In a global hair removal market<br />

worth over $1 billion USD, electrolysis<br />

continues to be unrivalled in its ability<br />

to permanently remove unwanted hair.<br />

However, in partnership with your electrologist, you<br />

will achieve permanent results.<br />

In 1875 an ophthalmologist discovered that he<br />

could permanently remove ingrown eyelashes<br />

from his patients. Over 100 years later,<br />

electrolysis continues to be both a safe and<br />

reliable method of treatment.<br />

Electrolysis is a truly unique solution and can be<br />

performed on almost everyone!<br />

Electrolysis is 100% effective on all genders, all<br />

skin colours and skin types and on all hair colours<br />

including those troublesome white, red or grey<br />

hairs. Often times we are trapped in an endless cycle<br />

of reaching for our razor, waiting between waxing<br />

appointments or enduring the pinch of the tweezer,<br />

however methods which involve the forcible yanking<br />

or ripping of hairs from their follicles commonly lead<br />

to other skin issues such as hyperpigmentation, microscopic<br />

cuts in the skin or ingrown hairs.<br />

As shown by the image below, ultimately we are left<br />

with heavily distorted hair follicles, which respond<br />

with a better blood supply and enlarged follicle.<br />

This means the body produces thicker hairs than we<br />

started out with!<br />

Hormones may run the show, but we can fight back<br />

Hormones act as chemical messengers and we<br />

all experience major fluctuations in the levels of<br />

androgens (a group of sex hormones) during times<br />

such as:<br />

- puberty<br />

- stress<br />

- pregnancy<br />

- menopause<br />

It is during these times, that excessive levels of<br />

androgens “switch on” stem cells in the skin -<br />

et voila, new unwanted hairs emerge!<br />

Unfortunately sufferers of a condition called Polycystic<br />

Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) can attest to this. Of those<br />

affected by this condition, approximately 70%<br />

experience unwanted hair growth on the face and<br />

chest.<br />

In short, knowing that we are able to permanently<br />

remove these troublesome hairs altogether is a<br />

powerful feeling, especially given the emotional<br />

and mental stress accompanied with constantly<br />

maintainance.<br />

As with 75 High anything, St | Marlow electrolysis is a process. We target<br />

Active follicles can take<br />

anywhere between 3-12 months to grow new hairs.<br />

Hello & welcome!<br />

Have you wondered why there are wars, why there is<br />

conflict in our country, why people are spiteful on social<br />

media?<br />

You may have reflected on this already but I believe<br />

it’s because there is a lack of love. If there was love in<br />

a person’s heart then why would they want to harm or<br />

hurt another human life? Remember the saying, “sticks<br />

and stones may break my bones but words can never<br />

hurt me” ? Well that’s not exactly true, hurtful words<br />

could hurt someone for the rest of their life.<br />

Children who are at their most impressionable, need<br />

special care when it comes to conversations with carers<br />

and mentors. When we are tired or busy words can<br />

come out without careful thought. It’s not easy but with<br />

awareness we can get better at it.<br />

Some traditions have the philosophy of harming no<br />

other. Be it human, animal or insect. The most powerful<br />

full moon happens every April and this year it fell on the<br />

23rd April. This time of year is called Wesak. You may<br />

like to research it for yourself.<br />

Energy fluctuations can bring out the worst or good in<br />

people - that’s why full moons can be associated with<br />

werewolf’s and other spooky creatures! If we try and<br />

make ourselves better human beings, then when the<br />

full moon comes round we can magnify all of our<br />

goodness!<br />

Try and find goodness and gratitude in your life.<br />

Criticism and judgement are all forms of unkindness.<br />

See the good in people and try and view it from their<br />

perspective even if we don’t agree. None of us are<br />

perfect but we can always keep learning, growing and<br />

evolving.<br />

Sending you all love,<br />

Therese<br />

COMMUNITY NEWS<br />

COAM Campfire<br />

Story Time<br />

A rich and diverse history of the people<br />

of the Chilterns was the theme for this<br />

year’s Campfire Heritage Stories event at<br />

Chiltern Open Air Museum.<br />

Dozens of families braved the chilly weather<br />

to cram into the 16th Century barn to hear<br />

tales told by community representatives<br />

whose families settled in our area from far<br />

warmer climes - Jamaica, Barbados, Kenya<br />

and Uganda.<br />

Their stories painted a vivid picture of their<br />

experiences of moving to a new home,<br />

how they struggled and adapted to a new<br />

culture, and how they had enriched their new<br />

communities with the flavours, colours, and<br />

wisdom from the homes they left behind.<br />

Among the speakers, Elizabeth Dench, one<br />

of the first black women to ever work as cabin<br />

crew for British Airways predecessors BOAC,<br />

impressed the audience with her experience<br />

representing Jamaica at the Miss World<br />

contest in 1970; the famous one that was<br />

disrupted by women’s liberation protestors.<br />

She came to settle here with her family later in<br />

the decade.<br />

The stories were all told with the use of<br />

everyday objects from the Museum’s<br />

collection that evoked strong memories.<br />

Karen Bonner, Chief Nurse of Buckinghamshire<br />

NHS Trust, told how her parents came from<br />

Jamaica and Barbados and kept the memories<br />

of the islands alive through their cooking and<br />

by having one room spick and span and only<br />

for visitors. Karen confessed that she and her<br />

brother had often snuck in to play despite<br />

the strict rule. Her mother, who was in the<br />

audience, seemed genuinely shocked.<br />

Following the event, more stories were shared<br />

and connections made between visitors and<br />

Storytellers whilst toasting marshmallows<br />

around the roaring campfire.<br />

Recordings of COAM’s Campfire Heritage<br />

Stories will be available via the Museum’s<br />

website. The project is supported by The<br />

Rothschild Foundation.<br />

Museum General Manager, Helen Light said,<br />

“It was a great, heart-warming afternoon. We<br />

have twenty more special events at COAM to<br />

look forward to this year. We hope to see you<br />

all soon.”<br />

FINANCIAL NEWS<br />

Inheritance Tax<br />

Protecting your assets<br />

for the next generation<br />

The number of individuals caught by Inheritance<br />

Tax (IHT) is at an all-time high, so it is worth<br />

understanding the main exemptions.<br />

Marital Status: Transfers between spouses or civil partners<br />

made both during life and on death are exempt from IHT.<br />

Nil-Rate Band (NRB): The value of assets that, on death, can<br />

be passed to beneficiaries free of inheritance tax. Since 2009<br />

the NRB has been frozen at £325,000. For married couples<br />

and civil partnerships, any allowance that remains unused on<br />

death can be transferred to the surviving partner, meaning<br />

qualifying survivors can pass up to £650,000 to beneficiaries<br />

free of IHT.<br />

Main Residence Nil-Rate Band (RNRB): Property price<br />

inflation is one of the key reasons IHT is now applicable<br />

to more individuals than ever. To help counter this the<br />

Government introduced a RNRB in 2017, which provides<br />

married couples and civil partners an inheritance tax-free<br />

allowance of £1m when combined with their existing NRB.<br />

The allowance is tapered away on a 2:1 basis for estates<br />

with a value of over £2m.<br />

Annual Exemption: Individuals may make transfer exempt<br />

from IHT up to £3,000 in any one tax year with the ability to<br />

carry forward the previous year’s allowance for one year if not<br />

already utilised.<br />

Small Gifts: Individuals may gift up to £250 to any number<br />

of parties (other than an individual in receipt of the annual<br />

exemption) in any one tax year.<br />

Normal Expenditure: An often-overlooked exemption, if a<br />

transfer is part of a donor’s normal expenditure, is made out of<br />

income and doesn’t affect their usual living standard, it will be<br />

exempt from IHT. This area of planning can be quite complex<br />

so financial guidance should be sought.<br />

Wedding Gifts: Donors can gift £5,000 if parent to either party,<br />

£2,500 if grandparent and £1,000 if any other person.<br />

Business Relief (BR): A tax relief provided by the UK Government<br />

as an incentive to increase investment in certain types of<br />

trading businesses.<br />

Pensions: There is a common misconception that assets left in<br />

an individual’s pension will be free from tax when passed to their<br />

beneficiaries. Whilst true for IHT, it is important to consider the<br />

wider tax implications such as the type of pension and when the<br />

proceeds can be passed without the beneficiaries having to pay<br />

income tax.<br />

What’s been happening at<br />

<strong>Beaconsfield</strong> Town Council?<br />

April saw the start of our new<br />

civic year <strong>2024</strong>-2025. The Annual<br />

Town meeting took place on 18th<br />

April where speakers from local<br />

community groups have been invited<br />

by the <strong>May</strong>or to address the town<br />

about their achievements over the<br />

last year.<br />

On the 16th <strong>May</strong>, the Annual Town Council<br />

meeting will take place. This is the meeting<br />

where the <strong>May</strong>or and Deputy <strong>May</strong>or for the<br />

forthcoming civic year <strong>2024</strong>-2025 will be<br />

elected, known as <strong>May</strong>or Making.<br />

The Town Council manages a number of<br />

woodland areas and work has started on<br />

the renewal of our 10-year woodland<br />

management plan. We undertake this work<br />

with a specialist and guidance from the<br />

Forestry Commission. It enables us to<br />

manage woodland areas in a sustainable and<br />

controlled manner, to recognised industry<br />

standards.<br />

The Friends of Holtspur Bank and Butterfly<br />

Conservation are doing great work on our<br />

Nature Reserve and Butterfly Reserve. We<br />

are currently working with these teams to<br />

ensure regular maintenance continues and<br />

are exploring funding opportunities to<br />

continue the environmental and conservation<br />

work that takes place on these reserves.<br />

Our grounds service is going from strength<br />

to strength and we hope to expand our<br />

capability as we move from winter to<br />

summer work.<br />

Neighbourhood Plan Update<br />

The <strong>Beaconsfield</strong> Neighbourhood Plan is<br />

Planning Policy that would come into force<br />

for just the parish of <strong>Beaconsfield</strong> with local<br />

policies in addition to the National Planning<br />

Policy and the Buckinghamshire Local Plan,<br />

which is expected in <strong>2024</strong>/25. It is entirely<br />

separate from the withdrawn SBDC draft<br />

Local Plan.<br />

The planning authority, Buckinghamshire<br />

Council started the Regulation 16<br />

consultation on our <strong>Beaconsfield</strong><br />

Neighbourhood Plan (the Plan) in the last<br />

quarter of 2023. Since then, they have<br />

appointed an independent examiner<br />

to review and ensure that the Plan is<br />

appropriate and meets the various<br />

conditions specific to a neighbourhood plan.<br />

Once the <strong>Beaconsfield</strong> Neighbourhood Plan<br />

has met the conditions it will be proceed<br />

to a referendum which residents may vote<br />

on. Take a look at our website to see how<br />

the policies are designed to affect our town.<br />

LEGAL ADVICE<br />

Children and Divorce<br />

The impact of divorce/separation on children<br />

cannot be understated. It impacts each<br />

child differently and often the extent of that<br />

impact may not be immediately evident.<br />

The welfare and needs of a child are the Court’s<br />

primary concern. This is in relation to both their<br />

financial needs (e.g. having somewhere to live) but<br />

also their physical, emotional, developmental and<br />

educational wellbeing.<br />

The Court does not want to make an Order in<br />

respect of children if it does not have to. It would<br />

prefer for parents to agree matters themselves. Only<br />

if an agreement cannot be reached and one person<br />

feels it necessary to issue an application, will the<br />

Court become involved.<br />

It is, however, always important to consider whether<br />

it is in a child’s best interests for the matter to be<br />

litigated through Court as the children will likely<br />

become involved in that process. The Court will<br />

want to try to ascertain their wishes and feelings,<br />

which may require them to meet with a Court<br />

appointed Social Worker. This therefore puts<br />

significant pressure on children and places them<br />

Beacs A5 half page edited 1.pdf 1 30/01/<strong>2024</strong> 16:18:13<br />

in a position they would likely rather not be.<br />

At Rayden Solicitors, we can help guide you through<br />

all issues relating to a divorce/separation including<br />

the arrangements for your children and how best to<br />

manage matters where there is disagreement. Going<br />

to Court should be a matter of last resort as it is not<br />

always in the best interests of the child to do so.<br />

Points to consider prior to engaging in Court Proceedings<br />

1. Attend Separated Parents groups or talks to learn<br />

how best to parent a child separately;<br />

2. Inform the child’s school about the divorce so<br />

they can help to support the child as needed;<br />

3. Consider what the child wants rather than what<br />

either you or your former partner would want;<br />

4. Get legal advice early on the law with regards to<br />

children to ensure any negotiations or discussions<br />

are based on the law and child-focussed;<br />

5. Try alternative ways of resolving matters such as<br />

mediation or arbitration<br />

EYE NEWS<br />

Suffering from<br />

digital eye<br />

strain?<br />

Do you struggle with sore eyes, headaches,<br />

eye strain, dry or gritty eyes or blurred vision?<br />

Have you noticed this after using your pc or<br />

laptop at work or leisure, or after looking at a<br />

tablet or mobile?<br />

Regular eye tests are an essential part of maintaining<br />

your eye health and ensuring optimum vision and<br />

comfort. If you have any of these symptoms you may<br />

be experiencing digital eye strain. If you currently wear<br />

glasses you may benefit from ‘Anti fatigue’ (also known<br />

as ‘Relax’) lenses. These lenses can help your eyes if<br />

you spend hours on a mobile phone or tablet as near<br />

tasks involve extra effort from your eyes.<br />

If you wear glasses for reading ask about ‘Office’ (also<br />

known as ‘Occupational’) lenses. These have a longer<br />

working distance so that screens and near text are<br />

both in focus. These lenses are also good for other<br />

hobbies where you may need to see detail at arms<br />

length.<br />

Another option is a ‘Blue control’ filter on your lenses.<br />

Early research suggests that the shorter wavelength<br />

of blue light emitted by electronic devices can cause<br />

fatigue and eyestrain. This filter absorbs the blue<br />

light before it reaches the eye. You may also find that<br />

comfort eye drops recommended by your optician<br />

can also help to relieve dry or gritty eyes.<br />

Whatever you feel ensure that if you have any<br />

concerns regarding the health of your eyes or<br />

vision ask your optician.<br />

COMMUNITY NEWS<br />

Will Power to<br />

support Rennie<br />

Grove Peace<br />

Hospice Care<br />

Rennie Grove Peace Hospice Care has<br />

announced the return of its annual Make<br />

Your Will Month event this <strong>May</strong> and is<br />

encouraging Buckinghamshire residents<br />

to think about their affairs, and whether<br />

their wishes are clear.<br />

The charity’s annual Will-writing event sees<br />

local solicitors offer appointments for people<br />

to write or update their Will, free of charge.<br />

The participating solicitors waive their basic<br />

Will-writing fee in return for a donation to<br />

Rennie Grove Peace. Participants are asked to<br />

make a suggested minimum donation of £175<br />

for a single Will, or £275 for a pair of mirror<br />

Wills.<br />

Participating solicitors are located across<br />

Buckinghamshire with practices in High<br />

Wycombe, Gerrards Cross and <strong>Beaconsfield</strong><br />

taking part.<br />

Tracey Hancock, Director of Fundraising at<br />

Rennie Grove Hospice Care, says: “Taking part<br />

in our Make Your Will Month event is a great<br />

way to make sure you have made plans for<br />

your own affairs, while supporting vital hospice<br />

care for local people living with a life-limiting<br />

illness. In the last year, gifts that were left to<br />

Rennie Grove Peace in Wills generated enough<br />

income to cover a third of the total cost<br />

of running our services. This support is<br />

absolutely crucial to the charity so this Make<br />

Your Will Month we’re encouraging everybody<br />

to consider whether they could leave a gift in<br />

their Will to support a charity in the future.”<br />

Sue updated her Will through the Rennie<br />

Grove Peace Make Your Will Month scheme<br />

last year. She says: “My husband and I already<br />

had Wills but it’s a long time since we made<br />

them and we knew we wanted to bring them<br />

up to date. Our grandchildren have all been<br />

born in the time since we originally wrote our<br />

Wills. The whole process was so smooth. We<br />

made an appointment with a local solicitor and<br />

went in person to discuss our circumstances<br />

and requirements. The solicitor we worked<br />

with was wonderful – so approachable and<br />

knowledgeable. She didn’t just make simple<br />

changes, she really informed us about our<br />

options and gave us information on lots of<br />

things to consider that we hadn’t previously<br />

thought of. “<br />

LOCAL BUSINESS<br />

Ashford Kitchens<br />

& Interiors 40th<br />

Anniversary<br />

Celebrating their 40th anniversary,<br />

Ashford Kitchens & Interiors reflects on<br />

their remarkable journey, filled with<br />

gratitude for the continued support over<br />

the past four decades.<br />

Founded in 1984, their journey began<br />

with a commitment to serving the local<br />

community from their showroom in Ashford,<br />

Surrey. Driven by a passion for design and<br />

dedication to friendly customer service, they<br />

embarked on transforming the homes of<br />

their valued customers. In 2014, a second<br />

impressive showroom opened in Farnham<br />

Common, Buckinghamshire. They are proud<br />

to see that their family-owned business has<br />

grown and become a renowned name for<br />

quality and first-class service in the South of<br />

England.<br />

At the heart of their success lies their<br />

incredible team, whose passion, creativity,<br />

and commitment have been the driving force<br />

behind every project they undertake. They<br />

extend their heartfelt thanks to each member<br />

of the Ashford Kitchen & Interiors team who<br />

have been part of their family since 1984!<br />

Continuing their commitment to innovation,<br />

they consistently refresh their expansive<br />

showrooms, offering vibrant spaces with<br />

working displays showcasing the latest<br />

appliances and designs. In their showrooms,<br />

discover a world of wonders, from the<br />

convenience of a Quooker instant boiling<br />

water tap with sparkling and chilled water<br />

to the practicality of breakfast pantries,<br />

venting hobs, and steam ovens. Don’t<br />

miss the luxury of integrated worktop wine<br />

chillers, smoothly blending functionality and<br />

elegance. With cutting-edge technology<br />

seamlessly integrated, they create captivating<br />

displays that can enhance your everyday life.<br />

Additionally, they are thrilled to introduce<br />

exciting new kitchen and bedroom displays<br />

at both of their showrooms, further enriching<br />

their offerings. They warmly invite customers<br />

to visit both their showrooms and encourage<br />

them to explore firsthand the latest<br />

designs and solutions to inspire their home<br />

improvement projects.<br />

As they raise a toast to 40 years of Ashford<br />

Kitchens & Interiors, they look forward to<br />

continuing to serve their customers with the<br />

same commitment that has defined them<br />

since day one.<br />

“Since 1984, we’ve strived to make every<br />

interaction straightforward and every project<br />

a pleasure. Throughout our incredible 40-year<br />

journey, our dedication to seamless service<br />

and genuine customer care has been at the<br />

heart of our business. This commitment isn’t<br />

just a business principle—it’s a deeply rooted<br />

part of our family’s beliefs, shaping every<br />

aspect of who we are.” Stephen & Grace<br />

Flower (Co-Owners)<br />

Safe & gentle ear wax<br />

removal at a clinic<br />

near you<br />

Microsuctioning<br />

At Hearwego Clinic we provide instant and effective ear wax removal treatment. Microsuction is the gold<br />

standard method of ear wax removal.<br />

Unlike traditional ear syringing or irrigation, which uses water, microsuction uses gentle suction to remove<br />

ear wax. This is a safe, gentle and effective method of ear wax removal and, in the majority of cases, provides<br />

instant relief and immediately restores full hearing. Our Audiologists are trained in all methods<br />

of ear wax removal, microsuction, ear irrigation (commonly known as ear syringing) and<br />

instrumentation.<br />

What to expect at your appointment<br />

At Hearwego our practitioners will use a microscope to see a detailed view of your<br />

ear canal and examine the potential build-up of ear wax. Ear wax and debris are<br />

removed using a gentle device. Our appointments include an examination of your<br />

ears and removal of ear wax using microsuction, which typically lasts between 10-30<br />

minutes. Depending on the consistency of the wax, we may need to revert to ear<br />

irrigation (commonly known as ear syringing) or instrumentation. In rare cases, a<br />

follow-up visit may be required to remove particularly stubborn ear wax.<br />

COMMUNITY NEWS<br />

Stepping Stones<br />

with Chiltern<br />

Rangers CIC and<br />

The <strong>Beaconsfield</strong><br />

School<br />

Nurturing a profound connection with<br />

nature and learning, Chiltern Rangers<br />

CIC and The <strong>Beaconsfield</strong> School have<br />

formed a dynamic partnership through<br />

the Stepping Stones to Employability<br />

program, igniting a passion for<br />

conservation and learning in students.<br />

Students at The <strong>Beaconsfield</strong> School have<br />

been actively engaging with their local<br />

environment through hands-on activities led<br />

by Chiltern Rangers. From removing invasive<br />

species to monitoring rivers, these young<br />

conservationists have been making a tangible<br />

difference. They’ve cleared laurel from<br />

Walkwood, coppiced hazel at Holtspur Bank<br />

Nature Reserve, carried out chalkstream<br />

monitoring in the River Wye, managed scrub<br />

at Woodoaks Farm, and planted hedgerows<br />

to create vital nature corridors.<br />

Some students have had the opportunity<br />

to delve deeper into conservation through<br />

work experience placements with Chiltern<br />

Rangers. This experience not only exposes<br />

them to various aspects of environmental work<br />

but also instills a sense of responsibility and<br />

pride.<br />

For some students, this partnership offers more<br />

than just a chance to connect with nature; it’s<br />

a lifeline that allows them to rediscover their<br />

potential and re-engage with education in a<br />

meaningful way. The nurturing environment<br />

provided by Chiltern Rangers enables these<br />

students to thrive, unlocking talents and<br />

passions they may not have realised they<br />

possessed.<br />

Archie, a work experience student,<br />

encapsulates the spirit of the program with his<br />

enthusiastic words: “It’s good and really fun.<br />
