GET THE DRINKS IN! “Tis the season to be merry’, and that means selecting the right beverages to see you through the celebrations. Richie Hammond chooses his top tipples for your Christmas meals richie hammond

If you’re planning on cooking the traditional Turkey dinner at home, as I am this year, which wines should you consider? Deciding what to drink pre- and post-turkey can be critical to a successful meal. One thing I find with turkey is it can be a bit dry so the last thing you want to drink is a heavy tannin red (your mouth will be dry enough) so you could start with a refreshing aperitif like an Italian sparkling Chardonnay Ferghettina Milledi Brut at around the £25 price range is a lovely choice but others can work just as well. Next for the bird try a lovely white Burgundy Saint Veran (£15) or if you prefer red a fruity Beaujolais Villages (£9). For dessert how about a delicious South African half bottle of Rustenberg Straw Wine (£10) then finish the afternoon with either a Vidal White Label Series Rosé (£6) or a Grahams Port ( £10). If cranberry sauce is on the menu then

@ylcrowd

definitely give bone-dry reds a wide berth as the collision can be more uncomfortable than warring in-laws. How about a wonderful pink Champagne for Christmas evening? Lidl’s are currently offering a Bissinger & Co Champagne Rose for 14.95 which is has to be the best value for money offer of the season. This vibrant champagne will ease you into Christmas evening like a velvet glove picking you up and gently placing you in your favorite chair warm and relaxed. The bubble strength (always a good sign of quality) is like watching a hidden underwater volcano in the bottom of your glass bursting a stream of tiny bubbles to the top of your glass, which will dance around your mouth with a flavour you will love. Where ever you’re going, whatever you’re eating and drinking, I hope you and your family enjoy each others company and have a wonderful day. Cheers Richie

The Castle Cafe & Cellar Bar, Quay Street, Cardigan SA43 1HU. It`s a very friendly little Cafe during the day serving food at very reasonable prices and a fantastic evening venue with fabulous LIVE music, LIVE poetry evenings and Acoustic evenings. It has become a sort of home from home for many and you can’t get a better recommendation than that! The owner is a very genial guy and great fun. The whole place is quirky and welcoming. I love it.

WINTER DRIVING Some practical advice for motorists driving in frosty and wintery conditions sam@yourlocalcrowd.co.uk

@ylcrowd

DRIVING IN ICY CONDITIONS Slow down, steer gently and avoid sudden sharp braking or acceleration Leave a bigger gap between you and the car in front If you skid, do not brake harshly, If you travel across black ice and the steering feels light, don’t brake, just ease off the accelerator

ENSURE YOUR VEHICLE IS PREPARED Antifreeze – check coolant level regularly and, if required, top-up with antifreeze. Battery – the most common cause of winter breakdowns. A battery more than five years old may struggle in the cold. Fuel – keep at least a quarter of a tank in case of unexpected delay. Lights – check and clean all lights regularly. Carry spare bulbs. Tyres – need at least 3mm of tread for winter motoring. Check pressures at least every fortnight. Windscreen – reduce dazzle from the low sun by keeping the screen clean inside and out.  Screen wash – use a 50% mix of a good quality screen wash to reduce the chance of freezing in frosty weather. Locks and door seals – stop doors freezing shut with a thin coat of polish or Vaseline on door rubber seals. A squirt of water dispersant (WD-40) in locks will help stop them freezing.

WINTER EMERGENCY KIT – IT IS WORTH KEEPING IN YOUR VEHICLE Blanket, rug or sleeping bag Shovel, Torch and batteries, Tow rope Bits of carpet or thick cardboard to place under driven wheels to help regain traction on ice or snow Salt, sand or cat litter – to help clear snow and ice Reflective jacket(s) Ice scraper and de-icer Snow chains (if you live in a remote or rural area) Battery jump leads Bottled water Snacks – chocolate or cereal bars Extra screen wash

WHEN BAD WEATHER IS FORECAST Warm winter coat, scarf, hat, gloves and warm clothes Waterproofs Sturdy boots Flask of hot drink Read more at www. yourlocalcrowd.co.uk/guides Background image ©Simon Howden.FreeDigitalPhotos.net

7 TIPS FOR KEEPING ACTIVE THIS WINTER Leanne Bird discusses the benefits of staying active over the winter months. @Bird_Sol_

So, nights are drawing in, frost is biting and rain dampening our spirits – an excellent excuse not to be active and stay at home hibernating till spring, right? But…, if you think about it, the summer wasn’t great, autumn was wet and windy… so if you wait until the days are nice and nights are long and warm… you’re going to be active in about 7 out of 365 days! Therefore, I’ve put together 7 tips to kick yourself in the butt, stop making excuses and find a way that works for you to get on that journey to become the best you that you can be!

5. GO TO A FITNESS CLASS

1. ACCEPTANCE

7. HEAD ON A CIRCULAR WALK

There is nothing else for it – you’re just going to have to accept the weather is unpredictable and often cold and wet, so taking that out of the equation can help with your motivation to get active.

2. WORK OUT FROM HOME Ok, so you really can’t drum up the motivation to step your toe outside? Make space and get your fitness DVDs out. Make sure they’re the right level for you, especially if you haven’t been active for a while, a lot of the intense workouts may not be suitable for your joints or your heart/blood pressure.

3. JOIN A CLUB This can really help you to stay motivated. Running, football, kayaking, surfing, netball, you name it there will hopefully be a club for you.

4. GO BRIGHT Just because it’s dark doesn’t mean you can’t get outdoors – get your bright gear on and head out (where it’s safe) doing some fast walking or running. Sign up to a local 5k Santa Dash to give you a target and download the couch to 5k app.

Drag a friend or go on your own – there are lots of options, day or night, high or low intensity, yoga to kickboxing. Give it a go and try to commit by buying block sessions to give yourself more motivation to keep attending.

6. WEAR LAYERS AND KEEP HYDRATED Although it may be cold, you’ll soon warm up. Having several light layers will enable you to stay at the right temperature and put layers on when you stop. Even though it’s cold, stay hydrated – get that water down you! There is nothing like going on a nice winter walk and ending with a steaming hot mug of tea (or a cool pint if you prefer)! Grab a few mates, plan your route and get out there and breathe that fresh cool air. You’ll also find books with pre-designed routes for you for example the Best Pub Walks series. What are you waiting for? Get out there! As part of BirdSol’s HAWC (Health and Wellbeing in Communities) initiative I have just started a new Boxercise class in Cardigan Friday’s 12-1pm – why not give that a go (booking essential). I can also offer tailored consultations and programs (to be carried out at home or with a trainer) for individuals or small groups who want to get out of their fitness/lifestyle rutt and need some fitness/nutrition/ wellbeing guidance and support that is right for them.

PREPARING FOR WINTER Whether we enjoy another beautiful Indian Summer or not, there are plenty of jobs to be getting on with in the garden as Autumn heads in to Winter

WINTER CLEANING Winter is a great time to clean your garden equipment. Utensils, pots and seed trays can all benefit from a good wash, using a mild detergent if necessary. Make sure your tools are properly dry before you put them away to avoid rust. Protect wooden handles with linseed oil, and sharpen your shears and secateurs. Get your lawnmower serviced now. BUILDING MAINTENANCE Check your sheds and greenhouses for rot or other damage; replace greenhouse panes that might be susceptible to high winds and nail down loose roofing

28 | www.yourlocalcrowd.co.uk

TOP TIPS 1. Clear your borders 2. Clean your gardening kit 3. Get your mower serviced 4. Make sure sheds and other structures are weather-proofed 5. Give your lawn some TLC 6. Look after the wildlife 7. Plant spring bulbs 8. Tidy up the veg patch 9. Protect winter veg 10. Buy your seeds for next year felt on your shed. Apply another coat of wood preservative if needed. Check other garden structures such as your gates and fences to make sure they are in good order before the really bad weather arrives.

TENDER LAWN CARE TLC for your lawn that’s been walked, run, and BBQ’d on all summer. Try and avoid walking on the grass, although feel free to attack any large weeds and moss. Rake up fallen leaves regularly. COSSET YOUR NON-HARDY PLANTS All those delicate dahlias and geraniums need to be lifted and stored or potted up for winter. Move bigger plants in pots nearer

the house where it will be warmer. Protect those you can’t move – tree ferns, banana plants, gunnera, from the colder weather wrapped up in hessian or insulated with straw.

THE VEG PATCH Get rid of any canes and netting that can’t be re-used next year, and dig over any soil that isn’t currently being used for winter veg. Cover parsnips, carrots and other root veg with leaves or straw so that the soil doesn’t freeze and you can keep harvesting through the winter. THE BORDERS As with other areas in the garden, your borders and tubs need a good clear out. Prune summer flowering shrubs, dead head Autumn flowering plants, cut back herbaceous plants and get rid of summer bedding and weeds. If everything is looking a bit sorry for itself, plant winter bedding for splashes of colour on the greyest days. PLANT SPRING BULBS Speaks for itself – tulips, daffodils, snowdrops, crocuses, whatever you like. Equally spectacular in pots or planted in drifts through the garden, planting bulbs as Winter draws in gives you something to look forward to.

For a list of local Garden centres visit www.yourlocalcrowd.co.uk/guides

AS the days get shorter, the temperature drops and all life seems to seep from the garden, you might want to do nothing more than curl up in front of the fire and dream of spring. But getting your garden in shape will do you the world of good! This is the time of year your welly boots were made for! Grab your woolly socks, some gloves and get out in to the garden. It’s also a time to reflect and reshape, make changes you may have been contemplating. And, if nothing else, it will make that fireside cup of tea and slice of cake all the more delicious!

CRANBERRIES Cranberries, the guilt free super food of the festive season. As far as healthy food go, they top the list due to their high nutritional and antioxidant content. Here we list the many health benefits of cranberries, so serve with your turkey, in your stuffing and add to your puddings and drinks, but most of all, enjoy. sam@yourlocalcrowd.co.uk

PROTECT THE CARDIOVASCULAR SYSTEM AND LIVER Again due to the very high antioxidant content of cranberries, you can improve the function of your heart, lungs, circulatory system, and liver! Both dried and fresh cranberries are packed with antioxidants. Eating more cranberries is a great way to get the antioxidants needed for healthy cardiovascular function, as well as detoxifying your liver! DENTAL HEALTH It can benefit our dental health, by helping prevent bacteria from sticking to our teeth. It also helps to reduce inflammation in and around gums, which in turn prevents the risk of gum disease. PROTECTS AGAINST CANCER Not only can the cranberries help to reduce the swelling that may lead to cancer, but it can block a wide range of enzymes that contribute to the formation, growth, and spread of cancer cells. Cranberries are known to protect your body from a number of cancers, such as prostate cancer, breast

cancer, colon cancer, and lung cancer. It can prevent the cancer cells from triggering cellular death, which is part of what turns the cells in your body cancerous. The result: a healthier you with a much lower risk of carcinogens turning dangerous! BOOSTS THE IMMUNE SYSTEM Vitamin C is needed for a healthy immune system and cranberries are one of the best natural sources of Vitamin C. PREVENTS AND TREAT UTI’S Cranberries have long been used as a natural remedy for urinary tract infections (UTIs) Their high levels of antioxidents called proanthocyanidins help reduce bacteria from adhering to urinary tract walls, preventing them from causing infections. THE BEST WAY TO ENJOY CRANBERRIES Fresh of course! - A healthy fruit to enjoy as they come. They can also be frozen.

GREAT FOR DIGESTION! Being a fruit cranberries are high in fiber and one of the healthiest berries around thanks to their high vitamin C and antioxidant content. Dried cranberries are super rich in fiber, which is eliminated once juiced. Rich in antioxidants they also help to reduce inflammation. This can potentially help with rheumatoid arthritis, stomach and digestive disorders!

THE NEW YEAR RESOLUTION! How many of us will make a New Year’s resolution – maybe to lose weight, quit smoking or drink less – and fail at the first hurdle? Well, don’t be too hard on yourself, you are not alone! If 2018 is the year for change, here are our top tips on how to set some realistic and achievable goals. sam@yourlocalcrowd.co.uk

We’re more likely to succeed if we break our resolution into smaller goals that are specific, measurable and time-based. So here goes…

MAKE JUST ONE RESOLUTION You are more likely to succeed if you focus on changing just one aspect of your behaviour.

@ylcrowd

STAY MOTIVATED Monitor and check off those mini goals regularly to help you stay motivated.

DON’T RUSH THE DECISION

REWARD YOURSELF

Don’t make a rash decision over a glass of fizz on New Year’s Eve, you are setting yourself up for failure before even starting! Take your time to think carefully about your future goal.

On reaching each mini goal, reward yourself, maintaining that sense of achievement.

DON’T REPEAT PREVIOUS FAILED RESOLUTIONS Mix it up, tweak and change creating a new resolution, simply revisiting past resolutions sets you up for failure before you even begin!

STAND OUT... ...from the crowd, create and tailor your own resolution, do the unexpected!

SMALL STEPS… Set your goal but then break it down into small achievable steps, creating more satisfying and reachable mini goals.

TALK ABOUT IT Tell everyone about your goals! By doing this you’ll receive far more support.

KEEP A RECORD Without boring your family and friends, keep a record of your achievements! Log them in a journal, take photos, mark it in a diary, anything that helps track and record your progress. This will help motivate you to continue to the end goal.

DON’T GIVE UP Don’t flap if you revert to old habits once in a while, don’t get down about it, just revisit your original plan and re-focus…don’t give up. Everyone is allowed a little wobble, you’re human after all! So whether you are choosing to lose weight, quit smoking, get active, drink less or simply wish to lead a healthier lifestyle, plan, set lots of mini goals, take small steps and don’t forget to reward yourself on your success. We wish you a Happy New Year and lets see what 2018 will bring!

Health & Safety

ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT FIRE EXTINGUISHERS Welcome to our new column from Rescue 365, the commercial training arm of Mid and West Wales Fire and Rescue service. Rescue 365 specialise in advising businesses and organizations on the Fire Safety requirements and training that they legally must provide to ensure all persons within their premises remain safe should a fire occur. richie.hammond@rescue365.co.uk

Hello. In this issue we are going to continue looking at Fire extinguishers, which type to use on what type of fire? To recap, last time we explored Water and Foam, so this time we’ll look at Carbon Dioxide (CO2), Dry Powder and Fire Blankets and give you the confidence to use the correct extinguisher when needed. It’s important to remind ourselves that, we don’t use a Fire extinguisher unless it’s essential. Fire extinguishers have the capacity to extinguish fires which are no bigger than a small bin so trying to use them on anything bigger is not advisable and possibly dangerous. They are there to aid your escape, not for you to try and put a fire out or, especially, to rescue someone. If you discover a fire in a building you should raise the alarm, exit the building and call the Fire Service on 999. If your exit is hampered by fire then an extinguisher can be used to help you and others exit. So, lets look at Dry Powder, C02 and Fire Blankets. CARBON DIOXIDE FIRE EXTINGUISHERS All extinguishers are red in colour and have a coloured panel on the body to identify the type. CO2 has a black panel with the words CO2 on it. It can be used safely on Electrical Fires flammable liquids and gasses. It works by displacing oxygen, or taking away the oxygen element of the fire triangle. The carbon dioxide is also very cold as it comes out of the extinguisher, so it cools the fuel as well. CO2s may be ineffective at extinguishing Class A fires because they may not be able to displace enough oxygen to successfully put the fire out. Class A materials may

also smolder and re-ignite. To operate remove the pin depress the handle. Stand around 1 meter from the fire and discharge in a sweeping motion at the base of the fire. Try not to touch the horn as it may be very cold and possibly hurt your hand. DRY POWDER FIRE EXTINGUISHERS These have a blue coloured panel on the body and are used on Class D fire or Combustible Metals. The Dry Powder is very effective as they extinguish the fire by separating the fuel from the oxygen element or by removing the heat element of the fire triangle. FIRE BLANKETS They should be located in the vicinity of the fire hazard, but in a safe position and safe access in the event of fire. Simply pull the tab to remove the blanket from its holder. Hold, not exposing your hands and fingers, lay blanket over the cooking pan and turn off the heat. DO NOT be tempted to check if the fire is out or carry the pan outside as this could reignite the fire. Raise the alarm, exit the building and call 999. Remember extinguishers may be used to reduce the risk of a small fire escalating into a large fire, to aid escape or may be used to protect life. But always ADHERE TO YOUR ORGANISATION POLICY Next time we’ll look at ignition sources and how to lower their risk. If you would like any advice on Fire Safety or commercial training in the meantime email me at Richie.hammond@rescue365.co.uk Stay safe - Richie www.rescue365.co.uk
