Hello Readers Welcome to the February edition of your DNfourteen Magazine. This month we have our special Spring Wedding feature full of tips and advice for anyone who is planning a wedding. We will also be organising the Beverley Minster Wedding Fair, (the largest wedding fair in East Yorkshire) which is being held on Saturday 1st March 2014 so if you need further assistance, why not pop along to this free event. The wedding fair has two bridal fashion shows with a great mix of the latest styles and some traditional favourites as well. In this issue we also take a look at what can be done in the garden this month, everything from hopefully not having to keep the snow off your plants, taking cuttings, cleaning the pond etc.. etc.. Henry Priestman launches his new album very shortly here in the East Riding (see page 17) and I can recommend him as a live artist and urge anyone who has not seen him to do so.. he is amazing!!! If you are feeling lucky why not take a moment and enter our two great competitions. Do you fancy winning free tickets to see Premier League Darts at the Motorpoint Arena in Sheffield or how about tickets to see ‘Keep it Cash’, Europe’s number one Johnny Cash tribute band who will be performing at Beverley Minster on Friday 14th March 2014. Just for fun we have a great puzzle page, so grab yourself a coffee and a pen and see how well you can do! Until then, keep safe and warm… Kind regards,

Jane Gough Editor

SPRING WEDDINGS FEATURE

Everybody loves a great wedding and it is every girls dream day so we have put together some little words of advice as well as the best wedding suppliers in the East Yorkshire area to help you realise your dreams. It’s NOT all about the perfect wedding

Write down all the things you need to spend cash on on a different piece of card – from cakes to cars, rings to registry office fees – always keeping in mind that you don’t need to stick to convention or have everything your peers tell you you “need”.

Discuss what’s most important to both of you. You may fancy a funky themed wedding cake, but would you prefer a honeymoon abroad? Or a professional photographer? Remember, venue costs are likely to be about one third to One disgruntled father told us: “I asked my daughter what half of your budget. her budget was. She asked me, ‘Dad, how can I work out Being aware of how you can trade one item for another my budget until I know what I want?’” helps you see how far your budgeted cash will go. If it So, instead, ask “what can we afford to spend on our doesn’t go as far as you want, you need to change your list wedding?” Then work out how to have the best do possible - but not your budget. within that budget. A picnic in a park with close friends The end result may be that you can’t afford the wedding can be just as magical as a blingy bash for 300. Don’t let the wedding ruin your marriage Play the wedding prioritisation game Before we get too far into this, and you skip straight to this Once you know your budget, the aim’s to work out how guide’s bargain-grabbing section, it really is worth pausing much you can actually afford to spend on different areas to think about the financial effect of your celebration. and prioritise what’s important to YOU. Too many work through a wanna-have list – a film star dress, flowing champagne, platinum rings, a five-star honeymoon. Only then, they ask how they’ll pay for it.

Spring Wedding Feature Countdown to Christmas

As our accountant says, “While a wedding is a wonderful dream day, it’s important to remember one of the biggest causes of divorce is debt and financial worries.

“If the cost of your wedding leaves you financially crippled and in debt for most of your married life, it’s a pointless waste.” Pick an unusual day and season The venue usually creates the biggest dent in your budget. So get this right and you’ll be on to a budget bash winner.

DNfourteen February 2014 DNfourteen Dec 2013 / Jan 2014

Top questions to ask venues

Some venues have more hidden charges than Ryanair - one of my friends had to pay extra to hire a cake knife. So before booking, pose as many questions as possible and get important answers in writing. Here are some of the key questions to ask before signing - hopefully they’ll help you find a suitable but cheap wedding venue:

• How much is corkage? • Does the price include VAT? Pick an unpopular day. Friday or Sundays can cut the cost • Are there any extra staff costs? of the reception venue by up to half - Mondays, Tuesdays • Is there a minimum headcount or charge per person? and Wednesdays by even more. Discounts are often • Is the cloakroom free? available for photographers, florists and ceremonies too. • Are there extra costs for lighting? Of course, fewer guests may be able to attend if you pick a • Is there a marquee hire charge? • Is service included? weekday – perhaps another way to keep costs down. • Any charge for tables, crockery, glasses, linen or chairs? Major savings are possible on winter weddings due to fewer • Will we get exclusive use or are there other weddings bookings. DNfourteens own Jane cut the cost of her venue • there on the same day? by over a third by getting married in November. • Do they give reduced room rates for your guests?

Spring Wedding Feature

DNfourteen February 2014

If your dress has laces or buttons, ask a friend to come and help you dress. Often a bridesmaid or family member will be there for bridal preparations, but it is likely that they may also have false nails for the occasion. If you have a friend present who isn’t in the bridal party they will be able to help the bride to get dressed.

Bridal tips When you’re having your hair styled on your wedding day, wear a shirt. Many brides wear a t-shirt, then struggle to get it over their newly coiffeured head. If you wear a shirt it can be unbuttoned and will not damage your hairdo. If you have a dress that goes over your head, get a pillow case or a silk underskirt to put over your head first. This way your dress will slide on more easily with damaging hair or getting any make-up on it. Remove labels on the underside of shoes – a very fiddly and time-consuming job that is best sorted in advance.

Please mention

Dress the bride first. Lots of people dress the bride last so everyone is ready to help, but if plans start to run behind it will be the bride who is in a rush to get dressed. If you dress the bride first she can get ready at her own pace, feel relaxed and have time to make any adjustments to her dress for maximum comfort. It is not the bride’s job to dress the bridesmaids or any children – make sure you have plenty of helpers to do this so that she can enjoy her wedding day. Gentlemen – you need to plan ahead! This may seem obvious, but remember your socks! Far too many grooms get married without socks and it can sometimes be seen on photographs. If you usually have your head shaven don’t do it on the

FOR LUXURY WEDDING CARS CALL US FREE ON: 0800 211 82 78 You should also take into account the kind of wedding you plan to have. A relaxed, casual wedding on a beach will require a very different style of dress to a formal evening affair. Your First Dance Some couples love the idea of performing a well-practiced routine in front of their wedding guests; others are terrified at the thought. Whether you are at one of these extremes or somewhere in between, the perfect first dance can be yours. Before anything else you need to choose ‘your song’. Most couples pick first-dance music that is special to them: perhaps a song they listened to when they first met, or a romantic ditty that reflects their feelings for each other. Other choices could be music that fits with the theme of your wedding, or perhaps a lighthearted tune that mirrors your personalities and will make your wedding guests chuckle. There’s nothing wrong with a funny first dance! Before you make your final choice of first dance song, be sure to listen to – and preferably also read – the words of the song. It’s amazing how many romantic-sounding songs turn out to be less appropriate than you might think. For example, couples have been known to choose ‘Every Breath You Take’ by The Police – allegedly about a stalker – or ‘Perfect Day’ by Lou Reed, about the singer’s heroin habit. Chat to your wedding DJ. If you are having a DJ play your first dance, make sure they have the song in their collection. This should be discussed well in advance, as should the rest of the evening’s play list. Most of all, congratulations and enjoy the day together.

Gardening Jobs to do in February Did your Ice plant (sedum spectabile) flop? Every so often a plant decides that it cannot support it’s long stems, so it flops outwards. This leaves your plant looking rather ugly. To avoid this next season, dig him up and replant about six plants in the same spot ,but add some compost first . Next Autumn you will have a plant on the same scale as the last and one that stays upright. Clear Snow Brush heavy snow off trees shrubs and conifers with a broom to prevent branches getting damaged. Split & Divide Perennials Dig up, divide and re-plant perennial plants that have been undisturbed for a few years . This will encourage healthy growth and encourage them to produce more and better blooms. Get Planting It may be getting cold in the air, but the soil is still retaining some warmth. So it’s a good time to plant that hedge you have always wanted or shrubs and trees. Get rid of your old roses and replace with new. The warmth in the soil means good strong root growth , so get them in now before heavy snow comes along and the soil freezes. You can plant out now, camellias, azaleas, conifers, shrubs, roses, rhododendrons, trees, plants and trees on display outside at garden centres are usually ones you can plant now, but its always best to check a member of staff. Propagation Preparation - Before it’s time to sow By now you will be itching to get sowing seeds, and getting stuck into the greenhouse and the garden. Well, patience is a virtue! It won’t be long before you are starting off your sweet peas, and broad beans, but for now, preparation is the key!!! Thinking of seeding a new lawn in spring? If you’re thinking of seeding a new lawn in spring then you need to be preparing the ground now. Dig the area over making sure you remove all perennial weeds. Leave the soil clumpy and rough as the weather will break this down.

any leaves off, as in damp weather, they can harbour fungus underneath, and you end up with a yellow lawn. Grapevines Prune vines while they are still dormant. Cut off last years canes which fruited and tie down the new ones. Move potted shrubs into greenhouse Shrubs in containers can suffer from root death and dehydration in freezing weather. Move them into a unheated greenhouse. Take cuttings Propagate shrubs & perennials by taking hardwood or root cuttings.

Mushrooms and toad stools on the lawn Mushrooms and toad stools are a pest, some gardeners say. Saying that, some gardeners like to see them. If you don’t want them, brush them off or use the mower. However, leave them and bring a bit of magic to you’re garden, you may even see a fairy!

Lest we forget

The Pond Clear out all fallen leafs and twigs. Place thin netting over pond if possible . If leaves are left to rot in the pond, dangerous gases build up and could kill any fish you have. Remove pumps ,fountains and filters and give them a good clean, then put away till next year. Put a ball in the pond, this leaves an open area on the surface so gases can escape if the pond gets iced up for sometime. Also fish can get oxygen.

Scarify- Spike the lawn Unless your lawn is very new, scarify and spike now. Clear

All About You

DNfourteen February 2014

Squirrels know a good thing!

Apart from Christmas time and viewing television programmes on nature showing squirrels eating nuts, nuts as a food do not feature in our lives very often. More is the pity for medical studies have shown that by eating nuts we can protect ourselves against all kinds of illness and diseases. Various studies suggests that people who eat a handful of nuts every day live longer than those who do not eat them at all. Studies have come to this conclusion after analysing data on nearly 120,000 people collected over 30 years. They also showed that the reduction in risk of death by eating nuts once a week was linked to an 11% reduction, two to four times a week to a 13% reduction, five to six times a week to a 15% reduction, and seven or more times a week, to a 20% reduction. Results of studies over the years have also found that people who eat nuts regularly tended to be slimmer than those who do not eat nuts putting to bed the idea that eating nuts leads to weight gain. Neither is eating nuts related to causes of death as studies show a reduction of 29% in deaths from heart disease and a significant reduction of 11% in the risk of dying from cancer. Previous studies have also shown links between eating nuts and lower risk for many diseases, including heart disease, type 2 diabetes, gallstones, colon cancer and diverticulitis. Eating lots of nuts has also been associated with lower cholesterol, reductions in inflammation, oxidative stress, body fat and insulin resistance. Studies have also found that the reduced risk of death was similar for both nuts that grow on trees, such as cashews and Brazils, and peanuts, which grow under the ground. Other types of tree nut include almonds, hazelnuts, macadamias, pecans, pine nuts, pistachios and walnuts. And while some small studies have linked higher nut consumption to lower death from all causes in certain populations, none has examined the effect in a large population in such detail over a long time. In the meantime, darling, pass the nut bowl.

Local History

DNfourteen February 2014

The Founding of Goole Docks Research by the Marshland Local History Group came across an Admiral Frank Sotheron, who was a major land owner in the Marshland area during the early 19th century. As well as owning land in the Marshland he also inherited, from his grandfather, the Sotheron land surrounding Hook and the area now known as Goole.

Admiral Frank Sotheron

Around the 1820’s Sotheron was in discussion with the Aire and Calder Navigation Company who needed his land for the building of their new canal that was to terminate near his estate at Hook and the then small village of Goole. In one of his private diaries he mentions riding into Goole to see the new large dock basin being cut. Admiral Sotheron had joined the navy at the tender age of nine. At the age of thirteen as a midshipman,

he was to fight at one of the bloodiest battles in naval history on board HMS Arethusa. In 1801

he was to dine with Kings, Emperors and Princes when having the task of transporting the British Ambassador to St. Petersburg. In his private papers are letters to and from Admiral Lord Horatio Nelson under who’s command Sotheron was ordered to protect the King and Queen of Naples. If you visit Goole today you will find street names connected with his family such as Sotheron Street, Sutton Street and Estcourt Street. In fact the Lowther Hotel is built on the site of one of Sotheron’s Tenant farms. celebrating 10 years in business

Love Is In The Air

VALENTINES...

DNfourteen February 2014

In 1797, a British publisher issued The Young Man’s Valentine Writer, which contained scores of suggested sentimental verses for the young lover unable to compose his own. Printers had already begun producing a limited number of cards with verses and sketches, called “mechanical valentines,” and a reduction in postal rates in the next century ushered in the less personal but easier practice of mailing Valentines. That, in turn, made it possible for the first time to exchange cards anonymously, which is taken as the reason for the sudden appearance of racy verse in an era otherwise prudishly Victorian. Paper Valentines became so popular in England in the early 19th century that they were assembled in factories. Fancy Valentines were made with real lace and ribbons, with paper lace introduced in the mid-19th century. The reinvention of Saint Valentine’s Day in the 1840s has been traced by Leigh Eric Schmidt. As a writer in Graham’s American Monthly observed in 1849, “Saint Valentine’s Day... is becoming, nay it has become, a national holyday.” The Laura Seddon Greeting Card Collection from the Manchester Metropolitan University gathers 450 Valentine’s Day cards dating from the early nineteenth century, printed by the major publishers of the day.

A Grumpy Old Man Writes

By Graham Kinnersley, retired naval officer, father, husband and wry observer of modern day life.

An Apple for Teacher My favourite teachers when I went to school in the 1950’s was ‘Tubby’ O’Brien, the English master: I loved his English lessons. A big cuddly sought of man who had a grandfather figure about him, or a favourite uncle, his one pet hate was the use of the word ‘nice’. “Don’t let me hear you use that word boy. There are plenty of adjectives you could use instead of that word.” he would say. He called everybody ‘boy’ and even ten years later soon after I left the Merchant Navy he used it when addressing me at an Old Boys Association dinner. The occasion was the first time I had attended such a dinner since leaving school, my leaves never corresponding with this annual dinner. On entering the room where the dinner was to take place I saw Tubby O’Brien talking to some of the other ‘Old Boys.’ Now retired, yet, it seemed to me, wearing the same rust coloured and crumbled suit he was famous for, but without his black gown, I approached him and waited for a suitable opportunity to speak to him. When it came I said: “Good evening, Sir, do you remember me.?” “ Who are you boy?” he enquired, looking at me over the top of his glasses. Boy! I was twenty-six at this time! “My name is Kinnersley, Sir” “Didnít you go to sea, boy?” “Yes, Sir!” “What happened to you, boy?” “I became senior navigating officer of the shipping line, Sir.” “Hm,” he muttered, and then added: “I always said no good would come of you, boy!” He had a way with the English language that man! Nice! Innit!
