Welcome to the Christmas edition of ‘The Viewer’ I think I must’ve blinked for a moment, where has this year gone? Wouldn’t it be lovely if life had a ‘pause’ button that we could press every now and again just so that we can all catch up with ourselves…. and in my case, make the most of the beautiful sunny days! I wonder how many of you have already done your Chri stmas shopping, and wrapped it all? I’m usually a last minute person when it comes to gift buying, but I must confess that this year I’ve been a little more organised and dare I say it; I actually bought my first Christmas present in October! I stumbled across the unusual gift whilst shopping in a local independent retailer. You might just find some inspiration for that unusual gift you’re looking for within these pages. It’s still a tough economic climate, and it’s so important to spend your money wisely and locally, to help us all through challenging times. Before I sign off, I’d like to thank everyone for their support over the past year and wish you all a very peaceful, happy Christmas and I hope that 2014 brings everything that you’re hoping for. Until next time!

Nene Park Academy receives prestigious Quality Mark for PE and Sport

N

ene Park Academy has become the first school in Peterborough, and only the second school in Cambridgeshire, to achieve a distinction in the Quality Mark for Physical Education and Sport Award. The mark is awarded by the Association for Physical Education (AfPE). The prestigious accreditation demonstrates the Academy’s excellence in the delivery and support of Physical Education and Sports. The award was best owed upon the academy after a rigorous accreditation process which saw the Academy’s provision assessed in a number of key areas.

Kevin Ainslie, Assistant Principal and Director of Sport at Nene Park Academy, was delighted to receive the award and commented: “To achieve a distinction in the award was important to us as it symbolises the effort and hard work that the whole PE Department has put into developing the opportunities and provisions that are available to our students in the PE and Sports department."

alongside a number of other accreditations that the Academy has achieved such as, the Arts Mark Gold Award and Specialist Leaders of Education.

Steve Howard, Principal of Nene Park Academy, added: “We are extremely proud of our PE department and sports culture as a whole. This award shows how ambitious we are here at Nene Park Academy to constantly strive for excellence in all that we do, including PE and sports, and it further exemplifies our ties with Peterborough United Football Club.” The Academy recently moved into a new £15 million new building which features purpose built science laboratories and fully equipped IT and digital media studios, all of which enhance the teaching and learning provision at the school. There is also a brand new third generation football pitch and a fully-equipped, state-of-the-art gym which are all used by the POSH Academy, students and the community as a whole.

The Academy is now working with seven primary schools in the city to support them in the delivery of their physical education and sports activities. This latest award sits

Local artist volunteers his time to help new pre-school Local artist has kindly painted a mural as a gift to the children at Family Action’s latest pre-school, Stanground Sunbeams. Hesham Mohamed has supported Family Action’s work since his arrival in Peterborough from Egypt three years ago. Family Action’s Early Years Manager, Karen Hornsby, commented:

“We are all very grateful to Hesham for giving up so much of his time to help brighten up our new pre-school. The mural depicts well known characters from traditional story books and the children really enjoy spotting all their favourite characters.” Stanground Sunbeams opened on 9th September and is situated in Stanground St John’s Primary School. It currently has spaces for children aged 2, 3 and 4 and can support applications to the Local Authority for funding which is now more widely available for eligible two year olds.

To arrange a visit to the setting or to register a child, parents should contact the pre-school supervisor, Debra Thorpe, on 07950 683 026.

Christmas pressures

W

h e th er y ou ce l eb rat e Christmas or not, if you live in the UK it’s pretty inescapable from November onwards. Everywhere you turn there are mince pies, stocking-filler, chocs and super-rich treats. It’s little wonder that the average person puts on between 5lb and 10lb between November and January. Even good old Santa Claus is a walking, talking advert for an extra piece of Christmas pudding. Christmas can be a tricky time if you aren’t happy with how you look too. There is extra pressure to dress up and look nice and magazines and TV are full of people laughing in sequins and knocking back wine in tiny black dresses. If you’re struggling with your weight, the festive season can be fraught with hurdles and it can seem impossible to navigate the holidays. Who hasn’t fallen prey to the old refrain, “Ah go on, have another one, it’s Christmas. You can start the diet in the new year!” However, there is help at hand. The LighterLife two-step approach ensures you can enjoy the festive season by using LighterLife Fast two days a week so there’s no great weight gain between now and the New Year. With LighterLife Fast you just fast for any two days and eat and drink what you ordinarily would on the other days. On the fast days you simply replace your usual intake with four LighterLife

20

Foodpacks which with only around 600 Calories a day help you balance festive eating. And in a way that’s impossible on conventional food in just those 600 calories you are getting 100% nutrition. Step two involves planning and booking your place in a New Year LighterLife weight loss group. There is a plan for everyone. The Total plan is the quickest way to a lighter New Year and a lighter new you. It is designed for those with three or more stone to lose. If you have less weight to lose then LighterLife Lite is for you. So as you negotiate your way through the festive season and know that you have a strategy for preventing further weight gain and that 2014 will be the year you become the person you want to be. Christmas for Angela Capon, a foster carer from Daventry, was always about food. She weighed 18st11lb when she joined LighterLife in 2012 and went on to lose 7st 6lbs in 8 months. “Before LighterLife Christmas was all about food, from big breakfasts, massive dinners, puddings so you can’t move and then alcohol and fizzy drinks”. This all changed after she lost weight. “Last year I enjoyed my turkey and all the trimmings,” she says, Capon adds, “Now, for me, Christmas is about the day, the children and the company.”

Sole Serenity is a Reflexology Clinic based in a peaceful location in Orton Wistow. When I first heard about Sole Serenity, I wondered how reflexology really worked. So, I thought I would pay Sole Serenity a visit and have some reflexology treatment, treating myself to the luxury of ‘me-time’. When I arrived at Sole Serenity, I was greeted at the door by Fiona Todd. Fiona runs Sole Serenity and is a clinical reflexologist and trained nurse. As we discussed what the treatment would entail, I knew I was in good hands as everything was explained in full and I was put at ease by Fiona’s friendly, calm and professional manner. The consultation included a medical questionnaire to make sure I was suitable for the treatment. I was then asked to sit in the reclining seat and the treatment commenced. I usually find it very difficult to relax in most situations, but as Fiona was working her wonders, I did gradually feel a deep relaxation and could have dropped off to sleep - if I hadn’t fought it so much. Reflexology is thought to stimulate the body to restore its natural balance which becomes disturbed when we are ill. As a complementary therapy, reflexology may be used with great effect alongside standard medical care.

Reflexologists believe that specific areas of the feet or the hands, called reflexes, relate to specific organs in the body. Using different techniques with the thumbs or fingers, reflexologists apply pressure to reflexes on the feet or hands. It is thought that nerve and blood supply to the actual organs is then stimulated. This may assist with, and speed up, the natural healing process. As this is a holistic therapy, reflexologists are concerned with clients’ physical, emotional and spiritual well-being, which all impact on their health. I thoroughly enjoyed my reflexology session. At the end I felt rested both mentally and physcially and can understand how reflexology can help with stress and some physical illnesses.

If you would like to try Reflexology or to learn more about the benefits reflexology can provide, please call Fiona on 0791 471 9728 or visit www.sole-serenity.co.uk 24

Local artist Ruth Robotham’s new exhibition will blow you away!

F

east your eyes on Rain, Snow 2013, a new exhibition comprising works by local artist Ruth Robotham. The pieces will be displayed in Squire’s Coffee House at Peterborough Museum until 2nd February 2014. Robotham’s impressionistic works explore the changeable nature of the Fenland landscape, evoking the stormy bluster of winter days in the Fens. Her works are available for sale, and would make meaningful and seasonally-appropriate gifts this Christmas. Born in the Potteries, Stoke on Trent, Robotham won a scholarship to the Chelsea School of Art, studying under painter and print-maker Ceri Richards. She then obtained a Rome scholarship to

36

study for a year in Italy, working at the British School in Rome. The artist has been inspired by the turbulent Norfolk coast. The vast expanse of yellow beaches and stormy skies give space a special quality. The influence of J. M. W. Turner is very much evident, and Robotham’s unique explosive style breathes life and energy into the landscapes, bringing the tempestuous exterior into the cosy interior of Squire’s.

Squire’s Coffee House is open at normal Museum opening times. For more information, call Peterborough Museum on 01733 864663, email museum@vivacity-peterborough.com or visit www.vivacity-peterborough.com.

Team 'Safe Local Trades' has raised £6,400 for Age UK Peterborough!

D

uring September and October each year, Peterborough based Safe Local Trades organise fund-raising events for their chosen charity Age UK Peterborough. This year there were three types of events - a Firewalk on the 19th September, the Great Eastern Fun Run on 13th October and several charity skydives in between. All events were an overall success and the organiser, Eileen Le Voi, owner of Safe Local Trades, said “we would like to thank each and every volunteer who took part, and to everyone who sponsored them in their events, all of which helped to raise an amazing £6,400 for this very worthy local charity". Eileen went on to say "it is a privilege to raise funds for Age UK Peterborough – funds which help them to continue to deliver vital services to an ever

growing population of older people in Peterborough." David Bache, CEO of Age UK Peterborough, said “we at Age UK Peterborough are truly indebted to Eileen and her team of volunteers who have worked so hard and risked life and limb, to raise such an incredible amount of money. Over the past few years, Safe Local Trades have helped raise over £18,500 - no other local company has ever raised this amount for our charity and we are eternally grateful".

Always walk dogs on the lead when near water during periods of low temperatures. Ice does not always freeze evenly leaving weak spots in what may appear a solid surface. Even once temperatures rise, ice takes longer to defrost on larger expanses of water, while snow can mask the water’s edge. Float a large ball in your pond so if the water freezes you can remove it and ensure your fish get enough oxygen. Dog coats are readily available in a wide variety of sizes, colours, styles and prices. This can make a dog that becomes resistant to being walked in the cold, enthusiastic again. Owners of mice, guinea pigs etc... as well as birds, should consider covering cages with a warm blanket over night to retain heat. Reflective/LED collars and accessories are also readily available and can provide peace of mind when walking dogs off the lead in poorly lit areas or for locating the family cat that does not want to come in at night and is hiding in the garden. Increase ambient temperature in reptile tanks or move away from windows and doors.

Outside guinea pigs should be moved indoors for the winter months and you may want to consider moving outside rabbits into sheds or garages, plus you should always increase the amount of hay in your rabbits bedding area during winter. You can prevent water bottles from freezing by purchasing Specially designed protective covers, however you should still inspect the spout daily for blockages. Gritted paths and roads can cause contact allergies and make animals ill if the grit is consumed, so if you know your pet comes into contact with grit you should ensure you bathe their paws or protect them against contact using paw covers/boots. Keep antifreeze well out of your pets reach as it tastes delicious to them, but is deadly. Owners of chickens should check water is available and not frozen frequently, as well as increase the amount of bedding available. Reduce any drafts in the coop and if your chicken coop is portable move it to a sunny spot to get the day time sun over winter. Like other hutched animals chickens will also benefit from having their coop covered with a blanket or piece of carpet.

How to Dispose of Asbestos

A

sbestos is a natural mineral that is found inside rocks. The rocks are open mined in various countries but not in the United Kingdom. However, after the war we had a major rebuilding program and there was a requirement for an economic building material. Asbestos was seen as the wonder material of the time and over 9 million tons was imported into Britain. Asbestos was added to various building products like cement, plastic and fabric to name a few. This resulted in asbestos being used in over 3000 items. It is believed that with the addition of cement there was, at one time, about 20 million tons of asbestos containing materials in the United Kingdom.

kilograms up to multi tons. We will also only charge for the weight disposed at a price per kilogram. See our advert for more information. Remember that when you have disposed of your asbestos you must be able to prove to the Environment Agency that you have carried out the disposal safely. This is achieved by obtaining a Consignment Note from the place of disposal. This is a legal document that you must retain for seven years and if asked you must produce it.

Should you have any questions regarding the disposal of your asbestos then please contact us we do not charge for advice! Since the 1980’s there has been a lot of asbestos removal and estimates now put the remaining levels at about 5 million tons. The question for the average person in the street is “how can I dispose of my asbestos?� The commercial sites can charge up to 2 tons for small amounts and some will not even entertain domestic clients on their site. Councils, whilst allowing disposal will only let you bring in certain amounts during the year. At Cromwell Associates we have devised a new system whereby a domestic or commercial client can visit our site and dispose of any quantity from as little as 5

For December 2013 - By Astrologer Christine Chalklin SAGITTARIUS NOV. 23 - DEC. 21 The powerful new moon in your sign on the 3rd puts the focus on transformational new beginnings. Pivotal Mars in Libra after the 8th ensures that artistic talent and creativity can come to the forefront. Renewed energy and confidence help you to be assertive and direct about getting what you desire.

CAPRICORN DEC. 22 - JAN. 20 Assertive Mars moves into harmonious Libra on the 8th and spotlights the career sector of your chart. You can charm your way to the top and your intuitive powers will be working very well for you. You should also have more energy to pursue a new relationship, or put some energy back into an existing one.

AQUARIUS JAN. 21 - FEB. 18 Travel and faraway places are your main focus after the 8th, as motivational Mars moves into Libra. Any difficult or complicated dealings with others should improve after the Sagittarius new moon on the 3rd. Venus in serious Capricorn indicates that professional matters are also in strong focus.

PISCES FEB. 19 – MARCH 20 Changes in your professional life are in the spotlight during December. The pivotal Sagittarian new moon in your career sector on the 3rd has you feeling rather restless and totally open to new and positive experiences. You’ll feel motivated to open your mind to new and far reaching ideas.

ARIES MARCH 21 - APRIL 20 Energetic Mars, your ruling planet, changes signs on the 8th bringing all relationships and partnerships into focus and adjustments will need to be made. The new moon in Sagittarius on the 3rd highlights a deep need for laying down concrete plans for change and transformation in the New Year.

TAURUS APRIL 21 - MAY 21 Abundant Jupiter in sensitive Cancer brings new and exciting ideas for Taureans this month. New projects that involve other people could well get the go-ahead now. Renewed creativity will be available as motivational Mars moves into artistic Libra on the 8th. The new moon on the 3rd could bring a financial surprise!

56

GEMINI MAY 22 - JUNE 21 Relationships are high on the agenda this month. With Venus, the love planet, in serious-minded Capricorn you may want a few answers from certain close partnerships. The new moon in Sagittarius on the 3rd suggests significant change and new beginnings, particularly in the love sector of your chart.

CANCER JUNE 22 - JULY 22 December’s Sagittarian new moon on the 3rd is very significant and brings lots of inspirational and dynamic energy for you to work with. Work and career matters will be highlighted and it’s very important that you set the pace for whatever needs changing in these areas of your life.

LEO JULY 23 - AUGUST 23 Energetic Mars moves into balanced Libra on the 8th, highlighting the communication area of your chart. Any ideas for new and exciting changes in these areas could now get the go-ahead. The Sagittarian new moon on the 3rd is very important for you, it sets a new agenda and it’s a very strong time for creativity.

VIRGO AUG. 24 - SEPT. 22 Hard working and practical, you can still use the powerful energy of Mars in your sign until the 8th. The move into Libra brings a creative streak and imaginative ideas should be flowing well. Things that aren’t working can benefit from reorganisation.

LIBRA SEPT. 23 - OCT. 23 Your ruling planet Venus, is in seriousminded Capricorn and highlights the domestic sector of your chart. Changes to your living arrangements could be on the agenda.
