Welcome to the village directory Hi everyone, Welcome to the March Issue, with March comes the anticipation of crisp and sunny spring days and the onset of British Summer Time. Sunday 25th March is a date to remember, the clocks will “spring” forward an hour. That is if the powers that be haven’t decided to change it after all these years! So don’t be caught out. Another important date this month is 18th March - Mother’s Day, and I’m sure my 16 year old son will be showering me with flowers and bars of mint Aero while he does the housework for me (I can but dream!) Since November when the magazine expanded its coverage into Rye, the content has been such that I’ve been unable to fit in our regular Wit & Wisdom feature. This has not gone un-noticed, so this month it’s back! Unbelievably the Village Directory is seven years old this year, and “Wit &

Do you need help at Home? “Private Care Service” rated by the Care Quality Commission

Wisdom” has proven to be a popular feature. But after so many editions it’s becoming increasingly difficult to find good, clean and inoffensive content for this page. I do receive contributions from readers, but I often fear I’m beginning to scrape the bottom of the barrel. So please send me your jokes, if they are clean and funny and there’s no risk of offending anyone (there’s a challenge!) why keep them to yourself! If we only raise a titter or even a “Doh”, it’s a welcome break from the doom and gloom we are often bombarded with. Apparently laughing is good for your health! Have a great month

The Garden Shed March

By Jackie Witcher Tenterden & District Horticultural Society

Well it came as no surprise to me the change in the weather we have had, and it certainly gave the spring bulbs a bit of a shock as they tried to get to grips with their untimely growth from the earth. The warmer weather in January stopped my snowdrops from emerging and I only had four brave enough to pop their heads up into sunshine. I also had a bit of a shock when I noticed robins and long tailed tits collecting debris as if to build nests!!! But that’s all changed now, as I look out from the office on to the patio. It’s a freezing cold day but still the hyacinths are emerging. I’m half expecting the paperwhite daffodils and crocus that are out to freeze solid! Now this shall come as a bit of a surprise. I cannot do the compost bit as my garden is just not big enough, but I do spread paper shreddings etc on to the vege


patch, if only to make me feel that I am doing my bit for the environment. When I had my hair cut recently, chatting on as women do about the garden etc, my friend informed me that when she worked at the salon, she had an elderly chap who had an allotment turn up each week and take all the hair cuttings. These were dug into his vege patch, and apparently he grew the most amazing vegetables. On reflection I should not have been too surprised at this, as I can remember my dad using the stuffing out of old mattresses on his garden. Weren’t they made from horsehair? or was it flok. Needless to say where my hair trimmings went, and subsequently the husbands too. I thought if the worms don’t want them, the birds could use it to line their nests. And very jazzy their nests will be too, as my hair is bright orange at the moment, a hairdressing disaster caused by too much talking!!! The leeks are slowly coming to an end now, though I am trying to save a few back for the Spring Show. Leeks will stay quite happily in the ground until ready for use, just keep an eye out for rot, especially if we have had a lot of wet weather. One soon gets fed up of leek and potato soup,

so try this leek, bacon and potato pie. Saute 4 slices of finely diced bacon till crispy and add a big knob of butter. Add ½ a finely diced onion and 2 finely shredded leeks and sweat down, don’t brown. Stir in a pot of Philadelphia cheese, (or be daring and try a pack of Boursin garlic and herb), add a good scrunch of black pepper and cool. Finely slice some par boiled potatoes. Line the greased pie dish with pastry, then starting with the leek mix, layer with the potatoes to fill the dish right up. Top with a pastry lid and pop a couple of slits in the top for the steam to escape. Give a good brushing with egg wash and bake gas 7 (or equivalent) for ½ hour or until brown, then turn down to Gas 3 for a further ½ hour to 45 mins. Absolutely delicious, hot or cold. I have been through my seed box and noted that a few packets have gone out of date. In the past I have tried growing these, but what a waste of time. Seldom did they germinate, but did I learn? Nope. I still tried growing them, but this year I am definitely throwing them out and getting a new batch. I have also decided to stick to my “old faithfulls” though I shall still grow the climbing mange tout and climbing French beans. I had quite a good return from these, and they are quite expensive to buy in

the supermarkets. Note - I must try and pick the mange tout more regularly and not miss any. Like runner beans it only takes one or two to mature and the plant stops producing. Well look at the time, I’ve chatted on yet again! Its so cold today that I am opting out of coffee. Now don’t worry, I’m having hot chocolate and instead of cake, choccy bics to dip. Bang goes the New Years Resolution. (sigh) I’m so weak!!

Growing Peppers Growing your own peppers is not much more involved than growing tomatoes, so why not give it a try? Pepper plants can be unbelievably pretty too, with fruits in a range of shapes and colour, generally on compact plants and preceded by small and very pretty white flowers. This is a plant with great ornamental as well as edible potential. Both chilli and sweet - or bell - peppers can be grown in a greenhouse border, in a sunny spot in the garden in warmer parts of the country, or on a sunny, sheltered spot on the patio. The heavier, earlier crop will come if you grow the plants in a greenhouse or conservatory, but it is well worth growing them outside too. Sweet peppers, especially the red ones, are very high in vitamin A and both red and green peppers are also very high in vitamin C. Chilli peppers also have a good supply of vitamins C and A and in addition, contain both beta-carotene and something called capsaicin which is believed to have a useful effect on blood cholesterol levels. The seeds are readily obtainable from many catalogues or garden centres but make sure you take into account the level of heat that each type delivers. Most seed packets and catalogues do make it very clear. Sow the seeds between now and early April. I use a multi-purpose or a seed compost, but for good germination you will need to provide a bit of extra warmth, ideally from a heated propagator positioned in a spot where it receives plenty of natural light. If you don’t have the time or facilities to raise your own from seed, you can always buy a few plants in a garden centre or send off for them. We offer two tasty varieties as part of my ‘Grow Your Own with Pippa Greenwood’ system (see for details). Keep the plants a tiny bit drier than you would a tomato plant and feed regularly

the garden

Chart Fencing

For all your fencing requirements and more...

with a high-potash liquid feed (most readily available as a ‘tomato food’). This helps to keep the plants growing strongly and the potash will encourage plenty of flowers and so fruits to form. If you are going for plants in pots, choose a planter that has good drainage and is 30cm (12in) or more in diameter, adding broken pots for extra drainage. Once there is no danger of late frosts you can put them outside in a sheltered, sunny spot. If you’re after the hottest possible heat from your chilli peppers, then you’ll find this comes from fruits that are totally ripe and from peppers that are grown in warmer conditions. If you are growing sweet peppers in patio pots then you are likely to find that there are still some unripened fruits on the plants when temperatures start to fall at the end of summer and well into autumn. To increase the chances of these ripening and increasing to full size, move the pots to a warmer spot or, if possible, to a porch, conservatory or greenhouse where they’ll get extra warmth and also plenty of natural light.

If you want chillies that look particularly good on the patio there are plenty to choose from. ‘Black Pearl’ is a hot chilli pepper with a distinct blackish tinge to the mature leaves and fruits that are black early on and mature darkest red.

International delegates and their flags

Rye Lions Are Winners 8

Five members of Rye and District Lions Club have just attended the 41st Annual Convention of District 105SE of the Lions held at Chichester. This District covers the counties of East and West Sussex, Kent, Surrey and London south of the Thames and consists of some 70 clubs. At the Convention various awards are made and Rye Lions were delighted to be awarded the shield for their first entry in the District Scrapbook Competition, which was the first time a year’s events of a Lions Club had been produced on a CD. The Scrapbook covered the Lions year 2010/11 and a copy is given to each of Rye Lions, and as it contained well over 200 various items from the media, it has been necessary in recent years to produce this as a CD for each member. The retiring Club President, however, receives a bound hard copy. In addition to the delegates from the south-east, there were representative Lions from France and Germany and

the guest of honour was the Past International Director Dr Patti Hill from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. The guests were escorted into the hall by members of the Sea Cadets carrying the flags of all the countries represented that day followed by the playing of all their national anthems. It was announced that membership of the clubs within the south-east had increased by 188 new Lions in the last year. A highlight of the Convention was a presentation by Allen Parton, Founder and Vice-Chairman, of the charity, Hounds for Heroes. Allen was severely wounded in the Gulf War and spent five years in hospital recovering from his injuries. Allen explained that the objective of this charity is to provide specially trained assistance dogs to injured and disabled men and women of both the UK armed forces and the civilian emergency services. Through this provision their aim is to provide help and practical support leading to an enhanced quality of life for their clients. Lions District Governor, Frank Lees, then presented Allen with a cheque for £1,000 from the Lions and said that the target was to increase this to £5,000 from the Lions in the south-east. Delegates were so moved by Allen’s talk that it was decided to hold a collection that day and £348 was collected.

Investing In Your Kitchen? J M Interiors Share Their Top Design & Planning Tips Think about these fundamental questions to create your perfect kitchen: 1) Functional use. Are you looking for a kitchen come family room? A kitchen/diner or a simple kitchen only space. The function will dictate its style and ultimate plan. 2) Storage – too little, too much? Too little you’re disorganised and your kitchen can’t function properly, too much and you’re wasting valuable design space. Think about dead spaces - gaps between cabinets & ceilings, redundant corners, sloping ceilings or obstructions such as beams. Bespoke cabinets mean these spaces are fully utilised.

the home 3) Work surfaces are always a big area of discussion and ultimately come down to priority – practicality, style or cost? Combining 2 surfaces such as stone & timber can provide warmth and reduce cost, worktops with built in antibacterial protection really benefit young families or for low upkeep – granite is no 1 in terms of style & maintenance. 4) Cabinet style - solid wood or a painted finish? Where to start on colours? We find it’s usually dictated by the amount of light your room has. If south facing then you’re lucky to have lots of natural light, north facing and you may need an extra helping hand to inject some brightness - this is where choice of colour can make a huge difference. J M Interiors offers a full colour advisory service understanding what coordinates well together. Having our own paint shop & spraying facility gives us a limitless colour palate and the ability to use a paint with proven durability.

5) Appliances – what are your must haves? What’s your cooking style? Looking to cut down on cleaning & maintenance? Fed up with a noisy dishwasher? Ever heard of a long, fresh fridge? All things to consider, prioritise and get guidance on. Being an AEG premier partner, we’re lucky to get access to the best in the market, suiting all budgets with the added bonus of a 5 year guarantee on most appliances. With so many factors, planning a new kitchen can be a confusing minefield – be sure to choose the right company to help advise you. J M Interiors is a family business who plan, design, manufacture & install bespoke kitchens & bedrooms; with over 38 years experience you can be reassured you’re in the right hands.

FREE LEGAL ADVICE FOR FAMILIES WITH UNDER 5 YEAR OLDS In another of our regular series on legal matters, this month Laura Hails, Legal Executive at Pengelly & Rylands Solicitors, talks about a new free legal advice service in Tenterden. Following the success of our free family law clinic, we are pleased to announce that we will be running a free drop in service at the Sure Start Centre, based at the Little Explorers Children Centre, Recreation Ground Road, Tenterden. This is specifically for families with children aged under 5 years of age.


We will be available at the centre every Wednesday from February, to discuss topics including divorce, cohabitation disputes, financial settlement after divorce and children issues. If any families have a legal issue or concern about their family, we will be available to talk things through, so that we can advise you of the best way forward in your situation, so that you can make an informed choice as to how you wish to proceed. It is a sad fact that we meet a number of families, often with young children, who are separating or in troubled relationships. There are a number of facilities available in the local area to provide families with additional support, and we are proud to work in partnership with Sure Start to assist families with under 5’s. We understand that costs are a factor in family matters, and people are concerned about instructing solicitors. We are aware that there is a need in the local area, particularly with families with under 5’s, to meet with a lawyer to discuss their concerns and to receive some initial free advice. At Pengelly & Rylands we encourage couples to communicate with each other and to try to keep matters as amicable as possible, by discussing what they want. We now have the

Laura Hails, Legal Executive at Pengelly & Rylands added benefit of being located at the Sure Start Centre, which has other facilities available for families with under 5’s, and we will be able to advise them whether any additional services, which are available through the Sure Start Centre, would be beneficial to them. Laura Hails will be pleased to meet with you at the Centre and will be available on a weekly basis.

wit & wisdom WALKING THE DOG A WOMAN was flying from Melbourne to Brisbane. Unexpectedly, the plane was diverted to Sydney along the way. The flight attendant explained that there would be a delay, and if the passengers wanted to get off the aircraft the plane would re-board in 50 minutes.


Everybody got off the plane except one lady who was blind. A man had noticed her as he walked by and could tell the lady was blind because her guide dog lay quietly underneath the seats in front of her throughout the entire flight. He could also tell she had flown this very flight before because the pilot approached her, and calling her by name, said, 'Kathy, we are in Sydney for almost an hour. Would you like to get off and stretch your legs?' The blind lady replied, 'No thanks, but maybe Buddy would like to stretch his legs..' s.. p shrink e e h s â&#x20AC;&#x203A;t Why don rains? when it

Picture this: All the people in the gate area came to a complete standstill when they looked up and saw the pilot walk off the plane with a Guide dog! The pilot il was even wearing i sunglasses. People scattered. They not only tried to change planes, but they were trying to change airlines! THINGS AREN'T ALWAYS AS THEY SEEM.
