Welcome to the May edition of ‘The Viewer’ Hope you all had a good April and a relaxing and peaceful Easter break despite the wet and miserable weather. You may be pleased to hear, while I was abroad with my husband and daughter over the Easter holiday, it actually rained every day!!! Lesson learnt is to never again complain about our lovely British weather. This month we are supporting three charity events you may be interested in joining and help raise some much needed funds. Firstly, on 12th May - Pop around Peterborough for the Arthritis Research UK. This is only a 5 mile charity walk for the whole family where you can win a prize (see page 40). On 10th July, Race for Life returns to Ferry Meadows. A 5k walk, jog or run to suit everyone. If cancer has touched you, as it has myself, I’m sure you will want to help this very popular charity (see page 6). And finally, if you prefer something a little more challenging, why not join The British Heart Foundation at the Rockingham Forest Bike Ride on 24th June. There are 2 routes - 25 miles or 50 miles, both start and finish in Ferry Meadows, see page 47 for details. I will be joining the Race for Life on 10th July and walking in memory of my wonderful dad. If you cannot take part in any of these charities, but would like to help, then please sponsor me by emailing or calling me - see details below. It’ll be lovely to hear from you. Finally, I hope you all have a great month!

Gliding “newbie” Andy Warren was hooked from his first trial flight – you will be too....

I

t was July 2010 I had persuaded the family to go to the Peterborough and Spalding Gliding Club Open Day. While I was determined to try a flight in a glider I was quietly apprehensive that I may not enjoy it. Mike was the duty instructor on the day and briefed me all about what I could expect. The weather was good and the sky was filled with puffy white clouds, the type glider pilots really like, apparently! A parachute was placed on my back and I was then strapped in. That was it really, thirty minutes later we landed and I was truly addicted to glider flying. The next week I enrolled as a student and the fun, fear & hard work all began in earnest. The first few lessons were relatively easy as I mastered the very basics of gliding. As my training progressed, however, more responsibility was passed my way and challenges started to creep in. At times it felt like riding on the world’s largest roller coaster, having a glider put into a spin and being asked to recover, witnessing an instructor loop the loop or perform a chandelle – an aircraft control manoeuvre where the pilot combines a 180° turn with a climb. All are both exhilarating and death defying! Trying to master the Aerotow (being towed airborne attached to a powered plane) and judgement call for when and exactly where you will be landing were the most difficult tasks for me. The Areotow does come with practice and I can now perform “boxing the tug” - a manoeuvre used to allow a glider pilot to come up alongside the tow plane while still in a climb & to be able to use hand signals if the radio has failed. Landing a glider safely - well that does take time; concentration and good judgement especially critical as different eventualities can present themselves at any given moment.

8

I am not sure whether it is the surreal quiet atmosphere or the wonderful views but when I am floating around the clouds on a calm summer’s day there seems no better time or place to be. It is so distant from the hustle and pace we seem to live back down on the ground and although time does not stop, it does seem to stand still. A Gliding experience is a tick box I wanted to achieve, I never thought just what an amazing ongoing experience it would turn out to be. Finding that great thermal which will take you up at 500-1000 feet a minute leaves you feeling respectful for the power of the sun. The other aspect of the club I enjoy is the great camaraderie and team work; we all love the sport and everyone mucks in to get the gliders out and maintained the instructors all give their time for free. At the end of a good day’s flying we all end up in the club house having a drink at the bar & some great stories are told of past adventures.

BEAUTY

Courtesy of Clinique

A

trip to the beauty salon is the ultimate treat for many women after a stressful and hectic day. But, ‘me time’ should continue at home too as regular care of your skin will have lifetime benefits. A facial is a great pick-me-up and one of those all-important treatments that not only results in glowing skin, but leaves you feeling relaxed and rejuvenated too. And what’s more you can achieve near professional results at home. Part of the joy of treating yourself to a salon session is soaking up the atmosphere - the gentle lighting and soothing music equal total relaxation - so recreate that by turning your bathroom into a candle lit haven, that’s delicately fragranced and full of luxurious accessories. Cleanse away the day by removing all traces of make-up. You must use a liquid eye make-up remover, cleanser and toner make up remover wipes are convenient but

14

not as thorough nor as pleasant to use. Use a muslin cloth that’s been submerged in hot water to place over the face in order to open up the pores. Leave for a few moments before repeating. Double cleanse by using a wash off cleanser that will extract any deeply ingrained dirt and grime. Smooth the product over the face and neck, before removing using circular, upward motions. Splash with water. Now that the skin is at this stage it’s time to work on congested areas. If you are prone to blackheads then a good exfoliator is essential for clearing out blocked pores. And what’s more, they are great for removing dead skin cells and revealing brighter, fresher and younger looking skin. Apply the exfoliant to damp skin and work all over, concentrating on the forehead, nose and chin. Always use upwards, circular movements and don’t be tempted to scrub - light strokes are all that’s needed.


After exfoliating, apply a face mask. Ensure that it’s the right kind for you - if you have combination skin then use assorted masks, applied in different areas for the very best results. Many beauty therapists do this so that they can address the requirements of each part of the face. Thermal masks are fabulous. They gently heat up to draw out impurities and prove to be the perfect pampering treat.

Moisturise using a product that suits your skin’s needs and as you apply treat yourself to a mini massage that will stimulate circulation and bring much needed oxygen and nutrition to the surface. Work from the centre of your face, moving upwards and outwards, using your fingers and palms to lift and smooth the skin. Don’t forget to include your neck in the massage too. The results are sure to be amazing.

With your face mask on, it’s time to sit back, relax and enjoy doing nothing for a few minutes. Use a wet face cloth to remove the mask and splash your face with cool water before drying thoroughly. At this point your skin should be feeling totally refreshed and super soft, but there is still more to do. Applying an eye cream is a must to protect against and fight off wrinkles. Start at the outer most point of the eye and use light tapping motions to press the product into the skin. Because the eye area is so sensitive it really is vital that you do not rub, drag or pull.

The partnership between Nene Park Academy and PUFC is really exciting...” Darren Ferguson

A

t the start of this year, Nene Park Academy established a partnership with Peterborough United which has led to the academy becoming the home of the Club’s first team training ground and of the Club’s Youth Academy. Twelve boys, in the Youth Academy, joined the school in years 9, 10 or 11 and, alongside their academic studies, have had access to their training and coaching during the curriculum day. They now get 16 hours of fitness and skills coaching a week, instead of just 4, alongside a full GCSE curriculum programme. This arrangement ensures that their coaching sits alongside their academic studies, with no negative impact. A number of the year 11 students have already achieved higher grades in their Maths and English and feel delighted with the success they are enjoying on and off the field. “The year has been great. The best bit has been having the opportunity to train during the day alongside the first team. We have also been more focused on our classroom studies because Mr Scarff is both a coach and our Senior Tutor in Perkins House, so we have to try as hard in the classroom as in the training.” Matt Carter, Year 11. Incredibly, two of the year 11 boys have already been on the bench for the first team at London Road and five of the current cohort have already been signed up for 2 year scholarships at the club. The programme has attracted a lot of national attention with representatives from a number of clubs including Chelsea coming to see this unique partnership between a school and professional football club, which also sees the school’s football teams receiving coaching sessions from some of the football club’s coaches. The future is also bright with over 20 boys signed up for the coming year and the club looking to invest in a flood lit, all-weather training facilities alongside a new pavilion with medical, Physio and educational facilities for use by the school and club. Peterborough United Manager, Darren Ferguson said “The partnership with Nene Park Academy is really exciting and, with their excellent support, we are continuing to enhance our training facilities. We are proud to be investing in our local community & we are developing local, talented footballers in a unique way through the Youth Academy programme.” Academy Principal (and POSH Season Ticket holder) Mark Woods added “We know that Nene Park Academy will become the pride of our community and we are delighted how this, and other partnerships, complement the rapid improvements taking place within the academy .”

GARDENING

By Pippa Greenwood

M

ore and more people have become concerned about using chemicals in t h e g a rd e n . I nd e e d , s om e gardeners have used chemicals rarely, if at all, for many years. It may be that you are worried about wildlife and conservation in general or you may also be concerned about using gardening pesticides on plants that children or pets might play near, or that you intend to eat. Greener gardening is not difficult, it is just different. Some of the most infuriating pests are to be found in greenhouses, conservatories and other protected areas, where they can thrive and breed rapidly. It is a great help to know that there are now many ‘natural’ controls available in the form of predators and parasites, which can be purchased from mail order suppliers (including www.pippagreenwood.com) and then released into your greenhouse or conservatory. These insects or mites do a great job of keeping many common pests at bay, including whitefly, red spider mite and mealy bugs. There are also excellent controls available for slugs and for vine weevils, both

24

of which can be used successfully outside too. For those who are troubled by pests such as leather jackets (symptoms are deteriorating patches in the lawn, shortly followed by the lawn being ripped up by birds or badgers searching for the ‘delicious’ grubs) or chafer grubs (also responsible for damage caused by eating plant roots), there are now biological controls available to keep these at bay too. There is also a fairly new control available, which sends ants off in the other direction – wonderful if you like to lie on the lawn or enjoy meals in your garden without being nipped! I garden organically so I use these biological controls regularly. If your conservatory is also used as a place where you or the family relax or perhaps enjoy a drink or a meal, I’d say it is especially important not to fill it full of potentially harmful chemicals. If you want to try these controls then you will need to make sure that your greenhouse or conservatory is not already packed full of chemical residues - otherwise they may kill the beneficial creatures you are introducing.


For whitefly you need a tiny parasitic wasp called Encarsia and for red spider mite you need another mite, this time the predatory Phytoseiulus. Introduce these in amongst the infested plants and they will automatically go in search of the pests, soon getting their numbers under control and all without you having to lift a finger. It may sound off-putting to release wasps into your greenhouse or conservatory (or mites come to that) but these little creatures are tiny and will not bite or sting: they are only interested in the pests. Biological controls, including those for slugs and vine weevils, are all tricky for garden centres to stock, as what you are buying are living creatures which won’t survive if left sitting on a warm shelf for too long. Mail order is therefore the best way to buy generally, with your predators or parasites arriving in the post along with strict instructions for storage (they should usually be kept in the fridge) and for using before the use-by date expires. But don’t let this put you off: biological controls are

excellent and are used by many professional growers. To ensure success you must follow the instructions precisely and make sure you introduce the control when there are a few, but not too many, pests around. If you wait until the air is choked with whitefly it can be a bit too much of an uphill struggle for the tiny little wasps. But the great thing is that you can relax in the knowledge that you’re not jeopardising any wildlife and that, in many cases, the biological control becomes selfperpetuating as the ‘critters’ you have bought breed and spread within the greenhouse. Now that’s what I call useful. Visit Pippa’s website www.pippagreenwood.com and sign up for her newsletter (and receive a free ebook on organic gardening) and shop from the new products area which offers a great selection of biological controls (for slugs, vine weevils, red spider mite, whitefly etc) plus growing frames, cloches, raised bed kits and lots, lots more.

Monthly Tips for your Pet Lungworm – The New Pet Parasite On The Block

F

leas and worms are not only a nuisance to your pet; they can also cause health problems, and even healthy looking cats and dogs may have worms if not regularly treated with a preventative wormer. Some worms can cause serious health problems in pets, as well as the owners if passed to them. Plus there’s a new worm that has only recently spread to the UK to join the pet parasite party. There is now a threat to the UK dog population in the form of the lungworm (Angiostrongylus Vasorum), which is carried by slugs, and snails. The problem arises when dogs purposefully or accidentally eat these common garden visitors when they are rummaging through undergrowth, eating grass, drinking from outdoor water bowls, or pick them up from toys left out in the garden.

Can any dog be infected? Yes, any dog can potentially become infected if they eat a slug or snail carrying the larvae of the parasite, and the warm and damp conditions associated with the spring and autumn months provide ideal breeding conditions for slugs and snails, potentially increasing the risk of infection. Lungworm infection – what to look out for Symptoms are many and varied but can include breathing difficulties, ranging from a lack of energy to coughing. Dogs may also show general signs of being unwell including weight loss, reduced appetite and vomiting. Persistent bleeding, even from minor cuts is also a sign to watch out for. However, the symptoms can be varied so if owners are concerned about their dog’s health, they should seek veterinary advice immediately.

34

What to do next? Conventional use of worming tablets is not effective against this parasite, however a specific spot-on treatment available from Vets (following a check-up) that treats fleas and other parasites, also treats the lungworm disease. Recent advance means that this spot-on has also now been shown to prevent dogs developing a lungworm infection when used regularly. Call to make an appointment with one of our team to get further advice on how to protect your pet and family from the risks posed by parasites such as fleas, worms, mites and lice.

Hospital Staff Get Ready to Walk… Staff from the R heumat ol ogy Department at the Peterborough Hospital are taking part in a new local event in aid of Arthritis Research UK. The team have signed up to ‘Pop around Peterborough’, which is a 5 mile sponsored charity walk where prizes will be won, taking place on May 12th, 2012. All walkers will be given an Arthritis Research UK balloon, which they will ‘POP’ once crossing the finish line, to find out if they have won a prize. The team from the Rheumatology Department see Arthritis sufferers on a daily basis and know too well the complications and pain that it can cause people. Consultant Rheumatologist, Dr Sandeep Dahiya, explained “We see so many people each day that suffer with this condition. So many people associate Arthritis with the elderly but it affects children too. “We also see how affective modern medication is for people with Arthritis. This medication probably wouldn’t be available to the public if it wasn’t for the Research put into the condition. We wanted to take part in this event to see that the research continues.” Michael Clarke, who is the event organiser and Regional Fundraising Manager for Arthritis Research UK added, “Lots of people have already shown an interest in this event, and I’m appealing to everyone in Peterborough and the surrounding area to sign up and help support us on this exciting day.

40

Prizes for the walk include a flat screen TV donated by British Sugar, a night at the Peterborough Greyhound Stadium for up to 40 people (worth £600), a signed POSH shirt, signed Phantoms Hockey stick, family days out and a book signed by local actor Warwick Davis. Entry for Pop around Peterborough is just £5 per person which includes a fantastic goodie-bag and the chance of winning prizes worth hundreds of pounds.

For May 2012 - By Astrologer Christine Chalklin TAURUS APRIL 21 - MAY 21 A month of personal growth and transformation as abundant Jupiter gets close and personal with your Sun. You will be looking at the way others perceive you and how you could strengthen your sense of self and gain in confidence. Hard work and accomplishment are possible now. GEMINI MAY 22 - JUNE 21 Its all systems go with your domestic life this month, energetic & fiery Mars provides you with extra energy, motivation and power to move forward with your plans. Money might be invested in your home, and turning a long-standing dream into reality is now possible. CANCER JUNE 22 - JULY 22 Communication is high on your agenda this month as energetic Mars stirs you into action. You could surprise those around you who are used to your demure and conciliatory approach to life. The full moon on the 6th is very favourable for bringing your determination to the forefront. LEO JULY 23 - AUGUST 23 Finances are still high on your agenda during May and new and innovative earning potentials can come to the forefront. The spectacular alignment of the Sun and benevolent Jupiter on the 12th occurs in the career angle of your chart. You could receive the good news that you’ve been waiting for. VIRGO AUG. 24 - SEPT. 22 Mighty Jupiter smiles favourably on you during this month, helping you to treat minor inconveniences with a positive attitude and also boosting your morale. Neptune may well be casting a veil of confusion over partnership matters, but on the whole, romance can flourish and bloom. LIBRA SEPT. 23 - OCT. 23 The Sun and optimistic Jupiter are aligning themselves very nicely in one of the financial areas of your chart. This could be a very auspicious month for Librans. Financial opportunities will most certainly present themselves to you, and the 12th could turn out to be particularly lucky.

46

SCORPIO OCT. 24 - NOV. 22 The month begins with a full moon in your sign on the 6th. This could turn out to be a rather introspective month as transformational Pluto also encourages you to look within for buried treasure. You could uncover facets of your personality that you haven’t yet accepted or acknowledged. SAGITTARIUS NOV. 23 - DEC. 21 A busy month for you as the spectacular alignment of the Sun and expansive Jupiter on the 12th brings the culmination of an important work project. Events occur that highlight your responsibilities in your professional life. You might also use this time to reassess your romantic goals. CAPRICORN DEC. 22 - JAN. 20 Romance is in the spotlight this month as the Sun cuddles up to expansive Jupiter on the 12th. You have been evaluating what you need in a relationship and are probably quite surprised to find that freedom is very important to you. Don’t push yourself too hard, relaxation is important now. AQUARIUS JAN. 21 - FEB. 18 Enthusiasm and optimism should be high on the agenda for you this month. You’ll have big ideas about how to increase your income. While you continue to brainstorm money making potentials, your attention also turns to learning, networking and communicating in exciting new ways. PISCES FEB. 19 – MARCH 20 The alignment of Sun & Jupiter put you in a courageous and optimistic mood. Your path to greatest fulfilment is through avoiding becoming too dependent on others and recognizing your ability to stand alone. In the past this has not always been easy, but in this new cycle it could become second nature. ARIES MARCH 21 - APRIL 20 Finances are in the spotlight this month as the Sun illuminates all areas of earning and spending. Income may be somewhat erratic, but after the alignment of the Sun and Jupiter on the 12th you should get a better handle on the situation and a lucky break could come your way.
