Insects are the foundations upon which all wildlife relies on to survive. We are often asked how to increase the numbers and variety of wildlife in gardens big and small. It’s very simple, just increase the insects and the rest won’t be far behind. Establishing insect biodiversity in your garden is easy and there are several ways to achieve this: leaving dead wood for beetles, building insect hotels, creating a pond, planting trees or growing wildflowers. Dead and decaying wood in shaded and undisturbed areas creates vital habitat for insects including the endangered stag beetle. These magnificent creatures are a joy to watch and a guaranteed way to get kids excited about native wildlife. Since WWII 97% of our traditional meadows and grasslands have disappeared. This has made life particularly difficult for our native bees, hoverflies and butterflies who rely on the variety of food that wildflowers offer them. Wildflower is versatile and low maintenance, working easily alongside mown lawn or as a green roofing material on the countless unused shed roofs and structures in our gardens. A patch of wildflower, regardless of size, will make a massive impact to our insects as well as being a beautiful addition to your garden.

Book Reviews SUMMER 2019 ‘West’ by Carys Davies (Paperback £8.99) In this slim first novel not a word is wasted and it grips the reader from the beginning, demanding a single read session. Cy Bellman is jolted out of grief by a curious notion: that dinosaurs might still exist in the unexplored territories of the West. Despite ridicule, he sets off. Seasons pass in a sentence as Bellman makes his way west and he is not alone on the move. Native Americans displaced from eastern territories for a few trinkets cross his path. Bellman is joined by a Shawnee boy called “Old Woman from a Distance” and their physical hardships and the grand open spaces of the West are described with calmness and without fuss. A fantastic debut novel.

‘Expectation’ by Anna Hope (Hardback £12.99) Expectation follows three young women in London as their adult lives unfold. I began the book with reservations, not overly excited by the premise, but Hope’s writing swiftly and smoothly drew me in and I stayed up late to read to the last page. The characters develop into people hit hard by the unexpected realities of life, responding sometimes with chaos and sometimes with grace. Hope conveys the excitement of the intellectual sparks that can ignite a lifelong friendship. Expectation is a skilful blend of elegant writing and satisfying emotional depth.

‘Orange World’ by Karen Russell (Hardback, £14.99) Karen Russell is a tremendous writer. Her gift is in tilting the world slightly on its axis, so the reader experiences the familiar blended with a compelling strangeness. Each story has its own unique atmosphere. Madame Bovary’s Greyhound explores the tug of war between loyalty and yearning for life; Orange World shows maternal devotion put to the test, and in The Gondoliers, four sisters in post-flood Florida evolve to navigate the new world. Other stories walk us into the grey area between science and the supernatural, grounded in the tangible experience and emotion of everyday life. Russell’s elegant and innovative way of describing the world is dazzling.

Gardening Matters PROPAGATION

It’s summer, my A Level examining is almost over and your gardens are looking fab, with the hard work done for the moment. So, let’s look at propagation, just for laughs. In gardening terms, propagation means ‘free plants’, although, to be strictly accurate, it’s from the Latin ‘propagare’, meaning ‘to spread/increase’ (hence ‘propaganda’: language is so cool). There are several methods of propagation, but here is Part 1: seeds and layering. Seeds are the simplest way of propagating and are produced by pollination, with the help of insects/the wind/people/animals and pets/butterflies and moths. Some plants - eg pansy/pea/tomato - are self-pollinating, meaning they produce an exact replica of the plant. The advantages of seed? More chance of genetic variation; a greater number of offspring from the parent plant; less skill required (always a bonus in my case); essential for annuals and biennials; it’s cheaper; less chance of passing on disease; it’s easy to store. Some seeds, eg poppy/love-in-a-mist/aquilegia , are ready straightaway; others, eg acer and peony, need storing. Store green seeds in polybags, dry seeds in paper bags, and all seeds in dry, cold, dark conditions if possible. If you’re working with plants with low germination rates, eg peas and carrots, you may want to consider chitting or ‘pre-sprouting’. To chit seeds, put them in

a paper towel, put the towel in a plastic bag and spray it until it’s wet. Leave the bag in a bright, shady part of the house, checking daily for root growth progress. As SOON as the tiny tip begins to emerge from the seeds, it’s important that you sow them outside as you would normal seeds, as you don’t want the seeds to grow into the paper towel. Some seeds have a thick seed coat and need to be nicked in order to germinate well. You can use nail clippers to chip away a piece of the seed coat, but go carefully with a knife. You can usually tell which seeds might benefit from such a treatment: if they’re very small/fine/straw-like, eg zinnias or marigolds, you don’t need to nick them. Many tree and shrub seeds, plus seeds such as morning glory and other large seeds, do need nicking in order to germinate. Propagate plants by placing a young stem, still attached to the mother plant, in contact with soil, either in the ground or in a pot – layering it. This will encourage it to send out roots. Pin down the stem, and once rooted, the branch can be severed from the mother plant, roots and all, and planted elsewhere. It’s best done in April, May and early autumn, as roots form more quickly at these times. Forsythia (yuck, yellow) propagates itself by layering every flipping branch that bends to the ground. So far, so exciting, and so many free plants. Future delights include division and cuttings. I bet you can scarcely wait. Happy hols.

St Andrew’s School

MAY FAIR St Andrew’s Primary School May Fair took place on the school field on Saturday 18th May 2019. The May Fair raised money to provide every class with an attractive and stimulating book corner, fostering the enjoyment of books that is key to children’s reading success. The theme was “All the Fun of the Fair” and traditional stalls included a coconut shy, crockery smash, bottle tombola and tin can alley, as well as archery run by 1st Cobham Scout Group and Beat the Goalie with Chelsea Ladies Goalkeeper Hedvig Lindahl. The main arena saw performances by maypole dancers from St Andrew’s and students of Susan Roberts Academy, as well as a fiercely contested family Tug of War and a Lads vs Dads football match featuring the St Andrew’s Year 6 boys team that have topped the league this season. The Mayor of Elmbridge, Mary Sheldon was in attendance to judge the children’s and adult’s entries in the Bake Off competition. Huge thanks go to event sponsors Specsavers, Curchods, Taylor Wimpey and Alsford Timber.

The End is Nigh - well for Windows 7

On January 14th 2020 Microsoft will officially end extended support of Windows 7. Yes in less than 6 months Windows 7 will not receive any software support or updates. But what does this actually mean for you? In very simple terms it means that your Windows 7 device will become less and less useful if you use the device for any internet connected activity. For example if you use the machine for online banking, your bank will stop you gaining access to your online accounts, as they view your computer as being a security risk to their systems. Bit by bit this will become widespread and most online shopping systems will block your ability to carry out transactions with them for the same reason. We are not saying your machine will suddenly stop working on the 14 January. Your files and photos will still be accessible, the machine will power on as before, but you will be at greater risk to security breaches, and your ability to communicate and collaborate with others will be much reduced.

What can you do about this? 1: Upgrade the software on your machine to Windows 10 (the worlds most used operating system). This does carry a cost of ÂŁ130 for the software alone, and your machine may not be designed to work efficiently with Windows 10 Or 2: Replace your computer with a new Windows 10 machine. With costs as low as ÂŁ250 for new machines this is probably the most economical route and you get a brand new, upto date machine, with a full warranty. We can transfer all your data from the old to the new machine and ensure the new machine is ready for the years ahead, with minimal disruption for you. Beat the rush- act now

Walking Holiday, St Ives, June 1992 (with Holiday Fellowship)

“A walking holiday”, said my friend, “Really, Marion, you must be round the bend, You even creak getting out of bed And find it hard to turn your head Manoeuvring the car when in reverseCliff walking will be even worse. You’re out of puff if it isn’t level And Cornish cliffs are the very devil. What about blisters and aching feet? Constant thirst and prickly heat?” I wrote these lines before I came, Are my feelings still the same? These things, of course, may never happen, But I didn’t know then about ticks on bracken. Coastal walks with views superb, “What’s that flower? What’s that bird”? Cornish styles are not for you If you’re short of leg and five foot two. The spirit is willing but the flesh is weak, Especially when it concerns my feet. With comfort stops all shapes and sizes Rocks and bushes yield surprises. My sense of direction being rather dodgy, I could’ve missed land’s End or even Clodgy. The hardest thing throughout the week Was rememb’ring what I’d ticked to eat, Excellent services, led by Keith, With food, of course, beyond belief, Smashing company, a lovely week, I’ll come again, but with different feet!!

WHAT’S ON DURING JULY/AUG

CINEMA SCREENINGS UNDER THE SUMMER’S SKY

CHILDREN’S STORIES IN A BEAUTIFUL SETTING

THIS August, join Painshill for cinema screenings in their stunning landscaped gardens. The Serpentine Lake and Gothic Temple will make an incredible backdrop for two of the best films of 2018. On Friday, August 16 they will be showing Bohemian Rhapsody  and on Saturday, August 17 they screen A Star is Born. Winner of four Oscars and the Golden Globe for Best Motion Picture, Bohemian Rhapsody stars Rami Malek in an extraordinary performance as singer Freddie Mercury. In an enthralling celebration of Queen and their music, the film follows the band’s meteoric rise, their revolutionary sound, Freddie’s solo career and chronicles the band’s reunion and one of the greatest performances in rock history. In  A Star is Born  four-time Oscar nominee Bradley Cooper and music superstar Lady Gaga fuse their considerable talents to depict the raw and passionate tale of Jack and Ally, two artistic souls coming together, on stage and in life. Theirs is a complex journey through the beauty and the heartbreak of a relationship struggling to survive. Films will start at 8:30pm but the gate will open at 7.00pm leaving you plenty of time to also enjoy the garden. Bring a picnic along or purchase food and light refreshments. There will be a fully licensed bar on site. Tickets are £16 and they are on sale now! Book on the Painshill website at www.painshill.co.uk.

THIS summer, Cat’s Grin Theatre Company bring entertaining and enlightening productions of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and The Wind in the Willows to the beautiful landscape gardens of Painshill, Cobham. How mad is the hatter? What does the dodo do? Questions are answered and answers are questioned in a deceptively simple, yet highly original re-telling of Lewis Carroll’s classic on Saturday 3rd August and Saturday 10th August. Audiences are introduced to many of the extraordinary characters that our eponymous heroine encounters during her wanderings in Wonderland. Hold tight for rolling heads, rocketing sneezes, skimming plates and darting jam tarts. Kenneth Grahame’s unforgettable assembly of animals are lovingly re-created with the Cat’s Grin Trademarks of wit and style on Sunday 4th August and Sunday 11th August From an idyllic riverside setting to the final battle for Toad Hall, this enchanting interactive production about selfless friendship is told with high energy, humour and audience participation. What better setting to enjoy these stories than the award-winning Painshill landscape. Tickets are £12.50 for adults and £10 for children and they are on sale now! Book on the Painshill website at www.painshill.co.uk.

COBHAM CEDAR CLUB W.I. From Anne Yeates Here is a short quiz about cheese. Which end of a wedge of cheese is the tastiest? What makes it yellow? Which European people eat the most cheese? (It’s not the French). Which cheese is best for grilling on toast?

Members of CCCWI were far more knowledgeable about this favourite food after a visit from international cheese judge John Pearson. Drawing on his long career as a cheese buyer, John followed his entertaining talk with a tutored tasting. And for something completely different, CCC members visited the Old Royal Naval College at Greenwich to see the magnificent restoration of the Painted Hall, described by our excellent guide as Britain’s Sistine Chapel. Glorifying William and Mary, founders of the hospital for former sailors, the fabulous scenes call on mythology, astrology, naval history and science. The next CCC meeting is on Thursday 11th July when cellist Malcolm Wells will give his talk, ‘So Far, So Good’. (There is no August meeting) Visit www.cobhamcedarclubwi.uk to see our range of activities. (By the way, the answers are: The thick end, as the wheel from which it is cut matures from the outside; beta carotene in grass; Greeks, with 24kg per person per year; Gruyere, much better than Cheddar apparently. No, we didn’t know either.)

FORMULA ONE - THE KNOWLEDGE (SECOND EDITION)

Memory Lane, the pathway to personal history, can be a revelation of treasured moments, not always easily brought back to mind - and that’s when help, particularly from printed records, can be an absolute pleasure. From a personal point of view, that is what has happened to me in the form of a newly issued volume. Vast in its content, in the considerable and impressive shape of the tome, “Formula One - The Knowledge” 2nd Edition. In 544 pages, with 90 pictures, I have been captivated in recapturing my days as a world wandering F1 journalist. Writing on the thrill-a-minute grand prix world championship scene for the Daily Mirror when, at its most popular, the paper served five million readers a day. I revelled in shared lunches and dinners in far away places, in the one-to-one company of the likes of British legend Nigel Mansell, wonder-man Ayrton Senna, Niki Lauda, Sir Jackie Stewart, John Watson, John Surtees, and many, many more, Even Hollywood mega star Paul Newman, a committed car race fanatic and gifted driver, with whom I once spent a week. Many of them remain firm friends to this day. I hope you don’t think I am name dropping; they and their GPs were all in a very enjoyable day’s work for me. And, thanks to “The Knowledge” moments spent watching them race have all come flooding back and stirred forgotten and extra-special memories. I often disregard the publisher’s blurb, backing a book, but I agree with every single word of the support for this classic. And therefore, I shall give it an airing. Here goes.... And I quote: “The updated and extended 2nd edition of BY TED MACAULEY

this popular title is the most complete record of Formula 1 statistics ever published. More than 1200 sections on the drivers, the cars, the engines, the tyres and the circuits. Original ideas for analysis that won’t be found anywhere else. Performance records of every driver, every constructor and every engine make, to have taken part in F1. “Amazing coincidences, amusing anecdotes and many funny stories, as well as some serious ones. A summary of regulation changes since 1950, detailed insight into the variety of qualifying procedures throughout the years, a quick reference guide to every grand prix result. All the facts and figures you could ever want to know. “It is the only book ever to focus in such detail on Formula One records and to contain many new ideas for looking at Formula One. A new collection of carefully selected photographs depicting the history of Formula One. “This second edition by author David Hayhoe, has been entirely updated with three seasons of updated information. Apart from that, the content has been considerably extended with many sections re-designed featuring a complete new set of images.” So there! And I could not agree more. Veloce Publishing, as respected a publisher of motorsport books and records as you could find anywhere in the world, has done a fab job. It is priced at £55 and worth every penny.

COMPETITION TIME!!!!

I am chuffed to be giving one away. Free Gratis!!! All you have to do to win is email the answer to the following question to ros@looklocamagazine before 10/07/19: what year did Nigel Mansell clinch his F1 world title?
