Milk on the Menu at new Baby Café in Stanground

C

ake joined milk on the menu at Peterborough’s new Baby Café Local launch in Stanground. The Baby Café model provides a relaxed environment for mothers and their families where they can chat and learn about breastfeeding from qualified practitioners and each other. Mothers in Stanground are so welcoming of the support that many baked cakes to share at the launch.

Opening the Baby Café, which runs every Tuesday 1.30-3pm at Stanground Children’s Centre, was Janet Dullaghan, Assistant Director for Children’s Community Health, who recognises the need for the service to be available locally. Local NCT breastfeeding counsellors, with help from breastfeeding peer supporters, will provide essential support for mothers in the early months of life with a new baby. This has been facilitated by the merger of The Baby Café Charitable Trust and NCT - the UK’s largest parent’s charity - to help even more mums who want to breastfeed. The new addition to the Baby Café and NCT service range differs from the original Baby Café drop-in model as it will not always require an NHS employee to run sessions. Breastfeeding counsellors will be able to host sessions with funding from local health, education and children’s services providing an essential support service to mothers without the need to call on stretched staff in maternity and children’s services. Baby Café Local is a lower cost solution to providing high quality support and information – meeting the needs of local mothers and the aims of local services.

Now that the long, hot days of summer are fading to memory and the crisp nip in the air is marking the arrival of autumn, the low maintenance, casual and laidback beauty styles that have seen us through last season are in much need of updating

T

he light covering of tinted moisturiser and sweep of mascara that seemed so effortless yet effective when paired with beach tanned skin, becomes totally redundant when competing with a weatherbeaten face. Although the dark nights take a little getting used to, it's not all doom and gloom, as this time of year provides the perfect opportunity to expand your make-up bag, commit to a skin care regime and experiment with some brand new beauty looks. And we've certainly seen some exciting trends hitting the catwalk for this season. All of the top designers have showcased clothing collections full of sumptuous, indulgent fabrics that epitomise winter chic. But these collections would not have been half as effective if not combined with styled make-up and hair that, of course, is crucial in completing the look. The top make-up trends for autumn season have been established, so all that’s left is for us to take style inspiration and exchange our usual staid beauty routine for a truly inspired new look. Sporting 'swinging sixties' style, Anna Sui focused all attention on the eyes, with thick black lines of liquid liner and superbly volumised lashes, teamed with nude lips and natural hair. In contrast, Oscar de la Renta chose striking blusher shades, heavily defined brows and a prominent pink pout, with hair swept off the face in a classic ponytail; whilst Donna

10

Karan used autumnal shades of orange, tangerine and rust to create striking eye shadow hues. The nineties were revisited by Vera Wang. Grunge style was re-created with smudgy black liner, roughly applied metallic shadow and frosty pink lips finished with mussed-up hair - in true 'rock chick' style. But the trend that really seems to stand out is classic Hollywood glamour. Adopted by Diane von Furstenberg the look combines ravishing red lips, flawless foundation, a light smoky eye, curled and subtly mascara'd lashes and, of course, immaculately blow dried hair. It's a return to full on glamour that pays homage to a bygone era. The vampish style is undeniably sexy and the vintage edge makes it unquestionably chic. It's sophisticated, classy, refined and totally feminine. As a high maintenance trend you might think that it's all a bit too much trouble, but it’s amazing what a difference embracing even just one element can make - it is well worth a try.


To create the look you need the right tools….. A flawless base is essential. Begin by using a light moisturiser and add a creamy matt foundation to even out skin tone. (1. All About Face foundation, Ivory, £1.49 ). Brows must be tamed so use a brush to create a sweeping arch, pluck unwanted stray hairs and set in place with a gel.

Gift Vouchers Available Full range of Hair and Beauty treatments including Electrolysis and Holistic therapy 50% Discount with Junior Stylist

Combine a mixture of smoky shades on eyes and add a flick of black eyeliner, curl lashes and finish with mascara. (2. Body Shop eyeshadow £16, 3. Next black kohl pencil £3, 4. Body Shop ‘big and curvy’ waterproof mascara £10).

Call for Special Offers

Sweep a soft shade of blusher onto cheeks (5. Next blusher £4) and then concentrate on the all important pout. Find a red lipstick that compliments your skin tone.

(6. Body Shop lipsticks, various shades). Cool skin tones suit pink undertones, warm complexions are complemented by orangey reds and by choosing blue undertones in red lipstick, teeth will appear noticeably whiter.

Motor Review: Nissan Leaf Road Test It’s the first five-seater massproduced electric car, but James Baggott finds out the Leaf isn’t for everybody What is it? Nissan would have you believe it’s revolutionary. It’s the first five-seater, all-electric car in production, producing zero emissions and costing just £2 to ‘fill up’. The benefits don’t end there either. Buyers enjoy zero road tax and company car drivers won’t be clobbered by any Benefit in Kind. That means someone driving a 1.6-litre diesel Ford Focus, paying £4,000 company car tax per year, would see that amount back in their pay packets.

What’s under the bonnet? A big fat electric motor. Flip the catch, show any non petrol-head the unit and most will be convinced it’s a standard engine – to the uninitiated it certainly looks that way. It’s the fat power cables that give the game away. That motor produces 108bhp but it’s the big dollop of 280Nm of torque, available immediately, which really makes the difference. That’s equivalent to a Porsche Boxster and certainly makes the Leaf feel sprightly enough.

What’s the spec like? Nissan made little noise about spec on the launch, concentrating more on the technology, but customers will be pleased to hear there’s lots to entertain. Headliners include sat nav and reversing camera as standard, as well as central locking, alloys, climate control, a CD player and electric windows and mirrors. The only option is a solar panel on the spoiler that tops up the 12v battery. That costs £250.

What’s it like to drive? Nissan says the Leaf’s range is 109 miles and has calculated 95 per cent of daily car travel is less than 25 miles and the average journey is 8.5 miles. There are two power modes, a normal and an eco. In eco, power is seriously

16

reduced but the range improved and in normal the Leaf is surprisingly swift. What’s immediately apparent is how quiet the car is and how well it rides over bumps – you forget very quickly you’re driving an electric car.

What does the press think of it? Autoblog said the Leaf could possibly be the most impressive car it has driven all year. The Green Car Website loved it and said owners would claw back the higher purchase price with lower running costs. Autocar also said that despite the ‘real world range’ being only about 80 miles it was ‘easy to see its huge potential as a comfortable and practical school run car’.

What do we think of it? We like it a lot, but the 26 dealers currently selling it will need to heed the maker’s advice and ensure the right buyers are snapping them up. It’s true that at £25,990, with the government’s £5,000 grant thrown in, the Leaf looks expensive but we’d liken it to a new Apple Mac: It might do the same thing as a normal computer, but knowing you’re at the forefront of technology and slightly wacky-cool for owning it, will make that extra cash worth spending.

Selling Points 1. £1 will take you 73 miles – in a Focus diesel £1 is good for 11 miles 2. On a PCP (most popular buying method) it costs £399 per month. 3. Company car drivers will pay no Benefit in Kind.

Deal Clincher You can fuel it at home for just £2 a fill up.

Model: Nissan Leaf Price: £25,990 (inc. £5,000 government grant) Engine: electric motor

Power: 107bhp, 280Nm Max speed: 90mph 0-60mph: 11.9s MPG: 109mile range Emissions: 0g/km Residual values (three years): 37%

The Whinge Summer Time and the Living is WET, WET, WET

S

o summer’s here. You can tell it’s summer because it’s raining. I know it’s a bit of a cliché, but there’s a reason it’s a cliché. We should seriously think about changing the school summer holiday to fit the weather. It’ll be difficult to arrange but we should wait until we think it’s going to get hot and rush through an emergency summer holiday act. So then if we get a hot June like we seem to have in the last few years schools will close, we’ll all go on holiday and enjoy the sun. That way we’ll also boost the economy because people will take more holidays in the UK; firstly because it will be hot in this country, and secondly, nobody will know when the school summer break is so they won’t be able to plan far enough in advance to book an overseas holiday. By the time we announce the holiday season all the best places overseas will have been taken but our holiday season will be different from those overseas so wherever we go in the UK it won’t be full of overseas tourists. Now I know this sounds like a very radical approach and there will be all sorts of complications with it, but frankly it won’t be that different from Easter. We all pretend that we know Easter has something to do with a certain number of full moons after the first full moon of the New Year, but have any of us actually checked that Easter is at the right time each year. I know I just let Microsoft tell me when Easter is, it’s much simpler and of course, Microsoft would never get anything like that wrong. So is it all really worth the faff of a moving summer holiday? Well anyone who has ever been camping in this country will tell you that it is. You have two choices when booking a camping trip; you can wait for the weather to be good or book before Easter.

18

If you choose the first option then you are guaranteed the worst available camping sites in the places where nobody wants to holiday such as some industrial estate just next door to the oil refinery in Port Talbot. And the weather will change by the time you’ve finished packing up the car and it’ll rain day and night for the next two weeks. The second choice might sound better but, frankly, if you don’t book before Easter you’re stuck with the former situation. The only thing you can guarantee about early booking is that you’ve got a much better chance of getting the camp site you want. It’ll still rain from the moment you leave the driveway to the instant you return, but at least you’ll be stuck in a soaked tent on a site that you liked the pictures of in the brochure. Those pictures have, of course, been Photoshoped. It’s a well-known fact that as soon as you remove any camera from its case on a campsite it rains. Also have you noticed that those photos are usually of almost empty camp sites? That’s because they’ve been taken in June, when it’s sunny and when the kids are still in school, not in August, when it’s raining. Those of you who have been camping will appreciate my sentiments in this article. For those who haven’t, don’t. I can only think of one thing worse that pitching a tent in the rain, with all the arguments, swearing, frustrations and searching for the mallet, and that thing is packing it all away in the rain and having to get into the car and drive several hundred miles absolutely soaked to the skin. But at least you get another two weeks off work as you get over the flu, hypothermia and cholera from the camping trip. Problem is the kids are still not back at school yet. © 2011 Stephen Farringdon http://www.staphenfarringdon.com

Local Information — Local Information — Local Information Cake Bake raises much needed funds for local hospice A successful Cake Bake Sale was held recently at St Mary’s Court in Peterborough, raising £305 for Sue Ryder

True community spirit was witnessed as residents pulled together to raise the money in honour of Thorpe Hall Hospice being open for 20 years. Organiser June Phillips explained ‘I’m so pleased by the amount of people who attended our event as a lot of time went into it. All the cakes and snacks were home-made and amongst the things being sold were hand knitted toys.

June had a family member cared for at Thorpe Hall Hospice during its first year of being open. She continued ‘My mother was with Sue Ryder for one week. She was really into country western music, so the staff organised for a singer to come to the hospice to perform. It’s great to hear that things like this still happen 20 years later.’ Whilst collecting the generous cheque, Community Fundraiser Michael Clarke explained, “Sue Ryder has made a difference to so many lives in Peterborough and beyond during the last 20 years. If we continue to

receive cheques like this on a regular basis, it will ensure that we can continue for another 20 years. “ If the residents of St Mary’s Court have inspired you to fundraise for Sue Ryder during their 20th anniversary then contact Michael at Sue Ryder on 01733 330060 or email michael.clarke@sueryder.org
