Form into walnut sized meatballs. Heat a dash of oil in a frying pan, add the meatballs and cook until brown all over. Place in ovenproof dish, large enough for meatballs to form one layer and set to one side. Cheese Sauce Melt the butter in a saucepan and mix in flour to make paste. Gradually add the milk then the cheese and stir until melted. Add sour cream and seasoning. Pour over the meatballs, sprinkling with extra cheese if you wish. Cook in oven at 180C/gas mark 4/350F for 45 mins.

Lemon Syllabub This is so easy to make and is just delicious INGREDIENTS 1/4 pint dry white wine 2 tblsp lemon juice 2 tsp grated lemon rind 3oz caster sugar 10floz double cream 10

We have some favourite recipes to share with you this month - all tried and tested and firm family favourites.

Spicy Pepperoni Pasta INGREDIENTS 500g dried pasta shapes Dash olive oil 2 x cloves garlic, crushed 1 onion, finely chopped 100g pepperoni, chopped 100g peppered salami, chopped 100g pitted black olives, chopped

2x 400g tins chopped tomatoes Tomato puree to thicken Dash tobasco sauce 250g white cheese grated (mild/medium cheddar, mozzerella, jarlesberg etc) 1 tblsp dried oregano Salt & pepper to taste

METHOD In a saucepan, heat the olive oil and fry the onions and garlic until soft. Add the chopped peperoni, salami and olives and fry for a couple of minutes. (At this stage if you have any left over red wine, pour a glassful in and boil to reduce down). Add the tins of tomatoes and stir. Add tabasco sauceto taste,depending how spicy you want it, oregano and salt & pepper. Stir well and leave to simmer for 10-15 mins. If the sauce is still quite runny and watery, add some tomato puree to thicken. It needs to be thick enough to stick to the pasta shapes. Bring a large pan of salted water to the boil and tip in the pasta shapes. Bring back to boil and cook according to packet instructions. When cooked, drain & return to the pan with a little butter or olive oil to prevent it sticking toegther. In an oven proof dish, mix the sauce with enough of the pasta to give a good covering., sprinkle with grated cheese and bake in a medium oven for about 15-20mins or until the cheese is brown and bubbling. Or you can put under a hot grill for 5-10mins. Serve with crusty bread and salad. Serves 4-6

METHOD Put lemon rind, sugar and wine into a bowl, cover and leave for 5-6 hours or overnight. Beat cream into lemon mixture approximately 1 hour before serving. It’s very important not to overbeat the cream. Delicious served with shortbread bisuits, and dessert biscuits and with fruit. Also delicious layered in a glass tumber or wine glass with a granola or crunchy oat mix and fruit. Serves 6

health&wellbeing Old Wives Tales - Myth or Fact? We’ve all been subjected to old wives tales, especially as children when we would be encouraged that eating carrots would help us see in the dark and eating fish would make us brainy! These tales have been passed down from generation to generation, so just how much truth do they hold?

Carrots help you see in the dark Most children must surely have been told this to get them to eat up their veg, and there is actually some scientific basis to it. Carrots are packed with vitamin A which is good for retinas and deficiency of vitamin A in developing countries is considered to be a common cause of blindness. Researchers at the Erasmus Medical Centre in Rotterdam have found that ingesting high levels of beta carotene - the compound that gives carrots their colouring - as well as vitamins C, E and zinc lowers the chance of age-related macular degeneration by up to 35 per cent. Other sources of beta carotene include pumpkins, sweet potatoes, pink grapefruit and spinach. So keep munching on the carrots!

Feed a cold, starve a fever The jury is out on this one - a lot of research says this is simply not true but a small Dutch study at the Academic Medical Centre, Amsterdam, suggests there may be something in it. Volunteers fasted overnight and then were given either water or a meal the next day. Those that drank the water showed raised levels of a compound that fights infections linked to fevers, while those who had the meal experienced higher amounts of a compound that tackles viral infections like colds.

I can feel it in my bones Many people with arthritis claim that their joint pain varies with weather conditions and some claim to be able to predict the weather based on how much pain they are experiencing. A study based on 130 patients with osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis at the Instituto Poal de Reumatologia in Barcelona found that arthritic patients had increased joint pain when there was a drop in atmospheric pressure. They also found that 12

low temperatures increased joint pain in patients with rheumatoid arthritis. "Our data demonstrate that osteoarthritic patients experience increased joint pain in response to a decrease in pressure,"say the researchers.

Long labour - it must be a boy Research at Dublin's National Maternity Hospital, based on 8,000 births and reported in the British Medical Journal, showed that male births were significantly more likely to result in longer labour. "When we say 'it must be a boy', as a humorous explanation of complications of labour and delivery, we are scientifically more correct than previously supposed," say the researchers. Ladies out there have always known that of course, along with man flu’!

An apple a day keeps the doctor away An apple or three a day may not only keep the doctor away, but it might lower the risk of breast and colon cancer. Research at the University of Ulster suggests that high levels of apple phenols, which work as potent antioxidants, may have a beneficial effect on colon cancer cells. "Our results indicate that a crude extract of apple phenolics can protect against DNA damage," they say. Researchers at Cornell University, in the US, found that, in animals, apples prevented mammary cancers. The doses given, were, they say, comparable to human consumption of one, three, and six apples a day. "Consumption of apples may be an effective strategy for cancer protection," they add.

BUT... not all Old Wives tales have been shown to have some truth in them...

Early to bed and early to rise makes a man (or woman) healthy, wealthy and wise A study at Southampton University based on 1,200 men and women over 23 years showed that there was no evidence that early risers were richer, or healthier, or wiser than later risers. In fact, night birds had larger incomes.

55 High Street, Normanton WF6 2AF



Dominated by the cliff-top ruins of a beautiful 13th century Abbey, Whitby has long time been a firm favourite with Wakefield Folk. About 80 miles from Wakefield and just under a two hour drive, this quaint maritime town, with its old cobbled streets, picturesque houses and sandy blue flag beach, is set among glorious stretches of coast with spectacular cliffs and bays. 199 steps lead down from the Abbey to the old town where you find yourself in a shoppers’ paradise. With an array of unique shops offering local crafts, famous Whitby Jet jewellery, maritime memorabilia and antiques, you’re sure to find something that appeals. As a holiday or short break destination, a selection of quite diverse attractions including the Captain Cook Memorial Museum, Victorian Jet Works, the Dracula Experience, Whitby Museum, crazy golf and harbour tours provides entertainment for the family and 16

something to do on the ‘not very sunny’ days. But to be honest, the attraction for me with Whitby is that it isn’t overly commercialised or overtly tourist driven. Inspite of a lovely beach, it still retains a feeling of being a harbour town rather than a seaside resort. There are a few arcades and resort shops selling cheap holiday tat and Kiss-Me-Quick hats (can you still buy these hats, or am I just showing my age?) One of my favourite things to do in Whitby is just to stroll along the beach, always a pleasure regardless of the weather. At low tide you can walk to the lovely Sandsend in about and hour. If you’re there on a longer stay, it’s also nice to go out of the town and see more of the famous ‘Heartbeat’country. The scenery around Goathland and Grosmont is stunning and for the steam train enthusiasts, the North York Moors Steam Railway runs between Whitby and Pickering. There’s a lot to see and do, but it’s also a great place to just kick back and relax! 37

Historically, up to the reign of Elizabeth I, Whitby was little more than a small fishing port which in 1540, had consisted of only around twenty to thirty houses and had a population of about two hundred inhabitants. In that year Henry VIII dissolved the monasteries, including Whitby Abbey. Over the centuries, the town spread both inland and onto the West Cliff, whilst the East Cliff (sometimes called the Haggerlythe) remains dominated by the ruins of Whitby Abbey and St Mary's Church, which can be reached by a climb up the famed 199 steps. 2005 saw the completion of the first major restoration of the 199 steps since the 19th century, when they were changed from wooden "stairs" to stone steps. In an attempt to raise funds, each step was sponsored for £1,000 by locals and visitors and the culmination of the project was a service at St Mary's Church. To commemorate the occasion, each step features a page dedicated to its sponsor in a book that is available, on request, at the church. As the town's wealth increased and Whitby began to grow, its activities extended to include shipbuilding, using the local oak as raw material. Taxes on imports entering via the port raised the necessary finance to improve and extend the town's twin piers, thereby improving the harbour and permitting further increases in trade. In 1753 the first whaling ship set sail from Whitby to Greenland. This initiated a new phase in the town's development, and by 1795 Whitby had become a major centre for the whaling industry. The modern Port of Whitby, well placed for shipping to Europe, is capable of handling a wide range of cargoes, such as grain, steel products, timber and potash.

Personally Recommended The following places are worth a visit when you’re next in Whitby and come with high personal recommendations. White Horse & Griffin Hotel & Restaurant Church Street, Whitby, YO22 4BH Tel:01947 604857 E-Mail: www.whitehorseand A luxury hotel and restaurant housed in a 320 year old building, the White Horse & Griffin offers exceptional cuisine. Famed for using only the freshest and finest local ingredients, the specialities at this restaurant and bistro are, unsurprisingly, the fresh seafood caught locally. The menu also caters well for vegetarians and has a good range of meat dishes for the non-fish eaters. The restaurant is quite expensive but it’s lovely for special occasions and offers a less costly but equally delicious fast track menu at lunchtime. A sample menu can be viewed on the website 38

Mister Chips Church Street, Whitby YO22 4AS Tel: 01947 604683 You can’t really go wrong for fish & chips in Whitby. The famous Magpie cafe on Pier Road is always bustling but Mister Chips on Church Street really does come recommended, and you usually don’t have as long a wait. Botham’s of Whitby Skinner Street, Whitby YO21 3AH Tel: 01947 602823 Founded in 1865 by Elizabeth Botham, the elegant tea rooms of Botham’s of Whitby have been offering teas, coffees and delicious cakes and biscuits for generations. A very traditional cafe, where the waitresses wear black uniforms with white lace pinnies.

What’s happening to the bees? Bees are dying in their billions and environment experts are warning the UK could face dire financial repercussions unless more is done to remedy the ailing bee population. New research has recently been presented on the crisis and highlighted the far-reaching impact bees have on the eco-system. Findings showed England suffered the biggest decline out of the whole of Europe, with bee numbers down 54% (in the UK, around one fifth of honeybee hives were lost in the winter of 2008/09). Bees pollinate a third of the food we eat, and this contributes £200million a year to the UK economy. Disease, habitat destruction, climate change and insecticides have all been blamed for the depleting numbers of bees, which was first noted in the USA five years ago. Flowering plants require insects for pollination. The most effective is the honeybee, which pollinates 90 commercial crops worldwide. As well as most fruits and vegetables – including apples, oranges, strawberries, onions and carrots – they pollinate nuts, sunflowers and oil-seed rape. Coffee, soya beans, clovers – like alfafa, which is used for cattle


feed – and even cotton are all dependent on honeybee pollination to increase yields. The alternative of having humans scatter the pollen manually would cost an estimated £1.5 billion a year What Can We Do? Bees look for two things when they forage on flowers. The first is nectar which is loaded with sugar and the bee's main source of energy. The second is pollen which provides proteins and fat for a balanced diet. Shrubs that are ideal for this include: • Ceanothus • Heathers - Erica and Calluna • Thyme - Thyme Vulgaris • Lavender - Lavandula • Hebe • Candytuft - Iberis Umbellata • Escallonia • Sage - Salvia Officinalis • Pyracantha • Broom - Genista Everyone can do their bit whether you have a garden, allotment or window box. Be Bee friendly and help to stop them from disappearing.

parenting... Sun Safety Summer school holidays provide endless opportunities for hours of outdoor fun. But children require special care to reduce the damage from UV radiation exposure, which causes sunburn and can lead to skin cancer. Unprotected sun and UV radiation exposure in the first fifteen years of life increases the chances of getting skin cancer later in life significantly.

Planning the Day It can take as little as 15 minutes for sunburn and skin damage to occur. UV radiation levels are strongest in the middle of the day so plan to be outdoors before 11am or after 3pm. SEEK OUT SHADE OR BRING YOUR OWN • When you’re outdoors, stay in the shade. If you’re going somewhere where there are no trees or you are unsure what shade protection is available, bring your own shade, such as a large umbrella.

pose a serious hazard. Hats with a safety release mechanism, or bucket hats without ears, are recommended. • Sunglasses: Some kids love these as a fashion accessory – but they are also important to protect young eyes from UV radiation damage. The best styles are close fitting wraparound sunglasses that stop UV radiation rays from getting in from the side. • Sunscreen: Sunscreen is an important sun protection measure, however it does not offer 100 percent protection from the sun. To get the most protection, sunscreen should be applied 20 minutes before going outside. Use broadspectrum SPF30+ water resistant sunscreen on areas not protected by clothing. Remember to reapply every two hours or more often if wiped, sweated or washed off. • Clothing, hats and shade provide the best coverage for babies and very young children.

DRESS SUN SMART • There are lots of cool, comfortable and fashionable clothes that offer sun protection, but they have to cover the skin to protect it. If wearing shorts go for knee length and select loose fitting clothes made from fabric which does not let light through.

BE A SMART ROLE MODEL • Children copy those around them and learn by imitation. It is unfair to expect a child to wear a hat and sunscreen if you do not do the same. If you adopt sun smart behaviour it is more likely that children around you will pick up on the habit.

• Swimwear: Rash vests are sold in all sizes and when teamed with long shorts are a sun-sensible swimwear solution. Look for vests that have an ultraviolet protection factor (UPF) level on their tags. The higher the number, the greater the protection from UV radiation. A UPF of 50+ gives the best protection.

EXPLAIN TO CHILDREN WHY SUN SAFETY IS IMPORTANT • Children respond better when an issue is explained to them and they benefit greatly from encouragement. Discussing what UV radiation is and why you need to cover up can be an important step in starting lifelong sun protection behaviour.

• Hats: Hats should be worn whenever children are outside and provide protection to the face, neck and ears. Broad brimmed hats should have a brim at least 7.5 centimetres wide. Bucket style hats should have a 6 centimetre brim. Legionnaire style hats should have a flap that covers the neck and meets the sides of the front peak to provide protection to the sides of the face. Baseball caps are not recommended. Remember that cords in hats can get caught in playground equipment and

TIPS FOR PARENTS • Parents with babies should always carry a tube of sunscreen, a bottle of boiled water, a small sheet or blanket, a soft legionnaires cap and a lightweight baggy romper suit which covers the legs and arms.


• Establish good summer habits at home by making sun protection an everyday practice. Encourage children to apply sunscreen every morning after they brush their teeth.
