unprecedented times aff ecting

all of us, I, as thousands of

others, have now been laid off

Cooking was something that

I used to love and cookbooks

were my guilty pleasure, (Ali

can vouch for my obsession

and match it!) but working

full time meant cooking had

become a chore. Now with

all my free time, dare I say it,

I’m actually starting to enjoy it

again. Having to be creative

with ingredients when there is

little on the shelves and minimal

trips to the shops, using what’s

in the cupboard has never been

more important.

Marinating meat infuses so

much more fl avour into the dish

and the longer you can leave

it the better it tastes. Here are

three very simple recipes to

turn the humble chicken thigh

or fi llet into something tasty. If

you’re missing your favourite

restaurant or takeaway right

now (I know I am!) you can still

enjoy fabulous fl avours at home

at very little cost and minimum

eff ort.

sing along with ellie is a big hit in care homes

by NG Magazines

Ellie Fessey has been busy during lockdown, live

streaming sing along sessions into care homes

and it’s proved to be a massive hit!

Residents and staff have really enjoyed the sessions

and the feedback has been really good. Even with

a few teething problems with the technical side

of things, Ellie has now reached out to all of the

care homes in Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire and

Chesterfield. One problem that kept cropping up

was the lack of equipment required to do the live

streaming (laptop with built in webcam and good

Wifi internet access). So Ellie’s husband suggested

making a DVD, using the webcam she bought for

the live streaming, to record the sing along session

within a little home studio.

Almost all care homes have a DVD player and now

all they need to do is put the DVD in and press play!

Ellie says; “this is a perfect solution for the residents

and the staff who are very busy during these difficult

times and might not be able to devote as much time

to recreational activities as they would normally.”

Fast forward six weeks and Ellie, with help from her

husband and friends, has now produced a DVD and

songbook. These are now for sale on her very own

website:, there is

a sample video of the DVD there for you to view for

free. Ellie has invested a lot of her savings into this

project and is keen to publicise it to all our readers.

You can also check out her facebook page “Sing

Along With Ellie “.

Ellie’s determination to reach out to residents in care

homes is fuelled by a painful personal experience

as she lost her mum recently to cancer. However,

because she was in a nursing home where there had

been confirmed Covid-19 cases, Ellie and her family

were unable to visit her during the last few weeks of

her life.

All of Ellie’s singing work has come directly from

her mum. Ellie explains; “we had countless sing

along sessions together for years, whether in

organised groups, in my car or just sitting at her

bedside, we always sang together. She always has

been and always will be my inspiration. Her journey

through dementia has been really tough, I can’t

begin to explain the impact this has on the person

and their loved ones, utterly devastating physically

and emotionally. So I am determined to make my

sing along sessions happen one way or another, as

I have witnessed time and time again, how music

breaks though so many barriers for people living with

dementia or indeed people without it.”

alzheimer’s society reaches

out to thousands

by Alzheimer’s Society

People affected by dementia in the East Midlands

are experiencing crippling loneliness and are

struggling to cope during lockdown, a survey by

Alzheimer’s Society reveals.

The charity is helping to alleviate the anxiety

many face by making thousands of ‘welfare calls’

to provide support and information. In the East

Midlands more than 6,000 calls have already been

made by staff and volunteers determined to reach out

to those in need.

Jean Eastwood (pictured above), of Nottingham, who

has Alzheimer’s and lives alone, said: “Because of

living on my own the lockdown has affected my daily

regime by restricting meetings, gatherings and my

volunteering activities.

“It has also affected my memory. I am forgetting to

turn off electrical items such as the grill, the oven and

the hot water switch in the last few days.”

Alzheimer’s Society is calling for people to sign up

and become a Dementia Friend. For more information


Alzheimer’s Society’s funds have been badly hit by

the pandemic. Donations to their Emergency Appeal

can be made at

Alzheimer’s Society Dementia Advisers provide

emotional support and practical

information during this difficult time.

“it’s ok not to be ok”

-introducing jonathan’s


by Val McCartney Founder & Trustee

the miles for maggie’s


by Maggie’s Centres Nottingham

Jonathan’s Voice is a registered charity that

was established in 2017 in memory of Jonathan

McCartney who tragically and unexpectedly took

his own life in October of that year. He was 35.

Jonathan was a successful patent attorney. We were

shocked when we subsequently learnt how many

people each year die by suicide. In 2018 there were

6,507 suicides registered in the UK, an average of

18 each day and sadly more than in 2017. Suicide is

more prevalent in men than in woman and is the most

common cause of death in men aged 20 – 49.

We came to understand that Jonathan had been

struggling for a long time but felt unable to seek

professional help. He felt that he should be able to

manage on his own. Research studies consistently

show how reluctant many people are to discuss their

mental health, particularly with their employer. There

may be many reasons for this but one is certainly a

sense that there is a stigma around the topic.

One of the prime aims of Jonathan’s Voice is to

reduce that stigma associated with mental health

and to empower people to speak up and reach out

for help when they need it. The charity aims to raise

awareness of mental health issues in workplaces,

provide resources and support organizations to

develop good mental health practice. We also offer

bespoke presentations and talks to both companies

and community groups. For further information

This month, cancer charity Maggie’s Nottingham

is encouraging people to walk 12,000 steps a day

to help them support the 1 in 2 people who will get

cancer in their lifetime.

As more people live longer with cancer, charity

Maggie’s Nottingham is seeing an increasing need

for practical and emotional support to help people

cope with the changes that cancer brings. Maggie’s

offers free support and advice on living well with

cancer. This includes ensuring that people with

cancer are really listened to, that they are offered

tailored individual support, group support and

practical advice. All of which is delivered by qualified

professionals in a comfortable setting that enables

people to meet others who understand what it

means to be living with cancer too.

All of the money raised through the Miles for

Maggie’s challenge will make sure Maggie’s

Nottingham can continue to provide free,

professional support to all those living with cancer

who need it, as well as their family and friends.

Do 12,000 steps a day for a month and help us

support the 1 in 2 people who will get cancer in their

lifetime. Register now and get a free t-shirt:

Nottingham based TFN Triathlon Club have kept

active during lockdown by taking part in a duathlon

race to Kona, Hawaii (virtually, of course!) to raise

money for local charities.

Clubs from all over the UK entered the Corona to

Kona race. TFN entered two teams consisting of

novices right up to European and World champion

level athletes.

Kona is where the Ironman World Championships are

held. Ironman is an iconic race where athletes cover

2.4 miles swimming in the sea, 112km cycling and a

26.2 marathon run, all in one go.

The distance from Manchester (where the race

will start) to Kona saw a total of 570 athletes in 18

teams covering a distance of 2300km running and

13000km cycling. The first club to reach Kona won.

Jo Mallinson, from TFN said;

“It’s great to bring everyone together and contribute to

an event as a whole club. This is extremely important

now as we can’t have club sessions; it gives people

a sense of being in a community while still social


It was a fantastic achievement for the club, finishing

the challenge and they raised over £1500 for some

exercise equipment for the Nottingham Cancer Ward

at City Hospital.

If you would like more information on the club

please visit or call Jo on 07545

Kia Stinger 2.0 T-GDI GT-Line S:

Say What I Feel

The Kia Stinger is the fi rst car in a

long time that has had people

stopping and staring as they go

about their daily business. Whether

it’s the supermarket car park,

driving along the High Street or

going to work, the Stinger turns

heads wherever you go. That is a

very a good thing.

The Stinger exudes presence and

power from the long bonnet,

aggressive intakes fl owing

beautifully from the signature tiger

grille, gaping air scoops and clever

full LED headlights. Combine these

with the dark chrome fi nished

outside mirror, dark chrome

fi nished trim & 19” alloy wheels and

you’re presented with what Kia

call, refi ned, performanceoriented


The rear of the car is even more

striking with LED combination lamps

and quad oval exhaust pipes.

18” disc brakes with Brembo® red

brake calipers add even more

style and purpose, hinting at the

performance on offer and stand

out beautifully against the ceramic

grey of the 2.0 T-GDI GT-Line S

on test.

Sitting inside the Kia Stinger 2.0

T-GDI GT-Line S and you’re struck

by the quality looks and feel to

all that you come into contact

with. Leather seats offer up plenty

of the adjustability as well as

being heated and ventilated

for front passengers and heated

for the outer rear. There are

also exceptional circular vents,

metal-ringed gauges and satin

chrome trim. Access to essential

driving information can be had

courtesy of the supervision cluster

in the instrument panel or through

the unbelievably clear and

customisable Head-Up Display.

A feature that really comes into

its own when concentrating

fully on the road ahead as it offers

up driver speed, turn-by-turn

navigation, smart cruise control

settings, intelligent speed limit

warning and blind spot detection


Centrally mounted is an 8”

touchscreen system that allows

access to the vast majority of

the car’s functions including

multimedia, sat nav, Bluetooth

streaming, DAB and so on whilst

the high defi nition 7” TFT LCD in

between the speedometer and rev

counter offers up driving essentials

such as average fuel economy

or turn-by-turn navigation

information. A simple to use system

that offers benefi ts above and

beyond for the driver. And have I

mentioned the optional 15-speaker

harman / kardon® premium audio

system with subwoofer, external

amp & front centre speaker yet?

Sport+ selected, fi rst gear engaged

using the fl appy paddles to move

up and down the super smooth

8-speed automatic gearbox

and away you go, the 2.0 T-GDI

delivering 353Nm torque from 1400-

4000rpm and more than enough

power for our tight and twisting

roads. Spin the turbocharged

4-cylinder towards it’s 6200rpm

redline and you’re rewarded with

ever increasing waves of power

and noise pushing you rapidly

towards the horizon at signifi cant


With rear wheel drive on offer for

the traditionally sporting driver,

you’re in a car that turns beautifully

due to the front wheels only having

to steer rather than handle the

engine’s power as well.

As you toggle through the driver

settings, preparing the car for a

long motorway slog, shopping trip

or just the commute to work you

have the knowledge that beneath

you and a turn of a dial away, is a

true sports saloon.

This is a car that could and really

should provide the family man/

woman with a way out, an escape

from monotony and dreariness,

the sounds of freedom barking

from the Stinger’s exhaust and

scrabbling traction control. Have

your cake and eat it? For £29,995

with Kia’s current customer saving

offer, absolutely.

Janet & I run a small

nursery called Special

Perennials, our website is



Pretty in Pink

We’re all spending more

time in our gardens and

it’s lovely to sit and relax

surrounded by soft, calming

coloured flowers and what

is more calming and pretty

than pink.

There are so many shades of

pink flower to choose, from

the palest blush through to

luxurious lipstick pink. Pink is

an easy colour to combine

– just avoid orange unless

you like jarring clashes. Here

are some of my summertime

favourite pink flowers.

Annual lobelias are usually

blue but there are plenty of

pink perennial types. These

have upright stems and form

neat clumps. Lobelia Compton

Pink (pale pink flowers), Lobelia

Russian Princess (shocking

pink flowers and bronze leaves

and stems) and Lobelia Tania

purple-pink flowers) are all

very lovely. Generally, Lobelias

require moist soil in summer

but good drainage in winter.

This is achieved by adding lots

of grit and compost to the soil

There are many lovely pink

hardy Geraniums to choose

from. The low growing, sun

loving Elke is particularly

tough and make a lovely

edging against a patio or path.

Sherwood is taller and has

intriguing, rolled up petals.

Scent in the garden is a

must have and the border

pink Devon Wizard has a

spellbinding fragrance and

bold, bright magenta flowers

that are also great for cutting.

If you keep him dead-headed

he will weave his magic right to

the end of autumn.

One of the most impressive

pink flowers in my garden

are the large, thistle-like,

fuchsia-pink heads of the

Stemmacantha that erupt from

ping-pong ball sized silver buds

in June and July. Once the

flowers have finished the seed

heads give prolonged interest

and feed finches in winter.

Another striking looking

flower is that of the Japanese

burnet (Sanguisorba obtusa),

affectionately known as the

Barbara Cartland flower in our

garden as the long, feathery,

We also organise Plant Hunters’

Fairs, specialist plant fairs at

wonderful locations throughout

the season. This year we had

planned plant fairs during July at

Middleton Hall, Tamworth and the

National Memorial Arboretum,

Alrewas and during August at

Carsington Water, Derbyshire and

Southwell Minster. At the time of

writing this they are all suspended

and we are not sure if they will be

able to run or not, so please keep

up to date with all our latest plant

fair information by visiting www.

candy pink flowers look just like the

one of the feather boas that might

have graced the great lady’s outfits.

The variety Rock and Roll is shorter

with masses of upright pink flowers.

Echinacea (coneflower) have

become very popular over the last

few years, but some of the new,

exotically coloured varieties aren’t

very hardy. I stick to the old, pinkflowered

favourites like Rubinstern

with its large pink daisy flowers and

prickly, honey-scented cones. A

must for bees and butterflies!

With so many lovely flowers and

shades to choose from there’s no

reason why your garden shouldn’t

be pretty in pink the whole summer

Woods of Mapperley

by Bob Massey

While looking up information on Mapperley

it struck me just how many of the areas road

names have something to do with trees;

Wood Lane, Coppice Road, Corporation Oaks,

Elm Avenue, Chestnut Grove, Elm Bank,

Woodborough Road, Springwood Gardens,

Beech Avenue and Hazel Grove, to name but a

few. These road names are all that remain as

clues to Mapperley’s ancient past.

cut down for building and ship construction.

When they were gone, the land at the top of the

present Coppice Road was turned into pasture

for sheep.

The Basford and Algarthorpe woods once

continued all the way to Mapperley, covering

a larger part of the north western slope of the

present town.

Before the 1850s Mapperley was a wind swept,

inhospitable place in winter with nothing but a

few farm buildings, a couple of houses and the

early brick works. Most people who worked in

the area lived elsewhere and walked to work

each day. There was only one road and this was

little more than a track across the hills.

The area did have trees a plenty as it was still

part of Sherwood Forest at the time. Some

of these trees had grown naturally but many

had been planted and maintained to provide

a timber supply for the ever increasing needs

of Nottingham. The trees also formed a wind

shield, breaking up the strong winds that blew

across the hill top, to shelter the few houses

and farms.

Going further back to the middle ages, Mapperley

hills were covered with trees. As early as the

14th century wood was being harvested from

Mapperley forests. In 1336 Robert de Crophill

sold to William de Amyas “half an acre which

lies in the Wodefield.”

In 1335, Red Lane was described as leading

from the Forest to the Coppice, and being

described as the wood of Nottingham (the one

that supplied Nottingham’s timber). At the time

it provided the main source of Nottingham’s

fuel. The trees were cut down and used, lawfully

and unlawfully, in the days before coal was

commonly used. There was no-one to see you

taking the trees in this wild and uninhabited


The present Coppice Road led to the Coppice

which was well stocked with oaks. These were

North of this was the wood of Arnold, from

which Hugh de Neville, in 1221, gave two cart

loads of wood each week to the Hospital House

of Saint John in Nottingham.

Thorney wood itself covered the plains from

Mapperley to Woodborough. On the southern

slope was the Gedling wood, and the Marshall

hills. During holiday times Nottingham people

went nutting and blackberrying.

Thoroton, the historian, wrote that; “The soil is

generally of the most fertile in England, except

a great part of the Forest of Sherwood, which

was the most pleasant, but by the abominable

destruction of woods is now much otherwise.”

With the need for bricks during the industrial

revolution due to the increased building, trees

disappeared at an alarming rate. The cleared

areas made good growing land and farms

sprang up to fuel the ever growing population

with food rather than timber.

What was once a scene of wilderness was in

marked contrast to the present town.

I am researching the history of Mapperley and would be very pleased to hear from anyone with

more details or information. Email: or post via NG5 magazine.

We are all looking for a return on our investment

with whatever marketing activity we undertake for

our businesses.

What if we were to tell you that there is a tried and

tested method to generating referrals? One that

works worldwide, but runs on a local level as well.

One that doesn’t provide cold leads, but fully

warmed up introductions where the ‘potential’ client

is already in the market for your services, and is

expecting your call. This is because a fellow member

will already have done the groundwork for you.

In a nutshell, that’s how BNI works.

It’s like having your own external marketing

department keeping their eyes peeled and their ears

to the ground, listening out for when their friends,

family, clients and contacts mention a need, that

they know a fellow member can fill.

You might ask “Why would they go to all that trouble

for me?” It’s because the ethos of BNI is ‘Givers

Gain’... “If I find an opportunity for you, you are likely

to want to try and find one for me”, it’s reciprocal and

human nature that when someone does you a good

deed, you want to help them in return.

At BNI Business Team, (based in Arnold), our sole

aim is to make our members more money by finding

them referral opportunities.

Here’s what our resident printer has to say on how it

helps his business.

As an 8 year member, our company has

gone from strength-to-strength. We now

have staff, 2 offices and have tripled our

turnover built on the weekly referrals we

receive from the group.

Phil Simpson - Code Print

Are you looking

to grow your


Would you like to be introduced to

other local companies that can

help you achieve this?

We are a networking group that meets

weekly, with the aim of finding each

other business by referral.

We’d love you to come and visit, to find

out more about how referral marketing can

help drive your business forward.

Due to Covid-19 we are currently

conducting meetings via Zoom. Get in

touch and we can send you an invite.*

Date: Thursdays 7.30 - 9.00am

Cost: FREE**

*We will return to face-to-face meetings at our

usual venue in Arnold as soon as it is safe to do so.

**Once face-to-face meetings resume, a cost of

£10.00 will apply.

Have your say on local policing priorities in your area

Thousands of people have been telling police

‘what matters’ to them after Nottinghamshire

Police encouraged communities to come forward

to help shape local policing priorities in their area,

as part of one of the force’s biggest-ever public

consultation exercises.

Nottinghamshire Police has been encouraging

communities to have their say in the force’s new

neighbourhood policing priority survey which is

already helping neighbourhood policing teams to

decide where they should be focusing their efforts.

Nottinghamshire Police Chief Constable Craig

Guildford said: “Neighbourhood policing is at the

heart of Nottinghamshire Police’s work and this

initiative is an extension of our commitment to

engage with the communities we serve to ensure

that we’re continuing to focus on what matters most

to local people.

“Focusing on specific priorities within each

neighbourhood is already helping to address issues

as they are raised and this work will help to ensure

that we can focus on more of what matters to local

people as our ambitious recruitment plans continue

and we introduce proactive policing teams into each

area of the county.”

How are local neighbourhood policing priorities


Neighbourhood policing priorities are informed by

local crime and incident data before being agreed

by each area’s neighbourhood policing inspector

in agreement with local partners and elected


The results from the survey will be used to help

shape local policing priorities by enabling officers

working across the county to better understand

what matters most to the communities they serve.

Once agreed, each area’s priorities are published

on the Nottinghamshire Police website alongside

monthly updates about progress being made to

address them.

The survey complements the existing public

consultation activity undertaken by the county’s

Police and Crime Commissioner, Paddy Tipping, and

is already being used to inform how local policing

priorities are decided.

Lockdown Tale

By the time you read this we may, hopefully, be

starting to get back to normal. For now though,

here’s a lighthearted peek into our lockdown family


All back to ours – 15 minutes after arriving back

from university you couldn’t see an inch of the

eldests bedroom carpet, even the dog nearly broke

its neck trying to get in to say hello. The treat

cupboard emptied within a day and apparently I have

been under-feeding him for 19 years!!! On the plus

side he can now cook and miraculously he no longer

requires any of his clothes to be ironed. Amazing


Son no.2 who is half man, half mattress, joined me

for a dog walk – unheard of BL (before lockdown).

It was lovely until the point he decided to ask if we

could stop so he could roll a cigarette!!!!! Guess he’s

figured out I’m too tired to argue with him (he was

right!). He’s also lost 3kg now he’s not shovelling

Doritos down at a rate of a family bag per day.

I do realise that family time is precious, but if I have

to listen to the futile scraping of a spoon on the

bottom of an empty yogurt pot one more time, while

I’m trying to watch telly, I am self isolating myself in

my bedroom for the next two months!!

Group chats – video chats are great for keeping in

touch, although I did wonder who the scarecrow was

on our work call yesterday, and realised it was me!

It took my mum and me 40 minutes to set up a

Zoom chat last Thursday. Finally we could see and

hear each other when the clapping started outside

so we had to say goodbye and rush out to join the

rest of the street. Running from the back door to the

front clapping like looneys. The drawbacks of an

over-looked garden.

Grooming – does anyone even bother washing their

hair anymore?...At least I can put mine in a ponytail.

Youngest son now looks like Oscar Wilde and oldest

like a Spandau Ballet throwback. Even the dogs are

suffering. Poor Harry looked like an electrocuted

sheep. Alarm bells rang when I arrived home, turned

on the lap top and saw the last google search; “can

you cut a dogs hair with human clippers?” …fast

forward three days and I can tell you the answer is

yes …but the poor thing looks like he’s been in an

industrial accident with a combine harvester. Who

knew there was such a thing as a canine mullet??

Shopping – after the initial panic buying nonsense,

we have all settled into a resigned routine around

shopping. More of us are becoming inventive with

ingredients and experimenting. Mushrooms instead

of mince anyone? Rich Tea instead of Hob Nobs? –

actually, no, that is a step too far.

Garden centres are now open which is great news.

However, trying to locate a growbag bought a whole

new level of pain and I was reliably informed that

compost is the new toilet roll! The cycle of lockdown


Thankfully the shops seem to have remained well

stocked with wine and beer, especially Corona Extra

(mountains of that everywhere). However, we have

avoided shopping as regularly as we normally do

and this led to a red wine shortage and a small

crisis in our house. Whilst emptying the larder

looking for a cashew nut substitute (sunflower

seeds in case you were wondering) I found a

dusty bottle of mixed fruit cider circa 2011, kindly

gifted to us by a home brewing friend. We dusted

it off, popped the cork and convinced ourselves it

tasted perfectly lovely. In all honesty under normal

circumstances we would have probably used it to

clean the drains (sorry Sylvain!), however right now,

any port (or cider) in the storm will do.

does your family have a

‘photographs’ drawer?

by Pete Jenkins, Detail Photography

nottingham industrial


by Nottingham Industrial Museum

I am a photographer and have been all my working

life. As I can’t go out and take photo’s at the moment,

I am sharing some insider tips with you.

When I am not photographing rugby, or events, I scan

and digitise old photographs. I also renovate those new

digital images allowing old photographs to be seen by a

new generation (see above).

My mum had a photograph drawer. That is to say, a

big drawer in the ‘welsh-dresser’ into which all family

photographs went. I wonder how many of you have a

similar collection.

It was not until (sadly) she became incapacitated that

I had proper access to it and all it contained. What a

wonderful treasure trove I found. When you have a

collection of photos like this, it makes sense to try and

organise them. Ideally, one needs to:

1. Identify the people in the pictures. If one person can

be identified, perhaps they can tell you who the others


2. Ascertain when they were taken. It is worth noting

that machine prints often have the date of processing/

printing stamped on the back.

3. Identify where the snapshot was taken. Shop names,

landmarks, all can help. Sometimes the name of the

photo shop will be stamped on the back.

Photographs and photographic paper can be delicate

and sometimes difficult to write on so it might be a good

idea to obtain some sticky labels that you can write the

details on and then attach to the photo – preventing

further damage.

Nottingham Industrial Museum, the hidden

treasure in the courtyards of Wollaton Hall and

Deer Park have not let the Covid 19 emergency get

them down as their dedicated team of volunteers

continue to roll out the accolades.

Earlier in 2020, when travel was still possible, a team

from the World History Project travelled to the UK to

collect material for a series of videos that form part

of the curriculum in approximately 8000 schools

across the world.

To the delight of the researchers, presenters and

production team some of the most significant and

affecting of the videos features the story of the life

of ‘Nailers’ in Victorian times. The story adapted

and portrayed by NIM volunteer Avi Benn (aka Mrs

Mary Ann Bird in her Victorian Kitchen exhibit) has

been quoted by researcher, Professor Trevor Getz

from University of San Francisco State as ‘giving

an extraordinarily well-designed, pedagogically

intentional, and compelling history’.

This was further acknowledged as the Museum were

named as Finalists in both the ‘Volunteer of the Year’

and ‘Small Charity – Big Impact’ categories of the

East Midlands Charity Awards, on the same day! A

fitting response to their hard work and dedication.

Previews of the films can be viewed at www. For information on when

Nottingham Industrial Museum will re-open visit Want to

join us? Volunteering enquiries are always welcome.

Mapperley Scarecrow

Festival Raises SPIRITS

by Coop Member Pioneer Maria Narducci

The Mapperley Scarecrow Festival was created to

raise community spirits during lockdown. It was a

great success with over 150 scarecrows displayed.

There was so much positive feedback from the

residents about the festival and many used the

map to create walking and cycling routes to see

scarecrows for their daily exercise.

The festival included a competition with prizes

donated by local businesses. The winner of the

Public Vote category was ‘Florence the Superhero

Frontline Worker’ created by the ‘Hands of Kindness’

group who are residents of Beech Avenue who also

work hard making scrubs from the NHS. They won a

beautiful hamper from Deli-icious which they in turn

donated to the Florence Ward of City Hospital.

The Best Dressed category was judged by Vernon

Coaker and was won by ‘Shelly the Mermaid’ with a

prize of a family pass to White Post Farm.

Best Use of Recycled Materials was won by Daisy

with Recycled Reggie who won a ‘Big Night In’

hamper from the Co-op.

The festival was organised by local mums, Natasha,

Natalie and Maria. Maria is also the Mapperley Co-op

Member Pioneer.

Visit the ‘What’s On Mapperely’ Facebook Group for

photos of all the scarecrows. Group members can

also view an online map with 110 scarecrows plotted

on it. To date this has been viewed over 2500 times.

Back in April, nature enthusiasts from across

Nottingham took part in the City Nature Challenge,

an annual event documenting nature and helping

us to better understand urban biodiversity.

Nature spotters took to their back gardens,

allotments, ponds and sheds to use the mobile app

iNaturalist to record the urban wildlife that is usually


Over 2700 observations were made by over 100

observers in Nottingham city, including 673 different

species. Out of the ten areas across the UK that took

part, Nottingham was the smallest city, but held its

own, recording the most observations, species and

observers per square kilometre.

The most common recordings were of blackbirds,

cow parsley and herb robert, regularly spotted at

this time of year, but there were also some more

unusually named species, such as a zebra jumping

spider and farinose cartilage lichen. There was also

one photograph of a European Orchard Bee, a solitary

bee which was first recorded in the south east of

Britain in 2017, and which could be the first time one

has been spotted in Nottingham.

The City Nature Challenge originally began as a

competition between San Francisco and Los Angeles

in 2016, and has now grown into an international

competition with over 200 cities taking part. Even

with the global pandemic preventing events taking place,

over 41,000 people took part worldwide, recording over

800,000 observations and 32,000 species.

Angels Twelve are delighted and

excited to welcome Dr Tracey to

be part of the specialist medical

aesthetic team at their prestigious

clinic in Nottingham.

Dr Tracy Luting Xu graduated from one of

the Top 3 Medical Schools in China in 2009

with a MBBS (Bachelor of Medicine and

Surgery). She gained a distinction so was

granted direct entrance to the post graduate

training in China’s best Plastic Surgery

hospital, People’s Ninth in Shanghai for one

year of post graduate training. She was

trained in some cosmetic surgery procedures,

reconstructive surgery and also aesthetic

treatments such as anti-wrinkle injections

and dermal fillers. She obtained her PHD at

the University of Nottingham in 2015 then

worked for the NHS in Plastic Surgery from

her graduation. Because she has a special

interest in aesthetics, she started her own

part time practice in early 2016 and has

progressed through advanced training to

now work full time. She is a Level 7 student

in injectables and Cosmetic Dermatology

with Harley Academy and her ethos is

exactly the same as ours, she promotes a

natural, healthy and glowing result for all her

clients. Dr Tracey also has special interest in

nutrition and weight management and she

offer fat dissolving treatments which are new

to Angels Twelve but the results speak for




with Dr Tracey Xu

at Angels Twelve

• I exercise and eat a healthy diet

but no matter what I do I can’t

lose weight on my tummy.

• I really hate my double chin and

even when I lose weight it still

stays there.

• After I had my baby, I got back

into shape healthily but stubborn

fat around the sides of my tummy

just won’t go away.

Sounds familiar?

You are not alone. No one in the world, if they

are completely honest, are completely happy

with their body, everyone has areas that they

don’t like.

If you’ve gained a few extra pounds during

lockdown (who hasn’t) and this fat has

accumulated around those stubborn areas, don’t

worry we are here to help.

Book an appointment with Dr Tracey for a

consultation she will advise and explain the

benefits of fat dissolving injections and if it will

be right for you.

25% Off in July & August 2020 on all fat dissolving treatments

Dr Tracey answers all you need to know

about fat dissolving treatment

Is this for me?

Fat dissolving injection is a quick and safe nonsurgical

method of treating fat that remains

despite a healthy diet and regular exercise.

If you’re exercising, eating well and yet there are

still those last few areas you can’t seem to shift,

then this treatment is for you.

How does it work?

Desobody fat-dissolving injections work by

destroying fat cells in targeted areas. Literally,

they damage the fat cell membranes which in turn

liquifies the fat present in the body.

These fat cells, once destroyed, are then broken

down and naturally removed via the lymphatic

system within the body.

Which areas can be treated?

Typical areas that can be treated by DesoBody

or DesoFace include inner thighs, inner knees,

double chins, back and bra rolls, flanks, abdomen

and saddlebags.

How many treatments will I need?

Typically, an average of two to four vials of

DesoBody injections are required per treated

area, per session. This number will, of course, vary

depending on the individual size and type of the

area being treated, and the best course for your

particular needs will be discussed at a consultation.

You would normally need at least three sessions,

with six-week intervals being the typical gap

between each visit. Again, this number will

depend on how much fat needs to be treated

in a specific area, and the actual number will be

discussed at a consultation.

What does DesoBody treatment

feel like?

Discomfort and sensitivity are an inevitable part

of any cosmetic treatment, but the good news is

that symptoms should only be mild to moderate,

and easily tolerated. The treatment is minimally

invasive and a local anesthetic is included in the

injectable and will be administered to lessen the

impact of any pain felt during the procedure.

How long will it take for the skin to

return to normal?

The redness and swelling that appear following

the injection typically will disappear three or

four days after treatment. You may then find that

minor bruising and a localized tenderness around

the treated area will persist up to 14 days after the


Are there any do’s and don’ts

following the treatment?

Avoid hot baths or hot showers on the day of the


Wear a compression garment (i.e. Spanx) on the

treated area for up to 72 hours.

Avoid using active creams, exfoliants and self-tan

on the treated area for at least one week following


How long do the results last?

Typically, after two to three weeks you will start

to see the positive effects of your treatment. Each

patient’s time frames will differ. Please note that

a continued course of treatments is required for

optimal results.

The results should be expected to be permanent

as long as a healthy lifestyle is maintained. As we

are actively destroying the fat cells, once they’re

gone, they’re definitely gone.

As gyms and health facilities around

the world are slowly beginning to

open their doors, I sit here writing

this wondering, will your approach

to your own health have changed?

Over the last few weeks we’ve been graced

with SO many free home workouts and

different ways to keep the pounds off and our

activity high.

Which way will you move forward?

Did you try something new recently?

Here are a few ways some of us have

managed to keep fit and well and our mental

health focused;


• Home workouts

• Yoga

• Animal Flow (this was a new one for me too)

• Calisthenics (body weight training)

Online Coaching

Using online coaching services, having

someone fully support and hold you

accountable to your custom fitness journey.

Online Fitness Programs


• The Body Coach

• Your local personal trainer moving into

online coaching sessions.

It’s been amazing to see so many people

focus on their health. Maybe an increased

awareness of the importance of a healthy,

active body and a focused, clear mind has

allowed so many of us to have such positive

journeys over the past few months.

If you haven’t tried any of the listed

recommendations, or you have but want to

explore others…. GO FOR IT!

Make life as rich and full as possible.

Here are a few simple rules to keep in mind

when choosing to make a positive health


To lose body fat you need to create a daily

deficit (intake of calories) by 300-500 calories

per day. 500 per day over a week is 3500

calories and that’s what it takes to burn 1lb of

body fat.

To gain some muscle is a surplus of 200-500

calories per day and expect to gain a little

body fat to, don’t believe the myths of you

can have it all. For most, 99% of us have to

choose a focus. The more muscle you have

the faster you’ll burn body fat…tip of the trade

right there.

Next, you can eat how you wish…but know

the more processed food we consume the

harder we make it for our body to process.

You’ll find greater volumes of food in

wholesome form. So, fill that plate up with the

good stuff as often as possible to help keep

calories low and food volume high.

Lastly, ENJOY what you do. Being healthy

should be a benefit to life, not a drain and

chore so find a way to exercise that fits your

U16 England


Hi my name

is Olivia Lowe.

At the age of

7, I decided

to get involved in

football. The opportunity arose

via a friend of my Mum’s whose

daughters were training with Gedling

Southbank Girls football team. I

thoroughly enjoyed the training

and continued going on a weekly

basis. We had a really good team

and over 3 seasons we won

numerous competitions. I then

took the decision to trial for an

Academy and was offered a squad

place at Leicester City under 12s.

We had a great team and played in

the West Midlands Junior Premier

League and made some great

friends from across the Midlands

and beyond. I also won Managers

player of the year in my first season

at Leicester, something I am very

proud of to this day. I have remained

with Leicester to the present day

and have recently been offered a

contract with the under 16s, which I

have accepted. My football journey

then took another step recently

after being offered a place with

the England Schoolgirls FA under

15s, after 3 separate demanding

trials. The ESFA experience has

been amazing. I have been lucky in

my football career, having brilliant

coaches and playing alongside some

outstanding players. I personally

cannot wait to get things going

again and am so looking forward to

playing competitive football.

1. Always ‘listen to’ and respect your


2. Learn to use both feet.

3. Consider additional

training outside of squad training

and matches.

4. Respect your team mates, no

matter what, encourage at every


5. Work on areas where you know

you have been advised to improve. If

you don’t know what they are - ASK.





I joined Arnold


Club in 2011

aged 9.

After some success

in the County Championships

I was approached by Nova the

county swimming squad to go and

train with them. With lots of hard

work and dedication I qualified for

my first Swim England National

Championship aged 13. I came 16 th

nationally in my age group for 200

breast. This spurred me on and at 14

I qualified for 100 breast at the British

Championships. I was so nervous I

thought I was going to wobble off

the block!

I qualified for Swim England

Summer 2019 Championships in

100 & 200 breast and came second

in both races which was a great

achievement for me.

The season was on track, I

competed at Luxembourg in my

first international meet and I am the

current County Champion for 100

& 200 breast. I also qualified for

Olympic trials in 100 and 200 breast

which were due to take place in April

2020 at the Aquatic Centre, London.

Unfortunately, this hasn’t happened

due to coronavirus. There was

an outside chance of obtaining a

European Junior qualifying time but I

guess we will never know!

My sport requires me to train 18

hours in the pool with an additional

4 hours in the gym every week.

This requires me to be on poolside

5.30am 4 times a week and evenings

4pm – 7.15pm 6 days a week.

1. Take one stage at a time

2. Technique is king - master the


3. Obtain feedback from your coach

and act on it

4. Be resilient - it won’t always go

your way

5. Always give 100%, even when the

going gets tough





My sports

journey: I


triathlon at

the age of 7 at Absolute Triathlon

Club. I carried my love for training

all the way through and won the

British Elite National Championships

in 2015. In 2019, I competed at

the British Age Group National

Championships. And after a tough

year with exams, managed to pull

out a solid performance to win

my age group. Triathlon offers

great opportunities for people to

compete at both elite and age group

standards across a wide range of

distances. Moving forward, I am

looking at Universities where I can

study alongside training, to build

my fitness and mental resillance

further to hopefully progress onto

a career as a British Army Officer.

Sport has given me the opportunity

to train and compete across the

country and abroad, where I have

met people who are now my closest

friends, some of who plan to train

to the highest levels and are aiming

to compete in elite and professional


1 Find something you enjoy. There

are loads of local clubs and teams

for a range of sports. There is

something for everyone

2 Keep consistent. Getting into a

routine will help getting organised

for everything you do in your daily

lives and it is where you will see the

most progress in training

3 Make it social. The social aspect

of sport is amazing! It will keep you

motivated to train and every club

has amazing people to meet and

train with.

4 Stick with it!! The first few weeks

and months will be really hard as you

build fitness and skills. Stick with it!!

5 Find a balance between the ratio

of training and rest. Don’t overload

yourself or you will get mentally and

physically burned out. Take time to

balance work/ social/ training.



The Marvel Cinematic Universe is crammed

full of gems, but, in my opinion, there is one

movie that perfectly blends all the elements

that have made this franchise so spectacular.

That movie is: Captain America Civil War.

Currently available on Disney+, Civil War

shows the Avenger’s darkest hour. When

a legislation proposes that the Avengers

become a government controlled team, the

Earth’s mightiest heroes are cracked in half

over the decision.

Even though the cast is large, every single

character is perfectly portrayed, both by

the incredible talent on display, and the

phenomenal writing. No matter how long their

screen time, every character has a clear and

compelling arc that is driven by motivations

that encapsulate their legendary character.

Directors the Russo Brothers impeccably

balance and pace the movie, allowing time

for the script’s complex and fascinating moral

debates to breathe whilst also giving every

character a moment, and let’s not forget those

hero on hero brawls.

Of which are jaw dropping. Every single action

sequence takes full advantage of a character’s

abilities and shows them off in the coolest way

possible with industry best choreography.

Whether it is the enthralling story, heart

pounding action, or ethical debate at the

backbone of this piece, you are never allowed

to be bored in this perfectly balanced and

concocted movie.

Character studies are a tricky thing. Gaining an insight

into a dark mind to provide food for thought while

keeping your film entertaining with a unique style is an

achievement not too commonly found across modern

Hollywood. For a textbook definition on how to nail this,

one needs look no further than Paul Thomas Anderson’s

masterpiece from 2007: There Will Be Blood.

At the beginning of America’s roots in the 20th century,

a cynical self-made oilman makes it his mission to be

able to drill on fertile lands to make enough money to

set him up for life alongside his son. But when he butts

heads with an obnoxious land-owning preacher and his

drilling efforts go awry, Daniel Plainview’s inner demons

begin eating at him.

What makes this film exceptional is its subtle morbidity

in its cinematography and soundtrack (composed by

renowned Radiohead guitarist Jonny Greenwood) which

turns a seemingly simple narrative into a rollercoaster

ride of emotion and characterisation. Right from the

start, with a very time-taking montage of a younger

Plainview’s gruelling mining efforts to striking black

gold, it’s clear this film sinks its teeth into well-crafted

symbolism and atmospheric-immersion. This is only

completed by Daniel Day Lewis giving, what I would

proclaim, the greatest performance of the 21st

century yet as Daniel Plainview with his phenomenal

John-Wayne-style vocal domination and bottled-up

monstrosity. If you have any interest into how films can

experiment with emotional ambiguity and character

study, this is a must-watch and one I will continue to

revisit for years to come.

There Will Be Blood is

Special Halloween


Nottingham’s only horror experience set

within a maize maze.

A certain group of inmates have escaped from

Darlington Prison and the army have managed

to detain them inside the maze - for now.

This is not a standard round-up operation.

Civilian help is required as the inmates are

not behaving as first anticipated and only the

prison doctor knows why.

For more information on what we

offer and to book tickets check out

or call Aaron on 07515 359203.

Win 1 of 10 family passes*




which can be redeemed up until the end of October.

Just answer the following question:

How many acres is the maze?

On writing this I am acutely aware that I don’t

own a crystal ball so have no way of knowing

what the world will look like by the time this is

published. Right now, we’re in the midst of the

national Coronavirus lockdown and no one

can predict what’s going to happen. What I can

tell you, in no uncertain terms, is what the last

couple of weeks in my house have looked like,

and how far from the Apocalypse my little piece

of England is.

Forgive the hyperbole but I’ve gone straight to

a place where I’m basically imagining living

in a Mad Max movie. Hopefully this means I

get a great car and some utterly over the top

clothing, I think I could just about pull off postapocalypse

chic. But only just. But it seems like

a good time to rewatch all the films, just in case

I need tips.

Amidst all the uncertainty of what’s happening

right now I’ve been impressed by just how well

the kids have coped. Sure, they get bored of

being in the house every day and not seeing

their friends. Video chats help but it’s not the

same as actually hanging out with your mates.

Online games have allowed them another

way to keep in touch and my oldest plays his

mates at Fortnite with his headphones on which

ironically is the loudest thing in the house as he

has no idea just how loudly he is shouting to his

friends. The hardest thing has been that they

may well have broken up for the school year for

good which means they miss out on all the end

of term fun.

My wife and I have both been keen to keep some

structure in the house (more for our benefit than

the kids to be honest) and we’ve made sure they

still do their school work before they get the fun

stuff. We’re no Victorians though, we very much

spare the birch and don’t work them too hard.

It’s times like these you start to really appreciate

just what a skill it is to keep a classroom of 30

kids under control (nice one teachers, you know

who you are). But the structure definitely helps,

especially as both my wife and I work full time

so we can’t spend our entire days entertaining

our children. And while I’m on it, no one in

our house believes any of these idealised ways

that you’re told to plan your days with a full

house and no escape. I’m not pretending it’s

easy. We’ve variously had screaming, shouting,

doors being slammed, swearing, tantrums and

threats. But aside from the wife and I, the kids

have been amazing.

So far exercise has also helped. Like everyone

in the world we appear to be doing the daily

Joe Wicks exercises and it turns out that my

daughter is the fittest person in our house by

a country mile. This is quite a kick in the teeth

to be honest as my wife runs half marathons, I

cycle every day, and my son plays more football

than I thought was humanly possible. But every

day we are reminded of the boundless energy

of a 9 year old.

Amidst all this uncertainty we have managed to

spend an awful lot of time together, which in

and of itself has been fantastic. As the pace of

life has changed we have made sure that we

take things a little less for granted, do things as

a family unit, and make sure we keep in touch

with extended family more often. And it feels

like our local community is a little tighter, even

if that’s just knocking on the neighbours door to

check if everything is okay. Whatever happens in

the future we’re all hoping that these little things

stay with us. Although

I’m still hoping for Mad

Max’s V8 Interceptor.

Edging into my forties, I’m

a wrangler of two young

children who are either

going to keep me eternally

young or drive me to an early grave. I’ll be sharing

some of my experiences of parenthood and my terrible

attempts at staying relevant!

Jerry Green Dog Rescue is urging you to keep your

dog safe in the heat this summer. Whether you’re

off for a long trek through the countryside or

simply chilling out in your garden, they want you to

put your furry friend first.

Shelley Wilks, Head of Welfare for the charity said:

“It’s important to remember our dogs can’t cope as

well as we do in the summer heat. Dogs can very

quickly overheat and start showing signs of a heat

stroke. Heat stroke, if left untreated, can be fatal.

So it is really important to be aware of the signs and

symptoms and get veterinary help straight away.

“Our Dog Welfare Assistants will be ensuring our dogs

stay safe and don’t overheat this summer by walking

them while it is cooler, not over exercising them, and

doing fun things with them that use a minimal amount

of energy, such as, letting them splash around in

our paddling pools and treating them to frozen Kong

toys. These are all little things that you can also do to

ensure your pooch stays cool and healthy while the

sun is shining.”

The rescue charity has more advice on what you

can do with your dogs in the heat, as well as all of

the symptoms of heat stroke to look out for on their

website. You can see how the staff at the rescue

centres are helping to keep the dogs there safe during

this warm weather by checking out the charity’s

Facebook page and YouTube channel.

abbit care top tips

by Emily Tindall RVN FDSc


Emily Tindall, a nurse at

Scarsdale Vets, shares her

advice on how to care for your


Rabbits require large amounts of space with grazing

areas, access to outdoors and dry, well ventilated

indoor areas. The usual hutches you can get from

stores are usually not appropriate. Playhouses, sheds

or even aviaries can be converted to be much more

suitable accommodation for your bunnies. Rabbits

need to be exposed to natural light to prevent vitamin

D deficiency, so supplements or time outdoors needs

to be factored into their daily lives, especially for

house rabbits. Suitable housing is also necessary

to prevent health problems such as upper or lower

respiratory disease. Therefore avoiding small, dusty

and dirty environments is vital while ensuring there is

suitable weatherproofing.


The diet of a domestic rabbit should mainly consist of

three things:

• Hay/grass (timothy hay being the preferred type)

• Rabbit pellets

• Mixed leafy green vegetables/herbs

Hay and grass should make up the majority of the

rabbits diet (a minimum of a ball of hay the same

size as the rabbit or larger a day) but a handful of

leafy greens/herbs and a tablespoon per kg of ideal

bodyweight of pellets will lead to a well balanced diet.

Treats, vegetables and herbs can be given but must

be given in moderation and new food items should

be introduced separately – one new item per week

to allow time for any intolerances to show. Long term

changes to the rabbit’s diet should made slowly over

the time of 4-6 weeks to allow their sensitive digestive

system to adapt appropriately and reduce chances of

an upset stomach.


Rabbits are highly social animals and due to being

prey creatures, without a buddy to watch their back,

a rabbit may never fully relax. However, bonding is a

complicated procedure which can change for each

pairing – therefore patience is key. A fast bonding can

take as little as 2 weeks whereas more complicated

ones can take as long as 3-4 months or, on rare

occasions, 6 months to a year.

It is important to note that both rabbits should be

neutered before introducing to them to reduce

hormonal influence. Bonding should be started a

month after neutering to allow for enough hormones

to leave the other rabbit interested enough without

going overboard. A second cage will be needed near

the original cage alongside neutral spaces for both

rabbits to interact. Introductions should be gradual

and closely observed at all times.

Vaccinations and Health Checks

Your rabbits should be fully vaccinated every year.

There are two vaccinations available; a combination

vaccination covering Myxo (myxomatosis) and RHD1

(rabbit haemorrhagic disease) and a single dose for

RHD2 (a separate strain) – both are important and

should be given 2 weeks apart from one another. The

combination vaccination can be given from as young

as 5 weeks old whereas the single dose vaccine has

to be given from 10 weeks. These vaccines need to be

repeated yearly to ensure full coverage.

Frequent health checks with the vet will help to assess

your rabbit’s general growth and care. It is important

to monitor how much your rabbit eats, drinks and

poos to make sure you can spot any potential

problems early on. It is also a good idea to get your

rabbit used to being handled and having their paws

touched which will make health checks and nail clips

generally easier and less stressful.


Flystrike coverage is also important during the

warmer months and can be easily applied throughout

the year. Speak to your vet for when best to apply

flystrike protection.
