Alert for high temperatures State weather agency AEMET has issued a special bulletin on the arrival of ‘very hot air’ from Africa today (Wednesday, June 26). They note that temperatures could pass 40ºC in the interior of the country, with the possibly that the mercury could rise above 42ºC in the Ebro valley from Thursday to Sunday. The situation is due to last

at least until Sunday, June 30 and ‘could continue into July’. Alicante university climatology lab has noted that the heat will be less extreme on the Costa Blanca, with cooling breezes off the sea helping to keep temperatures down. However, inland areas of the province could see the mercury approach 40ºC. Temperatures will stay

high at night, not falling below 22ºC in some areas. The summer officially began on Friday (June 21) at 17.54 and runs until Monday, September 23. According to state weather agency AEMET, ‘it is likely once again to be warmer than in a normal year’. Full report in Friday’s Costa Blanca News

The iconic Mirador at the top of the Old Town has been demolished as part of a €1.2m excavation project for what are thought to be archaeological remains of a fort. But starting at the beginning of the peak summer season appears odd and will no doubt leave many holidaymakers disappointed. See page 3

Flagging up quality Orihuela has been handed five Q quality flags for beaches in the municipality. Mayor Emilio Bascuñana said the award from the national ICTE tourism insti-

tute shows the good condition of the sands. He said that Orihuela Costa is one of the ‘most attractive’ tourist destinations in the area.

Visitors are advised that there is plenty of free parking available at the Palau, University carpark, San Gerónimo and Garganes-Basseta carparks.

Preserving natural habitats

More than 50 people including volunteers and land owners have participated in clean-up and restoration works at the Cañar watercourse in La Muela-Cabo Tiñoso regional park in Cartagena. The works were launched by the environmental association ANSE and included removing invasive

plant species, planting native species and guaranteeing that they will able to survive. ANSE stressed that invasive species are one of the main threats to biodiversity and that watercourses play an important role by preserving the habitats and the water resources. The works are included in

a pioneering environmental project which involves land owners. The owners learn that their land, crops and orchards are more protected if the surrounding natural habitats are protected and maintained. The project is supported by the Ministry for Ecological Transition.

With the arrival of summer, Calpe town hall has once again launched a programme for the prevention and detection of the tiger mosquito. From June to October, a specialist company will be responsible for placing traps in different areas of the town to conduct a census of the insect, which will enable them to act more forcefully in the areas where its presence is detected. They will also carry out prevention steps in the rest of the town. The town hall reminded residents that they play a fundamental role in the fight against the tiger mosquito, as it is estimated that more than 90% of the places where they breed are in private gardens. The larvae can be found

where water accumulates, such as fountains, water butts, plant pots and vases. The council has asked if them anybody detects around their property, to contact them so that they can take action to prevent them. The town hall has asked

for a grant of €3,630 from the department of public health for the costs of fighting the tiger mosquito. It is an invasive species native to south east Asia, capable of breeding in almost any water accumulation that has laid still for more than five days.

Benidorm’s iconic landmark gone! grimage up to the top to get breathtaking views of both sides of Benidorm and take photographs of the Levante and Poniente beaches. However, works must be completed by mid-November to adhere with the strict stipulations and deadlines of the subsidy which they were granted to carry out these works. Once completed the mayor Toni Perez stated that paving similar to that on the Poniente promenade will be used, but only in blue and white and the balustrade around the perimeter will also be replaced, using a more durable material. It has not been disclosed whether another structure similar to that which was demolished will be rebuilt or if it will just be a huge empty space.

At the end of last week, workmen cordoned off the upper part of the Mirador at the top of the Old Town and diggers moved in to begin demolition of one of the resorts most visited landmarks, flattening the iconic structure that stood in the middle. The €1.2 million project is an archaeological excavation to find the remains of an old fort dating back to the 1300’s, evidence of which was first discovered during preliminary digs in 1993 and 2014. Culturally and historically it is very important for the resort, however it has left many, especially holidaymakers aghast that the authorities have chosen the beginning of the busy summer season to start these works. Thousands make the pil-

Smash and grab suspects arrested Two prolific thieves have been arrested in Cartagena by the National Police following a series of thefts from vehicles in the city. They had many criminal records for similar offences and have been remanded in custody by a judge.

Bowel cancer care revised A new pre and post-operative protocol designed to improve recovery for patients with bowel cancer has been implemented at Torrevieja and Vinalopó (Elche) hospitals. According to Ribera Salud, the company which manages public healthcare in these areas for the regional government, this includes a programme of ‘prehabilitation’ for fragile patients, and intensifies fast-track post-op-

erative care for all patients with the condition. “The objective is to reduce the response to surgical stress and the morbidity rate from this kind of surgery, and to achieve more comfortable and quicker recover of patients,” said a spokeswoman. This involves nutrition, rehabilitation, surgery, anaesthesiology and psychology. Head of proctology Pilar Serrano said that this multidisciplinary work will reduce

deaths from complications, days spent in hospital and readmission rates, as well as involving patients and their carers more in decision making. Her department, which covers the catchment areas of both hospitals, diagnoses about 200 cases of bowel cancer per year and was recognised for excellence in 2018 by the Spanish coloproctology association (AECP/FAECP).

...And Albir celebrated on the beach

Altea’s San Juan tradition

Calp News

More than 500 men took part in one of Altea’s oldest and rather unusual traditions last Friday evening, dating back to 1617 to celebrate the dawning of San Juan. A 25metre tree was cut down from the banks of the Algar river and carried through the streets of the old town and at

9pm, placed into a hole in front of the church. Along the way they stopped every few metres,

where tradition dictates that residents would throw buckets of water over them from their balconies to cool them down! A band followed the procession and copious amounts of red wine, drunk straight from earthenware jugs helped them complete this mammoth task. The route was lined with bemused visitors and holidaymakers, all enjoying and embracing the atmosphere like none they’d ever witnessed before. This tradition always takes place on the last Friday before San Juan.

Like many beaches up and down the coast, thousands turned out on the El Raco beach on Sunday evening to welcome in San Juan. Albir was one of the only beaches which allowed a bonfire, which was lit just before midnight under the careful watch of the firefighters. Many descended throughout the afternoon and early evening, setting up tables and chairs – and in some cases, even a tablecloth,

joining together with friends and plenty of food and wine. As midnight approached the shoreline was jam packed and at the strike of midnight many took the plunge into what was exceptionally warm waters. Once the bonfire had burnt down considerably, many then jumped over, with the Red Cross standing by in case of any casualties of which thankfully there weren’t any.

Calpe…water sports for everyone! Calpe is a paradise for water sport lovers. Crystal clear seawater, the mild climate with more than 3,000 hours of sunshine a year and a singular landscape crowned by the emblematic rock make this a unique place for the practice of all kinds of water sport. e Real Club Náutico de Calpe, located at the foot of the Peñon de Ifach, o ers a great range of water

Calpe arrest over car fraud A man was arrested in Calpe last week, after claiming his car had been stolen and crashed, when in fact he had been the driver of the vehicle at the time. Initially, the 21-year-old Moroccan reported the theft of his car on the morning of June 9. It was subsequently found with serious damage in the area of Pla Roig in Calpe. The car had crashed with quite some force into the wall of a private property and been abandoned. While the police arranged for the car to be taken away,

an investigation into the theft commenced, and it was at this time that inconsistencies began to arise regarding the circumstances surrounding the stolen vehicle. Guardia civil agents then interviewed the man once more, who finally confessed that he had in fact crashed his own vehicle and lied about the car theft. He was therefore arrested and charged with falsifying a crime. He appeared in court and was released on charge pending a further trial.

Skilful burglars concern police The ease with which some burglars have been able to open certain types of doors locks and/or domestic security equipment, without leaving signs of them being forced, is concerning Elche local police. They have been trying to raise awareness of the problem to residents on social networks and at neighbourhood security talks promoted by district mayors. One such recent incident was a on June 20, when residents of a property on Calle Miguel HernĂĄndez reported that a light was on in a house which they thought was empty because the owner was away for medical treatment. Local and National Po-

lice officers responded to find the door open and two men inside, one of them with rubble in his hands from trying to rip out a safe. Another two members of the gang were intercepted at the entrance to the communal terrace, trying to hide a mobile phone and other tools used for breakins, including a sledgehammer, chisel and screwdrivers. The four suspects, aged between 32 and 36, were arrested and taken to a medical centre then the police station, and after the owner was located a relative came and closed up the house until forensics could come to inspect the premises.

Man arrested over bar brawl knife attack Benidorm National Police were finally able to arrest a 51-year-old Spanish man for allegedly injuring two other men with a knife at a bar on the outskirts of Benidorm. The man was apparently in an agitated state inside the bar, shouting at other customers. At that moment two men who knew him, entered the bar and attempted to calm him down, but the aggressor got even more agitated and started to fight with his friends, who received various punches. At one point, the aggressor took out a knife from his trouser pocket and slashed one of the vic-

tims across his face and neck, causing two deep wounds that bled profusely. The second man tried to stop the attack and received various injuries but they were less serious. The first victim was attended to by ambulance staff and was taken urgently to Villajoyosa’s Marina Baixa hospital. By this time, the attacker had fled the scene. Benidorm National Police from the Judicial Police brigade initiated an investigation to identify the aggressor; this was not difficult thanks to his friends cooperating fully with officers.

The 51-year-old knew the police were after him, so he changed his lifestyle completely to hide himself from the police. However, officers discreetly staked out possible locations, and he was eventually caught days later when he went to pick up his girlfriend from her work. He was arrested and charged with attempted murder and sent in front of a Benidorm court. The police report caused a stir when it first hit online press, as it was initially accompanied by a photo of a bar that had nothing to do with the incident at all, this was rapidly removed.

EU told to tighten up on imports The farmers’ trade union COAG has warned over the arrival of plant ‘plagues’ from non-EU countries due to poor health control checks at customs points. COAG spokesman Andrés Góngora pointed out that tomatoes, courgettes, peppers, almonds, olives, citrus fruits and cucumbers have been infected by different viruses which are difficult to exterminate. He said that the ‘Tuta absoluta’ pest had reached the EU from South America in 2006

and farmers on the Spanish Mediterranean coast are still struggling to exterminate it as different protection measures and biological treatments are needed. “The way cucumbers were grown had to be changed to protect them from other imported plagues,” he said. He added that the Xylella fastidiosa plague is seriously damaging almond and olive trees of Alicante province.” Sr Góngora asked the EU authorities in a meeting this

week to establish the same production requirements and food safety standards for non-EU growers as EU farmers have to face. He claimed that they are not allowed to use certain products, but non-EU farmers have no such restrictions but are still able to sell products freely in the European market. “Additionally, their fruits and vegetables are not properly checked at the food safety customs and we get their plagues,” he said.

Tiny trumpeter triumphs again

Benitachell contributes towards CO2 reductions

A remarkably talented young local trumpeter, 11-year-old Alexandro García from Almoradí has won two more international prizes in the last month. He was awarded the Rising Stars Grand Prix International Music Competition in Berlin and the OPUS 2019 international music contest in Cracow, which brings his total of national and international prizes to 30. Alexandro, who studies at the Pedro Terol

music conservatory in Orihuela, won first prize in the junior (up to 12 years) and soloist categories in Berlin, the third year in a row that he has been among the prize-winners at this prestigious event that attracts some of the most talented young musicians all over the world. He also dazzled the jury and triumphed over more than 100 competitors at the first edition of the OPUS awards in Poland, organised by the Life and Art foundation.

Play areas for pets and people A visit to the first play area for dogs in Crevillente was one of the last acts of outgoing mayor César Augusto Asencio. Located next to La Rambla urbanisation, work on it was finished on June 14 and it was opened the following day. Sr Asencio explained that the project was carried out by the company FCC as an extra service which they offered in their bid for the municipality’s street cleaning contract. The area covers 450 square metres in which dogs

can be let off their leads to enjoy various play equipment that has been installed for them. Next to this, the town hall has installed a recreational area for the pets’ owners, which covers 2,200m2, in which there is children’s play apparatus, a zip-line, exercise equipment and picnic tables. The company also has the necessary materials to install another canine area in the municipality, the location of which can be decided by the new council.

The public swimming pool in Benitachell has become a benchmark in sustainability following a boiler replacement. With the help of a grant of €8,787.60 from Ivace (The Valencian Institute of Business Competitiveness), which funded 40% of the cost of exchange, a new propane gas boiler will reduce CO2 emissions by 87 tonnes per year. With an efficiency of 105%, it will heat the pool water and the

changing room showers. The objective of replacing the old diesel boiler was to reduce both energy consumption and the impact on the environment.

Puerto de Xabia Lodge hold garden party fundraiser

Two more donations from Giving4Giving Gary Burr from Giving4Giving donated €1,000 to local Albir residents Rob Adema (pictured with Gary) and Hardy Janssen towards the ‘Make A Wish Foundation’ – a worldwide charity granting wishes to children between the ages of 3 and 18 suffering from life threatening illnesses. Over the last couple of years, the pair have raised more than €20,000 for the charity and Gary wanted to make a donation to this life-changing organisation. In the same week he also

made a further €1,000 donation to the AECC – National Spanish Cancer charity, which was accepted by Pamela Dawson-Tasker, president of the Alfaz branch. G4G continue to make donations to local charities in Spain – half cancer related and half to other deserving causes. They have just opened another shop in Albir and always need more volunteers and donations – house clearances and collections of large items available on request.

Local Freemasons from Puerto de Xabia Lodge recently held their annual summer party to raise funds for the local charity, Denia children's home. It was held at popular local restaurant, Casa De La Pizza in Costa Nova, Javea who provided a fantastic barbeque for almost fifty Masons, wives and their invited guests. The party started off at 2pm and the restaurant was almost full from the start. A wide selection of barbequed meats and vegetables were on offer along with several types of salad. This was followed by a selection of desserts which were clearly enjoyed by everyone. During, and after, lunch the Masons were royally entertained by the music and singing of popular local entertainer Ian Henry who played nonstop for almost three hours to the great enjoyment of all the guests. A charity raffle was held in which all the prizes were donated by Masons and their wives. A beautiful pendant necklace was kindly donated by the owner of ASR Jewelry, Mrs Alessandra Ragusa, wife of Bro Alvaro Ochoa, one of our Spanish Masons. A beautiful bouquet of flowers was donated by Mrs Fiona Deppe owner of Fiona's Flowerpower, wife of Bro Peter de Graaf one of our Dutch Masons and many other gifts including, more flowers, wine chocolates and glasses. The raffle raised €245 which will be donated to the Master's charity. This year Worshipful Master Jim Campbell, one of our Scottish Masons has de-

cided to support the children's home in Denia during his year in office. This was a great after-

noon which was enjoyed by all the guests and also raised a tidy sum of money for a local Spanish charity.

Do you want to lose the Akira bookstall? Without your help this will happen and we will lose an income of around €6,500 a year. We need a strong person to drive a van to the market with all the tables books, gazebos etc. then to set up the stalls. This has to be done by 8am and then taking down the stalls at 2pm. The bookstall is every second and fourth Friday of the month.If we get a van it will be much easier as it can be packed and left on the carpark! We are also looking for a van for AKIRA.

IF you know anyone who is willing to donate one or selling one please let us know. We need people to sell the UK books. Sadly after 7 years of running the UK bookstall Martin and Lynn Griffin feel they want to step back and we thank them for all their hard work over the years. If we get enough people we can run a rota between 9am and 1.30pm.Please try and help us we need this income. Its only two Mornings a month! Please contact Maggie on email or 96 574 4449

This photo is not very nice and is just one of the eight abandoned cats left behind the first green bin on the road to Pinos. They are not feral and we don’t know how long they have been abandoned. Sally at ARC had a message from the lady who found them. This female in the photo has now been taken to Jose at Bernia Vets, Jalon. These cats belonged to someone and because they are not feral have been unable to fend for themselves, domesticated cats cannot cope or hunt for food, the lady who found them trapped one and took to be sterilised. Now Jalon Valley ARC is helping but our funds are low so if anyone can help please donate to our Facebook fund raiser or by Paypal to

The cat in the photo has been blood tested (negative) and is now on a drip to rehydrate her and she has had antibiotics. She will stay at the vet until better, she is emaciated and, as you can see, is in a sorry state. All these cats are going to need ongoing veterinary care until they are well, then hopefully we can rehome them, so any help you can give is greatly appreciated. Many thanks you for your support, it is much appreciated.

HELP Vega Baja Connections Team is expanding Following a recent committee meeting HELP Vega Baja (registered charity) have announced that they are expanding the number of trained Listeners they have in their Connections Team in order to cope with the increased demand for the service. The Connections Team offers a 24-hour confidential, emotional support helpline on 965 021 552 and has proved to be a muchneeded support for people who are struggling emotionally, since the service was introduced in July 2018. Calls to the team of

trained Listeners cover a variety of issues including grief, depression, addiction, suicide to name just a few. With the backing of the charity that has been supporting people for over 35 years in the Vega Baja area, callers to the service receive emotional support and where necessary, practical support is often available through the charity. Michele Masson, President told us “our Listeners are working incredibly hard and it is becoming very apparent that we need to bring in new Listeners to the team in order to cope

with the number of calls we receive. Anyone who would like to know more about the role should contact our charity secretary, Richard Garland on 966 723 733 or email us direct at The Connection Team volunteers, once trained, will join the rota to ensure that we are available when people need us – often at their darkest moments. It is an extremely rewarding role and one that requires a special individual who can show empathy, is non-judgmental and can also be a team player. We need both

male and female Listeners of all ages who are prepared to make a commitment to the service. The charity has invested in an extensive training package for all volunteers which will provide them with the listening skills required for the calls that they may receive whilst on duty. Volunteers will be given a mobile phone in order that they may take calls privately in their own environment. Ongoing mentoring and support will also be provided. The next training course will be held in August or September, one day per

week over 4 weeks (Saturdays) in our San Miguel Centre. Final dates will be agreed once we are aware of number of candidates interested in the role. I would also like to remind people that if they are going through a difficult time, please do not struggle alone. Call the helpline on 965 021 552.

our friendly members. Our next meeting is at a new venue for us and they have promised us a very warm welcome. We are going to YOU, in Albir near the Sabadell Bank on July 6, 12pm for coffee and 1pm for lunch. If you would like more information please call Marilyn on 965 864 394.

Fun and games at Hondón Valley Legion The first meeting of the Branch at its new venue proved extremely successful. Following the formal part where the Chairman updated members on recent changes to the Legion line up, members settled into an evening of fun and games. As well as the “normal” darts, table skittles and shove ha’penny (50 cents) there were the more unusual games. One member, George, correctly guessed the weight of a bottle of whiskey. The “rat down a drain pipe” grew great crowds of participants, as did the “duck shooting gallery” and fairground “grabber” machine. Rhoda, who “downed” the most ducks in the shooting gallery surprised herself at her fantastic shooting ability, beating some members who thought they were “crack shots”! Our new venue gave us lots of space to display all the various games. The Branch meets on the third Tuesday of each month (except August) at El Fogon, Hondón de los Frailes 7pm for 7.30pm and visitors

Rhoda, winner of the duck shooting

and guests are most welcome. A summer party is planned for July 18 and for information on this event and any other Branch matters, please contact our secretary by email on hondonvalley.secretary@ or go to our website: See more in this Friday's Costa Blanca News (South edition).

Want to stock up before Brexit? Ten top tips for clever bulk-buying By Vicky Shaw, P.A. Discount deals and Brexit uncertainty are encouraging people to bulk-buy, but be savvy if you want to avoid waste later on. By Vicky Shaw. Nine in 10 shoppers claim to be committed bulkbuyers, new research has found. And with 89% of people saying they buy in bulk, it's not just a good deal that's enticing consumers to stock up on items they won't immediately use. Across the UK, one in 10 (10%) are stockpiling grocery

items as a reaction to Brexit and uncertainty over how this will affect prices, according to the research from So far, these shoppers have spent an average of ÂŁ214 on items for their "Brexit cupboards". The top 10 most popular items for people to bulk-buy are toilet paper, washing powder, toothpaste, shampoo and conditioner, baked beans, frozen food, soap, pasta, rice and meat, the survey found. But for many, their bulkbuys can often end up going

How... to save on your summer wardrobe

It may be hard to believe with the weather, but summer is here and for many that means splashing out on a new wardrobe for holidays and social events. Here are some tips from on how to get a new summer wardrobe without breaking the bank: 1. Shop your existing wardrobe

Look at what you've already got and consider how you can accessorise your existing clothes differently to put a new twist on them, perhaps by adding an eyecatching pair of shoes or statement jewellery. Rather than going for tried-andtested clothing combinations, try to mix and match items you haven't put together as a single outfit before. Shaking your wardrobe up a bit may even give you the same feeling of change as buying new clothes would. 2. Invest in wardrobe staples It seems like every month or two a new trend is on the radar. But instead of spend-

ing your hard-earned money on items that might end up in shops' bargain bins next month, try and go for items that will never go out of style - such as a wellcut blazer and some quality fabric jeans. 3. Go vintage

Fashion often goes in cycles. So instead of buying brand new clothes imitating styles that were in fashion years before, seek out originals, from charity shops, car boot sales or online auction sites. It's kinder to the environment and you won't risk someone else turning up to events in the same outfit. 4. Let go of what you don't need Pile up what you don't need into basic categories such as tops, trousers and jackets, then stay on the lookout for future car-boot sales in your area, or try selling them online. Selling old clothes is not just a way to make more space in your wardrobe, but also a great means of making quick money to reinvest in pieces you truly desire.

to waste, with 44% of consumers admitting they eventually throw away goods they'd previously stocked up on. In terms of why, some say they simply forget about the extra items they've bought, while others miss the chance to use them before they go out of date. Bulk-buys can also end up in the bin because there's nowhere at home to store them, the survey of over 2,100 people revealed. Adam Bullock, UK director of says: "Bulk buying is often not as savvy as it seems. Consumers are throwing goods in the bin and money down the drain by stocking up on items they either have no immediate use or space for. "It can be done right, when buying non-perishables and items like toilet roll, but it takes a time and planning to make sure it works for you and you're getting the best deals." Keen to stock up? Here are's top tips for being a clever bulk-buyer... 1. Do your maths Special offer labels can be enticing, but work out the cost per item or per gram to see how much you could save by buying multiple items rather than just one or two - it may not be as much as you think or anything at all. Use the calculator on your mobile phone if you need to.

2. Set a bulk-buying budget - just as you might for your regular shopping Weekly budgets are essential for ensuring you don't feel the pinch. If you decide to bulk-buy products, make sure you put away a little money each week, so you spread the cost evenly across the year. Doing a big bulk-buy shop can leave you short in the months to follow if you haven't planned for it. 3. Make a list of the items you regularly cook or use These will be the items that are most important to bulkbuy. This will stop you being distracted by deals for items you don't need. 4. Bulk-buy expensive items

use them immediately - or see if some can be frozen. 6. Check how much storage space you have before going shopping A lack of space could result in having to throw items away to make room for new purchases. 7. Shop big Buy from wholesalers and discount stores, who may have great deals when bulkbuying. 8. Join forces Pairing up with friends, family or colleagues means you can split the purchase and still end up with the same deal but without a large amount of stock to store at home.

Make a list of the expensive items you need such as washing powder and razors and make a point of looking for bulk-buy deals. As you don't need to buy them every week, you can wait for a good deal before stocking up.

9. Make note

5. Make more use of the freezer and canned foods

Having an overflowing amount of items can encourage people to use bigger amounts in a more wasteful way, knowing they have a back-up.

Don't bulk-buy perishable goods unless you're able to

Keep a note of sell-by-dates on items and make sure you are using products before buying more. 10. Only use the amounts you really need

Golden pumpkin curry

Egg and lettuce salad

Mimi Aye's recipes By Ella Walker, P.A. Golden pumpkin curry A quick veggie supper. "I'm one of those terrible carnivores and I strongly believe in the (semi joking) Burmese affliction of a-thar masar yat-de yaw-ga: 'The illness caused by the failure to eat meat'," says food writer MiMi Aye. "However, if this gorgeous pumpkin curry is on the table, for once I'll barely twitch. You can use any winter squash you like - it's very good made with kabocha squash or crown prince. If you want to make this a vegetarian dish, you can swap out the shrimp paste and fish sauce for an equal amount of Japanese miso." Ingredients: (Serves 2 as a main or 4-6 as a side) 90ml groundnut oil or other neutral-tasting oil 1tsp ground turmeric 1tsp ground coriander 1tsp ground cumin 1tsp paprika 8 fresh or dried curry leaves 2 medium onions, sliced 1 spring onion, green and white parts, shredded 4 garlic cloves, sliced 2cm piece of ginger, peeled and sliced 1 butternut or kabocha squash (Japanese pumpkin), peeled and cubed 1tbsp sugar

1tsp shrimp paste (belacan) 2tbsp fish sauce Rice to serve Method: 1. Heat the oil in a saucepan over a high heat. Add the turmeric, coriander, cumin, paprika and curry leaves to the oil and allow to sizzle for a few seconds. 2. Now turn the heat down to medium and add the onions, spring onion, garlic and ginger and fry for 10 minutes, until fragrant and the onions have wilted and some have crisped up. 3. Add the squash, sugar, shrimp paste and 300ml of water. Stir well. Cover and cook for 25 minutes, or until the squash is tender. Add the fish sauce, stir again and serve with steamed rice. Egg and lettuce salad A perfect picnic dish. "This is apparently the dish that my mother used to win the heart of my father," explains food writer MiMi Aye, author of new Burmese recipe collection, Mandalay. "They were at medical school together in Mandalay, and she was the only one out of the lot of them who could cook. Whenever the students went on a group picnic, everyone insisted she made this egg salad. It's simple and light, and gorgeous in a sandwich, or on toast (seriously)." Ingredients: (Serves 4) 1 round or butterhead lettuce 6 eggs 1tbsp crispy fried onions, homemade or shop-bought, to garnish For the dressing: 1tbsp groundnut oil or other neutral-tasting oil 2tbsp smooth or crunchy peanut butter 2tbsp fish sauce Juice of 1/2 lime

1/4tsp MSG or 1/2tbsp chicken or vegetable bouillon Method: 1. Mix the dressing ingredients together in a small bowl. 2. Separate the lettuce leaves, wash, drain thoroughly and tear each leaf in half. Place the torn leaves in a large salad bowl. 3. Soft boil the eggs: Place room temperature eggs in a saucepan, cover in cold water and heat on high until the eggs start to boil and bubble furiously. Immediately turn the heat down to medium and continue to simmer for another seven minutes. Remove from heat and submerge in cold, running water to stop the eggs cooking. Cool, peel and quarter them. 4. Drizzle the dressing all over the lettuce leaves and massage with your hands so the leaves become coated and slightly wilted. Add the cooled soft-boiled egg quarters and combine gently to avoid breaking them up. 5. Scatter the crispy fried onions on top and serve with plain rice or in a sandwich.

Fried fish curry

supermarkets) 120ml groundnut oil or other neutral-tasting oil, plus an extra 2tbsp For the sauce: 4 medium onions, sliced thinly 1/3 standard tin of chopped tomatoes (about 135g) 3 fresh tomatoes, diced 1tbsp fish sauce 1/4tsp MSG or 1tbsp chicken or vegetable bouillon For the garnish: 2 finger chillies Handful of coriander leaves, chopped Rice to serve Method: 1. Mix the salt, flour, turmeric and MSG in a large dish, then add the fish. Turn the fish over in the seasonings, making sure it is thoroughly coated. Heat the 120ml of oil in a wok or large frying pan

Resta ura nt . Pension Rooms for events


Fried fish curry Fragrant, warming and very fresh. "This dish is usually made with fish 'steaks', aka cutlets, but it is just as good with fillets or whole fish," explains food writer MiMi Aye. "The type of fish doesn't really matter either, as the luscious, spicy sauce is the thing, so it works equally well with, say, cod or salmon." Ingredients: (Serves 2-4) For the fish: 1tsp salt 2tbsp plain flour 1tsp ground turmeric 1/4tsp MSG or 1/2tbsp chicken or vegetable bouillon 1 whole sea bream or sea bass, or 4 basa or catfish slices (sold frozen in Asian

over a high heat until sizzling, then carefully add the fish. Fry for two to three minutes on each side. Remove the fish using a slotted spoon and set to one side on a dish. 2. In the same wok, heat the remaining two tablespoons of oil over a high heat and add the sauce ingredients. Fry for five minutes, tossing and stirring regularly. Turn the heat down to medium-high and continue to fry for another 10 minutes. Add the fish and the chillies, and toss gently in the sauce. Dish up on a platter, scatter the coriander leaves on top and serve with steamed rice.

Your stars for next week


21 Mar - 20 Apr


21 Apr - 21 May


22 May - 21 Jun


22 June - 23 Jul

In what could be a busy, if not frantic week, be prepared! Make sure that everyone does their bit and pull in any favours. Look for energy and talent in others and get them to use it. Being in charge comes naturally to you, especially when something is important. Something of a romantic nature stops you in your tracks at the weekend, but even this encounter can be very useful!

A big chance to learn something fascinating this week seems to be tied up with travel. This could be a hidden gem found on holiday, or a book discovered in a dusty antique shop. With your curious mind and active imagination, it seems a magical time. Are you noticing things about a partner that you didn't before? Could it be time to bring yourself up to date on what they are thinking and feeling?

Fancy doing something creative? Don't want to do it alone? Start looking for options. If classes seem costly, why not start a group yourself? The New Moon gives a new start but it will take extra effort to get things moving. Others may appear to be unhelpful but they have their own worries at the moment. All the more reason to get them out and thinking of something completely different?

Want to start something new and exciting? With your confidence up and down as this month begins, you could be feeling sluggish. Where to start? Look for someone who is full of energy and optimism. Their company could be just what you need for a hefty kick-start! Don't rely on others to volunteer to help out with tasks, especially at home. You will need to tell them exactly what you expect.





24 July - 23 Aug

24 Aug - 23 Sep

24 Sept - 23 Oct

24 Oct - 22 Nov

In an energetic and imaginative frame of mind? Being frustrated by those who just fail to pull their weight? Avoid foot-stamping, but do put both feet firmly down! Let those around you know exactly what is expected of them and keep on their tail. Have you decided to put a romantic attachment on hold? Well, to avoid conflict, do let them know what is going on in your mind.

This week is all about building your confidence and knowledge. The New Moon is shining a light on ambitions and dreams. These are mixed together in your mind. Often you will wake with a bright idea buzzing to get out. Write down the possibilities before you forget them. Find out how practical those ideas are. Do you need someone to share and help to build those ideas up?

You really do need to start a new chapter in your life right about now! It could be internal changes at home or asking for changes at work. Whatever it is has been a bugbear for some time. Will you ever get it sorted? Yes, you will! It takes courage to admit what it is that needs changing. It brings you out of your lovely, huggy comfort zone. Be brave and see that reward at the end of the rainbow!

With so much enthusiasm coming from you, it is hard to believe that everyone else refuses to be swept along. Much as you don't want to waste time doing it, try to explain your motives and plans. You need the help of others to move ahead, even if it's just to make sure they're not in the way! With a New Moon and a Solar Eclipse, you are no longer able to slow down your ambitions.





23 Nov - 21 Dec

Such an emotional week as this is sure to leave you feeling a bit confused at times. Take some quiet moments out and just have that cup of tea or read that silly magazine! Whatever switches your intellect off for a while will certainly help. I often advise talking it over but this time just getting on with things works better than sitting around. Avoid spending money or comfort eating.

22 Dec - 20 Jan

Emotional blockage is a bad thing. We all hold on to thoughts and feelings that could upset others. This does not help and, as you are finding now, those emotions will come tumbling out. For some of you, they may even explode out! See it as a good thing and try not to hold back any longer. It is clear-out time, baby! You will feel a great sense of relief afterwards. Why did you not do it sooner?

21 Jan - 19 Feb

Those unexpected and unsettling 'gut reactions' pop up all over the place this week. Some reactions can come as a shock to those who think they know you (but how many people really do?). Still, as they say, better out than in! Someone is long overdue to be told that they are not pulling their weight, especially recently. This causes amusement to a loved one who saw it coming!

20 Feb - 20 Mar

It may be practical to back off when someone asks just too much of you. Why run yourself ragged when there are others who could step up and help? On the work front, you have mixed feelings about a change in routine or method. Let your ideas be known to the right person rather than give an opinion via gossip. Realise that your input is important. Your partner can vouch for that!

Bright ideas: how to wear the summer tailoring trend By Katie Wright, P A A bold two-piece suit is a must-have this season, says Katie Wright. Remember when the only people who wore suits to work were corporate career hustlers? Now though, the grey check blazer has become a style staple for women everybody's got at least one in their wardrobe - and suit jackets aren't just for office workers any more. The tailoring boom continues for spring/summer, but this time it comes with an explosion of colour too. On the SS19

catwalks, bright trouser suits in sunset shades were everywhere, from scarlet red at Balenciaga and tangerine at Roksanda, to salmon pink at Peter Pilotto and chartreuse at Emporio Armani. Saturated hues are what these two-piece ensembles all had in common, but suit cuts varied, with both single and double-breasted jackets teamed with slouchy and slim-cut trousers. There's lots of variety on the high street too, from boxy blazers to cute cropped jackets, so you can find your new summer staple with ease. The sunny tailoring trend lends itself well to office life, of course - a hot pink suit is the definition of power dressing in 2019.

But, like winter's ubiquitous check blazer, a mustard or tangerine jacket can also come in very handy as a holiday cover-up. Equally, you can dress down a two-piece as well, by adding a vintage T-shirt and white Adidas Gazelles. It's not just about daywear, either - take the tailoring trend into party mode by teaming a one-button suit jacket with a lacy camisole, crop top, or (if you dare) nothing underneath at all.

What exactly is air pollution and how is it damaging our health?

By Liz Connor, P.A. It's one of the biggest health threats of our time and many areas are exceeding air pollution limits. Liz Connor finds out more. You can't see toxic air, but it's all around us everywhere From smog hanging over cities to streets filled with car emissions, air pollution is

one of the biggest environmental threats to our health, and it comes from lots of different man-made sources. The World Health Organisation (WHO) estimates that over 70% of towns and cities have unsafe levels of air pollution, while around 4.2 million premature deaths globally are linked to outdoor air pollution, which is associated with serious health issues like heart disease, stroke and lung cancer. But what exactly is air pollution, and do we really need to worry? Here, experts explain... What exactly is air pollution? In simple terms, an air pollutant is any substance in the air that could cause harm. Tiny pollutants that are too small for the naked eye to see can evade our body's defences when we breathe them in, damaging our lungs, heart and brain. Air pollution can disperse widely, so it's a myth that you can avoid it in the countryside, as you don't necessarily have to be at the centre of the source to be affected by it. It can affect anyone of any economic background Pollution can come from natural sources such as pollen and soil, but it's often caused by emissions from vehicles (such as from petrol or diesel engines), dust from the road, construction work or burning fossil fuels Not only is air pollution harmful to health, it's also bad for the environment. It has close links to climate change, as burning fossil fuels such as coal and oil re-

leases a variety of chemicals into the atmosphere, including greenhouse gas carbon dioxide.

cancer, neurodegenerative diseases or diabetes.

Why is it bad for health?

How can you protect your health from air pollution?

On days when the air pollution is particularly bad, breathing it in can irritate the eyes, nose and throat, cause shortness of breath, make asthma symptoms worse and possibly affect the heart and cardiovascular system. Being exposed to polluted air for longer periods can cause more serious health problems too. "There is strong scientific and medical evidence that short and long-term exposure to air pollution can negatively impact on human health by increasing the risk of morbidity and mortality Air pollution is now believed to be the leading environmental cause of early death in the UK. "Studies have found that people that breathe contaminated air can develop different conditions including cardiovascular and respiratory conditions, and enhance the likelihood of developing chronic diseases such as

Knowledge is key. It's important to regularly monitor the air pollution level around where you live and work, especially if you have asthma or a circulatory condition. On high pollution days, it's a good idea to avoid spending long periods of time outdoors - especially areas such as busy roads with heavy traffic. "When pollution is high, people with lung conditions such as asthma should avoid exercising outdoors, particularly in the evening when the pollution has had a chance to build up. "Keep windows and doors closed, and keep your car windows shut, especially if you're stuck in traffic. If you have asthma, carry an inhaler at all times and take an antihistamine if pollen levels are high. "If you find you're using your reliever (blue) inhaler more than three times a week, you should speak to

your GP or asthma nurse about whether you need to start a preventer inhaler, or increase the strength if you're already using one." Pollution can make you more likely to react to your usual asthma trigger, such as house dust mites and pollen, so it's wise to invest in special hypoallergenic fabrics around the home. Air pollution is something that the government will aim to tackle over the next few decades, with a lot of places pledging to become a carbon neutral country by 2050. On an individual level meanwhile, there are measures we can all take to help reduce our own carbon footprint and challenge the air pollution problem at the same time. Opt for energy-efficient light bulbs, use electricity from environmentallyfriendly sources where possible and keep your vehicles properly tuned. Better yet, make use of public transport or try cycling or walking to work - it's better for your physical health and much more pleasant than getting stuck in that Monday morning traffic jam.

Male menopause When they reach their late 40s to early 50s, some men develop depression, loss of sex drive, erectile dysfunction, and other physical and emotional symptoms. Other symptoms common in men this age are: Mood swings and irritability Loss of muscle mass and reduced ability to exercise Fat redistribution, such as developing a large belly or "man boobs" A general lack of enthusiasm or energy Difficulty sleeping, or increased tiredness Poor concentration and short-term memory These symptoms can interfere with everyday life and happiness, so it's important to find the underlying cause and work out what can be done to resolve it. Is there such a thing as a 'male menopause'? The "male menopause" is a term sometimes used in the media but this label is misleading because it suggests the symptoms are the result of a sudden drop in testosterone in middle age, similar to what occurs in the female menopause. This is not true. Although testosterone levels fall as men age, the decline is steady at less than 2% a year from around the age of 30 to 40, and this is unlikely to cause any problems on its own.

A testosterone deficiency that develops later in life, also known as late-onset hypogonadism, can sometimes be responsible for these symptoms, but in many cases the symptoms are nothing to do with hormones. Personal or lifestyle issues Lifestyle factors or psychological problems are often responsible for many of these symptoms. For example, erectile dysfunction, loss of libido and mood swings may be the result of, stress, depression or anxiety. There are also physical causes of erectile dysfunction, such as changes in the blood vessels, which may happen alongside any psychological cause. Psychological problems are typically brought on by work or relationship issues, divorce, money problems or worrying about ageing parents. A "midlife crisis" can also be responsible. This can happen when men think they have reached life's halfway stage. Anxieties over what they have accomplished so far, either in their job or personal life, can lead to a period of depression. Other possible causes of the "male menopause" include: Lack of sleep Poor diet Lack of exercise Drinking too much alcohol

Smoking Low self-esteem Late-onset hypogonadism

In some cases, where lifestyle or psychological problems do not seem to be responsible, the symptoms of the "male menopause" may

be the result of hypogonadism, where the testes produce few or no hormones. Hypogonadism is sometimes present from birth, which can cause symptoms like delayed puberty and small testes. Hypogonadism can also occasionally develop later in life, particularly in men who are obese or have type 2 diabetes. This is known as lateonset hypogonadism and can cause the "male menopause" symptoms. But this is an uncommon and specific medical condition that's not a normal part of ageing.

What to do If you're experiencing any of these symptoms, see your Dr. They'll ask about your work and personal life to see if your symptoms may be caused by a mental health issue, such as stress or anxiety. If stress or anxiety, are affecting you, you may benefit from medication or a talking therapy, such as cognitive behavioural therapy. Exercise and relaxation can also help. Do I need hormone replacement therapy? Your Dr may also order a blood test to measure your testosterone levels. If the results suggest you have a testosterone deficiency, you may be referred to an endocrinologist, a specialist in hormone problems. If the specialist confirms this diagnosis, you may be offered testosterone replacement to correct the hormone deficiency, which should relieve your symptoms.

On the box Glastonbury 2019 (BBC2, 7.30pm) Saturday, 29/6/2019 Lauren Laverne and Clara Amfo present the Pyramid Stage debut of song-and-dance superstar Janet Jackson, who will be performing hits from her back catalogue including What Have You Done for Me Lately?, Rhythm Nation and Got Til It's Gone. There will also be highlights of the sets by Norway's young breakout star Sigrid and Detroit pop-rapper Lizzo with songs from her breakout third album Cuz I Love You. Plus, an acoustic performance from rising star Freya Ridings. The coverage continues at 9 with the full headline set from the Killers and highlights of Liam Gallagher.

Top Gear (BBC2, 8.00pm) Sunday, 30/6/2019 Paddy McGuinness, Freddie Flintoff and Chris Harris are back. Two of them have only been fronting the show a couple of weeks, but they've already made quite an impression. A scene in which Freddie played the fool in his pants, while Mr Harris regarded him and Paddy with contempt was comedy gold. Top Gear has always been about banter first and cars second, and it looks like the showrunners have got the balance right on the presenting front. This week the trio get to grips with a disused hearse, and give it a new lease of life as the ultimate family car (presumably not just the Addams Family). The Dallara Stradale is also put through its paces by Chris, and royal duo Zara and Mike Tindall are the Stars in a Reasonably Fast Car, but which is fastest? There's only one way to find out.

Today at Wimbledon (BBC2, 8.30pm) Monday, 1/7/2019 If you missed the start of Wimbledon, Clare Balding presents highlights of the opening day's play at the All England Club, where the first round got under way in the men's and ladies' singles. Much of the attention will have been on the opening match on Centre Court, which saw Novak Djokovic begin the defence of his title, in pursuit of a fifth triumph here. The bottom half of the women's draw also started, as the players looked to emulate 2018 champion Angelique Kerber.
