Welcome to this, the March/April edition of Northampton Local magazine, where as well

as our usual host of regular advertisers offering their most sought after goods and

services and in addition to the popular competitions that we regularly run, we’re delighted

also to introduce a number of newbies. Among these are

Future Wills. It’s estimated that around 60% of people in

the UK don’t have wills, so in the unfortunate event of their

untimely death, their families would be left not knowing

what the deceased’s wishes were. Future Wills are

offering readers an introductory New Client offer of just £20

for a Single Will (normal price £110) and just £25 (instead

of £180) for a Mirror Will (terms & conditions apply. Details

on page 55). So why put it off any longer, contact

Future Wills today and take some of the worry and

uncertainty away for your loved ones. If you’re looking for

childcare for your 6 month to 12 year old then look no

further

further. Redrobins Nannery of Lumbertubs

Lane, Boothville currently have plenty of

places available. (Details on page 9).

a

Another New Client offer is courtesy of

Hair by Nicki who are offering a Cut &

Finish for just £20 (details on page 11).

If you’d like to promote your business, charity, club,

products or services in the next edition of the magazine

and take advantage of the incredibly low prices which

continue to remain on offer for yet another year,

please contact advertise@northampton-local.co.uk or call

07738 024 823. From all of us here at Northampton

Local, we wish you all a lovely Easter. Stay safe and

please don’t forget to mention Northampton Local when

contacting our host of much valued advertisers.

Wife: You hate my

relatives.

Husband: No I don’t.

In fact, I like your

Pupil: Would you

punish me for

something I didn’t do?

Teacher: Of course not.

Pupil: Good, because I

haven’t done my

homework!

Parent: We spent the

first 12 months of our

them to walk and talk

and then spent the next

helping a child

smile again

That’s our kind

of fostering


nfa is currently

recruiting foster carers

Good foster carers provide a safe, nurturing family environment where children

with traumatic early experiences can flourish.

Do you have the time and energy to invest in a child or young person?

You will need a bedroom for the exclusive use of the child and we will provide

you with all the support you need so together we can make a difference.

We would like to share with you a wonderful poem written by Chelsea, a young

person who has been placed with one of NFA’s carers in Lincolnshire. Chelsea

explores a difficult time in her life throughout the poem and the effects that

fostering has had, helping her to develop strong, loving relationships.

The relationships were horrible. Then everything was terrible.

Heartbroken was how I felt all the time. Then turned into the worst crime.

Every day I was so depressed. And everything turned into a mess.

Smashing the house was the worst thing I’d done. And it was really not that fun.

The feeling of the police at my bedroom window. All of a sudden, I felt really low.

My life.

Falling out with my family what can I do, a nice fresh start and something new.

I had enough so I went to London. The whole thing felt terrifying and I felt done in.

That night we all got high, I felt I was dancing in the sky.

Hearing my name on the news. Got me shaking in my shoes.

My life.

I walked in the doors and it felt like a prison. The whole 7 months felt like a mission.

Upset was the worst thing I’ve felt. I just wanted to hide and melt.

How can depression make you feel so sad? I thought it won’t make you feel so bad.

For the first few weeks I was annoyed. Everything around made me feel destroyed.

My life.

Leaving the place was such an achievement. So happy I thought I was dreaming.

Foster care was a whole new place. Like I won my first 100-mile race.

Loved is the first thing I felt. Wrapped around tightly like a seat belt.

After all of this we made up. Finally, after this horrible break up.

Our relationships are stronger than before. We love each other more and more.

My life.

Be Amazing!

Northampton Area Diabetes UK Group was formed over 48 years ago. We are an active

group of volunteers holding seven meetings in the Lecture Hall at Northampton General

Hospital per year. All meetings are diabetes related and we offer a warm welcome to

anyone who has diabetes or is interested in the condition.

From the beginning there have always been strong links with the professionals from the

Northampton Diabetes Team who are part of the group. It is only because we have their

support that the group has been so successful. We usually hold a Diabetes Open Day in

conjunction with the Diabetes Team on a Saturday morning once every year at St Giles

Parish Rooms when the public can drop in and get advice from the specialist and research

nurses, podiatrists and dietician as well as chat to people who have lived with diabetes -

some for many years.

Children and young people living with the condition are also supported. The Parents Group

hold an activity day once a year at Adventure Ways in Moulton. The children and their

siblings enjoy supervised craft and sporting activities all day while the parents take part in a

programme of talks, discussions and workshops with a paediatric and adult diabetes

consultant and other members of the Paediatric Diabetes Team. The children meet others

who have the condition and learn how to cope with activity and their condition while the

parents share their experiences of living with the ups and downs when a young family

member has the condition. The Group raises money for research into diabetes and also to

fund the Family Day.

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

Helen Crawford, Alzheimer’s Society

Services Manager in Northamptonshire

Spring is the ideal time to get out and get active, with the

weather improving and the days getting longer.

Getting more exercise and making healthier choices can go a long way to

reducing your risk of dementia. While some things that affect your risk of

dementia can’t be changed, such as your age or genes, there are many

things you can change. These five things are especially important if you’re in

your 40s, 50s or 60s - but they’re relevant to everyone.

1. Get moving

One of the best ways to reduce your risk of dementia is taking part in regular

physical exercise. It’s good for your heart, circulation, weight and mental

wellbeing. Try to do a combination of activities you’ll enjoy as you’re more

likely to stick to them, such as aerobic activities that get you moving, brisk

walking, riding a bike or pushing a lawnmower. Also try ‘resistance activities’

that work your muscles, such as digging and shovelling in the garden, or

lifting weights.

2. Eat well

A healthy, balanced diet is likely to reduce your risk of dementia, as well as

other conditions including cancer, type 2 diabetes, obesity, stroke and

heart disease.

Most of us know we

should eat five

portions of fruit and

vegetables each day

but it’s also a good

idea to eat fish or

other omega-3 rich

foods at least twice a

week. Base meals

around starchy foods

like bread, pasta and

potatoes. Also be

wary of hidden salt in

foods and keep sugary

foods as a treat.

Take action to reduce your risk of dementia

3. Quit smoking and cut down on alcohol

If you smoke, you’re putting yourself at much higher risk of developing

dementia later in life, as well as other conditions such as cancer and stroke.

Drinking too much alcohol also increases your risk of developing dementia.

Aim to drink no more than 14 units per week. That’s the equivalent of six

pints of 4% lager in a week or 6 glasses of 175ml wine in a week (13% ABV).

4. Keep your mind active

You can also help to reduce your risk of dementia by exercising your mind.

Research suggests that regularly challenging yourself mentally seems to build

up the brain’s ability to cope with disease.

Find an activity you enjoy, as you’re more likely to keep it up. Try doing

puzzles or crosswords, learn a new language, play card games, study for a

course or write articles or stories.

You might want to do some of these activities with friends or neighbours.

Spending time with other people is an important part of keeping your mind

active.

5. Look after your health

Taking control of your health will help reduce your risk of dementia. If you’re

aged 40-74, start by getting your free NHS health check. You’ll be invited to

this by your GP.

It’s important to see the GP if you’re worried about health problems such as

depression, hearing loss, or not getting enough sleep. All of these might

increase your risk of dementia.

For more information on local support provided by Alzheimer’s

Society, or if you’d like to volunteer with the charity call our

Northamptonshire office 01832 736670

The Advanced Driver Course

The advanced driver course provides members of the

public with effective post driving test training. It is

appropriate for anyone with a driving licence, no matter

what age. The course will raise your driving skills to

advanced test standard and will build on your existing

experience. It will also help those who experience

difficulty with certain roads and situations. Things they

may actively avoid. Motorways for example, or multilane

roundabouts, both commonly present problems for

some people.

Those who undertake the course find it gives them much

greater driving confidence. They often comment on just

how much they have learned about driving. Things they

were previously unaware of - even with many years of

driving experience. Come along for a free assessment

and find out what it’s all about.

Poem donated by David Garrett

L O W C O S T A D V E R T I S I N G F O R A L L

As I stand by the gate looking around at the scene

I see a patchwork of gardens joined by paths of dark green

As men toil and till soil, fresh food for to grow

By the sweat of their body and the power of the hoe

Sheds of all sizes the landscape adorn

Some proud and erect, some old and forlorn

Old men and young men join together to fight

Against the forces of nature and all her great might.

Mice eat the seeds that are put in the ground,

While those that they miss the birds will have found,

And if quite by chance a plant may mature

The rabbits will find it of that you are sure,

The men grumble and groan about this abuse,

But year after year food they try to produce,

Too wet to plant, things are getting behind,

Once planted, ground dries, no more rain do we find,

Buckets of water to potatoes are fed,

Seedlings struggle to survive on scorched dust dry bed,

Broad beans ripe to pick go down with the fly

Peas shrivel from drought and you just watch them die,

Whitefly on the Brussels, immune to the spray,

Thank God for the rhubarb I hear someone say,

By the end of the summer these battered brave men

Will all dig their gardens and start over again,

But there is more to allotments than gardening and toil

It’s a place to unwind from the world you recoil,

A place where you meet men who think as you do

Where rewards are plenty though profits are few,

Fresh air and sunshine is the bonus they seek

When on Sunday they forget all the cares of the week.

Now if you feel that some land you would till,

Just think of the problems, for the way there needs will.
