Welcome to the February issue

What a very wet and windy
start to the new year it was,
continuing on from the bad
weather of 2015.
I think we should consider
ourselves very fortunate when you
realise how badly affected other
parts of the country have been.
Let’s hope that with Spring just
around the corner, and the days
getting longer, some brighter and
dryer weather may be with us.

is magazine is delivered free to an alternating selection of around
13,000 homes and businesses in Bournemouth, mainly through the
Charminster, Queens Park, Moordown, Ensbury Park, Redhill, Winton,
Muscliffe & Strouden Park districts.

If you would still like to obtain a copy when it is not your regular month,
copies are available at e Bournemouth Life Centre in Moordown,
Mike Stokes Tyres and Johns Fish & Chips in Moordown,
AH Parfitt - Chiropodist/Podiatrist and e Hungry Wolf Cafe in
Winton, Charminster & Winton libraries, Moordown Community
Centre, several laundrettes in Charminster, Moordown & Winton
as well as e Richmond Park Bowls Club in Charminster and the
Bournemouth Indoor Bowling Club, Kings Park.
(If you’d like to be included in one of these locations please do contact
me, all details are below)

I intend to continue increasing the coverage of e Local Eye over the
coming months and of course I will be looking for a lot more new
advertisers, so if you have a business you would like to let more people
know about, please get in touch.

More information on rates and ad copy submission as well as online

6 February 2016 - History Spotlights...

Decimalisation - 15th February 1971

On Monday 15 February 1971, Britain went decimal. The old money - pounds, shillings and
pence was replaced by a new system with 100 pence in the pound and no shillings. It seems
simple to those who have never known it to be different, but at the time people were worried
about it. Imagine the confusion though, if we were to go the other way now! Think of the
complications of a pound that has 240 pennies, with 20 shillings to the pound along with half
crowns & tanners, thrupenny bits and farthings! Decimalisation was not a new idea, proposals
were made to Parliament to decimalise sterling as early as 1824 though rejected of course.

For a while the old and the new currencies ran hand in hand. People could pay in pounds,
shillings and pence and get new pence in their change. There was an original intention to keep
the old money in circulation for eighteen months, but in the end, the old penny, halfpenny and
threepenny bits were no longer legal tender by August 1971. There were also a handful of shops
that refused to switch, resolutely clinging onto the past, but eventually even they had to change.
One big controversy with decimal currency was that people thought the shops used it as an
excuse to put up prices. We still have yet to embrace the idea of metrication over imperial
measurements as fully as we accepted the decimal currency, and you may still hear the phrase
“What’s that in old money?” when referring to metric measures. (Often by me!)

Derek J.Rolls

Independent Estate Agents & Valuers

ASK THE AGENT...

Q. With the market starting to pick up, should I put my home on the market now or wait till
Spring?

A. You have no idea just how often we estate agents get asked this question whatever the
time of the year, and whatever the state of the market!
And the answer, as always, is a resounding ‘NO! You do not need to wait till Spring’

You are right insofar as the market certainly has started to pick up. In fact, the past 6-8
months have seen an almost uninterrupted flow of good, positive news. But with prices
starting to creep upwards again, does that mean the canny vendor should wait a while longer
before coming to market in order to get the best possible price? No it doesn’t!

The simple fact is that there is rarely, if ever, anything to gain from waiting before putting
your home on the market. You mention Spring and certainly the period around Easter, in
particular, is traditionally supposed to bring the buyers out in their hoards. But that very fact
also tends to attract large numbers of vendors, eager to capitalise on what they optimistically
imagine is going to be the resulting feeding frenzy.

There is a philosophical point here as well. With prices on the increase, you could
theoretically wait forever in order to get top price for your home! Indeed, the only way you
could ever be certain of having got the best possible price, in this cycle at least, would be if
you sold just before values started falling again. And unless you were extremely lucky with
your timing, that would be unlikely to happen!

The longer answer to the question is you should move home when it suits you rather than try
to play the market.

Besides which, the one thing that just about every estate agent in the land is saying at
the moment is that there is a serious shortage of properties for sale right now. Buyers are
registering in their thousands, buoyed up by growing confidence in the state of the economy
as a whole, increasing availability of a wider range of mortgage products, and continuing
low interest rates. Yet agents don’t have enough stock on their books to satisfy them.


So, my advice is: “Go for it!”

Derek J.Rolls

Independent Estate Agents & Valuers

You may have seen us, but have you met us?

Derek Rolls...
One of the area’s most known and respected Estate Agents. Selling property
locally for over 30 years. Much business is from recommendation and most
of you will have either instructed Derek or know somebody whom he has
helped to move home! Derek has a very valued and sought after opinion on
the local market having experienced and worked through all it can throw. A
charitable chap who devotes much of his spare time to organisations helping
to help others. Currently, one of the sponsors of Moordown Bowls Club, we
are very proud to support a truly local Moordown club, a great community
facility involving many local residents.

Wendy Rolls...
We couldn’t do it without Wendy’s support. Mum and self proclaimed
C.E.O! From a Banking and Finance background fulfilling the admin role
and basically runs the place! Wendy will be there for anybody if needed
especially for those with four legs and a tail. As well as handling the day to
day challenges of a successful estate agency Wendy is voluntarily involved
with local animal search concerns. Her main passion is Dorset Search
Dogs and she’s training hard to raise funds for them in the 2016 London
Marathon. Currently working towards getting Giant Schnauzer, Hattie,
operational as a search dog to find missing persons (and even lost estate
agents) throughout the area.

Martin Traves...
Lives locally and devoted to the industry for 30 years (catching up with
Derek). Worked with a corporate agent and 10 years for a local independent
company. We were thrilled to have Martin join us just over 2 years ago and
he is a vital part of our small team. He has sold more than a few thousand
properties over the years for families, companies, solicitor recommendations
and helped to build investment portfolios. There’s not much goes on he
doesn’t know about. Spare time, volunteers for Bournemouth Lifeguard
Corps, teaches rookie Lifeguards, a qualified beach Lifeguard/Rescue Boat
Crew, doesn’t need too much encouragement to get wet.

We are a very busy agency but always have time for anybody
wanting to sell or buy probably their most valuable asset.
Honest straightforward advice.

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
down.

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.

Travel Feature -

2016.When is the best time to go? ... By Mags Addison

It’s cold outside. And we still have grey skies. Roll on escaping for a short while.
So while we are still in the grip of deep winter here in the UK, it’s comforting to
think ahead - towards a holiday or short break during 2016. But when is the best
time to go? What season? Matching the best time of year to various destinations
and parts of the world, is one way to get the most out of your precious holiday.
After all, why would you travel somewhere at the wrong time of year if you can
help it. So maybe this quick rundown will help, and give ideas.

January – February

This is usually the time for a sunshine holiday to escape the cold and frost here.
But bear in mind that if the sun is shining and it is hot weather somewhere – it
will be their peak season and the prices are higher. The Canaries, Cape Verde and far flung destinations like The
Caribbean, Australia, The Far East, Goa, Dubai, Abu Dhabi and also parts of Africa are ideal.
March – April

The end of our winter is in sight and places like Cyprus with its long warmer season become a good choice.
City breaks in Europe are good, when it’s less oppressive, or chilly – although watch out for the Easter crowds.
European river cruises, Holland and the tulips are pleasant at this time of year. Try far flung places like Cuba,
Mexico, India, and Sri Lanka. Although paradoxically March is a good time to see the Northern Lights in the Arctic!
Take your choice!
May-June

These are usually pleasant, warm months in the Mediterranean, and the prices in May are at their lowest for the
summer season. Spain, Portugal, Greece, Turkey and Egypt start to get busier now. Italy is lovely also now. Further
away, try the USA, Canada, Hawaii, Brazil or China.
July-August

So – it’s peak season, when prices start to rise along with the temperatures. All of the Med and Europe, Eastern
Europe, and the UK- have good weather now, so take your pick. This is when families have to take their annual
break because of school holidays, so prices are highest. It’s also peak time for the club scene in some of the hot
spots for young people. So, be careful which resort you book while thinking of popular Mediterranean areas.
September-October

The kids are back at school, so prices drop marginally – always a popular month for older clients.
Most of Southern Europe is still reasonably warm, so City Breaks and Touring holidays are popular. For sun spots -
usually the best bet to pick the places in the Eastern Med for more sunshine, like certain parts of Greece, and Turkey,
along with Malta and Cyprus.
November - December

Towards the end of the year, and it’s time to grab some late sunshine in the
Canaries, or Madeira. Good prices too, before the Christmas season swings in.
Late November is also the start of the Christmas Markets around the UK and
Europe – now a big part of the short break season.

I hope this has given you some ideas and insight? Happy travelling to you.

Name that band....

e Searchers - taken from a John Wayne film of the same name.
e Small Faces - all four members of the band were under 5’ 6” hence the ‘small’

part of the name and the ‘faces’ came from the mod slang for cool dudes.
Duran Duran - was a villain in the film ‘Barbarella’ which starred Jane Fonda.
ree Dog Night - derived from Australian slang for a freezing night. In the outback
on a cold night a man would need to sleep with a dog to keep warm. On a very cold
night he would need two dogs to keep him warm and three dogs on a freezing night.

Simple Minds - taken from ‘Jean Genie’ lyrics by David Bowie

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
anadventurethroughtimeandspace.com

We are going to hop in my TARDIS and
travel back in time to the summer of 2015.
Welcome to Puzzlewood in The Forest of
Dean, Gloucestershire - a forest for which
there is no map! Puzzlewood is a filming
location for many TV shows and films-
including a film called Star Wars - The Force
Awakens!
DON’T BLINK! Do you remember in Flesh
and Stone (2010) when the Doctor, River
and Amy are being chased down by the
Weeping Angels? Puzzlewood was the filming
location for the cybernetic forest on board
The Byzantium which provided the passengers with air. As they travelled through the
forest, poor Amy had to keep her eyes shut as she had a Weeping Angel in her eye. Luckily
for me I didn’t run into any Weeping Angels when I was there! Puzzlewood was also a
filming location for The Time of the Doctor (Christmas Special 2013), Matt Smith’s final
episode which saw the Eleventh Doctor regenerate. In this episode the Doctor and Clara
were attacked by the Weeping Angels in a frosty land.
Other things filmed at Puzzlewood include Atlantis, Merlin, Wizards vs Aliens, Jack the Giant
Slayer and Tree Fu Tom. Puzzlewood is so popular because of its very special scenery and
it looks amazing on screen. There is a wall of photos inside showing the many programmes
and films that have used this location.
On show at Puzzlewood, Scowles are the geological feature. Scowles are found throughout
the Forest of Dean and are ancient caves formed millions of years ago in the carboniferous
limestone that have come to the surface due to erosion. The rocks are covered in a
feathery moss that makes the forest so green (and the trees are so green too!) it is the

greenest place I have ever been. It is said
that Puzzlewood was the inspiration for
the forests of Middle Earth in JRR Tolkein’s
books, which sounds pretty reasonable to
me!
I had a really nice time at Puzzlewood and
enjoyed getting lost in the woods and trying
to figure my way out -it was a real puzzle!
I found many things including a magic
doorway and dinosaur feet. The weather
changed all the time and it got wetter and
muddier as the weather changed from good
to bad, good to bad. Top tip - if you visit
wear old clothes and wellies!
Thank you for reading and I hope you will join me again for my next
Doctor Who adventure.

Hi I‛m Eva a pretty 2 year old German Shepherd cross,
I came to Waggy Tails Rescue because of a change in my
family‛s circumstances. I am a good girl who loves to play
and I get on with humans and dogs alike but as I am still
fairly young I will need ongoing training. I am really good
company and I‛m missing having a family of my own where
I would be a loving and loyal member. The people here at
Waggy Tails call me their pretty princess and look after me
very well but please please could someone give me a forever

home.

For more information on Eva or any of the other animals in
our care please contact us on 01202 87500, e-mail: [email protected]
waggytails.org.uk or visit our website www.waggytails.org.uk

Christmas is now over for another year, but life at Waggy
Tails Rescue still keeps taking in animals that for one

reason or another cannot stay with their owners. All this cost the charity
a great deal of money so we are forever grateful of any donations made to
us, so if you have any unwanted Christmas presents why not donate them to
one of our shops who will gratefully receive them. As always we will be out
and about collecting throughout the year so look out for our yellow tops, so

all there is left to say is thank you to all who have supported us over the
years and hope you all have a good 2016.

Waggy Tails Rescue is a registered charity based in Dorset; we rescue
and rehome dogs that have been abandoned, neglected or otherwise
in need of a new home.
We also find homes for other small furries that may be in our care,
so to find out more you can contact us on the number above
or send donations or letters to:

Donations for Waggy Tails can be sent to:
Waggy Tails Rescue, Helens House, 143 Magna Rd, Canford Magna

Wimborne, Dorset BH21 3AW

*Please note, these are NOT Waggy Tails animals, just very guilty ones!

Brainstorm

1. If it were two hours later, it would be half as long until midnight as it would be if it were an
hour later. What time is it??

2. I am thinking of a five digit number. To help you it has the following parameters.
It contains neither zero or the number 1 and no digit is repeated.
The fourth digit is a quarter of the total of all of the digits.
The second digit is twice the first digit.
The third digit is the largest.
The last digit is the sum of the first two digits.

3. A jewellers safe has a rather unusual security keypad.
In order to open the safe you have to press every single
button once only, in the correct sequence, ending on the
button marked E.
Each button clearly states which button to press next, for
example, 2U means move up 2 buttons and 3R means move
right 3 buttons.
Can you discover which button you must start with?

4: How does this make sense? 1 was a race horse, 2 was 12, 111 race, 2112

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
can’t take zimmers or wheelchairs. There is no charge.

For more details phone Carolyn Dennis 01202 424482

“Honey, why don’t you sit down by the table and we’ll start supper.” Said
Dorothy to her husband of 50 years. “Sure thing,” said Bob, settling himself

down. “Now my darling, would you like some bread with your soup?”
“Umm I think a slice would go nicely please,” He answered.

After an evening of one loving term after another, their guest the local vicar,
couldn’t contain his curiosity any longer. Following her into the kitchen he
asked, “Dorothy do you always talk to your husband like that?”

“Well, I’ll be honest with you,” Dorothy replied. “It’s been five years now, I just
can’t remember his name, and I am just too embarrassed to ask him!”

TIRED OF POTHOLES

DOG POOP VANDALISM

BROKEN STREET LIGHTING

FLYYTIPPING LOOSE PAVING?

REPORT THEM TO THE COUNCIL WITH

.com by

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 www.FixMyStreet.com 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
section.

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

Tea for Tinnitus – Tinnitus Awareness Week 8th – 14th February

Do you suffer from ringing in your ears?

Ringing in the ears or tinnitus, as it is
medically known, is often described as
a hissing, buzzing, chirping, whistling
or a humming noise. Tinnitus is not a
disease or illness, but is thought to be
caused within a person’s own auditory
pathway. About 10 per cent of adults in
the UK experience mild tinnitus but up
to one per cent have tinnitus that affects
their quality of life.

The British Tinnitus Association (BTA) are a charity and world leader in
providing support and advice about tinnitus. This year sees them celebrate their
10th anniversary of Tinnitus Awareness Week by launching their Tea for Tinnitus
campaign.

Come along to your local event - Friday 12th February at 2pm.
Sunrise Senior Living, 42 Belle Vue Road, Southbourne

The local Bournemouth Tinnitus Support Group are holding a Tea for Tinnitus
event at on Members of the support group including Keeley Salmon, a hearing care
professional from Key to Hearing, will be on hand to provide advice about tinnitus,
tinnitus management and prevention. Come along and have a chat whilst enjoying a
nice cup of tea and some delicious cakes.

All donations collected on the day
will go to the BTA. Every penny
raised will make a difference by
helping to pay for the support the
BTA provide and their important
medical research into causes and
treatments for the condition.

sermon have already been disrupted by general dogsbody Dora’s singing and

and the Rev. Justin Wade - vicar of the adjoining parish.

“Just relax”, the hospital staff kept telling Jim, but it was to no avail. Jim’s
wife was in labour and Jim was a nervous wreck. After what seemed like an
eternity, to both Jim and the hospital staff, a nurse came out with the happy
news, “it’s a girl”, she cried. “Thank God, a girl”, said Jim, “at least she won’t

have to go through what I just went through!”

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

Gardening Tips for February

There is a surprising amount to do in February in spite of the weather and short days.
• Sow Sweet Peas inside in pots and pinch out the tops when 2 leaves have appeared.
• Fork and rake over flower beds in readiness for planting later.
• Plant any hedging you have planned for this year.
• Buy your seed potatoes and chit them inside in a bright frost
free area.
• If you did not force Rhubarb last year you can do it now by
placing a black bucket over to exclude any light.
• Start sowing crops from seed in the greenhouse.
• Use a Copper fungicide in watering to prevent Damping Off
disease.
• Clean up Greenhouses and cloches not already done with warm soapy water adding Jeyes fluid
if you wish. Don’t forget last year’s plant pots, stakes and plant supports intended for use in the
Spring.
• Take care not to tread on Spring Bulbs when walking across lawns and borders.
• Apply Ferrous Sulphate on lawns where moss is a problem.
• Plant Rose bushes now but do not prune until all risk of frost has passed.
• Hydrangea flower heads can now be removed down to a pair of shoots to encourage new growth.
• Remember to continue to feed the birds and provide clean water to drink and wash in.

Two elderly ladies were sitting on a park bench outside the local town hall
where a flower show was in progress.

One leaned over and said, “Life is so boring. We never have any fun anymore.
For £5 I’d take my clothes off right now and streak through that stupid flower

show!” “You’re on!” said the other old lady, holding up a fiver.
As fast as she could, the first little old lady fumbled her way out of her clothes

and, completely naked, streaked through the front door of the flower show.
Waiting outside, her friend soon heard a huge commotion inside the hall,
followed by loud applause. The naked lady burst out through the door

Take care of your feet...
Chilblains

Global warming is blamed for many worldwide disasters but
there has been one benefit as we have not had a really very
cold winter for over twenty years.
Chilblains (Erythema pernio) could be a thing of the past due to mild winters and better
living conditions, especially central heating. If we have a very cold spell now there will
be those who will wonder what this itchy red skin condition is on their legs and feet.

Keeping feet and legs warm with appropriate clothing is important. The best way to
keep warm is layers of clothing, ie two pairs of thin socks are better than one pair of
thick. I recommend thermal insoles for cold feet and for very cold weather fur lined
boots.

Chilblains are made worse by applying heat to the affected
area so keep feet away from the electric fire and hot water
bottles. If needed there are over the counter treatments
to ease the red itchy skin, eg iodine compounds such as
betadine, savlon spray, videne and ointments containing
methyl salicylate and many more. An old remedy for
chilblains was to soak the affected area with their piddle
(urine). This is not an old wives tale, it does actually work,
but there are creams containing manufactured urine (uric
acid) which are obviously far more pleasant to use!

Scratching the irritation will make the problem
a lot worse. Dirty fingernails could cause an
infection and broken chilblains could be the end
result which is a more serious problem requiring
medical help.

For chilblains sake let’s hope our winters remain
mild.
