HEALTHCARE BOOSTER will SUIT the EXPATS THE Spanish Government pledged a healthcare reform last year among its many cuts.

And it has now revealed guidelines for the Convenio Especial, or Special Scheme. The new public health insurance scheme has been announced through the Partner’s Newsletter, a collaboration by the British Embassy, Department of Health, Age Concern Espana, Department of Work and Pensions and the British Legion. Basically, it is a scheme for those who fall through the healthcare gaps. In other words, the Convenio Especial is in place for people who, for whatever reason, do not have access to stateprovided healthcare. It will prove to be a real eye-opener for British expats, say, who have taken out private medical insurance. That’s because the scheme will cost just 60 euros per month for the under-65s, increasing to 157 euros for those older, although the sums do not cover prescription costs. The new scheme will be implemented across the whole of Spain, but it will be managed by individual, autonomous communities,

like us here in Tenerife. Those who subscribe will receive healthcare anywhere in Spain and regardless of any pre-existing condition. And that is where it differs greatly from private healthcare. The Government plan does not apply to those

who are state pensioners within the system, or those registered as residents in Spain before 24th April 2012 as they should already be in the state’s healthcare system. The new cover is for those outside of the system, like people

moving to Spain now, who have no rights to immediate healthcare, or those coming back. This may be because they have been working, abroad and have no immediate right to the healthcare benefits set out in Spanish So-

cial Security system’s legislation. It would also apply to family members of Spanish emigrants who, upon the death of the emigrants responsible for them, had no right to healthcare benefits by other means. Further information

will soon be available from health centres The necessary form required to apply for the Convenio Especial is the TA-0040, which can be submitted at any time after the date of return, or temporary move to Spain, by anyone.

New flight to Oslo The president of the Cabildo, Carlos Alonso, has announced the commitment of SAS Scandinavian to maintain a direct flight to Oslo from Tenerife South Airport.

It will begin on 21st December, and the flight will be on a weekly basis, every Saturday. This development was announced at the Global Forum Route Development (Routes)

held in the U.S. The Cabildo President carried out over a dozen meetings with various companies to negotiate new routes for next year, highlighting the good prospects for the coming winter. Regarding the decision of SAS, Carlos Alonso highlighted the interest of the airline that "already in the summer operated this route for six weeks and has now decided to resume the flight in winter". "Throughout this year we have negotiated with the company to consoli-

11th October - 17th October 2013

date its commitment to Tenerife." He added: "It will help to consolidate in a market that is the fourth source of tourists to the island, behind British, Spanish and German." Last year 478,104 Nordic tourists chose Tenerife for their holidays, representing an increase of 23.6% compared with the year before. Until August 2013, the island received 280,727 visitors from that market, an increase of 3% compared with the same period in 2012.

Pet lovers will rejoice at the news that Rover, Rex, Fido et al can enjoy his or her own Christmas dinner this festive season, with a limited-edition tin of festive dog food arriving at Waitrose this week. Lily’s Kitchen Christmas Dinner for Dogs includes fresh, festive turkey and goose, potatoes, carrots, green beans and cranberry. Verity Streeter, Waitrose Pet Care Buyer, said: “As a nation of dog-lovers, we felt it was time to have a dedicated meal for our four-legged friends. “For too long, our dogs have watched, salivating, as we have sat down to Christmas dinner with all the trimmings. But this year, with our dedicated doggie Christmas dinner, we can all tuck in, safe in the knowledge that man’s best friend is also catered for.” And no need to pass the biscuit tin this year, as our furry friends will also have deliciously-dedicated treats, bursting with Christmassy ingredients which include cranberries and cinnamon to tickle their taste-buds.

So if you fancy shelling out £2.49 for a 400g tin of Christmas Dinner for Dogs - a grain-free recipe with fresh turkey and goose, including organic potatoes, organic carrots, organic green beans, organic apple and cranberry - then the delight can be yours, and your dog’s as well!

These little heartshaped treats also come with a “To and From” gift tag, to provide the purrrrfect present for under the Christmas tree.

Huge let-off for drug-smugglers

RECORDS relating to nearly 650,500 alerts into possible drug and tobacco smuggling into the UK were wiped out over a 10-month period last year. An inspection into border controls discovered that they hadn’t even been read before being erased in a government system. John Vine, Chief Inspector of Borders and Immigration, uncovered the glaring error when he was examining the multimillion-pound e-Borders programme. The border check system was set up by the Home Office 10 years ago to collect Advanced Passenger Information (API), which is then checked against terror and criminal watch lists. The e-Borders programme is viewed by the Government as the front line in the battle to stop criminals and terrorists from entering or leaving the UK. But Mr Vine found that records relating to drug and tobacco smuggling were deleted because of “poor data quality and

the prioritisation of immigration over customs work”. He said: “These deletions had a significant impact on the ability of staff at the border to seize prohibited and restricted goods, and deal with those responsible.” His report said that the deletions amounted to 75% of all the Customs work completed at the National Border Targeting Centre (NBTC), which is the hi-tech hub where checks on passengers entering and leaving Britain are carried out. The inspector also found that the e-Borders programme had not delivered planned increases in passenger data collection, with only 65% of all passenger movements into and out of the UK covered, because of complications surrounding European law. Mr Vine added: “Despite being in development for over a decade, and costing over halfa-billion pounds, the eBorders programme has yet to deliver many of the anticipated benefits

originally set out in 2007. “I was surprised that the use of e-Borders information to ‘export the border’ by preventing the arrival of a passenger because he or she had either been deported or excluded from the UK previously, was not happening. “The Home Office should now define clearly what the aims of the eBorders programme are, ahead of the new procurement exercise, and be transparent about what e-borders will deliver - and by when.” Immigration Minister Mark Harper said Mr Vine’s findings would be taken into account, but he stressed that improvements had been made. “Border Force, which the Government split from the UK Border Agency in 2011, is making significant improvements in its performance,” he said. “The 2011 Vine Report revealed that border security checks had been waived without ministerial authorisation consistently since 2007. “To-

day, there is a clear operating mandate, and all checks are carried out. A year ago, the Border Force had trouble with excessive queues at airports. “Today, 99% of travellers are cleared within the service standards we’ve agreed. The security of the border is now at the heart of everything Border Force does.” Mr Harper added: “We have the best coverage of any country in Europe, but we are working to improve our coverage further.” Shadow Home Secretary Yvette Cooper insisted that border control was in “chaos”. She added: “The Home Secretary must urgently explain why hundreds of thousands of possible drug-smuggling records were deleted in 2012 without having ever been read. “She needs to stop drug-smuggling information being deleted and get the proper border controls in place, rather than relying on divisive gimmicks like ad vans instead.”

Every week we propose a photographic theme or challenge, and entrants would submit their photos. The challenge is only valid for 7 days. There is no official judging, and no prizes, but participants get the opportunity to comment on other people’s work. The idea is to encourage people to use their cameras more frequently, and more creatively! The Challenges are not designed to make you spend all your money on cameras or lighting equipment – they are designed to make you think about what you are pointing your camera at. We welcome entries from anyone – from those using the cameras in their phones, to those using high-end SLRs.

How do I enter? Take your photo and post it on the Canarian Weekly Photo Challenge facebook page. You can post more than one but they all must relate to the weeks theme. You can get easy reminders when new Challenges come out by joining our Facebook group.

How expats can avoid the pitfalls of living over here TAKING a few simple steps can help British expats prepare for the difficulties of living in Tenerife - or avoid them altogether.

That was the view of British Ambassador Giles Paxman in a TV interview with expat TV station Viva TV, which can also be seen on YouTube. Checking your passport expiry date, telling visitors from the UK what to get before they travel, and visiting your local town hall to find out about local services. These are all measures to help Britons on the Island, or in mainland Spain, avoid running into time-consuming problems later, says Mr Paxman in an interview with expat tel-

evision station Viva TV, which can also be seen on YouTube. “If you’re living here, you can prepare for the sort of difficulties you might face. So that if these difficulties do occur, they simply remain difficulties and don’t become dramas. “First of all, check the validity of your pass-

port. It’s very easy to make a note in your diary when your passport needs renewing. “If you don’t and you’ve suddenly got to travel overseas, it’s going to be very disruptive and very expensive to get an emergency passport. “Tell people who are coming to visit you what they need to do before

they travel. Tell them to get their European Health Insurance Card, and tell them to get comprehensive travel insurance. “If they don’t and something happens to them, then the holiday will turn into a nightmare.” Mr Paxman, who is leaving Spain later this month, adds that it is important for expats to try to integrate into their local communities. “A lot of British people who live here don’t speak Spanish and I understand that,” he says. “But more and more local authorities do have people who speak English. “Go along to your local town hall and find out what sort of services they’re offering. “You’ll probably find there’s more than you might imagine including the local, emergen-

cy and health services, which may be able to help if you face a problem. “Those are the people that Britons should be turning to if they face difficulties, rather than coming to the Consulates.” The British consular network in Spain is the busiest in the world, handling more than 6,000 cases last year. “Because we have such a high volume, of cases we have to be fairly selective about the things that we will do and the things that we won’t,” says Mr Paxman. “We have to focus on the most serious and demanding cases. “Some of these cases are highly distressing: young people who have come out to Spain and because they haven’t taken the right precautions or because of a moment’s stupidity - often alcohol- fuelled - they

can ruin their lives.” Finally, Mr Paxman encourages all expats to visit the British Government website at www. gov.uk. “You can find out so much about what the Government does and what services are offered in every area, from tax to health and social services,” he advises. “You may find the answer to a lot of questions you didn’t even know you had.” The interview with Mr Paxman was filmed by Alicante-based Viva TV and reflects on the Ambassador’s four years in Spain. It can be seen on YouTube at https:// w w w. y o u t u b e . c o m / watch?v=Q8WdlIZ20sc Mr Paxman will be replaced as Ambassador by Simon Manley, a senior diplomat who previously headed the Foreign Office’s Europe Directorate.

Los Abrigos Auction Room bids a fond farewell to Ray THE auction room in Los Abrigos has now been running for nine months, and it’s going from strength to strength.

It is proving to be a popular place for people to get a bargain while enjoying a fun Saturday morning out. Unfortunately Ray, the resident auctioneer, has decided to leave these shores for pastures new, and his last auction takes place tomorrow morning (Saturday). Jane and Mark will be sad to see him go as the three have worked very well together over the past months. They both thank Ray for all his hard work and dedication in setting up the auction and wish him and his wife, Rachel, lots of luck and happiness for the future. Mark said: “It’s been a great pleasure working

alongside Ray for the past nine months, and we have had some great laughs. “I don’t think we could have progressed to where we are without his vast experience he’s been a Godsend.” Mark will be stepping into the auctioneer’s role for the time being, and hopes he can continue in the same manner as Ray. But he knows it will be a tough act to follow! For his part, Ray would like to thank all the friends and wellwishers he has met

11th October - 17th October 2013

through the auctions, and he has thoroughly enjoyed working with Jane and Mark. “I really hope they continue to thrive,” he adds. Los Abrigos Auction Room is located in the first building on the right when entering Los Abrigos, coming down the hill from Las Chafiras, with plenty of parking to the rear. Auctions are held on alternative Saturdays at 10.30am, with viewing on the Friday before the auction from 9am-5pm. Tel: 922 749 664 or 636 630 217.

News In Brief Bluetrail test for runners

MORE than 1,100 runners from 20 countries have registered for Tenerife Bluetrail mountain race next Saturday (19th Oct). There are 1,012 men and 112 women spread between the four categories. Some 90% of those registered are Spanish, followed by Germans, Italian, French, Belgians, British, Czechs, Argentines, Ecuadorians, and many other nationalities.

Woman’s body found at sea

THE body of a 53-year-old British woman, identified only as MW, was found floating at sea last Sunday, just off the coast of Palm Mar. She was spotted by the occupants of a leisure craft at Punta Rasca and a friend identified her as a Los Cristianos resident. But her full name is being with-held by the Guardia Civil. An autopsy is being carried out to ascertain the cause of death.

Minimum wage frozen

THE minimum wage is likely to be frozen in 2014, although the Spanish Government claims it will not make a final decision until the end of this year. Spain’s minimum salary for a full-time, 40hour week is currently 645.31 euros a month gross, or a daily rate of 21.51 euros. This means that the annual total for a fulltime job may never fall below 9,034.20 euros before tax. It went up by 0.6% t this year, but was also frozen in 2012.

Carnival fireworks doused

THE Tenerife Carnival will not be allowed fireworks next year following a ban agreed on Wednesday by Santa Cruz Council because of a serious incident earlier this year when a beauty queen contestant was scarred for life when her dress caught fire. The new rules are aimed to increase security measures to avoid the risk of damage or personal injuries during events and festivals.

Spain’s poverty-stricken kids

CHILD poverty stands at 30% in Spain, and poor feeding by parents in early life through lack of funds could leave them with permanent problems. Some adults and children are being forced to live on cheap and unhealthy food, rather than enjoying a balanced diet, because of the austere measures endured by the country’s poor. Some youngsters are also traumatised when their families are evicted because their homes are repossessed. And they suffer mental and physical problems from being homeless, or living in illegal squats. These are the findings of the Council of Europe - a human rights watchdog based in Strasbourg - which visited Sevilla and Madrid recently.

It’s just got much worse for villains CRIMINALS who believe they can evade arrest by hiding in Spain will soon feel the force of Britain’s new crime fighting agency.

The National Crime Agency (NCA) will use more than 4,000 specialist crime-fighters to tackle some of the world’s toughest, most organised criminals. The new agency, which began life on Monday, will strengthen relations between law enforcement in the UK and Spain. It will build on its work with the collaboration of various agencies, including the Spanish National Police, Guardia Civil and Spanish Customs. Together, they will tackle economic crime, criminal finances and profits, organised immigration crime and emerging threats such as e-crime. Of particular interest to both countries will be the cocaine and cannabis entering the UK via Spain from Latin America and North and

West Africa. The NCA will also focus on the activities of British organised criminals based in Spain. In addition, it will continue to work closely with Spanish partners under Operation Captura, which has been responsible for the arrest of 53 of Britain’s mostwanted criminals. The operation will continue to be a threat to British fugitives living in Spain. Criminals will be targeted across the globe as the NCA tackles international threats before they even reach the UK border. Led by 120 liaison officers in 40 global locations, the NCA’s reach will

stretch across 150 countries. The organisation will work with partners in Spain to tackle organised crime groups in-country, share intelligence on joint threats and targets, and intercept people, property and money moving to and from the UK. David Armond, the NCA’s Director of Border Policing Command, said: “Tackling serious and organised crime goes way beyond the shores of the United Kingdom. “Some of the biggest threats to the national security of countries around the globe come from individuals and crime groups who, globally, cost us billions of

pounds every year and ruin lives and communities. “These people must be stopped, and the NCA will lead the UK’s law enforcement role at international level.” He added: “The NCA will be a powerful crimefighting agency, with more than 4,000 officers working with partners at home and abroad to cut serious and organised crime.” The new agency will have a much wider remit than its predecessors, with an additional focus on cyber crime, fraud and economic crime, alongside the more familiar types of serious and organised criminal activity such as drugs, sexual exploitation of children, human trafficking and firearms. The NCA is leading the UK’s fight to cut serious and organised crime by building on the cuttingedge technologies and expertise of officers from its key predecessor organisations. These include the Serious and Organised Crime Agency (SOCA) and the Child Exploitation and Online Protection (CEOP) centre.

Debt-ridden AENA enjoys a life of luxury in hire cars AENA, the governing body of Spain’s Stateowned airport, has accrued debts of over 12.5 billion euros. Yet it spends around 863,000 euros a year on chauffeur-driven and company cars for its top managers. The figure was revealed in Parliament last week by CiU MP Pere Macías. He told ministers that despite a 10% drop in staff through redundancies last year, the 83 official cars cost some 10,000-15,000 euros each to rent and to keep on the road. Macias added: “AENA has escaped public control. Its board of directors is acting as though it were a privately-run

company, with all the privileges and lack of accountability that goes with it.” The company cars - a perk which forms part of the board’s “salary in kind” - cost 7,200 euros a year in rental, insurance, repairs and servicing, and 3,200 euros in petrol. They are used by the Chairman, who is also Managing Director, plus the managers of each of the 48 airports in Spain, airport group managers, regional managers and other key corporate chiefs. Three of the 83 vehicles belong to AENA and the rest are leased on a long-term contract. AENA also spends 65,538 a year on

“safety drivers”. In April 2012, the board cancelled a contract for the long-term lease of an Audi Q3, with leather upholstery and a silk roof, following complaints from the opposition. It had been used by the woman in charge of the finance department. Macías asked 13 questions in Parliament about AENA and received “evasive” answers to a few of them and no response to most of the others. He asked about the management team’s salaries and types of job contract, and was merely told how much they had saved in wages.

In total, AENA has 83 top managers and directors, which is nine fewer than last year. Ministerial Orders in March and April 2012 placed a cap of 105,000 euros a year for a public sector worker’s gross salary, and it eliminated expenses for attending board meetings. AENA says its 83 bosses earn between 22-72% less than this. In response to Macías’ question about whether AENA will attempt to cut the cost of company cars, the firm said these were part of its management team members’ salaries, for which they were taxed and made Social Security payments.

What's On

Even computers can’t crack Arve’s age gap! ARVE MALMBORG will never forget his first visit to the Canary Islands. And his latest trip proved memorable before it had even taken off.

Now, though, despite his initial worry about being unable to book with popular tour company Thomas Cook. he is back home in Sweden after spending a leisurely week at La Compostela Beach Club hotel, Las Americas. Mind you, it was his age that caused all the problems because Arve is 100 years old - and the company’s computers are programmed to go as far as 99 only! “He is the most remarkable man, and he must be our oldest holiday-maker yet,” said Max-Kristian Heiredal, Destination Manager of the holiday firm’s Northern Europe (Sweden) branch. “His name kept coming up as being ‘00’ years old, and it took us a while to realise just how old he was. It certainly confused our computer, but we eventually got round the problem by keying in 99 years.” So thrilled were Thomas Cook officials with the company’s latest, historical milestone that they laid on a large

bouquet to greet his arrival, and Arve was then treated to a slap-up meal. The remarkable Swede, who was accompanied by a 54-year-old helper, also enjoyed a trip up Mount Teide and lapped up our warm sunshine. But Arve is no ordinary centurion because he remains sharp-witted, with a glint of mischief in his eyes. He certainly had objection to posing with Martine Hjorungdal, the company’s Swedish Hospitality and Conference Host who helped with the translation. And, believe it or not, he delights in puffing away on a cigarette. “I smoke three a day, sometimes five,” he said, “It’s the secret of long life as far as I am concerned.” But there’s no booze on the menu for this feisty old-timer, who still drives his car back in hometown Malmo.

“I used to drink anything and everything when I was much younger,” he admitted. “But once I reached my thirties, I stopped because I just didn’t like the taste any more.” However, he has always had a thirst for adventure, and he flew untroubled to Tenerife in 1977. But that first excursion to the Canaries Gran Canaria, in fact took place way back in 1947, and the flight was a nightmare from start to finish. It was advertised in Sweden, and Arve fancied it because it was so cheap – and certainly something different. He’d worked hard all his life, mainly as an engineer, and had never flown. It transpìred that the plane was a reconditioned aircraft from World War II, and the man who restored it was keen to recover some of his outlay, at least. Arve boarded the

plane, which soon began leaking oil as it set off for Brussels, where it picked up some extra passengers. From there it went on to Madrid for refuelling (and more passengers) before finally touching down at Gran Canaria with a full complement of 28 travellers on board. “It was my first time in the air and it was frightening,” he said. But he soon developed a thirst for travel and eventually, over the years, explored just about every part of the globe. His next trip to the Canaries came 30 years later, when he visited Tenerife for the first time. That holiday in the North passed without incident, but even in those days, our Island had made an impression on him. So much so that he opted to return this year in celebration of his 100th birthday. “It was on 4th July, American Independence Day,” he said proudly. “And you never know, I might just visit you again next year!”

Russian Consul in Tenerife? Cabildo Vice President, Aurelio Abreu and Minister for Foreign Affairs, Delia Herrera met with the Russian ambassador to Spain, Yuri Corchagin, who has shown interest in promoting an honorary consulate in Tenerife.

The consulate would focus on the 2,200 Russians living in Tenerife. The Ambassador stressed the importance

Page 10

of Russian tourism and the opportunities that are presented with a high growth potential here on the island. “Russians see Tenerife as an exotic and authentic destination with

values beyond the sun and the beach, such as our food and wine.” In this regard, the ambassador also highlighted the friendly nature of the people of Tenerife as another tourist attrac-

tion. Meanwhile Delia Herrera said that last year Russian tourist arrivals reached 140,000, an increase of 25.5 percent over the previous year. From January to August 2013, the increase was 29.2 percent as against the same period last year. Thus, the total of that nationality of travellers arrived in the first eight months is just over 119,000. Significant growth of Russian tourists to the island has been enhanced with the flexibility found in obtaining travel visas, whose validity has been extended to two years.

Rip-off surcharge saints and sinners Six months after a ban on excessive card payment charges came into force Which? reveal that while some companies have lowered their fees, some are still hitting consumers hard. Following their successful campaign to get the Government to ban rip-off card payment surcharges, they have been monitoring how well the new rules are working. They asked consumers to tell them if they felt they had been hit with a rip-off surcharge since the ban came in to effect in April. More than seven hundred people have got in touch through their website and they’ve found that some companies are still charging excessive fees, with the worst offenders in the travel and holiday sector. Of these they’ve identified several companies that they believe could be breaking the new rules. eDreams was the worst offender; they found examples of surcharges of more than 18% for customers paying by credit and even debit cards.

Page 12

The ban makes it illegal for companies to charge more than what it costs them to process the payment. Which? believes that this should be no more than 2% for credit cards and a matter of pence for debit cards. Following complaints from consumers they also contacted other travel companies who have all subsequently agreed to reduce their credit card fees to 2.0%. easyCar have gone even further and have now abolished all their fees for credit and debit ards. Which? executive director Richard Lloyd said: “It’s disappointing that six months after the Government banned rip-off surcharges, consumers are still being hit with high fees simply for paying with a card. “While some companies have reduced their surcharges, there should be a crackdown on rogue companies who continue to flout the ban. We’ll be passing on our findings to Trading Standards and asking them to enforce the rules.”

Energy increase sparks a big fury THE SSE company is the first of the UK’s socalled “big six” energy firms to increase raising prices ahead of winter. Its decision has sparked a bitter backlash among consumer groups and politicians. The company’s household gas and electricity tariffs will rise by an average of 8.2% from 15th November, which will affect 4.4 million electricity consumers and 2.9 million gas customers. Several competitors are understood to be announcing their own increases. The moves come amid a furious debate on potential reforms to the market, centring on environmental and other charges imposed on customer bills by successive governments. SSE, which trades as Southern Electric, Swalec and Scottish Hydro, blamed the increases on rising costs outside its

control. Officials said the firm had absorbed these costs for months at its retail division. SSS also said the move would equate to a typical dual-fuel customer paying £2 a week more. But it pledged not to increase bills again until next August, having last imposed a 9% rise in October 2012. There is a north-south divide to the increased charges, with customers in the South East facing hikes as high as 9.7%, while many in the North and southern Scotland face a 7% rise. Will Morris, group managing director of SSE’s

retail business, said: “We're sorry we have to do this. “We’ve done as much as we can to keep prices down, but the reality is that buying wholesale energy in global markets, delivering it to customers' homes, and Government-imposed levies collected through bills - endorsed by all the major parties - all cost more than they did last year.” Mr added: “Some 85% of a typical energy bill is made up of costs outside our direct control, and these costs have increased. “So far this year, we have made a loss from supplying energy as a result of the higher costs we have been facing and continue to face. “We understand and regret that this will add to the pressures on household budgets, but there’s a lot we can do to help. “Rising unit prices do not have to mean rising

bills, and there remains huge potential for customers to save money by improving further their energy efficiency.” The increases to household bills were announced at a politicallysensitive time, given the debate prompted by Labour leader Ed Miliband’s pledge to freeze tariffs for 20 months, should his party win the next election. After the SSS announcement, he took to Twitter to declare that the rise demonstrated “the need to freeze bills”. But Downing Street described the policy as a “con”. SSE insists its home supply business is currently run at a loss, despite rising operating profits on the back of the cold end to last winter. Its accounts also showed that investment fell by 13%, year-onyear in the 12 months to March.

Gatwick announces retail line-up London Gatwick has announced that Zara, Ted Baker and Snow+Rock will open in South Terminal’s newly-developed retail environment in the departure lounge in early December.

The new retail area is the final phase of an extensive £21m transformation of airside shopping in South Terminal, which has already seen 11 new or refreshed premium stores open since mid-July. New stores included airport firsts for Ernest Jones and Aspinal of London, followed by the launch of a brand new 6,000sq ft Harrods fashion and accessories department store in August. The transformation of South Terminal follows extensive passenger research and feedback. Every year, Gatwick surveys passengers spe-

cifically on catering and retail at the airport with results clearly showing that travellers want to see a much more diverse spread of shops and restaurants. A key piece of feedback was that passengers wanted a good mix of luxury and high street or well-known international brands, as well as more choice in the premium leisure sector. In December, Zara - one of the world’s

11th October - 17th October 2013

largest fashion brands - will open a 4,500 sq ft outlet, its largest UK airport store to date. Ted Baker will open a 1,000 sq ft store, following the success of the brand’s North Terminal fashion store and bespoke Gatwick accessories outlet – the only one of its kind in the world. Opening its first airport store, Snow+Rock will provide a unique premium leisure offer-

ing to Gatwick passengers. Focusing on footwear, accessories and clothing, the 1,000sq ft store will appeal to passengers travelling during the ski season and more broadly on outdoor-focused holidays. Spencer Sheen, Head of Retail at London Gatwick, said: “Gatwick wants to be London’s airport of choice in every area. For retail, we aim to deliver a mix of

stores that are fashionable, relevant and will enhance the experience of travelling through the airport. Opening stores such as Zara, Ted Baker and Snow+Rock is based on the customer research that we conduct and is another exciting step in our extensive redevelopment of the South Terminal.” Craig Smith, Brand Communication Director, Ted Baker com-

mented: “Quality airport shopping has now become such an integral part of the overall travel experience. Our move to open at Gatwick South builds on the success of our expanding portfolio of airport stores where we are already seeing great success and this new location will only strengthen that.” Kevin Young, Group Marketing Director, Snow+Rock commented: “We are very excited to be opening our first airport retail location in this brand-new development at Gatwick's South Terminal. This is a key travel hub for UK skiers and many other travellers and will drive both sales and brand awareness as millions of people pass our shopfront each year. "We will be offering pick-up items and more indulgent purchases at 'tax-free' prices with branded areas showcasing ranges from Salomon and Icebreaker plus selected highlights from our winter sports and outdoor ranges.”

Waitrose is launching a major new initiative to help support elderly, homeless and vulnerable people this Christmas.

The retailer will help provide Christmas lunch events across the country for people who would otherwise be on their own on Christmas day. With more than three quarters of a million Brits over 65 saying they always or often feel lonely the support is aimed at cutting these numbers at what

for many others is the most sociable time of the year. The drive will see: Every Waitrose shop supporting community Christmas lunch events – offering food, money and other resources. Hundreds of Waitrose volunteering hours being offered for Waitrose Partners to help plan events (while being fully paid by Waitrose). Waitrose asking its customers through customer publications to think of people in their community who might be lonely this Christmas and make small actions that might make a big difference.

Each of the retailer’s nearly 300 shops has an allocation of money and volunteering time to put towards community Christmas dinner events. Waitrose is asking groups to apply for this support from their local branch if they are already organising – or thinking of organising such a lunch. Says Waitrose Community Manager Tina Varns: “As a food business we’re acutely aware of how important Christmas is to so many people. But for many it can be the most lonely time of the year.

“Through our Community Matters initiative (green tokens) our shops have been able to support such incredible work going on in communities across the country over the last five years - and we’ve learned first-hand how vital this kind of support is at providing lifelines to vulnerable people. This new Isolation Campaign will complement the great work our shops are already doing in their local communities - and we’re excited about the difference it will make to so many people.”

Guernsey after Spanish nurses GUERNSEY health officials are keen to attract Spanish nurses in a new recruitment drive. There is a shortage of specialist nurses on the island, and they are after orthopaedic and critical-care nurses to work in the Princess Elizabeth Hospital.

Interviews will be held in Madrid next month, and applicants must hold an NMC registration, have six months experience in orthopaedic, surgical or critical-care nursing, and speak fluent English. The move follows the closure of a surgical ward in the

hospital last December. Successful candidates will receive a 3,500-euro bonus after two years, and a further retention payment of 1,200 euros thereafter. They will also have the opportunity to study for a degree on Guernsey. It is also hoped that the recruitment drive

will boost the morale of health workers in the hospital, which has suffered fierce spending cuts in the past 12 months. Many nurses have been taken out of their comfort zones, working on unfamiliar wards, and subject to longer working hours.

Tom Hanks hit by diabetes LEADING Hollywood film star Tom Hanks, who has been battling high blood sugar for years, has been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes.

but Hollywood’s Forrest Gump actor, looking fit and healthy, s told Letterman that weight loss at this stage probably would not help. “My doctor said,

‘If you can weigh as much as you weighed in high school, you will essentially be completely healthy and will not have Type 2 diabetes’. “And I said: “Well,

that turns sugar into energy, or by resisting insulin. About 2.9 million people in the UK are diagnosed with diabetes, according to the NHS, while some

850,000 more have the condition without realising. America’s Food and Drug Administration says about 24 million people have Type 2 diabetes there.

Police taser for airline drunkard

It is the most common form of the metabolic disease, and he opened up to late-night talkshow host David Letterman on Monday. The 57-year-old American told him: “I went to the doctor, and he said, ‘You know those high blood-sugar numbers you’ve been dealing with since you were 36? Well, you’ve graduated! You’ve got type 2 diabetes, young man.’” The Oscar-winning actor, on the show to promote his forthcoming film Captain Phillips, joked: “It’s controllable, but something’s going to kill us all, Dave.” Losing weight is said to help control the disease,

A BEEFY, drunken airline passenger, who stripped naked on the tarmac and challenged the flight captain to a fight, was later tasered by police to subdue him. The tattooed 52-yearold was caught on video stripping to his black underpants at Manchester Airport, shouting and remonstrating after getting off the easyJet flight from Malta. He then removed the underpants and was slapped forcefully across the face by his female companion before getting dressed. The unidentified man, who had a Manchester

accent, also urinated on the side of the Terminal One building at Manchester Airport. He was tasered and arrested by police. The trouble began in mid-flight when the man became abusive and started swearing at fellow passengers. The captain left the cockpit controls to speak to him. A Greater Manchester Police spokesman said: “A 52-year-old man was stunned using an electronic stun gun and arrested on suspicion of being drunk and disorderly in a public place. He was issued with a fixed penalty notice.”

Dog of the week Live Arico News M armaduke is aged about six. He’s a big boy looks to have a bit and of Great Dane in there somewhere.

He came to us in bad shape, extremely skinny and under-nourished, infested with fleas and ticks - and his poor ears raw from constant insect bites. However, by the time you read this, he will have been cleaned up, vaccinated, chipped, sterilised, wormed and de-flead. Happily, he does not have the dreaded heartworm, so that’s something. Despite the years of neglect he has suffered, he is a friendly boy, big and strong. He would be ideal on a finca, where he could run and play. Can you give him a home, and the care he deserves? If so, call Sue on 629 388102 for more details. Katie’s 2nd BBQ party We were back at Horse Riding Adventures, Aldea Blanca, on Sunday for Katie’s second BBQ.

We were happy to host the BBQ as Sally is one of Katie’s benefactors and a long-term Live Arico supporter. We raised 285 euros, just by having a great day out. Many thanks to Jim and Sara Chew for inviting us, and to Sally’s Bob for manning the bar and making gallons of delicious mojito. Also to Mig, for again being invaluable on the BBQ and, lastly, to everyone for coming along and enjoying the day.

Both shops open from 10am-4pm, Monday to Friday, and until 2pm on Saturdays. Kel even opens the Los Cristianos shop on Sundays.

George Horsfall - 1922-2013 GEORGE and his wife, Alma, moved to Tenerife eight years ago to be close to their only daughter, Beverley, and son-in-law Dennis.

The couple were wellknown characters in Los Cristianos and, in particular, around the Apolo Centre. Alma died five years ago, shortly before they would have celebrated 60 years of marriage. Family meant so much to George, who will be greatly missed

Page 18

by his family here and by his grandchildren, Hazel and Jonathan. He had recently discovered Skype and, though the grandchildren were far away, he had been talking to the younger members of the family through the internet. Dennis recalls: “His first sight of Beverley on the wide-screen television still causes great amusement. It took a while for him to understand what was going on!” Though he missed Alma greatly, nothing stopped him from getting around on his own, more often than

not stopping to talk with friends and even with strangers on his regular walks between Castle Harbour and the Apolo Centre. There must be hundreds of people who now know all about his early days, driving trams and buses in his hometown Leeds, and how he had known Alma from chapel when he was 13. He was a regular at the Wednesday Club until Alzheimer’s started to take a toll on his memory. In recent months he had spent more time in a day centre, but he was also cared for at home by two good

friends, John and Frank, as well as by his family. George was a regular member of the congregation at the South Tenerife Christian Fellowship in the Apolo Centre and, for some years, had stood at the top of the stairs as people arrived for the service, shaking hands and giving them a smiling welcome. A memorial service will be held at the Fellowship at 12 noon next Saturday (19th October) to celebrate George’s life. It is an open service, and all who knew him are welcome.

Tigers on the prowl again!

TENERIFE TIGERS, the talented cheerleaders’ troupe from Calleo Salvaje, have had the most fantastic year.

Back in May, they collected an impressive seven-trophy collection from a major competition in Wales. And this weekend, it could get even better. The troupe, who have

a strong international flavour through their parents, have been invited to a hugelyimportant competition in Madrid tomorrow (Saturday) and Sunday. They were encouraged to travel to the Spanish capital by the organisers, who were impressed with their stirring deeds, and the Tigers will be representing Adeje - and the Canary Islands -at the first Spanish Cheer-

leading and Dance competition. Naturally, the upbeat troupe hope to return to Adeje with another cabinet-load of trophies again after competing against 22 teams from around Spain. The Madrid competition takes place at the Palacio de Cristal, Parque de Retiro, a famous landmark in the Spanish capital and a popular tourist attraction. For most of the Ten-

erife girls, it will be their first visit to this famous venue - and the whole weekend has left them hopping about in anticipation. Those Tigers unable to make it to Madrid will be performing at the local Adeje fiesta. The Tigers have been asked to take part in tomorrow’s big parade along the main street, which starts at about 8pm. Coaches Amanda

Mair Walters - 10-12-1960 – 6-10-2013 MAIR arrived on the Island in 1985, working as a nanny for Mr & Mrs Cook’s grandchildren.

She also worked for a time at Sloop Bar, Puerto Colon, for Dave and Fiona. And for many years, she was employed at the original Springers Bar, Ed Funchal, Los Cristianos, as well as doing stints in the nearby Fisherman’s

Inn and Margarita Restaurant. But Mair’s favourite job was working in the old paper shop that used to be located in Parque Margarita.

11th October - 17th October 2013

That’s because she could read all the magazines, watch TV and sunbathe. Sadly, the shop closed a few years ago. Mair died on Sunday,

and her family are on the Island for her cremation and to pay their last respects. It takes place at 8pm this evening (Friday), for relatives only, and then on Monday at 12 noon, there will be a memorial service at the Christian Fellowship. That will be followed by a get-together at the pool bar, inside the Parque Margarita complex, so that everyone who knew Mair can celebrate her life.

Lambert, Zoe Harker and Katie Da Costa wish all the team the best of luck, both here and in Madrid. Tenerife Tigers were born in the Lets Dance/ Vamos a Bailar school in Calleo Salvaje and are already an established fixture at many sporting events, as well as competing in national and international competitions. And if you believe cheerleaders are mere-

ly secondary to football or basketball teams, think again! Coach Zoe said: “Cheerdance is very much a sport in its own right and these girls, from four to 18, are asked to perform at a variety of events, from sporting to charity, and their enthusiasm is infectious.” For more information, check out the troupe on Facebook Pages Let´s Dance and Tenerife Tigers CheerDance.

Lions tune in to a new den

THE Arona Lions Club of Las Galletas and Costa del Silencio are resuming their Sunday afternoon live entertainment on Sunday (13th Oct). Daves Bar (formerly Zippys), near Coral Mar Square in Silencio, is the new venue. The bar is open from midday and the show begins at 1pm until 5 o’clock. Host and compere is the Lions’ Derrick,

and entertainment will be provided by Dave G Tracey (the bar’s new owner), Sonic JC, Steve Delsey and Stan Fraser. Come along and have some fun - your support for the Lions’ charity is greatly appreciated. From next month, the events will be bimonthly, on the second Sunday of the month, and Sunday dinners will be available every week from 20th October.

World Cup qualifiers England v Montenegro

Friday 11 October, ITV1, 19.30 Adrian Chiles introduces live coverage of England’s crucial penultimate World Cup qualifier against Montenegro at Wembley. Roy Hodgson’s men have the opportunity to win Group H and qualify for next year’s World Cup in Brazil if they overcome the Montenegrins and then Poland in their final game four days later. Montenegro held England to a 1-1 draw in Podgorica in March, when Wayne Rooney’s early header opened the scoring but Dejan Damjanovic scrambled home the equaliser with 13 minutes to go. After recent criticism for the way they played in drawing 0-0 with the Ukraine in Kiev, England will hope to produce a top-level performance against the team which is third in their group. For Montenegro, new Manchester City signing Stevan Jovetic and Juventus striker Mirko Vucinic will hope to unlock England’s defence and improve their own chances of qualification for the World Cup finals. Joining Adrian in the studio at Wembley are Lee Dixon and Roy Keane, while commentary comes from Clive Tyldesley and Andy Townsend.

Adrian Chiles introduces live coverage of England’s crucial final World Cup qualifier against Poland at Wembley. The national team will qualify for next year’s World Cup in Brazil if they beat the Poles, providing they also secure a victory against Montenegro at Wembley four days previously. Roy Hodgson’s men, who top group H going into the two matches, will hope for a positive performance along with the right result after receiving criticism for the way they played in drawing 0-0 with Ukraine in Kiev in September. Wayne Rooney gave England the lead in last year’s corresponding match in Warsaw but England were denied victory by Kamil Glik’s second-half equaliser. Danny Welbeck may return for England alongside Rooney after being suspended for the game against Ukraine. Meanwhile, Poland go into the match following a game in Kiev on October 11, to be played behind closed doors after a FIFA disciplinary committee investigation into racist behaviour during Ukraine’s game against San Marino. Familiar faces who may feature for Poland include Southampton goalkeeper Artur Boruc, Leicester City defender Marcin Wasilewsky, and striker Robert Lewandowski who will be looking to add to his tally of 18 international goals. Joining Adrian in the studio at Wembley are England legend Terry Butcher alongside Lee Dixon and Roy Keane, while commentary comes from Clive Tyldesley and Andy Townsend.

Naani's Day Out. Sitcom following the trials and tribulations of self-appointed Muslim community leader Mr Khan and his longsuffering family. Mr Khan is off to meet the mosque manager, whom he expects will finally get him onto the mosque committee. Naani, Mr Khan's mother-in-law, is visiting from Pakistan. Mrs Khan is worried because she has been doing nothing except stare into space all day. She tells Mr Khan that, until Naani perks up a bit, she will be staying with them indefinitely. Khan hurries to the mosque to try and enroll Naani onto a course activity and prove to Mrs Khan that Naani can go home, but Khan has a disagreement with the mosque manager. He storms out in a strop and puts plan B in to action, taking Naani to a not-entirely-appropriate alternative venue, where she meets a not-entirely-appropriate new friend.

This episode comes from the site of the John Brown's shipyard in Clydebank, Glasgow and looks back to the 1930s when Britain's shipyards, once the wonder of the industrial world, were fighting to survive. Charlie Grozier, who grew up just a street away from John Brown's, remembers being 12 years old and watching in awe as the ships his father worked on were launched. At the top of the Titan Crane, historian and shipbuilding expert Anthony Burton talks about the decline of shipyards across the country and Tom Graham explains the impact this collapse had on his home community along with thousands of others.

Footage of the Rolling Stones' Hyde Park 2013 performance, filmed almost 44 years to the day after they first invited 200,000 fans to listen to them for free in a legendary concert at the central London park on 5 July 1969, only two days after the tragic death of founder member Brian Jones - a landmark event, now widely acknowledged as one of the most significant moments in modern music history. Featuring their greatest hits from across their career, plus a special appearance by former Stones guitarist Mick Taylor - who made his debut with the band at Hyde Park in 1969 - Hyde Park 2013 takes the huge success of the Rolling Stones' 50 and Counting anniversary celebrations into a second year, and follows an acclaimed Glastonbury appearance - their debut performance at the festival in a career spanning 50 years. Highlights include Gimme Shelter, Jumpin' Jack Flash, You Can't Always Get What You Want and (I Can't Get No) Satisfaction.

Once every ten years or so, trees, shrubs and hedgerows all produce a super abundance of fruit. John finds out it is nature's way of compensating for bad seasons. He then heads for the hedgerows, where amongst the blackberries he finds the odd wild apple tree - the result of casually discarded apple cores. He starts picking and soon has enough to take along to a community apple pressing event, where he catches up with the original cider-drinking superstars, The Wurzels.

All have less than ÂŁ100k to spend, little or no experience and life savings on the line. In this episode, the duo help Shropshire farmers Ruth and Tony. The couple are on the brink of retirement and have ambitious plans to replace their crumbling farmhouse with a determinedly modern design. Further more, they believe they can save money by handling every stage of the build themselves, despite a lack of experience or training in housebuilding. When their plans spiral out of control, Kieran and Piers try to help them avoid making any further, costly mistakes. However as winter closes and their money dwindles, the farmers face some tough decisions.

W C choice How to Build a Super Car BBC2, 20:00

With extraordinary access to one of the country's most secretive companies, this shows how Formula One racing team McLaren is now building a road car using some of their F1 technology. During the summer of 2011, McLaren launched the MP4-12C. It is claimed that this 168,500 pound super car is one of the most cutting-edge and glamorous machines ever built and shows British design and precision engineering at its best. The programme goes inside the McLaren factory, meets the team of engineers and McLaren boss Ron Dennis, and discovers how the car has been designed, tested and built from scratch, including its unique carbon-fibre 'monocell' technology and its engine - the first the company has ever built. Plus the film finds out what racing drivers Jenson Button and Lewis Hamilton think about the car and there is a look at how its sound was created in a studio.

Homeland Channel 4, 21:00

As Saul attempts to track down those responsible for the Langley attack, he recruits an unlikely expert to follow the money trail.

Formula 1: Japanese Big Star's Little Star Grand Prix ITV1, 16:25 BBC1, 06.00

Suzi Perry presents live coverage of the Japanese Grand Prix from Suzuka. Red Bull’s Sebastian Vettel is on course for a fourth straight world championship title and, given his pedigree around this circuit, it would be hard to bet against him adding another 25 points towards yet another drivers’ crown. In 2012, he cruised to victory after taking full advantage of a puncture suffered by championship rival Fernando Alonso on the first lap that caused him to retire. That made it three wins out of four years around this track, which is renowned for being one of the most challenging on the F1 calendar. A full re-run of today’s Grand Prix will be repeated on BBC One at 2pm, Sunday 13 October.

11th October - 17th October 2013

Stephen Mulhern presents the last edition of the series in which three well-loved celebrities share the stage with some brand new co-stars - their own children. Over the course of the show their private lives become a little more public, and the risk of embarrassment increases. Playing for charity, the guests hope to get their hands on a possible jackpot of 15,000 pounds. Tonight's celebrity guests are Sally Bercow, Diarmuid Gavin and Suzanne Shaw, all accompanied by their offspring.

Stephen Fry: Out There BBC2, 21.00 In a new BBC Two series, Stephen Fry: Out There, Stephen travels across the globe to find out what it means to be gay. Visiting Uganda, America, Russia, Brazil and India, Stephen encounters some of the most notorious homophobes on the planet to try to understand the origin of their beliefs; he also meets victims of homophobic abuse. The first episode sees Stephen’s journey start close to home as he meets Sir Elton John and David Furnish to talk about their experiences coming out, their civil partnership and decision to raise a child together. He also meets a young Iranian man seeking refuge in the UK as he faces the death penalty in his home country for being gay. Stephen then travels to Uganda - where the government is proposing a new law that would put gay people to death - and meets government ministers and religious leaders who support the bill. He sees the impact this proposed legislation is having on the lives of gay men and women, and has an emotional conversation with Stosh, a young gay woman who was a victim of ‘corrective rape’ Lastly, Stephen travels to America to explore the workings of Reparative Therapy, a therapy that claims to change people from gay to straight, and visits actor Neil Patrick Harris to talk about his experience of being openly gay in Hollywood.

Police and trading standards officers raid a house where the occupants are selling fake fashion. A complete mobile fake vodka factory in a lorry is discovered just outside Scarborough. A huge consignment of fake washing powder is tracked by investigators all the way from China to Cheshire and the fakers end up in prison. We follow the work of investigators from the Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency and see them raid a fake medicines dealer. We see how tourists to London are tricked by criminals offering them fake holiday accommodation. And we follow the incredible story of how 108 million eggs were fraudulently relabelled in Britain's biggest ever fake food scam. We see how Customs and Excise uncover a huge fake vodka and tobacco factory in London and see how shops sell fake booze. And we reveal how a grandmother helped bring down a multi-million pound criminal empire selling fake golf equipment.

Tom also celebrates classic pub snacks like pickled eggs, spicy nuts and pork scratchings and shows how easy it is to make all three. They are the perfect beer snacks and he tests them out on some real ale drinkers at a micropub in Kent.

In this candid yet sensitive documentary teenagers give an insight into how it feels to be a virgin in 2013, in a world where social networking and shockingly easy access to porn have transformed the sexual landscape and piled on the pressure to lose your virginity like never before. In these days where sexual content is freely available and is seen by a large number of young people, there's great pressure on teens to simply get it over and done with. These 14 to 19 year olds and their parents offer their opinion on intimacy and intercourse, porn and social pressures. The film follows the group of young virgins over the summer of 2013 and meets a 15-year-old girl who's considering sex with a boy she met via social networking and a 16-year-old who believes she's the oldest virgin in Sunderland.

Holby City BBC1, 20:00

Malick struggles to accept that he is now a patient for the foreseeable future. He pushes his son away and doesn't acknowledge that he needs counselling for his trauma. He is stopped in his tracks when the truth hits home about his recovery and whether there is any hope he will work again, leaving him at a complete loss. At the top of the day, Elliot is delighted to be working with his new mentee Zosia March, but she proves to be quite a handful when she voluntarily decides to 'psyche' a patient's mother - much to Elliot's chagrin. When the mother complains, he soon realises who he is dealing with in Zosia; she then reads him the riot act on why Elliot cannot get rid of her. Sacha feels uneasy about lying to Chrissie over his secret kiss with Mo.

Masters of Sex Channel 4, 21:00

As Johnson fights to save her job and struggles to care for her children, Masters moves his study to a brothel, but he finds the place chaotic and unmanageable without Johnson's help.

The Paradise - series two

Bill Gallagher’s glittering drama set in a Victorian department store returns for a second series on BBC One. When, at the end of series one, Moray jilted Katherine and chose Denise, Lord Glendenning’s vengeance was swift. He took ownership of The Paradise and Moray was cast out. For a year, Denise and Moray were separated. Moray worked in Paris while, in the wake of the scandal, and for reasons that remain a mystery to her, Denise was permitted to stay at The Paradise. Ripped apart the moment their love was declared, Denise has only Moray’s letters and her brave determination to help her survive. Meanwhile Lord Glendenning and Katherine vanished from the city... Now, a year later, The Paradise is struggling to survive without its charismatic owner, Moray and Lord Glendenning has instructed his agent to sell The Paradise. When unforeseen forces bring Moray back, he and Denise are delighted to be reunited, but their elation is fleeting as the shock arrival of Katherine and her new husband Tom Weston sends everybody spinning. Once the charismatic owner of England’s first department store, Moray now finds himself manager for the new owners, Katherine Glendenning and Tom Weston. Denise and Moray join forces to try and reclaim their dream of The Paradise, but Katherine and Tom prove worthy opponents. While Denise’s ambitions flourish and her star burns even brighter, Moray finds himself drawn into a dangerous deal of deception that could endanger everything he holds dear. Increasingly frustrated by the limitations imposed on women in Victorian society, Denise finds herself at odds with the man she loves and both are forced to wrestle with what their hearts truly desire. In the meantime, Miss Audrey, no longer content with the status of her relationship with Edmund, is pushed into doing something about it. The Paradise is written and created by Bill Gallagher and made in-house by BBC Drama Productions. The executive producer for the BBC is Susan Hogg and the producer is Simon Lewis. The series was commissioned by Ben Stephenson, Controller of BBC Drama Commissioning and Danny Cohen, former Controller of BBC One (now BBC Director of Television).

She tackles both their financial failures and domestic dramas and tries to guide them back onto the path to success. Home-grown family businesses make a significant contribution to the country’s economy: family firms make up nearly half of all mid-sized businesses and 75 per cent of the 4.6 million private sector enterprises in the UK. But with just 30 per cent of family firms operating into the second generation of family ownership, Alex will help families innovate, evolve, and most importantly, present a united front to ensure business thrives through generations to come. The methods Alex uses will vary across the series, but will always have a clear business message at their heart. We’ll also witness her unlocking the emotion behind family relationships, to get to the heart of the business problems. Series two peaked with over 3.1 million and an 11.7 per cent share when it aired on BBC Two earlier this year. Alex Polizzi says: “I relish any opportunity to help improve family businesses as I’m only too aware of the stresses, strains and occasional pleasures of being involved in a family business. Owners of family businesses work incredibly hard and contribute enormously to our economy.” Melanie Leach, Managing Director of Twofour Broadcast, says: “The Fixer is a format that allows Alex to roll her sleeves up and get stuck in with her own unique, no-nonsense approach. We’re delighted to have the opportunity of unleashing her on a new batch of struggling family firms.” Alison Kirkham, Head of Commissioning, Factual Features & Formats, says: “It is always really gratifying to bring programmes back for a third series. The audience on Two have developed a real affection for The Fixer. I’m so pleased that since I persuaded Alex to come to Two, she has surpassed all my hopes for her presence and role on the channel.” Tom Edwards, Commissioning Editor, Factual Features and Formats, says: “Through The Fixer, Alex has proven one of the strongest talent launches on BBC Two of recent years. We very much look forward to working with her on this – and other ventures – going forward.”

Joe Crowley presents the series revealing the potential that vacant properties can offer prospective buyers. In this episode, Joe meets Ian and Marcie, who have just bought an empty six bedroom detached Victorian house in Muswell Hill. They're keen to share their plans to turn the property into a modern and extremely energy efficient family home - and to get as much guidance as they can. To give Ian and Marcie tips and inspiration, Joe introduces them to a couple who have converted a similar size period house into a spectacularly energy efficient home. Joe also learns how the renovation of an historic building in Great Yarmouth will not only create new houses but also provide training for local apprentices wishing to become Master Craftsmen, and we follow empty property officer Sue Li on her mission to save abandoned houses in Derby.

Pressure Pad John Barrowman hosts Pressure Pad, a brand new visually iconic general knowledge quiz which starts on BBC One in November. Pressure Pad is a highly visual and exciting new format and is unlike any previous quiz show. Courageous contestants descend into an illuminated arena, the Pressure Pad, to play the game. Quizmaster John Barrowman holds court over and directs the game with his characteristic style and flair. A consummate entertainer, John keeps the audience enthralled, and the contestants’ nerves in check, as he takes them through the high-tension game. John says: “I am thrilled to be hosting this new innovative quiz show for BBC One and look forward to seeing whether contestants can take the heat on the Pressure Pad, and join in having fun with me.” In the programme, two teams of five players are pitted against each other, with the contestants looking down on the giant circular Pressure Pad. As the lights dim, the floor lights up, and the game commences... One by one, the contestants face their opposite number, and go down onto the Pressure Pad – setting foot in the quizzing arena. Each daily episode comprises four different individual head-to-head games, and a team final. Win your head-to-head, and you get to stay and play the final. The team with the most players for the final will have put itself in the strongest position. If you lose your head-to-head, you’re out, and can’t help your team. Then it is just four questions and the victor is declared. The winning team receives £2,000 and also the chance to play for an extra rolling prize fund.

Savannah’s heart and soul HAVING spent the last 13 years working this circuit, it is a pleasure for me to write about some of the people I have been lucky enough to work alongside.

This week is a little different. The story starts all those years ago when I was finding my feet and searching out venues, looking for work and seeking out the busy areas. Parque de la Paz plays host to an abundance of bars, and the Soul Suite, pioneered in the early days by Joe Harriet, has always been busy. Joe’s kids were seen down at the bar regularly (but not on school nights) and were actively encouraged to sing and perform, much to the delight of the audience. There is nothing more heart-warming than seeing young people with talent and confidence on stage - singing, dancing or doing what ever it is that they are good at. It was always a pleasure to listen to the two sisters Savannah and Iona singing together, and here’s a nice little twist to this

tale. A couple of weeks ago and just two doors down from The Soul Suite, The Highland Paddy Showbar had Savannah Harriet billed as the featured artist of the night. So, just metres away from where I heard her sing as a teenager in her dad’s bar 13 years ago, here she was, now in her twenties, treading the boards as a pro artiste. Her publicity poster is simple, yet stands right out on the billboard, so I got myself a drink and stayed for the show. I wasn’t disappointed. Savanah arrived in a figure-hugging white dress which turned heads instantly.

There is no doubt when some artistes walk in to a venue that they are a singer, or some kind of entertainer. Savannah is definitely one of those artistes. The billboard stated that the show would consist of music from the genres of Soul, Motown and Reggae. These are the three big-hitters and guaranteed crowdpleasers at this time of year in Tenerife. So before she had even sung a note, every other box had been ticked. The singing was just the icing on the cake, and what a soft yet soulful tone this girl has! She has the ability to

control her voice well around vocal scales, enabling her to put her own signature on every song. She walked in like Rihanna, but sang like Savannah with her original-sounding voice. She has a characteristic in her voice which may have been influenced by the music she grew up with, and the music of right now. But Savannah’s tone and vocal signatures are what stand her out as a singer. The links between songs were natural, and she chatted with the audience as though she were in her back garden. I suppose you could call it that anyway because it’s exactly where she grew up. From the word go, Savannah encouraged people to get up and dance. And because her playlist was excellent, it wasn’t long before the dance-floor area was full. With a huge beautiful smile, Savannah kept the crowd going from start to finish with pace, variety and a whole heap of talent. I thoroughly enjoyed watching and listening to this stunning, female vocalist, who would be an asset to any venue.

TEAS ARE SERVED! IT’S finally here, Super Sunday, the biggest day in the Island’s entertainment diary! I’m talking, of course, about the 2013 Tenerife Entertainment Awards. Along with many others, I love the day - and I know that those of you who have never been before will absolutely love it as well. I have no speculative info on winners, but I have had a little wink as to the basic format of the show - and the performances are set to amaze. This year´s host is Joe Ferguson, and it will serve as his inauguration into Tenerife’s Hall of Fame. What I mean is that the Awards ceremony is only ever hosted by the most popular and well-known entertainers who have worked here. Nathan Swift, who has hosted previous years, is still considered the best-ever Linekers DJ. Joe Ferguson, the most successful of all radio DJs in Tenerife, is now in the hot seat. That means it is bound to be a brilliant event, I know Joe cannot wait, and his modesty knows no bounds! He has asked me to make sure you all know that he fully expects a standing ovation. See you all on Sunday afternoon at The Castle, in San Miguel.

PLANS are already underway for the Christmas and New Year events at Tramps. But there is one annual event guaranteed always to be a huge success: the Tramps Halloween Party. Every year, on All Hallows’ Eve, the workers of Tenerife don masks, apply make-up and dress up as zombies, witches and demons for one night, with everyone trying to outdo one another. The funny thing is that you can never recognise anyone. Tramps pride themselves on dressing the bar up Halloween style, too. And for one night only, Tramps will become a dungeon for demons, a wallow for witches and something beginning with Z for where zombies hang out. It’s always a top night out when groups of people dress up, and I’m talking a whole workforce and not just a group of holiday-makers. This is a spectacle to behold if you are on holiday - and a brilliant night to be involved in if you are dressing up and coming to the party at Tramps. Details on the flyer to the right.

bargains galore! By Sue McDonald WITH all that is going on with the housing market, there are some real bargains to be picked up.

This applies particularly to those who have cash they can afford to invest, and leave in place for a while. For obvious reasons, repossessions are often left in a bit of a state, sometimes even with every last fixture and fitting removed That is understandable, I suppose, when hard-up owners are having to return their homes to the very people who caused this financial crisis in the first place! Our original business back in the “good old days” was kitting out properties for rental purposes. Things have now gone full circle for us because this is again proving a good source of work for us. It’s just the circle of life. Even though we are working from home, we still offer all the same

Page 38

products and services as before. When people are buying the properties so cheap, they are looking to receive some rental income, and, I would imagine, just sit on the property as an investment until prices go up. Obviously this might not happen for some years, but when you are buying at rock-bottom prices, and the rental income covers any community fees and running costs, these investors have little to lose. Clearly in this situation, the furnishings need to be suitable for tenants, whether for short or long-term lets. Items should be tough enough to deal with the rigours of the rental, but this doesn’t mean that they can’t look good, too! Some items are worth investing money in, such as a strong and comfortable sofa bed to increase occupancy, and comfortable mattresses with strong bases. But there are other areas where money can be saved. For example, a corner table between the sofas can be of lesser quality to keep the price down to meet the

budget. And because our design service is included in the price of the furniture, we can mix and match - I don’t mind getting a corner table from that Swedish furniture shop if it helps me meet a client’s budget! We also find that these investors just want the job done in one go; they certainly don’t want to be traipsing round a lot of shops, dealing with the language barrier and co-ordinating several deliveries. So we offer a complete service, which will upgrade the property, from its current condition to being available for rental in a matter of days. Our furniture-pack service includes everything necessary to do this, from the main items such as sofas and beds, curtains and lights, right down to the towels and sheets, plus the kettle, toaster, crockery and cutlery. Literally, the client will be able to send in the cleaners (which, needless to say, we can also arrange), and the property will be suitable for rental, right down to the last teaspoon.

Help to Buy scheme is building quickly! SUCH is the clamour for the second phase of the UK Government’s Help to Buy scheme that it has been brought forward three months.

It should have started on 1st January but is already active, and the first mortgage rates on offer have been described by the lender as “fair and competitive”. This phase of the controversial plan, to help more people get on the property ladder, is extended to cover old homes instead of just new-build properties. It will see 15% of a property’s value guaranteed by taxpayers, in return for a fee from the lender, to help home-buyers obtain mortgages worth up to 95%. RBS and its Natwest subsidiary are offering two and five-year fixedrate deals at 4.99% and 5.49% interest rates respectively, with no fee. They anticipate a rush of interest, signing up 25,500 first and nexttime buyers over three years. The banks confirmed that 740 of their branches would extend opening hours for two weeks to cope with expected demand. But Lloyd Cochrane, their head of mortgages, told Sky News there would be no reckless lending, and potential customers will be put through tough, affordability checks. “Based on what they earn and what they spend, we ensure that they can afford the

mortgage now. But, really importantly, we ensure they can afford the mortgage at a rate of 7%, so that gives us and our customers the confidence that they can afford the mortgage into the long term.” Halifax, owned by Lloyds Banking Group, has also confirmed its offering: a two-year fixed rate at 5.19% with a £995 product fee - and customers will be able to apply for the mortgages from today (Friday). HSBC will be taking part later in the year, making it the first major lender to sign up with no taxpayer support. Virgin Money and the start-up Aldermore Bank will sign up in January, while Barclays and Santander UK are still considering whether to get involved. The Government will offer £12bn in mortgage guarantees over three years, and some estimates suggest 180,000 loans could be taken out under the initiative. Those lenders already offering mortgages will have them guaranteed by the Government from January. Prime Minister David Cameron said: “Help to Buy is going to make the dream of home ownership a reality for many who would otherwise have been shut out.” Chancellor George Osborne said: “Too many people are still being denied the dream of owning their own home. “That is why we have brought forward the launch of this scheme. Borrowers can now start applying for mortgages with a 5% deposit. The scheme means homebuyers will have to find as little as 5%

on homes worth up to £600,000. Depending on the size of the deposit, the Government will then guarantee up to 15% of the property value in return for a fee from the lender. An earlier phase of the scheme, offering 20% loans on new-build properties, has already helped more than 15,000 people buy a new home since it was launched six months ago. But Help to Buy remains controversial because critics fear it could fuel further rises in a housing market which is seeing prices already going up rapidly. But the Treasury said that while house-price inflation stands at 3.3%, it amounts to just 0.8% when the property hotspots of London and the South East are removed. The latest report on the market from the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (Rics) suggests prices are likely to surge further ahead in London and the South East. That’s because the supply of homes is lagging behind the growing demand. The organisation measured home sales at a four-year high last month, yet it is still historically low. Chris Leslie, Labour’s Shadow Chief Secretary to the Treasury, said: “If ministers are serious about helping firsttime buyers, they should bring forward investment to build more affordable homes. “Rising demand for housing must be matched with rising supply - but under this Government, housebuilding is at its lowest level since the 1920s.”

TomTato™ By David Hudgell It sounds like an Irish packet of crisps, but this Half-hardy annual is unique, it’s both a tomato and a potato plant!

A major horticultural breakthrough from Thompson & Morgan! Above the ground harvest over 500 cherry tomatoes, below the ground harvest heavy yields of delicious white potatoes which are incredibly versatile. You can boil them, mash them, roast them or make chips. That’s right! From one plant you can harvest tomatoes AND potatoes. Thompson and Morgan have been working on this for over 15 years, but this is the first time that plants have been successfully produced commercially. Tomatoes are members of the potato family and are therefore naturally compatible with potatoes. Each TomTato™ plant is specially grafted by hand to create this unique double cropping feature. There’s no genetic modification it’s an all-natural, and safe process. You can grow them indoors or outdoors, in a patio pot, on your allotment or on the vegetable patch. Grow TomTato™ plants on in warm, frost-

free conditions until all risk of frost has passed, potting on if necessary to a slightly bigger pot. Once all risk of frost has passed, gradually acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over a period of 7 to 10 days. • Grow TomTato™ in a greenhouse or sheltered position outside in full sun. For best results grow in a container which holds at least 40 litres of compost such as our Patio Planters, or a deep container with at least 50cm (20”) diameter. A large container is needed for proper development of both crops.

• Plant grafted tomatopotato plants with the graft union below soil level, burying the stem up to the second tomato leaf from the base. This aids stability and growth, and ensures the potatoes develop fully underground. Water thoroughly after planting. • Support your TomTato™ plant as it grows, using several stout 1.5m (5’) canes, or a similar strong support frame. TomTato™ produces vigorous growth and heavy trusses of fruit, so will require regular tying to its support.

• Alternatively grow TomTato™ plants in the ground on fertile, reliably moist, well drained soil. Prepare the soil in early spring by adding plenty of well rotted manure to improve its structure and fertility. Space plants at a distance of 60cm (24”) apart and water them thoroughly after planting. • Water TomTato™ plants frequently to keep the compost evenly moist. Once the first truss of fruit has formed, feed regularly with a high potash plant food such as Chempak® Soluble Tomato Food (1kg pack just £9.99). Feed weekly at the first truss stage, twice weekly at the second truss stage and at every watering by the 3rd truss stage. Plants will benefit from the application of Chempak® Calcium Multi Action Fertiliser during peak cropping times to prevent blossom end rot. • Due to its fast growth, make sure you tie TomTato™ to its support regularly. Each week remove any sideshoots that develop between the main stem and the leaf stems. Watch our Sideshooting Tomato Plants Video for further advice. Although rare, if any potato shoots appear at the base of the plant, pinch them out to ground level. • Top up the compost in containers every so often to prevent potatoes near the soil

surface from becoming green and inedible. • Once container-grown plants have produced 6 or 7 trusses (or up to 5 trusses if grown outdoors), pinch out the top of the main stem. This focuses the plant’s energy on producing a good crop of high quality tomatoes. Greenhouse plants do not require stopping and can be left to grow on as required. • Tomatoes can be harvested as they ripen from July to October. To help ripen green tomatoes, harvest red tomatoes regularly. If growing TomTato™ in containers they can be moved to a frost-free

position in the autumn for prolonged crops of tomatoes. Once the tomatoes have finished cropping, cut back plants and harvest the potatoes below. If plants contract the fungal disease blight, cut the stems to ground level and dispose of all foliage. Leave potatoes in the ground for 2 weeks before lifting. • If growing TomTato™ outdoors, remove any remaining green tomato trusses before the first frosts in autumn. Cut the plant stem to ground level and leave for 10 days before lifting the potatoes below. Source Thompson and Morgan

IT’S not often you get something for free these days, especially in the current economic climate.

Here at Robot, we believe that every client who walks through our door deserves one thing for free - and that’s our impartial advice! There’s many a time we speak with clients about their hair and often, they don’t go ahead with what we are advising. Sometimes, clients who walk in for advice don’t like what we are saying and elect to go elsewhere, which is their choice. But even if we lose a client because she doesn’t take us up on our opinion, or we as stylists don’t want to carry out the work being asked for, what matters most to us is that we have been honest. We often get asked to colour hair which will not withstand that particular process, or we’re asked to give a client a shade she might fancy on a whim, and we know she will regret it later. It’s all about being honest. We cannot guarantee that every client will walk out of the salon satisfied. But what we do hope is that we have done the utmost to listen to you, the customer, and you have given us your time and listened to what we

are saying. Your stylists should be honest about what is happening with your hair, even though it’s sometimes not what you want to hear. If they tell you that something isn’t possible, then normally it isn’t. We don’t force anyone to have something done to her hair which we do not believe will suit. We always consult our clients as to what they want, and what we want to do. Then, and only then, do we start work. To us, your hair is too important to “mess” with. We have seen so many come to us this year in tears over what

they have had done elsewhere. Listen to what your stylists are saying to you and decide if they have your best interests at heart. As hairdressers, we have all been trained to give this service – it’s just that some women choose not to take it on board. If you can’t trust your stylist to give you free, impartial advice, then look for someone who does. In this time of cutbacks and making savings where we can, we still try to give what’s best for our clients: HONESTY!”

And it could have long-term effects on the mental health of young children, says a study, published in the Neuropsycho-pharmacology journal. In England and Wales, 17% of women smoke while pregnant, and the figure is 45% among the under-20s, Although most will go on to have a healthy baby, smoking can cause considerable damage to the unborn child. Exposure to cigarettes in the womb is believed to alter brain structure. But little is known about how the organ’s development is affected, or if the behavioural problems observed are controlled by these differences. Dr Hanan El Marroun and colleagues assessed the brains and emotional functioning of 113 children aged 6-8 years, whose mothers smoked from one to nine cigarettes a day while expecting. Seventeen of them stopped when they discovered they were preg-

nant, and the other 96 continued to puff away throughout. The results were compared with a group of 113 children who were unexposed to cigarettes in the womb. Those kids whose mums continued smoking had smaller brains, with less grey and white matter. A study involving more than 200 children found that those whose mothers were regular smokers while they were in the womb were at greater risk of stress and anxiety They exhibited more emotional problems - such as depressive symptoms and anxiety and a smaller superior frontal cortex which specifically which controls mood. Importantly, brain development of children whose mothers quit during pregnancy displayed no such problems. Dr El Marroun, of the Erasmus Medical Centre in Rotterdam, said: “It’s well known that cigarette-smoking can cause serious health problems, including cardiovascular diseases and cancer. “Smoking during pregnancy has been linked to spontaneous abortions, reduced growth and sudden-infantdeath syndrome. “During childhood and

adolescence, pre-natal tobacco exposure has been associated with behavioural and cognitive problems. “Furthermore, evidence is accumulating that pre-natal tobacco exposure is related to psychiatric disorders and mortality from childhood to young adulthood.” The doctor said tobacco could affect brain development in the womb through nicotine - which has been demonstrated in animal studies - or disrupt the migration of brain cells. Another possible explanation is that maternal smoking leads to the unborn child being starved of oxygen and nutrients because the arteries become clogged. Dr Marroun added: “Overall, our findings suggest long-term effects of pre-natal tobacco exposure on brain development and emotional problems in young children. “It emphasises the importance of preventing and reducing cigarettesmoking during pregnancy. “Our findings provide further support for the need of clinical and public-health strategies aimed at the prevention of pre-natal tobaccoexposure of children.” Researchers estimate that each year in England and Wales, hundreds of babies are born with a physical defect directly caused by their mother’s smoking. And every year there, around 3,700 babies are born with such a condition. The chance of a baby being born with missing or deformed limbs because of its mum smoked is 26% higher and a cleft lip or palate is 28% more likely. Similarly, the risk of club foot is 28% greater, and gastro-intestinal defects 27% more. Skull defects are 33% more likely, and eye defects 25% more common. Worryingly, of the 700,000 babies born each year in England and Wales, around 120,000 are born to mums who smoke.

Lose weight… and avoid arthritic aches and pains By Val Sainsbury MILLIONS of Britons could avoid the pain of arthritis by shedding some weight.

By dropping around a stone, or even less, overweight people could cut their risk of developing the debilitating condition by 25%. The Arthritis Research UK charity believes the NHS spends £5.2billion a year treating the condition - and replacing at least 77,000 knees and 66,000 hips. Now, though, Dutch researchers have discovered how eating more healthily and taking modest exercise can help overweight people ease the wear and tear on their joints which, inevitably, leads to the condition.

Scientists at Rotterdam’s Erasmus Medical Centre recruited 407 women aged between 50 and 60. Although none had osteoarthritis, they were all overweight, with a body mass index of 27 or higher. A healthy BMI score ranges between 18.5 and 24.9. Half the women were put on a programme of healthy eating and regular exercise, while the others were told to carry on with their normal diet and lifestyle. The researchers tracked the women for more than two years and found that 20% of those in the “unhealthy” group went on to develop osteoarthritis in a knee. But in the group which adopted a healthy lifestyle, the figure was just 15%. Further research revealed that the benefits

kicked in after the women had lost just 11lbs of their excess weight. Research leader Dr Jos Runhaar, said: “Doctors and physiotherapists can use these results to encourage patients to change their lifestyle.” And the good news is that British experts have welcomed the findings, rather than attributing them to yet

another “miracle” cure. Professor Alan Silman, medical director of Arthritis Research UK, said: “This chimes very much with our research, which shows that compared with someone of normal weight, an obese person is 14 times more likely to develop knee osteoarthritis. “Losing weight, however modest, when com-

Anti-maleria fight hots up THE world’s first malaria vaccine could be in widespread use within two years. Drug-making company GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) hopes to get the go-ahead for a prototype vaccine after trials showed it offered children a partial shield against the disease. Results for the Phase III stage of the closelyfollowed RTS,S vaccine were unveiled at a conference for maleria experts in Durban, South Africa. It demonstrated that 18 months after vaccination, children aged 5-17 months had a 46% reduction in the risk of clinical malaria compared with unvaccinated peers. But in infants aged 6-12 weeks at the time of vaccination, there was just a 27% reduction in risk. A spokeswoman for GSK said the company would file an application to the European Medicines Agency (EMA) under a process aimed at facilitating new drugs for poorer countries. Under that process,

the European medications watchdog gives a “scientific opinion” on the safety and efficacy of the vaccine. This opens the way for the vaccine to be considered by the World Health Organisation (WHO) which, in turn, can fast-track its licensing in individual countries in Africa. “We will submit an application in 2014,” added the GSK spokeswoman. “The intent is not to make the vaccine available in the EU because it is being developed specifically for children in sub-Saharan Africa, who are most at risk of malaria” The RTS,S vaccine is a front-runner in the race to develop the first vaccine for malaria, which, according to the latest WHO figures available (for 2010), infected around 220 million people, killing 660,000 of them. The toll is highest among small children in Africa. The new data presented in Durban showed far less protection for infants, as opposed to young children, and

11th October - 17th October 2013

also pointed to declining effectiveness over time. At the one-year mark, efficacy among the young children group was 47% against clinical malaria and 56% against severe malaria. Among the infants it was 46% effective against clinical malaria and 36% effective against severe malaria at the one-year stage. But at the 18-month mark, effectiveness had fallen to 46% and 36 among young children, and to 27% and 15% among infants. “There are a number of possible hypotheses for these differences we are looking at,” said Lucas Otieno, one of the principal investigators in the trial who works for the Kenya Medical Research Institute. Theories include possible interference with the vaccine by maternal anti-bodies, plus the impact of vaccines for other diseases which were administered to the infants at around the same time, he said. Otieno stressed that the trial was ongoing,

and added: “We hope to have more information on the long-term protection some time in 2014. The research was carried out at 11 centres in seven African countries, covering more than 15,000 infants and children. The trial also included distributing insecticide-treated bednets to help fight the spread of malaria. These were used by 78% of children and 86% of infants in the trial. If it gets the green light for RTS,S, GSK says the vaccine will probably be distributed through agencies such as Unicef and the GAVI Alliance, a publicprivate health partnership. The price would cover the cost of manufacturing, plus a 5% margin, to be ploughed into research for next-generation vaccines, said the company’s spokeswoman. GSK says it had invested more than 258 million euros in RTS,S - and expects to invest even more until development is complete.

bined with exercise, is a panacea at every stage.” Osteoarthritis is caused by the destruction of cartilage, which is the body’s built-in shock absorber. Cartilage soaks up the impact from walking, running or lifting, so that bones do not rub together and disintegrate. But in osteoarthritis, the cartilage starts to break down and, as bones come into contact, the friction makes joints swollen and extremely painful - and 20% of over-45s are known to have osteoarthritis in at least one knee. With ageing and obesity among the most common contributors to the condition, the number of people in Britain consulting a GP about knee osteoarthritis alone could rise from 4.7 million in 2010 to 8.3million by 2035. There is no cure or effective treatment for the condition other than pain relief - which is often inadequate - or joint replacement. More

extreme measures include steroid injections to dampen down inflammation. Dr Silman added: “once osteoarthritis has developed in one knee, the risk of getting it in the other one increases five-fold, and the danger to health and quality of life of obesity is insidious. “At every stage, excess body weight increases the level of pain and disability and undermines the efficacy of treatment for osteoarthritis. “And whereas high blood pressure and diabetes - other examples of obesity-related health - may be substantially improved on losing weight and are relatively easy to control with therapy, osteoarthritis is irreversible. “But achieving a healthy weight reduces the risk of developing the disease in the first place. It also relieves existing symptoms and helps to prevent further deterioration.” An American study at Wake Forest University, in North Carolina, found strict dieting and moderate exercise slashed knee pain in osteoarthritis sufferers by half. Researchers studied 454 patients who dieted for 18 months with the aim of losing at least 10% of their body weight. They concluded that this combination of controlling eating habits and keeping mobile was “potentially one of the best treatments” for knee pain.

flagship food brand and our aim with the relaunch is simple – to be the best product on the market. It is already the fastest growing premium brand in the market, and we’ve reviewed every product in the range to be sure it’s fit to carry the finest brand. “We’re confident finest offers our customers the very best food in the market, at the accessible prices they expect from Tesco”. Tesco buyers scour the UK and the world

to source the best products for the finest range, and as part of the relaunch we have made hundreds of them even better.” Finest trifle now has a base of Boudoir fingers instead of plain sponge and uses Amontillado sherry syrup for a more authentic flavour. On finest beef steaks and joints they have introduced Aberdeen Angus and Dry Aged products for a richer and more succulent taste. And their finest pasta now has one of the highest

protein contents in the market (14%) for a superior flavour and texture. Tesco finest first launched in 1998 in just a few stores, with a focus on ready meals, and has since expanded to cover many categories of food. The relaunch is being supported by sponsorship of the current series of Downton Abbey, the nation’s most popular drama, and by a multi-media advertising campaign which starts in mid October.

The Gorgeous Kitchen A unique collaboration between four female British TV chefs has been announced.

Gee Charman (former chef at Kensington Palace and right-hand woman of celebrity chefs including The Hairy Bikers, Simon Rimmer and Gordon Ramsay), Sophie Michell (executive chef of Pont St. at Belgraves hotel), Jo Pratt (bestselling author of ‘In the mood for food’) and Caroline Mi Li Artiss (one of the first chefs to be discovered on YouTube) will launch The Gorgeous Kitchen - a new contemporary restaurant at Heathrow’s Terminal 2 : The Queen’s Terminal next June. Specialising in beautiful global cuisine utilising British-grown produce, The Gorgeous Kitchen will be a welcome addition to the airport dining scene and will serve quick, wholesome and seasonal dishes throughout the day in a warm and enchanting space. The menus that have been created by Gee, Sophie, Jo and Caroline effortlessly blend their culinary talents and champion their united aim to serve flavoursome and satisfying dishes to suit every type of guest. From Sweetcorn & coriander fritters served with sweet chilli cream cheese and king prawns to Maple & bourbon glazed pork belly with ‘Waldorf ’ salad and chorizo toad-in-thehole, the menu is fresh,

imaginative and will be ever enticing to the most frequent of flyers. In addition to an a la carte offering, The Gorgeous Kitchen’s ‘Express’ menu coupled with spectacular speed of service, will allow even the most timepressed of travellers to enjoy a meal within 15 minutes.

Finnair takes a tablet to soften the fuel bills

FINNAIR, the largest airline in Finland, is to offer tablet computers to passengers, especially those bound for the Canaries. But not out of the goodness of its heart! The company believes it can save in fuel costs by removing fixed screens on its planes. It will also reduce weight carried by removing the wiring attached to screens and, in addition, derive new income from paid services delivered on the tablets. All in all, it adds up to big savings in fuel costs. The Wall Street Journal

reports that Lufthansa estimated a typical inflight entertainment system adds around 70,000 euros a year to the running costs of a Boeing 767. The tablets will be available from next month on Finnair’s five new A321 “Sharklet” planes - the first ever to be run by an airline and the remainder will join the company’s fleet in the run-up to March. As Finnair planes do not have wireless internet connections, customers will not be able to read the news on their own devices. Instead, they will be able to rent a tablet preloaded with magazines, newspapers, games and films.

Travel companies should send costly calls packing

Which? is calling on travel companies to hang up on costly calls after we found 70% of travel firms using high rate telephone numbers for customer services or complaints. Airlines including Jet2. com, Ryanair, Monarch Airlines, FlyBe, KLM, Aer Lingus and Lufthansa also use 0871 numbers for reservations, complaints or other customer enquiries. They also found 15 of the biggest train operators using 0844 or 0845 numbers for their customer helplines. Following their investigation of 76 firms, Which? is renewing its calls for travel companies to be subject to the EU Consumer Rights Directive (CRD), which states that customer helplines must be charged at no more than the basic rate. The

Government is currently consulting on whether to include travel, timeshare and package travel in the ban. They believe consumers should not have to pay a premium to make a complaint, or be faced with a high phone bill if they want to speak to a company. The Which? Costly Calls campaign wants all companies to provide a basic rate number for all customer service and complaints telephone lines. Richard Lloyd, Which? executive director, said: “Going on holiday is meant to be a pleasure but there is nothing fun about being whacked with a costly call. It’s a disgrace that people face bumper bills just to ask a question or make a complaint about their travel booking. The Gov-

ernment should close the loophole that allows travel companies to use costly phone numbers without delay.” Other findings from our travel investigation include: · 24 of the 38 airlines we looked at give high rate numbers for customers to call for customer service or to complain. · 1 ferry companies give 0871, 0872, 0845 or 0843 numbers for customers to call for customer service. · Coach firms National Express and Eurolines use 0871 numbers for both customer service or complaints. Green Line also uses an 0844 number for both, while Megabus has an 0871 number for customer service. · Typically the 0871 numbers we found in the travel sector cost at least 10p

per minute to call from a landline, but could be substantially more from a mobile phone. 0844 and 0871 numbers are not included as standard in inclusive call packages from landlines or mobiles. The Which? Costly Calls campaign is calling for: · The Government to extend the CRD ban to the travel industry as soon as possible. · The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) to clarify existing rules to stop financial services companies from using costly numbers on complaints lines, and change the rules so this also covers customer helplines. · Public bodies to lead by example and ban costly numbers across the board in a consistent way, overseen by the Government.

S-Class is a cut above! By Jav MERCEDES have cracked it again with their new version of the S-Class limo, which has always been the epitome of luxury.

And their 2014 incarnation takes all the elements that matter technology, luxury and comfort - to an even higher plain. While the S350 BlueTEC may not offer the sportiest drive in its class, there’s always the mighty S63 AMG version if that’s what you’re after. The S-Class reeks of luxury, and the saloon is also a showcase for the brand’s engineering excellence. But considering how good the old car was, this new model has such a lot to live up to. For starters, it needs to offer pioneering tech, unprecedented luxury and unrivalled comfort. Indeed, the stand-out feature of the previous

S-Class was its classleading ride. But never fear because this model responds brilliantly - the bumpier the road, the smoother the ride. It really does make you appreciate the cosseting ride and cushioning, adjustable air-suspension. In fact, even in its stiffest setting, the S-Class is still more comfortable than any so-called rival. Even better, the S500 sets up the suspension

based on the car’s readings of the road ahead. There are also more gadgets than in the old S-Class, such as dual, 12-inch TFT screens in the dash. There’s not a single filament light bulb, which highlights these futuristic credentials. In addition, standard kit includes COMAND sat-nav and a mobile Internet hotspot. But it’s the options which really impress

most. Go for Distronic Plus with Steer Assist and Stop & Go Pilot, and the S-Class can automatically follow the car in front in a jam and steer to keep you in-lane on the motorway. Technically the car could drive itself, but for legal reasons it won’t. Don’t try taking your hands off the wheel because the system disengages. The long-wheelbase S350 BlueTEC L also

had night vision, which uses thermal imaging to spot pedestrians in the dark and highlights them on the screen. Incredibly, the car will automatically flash its lights as a warning if it thinks the pedestrian is in danger. Meanwhile, the rear seats have five combinations. The range-topping set-up can recline to 43.5 degrees, which is more than on any other production car. And the

seat behind the front passenger has a leg rest, allowing you to stretch out. Oh, and it would be so easy to nod off in the back of the S-Class, thanks to the impeccable sound insulation which keeps the cabin whisper-quiet at motorway speeds. The effortless 3.0-litre V6 diesel also helps, along with the smooth changes from the sevenspeed auto. Progress is deceptively swift: 0-62mph takes less than seven seconds and it remains unflustered. The S-Class is more than comfortable on the motorway, and it handles well for a big car. The rear-drive chassis provides plenty of grip in corners, while the steering is accurate and nicely weighted. When it comes to luxury limos, the new SClass stands way above its rivals. The top speed of 155mph and a healthy return of 50.4mpg simply adds to the magnificent package. And if you’ve been lucky enough to have enjoyed a nice little tickle on the brand-new, two-quid-a-time Lottery, then the £65,650 asking price is a mere drop in the Atlantic.

Seoul to Soul such sweet music! THE second-generation Kia Soul, coming our way in six months, is style-oriented and quirky, designed to run alongside the company’s more conventional Cee’d range.

Typical of the South Korean car-maker, based in Seoul, this model is an improvement on its predecessor in most ways. Not only is it more comfortable and refined, but it’s also a bit more composed. It’s not your usual, entertaining, family hatch like the Ford Focus, yet the spacious, highquality interior elevates the Soul into a class in which it could never compete previously.

The practical, Soul crossover has been a big hit in America, but can the new version extend its appeal to Europe? We’ll know in six months, that’s for sure. The boxy dimensions remain, yet the new version which shares a platform with the recently-

11th October - 17th October 2013

revised Cee’d, is marginally larger, thanks to a 20mm longer wheelbase and a 15mm increase in width. The biggest changes to the styling come at the back, where big taillamps wrap around a restyled bootlid. And buyers can spice up their

Soul with a new SUV Styling Pack, which adds black accents to the roof, wheel-arches and bumpers. It’s a great way to cash in on the trend for compact SUVs, without actually building one, even though there’s no four-wheel- drive option

available. Soul models bound for UK buyers in the Spring, will, typically, be powered by a 1.6-litre turbo-diesel engine with a six-speed manual or a six-speed automatic gearbox. A 1.6-litre direct-injection petrol will also be offered in the British line-up. The most appreciable Soul changes come inside, where the outgoing Soul’s layout has been thoroughly improved, with a new design and better materials. Despite its boxy exterior, the Soul’s cabin takes on a rounded theme which, say Kia, was inspired by “droplets falling into a pond”. Gloss inserts, brushed metal details and premium-looking dials have made a world of difference to a cabin that previously looked cheap

compared to rivals. Plus, the more car-like dash is now available with an optional Android touchscreen infotainment and navigation system, which adds to the premium, hi-tech feel. There’s marginally more space inside, too, with rear legroom boosted by that 20mm increase to the wheelbase, and a more usable 354-litre boot. Kia have worked hard on visibility as well, so even though the C-pillars are actually chunkier than before, the new car has better vision. UK specs are not yet confirmed, but the highstandard kit list and value for money seen on Kia’s other products will make the Soul appealing, especially to those looking for a quirky, better-value alternative to the Cee’d.

The boys are back in town By Roscoe

Recreativo 2 CD Tenerife 1 R E C R E AT I VO coach Sergi Berjuan hit the nail on the head after Sunday’s disappointing outcome for Tenerife.

“We were lucky,” he said. “If Tenerife play like that every week, they will be fine. With just a couple of tweaks, they will be safe. Very safe.” Or as one Spanish paper put it: “Sometimes, the best team doesn’t win.” The plane taking Tenerife home would have been very quiet, just hours after they had lost against the league leaders. This was the best Tenerife had played all season and, bearing in mind nobody expected them to return with any point, they at least came home with an armful of positives. The record will show Montoro gave the hosts the lead, Ayoze equalised, only for Arana to win the match 60 seconds later.

Position

But boy, doesn’t that lie! Tenerife, dare I use the B word, battered Recreativo. I lost count how many one-on-ones they had, how many excellent chances, how many halfchances - and how easily they carved a way through a miserly defence. This was the second straight match that coach Alvaro Cervera Points

had gone 4-4-2, and it’s clear that Ayoze will now be the key to success. Tenerife have stumbled across a formation that is unique in this league. All they need to do now is take their chances and stay focused at the back. Something Cervera admits didn’t happen on Sunday: “I’m delighted with the way we played and we should have won,” he said. “But we

It was sloppy.” Tenerife’s cause wasn’t helped by another clown referee. Lesma Lopez joined the hall of shame as he sent off Ricardo for the softest of soft “tackles”. Yesterday (Thursday), CDT successfully appealed the red and the suspension, but that didn’t help them in the last 15 minutes at Recreativo. This Sunday, Tenerife will need to keep their form going, but they face one of the league’s big guns - and the return of two favourite sons. Mallorca are in town, kick-off 5pm, and that means Jose Luis Oltra and Alejandro Alfaro are back. They will both given heroes’ welcomes after playing such a large part in the promotion to La Liga a few seasons ago. Both men have spoken of their love for the club, Oltra in particular. And there is no doubt he will manage again at the Heliodoro one day. He said as much in a press conference this week, pointing out: “I have had this match marked in red on my calendar since the fixtures came out. This match will be special, different and, hopefully, very beautiful. I’m fully aware that I will not win, whatever happens. I want the very best for both teams, but it is still a football match.” We know what he is trying to say. If Mallorca score or win, he will not celebrate, in the same way a former player wouldn’t. But Oltra NEEDS a win. His side

were chinned by Zaragoza last week and, despite a good run after a sticky start, he is under pressure. “It’s never easy at a club like this,” he said. ”It takes time to readjust to a new division, and the players are finding it difficult. “But we are getting there, and I know what is needed to get the job done. Which I will.” Oltra did the same with Deportivo La Coruna two seasons ago, taking them back up the season after being relegated from La Liga. His love for Tenerife remains strong: “I had three amazing years here, on and off the pitch,” he added. “I try to get here as much as I can, and I know the love I have with the supporters goes both ways. “They have always been so supportive. I always watch their games when I can, and I know they will do well this season. “They were so unlucky against Recreativo, and they have a great coach. Great fans as well, and that will be a massive help for the club.” Oltra brings back one of his former strikers - a player who transformed from boy to man in two seasons in Santa Cruz. When Alajandro Alfaro arrived from Sevilla on loan, he was seen as a real talent. Seville wanted to toughen him up, and they were not disappointed. He forged a fine partnership with the legendary Nino and bagged 20 goals in 42 games, Nino got even more, as they terrorised defences. The following season, he stayed as Tenerife battled bravely against relegation, and Alfaro enjoyed every minute. “I had an amazing time

in Tenerife, and I will always be grateful for my time here,” he said. “I had two wonderful years and so many memories. “I particularly remember the derby game with Las Palmas. The atmosphere was just … just … and to score the winning goal on my birthday … weel! It was something that will stay with me all my life. “I grew so much as a person while I was here. When I returned to Sevilla I was different. My footballing career started at Tenerife and I’m sure one day I will be back. I would like that.” Alfaro didn’t exactly pull up trees when he returned to his parent club, and he was not the only player to struggle as the star players were sold off, while Sevilla tried to regroup. He would score only twice in a tough year, and was sold to Mallorca in 2012 for just £500,000. Injuries marred his first season, in which he again netted just two goals. And while he notched a respectable six goals last season, the team never looked like avoiding the drop. This season has seen his form improve, although he is yet to hit the back of the net. What price that changes on Sunday? “That would be great, obviously, but also strange” he said in a press conference this week. “I’m so pleased to be playing again with Oltra as he gave me such a chance when I was a boy. “We are confident of winning, and I cannot wait to say hello to the fans. “They were brilliant when I was there, and I really hope everything goes well for all of us this season.”

Team Handicap drama!

THE John Lowe Team Handicap competition has a reputation for throwing up some cracking matches.

And last Friday’s allPremier League encounter between Phoenix Bar and The Pub was certainly in that category. An increase in the handicap for this

season, to 15 points per place, means there are some extremely high figures for the big boys. The match kicked off with Phoenix on 981 and The Pub on 966, and the visitors put on a fine display in the early exchanges, going into a commanding 3-1 lead. Knowing they had to win the three remaining rubbers, the Phoenix boys looked down

and out. But Mitch beat Calvo, followed by London and Happy Harry taking the first doubles (just!). The comeback was complete as Mitch and Tim beat Sam and Pete for a dramatic win. Great stuff, and respect to The Pub lads, who gave it their all. The other three ties were local derbies, the closest of those at Tenerife Sun (666) as they

welcomed Ourplace Playgirls (501). The neighbourly welcome quickly disappeared, though, and Tenerife Sun made light work of the 165-point handicap, running out 6-1 winners. The Playgirls’ solitary point came via Nuala’s singles win. Back in Los Abrigos, La Caña Lancers (621) entertained Emerald Shamrocks (651) and

another close encounter ended with a 4-3 victory for the Lancers. Finally, Emerald Lounge hosted and enjoyed a nice friendly match with nearby Scruffy Macs. Despite giving it a real good go, the seven- point deficit was too much for the visitors, and Shamrocks cruised to a 7-0 success. Draw for the firstround proper will be

Katie tracks Games spot

SCOTTISH cycling’s National Track Championships are being staged at the weekend, with the winners in line for a place in the national 2014 Commonwealth Games team.

It takes place at the Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome in Glasgow, which is already a sell-out for next summer’s Games’ events. The country’s top prospects recently competed in British Cycling’s National Track Championships in Manchester, with mixed results. Among the successes, Katie Archibald - in her home city - will be looking to follow the bronze medal she won in Manchester in the individual pursuit. But she will have to wait until the end of the month because the women’s individual pursuit takes place on Sunday, 27th October. Before then, however, she will represent Team GB, along with Elinor Barker, Dani King, Joanna Rowsell and Laura Trott, at the European Track Championships in Holland.

La Caña crash back to earth IT has been a disappointing fortnight for La Caña A in Division One of the Direct Telecom Pool League.

Last week they lost their unbeaten record, and on Tuesday they went double-bubble as they were defeated at leaders Tenerife Hammers A. The champions were always in control, even though the frames were close. In fact, had Hammers A been sharper on the black, the scoreline would have been larger. The win capped a brilliant year for the Hammers lads, who have gone a whole 12 months unbeaten in the league. La Caña A must now lick their wounds and get back to winning ways if they are to maintain their title charge. And they could have been given an easier task because on Tuesday, they host Phoenix Knights in a Los Abrigos derby. The Knights warmed up with an up-anddown draw with table partners Phoenix Potters. The “Steak Bowl” was another classic with the Knights

always ahead and the Potters fighting back: 3-1 became 3-3. 6-4 was soon 6-6. They always seem to have tight matches. Tuesday actually produced nothing but close affairs as two other top-flight matches finished level. In Los Cristianos, Dreamers A finally found some form as they took a point off of Gaffers A. Ashley produced a fine clearance, but, try as they may, they couldn’t shake off the hosts. Maybe it was the autumnal feel, or the call-up for bossman Rob. Either way, they will feel their season is finally underway. Meanwhile, in Silencio, Exiles A are still trying to work out how they didn’t beat Tenerife Hammers C. They were 5-1 up before the eel-munchers woke up. Sean and Tony did the damage and then, for the second time in a week, Ken won the final frame to give Hammers C a famous draw. Elsewhere, Terrace Bar A are now three unbeaten. They produced a mini upset by accounting for a Treehouse A side who were 3-1 early doors. The Suicide Squad found some strength

Sport In Brief England on the brink

ENGLAND footballers face a World Cup make-or-break few days when they tackle Montenegro tonight (Friday) and Poland on Tuesday in vital qualifiers at Wembley. They can secure a place in next year’s Brazil finals by winning both matches, and manager Roy Hodgson says: “We don’t even need to debate how important these games are to us. “But I am very hopeful and confident that this squad of players will be the ones who take us there.” Manchester United’s Wayne Rooney and Daniel Sturridge (Liverpool) are likely to start up front, and Hodgson adds: I was excited before the last two games; I was watching Sturridge and Rooney and thought they were in great form.”

Aussie skipper out of tour

AUSTRALIA captain Michael Clarke has been ruled out of the their current tour of India and requires “extensive rehabilitation” ahead of next year’s return Ashes series Down Under. The 32-year-old, who has suffered chronic back pain for much of his career, will be replaced by Callum Ferguson for the one-day series and Twenty20 international against India.

Murray out of ATP finals

ANDY MURRAY has withdrawn from the season-ending ATP World Tour Finals at London’s O2 Arena as he continues his recovery from back surgery. The Wimbledon champion had a minor operation in September to correct a disc problem in his lower back. “I’m really disappointed not to be playing this year,” said the Scot. “I love playing in front of my home crowd - it’s a great atmosphere.” Murray withdrew from the French Open in May because of the injury, before recovering in time to become Britain’s first male Wimbledon singles’ champion since 1936. His defence of the US Open was ended in the quarter-finals, but he helped Great Britain beat Croatia in the Davis Cup before having surgery. Spain’s Rafael Nadal, the new world No1, has qualified for the event, featuring the world’s top eight singles players and doubles teams. Also through are Serb Novak Djokovic, his closest rival, and fellow-Spaniard David Ferrer. Five other places are still available.

Banned Lee’s appeal

STEPHEN LEE, snooker’s former world No5, has appealed against his 12-year ban for match-fixing on seven occasions. The 38-year-old, of Trowbridge, Wiltshire, is fighting the sanction, findings and the £40,000 costs after a tribunal hearing. The sport’s governing body said it was “the worst case of corruption” they had ever seen. But Lee insists he is “totally innocent”.

Sir Chris gets ball rolling for Queen’s Baton Relay RETIRED cyclist Sir Chris Hoy, the six-time Olympic Gold and double Commonwealth Gold medallist, was headline news again on Wednesday.

The golden Scot took part in the Queen’s Baton Relay, heralding next year’s Commonwealth Games in Glasgow. It was launched at Buckingham Palace, after being escorted there by Sir Chris, accompanied by the royal pipers. The baton, which contains the Queen’s handwritten message to the Commonwealth, will visit all 70 competing nations and territories over the next 288 days. It travelled to Scotland yesterday before heading to India today (Friday) for its first international stopover. The baton’s incredible journey will end at the Commonwealth Games’ opening ceremony, on 23rd July, when Her Majesty will read the message inside. During the launch ceremony Prince Imran of Malaysia, President of the Commonwealth Games Federation, said the relay had power and meaning. He added: “The relay unites two billion citizens of the Commonwealth in a celebration of sport, diversity and peace. It will also bring the 70 nations and territories of the Commonwealth together. “Every time the baton is passed, it will cement the Commonwealth friendship and reinforce the ways in which we are connected.” Lord Smith of Kelvin, chairman of games organiser Glasgow 2014, said: “The spirit of friendship displayed as the baton is passed from hand to hand reflects the warm welcome that nations and territories of the Commonwealth can expect when they come to Glasgow and to Scotland next summer. “This is a historic moment for Glasgow 2014. We will treasure it and we look forward

to following closely the Queen’s baton relay on its momentous journey.” Following the speeches, the Queen placed the hand-written scroll, containing her message to the Commonwealth, inside the baton. It was then sealed for its journey of more than 190,000km through Commonwealth territories in Asia, Oceania, Africa, North and South America and the Caribbean. The first baton bearer was Alan Wells, the Scottish sprinter who won gold in the men’s 100m at the 1980 Moscow Olympics. “As the final runner of the Queen’s Baton Relay (QBR) at the last Commonwealth Games on Scottish soil - in Edinburgh in 1986 - the baton and what it symbolises is incredibly special for me.

“It is a real honour for me to now be named as the first batonbearer for the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games.” Wells handed the baton on to Scottish swimmer Caitlin McLatchey, who won two gold medals at the 2006 Melbourne Commonwealth Games. A short relay then took place up and down The Mall involving Scottish athletes Cara Kennedy (artistic gymnast), Morgan McKinnon (triple jump) and Ruairi Kirkwood (swimming). Others taking part included Izzy Conway, a volunteer at the Games, Aamir Meymood, the 13-year-old scshoolboy who designed the Glasgow 2014 tartan, Games ambassador Julie McIlroy and 12-yearold Beth Gilmour,, who will be accompanied by Games mascot Clyde,

whom she designed. During its international journey, the baton will spend an average of one to four days in each nation, with seven days in Wales, two weeks in England and 40 days in Scotland. The baton has a lattice design, made from layers of titanium fused together by laser, which means the message is visible. Glasgow 2014 will be the 20th Commonwealth Games, featuring 17 sports in 11 days of competition, with 261 medal events. The first Queen’s Baton Relay was staged for the 1958 Commonwealth Games in Cardiff, and it has been the curtain-raiser to the Games ever since. But until 1998, the relay travelled through England and the host nation only.
