EDITORIAL

Hello and welcome to the March/April

edition of Northampton Local magazine.

We’d like to start by thanking all those who

entered the many competitions that we ran

in the last edition. These have become

extremely popular so this edition is no

exception with the chance to win a £20

Vue Cinema Gift Voucher in our usual

“Quick Quiz” courtesy of Northampton

Advanced Drivers as well as the chance to

win an Easter Chocolate Hamper, courtesy

of the magazine.

We’d also like to thank all those who

continue to advertise in the magazine as

well as the selection of ‘newbies’.

With our prices continuing to remain so

exceptionally and consistently low, if you

know anyone who might be interested in

advertising with us, please do let us know

as we’d be delighted to hear from you.

We hope you enjoy this edition of the

magazine. Until next time, stay safe and

keep warm!

Q U A R T E R P A G E A D V E R T S C O S T J U S T £ 3 0

A HIDDEN NEST

Among the thorny red rose

branch camouflaged from alien

prying eye, lest it should be

exposed, discovered the lonely

thrushes nest.

For it was built so none could see

magpie, cat or other foes, she sits

there quiet, so patiently

withstanding all the weather

throws.

And as I stand, in wonder stare

no sign of my intrusion given her

beak, upright, points in the air to

stone like defense now she is

driven.

But have no fear, for I’ll not harm

so fine a bird that need a home,

nor will I perpetrate the calm but

leave you to your quest alone.

Then shortly fledgling chicks will

hatch, her work will then

commence for snails and slugs

and worms to catch and to her

offspring’s food dispense.

I hope your brood will grow up

safe, then leave the safety of the

nest, to give to others joy you

gave to me as a few short weeks,

you this small garden blessed.

POEM CORNER

March

Kindly donated by David Garrett

Enter now towards vernal seasons fresh

Beginning like a new proverbial lamb,

February’s winds against our very being slam

So welcome quiet calm round us enmesh.

Now the crocus stretches out her coloured bloom,

The warming sun to plant a kiss upon her face,

And violets show us too their ethereal grace,

As will primrose from clumps of leaves soon loom.

March, the month the countryside will up and rouse,

The courting birds all sing melodious songs,

At dawn we wait to hear the choral throng

Whilst knowing, still can winter spirits douse.

Toad awakes, the spawning instinct calls

Heading for a favorite pond or lake,

For two short weeks, dry land they will forsake

And spawn in strings across the weed now sprawls.

Horse chestnut sticky buds asunder rend

Showing pale the majestic leaves umbrella look,

Distinctive, they could never be mistook

They’ll spread their canopy ‘till summer’s end.

The colts foot on the clay rear up their head,

Pretty, but sometimes unwelcome guest,

The seedy down will line the goldfinch nest.

Leaving hoof like leaves across the ground to spread.

But just as summer’s thoughts on minds now play,

Snow and frost return to show their force,

The blustering North wind will blow its course

And make March end like a blighting winter’s day.

“My wife and I visited The Stags Head in Great Doddington for the first time

during January and it quickly became our new favourite pub/restaurant. From the

moment we arrived, the staff were so welcoming and friendly showing exceptional

customer service and attention to detail. The food arrived quickly and was

delicious. The menu included many pub favourites including grill, fish, vegetarian

and meat options. If you haven’t visited yet, I’d highly recommend that you do so.

The Stags Head is located just off the A45 about 10 minutes from Northampton

towards Wellingborough and it’s well worth a visit!”

Could you help someone with dementia

keep doing something they love?

Dave Bassett, Alzheimer’s Society

There are about 8000 people with dementia in

Northamptonshire and it affects many more, such as

friends and relatives of those with the condition.

We know that dementia has a devastating impact on

people. For example, 40% of people with dementia tell

us that they have felt lonely recently. This is often

caused by anxiety and loss of confidence and can lead

to depression, poor health and speed up the progress

of dementia. We also know that a third of people with

dementia lose friends following a diagnosis and that many people with the condition feel

trapped in their own homes, with almost one in 10 only leaving the house once a month.

Our service - Side by Side - aims to change that. The service offers free one-to-one support

which makes it easier for people with dementia to remain active and feel part of their local

community. By doing things like going for a walk around Abingdon Park together or to a

football match at Sixfields Stadium, our volunteers can support people with dementia to

enjoy hobbies and get out and about. What they do together is entirely based on what the

person with dementia wants.

This year, we want every person with dementia in England, Wales and Northern Ireland to

have the opportunity to access Side by Side. We need enthusiastic volunteers in

Northamptonshire to make it happen. You can currently volunteer on weekdays, evenings

and weekends at various times, either in person or over the phone - so it's a flexible way to

give your time and you really can make a huge difference to someone's life.

We'll provide you with the appropriate training and support to confidently carry out your

role, and we want the experience to be equally rewarding for both volunteers and people

with dementia using the service. We hope to attract lots of new volunteers for this flexible

service, so if you would like to find out more we'd love to hear from you.

To find out more about volunteering or using the Side by Side service, please

contact Alzheimer’s Society on 01832 736670 or

volsnorthamptonshire@alzheimers.org.uk

Help for Young, New Drivers

We all know that newly qualified, young drivers are

disproportionately represented in collision statistics.

The first two years of driving can be tricky, while

experience is gained, and can be an anxious time for

parents. New drivers are vulnerable largely because

of their lack of experience. Structured driver training

can be invaluable for a new driver, and will take them

way beyond what they learned in order to pass the

driving test.

We award two free places on the Advanced Driving

Course each year to new, young drivers (worth £149).

If you would like to be considered for a free place, or

you are an anxious parent, contact Ian Phillips on the

number below.
