Welcome to

our July Issue

With Summer upon us and more of us

venturing outside, there’s plenty going

on in our local community so take a

look at our bumper ‘news and features’

section from page 56.

The great news is that the long-awaited

Tour de Manc has been rescheduled to

take place on Sunday 5th September, full

details on pages 56-57.

This month Nigel Morrell highlights the

danger of youngsters using local reservoirs

as swimming facilities. Only recently on

a walk round Greenbooth reservoir, my

daughter and I passed the friends and

families of the teenager who drowned

on Monday 19th June 2017 as they

remembered him on the fourth anniversary

of this tragedy. Nigel also points out other

factors to be aware of both inside and

outside the home ensuring a safe and

happy Summer, something I’m sure we are

all looking forward to.

In addition to the successful Spring Clean

which took place recently in Norden village,

there will be a litter pick taking place

in Bamford on Sunday 5th July. Local

residents are encouraged to take part in

this fight against mindless individuals who

throw their litter wherever and whenever

they fancy.

Until next month...

Kate & Becky

Woodland

Garden Rooms

We create bespoke structures that are designed

and built around your needs. Our high specification rooms

aren’t just out-buildings, they’re a warm, bright and airy space

that you can use all year round.

All our rooms

are as a minimum

l Fully insulated

l Rubber EPDM roof

covered

l Come with fully installed

electric feed, sockets

and downlights

l Cladded in wood or PVC

l French style PVC doors

We specialise in Red Cedar

cladding, Larch and the

fashionable charred wood effect

also known as ‘Yakisugi’ and deal

with several local suppliers to get

the best quality and price.

Our showpiece aluminium doors

are a stand out feature and are

made to an exceptional standard.

Tough but lightweight, slim but

prominent in either bi-fold or lift

and slide options.

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


In addition to the room build we can

decorate, lay flooring, mount TV wall

brackets and heaters and even design

and build bars and storage to suit your

needs. All you need to do is walk down

the garden path and enjoy (we can even

make you a path if you don’t have one).

The whole build can take as little

as three weeks from start to finish so

you can be in your room sooner than

you think.

About us

We are a local, family business with

experience in joinery and building,

engineering, telecoms and smart tech.

Our qualified, experienced project

manager will help you through the whole

process and will always aim to deal with

any queries or questions before, during

or after the build as soon as possible.

Once you have got in touch with us our

aim is to make the whole experience

as quick, clean and easy as we can and

ensure you are as happy with the end

product as if we had built it for ourselves.

Prices start from

£15,995

Ex VAT. Subject to site survey

WE CAN ALSO

Build fully insulated ground

floor extensions onto existing

structures that in most cases

are not subject to planning or

building regulations. You could

have a completed extension in

less than a month.

Supply and fit Roof Lanterns

to add a light and airy feel to

darker areas and adapt any

lighting issues to compliment.

Chris Clarkson

Member of Parliament for Heywood & Middleton

Parliament has been in recess and It’s been

wonderful to meet with local businesses,

charities and groups recently to hear

about what they’ve been doing during

the pandemic and how they’re planning

to get back to normal.

Right now we’re still on track to end restrictions

in June, but that will rely on us all doing our

part – the single biggest thing you can do is get

your vaccination when you are eligible. I had my

first jab in mid-May and I couldn’t have been more

impressed by the efficiency and the sheer scale of

the scheme.

In other news, you may have seen recently that I am

taking on an Apprentice in my Heywood office. This is a

great opportunity for someone to earn a qualification whilst

getting a grounding in the world of politics, so if you know someone who

might be a good fit, head over the Hopwood Hall College’s website or social

media for more details.

As always, my team and I are at the end of the phone if you ever need our

support, so please do get in touch.

How can my team

and I help you?

As your local MP, I’m

here to help you and

your family with any

local or national issues.

I hold regular advice surgeries.

No matter what the issue,

I’d be very happy to hear from you.

ADVERTISING FEATURE

Andy P Collins Wealth Management Limited

Intergenerational Planning

– These words mean many

things to many people, and this

is probably the most diverse

area of planning where I am

regularly asked to assist. The

baby boomers have undoubtedly

made asset wealth on property

and some may have inherited or generated wealth.

However, the questions they ask are “Will we run out of

money“ – “Can we pass our wealth to our offspring”.

Initially, simple planning such as Wills* and Lasting

Powers of Attorney, of which there are two – Health

& Welfare and Property and Financial affairs is the

starting point. I work with fellow professionals where

necessary to create these structures.

Every person has circumstances which are different,

which is why it is critical a full discussion takes

place. Following that start point, it is a matter of

understanding what you are trying to achieve with

all that you have, and then create a bespoke plan

that is flexible to meet any changing circumstances

i.e. cover home fees whilst protecting the estate,

having access to capital and protecting the estate.

Inheritance tax you choose to pay if you don’t use all

of the opportunities to mitigate it. Allowances such

as nil rate bands, Resident Nil rate Bands and annual

exemptions which are sufficient for most people to

achieve their outcomes.

Where more complex situations arise, I will look

to include any number of the following: PETS over

7 years and structures that are effective after 2

years, Business relief, Trusts, Gifting, Loan Trusts,

Discounted Gift Trusts, Charitable donations, Rysaffe

structures, Protection, Tenants in Common, Pensions

and annual exemptions. Increasingly we see changes

to Gifts with reservation and Deprivation of assets

legislation, but with careful planning and flexible

arrangements you can have your cake and eat it

ensuring that taxation is not the largest inheritor of

your estate, but your family are.

So you know what to do – Just ASK!

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 Goals.

As part of my understanding you as an individual or a

business, I review existing plans to check if they are

fit for purpose, and your current wealth is protected,

should any changes not be one you had planned.

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

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 – Just ASK!

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 has 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.

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.

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

will be directly linked to the performance of the funds

you select and the value can therefore go down as

well as up. You may get back less than you invested.

The levels and bases of taxation, and reliefs from

taxation, can change at any time. The value of any

tax relief is dependent on individual circumstances.

*Will writing and Powers of Attorney involve the referral to

a service that is separate and distinct to those offered by

St. James’s Place and along with Trusts are not regulated

by the Financial Conduct Authority.

Meetings can be arranged face to face or

virtually using Microsoft Teams or Zoom

RESCHEDULED

The Tour de Manc is the biggest not for profit charity cycle ride in the UK and

supports hundreds of Greater Manchester charities and good causes. But, like so

many things the coronavirus crisis meant that the event had to be cancelled in

2020 and sadly postponed again in May 2021.

But the folks behind this tour have been hard at work behind the scenes, throughout

the lockdown. Now, with restrictions easing we have had the incredible news that

the Tour de Manc 2021 will be going ahead on Sunday 5th September, with a special

safety plan, to help ensure that riders, supporters and spectators are safe.

The route starts in Middleton before passing though 10 boroughs in Greater

Manchester. People wanting to see all the action can come along to Bowlee for the

start / finish, or to Norden which will once again be hosting the half-way pit stop in

this epic 100 mile challenge.

Councillor Peter Winkler, who coordinates the local leg of the ride said: “It’s always

a superb day, and the riders really appreciate a good cheer. We would welcome

anyone to join us in a socially safe manner to support the riders who are raising

thousands of pounds for various Greater Manchester charities and good causes.”

We are looking for volunteers to help man the Norden pitstop, if you

would like to get involved by helping out on the event day please

contact Peter on 07583 674 503. Lunch will be provided, and

volunteers will receive a special 2021 Tour de Manc Volunteers t-shirt.

Covering Bamford Ward including Marland, Brimrod & Sudden

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

We have all been busy since the election dealing with your ueries and issues, some of

which were raised when we were campaigning. Parking is an area of concern,

particularly around the ulder ill area, and we are working with the ighways

department in an attempt to find a solution.

There is also concern that the speed bumps along Martlett venue have not yet been

installed. t is hoped that these will be done in the autumn, subect to public

consultation. lso, we hope the double yellow lines along War ffice d should be

completed by then.

lthough Crimble all is not in Bamford Ward, we are keeping an eye on the planning

application which has been submitted there.

There have been several instances of anti social behaviour on the football pitches behind

the Green. We and Bridge ootball club have been working with the police to get etra

patrols to stop this nuisance. f you do see any antisocial behaviour there it would be

really helpful to call the police 101 line and report it. s more people report the

incidents the higher priority they become.

imilarly with the bikers who are still using United Utilities land near the iver och. We

are in touch with United Utilities and they have agreed to repair the fence so that the

bikers cannot access the land, but please call 101 if you are bothered by the bikers.

t is good to see that he roundabout at the top of War office d has now been mown and

the planters tidied up. We have reuested that the saddle planters near the Precinct are

filled this year. The Green is looking lovely, thanks to the hard work of the riends group.

Gardeners at Bamford Chapel have also been hard at work and along with the Green,

that area has been entered into the ts our Neighbourhood category of the n Bloom

competition this year. ets hope they both impress the udges when they visit

A Great Summer awaits

if we all work together

The crisis over Covid is a continuing

challenge to our community. Many

of us have endured a year of massive

disruption to our daily lives, particularly

the younger members of our society

who are battling with disrupted

education and an uncertain future.

These are some of the reasons why all our

residents hope for a relaxing Summer and

a time to revive. We can achieve this with

care and consideration for each other,

and for the special environment in our

locality. Summer in our Village got off to

a great start thanks to the efforts of our

community, facilitated by Paul Ellison, who

once again organised a superb Great

Village Clean -Up. The largest turn out of

Villagers so far and the amount of debris

collected from our grot spots is proofpositive

of a Village that cares.

For that care to continue, it is probably

worth reminding Villagers of some

elements which they might wish to

consider as contributions to a safe

and successful Summer for our whole

Community.

SAFETY NEAR WATER

Our Village is gifted with several water

courses and reservoirs which act as a

vital “green lung” in the current crisis. It is,

however, absolutely essential that no one

uses a reservoir as a swimming facility.

United Utilities take every opportunity

to remind Villagers of the hazards of

submerged machinery in their facilities

and the danger of “cold water shock” for

anyone who ventures into these industrial

facilities. Please take every opportunity to

reinforce the message about these perils.

MOORLAND FIRE HAZARDS

The last five years has seen a worrying

rise in the numbers of fires on local

moorland. These are disastrous events

for our natural environment (burnt

peat cannot capture carbon from the

atmosphere) and for farmers who make

their living by grazing our moors. Greater

Manchester Fire and Rescue find their

resources stretched to the limit if they

need to respond to such incidents.

Because of the fine weather, much of our

moor and woodland habitats are tinder

dry so please avoid using open fires or

disposable barbecues in these sensitive

areas. If your outdoor event is likely to

create litter, please add bin-liners to your

shopping list and take your rubbish to the

nearest bin at the end of your event.

FOLLOW THE COUNTRYSIDE CODE

The guidance in the Code has recently

been updated and worth revisiting to

re-familiarise yourselves with some key

safety and environmental messages.

USE OF HIGHWAYS AND RIGHTS

OF WAY

During the Summer months many of the

younger members of our community will

be enjoying cycling or horse riding on

the network of routes in our Ward. Busy

roads mean that these young people

are very vulnerable, and we need to give

them the appropriate space and time

to learn the necessary skills to stay safe.

Please exercise caution, particularly on

our scenic and narrow routes, where

pedestrians and riders are at their most

vulnerable.

PROPERTY SAFETY AND SECURITY

We are approaching the key holiday

season and it is worth reiterating

some seasonal words of caution. If

you are going on holiday, please let

your neighbours know, and cancel any

scheduled deliveries. Make sure that the

perimeter of your property is secure, lock

gates, sheds, and portable equipment

with suitable devices.

Make certain that your alarm and security

lighting is serviced and fully functional.

Before you leave, ensure that all doors

and windows are secure, to deprive

opportunists of a chance to ruin your

holiday. Make sure that vehicles are

locked and secure and any portable

valuables are locked away.

VILLAGE PARKING

For historical reasons, our Village has

limited parking and it is incumbent on all

of us to use the small amount we have

in a responsible fashion. We can all start

by examining our intended journey -is it a

local trip ,which could easily be achieved

on foot or on a bicycle ? If using the car is

unavoidable, please choose your space

with care, do not obstruct access for

other Villagers to homes and businesses.

Avoid parking at junctions and where

there are dropped kerbs. Think about

whether where you have parked is likely to

impede access for emergency services.

SUPPORT OUR POLICE

Norden is fortunate to have a diligent and

dedicated team from GMP, supporting

our community. They can only function

at their best with your support. If you see

crime or suspicious activity, please take

the trouble to report it, either by calling

“101” or using the GMP online portal. The

intelligence you provide may not always

yield an instant result, but in the era of

intelligence led policing, it often assists

officers to build a picture and target

resources.

IF WE ALL DO OUR BIT, WE CAN HAVE

A REALLY GREAT SUMMER.

Save Bamford Greenbelt

Greater Manchester

Spatial Framework

“Places For Everyone”

The third public consultation

document is due to be published

late Summer/early Autumn 2021

It is still the proposed plan to build 450 high

quality houses on land on the righthand side

of Jowking Lane/Norden Road.

The plan is displayed on the Bamford

Community Notice Board on Norden Road.

A proposal within the document would be

for a one way road to handle the traffic.

THIS IS NOT GOING TO GO AWAY!

We need everyone to support us to stop

this plan from going ahead.

Bamford is already over developed, there

are enought houses being built in Rochdale

without using the greenbelt.

It is vital to respond in the correct way

to the plans, and you can contribute to

our crowdfunding campaign to obtain

best legal guidance:

Friends of Bamford Update

Volunteers Needed! We need YOU!

Community Days

For the first time ever, Bamford Community Garden has been entered into the RHS Township

in Bloom Competition, “It’s Your Neighbourhood Category”, as part of Rochdale’s entry. Our

mark counts towards the overall total, and marks are awarded not just on the garden, but for

Community involvement and the overall tidiness of the area. However, we can’t do it alone, we

need YOU to help.

Starting on Sunday, 5th July, and then followed by the first Sunday in every month until Autumn,

from 11.00am till 1.00pm, Friends of Bamford volunteers will be in the Community Garden, doing

whatever needs to be done to maintain and improve the garden. It is hoped that this monthly

fixture will encourage some of the wider community to get involved in maintaining the garden on a

regular basis. No date has been set yet for RHS judging, but we need to be ready.

The Council has no responsibility for maintaining this garden, everything that has been done so

far has been by achieved by volunteers, but there is a limit to how much they can do without

additional help from the wider community. No doubt the bad weather will interfere with our plans

but the most important part of all this is that, however much spare time you have available,

you come along to help whenever you can whilst meeting new people and being part of the

Community. You might even find you like it as its fun!

Litter Pick, Sunday 5th July 11.00am till 1.00pm

As part of The Great British Spring Clean campaign, all local communities are being asked to

collect litter in their areas, aiming to cover a million miles of streets, fields, footpaths, parks, and

public spaces. Bamford is no exception, and in places, certainly needs it.

Litter picking equipment will be available on Bamford Green from 11am and filled bags will be

collected from here. Please try and help.

You can make a difference by

• Joining the litter pick. Bring the kids, they love using litter grabbers!

• Join in with the gardeners, weeding, hoeing, etc, nothing too strenuous.

• Bring any surplus plants you’ve grown at home and plant then in the garden, we have gaps, and

want it to be a riot of colour.

• If you’re feeling generous, buy a tray of plants at the supermarket and bring them along. Every

little helps.

• Buy something for your children to plant in the community garden.

• Encourage your children or grandchildren to paint a stone to add to Jake the Snake.

• Let’s make Bamford Beautiful!

It’s Your Community. Get involved.

Volunteers spring into action and spruce up

Norden for fifth Great British Spring Clean

Volunteers, armed with litter pickers, spruced up Norden over the Bank

Holiday weekend for the annual Keep Britain Tidy Great British Spring Clean.

Approximately 50 volunteers cleared 100 bags of rubbish from across Norden village,

Greenbooth, Ashworth, Birtle, Rooley Moor and Caldershaw in the space of two hours

on Saturday morning of the 29th May.

Volunteers even cleared a fridge freezer, five car tyres and a car door

which had been blighting the area before sitting down to a welldeserved

bacon sandwich and drink.

Sponsored by Norden Bowling & Social Club, the event is now

in its fifth year in Norden with more and more people taking to

the streets each year, including children like Wilson and Douglas

Read, who hate seeing litter when out on family walks.

In April, the brothers cleared bags of rubbish

from the Caldershaw estate, as well as adding

homemade signs to encourage people to take

their litter home.

And – because they couldn’t make it on Saturday

– Rochdale in Bloom partners H Bell & Sons took to the golf

club and Taylor Park on Monday 31st May, ensuring those

areas were also looking spick and span.

Local Keep Britain Tidy #LitterHeroes ambassador Paul

Ellison said: “We had an amazing turnout to help clean up our

beautiful area with some new faces helping out. A big thank

you goes to the Norden Bowling Club for keeping us well-fed and

the Co-op for the last-minute extra bacon and bread, as well as the

Council for collecting the rubbish and loaning out the equipment.”

Paul continued: “It was great to see so many people coming

together and making this another wonderful litterbusting

event; everyone who took part should be

proud of themselves. It was lovely to see so many

enjoying the social aspects of getting out in

the fresh air and doing something for the

community before a much needed catch up

over breakfast.”

The Great British Spring Clean brings

together individuals, community

organisations, businesses, and

councils to make a difference to the

environment on our doorstep and is

run by the environmental charity Keep

Britain Tidy.

A Rochdale in Bloom Project

Moss Row and the

Challenges of Lock Down

I was first aware of Moss Row in 1968 when I got married and was looking to

rent one of the properties on the Row. We were informed that the existing

tenants were being relocated as the Row was to be demolished to make

way for a Bypass. Years later I became involved as a member of the Friends

of Moss Row, also being a member of the Allotment Committee and the

Rochdale in Bloom Committee.

In August 2020 I secured funding from Rochdale Township to erect an interpretation

board telling the history of Moss Row. I planned to collate all the information and

forward it to Michael Buczman, one of the Council officers, who would liaise with

the designer and arrange for it to be produced. Then came lockdown, Touchstones

was closed, and I was unable to access the information and photographs. I contacted

the Norden History Society, of which I am a member,

and they sent an SOS out to see if any members could

help. Christopher Verey contacted me and sent

me photographs which he had obtained from

Touchstones, however they could only be used with

Touchstone`s permission.

I knew that a member of the

former ‘Friends of Moss Row’, Mr

Frank Chapman, had photographs

but unfortunately, he had passed

away some time ago. Councillor Jim Gartside kindly contacted the family on my

behalf, and they lent me his album with permission to use any of the photographs.

Two of the photographs from Touchstones were copyright and belonged to Natural

England and when I contacted them, I was informed that I would need a licence to

use the photographs at a cost of £150. As I had limited funding, that was out of the

question so next I turned to Facebook and through a friend I was put in touch with

Pamela Beaumond Haigh, who used to be a resident on Moss Row. She was able to let

me have a photograph of family life in 1931 and a replica photograph of one of the

Touchstones photographs taken in around 1920. As well as all the photographs that I

needed, Pam also sent me a copy of the

“Ode to Moss Row” written by her mother

when the houses were demolished.

All the information has now finally

been sent to the designer and I am

excitedly awaiting a copy of the design

before I arrange for the Board to be

manufactured. The preparation certainly

created a challenge for me but now

completed, I am grateful to all those who

helped me on this journey. I am hoping

that the board will soon be manufactured

and can be installed on Moss Row for all

to see!

From The Archives

THE FIRST ROCHDALE BOYS GRAMMAR SCHOOL

In the mid 1500’s the town of

Rochdale had a population of

10,000 most of whom had no

education and would count

themselves lucky to receive an

apprenticeship.

The few who could afford to have

their sons well educated (and it was

mainly sons), sent them to Whalley

Abbey whilst poorer families were

reliant on their children’s labour and

therefore saw no use in schooling. The

reformation in the 16th century saw

a move away from schools connected

to the church to the establishment of

grammar schools in towns. Even so,

when such a school was proposed

in Rochdale in 1561 it came through

the auspices of the Anglican church,

Matthew Parker, the Archbishop of

Canterbury, sending a letter to the

inhabitants of Rochdale proposing the

endowment of just such a school.

Although the town was keen to see

a school built, the church at the time

had little finance to make it happen.

However, there was a proposal that

funds be raised and this was

forthcoming partly through the

guarantor help of Sir John Byron

(Steward of Manchester and Rochdale)

and Mr Midgely, a local vicar who not

offered the site for the school opposite

the churchyard. The foundation deed

was completed by three parties,

Archbishop Parker, Dr Porie (Master

of Corpus Christi College, Cambridge)

and Richard Midgely with the intention

of ‘providing true piety and the study of

the Latin tongue.’

Building was completed in 1565, the

structure being, according to Reverend

F R Raines in 1843, a ‘humble structure

of one storey’. Built sixty feet by twenty

in rough stone and covered by heavy

flag slates it was situated by the Parish

Church at the junction of Church Lane,

still called ‘School Lane.’ At the South

end of the interior was an oak desk for

the Master whilst the rest of the room

comprised of benches and desks for the

students. Adjoining the schoolhouse

was a raised, one-room building which

acted as the Master’s House.

It was intended that the first Grammar

School should house between 50-150

boys although the first intake was only

30. Lessons in Latin and the study

of Christianity were the mainstay

along with Greek, writing, arithmetic,

history and geography. John Cole,

writing in 1990 suggested that ‘the

number of pupils attending the

school was extremely small and the

only gave up part of his stipend but institution made little impact on general

70

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


educational standards in the town.’

Although it was supposed to be free,

should pupils want further subjects

such as literature they had to pay a

guinea and a half per quarter for the

tuition. Furthermore, in order to be a

member of the school, those who ‘are

capable of benefitting’ had to pay a

guinea entrance. Boarders were not

taken. It was a requirement that the

school be kept in good condition by the

parishioners.

The Master’s stipend or salary was

£15 per year, an under-Master or

Usher receiving £2 per year. Financial

contributions for this came from

Charles Chadwick of Healey Hall

and £13 10s from the Township

of Butterworth. The first Master

of Rochdale Grammar School was

Reverend Robert Ratcliffe followed by

Reverend Walkden in 1589 after which

there was a succession of ministers of

the church with the exception of Mr

Richard Holte in 1605 although he too

reputedly owned a large collection of

theological books.

By the mid-19th century pupil numbers

were small at the school, only 15

in 1862 and 31 in 1867 studying a

curriculum consisting of English,

Arithmetic, History and Geography,

Geometry and Algebra, Linear

drawing and copying from nature

and Languages (Latin, Greek, French

and German). The full charge for this

education was 6 guineas per annum. A

second Master was employed in later

years and the school – serving boys

aged 8-14 – was divided into junior

and secondary schools, a few boarders

being accepted. It seems that poor

numbers from the grammar school

entering Oxford or Cambridge was,

according to Winter, ‘not remarkable,’

many students leaving the school to

go to other universities in order to

engage in commercial and professional

employment. Behaviour in classes

was thought to be good with only a

‘small amount of punishment needed.’

Headmasters in the 19th century

still came from the clergy, Reverend

Sheffield for example being appointed

by the Archbishop of Canterbury.

By 1845 the original building was in

a state of dilapidation and funds were

found quite quickly to build a new

Grammar School, partly by public funds

raised through a bazaar. The new school

was built on the site of the present

Broadfield Hotel (once the nurse’s home)

on Sparrow Hill in 1846, the original

school being demolished in 1847.

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

IN THE GARDEN

GARDENING TIPS AND ADVICE

FOR JULY

1. Water thoroughly once or twice a week rather than little and often – this encourages plants

to put down roots in search of water rather than coming up to the surface. Remember that

containers and hanging baskets need watering every day and sometimes even twice a day

if it is hot or windy.

2. Hoe beds and borders regularly to get rid of annual weeds like bitter cress and chickweed.

3. Keep your pond topped up with fresh water – a build-up of algae in warm weather can be

toxic, if not fatal for animals and marine life.

4. Pick sweet peas regularly – this is in effect deadheading and will ensure

continued flowering. Remember that sweet peas are thirsty plants so

keep them watered.

5. Deadhead bedding plants and repeat-flowering perennials, to ensure

continuous flowering.

6. Use a forceful jet from a garden hose to knock aphids off water lilies

and other garden plants.

7. Water Tomatoes and Peppers regularly to avoid blossom end rot.

LATEST PROPERTY UPDATE

PROPERTY UPDATE

Time is running out on the Stamp Duty Holiday as house prices hit

seven-year high. Tenants and landlords are to receive additional

support as restrictions ease.

STAMP DUTY DEADLINE

With the Stamp Duty Holiday deadline looming, we are advising

those with property sales in progress to push through completion

in order to take advantage of the potential savings, when in a chain.

The deadline for properties valued up to £500,000 is about to

come to an end on June 30th, however those with properties selling

for up to £250,000 have a little more time. The deadline for these

properties is the end of September 2021.

TENANT / LANDLORD SUPPORT

Renters will continue to be supported as national COVID-19

restrictions ease, with longer notice periods in place until at least

October, Housing Minister Christopher Pincher has announced.

As part of a phased approach, notice periods – previously extended

to 6 months as an emergency measure during the pandemic – are

now set at 4 months. Subject to the public health advice and progress

with the Roadmap, notice periods will return to pre-pandemic levels

from October 1st.

The current ban on bailiff-enforced evictions, introduced as an

emergency measure during lockdown, ended on May 31st. The

measures will ensure renters continue to be protected with longer

notice periods for the coming months, while also helping private

landlords who are highly vulnerable to rent arrears.

HOUSE PRICE HIKE

Annual average UK house price growth jumped 10.9% in May 2021,

marking the highest level in nearly seven years.

Nationwide said average house prices stood at £242,832 last month.

That was up 10.9% from the same month last year, or up £23,930

over the last 12 months. The figure was 1.8% higher in month on

month terms.

The property sector was helped by measures in the March Budget,

from an extension of the stamp duty holiday deadline, to a new

mortgage guarantee scheme to help people with a 5% deposit get

on the property ladder.

The ‘race for space’ continues and those moving or considering a

move, around a third were looking to move to a different area, while

nearly 30% were doing so to access a garden or outdoor space

more easily.
