Here, at Discovering Magazines weve taken a look at some famous mothers, see our feature on page four to find out more. </p><p>After that excitement weve then got Easter to look forward to; its early this year, so youve probably been seeing Easter Eggs on the shelves since Christmas! Saying that, my daffodils have been out since January and now my iris and tulips are beginning to appear so maybe spring is early too! Easter means many different things to many people; for some, its about chocolate and bank holidays, but for many its to celebrate the </p><p>resurrection of Christ, and the many churches in March will be holding special services to do just this. The Easter services can be found on page thirty-six.</p><p>Believe it or not, its school holiday time again so, if you are looking for some inspiration, make sure you look at our Event Diary which is once again packed full of places to go and attractions to visit, not just in the school holidays but throughout the month. If you manage to visit any of the places we mention, then wed love to hear what you thought about it, and if you could send some photos in too that would be even better. </p><p>In fact, Id just love to hear from you, so if youve visited somewhere great, had a great experience eating out locally or if there is just a local issue that youd like to get off your chest, then e-mail me at</p><p>Becky x</p><p>With thanks to...Jennifer Lawler, Eamonn Dorling, Eileen Le Voi, Fraser Dawbarns, Dack Pearson Solicitors, March and District Museum, March Podiatry, The Light Cinema, Trevor Bevis, Steve Barclay, Ellis Winters and Skylark Garden Centre</p><p>Cover photo by Neil Foster</p><p>The copy deadline for the April edition of Discovering March is March 9th, please email look forward to hearing from you!</p><p>4 Mums the Word6 Gardening Skylark Garden Centre</p><p>9-10 Community Matters12 Prince Energy14 Consumer Advice18 A word from your MP Steve Barclay</p><p>20-21 Boundary Disputes - Fraser Dawbarns</p><p>23 Wiltshire Farm Foods24 Food Simnel cake recipe24 Club Guide26 Legal Corner27 Museum Mail Train Incident</p><p>28 Club Spotlight Breathe Easy Fenland</p><p>30 Property page Buy to Let Investors</p><p>32 Health Counselling to Help Mums</p><p>34-36 Event Diary 38 History of March40 Finance Trusts41 March in the Past March42 Film New Releases 43 Puzzle page44-45 Directory46 Easter</p></li><li><p> March 2016 | D I S C O V E R I N G March 3</p><p>With thanks to...</p><p>61 HIGH STREET MARCH PE15 9JJ BOOKING: 01354 650551EMAIL:</p><p>BIRTHDAY BOY MATTON THE DRUMS</p><p>LIKE US ON FACEBOOK OR VISIT OUR WEBSITE FOR MORE INFORMATIONLIKE US ON FACEBOOK OR VISIT OUR WEBSITE FOR MORE</p><p>Georges-March Georges March Georges</p><p></p><p>Coming up in April: 2ND - THEM NERVES 9TH - WHISKEY TWIST 16TH - LIZZY ON THE LOOSE 22ND - BONDY 23RD - DAVID BOWIE TRIBUTE BAND 24TH - THE WILLOW FESTIVAL 24TH - GEORGES FAYRE 30TH - GUNS AND ABBA</p><p>coming up in MarchMarchMARCH</p><p>05</p><p>MARCH</p><p>25</p><p>MARCH</p><p>19</p><p>Sunday roastsnack bucket</p><p>Willow Fest</p><p>GeorgesPie &amp; Mash</p><p>Thirsty Thursday</p><p>RETURN TO GEORGES</p><p>ZELDA</p><p>KARAOKE &amp;TAPAS</p><p>EVENING</p><p>The soulfulvoice of</p><p>REGGAE THROUGHTHE EASTER BREAK</p><p>EASTERFRIDAY</p><p>EASTERSATURDAY</p><p>GEORGESLAUNCH ITSFIRST WEEKLYOPEN MICEVENINGS</p><p>WITH LAURANOF "GEORGES</p><p>LITTLE ANGELS" !!</p><p>a mid week chill session withfellow musicians, part of theWillow Fest Tour.

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. </p><p>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.</p><p>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.</p><p>MOTHERS DAY is the one day when we take time to express our love and gratitude for the </p><p>women who have devoted their lives to making ours safe and happy. Some have been famous, most </p><p>are not, but all have been, and continue to be, special.</p><p>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.</p><p>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.</p><p>4 D I S C O V E R I N G March | March 2016 </p></li><li><p> March 2016 | D I S C O V E R I N G March 5</p><p> | T: 01354 653162 | E: | 32 Broad Street, March</p><p>Low Maintenance, </p><p>Animal Friendly.</p><p>No More; Mowing Watering Weed &amp; Feed</p><p> Dead Patches Re-Seeding Muddy Feet</p><p>16 Queen Street, Whittlesey, Peterborough, PE7 1AYTues to Sat 9am - 5.30pm | Sun and Mon: CLOSED</p><p> 01733 390411 | 01733 208484</p><p></p><p>Fre</p><p>e no</p><p>Obl</p><p>igat</p><p>ion </p><p>Quo</p><p>tatio</p><p>ns!</p></li><li><p>6 D I S C O V E R I N G March | March 2016 </p><p>The month of March, as many of you will know is named after Mars, the Roman God of War, but what you probably dont know is the reason why. March was considered to be the first month of spring when the Roman armies could carry on their military campaigns across Europe, without having to contend with harsh winters just like us gardeners! </p><p>Seed potatoes should be well chitted by now (left out in a warm, light and dry space to promote their eyes) If you havent bought them already, fear not - there is still a good selection available now at Skylark. Not sure what to buy? For excellent new potatoes, try Maris Bard; to get the best chips, Maris Piper; and salad potatoes, look no further than Charlotte. </p><p>March can be an unforgiving month, but it is best to knuckle down before the growing season begins in earnest. So, get into your beds and borders and cut back the dead perennials, pull up any weeds poking through, and cover any spare patches with a layer of bark chips to stop the weeds and retain moisture. If you have a large area to cover, Skylark has multi-buys on bark chips, making it cheaper the more you buy plus, with FREE local delivery every Wednesday, you can soon get the job done and on a budget.</p><p>Gardening Matters with Skylark and The Easter Funyard</p><p> Skylark Garden Centre will continue to open everyday Mon-Sat 9-6 and Sunday 10-4 </p><p>Skylark Country Store &amp; Garden Centre, Manea Rd, Wimblington, March PE15 0PE. t. 01354 741212The Cafe is open everyday Mon-Sat 10-5 and Sunday 10-4</p><p> | Gardening corner from Skylark Garden Centre</p><p>The Easter Funyard will re-open on March 25th, for the Easter holidays until April 10th.
