Ninfield & Hooe Village Voice - July 4

PARISH LUNCH: There were many tasty dishes offered at the Faith Lunch held at the Reading Room, Church Lane, Ninfield on Sunday last. The weather was good encouraging several people to use the delightful garden. As the combined service held earlier included people from St Oswalds, Hooe it proved to be a most enjoyable time. The rector, Simon Earl, thanked all those who had contributed to the event in any way.

AFTERNOON TEA: The members of CWF gathered in Ann's garden on Wednesday, June 25 for a special tea. The charity which CWF have chosen for 2008 is Macmillan Nurses and this special tea was a fund raiser for them.

Ann provided a truly delicious assortment of sandwiches, homemade cakes and strawberries and cream. The members who had had lunch regretted it, there was such a choice. I have been told the event raised 112 for Macmillan Nurses. Ann is to be both thanked and congratulated.

THE TRAGER APPROACH: The weather gods smiled throughout the Saturdays in June, when Martin Clout was giving Trager sessions at Great Park Farmshop and Nursery, north of Catsfield. Martin set up a gazebo at the far end of the mature display gardens where he could greet visitors and give complimentary sessions.

Over the four Saturdays he met members of the public with a variety of conditions which illustrate how helpful and innovative this new complementary therapy can be. For the elderly Trager can bring mobility and relaxation by softening tight restricted muscles, opening the circulation and helping them feel confident in their bodies again. Martin also saw people with post traumatic stress disorder, the after-effects of a serious accident, bereavement, osteoarthritis and Motor Neuron Disease, all of whom reported benefits from their sessions.

Martin practices in Ninfield and at The Pinehurst Centre in St Leonards on Sea. He will next be at Great Park Farmshop and Nursery on Saturday, July 12, 19th and 26. If you would like to experience Trager for yourself you can book a slot beforehand by phoning Martin on 01424 892128.
