GET YOUR LIFE BACK ON TRACK If you are feeling stressed, under pressure, in pain, anxious or simply looking for greater clarity, a visit to The Retreat is for you. Everyone has stress. It is after all a normal part of life. Whether stress comes from pain, sadness, worry, anxiety, addiction or the 101 other things going on in our lives it can threaten our health and well-being.

Conventional treatments can sometimes fail to produce the intended results for a patient provoking them to seek out kinder and gentler treatments and therapies to manage their stress, pain, or anxiety. Opting for alternatives can often produce the same health outcomes without the side effects of drugs and treatments. Lakshmi Amarasingha originally from Sri Lanka and working locally as a Nurse for many years, believes alternative therapy is the answer to many ailments, having studied alternative therapies for many years Lakshmi uses her knowledge and experience to successfully help people of all ages with a vast range of ailments from stress to chronic illness.

Lakshmi Amarasingha RGN, BSc Nursi ng, D ip CFHP, MPSPract, Dip MAN Care (OU)

Working from ‘The Retreat’ a purpose built clinic in Wordsley Lakshmi is kind and welcoming, unlike a conventional surgery or clinic the rooms are adorned with mementos of her life in Sri Lanka, warm, welcoming and very private with views to the woodland beyond.

Whatever ailment or problem you have, a visit to see Lakshmi at the Retreat to experience a unique Brain Off-loading treatment could be the perfect solution for you.

To advertise call 07726 790233 - villagermagazine.co.uk


‘ARE YOU SUFFERING, IN PAIN ANXIOUS MIND CLUTTERED?’ INSTANT, TIMELESS THERAPY with UNBELIEVABLE RESULTS THE POWER TO CREATE NEW POSSIBILITIES IS WITHIN YOU You might just need a helping hand Please contact Lakshmi Amarasingha to find out more

07796 135780 or 01384 402 975 During your visit you will experience a treatment that is uniquely tailored just for you, there is no need to talk, no drugs or instruments are used and there are no side effects, you will be giving your brain an MOT leaving you with the power to create new possibilities in your life. Having previously found Lakshmi’s treatments very beneficial, I was looking forward to my visit to The Retreat. I received the warmest of welcomes and thoroughly enjoyed my time at The Retreat, As my experience was a unique treatment tailored for me I can only say that I found it perfect for my needs and truly informative and enlightening.

As I generally tend to spend my days behaving like a Swan, calm and unruffled on the surface but below paddling like mad to keep up with a busy lifestyle. I was amazed by the sense of calm and relaxation I felt following my session, no more mad paddling now more of a sense of gliding. I left The Retreat knowing that I have all the abilities I need to keep myself healthy, happy and calm and of course I can return whenever I feel the need. I would highly recommend that you make an appointment with Lakshmi if you are suffering in any way, whether you are in pain or just need to off-load your troubles and de-clutter your mind. You may discover your true importance and the way forward to a happy, healthy and meaningful life. If you have any questions or would like to make an appointment please call Lakshmi on 01384 40 29 75 or 07796 13 57 80

WIN TICKETS TO CLOUDBUSTING the music of Kate Bush CLOUDBUSTING – the music of Kate Bush is a tribute that celebrates 40 years since The Kick Inside announced to the world the genius of Kate Bush and comes to Wolverhampton Grand Theatre for one night only on Wednesday 21 March 2018. We have a pair of tickets to give away to one lucky winner!

Time and again since that remarkable debut, Kate has secured her place in music history with ground-breaking albums such as The Dreaming, Hounds of Love and Aerial. Her triumphant Before The Dawn shows at the Hammersmith Apollo sold out in minutes and changed perceptions of what a concert could be forever. Influenced by none, influencing many, there is truly no other artist like her. Mandy Watson on vocals sees her role in CLOUDBUSTING as paying homage to Kate’s music rather than trying to ‘be’ her. ‘These songs tell stories from the point of view of so many different characters; when you perform them, that’s who you become. It’s quite an emotional journey!’ Mandy discovered The Kick Inside in her parent’s record collection as a young girl and fell instantly in love with its haunting melodies, unusual lyrics and… that voice!

It was only when her father, a manager at Woolworths, brought home a poster that she was able to put a face to the music. Since then, singing The Man With The Child In His Eyes into a hairbrush in front of the mirror has evolved into performing in front of thousands of fellow Kate Bush fans across all corners of the UK. “Frontwoman Mandy Watson can do it, matching Bush’s ridiculously large range and acrobatic melodies note-for-note. She recreates every nuance of Bush’s versatile and expressive singing, while also managing to connect with the audience and have buckets of stage presence.” The Rescue Rooms, Nottingham. Tickets are available by calling 01902 42 92 12, visiting the Grand Theatre in person or online at grandtheatre.co.uk

WIN TICKETS TO CLOUDBUSTING

To be in with a chance of winning 2 tickets to see Cloudbusting on Wednesday 21st March at 7.30pm , just answer the question:

GARDENING

PERFECT PRIMULAS

T

he name primula comes from the Latin for “first” and the native Primrose (Primula vulgaris) is a herald of spring in many woodlands. There are many types of primrose, some common and easy and others rare and requiring special conditions. Thankfully there are plenty of the former to satisfy the average gardener, and enough of the latter to be an absorbing hobby for the enthusiast. This month I’m going to focus on some I’ve found easy enough for most gardens provided you meet the general requirement for a moist soil and some shade from the hot sun. Primulas can be easily raised from seed but do best from very fresh seed, collected as soon as (or even just before) the seed pods open and sown immediately. If you need to keep seed, then its best in a sealed jar in the fridge. The seed compost must not dry out and a humid atmosphere helps – cover the seed tray with a sheet of glass or a clear plastic bag. In the right conditions seed can germinate in 3 weeks or so. Once the plants have clumped up it is best to divide them after flowering, or perhaps in early autumn in a cooler spell of weather. Dig up the clump and break it, or if necessary cut it, into

20

individual rosettes. Shorten the leaves by about half to reduce water loss. Some old books recommend dusting the bases of the stems with sulphur powder, or you could dip them in a fungicide solution following the instructions on the pack. I don’t bother with either! Replant or pot up the small plants and keep moist and shaded while there get established. There are lots of British native Primulas, including the woodland Primrose. The Cowslip (Primula veris) is one of the most accommodating, even growing on dry, sunny banks and seedling around to form large colonies naturalised in grass. They are a common sight along roadsides and railway embankments in late spring. Hybrids of these natives gave us the Polyanthas – well-loved bedding plants that are nonetheless perennial flowering every year if divided after flowering. One of my favourite types is the Gold Lace Polyanthus with its yellow centre and gold-edged almost black petals. This type was championed by northern enthusiasts in the late 1800’s and remain firm favourites with many petal colours available and underwent a revival of interest in the 1980’s.

Some of the most dramatic and easy to grow are the candelabra primulas with their multiple whorls of flowers along upright stems. There are many colours and hybrids to choose from including Bessiana (pink), Bulleyana (orange), pulverulenta (deep pink) and the dramatic Inverewe (burnt orange). These definitely need damp conditions and are traditionally grown next to steams and ponds or in woodland boggy areas. If allowed to seed, they will mix and produce plants in many colours. Another favourite is the Drumstick Primula (P. denticulate) with its short flower stems topped with a ball of flowers in white, blue or pink. These tolerate slightly drier conditions but must not dry out completely if they are to do well. Auriculas are wonderful plants for the cold greenhouse and there are some that will perform well in the garden as well, but you need to check with the supplier when buying. Auriculas have fleshy leaves and stems and I’ve found that they want to be moist but not saturated to do well. Apart from the wonderfully coloured and patterned flowers most auriculas are intensely fragrant as well.

The traditional way to display pot-grown auriculas is in an Auricula Theatre. This is an open cabinet of shelfs hung from a shady wall or fence where each plant can be shown to full effect. Terracotta pots are best and short split canes are used to hold the flower stems completely upright. Primulas can be subject to a few pests and by far the most devastating is vine weevil which seems to have a special liking for fleshy roots. If your primulas wilt in the first warm days of spring despite a moist soil, try tugging gently at the plants. If they come out of the soil easily or don’t feel firmly planted dig them up and look at the roots. If there’s none or very few rootle around in the soil and look for vine weevil grubs. These are white with a brown head, about ½ inch / 1cm long and have no discernible legs. Get them all out – there could be one or two or lots – and squash them or feed them to your local Robin, just make sure they don’t wriggle away. Shorten the leaves on the plant and replant it or pot it up. Apart from that most gardeners will find primulas easy to grow and trouble free.

GIVE SAILING A GO IN THE BLACK COUNTRY THIS MAY here’s something for everyone as RYA Push The Boat Out gives you the chance to try sailing and windsurfing for free or low cost in the Black Country this May.

If you’re on the lookout for something completely different, whether you’re bored of the gym and want some outdoor health and fitness, are a bit of an adrenaline junkie, need something to switch your brain off from everyday life or simply want a sociable new activity you can enjoy with your partner or family, pop down to your local sailing club or centre during Push The Boat Out and have a go.

Over 22,000 people regularly go along to their local sailing club every month across the Midlands, sailing small sailboats or windsurfing on the region’s reservoirs, lakes and rivers. Gareth Brookes, RYA Regional Development Officer for the Midlands, said: “If you didn’t even know you could go sailing or windsurfing on your doorstep, now’s the time to give it a go. So many people still don’t realise it is possible to sail in the Midlands and that you don’t even need to own a boat as clubs and centres have ones to borrow or hire.”

22

“Once you’ve learned the ropes, you can sail on your own or with your partner, friends or kids in dinghies or big boats, inland or on the coast. You can enjoy watersports and flotilla holidays overseas too. Whatever experience you’re after, sailing can offer it as there is always something new to discover. And after you’ve given your mind and body an onthe-water workout, nothing beats having a drink by the water on warm summer evenings." In 2017 a whopping 31,000 people ‘pushed the boat out’ at over 500 sailing and windsurfing taster sessions across the UK.

At least six venues across the Black Country are hosting Push The Boat Out events throughout the whole of May. All kit and safety equipment is provided so just bring a pair of old trainers you don’t mind getting wet and your sense of fun. Refreshments will be available with a host of shoreside activities and entertainment to enjoy too. Find your nearest event at www.rya.org.uk/ptbo

PURSUING A BETTER

Written by JPA Financial Services Ltd

INVESTOR EXPERIENCE EMBRACE MARKET PRICING The market is an effective information-processing machine. Millions of participants buy and sell securities in the world markets every day, and the real-time information they bring helps set prices.

AVOID MARKET TIMING You never know which market segments will outperform from year to year. By holding a globally diversified portfolio, investors are well positioned to seek returns wherever they occur.

DON’T TRY TO OUT GUESS THE MARKET The market’s pricing power works against investment fund managers who try to outperform through stock picking or market timing.

MANAGE YOUR EMOTIONS Many people struggle to separate their emotions from investing. Markets go up and down. Reacting to current market conditions may lead to making poor investment decisions.

RESIST CHASING PAST PERFORMANCE Some investors select funds based on past returns. However, research shows that past performance offers little insight into a fund’s future returns. LET MARKETS WORK FOR YOU The financial markets have rewarded longterm investors. People expect a positive return on the capital they supply, and historically, the equity and fixed income markets have provided growth of wealth that has more than offset inflation. PRACTICE SMART DIVERSIFICATION Diversification helps reduce risks that have no expected return but diversifying within your home market is not enough. Global diversification can broaden your investment universe.

LOOK BEYOND THE HEADLINES Daily market news and commentary can challenge your investment discipline. Some messages stir anxiety about the future, while others tempt you to chase the latest investment fad. When headlines unsettle you, consider the source and maintain a long-term perspective. FOCUS ON WHAT YOU CAN CONTROL A financial adviser can offer expertise and guidance to help you focus on actions that add value. This can lead to a better investment experience. If you are not getting value for money, then it’s time to talk to us for professional advice. BY ENGAGING JPA TODAY YOU CAN LOOK FORWARD TO A MORE SECURE TOMORROW

'Capes and Capers- Kingswinford's Mini Comic Con; is being organised by British Comic Award nominated writer, Stu Perrins. Stu, who is the writer and co-creator of such titles as Prime and Whatever happened to the Archetype?' had this to say about the event.'While I love the bigger comic conventions you get at places at the NEC, you can (and will) spend an arm and a leg on a ticket just to get into the hall, which in today's world is a heck of a lot of money and why this little comic shindig will be completely free entry. I'm hoping people who wouldn't usually think about coming to a comic show might come along to this one, meet some local creators and discover what all the fuss is about. So, whether you're a life long fan or someone who only has a passing idea of who Batman and Superman are, come along- there'll be something for everyone.' As well as Stu, other exhibitors include local author Dan Barnes, Fly Comics and more.

CHARITY ART EXHIBITION AND CRAFT SALE IN AID OF CHERNOBYL CHILDREN SATURDAY MARCH 24TH 10.30am - 5pm

AT ST PETER’S CHURCH HALL KINVER

Enjoy coffee and cake or a spot of lunch and view a wide variety of work by local and professional Artists which will be available for sale on the day. The proceeds from the event will go to Chernobyl Children, a Charity which brings radiation affected children from Belarus to the UK for a month’s respite care. These children suffer as a direct result of the contamination from the Chernobyl Nuclear Disaster which happened 32 years ago. This is a completely voluntary organisation which has been bringing children to the local area for the past 25 years. The people of Chernobyl were exposed to radioactivity 90 times greater than the Hiroshima bomb. According to the UN, there is still a real threat to the gene pool of Belarus with second generation children even more likely to suffer side effects. It is currently estimated that it will take up to 400 years to rid Belarus of the bulk of the contamination but some areas will remain contaminated for up to 24,000 years. For the children brought to the UK we hope that a rest from the relentless bombardment of radiation, which affects every part of the Belarusian food chain, will boost their damaged immune systems.

For information regarding the event or the Charity please contact Ann Becke 07711 154 401
