GRAPEVINE COMPETITION TO WIN TWO TICKETS TO SEE THE SOUTH- NEWARK PALACE THEATRE, 3RD NOV 2017 When great British pop institution, The Beautiful South split in 2007, some members of Tthe band didn’t feel ready to hang up their microphones or instruments just yet… The South feature former members of The Beautiful South including singer Alison Wheeler and lifelong sax player Gaz Birtles. Since original singer, Dave Hemingway, left the group earlier this year, Gaz has now moved across to vocal duties. They play the songs made famous by The Beautiful South and bring back the full flavour and excitement with the nine piece live band. With the new reshuffle complete, The South are a full team again and raring to go! Their live show promises to continue to celebrate and perform the classic Beautiful South songs - A Little Time (the number one single), Perfect 10, Rotterdam, Old Red Eyes Is Back, Good as Gold, Don't Marry Her. All performed again live, these songs, and many more, span an impressive 20 year career starting way back in 1989! The South are: Alison Wheeler (Vocals), Gaz Birtles (Vocals), Phil Barton (Guitars), Steve Nutter (Bass), Dave Anderson (Drums), Karl Brown (Percussion), Gareth John (Trumpet), Su Robinson (Sax), Andy Price (Keys).

Wollaton Singers, a well established local female choir, is looking for new members for the new term starting on Tuesday 5th September. We meet every Tuesday in term time, 7.30 pm to 9.30pm, in the back room of the Methodist Church on Wollaton Road Beeston (next to the Commercial pub). It's a really friendly group and we have a lot of fun as well as working hard to reach a high standard for performances. There are usually 3 performances a year in the local area and we raise money for local charities. The range of music is very wide but is mainly short pieces rather than major choral works. It helps to read music but you don't need to, and the best thing is that there are NO AUDITIONS! People are welcome to just turn up on any Tuesday evening or you can get some more information by checking out the website: www.wollatonsingers.org.uk The Helpful Bureau Day Trips for the over 55’s

Sept‘17

Grown Ups Choice Condition: The Final Correction by Alec Birri I was nervous to start reading this, one because it’s the third book in a trilogy and I haven’t read the first two – and secondly because I read the introduction and was already a bit scared… However, good writing is good writing whatever the subject matter and despite this dystopian tale which is disturbing and complex, it’s completely unputdownable because of the quality of Birri’s prose. I do feel that reading the first two stories would have been an advantage in the back story and character development, and I plan to go back and read them once The Final Correction is less sharp in my mind. I am always drawn to military writers and themes as I have a strong connection to the military – Birri served in the British Army for 30 years and his writing has a cathartic element that seeps through the story. The book raised a number of moral and ethical questions that were deeply provoking and sparked a number of challenging conversations with myself and in groups. For this reason alone it would make a brilliant book club choice. I can’t use the word ‘enjoy’ as the book (for me) was too dark for that, but I’m very glad I’ve read it and was unable to think of much else while navigating the relationship between the main characters – both of whom are flawed and cracked and brilliantly portrayed, although opposites in every way. The story is convoluted and unpredictable which makes it all the more attractive and unusual. In a world of repeats and covers, it was refreshing to read something new and unexpected. Thank you to Bookollective who provided me with a copy of this book to review.

Children’s Choice Astronaut Lamby by Jude Lennon, Illustrated by Holly Bushnell 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 3 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… www.mrsaverageevaluates.co.uk

£1000 RAISED FOR WOMEN’S CHARITY A GREAT BRITISH summer garden party has helped raised £1,000 for Wellbeing of Women, a charity which funds research into women’s reproductive health and childbirth. The Mayor of Broxtowe, Councillor Halimah Khaled MBE is supporting Wellbeing of Women as her chosen charity this year and joined friend and fellow Councillor, Dr. John Doddy at his home for the garden party, where guests enjoyed a three course curry lunch, entertainment and a raffle.

Halimah has an ambitious fundraising target this year and other events are planned including ‘Nottingham’s Got Talent’ talent show on 10th September at the Village Hotel, a Golf Day at Chilwell Manor Golf Club on 17th September, a cake sale as part of the Heritage Open Days and the annual Charity Ball on 24th March 2018.

Care and support at home: Choosing a Care Provider 1. Care at home can provide the help and support necessary for people to remain independent and stay in their own home for as long as possible. Although care at home has traditionally been delivered by Local Authorities or companies appointed by Local authorities, there is now a much wider choice of providers for both private and social care funding. If you qualify for social care funding (see my previous articles on care needs and funding) there is now a duty for councils to produce a care and support plan and offer a Personal Budget. A Personal Budget is an agreed amount of money which is allocated to you personally by your local council (and other funding sources) following and assessment of your care and support needs. This is support that you decide and control. In other words you control the money for your care and support. The amount of money which has been agreed as you Personal Budget can be received as Direct Payments where the local authority pays part or your entire personal budget into a designated bank account. You then utlise this direct payment to pay for the support you choose to have. Regardless of funding the approach to evaluating and choosing a provider can be daunting. In many instances we have the added pressure of having to make a decision quickly to accommodate a need brought about by illness or sudden deterioration in someone’s condition. The guidelines below will help you ask the right questions and evaluate any prospective provider(s) to ensure that your decision is made on the basis of sound analysis. The better companies will

freely provide this information but be prepared to ask. You should ask whether the company is registered with the Care & Quality Commission (CQC) and request details of their latest inspection. The CQC is the body responsible for regulating care in England and carries out regular inspections to rate the services based on how well they meet minimum standards. You can also find out more about the provider (or ask somebody to do it on your behalf) via the internet at www.cqc. org.uk by entering the provider’s details or post code. It is also important to find out whether the provider recruits and employs their staff as opposed to utilising a third party agency that supplies staff. Ask about the type of training they provide before carers are allowed to visit clients. As a minimum it should include First aid, Moving & Handling, Infection Control, Safeguarding, Health & Safety and Food Hygiene. In addition you should confirm that a Criminal Records Check is carried out before staff are employed and find out how many references (if any) they request from previous employers. An understanding of how they assign carers to specific clients is vitally important. Once you agree the number and length of visits find out how many carers they will use and how they decide on the relevant carer(s). A good provider will aim to minimise the number of carers involved and will also carefully look at the compatibility between the carer and the person receiving the care. Do they introduce each carer as opposed

Housing’s Garden Competition Three prize presentations were held last week after green fingered tenants took part in a garden competition run by Housing and United Living. Housing invited tenants and leaseholders to enter a Garden Competition, which was featured in the Spring edition of the Tenant and Leaseholder Matters. They were asked to enter photos of their own garden or outdoor space, or were nominated by a neighbour or relative who they felt deserved recognition for their efforts. The three categories were Best Individual Garden, Best Small Container Display Best Communal Garden. Residents who are involved in involvement groups were asked to help judge the entries, and travelled out with a Housing Officer to look at the individual gardens and spaces. The following winners were chosen: Best Individual Garden – Mrs Elliot, Ewe Lamb Close Best Small Container Display – Mrs Ward, Regency Court Best Communal Garden – Grove Court, Retirement Living scheme There were two prizes for each category of National Garden Centre Vouchers and a gardening hamper, and each winner was presented with a personalised certificate. United Living sponsored the competition, and Chris Harrison from United Living attended along with the residents to present the prizes.

Richard Baker, Regional Director of United Living said: "United Living are happy to support the local community of Broxtowe; good things happen when we all pull together. The tenants and leaseholders have worked hard on their gardens and should be very proud of what has been achieved".

Walking with the Long Eaton Rambling Club By John Aram Walking has been described by experts as the perfect form of physical activity. So why not get out in the countryside and witness Britain’s beautiful scenery on foot? Walking is fast becoming Britain’s no one pastime; a good walk in the countryside is good for your health and wellbeing, keeping you fit by burning off all those unwanted calories and comes at very little to no cost at all. The Long Eaton rambling club are out in the countryside every weekend, some Thursdays and evenings during the lighter nights. So why not come and join us on a ramble this weekend, a full programme of walks are listed on our web-site. The rambling club always meet in Long Eaton to car share, so to keep transport costs to a minimum unlike other clubs that generally meet at the start of walks. Slightly longer walks are taken each Sunday with shorter walks on Thursdays; the walks are taken at a relatively easy pace and usually with a pub stop to rejuvenate the parts that need rejuvenating. You don’t have to be a seasoned hiker to enjoy a walk with the Long Eaton rambling club; the aim is to make the walks fun, friendly and above all enjoyable. We always welcome new members, so we will look forward to see you soon. Find us on www.longeatonramblingclub.org.uk or phone John on 0115 8495813

GRAPEVINE COMPETITION TO WIN TWO TICKETS TO SEE HOWARD JONES ELECTRIC BAND TOUR- 25TH NOV 2017 BIRMINGHAM O2 INSTITUTE

THoward Jones returns for a UK tour in

November, his first since 2014, with his new and extended Electric Band; following a 24 date Headline tour of the USA. The tour will also coincide with a brand new ‘Best Of ’ Howard Jones release entitled 'BEST (1983-2017)'. Audiences can expect to hear many of Howard’s chart topping singles as well as new songs that featured in the recent Eddie the Eagle film (2016) and his 2015 multi-media ‘ENGAGE’ project. It was in 1983 that multi-instrumentalist Howard Jones first burst onto the contemporary music scene with his very British songwriting, pioneering synthesizers and thought provoking lyrics. He set out his manifesto in his very first single ‘New Song’ where the lyrics called on the listener to challenge their preconceived ideas, to see both sides and “throw off your mental chains”. Along with ‘New Song’, his first two albums, the twice Platinum, Number 1 selling Human’s Lib (1984) and Dream into Action, the Gold selling record that peaked at Number 2 in 1985, brought Howard a host of Top 10 hits including ‘Things Can Only Get Better’, ‘What Is Love?’, ‘Pearl in the Shell’, ‘Like to Get to Know You Well’, ‘Hide and Seek’, ‘Look Mama’ and ‘No One Is To Blame’, which reached Number 1 in the USA. He also performed at Live Aid (Wembley Stadium) in 1985.

Local teen Emma Snow writes about various topics and events each month in the Grapevine. “A voice for the young people in our Community”. Language change isn’t all that bad. Language changes more than I change my hairstyle. And trust me, that’s very frequently. The point that I am trying to make is that language isn’t static, it has always evolved and changed. Think back to the language of Shakespeare and then think about some of the language we use today. It’s very different, init? Take Multicultural London English, which is now usually referred to as Multicultural Urban English. MLE emerged in the late 20th century and was originally spoken by working class youth in London. Influences include strong Jamaican and West African patois and it spread to mainly southern England, where it then began to slowly replace the Cockney accent. The reason it is now often referred to as Multicultural Urban English is because, not only is it being used by the youth of London, but by many people particularly in urban areas across the whole of the UK. There are many negative views surrounding changes to the use of different words in the English language. There will have been linguists in the past disagreeing with language change and saying that it is wrong. Language change is never wrong and, of course, everyone

52

is entitled to their own opinion but the process of language change is a natural one. No one criticised Shakespeare or Dickens for coining new words, did they? MLE is also often referred to as Jafaican (fake Jamaican). Jafaican itself immediately sounds like a mockery and if you thought that, you aren’t wrong. Jafaican is often perceived as being inauthentic and something that people put on to portray a ‘ghetto authenticity’ in order to ‘sound cool’. MLE has also been accused of making young people sound ‘unintelligent’ with the thought that ‘street slang will exclude people from many work opportunities.’ These comments are unfair, because you shouldn’t make assumptions about someone based entirely on their accent or dialect. Language is used as part of each individual’s identity and you certainly can’t always base language on intelligence; there just isn’t a proven correlation. Having said that, perhaps a way around it would be to teach young people to code switch, which is changing their dialect according to context. This however, often doesn’t need to be taught because it is something that most people do naturally depending on who they are conversing with. Even though young people need to be reminded of how to use language in specific contexts, they should never have to completely abandon their own accent and dialect because this gives them an identity and something to be proud of, acting as a form of regional solidarity.

I think it’s unfair that not all forms of language are accepted and that critics of MLE are actually condemning its speakers rather than the language itself. If someone is exposed to a certain type of language, it is likely to become part of their own vocabulary. Language is a way of expressing solidary with your peers. Who’s to say that Received Pronunciation, which is often referred to as the Queen’s English, doesn’t sound absurd and snooty? I’m not saying that it does, but attitude towards language change is just a subjective opinion. Whatever young people adopt, the older generations will always pick out flaws and criticise it. It’s just the way it is, init? Article by Emma Snow To keep updated follow @_EmmaSnow on Twitter.

£400,000 funding boost for Notts veterans Nottinghamshire ex-service veterans are set to benefit from a £400,000 grant to help improve their health and well-being. The St John and Red Cross Defence Medical Welfare Service (DMWS) and the Alzheimer’s Society have teamed up with Nottinghamshire County Council and successfully bid for funding, which is managed by the Community Covenant Aged Veterans Fund. It is estimated 5.8 percent of Nottinghamshire’s 750,000 population are ex-service community, which amounts to 43,500 residents. £106,000 of the total money has been awarded to the County Council, which will be spent on a project support worker for two years who will help link up veterans over the age of 65 with local projects and activities to help them be more active in their community. The funding will support these projects, which could include a war memories archive, projects which link veterans with younger generations, or a befriending service to reduce social isolation and get more out of later life. The Council will also be working with local veteran services to identify and guide vulnerable veterans to services and activities in their communities.

practical and emotional support to aged veterans, their immediate family and carers when receiving medical care. The service will concentrate on the central Nottinghamshire area where there is a high concentration of veterans. Councillor Keith Girling, the Council’s Armed Forces Champion, said: “Older veterans are often at higher risk of mental health problems due to their service experiences, which can increase if they become socially isolated in older age. “We hope this funding will help offer veterans meaningful activities and support to reduce the risk of social isolation and improve their mental health and wellbeing.” Abby Dryden, Head of Business Operations at DMWS, said: “We are expert in the provision of Medical Welfare and have supported the Armed Forces Community during medical treatment since 1943. “To optimise patient outcomes we leverage our strong network with our partners. We are looking forward to working alongside Nottinghamshire

County Council and the Alzheimer’s Society.”

The local Oxjam team are excited to announce that for the seventh year running Beeston will be hosting the very popular and successful Oxjam Music Festival this autumn, with CP Walker as a stage sponsor, and headline sponsorship from The Star Inn Beeston – Nottingham CAMRA LocAle Pub of the Year 2017. What is Oxjam? Oxjam is a major fundraiser for Oxfam and also the UK’s largest music festival. Taking place in towns and cities across the UK, volunteers celebrate music in their local communities by organising their own events in aid of Oxfam. Beeston is firmly on the Oxjam map having raised over £60,000 all for Oxfam, and ranking in the top 3 Oxjam fundraisers for the last 3 years.The Oxjam Beeston journey - a success story for the whole community.Since 2011 Beeston has built up the festival from nothing to a very successful community event of which the town is very proud. Over the years several hundred artists have performed, all for free, including local successes, chart topping St Raymond, The Voice finalist Lia White, as well as others who have gone on to play at Glastonbury Festival. Equally important to Oxjam Beeston is the generosity of residents, organisations and businesses in the local community eager to give their time, resources or skills to this worthwhile cause. Something for everyone - Oxjam “The Takeover” Saturday 14th October 12 hours of live music from more than 80 acts in bars, cafes and other venues throughout Beeston town centre. Beeston will be alive with bands, vocalists, choirs, and singer-songwriters, bringing you an eclectic mix of music - from indie to Americana, folk to DJ, acoustic to rock, and more.

68

Operatic Oxjam, Saturday 14th October, 7pm Beeston Parish Church The programme will include pieces by Mozart, Bizet, Verdi and Mendelssohn, performed by the Il Bel Quattro vocal quartet with the Beeston Oxjam Chamber Orchestra, conducted by Derek Williams and lead by Richard Laing. Classical Oxjam, Saturday 11th November, 6.30pm Beeston Parish Church. With a loose interpretation of the term “classical”, previous Classical Oxjam evenings have featured Led Zeppelin pieces arranged for strings and harp, a Beach Boys song, as well as music by Bach, Mozart and so on. Each year we aim to bring you something different - last year it was Indian classical on sarod and tabla. This year we hope to feature an innovative ensemble performing a mixture of jazz and world music, as well as piano, strings and mixed ensembles playing a varied programme of music to appeal to all. Oxjam Ceilidh, Friday 24th November, 7.30pm Royal British Legion Once again Beeston will be jigging, reeling, shimmying and do-si-do-ing the night away to the foot stamping, toe tapping music of the Beeston Ceilidh Collective. This is a popular event for all ages, and with the humour and patience of Steve Benford to guide you through the dances, it doesn’t matter if you don’t know what to do; in fact it’s probably even more fun if you don’t! Want to get involved? Does your band want to take part? Would you or your business like to be a sponsor? Could you be a volunteer at the Takeover? Please contact us via www. oxjambeeston.org or Facebook - Oxjam Beeston Music Festival.

The past fifteen years has seen the Red Hot Chilli Pipers become the most famous bagpipe band on the planet…ever!

The band’s achievements have reached incredible heights with their ground breaking fusion of traditional Scottish music and rock/pop Anthems which they proudly call “Bagrock”. The Red Hot Chilli Pipers are a genuinely unique experience. The Chilli’s have never been more in demand for their infectious style of feel good music which appeals right across the age range to people all over the world. They have collected together an impressive group of musicians from Scotland andfurther afield, many holding World Championship titles and all seriously good players with impressive credentials and qualifications.

IN YOUR TOPPING UP COMMUNITY FOR SAFE PLAY IN BROXTOWE TOPPING UPSUMMER FOR SAFEHOLIDAYS PLAY IN BROXTOWE. WITH THE in full swing, Broxtowe Borough Council is ensuring its parks are safe by topping up the bark surface on all of its play areas. Approximately 75 tonnes of additional play bark will be added to the Council’s 34 play areas to ensure that children have a cushioned surface if they fall around the play area.

“Safety is a priority at these much loved play areas and the additional bark will help ensure that our young residents can enjoy some fresh air and play time and parents can be reassured,” said Councillor Martin Plackett, Vice Chair of the Leisure and Environment Committee, who went along to help the Parks Team install the bark at Queen Elizabeth Park in Stapleford and Mansfield Road Recreation Ground in Eastwood. Play bark is a natural woodland product and is sourced sustainably. The top up is part of the annual play area maintenance programme. For more information, please contact Broxtowe Borough Council on 0115 917 3174, email grounds@broxtowe.gov.uk or visit www.broxtowe.gov.uk/parks to find your nearest play area.
