Spring Cleaning, putting the spring back in your home. This month will see the country start to prepare for summer, the clocks have gone forward and the weather is becoming milder, it's the perfect time to banish winter from your home. A good spring clean is often a great way to do those cleaning jobs that get missed on a regular basis. But what about those jobs that are just too big to manage yourself, your soft furnishings for example? Your carpet is the largest textile in your home, which make it a perfect place for dust, dirt and bacteria to root deep into the pile, which vacuuming alone cannot remove. These can cause health problems to asthma and allergy sufferers. Regular home carpet cleaning (it's normal to have this done every two years) can really help to keep your home and family in top health throughout the year. That's where we can help. Our carpet cleaning service gets right down to the base of the carpet which not only removes all those harmful pollutants we mentioned earlier, it improves it's appearance and will also increase it's life expectancy. At Breedon Carpet Care, we've been cleaning carpets and soft furnishings for over 15 years, we're not general cleaners who occasionally clean carpet. We pride ourselves on being able to adapt to the individual needs of our customers, whether it's just one room or the whole house, we can help. Don't think that because the carpet is being cleaned that you have to empty all of the furniture out. WE move furniture. Items such as the suite and dining table we can move around in the room. You don't need to completely empty your room. All we ask is you move the lighter items such as toys and lamps, small tables etc. We'll move the rest. So why not call us today on 01332 865565 to arrange your free home audit?

“ You Get The Most Thorough Clean Ever Seen Or It’s Free”! That’s right, the most thorough cleaning ever. My carpet and upholstery cleaning is the best and most thorough you could ever have – if you don’t agree I won’t accept your payment.

Along with the purchase of your home and family car, your soft furnishings are one of the largest investments you will make. Professional cleaning of your furnishings on a regular basis will extend their life considerably as well as keeping them hygienic and looking good.

4 Reasons Why You Should Choose My Company To Clean & Protect Your Family’s Health 1. Thorough Cleaning – My method doesn’t leave any residue or cause shrinkage. It cleans down to the base of your carpet removing harmful bacteria leaving your carpet clean and healthy.

2. Honest Pricing – I promise no high-pressure sales gimmicks. The prices I quote you are fully inclusive of cleaning products and labour. A full complete clean AND no hidden extras.

3. Protection of your soft Furnishings - Your valuable soft furnishings will stay cleaner longer, vacuum easier and have improved stain resistance with our carpet and upholstery protectors.

4. Long Standing Reputation – My company enjoys a reputation which is second to none, many of our customers not only come back to us time and again but recommend us to their family and friends.

Readers Letters Dear Grapevine magazine, I have written the following article which I hope you will consider for publication in your next issue We have a newly reopened station at Ilkeston, a new tram line to Toton and one planned for Kimberely. HS2 we are told is on the way and across our various councils locally, discussions are being had about strategic transport links right across our area. So why is Stapleford once again being left out of joined up thinking on ticketing? Stapleford and it’s surrounding areas of Trowell and beyond are about to experience enormous change. The HS2 rail link remains controversial. It will bring great disruption and unwanted changes to streets, neighbourhoods and our countryside. There will be huge development and with it the promise of investment and jobs, but this will only work if we can all get around with ease in an area set to be dealing with a huge increase in traffic. With the new Ilkeston station, the promise of a less than one hour journey to London likely to draw more traffic and crowds from Nottingham, plus an increase in the number of homes being built, we clearly need to develop better links with Nottingham and Derby as well as the rest of our area. The promise of “sustainable transport” was a key part of the Core Housing policy across Broxtowe, so why is the Robin Hood smart card; a discount travel scheme allowing through ticketing across public transport in Nottinghamshire, planning to further narrow its border rather than extending it? Up until March 27th the boundaries for the discount travel card were the Toton/ Stapleford Tram terminus and The Sherwin

22

Island. Many have asked for an extension to Stapleford. A move that would only seem fitting given that the Nottinghamshire border does not end in Bramcote, but instead at the border to Sandiacre. Not only has this request been ignored, but the boundary is moving still further away to Cow Lane Bramcote. Stapleford is proud to be part of Nottingham. I was born and bred here with two parents avid Forest fans and the same fascination all Nottingham kids had with our legendary Robin Hood. So why are we being left out? It seems ironic that Robin Hood was known for robbing the rich to feed the poor. Most folks here couldn’t hardly be described as “rich” and we rely on our City for work and play as much as those inside the City border; so why is it that we are the ones being robbed of discounted fairs and a joined up ticketing system? Stapleford suffered gridlock at times whilst the tram was being put in place and we will suffer far more in order to provide Nottingham with its fast link to London. If you want the Nottingham City Ticketing team to take a look at this again, you can do as I have done and email them here smartticketingteam@nottinghamcity.gov.uk Robin Hood would never have stood for this and we shouldn’t either. Its time we were included for once and had some good news to make the men and women of Stapleford that bit more “Merry”. Lisa Clarke

Walking on air in aid of the Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance. A Nottingham woman will achieve a life-time’s ambition when she is strapped into a harness fixed to the top of a Boeing Stearman PT17 Kaydet plane in aid of the Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance. All of her adult life Cheryl McLean has wanted to undertake a wing walk – it even features on her CV, but as the years have passed by she never thought that she would get the chance to achieve this ambition. This all changed when she turned 50 last June when she decided to use her birthday money for something memorable! Cheryl explained: “Wing walking has been my long-held ambition but I never really thought I would get the chance to do it. Once I decided to book it I was on a high with excitement and butterflies. My friends suggested I raised money whilst doing it and it didn't take me a minute to decide on the Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance. Living in the countryside makes me more aware of the Charity and of the need for the Ambucopter.” All of the money raised from Cheryl’s challenge will go to support the lifesaving work of the Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance, which responds to the most serious of 999 calls, transporting the equivalent of an A&E department to the scene.

on donations from people like Cheryl to ensure that we can continue to provide our vital life-saving service in Lincs & Notts 365 days of the year. We would like to thank Cheryl for choosing to support our Charity and wish her all the best in her amazing challenge; it will definitely be something that she will always remember.” Cheryl will undertake her wing walk, including a loop the loop, on June 3 at Breighton Aerodrome. She will be supported on the day by her partner Rob, parents, sister, brother-in-law, nieces, nephews and their partners. To donate to Cheryl visit www.justgiving.com/fundraising/CherylMcLean1

BEESTON CANCER RESEARCH UK COMMITTEE REACHES £500K MILESTONE The Beeston Cancer Research UK Committee have raised a phenomenal £500,000 for Cancer Research UK since it started fundraising in 1986. The Beeston Cancer Research UK Committee was founded in 1984 by a group of local women who wanted to support Cancer Research UK – Judith Birkby, Isla Thornton, Val Gregory, Joyce Willey, Viven Smart, Maria Pilkington and Joyce Worsley. Three of the founding members are still on the committee today and although Maria and Joyce Worsley retired they still support the work of the group. Over the past 32 years the Beeston Committee have organised a variety of very successful fundraising events including fashion shows, fish and chip suppers, Gardener’s Question Time events, sponsored bike ride, antique roadshow events, collections, quizzes, Lace Market Theatre events, a 24 hour badminton tournament, as well as dealing with the in memoriam donations from local funeral directors. Rebecca Elphick, Local Fundraising Manager for Cancer Research UK said: “On behalf of everyone at Cancer Research UK I want to sincerely thank the Beeston Committee for raising such a phenomenal amount of money for Cancer Research UK. The Committee have achieved so much since 1986 and are wonderful Ambassadors for Cancer Research UK in and around Beeston. Their success has not only been down to their hard work and

30

commitment but thanks to their wonderful friends and family, who have also organised events for the committee, helped with collections and supported the committee events. Margaret Boyd, Chair of the Beeston Committee said: “I’d like to thank the members of the committee for not giving up in the fight against cancer in all its forms. It has been a pleasure fundraising with them over the years. We are very proud of the amount of money we have raised.” Cancer Research UK’s vision is to bring forward the day when all cancers are cured. Over the last 40 years, cancer survival rates in the UK have doubled. In the 1970’s just a quarter of people survived for five years or more but today half of all cancer patients will survive for ten years or more. And Cancer Research UK has been at the heart of this progress. Cancer is a disease of vast complexity and there is much yet to learn and that is why Cancer Research UK’s ambition is to accelerate progress and see three quarters of patients surviving the disease by 2034. However this will only be achieved thanks to the support of individuals and groups, like the Beeston Committee. If you are interested in supporting the Beeston Committee or would like to make a donation please contact Margaret Boyd, on 0115 9256805 or email: theboyds92@talktalk. net

Guests enjoy dancing at the event

One lucky guest also took home a Paul Smith handbag worth £500 after beating other bidders in a charity auction. The bag was just one of a host of fantastic prizes which were generously donated by local businesses and individuals.

Grown Ups Choice The 12 Lives of Samuel Hawley by Hannah Tinti This book is a challenge to review as it’s not something I would normally have read, and I can’t honestly use the word enjoy… but I’m also really glad I did read it, and the story has lingered with me for several days. The book is the life story of Samuel Hawley – it’s not a happy tale. The chapters alternate between his current life – largely told through his daughter Loo, and the story of his life to that point, slowly revealing the encounters and situations that have brought them to this place, at this time. The story has a brooding quality, and you sense early on that there will be no happy endings. It’s also a coming of age story for Loo, who begins to understand her own beginnings and make her own choices about how to live her adult life. The book is really beautifully written, the characters are completely identifiable and the descriptions of places and people are thoroughly engaging. Samuel is a simple man, life hasn’t dealt him a great hand, but when he falls in love he makes a series of decisions that are intended to keep his family safe… The ending is somewhat disappointing for someone who likes clear cut finishes, it leaves many things to the imagination of the reader, which I guess means you can give them a happy ending or not! If you like this then try Tinti’s The Good Thief.

Children’s Choice Astronaut Lamby by Jude Lennon We really love Lamby here, and are very lucky to have bought the toy set to go with it! The story is very rhythmic and funny and the crazy alien is exactly as our children would create one – all eyes and lots of legs. The colours and illustrations are captivating, and from a more practical point of view the font is very readable (I have struggled on occasion when some books get a bit too ‘arty’). We now know the story so well that our three year old can ‘read’ it on her own – and her older siblings can really read it as well, so they can entertain each other which is perfect. We are looking forward to more Lamby tales this year, and will let you know about his pirate adventures… An interview with Jude Lennon is on the website. w ww . mrsaverag eeval u ates. co .u k

Film Review Beauty and the Beast

This ‘tale as old as time’ has been recaptured in a liveaction interpretation of the 1991 Disney classic. For those who have forgotten the familiar tale, beautiful Belle (Emma Watson) is held prisoner by a Prince-turned-Beast (Dan Stevens) in a glorious castle with magical houseware which come to life, as the unlikely pair fall for each other and in turn break the curse of eternal damnation. Gaston (Luke Evans), is the town’s arrogant heartthrob, who throws a spanner in the works, trying to win Belle for himself. This remake respects the animated version overall and rarely strays from the animated Disney storyline. They introduce a couple of new musical numbers, which let the film down slightly as they’re cringe-worthy and try too hard, showing that you can’t improve on perfection. Some of the stunning scenes are so visually overwhelming and theatrical that you feel like you’re watching a West-End musical. You’re drenched in magic, opulence and royal luxury. Emma Watson plays the perfect Belle, naturally beautiful and seemingly intelligent, much like Harry Potter’s Hermoine. However the quality of her voice in unconvincing, making you question how advanced her musical talent is. Similarly, Dan Stevens makes a great Beast but is let down by his musical number. The show is stolen by Luke Evans as Gaston. He is narcissistic, arrogant and unwittingly hilarious. He adds comic relief that will appeal to all ages; he is a baddie you can’t help but love - but not as much as he loves himself! Ian Mckellen, Ewan Mcgregor and Emma Thompson finally grace the screen in human form in the last five minutes of the movie, but their acting talent and personality shone just as bright through the inanimate objects they voiced, such as a clock, a candlestick and a teapot. A treat for the eyes and the ears; adults will regress back into children, and introduce a new generation to the wonder of Beauty and the Beast. 4/5 stars

Home Instead Senior Care Care and Support at Home – Fraud Protection Toolkit Home is where we should all feel the safest, especially as years go by. Scammers, however, have found a way to invade the secure lives of many by targeting older people’s post, the internet and telephone, as well as unsecured documents. The ever growing incidents of scams is putting many older people at risk, threatening to strip them of their assets, their independence and their trust. It is not just the impact a financial loss can have on an individual, regardless of age, but the knowledge that one has been duped into providing personal information, signing an agreement or letting people into one’s home. Home Instead have partnered with Think Jessica, a charity which works to raise awareness of scams and supports victims and their families, in order to spread the message about the scale of the problem and help protect vulnerable people. Through the provision of useful and practical information we aim to raise awareness of the risks facing older people in order to do everything we can to prevent these devastating crimes. Think Jessica was set up in 2007 by Marilyn Baldwin, whose mother Jessica, suffered for several years at the hands of fraudsters who tricked her into parting with thousands of pounds. The charity is supported by fraud protection agencies, local and international organisations, and police forces nationwide. In partnership with Think Jessica we have developed a toolkit that provides hints and tips to help you avoid being affected by criminal activity. Specific topics in the toolkit include: • Financial Abuse tactics • Top Scams involving Seniors • Top 5 reasons why Seniors are targets • Impact of crime on the Elderly We have also provided a series of checklists that can be used to help protect you or your family members. These include: • Criminal target scale • Scam-proofing Seniors checklist • Scam reminder checklist: Post • Scam reminder checklist: Telephone • Scam reminder checklist: Computer If you would like a copy of the toolkit please contact us and we will be happy to send one to you.

WIN TICKETS TO SEE WALTER TROUT AT ENGINE SHED LINCOLN Friday 5th May 2017! Walter Trout is on fire right now, ‘Alive’ is the sound of a man resurrected and at the peak of his game following the release of two firecrackers of albums; ‘Alive in Amsterdam’ (2016) and ‘Battle Scars’ (2015) - both reached the top of the Blues Charts and has rejuvenated one of the most formidable bluesmen of our time. Both albums received an avalanche of praise from BBC Radio 2’s Bob Harris & Paul Jones, Vintage TV, Jazz FM, Planet Rock, Team Rock and Total Rock as well adulation from all corners of the press; “As intimate as it gets” declared Classic Rock on the release of ‘Alive in Amsterdam’ whilst that was just the tip of the iceberg. “There’s no doubt, he’s back” said Blues in Britain, Fireworks called it “a very emotional album”, Powerplay followed with a 9/10 review saying it was “Blues at its very best…[and] crackles with energy and electricity right from the start”, Guitarist Magazine bowed down with a 8/10 review proclaiming it was “a rollercoaster ride through some of the most exciting blues your ears will ever witness” and another 9/10 review came from The Blues calling him “a road warrior reborn.” After a blistering performance at Ramblin Man’ Fair, BluesFest and his October tour last year Walter is back in the UK calling at; Whitely

Bay, Glasgow, Sheffield, Lincoln, Warrington, Norwich and Leamingon and he can’t wait as he explains; “We are really looking forward to getting back to the UK and play for all our friends and fans. The band has been playing better than ever lately and we are psyched up! An extra added bonus for our UK fans will be the Trout Brothers Band opening the shows. It is one of the great joys of my life to tour with my family. So we hope to see you all at the shows.” Walter will be joined on the tour by The Trout Brothers Band; his sons Jonathan and Mike along with honorary brother Adam. Check out more on them here www.troutbrothersband.com These reviews highlight the unrelenting and at times emotional stage presence of one of the finest blues rockers ever particularly following his incredible life-saving liver transplant in 2014. Trout shares, “After experiencing the immense impact this has had on me as my body shut-down, and I could not walk, talk or even think about playing or singing, this seems almost surreal. It is like a phantom from another era that is mysteriously re-emerging, and here I stand stronger than I have been for years. It is hard to express how poignant this feels to have my

full voice, strength, musicianship and command of musical language back. I am emotionally charged, explosive with feelings, and over the moon excited to reexperience what I love to do - playing for people – engaging them to walk with me through the Blues. My fans showed me so much love, support, and a commitment to help me in my time of need, the moment is here to get back out there and bring the music to each and every one of them who enabled me to see this day.” A Walter Trout show is not one to be missed.

Eddi Reader grew up in Glasgow and Irvine, Scotland and it was in those towns that she learned to use music as a vehicle for communicating with others through busking and performing at the local folk clubs. In the early 1980s, Eddi travelled around Europe with circus and performance artists before moving to London where she quickly became a sought after session vocalist. She famously harmonized with Annie Lennox touring with the Eurythmics, after her time with successful punk outfit Gang of Four. It was the short-lived but warmly remembered Fairground Attraction that really brought her into the limelight and to the attention of a much wider audience. The single ‘Perfect’ and parent album First of a Million Kisses both topped the British charts. However, it was her subsequent albums which signalled her increasing ability to assimilate different musical styles and make them all very much her own. Her unerring instinct for fine material, whether self penned, collaborative or a carefully chosen cover version resulted in Mirmama (1992), Eddi Reader (1994), Candyfloss & Medicine (1996), Angels & Electricity (1998), Simple Soul (2001).

48

Through these years Eddi based herself in London, but in 2001 she decided to move home to Glasgow where she recorded the classic ‘Songs Of Robert Burns’ album released to international acclaim in 2003. Awarded the MBE in 2006 for services to singing, she took her Burns songs on tour all over the world and found connections to the bard everywhere from Kolkata, India to Sydney, Australia. In 2006 she released ‘Peacetime’ on Rough Trade Records featuring the finest traditional players in the United Kingdom and produced by Folk Musician of The Year, John McCusker. Constant touring with her band has created a magical organic chemistry between Eddi and her players and the results of this relationship can be found on her most recent release.‘Love Is The Way’, Eddi Reader’s seventh solo album, was released in March 2009 on Rough Trade Records.

EDDI READER coming to LINCOLN – Drill Hall on Friday 5th May 2017! Produced by Eddi herself, it is her best work so far. Recorded in a matter of days with her band in Glasgow, the record has captured the award winning songstress in her finest form. Songs written with her long time writing partner Boo Hewerdine, songs written with her life partner John Douglas (The Trashcan Sinatras) and a song from the magical Irish singer/songwriter Declan O’Rourke as well as a rare Brian Wilson composition, an Eddi/Fleetwood Mac ‘mash up’, and a wonderful song from Dublin songwriter Jack Maher.2010 saw Eddi play sold out shows promoting “Love Is The Way” all over the world. It also brought Eddi’s Hollywood movie debut as she featured in Richard Linklaters, “Me And Orson Welles” with Zak Efron and Clare Danes. Eddi plays a chanteuse in the movie and is featured singing ‘Lets Pretend That There’s A Moon’ with the Jools Holland Orchestra. The original soundtrack features another two performances from Eddi. From the traditional to the contemporary, Eddi brings joyous life to all forms of song. Her taste in co-writers, writers, songs and players is impeccable and anything with her name on it is guaranteed musical treasure. Whilst the perfection of her technique is widely acknowledged,

what sets Reader apart is the depth and quality of the emotional performance; her ability not only to move the listener but to connect her experience to that of her audience. Her passion and instinct move people in a way reminiscent of those who have influenced her work. Her rare blend of meltingly true vocals and towering romanticism combine with an astute and pragmatic nature to make her a unique and powerful figure in contemporary British music. She has effortlessly developed into one of popular music’s most thrilling and affecting performers.

AT THE HEART OF YOUR FUNERAL PLANNING When we started providing funeral pre-payment plans more than 20 years ago, the idea of ‘paying for your funeral in advance’ was quite unusual. Today, funeral plans are more well known, and available from a wide variety of sources. However, you wouldn’t buy a will from a DIY superstore, so why buy something so important from someone who knows nothing about funerals, your local area, or you. Buying a plan from Gillotts means you can sit down with one of our staff who know local facilities and talk about what you want your funeral to be like. If you wish, you can go into details: music, flowers, what everyone should wear, which photographs to Eastwood Office

Visit www.gillotts.co.uk/funeral-planning, any of our funeral homes for an information pack, or phone to chat.

LET US FOCUS ON YOUR CONCERNS At a time of bereavement, it’s only natural that your mind is in a whirl, with questions that need answering and concerns that need addressing. At Gillotts Funeral Directors, we have generations of experience in leading families through this difficult time and providing a compassionate, flexible and high quality service. Our philosophy is to tailor the service we provide to suit each family – some prefer us to visit them at home, others prefer to visit us in the office. Some people want us to do everything – order flowers, produce service sheets, place press notices – whilst others prefer to do things themselves.

ANNUAL SERVICES TO REMEMBER LOVED ONES A POIGNANT SERVICE to remember loved ones will take place at Bramcote Crematorium on Sunday 14th May. The annual service, led by Celebrant Rachel Snowball in the Serenity Chapel at 2.00pm will be an opportunity for friends and families to come together and remember their loved ones. The service will last around an hour and include readings, prayers and hymns, with musical contributions from Soloist Sarah Carlin. On arrival at the chapel the congregation will be invited to light a candle in memory of their loved ones, with their names read out during the act of remembrance. Local Funeral Directors and other service providers will be supporting the crematorium staff on the day. After the service (weather permitting), balloons will be released from the Crematorium grounds, following which refreshments will be available in the Serenity Chapel waiting room. This service has become a very popular event and attracts a large attendance. It is recommended that people arrive early to ensure a seat within the chapel and children of all ages are most welcome. Anyone needing special assistance is requested to contact the crematorium office. Comments from previous services include: “Lovely to remember our loved ones this way” “Very moving, beautiful hymns and songs – thank you” “Excellent, very moving, very good” “This was the most uplifting service I’ve been to.” “Lovely Service – it meant a lot” “A very moving service, well balanced and successful in catering for the varied members of the audience” For more information, please contact Bramcote Bereavement Services on 0115 917 3849, email bramcotecrem@broxtowe.gov.uk or visit www.bramcotebereavement.org 58
