Christmas 1913 Suffragette outrage! Christmas a hundred years ago was the last peacetime Christmas for five years. I soon found it was anything but peaceful in Cheltenham, for the local newspapers had only one headline story, illustrated opposite. The details make interesting reading. Exactly a century ago Cheltenham felt the effects of the Suffragettes' campaign of violence to secure Votes for Women when two of their members attempted to burn down Alstone Lawn, a large country mansion on the edge of the town, standing where Gloucester Road meets Alstone Lane. What the newspaper report opposite does not tell us is that the young women were not local, coming from Birmingham. It also doesn't mention that Alstone Lawn had stood empty for two years, so there was nobody at home to stop them from setting the house on fire. The swift action of the fire brigade limited the damage to a staircase and the roof above it, estimated at £400-£500. However the house was never repaired and was later demolished. Suffragette literature found in the house gave the police a clue to look for two young women smelling strongly of paraffin. They were soon arrested in the town as they made no attempt to flee the scene. Their attempt to seek publicity for their cause continued after their arrest when they refused to replace their stockings and shoes, and refused to give their names, so the newspapers called them 'Red' and 'Black'. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to discover what happened at Worcester. It is not therefore surprising that this episode dominated Cheltenham's Christmas and it even appeared in newspapers as far away as the United Page 6

States, Australia and New Zealand. There was strong disapproval of their action, 'Imperialist' wrote to the Gloucestershire Echo, “The voters of Cheltenham are, and justly so, thoroughly sick of votes for women”! Not until 1929 did women gain the same voting rights as men. Away from this excitement, Christmas passed with all the usual trappings, as can be seen from the advertisements opposite. The local churches were full and even the paupers in Winchcombe's workhouse in Langley Road enjoyed some cheer. Fifty seven, mostly elderly, inmates drawn from the villages in the Directory's circulation area enjoyed such luxuries as tea and sugar, dates and nuts, sweets and crackers, all provided by local worthies. They even had a Christmas tree - but had to wait until 30 December. A tree with only one previous owner was good enough for the paupers! - David Aldred

David Aldred is well-known through his writing and lecturing on historical subjects. He has written several books on the area, including A History of Bishop’s Cleeve and Woodmancote and The History of Cleeve Hill. He lives in Gotherington. His books can be bought in all local book stores and also online at www.amberleybooks.com or www.amazon.co.uk

“Zumba with Sue & Kirsty” are very pleased to be the first in the area to introduce the newest Fitness experience – FITSTEPS. Created and designed in 2013 by the “Strictly Come Dancing” stars, Ian Waite & Natalie Lowe from a dance prospective and Swimming Champion Mark Foster, who knows everything there is to know about fitness. FITSTEPS takes the graceful steps of Ballroom and up tempo steps of Latin, mixed with the latest, proven ways to get fit fast, creating a really fun, energetic and effective way to stay fit. FITSTEPS is based around twelve of the most popular Latin and Ballroom dances. It’s a fun, easy to learn dance/fitness class – you don’t need to be able to dance and you don’t need a partner.

“FitSteps is a new form of exercise dance class. It’s all dance moves – steps you would learn in a ballroom class. You could take what you learn from FitSteps straight through to a ballroom class and you’d already know the steps.” Ian Waite

Quickstep, Jive, Paso Doble, Charleston and you’ll have done a warm up and a cool down.” Natalie Lowe Be one of the first people in the country to try it, you’ll be glad you did and in the words of Craig Revel Horwood “loved it darling”! So if you have always wanted to have a go at the fabulous dances you see on “Strictly”, then dance yourself down to one of our classes. “Zumba with Sue & Kirsty” are already at the forefront of fitness offering Zumba classes in and around the Tewkesbury/Upton/Bredon area and have an excellent reputation for quality of classes at an affordable price. They offer everything Zumba, including Zumba Toning, Zumba Gold, Zumba Sentao, Zumba Core/ Glutes and ZumbAtomic (for the children). For class timetables and further information please visit www.zumbawithsueandkirsty.co.uk or call Sue on 07708 381310 or Kirsty on 07885 545592 and on facebook and via email sue.zumba@btinternet.com.

Over 14 million of us watch “Strictly Come Dancing” every year and we all dream of dancing like Natalie Lowe or Ian Waite so the chance to hit the dance floor, learn proper dance steps plus get fit and make friends has to be a great idea.

“It’s not overly energetic to the point where you’re out of breath – it’s more of a slow burner. We’re teaching technique, the basic Waltz, the basic Cha Cha rhythm so at the end of a 45 minute class you’ll have learned Waltz, Cha Cha, Page 8

Give Your Carpet

A FACELIFT

Matt Grimshaw Carpentry

Bredon based Imperial Carpets have 20 years experience in offering domestic and commercial carpet and upholstery cleaning. Julian Woods explains how the process works.

Your Local Carpenter / Kitchen Fitting Specialist Do I need to prepare at all? We will move all larger furnishings such as chairs and tables but for insurance reasons we ask you to move smaller, valuable items such as ornaments before we arrive. Can you get rid of stains? Yes, we will pre-spot your carpet for all difficult stains and carry out specialist stain removal techniques on marks which are of particular  worry.

pollens. The machine then produces a huge vacuum volume to draw the dirt and chemicals out. We finish with a residue free rinse that ensures the integrity of your carpet and helps to protect against soiling. When can I use the room? Our special carpet dryers will rapidly dry your carpets so you use them much quicker than normal - usually in about two hours. Your furniture will be replaced back onto your carpet with protective foil tabs and Styrofoam blocks placed under the legs to prevent varnish leaching into the damp carpet. How will my carpet look after it has been cleaned? Where appropriate, we will groom your carpet to leave it in the best possible condition. This means running a carpet rake over it to ensure the fibres are tangle-free and as "fluffy" as possible. With 20 years local experience you can be assured of an excellent result and a high standard of service.

Sneaky Ways To Save By Jasmine Birtles moneymagpie.com Let’s face it, saving money is hard, but it doesn’t have to be a chore. Here are a few ways to save money without even realising it.

Pay yourself first

Set up a standing order from your current account to a savings account on the day after your wages are paid. That way it’s like you never had the money in the first place, so now it’s tucked away earning interest in your savings account and you won’t miss it.

Get cash back

If you use a cashback credit card or do your shopping through cashback websites, make sure that you put it straight in your savings account. The best cashback credit card at the moment is the American Express Platinum Cashback card (bear in mind, you need a decent credit rating to be given this card). When it comes to the best cashback sites, try ECashback for instant rewards of up to 35%.

Spend one pay rise behind If you are fortunate enough to receive a pay rise, you might be tempted to increase your spending. Don’t. Instead, try and stick to the smaller budget you’re used to, and put the extra pay into your savings account. In fact, change your monthly standing order. Page 22

Set up a bad habits box

It could be a swear box or a chocolate, fast food or crisps box. Whatever your secret, or not so secret, naughtiness is, fine yourself something when you indulge. Come up with an amount that suits you – 10p or £1 – and stick it in the bad habits box. Putting the money in the box each time you succumb will help you kick the habit so you can save money and help yourself lose weight at the same time.

Fun Fact The average UK coin jar contains £38.35, whilst 9% of the nation’s coin jars hold £100. Start your own in-house Laundromat

Put a jar next to your washing machine (and dryer if you have one) and ‘charge’ yourself every time you use it. Again, it’s up to you how much you charge but after a few months you should have a decent amount to pour into your savings account.

Travel smart

If you drive or take public transport to work, that costs money. Find a cheaper - or free - alternative and then you can put the savings away. If you have to take the train

try to get cash back on your journeys. TrainDelays (www. traindelays.co.uk ) is a website that does all the leg work for you and completes the claims process so all you have to do is register with your journey details for free.

Be the agent for your friends

Be the one to book group holidays – you could be given a discount or even a whole holiday for free for yourself. If you go out for a meal with your friends regularly, book it. If you use a site like Toptable. com you’ll receive better deals at fantastic restaurants anyway, and you earn points every time you book. Plus if you have a car, join up to car-sharing websites like Liftshare or National Carshare or just arrange to give friends lifts. Once again, any money they give you for petrol should go straight into your savings pot.

Keep an eye on coins

Spare change can be annoying especially if coins are rattling around in the bottom of your bag or worse, the washing machine - but they do all add up. Pull all the cushions from the sofa; check in pots in the back of cupboards, on shelves and under the bed and who knows how much you could discover.

How To Choose A New Camera More megapixels don’t always mean it’s worth more money

Stand-alone cameras have taken something of a battering in recent years, with smartphone manufacturers cramming ever more megapixels into their models. But even cutting-edge phones such as the iPhone 5s are limited in what they can do: there’s only so much room for a lens and sensor in a case that’s already packed with electronics - and of course they’re expensive too. Many stand-alone cameras can take much better pictures and shoot much better video, often for considerably less cash than even the cheapest cameratoting smartphones. There are five types of cameras to consider: compacts, which are pocket- and budget-friendly models that cost from less than £100 to around £200; superzooms, which have a clever lens capable of really impressive zoom levels and cost £250 to £350; compact system cameras, which have swappable lenses but which aren’t as big as digital SLR cameras and which start at around £400; and digital SLRs, which tend to be the biggest and most powerful models around and can cost anything from £300 to several thousand pounds. The fifth category is Page 26

stand-alone video cameras, which range from £100ish to over £1,000: many digital cameras do video too, but it isn’t their primary focus. No pun intended. No matter what kind of camera you’re looking at, you’ll see the same numbers again and again: the camera’s megapixels, the lens size, and the lens aperture range. You might think that the camera with the most megapixels is going to be the best, but that isn’t always the case: once you go beyond around 6 megapixels you won’t notice the difference on a TV screen or in a photo print, although the more megapixels you have the bigger the resulting images will be and the more hard disk space you’ll need to store them. The figure isn’t meaningless, but it isn’t the most important consideration. Aperture, which is expressed like this - “f/1.8” - matters more. The aperture tells you how much light the lens lets in, and the lower it is the better the camera will be in lower light such as when you’re taking shots in the evening or indoors. Some cameras can also compensate for low light problems with clever computer processing, such as Sony’s BIONZ system.

As you might expect, the Zoom numbers tell you how well the zoom lens works. On compact cameras that’s usually expressed as a multiple, such as 2x or 10x; a 10x zoom will be five times more powerful than a 2x one. Pay no attention to any “digital zoom” figures, because they’re rubbish: a digital zoom tries to copy an optical zoom lens by guessing what the image would look like, and the results can be pretty poor. On compact system cameras and digital SLRs the zoom is more likely to be expressed in millimetres, so for example an 18-55mm lens will do nice wide angle shots but can’t zoom in too far, whereas an 18-105mm lens will zoom much further (and cost a lot more). Video cameras add another set of numbers to think about: the resolution and the frame rate. If you want to record true, futureproof high definition video for playback on UK TVs you’ll need a camera that records at 1080p in the European PAL format, which has a frame rate of 24 frames per second. And remember to check that the camera’s chosen video recording format - such as MP4, AVCHD - is supported by your computer’s video editing software.

Tying the Knot

The Wife’s Tale, Lori Lansens It’s fair to say that fortysomething Mary Gooch is a comfort eater. She’s eaten her way through heartbreak and, on the eve of her 25th wedding anniversary, it looks like she’s going straight for the cookie dough once again. When she receives a note from Jim to say he’s come into some money and is off to find what he wants, that’s when Mary Gooch becomes motivated. She sets off cross country to find her wayward husband, but more importantly, to recover what remains of the girl who’s buried within those acres of rolling flesh. You will love Mary Gooch and you will never want to leave her. The Poisonwood Bible, Barbara Kingsolver The wife and daughters of evangelical Baptist Nathan Price tell the story of how the family is uprooted and moved from America, deep into the Belgian Congo at the end of the 1950s. This is not just the unravelling of a marriage but of a family and though it might sound all doom and gloom, it’s also a bit of a comedy of errors as they struggle to cope with life in Africa. Page 28

It’s widely reported that divorce rates sky-rocket in January, with more people citing irreconcilable differences in the first four weeks of the year than at any other time. We’ve put together some funny, tragic and heart-warming tales that focus on matrimony: how to get into a marriage, how to get out of one, or even, controversially, how to stay in one.

The Kitchen God’s Wife, Amy Tan Pearl Louie Brandt has a secret she wants to keep from her mother, Winnie. But Winnie has secrets of her own and to retell her story we must travel back to Shanghai in the 1920s, unravelling the story of how Winnie came to live in America. The Kitchen God’s Wife is called ‘Lady Sorrowfree’, who has endured many things without credit or praise, but who remains strong. Here lies the message for all the generations of the family; how we live our lives and how we build our relationships affects those around us.

The Mayor of Casterbridge, Thomas Hardy Nothing will end a marriage faster than getting drunk on rum and selling your wife. In fact, why not throw in your daughter too, for the fair price of five guineas. The trouble with wives, unless you’re a widower, is the fact that they then come back to find you some years later, and their presence threatens to sully the good name you’ve built up in their absence. Michael Henchard, hay trusser, has become the Mayor of Casterbridge, and gone teetotal in the process. Can Henchard escape the mistakes made in youth?

On Chesil Beach, Ian McEwan It’s 1962 and newlyweds Edward and Florence are honeymooning at Chesil Beach in Dorset. They reflect on their differing backgrounds and upbringing and reveal insecurities, repression and regret ahead of their ill-fated wedding night. It’s so painfully English in a stiff-upper-lip kind of way and beautifully and tragically portrays this doomed couple at the beginning of their married life.

Gone Girl, Gillian Flynn They say there are two sides to every story but we begin with a single narrator, Nick Dunne and his version of events after his wife suddenly disappears. The fact that his beautiful wife Amy vanishes on their fifth wedding anniversary is even more poetic. And then the questions begin. Can Nick Dunne’s version of events be trusted? Was his wife afraid of him? This is a clever thriller that not only asks ‘whodunit?’ but also, ‘who done what?’

Life Begins Reclaim your living space for 2014

We all love the festive season, but it can’t be denied that Christmas celebrations are a magnet for mess and clutter. For a short period of time our living space seems to shrink under the sheer volume of seasonal items, including gifts (yours and theirs), food and drink, countless decorations – and of course, that huge pile of washing up that never seems to diminish from morning to night. No wonder, then, that at New Year we take a certain pleasure in clearing out the festive junk we have accumulated in order to restore some domestic equilibrium. But why stop there? Traditionally the beginning of the year is a period when we want to embrace change, eliminating what has become outworn and unnecessary, so it makes sense to tap into that New Year energy by using the first weeks of January to reclaim your living space. The psychological benefits are obvious: most of us feel better, calmer and more able to deal

by Kate McLelland

with daily stress when our home environment is well ordered, so why does it always seem so difficult to make a start when clearing out the things we no longer need? If it’s been a while since you sorted through your stuff, then contemplating a proper clearout may seem like a terrifying prospect. Here’s an easy, step-by-step guide to getting the job done: 1. One step at a time. Don’t allow yourself to be overwhelmed by the prospect of reorganising your home; give yourself a set of different tasks and don’t start the next task until the last one is complete. For example, Task 1 could involve going through your kitchen cupboards, throwing away everything that’s past its sell-by date, Task 2 could be a thorough clear-out of your clothes drawers and wardrobes while Task 3 might call for a purge on your home filing system. Make a list and tick off the items one by one to give yourself a real sense of

achievement. 2. Use the ‘three pile’ system. One pile to keep, one pile to donate or give to friends, one pile to throw away. If some of the items in your ‘keep’ pile have previously been hanging around, gathering dust, this is the ideal time to buy some attractive boxes or baskets that will keep them all out of sight. 3. Make an audit of potential storage areas in your house. Are there any alcoves that could be filled with shelves? Is your loft being used to its full capacity? Do you have an under-used garden shed? 4. Cultivate a minimalist style. If your rooms are full of pictures and ornaments it becomes hard to appreciate the merits of any single object, so identify a few items that you really cherish and make sure they are properly displayed. If you love all your decorative pieces equally, you can always rotate them throughout the year. If you don’t want to put up shelves or buy more storage options, sometimes it’s just a matter of rethinking the way your house is organised. Moving a large item of furniture just a few inches can sometimes give a much more spacious feel to a room, so be creative and experiment. However you choose to reclaim your space, you’ll have a whole year to enjoy the results.

Fruit Planting The garden may be quieter than usual at this time of year, and certainly not likely to be yielding vast quantities of crops, but this near dormant time is perfect for planting fruit. by Pippa Greenwood You can grow fruit trees in surprisingly small spaces, training them to espaliers (so that they have several sets of horizontal arms), cordons (as single main stems grown at an angle), fans (with their branches trained in to a fan shape) or as step-overs, (trained so that they make a neat edging for a bed or border about 45cm or so above ground level). You could also use a fruit tree to create a decorative and later a wonderfully productive arch. At this time of year fruit trees are great value because they are sold ‘bare root’, lifted from a field and not container grown. I find these establish particularly well and because you usually obtain them from a specialist supplier or nursery, the range of varieties available is second to none. You can either buy one year old ‘maidens’ and train these yourself, or if you want to save time, you can often buy trained or part trained forms. When you are choosing fruit trees it’s essential to get them on the right rootstock as this determines the ultimate size and vigour of the tree. Apples are particularly complicated, but as a rule, for step-overs, Page 34

cordons, dwarf bushes and trees in containers try the extremely dwarfing but somewhat tricky M27 - but beware weak varieties or any tree grown on this rootstock in a poor soil as it may well fail. For bush, cordon, espaliers and half-standard try the easier to look after dwarfing rootstock M26 and for a cordon or espalier on a poor soil, for arches and for bush trees try the semi-dwarfing MM106. You will need to choose the varieties you grow so that they can pollinate each other (if there is no suitable pollinator in the vicinity you will not get fruit) and on the basis of the taste and texture of the fruit and how well it stores and so forth. If you have space, it is good to grow apples for cooking as well as eating, or look out for those described as ‘dual purpose’, meaning they make very passable cookers as well as dessert apples. As well as tree fruits such as apples, pears and maybe even a medlar or a plum or gorgeous gage, you could also consider some delicious bush fruits. The great thing

about these is that they take up even less space and again can often be trained into wacky shapes such as fan-trained or standard bushes, making them all the more ornamental and easier to fit into the smaller garden. Then there are raspberries - on my rather heavy and very alkaline soil I tend to stick to the autumn fruiting varieties such as Autumn Bliss and Joan J, but on freer draining and acidic soils you can try some of the more numerous summer fruiters too. Bare root fruit trees, bushes and canes are generally available from about November through until early March, depending on the weather, so don’t delay, start ordering or better still, planting, today.

Please call David on

01242 663927 / 0777 6172 761 HIDATO Starting at 1 and finishing at 34, track your way from one hexagon to another (touching) hexagon, placing consecutive numbers into the empty shapes as you go. Some numbers are already given.

Ingredients: • 100g ground hazelnuts • 70g almond flour • 350g plain flour • 3 tablespoons cocoa powder • 2 teaspoons cinnamon • 2 teaspoons nutmeg • 1 teaspoon mixed spice • 3 teaspoons ground ginger • � teaspoon salt • � teaspoon baking powder • � teaspoon baking soda • 150g dark brown sugar • 225ml clear honey • 50g butter • 3 medium sized eggs • 200g glacé cherries • 300g dark cooking chocolate

Tip These can be kept uncoated for up to a month in an airtight container, so are ideal to make ahead of the festive rush, to be dipped in chocolate later on.

1. Preheat the oven to 170 degrees. Prepare all dry ingredients and sift together in a large bowl until combined. 2. In a separate bowl, combine honey, sugar and butter, and beat with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Add one egg at a time to the mixture and beat until well mixed. 3. Gently fold in the sugar mixture into the dry ingredients. The mixture will be sticky and dense. 4. Add glacé cherries into the lebkuchen mixture until evenly distributed. 5. Prepare a large tray with greaseproof paper. Place heaped teaspoon sized portions across the tray, with plenty of space around them. 6. Bake for 10-12 minutes. The biscuits will rise and be firm to touch, with a little softness to pressure. Remove and allow to cool overnight. 7. Once cooled, you can now dip them in chocolate. Prepare the chocolate coating by crumbling 300g of dark chocolate in a large bowl, over hot water. Stir until the chocolate is evenly melted, and of a smooth, glossy consistency. 8. Dip each biscuit into the chocolate mixture. You can either dip the front surface only, coat half a biscuit, or submerge the entire thing! (You may need more chocolate to do this for the entire batch.) 9. Place dipped biscuits on a tray and allow to cool and harden. 10. Store in an airtight container.

Around Britain 5 Olympic Connections 1. Chipping Campden, Gloucestershire - Every spring, Chipping Campden plays host to the Cotswold Olympicks, an annual festival of sports and games established in the 1600s. Like the modern Games, these Olympicks were devised along the lines of those of Ancient Greece, but featured disciplines like shin-kicking contests, stick-fighting and ‘spurning the barre’, a game similar to tossing the caber. 2. London - In 2012, London became the first city in the world to host the Summer Olympics three times, following the 1908 Games (when the eruption of Mount Vesuvius forced Rome, the original host city, to pull out) and the 1948 Games (which compensated for the cancellation of London’s 1944 Games due to the Second World War). 3. Much Wenlock, Shropshire - The ‘Wenlock Olympian Games’ have been held in Much Wenlock since 1850, devised by William Penny Brookes to promote ‘the moral, physical and intellectual improvement’ of the townspeople by awarding ‘prizes ... at public meetings for skill in athletic exercise’. The success of these Games eventually inspired the founding of the International Olympic Committee. 4. Stoke Mandeville, Buckinghamshire - The first ever Stoke Mandeville Games, a series of multidiscipline sporting events for athletes with a disability, were held in 1948. Also known as the World Wheelchair & Amputee Games, these games are considered the precursor of the Paralympics – in 1984, the Paralympics were jointly awarded to Stoke Mandeville and New York. 5. Isle of Man - Unlike in the Olympics, in the Commonwealth Games all individual constituent countries of the UK are permitted to enter, as well as all British dependencies and territories. Of all of these, the Isle of Man is by far the most successful having garnered eight medals (including three gold) since the 1950s.
