Annual Festival will Return to Nene Valley Next Month

People across the district are invited to celebrate the rich heritage, wildlife and culture of the Nene Valley as the annual Nene Valley Festival returns this September.

destination nene valley | nene local

The festival, which will take place from Saturday 15 September – Sunday 23 September, will offer a whole host of activities that are guaranteed to be fun for all the family. Thanks to a boost in funding from Heritage Lottery through Nenescape, this year’s festival will be bigger and better than ever before.

Featuring more than 110 events at key locations across the Nene Valley from Northampton to Peterborough, the festival will deliver an eclectic mix of activities for wildlife and culture lovers of all ages.

Northampton Borough Council will be hosting the launch event at Becket’s Park on Saturday 15 September. Councillor Anna King, cabinet member for Community Engagement, Northampton Borough Council, said: “We are once again very pleased that the Nene Valley Festival will be coming to Northampton and we are delighted to be hosting the first event of what promises to be an action-packed week.

“This year the Festival will be showcasing Becket’s Park, which we are very proud of and where the Buddies of Beckets group are doing a fantastic job in bringing back to life this wonderful area of town centre parkland.”

Fitness fanatics are invited to test their peddle power at the Cyclefest taking place at Stanwick Lakes on launch day, and families can learn all about the rich history of the valley at Heritage Family Fun Day, which will be held at Rushden Lakes on Sunday 16 September.

destination nene valley | nene local

To round off a fun-filled week of activities, the local community is invited to ‘come and meet the settlers’ at Stanwick Lakes on Saturday 22 September and join in festivities at Peterborough Family Finale on Sunday 23 September at Peterborough Market Square.

The annual festival, which is celebrating its fifth year, is being organised through the Destination Nene Valley project, which aims to promote the Nene Valley as a competitive, sustainable destination offering wildlife and heritage to local, national and international audiences.

East Northamptonshire Councillor and Board Member for the Destination Nene Valley project, Sarah Peacock, said:

“We are delighted to be delivering the Nene Valley Festival once again this year. The event will offer a diverse range of activities, which will inspire people to connect with the wildlife and heritage of the Nene Valley. We hope that our residents and visitors have a fantastic time celebrating everything that the local area has to offer.”

The festival is one of the key projects within the Nenescape Landscape Partnership scheme, a five-year Heritage Lottery funded scheme that works in partnership with sixteen organisations along the River Nene, to celebrate and look after its natural and built history. In total, thanks to National Lottery players, Nenescape will have provided more than £72,000 worth of funding to Nene Valley Festival by 2022, and have been instrumental in the delivery of the event.

Inspiring Success with a New Business Venture

Last week, Nene Local was invited to a complimentary Life Coaching session from Inspiring Success.

Before I tell you about my session let’s see why you might need a life coach.  If Life Coaching to you sounds a bit too ‘out there’ and you think, why would I need that?

Here is why you might…inner sunshine sheena shah

  • Coaching will enable you to see your life from a different perspective
  • Stop you procrastinating and help you move forward
  • Set goals and achieve them
  • Give you genuine happiness
  • Explore limiting beliefs and find ways to overcome them
  • Give you 100% support

Sheena Shah from Inspiring Success met with me over coffee and we talked through life in general, with me picking some scores for such things as health, finance, relationships, career, mental health, social life etc

Most of my scores were quite high but there’s always room for improvement, right?

One of the sections to fill in was left blank so I popped in a new business venture I’m doing, as its new that scored quite low… So my life coaching did turn a little businessy….  However, I am attending their SuperEMPOWER Yourself day on September 9th and Sheena tells me I get another session as part of that, so will concentrate on a ‘home/leisure life’ area for that session.

Details of the day are here

superempower yourself day

Sheena really questioned me on how I felt about the new venture, what did I want to achieve? By when?

I found I actually had some really big goals for it but hadn’t really put them down on paper yet.  Sheens used a little NLP to get me to ‘seal those goals’ in my head then put them on paper.

By the end of an hour, I had a goal and also small stages to get to that goal.  I had a marketing plan, I had the beginnings of a financial plan, and bundles of enthusiasm.  I was amazed at how much we achieved in an hour.  This was a Friday and so my Saturday morning was spent fine tuning the plans and by Monday I had a follow up email from Inspiring Success outlining all we had discussed and encouraging me further.  I felt very pleased that by this point I had already achieved some of the points.

Why have a coach?

When it’s something close to your heart, you often can’t see a way through.  I’m a ‘just get on with it’ sort of person and coaching enabled me to take time to think, put solid plans in place that will lead to success – rather than a scattergun approach which might lead to success…

Coaching also means encouragement.  When I post to Facebook I get a little smiling face or thumbs up from Sheena, which even as an adult, feedback like this does still spur you on.

We have catch up meetings in place, so she can keep me on track.  Plus, if I feel I’m too busy or too tired to do a task one particular day, the thought of accountability to someone else rather than just me certainly keeps me motivated and wanting to get the ‘thumbs up’!

AromaReiki – New Treatment available Locally

ambascarlett logoAmbaScarlett Holistic Art & Healing recently launched in Islip. Offering treatments, crystals, essential oils, mindfulness and meditation.

Proprietor of AmbaScarlett, Helen Dawson is a Reiki Master Teacher and is qualified in a number of other therapies including Aromatherapy Blending, Indian Head Massage, Reflexology and Bowen Technique to level one.

Helen’s healing journey began in the late 1990’s when she studied reiki in Hertfordshire and then North Wales.  Her love of healing others grew, and she studied new treatments.  In the intervening years her life took many turns, both ups and downs, (you might even know her as the lady who sold bags in Tasty Bite!) the experience of all the tribulations now enable Helen to show empathy and understanding during her treatments.  Each therapy is not just the mechanics of the treatment, in a truly holistic approach the whole person benefits – this can be physically, mentally and spiritually.

AromaReiki comes to Town

Helen through AmbaScarlett has devised a totally new treatment called AromaReiki© which combines all the health and wellbeing benefits of reiki with the therapeutic qualities of essential oils.

All oils are chosen specifically for you

All oils are chosen specifically for each client

Blending the oils

The benefits of reiki can include; relaxation, general wellbeing, self-awareness and also physical benefits too. The addition of essential oils adds a whole new dimension to the treatment, and as the oils never come into contact with the client’s skin there are very few contra-indications.  Each treatment is bespoke to the particular client and their needs.

One client remarked “I have had reiki before, but it has never felt like this, it was amazing, thank you!”

Which oil is right for you today

Which oil is right for you today?

Reiki and AromaReiki© treatments are currently available every Monday in Islip and cost £30 per session.  At the end of the session clients receive a gift to take home, which continues their healing journey until the next appointment.

Meditation & Mindfulness

AmbaScarlett Holistic Art & Healing also produce meditation and memorial stones, some of which have travelled miles to be placed in particular, meaningful places once purchased. Painting memorial stones in the secret garden

Mandala stones can be ordered via the Facebook page with any wording required .  Helen added “There are a number of ways I intend to grow the meditation and mindfulness side of the business, using the mandala stones as mind anchors, so please check the Facebook page for details of new treatments as they come on board.”

Mini Mindfulness stone ready for an event

KORE Therapy – What is it?

KORE Therapy was my therapy of choice to sample this week for Nene Local Magazine.

I went to Taggies Yard Therapies, where owner Endora Stanford uses KORE Therapy as part of her portfolio of treatments.taggies yard therapies

The Appointment

Endora began by using Kinesiology techniques to test my muscles, each reaction to her instruction had a score and she kept a mental note of which muscles ‘passed or failed’ her tests – this sounds much more drastic than it is – all the tests did was show her where my body needed help to work properly once again.  Each test merely consisted of my limb pushing gently against the way she wanted it to go and Endora saw with how much strength/force I could push against her move.

I had initially gone to Taggies Yard with a persistent head ache but Endora explained that the root cause could be anything from a misaligned hip to my legs not being the same length, this is why her treatments begin with the testing, so she can ask the body what is really going on.

The aim of the muscle testing is to initiate an immune system response by getting the clients brain to recognise the primary root cause issues, thus setting the client up to start the healing process before the therapy even begins…

As part of the treatment there were various other techniques performed such as acupressure, the principles of reflexology and her signature treatment of Kore Therapy.

KORE Therapy and the red carpet!

You may know Kore Therapy already and not realise that this is what it is.  Remember when Gwyneth Paltrow appeared on the red carpet a number of years ago with red circles on her skin?  It was down to ‘cupping’ or Kore Therapy.

KORE’s expertise is in finding & treating the root cause to your suffering and not just dealing just with your symptoms.  I might have thought I was being up to the minute and all trendy but cupping dates back to ancient Egyptian, Chinese, and Middle Eastern cultures. Ancient books describe how the ancient Egyptians used cupping therapy in 1,550 B.C.

Endora uses glass cups, and places a burning cotton ball inside them, she quickly removes the ball and places the cup on you, the process creates a vacuum and skin is suctioned into the cup. This suction helps circulation, draws out toxins and supports the bodies systems. The process carries on for a few hours after the cups are removed.  They were on me for about 15 minutes and I didn’t feel any discomfort at all (It felt like she had rested a light book on my back).

Endora does check whether you are going to be wearing anything backless – such as swimming costume or ball gown depending on what you may be doing that week, as the cups can leave some red marks – called Cupping Kisses.  They soon fade but she likes to make you aware.

As I’d gone in with a head ache, Endora explained why she’d worked on my glutes and trapezium – due to the muscle tests she had performed.  However, she finished with a Chinese based massage on my neck and the part where your skull meets your spine.  This area was tender but Endora ensured it was bearable for me – she eased the muscles into action very gently and I feel so much better for it.


How do I feel?

Today after a very good night’s sleep my head feels much better.  Taggies Yard Therapies is based in Orlingbury near Kettering just 15 minutes from the Nene Local head quarters.
