NOVEMBER 2018


The Wow Factor! With the popularity of open plan living, kitchens have become the hub and main living area of the house. Kitchen worktops have become crucial as they are the focal point of this living area. With new stone, quartz, timber or solid surface worktops fitted onto existing kitchen cabinets or into a new kitchen, you can give even the most modest kitchen a true Wow factor. From the moment you decide you are going to change or replace your kitchen you should start to consider what type of worksurface you want. Roktops Worksurfaces have recently opened a new samples area. We believe this is the most extensive range of worktop samples in the South of England. To help you decide what surface is best for your way of living, we have compiled a brief description of the most popular types of worktops ... a comprehensive list is available on www.roktops.co.uk go to "About", then "Worktop Guide". Solid Timber Probably the least expensive way of adding quality and style to a kitchen. The timber will need regular maintenance and is prone to staining especially in the wet areas around a sink. It has gained popularity most recently with many kitchen designers on areas such as islands and peninsular to soften the look of the kitchen and add a warm texture to the design. Granite Granite has come and gone as the most popular worksurface. A few years ago it was the most popular material after Laminate. Natural granite an be incredibly beautiful with many colours and styles, but it does come with its own list of problems. It’s porous, fragile and is inconsistent from one piece of stone to another (even when slabs are cut from the same block) though this natural variation is appealling to some. The lighter colours show lemon and red wine stains. Some

household chemicals have a detrimental effect on the surface. Granite cannot be burnt but we have seen many occasions where hot pans have burnt the chemicals used to seal the granite. Quartz Quartz is by far the most popular worksurface on the market at this present time. Quartz offers style, variety, strength and practicality. There are many manufacturers and types of quartz surfaces which means there is a product that will suit most budgets. It is non-porous easy to maintain and resistant to chipping and scratching. Most household cleaners can be used and there is little maintenance required. Solid Surfaces Most people call this Corian as it is the name synonymous to all types of solid surface. DuPont created this product over 50 years ago and called the material Corian, it is by far the most versatile material of all surfaces that are available. Solid surface allows for inconspicuous seamless joints, moulded in sinks, moulded in upstands, curves, thermos- forming shapes, extra wide or long islands and it is infinitely repairable. The joints are inconspicuous and seamless making it difficult at a glance to see where the joins are in the surface. Most household cleaners can be used and Corian sinks can be cleaned easily with bleach. For more details and advice please call 0118 976 2826 or visit our website www.roktops.co.uk

Roktops Worksurfaces is a local family run business dedicated to providing luxury worktops for residential properties. We are experts in fabricating CorianÂŽ, Granite, Marble, Quartz, Timber and Solid Surface material. "We love the new worktops, thank you very much for a great job!" Jason Wakefield, Berkshire

November in your garden by Gardeneer

N

ovember with its short days and cold winds mean that tender plants need protecting from frost, gales and freezing rains. They may need to be moved into the greenhouse or a sheltered spot and if this isn’t possible, try wrapping plants and/or pots. Alpines need to be protected from the wet. Large tubs that are at risk of cracking in the frost should be covered with bubble wrap, hessian or eece, to insulate them over the winter. Raise patio containers onto feet or bricks to avoid them sitting in the winter wet. Winter can also be hard on birds in terms of water and food, and keeping them fed and watered can only be a good thing. Do not feed plants this late in the season; plants tend not to grow in winder and any plant food may get washed away by winter rain. Apply an autumn mulch to protect plants that are borderline hardy such as Agapanthus, KniphoďŹ a and Phygelius as it helps to improve and maintain soil structure. Hellebores rarely ower naturally by Christmas, despite their common name of Christmas rose. They can be encouraged to ower a little earlier, if you want, by covering them with cloches, potting them up and bringing them into a warm greenhouse, or placing them on a windowsill inside the house. November can only mean one thing – we are not far o winter. The clocks have gone back, the nights are long and dark and spring seems like a long way o. However, it’s not all doom and gloom in the garden as there are several plants which give pleasure at this time of year: Prunus x subhirtella “Autumnalisâ€? is a small cherry tree ideally suited to little gardens, not only does it show lovely autumn colour but it owers from October to March

with sprays of delicate pink to creamy white. Then there’s Pittisporum tenuifolium “Tom Thumbâ€?, an evergreen from New Zealand Its leaves go a rich burgundy and will appear to go almost black – and the harder the weather, the more intense the colour: Dogwoods with their colourful stems; Cornus stolonifera “Flavirameaâ€? which has golden yellow stems; Cornus alba “Sibiricaâ€? which has blood red stems; and Cornus sanguinea “Midwinter Fireâ€? with a yellow base to the stem which changes to a ďŹ ery orange, ending with a red tip to the stem! JOBS FOR NOVEMBER m Clearing up leaves from lawns, beds and ponds; m To prevent waterlogged containers, raise them onto feet; m Plant tulip bulbs to ower next spring m Prune roses to prevent wind rock; m Plant out winter bedding m If pigeons are a problem, net brassicas; m Bubblewrap containers to insulate them from frost; m Lift dahlia tubers, begonias and gladiolus corms to store dry over the winter months. Remove the dead foliage before storing. m Before the birds eat them all, cut a few stems of holly with berries for making Christmas garlands.

Should I stay or should I go: move versus improve •

You may be surprised to hear UK homeowners are choosing to invest in their current property instead of moving, new research has shown. Specialist insurer Hiscox, has reported an impressive 400% increase in those deciding to improve rather than move in the past five years. Higher property prices, a lethargic market and uncertainty caused by Brexit have been cited as some of the biggest reasons for staying put.

Renovations may seem as the easier and more economical option compared to moving, but is this strictly true? In some cases it’s not with two in five projects being overspent by an average of 20% and 35% during the last five years.

Increase its value: whether it is a loft conversion, an open plan kitchen-diner or an extension, renovating your property not only gives you the freedom to inject your own personal style, it will also add to the overall value of the property when you do come to sell it later on You can take your time: unlike moving which works to a specific timescale, some renovation projects can give you the flexibility to work to your own schedule. You are able to improve your property incrementally to meet the needs of your growing family as well as control the flow of costs.

If you’re still unsure which option is right for you, consult the experts. You can do this by gathering a series of quotes from professionally approved tradesmen, by seeking advice from your local planning office and by approaching local estate agents. Obtain a list of all the properties, which match your home criteria, currently available on the market. By doing so, you can make a calculated and informed decision before you commit financially.

Both time-consuming and a hefty financial commitment, the decision to move or improve shouldn’t be taken lightly and it’s never been more important to arm yourself with the right information to ensure you make an informed decision.

If you are considering renovating and need to borrow additional funds or simply would like to discuss your mortgage opinions, please contact us and arrange an appointment.

Below is a list of key considerations you need to deliberate before taking your next step: The case for moving • Change of location: whether you’ve started a new job and want to lessen the commute, after a better school catchment area or want to live closer to your family, moving instead of renovating is easily the best option for you • Less destruction: packing, moving and then unpacking is an inconvenience; however, renovations (no matter how simple) can cause a lot of chaos and disruption to your daily routine for a prolonged period of time. For example, a paint job in the kitchen can take several days whereas an extension can take months • Renovating could overprice you out of the market: any work done to your property runs the risk of over-capitalising. This means even though the house itself offers a potential buyer more, it may be overpriced for the area in which it is located. If this is the case, it can be hard to sell in the future.

Wokingham branch: 19 Broad Street, Wokingham, RG40 1AU call: 0118 978 5945 or email: wokingham@newbury.co.uk. YOUR MORTGAGE IS SECURED ON YOUR HOME. THINK CAREFULLY BEFORE SECURING OTHER DEBTS AGAINST YOUR HOME. YOUR HOME MAY BE REPOSSESSED IF YOU DO NOT KEEP UP REPLAYMENTS ON YOUR MORTGAGE.

The case for renovating • Make the space work for you: from the very beginning you have complete creative control over the design of your home and how you want it. This means you can tailor the property to how it would best suit you and your family without needing to compromise (unless planning permission permits you too)

Community News Martyn Joseph in Concert An award-winning, guitar player with a powerful show-stopping voice, Martyn Joseph has been called “The Welsh Springsteen” – but he stands in his own right, built on a reputation as a mesmerising live performer. BBC Radio 2’s Bob Harris observed that “Martyn is one of our most intelligent writers. He gets better and better like the finest of wines.” He has toured in the USA, Canada and Europe with the likes of Art Garfunkel, Jools Holland, Ani DiFranco, Suzanne Vega, Mike and The Mechanics, Joan Armatrading, Celine Dion and Shirley Bassey. "One of the most charismatic and electrifying performers in Britain today ... tough and passionate” (Tom Robinson, BBC 6 Music) "One of acoustic music’s most original voices, and most forward looking of his generation of singer/songwriters” (Q Magazine) "Songs of social commentary as much as love, with a rootsy sensibility” (Time Out) Friday, November 30 at 7.30pm All Saints Church, Wiltshire Road, Wokingham. Tickets: www.wokinghamconcerts.co.uk

Wokingham Winter Carnival This year’s theme for the Wokingham Winter Carnival on Sunday 25 November is ‘Love Wokingham: A Winter Wonderland’ giving lots of scope for those wanting to dress up for the occasion. It’s a free event with fun for everyone – a variety of stalls, Santa’s Grotto in the Library, a variety of street entertainment, funfair, laser show, carols and the switching on of the Christmas tree lights. And, this year, the Parade is back adding to the excitement on the day!

From Celebration to Commemoration - a concert of contrasts with Bracknell Choral Society On Saturday 24th November at St Joseph's Church, Bracknell, RG12 1HA, Bracknell Choral Society presents a varied programme of fine music in our Autumn concert, with contrasting 17th and 20th century pieces.

The fresh and youthful Come Ye Sons of Art, written to celebrate the birthday of Queen Mary in 1694 is a contrast to the elegiac Funeral Sentences for Queen Mary, written just months later for the Queen's funeral. We will be rounding off the concert with John Rutter's glorious and well-loved Requiem, written in 1985 and popular around the world for its rich choral melodies The choir will be led by Greg Hallam, our professional musical director with professional orchestra, the Braccan Ensemble, and professional soloists, Anna Prowse - Soprano, Sarah Anne Champion Mezzo-Soprano and David Le Prevost - Bass. The concert starts at 7.30pm. Tickets cost £15 (accompanied under-18's free) and can be purchased at www.bracknellchoral.org. uk or from choir members.

ABC to Read With the academic year it's early stages, cooler days incoming and a cozy run up to Christmas, this is the perfect time to embed a habit that will set you in good stead for those post-Christmas blues and beyond. According to the Mental Health Foundation, doing good brings a sense of belonging, keeps things in perspective and even reduces stress.* Altruism is physiologically designed to make us feel good and volunteering is a great way of giving back, especially to your local community. Local reading charity ABC to Read are looking for volunteers to work one-to-one with primary school children to support them with their reading, encouraging them to enjoy stories and love the adventures that are on offer through words on a page. The charity's model of using trained volunteer mentors is gaining excellent results with 99% of those surveyed in their latest annual report confirming an improvement in their children’s attitudes to reading, 98% demonstrating improvement in reading accuracy and 96% showing improvement in reading comprehension. This academic year, ABC to Read have more schools requiring their help than ever before, resulting in a need for over 50 new volunteers across the county. Marcia Rowlinson, ABC to Read CEO, said: “While I'm thrilled that so many more children are receiving the support and encouragement they need with their reading, this increased demand also requires more volunteers. The impact we have on local youngsters is phenomenal and I'd love to be able to tell more schools that we can provide the help their children need because more volunteers have come forward." The charity also run workshops from school settings - showing

The Wokingham Word

parents how they can support their children at home - as well as workshops to schools' own parent helpers, as regular and consistent reading support is unfortunately not always possible in the home. ABC to Read are now expanding on these extended services by trialling a peer to peer support reading programme enabling students within secondary schools to work 1-1 with younger peers to improve their reading skills and attitude. According to the latest statistics, 25% of primary school children across England left primary school not meeting the expected levels in reading last year (2017-18). This can have a devastating effect on those children’s futures leading to all sorts of problems in secondary education and beyond. With more volunteers, ABC to Read can continue to tackle this comprehension crisis and support more primary school children. Help to inspire the next generation to love reading! There are still spaces available for any new volunteers to take part in the next ABC to Read training sessions. For more information about training days or joining the scheme as a school or volunteer mentor, contact: abctoread@btconnect. com

Toys & Teens Reading Family Aid –Toys & Teens 2018 Appeal The Reading Family Aid Toys & Teens Appeal 2018 will launch on Thursday 25th October. This annual Christmas appeal brings a little hope and happiness to local families living in desperate need, at a time of year when many feel lost and forgotten about. The charity’s appeal collects and redistributes new or "as new" toys, suitable for ages 0 – 16, to disadvantaged families at Christmas. All families have been nominated by social workers, and without your help, it is unlikely they will be able to buy their children gifts this year. The donation points will open on Thursday 25th October and remain open until Sunday 2nd December, after which scores of volunteers will sort, pack & deliver over 10,000 items to their grateful recipients. These donation points are located all over the borough; from Theale to Twyford, Winnersh and Emmer Green to Shinfield. None of this would be possible without the support of local volunteers and businesses such as Big Yellow, who provide free storage facilities, and Caversham Vehicle Hire who provide vans to deliver all of the gifts. In 2017, Reading Family Aid’s Toys & Teens Appeal delivered gifts to 1,500 disadvantaged children from over 600 families in time for Christmas, and with the help of the local community it aims to extend its reach even further this year. So, whether you’re sorting out your toybox, or Christmas shopping for the young people in your life, please pick up a gift for someone who would appreciate it more than you know. For more information on how you can support Reading Family Aid’s Toys & Teens appeal, including where to donate, please visit www.readingfamilyaid.org or follow us on twitter @RdgFamilyAid or Facebook www.facebook.com/readingfamilyaid If you would like to get involved with volunteering, please contact us via: info@ReadingFamilyAid.org

Devine Dash! Alexander Devine Children’s Hospice Service is holding its 6th annual fundraising Santa Dash event on Sunday 25th November in Windsor Town Centre. The fun starts from the moment you put your Santa Suit on! The Santa Dash route will guide you through wonderful Windsor taking in Long Walk, the Castle, Queen Victoria’s statue and Windsor’s great shopping streets. A great corporate team fundraiser or event for all your friends and family! We want everyone to get involved in this great festive fun run from 9am, which is open to all, to help raise funds to support Alexander Devine Children’s Hospice. It’s just 5km and you can dash, run, jog, skip or hop it ... it’s just for fun and simply the best way to kick off Christmas! Santa suits or reindeer antlers and a medal are included in the entry price and every penny raised goes directly towards supporting local children. Alexander Devine Children’s Hospice Service was founded 11 years ago. Fiona and John Devine from Windsor set up this local charity, named after their son Alexander, who sadly died aged 8 from a rare brain tumour. During the four years that Alexander was ill they realised the desperate need for a local children’s hospice. Fiona and John, who live in Windsor, wanted to improve the care and support for children with life limiting conditions in Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and surrounding counties. Today Alexander Devine Children’s Hospice Service funds Alexander’s Nurses, who run a community service in the home providing respite, play therapy, palliative care and end of life care. As well as creating a care team the dream was always to build a local children’s hospice. With the fantastic support of the local community the charity has now realised this dream by building a wonderful dedicated purpose built children’s hospice near Maidenhead on donated land. The hospice opened for Day Care in June this year. The

children’s hospice provides a wider range of services to families, offer them greater flexibility, choice, and ongoing respite support for the whole family ...

Alexander Devine needs your support to reach more local children and their families and to open their new much needed overnight provision early next year. Join this great family festive fun run by registering at http://www. alexanderdevine.org/santareg18.html or for more information contact fundraising@alexandervine.org or call Julia Philipson on 01628 822777 Thank you.
