Royal Antediluvian Order of Buffaloes HAVANT PROVINCE

We were first formed in 1822, in the Harp Tavern (opposite the Drury Lane Theatre) by the artist Joseph Lisle and comedian William Sinnett, along with others. The first Lodge was called Phoenix Lodge No 1. The name “The Buffaloes” came from a

popular song at the time, “We’ll chase the buffalo”. From there we grew in to the largest fraternal organisation in Great Britain. In 1866 as more and more lodges were opened, the Grand Lodge of England

was formed to control them. It set the laws, controlled procedures and managed administration. Many Banners were formed over the years following disagreements as to how it should be run. During the First World, the organisation supplied six

ambulances, with volunteer “Buffs” as drivers, to carry wounded soldiers back to the UK, more of them followed through out the war. At the end of the war, these formed the beginning's of the ambulance service as we now know it.

We are the “Buffs” and we’re recruiting in your area This is an open invitation to all the Brothers, who for whatever reason, have lost their way, but who would like to reconnect with this amazing Order again. To find out where your local Lodge is see below. And to all the other Gentleman who have not yet found us. Come and have a chat with us. You’ll find that it’s a very fulfilling oppor-

tunity to join an organisation that is dedicated to helping those in society that need help, through charitable actions. We also have a lot of fun doing it, So if you’re Male and over 18, come along to one of our Lodges and introduce yourself, you never know, you might enjoy it. In 1926 the Order purchased Grove House, to use as an orphanage, each member contributed a ha’penny (half an

old penny) towards its running. When the state took over responsibility of the orphans, the order started a new Charity for them, which still runs today. During the Second World War, Grove House was used as a Military Hospital. The RAOB continues its work in the local community, helping those its members promise to assist in times of difficulty or need. Minor Lodges

throughout the United Kingdom and the rest of the world raise money for charities and charitable causes. The Lodges and the Provincial Grand Lodge each select a Charity for each year. The Provincial Grand Primo for 2018 Bro Allan Harper ROH presented a cheque for £1334 to the Renal unit at QA Hospital, raised during 2018. The Lodges of our Province also raise monies for their respective charities.

Local legal firm Belcher Frost has, for over 40 years, advised clients on a range of legal matters relating to their personal affairs and their businesses.

Selling your Property? Things to Bear in Mind… At Belcher Frost Solicitors Ltd we have a wealth of experience to draw on in terms of residential property transactions. We can guide you in relation to the legal transaction itself as well as providing some tips to consider before the legal work gets under way. 1. Take the advice of a few estate agents regarding the value of the property, and consider a realistic price. Overpricing may put off potential buyers and delay your sale. 2. Choose your solicitor when you put your property on the market and avoid a last minute decision once a buyer has been found. 3. Beware online estate agents and legal firms offering apparently low fees. These may be appealing but often come with hidden costs. Firms offering a fixed fee including all elements of the work may be cheaper than those

offering a low charge with a long list of ‘extras.’ Time your sale to optimise the potential to sell. Spring time is traditionally a good time but bear in mind other factors such as political climate. Emphasise your property’s unique selling points and use good quality photographs for marketing. Declutter your property and increase the chances of your buyer imagining themselves living there. Spruce up the property and show the buyer you have maintained and cared for it. It’s not all about the money. A high offer from a buyer does not always mean they are able to proceed. Check out the background to any offer made – does the buyer have property to sell and are they in a chain, or are they cash ready?

Welcome to the New School Year! September has marked a new start for Warblington School and a smart new uniform, chosen by the students and parents, is being worn impeccably around school and in the local community. Late September saw the school open its doors to local Year 5 and 6 students and parents, which proved very popular with visitors commenting on the ‘excellent behaviour’ and ‘really positive working environments’. All this has come on the back of our successful GCSE results in the summer which we are incredibly proud of, particularly the number of top grades (grades 7 or better) achieved by the year group. We are also delighted to have our first student to achieve grade 9’s in every subject! Our motto of ‘Excellence is our Expectation’ is becoming embedded in our school ethos, giving students a high quality education alongside the skills to develop personally is fundamental to all we do. It really is a great time to be a member of our thriving community.

‘fantastic sports facilities’

‘really welcoming staff and students’

‘good to see such a great learning culture’

Warblington School is Buzzing Thursday lunchtimes at Warblington school is a hive of activity as students meet to try and make the school site more appealing to bees and butterflies. One in three mouthfuls of food wouldn’t exist if it wasn’t for bees and other pollinators. Over recent years there has been a decline in insects and this community project has been set up to try and help. Part of the Buzz Off project is to plant more flowers around the school area to encourage these amazing creatures and the school is looking for donations of seeds to plant in the school gardens. So if you have any seeds that you can donate to the project the school would love to hear from you so give us a buzz!

Better legs

Mr Simon Payne Consultant General & Vascular Surgeon

Mr Payne is focussed on your care. His philosophy is to listen carefully to you and your concerns. He will provide you with a comprehensive and thorough assessment drawing on his wide expertise. Thoughtful and considered advice is then shared, guiding you as he would one of his own relatives. Treatment is carried out meticulously and after-care during your recovery is considerate and caring. Varicose and thread veins develop when the veins, which transport blood from the legs to the heart, become enlarged to such an extent that they become visible, lumpy and painful. The non-return valves no longer function properly and high pressure can develop in the veins. This causes the familiar aching and itching associated with varicose veins, but it

may cause more serious problems such as ulceration, which can be difficult to heal. Mr Payne offers a range of treatments to help you achieve the best results tailored to your individual needs including:

• Ultrasound guided foam sclerotherapy • Laser treatment • Thread vein treatment

e n i g a Im r e t t e B Legs

Walk daily, even if it’s a short distance Keep your weight within normal limits for your height Wear support stockings during pregnancy Keep skin moisturised with a gentle non-perfumed moisturiser If you bruise easily, Arnica cream can somtimes be beneficial Use knee length compression stockings on long journeys or if you have to stand for long periods

Initial consultation

Your initial consultation will involve an examination and a full duplex scan to determine how your individual veins are functioning. Your treatment options will then be fully explained and Mr Payne will advise on the most suitable option for you.

2

Treatment

If treatment is recommended, we will offer a tailored plan and all inclusive fixed price treatment packages. Treatment can be scheduled at a date to suit you.

Tips for healthier legs: • • • • • •

After-Care

Mr Payne will guide you through your recovery, helping you to achieve your desired result.
