Church Road Street Closure Saturday June 11th 2016

On the above date, Church Road Seal will be closed between midday and 6pm to make way for a village street party. This is being held to celebrate the Queen's 90th birthday. All those living in the immediate area will have received letters from the Know Your Neighbours Group. We are requesting that if you normally park on Church Road, or will need to take your out through the road during this time, that you might consider moving to another area. This helps to create a better space for the occasion, and with a large volume of people in a small space on the day, will help to keep your vehicle safe from 'sticky fingerprints'! There will be more details regarding the event closer to the time, but meanwhile, for more details, please email marion. gilchrist@hotmail.co.uk

Congratulations to Barbara Arnold

Thursday 5th May

I was so proud to be asked to go along to the parish council meeting today as they were giving a special award to Barbara Arnold. She is a lovely lady and I am proud to say she’s my friend! She is 95 years young and always happy to talk about all her experiences which include two Royal Garden Party’s and a Horse Guards Parade. She has lived in Seal all her life and has been involved in so much in the village including 65 years in the Women’s British Legion, Seal Church, Book Reading, Knitting , Over 60s and most recently an exercise class !! Not bad for her years, just hope I’m as active if I make it to her age. A great honour to a great lady !! Chris R

BEWARE OF THE HEALTHINESS

A few months ago it was pointed out to me that possibly 12 cups of coffee and 10 cups of tea a day wasn’t terribly good for me. For some reason, I actually listened to this wise advice and have cut down to one of each a day. To fill in the gaps, I now drink herbal tea like nobody’s business. Last week at the supermarket one flavour was on half price, so I bought a box for my office stash. It was lovely, and by lunch time I’d had four mugs of the stuff. Over my fifth mug I thought I’d spend a few minutes finding out if there were any health benefits to this raspberry leaf tea, so I Googled. And it turned out that in the quantity I’d consumed, I had prepared my uterus for imminent labour. Hey ho, at least it tasted good, even if the health benefits weren’t going to be particular useful. A short while later, my tummy started gurgling. Not in a hungry way - it was more of a – and I apologise that we might be moving into the realms of too much information here – more of a need to get to the toilet pretty quickly way. This continued for most of the afternoon. I continued drinking the raspberry leaf tea as it was rather lovely. When I got home I thought to look raspberry leaf in my big herb book. Not only had I prepared my uterus for childbirth and, it turns out a number of other good things – were I about to bring a new life in the world – and drunk about 5 times more than was needed to achieve those results, but I had also drunk a few litres of something that is both a diuretic and laxative. It seems to me that raspberry leaf is pretty determined to get something out of your body one way or another. So be a little bit careful when doing the healthy thing. It definitely has its benefits. But it can also have slightly… um…unintended results too. www.thepogblog.com

Riders can cycle at their own pace and there are opportunities for time trials. Trained cycling coach, Ollie Ireland, from Track ‘n’ Trail Biking, will lead and guide cyclists and the first ride takes place at the end of May. Cllr Michelle Lowe, the Council’s Cabinet Member for health, says: “These rides are a fun way to see the fabulous scenery across the District with friends and family, as well as enjoying some fresh air and improving health! We are thrilled to be able to offer these rides again, as they were extremely popular last summer.” “Cycling with others is not only great for physical health but it is also good for mental health. This is another way we use our open spaces for the general wellbeing of our residents” Rides are taking place as follows: Sun 26 June - Knole Park - 10.30am Sun 24 July - Knole Park - 10.30am Mon1 Aug. - Brand's Hatch - 10.30am & 2pm Wed 31 Aug - Brand's Hatch - 10.30am & 2pm Sun 11 September - Knole Park - 10.30am Sun 25 September - Knole Park - 10.30am All under 18s must be accompanied by an adult and cyclists must wear a helmet, arrive 15 minutes early and bring their own bike.

One of our favourite speakers Dr Ann Kneif returned to talk about the nine hall houses of Southfleet. The vicar had the best one of them all, she told us.

Farmers were said to be very respectable and opulent. There were more hall houses in Southfleet that anywhere in the locality.

As Southfleet was under the jurisdiction of the church of St.Nicholas, six of the nine houses had church connections, now echoed in the names such as Church House, Chapter Farm and Church Cottages. Friary Court, built in 1323 by the rector Thomas Alkham was a double hall house faced with flint and having pointed arch windows, resembling the church. It was once a friary and the story goes that the house is haunted. The tale concerned Andy Forrester Lic Ac MBAcC philandering between a monk and nuns.

JUNE AT SHIPBOURNE FARMERS MARKET

Following a poor April in terms of attendance, May started with the largest number of visitors we have had at the market (except for Christmas) for 3 years !! Why ? The weather was excellent, but so it was in April, yet there were many new faces.!! Our knive sharpening ‘Ninja Warrior’, Paul is working full stretch at every market. Last month he sharpened a scythe, mower blades, sheep shears as well as secatuers and household items. The biggest problem is simply remembering to bring them along to the market. After a slow start from the cool spring, growing and producing are now at full stretch. Remember that because you are buying locally and seasonally, pricing is likely to be competitive with the supermarkets and often cheaper so don’t fall for the idea that markets are an expensive luxury The vagaries of the weather are nowhere more in evidence than with the asparagus crop at this time of year. A cold start meant the season didn’t get going till mid May and picking will be finishing by the end of the month to allow the plants to generate growth for next year. Eat your local asparagus traditionally, steamed and served with melted butter, or brush with olive oil and griddle the spears on the barbecue until tender then scattered with shavings of a sharp hard cheese such as Lord of the Hundreds, or maybe Kentish Bluebell or tart fresh goat’s cheese crumbled over. Try the spears in soups, vegetable gratins or make into a perfect risotto paired with the first tender broad beans (freshly picked little pods can be enjoyed whole) and fresh green peas. I like to stir in a herb butter at the end of cooking once the grains are tender (just whiz butter up in a blender with a handful of mint, parsley, basil and chives). Other veg to look out for are crisp radishes, spring onions, spinach, and of course new potatoes. There are also early cucumbers, runner beans, spinach and courgettes, alongside all kinds of salad leaves now in season. It’s also the ideal time to plant out ‘ready to plant’ herbs and summer bedding plants. The long days and the warmth also herald the start of the great English soft fruit season with strawberries now appearing as the month progresses – one of the great advantages of local markets is the chance to try some of the finer flavoured varieties, rather than the more robust berries grown to withstand the rigours of the supermarket supply chain that may not have the same flavour. A cool start to the year has meant early strawberries might be slower to appear than last year but they will have benefited from a slower growing period for flavour. Ditto the finest local cherries (Kentish cherries are justifiably world famous), gooseberries and early raspberries. A favourite way to serve raspberries, cherries and strawberries is to crush them slightly, sprinkle with a little Kentish cherry brandy or Italian vin santo and sugar then leave to macerate for an hour. Serve spooned over vanilla ice cream. Spring lamb is now at its very finest now and a boned-out shoulder or leg is perfect on the barbecue or simply roasted and served with baby new potatoes and minted broad beans and peas. Look out for salt marsh lamb this month – perfect with buttered samphire. On the fish front it’s really has to be mackerel – bought silvery fresh from the market and cooked the same day to enjoy at its very

10

best. Try it the traditional way for the month – grilled and served with a tart gooseberry sauce. Also good this month are lobster, plaice, sardines and clams. If your visit to the market coincides with a sunny weekend, plan the perfect picnic. Fill your basket with locally made cheeses, pates, maybe a raised pie or Scotch egg. Then just add a loaf of artisan bread baked that day, some chutney or relish, a bag of cherries and maybe a punnet of strawberries and you are all set. A bottle or two of a local beer or chilled white wine and you have the makings of a feast…. Written by Mary Gwynn (Author of the ‘WI 100 years Cook Book’ and ‘The Busy Mums Cook Book’. available at the Farmers Market)

Green summer risotto

Taken from The Busy Mum’s Vegetarian Cookbook by Mary Gwynn Risottos are my idea of the perfect comfort food and so convenient as there is always the makings of one in the cupboard or veg drawer. I make risottos in all the colours of the rainbow, just by following the basic method and adding a vegetable. Pumpkin, aubergine and courgette are all favourites but this one is a particular favourite Prepare: 15 mins/Cook: 25 mins/Serves 4 - 6 • 450g prepared seasonal vegetables (such as small courgettes, podded peas, green beans, broad beans and asparagus tips) • 2 tbsp olive oil • 2 shallots, finely chopped • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped • 350g arborio risotto rice • about 1.5 litres simmering vegetable stock from a cube • 100ml dry white wine • 50g butter • 50g fresh mixed herbs, such as flat-leaf parsley, basil, chives, tarragon, dill or chervil, finely chopped • 50g freshly grated Parmesan • salt and freshly ground black pepper 1. Cook the vegetables in simmering water for 2 – 3 minutes until almost tender then drain and plunge into iced water to cool. Drain thoroughly and set aside. Heat the oil in a heavy-based saucepan. Add the shallot and garlic and cook for about 3 minutes until softened. Add the rice and stir to coat in the oil. 2. Add a ladleful of stock and the white wine and simmer over a medium-low heat until the liquid is absorbed, stirring constantly. Continue adding stock, a few tablespoons at a time, stirring frequently, until all the stock is absorbed and the rice is tender and creamy but still with a slight bite. This should take about 20 minutes 3. While the rice is cooking, place the butter in a blender or food processor with the herbs and seasoning and process until well blended together. When the rice is tender, add the reserved vegetables and cook for another minute or two to heat through. Stir in the herb butter and Parmesan cheese and adjust the seasoning. Serve immediately.
