Out & About RSPB Fowlmere

reedy margins. Fowlmere is also a great place to spot dragonflies, with up to seventeen species seen here, while grass snakes are sometimes seen in the pools or beside the trails.

RSPB Fowlmere is a small nature reserve with reedbeds and pools, forming a refreshing natural oasis in the agricultural landscape of south Cambridgeshire. Formed of once extensive watercress beds, the site is now a haven for wetland and woodland wildlife. The River Shep, a natural chalk stream runs through the reserve and brown trout can often be spotted in the clear waters, while water voles, and very occasionally, otters are seen. The increasingly scarce turtle dove is a summer visitor and Fowlmere is one of the most reliable locations in Cambridgeshire to hear the soft purring of its call. Barn owls breed here in special nest boxes and can often be seen roosting outside their box near the reedbed hide, at times even during the daytime. A trail which has boardwalks in several area loops through the reserve, giving access to the three hides, including the raised reedbed hide, which gives excellent views over the mere and reedbeds. Water rails, kingfishers and various ducks use the mere, while hobbyies and marsh harriers can be seen in the summer. Wading birds such as lapwing, redshank, common and green sandpipers and sometimes scarcer birds such as wood sandpiper, jack snipe and common snipe pop in to feed and rest on the mere’s muddy,

In autumn and winter, large flocks of thrushes from Scandinavia arrive and forage on the berry bushes. Merlins, our smallest bird of prey can sometimes spend time on the reserve in winter, and zoom over the fen or adjacent fields in search of prey at this time of year. Reserve warden Beth Aucott manages a team of dedicated volunteers, managing the habitat, clearing trails and scrub and keeping the site in top shape for both nature and people. If you haven’t visited before, come along and explore and discover this wonderful RSPB reserve soon!

Fowlmere reserve is open every day of the week and friendly and informative volunteers are on duty in the reception hut most weekends. A new hut, funded from a collection by his wife in memory of the late Dr Paul Walsh, is installed and will soon replace the old hut that has been on site since over twenty years ago (and it was second hand then!) A new car park machine has been installed this summer and entry is included in the carparking fee - £2 a car for non-members. Dogs and cycles are not permitted on the reserve. The reserve was originally bought by the RSPB Young Ornithologists Group (now the Wildlife Explorers) in 1977. An active Wildlife Explorers group, The Fowlmere Bullfinches, meet here once a month, for children to discover nature with an enthusiastic team. Contact 01279 777833 for more info.

Spotlight On... Royston Arts Society Celebrates 40 years This year, the Royston Arts Society (RAS) is celebrating its 0th anniversary by nurturing the next generation of artists! The Young Artists Awards were held for the first time this year, offering artists from 16-26 years old in SG8 a chance to win one of six fabulous prizes. The quality of art submitted was exceedingly high. So who won? Kate Bieriezjanczuk’s “At Dawnâ€? (pictured on The Listing Royston cover) won the Curwens Solicitors Young Artist of the Year Award - ÂŁ100 + a solo exhibition in January 2019. Look out for it! Megan Wilson’s “Red Pandaâ€? (on The Listing Villages cover) won the Rotary Club of Royston’s Art Inspiration Award and a one year Tate Membership for her + guest. Chloe Alcock’s “Unpleasant Discoveriesâ€? won the Art Supplies Award, a ÂŁ100 art hamper from Great Art, and Creative Royston’s ÂŁ50 prize for the best ‘Voyages of Discovery’ themed painting.

ART IN SANDON

Local budding artists are continuing their weekly dropin sessions in the refurbished Sandon Village Hall.

exhibitions. On its 40th anniversary, the RAS is looking after the future of local art. Hosting Creative Royston’s Cover Art auction and awarding the winners of the Young Artist Awards on Preview Night are only some of the things the RAS does to maintain Royston’s thriving art scene.

The winning artworks were on show at the annual RAS Autumn Exhibition. This is the largest, most diverse art exhibition in Royston’s creative calendar, showcasing art in various mediums, skills and themes. In the beginning this non-profit membership organisation, founded in 1979, met once a week for painting classes in Sylvia Jordan’s dining room. Things really started in 1978 though, when Edwin (Gary) Grimaldi retired and moved to Royston, only to discover there was no local art scene. Using his art exhibition experience, Gary advertised for like-minded people to help him set up Royston’s first local exhibition.

If you’d like to be a part of the Royston Arts Society, and help them nurture creativity in yourself or others please contact: enquiries@roystonarts.org.uk or visit our website: www.roystonarts.org.uk

Today, the RAS has a membership of roughly 100, hosts nine art demonstrations every year, two painting sessions per month, an ongoing mini-exhibition at Royston Library, and two larger annual

Glazed Creations is Five!

Business Profile

Five years ago Pip and Christina sat painting together at a kitchen table fantasising about leaving veterinary careers and starting a pottery painting studio in Royston, a business plan cemented their resolve to bring a bit of creativity to Royston, 2 weeks later a course at a ceramic supply company confirmed projections should lead to a solvent business and 8 weeks later Glazed Creations opened. We were nervous about what the future would bring but excited for the new adventure.

The studio has given us so much more than we could have dreamed of. We have met many wonderful people, have seen children grow up from babies to starting school, children who had birthday parties here turn into teenagers coming in to paint for

a bit of quiet time whilst revising for their GCSEs, raised money for charities, had our eyes opened to the power of creativity as people battle against mental illness, and been involved in many community events. We like to think that we not only provide a fun way to pass a few hours, but also a chance to focus on being together … or alone! We are now starting to look forward to helping make many treasured gifts for Christmas – from tiny baby handprints, to enchanting children’s artwork and stunning adult creations, each year we love seeing the smiles as pieces are collected and hearing how gifts were appreciated when opened. Thank you to all of our special customers that have brightened our days, shared ideas and helped make our little studio the place it is.

Therfield School Set in the idyllic village of Therfield. we teach approximately  children across three classrooms. Our class sizes are small, with high adult/child ratios. Our talented teachers plan exciting lessons to deliver our creative curriculum. Our children are at the heart of everything that we do and we pride ourselves on our kind, nurturing environment. We spend as much time learning

outside, including weekly forest schooling. We have a strong community presence and lead a range of community projects to share our Gift of Giving. Lots of people think that the school must only serve the village of Therfield. But in fact at least half of our children live in Royston and surrounding villages. Did you know that we have limited spaces available in some year groups? Why not come and have a look at one of Royston’s best kept secrets?

Royston’s original Indian restaurant, the British Raj, has re-launched as an exclusive takeaway opposite Royston Railway Station. The restaurant was first opened in 1976 by my late Uncle Nazir Choudhury, through hard work & determination, he made this humble Royston eatery one of national acclaim – classed amongst the best Indo-Bangladeshi restaurants in Britain. Years of charitable work both for Royston & Bangladesh, visits from famous ‘Miss Anglia’ winners and outstanding reviews from top food critics left an incredible legacy. There has always been a yearning within our family to revive the Raj and it is an honour to bring back to Royston an unparalleled level of the very best Indian cuisine. Together with our award-winning head chef Mohibur Choudhury, we have crafted a creative menu with many familiar dishes and some unusual curry dishes which originate from the British Raj era of India – such as Railway Lamb Curry & Anardana Chicken. To introduce these unusual flavours, we will be hosting several tasting events in partnership with our friends from Cambridge Wine Royston at their newly refurbished Royston Gin Palace. The inaugural event was a success, diners enjoyed each unique course, expertly paired with a wine or gin & tonic. Our next event is to be held on Wednesday, 24th October. We would also like to announce during National Curry Week, we will be donating £1 from every takeaway to Royston Poppy Appeal. My team at British Raj Express invite you to experience our outstanding takeaway, with convenience of our own customer car park. We also offer a home delivery service covering Royston & villages.

I look forward to warmly welcoming you back!

Hadham Brewery Hadham Brewing Company was established in 201 in Little Hadham. William Compton, with over twenty years brewing experience, came on board as brewer in 2016. Hadham Brewery is a ten barrel brewery, brewing just under 3,000 pints per brew.

Business Profile

Two beers are brewed: ‘First’ - a .0% amber-brown coloured bitter. It has a fruity, bitter-sweet body, and an aroma which is slightly spicy, with marmalade and caramel notes. ‘Gold’ is a shiny gold 3.7% ale which has a light bitter, hoppy citrus character, and pleasant floral aroma. The Icknield Way is one of the oldest highways in Britain, following the direction of a single soil type to which it lends its name – the Icknield Series. This band of land running from Lincolnshire to Dorset grows the very best malting barley in the world.

We use Icknield grown Maris Otter barley, carefully malted by hand at Warminster Maltings, Britain’s oldest working maltings, and pure spring water drawn from our own borehole. With the fantastic soil and climate in this part of England, the provenance of our spring water and raw materials, together with our brewing style, we have true brewing terroir here in the Hadhams. Quality water, malt and hops, expertly combined into wonderful ales and with exceptional customer service - we are building a tradition of our own, here in Little Hadham.

My Local Life Lyndsey Woods

day is when I know I have done my job well. What can be better than spending your days with dogs, cats, rabbits, guinea pigs and even chickens?!!

Lyndsey Woods is the owner of LW Petcare, a company that offers friendly and professional dog walking, pet transportation and pet minding services, covering Royston and surrounding villages.

What is your favourite way to spend a Sunday? I often work on Sundays but I usually get a chance to watch my ten year old son play rugby. He plays for Royston Rugby club and I really enjoy watching him train or play matches. The rugby crowd are a nice bunch of people and the breakfast and coffee at the Heath is excellent, so even in the rain it makes it all worthwhile.

Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s your name? Lyndsey Woods Where do you live? Royston What is your favourite local shop? Dhesi store on Icknield Walk - for a small local shop they seem to have everything, its like Aladdinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Cave in that place and Steve and his staff are so friendly and helpful.

Most memorable Royston experience? Sledging on the heath in the snow everyone seems to come together in the snow and enjoy the hills of Royston.

What makes you happy?

For me it has to be that doing a job you love is more important than one of real financial gain. Material things have no real value, happiness does :-)

What do you love about your work?

Four people you would invite to dinner?

Literally everything! I have never been so passionate about a job, working with animals full time is something I have always wanted to do. Taking tired dogs home knowing they have had a brilliant

What are you looking forward to most this October?

What has been the most valuable life lesson that you have learnt?

Apart from Pinot Grigio?!....Sunshine, music, animals and my family and friends. Being outside generally makes me happy - being out with dogs and watching them play makes me very happy.

Think Garden, Think Richard Garden Focus... Garden Styles selection Melbourn garden designer, Richard Arnott To continue my series of articles for 2018, Designing with Plants, I am going to look at working with what you’ve got when starting to develop your garden. It can be useful when moving to a new home to live with the garden for a year and observe what plants you get through the seasons. It is always a shame to throw plants away. Here are few things to think about: Existing boundary planting always needs looking at when you move to a new garden. We have a strong obsession with where our boundaries start and finish in this country and privacy from our neighbours. However there is no need for our boundaries to be lined with rows of conifers because we lack the imagination. Have a good look at what you have and whether it works. A pretty fence with climbing roses mixed with clematis can be very effective. Or for a striking more contemporary look, pleached trees can look great. Equally you may have a neglected

collection of shrubs that provide good screening but require some regenerative pruning to regain control of their width and height. I love to use a mixture of evergreen and deciduous native shrubs that provide interest and encourage wildlife. Things such as Viburnum opulus, Euonymus europaeus and prunus spinosus to name just a few. So often I see the domineering leylandii hedge that is too tall and too wide. They are easy to plant and easy to neglect! Managed properly they are effective although never high on my list. If you really want a conifer why not try Thuja plicata, it is slower growing and produce a much finer hedge with pineapple scented foliage. Specimen plants within the garden should always be treasured. I often see cork screw hazels lost amongst a mixture of larger more vigorous shrubs. Bad pruning and wrong companion planting means that the impact of this specimen becomes lost. Specimen planting can also take the form of a focal point tree or shrub with architectural foliage or good autumn colour. When looking at a new garden design project for the first time I am always assessing the existing planting for so called “garden worthy plants!” I remember designing a garden in Cambridge around a particularly old specimen Cotoneaster lacteus and despite this being very restrictive for the design it made the most of a lovely specimen plant. Salvageable planting is always on my radar too when I am assessing a new design. If there is an opportunity to salvage plants that

fit the style of the new garden design then take it. A good way is to dig a holding bed and move salvageable perennials and smaller shrubs into shallow trenches and heel them in ready for reusing. This is best carried out in the dormant season. Most hardy perennials, grasses, bulbs, and smaller shrubs will happily move. It is also a great opportunity to divide larger perennial clumps to produce more plants! Plants in the wrong place offer another great opportunity for the keen eyed gardener. Look out too for shade lovers planted in the sunshine. They maybe just about tolerating life in the sun but are they really thriving? The classic example of this is the sunny herbaceous mixed plant border that may have started out life with all the best intentions but as the shrubs grow and shade out the perennials they will struggle to gain the light and water they need to thrive. Borrowed views are very often over looked if you excuse the pun! Specimen trees such as a copper beech in a neighbour’s garden can still be admired and appreciated from your side too. Consider also views of the wider landscape beyond your own. For more in depth plant advice or garden design help please get in touch

Halloween makeup guide Halloween is a fun time of year for those of us who love to play dress up. Last year I decided to go for a simple Halloween costume and makeup. The makeup was so simple to do that you can put it together in a matter of minutes.

colour closer to the outer crease then lighter as I came out. I then applied a gold flake glitter to the inner corner.

All you need is some eyeshadow with red, pinks or purples and a darker lipliner, ideally a deep purple.

If you want to challenge yourself further try adding a scar through the eye. This may look daunting but I promise you it’s not! All I used was ripped tissue, cotton wool and eyelash glue. Using the eyelash glue I stuck the tissue and cotton wool in a line across my eye. Once dry I used a small eyeshadow brush with some brown and red around the edges.

First I took a red and brushed it under my eye starting with darker colour closer to the bottom of my eye and getting lighter as I went down. I found trial and error with colours was needed. Then I took the lip liner and created veins around my eye. After I used a glitter shadow and outlined the veins. For the top of my eye I did the same with a darker

Business Harvest I think autumn is a fantastic time of year – but not everyone agrees: ‘Next bank holiday is Christmas day…’ ‘The weather’s just going to get colder and wetter from now on…’

If you want to be pessimistic, that’s fine, but it doesn’t do for me. Because I trained as a farm manager back in nineteen hundred and frozen to death, I see this time of year as the start of something new and exciting. As I drive to work, I see potatoes and onions are being lifted and the sugar beet won’t be long after that and now next year’s crops are being sown We used to say that a farmer’s income was dictated by the quality of his land, influenced by the vagaries of the weather – and he can’t change either of them! The bit we missed out was the farmer’s skill, and how well he negotiated the sale of his produce.

With the farmer, once the seed is in the ground, the maximum yield potential has been set – his role from that point is to prevent external influences from reducing it too far: pests, diseases and so on. Other industries are luckier. Similarly, our profits are governed by the quality of our staff and raw materials and the quality of our management. But we also we have the chance to change things during the whole year – we can train our staff, develop our products, build on the relationship with our customers and improve our marketing. So yes, of course you should do the best with what you’ve got, but if we want to really achieve something, you must strive for continuous improvement and grasp every opportunity that comes your way. julian@julianberry.co.uk
