Dear Readers,

We have the Summer Fair coming up &

you’ll find more details within this

magazine. Last year’s event was amazing

and from that high base with your help, lets

make it even better!

If you get confused like me on what you

can & can not recycle - please see page 4

for guidance from New Forest Transition

Group.

Continuing with this environmental theme,

Wildlife Matters this month sets some

garden challenges. In addition, David Horne

on page 13, looks at the work that is being

actioned to try and protect terns in our

area. There is also the return of the Repair

Café at the Pavilion in September.

We have Lesley from Beach Hut ‘n Boats to

thank for our cover page - please see the

article on page 17 to discover more of her

work.

I hope you enjoy reading.

All the best,

Jacqui

The

GREEN

CORNER

Rumour has it that many of

you have been asking

about local recycling

facilities because there is

some understandable

confusion about what to

recycle. As a long standing

environmental group we will address this first,

but we do have many other exciting projects to

share with you also, including Abundance

Lymington, Jean Genie, Boomerang Bags and our

own 2020 Vision.

RECYCLING

Try and find brands and shops that have reduced packaging and re-use or up-cycle what you can.

After this point look to recycle as much as possible

NFDC Clear Sacs*

Paper and Card, Tins, cans and aerosols, All plastic bottles (no lids)

* It’s worth noticing this DOES NOT include tetrapaks, bottle tops, cellophane wrappings or

plastic pots, tubs and trays. If you include any of these items in the recycling bag it is highly likely

that the whole bag will be treated the same as a black sack. So, if in doubt, leave it out.

Below is a list of items (not collected by NFDC) and where you can recycle them:

Batteries:

Biscuit Wrappers:

Clothes and Shoes:

LYMINGTON

GETS READY FOR A

WEEKEND OF

SEAFOOD DELIGHTS

The annual Lymington Seafood Festival is

gearing up for a weekend of gastronomic

delights with over 90 local artisan producers,

live music and some of the region’s top chefs in

the demonstration kitchen. With its stunning

Solent backdrop, Bath Road Park hosts the free

two-day festival which takes place on Saturday

10 th and Sunday 11 th August and this year they

those taste buds excited about! Gin lovers can

gravitate towards the Conker Spirit Bar or

perhaps a glass or two of Exton Park’s award

winning English sparkling wine? The Portsmouth

Distillery Company will be unveiling their newly

crafted local rums and Ringwood Brewery on

hand for all ale lovers.

The demonstration kitchen will once again be

led by ‘God Father of Seafood’, Chef Patron Alex

Aitken from the Jetty in Christchurch. He’ll be

will be joined by a dazzling line-up of talented

chefs including Matthew Whitfield who has

recently taken up the reins at the Montagu

Arms, Luke Matthews from Chewton Glen and

Gordleton Mill’s head chef, Ian Gibbs. The

festival also welcomes back 2016 Masterchef

winner Jane Devonshire.

With over 150 different dishes including lobster

mac n’cheese, scallops, cockle popcorn, soft

shell crab, shrimp burgers, mackerel, gurnard

and oysters…..there’s no chance of leaving

hungry! With live music across the weekend

including soul, blues, rag-time, pop and rock

classics to get the crowds up dancing. All set to

magnificent views across the Solent estuary the

weekend is becoming one of the south coast’s

leading festival for foodies.

Gate open 11am – 8pm Saturday and 11am –

6pm Sunday. Parking is available at Woodside

Park, about 15-20mins walk to Bath Road and is

In this issue, MCV member, David Horne

writes about our local Terns.

Anyone walking the seawall between

Lymington & Keyhaven in early summer is likely

to encounter terns.

These delightful, slender silver grey and white

birds have long tails which have earned them

the nickname “sea-swallow”. They frequently

hover over water before plunging down for

fish.

Here in the Western Solent, we are fortunate

to have three species of tern breeding mainly

on small offshore shingle ridge islands known

as “cheniers”.

HELPING

OUR TERNS

However, all is not well. Our locally breeding

seabirds face increasing threats from a number

of factors:

• Rising sea levels periodically flooding their

breeding islands

• Higher water temperatures affecting food

type & abundance

• Increased disturbance from expanding

recreational activities and

• Ongoing predation, even on the islands, from

foxes & large gulls

The three species are; Sandwich tern, identified

by its relatively large size and yellow tipped

black bill. The Common tern by its medium size

and mainly red bill and the Little tern by its

diminutive size and yellow bill. Until recently a

fourth species, Roseate tern, bred locally in

small numbers.

Chris Cooke with his donated Tern Craft

Roseate Tern – tail streamers project well past

wingtips when the bird is at rest

This year I was recruited by the RSPB as the

Summer Tern Warden. The post is funded

under the Roseate Tern LIFE Recovery Project

by the European Union and aims to create the

right conditions to allow the species to return

and breed in the Solent.

Significant amounts of money and effort have

been expended over the last 3 years in an

attempt to provide more secure breeding areas

e.g.

1. Floating shingle covered rafts

2. Concrete shingle covered

platforms on Lymington

breakwater

3. Shingle recharge on small eroding

islands and

4. Maintenance of electric fencing

around Normandy Lagoon.

The aim being to give the terns a fighting

chance to successfully rear their young and in

so doing protect the species for generations to

come.

The Dog Friendly Detective

Did you know that about a quarter of the

British population own dogs? (the figure

according to a recent poll is actually 24%

or about 8.9 million dogs). If you're one of

those, then you'll know that it's fun to try

to integrate your dog into your lifestyle, as

opposed to leaving them out; in effect

then, trying to make them one of the

family.

Up until recently, this has been no easy

task. The majority of places have made no

provision at all for allowing dogs to

accompany you, and so, invariably, you

have had to leave them at home. They're

not happy about that, looking up at you

with their sad "oh no, not again" eyes as

you close the front door. And you probably

haven't felt too good about it either. Well,

the good news is, it's all starting to change

out there, and dogs are at last - not just

being tolerated in public places like pubs,

hotels and at local attractions - but actively

being encouraged. The trouble is, how do

you identify which ones these are? You

can't just turn up with your hairy hound in

tow and hope for the best, can you? Not to

worry; for readers of this magazine, help is

at hand...

Our Cover page Designer

Lesley De Gruchy

My heart sunk at the beginning of the year

when I went to visit Lesley at Beach Hut ‘n

Boats to find an empty shop. A sigh of

relief shortly followed when I saw the note

- “We have moved!’

For those of you who haven’t discovered

Lesley’s shop, you are missing a treat. The

colours alone that meet you are sure to

brighten any day. It’s a place that just

makes you smile.

I met up with Lesley to find out more

about her designs.

What is your best selling product?

I am asked this so often. It’s hard to say, as

most of my products believe it or not, have

a season. However, tea towels are always

a very popular and useful item that sells all

year round

How did you first start your business?

I originally started selling at my local

farmers and craft market in Jersey, in

2007. My work became more and more

popular and by 2009 I realised I had turned

my craft into a part time business. It was

2010 when I finally plucked up the courage

to take my business live.

Have you made any bespoke

commissions?

Yes, all the time. I am constantly asked to

design or make items for boats, camper

vans, as well as items for the home.

What are the most

the unusual things

you have made?

I guess boat

cushions, as they

are all very

different in shapes

and sizes. However,

I love to design where I can. For example

my peg bag is the shape of half a boat that

can be worn as a bag or fixed directly to

the washing line.

So have you won many awards and what

were they for?

Yes, I have been very lucky to have won 3

awards over the years. It’s tough, as there

is a lot of excellent competition out

there. The awards given were for ‘Useable

Design’ these were for the boat peg bag I

just mentioned, Cushi cube, door stops,

lavender bag, pot mitt amongst other

items. I continue to design pieces for the

shop. I love thinking outside the box.

WILDLIFE MATTERS ……... to all of us

WILDLIFE GARDEN CHALLENGE

Gardening with wildlife in mind is easy and lends

itself perfectly to busy or lazy gardeners like me!

If you want a pristine garden with no weeds, a

neatly manicured lawn and lots of back breaking

work, then this challenge is definitely not for

you! However, if you don’t mind a scruffy bit of

garden that is unbelievably good for wildlife,

then I shall show you just what you need to do.

1.The ‘Lazy Gardener’ Challenge: Our collective

and greatest challenge to help bring wildlife

back to our gardens is to do little or even less

than that! Weeding and tidying are not on my

gardening agenda, so take a rest and let your

garden ‘go wild’!

2. Lawn Challenge: Don’t mow your lawns as

often or, preferably, consider simply cutting a

meandering grass pathway through it and see

the wildflowers thrive. You won’t be surprised

at how quickly they grow but I think you will be

pleasantly surprised at the variety of colour and

this will attract pollinators (bumblebees) back to

your garden.

3. Hedgehog Tunnel Challenge:

When did you last see or hear a live hedgehog

roaming your garden? He/she could be merrily

munching away on all those slugs for which we

have all, at some time or another, been guilty of

putting down pellets so harmful to our wildlife.

So no pellets, no upturned jam jars and no steep

-sided ponds for our hedgehogs to fall into and

drown.

Speak to your neighbour and ask if they mind

you putting a hole in the bottom of your

adjoining fences to allow hedgehogs to roam

along these wildlife corridors. Indeed, ask your

neighbour to speak to their neighbour on the

other side to see if they would do the same.

How many consecutive gardens can you link

together to create your wildlife corridor?

4. Swift Box Challenge: With the decline of

many aerial summer birds, why not attach a

Swift Box under the eaves of your property? For

just £15, MCV will supply you with a suitable

wooden swift box that you simply need to

mount on your wall. The most impressive thing

about Swifts is that they do not defecate as they

leave their nest boxes, unlike House Martins

which do leave rather a mess!

My final challenge is:

5. The Nettle Challenge: I can already hear you

say, ‘oh no, not nettles in my garden!’ Well, you

will be surprised when I tell you that over 40

species of bugs that love a nettle patch. Don’t

relegate it to a shady corner. Find a bright sunny

position where they will provide early spring

food for ladybirds. In late summer the nettles

will develop large quantities of seed for House

Sparrows, Chaffinch and, if you’re lucky, the

beautifully colourful Bullfinch. Small

Tortoiseshell and Peacock butterflies and Small

Magpie and Mother of Pearl moths are also

likely to be attracted.

If you can’t bring yourself to take up all five

challenges, try one or two and know that you

have done your bit for wildlife.

NOTES FROM THE SOLENT CELLAR

Discovering wines from the Roussillon region

Tucked away in the south/west corner of

France, the Languedoc-Roussillon is one of

the largest wine regions in the World. This

large production does create some

challenges for the area because consumers

find the diversity and range of styles being

produced a bit confusing. When you think

about Burgundy, you immediately think

about Pinot Noir for reds, and Chardonnay

for whites. However, in the Languedoc-

Roussillon dozens of different varieties can

be used and are often blended together,

none of which clearly define the region.

the Spanish

border around

the village of

Trouillas. Their

wines are

regarded by

Jancis Robinson

to be some of

the best in the

region and we

highly

recommend you

trying them too!

The best way to understand this region is to

split it down into appellations or smaller

areas. One of our favourites is the

Roussillon. This region offers richly

flavoured wines from small producers

making artisan wines of excellent quality

that are also great value.

Domaine Treloar is one of the smaller,

highly regarded producers of this region.

Englishman Jonathan Hesford and his Kiwi

wife Rachel purchased 10 hectares of old

vines 13 years ago after relocating to the

region from New Zealand where Jonathan

was winemaker at Neudorf. Prior to this the

couple lived in New York when 9/11

happened and this is what spurred them on

to make their dream of owning their own

vineyard a reality. The vines are located an

hour from the Pyrenees and an hour from

There's the

fresh, dry and aromatic Jonathan & Rachel

‘One Block’ Muscat is great with salads and

fresh seafood. 'Terre Promise' is a blend of

Macabeu, Grenache Gris and Carignan

Blanc, it has a lovely texture on the palate

and would partner roast chicken really well!

The popular ‘Three Peaks’ is made from

Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre and shows off

the unique terroir of the region, and the

‘One Block’ Grenache is a great example of

this single grape variety. Both reds pair

perfectly to BBQ meats at this time of year.

The wines from Domaine Treloar show off

the exciting potential of the wines from the

Roussillon region which are far removed

from the bulk wines produced by the

cooperatives that the region is known for.

For us, these are the wines you should

expect to find in an independent wine

shop, made in small amounts, offering a

connection to the vineyards where the

grapes are grown and that have a unique

story about the people who carefully

produce the wines.

Hordle Gardening Club – High Summer?

Yes, it’s officially ‘high summer’! If you were new

to gardening last year you had a heatwave and

watering to deal with. This year, after a mild

winter, we had a short heatwave in mid-April

(remember that?) and since then we’ve been

waiting for summer. It seems that shrubs and

perennials are doing alright, but annuals and

some vegetables have been struggling with the

north winds and cold days and nights we had in

May and the beginning of June. Nature being

what it is, it usually sorts itself out in the end.

Did you know that pregnant ponies in the forest

will delay the birth of their foals if the weather is

too cold. This is why you may suddenly notice

lots of foals appearing at the same time.

Similarly honey bees don’t come out of their

hives until the temperature is above 13°C (55°F).

Bumble bees and others come out of their nests

at lower temperatures.

Show competition. We will be pitting our flowers

and vegetables against each other – we even

have classes for cakes and preserves, which are

not just for the ladies! It’s all good fun.

Hordle Gardening Club will be taking a couple of

stalls at the Hordle Summer Fair on Saturday

31 st August. One of the stalls will be selling

plants from our members’ gardens, and the

second stall is for children to create a ‘garden in

a tray’ – an opportunity for them to be creative.

They can then take it home or leave it to be

judged (and take it home later).

Please see below for details of our meetings and

check the diary page in this magazine for

upcoming dates and subjects.

We hope to see you soon!

In my last article I said I was planning on growing

vegetables this year. I don’t have a greenhouse,

so have had seeds on windowsills or in my west

facing conservatory, they have mostly

germinated well, but when the temperatures

dipped the seedlings did struggle a bit. I also

bought some seedlings from our own Club plant

sale table which we have at every meeting.

Everything now seems to be growing well –

herbs, rainbow chard, beetroot, bulb fennel,

tomatoes and courgettes are all producing – my

dwarf French beans - apparently rather sensitive

little things, are only just recovering from those

cold temperatures I mentioned earlier. I’m

learning!

Recent Club meetings have been inspiring.

Derek Dexter’s talk on Fuchsia’s gave us lots of

ideas about growing these lovely plants, and

Sandie Worth on propagating plants using

cuttings, certainly encouraged us to have a go. In

July some of the members have opened their

gardens to other members – purely because we

gardeners like to share. It’s lovely to see the

variety of different types and sizes of gardens

and of course the plants within them.

Our next meeting is our members’ only Closed

Hordle

THE COUNTRY PARKS

OF

HAMPSHIRE:

How many have you visited?

Something you may not know about

Hampshire County Council is that it

owns a number of beautiful country

parks and visitor farms and exciting

children’s outdoor activity centres,

open to the public. The council has

worked hard over the past few years to

develop and improve these assets,

transforming how they are run, and, in

so doing, has succeeded in making

them self-funding.

Lepe Country Park in Exbury is the

nearest park for those living south of

the New Forest. The ‘Lepe Loop’

provides a picturesque walking route

for visitors who can then enjoy lunch

or a coffee in the stylishly designed

new cafe building. The Lookout café

was recently rebuilt on ‘stilts’ to

protect it from future rising sea levels

or storm events. Over the summer

months there are various planned live

theatre and music events and

children’s holiday activities.

A little further at Bursledon is Manor

Farm, a working visitor farm with

animal fields, hatchery, milking stall,

Victorian school room, deer hide,

wildlife meadow, pond, play area and

café, amongst many other interesting

traditional rural experiences for

children and families – or indeed for

anyone! As a bonus, the picturesque

River Hamble Country Park is right next

door, for you to enjoy on the same day

if you wish. You can also book a BBQ

party on site!

I have made it a goal to visit all

Hampshire County Council’s country

parks this year. If you are looking for

things to do or places to visit during

the summer months, why not plan to

visit some of them yourself and get to

know the spectacular wider county of

Hampshire a little better. Full details on

the link below or phone 0300 555 1375
