of

products has something to suit every client, whether they are looking for kitchen worktops, splashbacks, up-stands or flooring. We also offer mosaic glass tiles that are also suitable for bathrooms Granite Transformations announced the opening of their new showroom within Hatfield’s Home Furniture Showroom in Peartree Road, Stanway, Colchester at the end of May 2016 which has proven to be a great success. This was a bigger showroom so they were able to show lots of displays giving customers lots of ideas. After early success with the bigger Colchester showroom Granite Transformations opened a larger showroom in Unit 3 Alstons Court, Leslie Road. Ipswich. IP3 9PL. This was opposite their previous one. The showrooms have been designed differently so depending on what colour scheme you are interested in depends on what showroom they would recommend you go to. Since the doors have opened it has been a huge

success, we must get double the customers now said Darren. Due to the growth of the business we had to move into a bigger unit as our old workshop was too small. We then moved the showroom over and its now over double the size of the old one so we can show much more. It can be very difficult to imagine what your kitchen might look like so seeing it in the showroom really helps our customers With the bigger showrooms we felt we would be perfectly positioned to offer the best possible service and products to our ever-growing list of satisfied customers, both old and new. This has proven to be the case over the last couple of years. I feel that the location and showrooms is a reflection of the quality that our company has to offer to their customers. At the same time, this allows us to seek a wider customer spectrum. Our distinctive products are available for all budgets.

WE ARE YOUR LOCAL CHURCH BASED IN SOUTHGATE COMMUNITY CENTRE. COME ALONG AND JOIN US ON A SUNDAY – WE ALSO HAVE MID WEEK ACTIVITIES FOR PEOPLE OF ALL AGES.

SOUTHGATE CHURCH WEDNESDAY GANG IS ON THE MOVE! Wednesday Gang has been a popular after school club for children age 6 – 9 for more than 36 years. It has been a great privilege to spend time with 100’s of children doing crafts, playing games, telling Bible stories and having fun together. We have decided it is time for a change, so from this September, Wednesday Gang will be taking place in Hardwick Primary School in the form of a lunch time club. This will give more children a chance to access this group, and children who find lunch times in the playground a bit overwhelming, may find it a welcoming place to be, and make friends. We will be starting on Wednesday 12 September. Years 1 and 2 will come at 12.30 until 1pm, and years 3 and 4 will come at 1pm until 1.30. Alison Burgess (the Church’s Family and Community worker) and Doreen Whomes will be leading this club with our existing

Wednesday Gang helpers coming on a rota to help. We are excited about this big change for us and are looking forward to meeting lots of new children in September. We want to take this opportunity to thank all those people who have helped Wednesday Gang over the years and especially Hilary Harrington who started it all those years ago.

Here’s to WEDNESDAY GANG IN SCHOOL!!

THE HOUSE WITH A CLOCK IN ITS WALLS

Director

Eli Roth

In the tradition of Amblin classics where fantastical events occur in the most unexpected places, Jack Black and two-time Academy Award winner Cate Blanchett star in The House with a Clock in Its Walls, from Amblin Entertainment. The magical adventure tells the spine-tingling tale of 10-year-old Lewis (Owen Vaccaro) who goes to live with his uncle in a creaky old house with a mysterious tick-tocking heart. But his new town’s sleepy facade jolts to life with a secret world of warlocks and witches when Lewis accidentally awakens the dead. Based on the beloved children’s classic written by John Bellairs and illustrated by Edward Gorey, The House with a Clock in Its Walls is directed by master frightener Eli Roth and written by Eric Kripke (creator of TV’s Supernatural). Co-starring Kyle MacLachlan, Colleen Camp, Renee Elise Goldsberry, Vanessa Anne Williams and Sunny Suljic, it is produced by Mythology Entertainment’s Brad Fischer (Shutter Island) and James Vanderbilt (Zodiac), as well as Kripke. 84 | SEPTEMBER 2018

AMERICAN ANIMALS 15 Director

THE NUN

Set in ‘70s Kingston and ‘80s Hackney, Yardie centres on the life of a young Jamaican man named D (Aml Ameen), who has never fully recovered from the murder, committed during his childhood, of his older brother Jerry Dread (Everaldo Creary). D grows up under the wing of a Kingston Don and music producer named King Fox (Sheldon Shepherd). Fox dispatches him to London, where he reconnects with his childhood sweetheart, Yvonne (Shantol Jackson), and his daughter who he’s not seen since she was a baby. He also hooks up with a soundclash crew, called High Noon. But before he can be convinced to abandon his life of crime and follow ‘the righteous path’, he encounters the man who shot his brother 10 years earlier, and embarks on a bloody, explosive quest for retribution - a quest which brings him into conflict with vicious London gangster Rico (Stephen Graham).

Bart Layton

The extraordinary and thrilling true story of four friends (Evan Peters, Barry Keoghan, Blake Jenner, and Jared Abrahamson) living an ordinary existence who brazenly attempt to execute one of the most audacious art heists in US history. But not everything is as it seems, and as the daring theft unfolds through each of their perspectives, each of them start to question whether their attempts to inject excitement and purpose into their lives is simply a misguided attempt at achieving the American Dream.

Director Corin Hardy When a young nun at a cloistered abbey in Romania takes her own life, a priest (Demian Bichir) with a haunted past and a novitiate on the threshold of her final vows (Taissa Farmiga) are sent by the Vatican to investigate. Together they uncover the order’s unholy secret. Risking not only their lives but their faith and their very souls, they confront a malevolent force in the form of the same demonic nun that first terrorized audiences in ‘The Conjuring 2,’ as the abbey becomes a horrific battleground between the living and the damned.

FILM REVIEWS THE MEG Reviewed by Cat Dube

PG

I went to watch ‘The Meg’ with my 11 year old son who, weirdly, had recently watched Jaws so was really excited to see it. The film is pretty predictable and follows a format that we have seen many times before... dramatic disaster, in walks ‘rogue’ hero, saves the day and wins the girl with a few jumpy scenes in between!! It is about some marine scientists who are out at sea exploring a previously unknown layer beneath the sea floor and unwittingly release a megalodon which was believed to be extinct. The team then have to figure out a way to stop the ‘monster’ before it terrorises the world. Jason Statham is very good and is also pretty easy on the eye - he suits the leading role of Jonas the ‘rogue hero’ well. If you were to ask my 11 year old to rate the film, it would be an easy 10/10...personally I give it a 6/10. It was entertaining and the effects are good but I won’t be buying the DVD! 6/10

THE SPY WHO DUMPED ME

15

Reviewed by Cat Dube

Don’t let the name of this film put you off...to me, the name suggests some rubbish spoof movie but this is not that! When I saw that Mila Kunis was starring in it, I was more enthused as I have really enjoyed her previous movies! The film is an action comedy which sees the main character, ‘Audrey’ (Mila Kunis), being dumped by her boyfriend, ‘Drew’ (played by Justin Theroux) by text on her birthday. She is understandably upset which leads to her discovering that he is in fact a spy. He is then killed in front of her and her best friend, ‘Morgan’ (played by Kate McKinnon) but not before giving instructions to get his treasured trophy to a contact in Vienna. Audrey and Drew then set off on an adventure through Europe to meet Drew’s contact and give her the trophy. Along the way, they are chased and shot at a number of times by a various terrorists trying to get their hands on the flash drive hidden inside Drew’s 2nd place fantasy football trophy! The real question is - who are the goodies and who are the baddies and who should the pair trust? Kate McKinnon’s character, Morgan, is very funny and the perfect side kick to Audrey. There are plenty of laugh-outloud moments in the film which has a very predictable but pleasing ending. The token hero, Sam, is played by Sebastian Henshaw, providing the love interest which is the cherry on top of the cake! This is a light-hearted, entertaining film that provides a perfect couple of hours of switch off...in my eyes, exactly what going to the cinema is all about!! 10/10

Ickworth

Building the roots of

At Ickworth this autumn we are celebrating our history of wood on the estate; how we use it and what is has helped build. From Theodora, 4th Marchioness of Bristol’s role in securing Ickworth’s extensive book collection, to how our outdoors team manage our acres of woodland. During September and October, visitors will be invited to explore the world both indoors and outdoors, from the books that were bound to last to walks on the life of an Ickworth Oak and how we use our woodland to help heat the House. Children are invited to take part and become ‘Little

Rangers’ for the day by collecting acorns to be replanted around the estate. During half term, the children’s crafts will use the nature around it including conkers, pine cones and leaves, turning them into creative mementos to take home. Join us for the biggest weekend in the Ickworth calendar at our annual Wood & Craft on 6 & 7 October. There is so much to see and do, including the incredibly rare opportunity to buy quality Ickworth wood milled from across the estate. Find that perfect gift, (dare we say first Christmas presents!) and meet the Anglian potters to take home something

uniquely hand crafted. Learn about different techniques for transforming wood into beautiful items with our skilled demonstrators. Enjoy live music with locally brewed ales and delicious street food from our BBQ. Then watch as Oliver, the traditional saw mill, steams into action to demonstrate the art of wood milling. A truly unmissable weekend!
