In this regular series, Ray Mayes follows the

Lymington Blue Plaques Trail. In each issue of

The Lymington Directory, Ray enhances the

detail provided in the Trail leaflet. This month

he tells the story of The Lymington Centre.

6. Lymington


Centre (New Street)

On the corner of Cannon Street, the Lymington

Community Centre is, according to the latest

edition of Pevsner’s The Buildings of England:

Hampshire South, “a well-converted former

malting, much tidied up but in the best way”.

With a distinctive cowl on its roof, the Centre

building originally formed part of a Malt House

for brewing. At the time of the wars with

Revolutionary France, many French refugees

and Royalists (émigrés) settled in and around

Lymington. A band of 400 émigré soldiers (the

French Artillery), commanded by Colonel

Rothalier, occupied the Malt House, adjacent

stables and a long row of buildings on the

opposite side of the road (now long

destroyed). In June 1795, émigré soldiers

took part in an ill-fated attempt to regain

a foothold in France at Quiberon Bay,

Brittany. The Quiberon Bay expedition,

however, was unsuccessful. Poor planning

and leadership, together with treachery

and divided loyalties among the ranks, led

to the attempted invasion proving to be a

complete disaster.

After a period of hosting French Loyalist

refugees, the conclusion of hostilities with

Napoleon after 1815 saw Lymington settle

back into some quiet normality.

The Malt House saw a variety of uses, but over

the years the premises became increasingly

dilapidated. In the 20th century, Edward King

(1893-1974) recounted in his A Walk though

Lymington: “for amusement in the town we had

a roller skating club at the Malt Hall” on the

concrete floors. Health & Safety now sensibly

precludes this activity!

After the Second World War, Lymington

townsfolk decided to form a Community

Association. The founder of the Lymington

Community Association was Robert Hole, who

was the inspiration for the project leading to

the acquisition of The Old Malt House and ¾

acre site in New Street (for £1,500) and Mr.

Hole personally buying four ex-RAF huts. From

1946 onwards, the Malt Hall became much

altered and the Centre has become a thriving

hub of cultural activity, entertainment and adult

education in Lymington.

The Community Centre was up and running in

1948. From its beginnings, the Centre has

provided a cinema. Clubs and societies,

educational classes and a plethora of social and

cultural activities take place. An article in Punch

magazine in 1952 on the Community Centre,

quipped “except at present you cannot learn

Chinese or Free ballooning, there seems no limit

to the scope of the Association’s activities”.

In June 2007, the Community Association

celebrated its 60th anniversary with the

opening of a new flexible hall arrangement

known as the Fuller McLellan Hall. The building

in Cannon Street, with its distinctive curved

roofline, was built on the adjacent former

Lymington library site. Funding for the Halls

was possible because of two generous legacies

from Miss Daphne Fuller and Mrs Joyce


The community centre’s 18th century origins

live on in the name of Lymington’s only local

cinema: The Malt Cinema.

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.

or from the Rotary Club.

This month we are focusing

on a couple of projects that

our Lymington group have

been involved with.

Abundance Lymington has

been running for the last 5

years, where as the Lymington

Repair Café started just this

year. Both these projects are run by an active group of

local volunteers who are working towards a

sustainable SO41 area.

Lymington Repair Café

A repair café is a simple idea. It is a free meeting place that’s all about repairing things. Visitors

are able to bring their broken items from home and meet up with specialist volunteers from

the community who can help them.

In March this year, Transition Lymington hosted the first Lymington Repair Café at the

Community Centre. They were generously supported by a grant from West Solent Solar Co-op

which paid for the setup costs. They were very lucky to have an incredible team of fixers – 3

sewers, 2 jewellers, 2 IT / phone / computer experts, 2 bike mechanics and 3 who could fix

anything electrical. They shared their skills whilst fixing and encouraged people to help too. The

fixers were all volunteers, it couldn’t have happened without them.

The morning was a huge success with a constant stream of people bringing in items to be

repaired. All sorts of things – from bags, necklaces and bikes to phone screens, hoovers, lamps

and record players! About 200 people came and well over 50 items were repaired. There was

no charge but people were able to make donations and buy tea and cake. The donations have

allowed another Repair Café to take place this Autumn.

The next Lymington Repair Café will be on Saturday 9 th November from 9.30am -12.30pm at

Lymington Community Centre. Please come along.

An Abundance of Apples

Abundance Lymington was conceived by Transition Lymington as a way to share the abundance

of apples and other fruits within the community. The concept involves volunteers picking

apples from private gardens and then sharing the harvest between the owners, volunteers, pre

-schools and other local groups. Abundance Lymington has recently expanded its horizons by

sharing how we can best use the apples.

Sharing Ideas

• Ask a friend to help your pick your apples, and give them a share of the harvest.

• Store them in trays. Keep them dry, separate with newspaper and check them regularly for


• Collect old plastic bottles - juice the apples and freeze the juice. Its brown, but delicious.

• Give bags of apples to your friends and swap recipes with them. Please see the next page for

some ideas.

Please mention The Lymington Directory when responding to advertisements



• Make apple puree and freeze it in ice cube trays. You can use 2-3 cubes on your cereal in

the morning.

• Collect your jam jars and make apple chutney. Search for recipes and make some early

Christmas presents.

• Dry apple rings in a low heat oven or borrow/share a friend’s food dehydrator.

• Make some stunning ‘apple roses’ with pastry, jam and cinnamon. Hold or cold? With

cream or custard? Dorset apple cake, apple fritters, or try this recipe below. You can use

cooking apples or If you prefer replace the cooked apples with two peeled, cored and

diced eating apples – no need to cook them, just toss them in the lemon juice and use only

25g granulated sugar, then spoon onto the cake mixture.



350g cooking apples,

peeled, cored and


1 tbsp lemon juice

50g granulated sugar

225g butter, softened

225g caster sugar

250g self-raising flour

1 tsp baking powder

2 tsp ground cinnamon

4 medium eggs

Icing sugar, to dust

• Place the cooking apples, lemon juice and granulated sugar in a heavy-based pan. Heat gently

until the sugar has dissolved then simmer for 3-4 minutes until the apple has just softened.

• Leave to cool.

• Preheat the oven to 180C/160C fan/gas mark 4. Grease a 23cm square shallow cake tin and line

the base with baking paper.

• Place the butter, caster sugar, flour, baking powder, cinnamon and eggs in a large bowl and,

using a handheld electric mixer, beat together for 2-3 minutes

until pale and creamy.

• Spread half the cake mixture in the base of the lined

cake tin.

• Drain off any excess liquid from the cooked apples then

spoon them over the cake mixture in an even layer.

• Gently spread the rest of the cake mixture over the

apple filling.

• Bake for 40-50 minutes or until the cake has shrunk from

the sides of the tin and springs back when pressed in the

centre with your fingertips. Leave to cool in the tin for

Happy Autumn Feasts

15 minutes.

• Serve warm or cold, cut into slices and dusted

Wilbur and his friends are like the Red Arrows

of the cliff top birds.

Wilbur is a chough - a large black bird like a

crow except his beak and legs are red. This species

of bird love to fly in stormy weather when

the wind is blowing at 50mph or more. At this

wind force, choughs love to swoop up and then

dive down to show off to their friends.

One morning on Milford Cliff top near the

White House, I saw Wilbur trying to out shine

his six friends who were flying in formation with

him. The sky was dark and angry and the Needles

light house was just visible. Importantly it

was blowing and gusting at about 55mph -

perfect conditions for the choughs and their

aerial manoeuvres.

From my view point on the nearby cliff top path

I saw the following:

Several choughs were holding themselves almost

stationary about 8ft up from the cliff face

beneath them. There were 3 birds in a single

row each about 2ft apart at the wing tips. with 2

more birds above and 2 below ; making it 7

birds in all. The wind was coming off the cliff

face and shooting vertically upwards quite violently.

This up draught allowed the birds to

hover directly over the edge of the cliff top just

using the tips of their outstretched wings for


I watched for a couple of minutes as they struggled

to stay stationary in the space like a squadron

- they were doing quite well.

Then suddenly Wilbur broke formation and

dived down to the ground and landed close to a


By Dave Summers, Local Resident

piece of wood. This piece of wood was clean

and planed on all sides. It was 3/4” wide, 1/4

thick and 7” long. Wilbur grabbed this flat piece

of wood in his claws, flew up and re-joined the

grouping in his original position. Wilbur then

used his genius to manipulate this piece of

wood as an aerofoil section to allow him to

stabilise his flight in the same way an aircraft


Within 20-30 seconds he was showing improved

stability over his friends as they all tried valiantly

to hold together their formation in the very

gusty air. One minute later they all broke free,

Wilbur then dropped his new found stabiliser

and they all went back to soaring and diving

once more.

I inspected the dropped piece of wood. It was

part of the strips of wood used on the adjacent

beach huts - the roofs are covered with a tar

based felting material for waterproofing and

these strips are added to stop the winds from

tearing it. This piece was a small off cut from a

longer length.

How did Wilbur know that this aerofoil would

stabilise his flight? Did his friends give up flying

with him because they didn't have one?

It is interesting that in 1903 when the age of

flight began, the two remarkable brothers Orville

and Wilbur spent many hours studying the

flight of birds before they did any design work.

They studied the wing shapes, their weight,

how they used their bodies/wings to soar, glide,

land and take off. Only then did they build their

first flying machine, a glider. Then later with the

addition of an engine, the first machine they

could sit in and fly like a bird.

The health of your gut is the key to your overall

health. Not only is your gut (stomach and

intestines) in charge of digestion, absorption of

nutrients and excretion of waste, it is also a key

player in your immunity – and even your

happiness. Did you know that 70% of your

immune cells lie in the wall of your intestines?

Or that your gut flora (a vast colony of 100

trillion micro-organisms known as the

microbiome) may contribute to the health of

your heart and brain, prevent some cancer and

autoimmune diseases, and perhaps play a role

in the development and progression of obesity.

A healthy gut plays a key role in:

1. Detoxification of toxins

Getting your bowels to function optimally is

essential. Most chronic diseases start with an

imbalance in the gut. Your primary route of

elimination is your colon, so if you are not

eliminating these toxins efficiently then these

can be reabsorbed into the bloodstream,

affecting your health. Too much toxicity in your

blood can not only make you feel unwell but

make your blood more acidic which can lead to


2. Defence against viral, bacterial and fungal


Your microbiome is your defence team against

bacterial and fungal infections. Having poor gut

flora will lead to a poor immune system. This

gut microbiome also supports the development

of white blood cells which play an important

role in fighting off infections.

3. Absorption of nutrients

We get all our fuel and all our nutrients from

the food we eat, with these nutrients

strengthening our health and supporting all

cellular functions. It’s not just about what

passes through your gut, however – it’s which

nutrients are actually absorbed from that food

that actually keeps your body fine-tuned. Good

gut bacteria and producing enough digestive

enzymes are crucial in how you metabolise your


4. Our happiness

Research shows that being happy strengthens

the immune system. The neurotransmitters

serotonin and dopamine – our ‘happy

hormones’, so called because they are key to

regulating our moods – are made in the gut.

Which means that literally an unhappy gut = an

unhappy mind.

Improve your gut health now!

Sure signs your gut is out of sync are:

constipation, loose, slimy or discoloured stools,

bloating, flatulence, lack of energy or nausea, or

if you had antibiotics or a sickness or diarrhoea

bug in the past year.

Our experts at The Hub can help you amend any

of these symptoms. It’s all about ensuring your

gut has a large population of different types of

healthy bacteria.

Book an appointment with our naturopathic

nutrition Rhi Hepple to see how you could

achieve this, perhaps with a course of probiotics

or by making small improvements in the way

you eat. Her hair analysis test can help you get

to the root cause of why you are ill or suffering

gut imbalance rather than merely managing

your symptoms.

The Dog Friendly Walk Diet Detective Part 2

For all of you who enjoyed our previous

‘Dog Walk Diet’ article and walk route read


The New forest is beautiful at this time of

year, the purple heather contrasting

against the emerald green of the trees to

create a beautiful walking landscape. Our

Longslade View route is one that we’ve

devised specially for our dog walking Pet

Rangers, who, with the rest of our team,

managed to complete over eight thousand

dog walks for local customers in 2018!

Anyway, to the route.

Longslade View car park is in Sway. If

coming through Sway village and driving

up Brighton Road, turn right at the top of

Brighton Road. The car park is then on

your left hand side. If coming from the

B3055 Sway direction, turn left at the brow

of the hill and staggered crossroads. The

car park is then the first one on your right

hand side.

Turn into the car park and drive along the

track to the car park and park up.

From the car park gate, follow the track

down the hill and when you come to the

old railway bridge, follow the track that

goes to the right and up onto the old

railway line/gravel track. The Castleman’s

Corkscrew was the name given to one of

Hampshire’s oldest railway lines which ran

from Brockenhurst to Ringwood and on to

Wimbourne. Today long stretches of the

track have been retained for cycle and

walking routes.

Follow the track all the way to the end

where you come to a small white cottage.

Just after the cottage, turn left and follow

the track here.

Around 25-30 minutes into the walk, you

will come to a small river/pond area where

the dogs can have a cool off. Keep

following the track along. You will then

come to a wooded area. Keep following

the track up the hill.

At the top of the hill the track splits. Go left

here and follow the track down the hill.

You will then come to a bigger river/pond

where you can again stop and the dogs can

have a cool off in the water. Alternatively

you can turn right and explore the

woodland for a longer walk.

Follow the track under the railway bridge

and all the way back up the hill to the car


If all this frankly seems too much like hard

work for you, but you’d nevertheless like

to give your dog a unique treat of some

lovely, forest walks like this, then call us up

on the old dog and bone on 01425 262

100, or click and

we’ll come and pick them up.

WILDLIFE MATTERS ……... to all of us

Is it all DOOM AND GLOOM? ..………. Not a

bit of it”

And we‘re not talking about Brexit or a General


A lot of negative things have been said about

wildlife depletions and extinctions, but it is

certainly not the case with all wildlife. In this

issue of Wildlife Matters we look at some

positive signs.

• In 2018, 89 Bitterns were ‘booming’ in RSPB

Nature Reserves across the country. In 1997,

there were just 11 booming Bitterns. In

winter 2018/19 Bitterns were regularly

recorded at The Pans in Keyhaven.

Red Kite over Lymington

• 2018 and 2019 were good years for several

butterfly species. Two-thirds of British

butterflies were seen in higher numbers in

2018 than in 2017. The Large Blue enjoyed

its best year in 2018 since its reintroduction,

up 58% on 2017 records.

• There are about 12.8 million water birds

across the UK. This is marginally up on 2011

estimates. The increase has been in the

numbers of Geese, which was offset by lower

wader numbers.

Large Blue

• Brown Argus was recorded on Studland

Meadow for the very first time.

Brent Geese shortly to return to our coastline

• Numbers of Red Kites and Little Egrets saw

significant increases between 1995 and

In the Garden

with Alan Edmondson of

Bowercot Garden Design


Gardening Tips

• Divide and replant old clumps of perennials such as achillea and pyrethrum.

October is a good month for planting box, holly or yew hedging.

• Blackberry, raspberry and Loganberry canes which have fruited should be cut out

and new canes tied to the supporting framework.

• Misplaced shrubs and trees within the garden can be lifted and transplanted. Keep

root disturbance to a minimum.

• If your runner beans have finished cropping, cut back the top growth and compost

it. Leave the root system in the soil to rot down and provide nitrogen.

• Unripened tomatoes can be ripened by placing in a large paper bag with an

overripe (freckled) banana.

• Put grease bands around apple and cherry trees to catch winter moths.

• On established lawns, apply autumn fertiliser if not already done.

• If you are over wintering hardy annuals in the cold greenhouse, water them


• If digging, leave the soil in lumps for the frost to break down.

• If you are planning to plant fruit trees, the sooner the better, although the planting

season extends to March.

• It is a good time to plant bare rooted roses. Any broken stems or roots should be

cut away cleanly

• Woolly leafed alpines may need some protection from excessive wet weather.

• Clean and oil any tools that are not needed until next year.

When asked how he approaches his work, Pete

says "I tend to work out on site to capture the

immediacy of the moment with pastels and

watercolour, and then using those sketches,

either finish them back in the studio or use

them as reference for larger canvases in oil or

Acrylic. Although working in the moment I try to

capture more than a snapshot. I want to FEEL

the landscape."

Pete Gilbert

Our Cover Page Artist

Pete Gilbert is a prolific contemporary

landscape artist whose studio can be found in

Woodgreen, a small hamlet in the depths of the

New Forest. His muse is the landscape on his

doorstep, and his painting reflects this with a

variety of mark making and vibrancy which have

become his trademark. He has the ability to

portray a terrific sense of place in his paintings,

transporting the viewer to the exact spot within

the region, yet with a loose painting style that

leaves one's imagination to explore the depths

of the painting.

Pete has been painting and drawing since

leaving school in the 60s. His working career has

been rich and varied, from design and

advertising agencies through to running

restaurants and night clubs; but he always

found time to keep painting, exploring

techniques and developing his own style,

changing and adapting to his lifestyle; from the

very precise skills needed as an airbrush artist

and illustrator, to the strong brush stokes and

bold colours of his New Forest landscapes. He

feels lucky that he is now a successfully selling

artist, his work is in demand, and so painting

can now be his life rather than a hobby.

To see Pete's work, his exhibitions run

throughout the year, with an exhibition

currently at Silk Mill, Whitchurch, which will run

until 24th November and is a collaborative show

where he and photographer Hugh Lohan

continue their exploration of the River Test.

Hugh's Black and White photography balances

perfectly with the distinctive vitality and

richness that is captured in Pete’s landscapes

paintings. It's a vast body of work, and one not

to miss.

Other galleries where Pete has exhibited


Iona in Woodstock, Out of the Blue in Marizion

Cornwall, Beaulieu Fine Arts in Beaulieu, Salt

Marsh in Lymington and The Hatch Gallery in


Pete has been a big part of Hampshire Open

Studios since is began back in 2000, and each

year he always produces 30 to 40 new works

specifically for the event. This year he saw sales

of over 24 paintings, which is the mark of a very

successful show!

Pete's work has been shown in London,

Salisbury and Cornwall, along with his regular

show in and around the New Forest. This year

he won the People's Choice Award at the St

Barbe Open in Lymington.

Pete enjoys working with photographer and

good friend Hugh Lohan, and says "he is getting

older now, 85 but still a keen photographer, and

we are just about to have another joint

exhibition at the Silk Mill in Whitchurch. He is ex

army, and I am still hippy, we are so

diametrically opposed you would never think it

would work but we get on just fine."

Being Neighbourly

Hospice Neighbours is a free

volunteer led service available to

Oakhaven Hospice patients and their

families, offering companionship and a

helping hand with everyday tasks that

can be overwhelming when living with

a life limiting illness.

These highly trained volunteers visit

the individual to provide assistance

with daily chores such as gardening,

cleaning, shopping or dog walking;

additionally the prospect of a sharing

time with a ‘neighbour’ either over a

coffee or whilst a ‘neighbour’ is

carrying out a task can offer

companionship and solace.

If you have a couple of hours a

week to spare and would like to

know more about the scheme and

becoming an Oakhaven Neighbour,

please contact Sara on 01590

677198 ext. 212 or email :

Full training is given with ongoing support.

The WI is here to inspire you

We are about inspiring women through experiences, knowledge and skills.

These are passed down through generations and updated every day.

The WI is everything you want it to be

Whatever your reason for joining, we offer all kinds of opportunities to all

The WI is what you make of it

WIs come in all shapes and sizes and our members can be involved in the way that suits them.

The Women's Institute (WI) was formed in 1915 to revitalise rural communities and encourage

women to become more involved in producing food during the First World War.

Since then our aims have broadened and we are now the largest voluntary women's

organisation in the UK. We celebrated our centenary in 2015 and currently have almost 220,000

members in approximately 6,300 WIs. We play a unique role in providing women with

educational opportunities and the chance to build new skills, to take part in a wide variety of

activities and to campaign on issues that matter to them and their communities.

The WI is the largest women’s voluntary organisation in the UK and as such, we are regularly

asked for our opinions, thoughts and ideas on a huge range of different topics. The size of the

organisation and the respect given to members as a result of their engagement in local, regional

and national issues, as well as their skills and expertise in a huge range of topics.

Lymington WI meetings are held at the Lymington Centre on the second Wednesday morning of

the month at 9.30 am. Visitors are very welcome.

A sparkling jewel in the centre of the

Mediterranean, Malta sits between Sicily and

the North African coast. Steeped in a rich

history, this beautiful archipelago, has been

subject to the rule of Romans, Moors, Knights

of Saint John, French and British.

The largest, and probably best known of the

islands is Malta. The island’s capital, Valletta, is

one of Malta’s three UNESCO World Heritage


As the commercial centre of the island, the city

is busy during the day. Quaint shops and cafes

sit side by side with internationally known

retailers offering a unique shopping experience

with something for everyone.

TRAVEL guide

Soak up the Magic of Malta

Discovering Seville :

A Wonderful City

Valletta offers a variety of accommodation from

charming boutique hotels to self-catering

options and there’s something for all budgets.

Beyond Valletta, Malta has so much more to

offer. There are beaches to suit every taste

from sporty travellers who want to windsurf

through to sun-seekers simply wanting to relax.

The most popular beaches are in the North of

Malta and if you’re looking for something a

little smaller, head for the tip overlooking the

island of Gozo.

A boat trip to Comino’s world-famous Blue

Lagoon is not to be missed. You’ll have to look

far and wide to find more beautifully clear,

azure waters.

The rocky coastline and clear blue waters of

Malta makes for some of the best diving in the

Mediterranean with a wealth of caves, reefs

and wrecks to explore. The combination of

clear waters and calm conditions make it a

great place for first time divers and there’s no

shortage of reputable Dive Schools to choose


As the sun sets, you feel like you’re walking

back in time as you explore the narrow streets,

churches and palaces. Find a small café tucked

away and enjoy local delicacies such as pastizzi

and ftira.

Whilst in the city, don’t miss the stunning St

John’s Cathedral and Museum which hosts

some of the world’s most famous works of fine


English is widely spoken, car drive on the left

and the standard British three pin plug system

is used.

Flights from Bournemouth Airport to Malta are

just three hours making it the perfect getaway.

bespoke itinerary, call Milford Travel on 01590

Lots of people found their computers

forcibly upgrade to Windows 10, even

though they were quite happy with their

Windows 7 computer. Even if you valiantly

resisted Microsoft’s attempts, come 14

January 2020, you’ll have to do something

when Microsoft ceases support for

Windows 7.

knowledge from retailers as you might


The problem is, you may find someone who

can decipher all the nonsense but what

does it mean in the real world? Have much

main memory is sufficient for the sort of

things you are going to want to do? What is

a USB C port and how many do you need?

So if you are still running Windows 7, or

your upgraded PC doesn’t cut the mustard,

what do you do?

Well you may notice that in between

January next year and now is…..Christmas!

If you don’t have family who might take a

hint, maybe it’s time to treat yourself!

You have a number of options;

1. Buy a new Windows 10 computer. It will

work fairly similarly to your current

computer and should be able to run the

same or similar programs you use now. It

does sometimes act a bit strangely though.

I am often contacted by people who have

bought a cheap device on the

understanding that they ‘don’t do much’.

Trouble is, some of the cheaper computers

are under-specified for everything!

A bit of advice from someone who isn’t

trying to sell you a particular computer can

go a long way. So, if you don’t have a

suitable child to hand, ask your friendly

computer techie. It’ll save you money and

grief in the long run!

2. Change to an Apple computer. I have

helped a number of my clients change and

it’s not as hard as you might think, given a

bit of help. They come with all the standard

sorts of programs but learning where

everything is can take a bit of effort.

3. Do you need a computer at all? I have

clients who have ditched their computers

and now use a tablet exclusively. The iPad

is by far the most common but there are

other tablets available.

All sounds pretty simple, doesn’t it? Until of

course you go into Currys or John Lewis or

look online, that is. There’s an awful lot of

numbers and acronyms involved in buying

tech these days and not as much
