FIRM DOES LUNCH LAUNCH

THE

Spotlight On Our Firm Member‌ Steve and Sharon started using Forever Living products for their daughter who had eczema when she was a baby. They were so impressed with the difference it made compared with the conventional prescription alternatives that they set up their own home based business supplying the products to local people. Having developed their business successfully over the last 13 years, they now offer to recruit and train people to do the same. Forever Living Products offer a range of natural Aloe Vera and beehive based health, beauty and nutrition products. Founded in 1978 and operating in the UK since 1993, they are the world’s largest grower, manufacturer and distributor of such products. The range includes skin care, personal care, Aloe Vera nutritional drinks, supplements, weight management, sports performance and recovery, animal care, aroma spa and even cosmetics infused with Aloe. Products are made with 100% inner leaf Aloe Vera gel and aim to help you look and feel your best. These are top quality products that have Aloe, not water, as the number one ingredient and so Forever are proud to offer a 60 day complete satisfaction money back guarantee on all products. Forever Living is a family run company, with family values, that has been built from its American roots and has expanded across the world, trading in over 155 countries. The products are available from a network of local suppliers and online. As well as providing you with these lovely products, Forever can offer you a full or part time recruitment opportunity,

not only in the local Derbyshire area but globally too. This would benefit people who want to run their own business starting with a few hours per week at a time to suit. This could be perfect for a busy Mum or Dad juggling childcare with work or for anyone looking to develop an extra income stream without compromising their present family or job commitments. There are no set up or on-going fees or geographical limitations like a traditional franchise. Forever (which has Investor in People gold and champion status) offers superb training, support and of course local back up from Steve and Sharon. It is possible to earn from a few hundred to many thousands per month once the business is established and this continues to grow and become a secure royalty style income that is willable too. Distributors can make their sales and grow their business network however they feel works best for them, such as direct selling, Facebook and Twitter, home parties, exhibitions or simply by word of mouth and referrals. If Forever Living is of interest to you, feel free to contact Steve or Sharon. They are happy to talk through the opportunities with you and let you make up your own mind. They have seen the benefits of both the products and working with Forever Living and are eager to help other people get started in this exciting growing industry.

JUDGE JANE...

Christmas is coming and with it the pressure to eat, drink and be merry. I say pressure because this year it will be particularly hard to feel merry for many people especially those hit hard by the rising cost of living. The pressures experienced by individuals and families vary widely but, if I was to generalise I would say most ordinary people are making “adjustments” to their lifestyles. The difference will be to what extent, how and why? I have a friend who confided in me recently that she and her husband are “struggling” which for them means eating out twice a month rather than weekly. I find this sort of conversation difficult at the best of times as these friends are very wealthy by any standards so to avoid causing offence I find myself exploring the topic of what we mean by “struggling” on the off chance I could be misunderstanding her. It is my friends view that; both she and her husband have worked hard to achieve a certain lifestyle and being forced to adapt to socialising less often or to visit less expensive eateries is to admit defeat. It is particularly strange to me they hold these views as we were at primary school together and grew up in fairly close proximity and I know both are from relatively poor backgrounds. The one single benefit both my friends enjoyed which was not available to their parents or their children was a grant aided University education. Both graduated to careers in finance at a

time when that was a growth industry. They took advantage of consistently high salaries, annual bonus payments and contacts in the right places to expand their wealth. The economic slump has meant these benefits are no longer as regular or predictable and investment is risky so they feel insecure and vulnerable. At a certain point in the discussion my friend crossed a boundary with me when she said she considered throwing in the job to live a life on benefits, with no responsibility except a weekly trip to a food bank. I’m shocked but not surprised this is her view as we are bombarded daily with this false set of messages from TV, radio and other news media. It was the Nazi propagandist Joseph Goebbels who said that “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.” My former friend is not persuaded by the truth even when she sees it in writing. She remains of the view Job Seekers Allowance would be sufficient to maintain her living standards because that is what is

JJane implied in all the media reports about those dependent on state support. In another part of my life I have friends who also work very hard but, have insecure jobs and/or earn small wages despite having trained for a career. I rarely hear them complain other than to express their frustration at being criticised or misrepresented in the media when they strike for better pay and conditions because their wages are so low they are at times unable even to afford to travel to work. Cycling across the city to work is only possible if you can afford a bicycle! This group of friends interpret the word “struggle” to mean having no money to pay for a safe, warm home with regular meals. Yet, it is this group of friends who will be out and about at Christmas donating their time, skills and friendship to those they consider “less fortunate”.

If you have a story to tell about how your life is being impacted by the cuts, corporate greed and/or mismanagement of public/ private services you can email me with them at jjjustmyopinion@gmail.com

It’s just my opinion!

Spotlight on Usborne… Every parent wants to give their child(ren) the best start in life! Learning to read and write is an important part of children’s development. Shocking figures show that 1 in 5 children do not own a book of their own(http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/education -16031370 and yet Children with their own books were more likely to be above average readers and do better at school, the study of 18,000 children suggested. The best way to encourage reading is for children to have access to good quality books on a regular basis. Local libraries are a great resource for discovering new authors and many have events they will put on throughout the year. Usborne Books are celebrating their 40th birthday this year, they won children’s publisher of the year 2012 and are well known for their wide range of superb books catering for children from 0 – 16. As your local Independent Usborne Organiser I can advise and

recommend good books, I can bring some samples along for you to look at before you order, there is even the possibility of getting free books! Just offer to host a party, invite your friends round, show them the catalogue and I’ll do the rest! If you are a teacher or a member of the PTA, or involved in any way in a school then ask me about our special schools pack. We can offer to run a sponsored event to raise money for your school to invest in books and then we top that order up with more free books, we can also come and do a book fair. There is also special discount available for libraries and sure start centres. Contact me for more Information at sarahsbookshop@yahoo.co.uk We are also always looking for people to join our team, working together to get good quality books to all children! It’s a low cost, no risk business opportunity, with full mentor support, contact me for more information.Lets get our children excited

My 5 top tips to encourage reading in children; 1. Read aloud to them regularly, make funny voices and bring the story alive 2. Be a good role model, let your children see you read! 3. Start with their passions, don’t force them to read about things that don’t interest them, many boys prefer fact to fiction! 4. Point out signs and words when out and about – you will be surprised at just how young a child will recognise their favourite shop! 5. Talk about the books you have read together, point out similarities between everyday events and what you have read, tell them what you enjoyed most.

Thanks

TINGDENE DEVELOPER OF THE YEAR 2007

Visit our web site - www.chesterfield1st.co.uk

Becky’s Movie Previews Now we’re getting towards the end of the year, we will start to see some contenders for the Oscars. There are some great films to see at the cinema this month so let’s take a look.

Coming Soon…

The Family Robert De Niro just can’t stay away from films surrounding the Mafia, gangsters and organised crime. Well, if it isn’t broke… as the saying goes. This time it’s a comedy crime film with De Niro as a former mafia boss who after making a mistake and finding out there’s a hit on him and his family, decides to turn

informant on his boss. Then he and his family are put into witness protection. They find themselves in France with FBI agent Stansfield (Tommy Lee Jones) keeping supervision. Although it seems as the behaviour the family are accustomed to, isn’t easy to let go. Bribery, extortion, explosions and general bad behaviour are rife and soon they catch the attention of those who still hold a grudge. It isn’t long before hitmen are coming to town for a visit. De Niro is supported by Michelle Pfeiffer (Hairspray, Dark Shadows) as his wife and Glee’s Diana Agron as his daughter. Release Date: 22.11.13

Carrie

One of the most famous high school prom scenes is coming back to our screens. Originally released in 1976, we get to see again the haunting tale of a lonely girl who gets pushed too far when a prank is pulled on her at the high school prom involving pig’s blood. With this being the remake there won’t be any surprises plot-wise, but with the advancement in special effects we should be in

14

for a visual treat. Heading the cast as the girl with telekinesis is Chloe Grace Moretz (Kick-Ass, Hugo) and Julianne Moore (Evolution, Hannibal) as Carrie’s religion-obsessed mother.

Saving Mr Banks

Everyone knows Mary Poppins. Whether you hate it or can’t wait for it to be shown every Christmas, you know the story of the magical nanny who likes to sing a song or two. But what everyone may not know is that the film was almost never made in the first place. The person who wrote the book, P.L Travers was resistant to her beloved characters to be turned into a farce. For 2 weeks in 1961, Travers reluctantly spent with Walt Disney in LA as he tried to win her over. She was played songs by The Sherman Brothers, including a spoonful of sugar and let’s go fly a kite. She was an Australian-born English author and he was the creator of the ‘happiest place on earth’. They couldn’t be more

Call us on 01246 828074 / 828378

different from each other. Then the real story behind Mary Poppins is discovered with very personal ties to Travers that brings reason and purpose behind her reluctance. Walt Disney is played by Tom Hanks (Forrest Gump, Cast Away) and Emma Thompson (Sense and Sensibility, Love, Actually) is P.L Travers. The pair a superb together and bring their real life counterparts to life as though we are back in the 60’s when it all began. In reality, Travers disliked the film version so much she never allowed any more Mary Poppins books to be made into film. But seeing it all played out may give audiences a reason behind her decisions. Release Date: 29.11.13

Philomena

Chesterfield 1st

Coming from the director of The Queen (Stephen Frears) we have a tale of separation and heartache starring the unlikely pairing of Judi Dench and Steve Coogan. Coogan (Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa) plays Martin Sixsmith, a former journalist turned government advisor who finds himself without a job. He then hears of a woman with a rather interesting story to tell. Although resistant at first, he decides to write a human interest story about her. Her name is Philomena played by Dench (Skyfall, Mrs Brown) and when she was young she was forced to give up her child for adoption as she had him out of wedlock and she was a Catholic in Ireland. After her son’s 50th

November 2013

birthday she decides she would like to try and find him at long last. And so they both go on the journey together to discover whatever happened to her son. Although Philomena may struggle with what she may discover. It may seem like a bit of an unusual pairing, Alan Partridge and M from Bond, but it seems to work for the story. A heart warming tale that will be well worth a look. Release Date: 01.11.13

Property News Are Property Prices Rising? There’s a lot of talk at the moment about property prices being at their highest level for a number of years, but is this a true reflection of our local area? The Office For National Statistics have reported an increase of 3.8% across England compared to August 2012, but these figures are influenced by the London market, which has risen by 8.7% over the last 12 months. If we break down the figures to show the local areas, the story is quite different. In Derbyshire there are 2 extremes with Chesterfield showing a 7.7% increase, but Derbyshire Dales showing a 7.8% decrease. In South Yorkshire Rotherham increased by 4.8%, whereas Sheffield saw a 7.3% decrease. In Nottinghamshire Newark & Sherwood witnessed a large increase of 10.8%, but Ashfield District saw prices drop by 2.9% As you can see the generalisation of the property market increasing throughout the country gives a false impression of what is actually happening on the doorstep Will Prices Rise Further?

Landlord Tip: When using an agent to manage your property, make sure you check the on-line marketing descriptions and pictures, to ensure they meet your expectations. A more detailed description and good pictures will attract more interest than poor quality photo’s and a few lines of text.

Tenant Tip: When looking for a place to rent, think about the detail the agent or landlord has put into the marketing description. If someone puts the effort and attention to detail into their marketing, they are more likely to put effort and attention to detail in regards to other aspects of your tenancy.

Experts are forecasting that house prices will rise by 6.6% during the next 12 months, but are saying that it will then start to level off again, and the risk of another property bubble is minimal. Finances? The Bank Of England has suggested recently that the base rate will stay at 0.5% for the whole of 2014, which is good news for mortgage repayments. This combined with the Governments push on affordable housing may help first-time buyers to get their feet on the ladder. We will just have to wait and see.

Legal 500 recommendation for family law experts A recommendation in the Legal 500 is quite an accolade, and one that not many family solicitors in South Yorkshire have been afforded. Graysons WE, however, is celebrating again this year; delighted to have been recommended as a leading firm in 2013, following several years’ endorsement by the guide. The Legal 500 is widely known as the definitive guide to the legal profession and, in its own words, “recognises excellence in the regional market” setting a “benchmark for excellence across the UK legal market”. Recognising “the best of the best”, and based “purely on merit”, the recommendation is testimony to the quality of expertise and service from Graysons WE’s family department. The family team at Graysons WE is highly experienced and talented and is one of the largest such teams in the area with expertise to suit all individuals. It offers outstanding client care and innovative new services such as fixed fee divorce packages and a specialist service for busy professionals. A wide range of services are available which include traditional family law solutions as well as collaborative law and round table meetings. With offices in Sheffield and

November Gardening

November is a relatively quiet month mainly due to poor weather conditions and shorter daylight hours. Plant your tulip bulbs this month, some Tulips persist year to year, some perform less well and are treated as bedding, and replaced every year. Now is also the last chance to plant out winter bedding. You could try wallflowers, forget-me-nots, Bellis, Primula, Viola (winter pansies) and other spring bedding plants, planting them into well- prepared ground, or pots of suitable compost. Ornamental grasses and bamboos can be cut back and tidied up at this time of year. It is still a good time to lift and divide overgrown clumps of herbaceous perennials. Lift and store dahlias, cannas and tuberous bedding begonias that have been hit by the first frosts. Large tubs that are at risk of cracking in the frost should be covered with bubble wrap, hessian or fleece, to insulate them over the winter

also raise containers onto feet or bricks to avoid them sitting in the wet as drainage is essential at this time of the year. Apply an autumn mulch to protect plants that are borderline hardy such as Agapanthus, Red hot pokers and Cape fuchsias, the plants own leaves, of the red hot pokers can be tied up and used as protection for the crown. Have a good clean up removing leaves and debris between plants as this will provide a good place for slugs and snails. Fill in gaps in flower borders with small, pot-grown herbaceous perennials and alpines, They aren’t expensive at this time of year and if planted now will make an impact in spring Collect and dispose of all fallen rose leaves, especially those that are diseased and infected with a fungus such as Black spot. DO NOT place rose leaves on the compost heap. Bin them or burn them! Prune tall roses by one third to avoid wind rock damage. As long as the ground is not to waterlogged or frozen you can plant herbaceous perennials, shrubs, hedging, deciduous trees roses and fruit trees. Bonfire night is a good time to burn your unwanted cuttings and leaves, Make sure there aren't any

hedgehogs, or other animals in amongst your debris. If you would like to encourage birds into your garden throughout the winter months you need to create a bird friendly environment. Clean bird baths, or provide a clean source of water if there is a frost, put out bird food and fat balls. And finally sit back relax and plan your next years garden and changes doing as much research as possible to get it right first time. If you need any advise or quality plants and shrubs come and visit us at Doncaster road , langold, S819QL or give me a call on 07979377570 always happy to help. www.johnsplants.com
