NOTES FROM THE SOLENT CELLAR

Time for Provence

Wine Merchants often look forward to the

different seasons, with each season a certain

style of wine tends to dominate our sales.

Bordeaux and Burgundy in December, Rioja

around Easter time, Beaujolais for Nouveau in

November - but one of my favourites is Rosé

season, to me this indicates the start of the

Summer!

Our rosé season starts in April when we get to

taste the new vintage of the wines we ship

directly, and if the sun keeps it's hat on it runs

through until the end of ong>Septemberong>.

A customer tip off early last year introduced

us to the stunning wines of Chateau

Maravenne in

Provence who

weren't yet

imported into the

UK. After tasting the

wines and visiting

the Estate (it’s a

tough job honestly),

we are delighted by

the range we have

for the second year

running from the

small, organic Estate that is just a stones

throw from the Mediterranean Sea.

When looking at pairing rosé to food you

can't go too wrong - the dry styles from

Provence are very enjoyable as an aperitif,

but as expected is a winner with French

Provencial cooking, Elizabeth David eat your

heart out! Grilled seafood such as squid or

mackerel, and freshly picked Lymington crab

are nothing short of perfect with this style of

wine. Also summer salads and new season

lamb with a fresh salsa verde. It is often the

assumption that red wine goes well with

cheese, however pair a delicate Provence

rosé to soft cheeses such as brie or

camembert, or hunt out the British version

Baron Bigod from Suffolk and see how well

they go together!

Mussels with Garlic, Parsley and Chilli

• Steam the mussels in either water or a

splash of wine.

• Open the

mussels up and

discard half of the

shell.

• Mix

breadcrumbs, garlic,

parsley and fresh/

dried chilli flakes and

pour over some

melted butter.

• Tightly pack the

mussels with the

breadcrumb mix and arrange in an oven proof

dish.

• Pop under a hot grill for 2-3 minutes until

the breadcrumbs are crispy and golden.

To explore our range of rosé wines visit our

website www.thesolentcellar.co.uk or pop

into the shop on St Thomas Street in

Lymington (opposite M&S).

We will be serving up a range of wines from

Chateau Maravenne at Lymington Seafood

Festival 11th and 12th ong>Augustong> 11-8pm

Saturday and 11-6pm Sunday. Please see

page 11 of this magazine for more details of

PLANNING FOR A PUPPY?

If you, or

someone you

know, is

thinking about

bringing a fourlegged

little

bundle of fun

into the family,

then read on as Sophie's Pet Care® present some

of the important things that need to be

considered…

Cute puppies can all too quickly become big,

strapping dogs, so you need to start by asking

yourself whether you and your tribe can cope

with them as the grow up. Are you willing to

integrate a dog into your family for the next

fifteen years, through all the good times and the

bad? You see, your puppy really needs to

become a family member right from the very

start. It's rather like making a commitment to

having a child; and just like a child they can be

time-consuming and demanding. ong>Theong>y'll need

love, attention and plenty of exercise, both

mental and physical.

Keeping a dog costs money too; in addition to

occasional vet bills, there's the cost of food,

insurance and, when you're away or out at work,

the added cost of external care. Puppies can be

perfect little people around the home, or they

can be little devils, chomping happily through

your favourite furnishings. ong>Theong>y love leaving

mud and hair everywhere too. ong>Theong> point is, if

you love your house more than your dog, this

might not be a match made in heaven!

If you're renting your home and still think a

puppy is for you, then before you get too excited

about the prospect, you'll need to check whether

your landlord will agree to it. Some don't. Even if

you're a homeowner, you'll still need to make

sure your home and garden are suitable. ong>Theong>

latter needs to be secure and escape-proof.

Puppies love to explore and will wiggle through

the tiniest holes to taste that big, exciting, wide

world that lies outside of your garden.

ong>Theong> next thing to consider is whether your house

is a suitable size for the breed you have in mind.

Some little dogs that you would perhaps expect

to be fine in a small house like, for example,

terriers, detest being cooped up, and although

some of the bigger breeds don't mind being

couch potatoes all day, too much inactive

lounging around doesn't do their health any

good. So choose a breed that fits, not only your

fancy, but also your home environment.

Finally, you need to take a hard, long look at

yourself. Can you honestly say you'd make a

responsible dog owner and look after that cute,

perfect puppy throughout its whole life, come

what may? Will you give it the life it deserves in

return for the wonders of canine companionship

and a unique brand of unconditional love rarely

found elsewhere?

Well, if you can answer 'yes' to most of the

questions posed in this piece, but remain

worried about having to leave your puppy now

and again when you're out or at work, and also

can't bear the thought of dumping them into

kennels when you go on holiday, then that's

actually okay, because Sophie's Pet Care® can

solve all that . We can provide specialist,

bespoke home visits for your puppy that will give

them exercise and mental stimulation when you

can't be around, and even arrange wonderful

dog holidays in loving, local homes for your

pampered pooch while you jet off to the

sunshine for a fortnight or

whatever.

WILDLIFE MATTERS ……... to all of us

Welcome to the second Wildlife Matters pages.

In this issue we shall concentrate on telling you

about the conservation management of

Pennington Common.

In June 2011, the Lymington & Pennington Town

Council commenced a ten-year Stewardship

Scheme in conjunction with Natural England.

ong>Theong> Council worked closely with the New Forest

National Park Authority’s Land Advice Service,

who provided free expert guidance in making

their application.

ong>Theong> Management objectives for Upper

Pennington Common are:

• To restore an open common landscape,

characterised by large glades of acid grassland

and heath with small gorse brakes and

scattered gorse bushes and trees.

• To reduce the cover of gorse in order to restore

further areas of open species-rich grassland,

and purple moor grass-dominated heath.

• To protect historical earth banks.

• To implement a rotational gorse management

plan to encourage bushy regrowth with more

open scrub ‘edge’ habitat favoured by birds

such as Dartford Warbler, Nightingale,

Stonechat, Tree Pipit and Whitethroat. Also to

provide a constant resource of suitably aged

bushes for nesting.

• Create a range of suitable conditions including

wood edge, light scrub cover, scattered trees,

short grazed turf and areas of bare ground to

favour a diversity of heathland birds, including

ground nesting birds such as Nightjar and

Woodlark, invertebrates and reptiles.

Rose, Lesser Bladderwort, Dodder and Matgrass.

Also nationally rare Reddish Buff moth.

Target Species:

Nightjar:

A New Forest speciality and a bird that could be

encouraged to the Pennington Common. Listen

out next May & June for its ‘churring’ nighttime

call.

Pale-heath Violet: Recorded within heath at

Upper Pennington Common

Soft-leaved Sedge: Also recorded on the

Common.

Existing special species on Upper Pennington

Common:

Nationally Scarce Soft-leaved Sedge, Pale Heath

Violet, Wild Chamomile and Upright

Chickweed, with locally uncommon Broadleaved

Cotton Grass, Pale Butterwort, Burnet

Management Methods:

Techniques to encourage suitable habitat for

nesting birds and invertebrates: Young birch and

willow is present amongst a number of more

mature gorse stands. This is removed in

conjunction with the rotational gorse

management. Gorse is managed on a rotational

basis to create diverse age structure.

maintained. In return for completing these

works, the Council are able to claim up to

£5,953 pa from the EU & Natural England pot

for the duration of the ten-year plan. A further

£14,749 for capital works is also available.

Other management includes; the restoration of

species-rich semi-natural grassland, woodland

and lowland heath, maintenance of wood

pasture, parkland, ponds of high wildlife value

and the control of invasive plant species.

Indicators of Success: Cover of shrubs such as

Holly, Hazel, Hawthorn and Blackthorn should

be between 10% and 50%. By year 10,

undesirable species such as Holm Oak,

Sycamore, Rhododendron, Laurel and Japanese

Knotweed should be rare (less than 5% cover).

In all years, populations of nationally scarce

Upright Chickweed and Chamomile has to be

Lousewort: Flowers from April to ong>Septemberong> on

damp acid grassland

A WINNING NIGHT AT THE ROYAL OAK

ong>Theong> transformation of ong>Theong> Royal Oak is evident

before you enter the building, with a beautiful

planting display of hanging baskets and pots in

the garden area. It’s hard to believe it was only

this February that the pub reopened after a major

refurbishment - it feels very established and

inviting.

ong>Theong> calibre and experience of the team shines

through as we were met with a very warm

welcome. It’s no surprise to learn later that a high

proportion have been with Debbie & Duane, the

owners of the Royal Oak, for several years –

showing both loyalty and pride in their role. ong>Theong>

Manager, Darren has a very calm approach, but at

the same time is very clearly in control with

exacting standards. We were in good hands for

our night out!

ong>Theong> menu is a delight – the Head Chef blends firm

favourites with some inventive touches and

additions. It is also good to see the attention to

detail applied for the vegetarian options. Here, it’s

not just the usual choices you always see on

standard menus. For example, one of the specials

was a vegetable stew with horseradish dumplings.

We were knowledgeably informed all the food is

freshly prepared and the ingredients sourced

locally where possible. Darren has previously

worked on the supply side of the business and

clearly understands from his background the

importance of food provenance.

And, so for our starters – my choice of curried

vegetable samosa with a sweet chilli dip was a

success from the specials selection. ong>Theong> samosas

were nicely bite size, crisp, with the right edge of

spice. My husband’s starter of the peppered

mackerel pate, beetroot & chilli chutney with a

watercress salad & toasted brioche was

beautifully served. ong>Theong> coarse texture of the pate

was a delight and appropriately peppered for that

bit of extra body.

Attention to detail was noticeable throughout.

Service was attentive and very friendly but well

balanced, so not overbearing. We also started to

notice some lovely touches. We ordered a glass

of wine which was served elegantly in a small

chilled carafe. ong>Theong> chardonnay was very pleasing

- fully flavoured and with a buttery texture.

Our main courses were both impressive. My

choice: a wonderful Caribbean curry , of jerk

chicken leg, coconut rice & beans with a mango

salsa. ong>Theong>

dish

looked

beautifully

colourful,

with the

taste

matching

the presentation. As a bit of a test, my husband

ordered the 14oz T bone steak. I’ve known him

many a time to send his dish back, but this one

was spot on – perfectly medium rare &

accompanied with fresh seasonal vegetables.

Both of us usually pass

on dessert ,but here the

homemade selection

tempted us. ong>Theong>

strawberry cheesecake

was creamy but light and

evidently full of fresh

fruit – in a word yummy.

ong>Theong> food at the Royal Oak is clearly not your usual

pub food – this is quality restaurant standard, in a

friendly and relaxed setting. And, all very

reasonably priced. In summary a winner.

This was reinforced at the end of the night with a

charity raffle in aid of Oakhaven Hospice and

Wave 105 cash for Kids. Such was the generosity

of the donations, most tables won at least one

prize, us included!

TRAVEL guide

MAURITIUS: ong>Theong> beautiful sights

and sounds of the island

Christina Pegler

I have just returned from a

wonderful ten day trip to

Mauritius, and I thought this

was a great opportunity to

share with you the beautiful

sights and sounds of this

island.

Mauritius is a small island

situated in the Indian Ocean

off the East Coast of Africa,

and can be driven around in

around two hours. It has

stunning beaches as well as

beautiful waterfalls and

scenery. ong>Theong>re are a variety

of things to explore - from

tea plantations and

nature parks. ong>Theong>re is also

much to do - from golf and

water sports activities to

snorkelling and swimming,

or simply watching the sun

setting on a catamaran.

This year Mauritius

celebrates its 50 th

anniversary of its

independence from Britain.

ong>Theong>re are many influences

which show through in

Mauritius; African, Asian,

and European (especially

French and British). ong>Theong>

language spoken is still

mainly French, although

English is widely understood.

Mauritius is surprisingly good

value. ong>Theong> hotel options are

countless - although, I can

highly recommend eight that

I visited from Beachcomber

Tours.

ong>Theong> town of Grand Baie is in

the North West, and I spent

one day negotiating my way

around the area, relying on

the generosity and

friendliness of the locals….

which is there in abundance!

Another day was spent

driving from North to the

South of the island, visiting

different points of interest

on the island. This enabled

me to understand how easy

and enjoyable it is to drive

around. ong>Theong>y drive on the

left which helps!

ong>Theong> climate in Mauritius is

tropical. ong>Theong>y are in the

southern hemisphere -

thereby being opposite to

the UK. ong>Theong> wettest but

hottest months are January

and February. Although as in

all tropical climates, the rain

does not last long and it’s

soon dry after a downpour.

Winter is May to October

where the temperature is

between 20 – 26 degrees , so

still very pleasant.

Flights from the UK are

available direct from

Heathrow with Air Mauritius

or Gatwick with BA and

indirect via Dubai with

Emirates. ong>Theong> direct flight

time is 12 hours and the time

change is four hours on

GMT.

No visa is required for UK

passport holders to visit.

If you would like much more

information about Mauritius

please contact ong>Milfordong> Travel

on 01590 644899, email us

at enquiries@milfordtravel.com

LOCALS MAKING THE HEADLINES

BRIDGET: THE ROYAL ACADEMY

It took many months to paint ‘ong>Theong>

Girls’ (Acrylic) in between jobs and family - a

hectic life! I knew the deadline for the Royal

Academy (RA) Summer Exhibition was

January, so I had to finish my painting and

submit by then. ong>Theong> exhibition in Piccadilly,

has as many as 20,000 entrants, and only

1,200 are usually picked each year. This year

Grayson Perry was heading up the team which

I didn’t know until after the photographic

submission.

You are allowed to enter two pieces of art,

and it begins with an email to the RA,

payment and submission of a photograph of

your art……ong>Theong>n the wait from January to

May……...

ong>Theong> next stage was to actually take your

piece to London for final judging. I received

an email to tell me both of my paintings were

successful and through to this round. Down to

4,000 entrants! Beauteous Huts (Colourful

Hordle beach huts) and ong>Theong> Girls (Two Zebras

Mum and daughter). Exciting, but with both

pictures being 2ft by 3ft, taking them into

London was a slightly daunting exercise. ong>Theong>re

were also many rules and regulations about

attaching bar codes and tags. ong>Theong>y also

needed to be perfectly wrapped. I had to act

quickly. Help from a loving sister – Job done!

ong>Theong>n the final wait, but with the next email I

learnt that ong>Theong> Girls were successful. ong>Theong>y

were to be exhibited in Grayson Perry’s bright

yellow room – Hooray! I had though to get

the Beauteous Huts back and they are now

currently for sale at ong>Theong> Salt Marsh Gallery in

Lymington High Street.

ong>Augustong> and have been sold on Press & Party

night to a London buyer before the exhibition

opened.

I had a wonderful time in London, with a

Church service for the artists, champagne and

lunch at the Royal Academy. I have also met

so many interesting people - Normal everyday

people aged from 18 through to 80 years of

age, who have all created something special.

I always said I would submit until I was 80

years old and now that I have been successful

I have reached my life goal. I also said “that’s

it I won’t submit again” …………. but I will!

ong>Theong> experience was fabulous! I loved my Girls

from the moment I started to paint them, and

I admit I miss them a little.

ong>Theong> Girls’ represent my Mum and me (My

Mum is 80 this year). ong>Theong>y are proudly

hanging in ong>Theong> Summer Exhibition until mid.

Reiki is a simple, natural, non-intrusive

method of energy healing which allows

positive energy to flow through the hands

of the practitioner, encouraging the body

to balance and heal itself. ong>Theong> word

‘Reiki’ is made up of the Japanese words

– ‘Rei’ meaning ‘universal’ and ‘Ki’

meaning ‘life force energy’.

Reiki treats the whole person - body,

mind and soul, resulting in many

beneficial effects including relaxation,

stress reduction and a feeling of peace,

security and well-being. ong>Theong> client

remains fully clothed whilst the

practitioner uses a series of hand

positions either on or slightly above the

body, according to the client’s

preference. A warm, soothing energy

flows from the hands into the client,

promoting relaxation, releasing tension

and helping to balance the body’s energy

centres (‘chakras’) on a very deep level.

Some people experience the energy as

heat, others as coolness, some as tingling

or a vibration, others see colours and

some feel nothing at all although the

universal energy is always working.

Experiences differ from person to person

and from session to session, but Reiki can

Mrs Alex Jennings

ong>Theong> Will Writing Company Insolvency

At the turn of the year, ong>Theong> Will Writing

Company of Nottingham withdrew its

application to be registered with the

Solicitors Regulation Authority (the

regulatory body for solicitors). Although

the company was one of the more

successful will writing companies, lasting

for some 28 years, it has now gone into

insolvency. If your will was prepared by

this company it may now be held by

Deedbank, a company with directors from

the same family, who advertise storage

charges of £4.95 a month.

Companies House records show many

such incorporated will writers are now

dissolved and quickly forgotten. This

could be disastrous if a signed original

will, or a copy of a lost, revoked or

accidentally destroyed will, is required

from a will writer after the death of the

testator.

Choosing a will writer can be influenced

by price or advertising, as will writers and

estate planners often “mail shot”

potential clients (Solicitors are not

permitted to do this). If you are thinking

of using such a business, do check their

employees’ qualifications, how long they

keep their records and the cost of storing

your documents.

In ong>2018ong>, Heppenstalls celebrate their

125th anniversary in Lymington and 95th

anniversary in New Milton. Hence we

have served our local community for a

very long time. If you are thinking of

reviewing your will (or making one for the

first time), we should be delighted to help

you.

We can come visit you at your home to

discuss your needs, or arrange an

appointment at any of our offices.

ong>Milfordong> on Sea Historical Record Society



[MOSHRS] has now launched its new website which

presents a wealth of the history of this area

covering subjects such as People and Families,

ong>Milfordong> at war, Salt and Earth, Religious Life and

House Histories.

You may have already seen these signs on some of

the houses in the village, the funny square in the

middle is a QR code (abbreviated from Quick

Response Code) which enables a smartphone to

link directly to the MOSHRS website to give a brief

background of the history of the house.

ong>Milfordong> has nearly 50 listed buildings all of which

have a story to tell either about the property or

about some of the people who lived there. ong>Theong>

object of the House Histories section of the website

is to tell the stories of these and also for many of

the other non-listed buildings in the village that

have an interesting story to tell.

Completed so far are ong>Theong> Beach House, Bay Trees,

Foot in the Door, New Seasons, Polly’s Pantry, No.

64 and ong>Theong> Cave. This is an ongoing activity and

there will be many more to follow.

ong>Theong> stories of these buildings are usually about

development over time and are not recorded in

general historical research but tell about the

ordinary places and people. ong>Theong> information

generally comes from the property’s deeds or from

the people who live in them or know something

about them. Research into them depends on input

from the current inhabitants of the village ,so if

anyone would like to be involved in recording the

history of their house or about one that they are

familiar with, please contact MOSHRS via:

Development of 42 homes on MOS1 site –

land north of School Lane

A packed public meeting was held in the

Community Centre on 20 th June, for local

residents to have their say about the

Pennyfarthing Homes Ltd proposed

development of 42 homes on this site. ong>Theong>

Parish Council would like to thank all those

who attended and all those who lodged their

comments with the District Council.

ong>Theong> Parish Council lodged the following

comment with the District Council about the

application:

“Par 4: Recommend REFUSAL.

A great many ong>Milfordong>-on-Sea residents have

objected strongly to the application by

Pennyfarthing Developments for 42 homes

on the above site. ong>Theong> main concerns of the

residents and the objections of the Parish

Council are:

ong>Augustong>/ong>Septemberong> ong>2018ong>

ong>Theong> land formed part of the Green Belt

until it was de-selected in order to build 30

affordable homes. ong>Theong> village has pressed for

the building of affordable homes for local

people and agreed that, in accordance with

the Local Plan, this Green Belt land should be

used to provide these much-needed homes.

ong>Theong> Planning Inspector ratified this

development and ruled that no more than 30

houses could be built on the site. Also

included in his ruling was the provision for

public open space, allotments and a drop off

point for the school. ong>Theong> homes were to

consist of 1/3 affordable rented houses, 1/3

shared ownership houses and 1/3 small

market homes.

ong>Theong> current application for 42 homes would

supply 6 flats as the only affordable rented

accommodation - 4 x 2 bedroom and 2 x 1

bedroom. In addition to 6 shared ownership

two bedroom houses ,the developer has

included 7 ‘starter’ homes as part of its

obligation to provide affordable housing.

ong>Theong>se starter homes will not be an option for

either the local families on the housing

register who are in desperate need of rented

accommodation in ong>Milfordong> or for other

families or young people seeking to join the

housing ladder. Indeed, NFDC’s own Strategic

Housing Officer has pointed out that a family

would have to earn around £42,000 pa to be

able to buy one of these houses.

Please mention ong>Theong> ong>Villageong> ong>Voiceong> when responding to adverts

35


We object most strongly to the assertion

that this provision can form part of the

affordable obligation. ong>Theong> remainder of

the houses proposed for the site are large

‘executive’ style houses, of which ong>Milfordong>on-Sea

has no shortage.

ong>Theong> Parish Council, the School and

residents are all convinced that the siting

of the car park is too close to a hazardous

bend on the B3058. ong>Theong> drop-off must be

to the south of the school, where the

Planning Inspector had envisaged it. No

more Green Belt land should be

concreted over.

This application does nothing to alleviate

the shortage of affordable housing for

local people.

This application contravenes the ruling of

the planning inspector and the terms of

the local plan.

This application disregards Green Belt

policy.

ong>Theong> Parish

Council asks

that you

refuse this

application.”

At the time

of writing,

the decision

is yet to be

made by the

District

Council but

we will

report

further in

the next edition and on our website .

Local Plan Review Consultation—MOS2

New Forest District Council has launched

the public consultation for the next phase

of the Local Plan process, which will see

over 10,500 new homes built across the

District by 2036. In the proposals, ong>Milfordong>

will see at least 110 new homes built on

the site north of Manor Road (see plan

below). ong>Theong> closing date for comments

is 12 th ong>Augustong>.

For more information about the

proposals and to lodge your comment,

visit NFDC’s website: http://

www.newforest.gov.uk/localplan2016.

Paper copies of the comment form can

also be collected from the Parish Council

office. ong>Theong> Parish Council will decide its

response at the Planning Committee

meeting on 6 th ong>Augustong> in the ong>Villageong> Hall.

Everyone is welcome to come along and

let the Parish Council know their views.

ong>Theong> supporting text from NFDC’s report

(page 120) reads as follows:

“i. Land to the north of Manor Road,

ong>Milfordong>-on-Sea as shown on the Policies

Map is allocated for residential

development of at least 110 new homes

and public open space, dependent on the

form, size and mix of housing provided.

ii. ong>Theong> Master Planning Objectives for the

site as illustrated in the Concept Master

Plan and expanded in the Master

planning Strategic Sites SPD are to create

a well-designed extension to the village

that:

a. Respects and reinforces the strong

rural character of Manor Road and

Barnes Lane, protecting road margins

and creating frontages of similar

character along these lanes.

. Retains boundary tree, hedge and

embankment lines and integrates them

into a walkable network of recreational

greenspace connected to existing

footpaths and to the countryside.

c. Creates a compact pattern of perimeter

blocks, well designed buildings and

intimate streets with enough garden

space internally and along frontages to

create a sylvan setting characteristic of

the local area.

d. Creates a strong and permanent Green

Belt boundary to the north of the current

glass houses, with new development

facing onto a main area of accessible

natural recreational greenspace to be

provided on Green Belt land within the

site boundary.

iii. Site Specific Considerations to be

addressed include:

a. Retention of service access to the

telecommunications mast unless the

mast is relocated.

b. Vehicular access to the site is to be

provided from Manor Road. Barnes Lane

is only suitable for emergency access.

Supporting text

9.80 Site capacity and housing mix will be

tested in detail at the planning application

stage.

9.81 ong>Theong> Infrastructure Delivery Plan should

be read in conjunction with this policy as it

lists the requirements that will be needed to

mitigate the developments impacts on the

local infrastructure. ong>Theong> main infrastructure

requirements for the site are as follows:

• Contributions towards expansion of

Priestlands Secondary School.

9.82 Land north of the east-west track

from Barnes Lane to the

of the scale and quality of the resource and

safeguarding the amenity of nearby

residents, incidental minerals extraction

may be appropriate as part of the

development, for re-use on-site.”

and Officers.

Bob Bishop, Chair of the Parish Council

said: “We are delighted the new playpark is

finally open, just in time for the summer.

worked so hard to make it happen for the

benefit for our village’s families.“

HOW TO MAKE YOUR COMPUTER FASTER

One of the most common complaints I get

is, “My computer is running so much

slower than it used to”….. And the follow

on, “What can I do about it?”

Why does this happen? Everytime you

install a new program, the chances are it

will also install another program to check

for updates. For example - your printer

software will be phoning home to see

whether there is anything it should be

downloading, and whether the printer has

enough ink.

ong>Theong> programs themselves are not large,

but they take up space that the operating

system and other programs would

otherwise use. ong>Theong> less space in memory,

the more the computer disk drive has to be

used, and that slows things down.

Stopping programs you don’t need from

running at start-up will help, just make

sure they are not vital to the computer!

Without going into detail, the more a

computer is used, the more likely it is that

files will be split up to fill the available

space on the hard disk. Most of the time

this is dealt with automatically by

Windows, through a process called defragmenting.

If this is not set to work

automatically, running it manually may

help speed things up. Apple computers

work differently so they shouldn’t have

this problem.

But there are a couple of things you can do

that, whilst not guaranteed, are very likely

to speed up your computer:

Increase the amount of main memory. If

you are trying to run Windows with 4Gb or

less, increasing to 8Gb or above should

make a difference to the speed, but only if

you are running a 64bit operating system.

You’ll need to Google how to find out how

to check this, as that is beyond the scope

of this article.

Another way of speeding things up is to

install a SSD replacement hard disk if you

have a standard hard disk. SSD disks use

memory chips, and work much quicker

than mechanical hard disks. In fact you

may prolong the need to upgrade for

several years by doing so.

In both cases http://uk.crucial.com/ is a

good place to start . ong>Theong>y have the facility

to download a test program which will tell

you what components will work with your

computer. ong>Theong>re are cheaper places to buy

memory and SSD drives, but my

experience with them so far has been

good.

In the Garden

with Alan Edmondson of

Bowercot Garden Design

ong>Augustong>/ong>Septemberong>

Gardening Tips

• Watering is most important. Even if it does rain, check any containers and baskets in

sheltered positions.

• Collect black spot infected leaves from beneath roses on a regular basis. Do not compost

them.

• Trim established hedges such as box, holly, beech and yew. ong>Theong>se are all only given an

annual cut.

• Clear duckweed from the surface of pools.

• Cut gladioli as soon as the lower flowers open but leave at least four leaves on the plant in

order to feed the developing corm.

• Pick sweet corn cobs as soon as the seeds exude ‘milk’, when pressed with your finger nail.

• Cut out fruited loganberry canes to the base and tie in the new stems.

• If mare’s-tail is a problem, crush the stems before applying glyphosphate weedkiller.

• If you are thinking of building a rockery or raised alpine bed, choose a sunny, well drained

position away from trees.

• Continue to dead head roses – this should ensure they bloom throughout the month.

• Take cuttings of lavender and protect them in a cold frame.

• Pick remaining tomatoes and lay them out to ripen in a warm place, but not in direct

sunlight.

• Prepare containers for planting spring flowering bulbs. Try a bottom layer of tulips, a middle

layer of daffodils and a top layer of crocus.

• Do not forget to feed the fish in your pond. Live food may be becoming scarce and they

need to build up their reserves for the winter.

Saltgrass Marsh - Nature Reserve

As mentioned in earlier reports, the Hampshire

Wildlife Trust (HWT) manage the marsh on

behalf of owners New Forest District Council.

We are pleased to report that the Environment

Agency has installed an adjustable inlet flap in

the outer sea wall alongside the Marsh. ong>Theong>

controllable flap is set at just 30mm (1 inch) and

lets much needed saltwater into the marsh to

re-salinate the ditches and pools. Over the

years, the marsh had become neglected. ong>Theong>

freshwater draining into the marsh from nearby

farmland, has diluted the ditches brackishness

to a point where there is little standing water

anywhere across the site.

into the Solent, leaving a small amount of

saltwater in the marsh which benefits

invertebrates. In the long-term waterfowl

should return to the marsh.

To address any local concerns, the controllable

flap is being trialled for 3 summer months (July

ong>Septemberong>) by the Environment Agency.

Dried out Marsh

HWT have also agreed a three-year rotational

scrub and vegetation management plan with

Natural England to help return the SSSI and

Nature Reserve to its earlier richness.

Photographic site levelling and vegetation

survey evidence, shows that the southern half

of the marsh will respond well to the ingress of

saltwater. However, the northern (Saltgrass

Lane side), will remain quite dry, and hence the

need to continually remove sapling willow and

scrub species on a rotational basis.
