reliable reputation for quality service and competitively priced

Tyre pressure is extremely important for the safe running of your car,
yet is one of the most overlooked points of car maintenance.
Over inflated tyres are as bad as under inflated, leading to uneven wear
and increased risk of a blowout.
Your vehicle manual will advise of you the recommended pressure for
normal road use, and in many cars this information can also can be found
on a label in the driver door archway.
Failure to maintain the necessary standard of tyre pressure could
result in a Fixed Penalty Notice, but more importantly, you could be
putting yours and others lives at risk.

Contact The Elderly - Volunteer Drivers & Afternoon Hosts Required

Once a month on a Sunday afternoon local elderly people, who are without family in the area, are taken out
by volunteer car drivers for a little ride before going to the homes of volunteer hosts and hostesses for Sunday
afternoon tea.
We only ask our volunteer hosts to entertain up to six elderly people and two
drivers or one driver with up to three elderly people once or twice a year.
A downstairs cloakroom is a must.
Reserve drivers are always wanted when the regulars are unavailable.
This would be possibly two or three times a year.

Elderly people who would like to take part in one of these afternoons are
welcome to join the group but must be able to get in and out of a car, as we are
unable to take zimmers or wheelchairs. There is no charge.

Bumpy ride this morning? View blocked by dumped rubbish?

Potholes and fly tipping are just two of the street faults that can be reported via
the website along with vandalism, graffiti, dog fouling
and many other common community issues.

While most of us know that the council are responsible for fixing these things,
we may not know which council, let along which department in which council.
With FixMyStreet, all you have to do is locate the problem on a map, and select
a category: the site then sends it off to the right place to get it fixed.

All reports are published on the site, as well as being sent to the council.
Browsing your own postcode can be interesting, as you soon learn what the
persistent problems are in your area, and whether or not they are being fixed.
There’s also the opportunity to discuss individual reports in the comments

FixMyStreet comes from the UK not-for-profit organisation mySociety, and
is one of its longest-running and most-used services. It is just one of several
projects aimed at making it easier for citizens to get things changed in their
own community. So, next time you see something that needs fixing, be it a
broken paving slab or a flickering streetlight, all you need to remember is

As more than 1 in 100 people are autistic, many autistic people live in
Bournemouth. But they’re not getting the understanding they need.
Only 16% of autistic people feel the public understands them.
In particular, 77% say that people don’t understand that autistic people
can need more time to process questions or instructions.
This can make simple things like going to the shops or using public
transport extra daunting.

Encouragingly, recent research from The National Autistic Society found that 80% of the general
public would be happy to change their behaviour to give autistic people more time to process
information, if only they knew they needed it. Giving people more time, using clear language and
being more patient can make the world of difference to the lives of many autistic people.

So I’m asking people in Bournemouth to join me as part of The National Autistic Society’s Too
Much Information campaign to make these small changes to make our community more autism-

Find out about diagnosing autism (including Asperger syndrome), and the impact on people and
their families, tips for autism-friendly behaviour, plus advice and support on all aspects of life
with autism. Visit the website for all this and more ways to help:

"The Art of Digital Macro Photography"




Broadway Park Sports & Community Club
Broadway Park
Broadway Lane

31st May 2017 @ 7.30pm

Members£3 or £4 on Door - Non Members £6 or £8 on Door

This presentation show the
various skills and techniques
needed in the field of Macro
Photography and explains
the equipment used to help
get sharp images. It covers a
wide range of nature subjects
including butterflies, moths,
dragonflies and damselflies,
wild flowers, fungi, cobwebs,

frost patterns and much
more. Although digital,
the presentation also
includes a number of
natural prints.

A man out taking landscapes with his new Nikon drops it and finds it
wont work. All alone he ponders what to do and wishes he’d brought a
spare because in the field opposite, a white horse stands beautifully lit in
the morning light. A photo opportunity of a lifetime. He remembers passing

a camera repair shop and is about to set off when a voice tells him,
“Turn the camera upside down and tap the base”

He tries it and sure enough the camera is working perfectly again and he
gets his shot. On his way home he decides to stop at the camera shop just
to get it checked over and tells his story to the guy in there. The man asks
him if there was a white horse nearby to which he replies, “Yes there was”

“Aaaah” says the salesguy, “You were lucky it wasn’t the black horse, he
knows nothing about Nikons!”

1/ Not Trusting The Agent: Don’t use an agent you feel you can’t trust.
Are you comfortable with your agent? NO? Choose again.

YES? Let them get on with the job.
2/ Beware High Valuations: Overvaluation is buying your business, ask for
recent comparable evidence. Ultimately you will need to reduce your price, a negative
that buyers do notice. “What is wrong with it”? they will be asking themselves.
3/ Beware Very Low Fees: Low fees need a high turnover of sales - pushing for sales
at any price. Cheap agents, cheap service, others may be “Virtual” The fact is many
buyers prefer to deal face to face with a real Human Being.
4/ Poor negotiators can cost you a fortune: Most houses don’t need a salesman, you
need a negotiator, a skill that can substantially improve your position. Use an agent
you feel has the right attributes, can negotiate well and knows their product.
5/ The multi agency trap: Don’t mistake for multi-listing. With multi-agency, one of
two things will happen, be persuaded with the first buyer (not the best buyer) - winning
the sale, or your agent may not try too hard, they may lose the race so may not start it.
Either way it is not good for you.
6/ No “For Sale” Signs: FOR SALE boards are 24 hour sales tools.
Buyers will drive the area they want to live in, keen to find they will make a fast
decision. If they see a property they like they will follow it up.
7/ Dismissing early Buyers : The best buyers often strike early with best prices,
perhaps been waiting to secure a home like yours. The longer on the market, the less
buyers will be attracted. Genuine buyers make the first move.
8/ Ignoring Agent Feedback: This can identify problem areas that can effect a
sale, you need honest feedback. After a period of time if they say it’s too expensive it
probably is.
9/ Keep It Clean: Dull Homes get dull prices. First Impressions count, inside and out.
Make your home sparkle and your price will shine.
10/ Experience Counts : Rarely do we get asked of our knowledge of the area the
facilities available how long have we been valuing in the area, experience of staff
and so on. You are paying for our expertise and experience, you need to make
sure we have some.

Supporting people sleeping rough in
Bournemouth and Poole

Homelessness charity St Mungo’s will be supporting people sleeping rough in Bournemouth
and Poole to access accommodation and leave the streets behind as part of the Bournemouth and
Poole Rough Sleeper Team.
St Mungo’s is the new provider for the service following a retender and are being jointly funded
by Bournemouth Borough Council and Borough of Poole.

A recent annual street count of people rough sleeping carried out by council officials in
November counted 39 people in Bournemouth and 11 in Poole. Numbers have increased
reflecting a picture seen across the country over the last few years.
The Bournemouth and Poole Rough Sleeper Team will be on shift six days per week and will be
working with people to assess their options, access accommodation and support around health
and employment to help people to rebuild their lives away from homelessness.

Paul Hudson, Regional Head, St Mungo’s said: “Rough sleeping is harmful and dangerous
and ruins lives, and no one should have to sleep rough in this day and age. We’ll be working
with people to tackle the particular problems that lead to them sleeping rough and aiming to
connect them with services as needed, from housing to health services and into skills and work
“Rough sleeping is not inevitable, and we know that concerted action works. We are looking
forward to working with local partners in Bournemouth and Poole to support people as they
move away from homelessness and on with their lives.”

Councillor Robert Lawton, Cabinet Member for Housing, Bournemouth Borough Council, said:
“We are extremely pleased to have St Mungo’s on board providing the town’s rough sleeper
outreach service who will continue the good work previously delivered by CGL over the last few
years. They bring a wealth of experience and knowledge and they will play an essential part in
supporting rough sleepers off the street.”
Councillor Karen Rampton, Cabinet Portfolio Holder for Housing and Communities, Borough of
Poole, said: “One of our priorities is to support the most vulnerable members of our community,
and the service provided by St Mungo’s will help us to provide the support needed to keep rough
sleepers safe and, ultimately, help them off the streets. It’s important to address the issues which
may have led to individuals being on the streets in the first place, and to help prevent their mental
and physical health from deteriorating.”
St Mungo’s delivers rough sleeping outreach services in London, Bristol, Reading, Oxford,
Brighton, and South Essex. We provide a bed and support to more than 2,600 people a night who
are either homeless or at risk, and work to prevent homelessness.

We support men and women through more than 260 projects including emergency, hostel and
supportive housing projects, advice services, specialist physical health, mental health and skills
and work services. For more information:

1: A light-year is the distance that light travels in a year.
How many light-years are we away from the nearest star?

2: If you balanced a broom horizontally on your finger, so that your finger was
exactly on the broom’s centre of gravity, marked that spot and cut the broom in
two, then you would have a long and a short piece. The long piece being most of
the handle and the short piece being the bristle end and a small part of the handle.
Now what will happen if you weigh both pieces?

A) The short piece will weigh more.
B) The long piece will weigh more.
C) Both will weigh the same.

3: A businessman went away on a long trip. Before he left he arranged for a temp
secretary to forward all of his mail. However, he forgot to give her the key to
his mailbox. When he realised his mistake, he posted the key to his office so the
secretary could send his mail to him. However, she never did send it. The executive
got angry and phoned his office, planning to fire his secretary. However, she was
able to explain to him why she hadn’t sent his mail. He quickly realised he was in
the wrong and apologised.
What did the secretary say to make the executive realise his error?

4: You are hosting a business meeting which consists of only accountants and
lawyers. From your previous dealings with these two professions, you know that
accountants always tell the truth about everything, and lawyers always lie about
Two gentlemen, Sam and Adam, approach you. Sam introduces himself and says,
“I am a lawyer, but Adam is an accountant.”
Based on what you know from your previous dealings, what are each of the men’s
actual professions?

Four surgeons are discussing who makes the best type of patient.
The first surgeon says, “I like to see accountants on my operating table,

because when you open them up, everything inside is numbered.”
The second responds, “Yeah, but you should try electricians!
Everything inside them is colour coded.”

The third surgeon says, “No, I really think librarians are the best;
everything inside them is in alphabetical order.”

The fourth surgeon chimes in: “You know, I like builders ~ they seem to
understand when you have a few parts left over at the end and when the job

takes longer than you said it would.”

One morning a council highway repair crew reached their job-site
and realised they had forgotten all their shovels. The crew’s foreman rang
the council yard and told his supervisor of the situation. The supervisor

replied “Don’t worry, we’ll send a van out with some shovels. In the
meantime, just tell them to lean on each other until they arrive.”

May History Spotlights...

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle 22nd May 1859 - 7th July 1930

Born In Edinburgh, Arthur Ignatius Conan Doyle was a Scottish
author most noted for his stories about the detective Sherlock Holmes,
which are generally considered a major innovation in the field of crime
fiction, and for the adventures of Professor Challenger. He was a prolific
writer whose other works include science fiction stories, historical
novels, plays and romances, poetry, and non-fiction.
His father was English (of Irish descent) and sadly was a chronic
drunkard, although his Irish mother was an avid book reader, and
would spend a lot of time reading to Arthur. Her passion in telling the
stories to Arthur is probably what led him into writing himself.
Times were hard for them having little money, however when Arthur
reached his ninth birthday, the wealthier members of the Doyle family offered to pay for
his studies. He was in tears all the way to England, where for seven years he had to go to the
Jesuit preparatory boarding school, Hodder Place in Stonyhurst. Arthur loathed the bigotry
surrounding his studies and rebelled at corporal punishment, which was prevalent and
incredibly brutal in most English schools of that time. His only moments of happiness were
when he wrote to his mother, a regular habit that lasted for the rest of her life, and also when he
practiced sports, mainly cricket, at which he was very good. It was during these difficult years at
boarding school, that Arthur realised he also had a talent for storytelling. He was often found,
surrounded by a group of totally enraptured younger students, listening to the amazing stories
he would make up to amuse them. In the early 1880’s he set up a medical practice, though this
was not very successful, and he began writing. His first significant work
in 1887 was ‘A Study in Scarlet’, and featured the first appearance
of Sherlock Holmes, who was partially modelled after his former
university professor, Joseph Bell. Holmes featured in many short stories
and novels although Conan Doyle tired of him and tried to kill him
and his arch enemy Moriaty off when they apparently plunged to their
deaths together down a waterfall but public outcry forced him to bring
back Holmes, using the explanation that only Moriaty had actually
fallen and that Holmes had used the opportunity to pretend to be dead
for a while to hide from other enemies.
Conan Doyle was knighted in 1902, in thanks he believed for his paper ‘The War in South
Africa: Its Cause and Conduct’, justifying the activities of Great Britain during the Boer War.
Conan Doyle was found clutching his chest in the family garden on 7 July 1930 and died of his
heart attack, aged 71. He is buried in the church yard at Minstead in the New Forest.

The Walters were shown into the dentist’s surgery, where Shane makes
it absolutely clear that he is in a big hurry.

‘No expensive extras, Doctor’, Shane demands, ‘No gas or needles or any of
that fancy stuff. Just pull the tooth and get it over with.’

‘I wish more of my patients were as strong minded and as brave as you’
said the dentist admiringly. ‘Now, which tooth is it?’

Shane turns to his wife and says: ‘Show him your tooth, Claire.’

Patient: How much to have this tooth pulled? Dentist: £70
Patient: £70 for just a few minutes work?

Dentist: Well, I can pull it out very slowly if you like.

Expert Advice with a Friendly Face

Gales solicitors is a long established Bournemouth firm providing legal advice and
representation to the public since 1948. Over the years we have worked out of Charminster
and Winton and are currently located in Winton. We are an active part of the local
community taking part in local traders groups and events such as the Winton carnival and
the Kinson donkey derby. This year we were also proud to contribute to the Winton in
Bloom fund which helped brighten up Winton high street.

Over the years we have prided ourselves on offering a service which is both professional
and friendly. We have built up a large client base of satisfied and loyal customers. Many of
our clients have used the firm for years and in some cases we are now acting for a second
or even third generation. Whether someone is a long established customer or a brand new
client our aim is to ensure that our customers always want more.

As part of this we have maintained a broad range of services with experts in several
specialisms. This means that we are able to provide most of our clients with a complete
service under one roof. This ensures that we are aware of the wider circumstances of the
case and can pick up issues which might otherwise be missed. It can also help keep the cost

We know that the legal world is changing and as part of that we have introduced new case
management software to improve our service for people moving house. However, we also
know that our clients want a personal service from an experienced professional. For this
reason we continue to ensure that every case is managed by one key person so that you
know who is handling your case rather than having to speak to an anonymous assistant in a
large team.

We also know what it is like to be fobbed off with jargon and we pride ourselves on giving
advice in straightforward English. Whether verbally or in writing we like to keep it clear
and simple.

Whether you have a simple problem or a complex case we can help. If you are looking for
representation in lengthy court proceedings, for help in making a will or house purchase or
just quick advice on your legal rights while you consider what to do we can help.

Give us a call to see how we can help solve your legal puzzles.

Rugby 7s tournament. From humble beginnings, B7s has grown at
an exponential rate and is looking forward to welcoming 30,000
people and a total of 400 rugby, netball, hockey and dodgeball teams
to the 2017 Festival.

Bournemouth 7s have seen an unprecedented level of interest for the 2017
Festival as the 10th Anniversary celebrations promise to result in the biggest
and best B7s weekend yet! Alongside the smorgasbord of sport, B7s will have
an array of dance tents, arenas, bars, cocktail gardens and entertainment stalls;
making sure that attendees are never short of things to do over the weekend.

The festival has broken all sorts of internal records, selling out sports cup
spaces and general attendance tickets at a faster rate than ever before! So if you
are thinking about experiencing the party of the year then visit and get your

tickets now! If you’re really looking for a treat, get you
and your friends some V.VIP Tickets for the weekend and
experience the Festival in true style.

Everyone involved with Bournemouth 7s is bursting with
excitement for the upcoming 2017 Festival. The team is
confident that all Festival attendees will have a wonderful
weekend and they can’t wait to celebrate the 10th
Anniversary with every last one of them!

A blind man enters a bar and find his way to a barstool. After
ordering a drink, and sitting there for a while, the blind guy yells to
the bartender, “Hey, you wanna hear a joke about Welsh Rugby?” The
bar immediately becomes absolutely quiet. In a deep Welsh accent
a voice next to him says, “Before you tell that joke, you should know
something. The bartender is Welsh, the cellarman is Welsh and I’m a
6ft, 220 pound Welsh scrumhalf. What’s more, the fella sitting next to
me is Welsh and he’s an ex-miner and the guy to your right is Welsh
and a pro wrestler. Think about it seriously, mister. You still wanna
tell that Welsh Rugby joke?” The blind guy thinks for a minute then

says, “Nah, not if I’m gonna have to explain it five times.”

Project Indigo

One boy’s adventure through time and space!

Hi, I’m Tom, a local Doctor Who blogger & I write about my adventures online at

Project Indigo is my special blog where I travel the world (mainly
the UK!) visiting places associated with Doctor Who.
This month we are visiting a special ship in Charlestown in
Cornwall, filming location for the 2011 Doctor Who episode ‘The
Curse of the Black Spot’. In this episode the Eleventh Doctor, Amy
and Rory are aboard a ship called The Fancy in 1699. The pirate
crew believe they are being attacked by a Siren and that the curse
of the black spot is upon them!

In real life The Fancy is actually a tall ship called The Phoenix of
Dell Quay and she is moored in Charlestown. She was built in 1929
in Denmark and her first job was to carry people around the world
to spread the word about Christian beliefs. After 20 years she became a cargo ship until
one day there was a fire which damaged her engine room. Like the Doctor, The Phoenix
has had many regenerations - her first life was as a schooner, then she regenerated into a
Brigantine, then a Caravel and finally the two-masted brig that she is today.

The Phoenix is a famous film and TV star and has starred in many other things besides
Doctor Who. She played the Santa Maria in 1492 Conquest of Paradise which told the story
of Christopher Columbus. So technically she discovered America! She has also appeared in
Hornblower, The Scarlet Pimpernel, The TV Series The Voyage of the Dawn Treader and In
the Heart of the Sea starring Chris Hemsworth.
Charlestown is also a filming location for many shows - most famously Poldark starring
Aiden Turner. Charlestown is a port that has remained true to its original Georgian style. It
was built in the 1790s by entrepreneur Charles Rashleigh to import coal and export copper
because of the growing mining industry in the area. Soon china clay was being exported
too and still is to this day. The China Clay industry around St Austell progressed massively

and by the 19th Century over 65,000 tonnes of China Clay
were exported from Cornwall every year!
Charlestown remains near enough unspoilt, still a working
harbour, and around thirty china clay ships still dock there
every year. It really does feel like you have travelled there in
a TARDIS as it has not changed - and hopefully it never will.

Thank you for reading and if you would like to read about
other Doctor Who locations I have visited please check out
my blog. Goodbye!

Aliens finally visit earth. Obviously all of the heads of government and religious leaders
want to speak to the aliens so they set up a meeting with our new visitors. When it’s the
Pope’s turn, he asks: “Do you know about our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ?” “You mean J.C?”,
responds the alien. “yeah we know him, he’s the greatest isn’t he? He swings by every year
to make sure that we are doing ok”. Surprised, the Pope says “He visits every year?! It’s been
over 2 millenia and we’re still waiting for his return!” The alien sees that the Pope is agitated
at this fact and starts trying to rationalise. “Maybe he likes our chocolate better than yours?”
The Pope retorts “Chocolates? What are you talking about? What does that have to do with
anything?” The alien says “Well, when he first visited our planet we gave him a huge box of

chocolates. Why? What did you guys do?”

“Comfortable Feet”

It’s important that our feet are comfortable whether
we are working or going for a leisurely walk. Insoles
are an excellent way to achieve comfortable feet.
Insoles are beneficial for a few simple reasons:

1. They provide cushioning and support
2. They are an efficient way of relieving foot pain
3. Improved performance during athletic activities

Here is a quick guide explaining these points in more detail.
Our insoles are individually molded to your feet so they provide the support and cushioning
needs for your feet. With this support, your feet will fatigue less easily, meaning you can enjoy
your activities throughout the day.
There are three primary foot types which affects our bodies way of absorbing impact:
overpronation, excessive supination and neutral. Overpronation occurs when the foot rolls
inwardly excessively and excessive supination is the opposite when the foot rolls to the outside.
Neutral is when weight is distributed evenly across the foot. Whatever your foot type though,
our insoles can properly support your arches into the neutral position in order to maintain a
balanced state and a healthy foot function.

Another common problem which insoles can help is plantar
fasciitis. Common symptoms of this condition is pain in the heel
and is most often felt during the first few steps of the day and
after rest. Our insoles can help reduce the strain on the plantar
fascia muscle, allowing the muscle to time it needs to heal.

Bunions can also be helped with insoles by repositioning the
foot to reduce pressure on the bunion area. This is achieved by
supporting the transverse arch which runs across the middle
of the foot from the outside to the inside. This arch provides
flexibility and support for the foot.

Finally, your sporting activities can be improved by using insoles. Sports injuries can occur
due to the repetitive and sudden movements in the feet. The most common injuries occur in
the ligaments and are related to the overuse and structural misalignment of the foot.
This can be prevented by ensuring your feet are kept in the neutral position while still
delivering dynamic flex for the arches. This support also improves energy transfer and reduces
wasted motion.

There is no beating the taste of truly fresh
fruit and veg especially, when it’s yours!

Gardening Tips for May

Marvellous May! One the most exciting and busy months of the gardening calendar.
If you have been growing Asparagus, you only have about 5 to 6 weeks
left to harvest the best delicious shoots from your crop.
Potatoes will need earthing up to protect the stems, help prevent the
tubers from becoming green and poisonous whilst assisting
further tuber growth.
Create some protection for your Brassicas, Carrots and Fruit Bushes.
Cover seed beds with fleece to keep the soil warmer in readiness for sowing.
In the greenhouse you should give good ventilation on warm days to limit the amount of airborne
moisture and reduce the risk of seedlings ‘Damping Off’. My wife uses only tap water for seeds and
seedlings rather than rain water and this seems to work in reducing the damage caused by damping off.
Now is a good time to place your Grow Bags in the greenhouse to warm up in readiness for planting,
Tomatoes, Peppers, Aubergines, Chillies, Melons and Cucumbers.
There is no truth in the fear of Bitterness or Cross Pollination in the growing Melons and Cucumbers
together. Give it a go if you want to.
Soft fruit such as Raspberries and Gooseberries may require thinning out to avoid overcrowding and
assist in a more juicy harvest. Any Strawberry runners required for raising new plans later should have
the flower buds removed to make them stronger.
Do try to collect rainwater for those occasions when we do have a dry spell.
Keep the lawn mowed weekly. Trim the edges to create a gully and prevent the grass from creeping into
your borders.

Gardening Tips for June

June, my favourite month of the year. Long days and warm evenings
(hopefully). The 21st. is the longest day, all the warmth and sunshine has
helped the weeds seemingly do better than the plants you are so carefully
cultivating. It is best you get rid of them regularly by hoeing but if you
have missed them then here is what to do. The difficult ones are the
perennials, Dandelions, Thistles, Nettles & Bindweed. These must be dug
out with a fork removing the whole root. Take extra care with Bindweed
roots as if you leave a small section it will always grow into 2 weeds.
Annual weeds such as bitter Cress Speedwell, Chick Weed can all be
removed by regular hoeing, especially on a dry day.
Other jobs could include preparing Hanging Baskets, feeding Roses (use
Toprose or similar) to keep them healthy and sustain their perfume. Keep the
lawn cut regularly but not too short in dry weather. You can apply a selective
weed killer and feed on the lawn to keep it looking good.

Pests and grubs are manifold at this time of year so expect to see some attacks
on your fruit trees and bushes, spray or remove if you can, remembering some
pesticides leave a residue so do not eat the fruit soon after and always rinse
before eating. If you are picking Strawberries, give them a feed to keep the
fruit coming and keep covered with a net to avoid bird theft.
