Bournemouth and District Concert Band

Should you want some oomph in your life, you could do worse than attend a performance of the
Bournemouth and District Concert Band. Their autumn concert took place on Saturday 12th
October at St Thomas’s Church, Ensbury Park, Bournemouth.

The fifty-strong ensemble of brass, woodwind and percussion performed a selection of pieces
which were drawn from across four centuries. J S Bach’s Toccata, albeit a brassy, beat-dominated
arrangement, delivered a finale to a programme which began with a powerful theme from a modern
popular video game, Civilisation vi. A foot-tapping selection from the Beatles contrasted with a gentle
traditional Welsh folk tune. Saxophone, flute and clarinet solos stood out from the full ensemble.

Despite the wet weather a sizeable audience of a hundred plus filled the church and was
most appreciative. Many could clap-along in time to the music. The evening was, after all, a return
invitation, courtesy of the hospitable Rev Simon Evans and his team of refreshment providers. But
was there a thematic hint of irreverent forthcoming Hallowe’en with references to the Underworld,
Ghosts, Beasts and Phantoms?

Sixteen items created a whirlwind of moods and emotions. Powerful, stirring, vigorous, jaunty,
bouncy numbers contrasted with plaintive, mournful, reflective compositions. A kaleidoscope of
images occupied the brain. One minute you were in the warmth of a Parisian nightclub experiencing
the lacy vivacity of the cancan. The next you were transported to a bleak Scottish mountain gathering
flowers in memory of a deceased child. If that wasn’t sufficient you were suddenly plunged beneath
the waves to hear a submarine’s echo sounders or the throb of a ship’s piston engines.

Dramatic effects added to the atmosphere. A young actor prefaced ‘Phantom of the Opera’ and
a female member produced a primeval scream at the right moment. Hearing, later, several of the
players sing ‘Eternal Father’ was particularly poignant.

Founded thirty years ago as a school and community band, the group has evolved into an
almost semi-professional band under their new, inspirational conductor, Simon Nicholls, who has
brought extra polish and more subtle nuances to the musicianship.

During its life-time, the BDCB has played many venues,
indoors and out, ranging from large concert halls to sectional group busking
for charity in shopping malls. They’ve also raised and rattled the roofs of
countless churches, schools, bandstands and parish halls.

So, next time, you want musical diversity or excitement, be it
one of the perkier classics, a favourite film theme, a West End show-stopper,
or a plentiful helping of Abba, tune in to the
BDCB’s website to
find details of their future appearances. New players are always welcome.

I asked my friend if he’d bought his wife a gift for Valentine’s Day.
He’s a bit of a chauvinist pig so he surprised me when he replied, “Yeah, I’ve got
her a belt and a bag.”I said, “That’s very thoughtful of you. I hope she appreciates
it.”He said, “So do I. And hopefully the vacuum cleaner will work much better.”

a common term, used all over the world,
for treatment by a foot health professional.

The team at AH Parfitt Chiropodry are registered with the Health Care
Professions Council and are members of the Society of Chiropodists and
Podiatrists, with extended scope of practice for ‘Foot Mobilisation’ and local

qualified chiropodist, these include: Aching and/or tired feet, Musckuloskeletal
problems, Biomechanical abnormalities of the foot and ankle, Flat feet and
fallen arches, Skin conditions, Corns and Callus, Verrucae and warts, Fungal

Common Problems

Athletes Foot - Verrucaes - Heel Pain - Corns and Calluses - Bunions
Ingowing Toenails - Plantar Fasciitis - Diabetic Foot Conditions

Academy Students Read 2 Million Words

The Bourne Academy has launched a brand-new tutor time reading
programme. Based on research by Doug Lemov and the Greenshaw
Learning Trust, the decision was taken to introduce this fantastic
initiative at the Academy.

The pilot for the programme was introduced in September, led by
Portland House tutors, who have been reading aloud to their tutees for
15 minutes, three times a week. Students listened to the stories whilst
carefully following the text with their reading rulers, which double as
book marks.

The remaining Academy houses will be
joining this programme throughout January,
by which time, all students from Years 7 to 10
will be spending 45 minutes reading together
each week. The books will be read by houses
and swapped on a rotation basis.

The purposes of this programme are to expand student vocabulary,
develop a life-long love of reading, support curriculum development and
explore how literature has evolved in line with social and political change.

The texts chosen for this programme all offer a high value of ‘cultural
capital’; Animal Farm by George Orwell, A Christmas Carol by Charles
Dickens, Face by Benjamin Zephaniah and a collection of Short Stories
by authors including Graham Greene, Chaucer and D H Lawrence.
Cultural capital is described by the government as literature that is the
very best work of British authors across the generations. By the time
students have read the 24 selected texts, they will have read over 2 million

Assistant Principal of Teaching & Learning, Rachel Bennett says ‘We are
delighted with the success of the reading programme to date. Students feel
very proud that they have now read classic texts by such brilliant writers
as George Orwell and Charles Dickens. Students have also expressed
how proud they feel of their tutors for stepping outside their own comfort
zone by reading aloud to their tutees. The reading programme will ensure
that our students experience over 5000 minutes of quality literature every
school year, how amazing is that!’

A group of Slimming World Consultants from Bournemouth
celebrated their groups’ successes by meeting chat show host

e sliSmlimtfwhitomharit l eandcomedian,AlanCarr.
ng WorldAlan, a well-loved TV personality, co-hosted the annual
Slimming World Awards with the organisation’s founder and chair Margaret Miles-Bramwell OBE. Margaret opened her
Slimmingfirst group in 1969 and over the last 50 years Slimming World has become the nation’s favourite way to lose weight*,
supporting almost one million slimmers.
World f eeling!The team, who run Slimming World groups in Bournemouth, were delighted to get a chance to meetAlan. Barbara
Edwards said it was the perfect end to a fantastic year for the Bournemouth Slimming World groups. “The members at our
group make me burst with pride, not only have they seen big changes on the scales, many have improved their health and
completely changed their lives too.

“For many people, taking that first step into a Slimming World group takes a huge amount of courage. But they’re always
certain of a warm welcome and introduction to our fabulously flexible eating plan which means you’re never hungry while
you’re losing weight. And when you join a group and stay each week members support each other with motivation, tips
and ideas, cheering each other on and boosting each other to face any challenges.

“Watching people grow in confidence each week and take on things that they didn’t think possible before losing weight
absolutely amazes me. I feel proud of the small part I play in supporting people to achieve their dreams and to celebrate
alongside them when they do, so we were honoured to represent the Bournemouth groups at the Slimming World Awards.
Alan was left in awe of the difference Slimming World makes to people’s lives too.”

Alan, who presented comedy chat show Chatty Man on Channel 4, said it was great to be invited to the event, which was
held at Birmingham’s International Convention Centre. He said: “I met so many people who had transformed their lives
and it was clear how much the support they received from their ‘Slimming World family’ meant to them. Every one of them
spoke passionately about how they couldn’t have made those changes to eat more healthily and become more active
without the support of their Consultants and group every week. I left the awards feeling so uplifted and positive, I wish I
could’ve bottled that Slimming World feeling.

Sadie Kerslake-Smith continues: “Last year was our 50th year, which was full of celebrations and successes.
We’ve supported more people than ever to achieve their dreams and we’re so excited about what 2020 has in store.”

“For anyone who may be thinking of taking that step to lose weight and improve their health this New Year I truly believe
that joining a local Slimming World group is the best way for people to learn new habits and make long-term healthy
changes. At the Bournemouth groups they’ll discover a whole world of support to help them achieve their dreams and stay
slim for life – with lots of fun along the way too!”

To find out how you could get that Slimming World feeling call 0344 897 8000 or visit to find your nearest group.

The Hampton Trust is based in Southampton, Hampshire, and seeks to enable people
to live free from violence, abuse, isolation and exploitation. It achieves its aims by
running programmes for individuals, families, children and young people and training
for professionals. The charity works in partnership with statutory and voluntary sector
organisations to develop needs led services and identify gaps in provision.

RESPECT and ISO 9001 accredited, The Hampton Trust’s programmes are
preventative, educational and therapeutic.

White Ribbon Day (25th November) and the 16 Days of Action that follow, is an
annual event to help raise awareness of domestic abuse against women. The wearing
of the White Ribbon stands for never taking part in, condoning or staying silent about
violence against women. The Hampton Trust, a Hampshire based domestic abuse
charity, who work to rehabilitate perpetrators of abuse, travelled as far South as
Cyprus to the most Northern points in Scotland, asking authorities and members of the
public to pledge to stand against domestic abuse.

One of the key activities the trust accomplished during the 16 Days of Action, was
the signing of the White Ribbon Day Pledge Poster. The trust obtained hundreds of
signatures including, The Bishop of Winchester, Tim Dakin, the players of Aldershot
FC, Basingstoke hospital nurses and doctors, and The Military of Defence
encouraged police officers to sign too. The Hampton Trust’s pledge represents the
vital steps forward and making those all-important first steps in encouraging people to

recognise abuse and to stand against it.

As well as obtaining pledges, The Hampton Trust also arranged a variety of helpful
and informative events across the country, with one of the first on their busy schedule
being at MKG Southampton, a martial arts centre.
On Saturday 9th November, The Hampton Trust collaborated with the centre to host a
self-defence class for local women and teenagers.

in particular visit the sites below.

Your group could have a theme: 60s music, Classical, Jazz, Opera etc. depending on your interest.
Other Groups could be for poetry, reading or writing etc. What about that Monopoly, Scrabble or other Board Game
that has been hiding in your cupboard for the last few years? I am sure we have members who would love to share a

Independent Estate Agents & Valuers

Is print advertising for estate agents dead and buried?

The printing industry is in the midst of a decline as digital products and services
displace printed materials, which is why there has been an increase in the number of
firms, including estate agents, diverting a greater proportion of their marketing budgets
from traditional print media to online publications.

The change in the way consumers behave and now consume content is reflected by
the fact that more than 95% of property searches now start online - contributing
significantly to the huge success achieved by the major property portals, such as
Rightmove and OnTheMarket, and explains why most estate agents now receive the
bulk of their sales leads online.

But while the traditional printing market has continued to decline, reports of the ‘death
of print’ have been greatly exaggerated.
Research shows that although a growing number of consumers are abandoning print
newspapers for tablet editions and reading on their smartphones, reflecting the change
in the way people communicate with one another, the fact is that many people do still
prefer to consume content via print, rather than screen or device.

A survey of over 10,700 consumers was commissioned by Two Sides and carried out
by leading research company Toluna, revealing a strong preference for print when it
comes to recreational reading, including books, magazines and news.

Some 78% of people in the UK prefer to read content in print, such as a magazine,
while 72% of respondents believe reading a printed book is more enjoyable than
reading a book on an electronic device.

The study also found that 78% of Britons do not pay attention to most online adverts,
suggesting that print ads make a better impression than digital ones. It is important that
an estate agent is able to regularly get its brand in front of local consumer’s eyes, and
there are many ways in which print can offer competitive advantages over electronic
mail. Printed materials have a much longer shelf life than anything that’s on screen,
so consumers are constantly reminded and can refer back to a brochure or a magazine
time and time again with ease... which is why we are are here and you are reading this!

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.

For my most recent Doctor Who adventure I didn’t have to take
my TARDIS far - just to The Shelley Theatre in Boscombe. I went
to see the show ‘Only Fools and Boycie - An Intimate Evening with
John Challis’ to hear John tell stories about his career.
He is best known as Boycie from Only Fools and Horses but
Whovians know him as Scorby from the Fourth Doctor story
‘The Seeds of Doom’ (1976). John has fond memories of filming
the show just down the road at Athelhampton House in Dorset.
Behind the scenes he and the actors would do impressions and
Tom Baker asks John to do his Jimmy Stewart whenever he sees
him. Despite playing a villain John would love to play the Doctor
and has written to the BBC to ask if he can have a go.

My favourite anecdote was when he spoke about performing Twelfth Night on-stage - during the
1966 World Cup Final! Throughout the performance the actors were secretly watching the match on
a TV under the stage. Just before the last scene someone whispered in John’s ear ‘they’ve levelled’
and the whole stage changed atmosphere.
The Shelley Theatre has its own special link to The Doctor. The building is part of Boscombe Manor
and was built for Mary Shelley, the author of Frankenstein, based on her home in Italy. Sadly she
died before it was completed and it was inhabited by her son Percy Florence Shelley. The theatre
was originally opened in 1870.

The Shelleys’ link to Doctor Who is that Mary Shelley was a companion of the Eighth Doctor!
All their adventures took place off screen but you can listen to them as audio plays, with Paul
McGann playing the Eighth Doctor and Julie Cox playing Mary. Mary met the Doctor in Switzerland

in 1816 and saw him come back from the dead. This inspired
her to write Frankenstein! After that she travelled through time
and space with the Doctor, where she encountered Cybermen,
travelled to the 21st Century and even witnessed the Battle of
Hastings. It is also rumoured that the Doctor will meet Mary
again very soon in the new TV series.
John was privileged to perform at The Shelley Theatre and I
found the evening very enjoyable and insightful. If you would
like to see his show for yourself, John will performing at The
Barrington Theatre in Ferndown on May 30th. Thanks for
reading and I wish you a Happy 2020, goodbye!

If you would like to read about my other Doctor Who adventures please check out my blog.
Thanks for reading, goodbye!

Tom Project Indigo --

I’ve just booked a table for me and my girlfriend on Valentine’s Day.
I hope she knows how to play snooker.

My girlfriend told me she hoped I had something special planned for
Valentine’s Day.

I said, “I’m working on it.” and she smiled.
Which was odd, I thought she’d be upset that I’m having to work then.

10th Anniversary

2020 sees us celebrating the 10th Anniversary of St Luke’s Scout Group.
What a challenging but amazingly fun decade it has been!

We ran a competition to design a 10th anniversary badge to be worn on our
uniforms for the year. Each Beaver, Cub and Scout had the opportunity to
enter a design. There were so many fabulous designs that in the end we took
inspiration from four to create the final badge. Well done to Harvey
(Beavers), Aida (Cubs), Zi (Scouts) and Ella (Scouts).

We have several events in the pipeline to celebrate, which will be happening
throughout the year, keep an eye out for further details.

Scout Troop Cooking Competition

At the end of November the Scout Troop had two teams participating in the District Cooking
Competition, with the Workshop team gaining second place, and the Competition team winning it!

Brydie and Alex came second in the Competition Workshop, where the Scout teams compete under
central direction. There should have been four in this team but unfortunately the other two couldn't be
there because of illness, yet Brydie and Alex still aced it!

The Competition team comprised Claudia, Hal, Lilly, and Ella, who beat some stiff competition with
their three course dinner reflecting "Olympics; Past, Present, & Future". They will now compete in the
County competition on Saturday 1st February.

Our congratulations go out to the Scouts who took part: you did yourselves great credit and we're
proud of you!!!

Facebook page

If you would like to keep up to date with what we’ve been up to and upcoming events please do like
our new Facebook page ‘24th Bournemouth Scout Group’.

Beaver help

We’d love for you to join in the fun and become part of our Scouts family. You can get stuck in and
make a difference by joining us at one of our weekly sessions to support our Beaver Colony. These
are the youngest members of Scouting aged 6-8 years. They meet on Tuesdays between 4.30 and
5.30pm in St Luke’s Church Hall. Don't worry, you won't be bored and you won't be stuck in the
kitchen making the squash (unless you want to be!). We'll make sure you have plenty to do and will
share the plan for evening with you beforehand. All adults are welcome to help as long as they are
over 18. Without support, sometimes we can't run a weekly session so if you have any skills you
could offer please get in touch!

The play introduces the inept and bungling Inspector Pratt, who
battles against the odds and his own incompetence to solve the
murder of the house’s owner. It soon becomes clear that the murderer
isn’t finished yet; will the miscreant be unmasked before everyone
else has met their doom or will the audience die laughing first?

Brain Power

1: IF.. 12x12 = 9 and 23x23=16 then 34x34= ???

2: In a game of Tug-o’-War, Oliver and John easily won over Thomas and Jacob. When
Oliver and Thomas were a team, they could barely pull Jacob and John. When Oliver and
Jacob played in a team against Thomas and John, the game ended in a draw. Can you name
each person from strongest to weakest?

3: You measure my life in hours and I serve you by expiring. I’m quick when I’m thin and
slow when I’m fat. The wind is my enemy. What am I ?

4: I have cities, but no houses. I have mountains, but no trees. I have water, but no fish.

What am I?

5: You are on your way to visit your Grandma, who lives at the end of the valley. It’s her
birthday, and you want to give her the cakes you’ve made.

Between your house and her house, you have to cross 7 bridges, and as it goes in the land of
make-believe, there is a troll under every bridge! Each troll, quite rightly, insists that you
pay a troll toll. Before you can cross their bridge, you have to give them half of the cakes you
are carrying, but as they are kind trolls, they each give you back a single cake.

How many cakes do you have to leave home with to make sure that you arrive at Grandma’s
with exactly 2 cakes?

6: A man is sitting in a pub feeling rather poor. He sees the man next to him pull a wad of
£50 notes out of his wallet.
He turns to the rich man and says to him,
“I have an amazing talent; I know almost every song that has ever existed.”
The rich man laughs.
The poor man says, “I am willing to bet you all the money you have in your wallet that I can
sing a genuine song with a lady’s name of your choice in it.”
The rich man laughs again and says, “OK, how about my daughter’s name, Joanna
The rich man goes home poor. The poor man goes home rich.

What song did he sing?

7: How can you add eight 8’s to get the number 1,000? (You can only use addition)

Answers on page 44

I told my girlfriend she was drawing her makeup eyebrows too high.
She looked surprised.

Never laugh at your girlfriend’s choices. You’re one of them.

In Summer 2020 I will be travelling to Ecuador with a group of
children from Glenmoor and Winton Academies. Whilst there I
will be volunteering within the local community with projects like;
building reliable water systems and toilet systems that will help
tackle the poor sanitation and lack of water. Building a community
and children’s centre and helping out in the communities organic
and ethnobotanical* garden and tree nursery. (*focus on region’s
plants and their traditional and practical, often medicinal uses)

This amazing opportunity costs £4500, so far I have raised
£2945 through friends, family, selling sites, birthday and
Christmas pennies, a weekly tuck shop at Guides, attending
school fayres, car boots and a ‘Race for Ecuador event’
supported by friends, family and a number of local business
sponsors; Connects Scaffolding, Binnies Café, Soutars Fine
Meats, ALC Jobs, Dolphin Brewery and Oakmedians RFC. At
school we are organising a mufti day, a tuck shop and a stall for
our Christmas Fayre and as a family we are thinking of an event
to host in the New Year.

For me, taking part in the Duke of Edinburgh program, allowed me to realize the impact
that individuals like myself can have on local communities and further afield which in turn
has inspired me to participate in this expedition. I am excited to immerse myself and learn
from a new culture and country. I am passionate about making sure future generations
can enjoy the beautiful places the world has to offer so being given the opportunity to
replant hundreds of trees back into the lungs of the Earth, the Amazon rainforest is truly
remarkable. I also strongly believe all children should have access to education and by
helping to build a community school for one of the most deprived areas of Ecuador I am
humbled to be helping provide opportunities for their children’s futures.

This expedition is also extremely important to me because I feel it will develop me as a
person. I am 100% positive this expedition will build my confidence in all areas. I have a
desire to make friendships with people from all over the world and from many different

walks of life. I also want to improve my knowledge and
understanding of the human impact on our planet and see
what changes we can all make to reduce this. I think this
expedition will provide me with an incredible opportunity
to meet and talk to the local people about their culture and
gain knowledge of the challenges they face day to day.

Thank you for taking the time to read about my reasons
behind wanting to take this trip and the efforts I am making
to fundraise for it.

If you would like to sponsor me or donate to my fundraising I would be very grateful.

A woman goes to the doctor and tells him her husband is losing
interest in sex. So the doctor gives her a pill, but warns her that it’s still
experimental. He says she should slip it into his food at dinner, so that night,
she does just that. About a week later, she goes back to the doctor for
her follow-up appointment. She says, “Doc, that pill you gave me worked
great! I hid it in his food just like you said! It wasn’t five minutes later that
he jumped up, pushed all the food and dishes onto the floor, grabbed me,

ripped all my clothes off, and ravaged me right there on the table!”
The doctor, a little taken aback, says, “I’m sorry, we didn’t realise the pill

was that strong! The foundation will be glad to pay for any damages.”
The woman says, “Nah, that’s okay. We’re never going back to that
restaurant anyway.”

Travel Feature -

Pura Vida – Costa Rica
By Mags Addison

Back in November, during a trip a Costa Rica, I stood alone on the
deserted beach at 7am one morning, listening to the silence, and
drinking in the beauty of this beautiful tropical paradise. Apart from
the waves crashing on the shore, it was blissfully peaceful.

Large palm trees fringed the shoreline behind me, and birds flitted
around. We were based in a house just yards away for a few days
on the Pacific coastline, and helping with the turtle conservation,
and this white sandy beach was popular at this time of year for the
Olive Ridley Sea Turtles who came to lay their eggs. We viewed both hatchings and helped with the night
patrols. And that was pretty awe inspiring.

Costa Rica is the latest `to go to’ place for a holiday. Tucked away in central America, with direct BA
flights from London Gatwick to San Jose it’s capital, this lush, green and rugged Central American country
is awash with beaches, rainforests, volcanos, and has coastlines on both the Caribbean Sea and Pacific
The wildlife here is incredible, and we saw amongst many others; turtles, sloths, dolphins, toucans, monkeys,
humming birds, brightly coloured parrots, iguanas, and even crocodiles on a river bed. Such a feast, and a
constant treasure trove for any wildlife enthusiast and photographer. The sounds, sights, and scenery are
all breath-taking. And touring around, the hospitality we were given was genuine, and so warm.
The favourite saying here is Pura Veda - which means pure life, or simple life. In Costa Rica this
translates to - a way of life, which highlights the relaxed laid-back attitude to their lifestyle. It’s a way of
life, that makes for a perfect holiday.

You can take part in many tours from cloud forest to volcanos and rainforest to the coastline and beaches.
With lovely towns, and resorts to pass through. On our trip we went from the Pacific to Monteverde, and
the Rainforest. For adventure enthusiasts they have the zip wiring over the forest canopy here. We moved
onto La Fortuna and the depth of the Rainforest and volcanic hot springs. And came back down to the
coastline surrounding the National Park at Manual Antonio, before heading back to San Jose and our
flight home.

It doesn’t matter if you are an adventure thrill seeker, a wildlife enthusiast,
an eco-warrior, or a beach bum, Costa Rica’s natural diversity seems to
have a lot going for it. My memories of Costa Rica apart from the wildlife
and scenery will be the beautiful sunsets, the sheer vibrant colours of them.
Also, the friendliness and hospitality of the people, and their passion for
conservation. It’s a beautiful country and one I’d recommend visiting.

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

So in January we were preparing and now in February we must get going. But do remember gardening
is supposed to be a recreational activity. You will be no good for the garden or yourself if you go
headlong in without warming up your muscles a bit before you start. So do some walking up and down,
swinging your arms and a few bends. Wrap up warm. You can always take a layer off if you get too hot.
• Prepare your seed bed and sow some vegetables under cover.
• If you have some ground cover material and you want to warm up a piece of ground prior to sowing.
Do it now but be sure to peg it down to prevent it blowing away.
• Start chitting your seed potatoes.
• Well if you have not sown your Broad Beans by now, you must.
• If you have some plastic sheeting/ netting you can protect, Nectarines, Apricot and Peach blossom
from the hungry birds.
• If you had any winter flowering shrubs, now is the time to prune them back.
• On the subject of Pruning, you should also have a go at the following: Wisteria, Bougainvillea (if you
are lucky enough to have one), hardy evergreen or overgrown hedges before the birds start nesting.
If you don’t do it now you might well have to wait until May when all
the chicks have flown the nest.
• If you want your Snowdrops to spread more quickly now is the time
to split them. You can also plant new bulbs in the lawn if you wish.
• If you have and ornamental deciduous grasses you should give them
a good haircut. With gloves on to avoid cutting yourself pull your
fingers through the plant to remove any dead bits.

If you like gardening and are interested in joining a friendly group of Allotmenteers? Come to North
Bournemouth Allotment Society in Cornelia Road, Wallisdown. The site is open every Saturday and
Sunday morning 10.00 to 12.00 throughout the year, when Teas, Coffee, Savouries and cakes are available.

We have a really good social activity programme should you want to take part.

March 2020, Winter is receding and Spring is virtually upon us. It is still a long time until Easter so
keep wrapped up and ignore any warm days we might get.
Last year we bought ourselves a book published by DK called ‘Allotment Month by Month’ it can be
bought on the internet for £6.99 and is just so useful.
Meanwhile here are some other jobs you can be getting on with this month.
• If you covered up your Rhubarb like I explained in January, you should be able now to harvest young,
pink, sweet Rhubarb. If you cook it like a compote it is Soooo Gooood on your breakfast cereals.
• If you still like Brussel Sprouts you might just find a few to enjoy now, especially with some Roast
• You can still be pulling Parsnips and making tasty Celeriac with mash Potatoes. Good with Lamb too
and Mint Sauce (do remember to put a bit of sugar in the mix).
• Before planting and sowing anything outside and before anything pokes its’ head out do give the
ground a good spread of general fertilizer. Such as Bonemeal, Blood, Fish and Bonemeal, Seaweed
Concentrate or Growmore.
• The First Early Potatoes you started Chitting in early February could
now be planted. As can Shallots and Garlic.
• Finish all winter pruning on:- Gooseberries, Blackcurrants, Blueberries
and Autumn Raspberries if you haven’t done so already.
• Most importantly, do prepare your beds and seed bed ready for the
planting and sowing season.
• Rake up and discard any stubborn weeds that have survived the winter.
