EX-PRIEST ACCUSED OF 16 SEX CRIMES

AN 85-year-old former Catholic priest has been arrested in the municipality of Arona for alleged sexual offences with young altar boys in the Derbyshire area of the UK.

As we go to print the National Police confirm that Irishman Father Francis Paul Cullen is currently being held in Tenerife II Prison, awaiting extradition back to the UK. The Dubliner, accused of 16 charges, dating back more than 40 years, was arrested on 20th August, under a European Arrest Warrant. It followed a joint operation between Derbyshire Police (who originally issued the arrest warrant), the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS), the Serious Organised Crime Agency (SOCA) and the Tenerife authorities. The National Police confirm the alleged acts were committed between 1955 and 1991 in various churches and religious centres in the UK. The first contact with

victims is said to have occurred when they were seven, eight and 12 years old. Abuse such as kissing and/or masturbation is said to have continued for seven and eight years in two of the cases. The first case allegedly occurred in 1955, when the detainee was 27 and his victim 7. Kissing and touching of the private parts of the child was said to have taken place on 10-12 occasions until the victim was 14. The defendant allegedly called it an instruction in sexual matters. The second victim was, supposedly, an eight-year-old altar boy in 1963, and the abuse was said to have been repeated for eight years. The third alleged victim was an altar boy, aged 12, in 1991. The accused apparently looked after the child while his parents were on a two-week holiday. Abuse was believed to have taken place in both the boy’s house and the church. Derbyshire Police told Canarian Weekly: “Derbyshire Constabulary can confirm that officers have worked with the Serious Organised Crime Agency (SOCA)

and the Spanish police to trace a man who is wanted on suspicion of sexual offences. “The 85-year-old man was arrested in Tenerife on a European Arrest Warrant. If an extradition is successful he will be returned to the UK, where he will face charges related to alleged offences committed more than 40 years ago. “A further statement will be released after the man returns to Derbyshire.” The former priest will be questioned by Derbyshire Police once he arrives in the UK. The Derbyshire arrest warrant relates to offences in the Parish of Christ the King, Derby.

Father Cullen had worked in all four counties within the Diocese of Nottingham: Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire and Lincolnshire. Father Andrew Cole, spokesman for the Catholic Diocese of Nottingham, told Canarian Weekly: “We are aware that an 85-yearold man, who worked as a priest in the East Midlands, has been arrested in Tenerife for the alleged abuse of children and is awaiting extradition to the United Kingdom. “We have worked closely with the police throughout the investigation, which has led to his arrest, and will

continue to do so.” He added: “The Catholic Church is committed to the safeguarding of children and vulnerable adults in all its activities.” Father Cullen is believed to have left the UK and moved to Tenerife in the early Nineties. He is reported to have told arresting officers that he had lived “for some time” in Tenerife. Canarian Weekly’s own investigation revealed that here in Tenerife, however, he used the alias of Raul Martin, even though he was not of Spanish descent. In the late Eighties/early Nineties, he bought a one-bedroom apartment off-plan on the Los Alisios Complex, Los Cristianos. Documentation confirms that this was sold between March 2006 and March 2007 because of outstanding community fees. Cullen’s whereabouts thereafter remain a mystery. Local sources confirm that police visited Los Alisios about 12 months ago searching for him. The thin, drawn, softly-spoken man, somewhat of a Walter Mitty

character, seemed to do odd jobs to get by. He talked to locals of visiting his sister in Australia, and told others that he looked after an elderly neighbour. A local church-goer confirmed that he had seen ‘Paul’ on a number of occasions at the local Catholic church, Nuestra Senora del Carmen, in Los Cristianos, but added: “He was not a regular visitor.” Father Cole said the Catholic Diocese of Nottingham had worked closely with the police. “We have encouraged them in their investigation, and we are very keen for him to come back so that he can face the charges that will be laid before him,” he said. SOCA confirmed that the arrest was not part of the Operation Captura Campaign. The Honorary Consulate of Ireland, in Santa Cruz, Tenerife told Canarian Weekly, “We can confirm we are offering consular assistance to Irish Citizen Francis Paul Cullen.” Did you know Father Francis Paul Cullen also known as Raul Martin?

Rolf Harris charged with sexual offences ROLF HARRIS, the veteran Australian entertainer with a passion for England, was yesterday (Thursday) charged with nine counts of indecent assault.

He was also charged on four counts of making indecent images of children. The comedian/artist/ singer painted a portrait of The Queen for her 80th birthday in 2008. And over the years, he has also been awarded the MBE, OBE and CBE. He was first arrested in March by officers investigating historical allegations of child sexual

abuse. Six of the offences relate to the indecent assault of a girl aged 15-16 between 1980 and 1981, and three relate to a 14-year-old girl in 1986. The indecent images

30th August - 5th September 2013

of children were alleged to have been made last year. Mr Harris, 83, of Bray, Berkshire, will appear at Westminster Magistrates’ Court on 23rd September.

Alison Saunders, chief Crown prosecutor for London, said: “Having completed our review, we have concluded that there is sufficient evidence. “And it is in the pub-

lic interest for Mr Harris to be charged with nine counts of indecent assault and four of making indecent images of a child. “The alleged indecent assaults date from 1980 to 1986 and relate to two complainants, aged 14 and 15, at the time of the alleged offending.” Mr Harris was arrested as part of Operation Yewtree, which was set up in the wake of allegations against former BBC Radio 1 DJ and TV presenter Jimmy Savile. Operation Yewtree has three strands: one is looking specifically at the actions of Savile, while the second strand concerns allegations against “Savile and others”. Mr Harris was arrest-

ed as part of the third strand, which relates to alleged complaints against other people unconnected to the Savile investigation - those regarded by the police as “others”. Mr Harris has been a fixture on British TV screens for more than 40 years, having arrived in the UK from Australia in 1952. He has been honoured in the UK three times, first as a Member of the British Empire in 1968 (MBE), then an OBE in 1977 and in 2006 he was advanced to a CBE. In June 2012 he was awarded one of Australia’s highest honours when he was made an Officer of the Order of Australia in The Queen’s Birthday list.

Loro Chimp regains sight

Tourists splash the cash

OVERSEAS tourists in the Canary Islands during the first seven months of the year dug deeper into their pockets than those who visited last year. Their 6,240-million-euro spending spree was 7.7% more than the same 2012 period, according to the Tourism Expenditure Survey (Egatur). The average sum spent per tourist was 1,066 euros - up by 6.7% - and their daily spend increased by 5.3% to 110 euros. Nationally, tourists in Spain spent 32,210 million euros up to the end of July, which was 6% more than last year.

Arico coast clean-up

VOLUNTEERS are asked to meet at 10am tomorrow in the church square, Punta de Abona, to take part in a coastal clean-up in Arico. Environment Councillor Ana Lupe Mora said: “We aim to increase knowledge on the part of the citizens of our coasts, and awareness that we are part of the problem - and that together we can build the solution.” Many sun-bathers do not appear to realise that waste on beaches causes marine pollution, affecting our own health and economy. The day will end with the release of a loggerhead turtle from the Centre for Wildlife Recovery, The Tahonilla Foundation.

Body found in Poris

THE body of a 35 year-old male swimmer was found in the water off the coast of Poris in the Arico region yesterday (Thursday) morning. Emergency services were alerted shortly after 7pm on Wednesday, but could not continue searching because of the lack of light.

La Tomatina’s big squash

THOUSANDS of revellers enjoyed being pelted with squashed tomatoes on Wednesday in the Spanish town of Brunol.

Some 20,000 people took part in the annual, hour-long tomato fight. The world’s biggest tomato fight was memorable this time as it was the first time participants had to pay to enter. They were charged 10 euros and, as if that weren’t enough, it was the first time it had rained since the event began back in 1945.

Silvia the 41 yearold Loro Parque chimpanzee has had a new lease of life following a double cataract operation.

The surgery is similar to that of a human. Silvia will shortly return to her family, comprising of a male, three femailes and three youngsters. Juan Vicente Martinez, head keeper said,of caretakers and “She is super calm and good”, infact she was the first mammal that arrived at the park, after it opened its doors with a collection of parrots. Silvia was originally rescues from the streets after being used by a photographer and

chained by the neck. Chmps live to about 50, Silvia is older and had

developed cataracts in both eyes and, although continued playing and behaving in good spirits, her lack of vision did prove a problem. Now she’s looking at things intently, a new quality of life. Specialists flew in from the UK and Italy and the surgery was complete in about half an hour. Silvia awoke of the anesthesia in a room prepared like a “nest” with palm leaves and

with music for babies, while the keeper held her hand and whispered to her. From the moment she opened her eyes she could see, and now two weeks on the recovery is perfect. She is the Grandmother of the family and teaches the others how to look after the younger ones. “She will now be discovering the world that she has not been able to see in years.”

Hospital waiting lists keep growing longer S P A N I S H hospitals are experiencing the longest waiting lists since records began in 2004.

Then, the average time-lapse prior to surgery was 78 days. Now, though, the average hospital waiting lists have gone up by one-third in just six months. For non-urgent surgery, where the patient’s life is not in danger and a delay will not cause irreversible damage, the delay has gone from 76 to 100 days

since February, the biggest backlogs occurring in Traumatology and Neurosurgery. Latest figures from the Ministry of Health show that a total of 571,400 people are awaiting operations, and 16.5% of those have been on the list for six months or more. Traumatology - surgery on bones, tendons and ligaments - has the highest number of patients waiting for an operation at just over 166,300, followed by Ophthalmology, with nearly 111,000, and General and Digestive Surgery at slightly over

108,500. The longest waiting lists are in Thorax Surgery and Neurosurgery, at 152 and 151 days respectively, followed by Plastic Surgery with a wait of 124 days. Gynaecology and Cardiology patients have the shortest wait for operations, at 70 and 73 days each. The operations where the backlog is greatest are for cataracts (90,600 patients); hernias (24,000-plus); arthroscopy (21,600) and an average wait of 116 days, and bunions, with 17,150 patients and a 123-day wait.

The longest waiting lists today include hip-replacements (128 days) and varicose veins (117 days), although one in four patients for hip-replacements or bunion treatment has already been waiting six months or more. According to the MoH, patients also experience delays of up to two months before seeing a consultant, the wait having gone from an average 53 days to 59. Patients with the shortest waiting times - an average of 41 days - are Ear, Nose and Throat; General Surgery and Digestion.

Bin Laden’s fall

THE circulation within Spain of the elusive 500-euro note, which bore the nickname of Al Qaeda leader Bin Laden, has fallen sharply.

Pesetas simply won’t disappear THE Bank of Spain has revealed that up to 1.7 billion euros in pesetas are still stashed in houses throughout the country.

Around 807 million pesetas are in coins, while the old currency in notes adds up to 874 million euros. Last year alone, the Bank of Spain changed 16 million euros - 2,662 million pesetas - and

last month, two million euros were dished out in exchange for 333 million of the former currency, which was phased out from 1st January 2002, Around 45% of pesetas will never be cashed in because they are being kept by collectors, or are deteriorated or out of the country. Many are believed to be in purses and wallets of one-time tourists to Spain, who kept them as a collector’s item because they weren’t worth much. And some even hang

30th August - 5th September 2013

on to their coins and notes in the belief that that one day, they may be worth a lot more than their face value. Once the euro came into force, the Spanish Government introduced a three-month phasingout period for pesetas. It meant the old currency was still accepted until 31st March, 2002, after which it could be exchanged at banks and other currency outlets until 30th June. But in the first nine months or so of 2002,

it was difficult getting euro notes changed for coins because there were not enough of them about. From 1st July that year, people wanting to exchange their pesetas for euros had to do so in person at the Bank of Spain. And there is now a final deadline: the very last day on which pesetas can be exchanged is New Year’s Eve, 2020 the day before the 19th anniversary of when Spain first set eyes on the euro.

The banknote was called a Bin Laden because most people claimed they’d never seen one. Despite calls for them to be discontinued to discourage money-laundering, they are still around. But there are fewer and fewer in circulation. Last Wednesday, the bank of Spain released figures that say the number of 500-euro bank notes in circulation in the country amounts to 85.5 million - the lowest figure since August 2005. Spain’s well-known black economy is said to equate to a quarter of

its gross domestic product, and these notes are used in large transactions only because they’re useless in the day-to-day economy. One reason for the reduction could be the Government’s attempts to crack down on tax fraud and money-laundering. The new law introduced in 2012 bans cash purchases in excess of 2,500 euros. The number of 200euro banknotes in circulation declined slightly in July, from a year earlier, to 13.83 million. It is equivalent to 2.767 billion euros, the lowest amount since February 2002. The 100-euro bills totalled 31.45 million, the lowest level since the banknotes of the singlecurrency zone were introduced at the start of 2002, while the number of 50-euro notes hit a record 84.18 million. I wish I had just one of each! Until next week…

San Miguel on the run

What's On Hearts of Tejina

From now until 01/09/2013 Traditionally three hearts made of fruit and flowers (El Pico, Calle Arriba and Calle Abajo), representing the population centres of the local people are carried on their shoulders by local residents to the church square, honouring St. Bartholomew, their passage is accompanied with the continuous sounding of rockets, known as ‘flying’. Every Heart is carried by approximately 25 men, as they weigh up to 800 kilos.

SAN MIGUEL de Abona Town Hall is staging its second annual Life Trail next Saturday (7th September). The “Vida Trail”, featuring two mountain races (12km and 25km) over the most iconic routes in the municipality, will test the best of competitors. The event is being organised in conjunction with the municipality’s Department of Culture and Events and the Tourism Department. San Miguel is also holding an “Amarilla Extreme Weekend” sports extravaganza from 12-13th October, featuring individual mountain-biking and trail running, and also a triathlon.

Britons are warned about unusual laws and customs The Foreign Office is encouraging residents and visitors to be aware of local legislation.

Playing bingo, snacking while sitting on a monument or feeding pigeons may seem innocent enough to many British citizens, but these are just some of the reasons why people have found themselves faced with hefty fines or in some cases arrested or detained abroad. Every year Brits are caught out by local laws and customs which might seem harmless in the UK, but some of which carry serious consequences abroad. Such incidents

Page 6

can easily be avoided by researching travel destinations in advance and taking note of updates and warnings issued by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO). A recent FCO report identified that more than a quarter (27%) of cases requiring consular assistance were for arrests or detentions, highlighting the value of familiarising oneself with local laws in order to steer clear of trouble. Some unusual overseas laws and customs to watch out for include: Barcelona It is against the law to wear a bikini, swimming trunks or to go barechested away from the

beach front area in Barcelona. Netherlands Don’t carry or use drugs. While the Netherlands has a reputation for being tolerant on the use of so-called ‘soft drugs’, this exists only for designated areas. Possession of prohibited substances or buying them can carry a prison sentence Venice Feeding the pigeons is against the law Singapore Chewing gum on the Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) system in Singapore is strictly prohibited Thailand It is illegal to import more than 200 cigarettes into Thailand Large fines and confiscation

Charles Hay, FCO Director of Consular Services said: “Consular staff often find that travellers are unaware that local laws apply to them and many British nationals think of their British passport as a ‘get out of jail free’ card. While consular staff will always try to assist British nationals who find themselves in difficulty abroad, we can’t interfere in another country’s legal processes.” “We want Britons to have a great time when they travel abroad so it is a good idea to research the country they are visiting before they travel. Country specific laws and customs can be found at www.gov.uk/foreigntravel-advice.”

Fast and Furious 6 - second only to Jurassic Park

The film “Fast & Furious 6”, much of whose exterior scenes were filmed here in Tenerife during September and October 2012, and was released in cinemas in May, has already become the second-highest grossing film in the history of Universal Pictures International, behind the leading “Jurassic Park.” At release, “Fast &

Furious 6” ranked first at the box office in 65 countries and received the biggest opening in the history of Universal in 41 territories. It was also the highestgrossing international box office on the weekend of its release, and is the second highest grossing film of 2013. Filming of “Fast and Furious” to Tenerife generated revenue of

eight million euros, the film has been an excellent promotion tool for the island highlighting some of its most beautiful places. Filming in Tenerife, involved using the island’s transport, board and lodging, also it produced a dynamic audiovisual of the island, having had a South film producer providing all kinds of services, among

others, logistics and casting. In recent years, Tenerife has become the set

for major motion pictures. The Tenerife Film Commission provides comprehensive advice

and assistance in areas such as locating hunting and obtaining permissions.

Cayuco arrives in Cristianos The arrival of a cayuco, or pateras as they are known, the small immigrant-carrying boats, has become, thankfully, something of a rarity on the shores of Tenerife in recent years. That was until last weekend, when a boat arrived carrying 26 illegal immigrants shortly after 5.30pm on Saturday afternoon. The maritime services intercepted it in the waters off Las Galletas harbour and it was towed to Los Cristianos. The occupants were thought to be all adult, of African origin. They

were helped by the Red Cross and said to all be in good health. It’s thought that

once ‘processed’ they are sent to the army barracks Hoya Fria in the north of the island.

Delving into those holiday suitcases! Leading scheduled leisure airline, Monarch has been taking a closer look into holidaymakers’ suitcases to find out what essential items its customers can’t leave at home when jetting off on their holidays.

Drug arrests National Police officers, assigned to the local police in the south of Tenerife have arrested two individuals - JVA, 30 years old, and JPH, 40, for alleged drug trafficking offences. The offences took place at the Arona Summer Festival on the 17th August. National Police presence was increased with the objective of

controlling consumption and trafficking of drugs, increasing public safety and deterring theft. The arrest of JVA and JPH, took place as they were conducting narcotics transactions in the vicinity of the enclosure. Once captured 4.30 grams of MDMA divided into 11 doses and

15.40 grams of the same substance divided into 24 doses was seized. MDMA is a synthetic narcotic typified by the World Health Organization as one of the most serious risks to health caused by the effects it causes in the body of those who consume it. The case is proceeding through the legal system.

And the results proved very interesting. In a recent survey by the airline, more than 1360 people answered the question: ‘What is the one thing you can’t live without and always take with you on holiday?’ The responses revealed that more than 12% cannot leave home without their favourite piece of

electronic equipment, including phones, tablet computers and music players. More than 8% always have a book or an e-reader with them and the same percentage have to take tea bags to ensure they can enjoy a ‘proper cup of tea’. Whilst some were concerned about what they are drinking, the same percentage were thinking more of the way they look, with another 8% making sure they packed a hair dryer or hair straighteners. For some, essentials included mayonnaise, mint sauce, slippers and toilet paper, whilst a few were a little more romantic with 4% saying they couldn’t leave home without their partner! When asked ‘What

is the most unusual thing you packed for your last holiday?’ the responses were a little more diverse with various food stuffs featuring widely including: • 14 packets of instant noodles • 24 curry pot noodles • Mustard powder • 2kg jelly babies • Dog food • Corned beef • Custard powder • Baked beans and tomato soup And not forgetting Marmite which 2% of respondents had in their suitcases. Non-food items were a little unusual too with 1% packing a hot water bottle and others taking a bath plug, a shower attachment, a long handled shoe horn and an extension lead.

GRANDMA ON DEATH-ROW LOSES APPEAL AN appeal by a British grandmother sentenced to death for trafficking drugs into Bali has been rejected by Indonesia’s top court. Lindsay Sandiford was sentenced to death by firing squad in January, and A three-judge panel at the Supreme Court in Jakarta unanimously dismissed her appeal. The 57-year-old Chel-

Page 8

tenham grannie was arrested in May 2012 at Bali airport when customs officers found the drugs in her luggage. Prosecutors say Sandiford was at the centre of a drugs ring involving three other Britons. She maintains she was forced to transport the drugs under duress because her children’s safety was threatened. The death sentence

came as a shock, especially as prosecutors recommended 15 years imprisonment. This was her second appeal against the ruling,but she can still seek a judicial review of the decision from the same court. After that, only the president can grant her a reprieve, although experts have said this seldom happens in such cases.

UK's recruiting Spanish nurses FORTY Spanish nurses have been recruited for Weston General Hospital in the UK after a recruitment drive.

The Weston Area Health Trust (WAHT), which runs the hospital, decided to recruit more nurses to increase safety following a staffing review according to a Bristol newspaper – This is Bristol. They needed to recruit additional nurses following a critical report from the Care Quality Commission published in June. Spain was chosen to fill the vacancies because of the shortage in the UK and the high clinical standards shown by nurses there. The WAHT said that the nurses were handpicked by the hospital for their nursing, clinical and communication

skills to fill their skills gap. Director of nursing at WAHT, Chris Perry said: “We already have a very dedicated and highly skilled nursing team at Weston and the nurses from Spain add real value to our patient care. Recruiting nurses from Weston and the south west is still our priority, but because there’s a national shortage of nurses, we decided to search internationally. “The nurses from Spain have all embraced this opportunity. They’ve settled in incredibly quickly, are delivering professional and compassionate care and are fast becoming popular members of the nursing team. Some have already bought partners and pets to settle with them in Weston.” The first group arrived in July and have just begun working full time. Registered nurse, Ne-

rea Rodriguez Amago, 24, from Madrid, said: “I’m a well-qualified and trained nurse and I saw this as a chance to develop my career and nursing skills. “We also have a free national health service in Spain, but there are differences. In Spain you have more patients to look after, so for example I’ve looked after 22 patients at once. However families do a lot more of the caring and sleep in the hospital, they aren’t restricted to visiting times. In the NHS you spend more time with patients and there’s more focus on dignity and comfort. You have much more time to take care of all the needs of the patient and not just their clinical health.” She added: “The people of Weston-superMare have been very nice and friendly and are always happy to help.”

Arico Horror

A woman has this week been arrested following the discovery of a newborn baby in the rubbish at the tip in Arico. Local Guardia Civil officers have arrested a 42-year-old woman in connection with the death of a newborn baby boy. The body was found at the Arico rubbish tip last Saturday. The investigation began after workers

at the Tajao waste processing centre alerted the authorities to their gruesome find, a small body, inside a container. An autopsy confirmed that the baby was alive when he was born and died only a few hours after birth. Investigators checked the origin of the rubbish which was being sorted. They then worked with health professionals in the area to identify

30th August - 5th September 2013

any known pregnant women who were due to give birth, but were not recorded at a medical centre or hospital. The DNA of the arrested woman and the baby are being tested to determine conclusively that the newborn is indeed the son of the accused. It’s thought that if this proves positive she will be charged with murder.

The latest Which? airport passenger survey reveals smaller airports are, on average, outperforming larger ones. They also reveal that queues at bag-drop desks often cancel out any benefits of using online checkin.

New research from Which? has found only three of the UK’s largest airports made it in to their top ten. Newcastle International (69%), Birmingham Terminal 1 (66%) and London Heathrow Terminal 5 (66%) all scored well. However, it was London Southend which was flying high with a customer score of 84% and a maximum five star rating in five of the ten categories assessed. Smaller airports including Humberside (81%), Robin Hood Doncaster

Sheffield (78%), London City (77%), Southampton (77%) and Blackpool (74%) also scored highly. London Luton was grounded with a customer score of just 43% and only two stars in almost all categories including speed of checkin, airport environment and toilets. London Heathrow’s Terminal 1 (45%) and Terminal 3 (46%) also scored poorly with a dismal two stars for airport design. They also found that online check-in is failing

to put an end to lengthy queues at our airports with very little difference in the time people waited at check-in desks compared to bag drop desks after checking in online. The member survey revealed Stansted airport consistently had the longest waits for check-in and bag drop and Southend airport again scored highly, with the average waiting time for bag drop 8 minutes, half the 16 minutes that you’d wait, on average, to drop off a

bag at Stansted. A third of Which? members list queuing as one of the most frustrating aspects of air travel. Which? executive director, Richard Lloyd, said: “Our research shows a jumbo jetsized gap in the performance of UK airports with smaller terminals generally performing better. "It is clear some of our major airports have some work to do if they are to keep more of their passengers satisfied.”

Canarian swimwear group branching out LENITA & XTG, the swimwear group based in the Canaries, has launched a project to go ahead with its new production plan in Spain.

The Beach Concept Factory will be operating under the framework of Zona Especial Canaria (ZEC, or Canary Islands special zone). It is expected to employ around 30 people to manufacture 300,000 swimwear pieces in the first year.

According to a ZEC statement, the Beach Concept Factory’s goal is to employ 40 to 45 people by the end of the third year in order to manufacture around 380,000 garments and implement its logistics facilities to accommodate other lines of innerwear, swimwear and sportswear as well. Lenita & XTG relocated a part of its production to China from the Canary Islands 10 years ago to meet the growing demand for its products in the European market. But the increase in production costs and rising wages, tariffs and transportation in the

Asian region caused a reverse of “offshoring” which occurred just over a decade ago. This forced Lenita & XTG to return to Spain under the shelter of the ZEC to develop new business. Nicole Mentado, daughter of designers Lenita Burman and Luis Mentado, of Lenita & XTG, would be overseeing the manufacturing of swimwear under the popular brand, in the first phase. In addition to manufacturing swimwear, the Beach Concept Factory would also provide courses and workshops related to processes of cutting and sewing for creating swimsuits.

Deathbed banker tells town - thanks a million THE death of a wealthy holidaymaker in 2007 left a Devon seaside resort awash with money - and flowers!

Keith Owen, who died at 69, made his fortune in the financial industry and travelled the world. But he always returned to his favourite place: the coastal town of Sidmouth, to where his mother had retired. Such was his love for the area that when he learned he was suffering lung cancer and had just eight weeks to live, he left the parish his eye-watering retirement fund, pension and a string of properties. The investment banker’s enormous £2.3m estate - £1.5m in cash and £800,000 from proper-

Page 12

ties - was handed over with a stipulation that it had to be spent keeping Sidmouth “beautiful”. And before he died, he also told officials

that some of the money should be spent on planting one million flower bulbs in the town. .Mr Owen, divorced with no children, was

born in nearby Totnes and spent most of his holidays in Sidmouth, where he admired its beach, blooms and Regency architecture.

He left all the money to the Sid Vale Association with instructions that the income from his legacy’s investments should be spent locally.

The group have now decided to honour one of his specific suggestions by planting one million bulbs in verges, gardens, lawns and flowerbeds. Rev Handel Bennett, vice-chairman of the Association, said: “Keith Owen saw voluntary action as evidence of a community at peace with itself. “The SVA, through Keith’s gift to the people of Sidmouth, has in the last five years provided many grants to local voluntary organisations totalling over £400,000. “Today, we are asking the local community to respond to the Plant A Million Bulbs challenge by volunteering to enhance our natural environment with additional colour. “Once planted, we expect the results will become evident next spring, and subsequent springs should be better, as the bulbs multiply.” He added: “Who knows, perhaps one day people will travel to see ‘a host of golden daffodils’, in the Valley of a Million Bulbs! “We hope it will fulfil Keith’s hope of an iconic spectacle, to be enjoyed by both residents and visitors.” Mr Owen, a former RAF pilot, left the service in 1976 to start a new life in Canada, hoping to build a career. He succeeded! He moved to Ottawa and became a Canadian citizen, but he returned for regular visits to Sidmouth, to see his old mum. After her death, he stayed in her small flat regularly and described Sidmouth as the “picture-perfect” English resort. Sadly, he died there in December 2007. Sidmouth Garden Centre is currently stockpiling the huge number of bulbs needed to complete the Plant a Million Bulbs challenge. The first wave will see 153,000 flowers planted at a community day on 26th October.

0845 numbers cost UK consumers a huge £1.3bn from their mobiles

A new study released by Post Office HomePhone and Broadband, reveals that consumers are spending £1.3billion pounds each year by making calls to 0845 and 0870 numbers from their mobile phones.

The study, which was carried out amongst 2,025 mobile phone users (both monthly tariff and pay as you go customers), found that one in four (24 per cent) make an average of one call per month to high call rate numbers from their mobile. One in ten (10 per cent) assumed these numbers would be included within their free monthly minutes allowance which has led to a quarter of UK

mobile phone users (25 per cent) experiencing ‘bill shock’ when they received a higher phone bill than anticipated. Reaching for a mobile phone to make these calls adds an average of £25 a year to a consumer’s mobile phone costs. Over a third of consumers (39 per cent) cite convenience as the main reason for choosing mobile over landline, whilst 23 per cent prefer to use their mobile even though they are aware they may incur a greater cost. One in seven (14 per cent) admit they have never considered the cost implications of calling from a mobile. Hugh Stacey, Head of Post Office HomePhone and Broadband, said: “It seems that in the age of on-the-go technology, we’re prioritising convenience over cost when it comes to making important

30th August - 5th September 2013

calls. Many companies, such as banks and utilities companies tend to use these numbers, so it’s useful to know that many providers, such as Post Office, offer free

calls to 0845 and 0870 numbers during evenings and weekends. “Most UK households have both a landline and mobile phone so by using the free calls on

the landline, UK consumers could save up £650million per year on these calls. We’re urging consumers to think twice before making calls to numbers with

a higher call charge on their mobile phones and consider making the most of the free landline calls to ensure they’re getting the best deal.”

Helicopter’s secrets of the black box to be unfolded

Women overpack two-thirds as they set off for holiday The average woman only wears a third of what they pack in their holiday suitcase, according to research by department store Debenhams.

The average female needs around 57 items in her suitcase for a two-week holiday, yet many women pack nearer to 150 items, ranging from skirts, tops and underwear, to swimwear, high heels and pyjamas – leaving nearly two thirds of the contents of their case unworn. Said Debenhams Services Manager, Anne Deegan, “A woman’s worst nightmare is being on holiday and wanting to wear something they’ve left behind. Not having the right shoes or jacket to match an outfit can ruin an evening abroad.” A staggering 79% of women questioned in the survey admitted to taking extra items away with them, with

Page 14

the most common reason for this being ‘just in case’. In addition to an outfit for every possible scenario, women in the survey of 1000 also admitted to packing more sun cream, makeup and hair appliances than they were likely to need on an average two-week holiday. Nearly a third (29%) of women surveyed said they had been caught out by excess baggage charges before, due to their overenthusiastic packing. Of these women, nearly half (13%) admitted to lying about the weight of their case to their partner before leaving for the airport, in fear of being made to unload items deemed unnecessary. Continues Anne Deegan, “Women plan their holiday wardrobe months in advance, with new dresses, shoes, swimwear and accessories purchased. Cases are packed full of new items, but women also want to take their favourite wardrobe staple summer items too – their fail-safe bi-

kini, beach cover-up and comfy wedges also have pride of place in their suitcase!” Packing enough clothes and accessories to last a month is not enough for some women, with nearly half (44%) saying they’d take an opportunity to shop for new items whilst holidaying abroad, returning with even more luggage crammed into their cases. Says Professor Karen J. Pine, “Women are tempted to take familiar items with them on holiday, often everything bar the kitchen sink! Knowing they have those home comforts makes them feel more secure and comfortable when they’re away. “Some people find traveling stressful, particularly when they’re unsure about the home comforts available at their holiday destination. They over-pack to help cope with those feelings of stress and reduce the uncertainty.” Daytime outfits were the biggest culprits for

remaining unworn by women, with most opting to spend their days around the pool or at the beach, wearing only swimwear and a few cover-ups for meals and walks. Accessories including hats, pashminas, shoes, jewellery, bags and sunglasses all take up space in a woman’s suitcase, when only a handful of these items will see the light of day once at the resort. Over half of women (56%) even pack their hand luggage with precision, cramming in a complete change of clothes, spare underwear, swimwear and shoes, plus an array of miniature toiletries in case their main case is lost in transit. The results will come as no surprise to men, who are used to trying to squeeze their partner’s luggage into the boot of the car alongside their own, smaller case. On the flip side, men on the other hand pack very lightly, with only an average of 40 items for a two week holiday.

THE black box flight recorder from the tragic Super Puma helicopter may have been located. The chopper, on its way back from an oil rig carrying workers, crashed off Shetland last week, killing four people. Salvage experts believe they know where the tell-take black box is because its locator beacon is still sending out signals from the seabed. But there still remain problems because a heavy sea swell is diffusing the signal, which means searchers cannot pinpoint an exact location. The rough conditions are also making it difficult for divers to search the seabed. The box should contain vital information about why the helicopter suffered a catastrophic loss of power. Without it, crash investigators have been unable to pinpoint a cause.

Salvage teams are focusing on an area half the size of a football pitch, and they have told Sky News they rate their chances of recovering the black box at “50-50”. Fortunately, sea conditions were expected to be calmer yesterday (Thursday), providing an opportunity for the searchers, before roughing up again. The crash was the fifth incident involving Super Pumas in the North Sea since 2009, and all flights by machines like the one which crashed have been suspended. The Unite union has stressed that it wants flights of all Super Pumas suspended until the cause of the tragedy is known. But representatives from across the North Sea oil and gas industry met yesterday for the second time in two days to decide whether to lift the ban.

Co-op £559m loss spells reduntancy THE Co-operative group’s pre-tax loss of £559m at the half-year point follows a writedown of £496m on loans at its troubled banking arm. The Co-operative Bank made a pre-tax loss of £709m in the six months to June, which will, inevitably, lead to job losses. Officials, there will be “no quick fixes as it begins a four-year turnaround plan. The Co-op does not expect its banking arm to make a profit for years, and warns that a restructuring of the business makes job losses “inevitable”. Group chief executive Euan Sutherland said: “This has been a difficult first half for The Co-operative Group, and the results highlight both the welldocumented challenges faced by The Co-operative Bank, and the sig-

nificant work to do at Group level. “Importantly, this announcement also underlines the need for the £1.5bn Capital Action Plan we announced in June to stabilise the Bank, which we now reaffirm and which remains on track.” He said there was “no plan B” for a bank rescue job, but he was confident bond holders would accept the current proposals. Mr Sutherland added: “We remain convinced of the considerable potential to be realised across the Group. “And we are confident that we are well placed to restore the Co-operative brand to its rightful place at the heart of communities up and down Britain.” Other parts of the business reported profits, the Co-op’s food group making £117m in the same period.

Couriers take a swing at airline charges New Which? research has revealed that travellers carrying sports equipment could save hundreds of pounds on a return flight to Spain if they use a luggage courier rather than paying an airline to transport their gear.

They found it would cost just under £140 to send a 30kg golf bag from London to Malaga and back with one courier, FetchMy, compared with £500 to put the bag in the hold on Ryanair flights – a saving of £360. Four of the five luggage couriers looked at beat the price charged for a 30kg golf bag if you were to fly with Jet2, Monarch, Ryanair and Thomson Airways. Quotes were for a dispatch from south-west London to the Malaga Holiday Inn Express. The difference was due to excess baggage charges imposed by the airlines. But they found the airlines looked at were cheaper than the cou-

riers if you take a standard 20kg suitcase. However, SendmyBag charged £6 less than Ryanair’s £35 fee for a oneway London to Malaga flight. A Which? spokesperson said: “It’s surprising that it can work out hundreds of pounds cheaper to get sports

gear chauffeured to your destination rather than putting it in the hold. It’s worth checking out the prices of couriers before booking your plane tickets but it will require a bit more forward planning as most couriers need to pick up bags a few days before departure.”

Firefighters’ strike beckons UK

BRITAIN is facing the threat of firefighters striking for the first time in a decade. The Fire Brigades Union (FBU) says they have voted by almost four to one in favour of a walk-out in a row over pensions, Union members backed industrial action by 18,277 votes to 5,166 - a majority of 78%. And the FBU stressed that planned changes to pensions were “unaffordable and unworkable” and would mean an increase in contributions by members. It added that the proposals would make it more likely for firefighters to be dismissed without a proper pension if they were unable to maintain fitness standards as they ap-

proach the retirement age of 60. Matt Wrack, FBU general secretary, said: “Expecting large numbers of 60-year-olds to fight fires and rescue families is dangerous to the public and to firefighters. “The Government is simply ignoring the evidence about the physical demands of firefighting, and has been unable to answer our con-

30th August - 5th September 2013

cerns during two years of negotiations. “None of us wants a strike, but we cannot compromise on public and firefighter safety. We hope common sense prevails, and the Government returns to the negotiating table.” Strike action must be taken within 28 days of the ballot taking place, but the union did not set dates, saying it would seek further talks with Government ministers and fire service employers in an attempt to resolve the dispute. The union said the Government’s own figures have shown that thousands of firefighters could face the sack without access to a proper pension, simply because they are getting older.

Students riding bus to a fortune TWO American students are in line to make a fortune after designing an incredible yet simple device.

And it could eventually wipe out bus and train passes for travellers.

They will have to wear the 3D-printed ring, which can be loaded with money and placed on a scanner, allowing them to pass through the turnstile. The “Sesame Ring” was created at MIT in Boston by the two engineering and design

undergraduates, who were fed up with having to search for their passes at the bottom of their bags. Olivia Wen Seow, one of the creators, told Sky News: “We thought it would be much easier to wear them - as an accessory - and the rings came as a natural solution.” The technology has been approved by the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority, and Ms Wen Seow said: “They want to bring the rings to transportation systems all over the world.” She added that they were looking at customising designs to make them more of a fashion accessory. The project has also been put on the funding website Kickstarter in the hope of attracting more backing. That would tenable them to buy a 3D printer and mass production moulds.

Why do kids of five get a mobile phone? STARTLING new figures reveal that nearly one in 10 children has a mobile phone by the age of five.

On average, youngsters are bought their first handset at the age of 11, soon after starting secondary school. But nearly 10% of parents admitted they bought their children a phone when they were five. The study - by comparison site uSwitch. com - also found that mums and dads spend an average £125 on their children’s gadgets - and around £246 on their own mobiles.

Page 16

But despite the cost, 42% said they hardly noticed their children’s phone bills. Only 25% of them capped their youngsters’ contracts, while 3% said they disabled the data function on their phones so that they could be used for making calls only, or for sending text messages. Surprisingly, kids spend an average of just £11 a month on their mobiles, against their parents’ £19. Yet 11% of youngsters spend more than their mothers or fathers. The study, involving 1,420 parents with under-16 –children, revealed that parents were likely to spend

more money on their first-born’s phone and bills than on those of any younger siblings. Ernest Doku, a telecoms expert at uSwitch.com, said: “As well as arming kids with mobiles for emergencies and peace of mind, I imagine that many parents have bought their kids smartphones to stop them commandeering their own when bored.” He suggested parents cap their children’s mobile bills, adding: “Make sure your kids are browsing the web using wi-fi when they’re at home, instead of consuming data by connecting to the internet via 3G or 4G.”

Tough Mudders get there TENERIFE duo Linsey Sloan and Lorraine Mckeon took on the Tough Mudder Challenge at the weekend in Scotland - and finished in one piece! At the time of writing the girls are winging their way back to Tenerife, having survived the 12-mile assault course, and we hope to have an interview for next week’s paper, with a total figure of the amount raised. Lorraine, owner of the Palms Chippy in Las Americas, also donated 50% of the takings to our fund, for which we are eternally grateful. Thank you, Highland Paddy A couple of months ago, we were alerted to the sad story of Tilly, a Los Gigantes street cat, who was fed by the Highland Paddy staff. After going missing for a few days, he showed up with horrendous injuries, according to manager Kelly. Wheels were put in motion and Live Arico collected Tilly from Los Gigantes and took him to Dr Gilbert in Las

Americas. The report from Dr Gilbert after a lengthy, complex and expensive operation, was not easy on the ear! Tilly’s leg was broken badly in three places along with some nasty, open wounds where his skin had grafted to the open bone. It looked as though he had been hit by a car, which has resulted in Tilly having a metal pin placed in his leg - and the need for lengthy recuperation. On hearing about Tilly, staff at Highland Paddy 3 decided to do a bit of fund-raising to assist with the vet’s bill. A raffle plus a Name the Dog draw was started, and Miss Kitty, from Top Hat and Heels, had an impromptu collection which alone raised 106.47 euros. On top of that, staff member Shane Pearce emptied his money box and donated 24.50 euros. The total raised by staff and customers from Highland Paddy 3

was an awesome 462.82 euros. As for Tilly, the pin has worked its way out of his leg on its own and he is set to have a check-up in the next week or so. After that, it’s hoped that with a couple more weeks of quiet recuperation, he’ll be back up and running again. Live Arico thank the following for their help and assistance: the staff, management and customers from Highland Paddy 3, Miss Kitty (Top Hat and Heels), Sharon (Cats Welfare) and Dr Gilbert, in Las Americas.

EasyJet confirms London Gatwick to Jersey service EasyJet, the UK’s largest airline, has announced that it is increasing its services to Jersey with the introduction of year-round flights from London Gatwick Airport.

From 30 March 2014 easyJet will operate three flights per day, seven days a week offering the choice of a morning, afternoon and evening departure each way. The new service will go on sale in September 2013. The announcement follows a deal secured by easyJet earlier this year to purchase 25 additional slots at Gatwick Airport from Flybe. Since then, the airline has worked to enhance connections between London Gatwick and Jersey and the new flight will be operated by an Airbus A319 aircraft with the capacity of 156 seats. Jersey becomes destination number 102 for easyJet from London Gatwick following the announcement of its new services to Bucharest which will commence in October 2013.

Cath Lynn, easyJet’s Group Commercial Director said: “We are pleased to confirm the introduction of easyJet’s new flights between London Gatwick and Jersey from Spring 2014, which underlines our continued commitment to serving the destinations that our customers tell us that they want to fly to on our easy and affordable services. “The new early flight which departs London Gatwick at 07:00 will allow business travellers to reach Jersey in time for a full day of meetings while the evening departure enables them to fly home on the same day and offers travellers from Jersey a full day in the capital and evening flights back. The introduction of low cost seats will also help to boost tourism to the island with the daily flights giving maximum flexibility for those visiting Jersey on short or long breaks.” easyJet’s London Gatwick service to Jersey brings the total number of easyJet routes to the island to five alongside its existing services from London Southend, Liverpool, Glasgow and Newcastle.

British Airways helps school-leavers to soar As hundreds of thousands of students received their GCSE results, British Airways is offering more opportunities for school leavers than ever before.

The airline has recruited almost 200 apprentices in the past year, with similar numbers planned for 2014 and beyond. Since British Airways reintroduced its Heathrow Engineering apprenticeship schemes in 2010, almost 350 apprentices have been recruited. Several other departments have followed suit and the airline now offers a range of 10 difference schemes, including Operations, World Cargo, People Services and Finance Services. Most are open to students from the age of 16, with IT and Project Management courses also available for those over 18. Kim Reid, head of talent and leadership at British Airways, said: “Over the last three years, we have made a

real effort to grow our apprenticeship programmes, as we recognise that they offer an excellent opportunity for school leavers, while providing British Airways with energy, talent and fresh ideas. “We are set to continue this investment over the coming years, and are currently exploring options to introduce even more courses.” Apprenticeships allow school leavers to have the best of both worlds, providing valuable

workplace experience and on the job training through college partners. Abdul Noor, 19, currently a project management apprenticeship, said: “It was drilled into me at school that I should go to University, but then the fee rise made me think again. I wanted to get stuck in and learn on the job instead. “As I move through different placements, I’m getting a lot of exposure to the business and

there is a lot of trust in me. I’m treated like an adult and everyone has been incredibly supportive.” British Airways works with a number of different training providers on apprenticeships, including Farnborough College of Technology, Kingston College, Brooklands College, Uxbridge College and East Berkshire College. The airline also works closely with the National Apprenticeship Service.

It is the last of the semi-finals. Sixteen celebrities started in the battle to be crowned 2013 champion but now only five remain and just one challenge stands between them and a place in the final. They must cook a dish for some of the country's most feared restaurant critics - Jay Rayner, Tracey MacLeod and Charles Campion. Serving food to these masters of the dining room is a daunting task for even the most adept of chefs. The celebrities' choice of dish is the only challenge that could secure them a place in the final week if they succeed, but will their ingredients, flavours and presentation be enough to impress? Or will they fall short of the mark and lose their chance to become the next Celebrity MasterChef champion? Not everyone can go through to the final and only the best cooks will still be in the running to earn the title of Celebrity MasterChef.

Secret Dealers In the final episode of the series, the dealers offer a recordbreaking amount of money to homeowners Jim and Beryl, who have been avid collectors for decades. There are some stunning items to bid for, including a roomful of 19th century china, a beautiful Victorian skeleton clock and a magnificent diamond and enamel Victorian gold snake bangle. This attracts the highest bid for a single item ever seen on Secret Dealers. With individual pieces worth thousands of pounds, and with over one hundred separate items up for grabs, this is one amazing finale.

16:00 .............Long Lost Family Davina McCall and Nicky Campbell present the series which aims to reunite family members after years of separation. Seven years ago, 68-year-old Brenda Rhensius retired to South Africa after a successful career in banking. But throughout her life she has been haunted by the decision she made as a pregnant teenager back in Warrington in 1963. At 19, with no money and no prospects, she reluctantly agreed to give her baby up for adoption. The show also follows Maureen Clancy's search for her big brother Michael. Forty years ago Michael was disowned by her parents and cast out of the house. He has never been seen since and Maureen has spent most of her life trying to find out why.

Jamie and Laura are now officially a couple, but Jamie is concerned that Laura's not really into him as she won't go public with the news and tell her parents or friends. Laura tells him that keeping it secret will make it easier for them to 'be together', but he soon becomes frustrated with Laura's reluctance about moving forward on any front. Mike is throwing a party to celebrate the end of exams, but keeping it under the radar to ensure only the cool crowd get to hear about it. Beth gets a huge shock when she spoils her previously flawless academic record by getting a B. She begins to question her whole identity as the 'smart girl'. Alan tries to drag Janet back to counselling. She's spending so much time at work that he's starting to feel neglected. Janet surprises him by taking him away for the weekend, but Alan is disappointed when she reveals the purpose of the trip.

International investigative documentary series. British survivors of January 2013's terrorist attack on a gas plant in Algeria tell their dramatic and harrowing stories. Thirty nine people died and dozens of foreign workers were taken hostage after al Qaeda terrorists stormed the sprawling facility in the Sahara desert and the Algerian army responded with overwhelming force. For the first time survivors tell the inside story of their miraculous escape playing cat and mouse with their captors, being forced to wear a necklace of explosives and coming under fire from Algerian army helicopter gunships. This programme asks why it was seemingly so easy for the terrorists to enter the plant and why the Algerians reacted in the way they did.

NCIS Channel 5, 20:00

US crime drama series. When the NCIS team learns of the shocking murder of one of their former investigative assistants, they soon find out that the victim has been selling information on how to rob a warehouse full of expensive possessions. Meanwhile, a new special agent is added to the team.

Knowing that Paul will be watching their every move and prove, they must bake 36 perfectly thin and crispy signature bread sticks, a technically tricky English Muffin, and the most outrageous loaves of bread ever seen on television - from a Christmas wreath to a proud peacock and a psychic octopus. Plus there is a look at the rise in popularity in Georgian England of the muffin, initially distributed by a network of muffin men, now immortalised in the famous nursery rhyme. Mary and Paul use the challenges to find out what type of bakers they are and exactly how far they can push their baking skills, and at any time, two bakers might be asked to leave.

Doc Martin ITV1, 21.00 Wedding bells are ringing for the Doc and Louisa. But will the marriage finally go ahead? The Doc is irritated by PC Penhale, who wrongly presumes he is best man, plus Louisa is late... The Reverend has his doubts as to whether she will turn up, putting Martin on edge. But she does, looking beautiful and at long last they tie the knot. Later at the wedding reception Martin is even more irritated by the swarms of villagers who have turned up to celebrate; he thought it was going to be a small wedding. Louisa gets defensive; she thinks it is lovely that the villagers have turned up to wish them well. They try to sneak off early from the party, but Bert reveals he is driving them to a secret location for their wedding night. Louisa is thrilled thinking that Martin has arranged the surprise. But it is actually a present to them from the villagers. Ruth offers to look after baby James Henry for the night. The honeymoon lodge is in the middle of nowhere and is perfect, apart from Bert driving off with their suitcases. They light a fire and settle down to enjoy a glass of champagne, but smoke fills the room, the chimney is blocked. They manage to put the fire out, but the room is ruined. Martin charges off into the night to find some help; Louisa teeters behind him in her wedding dress and heels, trying to keep up. As time ticks by, it is getting darker and Martin and Louisa start to bicker; Louisa is adamant they are lost. They hear a blood curdling scream and a man shouting. Martin is terrified, but Louisa is a country girl and knows it is just a farmer scaring off foxes. She perks up; where there is a farmer, there must be a farm house, and a phone.

Countrywise ITV1, 20.00 Countrywise returns for a brand-new series, exploring the best of Britain’s coast and country, and joining series regular, farming and agricultural expert Paul Heiney, will be new additions, intrepid adventurer Ben Fogle and wildlife biologist Liz Bonnin. Immersing viewers in the changing face and hidden beauty of rural Britain, the fresh mix of items in the new series will explore our countryside’s best stories and key issues, encompassing wildlife, conservation, farming, science and along the way meeting those who live and work there. In this first episode Liz will be investigating why our butterfly population is in decline and how we can all help to conserve this beautiful, delicate insect. With a long term forecast of uncertain weather over the next five to 10 years, the human race can prepare themselves to some extent for extreme climates, but what about the natural world? Winged insects such as bees, moths and butterflies have really suffered due to the late cold spring, so what does the future hold for them? Liz meets butterfly expert Matthew Oates, who has been studying butterflies for 50-years, and knows that these delicate creatures need warm summers and dry spring weather as much as we do. Meanwhile, Ben is in Wales where he takes a look at the beautiful patchwork countryside on the edge of the Brecon beacons, a natural canvas for wildlife and plants…and lavender. Nestled in these Welsh hills is a farm producing a lavender crop, and Ben meets Nancy Durham, the woman whose love of lavender brought this farm to life and who took a huge leap of faith ten years ago when she left her corporate life in Canada behind to settle in the Welsh hills and follow her dream to cultivate lavender full time. As Ben discovers, this lavender farm has really brought an air of Provence to the Welsh valleys. Paul pays a visit to Shropshire to get a sense of just how big an impact the recent weather extremes have had on the people who live and work in the countryside there.

With the net closing in on the thieves, the programme reveals what happened when it began to dawn on the robbers that they might have a car that was too hot to handle. Elsewhere, jeweller Raj Pattni risks his life as armed intruders break into his shop and start to ransack his jewellery cabinets, swinging at them with a baseball bat and smashing the windscreen of their getaway van. And Julia investigates a 'smart' CCTV system that enables cameras to recognise a face entering the premises and alert the business owner if it belongs to a known criminal.

W C choice Aussie Animal Island ITV1, 19.30 Aussie Animal Island, narrated by Jason Donovan, sees a group of Tasmanian Devils hauled from the luxury of Australian zoos and sanctuaries then released into the wilds of a remote island. If they can fend for themselves they might just save their entire species from extinction. But how will the island’s teeming wildlife cope with the arrival of their new neighbours? The Tasmanian Devil is a marsupial carnivore whose name derives from the ferocious growls and cries that terrified the early European settlers at night. Devils only live wild in the island state of Tasmania but the species is threatened with extinction. Since 1996 the Tasmanian Devil has fallen prey to a highly contagious facial cancer that has already wiped out eighty per cent of the wild population. Following the extinction of the Tasmanian Tiger, in 1936, the very real prospect of losing the species due to the Devil Facial Tumor Disease (DFTD) has mobilised the world’s scientific community. Now, a team of scientists has hatched an audacious plan to save these devilishly delightful little critters from extinction. They will create an ‘insurance’ population of disease-free Devils on an island off the coast of Tasmania. It’s a risky experiment – because ‘disease-free’ means ‘captive’ and the hand-reared animals have never hunted for themselves, found shelter or faced a predator. The current residents of the island - wombats, penguins, kangaroos and geese – must also adapt to the presence of these aggressive new arrivals or else they and their young may die. Using the latest technology, Aussie Animal Island will follow the selection process, transportation, release and the fortunes of fifteen devils as they unwittingly fight for the survival of their kind. The series follows the Devils as they rediscover their natural instincts to hunt, mate, and – with a little luck – rear their own in this make or break year for the many mammals, marsupials and birds on Aussie Animal Island.

Goodnight Britain From treating the victims of road crashes to paragliders who have come crashing to earth, this programme shows how staff in the centre prepare for a patient, operate on them - sometimes in urgent life-saving circumstances - and help them on their way to recovery. It also focuses on the emotional impact on the victims and their loved ones when faced with trauma. Dr Iain Beardsell, a consultant in emergency medicine, explains the trauma centre at Southampton University Hospital is one of 12 such units throughout the country, and is totally focused on caring for the patients it receives. “It’s not acceptable any more for the sickest to be looked after by what we called ‘the thickest’, which is what emergency medicine was when I was training. We have to supply a standard of care that is second to none, and the standard of care we supply to our trauma patients here I think is comparable to anywhere in the world.” Featured in the first episode are: Andrew Davies, a 25-year-old who was thrown head-first from a minibus when it rolled over on the motorway. He has multiple injuries, but most concerning are his spinal injuries, as he is unable to feel or move his legs. Doctors fear his injuries will be life-changing. Michael McCallum, a 14-year-old who is rushed into resuscitation with serious head and chest injuries following a road accident on his paper round. After showing positive signs, Michael suddenly goes into cardiac arrest and doctors have to open him up to try to save his life. Simon Parsons, who is airlifted to the trauma centre after his motorcycle hit central reservation barriers at speed. His right leg sustains one of the most severe muscle damage injuries the orthopaedic teams have seen and surgeons have to make the decision whether to save it. Andrew’s mother Karen Knighton explains how she heard the news of the motorway crash: “The doorbell went and that knock on the door changed it all completely. Changed it for me but more so for Andrew. You don’t know what’s around the corner.” Director of major trauma Dr Andy Eynon tells Andrew he’s not going to pull any punches when he takes him for a scan which might reveal he is never going to walk again. He says one of the most difficult parts of his job is talking patients and their families through the repercussions of major trauma: “You really do not ever want to meet me in a professional situation because almost by definition it is the worst of times.”

The Midwives: Delivering Under Pressure BBC2, 21:00

Series following the work of midwives at Birmingham Women's Hospital. This episode focuses on different methods of delivery. Midwife Maureen prefers to work on the birth centre where birthing pools, aromatherapy massage oils and 'a bit of witchcraft' are all on offer to help deliver babies as nature intended. Midwife Antoinette has tried the birth centre approach but much prefers the high tech no-nonsense environment of the delivery suite. For her it's about being prepared for anything, especially when you deal with high risk pregnancies where the situation can change in an instance, that's when you need the painkilling drugs and high-tech medical equipment to be readily on-hand. Giving birth in the midwife led birth centre is almost ÂŁ200 cheaper for the NHS than having a baby in the more clinical delivery suite but not all mums are confident in making the 'natural' choice.

CSI: NY Channel 5, 21:00

US crime drama series. The CSIs discover the body of a woman dressed in a ballgown after draining a lake in search of a murder weapon. Meanwhile, Adam entertains two little girls who are stuck waiting for their mother at the NYPD bullpen with a tale of intrigue.

Both families in today's show prove that it can be done. The Goodes have a modern two-bedroomed home and have budgeted £15K to extend it. The results are impressive. Leon and Lindsey Samson have taken a huge risk and started work on their home before planning permission has been granted. They simply cannot afford to waste time waiting.

Chandler, Miles and the team investigate a series of bizarre and macabre murders that set them on edge. A darkness pervades their cases; something unsettling, something that lurks in the shadows that makes you not want to turn out the lights. Buchan is challenged to use his extraordinary resource of archive material to find historical precedents. Can he give the team the edge over a series of ruthless and cunning adversaries? This series touches on historical precedents such as witchcraft, cold war espionage, ghoulish Victorian surgeons, cryptozoology and hidden horrors in the East End’s underground tunnels. The history of Whitechapel as a centre of evil comes to the fore. The world remains a shadowy, gothic place, infused with history, dripping with the blood of the past. In Whitechapel, history isn’t dead, it’s deadly.

Thursday Thursday T 06:00 ............................ Breakfast 09:15 ...................Rip Off Britain

Pat & Cabbage ITV1, 20.30 Pat & Cabbage is a comedy about the ever-changing generation shifts in today’s modern world. Finding themselves single for the first time in decades, Pat (Barbara Flynn) and Cabbage (Cherie Lunghi) have finally acquired financial, familial and moral freedom and they’re exploiting it to the max. Pat and her best friend Cabbage have no intention of growing old gracefully - although their children really wish they would. Pat’s eldest daughter Helen (Rosie Cavaliero) is married to Jim, and together they have a three year old son, Jack. In an attempt to kick-start a new career, Helen is now re-training to be a therapist, which she likes to think gives her a unique perspective on the personal lives of those around her. Her family would disagree. Helen’s husband, Jim (Marcus Garvey) is a dreamer but sees himself as a creative entrepreneur – whether it be manufacturing mozzarella in his kitchen or making wine racks from old sewage pipes, Jim is always trying new ventures with varying degrees of success. His boundless optimism makes him a constant source of fun. And sometimes chaos. Pat’s youngest daughter, Nicola (Diane Morgan) is bumping along in an on/ off (mostly off) relationship with PE teacher Toby. Pat’s concerned about the risk of Nicola “leaving it too late” but this strikes Nicola as hypocritical. Isn’t the fact that Nicola’s got a job and financial independence exactly what Pat and “her lot” spent most of the sixties fighting for? Nicola’s happiest when affectionately taking the mick out of Dylan, with whom she unexpectedly finds some common ground. Dylan (Tom Turner) is Cabbage’s only son and her pride and joy. Now in his forties, he’s the most successful underachiever of all his friends. But it’s ok – his mother enables his Peter Pan lifestyle by continuing to let him live with her, rent-free. Pat & Cabbage explores the generational shifts in a 21st century world wholly different to what’s come before – and what it means these days to be the age we are, where sixty year olds run marathons and forty year olds wonder if they’re too young to settle down. Above all it’s about friendship, family and the sometimes catastrophic ripple effect of finding a new lease of life.

The Guilty ITV1, 21.00 Lives are torn apart when a young child goes missing in new three-part drama The Guilty. The Guilty is set across two timelines – 2008 and present day – and tells the story of DC Maggie Brand (Tamsin Greig - Episodes, Friday Night Dinner), who investigates the disappearance of little Callum Reid whilst coping with her own young son’s diagnosis with autism. Following an annual neighbourhood barbecue, Claire and Daniel Reid frantically search for Callum when they awake to find him missing. Katherine Kelly (Mr Selfridge, Coronation Street) and Darren Boyd (Case Sensitive, Dirk Gently) play the young couple living in hope that their son will one day be found. Five years on, Arcadian Gardens is a very different place. An address synonymous with tragedy. The grief-stricken parents and their neighbours lives were torn apart by the events of that weekend, not least that of Callum’s big brother, Luke. Then, on the eve of the fifth anniversary of his disappearance, Callum’s body is discovered, buried only yards from his own front door. And the nightmare begins all over again. DCI Maggie Brand leads the new investigation. Pregnant when Callum went missing, debilitating morning sickness had forced her to step down from the original investigation. Her son, Sam, was born only a few months after Callum disappeared. Now he’s starting school and Maggie has to deal with her own feelings of loss, as she confronts the reality that her little boy is very different to the other children in his class. Driven by her obsession to discover what happened to Callum, Maggie leaves no stone unturned in piecing together the events of that fateful night.

Hairy Bikers Meals on Wheels Back on the Road BBC2, 20:00 In 2011 the Hairy Bikers undertook their biggest challenge yet, riding to the rescue of meals on wheels. They wanted to rejuvenate the vital service, which delivers a hot lunch and a much needed face to face visit to Britain's elderly and infirm, into a lean mean catering machine fit to roll out across 21st century Britain. Now Si and Dave are back on the road, keen to find out if their plans have flourished or fallen apart at the seams. The Bikers head north to Slaithwaite in West Yorkshire where Si and Dave helped a team of volunteers start a brand new meals on wheels. Si and Dave always wanted other local communities to be inspired to start their very own meals on wheels so they're thrilled to discover a pub along the valley in Golcar now cooking meals that are delivered by volunteers around the village. In the mood for a celebration, they gather friends old and new for some slap-up food and a good old dance.

Coming soon - Peaky Blinders

Peaky Blinders is an epic, six-part gangster drama set in the lawless streets of post-war Birmingham on the cusp of the 1920s. Britain in 1919 is a tumultuous mix of despair and hedonism, a nation cleaned out by the extravagances of the Great War. Returning soldiers, newly minted revolutionaries and criminal gangs all fight for survival in an industrial landscape gripped by economic upheaval. Thomas Shelby and his family run the most feared and powerful local gang, the Peaky Blinders. Named for their practice of sewing razor blades into the peaks of their caps, they make money from illegal betting, protection and the black market. But Tommy’s ambitions go beyond running the streets, and when a crate of guns goes missing from an arms factory, he recognises an opportunity to move up in the world. Crime pays, but business pays better. As rival gangs, Communist revolutionaries and IRA Fenians descend on Small Heath in pursuit of the weapons, Winston Churchill dispatches a ruthless police chief from Belfast to impose order on an increasingly lawless city and recover the guns. Peaky Blinders is a dazzling picture of England taken directly from the pages of our secret history. They will now burst into life in a vibrant evocation of a hedonistic age. The Shelbys will be a family to be reckoned with. Peaky Blinders is a six-part drama series for BBC Two by Caryn Mandabach Productions and Tiger Aspect Productions. It is created by Steven Knight, and written by Steven Knight, Stephen Russell and Toby Finlay. It is directed by Otto Bathurst and Tom Harper, and produced by Katie Swinden.

MORE TEA, ANYONE? THE nominations’ process for the annual Tenerife Entertainment Awards began one week ago.

More than 1,000 votes were cast in the first weekend, and the online social networks are starting to buzz about #TEAS2013. Twelve categories of entertainer are up for nomination, and this year has seen a lot of new acts on the Island. Many of them will not only qualify for Best Newcomer but also have the talent to be nominated as Best Vocalist, (Male & Female) Best Compere - or any of the other nine categories in which their act would fit. Nominations are carried out mainly via Facebook, with the Tenerife Entertainment Awards page taking private messages as one nomination per category. Anyone can nominate any Tenerife entertainer, so visit the page and be a part of it. There are some who choose not to be involved in the build-up, or the event itself, and complain about the amount of exposure the TEAs get

during the build-up. This is obviously driven by the Island’s entertainers who, via social networks, promote themselves and their work on this wonderful FREE platform in order to be considered for an award. This is free publicity for the artiste, and

for the Tenerife entertainment scene in general. The TEAs also raise the profile of Tenerife as a holiday destination for anyone looking for vibrant and varied entertainment during their days and nights. This circuit has taken a battering over the last few years with bars

struggling or closing, or having to cut down their entertainment budget. Some acts have left, while others now have daytime jobs as well as treading the boards in the evening. Yet there are some who haven’t struggled at all and have been able to sidestep into other roles. A decade ago, bragging rights went to the act which was performing two or three shows six nights a week. Those days may never return and today, acts are happy doing one show a night, six nights a week - and any more is a bonus. Entertainers are an integral part of why people come to Tenerife, and they deserve a little recognition for the hard work they do. It’s not nice to see the negativity directed at enthusiastic entertainers on Facebook, who are following their dream. Admittedly, there have been a few deluded souls over the years, but the circuit is now more varied, packed with some serious talent this year and stronger than it has been for a long time. As for the deluded souls, they are back in the UK, singing karaoke in their local

after a hard day’s work in Tesco, telling tales of when they were a Tenerife “entertainer” (for three weeks). When big names like Rihanna win awards, they have PR agents and record labels promoting their artistes, in order for them to collect various accolades. Tenerife’s entertainers are as much a commodity to themselves as any superstar - they are their own PR agents, Publicists, Costume Designers, Accountants and Promoters, as well as being The Performers. So it should be expected and accepted that an entertainer would want promote his or her business. But it would be so welcome to see the venues promoting their own acts for a nomination. Most have Facebook accounts, which will be populated mainly with holiday-makers who have been in the audience, have seen the

artiste in question and are the perfect people to ask to get involved. This year’s awards’ ceremony will be hosted by Joe Ferguson, who was Oasis Fm’s Lunchtime presenter for over five years before returning to Northern Ireland. We will also be treated to a performance from DIVA, the Maxine & Shelley duo who appeared BBC1’s 2013 The Voice and did so well. They actually met some years ago on the Tenerife circuit, and each won the TEAS’ Best Female Vocalist award in successive years. There is always so much more, and I can’t wait. It takes place on 13th October and its going to be brilliant. Listen to the interview with DIVA hours before they appeared on The Voice by following this link: www.soundcloud.com/jamiedrew/ interview-bbcs-the voice-s2

THIS week I was invited into the back corridors of Tramps nightclub to the secret office of Olly Fisher, who is manager of Tenerife’s King Of Clubs. I wanted to find out what it’s like looking after a venue like Tramps. Olly began life in Tenerife as a “cheeky little PR” for Tramps and, over the years, has progressed through different roles as barman, bar supervisor and assistant manager and now manager. He is responsible for a multitude of things, including the hiring and firing of staff, stock, staff rotas - and discipline! He also looks after the DJs and has to oversee the day-to-day running of three venues within Tramps. Olly is now breathing a sigh of relief because the big summer events went without a hitch. No wonder he is so pleased because he organised the lot. You would be forgiven for thinking that an outside company had been brought in to arrange the big names, but No, Olly does it all himself: booking the celebs, promoting the events and running the club. Busy man. There are still a few more events to go before the official summer-closing party when, incidentally, nothing actually closes. It’s just so that Olly can have a winter opening party! The next event is on Wednesday (4th Sept) and features Chidgey, from MTV’s The Valleys, and Tomorrowland’s Ben Nicky. All the details are on the flyer to the right. It was nice having an insight into the life of a Tenerife club manager, who has been through the ranks, even though it was at 3am over an apple juice.

My, how this time flies by By Sue McDonald HOW quickly the Summer is going, although I’m not sure parents would agree with me!

Every business has to be flexible to survive, and that’s exactly what we like to think we have done. We’ve changed from doing complete furniture packs for new buyers - when we couldn’t even keep up with people buying apartments - to offering part-furnishings, and, nowadays, dealing mainly with our 800 existing clients. Many of them bought from us in the first place years ago, and they are now replacing curtains and re-upholstering sofas etc. There are the occasional “new” buyers, of course, but they are few and far between. We still work with all our original factories, so if any of our existing clients want extra pieces of furniture to match, we can help them. But apparently, the dates for the Swallows’ (UK summer and Tenerife winter) arrival, isn’t until mid-to-late October, well after the kids have gone back to school. Actually, that’s just the excuse Gilly and I were looking for to extend our “working from home” rule for a few more weeks!

We’ve had a number of Deco Nuevo calls - enough to keep us quite busy with bits and pieces, but few enough to make us think that we did exactly the right thing in moving out of the shop for a couple of months. I remember that it was very frustrating being there for days on end last year without any serious business to be done. But I did give my sister a good thrashing on internet Scrabble. This year, we’ve managed to keep on top of the Deco Nuevo work from home, and we have also been able to forge ahead with our Agefix anti-aging products. These are all the products which can turn back the hands of time to keep us all looking young and healthy for years.

If you haven’t had a chance to have a look, go to www.facebook. com/agefix to see what we are up to. And yes, I am still treating only half my face with the galvanic spa, so you will be able to see the difference for yourself if you bump into me. So, we are going to carry on working from home (we all know that daytime TV is bad for you, but it is strangely addictive) until October. Meanwhile, if you do need any upholstery work doing, need a few bits of furnishings, sofa or sofa beds, curtains etc, you can still ring us on the shop number below, and we will come to see you with the catalogues. And, of course, we do still have our warehouse in Buzanada if you wish to see samples. You can see in the photo what we can achieve with reupholstery: a miraculous reinvention at a fraction of the replacement cost. So carry enjoying your summer, and we will be back soon.

Cons cost consumers A new Which? survey reveals consumers who are falling foul of a scam lose on average £1,488, with holiday scams tricking people out of the most money on average.

In the survey of Which? members, they found that holiday scams are costing victims on average £3,677. In the past three years two-thirds (66%) of Which? members have been exposed to a scam, or they know someone who has. Seven in 10 (72%) people surveyed say that they’ve noticed

an increase in scam correspondence in the last three years, and eight in 10 (79%) were concerned about a friend or family member being tricked. Consumers are becoming more savvy about recognising certain scams – 94% in the survey that were exposed to phishing emails did not respond to them. But they find that the scammers are becoming more sophisticated and finding new ways to get consumers’ personal details and money. Online shopping scams are most likely to catch consumers out – three-quarters (73%) exposed to online shopping scams were tricked, losing £112 on average. Other common

THE RISE OF THE ‘LBK’ Every woman loves her trusted ‘Little Black Dress’; perfect for any occasion as it goes with just about everything in the wardrobe.

This season, however, expect to hear a new phrase – The ‘Little Black Kitchen’ (LBK) – as kitchens across the UK are given some love and change to a desirable gloss black. The UK’s largest home improvement retailer, B&Q has already seen a rise in its black kitchens as trendsetters transform their kitchens with a look that is as dramatic as it is neutral – easily working with any colour scheme in the home. Specifically, the LBK offers homeowners a neutral palette to work from, allowing for pops of colour to be added throughout. Feature

walls also work well in a LBK, adding a bold statement to complement darker kitchens. And it’s not just black kitchens that are on the rise. The trend to invest in black appliances for the kitchen over white has increased from last

scams include document processing sites, with half (50%) of those exposed to the scam falling for it, premium texts (46%), holiday scams (43%) and investment scams (25%). Which? executive director Richard Lloyd, said: “It’s encouraging that consumers are becoming more vigilant about spotting common scams but as the scammers get more sophisticated, many people are still falling victim, with some being left severely out of pocket. “Consumers should treat any unexpected correspondence with suspicion and be particularly wary of anything that sounds too good to be true.”

Bill McKimm, Category Director for kitchens at B&Q says: “We have a wide range of kitchens to suit any taste, including two black kitchens which are perfect for those desiring a modern, high end transformation. Black goes with any colour scheme, so is an easy choice for those unsure as to which shade to pick. Team a black kitchen with an exposed brick work wall to help to add an urban contrast to your ultra modern kitchen.”

Rosemary Garden jobs By David Hudgell It’s the perfect time to take cuttings of your rosemary herb, which will boost your plant’s growth.

Snip off shoots without flowers and pop them in a plastic bag. Seal it and keep it in a shady spot to prevent wilting until you are ready to root the cuttings. Snip off shoots of new growth 10cm - 15cm long. To reduce moisture loss, remove most of the lower leaves so you have a clean length of stem. Use a knife to cut off the base of the stem just below a leaf node - the point from which the leaves grow. Dip the stem ends in hormone rooting powder to speed up

the rooting process. Fill pots with a gritty compost mix. Insert several rosemary cuttings around the edge, or plant individually in seed tray modules. Water in cuttings from above to settle compost around their stems. Place pots in a shel-

tered, shaded area, indoors in a propagator or simply cover with a plastic bag to retain the moisture. After a few weeks, gently check for signs of root development. Mist over foliage and ensure the compost stays moist. Once they have a

good root system, tease cuttings apart and pot up individually into a loam-based compost. Keep plants watered and pot them on again as they get larger and the roots fill their container. They should be big enough to plant out in the following spring

Wild about gardens In October, gardeners and community groups across Britain will unite in an effort to halt the decline of UK species.

Could gardens save Britain’s wildlife? The Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) and The Wildlife Trusts (TWT) are spearheading a new initiative to help halt the decline of animals such as hedgehogs and butterflies here in the UK, and are calling on the public to get involved in ‘Wild About Gardens Week’ (25–31 October, 2013). In May, the State of Nature report, compiled by 25 wildlife organisations, found that 60% of the 3,148 UK animal and plant species assessed have declined in the past 50 years for a range of reasons including loss of habitat. For example, hedgehog numbers have reduced by a third since the millennium and tortoiseshell butterflies, once common in gardens,

have declined by 77%. In reaction to this, the RHS and TWT have teamed up to raise awareness and are urging the public to get involved. The RHS will encourage its 3,300 community gardening groups, 17,250 schools, 145 Partner Gardens and the public to hold wildlife gardening events during the week. A microsite (www.rhs. org.uk/wildaboutgardensweek) has been set

30th August - 5th September 2013

up for groups and individuals to log events. The first 200 registered groups* to add events will receive free bulbs from the RHS. Whether private or public, gardens offer a wealth of habitats for wildlife. For example, a pond is one of the most effective ways to attract garden wildlife, and wildflowers provide essential food for insects such as butterflies and bees.

Throughout ‘Wild About Gardens Week’, talks and events will be held at the four RHS Gardens and TWT visitor centres. There will also be wildflower seed giveaways by TWT and the public will be asked to ‘Do One Thing’ – whether this is to create a pond, build a hedgehog house or simply put out some bird seed. Helen Bostock, RHS Horticultural Advisor, said: “What’s most alarming at the moment is that many of the ‘common’ garden species – hedgehogs, house sparrows, starlings and common frogs, for example – are becoming much less common. Historically these species have done well in our gardens and so their decline is something we really need to sit up and take notice of. This is where gardeners can make a difference and help to halt the declines we’re seeing, by making their gardens more wildlife friendly. This should be a wake-up call to all of us.” Chris Baines, Vice

President of The Wildlife Trusts, said: “The nation’s gardens are hugely important for wildlife and as a habitat network they are second to none. Inner-city balconies and courtyards, the suburbs’ hedgerows and lawns, and the orchards and allotments of market towns and villages: all have the potential to be incredibly rich habitats for wildlife. There are many simple ways in which we can make our gardens naturally richer.

now include lettuces, spinach, land cress, purslane, beetroot, radishes, coriander, spring onions, calabrese, spring greens, turnips for their green tops, Swiss chard, winter spinach and hardy Japanese onions Take cuttings from tender perennials and bedding plants, such as verbena Sow a few pots of hardy annuals to provide early spring blooms Shade delicate plants to avoid sun scorch on hot days Deal with vine weevil by watering pots with a solution of biological control nematodes Harvest cucumbers regularly to promote further flower development Pot up rooted cuttings into individual pots Plant pots of freesias and lachenalia Stop watering begonias and gloxinias so they die down after flowering Start watering dormant cyclamen to bring them back into growth after their summer rest Remove suckers from roses, shrubs and around the base of trees, like cornus and sorbus Trim box topiary and hedging Cut laurel hedges using secateurs so you don’t damage the remaining leaves Hoe and hand weed borders Order sweet pea seeds for autumn sowing in pots Pinch out the tips of wallflowers to promote bushier growth Buy spring-flowering bulbs like tulips, crocuses, narcissus and fritillaries Nest boxes, birdfeeders, log piles, nectar plants, fruiting shrubs, wall climbers and ponds all improve the life chances for many garden creatures; and, as each of us improves our garden habitat for wildlife, the plants and animals that we attract will bring more pleasure in return. It’s a win-win situation.” TWT and RHS will be offering free advice and resources via the website www.wildaboutgardens.org.uk and via the RHS Advisory Service.

KWIK FIX! By Carl from Robot

I OFTEN get told in the salon by clients that they want something quick and easy to style.

That’s because, they say, they don’t have much time to spend on their hair. And some decide to grow their hair just to tie it back, often wasting a good head of hair by pulling it back 24/7 there’s nothing worse. That doesn’t mean we need to crop the hair to give the client something that looks good, yet is easy to do. Cutting the hair to follow the head shape will produce an easy, fuss-free look which just falls back into place. Okay, I’m not saying you’re going to just wash your hair and go out. To me, fuss-free is 5-10 minutes of styling only.

Page 40

You have to put some effort in but, once it’s done, you’re set for the day. No matter how your hair is blown about, it should still fall into place. That’s the idea behind this type of cut. If it’s taking you half-an-hour to get your hair to look good, then it’s not the style for you. These types of cuts usually look better with some sort of colour to show them off. A simple

block colour normally looks best because you want to show off the shape to its full advantage. If you are going for this type of styling, then keeping up to the cut is a must. The shape should still look good weeks after your salon visit. But do return, say every 6-7 weeks, to keep it pristine. There ’s no longer any excuse for a bad hair day, so ask your stylist to suggest a no-fuss cut for you. Remember, it’s not only as you leave the salon that you should look good. You should be able to recreate the look at home. When I’m in the salon, I hate to hear clients telling me they spend hours styling their hair to get it to look good. That’s not the point. Hair is about complementing your image all day, and not just on a night out. Keep it simple and you won’t go far wrong.

The new ovarian screening could be real life-saver A NEW way of screening for ovarian cancer is showing “potential”, according to researchers in the US.

But a huge UK study will give a final verdict on the test when it is completed in 2015. Tumours in the ovaries are hard to detect in the earliest stages, which means it can be too late to treat them effectively by the time they are found. A trial of 4,051 women, reported in the journal Cancer, showed the method could identify those needing treatment. There is a survival rate of up to 90% when ovarian cancer is caught early, compared with less than 30% if it is not discovered until the later stages. Unlike other cancers, the symptoms, such as pelvic and abdominal pain or persistent bloating, are often put down

to other common ailments, and the tumour can be missed. There is no massscreening programme to detect the cancer, either. Scientists already know that levels of a protein in the blood, called CA125, are often higher with ovarian cancer. However, it is too unreliable on its own. It misses some patients and tells others they have the cancer when they are actually healthy. Researchers are now sounding out the idea of using the blood test to sort patients in risk groups based on levels of CA125. Instead of going straight for surgery, low-risk patients are tested again in a year, medium-risk ones after three months and highrisk patients have an ultrasound scan to hunt for tumours. The US study, at the University of Texas, followed post-menopausal

women for 11 years on average. Ten women had surgery based on their ultrasound scan - and all the cancers detected were at an early stage. Researcher Dr Karen Lu told the BBC: “Clinical practice definitely should not change from our study, but it gives us an insight - we didn’t get a lot of false positives.” She said the UK study of 50,000 people would give definitive results, adding: “There are two big questions - do we see cancers at an earlier stage and do we decrease the number of deaths?” Dr Sarah Blagden, from the Ovarian Cancer Action research centre, said: “Relative to the trial underway in the UK , this is a small study. But it does show that effective ovarian screening is possible. “In 2015, the results of the UKCTOCs study will become available, and the results are eagerly anticipated, more so now that this American study has produced such encouraging results.” Annwen Jones, chief executive at Target Ovarian Cancer, said: “The results of this study are, without doubt, very positive, and we should take hope from that. “Early detection of ovarian cancer will be the key to transforming survival rates. “However, this study is very small, and there is no guarantee that the results will be replicated on a larger scale.”

By Val Sainsbury THE number of under-25s being diagnosed with sexually-transmitted diseases has swelled by almost 50% in a decade.

Doctors and specialists are particularly concerned about the rise of gonorrhoea, with rates increasing by 20% in the past 12 months. They believe the trend is down to a new superstrain of the disease, which cannot be treated with antibiotics that easily. A Public Health England report shows there were 448,422 new cases of sexually-transmitted infections (STIs) in 2012, including chlamydia, herpes and genital warts. The total is up 5% on the previous year and 46% higher than 2003, when figures were first collected.

Sex - the 'super' hidden dangers!

Experts say the rise is down to teenagers and adults having unprotected sex in their early 20s. But Labour said the figures show a sharp increase in the past three years, for which they blamed the Government’s sex-education policy. The party accused ministers of teaching youngsters “too little, too late”, and said they were not doing enough to improve testing and treatment clinics. Rates are highest among the under-25s, with 33% of chlamydia cases and more than 50% of gonorrhoea infections occurring in this age group. The Public Health England report states: “The continuing high STI rates in England suggest that too many people are still putting themselves at risk through unsafe sex, especially young adults -

and men who have sex with men.” The organisation urges the under-25s to ensure they use protection with “casual partners”, and have regular checks at sexual-health clinics. Audrey Simpson, of the Family Planning Association, said there was less awareness of the importance of contraception among the

young. She added: “The worry is that condomuse is not being taught in schools. There may be less awareness in people’s conscience.” Gonorrhoea cases rose by 21% last year, from 21,024 to 25,525. The report adds: “High

gonorrhoea transmission rates are concerning as the global threat of antibiotic resistance grows. “Ensuring treatmentresistant strains of gonorrhoea do not persist and spread remains a public health priority.”

Scientists have previously warned of a super-strain of the illness, which could spread rapidly unless better treatments are developed. A Department of Health spokesman said: “The increase in reported STIs over recent years is, in part, down to better testing, especially for chlamydia and gonorrhoea. “And we have also seen improvements in other areas like teenage pregnancy, where rates are at their lowest levels since records began. “Our approach to tackling sexual health is working. Sex and relationship education is already compulsory in maintained secondary schools. “And primary schools are able to decide whether they too want to teach it.”

Cancer’s crucial link with stress THE spread of breast cancer to other parts of the body has been linked to the activation of a stress gene found in immune system cells. Research from The Ohio State University, published in a recent issue of the Journal of Clinical Investigation, discovered that the ATF3 gene could be the crucial connection between stress and cancer, as well as the spread of the disease. It was already known that ATF3 is activated as a response to stressful conditions in cells of all types. But the new study suggests that cancer cells effectively “coax” immune system cells at the site of a tumour to express the gene. Somehow, this causes the immune cells to behave in an erratic

manner, allowing the cancer cells to escape to other parts of the body - although it is still unclear how this occurs. Tsonwin Hai is professor of molecular and cellular biochemistry at The Ohio State Univer-

30th August - 5th September 2013

sity and senior author of the study. He said: “The rest of the cells in the body help cancer cells to move, to set up shop at distant sites. And one of the unifying themes here is stress.”

Chef Jamie has big beef

Tasty Tube for London JAMES WANNERTON has a most extraordinary neurological condition called synaesthesia, which enables him to “taste” words. He has now completed a “flavour map” of London’s Underground, depicting what each station tastes like. The Tube offers a veritable selection of flavours for the 54-yearold systems analyst from Blackpool, from roast lamb and tomato soup to jelly tots and minstrels. Throw in fruit cake and ice cream as well as hairspray and you get some idea of what Mr Wannerton’s palate goes through. He told the Telegraph that his taste-test Tube map was the product of a 49-year quest - as a child he noticed that each station created a distinct taste while he travelled to school. “It is incredibly consistent,” he said. “These tastes and textures never change. All I did was traverse the underground lines. “It was very natural and involuntary - when the taste popped up, I made a note of it.” Mr Wannerton, presi-

Page 42

dent of the UK Synaesthesia Association, describes his experience of the condition on his website. He writes: “I get these tastes whenever I verbalise a written word, or hear a spoken one. Even in my dreams, I get taste after taste after taste, one after another. “It could, if I let it, take over completely, causing a sort of sensory overload or slowdown. A little like I’ve been told a proper drug trip is to experience.” “These taste sensations do not stop at the Tube, either. I live in a house that tastes of mashed potato in a fruit-gum town. “My next door neighbours are a mix of yoghurt, jelly beans and a subtle hint of a waxy substance.” But he also experiences the less palatable side of life, and he admits: “I have a friend whose wife tastes of vomit, but I’ve never told them.” He adds: “If you are called Virginia, Denise, Donna, Helen or Christine, my brain unfortunately places you at a disadvantage. Sorry. I can’t help it.”

JAMIE OLIVER, the TV chef who has made millions from his recipes, has really stuck the knife into British staff.

The colourful chef, never far from controversy, maintains that his restaurants would not survive if he had to rely on a British workforce rather than European immigrants. Jamie said that immigrants were “stronger and tougher” than their British counterparts, who tended to “whinge” about their working hours being too long.

He said mothers telephoned him to say that their sons were “too tired” to turn up for work. His comments came just 24 hours after he sparked anger by saying that families trapped in “modern-day poverty” would rather fork out for giant televisions instead of healthy food. In his latest outburst, the 38-year-old Essex man told Good Housekeeping magazine: “The average working hours in a week was 80 to 100. That was really normal in my 20s. “But the EU regulation now is 48 hours, which is half a week’s

work for me. And they still whinge about it!” Oliver, darling of the housewives, whose many TV programmes have been broadcast throughout the world, used to work a 100-hour week in his 20s. “British kids particularly - I have never seen anything so wet behind the ears,” he said. “I have mummies phoning up for 23-yearolds saying to me, ‘My son is too tired’. On a 48-hour-week! Are you having a laugh?” He told the magazine: “Our European immigrant friends are much stronger, much tougher. If we didn’t have any, all

of my restaurants would close tomorrow. There wouldn’t be any Brits to replace them.” Oliver, whose restaurants include Fifteen, which helps the young unemployed, and more than 30 UK branches of Jamie’s Italian, added: “It’s all very well when people are slagging off immigration, and I’m sure there are problems. “Older people always complain about youth, and I think it’s a good thing because it is always changing. “The young will be better at different things - but long hours in hot kitchens is not one of them!”

By Jav LAND ROVER’S brand-new Range Rover Hybrid the company’s first production car in this mode - is an impressive technical feat.

Clever control systems enable the engine and electric motor to work in almost perfect harmony, delivering a punchy drive on and off road. The small all-electric range and big price tag could possibly hold it back, though, especially when the TDV6 is such a smooth performer. But the extra off-road ability and impressive fuel economy (44.1mpg) are extra strings to the Range Rover’s bow. So Land Rover will market the Hybrid as a flagship model, costing on a par with the £98,430 supercharged V8. The TDV6, on which it is based, starts at £71,310, while the TDV8, whose performance the hybrid matches, is nearly seven grand dearer. Good news for Range Rover aficionados is that it will be available

Making a big Hybrid splash

in showrooms as soon as it has been launched at the Frankfurt Motor Show (10th-22nd Sept). Looks-wise, the interior is as plush as ever, with few changes: a small button on the centre console to activate EV mode, and a new dial on the TFT screen, which shows brake regeneration power and the battery’s reserves. The engine is extremely well insulated, and refined, so it’s hard to tell when the TDV6 fires up. In mixed driving, Land Rover say the engine is off around 25% of the time. The hybrid system is controlled by a patented electronic system called Vehicle Supervisory Control, which works so smoothly that you can hardly tell what combination of sources is powering the car. Thus, it makes the drive similar to the regular V6, but with a bit more punch. The battery discharges quickly, particularly if the climate control is on, and the system uses an electric compressor, so the cabin stays cool when the engine is off. The drawback is that

it uses juice quickly, and you can actually watch the battery indicator tick down like a fuel gauge with a leaky tank. But the battery can be recharged really quickly. And should you want to arrive at your destination in the whispering electric mode, you can switch off the stopstart, or rev the engine while the car is in neu-

tral to charge up the battery. The regeneration is nowhere near as aggressive as in other hybrids, so the brakes are nice and linear. However, the lack of regeneration does add to the feeling that the hybrid system has been designed to boost economy figures and give good initial response.

But, ultimately, it’s not there to interfere too much with the way the Range Rover feels when you drive it. The liquid-cooled lithium-ion battery and its control unit sit under the right-hand front seat, protected by a steel cover which can withstand hard off-road abuse. Land Rover have no

real idea how many models they will shift, but 5-10% of total Range Rover sales in Europe will keep them happy. The price does seem steep, but for those with the cash - and the desire to claim they have the most high-tech Range Rover at their disposal - it’s a well-engineered and well-executed technology showcase.

This Opel concept is all about US! HERE’S Vauxhall’s Opel Monza concept model, which previews the future of the brand’s design.

It has been unveiled ahead of its public debut at the forthcoming Frankfurt Motor Show because the company are so excited about it. The gullwing coupe could also be seen as a rival for the Audi A5two-door as Vauxhall continue their drive towards the top end of the market. The Monza name was previously used in the UK on an Opel-badged coupe, which later became the Vauxhall Royale.

And, just as the original Monza was available with a futuristic digital dash, Vauxhall is pushing the boundaries again with this concept.

30th August - 5th September 2013

It features LED projection technology, giving drivers the use of the entire dash as one large screen, with displays ranging from a simple

speedometer or satnav map to decorative elements and infotainment. The Monza also has a focus on smartphone

connectivity, and Vauxhall offer drivers three modes to choose from: ME, US and ALL. ME prioritises driver information, allowing you to focus solely on the road. US is more for passengers, letting them log into the infotainment system with their phones and display their own images or play their own music. ALL keeps the car connected with the outside world, thus allowing people to see the route you’re taking in case they’re after a lift. This kind of information can also be used to talk to other cars and stationary objects - like traffic lights - to help prevent accidents and ease congestion.

The Opel Monza can be powered by a variety of sources, although the car starring at Frankfurt will have a plug-in, hybrid system like the one featured in the Ampera. Electric motors drive the wheels at all times, but a 1.0-litre turbo engine is used as a rangeextender. This will probably replace the 1.6-litre engine in the current Ampera. However, the concept uses natural gas rather than petrol to further reduce CO2 emissions. Mark Adams, head of design at Opel/Vauxhall, said: “This is the next bold step into the future but, at the same time, we are showing that we’ve established a consistent design.”

Bore draw, and Old Boys next

CD Tenerife 0 Hercules 0 TENERIFE didn’t exactly produce a Herculean (sorry) effort against Hercules on Sunday.

was poor - and while I’m not going to slaughter someone after one match, Nino he ain’t. With Suso, Luismi and Chechu also showing little, it was left to Cristo Martin to create the openings. He grew throughout the match and has the air of a man who is determined to seize his second chance at this level. Deep into stoppagetime, a Tenerife corner was swiftly cleared and the home side were caught at the back. Sardinero slipped goal-side of Bruno and, with the goal at his mercy, his crossfield shot looked destined for the net. But somehow, Aragoneses managed to change the direction of his legs and beat the ball away, much to the delight of the fans and an embarrassed Bruno. A point and a clean sheet is no disaster. But it’s two games without a goal and, in truth, we haven’t even looked close to getting one so far.

Tenerife travel to Mirandes this weekend, and it’s an old-boys’ reunion. Exactly three seasons ago, Gonzalo Arconada (pictured right) was the new Tenerife manager. He had replaced popular Jose Luis Oltra after the heartbreak of relegation from La Liga. The board had decided to gamble and kept the nucleus of the squad together, adding just a couple of Arconada’s recommendations. He had done an excellent job at Numancia, and he recruited former charges Natalio, Julio Alvarez and Gergory Beranger. Director of Football Santiago Llorente had splashed the cash to get them, but from day one something was wrong. The existing players were still stunned at the sacking of Oltra. They were a tight unit who pined for their former General. Senior players Nino, Ricardo and Marc Betran privately wanted out after the Oltra dismissal, while Ayoze Garcia had already jumped back to La Liga. Pre-season was tough. Arconada was a harsh, defensive coach and the players were use to the free-flowing, attacking football under Oltra. The wingers were ordered to tuck in, track back and show caution when attacking. The new boys were seen as being the manager’s favourites, and the dressing room had a distinctive split. The “Numancia” crew sat on one side of the dressing room, warmed up together, ate together. Arconada’s methods were mocked, and the senior players sort solace in the assistant manager and CD Tenerife legend Toño Hernandez, who was kept on against Arconada’s wishes. The first game at Girona was a disaster. Just

14 months previously, it was the scene of Tenerife’s promotion - and on opening day they were swatted aside. The following week, a tepid home defeat by Salamanca was followed by another loss in the Cup at Elche. Four days later they lost at Rayo and when they were booed off after a 2-0 home defeat by Celta Vigo, Arconada’s fate was sealed. The fact that Tenerife took 11 matches to win that season and eventually got relegated wasn’t solely his fault. But this week Arconada spoke of his bitterness, saying: “My time in Tenerife was unhappy. I was with the club only two months and everything was rushed. “We all have to share our responsibility for what happened, but there were four coaches that season when Tenerife went down. So it wasn’t just me. “The intention had been to win promotion. Not fight against relegation. The dressing room wasn’t right, that is true, but it wasn’t the only reason for what happened. “Look I had four matches! That was it. I’m pleased they are back in this league and I hope the fans are happy.” He will have two former CDT players at his disposal on Sunday. Keeper Bernardo is fondly remembered after playing 60 consecutive matches for Tenerife in the mid 2000s, while it’s the first time we have faced former wonderkid Iriome Gonzalez. He was a revelation when he burst into the first team in 2007. He scored two goals against Las Palmas, played for Spain in the Under-20 World Cup and the world was his oyster. But a run of injuries, changes of managers and loss of confidence saw him lose his way. Spells at Huesca and Villarreal B have toughened him up. Now, at 26, he is back in the headlines, and he was excellent against Real Zaragoza last week.

A barnstormer at Bar 180! THE Premier league, as you would expect, contains players at the upper end of the ability range. And sometimes, when those players come up against each other at the top of their game, you get a special match. That’s exactly what happened at Bar 180 last Friday as the hosts’ A team entertained Phoenix Bar. The singles went more or less as expected, and Bar 180 took the

first doubles to take a promising 4-2 lead. The drama then began as Mitch and Bubbles beat Andy and Mick 3-2 in the second doubles with a 14-dart leg thrown in for good measure! What followed just took the breath away. Bubbles, London and Mitch fired in a staggering 19-dart trebles leg to square the match at 4-4. Maximums came from Bubbles, London and

two from Mitch. Brilliant stuff! Elsewhere, Palms took the last rubber to beat a Pub side who might regret having that last shandy! Target Army dropped just the one point at The Playboys, and Target Army did likewise at home to Gaffers, with another maximum from Karl. The Vikings last-leg win earned them a draw at Scruffy Macs. Starman, or starlet? In Division 1 it has to

be young Beck, of Bar 180 B, who checked out on 124 during a 6-2 success at Amistad 1. The other four matches here all went down to trebles-leg deciders. Paddy hit another 180 for Summerlands as they scraped past the Bytes, Trap Door squeaked a win at Chipeque and Rood went back to the top with a 5-3er at Naughty Nautas. Meanwhile, the San Blas derby saw Emerald Lounge get

And Tenerife Sun were given a stern test at Picassos, winning the match only on the trebles leg. Bar 180 D maintained their good form with a 6-2 victory over Sundowners, and Phoenix Flights recorded their second win of the sea-

Finally, La Caña Lancers took the long trek up the road to The Rebels, where they lost the trebles and the match. *A reminder that the highest checkout in each Division is sponsored by Direct Telecom.

Tenerife squad lead the way in World Water Ski bonanza

A wee spot of bother

ENGLAND’S triumphant Ashes team overdid their celebrations last Sunday after clinching a 3-0 win against Australia at The Oval following a contentious draw.

They had already wrapped up the series before the final Test, and were almost certainly denied a fourth win because of bad light, which stopped play. Five hours later, in the dark, England stars Kevin Pietersen, Stuart Broad and Jimmy Anderson were spotted peeing on the Oval pitch during their boozy celebrations. Two Aussie pressmen saw what was going on and duly reported it in their newspapers the following morning. There were no denials and the trio eventually issued an apology.

Murray back on course WIMBLEDON Champion and defending title-holder Andy Murray reached the US Open second round after a late-night session on Wednesday, beating Frenchman Michael Llodra 6-2 6-4 6-3. He now faces a third-round clash against Argentina’s Leonardo Mayer today (Friday). Britain’s top woman, prospect, Laura Robson, also came through her second-round match in straight sets, beating off a determined challenge from another 19-year-old, France’s Caroline Garcia, 6-4, 7-6.

Crabbie’s for high jump

CRABBIE’S alcoholic ginger beer is to sponsor the Grand National until 2016. The event takes place between 3rd-5th April 2014 and will be known as the Crabbie’s Grand National. Owner Halewood International said the agreement would be the cornerstone of a marketing campaign for Crabbie’s throughout the sponsorship.

Bale transfer not a Real deal

GARETH BALE’S proposed £83 million transfer to Real Madrid from Tottenham has yet to be rubber-stamped.

It would make him the most expensive player in football history - above legendary superstars Ronaldo and Messi. But despite a firm want-away plea from the goal-scoring winger, who terrorised Premier League defences last season, his signature has yet to be put on a contract with the Spanish club. The Wales international has indicated that he really does want to go - and who can blame him? - but by last night (Thursday) there still appeared to be stumbling blocks along the way.

SPAIN’S World Water Ski challenge, which begins on Thursday until 15th September in Puerto Colon, Adeje, comprises an all-Tenerife 31-strong squad. More than 180 competitors and over 45 racing boats, from Australia, America, New Zealand, Britain, Belgium, Austria, Netherlands, France, Germany and Spain will compete in this 18th international championship, which is guaranteed to thrill onlookers.

During the Championship, a total of four races will staged, on 7th, 9th, 11th and 14th September. Each race will consist of three rounds, embracing in the following categories: Junior, Open Women F2, and Open Men F2 There was an official press conference in Puerto Colon yesterday (Thursday), during which the Spanish national team were presented as well as the 1 IWWF World Water Ski

Racing Championship officials. In addition, the following authorities were in attendance: *Ramón Miranda, Canarian Director, Government Sport Councillor *Cristina Valido, District Council Vice-President and responsible for the departments of Social Welfare, Education, Youth, Equal Opportunity, Culture and Sports *Jose Miguel Rodríguez Fraga, Adeje’s Mayor

*Adolfo Alonso Ferrera, Adeje Sports Councillor *Juan Antonio González Hernández, Canarian Water Ski President All the Canarian authorities present, especially the Tenerife contingent, agree that the authorities are very honoured and proud to host such a prestigious event. As a spokesman said: “It’s an event which combines tourism together with sport perfectly.

“It is, among others, the hallmark the Canarian Government and local authorities, such as Adeje’s Town Hall, want to transmit.” Adeje Mayor Jose Miguel Rodríguez Fraga, complimented the Canarian Water Ski Federation for all their hard work, and he pledges to be extremely supportive of this event. He hopes that it will not only be a great success, but that all sportsmen will want to come back to Tenerife.

Nothing fishy about Hammers win THE sea of change hasn’t happened in the Direct Telecom Pool League, and champions Tenerife Hammers A again look the side to beat in Division One. Worryingly for the others, they feel stronger this time around, with new boy Paul winning both his matches as they saw off arch-rivals Gaffers A 8-4. All the Hammers boys chipped in - even Jet got a win - as they laid down a marker for the season. Last year they lost this fixture early doors, but they look to be cherry ripe at the dawn of this campaign. They are joined by surprise packets La Caña A, who have had a fine start. They are also 100% and seem to love Palms Bar because they have won both their matches there 7-5. Tenerife Hammers C were their latest prey, and we may know more about them after they host Phoenix Potters on Tuesday. The Potters warmed up with a comfortable

win over Toscales A, while Phoenix Knights’ poor start continued at Exiles A. Talking of strugglers, what has happened to Dreamers A? They were expected to mount a charge this season, but they are still winless. They managed to grab defeat from the jaws of victory against Terrace Suicide Squad, aka Terrace A. The match was frame for frame until Gav beat Adi to make it 5-4. Dreamers were then good favourites but, somehow, managed to lose the last 3 frames with James beating Steve to take a shock three points. There was an amazing match on the Patch as Inn The Pink blew a 5-1 and 6-2 lead to be left with just a draw against Treehouse A. Jay was again the visitors’ star, but hattip to Mark for his cool finish in the final, deciding frame. Peacocks A rode their luck to gain revenge for last year’s TPT Plate final defeat as they chinned Palms A. Five teams still have

100% records in Division Two, with James Place top on alphabetical order from Palms B. James Bar had to use all their squad, but were still too strong for Shorty, while Palms B were far too good for Dreamers B (11-1). Bluebell B sneaked past Bar La Caña B to keep up their perfect start, while Inn The Pink B had it a little easier at Toscales B. They

came home 9-3, despite Tel getting blown away by Laura. Exiles B got back on track at Picasso’s A and well done to Cosy Corner A, who have won their first-ever match. They were, naturally, delighted with the 8-4 success at Treehouse B. And there was a great match in the Las Americas derby as Bar 13 fought back from 3-0 down to go 6-3 up -
