Welcome to the March edition of ‘The Hampton Viewer’ I’m pleased to say Spring is in the air and the cold winter days are hopefully now behind us. I would like to remind you that the clocks go forward 1 hour on 31st March which happens to be Easter Sunday. I wish you all a restful and peaceful Easter weekend. However, if you are looking for something to do, please see our ‘Local Events’ pages 36 and 37. This month we will be celebrating Mothering Sunday. A day when we give presents, flowers and cards to our mothers to say ‘Thank you’ for their love and care. A lot of busy mums put everything and everyone before themselves, so perhaps a voucher for a relaxing facial, manicure or massage would be really appreciated (well, it would be in this house!!!). Of course flowers are always welcome too! Please look through the magazine for some of these and other great gift ideas! Finally, I hope you all enjoy the interesting articles and promotional features this month. As always we welcome any feedback you may have and don’t forget to send details of events happening in your area that may be of interest to your neighbours. Have a great month!

Actions required in Spring: Apply Moss Control Treatment Mow Lawn At Least Once Per Week Apply Spring Fertiliser To Produce Vibrant Green Lawn ♦ Spray Weeds In Lawn With Selective Herbicide ♦ ♦ ♦

LAWN CARE FOR MARCH 2013 See Special Offer below

- http://twitter.com/ ProLawnCareUK - http://www.facebook.com/ ProLawnCareUK

Moss Moss has been a real threat to lawns this year, and may be affecting your lawn. Apply a specific moss treatment now, or get ProLawnCare to spray with their special Moss Control Treatment. Moss dies in front of your eyes, and it is best to do it now before the Spring starts, otherwise it will crowd out the grass and lead to a thin and sparse lawn.

Mowing Mow at last once a week now; make sure mower has been serviced and blade replaced or sharpened.

Fertiliser This is the time to feed and weed (preferably in that order). The fertiliser is predominately Nitrogen in a slow release form, but it may also need Phosphate and Potassium as well as vital trace elements to promote a vibrant lawn.

Weed Control Once the weeds and grass are actively growing a selective herbicide to kill broad leaved weeds such as dandelions, daisies and clover within the grass can be applied. 10

Ask the Lawn Ranger for advice (we promise he will reply within 24 hours)

www.prolawncare.co.uk/ ask-the-lawn-ranger Reader Offer: “Book up for a Weed Control Treatment and we’ll apply the Spring Fertiliser

FREE OF CHARGE” (existing Customers will receive an additional treatment free of charge too)

East Anglia’s Children’s Hospice celebrate the Year of the Snake with the launch of the 15th Peterborough Dragon Boat Festival!

T

o celebrate Chinese New Year and the Year of the Snake, East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices has joined with Gable Events to launch the 15th Peterborough Dragon Boat Festival. The 2013 Festival takes place on Saturday 15th June on the River Nene at the Embankment, Peterborough and is one of the largest and most eagerly anticipated team events in the region. Over 30 crews representing companies, organisations, clubs & groups of friends from all over Peterborough and the surrounding area are expected to battle it out over the 200m race course. They will all be seeking to become champions whilst also aiming to add to the event’s impressive fund-raising total of more than £200,000 for charity over the years. Owing to its successful introduction last year, teams will again be racing the smaller 11 person dragon boats and multiple crew discounts are available for those companies wishing to enter more than one team. The Festival will also be taking place on a Saturday for the second year. Dragon boat racing has an ancient Chinese history and the Festival is a re-enactment of a tragic event that took place more than 2,000 years ago in the kingdom of Chu. Legend has it that falsely accused of treason and exiled by jealous rivals in the government, despairing warrior poet, Qu Yuan, threw himself into the Mi Lo River. Local fishermen rowed out to save the drowning poet and tried to rescue him from vicious fish by beating the water with their paddles. But their attempts failed and every year in Hong Kong a Tuen Ng (Dragon Boat) Festival is held as a mark of respect for the fishermen’s frantic efforts and to commemorate the tragic death of Qu Yuan. The dragon boat’s fierce looking dragon’s heads were added later to ward off evil spirits and in Hong Kong special dumplings are eaten to represent the dumplings that were thrown in to the river to stop the fish eating the mighty Qu’s body.

14

The 2013 Chinese calendar, is the Year of the Snake. As snakes are known for their pride, cunning and intelligence, this should result in some interesting races! No previous experience is required to take part in the dragon boat racing, just plenty of team spirit. Thankfully, you don’t need the physical strength of Steve Redgrave or the athleticism of Jessica Ennis to be successful as teamwork and timing win the day. The dragon boats, qualified helms and all racing equipment are provided and each crew is guaranteed a minimum of three races. The Festival offers a full day of fun on land as well as water with plenty of activities on the bankside to entertain teams and spectators between races. The event is supported by Peterborough City Council, the Peterborough Telegraph and Heart 102.7. EACH is the children’s hospice service for families in Peterborough and the surrounding area. They provide care and support wherever the family wishes – in families’ own homes, in hospital or at one of their hospices in Milton, Ipswich & Quidenham. Debbie Fairhurst, Corporate Fundraiser at EACH, comments: “The money raised through the generosity of the teams taking part in the Dragon Boat Festival is very important to us and will go towards the one-to-one nursing care and support that is so vital to life-threatened local children and their families”. The top fundraisers for EACH will win the charity trophy plus a prize meal at Nando’s, Peterborough. For further information and an entry form visit www.dragonboatfestivals.co.uk/peterborough or call Gable Events on 01780 470 718.

The Whinge The Magic Roundabout

L

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

18

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.

In The Night Sky #24

L

ast month I introduced two major comets that we should see this year. In March we will see the first of these - PANSTARRS. On March 5 this comet will be at its closest to Earth at a mere 165 million km. to put this in context the sun is on average 150 million km from Earth. However, this will not be the best time to see the comet. That will come later in the month. That said at only 165 m km away you should be able to see PANSTARRS. A few days later on March 10 the comet will make its closest approach to the Sun at just 45 million km, this is known as its perihelion. After this you should get the best views of the comet in the evening sky. On March 12 the comet is projected to be seen in the early evening along with a crescent Moon just a mere 4 degrees away which should be worth seeing.

PANSTARRS (Panoramic Survey Telescope and Rapid Response Systems) is a Prototype telescope system that is planned to be constructed on the extinct volcano Haleakala in Hawaii - the comet was named after this system rather than any individual because a whole team of observers, computer scientists & astronomers were involved in the discovery at the University of Hawaii in Manoa. On the 12th shortly after sunset and as the sky darkens look south-west towards the Moon and slightly below towards the horizon you should be able to see PANSTARRS subject to cloud cover of course. No pictures this month because there aren’t many that exist yet, but hopefully I shall be able to share some with you next month. Happy Night Watching!

The Nightwatchman (c) 2013 Stephen Farringdon http://stephenfarringdon.com

For most of March you should be able to see PANSTARRS unaided but as we move into April you will need a small telescope.

Areas of the store are dedicated to display furnishings in room settings with different colour schemes and furniture so you can develop an idea to suit your taste. Paul Shaw, owner of the company said “You wouldn’t pick a shirt displayed in a packet and buy it straight away.

Unlike big department stores, Ray and Paul use their own professional carpet fitters and in-house machinists, guaranteeing you an all round quality service.

For March 2013 - By Astrologer Christine Chalklin PISCES FEB. 19 – MARCH 20

VIRGO AUG. 24 - SEPT. 22

Happy birthday Pisces! Five planets are in your sign and may well mean that this is your best month ever. Prepare your creative insights and focus on your goals and ambitions. Mars leaves your sign on the 12th, but produces boundless energy in fiery Aries. The powerful new moon in your sign on the 11th brings clarity and focus to many areas of your life.

March brings your undivided attention to your personal relationships. With your ruler Mercury & four other planets in Pisces, you’ll examine your feelings and beliefs. It’s important to consider what may no longer be working for you, take a deep breath and have the courage to change things.

ARIES MARCH 21 - APRIL 20 March is a very introspective month for usually extrovert and passionate Aries. Always ready to get up and go, this month you will have to step back, take stock and reflect. You will feel the energy shift as Mars, your ruling planet, moves into your sign on the 12th, bringing an abundance of creative energy.

TAURUS APRIL 21 - MAY 21 March brings a new kind of energy for Taurus. Soft and gentle Venus, your ruling planet, is in dreamy Pisces until the 22nd. Well placed for love & compassion, particularly within your social circle, meaningful friendships are on the horizon. The full moon in Libra on the 27th brings a new opportunity.

GEMINI MAY 22 - JUNE 21 March begins with no less than five planets in the most prominent position of your chart. Career expansion on all levels is possible now as your goals and ambitions continue to be favoured. Creativity is in the spotlight; let your imagination run wild as this should be a month to be remembered!

CANCER JUNE 22 - JULY 22 March brings you a new kind soft and gentle energy, your heart is open and you may be ready to broaden your horizons. The new moon on the 11th is pivotal, and you should also feel a restored sense of courage and confidence at the Spring Equinox on the 20th as the Sun energises your career sector.

LEO JULY 23 - AUGUST 23 This month puts a big focus on all your financial dealings, legacies and resources. A review may well be necessary now. Motivational Mars leaps into fiery Aries on the 12th and coupled with the new moon, things could begin to turn around now. Be creative and use your imagination for a new project.

34

LIBRA SEPT. 23 - OCT. 23 March highlights your work, your health and all your daily routines. Five planets in Pisces challenge you to tune in and examine these areas. As your career expands, you’ll want to be sure that you work in the most rewarding way possible. Venus moving to Aries on the 22nd brings new and exciting ideas.

SCORPIO OCT. 24 - NOV. 22 March brings a dramatic shift to your personal energy as creative & innovative ideas are there to be grabbed. Your self-esteem should be an all time high & you’ll find the courage to take risks in areas you wouldn’t normally consider. Mars moves to Aries on the 12th and brings new opportunities your way.

SAGITTARIUS NOV 23 - DEC 21 This month turns your attention to your home and family. The concentrated energy of five planets in your domestic area leaves you no choice. This is a great time for extending and improving your accommodation. As Mars moves into passionate Aries on the 12th, your love life gathers momentum!

CAPRICORN DEC. 22 - JAN. 20 Reassessing your life and career goals is most important now. With five planets in the communication and learning sector of your chart, you’ll be moved to broaden your intellectual horizons. Energetic Mars in Aries gains speed in the domestic area of your chart after the 12th and it’s time for some home improvements!

AQUARIUS JAN. 21 - FEB. 18 March turns the spotlight on financial arrangements and you may well be looking at new creative ways to expand your income. It’s all change as fiery Mars moves into energetic Aries on the 12th, your confidence improves and you really do begin to put your beliefs and your values into action.
