Welcome to the village directory Hi everyone, Welcome to the October Issue and to all our new readers in Park Farm and Kingsnorth. This month the coverage of the magazine has been extended to add another 5,000 readers, all receiving the magazine via Royal Mail as per usual with The Village Directory. For now this extended coverage is a trial but if the response is positive I hope to extend the coverage regularly in the new year. For the benefit of our new readers The Village Directory began eight years ago in the surrounding villages as a local community handbook. With local events and editorial content it has become a valued part of the rural community, especially as it reaches every home due to it’s guaranteed Royal Mail deliveries. Last November I began the Ashford edition covering Kennington and Willesborough and I’m relieved to say that it has also been very well recieved, I sincerely hope you like it too. The nights will start drawing in this month, especially once the clocks go BACK on Sunday

27th October, bringing British Summer Time to a close, at least it was a good one this year! As you’ll see from the front cover, Christmas is now on the menu, and will be more so in the coming months. I can’t believe it’s time to start planning the office party, where did the year go! October, of course, is the month for Halloween when freaky looking pumpkins aim to keep ghosts and ghouls away from our doors. This will be closely followed by Bonfire Night, and there are a couple of organised displays advertised in this issue along with other events for November. If you want to source your own fireworks HomePlus are offering big discounts and they’re giving away free sparklers to all customers, no purchase necessary, see page 21. Until next time have fun and stay safe. Have a great month ~ Debbie T: 01233 720488 e: info@thevillagedirectory.co.uk w: www.thevillagedirectory.co.uk

the garden

on your

PLOT

Benefits of Garlic

As the days get shorter and the weather gets cooler the focus on your vegetable plot starts to turn from growing and harvesƟng, into clearing and Ɵdying. Time spent on clearing and preparing your beds now will pay dividends next year. Make the most of the autumn sunshine to get compost dug into bare beds and you’ll have saved yourself hours of work on those chilly Spring days. Jobs for October:-

4

Make sure that plenty of sun can get to your pumpkins in order to get them ripe in Ɵme for Halloween. Plant garlic, shallots and Japanese onions. Leaving dead seed heads etc. on your flower borders will provide valuable food and shelter for garden wildlife over winter, as will leaving an undisturbed log or two. Build a rough shelter in a quiet corner and you might get a hedgehog move in! If you get lots of fallen leaves on your plot don’t waste them. Make a bin from chicken wire aƩached to 4 posts. Fill this with the leaves and they will rot down to give you sweetsmelling black leaf mould in one to two years Ɵme.

October is a good month for taking stock of how things have gone this year and starƟng to make plans for what you will grow in the future. Removing spent crops exposes slugs and other such pests to birds and other garden friendly wildlife. It also gives you the chance to look aŌer your soil and assess how the space will be used next. Crop rotaƟon is important so if the space is to remain bare over winter it may be wise to make notes about what grew where this season. Add maƩer from your compost heap to newly cleared areas, either digging it in, or leaving a layer on the top where the worms will gradually incorporate it into the deeper soil over winter. If the soil is heavy leaving it bare will enable frosts to help break it up. Our soil is lighter and benefits from being covered over - we use flaƩened cardboard boxes which protect from the rain and also help keep the weeds at bay. You may think that it’s all too late in the year to be planƟng, but there are some crops that definitely need to be thought of now, and others that, given an early start now, will benefit next Spring.

If you’ve not grown garlic before, then do try it - it’s easy to grow, can help protect other crops from pests, and with just a small amount of space you can grow enough to see you through the whole year! Now is definitely the Ɵme to order your garlic bulbs and they can be planted anyƟme between now and Christmas, but preferably not when the soil is too wet. Rather than planƟng all the garlic together it may pay to spread it around the plot as the strong smell can be an aid in keeping pests such as the carrot root fly away from other crops. Each garlic bulb should be separated into individual cloves and the cloves are planted with the pointed end uppermost, just below the surface, leaving about 4 inches between each one. They like well drained soil and you’ll be pleasantly surprised in the long winter days to see their green Ɵps creeping upwards. Each clove matures into a whole new bulb. The tradiƟonal Ɵme for harvesƟng garlic is in June, on the longest day of the year and if properly dried and stored it will keep right through the winter. Would you like some fresh, tender, young, peas early in the Spring next year? Look out for hardy varieƟes that can be planted now. They can be overwintered and are able to withstand the frosts, though protecƟon with a cloche will be appreciated. We will be starƟng ours in pots to keep in the polytunnel over winter ready for early planƟng next season.

what’s on

For thousands of years, ancient civilizations have used celestial bodies to measure the passage of time. The Sumerians tracked the movements of planets and stars to record the seasons, and even created ancient calendars to record lunar cycles. It is believed that around 4236 BC, the Egyptians discovered the `Dog Star` rising alongside the sun every 365 days, it is believed to be “one of the earliest years recorded in history” and would later evolve into the current 365day calendar. 3500 BC Egyptians used giant obelisk shaped objects which projected shadows on the ground to track the 12 parts of the day we know them as sundials. The Greeks then invented water clocks but they had problems with erosion so they became unreliable. There was also a problem that during the winter as they would freeze up. So then along came sand clocks, we know them as an hour glass.

The first modern mechanical clock was created some time between 500-1000 AD in Europe the exact date is unknown. It used weights that moved gears which in turn moved a single hour hand. These clocks were very large and require the weights to be reset 5 times a day. It wasn’t until centuries later that the next major hurdle in clock making was reached when the clocks driving weights were replaced with the invention of the coiled spring by Peter Henlein this was around 1500. Then in 1504 he invented the first portable clock this odd looking egg shaped thing was made from iron and it only had an hour hand and no protective covering over the dial. The telling of time rapidly started to move on when in 1577 the invention of the minute hand was designed by a Danish astronomer. Then in 1600, Burgi was also responsible for the first clock featuring minutes and seconds as well. The next few centuries saw the evolution of pocket watches they became smaller, and more accurate and very ornately designed. In 1704 Facio came to London with an idea to use jewelled pivot bearings. His idea was that precious stones would not wear or erode like metal pivots would this is when the jewelled movement was invented and is still used today. Over the years watches got more and more accurate.

Always here to help In the latest in our regular series of articles regarding legal matters, Katrina Kemp, Solicitor at Pengelly & Rylands, gives some advice on Wills, Powers of Attorney and selling your home. As we get older we tend to use solicitors more – perhaps to make a Will, to make plans for our future needs, in case we should become unable to deal with our affairs ourselves, or maybe to buy a property. At Pengelly & Rylands we can help with all of these issues. We understand that it is important that you feel confident with your solicitor. That you feel able to ask questions and speak to your solicitor on a one-to-one basis. We value good service and will deal with your matter professionally and with integrity, from your very first enquiry, and we will act, at all times, in your best interests.

8

We are always here to help you achieve the result you want. In order for us to do this we need to know what you are planning to do. Here are some examples of what you should consider before making your appointment with us: If you are thinking of writing a Will, you will need to consider who you want to act as your Executors, who you want to benefit from your Will and most importantly what you want your Will to achieve. You should consider, before you come to see us, what you want to happen with your house, possessions and finances. If you are not sure, we can always offer advice. If you are considering making a Lasting Power of Attorney, you should think very carefully about who will be your Attorney(s). You should consider if you want a replacement Attorney, to act if your Attorney(s) cannot act for you if the time comes. You will also need to choose someone “to be told” who is given the opportunity to raise any concerns or objections, if and when the Lasting Power of Attorney comes to be registered. A Certificate Provider will also need to be appointed, to confirm that you understand the significance of the Lasting Power of Attorney - perhaps your GP or a longstanding friend.

Katrina Kemp Solicitor

If you are considering selling your property, you should contact your solicitor early on. This will give you and your solicitor time to get the legal paperwork in order. You will need to find your title deeds, planning and/or building regulations approval documents, guarantees and surveys. You will need to arrange for an Energy Performance Certificate to be completed and you will need to complete the Property Information and Fittings and Contents forms. Again, we can help you with all of these things. Being prepared and organised can help us deal with your matter more efficiently. If you would like to discuss with us how we can help in preparing your Will, a Lasting Power of Attorney or your house sale or purchase, please call us on 01580 762248.

Maximising Income Opportunities From Investments Income is important. It’s an obvious statement. The difficulty is that, in an uncertain world, investment income is hard to find right now. Investors looking for income have faced an increasing challenge ever since the financial crisis broke in 2008. Five years on and interest rates in the UK remain almost non-existent. Consequently, investors wanting to secure an income stream have realised that they must accept some risk by looking beyond traditional cash deposits. History shows that investing in equities, or shares, has provided investors with a better chance of outpacing inflation over the long term versus other asset classes, particularly if the companies are able to increase the dividend payments year after year. After difficult conditions in 2008 and 2009, it

appears that this seems to be happening. With dividend payouts on the turn, the outlook for equity income funds could also be on the up. Equity income funds have a strong track record for delivering attractive, sustainable income and steady returns over the long term, but they were inevitably impacted by the global banking crisis of recent times. These funds have had time to adjust to the post-financial crisis world but it is worth remembering that not all equity income funds are the same. Some are better for income, while others provide better prospects for total return investors through the reinvestment of dividends. So if it’s income you are after make sure you research and understand the individual fund fully. It is not just UK equity funds that might tempt income seekers. Corporate bond funds, income producers by nature, remain popular, particularly with cautious investors. But the decision on which bond fund to choose is less than clear-cut and those considering the asset class should consider the contrast between the different types. As applies with all asset types, a diversified fixed interest strategy will ensure

that investors capture the potential of the wider corporate bond market. Commercial property, another income producing asset, is also beginning to attract attention again. The real estate sector felt the full effects of the credit crunch and the fall in property values left many investors nursing significant losses. Never had the sector suffered such a sharp decline but history suggests that commercial property has a place in a portfolio for income investors. Those investing for income need to remember that no one asset class is the panacea. With interest rates likely to remain low for some time to come, a well diversified, well-managed portfolio which blends different forms of investment remains the most suitable strategy for investors taking a longer-term view of their income needs.

Chilli Chicken Stew Serves 6 - 8

Ready in 1 hour 45 minutes

With Halloween at the end of the month, why not plan a ghostly gathering and serve up this hot and spicy chicken stew? Perfect for filling up hungry trick or treaters.

Ingredients: 12

• 1-2 tbsp sunflower oil • 1 large onion, peeled and cut into chunks • 2 garlic cloves, peeled and crushed • 1 small red chilli pepper, deseeded and finely chopped (optional) • 6 large skinless chicken fillets, cut into pieces • 2 x 400g can chopped tomatoes • 2 tbsp sun-dried tomato puree • 2 tsp dried oregano • 1 x 400g can kidney beans in chilli sauce • 1 red, 1 green and 1 yellow pepper, deseeded and diced • Salt and freshly ground black pepper • Warm crusty bread, to serve

Heat 1 tbsp of the oil in a large, deep flameproof casserole and fry the onion and garlic for 5 minutes until softened and golden. Add the chilli pepper (if using) and chicken pieces and cook over a medium heat, stirring all the time, until the chicken pieces are lightly browned all over, adding a little extra oil if needed. Stir in the tomatoes, tomato puree, oregano and 200ml water and bring to the boil. Season well with salt and freshly ground black pepper then reduce the heat, partially cover and simmer for 40 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the kidney beans and diced peppers to the casserole and simmer, uncovered, for a further 20-25 mins until the peppers are tender and some of the liquid has reduced. Serve in mugs or bowls with chunks of warm crusty bread.

Tip For a hot non-alcoholic punch to serve with the stew, pour a large carton of apple juice into a saucepan. Core and slice 2 small apples and add to the pan with one thinly sliced lemon and a couple of cinnamon sticks. Heat gently for about 10 minutes, then pour in 1 litre of ginger ale. Heat through for a further minute then serve in heatproof glasses or tumblers.

If you want to live longer, eat salt! An old Latin proverb states “There is nothing more useful than the sun and salt” (Nil sole et sale utilius).

22

I wonder how many of you have been told to reduce your salt intake because of the detrimental effects it has on your health. This denunciation of salt seems strange since salt has always been viewed as being very valuable historically. In ancient Greece, slaves were traded for salt - hence the expression “not worth his salt.” Roman soldiers were sometimes paid in salt (salis) and their salarium is the origin of our word “salary”. “Soldier” actually comes from the Latin (sal dare), which means, “to give salt”. In Biblical times, salt was also used to seal an agreement or contract and was called “the covenant of salt”. Salt was valuable since it preserved foods and being called the “salt of the earth” meant that you were a valuable person. Though no longer common, for hundreds of years Roman Catholic priests would place a pinch of salt on a baby’s tongue during baptism and say, “Receive the salt of wisdom.” Participants at medieval feasts were seated in order of importance based on the location of the salt dishes. Distinguished guests dined at an elegant elevated banquet table “above the salt.” If salt was believed to be so valuable and useful in so many ways for so many thousands of years by so many million people from so many different cultures, why has it become so reviled. Did you know that we actually need salt in our diets to stay healthy? In fact a study reported in the ‘The Lancet’ March 14, 1998 suggests that those who eat salt live longer than those who avoid it. However, it is important to stress here that we are not talking about your bulk

standard refined table salt (sodium chloride), this stuff will destroy your kidneys and fast track you towards hypertension hell. High intakes of sodium chloride will also contribute to weight gain, unsightly ‘cellulite’, fluid retention, liver congestion, gallstones, rheumatism, arthritis, gout, muscle weakness and calcium store depletion (think osteoporosis here). Much of the table salt consumed today is either artificially manufactured or it started out as a whole food before being stripped of all its goodness during the refining process. Salt in its raw state contains up to 82 trace minerals and essential nutrients that counteract the effects of sodium chloride, but these are destroyed or removed during processing to leave just sodium chloride. Furthermore, additives such as bleach and anti-caking agents are included to give salt its whiter than white complexion and to prevent it from clumping. Natural whole unrefined sea salt or Himalayan rock salt ingested in moderation is on the other hand, a health enhancing food. These salts contain so many minerals and nutrients (that are becoming deficient in our soils), needed by our bodies to perform many biological and physiological functions. Deficiency in these important nutrients cause these functions to become compromised and consequently your health will suffer. An experiment was conducted where scientists tried to copy the chemical composition of sea water (chemically it was identical) and added fish, first to the real sea water and then into the man made ‘sea water’. The fish thrived in the real sea water and died in the manmade alternative. Nature is always better. Natural raw sea salt looks wet, clumpy and grey. If it looks any differently to that, then it is a man made copy or it has been refined in some way. The best salt is Celtic sea salt which you can buy from a good health food store or an alternative is Himalayan rock salt which is free of any toxins or impurities, but much harder to get hold of. Please pass the salt! David Wilkes (Doctor of Chiropractic) Family Chiropractic Businessman, Natural Health & Wellness Advisor & Father-to-be!

Chain Reaction DNA CHAIN OF EVIDENCE - A new deterrent to combat burglary and doorstep crime.

26

StranDNA (UK) Limited assists in the chain of evidence required to secure convictions… Cutting edge forensic technology sprays a liquid that has its own unique code (DNA), if an intruder forcefully enters your property the canister sprays the intruder. Once sprayed the liquid will stain his or her clothes/skin/ footwear for a period of time, aiding the police to get an evidence based conviction. Each property’s canister is unique thus linking the intruder to the premises, which makes the safe conviction a reality. (It’s amazing science, check out our website www.southeastlocks.biz for more information) Definitive illegal action is required for the security device to activate and will respond by emitting a high decibel screech alarm simultaneously spraying the perpetrator. The alarm when started will sound and evacuate for approximately 3 minutes, any persons or

property that come into direct contact with this security device will be marked. The DNA liquid is a clear non-toxic, UV based substance only visible under ultra-violet light. UK Police forces have tools in place to identify this type of UV technology using UV lighting situated in numerous Police station custody suites, or by using hand held UV Black Lights. DNA-Trace. After a suspect is found to be stained with the chemical agent, a Forensic Science Service is able to examine and establish its unique DNA code. Each code is held in a secure installations database which records where the device was professionally installed and registered, by a StranDNA approved installer. Clearly, placing any stained individuals at the scene of a specific crime will inevitably add to the chain of evidence required to pursue a conviction in criminal courts and at the same time increase detection rates. We believe once this security device has become synonymous with a specific application, the installation of a sticker situated around the entrance, warning the premises are protected by StranDNA will be a strong deterrent to crimes taking place. There are more than 1 billion codes and NO two canisters are ever the same. Chain Reaction can only be purchased and installed through authorised agents.

Please contact us for more information and a free no obligation demonstration on 01233 463420 or 07766 867931 www.southeastlocks.biz.
