STOP The Badger Cull The presenter of the BBC’s Autumnwatch said it was “both sad and shameful” that the cull of around 5,000 badgers in West Somerset and West Gloucestershire is going ahead. Farmers insist the cull will stop the animals spreading the cattle disease bovine tuberculosis (bTB). Trained marksmen, often the farmers themselves, will shoot up to 80 badgers a night. But Mr Packham said movement of cattle is spreading the disease and killing badgers will just spread bTB further as it forces the wildlife to move around more. “It is both sad and shameful that when night falls and the setts of southern England stir their gentle folk will be needlessly slaughtered. That in spite of science and public will the wrath of ignorance will further bloody and bleed our countryside of its riches of life. That brutalist thugs, liars and frauds will destroy our wildlife and dishonour our nations reputation as conservationists and animal lovers,” he said.

5,500 badgers are expected to be killed in the two cull zones over the six week cull. Adrian Coward, Chairman of the Somerset Badger Group, said that the cull will cost over £5 million over its four year trial period and fail to stop the spread of bTB. “This is not a mini trial, this is mass slaughter,” he said. Protest groups were also out on “wounded badger patrols” in Gloucestershire to show their concern for wildlife. They fear that the method of “free shooting” badgers at night with high velocity rifles could lead to injury rates of up to 30 per cent. More extreme animal rights activists are threatening to disrupt the cull by being present at setts where shooting is going on so that marksmen cannot continue for “health and safety reasons”. Owen Paterson, the Environment Secretary, said the cull must be part of limiting the spread of bovine TB, that kills around 30,000 cattle and costs the taxpayer £100m every year. The RSPCA say “This cull is a national disgrace and it could soon be coming to an area near you. The RSPCA will fight this mindless slaughter every step of the way, but we need your help...” Please register your support at:

How To Improve The Value Of Your Home Whether you’re looking to sell your home or you just want to be more appreciative of the space you live in, people are always looking for ways to increase the value of their homes. A lot of people think that they will need to take some kind of drastic action if they’re to succeed in raising the value of their home but this isn’t the case and you can actually successfully increase the value of your property without any real disruption to your life.

Exterior The exterior is the first and most basic change that you can make to your home. If someone comes to see your home as a prospective buyer or even if they’re just walking passed it on the street then you’ll want to make a good impression – you won’t want to make a bad impression anyway. Whenever someone looks at the exterior of your home – especially if they’re potential buyers – they’ll be judging whether or not they feel that it’s worth the cost. If you make a good first impression then this will have a good effect on the rest of the viewing because remember no matter how nice your home is inside, if the exterior makes a bad impression on them then they know that it’ll have a negative impact on other people when they come to visit their new home. Rather than losing a sale because of the way that the exterior of your home looks spend some time on your front garden removing weeds, fixing the gate and if necessary adding a new coat of paint to your front door, fence and window ledges.
 Space Space is the one thing that everyone loves. If you’re planning on staying in your house then you’ll still probably say that you could do with more space and if you’re planning on putting your house on the market then every buyer will be looking for space. Whether you’ve got a large home or you’re limited to a small cottage really doesn’t matter because whoever comes to see it will always say that they could do with more space which is why optical illusion is so important. Adding light to your home will instantly make it look so much bigger, forget the creation of mood with dark, ambient colours, when looking at a new home people like to see a blank canvas so that they can imagine their own possessions in there.

Decorate When people first move into their home they’re usually really keen to decorate and put their own personality into the property. However after a few years all decorating will look dull and drab as the paint starts to flake, marks appear on the walls and the style isn’t on trend anymore. If you’re planning to sell your home then fresh paint and colours throughout your home are essential but even if you’re not selling you should still be willing to decorate every now and again in order to rekindle the love that you



In order to give your living space an extension either paint it a light, neutral colour – if you’re planning on selling – or add some large, bright artificial lights to dark rooms if you want it to feel like you have a lot more space than you really do. Another great way to do this is to add lighter coloured furniture to dark rooms for example a white sofa or light woods. A huge trend nowadays is oversized furniture but this is something you should definitely avoid if you’re trying to create the illusion of more space.

have for your property.

If you plan on living in your home for a number of years then it’s essential that you like what you have to look at, not only to keep yourself happy and content but also so that you allow yourself to feel proud whenever people come to visit your home.

 Top Tip: Painting your interior doors black will instantly bring a high class, sophisticated look to your home which will have a great impact on visitors.
 Flooring The flooring in your home is just as important as the décor because this also wears out over time. If you have carpets then you’ll have to keep a much closer eye on these than you do wooden or laminate floors as they’ll begin to show their age much sooner, especially in high traffic areas. If it’s time you invested in some new flooring but think that wooden floors and laminate are too cold and characterless then consider covering your new, plush carpet with a rug in order to prevent wear and tear quite so quickly.
 Furniture Furniture and accessories won’t actually bump up the price of your home but they can make it look much more expensive meaning people will perceive it to be worth more. Large cushions are all in at the moment so throw away any flat, lifeless cushions and replace them with huge, plump alternatives. A great trick is to stuff a large cushion into a smaller case as this will make your seating area look especially plush.
Large and interesting light fittings are another great way to bring expense to your home. Glass light fittings are especially popular because although they don’t cost a lot they really do look expensive.

Dragons’ Den Winners YogaBellies come to Hull and Beverley The women’s yoga franchise YogaBellies®, owned by Cheryl MacDonald and her husband Mike, wowed the Dragons on this week’s episode of Dragons’ Den. Using their unique yogic techniques, YogaBellies® convinced the Dragons that YogaBellies® was an organization to be reckoned with and received an offer of £50,000 from Duncan Bannatyne. Now YogaBellies® is coming to Hull and Beverley. Cheryl, a busy mum and author of the recently published Birth ROCKS, started YogaBellies after the birth of her son three years ago and now has over 80 YogaBellies® franchisees internationally. YogaBellies® teachers are given complete training in the unique YogaBellies® techniques and run their own socially-conscious YogaBellies® business, offering the classes in their local area. Pam Medhurst is excited to be part of YogaBellies® and to be now offering YogaBellies® classes in Hull and Beverley. Pam Medhurst says: “I love being part of YogaBellies® and really value what our sessions can bring to women, babies and children. Our classes are about so much more than just exercise, we use authentic yogic techniques in a fun, non-threatening way. The majority of people who come to YogaBellies® classes are completely new to Yoga and we have a really great community of women helping women.”

Dragon Duncan Bannatyne offered YogaBellies® £50,000 investment for 35% of the company (going down to 20% after two years) admitting “this is a no brainer for me”. Deborah Meaden also showed a great interest in the company but felt that Duncan had better resources to offer YogaBellies® as a whole. The Bannatyne Group and YogaBellies® are currently decided which is the best way for the company to progress and grow. Pam Medhurst is now offering YogaBellies® classes in Hull on Monday evening and Beverley, Tuesday evening and can be contacted on or 07966 091513

Steps you can take to prevent breast cancer Genesis Breast Cancer Prevention is a charity dedicated to the prediction and prevention of breast cancer so that, step by step, 1 in 10 women affected becomes none in 10. Mr Lester Barr, breast cancer surgeon and chairman of the charity, offers advice on how to keep your risk as low as possible. Be Breast Aware Know how to check yourself, know about screening, and deal with any risk factors in your life. For breast changes to look out for visit Lose Some Weight Be as lean as possible without becoming underweight. Avoid processed foods high in sugar and fat. Eat more fruit, vegetables and wholegrains. Read the dietary advice on Genesis Breast Cancer Prevention’s website and Prevention Diet leaflet. Be Physically Active Aim for 30 minutes of exercise at least every day. This has a beneficial effect through your hormone balance as well as helping you to maintain a healthy weight. Drink Alcohol Sensibly Breast cancer risk rises the more you drink, so limit your intake to one alcoholic drink only per day. Minimise Hormones Aim to stop the contraceptive pill at around 30 years of age. Limit the use of HRT to a short time ‒ not continuously for years. Breast-feeding is protective and recommended for six months. Consider Gene Testing If several of your family members have had breast or ovarian cancer (or a mother or sister under 50) then ask your doctor if gene testing might be feasible. For those who carry a predisposing gene, you will be offered regular screening (perhaps using MR scanning). Preventive drugs like tamoxifen are also being researched, and techniques for preventive surgery are being improved. You should not have gene testing conducted without prior counselling. Make sure you discuss all these options thoroughly with your team. The Future... Genesis Breast Cancer Prevention is working on research to eliminate breast cancer step by step. By understanding all the risk factors, they can find ways of prevention and early diagnosis. This may not happen in an overnight miracle cure but, step by step, they can make things better for the next generation.

Make time for self examination...

Most cases of breast cancer are found by women noticing unusual changes, taking the initiative and visiting their doctor. The earlier breast cancer is found, the better the chance of beating it ‒ so you can see how important it is to make regular checks. It’s as simple as TLC...

TOUCH your breasts.

Can you feel anything unusual? LOOK for changes. Is there any change in shape or texture? CHECK anything unusual with your doctor. No one knows your body better than you and everyone will have their own way of touching and looking for changes ‒ there’s no special technique and you don’t need any training. It’s good to get into the habit of doing this regularly ‒ maybe when you’re in the bath or shower, or while getting dressed in the morning. You might prefer to do it while standing up or lying down. Either way, the important thing is to be familiar with how your breasts look and feel normally, so you notice anything unusual ‒ and remember to check the whole breast area, including your upper chest and armpits.

Ryan Mathie - Hull’s X-Factor Ryan Mathie has been busy working on Hull City Councils fleet of refuse collection trucks. The Hull Mechanic and Singer, Songwriter and Musician takes time out to chat with HullMag about the X-Factor and his life so far.

Hi Ryan, thank you for taking time out to do this interview in what is becoming a very busy time for you with the exposure and media interest that comes with being an X-Factor contestant. It comes as no surprise to followers of Hulls music scene that your determination and hard work that you have invested in your passion for music has brought you to this point. Ryan was voted through to the ‘Bootcamp’ stage of the show last weekend so let’s keep our fingers crossed he can go all the way. If you would like to see Ryan in Hull you can see him at the Prospect Centre Atrium on October 5th when he is one of the judges in the ‘Hook Factor’ Competition (Hull’s version of the X-Factor which is running to raise money for the local Charlie Hook Charity). Ryan says, “Please do support this great charity by attending the show and you will see some fantastic local talent at the same time.” As well as judging Ryan will also be doing a special live performance on the night. Q: So, what did it feel like when you watched yourself on the X-Factor? A: It was so crazy I couldn’t really believe it. Just the fact of knowing that my voice was heard by millions of viewers was just amazing. Q: Who has been your biggest influence in helping you achieve your goals to date? A: I think I owe that right to my family. Both my mums and my dad’s side. The love and support I’ve had from them all my whole life has made me who I am today. They always pushed me because they always believed in me. Q: Who are your musical heroes and why? A: To be honest I take my youth as a big reason I started music. Growing up I loved Westlife they were my favourites. As I got older I started to appreciate older music, the likes of the Beatles and Del Shannon. So I think I have too many idols to just pick one. Q: How does it feel knowing that the next generation of musicians in the city are now looking up to you? A: It is amazing because I am still just a normal guy and I appreciate all that everyone has done for me and I will always have time to help charities and sing with other young artists just like myself. Q: What would you say to encourage young musicians starting out in Hull and the surrounding area? A: Never give up that is my motto. If you love something with a passion just keep doing it. It’s not always going to be a smooth road but you can overcome obstacles and even now I still consider that I have a long way to go.

To Contact

Q: What is the best bit of advice you were given as a young musician and who gave you it? A: Don’t just sing music, live music and love music. This changed my perspective on my music career. I realised I don’t do it for money or fame, I do it because I love it, I do it because it makes me happy and I know it’s not just a job it’s a lifestyle. Now a few questions on a more personal level:


Q: What music do you listen to when relaxing and/or when you’re working? A: I love to listen to new artists. My favourite thing to do is look around for unsigned people like myself and check out their music. Hull has some great talent. Q: Away from music what would your perfect night/day out in Hull entail? A: My perfect night would be down the local to watch the rugby and then hit the town for a bit of dad dancing. Q: It’s a Saturday evening and you want to just unwind in front of the TV, so what is your favourite meal and favourite film. A: It has to be ‘Stand by Me’ with a pint of San Miguel and a meat feast pizza. Q: You have certainly helped put Hull back on the map, so where would you tell someone visiting the city for the first time they should visit? A: If you are visiting Hull make sure it’s for a few days as there are too many to mention. I love going to Warehouse 13 Bistro for a meal and a natter. It is gorgeous place with gorgeous food and gorgeous views - it’s my favourite. I am sure that I am speaking for the whole of Kingston upon Hull and East Yorkshire when I say that you have 100 per cent of our support and we wish you every success in the X-Factor and with your musical career. Sing Ryan sing.

Autumn Weddings Top Ten Wedding Planning Tips from recent Newlyweds You’re a planning bride: You’re constantly looking at top wedding blogs, pinning has become your second job, and your wedding coordinator is on speed dial (or, if you don’t have one, then you feel like you’re ready to become one). But you can never fully anticipate the wedding day until (gulp) it’s finally here.

That’s why we turned to recently married couples for their best advice. They’ve walked down the aisle, they’ve said “I Do” and have partied like crazy at their reception. Then, when all of the craziness calmed down and they returned from their honeymoons, they whispered their “best advice” to us...and we’re passing it down to you! 1. Take Your Time. “Matt and I planned our wedding for sixteen months, and it really helped to keep stress levels down. We got tons of stuff done early and had time to save for the things we really wanted. You only get to plan your wedding once, so make sure it is a fun time, not a stressful one!” - Claire and Matt

2. Be Present In Each Moment. “On your wedding day, soak up all the love, joy and bliss! Enjoy!” - Samantha and Edu 3. Do A First Look. “It was one of the best decisions we made during our wedding planning. Our photographer and videographer collaborated and found a secluded area, away from all the madness that was going on that morning; we got a moment to see each other for the first time. It allowed us to take a deep breath, let the moment sink in, feel all the emotion we were about to feel all day. No matter what you decide, the important thing is choosing what’s right for you as a couple and

not letting the day flash past.” - Leah and Kevin

sharing random dinosaur posts on our Facebook walls. We also ended up getting amazing wedding films, since it gave the cinematographers something really emotional to connect all of the pieces together. Cinematographers are storytellers, so having a unifying element to drive your love story will truly leave lasting impression in your wedding films.” - Frances and Christopher

7. Try Not To Stress (Even If It Seems Impossible). “Remember why you are getting married, and try to truly make it be an event about (and for) the both of you. Have faith in your vendors and photographer, and trust that they will do their job well! And once it’s happening, just go with it. One of my favorite memories is calling my dad after he walked me to the dock to meet Jim because he had my vows in his jacket pocket! Everyone laughed, and so did I. 4. Don’t Get Caught Up In “Perfection.” Even though our event was teeny-tiny, it still flew “This event is an expression of yourselves, but it’s by. Remember to take a few minutes alone with your not all you’ll ever be. It’s just the beginning! In fact, husband or wife. I’m so happy that our photographer some of the best moments were ones we didn’t plan Stacey suggested that we walk ahead of her while she for at all—like a fabulous photograph of my dress snapped pics, which ended up being a really sweet train all tangled up with leaves and dirt. Sure, it was time for us as brand-new newlyweds!” - Jules and Jim messy and not what you’re used to seeing in bridal magazines, but it was also honest and a truly joyful 8. Prioritise, Prioritise, Prioritise. moment that could easily have gone south if we’d “We wanted the whole day to be a celebration of the been uptight about things. Embrace the unexpected, rest of our lives. We wanted people to walk away and each others’ opinions, and don’t let an saying, ‘That was so much fun.’ And we were able to unattainable ideal sour the big picture: You’re in this accomplish that. Choose the few things that are really together, now and for the future.” - Kitty and Eddie important to you, like the photographer and DJ were to us, and then go from there. Be flexible on the other 5. Have Faith That All Of Your Efforts details and remember to have fun.” - Janet and Geoff Will Be Worth It. “Before my wedding, I remember my sister telling me 9. Accept That You Can’t Please that her wedding day was the BEST day of her life, Everyone. and she was so excited that I would soon be able to “You cannot make everyone happy, and trying to experience mine. When I was in the midst of planning accommodate others will just make the whole process my wedding, the long, daily to-do lists and the more daunting. This is your day; make it about you. It stress made me feel as if that day would never come. really is the only day that you will get that chance.”However, it eventually did! When it came, I tried my Millie and Simon best to savour every moment of the wedding day from the moment I got out of bed to the moment I walked 10. Be A Team Throughout The Entire out of my village church as a married woman and I’d Process. advise brides and grooms out there to do the same.” “No matter how well-intentioned, friends and family - Lesley and Myron will lend advice, opinions, and even objections to your decisions. It’s easy for you two to become divided. But 6. Share Something Personal And in the end, this is a celebration of your love and future Unique With Your Guests. together, and so every choice should be yours alone. “Reading from The Lovely Love Story was the best Keep your focus on what matters most, forget what decision we made for our wedding! Our guests you think you should or shouldn’t do, and go with couldn’t stop talking about how adorable and your heart. If you keep you two at the center of every memorable it was, and we still get a bunch of guests decision, it will be memorable.” - Janie and Nic

What to wear under your wedding dress There comes a point in a girl’s life where she has to admit she’s gone as far as she can on her own and call for help from a higher power. No, not God – serious underwear. I’ve never been very good at “undies” (as my mum calls them). Growing up in the Maud household, the two main criteria for pants was that they: 
a) could be bought in bulk, 
and b) came from our favourite stall at Trinity Market, Hull. As I got older, I still couldn’t see the point in nice pants. Probably because I was one Mint Aero away from Shrek…. When you hate how you look in them, why bother buying nice ones? That’s wasting the Cider Fund. But I’m a bit thinner now, and even a useless bride like me knows that wedding day undies are A Big Deal. They need to be invisible under your dress. Walk the wobbly line between ‘sexy’ and ‘proper’. Church-appropriate (just in case God really is omnipresent). And – most importantly – suck you in as much as humanly possible. We’re talking a waist even Christina Hendricks would throw a bit of girl-hate at. Despite spending more time with Jody the trainer than Mr Maud-To-Be, I still have a bit of a wobbly belly. I’m at peace with that (ish). It’s what comes of waiting ‘til the age of 34 before you attempt a stomach crunch. However no one needs to see it. And it certainly will not be poking through The Dress.
Here’s what I decided on…. ...WHAT KATIE DID
 This label makes beautiful vintage inspired lingerie. Think patterns from the ‘40s and ‘50s adapted to suit modern women. The lady in the shop (enviable eyeliner) somehow crowbarred me into a Sophia Corset. It gave me the posture of Marilyn Monroe. It pushed what little boobs I have to somewhere they’ve never lived before. It made me feel like investing in some serious red lipstick. It gave me a 26 INCH WAIST. Yes TWENTY SIX INCHES. It was £139.50. Sod the honeymoon – I bought it on the spot and on the wedding night my new hubby was over the moon with my choice!!

NEW DATE: Saturday 19th October 11am - 3pm • Free Entry • 60+ Stands Vintage Bridalwear Fashion Show

Make Your Venue Budget Stretch The wedding reception will account for the vast majority of your budget, so keeping a clear head when booking your venue is essential, but don’t assume that means you can’t have the castle, hotel or country house of your dreams. Follow our five point plan for maximising venue value: 1. If the initial quote looks to be beyond your budget, ask about prices for a Friday event. Most friends and family will be happy to take a day off work and extend their weekend, and you can often save 10% from the overall bill.




2. If you’re planning a pre-wedding dinner, or postwedding lunch with family members, ask if the venue can host these too. The higher your spend, the greater your bargaining power.

Let us make your special day perfect. We understand that making so many decisions on your big day can be a daunting task. That’s why we created our little booklet which offers complete, costed packages to use as a starting point, so you can talk to us about tailoring every little detail until you have created the wedding of your dreams, we can even host the ceremony for you.

3. Choose a venue where you are happy with the table linen, crockery and in-house caterers. Hiring in alternatives will add considerably to your cost. 4. Ask about all inclusive packages which include the cake, flowers, favours and entertainment. Although less personal, these can provide great value for money. 5. Skip a course. Will your guests need a starter if they have had canapes? Can your wedding cake be served in place of dessert? Will all your guests want coffee at the end of the meal or can it just be served to those that request it, and charged accordingly?

Please remember to mention

At The Old Mill we pride ourselves on creating the event you always dreamed of, whatever your taste, whatever your budget.

Get a FREE, energy-efficient boiler with Humber Energy Get a FREE, energy-efficient boiler with Humber Energy Low income households in Hull could be eligible for a free, energy-efficient replacement boiler under the government funded ECO scheme, provided by local green energy specialists Humber Energy. The offer is open to both homeowners and private tenants who currently have an old and inefficient boiler that needs replacing. Those eligible include households with an income of less than £15,860, and those who receive income-related benefits like Pension Credits, income support and Job Seekers Allowance. The ECO Free Boilers programme has been set up by the government to help reduce carbon emissions and help to combat fuel poverty. Typically, households eligible for a free boiler under the scheme will save hundreds of pounds each year, as Joanne Jenkinson, Director at Humber Energy, explains: “Boilers account for around 60% of the average energy bills, and having an energy-efficient model provides significant yearly savings. There is only a limited amount of funding available under the ECO scheme, so households that want to receive their free boiler should act quickly before it comes to an end. “We’ll come to your home at a time that suits you to make sure you’re eligible for funding, then replace your old boiler with a free ‘A’ rated Vailant boiler that comes with a 2 year warranty, so you can start saving money straight away.” Those looking to apply for a free boiler can check to see if they qualify at or by phoning Humber Energy on 01482 845840.

Hull Foodbank: echoes of wartime shortage With echoes of the food shortage of World War Two abounding as this country faces hard economic times, many of us would never have believed in seeing people short of food ever again because they have little or no money to pay for it! Yet right across the country, including Hull, where 60,000 people live below the poverty line, volunteers are setting up Foodbanks from which anybody can draw food supplies which have been donated by members of the public, supermarkets and businesses. These donations can consist of money, non-perishable food or tokens and coupons.

Foodbanks invite shoppers, when doing the weekly shop, to pop an extra item or two into their shopping basket to donate to the Foodbank. Currently the Hull foodbank provides a minimum of three days emergency food and support to local people in crisis. These gifts of food together with time given by volunteers to distribute the food, or funds help stop local people going hungry. Volunteers sort the food to check that it is in date and pack it into boxes ready to be given to people in need. We couldn’t do what we do without the help of volunteers from across the community. Whether as one-off gifts of food, or regular gifts of money by way of a standing order, we will appreciate whatever you can give, big or small. You can give online through www.hullfoodbank. or please send cheques to Hull Foodbank, Jubilee Central, King Edward Street, Hull. HU1 3SQ. Why not bring your donation to the Foodbank itself to see the work we do on behalf of the community in general. Please make cheques payable to Hull Foodbank. You can help us make your gift go further by filling out a Gift Aid Form if you are a UK taxpayer, thank you! The Hull Foodbank works with a range of professions such as doctors, health visitors, social workers, family support projects and the police who identify people in crisis and issue them with a foodbank voucher for emergency food. Volunteers also point people requiring

assistance to agencies able to solve longer-term problems. Meanwhile could you start a Foodbank collection point at your local church or school: after all, we are told we are all in this together, whatever your politics! So please help! Give food We love donations of in-date, non-perishable food items. Download a foodbank shopping list to see what we need. Please bring any food donations to the foodbank during our opening hours. Want to help even more? Could you start a foodbank collection point at your work, school or church?

Volunteer We are currently looking for our first team to start volunteering. We have various roles: • Warehouse Operators - sorting the food collected ready for distribution • Greeters - welcoming all clients and agency workers into the distribution centre • Hospitality Volunteers - to check voucher details with the client • Signposter - inform, ecourage and empower clients to connect with the wider community for support • Food Drivers - Helping deliver our food from collections to the warehouse • Supermarket Collectors - explaining Hull Foodbank to Supermarket Customers and collecting the food they have donated If you would like to be considered for any of these roles please contact the Office. Fundraise With your friends, in the office, at school, as a family, or just by yourself... there are so many fun ways to support the foodbank. Check out our fundraising pack for a few ideas to get you started plus and top tips on how to make your fundraising a success. Become a partner If you are a company that shares our belief that no-one should go hungry in our local area, we’d love you to work with us. There are many ways to get involved, from volunteering as a team building activity to sharing your expertise. We will work with you to create bespoke partnership programmes that are mutually beneficial and effective. To find out more about getting involved please contact us. Thank you!

Eight (8) generously.

1. Peel and slice the apples. Slowly melt the 25g of butter or margarine in a large saucepan. Once melted add the sugar and stir – add the apples and continue to mix on a low heat, coating the apples in the mixture for five minutes. *Be careful not to let the apples burn! 2.

Cream the butter and sugar together before beating in the lightly whisked eggs with a tablespoon of flour. 4. Add the cinnamon and mix in with another tablespoon of flour. Then fold in your remaining flour. 5. Pour half of the cake mixture into the prepared tin and place half of the pre prepared apples on top of the mixture. Add the rest of the mixture and top with the remaining apples. 6. Bake on the middle shelf of the oven for 1 ½ hours – until golden and springy to the touch! 7. Leave to cool before serving with lashings of cream or custard.


Jessica Scrumptious Hi, I’m Jessica Scrumptious – a local lass with a passion for sugar, spice and all things nice! I love sweet treats! Actually I love food in general and that’s why I spend all of my time – outside of work that is – baking and creating and cooking and dreaming of cakes, cupcakes and moreish morsels! I first started baking about 3 years ago; I find it relaxing and calming – after a hectic day at work I would come home and hit the kitchen; dreaming up new recipes and generally going barmy in the kitchen! I love it! After a while of baking for workmates, feeding my friends and giving cake to all my neighbours; one of them suggested I started to bake for business – I never thought that my little passion would turn into a real life thing I could do as a career! And so Scrumptious by Jessica was born! Its been a slow and steady climb up and I have a way to go yet but I am dreaming big and baking bigger so hopefully sometime soon I can one day be a full-time kitchenista! Much love and cakey kisses and enjoy the Apple Cake JS xxx

Reliant Robin named as worst British car. The Reliant Robin has been named the worst British car of all time, according to a new survey. The three-wheeled car, which has only remained in the public consciousness thanks to Only Fools and Horses, has topped the poll for its lack of motoring prowess.

‘Nemesis’ electric car breaks UK land-speed record near York A battery-powered car has broken the UK land-speed record for electric vehicles at Elvington airfield near York, its makers have said. The Nemesis, a heavily-modified Lotus Exige which was originally bought off eBay, clocked an average speed of 151.6mph (244km/h). The car was designed and built by a team of British motorsport engineers in Norfolk, and driven by estate agent Nick Ponting, 21, from Gloucestershire.

For almost as long as I can remember it has been an ambition of mine to drive on America’s famous Route 66 which spanned the United States from Chicago, Illinois, to Santa Monica in California. As I drive around Hull and the East Riding I

it became apparant that short of a lottery win I would be resigned to reading books about the ‘Mother Road’ and watching documentaries on television to get my Route 66 kicks. Much of the original road is gone now, with many of the route’s towns bypassed by a modern interstate road, but in many places, the spirit of Route 66 lives on. A book was compiled to help anyone travelling the ‘Mother Road’ often dream about what such a road trip discover those hidden gems along the would involve and the people and places I route which most people pass by without would meet and see. Listening to the song even realising. Shops where time has stood of the same name which was made famous still, abandoned towns, curious statues by Chuck Berry; and covered by too many and bizarre museums, they are all part other artistes to recount, all the places of the hidden Route 66 experience, and have a familiarity to them like Flagstaff, with the help of this book, you should be Arizona et al. one step closer to finding them. It is well Whilst on my honeymoon a few years written and illustrated with wonderfully back I read the Billy Connelly book that atmospheric shots that make this a book accompanied his Route 66 TV show and that’s difficult to put down. This latest was again fired up about going to do the edition is in fact a compilation of sorts, as trip myself. However, when I finally smelt it combines author Russ Olsen’s successful the coffee and looked at my bank balance Route 66 Lost & Found volumes 1 and 2

and adds more than 50 new sites along the route which were not included in those two editions. All of the sites featured, more than 200 in all, are re-ordered from Illinois to California to provide a continuous journey along 66. The maps included in the previous two volumes are updated to feature the locations of the new sites included here.

EAST YORKSHIRE BUSINESS EXPO ‘THE PLACE TO DO BUSINESS’ Despite the ongoing recession and the state of the economy, businesses in and around East Yorkshire are once again showing that there is still plenty of business to be done, by showcasing their products and services at this years’ East Yorkshire Business Expo. The event, now in its sixth year, will take place on

Wednesday 9th October at Brantingham Park,

Jane Gough, Director of Dalton Spire Ltd, organiser of the event, says she is delighted at the response they have had from businesses that are eager to exhibit at this years’ event. She said, “In these very difficult times, it is encouraging to see so many positive businesses stepping forward to promote themselves to the region, not only to gain additional business but also to forge new working partnerships with other companies”. In addition to businesses promoting themselves, Jane explained that they have organised a series of free seminars that will take place throughout the day. “This year we have tried to cover seminars that we feel will be of great value to our visitors. The ‘Social Media Accelerator’ (by Darren Wiseman), is proving very popular and booking up fast.

As always we have a range of exhibitors who are industry experts who will be on hand to answer individuals questions on: finance, marketing, legal, accountancy and taxation, grant funding and VAT. We also have a free Speed Networking Session on the day so please remember to bring plenty of business cards with you” The event could not take place without the support of our sponsors, who this year include: HullMag, KCFM, TD Entertainments and Web Orchard”.

Rob will deliver his talk entitled ‘How to Build a High Level Network!’ For further information regarding the event, please call: Dalton Spire Ltd on 01964 552470 or email:

HEAR ROB BROWN AT 2013 EXPO Born in 1965, Rob grew up in Hull. In his early days he travelled extensively around the USA, Australia and Europe. In 1992, he qualified as a joint Mathematics and Phys Ed teacher, showing big kids how to do tough sums, pass exams, play football and throw javelins! In 1999 he began a Masters in Human Resource Development before taking a sales role in the global health care company BUPA. To grow his business, Rob went networking. During a period of two years, he collected 987 business cards, went to 126 events, spent 200 hours shaking hands and £4385 on breakfasts, lunches, dinners and memberships. He won NO business! All he was earning was commission on a few company leads. Rob reached a critical point of ‘financial urgency’ where he knew something had to change. He resolved to become an expert at networking. It prompted him to learn everything he could on marketing and business relationships. What happened next? In just 13 months, he multiplied his income by a factor of 15! People soon began asking Rob how he did it! So in 2004, he founded his own networking company specialising in showing people how to network productively and stand out a crowd. Rob is now one of the UK’s most recommended professionals on Linkedin, and the most recommended networking guru on LinkedIn in the world! To book your seat please email:

The ‘HOOK FACTOR’ & CHARLIE HOOK Charlie Hook was diagnosed with stage four neuroblastoma on his fifth birthday. In simple terms he had a tumour on liver that had spread to his skull. He is now seven years old and in remission but has an eighty percent chance of relapse. If this happens he will need five hundred thousand pounds to take him for treatment to America or Germany as the UK will only offer palliative care. Charlie will not be classed as “cured” until he is eleven. Charlie has to undergo a series of tests every three months to check the disease has not returned. The Charlie Hook Appeal was set up to raise money for Charlie and other children who have the same condition. The Charity has raised money with a wide and varied mix of events since its launch, one of which is the ‘Hook Factor.’

The ‘Hook Factor’ is a talent competition run in Hull for musicians, bands and singer songwriters who want the chance to perform in front of a live audience that will either vote them through to the next round or send them home. The winning act will get a recording deal as part of their prize, so it is well worth winning. At only £5 per ticket it represents great value for money and gives those attending the chance to vote for their favourite contestant on the night as well as contributing to a worthy cause. With three rounds of the competition already decided there are only two more rounds left before the final on Saturday 30th November. Please support this event and see some great bands and have a fantastic night out in the Atrium at The Prospect Centre, you won’t regret it. Toni & Guy are one of the sponsors and are offering a 20% discount for clients who bring their Hook Factor tickets into the Paragon Street store (Mon to Fri Only).

The ‘HOOK FACTOR’ line up so far for 5th October is.... Throwing Words, Plinth95, Chris Jordon, Brighter than Static, Vicky Foster, Adam Davison, Luke Ninties Boy and a very special appearance from Hull’s very own Mr. X-Factor... Ryan Mathie

FIONA’S FOOD FOR THOUGHT By Fiona Dwyer, broadcast journalist, PR & media consultant, slave to 2 children and a husband.

BACK ON CALENDAR I’m delighted to let you know that I’m back on ITV Yorkshire’s Calendar News for two days every week. In fact you may have already spotted me! I’ll be bringing you stories and features right here from the Hull and East Yorkshire region. It’s great to be working again with my fantastic colleagues across Yorkshire and Lincolnshire. So don’t forget to tune into ITV Calendar at 6pm every evening! If you have any stories you’d like to share, please get in touch. Call us on 0113 222 8885, email fiona. or Don’t forget to give us your name and daytime telephone number so we can call you back. It will be great to hear from you. BACK TO AFTER SCHOOL ACTIVITIES Where on earth did the summer holidays go? At the beginning of the 6 week break you think they’re never going to end, then all of a sudden it’s back to school and after-school activities! But it got me thinking. How many nights of the week do your children do activities? I see parents rushing from one place to the next, every night of the week - and Saturday morning, too! It’s as though they feel that they absolutely have to fit everything in because, if they don’t, they’re failing their children in some way. I say “Don’t beat yourself up!” It’s simply impossible to do everything without having a nervous breakdown – and quite frankly, I think we expect too much from our children these days. They must be exhausted. And when do they get chance to do their homework and just have some family time? I always try to keep Monday and Friday evenings free. I must confess I love the nights when we get home from school, have a snack, do school reading and any other homework, have tea and chill out before hot chocolates and bedtime stories. I know my children need a night or two like that. So do I! What are your experiences? I’d love to hear them. ...AND BACK TO THE GYM! Well, it’s that old chestnut that keeps resurfacing! When, oh when, will I ever get there? What about you, have you made it to the gym yet? Let’s make a pact. Let’s not hide under our warm winter jumpers, much as I love them! Let’s get in shape. Let’s exercise and eat nutritious food that gives us lots of energy and keeps us healthy! I know, and so do you, that if we do this, we’ll be so pleased when it’s Christmas party season. How much better will we feel wearing our little black numbers (or whichever slinky party dress we choose)? One thing’s for sure, it’ll make the choosing a whole lot easier and a lot more fun! Come on, let’s get started – only 3 months to go! To Contact

More Music, More East Yorkshire, More YOU!

Another month has come around already – the summer has been so busy here at KCFM. We’ve been out and about at events taking place right across East Yorkshire, and making some of our own fun as well – as you’ll see!

One of the big events of the summer was Tribfest at Sledmere House near Driffield. It’s a music festival with a real family feel, and some world class cover bands too. The sun shone, the music played and the blue wigs swayed in time to the beat. We can’t wait until next year already.

The Daytime presenters here at KCFM managed to take advantage of one of the last hot, sunny days of the year by lugging a heavy sofa around East Yorkshire, and making ourselves at home at some of our favourite landmarks. Sam Heywood was ‘White Van Woman’ for the day, while Matt Hutchinson, Rob Langley and Darren Lethem did the sofa removal work - and we really did have a laugh.

There were many bemused faces when we turned up outside Beverley Minster or on Hornsea seafront and sat down on our own sofa! We made sure we photographed the whole day of course and you can see all the pictures by going to the front page of Here are some of the highlights – for example when Sam asked a passer-by on Hessle Foreshore if we could borrow their dog! She was called Kelsey and was very happy to join our party. There were a few surprised ducks and grumpy geese when we landed with our furniture at Hornsea Mere. There’s always time for fish and chips of course – although none of them realised the guilty moment had been caught on camera! And at the end of a long day, the sofa became very useful for tired feet. I think they’re still there now! Go to to see the rest, and listen out to 99.8 KCFM throughout the weekday to catch up with guys. The KCFM Breakfast Show with Matt Hutchinson 5am - 10am, Sam Heywood 10am - 2pm, Rob Langley 2pm 7pm, Darren Lethem 7pm - 10pm.
