Community rallies to restock food 
bank’s shelves in time for Christmas 


I Anders Larsson 

Chief reporter \ anders@viewnews.co.uk 

FOOD bank clients in Seaton did 
not have to go hungry this Christ¬ 
mas after local people, businesses 
and other organisations rallied to 
fill up the shelves. 

After a ‘regular’ dip earlier in the year, 
stocks are at a healthy level after a pre- 
Christmas surge of food donations. 

Stocks were set to increase further when 
donations from the foodbank’s ‘reverse 
Advent calendar’ were added. 

But there is no room for complacency as 
demand is expected to at least remain at

the current level, possibly increase. 

In the most recent 12-month statistical 
period (August 2016 - July 2017), provi¬ 
sions were made for 12,174 meals - a jump 
from 8,500 for the previous 12-month pe¬ 
riod. 

Indications are that current demand is 
in line with that of August 2016 - July 2017. 

Demand and donations fluctuate, but 
back in spring foodbank volunteers were 
forced to go out and buy food to meet de¬ 
mand. 

Chairman Stephen Page said about the 
pre-Christmas surge: “We have been 
blown away by people’s responses, busi¬ 
nesses and families have been collecting. 

“A big thank you to the people who have 
contributed in the past year, and long may 


their contributions continue 

Located at Number One Harepath Road, 
Foodbank in Seaton was started by Seaton 
Churches Together in 2012. 

People are referred to the foodbank by 
Citizens’ Advice and other partners. 

Leader of Crossroad Christian Fellow¬ 
ship, Jon Sibley, said: “We are very grate¬ 
ful for contributions from various harvest 
festivals, so we are in a good position. 

“But this time of year is the high point 
in terms of stock, we know it is going to go 
down.” 

Supporting the foodbank is easy, with 
collection bins placed at Seaton Tesco, 
Seaton main Co-op, The Gateway (town 
hall), Pebbles Coffee Shop, Marshlands 
town council offices and in churches. 



Volunteers are also welcome to join the 
team, and anyone wishing to donate 
money for food purchases can do so by 
sending a cheque to: Seaton Foodbank, 1 
Harepath Road, Seaton EX12 2RP.

Special officer wins national award 


A SPECIAL Chief Superinten¬ 
dent from Uplyme has won a 
national award for his leader¬ 
ship in tackling rural crime. 

Special Chief Superinten- 
dant Andrew Turner, who has 
volunteered with Devon & 
Cornwall Police for 37 years, 
recently picked up the Leader¬ 
ship Award at the Lord Fer¬ 
rers Awards, which recognise 
the outstanding contribution 
of special constables, police 
support volunteers and volun¬ 
teer police cadets. 

Mr Turner, who is also an 
Uplyme parish councillor, 
first started volunteering 
with the force in October 1981 
and was based in Axminster 
for well over 20 years, work¬ 
ing closely with the late Robin 
Cross, covering the East 
Devon beat. 

He is now based at police 
headquarters at Middlemoor, 
Exeter, and is in charge of 
every operational special 


across Devon and Cornwall - a 
team of 470 volunteers. 

During his service, Mr 
Turner has introduced a ded¬ 
icated ‘Rural Engagement 
Team’ to address the prob¬ 
lems of rural crime, increase 
engagement with the farming 
community, help to reduce 
suicides amongst farmers and 
provide crime prevention ad¬ 
vice. 

Rural communities and 
farmers in Devon and Corn¬ 
wall often feel isolated so the 
team maintain a high visibil¬ 
ity in these areas to provide 
reassurance. 

They have also signed up 
more than 400 farms to Farm 
Watch, a scheme that shares 
intelligence between the com¬ 
munity and the police to pre¬ 
vent theft. 

Mr Turner was among 600 
police volunteers nominated 
for the nine awards from 
forces across England and 


Wales - twice as many as last 
year - including seven nomi¬ 
nees from Devon and Corn¬ 
wall. He picked up the award 
at a ceremony at Millbank 
Tower in London, attended by 
Home Secretary Amber Rudd 
and Minister of State for 
Policing and the Fire Service, 
Nick Hurd. 

Mrs Rudd said: “Policing 
volunteers across the country 
play a fundamental role in 
what is widely recognised as 
one of the best police forces in 
the world. 

“The contribution all of this 
year’s nominees have made in 
keeping their communities 
safe is testament to the won¬ 
derful spirit of volunteering 
that exists in this country. 

“I want to thank every win¬ 
ner, runner-up and nominee 
for all that you do as we cele¬ 
brate your true dedication 
and professionalism to polic¬ 
ing.

Mr Hurd added: “Every year 
the Lord Ferrers Awards recog¬ 
nise the truly inspirational 
work of those who give up so 
much to serve their communi¬ 
ties. 

“Volunteers bring valuable 
skills from outside policing and 
help ensure our police force is 
fully equipped to deal with the 
challenges of 21st century polic¬ 
ing.” 

Mr Turner described the 
award as a “fantastic honour”, 
adding: “I’m part of a big team 
with many good people who 
work all hours, and they are all 
volunteers at the end of the 
day. 

“I was absolutely honoured to 
be nominated by my force and 
even more chuffed and sur¬ 
prised to have won this award.” 

The government has brought 
forward legislation in the Polic¬ 
ing and Crime Act to transform 
the powers and roles of police 
staff and volunteers, which 
came into force on December 
15th. 

These reforms will, for the 
first time, enable volunteers to 
be given powers at the discre¬ 
tion of chief officers, based on 
local need, and set out the core 
list of powers only available to 
a police officer holding the of¬ 
fice of constable.

New 'Home First' social 
care scheme rolled 
out across Somerset 

HOME First - a new social care and health initiative 
in Somerset - has already helped hundreds of peo¬ 
ple return safely home earlier from hospital. 

Since the initiative launched in September, more 
than 300 people have been supported to move on 
from hospital sooner and average stays in hospital 
have been reduced by five days for each person. 

As soon as someone no longer needs medical sup¬ 
port in hospital. Home First allows people to leave 
hospital rather than waiting on the ward for care as¬ 
sessments and rehabilitation planning, which can 
take time. 

Instead they receive those assessments and sup¬ 
port at home, or in a specialist unit, care home or 
community hospital, to help them get back on their 
feet. 

The Home First approach has been rolled out 
across the county including Yeovil's District Hospi¬ 
tal.

New app to offer 
NHS information 

RESIDENTS of Devon can now download a 
free app which gives them information about 
waiting and travel times for their local ur¬ 
gent NHS services. 

The app, NHSquicker, shows up-to-date 
waiting times for local emergency depart¬ 
ments (A&Es) and minor injuries units, 
based on the user’s location. It also shows 
live travel times to help people make in¬ 
formed decisions about where to go when 
they are in need of urgent treatment for a 
minor injury or illness. 

People can also use NHSquicker to find in¬ 
formation about less urgent NHS services, 
such as GPs, pharmacies, sexual health ser¬ 
vices, dentists and opticians. 

NHSquicker is available for smartphones 
and tablets, on Apple and Android. 

The app has been launched by the Health 
and Care IMPACT Network, a collaboration 
between the NHS across Devon and Cornwall 
and academics from the University of Exeter. 

The launch comes at a time when doctors 
are urging people to consider using another 
urgent care service if the issue is not serious 
or life-threatening, rather than an emer¬ 
gency department, as hospitals become bus¬ 
ier through the winter months. 

Professor Adrian Harris, medical director 
and consultant emergency physician at the 
Royal Devon and Exeter NHS Foundation 
Trust, said: “It is great to see frontline teams 
working together with academic partners in 
such an innovative way to come up with so¬ 
lutions. 

“What is more exciting is increasingly see¬ 
ing these ideas being shared and applied by 
organisations across the wider area and be¬ 
yond.” 

To download the app, people can head to the 
app store on their device and search for 
‘NHSquicker’. 


More recognition for East 
Devon’s recycling efforts 


THE efforts of East Devon 
households - who are now re¬ 
cycling more than ever before 
following the introduction of 
a new recycling service this 
year - has won local, national 
and international environ¬ 
ment awards for the district. 

Since February, the district 
council, in partnership with 
its contractors SUEZ, has 
rolled out a new recycling ser¬ 
vice to all 68,700 East Devon 
properties and extended the 
range of items residents can 
now have collected from the 
kerbside every week. 

Cardboard, plastics, cartons 
and small electrical goods 
have been added to the exten¬ 
sive number of items that can 
be recycled. 

As householders are able to 
recycle more and throw away 
less bulky rubbish, grey 
wheeled waste bins are now 
collected every three weeks. 

The move has led to a signif¬ 
icant increase in the amount 
of waste that is now recycled 
in the district and latest fig¬ 
ures show that, on average, 57 
percent of East Devon’s waste 
is being recycled - an in¬ 
crease of 15 percent compared 
to the beginning of this year. 

The changes put East Devon 
in the top 30 best recycling au¬ 
thorities out of 351 local au¬ 
thorities in the country. 

The new service has not 
only been well received by 


households, it’s winning 
awards too. 

In November, the council, 
on behalf of its residents, col¬ 
lected an international Green 
Apple Environment Award at 
a special ceremony at the 
Houses of Parliament. 

The award recognises, re¬ 
wards and promotes environ¬ 
mental best practice around 
the world. 

The new service also won 
the Devon Environmental 
Business Initiative’s best Pub¬ 
lic Service in Devon Award in 
late November and a month 
earlier, East Devon was one of 
four national finalists in the 
Best Communications Cam¬ 
paign of the Year in the na¬ 
tional Local Authority Recyc¬ 
ling Advisory Committee 
(LARAC) Awards. 

Councillor Tom Wright, 
East Devon District Council’s 
portfolio holder for the envi¬ 
ronment, said that the awa¬ 
rds were for all the house¬ 
holds who had participated so 
well in the new service. 

He said: “The service has re¬ 
ceived exceptional support 
from so many households 
across the district and I am 
absolutely delighted with the 
response. 

“The East Devon recycling 
team is all too aware that our 
residents have had to make 
some considerable adjust¬ 
ments in their daily routines 


to accommodate the changes 
to their recycling and waste 
collections. 

“The aim of the new service 
was to help our residents re¬ 
cycle more, which many had 
asked us to do, and a 15 per 
cent increase in recycling in 
just a few months proves to us 
that this service was much 
needed and is a considerable 
success. 

“Environmentally, we are 
relieving the pressure of 
dumping our waste and we 
are recycling our resources to 
better effect. 

“We may not see the envi¬ 
ronmental impact of our cur¬ 
rent recycling actions today, 
but in the long term I have no 
doubt that we will.” 

East Devon residents will be 
able to recycle Christmas 
wrapping paper this year, as 
they have been able to in pre¬ 
vious years. 

However, as is normal prac¬ 
tice, EDDC are unable to ac¬ 
cept shiny, metallic, plastic or 
glittered wrapping paper for 
recycling as this type of mate¬ 
rial cannot be accepted at 
their recycling mill.

Silverleigh thanks local charity shop for the 
volunteering opportunities it offers residents 



■ Hospiscare's Axminster charity shop manager Anna Proszowska (right) receives a Christmas 
gift for the team from Silverleigh 



Citizen of the year award winner 
to be announced next month 


THE inaugural winner of the 
Robin Cross Citizen of the 
Year Award will be revealed 
in January. 

Members of Axminster 
Town Council met behind 
closed doors on December 
11th to sift through nomina¬ 
tions and make a decision. 

A winner was chosen but his 
or her name will be kept 


under wraps until the town 
council meeting on Monday 
January 8th, when an an¬ 
nouncement and award pre¬ 
sentation will be made. 

Mr Cross, who was known 
for his selfless community 
spirit and dedication to Axm¬ 
inster, died suddenly in April 
at the age of 68. 

Members of Axminster 


Town Council felt that a 
permanent mark of respect 
for Mr Cross and his devotion 
to the town would be in ord¬ 
er. 

The winner’s name will be 
engraved on a shield, the 
award being accompanied by 
a cheque for £100 payable to 
the charity of the recipient’s 
choice. 


A CARE home has praised a 
charity shop for the volunteer¬ 
ing opportunities it offers. 

Two Silverleigh Care Home 
residents have been volun¬ 
teering in Hospiscare’s Axmi¬ 
nster shop since last year. 

A Silverleigh spokesperson 
said: “Working and being sup¬ 
ported by the staff both at the 
home and the shop has been 
an amazing opportunity for 


these two ladies to be part of 
the community. 

“The charity shop has been 
so open-minded and support¬ 
ive towards these two ladies, 
they both now have official 
name badges to confirm their 
volunteer status, and we 
would like to thank Hospis- 
care.” 

A small Hospiscare delega¬ 
tion visited the shop on Thurs¬ 


day December 14th to hand 
over a Christmas present to 
manager Anna Proszowska 
and her team. 

Ms Proszowska said: “We re¬ 
ally appreciate the help and 
we always welcome volun¬ 
teers to the shop. 

“The Silverleigh residents 
are fantastic and part of our 
team.”

Chilcotts visit college for WWI memorabilia 


CHILCOTTS Auctioneers vis¬ 
ited Honiton Community Col¬ 
lege with war memorabilia 
recently to help students un¬ 
derstand the reality of the 


First World War. 

During the visit, arranged 
with history teacher Mrs An¬ 
derson, Liz Chilcott spoke to 
groups of Year Eight students 


about the objects and what 
they meant for soldiers at the 
time. 

She showed the students a 
number of interesting items, 



including an original map dis¬ 
playing the position of tren¬ 
ches in Guillemont, one of the 
locations of the Battle of the 
Somme, and a carving made 
by Germans interned in South 
Africa. 

Mrs Chilcott said: “We cur¬ 
rently have a good selection of 
items from the First World 
War ready to go to auction, 
and we felt it was a good op¬ 
portunity for the students to 
see some of the things they’ve 
been talking about in class. 

“Being able to look at and 


touch objects from the actual 
time can really help bring the 
history to life. 

“Knowing that a map or a 
water canteen were used by 
real soldiers, many of whom 
would have perished in the 
war, makes it all more real.” 

After Liz’s talk, the students 
were able to take a closer look 
at the objects, trying on hel¬ 
mets, handling a bugle and 
trench art - sculptures made 
by soldiers to while away time 
in the trenches - and looking 
at medals and pictures includ¬ 


ing a fascinating war photo¬ 
graph album showing original 
shots taken in France. 

The items that gained the 
most interest from students 
were a rare cutaway WWI pe¬ 
riod Coopers patent 201b aerial 
bomb and an original German 
helmet with a spike. 

“The helmet is made from 
leather and the Germans re¬ 
alised quite early on in the 
war that this didn’t offer much 
protection, so they changed to 
metal helmets,” Mrs Chilcott 
explained.

EAST DEVON 


www.viewnews.co.uk 


Remember your loved ones 
at funeral directors across 
the area this Christmas 



■ Paul Fudge, Julian & Karen Hussey and Jerry 
Parkhouse are behind the memory tree idea 


FUNERAL directors across 
East Devon will be offering 
the bereaved a chance to re¬ 
member their loved ones by 
placing a memory card on a 
memory tree again this year. 

Julian Hussey said: “Losing 
someone you love is difficult 
beyond words and we are re¬ 
minded of them always and 
cherish the precious memo¬ 


ries we have. 

“This time of year comes 
with many feelings and mixed 
emotions so during December 
all of our funeral homes will 
be displaying a memory tree, 
for those who have lost loved 
ones to come and place a mem¬ 
ory card with their personal 
message of remembrance.” 

Anyone is welcome to call in 


between 10am and 2pm (Mon¬ 
day to Friday) or simply call 
or email and a message can be 
written for you. 

The funeral directors taking 
part in the initiative are W. G. 
Potter (Axminster), E.A. Dodd 
& Son (Honiton), E.A. Dodd & 
Son (Ottery St Mary), Over¬ 
mass & Chapel (Seaton). 



the project 

Supporting young people on me 
path to bettor mental Mil 


A monthly column 
by KERRY CABLE 
from the peer 
support network for 
young people with 
mental health issues, 
based in Axminster 
and Chard 


NOW I know what most of you will 
be thinking - 'Don't put a damp¬ 
ener on my festive buzz by talking 
about mental illness.' 

And I totally get what you're say¬ 
ing, for many people this is the 
happiest and most joyful time of 
their year and I am very pleased 
for all of you happy little Christ¬ 
mas elves. 

However, I also think it is impor¬ 
tant to remember that not every¬ 
one is basking in the glow of their 
tree lights this week. 

As many as 20 per cent of us are 
feeling lonely this Christmas 
(2015, Mind). Many people will be 
missing relatives and caring for ill 
loved ones. 

Sometimes just the pressure to 
be so intensely happy on one day 
can drive people to stay indoors 
and avoid social situations. 

A survey also found that 19 per 
cent of workers will fabricate sick¬ 
ness to avoid the work Christmas 
party and 20 per cent find that 
they feel very anxious about large 
social occasions of this nature. 

TV presenter Matt Johnson has 
recently been talking in the press 
about his brush with suicide, just 
a few days before Christmas eight 
years ago. He cited his main anxi¬ 
ety as being stress around money 
and finances. This can be a huge 
burden for people who are feeling 
the pressure to create the 'perfect 
family Christmas'. 

I know that previously, for me, it 
has traditionally been a time of 
year where I have felt stressed and 
anxious around what will be ex¬ 
pected of me and having nowhere 
to escape to if I started to feel the 
grip of anxiety seeping in. In my 


teens and early 20s I had a very 
obsessive and unhealthy relation¬ 
ship with food and being sur¬ 
rounded by so many of my trigger 
foods invariably lead to a binge 
and the inevitable guilt and pun¬ 
ishment that followed. 

These are just a few examples 
of the many different issues that 
can spark the symptoms of men¬ 
tal health issues at this time of 
year. 

So what can we do to protect 
our wellbeing this Christmas? 
These are just a few suggestions 
that I would discuss with clients 
and our young people at The Pro¬ 
ject. 

• Be careful with alcohol: It can 
be very tempting to blank out dif¬ 
ficult or upsetting thoughts with a 
deluge of festive beverages. 

This may help in the short term 
but alcohol is actually a depres¬ 
sant that is well known for exacer¬ 
bating the symptoms of anxiety 
and depression, once that hang¬ 
over has kicked in. 

• Never underestimate the power 
of sugar: Sometimes a sugar han¬ 
gover can be just as damaging to 
your mental health as alcohol. 
Sugar gives a very rapid high and 
what goes up must come down. 
I'm afraid... 

• Take a break from social media: 
Although digital technology is a 
fantastic tool for reaching out to 
friends and family when you need 
support, it can also make you feel 
like your life just doesn't quite 
measure up to the filtered version 
of everybody else's. If it's making 
you feel rubbish, put it down, read 
a book, watch a film, take the dog 
for a walk, call or visit a loved one 


and remind yourself why you are 
fine just as you are. 

• Take some time for self care: 
When you are rushing around try¬ 
ing to get everything done before 
the big day it can be really easy to 
forget to do the things that keep 
your mind calm and your stress 
levels down. 

Whether it's writing in a journal, 
having a bath, playing with a pet, 
doing something nice for some¬ 
body else or just simply having a 
ten minute power nap, now is not 
the time to forget to look after 
yourself. 

You will be much better 
equipped to get that to do list 
done once you recharge and you 
are at far less risk of stressful neg¬ 
ative thoughts creeping in. 

• Check in with yourself: Ask 
yourself 'how am I feeling right 
now?' It can be very easy for men¬ 
tal wellbeing to be slipping away 
from us before we have even had 
a chance to do anything to pre¬ 
vent it. 

Keeping tabs on yourself means 
that you may be able to stop those 
niggling anxious feelings before 
they feel like they are beyond your 
control. 

■ I REALLY hope you all do exactly 
what you would like to do with any 
time off you have over the festive 
period and I look forward to re¬ 
turning for more wellbeing chat in 
the new year! 

If you would like to get in touch 
please send me an email at 
hello@feedingmindandbody.com.

Slimming^ 'World, £abt 'Devon 


What a challenge! - Carol's Story 


IT STARTED with a normal visit to the surgery 
nurse for blood tests following a period of 
serious illness and end up with an offer of 
support for me to be referred to slimming 
world for a 12 week programme. 

That chance comment, the non- 
judgemental approach of the nurse, started 
me on a life changing journey! 

I attended my first session with fear about 
being the biggest person ever to walk 
through the door, I huffed and puffed up the 
driveway and went through the door to be 
confronted with men and women laughing 



and apparently having fun!!! For a moment I 
wondered if I was at the right place! 

The Consultant, Sharon welcomed me in 
and went through the whole plan with me on 
that day. I was amazed at what I could eat, 
in fact I could not believe one could lose 
weight when one is eating so much! But I 
have and do! 

The food optimising plan itself is not a diet 
but a way of living and eating that retrains 
members to recognise nothing is out of 
bounds but there are choices which are 
healthy, enjoyable and easy to obtain and 
prepare, ideal for someone like me who likes 
an easy life in the kitchen! I couldn't believe 
I could still enjoy fish & chips, spaghetti 
Bolognese, a classic filling cooked breakfast 
as well as my easy favourite roasts. 

The support of the group is also key to my 
journey, I have learnt so much from others, 
have tried different recipes from the ideas 
shared at the group session. Sharon is 
always on hand to encourage and seems to 
have the knack of sending those text 
messages when one needs that extra 
support! 


The initial 12 weeks flew by and as I was 
reaping the benefits so soon I decided to 
carry on attending and following the plan 
which is now a way of life for me. I am so 
determined to carry on and even when I was 
going through an extremely tough time 
following the death of my husband, I still 
persevered - I am now enjoying the 
prospect of reaching a 10 stone loss goal at 
the end of January, this I hope to achieve by 
the date of my joining the group 2 years ago! 

Did I say it has been life changing? Well for 
me my health has improved beyond 
recognition, I joined the gym and attend 
circuit classes and I can shop in the high 
street stores having gone from size 30/32 to 
20/18 yes there is still a couple of dress sizes 
to go but what a difference to every aspect 
of my life! 

I no longer huff and puff up the driveway, 
mind you Devonshire hills still present a few 
challenges, but when I think where I started 
I really want to cheer! 

So it is a huge thanks to all those who 
started me on the journey and have support 
and encouraged me along the way! 

Carol attends Slimming World at the 
Honiton Family Church every Wednesday at 
9.30am. Groups are also held every Tuesday 


at 3.30pm 5.30pm and 7.30pm and also on 
a Wednesday at 7.30pm.

I HOLD my private chiropody clinic at 
Townsend House Surgery in Seaton. 

I offer a range of treatments from a 
simple nail cut to nail surgery, and 
each treatment plan is priced 
accordingly. 

The nail cutting only service is a 
shorter appointment and is ideal for 
those that don't have any other foot 
care needs. Others like to alternate 
nail cuts with chiropody treatments 
as it best suits their requirements. I 
always aim to work with the patient 
to find the best treatment plan to suit 
each individual. Patients feet are 
then monitored during treatment so 
that changes can be made should 
the need arise. 

Diabetic patients who attend for 
chiropody will also have a diabetic 
foot assessment carried out during 
their first treatment, and will then be 
monitored and re-assessed as 
necessary. 

My chiropody clinics are available to 
anybody seeking help with their feet 
and Townsend House and I look 
forward to welcoming you. 

Bookings can be made by calling 
01297 22956.

FITNESS TRENDS WE'LL ALL 
BE FOLLOWING IN 2018 


Live streaming classes 

The trend for working out in your 
living room isn't going anywhere next 
year. While we've been punching and 
kicking in front of YouTube for years, 
expect to see a live broadcasting 
element dominate in 2018. If you're a 
digital nomad that can't commit to the 
same weekly classes and sessions, 
you'll soon be able to take part in 
interactive, live classes with top 
trainers from anywhere in the world. 
Boutique subscription service 
classpass.com is set to lead the pack, 
with its own streaming service which 
launches early next year, while Pelaton 
(onepeloton.com) has a fleet of inter¬ 
connected spin bikes that will pit you 
against other at-home users. Game on. 


Competitive fitness 

You might not have fallen out with 
your friends over who can do a better 
handstand since school, but a swathe 
of new classes will prove that your pals 
can inspire just the right sort of shallow 
and fervid motivation to push you 
further in the gym. Anyone who's 
worked out with a contemporary will 
know that having a rival can drive you 
into picking up a larger kettlebell, 
spinning your legs faster on a bike, or 
holding a plank for 30 seconds longer. 
This element of friendly - but blindingly 
egotistical - competition is a theme 
that'll shake up the format of group 
training sessions this year.

SOCIAL Anxiety, can seem even more 
difficult as the festive season approaches. 
Many people go through life dreading such 
encounters and social engagements where 
they are exposed to their feared social 
situation, which provokes anxiety, or 
possibly a panic attack. Social anxiety 
disorder (SAD), not to be confused with 
seasonal depression associated with the 
onset of winter or social phobia, is a 
common anxiety disorder in which 
individuals shun all forms of interpersonal 
contact or undergo extreme physical or 
mental discomfort in social settings. Until 
recently, this condition was dismissed as a 
normal variant of human personality. 
However, most psychologists and 
therapists now believe that social phobia is 
not another label for shyness. Shyness 
neither is a prerequisite for nor can be 
considered as synonymous with social 
anxiety disorder. 

Patients with SAD crave for company, but 
fear social interactions because they are 
afraid of being ridiculed and perceived as 
unlikable, stupid or boring. They suffer 
from low self esteem and SAD is also 
associated with an increased risk of 
conditions such as depression. 

Presently, the treatment options for SAD 
include either psychotherapy, medication, 
or both. Cognitive behaviour therapy that 
aims at changing the thought patterns and 
physical reactions to anxiety-inducing 
situations is found to be effective in 
treating social phobia. SAD has been 
described as an “illness of lost 
opportunities.” Few people with social 
anxiety disorder seek professional help. 
For most patients suffering in silence, it 
remains a pervasive disabling condition 
that prevents them from leading a fuller, 
richer life. Clinical Hypnotherapy can help 
many to build the skills and self esteem 
needed to change this debilitating 
condition, and manage it better. Call 
Michelle Hague to see if she can help,

IT'S that time of year again when we 
promise we will change ourselves in 
some way: giving up something 
(smoking or some food) or start doing 
something more (exercise or work). 
And then when we can't keep it up we 
start to beat ourselves up and give up. 
Let me help you make the changes in 
your life without the negativity. Let me 
help you with the stress of change; help 
remove the mental and emotional 
blocks stopping you from reaching 
your goals. 

I use Emotional Freedom Technique 
(EFT) also called Tapping to help you 
move forward with your life. A session 
of EFT has been scientifically proven to 
lower Cortisol (the stress hormone) in 
your blood by 24% more than a session 
of traditional counselling and this can 
have a major effect on many emotional 
and physical symptoms. 

So if your goal is to give up an 
addiction, improve your physical and 
mental health, let go of an unhelpful 
past, or want to move forward with your 
life in a strong, positive and relaxed 
way, please contact me to find out how 
EFT can help you become the Real You.

years has helped others improve their 
self-image and mindset so that they 
can become their very best and fully 
enjoy life. 

Celia's skills in NLP & hypnosis 
will coach you to overcome anything 
that is making you unhappy, for 
example: stress, anxiety, depression, 
weight problems, insomnia, phobias, 
negative habits, lack of confidence, low 
self-esteem, bereavement or a 
relationship break up. It can also boost 
your confidence and help you take on 
things that you may find difficult, for 
example public speaking, encouraging 
you to make the very best of yourself 
and your life. 

Celia empowers people with the 
knowledge and strategies to improve 
the quality of their lives, helping 
people to have personal freedom and 
positive choice in the way that they 
think, feel and enjoy life. 

Bespoke hairstyling will create fab 
hair, your 24-hour accessory. Celia gives 
you extra time to discuss the best styles 
to suit your face shape, hair texture and 
life style. Each haircut is created with 
care and precision. Enjoy an extra 
special experience at a highly 
professional, peaceful, countryside 
salon. 

Celia's expertise in Personal 
Styling will help you to: 

Dress to flatter your body shape and 



update your current look. 

Recognise and emphasise your best 
features. 

Look slimmer or more curvy. 

Elongate your legs or torso. 

Create a balanced silhouette. 

Choose colours that complement you 
and lift your mood.

future. 

Look great at every age and feel 
more confident. 

Whether Celia is creating a fab 
hairstyle, showing someone how to 
dress to flatter their body shape or 
coaching someone to achieve their 
goals, her customers tell her that they 
look and feel “10 years younger” and 
feel more confident and happy.

MORE FITNESS TRENDS TO 
HAVE ON YOUR RADAR 


Rest and recovery 

Yes, you heard correctly. Rest is going 
to be a big fitness trend next year. Most 
trainers know that getting enough 
recovery time after workouts is essential 
for achieving high-level performance, 
and the same is true of the average gym- 
goer. That's why this year will see a shift 
to advanced recovery plans that will 
target areas like the fascia - the expansive 
network of densely-packed collagen 
fibres that encases every part of your 
body. If you're bending, flexing and 
crunching, it's time to take things down 
a notch and pack in some decent 
recovery time, to reduce the risk of injury 
and allow you to perform for better and 
longer. See you in the sauna. 


of muscle. Thanks to female celebrity 
fans like Megan Fox, Millie Mackintosh 
and Khloe Kardashian, the weights area 
will truly be a gender neutral utopia next 
year. Instagram is already following suit 
with a new fitness photo trend that's a 
variation of the classic 'before and after' 
weight-loss photo, but with a major 
difference - the focus is not on losing 
weight, but gaining brawn. 


Strength training 

If you're firmly in camp 'strong not 
skinny', you'll be pleased to know that 
Pinterest's 2018 forecast picked out 
strength training as one of the biggies for 
next year, optimistically claiming that 
exercise is moving away from size to 
strength. Instead of squatting and 
spinning to hit a goal weight, we'll all 
lifting barbells to build a healthy amount 


Mermaiding 

Ever wanted to be a mermaid? Well, 
now you actually can - in fact, according 
to experts, you can also get a six-pack at 
the same time. Dubbed 'mermaiding', the 
slightly bonkers trend for donning a 
fishtail and performing aerobic exercises 
in a swimming pool took off in Colorado 
last year - and has already started 
causing slight ripples in the UK. The 
head-to-fins aerobic classes involve 
pulling on a sparkly mermaid tail, then 
learning how to swim like one, by 
swishing your legs in a rhythmic 
movement. The classes are said to 
engage the abdominal muscles, giving 
you rock-solid abs and a core of steel. 
Time to dig out your seashell bra. 


Richard CaaJte hypnotherapy

Arts Centre looks 
ahead to 2018 

THE old year may be drawing to a close but Ilminster Arts 
Centre is already looking ahead to an action-packed 2018 and 
has just announced its events programme for January to 
April. From classical concerts to jazz gigs and folk nights, 
art exhibitions, craft workshops, textile fairs, a reader’s 
group, jazz jam sessions and much more, there is always 
something interesting to see and do at the Arts Centre. 

The Arts Centre’s latest events guide has just been pub¬ 
lished and is your indispensable guide to enjoying the arts in 
Ilminster. It’s available from local libraries, TIC’s and, of 
course, from the Arts Centre itself. Pop in and pick up your 
copy - and start planning your cultural year ahead. 


Winning works on display 


THE first exhibition of the year at Ilminster Arts Cen¬ 
tre is a group show by the prizewinning artists of the 
Ilminster 2017 Open Competition. 

This exhibition has the reputation of being a barom¬ 
eter of talent in Somerset and the local region and fea¬ 
tures a wide range of subjects, from carefully 
observed still lifes to colourful abstract landscapes. 
There’s an equally broad scope of media on show too, 
including wood turned vessels, delicately nuanced 


drawings and prints, along with vibrant water¬ 
colours and oils. 

Taking part in the exhibition are Leo Davey, the 
West Somerset based artist and illustrator who won 
first prize, and the joint second prize winners - 
painter and printmaker Marie Blake and Philip Win- 
stone, a self-taught abstract-impressionist painter 
whose work is inspired by the Dorset coast. Also re¬ 
turning to the Arts Centre is Liz Kent, a skilled wood 
turner who was a joint 
winner of the 3D prize, 
and Jenny Barron, a 
Watchet based artist 
whose realistic still life 
paintings in watercolour 
scooped the Visitors’ 
Choice Award. 

The line-up is completed 
by the three Highly Com¬ 
mended prizewinners: 
Andrea Clark, Jan God¬ 
frey and Robert Hinton. 

This eclectic and enjoy¬ 
able exhibition opens on 
Tuesday, January 2nd 
and runs until Saturday, 
January 20th. 



Advertiser's announcement 

Let the 
Bible speak 

INCHING into the New Year, perhaps after 
seasonal celebrations with family and 
friends, we turn to face 2018 wondering 
what it holds for us individually and for the 
increasingly uncertain world we live in. The 
quote from Psalm 24 which appears at the 
head of this advertisement expresses the 
simple fact that the earth belongs to its 
Creator God. The psalm goes on to say that 
He has a plan for it and the Bible through¬ 
out tells what that purpose is. 

The preceding psalm, number 23, is fa¬ 
mously well known. Here, writing 1000 
years before the time of Jesus, David, God's 
king-in-waiting, writes of his trust in God at 
a time when he was under constant threat 
from his enemies. He says, "The Lord is my 
shepherd so I shall not be in want". He tells 
of God restoring and guiding him through 
his difficulties even when he is in the "valley 
of the shadow of death". His trust and hope 
was well-founded in what he knew of God 
from His word. 

Today, that is still one of the rewards for 
getting to know the Bible. 


Let the Bible speak 

"The earth is the Lord's and all its fullness - 
the world and those who live in it" 

(Psalm 24)

Exeter Northcott Theatre announces 
2018 Spring Summer Season 


EXETER Northcott Theatre is delighted to an¬ 
nounce a packed 2018 spring and summer season 
with tickets now on sale for more than 50 new 
shows. 

As a year of 50th anniversary celebrations begin, 
a diverse programme puts classical drama, new 
writing and modern adaptations alongside dance, 
opera, musicals and comedy. 

One of the highlights of next year’s season is a 
first visit from Cornwall’s Kneehigh Theatre with 
its acclaimed The Flying Lovers of Vitebsk. 

The production follows artist Marc Chagall and 
wife Bella through a war-torn 20th-century Europe, 
reflecting the artist’s work from the stage with 
music and dance in the Russian Jewish tradition. 

There is an extraordinary new circus adaptation 
of the Little Mermaid by our associate company 
Metta, who were behind the smash hit Jungle 
Book, with awe-inspiring acrobatics and spellbind¬ 
ing original songs. 

Following a successful pilot, Beyond My Control 
returns ahead of a national tour. Science meets the¬ 
atre in this interactive performance about epilepsy, 
excitability and all things neurological. Developed 
in association with the University of Exeter, this 
work forms part of the theatre’s IMPACT strand of 
work - leading edge performance on subjects where 
University of Exeter research is world leading. 

John Godber’s award winning comedy about a 
hopeless pub rugby team, Up ’n’ Under, is given a 
unique spin by visual physical theatre company 
fingersmiths’ with a cast of deaf and hearing actors 
using British Sign Language and spoken English. 

The extraordinary Vamos Theatre brings its 
trademark, wordless, full mask style to A Brave 
Face, which is set in the Afghanistan war and ex¬ 
plores post-traumatic stress and the impact it can 
have on even the closest of families. 

Innovative dance productions include a striking 
adaptation of Macbeth by the Mark Bruce Com¬ 
pany, new works by the Richard Alston Dance 
Company, a double bill by Ballet Black and the re¬ 
turn of Northern Ballet and Ballet Central. 

Lionel Bart’s Oliver! is among the musical offer¬ 
ings alongside Sasha Regan’s all male Iolanthe and 
a production of Flashdance, starring Strictly Come 
Dancing Champion Joanne Clifton and A1 heart- 
throb Ben Adams. 

For younger audiences there is puppetry and 
music in Theatre Alibi’s The Boy Who Climbed 
into the Moon, Birmingham Stage Company’s 
world premiere production of David Walliams’ 
Awful Auntie and an imaginative retelling of 
Gruffalo author Julia Donaldson’s The Snail and 
the Whale. 

Drama offerings include Filter Theatre’s riotous 
production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, a new 
staging of Dickens’ Great Expectations, with 
Nicola McAuliffe and West End hit The Wipers 
Times, by Ian Hislop 
and Nick Newman, 
tells the true and ex¬ 
traordinary story of a 
satirical newspaper 
created in the mud and 
mayhem of the First 
World War. 

A company of ex-sol- 
diers bonds as a the¬ 
atrical band of 
brothers in the heart¬ 
warming story about 
surviving the forces 
and PTSD, Soldier On- 
a play within a play 
written by Soldier, Sol¬ 
dier and London’s 
Burning actor 

Jonathan Guy Lewis. 

There are a string of 
comedy shows includ¬ 
ing Stewart Lee, David 
Baddiel, Richard Her¬ 
ring and cherished 
raconteur and cricket 
lovers’ favourite, 

Henry Blofeld. 

English Touring 
Opera return with a 
new staging of 
Mozart’s The Marriage 
of Figaro and a revival 
of their critically ac¬ 
claimed 2011 Puccini 
double bill, il Tabarro 
and Gianni Schicchi. 

Also, just announced 
for sale and opening in 
October is a major new 


revival of Schiller’s Don Carlos starring Tom 
Burke as the Marquis of Posa. This great romantic 
drama forms the centrepiece of the theatre’s 50th 
anniversary year, which is supported by patron 
Dame Judi Dench. 

Paul Jepson, artistic and executive director at 
Exeter Northcott, said: “I really hope people are as 
excited as I am about what we have put together 
for next year. 

“Our programme is now not only of incredibly 
high quality it is also extraordinarily diverse - 
whether it is what we’ve made, what our associate 
companies have made or what our partners have 
made. 

“I want people to look at the programme and 
think ‘wow, I’ve really got to see that’ because we 
try to put audience enjoyment at the heart of ev¬ 
erything.” 

Tickets for the spring/summer 2018 season are 
now on sale. Call the Exeter Northcott Theatre box 
office on 01392 726363 or book your seats online at

‘Christmas. Time.’ 


A fabulously funny festive treat 


CHARLIE and Toby are feel¬ 
ing low, and why wouldn't 
they? It's Christmas Day and 
they're serving time at Her 
Majesty's pleasure. But why 
shouldn't they be having a 
Merry Christmas in spite of 
their incarceration? What's 
stopping them from creating 
Christmas around them? Ab¬ 
solutely nothing! 

And so they set off on their 
festival of carols, Claus, 
Christ and custody! Join 
them on a fantastical adven¬ 


ture through Dickens, pan¬ 
tomime, musical, Christmas 
dinner and Christmas films! 
See as they build a wonder¬ 
fully Merry Christmas 
around them with songs, 
snowmen and lots of laughs 
in this truly festive show that 
puts the 'cell' firmly back in 
'celebration'! 

Written by Daniel Richards 
and Ciaran Clarke, and di¬ 
rected by Simon Harvey

region), ‘Christmas.

edy for all the family, a fes¬ 
tive and fantastically funny 
Christmas offering from 
Near-ta Theatre! Suitable for 
ages 10+

Griff Rhys Jones: Where Was I? 


FOLLOWING the successful tour of "Jones and 
Smith" last year - his one-man, stand-up and 
story show about his partner, his untimely death, 
their relationship and the onset of ageing - Griff 
Rhys Jones is going back on the road this spring 
to explore the subject of travel. 

Where was I? takes as its starting point some 
of Griff's personal jaunts from the last fifteen 
years. He has sailed a boat to St Petersburg and 
around the Med. He has travelled in Morocco, 
the Galapagos, India and Australia. But mostly 
he has ventured forth to work for TV, making 


V 


Greatest Cities, A Slow Train to Africa, In Search 
of the Black Rhino, Burma and The Forgotten 
Army, several series of Three Men In A Boat and 
programmes on mountains, rivers, lost routes 
and tribal art. 

He's going to look behind those "making of" 
snippets for the real truth about TV travel. He has 
wandered from The Torres Straight Islands to 
Mali, from Moscow to Dar Es Salam, ridden "the 
train of death", jumped from a burning boat in 
the Galapagos, sat with tribal elders and been 
ordered off their island. He has unwillingly 
climbed up mountains and abseiled down wa¬ 
terfalls, gone window cleaning on New York 
skyscrapers without a safety rope and clam¬ 
bered through Manchester's most demanding 
sewers. And all without the help of Bear Grylls. 

He will be telling plenty of funny stories but 
also musing on the nature of travel itself - about 
the differences between travel and tourism. Why 
do we go? What are we searching for? What do 
you need to pack? Why does television demand 
jeopardy, incident and immersion? And what ex¬ 
actly does that mean for your sanity? Ben Loyal 
in a blizzard. Upside down in the Wye rapids. 
Falling out of a coracle. Why does it all have to 
be so arduous? It's the truth about making travel 
television. And the truth about wanderlust. 

And he has never lain on a beach with a 
cocktail in his life. Isn't it time for a hol¬ 
iday? Why do holidays have to be im¬ 
proving and what's the point of 
looking at ruins? What are all us old 
people doing taking gap years? And 
most important of all - how to get an 
upgrade. Every aspect of the mania 
to leave home will be under con¬ 
sideration and some for the arm¬ 
chair traveller too. 

Griff Rhys Jones brings 'Where 
Was I?' to Yeovil's Octagon The¬ 
atre on Saturday, February 10th.

Walking Netball is a slowed down version 
of the game, designed for anyone looking 
to exercise in a relaxed, supportive and 
friendly environment. 

A game of Walking Netball is for all ages 
and abilities and every session contains 
a gentle warm-up.

netball 


- Advertiser’s Announcement - 

How do I take a walk on the mild side? 


WALKING Netball is one of the newest 
forms of walking sports to emerge in our 
communities. The rules are essentially 
the same as the traditional game, but by 
reducing the speed and taking out jump¬ 
ing, the game becomes much more acces¬ 
sible to those who are less active, injured 
or have previously been unable to take 
part due to ongoing illness. 

With less impact on the joints, Walking 
Netball leaves plenty more time for lots of 
laughter and fun. The game is proving a 
real ‘life changer’ and participants are not 
only seeing an improvement in their gen¬ 
eral fitness (including lower heart rates 
and blood pressure), but many have seen 
improvements with specific physical ail¬ 
ments and mental health too. 

Sessions are led by a fully trained Walk¬ 
ing Netball Host who will welcome you to 
the session and then take you through a 
gentle warm up and some basic skills. 
Every session involves an opportunity to 
play a full game of Walking Netball, relearn 
the rules and the positions before sitting 
down to grab a drink and have a natter! 

Still not convinced that Walking Netball 
is for you? Have a read of this; written by 
a participant of the Walking Netball ses¬ 
sion at Crewkerne. 

How I Overcame my Allergy to Sport 

Until recently I had a total aversion to 
sport, playing it or watching it. Memories 
of numb fingers and freezing, bare legs on 
the school hockey pitch, added to the 
shame of always being last to be picked 
for netball, put me off it for life. Once I left 


school I never felt the urge to participate 
in sport again and, at the age of 53,1 didn’t 
imagine that 1 ever would. All that 
changed recently when I discovered 
Walking Netball. I was persuaded into 
giving it a go by some friends but thought 
I would hate it as much as I did at school. 
Now I’m an addict and try never to miss 
a session. 

You don’t need to know anything about 
netball before you attend, all levels of fit¬ 
ness and expertise are catered for, and all 
ages and sizes are welcomed (I write as 
someone who is definitely built for com¬ 
fort not for speed). The age range of the 
group so far ranges from 20s to 70s. The 
objective is to get a bit fitter, have some 
fun and the score is always 12-12 at the 
end. It’s also very sociable and you’re wel¬ 
come to stick around for a cup of tea or 
coffee afterwards. 

So any ladies out there looking for a new 
way to get fit or meet new people, 
why not give it a go - you might surprise 
yourselves!

to Lyme 


THIS Is The Kit will play the Marine 
Theatre as the first date of an inter¬ 
national tour. The playful indie folk 
band led by Paris-based songwriter 
Kate Stables (pictured inset) - has 
earned the adoration of peers in¬ 
cluding Guy Garvey, The National 
and Sharon van Etten. In the last 
year This is the Kit have performed 
live in session on BBC 6music and at 
festivals including Glastonbury. 

The new album is on Rough Trade 
records, home to The Strokes and 
Jarvis Cocker; 'Moonshine Freeze' is 
undoubtedly their best to date, and 
is produced by John Parish (PJ Har¬ 
vey, M Ward). 

Moonshine Freeze is a beguiling 
mixture of musical sophistication 
and something more guileless - chil¬ 
dren's games, incantations and 
snatches of nursery rhymes. 

This Is The Kit play at the Marine 
Theatre on Thursday, January 11th at 
8pm. Tickets are £16, available to 
book at onine at www.marinthe-

MG ZS - the alternative to Santa’s sleigh! 


SCIENTISTS calculated that Santa 
Claus needs to deliver presents to 1.6 
billion children across the world - 
that’s a lot of space required in his 
sleigh, not to mention horsepower from 
his trusty reindeer. 

Thankfully, the rest of us have far 
fewer gifts to dispatch during the fes¬ 
tive season. So, while the MG ZS, MG’s 
newest Compact-SUV model, does not 
need to stack billions of gifts, there’s 
plenty of space if you’ve been more 
than generous this year. 

The MG ZS was launched last month 
(November 2017) and is already MG 
Motor UK’s fastest-selling vehicle. 
There’s no doubt that Santa will ap¬ 
prove: it offers a premium travelling ex¬ 
perience for driver and passenger alike, 
making it perfect for long journeys - 
even those under the 510 million kilome¬ 
tres that he will cover on Christmas Eve. 

The MG ZS has 55mm additional rear 
shoulder room and 80mm rear head- 
room compared to the average Com¬ 
pact-SUV and a huge 448 litres of boot 
capacity, which is 60 litres larger than 
the typical car in its class. There’s also 
a split-level boot that provides plenty of 
room for luggage, leisure equipment, 
food and drink, and, of course, those 
all-important presents. 

Santa will encounter all manner of 
weather conditions when he whizzes 
around the globe and the MG ZS can 
easily match the sleigh for endurance, 
having undergone MG Motor UK’s 


most rigorous test programme to date, 
involving more than one million hours 
and three million miles of strenuous 
structural integrity testing, coping 
with temperatures as low as -35C in 
Sweden as high as 42C in Spain. The 
Compact-SUV also delivered a strong 
performance at high altitudes. 

And, if Santa needs to reinvest in a 
new vehicle with a smooth and respon¬ 
sive gear box, the MG ZS is ideal: he 
can choose from a 1.5 DOHC VTI-tech, 
four-cylinder engine with five-speed 
manual gearbox, or a 1.0 GDI tur¬ 
bocharged, three-cylinder version of 


the engine, which complements the six- 
speed automatic gearbox option to pro¬ 
duce a fast-paced and dynamic ride. 

Crucially, the MG ZS comes with an 
industry-leading 7 year/80,000 miles 
warranty, one of the longest fully trans¬ 
ferable warranties in its class, as stan¬ 
dard. The warranty is an extension of 
the manufacturer warranty, providing 
customers with complete peace of 
mind. It also comes with the option of a 
six-year anti-perforation warranty, 
which covers against corrosion.

Buy an electric car and the savings 
could pay for Christmas 


MOTORISTS buying a 100% elec¬ 
tric car rather than a comparable 
diesel model could save enough 
money each year to cover the 
aveage family’s £645 Christmas 
expenditure, according to figures 
released by Go Ultra Low. Visi¬ 
tors to the updated www.goul- 
tralow.com website can now 
access a new cost calculator that 
demonstrates how much they 
can save by switching to a 100% 
electric car. 

By using its comprehensive 
range of vehicle comparison 
tools, Go Ultra Low found that 
100% electric cars can provide 
savings of around £600 per year 
on fuella and tax billslb. Com¬ 
bining this with just four London 
Congestion Charge-free trips a 
year3, the total annual saving ex¬ 
ceeds the £645 average cost of 
Christmas4, inclusive of food and 
drink, gifts and socialising dur¬ 
ing the festive period. 


The new Go Ultra Low cost cal¬ 
culator tools use the latest offi¬ 
cial (NEDC) vehicle test data and 
reflect the fact that pure electric 
and hybrid car drivers pay the 
lowest rates of VED - with no 
first year rate for 100% electric 
vehicles5. The tools also show 
that 100% electric cars cost, on 
average, 3p per mile to driver, 
compared to 9p for a comparable 
diesel vehicle. 

Poppy Welch, Head of Go Ultra 
Low, said: “Many drivers of 100% 
electric cars will have aleady cov¬ 
ered the cost of Christmas this 
year, thanks to the lower operat¬ 
ing costs of their cars. 100% elec¬ 
tric and plug-in cars are fast 
becoming a serious considera¬ 
tion for an increasing number of 
motorists, with more than al¬ 
ready over 125,000 on our roads. 

“By using the range of spe¬ 
cially-developed interactive tools 
at www.goultralow.com mo¬ 


torists can comare their petrol or 
diesel car side-by-side with the 
growing range of equivalent 
plug-in and 100% electric cars 
can find out for themselves how 
much they can save” 

Adding to the fuel and tax sav¬ 
ings, 100% electric cars often 
benefit from lower maintenance 
costs due to having fewer moving 
parts and less demand for con¬ 
sumables. Meanwhile, Govern¬ 
ment grants provide up to £4,500 
off the price of eligible 100% elec¬ 
tric cars, £2,500 off the price of el¬ 
igible plug-in hybrid cars, and up 
to £8,000 off the price of a new 
electric van. 

Further cost savings are avail¬ 
able too, as consumers can also 
benefit from up to £500 off the 
cost of installing an electric 
chargepoint at their home. To 
make commuting in a plug-in car 
even more viable, businesses can 
also take advantage of the Work¬ 


place Charging Scheme, which 
provides grants of up to £300 per 
charging socket. 

The new www.goultralow.com 
website provides motorists with 
a wide range of tailored informa¬ 


tion on a number of topics, in¬ 
cluding how much they could 
save with an electric car, how 
easy it is to charge at home, and 
how far a plug-in car can go on a 
single charge.

New Ford Focus RS Red Edition announced for Christmas 


FORGET Santa’s sleigh, the Focus RS 
Red Edition has been unveiled just in 
time for Christmas. 

The RS Red Edition will be a limited 
production run of just 300 cars in 
the festive colour scheme. In addition 
to its Race Red exterior, the Red 
Edition features grey brake callipers 
behind black-cast alloy wheels and 
the RS Edition’s trademark contrast¬ 
ing black roof, door mirrors and 
rear spoiler. 

The Focus RS Red Edition features 
a front mechanical Quaife limited-slip 
differential (LSD), providing even 
more traction and driving appeal for 
performance driving enthusiasts. It is 
available to order now through Ford 
dealerships, priced at £36,295, with 
production starting in February 2018. 

“The Focus RS Edition represents 
accessible performance at its finest”, 
said Andy Barratt, chairman and 
managing director, Ford of Britain. 
“As RS production nears its end, we 
wanted to celebrate with a limited 


run of cars for those who want to 
stand out as an RS fan.” 

The Focus RS Edition has been de¬ 
veloped by Ford Performance engi¬ 
neers and evaluated at locations 
across the globe to enhance the high- 
performance hatchback’s class-lead¬ 
ing traction and responsiveness using 
a Quaife LSD for the front axle. 

The mechanical LSD limits the en¬ 
gine torque delivered to a wheel that 
has reduced traction on the road sur¬ 
face, and redistributes torque to the 
wheel with more traction to counter¬ 
act the wheelspin that can hamper ac¬ 
celeration and stability. 

By controlling the torque delivered 
to each front wheel, the Focus RS Edi¬ 
tion’s Quaife LSD enables drivers to 
exploit the 350PS delivered by its 2.3- 
litre EcoBoost engine in high-perfor¬ 
mance driving situations even more, 
and seamlessly integrates with Focus 
RS driving technologies delivered as 
standard, including: 

• Ford Performance All Wheel 


Drive, which varies the front-to- 
rear torque distribution to suit the 
current driving situation - moni¬ 
toring inputs from vehicle sensors 
100 times per second and sending a 
maximum of 70 per cent of the 
drive torque to the rear axle 

• Dynamic Torque Vectoring - 
which uses electronically-con¬ 
trolled clutch packs on the rear 
axle to send up to 100 per cent of the 
available torque to either rear 
wheel, and can switch drive from 
one side to the other in as little as 
0.06sec 

• Torque Vectoring Control (TVC) - 
which automatically applies small 
amounts of brake force to limit 
wheelspin at the front axle 

“For hardcore driving enthusiasts, 
the additional mechanical grip of¬ 
fered by the Quaife LSD will make it 
even easier to carry speed through a 
corner on the track, and maximise ac¬ 
celeration on the way out. The new 
setup also delivers greater mechani¬ 


cal stability and control when brak¬ 
ing hard, and will help drivers set the 
car up for power-slides using Drift 
Mode,” Roeks said. “The Focus RS 
Edition takes our Tun to drive’ philos¬ 
ophy to a new level for an everyday 
road car.” 


The Focus RS Edition delivers drive 
modes that include the industry-first 
Drift Mode for controlled oversteer 
drifts under circuit conditions and 
Launch Control for ultimate perfor¬ 
mance off the start-line - accelerating 
from 0-62mph in just 4.7sec.

Faster gearshifts, more fun: Double clutch transmission in the MINI 


AS A brand well known for it’s 
sporty character, MINI is set to 
further enhance it’s reputation 
with the introduction of a new 
transmission to the range. Ex¬ 
tremely fast gear changes, a high 
degree of shift comfort and opti¬ 
mised efficiency - just some of the 
benefits of the new 7-speed Step- 
tronic automatic double clutch 
transmission available for the 
MINI 3-Door Hatch, MINI 5-Door 
Hatch and the MINI Convertible. 
Customers can now order this 
new transmission in conjunction 
with selected engine varients as 
an alternative to the standard 6- 
speed manual transmission. 

The double clutch transmission 
is operated by a newly designed 
electronic selector lever. Further 
enhancing the premium charch- 
taer of the vehicle, the new selec¬ 
tor lever always returns to its 
original position after changing 
between driving mode D, neutral 
position N and reverse mode. The 
parking lock is activated by press¬ 
ing the P button. S mode can be 
activated by shifting the selector 
lever to the left from position D, 
allowing the driver manual inter¬ 
vention. The electronic controller 
paired with the new double clutch 
transmission includes a shift 
strategy based on navigation data 
and supports both the engine 
start/stop function as well as 
coasting in order to reduce fuel 
consumption and emissions. 


Design principles 
The design principle of the dou¬ 
ble clutch transmission has been 
adapted directly from motor rac¬ 
ing. Just like on the race track, it 
allows MINI drivers to accelerate 
by enabling upward gearshifts 
without torque interruption. The 
driver can keep the accelerator 
pedel pressed down while the 
transmission control sets the shift 
points precisely - within just a 
fraction of a second the ideal en¬ 
gine speed is always available 
after the gearshift to ensure a con¬ 
tinuous increase in speed. 

This is possible due to the spe¬ 
cific structure of the double clutch 
transmission. It combines two par¬ 
tial transmissions in a single hous¬ 
ing. The core element of the system 
consists of two oil-cooled wet 
clutches: one of these is responsi¬ 
ble for the even transmission ra¬ 
tios (2, 4, 6) while the other is for 
the uneven ratios (1,3,5,7) and re¬ 
verse. During travel, one of the two 
clutches is open and the other is 
closed. They interact when the 
driver shifts up or down: opening 
one clutch activates closure of the 
second at the same time. 

Transmission control 
In order to have the appropriate 
gear ready for the next shift, the 
electronic control system of the 
new double clutch transmission 
permanently analyses the driver's 
intentions and the situation on the 
road. This analysis incorporates 


numerous data points, including 
the accelerator position, engine 
speed, road speed and MINI driv¬ 
ing mode. As a result, fast 
gearshifts can be made to respond 
appropriately to sudden changes. 
If acceleration has to be unexpect¬ 
edly interrupted, for instance, the 
double clutch transmission takes 
no more than a fraction of second 
to make the next gear down avail¬ 
able instead of the next gear up. 

The parallel opening and closing 
of the clutches makes acceleration 
and deceleration manoeuvres not 
just faster but also smoother. 
Acoustically, the gearshifts can 
only be perceived in the fast succes¬ 
sion of rev changes. There are no 
load change reactions as are com¬ 
mon with manual transmissions. 

Enhanced performance 

The increase in drive positions 
compared with the 6-speed man¬ 
ual transmission benefits both 
performance and comfort. The 
seven gear double clutch trans¬ 
mission enables a broader spread 
of gears, thereby reducing the dif¬ 
ferences in engine speed between 
the various drive positions. To¬ 
gether with the direct engine link 
that is characteristic of the double 
clutch transmission, the reduced 
rev jumps intensify driving fun 
when accelerating. This applies to 
automatic shifts in D and S modes 
as well as to manual interventions 
in the selection of drive positions 
in M mode. In S mode the 


gearshifts occur at increased en¬ 
gine speeds and with further in¬ 
creased shift dynamics. In S mode, 
the driver can also spontaneously 
switch to manual shifting. Here, 
manual gear selection is sequen¬ 
tial. The selector lever is briefly 
moved forward to shift down and 
raised slightly in order to move up 
to the next higher gear. 

In automatic mode, the system 
can be enhanced by linking the 
transmission control to the op¬ 
tional MINI Navigation System. 
The double clutch transmission 
control unit is then able to draw on 
navigation data to adapt its shift 
strategy to the road ahead. When 
approaching a sharp bend or junc¬ 
tion, for example, a downshift is 
made early in order to make use of 
the engine braking effect for decel¬ 
eration purposes. When passing 
through two bends in quick succes¬ 
sion, the drive position engaged 
after downshifting is maintained 
in order to avoid any unnecessary 
shifting and ensure the ideal gear 
is available for powerful accelera¬ 
tion on exiting the bend. 

Like a conventional converter 
system, the double clutch trans¬ 
mission also offers a crawl func¬ 
tion that enables smooth set-off 
without needing the drivier to 
touch the accelerator pedal, 
thereby increasing comfort when 
manoeuvring or in slow moving 
or queuing traffic. The dual-mass 
flywheel with integrated centrifu¬ 


gal pendulum develops its posi¬ 
tive effect when driving at low 
revs: it balances out rotational 
unevenness in the event of a sud¬ 
den torque request, thereby pro¬ 
moting vibrational and acoustic 
comfort when accelerating out of 
the low engine speed range. 

Optimised efficiency 

The 7-speed double clutch trans¬ 
mission electronic control system 
offers a wide range of progressive 
functions to increase the efficiency 
of the MINI. In order to avoid un¬ 
necessary consumption of fuel 
when stationary, the double clutch 
transmission also allows use of the 
engine start/stop function. 

In addition, the coasting func¬ 
tion is available in both the MID 


and GREEN driving modes. Here 
the drivetrain is decoupled as 
soon as the driver removes their 
foot from the accelerator pedal. 
This allows the MINI to roll along 
at idling speed - free of any engine 
braking effect, minimising fuel 
consumption. The coasting func¬ 
tion can be adapted more pre¬ 
cisely to the driving situation if 
the vehicle is fitted with the MINI 
Navigation System or Driver As¬ 
sistance Systems. If there is a need 
to apply the brakes based on navi¬ 
gation data or camera images, for 
example, because the MINI is ap¬ 
proaching a junction or another 
road user ahead, the coasting 
function is suppressed to make 
use of the engine braking effect.

All-new Nissan Micra’s 1.0-litre engine offers 
outstanding urban performance 


THE entry level 1.0-litre version 
of the all-new Nissan Micra is play¬ 
ing a key role in the hatchback’s 
sales success. 

Customers are clearly impressed 
with its perfect balance of urban 
performance and low running costs. 

The highly efficient 71PS three- 
cylinder unit has accounted for 
20% of orders across Europe since 
it went on sale earlier this year. 
However, that figure is forecast to 
rise even higher, to 23% by next 
March - the end of FY17. 

With approximately 46,000 new 
Micra sold, it means close to 10,000 
customers are already enjoying the 
1.0 engine’s frugal performance. 

Naturally aspirated, the engine is 
linked to a five-speed manual trans¬ 
mission. This powertrain results in 
official Combined Cycle fuel econ¬ 
omy of 4.6 litres/lOOkm and CO 2 
emissions of 103g/km when run¬ 
ning on 15 or 16-inch wheels. 

The 1.0-litre 71PS is one of three 
refined engines which available on 
the all-new Micra. The others are a 
0.9-litre 90PS three-cylinder turbo 


petrol and the 1.5-litre 90PS four- 
cylinder diesel. 

Offering a 71PS engine makes the 
Micra more accessible than ever be¬ 
fore. It extends Nissan’s coverage 
within the European B-hatchback 
segment to 65% of all vehicles sold. 

With more than half of all Euro¬ 
pean B-hatchback vehicles sold in 
the 61-100PS category, the Micra is 
perfectly positioned to meet the 
needs of small car consumers. 

The 1.0-litre 71PS engine is avail¬ 
able on three grades, from entry 
level Visia to mid-range Acenta. 

The new Nissan Micra is quite 
simply a revolution. It is a radical 
progression from the model it has 
replaced, and from the trio of 
highly successful superminis 
which date back to the Micra’s 
debut in Europe in 1983. 

Longer, wider and lower than 
ever before, the all-new Micra has 
been conceived, designed and engi¬ 
neered with European B-hatchback 
consumers’ requirements at the 
top of the agenda. 

And those who have already 


bought one are thrilled with it. 
Scores and comments posted via in¬ 
dependent reviews organisation 
Reevoo have revealed an impres¬ 
sive average of 8.8 out of 10. A third 
of reviewers have awarded their 
Micra top marks -10 out of 10. 

Key to the all-new Micra’s appeal 
is the car’s athletic and expressive 
exterior design, which moves the 
Micra name plate in a daring new 
direction. The contemporary look 
and premium feel continues inside, 
with a high-quality cabin that 
boasts two-tone soft-touch materi¬ 
als as standard across the range. 

With a wheelbase that’s 75mm 
longer than its predecessor, it fea¬ 
tures segment-leading interior 
space for front seat occupants. 

The all-new Micra is also a tech¬ 
nology leader, with a number of 
features which are not only new to 
the Micra but new to the segment. 
These include Intelligent Lane In¬ 
tervention, a safety system which 
gently corrects the Micra back on 
to the right path should it be re¬ 
quired. These advanced driver as¬ 


sistance technologies help the 
Micra to a four-star Euro NCAP 
rating (five stars in the UK). 

Also unique to Micra is the BOSE 
Personal audio system, which fea¬ 
tures speakers built into the 
driver’s head rest for an immersive 
360° sound experience. The new 
Micra is available with a wide 
range of personalisation options, 


allowing owners to modify the ex¬ 
terior and interior with premium 
components in a variety of stylish 
and contemporary colours. 

The new Micra is also a fantastic 
car to drive, with a dynamic perfor¬ 
mance that is the perfect balance 
between agility, excitement and the 
secure feeling that comes with con¬ 
fident and predictable handling.

Festive finals too close to call 


Misterton v Winsham Utd 
CORONATION CUP FINAL 

Boxing Day - 11am ko 
(at Axminster Town) 
TODAY’S Coronation Cup Final be¬ 
tween Misterton and Winsham 
United at Axminster Town FC on 
Boxing Day pitches together two 
South Somerset teams who are both 
looking to return to former glories. 

Misterton dominated the competi¬ 
tion, and the Perry Street League in 
general, in the period around the late 
80s and early 90s lifting the trophy 
on four occasions between 1986 and 
1991. 

The Missy side then was star-stud¬ 
ded with former Haselbury striker 
Andy Bell, who went on to feature 
for Yeovil Town and Exeter City, ter¬ 
rorising defences with some clinical 
finishing. 

Bell was the key to the most excit¬ 
ing of that quartet of victories in 1989 
with a hat-trick in the 5-3 win over 
Lyme Regis at Axminster. 

The Seasiders finished that game 
with nine-men after Ellis Hoole, an¬ 
other legendary PSDL striker, 
scored twice before being dismissed 
and he was accompanied by fteam 
mate and former Yeovil Town 
keeper Grant Northover. 

But it was Steve Day who scored 
the winner when Misterton last got 
their hands on the trophy two years 


later after a 1-0 win over Combe St 
Nicholas at Perry Street FC. 

Winsham United's pedigree in the 
festive final is less distinguished. 

The Winsh featured in the first 
ever final back in 1952-53 when they 
were hammered 5-0 by RASC Hound- 
stone. 

The Bakers Field side's most recent 
appearance was six years ago when 
they were beaten 3-0 by Lyme Regis 
at Millwey Rise' Cloakham Lawns 
Ground. 

A first ever Premier Division title 
in 2012-13 was swiftly followed by the 
break up of the team and they have 
threatened little since - until today. 

There's little indiction as to the out¬ 
come of this year's final in the sea¬ 
son's results so far. 

Both teams sit mid-table in the 
PSDL Premier Division and both ap¬ 
pear clear of the threat of a return to 
Division One. 

Misterton edged the league en¬ 
counter at their Unity Lane home 3- 
2 with goals from Jack Steer (2) and 
Harry Charles, while Ross Goodland 
scored twice for Winsham. 

Both teams are in decent form; 
Winsham have lost one of their last 
five while Misterton are on a run of 
five straight wins which have 
yielded 27 goals. 

Expect a blood and thunder local 
derby... 


Farway Utd v Way town Hounds 
DIVISION ONE CUP FINAL 

December 30th - 1.30pm ko 
(at Kingsbury Episcopi FC) 
THERE is sure to be a new name on 
the 63-year-old Division One cup. 

Netherbury-based Waytown 
Hounds are one of the Perry Street 
League's newer teams having been 
formed in 2008. Since then the club 
has made steady progress up 
through the divisions and are now in 
their third season in Division One. 

Along the way The Hounds have 
featured in seven cup finals winning 
twice; the now defunct Luso-Chard 
were beaten 4-2 in the John Fowler 
Cup in 2012 and Chard United Re¬ 
serves 2-0 in Reg Eglon competition 
a year earlier. 

Joe Carter, in his second season in 
charge, having succeeded club leg¬ 
end Mark Hughes as manager, has 
piloted his side to fifth spot in the 
table boosted by skipper Jon Legg's 
16 goals in 11 matches. 

Farway United's history is longer 
and subsequently more varied. 
Formed in 1935, the pinacle of their 
success in the PSDL came in the 
form of a Premier Division runners- 
up spot behind champions Lyme 
Regis in 2004-05. 

The previous season the team 
reached the Devon Intermediate Cup 
final for the first, and currently only, 


time in their history where they 
were well beaten 6-0 by the Ply- 
mouth-based Kevin Purdy Roofing 
team. 

Recent years haven't so kind to the 
Eastlee Park club as their first team 
suffered two relegations in the three 
seasons. 

But long serving manager Andy 
Baily has returned to the helm and 
the club is clearly on the up. 

Promotion from Division Two and 
triumphs in both the Tommy Tab- 
berer and Kenny Hodges cup finals 
last season clearly show Baily's boys 
don't freeze on the big occasion - this 
could be the deciding factor. 

This season Farway have held the 
upper hand in matches between the 
two clubs with a 2-2 draw at Nether- 
bury and Ben Fullick scoring four in 
a 4-2 home win. 

Jon Lee 

The East Devon club will hold a 
mark of respect before the game for 
Jon Lee who died recently at the age 
of 75. 

“Jon was 'Mr Farway' in the 
70s/80s. He was the one who got a 
gang together to dig our current 
pitch out of the bank with limited 
tools. 

“We may never have had our East¬ 
lee Park home if not for him,” said 
Farway chairman Steve Loud.
