News, News, News.. Winners of The Village Trophy

The 67th Doncaster Scouts were presented with the Village trophy this year by Sprotbrough and Cusworth Parish Council. The Council who choose a winner each year, chose the Scouts for all their success in district competitions. It is the Scouts 3rd successive win in the cooking competition.

Attention Carers Having recently nursed my beloved mother to the end. I required carers to assist in her final few days. I was assigned to a new company in Doncater Direct Health UK LTD Chris Whincup (01709) 882053 If you are in a similar situation and require carers I can thoroughly recommend their service. It resorted my faith in humanity, to see young people so dedicated, professional and trained to palliative care.

CHAT ROOM 4 THURSDAY Chat Room 4 Thursday invites anyone in the community to attend at the Methodist Church Hall, Park Drive, on the fourth Thursday afternoon each month between 2.00 and 4.00 p.m. for a social afternoon, including a talk, tea and cakes.

THE NEIL GARDINER MEMORIAL CRICKET SIXES CHARITY EVENT The Neil Gardiner Memorial Cricket Sixes Charity Event was once more a great success. We would like to thank everyone for attending and for their generous donations that helped to raise a brilliant £3972.39 for the Teenage and Young Adult Unit on ward P3 at the Royal Hallamshire Hospital, Sheffield. It was another great day with plenty of sunshine. The victors of the Neil Gardiner Trophy were the ‘Scopie Sloggers’ from the R.A.F. They said they had been trying to win this trophy since the first event in 2004 and were proud to be winners . The team ‘Sprotbrough Six Pack’ were the runners up. This event has proved very popular and was attended by over 1000 people. A great big thanks must go to everyone who helped on the day, especially to Jody Green and Jon French who give up lots of their time to organize this event. Included in this total is £140 donated by the Ivanoe Football teams The Oldies v the Newies who played a match on Sunday 7th August and we thank them very much for this. Also included was £400 raised by Matthew Booth who did a sponsored bike ride. Winners front row Scopie Sloggers Back Row Sprotbrough Six Packs Runners .

Scouts Gala & Road Race

1st Scout, Richard Martin and Janet Graves Sunday 17th July saw the annual Scouts Gala and Road race at New Lane. 210 runners competed in the race which saw Kemp Sapey win over the 6.5km course in a time of 24min 13 seconds. The first lady home was Chloe Craven in a time of 31min 12 Seconds and the first scout was Richard Martin. Despite the showery weather the event raised £4000 towards the scout group funds. During the afternoon the Sprotbrough and Cusworth Parish Council officiated at the opening of the New Lane Play area by Jack(10) and Lucy(8) Roberts. The village trophy donated by the Parish council to the scout group was this year won by the scout section itself for their achievement in winning district events including the cooking competition for the third year in a row.

Dear Reader,

Is an hour a month - something to look forward to, a time to call your own – too By the time you are much to ask? You deserve it! And the benefits reading this the last for much longer. With many salons being Summer holidays will open until late at night, what could be better be over and people will having fed the family, tidied up, got the kids off to bed - than popping down to the salon for be whispering the the last appointment? From personal dreaded word 'Christmas'. Well, don't experience, I can tell you that many of our clients shower at home, put their pyjamas on worry - it will be a and then drive down to the salon so that, when couple of months before I discuss that they get home an hour later, all they have to subject again. do is slip into bed for a deep, rejuvenating For the present I am going to concentrate on us sleep. Bliss! Hollywood style treatment for a women! Having had six weeks summer ‘holiday’ true star! Slip into bed after a late night juggling the kids and our own jobs at work, whilst What more beauty appointment trying to keep on top of household chores, it's could you about time we spent a little time on ourselves want on an we have definitely earned it and some 'me time' is, Autumn I think, not only deserved but also truly needed!!!! evening when the nights are drawing in?

Hot Stone Massage, the perfect way to relax once the kids are back at school.

Once race week is over, many salons will have offers running up to December, so it will be a great time to take the opportunity to try something you have wanted to try for ages but haven't because it has been beyond your normal monthly treatment budget: a relaxing Hot Stone Massage to ease those tired and aching muscles, a course of Facial Lifting to help the stress lines caused by the above-mentioned juggling, Teeth Whitening to make your smile brighter (now the kids are back in school!!!!)… All these and many more will be more affordable.

Beauty Packages are also lovely treats, and buying a package of treatments is usually a little cheaper than paying for them individually. So, if you have been in the sun and your skin feels dehydrated and has lost its healthy glow, a body scrub and massage followed by a deep cleansing treatment with nourishing products to feed the skin would be ideal for your body, and an hour’s facial lifting with a micro current would be the perfect answer for your face.

Beauty Quote of The Month..... Love is much like a wild rose, beautiful and calm, but willing to draw blood in its defence.” To check out the Autumn promotions at Perfect Harmony, visit website: www.perfectharmony.me.uk and also follow them on Facebook to see daily updates of photos and information.

Doncaster Advanced Motorists Overtaking Dear readers, Ask yourself do I really need to overtake? Is the overtake necessary and worthwhile, what’s the point in exposing yourself to unnecessary danger to jump one or two places up a queue of traffic. At best you’ll only arrive at your destination a few seconds earlier! Instead of getting agitated, drop back, (not to much) and enjoy the ride. The bully driver, who speeds up the wrong side of the road-only to cut up other drivers when he forces his way back in to avoid on-coming traffic-is a danger to himself and everyone else. Every overtake requires planning, quick thinking and decisiveness. Ask these questions before you attempt any overtaking manoeuvre. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8.

9.

10.

Is their sufficient clear road ahead to carry out the manoeuvre safely? Is anyone ahead slowing down or turning right? Does your car have enough acceleration to pass safely? Which gear will provide the best acceleration to complete the manoeuvre? Will you get a better overtaking opportunity soon? Is the vehicle in front hiding another vehicle that may block your attempts to pull-in? Beware of slow moving vehicles they can turn quickly. Are there any concealed hazards such as obstructed lay-bys, side turnings, entrances, buildings or gates. Never overtake near a junction, even one that looks clear. The vehicle you’re passing might turn without warning or some one might pull out. When joining a main road, a lot of ordinary drivers only take the time to look right before pulling out. This is the cause of numerous highspeed accidents. Observe around and underneath any vehicle you’re passing to check all is clear in front of it. Often, shadows are a good way to judge whether for example, a large lorry is hiding a Of Sprotbrough motorcycle. Never make risky overtakes. If in doubt stay back.

Overtaking in bad weather is more dangerous as visibility can be seriously reduced by spray and braking distances are significantly increased. Also remember that, just because you can’t see headlights doesn’t mean that there’s no vehicle there. Many motorists forget to put their headlights on except when driving at night. To be continued... If you are interested in the courses that we offer, you’ll be able to find this information on the Institute of Advanced Motorists website at www.iam.org.uk or Tel: 01302 886 276
