Baby-snatch horror Tenerife mother reveals how child was taken from her and ‘gifted’ to new family TWO separate babystealing episodes have shocked Spain this week, including an incredible tale from Icod! During General Franco’s reign, from October 1936 until his death in November 1975, young children were often snatched from families who were deemed to be politically dangerous. These kids were then “gifted” to childless citizens as a reward. The first one concerns an 80-year-old nun from Madrid who is the first person to be officially charged with what is understood to be as many as 1,500 stolen or trafficked babies. And the horror story took a local twist this week when Nieves Machado Hernandez, a resident of Icod, told the press she was convinced her “dead” son was stolen and sold on the day of his birth in 1968. She says that the baby was taken from the old Civil Hospital in Santa Cruz as one of the “Franco” babies. Carmen Almendral, Chief Prosecutor of Santa Cruz, has taken her statement, which is said to be one of 70 based on similar accusations. But Enrique Vila, a Barcelona lawyer who specialises in adoptions, believes there could be as many as 300,000 similar cases. That figure represents around 15% of the number of adoptions in Spain from 1960 to 1989. Judge Adolfo Carretero opened the historic trial on Wednesday and charged María Gómez Velbuena an 80-year-old nun with “the illegal detention for the

purposes of stealing a newlyborn baby”. It is the first time in Spain that a judge has opened such a “stolen babies” case and charged the person who is alleged to have taken the child. Velbuena will appear in court on Thursday but her lawyer says she may not attend as she is ill and frail. However, Spanish law says a judge can take a legal statement from an accused’s home. This case revolves around the story of María Luisa Torres, who claims that the nun, known as ‘sor María’, took her newly-born daughter in 1982, just days after she had given birth in the now-defunct Santa Cristina clinic in Madrid. The child is now a 30 year old woman called Pilar. Mother and daughter were reunited eight months after a lengthy search by Torres’ other two daughters. Torres explained that she had never looked for her child because she feared the nun so much. She had been told by the accused that she was taking the child because she (Torres) was an adulterer. The nun also said that if Torres denounced her, she would take another of her daughters. Torres told TV station Antena 3 that the nun said: “I’m taking this one away, and I can take the other one, too. And then you’ll go to jail.” The story of Spanish stolen babies is not new. Last year, there were hundreds of stories of similar scandals, and this led Pilar to ask her “adotive mother” questions about her natural parents. Her adopted parents took her to see Velbuena, and it

is alleged the nun told them that Pilar’s mother had been a prostitute. Meanwhile, Torre’s other daughters began a search for their missing sister and, thanks to a TV programme, the families made contact. Subsequent DNA tests proved the link. Torres said afterwards: “Finding my daughter means I can finally rest in peace.” It is feared that this case could just be the tip of the iceberg. Investigators are looking at hundreds and

hundreds of other cases involving missing children, many of whom have links with Velbuena. The Attorney General and Justice Minister have both said these cases have the utmost and urgent priority. It is understood that these vile Franco practices continued with poor families or fatherless children. The young, recently-born kids were then sold to wealthy parents. The National Association of People Affected by Irregular

Adoptions (Add) believe they have evidence of 42 cases in Tenerife of alleged baby theft, and that there is strong evidence this number is could be closer to 70. Almendral has confirmed that early investigations have been hard since a lot of official paperwork has disappeared. Hernandez claims that on 5th August 1968, she was transferred from Icod to Santa Cruz as there were complications with the twins she was carrying. Once transferred, she began

to have contractions and, subsequently, gave birth to two children. The babies were instantly removed and she was not allowed to see them. When she complained, she says a nurse snapped: “You came to have a child and you will leave with one child.” Hernandez says she was later told by a doctor that one of the babies, a boy, had died and she was not responsible for the burial. She then requested and was refused a birth and death certificate after being told that they were not required. It seems that there is no documentation to prove there was a second child, but this, of course, backs up the claim in a strange way. Interestingly surviving daughter Mary Machado Gonzalez Nieves had a few health problems as a toddler. A few months after her birth, a doctor examined her and noted that the mobility problem she had in her arm was most probably a result of “the fetus developed with the arm behind the back for much of the gestation. That fetal position, he said, “was common in twin births”. The final twist occurred in 1979. A family friend from Icod confessed on his deathbed about a story from his time at the Civil Hospital. The friend told how doctors and nurses spoke of how a rich, childless couple from Santa Cruz had taken delivery of a new-born baby in exchange for a large sum of money. He said he had to tell this story before he died and that he had kept quiet for fear of reprisals surround what had happened during August 1968.

Reliving the Passion of Jesus - in Adeje! IN recent years, the municipality of Adeje has become a “must” for those wishing to relive the Passion of Jesus. And that’s why up to 10,000 people will pour into the town today (Good Friday) to witness a magnificent theatrical production. Every year since 1996, a group of 300 residents stage a Good Friday play of great realism, in which every detail is taken care of to recreate the sacred history, and it is made easy to understand for all ages. Calle Grande, in the heart of the municipality, becomes a Via Crucis for a few hours with a show that combines popular devotion and artistic admiration. The 300 amateur actors, mostly living in the town, organise and direct street scenes of the vital, final hours of Jesus of Nazareth, from the

time he comes to the olive garden of Gethsemane with his Apostles, to the Last Supper before his crucifixion. Such is the renown this theatrical recreation has acquired nationally and internationally that its live broadcast is a must-see for those who cannot travel to the town, as well as becoming

a showcase for tourism promotion overseas. This year, TV Canarias will be sending the live signal and distributing it to other operators interested in such a cultural event, which on average attracts more than 10,000 spectators. Adeje is aware of the importance of maintaining and restoring a tradition of social and religious significance at Easter. It is acts like this that help to unite the society and build bridges of unity and solidarity. Parallel to the growth of the town and the creation of new parishes, the Holy Week acts

have been radiating from the Church of St Ursula, and have enhanced different areas of the municipality. If the representation of the Passion catches people’s attention, even more so do the images of the procession in the town. Adeje has made great artistic and devotional steps, among which are The Christ of Humility and Patience every Holy Wednesday. leaving St. Ursula Church in the direction of Los Olivos.This procession, in particular, appears in the Casa Fuerte Directory and has been held live since the 17th Century - and on the same route: from the Franciscan convent to the Olive garden. The face of Christ has Indian features, so it is believed that his origin is American Images that stand out greatly are La Dolorosa, El Nazareno, San Juan Evangelista, El Señor Cautivo and La Esperanza, the latter two being incorporated recently. La Piedad is another piece of great popular devotion, especially with seniors, in the Good Friday procession. Both old and young have contributed to enhancing Easter Week in the municipality, so get there early today if you want a good position.

Police arrest ‘bogus’ beauty clinic doctor JUST one month after Adeje’s International Beauty Life celebrated its first anniversary, the “doctor” who runs the clinic has been accused of being a fraud. Daniele T, who claims to be a doctor of medicine and surgery was arrested by the National Police last Friday at the Callao Salvaje centre and questioned overnight. The 39-year-old Italian was released on Saturday after being named as a formal suspect (imputed) on counts of criminal deception, falsification of public documents, masquerading as a doctor, and committing acts against public health. Judge Nelson Díaz Frías, at the Arona Court, rejected public prosecutor requests to remand him in custody, although his passport has been confiscated while the case is investigated, and he must report to the police every Friday. Yet Daniele T’s lawyer insists his client was released without bail, and that the prosecutor failed to prove that

anyone had been cheated. Placido Alonso Peña said the “doctor” has been charged on suspicion of “professional intrusion” only, and he added that the police had not provided any documentation to support the accusations. Three former patients at the clinic, who were treated by the Italian, are believed to have denounced the doctor to the National Police. And it is also alleged that there have been several complaints of fraud amounting to almost 700,000 euros, according to police sources. The incident is said to have shocked staff at the private health centre in Callao Salvaje, which specialises in cosmetic surgery. But it intends to remain open. A statement issued by the company group read: “This does not affect in any way the rest of the staff at the centre. They are continuing with their work, with no links or connection to what has occurred.” Rodrigo Martín, President of the Provincial College of Doctors, told local press: “While we do have to wait for justice to be seen to be done, this case is the most serious I have come across in my time as president.”

A word from our editor

Playa de Ajabo A weekend of – end in sight showers and DIY Email: editor@canarianweekly.com

EASTER, aside from the religious ceremonies and being a coveted time for chocoholics is renowned for being the start of the ‘DIY season’ plus prompting many a discussion about the weather! In the UK this weekend any parts will experience milder conditions this after winter weather brought major disruption to parts of the country. It’s forecast that rain and drizzle will replace the snow and ice that caused power cuts to around 90,000 homes across northern England over the past two days. Northern Powergrid said 25,000 customers across Northumberland, west County Durham, the North Yorkshire Moors and West Yorkshire were without power during Wednesday afternoon. By the evening, that number had fallen to 8,000. Ice brought down electricity cables after strong winds and snow combined to cause 7ft drifts on exposed higher ground. In Spain Holy Week is set to be a washout. The Spanish Met. Office (AEMET) has forecast unsettled weather for virtually the whole of mainland Spain, the Balearic Islands and the Canaries until the weekend when more settled conditions are going to move into most of the country, although the rain will still most likely persist in the extreme north. Rain, albeit only in the form of light to moderate showers, is expected in the Canary Islands. The forecast for today, Good Friday, shows cloudy skies, the Canaries will also see some light rain in the north of the islands. Temperatures will remain low in the Canaries. On Saturday the Canary Islands will see north-easterly winds and the possibility of some light showers in the westernmost islands. Temperatures will rise slightly during the course of the day.

From Sunday onwards AEMET has said the weather will remain the same in the Canary Islands. Easter traditionally marks the beginning of DIY season. But, it is estimated that each year, more than 200,000 people go to A&E in the UK after being injured during DIY, maintenance or gardening at home. Thousands of people end up in hospital over the Easter weekend following accidents with non-powered hand tools, electrical tools, lawnmowers etc. Sheila Merrill, RoSPA’s public safety adviser, said: “Over-ambition and lack of knowledge are among the main causes of DIY accidents, and we advise people to be honest about their abilities. Accidents happen more easily when you are unprepared and in a rush, so think through the tasks you intend to do before you start work. “Tackling a job that is too difficult could not only result in an injury, but could also mean you have to pay a tradesperson to rectify an unsuccessful attempt turning your efforts to save money into an expensive - and perhaps painful mistake.” Other DIY and gardening safety tips include: stop and disconnect all electrical appliances and tools before repairing/cleaning them; only use tools/materials/ products in accordance with their instructions; when working with power tools, use an RCD (residual current device) if your home is not already wired with one; avoid falls from height by checking a ladder’s condition before use; keep children and pets away from where you are working; keep products in their original containers. So, what ever you’re doing this weekend, wherever you are, enjoy yourselves and be safe. Until next week...

RE-MODELLING of the beach in the heart of Callao Salvaje will be completed soon after Easter. When final acceptance will be requested from the Provincial Coastal Service under the Ministry of Rural and Marine Environment and the Municipality of Adeje so that the public space can be used and enjoyed by residents and visitors alike. Adeje Mayor, José Miguel Rodríguez Fraga, visited the site to check the status of the project and welcomed the prompt completion of the works, responding to the resident’s claim that the area

needed to be revitalized from the point of view of tourism and trade. The preparation work, recovery and restoration of the Ajabo beach had a budget close to 1.8 million euros, which was accounted for entirely by the Ministry of Environment and Rural and Marine Affairs, through the Department of Sustainability of the Coast and Sea. The original project began on March 2nd, 2006 and was finally adopted on April 30th, 2009 by the Ministry of Environment. The tender was published in the Government Gazette on 20th January 2010 (BOE 17/2010). On October 20th, 2010 it was awarded to the company Corsan-Corvian Construction, SA ( 1.2 million

euros). The official ceremony of laying the first stone was on the 14th December of that year construction began on January 10th, 2011. The work has consisted of improving the bathing areas and rest areas along the coast and the provision of services

required to meet demand in Callao Salvaje and around the municipality. Moreover, new viewpoints and rest areas have been installed. Also a square of 106 square meters, with beach facilities and a kiosk-bar of 20 square meters.

Arona's leading businessmen get seal of approval

Marathon success MIGUEL Angel Vaquero and Lourdes Gonzalez, were the winners of the 16th annual of the Las Galletas Half Marathon last weekend. Miguel Angel Vaquero (Tenerife CajaCanarias) in the male category came in with a time of 1.09.47, and Lourdes González (Unicaja Jaén) in the female category

with a time of 1.23.23. Jose Hernandez (from Trivalle CajaCanarias with a time of 36.55) and Ainhoa Vargas (from Tenerife CajaCanarias with a time of 48.25) were proclaimed the winners in the simultaneous 10 k race. A total amounting to 9,000 euros of prizes were distributed Of the 850 enrolled, 800 athletes participated in the event, that has become, over the years, a regional

sports reference, as pointed out by the mayor and the councillor of Sports in Arona, Jose Alberto González Reverón and Monica Sierra, respectively, who were responsible for handing out awards to the winners of this sporting event, approved by the Spanish Athletics Federation, along with the Minister of the Cabildo Insular de Tenerife, Jesus Morales. The weather was ideal in addition, a large audience

was present in Las Galletas to encourage participants. The Sports Board of Arona organized the event in collaboration with the Cabildo of Tenerife, the General Directorate of Sports of the Canarian Government, private companies, ADAE, the training cycle of Physical and Sports Activities of the IES Las Galletas and the School of Nursing and Physiotherapy of the University of La Laguna.

BUSINESSMEN and women gathered at a special meeting called by Arona Council to recognise the input to the town of Pedro Suárez and José Fernando Cabrera. Mayor José Alberto Gonzalez Reveron said: “They have had a fundamental role in the economic development of Arona and the entire southern region. “Both have shown great commitment, unmatched in general and particularly regarding this region.” The Mayor said the idea to recognise the two businessmen publicly came about when they both stepped aside from their presidential positions in ASHOTEL and CEST. The event, held at Valle San Lorenzo’s cultural centre, was attended by a large audience. Among them were leading figures from Tenerife’s business and political world, including Paulino Rivero, President of the Canary Islands. Tenerife Cabildo VicePresident Carlos Alonso, who was also there, said: “These

two men are an example of continuous effort.” Pedro Suarez, who has lived in the Arona area since 1957, was originally from La Gomera. He began training professionally in the construction sector in the south of Tenerife some 46 years ago. In 2001, he became President of the prominent organisation CEST (the Association of Businessmen of Southern Tenerife) and he says of the group: “It arose from the need to create a union for the south of the Island to be valued economically, socially and culturally. “That’s because this region produces the largest share of wealth and welfare in the province, and probably in the region.” José Fernando Cabrera has been closely linked to tourism as President of ASHOTEL in Santa Cruz, La Palma, La Gomera and El Hierro, between 2006 and 2011, and his only aim is to “improve the biggest industry of our town and of the Island by extension - none other than tourism.”

demands for improvement, especially regarding the information to users and the strengthening of some lines. During 2011, over 19,000 people used the line 468, so far the only urban line which covers the route Parque La Reina, Guargacho, Las Galletas, El Fraile, Palm

Mar, Guaza, Parque La Reina, launched to address the mobility needs of the inhabitants of the nearby towns. They also asked representatives of TITSA public transport to cover the inner zone of Costa del Silencio (Calle Diana, Té and

Minerva), as currently there is no such service, so TITSA is to study the feasibility of changing the routes of existing lines by covering this demand. González Reverón and Afonso Esquivel also raised the possibility of increasing the number

of accessible buses that serve the municipality, thereby strengthening the construction of ‘Arona for All’, referring to when the city was awarded the Reina Sofia prize of Accessibility. As for the need to increase and improve information channels of service in relation to visiting users, representatives of TITSA have reached an agreement with Turismo de Tenerife, and from now on tourist

offices will provide all the information about routes and schedules. Representatives of both sides agreed to form a working group, to have regular meetings to monitor how the service develops, stating that public transport in Arona is of “vital importance”, taking into account the municipality’s tourism and their geographic dispersion.

Millions of euros are hoarded over here in dodgy bank accounts TENERIFE is rife with black money, with Santa Cruz said to have 4,586.6 million euros hidden by companies in “B accounts”. The capital city is ranked second only to Madrid (24,204,000m) in the Spanish tax-evasion stakes, with the Canary Islands totalling more than 11,650,000m euros. In addition, Tenerife’s underground economy accounts for 35.9% of gross domestic product (GDP), which is another serious blow to the economy here. Leading the black market chart is Madrid with a staggering 24,204,000 illegal euros banked, followed by Barcelona (21,338,000m), Valencia (8,868,000m) and Alicante (5,689,000). With this enormous revenue deficit in mind, the Government declared an amnesty in Wednesday’s State Budget. An amnesty scheme by the previous Spanish government proved to be a resounding flop. Employers were exempt from

paying penalties, but were told they had to pay outstanding contributions since January 2011. They didn’t! Now, though, Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy is setting his sights on tax fraud. Citizens and businesses will be told they have until 30th November to declare their black money, in exchange for paying just 10% tax. Immediately after that date the Government will toughen penalties for those tax fraudsters who do not comply. Cristobal Montoro, the Minister of Finance, expects the two schemes to raise a total of 2,500m euros for the Treasury. He also argues that the tax amnesty will enable him to control future tax increases. But some academics say the amnesty is unfair because it breaks the principle of tax equity and will serve only to encourage fraudsters and offend taxpayers who comply with the Treasury. “Fiscal offences are rinsed at bargain prices,” says Gestha, the tax inspectors’union, which estimates that more than 70% of Spanish fraud comes from great wealth and corporations.

Successful fishing trip GRANADILLA Councillor Esteban Gonzalez, and representatives of the Fishermen’s Association of Los Abrigos, recently travelled to La Palma to visit the fish market that directly manages the Fishermen’s Association ‘Nuestra Señora de las Nieves’ to learn about the management model of direct selling of fish in a market and the possibility of transferring this knowledge to the future fish market planned for Granadilla. Esteban Gonzalez explained that “the visit has allowed them to spot a management model that could be applied to the future project of Los Abrigos, an infrastructure that will enable fishermen of this village, the possibility of a direct selling market allowing new generations of families that have traditionally been devoted to the sector in the municipality to continue.” The councillor said that, “given the current economic situation in the fishery sector of the municipality, we need continued support from

Page 10

the local administration, prioritizing actions like these that promote employment and maintain jobs that already exist.” He added that the auction will also be used “to stimulate economic activities in the rest of the town, known for some time as ‘The South Dining Room’ for its wide and varied cuisine specializing in seafood.” Local Development has undertaken several initiatives over the past four years to boost the catering industry through culinary improvement plans, days of blue fish, tapas routes, etc. to which must also be added Costabona employment workshops to develop young people in the sector.

González is satisfied with the results of the visit, the objective “has been amply covered by both the important work that directly develops the Fishermen’s Association in the direct sale of fish from its partners as the information received, which will serve to making the fish market a success. “ For the Agency for Employment and Local Development of the City of Granadilla de Abona, the development of this project will be important in organizing professional training activities appropriate for the population of the municipality interested in working in the fisheries sector.

‘Most wanted’ man is Man accused alleged arrested in Amsterdam over car hijacking

A ‘gun-for-hire’ gangster has been arrested in Amsterdam after nine months on the run from British justice. Kirk Bradley, 26, was on the ‘Most Wanted’ list after escaping from a prison van in Manchester during his trial last summer. In his absence he was convicted and jailed for life, with a minimum sentence of 22 years.

06 April - 12 April 2012

Bradley was held last night after detectives tracked him down and armed police raided a luxury flat in the Bijlmer region of the Dutch capital. He had fled the van along with co-defendant Anthony Downes - who was arrested two months ago, also in Amsterdam. Both are now awaiting extradition to the UK. Ian Milne, head of European Operations for the UK’s Serious Organised Crime Agency (Soca), said, “Like

his partner-in-crime Tony Downes discovered just a few weeks ago, there is no such place as a safe haven. Bradley had no idea we were on to him. Bradley and Downes escaped from a prison van driving them to court in Liverpool in July, leading to the aborting of their trial for orchestrating a campaign of gun and grenade attacks on rivals in Merseyside. A jury in a retrial in their absence convicted them and a judge sentenced

them to life, saying they must serve at least 22 years before they would be eligible for parole. Bradley was wearing flipflops, shorts and a T-shirt when officers raided his apartment. He is expected to be returned to the UK to serve a life jail term for leading an underworld gang responsible for a series of shootings, and leaving a hand grenade on the front wall of Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish’s home.

A 44-year-old will appear in court charged with robbery, two counts of kidnap and possession of a knife after an alleged carjacking in Birmingham. Cedric Brown was arrested after a young mother’s car was allegedly taken with her two toddlers still strapped in the back seats. He will appear in custody at Birmingham Magistrates’ Court. Police say they were called to the Slade Road area of Erdington just before 11am on Tuesday following reports of a burglary in progress. Three men were spotted

running from a suspected getaway car and were chased by officers. It is understood one of the men dragged a female driver out of a Ford Focus and sped away with her one-yearold son and two-year-old daughter in their child seats. West Midlands Police Sergeant Nicholas Barnes said neither of the toddlers had been hurt. “We quickly reunited them with their mum who naturally was extremely relieved,” he added. Two other men, a 19-yearold from Perry Common and an 18-year-old from Bromford, who were also arrested have been released on police bail.

City trader arrested by regulators A CURRENCY trader who hit the headlines for spending £125,000 on a single bottle of champagne has been arrested by City regulators. Alex Hope, 23, who promotes himself as a foreign exchange expert, was held over a suspected unauthorised foreign exchange scheme. Hope, who has a flat in east London’s Docklands, gained significant publicity last month after he apparently splashed £200,000 on drinks at a Liverpool nightclub. The bar bill was said to have included a £125,000 on a Nebuchadnezzar bottle of Armand de Brignac champagne. He has created his own YouTube showreel, in which he tells the camera: “You don’t see a lot of people my age in the City doing what I do. On the video he describes himself as “definitely ambitious”, adding: “My goal

isn’t just to make a lot of money for myself and set up a business but to also create jobs for others.” He has claimed he discovered his interest in currency trading while still a teenager and working at Wembley Stadium. The Financial Services Authority said it, assisted by the City of London Police, searched an address in east London on Tuesday and arrested a man on suspicion of offences under the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 and the Fraud Act 2006. An FSA statement said: “No one has been charged at this stage in connection with the FSA’s investigation, which is ongoing. “No further details can be confirmed at this time. The arrest is not linked to any other FSA investigations.” A message on Hope’s website, alexhopefx.com, says it has been suspended.

Whale App

CONSERVATIONISTS are hoping a new iPad and iPhone app that warns ships when whales are nearby will help save an endangered species from extinction.

The Whale Alert app, available for free download, uses global positioning system and other technology to transmit the latest available data about the movements of right whales, which live in the North Atlantic. Marine authorities estimate there are only 350 to 550 of the mammals left in the world. It is hoped the system will limit the number of deadly collisions they suffer with ships, especially larger craft, such as cruise and container ships.

When whales are detected in an area, vessels can alter course slightly or slow down. “Right whales are an iconic species for those who live on the coast of Massachusetts and the Northeast US,” said Patrick Ramage, director at the International Fund for Animal Welfare in Yarmouth Port, Massachusetts. “In a region where for generations New Englanders have harnessed technology to find whales and kill them. Now, in the 21st century, we are harnessing technology to find them and save them.”

Collisions with vessels killed more than one third of the right whales which were reported dead between 1970 and 2007. The app was developed for Apple’s iPads and iPhones by EarthNC, which specialises in spatial mapping systems for the leisure boating community. The project is a joint effort between NOAA and other US government agencies, including the National Park Service and the Coast Guard, universities, and conservation groups.

Tanker talks trundle on AS WE go to print talks aimed at ending the fuel tanker drivers’ dispute with employers are resuming this morning (Friday) after they were called to a halt in the early hours. The conciliation service Acas, which is hosting the meetings between the Unite union and seven distribution companies, says talks were adjourned at 1am. Health and safety and terms and conditions are the focus of the dispute. The row has been brewing for more than a year but it flared up last week when Unite announced workers in five firms had voted to strike. The Government advised motorists to top up with fuel before later backtracking, and many forecourts around the UK saw long queues

Page 14

even though no strike date has been set. Many garages even ran out of supplies. Unite will have to give seven days’ notice of any walkout. Before the talks started the union’s general secretary Len McCluskey said: “For nearly two years, we have been trying to persuade the fuel distribution sector to work with us to defend best practice across the industry.

“It is vital that common, minimum standards on safety, training, wages and pensions are agreed to put a floor of best practice in the sector.” Hoyer, one of the firms involved in the dispute, says it shares “fundamental areas of agreement” with Unite over the need to “harmonise” health and safety standards across the industry.

Tax credit bombshell UP to a million families each stand to lose an average of £511 a year under tax and benefit changes, according to research. Anti-poverty campaigners dubbed the start of the financial year Bad Friday, warning cuts totalling more than £2bn were taking effect over the Easter weekend. Shadow chancellor Ed Balls said the impact calculated by the Institute for Fiscal Studies (IFS) was proof of a “tax credits bombshell” with up to a million households losing eligibility entirely. “Families on middle and low incomes are this weekend facing a tax credits bombshell from David Cameron and George Osborne,” he said. “For all the Government’s talk about increasing the personal allowance, these independent figures show that while they may be giving with one hand they are taking much more away with the other.” Labour pointed to Government figures suggesting more than 850,000 families stood to lose their child tax credit - worth around £545 per year - from the start of the financial year. Another 212,000 couples

Page 16

on less than £17,000 a year would lose working tax credit unless they were able to increase their hours of employment, the opposition said. Child Poverty Action Group chief executive Alison Garnham said: “Some of the poorest working families will lose thousands of pounds from their annual income, leaving them in a desperate struggle to pay for basics like groceries, clothes and household bills.” As political sniping continued over the effects of last month’s Budget, the Treasury retorted by claiming the average household would be £6.50 a week better off. More than 15 times as many would see an improvement to their finances than would be worse-off thanks to an increase in income tax allowances, Economic Secretary Chloe Smith said. “We’re taking millions out of tax altogether by raising the personal allowance, which will put up to £126 cash back in people’s pockets,” she said. “The basic state pension is also going up by its largestever cash sum and there are increases in most other benefits.”

Henson sacked RUGBY player and reality TV star Gavin Henson has been sacked by the Cardiff Blues over drunken antics on a plane and banned from using the airline. The father of singer Charlotte Church’s two children was dismissed by the club following his behaviour on a flight back from Glasgow on Saturday morning. Blues chief executive Richard Holland said in a statement: “The Cardiff Blues management have discussed the matter at length but have acted swiftly since the incident occurred on Saturday morning. Henson quickly apologised for his behaviour, saying he was “truly embarrassed”, but it was insufficient to stop the Cardiff team protecting their commercial interests. Mr Holland added: “We have a duty to our supporters and sponsors to protect the good name of Cardiff Blues and those associated with our brand.” The 30-year-old, who won 33 caps for his country, has

also been banned from travelling on Flybe airline for six months. A Flybe spokesman said: “The safety of our passengers and staff is Flybe’s number one priority and, as such, the airline has a zero tolerance attitude to unruly behaviour on board our aircraft.” Well-groomed and welltanned, Henson increasingly carved out a showbiz career alongside his on-pitch performances over the past decade. He was photographed showing his bare six-pack, with strategically placed rugby balls shielding parts of his body. He actively promoted research into prostate and testicular cancer, and went naked to promote the cause. Henson separated from Church just weeks after announcing their engagement in May 2010. Church later claimed

his appearance on Arctic reality show 71 Degrees North helped cause the split because he had time to “sit back and reflect”. “I’d have loved to keep our family together for always,” she said. “But we both kind of knew it was inevitable and, rather than giving it another try, decided it was best to part when the kids were young.” Following the split, Henson delved further into reality TV with an appearance was on Strictly Come Dancing. In December 2010, he said on his blog: “Just a short note too thank you all for voting for me and keeping me in Strictly for So long, I really had a fantastic life changing time. I am now looking forwards to getting stuck into the rugby.” But it came with a transition from the Ospreys club to brief stints at both Saracens and Toulon. Last year, Henson starred in

The Bachelor, where young women vied for his romantic attention. Publicity for the show said: “Expect flirting, friction and fun as, in a romantic reality series filmed in some of the most glamorous locations in the world, 25 girls share a villa in Eastern Europe and compete for his affections.” Criticised for taking part, Henson addressed the complaints on his blog: “This filming did not affect my rugby commitments after being carefully structured to work around my rugby obligations. I am very excited to be involved in this massive show which will be a first for the UK.” In October, he joined the Cardiff Blues on an eightmonth contract, expressing gratitude for the chance to resurrect his rugby career, but Henson made little impact on-pitch. Henson has yet to address the latest incident on his website, and while some may enjoy the latest career controversy others will shake their heads as one of the most prodigious natural talents in the European game sinks to a new low.

Golf’s charity spectacular proves a winner all round GOLFERS from various local clubs, and two teams from the North, gathered to celebrate Golf del Sur’s 25th anniversary, and to give their support to a huge Charity Tournament there.

Live Arico News

It was the first of a series of anniversary events, and the reward for the bumper 44 four-man teams taking part in the Stableford match was a fabulous day on the course, and a whopping 4,130 euros collected for the White Fathers at Las Chafiras. John Twohig, last year’s club captain, suggested raising funds for the group of White Fathers’ monks, who care for physically and handicapped men. They receive little in the way of funding and John, who was the third captain in a row to offer donations from their regular Saturday competition, felt they were the worthiest local cause of all. But it was a massive task for the Golf del Sur club to attract enough outsiders to make it a special day to remember. It was left to stalwart Jim O’Connell to form an organising committee, and the challenge was met by current Club Captain Ken Ridge, Golf Director Maca Rodriguez and Commercial Manager Nelly Patiño, together with club members

Paul Hunt, John Twohig, Mike French and Joe Gaffey. Between them, they enticed players from the following clubs: Abama Golf, Amarilla Golf, Costa Adeje Golf, Las Americas Golf, Buenavista Golf and El Penon Golf (both from the North) and, of course, their own club members and Golf del Sur’s Spanish section. On top of that, they were tasked with finding cash donors and also prizes for an auction, run by Oasis Fm Dj Roscoe, whose smoothtalking, persuasive ways helped raked in 1,600 euros. Top auction prize of a two-day stay in La Gomera, with free travel, green fees, buggies and hotel came from the island’s Tecina Golf Club - a generous gesture considering they did not field a team. Support for the auction also came from The Golf Shop at Las Chafiras and

the Players’ Golf Shop, with local San Blas restaurants Gulliver’s, Tapas and Taboos, plus Titos (Los Abrigos), Wok’n Fire (Las Chafiras) and the Esmeralda Hotel. In addition, all the golf clubs involved offered green fees and other goodies. Tournament winners were the home club’s Juan Castilla Miro, Jose Diaz Moreno, Alfonso Lecina Blazquez and Jan Jose Placeres Marante, whose 108 points proved too good for all their opponents. They form part of the Ami Golf Society within the Golf del Sur Club, and it proved to be a procession because the next four teams also came from the Spanish group. But it wasn’t just about golf and charity-giving. Eventcatering specialists Bodas y Eventos Felidi laid on a buffetstyle picnic throughout the day for guests and

supporters, and the company rounded off proceedings with a magnificent evening barbecue, which began as the final teams came home. A delighted Jim O’Connell said: “It really was the perfect day, from start to finish, and I would like to thank everyone involved for the wonderful support we received. “These include the players, the organising committee, our sponsors, our own members for the extremely generous cash donations, and the Golf del Sur club for supplying all the trophies. Thanks also to Nelly, Ami captain Reiner Ditser and all our Spanish friends who took part.” And Brother Juan, on behalf of the White Fathers, not only explained the work undertaken by the monks but passed on their deep gratitude for the invaluable support given to the White Fathers by the club.

Get Xuxu and Bocka to the UK XUXU and Bocka are adorable. They came to the refuge together and have been stuck to each other like glue ever since. Sweet, yes - but impossible to rehome as a pair. So we believe we have found a solution by sending them to the UK to one of our supporters, who will endeavour to rehome them as

a pair. It’s a good plan, but we need to find around 1,100 euros to send them. They are on holiday at Poochies Pet Hotel until we find the money. And we DO need to find the cash. Can you help? Join Facebook page Get Xuxu and Bocka to the UK for more information and how to

Lions ABBA really did have good night A GREAT time was had by all at San Miguel Lions’ Club’s 60/70s ABBA night at The Dragons Denn in Costa del Silencio. An excellent buffet was provided by hostess Liz, and there was an impromptu ABBA show by Jan Munroe and Colin Stevens. Kris Richards provided the rest of the night’s music. It’s all hands to the pumps now for the Lions as they concentrate on planning their Disadvantaged Children’s Holiday, which starts on 3rd May for one week. The next event for the San Miguel club is their Presidents Night, on Saturday, 30th June, so make a date in your diary. Secretary and Vice-President Ralph Solomon, who will take over from his wife, Susan, as this year’s President

said: “On behalf of the members and supporters of our club, I would like to wish incoming Vice-President John McClusky a speedy recovery. “He has been very poorly over the last few weeks, but has still put in a shift for the club.”

In the mood: President Susan Solomon, complete with purple ABBA gear, glides across the floor in time to the music

It’s sweet music for K9’s loyal band of supporters AROUND 70 K9 members, supporters and volunteers descended on the Heritage Bar in Los Cristianos on Saturday for an afternoon of entertainment put on in their honour! The event was staged to give K9 an opportunity to say a warm and appreciative “Thank You” to all those who have assisted the animal refuge over the past few years. There was a Raffle, a huge Bottle & Teddy tombola, a Quiz with a Spanish theme to it and a Finger Buffet to complete the afternoon. Aidy Evans provided the musical entertainment throughout, and he was joined by Maisey for a song-

and-dance routine which left the audience shouting for more. Though the event was not intended as a fund-raiser, it is always an added bonus for the refuge when muchneeded funds are generated. And patrons also brought treats for the refuge dogs. A welcome surprise came with the presentation of a 700-euro cheque from Amarilla Golf Club, handed over by Club Captain Ian Sharp and accepted by K9 Kennel Manager Hazel Eames. The feedback suggested it had been a relaxing and enjoyable afternoon and should become an annual event. Thanks to everyone who supported the event, and to those who helped on the day. Special thanks to Dave and his staff at the Heritage Bar for creating a lovely atmosphere.

Classes have just got a little better for the kids STAFF at Accion del Sol, backed by German sponsors Aktiontier, are on a mission to educate children on animal welfare issues.

They decided that as well as visits by schoolchildren to the refuge and the popular Educational Roadshows, a permanent classroom was the way forward. Because of its continuous interest, discipline and continuity, the CEIP school at Parque de la Reina was selected to receive the first Animal Protection classroom on the Island. Last Friday (30th March) saw the official opening, when Headmaster Domingo Arias welcomed Arona’s Education and Culture Councillor Miguel Àngel Mendéz, Tourism and Health Councillor Francisco José Nziño Rodriguéz and Deputy Mayor Carmelo Garcia Martin. The school has 500 pupils, who will all benefit from this opportunity because their education will now include animal welfare, as well as environmental issues. Once this scheme is underway successfully, Accion hope to work out similar projects with other schools in the South. Back to refuge business, and five puppies were picked

up in Granadilla, dumped in a box near the bins, so its all hands on deck to feed these little ones every few hours, day and night. And that spells out a lot of sleepless nights at the centre. They are being

bottle-fed special milk, but it is no substitute for the mother’s milk, which is vital to them in their first few weeks. But hopefully, they will all survive. Another lucky dog has

found a new home with Tony, Eileen and Maggie, but the refuge still has 180 gorgeous dogs looking for loving homes. They would even welcome a walk down to the beach if adoption is to big a responsibility, so come on over to the refuge and make a few dogs happy. They love a walk and some special attention from the outside. On Easter Sunday, there is a fund-raising event at the Granadilla refuge which includes fun runs with your own dogs, an Easter Egg hunt for the children and much more. Call 922 778 630 for more information. The sanctuary is situated at the Granadilla Industrial Estate, Exit 51 on the TF1, directly next to the ITER windmills, which can be seen clearly from the motorway. The centre is open to the public from Monday-Friday (3-6pm).

Farewell to one of the good guys by Roscoe Last week the British community said goodbye to one of the island's most loved figures, David Whittaker, in a style which fitted the man. The Merry Monk was packed to the rafters from mid-afternoon until the very early hours as people marked David's passing with a massive party and fund-raiser, which raised over 1,200 euros for Cancer Research. David owned the Merry Monk in the Apolo Centre for many years and was immensely popular. He treated all his customers like friends and was never short of a wise word of advice, or time to listen. He was always smiling, quick with a joke (often a bad one!) and loved chewing the fat. I cannot remember a time when

06 April - 12 April 2012

I saw that he wasn't smiling or jovial.“Life's short kid. You can't take it with you so enjoy it.” He always called me Kid. A friend of mine summed David up beautifully. Many people will remember the band Outrun who played here in the 1990s.Lead singer Gareth Ralph was particularly close to David and was devastated at his passing:“When I lived there

he was like my Tenerife father,” he said. “He was so genuine and was there for me when I had a really tough time with my kids. I will NEVER forget his generosity and the fact that he cared so much. He was an amazing man.” The Merry Monk has always been a popular bar especially at Christmas when the famous decorations would become a Tenerife attraction themselves. David would spend weeks preparing and hanging the decorations which made the bar light up like Santa's Grotto. Over the years his children James and Charlotte became more hands-on with the bar and this enabled David to branch out his creativity and he opened Bloomers flower shop. David's passing was not a

surprise and neither was his last request for everybody to have a party and a good time. And boy did we do that! James and Charlotte would like to thank everyone who made it such a special day, especially Tony and Richard, who worked their socks off behind the bar. Porkies, Shires, Angus Steak House and Croquant Bakery for their help with the buffet. Chris Bryan, who compered all day and night and the multitude of acts who gave up their time, and in some cases cancelled paying gigs to attend. They were clearly overwhelmed by the support and love for their father, but they should haven't have been surprised. He was one in a million and like many, this kid will miss him.

Organiser Nancy Hall is slightly concerned that the recently-formed group, which meets at the Castañuelas restaurant every Saturday, is viewed as a club for “older people”. “But it definitely isn’t,” says Nancy (pictured bottom right). “We want to entice younger people to come along. It’s a really pleasant

evening, where strangers can get to know each other, and regulars can mingle with newcomers.” Two weeks ago, 29 members enjoyed a barbecue and live music during their Saturday wine-and-dine feast at the Castañuelas Numbers dipped to 15 on Saturday because Swallows and those on extended holidays have now gone home, but new faces are showing up each week. It costs just 10 euros a head for an excellent three-course meal and a half-bottle of wine, and further details can be obtained from Nancy on 655 679 033.

Cancer fund-raisers’ blossoming response! JULIE JEPHSON and her husband Dennis were overwhelmed by the generosity of everyone while on a holiday recently at Club Olympus Garden City, in Playa de Las Americas. They are members of the Marie Curie Rother Valley Fund Raising group in Sheffield, and raised nearly 50 euros by selling daffodil pin badges to raise awareness of the cancer care charity. All last month, people around the UK took part in a variety of activities to raise money for the charity’s Great Daffodil Appeal. Many simply bought a daffodil badge to show their support Julie and Dennis brought some badges over with them and sold the lot in a few days. “The generosity of the

staff and everyone else was fantastic,” said Julie. “Next year, we’ll bring lots more!” On behalf of Marie Curie, the couple also said a big thank-you to Mick Watkin and Stacy Lightfoot, who ran the Garden City pool bar and sold the badges there. They have since moved on to pastures new. In England, Marie Curie nurses make a huge difference to the lives of many people with terminal cancer and other related illnesses, and to their families. For more information about the Great Daffodil Appeal, please contact Julie on juliejephson@yahoo.co.uk For more information about Marie Curie Cancer Care and any other enquiries relating to the charity, please contact Liz Howlett, Marie Curie Community Fundraiser, on liz. howlett@mariecurie.org.uk or call 0044 114 2793010.

Benidorm ITV1, 9pm Last in the series, Joyce (Sherrie Hewson) is convinced that at last the hotel assessor has arrived. That coveted fourth star is within reach! Nothing must go wrong while Mrs Simmonds (Kate O’Mara) is in residence. Unwisely, Joyce has chosen this day to turf Kenneth (Tony Maudsley) out of his salon for the late payment of rent. Kenneth is furious - and he and Joyce have a running cat-fight which ends with them both in the hotel pool, and Kenneth minus his two front teeth. Mrs Simmonds sees it all, and to compensate for the poor impression created, Joyce offers her any service at the hotel - for free. Mrs Simmonds would like a manicure. So Joyce has to patch things up with Kenneth . Other guests at the hotel include Lennie (Anthony Denham) and Neville - two underworld figures who gave Donald (Kenny Ireland) a very hard time when he was in prison, and threaten the same now they’ve tracked him down in Benidorm. But Donald has agreed to help Sir Henry (Michael Fenton Stevens) - the British consul involved in Donald’s arrest for fraud, now down on his luck. And Sir Henry might just be able to help Donald too. Mick (Steve Pemberton) reveals to the rest of the Garveys that all the sunbed shops Mel left them have been destroyed by fire. And that’s not the worst of it. Madge (Sheila Reid) is bitterly angry and turns on Mick, but Michael (Oliver Stokes) denounces her. She’s just plain nasty, and always has been. Who exactly is Mrs Simmonds? How will Joyce cope when the real assessor reveals himself? And what can Michael do to bring the Garveys back together?

The One and Only Des O’Connor ITV1, 7:30pm ITV has commissioned ITV Studios to make a one off televised special with the much loved legendary entertainer Des O’Connor to celebrate 50 years in show business. This 90 minute prime time ITV1 show will be hosted by the great man himself, and feature a star studded mix of guests and stars from the worlds of comedy and entertainment. Des will be joined on stage by comedy genius Matt Lucas, the inimitable Paul O’Grady, award winning actress Katherine Kelly, much loved actor Robert Lindsay, Des’s on screen presenting partner Mel Sykes and many more. The show will also feature some exciting musical performances and a few surprises for Des along the way. Des said “I am really looking forward to sharing a fun filled 90 minutes with the viewers.” Des is firmly established as one of Britain’s most popular and best loved entertainers and is one of only a handful of British entertainers to be acclaimed internationally on stage and television. His variety chat show Des O’Connor Tonight ran for an amazing 25 years on British television and then followed with the award winning daily talkshow Des & Mel with co-host Melanie Sykes which proved such a hit with viewers that the show more than doubled its audience. Des’s American series was shown in over 40 countries, seen by 200 million people world-wide and on stage he has appeared at the MGM Grand in Las Vagas, The Sydney Opera House and over a 1000 times at the London Palladium.

The BAFTA-winning, Oscarnominated first in the series of claymations by Nick Park which introduced the world to everyone's favourite man and his dog. Wallace and Gromit blast off in a home-made rocket to test the theory that the moon is made of cheese, which of course it is. They meet a rather stroppy vending machine! Amazingly, actor Peter Sallis is now probably more famous as the voice of Wallace than for Last of the Summer Wine.

The feast will honour the hopes and achievements of the country's sporting heroes, and it will be a glorious celebration of Britain's culinary talents. This time it is the battle of the Scottish chefs - returning contender Alan Murchison and newcomers Colin Buchan and Mark Greenaway. All of them are determined to knock out their rivals in the race to the banquet. They kick things off with their starters, but which one is going to be first off the blocks? Will it be duck terrine and pineapple, braised pork cheek with sea buckthorn and hot apple jelly or smoked pigeon breast and heart? Great British Menu veteran Jeremy Lee decides who goes through to the judges.

W C CHOICE Great British Menu: The Olympic Feast BBC2, 7.30pm Great British Menu: The Olympic Feast will give some of the UK’s greatest chefs a once in a lifetime opportunity to create a very special feast which celebrates the London 2012 Olympic Games and showcases contemporary British cooking at its absolute best. For 2012 the chefs’ task is to create a menu that captures the Olympic spirit -food that is breathtaking and awe-inspiring. Every great Olympian pushes their discipline on to new levels of excellence and that’s the challenge for the 2012 Great British Menu chefs: can they create world-class, ground-breaking food that will celebrate the Olympic ideal? Over the next nine weeks, 24 of the finest chefs in the country will compete in eight regional heats for the opportunity to create a world-beating four course menu at a prestigious event at the Old Royal Naval College in Greenwich. British Olympic legend Sir Steve Redgrave will host the gala event with a glittering guest list of British sporting greats. Prue Leith, Oliver Peyton and Matthew Fort return to judge which chefs go through to the national finals and Olympic Feast banquet. Three chefs from each region - Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, north west, north east, central, London/south east and south west - will compete against each other preparing a four course meal fit for an Olympian to secure a place in the national finals. The chefs will also meet British Olympians past and present to share valuable tips on competing at the highest level - and of course to cook for them! The eight regional winners will then battle it out to prepare one of the four courses of The Olympic Feast. This week it’s the battle of the Scottish chefs: returning contender and former veteran Alan Murchison and newcomers Colin Buchan and Mark Greenaway, with Great British Menu veteran Jeremy Lee deciding who will go through to the judges on Friday. The chefs will also get an opportunity to meet Sir Matthew Pinsent to pick-up some tips from the British Olympic rowing legend. They kick things off with their starters, but which one is going to be first off the blocks? Will it be duck terrine and pineapple, braised pork cheek with sea buckthorn and hot apple jelly or smoked pigeon breast and heart?

W C CHOICE The Apprentice BBC1, 21:00

Junk Shops. Lord Sugar asks the teams to set up second-hand shops in London's fashionable East End, home to a thriving market in retro and refurbished household goods. The teams must source secondhand stock from auctions, junk shops and car boot sales, and resell at a profit during a one-day-sale from their respective shops. One team goes for quality, seeking just a few choice items, but even then one team member cannot curb his basic instincts and rifles through rubbish bins in a frantic bid for bargains. The other team go for quantity, filling their shop with brica-brac which they plan to upgrade with a lick of paint and a spot of upholstering. Day two sees the shops open to the public, and as one team's goods are snapped up their stock levels plummet and it looks increasingly unlikely that they will have enough to sell. In the other shop there is plenty to choose from, but customers do not buy into the team's creative efforts and sales take a desperate turn.

The Unforgettable Dick Emery ITV1, 19:30 In the 1970s, Dick Emery was one of the country's best-loved and most innovative comedians, creating a dazzling array of larger-than-life characters and catchphrases such as 'Oooh you are awful - but I like you!'. Friends and family - including his ex-wife, last girlfriend and two children - remember this charismatic, funny charmer.

Long Lost Family ITV1, 9pm DAVINA MCCALL and NICKY CAMPBELL return to ITV1 to present a brand new series of Long Lost Family, the show which traces and reunites family members who have been separated for most of their lives. Series two presents seven heart-warming new episodes, helping relatives reunite with the loved ones they have been desperately searching for in vain for many years. With the help and support of Davina and Nicky, each relative is guided through the exhaustive and emotional process of tracing the loved one they are so anxious to find. The searches often take unpredictable turns and series two sees Nicky journey to South Africa, Texas, France and Spain to bring families together again. On returning for a new series, Davina McCall said: “I’m over the moon to be back helping to reunite even more families. If you thought Series One was emotional, you’ve not seen anything yet. The stories we’ve unearthed this time round will tug at your heart-strings like never before. Get ready to start stockpiling those tissues!”

Get Your House in Order is the brand-new series featuring out-of-control consumers whose quality of life is being buried under their mounds of excessive, but potentially valuable possessions. On hand to help each case transform their lives are two experts; dealer of antiques and artefacts, Nick Allen who will sort through the clutter and determine what money can be made from the collections, and interior designer Abigail Ahern who uses the money raised to transform the homes and break the hoarding habit. From collectors of Dr Who memorabilia and dolls, to hoarders of electronic gadgetry and antique furniture, the weird and wonderful will be uncovered in this series. Behind the façade of a well maintained Cheshire two-bedroom apartment lives 59-yearold Ray Byrne, an out-of-control collector who is literally trapped by his own possessions. Ray has managed to collect everything over the years, from old clothes to retro gadgets and broken electrical equipment. But with not much space to keep it all, his hoard has taken over nearly every corner of his home. His living room, bathroom, balcony and bedroom are largely inaccessible because of the amount of junk, and he has been forced to sleep in a cramped corner on the living room floor. Embarrassed by the situation, Ray’s friend Julie is one of the few people who comes to his flat and she is desperate for him to get help. It’s a shocking sight for Nick and Abigail, but they are determined to try to give Ray his life back, When Ray’s hoard is taken to the warehouse, the scale of it is immense. Filling the space of three tennis courts, it includes: 1km of electrical cables; half a tonne of old clothes; two dozen TVs; 100 hi-fi separates; 70 odd speakers; and a mountain of old and broken computer equipment. The hoard is vast and contains mostly low-value items, so Nick will have his work cut out for him if he is to make enough money to pay for Abigail’s redesign - a gentleman’s club style interior which she hopes to get £2000 to complete. Luckily the discovery of some potentially valuable vintage cameras, telephones and military memorabilia gives Nick high hopes. Ray is ready to let a significant amount of his hoard go, so can Nick and Abigail to deliver and help Ray get his home and life back on track?

W C CHOICE Out of Africa: Ivory Wars BBC1, 21:00

With wildlife crime now thought to be second only to drugs in terms of profit, Rageh Omaar goes on the trail of the ivory poachers, smugglers and organised crime syndicates to investigate the plight of Africa's elephants. As demand for ivory rises in the Far East, this Panorama special - made jointly with the BBC's Natural History Unit goes undercover in central Africa and China to ask whether the African elephant can survive in some parts of the continent. Last year saw the highest number of large seizures of illegal ivory for over two decades despite a 23 year global ban on its international sale. One area of northern Kenya has lost a quarter of its elephants in the last three years largely due to poaching. Panorama visits an elephant orphanage to see the impact of the killing on the young and, with access to Interpol's largest ever ivory operation, confronts the dealers in Africa and in China now the world's biggest buyer of illegal ivory.

SUE MCDONALD Common Sense Furnishings Email: sue.mcdonald@canarianweekly.com

All in the best possible taste! SINCE our move to Parque Margarita, we have been inundated with people updating their properties. The property sales market is still relatively slow, obviously, although we definitely see signs of recovery. But many people are choosing to give their property a bit of a facelift, whether to make it easier to sell, just to update it, or because some items such as mattresses or sofas needed renewing. What was fashionable 20 years ago when we first started in the business can sometimes look outdated now. Together with natural wear and tear, particularly if the property is rented out, this means that many of the apartments we furnished originally are now are in need of some TLC. Many of them had busypatterned fabrics, and there was lots of matching going on with curtains and bedspreads from the same material. Swags and tails were the order of the day, with scoops of fabric and full-draped curtains. Much of the furniture we fitted all those years ago is still going strong, and we are now respraying a lot of sideboards, etc, in whites and creams to make everything look more modern - at a fraction of the replacement price.

Personally, I prefer the more simplistic styles of today, with eyelet curtains which use far less fabric, with only a slight wave instead of a full gather, and the use of roller blinds and Japanese panels. These are 5-6 flat panels of material, which can be pulled across the window to create a simple panel effect. The advantages of these types of window dressings means that they collect less dust, and they can be moved right off the window. This is an advantage here in Tenerife to reveal our lovely views and fresh air. We can also suggest other uses for window dressings. In Royal Palm, we have used Japanese blinds, not only at the windows but also to create a division between the sleeping and living areas of a studio. Likewise, as you can see in the photos, we have used rigid vertical blinds at a breakfast bar to section off the kitchen when not in use (and to hide those dirty dishes). Furniture styles have also

changed, from intricate designs to simpler cleaner lines. I have a friend who says that minimalism, (where everything, including items of furniture, decorative items, etc, are kept to an absolute minimum with no clutter) is for people who have no money and can’t afford to fill their rooms up! Mind you, he also says that antiques are for people who can’t afford to buy new stuff, so… At the end of the day, it’s all a question of taste, so whether you need a new mattress, to recover your sofa or respray your furniture, or to replace some curtains, call in to our showroom in Parque Margarita for an estimate without obligation, or give us a call and we will come to you!

Small is tasty for a balcony gardener FOR many people living in Tenerife – and, for that matter, in the UK there is no question of gardening or growing plants and vegetables. That’s because they don’t have gardens, of course, but it is still possible to grow your own food if you live in an apartment. It can be argued that there are advantages to this approach because small can be tasty. As a new gardener on a new allotment or in your back garden, it can be daunting working out how to lay it all out, where to grow what veg and when. But you can edge your way into it, adding more items to the grow-your-own list as space and time allow, depending on your available space. So what have you got? A patio, window ledge (indoors or out), window box or a small flower border? Perhaps the top of a wall, where you can balance some boxes of earth, or maybe an old galvanised bath? All have possibilities for growing, but not necessarily the same vegetables, so the more limited the space, the more carefully you must consider how to utilise it. In Vegetables for Small Gardens (Hamlyn £8.99), Joy Larkcom, crowned queen of the veg patch, invented what she called a VSR (Value for Space Rating) for vegetables. Only bean sprouts, mustard and cress, oriental saladini, winter purslane and rocket got four stars, which was her top rating. The ratings were based on two things: the amount of

space vegetables needed, and the length of time they occupied the space. Brussels sprouts, which take from 30-36 weeks to mature, get only one star, as does spring cabbage (30-32 weeks from seed to harvest). If you buy young plants rather than grow your own from seed, you can cut those times, but perhaps not enough to consider sprouts or cabbage. Salad crops would be top of my list to grow in a small space. By adding corn salad, komatsuna, mizuna and various leafy chicories and lettuce to the Larkcom fourstar list, you have endless possibilities for salads over a long season.

The bigger the container, the better the results – and the easier it will be to keep the salads growing smoothly. Use pots at least 30cm across, if you can. If you don’t have pots, collect wooden pallets (plenty of those dumped all over the south by builders) and build your own containers. Or look for wine boxes, polystyrene fish boxes

or wooden crates from the greengrocer. You must punch holes in the bottom of wine and fish boxes for drainage. Slatted greengrocer crates and your home-made boxes need to be lined with newspaper. The containers themselves can be lined up in any convenient place, along the top of a low wall, on a deck, on a balcony or, if there is enough light, they are often overhung. The biggest chore will be carrying compost to fill the containers. For a smooth succession of salad leaves, you need to sow a new potful every two weeks. When you have three or four containers on the go, you can chuck the contents of the first pot, refill it and put it back into the production line. Multi-purpose compost is lighter than the loam-based kind, but nutrients in a multipurpose compost will either have leached out or been used up by the plants within six weeks. After that, the crop will need feeding as well as watering. With leaf crops such as salads, you need a feed with plenty of nitrogen. Maxicrop, based on seaweed, gives good results. If you are growing relatively small amounts of cut-andcome-again, it is easiest to buy packets of readymixed seeds. In the UK, you can get oriental mixtures (Suffolk Herbs £1.45), spicy mixtures (Suffolk Herbs £1.45), continental mixtures (Thompson & Morgan £1.89), crunchy mixtures (Thompson and Morgan £1.89), stirfry mixtures (Thompson & Morgan £1.89), mesclun with rocket and chervil (DT Brown £1.19) or an Italian misticanza (Seeds of Italy £1.69).

Garden ramblings... THIS week I talked to a Canarian who is a farmer, obviously I asked what he grew and he told me just two things; pumpkins which he grows in Las Galletas and potatoes which are grown in Arico. I get very confused with potatoes he told me that there are three crops, spring, summer and winter but this

Page 38

year he would not have the mid crop due to the shortage of water and it was too expensive to buy the water needed. I asked him about growing here on the island and he said you can grow anything from now until winter. So get growing, think about what you’d like to grow, grab a pot, soil, seed – away you go. I know time is precious, plant veggies in raised beds, grow bags or containers. Why nit try the pick-and-

come-again varieties of salad leaves? Regular picking of salad plants’ outer leaves enables them to live longer, so you need to sow less often. Courgettes, beetroot and chard (which must grow well here as I’ve seen it at the Farmer’s market) are good growers. Plant pots with herbs like thyme, chervil, parsley, lemon verbena and sage near the kitchen door so you can cut quicker than you can find the pack of the dried version, plus they smell gorgeous.

UK hosepipe ban A widespread hosepipe ban has now come into force within the following areas of the UK:· Thames Water · Southern Water · South East Water · Anglian Water · Sutton and East Surrey · Veolia Water Central · Veolia Water Southeast Domestic customers face a £1,000 fine if they use their hosepipe in defiance of the ban, although water companies say they want to work with customers, not prosecute them. The restrictions under Section 76 of the Water Industry Act 1991 (temporary hosepipe bans) (Flood and Water Management Act 2010), will affect about 20 million people. The ban includes: · watering a garden using a hosepipe; · cleaning a private motorvehicle using a hosepipe; · watering plants on domestic or other noncommercial premises using a hosepipe; · cleaning a private leisure boat using a hosepipe; · filling or maintaining a domestic swimming or paddling pool; · drawing water, using a hosepipe, for domestic recreational use; · filling or maintaining a domestic pond using a hosepipe; · filling or maintaining an ornamental fountain; · cleaning walls, or windows, of domestic premises using a hosepipe; · cleaning paths or patios using a hosepipe; · cleaning other artificial outdoor surfaces using a hosepipe. But 37% of people who responded to a survey carried out by hosepipeban. org.uk said they did not intend to abide by the ban. The seven companies introducing restrictions on water use following one of the driest two-year periods on record are relying on members of the public to report people breaking the rules. But the survey also found 64% of respondents said they would not inform authorities of neighbours

using their hosepipe in defiance of the ban - which can incur at £1,000 fine. Most of the suppliers expect the ban to last all summer. Mike Hegarty, Sutton and East Surrey Water’s operations director Customers are no longer be able to use their hosepipes for watering their gardens, washing cars or boats, hosing down patios and paths, and filling swimming pools, ponds, fountains and paddling pools. Public parks and allotments are also hit. The firms insist the restrictions are necessary to preserve essential water supplies and protect the environment. Martin Baggs, chief executive of Thames Water, said: “Imposing restrictions on the use of hosepipes, although regrettable, is the most sensible and responsible next step in encouraging everyone to use less water so we can maintain supplies for as long as it stays dry, and reduce the risk of more serious restrictions later in the year.” Despite some rain in the past few days, March was another dry month and the whole of the South East and East Anglia and parts of Yorkshire are officially in a state of drought. The Environment Agency says most reservoirs are now below normal levels and river flows are decreasing. All rivers are experiencing lower than normal flows, with twothirds “exceptionally” low. The water firms bringing in restrictions say they are investing significant resources in fixing leaks, moving water resources from wetter to drier areas and encouraging their customers to save water. But the Environment Agency has urged companies to do more to tackle leakage rates. ater companies across England and Wales leaked more than 3.3 billion litres a day in 2010/11, according to Ofwat, the economic regulator of the water and sewerage industry. Anglian and Southern were among the companies to fail to meet their water leakage targets last year.

A nostalgic year for Britain A MODERN twist on nostalgia in a year of flying the flag for Britain; for the first time ever a caravan is to be the focal point of an RHS Chelsea main show garden this May. Designer Jo Thompson’s Caravan Club garden showcases all things British including a very British pastime of caravanning. Gardeners are skilled in dealing with gluts and Thompson’s design capably incorporates all the patriotic celebrations taking place this year but with a modern twist on nostalgia. As well as being a Government backed ‘Year of the Staycation’, Britain will host the Olympic Games, celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and may even see England win the European Football Championship. 2012 is also The Caravan Club’s ‘Year of Touring’. And, along with their 105th birthday celebration, is reason enough for the member organisation to be at Chelsea for the first time highlighting the merits of caravanning with their ‘Celebration of Caravanning’ show garden. Thompson used her experiences of caravanning last year with her children to inform her design which pivots around Doris, a British 1950’s two person caravan. There’s also a dog kennel which Jo has designed to reflect the shape of Doris. “It’s in our nature to want to travel and take our creature comforts with us, whether we are away for a day’s trip to a favourite garden or spending a week or two exploring our great British countryside. This 10m x 10m garden is packed full of a new take on the best of British”: says Jo. Jo’s signature-like naturalistic planting keeps the look contemporary and her use of five Chinese birches for structure, Betula albosinensis ‘Fascination’, will be a departure from the usual multi-stemmed look favoured by her peers. Single stemmed trees are also more

challenging to place. A palette of pink and cream planting, incorporating irises, roses and peonies, Wealden sandstone paths, timber walkways crossed by a steel rill, running with cooling water for feet and bottles, convey the delights of a touring holiday at home. Patriotic touches like the feminised flag patchwork hammock and picnic bench seat cushions are a direct reference to this year’s Jubilee celebrations. Lawrence Bate, Director of Marketing for The Caravan Club says, “The Club is delighted to be working with Jo Thompson, her design is

the perfect balance between a reflection of a bygone era and contemporary British planting. Her garden honors traditional planting, such as the sort of flowers you would find in the hedgerow while out walking, yet demonstrates the latest in garden design that is achievable in the home.” Bate continues, “The ‘Celebration of Caravanning’ garden will hopefully highlight why caravanning in the UK is not only a wonderful holiday option but also a fantastic way to pursue your interest and hobbies. For gardeners what better way

to visit the many beautiful gardens the length and breadth of the country, than in a caravan.” The RHS Chelsea Flower Show, a celebration of the highest quality of horticulture and design, is one of the most famous gardening shows in the world. Held every May and open to the public for five days it has become an important place for observing trends. Recently tipped as the ‘designer of the moment’, Jo was awarded a gold medal and Best Urban Garden in Show at Chelsea in 2010, the year before she received a silver-gilt medal for her first ever Chelsea garden. In October 2011 she gained a silver medal at the Gardening World Cup Japan, and her design for a beachside garden in Sussex was recently awarded The Best Rural Garden Award (New Homes and Gardens Awards 2011).

WOMEN who fall pregnant while dieting are more likely to have a child who could become obese or diabetic in later life. That’s the possibility gleaned from a study carried out using sheep by University of Manchester scientists, who believe the findings may hold true for humans as well. The research may also have found a reason why human twins are more likely to develop type-2 diabetes in adulthood. The team investigated twin pregnancies in sheep, as well as the pregnancies of ewes receiving less food around the time the lamb was conceived. Researchers

THERE are so many forms of colouring available to clients that it’s no wonder they don’t know what to ask for, or what the procedure is. This week, I’m touching on the subject of hi-lighting. Gone are the days of pulling hair through a rubber cap, and the most common form today is with foil or mesh. It’s a system of colouring which allows the stylist to place colour exactly where desired, and this method should achieve results right up to the root area. More than one tone can be achieved, too, blending shades together to form a more natural result. As with natural hair that is made up of multi-tonal shades, the stylist can also place these colours into your hair to create anything, from a subtle change to a more striking effect. Using this method is more time-consuming than the more traditional ways, but the results always speak for themselves, and it can take up to around an hour to create a full head of highlights using this technique. Slices of aluminium foil are placed under weaved sections of your hair to achieve this result, The stylist works quickly through the sections of your hair, blending the colours through it. If this process is to be repeated, then he or she will place the colour only if matching it up with the older shade, and only

Aftermath of dieting while being pregnant then looked at tissues from the brains of the unborn lambs to see if there were changes in the structure of the DNA, which would alter genes involved in food intake and glucose levels after birth. Anne White, Professor of Endocrine Sciences said: “We found that unborn twin lambs had changes in the structure of DNA in the region of the brain that regulates food intake and glucose. This resulted in an increased chance of diabetes in adulthood. “Our findings provide a reason why twins are more likely to get diabetes, but we have also shown that mothers who don’t have enough food around the time of conception may have a child who grows up with an increased risk

of obesity.” The research, carried out with colleagues in New Zealand and Canada, is published in the Journal of the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology. Although conducted on sheep, the researchers believe their findings are also relevant to humans because they reveal a non-genetic or “epigenetic” way in which the DNA of offspring can be altered. While the study does not have implications for the treatment of diabetes or obesity, the researchers say it could be important for disease-prevention regimes. This would lead to advice on eating being given to women planning a family, which could reduce future health risks for their children.

Cancer zap coming to UK on the root area because overlapping will break and dry out the hair. If using more than one shade, the tones can be put through the hair from root to tip because, normally, there is a darker and a lighter shade when using multi-tonal colours. The darker shade will be weaker in strength, and thus giving the hair more depth and shine. Try not to go too overboard with clashing tones as this can result in highlight overload and often looks messy and stripey. Try to stick with complementing shades so that the final result is as natural as possible. There’s nothing worse than seeing big thick stripes, either,

because this can look bad when growing out. That’s because the sections used are chunky, leaving a ”gap” as they grow away from the scalp. This foil method of highlighting also looks good when used with a base colour or background. The base colour really brings out the lighter shades and is great for totally blocking out those nasty greys. Whatever method you chose to use, make sure it’s done well because to me, badly-done highlights are the worst form of colouring as they can look patchy and/or yellowy. Consult you stylist about which shade or method is best for your hair. But remember this form of colouring CANNOT be done at home!

A PIONEERING treatment which is especially effective for treating childhood cancer is to be available in the UK for the first time. It is hoped 1,500 patients a year will benefit from proton beam therapy, which is a type of advanced radiotherapy. Currently, patients have to travel to the US or Switzerland to receive it but Health Secretary Andrew Lansley has announced it will be available in Manchester and London. Around £250m will be invested in building NHS treatment centres at The Christie NHS Foundation Trust hospital in Manchester and University College London Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.

Proton beam therapy uses a precision high-energy beam of particles to destroy cancer cells. The treatment is particularly suitable for complex childhood cancers, increasing success rates and reducing side effects, such as deafness, loss of IQ and secondary cancers. Proton beam therapy will be fully available in England by 2017. Until then, the NHS will continue to fund patients in need of the treatment to receive it abroad. By 2014/15, the NHS will

be spending £30m per year sending up to 400 patients overseas. Mr Lansley visited The Christie Hospital in Manchester and said earlier: “Developing a national proton beam therapy service is vital to ensuring our cancer facilities are world class. “We have always said that it is patient outcomes which matter, and to get the best for patients we must always be looking to push the boundaries. “In addition to improved success rates proton beam therapy reduces the side effects which patients, particularly children, can suffer as a result of traditional forms of cancer treatment. “Once this service is in place, The Christie and UCLH will boast unparalleled cancer facilities. It will mean more patients will be able to get this treatment, including those for whom travelling abroad for long periods are not possible.” The Department of Health say the development of the service will be closely monitored and should further capacity be needed in the future, the preferred third site is University Hospitals Birmingham.

VAL SAINSBURY Keeping her finger on the pulse Email: val.sainsbury@canarianweekly.com THE British Government has launched an advertising campaign on the “hidden dangers” of secondhand smoke to young children. New TV and radio adverts in England will show that smoking by a window or the back door does not protect youngsters from harmful effects. Figures from the Royal College of Physicians state that millions of UK children are exposed to second-hand

Dreadful effect that smoking has on kids smoke, which puts them at increased risk of lung disease, meningitis and cot death. Every year, second-hand smoking results in over 300,000 GP visits and 9,500 hospital visits by children,

and costs the NHS more than £23.6 million. A survey of 1,000 children aged 8-13, whose parents are smokers, has been released to support the campaign. It found that 98% wished

their parents would stop smoking, 82% wished their parents would not smoke in front of them at home, while 78% wished they would not smoke in the car. Meanwhile, 41% of youngsters said that cigarette smoke made them feel ill, while 42% said it made them cough. Health Secretary Andrew Lansley said: “We all know smoking kills, but not enough people realise the serious effect that secondhand smoke can have on the health of others, particularly children. “This campaign will raise awareness of this danger

and encourage people to take action to protect others from second-hand smoke. This is just one part of our wider strategy on tobacco. We need to do more.” Dr Charles Godden, consultant paediatrician at the Royal Surrey Hospital, said: “I see children every

week with conditions which are made worse by secondhand smoke. “Most parents would be horrified to know that even a short car journey in which an adult has been smoking would result in breakdown products of nicotine in their child’s urine.”

Muamba collapse underlines the heart risks to young men YOUNG men are more likely than women to die suddenly from cardiac arrest, caused by irregular heart rhythms. The risk of death among young people hit the headlines a few weeks ago when Bolton Wanderers footballer Fabrice Muamba suffered a cardiac arrest on the Tottenham pitch in the early stages of an FA Cup quarter-final which was, subsequently, abandoned. Fortunately, the 23-year-old striker is on the mend, though still under close observation in a London hospital after being on a life-support machine. The shocking incident, which received worldwide publicity, prompted calls for footballers to be screened more regularly for heart problems. They are tested mandatory at about 16 years of age - and that’s it! Experts know that sudden cardiac death among most middle-aged and older people is caused by coronary artery disease. In contrast, sudden cardiac death among under-35s is frequently caused by

06 April - 12 April 2012

inherited disorders of cardiac muscle (cardiomyopathies) and cardiac rhythm (ion channelopathies). A new report, from the national audit of Sudden Arrhythmic Death Syndrome (SADS), found that 62% of deaths from SADS in England and Wales were in men. And the biggest proportion of SADS happens to people in their Thirties. The data

covers 317 deaths from July 2008 to January 2012. Some 19% of deaths occurred when the person was in bed, 7% while they were asleep, and around 17% of people died during some form of exertion, such as exercise. Perry Elliott, from the Inherited Cardiovascular Disease Services at the Heart Hospital, University College London, said: “While SADS kills a relatively small number

of people in England and Wales, recent events in the sporting world highlight the devastating impact that the condition continues to have on people. “As this report shows, much progress has been made. But we still need NHS trusts to provide more data to build on this basic analysis, and to improve the outlook for families affected by this fatal condition.”

Easter egg nest cakes

SIMPLE and fun, but we never tire of them. Brilliant to make with little children over the holidays, these easy chocolate crispy cakes are a definite favourite. Ingredients 225g/8oz plain chocolate, broken into pieces 2 tbsp golden syrup 50g/2oz butter 75g/3oz cornflakes 36 mini chocolate eggs Preparation method 1.Line a 12-hole fairy cake tin with paper cases. 2.Melt the chocolate, golden syrup and butter in a bowl set over a pan of gently simmering water, (do not let the base of the bowl touch the water). Stir the mixture until smooth. 3.Remove the bowl from the heat and gently stir in the cornflakes until all of the cereal is coated in the chocolate. 4.Divide the mixture between the paper cases and press 3 chocolate eggs into the centre of each nest. Chill in the fridge for 1 hour, or until completely set.

Choc-a-bloc with a tasty egg choice! IT’S THAT time of year again, when the shops are chock a bloc with Easter goodies and this year could prove to be a bumper year for

egg hunters as new research from Mintel finds the number of global Easter egg new product launches has risen a sweet 45% over the past year. Latest research finds around a quarter (25%) of all global chocolate launches in 2011 were for chocolate products with a “seasonal” positioning e.g., Christmas, Easter, Halloween themed etc. In terms of value, the UK market share in 2010 was more than £500 million.

Page 42

Marcia Mogelonsky, Director of Insight for Mintel Food and Drink, said: “This year has proved to be a real hot-bed of activity for Easter chocolate. Seasonal chocolate is, if anything more “recession resistant” than the overall market, as the products have broad appeal as gifts for a wide range of recipients, from friends to relatives. Easter has consistently led other holidays in innovation - and in sales - as it is a holiday with a strong affinity for confectionery through gift baskets, egg hunts, and other family-focused traditions.” The UK is the second most active region accounting for 12% of all new product launches. However, while seasonal activity is thriving, the number of seasonal launches aimed at children aged between 5 and 12 has remained static in the UK. This change is not enough to affect the overall market in any significant way, but could suggest that manufacturers will be paring down their efforts to introduce seasonal products aimed directly at children in the next few years. It will be interesting to see if other markets follow suit in the future, as childhood obesity continues to be a concern.

Thomson launches Platinum Cruises Ryanair inflight mag is cut down in size ON its web site Ryanair is promoting the fact that it’s going greener by reducing the size of its in-flight magazine. “Let’s Go with Ryanair” is pocket sized, so you can easily take it with you on your travels, A5 size, using 50% less (recycled) paper. That’s all well and good, so the 164 page magazine has become smaller in font size, losing none of its content but saving the company 500k. The new look menu card will also double up as its inflight menu card. Ryanair’s Stephen McNamara said: “Ryanair and Ink (the magazine’s publisher) have cut the page size of our

award winning “Let’s Go with Ryanair” magazine in order to reduce its weight, as well as its paper and production costs, but we have sacrificed none of its 164 pages or its entertaining content. Our new magazine ‘Let’s Go with Ryanair’ will save up to 500k in print and production costs each year and is now an even better read, which all Ryanair passengers can take with them when they arrive at their destination.” Ink’s Michael Keating said: “Ryanair set us a cost saving challenge and we delivered a magazine that we believe passengers will not only read onboard, but also use as a destination guide when they land. Let’s Go With Ryanair continues to be one of the biggest circulating and best read magazines in the world.”

THOMSON Cruises is excited to announce the launch of its Platinum Cruises range. To modernise its cruise line, Thomson Cruises will be making a multimillion pound investment

to give Thomson Dream and Thomson Celebration makeovers, and both will be joining the Thomson Platinum collection. Platinum Cruises will have a lot in common with Thomson’s Platinum hotels. All their Platinum ships will be rated 4T and they’ll have a contemporary

Stansted strike stopped

GROUND staff at Stansted Airport have called off strikes planned for over the Easter holidays after talks with employers. The decision will be welcome news for some

of the 1.5 million Britons expected to head abroad for the holidays. About 100,000 are expected to leave from Stansted over the weekend, according to travel organisation ABTA. Members of the GMB union employed by Swissport had been due to walk out for four hours on

Good Friday, Saturday and Easter Monday in a dispute over pay. The union said workers would see their wages cut by up to £1,000 because of shift changes. Swissport said in a statement: “We are pleased that passengers and families travelling over the Easter weekend will

no longer face potential disruption. “We will continue our talks in an attempt to reach a joint consensus that ensures we understand our commercial challenges and balance the need for the work life balance of our employees.” Further talks will be held later this month.

look and feel onboard with rich colours, modern furnishings and designer touches. All this will be combined with the first-class service, food and entertainment Thomson Cruises deliver as standard. Thomson Cruises also make it even easier to cruise from your doorstep, as Thomson Airways offer fly cruises from 19 regional airports. All the cabins onboard Thomson Dream and Thomson Celebration will be refurbished, with clean-cut contemporary designs and suites that come with extras like iPod docking stations. The bars and lounges will also be revamped, so overall things will be much more modern and minimalist. The à la carte restaurants will be themed offering delicious tailor-made menus. Plus, the spas will get a bit of an update – with Thomson Dream having a new suite of treatment rooms built next to the salon. Thomson Dream’s first sailing as a Platinum ship will be the Transatlantic Sunset cruise on 9th December 2012, beginning in Lisbon, Portugal and finishing in the Caribbean favourite, Barbados. Thomson Dream will then cruise around the Caribbean for the winter season, calling in on islands like Dominica, the British Virgin Islands and Antigua. Thomson Celebration will

be Platinum from 6 May 2013 from her home port in Marmaris, Turkey – offering Eastern Mediterranean and Black Sea itineraries. Fraser Ellacott, Managing Director of Thomson Cruises said, “This is the next step in modernising our cruises in line with Thomson’s strategy of unique holiday experiences, offering getaways that customers cannot buy elsewhere. We’re very excited about launching Platinum Cruises, which will be on sale to the public from 25th April 2012. We’re sure that our customers will enjoy their new modern surroundings in the cabins and onboard our ships. Two of our strongest performing ships have been selected to offer Platinum Cruises, 90 percent of customers rate the Thomson Dream and the Thomson Celebration as good or excellent in our customer satisfaction questionnaires, so they are the perfect choice.” As with all Thomson Cruises, customers don’t need to worry about tips and service charges as they’re included in the price of a Platinum cruise. For those wanting to opt for the popular Cruise & Stay option, Thomson Cruises has included several Platinum hotels in their collection. Customers can select one of these for the ultimate Platinum experience.

ON THE ROAD WITH JAV Behind the Wheel

Email: Jav@canarianweekly.com

No wonder we’re in a tiz over the Twizy THE sometimes weird and whacky world of motoring has just become a little weirder and certainly a lot whackier! This is Renault’s production version of their innovative, pure-electric, two-seat urban car called the Twizy EV Technic, manufactured in the company’s Valladolid plant in central Spain, and set for release this month in Europe. And it lives up to all expectations - not just as super-functional, carabout-town transport but also as an exciting little motor to drive. The driver sits centrally in the 1.4-metre wide, 2.33m long body, with the passenger directly behind them. Beneath is a floormounted lithium-ion battery, which gives the 17bhp, 475kg Twizy a range of 62 miles on a good day, although 50-55 miles is more likely. Added to the bike-sized body is a surprisingly sophisticated suspension set-up of PseudoMacPherson struts at both ends. And it has been developed mainly by Renaultsport. So, taking all this into account, it’s no surprise that the Twizy is, in a peculiar way, a thrilling drive. It feels very scooterlike, yet delivers many of the practicalities of fourwheeled vehicles, including stability, substantial weather protection and better safety standards than the equivalents with two or three wheels. The steering is nicely

weighted, the interior well thought-out, and though the one-piece seat adjusts only forward and backwards, it is fairly comfortable. But the cost will obviously come into the equation. Yes, it’s dead easy for manoeuvring and parking and it’s cheap to run (£1 per 60 miles). The downside is that you don’t just have to cough up the 6, 990 euros (£6,690) base price, or 8,490 euros (£7,400) for the top spec. That’s because there s also the question of battery hire, which will set you back at least 54 euros (£45) per month. Doors are a 635-euro (£545) option (not a decision that has to be made on too many cars), and even with them you’re quite exposed to the elements because there are no windows. There’s no heater, either, and the rear passenger will be less than comfortable, especially in the winter,

when cold-weather gear will be a must. Even so, it

has massive appeal, and not just as a novelty because

the Twizy makes sense for those who simply want a

functional, city commuter. And it is sprightly enough, with a top speed of around 50mph. True, it can end up looking expensive, especially if you compare it with a less restrictive, conventional urban car such as the Hyundai i10, which is only slightly more expensive. Yet the Twizy will only ever be bought as a second or third vehicle, for a distinct purpose, and if you look at the engineering involved in the Renault, and consider its more-specialised benefits, and distinctive sci-fi look, it begins to look rather inexpensive. It will surely prove to be a real traffic-stopper, and it will certainly get the neighbours talking!

You just know when you’ve been Tangoed! AND on the subject of weird and whacky, how’s about this for a tasty model to pop open a few eyes over here! No, not the girl but this incredible orange machine! It’s actually a two-seater Suzuki Q-Concept - an ultra-compact smart city car, just 2.5m long and 1.3m wide, which was displayed at the Tokyo Show. Will it be built? You’ve got more chance of being Tangoed!

Match Report By Geoff Huxtable

Xtreme hit double tops! XTREME Sports Bar are League champions for the second year running! A win over Cozy Wanderers in their final match was enough to snatch the title from Bar 180 A by just two points. For their part, Bar 180 A dished out a real hammering to Gaffers with a whitewash. A John Lowe final hangover, perhaps? Phoenix Bar’s 6-2 victory at Tavern included a maximum from Steve Jones and ensured them the thirdplace pot. It also means that the top three teams have

WE are down to the business end of the season, and five 6-4 scorelines in Division One on Tuesday showed how much every frame matters. There has been an excellent three-way battle for the title in recent weeks, but former winners Tenerife Hammers A may have slipped away as we enter the final furlong. They beat Hoops last week in the Toddys Gold Label Cup, but the Los Cristianos crew had their revenge seven days later to leave the Hammers’ League hopes in tatters. In a nip-and-tuck match, Hoops were always just ahead - and Jambo went in-off the final black to gift Stevie the last frame and the Hoops the points. Hammers, with just four matches left, need a hand, and they were almost given one by Terrace Bar A, who ran Summerland Superstars close. Adi beat Ashley to level the contest at 4-4 before Grandad overcame Sparky and then Penguin beat Mal to take the spoils. Trap Door are coming with a wet sail, but they have left their title charge too late. They smashed Legends Bar 8-2, and Dave seven-balled Cedric in the process to make it eight straight wins, but they look booked for fourth place.

duplicated last season’s finish. The Pub rounded off a decent campaign with a 6-2 success at Bar 180 B, while Target Bar’s Mark hit a 180 in a home venue derby against the Titans. The Tornados and the X-men finished their fixtures with home wins, although they both had to win the trebles leg to do so. Sundowners are Division 2 champions. A storming season saw them win 30 of their 33 matches and finish just three points above Ourplace Naturals. The Naturals should, perhaps, have won the title, as their ‘goal’ difference seems to indicate. Scruffy Macs enjoyed the

Has three become two?

Defending champs Palms A were chinned at Bar 180 A in a close contest which saw a fine eight-ball win for Adi over Glyn, which led to the traditional pants-down parade. Toscales Old Boys scrapped hard and deserved their draw at home to Bar 180 C. But this, coupled with Tasca’s victory over Dreamers, has seen them relegated. It’s going to be a real scrap to see who will join them. Summerland Allstars, who are fighting hard, pulled off a stunning win at Phoenix Knights. Atlantis Sharks need another win to be sure of their top-flight status after they went down 6-4 at Gaffers. Barracuda Bandits need just one more win to be crowned Division Two champions after beating Mountain Rangers 7-3. Phoenix Potters moved a win closer to joining them in Division One as they beat Barracuda Hunters by the same score, and La Cana secured a vital win at Market Taverners. Connors ended Tenerife Hammers C’s promotion hopes with a 6-4 win, while Summerland Elite suffered a stunning loss at Tenerife Pool Tables. Fat Nick’s lads are rockbottom, but they were in

inspired form as they took their fourth win of the season. Hat-tip of the week goes to Liam, one of the youngest players in the league. He won all three of his matches as he helped Atlantis Crew to a

draw with Toscales A-Team. Well done kid! Elsewhere, Nauta B returned to winning ways at home to Target Rangers, and Terrace B beat Lupain 7-3. Exiles B were the big

Marching on together… maybe! CD Tenerife 1 CD Toledo 0 THE margins between success and failure are so fine. It remains to be seen quite how significant Pablo Sicilia's 94th-minute winner last Sunday turns out to be. But I doubt the Tenerife captain has even netted such an important goal. Would chairman Miguel Conception have fired manager Andres Garcia Tebar if Sicilia hadn’t scored? Would the fans have turned on the players if Sicilia hadn’t scored? Would Tenerife have the confidence to mount a promotion charge it Sicilia hadn't scored? You get the message. I cannot understate how massive a moment it was. Tenerife were huffing and puffing against a wellorganised side who were making a mockery of their league position. It’s true that every side put in a little more against Tener-

ife at this standard, and Toledo were no different. They had a triangular setup of Sanchez, Gomez and Buades, who snuffed out anything Tenerife threw at them. And it wasn’t much to be honest. A tepid first half was summed up by the pathetic Victor Bravo, who might as well not bothered turning up. They had the lions’ share of the possession but didn't have a clue how to break down their well-drilled opponents. Pre-match worries that the players would shun their coach were hardly silenced. The crowd did their best, but it wasn’t happening. Half-time brought a change of emphasis as Tenerife started positively. Maybe the players had called a truce with Tebar? Half-chances were created and Toledo dropped deeper and deeper. Sanz, their only attacking threat, spent more time on his back than Jodie Marsh. The fans felt it would only be a matter of time, but then Tenerife did what they do best. They didn’t so much shoot themselves in

the foot as hack it off with a penknife. Centre-back Tarantino had already been booked when he lunged in carelessly again, leaving the ref with little choice than to show him a red card. It was his third sendingoff this season - and all the hard work was undone. Suddenly, Toledo smelt blood. Their talisman Dani Alonso was only fit enough to start on the bench, but he was brought on, along with the dangerous Carrillo. They changed formation and for 10 minutes, it was all hands on deck for Tenerife. With five minutes to go, Tebar undid the shackles and Tenerife went for broke. The match became a cup-tie as both sides sensed a winner. But Toledo still had their game plan. At every opportunity, they feigned injury or fell to the ground. It was ridiculous and frustrating. But it also led to five minutes extra-time. The raising of the fourth official’s board gave the fans and players fresh heart, and Tenerife went for the throat. A rash of corners and free kicks followed and then, finally, they had their reward. Toledo had half-cleared a long throw from Llorente and, quick as a flash, Cristobal hoisted the ball to the back post. Toledo had stepped out, but Sicilia hadn’t. He coolly volley home from 12 yards with a finish of which that Li-

onel Messi would have been proud. Sicilia raced towards the fans at the Armada Sur kop end as the ground went wild. Toledo’s players surround-

ed the linesman as they were convinced it was offside but the ref eventually pointed for a goal. It was hard work, but Tenerife had their win. Would

they have done so if Toledo hadn’t play acted? Fine margins! It was the second time this season Tenerife had won with a time-added goal from Pablo Sicilia. It was also the second time they had won after having had Tarantino sent off. Not that I'm suggesting it as a tactic, of course!

Horoscopes of the week Aries

(March 21st-April 20th) Don’t be afraid of changes in the next few days or weeks, but embrace them. They are proof that you’ve moved on and that you’re growing up. And be assured that better times await you. All you have to do is have the confidence to really live the experience instead of hiding from it. TAURUS (April 21stMay 21st) Family have not been easy for you to deal with of late. Aspects suggest they believe something which is not true. If this is so, then why don’t you put them straight? Is it because you still seem to feel that you are to blame? Experience is what makes us wise, so just remember that. Without it, you will not appreciate the good times, which are just around the corner. GEMINI (May 22ndJune 21st) Financially, there appears to be a lot of pressure on you at the moment and you may have to do some extra work to provide more money. However, if you make a concentrated effort, the situation should soon ease. You’re heading towards big things, and confidence is half the battle. CANCER (June 22nd-July 23rd) You appear to have something on your mind which is getting you down. Take a step back and try to look at the bigger picture. You may not realise it, but you are the one who is in the driving seat, and no one else. Time spent with older people can fill in many blanks about what really went on at the very start of the month. LEO (July 24thAugust 23rd) A visit to somewhere important is indicated, which should give you the edge on the competition that has been hot on your heels. Don’t turn down the opportunity to improve your knowledge regarding

your work. By putting more time and energy into professional affairs, your personal life is sure to prosper. VIRGO (August 24th-September 23rd) Education is well starred, and those of you who have been thinking about learning something new or improving skills you already have, can enjoy the fact that you have the backing of the stars behind you. Take what jealous people say at the weekend with a pinch of salt. You know far more than they ever will about your situation. LIBRA (September 24th-October 23rd) Where romance is concerned, you appear to be letting your imagination run away with you, and you will have to make a concerted effort to try to come back down to earth. Instead of speaking, why not try listening? There is much for you to learn about what did or did not go on last month. SCORPIO (October 24th-November 22nd) Someone in your immediate surroundings appears to be becoming a bit of a nuisance, so you will have to be firm with them. Plans for a holiday of some sort can garner criticism from family, but it is you and not them who will be making any such trip, so try not to take notice of what could actually be pure jealousy. S AG I T TA R I U S (November 23rdDecember 21st) A happy atmosphere is indicated in your

surroundings and you should be feeling more relaxed than normal. This could well be because a certain person is no longer a problem or a threat to you, and that you have gained some sense of independence. Now you must concentrate on how to get the most from your career.

C A P R I C O R N (December 22ndJanuary 20th) You are pushed into asking for commitments which you may come to regret, so take a step back and consider whether either of you really need to take things to the next level just yet? Why not just sit back and enjoy what should be the fun part of a union, or you will take the joy out of what should be a really happy time.

AQUARIUS (January 21st-February 19th) Teaching, learning and education in general are all in the offing. Don’t be talked into telling lies for those you work with as it will come back on you - and you could be labelled a cheat by those you respect. People you meet for the first time leave a lasting impression on you and could lead you to change plans you had for this month ahead. PISCES (February 20th-March 20th) A promise of financial gain is indicated, but you will still have to go easy on your spending. You will need a great deal of tact and understanding with family, as it is not until you’ve heard the whole story that you will be willing to back their plight. Be careful at work, where flirtations take a turn for the serious, but may come at a price.

What better way to train your brain. Starting at the left with the number provided, work across each of these lines applying the mathematical instructions to your running total. Don´t reach for the calculator - that´s cheating! Write your final answer in the last box of the line. Aim to complete each round in about 30 seconds. Good Luck!
