Hi Everyone!

I’m Clare, former owner of Frodsham Flowers on Main

Street, opposite Cowards. After spending time with our

son Daniel, I am now ready to embark on a fresh chapter

in my business. Trading from a bespoke workshop in Frodsham

and back to doing what I do best of all things...FLOWERS (and

being a Mum of course!) I am now available to make up flowers

for all occasions, whether it’s a small thank you bunch or a full

wedding package, I can create designs to suit all budgets.

I pride myself in being one of the florists that only uses top quality fresh flowers for

funeral tributes and will continue to do so.

I was on Main Street for 6 years and built up my reputation

based on quality and customer service and now that I’m back

I can’t wait to welcome you to Belvedere Blooms. If you

have a special occasion coming up, please do get in touch.

I want to personally thank each and everyone of you for

all your support and encouragement.

Follow us on Facebook for all our latest information and

competitions.

See you all soon, Clare x

ABusyYearfor Best in Show

ave you displayed it in

pride of place all year oy

heddar, local councillor

responsible for overseeing

the illage in loom award

ceremony, optimistically

surveyed Doreen’s chaotic

living room.

t was on the sideboard,

Doreen dithered, looking under

the settee cushions, but the

cat took umbrage so moved it

out of harm’s way.

Doreen had won the coveted

est in Show’ trophy for

her winterflowering baskets

last year. oy’s task was to

retrieve that trophy, in order for

it to be presented to this year’s

winner.

remember Doreen

straightened up. took itdown

the eathers to celebrate.

ou took ittothe pub oy

raised his eyebrows.

Then won the meat raffle.

Doreen pushed past him into

the kitchen. carried my

chops home init and then

put it in the freeer. Doreen

rummaged through the freeer.

ut it’s ahuge silverplated

cup, oy said crossly. ou

can’t put it in afreeer.

ell it’s not in there now

anyway. Doreen closed the

door with an icy blast. ’m sure

used it for my bread sauce at

hristmas.

oy frowned. ou’re

supposed to display it.

’ve got no time todust knick

knacks. Doreen waved her

hand.

fter hristmas, what then

oy sighed.

ollow me. Doreen opened

the door of her downstairs

toilet. had aflood in here.

ou used it for aleaky

lavatory oy asked in horror.

ell it was just the right sie,

Doreen nodded, and the cat

had already been sick init by

then.

The cat did what oy wasn’t

sure ifhewanted tosee this

cup again.

She’d eaten all the bread

sauce, Doreen shrugged,

and sometimes you’ve just

got tograb what’s handy.

after that

t’s funny you should ask,

Doreen said. ur lsie

visited with anna’s ashes,

and there was another cat

incident. tknocked the urn

over, she continued, so we

had to scoop everything up

and

ut it in the trophy oy

asked miserably.

ike said, Doreen

shrugged, you’ve got to

grab what’s handy.

lsie’s got the trophy then

oy pulled out his phone.

Shall wegive her aring.

ood idea, Doreen nodded

emphatically. hat’s

the time difference in

Tasmania

That was enough oy

made an eecutive decision.

t looks like it’s gone for

good, he sighed, opening

the front door. ’ll have to

buy anew one. ’m very

disappointed in you Doreen.

Doreen pulled atissue from

her sleeve. ’m sorry ’ve

let you down. She blew her

nose. tried to look after it,

but alot can happen in one

year.

There, there, can’t be

helped. oy softened. ’ll

get straight back to the office

and sort this out. e waved

as he walked down the path,

deciding this was alesson

learned not everyone can

be trusted with precious

things.

f he’d been paying more

attention he might have

noticed the trophyshaped

dustfree patch on Doreen’s

sideboard, or that she didn’t

even own acat.

t’s going toneed a

From Open Plan To

Broken Plan

Despitethe allure of large, bright spaces,itis

of ‘broken plan’design.

Great ways

to introducea

broken-planfeel

lthough everyone loves open

plan living, sometimes we need a

uiet, separate space. uge open

spaces can be difficult to heat,

too, and noise can sometimes

be an issue. roken plan’isa

practical evolution ofopen plan,

retaining the elements we love,

particularly good light and afeeling

of openness, but with subtle

elements to divide large spaces

into more manageable ones,

with different ones for different

activities. Spaces may even be

opened up or closed off as desired.

roken plan aims to be the best of

both worlds.

ne way toachieve the broken

plan effect is with differences

in floor levels, perhaps with a

step between the sitting room

and the dining room. ceiling

can be lowered inone area of a

large, open room to enhance

asense ofintimacy.nd in

homes with very high ceilings, a

meanine level, perhaps as an

office, snug or guest bedroom,

combines openplan feel with

practicality. ther solutions

include internal glass walls or

floortoceiling steelframed

windows to subdivide aspace.

ore typically, especially where

two groundfloor reception

rooms have been knocked

through, agreat way toadd

fleibility is to add glaed or

timber double doors. deally

the doors would slide and fold

away, or else be hinged so that

they fit against the walls when

open. lternatively, connect

separate two rooms with pocket

doors, which slide into the slim

walls on each side great

Can you bag abargain on

Black Friday

November is the month of big deals.Are some too good to be true?

lack riday is the

annual sales event

that crossed the

tlantic to become

huge in the too.

ut does that mean

you’ll get agood

deal

lack riday is

actually two big days

of deals lack riday

and yber onday.

lack riday is the

start of the hristmas

shopping season

in the S, because

it’s when retailers

traditionally ran

doorbuster’sales

on the day after

the Thanksgiving

holiday. The

following onday has

been dubbed yber

onday because apparently everybody goes

back to work, panics about hristmas presents

and hits the online shops on the same day.

lack riday gets bigger every year.long

weekend became aweek of deals, until now

lack riday runs for two weeks or more, with

all kinds of deals announced well in advance as

well as flash lightning deals’ on lack riday and

yber onday. t’s become the most important

part of the retail calendar not just for technology

but for many retailers selling fashion, homeware

and jewellery too. t’s agood time to buy smart

home technology, which attracts massive

discounts at this time of year.

out to make room for

new products or

because they’re no

longer being made.

ndofline

products aren’t

necessarily bad

buys, but research

anything before you

decide whether or

not to spend. efore

you hit the uy

ow’ button on a

bargain, search for

it in ricespy.co.uk.

That shows you

what other retailers

are selling the

product for, and tells

you whether you’re

really getting a

good deal. t works

on everything from

DDs to dishwashers

and it also tells you whether products are in

stock adeal isn’t much use if you can’t actually

order the product.

f you’re looking at adeal on maon, have a

look at uk.camelamelamel.com. Simply copy

and paste the address of the maon product

listing or the eact product name and it’ll show

you the price history sofor eample if we

search for the cult favourite nstant ot pressure

cooker we can see that while its price varies from

to , it’s usually sold for around .

ne of the simplest tricks to lack riday and

yber onday is to make sure you only buy

things you actually need. This time last year we

bought some fancy headphones on lack riday

this week we’re selling them on eay, still in

the original sealed packaging. bargain isn’t a

bargain if you don’t use it.

WE ARE

OFFICIALLY

‘A’ RATED

Great people to buy your

Windows & Conservatories from!

If you’re thinking about brightening up your home with

new windows or extending and increasing the value of

your property by adding a conservatory, our new guide

‘The Seven Costly and Potentially Disastrous Mistakes

People Make When Buying Conservatories and Windows’

will help you ensure you get exactly what you pay for.

Is this what’s on your mind?

After installing 104,400 double glazed units and 4,093

conservatories David says he knows what’s on your mind when

you’re considering buying windows and conservatories.

1. You don’t want to be pressured into buying – so we

don’t employ those high pressure salespeople that double

glazing companies have become infamous for. Instead, our

designers will work with you, at your own pace and help you

to maximise your budget and have complete peace of mind.

2. You worry about the safety of your money – so we don’t ask for

big up front payments. As a long established, financially stable

company, we’re not desperate to get our hands on your money.

3. You’re concerned about the mess that might be caused

– so we employ a ‘tidy up system’ and we clean as we go,

window by window, day by day.

4. You don’t want to be let down by missed start or

completion dates – so we employ one of the industries

top installation managers to manage our ten highly

experienced fitting teams, some of whom have now been

with us for over thirteen years.

5. And of course you want a fair price – our quotations speak

for themselves… see for yourself by phoning for a free

quotation or visiting our showroom for a no hassle browse.

CELEBRATING 50 YEARS

It was a day of celebrations on

Saturday 19th October as Les Harris

Jewellers marked 50 years of business

in Frodsham.

The fi zz was fl owing and the shop was full

of customers, friends and family enjoying

the occasion. We were all delighted to see

the main man himself and many people were

reminiscing with Les about visiting the shop

since their childhood. Happy memories of

adding to their charm bracelet or to choose a

gift with a parent.

On the day there was a visit from the Mayor

of Frodsham, Councillor Liam Jones as well

one lucky winner went away with the Golden

Ticket in a prize draw, winning £50 worth of

jewellery!

Many of you will know that when Les retired

he handed the reins over to daughter Niki and

son in law, Andy. Ably assisted by Sophie

IN FRODSHAM

and Claire.

Over the years Niki and Andy have added

new lines to the shop, catering for a

wide range of clientele. From traditional

contemporary pieces including precious

stones and timeless classics to more modern

lines such as Emozioni, Annie Haak, Clogau

and Hot Diamonds.

As part of the 50 year celebrations, the

couple have been busy re-vamping the shop

with a new colour scheme which sets off the

displays beautifully.

The bespoke, separate Wedding Room that

was introduced a few years ago is very

popular with Brides and Grooms and although

Les is no longer at the helm, jewellery and

watch repairs are still available as well as a

jewellery cleaning service.

Here’s to many more successful years....

Cheers!

Toolate to save for

retirement?

e’re often told by financial

eperts that it’s never too late to

start saving for retirement, and

that even in our s building

asubstantial retirement pot is

possible. learly this depends

on individual circumstances and

it’s always going to be better

to start saving early, but it’s

heartening to know you may

still be able to fund adecent

retirement lifestyle.

Worklace ensions

f you’re in employment, a

workplace pension can often be

the best way to save for your

retirement. our contributions

are matched by your employer

they’re typically deducted from

your gross pay automatically

and attract ta relief.

ension autoenrolment, a

government initiative intended

to help people save for their

retirement, means that if you’re

aged over and earn more

than , per year you

should automatically be enrolled

in aworkplace pension scheme.

adviser who can assess your

individual situation.

Personal ensions

f you’re selfemployed or not

working you can benefit from ta

relief on pension contributions

by paying into apersonal

pension. nlike aworkplace

pension scheme, apersonal

pension is an individual contract

between yourself and the

pension provider, which is often

an insurance company.

Can you improve

your situation when

you do retire?

The pension provider invests

your contributions, but in the

same way as aworkplace

pension you’re not able to

access your money until you’re

years of age under current

legislation.

What aout the state ension

nder current legislation the full

new state pension is .

per week. f you’re eligible, the

amount you’ll receive depends

contributions you’ve built up.

urrently, you need

ualifying years to receive

the full payment of .

per week, but state pension

regulations may change again

over the coming years when

new governments are elected,

for eample.

Stocks and shares ISAs

nvestment Ss are another

way to build up retirement

savings, and the current

maimum limit for saving into

astocks and shares S is

, ta year.

ouneed to make sure your

money is growing above

the inflation rate, however,

otherwise you’re effectively

losing money.

Stocks and shares Ss

offer more fleibility than

pensions as you can access

your money more readily,

whereas workplace and

private pensions aren’t usually

accessible until you reach the

age of . nvestment S

providers typically allow you

to pay in alump sum, drip

feed’ in amonthly amount, or

both.

Some people choose to save

into an investment S as

well as apension scheme, so

they spread the investment

risk and don’t tie up all of their

money up in one place. s

with most important financial

matters, it’s important to seek

guidance from an authorised

adviser who can analyse your

financial situation and present

the best options.

Tech Tip

ow much information are you sharing online

raudsters can commit identity theft with just

three pieces of information your name, your

address and your date of birth and recent

studies found that a third of ritish social

media users provided those very details in

their public profiles.

The trick to online privacy is to share the

minimum amount of information, and to protect

it properly. Do people need to know which

schools you went to, where you live or whether

you’re married ould your posts be better off

staying private than shared Social networks

like you to share everything with everyone,

but what’s good for selling advertising isn’t

necessarily good for people’s privacy.

o matter what you publish where, don’t use

easily guessable passwords and never reuse

the same password across multiple sites or

services.

TheHistory of Thanksgiving

n the fourth Thursday of

ovember,mericans will

celebrate Thanksgiving. Similar

to hristmas festivities in that

there is atraditional meal based

around turkey, what were the

origins of this national holiday

The merican and anadian

celebration of Thanksgiving is

said to have originated with the

ilgrim athers’ first harvest,

known in merican history as

The irst Thanksgiving’.

This festival lasted for three

days in ctober when

ilgrims sat down with

ative merican ndians and

their chief, assasoit, from the

ampanoag tribe indigenous

people who had lived in the

region for centuries.

t took place as the result of an

agreement made between the

ilgrims and the ampanoag in

arch to work together for

mutual protection and food.

Sadly, this was one of the

rare occasions where white

uropeans and ative

merican ndians forged such a

collaborative bond.

Thanksgiving celebrations later

became commonplace across

ew ngland but these were

based on religious fasting

rather than feasting.

ollowing eorge ashington’s

official declaration in that

aday of thanksgiving should be

celebrated by every merican

to mark independence, in

ew ork became the first of

several states to officially adopt

an annual Thanksgiving holiday.

n , after more than

years of pressure on the

government by writer and

journalist Sarah Josepha

ale most famous for the

nursery rhyme ary had a

ittle amb’, resident incoln

declared Thanksgiving to be

afederal holiday to take place

on the fourth Thursday of

ovember. twas intended to

help boost morale and heal

the wounds of the nation due

ather who dwelleth in the

heavens.

Today, Thanksgiving

is regarded as the

commencement of the

winter holidays that include

hristmas and the ew ear.

ver the long Thanksgiving

weekend, families come

together to eat atraditional

Thanksgiving dinner of

turkey, cranberry sauce,

mashed potatoes, gravy,

stuffing, candied yams sweet

potato and suash, corn on

the cob and russel sprouts.

ther traditional fare includes

green bean casserole, fruit

plates and pumpkin pie.

Traditional Thanksgiving

parades take place in many

cities such as ew ork,

Detroit and hiladelphia,

the earliest having begun

in . Some of these

parades also feature Santa

laus linking into hristmas

festivities, and cities are

usually decorated in lights

from this time.

merican football games

feature highly in the

celebrations both by

amateur groups, known as

Turkey owl’ games, and

professional leagues.

or these reasons,

Thanksgiving is sometimes

said to be about the three

’s ood, amily and

ootball.

lthough it leads into

hristmas, Thanksgiving is

the more important winter

celebration in the S and

anada, even though

presents are not echanged.

The day after Thanksgiving

has become known as lack

riday, when stores sell

goods at amassive discount

in the run up to hristmas

and giftgiving.

The agreement came after the

lymouth settlers had suffered

aharsh winter for which they

were unprepared when half

of them died, while the ative

mericans had already lost to the ivil ar aswell as

many of 82their tribe to disease. ecal give thanks to ourr beneficent

A magical evening awaits you at Chester

Cathedral on Friday 29th November

For many in Cheshire, The Spirit of

Christmas at Chester Cathedral signals the

start of Christmas. Now in its 24th year, this

spectacular star-studded event has seen an

array o ouar teeision an ators

take to the stage to perform festive readings

and songs. Previous celebrities have included

Jim Broadbent, Alison Steadman, Benedict

Cumberbatch, Carey Mulligan and Imelda

The concert is hosted by Matthew Kelly of

Stars in Their Eyes fame and is in support

of the Neuromuscular Centre in Winsford,

a charity that provides a range of specialist

services and unique opportunities for people

with muscular dystrophy, a progressive and

debilitating muscle wasting condition with

no known cure. Matthew brings along his

friends from stage and screen, and we’re very

eite to announe the rst

two to join this year’s lineup:

David Morrissey and

Selina Cadell*.

Selina Cadell has most

recently starred as the

quirky and lovelorn Mrs

Sally Tishell in Doc Martin. She has enjoyed

a diverse career, spanning television and

s in oth oei an raati roes,

best known for Wild Child (2008), Match

Point (2005) and her television sitcom

roles as Dorothy Crowther in The Amazing

Mrs Pritchard (2006) and the Dean Mieke

Miedema in Lab Rats since 2008.

David Morrissey is an actor,

screenwriter, producer and

director known for playing the

critically acclaimed roles of

Stephen Collins in State of Play

(2003) and Gordon Brown in

The Deal (2003) which earned

him a Best Actor award from the Royal

Television Society. Recently he has portrayed

The Governor in The Walking Dead from

2012 and Inspector Tyador Borlu in BBC2

Drama The City and the City (2018).

Both are delighted to be joining Matthew

The Weaver Vale Group held its Autumn Lunch Meeting at Frodsham

Community Centre on Tuesday, 8th October, 2019 and a delicious

soup and dessert lunch was attended by nearly one hundred WI

members. We were also pleased to welcome our Chairman, Jean

Harding.

After lunch we were entertained to a very amusing talk by Peter Slack, a third generation hill

farmer in the beautiful Peak District National Park where he farms dairy cattle and sheep. His

talk was entitled “I’m Not Lost – I am Not Sure Where I Am”. Peter has a talent for making

people laugh and shared his wonderfully whimsical observations on the ramblers that pass

through his farmyard.

A thoroughly enjoyable afternoon was had by all.

A Christmas Carol

But he was a tight-fisted, grinding, squeezing,

wrenching, grasping kind of Scrooge…….a clutching

covetous old sinner!

Frodsham Players return to the stage in November to

present Neil Bartlett’s dark adaptation of ‘A Christmas

Carol ‘, Charles Dickens’ classic supernatural tale of

poverty, charity and redemption. Set in Victorian London

it tells the tale of Scrooge’s journey from miserly hatred of

the world and the people in it to his salvation. Your heart

will go out to this man that it is impossible to really like.

Performed in the round this ensemble adaptation uses

Dickens’ extraordinary words and a cast of fourteen

actors and musicians who play a range of ever-changing

characters. This family friendly production is directed by

Carole Shinkfield and features Ian Lancaster as Scrooge

and David Varley as Marley. A magical, spine-chilling tale which will melt even the coldest of

hearts.

over the building as war broke out. After 10

years and some refurbishments, it became

Helsby Grammar School for Girls and Helsby

Grammar School for Boys. As part of the

comprehensive agenda the school changed

names to become Helsby High School in the

1970’s. It was June that contacted the school

to reminisce about her visits to the school

an onr this oentous year or Hesy

High School.

We are all so proud that our school is 70 years old and students and teachers alike have been

enjoying looking at old articles and pictures about our school. June who is a retired local journalist,

has been able to collect interesting articles about the school over the years, many written by June

herself and presented this to the school at the coffee morning.

Over 50 students entered the competition to design a logo to help

celebrate our anniversary. Students were asked to design a logo

that could be used on both letterheads and a poster and this was

a challenge – but as is typical of Helsby students, they rose to it!

June chose the winner and Hannah S in Year 10 received a £20

voucher for winning the competition and her logo has been

turned into a digital logo by a local design agency.

June was so impressed with the

designs that two more were also

chosen to feature in our celebrations:

Sam H in Year 10 and Iona A in Year

8. These ‘runners up’ designs will also be used to help celebrate

our anniversary.

We would like to say well done to all three of these students and a

special thank you to June for coming to spend time at our school.
