Fresh Thinking

Solution Focused Hypnotherapy.

Feeling anxious? For how much longer?

...I help people get their lives back on track, working

with areas such as:

• Anxiety • Depression • Insomnia

• Fears/Phobias • Focus/Motivation ...and much more!

Whether you are feeling down, lacking in motivation or would just like to be

able to sleep better, I can help you get the results you are looking for. You don’t

have to believe you can change, you just need to want the change.

I work very successfully with people from all walks of life who are suffering

from all manner of anxiety and anxiety related difficulties. I help them

overcome the problems they are struggling with so they can get back to being

their real selves and achieve more enjoyment from life.

Happy clients…

“I admit I was sceptical but from the minute I met Cathy for the initial

consultation I was on the road to recovery” Lyndsey from Littleborough

“Cathy’s solution focused sessions are just amazing!” Jackie from Milnrow

“After each session I felt more and more relaxed and positive and I am

delighted to say I now have my life back” Martin from Norden

(more testimonies can be found on my website)

Welcome to

our October Issue!

We hope that you and your families

have enjoyed a well-earned break

over the summer months.

We love this month’s front cover which

supports everything local. Over the past

few months, we have all been faced

with difficulties and this includes our

local businesses which is why it’s so

important that we continue to support

them throughout the ongoing months.

As always Streetwise features a great

selection of these businesses and

tradesmen so ensure that you always

keep your copy handy!

As life returns to normality, we are

delighted to see that the community

spirit is still very much alive. Despite the

recent damage caused by thoughtless

intruders, Moss Row Allotments has

provided a sanctuary for many of its plot

holders with some wonderful crops on

display comprising wonky veg as well

as a great array of flowering plants.

The Friends of Bamford have recently

added two benches in the Community

Garden at the back of Bamford Green

as well as a wonderful children’s area

which includes a squirrel log, three

mushrooms and a carved log!

Dippy the Dinosaur is back at No 1

Riverside and will be in residence

until 12th December.

Until November...

In a nail biting few moments on Ebay and with only 4 seconds to spare,

John recently managed to win a painting by local artist Lisa Haselden, paying £620

with all proceeds donated to the NHS.

Like so many of us, John is a great admirer of Sir Tom Moore and was particularly

attracted by the two wartime fighter planes in the painting.

With Lisa’s permissions, he has had a limited number of prints produced at a cost

of £95 each and all proceeds will be shared between Springhill Hospice,

East Lancashire Masonic Charity and the British Heart Foundation.

If you are interested in purchasing one of these, please contact John

on 01706 656021 or call in at J&D Alexander Jewellers on The Walk,

Rochdale anytime between 9.30-4pm, Wednesday to Saturday.

LK

HYPNOTHERAPY AND HYPNOBIRTHING SPECIALIST

WHAT IS HYPNOTHERAPY?

Hypnotherapy is a form of therapy that has been used for centuries and popular in the present

day. It uses the power of suggestion to encourage positive change and can be used for many

different things including quitting a habit, managing and controlling weight as well as

controlling pain, insomnia, anxiety, stress, phobias, emotional trauma, depression and fertility.

WHAT IS HYPNOBIRTHING?

Hypnobirthing is a method of pain management that can be used during labour and birth.

Over four sessions I work with the expectant Mum and her partner using a mixture of

visualisation, mindfulness and breathing techniques which help to focus the body and mind on

the ultimate birth of the baby. I can also help with any morning sickness, headaches,

self-esteem, and healthy eating. My services also include a free hypnobirthing book for you to

read and practice at home. I will also share some previous client’s hypnobirthing journeys with

you as it always helps to hear about other people’s experiences.

I also work with parents struggling with all the new feelings of becoming a parent from

post-natal depression, anxiety or just to help you relax when you have the time!

CHRIS CLARKSON MP

Serving the people of Heywood & Middleton Constituency

including, Bamford, Castleton & Norden

Well, it’s been an interesting summer and I have had

the privilege of getting out more into the constituency

to meet and speak to some of the people who have

become the heroes of the coronavirus crisis.

Whether delivering shopping to people who were

unable to get to a supermarket or signing up to help at

testing centres or our Nightingale Hospitals, I have been hearing the moving

stories and tremendous efforts that local people have gone to, helping others in need. I have

been truly honoured to thank them on behalf of our community.

My office has received correspondence from a number of residents concerned with speeding

traffic. I know that this has become more of a problem during the lockdown whilst roads

have been quiet so I have raised this as a specific area of concern with Greater Manchester

Police and asked them to ensure that this is high on their list of priorities for our area and I

am pleased to see that speed check operations are already taking place.

I was pleased to chat with local business owners who have benefited from Government

support during the coronavirus crisis. From business grants to the furlough scheme and

support payments for the self-employed, it is reassuring to hear how this financial support

has kept these local enterprises going during these extremely tough times.

Thank you to everyone who is respecting the local rules. I am in weekly contact with the

Chief Executive at Rochdale Council to review local covid-19 infection rates and I have been

pushing for our localised data to be used in the review

of maintaining or lifting the enhanced

measures that we currently have in place.

If you would like to contact me about a

matter of local concern or national policy

I would welcome your correspondence

to my constituency office, contact details

are provided below.

Dippy

on Tour

A Natural History Adventure

has Reopened in Rochdale

Dippy, the world famous dinosaur cast

from the Natural History Museum, is set to

welcome visitors in Rochdale once again

as its national tour resumed on Monday

7th September.

Dippy on Tour, A Natural History Adventure,

opened in Rochdale, its only North West stop,

in February this year. The exhibit proved a star

attraction, with almost 115,000 visitors coming

to see the dinosaur cast in Number One Riverside

and the accompanying exhibition at Touchstones

Rochdale, before the tour was suspended in

March due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Dippy’s stay in Rochdale was originally due to

end on 28th June, but visitors will now be able

to see the famous dinosaur cast at Number One

Riverside and experience the Dippy exhibition at

Touchstones Rochdale until 12th December.

The extended run has been arranged to allow

people plenty of time to meet Dippy safely,

before he moves on to his final stop, Norwich

Cathedral.

Dippy on Tour is being brought to Number One

Riverside, Rochdale and visitors across the UK by

the Natural History Museum in partnership with

the Garfield Weston Foundation, and supported

by Dell EMC and Williams & Hill.

A number of additional measures have been put

in place at both venues to keep visitors safe.

Cleaning will be significantly increased and

numbers will be restricted to allow people to

maintain a safe distance inside.

Hand sanitisers will be available throughout the

venues and hands on parts of the exhibitions,

including the sensory room and dino discovery

lab, have been removed. Visitors can drop in and

see Dippy at Number One Riverside, but the Dippy

exhibition at Touchstones will need to be booked

in advance.

Councillor Janet Emsley, cabinet member for

neighbourhoods, community and culture at

Rochdale Borough Council, said: “We’re delighted

to be able to welcome visitors once again and

connect audiences across the region with this

incredible piece of natural history.

“We’ve made some changes to the exhibition

to keep everybody safe, and both Number One

Riverside and Touchstones Rochdale have been

awarded the ‘We’re Good to Go’ Covid-19 industry

standard and consumer mark by Visit Britain. The

fact that the Dippy experience will be with us

until December also gives people plenty to time

to see him, so we can support social distancing

and keep everybody safe. People absolutely don’t

need to come at once.

“To help keep people safe, we’re also asking

visitors to only attend with members of their

own household, as per government guidelines

currently covering most of Greater Manchester,

and for visitors to follow government guidance on

face coverings.”

Just down the road at Touchstones Museum and

Art Gallery, the accompanying Dippy exhibition

has also reopened. But visitors have an extra

surprise in store with a narrated guided tour

taking place on certain days. Throughout

the tour, visitors will be guided by a team of

‘scientists’ who have travelled back in time to

gather information about the past with the help

of the audience.

They will learn about the dinosaurs, what

Rochdale was like 240 million years ago and

about the environment today, so they can go

back to the future, having found the world’s

missing knowledge, to create a better planet for

everybody.

Darren Grice, Deputy Chief Executive of Link4Life,

the charity behind the cultural venue, said:

“We’re really excited to welcome the public

back to Touchstones Rochdale and the totally

re-imagined Dippy exhibition, which is now led by

time travelling scientists! Thanks to support from

the National Lottery Heritage Emergency Fund,

families can visit for free but to help us manage

numbers and keep everyone safe, tickets for the

Dippy exhibition need to be pre-booked online.”

Opening hours for meeting Dippy at Number One

Riverside are:

• Monday to Friday - 9am to 5pm

• Saturdays - 9.30am to 5pm

Opening hours for the Dippy Exhibition at

Touchstones Rochdale are:

• Monday- Saturday 9.30am-4.30pm

The Dippy shop, located at Number One Riverside,

is open from 10.30am to 4.30pm from Tuesday to

Friday and from 10.30am to 4pm on Saturdays.

Toilets and baby changing facilities are available

at both sites.

Freya Stannard, Head of National Programmes

at The Natural History Museum, said: “We are

thrilled that Dippy on Tour is now able to welcome

back visitors. We have worked with Rochdale

to implement new measures and extend the

exhibition to allow plenty of time for people to

visit when they feel confident in doing so.

“We look forward to Dippy doing what he does

best once again, inspiring people and encouraging

a love for the natural world that we hope people

will carry with them long after their visit.”

Customer services also reopened at Number One

Riverside on Monday 7th September, but there

will be limited access and customers will use

a separate entrance. The customer services

section of the ground floor has been separated

from the Dippy exhibition area to help keep

visitors and customers safe.

Libraries, including the one at Number One

Riverside, will remain closed for the time being

to reduce the risk of infection through handling

books and using public computers, but a

dedicated request and collect service has been

launched to enable people to order books and

pick up from selected libraries.

Philippa Charles, Director of the Garfield Weston

Foundation, said: “We are delighted that Dippy

is now able to resume his adventure in Rochdale

and get back to his mission to inspire people

to explore the nature on their doorstep. Dippy’s

purpose has never been more important and

we are so pleased that Number One Riverside is

enabling people to visit Dippy safely.”

MOSs ROW ALlOTMENTS

LOoking back, it’s bEen

a strange year in many ways

The lock down came in March with strict guidelines to follow on the

Allotments. Although the Government allowed access to allotments for plot

holders a few chose to stay away this year. For others who visited regularly it

was a life saver especially for those with no outdoor space.

The weather also was strange this year with a heatwave in April and May

and then the two nights of devastating frost. It was like month reversal with

glorious sunshine in April and then

frequent showers and cool in July.

Regardless of these events there have

been some bumper crops and examples

of wonky veg. Flowering plants have also

looked pretty and it is a shame that the

Allotments have not been open to visitors.

Unfortunately, the Communal and Wildlife

areas are untidy and the hedge has

become overgrown. The first working

party since March will take place in

September to address these problems.

Strict guidelines will be adhered to

with no tea and coffee time. If this is

successful, then the monthly working

parties can recommence.

Another problem as reported last time, is

the intruders to the site causing damage

and theft. This is most upsetting to all the

plot holders. All we want is to continue

with our hobby and collect the result of

our hard work. Measures were put in

place to deter the intruders, but they have

now cut a large hole in the fence.

62 To advertise call 07976 289967 or 07974 434793 or email sales@streetwisemag.co.uk


There must be more than one person

as a large metal frame from a walk-in

plastic greenhouse has been stolen. The

fence will now be inspected regularly

and any holes repaired immediately.

The Allotment members will help anyone

to become established in gardening

or the growing of produce, as we have

done in the past. All people need to do

is ask instead of this underhand way

which causes upset all round.

If anyone sees or hears of anything

suspicious, no matter how trivial,

on the Allotments then please email

our website. We would dearly like to

apprehend the culprits.

Thoughts now are turning to next

year with preparations in progress. In

November we are expecting a delivery

of hedge whips, courtesy of the

Woodland Trust, which will be planted

to infill any gaps in the hedge.

Work on the Allotments will continue

but who knows what 2021 will bring.

Friends of Bamford Update

Despite the severe restrictions placed

on all of us in 2020 and the forced

cancellation of all Friends of Bamford

community events, there has been

some progress with the Community

Garden at the back of Bamford Green,

so here is an update.

The Community Garden was planted up by

volunteers in June, with plants donated by the

community when the ordered plants failed to

materialize due to lockdown. It’s coming along

nicely now and by the time you read this the

original trees shrubs and plants may have

even turned up and been planted, giving them

time to establish over the winter and hopefully

produce a glorious display next year.

Two benches have now been put in place

alongside the path round the garden and

are already being extensively used by the

community to sit and watch the world go by.

A new litter bin has been placed at the

Bamford Mews end of the path, and although

there will always be those who can’t be

bothered putting their rubbish in the bin, most

are more considerate, for which, thank you.

A Children’s Area has now been

established, with a squirrel bench, a

carved log and three mushrooms! Parents,

grandparents and carers, please note, this

equipment is meant to be used and not

just looked at! The squirrel gets very lonely

if children don’t talk to him, stroke him and

have their photos taken with him!

For further details see our Facebook page Friends of Bamford

Our webpage https:/friendsofbamford.wixsite.com/community

Email us at friendsofbamford@gmail.com

The mushrooms are meant to be sat on,

jumped over, run round and leapfrogged,

and the carved log, the only limit is your

imagination. It can be a space rocket, a

pirate ship, a formula one racing car or

a balance beam, and much more. The

carvings on it represent the flora and fauna

found nearby and are meant to encourage

the children to look for them and stimulate

their interest in the environment.

The Woods nearby, except for the paths,

have been left very much as nature planted

them, except for a bit of tree pruning.

Some of the felled branches have been

used as natural looking edging for the

paths, but apart from that, they are as

nature intended. It is hoped that next year

bird boxes and feeders can be put up to

encourage more wildlife.

The Wildflower Meadow. Mmm. Not

a lot going on here yet, it was rotavated

and seeded by RMBC sometime during

lockdown, but not a lot seems to be

happening yet. Perhaps next year…

Thanks to the FOB community and

volunteers, especially residents of

Bamford Mews, who help in any way

they can to make this community

garden and woodland an asset to

Bamford that we can all enjoy.

Hospice launches virtual event to challenge

local community and raise vital funds

Springhill Hospice has launched a virtual event to get supporters to

take on their very own challenge to help fundraise for the local charity.

The Sofa to Summit Challenge has been set up by the Hospice in light of the recent pandemic which has

had a huge impact on the usual annual events organised by the Hospice. Most of which have had to be

cancelled meaning there has been a financial impact on the charity.

Sofa to Summit is a virtual event that invites supporters to take on their own challenge, in their own way, to raise

money for the Hospice. This can be anything from swimming 100 lengths at the local pool to walking the length

of your favourite mountain trek on the streets of Rochdale or from your back garden. The challenge allows you

to choose the activity to suit you, all while raising money for the much loved local Hospice.

Maria Dilkes, a key worker and teacher employed in a local primary school is the first person to sign up to the

Sofa to Summit challenge. Maria’s grandmother, Brenda O’Rourke, passed away in June and was cared for

at home by the Springhill Hospice Community Nursing team.

Maria has challenged herself to take on a sponsored walk

for the Hospice to raise money.

“I am walking 200km in six weeks for Springhill Hospice’s Sofa to

Summit challenge. It’s a huge personal and physical challenge for

an amazing Hospice that went above and beyond to care for my

Nan at the end of her life.

“Even though this year has been very different, I’m really glad that

Springhill Hospice have a challenge like this so that people can still

show their support, take on their own challenge at their own pace

and fundraise for such a special place.”

Barbara Lloyd, Community Support Fundraisier at Springhill

Hospice said,

“The Sofa to Summit virtual challenge is a great way to push and challenge yourself whilst staying safe

and following Government guidance. It can provide a welcome change to the daily routine and a chance

to ‘move more’ after all these weeks in lockdown.

“With the number of events cancelled this year due to the outbreak of Coronavirus, it also offers a fun and

innovative way to help raise vital funds for the Hospice that everyone of all ages can enjoy. It would be

lovely to have as many people as possible taking part.”

If you would like to take part in the challenge and help raise vital funds for the Hospice to continue

giving care to its patients and their families, visit https://springhill.org.uk/sofa-to-summit, email

y the time you read this the latest draft of the Greater Manchester patial Framework may

have been released and we will know what is planned for our Greenbelt area. The paths and

fields have been so well used during the last few months walkers, cyclists and horse riders

have all been taking advantage of the beautiful open spaces during lockdown and it would be

very sad if this was lost to our community.

s usual, we have been dealing with residents problems and requests. mongst the issues we

have dealt with are quad bike riding, speeding and inconsiderate driving generally. We have a

good relationship with our community police officers and are working alongside them to

combat these problems. t the last Township meeting funding was approved for speed bumps

along Martlett ve, as this has been a problem area for some time. We have also been dealing

with issues relating to lockdown breaches and quarantine rules, along with the planning issues

and waste collections.

We really miss our meetings with residents at our surgeries, forums and local coffee mornings.

Hopefully we will be able to see you all soon. In the meantime, you can always get in touch

Your Ward Councillors are here all year round to offer help and advice on a wide range of local issues

ots of people have been contacting us about crime in and around the village. We are

working with our community policing team and our local MP to ensure that these

concerns are being discussed at the highest level and action taken to tackle crime here.

We were pleased to hear back that local officers had recently made arrests relating to

crimes that had been committed in Norden and are continuing to patrol hotspot areas.

With the help of some excellent staff at T we have had the old phone box at the bus

terminus removed following complaints from local businesses that it had become the

focus of antisocial behaviour. This was a box which had already been disconnected due to

a lack of regular use but we have ensured that there are still other working boxes in the

area for those who need them.

We are very pleased to report that the highways team have been busy with the

resurfacing of Industry and Clapgate treet and Elmsfield venue. The road markings

team have also looked at a few problem areas including unction of Whitaker ane and

Further Field.

We were saddened to see that the rescheduled Tour de Manc charity cycle ride has had to

be cancelled. The team made a valiant effort to try and move the date to later in the year

but despite their best endeavours they have had to postpone until 1. We are really

looking forward to supporting them again next year.

From The Archives

THE OLD TOWN HALL TOWER

Due to the extraordinary increase in

industrial wealth of the town in the

18th and 19th century it was felt that

Rochdale should have a formal town hall

to recognise the fact.

Before the middle of the 19th century the

town had used a number of buildings for

its civic activities, a study by Maxim in

1959 suggesting that council business had

been held on Blackwater Street and at a

Law Commissioner office on Smith Street.

With the town’s Charter of Incorporation

in 1856 Rochdale became a municipal

borough and pressure was on for a proper

town hall, one proposal coming forward in

1858 to house the Gas Company in it with

gas profits going towards its building. A

number of sites were suggested amongst

them Town Head House, Butts House, Wet

Rake, the house of a Mr Kelsall on Smith

Street where the Wellington now stands,

The Orchard (being the Byron family manor

where Newgate is now) and an area called

The Wood. The latter was voted for and the

Woods Estate was purchased from the Vicar

of Rochdale for the site for £4,730.

Originally the Town Hall was intended to

house an Exchange, the entrance hall long

being known by that name as well as a

Free Library, Art School, Fire Station and

a residence for a Police constable, which

didn’t happen. For guidance in 1863 a

committee from Rochdale visited Halifax,

Leeds and Preston looking at the costs of

such buildings and then undercut them all

with a proposed budget of £20,000. The

eventual cost rose to £154,755 although

Councillor George Leach Ashworth thought

it worth it, writing ‘we cannot have beauty

without paying for it.’ And certainly,

Rochdale Town Hall, designed by W H

Crossland was to be a magnificent example

of the medieval gothic based on the style

of Belgian cloth halls. The Lord Mayor

alongside Councillor Ashworth was there

in 1871 to perform the opening ceremony

five years after John Bright had laid the first

cornerstone.

But the town hall tower we see today was

not the original one. The first tower, much

taller, was a painted and gilded spire with

a wooden frame of 240 ft on top of which

stood a ring of trumpeting

angels below a symbolic 12ft

statue of St George and the

Dragon which, including its

lead covering, weighed 30 cwt

(or 1500 Kilograms). At one

point when the statue was in

need of repair Joseph Smith

(Rochdale’s version of Fred

Dibner) climbed to the top

up the lightning conductor

fastened to St George in order

to carry it out. In the original

tower was a carillon of 12

70

bells which not only chimed the hours and

quarters but also played 14 tunes including

Rule Britannia, Auld Lang Syne, Yankee

Doodle and Home Sweet Home. The old

clock itself had a dial of 12ft in diameter,

the weights to drive the clock being 1 ton

each and having to be hoisted through 70ft

against gravity. Evidently a Mr Deakin,

living in Granville Square, used to wind the

weights up every Sunday.

Nine years after opening the building, in

1882, dry rot was spotted in the wooden

structure of the spire and the borough

Surveyor Mr Platt recommended demolition

as far down as the stone battlements. The

council agreed and work was started.

However, at 9.30pm on April 10th 1883,

whether caused by a gas leak as was

suggested or whether it was arson, during

a concert at the Public Hall (not the Town

Hall) by Rochdale Choral Society singing

‘Elijah,’ fire broke out in the tower. Acting

like a chimney with a fierce flue, the clock

tower which housed many library items

went up like a torch although some brave

council workers went into the fire to rescue

some of the books.

Not only was the Free Library destroyed but

so were the Town Clerk’s chambers. The fire

was huge and could be seen as far away as

Blackstone Edge. Fortunately, no-one died

although two police constables inside the

library were badly burned. A large crowd

gathered on the Esplanade to watch the

blaze and cheered as the steam engines and

pumps from Milnrow and Oldham arrived.

A telegram to the Heywood fire crew found

their telegraph office closed so they didn’t

arrive until next morning.

At about 10.40pm to the cries of on-lookers,

the figure of St George and the Dragon fell

to earth. Early next day some people took

souvenirs from the pavement of the statue’s

wood carving and gold leaf and metal from

the old bells that had melted and crashed to

the ground. Insurance covered part-cost of

the disaster of £17,800 although the overall

damage was £20,000.

The replacement tower, completed in 1887

and designed by the architect A Waterhouse

who also designed Manchester Town Hall,

is 49 feet shorter than the original one

but holds additional weight of bells. It is

felt by many to be in better proportion to

the rest of the building, some considering

that the old tower made it look more like a

cathedral than a town hall. A great deal of

the stonework from the old tower was buried

but some say that masonry was salvaged

and used in the garden walls of cottages

near the Elephant and Castle on Bury Road,

a case of early but heavy re-cycling!

If you have any comments about the old Town Hall tower or the Town Hall,

I’d be delighted to hear from you and add them to a growing Rochdale

archive on the subject. Please contact Gary Heywood-Everett at

Springhill Hospice recognised

by The Princess Royal for Training Award

City and Guilds Group has announced that Springhill Hospice has been

commended by the 2020 Princess Royal Training

Awards, for their education and training programme.

Springhill’s Education Team has been chosen to receive one of the

prestigious awards thanks to the unique programme made to upskill its

own staff along with the wider community in palliative care support. Over

800 individuals have completed the free-of-charge training resulting in

an increased level of skills, knowledge and confidence when working

with patients to offer end-of-life support.

Now in its fifth year, the Princess Royal Training Awards recognises

employers across the United Kingdom with outstanding training and

development programmes that have had a direct impact on increasing

staff development.

Springhill Hospice was one of 39 different organisations to meet the

standards required to receive this award across the UK.

Chief Executive of Springhill Hospice, Julie Halliwell said,

“I’m very proud of our Education Team for the work they have put in,

especially during the last few months where the challenges stemming

from Covid-19 have caused them to adapt and find new ways to

maintain staff training.

“To receive the Princess Royal Training Award has been another accolade

for the Hospice, which we are incredibly proud of, and demonstrates the

real value of the training we provide throughout the Borough.”

During 2020, training, especially online, has been vital whilst dealing with

a pandemic. For Springhill, it was the further development of skills for both staff and external partners to operate

as normal and provide the highest level of care possible despite the unprecedented challenges.

Jane Ashworth, Palliative Care Education Lead at Springhill Hospice said,

“We’re incredibly happy to receive this award and to be recognised for the hard work we’ve put in to educate

and train staff along with all health and social care staff in Heywood, Middleton and Rochdale who provide a

high level of care to patients within the borough.

“People access hospice services at a very vulnerable time, but can be reassured that the care they and their

families receive will be delivered with empathy, knowledge and by a skilled workforce.

“Being acknowledged for such a prestigious award gives us a lot of reassurance that what we are doing at

the Hospice is necessary, and that the people of our community can put their faith in our staff”

Previous winners have reported a number of benefits arising from the awards, including increased investment into

training programmes, improved recruitment and retention, and

getting HR and Learning and Development to the table when it

comes to business strategy; all of which will be useful as

businesses work towards recovery post-Covid.

Over £500 raised for Mind by Norden Co-op

The team at the Co-op in Norden have raised

over £500 for mental health charity Mind after

undertaking a sponsored cycle on Saturday

29th August.

The eight members of staff on duty took part

outside the store between 10am and 2pm, joined

by Paul Ellison, chairman of NEEVA (Norden

Environmental and Economic Village Association).

The day saw members of the public enjoying the

raffle, tombola, lucky dip and watching the staff

pedal to reach their goal.

Store manager Rebecca said: “It is so important

especially in the current pandemic and with lots

of people needing support, I am sure the money

raised will help Mind support people in need in

our communities.”

Paul added: “I’d like to welcome general managers

Rebecca and Tom to the village. It’s great to see

their enthusiasm for taking part in community

events, which is a big aspect of Norden.”

NORDEN WI UPDATE

Norden Wi have been keeping in touch during 2020

lockdown and have met, social distanced of course,

for a natter in Jubilee park.

Unfortunately not all our members are on email so we have

not had zoom meetings like some clubs but we have all been

there for each other through these very strange times. Chris

our president has written a newsletter each month to keep us up to date with things nationally

and in Lancashire.

We cant wait to be able to meet again and when we get the go ahead we will be returning to

the heart of Norden. We will be meeting at St Pauls Church Hall on the FIRST THURSDAY of

each month. We will keep you informed and will be welcoming members and new prospective

members to our meetings. It will be good to get together again.

Keep a lookout for announcements and posters around the village and area.

There will be a lot going on in 2021 as it will be Lancashire Federation of WI’s

Centenary plus 1- we will be celebrating seeing as all events scheduled for this year

have had to be cancelled.

IN THE GARDEN

GARDENING TIPS AND ADVICE

FOR OCTOBER

1. Early Autumn is the perfect time to move trees and shrubs whilst they approach dormancy

and the soil is still warm.

2. Lift and divide clumps of crowded herbaceous perennials. This helps to rejuvenate the plant,

providing more flowers and a better shape for next year.

3. Plant Spring bulbs either in the border as a space filler (Allium’s & Daffodils), in the lawn for

a splash of colour (Snakes Head Fritilleries, Crocus’s or Dwarf Daffodils) or in containers for

a beautiful patio display (Tulip’s).

4. Sow hardy annual seeds in the ground where they are to grow for an earlier

display next Summer. Try Nigella Damascena (Love-in-a-mist) or

Centaurea Cyanus (Cornflower).

5. It’s not too late to have a go at growing some vegetables. Garlic cloves

can planted now as can broad beans in the soil where they are to grow.

These will be ready to harvest from as early as May next year.

6. October is still a good month to lay turf onto prepared, raked ground. Or

to improve your existing lawn, rake up any moss and thatch build up and

improve lawn drainage with a hollow tined aerator.

Andy P Collins Wealth Management Limited

The only constant in

our lives is change,

an oxymoron but

nevertheless true!

There have been

changes during the last

three months focusing

many people’s thoughts

on what they want

out of life and their future goals. One recurring

theme I have come across with clients, is what

they expected to happen, maybe has or hasn’t

happened, but more often than not certainly didn’t

happen in the way they envisaged.

I help individuals, business owners and Directors

make better financial decisions.

I can’t change the events that shape your future,

however, I can ensure that you’re prepared with a

bespoke plan, and your resources are employed

focused on desired objectives. As part of my

understanding you as an individual, I review

existing plans to ensure they are fit for purpose,

and your current wealth is protected, should the

change not be one you had planned.

It may be a personal change, a business change,

a change of role or family circumstances – the

constant, is change.

So, if you don’t have a plan or just wish to check

that what you have in place is working with you

towards your goal, then a discussion is a great

place to start.

Andy is widely regarded as a Financial Services

business leader with a demonstrated history of

success at board level. His thirty plus years of

Financial services experience have enabled him to

draw on a wealth of knowledge and skills. During

that time, he has held Head of sales, Director and

Senior management roles with some of the UK’s

leading institutions.

Passionate about Financial Planning and Wealth

Management, in 2018 he accepted an invitation

to join the prestigious St. James’s Place Wealth

Management as an Associate Partner Practice and

run his own business. The business has grown, and

now has the capacity to take on more new clients

with office locations in Rochdale and Leeds.

I offer a truly holistic service to existing and new

clients and have access to the St. James’s Place

distinctive approach to investment management

and advice guarantee, ensuring that individuals

and business owners have the right planning, in

the right place at the right time.

Planning is everything – simple or complex,

business or personal, it will reflect you as an

individual.

St. James’s Place guarantees the suitability of

the advice given by members of the St. James’s

Place Partnership when recommending any of

the wealth management products and services

available from companies in the Group, more

details of which are set out on the Group’s website

at www.sjp.co.uk/products.

The value of an investment with St. James’s Place

may fall as well as rise. You may get back less

than the amount invested.

I am locally based and offer planning in the

following areas:

• Preparing for retirement and in-retirement

advice

• Investment planning

• Pension planning

• Protection for you and your family

• Inheritance tax and Inter-generational planning

• Investment planning for children/grandchildren

• Protection for self-employed, company

directors and key people

• Aspects of tax efficient business exit strategies.

So, if you’d like to plan or just want a coffee

chat, let’s start the ball rolling

directly with confidence and no obligation
