Hampshire Federation of Womens Institutes

It was a rather dull and damp afternoon on November 5th when our members arrived for our meeting. We weren’t sure what to expect from our talk as life on or under the sea was as unknown to us as would be life on Mars! ...

Medstead Bowls Club

The good weather that we enjoyed in September and October continued into November and some of our hardier members are still using the main outdoor green at almost every roll-up session. The weather also ensured continuing good turnouts of volunteers at our work parties and almost all the jobs that we try to do before winter sets in, such as hedge trimming and gardening, are now complete. ...

Lasham Gliding Society

The Deputy Chairman, Mike Philpott, as asked me to send the programme of Winter Talks which are held at Lasham throughout the winter months every year. There is something for everyone, flying or non-flying, in the programme, and those with an interest in aviation of any kind will also appreciate some of the more specialised sessions. General subjects range from Historical Murder Most Foul, to the History of Lasham Airfield to a Classical Guitar recital – and having heard this one before, I can recommend it !! ...

What a mild November. It has allowed me to get on with clearing a herbaceous border and replanting it. I do not do this very often but when I found I had lost a delphinium in the crush of plants and my phlox were looking very woody I decided to have a clear out. Most of my alstroemerias are still flowering but the one in this border flowers in mid summer and then leaves a great gap for the rest of the year. It was such a large gap that I bought four plants from Ray on the market to fill the space. It had to go! I have dug it all out, or I hope I have. The roots have gone down over a spade’s depth. They are supposed to like good drainage but mine like to get down to the soggy clay. You dig them out and they are glistening with water. Luckily the newer alstroemerias will flower all summer and come in all sizes. The very small ones are perfect for the front of a border, some only six inches high. Just pull the dead stems out and they will quickly fill the space with new shoots. I cannot think of many plants that flower for such a long time. They last for ages when picked. This is one plant with spreading habits that your friends will welcome. ...

Last month I mentioned diseased Larch trees at Chawton Park Woods. A large number have now been felled and walking though the woods in early November, there appears to be more surface water than usual. Trees soak up a large amount of water, and a mature Oak can absorb 454 litres of water in one day. Smaller trees similar to the Alder are able to absorb up to 6000 litres of water in a month, so it seems sensible to consider tree planting in areas susceptible to flooding. ...

Bentworth Mummers – The Three Musketeers

Mummers The Villager

The Three Musketeers – le panteau – by Richard Lloyd This panto follows the basic story of the three musketeers and it’s set in France but there is so much more to it. It’s very funny and has a tongue in cheek view of the French – English relationship. ...
