A very warm welcome to this, the May/June edition of

Northampton Local magazine. Along with our usual

competitions, adverts and promotions, we also have a

selection of feature articles which we hope will be of

interest to many of you, an example being the

opportunity to Push The Boat Out with RYA this May

and to try sailing for free or low cost in

Northamptonshire (details on page 22).

The organisers of Music in the Park

which takes place in the grounds of

Wistow Hall on Saturday 9 th June have

kindly donated 1 Family Ticket, so why

not enter our Prize Draw competition

to experience this fantastic event.

Alternatively tickets can be purchased

via the credit card hotline (details on

pages 32 & 33).

Looking to give something back to the

community, why not become a school

governor? Kings Meadow School are currently

looking for community spirited people with spare time

on their hands and energy for the role to join their

governing body. If

you might be

interested, further

details can be

found on page 51.

As always, we hope

you enjoy this edition of the magazine. If you’d like

to advertise in the next one or if you know

GIVE SAILING A GO IN NORTHAMPTONSHIRE THIS MAY

There’s something for everyone as RYA Push The Boat Out gives you the chance to try sailing and

windsurfing for free or low cost in Northamptonshire this May.

If you’re on the lookout for something completely different, whether you’re bored of the gym and

want some outdoor health and fitness, are a bit of an adrenaline junkie, need something to switch

your brain off from everyday life or simply want a sociable new activity you can enjoy with your

partner or family, pop down to your local sailing club or centre during Push The Boat Out and have

a go.

Over 22,000 people

regularly go along to

their local sailing club

every month across the

Midlands, sailing small

sailboats or windsurfing

on the region’s

reservoirs, lakes and

rivers.

Gareth Brookes, RYA Regional Development Officer for the Midlands, said: “If you didn’t even know

you could go sailing or windsurfing on your doorstep, now’s the time to give it a go. So many people

still don’t realise it is possible to sail in the Midlands and that you don’t even need to own a boat as

clubs and centres have ones to borrow or hire.

“Once you’ve learned the ropes, you can sail

on your own or with your partner, friends or

kids in dinghies or big boats, inland or on the

coast. You can enjoy watersports and flotilla

holidays overseas too. Whatever experience

you’re after, sailing can offer it as there is

always something new to discover. And after

you’ve given your mind and body an on-thewater

workout, nothing beats having a drink by

the water on warm summer evenings." In 2017

a whopping 31,000 people ‘pushed the boat

out’ at over 500 sailing and windsurfing taster

sessions across the UK. At least six venues across Northamptonshire are hosting Push The Boat

Out events throughout May. All kit and safety equipment is provided so just bring a pair of old

trainers you don’t mind getting wet and your sense of fun. Refreshments will be available with a

host of shoreside activities and entertainment to enjoy too.

Find your nearest event at www.rya.org.uk/ptbo

The Advanced Driver Course

Northampton Advanced Motorists are one of around 200

voluntary groups across the UK affiliated to IAM

Roadsmart - the country’s leading road safety charity.

The course is provided by IAM Roadsmart for a one off,

all-inclusive price of £149. We deliver the practical part

of the advanced driver course providing members of the

public with effective post driving test training. The course

will raise your driving skills to advanced test standard

and build on your existing experience. It will help those

who experience difficulty with certain roads and

situations. Things they may actively avoid. Motorways for

example, or multi-lane 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.

Dementia Action Week

Four ways to get involved in Northampton

Alzheimer’s Society’s Dementia Awareness Week has been renamed as

Dementia Action Week. It takes place from 21-27 May 2018 and

Alzheimer’s Society is calling on everyone in Northampton to unite today

and plan actions, big or small, to make a huge difference to people

affected by dementia. There are more 8000 living with dementia in

Northamptonshire and too many face the condition alone without

adequate support. Here are four ways you can get involved in 2018:

Become a Dementia Friend

Alzheimer’s Society’s Dementia

Friends programme allows people

to learn a little bit more about what

it's like to live with dementia and

then turn that understanding into

action. To get involved you can

either find your nearest Dementia

Friends Information Session - a fun,

interactive session that covers five

key messages through activities

and discussion - or watch an online

video. The growing dementia

movement has already seen nearly

two million people become

Alzheimer’s Society Dementia

Friends.

To find your nearest session, visit

dementiafriends.org.uk.

Get involved on social media

Whether you are planning your own

fundraising event, attending a Dementia

Friends Information Session or have a

unique action to help make a difference,

Alzheimer’s Society wants to hear about

it. Share what you are planning on social

media by using #DAW2018. You can ‘like’

or ‘follow’ your local Alzheimer’s Society

pages

at

facebook.com/AlzheimersSocietyEastMid

lands or twitter.com/alzsocemidlands.

Join dementia research

In the UK, one person develops dementia every three minutes and almost

everyone knows someone whose life has been affected. There hasn’t been a

new drug for dementia in 15 years. But since 2013, the number of clinical trials

for Alzheimer’s drugs has doubled. Alzheimer’s Society will continue to drive

forward research for effective treatments for dementia and – ultimately – a

cure. Unite against dementia and sign up to take part in research, visit

alzheimers.org.uk/joindementiaresearch.

Spread the news

This year’s Dementia Action Week theme is community change and we want

to see a big impact in Northampton. People with dementia and carers have

shared actions with us that will make a difference - helping them to feel

included in their communities and able to live the lives they want. Be a part of

this and get your family, friends or work colleagues to sign up and be the first

to hear more about the week. For free awareness or fundraising materials,

please visit the following website: alzheimers.org.uk/DementiaActionWeek.

POEM CORNER

(inspired by walks through Southwick forest and Southwick wood)

Where misty dreams of ages past whisper through the trees and silent

footprints through the grass parting slowly in the breeze.

Where memories in bushes hang among the bramble and the haws, where

pleasantly the bullfinch sang above the black crow caw’s.

Where red kite’s wheel on silent wings a pair of buzzards mewing sounds and

to grazing deer a strange scent brings then across the field it bounds.

Pine trees sway in the gusting wind, trunks groan and creak as though in

pain. Squirrels search for hidden nuts among the wild, shrubby terrain

Panoramic views over soft green valleys, clouds scud across an angry sky.

A chaffinch through the trees now hurries, a Blackbird gives a warning cry.

Mysterious is the dark wood’s gloom where strange sounds float on breezes

blown. Clinging bramble thorns show green where the nightingales will

make their home.

And Blackcaps in the trees now sing, their voice among branches echo

through an orchestra of astounding sounds while beneath lies a carpet laid of

blue.

The thrush repeats his final song before the horizon hides the sun. It burns

between the darkening branches on the trunks the flickering sunbeams flung.

So the woodland now will fall asleep until the creatures of the night appear.

The fox the badger cautiously rise together with the fallow and muntjack

deer.

This is just like an enchanted world an owl

screeches as the wood we leave. We go back

to where noise is dominant and in magic now I

can believe.

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

Dear Readers

There is no one-size-fits all

approach when it comes to

making food choices, but it

is important that people

with diabetes, and those at

risk of Type 2, are supported

to choose the right foods for

them to improve their

health and quality of life.

Peter Shorrick, Midlands Regional Head

Diabetes UK

That’s why we have issued

new Diabetes UK nutrition

guidelines for healthcare

professionals. For the first

time, the guidelines show

how people with Type 2 diabetes might be able to achieve remission. Eating certain foods

such as vegetables, fruits, wholegrains, fish, nuts and pulses can also help manage blood

glucose levels and reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease in people with both Type 1 and

Type 2 diabetes, as well as reduce the risk of Type 2 diabetes.

These foods are usually associated with the Mediterranean-style diet, but can be adapted

to cultural and personal preferences. Eating less red and processed meat, refined

carbohydrates - such as white bread and rice - and drinking fewer sugar sweetened drinks,

is also recommended.

Being active daily and achieving at least 150 minutes of physical activity over a week

through a variety of exercise can help people with diabetes lead healthy lives, and prevent

the onset of Type 2 diabetes for those at risk.

We hope that the new guidelines will help people enjoy food, while making healthy choices

and being more active.

The nutrition guidelines are available at www.diabetes.org.uk/nutrition-guidelines

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!
