Priory Farm Nursery: Annie Whitmore gets tips on Autumn gardening

Ode To Autumn – John Keats

Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness,
Close bosom-friend of the maturing sun;
Conspiring with him how to load and bless
With fruit the vines that round the thatch-eves run;
To bend with apples the moss’d cottage-trees,
And fill all fruit with ripeness to the core;
To swell the gourd, and plump the hazel shells
With a sweet kernel; to set budding more,
And still more, later flowers for the bees,
Until they think warm days will never cease,
For Summer has o’er-brimm’d their clammy cells.

How to create some autumn poetry in your garden?

Susy presenter Annie Whitmore spoke to Fiona Dunbar from Priory Farm Nursery for some tips on planning and maintaining our garden space at this time of year.

East Surrey Hospital Named Best Dementia-Friendly Hospital

East Surrey Hospital has been named the best dementia-friendly hospital in England at the national Dementia Care Awards. 

A range of improvements for people living with the condition have been made across the hospital in recent years. An ambitious dementia strategy focussing on key areas has led to strengthened governance and better data. The hospital uses the Butterfly Scheme which ensures that patients receive the right support.  Staff have also introduced dementia leads in various areas and enlisted the support of volunteers to support activities on the wards. A dementia friendly garden has transformed part of the hospital; the Camomile Courtyard is part funded by Charity donations and provides a relaxing space away from the hospital’s buildings. 

Michael Wilson, Chief Executive of Surrey and Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust paid tribute to everyone involved in delivering the improvements.

Kiki Dee meets with Neil Munday

Born in Bradford, Yorkshire, as Pauline Matthews, under her stage name of Kiki Dee, she began her incredible musical journey by singing with local dance bands, and after being spotted by a record company scout in 1963, Kiki was signed as a solo artist to Fontana Records.

In the early 1990’s Kiki had joined forces with songwriter, producer and guitarist Carmelo Luggeri, who had worked with Bill Wyman, Julian Lennon, Andy Williams, Paul Rodgers, Kenney Jones, Ray Cooper, Chris Rea and Ralph McTell. Carmelo produced some bonus tracks for “The Very Best of Kiki Dee” album, and, having hit it off musically, they took on a new musical direction together, playing acoustic concerts, starting with an appearance at The Royal Albert Hall for World AIDS Day in 1994.

Kiki and Carmelo have successfully toured the UK and Europe with their unique acoustic-based show, appearing in Horsham later this month.

Kiki visited the SUSY Radio studios recently, and spoke with Neil Munday.
