The proposal is sponsored and will be funded by Postcode Publications in co-ordination with land owners Hampshire County Council and Kathryn Robinson, Headteacher of Bosmere School. The Glade will provide a much enhanced public view of the west side of South Street, and develop an area in which school children can enjoy and learn from planting and the seasons as species flower in turn to provide constant change. The Glade will also provide planned habitat provision for appropriate species as advised by local experts. Jamie Garget the tree officer at Havant Borough Council will provide guidance for trees protected by Tree Preservation Orders, and their maintenance to sustain them to the best possible effect.

2 Postcode Publications Alan Mak MP Report on my work locally and in Westminster Like many of you, over the last couple of months I ve been taking up the challenge of cutting out harmful single use plastics. Together with around 40 other MPs, for Lent I pledged to reuse plastic water bottles, use refillable coffee cups and avoid plastic cutlery. The aim was to raise awareness about the difficulties consumers face in going plastic free in everyday life. The amount of marine litter is increasing so much that floating continents have formed; one, in the Pacific Ocean, is bigger than France. Not only is it an environmental problem but it hits the economy, for instance it costs fisheries 62 million annually, and one in three fish caught in the English Channel contains pieces of plastic. Thankfully the Government is taking action, and recently unveiled its 25 year plan for improving the environment, outlining the ways in which the Government will work with communities and businesses to leave the environment in a better state for future generations. Thank you to everyone who came to my record breaking third MP s Jobs, Apprenticeships and Careers Fair in March. The Fair s success reflects the strength of our local economy, with firms from our area ADVERTISE WITH US AND BENEFIT YOUR COMMUNITY IN MORE WAYS THAN ONE contact: a.westbrook offering more than 500 jobs and apprenticeships on the day.

FINAL STRAW CLEAN UP CAMPAIGN We had hoped for ten to fifteen people to turn up and help on the morning of our first beach clean on the 18th February, but we were overwhelmed with a crowd seventyfive strong amazing volunteers An Oarsome Day For Local Business some of which are pictured above standing behind a proportion of the bags of rubbish we collected. Many more were still breaking their backs picking up litter and didn't want to stop for the photo Send your articles and pictures to us and see them in print Contact: An interesting insight into Oarsome Chance was on the agenda for a group of employees from Pfizer who gave up their time to help the local charity help build equipment and prepare boat hulls to render them fit for the water. Oarsome Chance is a unique charity with a base in Havant aiming to help young people re-engage with mainstream education and employability prospects. In their workshop at the Apex Centre in Havant, they provide experiences such as building projects on coastal rowing boats with an aim to getting them out onto the open PAGE: 2 John Gillard, principal at Oarsome Chance, Pfizer volunteers. with Stuart McClellan, Trustee at Oarsome Chance water. These activities are available to young people who for reasons of ability or circumstance would not otherwise have access to these facilities. The charity aims to encourage the use of the local coastal waters through the sports of sailing and rowing to create a pathway of opportunity for disadvantaged 9-19 year olds to enhance their life skills and improve their route to employability. Pfizer take part in a rolling program of volunteering events around the Havant area organised by Community First and have helped many charities and organisations. They agreed to help Oarsome Chance with various tasks in their workshop including sanding an old 2-person scull rowing boat that has been donated to the charity, building furniture and dismantling old bikes for the students to utilise the parts. Mary-Anne a volunteer from Pfizer said, It was an inspiring day and lovely to see people with a passion for helping others. I ve been happy to give up my time to help in any way we can for local children and worthwhile projects in the community. Stuart from Oarsome Chance was extremely grateful for Pfizer s support saying The group from Pfizer were such lovely people, extremely helpful and ideal role models. They are a brilliant example of showing the numerous different pathways our children can take to achieve a career within a large organisation, we thank them for giving up their time for Oarsome Chance. Without the support of local businesses many charity and community groups would struggle.

3 The countdown to cracking down on fraudulent whiplash claims has been announced by the Government. Their aim? To set fixed amounts for compensation. Although figures have not yet been finalised, these fixed amounts will be significantly lower than the amount of compensation that is currently being awarded by the courts. Here are a few possible examples: Injury Duration Current Levels New Fixed Amount 0-3 months 2, months 2, months 3,450 1, months 4,850 3,725 In addition, if the claim settles for 5,000 or less, the victim will not be able to recover their solicitors costs from the insurers. And yet the insurance companies representing the defendant will be able to afford legal representation. Hardly fair! Make no mistake, these reforms will have a huge impact on all motorists, motorcyclists, and cyclists who are genuinely injured on our roads through no fault of their own. With no legal representation, the victim s position is severely prejudiced and their claim Vicki Wright, Personal Injury Solicitor is likely to settle at a significant undervalue. As a result of these reforms, says the Government, the motorist can look forward to an average of 35 reduction in their insurance premium. Good news? No, it is not - this has been promised in the past and I personally have not seen any reductions and frankly, I doubt very much that the insurance companies will pass this new reduction on either. Why should they? There is nothing to force them to do so. I do accept that fraudulent claims are made. But when claims are submitted to the insurers, they could defend it if they believe it is fraudulent. It is easy. They simply deny liability, leave it to the claimant to issue court proceedings and then a Judge decides who he/she believes. This seems obvious to me. But instead, over the years, insurers have fuelled the situation, which they themselves are now complaining about, by settling claims and even making offers to settle claims without the claimant producing any kind of medical evidence whatsoever. And the Government could do more by banning cold calling with immediate effect. How many calls have you received asking if you can be assisted in recovering compensation for injuries sustained in a road traffic accident that never happened? Yes, steps should be taken to reduce the compensation culture that does exist but these proposals will have a disproportionate impact on the many thousands of motorists who are genuinely injured every year on our roads through no fault of their own. These changes are likely to be implemented by April The message is clear. If you are involved in a road traffic accident through no fault of your own, seek legal advice immediately. Raising awareness for Cystic Fibrosis families - Wear Yellow Day 22nd June Cystic fibrosis is a rare inherited progressive condition, caused by a faulty gene which is carried by one in twenty-five of us. For over thirty years, a small group of parents, relatives and friends have met nearly every month, to support the aims of the national charity. Some of us are now in our seventies and eighties, but we're still active, and do what we can, when we can. Thanks to the Pfizer Havant Community Fund, we're able to raise awareness, particularly in June, when we have Cystic Fibrosis Week, including Wear Yellow Day, on 22 June. The fund has enabled us to 'grow' the event, with help from THE CAT & RABBIT RESCUE CENTRE Hulky Bear Good day from your favourite out and about reporter at the Cat and Rabbit Rescue Centre, Hulky Bear. I hope you all have had a fantastic Easter break. We have had lots of new rabbits and guinea pigs arrive at The Centre over the last few months. I thought to help them feel more at home I would arrange a little welcome party for them. I decided on a sort of Easter Egg Hunt but instead of eggs I used extra vegetables we have been kindly donated and hay bundles that our kind volunteers have been making up as parcels. I hid them all around their pens and they had great time hunting for them. I like to welcome all the new arrivals and make sure everyone is happy. I had a thought if you are going away for your holidays any time soon we would love to hear from you. If you get time please send me a postcard the Emirates Spinnaker Tower which has lit up yellow for us in the past few years. Last year we received tremendous support from the Mayor of Havant, the local libraries, and from people in the borough, who organised events. Our thanks to them all. Recently there have been Christmas fairs, a jumble sale, and other events where we help out by visiting, buying, and/or publicizing. This year, a community petition, led by mothers Gemma Weir and Michelle Frank, resulted in a debate in parliament about access to modern precision medications - which are invariably effective but expensive - Pet of the month - Iru Bru and let me know where you are. I can make a collection that my friends and I can look at. Some sad news one of my out and about friends Michael passed away recently. He spent most of his time running our barn checking everything was running well. He was loved by us all at The Centre and he will be very much missed by us all. Some happier news we have a new arrival of the human kind at The Centre. Our new manager Dave joined the team. I of course made sure he had a great Hulky Bear of a welcome. Take care and see you next month If you are interested in adopting a cat, kitten, rabbit or guinea pig then please call us here at the centre on between 9-4pm during the week. PS: We have a Viewing Day Saturday 28th April 12-2pm. Viewing days are nonappointment days so people thinking of adopting a cat can pop along. Otherwise we re-home 7 days a week by appointment only. an issue for us all in this new era of medicine. Havant and the surrounding area was particularly supportive - perhaps because we've been active for over fifty years. There are two or more Cystic Fibrosis charities in the area: a large clinic at Queen Alexandra Hospital, research at the university, and brilliant local newspapers. We are grateful to our MP, Alan Mak for supporting us. This year, we'll hopefully display more banners, and ask people to wear something yellow, to show support for over 10,000 people in UK who live with Cystic Fibrosis, and its unrelenting demand for daily This month allow us to introduce you to Iru Bru, an 11 month old male, ginger and white guinea pig. He arrived at the centre with his brother after his original owner became ill. Unfortunately Iru Bru did not get on with his brother and he had to be re-homed separately so Iru Bru is now looking for a new home with a new male guinea pig. He is happy to be handled and enjoys the company of the staff. We would love to find him a new friend. We can arrange bonding of your male at the centre. If you think you may be able to give Iru Bru the new home he deserves please give The Centre a call. We can then explain the bonding procedure with you. treatment. Sue Kruk, who is secretary of the branch, will take part in the May Days Arts Trail, on Hayling Island on the weekend of 12-13th May. She sells her cards and prints in aid of the Trust, and will have some free postcards for people to send or put in their windows. The first design shows a yellow rose, and the date, as ' sixty five roses' have become symbolic of Cystic Fibrosis charities across the world.

THE PROBUS CLUB OF HAVANT At the Annual General Meeting held recently, the Chairman, John Moore, reflected on another successful year for The Probus Club of Havant. Numbers of members, and the Club s finances, remained in a healthy position. Additional visits had been made to a number of local hostelries, and at the monthly meetings, talks had been successfully arranged on a wide range of subjects, including Vietnam, the Quaker movement, RN Boys, Kings Theatre etc. Founded in 1975, the Probus Club of Havant offers a social meeting place for retired PROfessional and BUSiness people in the area. New members are always welcome. We meet at Denvilles Club, 33, Emsworth Road, Havant, on the first Monday of the month.

4 Postcode Publications CRAFT BEERS - Enjoy your Local Ales Sour Beers the Next Big Thing? Businesses are always looking for new products to tempt customers. Every week hundreds of new lines are launched and consumer magazines are full of enticing new goods to tempt the shopper. Breweries are no different and having weaned people off bland industrial lager onto heavily hopped American style Pale Ale many are thinking of where to go next. In the USA, where most new trends originate, the next big thing in brewing is sour ales, some of which may also be barrel aged. In the old days all beers were sour, due to fermentation from wild air borne yeasts and were stored in barrels. The isolation of yeast by Louis Pasteur in 1857, improvements in brewing science and the development of metal casks and kegs put an end to this style of beer. An exception was in Belgium where craft brewers carried on brewing in the traditional way which involved fermenting beer with wild airborne yeasts and then maturing it in wooden barrels. Lambic and Gueuze are Belgian styles of naturally fermented, barrel aged beers. Brewers from all over the world have looked to these traditional Belgian styles for inspiration when brewing their own sour beers. Sour beers are neither top fermented as with most ales, nor bottom fermented, as with lagers. In practice most modern sour beers will have yeast added as well as undergoing spontaneous fermentation. I have recently sampled an international selection of sour beers and here are my tasting notes. Thornbridge Tart Bakewell Sour 6% abv. (UK) Thornbridge are one of Britain s most innovative brewers and offer many different PAGE: 4 styles of beer. They are based in Bakewell, Derbyshire and started up in This beer, which is named after a local dessert, the Bakewell Tart, pours a light yellow colour and has a lemon aroma. The beer has a tart, refreshing lemonish taste but is not specifically sour. At 6% abv. it is not really a session beer but is very thirst quenching and would make a pleasant drink to sip on a hot summers day. Rodenbach Classic Flanders Red Ale 5.2% (Belgium) This is the real thing, a genuine, Belgian, barrel aged sour beer. The beer is matured in oak vats for up to two years and then is blended with fresh beer. Rodenbach are based in Roeselare, which is in the west of Belgium, and were formed in It differs from the Lambic and Gueuze beers in that it is a red ale with a more acetic taste. Rodenbach pours a reddish brown colour and has a distinctly balsamic vinegar aroma. It has a very distinctive taste which can only be described as sweet and sour. This beer is very refreshing although its unique taste will not be to everyone s liking. Personally I think this beer has a real depth of character but By David Harris, Member of the British Guild of Beer Writers - not likely to become a best seller. Tiny Rebel Mojita Sour. 3.5% abv. (Wales) Tiny Rebel are based in Newport, South Wales and rose to fame in 2015 when they won the Champion Beer of Britain award, which was a tremendous achievement for a business that had only been founded in Mojita Sour pours a pale yellow with a lemon peel aroma. It has a very tart, sour, lip puckering taste which reminded me of home-made lemonade. It is flavoured with peppermint and Kaffir lime leaves. At only 3.5% abv. this would make a splendid session beer to drink on the beach. To Øl Sur Simcoe Session Pale Ale 4.5% abv. (Denmark/Belgium) This beer is brewed by the De Proef brewery in Belgium on behalf of Danish brewers. The beer pours a light straw colour with a citrus aroma. It has a delicate lemon/lime flavour and is the least sour of the beers I have sampled. To Øl are what is known as a gypsy brewer in that they do not own a brewery but contract their beers out to other brewers. They were founded in Copenhagen in 2010 and now export to over 40 countries. To Øl have a brew pub in Copenhagen which offers 32 different types of beer on tap. Goose Island Sofie Belgian Style Farmhouse Ale % abv. (USA) This beer is brewed in Chicago by one of the first pioneering craft breweries in the USA. They started with a brew-pub in 1988 and expanded in 1995 when they built a large brewery. Since 2011 Goose Island has been owned by global brewers AB-Inbev. The beer pours a pale straw colour with a gentle fruity aroma. The taste is quite complex with orange, pepper and vanilla notes. White Hag Irish Brewing Company, The Puca Dry Hopped Lemon Sour Beer (with Berry, Hibiscus and Ginger) 3.5% (Ireland) In the Sept/Oct 2017 edition of Postcode I sampled a number of very interesting Irish beers. Therefore I was pleased to try another Irish brew from this Sligo based brewer who started brewing in The Puca pours the colour of rose wine and has a complex fruit aroma. The taste is really intriguing with lemon, berry fruits and hibiscus flavours coming though. This is a very unusual beer but very enjoyable and a beer you could offer to someone who claims not to like beer. Beer Facts and Figures The biggest month for beer sales is December when twice as much beer is sold than in January which is the quietest month. 74% of all beer sold in the UK is lager. In 1970 lager had only 7% of the beer market. Draught beer sold in pubs accounts for 45% of all beer sales. Bottled beer accounts for 22% and cans make up 33% of beer sales. The UK imports over 10 million Hectolitres of beer each year We import beer mainly from Belgium, France, Ireland, Italy and Netherlands. Beer exports from the UK are around 6 million hectolitres. Britain s biggest export markets for beer are France, Ireland and the USA. The average wages for pub staff are: f/t bar staff 16,600 p.a., pub manager 25,000 p.a., chef 19,000 p.a. David Wilson Homes Showcases Construction Careers to Local Pupils School children in Havant have had a chance to find out about careers in the construction industry thanks to David Wilson Homes. Students from The Cowplain School in Waterlooville, who have been attending a construction skills course at the Apex Centre run by Park Community School, visited the company s Berewood Heath development this week to find out about the many jobs involved in the construction industry. They were given the opportunity to learn about roles in everything from groundworks, brickworks and carpentry to plumbing, electrics and sales. The pupils, aged 15 and 16, also heard about the various pathways to a career in construction, including apprenticeships. Anthony Dimmick, community liaison manager at David Wilson Homes (third from left), said the talk was designed to give the pupils a real understanding of the varied roles within the construction industry and how all roles are crucial in creating a successful new development. The pupils were aware that there are different roles on site but I think we showed them that construction is extremely diverse and we need a real variety of skills for the future, he said. As a leading house-builder we are keen to showcase great careers to those considering their futures now and hope that this project has encouraged some of these pupils to follow a career in construction. Claire Dodd, Senior Pastoral Leader at The Cowplain School in Waterlooville said, It is always extremely useful for pupils to gain a real insight into the workplace and it s great that companies such as David Wilson Homes can offer this kind of opportunity. During their visit, the pupils had the unique opportunity to see behind the scenes at the Berewood Heath development, which is bringing much-needed new homes to the area.

What a difference, the weather turned stormy, and what with the darkening sky and the trees whining as they violently brushed and scraped on each other in the fierce wind, the copse took on a totally different atmosphere, haunting, spooky and menacing. The perfect setting for Mulberry Cottage! I went home and started writing... After finally finding the strength to walk out of an abusive marriage Maggie is looking desperately to make a new beginning, and to hopefully regain her badly shattered confidence and selfesteem, when she stumbles across Mulberry Cottage. Maggie loves the place immediately and feels uncannily drawn to the pretty thatched cottage, but all is not what it seems. It doesn t take long for the feeling of peace and serenity that she initially felt to turn to pure terror and she realises that perhaps living alone and isolated wasn t one of her brighter ideas. Having poured all her resources into the property she has no choice but to stay, but to continue to live in Mulberry Cottage she will draw on every bit of courage that she can muster.

The thought of going self-employed often evokes a feeling of tangible excitement mixed with genuine fear. However, the more consideration you can give to the job of running your business, the more likely you are to succeed. You should ask yourself: Are you the sort of person who can succeed in business? Have you any funds you can put into the business? Are you familiar with the legal requirements that will be placed on you as a business proprietor? Have you considered how much you will earn during your first year? Do you need help raising finance for your business? After business expenses, including taxation and national insurance, have you estimated what your salary and profit could be? By Paul Underwood, Director Have you considered how you can minimise your tax liability so that you keep more of what you earn? Have you considered how technology can benefit your business? There are many other matters you will need to consider before going into business. These include: Registering as self-employed with HMRC Working out whether you need to register for VAT Opening a business bank account Insuring your new business Keeping up-to-date financial records.

7 A Positive Start for Mill Rythe Junior School Volunteers from Community First s Positive Pathways project and Growing Together (a partnership between Hayling Horticultural Society and Hayling Schools) spent the morning helping prepare the grounds at Mill Rythe Junior School on Hayling Island to clear space for a new poly-tunnel to help schoolchildren plant and grow fruit, vegetables and flowers. Positive Pathways is a Community First supported volunteering project helping those who have support needs or lack confidence to take part in team volunteering in the community, gaining a range of skills by carrying out activities such as befriending, gardening, conservation work and painting of community venues.volunteers also build their social and communication skills by attending tailored training and working as part of a team. Volunteers worked with Bill, Ray and Clive from Growing Together cutting back trees and brambles to clear a large area for the polytunnel. Ina Allum, Positive Pathways Co-ordinator from Community First, said the volunteers did a fantastic job, cutting back trees and brambles and clearing scrub, which will enable Growing Together to come in and remove the tree stumps ready for us to level the ground for the poly-tunnel.the Growing Together team are great fun and the volunteers enjoyed working with them. The Positive Pathways volunteers, with Clive from Growing Together (red braces, kneeling) and Beverley Palmer from Community First (white top, front) Teacher Mike Darby who is heading the school garden project said the Positive Pathways volunteers have really helped, it s great to see a project that helps so many people in different ways.their partnership with the Growing Together project has benefited several schools on Hayling already, and we are looking forward to working with them in the future while we are establishing our new garden area.

8 Postcode Publications A Friday bike ride for new-riders By Mike Skiffins and Sarah Calton Your local cycle club, Portsmouth CTC has introduced a regular ride on alternate Fridays aimed at new riders, and those who only want to ride a short distance. Although the rides are regular, it is not like a class where you have to turn up every time, but if you enjoy the ride and the company you may well want to. The rides are organised, and led, by Sarah and Martin Calton who have both worked in the fitness industry for over 15years, where they have helped people from all ages and abilities improve their fitness, health and well-being. They only took up cycling about four years ago, and in that short space of time found that the benefits from just being outside and socialising with others, made a big difference to their own lifestyle. They both found a way to slow down and just 'BE'. Although in the fitness industry already, they slowly started to improve their own fitness on the bike, starting from a small journey out on flat roads, to being able to enter Sportives, with an average 40mile course which included hills like Harting. The logical step about two years ago was to join the CTC, and after this they realised that they could also help others get out and enjoy the rides as much as they did. That was when they approached the CTC about becoming Ride Leaders, and after guidance and training asked about starting a fortnightly beginners ride with a half hour break for refreshment stop which might be a sandwich, or just cake. The rides would be open to any one from any background, each ride would give the member confidence just to get outside and ride a bike, which in turn would not only The Spring Arts and Heritage Centre in Havant has been awarded a 57,100 National Lottery grant through the Heritage Lottery Fund to record and celebrate the history of Havant and Waterlooville Football Club. The project will tell the story of the club since the merger of Havant FC and Waterlooville FC in 1998 and also track the development of football in the borough following the formation of Havant FC in The stories of fans, staff and players will be collected by volunteers and used to create a book and short documentary film to be premièred at The Spring. A group of young people will also be mentored by film production company Millstream Productions to make a second film focusing on Havant and Waterlooville s famous FA Cup run ten years ago when the club received national attention after twice taking the lead at Anfield, home of five times European Champions Liverpool.

The rides are not designed to be too strenuous, and are a lot of fun. Sarah says 'We were overwhelmed by the uptake of these rides, as well as the fact that we were also getting more ladies out on their bikes which is fantastic to see'. Martin and Sarah want to thank everyone for their support those who nominated them to become leaders as well as everyone who comes along to each ride. The aim of these Friday rides is to encourage an active community; as long as you have a bike then anyone is welcome. Its not about the speed, or the bike or even putting on the dreaded Lycra, it's about getting out there on whatever bike you have and just enjoying the company. The fitness element is just an added bonus. (And of course the CAKE). Sarah adds 'We look forward to seeing more riders join us on our Friday adventures'. Details of the rides are on the club website 57,100 HERITAGE LOTTERY FUND GRANT story of the football club to be recorded permanently in the venue s museum. Sophie Fullerlove, Director of The Spring Arts and Heritage Centre, said: The 20th anniversary of the formation of Havant and Waterlooville FC is a perfect opportunity to undertake research into the history of the club. The project will enable our museum to offer visitors a comprehensive record of the development of football in the borough and celebrate the role the football club plays in the wider community. Trevor Brock, Secretary of Havant and Waterlooville FC, said: We are delighted The Spring Arts and Heritage Centre has been awarded this grant to enable the history of the club to be researched and celebrated. We are looking forward to participating in the project and hearing the stories of fans, staff and players. Hawks fans got an opportunity to contribute to the project by visiting a roadshow held in The Westleigh Pub at the team s Westleigh Park stadium before the home game with St Albans City on Saturday 14th April.

SEND YOUR SPORTS STORIES TO US AND SEE THEM IN PRINT FISHY from Fred Monk Horizon Angling Club For The Disabled STORIES It was a decent turnout for Round two at Three Oaks Fishery. Thanks to everyone who came along on the day. Despite several days of sub-zero temperatures, snow, ice and a biting north-east wind, things improved on the day and 8 members turned out to fish with some mixed fortunes. Bites and fish were hard to come by on the top lake where Mike Waite, John Forster, Team Parkin (Sue with help from Paul) and Denis Bloodworth managed a few silvers. Denis was fresh from his weekend exploits which produced a splendid nine and a half pound carp in a blizzard session at Havant but no such luck at Denmead! Derek and brother Alan fared better on the bottom lake choosing to fish the sheltered swims out of the cold wind. Alan caught silvers steadily on pole and maggot including a lovely half pound roach, while Derek started on a mini feeder with double maggot to land skimmers to one pound nine ounces plus a bonus small common carp early in the day before switching to his pole and adding some decent roach. Thanks to Denny Horn and John Robinson who both looked in to see how we were all doing and to add their moral support. The day s You ve Been Framed moment (we always get one) came when I lost my footing on the slippery, boggy, muddy slope while trying to get back up from the bottom lake to check on the others on the top lake. Very muddy gear straight in the wash!

Contact Louise to book now Havant Academy Telephone AUCTIONEER & ANTIQUES ENTHUSIAST HILARY BOLT on HOUSE CALLS & CLEARANCES Over the last twenty years I ve been lucky enough to turn a life-long interest in old things into two of my current day jobs auctioneering in Emsworth Auctions and running an antiques and collectables shop, Emsworth Antiques Etc. in the town s West Street. These days, I spend quite a lot of time in other people s bedrooms and sheds, as well as various local self-storage facilities. The requests for visits cover a number of purposes : a collector who want to sell past treasures, impending down-sizing, the items which won t fit in after down-sizing, dealing with the contents of a relative s home either in situ or having been brought away to be dealt with. My mission is to assess the items for purchase, or to triage them for the owner to put into our auction, or to provide a partial or complete clearance service. Whilst not everything I am shown is to my taste, the previous owner had probably loved it for some reason, and my involvement takes the items a step closer to the next person who will love or use them in turn. I can afford to be objective, whereas the person who has asked for my help has all sorts of memories and sentiment attached to the goods I am being shown. My advice is that if you re not ready to let them go yet, hold onto them a while longer rather than regret their absence. But if you ve been storing Aunt Aggie s boxes for fourteen years, remind yourself that she wouldn t have wished her bequest to be a burden, and you really shouldn t feel guilty about moving her possessions along. Someone else WILL love them in time. Meanwhile, if I may - a couple of important points when arranging clearances at any level: Present an accurate picture hold the family gatherings to decide who wants to keep what before you call us in. It doesn t matter if the items have not been removed yet, but we do need to know exactly what we are dealing with. Once a price has been agreed, please do not remove items. If you decide you want to keep the cranberry glasses after all, please understand that has to change the financial agreement. Try not to sound aggrieved when told so. And remember that most of us live with well-worn possessions which are really not suitable for re-sale at all, and for which there will be costs for disposal. All that has to be put in the balance. We always make sure that any personal documents we find are returned, and that we treat our clients premises with the respect we would hope for ourselves in due course. A couple of years ago my daughter said she couldn t decide what to get me for my birthday, and almost decided on a skip! Dear child. PAGE: 9

PAGE: 12 Will there ever be a time when we don t hear about the state of social care in our country? How the elderly and vulnerable are being treated without respect and dignity, and even worse abused? It s terrifying to think that in 2018 we are still having these issues and that it seems to be getting worse with no answers, as to help the aging population that we live in. I ve worked for over 25years in the health and social care sector in various settings, and have witness the changes and challenges it presents. In January 2011, I decided that I would like to make a difference. I knew that it wouldn t fix the problem however I hoped (and thankfully I do) help some people to have the care and help at home that they need. When talking to my customers and community groups about what they would like their homecare to be like, there were always the same responses: Wanting to know the person who was coming NOT having different people all the time What time they were coming Actually doing what they wanted and needed on that day and not just working from care/ support plans Being able to talk to someone who would actually do something if there was a problem Not to feel rushed To be cared for in their own homes and for it to be affordable To be treated like a human being! WOW! Not rocket science, not ground breaking, just perfectly doable simple things that make a huge difference! My customers get all of these things and more. We support them with all the household tasks, personal care, socialising, gardening, and friendship, whatever they need to live happily, independently and safely in their own homes. The support is ever evolving to meet their needs. I love what I do and I am passionate about care and support. Caring for people in a way that gives them a excellent quality of life, is so rewarding. If this has resonated with anyone then I would love to chat with you - Sonya North: /

LANGSTONE CUTTERS GIG CLUB Langstone Cutters Gig Club is Hampshire s first Cornish Pilot Gig Club and they have been introducing gig rowing and racing to the local community since They are based at Northney Marina on Hayling Island and row all year round in the beautiful waters of Chichester and Langstone Harbours. A Community Rowing Club run by volunteers with around 130 members of all ages from 12 to 80 years old, which include all levels of fitness and ability. They row traditional Cornish Pilot Gigs which were originally used as lifeboats and to ferry pilots out to incoming vessels along the Scilly Isles and South West coast. These are beautiful, traditionally built six oared boats and the club currently own three wooden racing gigs Heart of Hayling, Spirit of Langstone and Star of Northney along with two GRP training gigs CShel and Islander. Club membership consists of both recreational rowers and those who wish to race in regattas along the Jurassic Coast into Devon and Cornwall throughout the summer, and in the World Pilot Gig Championships held in the Isles of Scilly every May. The club takes part in a number of Jurassic regattas and also the Great River Race, The Hamble River Raid and they also host their own yearly Junior Sprint event at Whale Island with clubs coming from Devon, Dorset and Cornwall. As well as the fitness and competitive side, and the joy of being out in the fresh air yearround, members enjoy the camaraderie of being part of a team, both in and out of the boat. In addition, they have an excellent programme of social events which are always well attended by members and their families. The club recently received funding from Sport England to purchase a new GRP training gig. This new GRP gig will enable the club to further develop it s on water training throughout the year, and therefore increase the numbers of people that are able to enjoy the wonderful waters of Chichester and Langstone Harbour. Members were invited to submit ideas and a ballot was held of the top four favourites. The result was that the new boat will be called "Islander." Gig Rowing is Britain s fastest growing water sport and the club is a BBC Get Inspired Partner. Havant Borough Sports Association recently awarded the Gig Club a Team of the Year Award and they finished third in the highly competitive 2017 Jurassic League. Langstone Cutters Gig Club welcomes new members irrespective of age or fitness. Your first visit will be free and all you need to be is keen to row! Please contact either Brian on or Jackie on who would love to hear from you, and we can get you booked into a free session. PAGE: 13

14 Postcode Publications From Orphan to Mayor in easy stages Episode Four - I retired from Pall Aerospace in December 2000, aged 59. One of my first actions was to set up a Consultancy "KPS Enterprises" so that I could continue to work with my long term business partners. I thoroughly enjoyed this activity and with very little effort, obtained a contract to supply troop seats for the new Merlin Helicopter. A million pound contract which financed my KPSE activities for the next four years. It was thanks to Hazel that I discovered a new and very unexpected opportunity. She had read in the local paper that Chichester Festival Theatre (CFT) were looking for amateur actors for a new community play, Barchester Chronicles, and suggested that I apply. I had had no acting experience, in fact, had never been on stage, but to my amazement, I was offered not one but two parts! I was little more than portable furniture, no lines to learn. Nevertheless I found Barchester Chronicles quite demanding but the experience was fantastic and I made friends with other cast members which would last throughout my short but exciting acting career. My next performance was at the South Downs Open Air Theatre. I was to play Bardolph in The Merry Wives of Windsor. Shakespeare no less! If I knew little about acting I knew even less about Shakespeare, as became clear during one rehearsal. After we d run through a scene the Director called me over and said: Ken, that last little line of yours, it was intended to be a joke! Well, Shakespearean jokes are notoriously difficult to spot anyway, that was my excuse! In 2002 I was invited back to the CFT and this time I was chosen for a principal part in The Devil s Dancing Hour, a drama about the Civil War when Cromwell and his troops invaded and held the city of Chichester to ransom. I was cast as Sir Thomas Bowyer (Hazel called me Sir Sausage at home!). When it came to the production I had the full costume, sword, swagger, hat with plumes and everything. It was a really fantastic experience. The atmosphere at CFT was always friendly. That s what made it such a pleasure. The next play was The Roses of Eyam by Don Taylor which took place in the Singleton Ken as Sir George Saville - Roses of Eam PAGE: 14 & Downlands open air museum utilising the fantastic collection of 16th and 17th century buildings. As you may know, The Roses of Eyam is a very moving tale of the Derbyshire village where a ream of cloth was purchased by the village tailor. Unfortunately the cloth came from London and was impregnated by the Great Plague which caused much suffering and many deaths in the village. I had two roles, Sir George Saville, patron of the Rector of Eyam, and William Thornley, a member of a prominent Eyam family. A very enjoyable experience, acting in the open air but quite demanding on a windy evening. Next was the famous musical Cabaret at CFT. I had a number of roles but, principally, I was a patron of the nightclub. I was even allowed to sing, albeit as part of the chorus. Great stuff! It was a real privilege to be on stage and share dressing rooms with professionals. My last production was Marlowe s Doctor Faustus. The play started in the Chichester Minerva Theatre and from there it together with the audience moved out and into the streets of Chichester, up to the Cross and then along to the Cathedral, the final scene being at the altar. My role was to be one of six narrators. I had the opening line at the Minerva, and the last line at the Altar. Just before opening night the director came up to me and said: Ken, I saw you arriving in your little red MG, do you think we could use it in the play? I asked him what he wanted to do with it and he said: Well, if you agree, you can be dressed up as a minor demon and chauffeur the Devil to and from the Cross. Of course, I said I d be delighted and so, before each performance, my car was positioned at the ready in a pub car park in North Street (it had been equipped with false plates reading DEV 1 L, what else?). According to plan I had to drive up North Street, with lights flashing and music blaring, pick up the actor playing the Devil, drive him round the side streets to Chichester Cross, leave him there, drive away and then wait for my cue to return to pick him up again at the Cross and take him to the Cathedral. One night I was sitting in West Street, Chichester, my car facing the wrong way in the one-way system on double yellow lines, when a young policeman came strolling along. I thought: This looks ominous, a demon sitting in a car with false plates, facing the wrong way. Well, the constable walked up to me and said: Excuse me sir, you can t park there. I said I m very sorry officer, but this is the Devil s chariot and I m his demon driver waiting for him. So he said, rather decently I thought: Oh, well OK then, and walked away! As I ve had the last line of the play. In the cathedral it was very quiet, dark and spooky. I came on stage holding a candle by this time Faustus has gone to the devil and having delivered my closing line, I blew out the candle and the play ended. It was very dramatic. I really enjoyed my acting career but that came to an end when I was elected as a Havant Borough Councillor. I knew anyway that I couldn t last very much longer in the theatre because I was finding it difficult to learn all the lines! The life story of Councillor Ken Smith Politics Having spent my business life travelling the world I decided to become more involved with the local community. I d always had an interest in political affairs and now wanted to give something back into the community. In 2003 I applied to the Conservative Association and became a member of the Party for the first time. In 2004 I stood as a candidate in the local elections for the Bedhampton ward of Havant Borough Council where there hadn t been a Conservative Councillor in the ward for at least twelve years. To my amazement I won the seat, although with a very slim majority. I m proud to say that I have increased my majority in every election and in 2016, secured 51% of the vote. I felt very happy and privileged. Back in 2004 the first thing I was asked to do was to find local people to form a committee with me as chairman to spend a new grant called Liveability. This had been voted in by Tony Blair s Labour government to benefit local communities. In our case it meant we had 1.1 million to spend on local projects, and as with much local funding, it had to be spent within the allocated year or it was forfeited. I duly formed a committee and we spent our allocated budget There are many examples around Havant where improvements were made which might otherwise never have attracted funding. One highlight of my time on the council came in 2007 when Havant received a visit by HRH Princess Anne. As the relevant portfolio holder, it was my privilege to escort her to see the work we were doing to motivate young people to acquire working skills. The following year I was invited to attend a ceremony in Portsmouth where the Military Attaché of Malaysia invested surviving British servicemen who had served in the Borneo/Malaysia/ Singapore region with the Malaysia Pingat Jasa medal for helping to save his country from Communism and I was honoured to be a recipient. In 2010 I was elected as the Deputy Mayor of Havant, and the following year Hazel and I became Mayor and Mayoress. This was the pinnacle of my political career and a proud achievement. Hazel and I enjoyed a very busy and exceedingly rewarding year during which time we attended over 400 engagements and raised over 26,000 for our selected charities. A year later I was asked to become President of the Havant branch of the Royal British Legion, a position I still hold with pride. Today, I remain a local councillor involved with the management of Langstone and Chichester harbours. I also chair the council s Governance & Audit Committee. These activities keep my brain ticking over! I also keep in touch with old comrades from my RAF Halton days. We have a major reunion at Halton every three years and I m an active member of the South Coast old boys branch which meets monthly at the Tangmere Aviation Museum. I am also a member of the Royal Airforce Association, the Aircrew Association and the National Malaya and Borneo Veterans Association. Last Recollections In 1989 I qualified for a Private Pilot s License. Hazel and I flew to the Alps that summer and had a wonderful vacation. In fact, Hazel learned how to take off and land plus use the radio for our self-preservation and protection, should anything untoward happen to me whilst we were in the air! I had part ownership in two aeroplanes, a Piper PA38 (G-PRIM) and a Cessna 172 (G- BEMB). I flew for nearly twenty years during which I gained an instrument rating which enabled me to fly on business trips. But when I passed sixty the medicals became very onerous and because I had a suspected heart problem, the authorities said I couldn t fly unless I was accompanied by a safety pilot. I never took to that idea so I retired. Living by the sea, we also enjoyed playing about in boats. We owned a beautiful Westerly Tiger named Ocelot and, a little later, we had a fast motor cruiser called Hey Jude. All in all I have enjoyed a very fortunate life, notwithstanding a couple of real personal tragedies. Compared with much of humanity that s not bad going, at least I think so. Beginnings and endings Happy times Sons Ian and Mark with Hazel and Ken you can t escape them. You just have to be thankful for the time in between, and I surely am!

15 much more than just a school Park Community School news Park Race for the Line... Race at our Place Our annual Race at Our Place in aid of Cancer Research took place on the 29th March. This year the rain might have put people off but it did not. We ran and many came to watch. Thank you if you were one of those. Georgie Harris from Park Community School, who is the driving force behind this event said: Having lived in Leigh Park all my life and being an ex-student, I have a strong connection with park students and I feel its massively important for the students and the community to feel proud of where they are from and this kind of event certainly helps to promote that. Headteacher, Christopher Anders said: For many staff and students the Race at Our Place is a highlight of the school year. The number of students who run and walk is a very special part of our school. It is one of those times when the difference between our school and others is clear to see. The sense of excitement and fun before the race as well as along the route is fantastic. The sense of achievement experienced by all participants is obvious at the finish line and in the conversations which take place back at school. Hampshire Music Festival Primary Children s Workshop A wonderful afternoon of musical fun was had by primary school children with World of Music on Saturday 17th March 2018 at Park Community School s Dickinson Centre. As part of the Havant Music Festival, the children were encouraged to learn new skills whilst having fun playing unusual instruments such as steel pans and harps amongst many others. Max said It was awesome. My best bit was playing the harp and singing, and I loved making the didgeridoo. Race for the Line On Thursday, 15th March, the whole of Year 7 took part in the Race for the Line competition. This involved them designing and making a rocket car during Technology lessons. This is a national competition in conjunction with the Bloodhound team who are aiming to get their rocket car to 1,000mph. Navy personnel conducted the races and each class of Year 7 joined them outside on the MUGA to witness their rocket cars racing against others. It was a very exciting day for all of Year 7 and was amazing to see the range of cars produced. Only one team can get through to the next round, which is held in April at Portsmouth naval base. Last year we were very successful and got to the National final, eventually coming fourth overall in the country. The top speed this year was 51.19mph and our winning team was Bumper, a car made by Lewis and Lenny. Fingers crossed for the next round!

16 Postcode Publications Don t stop Wining Full Bodied Wines love em or loath em Part 1 Tannin - This time I explore reasons why some wines are heavy while some are lighter. The are many different wines on the market today from all over the world and when people come into my shop and ask for a good wine the question I always ask is what style of wine do you like? I can whittle this down to maybe four main styles which include heavy or light, dry or fruity. There is off course a fifth style which is sweet but that is a whole different kettle of fish. So, what makes a wine either heavy or light, dry or fruity? To be honest there is a whole combination of factors that affect the style and quality of a wine. From the weather to the soil to the different grape varieties and the wine-making practices, all these provide the overall make-up of the wine. With regards to the weight of the wine: i.e. full bodied or lighter, then there is one main characteristic of the wines which provides this answer and that is Tannin. Tannin is found naturally in some products, from beef to tea and oak, it also forms on the grapes, more evidently on red grapes. Wines which have been aged in oak will have more tannin. However, oak also gives wine a sweeter, fruitier character as vanillin is a natural extract from oak, so the wine might appear fruitier. There are two main characteristics that make up tannin, bitterness and astringency. Bitterness is easy to understand as its one of our four main taste buds, so we can taste bitterness quite easily. Astringency is different though. When a wine has a lot of tannin, it reacts with the molecules on your tongue and the inside of your mouth and these molecules become raised. You will feel a roughness on your tongue and you feel a dryness all over your mouth. Therefore, tannin can be attributed to the sense of touch as opposed to the sense of taste. In other words, you can feel tannin not taste it. The majority of reds with have some tannin to varying degrees but it s whether the tannins are balanced with the fruity element of the wine therefore you can t feel them as much or is the tannin in the wine so aggressive that it shouts obscenities at you as you take a sip! You will either prefer one or the other. If you don t like the heavy, full bodied reds but still want to try them then all is not loss. Having these styles of wines with food will reduce the tannin feel and soften the wine out. You will need something heavy like a good rich steak dish to stand up to Support your local Independents Shop Local PAGE: 16 By Jonathan Rogers of VIN Wine Merchants Emsworth the aggressive tannins, but they will calm down with food and make the wine much more approachable. Opening the wine up a good couple of hours before will also calm the tannins down as a small amount of oxygen enhances the characters of the wines while reducing the tannins. That s why sometimes when you go back to an opened bottle of red the next day it sometimes tastes better. Decanting the wine will also have the same effect. In the next issue I will discuss the fruitier element of wines but in the meantime, here are a couple of big tannic beasts for you to try from me: De Lucca Tannat Uruguay Campo Dorado Rioja Crianza Spain 8.99 Crianza wines have around a year or so in oak barrels so not a huge amount. This is silky with slightly more fruit but still enough weight to sink a small boat!! Pop into 6 Queen St., Emsworth, Hants PO10 7BL FREE WINE TASTINGS EVERY WEEKEND! The Tannat grape takes its name from Tannin so you can guess what this is going to be like. Its dry, full bodied with an underlying hint of fruit but it s also smooth on the finish. The Uruguayan wine makers live this style. Free tastings at the weekend or enjoy a glass in our upstairs wine bar area and courtyard. Fred s Food Hello, I'm Fred Duncannon, Coowner of Stansted Park Farm Shop, and I will be writing the new food column here based on seasonal, local produce. When you eat food in season, it's at Watercress We get our watercress from the Hairspring Watercress beds and it is one of the few crops that enjoys wet, cold weather; the occasional frost helps give it a peppery hit. It s packed full of vitamins and nutrients, with vibrant colour and a satisfying crunch. It is also seriously local, coming less than five miles away in Hambrook, in beds which have solid gravel bases and impermeable walls fed by natural spring water and deep boreholes during the drier months. All their watercress is cut and bunched by hand, then trimmed, labelled, washed and packed with ice. You can eat the watercress as a salad, in sandwiches or as soup and as it is stuffed full of vitamin C, it s ideal for helping keep the colds. It s also perfect for this seasonal recipe that uses South coast mackerel, chicory and oranges. 1 large orange 2 x mackerel fillets 2 heads chicory, trimmed 1 bunch of Hairspring watercress 1 tbsp olive oil 2 tsp wholegrain mustard 1 tsp clear honey Method Use a knife to remove the skin from the oranges, then cut between the white membranes to loosen the range segments. Once all the segments have been removed, squeeze the remaining piece of orange over a bowl to remove the juice and set aside. Break the chicory into leaves. Heat a frying it's tastiest, freshest and most nutritious. We have an amazing selection of food grown, farmed and fished on our doorstep, so I hope this helps you to fully enjoy it.

Mackerel, Orange and Watercress Salad Recipe Ingredients F A R M S T A N S T E D P A R K S H O P pan with a little oil over medium high heat. Lightly score the mackerel fillets on the skin side and season with pepper, then place skin side down in the frying pan for 2-3 minutes, then turn over for a further minute. Remove from pan. Arrange the watercress, chicory and orange segments into two bowls and place the mackerel on top. Whisk the reserved orange juice, oil, mustard and honey together with a little salt and freshly ground black pepper. Drizzle over the salad and serve.

18 Postcode Publications Health & Well-being by Denise Kelly Health and fitness in 2018 Mental Health problems are rife I am back out working in Dubai this week, which of course I love. I have been fortunate enough to have a three-hour lunch break at the beach, with a large coconut for my cocktail of choice and half a watermelon the size of the moon for lunch! For me it doesn t get much better than that Heat, sun and beautiful food! Paradise! The one thing that becomes more and more apparent to me as I trot round the globe giving health lectures and seeing clients from all Nationalities, is that it doesn t matter how wealthy you are, or what position you hold within your company, no one in this modern society is free from stress and anxiety. It s out of control. And what are we all striving for? Apparently the latest stats for the UK are one in four people suffering form serious mental health issues, and one in six people reporting experiencing a more common mental health problem such as anxiety and mild depression or feelings of low mood. This is a huge percentage of people. There is something very wrong with society, as we know it. I see lots of teenagers in my clinics now suffering from anxiety, and is it that our expectations of them are too high? Or, their expectations of themselves are too much? Five years ago I wasn t seeing even half the amount of people with these issues as I see now, so even in that relatively short space of time period things are changing rapidly. From a Nutrition point of view, one of the things I would consider if someone comes to see me presenting mental health issues is to look at the health of their digestive system. I think a lot of people know now that diet and gut health can seriously affect mental health symptoms such as stress-related disorders, depression and anxiety. Signalling between the gut and the brain includes communication via the immune system, central nervous system and the endocrine (hormonal) system, which in turn impacts mood and behaviour. This communication is under the influence of the gut microbiota. The gut is home to hundreds of trillions of micro-organisms, which form part of the gut-microbiome-brain axis. The complex interactions involved are thought to be influential in conditions such as depression, schizophrenia, autismspectrum disorders and ADHD. After running several tests on a patient in my clinic, I would be able to detect if there is a problem in the gut and then determine how to treat it. Sometimes it can be really simple stuff to correct and can make all the difference to a persons well-being, thought pattern, feelings of anxiety and feelings of happiness. Can you imagine? A lifetime of healthy eating, or a lifetime of medication, which can often cause other side effects and symptoms. Sometimes if you look at life really simply and clean up your diet, so you take the toxins and stress away from your physical body, it s amazing what can happen to the mind. Even just the realization that the two are connected can help address health issues. Knowledge is always power, so if you suffer, get to know as much about your subject as you can, because it often removes the fear. If you are worried about mental health for yourself, your child, or someone you know and would like to talk things through, or book an appointment for a consultation please don t hesitate to contact me for further confidential advice at: PAGE: 18

19 Local house-builder Barratt Homes Southampton has received the maximum five-star rating in the new Home Builders Federation (HBF) annual New Homes Survey. Michelle Storer - above, sales director at Barratt Homes Southampton, said: We are very proud to be independently rated as a five-star builder, and to be the only major national house-builder to have fivestars for nine years in a row. To us this is the most important industry award which is why we put so much effort into building high quality homes in the first place and then looking after our customers as much as possible. It is great to know that more than 90% of our customers would recommend us to a friend. The number of stars awarded is based on responses to the question would you recommend your builder to a friend? For Barratt to have been awarded fivestars means that more than 90% of its customers would recommend their homes to a friend. Barratt is currently the only major national house-builder to be rated as fivestar for nine years in a row, having first been awarded the accolade back in With 2018 also being the 60th anniversary year for Barratt, the new fivestar rating award is a double celebration for the house-builder. The HBF New Homes Survey is one of the largest surveys of its type in the country with nearly 40,000 people who have recently bought a new build home completing it. The simple one to five star rating system was developed to give customers an easy to view ranking system of which house-builders have the most satisfied customers. The high customer satisfaction for Barratt Homes is a product of the housebuilder s commitment to building high quality homes and creating great places. Coupled with its focus on looking after customers, particularly post sale, all of this combined produces the high recommendation scores. Stewart Baseley, executive chairman of Barratt Homes reinforces position as the UK s most recommended house-builder Hayling Camera Club Competition The last few weeks at Hayling Island Camera Club have been busy with the last rounds of the internal competitions in both the projected digital image league and the print league. The scores from the fourth rounds in each of these will help finalise members final league positions for each of the three categories, Beginners, Intermediate and Advanced and will be used to help determine movement between the categories up and down! Results in the fourth and final round of the Projected Digital Image League were: Preliminary: Elaine Redknap with Great Court Intermediate: Mike Inglis with A Scotsman s Home is his Castle Advanced: Gary Kenmir with Catbells Dawn Winner of the Projected Digital Image of the Evening was Mike Inglis. Mike joined Hayling Island Camera Club this season and says he was somewhat overwhelmed by the lovely comments he received from club members after the judging. It made me realise what a friendly club we have he said I m glad I joined. When he reviewed his image afterwards, he saw that he had actually taken A Scotsman s Home is his Castle in December, 2009 on his Canon 300D. I d always wanted to improve it he said, And joining the club has given me the skills to do just that! Results in the fourth and final round of the Print League were: Langdale Valley Preliminary: Nic Charrett with Beaky Intermediate: Mike Inglis with A Scotsman s Home is his Castle Advanced: Gary Kenmir with Langdale Valley Winner of the Print of the Evening was Gary Kenmir with one of his own personal favourite landscapes. It has colour, snow, nice clouds, decent composition and it is sharp! Gary has quite a reputation amongst club members for the quality of his landscapes. When asked, he says If I were to give only one piece of advice about photographing the Lake District, it would be to avoid summer when everything is green and there are countless visitors. Choose the right times in autumn, winter and spring and you will be rewarded with a far greater palette and you only share it with a few walkers! The next few weeks at the club will see a couple of special internal club competitions, two inter-club Beaky competitions and the Annual General Meeting. A couple of photographic outings during the summer months are already arranged and others are in the pipeline. The club does not finish at the end of the season! the Home Builders Federation, said: Achieving high levels of customer satisfaction is hugely challenging. It requires leadership from board level downwards and commitment from all areas of a housebuilding business and is a credit to every member of staff. A five-star rating is not easy to achieve and is a very positive endorsement of the processes, systems and culture in place and should provide customers with real confidence in Barratt and the homes they build.

During his time in my shop he remarked at the amount of small bits I keep in stock. He had never seen another of his retailers with such a large selection box of screws for guitars ever! Beside the strings and other accessories that left the shop while he was there. I have said for years that my shop is like a Hardware shop for musical instruments! With all the little bits I do carry there are times when I've sold out or never even seen one! To me this is an important side of the music industry. It's all very well selling large items, but all rather sad if your Shop cannot offer any decent form of after sales service, which seems to be the norm with so many business's of today with a cannot fix it so bin it attitude! So maybe those that buy on-line can easily get what they want. I have found over the years that the internet has created two types customers: Some who only buy on-line, and others who would rather see and play an instrument before buying it. Just to look round a shop has a plus factor. There is so much more to retail than just being a box shifter!! Enjoy your instruments.

23 Being of Sound Mind by Andrew Hull is a play set in the drawing room of an old manor house, the time is the early 1970 s although the décor of the manor house has not changed for the last 25 years. Edward Goodchild has died and the characters have been called for the reading of his will. Stephen and Penelope Asquith are eager for money, Martin Bodmin does not quite know why he has been summoned and ex-actress Rebecca Flockhart, sister of Edward Goodchild s wife Eleanor who died before Edward, has her own reason. However their inheritance is not as straightforward as they think as Edward has put a stipulation which he calls a chicken clause in his will which is that they all have to survive the night in the house until 9am the next morning in order to receive the whole inheritance. Why has he done this? Glorious: The True Story of Florence Foster Jenkins, the Worst Singer in the World by Peter Quilter. You may recall there was a film last year with Meryl Streep and Hugh Grant. The play is even funnier! Hilarious comedy of the worst singer in the world. In 1940's New York, the performer who everyone wanted to see live was Florence Foster Jenkins, an enthusiastic soprano whose pitch was far from perfect. Known as 'the first lady of the sliding scale', she warbled and screeched her way through the evening to an audience who mostly fell about with laughter. But this delusional and joyously happy woman paid little attention to her critics, instead she was surrounded by a circle of devoted friends who were almost as eccentric as STANSTED PARK ROWLANDS CASTLE, HAMPSHIRE, PO9 6DX Saturday 30th June & Sunday 1st July - The Nostalgia Show - Delight in a whimsical EVENTS weekend of nostalgic music and all the Sunday 20th May - Solent MGs in The charms of days gone by 10:30am-9pm What s on Park - See these classic cars in front of the Tuesday 17th July - Il Divo - Outdoor Wednesday 28th August - Treasure Island House - 12pm-4pm concert Boxtree Productions outdoor theatre Thursday 24th May - Music Evening Castles and Country Tour Sunday 2nd September - Hot Rod & In the elegant Music Room of Stansted Monday 30th July - Alice's Adventures in Custom Car Show - With Victory Wheelers House 7:30pm Wonderland, Chapterhouse Theatre Wednesday 26th September - Last Day of Friday 8th - Sunday 10th June - The Company House Opening 1pm-5pm (last admission 4pm) Garden Show - A whole weekend of From 12pm Friday 10th - Sunday 12th Sunday 21st - Sunday 27th October - gardening heaven! 10am - 5pm daily August - Flo Vibe - Retreat meets family Half term Halloween activities Sunday 17th June - Father's Day - Free festival with yoga, dance, live music & Thursday 22nd - Sunday 25th entry to the House for all Fathers 1pm-5pm treatments in the woods November - Stansted Christmas Fayre Wednesday 20th June - The Importance Wednesday 22nd August - Robin Hood For more information visit our website or, of Being Earnest - The Pantaloons family and his Merry Men - Chapterhouse Theatre contact the estate office on outdoor theatre 6pm-9pm Company Hayling Island U3A are undertaking research into the Social History of the Island from Members are keen to seek the help of readers in their work.

25 Citizen s Advice Havant continue to deliver services Citizen s Advice Havant have been commissioned to deliver their services to residents for the next 18 months by Havant Borough Council. As part of the agreement, the advice service will prioritise accessible services to accommodate those who require their assistance. The new arrangement will replace the former service level agreement that had been in place for many years. This method of delivery allows Havant Borough Council to take a more proactive role in shaping the services required by working closer with the Back To Continue The Good Work We d like another day of volunteering with Hayling Horticultural Society at Hayling College was the message that came through to Community First from Lockheed Martin, a large technology company based in Havant. The company were keen to continue their support for the Growing Together project set up by Bill Biggs and Ray Jones from Hayling Horticultural Society with the objective of crossing the intergenerational divide enabling children and adults to learn and have fun together. Lockheed Martin UK - Integrated Systems (LMUK IS) regularly takes part in volunteering activities organised by Community First. They first visited Hayling College in October 2017 and spent the day preparing the fruit and vegetable cage, digging over the poly-tunnel and tidying up the pond area. They wanted to return to the college to continue work preparing the grounds, which in turn will enable the students to start planting fruit and vegetables ready for the new season. William Ottley from Lockheed Martin said It s been lovely to come back a second provider to gain better value for money. Jon Stuart, Chief Executive, Citizen s Advice Havant added We are pleased to be awarded this contract so that our team of dedicated staff and volunteers can continue supporting local people and families in need of advice. Citizen s Advice Havant can be contacted on or at their advice centres at the Public Service Plaza, Leigh Park Community Centre, Waterlooville Library or Hayling Island Community Centre - for their opening hours see: The LMUK IS volunteers with Bill Biggs (wearing a hat) and Ray Jones from Hayling Horticultural Society. time and see the progress from our last visit. It s been great to work with enthusiastic pupils who care about the grounds and the future benefit to the school. Bill Biggs from Hayling Horticultural Society was grateful for their return saying We are delighted to see Lockheed Martin return to help the Growing Together project. They have done some wonderful work and once again they have been an inspiration to the students. Ray Jones from the project said, We are extremely grateful to Community First for organising volunteers - their help is invaluable getting projects off the ground. The team worked hard preparing and clearing a number of different areas, with the help of some of the College students. Gillian Jackman from Hayling College said Now the ground is prepared the students will be able to plant vegetables. The intention is to sell the veg to the community and raise funds to keep the livestock we have at the College. Lockheed have helped immensely. Without their help it would have taken the students many days to get to this stage. THE PORTSMOUTH AIRCREW ASSOCIATION & FRIENDS The Portsmouth Aircrew Association & Friends The Portsmouth Aircrew Association & Friends is not just a club for former aircrew.

Whilst we maintain a core membership of both wartime and cold war aircrew, our present membership contains people from all walks of life, and even boasts a former RN submariner! Meetings are on the 2nd Monday of each month at the Royal British Legion, Full House for The Arts Society Portsdown Anniversary Lecture It was a full house on the evening of the 5th April when, at the Spring Arts and Heritage Centre in Havant, the audience settled down for what proved to be an utterly fascinating and hugely informative lecture entitled Votes for Women Art, Suffragettes and Female Politicians! The speaker, celebrated archivist, author and historian Caroline Shenton, was introduced by Janet Williams, the President of The Arts Society Portsdown, which had organised the event, and June Robinson, the National Chairman of The Arts Society which numbers over 90,000 members in countries across the globe. The lecture marked two special anniversaries which fall in 2018; the golden anniversary of The Arts Society in Britain and the 100th anniversary of the year when the first women in Britain finally won the right to vote in elections to parliament. Among the audience was at least one listener with a direct connection to those who fought for women s suffrage in the last century: Jacqueline Bowker s great grandmother, Margaret Pennington was a close friend of Millicent Fawcett whose statue will soon grace Parliament Square in recognition of her leading role in the struggle for equal rights. Jacqueline, from Emsworth in Hampshire, told me how Margaret and her husband, the Liberal MP for Stockport, were, with Millicent Fawcett, founder members of the London Suffrage Society which promoted the suffragist campaign of non-violent action. Both the promoters and the opponents of What s on Hayling Island, at 11 am and we always include a very interesting speaker. On Monday 14th May Tim Thorley will give an illustrated talk on The Apache Aircraft and on Monday11th June Joe Marsden recounts the intricacies of The Bloodhound Years. These Branch meetings are supplemented with an active social life featuring monthly lunches, a summer outing and a lively Christmas party. Full membership is only 5 pa, (no charge for a taster visit), and new Friends are always made very welcome; so give us a visit. Further details from Keith Watson on women s suffrage used art and artists to reinforce their respective messages and the visual image became a key weapon in the battle of beliefs. This was beautifully illustrated by Caroline who concluded a superb lecture by inviting questions from the floor. It was clear that what she had shared with us had been most thought-provoking and the response from the audience at the end of the evening showed that the overriding theme of The Arts Society, enriching lives through the arts, had been met with resounding success.

Further information about the partnership can be found on the Safer Havant Website, visit - Making a Difference to our Coastlines Volunteers young and old give up their time to make a difference to our beaches Nearly a hundred people gave up their Saturday morning to come and help clean up a local shoreline on Hayling Island over the Easter weekend. The Final Straw Solent carried out their second organised beach clean on the 30th March, and by the power of social media alone an amazing eighty-three people, young and old, came along to help clean up a section of The Hayling Billy Trail. Sixty-five bags of rubbish were collected by these dedicated volunteers. Featuring highly among the collection of rubbish were plastic water bottles, dozens of straws and cotton bud sticks not forgetting the carpet, tyres and deflated rubber dingy that were lugged down to the collection point. The turn-out is incredible, said Final Straw Solent founder, Bianca Carr, We are so grateful to all the fantastic volunteers who have come to help this morning. I m blown away by the number of young families who are here it s so important to teach the next generation that we need to take care of our environment. Our seas and coastlines are in the middle of a plastic crisis, and we all need to start reducing the amount of single-use plastic that we buy and taking responsibility for cleaning up after ourselves. The UK and USA throw away 550 million plastic straws A DAY. These straws are, on average, used for twenty minutes before they are tossed in a bin (or, unfortunately, on the floor). It is estimated that a straw will take over 200 years to break down that straw you used last week will be around long after you are! And before they start to break down, they can pose a threat to wildlife. When the plastic eventually starts to break down, it becomes tiny bits of micro-plastic that can be eaten by marine animals. There is PAGE: 28 some evidence these micro-plastics have entered our food chain. And plastic acts like a magnet for chemicals, it adsorbs and holds them so that if they are ingested they cause even more problems as the chemicals are slowly released. It can all feel a bit overwhelming, so we have decided that we need to focus on the small things we can do to make changes. REFUSE STRAWS - Most people do not need a straw, and if you do then why not use a paper, wheat or bamboo straw or reusable metal one. If you are offered a straw in a café, bar or restaurant, just say no thanks!. USE REUSABLE BAGS - Plastic bags are not very strong anyway and can get blown into the countryside, waterways or the sea so easily. There are loads of interesting, cool, fun or pretty reusable fabric shopping bags around, so why not take one of those with you every time you go shopping, rather than asking for a plastic one? USE REUSABLE WATER BOTTLES - Single-use plastic bottles are expensive to produce, use up valuable natural resources to make and transport and create mountains and mountains of waste once we ve gulped down the contents. And recycling is not the answer either, here in the UK an estimated 800 plastic bottles a MINUTE are either ending up in landfill or as litter, which will too often make its way into our waterways and out to sea. We can all help with this by purchasing a re-usable water bottle. Put simply, if it s plastic or wrapped in plastic, think about viable alternatives. Refuse that straw and any other unnecessary plastic, spread the word and help save our planet! We hope that people will follow this campaign with earnest and join us for our next organised beach cleans, and that it will have a positive impact on our environment and change peoples views on their consumption of single-use plastic.
