Food Review

THE

LAMB

INN

After a long overdue catch up with my good

friend Jodie, we decided a get together was in

order and booked a table at The Lamb at

Edgmond. Neither of us had been to the Lamb

for a few years, certainly not since Lance and

Debbie had taken over in 2019 so we was

unsure of what to expect but had heard many

good things so was hopeful.

After being greeted at the door and shown to

our table by a lovely member of staff, our drinks

order was taken, and we sat back and relaxed.

Under the current safe distancing rules, we felt

very safe, we were asked to use hand sanitiser

at the door, all staff had face shields on, tables

were well spaced out and several dividers up.

Looking through the menu we were both quite

taken back with the amount of choice on offer

plenty of starters to choose from then platters,

pastas and salads, a grill selection, stone baked

pizzas, burgers and a fabulous selection of The

Lamb favourites. There is also a light bites lunch

menu, jacket potatoes and hot and cold

sandwiches available daily from 12noon –

3.30pm.

The starter choice was easy for me once I

noticed the trio of panko breaded cheeses,

whilst Jodie chose the chicken and duck terrine

with plum and apple chutney and warm toasted

ciabatta shards. We both commented on how

busy it was for a Thursday afternoon but what

a relaxed enjoyable atmosphere and such

attentive friendly staff.

Our waitress, Aysha, arrived with our starters

looking like something from a posh nosh

restaurant, presentation was impeccable, but

what was even better was the taste! My trio of

cheeses consisted of a wedge of camembert,

French brie and a slice on halloumi, all laying on

a bed of rocket, caramelised walnuts and

beetroot, why has this not been on a menu

before, the chef is a genius. The cheeses were

all warm, the camembert melted out and was

so creamy, the halloumi was fantastic with the

panko breadcrumbs. I spent the entire dish

deciding which cheese was my favourite,

eventually deciding on the French brie. All

ingredients complimented each other perfectly

and a very generous, enjoyable starter.


Superb quality

food with service

to match!


Scene Local Media 01952 780058


Jodie’s equally looking stunning was a slab of textured,

chunky and fresh terrine with a real meaty taste to it, a pot of

chutney and two large slices of thin ciabatta, Jodie stated it

was just bursting with flavour and simply delicious. Again, a

good portion size and the perfect balance of bread, pate and

chutney.

Once our starters were removed, we eagerly awaited our

mains. With such an array of mains to choose from you really

are spoilt for choice, I toyed between the pie, steak, a pizza

and the black and blue burger, eventually choosing the slow

cooked free range Shropshire belly pork and Jodie decided

on the Thai inspired red curry that you could choose with

chicken, veg or king prawn.

I must add there is plenty of fish dishes on the menu too,

salmon, mussels, cod, prawns etc including a seafood medley

pasta, for all you fish lovers out there.

As we chatted and I watched a nearby diner have the pie and

chips delivered to his table, it looked amazing with proper

shortcrust pastry, I hadn’t ordered this this time, but will

definitely be back to try it and was slightly wishing I had

ordered it. Thankfully once my belly pork arrived the greeneyed

monster for the pie disappeared and my eyes lit with

delight. WOW, how do I start to describe this

fabulous creation? Three big chunks of belly pork

with the perfect crispy crackling, a pot of cauliflower

cheese, fondant potato and fresh veg that included

my favourite tender stem broccoli, all smothered

with apple puree and orchard thieves sauce and the

cutest little pot of gravy. Even though we were still

in August during this particular visit, it was cold, and

this was the perfect main to warm you through.

Jodie’s Thai curry was again presented well with a

generous portion of jasmine rice, and a bowl of

chicken Thai inspired red curry, and freshly cooked

mini prawn crackers. I just had to try some, and it

was just so tasty, floral and fragrant with just the

perfect kick to it, you could taste the lemongrass

and coconut blended together with the red chilli’s

and other herbs and spices. Plenty of chunks of

chicken and lots of veg in a soupy curry. The freshly

cooked prawn crackers were fab and a real nice

treat to the packet ones you usually get.

Both mains were faultless, flavoursome and

fantastic. All the ingredients were clearly fresh and

cooked with passion. We were both taken back by

the quality and taste that was being served, and

really pleased we had made the decision to visit the

Lamb. I must also add that all the staff were so well

mannered and helpful especially Aysha.

After two delicious courses we were of course getting very

full, however leaving without trying a dessert wasn’t an

option, we had to see if they were as equally as good of

course, especially with so many available.

I chose the raspberry and white chocolate meringue with

summer berries and raspberry sorbet and Jodie chose the

vanilla crème brulee. My meringue was rather spectacular

and more like an ice cream sundae with a posh swirled

complete meringue on top that was super lush and tasty. The

bottom of the dish was crushed meringue with cream then

juicy raspberries and a refreshing sorbet. Jodie’s crème brulee

was topped with 2 heart shaped shortbreads, once she

cracked through the caramelised burnt sugar was a

beautifully creamy crème brulee. Again, faultless and

amazing desserts.

The Lamb is certainly setting a high standard with quality food

on offer and a service to match and with so many dishes on

offer you could try something new each visit. Both myself and

Jodie would highly recommend the Lamb Inn and already

planning our next visit.

Well done to Debbie, Lance & the team!

WINDSOR & ETON BREWERY

BEER THROUGH THE YEAR

As always, enjoy!

Trevor Langley

Windsor & Eton Brewery was founded during 2010 and now proudly possesses a Royal Warrant.

Producing great classic and new beer styles, a good number of which are bottle conditioned,

this brewery has a range of very impressive ales, that includes award winners and multi awardwinning

productions.

KNIGHT of the GARTER Golden Ale: (3.8% vol). Described, on the label, as ‘Sunshine in a

glass’ (I agree), this golden ale is brewed with a blend of hops from the New World. A citrus

aroma greets the nasal senses, which follows, admirably, to the mouthfeel.

GUARDSMAN Best Bitter: (4.2% vol). Extremely popular, Guardsman is brewed utilising

Fuggles and Goldings whole leaf hops to great advantage. This easy-drinking,

smooth production, has wide appeal, with its copper colour and excellent taste.

A favourite with numerous beer lovers.

WINDSOR KNOT Pale Ale: (4.5% vol). Brewed originally to commemorate the

wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton, this beer uses Sovereign and

Nelson Sauvin hops and has many supporters amongst pale ale devotees.

REPUBLIKA Craft Pilsner: (4.8% vol). This splendid craft beer is one of several

productions, from the Windsor & Eton Brewery, which have won awards.

Combinations of Saaz hops, Czech yeast and Pilsner malt produce this fullflavoured

delight, which I found very refreshing.

Come and relax in our beer garden

overlooking the River

Severn

CONQUEROR Black IPA: (5.0% vol). Bringing together

Cascade and Pacific Jade whole leaf hops, plus a blend of five

speciality malts, this complex and noticeably rich IPA gained

great interest from the outset. Superb, awesome and brilliant

are some of the descriptions attributed to this beer.

WASTELAND Double IPA: (10.0% vol). Belgian candi sugar is

one of the ingredients for this Double IPA with ten different

hops, that include some of the best of America and the New

World. Another exceptional IPA, which certainly delivers on

aroma, mouthfeel and the palate’s enjoyment, from the

Windsor & Eton Brewery.

Other popular productions include Capital Dry-Hopped Lager

and Treason West Coast IPA. Ordering is easy and beers are

delivered via courier to anywhere in the UK. Visitors to the

brewery are made very welcome.

Looking for the best

Afternoon Tea?

WELL WE HAVE FOUND IT!

With afternoon teas becoming ever more popular, when I noticed Green Fields

Farm Shops started to offer a takeaway service it had to be a ‘must try’.

Knowing Green Fields only stock the best of the best and, mainly locally

produced items, I had a feeling this was going to be very special and I certainly

wasn’t disappointed.

Often seeing many afternoon teas across social media all looking fantastic, my

first thought is always ‘there needs to be more savoury items’, don’t get me

wrong, I love a good cake and scone but also a bit more than a sandwich to

start with.

Arranging collection of 2 boxes (enough for 4 people) I was able to enter Green

F ields safely to collect. Presented beautifully the boxes consisted of a selection

of cheese and onion sandwiches and egg mayo which had clearly been made

from the fresh bread they stock there and totally delicious. However, much to

my delight the box also consisted of two slices of quiche, a proper sausage roll,

a pork pie and a scotch egg – all chopped into slices and with fresh salad and a

pot of chutney. Now this was an afternoon tea fit for a king and queen.

You could really tell the quality difference with each item, fresh and bursting

with flavours. It was fantastic to have such a selection and taste the variety of

fresh items Green Fields stock, Ill certainly be going there for pork pies and

sausage rolls from now on!

Now on to the best bit – the cakes!

Each box had a slice of Crystals chocolate

brownie, a Crystals cupcake and a

homemade scone, pot of jam and Cornish

Clotted Cream. With eyes bigger than our

bellies we opted to share half of each cake

and save the other half for supper (which

turned out to be a great decision). The

brownie was literally like a chocolate

butter, it just melted and was incredible.

Our selection of Crystals cupcakes were

lemon and a marzipan,

I doubt there is many people that haven’t

tried a Crystals cupcake by now, simply the

most marvellous cupcakes you could ever

eat. Slightly overshadowed by these

beauties the scones still offered the

perfect end to an afternoon tea, fresh,

crumbly and perfect when topped with

the jam and clotted cream.

The entire box of goodies was faultless and a pure delight. Very

reasonably priced at £12 per person (minimum of two people).

We didn’t make any special requests for fillings or cake

selections, but this can be arranged, although I would say the

choice was spot on, and vegan / gluten and other special dietary

requirements can be catered for upon request.

The perfect way to spend an afternoon tea with a friend, partner,

colleague, family member or just a treat for you and little ones!

You won’t be disappointed!

Taurus - (21st April -21st May)

October 4th/5th sees the Moon in its Waning Gibbous

new sofas, cushions and carpets and be generally

'nesting'...

September seems to be a month of many new starts to

new directions in life, go for it Gemini!

Cancer - (22nd June - 22nd July)

Virgo - (24th August - 22nd September)

It's Virgo's turn for the spotlight on love as Venus enters

October 2nd. Use compromise to help heal rifts, it is Ok

to rethink relationship goals! Single Virgo's might decide

that actually they love aspects of single life, funny how

we change isn't it Virgo?, even on the friendship level it

seems your expectations have been revised, and you

have learnt...

Libra - (23rd September - 23rd October)

The Sun enters Libra September 22nd, bringing a sparkle

and an inner confidence! And by October 28th with

groundbreaking confidential chats! Focus may be upon

counselling, secrets, scandals, shattering the illusions,

passionate talks to happen....whether you are the

confessor or the counsellor these are important matters...

Pisces - (19th February - 20th March)

October 26th the Waxing gibbous Moon sees you

recognising your ritual habits, feeling tired of doing what

others want and expect of you!, out of this comes a 'shake

up' resulting in an appearance of two paths!, a fork in the

road! Summoning your power, your premonitions, dreams,

and clairvoyance should be trusted when it comes to

choosing between the two.... hmmm, interesting Pisces....

OPTOMETRISTS

PROVIDING EMERGENCY AND

ROUTINE EXAMINATIONS

Whilst many practices were closed throughout lockdown, Flint and Partners

remained open - providing Emergency Care only - on occasions working from

7.00a.m. and delivering vision solutions to disabled and/or shielded patients

throughout the night.

We’ve been extremely busy caring for both our own patients and new ones

with a range of eye care and vision emergencies from the easily solvable such

as repairing broken glasses, to more complex sight threatening conditions

and serious general health issues.

Our state of the art equipment and continuously updated clinical skills enable

us to diagnose urgent problems with a degree of accuracy which, in most

cases, means patients do not need to be triaged when they arrive at hospital

and are directed to the appropriate consultant without delay.

There are situations where early, accurate diagnosis and treatment is critical

in preventing loss of vision, hence we are known by a number ofpatients as

“sightsavers!”

The same is true with some general health conditions, although we find that

many people are unaware of the extent to which a number of health

problems needing GP or hospital referrals, can be detected via thorough eye

examinations; this why we encourage as many people as possible to take

advantage of our Enhanced Eye Examination available privately at a cost of

£89, or £49 as a supplement to those entitled to NHS care.

Presently and going forward, we are now able to offer routine

examinations in addition to emergency care. Our Tettenhall Road practice is

open six days from 9am and our Codsall and Wednesfield branches are open

on a reduced basis – please ring for appointments.

We have suspended our Brewood surgery presently, given the reduced

access to GP appointments and the requirement to limit the number of

people waiting in enclosed spaces, but you all will be welcome at our Codsall

practice.

Understandably, some people are still wary of going into public places; we

have the welfare of patients and staff uppermost in our procedures and offer

a smaller number of consultations per day in a safe and uncrowded

environment.

This enables us to carry out additional hygiene precautions for both your own

protection and that of our staff. We havescreens in place and all our

optometrists have face protection together with gloves which are changed

between patient consultations, the equipment being appropriately

disinfected also.

We aim to make your experience as worry free and pleasant as possible; our

convenient locations mean that there is no need to travel unnecessarily

causing you to be exposed to crowded environments.

Our frames are also cleaned, sterilised and stored so you can ensure your

styling session is as comfortable as the eye examination.

Education

Brewood CE Middle Academy are delighted

to have their pupils back into school...

Mr J Smith as Acting

Executive Principal

On Thursday 3rd September,

Brewood CE Middle

Academy opened up again

for all its pupils following the

national pandemic. Interim

Executive Principal, Jon

Smith explained that “it has

been a long wait for pupils,

staff and parents but we are

delighted to have our pupils

back into school and we are

all ready for a positive and

successful year ahead”.

The mission at Brewood has

always been to educate the

pupils within a safe, happy,

caring Christian environment, where all are valued

and encouraged to fulfil their potential in all aspects

of school life. The school motto of ‘Be the Best you

can Be’ exemplifies what the school expects of pupils

and adults alike. This is underpinned by the school’s

belief that all pupils should ‘live life in all its fullness’ –

John 10:10

In April 2018 our OFSTED Inspection judged the

school as ‘Good’ for overall effectiveness with

‘Personal development, behaviour and welfare’

judged as ‘Outstanding’.

British Values are embedded in the life of the school

and are actively promoted through spiritual, moral,

social and cultural education forming a part of the

school’s distinctive Christian character.

The school were delighted to join the St Chad’s Multi-

Academy Trust in 1 October 2019 and the many new

opportunities for the school, staff and pupils,

enabling them to raise standards further.

The strong pastoral care system within the school

helps them to develop pupils as confident individuals

who have self-discipline, respect for others and a

caring attitude towards the community in which they

live. Pupils are given opportunities to develop

leadership and life skills and are strongly encouraged

to take part in extra-curricular activities which

develop their full potential. At Brewood CE Middle

Academy, all stakeholders want all pupils to engage

in learning in a safe and welcoming environment.

Pupils at Brewood can choose from a wide range of

musical instrument lessons led by experienced

peripatetic teachers work in the school’s ‘Major Minor’

Music School. There is a thriving choir at school which

performs both in school and also at community

events.

A ‘virtual tour of the school’ can be found in the

‘Transition the Brewood 2020’ section of the school

website whilst a “Presentation to New Parents – June

2020” will also provide prospective parents with a

view of the school.

Education

Big Enough to

Deliver, Small

Enough to Care

by Sarah Morris,

Headmistress,

Birchfield School

The last school term was undoubtedly a huge test for every

member of school communities, from the youngest Reception

pupil to parents, to the senior management team. Whilst

secondary school pupils faced losing their GSCE and A Level

examinations and leaving their schools without the usual

goodbyes and celebrations, primary pupils across the country

have also had to dig deep to cope with varying levels of remote

learning and technology – no mean feat for young children,

particularly in the formative early years.

As a result, the level of pupils’ interaction with their teachers and

classmates has varied hugely from school to school, with it

being widely reported that some children have missed almost

a full term of their schooling, delivering justifiable concerns

about catching up and the impact on children’s futures.

Birchfield School, Albrighton, with its thriving community of

passionate teachers and aspirational children, committed from

the outset of the coronavirus lockdown to look after each and

every child in their care with the these key objectives in mind:

pupil well-being, live academic delivery, daily teacher contact,

enrichment projects and a varied sporting challenge

programme.

Birchfield School prides itself on delivering an all-round

education and therefore during lockdown, our pupils benefitted

from a superb Griffin Learning programme of remote live

lessons with their teachers, supported by self-directed work at

home, personal feedback and marking of work as usual by the

hardworking and dedicated teaching team.

A weekly newsletter reported on and showcased a gallery of our

pupils working from home and undertaking numerous

challenges, competitions and set activities for their teachers,

whilst assemblies became weekly round-ups, where pupils were

recognised for their achievements and House successes

reported.

Whilst there is clearly no substitute for the experience of being

physically at school, the success of our bespoke remote Griffin

Learning programme has been such that Birchfield will retain

and incorporate key elements of the programme into the

curriculum going forward.

If you feel your child has missed out on their education in the

last term, please do contact Birchfield to find out how we

dedicate every moment to ensuring your child has the very best

start in life. We would be delighted to offer you a personal tour

of Birchfield to discover for yourself just what it is that makes a

Birchfield education such a special, memorable and effective

time of your child’s young life.

GOOD OLD FASHIONED

Home Cooked Food

INGREDIENTS:

140g plain flour

3 eggs

Eggs

300ml milk

2 tsp Dijon mustard

2 tbsp vegetable oil

8 Cumberland sausages

8 sage

Sage leaves

4 rosemary

Rosemary sprigs

METHOD

Heat oven to 240C/220C

fan/gas 9. In a food

processor, combine the flour,

eggs, milk, mustard and

some salt and pepper, blitz

until smooth, then leave to

rest for 30 mins.

Pour the oil into a metal

roasting tin about 30 x 23cm

and 7.5cm deep. Brush the

oil all over the sides and

bottom, then place in the

oven. When the roasting tin

is very hot and smoking,

place the sausages inside,

evenly spread out, and cook

for 5 mins.

Give the rested batter a stir

and pour into the really hot

tin – take care as it may spit.

Quickly sprinkle over the

sage leaves and rosemary,

then place in the middle of

the oven. Do not open the

door for 25 mins, then check

– if needed, cook for a

further 5-10 mins. Cook until

puffed up and brown and the

batter is completely cooked

through. Serve straight from

the dish.

INGREDIENTS

2 celerysticks, sliced into 1cm pieces

1 onion, chopped

2 really big carrots, halved lengthways

then chunkily sliced

5 bay leaves

3 thyme sprigs

2 tbsp vegetable oil

1 tbsp butter

2 tbsp each plain flour, tomato purée and

Worcestershire sauce

2 beef stock cubes, crumbled

850g feather blade beef, or other braising cut, cut into

large chunks

850g large potato

25g each mature cheddar and parmesan

finely grated

METHOD

Mix together the lemon zest, rosemary and olive oil and

set aside to infuse. Get 8 long skewers ready, if using

wooden skewers, soak in water for 10 mins first.

Thread 3 meatballs and pieces of different veg onto each

skewer, alternating between each. Brush all over with the

lemon and rosemary marinade.

Preheat a barbecue or griddle pan until very hot.

Barbecue the skewers for 12-15 mins, turning often, until

the meat is cooked through and the veg is tender and

lightly charred.

Serve the kebabs with lemon wedges to squeeze over

and some aioli to drizzle or dip, if you like.


Scampi with tartare sauce

INGREDIENTS

15-20 langoustine or Dublin Bay

prawn tails

Vegetable or sunflower oil for

frying

140g plain flour

85g cornflour

150ml beer

100ml sparkling water

lemon wedges and chips,

to serve

FOR THE TARTARE SAUCE

6 tbsp mayonnaise

1 gherkin or 6 cornichons, finely

chopped

1 tbsp caper, rinsed and

chopped

1 tsp lemon juice

1 tbsp chopped parsley

2 tsp chopped tarragon

Method

To prepare the langoustines, pull

off the head and pincers. Lay the

tail flat on a chopping board and

use a sharp pair of scissors to cut a

line straight down the back of the

shell. Carefully peel the

Easy treacle

sponge

langoustine, score down the back,

then remove the grit sac.

Get the oil heating in a large

saucepan or wok – you will need

enough to come 2-3in up the side

of the pan. For the tartare sauce,

mix all ingredients in a bowl and

season.

Place the flours in a bowl with a

good pinch of salt and pepper. Add

the beer and sparkling water, and

whisk to a smooth batter.

To test if the oil is hot enough, put

a drop of batter into the pan – it

should crisp and brown within 30

secs. Dip each langoustine or

prawn tail into the batter, then

carefully drop it into the oil.

Drizzle a little extra batter over

each one while they are cooking –

this will give you a really crispy

coating. Cook them in batches,

making sure you don’t overcrowd

the pan. When golden and floating

to the surface, scoop out and drain

well on kitchen paper. Sprinkle the

scampi with salt and serve with the

tartare sauce, lemon wedges and

chips.

WOOF

ADVICE TO DOG OWNERS TO HELP

THEIR PETS ADJUST TO THE CHANGE

As some return to work, we're issuing advice to dog owners to help their pets

adjust to the change...

For many of us, life has changed significantly during the Covid-19 lockdown and

it's also changed for our dogs. When the restrictions are lifted, we will have to

adjust again to returning to our normal routines - and our pets will too.

Woof

TOP TIPS FOR PREPARING YOUR DOG

• Gradually change the timings of your dog's routine to the way they will eventually be. If the time you feed

or walk your dog has changed due to lockdown then slowly start to change it back to how it was before.

Doing this can prevent your dog from experiencing frustration and anxiety when their daily schedule

suddenly doesn't match what they've come to expect.

• Begin to gradually return your dog's routine to normal before it must change. Consider the number of walks,

location and times that are part of your dog's normal routine. Gradually adjust your walks to match this. Our

dogs may not be left alone at all during lockdown or for brief intervals only, and they're getting much more

attention and interaction. But if this is likely to change when you go back to work then you need to prepare

them for that. Begin to gradually decrease the amount of attention you give your dog and increase the time

they spend on their own. This may include not playing with your dog every time they ask or not stroking

them every time, they nudge you. Don't completely ignore your dog as this may confuse them but do give

them something better to do like a comfy bed to lay on or a tasty chew to settle with.

• Give them a routine as close as possible to the one they'll experience when restrictions are lifted. Help your

dog spend more time alone by encouraging them to rest in their own bed or keeping them in a separate

room while you do something else.

• Give your dog clear signals about when they can be involved in interactions and when they need to occupy

themselves. Chew toys or interactive toys your dog can use without you can help you to do this.

• Try to keep interaction time for when you will be available once your routine is back to normal, for example

in the evenings after dinner.

• You may also want to think about leaving the house without the dog to help your dog to gradually get used

to this part of their routine again. If you need to build up this time for a longer duration or for more frequent

absences, think about going to sit in the car to read a book, so that you can leave the house and stay within

government guidelines. However, if your dog shows any distress when left alone then pause your plans and

seek the support of a qualified behaviorist.

• If you are returning to using a dog walker, friend or family member to care for your dog while you are busy,

they might be very excited or even a little apprehensive having spent time with only you. It can be useful

for you to remain home on the first walk or two, just in case your dog needs any extra support from you.

REDUCE STRESS ADVICE:

Security blankets, specialised treats and personal toys also provide comfort for stressed-out pets. Try to use items

that already contain our scent, perhaps a towel or blanket, which will make canines feel even more secure.

Calming background noise like classical music has been used to “calm the savage beast” and can work the same for

many dogs. While we’re away from home, these relaxing tones can provide comfort during our absence. Some pet

owners simply leave the television set on for some companionship while we’re busy and work, school or while

running errands.

Providing mental stimulation is just as effective as physical exercise and the two can also be combined.

Think about different types of toys available that entice a dog to work for a treat or reward.

Health & Wellbeing

Taking care of yourself is

taking care of others

I’m taking a moment to reflect before

I write; giving consideration to what

I feel may be most useful for this edition.

As we are about to enter the autumn of

2020, there seems to be a lot of concern

around ‘second waves’ of COVID-19

hitting us hard and with it the potential

for enforced local lock-downs disrupting

the usual way of life. Of course we cannot

be sure of anything and this can give rise

to uncertainty for us all.

In Occupational Therapy we promote

health and well-being and encourage

people to find a balance. Taking a

bio-psycho-social approach this allows us

to consider how a person functions, how

they think and feel and how their

environment impacts them day-to-day.

Ask yourself …

How does your body feel?

What are your fears?

What do you think about?

Are you kind to yourself?

Does your environment

benefit you?

What (if anything) could you

change?

If there is one thing this pandemic has

taught us, it is the importance of taking

greater care of ourselves. We are not all

‘in the same boat’ right now, but if we

all take care of ourselves as individuals

then we are more likely to take care of

one another in the broader sense.

Scene Local Media 01952 780058


So; what can we do?

The Immune system:

Put basically, the immune system helps us fight disease and infection and there are many reasons

it can be weak and therefore make us more vulnerable. Genetic factors can affect the way the

immune system functions, our environment and our lifestyles. We have more control over our life

styles and therefore this is what we can focus on in preparation for the colder months ahead.

• SLEEPING is essential to good health, it is the basis of fundamental good health - if you have a regular sleep/wake cycle you are more

likely to regulate cardio vascular health and maintain the natural balance of your internal organs, you are more likely to have increased

cognition and brighter moods too!

• EATING AND DRINKING habits

can be modified for optimal health,

ensuring we eat more natural fruit

and vegetables and a balance of

carbohydrates and dairy than we do

processed sugary foods – this will also

help balance the mechanism of the

bodies internal organs. We are also

beginning to understand the importance of gut health and how gut health can greatly impact mood levels.

Pro- biotics can be a great way to balance gut flora.

• EXERCISE reduces inflammation and thus frees up the immune system to fight any unwanted infections, it is

worth noting that physically active people are also more resistant to respiratory illness. Exercise increases white

blood cell production in the body and these fight infection – so it really is important for us all and if that’s not all,

our mood greatly improves after we exercise too!

• CLEANING your digital feed could never be more important than right now! According to research conducted

in America, the average mobile phone user today touches their phone 2,617 times per day. Some ‘high end’

social media users can spend up to and above five hours a day on their phone. It really is becoming a dangerous

and addictive habit to engage in. WHAT CAN BE DONE? 1. Remove unwanted advertising from your feed 2. Remove negative

people/companies from your feed 3. Reduce your screen time (there are great tools in your settings to help with this)

• ‘BE KIND TO YOUR MIND’ In simple terms we need to be mindful when our thoughts are becoming more negative than positive. It is

so normal to have fearful or worried thoughts, this is because we are hard wired to identify risk, danger and potential threat to life but

as we all know and have experienced these thoughts can often run wild in the landscape of our minds, we have to challenge those

thoughts and pay attention to where we focus our energy; ‘where thoughts go energy flows’! (sorry-couldn’t help but use that one!)

Our immune systems are amazing but we can optimize them by taking care of ourselves and when we take care of ourselves, we can

then take care of others. From basic sleep hygiene to an improved diet and raised levels of fitness we can improve the way our bodies

function. Getting outside while we can is really important as we will absorb more vitamin D through sunlight. All of this is in our power,

we can have a positive impact on our bodies and our minds and we can also try to improve the environment we live in, try introducing

oxygenating plants to your home or office to improve air quality.

The good news is that these changes can be made quite easily and the results can be felt relatively quickly, it is also very important to

remember that this is about balance NOT perfection. The point is we can try to take greater care and in trying we can also encourage

others to do the same.

FLOATATION

RELAXATION

Make time to keep well

as you don’t have time

to be unwell!

‘A state of deep relaxation and serenity in

which your body & mind can heal &

replenish’

Floatation is a treatment that allows you to

float effortlessly, relieving stress, aches and

pains supporting you on a bed of warmed

water letting your anxieties slip away.

Floatation is known to have physical

benefits as well as deep relaxation,

including:

l Relieving stress on joints and muscles

l Relief from muscle and joint strain

l Encouraging easier and deeper sleep

l Supporting your body to release

endorphins, which relieves pain and may

lower blood pressure.

l The Epsom salts in the flotation tanks

which can reduce inflammation and

muscle tension

Perfect for that

special gift!

identical to being outside, with the exception of

reduced ultraviolet rays.

Our system fully replicates the natural sun across the

whole solar spectrum apart from greatly reduced UV

“The striking overlap between risk factors for severe COVID-19 and vitamin D deficiency,

including obesity, older age, and Black or Asian ethnic origin, has led some researchers to

hypothesise that vitamin D supplementation could hold promise as a preventive or

therapeutic agent for COVID-19.”

Car Review

FORD PUMA

By Sue Cooke

It was so good this week to get behind the wheel of a car

that constantly pulled second looks because of its eyecatching

styling. It could also have been due to the

glorious CAR 1 number plate on the new Ford Puma. As I

put knee to tarmac to take a photo from the front, I realised

how high the bonnet sits. Flagged by wing top mounted

headlamps this Puma’s eyes are as piercing and distinctive

as the animal.

And out on the road the compact crossover has a feline

growl on hard acceleration and much more torque at lower

engine speeds. The 1 litre EcoBoost hybrid and 48 volt

lithium ion air cooled battery pack makes for a powerful

response, such that I had to keep reminding myself to

move up the six speed manual gearbox.

A display on the dash informed me when I was in hybrid

mode, which was mainly when cruising downhill. Energy

usually lost is recovered and stored during braking and

coasting. The Auto Start stop technology is impressive

when I was waiting at road work traffic lights and the

engine restarted “in the same amount of time as the blink

of an eye”, describes Ford, with no turbo lag.

In the cabin a raised ride height gives the driver a good

view over traffic ahead. Pure luxuries include a large

panoramic roof which stretches front to back, giving a

welcome wind in the hair experience on a hot day. There is

also a Lumbar Massage seat. Puma models include the

stylish Titanium, or sporty ST-Line and ST-Line X. The

latter was my road test car which adds a flat-bottomed

leather steering wheel and alloy sports pedals. Privacy

glass sits in the rear windows.

New technology will inform the driver of hazardous

situations on the road ahead before either I or the vehicle

sensors could see them.

This Puma has a fantastic degree of practicality in a

compact and efficient package. When I came to open the

Scene Local Media 01952 780058

456 litres boot there was another surprise for a car in this

price range, as there is a hands-free tailgate. When I got

a bit acquisitive at the garden centre, as I had not visited

for a long time, it was very useful to find a MegaBox

storage solution. This will house unstable items up to

approximately 115 cm tall in an upright position. Synthetic

lining and a drain plug in the bottom made it easy to clean.

The flexible load compartment can also comfortably

accommodate a box 112 cm long, 97 cm wide and 43 cm

high with the second row of seats folded flat.

The sports suspension is not as unforgiving as some of its

competitors and I found the ride comfortable. The Desert

Island Blue exterior paintwork is an exclusive optional

colour which is very attractive. One of 10 vibrant colours to

choose from.

SUVs now account for more than one in five Ford vehicles

sold in Europe. Almost 7,000 new Pumas have been sold

in the UK since going on sale earlier this year. 90.7 per

cent of those sales are the mild-hybrid engine, available

from £21,640.

By the end of my road test week, I was quite in love with

the new Ford Puma and its sporty character, combining

mild-hybrid fuel efficiency, best-in-class luggage space and

advanced driver assistance technologies in a stylish

crossover.

Car Review

VOLKSWAGEN GOLF

By Sue Cooke

Imagine driving along minding your own

business and then your VW car tells you

that you are about to have an accident.

Your car then tells other cars behind and

around that an accident is about to

happen. The driver is warned and can react in good time.

Futuristic? No, it is here now. The new Golf is the first car in

Europe to feature Car2X technology. German automotive

association ADAC declared this as a ‘technical milestone’.

Within a radius of up to 800 metres, connected vehicles can

exchange information and warn of danger or make contact

with the traffic infrastructure within a matter of milliseconds.

The technology can also communicate with nearby traffic

lights. Following the launch of the Car2X in the new eighth

generation compact car, the technology will be available in

future VW models.

The latest Golf is the most intelligent and connected yet. Tell

the car that your hands are cold and the heated steering

wheel will automatically activate. It takes a little getting used

to the sliders and touch panels for all key functions. Many of

the interior buttons and switchgear have been removed,

giving a clean profile to the digital ‘innovision’ cockpit, which

is fitted as standard. While getting used to the controls, I

found good use of the optional natural voice recognition

system.

I like the head up display which is optional on the Golf Life

trim. The speed I am achieving, and the speed of the road

are projected onto the windscreen which keeps my eyes on

the road. All cars should have a head up display. Driving in

the dark, there are subtle strips of blue light along the inner

doors and this feature offers 32 colour options. 22 separate

LED lights perform a dynamic indicator sweep function and

dynamic curve lighting, which is great if you want to show off!

You can even set up your mobile phone so it acts as the

vehicle key. Just remember to remove the details when you

sell on your phone!

Scene Local Media 01952 780058

The Golf has been around for a while,

just 45 years with more than 35 million

examples built but number 8 is

completely new and keeps the distinctive

C pillar design to show its lineage. My

road test car arrived in a gorgeous lime yellow metallic which

costs an extra £625. I realise I must have sounded quite a

braggart, when people said what a beautiful colour and I said

yes it is isn’t it!

There is a wide choice of drivetrains, four petrol, two diesels,

three mild hybrids and a powerful GTE plug in hybrid. The

most popular is predicted to be the 1.5 litre petrol with 130PS,

a manual gearbox and ‘Life’ trim. Other trims include Style

and R-Line. I road tested the same but with 150PS.

What I always like about Volkswagen cars is the positive

steering. Accelerate and corner and the tyres will stick to the

road like glue.

The majority of sales of the new Golf are predicted to be to

the fleet sector (65%) and maybe company car drivers who

clock up high mileage will use the fantastic technology the

most, but everyone will appreciate the new safety systems.

The Golf GTi, GTE and GTD are expected to go on sale in

the UK later this year. Information on the Golf R and Golf

Estate will be revealed in the coming months.

Auction prices continue to soar –

proving now’s the time to sell!

Against a backdrop of global financial uncertainty, bidders

are spending big at auction. But while one may expect a peak

in investors stockpiling gold and quality jewellery, West

Midlands auction house Cuttlestones has noticed an uplift in

prices across the board – with some surprises along the way.

Having adjusted its business model during lockdown to

100% online auctions to safeguard both staff and customers

at its sale rooms in Penkridge and Wolverhampton, the firm

has reaped the benefits and attracted a new audience of

bidders – and seen an uplift in prices along the way.

‘Traditional’ big-sellers – such as collectible coins, watches,

fine jewellery and gold continue to perform well, with sellers

able to rest assured that lots will sell based on their intrinsic

value rather than the dreaded ‘scrap price’. However, the uplift

has also been noticed in lots that have been ‘off-trend’ until

recently, as Ben explains:

“We’ve got a global audience of engaged bidders who are

willing to part with their cash, so there really has never been

a better time to sell at auction. Even ‘traditional’ ceramics

which, until recently, held limited appeal, as flying – for

example, a tray of Royal Albert Floral Crown teaware, which

a few months ago would have struggled to achieve £100, saw

the hammer fall at £950; whilst Lot 125 – a tray of mixed

Wedgwood Jasperware – achieved £320.

“These are the kind of things that many households have so,

why not clear out the clutter or part with that tea service

that’s been languishing in the loft for the past decade?”

Health Special:

If you are

Optimism

Drinking

Coffee Can

Prevent

Depression

Can

seeing the glass

half full help you live

longer?

Studies have found that there is a

correlation between increasing levels

of optimism with decreasing levels of

death from cancer, disease, infection

and stroke. This is particularly true for

cases of cardiovascular disease.

Those who had the highest levels

of optimism had an almost

40% lower risk of heart

disease.

ATM Machines and Public Toilets

Are Equally Dirty

Withdrawing money from a cash machine is

something many of us do regularly, but how

many of us give our hands a wash after using

them? Cleanliness tests carried out in Britain

found that ATM machines were as dirty as

the toilets. Specialists investigated swabs

taken from the cash machine keyboards and

from public toilets nearby and found both

samples had the same bacteria known to

lead to sickness.

We hear a lot about

the negative effects of caffeine

on our health, but it turns out that

caffeine has its good points too.

Research from the Harvard School of

Public Health found that women who

drank a minimum of four cups of coffee

per day could lower their risk of

depression by 20 per cent. Earlier

research also found that females who

drank two or more cups per day were

less likely to commit suicide.

The strongest muscle in

your body is ….

Our muscle strength can be measured in

different ways. If you are referring to the

muscle that can exert the most force,

then your calf muscle, the soleus, would

be the winner. However, if you want to

find the muscle that can exert the most

pressure, then the jaw muscle, or the

masseter, would be the strongest. The

human jaw can close teeth with a force as

great as 200 pounds, or 890 newtons!

If you are physically tired, the best

thing to do is exercise as it will give

you more energy than sitting. Studies

have found that the blood and oxygen

flow through the body will give you

more energy and improve your mood.

The increase in endorphin levels can

contribute to a feeling of well-being.

Chewing Gum Makes You

More Alert

If your suffering from a mid-afternoon

slump or can’t seem to concentrate in

the morning, then try chewing some

gum to make you feel awake. Coventry

University researchers found that

chewing mint flavoured gum

dramatically reduced feelings of

tiredness. Another study on the subject

found that chewing gum can improve

overall test scores and memory by

35 per cent, relieve stress and

reduce anxiety levels.

Sit-Ups Won’t Give You A Flat Stomach

Many people fall into the trap of thinking that they

can achieve a flat stomach by doing crunches. But

the truth is, endless amounts of crunches won’t give

you the stomach of your dreams - as the exercise

only works your abs, not your core muscles. One

study published in the Journal of Strength and

Conditioning Research found carrying out six

weeks of abdominal exercises alone was not enough

to reduce abdominal fat.

JOKES:

I invited my girlfriend to go to the gym with me and then

I didn’t show.

I hope she gets the message that we’re not working out.

Why doesn't the bell ring at the gym?

It's a dumb-bell.

Saw an idiot on a treadmill in the gym...

They just put their water bottle in the pringles can holder.

My wife accused me of being immature.

I told her to get out of my fort.

I broke my finger last week. On the other hand, I'm OK!

Just been to the gym and there's a new machine there.

I only used it for about an hour, as I started to feel sick,

but it's great: it's got KitKats, Mars bars, crisps and

everything in it.

Care in the community

Could a WATCH alarm give

you peace of mind?

WATCH alarms offer peace of mind and reassurance to people all across Telford &

Wrekin and Shropshire, as well as their families and friends. The pendant alarm service

is not just for older people - people of all ages can benefit from it. WATCH is ideal for

people with disabilities, medical restrictions, life-limiting conditions and vulnerabilities.

The service supports individuals looking to technology to help them remain

independent in their own homes with the reassurance that help is available at the

touch of a button - 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

The lifeline pendant alarm simply connects to a phone line and is operated by the

touch of a button, via a pendant worn around the neck or wrist. A powerful microphone

on the alarm unit means that help can be called from anywhere in and around the

property.

The alarm can also be adapted to each person’s needs with a range of add-on

equipment such as falls detectors, door contact sensors and pill dispensers.

Customer, Miss Egan, explains: “I’m epileptic and with my WATCH alarm I know that if I

have a fit my mum will be called or a paramedic can get in if necessary.”

WATCH also offers to supply and fit police approved key safes. This is useful for people

who receive care at home. For WATCH alarm customers, the code is stored safely with

the monitoring centre to be shared with emergency services if required.

WATCH is certified under the Quality Standards Framework by TEC Quality which provides assurance to its users that they deliver

quality in what is otherwise a largely unregulated industry

What landlords need to know

about the new electrical safety laws

Landlords face tough financial penalties if they fail to comply with new electrical safety laws. The government has already announced that it

intends to introduce legislation requiring landlords to carry out additional electrical checks.

Now it’s taking things a step further by insisting that these checks are completed by a fully qualified workmen.

WHAT ELECTRICAL QUALIFICATIONS WILL BE REQUIRED?

However, what these fully qualified inspectors actually look like has

yet to be decided, with the government still to publish further

details.

What’s known is that the workmen will be required to carry out the

tests in line with existing British Standards (known as BS7671),

which cover the safety of electrical installations.

But the government insists the requirements won’t place ‘excessive

cost and time burdens on landlords’.

REDUCING THE RISK OF FAULTY ELECTRICS

The Minister for Housing and Homelessness, Heather Wheeler MP

said: “These new measures will reduce the risk of faulty electrical

equipment, giving people peace of mind and helping to keep them

safe in their homes.

“It will also provide clear guidance to landlords on who they should

be hiring to carry out these important electrical safety checks.”

ELECTRICAL CHECKS EVERY FIVE YEARS

The measures follow a consultation carried out a year ago into

electrical safety in the private rented sector.

In response to the consultation, the government announced last

July that regulations would be introduced requiring landlords to

undertake safety checks of their ‘electrical installations’ every

five years.

The government has defined these ‘electrical installations’ as ‘the

installations within a dwelling used for the supply of electricity’, and

cites ‘consumer units’ rather than individual electrical items such as

kettles as an example.

It says the new regulations requiring landlords to have electrical

installations in privately rented homes checked every five years will

be brought in ‘as soon as parliamentary time allows’.

Starting with new tenancies, it intends to introduce the new

requirements on a phased basis.

SUPPORTING TENANTS TO FEEL SAFE

The government says the measures build on action to drive up

standards in the private rented sector, helping people to feel safe at

home.

Ministers have also introduced new powers for councils to tackle any

rogue landlords renting out poor quality properties, including fines of

up to £30,000 and banning orders for landlords who do not comply.

mortgage paid on our

homes this autumn

Home hunters wanting to move into a new-build

property in the coming months could have their

stamp duty paid or six months of their mortgage

paid thanks to a housebuilder’s new campaign.

Time to be Moved – launched by Bovis Homes – part

of the newly-formed Vistry Group – aims to take the

stress out of moving for those climbing or putting

their first foot on the housing ladder.

Buyers can also choose a flooring package from the

campaign, which can be used on two to fivebedroom

homes, alongside other incentives

including the extended key workers initiative and

the Government’s Help to Buy scheme.

Louise Macrae, regional marketing manager at Bovis

Homes, said: “We’re delighted to launch our Time

to be Moved campaign which promises to take the

hassle of the moving process away from home

buyers. Purchasers can choose from aeither 12

months the mortgage paid offer or a full home the

stamp duty or flooring packages. on offer. The

flooring option can also be used alongside the Help

to Buy scheme. The mortgage paid offer includes

almost all our homes across the region and the

stamp duty break is applicable on all our new

homes.

“The mortgage-paid offer will take buyers up to the

middle of December and beyond meaning they can

take some of the pressure out of Christmas this year

by being able to save more efficiently. Bovis Homes

properties are offered in great locations with open

green spaces and plenty of new walkways.

“They can be used for properties in our new housing

range, which offer more space with wider hallways,

open plan living and en suites and flexible living

space.”

For buyers who own their own home already, the

option to use Bovis Homes’ Smooth Move or Home

initiatives is available.

Bovis Homes’ Home Exchange sees the

housebuilder buying the customer's current property,

which means they can avoid all those estate agent

fees and time-consuming house chains. It also means

that purchasers can stay in their current house until

their new home is ready.

To part-exchange their home, a customer’s current

property must be valued at no more than 75 per cent

Using the Help to Buy – Equity Loan scheme, home

buyers need just a five per cent cash deposit, with

the Government providing an equity loan of up to

20 per cent of the value of the property being

bought. Purchasers then need to secure up to a 75

per cent mortgage.

Bovis Homes already runs an attractive purchasing

package for key workers, which has now been

extended until the end of 2020 to include all those

who have signed up for the recent NHS volunteer

scheme – as well as all those newly-classified by the

Government as key workers in the battle against the

coronavirus.

Properties in Bovis Homes’ new collection focus on

well-proportioned exteriors with a real sense of light

and flow on the inside. They are named after British

of the new Bovis Home they wish to purchase. Bovis

Homes will arrange for the buyer's property to be

valued, then make them an offer based on the

valuation.

Alternatively, buyers looking to sell their home can

take advantage of the housebuilder’s Smooth Move

scheme, which can save time and thousands of

pounds, with the home builder liaising with the

estate agent on the customer's behalf, as well as

paying the fees.
