Hello and welcome to the latest edition of the original trimonthly magazine, your local BL5 directory delivered to your door free of charge since 2005. Every month we try to bring you, the local resident, a comprehensive list of local business people who offer professional services within the area where they live. We feel proud to work with small businesses to provide them with a shop window. And we are grateful to the businesses who place their trust in us to deliver their message to you. All we ask of you, the local resident is that you keep the BL5 The Legal bit …... close by the phone and when you’re looking for a job to be done is The BL5 & BL6 have been compiled and published by The Littlemoor that you…. Information Group who are the …..SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL BUSINESSES! owners of the copyri ght. Gill and I have been producing the BL5 & BL6 from our home since 2005, in fact last September saw our sixth anniversary copy produced. We are careful to ensure that our business does not impact upon similar businesses in the area by being different in the way we present our publications, our contributing businesses have, in the main, approached us to feature their business and we never use other publications as a source of increasing content. And we always explain to people who we are! Our prices have remained constant since January 2006, even though our overheads continue to rise in line with inflation, the cost of living etc. We are grateful to the businesses who choose to advertise with us, and to the local people who make use of their services, without whom the BL5 & BL6 would not exist. By the time we have finished delivering our August edition the Olympic games will be well underway, we are really excited about watching the television coverage especially track and field events. My fondest Olympic memories are of the 1980 & 1984 rivalries between Sebastian Coe and Steve Ovett. At the 1980 games Ovett struck first, winning the 800m final ahead of Coe however Coe triumphed in the 1500m with Ovett coming in third for the bronze medal. In 1984 Coe was beaten into second place in the 800m by the Brazilian Joaquim Cruz, a big, striding fellow. Ovett collapsed in the 800m with bronchitis - he probably shouldn't have run at all but he went to hospital and then came back to compete in the 1500m, which shows he was a very determined character. The moment I best remember is the end of that race, as he wins the gold, you can see Coe making his view quite clear that not only had he come back but he had proved his doubters wrong.

Add Some Zest to your BBQ! Fed up with the usual suspects - sausages & Burgers ? Here are some great ideas to live up your summer BBQ’s this year. First, consider using a marinade, which helps to keep the meat moist as it cooks on the barbeque, and will add flavour to normally bland meat such as chicken. The longer you can leave meat to absorb the flavours the better, (even overnight), but if you only have 30 minutes, you will still notice an Peanut Butter Marinade & Chicken Kebabs If you like Chicken Satay from your local Chinese takeaway, you’ll love this. Ingredients for the Marinade 4 fl oz hot water 5 oz smooth peanut butter 1 oz chili paste 2 fl oz soy sauce 1 tbsp olive oil 1 fl oz white vinegar 4 cloves garlic, crushed 4 g grated fresh ginger root pinch ground pepper In a large bowl, gradually stir hot water into peanut butter. Stir in chili paste, soy sauce, oil, vinegar, garlic, ginger & pepper. For the Kebabs Bite-sized Chicken pieces Bamboo skewers, soaked for 30 minutes in water (to prevent them burning). Place chicken in marinade, and turn to coat evenly. Cover, and refrigerate overnight, turning occasionally. Thread chicken pieces onto skewers. Discard marinade. Barbeque the kebabs for 8 to 10 minutes per side, or until no longer pink, and juices run clear. Steak or Chicken Marinade Use this to marinate steak or chicken and discard the remaining marinade when the meat is cooking on the BBQ. Ingredients: 6 fl oz vegetable oil 3 fl oz soy sauce 2 fl oz Worcestershire sauce 2 fl oz red wine vinegar 1 fl. oz lemon juice 1 tsp dry mustard 1 tsp finely chopped parsley good pinch salt and pepper In a medium bowl, mix together oil, soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, wine vinegar, and lemon juice. Stir in mustard powder and parsley and season with the salt and pepper.

Now for desserts! As a change from the usual meat recipes for barbeques, why not try one of our tempting desserts?

♦ REGULAR GARDEN MAINTENANCE ♦ WEEKLY OR FORTNIGHTLY ♦ HEDGES & TREES TRIMMED & PRUNED ♦ GRASS CUTTING & STRIMMING

BBQ Banana Splits (serves 6) 6 large bananas, unpeeled 12 oz chocolate chips 1 (10oz) packet mini marshmallows Brush 6 sheets of aluminum foil with a little cooking oil. Remove the stems from the bananas and slice the peel from stem to base, while slicing the banana inside lengthwise. Prize open the banana just wide enough to place chocolate chips and marshmallows inside the peel with the banana. Wrap in the aluminum foil and place on the BBQ, leaving long enough to melt the chips and the marshmallows, about 5 minutes. Unwrap bananas, open the peels wide, and eat with a spoon. BBQ Peaches (serves 4) 2 fresh peaches, peeled and halved 1 oz brown sugar ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon vanilla essence knob butter Place the peaches, cut side up, on a piece of aluminum foil (about 18 in. x 12 in). Mix sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle into peach centers. Sprinkle with a few drops of vanilla essence and dot with butter. Fold foil over peaches and seal. Barbeque over medium-hot coals for 15 minutes or until heated through. Serve with raspberry sauce (4oz raspberries, 1 tbsp icing sugar, blend in a food processor and sieve to remove seeds).

Creative ways to entertain kids outdoors Two-thirds of us find it hard to keep the kids happy during the long summer break – and most of us think what’s out there is far too expensive. But there’s plenty of low-cost outdoor fun to be had… Have a camp-out in the garden. Spend the day pitching your tent and setting up “house”. Invite a few of their friends, light up the BBQ and cook up an outdoor feast. Add paddling pools, croquet sets, badminton nets, and facepaints as required. Do a kid-swap with friends. Have their children for the day (or weekend if you’re brave), and let them return the favour. You get some well-earned adult time, and the kids can create their own fun. Get active… go cycling, play pitch and putt, go swimming, take a walk. If it’s hard to prise your offspring from their screen of choice, make it fun with scavenger hunts and silly rewards (craziest putt, biggest splash, first to make it up the long hill etc.). Be photographers for the day. Pick a theme… “A day in the life of” or “Weird things I saw today”. Set up a photo scavenger hunt (take a picture of a squirrel, a swing, a yellow car, three sweet wrappers etc). Compare notes at the end of the day and award prizes.

Take the kids geo-caching anywhere in Britain. You’ll need a GPS unit and access to the internet. Caches (a box containing a logbook at its most basic, or a “treasure” box at its best) are hidden all over the country. Your job is to find them. Go to www.geocaching.com for details. Create a garden (or beach, or park) obstacle course. Be creative. Fill the paddling pool with balloons – children have to “swim” through them. Cut out cardboard shapes as stepping stones. Have them balance on a rope path, throw balls into the laundry basket and drape sheets over garden furniture to create tunnels to crawl through. Organise mass picnics with a text-a-friend system. If the weather’s nice, text where you’re going and what time you’ll be there, and have an impromptu gettogether. Kids have a great time in a crowd, and you can chill out in the sun. Become a National Trust member. Annual family membership is £61.50, but that gives you unlimited access to properties, gardens and beaches all over the country. NT properties offer countless children’s activities ranging from treasure hunts and quizzes to dressing up and nature walks. Visit www.nationaltrust.org.uk for more information.
