Supporting Carers across Moray

Quarriers

Carer Support Service Moray

Quarriers Carer Support Service’s dedicated staff respond to both the practical and emotional needs of unpaid Carers of all ages across Moray.

“One of the biggest challenges we face is that many people don’t recognise themselves as Carers and don’t realise there is help available.”

Susan Leonard, Project Manager.

Carers can be parents, spouses, partners, children or friends who provide unpaid help to someone else who needs it on a regular basis.

Quarriers is a registered Scottish Charity No SC001960

This may be because the person they look after is frail or elderly, mentally or physically disabled or they may misuse alcohol or drugs. One in three of us will be an unpaid Carer at some point in our lives.

Quarriers provide a wide range of support including:

Young Carers - one to one support for young people to ensure their caring responsibilities are minimised and that they get the same opportunities as other young people in their community.

Training - based on what Carers tell us they need and delivered in local communities. Subjects include managing stress and benefit awareness.

Opportunities to meet other Carers - our Care and Share groups run throughout Moray and offer Carers an opportunity to meet up, share experiences and relax.

Advice and information - on a wide range of subjects eg specific medical conditions, local support services etc.

Emotional and practical support - is provided by our Adult Support Workers to help Carers cope in their caring role and to help them to develop ‘a life of their own’.

No Strings Attached’ confidential helpline (01343 555031) - is available for Carers who prefer to remain anonymous, but want information or advice. It is specifically targeted at Carers of people who misuse alcohol or drugs and Carers of people with mental health problems.

We should be used to it, I suppose, but I still feel slightly irked at a certain point in a telephone conversation to be asked by someone I don’t know what my postcode is, and then told by him or her what my address is. A large part of our lives nowadays is recorded in computers. And it’s not surprising that we feel at times as if something is being taken from us and that our personal liberty is being eroded. Yet the Bible tells us that God knows much more about us than any computer database. He knows every move we make, every word we speak, every nook and cranny of our lives. Everything is subject to His scrutiny. That’s because He’s God.

Pastoral Letter and Church Meetings Several years ago, Bette Midler released a song called ‘From a Distance.’ A constant refrain is “God is watching us, God is watching us, from a distance.” It’s unclear from the song whether the emphasis is on the fact that God is watching us or the fact that God isn’t anywhere too near. But it’s certainly true that God is watching us. God’s knowledge of us, however, is not like the worst aspects of the invasive media. It may be something of a challenge but it is also a comfort to know that there is someone who understands (from the inside) the real you and the real me, and still loves us - as He does. This was the experience of which a Hebrew poet wrote in Psalm 139.

Activities for children are available as required. Findochty Methodist Church welcomes you to fellowship every Sunday morning at 11am. We also meet weekly every Wednesday from 2pm-3.30pm for fellowship and fun.

It’s theme is God the inescapable. It says that wherever in the universe we may be we are surrounded by His presence. Wherever we go, His eye is always upon us. “If I went up to heaven, You would be there, if I lay down in the world of the dead, You would be there. If I flew away beyond the east, or lived in the farthest place in the west, You would be there to lead me… to help me.” (Psalm 139 verse 8 to 10) And why would we want it otherwise? Wherever I go, there God is. Now and always He upholds me with His power, and keeps me with his love. JG Matthew Buckie North Church

Organic Farming

SpotLight Local Interest

Sandy’s Story

At the vegetable section of my local supermarket I stood pondering….Organic…Non Organic? What’s the difference? Well for those of you who want to know, this is what it’s all about…. Organic farming is the name given to a variety of agricultural production systems that aim to work with nature, rather than by conquering it. Organic is most commonly associated with food production, both crop and livestock. However, organic methods are also employed in the production of many other goods, leading to products as diverse as timber and clothing, to be labeled as organic. The principal differences between organic farming and conventional farming are: an extensive restriction of the use of artificial pesticides, fertilisers and other agro-chemicals; ❍ a hostility to the agricultural application of biotechnology; ❍ a rejection of the routine use of pharmaceuticals on livestock; ❍ an attention to animal welfare; and ❍ a focus on crop rotation, soil quality and maintaining biological ❍

page 8 - October 2010

diversity as chemicals.

alternatives

to

In this way, organic farming is in many respects, a return to traditional farming methods. Organic food is felt by a growing number of consumers to be safer, more nutritious, taste better and be less harmful to the environment and animal welfare than conventionally produced food, and the market for it has grown in recent years accordingly. I recently spoke to Hugh Griesson, one of Scotland’s largest organic farmers, and he talked to me about his father Sandy. “Sandy was not an Organic farmer but watched with interest as Hugh stopped using sprays and fertiliser. He still worries about the weeds but the change that he really noticed was the butterflies. Insects have thrived since we went organic, especially the butterflies. They are drawn to the red clover that we plant for soil fertility. As they feed on the flowers they fill the farm with colour and movement. When the white clover flowers it can be quite alarming to walk through. Every step disturbs a cloud of bees. Fortunately they are well fed – too sleepy to be alarmed. Hoverflies and ladybirds hunt through our potato crops keeping them free of aphids and the diseases that aphids carry. Where there are insects there will be birds and mammals. We have wetland fields with Lapwings, Red Kite and Curlew. Other fields provide seeds for finches, larks, and Tree sparrows. Sand Martins follow the cows, hunting for tel: 01309 690063

insects. Barn owls hunt for voles and Red Kites clear up the leftovers.

Organic farming has brought the wildlife back into the fields but we have also worked at improving the woods and waste ground. We have planted hedges and wildflower meadows. We have dug ponds and planted woods. We look after wetlands and rare habitats. It is always very rewarding because new plants and animals moving in and setting up home repay our efforts. They all beautiful and all have a role to play. They are all a part of the jigsaw that makes up a healthy, living farm.” Moray Coast and the Highland’s have some of the finest organic farming in the world, so next time, like me, you stand pondering Organic or Non Organic, think of Hugh’s dad, Sandy!

SpotLight Chef’s Confidential

Sticky Toffee Pudding and Butterscotch Sauce

This month as the leaves are turning, one of our most popular sweets is sticky toffee pudding. It features often in our menu so I thought I would share the recipe. It is a fantastic sweet for the cooler months and cheer up those dark evenings. Ingredients - Pudding 100g Pitted Dates 50mls Water 50mls Orange Juice 75g Dark Or Light Brown Sugar 65g Butter (Room Temperature) 1 Egg 125g Plain Flour 7g Baking Powder 5g Bicarbonate Soda 1 tin condensed milk Ingredients - Sauce 75g Butter 250ml Double Cream 100g Light Brown Sugar Pinch Of Salt One Vanilla Pod Seeded Put dates, water and orange juice into a small pan and bring to the boil. Simmer until they have broken up slightly then leave aside (chefs tip - put in 2-3 earl grey teabags to add flavour) Cream sugar and butter with a hand blender or wooden spoon. Once soft, add your egg then continue to mix well. Sieve the flour and baking powder into creamed butter mix, then add bicarbonate of soda to date mix. Combine the date mix to the butter mix, stir well, then put into a greaseproof paper lined deep baking tin roughly 10”x 10”.

condensed milk (toffee) and spread it around into the mix before baking (the more the better). Cook in the oven at 180°C (gas mark 5) for 15/20 minutes. The mix will still will be soft and wet when you test with a skewer, hence the Sticky in Sticky Toffee Pudding! Cut to desired size and shape. Sauce method - this is simple - add all sauce ingredients into a sauce pan then boil gently until all has come together and sugar has dissolved. The difference between this and toffee sauce is that butterscotch has salt and vanilla in it. I would serve the Sticky Toffee Pudding with your favourite ice cream and the butterscotch. You could also replace buttertscotch with custard if you liked. This Recipe was given to me by my old head chef and good friend Mark Greenaway and I am now passing it out to you as I think we all love it! It's got to be up there with chocolate brownie for me, which I will leave for another month!

Boil the tin of condensed milk for 3 hours making sure the tin is fully submerged at all times (to save time, you may wish to purchase Carnation caramel available from local supermarkets). Take your boiled page 12 - October 2010

EXTRACTS FROM THE DRAFT MINUTES OF THE MEETING OF 5TH JULy 2010

Police Matters • CL said a traffic survey was conducted at Fife- Keith on the 1/7/2010. CL felt that they weren’t there long enough to see how much traffic there really was going through the area especially in evenings at the weekend. There are still complaints about the speed of some drivers. GC said to keep on taking number plates and reporting them. DH will be asked to contact the police on this matter again. • Vehicles on Nelson Court junction are causing an obstruction. • The Community warden has been notified of property damage in the Den. Two officers have been appointed to cover the estate. Children been reported to be wandering around at 3am, 10 - 11 year olds. • Implements/trailers parked in the lorry park - can they be removed. Presentation • John Cairnie and Richard Donald gave an interesting presentation from the Head of Children’s Services in Moray. They try to work with people in schools and other groups in the area to help youngsters and parents. Richard Donald left an information pamphlet for councilors to read over. Ivor Lee is a contact in Keith for anyone needing advice. • There was a reduction in Moray in the period 2006/2007 due to the partnership with the police that the group had. John Cairnie was interested to hear what the councilors thought of youth crime. JM said that the youth team had been cut although the community warden is greatly appreciated. She said there were still the ongoing problems that have always been around eg Noisy cars and underage drinking. She didn’t think it was any worse than twenty years ago. Matters Arising • DH took the decision to get vouchers for the youths who were being presented with awards at KGS. page 14 - October 2010

Parliament

“Blog ”

With the time delay between writing a column and it being in print I suspect summer will be a distant memory, however I feel it is still timely enough to make mention of a new business in Fochabers which is already enjoying great success with locals and visitors alike. After a visit to Fochabers Ice Cream Parlour you, like me, will probably be amazed, not just at the very cool old style signage complete with giant cone, but also at the unbelievable mouth watering selection of ice creams. With flavours including ‘Blackforest Gateaux’, ‘Fudgy Mallow Swirl’ and the very old school ‘Parma Violets’ I can honestly say I had to be dragged away, but not before managing to get a cone. It’s great to see a new business up and running and using local suppliers, especially in the current challenging economic environment, and I wish them every success.

Angu s Robert son MP Over the summer and away from parliamentary duties I have managed to get back to cycling, which I very much enjoy but which also often takes a back seat. Along with the family I have been exploring the cycling byways around Elgin and Lossiemouth and introducing my two young children to the activity before being rapidly outclassed with youthful energy while I am peching and wheezing my way up a hill. Fortunately a few days out have blown the cobwebs away and I am feeling a little fitter than I was. The trick of course will be keeping up the effort but with the same two youngsters pestering me to take them out it will hopefully continue! Rich ard Lochhead MSP

sourced lights for the A96 - have to be bought in June or the price goes up. 20 will be bought. • MC - Signs and Street Furniture - MC asked about signs going up to point the way to Mid Street shops - permission from C Murphy would be asked for. Was there any money from KCRP from this group that could be used to change the signs that MC already has in storage. It wouldn’t cost much too get the signs are written. Notice board displaying information has never been done in Tesco. Flags pointing the way to Mid Street were suggested at the end of the lane on Moss Street, going to Mid street – Auction room lane. Tubs not looked after in Keith Square. Nobody has volunteered to do them this year. Sign fallen down in Newmill. External Groups Updates Regeneration Partnership – Most comments are positive about the flags on Mid Street. Some need to be uncurled. Hopefully shopkeepers will do this. Other ones to go up for Keith Show and in Fife Keith. Next Meeting The next meeting wiill be on Monday 4th October 2010 at 7pm in Keith Sports and Community Centre.
