FOLLOWING THE LYMINGTON BLUE PLAQUES TRAIL

Ray Mayes follows the Lymington Blue Plaques

Trail and focuses on Plaque Number 3 at 26

High Street (south side). This month Ray reveals

the oldest known house to survive in the town.

26-27

High

Street:

Osbornes

Osbornes gentlemen’s outfitters at 26-27 High

Street, by Navarino Court, has medieval origins

and is now recognised to be the oldest known

house to survive in the town.

Often described as ‘Georgian Lymington’, the

High Street actually demonstrates a variety of

architectural heritage: Georgian, Victorian and

Art Deco together with evidence of medieval

origins and some modern 20th century infill.

In his A Walk through Lymington (1972),

Edward King said that “all the best buildings we

have today date between 1700 and 1800”.

On both sides of the High Street, numerous

‘courts’ run off the street, which once formed

additional space for traders behind or between

the street’s ‘burgage plots ’. These plots can be

identified because they are in multiples of

perches - the basic medieval unit of

measurement of 5½ yards (5.03 m) wide.

In 1989, building renovations to the vacant

shop at 26 High Street revealed the property to

contain elements of a late medieval jettied

timber–framed house, believed to date from

the 15 th Century.

The 500-year old wooden structure, the width

of the burgage plot was stripped back to reveal

the essence of a medieval town house. What

made the original structure especially

interesting was that it comprised a box-framed

dwelling with a first floor jetty protruding in

cantilever effect some 0.46m over the front of

the ground floor.

The original building was divided into three

interconnecting bays stretching back some

7.6m with principal roof trusses, one of which

survived the

renovation. At

first floor level,

two bays formed

a large imposing

room with a

curved archway

left open into the

roof space.

During the

Georgian era, the

original timber

and wattle and

daub framework

of the building was concealed with a brick

façade.

Several artifacts were found during the 1989

renovation hidden within the beams or voids.

These included two tiny children’s shoes dating

from the 17 th /18 th centuries (hidden in the

belief of bringing fertility to the house), a

mummified bat, and thousands of hazelnuts left

by mice over the years. The lathe and plaster

walls at ground level had also hidden a

Victorian fireplace.

It is possible to see the exposed beams and

original cantilever structure effect within the

current shop and to experience the building’s

great antiquity – now unique in the High Street.

The Lymington Blue Plaques Trail

The Lymington Blue Plaques Trail comprises 13 blue

plaques established since 1998 by the Rotary Club of

Lymington at sites of historical interest, highlighting

important facts about buildings and people. To

promote the plaques, the Rotary Club has produced a

leaflet describing the Trail. The full trail leaflet is

available from the St. Barbe Museum and Art Gallery.

Dogs take centre stage at Dogstival

Did you know that, in The New Forest, 39%

of residents own a dog? This is way ahead

of the national average of 26% and equates

to about 69,000 forest dogs…. And it's quite

likely that a large percentage of them will

be descending with their owners, on the

2000-acre Pylewell Park Estate near

Lymington on the weekend of the 18th and

19th of May for a huge festival devoted

exclusively to them.

It's called "Dogstival" and it's being hosted

by wildlife enthusiast, proud dog owner and

local resident Chris Packam. There are

arena displays, expert talks and

demonstrations, a behavioural stage and

plenty of activities for your dog to actually

take part in too. Added to that we're being

promised live music and children's

entertainment plus 250 stands and

exhibitors. All in all, it's shaping up to be a

major event in the canine calendar.

About hosting the event, Chris said "The

festival appealed to me because it

combines my favourite things; dogs,

walking in nature, raising funds for causes

that I'm passionate about and spending

time in the New Forest. I'm looking forward

to a great couple of days with fellow doglovers

and their dogs at Dogstival.

Here at Sophie's Pet Care, we like the

concept of this festival too, because it's not

just the usual commercial gathering of

people selling dog-related products, but

rather it involves and actively encourages

visitor's dog participation throughout both

days. Managing Director Sophie Gates said

"It's rare to be able to gain professional

advice and see demonstrations about how

to solve the typical mental and behavioural

problems that dogs increasingly have at

home — and on a lighter note, I love the

idea of the 'Come and Try Zone' with agility

and recall games and the promised K9 aqua

sports too, but the big one for me is that, at

the very heart of Dogstival, it's all about

animal welfare and responsible dog

ownership in The New Forest."

Add a vintage fun fair, views across to the

Isle of Wight, and a packed programme of

arena events, and it really sounds like

something not to be missed. For more

information and tickets, visit

www.dogstival.co.uk If you're a dog-lover,

then you'd be barking mad not to!

WILDLIFE MATTERS ……... to all of us

RSPB – ‘Hope Farm’ Project

This article is the first of two about ‘Re-wilding/

Farmland’ projects. Three-quarters of the UK is

farmland. Farmland birds have fallen between

1970 and the present day by 54%. Turtle Dove

numbers plummeted by 97%, Grey Partridge by

92% and Corn Bunting by 91%.

In 2000, I was privileged to be a founder

member of the RSPB Hope Farm project, a 450

acre arable farm in Knapwell, Cambridgeshire.

The project was designed to demonstrate that

farming for wildlife can work and yet still be

profitable. In part, wildlife has declined

because of the removal of hedgerows and

planting crops right up to boundary edges thus,

removing the last areas for wild flowers and

insects to flourish.

The RSPB purchased Hope Farm to research and

demonstrate management techniques which

could be followed by other farmers. Nearly

twenty years later the experimental farming

project has realised many key aspirations.

Skylark: 2010 - 10 territories. 2015 - 43.

The increase is put down to the use of Skylark

plots i.e. land left free of crops to create safe

areas where birds could breed.

Yellowhammer: 2010 - 14 territories, 2015 - 35

territories. 2000/01 - peak winter count - 2.

2015/16 - 723

Turtle Dove: Since 1995 numbers have dropped

by 94%.

Owing to

loss of

habitat e.g.

hedgerows,

scrub and

woodland,

crucial in

providing

nesting

sites. Low

open

Turtle Dove

vegetation

with an abundance of weed seeds is also

required as is fresh water to drink.

England’s ‘Farmland Bird Index’ (FBI) has

dropped by around 10% since 2000. Hope

Farm’s increased in 2015 by 174% from 2000

levels.

Winter Bird Counts: In 2000 the maximum

winter count was 308. In 2015, it had increased

to 2,542.

The three essential ingredients to increasing

farmland birds:

• Safe nesting places

• Food in spring/summer for growing chicks and

• Food and shelter over the winter.

Marbled White butterfly

Butterflies: 2015 - Numbers up by 223% from

2000 levels. The increase is put down to more

wild flowers along the edges of fields that

provide both food and plants that provide egglaying

niches for the butterflies.

Bumblebees: The farm has three times as many

bumblebees as a nearby farm which doesn’t

have so many wild flowers.

Conclusion: The RSPB farming experiment tells

us that not only can a lot be done for wildlife

but the farm can also remain viable.

There’s ‘Hope’ yet.

SAY NO TO HAYFEVER

The Natural Health Hub’s owner Sue Leach

specialises in the treatment of hayfever. She

outlines how homeopathic treatment can not

only help you suffer less – it could get rid of

your symptoms altogether

I have been a homeopath for 15 years and one

of the health problems I have had most success

with is hay fever.

My objective is to give you long term relief, not

just pills that manage your symptoms like the

traditional hay fever ‘cures’ such as Beconase,

Piriton and Benadril. Homeopaths tailor

hayfever treatment to you individually, bearing

in mind not only your symptoms but also your

medical history, state of health, character and

any other factors that make you more

susceptible to allergies.

High stress levels, for instance, can raise

histamine levels. A big emotional shock, illness

(such as a bout of flu) or long period of

emotional strain can trigger hay fever. It is only

by looking at the whole picture that we can

determine what is causing your hay fever, and

then give you an accurate programme of

treatment. Homeopathy works by treating you

with hay fever, rather than hay fever itself.

Homeopathy is:

1. Gentle

2. Non-toxic and non-addictive

3. Safe for all ages

4. No side-effects such as drowsiness

5. A long term solution

How it works

•by raising your body’s in-built energy so you

are more immune to the triggers for your

symptoms, such as grass, pollen and mould.

•by ‘desensitising’ you to particular allergens.

Homeopaths can give a dose of the particular

culprit(s) for your sneezing and sniffles which

raises your immunity to them.

•by getting to the heart of why you suffer from

hayfever as well as dealing with your

symptoms.

Clinical proof

Hayfever is one of homeopathy’s bestresearched

areas. A study published in the

prestigious medical journal The Lancet in 1986,

by Dr David Reilly, a professor at the University

of Glasgow, showed that homeopathically

prepared doses of 12 common flowers were

very effective in reducing hayfever symptoms

when compared with patients given a placebo.

Patients who took the placebo had six times

more symptoms than those given the

homeopathic medicine.

In a randomised, clinically controlled study

published in

the British

Medical Journal

in 2000

patients at four

GP practices

were given

doses of the

pollen to which

they were

allergic or a

placebo. Those

taking the homeopathic pollen had significantly

better airflow through their noses.

Seven studies comparing the effectiveness of

the hayfever remedy galphimia with a placebo

consistently found the homeopathic medicine

to be effective. And when researchers

compared a homeopathic combination with

cromolyn sodium antihistamine spray

(NasalCrom), the researchers found both were

equally effective.

NOTES FROM THE SOLENT CELLAR

Seasons Change……..

Spring is one of our favourite times of

year, with the lighter evenings and new

exciting locally grown produce becoming

more available. Easter is on the horizon

and we look forward to catching up with

friends and family, and this turns our

minds towards what wines we will be

drinking and sharing over the next few

months. Most of our wine choices are

influenced by what we will be cooking or

eating, below is just a snap shot of what

we will be enjoying –

Spring Salads – Gruner Veltliner is a great

alternative to Sauvignon Blanc and

becoming increasingly popular with its

easy drinking style and versatile nature in

terms of food matching. It is a wine that

pairs to Asian flavours and also asparagus

which is notoriously hard to find a wine

match for. The white and pink grapefruit

notes in the wine mix with citrus running

through and it finishes with its signature

touch of white pepper.

with its lemon and lime notes plus its

trade mark acidity make for an enjoyable

match particularly if there is any spice in

the dish. The citrus notes in the wine also

act like a squeeze of lemon or lime on the

seafood.

Rhubarb – The relatively tart flavour of

rhubarb is often off-set by a nice sweet,

nutty crumble topping. We like to pair this

to a sweet Chenin such as a Coteau du

Layon or Sauternes. The sweetness of the

wine calms the acidity of the fruit and

pairs to the crumbly topping nicely!

New wines for spring arriving in the shop

include the latest 2018 rosé vintages,

sparkling Petillant Naturels and some

fantastic Hampshire sparkling wines from

Cottonworth.

Lamb – It’s always a treat to have new

season lamb and it’s nice to pair up the

delicate, sweet, gamey flavours with a nice

red wine. We tend to choose a classic such

as Rioja. When the wine is delicately

oaked the juicy, fresh flavours along with a

touch of vanilla from the barrel ageing

make it an ideal match.

Squid – Dan from Coral Bay seafood on

Lymington market often has squid for sale

at this time of year. It is quick and easy to

cook and is delicious! Young, dry Riesling

If you need any help with your food and

wine matching this spring, pop into the

shop or send us an email for more

bespoke advice!

Access Consciousness Bars:

How it has worked for me

By Marion Joy Jenkins - Scentual Health & Beauty

Are you happy with your life?

Do you worry and obsess over

things? Do you suffer with anxiety or

depression?

This was how I was functioning two years

ago until I was introduced to Access

Consciousness Bars.

If you desire change in your life, you can

create it! My life has improved beyond

anything I could have imagined or wished

for.

business and making decisions.

- I find I’m less reactive to people and

situations – so I am much calmer!

- I’m grateful for everyone and everything

that contributes to my happiness!

- I no longer suffer with the 'monkey mind'

syndrome, meaning I have far better sleep

these days!

- Many of us have destructive behaviour

patterns and addictions – mine are gone!

Following my marriage breakdown, a series

of other life changing things happened and I

found myself at the effect of people who

were, seeking to create further problems for

me. At the time, I could see no way of

changing things and was attending

counselling every week. All this did was

bring up things which upset me – and as

relevant as they may have been in

contributing to the person I had become, I

did not wish to keep going over them!

I am so grateful that a practitioner of Access

Consciousness Bars came recommended

at this time!

My first experience of a Bars session left me

feeling like I'd received a massage and that

all my worries had been removed from my

mind and body! I decided there and then

that I was going to learn how to offer this

treatment to others and have never looked

back!

- I have so much more harmony and

allowance in relationships as I no longer put

expectations on others. For example:–

expecting family to babysit for my daughter

simply because they are family & should

wish to!

- I can honestly say that am happier than I

can ever remember being.

As well as working from my treatment room

in Dibden Purlieu, I am now also working

from Eden Beauty in Hythe every Thursday

AND am happy to offer home visits for this

treatment.

Below are some of the ways this fantastic

treatment has improved my life:

- I have far greater mental clarity. This has

helped me immensely in evolving my

Adrian

Grainger

Our cover page Artist

You may have wondered why the herrings

at the bottom of this page are vertical. Not

an error on my part, the title of the

painting explains all - ’Hauling Herring’,

depicting the fish being pulled up in a net.

Adrian is a local artist and has built up a

strong reputation. He has a wonderfully

distinct and vibrant style. You may have

seen a selection of his work in Milford:

La Perla, The Marine boutique B&B , or in

Lymington down at the quay in BluBambu.

And , if you venture down to St Ives in

Cornwall, there is a B&B that’s taken its

name from one of Adrian's pictures.

Adrian is a keen birder & enjoys fishing, so

it’s no surprise that his inspiration is

clearly from the sea and our local wildlife,

with fish and birds the main themes of his

work.

with Alan Edmondson of

Bowercot Garden Design

April/May

Gardening Tips

• Plant new containerised roses and keep well watered if the weather is dry.

• Dormant dahlia tubers can be planted out towards the end of the month.

• Beware of buying half-hardy annuals too early. We can still have frosty nights.

• Clean up marginal plants in the pond early in the month.

• Earth up early potatoes when stems are about eight inches tall and repeat about

three weeks later. Maincrop potatoes should be planted by the end of the month.

• If frost is forecast protect blossom on fruit trees and bushes with fleece.

• Alpines should be flowering well. After flowering trim plants such as aubretias and

mossy saxifrages to promote fresh, compact growth.

• After heavy rain apply a two inch mulch between shrubs and border plants to

conserve moisture.

• Remove dead leaves from plants of Cordyline australis. Pull them off starting with the

bottom ones.

• Erect a screen of fleece eighteen inches high, around rows of young carrots to protect

them from carrot root fly.

• Prepare well manured planting holes for marrows, pumpkins or courgettes. Buy in

young plants and plant out later in the month.

• Pot up and keep a few plants of African marigold in the greenhouse with tomatoes –

they will act as a deterrent to whitefly infestation.

The

Lymington

Care Group

has been driving

people to attend

medical

appointments

since 1985. An

entirely voluntary group and registered

charity it comprises a team of people

who work together to respond to

requests from anyone in the Lymington

area who finds it difficult to travel, or

has no transport facilities to allow them

to attend their medical appointments.

A nominal fee is charged by the driver,

based on the local authority standard

mileage charge.

Reflexology can help alleviate a range

of symptoms including stress,

insomnia, migraines, arthritis, IBS,

back pain and ease pregnancy.

Everyone in the Group gives as little or

as much time as they can afford.

Drivers sometimes take on more than

one or two long trips per week,

dropping people off and returning them

home, others prefer shorter local drives.

The area we cover is wide and includes

all the major hospitals and health clinics

in Southampton, Salisbury and

Bournemouth, as well as Lymington and

all the smaller locations in between.

The Group also accommodates dental,

chiropody and optician appointments as

well as visiting relatives in hospital.

An important ongoing challenge is to

maintain a heathy driver base in order

to meet demand. We are always in

need of more drivers.

Hopefully you have never been in the

situation of having lost your mobile phone,

or worse, had it stolen. Of course you know

what to do if that should happen, right? On

the off-chance you don’t have a disaster

recovery plan already, here’s some things

you should consider.

You will need to track and maybe then

wipe your phone. You have of course got

suitable services activated such as Find my

Phone for iPhone http://tinyurl.com/

y552f7vw (takes you to Apple Support) or

Android http://tinyurl.com/ookxcau (takes

you to the online device manager).

There are other services you can use, such

as the Prey Project https://

preyproject.com/ which allows you to also

add other sorts of devices from other

manufacturers including computers, so you

can keep track of all of them in one place.

HELP, WHERE’S MY PHONE?

answers to any security questions you may

have set up with your mobile service

provider.

You may also be asked for further

information, such as the name and number

of someone you have dialled recently. If

that is the case, and you don’t have

complete recall, you may want to look out

the information before calling them, so you

don’t have to ring off and get back to them.

It would be a good idea to find out from

your service provider what their procedure

is to get a new sim from them. Much better

to know what your particular provider will

want from you beforehand, than find out

that you don’t have the information when

you need it.

So go on, get started sorting it out now!

The one thing they all have in common is

that you need to install or activate them

before anything happens to your devices.

So don’t put it off, do something now, it

may be too late after the event!

You’ve got your phone sorted, worst case

you can delete all the data, what else?

Recover your mobile number. Unless you

want to tell all your contacts and the

businesses that use texts for security that

they need to record a new number, you’ll

want to keep your old number. And for

that you need your provider to cancel the

old sim and issue you a new sim with your

old number on it.

To do so, you will undoubtedly have to

jump through a number of hoops to prove

who you are. So make sure you know the

MILFORD MUSIC AND ARTS

FESTIVAL RETURNS FOR

ANOTHER YEAR

A NEW LOOK FOR A NEW

YEAR: MORE MUSIC, MORE

VENUES, MORE HEART

Milford Music and Arts Festival returns to the

gorgeous seaside town of Milford on Sea,

Hampshire, from the 8th –14th July 2019. With

this year’s theme The Summer of Love, pull out

your flares, dust off those glasses and join us for

a week of brilliant entertainment across several

village venues. With an all new bar, more food

stands, more toilets, and a brand-new stage,

this year’s event promises to be bigger and

better than ever before!

Acts topping the bill include Toffees, Misha and

His Merry Men, Rembrandt, and Pioneers.

Milford Music and Arts Festival prides itself on

encouraging local acts to get involved with all

that the festival offers. Previous years’

performances have come from the likes of

Daughters of Davis, Saints of Sin, and local indierockers

The Manatees, with a host of other

brilliant upcoming artists also taking to the

stage.

Speaking on the festival, Saints of Sin said; “We

had always heard great things about Milford

Festival and it hasn't disappointed us. The last

two times we played were amazing - It's crazy

how much of a buzz a small sea-side town like

Milford can create! The stage is brilliant - the

perfect size to accommodate our Rock n Roll

antics. The sound is bang on and the audience

are simply epic! Both of our previous

performances at Milford Festival were

absolutely packed and the audience was really

up for the party.”

But as always, the Festival is a celebration of our

Village, the local area and our Community, so

we’ve made some changes that we think you’re

going to love. We will continue to run the

Festival in local venues on Monday through to

Wednesday, but the Village Green site will run

Thursday to Sunday. However, this year, The

Green will close from 9pm on Thursday night,

with entertainment moving and continuing in

other local venues.

Milford Festival is run by a small group of

dedicated volunteers. As a not-for-profit

organisation we raise our funds through

advertising, sponsorship, donations and

different fund-raising events throughout the

year. A way to support the continuation of the

festival is by getting involved with the Friends of

The Festival scheme. Registering with the

scheme provides loads of exclusive perks,

including discounts at bars, restaurants and

activities across the village. On top of that,

there’s also discount on tickets to our Milford

Festival Presents events throughout the year -

all of which promise a good night of

entertainment and laughter! Coming up is the

Casino Night on May 18 th , with DJ Jack Dyson

providing Chicago Funk mixes throughout the

evening. With the theme being the year of 1969,

what will you come dressed as? Tickets are

available from Milford Community Centre Box

Office for £17.50.

Kerry Richardson

There are more than 6 million cohabiting

couples in the UK and the number is rising.

According to Office for National Statistics (ONS)

figures, one in eight people aged 16 and over in

England and Wales are currently living together,

a number that's risen for the past 15 years in a

row.

If you are co-habiting, you do not have the

same rights as a married couple; and contrary

to popular belief, there is no such thing as a

‘common-law marriage’.

However, despite how common an occurrence

it now is, problems can arise frequently for

these couples upon death or separation. These

can include:-

- If one cohabiting partner dies without

leaving a will, the surviving partner will not

automatically inherit anything owned

solely by their partner. Cohabiting partners

are not recognised under the Intestacy

rules which are statutory instrument that

governs the situation of someone dying

without a Will. Therefore although it may

have been the Deceased partners wish for

them to inherit, without a Will, it would

actually be inherited by the family of the

Deceased.

- Cohabiting partners cannot access their

partner's bank account if they die.

- Cohabiting partners receive none of the

tax reliefs and exemptions that spouses

and civil partners enjoy, including

pensions.

- An unmarried mother is automatically the

sole guardian of a child born outside of

marriage and has sole custody, that is not

always the case with unmarried fathers

and problems may arise if there is no Will

dealing with the issue of guardianship.

Cohabiting Couples

- If you are the unmarried partner of a

tenant, you have no rights to stay in the

accommodation if you are asked to leave.

- If you jointly own a property registered at

the Land Registry you are entitled to your

share. However, if your partner is reluctant

to sell the property, you may be obliged to

obtain a court order to sell it.

- If you separate there is no obligation to

support each other financially. An

unmarried partner who stays at home to

care for children cannot make any claims in

their own right for property, maintenance

or pension-sharing

- If when you bought the property you put

in differing amounts of deposit this may

not be reflected in the ownership

registered with the Land Registry and a

Declaration of Trust should be considered.

A Declaration of Trust, also known as a

Deed of Trust, is a legally-binding

document that records the financial

arrangements between joint owners of a

property, and/or anyone else who has a

financial interest in the property.

What can Heppenstalls do to help?

- Will preparation settling the property and

also dealing with Guardianship issues

- Wills made in contemplation of Marriage

- Prenuptial agreements

- Cohabitation agreements

- Declarations of Trust

If you concerned about these issues,

Heppenstalls can help you explore the issues in

a friendly and informal way. If you would like to

make an appointment, or to talk to our team
