    Mothers Day already! Life doesnt come with a manual. It comes with a mother is

    an old saying which springs to mind at this time of the year. We all need help in finding our way through all the various ups and downs of life, and there, right from day one has been that wonderful (sometimes), smiling (often) and loving (always) lady we are proud to call Mum.

    This month, we include several mum-related features and

    also look towards Easter, fast approaching at the end of the month. Our ever-popular Community Matters section seems to be bursting with news about mums raising money for various charities and schemes, which just makes me feel so proud to live in a small town where so many selfless individuals are forever thinking of others, and how they can be helped.

    Finally, from all of us mums, thanks in advance for the flowers, chocolates, perfume and big hugs, as we try our hardest without a manual!

    Welcome to our March edition...

    Claire x

    John

    Let me just add my little offering, amongst all this Mothers Day malarkey. By the time a

    woman eventually realizes that her mother was always right, she has a daughter who thinks that shes always wrong!

    Another month, another issue, bulging with information and advice. Read about health issues, money-related and legal matters, computer scams, overseas destinations where you can tie the knot, how to join a

    male-voice choir, bake an Easter treat or even train to become a teacher. Our school spotlight features Bourne Abbey Nursery, Rex Needle relates rifle-range reminiscences and Dena Edis is in the Hot Seat. Variety is indeed the key!

    A continuing big thank-you to those who have contacted us over recent weeks, thanking us for information and advice given, but especially the tradesman who received three enquiries for potential work, within hours of Discovering Bourne hitting the doormat.

    MARY, THE MOTHER OF JESUS.The Virgin Mary has long been depicted as a caring mother and a role model for everyone. She also plays an important role throughout Christian history in providing us with a female thats right at the heart of events. Christianity, after all, can be a fairly male-dominated affair.

    ROSE KENNEDY She buried five of her nine children, raised a president, (John F. Kennedy), two U.S. senators, and presided over one of the most famous families in American history-all with elegance and dignity. I looked on child-rearing not only as a work of love and duty but as a profession that was fully as interesting and challenging as any honourable profession in the world, Kennedy once said. When she died in 1995, at the age of 104, she had 28 grandchildren and 41 great-grandchildren.

    MARIE CURIE - With her husband, Pierre, Marie Curie was the pioneer in researching radioactivity. When he died suddenly, she refused a government pension and instead, took his place as a professor at the University of Paris. She was awarded a Nobel Prize for her work, then became the first person to win a second Nobel Prize, and she is the only Nobel Prize winner who is also the mother of another Nobel Prize winner, Irne Joliot-Curie.

    MOTHERS DAY is the one day when we take time to express our love and gratitude for the

    women who have devoted their lives to making ours safe and happy. Some have been famous, most

    are not, but all have been, and continue to be, special.

    DEMI MOOREOne of Hollywoods highest-paid actresses, the sassy Moore has combined her acting and business careers with a highly publicized role as a mother. Moore and ex-husband Bruce Willis have three daughters, Rumer, Scout, and Tallulah. Moore doesnt go it alone, however. She is known for travelling with a substantial entourage, including nannies and personal trainers.

    QUEEN ELIZABETH, THE QUEEN MOTHER In 1923, Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon married the second son of King George V and was the first commoner to legally marry into the royal family in several centuries. Their daughters, Elizabeth and Margaret, were born in 1926 and 1930, respectively. When Elizabeth refused to leave England during the London Blitz in World War II, even enduring the bombing of Buckingham Palace, her spirit was an inspiration to many who continued to hold her in high regard until her death at the age of 101 in March 2002.

  • As our countrys much-lamented linguistic prowess continues its decline, alongside our apparent lusting for ever more adventurous foreign foods, there comes a point when action will be needed. No surprise then, that the Co-operative, (Remember Its all at the Co-op now?) has collaborated with the Oxford English Dictionary to identify the top twenty most commonly mispronounced foreign foods, and provide a definitive guide. The Co-op has launched a training guide for its staff to assist customers, alongside shelf signs and notices at the check-out to help customers with the names.

    There is a cautionary maxim, If you cant pronounce it, dont eat it, by which some diffident individuals seem to live their lives. Hopefully, the list taken from the Co-op guide and shown here, will encourage more people than ever before to discover the delights of, for instance, French fish stew, (Bouillabaisse), or Peruvian-style fish cured in citrus juice, (Ceviche).

    What this guide does not go near, however, is the most intractable, and altogether British, dispute of them all: Is it scone, to rhyme with con, or scone to rhyme with cone?

    Bourne2play raised the fantastic sum of 3,073.90 towards new play equipment on the Wellhead in Bourne at a charity band night on Saturday January 30th. Over two hundred guests danced along to covers band, Children of the Revolution, and enjoyed fish and chips provided by Georges Fish Bar. A raffle was held, with fabulous prizes donated by The Range Hair and Beauty, Burghley House, Adrian Dewey Photographers,

    The Bull in Rippingale and Toft Golf Club. Anna Rogers, chairperson for Bourne2Play said: The band was amazing and everyone said how much they enjoyed the evening. Id like to say a big thank-you to those who supported the night buying tickets, helping with the organisation and donating prizes to the raffle.

    Bourne2Play has now raised 68,000 towards new play equipment and is calling on local businesses and charities

    to help meet the remainder of the 116,000 needed to install a brand new play park. Anna Rogers said: Wed like the park to be installed this year, but we have still got 48,000 to go. What we need now is for local businesses and charities to pull together to help make the new play park a reality.

    heidis New Battle heres how to helpBourne Rugby Club is hosting a Ladies Day on Easter Saturday, March 26th. This is a fun event for all the family in aid of Cancer Research. The highlight of the day will be a game of Touch rugby between Team Heidi versus The Rest of the World at 11am.

    Less than five years ago, Bourne lady, Heidi Rock, was diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of thirty-one, she underwent a full range of surgical, chemo- and radiotherapy treatments and was cancer-free for a while. At the start of 2016, however, Heidi was told that the illness had returned and she is now starting more treatment and another fight. In between the two, she had been very healthy and had been part of the ladies Bourne Rugby keep-fit initiative, since its start over a year ago. Now, the mother of Katie (13) and Laura (11) is facing her biggest challenge yet, and this special day will be a chance

    for everyone in the area to show their support for Heidi.

    Team Heidi is an invitational side, but anybody is welcome to

    play for the Rest of the World, no matter what their age or experience.

    The purpose of the day is to get lots of women and girls (any age) playing a fun, non-contact sport. It will also, hopefully, raise awareness and lots of money for a charity, very close to all of our hearts.

    If youd like to play, donate, support or help to organise on the day, please get in touch with Mark Thomas, Bourne Rugby Club, on 07708352202, or at M@rkt.me.uk .

    Tell your mum, daughter and sister! See you on the 26th.

    thank youDear Editor

    Although it is quite a while since the Christmas issue of your magazine was published, I am writing to thank you for including the foodbank article. It was so poignant at that special time of year. We really hope that it made an impact and some of the new clients were as a result of that article.

    Thank you again

    charity curry casserole Lunch creates cash St Barnabas hospice in Bourne has benefitted to the tune of 1687 from a recent charity Lunch, held at Bourne abbey church hall. This amazing achievement came as a result of two couples, Yvonne and Taff Roberts, and Sue and John Fordham, harnessing the enthusiasm of several other willing volunteers to help with the lunch, along with a host of local businesses who donated a range of items to be auctioned and also raffle prizes. The inspiration for this fund-raising came from the recent tragic losses to cancer of close friend, Ashley Woolf, along with Sues father, the late and much-respected builder and fireman, Don Gelsthorpe.

    Yvonne wishes to express her gratitude to everyone who contributed in any way, either from helping make the lunch happen, donating anything or by just being part of what was one fabulous and memorable afternoon.
