Where were these Dragons? At Hetton Lyons Country Park, Hetton-le- Hole, on Saturday 5th September 2015. They were not actual dragons of course but Dragon Boats being raced by teams of competitors at an event promoted by six local Rotary Clubs, Cleadon, Seaburn, Seaburn Satellite, Sunderland , Washington and Wearside with Seaham. There were 200 competitors from Rotary Clubs, businesses, charities and a pub who competed in teams with names such as Hoop-la, Battered Allsorts, Charlies Angels, The Bag Ladies and Bridges Firebreathers. The teams took part in thirty races and the three teams with the best times competed in the final. The winning team was a combination of Seaburn Club members and relatives together with some employees of Gentoo. The

three finalists were Battered Allsorts, Black Horse and Pussers Pride, who were presented with their medals by Fiona Swan, Assistant Governor of Rotary North East. This was the first time a Dragon Boat Event has been held in the North East. The Dragon Boat Company, who provided the boats, safety equipment and commentary on the races, the Rotarians who helped to organise the day and the competitors all declared the day a great success. The sponsored charity for the day was the Great North Air Ambulance and proceeds from the event will be donated to that very important organisation. The local Rotary Clubs are already receiving enquiries about the event being staged next year. All that can be said is watch this space! John McLoughlin, Rotary Club of Seaburn

Dyspraxia Awareness Week

11th – 17th October Dyspraxia is also known as Developmental Coordination Disorder, and occurs in both adults and children. It can affects fine and gross motor coordination. Those with the condition are often late learning to walk, stand, sit and roll and will find other standard developmental activities such as running, jumping or catching a ball more difficult. Many also experience difficulties with articulation, speech, perception and thoughts, leading to memory problems, poor organisation, planning and sequencing skills. Dyspraxia is thought to be caused by an immaturity of neurone development in the brain which disrupts the way the brain sends messages to the body. Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe announced he had the disorder in 2008. Other well known personalities affected by the condition include South Shields MP Emma Lewell- Buck, model Cara Delvingne and Jamie Lambert who is part of the Britain’s Got Talent winning male singing group Collabro. Indeed, Jamie has just become a Celebrity Patron for the Charity the Dyspraxia Foundation and is fronting this year’s awareness campaign. His mother Lorraine has shared her thoughts in a blog to help others. She urges people not to assume that those with the condition have limited potential. Around 5% of the population are affected by Dyspraxia and around 2% are severely affected. Evidence shows the condition sometimes runs in families and that boys are three times more likely to be affected than girls. 8

Sometimes Dyspraxia occurs in isolation, but frequently it coexists with conditions such as Asperger’s Syndrome (High Functioning Autism), Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD), Dyslexia, language disorders, and social, emotional and behavioural difficulties. Diagnosis via specific assessments often happens at school age and usually leads to referral to specialist support services. While many of those with Dyspraxia are highly intelligent, their ability to learn is often impaired and they will need to repeat things and practice more often. At a special event in Parliament in 2014, Emma Lewell-Buck said; ‘I used to also suffer from low self-esteem and confidence, and for a time at school I got frustrated with having to work harder than the other kids and started to misbehave. But I realised that if I was going to make something of my life I needed to start knuckling down – even if it did take longer to grasp and understand things I knew that I was just as capable as anyone else.’ The Dyspraxia Foundation provides resources and a helpline to assist young adults affected by Dyspraxia as well as their families, teachers and healthcare professionals. There are also many local support groups. Find out more at: www.dyspraxiafoundation.org.uk Helpline: 01462 454986 By Susan Brookes-Morris

Halloween Pumpkins at the ready… There are big tubs of pumpkins outside the supermarkets, along with costumes, fake blood and multi-packs of sweets in the aisles. Halloween is almost upon us. But why do we celebrate it, when did trick or treating start, and what’s the point of carving pumpkins? As many people know, Halloween is short for All Hallows’ Eve. All Hallows’ Day (also known as All Saints’ Day) was an important occasion in the early Christian calendar and is still recognised by many Christians today. It is a national holiday in some predominately Catholic countries and is seen as a time to recognise and remember saints. It is believed that many Halloween traditions pre-date Christianity, and actually date back to the ancient Gaelic festival Samhain, which was held to mark the transition from harvest time to winter. Samhain was seen to be a time when the boundaries between worlds, particularly those of the living and the dead, were loosened, enabling spirits to cross through into our world. Bonfires were lit to cleanse the air and offer protection. People would often dress up as evil spirits in order to appease the ‘real’ spirits into not harming them, their families or their livestock. The ‘evil witch’ may have its roots in the Pagan goddess, The Crone, who was celebrated at Samhain for her wisdom and nurture of the Earth. In the Middle Ages, poor people would visit homes, offering to pray for the dead on All Soul’s Day (November 2nd), in exchange for food. This is likely where trick or treating

10

started. Trick or treating may also be related to ‘guising’, a tradition where children would dress up and perform a song, dance, or other entertainment in exchange for a sweet treat. Pumpkin carving is believed to date back to the 1800s. Originally, turnips were carved and a candle placed inside. It appears that these lanterns served numerous purposes: to frighten spirits away; to guide travellers home safely; and simply to light the way in a time before street lights were commonplace. Pumpkins started to replace turnips when Irish immigrants took their Halloween traditions with them to America. Pumpkins were easier to acquire there than turnips, and soon became more popular as they are usually larger and much easier to carve! In recent years, pumpkin carving has become something of an art form, with elaborate designs often replacing simple grotesque faces. Black cats, spiders and bats are common Halloween symbols, and likely relate to the idea of a witch’s ‘familiar’ – an animal that was said to be a demon in disguise. Halloween is now celebrated in numerous countries across the globe, although it is particularly popular in the United States. Samhain itself is also still celebrated by pagans and wiccans around the world. By Kate Duggan

Garden View Terrific Tulips

~ Pot Luck ~

If I could grow only one type of flower then it would have to be the tulip. Harbingers of warmer days, the choice available is mind-blowing. There are frilly parrot tulips bearing fringed petals, sturdy fat-flowered types and graceful plants with lily-like blooms.

Tulips are wonderful in containers. As a guide, a 25-30cm / 10-12 inch diameter pot will accommodate a dozen bulbs. For a larger 47.5cm / 19inch pot use 16 –18 bulbs. Cover the base with at least 5cm / 2inches of drainage material and 12cm / 5 inches of soil-less multi-purpose compost. Lay the bulbs in an inner and outer circle making sure that no bulb touches either another, or the outside of the pot.

They are also tremendously accommodating. You can plant them much later than daffodils and narcissi because they don’t need to start producing roots so early. In fact you can plant them from now until Christmas! My mother uses them as annuals and rips them up after flowering but I can’t bear to do that so I plant them deeply and leave them in the garden where they return happily year on year. If you want to use them as disposable bedding you only need to plant them about 10cm / 4 inches deep. If, like me, you treat them as old friends then plant them 23cm / 9 inches deep and they won’t disappoint you. By Rachel Leverton

Fill the pot with compost to within 2.5cm / 1 inch of the rim. I finish pots off with strips of daisies or anemones planted around the edge in colours which complement the tulips. Water everything in but shelter the pot from heavy rain so it doesn’t become waterlogged and never water in frosty weather. I use water-retaining granules mixed in with the compost. These help to maintain soil moisture throughout the dormant season. Feed the daisies or anemones throughout their flowering season in the Autumn and the Spring and you should be rewarded with a beautiful display sometime in April or May. I love to plant containers of tulips by my front door. I have a red door so choose something like Tulipa ‘Apeldoorn’ in yellow and red varieties underplanted with red daisies. If you have a blue or green door you might like to try Tulipa ‘Angelique’ (pale pink) underplanted with pink anemones. Or how about Tulipa ‘Bleu Aimable’ a brilliant purple/blue variety?

Pumpkin Soup Serves 6 Preparation time: 20 minutes Cooking time: 25 minutes (If roasting pumpkin add 20-30 minutes) Ingredients

Soup

4 tbsp olive oil 2 onions, finely chopped 1kg / 2lb 3oz pumpkins or squash, peeled, deseeded and chopped into chunks ½ -1 tsp ground cumin 700ml / 24 fl oz vegetable stock or chicken stock 142ml / 5fl oz pot double cream Salt and pepper

Garnish

75g / 3oz lardons Chopped chilli (optional) Tiny sage leaves (optional)

Method Heat 2 tbsp olive oil in a large saucepan, then gently fry the finely chopped onions for 5 mins, until soft but not coloured. Add the peeled, deseeded and chopped pumpkin or squash to the pan with the ground cumin, then carry on cooking for 8-10 mins, stirring occasionally until it starts to soften and turn golden. Pour the vegetable stock into the pan, then season with salt and pepper. Bring to the boil, then simmer for 10 mins until the squash is very soft. Pour the pot of double cream into the pan, bring back to the boil, then purée with a hand blender. For an extra-velvety consistency you can now push the soup through a fine sieve into another pan. While the soup is cooking heat the remaining 2 tbsp olive oil in a frying pan, then fry the lardons until deep golden brown. Add some chopped chilli and a few small sage leaves to taste, then cook for a few mins more until they too are tinged with colour. Reheat the soup if needed, season to taste, then serve scattered with the lardon garnish. Note: Although this recipe will work with Halloween pumpkins they tend to be bred for size rather than flavour. If you want to use a Halloween pumpkin I’d recommend drizzling the pumpkin pieces with olive oil first, mixing them with the cumin and roasting them in the oven on Gas 6 / 200C for 20-30 minutes. Then follow the recipe as before. Roasting brings out the maximum flavour.
