Putting up with joint pain is not

the healthy option

As we get older we all complain

about ‘creaking’ joints and the

inability to do things we could

do ‘when we were young.’

But there are things we can do to

keep our joints healthy and in good

order.

However, if a joint, such as a knee or

hip, is no longer operating properly

replacement is sometimes the best

option.

Mr Ashvin Pimpalnerkar, a Consultant

Orthopaedic Surgeon at Spire Little

Aston Hospital, says that many people

think you have to be ‘of a certain age’

before they contemplate a joint

replacement.

“The age to have surgery is when the

pain caused by the knee or hip is

affecting your quality of life. For some

people that might mean when they are

in their eighties but for others, it can

be much, much younger.

“In fact, delaying surgery can

sometimes cause added problems as

people change their walking style to

accommodate the pain from the joint

and then put extra pressure on other

joints.”

Here, Mr Pimpalnerkar answers

some often-asked questions about

joint health and joint surgery

Joint pain can be increasingly

common when we age but at what

stage should we be thinking about

visiting a GP?

Pain is the way your body tells you

that something is wrong. The problem

is too many people ignore the

warnings and ‘battle through’ - either

with the help of painkillers or by sheer

grit! Either way, they are not doing

themselves any favours.

It may be that the pain can be

managed or that a course of

physiotherapy is needed but the

important thing is to get it checked

out, first by your GP and then with a

scan or X-ray. Putting up with pain just

isn’t a sensible option.

What might happen if you do

simply ‘grin and bear it’?

As we get older our joints do get stiffer

– that’s just a fact of life. However,

putting off getting treatment will only

make matters worse and could have a

detrimental effect on other joints.

For example, if you’re limping

because of a pain in your knee, this

usually means you are putting

pressure on other joints including your

hip or spine as you change the way

you walk.

Limping changes the way you walk

and so forces other joints to operate in

a way they have not been used to.

This might be acceptable for a shortterm

injury but if you do it over a long

time it will affect other parts of your

body.

How can failure to get treatment

effect general health?

If you don’t get treatment then it could

progress until walking is just too

painful and so you find yourself trying

to avoid exercise of any kind.

Your heart and lungs need exercise in

order to function properly and you

may also find that you put on weight

because of your lack of activity.

A new hip or knee really can give you

a new lease of life. Suddenly walking

becomes not only an option but

actually an enjoyable option.

These days joint replacement surgery

has a fantastic success rate and

people really can get back to doing

the things they loved. I know people in

their 50s and 60s who gave up golf or

tennis because of joint pain but are

now back in action following

successful surgery.

Depending on age and general

fitness, running and even low-contact

sports are also possible – I tell

patients not to let aching joints dictate

your lifestyle when so many treatment

options are available.

Here at Spire Little Aston Hospital we

are experienced in the management

and treatment of bone, muscle and

joint conditions, as well as

physiotherapy to relieve pain and

improve mobility.

With fast access to consultations and

diagnostic tests and scans, we can

provide expert advice to help you

make the right decision about your

care.

You can find out more by calling

our Private Treatment Advisors on

0121 756 8800 or search ‘Spire

Little Aston’ for more information.

Opening eyes to new technology

and a change in culture

Samantha Hague Optometry, formerly Sheward

Opticians, of Upper Green, Tettenhall have invested in

the very latest, leading­edge technology since taking

on the practice in June 2019, to ensure they provide

the very best eye examinations they can. 3D OCT

Retinal Scans and Optomap Widefield Retinal Imaging

are now available to all patients as part of Hague

Optometry’s Extended Eye Examination and are all

conducted in person, during your consultation, by

principal optometrist and practice owner Samantha

Hague.

A recent ITV news item by Sarah Kilburn­Wilson reported on

the Dudley Group of Hospitals use of scanning technology in

their ophthalmology clinics, highlighting the importance of

embracing innovation in eyecare.

all the equipment I use, giving a comfortable and efficient

experience and I take time to talk my patients through

everything I do, involving them as much (or as little!) as they

want. I have even replaced the ‘puff­of­air­glaucoma­test’

too so there really is no need to be nervous of coming to

see us”.

Hague Optometry are now back to being fully open but with

an appointment only, locked­door policy, and continue to

take covid­secure measures very seriously. Hague

Optometry are currently accepting new patients so next

time you need an eye examination why not given Samantha

Hague Optometry a try – looking at all the 5* Google

Reviews this new establishment is receiving, you won’t be

disappointed.

Speaking to Ms Kilburn­Wilson, leading ophthalmologist and

glaucoma specialist Mr Babar Elahi said;

“There is technology out there, all we have to do is accept

the change of culture ­ we need to change and embrace this

technology. So, when you look at it (the back of the eye) and

you have time to look at it through a camera on a big screen

rather than just seeing while the patient is in the clinic, you

can spend time and find out those subtle changes. Most of

our clinician’s experience has been “this is brilliant­ we have

picked up things that we may not have picked up before.”

Sam Hague agrees; “Retinal imaging is quick and painless

and gives us a really detailed, permanent record of your eye

health for both close analysis during and after your

consultation but also for future reference and early

detection of eye disease. I have invested in the very latest

equipment to help me provide the most thorough eye

examinations I can which ultimately brings peace of mind.

My consulting room is beautifully designed to accommodate

F: Eurasia Tandoori Restaurant

It was our first meal out since lockdown and My

partner Mike was desperate for a good curry, so

after hearing great reviews we opted for the

award-winning Eurasia Tandoori Restaurant in

Bridgnorth, and by the end of the evening it was

truly clear why it was award winning!

Greeted by very friendly staff, we were shown to our

table, handed menus, and offered drinks and

poppadom’s. Eurasia is fully licensed with some great

beers on offer including wine by the glass or bottle.

The poppadom’s arrived with 5 different chutneys and

sauces, including the gorgeous onion salad. We were

off to a great start. As we sat munching away, we

started to look through the starters there was the usual

on offer but also some dishes neither of us had heard of

before, there was also plenty of choice with a meat

section and a vegetarian and seafood section.

With tikka pakora being my all-time favourite starter, I

had to order this, however we also toyed between the

kasli pitta and the Mirpuri malai, both dishes were new

to us and sounded amazing and with it being our first

dinner date out in a long time, we opted for all three.

All dishes looked fab however the Mirpuri malai looked

spectacular, so Ill start with this. A layer of potato fritter

topped with sliced chicken tikka, cooked in a pickle

and pineapple chunky sauce, topped with another

potato fritter, more chicken and chutney and another

potato fritter. To say this was a taste explosion is an

understatement. The juicy chutney combined with

pineapple, chicken tikka and potato fritter was a pure

delight, so many flavours and textures it was incredible, I

would go back to Eurasia for this dish alone, highly

recommend.


Next the chicken pakora, I’m

confident enough to say I have

tasted enough pakoras to be a

critic and I can very often be let

down with it being more like a

chicken nugget that a proper

pakora, thankfully this was not the

case here! The chicken had been

spiced perfectly, deep fried and

then coated with chickpeas flour

and deep fried again – exactly how

it should be cooked, a great starter

with the wedge of lemon, fresh

salad and mint yoghurt.

Next to try was the kasli pitta, which

I can only really describe as a luxury

samosa. Chicken and potato with

onions and spices all wrapped up in

crispy pastry, apparently it is a very

traditional Sylheti dish with of course

Eurasia adding its own twist. Really

tasty and a good combination of

textures.

Out of our three starters, we

enjoyed them all, but I really can’t

recommend the Mirpuri malai

enough, a must try.

On to mains. Again, so many new

choices to chose from, I’ve never

seen such a new and adventurous

curry house menu, it was fantastic.

Our waiter had highly

recommended the lamb sherpuri,

so that was first added to the list

and then I noticed the Tawa dishes,

so the chicken tikka variation was

added too, and we also opted for

the shahi chicken. Knowing we

could take leftovers home to enjoy

the next day we thought it was

great to try the three mains, with a

pilau rice, special naan and a saag

aloo added as sides.

Everything just looked a pure

delight, a feast of flavours, where

do we start? The lamb sherpuri is an

award-winning dish in itself, so felt it

best to start here. I will often avoid

lamb in a curry as it can be too

tough, but this was succulent, juicy

and cooked to perfection in the

most fabulous sauce. A good

amount of spice with fenugreek

and ginger, but what made this

dish so special was the crunchy

garlic pickle, wow, this was a totally

new flavour to me and it was

spectacular, just so many zesty

flavours in one, with the juicy lamb

and sauce it was clear why this was

an award winning dish I very highly

recommend this, just so different

and delicious, with a good medium

spice to it.

So next to try was the Tawa dish,

which I’m sure not many of you

have heard of either. A semi-dry

unique dish, a choice of chicken

tikka, king prawn or vegetable

cooked with capsicum, onions,

fresh herbs and garnished with

cheddar cheese served on a

sizzling cast iron Tawa plate. The

cheese is placed first so it melts and

almost slightly burns, then the

chosen topping on top, it is then

placed on a plate and the cheese

peeled off. It was amazing! The dish

itself mainly consisted of chicken

tikka and onions and eaten with

the cheese was superb, I really

enjoyed this dish, and so did Mike

although claimed the lamb was his

clear favourite. Again, another

unique and deliciously tasty dish

that I would recommend.

Mild/medium spiced.

Onto the third dish, the shahi

chicken, a very meaty and mild

dish, perfect for those not keen on

spice, but also not creamy and

coconutty like a korma, which can

often be too much. Whole pieces

of chicken breast filled with spicy

minced meat, peas and potato in

a delicious mild sauce. Compared

to the other two dishes this was a bit

too mild for me, but if you like a

mild and meaty curry this is the

perfect dish for you.

The meat was succulent in all

dishes, starters and mains and very

obvious everything is cooked fresh

with high quality ingredients. We

couldn’t fault anything and there

really is something for everyone’s

taste.

The side dishes also deserve a big

mention, so the special naan was

stuffed with tikka, saag, cheese,

keema, green chilli and garlic and

looked really good, Mike, a spice

lover, loved it, I did feel it was too

spicy for me, so this is definitely the

naan bread if you like a kick or I

would recommend you stick to

another of the great naans on

offer. The rice was perfect, and

when I say I saved the best to last, I

really did, well that’s as long as you

like saag aloo – which I really do!

Arriving in a traditional metal dish I

was a little surprised to see the saag

aloo with no sauce, just potatoes,

spinach and spices. Just when I

thought I was going to be

disappointed, I literally tasted the

best saag aloo Ive ever tasted, in

fact my mouth is watering now just

thinking about it! The potatoes were

so soft and buttery and the juicy

spinach bursting with flavour, this

was a very luscious dish that I

wasn’t prepared to share with Mike.

We were wowed by every dish,

there really was nothing we didn’t

enjoy or lacked a wow factor, each

dish with its own unique flair. We

finished off with some mint choc

chip ice-cream and left wanting to

tell the world how good Eurasia

really is. We will definitely be back!

Chatsworth is high on the ‘to do’ list, when visiting country houses in England. Renowned as being one of

the finest country estates to visit in the UK, Chatsworth House, with its 105 acre garden attracts many

visitors, from global origins, throughout the year.

Chatsworth House is the seat of the Duke of Devonshire and this stately residence has been home to the

Cavendish family since 1549. Located on the east bank of the River Derwent, in Derbyshire’s Peak

District, close to Chesterfield and Bakewell, the magnificent property is surrounded by stunning views

and countryside.

With the House (25-plus rooms to explore, including regal State Rooms) and Gardens, Events, the Estate’

Farm Shop, plus Farmyard, Playground and much more, there is certainly something for all the family to

enjoy at Chatsworth. Very impressive Works of Art and Sculptures, for example, hold much interest for

numerous visitors.

Award-winning Peak Ales Brewery produces real ales and gained much interest from the outset. Located

on the Chatsworth Estate, the craft ales’ producer also offers Chatsworth Gin (40% vol). Following several

years of experimenting and development, this small batch gin utilises selected botanicals, from the

Chatsworth Estate, to produce this high-quality, classic, London Dry Gin. Botanicals used include

Chatsworth lemons, lemongrass, lemon verbena, plus banana leaf. The banana has an important and

very interesting role at Chatsworth and the Cavendish banana is well documented in Chatsworth’s

history. During the 1830’s, Joseph Paxton was head gardener to the 6th Duke of Devonshire and

introduced bananas to Chatsworth.

Chatsworth Gin exudes the crispness of excellent citrus flavours and, complemented with other infused

botanicals, along with banana leaf, makes for a production that is well-balanced, smooth and has great

pleasure for the mouthfeel and palate sensation.

Chatsworth Gin and Peak Ales are available at the Visitor Centre shop, as well

as online. Orders are processed, then dispatched quickly and efficiently.

Brewery Tours are available – perhaps surprise someone special?

MONEY MONEY MONEY...

IT’S A COLLECTOR’S WORLD

Although you may get lucky and find some money

down the side of the sofa, you could also try searching

for any coins you have in the attic.

A Royal Mint 2009 UK Proof Coin Set, including a

Kew Gardens 50p sold for £350

The rarest coins to come up at auction are the 1933 penny

and the 1937 Edward VIII threepenny bit. Most often we sell

sovereigns and coin sets and to date, the market continues to

be buoyant. The coins that sell particularly well at auction are

uncirculated, which means they have never been used to

purchase anything. However, exceptions to this rule include

the undated 20p (that was the first coin issued for circulation

in over 300 years without a date on either side) which can go

for up to £100 and 1952 half crowns that can sell for

thousands of pounds. The great thing about collecting coins

is that they hold their value and are also extremely easy to

store.

Commemorative coins are popular at auction and are often

the coins that people have been given over the years as gifts

from grandparents or older relatives. For the Coronation of

King Edward VII in 1902, the Royal Mint issued two different

proof coin sets, both of which are highly sought after by

collectors and can fetch tens of thousands of pounds in mint

condition.

Coins were introduced in Ancient Greece as a method of

payment around the 6th or 5th century and were made of

electrum which was an alloy of silver and gold. They weighed

approximately 8 grams, were thick and bean-shaped and

were stamped on one side to show their authenticity whilst

the other side was roughly impressed. Their value fluctuated

according to their gold and silver content.

In China, gold coins were first standardized during the Qin

dynasty (221-207 BCE) followed by silver coins and

"deerskin notes" which were introduced as currency.

There is so much history attached to coins. King John for

example was the first to give coins to the elderly in 1213,

referred to as Maundy Money and this was a practice

continued by his successors. The Maundy ceremony as we

know it today first took place in in the reign of Charles II in

1662 and takes place every Maundy Thursday.

A modern Royal Mint Diana Princess of Wales Gold Proof

Memorial £5 Coin, 1999, in box with certificate sold for £2,750

Since then, commemorative sets for significant occasions

and anniversaries such as Royal Weddings are highly sought

after. To celebrate the 250th anniversary of Kew Gardens a

limited edition 50p coin was issued. The Kew Gardens 50p is

rare to find and could make £200 at auction. The £5 Princess

Diana coin which was issued following her death can make

£5,000-7,000 in good condition.

A Royal Mint Gold Portrait Collection four full sovereign set,

comprising 1963, 1986, 1994 and 1998 gold sovereigns, in

fitted box with certificates sold for £1,500

If you have any coins you would like to find the

value of, please make an appointment to come

along to our free Valuation Days every

Thursday at Baylies Hall by calling

01384 931001

Cataract surgery

within just a few

weeks”

UNLOCK YOUR POTENTIAL WITH PRIVATE CATARACT SURGERY

If, like many patients, you view the possibility of never having to wear glasses again as truly liberating, then you

should consider private cataract surgery. Privately, I can provide state-of-the-art premium multifocal, extended

depth of vision (EDoF), toric astigmatism–correcting and enhanced monofocal IOLs designed to give you much more

independence from glasses than the basic single vision lenses available through the NHS.

Your eyesight is precious, and you deserve the best range of vision that modern science can offer.

So, invest in your future with premium IOLs, and enjoy being able to read and use your computer or tablet with much

less dependence on annoying spectacles – something that perhaps you have not been able to do since your early 40s

EYE FLOATERS - ARE YOU TROUBLED BY EYE FLOATERS?

Eye floaters are typically small pieces of debris that float in the eye’s vitreous humour. Often, they can also be caused

by sudden separation of the vitreous jelly from the back surface of the eye (posterior vitreous detachment), which is a

natural part of ageing). Most people find floaters minimally troublesome, but for some they can be a significant

source of irritation and may interfere with your quality of vision and life. Modern surgical techniques have made the

permanent treatment of eye floaters safer than ever. Mr Balaggan specialises in the permanent removal of

symptomatic troublesome eye floaters using the very latest micro-incision techniques, with the procedure being

performed in around 25 minutes as a day case patient. If you are over 45 years old and have suffered with eye floaters

for over 6 months then get in touch to arrange an assessment by Mr Balaggan. Do read the reviews from his former

floater patients on Trustpilot.

What ever happened to....

In today's fast paced world

where everything seems to

be "Here today, Gone

Tomorrow" in The Scene and

SY1 Office we reminisced

and remembered items that

were commonplace in a

previous time but "You tell

the kids of Today, they don't

believe you". are just not

there anymore.

Betamax), video tape into your

video recorder and if you were

really posh your video recorder

was remote control, which

actually consisted of a long

piece of plastic, usually about a

metre long coming out of the

recorder!!

But unfortunately some of our

favourite shops will not be

coming back, Woolworths, (Ohh

how I missed there pic n mix),

Littlewoods, C&A, Tammy Girl,

Tandy Electronics, Virgin

Megastores, Blockbusters video,

Freeman Hardy & Willis &

Rumbelows to name but a few.

The Pop Man

This was a time when Corona

was a good thing and not to be

feared! About once a week a

vehicle similar to this would

come around and you would

get your fizzy pop off them and

at the same time if you kept

your used bottles you would get

about 10p back for each bottle,

so it was also environmentally

friendly, way before the term

became trendy.

Usually this would be on a friday

night and something else we

used to do on a Friday night

was going to the local video

shop to pick that nights film,

way before everything was

downloaded, just think we

would walk, usually, just round

the corner to pick the latest

movie which would then bring

up the debate of getting

everyone to agree on what to

watch. You would get home

and put the VHS (Maybe

This was at a time when lot's of

people actually hired there TV's

from Shops such as Granada or

Radio Rentals, paying a couple

of quid each week, I think the

idea was that as TV's upgraded

you would then get the latest

version, well I think that's what

they told my mom!!

And then looking at the

chocolates and sweets we used

to nibble on when watching

American Werewolf in London

or Love Story, (Depending on

what mood you were in), most

of those seem to have gone out

of fashion. Remember Pacers

and Spangles to name but two,

however, with the re-birth of the

retro sweet shops a lot seem to

be making a comeback.

So while your walking down the

street wearing your shoulder

pads with the latest Mullet hair

style, listening to the latest songs

on your walkman while playing

with your yo yo and holding

your Cabbage patch doll or

haven't got a clue on what I just

said, then maybe it was better

back in the day!!

At long last the Olympics are

here and what a wonderful

month of sport we have to look

forward to. Like every sport The

Olympics have been delayed

for 12 months because of Covid

and in fact only the Japanese

public will be allowed to watch

it because of travel restrictions.

But finally the World's greatest

sports event will be taking place

from 23rd July through till 8th

August.

So which UK Athletes will be

looking to win the medals this

summer. Well, we at Scene

have had a look at who to

follow in Tokyo and hopefully

they will bring home the Gold

for Great Britain.

whereas Adam Peaty swims

Giles Sails, in fact, like Sir Ben

Ainslie he dominates his event.

As the current Olympic

Champion in Finn Class at the

Rio Olympics, he won his event

with a day to spare which in

rowing is unprecedented and

I'm sure he will do the same

again in Enoshima Harbour.

Katarina Johnson-Thompson

(The girl in the Muller Light

adverts!) is the current

Heptathlon World Champion

and in doing so broke Jessica

Ennis Hill's British record points

total from that heady balmy

evening in the London Olympics

and I'm sure she will push that

record up further in Tokyo.

Tokyo Olympics

she won the 100m and second

in the 200m and if current form is

anything to go by she should be

very close to repeating those

great feats!!

Jason and Laura Kenny are the

Golden Couple of British

Cycling, winning TEN Olympic

Gold Medals between them!!

Just think about that TEN

OLYMPIC GOLD MEDALS. In fact

if they only won one Gold

Medal each that would be a

poor Olympics, Crazy to think

like that, but we are in blessed

times for our sports men and

women.

Adam Peaty is the current 50

and 100 metre Breastroke world

record holder, in fact he holds

the record for the fastest 20

times at 100m breaststroke, the

man is simply unbeatable at this

event, so he will be nailed on to

win the Gold medal,

unfortunately though there is no

50m Breaststroke event at the

Olympics as he would have

been nailed on to win that to!

Another man who will be great

on water will be Giles Scott, but

Now one girl who has improved

dramatically is Dina Asher-Smith.

Dina is the current National

Record holder at both 100m

and 200m where in the last

World Championships in 2019

Whatever happens during July

& August in Tokyo we will be at

the edge of our seats, in tears of

happiness and tears of

disappointment, but that's what

the Olympics is all about and

why we love it so much.

A guide to

taking care

of you!

Selfcare is not selfish We live in a society

that is quick to judge our actions as

selfish, to make us feel bad and guilty

about putting ourselves first but the

reality is that no one else can take care

of us better than we can take care of

ourselves.

No-one else, no matter how close we are to

them, knows how we truly feel inside, how

our body feels, how we are coping with the

stress of the world and what we need to

make us feel better. Only we truly know

what we need and sometimes even

determining that for ourselves can be

difficult, we need to take a moment of

quiet, to stop and listen to ourselves.


STRESS IS WHEN YOUR

MOUTH SAYS YES

BUT YOUR HEART

SAYS NO!


Self-love and care is not just an occasional

bubble bath or a new pair of shoes, real Self

Care is making a commitment to yourself

and putting your needs first. This is not

selfish! In Fact, it is the most unselfish thing

you can do! The better you feel the more

able you are to GIVE to everything and

everyone else!! If you don’t listen to yourself

and just keep going until you are exhausted

you may experience all kinds of negative

emotions, anger, resentment even

depression, and more commonly illness, as

your body will just create a situation to

make you stop and listen! When you board

an aircraft and listen to the Safety

Demonstration, they ALWAYS tell you that

you must put on your oxygen mask BEFORE

helping anyone else, why do you think this

is?? Because if you dont you will pass out

and not be able to help ANYONE.

We get so caught up the in the ‘rat race’,

Our jobs, our families, our commitments,

and responsibilities seem to consume us

and few of us really listen to ourselves. Even

when we do there is often an excuse at

hand. We are too busy at work, our kids

need our attention, we have too many

things on our ‘To Do’ list or my personal

favourite… we just can’t say NO!!

The reality is that we can all make some

time for some self-care, it is not a whimsical

ideal - it is an absolute NECESSITY!!! I think

this saying really sums up the trap we often

find ourselves in….


This is the same lesson; you cannot give

from any empty tank! So, if you need it I am

now giving you full permission to look after

yourself, to take some timeout and to put

yourself first! Be kind, be compassionate, be

empathic but make you do all of this for

YOURSELF as well as other people!

SELF care

Is Not Selfish!

I treat so many people that are

overwhelmed, over tired and energetically,

emotionally, and physically exhausted yet

they still find it so hard to make time for

themselves or take proper care of themself

because they feel some kind of duty to

everyone else or guilt for putting themselves

first.

This is trauma response. If you keep going in

this state, you will become sick. Our body

develops illness when it is trying to

communicate something to us, but we are

refusing to listen. Rest is such an important

part of taking care of our body and our

mind. Rest is how we process and release

emotions and triggers…. So, they do not

turn to illness or distress. Many people are

currently living in a permanent state of

‘fight or flight’.

This happens when we are experiencing

prolonged periods of stress or anxiety. It is

our survival instinct firing into action so that

we are ready to deal with the imminent

danger. The problem with modern life is

that we are so often in this adrenaline state

that our body no longer knows the

difference between ‘real’ threat and the

threats we imagine and run in our minds

when we are anxious. It is caused by our

Autonomic Nervous System (or ANS). That is

our survival instinct system and every 4

seconds it scans our internal and external

environment to check if we are safe. If it

perceives any threats (real or imagined) it

fires our ‘fight or flight’ response. This in turn

creates physical changes in the body, it

causes our hearing to alter and perceive

different frequencies, our vision changes

causing our peripheral vision to narrow.

Our body is flooded with adrenaline and

cortisol so we can react quicker to the

danger. Living in this state for too long can

cause adrenal fatigue and problems with

the organs, it can have many physical

effects on our system and cause us to

overreact, get over-emotional and feel we

are unable to cope.

So how do we help ourselves? Well, the only

thing within our body that has the power to

reset the Autonomic Nervous System is the

breath. Deep, slow breaths can reset the

‘fight or flight’ response, especially the

exhale breath. Taking long, slow deep

breaths can really help us to reconnect

back in with our bodily systems and

communicate to our body that all is well.

Anxiety Breathing is when we breathe in

deeply for the count of 4, hold our breath

for the count of 7, and very slowly exhale

for the count of 8. Done for several minutes

with focused attention, this can quickly slow

the ANS and return our body (and our

mind) to the feeling of safety. It may feel

strange at first and it may take a few

practice breaths but if you persevere this

deep breathing technique can really help

with all forms of anxiety.

Panic / anxiety attack

1.Breath in for 4 seconds

2.Hold your breath for 7 seconds

3.Exhale breath for 8 seconds

4.Repeat once or twice more

This causes as autonomic nervous

system shift from sympathetic

(flight or fight reaction) state to a

parasympathetic response

Use this for

panic/anxiety attacks, exams,

presentations.


voice to be your main focus and just listen,

with no pressure, no expectation, just allow

their voice to carry you away.

This is the main point of meditation. To stop

that busy monkey mind and all the

overthinking. So, stop thinking about it and

just listen and lie there. Dont worry if you fall

asleep or if it takes you a while to relax… just

give yourself permission to just lie there and

see what happens.

Like everything these things take practice!

You wouldn’t expect to go to the gym once

and then be able to run a marathon. Your

body needs to get used to doing new things

before they feel comfortable.

Meditation is also very helpful and again has

physical benefits to the body, mind and soul.

It is not just sitting cross legged chanting OM.

When the brain is monitored both before

and after meditation real physical changes

can be measured. The brain following

meditation naturally produces more calming

hormones and happy chemicals and also it

helps that ANS reset into a feeling of safety.

Combining meditation and breath can really

make a difference to anxiety disorders and

all mental health issues. I have personally

seen people greatly improve their wellbeing

simply by adding a little meditation and

breathwork into their daily routine.

So, stick with it… even if it isn’t great the first

time you will get much better at it and

probably very quickly and you will really start

to see and feel the benefits.

IF YOU LISTEN WHEN

YOUR BODY WHISPERS

YOU WON’T HAVE “TO HEAR IT SCREAM!


I often hear people say that they can’t

meditate, or they are no good at it… to that

I reply, ‘stop trying’. To successfully meditate

all you have to do is lie down and rest and

allow your mind to stop thinking, i know

sounds easy right… but most of us find that

soooo hard!

My top tip is to listen to a guided meditation

(there are many great ones on YouTube or

other apps), find one with a voice you like (I

often hear how the voices are annoying).

Then simply lie down in a quiet place, put

your headphones in and listen to the voice.

Dont ‘try’ to do anything. Just allow their

The Man Cave!

As the sun shines and the Olympics kicks in,

your man will want to escape to his "Private

area" and take in the full extent of all the

sporting events taking place this summer

without being interrupted by trivial problems

such as, "The house is burning down!!".

The "Man Cave" (Or shed as it is better known), is

that area where "your man" will escape to, to

contemplate important decisions in life such as,

"Have I got enough rawplugs in my tool box, and

come to think of it do I need a bigger Toolbox?"

Recently the "Man Cave" has moved on from Friday

Night Dinners, Martin Goodmans shed where he

would escape to look at his rocks or his 20 year old

tinned meat, (If you haven't seen it then watch it,

brilliant comedy!) to state of the art places where

you could quite easily live for the rest of your life.

Instead of a wooden shed, you now have places

where you can watch your footie, have your

draught beer and a fridge for your tinnies and now

they are so good, the wife wants to spend time in

there discussing such important issues such as who

should partner Harry Kane up front for England or

explaining the offside rule, (Well maybe not the

offside rule, somethings should never be discussed)

So what are the essentials for the 21st Century's man

cave? Well depending on the size of the

aforementioned property, you need Beer,

preferably Draught Beer, but if not a well stocked

Fridge, State of the art TV to watch the Footie, Pool

Table, Dart board, comfortable chairs as you will

spending a lot of time in there, avoiding all those DIY

job's that wifey had planned for you and most

importantly, depending on the time of the year

space for the World Cup/ Euros/ Olympics/ British &

Irish Lions wall chart so you can plan your viewing.

Once you have your Man Cave planned and

stocked with your ESSENTIAL items you can sit back

and take stock of your life knowing that it just

doesn't get any better than this, well that's until you

get a knock on the "Shed" door and wifey's telling

you that those shelves aren't going to put

themselves up or the toilet is STILL leaking!! Ahh well

we can but dream!!

Wrekin Goes

From Strength

to Strength

New facilities will be officially

unveiled at a Shropshire school

next term as pupil numbers

continue to grow.

Wrekin College will take the wraps

off a state-of-the-art dance studio

and second artificial sports playing

surface with the new academic

year set to herald in the next

exciting chapter in the school’s

history.

More than 500 pupils will be on the roll

at the school in September, which

means it will be bigger than it has ever

been whilst clocking up a number of

achievements in the last two years

despite the disruption of the pandemic.

A new £2.7million Music School opened

in January 2020 and earlier this year

Wrekin welcomed global music stars

Sheku and Isata Kenneh-Mason to

perform for pupils in a Covid-secure

setting.

The school also held a tennis

masterclass with ATP stars Danny

Sapsford and James Auckland inviting

more than 80 pupils to take part in a

number of Covid-secure sessions.

Pupils also recorded record-breaking

exam results in 2020, completed a

series of employability boot camps led

by national industry leaders, and, in a

particular highlight, eight musicians at

the school secured their Grade Eight

qualification despite lessons having to

go online.

Headmaster Mr Tim Firth said today

that pupils had continued to work

towards significant achievements

throughout three national lockdowns

and he was extremely proud of the way

the people at the school had coped

throughout a period of great

uncertainty.

“We are very much looking forward to

next year and embracing every

opportunity for pupils, parents, staff and

our whole community to get the most

out of Wrekin and what this school has

to offer,” said Mr Firth.

“There is a sense of pride in what we

have done and how we have come

together but we know that we also need

to look ahead and plan what more we

can do for when restrictions will be

lifted further. I want that to be a cause

for great excitement and enhance the

positive attitude we have in our

community.

“Throughout the last 18 months we

have approached each new challenge

by doing what we can wherever we can

to just get on with things. It has served

us well in that we have not dwelled on

what we cannot do but instead focused

on what we can.

“At times that has meant staff and

pupils have had to innovate and put in

the extra hours and effort to make it

happen but it has paid off. I believe our

pupils feel a sense of empowerment

from a whole new set of skills they have

learned and we have been encouraged

by how they are approaching this next

stage of their lives - that includes our

current pupils and our leavers now

ready to emerge from the classroom

into the real world. We very much look

forward to welcoming our new

Wrekinians in September and working

with them on

all fronts to develop

them.''

Mr Firth said the new

dance studio would have

a professional sprung

floor together with

full-height mirrors and

would allow the school to

offer a new range of

classes to pupils and

performances for

audiences.

He added that sporting

fixtures had returned in

the summer term leading to a number

of successes in cricket, tennis and

athletics and that staff have organised a

full schedule for the Autumn term.

“It is so vital that we understand how

much young people have missed taking

part in performance events and getting

out there to compete in the sporting,

musical, dramatic and many other

arenas. These are essential building

blocks in encouraging confident and

engaged learners and promoting

wellbeing. As a school, it was in times

of Covid and is always our duty to pull

out all the stops to ensure these events

happen. I want to take this opportunity

to pay tribute to our staff and families

who have shown such determination,

patience and co-operation to get extracurricular

events back on for our

pupils.”

The Old Hall School which shares a

campus with Wrekin College will also

be using the new facilities while they

will also be open to community groups

as restrictions are lifted fully.

Girls of Tettenhall College Up Their Game Internationally

The sportswomen of Tettenhall

College have taken lockdown’s

sporting challenges head on

and shown that true

determination can transpire into

great things by becoming

international champions.

For most, sporting activities have

been on pause over the past 12

months, from barren football

pitches to vacant gymnasiums,

resulting in many of us being

confined to our homes, with the

only green space being a garden.

International Gymnast, Gabriella

W (Year 10), National Cricketer,

Davina P (Year 9) and National

Cheerleading Champion, Scarlett

W (Year 9), have maintained strict

training regimes and faced

challenging practise

environments, emerging as even

more esteemed and celebrated

Sportswomen.

With gymnasiums having to close

their doors through the pandemic,

fervent gymnasts have faced true

motivational challenges, with no

apparatus or gym space to

practise. Gabriella, from

Wednesfield, made it her mission

to use this unique period to hone

her core skills and form through

daily zoom sessions, resulting in her

fitness and sporting condition

being at a record high. Gabriella is

now en-route to being selected for

the Commonwealth Games, 2022.

Time away from the pitch did not

stop Davina, who maintained her

striking and fielding skills, alongside

her teammates, through weekly

online competitions in addition to

completing strength and

conditioning programmes. Davina

who is also from Wednesfield, has

been selected by Central Sparks

Academy, an elite pathway

programme that is part of the

England pathway and Davina has

hopes to be selected by the

England cricket team. Aside her

sporting endeavours, Davina has

been somewhat of a media figure

through the African-Caribbean

Engagement programme (A.C.E),

which is a strategic programme

designed to support diverse talent

from the grassroots to the elite in

cricket and encourage a better

talent identification within Black

communities.

Having been selected for Team

England prior to Lockdown 1.0,

Scarlett, who lives in Bridgnorth,

has continued to attend seven

virtual classes a week alongside

numerous strength and

conditioning sessions.

Competitions have recently

concentrated on individual skills

and Scarlett won a national

‘turning’ competition via her

submission entry online. She

continues to upload weekly videos

of her choreography to team

England and is looking forward to

travelling internationally with the

squad once restrictions lift.

“Witnessing the girls’ success

(amidst a pandemic) has been

incredibly heartening to see. Their

passion and drive for each of their

sporting passions is astounding and

I could not be prouder,”

concluded Mrs Causebrook, Head

of Girls’ Sport.

Education

Senior School Investment and

New Fee Structure

Birchfield School near Albrighton is looking forward to an

exciting 2021 academic year as the development of their

already impressive facilities is well underway, following a

massive investment programme that will extend their

senior school provision up to age 16.

The school recently joined the St Philips Education

Group, a move that led to the expansion of the senior

school up to the age of 16 at Birchfield as part of a

£500,000 investment. Birchfield is currently recruiting for

Year 7 2021 up to 2025 and will be welcoming its first

Year 9 cohort in September 2023.

Headmistress, Sarah Morris, said the school was also

seeing a considerable increase in interest from parents

from across the region, helped by a restructuring of fees

to ensure a Birchfield education is affordable for more

families. With fees for Year 7 starting at £8,000 per year,

Birchfield is a natural choice for aspirational families.

“It’s a very exciting year for Birchfield School and we look

forward to welcoming even more pupils in September

who will be able to enjoy a first-class private education

with our amazing new facilities,” Mrs Morris added.

“The senior school planning and developments are well

underway and senior pupils can look forward to a smart

new uniform and a state-of-the-art learning and sporting

environment across the school, with special focus on

science and sport.

“Birchfield’s location just off the A41 near Albrighton

ensures that it is a convenient and easily accessible

location for families from Wolverhampton, Telford and

Newport. We will be supporting pupils from all these

areas with the introduction of a minibus service in

September to ease the travel process for families.’

We are seeing greater numbers of parents from across

the region who are viewing the school as the ideal option

for their children’s education, encouraged by our policy

of small class sizes to allow personalised learning for all

pupils. This is backed up by Birchfield’s long tradition of

academic, sporting and artistic success with pupils who

are positive, confident, well-mannered and intellectually

curious’

“Enquiries from parents extend across all years

throughout the school although it is worth mentioning

that we only have a few places available in specific year

groups. We have personal tours available at all times and

an Open Morning planned for Saturday 16th October. Do

come and see why Birchfield is such a special place to

educate your children.’

Great British Grand Prix's

With the British Grand Prix just round the corner on 18th July,

Scene Magazine looks back at some great British Grand

Prix's over the years when we were literally at the edge or

our seats!

Starting with The 1987 Grand Prix when Nigel Mansell was in

his pomp, the Williams Honda driver, alongside his team

mate Nelson Piquet were head and shoulders in the best car

and it was always going to be a 1-2 for Williams Honda, the

question was which way would it finish. By lap 35 with Piquet

leading and Mansell 2 seconds behind him, neither were

scheduled to stop, but Mansell took a gamble and came in

and got a new set of tyres. Now he came out not with a 2

second deficit but now 29 seconds behind the Frenchman.

With 28 Laps left could Mansell catch Piquet? Well on fresh

rubber Mansell began an epic charge, in fact he broke the lap

record Eight Times and by lap 62 of 65 he was right behind

Piquet and on lap 63 he overtook him to the absolute joy of

the 100,000 British spectators and hung on to win the race.

The place erupted and Mansell was engulfed by the crowd as

everyone thought he had just run out of petrol over the line, in

fact he had pushed the engine so much, it actually blew up!

What a race!

Williams, but this time was driving with a Renault engine as

Honda were a bit peeved with Mansell and Williams because

they kept blowing up their engines!!

This time Honda teamed up with Mclaren and The Maestro

himself Senna, so the battle commenced but Mansell had the

last laugh and won the race with Senna running out of Fuel

on the last lap. Nigel Mansell, ever the gentleman then

"picked" up Senna and famously gave him a lift to the pits,

much to the annoyance of the Stewards.

Coming into the 21st Century we look at the Legend that is

Lewis Hamilton and the first of his SEVEN British Grand Prix

wins. In 2008 there had been persistent rain in the morning

which had left a lot of standing water on the track and then

Lewis who was still with Mclaren at the time was starting on

the second row of the grid.

In 1991 the "Two horse race" this time was between Mansell

and the legend that was Ayrton Senna, Mansell again in his

Lewis had a brilliant start and got in front of the front three

drivers, but his teammate Kovalainen managed to overtake

him back and then the tussle began, Maclaren gambled that

it would rain and put on a set of "Wet" tyres on Lewis and

sure enough with the rain coming down drivers were either

sliding off or coming in to change their own tyres. This then

gave Lewis the time to "Storm" through and win his first

British Grand Prix, the first of many and who's to say he will

not win again in July!!

Good Luck Lewis!

Lilith enters Gemini July 18th, this Black Moon reveals hidden

secrets and feelings, coming to the fore...The Last Quarter

Moon August 30th sees a questioning of relationships, are

we disillusioned?? Illicit love affairs or pairings do mean we

live in the moment, yes!! Sometimes we have to break free,

sometimes we realize what matters, whichever way this

summer goes for you, relationships do seem key...

Cancer - (22nd June - 22nd July)

The New Moon July 10th is a great time for new starts

Cancer, especially work promotions or projects

achievement is recognised. Mercury enters Cancer July

11th good for incoming communications important letters,

emails. August sees the feisty side of Cancerians shouting, 'I

will not behave how other people want me to!' Feeling sick

of old beliefs or being 'respectable' expect heated

debates as you wield your sword...

Leo - (23rd July - 23rd August)

July 22nd sees the glorious Sun enter Leo, with

overindulging and showing off, your favourite time of year is

here where it's all about Leo! Mercury enters July 28th which

brings talk of travel plans! The New moon August 8th sees

Leo clearing the air, with the ability to see past people's

'masks' and call them out on untruths... There is that gut

instinct within that you know you can feel and trust... go

with it...

Virgo - (24th August - 22nd Sept.)

July 22nd sees Venus enter Virgo, smiling upon the area of

love and romance, then 'boom!' July 29th planet Mars joins

the party, enhancing sexual desires! Then in pops Mercury

August 11th, where we're communicating wonderfully, all

our hope's, needs and desires expressed! Then last but not

at all least the Sun shines in life as August 22nd sees the Sun

entering your sign. Wow Virgo! Enjoy enjoy enjoy!

Libra - (23rd Sept - 23rd October)

August 16th sees the arrival of Venus, where love becomes

the focus, with commitment for those already involved

deepening, and impulsive action for the singletons! August

30th sees Mercury brings its influence to communications,

Sagittarius - (23rd Nov - 21st Dec.)

The July 20th Waxing Gibbous Moon phase is good to

harness those ambitions. On another note, children or

family members may need a bit of help, but you may have

to dig to get it out of them, especially those that are very

proud and don't like to ask for help or admit weakness in

any form. Just be careful Sagittarius to not self-sabotage,

there is a balance with helping others, but self-care is

important to...

Capricorn - (22nd Dec - 20th January)

For Capricorn the July 22nd Waxing Gibbous energy is

perfect for those focusing upon promotion, climbing the

career ladder or promoting one's own business or getting

ones CV out there and seen...fresh starts seem to be on the

agenda. Is it yourself or loved ones that are looking at a

house move? times are for moving on, moving forward, in

terms of the home this seems to be timed just right...

Aquarius - (21st Jan - 18th Feb)

The Full moon on August 22nd brings a sense of

completeness, 'So now it is done'... In love there is a sense

of 'no going back' now or even with family members or

friends 'were in this together' There does seem to be a lot of

support around you Aquarius, maybe you are breaking

away from tradition, looking at a new way of thinking,

breaking norms, going away from expectations, treading

new paths... with a new version or just the 'real' version of

you on show...

Pisces - (19th Feb - 20th March)

On July 28th Jupiter leaves Pisces leaving in its wake a

clearer and more realistic view of the world.... Sometimes

Pisces we can get carried away with fantasy but now

Jupiter is set to leave it takes some of the fantasy and

escapism with it. If you have been in denial about your true

feelings, then now it's time to look again with honest eyes...

How do I really feel actually? and What actions should I

take now I can see the things in reality? are questions Pisces

may find themselves asking...

Aries - (21st March - 20th April)

July 1st and 2nd sees the Moon in its last quarter in Aries, a

time to challenge any situations where one suspect's

manipulation. Once this is managed an easy opportunity

yells 'take me' Follow your instincts to achieve creative

highs...especially if working with other fire signs. On another

note, medication works better when it is taken rather than

when it is sitting on the shelf, so help yourself, why struggle?

Taurus - (21st April -21st May)

Be careful Taurus of trying to take on too much, one cannot

pour from an empty cup... Use July 4th Waning Crescent

Moon energy to negotiate to get a fairer deal, why should

you do the lions share? By August 22nd the Waning

Gibbous sees your confidence reputation and commitment

being recognized. Sometimes saying 'No' is respected,

especially within the workplace...

committal at the crematorium. The local Crematoria which serve

our community are Bushbury, Telford and Gornal Wood. Following

a cremation, there are various options on a final resting place for

the cremated remains (ashes) which we can advise you on.

For a burial you can use an existing family grave in a local

cemetery or churchyard. Permission will need to be obtained from

the grave owner or you can purchase a new grave in your local

cemetery or at a Natural Burial Site. You can choose to have the

service in a church or chapel or even at the graveside.

Arranging a funeral for a family member or a loved one can

be a confusing and daunting task, especially as you will also

be grieving at this time. At McGinn & Sons we will help and

guide you through every step of the funeral arrangements

and inform you of only the relevant options. We will help

and also guide you if you wish, so you and your family are

easily able to decide on the most important decisions,

making the process as easy as it can possibly be.

Funeral arrangements can be made at our office in Springhill Lane

more than happy to visit you in your own home to go through your

options.

funeral directors in 2020 for Wolverhampton, this is now the 4th

year we have achieved this

what some the

family’s we

make the funeral arrangements on your behalf, Diane & Thomas

McGinn have over 40 years’ experience between them, helping

and guiding families with these important and unique choices,

Diane listens to your personal wishes and then with this

information she advises you as to your options.

Soon after a bereavement, you will be very busy with both practical

and official matters, there will be official paperwork and documents

to attend to such as Registering the death, Finances, informing

organisations etc, McGinn & Sons will help you with all of this and

give you all the necessary information in order to complete this

paperwork.

Your family, in the best

of hands. That’s a

promise

You will also need to consider what type of funeral you would like,

this is a very personal decision so we recommend you take your

time to decide, don’t be rushed. Each funeral is a unique

celebration of that loved one’s life. You may want a traditional

funeral or add unique additions like a Horse drawn Carriage,

Motorcycle Hearse, a Wicker or a personal picture coffin, a special

piece of music, unique prayers or poetry, a musical soloist or

release some Doves.

After that choice is made your next decision is whether the funeral

is to be a burial or cremation and where and when you would like it

to be held.

If cremation is chosen, decide whether to have a service in church

FORD FOCUS ST-LINE X EDITION

I only have to nip into the town centre and park in one of

the concrete multi storey car parks to find out how much

bigger the car I am road testing is in comparison to that

manufactured in the sixties, at the same time as the multi

storey was built. I might well be able to get onto the space

but with cars parked either side it would be a miracle to

be able to open the door.

The Ford Focus I am road testing this week is a good

example, as it is wider and larger than its predecessor.

The hatchback is a popular family car but in sporty ST-Line

X Edition guise, the five door has full body styling kit, red

brake calipers, rear privacy glass, 18” alloys and ST Line

wing badges.

In the cabin the flat bottomed steering wheel and partial

leather trim with red stitching continue the sporty theme.

Such a desirable looking car will inevitably attract thieves.

Keyless entry fobs of all makes of cars have been targeted

with ‘relay box’ equipment, used to extend the signal from

fobs in homes to unlock and start vehicles parked outside.

Driving to the rescue is Ford with a new motion sensor.

The Ford fob detects when the car has been stationary for

longer than 40 seconds and triggers a sleep mode, which

will not respond to attempts to hack its signal via a ‘relay

box’ or through the misuse of other specialist equipment.

The ST-Line is packed with other technology which I like

such as heated front seats, heated steering wheel and

quick clear heated windscreen. Rain sensing wipers and

dual zone electronic air temperature control were also

much appreciated.

I did not like the sports tuned suspension, especially

because of the numerous potholed roads in my area. To

limit the impact of potholed roads, the Focus has a system

which senses when a wheel is falling into a pothole and

adjusts the suspension to limit how far the wheel drops.

Because the tyre and wheel do not fall as far, they do not

strike the opposite side of the pothole as harshly on exit.

The rear suspension can respond even faster than the

front, with a signal from the front wheel providing a

pre-warning to the rear wheel before it reaches the

pothole. This all happens in a split second.

Safety features include a pre collision assist with

autonomous emergency braking and pedestrian/cyclist

detection. This surged into operation as I was reversing in

a cul de sac. The cyclist was on the pavement. I had good

sight of him and in my mind he was nowhere near the

rear of the car. However, I felt a jolt as the automatic

emergency braking engaged. Not called for I thought but

I guess it is better to be safe than sorry. There are also

front and rear parking sensors.

Safety features when motorway driving include lane

keeping aid with lane keeping alert, cruise control with

intelligent speed assist and electronic stability control.

The 1 litre EcoBoost hybrid engine proves that fuelefficiency

and performance can go hand-in-hand. The

small but powerful engine with a slightly gruff voice has

quick acceleration when needed and low CO2 emissions.

At traffic lights, the engine will cut out but restarts

immediately when needed.

The Ford Focus ST-Line has only improved with age and is

more spacious and practical, stylish and good value for

money.

KIA SOUL EV FIRST EDITION

By Sue Cooke

The world’s first electric forecourt can accommodate 36

electric vehicles charging simultaneously. Drivers can add

200 miles of range in 20 minutes. Electricity is partly

generated from solar power canopies above the chargers.

The driver relaxing lounge has free wifi, dedicated children’s

area, retail outlet, business meeting pods and even a

wellbeing zone with exercise bikes which when used,

generate more electricity! This is the future and this

forecourt exists now, in Essex with plans for 100 more in the

next five years.

And having this sort of infrastructure will perhaps be the

trigger for increasing sales of fully electric vehicles. In

January one in every six Kia vehicles sold was fully electric,

accounting in total for 16.7 per cent of all Kia sales in the UK.

Kia has some of the most practical EV models, like the Soul

EV, which I road tested this week.

The third generation Soul EV has a fresh and funky design,

full LED headlamps and is longer than its predecessor by

80mm. Alloy wheels have increased to 17inches and there

is a choice of three exterior bi-tone colour paintwork, with

contrasting roof and door mirrors as standard. It is the most

youthful looking Soul yet.

The crossover has a spacious interior with black leather

upholstery fitted as standard. I like the looks of the 10.25

inch floating touchscreen infotainment system and for those

insisting on good music, there are the signature tweeter 10-

speaker Harman/Kardon® premium sound system with

subwoofer, external amplifier and front centre speaker.

I also like a head up display which is a new addition to the

Soul EV and one that provides instant information on road

speed and the speed of the car without you having to move

your eyes from the road ahead.

I was lucky enough to road test the feature rich First Edition

model which has standard safety technologies such as driver

attention warning, lane keeping assist and forward collision

warning. Blind spot detection when motorway driving and

rear cross traffic alert are useful. The reversing camera

system has guidelines to ensure straight parking and rear

parking sensors. And when I bought a couple of big pots at

the garden centre, I found the boot space of 315 litres will

extend to 1,339 litres when the seats are folded down.

The main reason why this Kia is so practical is because the

Soul can be recharged to 80 per cent battery life in just 54

minutes and has a 280 miles driving range with combined

use. With my city driving life I could have achieved a range

of 402 miles Kia says. The Soul is up to 30 per cent more

energy efficient than Europe’s current best-selling electric

car.

Kia has just launched KiaCharge, an app, which gives owners

of battery electric vehicles, access to more than 13,900

charging points across the UK, using a single account.

Created in partnership with Digital Charging Solutions, Kia

owners can also access more than 178,000 charging points

across 28 European countries without the need for

additional contracts.

Kia’s seven-year, 100,000-mile warranty will cover the electric

motor and battery pack. Kia Corporation has announced

plans to launch seven new dedicated EVs between now and

2027. If they are all as practical and innovative as the Soul

EV and with the addition of the fantastic forecourt

infrastructure at Braintree, to be repeated all over the UK,

the automotive future, minus diesel and petrol doesn’t seem

such a great loss.

You don’t need to move house to

get the extra space you need

With the experience of

lockdown and more time than

ever spent at home, you may

be re-evaluating your housing

needs.

Of course, being at home with

your family on a more regular

basis may well have made you

realise you need more space. Or

you may be having to work from

home more and you need

additional space to cater for a

new daily routine.

With the country, and the UK

economy, slowly coming out of

lockdown, it’s no surprise that any

thoughts of moving house will be

off the agenda, particularly with

the stamp duty holiday ending.

But the good news is, you don’t

have to move to get the extra

space you need. A modern

conservatory offers the perfect

alternative to upping sticks and

can serve a variety of purposes,

which is why an increasing

number of homeowners are

deciding to invest in their existing

home rather than climb the

property ladder.

Conservatory fashion has

changed from the traditional

white plastic, u-PVC structure with

polycarbonate roof to the singlestory

extension, often specified

with higher specification products

such as wide span bi-fold doors,

for a more luxurious,

contemporary space.

A combination of cutting-edge

materials and building techniques

also means that, unlike the old

models, new conservatories are

warm in the winter and cool in the

summer, meaning they can be

used as an all-year-round living

space for decades to come. It’s

no wonder that the conservatory

is becoming an integral part of

the home again.

Wolverhampton Glass installs

bespoke new build conservatories

with a state-of-the-art modular

conservatory base and wall

system that’s not only efficient

and attractive, but it’s also a lot

quicker and easier to install too.

A conservatory can be designed

to complement both your home’s

current floorplan and living

requirements, with different

materials and roof options to

choose from.

Generally, you don’t need

planning permission for a

conservatory as it is categorised

under ‘permitted development

rights,’ meaning you don’t have

to worry about any possible red

tape.

And if you think you will be

contemplating a move later

down the line, a conservatory is a

great way of increasing the value

of your home.

So, whether you’re after a

designated children’s playroom,

a bigger lounge to spend time

with family in; a space to work in,

or a link to your garden or the

outdoors for the summer, a

conservatory ticks all the boxes –

and can really help you reinvent

the way you use your home.

With over 45 years of industry

experience, and more than

25,000 completed projects across

the Midlands, you can trust that

your home is in good hands with

Wolverhampton Glass.

Wolverhampton Glass is also part

of Sustainium Group, a consortium

of world-class home improvement

companies that believe

homeowners deserve innovative,

quality products and wonderful

customer experience – all

provided in an ethical and

sustainable way.

Exciting new

endurance event

comes to Weston Park

The stunning location of Weston Park, Shropshire, is no stranger

to events with thousands attending the various outdoor events,

large and small they have on offer throughout the year. With

the event industry being extremely hard hit during the

pandemic, they are thrilled to announce a brand-new

endurance event - the Weston Park Triathlon which is due to

take place at the venue in May 2022.

The Triathlon is organised by well-known North Wales based

company, Always Aim High Events, whose iconic races include

the Slateman, Snowman and Sandman Triathlon series.

Renowned for delivering some of the UK’s finest triathlons, the

Weston Park Triathlon will make an excellent addition to their

2022 event calendar.

Always Aim High Events Managing Director Tim Lloyd said “We

are extremely excited to be bringing our world class events

over to Weston Park. The past year has been one of the most

difficult years for us as a business, but we are determined to

come out of the pandemic stronger. The endurance sports

market has seen some brilliant growth in recent years and

with many people taking up running, cycling and open water

swimming during the pandemic, it is great to be able to

host a Triathlon in the amazing grounds of Weston Park”

The Triathlon will take place early on the race calendar, being

one of the very first open water swims of the year. Always Aim

High Events will be offering a super sprint, as well as a sprint

distance making it a great event for those who are new to the

sport as well as a great season opener for the more elite

competitors.

Jennifer Astbury, Head of Estate Operations said “We are

delighted to welcome Always Aim High Events to Weston. The

Weston Park Triathlon will be a great new addition to our events

portfolio and competitors will get to experience areas of the

Park normally off the beaten track including the stunning Park

Pool.”

Participants will also be able to enjoy the lively event village on

offer at the event which will include Music, commentary,

shopping, local food stalls and chill out zones. For a special

reduced rate, spectators can come along and enjoy the

excellent facilities of Weston Park from long walks around the

Parkland, to relaxing in the formal gardens to running wild in

the Woodland Adventure Playground.

Entries are now open for all distances, with an early

bird price currently available for the next 6 weeks.
