Welcome Welcome to the June edition of the Bourne Scene! With the glorious late Spring weather, it may seem like we’ve had Summer already. Our gardens have flourished and in some cases flowered too early. Nothing can be done to halt this; enjoy it and nurture it. Keeping our plants watered through the dry spells can be as simple as getting the garden hose out; consider though a water butt or two, dish water and methods to prevent the borders drying out so quickly. See page 16 for some more tips. Beauty is all about simple steps to prepare and care for your skin as the short sleeves appear from the wardrobe. (pages 9 & 10). The Lincolnshire County Show is gearing up and we have two family tickets to giveaway this month, (pages 20 & 21). Out and about, there are lots of events going on (pages 36 & 37) and locally Bourne Woods offers a lovely retreat (pages 40 & 41). So enjoy the outdoors and if you get stuck indoors because of a summer shower, grab a book recommended by Freya North on (page 26).

Evening Dinner at Harley’s Diner – Naomi Hand

Harleys Diner in Market Deeping is a popular venue for a morning coffee, a cooked breakfast, lunch with friends or a snack in the afternoon. Added to this, owner Richard Swinscoe has introduced extended opening hours, through to the evening. I recently went for an evening meal at Harleys, with my husband, and we were both thoroughly impressed. The starters all looked tempting, but we decided on the seared field mushrooms served on char grilled bread with a garlic butter & rocket and also the tempura king prawns with a sweet chilli sauce – both wonderfully cooked and presented, but we both agreed the mushrooms were outstanding; soft and with a perfect amount of garlic butter. For the main course, I chose the monkfish with sweet chilli, noodles and

oriental vegetables. This was tender, with the noodles just right and not sticky. As if the mushroom starter had not impressed us enough, the Thai beef curry with jasmine rice and homemade prawn cracker outdid it; tender beef, sauce that was thick enough to stay on the meat and rice infused with a subtle flavour of jasmine. Desserts of Oero cheesecake & Key Lime pie rounded off the meal beautifully. We enjoyed Barefoot Pinot Grigio (California) with the meal and found all the portions of food were perfect for an evening meal. The service was excellent and everything about the meal would mean a repeat visit is on the cards very soon! Two courses £12/person Three courses £15/person, inc. a bottle of wine (wine offer Tues - Thurs)

I’m sure that you have had heard lots of conflicting exercise tips over the years, about the best way to train, so it is time to shed some light on some fitness myths floating around in the fitness world.

Myth 1

If you want to reduce the size of your hips, backside or stomach, then you should exercise that area

Unfortunately body fat is reduced from all over the body and not a specific area.You maybe making things worse in some cases, by exercising that zone (i.e. squats will add size to your backside). Body fat will generally burn from the inside first and then finally hit those hard to get areas, which typically are the first places to gain.You need to ensure that you combine weights, cardio and nutrition.

Myth 2 Lots of running, cycling, x-training and rowing is the key to losing body fat (all known as Cardio)

This Months Beauty Products Continued...

Well done if you are committed to all this, but too much will have a negative affect on your overall physique. Basically too much cardio will eventually put your body into a calorie deficit and then start to use your muscles for an energy source - NOT GOOD! You will then start to lose your definition and tone. Muscle is metabolically active and burns more calories at rest. Try to combine a toning session with short bursts of cardio to preserve muscle.

Myth 3

The best way to lose body fat is to eat very little calories Whilst reducing your calories intake steadily will enhance weight loss, decreasing the calorie intake drastically will make your body revert to starvation mode. Survival in this instance is the body’s number 1 priority which means holding onto your fat stores. Regular frequent snacks and meals are the key to success. Better to lose a little often,than to often not lose a little. 10

Why, if hypnosis is such a valuable tool, has it been neglected by the medical profession for so long?... This was asked in 1951 in ‘Concepts of Hypnosis’. Luckily over the last 60 years the medical profession have began to change their viewpoint on hypnosis & hypnotherapy. It’s taken a long time to get where we are now, and some people still think that by swinging a pocket watch or by a click of the fingers people can ‘go under’ and be controlled!!...nothing could be further from the truth!! Hypnosis was recorded as a religious rite in the temples of Iris, Nature Goddess of the Nile; Egyptologists have copied numerous engravings showing worshippers in poses unmistakably characteristic of hypnotic trance. A Greek engraving (928B.C) shows Chiron, renowned physician of his time placing his pupil Aesculapius under hypnosis – in fact, the word hypnosis comes from the Greek word ‘Hypnos’ meaning sleep! From every country, from every period of history, we find documentation attesting to the practice of hypnosis....from Frederick Anton Mesmer in 1773 (from where we get the phrase to be mesmerised) to Dr James Braid, a prominent Manchester surgeon, who is the father of scientific evaluation of hypnotism around 1840’s; Professor Charcot, the neurologist became enthralled in the late 1800’s at his Academy in France. A complete historical presentation of hypnosis would take volumes, suffice to say that Charcot found hypnosis at a crucial point in history and rescued it from an almost certain grave....The rest they say is history. Hypnotism is finally shrugging off the undeservedly poor reputation created by apparent mystical powers of stage hypnotists....people are more educated now and can find out for themselves how powerful the technique really is.

Yes, I know, it’s a bold statement to make but read on and I will explain what I mean by proving an altered state of awareness, we have all experienced this state before...watching TV and find yourself ‘staring into space’, when you have been driving and realise you cannot remember the last few miles of the journey, becoming so absorbed in something that you lose all trace of time. These, are all examples of an altered state of awareness.

WHAT CAN I DO FOR YOU?... .As you progress through life, experiences are gathered, mostly these are good, on occasions something maybe upsetting or even so horrific that you ‘lock away’ the experience, the unconscious mind protecting you. Consciously you may have no recollection of the event, but your unconscious memory keeps it stored. Then sooner or later something happens which causes the unconscious mind to react. Hypnotherapy can be used to resolve any of these problems, annoyances or irritations. Using hypnotherapy I can help you with: Anxiety issues, stress, fears & phobias, unwanted habits, weight control, self esteem, depression, stop smoking, IBS, Childbirth, pain, exams, public speaking, sports hypnosis and many more.

The rain in Spain, hasn’t made it here... As I write this Britain is in the grips of drought, looking at the grass you could mistakenly think its August! With the unusually warm weather plants are romping away and quickly getting stressed through lack of water, so here are some tips to help your garden cope. • • • • • • • • • •

Mulch plant roots with any well rotted organic matter to conserve moisture. Add water retaining granules to container composts. Raise the height of the cut on your lawns. Hoe off any competing weeds. Bath and washing up water can be used on the garden, except on fruit and veg. Early morning and evening is best for watering. Spray over foliage when watering. Make saucer shaped dips around new plantings to avoid run off. Invest in some water butts to catch the precious rain when it comes! Sink pots near the roots of thirsty vegetables like squashes and courgettes, and fill up daily.

Summer’s here! Hooray Summer is here! With the threat of late frosts over, roll out your bedding, line out your runner beans, dust off the deck chairs and pour out the Pimms!

Plant focus on Roses Roses, that most quintessential English flower, its heavenly fragrance and beautiful blooms bringing joy to any garden. But wait, Oh no! Green bugs, black blotches, my roses what am I to do? Well never fear, ‘Garden scene is here’; here’s my quick guide to perfect roses. • Black spot, mildew and aphids are the main problems you will encounter, treat when seen with a proprietary product from the garden centre. Healthy plants will fight off pest and diseases much more readily, so give your Roses a fortnightly foliar feed, spray the foliage with a seaweed based product with extra iron. • Good fertility is key so feed with a slow release rose fertiliser once in April and again at the end of June. • Ideally roses prefer a sunny position, sheltered from strong winds. • Avoid planting roses on a site where roses have been recently planted before. • Use a good deep mulch of well rotted organic matter to seal in moisture. • Dead head regularly to keep the flowers coming. • At the end of the year rake up and remove fallen rose leaves. • Roses are best planted in late Autumn/early winter, fork a bucket of compost into the planting hole and plant so the bud union is 2.5cm below the soil. by Joseph Whitehead

Refurbish or Replace your Kitchen

Home & Garden

Home & Garden

Replacing an existing kitchen is one of the most expensive and disruptive tasks that you can undertake. Before you make the decision to rip everything out and start again, there are a couple of things to consider: – • Are you currently in your forever home? • Does you current kitchen work? • What budget do you realistically have?


If you are not in your forever home and plan to sell your property within the next couple of years, consider if replacing your existing kitchen is worth the expense, time and effort. If your current layout works and the cabinet carcasses are still in good working order then why go to the heartache of replacing them? You can achieve a completely new look simply by updating some of the existing fittings. Not only will this be considerably cheaper but the work will be completed within a shorter time frame, with a lot less disruption. Start by calculating what budget you have to spend as this will help determine the level of improvements you can afford to make.You can gain a total new look by stripping the kitchen back to the bare carcass and replacing all fittings. However, if your budget doesn’t stretch that far, don’t worry, consider what combination of changes will give you the best results; a fresh new colour on the walls and ceiling, new handles on the cabinet doors and some trendy new tiles can help to transform a dated look.


June 2011 | Email:

If you opt for a full refurbishment consider using a local kitchen refurbishment company who will complete the work for you. However, if you are happy to take on the challenge yourself make sure that you do the following: • • • • • •

Measure all of your current kitchen doors, side panels and kickboards and then measure them again Make sure you can purchase replacements of the same size, check the positioning of the hinges Think about door handles and what style is required to ensure the new ones do not obstruct anything If you are replacing your worktop, check for joints and know where they are positioned If you are replacing any appliances, spend time measuring to ensure your replacement items will fit safely and securely Any gas appliances need to be disconnected and fitted by a registered gas fitter

Whatever you can afford, it might not give you the dream kitchen you were hoping for, but it will certainly help to make your home more presentable when the time comes to put your house on the market. Just remember when choosing your colours and design the kitchen is one of the major selling points so don’t put potential buyers off by opting for something too bizarre!

Replace If you are fortunate enough to be in your forever home the first thing to consider is what you want from your kitchen. Will the space allow for your design dream? If not, it may be worth considering a revamp rather than a replacement. However, if the space allows for a complete new design start by making a wish list of all the things you would like from your kitchen, this could be anything from somewhere to entertain, to having a built in wine rack. Write everything down, no matter how unachievable you think it might be. Next consider what budget you have. Plans never quite go to plan so make sure you have a little extra cash in reserve, just in case.

Once you have set your budget and agreed on the expectations from your new kitchen, it is time to think about the layout, design and colour. Remember that you don’t want to be changing your kitchen again anytime soon, so spend time shopping around looking for styles and designs that you like. Once you have an idea of style and colour, get your kitchen designed by a professional – many of the DIY stores offer free design and planning. They will come out to your home and talk to you about your expectations. Go through your wish list – but be aware you may have to compromise. They will take measurements and note where the current services are located and provide you with a printed plan. Whether you use the company or go elsewhere is up to you, however, unless you are a craftsman by trade, it is advisable to get your kitchen fitted by professionals. Like anything in this world, you get what you pay for, but if you give time to research your dream kitchen thoroughly, you will find some excellent value for money out there.

Family & Craft

County’s big day out promises more than ever

Ticket giveaway

Family & Craft

Here’s your chance to win a fantastic Family Ticket worth £40 to this year’s Lincolnshire Show. We have TWO to give way, and each one admits 2 adults and up to 3 children for one day of the Show.

Question: Where abouts would you find the Knights of the Damned at this year’s Show? Email by Tuesday 14 June with your contact details and quoting Lincs Show

The two-day Lincolnshire Show is overflowing with attractions for the whole family and organisers promise that it will be even bigger and better than ever. For at this 127th Show, there are more family attractions, more delicious foods from local producers, more schools taking part in the big Challenge and more sports to try out. There are also more new attractions - like Express Eventing and the Scruffts crossbreed pooch competition. Medieval jousting stunt team, the Knights of the Damned, return with a promise of more excitement when they perform on both days of the Show in the Isuzu Countryside Arena. Leader Justin Pearson is fresh back from performing stunts for blockbuster Pirates of the Caribbean IV and the troupe includes two local riders, Rob and James Pavey, both 21 and just qualifying as stuntmen. This year’s Sports Zone is doubled in size and in the run up to the 2012 Olympics, it will feature a chance to try out almost all the Olympic sports with appearances from Olympic and Paralympic hopefuls from the county. This year is a real first for dog lovers. For the first time dogs will be allowed to join in the fun at the Show as long as they are on a lead, and owners can also leave them with a special doggy-crèche being run by local animal charity, Jerry Green Dog Rescue.


Potato planting with the children • A major new attraction - Express Eventing; a mini version of top class equestrian eventing • The Select Lincolnshire and Tastes of Lincolnshire Food Court will feature a special Lincolnshire producer and supplier section this year, with a mouth-watering selection of local produce and some great homemade recipe demonstrations. • In the Greenhouse, a range of companies will be explaining how to live a more sustainable lifestyle with technologies that include solar power, biomass, wind turbines, ground source heat pumps and rain water harvesting. • And for the shopper, there will be more than 600 stands to visit, including the boutique style shopping on The Mews avenue featuring everything from bespoke kitchens to handmade pearl bracelets.

You don’t need a allotment or large space in the garden to grow potatoes. Bags or sacks are ideal and fun for the kids too! You can buy a kit from the garden centres which includes a few bags and the tubers (see potatoes). • In each bag, place five tubers on top of 15-20cm of good quality compost. Then cover with a further 10cm of compost. • As the shoots start to appear through the compost, add most compost on top to keep the potato covered. Repeat this until the compost is a few centimetres below the top of the bag. • Keep the soil moist, but not saturated. There are many varieties available now, but if you’re growing in just a few bags then the first earlies may suit you best. They are best harvested in small quantities & eaten straight away.

Super easy Playdough recipe:

• • • • •

1/2 cup of salt 1 cup of flour 1 tablespoon of cream of tartar 1 tablespoon of oil 1 cup of boiling water mixed food colouring

It’s all taking place at the Lincolnshire Showground, Grange de Lings on Wednesday 22nd and Thursday 23rd June 2011.

For alternative colouring, try glitter, leave some fruit teabags in the hot water for a natural colour.

8am to 6pm each day. Ticket hotline 0845 2305171

Put all the dry ingredients in a bowl and then mix vigorously with the hot water. Store in tubs or food bags to keep it soft. | Twitter: @lincsshow June 2011 | Email:

THE GARDEN OF Contemporary sculpture in an historic setting. On entering the Sculpture Garden visitors are welcomed by a mixed array of trees and shrubs for all seasons, many framed with an evergreen backdrop of common laurel. These shrubs form a major structural element within the gardens, forming archways and external rooms where discreetly hidden sculptures can be found. Annual exhibitions of sculptures run from April to October along with permanent pieces, which can be viewed all the year round, including the grass maze designed by Peter Randall Page which gives fun to the young and old.

Author of 10 bestselling novels and winner of the Romantic Novel of the Year, Freya’s 11th novel, Chances, is available now.

Riding high in the bestseller charts with her new novel, Chances, author Freya North tells us what she’ll be reading this month.

Grades 1-5 ABRSM

THE PERFECT PICNIC by Hilda Leyel Square Peg £9.99 Everyone’s heard of Mrs Beeton… yet many foodies and top chefs credit Hilda Leyel’s recipes as their inspiration to cook. Born in 1880, she wrote The Perfect Picnic in 1936 but it’s as relevant now as it was then: inventive recipes championing local, seasonal ingredients. Mrs Leyel promoted our traditional

favourites like raised pies and crusty egg mayonnaise sandwiches – but inspired a little refinement. Spiced plum cake and salted almonds is a fine example of her cooking where retro meets modern. Heading in to picnic season, this is a lovely book to read - where recipes are delicious yet practical. So dust down your wicker basket, shake out an old run – and off you go!

LONDON UNDER by Peter Ackroyd Chatto & Windus, £12.99

THE PILE OF STUFF AT THE BOTTOM OF THE STAIRS by Christina Hopkinson Hodder & Stoughton £12.99

Peter Ackroyd’s previous books London: The Biography and Thames: Sacred River have quite rightly won various awards and sold in the zillions. You really don’t have to be a Londoner, or even a city-dweller to be captivated by them. Now, with all the zeal and eloquence of a passionate tour guide, Ackroyd takes the reader deep under the city – somewhere he astutely describes as “a second earth… it elicits sensations of wonder and of terror. It partakes of myth and dream in equal measure.” The book is fantastically atmospheric – digging deep into what goes on underground when an age-old city lies above it.

I met journalist and fellow author Christina Hopkinson recently and liked her enormously, partly because her life seemed even more chaotic than mine. I love the title of her new novel – and was delighted to find the content of the book just as entertaining yet insightful too. Mary Gilmour, the heroine, senses her life is going down a plug hole clogged with cornflakes and Play-Doh. She works part time, housework appears to be a second, full time job and she finds she has no time for her sons or husband Joel. She hatches a plan – star charts worked for her children so she designs the equivalent for husband, Joel. And she gives him 6 months to redeem himself. Essentially, the novel is a love story - You’ll laugh, you’ll nod – and you’ll feel a bit better of your own pile of stuff at the bottom of your stairs.

Bountiful Botswana

Now Accessible For More Budget Conscious Travellers

17% of the land mass is dedicated to game reserves, and as MD, Steve Daykin points out, if you want to see nature in its most uncompromised state, Botswana is greatly suited.“With a population of only 1.3m, Botswana provides ultimate escapism, offering a break from the concrete jungle and a chance to connect with all the fruits of nature. With its magnificent range of different ecosystems and abundance of wildlife and birdlife, Botswana is simply stunning, and now accessible for all”. For those with a tad more cash to spare, Botswana can be combined with visits to many of the highlights of the surrounding regions – maybe visit the awe-inspiring Victoria Falls or chic Cape Town or spend some idyllic beach time on the Indian Ocean islands of Mauritius or Mozambique. Inspirational Travel tailor-make itineraries to cater for varying durations and budgets.

Traditionally a holiday destination that thrived on high yield and low impact tourism, Botswana isn’t famed for attracting the more budget conscious traveller. All that is set to change with a new series of affordable itineraries created by local travel company, Inspirational Travel.


Botswana’s key tourist destinations, during peak season, have asked as much as USD $1,200 per person per night (approx £750.00). Inspirational Travel, however, are now offering safaris starting at just £1,200 per person. Managing Director, Steve Daykin explains; “Botswana is a fabulous place to visit, but previously this hasn’t been possible for many individuals and families due to excessive pricing. Now, what with the economy forcing purse strings to tighten, holidays to Botswana have become seemingly beyond reach. However, we have worked diligently with our strategic partners to design exciting, affordable itineraries to suit those travelling on a more modest budget”. June 2011 | Email:

Inspirational Travel has created a range of exciting safari itineraries of varying lengths and start with their 4-night “Affordable Botswana” safari with prices from just £1,200 per person. The itinerary includes 2-nights in the Okavango Delta at Kanana Camp and 2-nights in Moremi Game Reserve at Okuti Camp. The price of £1,200 includes shared accommodation, flights within Botswana, game activities, all meals and drinks, laundry service, park entrance fees and departure taxes. Botswana is a vast land of contrasting flora and fauna. The country is landlocked between South Africa, Zimbabwe, Namibia and Zambia and is covered by savannah scrub and the dry, arid Kalahari sands, which are then broken by the breathtaking Okavango Delta, the saltpans of Makgadikgadi and the swamps and flood plains of the Chobe River. Collectively these areas constitute a range of eco-systems unparalleled in Africa and are abundant in bird, plant and wildlife.

Motoring But back to the fundamental running costs of the car; Hyundai has developed three e xceptionally efficient engines which power the ix20: a 1.4-litre with 90PS in both petrol and diesel, and a125PS petrol mated to an automatic transmission. Hyundai expects its new ‘U2’ common-rail diesel engine to be the most popular choice among British buyers looking for exceptional economy. The U2 engines use high-pressure common rail injection, electronically-controlled Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) and a Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) to ensure they meet Euro V emissions regulations. What’s more, fitted with Integrated Stop-Start technology and a six-speed manual gearbox, the 1.4 CRDi Style version of the ix20, on test here, records CO2 emissions of just 114g/

However, Hyundai is doing its bit to help ease the cost of everyday motoring by producing the thrifty new ix20. The latest model to join the South Korean company’s ‘i-range’ line-up of vehicles has the style of a supermini, the space of Doctor Who’s TARDIS and the economy of a city car. Every manual model features Intelligent Stop & Go technology, low rollingresistance Continental tyres and an Alternator Management System (AMS), giving it the lowest emissions and fuel consumption in the class. In fact the ix20 is so fuel efficient it can actually better or match the figures for rivals’ city cars. Made at Hyundai’s newest European plant in Nošovice, Czech Republic, the ix20 is essentially a compact MPV (Multi-Purpose Vehicle) with a healthy dose of fashion and functionality. It is not, in my opinion, good-looking but it

km and returns an average fuel economy of 65.7mpg. These class-leading figures will bring reduced motoring costs through lower road fund licence costs as well as saving pounds at the pumps. Ok, by their very nature, MPVs, large or small, are never exhilarating to drive, and the ix20 is no exception. But the car is impressive in so many other respects. It is roomy, tremendously economical, it has a five-star Euro NCAP safety rating, it has 20,000-mile service intervals and comes with Hyundai’s five-year unlimited-mileage warranty, plus five years of roadside assistance and free vehicle health checks. Phew! By my reckoning all that makes the ix20 ideal for anyone looking for a cost-effective, practical, modern day motor.

does have a chic sporty profile, which sets it apart from the boxy ‘minivan’ image typically associated with other MPVs. Inside, the ix20 is firmly screwed together and matches the spirited design of the exterior. The wellappointed cabin features a height adjustable driver’s seat, air conditioning, six airbags, active head restraints, radio/CD audio system with six speakers, plus CD, MP3 and USB-/AUX-/ iPOD-input capabilities. More importantly, the car provides excellent legroom and headroom in the front and rear. It is also very easy to achieve a comfortable driving position. And once on the move, the ix20 delivers an alert and supple ride, even over the most pothole ravaged roads. That is no surprise though because the car is the first in Hyundai’s history to be extensively tested on the worst of British roads. Telephone: 01780 783613 | June 2011

Bourne Woods: Getting Closer to Nature Now that spring is here, it is time to get those walking boots out and enjoy some of the breathtaking flora and fauna that are waiting to be found at the Bourne Woods, a place which makes up part of the larger Kesteven Forest and was once part of the ancient Brunswald Forest. Since 1926, the area has been owned by the Forestry Commission who continuously work at re-generating the site which is said to comprise of approximately 400 acres of land. Located just outside of Bourne (roughly ½ mile), off the A151, everyone will be able to appreciate a place that has a very lengthy and distinctive history which offers a couple of different walks (if you are feeling adventurous), but there is also the opportunity to simply sit back and revel in the wonders of nature whilst having a quiet family picnic.

The Age of Bourne Woods With Bourne Woods, the views and relaxing atmosphere have and continue to make this a great place to visit and it really is a great way of enjoying a natural and historic setting. According to an entry made in the Doomsday Book, it was recorded that the site has housed woodland since 1086.

With the lengthy tracks, horse riding is another pastime which can be done within the woods.


Flora / Fauna When it comes to visiting any woodland location, a lot of people actually go to view some of the flora and fauna that are known to reside in the area and with Bourne Woods, there are plenty of animals and plants to find, which could be a fun activity for all ages. These are just some of the possibilities: Fallow and Muntjac Deer Nightingales Hawthorn Hazel These are just a few things to look for, but if you do pay a visit to the woods then you will realise there are plenty of different plants that grow there. For a better idea of what you can expect to see, the Friends of Bourne Woods website will help you learn more.

If you are interesting in going for a walk in the woods, you will be pleased to know that there are two different trails to choose from. by Clare Stubbs These are known as the Nightingale Trail and the Larch Walk. As the name suggests, the Nightingale Trail has been aptly called this because of the large numbers of nightingales known to inhabit the woods. This walk starts from the car park and it will take you past a number of key features, including the beautiful ponds and a sculpture which is known as the “Shelter Skelter“. If you are interested in this particular trail then you will find the route is clearly indicated with orange markers. If you are going to be visiting the woods with young children then the Larch Walk might be an ideal choice. Like with the Nightingale Trail, it begins from the car park and will take you past a children’s playground. There are plenty of different plants to view on this walk and you may even see a few sculptures.

Port Poached Pear & Stilton Tart – Serves 6

102 Church Street Market Deeping

Stilton cheese is traditionally matched with port and is often paired with pears. This recipe combines the three elements for a warm starter. Most of the work can be done ahead, with just 15 minutes cooking prior to serving.

Ingredients 3 Conference Pears (the firm flesh holds together well during poaching) I 300 ml Port A Pinch of Mixed Spice | 200 gm Blue Stilton | 6 Rounds of Puff Pastry 12cm diameter (home-made if you have the afternoon spare or bought is fine) | 1 Egg, beaten You will need a flat baking tray with non-stick liner, a sharp paring knife and a pastry brush.

The day before :1. Peel, then top & tail the pears and cut in half down the middle. Hollow out the core then trim the pointy end and any sharp edges until the pear resembles the shape of a coracle (a small round boat). 2. Put the pears into a saucepan just big enough to fit the 6 halves in a single layer, then cover with the port. (Top up with water if the pears aren’t quite covered). 3. Add the spice then simmer very gently, with the lid on, until the pears are soft but not floppy. (Approx 30 mins) 4. Allow the pears to cool, then refrigerate (still in the port) overnight.


Can you afford to live to 100? It has long been accepted that improvements in medicine, lifestyle and an understanding of the effects which habits such as smoking can have on our health means life expectancy is increasing. Future generations will enjoy much longer and healthier lives on average than their predecessors. However, figures released in April 2011 by the Department of Work & Pensions illustrate rather accurately exactly what that means. These figures suggest, of the under 16s already alive today, over a quarter are going to reach the age of 100 – and already, the average new-born female is going to live to over 90. As Steve Webb, Minister for Pensions, commented at the time, this means that


millions of people will spend over a third of their life in retirement. However, as the DWP were quick to point out, this news also coincides with a period during which pension savings are in serious decline. An ageing population is putting our welfare system under significant pressure as more people need not only pension income but also healthcare, incapacity support and help within the home.You can therefore have no expectation that your State Pension will provide anything other than a safety cushion when the time comes. If your retirement plans include holidays, visiting relatives and treating yourself on occasion, then it is time to take action on your pension, call us on 01778 342291 and we will guide you.

On the day:5. 6. 7.


Preheat the oven to 190C and warm the baking tray. Score a smaller circle in the pastry rounds big enough to contain the pear (this allows the pastry to rise around the edge without dislodging the pear) and brush the outer ring with beaten egg. Take the hot tray from the oven. Lay down the pastry rounds and place a pear half (rounded side down) on each. Pop a big lump of stilton into the hollow, then bake on the top shelf for 15 minutes until the stilton has melted and the pastry is golden brown. Serve immediately.
