Local teen Emma Snow writes about various topics and events each month in the Grapevine. “A voice for the young people in our Community”. Where do you get your news from? In this day and

age, social media has become a huge influence on our lives. Not just for sharing information with our online friends and acquaintances, but it is now becoming the way that we consume our news. An event happens. Where do you first hear about it? Often social media. The big day. The day we found out that the UK had left the European Union. How did I find out the result? I woke up to a Snapchat from a friend. I then logged on to Twitter, to see not only comments of outrage but also celebration. Where did I go to next? The BBC news app on my phone. My Mum on the other hand, went straight to the news app on her iPad. Again, technology played an important part for us both. It was only later in the morning that my family put the BBC news channel on TV to watch the events unfold. If I had stuck to social media, the news and associated comments would have flown straight to my phone and I could have been updated on the go. And… I wouldn’t have been late to college! The way we consume our news is changing rapidly. In the 1960s, people would have switched on their television (if they had one) or radio to see what was happening in the world, or walked down to the local shop in the morning to buy a newspaper. Already, we


are seeing newspapers become less popular. Stereotypically the older generation are the ones who are carrying on the traditional means of consuming news. Only last month, we saw the last two journalists working in Fleet Street leave the former home of national papers. For decades, Fleet Street was synonymous with the nation’s biggest newspapers. The first British daily newspaper, the Daily Courant, was published on the famous street in 1702. Could this be the beginning of the death of our newspapers? Somewhat worrying for a budding journalist like me is whether there will be any need for journalists to write in newspapers and appear on our news channels? The answer; yes. We will still need journalists, but their roles will just adapt with technology and the way we consume our news. Today, social media is becoming one of the main sources of news online, with more than 2.4 billion internet users. Nearly 65% of these users knew about a breaking news story through social media, as opposed to traditional media. Facebook has 38% of users regularly clicking on news links shared through the social media site. The news feed app Buzzfeed, has built a business based on the popular demand for consuming our news via social media. The BBC, introduced their news app in 2010 which has had more than 40 million downloads across 200 countries. It’s very convenient that technology allows breaking news stories to go straight to your mobile phone. Sharing news through social media has become so successful because it allows users to actively comment and voice an opinion, debating current affairs with online friends.

Please mention Grapevine when responding to advertisements.

Is getting our news from social media a positive development? Before the days of the internet connected world, our views would have been shaped by perhaps one specific newspaper or news channel. Today, things have changed. We can now access a multitude of different media sources as well as the thoughts and opinions of a wide circle of friends and acquaintances, as well as total strangers. By consuming our news online or through an app, we are also able to instantly read other sources to check the validity of what we are consuming, but we can also research further into desired topics to broaden our horizons, But which sources are reliable? The BBC is usually regarded as highly prestigious, a platform often used to obtain accurate information. Is getting our news from social media that accurate? On social media, news stories can become slightly distorted. Have you ever read the comments underneath a news story on Facebook and realised that a number of users have misinterpreted events? These comments are made by the general public like you and I, who undoubtedly have different backgrounds and views. This is why there will always be a need for trained journalists, the majority of who will make sure the news you consume is accurate. By all means, enjoy interacting with other users on the latest news stories, but be careful what you believe. Article by Emma Snow. You can now read more from me on my new blog:

Reliable Local Handymen Retired police officers in NG9 are pioneers in an ambitious national network of highly vetted handymen launched by ’Trust in Blue’. Helping to combat the ongoing problem of cowboy builders and dodgy tradespeople, local retired police officers with a passion for home maintenance are taking up tools to provide peace of mind to the residents and businesses of Stapleford, Bramcote and Beeston. Typically police officers retire after 30 years service and a huge number are still eager to continue playing an active and productive role in their communities. All of the handymen prove themselves capable and experienced in indoor and outdoor home maintenance works before joining the network and carry recent Enhanced CRB (Criminal Record) Checks. Managing Director, Nick Orde-Powlett, hopes that the company’s rigorous selection process will bring security and peace of mind to people in Nottinghamshire: “Our vetting process is second to none. All of our handymen are friendly retired police officers with many years working in the community under their belt – they understand peoples’ concerns and fears better than anyone else and they genuinely care.“Handyman Chris states: “Having been a police officer for 30 years and being passionate about serving the community, what better way in retirement of continuing to serve the community by indulging my passion for DIY and utilising my skills to assist local people." More information can be found on the website and bookings can be made either by calling freephone 0800 255 0 255 or emailing

STAPLEFORD ICE HOCKEY CHAMP CELEBRATES SUCCESSFUL SEASON A YOUNG ICE HOCKEY PLAYER from Stapleford is celebrating the end of a successful season after competing in the British Women’s Ice Hockey Friendship Tournament. 16 year old Jemma Wallis regularly trains at Bramcote Leisure centre as part of Broxtowe Borough Council’s ‘Elite Athletes’ scheme which supports talented athletes by offering free access to Council Leisure Facilities so they can train, to ensure their fitness is at a high standard to enhance their performance. Jemma played in the tournament which was held in June for both the Sheffield Shadows under 16’s and Senior Women’s Elite team. Her love of Ice Hockey started at a young age when she attended her first Nottingham Panthers game at just two weeks old. Jemma says: “Go for it! It's the best sport I could have picked, many lifelong friends have been made on the way and I can't wait to keep progressing, anyone can do it, give it a try.” Jemma is currently training with the under 18s GB squad in the hope to qualify in September.

Jemma in action

The Elite Athletes Free Use Scheme enables talented athletes who are competing at a national standard, the opportunity to access free facilities in Broxtowe. The scheme enables athletes to have free access to Borough owned swimming pools, racket courts and fitness suites for 12 months. The scheme aims to support athletes whilst they train to reduce the financial burden of training costs. Athletes who compete in any Sport England recognised sport are eligible to apply to the scheme. Broxtowe Borough Council's sports development team, Broxtowe Sport, work with a variety of different partners including residents, sports people, coaches, volunteers and clubs to improve the quality and range of sports provision in Broxtowe Borough.

In today's competitive mortgage market, many borrowers choose to switch their mortgage every few years in order to take advantage of the new rates on offer. Those that remain on the same deal for the full term of their loan could lose out on a range of potential benefits, not least the opportunity to reduce the total amount paid back, which could be a significant amount in some cases. In simple terms, remortgaging involves switching your current mortgage to a new deal, arranged either with your existing lender or with a new lender. If you're paying your lender's Standard Variable Rate (SVR), it's likely that you are able to secure a better rate on other available products. This could allow you to save money on your monthly repayments, or to repay your mortgage sooner.

Fraudsters selling non-existent drones

Online shopping websites are being utilised by fraudsters to advertise drones of various specifications for competitive prices which do not exist. Drones are personal flying devices that often carry cameras and can be navigated remotely by smart phones or controllers. Fraudsters are capitalising on their recent popularity and advertising nonexistent drones lower than the recommended retail price to tempt buyers. After victims agree to purchase the drone, the fraudsters request payment to be paid via bank transfer saying that it will quicken the delivery process. After transferring the money the buyers never receive the drone and the fraudster blocks the victim to prevent further conversation. How to protect yourself Check the validity of the post. Avoid paying by bank transfer and instead use an online payment option such as PayPal, which helps to protect you. Check feedback online by searching the associated phone numbers or email addresses of the seller. Feedback will give you useful information about recent transactions other buyers have made. If the item is below market value consider whether this is an opportunity too good to be true. Sign up for free to Action Fraud Alert to receive direct, verified, accurate information about scams and fraud in your area by email, recorded voice and text message. To report a fraud and receive a police crime reference number, call Action Fraud on 0300 123 2040 or use our online fraud reporting tool.

Fake holding accounts target car buyers online

Shoppers in the market for a new car are being warned to keep an eye out for fraudulent emails when looking to buy vehicles online. Victims have received emails claiming to be from ‘Amazon Payments’ or ‘Amazon Flexible Payment Services’ after agreeing to buy. These claim to be bank accounts that hold the buyer’s money for one week before releasing it to the seller. Fake holding accounts The emails are designed to get victims of the scam to pay upfront before visiting the seller to collect the vehicle, claiming they have a one-week cooling off period to reclaim the payment if they change their mind. This gives victims the false sense of security that their money is being looked after by a trustworthy third party. In reality, Amazon do not provide ‘escrow’ accounts to look after payments; they have been set up by the fraudsters to trick the buyer into handing money over without having to show them the vehicle they think they’re buying. Protection advice When making a big purchase online such as a new car, always meet the seller face to face first and ask to see the vehicle before transferring any money.If you receive a suspicious email asking for payment, check for spelling or grammar errors and who sent the email. If in doubt, check feedback online by searching the associated phone numbers or email addresses of the seller. If you suspect it may be from fraudsters, report it to Action Fraud.False adverts often offer cars or vehicles for sale well below market value to entice potential victims; always be cautious if it looks too good to be true. Sign up for free to Action Fraud Alert to receive direct, verified, accurate information about scams and fraud in your area by email, recorded voice and text message. To report a fraud and receive a police crime reference number, call Action Fraud on 0300 123 2040 or use our online fraud reporting tool. 50

MORE LIFE SAVING DEFIBRILLATORS INSTALLED ACROSS BROXTOWE NEW defibrillators have been installed in Broxtowe Borough thanks to a partnership between Broxtowe Borough Council and its contractors. New lifesaving equipment has now been installed in Brinsley, Cossall, Toton, Stapleford and Bramcote. The Council’s contractors United Living, Vinshire Plumbing and Heating and Ian Williams, have worked with the East Midlands Ambulance Service and Town and Parish Councils to identify areas within the Borough where Public Access Defibrillators (PADS) could be installed, agreeing to sponsor the project by providing at least 8 defibrillators throughout the Borough.

provides 24 hour access to vital lifesaving equipment. The defibrillator delivers an electric shock to the heart in an attempt to re-stabilise the rhythm following a cardiac arrest. In the event of an emergency, the person who called 999 for an ambulance would be given the code to the cabinet and have immediate access to the device. The defibrillators will be housed in secure metal cabinets located on the exterior walls of public buildings within the community such as village halls, disused telephone boxes, public houses etc. For more information, please contact Broxtowe Borough Council on 0115 917 3659 or visit

Defibrillators can be found in the following locations: Cossall (former telephone box) Brinsley Parish Hall The Magpie Pub, Toton The West End Club, Stapleford Memorial Hall, Bramcote Additional defibrillators are due to be installed over the coming months at Eastwood Town Council Offices/Post Office, in Greasley and Bramcote.

Book Review by Clare Lyons

The Five Love Languages by Gary Chapman This is a self-help book for relationships, it focuses on marriage but is relevant to all interpersonal relationships. It’s written by an evangelical Christian, so be aware of lots of religious references - however it’s a really interesting read. The author believes that people ‘speak’ to each other in different ways to express love, working as a counsellor he has developed 5 languages of love that people may use. The book is essentially a way to understand how you show love to others, and perhaps just as importantly—how you can be shown love—if you don’t speak the right language your love may not be being received as you intended and vice versa. If you are in a relationship, would like to be or work with people it is well worth a look. Unexpectedly I have started changing how I express myself to lots of people in my life—and it seems to be working!! If you enjoy the book, there are also the 5 Love Languages of Children and Teenagers.

Children’s Choice Mr Mustachio byYasmin Finch & Abigal Tompkins We are always attracted to unusual book covers, and although we’re not supposed to judge a book by them, everyone does! This one certainly caught our eye, and the quirky illustrations are a great feature of the book. Mr Mustachio has the most extraordinary moustache, but a quick go on the roundabout has shocking consequences for him. It’s a silly story on the surface, but is also a lovely account of people trying to help each other. It inspired a long conversation about what we might use for a fake moustache and even alot of great drawings the next morning—the sign of a great story as it continued to be on the kids minds.

Recipes from Planet Barbecue BARBECUE FOOTBALL CHICKEN An excellent recipe for cold or cloudy days. Having a few friends round and the weather's not to good, perhaps they want to watch the football and perhaps you do too! This recipe requires little attention and is easy to barbecue while you watch the match. Purchase enough chicken to allow 3 pieces each, try a mixture of chicken drumsticks and thighs. METHOD With a sharp knife carefully cut or slice the chicken part way through, this will allow the flavours to penetrate the meat during cooking. Make a large boat with 2 layers of silver foil Pour the sauce into the boat and add the garlic. Toss the chicken in the mixture to coat, sprinkle with the parsley and leave to marinate for an hour or more (overnight is best). Prepare and light the barbecue to cook indirectly (there is no need for a drip tray).

barbecue on a tray. Place on the barbecue (indirect method) and close the lid. leave for 45 minutes, keeping one eye on the barbecue and one eye on the match. At half time open the lid, turn the chicken pieces with tongs and adjust the boat to ensure even cooking. At the final whistle, carefully remove the chicken from the barbecue onto the tray. Serve with oven chips and French or garlic bread TO BUY: Chicken drumsticks and thighs Jar of black bean sauce Fresh garlic Parsley Oven chips Butt rubb barbecue seasoning Tip: If you wish to make it a little hotter, add curry powder to the mixture before cooking. Can be chargrilled over hot coals to finish

5 minutes before kick off Season the chicken and carry to the - fabulous website and place to buy!

GREEN RESIDENTS URGED TO RECYCLE MORE NATIONAL RECYCLE WEEK 2016 and Broxtowe Borough Council is thanking residents for all the great recycling that’s being done as well as encouraging them to recycle more day to day items. Residents can recycle plastic drinks bottles, food and drink cans, cardboard boxes and newspapers in the green-lidded recycling bin but ‘The Unusual Suspects’ such as aerosol cans, toothpaste boxes and toilet roll tubes; are often missed. There are lots of places around the home that ‘The Unusual Suspects’ can be found – can you hunt them down? What’s hiding in the bathroom or bedroom? Paper and cardboard items such as toothpaste boxes and tissue boxes are lurking. If everyone in the UK recycled one toothpaste box, it would save enough energy to run a fridge in over 2,000 homes for a year. 62

Keep an eye out for aluminium deodorant and air freshener aerosol cans. If everyone in the UK recycled one aluminium deodorant aerosol can, enough energy could be saved to vacuum over 480,000 homes for a year. Or, if everyone in the UK recycled one air freshener aerosol can, enough energy could be saved to run a fridge for over 91,000 homes for a year! Taking a shower? The unusual suspect might be in there with you. Plastic shampoo, shower gel and moisturiser bottles can be recycled too. In the kitchen the unusual suspects help to keep things clean - washing up liquid bottles, soap dispensers, bleach bottles and spray cleaners can all be recycled. Just remember, it’s best to remove the trigger spray and pump dispenser tops, as these aren’t currently recycled.

Chair of the Environment and Community Safety Committee, Councillor Mia Kee said: “Recycling is already making a big difference thanks to the dedication of Broxtowe residents. Recycling is important, as it saves energy which helps the environment, so it’s great to keep up the good work! Recycle Week is an ideal time for Borough residents to really take a fresh look at their recycling habits, and to see if there are any opportunities to recycle even more items. There are lots of items that can be recycled, but some are lesser known or more ‘unusual’ than others and, these are what we are trying to raise awareness of.”

before being sent to manufacturers who make it into new products. This saves resources, helps the environment, reduces energy use and supports a thriving recycling economy. To find out more about Recycling, visit of contact 0115 917 7777 or email

There are many great benefits to recycling, as many materials can be recycled over and over again with no loss of quality. For example, in Broxtowe your recycling is taken to the Mansfield MRF (Material Recycling Facility), where the materials are sorted and separated into different types of materials To advertise call 07854 990608 or visit our website


IN THE COMMUNITY BROXTOWE TO WELCOME MARKS AND SPENCERS IN CHILWELL A MARKS & SPENCERS store will open in Broxtowe Borough in a prominent new position at Chilwell’s popular retail park.

The new store will also create new jobs for our local residents. We expect to be leading the way in attracting and retaining jobs and business. This vote of confidence in our Borough is very welcome” said Councillor Mel Crow, Deputy Leader of the Council.

Jyoti Jadav has been settling in her to her new role and is keen to hear from landlords who have properties available in Awsworth, Beeston, Bramcote, Brinsley, Cossall, Eastwood, Kimberley, Nuthall, Stapleford and Watnall. Jyoti’s appointment is the Council’s first step towards developing a Social Lettings Agency which will help meet the demand for good quality rented accommodation in the Borough by developing good working relationships with private landlords in the area. “I’m excited to be working with local landlords to increase the options available to people in housing need. I hope to be working with responsible landlords in the Borough who share our aspiration for stable, affordable tenancies in quality properties” said Jyoti. The Council have worked in partnership with landlords in the private sector for a number of years and the Agency will further develop these links by offering private landlords a free health and safety inspection of their property, a Deposit Guarantee Scheme and a tenant finder service or a full property management service.

STAPLEFORD COMMUNITY GROUP EVENT- a huge success! The event was part of the local Super Kitchen Network which uses donated food which would otherwise be destroyed and end up in landfill sites. We would also like to thank Dig-In Community Allotment and Bramcote Farm Shop who donated Food for the meals. Of course none of this would have been possible if it wasn’t for the excellent work of the brilliant Pulp Friction CIC and of course the Volunteers from Stapleford who came to help too. We were joined by Miss Teen Galaxy Nottingham 2016/17 Emily Redfern, who said:-“Today I’ve made an appearance at The Super Kitchen which is hosted by Stapleford Community Group. I’ve helped to prep the food, welcomed the community in, served the food out to the guests and most importantly cleared up.I feel blessed to be part of such an amazing community who gather together even on the bank holiday weekend.During this event I was able to share my pageant knowledge to both the younger generation and old generation, in which both seemed intrigued in what pageant girls get up to daily.” United Kingdom Galaxy Pageants Pageant Girl – UK Pageant Organisers Stapleford Community Group. Stapleford Community Group are now going to look into organising these sessions on a more regular basic as there is such a need for this kind of event. It was great to see so many people not only enjoying a nice meal but also chatting together and making new friends too. The Stapleford Super Kitchen was definitely “Bringing Unity To The Community”today

and we would like to thank the New Stapleford Community Centre for allowing us the use of the hall. by Richard MacRae - Stapleford Community Group

Super Kitchen is a network of members who run social eating spaces; cooking for their communities with love. Social eating spaces are there to feed the whole person; belly and heart. And so much good stuff happens when we eat together; everybody is 'hungry' for this type of true nourishment. We call it #socialeating because we all eat a delicious meal together and by #socialeating people can make a positive impact on food waste, food poverty and social isolation.

IN THE COMMUNITY NEW PENSION FREEDOMS EVERYONE SHOULD BE TAKING STEPS NOW New flexibility means anyone over 55 can take all their savings in cash, either all at once or as and when they need it. We need to raise awareness of what is likely to be a growing problem as hundreds of thousands of 55 plus savers gain access to pension lump sums. Also, the Flat Rate State Pension came into operation in April 2016 and full details will be explained during the courses. We are a partner with the Pensions Service (Department for Work and Pensions) and any new legislation will be explained in full during the courses. We aim to keep the courses very friendly and informal with an emphasis on the psychological approach to retirement and how to occupy the extra hours of leisure people will experience in retirement. Many people sleep-walk into retirement and spend more time planning a fortnight’s holiday than their retirement which could last a good 30 odd years or so. If ever the nation needed a wake-up call, then this is it. During the course, each delegate will be able to have a 1:1 with the speakers and also full updates will be given in relation to all the new regulations, together with calculations on the date men and women will receive their State Pension. A 3 course buffet lunch will be provided, plus tea/coffee/biscuits on arrival and during the morning and afternoon breaks. A full pack of information, leaflets, booklets and magazines/newspapers will be provided to take home and refer to after retirement and hand-outs will be provided by each speaker. The Beeston Office is open for anyone to visit as a Resource Centre and for further help after retirement. Places will need to be booked in advance as a charge will be made to cover lunches and admin. costs. Telephone NDPRC on 0115 922 3824, mobile 07790 851 584 or visit the website to book a place on line Next courses take place on: 24-26 October, 28-30 November 2016.

“A two and a half day course! Not for me, I’m retiring. I’m just going to enjoy myself and take it easy; I don’t need to make plans or be told how to pass my time” Well that’s fine, we hope you do enjoy yourself and are able to relax a bit more. But is that all there is to retirement, isn’t there a bit more to it than that? �

For example, how can you be sure that you have received, without prejudice, the best financial advice to safeguard your future, so that you can enjoy yourself without worry.

Do you have any questions about taxation in retirement, such as “if I have a part time job will I pay tax and, if so, how much?” or “how much will my investment be affected.”

“If I live in my villa in Spain, will I still receive my Government pension?”

What about your legal rights – “can I still obtain credit when I retire?”

If I have to go into residential care, will I have to sell my property to pay the fees?” These are some of the questions that have been answered on the “PLANNING FOR CHANGE” courses that we currently run. The course covers all these topics and much more. Other topics include:Fitness/health/diet State Pensions and benefits Safety/Security Consumer advice and yes, even tips on how to enjoy your retirement

Nottingham & District Pre-Retirement Council is a not for profit making Registered Charity and have been arranging pre-retirement courses for over 48 years. All of the Course Facilitators are retired themselves and so can give first hand experience and advice.

Funeral director Alan marks 10 years working as the UK’s only mountain rescue team chaplain A Stapleford funeral director who spends his weekdays organising services for bereaved families will mark 10 years’ service in a very different role this month (September) – as the UK’s only chaplain for a mountain rescue team. Alan Winfield, who works for Gillotts Funeral Directors in Derby Road, has spent his spare time for the last decade on call for Derby Mountain Rescue, ready to join an emergency mission if required. Alan, 58, is believed to be the only person in the country who acts as a chaplain for mountain rescue and his duties include offering troubled colleagues a listening ear or calming the fears of family members worrying about a missing loved one. Derby Mountain Rescue covers the southern reaches of the Peak District, west Nottinghamshire and Derby itself and much of its work involves rescuing injured walkers and searching for people who have gone missing from their homes. Everyone who works for the group is a volunteer and although Alan is fully trained and does attend call-outs, he does not attend as many as other members, giving up his hours as chaplain and as the group’s secretary instead.On the face of it, you could not get two more contrasting roles than that of undertaker and saviour, but Alan, who has worked in the funeral industry for 37 years, says that there are far more similarities than there are differences, not least because both role are dedicated to the same ultimate aim – making people feel better at a difficult time. He is a licensed reader for the Church of England and was invited to become chaplain by the late Steve Hilditch, the former team leader of Derby Mountain Rescue, who felt that the group needed someone who could give emotional support to members and the families of the people they helped. Alan said: “When the team are working, the adrenaline’s going and their training kicks in but it’s only when the


adrenaline subsides, or maybe even weeks later, that people come to terms with what they’ve seen and experienced, which may be something distressing like a deceased person.I am used to working with death, but I understand that for many members of the team, it is something that they will never have come across before and the first time they are confronted by a deceased person can be a shock. My other role on searches can often be talking to the families. I can find out useful information or talk through their feelings of anger or guilt, which helps them deal with the situation and allows the rest of the team to get on with their job.” Alternatively, if Alan is out on a call and the team finds a deceased person, then he will always volunteer to help remove their body. He said: “It is the last thing that our team can ever do for that person, we are delivering them back to their family and that will hopefully give them closure, in the same way that working with a family and conducting a funeral gives them closure.I am very proud to have reached 10 years as chaplain for Derby Mountain Rescue. I find both roles hugely rewarding and I enjoy the feeling of satisfaction from walking away knowing that I have helped someone’s family at the lowest point in their lives, or seeing a team member going back out to do what they are there to do.” Gillotts’ Stapleford office is one of five funeral homes operated by the firm, alongside offices in Eastwood, Kimberley, Selston and Heanor in Derbyshire.
