‘Goole in Colour’ at Goole Museum Goole in Colour, an exhibition from 17 April - 16 June at Goole Museum, created by Time Travel Restorations, showcases the extraordinary skills of Pippa Stainton, an extremely talented photograph restorer who lives and works in Goole. She has a passion for local history, spending many hours researching not only the history but also the detail shown in a photograph.


For this exhibition Pippa was given access to Goole Museum and the library’s photographic collection. This has produced some stunning restored and colourised photographs of Goole. The photos take visitors on a journey around the historic town. Unlike the original images, the clarity and restored colour gives the viewer the feeling of going back in time and seeing the town as it really was. Debbie Hardy said : “Painstaking research and detective work worthy of Sherlock Holmes has created not only accurate colours, but also a deeper knowledge of what the photographs actually show. This is a chance to experience time travel – and you only have to visit Goole Museum to do it!” Goole Museum is located in Carlisle Street and is open as follows: Tuesday to Friday 10am to 5pm Wednesday 10am to 7pm Saturday 9am to 4pm Closed for lunch 12 noon to 12.30pm (Wednesdays 1.30 to 2pm) Admission is free, and there is lift access.

Our top 5 tips to create cottage style living Interior designer Cori Clarke shares ideas for farmhouse / cottage style living I’m delighted to be able to share five ways to inject more farmhouse / cottage character in to your home, whether it’s a new build that you live in or your home is steeped in period features.


If you find yourself looking around your living room, dining room, kitchen or bedroom feeling like it lacks character when you’ve got your heart set on a home freshly cut from a country living style magazine, then a good place to start is to brainstorm a few outside-the-box changes you could make to your house that goes beyond painting the walls and laying wood flooring. Whether you are about to embark on a home renovation, or you’re buying a new home to decorate as your cosy, country escape, I hope that this article gives you a few unexpected ideas to create real farmhouse / cottage focal points in every room and make the most of the potential your home has. So, let’s begin. Here are my 5 home hacks to consider if you’d like to bring farmhouse / cottage character to your home. 1. Lay a stone floor When you think about having a country inspired home what scenes do you picture? Cosying up in a tartan blanket with a cuppa? Stomping home in muddy boots while the dog shakes off the dirt from your walk in the

countryside? The things you have in your home need to be practical as well as character filled, and there’s nothing more “Cotswolds Cottage Life” then a textured limestone floor. The more irregular it’s laid, the better. Not only is it super practical for cleaning, it will instantly add a soft country focal point to a hallway, utility room or kitchen. Stone floors don’t need to be costly or high maintenance. Opt for a porcelain tile in an irregular stone shade for a much more affordable and zero maintenance look.

installed. All country-look living rooms have detail and character to them, often achieved with accentuating period features. If you don’t have period features, then a picture rail (or dado rail if you prefer) will instantly give a period charm to your decoration. 3. Opt for wood panelling on your walls

Continued page 10

2. Install / reinstate a picture rail Does the room you want to decorate feel “boxy”? Is it lacking features? Are you living in a new build that’s in need of some identity? While picture rails may sound dated, the moment you fix on a strong colour scheme for the ceilings and above the rail and all the walls, you’ll realise what a strong injection of character you bring to the room having one

House & Home an old stable door. Odd, but cute.

This one’s for the very brave among us. When there’s times wallpaper feature walls just aren’t enough, cladding one of your walls in a warm, rustic wood is a brave and oh-so-farmhouse feature you can bring to any home. If you like the concept but want a more subtle vibe, perhaps tongue and groove panelling is better suited to you. The perfect option for bringing a little more farmhouse charm to bathrooms in particular. 4. Swap featureless doors for reclaimed wood, stained glass or stable doors


I always think there are 2 ways you can give a house your own stamp, the first is changing light sockets and switches for a “more considered” polish like chrome or brass. The second is swapping plain white doors that might lack character for something more reclaimed. Scrap yards are a

farmhouse lovers treasure trove. Reinvent, sand, stain and oil old doors ready to hang in your home and you’ll not only bring rustic features to the house, but I bet you’ll have a story for every piece you find. It’s fun to experiment with which doors work in which rooms. In the 1930s house I am renovating (it’s a city home, but modern farm charm) I’ve installed traditional oak doors throughout, and my downstairs toilet door is

5. Build a stud / “faux” chimney breast This idea is particularly good to consider if your living room is long, doubles up as a dining room or if you want to introduce period features to your building. Fireplaces don’t have to be original to the house you live in. If you want a decorative fireplace, you can have it. If building regs and your layout allows it, you can even install a real wood burning stove too. Faux chimney breasts are remarkably easy to build for a reputable builder in your area. It will bring a focal point to your living room, giving you alcoves to install traditional shelving, and something to position your sofas around for a sociable layout. I hope this post has given you some creative ideas on the opportunities you have within your 4 walls - Good luck!

Warning over illegal puppy breeders in East Yorkshire East Riding of Yorkshire Council licensing officers are investigating five allegations of illegal puppy breeding in the area. The practice may see breeders import puppies into the UK and sell them online, via newspaper adverts or in car parks The council is investigating nearly half a dozen claims and has warned people to make sure they buy from a reputable breeder, rather than those who may not be licensed or from a puppy farm. Louise Attwood, interim licensing manager said, “Rogue dog breeders are not complying with legislation which the council enforces to protect the welfare of dogs, ensuring good accommodation, food, water, bedding, disease control and limiting the number of litters a female can have. Illegally bred dogs are likely to have incomplete or forged documents’. Councillor Shaun Horton, portfolio holder for community involvement and local partnerships said: “Anyone thinking of buying a puppy or a dog should check the legitimacy of the breeder. “Dog breeding can be a lucrative business and those unlicensed breeders who aim to make money will often cut corners and sacrifice animal welfare. “The law on dog breeding is very clear and is in place for two key reasons – to ensure a high

standard of welfare for animals and to give peace of mind to members of the public that they are buying from a reputable breeder. “Any breeders found operating without a licence are committing a criminal offence and could face prosecution or a fine.” The current dog breeding legislation is changing later this year with the aim of achieving the highest animal welfare standards. The proposals include a ban on the sale of puppies in pet shops, and measures to crack down on unscrupulous puppy breeders with tight new restrictions for selling pups online and showing puppies alongside their mother before a sale is made. The council has issued a checklist for people considering buying a dog: l Always ask to see the puppy with its mother and litter, along with the father, or a photo of the father. Good breeders will be happy to accommodate this. l Pups should not be sold if they are under 8 weeks of age. l Check the seller’s licence to

ensure the breeder is registered or contact the relevant breed societies.


Make sure the puppy or dog comes with the right documentation, such as Kennel Club registration , pet passport and pedigree papers, a vaccination card as well as advice on when further vaccinations are due


Ensure you are given written advice on feeding, worming and flea treatments as well as any information on diet.

l Ensure the pup has been microchipped before it is sold to you. Microchipping is something that the breeder of the puppies must take care of when the pup reaches 8 weeks of age and before the pups go to their new keepers. If the pup is not microchipped an offence is committed. You must immediately change the details of the microchip into your own name and address to avoid future problems. Anyone with information about any unlicensed dog breeders in the East Riding is asked to email:

Health & Wellbeing

Get Running! Good for your physical and mental wellbeing, running can lower the risk of serious illnesses such as heart disease. The benefits of regular aerobic exercise to help relieve stress and positively boost our mood as our bodies release endorphins has been well-documented. Some runners even claim the feeling is addictive! Why not see for yourself what running can do for you? Take your first steps today… BEFORE YOU START Running is a relatively inexpensive sport, but if there is one thing worth investing in it’s proper footwear. Specialist running shops will assess your style on a treadmill and match you with a suitable shoe.


SET A GOAL Having something to aim for is a brilliant way to stay motivated and give you a reason to improve. Start with a 5k fun run where there isn’t the pressure of a formal race, but enough of a challenge to make you train – most will reward you with a shiny new medal for your efforts. GET SUPPORT A running buddy can be great motivation and help keep you focused as you spur each other on. If you don’t have anyone to run with, find a local club that suits your needs – most will have sessions designed for new runners. If you would prefer to run alone, download an app such as C25K to use as your virtual coach. BUILD UP SLOWLY The key thing to remember is that it’s not a race. Well, it might be one day but for now you’re training your body to a new way of working. Always take time to warm up and down properly – it’s the most crucial part of your run. Slowly building up muscle and stamina will not only be better for your health but also give you a more holistic approach to your end goal. STAY MOTIVATED Try keeping a running diary or blogging about your experience to keep your mind on track – 20 per cent

of London Marathon runners kept a blog this year. As hard as it can seem to muster the enthusiasm for a run when the evening’s dull and damp or the telly schedule looks appealing, make the effort and you will be glad you did. STAY HYDRATED We all know the importance of H2O during exercise; make sure you drink plenty of water to replace valuable hydration lost through perspiration. Now, go, go, go...

THE WITCHES BREW Witch hazels are loved for their delicious perfumed blooms that light up the short cold days of winter and become the harbinger of Spring. At the dimmest point in the year, when life in the garden seems at its most still and inert, the witch hazel breaks its first buds.


The cinnamon-coloured beads, held in tight clusters up the stem, have been swelling since the foliage dropped in the autumn; now, they open like sea anemones awakening in rock pools once the tide has gone out. The tendrils of petal break bud, unscrunching themselves but not quite, so that each petal is crimped. They gather momentum as one catches up with the next until the whole bush is covered from top to bottom. For many the sight of this beguiling of winter flowering schrubs gets them out to see what else the garden has to offer. Witch-hazels prefer ground which is not chalky, but if you do possess alkaline soil you can still grow them in tubs and large pots on

the patio. In the garden they will eventually grow to 10ft by 10ft in a kind of loose shuttlecock shape, but in a container their progress is much slower and they will only put on about four to six inches a year. Their flowers – which are the real winter attraction – are ribbon-like spiders of yellow, orange or red, and if you cup your hand around them, breathe on them through your mouth and then inhale, you will detect the characteristic citrus fragrance which is sometimes hard to discern in cold weather. Better still, cut a sprig or two for a tiny pot or vase indoors and enjoy the flowers at close quarters, protected from the weather. When it comes to varieties, some prefer the paler yellows to the reds and oranges. Lovely as they are, these richer shades do not stand out as well as the lemon shades in the winter garden.

Ancient it may be, but Hamamelis x intermedia ‘Pallida’ remains a favourite. Pruning? Don’t even think of it. They need nothing other than the removal of any damaged wood (they are not at all prone to die-back) and the odd branch. The fading flowers are followed by coarse, hazel-like leaves, which have one fi nal trick up their sleeves. In autumn, they turn a rich shade of butter-yellow in the case of yellow-flowered varieties, and orange and red to match the flowers of ‘Jelena’ and ‘Diane’. Witch hazel (Hamamelis virginiana) has long been known to have amazing properties for healing swellings and bruises. Now it is used in deodorants, pile cures, to clear spotty skin, remove bags under the eyes and much more. The ‘magic water’ was made by coppicing the whole plant and

Gardening boiling up the bark, stems leaves and wood and then distilling it. It is still a natural product and, given its properties to soothe, one that should be in every Witch hazels are loved for their delicious perfumed blooms that light up the short cold days of winter and become the harbinger of spring gardener’s cupboard. Their common name is partly due to the resemblance of their leaves to the common hazel of which they are no relation and partly from the Old English ‘wice’ as in wych elm, which means pliable or bendy and relates to their twigs and young branches. These were also used for divining water. Some gardeners might worry about their size as they can grow to small trees, but they can easily be maintained at a far smaller size. This is done by cutting back the previous year’s growth to two buds after flowering every year once established. They will also tolerate more dramatic renovation pruning. There are a bewildering number of varieties to choose from, but not so many that stand out from the crowd. It is worth seeking out the best varieties of H.mollis if you want a gold-flowered witch hazel. These are still the most gloriously scented, but look for

a named variety such as H.mollis ‘Boskoop’ or H. ’Jermyns Gold’, as they can be variable. H.mollis ‘Pallida’, a marvellous sulphuryellow, now belongs with the group which offer the best range of colours. The true witch hazel H. virginiana will bloom with autumn foliage in October and November, but it is a subtle shrub and true gardeners’ favourite. So if you look ahead to winters to come imagine yourself right now being able to glance at a blaze of flower out there in the grey of January and February. You may in a few years have invested enough time in being able to bring a sprig inside to remind you to get out there into the cold. The wait will be worth it.

OUR FIVE TOP PICKS Hamamelis × intermedia ‘Diane’ AGM: The finest red flowered witch hazel. It has a long flowering period throughout midwinter and is lightly scented. H. × intermedia ‘Jelena’ AGM: One of the best cultivars, coppery orange flowers appear in early to mid-winter but has little or no scent. H. × intermedia ‘Pallida’: Thought to be the best sulphuryellow cultivar for garden use.

H. mollis ‘Wisley Supreme’: Flowering in January and has a good scent and bright yellow flowers. H. virginiana: Bears yellow, scented flowers in mid-late autumn, rather than in winter. Traditionally witch hazels have always been planted in a woodland type garden with dappled shade. They will however grow quite happily in the open and fl owering is more profuse in this situation. Avoid frost pockets if at all possible as witch hazels are susceptible to damage by late spring frosts, particularly young plants.
