Local teen Emma Snow writes about various topics and events each month in the Grapevine. “A voice for the young people in our Community”. 18 things I’ve learnt in 18 years Birthday Edition As I will be turning 18 this month, I thought it would be fitting to take a different approach and write about 18 things I have learnt in 18 years. On reflection, I realised that there are many aspects in life that we take for granted. So here goes… 1. Family is very important. Not all friendships last forever, but blood relations do. In close families, they will always be there to support you unconditionally. Don’t take family for granted. 2. Appreciate your friends. I love the saying ‘friends are like stars, you might not always see them, but you know they’re always there’. So cliché, but so true. Know who your true friends are and stick by them. They will be your forever friends. 3. No one is ugly. As I look around, no one stands out as being ugly. Everyone is unique and everyone has their own quirks. I 18

think some people are quick to judge people on their appearance before they get to know them. Beauty shines from within. 4.…But some people have an ugly heart. Avoid these people. If you suspect that someone has bad intentions and this is proven to be true, don’t waste your time on them and don’t feel guilty letting them go. You need positive and kind people in your life. 5. Appreciate the little things in life. The ‘hello!’ from your neighbour in the morning, the colour of the sky when the sun sets, the sound of the people you love laughing. Appreciate these things. 6. Cheese goes with everything! You can put cheese on crackers, beans on toast, pasta, you name it. Cheese will go with it! 7. Hard work is the key to success. Those who think success is handed to people on a plate are wrong. People work to get where they are. Creating opportunities takes time and dedication and many people wouldn’t be where they are today without hard work. 8. My level of success compared to the next person’s is irrelevant. ‘Don’t compare your chapter one to

their chapter 10’. Everyone is at a different chapter of their lives and so your success level will always be different to the next persons. 9. Grab every opportunity with both hands Take every opportunity that presents itself. You never know what may come of it. It might work out, it might not. There’s no harm in trying. 10. Actions speak louder than words Don’t always trust what people may tell you. Someone can tell you that they care, but don’t believe it until they show it. Then you will know if they really meant it. 11. You can’t please everyone Not everyone likes pizza and not everyone likes chocolate. If these can’t please everyone, then neither can you. Appreciate the people who love you for who you are. 12. Don’t be afraid to question things. If something doesn’t seem right to you, question it. If you feel you have been mistreated, question it. If someone doesn’t seem themselves, question them. This takes me onto my next point… 13. Listen. Always Listening is so important. Don’t be someone who doesn’t consider others. If a friend wants to confide in you, listen to them. Listening is a valuable skill many of us take for granted. Sometimes, having someone listen to you is all you need to feel better. 14. Don’t feel pressured to grow up. Keep hold of your inner child for as long as possible. Society tells us to grow up and be responsible. Yes, do this. But

take that inner childish spark to the end of your life. Sometimes the best memories are made when your inner child emerges. 15. Never say never I go by this saying an awful lot. Don’t doubt anything; you never know what is around the next corner. 16. Take time to be proud of yourself In today’s society, we achieve so much, but spend so little time recognising what we do. We are always moving on to the next big project, taking the next leap. Take a moment to think back to this time last year and think of everything you have achieved. Be proud. 17. Your happiness is key Often, we go around trying to make everyone else happy and forget about our own personal happiness. Help people out, but don’t let it take over your life. Your health and wellbeing is the most important. 18. Learning never ends. The list of things I have learnt so far is much longer than 18 points, but I selected the ones which I thought were the most important to me. Every day we are learning. No matter how old you are, you will learn something new every single day. Article by Emma Snow You can now read more from me on my new blog: https://emmsnow.blogspot. co.uk

Fresh Advice WHOLE OF MARKET MORTGAGE ADVICE HOW MUCH COULD YOU SAVE ON YOUR MORTGAGE?

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. If you would like to discuss the potential saving available through remortgaging then call us today for your free initial mortgage consultation. Fresh Advice are also able to advise on and arrange the following products: • • • • •

Mortgages Life Insurance * & Critical Illness Cover * Income Protection * Shareholder Protection & Relevant Life * Building & Contents (Guarantee to BEAT any UK quote, existing premium or renewal premium (subject to terms and conditions))**

Telephone: 0333 0146 001 Email: enquiries@freshadvice.co.uk Web: www.freshadvice.co.uk Your home may be repossessed if you do not keep up repayments on your mortgage

Lee Griffiths trading as Fresh Advice is an appointed representative of Julian Harris Mortgages Limited, which is authorised and regulated by the financial conduct authority. The initial consultation is free, but there may be a fee for the advice given which will be discussed during your initial consultation. A maximum fee of 1% of loan amount or £500 could be charged, however a typical fee is £250. Insurance is offered from a range of providers for non-investment life assurance, critical illness cover, income protection and relevant life. *Insurance **Provided by Premier Financial.

IN THE COMMUNITY Update on Stapleford Post Office move The Public Consultation to move the Stapleford Post Office was discussed at Broxtowe Borough Council recently. The Leader of Broxtowe Borough Council, Councillor Richard Jackson said:” Just as Beeston post office move into W.H.Smith was completed we were informed that the post office now plans to move the Stapleford branch into " Bargain Booze" shop. I have serious concerns about the suitability of the shop so we will consider a Council response in consultation with local members”. There are also concerns from Stapleford Councillors too. Stapleford Councillor Richard MacRae said that: he was pleased the post office could be moving to a more central location, offering good parking and opening seven days a week, but described the choice of venue as “questionable”He is also urging people to join in the consultation, which runs until November 29. You can share your views on the proposed move through our easy and convenient new online questionnaire via the link below. When entering the site you will be asked to enter the code for this branch: 327227 postofficeviews.co.uk. He would also like to add that by taking part in the Public Consultation either online, via email or phone call will ensure your views are heard by the Post Office, there is no point doing a petition as individual residents having a say will make a greater impact on the Post Office. Stapleford Councillor John McGrath said: “Last year myself and Councillor Richard MacRae along with Officers from Broxtowe Borough Council met with the Public Affairs Manager from the Post Office, we were all told that the current Post Master would not be

carrying on with running the Post Office once his current contract with them ran out. You may recall they wanted to move the Post Office into The Chequers but that never happened. We discussed various locations and asked the Post Office to get back to us, unfortunately they never did. We now have concerns about the suitability of the Post Office being moved into a Beer Off and would also like to urge local residents to take time to fill out the Public Consultation. Lots of comments have also been made by local residents including:“Absolutely ridiculous location for it”. “Well out of the way!” “From what I understand from reading the PO bumf, it will be Bargain Booze, with Post Office counter services, not an actual Post Office”. “It's current location is ideal. Close to bus stops, the health centre and the library”. “What are the reasons for moving?” “ Cannot the current location be modernised?” “If it does move what happens to the old Post Office, it will just become another eyesore”. “I'm concerned about it being in a booze shop.some vulnerable folk using the Post Office, have that temptation of buying booze & spending unnecessarily in front of them”. “I don't know why the post office can't be an independent shop, why not move it to the side of Sainsbury's, bet they'd get a good rent because Wilko are still paying it, it'd also be a good position and it fills an empty shop”. “Who knows we might get staff that smile! Or training on customer service!” Residents can also have their say by emailing comments@postoffice.co.uk or calling the customer helpline on 03457 22 33 44 Donna MacRae Secretary Stapleford Community Group

October‘16

Worlds Apart by Azi Ahmed This is an interesting memoir of a Muslim woman and her early to mid-life. It is a useful and well written reflection on life in Britain during the 90’s for a Muslim girl growing up in a traditional family, but with very unconventional views of the world. What’s particularly unusual is that Ahmed decides to join the training for the Territorial SAS (albeit unexpectedly) Her experiences are very raw and painful, she is the most tenacious and naïve person which makes for a fascinating read. Her life after the SAS training is also unusual as she looks to become an MP—a story that is yet to be concluded. The book is well paced and Ahmed is a likeable character, but it’s lacking in depth and I would have liked to learn more about her fathers' early life, her sister and her mother. Although her SAS experience is extraordinary, for me it didn’t completely make sense, but I don’t want to give away any spoilers! It’s Well worth a read.

Children’s Choice Not Enough for Queen Fluff by Rachel Lyon It’s another Rachel Lyon book, but we love her! This is an important tale about humility and grace, things that children often struggle with , and which are hard to explain. Queen Fluff is very demanding and rude. Her expectations are high and her visit to meet the other bunnies in the Kingdom reminds her that there are more important things in life than money and palaces. The illustrations by Catalina Echeverri are wonderful, and the rhyming text rolls of the tongue. Lots of fun all round.

This will be the basic rules for general cycling and will go on signage in the designated area. The designated area will also be clearly identified by smaller signs at strategic points around the perimeter. The signs are in stock and posts are on order. In addition to this Broxtowe Borough Council will agree a more detailed code of practice which the group will sign up to. This will include what can and cannot be done in terms of digging and trail construction.

has been formulated which will be enable both walkers and mountain bikers to share Stapleford Woods together. To protect walkers the designated bike area has been created to avoid the public rights of way passing through the site. In addition signs will be placed at entrance points to the open space warning of cycling and showing the designated area on a plan. The code of practice will include rules on how the area is left, for example no holes or trips to be left after any construction work. Finally, a documented monthly inspection will take place to ensure the siteis in good order.The Mountain Bikers have created a Facebook which can be found via the link below.

Councillor John McGrath and his wife who regularly take their dog ‘Woody’ for walks around the woods are more than happy with the Code Of Conduct. John and Jane are glad a mutual agreement

IN THE COMMUNITY CHILDREN URGED TO HAVE THEIR SAY ON BROXTOWE PLAY AREAS WHAT WOULD make your park more explorable, climbable or playable? Broxtowe Borough Council needs local children to help make its play areas even better by answering a few questions on how they like to play to help shape a new play strategy. Children, with the help of their parents, are being asked to answer a range of questions about their favourite type of play spaces and activities as part of two online consultations run by the Council in partnership with Groundwork Greater Nottingham. The consultations can be completed at www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/Broxtoweplaystrategy5-9 for five to nine year olds or www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/Broxtoweplaystrategy10-16 for ten to 16 year olds and are open until 30th November. Chair of the Leisure, Parks & Cemeteries Committee, Councillor Shane Easom said: “We all have fond memories of playing on the swings, slide or climbing trees as youngsters and this consultation will help the Council make sure it’s play areas meet the needs of local children so they can enjoy their play time. I urge any parents or teachers in the Borough to encourage and help their children to complete the surveys so we can improve these areas for future generations.” There are over 40 Council managed play areas across the Borough which are enjoyed by thousands of children each year. It first produced a Play Strategy in 2007 but it needs a review to find out what priorities local children have when it comes to play areas to best meet their needs.

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 www.ndprc.org.uk Next courses take place on: 24-26 October, 28-30 November 2016.

Your blood saves lives. Your blood donation is an amazing gift to people who need it in an emergency or for on-going medical treatment. We need over 6,000 people to give blood every day to meet the needs of hospitals and patients. Each year we need approximately 200,000 new donors, as some donors can no longer give blood. Most people between the ages of 17-65 are able to give blood. Around half our current donors are over 45. That’s why we need more young people (over the age of 17) to start giving blood, so we can make sure we have enough blood in the future.Find out who can give blood, and then book an appointment to give blood. To find out if you can give blood please go on our website: https://www.blood.co.uk/who-can-give-blood/ You can call us on 0300 123 23 23
