    Welcome...

    appy New Year!

    Its hard to believe that its 2016 already and that this is

    our 5th issue. We continue to get lovely feedback from

    people about the magazine and how useful they find the

    local content. We were delighted to receive this email from a regular

    visitor to St Ives:

    As always we are keen to promote local fund-raising events and news and information from local charities and

    non-profit groups, so please get in touch before the 29th January if you have any information you would like the

    community to know about. There is no charge for inclusion of these items.

    In this issue we have another fantastic competition and the opportunity to win a 25 voucher to spend at The Old

    Foundry Chapel in Hayle. This is a wonderful space with vintage, artisan and specialist shops. Why not have a look

    at their website (www.oldfoundrychapel.co.uk) and take part in our competition (P12)?

    Please contact us with your thoughts and any ideas you have so that we can continue to

    improve St. Ives Local. We want to make each issue as interesting and entertaining as

    possible. We cant wait to see what 2016 brings.

    Wishing you all the best for the year ahead.

    Local News

    St Ives is home to thousands of holiday makers

    each year, but how many of them realise they may

    be rubbing shoulders with children from Belarus

    and Ukraine who are also enjoying the benefits of

    sun, sea and sand?

    On 26 April 1986 the worlds worst nuclear

    accident happened at the Chernobyl power

    plant when radiation spewed into the atmosphere

    contaminating Northern Ukraine and 70% of

    Belarus.

    The children of these countries still suffer from a

    daily drip feed of radiation that results in cancers.

    For twenty years the St Ives Link of the Chernobyl

    Childrens Life Line has been bringing groups of

    children to the town for a respite month. Fresh

    air and uncontaminated food boosts their immune

    systems and gives them and their families hope

    for their future.

    In June we will be hosting another group of

    children aged between 9 and 11. In this 30th

    Anniversary year we would like to bring a larger

    group than usual. We are looking for families to

    volunteer to host two children from 19 June

    17 July.

    If you think you would like to host, please

    contact Joan Packard for more information

    01736 797009. [email protected]

    Home and Garden

    Based in the heart of Cornwall, Parks Interiors in

    Truro have everything you need to create a warm

    and wonderful home or holiday let this winter

    time. Whether you want to start afresh this

    year with a kitchen revamp or dream bedroom

    makeover; they have a huge range of traditional

    and modern styles to choose from for every

    budget. Owner, Gary Parks, gives his tips on how

    to create a cozy and welcoming coastal style:

    Real wood finishes: The honeyed glow of real

    wood cabinets and furniture can transform a tired

    kitchen space into a warm gathering place or add

    a laid-back, rustic charm to any bedroom.

    Natural materials

    and hues: Combine

    this with elements of

    wicker, exposed stone,

    coastal creams and

    blues and painted

    surfaces to add

    layers of comfort and

    texture for a relaxing,

    lived-in look.

    Room with a view:

    If you are lucky enough

    to have a sea view, Parks can help you make

    the most of bringing the outside in, with

    complementing colours and design features to

    maximise natural light whilst retaining a warm

    and homely feel.

    Heat sources: Add a touch of luxury and

    authentic cottage charm with an Aga centrepiece,

    wood burner or underfloor heating to ensure thewood burner or underfloor heating to ensure the

    best combination of style and functionality.

    Planning a new interior space can seem a

    daunting process, with unusual alcoves, nooks,

    colours, styles, flooring and appliances to consider.

    Thats why Parks offer a free design visit, where

    their experienced design team can create the best

    solution for your space, lifestyle and personal taste.

    Visit the Parks Interiors showroom in Truro to see

    the full range of styles for yourself and book your

    Out and About

    St. Ives

    Wouldnt it be nice to see the beaches, streets

    and alleyways of St Ives empty of all visitors in high

    summer? The town would then show a traditional

    face to the world, a town that has changed little,

    but whose economy has completely transformed.

    The seine nets, luggers, fisherman, quarries and

    mines have been replaced by pleasure craft,

    bathers, crowded

    beaches and

    bustling streets.

    But wait, do we

    really want the

    town to be devoid

    of all visitors

    those who drive

    our present

    economy? Lets

    look back. In past

    times, the

    Downlong streets

    were busy. They

    bustled with

    large families filling the tiny cottages, and spilling

    out onto the cobbled streets to chat and gossip,

    children to play,

    nets to mend,

    memories

    to share.

    A romantic

    image, perhaps,

    but lets not

    forget, they

    were really

    hard times.

    The mines

    were closing.

    Fishing was a

    dangerous and precarious living. Families lived

    hand to mouth, and our beautiful harbour would

    have been dirty and smelly. One far-sighted

    entrepreneur thought he would like to build a

    hotel close by the harbour, but his ambitions were

    defeated when he realised that the smell would

    deter his guests.

    We wish to portray, through images, the town as

    it was and as it is now.

    large families filling the tiny cottages, and spilling

    The project has

    thrown up

    some

    interesting

    anomalies. One

    is the fact that

    Downlong

    now consists

    mostly of

    holiday accommodation and where do the

    dustbins and recycling bags fit into our picturesque

    street images? Motor transport does not create

    the same romantic images as pony and traps.

    A walk from

    Porthminster

    Beach,

    through

    Downlong,

    around the

    harbour,

    along

    Porthminister

    Beach, up

    the Stennack,

    through Ayr and Penbeagle, and on to the mining

    area, allows further perusal of our wondrous

    town. St Ives is now considered to be a top

    international holiday destination, and our beaches

    regularly feature in best of publications, together

    with our award-winning restaurants. Who would

    want to holiday elsewhere?

    Family Time

    I Love You Because

    On a big piece of paper write I Love You

    Because and then ask every member of your

    family to write 5 reasons they love each person.

    For example, Mum I love you because you take

    me to swimming club every Saturday even though

    youd rather be drinking tea in bed.

    You could either have a separate piece of paper

    for each person or one piece of paper and a

    different colour pen for each person.

    Heart Footprints

    For the salt dough you will need:

    1 cup of salt

    1 cup of flour

    1/2 cup water

    Instructions

    Put all the ingredients in a bowl and mix well with

    a fork until it comes together in a ball. It will be

    similar in consistency to play dough. Add more

    water if you think it needs it.

    Flatten or roll the dough and cut out in to a large

    heart. If you want to hang it then add one or two

    holes near the top.

    Put parchment paper on a baking tray and place

    the heart on top of the paper.

    Next, put the heart on the floor and ask your

    child to place their foot on each side of the heart.

    Gently press down on their foot to make an

    impression. If you have two children then they

    could have a side each for their footprint.

    Using a blunt knife, carve their names above their

    footprints.

    Bake at about 200F (or 100C) for 3 hours.

    Check to see if its dry. If its still a little moist in

    the centre, turn it upside down and bake until it is

    completely dry.

    Take out your baked heart and let it cool. Once

    its fully cooled, you can paint it.

    Let it dry completely, then display it or wrap it up

    as a very special gift.

    Spread the love this February with

    arts and craft ideas for the family.

    I Love You This

    Much Valentines

    Card

    1. Trace your childs hand onto colourful

    card, then cut out two copies.

    2. Cut out a strip of card about 1 inch wide

    and 12 inches long and fold it accordion

    style.

    3. Use letter rub-ons or write the words

    I Love You on the outside of the left

    hand, and This Much on the strip of

    paper. On the other hand you can write a

    message to the person you are giving it to.

    4. Glue the ends of your accordion strip

    on the insides of the hands and your card

    is done.

    friends in search of a British inspired,

    simple, durable classic watch for both

    men and women. With this in mind, the

    brand continues to create timeless and

    quality watches which are set apart

    an array of colours from bright pastels,

    to neutral browns and blacks as well as

    stainless steel Milanese straps in silver,

    rose gold, gold or black PVD.

    The St Ives watch is inspired by the

    beautiful seaside town of St Ives, taking

    inspiration from the scenic coastline.

    The all-black watch face features an

    innovative strap mechanism, allowing the

    wearer to choose between a variety of

    Shore Projects St. Ives Inspired Watch

    St Ives Farmers Market

    Where are you from / how long have you

    lived here?

    I was born in St. Ives and have lived here

    almost all my life.

    Where are your plants grown?

    I have greenhouses and a poly tunnel just

    outside St. Ives.

    Have you always been a gardener?

    My family have always been gardeners and so

    it seemed natural to continue. I would describe

    my business as a small nursery as I grow all the

    plants myself and sell them at the market.

    How long have you been at St Ives

    Market?

    I started about a year after it began, so 5/6

    years ago.

    Why is the market important to you?

    The market is essential for me and my business

    as it is where I sell my plants as I dont have

    a specific outlet. I also have a stall at the

    craft market here on a Wednesday at the

    Guildhall each week.

    What plants do you sell?

    Mostly succulents but also herbs, shrubs,

    perennials, basket and pot plants.

    Describe your yearly cycle.

    I start selling mid-February with my main selling

    point being April but I attend markets until the

    end of the year. I sow and propagate all year

    round because I have the polytunnels and the

    greenhouse.

    Give us some tips on succulents.

    Succulents like a well-drained compost. They

    dont like to sit in

    water. They like

    to be warm and

    dry. Some types,

    if outside, need

    to be protected from frost so you can use a

    horticultural fleece which allows light in but

    frost out.

    When are you at the markets?

    I am at the markets each week on Wednesday

    and Thursday, from February half term.

    Featured Stallholder:

    Rebecca Astrinsky from Roseveor Plants.

    The BBCs Great Pottery Throwdown finished in

    December after its first successful series.

    Like Bake Off, it has helped the British public to

    understand more about the creation of artisan

    products, whether thats a sourdough loaf or a

    set of stackable breakfast bowls.

    Since the series ended many viewers have been

    eager to try pottery making for themselves. So

    if youre thinking of joining a class, what are the

    basic things you should know before you start?

    Its messy!

    The two essential ingredients when making

    pottery are clay and water combine that with

    a wheel that spins your wet clay object around,

    and you get the picture. Be prepared to wear old

    clothes and shoes, cut your nails, tie back your

    hair and bring an apron that covers from the

    chest down!

    Its not all about the wheel

    There are two different methods for making

    objects out of clay, hand-building and wheel

    throwing. You can use hand-building techniques

    to create a pinch pot by making rolls of clay and

    combining them into a single shape. Alternatively

    make a slab pot by rolling the clay into flat slabs

    to create a square or rectangular shape.

    The expression throwing comes from the way

    the clay is thrown onto the centre of a flat,

    spinning tray (the potters wheel) and squeezed

    into shape as it revolves at speed. Youll need

    quite a lot of strength in your hands to do this, as

    well as patience to cope with those early failures!

    Its slow

    When an object is first made it is loaded with

    water and must be thoroughly and evenly dried

    out before it is fired. Thats a minimum of a

    week for freshly made (or green) objects to

    become kiln ready.

    Its a scIence as well as a craft

    A pottery oven (kiln) is not the same as a

    domestic oven and an apprentice potter will

    need to learn how clay and glazes react when

    heated to high temperatures.

    The process of heating clay and glazes to reach

    their optimal point of melting is usually achieved

    over two steps. Bisque firing is the first stage,

    where unglazed pots are heated just enough for

    them to be able to take the glaze that will give

    them their final, glossy finish. Once glazes have

    been applied the pots go back into the kiln for

    the glaze firing.

    It needs space and Investment

    Once youve learned all you can in class and

    decide to go it alone, youll need to find space

    for your hobby. Consider where youll put the

    wheel and the kiln, where youll paint and glaze

    your pots and where you can leave them to dry.

    The equipment can be costly expect to spend

    between 600 and 2,000 on a potters wheel

    and 1,000-4,000 on a kiln, and thats without

    all the accessories and materials youll need to

    make the pots themselves.

    Once again, the BBC has opened our eyes to a

    craft that has been largely overlooked in recent

    years. The Great Pottery Throwdown may not

    eventually prove as successful as The Great

    British Bake-Off, but at least it has helped us to

    understand the skill, passion and commitment

    required to make a simple pottery object that

    can be used and enjoyed for years.

    Hobbies

    Has the Great Pottery

    Throwdown fired you up?

    The sciencey bit.

    What type are you?

    Gardening successes

    and failures can depend

    - among other things -

    on soil type, of which

    there are three main

    types: +sandy, silty or

    clay. To test yours,

    make a ball of moist

    soil from your garden,

    pinch the soil between

    your fingers. Does it

    feel gritty (sandy) soapy

    (silty) or sticky (clay)? Roll the ball into a sausage.

    Does it hold its shape? Sand generally cracks and

    falls apart quite easily whereas silty and clay soils

    will produce a firm sausage shape. Finally try to

    join the ends of the sausage together to form

    a ring. Again, a gritty sandy soil will be hard to

    shape and even silty soils will be difficult. If your

    soil circle holds its shape, the chances are it is

    likely to be a clay soil.

    Sandy soils are great for plants that require good

    drainage, such as Mediterranean plants, lavenders,

    herbs and alpines but these soils can lose nutrients

    fairly quickly and love the addition of some good

    organic matter like homemade compost. Silty

    soils generally have a good mix of both sand and

    clay and is a fairly easy soil to dig and work with.

    Clay soils are rich in nutrients and will benefit

    from the addition of good homemade compost

    or grit. Plants that require extra moisture will be

    more than happy in your garden. Once you have

    established your soil type, success is only a few

    spades away.

    The Fun bit.

    Free plants.

    Who doesnt love free stuff? Dividing up well

    established plants is about the easiest method

    of plant propagation and can be done with

    a huge range of clump forming, carpeting or

    grassy plants. Not only do you get plants for

    free but it increases the health and vigour of

    the plant. The best time to lift and divide plants

    is either late autumn or right now, very early

    spring. First, using a spade or fork, carefully

    lift the plants while protecting the roots and

    shake of excess soil. Depending on the size of

    the plant, it can be divided with either a knife,

    a spade or two garden forks placed back to

    back prizing the root ball apart. Ensure with

    each piece of plant there is sufficient root and

    The eco bit

    Start to compost

    A new year;

    a new start.

    Make this

    the year you

    make your

    own compost.

    Gardens of

    all sizes and

    all soil types

    will benefit

    from your

    own home

    produced compost. Simply select a container,

    whether its a purpose bought compost bin or

    repurposed pallets or timber. Choose a sunny

    spot in your garden as the heat will help break

    down and speed up your composting. The

    secret is not to let it get either too wet or too

    dry. Your compost bin is a living thing. Maybe

    start with a thick layer of grass cuttings or kitchen

    waste. You can buy a compost activator to

    help speed up the process and with a garden

    fork turn your compost with every couple of

    months but eventually compost will do what

    compost does best compost. Compost bins

    love: grass cuttings, raw fruit and vegetable

    fresh growth and simply replant or pot on the

    divisions. Dig in a good quality compost and add

    feed to the replanted freebies. Why not see

    what your friends and neighbours have and start

    a local plant swap?

    This mildly spiced curry thickened with

    red lentils and spinach will make a

    refreshing change for a family meal after all

    the traditional food over the festive season.

    Serve with a cooling cucumber and mint

    yoghurt and some warmed naan bread for

    a really filling mid-week supper.

    Serves 4

    Ready in 55 minutes

    Ingredients:

    2 tbsp oil

    600g lean lamb steaks, cut into chunks

    1 garlic clove, peeled and crushed

    1 large onion, peeled and chopped

    6 tbsp balti curry paste

    75g red split lentils

    400g can chopped tomatoes

    200g baby spinach leaves

    2 tbsp chopped fresh coriander

    Boiled basmati rice and lemon wedges to

    serve

    Heat half the oil in a large heavy-based

    pan over a medium-high heat. Add half

    the lamb pieces and fry for 3-4 minutes,

    turning occasionally until browned and

    sealed all over. Remove the lamb with a

    slotted spoon and set aside. Add the rest of

    the oil and fry the rest of the lamb pieces in

    the same way.

    Add the onion and garlic (and a splash

    more oil, if needed) and fry over a

    medium heat, stirring occasionally for 3-4

    minutes, then stir in the curry paste and fry

    for a further minute until fragrant. Return

    the meat to the pan and stir to coat in the

    curry paste.

    Stir in the chopped tomatoes, 300ml

    cold water and the lentils. Reduce the

    heat then cover and simmer for about 30

    minutes, or until the lentils are soft and the

    meat is tender. Season to taste with salt

    and freshly ground black pepper.

    Stir in the spinach and coriander.

    Cover and cook for a further 2-3

    minutes until the spinach has just wilted.

    For a spicier flavour replace the balti

    curry paste with one that has a little more

    heat such as Madras. Adding some finely

    chopped red chilli when frying the onion

    will also boost the heat factor!

    Book Review

    By Alice Harandon:

    manager of St. Ives Bookseller

    Exposure by Helen

    Dunmore

    ISBN 9780091953942

    Hutchinson 16.99

    Set in 1960, this is a

    slow burning Cold War

    thriller. Spy fever fills

    the newspapers and

    when a highly sensitive

    file goes missing, Simon

    Callington is accused of

    passing information to the Soviets, and is

    arrested. His wife suspects that his

    imprisonment is part of a cover-up.

    Fearing that she too is in danger she

    believes she must fight to protect her

    children. But what she does not realise is

    that Simon has hidden vital truths about his

    past, and may be found guilty of another

    crime that carries with it an even greater

    penalty. This is an entertaining, involving

    and very readable story: Dunmore cleverly

    interweaves each of the characters stories

    so that as the tale unfolds. It has the chilling

    ring of absolute authenticity.

    Murder of a Lady:

    A Scottish Mystery

    by Anthony Wynne

    ISBN 9780712356237

    British Library Crime

    Classics 8.99

    Duchlan Castle is a

    gloomy, forbidding

    place in the Scottish

    Highlands. Late one

    night the body of Mary

    Gregor, sister of the laird of Duchlan, is

    found in the castle. She has been stabbed

    to death in her bedroom - but the room is

    locked from within and the windows are

    barred. The only tiny clue to the culprit is

    a silver fishs scale, left on the floor next to

    Marys body. Anthony Wynne wrote some

    of the best locked-room mysteries from

    the golden age of British crime fiction. This

    cunningly plotted novel - one of Wynnes

    finest - has not been reprinted since 1931,

    and is long overdue for rediscovery! A

    perfect read for a dark January night

    The Snow Queen

    by Hans Christian

    Anderson and

    illustrated by

    Sanna Annukka

    ISBN 9780091959005

    Hutchinson 9.99

    A young girl must

    travel to find her

    childhood friend who,

    unbeknownst to her,

    has been spirited away

    by the Snow Queen.

    Seven tales ensue in which we follow

    Gerdas adventures in her search for Kay.

    Hans Christian Andersens magical tale of

    friendship and adventure is retold through

    the beautiful and intricate illustrations of

    Finnish-English illustrator Sanna Annukka.

    A frosty, cloth-bound gem!

    Well hello! Im Scamp and I arrived at

    the Centre with my sibling as sadly our

    previous owner was too poorly to look after

    us anymore. I am an 11 year old terrier. I am

    a lovely chap and very loving and will accept

    lots of fuss but I also have a cheeky terrier side

    too! Despite being of a more mature age. I will

    still need a decent amount of exercise and like

    being out and about having a good sniff and

    being nosey! I would prefer if someone was at

    home with me for most of the day - I would

    be able to live with children and possibly other

    dogs and cats. Im a bit nervous with loud

    noises and can be a bit of fussy with food

    and I will need to continue with my basic

    training for recall and will need a refresher

    on house training. I can also be a bit vocal

    on meeting people but its just my way of

    saying hello!

    About me

    Breed: Terrier

    Gender: Male

    Age: Over 10 years

    Age of Children in Family: Under 12
