Rush Directed by Happy Days alumni Ron Howard comes a film based on the real life events that took place during the 1976 Formula 1 racing championship. The story follows the rivalry between British driver James Hunt and Austrian Niki Lauda. There’s car racing, womanising and cross words thrown around in the on-going competition between the two drivers. Then, after a catastrophic crash at the German Grand Prix in ’76 that almost claimed his life, Lauda returns to face Hunt in the pursuit of the World Championship in Japan. Some familiar faces with Hunt being played by Chris

Property News HMO - WHAT IS IT? House in Multiple Occupation Do you live in, or do you own a House in Multiple Occupation? An HMO can be either: ● A house split into separate bedsits. ● A shared house or shared flat, where people have separate renting agreements. ● A hostel. ● A bed-and-breakfast hotel that isn’t just for holidays. ● Shared accommodation for students. It may not be easy to work out whether you're living in an HMO, so get advice if you're not sure. Below are some basic guidelines that can be used to check if your home is an HMO. ● Three or more unrelated people live there as at least 2 separate households – for example, 3 single people with their own rooms, or 2 couples each sharing a room. ● The people living there share basic amenities – for example, a kitchen and/or bathroom. If you rent a House in Multiple Occupancy, your landlord will have extra responsibilities, and may even require a license. Some of these responsibilities include: ● Proper fire safety measures are in place – there should be smoke detectors in every bedroom and in communal areas, and the kitchen must have a heat detector ● Annual gas safety checks are carried out ● Electrics are checked every 5 years ● The property is not overcrowded ● There are adequate cooking and washing facilities ● Communal areas and shared facilities are clean and in good repair ● There are enough rubbish bins for everyone living in the house. These rules are there to reduce the risk of fire, and to make sure that people living in shared houses or flats have access to decent facilities. Due to the additional requirements and/or license, many agents do not offer HMO’s, so you may need to find a specialist agent if you are wanting to rent one.

Landlord Tip: When looking for an agent to help manage your property, ensure you check all the charges thoroughly before agreeing to a contract. Some agents have hidden charges and fees that are not obvious, but may end up costing you a lot of money.

Tenant Tip: When looking for a place to rent, ensure you know what the agent fees are before you make an application. Some agents have hidden fees, such as credit checking fees, guarantor referencing fees, tenancy renewal fees, and charges to issue a reference when you move out.

The Owl and the Pussycat went to… the wife needed to prove that one of them was domiciled in England at the time the petition was lodged – which she did. The judge deemed that they both were; she because, despite being born in India, she chose to live in England with no intention of returning to India (the move to Singapore was temporary) and he; because his father had acquired a domicile of choice in England before he was born, having had no intention of returning to India. Michelle Cooper, partner and head of Graysons WE’s family department says “We are seeing more and more cases where the issue of jurisdiction is important.

ICONS

The Beatles Perhaps the most famous, commercially successful and critically acclaimed British rock band ever, The Beatles redirected the history of western popular culture and music. The style was rooted in skiffle and rock, but developed into an innovative, sophisticated and genre-busting musical idiom as the group’s songwriting skills, range and musical intelligence grew. Singles hit included She Loves You, Can’t Buy Me Love, and A Hard Day’s Night, but The Beatles’ legacy was assured by a sequence of revolutionary albums. In their early days as a gifted, wisecracking rock-and-roll group, The Beatles revolutionized the sound and style of British popular music with their original and catchy synthesis of rock music, rhythm and blues. They first appeared in the clubs of Liverpool - their home city - and Hamburg. On the way, they lost two early band members - bassist, Stuart Sutcliffe and drummer, Pete Best. They acquired drummer, Ringo Starr, in 1962 to make up the Fab Four of fame and fable. Molded by manager Brian Epstein from 1962, they adopted their signature mop-head haircuts and collarless suit jackets and were signed to the EMI Parlophone lable by prescient music producer, George Martin. Thie debut album Please Please Me, recorded in a single session at the iconic Abbey Road Studios, became their first No. 1 hit. In total, 11 studio albums and 17 singles went on to reach the top spot in the British charts - an astonishing record. Beatlemania went global, when the band toured the USA in spring 1964 and they entered the movie world with their mock-documentary A Hard Day’s Night (1964) and its successors

Help! (1965) and A Magical Mystery Tour (1967). A succession of landmark albums followed. Rubber Soul (1965) featured elements drawn from the contemporary US folk scene and went and from world music, notably in its use of the sitar, while Revolver (1966) further extended their range, from classical to psychedelic rock. The phenomenal concept album Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band (1967) is regularly listed as one of the greatest albums of all time. A creative period of transcendental meditation at a retreat in India led to The White Album (1968, formally called The Beatles). However, it also increased personal tensions within the group, which became focused on John Lennon’s relationship with the artist, Yoko Ono. Two further acclaimed albums followed, Abbey Road (1969) and Let It Be (1970), but in April 1970, Paul McCartney announced he was quitting the band and he filed for formal dissolution at the end of the year. All four members went on to make solo albums and McCartney developed a hugely successful post-Beatles career. In the years that followed the band’s dissolution, two tragic events happened. Lennon was killed in 1980 in New York City and George Harrison Died of cancer in 2001. Founded January 1960 Disbanded 1970 Members: George Harrision 1943-2001 John Lennon 1940-1980 Paul McCartney 1942-Present Ringo Starr (born Richard Starkey) 1940-Present

25 new Ambassadors all set for Chesterfield Chesterfield has recruited 25 more willing volunteers to sing the praises of the town, bringing the total of ‘ambassadors’ to 125. The volunteers join the town’s Ambassador Scheme ahead of the influx of tourists over the summer. The new ambassadors include frontline staff from the town’s businesses, including restaurants, museums, banks and Chesterfield Borough council employees. They join local residents, traffic wardens and sales assistants to name but a few, who have previously signed up to the voluntary, unpaid scheme. Chesterfield Ambassadors is the brainchild of the town’s marketing campaign Destination Chesterfield, and is designed to ensure that all visitors to

the town have a great time here and leave with a positive impression. Dominic Stevens, Destination Chesterfield Manager explained: “We have marketed Chesterfield a as place to live, work and invest in during the last two years. Many businesses and people have chosen to locate here and this, coupled with an 11% increase in tourism, ensures that our Ambassadors play a vital role in helping market the town positively. The Ambassadors Scheme is about ensuring all visitors – whether tourists or here on business - leave with a positive opinion of Chesterfield and are excited, like we are, of our plans for the future.” The latest ambassadors recently

underwent training to ensure they were all equipped with the latest news, facts and figures about the town – from how many tiles are on the iconic church spire to information about the town’s regeneration plans alongside the importance of good customer service. Ambassadors then receive regular updates about the town on events, developments and local news. The two-hour training workshop took place at the Town Hall and was developed with Chesterfield Champion, Evolution Training. If you’re interested in becoming an ambassador, visit www.chesterfield.co.uk to find out more.

There is great value in our Night Time Economy As a small business owner for over 25 years in Chesterfield, as well as a member of the Federation of Small Business, I feel positive about our town’s future. The housing market is picking up and our town centre is surviving these difficult times. Best of all though, the sun has been shining, giving us the opportunity to see just how well managed and pretty our town is. It is not only the market stall holders that benefit from the warmer weather, it is also a great opportunity for the town’s night time economy as more people venture out to socialise, whether it’s for a drink, a meal, a show or clubbing. Unfortunately this is against the backdrop of frequent national headlines warning of the British Binge Drinking Culture’, a town’s evening economy can be under appreciated, even feared. However, did you know that our town is one of the safest in the UK to socialise in? This is because here in Chesterfield the responsible bar and club owners, as part of their licensing objectives, work closely with the authorities to ensure that we have a vibrant and safe night time economy. Often problems stem from outside forces, such as cheaply sold alcohol leading to ‘pre-loading’. This is an official term which refers to consuming

substantial quantities of alcohol in an unregulated environment. Recent information suggests that this could be a contributing factor to an increase of incidents in alcohol related crime in the suburbs and the wider community. Any negative perception of night time socialising within our town centre should be seen as historical, we must not let any misconceptions overshadow the significant contribution our well managed and properly regulated night-time economy makes to Chesterfield town centre. Chesterfield’s privately run bars, restaurants and clubs employ hundreds of local people. These businesses also invest millions of pounds in the development and maintenance of quality, safe venues in Chesterfield. In turn, they support many businesses and services in the local economy such as public transport, taxi companies, clothes shops and hair and beauty salons and many other small local retail businesses. Add this to the list of local plumbers, builders and electricians we all use and you have a complex system of cross-trade synergy. This symbiotic relationship then allows the profit generated by these small businesses to be pumped back into the local

economy, driving growth in our area rather than being taken by multi-national companies. Chesterfield now has a valuable social scene with a wide and varied selection of privately run bars, Real Ale pubs, clubs, gastro pubs, wine bars, cocktail bars and restaurants. We deliver so much more than just a place to have a drink. There are many types and styles of cuisine on offer, as well as exciting choices of live music and DJs within varied and different surroundings, ranging from the sumptuous elegance of a cocktail bar to the traditional cosiness of a real ale pub. There truly is something for everyone in our lovely little town of Chesterfield. Against the odds we have one of the safest and buoyant towns in the UK with a great and exciting night life. Well done everyone. Enjoy it!!
