Remembrance time An important date in the Bingley calendar is Remembrance Time when the local branch of the Royal British Legion organise the Poppy Appeal and the Remembrance Parade and Service. The volunteers make up and distribute, and eventually collect, some 140 tins and boxes to local shops and businesses. 5Rise, the owners of Myrtle Walk shopping precinct, usually provides a shop, manned by an army of volunteers, for the sale of Poppies, wreaths, crosses and other merchandise. Last year the Poppy Appeal raised nearly ÂŁ13,000 from the generosity of the people in the Bingley area. This years Parade, on Sunday 11th November, is being enhanced and will be led by the Spen Valley Scouts and Guides Band. The Parade will include the Deputy Lieutenant of West Yorkshire, the Deputy Lord Mayor of Bradford, the Member of

Parliament, the local Councillors and representatives of local organisations together with the Bingley detachment of the Army Cadet Force, Scouts, Guides, Sea Scouts, schoolchildren and members of the Public. It will start from Queen Street at 10.30am and march along Main Street, into Myrtle Place, and to the Cenotaph in Myrtle Park where the Hot Aire Concert Band

will be playing to those already congregated there. The Service will be conducted by Canon Ron Jackson and the Hymn singing led by Robert Darnbrough and hopefully, a choir from one of the local schools. Following the wreath laying, where the public have the opportunity to lay their own commemorations, the Parade will re-assemble and return to Queen Street with the Deputy Lieutenant, together with the Deputy Lord Mayor, taking the Salute in Main Street, opposite the Old Library. This is a very busy but interesting time for the members of the Bingley branch of the Royal British Legion and anyone who would like to help should contact the Secretary, Mrs Judith Hill, on 01274 563155.

Cover story

In the pink breast cancer awareness October is breast cancer awareness month – going pink to help raise awareness and hopefully early detection. Breast cancer is the most common cancer in the UK and the number of women being diagnosed is rising. However, the survival rates are improving year on year, and early detection is really important. Mr Rick Linforth, Consultant Breast Surgeon of Bradford NHS Foundation Trust says: “80% of patients diagnosed will now live over 10 years and many surviving 20 years and more. This is due to earlier detection, better treatments and charities

like Cancer Support Bradford and Airedale giving patients the right support at the right time for them” Last year in Bradford and Airedale 5,500 symptomatic patients attended breast screening clinics, each and every one of them worried about a cancer diagnosis. Out of those 415 were diagnosed with cancer. Cancer Support Bradford and Airedale were able to offer their support and advice right at the point of diagnosis and support them through their journey.

Maria’s Story Maria’s life was turned upside down when she was first diagnosed with breast cancer. As a wife and mother of two, she felt overwhelmed by the impact her intensive treatment was having on her and her family. Maria initially used the welfare rights service, preferring to access support over the phone. Later, when she felt ready, she enjoyed complementary therapies and benefited from counselling sessions at the centre and talks from specialists on her illness. She regularly used the drop-in information service, and even took pottery classes. Maria found that she could set the right balance between telephone and faceto-face support, and this really helped her to come to terms with her illness and cope with her new life. If you’d like to help make sure we can help other cancer patients like Maria and help to raise awareness for people within your local community, these are a few ways you can help: • Join our IN THE PINK campaign • Share your own story of how we supported you • Have a FUN-raising event of your own For further information please contact Cancer Support Bradford and Airedale by email at: support @bradfordcancersupport.org.uk or on tel: 01274 776688, or visit Charity registration us at www.bradfordcancer no 519429 support.org.uk 8

Halloween

The history of Halloween Halloween is a holiday celebrated on the night of October 31. The word Halloween is a shortening of All Hallow Evening also known as Hallowe’en or All Hallows’ Eve. Traditional activities include trick-or-treating, bonfires, costume parties, visiting “haunted houses” and carving jack-o-lanterns. Irish and Scottish immigrants carried versions of the tradition to North America in the nineteenth century. Other western countries embraced the holiday in the late twentieth century including Ireland, the United States, Canada, Puerto Rico and the United Kingdom as well as of Australia and New Zealand.

Halloween has its origins in the ancient Celtic festival known as Samhain (pronounced “sah-win”). The festival of Samhain is a celebration of the end of the harvest season in Gaelic culture. Samhain was a time used by the ancient pagans to take stock of supplies and prepare for winter. The ancient Gaels believed that on October 31, the boundaries between the worlds of the living and the dead overlapped and the deceased would come 10

back to life and cause havoc such as sickness or damaged crops. The festival would frequently involve bonfires. It is believed that the fires attracted insects to the area, which attracted bats to the area. These are additional attributes of the history of Halloween. Masks and costumes were worn in an attempt to mimic the evil spirits or appease them. Trick-or-treating, is an activity for children on or around Halloween in which they proceed from house to house in costumes, asking for treats such as confectionery with the question, “Trick or treat?” The “trick” part of “trick or treat” is a threat to play a trick on the homeowner or his property if no treat is given. Trick-or-treating is one of the main traditions of Halloween. It has become socially expected that if one lives in a neighbourhood

with children one should purchase treats in preparation for trick-or-treaters. The history of Halloween has evolved. The activity is popular in the United States, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Canada, and due to increased American cultural influence in recent years, imported through exposure to US television and other media, trick-ortreating has started to occur among children in many parts of Europe, and in the Saudi Aramco camps of Dhahran, Akaria compounds and Ras Tanura in Saudi Arabia. The most significant growth and resistance is in the United Kingdom, where the police have threatened to prosecute parents who allow their children to carry out the “trick” element. In continental Europe, where the commerce-driven importation of Halloween is seen with more skepticism, numerous destructive or illegal “tricks” and police warnings have further raised suspicion about this game and Halloween in general. In Ohio, Iowa, and Massachusetts, the night designated for Trick-or-treating is often referred to as Beggars Night. Part of the history of Continued on page 12

Halloween Halloween is Halloween costumes. The practice of dressing up in costumes and begging door to door for treats on holidays goes back to the Middle Ages, and includes Christmas wassailing. Trick-or-treating resembles the late medieval practice of “souling,” when poor folk would go door to door on Hallowmas (November 1), receiving food in return for prayers for the dead on All Souls Day (November 2). It originated in Ireland and Britain, although similar practices for the souls of the dead were found as far south as Italy. Shakespeare mentions the practice in his comedy The Two Gentlemen of Verona (1593), when Speed accuses his master of “puling [whimpering, whining], like a beggar at Hallowmas.” Yet there is no evidence that souling was ever practiced in America, and trick-ortreating may have developed in America independent of any Irish or British antecedent. There is little primary Halloween history documentation of masking or costuming on Halloween in Ireland, the UK, or America before 1900. The earliest known reference to ritual begging on Halloween in English speaking North America occurs in 1911, when a newspaper in Kingston, Ontario, near the border of upstate New York, reported that it was normal for the smaller children to go street guising (see below) on Halloween between 6 and 7 p.m., visiting shops and neighbours to be rewarded with nuts and

candies for their rhymes and songs. Another isolated reference appears, place unknown, in 1915, with a third reference in Chicago in 1920. The thousands of Halloween postcards produced between the turn of the 20th century and the 1920s commonly show children but do not depict trick-or-treating. Ruth Edna Kelley, in her 1919 history of the holiday. The Book of Hallowe’en, makes no mention of such a custom in the chapter “Hallowe’en in America.” It does not seem to have become a widespread practice until the 1930s, with the earliest known uses in print of the term “trick or treat” appearing in 1934, and the first use in a national publication occurring in 1939. Thus, although a quarter million Scots-Irish immigrated to America between 1717 and 1770, the Irish Potato Famine brought almost a million immigrants in 1845 and 1849, and British and Irish immigration to America peaked in the 1880s, ritualized begging on Halloween was virtually unknown in America until generations later. Trick-or-treating spread from the western United States eastward, stalled by sugar rationing that began in April 1942 during World War II and did not end until June 1947. Early national attention to trick-or-treating was given in October 1947 issues of the children’s magazines Jack and Jill and Children’s Activities, and by Halloween episodes of the network radio programs The Baby Snooks Show in 1946 and The Jack Benny Show and The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet in 1948. The custom had become firmly established in popular culture by 1952, when Walt Disney portrayed it in the cartoon Trick

or Treat, Ozzie and Harriet were besieged by trick-ortreaters on an episode of their television show, and UNICEF first conducted a national campaign for children to raise funds for the charity while trick-or-treating. Although some popular histories of Halloween have characterized trick-or-treating as an adult invention to rechannel Halloween activities away from vandalism, nothing in the historical record supports this theory. To the contrary, adults, as reported in newspapers from the mid-1930s to the mid-1950s, typically saw it as a form of extortion, with reactions ranging from bemused indulgence to anger. Likewise, as portrayed on radio shows, children would have to explain what trick-ortreating was to puzzled adults, and not the other way around.

Sometimes even the children protested: for Halloween 1948, members of the Madison Square Boys Club in New York City carried a parade banner that read “American Boys Don’t Beg.” HAPPY HALLOWEEN .

Suffragettes in Bingley and at Shipley Glen and Woodhouse Moor, Leeds? - Forgotten Moments Whilst researching at Keighley Library recently our local historian Alan Cattell discovered a long forgotten call to the women of Bingley from an imprisoned Suffragette (who was a local organiser and resident in the town) A number of events link Bingley and Shipley Glen and Woodhouse Moor, Leeds as regards Suffragette activity locally. In this article Alan explores these links and examines in chronological order some of the early Yorkshire 14 | My Community HUB

connections with the Suffragette movement. His intention is to identify a few of the local people and events that played a part in eventually achieving Votes for Women. Background The Suffragettes -Two Active Families Whilst there were many key players within the Suffrage movement, for the purposes of this article, two families who made significant contributions nationally and influenced events locally, are identified.

The Pankhursts In October 1903 Emmeline Pankhurst and her daughters, Christabel, Adela and Sylvia, invited a small group of workingclass women, most of them wives of members of the Independent Labour Party (ILP) to their home in Manchester. There they established the Women’s Social and Political Union (WSPU), a new form of suffrage group which would essentially change the nature of the movement and surprise the nation with its militant tactics.


The Pankhurst family lived in their Manchester home until 1906, when they moved the operation to London The Kenneys In 1905 Annie Kenney and her sisters Jessie and Jenny, living in Oldham (and subsequently Springhead, Yorkshire) were invited to a meeting at Oldham Trades Council at which Christabel Pankhurst was one of the main speakers. As a result Annie became the first sister to become an active suffragette, eventually becoming a key organiser for the WSPU nationally. Jessie, Jenny and Nell Kenney would soon join their sister as activists. Nell/Nellie (Sarah Ellen) Kenney was the third child and eldest sister of the family. Born in Lees near Oldham she began work as a half- timer in a cotton mill at age 10 but at age 24 left factory work due to ill health and found work in a shop (Votes for Women - June 18th 1908). She was so successful in her new job as a shop assistant that her employers put her in charge of two of their shops.

Annie Kenney and Christabel Pankhurst Nell Kenney -The Bingley Connection Several reports point towards Nell Kenny then moving to and living and working in Bingley. Nell

is identified by the Evening Post April 1907 as a shop assistant of Bingley. Crawford (1999) The Womens Suffrage Movement - A Reference Guide identifies that Miss Nellie Kenney of 14, Leonards Place, Bingley became the Bingley WSPU Organiser in 1906. The Keighley Herald of 22nd February 1907 records that “Miss Nellie Kenney the Bingley lady who is at present serving fourteen days for her share in the disturbances outside the House of Commons has written to the women of Bingley calling attention to the treatment meted out to the Suffragettes. Arrested at the House of Commons The disturbances referred to were the WSPU march from what was nicknamed the first “Womens Parliament” at Caxton Hall to the Commons on 13 February 1907. In the north of England, WSPU organisers had recruited women willing to go to prison in the name of women’s suffrage. Nell Kenney and her sisters were amongst these. There was a large turnout of women at Caxton Hall... amidst great excitement, a resolution condemning the omission of women’s suffrage from the King’s Speech was passed, as also was a motion that the resolution be taken to the Prime Minister. Then Emmeline Pankhurst’s cry `Rise up, women!’ was answered by shouts of `Now!’ and a procession of about 400 women was formed.

The police attempted to halt the march but the women were determined to make their point. What ensued was a long struggle between mounted police and the suffragettes which continued until late in the evening. By the time the melee ended at 10pm, fifty-one women including Nell Kenney had been arrested and imprisoned for fourteen days. Hence Nell’s call for support from the ladies of Bingley! And then to the South of France! Extremely resourceful and apparently undaunted by their arrest and imprisonment Nell along with Mary Gawthorpe, another Yorkshire activist, travelled to France to confront the then Prime- Minister only days after their release. Reporting from Paris the Evening Post of April said: “Misses Nellie Kenney of Bingley and Mary Gawthorpe Continued on page 16

My Community HUB | 15


Local History of Leeds,, two of the fiftyone women’s suffragists who were arrested and fined for participating in a disturbance at the House of Commons on 13th February 1907, interviewed Sir Henry Campbell Bannerman in the dining room of a Cannes train. The Prime Minister tried in vain to disuade the suffragists from making further demonstrations outside the House of Commons, and he refused to introduce a Bill to grant the franchise to women during the current session.” Full- Time Organiser In 1907 and recognizing her contribution, the WPSU appointed Nell as a full-time organiser where she worked in Northern England, the Midlands and Plymouth, with occasional visits to Scotland to speak at rallies and “at home” talks In 1908 Nell was to return to Yorkshire as one of the key speakers at a large rally at Shipley Glen. Shipley Glen Rally Local and national newspaper reports of the time identify that either 40k, 50k, 60k, 70k or 100,000 people attended a mass rally at Shipley Glen in May 1908. These reports also state that trains and trams to the Glen were stretched to full capacity. Stink Bombs Attention is also given to the fact that gangs of “noisy youths” tried to disrupt speeches given by Suffragette leaders by singing comic songs, shouting, playing tin whistles, ringing bells or releasing sulpharated hydrogen (stink bombs). Accounts suggest that Adela Pankhurst and Mary Gawthorpe “had the worst time of it”. Miss Pankhurst was assailed with eggs and peas but she and Miss Gawthorpe “went on to the end, defying their interupters”. Accounts by the Pankhursts Writing in Votes for Women in June 1908 Adela Pankhurst who was by then the main organiser in Yorkshire stated: 16 | My Community HUB

“The Shipley Glen demonstration took place on Sunday. It was a great triumph for our cause, some 100,000 people gathered round our six platforms. The platforms were arranged as follows: 1. Mrs E Pankhurst; Miss Hartland in Chair 2. Miss N. Kenney; Mrs Batchelor in Chair 3. Miss Mary Gawthorpe; Miss Foster in Chair 4. Miss Lamb; Miss Newton in Chair 5. Mrs Baines; Miss Hartop in Chair 6. Miss A Pankhurst; Miss Massey in Chair” What is clear is that the Suffragette press chose the upper figure of 100,000 attendees figure to stress the success of the rally. Follow-up article by Emmeline Pankhurst In Votes for Women, August 27th 1908) Emmeline Pankhurst gave a more detailed account of the Shipley Glen meeting under the heading of The Great Votes for Women Demonstration in Shipley Glen, Bradford. In it she highlights the support received from the people of Bradford, including the City Council. “For weeks past all Bradford has been talking about the Yorkshire Suffrage Sunday held in Shipley Glen on May 31st. The Tramway Committee made special preparations to convey the extra passengers expected, and for some days official notices appeared in all cars announcing the demonstration. The meeting was advertised to begin at 3.30pm, but before noon heavily laden cars began to leave the city, and an unending stream of people on foot wended their way to the picturesque glen, the property of the people of Bradford, about three miles away from the city itself. When the speakers arrived on the ground, the six platforms were surrounded by dense

crowds numbering at least 100,000 people. Never in the history of the glen have so many human beings been gathered together. In the local Liberal Press there had appeared paragraphs suggesting that attempts would be made to disturb the meetings and this suggestion was taken up by small gangs of noisy youths armed with bells and tin trumpets etc. Nevertheless, the vast audience of orderly and attentive persons prevented any effective disturbance, and at 5 o clock a resolution calling upon the Government to enfranchise the women of this country this session was carried with practical unanimity. When the meeting closed the people would not go away and begged us to hold another meeting in the evening. The Prime Minister expects us to show a popular demand for votes for women. We offer to him the demand of the people of Bradford, which has already spoken officially through its City Council when it adopted some months ago, a resolution similar to the one carried at the great open-air meeting on the Suffrage Sunday of Yorkshire.” The Woodhouse Moor Rally, Leeds The Pankhurst and Kenney families and Mary Gawthorpe were again in action at another rally attended by a reported 100,000 people at Woodhouse Moor, Leeds on 26th July 1908. This was particularly poignant for Mary Gawthorpe who had grown up in the area as a child. The photograph (above right) from the Leeds Mercury depicts a scene from the rally. Emigration Having been involved in some of the early activity of the Suffragette movement, Nell Kenney married a young journalist who she had met at an open-air Suffragette rally in the Midlands in 1908. She and


Women and The Vote Eventually women in the UK were given the vote in 1918 through The Representation of the People Act, if they were over 30 and satisfied certain property qualifications. In 1928 suffrage was extended to all women over the age of 21 as a result of The Equal Franchise Act which became law on 2nd July 1928. Emmeline Pankhurst never witnessed this because she died aged 70 in a nursing home on 14th June 1928. Acknowledgments to Bradford Libaries and The Leeds Mercury Alan Cattell BingleySeptember 2012 her new husband emigrated to Canada in 1909. Her husband became involved in pioneering work for the employment and training of the disabled. Mary Gawthorpe continued to be heavily involved in the WSPU

until 1911, when she retired due to ill-health. In 1916 she emigrated to New York where she remained active in the American Suffrage movement and in Trade Union activity.

This Dental Breakthrough Has Slashed The Price of New Permanent Teeth By 50% Now smile confidently. Easily bite into apples, chew nuts or eat a steak

P

icture this. You walk into a dentist with gaps in your teeth or you’re wearing dentures. And you leave with new teeth the same day. No need to wear dentures anymore. Sounds unbelievable, but it’s true.

That’s because there is a newer dental tooth implant procedure available. And this procedure is up to 50% less expensive than older tooth implant procedures. What’s more, there’s NO gum flap surgery, NO extensive bone drilling and NO stitches afterwards. Minimal disturbance to your mouth This newer procedure uses “keyhole” surgery. So your mouth is quicker to heal after any procedure. And the good news is this new type of tooth implanting is accessible to patients who haven’t been able to get tooth implants before - because of either cost, difficulty or any lack of bone height or width. And it’s ideal for patients who are nervous when visiting a dentist as this process involves fewer dental visits. So, what exactly is involved? Well, an initial tiny keyhole is made where the tooth implant is to go .The correct size implant is placed which will eventually be used to anchor to take

the permanent tooth. Your implant then has a temporary crown attached to it. This new tooth is then left for 8 – 12 weeks to allow the bone to fuse the new implant. Next, an imprint for a new crown is taken. Once the new crown is ready, you return to have your new crown fitted. In fact, you can even have a new tooth implant the same day as you have any teeth removed. And if you have 3 or even 4 teeth missing, then these can be replaced with only 2 implants. But do you get any soreness from tooth implanting? This may occur in the first 24 – 48 hours. But it’s easily overcome by taking Paracetamol or similar. But are all tooth implants successful? The answer is no. However, I do have a 95% success rate when I perform a tooth implant. That’s 9 out of every 10 people who don’t have to wear dentures anymore. And if your implant doesn’t ‘take’ I re-do it for FREE. And, if the new implant still doesn’t ‘take’, then I refund you your money. So you’re NOT risking a single penny. Here’s what just a few of my tooth implant clients have to say:


“At 30 I lost my bottom front teeth and I became very self conscious. Since having the implants done I am very happy and would definitely have others done in the future. The procedure is easy and the results are fantastic.” Yolanda Gallagher, Huddersfield “I was very nervous about having my tooth implant but need not have worried. I’m delighted with my new teeth and feel much more confident!” Carol Armitage, Halifax “Having my tooth implants was painless and easy. My new implants are absolutely brilliant. They have transformed my smile and made me more confident. My friends tell me how good they look.” Gwen Rika, Bradford “After a motorway accident 5 of my front teeth were completely snapped off. Dr Zaman replaced my front teeth with temporary ones immediately I couldn’t believe the quality of work and the quick and speedy service.” Karen Adams, Almondbury “I’m 82. When I started to lose my bottom teeth I didn’t want a lower denture. As I already have a top denture. So I asked Dr Zaman what were the alternatives. He told me I could have a bridge or two teeth implants. So I had the implants. It was easy having them put in. No pain. And they’re one of the best things I’ve ever had done.” Jean Batley, Brighouse

Imagine being able to eat an apple... nuts... or chew a steak. Imagine feeling confident when talking to others. Imagine roaring with laughter because you’re proud of your smile. Do you Qualify?

Drain off water. Drizzle with a dessertspoon of olive oil and add to the pasta sauce as required. Add in the cooked spaghetti and coat completely. Make sure that the pasta is thoroughly heated through before serving the dish. Correct the seasoning, add the chopped basil and the remainder of the grated parmesan and serve immediately.

Cat’s Corner mmunity Hub is nthly feature, My Co of what is happening mo ing nu nti co r ou In you up to date news pleased to be bringingWe are pleased to be working with such e. ntr ce wanted cats in our at the homing ich helps re-home un wh ty, ari ch tic tas a fan region.

Choosing the cat for you is not always black and white By Sam Davies Haworth Cat Centre Manager When it comes to finding homes for cats and kittens at our centre it really is a case of black and white. That is to say, black and white cats are the longest stayers because they are the least popular choice when it comes to adoption. There are several possible reasons for this. Black and white is the most common colour for cats and, like all things in life, it’s whatever is in short supply – not what’s readily available - that tends to be wanted most. So more people are drawn towards cats with coloured or patterned fur. A ginger tom, grey or pure white cat is still a bit ‘different’ whereas cats like the ones in the Felix ads are seen as two a penny. Interestingly, black cats are often favoured simply because there are cat lovers who are consciously anti ‘anti-black’ and want to make a point of casting aside the ancient myths that traditionally deterred people from wanting them as pets. The final reason for the glut of black and white cats at rescues around the world is probably because there are more of them in the first place, so this is reflected in the numbers found in homing Young mum Felis has said goodbye to her kittens but has been overlooked 22

My Community HUB

Affectionate Figaro is nine years young and six months since arriving is still waiting for his forever home centres. Because there is a bigger percentage of black and white cats, by default the fewer coloured cats up for adoption stand out more when visitors come looking for a furry companion. When a black and white cat comes with added baggage, such as being older, nervous, a bit of a ‘swiper’ or with a chronic medical condition (diabetes, hyperthyroid, urinary tract etc) the chances of finding a home quickly are slim to none. Sadly, this is the case for several of the cats currently in our care. We also have lots of young mums with lovely temperaments, whose kittens have now been adopted and are now in need of loving homes. Half of the cats waiting for homes in our shelter are black and white females under 2 years old, their kittens easily found new homes but they have been ignored. It’s getting colder. We have strays on our waiting list that need the safety of a warm pen and regular meals, but we can’t free up space until some of these adorable black and white cats have been homed. Some have been with us for many months. It’s time for them to go home. If you think you can open your heart to a black and white cat waiting for love, we look forward to introducing you.

Simply Bathrooms & Kitchens Michele and Rick Tonks of Simply Bathrooms (Bingley) have recently made a huge investment in their Bingley showroom. Due to demand from their existing customer base to add Kitchens to their range they are now known as Simply Bathrooms & Kitchens… Anybody that has ever dealt with Michele and Rick would agree that they take great pride in the quality products and service that they have always offered. After being asked by many customers whether they offered the same kind of design, planning and installation of kitchens they finally made the commitment and have extended their showrooms with some fine examples. The new showroom is almost finished and will be open by the beginning of October They will be hosting an open evening in the first two weeks of October, if you would like an invite please let them know… Choosing the right combination

of kitchen designs, finishes, appliances, accessories and work surfaces was very important. Their full design planning and installation service means that they have to have 100% faith in the quality of the products they offer. They chose kitchens that are bespoke manufactured specifically for you, here in Yorkshire. They hand picked suppliers of Granite because of the suppliers reputation and the fact that templates are still hand made by skilled craftsmen, which means a perfect fit every time. It’s attention to detail like this that sets them apart, they have the best showroom for miles around and a range of kitchens that’s not available anywhere else in Bradford.

Going that extra mile

As a small boutique showroom for both bathrooms & kitchens this means you always get the special treatment. Michele &

Rick as owner /managers feel it’s important to deal directly with their clients rather than employing sales people.


This way they know that you are always being looked after and given the best possible advice and service. Having gained a great reputation for Bathrooms Michele and Rick are very excited about launching the Kitchen side of the business. With many years experience in creating stunning Bathrooms they have all the necessary skills, contacts and of course the perfect team to gain the same kind of reputation as the premier Kitchen design, planning and Installation Company in the area.

Making your life easier

Planning a major overhaul of your Kitchen or Bathroom can be very involving and a little stressful. Michele and Rick feel strongly about making this as simple as possible for you and your family. From the moment you step into the showroom Michele and Rick want you to be confident in just how personal their service is, from start to finish and beyond. They can take care of the whole project from design to installation. They deal with the planning, building regulations, and take care of all other services that may be needed. Whatever your situation Michele and Rick will guide you through your choices, spending time finding the right bathroom or kitchen for you with their expert advice along with finding those

unusual and bespoke items which make your bathroom or kitchen personal. Michele is more than happy to design your new room with you and create stunning 3D visuals for you so you can see how your new Bathroom or Kitchen will

look when finished. Throughout the whole process you will also see your costs and specifications clearly itemised before you proceed. All designs are checked and surveyed by an Institute of Plumbing registered plumber qualified to City & Guilds advanced craft standards. All Kitchen Designs are checked by a registered joiner qualified to City & Guilds advanced craft starndards. This means the quality of workmanship is maintained at all times, making the experience as simple as possible for you.

Health Matters Dr Simon Gazeley, a GP at Springfield Surgery in the Canalside Healthcare Centre in Bingley, will be sharing with The Hub readers exclusive advice on topical health issues and giving his tips for a healthy life.

Don’t ignore signs of dementia Many people’s lives are affected by dementia, often in different ways. Anyone of us could develop symptoms of dementia later in life. Maybe you have a husband, wife, Mum or Dad with the condition, and are involved with their care. Perhaps you are living with someone you think is “getting a little forgetful” in their old age, but in fact who has the early stages of the disease. Perhaps you are someone who lives in fear of developing dementia. Maybe you look out for your next door neighbour who is struggling to cope due to their condition. There are about 550 000 people in the UK currently diagnosed with dementia, and this number is expected to double over the coming years, partly because we’re living longer and partly due to improved awareness of the illness. It is slightly more common in women. So what exactly is it? Dementia is actually a group of conditions, characterised by a progressive loss of functioning of the brain. Symptoms can vary greatly from person to person, and we all tend to associate dementia with loss of memory. However, people with dementia can also suffer with impaired thinking, language problems, loss of understanding, or impaired judgement. Depression and apathy are also common. People with dementia may have problems controlling their emotions or behave inappropriately in social situations. Aspects of their personality may change or they may see or hear things that other people do not. 28

There are many different types of dementia. Perhaps the most well known is Alzheimers disease. Different types of dementia have different patterns of symptoms. Preventing dementia You cannot prevent all types of dementia. There is one type called “vascular dementia” which is caused by furring up of the blood vessels, in much the same way as happens in strokes or heart attacks. The way we try and keep healthy to prevent heart attacks (exercising, eating well, not smoking, controlling blood pressure) will help prevent this type of dementia. There is some evidence that dementia is less common in people who are physically and mentally active throughout their lives, so having a range of hobbies and interests may help. Unfortunately there is little to suggest herbal remedies such as ginko help, and the same goes for the “brain training” games. Can dementia be treated? There is no cure for dementia, and it will always get worse with time. However, drugs are available for some types of dementia (eg Alzheimers) which may help to slow down the deterioration, and other types (eg. Vascular) may benefit from other treatments. It is therefore important to make an early diagnosis to maximize potential benefit from treatment. Even if there is no medication suitable for a specific person, input from specialist teams and support groups are likely to improve quality of care and quality of life for both the patient and their carers.

What do I do if I think myself or someone else is showing signs of dementia? The first thing to do is to go and see your GP. They will usually make an assessment by listening to your concerns and carrying out a “mini mental test”, which helps to identify those who may have the disease. If this is abnormal, your GP may then decide to arrange some simple tests (eg blood tests) and make a referral to a specialist memory clinic. Currently such a clinic runs from Canalside Healthcare Centre in Bingley. Common misconceptions People often do not seek help for themselves or their loved one if they’re suspecting dementia, perhaps due to a misconception that nothing can be done. There is also somewhat of a stigma surrounding the diagnosis. Many believe that being diagnosed with dementia will lead to being treated in a negative way by others, and therefore delay seeking help. But an early diagnosis is essential to maximize the benefits of treatment, and to improve quality of life for patients and their carers. So, don’t ignore the signs of dementia, and if in doubt please see your GP. If you would like to give feedback or comments to Simon regarding this feature, or would like to suggest ideas for future features, please contact him through The Hub by emailing kim@overtmarketing.co.uk


Health

Common ailments in children In this “Back to School” article, Harden Pharmacy gives My Community Hub readers advice on common ailments that affect school aged children as well as the common treatments that help manage the conditions. Parents should always feel at ease discussing any of the conditions with their health care professional team. Conjunctivitis Acute inflammation of the conjunctiva, a protective lining which covers the whites of the eye and the inside surface of the eyelids. Symptoms: It is characterised by irritation, redness, itching, and a sensation of grittiness in the eye and watering or discharge. Cause: viral or bacterial infection or due to irritation caused by allergens i.e. pollen, house dust mites. Bacterial conjunctivitis a thick yellow-white discharge is seen, often starting in one eye and quickly affecting both eyes, which may cause lashes to gum together causing difficulty in opening the eye in the morning. In allergic conjunctivitis a clear watery discharge occurring in both eyes with an intense feeling of itchiness and is often accompanied with puffiness around the eye socket and runny nose. Referral: Note any pain that is more than just discomfort, marked redness of the eye or impairment of vision requires further investigation and are advised to contact the doctor or optician. Treatment: Infective conjunctivitis resolves by itself usually within 5-7 days as tears contain chemicals that help fight the infection, though parents may wish reduce child discomfort and speed recovery with the 30

And how to treat them use of a topical antibacterial eye drops or ointments containing Chloramphenicol or Dibromopropamidine Isethionate. Drops should be applied every two hours for the first two days and four hourly thereafter for a minimum of five days even if symptoms improve while the ointment should be applied threefour times a day for five days. Always consult your pharmacist before use.

Impetigo Impetigo is a highly contagious superficial bacterial infection of the skin. It commonly affects infants and young children. It is often seen around the nose and mouth. Its appearance is often a weeping, golden crusted eruption on reddened skin base which may extend over 3-5cm with (bullous form) or without blisters (non-bullous form). Treatment: Impetigo often resolves spontaneously within 2-3 weeks, but treatment should be initiated if there is a danger of the infection being transmitted. Crystacide cream containing hydrogen peroxide is the only over the counter preparation indicated for superficial skin infections. It should be applied 2-3 times a day for a maximum of three weeks. The lesions should be soaked in warm soapy water and washed away prior to treatment. Those children

showing widespread lesions are taken to see their doctor so that a more aggressive form of treatment can be recommended. Care with personal hygiene is important to avoid transmission. Practical tips should be adhered to: • Wash hands after contact with lesion • Do not share flannels and towels • Keep finger nails short • Do not scratch the skin • Children should not go to school whilst being treated Verrucas and warts Warts are caused by the human papilloma virus (HPV) and frequently affect the hands, feet and anogenital areas. Warts can be transmitted through contact and is more likely when the skin barrier or immune system has been compromised. Common warts appear as firm, rough raised, rounded growth with a cauliflower like surface varying in diameter up to 10mm. Tiny black dots may be seen on the surface. Plantar warts which are commonly named verrucas are found on the soles of the feet. The warts grow inwards hence their appearance differs from common warts. They appear as a small horny area of rough skin and small black dots can be seen if the thickened skin is removed, they are often painful. Note: children with warts on the face and anogenital area should be seen by their doctor. Treatment: All therapies are based on tissue destruction of which there are many on the


market. Salicylic acid, lactic acid and glutaraldehyde are common first line choices they should be applied daily taking care to protect the healthy skin surround it with either petroleum jelly or a plaster with a hole cut in it. These products should be used for a minimum of 3 months before and alternative is used. Cryotherapy carried out by some GPs use liquid nitrogen to freeze the warts, it can be painful so should not be first line in young children. There are over the counter products which work on the same principle notably Wartner. Silver nitrate (Avoca) pencils are alternative treatment which should be reserved for extremely stubborn warts but their instructions to use are complicated and treatment therapy is limited to 3 times for a wart and six times for a verruca.

Practical tips: Warts are contagious and preventing their spread is important. A waterproof plaster or sock should be used to cover the verruca if swimming to prevent infection to others. The wart should be filed using

a pumice stone or emery board once weekly to remove the dead, hardened skin to enable the treatment to penetrate to the root of the wart.


Gardening

A blooming success! Here at Baildon Horticultural Society we’re still buzzing from another successful Annual Show with over 500 exhibits entered into the flower, vegetable and handicraft categories. There were some fantastic displays, despite the lack of sunshine earlier this summer which had caused a few worries for all involved. A huge thanks to all the local businesses for their support and all those who worked tirelessly to make this year’s show a success. Even though Autumn has arrived, here in our gardens and allotments we’re still very busy. Although most of the vegetable plants have finished producing , there are some delights such as chillies that ripen right at the end of the season and there will also be fruit to harvest such as apples, plums, pears and raspberries. It’s a beautiful time of year with the trees changing colour but when the wind blows it seems a never ending job to remove the leaves from your lawn. However just think of all the lovely leaf mould you can make!. Chutney and pickles are the perfect way for using up all those odds and ends from the garden in Autumn including unripe tomatoes, windfall apples, partially rotted onions that won’t keep (cut out the bad bits!) and frost tender herbs. Everyone has their favourite recipes but we like this one for Spiced Apple Chutney which has a tangy, sweet flavour - perfect with cheeses such as cheddar, cheshire or white stilton. Why

not make some this year to give as Christmas presents to friends and family! Spiced Apple Chutney Ingredients 225g/8oz onions, chopped 900g/2lb apples, cored and chopped 110g/4oz sultanas, raisins or chopped dates 15g/½oz ground coriander 15g/½oz paprika 15g/½oz mixed spice 15g/½ozsalt 340g/12oz granulated sugar 425ml/¾ pints malt vinegar Preparation method: 1. Put all the ingredients into a preserving pan. Slowly bring to the boil until the sugar has dissolved.

• October is a good month to think about your garden’s spring colour. Remember to plant in drifts of the same plant or colour for a more dramatic effect. You could also think about contrasting colours such as purples with reds or blues and yellows. If you’d like to bring hyacinths on early, simply plant several in a pot and then bury them into ground. It may seem like nothing exciting is happening in the 32

2. Simmer for 1½ - 2 hours, stirring from time to time to stop the chutney sticking to the pan. 3. When it is very thick and you can draw a wooden spoon across the base of the pan so that it leaves a channel behind it that does not immediately fill with liquid, the chutney is ready. 4. Turn into sterilised jars, seal and cool. 5. Store in a cool, dark cupboard for a couple of months before eating.

garden just now but don’t forget, the extra planning and tidying this month will all be worth it when you can enjoy a wonderful show of colour in the Spring! Contact details: Secretary.

Reserve ramblings

All set for Autumn on the reserve

By Steve Warrillow Denso Marston Nature warden Summers done and gone, the autumn sunshine now throws long shadows through the trees giving the reserve a cold but comforting feel. I love this time of the year, the first of the winter thrushes will be passing through from their more northerly homes in Norway and farther afield. The relentless honk of Pink Footed geese skeins passing over heading towards the west coast wintering grounds and the start of the winter management of the reserve, we will be hedge laying again this winter, the hedges that we laid last winter have done well.

In another three to four years they will be laid again, though it may be sooner especially if they grow like they have done this year. The good growth will have been good for nesting birds like the blackbird. The first hedge that we had laid in its first year a blackbird made a nest and raised young. I have recently just did the final check of our nest boxes, it had been delayed by the weather and also I wasn’t sure what I was expecting to find, finding dead chicks is not the most pleasant things to come across, however to my surprise and delight I only found one nest box with dead chicks, this year we have had over 120 chicks fledge from the nest boxes. Celebration pints all round!

As I write this the classroom and toilet block will be installed on the reserve, this will open up lots of new areas for the reserve with hopefully the increase of groups visiting the reserve and also more activities for the groups to indulge in. In particular our very own Spider club, who have now become radio stars on Shipley Corner on BCB radio. They now record their own show for programme and it has its own very groovy theme tune, Teenage kicks played on the ukulele. Cool. Now we are in autumn/winter the walks are now slowing down, our October walk is a fairly early start for a Saturday morning, 8.15am – Saturday 20th October we will be vismiging, looking for dots in the sky which are migrating birds its very good because you never know what you are going to see. I’ll let you all know next time. If you want to find out about vismiging and other walks you can contact me on 07919525913 or email: whirlygigwarrillow@ googlemail.com

Advertorial

A divorce only ends your marriage, not your financial relationship Erika Williman, Divorce Solicitor at Bradford’s Petherbridge Bassra Solicitors highlights the fact that divorce does not automatically deal with a couple’s finances. As a Family Lawyer, one of my responsibilities is to dispel the many myths surrounding the divorce process. The first time I meet a client they are often, understandably, dealing with a barrage of emotions and unsure of what to do next – often the uppermost thought in their mind is simply ‘getting out’ of the marriage as swiftly and cost-effectively as possible. They often lose sight of the fact that they need to protect themselves financially for their life after divorce. Right to Claim A divorce ends the marriage contract between the couple, effectively replacing the marriage certificate with a decree absolute. It often amazes clients that matrimonial finances are not dealt with automatically as part of the divorce. Spouses and indeed ex-spouses have the right to make claims for property, maintenance and savings (including pensions). Should a financial claim be made following a divorce it can only be settled in one of two ways. Firstly, via court order settting out the parties obligations to the other. The second way matters can be brought to an end is if one party re-marries and therefore loses any right to make a financial claim against their previous spouse. Future-proof Finances Even if there are no savings or property at the particular time that a client seeks my advice regarding a divorce, I always recommend an order being drawn up to fully dismiss any potential claims from being made in the future. This prevents the situation whereby the parties have been divorced without drawing up a financial agreement and one party may receive an inheritance, win the lottery or just end up earning large sums of money. This was a scenario faced in 2010 when an ex wife made a claim for a share of the winnings plus increased child maintenance ten years after the 36

Dogs and crowd control Have you ever wanted to take your dog to a car boot sale, Saturday market, parade, or a pet expo but haven’t because you are afraid of controlling your dog in large crowds? Or, have you taken your dog to one of these events and then had to leave because you just weren’t able to control your dog? Don’t worry, you are not alone. Handling a dog in a crowd can be a difficult and stressful situation. There are a lot of dangers within the crowd itself — people stepping on your dog, tripping on them, other dogs that may or may not be friendly, children running up and grabbing your dog from behind or by the ears — not to mention your dog’s reactions to all of the sights, smells and other stimuli going on around him. 1. Start Early. If you have a puppy, there is no time like the present to get it used to be being in crowds. Expose him to as many sights, smells, sounds, dogs, and people as you can. The more you desensitise him when he is young, the easier it will be to control him in a crowd when he gets older. 2. Know Your Dog’s Limits. Whether your dog is old or young, chances are there is something that they are fearful of or don’t like. At home, with the help of friends and their kids and dogs, see what situations make your dog uncomfortable. It’s better to find out at home with friends that your dog might snap when touched from behind, for example, than for it to snap at a stranger on the street who might demand the dog be put down! Once you know what the buttons are, you can work with a trainer on overcoming those and, in the meantime, you know what to avoid when you are in a crowd. 3. Avoid Over stimulation. If your dog is not used to 38

big crowds, start out by going to smaller events with less excitement and fewer distractions, so that each experience is a positive one. One bad experience and your dog could develop a fear of crowds. 4. Keep Your Dog Close. The worst thing you can possible do is have your dog on a flex lead in a large crowd. The closer your dog is to you, the more control you have over him and whatever is around him. It’s not just for your dog’s safety — a lead is a big tripping hazard for anyone else walking through the crowd, and flexi leads are hard to see, even from fairly nearby. 5. Heel. Nothing is better than the heel command. A dog that has a rock solid heel will be the easiest dog to control in a crowd

because he is right by your side at all times. Start off with short walks and gradually build up distance as your dog learns the command. 6. Teach Focus. Before stepping into any type of crowd situation, your dog should have a command word that means to focus on you. A common one is “watch me,” where the dog is taught to look at you when you say it. This is a great command for regaining your dog’s focus in distracting situations. Be sure to build the command up with slowly increasing distractions and stimulation to ensure success.

Movie Reviews

SKYFALL, starring Daniel Craig, Ralph Fiennes, Javier Bardem, Judi Dench and Berenice Marlohe. Directed by Sam Mendes, will be released on October 26th 2012.

Bond is back in action Daniel Craig is back as James Bond 007 in SKYFALL, the 23rd installment of the longest-running film franchise in history. In SKYFALL, Bond’s loyalty to M (Judi Dench) is tested as her past returns to haunt her. 007 must track down and destroy the threat, no matter how personal the cost. When Bond’s latest assignment goes gravely wrong and agents around the world are exposed, MI6 is attacked forcing M to relocate the agency. These events cause her

authority and position to be challenged by Mallory (Ralph Fiennes), the new Chairman of the Intelligence and Security Committee. With MI6 now compromised from both inside and out, M is left with one ally she can trust: Bond. 007 takes to the shadows – aided only by field agent, Eve (Naomie Harris) – following a trail to the mysterious Silva (Javier Bardem), whose lethal and hidden motives have yet to reveal themselves. The film is from Albert R. Broccoli’s EON Productions, Metro-GoldwynMayer Studios, and Sony Pictures Entertainment
