LODGE BROTHERS CHRISTMAS REMEMBRANCE TREES AT ENGLEFIELD GREEN & WINDSOR
Each year, all the branches of Lodge Brothers Funeral Directors place a tree in their windows and invite those families who have lost a loved one in that year to attach a ‘remembrance card’ and give thanks for the life of the one they have lost.
In the end, across the branches, the memorial trees hold hundreds of cards. The branch at Windsor went one stage further and invited people to a small service of blessing on the last Sunday before Christmas, led by local vicar, Rev Margaret Bird.
The dozen or so who attended found the whole occasion very meaningful, some simply to remember and others to continue to try to come to terms with the loss of their loved one.
District Manager, Richard Leachman, commented that “Each person who came had their own individual reason for being there, and everyone could not thank us enough for putting on this simple event. It was very moving”.
Afterwards, Jill Palmer (arranger at Windsor) and Tom Hoyles (arranger at Englefield Green) who set up the event, travelled the few miles to ‘the Green’ and repeated the event there, led by Rev Mark Ewbank, vicar of St Jude’s.

Yoni Massage – Unlock your Potential
Yoni is the Sanskrit word for the vagina and represents the sacred space of a woman as the origin of life. Yoni Massage is a Tantric practice that is given as a form of holistic therapy.
Yoni Massage is not given purely as a means of achieving a whole body orgasm, but as a means of bringing strong emotions to the fore as an effective treatment for emotional detoxification.
A skilled Tantric Therapist will use Yoni massage as part of deep bodywork to heal and awaken a woman; facilitating the breakthrough and overcoming of sexual blocks; releasing trapped and obstinate emotions and breaking negative emotional cycles as well as promoting positive mental and physical health.
A Yoni massage when performed by a professional therapist can unblock orgasmic potential and allow a woman to achieve emotional liberation, through emotional detox.
The Western society view of the vagina is that of an area to feel ashamed of, indeed in the West the vagina is seen as a separate, private part to our body and is often a source of embarrassment being referred to as” down there” or our “private parts”, and only referred to in an uncomfortable, self conscious way. The perception is that this part of the body’s only function is that of sexual intercourse or else the birthing of a child.
The vagina is often classified by the West as being tainted and degrading and the very idea of this area being massaged is associated with sexual activity as oppose to the healing and therapeutic treatment that it is. In Tantra the view is very different the Yoni is seen as a sacred part of the body that is to be honoured and respected, but it is also seen as an important part of the woman’s whole body - not a disconnected and separate one. In Tantra practices the yoni is celebrated as the centre of life, unity and intimacy.
Yoni vaginal massage has many benefits and can support a woman in releasing emotional pain that is trapped as a result of sexual trauma, abuse, negative sexual relationships and child birth trauma.
The benefits of the Yoni massage can also help to relieve the symptoms of and alleviate painful menstruation, irregular menstruation, infertility, low sex drive, pain during sexual intercourse; emotional insecurity, fear of intimacy, lack of self respect; lack of trust in relationships, negative body image etc,.
Tantric journey’s aim is to release trapped, obstinate emotions so that you can celebrate life again and bodywork performed during a session is extremely effective in aiding a range of symptoms and illnesses including:
- Loss of interest in sex
- Difficult to experience an orgasm
- Intercourse is painful
- Unable to experience Amrita (ejaculate) and fully let go
- Vaginismus – involuntary vaginal contractions
- Fear of sex, intimacy or love
- Unable to find a suitable partner
- Unable to maintain a long term relationship
- Unable to speak the truth to solve problems
- Feeling insecure, unable to trust, lack confidence
- Unhappy with the body
- Emotional, stress, body aches, insomnia
- Poor menstruation
- Menopause discomfort
- Fertility issues
- Mental depression
- Other sexual dysfunction
In short Yoni Massage is a supportive and emotionally nourishing treatment that can allow a woman to immerse herself into for personal and emotional development through aiding her to release stagnant, negative emotions and revealing, deepening & expanding her ability to experience joy and bliss and lead a positive life.
DIY Marquees is a company with an incredible ethos of sharing advice, offering help and promoting best practice. They are a passionate team with a core vision of offering high quality marquees to customers as well as a high level of customer service. They encourage customers to gain knowledge in order to ensure their marquee hirer clients can maintain good standards. DIY Marquees aim to bring you the very best in Marquee Courses.
Marquee Electrical Courses
We have designed our marquee lighting packages to be as simple as possible, simply connect the leads together plug in to the house/extension lead and you’re done. If your customer needs another power supply then an additional extension lead would usually do the job.
This simple system is perfect when you’re starting up a marquee hire business but after a while the jobs will become more intricate and so do the electrics. At this point you need to consider attending training courses.
Our friends at Essential Supplies are running electrical courses aimed at the marquee hire industry:
Event Electrics Course:
Our one day workshop is specifically aimed at those working in the Marquee
& Events industry. We will cover all aspects of the design, installation and testing of temporary electrical systems for events. The course is aimed at those who specify and install such systems but have no formal electrical qualification. We will guide candidates through best practises in installing electrical and lighting systems in temporary structures for events, including how to avoid some common pitfalls and some not so obvious. There will also be plenty of opportunities to get up close and personal with some of our latest products specifically designs for our industry.
This is a non examined course and provides no formal qualification; it is de-signed to provide candidates with an awareness of the issues surrounding electrical systems for temporary events. Candidates will receive a certificate of attendance upon completion and a set of course notes.
Price: £180 + VAT per candidate
Event Lighting Course:
Our one day workshop is specifically aimed at those working within the events industry. We shall cover methods and types of lighting and how to install your system. This is a non examined course and provides no formal qualification; it is de-signed to help candidates with lighting. Candidates will receive a certificate of attendance upon completion.
Price: £180 + VAT per candidate
PAT Testing Course:
The aim of our one day ‘practical’ workshop is to obtain an understanding of why
PAT Testing is necessary and be able to demonstrate safely and accurately all aspects of electrical testing necessary to perform PAT tests on your own or other peoples electrical equipment
The course is specially designed for those within the events industry, looking at key
Products, unique to the Events World. The testing techniques learnt can be used in any in-dustry. You will be shown how to PAT test a wide range of our products from extension leads to metal light fittings and from simple distribution boards to power tools. To ensure you get the most out of the course we aim to have a maximum of 6 Candidates on each course.
Price: £220 + VAT per candidate
If you have been in the hire industry for a few years and look to be taking the next step up in complexity of marquee bookings then I would recommend attending the Event Electrics Course first with the Event Lighting Course later.
All of your electrics require regular PAT testing, rather than paying an electrician to come in and test them it’s likely a wise investment to train you or a reliable member of staff up as a PAT tester.
Attending training courses like these that are specifically designed towards marquee hirers is good practice for everyone in the industry.

My Truth - Mal Weeraratne
Bodywork is a therapy that can be misunderstood and treatments can go wrong due to a lack of understanding of treatment processes and through trauma transference and projections.
When releasing stagnant negative emotions through bodywork the client and therapist are both placed in a vulnerable position.
Through bodywork the client effectively heals themselves through the presence and direction of an experienced therapist. The therapist is a catalyst and guide for the release of trauma, working on trigger points to aid the accessing and eventual release of negative emotions. Before the emotions can be released they must be accessed and fully felt in the clients body, this may lead to her feeling sad, angry, despairing and vulnerable etc. This is all part of the process of emotional detox through bodywork, but because the client is experiencing ‘emotional pain’ it is possible for them to feel abused due to their emotional turmoil and vulnerability or to transfer the blame for their negative feelings on to the therapist; in short a therapist’s intentions can be misconstrued and they can also become scapegoat for negative emotional experiences that occur during treatment.
Performing bodywork on someone who is suffering emotional trauma and emotionally detoxing can be likened to cracking an eggshell. To someone going through this process the act of having their body touched in the course of treatment can be incredibly painful and damaging as the outer body is not strong enough to hold onto the emotions in response to deep bodywork. It is at this stage that trauma transference can occur and a client can come to blame the therapist for the terrible emotional upset they feel and sometimes become confused about the intentions of the therapist, especially if the client has experienced abuse as the negative emotions connected with this will surface.
It is essential that therapists are fully aware of the emotions that they may experience after a treatment and that the therapist is fully supportive during and after a therapy session, so that a client can complete her emotion process cycle in a safe and supportive environment without the need to explain or quantify her feelings.
Mal Weeraratne is the founder of Tantric Journey. If you wanted to give Mal a job title than it would be fair to describe him as a Tantra therapist and instructor, but what he actually does is perform remarkable emotional transformation work, entitled emotional detox through bodywork.
Being a specialist in the field of female sexual dysfunction, he works as a trained tantric therapist, helping women to overcome their physical and emotional difficulties through the medium of deeply healing bodywork which facilitates emotional release.
Through his Tantric Journey work Mal Weeraratne has helped to release thousands of women from their negative emotional blockages and open a new gateway of orgasmic potential and emotional liberation.
He has treated clients from around the globe, aiding them to overcome conditions including sexual dysfunction, insomnia, inability to achieve orgasm, low self esteem, stresses, body aches and vagainism. His work has also improved the personal relationships of many of his clients; aiding intimacy with their partners and even aiding them in successfully finding partners whilst increasing their ablity to experience ecstatic bliss in all areas of their life.
Mal’s understanding and experience in the field of Tantra is highly commendable. He has studied at various accredited institutions around the world and was the first certified Tantra Educator in theUK from Source School of Tantra in theUSA. To date he has treated well over three thousand clients and his treatment method of emotional release through bodywork (termed Tantric Journey work) is truly groundbreaking and makes him a pioneer in the field of bodywork and female sexuality.
