LOCAL EDITORIAL

LOCAL EDITORIAL

I Don’t, do You?

I’m all for honesty. It’s the cornerstone

of relationships, an essential quality, and

actually makes life incredibly easy.

I don’t mean the blunt, unkind sort that

tells someone their bum does look big

(even if they haven’t asked). Or that

someone else’s roast potatoes are better

than yours. I just mean everyday, decent,

honest behaviour. Genuine, authentic,

candid. No hidden agendas, no secrets, no

photoshop.

Ah, photoshop! As someone who has a

habit of turning into a gargoyle the moment

a photo is taken, it’s really best that I

remain clueless about it. A few months

back I observed a young woman in a cafe

tweak a photograph of herself for almost

an hour. She was very attractive, and as

far as I could tell, the photo was great, but

she nipped in her waist, tanned her arms,

slimmed her legs, gave herself a bottom

lift, widened her eyes ... on and on and on!

Having said that, for every 100 photos

that are taken of me doing my best ogre

impression, is one that I might consider

posting on Facebook. So perhaps I’m

just as fake as the girl in the cafe? In an

attempt to correct that, I thought I’d share

something I saw on social media a while

back ... an “I Don’t” list. These are things I

could or perhaps should do, that you might

assume I do, but I don’t. Call it honest, call

it over-sharing ... whatever. Here it is:

I don’t make the bed. (Someone please

explain why it’s important?).

I don’t tidy my desk or office. (Or at least

not so you’d notice. It’s a bomb-site).

I don’t make my own pastry. (I’m a decent

cook, but my pastry is rubbish).

I don’t wash towels and sheets every

week. (I could argue it’s better for the

environment).

I don’t shave my legs in winter. (Hardly).

I don’t hoover. (Once a week is enough,

and someone does it for me).

I don’t iron. (Literally, what is the point?).

I don’t frame my kid’s music certificates.

(I’m so proud of them and I have frames.

It’s a mental block).

I don’t do gardening. (Weeding put my back

out years ago and I’m not risking it. Plus I

don’t like dirt under my nails. Don’t buy me

gardening gloves).

I don’t share Toffifee. (They’re mine).

I don’t floss. (My dentist has been nagging

for years, I just can’t be bothered).

I don’t put the bins out. (That’s what

husband’s are for).

I don’t buy organic. (I would like to, but it’s

sooo much more expensive).

I don’t organise or print my photographs.

(Tens of thousands of family photos, all

jumbled up on my computer).

I don’t exercise except for walking the dog.

(I should, and I will, but currently, I don’t).

OK, that’s enough! How was it for you? Do

we have some don’ts in common, or do

you think I’m a disgusting, negligent slob?

Ah, well. I don’t care!

Anyway, dear loyal reader (if you haven’t

gone off me) I have actually been working

very hard of late on improving my digital

presence. So please pop along to my revamped

website www.thelocalword.com,

where you can find out everything you

might want to know about the magazine,

PLUS a new Business Directory listing

all your favourite advertisers. Or look

me up on Facebook,

for snippets about the

magazine and local life.

The Wokingham Word 4 FEBRUARY 2020


LOCAL FUNDRAISING

Chosen Charities

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls ...

NEW for 2020, The Wokingham Word is

supporting two Chosen Charities.

Throughout the year, I will aim to raise

awareness (and money) for two fantastic

causes - one local, and one national.

The Ollie Young Foundation

For my first local

Chosen Charity, I

had to go with my

heart. There are so

many lovely local

organisations who do

absolutely fantastic

stuff, but the Ollie

Young Foundation is

particularly special.

On 26th February 2012, the unthinkable

happened to the Young family. Little Ollie,

just a day off his 6th birthday, died in his

mother’s arms, with his family around

him. The symptoms of his inoperable

brain tumor had only become apparent 12

weeks earlier.

Since then, in his name, the Ollie Young

Foundation has raised a staggering

£500,000 for brain tumour research.

You probably know that Ollie’s mum,

Sarah, was ITV Meridian’s Winner of the

Regional Fundraiser of the Year award, and

attended the star-studded “Pride of Britain”

awards back in October 2019.

Sarah is just delightful, the nicest person

you could ever wish to meet. Simon, his

Dad, the same. Ollie was one year older

than my youngest son, Ronnie. Alfie, his

older brother, is the same age as my

middle son, Alfred. It doesn’t take a genius

to work out why I feel still so connected to

this cause. I remember reading their story

all those years ago, and so many times

since, rarely with dry eyes.

The majority of the money raised by the

OYF goes into brain tumour research; to

improve quality of life, life expectancy, and

ultimately, to save lives.

In addition, the OYF supports Helen &

Douglas House, which provides hospice

care for babies and children. And also CLIC

Sargent which provides financial support

for affected families.

February really is Ollie’s month, with both

his birthday and the anniversary of him

passing away. The OYF call it FebBLUEary

and aim to raise awareness of their cause

by turning everything blue!

Visit www.ollieyoungfoundation.org or

follow us on Facebook.

My second Chosen Charity is national,

and it’s the wonderful:

Alzheimer’s Society

“Tell me your name again?”

I’m Carolyn.

Pause. Confused.

“Who gave you that name?”

You did, Mum.

Pause.

“I didn’t know you were my daughter all

this time”.

This is the conversation I had with my

mum when I dropped her back home after

Christmas. She was especially confused

over the Christmas period. She stayed with

my brother for a few days, and then with

us - it was all too much. On Boxing Day, she

had no recollection of the day before. She

was very upset when I told her I would be

taking her home the next day, saying that

she thought she was staying for Easter.

At other times, she might be lucid and

insightful ... but those

times are becoming

fewer and fewer.

My mum was an

intelligent and very capable

woman. A school teacher, chair and

member of many committees and good

causes, a wife and mother, a fantastic

cook. Incredibly modest, I never heard her

say she was good at anything, when in fact,

she could do virtually everything.

With projections of 1 million sufferers by

2025, nearly everyone’s life will be touched

by some sort of Dementia. Alzheimer’s is

by far the most common type, accounting

for over 60% of cases.

The Alzheimer’s Society

is at the forefront of

research, support

and advice for those

affected. And whilst

we all try to stay

positive, anyone

affected knows what

a cruel and draining disease it is.

Find out more at alzheimers.org.uk

So there you have it, my two Chosen

Charities for 2020. Look out for fund-raising

events and information in future editions,

on my website www.thelocalword.com

or please look up The Wokingham Word

on Facebook. I hope that at some point in

the year, you might be able to help support

them with me.

For anyone with a tiny amount of spare

change jangling in your pockets after

Christmas, I’ve set up a fund-raising page

- I’d be so grateful if you feel inclined

to make a donation ... please go to:

uk.virginmoneygiving.com and search

for “The Local Word” or Carolyn Robinson.

The Wow Factor

With the popularity of open plan living,

kitchens have become the hub and main

living area of the house.

Kitchen worktops have become more

important as they are the focal point of this

living area.

With new stone, quartz, timber or solid

surface worktops fitted onto existing

kitchen cabinets or into a new kitchen you

can give even the most modest kitchen a

true Wow factor.

From the moment you decide you are

going to change or replace your kitchen

you should start to consider what type of

worksurface you want. To help you make

this decision Roktops Worksurfaces have

recently opened a new samples showroom.

We believe this is the most extensive range

of samples in the South of England.

Here’s our handy guide to the most popular

types of worksurface (a comprehensive

list is available at www.roktops.co.uk go to

About go to Worktop Guide

Solid Timber

Probably the least expensive way of

adding quality and style to a kitchen. The

timber will need regular maintenance and

is prone to staining

especially in the wet

areas around a sink. It

has gained popularity

most recently with

many kitchen designers

on areas such as islands

and peninsulars, to

soften the look of the

kitchen and add a warm

texture to the design.

Granite

Granite has come and gone as the most

popular worksurface. A few years ago

it was the most popular material after

Laminate. Natural granite has its own

beauty, with many colours and styles but

it does come with its own list of problems.

It’s porous, fragile and is inconsistent

from one piece of stone to another even

when slabs are cut from the same block.

When we make your kitchen it has to

go through many processes which can

weaken the stone which cannot be picked

up during manufacture. The lighter colours

show lemon and red wine stains. Many

household chemicals have a detrimental

effect on the surface. Granite cannot be

burnt but we have seen many occasions

where hot pans have burnt the chemicals

used to seal the granite.

Quartz

Quartz is by far the most popular

worksurface on the market at this

present time. Quartz offers style, variety,

strength and practicality. There are

many manufacturers and types of quartz

surfaces which means there is a product

that will suit most budgets. It is non-porous

easy to maintain and resistant to chipping

and scratching. Most household cleaners

can be used and there is little maintenance

required.

Solid Surfaces

Most people call this Corian as it is the

name synonymous to all types of solid

surface. DuPont created this product

over 50 years ago and it is by far the most

versatile material of all surfaces available.

Solid surface allows for inconspicuous

seamless joints, moulded in sinks, moulded

in upstands, curves, thermos- forming

shapes, extra wide or long islands and it

is infinitely repairable. Most household

cleaners can be used and Corian sinks can

be cleaned easily with bleach. There are a

whole range and styles of colours available.

Alternatives to gifting house deposits

to help loved ones

Collectively, parents have given £6.3bn of

financial assistance to help their children step

on to the property ladder. A substantial figure, it

ranks the Bank of Mum and Dad (BOMAD) 11th, if

considered as a national mortgage lender.

The average contribution now stands at £24,100, an

increase of more than £6,000 compared to 2018,

research by Legal & General has revealed. However,

it seems the Bank of Mum and Dad is running out

of money and overly generous parents risk harming

their standard of living during retirement. In fact,

15% of the 1,600 participants surveyed admitted

to already having to cut back after helping a loved

one purchase a property.

Fortunately, gifting cash isn’t the only way you can

help a loved one step on to the property ladder and

other routes to support homeownership should be

considered.

At Newbury Building Society, our flexible and

tailored approach to lending gives us the ability

to help parents or grandparents boost their lovedone’s

borrowing power without having to dent their

personal financial well-being.

Joint borrower sole proprietor mortgages, for

example, is one such consideration which enables

parents to help their child by assisting with their

mortgage. Their income is used to improve overall

affordability without being named on the title

deeds. By doing so, the parent does not have to pay

the additional three per cent stamp duty surcharge

on a second property as well as capital gains tax

when the property is sold.

Parents could also remortgage or downsize their

own property to release equity to help fund a

deposit, if appropriate to do so.

In addition, there are several affordable housing

schemes available to support homebuyers fulfil

their property ambitions with more than 420,000

completions taken place using one or more of the

Government’s Help to Buy schemes, such as Help to

Buy Equity Loan and Shared Ownership.

Needless to say, the Bank of Mum and Dad isn’t set

to close its doors anytime soon, but parents can

rest assured there is more than one way to unlock a

loved one’s borrowing potential.

If you would like to discuss your mortgage opinions,

please contact us or visit us in branch. We provide a

tailored and individual service, and we are available

for Saturday appointments face-to-face, by

telephone or via video call.

February in your Garden

by Gardeneer

Goodbye January! At last there’s a sign of longer daylight

hours and spring approaching. The garden may well seem

dormant but there’s definitely growth at ground level

where tiny buds and shoots are appearing.

We associate spring with bulbs, beautiful daffodils, crocus and

hyacinth. However, there are lots of lovely summer bulbs which

can be planted in the autumn but early spring provides another

opportunity. Allium makes a fabulous display and mixes so well

with many popular plants – if planted in February it flowers in late

spring and early summer. They are easy to grow and return reliably

each year.

Lilies can be planted in February/March and make a great

scented display. They don’t like heavy, wet soil as it can make them

less reliable in later years so, if your garden has wet heavy clay

conditions, they are better planted in containers.

There are lots of summer flowering bulbs in the garden

centres from now on. Check the packets carefully as those which

are not frost hardy need to be planted later. Tomato feed applied

during the growth season and up to flowering gives summer bulbs

a really good chance of flowering the following year.

Crocosmia can also be planted in the spring: they will flower in

the late summer and make a great display. Crocosmia are easy to

grow and return reliably each year.

Witch Hazels are frequently the first of the truly dramatic large

shrubs to flower reliably in February. Hamamelis mollis “Pallida”

is a favourite. It is smothered in large, bright yellow flower petals

that are sweetly scented and hard to beat for the boldness of their

display.

If you have acidic soil or a container with ericaceous compost,

consider planting the early flowering Rhododendron “Rosa Mundi”.

It has pink flowers with a reddish eye and does not grow as large

as other Rhododendrons, growing to 1.5m: hence it is suitable for

growing in a container.

A plant which is ideal for covering fences or for covering or

pergolas is the evergreen Clematis, Clematis alpino “Freckles”

which will actually flower any time from October through to

February – it produces creamy pink flowers that have a very

distinctive deep red “freckles” . This clematis also has the added

bonus of being richly scented.

Finally, February would not be complete in any garden

without mentioning Camellias. The japonica group of camellias

are the ones that reliably flower in February and here are a

few cultivars to consider: “Alba plena” is a large double white,

“Anenomiflora” has dark crimson flowers which are borne in

abundance, or consider trying the unusual “Lavinia Maggi” which

is double white but with broad cerise pink stripes!

As ever, Gardeneer is here to help with your garden, whether

it’s regular tidy-ups, designing and landscaping, turfing, fencing,

decking and everything to make it the garden you wish for.

LOCAL REVIEWS

Film Reviews

by

Bill Robinson

1917 (2020)

Put as simply as possible, this film is a

masterpiece. Not only does the gorgeous,

flowing cinematography excel here, it

fully deserves the accolades earned at the

recent Golden Globe Awards.

Much of the hype surrounding “1917”

has centred on its cinematography. Sam

Mendes and legendary cinematographer

Roger Deakins have created a film that

appears to be shot in one take. And this

is not in the same way that “Birdman”

faked this look, the film really was shot in

real time; using exceptionally long takes,

some 10 mins long or more. A painfully

dramatic sense of realism is created by

this astonishing feat of filming; the camera

Star Wars: Episode IX, The Rise of

Skywalker (2019)

My opinion of Episode 8 of the now

enormous Star Wars saga degraded

dramatically since I gave it a generally

positive review in 2017. Whilst it has

redeeming qualities, I now consider

it one of the worst movies in the

franchise for several reasons. And my

overall disappointment with this latest,

“final” instalment makes me dislike its

predecessor even more.

Episode 9 (The Rise of Skywalker)

represents a recovery and a scramble to

resolve the many plot holes that 8 left in

its wake; who are Rey’s real parents? How

was Leia suddenly adept in the ways of the

force? How is Rey so powerful? All these

spends all of the time on its protagonists,

creating a feeling of immersion and realism

I have never experienced watching a film

before.

As the singular, sprawling set is revealed

through the continuous, fluid camera

movement, more and more immaculately

detailed sets, props and costumes are

uncovered, constantly displaying the

grandeur and scale of what Mendes

has achieved. Equally effective are the

moments that aren’t grand, in which the

fine actors highly effectively build their

characters, developing in real-time, right

in front of us. The sheer amount of time

we spend constantly connected with these

characters is unique, and it never allowed

my attention to stray from the action …

questions are resolved by this film, but

not in an entirely smooth or clean way.

Director J.J Abrams was left with a seriously

tough job on his hands with repairing

the damage left by Rian Johnson. Sure,

the wounds are now patched up and the

story has finally been closed off, but if

this film had no mess to clear up from the

previous instalment, it could have shone

far brighter.

All the ingredients are there to make it

shine: the acting is on the charming end

of the cheesy-spectrum, the care and

attention taken to the props, sets and

costumes are as good as ever and there

are some truly epic moments of pure Star

Wars fan service. However, again, the

failings of Episode 8 taint Episode 9 … it is

clear that Disney executives did not want

… Instead my focus was locked onto

“1917” right from the moment that first

long take sets off, to the moment the

camera finally settles at the emotional

and beautiful conclusion.

10/10 in cinemas now.

any surprises or controversy coming from

the final instalment, no real risks are taken

here. More than any other franchise, Star

Wars films are made almost exclusively for

Star Wars fans, and unfortunately, Episode

8 fatigued so many long-time fans of the

series, me included.

This should be

the block-busting,

record-breaking

finale that the

fans deserve,

but because of

the mistakes of

the past, this

film’s task was

impossible.

LOCAL EVENTS

Community News

Eugene Onegin

26th - 29th February, South Hill Park. Park

Opera is proud to present Eugene Onegin,

Tchaikovsky’s heartbreakingly beautiful

story of the joys and pains of young love.

Tatyana’s quiet existence in the country is

turned upside down with the arrival of the

handsome and charismatic Eugene Onegin.

Overwhelmed by her feelings, she declares

her love to him in a passionate letter, but

he arrogantly rejects her romantic dreams,

and torments her by flirting with her sister.

A tragic duel ensues, and he flees the

country, searching for peace. Years later, at

a splendid ball in St Petersburg, he meets

Tatyana again, and his world is changed

forever in a final explosive encounter.

This is an opera which is inhabited by

genuine people whose small triumphs

and tragedies we can relate to, and really

care about. Tchaikovsky’s wonderful score

abounds in the plaintive melodies, lively folk

tunes and exuberant dance music for which

he is so famous, and includes the haunting

and much-loved tenor aria “Oh where, oh

where have flown my days of springtime?”.

Set in early nineteenth century Russia, with

gorgeous period costumes, superb soloists,

chorus and orchestra, and as always sung in

English, this touching production must not

be missed.

Tickets for this popular masterpiece are

sure to sell fast, so hurry to book your seats

now, to avoid disappointment, 01344 484

123. Prices vary, see p14.

Barn Dance

Hurst Morris People are holding their

popular annual barn dance on Saturday

March 14 at Hurst Village Hall, School Road,

Hurst.

Easy to follow caller Howard Ballard will

keep everyone going in the right direction to

music by live band Chris, Patsy and Friends.

Everyone is invited to bring a plate of food

to share, for the event’s famous feast, and

their own drink. Tea, coffee and squash

will be supplied. Tickets are by emailing

contact@hump.org.uk.

The evening will help support First Days

Children’s Charity, based in Hurst. First Days

provide everyday essentials to families who

are living in poverty by distributing clothes,

toiletries, school uniforms, equipment,

furniture, toys and books.

There’s more dancing fun at HuMP’s free

Maypole and Morris day on Sunday May 3

at noon – in the village hall grounds – or in

the hall if wet. Bring your family and picnic.

Learn how to maypole dance and have a go

Chatter & Natter

January and February can be lonely months,

so if you would like some company then

head to Squire’s Garden Centres, as all of

their Café Bars have “Chatter & Natter”

tables.

Part of the Chatty Café scheme these tables

are for anyone – if you’re on your own, in

a couple, with a friend, young people, old

people and anyone in between. It’s just

about having good old-fashioned human

interaction. There are Chatter & Natter

tables every Tuesday morning at all sixteen

of Squire’s Café Bars, plus other days

throughout the week too - simply look out

for the signs on the tables.

Sarah Squire, Chairman of Squire’s Garden

Centres said, “In this age of social media it’s

so important to make an effort to talk to

others face to face. So for those who would

like a bit of real social interaction simply sit

at a Chatter & Natter table at Squire’s and

you can talk to other customers. I believe

a short conversation with another human

can really brighten your day. Everyone’s

welcome, and it’s a great way to meet

people in your local community.”

Plus get to Squire’s before 10am and you

can take advantage of their buy one get one

free offer on all hot drinks from Monday

to Saturday. Or tuck in to their “Build Your

Own Breakfast” which is served every day

until 11.30am.

ABC to Read

One-to-one mentoring support for children

struggling to read is being increased in

Wokingham thanks to a £2,000 grant from

Wokingham United Charities. The donation,

made to local charity ABC to Read, will

go towards training volunteers to assist

and support primary school children who

have been identified by their schools as

struggling most with their reading, with

many of the schools assigning their pupil

premium to provide an ABC to Read

mentor.

ABC to Read propose to place 30 new

volunteers in Berkshire by July 2020. Once

trained, each volunteer will work with 3

pupils with the potential for 90 children to

benefit from a personal mentor. The grant

from Wokingham United Charities will fund

training to ensure that 9 new children can

be supported in the Wokingham area.

99% of the local Berkshire children who

benefit from a one-to-one ABC to Read

mentor have improved in their reading

accuracy. The result comes from the

charity’s most recent annual report, which

also highlights that 99% of the youngsters

working with them have improved in

their confidence in reading and 98% have

enhanced their comprehension.

ABC to Read works very closely with schools

to ensure that the time children spend with

a volunteer mentor complements their

work in the rest of their school life and is

designed around their specific needs. The

charity’s annual statistics demonstrate

that, as a result of this personalised model,

children’s reading levels and general

confidence can be significantly increased.

ABC to Read are actively recruiting,

particularly in the Wokingham area and

there are still spaces available for any new

volunteers to take part in training and

for schools to sign up to the scheme. For

more information about training days or

joining the scheme as a school or volunteer

mentor, contact: abctoread@btconnect.com

LOCAL SUPPORT

Moving On

Valentine’s Day with all its hearts and

flowers was a tough time for administrator

Kate after her 20 year marriage broke up.

But now she can see renewed hope in

those spring blooms – thanks to a course

run by local charity Divorce Recovery

Workshop.

Kate, from a village near Wokingham and

working in Twyford, was so grateful to the

course at Earley, Reading she will help lead

the next one. It consists of two weekends:

March 20 & 21 and March 27 & 28.

“Valentine’s is a tricky time for people going

through separation or divorce – or who are

coming out the other side of it,” said Kate

who is in her 50s with grown up children.

“Shops and websites have so much about

that day. They seem to assume you are a

significant other for someone when in fact

you are struggling and on your own. It all

magnifies the difficulties you are feeling.

“Going to DRW made me feel less

isolated and helped me have a different

perspective. I discovered I could be in

charge of my own recovery and how to

move my life forward.

“Spring is a time for renewal. Things

may have been difficult but there can be

brightness coming.”

The next course is over two Friday evenings

and two Saturdays during the day, at

Brookside Hall, Earley. It’s for men and

women who are separating/separated or

divorcing/divorced.

Divorce Recovery Workshop is:

A proven self-help model run to a defined

standard

Simple and it works, speeding an

individual’s recovery

Credible, as all those running the

workshop, have experienced the

breakdown of a relationship

Offered unconditionally to anyone. The

only requirement is that you have, in

your own opinion, experienced the final

breakdown of a significant relationship

Self-resourcing using volunteers from

the workshops and a small charge for

expenses

DRW is a UK charity with its Berkshire and

Thames Valley branch based in Earley.

There’s a discount for early booking.

LOCAL ADVICE

February Health

by

Dr Daisy Mae

Snoring: It's no laughing matter

Forget "unreasonable behaviour" –

snoring is now recognised to be a top

reason for divorce – along with fishing

and becoming a vegetarian! (Daily

Express, January 2018).

A whopping 20 million Brits claim they are

sleep deprived by their partner’s snoring,

reported The Sun in 2017.

Snoring is often thought of as funny, yet

this could not be farther from the truth.

Usually, the partner suffers the most.

Sleeping on the sofa or in the spare room

every night takes its toll, with ruined

relationships and broken marriages.

So what causes snoring? Is it bad for our

health? What can be done about it?

What Causes Snoring?

Snoring is caused by something partially

blocking your airways. The airways include

your mouth and the back of your throat.

While you are asleep, and when you

breathe in deeply, this blockage causes that

noisy reverberation we all know so well as

a snore.

What causes blocked airways? The culprits

are our common vices. Smoking causes an

excess of mucus/catarrh, alcohol causes

the muscles and tissues of the palate to

over-relax and sag, and fat, in people who

are overweight or obese when pads of

fatty tissue accumulate in these areas and

literally wobble in the breeze!

Allergies also play a part. Common

allergens include house dust mite, animal

dander, pollens, yeasts and moulds.

Inhalation of allergens causes nasal and

throat tissues to swell and the production

of body secretions.

Typically, a snorer lies

flat on their back and

breathes through their

mouth. When you lie

on your back, your

tongue falls to the back

of your mouth, partially

blocking your airway. In

addition, when you take

a breath in through

your mouth, a forceful

wall of air hits the roof

of your mouth and is

funnelled through your

narrowed airway.

Lying on your side and breathing through

your nose make snoring less likely.

Sleep Apnoea

Snoring is only dangerous to health if it

causes "sleep apnoea".

In this condition, there is such a severe

blockage to airflow that your brain is

temporarily starved of oxygen. You briefly

stop breathing altogether, your brain

recognises this and after a long pause your

breathing starts again.

The strain on your heart and lungs plus the

effects of constantly feeling tired and poor

daily performance can have life-threatening

consequences.

75% of people who snore have sleep

apnoea.

If you think you could have sleep apnoea,

you must see your doctor.

What Can Be Done To Help Snoring?

Making lifestyle changes, however

difficult and unpopular, has to be the

mainstay of long-term treatment. Stopping

smoking, moderating or stopping drinking

alcohol and losing weight are strongly

recommended.

To reduce the risk of allergy, regular

vacuuming, damp dusting, and keeping

the bedroom pet-free will all help. Use

hypoallergenic bedding.

Keep the bedroom cool – around 15˚C.

Stay well hydrated – drink six to eight

glasses of water per day.

Products for Snorers and Snoring

Sufferers

The age-old solution of sewing a cotton reel

or a tennis ball in your pyjama trousers,

forcing you to lie on your side, still has

much to commend it.

Recently, having a pineapple plant in your

bedroom has been advocated – apparently

the plant produces extra oxygen overnight.

However, a simple starting point is a pair of

foam rubber earplugs for your partner.

Manufacturers have been very creative

with their anti-snoring products. For

example, nasal strips are available, which

are said to hold the airway open. And who’s

heard of a ‘Neti pot’ – a device used to flush

the airways before bedtime with salt water?

Best results are likely with the use of a

mandibular device – a special type of

gum shield that holds the tongue and jaw

forward to keep the airway open while you

sleep. Purchase these online, or have them

fitted more accurately by your dentist.

The Antisnoor device is a type of adhesive

patch you wear on your forehead that

detects snoring and then vibrates to

prompt you to turn over.

Smart Nora is an anti-snoring pillow that

listens out for snoring and then inflates to

encourage you to change the position of

your head.

The Importance of Sleep

Getting enough, good quality sleep is vital.

Lack of sleep increases your risk of strokes,

heart attacks, diabetes and cancer. Over

time it also shortens our lifespan. Adults

are recommended to sleep for seven to

nine hours per night.

Snoring it seems, is a serious business!

Visit the British Snoring and Sleep Apnoea

Association (BSSAA) website for advice and

anti-snoring products.

The Wokingham Word 22 FEBRUARY 2020


LOCAL SUPPORT

Money Matters

A church is set to run free sessions to

help people in Wokingham get on top of

their household finances.

Members of Christ Church Wokingham,

who have been trained by UK charity

Christians Against Poverty (CAP), want to

help their local community to best handle

their money in the current economic

climate. They are offering a short Money

Management course, in partnership with

Wokingham Borough Council and the

ESFA, aimed at putting the joy back into

money by helping people to chart their

household income and take control of their

expenditure.

Money coach Brian Allan, who will be

leading the CAP Money course sessions,

said: “With households feeling the squeeze

on their disposable income, especially

those on benefits or low incomes, we

should all become a bit more savvy about

our money to get through tough times.

If you know how to save and budget

effectively, it can have a hugely positive

impact on the whole family.”

Christ Church Wokingham is one of more

than 1,100 churches of different Christian

traditions across the UK who are regularly

offering the course, as they work together

to positively impact the communities

around them.

The CAP Money course has been found to

be useful for newly retired people, soon-tobe

students, mums dealing with mounting

bills, families saving for a wedding and

everyone in between.

He added: “We hope that we can help

people, quietly and confidentially, take

better control of their finances rather

than relying on guess work so they can

better plan for the future and weather the

storms.”

The next course takes place at Woosehill

Community Hall, Emmview Close,

Woosehill, Wokingham, RG41 3DA (left

before Morrisons car park) starting with

the first of three sessions at 9:45am on 7th

February, and then on 14th February and

28th February.

You can find out more about the CAP

Money Course and book your place by
