May is here… a month which has been long

awaited for me as I will be celebrating my

30 th birthday!

Speaking of celebrations, Busted fans are thrilled

with the news of the band reuniting. I was lucky

enough to interview our local celeb, Charlie

Simpson, about the band and their upcoming

show at Newmarket Nights this summer.

Our review this month took place in the Norfolk

Countryside. Set within 300 acres, we visited

Barnham Broom Hotel, Golf and Spa.

From amazing Afternoon Tea treats to top of the

range gym facilities (and not forgetting the two

on site golf courses), there is plenty here to keep

all of the family entertained.

April saw the launch of the new village hall in

Huntingfield. ‘The Hub’ opened its doors on St

George’s day and is now taking bookings, see

pages 72 and 73 to read all about it.

businesses, and feature the re-opening of Beccles

Lido outdoor swimming pool.

If you would like information regarding

advertising I would be happy to speak to you,

so please feel free to get in touch.

I would like to thank everyone for the kind

birthday wishes. The last ten years have been

challenging, but I am happy to report that I am

right where I am supposed to be. A special thank

you to my family, and to my partner Sam who has

been my rock.

2. Cook the onions and garlic in the oil for

3-4 minutes. Meanwhile, slice the chillies in

3. Stir the chillies into the onions and garlic

along with the salt and the water. Turn down

the heat and simmer until the onions are

soft.

Ingredients

• 4 fillets of fish, cut into four, deboned,

skin removed

• 2 medium onions

• 4 fresh green chillies

• 4 garlic cloves

• 200g tinned chopped tomatoes

• 3 tbsp. vegetable oil

• 1 1/2 tsp. each of paprika, ground cumin

and ground coriander

• 1 tsp. each of ground turmeric, salt and

chilli powder

• 125ml water

4. Stir in the turmeric, coriander, chilli

powder, cumin and paprika. Add the tinned

CHARITY FASHION

SHOW

“Bury St Edmunds Women’s Aid Centre (the Refuge) was

established in 1974 to provide safety and support for women

and children experiencing Domestic Abuse.”

On Wednesday 13th April, Hobbs fashion store at

The Arc, Bury St Edmunds, held a special charity

fashion show in aid of Bury’s Women’s Refuge.

event. When I was in a time of need, their doors

were open to give me all of the help and advice I

required.

Bounce Editor, Rachel Ducker, was invited along

to report and compare at the event.

“The women’s refuge in Bury St Edmunds is a

charity which is very close to my heart, so I was

delighted when I was asked to help with the

Although domestic violence is becoming more

talked about now a days and with shows (most

recently ‘The Archers’) covering this sensitive

topic, until you have lived it, domestic violence can

be a very hard topic to understand. This is now a

topic that I am no longer afraid of.

Manager Tracey Zahra-Norris and her staff were

on hand to make the event a great success and

managed to raise over £250 for the charity.

Most recently the store celebrates the win of a

nationwide award for being the top performing

store in their UK portfolio throughout the autumn

and winter season in 2015.

Bury St Edmunds Women’s Aid Centre (the

Refuge,) was established in 1974 to provide safety

and support for women and children experiencing

Domestic Abuse. The Refuge has living

accommodation for up to 23 bed spaces. They

offer temporary accommodation in a safe and

supportive refuge where women and their children,

can recover from the traumatic effects of domestic

violence and make informed choices. Not only that

there is also a wide range of community services,

courses and counselling to support women to

rebuild their lives after abuse.

I would also like to thank Zena Battersby for her

help on the evening and a special thank you to the

models and Mel and her team at Bliss Hair Studios

for their support.”

Some abuse is not always physical, and mental

scars can last just as long.

The popular event at Hobbs was enjoyed by

all, and guests were given a glimpse of the new

seasons fashions. The mayor Patrick (Hung Chow)

Chung and his wife were also in attendance on

the evening, as the Women’s Refuge is one of his

chosen charities this year.

BY ZEE BATTERSBY

I’m not old i’m

retro

Check out my

fashion website

imnotoldimretro.co.uk

Well hello there! I’m back with my monthly column… Ok so firstly a reminder about

me. I’m Zena (Zee for short) I’m 43, a mother and a grandmother.

Wedding Season is upon us. If you’re like me,

you relish the chance to get dressed up and

drink fizz in the afternoon.

Really go for it! There are so many fantastic

shops for women locally and we have the world

at our fingertips.

So with that in my mind, here’s a quick

alternative fashion style guide for those of you

who are a bit more daring!

Guests

Go bold or go home!

Fascinator’s are a bit of a cop

out for me I’m afraid. I’m all for

flower garlands, clip-ins and

hats. My go to lady for millenary

is Lizzy Hall.

Give yourself plenty of time to get your outfit

organised. If your ordering online and you can

afford to order different sizes, then

do so.

If online is not your thing, we are

lucky enough to have some great

boutiques around. If you love the

fifties look, (and it doesn’t have to

be the whole hog), then ‘Pocket

Watch and Petticoats’ is a great

place to start.

Lizzy has a range of hats and

Head Pieces to suit everyone

and she can customise

something for you or make you

a bespoke piece to match your

outfit. Perfect for the bridal

party.

They have a great range of

dresses and accessories for

women from size 6 to 26.

They are friendly and so helpful. You will leave

feeling ten foot tall and bursting with confidence.

Visit their boutiques in Bury (newly opened) and

Ipswich.

Shoes... oh dear, I walk like dick emery in heels.

By all means buy the pair you really want BUT,

have a packet of blister plasters and some

flats for later in your bag. Its pretty much the

unspoken rule these days!

Don’t match with your husband (or dates)

outfit; it’s just not cool. A pocket square for

him is fine with a splash of the colour you’re

wearing but don’t do it to the letter, you don’t

want to look like bookends.

Trouser suits are making a big comeback. My

advice is they are more suited (pardon the

pun) if you are slim. Keep accessories to a

minimum and keep you hair simple. Draw on

Coco Chanel for inspiration.

Most importantly enjoy yourself. We all

know after that second glass of fizz all the

stress of preparation goes away. So just

enjoy every moment and remember almost

everyone woman will be feeling just like you,

so complement each other. We are all in this

getting older together aren’t we?

For more fashion inspiration get over to

my blog where I have link to all the shops

mentioned.

The Wedding Cake

BY CATHERINE STARLING-GUNFIELD

Cakes have been

associated with

weddings throughout

history.

The Romans shared cake during

the wedding ceremony which was a

plain confection made from wheat

flour, salt and water.

In Britain early cakes were flat and

round and contained fruit and nuts

which symbolise fertility.

The shape of the modern three

tiered iced cake is believed to have

been inspired by the spire of Saint Bride’s Church in the City of

London.

Superstitions & Rituals

It is said that unmarried guests who place a piece of wedding

cake under their pillow before sleeping will increase their

prospects of finding a partner and bridesmaids who do will

dream of their future husbands.

Cutting the wedding cake is now part of the ritual celebrations

at the reception. The couple make the first cut together to

symbolise their shared future.

Ideas

• Different flavoured tiers.

• Using fake tiers to add height.

• Coloured icing to match your theme.

• Something different? Tiered cheese cake, tiered giant

• Use your cake as your dessert

The Expert!

Q: “What is the most

important thing to remember

when ordering your wedding

cake”?

A: “It’s your day, make your

choice for you.

baking for are those who have no

regrets”.

BUSTED ARE BACK

RACHEL DUCKER INTERVIEWS CHARLIE SIMPSON...

Celebrating Newmarkets 350

years, transporting you to the

‘Year 3000’ for a night of fun,

frolics and fantastic racing, poprock

heavyweights, Busted will be

storming the Newmarket Nights

stage on 22nd July.

Almost 11 years after the mega-selling, double-

Brit-winning pop-rock trio said goodbye after

a record-breaking 12th show at Wembley

Arena, James Bourne, Matt Willis and Charlie

Simpson are back together.

The reunion that many – including, to be

fair, the band themselves – said would never

happen?

Editor Rachel Ducker, caught up personally

with Charlie Simpson, for an exclusive

interview.

Q: So it’s the reunion everyone said would

never happen… and Busted are back, how did

it all come about?

We hadn’t been in contact for a long time;

we’d gone around eight years without seeing

each other. We started hanging out again

and realised that we actually shared some

common ground. It opened the idea up, and

we thought lets start doing this again. So we

decided to start writing to see what would

come out and we ended up coming out with

some great songs, so here we are again.

Q: This time round (I hope you don’t mind

me saying,) you’re all a little older, and a

little wiser and you know the industry well.

Do you feel there is anything distinctively

different about the band second time round?

Well I think because of what you’ve just said,

that makes a big difference, we are coming at

this in a completely different time of our lives

where we’ve been doing a lot of stuff you

know, but, we’ve had 10 years in the industry

now and we know how it all works. I think

when we were younger we were sort of naïve

sixteen year old’s and it was a great time, it

was a sort of whirlwind and I think we went

on board with a lot of stuff and now we are in

control of what we are doing and that makes

2727


MAY 2016 MAY | ISSUE 2016 #43 | ISSUE | BOUNCE #43 FEATURE

a big difference I think.

Q: I also hear you and Matt are dads now

too? Does that make being on tour hard?

It’s tough man, you know, being away

from my kids, but we try and get them to

come to some places that we’re at and if

we get a day off we can just head home

for the night so, its a bit of a balancing

thing. I think the hardest part is going

away and being away from your family,

but we get to have great fun as well.

Q: Do you ever have any regrets of

leaving Busted when you did, or do you

feel it was always the journey you were

supposed to take?

Absolutely right, it had to happen you

know. I don’t think we would be here now

if that hadn’t of happened, everything

that’s happened since the band broke up

means we’ve all got our own experiences

outside of this band and I think that’s

made the band stronger for it now we are

doing it again.

Q: How did you find the transition from

fresh-faced boy bander to hard rock

man?

It had its challenges, Fightstar were lucky

enough to have support, which was a big

help, I mean it was obviously a completely

different thing so I think it took a few

people by surprise, its been great to now

come back to this and everyone’s gone

away and done they’re own thing. I was

lucky enough to do the Fightstar stuff

and to some solo stuff and we’ve had

great experiences and now we are all on

the same page and I don’t think we were

there five years ago.

James told me he’d resigned to the fact it

was never going to happen again and he

was uncomfortable with that, so it was as

much of a shock to us as it was to anyone

else.

Q: Do you regret missing out on the

whole McBusted trip?

No, that was something that Matt and

James did and it would have been weird

for me to be involved with that as I don’t

really have a relationship with those

guys that Matt and James do. I’ve always

thought to myself if I was to come back

to do Busted again it would just be with

Matt and James. I think what they’ve done

over the last couple of years is very much

their thing.

Q: How long were you interested in

returning to the group before you

announced it?

We’d been talking about it for the last

couple of years, but only really seriously

in the last 6-7 months. We went to

Philadelphia to go to a studio and it was

after that we really sort of knew that we

were going to do it again.

Q: Going back to the start of your

career, we’ve seen that you are musically

talented and I’ve heard from sources that

your family are too going back many

generations, in fact your first band was

with your two brothers, so what inspired

you to get into music?

I think, when I was at school we all had

to learn an instrument; it was part of

the curriculum, so there was something

about the guitar that just really appealed

to me. Then I remember my dad playing

a lot of music when I was growing up

and that made me accustomed to it, and

my brother was listening to a lot of rock

music so I had plenty of influences around

me.

Q: Speaking of your family, I believe you

are a Suffolk lad, and your tour stops in

Newmarket, how do you feel about being

back?

I love it man, I love playing Suffolk, we’ve

had some great gigs there, I remember

playing a show for my solo album at the

Ipswich Corn Exchange and that was one

of my favourite shows as I used to go

there when I was growing up, its always

a special moment when you go back to

your home town and play a show.

We’re really excited about it, we’ve been

out in LA working on it, its very different

but I think we’ve written some great

songs and I don’t want to give too much

away yet, but its going to be exciting for

the fans and we cant wait to see the fans

reaction to it.

I also love playing in the East Anglia

region, so yeah. I actually went to

Newmarket as a punter when I was

younger. I used to watch the races and

stuff so yeah I am looking forward to that

I think it will be a really fun show.

Q: I also hear you are an Ipswich Town

supporter?

Yeah I support Ipswich, I don’t follow it

hugely my brother is actually a much

bigger football fan than I am, but I keep

an eye on what Ipswich are doing as

obviously its my home town I support

them yeah.

Q: So do you have a favourite place

you like to visit when you come back to

Suffolk?

I spent most of my summers growing at

Thorpeness on the coast. I’ve got some

of my happiest memories at that place. I

used to spend three weeks in the summer

there and it was just magical. We just

used to ride around on our bikes and have

so much fun and obviously Woodbridge,

where my parents live, is a really special

place to me as well.

Q: When was the last time you got

Busted and what were you doing?

Mmmm that’s an interesting one, probably

speeding!

Q: You have a new album coming out in

the Autumn what can we look forward

to?

Q: Touching on Newmarket again if

anyone is interested in coming to see

you what can they expect?

During the tour it will mainly be all of the

songs that people will want to hear. We

only have two albums so we’re going to

be playing our older material with a few

new ones thrown it but yeah, they can

expect a high-energy show, and we used

to have a lot of fun on the stage so they

can expect quite a spectacle.

So there we have it, the men of Busted

are back, but they’re taking it one

arena tour at a time. They appreciate

that the differences that broke them

up are, for one thing, now completely

understandable. But also, it’s those

differences, that volatility, that make

their three-way partnership hugely

exciting now. Rather than rue them,

it’s time to celebrate those varied

personalities. Because as the Busted

threesome find common ground all

over again, the music they make has the

potential to be wildly greater than the

sum of its parts. So, yes, they’re bristling

with song ideas. Yes, they would love

to do an album (and studio time is in

the offing...). Will they look for a new

record deal? Do they need a new record

deal? There will be no hurried, panicked

decisions. Things were helter-skelter

mad enough the last time round – and

for sure, they still have ground to make

up – that no one’s rushing anything.

EXERCISE

for everyone

Enjoy a workout that tones the

whole body!

Are you looking for a safe and effective

workout that is fun, sociable and brings

speedy results?

Give NORDIC WALKING a try. Everyone

knows that walking is good for you, and we

are constantly being told to ditch the car to

travel by foot, take the stairs instead of the

lift, park further away from the shops etc...

Nordic Walking is an enhancement of ordinary

walking — it makes something we learn to do

as babies twice as effective! It is a specific

fitness technique and is not to be confused

with trekking, hill walking or trail running.

If you want to get into shape, boost health

or just get active, Nordic Walking is a simple

way to exercise the whole body, and can be

easily fitted into a hectic lifestyle. It provides

effective calorie burning, tones the arms and

legs and improves posture. It’s also great for

stress, easy on the joints and beneficial for

conditions like osteoporosis.

With Nordic Walking, you’ll be on your way

to results faster than you think too. The use

of the poles makes the walking feel easier but

actually propels you and makes you lighter

on your feet. You will find you can walk faster

and further than usual and soon notice the

improvements in posture, muscle tone and

weight/inch loss too - what’s NOT to LOVE

about that?!

Nordic Walking can be done by almost

anybody (If you can walk, you can learn to

Nordic Walk), anywhere and does not require

expensive kit.

Kevin Marshall of Positive Steps Fitness and

Wellbeing is a delivery partner for Nordic

Walking UK and runs regular tasters sessions

and technique courses in Needham Market,

Bury St Edmunds and Newmarket. As part of

Suffolk’s year of walking, he is also delighted

to be working with Mid Suffolk District

Council to bring Nordic Walking to Eye,

Thornham and Stradbroke starting in June.

Kevin and his team of Nordic Walk leaders run

regular Nordic Walks throughout the week

across West Suffolk and Mid Suffolk. .

THE SELF CENTRE

Can Yoga make you

happy?

This month we look at how yoga

is different from a gym workout or

an ordinary “exercise class” and

exactly how it affects your mind/

mood as well as your body!

In the modern western world most of us turn to

yoga for a fitter, leaner, healthier body which we

gain from practicing the 100’s of different poses

which are all designed to work specific joints,

muscles, organs, glands bringing the physical

body into a state of “ease” rather than what

seems more common in our stress affected lives

which is “dis-ease”.

So lets look at what makes yoga different.

You are feeling better and energized because

yoga increases oxygen flow to your brain and

cells plus it enhances your body’s own power of

detoxification. If you keep on practicing it you are

expected to experience the following:

1. A deep mindfulness, which will make your

perceptions vivid.

2. A mental calm and wellness that will make

you enjoy every waking moment.

3. A leaner body and better digestive ability

requiring lesser food mass.

4.A lower pulse rate like athletes and a longer

life with reduced aging.

Our favourite analogy is the unravelling of the

hosepipe! Its true though, just for a moment

imagine how a tight, overweight, locked,

restricted human body performs and functions

compared to a flexible, lean and free flowing one?

It makes sense doesn’t it and also creates a sense

of wellbeing and happiness.

Sometimes you have to “step outside of the

comfort zone” and make small changes towards

finding the strength and flexibility we need in our

minds as well as bodies to be able to do those

poses.

The first step is to try it and see how you get on!

BOUNCE FEATURE

FOCUS ON

BECCLES

On the edge of the beautiful Broads

MAY 2016 | ISSUE #43

Beccles is a charming town

situated on the River Waveney

and is at the most southern

point of the Suffolk and Norfolk

Broads.

The town itself offers a wealth of diversity,

combining history with modern-day culture,

surrounded by fantastic views set amongst

rolling countryside. There is a blend of shops,

restaurants and other services that will make

a trip to Beccles memorable, but it’s the

independent shops and businesses make up the

heart of the town.

Beccles means ‘meadow by the stream’, this still

makes sense today. Once a flourishing Saxon

riverport, it lies in the Waveney valley and is a

popular boating centre.

In fact you could say this is one of the many

things that draws you to Beccles, there’s no

activity more pleasant than mooring up at the

quayside and enjoying a summer picnic.

With a vast mix of places to eat and drink

including Upstairs at Baileys, Tywfords, the

Wine Vaults, and Graze. Or perhaps if you fancy

sitting by the River The Waveney House Hotel

offers pleasant views from there outside patio.

Not forgetting the upcoming Food and Drink

Festival on 28th May!

As well as a thriving culinary scene, Beccles

45


has an interesting history and several important

landmarks, including the Bell Tower, which at 97ft

tall provides spectacular views of Beccles and the

Broads.

At different times of the year the Tower is open

for guided tours providing visitors with an insight

to the building’s history. Steeped in history,

Beccles suffered from extensive fires in the 16th

and 17th centuries, and much of the oldest parts

of the town were destroyed.

As a result, most of what can be seen today

dates from the Georgian period and later. An

exception to this is the Tudor manor of Rose

Hall (alternately spelled “Roos” Hall). There are

many buildings of architectural interest, including

Leman House in Ballygate, home of the Beccles

Museum.

When you visit Beccles, a glimpse of the town

museum inside the 16th century Leman House is

a must. Details on the history of Beccles can be

found within, (open April to October, Tuesday to

Saturday, 2.30pm to 5pm).

In terms of attractions, nothing beats swimming

outdoors so why not visit Beccles Lido?

This is a heated, open-air pool with slide,

springboard, giant inflatable aquarun, grassy

areas, sun loungers, tables and chairs to relax on,

a perfect place for a swim or a family day out.

Beccles Lido also operates The Big Dog Ferry,

which runs 4 times daily between Beccles Lido

and Geldeston Locks Inn. It is a relaxing 3 mile

boat journey along the River Waveney with the

opportunity to enjoy the wildlife en-route.

Whilst there, you can enjoy a meal and a drink at

the Locks Inn, or stay on board for a round trip.

Those visiting by water can book mooring

spaces in or on the day; half day mooring is

also available, although visitors will need more

than half a day to experience all of the town’s

attractions.

The Quayside at Beccles is home to a number of

events throughout the year including the Beccles

Carnival, and a number of other community

events.

Also featured are The Duck Race, Antiques

Market, The Harvest Moon Free Music Festival

and the Late Night Christmas Event. It is also

worth catching a race or two at Beccles’ annual

regatta.

Wines

from the Rhone Valley

The river Rhone rises in the Alps and passes through Lucerne and

Lake Geneva before joining the river Saone at Lyon.

south of Lyon and ends near to Montelimar where

the famous Nougat comes from. Most Rhone

wines are 98% red.

BY ‘WINE BUFF’ FRED FISHER

From there heading south vineyards abound as far

as Avignon, historically the residency of the Pope

in 1308. He further built Chateauneuf-du-Pape, his

summer Palace.

Long before this, the Romans traversed the area

and made wine on their route to the tin mines of

Cornwall.

The vineyards

The region can be considered in two parts, North

and South The Northern Rhone runs from just

The Northern Rhone

This mostly constitutes a narrow valley with steep

sides with several lateral valleys. The weather

being continental is dominated by the Mistral , a

strong regular wind, which in turn necessitates

the use of posts to support the vines.

Syrah is the most dominant black grape, resulting

in strong tannic long lived wines, with a distinct

flavour of black fruit. Of the white grapes the

Viognier is the most important, with a peach and

apricot tone. Originating in Condrieu in the north

it has become a cult grape, successfully grown in

Australia, Chile and California.

Some famous Crus are Cotes Rotie, Hermitage,

white.

Saint Peray in the same area are making bottle

From the more continental weather in the

north, the Southern Rhone has a much more

flat.

Here many varieties are grown

and blended to make the wine.

Syrah is joined by Grenache,

Mourvedre, Cinsault and

Carignan, plus up to 7 others

for the red wines. White wines

are made from Clairette, Ugni

Blanc (the Cognac grape), and 7

others.

Rhone Villages, these being of higher criteria in

their making.

There are 18 which can append the name of the

village on the label. For example Cotes du Rhone

Villages Cairenne AC.

The most famous wine is Chateauneuf-du-Pape,

which was the first wine to be granted the status

Appellation Controlle in 1936. The Grenache

grape dominates but up to 13 can be used.

The most common blend is Grenache, Syrah,

Mourvedre and Cinsault. A small quantity of white

Chateauneuf is available.

One interesting soil here is called galets, which

look like large pebbles, also called pudding

stones. These warm up during the day and

act like storage heaters keeping the

vines warm at night.

Tavel and Lirac are close by villages

producing good quality red and

white. Tavel is the only one allowed

to produce Rose Gigondas and

Vacqueras are recently promoted

and considered to be a challenge to

Chateauneuf.

The most important wine here is Cotes du

Rhone AC which can be red or white, and forms

about 80% of the region’s production. These

wines are blended from various grapes from the

aforementioned.

Within the Southern Rhone there are a number of

villages entitled to call their red wines Cotes du

Beaumes de Venise and Rasteau produce Vin du

Naturel, which are made by adding high strength

spirit to partially fermented wine, thus retaining

sugar and leading to a sweet fortified wine.

Some Satellite areas are adjacent, mainly

Ventoux, Luberon and Costieres de Nimes, all

producing good Rhone style wines.

Conclusions...

The Rhone Valley although not as famous as Bordeaux and Burgundy, produces very high quality

wines and has a long and illustrious history. An interesting exercise would be to compare some

Rhone wines with new world equivalents with same grapes being used. A Shiraz from Australia could

compare to a Syrah from the Rhone (Shiraz being another name for Syrah). California also produce

Syrah. Just to confuse the issue, South Africa produce Syrah and Shiraz. Most Rhone grapes are

grown around the world, so look out for Viognier from Chile and Australia. The Mourvedre also is

grown elsewhere but it can have another name such as Matero.

A RELAXING RETREAT AT

BARNHAM

BROOM HOTEL

& SPA

Just ten miles from the heart

of Norwich, nestled away in the

beautiful Norfolk countryside is the

Barnham Broom Hotel.

Set in 300 acres of pristine landscape and home

to two of Norfolk’s finest golf courses, this hotel

offers more than just a break away.

With 46 recently refurbished hotel rooms, top

leisure facilities (including a state of the art gym

and a spa), Barnham Broom Hotel gives you

everything you need for the ultimate relaxing

break away.

We were kindly invited along for just that, starting

off with a round of Traditional Afternoon Tea after

our arrival.

This included a selection of elegant finger

sandwiches, plain and raisin scones served with

Strawberry Jam and Cornish Clotted Cream a

selection of Homemade Cakes and Tarts, plus tea

and coffee.

This is served in the lounge area which overlooks

After all the swimming, we were pretty exhausted,

so we headed back to ‘The Hill Suite’ a newly

refurbished room that comes complete with a semipartitioned

sleeping area and en-suite facilities,

including complimentary Molton Brown toiletries

(my favourite).

As we reminisced about our childhood, we

remembered the times we’d visit hotels, and

in particular, the ones with swimming pools!

So after the food had settled, we were keen to

check out the leisure facilities.

After numerous laps, I realised how ‘old’ we’d

and £250,000 and 5% from any transaction exceeding

£250,000 and up to £500,000.

The surcharge applies to anyone buying a buy-to-let property

or an additional property with a value exceeding £40,000.

The extra stamp duty can add thousands of pounds to a

purchase which has put off some investors.

For example, a property sold for £250,000, before 1 April

would accrue £2,500 of stamp duty and from now on, that

figure will increase to £10,000.

If however you buy a second home and within 3 years sell

your current home you may be entitled to a refund to the

extra stamp duty you paid.

The cost of the government’s new measures will fall heavily

on buy-to-let investors, who choose this investment option to

increase their pension pot or supplement their income. The

new Stamp Duty surcharge stands to provide significant

revenues for the treasury, capitalizing on the increased

number of private landlords investing in a second property or

expanding their property portfolio.

Stamp_Duty_2016.indd 1 08/04/2016 12:40

Shazad Butt - Property

Specialist warns about the

new Stamp Duty changes.

The new financial year has started with a shake up

to stamp duty for buy-to-let investors and people

buying more then one property.

Landlords are facing a further squeeze under restrictions to

mortgage tax relief, due to come into force next year, while

the Bank of England has also announced that they aim to

tighten restrictions around buy-to-let-lending. These changes

will make lenders look into a landlord’s wider finances and

not just consider the landlord’s rental income.

According to the Association of Residential Letting Agents,

nearly 40% of the letting agents predict that the supply of

buy-to-let properties will fall from 1 April

2016, while many of the organisations’

members believing the cost will be

passed onto tenants with an increase in

rents.

In November 2015, George Osborne, the chancellor, first

announced that changes to the current stamp duty paid on second

homes or buy-to-let properties would incur a 3% surcharge. This sent

shock waves to buy-to-let investors, who rushed to buy properties

before the implementation, on 1st April 2016. For landlords, estate

agents and solicitors, the days and weeks leading up to the deadline

have been some of the busiest in living memory, as parties rushed to

complete property deals before the increase came into force.

Currently, first time buyers pay no stamp duty on the first £125,000

of any transaction, then 2% on transactions between £125,000

holiday homes or simply want to buy and sell a property

the brand new facilities The Hub has to

offer.

Many of the local villagers turned up to

celebrate the launch. Wine was kindly

provided by Halesworth Co-op and a

The much loved old hut has now gone, it

had been the centre of the village since

1921, however as you can imagine after all

that time the hut stood on its last legs.

However don’t fear, it now has a new

home in Hawstead near Bury St Edmunds

and will be the focal exhibit in a new First

World War museum.

The Hub is a 21st century building with

excellent acoustics, under floor heating

and a commercial kitchen and can hold

up to 80 people.

It offers a 100 square

metre main hall

together with a meeting room as

well as outdoor facilities including a

children’s play area.

Down at

THE FARM...

BY RACHEL DUCKER

Sometimes I feel very spoilt to

live in the country, not only do we

have a very great village pub, The

Huntingfield Arms, but it is filled

with lots of great villagers who eat

and drink there.

One evening a few weeks ago we bumped into

David Hull, a local farmer at the Henham and

Heveningham Estates.

After chatting about his day, as a special treat we

were invited to go and see the newly born lambs

and three newborn calves at his local farm in

Heveningham not far from the Hall.

David is highly passionate about his job, you can

see just how much when he interacts with the

animals, but usually you will catch him whizzing

about the village on his quad bike!

He explained that this year they had a 205%

higher conception rate, meaning 300 carried

triplets, four delivered quads, 150 had with

singles, but the majority produced twins.

Lambing started in earnest on 23rd March

and by the 1st April 600 sheep had delivered

successfully!

I have to say though there is always sadness as

well as joy at this time of year, as a percentage of

lambs do perish for a multitude of reasons.

Sadly the biggest single killer this year was ‘Storm

Katie’ on Easter Monday, when the newly born

lambs died of hypothermia.

The second was due to foxes with an increase in

numbers from last year.

The ‘Herdwicks’ lambs (grey/black fluffy ones) came all

the way from up North, they are very territorial and tend to

stay together as a group.

I was surprised by just how tame the animals were at this

age.

My partner Sam, along with his sister Anna and her partner

Dan, must have spent a good half an hour having cuddles

with the lambs and playing with the calves.

It was slightly odd picking up a lamb, as at this stage their

fur is quite bubbly and rough and to be honest it doesn’t

feel very natural to pick up a lamb, however it was certainly

an experience.

We felt very fortunate to be invited along, and I was happy

to see what wonderful conditions they had to live in.

If I were a cow or a sheep this farm is the one that I would

want to be on.

READY FOR SUMMER

SPONSORED BY CABELLO, HALESWORTH

As we start to shop for sunscreen

products for the approaching summer

months, we need to also start thinking

about protecting our hair as well as

our skin.

We all know that the sun’s ultraviolet rays can cause

severe skin damage, but the sun’s harmful rays can

also damage our hair from the cuticle to the cortex –

from the outside in.

Sun, salt, sand and chlorine are all harsh on your

hair. The best way to protect your hair from these

elements is to cover it. When you are going to be

outside in the sun for long periods of time i.e. a trip

to the beach, outside concert or fair, use a silk/satin

scarf, silk/satin lined cap or hat, or even an umbrella to

protect your hair.

Another step you can take to protect your hair from

summer elements is moisturize, moisturize, moisturize.

Sun, salt, sand and chlorine all rob your hair of

Make sure to use a leave-in conditioner

as a part of your hair care routine. In

the summer months implement more

deep conditioning and hair masks as

well, which will help prevent damage by

coating the hair shaft so that there is a

protective barrier between your hair and

the elements.

Oils such as Sesame oil, Avocado, Jojoba,

Coconut, Aloe Vera, and Macadamia Nut

oil are all natural sun screens that can

provide UV protection. And remember,

after washing your hair rinse with cool

water to close your hair cuticle (the outer

coating of the hair) to make it smooth

which helps with frizz and adds shine

without the need for silicone products

which will cause product build-up.

Make it a goal to stay away from heating

appliances, straighteners, blow dryers

etc. and opt for wearing protective styles

such as braids, twists, updos, sew-in

weaves and wigs to protect your hair in

the summer months. Also remember to

trim your hair when needed, and seal

your ends for extra protection.

When swimming, rinse or wash you hair if needed after

to get rid of the chlorine and salt. Try doing a leave-in

hair tea rinse – Chamomile, Green Tea and

Calendula tea rinses can help sooth and cool

your scalp as well as protect your hair from the

sun .

Get prepared for this summer! If you

have any questions please ask your stylist

during your next appointment. We can

recommend a range of products to help!

In -touch with Your Wellbeing...

For those of you who have treated

yourselves to a massage will understand

the positive effect this has, not only on your

physical wellbeing, but it has a profound

effect on your mental health too.

Having time to think of nothing, emptying your

mind and surrendering your body to 1-2 hours of

rhythmic movements, stretches and deep breathing,

almost putting you in a meditative state; calms

those suffering with stress and anxiety, soothes

those which muscular aches and pains and empties

a busy mind, achieving pure clarity and peace.

Something which has interested Sian Thomas -

SK’s Spa Manager, is Ayuervedic Medicine and it’s

incredible massage. The principal of this ancient

Indian Holistic medicine (which includes treatments

such as massage) is that everything is connected.

Our bodies and the environment around us work

together to keep energy flowing, which promotes

good health and balance of the bodies’ energy

sources.

According to Ayurvedic theory and history,

everything in the universe, whether living or not,

is connected. The best health is achieved when

your mind, body, and spirit are in harmony with the

universe. Ayurveda sees everything in the universe

(including human beings) composed of five basic

elements (or Panchamahabhutas): space, air, fire,

water and earth. These elements cause three biophysical

forces (Doshas) to be found within the

human body. Vata (space and air), Pitta (water and

fire) and Kapha (earth and water). Depending on

your type, certain treatments are used which will

have the best possible effect for your particular

Dosha. For followers of Ayurveda, anything that

affects your physical, spiritual, or emotional

wellbeing can cause you to be out of balance with

the universe.

Some things that can cause a disruption to the

body, mind and spirit include injuries or trauma,

climate, emotions, diet and lifestyle to name a few.

Having worked in the spa industry in India in 2001,

Sian has now incorporated Ayuervedic massage

movements and principals to SK’s massages,

in particular the SK Signature Massage and the

Synchronised Massage also known as Four Hands

Massage.

Treating you holistically

from top to toe, these

massage treatments are

unashamedly indulgent,

but will help you to

achieve balance

and calm in a

hectic world.

“Venus Viva is the next

generation in skin resurfacing

and remodelling”

This technology is proven to effectively tighten

skin, improve texture, and correct pigmentation,

rosacea, scarring and stretch marks. Sara Esler

skincare specialist at Daydreams Bury St.

Edmunds can confirm this as can many clients.

The Viva delivers so much more than standard

radio frequency. The Viva is really versatile and

parameters can be adjusted to vary the degree

of resurfacing and/or collagen production and

tightening. Treatment plans are specific to each

client and intensity of energy can be increased

during a course of treatment. 3 -5 treatments

being recommended.

2016 sees Daydreams working increasingly with

Venus Viva on stretch marks and scars alongside

the facial treatments. Significant results on the

‘mummy tummy’. As Roxanne mother of twins

Natural

Beauty

BY CARLA MIREILLE JONES

We all want our skin looking the best, as I’ve said

many times before, it’s how you look after your skin

that will make your skin feel and look the best it can.

More and more companies are focusing on natural

products, containing all natural ingredients.

A lot of these companies are network-marketing

companies, but there are a few others such as Neals

Yard that also specialise in natural products.

If you are looking for a foundation

that is all natural but still has

a good coverage, then Nu

Skins Nu Colour foundation is

beautiful! Being water based,

the skin it will not clog the

skin so much.

A good test to check for these

types of foundations is to get

a glass of water and pump some

product into it, if the foundation blends

in with the water, making it slightly misty then you

know it does not contain oil in it; if the foundation

clumps, so you can see balls of it then you know it

contains oils. Neals Yard Remedies do a beautiful

loose powder blusher, like all of their products, it is

made with natural ingredients.

Back to Nu Skin, (yes I have recently

discovered Nu Skin and am

loving the products,)

their new mascara is

lengthening, and yes it

really does work, but

without containing

fibres.

Now onto hair, one

of the best natural

treatments you can

give your hair is to use

a bit of coconut oil.

When using it for a treatment put it

onto wet hair, leaving it in for however long you

want and then rinse out. So get natural!

How to add

colour to

your home...

Adding a touch of colour is a

simple way to bring character and

personality into your home.

Update and refresh your rooms

by choosing colours to enhance,

complement and brighten for an instant

style transformation.

Bring the outside in

One of the best ways to introduce colour

into your home is to take inspiration from

the outdoors, especially at this time of

year.

Blues, particularly teal and sky blues, and

greens are very on-trend at the moment,

and look fantastic paired with natural

colours such as cream and grey.

Try adding a pop of colour to a neutral

kitchen or dining room with blue or green

dining chairs for an instant transformation.

For a simple way to bring the outside into

any room of the house, accessorise your

home with coloured glass vases filled

with either fresh blooms or artificial

flowers.

Accessorise with colour

Choosing coloured accessories for

your rooms is a budget-friendly

option and will brighten up your home

instantly.

Teal and mustard are two on-trend

colours that will last you through the

seasons, so any home accessories that

you can find in either of these shades

is a perfect option.

94


HOME & GARDEN

MAY 2016 MAY | ISSUE 2016 #43 | ISSUE | HOME #43& GARDEN

Try coloured crockery and utensils in the

kitchen, a fabric covered canvas in your

living room, and candles and trinket boxes

in the bedroom.

Pick a pattern

Patterned homeware items offer a great

opportunity to add more than one colour

to a room, and are a great way to express

your personality.

To freshen up your windows add a splash

of colour with some new patterned

blinds, and try a made to measure option

for quick and easy installation. Choose

patterns in blues, greens, creams and

greys for an on-trend look.

Lampshades and scatter cushions in

striking patterns are another great option,

and can be easily swapped with changes

in season and current trends.

By adding colour to your home you can

create a bright and vibrant space that you

love spending time in, and really show off

your creativity and personality.

SUMMER IS ON IT’S WAY

BY KATE LINES

Kates Top Tip for May: Plant out

cannas and dahlias

As bulbs fade and herbaceous

borders grow in leaps and bounds,

it is now clear that summer is

approaching.

Sowing and planting out bedding can begin,

depending on regional weather variations, and you

can take softwood cuttings.

It’s also time to get back into the lawn mowing

regime, as the lawn will be loving the warmer

temperatures this month brings.

Flowers

Tubs can be planted up with

summer bedding in milder areas.

In colder areas further north or at

high altitudes, it is advised to wait until

early June, or until all risk of frost has passed.

Divide clumps of herbaceous perennials that you

want to propagate.

Bamboos and clumps of bulbs or rhizomes can be

divided in the same way. Cutting back clumps of

spring-flowering perennials such as Pulmonaria and

Doronicum can encourage a fresh flush of foliage.

HOME & GARDEN

MAY 2016 MAY | ISSUE 2016 #43 | ISSUE | HOME #43& GARDEN

Top jobs this month:

1. Watch out for late frosts. Protect tender plants

2.Earth up potatoes, and promptly plant any still

remaining

5. Regularly hoe off weeds

6. Open greenhouse vents and doors on warm

days

7. Mow lawns weekly

8. Check for nesting birds before clipping hedges

3. Plant out summer bedding at the end of the

month (except in cold areas)

9. Lift and divide overcrowded clumps of daffodils

and other spring-flowering bulbs

4. Collect rainwater and investigate ways to

recycle water for irrigation

10. Watch out for viburnum beetle and lily beetle

grubs

The art of…

MIX & MATCH

Gone are the days of

everything having to

be just so...

BY RUBY REED

Everything having to

match just perfectly and

the endless search for

that rare shade of yellow

you’ve never managed to

come across again.

Maybe you’ve noticed

yourself, particularly in

funky restaurants, the chairs

around your table don’t

match?! Crazy... right? Nope.

It’s a trend that seems to

have taken off in a handful

of public places - the local

Wetherspoon’s even!

Well how about household furnishings following

suit? It’s an idea that can be pursued whatever the

type of décor in your home, modern or traditional.

There are a few ways to go about your mix and

matching. For example you could go for different

designs of chair but all in the same colour.

Or the same design chair but in different colours.

The mix and match doesn’t have to stop with your

dining chairs.

Taking it through to the sitting room is an option

too! What about odd arm chairs, having nothing to

do with your sofa. Perfect if you can’t make up your

mind by the way... or maybe just can’t agree with

your partner!

His and hers it is.

100


HOME & GARDEN

MAY 2016 MAY | ISSUE 2016 #43 | ISSUE | HOME #43& GARDEN

Back in the kitchen, mixing

it up is also a great way of

not having to say goodbye

to your entire dinner set

if several pieces seem to

have the odd chip or crack.

As of now it is completely

acceptable to add another

set, a new design but

just keeping to the same

colour could work.

Lots of sets are sold

already containing multiple

designs.

Mix and match can also

solve the problem of

finding something you

like, but liking it in more

than one colour… so don’t

chose - embrace your

indecisiveness and take the blue, green

and cream!

Fear not, pick up that storage box

in the next colour too - they make a

great contrast, with the bonus of you

knowing your socks are in the black and

your scarves the white, no

guessing necessary!

Go on, step out of line, just how much is

up to you!

Try creating a display like the photo

frames pictured. Or of course it could

work to your advantage if there is only

one left in the colour you wanted.

free-flowing football rather than second-tier success

any day.

CONTRASTING AND CONFLICTING

EMOTIONS AHEAD OF UNCERTAIN

SUMMER AT IP1...

In the last week, I have swung

from being ultra-negative,

hopeful, realistic and then

ultimately a little sad.

You could argue that

it is in keeping with an

Ipswich Town season that

promised great things, then

flattered to deceive and

will ultimately be quite

forgettable.

Let me explain my thought

process, dear Town fans,

as if this is some kind

of football counselling

session.

After witnessing the defeat to Brentford, I

thought it was time for Mick McCarthy to go.

Owner Marcus Evans was giving him little

help, but the football in recent weeks has

been awful – plain and simple.

I would rather watch and write about a

mid-table side who played the right kind of

football than one that flirted with the top six

but played like Ipswich have for most of 2016.

I think back to Portsmouth, League 2

Portsmouth, and how they were a joy to watch

in the FA Cup at Portman Road.

I know many wouldn’t agree, but give me

Then, it was argued to me that a nice blend of

football would not guarantee a mid-table finish,

or higher. Indeed in the rough and tough of

Championship football, Ipswich might not survive.

Onto my next feelings – hope. As all these thoughts

swirled in my mind, up rose 16-year-old Andre

Dozzell to head an equaliser against Sheffield

Wednesday.

I am 37 years old, my oldest son is only eight years

younger than the midfielder. Seeing Andre make

such a memorable impact and what it meant to dad

Jason, himself a record-breaker, in the stands at

Hillsbrough was an incredible moment. Just what

was needed.

A poor 1-1 draw with Fulham

followed, a match that will live

in the memory only for the

embarrassing and ironic cheers

that greeted Ipswich’s first shot at

goal – after 72 minutes.

Things have to change. But I have

decided, after more than a few days

going back and forth, that change

should not come in the dugout.

McCarthy deserves more time as

much as he deserves more financial

support from his owner.

Marcus Evans, if you ever see this column, I am not

asking you to compete with the likes of Derby or

Middlesbrough. I understand we are not going to

be in the market for an Andre Gray or look to sign a

Gaston Ramirez on loan.

But please give Mick a sensible budget for next

season. Somewhere in the region of £3-5 million

could see us buy some decent players, a couple

from the Championship and maybe one or two of

the brightest from lower leagues. Add a couple of

Premier League loans and maybe, just maybe. Here

comes the hope again…

exciting and energetic mass dance.

Last came the Molly Dancers to entertain us with

the sumptuously named ‘Mississippi Mud Dance’

who’s chorus of ‘Left right left right one two three

four’ soon echoed back from the crowd.

It truly was a wonderful day. A huge thank you to

all who helped make the second Halesworth day of

Dance so successful. The Day of Dance will be back

once again next year.

The crowd drew in closer

to see the ‘Morris Monkeys’.

and faultlessly with their

plastic pipe “sticks” (Boom

their approval. With hardly

THEATRE

ROYAL

BY NICKI DIXON

May is one of the Theatre Royal’s

busiest months this season with just

eight days in the whole month when

there isn’t something on the stage.

Kicking off the month (3 to 4 May) is

Stones In His Pockets where two actors

play a vast array of eccentric characters

telling the story of a Hollywood film

crew descending on a small Irish village.

From there it goes global with Graham Greene’s

Travels With My Aunt (5 to 7 May) where four

actors take on over 20 characters in this hilarious

mad cap dash around the world with

Harold Pulling.

In a total change of genre, it’s a welcome back

to Ballet Theatre UK who return with one of the

world’s most popular tales – Pinocchio.

(9 to 10 May).

Watch his adventures unfold through the magic

of classical dance as our puppet hero seeks to

fulfil his wish of becoming a real boy.

If it’s history you crave then join The Pantaloons

for The (Almost) Complete History of Britain

(11 to 12 May). This breathless race through the

centuries is delightfully inventive and tells the

whole story of our country in two hours!

All time classic Hollywood songs courtesy of

Fascinating Aida’s Liza Pulman are celebrated

(13 May) in Liza Pulman Sings Hollywood.

She brings an evening of some of the greatest

songs from the silver screen, celebrating the

golden age of Hollywood and beyond.

On 14 May Forever Plaid is a 50s rollercoaster

ride of comedy and music and stars Jon Lee (S

Club 7) and Keith Jack (Any Dream Will Do).

Celebrating the close harmony songs of the

1950s, The Plaids deliver nostalgic hits including

Three Coins In A Fountain, Rags To Riches and

Catch A Falling Star.

Comics Gary Delaney, Sean Hughes, Pete Firman

and Jarred Christmas bring their own unique

brand of humour on 15 May for the All-Star

Stand-Up Tour 2016.

Stage star, Jodie Prenger stars in Tell Me On A

Sunday on 17 May. Following her rise to fame as

the winning Nancy in the BBC’s I’d Do Anything,

she now steps into the shoes of an English girl in

New York in the 1980s.

The original Andrew Lloyd Webber and Don

Black score features the chart-topping Take That

Look Off Your Face.

Other May highlights include the comedy What

Would Spock Do? (18 May), Flanders & Swann

(20 May) The Diary of A Hounslow Girl (24 to 25

May) and Dinosaur Park (27 May).

BY JACK STEVENS

MUSIC

There’s a surf and psych resurgence

finally making its way through East

Anglia – amongst those newcomers

(Kyanos, Pale Fires), there is a band

made up of three other noise mongers.

I caught up with the Bury St. Edmundsbased

quintet Sun Scream after their debut

live show back in late March, discussing

influences, plans and self-designed artwork…

Hi guys – congratulations on the recent

debut performance. Firstly, are there

anymore live shows scheduled? It went down

so well at the Horse Party album launch.

We are gig hunting gig hunting in East Anglia

and we are getting involved with promoters

and venues around Brighton and London.

(Catt) In all honestly, the Horse Party gig

really took us by surprise and motivated

us. We got the gig as Washing Machine put

incredible faith in us. We barely had a song, or

even a full band at that point. But we pushed

ourselves and we are so happy with how it

went down! (James)

The sound has a real surf/psych undercurrent

amidst the alternate and heavier influences

that push through. What and who would you

state as your clear influences?

We were all weaned on The Cure from an

early age, but at the moment some of our

biggest influences are Diiv and tame impala.

(Tom) Plus, Thee Oh Sees and Savages (Catt).

We all bring a lot of influences to the sound of

the band, but they all gel together incredibly

well. Being a five piece, with synths, keys etc.

we have a lot of room to play and expand our

sound. (James)

You’ve stated in a past interview that the

sound is still in its “early days”… does this

infancy mean we’ll see it chart differently

as you write, or will you guys take time to

formulate a body of work that’s consistent?

Basically my question is, how long must we

wait for recorded material?

We’ve got a lot of material to work on, the

fun part is working on it and seeing what

we come out with at the end, but the stuff is

worth working on and at the rate we’re writing

I’d say the sound will mature and develop

pretty quick. We plan to get a single out by

the summer and an EP in the next few months.

(Catt). We are looking to record as soon as

possible and we are really excited about it.

Although we possibly rushed into playing a

gig it worked out for the best because we

have some great material that we want to

get out there! I’m also really excited about

designing some mean art work for it, it’s one

of my favourite parts of being in this bandtrying

to convey the music into a design style.

(Emily)

See you next month - Jack

Adventures

THE CAT WASN’T THE ONLY ONE WHO GOT THE CREAM!...

Hey everyone, I’ve been hanging

out with the kittens a lot lately and I

have been trying to teach them the

ways of the world.

One afternoon they asked me the definition of

‘the cat that got the cream’. I explained (in a very

big brother kind of way), that it is if someone is

looking very pleased with themselves and happy,

its like the feeling you get when your owner

forgets to put the cream away and you become

“the cat that got the cream”.

They then asked me what the dog has done? It

got me thinking what have dogs done in English

history? I found the following ‘to be as sick as a

dog,’ ‘as sly as a dog,’ and ‘you cant teach an old

dog new tricks’! You can see where I am going

with this… uff. All negative.

mans best friend after all so there must be some

positive associations with us in the dictionary?

“Better be the head of a dog than the tail of

a lion”… hmmm still not what I was after, so I

progressed with another search. Then finally…

‘Dog does not eat dog’ - one disreputable

person will not harm other disreputable people.

Better sill I then found ‘Every dog has its day’ -

Everyone gets a chance eventually.

So I am telling all of the cats and kittens out

there, you may have your cream but dogs will

go down in history for being resilient, loyal and

compassionate. I’d rather be that than smug

creamy chops any day! Meanwhile the kittens

are still trying to claw their way into the fridge.

They’ll never learn! Twitter @bouncearchie.

So I started to think to myself, why does the cat

get the cream and the dog ends up bloomin’

sick?

I decided to do some further research, dogs are
