Hello, and welcome to the April edition of ‘The Hampton Viewer’ The flowers are finally coming to bloom, the days are getting longer and the temperature is beginning to thaw. So with a new found spring in our step, we’ve got plenty to get you set for the exciting season ahead and the Easter weekend just round the corner. But this doesn’t have to be all about chocolates, there’s plenty of other things to do. See pages 36 and 37 for some fun ideas of activities and outings to share with your family. Also, the “Villages of Rockingham Forest Bike Ride” is back this year in aid of The British Heart Foundation. So if you do want to raise money for charity and want to enjoy a 25 or 50 mile bike ride at the same time, please see page 12 for the details. Sticking to good causes, Sue Ryder is encouraging people to organise a fundraising event perhaps with a 1950s theme or involving the number 60 to celebrate 60 years of care around the world. See details on page 6. Also, make sure you’re not caught out on April Fools Day! The BBC have played some memorable pranks over the years, one has to be the 1957 Panorama report on the bumper spaghetti crop (well before my time - but have been told!). Huge numbers of viewers were fooled by the footage of Swiss pheasants gathering long strands of pasta from the trees! And more recently in 2002, Tesco published an advert publicising the genetically modified vegetable. The advert said it had air holes in the side and that it whistled when it was fully cooked! So Watch Out!!!

Wishing you all a wonderful April!

Sixty great reasons for Tea Sue Ryder Thorpe Hall Hospice


housands of people in Peterborough and its surrounding counties have benefited from the lifetime’s work of an inspirational woman. And this year, the charity that she set up will call on the local community to help celebrate sixty years of care around the world. Sue Ryder set up her charity in 1953 after witnessing the atrocities of the Second World War as a member of the Special Operations Executive & locally, Thorpe Hall Hospice in Longthorpe, Peterborough was opened in 1991. For its diamond celebrations, Sue Ryder is encouraging people to organise a fundraising event perhaps with a 1950s theme or involving the number 60. The charity is planning vintage tea parties and hopes that supporters will organise their own. Sue Ryder fundraiser at Thorpe Hall Jackie Page said: “We've put together a party kit, complete with bunting and invitations. There's also our tea party guide and recipes, so if that sounds like fun, you can start planning your party now. “Whether at work, home or in the community, we are asking people to help us celebrate our 60 years of incredible care with friends and family by having fun and raising money for a great cause. Could you raise £600 in 60 days or sell 60 cupcakes in 60 minutes? The possibilities are endless.” Sue Ryder started her first home at the age of 29 in her mother’s house in Suffolk to help disabled people and refugees, particularly from Poland.


~ Local Information

Jackie Page said: “Sue Ryder, who later became Baroness Ryder of Warsaw, died in 2000 but her legacy is the wonderful work that continues to help people around the world. “Locally, Thorpe Hall hospice has delivered incredible specialist care and emotional support to people with incurable illness serving the community in five counties within a 35 mile radius.” To find out more about Sue Ryder's 60th celebrations or to discuss your own 60th anniversary fundraising ideas, get in touch with Jackie Page at or call 01733 330060.

If you need help organising an event, the Sue Ryder website has lots of tips.

In The Night Sky #25


s I write this we’ve had a disappointing few weeks of sky watching because of the weather. We’ve missed comet PANSTARRS on its approach to the Sun, hopefully we should get a decent view as the month progresses, but just in case log on to NASA and have a look at their images - not quite the same I know, but at least you’ll get to see some images of the comet.

the sunrises and sunsets are refracted onto the Moon and reflected back to us. The occurance of a total lunar eclipse is dependant upon a happy coincidence that the distance from the Earth to the Moon is exactly right, but the Moon is moving away from the Earth at about 4cm a year so in a few billion years total eclipses won’t happen - so take advantage of them whilst you can!

As for April there is an event that we should be able to see unless it’s very, very cloudy there’s a partial Lunar eclipse, albeit a very minor one so you will have to look carefully.

For this one, however, only about 2 percent of the Moon will be within the dark shadow (known as the umbral shadow).

A Lunar eclipse occurs when the Earth’s shadow obscures the Sun’s light. The picture below is of the total lunar eclipse on December 20th, 2010 as viewed from Hampton.

April will also bring spring skies to the Northern hemisphere so although we’ll lose Perseus, Orion and Andromeda from our night viewing we will now be able to enjoy Hercules, Cygnus & Lyra in the evening sky.

The orange glow is produced because some of the Sun’s light is bent towards the moon by the Earth’s atmosphere. Other colours are either absorbed or bent away from the Moon, in effect it’s as though all

Happy Night Watching!

The Whinge The Magic Roundabout


ast month I told you about my lack of Internet connection and the effect

on my digital life. Well this month I am at last connected and re-digitized, much to the relief of my family but to the dismay of all the local coffee shops! So you might be forgiven for thinking that I couldn't possible still be moaning about my ISP. Unfortunately, the saga continues. I had to wait a while after I was finally connected before I could make a final complaint and claim for a refund for the period when I had no service. Mainly because I had so much catching up to do, but also to let some of the caffeine leach from my system. Otherwise I would have been speaking at a rate that no ordinary mortal could understand let alone a service desk operative. Now as it happens I clearly didn't leave it long enough. My first problem was that what I wanted to do - complain - wasn't an option I was presented with by the automatic answering system. I doubted that this was because this was an option very few people wanted so there must be a perfectly logical explanation for this. Maybe there was a specific number, so I checked. But no I had the correct number so I persevered. I later found out that "we don't have any specific complaints department, so we don't provide that as an option". Eventually, I got to speak to a human. The wrong one apparently, so I was transferred. To another wrong person, who transferred me again. This time I, allegedly got through to a person who should be able to help me! However, I found out that I was not entitled to any refund for the service I hadn't received because I didn't have a complaint registered against my account.


I had made a total of four complaints, one of which I escalated two levels of management. But it didn't show on my account. So now I had to phone back to try and make a complaint about the fact that my previous complaints had not been registered and that the "not the complaints" department were unable to refund me for a service they hadn't provided me with but had charged me for. Read that bit again, I promise it will make sense eventually. After I phoned back and was transferred a number of times again I finally got through to someone who did help me. She explained that she just worked in wi-fi support and only really dealt with technical issues, but I think she actually felt sorry for me: either that or she sensed the steam escaping from my head. She said "I don't know what they're on about I can clearly see the complaints on your account". She spoke to someone and all of a sudden I had the refund I wanted. What a drama! Next time I need help with my broadband I think I'll phone the gas board because obviously I'll get a faster response. The Whinger (C) 2013 Stephen Farringdon Http://

Driveway and Patio Cleaning and Sealing


ow that winter is finally over and Spring is rapidly approaching, it is time to look at maintaining your driveway and patio and preparing it for the summer. Blackjack Surface Technology Ltd. offer a cleaning and sealing service for all hard paving types whether it is Block Paving, Patterned Concrete, Tarmac or Natural Stone. Block Paving can be washed to remove algae and weeds and restore its original colour. The jointing sand removed when washing should then be replaced to ensure that the blocks bind together and do not move. An optional sealer can be applied to further enhance the colour of the blocks and solidify the jointing sand making it far less likely that weeds will grow or ants will colonise your paving. Tarmac can be washed to remove moss and dirt and the seal coated to restore its colour


and protect from the effects of harmful UV rays and weathering. This should be done every 2 or 3 years from new to greatly increase the life of your driveway. Patterned concrete should be washed and re-sealed every 2 years. This will bring your paving back to life and restore the original colour, protect from staining and protect from the effects of weather.

As well as offering a complete cleaning and sealing service, Blackjack also sell a range of professional sealers and cleaning products for all paving types on their website at

for those of you that wish to do it yourself.

For April 2013 - By Astrologer Christine Chalklin ARIES MARCH 21 - APRIL 20 Hot, hot, hot - with so many planets in your sign this is a month full of explosive energy. You might not be in agreement with people who have different views, or try to restrict you in any way. Great revelations are possible, best to wait until end of the month to make big decisions, as rash moves don’t always pay off!

TAURUS APRIL 21 - MAY 21 Taurus has lots to think about this month, so many planets in a deeply introspective sector of your chart can only mean one thing – step back and take time out! Reflection is the key word and many things will need addressing. Clarity should return round the 20th, as planetary energy concentrates in your sign.

GEMINI MAY 22 - JUNE 21 Mighty Jupiter in your sign urges you to communicate in an entirely new way. So many planets in fiery Aries mean that new friends and new adventures are definitely on the horizon. The New moon on the 10th brings your attention to an exciting new project or goal, possibly with caring and charitable concerns.

CANCER JUNE 22 - JULY 22 This is the month of achievement for Cancerians – in your private life or in your career, four planets occupy the most pivotal point of your chart and whatever you feel right now, exciting times are coming your way! Define your strategy for the rest of the year, the powerful new moon on the 10th is very auspicious.

LEO JULY 23 - AUGUST 23 Travel, adventure and further education are all in the spotlight for Leos this month. Your ruler, the powerful Sun, illuminates an action packed area of your chart – the sky’s the limit, so go for gold! The new moon on the 10th is particularly powerful, Communicative Mercury gives you more strength after the 14th.

VIRGO AUG. 24 - SEPT. 22 Financial dealings, legacies & resources are all in the spotlight this month. A complete overhaul may well be necessary now. Let your creativity flow and use your imagination for new projects. Try not to take any major risks, particularly financial ones, until the heavens calm down after the 20th.


LIBRA SEPT. 23 - OCT. 23 Relationships are in the spotlight this month. With so many planets in fiery Aries all partnership concerns & issues will be brought to the surface, whether you like it or not! A relationship may end, may change, or an exciting one may begin. Embrace the change & liberation that this extraordinary time brings.

SCORPIO OCT. 24 - NOV. 22 Your work, your career and your ultimate future are highlighted this month. Stern Saturn in Scorpio ensures that you build solid foundations for lasting change. Benevolent Jupiter helps existing plans and goals to expand, as you’ll be in the right place at the right time, for maximum benefit.

SAGITTARIUS NOV 23 - DEC 21 A month of heightened creativity and hot passionate love is on the horizon for Sagittarius! We start the month with the moon in your sign and as this cycle builds to the new moon on the 10th you should be feeling at your all time best. The only down side is that you take on too much – take it easy and enjoy!

CAPRICORN DEC. 22 - JAN. 20 Pluto, master of transformation, is progressing steadily through your sign & your need for change & re-evaluation will also be gathering momentum. So many planets in fiery Aries cause you to question some domestic arrangements. The new moon in Aries on the 10th increases confidence – no more holding back!

AQUARIUS JAN. 21 - FEB. 18 Your ruler, the ever unpredictable Uranus is joined by three other planets in fiery Aries. Expansive Jupiter in Gemini brings optimism and joy into your life, particularly from people around you. Communication, speaking and writing should be a source of great pleasure now and socialising will also be high on the agenda.

PISCES FEB. 19 – MARCH 20 Attention turns to goals, achievement & your self-worth during April. Finances are also highlighted & rearranging some monetary matters may also be on the agenda. On the 10th the new moon energy starts a new cycle of opportunity and growth, coupled with energetic Mars your confidence should be high.
