SUN, SEA…..and REX

With the grey clouds at last starting to give

way to bouts of brilliant sunshine, now's

the time to rejuvenate your senses and

exercise your dog at the same time by

heading for our sparkling coastline. But

where can you and Rex, your

poo-producing, sandwich-stealing pooch

actually go without upsetting everyone

else around you? Read on, Sophie's Pet

Care have got it all sorted...

free bits of hot sausage. Now it's changed

hands, and become a no-dog zone inside.

However, there's a wide selection of

public seating with rejuvenating sea views

outside, and you can grab a snack and a

drink from the beachfront shop. There are

also public conveniences available.

Gundimore Beach at Mudeford is ideal.

Unlike it's neighbour Avon Beach — where

from May they'll fine you and your fourlegged

friend for setting foot on it —

little-known Gundimore, right next door

remains "dog friendly" all the year round.

You can leave your vehicle in the sunken

car park just behind the beach, or admire

the view from the public car park adjacent

to the Noisy Lobster Cafe. It's situated

right on the seafront overlooking the Isle

of Wight.

Gundimore Beach begins just to the right

of this car park and continues in a westerly

direction up toward Mudeford Quay.

There's usually a few dogs on the beach

cavorting around and plunging manfully

into the freezing waves. No one bothers

them or you as long as you pick up your

poo (well, not your poo exactly.... umm,

you know what we mean).

The Noisy Lobster Cafe used to be

dog-friendly, didn't mind sandy floors and

wet dogs and would often dish them out

We can supply a walk route sheet if you

fancy a wander around Gundimore in case

you're stuck for inspiration.

If you'd like a printable PDF of this walk

route that you can take with you, simply

email walkies@sophiespetcare.com and

we'll send you one completely free of

charge, and tell you about the services we

can offer to you and your dog.

See you next month from some more

canine capers and hot news from the

dogosphere!

NOTES FROM THE SOLENT CELLAR

Poiron Dabin| New Arrivals from the Loire

At the Solent Cellar, we love sharing our

new wine discoveries from our travels.

Our latest trip encompassed several

appellations of the Loire Valley, ending our

trip South East of Nantes in the heart of

Muscadet country.

There has been some resurgence going on

in Muscadet over the recent years, and

quality is definitely on the up! The younger

generations are taking over the reins and

introducing new ideas and techniques.

Yields are being lowered and organic

viticulture is becoming more common. The

creation of a new Cru status for exceptional

areas for Muscadet has been exciting for

growers and this has resulted in the

creation of more complex wines. Although

only 2% of Muscadet's production accounts

for 'Cru Communal' it has raised the profile

of the region highlighting the importance of

terroir.

Poiron Dabin Sauvignon Blanc, IGP 2017 -

Initial vine cuttings came from the

prestigious village of Sancerre, this wine

represents amazing value. Delicate but ripe

passionfruit notes on the nose as well as

pear. It has a long citrus finish.

Poiron Dabin Muscadet Sur Lie Veille

Vignes - A wine from 50 year old vines, this

produces a classic 'Sur Lie' Muscadet with

citrus and green apple notes and

minerality. Pair to oysters!

Poiron Dabin Sauvignon 'Fie Gris' 2017 -

From one of their more obscure grape

varieties which has a pinkish hue to the

skin, this is fruity, slightly riper style with a

touch of elderflower and ripe apple. The

perfect match would be Asian food with a

touch of spice, or fish baked with aromatic

herbs.

Living on the South Coast , we love pairing

the wines we have to the amazing array of

fresh, local produce. At this time of year,

the white wines from the Loire are perfect

with fresh seafood such as Lymington Crab

or Poole bay oysters. The asparagus season

is also upon us, and there is nothing better

than a plate of the beautiful spears freshly

steamed and a glass of Sauvignon Blanc

from the region.

We visited on our trip, Poiron

Dabin a small producer. This

family owned estate work to

the Terra Vitis production

method, which follow

sustainable farming methods:

Poiron Dabin Chateau Thebaud 'Clos des

Tabardieres' Sevre et Maine' 2012 - The

top Cru communal wine where vineyards

are on prime granite sites, this wine spends

55 months on lees (minimum for this cru

wine is 24). It has an amazing depth of

flavour, ripe notes of apple, acacia honey

and a stony minerality. Save this for a

celebratory dish of brill or turbot. This wine

can age for up to 20 years in the cellar!

OUT ON THE WATER

Whether you have a petrol or outboard powered craft, or a diesel inboard boat, below are

listed a few essential checks to help you get back on the water this season

Fuel: Petrol

Petrol will go stale so fill up your Fuel tank to

dilute any existing fuel.

Replace any canister fuel filters or clean out

any water traps or washable fuel filters.

Replace or clean spark plugs, especially if the

engine has been “fogged” before winter

storage.

Prime the fuel system and recheck the water

traps (condensation in fuel tanks over winter

months can create a surprising amount of

water in fuel tanks.)

Add fuel conditioner to your tanks – a well

worth investment, especially when today’s

petrol contains 10% ethanol.

Fuel: Diesel

Same as above with the filters etc.

Add a biocide and water absorber to prevent

“bug” in the tank.

Bleed fuel through to eliminate air in fuel

system.

Ignition system, Electrical contact points &

Air Filters

Most petrol ignition systems are now modern

style CDI or TCI that require little

maintenance, but if you have an old

distributor style system the points will need

cleaning etc.

Batteries should be on trickle charge, and

stored off the floor in a warm environment

during the winter months. Recharge, check

the fluids and when battery terminals are

refitted, make sure the contacts are clean

and then lubricated with Vaseline or similar.

Check all domestic fuse boxes or exposed

connections, and check vital electrical items

such as bilge pumps, navigation lights etc. A

systems check on VHF and GPS would also be

recommended.

Replace or at least check air filters. Don’t

forget to remove the rag you may have

stuffed up the air intake or the bag sealing

the exhaust!

Steering & Controls, Gear Boxes & Propellers

Check to see if the steering system works freely

before you attempt to launch at the slipway.

Likewise run & test the outboard or stern drive

engine before launching and check the operation

of throttle & gear shift. Nothing more

embarrassing than launching and finding you’re

stuck at high revs in reverse!!

On Outboards & Sterndrives, change the gear oil if

not already done - an absolute must especially if

the boat is staying in the water.

Likewise, check anodes on both the cavitation

plate, and prop shaft or engine bracket assembly.

Anti foul with suitable coating if required.

Check out the propeller, re-flare the blades if

required, and if possible, remove prop and grease

the shaft. On smaller engines with shear pins

check to see if you have spares!

If you trailer a boat, then always check the wheel

bearings before setting off and lubricate – better

safe than sorry.

Likewise trailer brakes and lighting boards also

require a quick check.

Before you launch, ensure all drain bungs are

refitted, sea cocks are turned off and your

mooring warps, fenders and anchor is on board

ready to use.

If you are leaving your boat on a mooring during

the summer months, then an appropriate

anti-foul applied to the hull will prevent foul build

up and subsequent poor performance.

It is also good practise to check the expiry date of

flares, lifejackets and service dates on life-rafts

and please, please, please wear your kill cord at all

times.

There will be other items that will need checking

so always consult the professionals if unsure.

MOROCCO: Excitement and

relaxation in equal measure

Christina Pegler

TRAVEL guide

The city of Marrakesh has a

rich culture with its French,

African and Arabic

influences shown in

architecture, language, and

cuisine. Jemaa el-Fnaa

Square plays host to a huge

souk with market stalls,

spice sellers and all-day

performances which usually

start daily from around

10am. Be prepared to see

everything from snake

charmers to musicians,

acrobats to fortune tellers

and street vendors. It is an

experience to be savoured.

You can combine (or

replace!) the excitement of

Marrakesh with a number

of destinations; the High

Atlas Mountains dominate

the backdrop of the

Moroccan skyline and there

are some wonderful

accommodations which can

become your base for

exploring the mountains

either independently or

with a local mountain guide

who will take you into the

Berber settlements where

you will get an insight into

local culture and customs.

The High Atlas Mountains

are the perfect place to cool

down if you choose to visit

Morocco in mid-summer.

The mountains are

surprisingly green and lush

providing nature lovers a

huge variety of birds, flora,

and fauna to enjoy.

Morocco has some fabulous

beach resorts in Essaouira

and Agadir with their golden

sandy beaches and

charismatic resorts full of

history and adventure.

Both Agadir and Essaouria

have golf courses to suit any

ability from 9 to 36 holes.

Accommodation in Morocco

is varied, ranging from 5*

Resort Hotels to quirky

Riads (merchants houses)

which have been converted

to welcome tourists. Many

look plain from the outside

(to disguise the wealth of

merchants in past times)

but open up into beautiful

lodgings once you get

inside.

Even the food in Morocco is

interesting, delicate spices

flavouring even the simplest

of dishes. Tagine is the

famous dish associated with

the country and it will not

disappoint. Many tourists

bring newly acquired tagine

dishes back with them, but

most find it difficult to

emulate the exact flavours

and succulent meats at

home, so you must make

the most of it whilst there!

The weather in Morocco is

pleasant through the winter

months with temperatures

rarely falling below 18

degrees, summer months

can be extremely hot but

not so much that you

cannot find shaded or cool

areas. It is a beautiful

country with fantastic

hospitality which should

never be discounted as a

fabulous holiday

destination.

I have just come back from

a few days in Marrakesh so

have first-hand experience

to impart with you!

HAVE YOU HEARD THE MYTH?

There is a myth that I would like to expel by

telling you a story.

Susan and Mark fell in love when they were

in their early twenties. They didn’t think

much to the idea of marriage - they had a

joint bank account and they lived together

which was pretty much the same thing.

Wasn’t it?

The years went by and they added to their

family, with two lovely children. They

moved into their own home. When the

property was purchased as Susan wasn’t

working and it was easier it was put in

Mark’s name. But that didn’t matter, did it?

Their friends and family would often ask

whether they were going to get married,

They didn’t see the point -they would state

that they were ‘common law’ husband and

wife and they didn’t need a piece of paper.

One family friend suggested that if they

weren’t intending to get married then they

should make Wills. They didn’t get around

to it.

Mark died suddenly in his early sixties.

There was still a little bit of mortgage

outstanding on the property. The children

were both now in their thirties with

families of their own.

Susan suddenly found that she did not have

the same rights as a spouse or civil partner

and there was no such entity as a common

law spouse.

Susan inherited the bank account as it was

a joint account. However, as the house was

Mark’s, she may have rights to live in it , as

she had been living there as a couple.

However, as they were only cohabitees, it

may not be plain sailing. Under the Rules

of Intestacy that apply when someone dies

without a Will, the house passed to the

children not to Susan. If Susan wanted the

house she would have to apply to the court

under the Inheritance (Family and

Dependents) Act 1975 as she would be a

recognised dependant.

This is only one of many stories we could

tell in relation to people dying without a

Will. The most distressing part for your

family ,is that not leaving clear instructions

in a Will means that the whole process of

dealing with your estate will be more

complex and could leave the people you

care about most with provision.

Let us help you put your wishes into words.

We at Sylvan Apiaries, run 170 honey

production colonies across three counties,

Hants, Wilts and Dorset. April was a very busy

time for us on the bee farm, checking how

many colonies made it through the winter. We

always have very low numbers of losses, mainly

because we insure our colonies have enough

stores of honey and pollen to get them through

a long winter, such as the one we have had this

year. In the Autumn we only ever take the

surplus honey to sell.

The Oil seed rape is now in full flower and the

colonies are in overdrive. The queens are laying

at almost full speed. The newly hatched worker

bees are on house cleaning duties, and the

older bees are hard at work foraging, bringing

back loads of pollen to feed the brood and

nectar to feed the adult bees. Some bees will be

collecting water. Most people don`t realise

water is very important for the survival of bee

colonies & we have water feeders at all our

sites for this reason.

Bee colonies are very well structured, with

specific jobs to do within the colony . These are

determined by their age- for example, cleaning

and feeding brood, foraging and guard

duty. Each of these jobs will be undertaken in

turn by the adult bees during their brief life,

which could be as little as six weeks.

We run mostly static sites for our bees, this

means we don`t have to keep moving colonies

about after specific crops to pollenate. Much

better for the bees and for our backs!

Our main job at this time of year is to undertake

weekly inspection , looking for sign of swarming

and keep ahead of the bees. We add honey

boxes to insure they have sufficient room for

expanding brood nests and storage space for

the incoming nectar. If we don’t do this, the

BEHIND HIVE DOORS

THE LIFE OF A LOCAL BEE KEEPER

bees will run out of space and swarm, taking the

Queen, half of the bees and honey with them.

This is something we try our best to avoid. Once

the nectar is collected and stored in the wax

combs, the bees have to evaporate it to reduce

the water content before they seal it in with a

wax coat for use at a later date. It can now be

called honey.

Once the rape honey is 3/4 capped, (covered

over with wax by the bees), it is ready to

extract. We have to be quick as rape honey

crystallises very quickly. Leave it for too long

and it will have to be melted out of the comb,

resulting in the loss of the wax comb, which is

one of our most valuable assets. We collect the

full combs from the hives and take them to our

extraction room , where we uncap the honey

frames with a revolving brush or a hot knife.

The uncapped frames are placed into one of our

two centrifuge spinners where the honey is

spun out. It is then drained through a course

sieve to take out any lumps of wax or any

impurities. It is then stored in 15kg buckets.

Nothing is added, it is then either sold in bulk to

a honey packer or jarred and sold to local

outlets. The emptied wax combs are returned

to the hives to be cleaned and filled again by

the bees.

Bees and other pollinators are under pressure

from loss of suitable forage in today`s world.

Gardens are smaller than they use to be,

hedgerows have been grubbed out and

replaced by fences. This combined with the use

of pesticide on a large scale is having an adverse

effect on them all.

Without bees, our food supply would be very

much reduced. You can help support the bees

by planting bee friendly plants and buying local

honey, within 25 miles radius of the producer

would be ideal.

Sylvan Apiaries,

Hordle

Coastal Footpath Consultation

As part of the consultation process on

the new England Coast Path, the Parish

Council has written to Natural England

to voice its concern that there appears

to be no provision made between

Milford-on-Sea and Barton-on-Sea for

further cliff erosion.

The Parish Council is anxious to retain a

footpath between the two points, and as

Natural England and Hampshire County

Council are aware, the predictions by

coastal experts continue to expect

further cliff erosion. The Parish Council

has requested that serious consideration

be given to gaining access to land to

ensure the footpath is maintained when

the inevitable erosion occurs.

There is no alternative routes between

Milford and Barton other than a busy

road

36 To advertise call 01590 643969 or e-mail info@lymingtondirectory.co.uk


which has no pavements or other

footpath alongside.

Natural England have assured the Parish

Council that:

“sections … between Highcliffe and

Milford on Sea have all been identified

as requiring ‘rollback’ up to The white

House…‘Rollback’ is a mechanism that

enables Natural England to realign the

trail in a timely fashion without further

reference to the Secretary of State.

There is a mechanism also, should

there be an unexpected need due to a

significant storm for example where

rollback wasn’t expected for Natural

England to submit a ‘Variation Report’

to realign the trail.

Development at 2&4 Keyhaven Road

Renaissance Retirement is no longer

proceeding with this development of 8

retirement properties following a

corporate restructure. We wait to hear

on the future of the site.

Keyhaven War Memorial Refurbishment

The Parish Council has funded the

renovation of Keyhaven

War Memorial to ensure it

is a fitting tribute to the

fallen, for generations to

come. The Parish Council

would like to thank John de

Candole for his work on

this project.

In either case Natural England would

work with landowners to identify a

suitable alignment which would ensure

that continuity of the trail is achieved.”

WHAT 0N EARTH IS GDPR?

You may have heard about the General

Data Protection Regulations which are just

become law but may not have any idea

what it means for regular people. You’re

not alone. To fully explain GDPR would

take more space than I have here, but I

hope to give you an idea of how it affects

you.

The reasoning behind GDPR is that

businesses have been playing fast and

loose with our personal information,

without too much in the way of risk to

themselves. For large companies, a fine of

£500,000 isn’t really a deterrent. £17m or

4% of annual turnover, whichever is

higher, hurts a bit more.

But it’s not just about what happens when

things go wrong. GDPR also gives the little

man the right to know what information a

company is holding about them, how long

they intend to hold it, what justification

they have to do so and the right to have

the information completely destroyed.

If there is a valid legal reason, such as part

of a contract, then there is no right to be

forgotten. But otherwise companies have

to comply with removal requests within a

reasonable timescale and can be reported

to the Information Commissioners Office,

who have much more power now, if they

don’t.

Companies also have to publicly publish

how they deal with your personal

information and how long they intend to

hold on to it. They also have to say how

individuals can contact them with queries

or requests specifically relating to personal

data.

These details are commonly linked to on

company websites, so look for links to

things like Personal Data Protection Policy,

Data Retention Policy or Data Privacy

Notice at the bottom of website pages, or

in their legal sections.

Most importantly, they cannot keep your

information without your consent if they

have no other reason to keep it. There is

something called ‘Legitimate Interest’ as

well as legal contracts which allow data

retention, but companies can only use

your data for the use they are claiming

legitimate interest. They can’t for instance

add you to their email list as well if they

don’t have your explicit consent to do so.

Companies have to renew any consent you

give on a regular basis and if they ask you,

and you don’t reply, they have to remove

you from their records. See

www.ico.org.uk for more information.

DIARY PLANNING

Solent Music Festival

19th-23rd September 2018

September sees the return of the Solent

Music Festival to Lymington. The festival,

directed by Sophia Pagoni, features

internationally-renowned artists

performing in the intimate setting of St

Thomas Church.

This year Michael Portillo will be appearing

with the festival’s Artistic Director, pianist

Sam Haywood. Cellist Steven Isserlis will be

joined by Anthony Marwood and others

for a chamber music feast of Beethoven,

Faure, Schumann and Brahms. Members of

the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightement

will perform Vivaldi’s Four Seasons and

Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto No. 5 and

Irish soprano Ailish Tynan will sing

Schubert and Schumann Lieder with

clarinettist Katherine Spencer.

Katherine has participated in every festival

since it was founded in 2013.

'I've always liked to think of my audience

as individuals, I suppose it's a way of

controlling nerves. But what I realise every

time I come to play at the Solent Music

Festival is that yes, I'm playing/connecting

with the individual as I always try to, but

the SMF audience are a collective

experience too. A family. A warm vibrant

community that are hungry to have good

music. I can't wait to be part of it all again.'

Tickets are now on sale from the Solent

Cellar and online via the festival’s

website solentmusicfestival.com.

Early booking advised.

Milford Gardeners’ Club has been running now

for over 20 years and is still going strong with

over 130 members.

Meetings are on the third Wednesday of the

month at 7.00 pm at the Church Hall.

Our programme includes speakers on a wide

variety of garden related subjects. We started

this year with a talk on the flowers and

scenery of South Africa, a great boost in a grey

January. We have also covered climbing plants

for sun and shade and choosing and growing

vegetables for flavour. We do day trips to visit

gardens and a very popular club holiday most

years. Our annual plant fair in May has become

a familiar sight on the Village green.

Recent months have seen a few changes with

Jen Spenser stepping down from the chair,

having done an amazing job for the last 17

years. She is remaining on the committee but

her role has been taken on by Sue Crabb.

Last month’s speaker was Chris Bird from

Sparsholt College talking about “ The White

Garden”.

He kept us all on our toes with quick fire

questions about the identity of the plants on

his slides and I think was impressed by the

collective knowledge of the members. There

were lots of laughs along with a good helping of

information, especially about the structure and

design of gardens, focal points and using green

plants as a foil to show off white plants to best

advantage

Coming up, we have a talk on” Perfume of

Plants” linked to essential oils and in June, a

talk on the “Roses of Mottisfont Abbey

Gardens.”

Any of our talks have general appeal, you don’t

have to be a keen gardener, just a love of

plants, flowers and gardens, so why not give us

a try? More information can be found on our

website www.milfordgardenersclub.co.uk.

BIRD MIGRATION NOW AT PEAK

Woodland birds

such as Chiffchaff,

Blackcap and

Willow Warbler are

now being heard

throughout the

Pleasure Grounds.

Along the seafront

Sandwich,

Common and Little

Tern’s are all on the move to their summer

breeding grounds. Gardens, especially those

backing onto Studland Common, Studland

Meadow and the woodland are also enjoying

their share of interesting birds, no more so

than the Wryneck that visited a Pless Road

garden last weekend.

The Wryneck is a member of the

woodpecker family and very much behaves

like one, other than it is not silly enough to

want to bang his head against the trees

trunks like its close family members the

Green and Great Spotted Woodpecker!

Another peculiar habit is that to help conceal

itself, it sometimes perches along branches

rather than across them. It also clings to

trees like its more common family

woodpecker members.

WOODLAND BLUEBELLS

Two volunteer members of our group have

been working hard to remove bramble and

fallen dead wood from the various bluebell

patches so that they are given the best

chance of flowering … the Bluebells that is,

not the volunteers! We also need to thin out

some of the spindly saplings whose leaves

shade the plants from the sun. This job has

to be undertaken with great care as they try

not to tread on the plants as they are

Graham - Parish Clerk, Jason (Contractor)

and MCV volunteers have been working

really hard this winter to bring the

winter kept the paths extremely wet.

Several hundred yards have now been

upgraded along with several new underground

WE WOULD LIKE TO INVITE YOU

FRIENDLY STAFF

We have been working hard transforming this already

beautiful 18th Century Coach House into a stunning

country pub and restaurant.

We are concentrating on providing friendly, 1st class

service alongside freshly made on the premises,

locally sourced dishes, with a slight twist on pub

classics, ensuring the menu is appealing to discerning

diners.

Serving food ALL DAY– EVERY DAY, alongside the

menu will be fresh daily specials also locally sourced.

We are catering for the larger and smaller appetite

and have a totally fresh menu for junior diners. With

mouth-watering desserts, there is also the option of

your own personalised cheese board from our

premium cheese trolley.

Our other pubs are already famous in The New Forest

for their outstanding roast dinners and The Royal Oak

will be the same. We have some lovely large tables

for families and friends and some cosy tables for two!

Whether you are popping in for a drink (check out

our varied wine list, our real ales, ciders and lagers)

or want an evening out dining, make sure you come

and see us, meet the team and let us know what you

think. Oh….and don’t forget to bring your four legged

friend as we also welcome dogs!
