    Our Private Care Service carers can come to your house and help to prepare fresh, ready made or light meals. This help can form part of a tailored package of care that could help you stay in your own home for longer, rather than going into a care home before its really needed. We can assist those who need help due to frailty, disability or illness to live as independently as possible, with comfort and dignity, in their own home.

    Welcome tothe village directory

    Hi everyone,

    Its Chocolate time! Just as Ive managed to knock off a few of the pounds I gained at Christmas, Easter arrives with all the temptation of chocolate. When I was young I was fussy about the fl avours and types I enjoyed but these days, in my more mature years, my taste has broadened to the point where any chocolate is a delight, whether its milk or plain, with almost anything in the centre (not Turkish Delight!) I will put my feet up and enjoy a moment or two in that world where the Cadburys Flake girl used to stroll (now Im showing my age!).

    Anyway enough of that, theres far more to Easter than chocolate, its the begining of spring and hopefully the weather will refl ect that. Its time to clear out those cupboards, spring clean, decorate or, weather permitting, begin to tackle the garden. Im sure we will all be busy bees in one way or another, whether your focus is on social or domestic activities youll fi nd ideas and help within these page. Why not check out some of our new advertisers.

    Have a great Easter ~ DebbieT: 01233 720488 e: info@thevillagedirectory.co.ukw: www.thevillagedirectory.co.uke: events@thevillagedirectory.co.uk

    TheGarden Shed

    April By Jo ArnellDo you remember last April? The month they forecasted the drought that turned into a deluge? Humans (and that includes gardeners) fi nd unexpected weather diffi cult, to say the least, and if we fi nd it hard to cope with, think about the plants. That poor Lavender; basking in the early spring sunshine, happily anticipating a long hot dry summer, only to be drowned out for months. Or what about Hostas? They must have been relieved that the drought that never happened didnt happen - until the slugs and snails came back. Light and temperature levels were so low last year that many crops refused to ripen, and weeds were left to romp about unchecked, because it was too cold and wet to do much gardening.

    We must be more ready this year. But for what? Drought? Floods? Hurricanes? Yes probably. Unpredictable weather is hard to prepare for, but there are a few things we can do to lessen the damage:

    - While the soil is still damp its a good idea to mulch the borders to prevent excess moisture loss and help stop the weeds. Stake

    plants against stormy, windy weather and do it early, before they put on too much top growth. That way theyll hide the supports as they grow up through them.

    - Grow Mediterranean plants in pots so that they dont get waterlogged and perhaps make a water retaining bog garden for all those that like to have their feet in damp soil.

    - Step up the slug patrol. Last years excessive rain made manna for molluscs - they will have multiplied and massed their ranks, so prepare for battle. Grow more annuals, as they only have to last a season and dont have to try and eke it out through a hard winter. Use hardy old favourite plants more creatively, rather than gambling with more tender, fussy perennials.

    So come hell and high water, or hell and no water, this year lets try to make the best of things. Gardeners are good at that, and if we fail again, well, theres always next year.
