Welcome to the October/November

Lymington Directory.

Through editing this magazine, I’ve really

been enjoying getting to know much

more about our local groups and

charities. The people involved are truly

inspiring.

The other key aim of the magazine is to

support local trades people and

businesses. We have a wealth of

expertise and experience on our

doorstep. I’m so encouraged to always

look locally, as I hope you do as well.

We have a fully packed edition this

month - I hope you enjoy reading.

With best wishes,

WILDLIFE MATTERS ……... to all of us

‘LANDSCAPE SCALE CONSERVATION’

Ecologists, conservationists and our larger

wildlife bodies are regularly talking about how

best we can look after British wildlife. The term

‘landscape-scale conservation’ has been coined

and seems to be on everyone’s lips.

Comparatively small, often isolated, nature

reserves dotted around Britain’s coast or inland

are no longer suitable alone for the future

needs of our diminishing wildlife. Or, so we are

told and with many animals rapidly declining,

larger steps need to be taken.

So, how real is the threat of losing species in our

countryside and cities? On the face of what I

see locally, not much. That is however, until you

look at the wider picture. Species that have

been here for hundreds of years are in decline.

Farmland is under intense pressure to produce

more food, often it appears, for unrealistic

returns.

Naturalist and broadcaster Stephen Moss says

in his book ,‘Wild Kingdom’ about the farmed

countryside, ‘Apart from the gently waving

heads of corn in the summer’s breeze, there is

an eerie silence. Nothing moves. The flutter of

butterflies, their colours catching the eye as they

reflect the sunshine; the buzz of bumblebees as

they flit from flower to flower; even the

wildflowers themselves – are all absent’.

Stephen continues, ‘We only need to find out

what we have lost since the end of the Second

World War to realise just how much has

vanished during the last 70 years – the span of a

human lifetime – we have lost 99 per cent of our

hay meadows, 96 per cent of our chalk and

limestone grasslands, half a million farm ponds

and 300,000 miles of hedgerows – enough to

stretch from the earth to way beyond the

moon’.

The Wildlife Trusts have put in place a ‘Nature

Recovery Network’ which includes trying to

bring nature into the places where we work and

live and to encourage farmers to make room for

colourful wildflower strips running alongside

hedgerows. They contend that children seem to

understand that the natural world is the

foundation of our wellbeing. The Trust’s 4 stage

plan is to: 1) Protect the wildest places, 2) Make

connections through (‘stepping-stones’ and

‘wildlife corridors’) between these larger places,

3) Provide a bigger overall area for wildlife and

4) Find space for wildlife in the wider landscape.

Wildlife Potential:

• 250,000 miles of roadside verges for

wildlife.

• c.430,000 hectares of gardens to help

important pollinators such as

bumblebees.

• Public open spaces of which two-thirds

is short mown grass, whereas,

wildflower meadows support eight

times more wildlife

• 70% of UK land is farmland where

creating habitat for wildlife is vital.

So, what can we do to help? There is no real

opportunity to help in this new ‘landscape scale’

vision, but what every one of us can do is

manage our gardens a little better for ‘wildlife’,

or maybe, help your local conservation

volunteers undertake work in nearby public

open spaces and nature reserves.

The rewards for health and well-being and

just doing your bit for nature, is

immeasurable. ‘Every one of us can do a

little, but together we can do a lot’.

NURTURING YOUR IMMUNITY

Your immunity is close to our hearts at The

Natural Health Hub. But for the complementary

therapists at The Hub immunity means way

more than just the mechanics of fighting off

colds, coughs and winter bugs. We nurture you

holistically… in mind, body and (if you’re into it)

soul too.

Yes, we have a highly effective herbal Immune

Boost Mix (comprising echinacea, astragalus

and sambucus), which we recommend

everyone should take from now until April. But

immunity is more fundamental and deeper than

just marshalling our T-cells to fight bacteria and

viruses – we believe in a whole mind/body

approach. Autumn is the time to regroup and

draw in our energy. Just as the trees are

drawing in and letting go of their leaves, it is

time for us to let go of what we have been

carrying around all year that is no longer of any

use. Here are five ways to tune into autumn

mellowness and lay the foundations of your

immunity (both mind and body) for over the

next year.

of kilter. Get your kids’ mucus in check with

homeopathy. Sue Leach jokes she’s ‘queen of

snot’, helping children fight colds, coughs and

ear infections, and avoid antibiotics.

RESTORE

Having a massage not only helps you relax, it

also benefits your immune system. Research

shows it increases levels of defensive

lymphocytes and cytokines, and decreases

cortisol (our stress hormone). Our holistic

fusion massage goes a lot deeper than just

releasing muscular tension. Tracey-Lee

Glasspool intuitively reads what you need on

the day, emotionally and physical, fusing

traditional massage with her expertise in reiki,

reflexology and aromatherapy.

RETUNE

Polarity therapy, a groundbreaking holistic

therapy, is a must to retune. Jane Seaman

balances and enhances the magnetic forces

running through your mind, body and emotions

with hands-on, talking and energy-restoring

techniques. Great for pain and stress/anxiety.

RELAX

With life’s busyness it’s so hard to still our

minds and bodies to achieve that autumn

mellowness. So what better a time to join

Hannah Bimpson’s yogic relaxation or the

relaxing therapeutic harmonies of Sonja

Gundry’s sound bath.

Sue Leach, owner

REPLENISH

In Traditional Chinese Medicine the organs we

should look after most now are our lungs and

large intestine. Both enable us to gather in what

is essential and let go of what’s not needed.

So perfect time to think about getting your diet

on track with naturopathic nutrition. Rhi

Hepple advises on the foods to eat, how not to

stoke on stodge and which vitamins/minerals

you may need to replenish if your system’s out

NOTES FROM THE SOLENT CELLAR

What’s in Your Wine?

Keeping up with trends and changes in tastes is

one of the many enjoyable things about

running an independent shop. We are able to

react quickly, adding or changing lines, and

there are several areas of our buying that has

evolved this way. We have increased our range

of organic and biodynamic wines, low or no

sulphur and vegan wines.

Which brings me to this interesting topic, what

is in your wine?

Wine has been produced for thousands of

years and was previously the way of preserving

what would go unused or rotten. People also

drank wine with it being cleaner than drinking

water at the time and it was seen as bringing

many health benefits.

Modern advances in technology and the

demand for more affordable wine has led to

the industrialisation of winemaking

techniques, very much in the way that

modern/supermarket bread has mostly

replaced home baking. Home baking where

just three ingredients were used, nowadays

look on the back of your packet of bread and

there are many more than that!

So, what is likely

to be in the

average bottle of

plonk? The list is

long and can

include things like

sulphur to

preserve the

wine, as well as

added tannin,

acidifiers, sugar,

clarifying agents,

cultured yeasts

and stabilisers.

Healthy organic vineyard in the

Sierra de Gredos

Organic Wine - This is where the grapes are

grown organically, without the use of harmful

pesticides, herbicides, fungicides and chemical

fertilisers, therefore better for you and the

environment.

Sulphur in Wine - This is used as a

preservative, keeping the wine from oxidising

and isn’t necessarily a bad thing in small

quantities. However, some people find they

react to it, especially at high levels and so it is

nice to be able to offer a selection of low or no

added sulphur wines. Sulphur levels in organic

wines tend to be much lower.

Vegan/Vegetarian Wine - More often than not

fining agents are used in large scale wine

production - wineries can use animal byproducts

such as milk and egg white to filter

any sediment. We offer a great selection of

wines from smaller producers who don’t fine

or filter their wines at all, as well as those that

use non-animal products for this process and

therefore are vegan and vegetarian friendly.

Here is just a small selection of our wines that

we can highly

recommend

trying...

DOGS COME TOO!

Record numbers of British holidaymakers are

choosing to go off on vacation with their dogs

instead of leaving them behind. It's not just UK

holidays either; some intrepid dog owners are

even calling on their vets, and paying to have

them issue special pet passports to enable their

four-legged friends to travel abroad with them!

an infusion of elderflower, linden blossom,

ginseng and water or 'Pawsecco Rose'; (same

again but with carrot added). For the more

butch-type dogs there's good old 'Bottom

Sniffer Beer' containing dandelion and burdock.

And to round off the meal, Fido can choose 'old

sock ice cream' too. Strange but true!

In recent years, our dogs have become much

more important members of our families and

now there's a growing demand for dogfriendly

self-catering cottages, hotels and even

luxury villas that don't just tolerate dogs, but

actively encourage them to come too.

Here are some examples:

Even the upper echelons of polite society are

getting in on the 'dogs come too' act: In

London's fancy Knightsbridge at the five-star

Egerton House Hotel, while well-heeled guests

tuck into their scones and finger sandwiches in

the drawing room, their dogs can enjoy their

own special 'Dog Afternoon Tea'.

The four-star, 15th century Swan at Lavenham

Hotel and Spa has a renowned restaurant, and

has now created a special in-the-room dinner

menu especially for its canine guests.

In the 12th century Tuscan Castello Del Nero,

Michelin-starred chefs fuss around

preparing bespoke meals for dogs who come in

hungry after a day sniffing around the 740

acres of olive groves and vineyards and cooling

off in a couple of lakes.

Channels Bar and Brasserie in Essex supply an

extensive range of luxury treats for dogs from

their 'DoggyDining' menu. There are old

favourites that are sure to please, like

sausages and rashers of bacon alongside

choices such as 'cheese and crackers', which

are actually chunks of cheddar with chicken

rawhide crackers served with an apple

garnish. It doesn't end there either; a range of

side orders like doggy crisps (crunchy

vegetable crisps made for dogs), doggy

popcorn (made in Britain especially for dogs

too and 'with 100% natural ingredients') is

available. And If some of that sounds a bit dry

for the canine palate, then pampered pooches

can wash it all down with 'Pawsecco White';

It's a growing trend, but if your holiday simply

doesn't work with your dog but you really don't

like the idea of leaving your four-legged family

member in kennels, then Sophie's

Pet Care® have the perfect solution: We

regularly arrange VIP holidays for your dog in

the comfort of loving, family homes in our

area, so that your pooch has a holiday that's at

least as good as your own! Pick up the dog and

bone and call ………………. or visit

sophiespetcare.com for more information.

TRAVEL guide

Having flown into Bangkok via Dubai (splitting

the flight into two digestible 6 and a half hour

sections), we arrived to warm and dry

conditions despite it being rainy season.

Bangkok is a crazy, busy, fascinating city and a

great place to start a visit to Thailand as long as

you have a relaxing end planned! We visited the

obligatory night markets and wandered around

the streets with vendors selling everything from

fresh fish to fake handbags.

The following day we had an adventure

planned. We got up early and were driven 2

hours out of the city into the lush green

countryside to a place called , The Flight of the

Gibbons to do a few hours of zip lining! It was

less terrifying than I had anticipated, and really

very beautiful being above the treetops and

zipping down 30 individual wires. The day was

finished off with a trip around an open zoo

where the animals were in (sometimes

worrying) touching distance.

The next day we were picked up at the crack of

dawn to go to the floating market, which is an

amazing

experience.

We travelled

along the river

on a long tail

boat and then

got dropped

off and left to

our own

devices for a

few hours. We

chose to see

the markets by

boat and so

paid 100 baht for a lady to row us through the

canal network. We could stop at whichever

THAILAND: A live travel piece for this edition as

Christina is currently in situ! This is part one of her adventure.

boat we wanted to buy from. They have a full

array of fruits and vegetables for sale, as well as

beautifully fresh food being cooked on the river

boats. You can also buy souvenirs and clothes

here. It was a lovely morning and got us back

into Bangkok in time to visit the Grand Palace

and Wat Pho, both of which are serene and

quiet oasis in the middle of the bustling city.

After a few busy hot days in Bangkok we were

ready for the relaxing part of our trip, and made

our way to the airport for our flight to Koh

Samui. It was a seamless journey and within 3

hours of leaving our hotel in the city ,we were

on a beautiful white beach on Koh Samui. The

island is large and there is plenty to see and do

here. The plan is an island tour to see the

waterfalls and rock formations, but then also to

take a boat to Koh Phanang to do some

snorkelling in the crystal-clear waters.

I am heading back to Thailand in October to see

Elephant Hills and visit Phuket, so my next

travel piece will be an insight into another side

of Thailand.

The best time to visit is usually December to

May but the weather is glorious here in Koh

Samui at the moment. Prices are at their lowest

during our summer. There are many direct and

indirect flight options with various airlines, so

we are spoilt for choice. The time change is 7

hours and the local currency is the Thai Baht.

At Milford Travel we can arrange all of your

travel requirements to Thailand so please

call 01590 644899 or visit us at 78 High

Street, Milford on Sea or email

enquiries@milford-travel.com.

We would love to help!

FACIAL REFLEXOLOGY TM (with Natural Face Lift Massage),

REFLEXOLOGY & PREGNANCY REFLEXOLOGY

Facial reflexology, however, has added

benefits besides helping your body

function at its optimum, including a

reduction of fine lines and puffiness,

rejuvenating skin tissue and encouraging a

more toned, radiant and glowing

complexion. Combined with Natural Face

Lift Massage, facial reflexology can give the

appearance of lifting the skin & facial

muscles.

A relatively new therapy, Facial

Reflexology (The Bergman Method) is a

buzz word amongst the red carpet and

works on the same principles as foot

reflexology stimulating reflex points

associated with all systems and organs of

the body. The proximity to the brain and

cranial nerves ensures a profoundly

relaxing and subtly powerful experience

with some uniquely therapeutic benefits.

Facial & foot reflexology treatments aim to

reduce the symptoms and effects of many

common ailments including stress,

insomnia, migraines, IBS, back pain,

arthritis, anxiety

and hormonal

disorders. Both

treatments are

extremely

popular during

pregnancy and

can be used to

help promote a

shorter, natural

labour.

The 100% natural non-invasive treatment

can be combined with Natural Facelift

Massage or foot reflexology to provide a

blissful combination of wellbeing and

rejuvenation. Treatments are cumulative.

DRIVING SAFELY FOR LONGER

There are currently just over 5.1 million people

in the UK aged 70 and over driving on our

roads, and the expectation is that this will

double if not treble in the next 20 years as we

all live longer. The oldest person who holds a

driving licence is a male aged 107 years.

Hampshire is shown as having the highest

number of older drivers outside London.

We know that older motorists have a wealth of

experience, confidence and tolerance.

However, sight, hearing, reaction time and

judgement of speed and distance may not be as

sharp as it once was.

Fragility increases with age, so injuries tend to

be more serious and recovery takes much

longer. Casualty rates do increase for car

drivers aged over about 65, and the fatality rate

increases significantly.

That’s where we come in. The Older Drivers

Forum is about keeping mature motorists on

the road safely for longer. Whether that’s

helping giving you practical and informative

help and support to continue driving or

pointing you in the right direction for an

assessment to identify your driving needs –

from wing mirror adapters to an elevated

driving seat – we’re here to help.

We’re a not-for-profit group made up of

experts in road safety from across Hampshire

and the Isle of Wight – from representatives

from the emergency services, to charities, local

authorities and businesses specialising in

keeping older people on the road.

If you know an older driver, have contact with

them regularly in your job or are perhaps just

concerned for a friend or relative who is still

driving then the Older Driver Forum may be

able to help.

The forum is holding an Older Driver

Awareness Week, offering advice and tips that

will help older drivers continue to drive safely

or help them to decide when to stop. The

event is free to attend and open between

9.30am to 3pm, no appointment is required

and people can pop in anytime during these

hours. The events are aimed at anyone with an

interest, from older drivers themselves, to

friends and relatives.

Advice will be available on:

• Brushing up your skills.

• Booking a driving assessment.

• Arranging a regular eyesight test.

• Getting advice on health and wellbeing

issues that could affect driving ability.

• Renewing your licence at 70.

• Learning about road safety and

consequences of not being fit to drive.

• Discover alternatives to being

independent without a car

Safety is the top priority; it should be the most

important thing older drivers consider when

there is concern over driving ability. The best

advice is don’t become complacent and wait for

an accident or a near miss to convince a driver

to stop, instead seek advice, support and help.

In the Garden

with Alan Edmondson of

Bowercot Garden Design

October/November

Gardening Tips

• Rake up fallen leaves regularly. If they have appeared diseased during the summer, do not

compost them.

• Sow sweet peas in pots in a cold frame. Remove the covers when the seedlings appear.

• A newly sown lawn can have the grass height reduced by about a half when it is 2-3 inches

high. Repeat cutting the lawn in 3-4 weeks’ time.

• Apples and pears which are ripe should be picked and handled carefully prior to storage a in

a cool, airy position.

• Plant daffodils in the garden. Good dwarf varieties include ‘Tete a Tete’, ‘February Gold’,

‘Jack Snipe’ and ‘Hawera’.

• A number of shrubs such as Buddleja, Forsythia and Philadelphus can be propagated by

taking hardwood cuttings.

• In the vegetable garden, dig over ground as it becomes vacant.

• Remove dead leaves from ornamental pools and thin oxygenating plants.

• Plant out new roses. You can improve the soil with plenty of humus and by adding some

blood, fish and bone fertilizer to the planting hole.

• If you are buying biennials such as wallflowers and sweet Williams, make sure that they are

bushy, as they will not grow much now before flowering.

• Harvest leeks and cauliflowers. Also lift and store root crops such as carrots, turnips and

swedes.

• Ventilate the greenhouse on sunny days. Give the glass a good wash to let in the maximum

amount of light.

• Tomato crops should be cleared from the greenhouse and not left to stand suffering from

Botrytis (Grey Mould) as the fungus spores will flourish in greenhouse conditions.

• Feed the birds regularly. It is important to ensure that they have a constant supply of water.

Colour Cuts:

Platt and Seaby Woodblock Prints

28 September – 25 November 2018

This exhibition explores the work of two of the greatest exponents of colour woodblock

prints, Allen William Seaby and John Edgar Platt. Their work marries English

landscape and wildlife subjects with a Japanese aesthetic. Delicately coloured and

very evocative of their time, these prints are now once again fashionable and highly

sought after.

This is a unique exhibition of both printmakers' work in partnership with the artists’

families. The exhibition also looks at the paintings of Platt’s son Michael and the

prints of Seaby’s grandson Robert Gillmor, as well as featuring prints and drawings

made by Seaby during regular camping trips to the New Forest.

As autumn approaches and we say goodbye

to the long, hot summer of 2018, we need

to adjust to a change in temperature and a

different pace of life. September sees a

return to our busy routines and the daily

stresses at home and work and it’s

important to look after ourselves.

Why not treat yourself to a relaxing Reiki

session to prepare your body and mind for

the autumn?

Reiki (‘rei’ means ‘universal’ and ‘ki’

‘energy’) is a natural, non-intrusive

treatment which allows positive energy to

flow through the hands of the practitioner,

encouraging the body to balance and heal

itself. Reiki treats the whole person - body,

mind and soul - resulting in many benefits

including relaxation, stress reduction,

improved sleep patterns and a general

feeling of peace and well-being.

The client remains fully clothed whilst the

practitioner uses a series of hand positions

either on or slightly above the body,

depending on preference. A warm,

soothing energy flows from the hands to

the client, promoting relaxation, releasing

tension and balancing the body’s energy

centres (‘chakras’). Experiences differ from

person to person and from session to

session – some feel the energy as heat,

others as tingling, some see colours and

others feel nothing at all, but the Reiki is

working regardless and can never do any

harm, only good.

Contact Katharine O’Callaghan on

07951 960898 or visit my website:

www.forest-reiki.co.uk for more

information, prices and testimonials. Free

consultation and £5 off your first session

WHEN IS CHEAP TOO CHEAP?

It quite often happens that in the space of a

short while, the same issue rears its head

from a number of sources. In this case it was

whether buying a cheap computer because

of anticipated light usage is a good idea. As

so often in the tech arena, the first answer is

a resounding, ‘it depends’. However, when it

comes to cheap computers, there is a

baseline under which it is simply not wise to

go.

There are laptop computers currently being

sold with 20-30Gb SSD hard drives. Now I

can’t remember when I last used a computer

with a hard drive that size, but I suspect it

may have been around the turn of the

century, and it seemed a very large hard

drive at the time.

It gets worse. Windows 10 regularly updates

to add new features or fix security holes that

have been discovered. To do that, it

downloads the updates to your computer

before it installs the new files. If you don’t

have enough space to fit the update files

onto your computer hard drive, the update

will fail, and short of having someone put a

larger hard drive in the computer, there’s

little you can do.

I would suggest that 128Gb is the smallest

hard drive you should contemplate, coupled

with 8Gb main memory if possible. It may be

way more than you need, but experience

tells me that’s really the best place to start if

you want to keep using the computer for any

length of time.

Today a large hard drive is measured in

Terabytes. Just putting that in perspective,

you would need around fifty-one 20Gb hard

drives to store one terabyte of data. 20Gb is

a very small hard drive by today’s standards.

‘Ah’, you may say, ‘I only do a bit of Internet

searching and emails, I don’t need a very high

specification computer’. That’s true, if you

don’t make a habit of storing digital photos

or video, you don’t need a very large hard

drive.

When I tell you that according to Microsoft

themselves, 64-bit Windows 10 requires

20Gb of free space on its own, that’s all or

most of your hard drive gone right there. The

trouble then comes that if you want to use

an alternative browser such as Chrome, or

use Microsoft Office, or any other program,

there’s no space left.

Nicola Davies

Is your Discretionary Trust still needed?

Many Wills made before the

introduction of the Transferable Nil

Rate Band in 2007, incorporated a

Discretionary Trust, often using the

family home. This made use of the Nil

Rate Band of the first spouse to die and

therefore saving Inheritance Tax.

Property now held in discretionary

trusts cannot utilise the Residential Nil

Rate Band introduced for Inheritance

Tax last April, which has already

benefited the estates of a number of

our Clients and saved their families

thousands of pounds. However, in

many cases it is only a debt charged on

the property, not the property itself

that is held in the discretionary trust, in

which circumstance the Residential Nil

Rate Band may be available.

If your will hasn't been reviewed in the

last ten years, it may be worth your

while undertaking a review to

appreciate the changes in the

Inheritance Tax allowances, your

circumstances, or those of your family.

The law is ever-changing and what was

applicable when you made a Will say

ten years ago it may not now be the

best way to leave your estate. It is

good practice to review your Will to

ensure that it carries out your wishes

and makes the best use of the tax

exemptions available to you and your

estate.

If you would like to speak to us about

your Will or indeed to review the

current provisions please do not

hesitate to contact us at the Lymington

Office on 01590 689500 or at New

Milton on 01425 610078.

HAPPY 40th BIRTHDAY!

day and repeated at 7.00am and 12.00

noon the next day. Requests are collected

by volunteers who visit the wards every

day discussing what the patient would like

wonderful therapy. During the day a wide
