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 blog where I travel the world visiting people and places associated with
Doctor Who. This summer I went to Beaulieu Motor Museum in the New Forest to see a
special new addition. My last visit to Beaulieu was Quizfest in August 2017 but the following
month The Doctor’s car Bessie was introduced to the
On Screen Cars display! Bessie is a star attraction
alongside other cars from film and TV including Ron’s
Ford Anglia from Harry Potter, Mr Bean’s yellow Mini
and Del Boy’s Robin Reliant.

Bessie was the Third Doctor, Jon Pertwee’s, car and he
named her after his companion Liz Shaw. She is a 1954
Ford Popular 103E fitted with a kit by Siva to replicate
an Edwardian roadster. The Doctor needed her to get
around after he was exiled on earth by the Time Lords
and his TARDIS was deactivated. While earthbound,
the Doctor worked as a Scientific Adviser for UNIT and
Bessie was part of his compensation package.
The Doctor added lots of special features to Bessie including an Anti-Theft Force Field, a
Remote control to drive her from a distance and a Minimum Inertia Hyper Drive which let
him brake suddenly at high-speed without going through the windscreen!

The Doctor also gave Bessie his personal licence plate ‘WHO 1’.
Really, this plate was already in use, so Bessie’s actual number
plate was MTR 5. The BBC made special ‘WHO 1’ plates, and used
them on private land. They had to get permission from the police
to use them for filming on public roads. When the Seventh Doctor
drove her, her plate was updated to WHO 8 but she is on display
with her original.

Bessie’s first appearance was in Season 7 of Classic Who in ‘Doctor
Who and the Silurians’ (1970) and she featured in 15 stories. After
the Third Doctor regenerated Bessie only popped up on screen for
special occasions. Her most recent onscreen appearance was the
Eleventh Doctor episode ‘The Name of the Doctor’ (2013) when we
see his companion Clara Oswald risk her life to save the Doctor by
jumping into his time stream.
Archive footage was used to show Clara trying to attract the
attention of the Third Doctor without success.

I had a fantastic day at Beaulieu. Not only did I get to learn lots about motoring through
the ages I also enjoyed the peace of the Abbey and learning about its 800 year history.
If you would like to read about my other Doctor Who adventures please check out my blog.

Thanks for reading, goodbye!

“Caring for your feet in the winter”

As we enter the colder, winter months,
it’s extremely important to keep ourselves
warm. To do this, we normally wear extra
clothes and gloves on our hands. But, it’s also
essential we keep our feet warm. One of the
most common problems which can occur
during colder weather are chilblains. These
are small, itchy swellings on the skin which
occur as a reaction to cold temperatures. In
this article, we will provide some information
on chilblains and how to prevent them.

Chilblains usually occur several hours after exposure
to the cold as a result of blood vessels narrowing and
widening too quickly. When this happens, blood can
leak into the surrounding tissue and this is believed to be
reason for the swelling and itchiness. In extreme cases,
the skin may break and blisters may develop. It is very
important to try not to scratch the area as the skin can
easily break, leading to a possible infection.

Fortunately, chilblains are quite easy to prevent as long
as you follow these tips. The obvious thing to do to
prevent chilblains is by limiting your exposure to the
cold. You can wear thick socks or long johns to improve
the circulation to the feet and try and avoid wearing
tight shoes as they can restrict the circulation. Warming
your shoes on the radiator before wearing them allows
them to dry and eating at least one hot meal a day has a
fantastic warming effect across the whole body. Finally,
moisturising your feet every day stops your feet from
becoming dry and prevents the skin from cracking.

If you have any concerns about your feet or would like to
know more about preventing chilblains, then please do
not hesitate to give us a ring and make an appointment.

Baroness Rock Visits The Bourne Academy

The Bourne Academy is delighted to have recently welcomed House of Lords
member, Baroness Kate Rock and successful local business woman Katushka
Giltsoff as guest speakers. The pair gave inspirational talks to our business studies
students through the ‘Speakers for Schools’ forum, sharing their personal life
stories and encouraging our students to work hard and follow their passions.

Baroness Rock who sits on the House of Lords
Select Committee on Artificial Intelligence was
able to share her insights on the skills needed
for future careers. The students asked thought
provoking questions and felt reassured that the
robots would not be stealing our jobs just yet!
Kate said it was a pleasure to meet our students
and visit our inspirational school.

Katushka shared her journey working globally
as a stockbroker and now as a highly successful
headhunter. Both speakers live in Dorset and it
was a pleasure to meet them and see them inspire
our students further.

Careers Leader, Vicky Woodings, said “It was wonderful to have such passionate
guest speakers who gave up their time to share their personal stories and inspire
our students to follow their own dreams and ambitions. Katushka and Kate were
a delight and excellent role models for any girls keen to enter male dominated

Why is there a angel on top of the Christmas tree?
A long ago and not far away Santa was getting ready for his annual trip...but there were
where...more stress.
bACangOdfMethlleMtno,UtwhNheeIgnTroYhueLnbEdeTagTnaIndNtsoGcalStotaedretdhealslltehigehtooynse...osfot,hfreubsotraartdesdoSnanthtae sleigh cracked and the toy
went into the house for
a cup of coffee and a shot of whiskey...but he found that the elves had hit the liquor cupboard
and there was nothing there to drink...and in his frustration he dropped the coffee pot and it
broke into hundreds of little pieces all over the kitchen floor... he went to get the broom and
found that the snow had got in and rotted the handle which promptly broke.
Just then the doorbell rang and Santa cussed on his way to the door ..he opened the door and
there was a little angel with a great big Christmas tree. And the angel said: Santa, where would
you like to put this Christmas tree??
And that, my friend, is how the little angel came to be on top of the Christmas tree!!

Record-breaking £25,000 raised for YMCA Bournemouth by nearly 100
fundraisers in the area’s biggest ever sponsored ‘rough’ sleeping event

On the morning of Sunday 18th November, approximately
100 staff and directors from 23 local businesses and
organisations, plus individual fundraisers, woke up in
cardboard box shelters having slept overnight at YMCA
Bournemouth’s ‘BIG Sleep Easy’ at Bournemouth Sports
Club (Chapel Gate) As a result, approximately £25,000
is expected to be raised for the charity – a new record for
a YMCA Bournemouth fundraising event and more than
double the original target!
Participants awoke cold and tired but knowing that they had
made a real difference in the fight against homelessness.

Chris Palmer, Manager Director of local IT business AnyTech Solutions, who himself raised over £1600, said:
“The AstroTurf was extremely firm and my hands felt numb, so I can’t imagine what it must be like sleeping
in a doorway. But what better way is there to make a point about homelessness and raise awareness?”
The previous evening, on Saturday 17th November, fundraisers arrived at Bournemouth Sports Club at 6.45pm
to be given large cardboard boxes and tape from which they or their team had to build a shelter. They were
also presented with woolly hats and scarves: a selection of 100 created specifically for the event by Broadstone
and other local ‘Knit and Natter’ groups supported by Douche Family Funeral Directors.
Sustained by hot soup, drinks and the warming thought of a breakfast bap in the morning, they applied their
creativity to build and decorate some fantastic carboard structures, listened to a brief speech describing the
work of YMCA Bournemouth and a poem about homelessness which was written for the occasion*, before
bedding down around 10.30pm.

Local organisations taking part included solicitors Lester Aldridge,
chartered accountants PKF Francis Clark, Battens Solicitors, IT
Support Business, The WAY Group, Altogether Care, BH Living,
Grapevine telecommunications, Hemsley Financial Services, LMA
Architects, Kuehne + Nagel, A-Storage, Globacare insurance, South
Coast Payments, Newnham & Jordan solicitors, Make Studio, Calvary
Pentecostal Church, RIAS, Green Light Electrical Installations Ltd,
Lewis Investment and Marah Recruitment.

Debbie Corbin of Corbin & Co Estate Agents was the first person to sign up: “We decided we wanted to give
back to the local community and we chose a cause associated with our business. We realise that there are
people without the opportunity to have their own home so we wanted to support YMCA Bournemouth in the
work they do providing homeless people with the tools and resources to get a home for themselves.”
Managing Partner of Lester Aldridge solicitors, Matthew Barrow, was one of a team of 17 who raised over
£6000:“We were looking at community engagement because it’s something we think we should do as a
business. YMCA Bournemouth is an integral part of our community and by taking part in this event we are
helping to change the local social landscape. Homelessness is something that can happen to anyone – a single
life event and anyone could be there.”

If you would like to show your support you can still make a donation at
bigsleepeasy. If you or your business are interested in taking part in a future Sleep Easy event in either spring
or autumn next year, you can email YMCA Bournemouth on [email protected].

Travel Feature -
Cosmopolitan Cape Town... By Mags Addison

Sitting on the V &A Waterfront in Cape Town on a sunny October day,
relaxing over a meal with a glass of Pinotage (the South African red
wine I’d grown to like) - was perfect. It’s warm and pleasantly sunny
down here in the Southern Hemisphere, so I was enjoying every moment
of their spring time.
South Africa and the Garden route have long been a dream of mine to
visit, and finally it came true. After years of putting holidays together
here for my clients, this autumn I flew on a BA flight to Cape Town, via Johannesburg.
Cape Town is a large, sprawling cosmopolitan city, and overlooked by Table Mountain. Locals
call it `their mountain’ – looking over the city and protecting them. This is the new South Africa. I’m sure
as with most places in the world, inequality still exists, but the people we saw on our trip where happy and
smiling, and genuinely pleased to see us. And there seems to be a real movement towards Eco-Tourisms
here – concerns over not changing the footprint.
If you visit Cape Town, stay near the waterfront. It’s hip, busy and certainly happening here,
making it a safe place to wonder about, day and evening, along with lots of other tourists. It has a great
vibe – being full of cafes, restaurants, shops, even chains like H&M – which are known to us Brits. Live
music and buskers made the atmosphere fun. Surprisingly though, Cape Town is on the Atlantic Ocean, so
the sea is not as warm as you’d think.
We booked a two-day Hop-On-Hop-Off bus around the city and suburbs – it’s good value and
an easy way to see everything, plus we learnt about the history of the area as well. It went along Long
Street one of the oldest streets in the city – quirky and bohemian with its balconied colonial look, full of
small boutiques, bookshops and a haven for backpackers. It stopped at the base of Table Mountain with
views out over the city. We went out to Camps Bay, which I loved. This is a busy resort with a fabulous
white sandy beach. Next day the bus took us to the Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens – nestling at
the foot of Table Mountain.
There are many day trips radiating out from Cape Town, and some we did like a boat trip to
Robben island, and we drove out to Cape Point and visited Boulders Beach to see the penguins. No trip to
Cape Town is complete without going up the Ariel Cableway to the top of Table Mountains for the views.
You can also visit the wine region for the day from Cape Town.
I’d heard many comments on safety before visiting Cape Town, and South Africa generally, and
can only say from my recent experience that I never personally felt uneasy or insecure there. But – like any
other city, or foreign country, you should always take reasonable safety precautions when out and about.
South Africa has a lot going for us Brits: Great weather during our autumn and winter, good
quality food and produce, and fabulous regional wines. Plus, it’s only a 1-2 hours’ time difference, they
drive on the same side of the road, everyone speaks english, and when I went, the Pound was good value
against the Rand.

Beach holidays, City breaks, Honeymoons, Weddings abroad, Adventure holidays, Ski,
Cruise, Tailormade trips, Flight only, Car hire, Airport hotels and parking and much more...

Everywhere he went he left a little pyramid.

Brain Power

1: Emptying out her savings jar Abigail found she had a total of £15.84 but what
struck her as odd was that after sorting it out into neat little piles she realised she
had only four different coins, the largest being £1, and had exactly 12 of each coin.

What were the four differnet coins?

2: Brian is half his mother Jenny’s age. In 10 years, Brian will be three-fifths
Jenny’s age. Ten years ago, Brian was one-third Jenny’s age.
How old are Brian and Jenny now?

3: Picture an arrow fired at a target. For the arrow to
reach the target, the arrow must first travel half of the
overall distance from the bow to the target. Next, the
arrow must travel half of the remaining distance.
eg: If the starting distance was 40m, the arrow first
travels 20m, then 10m and so on. Extending this theory,
with the resulting distances getting smaller and smaller,
will the arrow ever reach the target?

4: Queing for the rollercoaster Brian was in front of Lucy. Guy was behind Lyn
and Jess. Jess was in front of Sharon and Roger. Sue was behind Guy, Simon and
Roger. Roger was in front of Sue, Simon and Mickey. Mickey was behind Simon,
Sharon and Sue. Lyn was in front of Lucy. Simon was in front of Brian, Guy and
Lyn. Lucy was in front of Sharon. Sue was in front of Brian and Mickey. Lucy was
behind Lyn, Jess and Sue. Guy was in front of Lucy. Simon was behind Jess.
How did they line up fpr the ride.

5: Three songs by Elvis Presley are written below in code,
can you work them out?


6: Replace the blanks between the following words with a word that will in each
case make a new word when added to the preceding word, and also a new word
when added to that following it.

Cultured Clothing...

Cultured Clothing is our new venture based in Moordown.
We have, for many years, traded at different events, namely
scooter rallies, with a few vintage festivals thrown in along the
way. Having established a name for ourselves, the opportunity
arose for us to open a retail outlet conveniently situated next to
K. A. Bell Scooters (Formerly Velocity Scooters) which is owned
by our very good friend Kevin Bell.

We opened in January 2018 and our range of clothing both new
and preloved reflects our love of the scootering way of life.
From tonic suits to button down shirts, harrington jackets to
sta-prest trousers, our little empire is full to the rafters. Ladies are not left out with smart
pinafore dresses, colourful skirts and a great range of new and preloved dresses from the
50’s and 60’s which lend themselves very well to the diverse scene that so many enjoy.
Our brands include Relco and Brutus with shoes and boots by Roamers and Grafters.

We are branching out into CD’s and vinyl so watch this space.
Moordown is the perfect location for us and having the scooter shop right next door is a
win-win situation for us all because customers of K.A. Bell will usually come and see what
we have to offer, and vice versa.

Come and pay us a visit. You’ll be guaranteed a warm welcome with knowledgeable staff
who will do their best to assist you.

Thought to be Bournemouth’s oldest Taxi Company,
Mobile Radio Cars are pleased to announce the
introduction of its first all electric Vehicle. Founded
in Winton in 1976 Mobile Radio Cars prides itself on
providing a reliable and friendly service. All our drivers
have good local knowledge are friendly and helpful and
have good communication skills. We have a following
of many loyal and satisfied customers some of which use
us on a daily basis. We offer a standard 10% discount on
the council dictated fares with the exception of public

Rick Lawrence started working for Mobile 18 months
ago and is now a shareholder and sits on the company
committee forming part of the Advertising Executive.
After working as an Avionics Engineer for over 30 years I have now found my perfect job. I am privileged to
an insight into peoples lives and for me the most interesting part is dealing with our customers and getting to
know all aspects of their lives.

We have just invested in a new operating system which we hope will enhance our customers experience.
The new automated system allows our customers to book their taxis at the touch of a button and keeps them
updated on their taxis progress. You can also now book your taxi via our new APP. where you can track the
progress of your car on your mobile phone. You also have the option as before to talk to one of our friendly
operators as we appreciate not everyone wants to communicate with a machine.

Rick told us he has just taken delivery of a brand new all
electric Hyundai Ionic. The future of cars is undoubtedly
electric and I felt now is the right time to invest in this new
technology. The practical range of the car is around 120-130
miles on a single charge. I can top up this charge between jobs
if necessary. If anyone is thinking of buying an electric car I
would probably recommend waiting for a year or so for the
next generation of electric cars. They will certainly have an
improved range as battery technology improves. Hyundai are
said to be bringing out a New Ionic next year which will have
a range in excess of 200 miles on a single charge.
Also worth looking at for those on a budget is the Nissan Leaf which is having a new model in 2019 with an
improved range.

I am very impressed with the Hyundai Ionic as a Taxi. It offers a smooth and comfortable ride with economic
running costs and plenty of power and is popular with our customers. With zero emissions this has to be the
way ahead.
The current government insensitive to buy electric is a grant of £3500 which has recently been cut from
£4500. No doubt this grant will disappear completely in future years as more of us go over to electric vehicles.

If our English language really ever made sense ‘lackadaisical would surely have
something to do with a shortage of flowers wouldn’t it?

A lorry carrying boxes of Roget’s Thesarus crashed spreading its load over the road.
The news reported that onlookers were ‘stunned, overwhelmed, bewildered, amazed,

gobsmacked, astonished and dumbfounded.
Why is it that we can be overwhelmed, and we can be underwhelmed but have you ever

just been whelmed?

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

December / January - Gardeners Tips

Thankfully December is a quiet month in the garden. It can be cold and very wet but there are some
positive things we can do weather permitting.
• Support any larger shrubs and tall roses as they are particularly vulnerable to wind rock. The roots
can tear and reduce the plants’ potential for next year.
• Prune any overgrowing and congested branches of freestanding Apple and Pear trees to allow fruiting
buds to develop next year.
• Ensure your greenhouse heater is working if you have one. We have included a separate electronic
thermostat which only switches the electric heater on at our pre-set temperatures.
• Harvest Parsnips, Leeks, Winter Cabbage any remaining root crops and especially those long
anticipated sprouts.
• If you did not do it in November. Dig over borders and next years’ planting areas incorporating as
much organic material as possible all of which should rot down over the coming months. The birds will
love you for it as they pick up the grubs you have unearthed.
• Do ensure any outdoor pots are raised off the ground to avoid freezing and waterlogging.
• If you have a pond or water drinker for the birds do ensure it remains frost free. If you have fish, never
hit the ice with a hammer the shock can kill the fish. Much better to place a
floating object on the surface. This can be removed from time to time to reveal
an air hole.
• During the winter the wild life can find food gathering difficult so do provide
a variety of feed locations and variety for the different species. Remember the
ground feeders as well as the perching birds. There is a definite pecking order
so space out the feeders to give them all an even chance.

The garden and lawn at home can safely be left alone in January and on into February except for tidying
up leaf debris. Keep the wildlife fed and watered. They will repay shortly by eating up the newly hatched

spiders and other gardener unfriendly grubs.
Here are some jobs that might bring a bit of colour to your cheeks and help
work off some surplus festive food.
• Pruning Gooseberries, Currents and cut Autumn Raspberries to 1”-2” from
the ground in February.
• Apply some Sulphate of Potash around the base of fruit plants.
• Winter wash your fruit trees.
• If you didn’t sow Broad Beans in early winter then for a quick start you can plant them now in pots, or
directly in the ground in February.
• Clear any plant debris from the ground and allow any frost to break up the soil and kill off the pests.
• Plan your vegetable 3 year crop rotation so as not to grow the same crop in the same place as last year.
This prevents the build-up of pests and diseases which are partial to the previous planting.
Basically do not plant Onions in the same ground each year.
• Remember not to use manure where you intend to plant Brassicas, Onions, Garlic or Carrots.

If you are becoming a keener gardener, then you might want to put your name down for an Allotment.
All members must be Bournemouth Borough Council Tax payers.

The office at North Bournemouth Allotment Society is open every Saturday & Sunday
from 10:00 until 12:00 noon. Call in and see us, have a chat about your hopes and plans.

We have a range of plot sizes to suit all ambitions.
If you would like to have a look around someone will help you.

Pupils put new SafeWise tours to the test

mouth Local charity SafeWise has joined forces with St Mary’s Primary School
in Wareham and Damory coaches to help develop new Junior Citizen tours
which are set to be rolled out to thousands of pupils from September.

St Mary’s is the last of five Dorset schools to trial and feedback on the new tours, which focus on

equipping children aged five to 11 with skills for life, at SafeWise centres in Bournemouth and Weymouth.

Year two pupils spent four hours at SafeWise Bournemouth’s indoor safety village testing out a range of

interactive scenarios based around fire, road and water safety plus healthy choices, online safety, journey

planning, first aid and more.

SafeWise Bournemouth Manager Elise St.Hill said: “I’d like to thank all the schools which have visited

to test out our new Junior Citizen programme, they have provided invaluable feedback which we will use

to fine tune the tours. “The Junior Citizen schools programme aims to provide realistic and immersive

learning experiences to equip children with the skills, knowledge and confidence to live active, fulfilling

and safer lives in the real world.

“The new tour represents a really good step forward, such as the clever voting system, real car which the

children can get into as well as other situations where they recognise danger and deal with it. “It’s a nice,

secure environment for the children to learn in and all the helpers are really down to earth, so the pupils

feel confident asking questions and are not afraid to have a go and try different things around the centre.”
