CANNOCK AND DISTRICT

LADIES PROBUS CHAIR YOGA

Following a tasty two course meal; chicken, salmon

or vegetarian choice at Chase Golf and Country

Club, Members of Cannock and District Ladies

Probus Club felt trepidation about their afternoon

Speaker. Chair Yoga was to be introduced to

their lives but the thought of exercise following

a pleasant meal, seemed at odds during a social

afternoon with friends.

Despite this, Rebecca Clarke was given a warm

welcome then shared her journey, from tutoring Yoga

and Pilates since 1991. She is also a personal trainer,

which includes one to one work but has also taught

Aerobics and Line Dancing as exercise classes have

evolved. Teaching at a local college for almost twenty

years, last year she made a life changing decision, by

leaving to take a one-year intensive yoga course. Feeling

college students have less enthusiasm to learn, she

now chooses to work with older adults. Her methods

include using tennis balls and bean bags because this

challenges co-ordination, it makes the brain work and

introduces fun into her sessions. Encouraging adults

to be active and keep mobility, the brain needs to be

active or the rest of the body will suffer.

Discussing barriers people face as they get older, she

explained how easy it is if coping with age related

conditions, to lose confidence when inactive. Research

demonstrates how individual conditions such as MS,

ME, arthritis or people with hip replacements, can all

be helped simply by standing from a chair correctly as

it alters our posture. It can improve health conditions

and bones are more likely

can cause stress and affect mood

but

learning breathing control can reduce Panic Attacks

while, social interaction and friendship groups all help.

Breathing helps the Mind and Body so, the practice of

yoga gives tools for a healthy body and better life.

Members expected a seated yoga demonstration

when invited to volunteer, however instead, Rebecca’s

enthusiasm meant everyone joined in. Starting simply

with posture and reaching out arms, all became

engaged with the very gentle Chair yoga. Gentle

breathing exercises, with people only doing what

suited, Rebecca then introduced bean bags and tennis

balls reminding it was supposed to be fun.

Chairman’s ‘Thought for The Day,’ closed meeting and

members advised, April Meeting would be Flower

or business ladies meet 1st Thurs each month at

The Chase Golf Club, 12 noon, where they share

LATEST ADDITION TO NATIONAL

MINERS’ MEMORIAL

Visitors to the National Miners’ Memorial at the

NMA can now enhance their visit by listening to

the Story of the Plaques as they walk around the

bronze plaques set into the Derbyshire stone,

resembling a drift mine and depicting the men,

women and children who worked in the U.K’s coal

mines. The film is available via a QR code which

is fixed to the plinth at the entrance to the NMM

site on Gifford Avenue. The film was produced by

CHAPS member Lisa Shephard, the words were

written by Len Prince and are read by the

Lord-Lieutenant of Staffordshire, Ian Dudson,

CBE, K St J; CHAPS members and former miners

Len Prince and Alex Smith; historian Brian

Elliott; Colonel Richard Hawkins from the Royal

Engineers; and Mike Mellor, President of CHAPS.

A second QR code takes you to the music Grounded

in Gratitude and its accompanying film showing men

and women at work in the coal mines. The music

was written by Handre Potgeiter, a South African

composer and friend of CHAPS, the film was edited

by Matthew Farrell.

Together, they create

a beautiful, emotive

piece, watching it is often

accompanied by a tear or two!

For those not visiting the Arboretum - or for those

who want to watch and listen again at their leisure,

the films are available from the Projects page on

CHAPS’ updated website:

www.chaseartsforpublicspaces.co.uk

CELEBRATING 20 YEARS IN ECCLESHALL

SPENCER THE JEWELLER

Twenty years ago, David Spencer decided it was

time to close up his jewellery workshop after 17

busy years in Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter.

He had built a wonderful business, designing and

manufacturing gold jewellery, including designing

and making chain from Clogau Gold, the famous

Welsh Gold of Royalty for the last 100 years. But

David had set his sights on a new jewel.... Eccleshall.

Spencer The Jeweller opened its doors on 1st April 2004,

a few weeks before the birth of David and Angela’s third

daughter. The family relocated soon after, to focus

on running their business together. This year they

are celebrating 20 years as a successful independent

jewellers, still based on Eccleshall high street!

The team now includes Nicola, a goldsmith, and Deb,

a silversmith. Who have both worked with David and

Angela for most of those 20 years and their skills and

expertise in the workshop and with clients are first

class.

The emphasis from the day one remains the same,

bespoke jewellery, quality repairs and the remodelling

of customers pieces on the premises. Clients are

constantly amazed at the team’s vision, skill and ability

to take an old, unfashionable or even broken piece

of Jewellery, and then transform it into a brand new

piece, made to their requirements. Over the years

David has noticed a

huge rise in orders for

bespoke Engagement,

Anniversary and Wedding

rings.

Did you know that Spencer the

Jeweller are masters of silverware

repairs and polishing, including rhodium plating? They

also can offer stone replacements, ring sizing, sensitive

refurbishment of heirlooms and even pearl stringing.

Also battery changes including pressure checks, watch

and clock servicing and repairs, and even quotations

and valuations for insurance and probate purposes.

David and Angela are both passionate about Eccleshall,

and over the years have joined in the Eccleshall Street

Markets, and whilst making jewellery outside, and

cleaning jewellery free of charge the team have raised

thousands of pounds by for The County Air Ambulance

(there’s also a collection box for the charity in the shop.

This charity is very important to the Spencer Family).

Spencer The Jeweller’s team, David, Angela, Nicola

and Deb, have earnt the reputation for being honest,

trustworthy and friendly. Why not call in today to

congratulate them on their 20 year anniversary in

Eccleshall.

MIDLANDS AIR AMBULANCE CHARITY

RESPONDS TO RECORD 75,000TH MISSION

Midlands Air Ambulance Charity has now

attended more than 75,000 missions across

Gloucestershire, Herefordshire, Shropshire,

Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent, the West

Midlands, and Worcestershire, which is more

than any other air ambulance in the UK.

The lifesaving pre-hospital emergency service

operates three air ambulance helicopters and a fleet

of critical care cars across its six-county region. The

charity has now surpassed its 75,000th mission,

approximately 40 per cent more missions than any

other air ambulance in the UK and continues to make

vital lifesaving missions every day and into the night.

The charity’s 75,000th mission was to a female, who

had sustained a traumatic head injury in Worcester in

February 2024. She was given advanced treatment on

scene before being conveyed via land ambulance to

Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham. A critical care

paramedic and pre-hospital emergency medicine

doctor from Midlands Air Ambulance Charity were

on-board the vehicle escorting her to hospital. This

was to ensure her condition could be monitored and

stabilised and any further advanced interventions

administered immediately.

Rob Davies, patient liaison lead and critical care

paramedic for Midlands Air Ambulance Charity, said:

“As we approach our 33rd year of operation, we are

proud to have surpassed a record 75,000th mission

milestone.

“When our service

first started it was

about getting the

patient to the hospital

quickly, now we bring the

hospital to our patients. The

interventions we perform, coupled

with the advanced medicines and hospital-level

equipment we bring means that we can stabilise

our patients’ conditions at the scene of the incident

before then taking them to hospital. In our 75,000th

mission this certainly was the case.

“Whilst we mark our milestone mission, I’d like to

highlight our patient liaison service. Myself and my

colleague, Kerry Hemus, are keen to speak to anyone

who has received care from Midlands Air Ambulance

Charity to support them with their ongoing recovery,

and we also offer this service to loved ones too.”

To get in touch with Midlands Air Ambulance Charity’s

patient liaison service please email:

patient.liaison@midlandsairambulance.com or

CANNOCK SOROPTIMISTS

MAMMOTH BOOK DELIVERY

5,404 – that’s how many pre-loved children’s

books Cannock & District Soroptimists have been

able to deliver to Beverley Ricketts who runs

Rotary Books4Home.

This incredible number is due to the generosity and

kindness of numerous families within the Cannock

Chase – and wider – area. We are grateful to those

who provided collection points; there were many

libraries, including Brereton, Burntwood, Cannock,

Heath Hayes, Hednesford, Norton Canes, Penkridge

and Rugeley; many of them have said they will have

a collection box permanently! Other collection points

were Nina Charles Beauty Salon in Cheslyn Hay and

Teddies Hair Salon in Cannock.

In addition, groups and individuals got in touch to say

they would like to donate and Soroptimists arranged

to go and collect books, in many cases forming

contacts that will continue.

Rotary Books4Home provides pre-loved books to

children who otherwise would not own a book of

their own – something that a lot of us can’t imagine.

With the continuing difficulties families face when

managing their finances, books for the children are

a luxury they cannot

afford.

When World Book Day

arrives on March 7th, 5,404

children are going to get the best

gift – a book of their own to read and keep.

Thank you to all children, parents and grandparents

who have made this possible – you have done

something wonderful and you have made a

difference to children’s lives.

Soroptimists please visit their Facebook page:

Mary Berry’s

Chocolate Roulade

Mary Berry’s gorgeous chocolate roulade

is made without flour so it’s light as a feather.

Add berries to the whipped cream filling to

make a decadent gluten-free dessert.

Method

1. Preheat the oven to

180°C/160°C Fan/Gas 4. Lightly

grease a 13in x 9in Swiss roll

tin then line the base and sides

of the tin with a large sheet of

greaseproof paper, pushing it

into the corners. Next, melt the

chocolate in a bowl set over

a pan of simmering water.

Remove from the heat and set

aside to cool.

2. Place the egg whites in a

large bowl and whisk until

stiff but not dry. If you turn the

bowl upside down, the whites

should be stiff enough not to

fall out. Place the egg yolks in

a separate bowl with the sugar

and whisk on high speed for

2-3 minutes or until thick and

creamy. Pour in the cooled

chocolate and gently fold

together until well combined.

3. Gently stir two large

spoonfuls of the egg whites

into the chocolate mixture to

loosen the mix, then fold in the

remaining egg whites using

a large metal spoon (without

squashing out the air you’ve

just beaten in). Sift in the cocoa

and lightly fold it in. Pour the

mixture into the prepared

tin and level. Bake for 20-25

minutes or until risen and the

top feels firm and slightly crisp

then remove from the oven and

leave to cool.

4. Now whip the cream until

it forms soft peaks when the

whisk is removed. Next lay

a large piece of greaseproof

paper on the work surface and

dust it lightly with icing sugar.

Turn the roulade out on to the

paper so its lining paper is on

top, then carefully peel off the

paper. Spread the roulade with

the whipped cream, leaving a

border of about 2cm all the way

around the edges.

5.With one of the shortest

edges facing you, make a cut

along it with a sharp knife,

going about halfway through

the sponge to tighten the centre

of the spiral. Now roll this cut

edge over tightly and use the

paper to help continue the tight

rolling, by pulling it away from

Ingredients:

• 175g good-quality dark

chocolate, finely chopped

• 6 free-range eggs, yolk and

white separated

• 175g caster sugar

• 2 tbsp cocoa powder

• 300ml double cream

• Icing sugar, to dust

• Strawberries, to serve

Top Tip

• To h e l p t h e p a p e r fi t s n u g l y

into the corners of the tin,

make a small diagonal

snip in each corner of the

baking paper.

you as you roll. Don’t worry if

the roulade cracks - that is quite

normal and all part of its charm.

6. Finish with the join

underneath then lift the roulade

onto a serving plate or board

using a large wide spatula.

Dust with icing sugar and serve

with strawberries.

BAFTA WINNER MOLLY WINDSOR JOINS

STAFFORD SHAKESPEARE CAST

The Gatehouse Theatre and Stafford Shakespeare

are delighted to announce that BAFTA-winner

MOLLY WINDSOR has joined the cast of this

summer’s TWELFTH NIGHT: A Cornish Tale.

Molly will take on the role of Viola in the production,

which runs from June 21-July 7 and is sponsored by

Staffordshire University.

She is best known for her roles in the 2009 Channel 4

film The Unloved (2009) and the 2017 BBC miniseries

Three Girls (2017), about the Rochdale child grooming

scandal.

It was for that role that she won the 2018 BAFTA TV

Award for Best Actress.

In 2017, Molly was also named as a BAFTA

Breakthrough Brit, one of the 20 members of the

prestigious group from the film, television and

gaming industries.

She has also starred in hit BBC One series Traces

(with Martin Compston), War of the Worlds (with

Gabriel Byrne and Elizabeth McGovern) and primetime

ITV drama Cheat.

TWELFTH NIGHT: A Cornish Tale director Sean Turner

said: ‘Molly is one of the most exciting acting talents

I have ever come across, I am thrilled to be finally

working with her, and on one of Shakespeare’s most

complex and endearing roles.’

lly is an exciting up-and-coming artist and I’m very

pleased she has accepted the role of Viola. We are

very lucky to have attracted a talent such as Molly to

Stafford Shakespeare.’

Gatehouse general manager Gary Stevens said:

‘We are absolutely thrilled to have Molly join us in

Stafford this summer.

‘She is very, very highly regarded in the industry and

winning a BAFTA at such a young age just goes to

show how prodigious her talent is.

‘The opening of TWELFTH NIGHT: A Cornish Tale is

now just a few months away and there’s a real buzz

about this production already.

‘Tickets sales are outstripping A MIDSUMMER

NIGHT’S DREAM so our advice is to book now for the

best seats.’

Top comic SEANN WALSH and Netflix star NATALIE

ANDERSON (Fool Me Once) have already been

announced for the production, which is on course to

break records for a drama at the Gatehouse.

Tickets are available now, starting from just

£23.00. Larger groups and school visits will receive

a discount. Call the Box Office on 01785 619080 for

details or visit www.gatehousetheatre.co.uk
