Welcome to this, the September/October edition of

Northampton Local magazine in which you can win

tickets to see West Side Story at The Royal &

Derngate courtesy of Northampton Musical Theatre

Company (details on pages 54 & 55). Also up for

grabs in our regular Pub Quiz Prize Draw

competition is “Tea for Two” at Beckworth

Emporium. We had an exceptional response to the

Wistow Maze competition that we ran in the last

edition with one lucky person winning a Family

Ticket and four people winning runner up prizes.

We’d like to

congratulate The

Back & Body Clinic

for being awarded Midlands Service Provider of

the Year 2018. Previously awarded

Northamptonshire’s Business of the Year, The

Back & Body Clinic travelled to the major Midlands

Business Awards Ceremony in Leicester and were

delighted to bring back the Trophy to their Moulton

based clinic. The clinic has already helped over

12,000 people

across Northampton

and has 5* reviews

on every feedback

forum. 80% of their patients simply call the clinic

and ‘self-refer’ to see one of the team. Further

details on page 44.

We hope you enjoy this edition of the magazine and

remember, in the next edition, we’ll be offering

FREE tickets to this year’s Festive Gift Fair at the

NEC. As always, until the next time, stay safe x

The Great Outdoors

Long before the perpetual bombardment of emails, social media, stressful jobs and

consumer pressures we lived in the great outdoors. Residing amidst trees, water, the sky

and the weather… innately embraced by nature.

It can be claimed that life was much easier back then. Sure, we lived shorter lives and infant

mortality was pretty scary, but psychologically there was simplicity. Rules were virtually nonexistent.

We didn’t need to work and there were no choices or decisions regarding lifestyle

because everyone had exactly the same - which was not much.

Contemporary life can be crammed full of worries; choices, injustices, confusions, congestion

and anxieties, and many of us struggle to breath under that sort of heaviness. Those

searching for an antidote may be pleasantly surprised to discover the rejuvenating qualities

of getting amongst our historical

alfresco habitat.

It kind of makes sense if you think

about it. Humankind walked

(getting our exercise fix and

boosting our serotonin and

endorphin levels) through

grassland and trees gathering food

for millions of years. Just 12,000

years ago the agricultural

revolution gave us physically hard,

dawn to dusk jobs, but at least we

were under the sky. The

industrial revolution took us out of

the countryside and put us into factories. Most of us have stopped working in the fresh air.

So, does being in nature allow more free ‘head space’ for you to be closer to the true you?

Are you able to be more peaceful - more in the moment - less worried or happier? Many

medical professionals and psychologists indicate that human beings have an inborn desire to

be part of nature calling this phenomenon ‘Biophilia’.

For some, modern life can sometimes seem like a bit of a struggle. Being amongst the flora

and fauna renews the mind and soul.

The evidence is too compelling to ignore, take time to get out there and go for a walk or a run

or just sit in the great outdoors.

Deanna Joyce is a degree qualified psychotherapist based in

Northampton. If you’re struggling with emotional issues, call 07986

Diabetes not taken seriously by UK public, says Diabetes UK

‣ There are 169 diabetes-related amputations each week, which means someone loses a leg,

foot or toe every HOUR

‣ People with diabetes are 32% more likely to die prematurely than people without the condition

‣ 12.3m people in UK at risk of Type 2 diabetes, yet public unaware of the devastating health

complications

Diabetes is a serious condition that can lead to devastating health complications, but new

research by Diabetes UK reveals that only a small percentage of the British public are aware of

how life-changing this condition can be.

A new survey by Walnut Unlimited (1), which spoke to 1,000 people with and without a link to

diabetes shows the extent of this lack of awareness, with only 2% spontaneously saying a stroke,

kidney damage (4%) and heart disease (6%) are complications of diabetes.

Despite amputation and blindness being prevalent diabetes-related complications, only one in four

(25%) of people surveyed said, unprompted, that they were linked to diabetes. Furthermore, the

survey found that no one spontaneously knew diabetes could cause problems in pregnancy and

only 2% knew diabetes could lead to a shorter life span or early death (4%).

Evidence shows just how serious this condition can be. The recent National Diabetes Audit (NDA)

into Complications and Mortality (2) shows that people with diabetes are 32% more likely to die

prematurely than people without diabetes, due largely to the health complications resulting from

diabetes.

Additional figures from Public Health England show there were 8,793 amputations a year on

average between 2014 and 2017 which equates to 169 amputations each week, or one every

hour. The number of minor amputations, which includes a toe, heel or foot also continues to rise

each year.

Similarly, more than 1,600 people have their sight seriously affected by their diabetes every year

in the UK. This means around 30 people a week develop sight loss due to their diabetes.

Diabetes is a significant health crisis, and it is on the rise. Analysis from Diabetes UK shows the

number of people being diagnosed with diabetes has doubled in the last 20 years. There are now

3.7 million people in the UK living with a diabetes diagnosis (90% have Type 2 diabetes) and

around 12.3 million people are at an increased risk of Type 2 diabetes. The condition now affects

more people than any other serious health condition in the UK - more than dementia and cancer

combined.

However, diabetes-related complications can be prevented or delayed

with early diagnosis, support and education to ensure the condition is

managed correctly. To support this, Diabetes UK has launched a new

campaign called ‘Be in the know’ which aims to raise awareness of the

devastating complications associated with diabetes.

Peter Shorrick, Midlands and Eastern Regional Head at Diabetes UK, said: “Losing a

limb, eyesight or having a stroke is devastating and often life-changing. It is vital

people with diabetes receive the right support from their healthcare teams to help

them identify any early signs of a complication.

“Many complications can be prevented or delayed so it is incredibly important that

people with diabetes are vigilant and contact their GP as soon as possible if they

have any concerns.”

(1) Survey carried out by Walnut Unlimited. Sample of 1,000 respondents, including

people with Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes and people close to the condition (family

or friend of someone with diabetes) and a national representative group with no

links to diabetes. Fieldwork was carried out on-line from 3 - 14 May 2018.

The sample breakdown is as follows:

‣ 600 - No link to condition

‣ 100 - Have Type 1 diabetes

‣ 200 - Have Type 2 diabetes

‣ 100 - Have a close family member or friend with diabetes

Diabetes UK has launched a new campaign called ‘Be in the Know’ which calls for

people to be more aware of diabetes-related amputations.

The Advanced Driver Course

NAM was founded 40 years ago. Since then we have helped

close to 1000 people pass the advanced driving test. Our

intention is not to just get people through the test, but to

work with them to permanently improve their driving.

The course is not time limited, nor is there a maximum

number of sessions. Individuals will vary in how long it

takes to reach advanced standard and drive consistently at

that level.

As part of our celebrations we are running a driving

challenge for young drivers. This will be fun experience with

some prizes involved. The main focus of the event is on

observation, planning and manoeuvring. It will be on

Sunday 23rd of September and will start at our display unit

at Police Headquarters in Northampton.

Mighty

Magnus’

Medicine

THE village of Brixworth has rallied in support of a brave six-year-old fighting a rare

childhood cancer.

The story of Magnus, diagnosed last Christmas with stage 4 Neuroblastoma - a

highly aggressive cancer affecting children under 5, has inspired friends,

neighbours and the wider community in the Northamptonshire village to help fund

life-saving treatment not available in the UK.

A host of fund raising events have been held and are planned for the year,

including at Brixworth Primary School where six-year-old Magnus is a pupil. The

Rotary e-club of district 1070 has also taken the charity under their wing and

recently organised a Race Night which raced over £2000.

Meanwhile local tradespeople are generously donating a percentage of their

income. So far, the Mighty Magnus Medicine Fund has raised over £30,000 - and

Magnus’s parents Kate and Sandy are overwhelmed by the support and generosity.

Kate says: ‘This has been such a tough eight months for us since Magnus’s

diagnosis because his treatment has been so intensive, but we could not have got

through it all without the amazing kindness and support from so many people,

including complete strangers who have been so generous and taken Magnus to

their hearts.’

In January Magnus was admitted to the Queens Medical Centre in Nottingham

where scans showed he had a large abdominal tumour and like many other

children with Neuroblastoma the disease had already spread to his bones and bone

marrow. He started chemotherapy the following day.

Approximately one hundred children in the UK will be diagnosed every year with

Neuroblastoma, and of those around half will be in the high-risk category. The

treatment is punishing - a prolonged course of chemotherapy, radiotherapy, stem

cell replacement and immunotherapy over one year, and major surgery to remove

the tumour. It is a challenging illness to treat and Magnus will require constant

monitoring in the years following.

Amazingly Magnus has responded as well as can be hoped to the treatment so far;

an embodiment of the spirit and strength of the Viking warriors that he so loves.

For his Viking-themed sixth birthday party in April Magnus was so determined not to

disappoint his guests that he received a blood transfusion in the morning to give

him the energy to conquer the day. The Mighty Magnus Medicine Fund was

created in May to raise funds for essential treatment not offered by the NHS. At the

time a vital drug required for treatment - Dinutuximab Beta - was not available and

the family faced the prospect of having to fund this themselves.

Thankfully the NHS has now since advised that it will fund this drug following a

public campaign. This has come as a massive relief for Magnus’ family and the

other families who were facing months of uncertainty.

But, in order to give Magnus the best chance of survival and avoid the high risk of

relapse, he will need access to the latest and most innovative treatments currently

only available in the US and elsewhere. Facebook and Just Giving pages have

been set up for the Mighty Magnus Medicine Fund, and they would love to hear

from you if you can assist in any way with organising events or fund raising.

Please visit the Mighty Magnus Medicine Fund Facebook page for details of more

planned events or if you would like to receive our updates please send your email

address to admin@mightymagnusmedicine.co.uk and you will be added to the

mailing list. Alternatively if you’d like to make a donation, please visit our

fundraising page www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/magnusfund.

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!

POEM CORNER

AUTUMN COUNTRYSIDE

Poem donated by David Garrett

Say farewell to summer’s flowers as their life’s course has run

Farewell to all the swallows gone to Africa, looking for the sun

Farewell to balmy evenings and the leaves from off the trees

But as autumn spreads her damping mantle she will with her sunshine tease

White mists roll over meadows with a ghostly chill

Spider webs like strings of pearls the hedgerow seems to fill

But in the distance hear the barking of the geese that now return

To over-winter in our England as their Artic lands they spurn

So as a season fades and dies like the outgoing tide

Bringing more of nature’s miracles to us, in our autumn countryside

Orange horizons over a western hill glows like a fire in the sky

A frosty shroud surrounds the moon silhouettes the wild geese flying by

So another autumn evening starts tranquil, quiet and still

While the countryside drifts off to sleep until the early morning chill.

Unite against dementia at a Memory Walk this Autumn

Helen Crawford, Alzheimer’s Society Services Manager for Northamptonshire

In a few weeks’ time, I’ll be tying my shoelaces and checking the weather

forecast for Alzheimer’s Society’s biggest annual fundraiser.

This year, Memory Walk aims to raise £9million nationally and bring

together a total of 110,000 walkers across the generations.

If you’ve not been to a Memory Walk before, I’d like to encourage you to

unite against dementia and register for free at memorywalk.org.uk.

Dementia devastates lives, but every pound raised through Memory Walk

will help Alzheimer’s Society provide vital information and support,

improve care, fund research and create lasting change for people

affected by the condition.

Each walk sees thousands of people come together to raise money to

support people living with dementia and raise funds for research. We

always ask people to take a moment to reflect on who they are walking

for by leaving a message on the Memory Tree. It’s an emotional moment

as the tree blossoms with hundreds of individual stories of local people

whose lives have been touched by dementia.

It’s an important reminder of the scale of the dementia crisis. Dementia is

now the UK’s biggest killer, with someone developing it every three

minutes.

We need new treatments for dementia now - there have been none in

the last 15 years. We owe it to the 8000 people in Northamptonshire

currently living with dementia to understand the condition better, so that

they can live better.

We believe that research

will beat dementia.

Alzheimer's Society is

committed to spending at

least £150 million over the

next decade on dementia

research.

Northamptonshire walkers

can joins us at Bedford on 23 September, Leamington Spa on

29 September or Leicester on 30 September.

Alternatively, you might consider organising your own walk in your local

area. Your Walk Your Way is a DIY option tailor-made for schools and

supporters to go your own way in a great cause by organising a walk.

Sign up at memorywalk.org.uk

All three events have a short walk of 2km and a longer walk of 6 - 8km.

The shorter walks are suitable for pushchairs and wheelchairs, whilst the

longer walks tend to explore a wider area with slightly more varied

terrain.

We also have a walk at Towcester Racecourse

on 29 September, which you can sign up for at

Eventbrite by searching for ‘Towcester Memory

Walk’.

Let’s hope we get lots of sunshine!
