Legendary Agatha Christie whodunit to visit Hanley!!

FREE

Thomas Howes ('Downton Abbey', 'The History Boys' Tour) as Detective Sergeant Trotter, Karl Howman ('Brush Strokes') as Mr. Paravicini, Bruno Langley ('Coronation Street', 'Doctor Who') as Giles Ralston, Graham Seed (bestknown as the doomed Nigel AUTHOR, Pargetter in Agatha Christie. 'The Archers' on BBC Radio 4 and 'Yes, Prime Minister' UK Tour) as Major Metcalf and Jemma ('Family Affairs', 'Eastenders') as Mollie Ralston.

THE play lauded as "the cleverest murder-mystery of British theatre" by The Telegraph is coming to Hanley's Regent Theatre in 2013! Yes, Agatha Christie's legendary, recordbreaking whodunit, 'The Mousetrap', is celebrating its 60th anniversary by going on tour for the very first time. In her own, inimitable style, Dame Agatha Christie has created an atmosphere of shuddering suspense and a brilliantly intricate plot, in which murder lurks around every corner at Monkswell Manor.

Jan Waters, currently playing Mrs. Boyle in the West End, will join the tour in the same role, and Clare Wilkie ('Eastenders') will play Miss Casewell.

The scene is set, when a group of people, gathered in a corner house cut off by snow, discover - to their horror - that there is a murderer in their midst!

The original West End cast included Richard Attenborough as Det. Sgt. Trotter and his wife, Sheila Sim, as Mollie Ralston.

Famous around the world as being the longest-running show of any kind in the history of British theatre (with about 25,000 performances to-date), 'The Mousetrap' began its run in London's West End at The New Ambassadors Theatre on November 25th, 1952, The star cast comprises Steven France GRAHAM Seed continuing there until Saturday, March (of 'The Archers' fame). ('Eastenders', 'The Bill') as Christopher Wren, 23rd, 1974, when it immediately transferred to St. Martin's Theatre next door, where CCTV IN ALL CARS • RING BACK • CALLER ID it re-opened on Monday, Ask About Chip & Pin Payment March All Drivers CRB Checked 25th, thus THOMAS Howes maintaining Pre Pay Loyalty Discount Card (better-known as 2nd footman, its 'initial William, in 'Downton Abbey'). 24hr Service, run' status. Who can it be? One by one, the suspicious characters reveal their sordid pasts until, at the last, nerve-shredding moment, the killer's identity and motive are finally revealed.

Are you a Wise Owl or a Head-Burying Ostrich when it comes to that d-word? THIS month, we discuss the many complexities which can arise from NOT making a Will. WHAT MOST PEOPLE THINK OR HOPE! IF you die without a Will, all your money and possessions (your Estate) will be distributed, according to strict legal rules and regulations. These rules are called the Laws of Intestacy. In many cases, the Intestacy Laws distribute an Estate in a way the deceased would not have wanted, sometimes with disastrous results. YOUR CIRCUMSTANCES will fall into one of the following categories: Married,

Cohabiting or Single.

of Inheritance can be complicated and can often involve relatives you have never even met!

MARRIED: In the event of the death of a married person, the Intestacy rules divide the Estate into shares, with a share going to the surviving husband or wife (the spouse). The amount a spouse can inherit is restricted to an amount set by the Government. THE POPULAR BELIEF that a spouse automatically inherits everything is simply not true. This is because your nearest bloodrelations (children, parents, brothers, sisters etc.) are also entitled to take a share under the Intestacy Rules inherit, with the rising values of Estates, the SPOUSE'S SHARE could be the smallest one. FACT: If you have not made a Will, even your life insurance policies will not be paid until probate has been granted, unless they are written into trust! (Probate will take many months, sometimes years, to be granted!). FACT: If your Children are orphaned and you have not appointed a guardian in a Will, then Social Services will decide who looks after them, including allocating them to Foster Parents). FACT: If there are no surviving members of your family, the whole Estate would go to the Crown (Government). COHABITING: Thousands of people live together without getting married. Unfortunately, most think that, after a few years together or if they have become a Common Law husband or wife and have same rights as a married person. Let there be no doubt about this. If you live with another person unmarried (including singlesex couples), with respect to finance and inheritance you are known as a Cohabitee and do not have the same rights as a married person. The general term, Common Law, means law-based judicial decisions and custom. SO, if you are Cohabitee, the information on single people is more appropriate to you. SINGLE: If a single person dies without a Will, the line

HERE WE GO... first, you children will inherit your whole Estate - if there are no surviving children, next in line are your grandchildren - if you have no grandchildren, then both your parents if both have died before you, then your brothers and/or nieces - if none, then your cousins (however far removed) and, if no cousins, everything goes to the Government... phew! IF you are single and without a Will, I can hear you are thinking: 'Well, that's OK, it will go to my children, anyway'). That may be partly true, but what is also true is that it will take months and, possibly, years to sort out your affairs (obtain Probate), and the Solicitors who sort this out will charge THOUSANDS OF POUNDS for their work. This is money that, for the sake of making your Will (£45), you could have left your Children! Even if you have no Children or close family, many people would want their Estate to go to CLOSE FRIENDS or a CHARITY, rather than the GOVERNMENT OR UNKNOWN RELATIONS.

Ask for Tony Heath Superb harmonies & zany comedy-routines!! CHART-TOPPING 1960s' band,The Ivy League, is making a welcome return to Stoke-on-Trent this year.

Dave and Jon ensured that The Ivy League continued through the '70s and beyond (with Perry's blessing) at a time when most bands of the '60s had faded away, and they have created one of the best cabaret acts in the country.

Since first tasting pop-chart success during the middle of the 'Swinging Sixties', it has gone from strength to strength, and readers can see why by booking tickets to see (and hear) the trio of musicians at Baddeley GreenWMC on Friday, December 16th! The line-up features Jon Brennan (bass guitar & vocals), Dave Buckley (drums & vocals) and Mike Brice (guitar & vocals). Perry Ford was the only original member to keep the band together through the late-'60s, which is when Dave joined to add his unique falsetto voice and keep the sound alive and original.

Having worked with The Ivy League on several occasions during the '60s and '70s, Mike Brice joined on a permanent basis in 1990. The showband's unique falsetto vocal sound, blended with superb harmonies, reproduces those hit-songs (including 'Tossing and Turning', 'Funny How Love Can Be' and 'Why I'm Crying'), with its repertoire also featuring some old and new favourites, all of which are brought together with some hysterical, zany comedyroutines.

They starred at all the top venues of the time (The Night Out, Birmingham; Talk of the Town, London; Batley and Wakefield Variety Clubs; and The Bailey Circuit), winning numerous awards, such as Club Mirror 'Comedy Vocal Group' of the year.

Tickets for the concert on Friday, December 16th, are priced at £7, and are sale behind the bar at least two months in advance (Baddeley Green WMC is not open in the daytime on Mondays, Tuesdays,Wednesdays and Thursdays).

Royal Royal British British Legion Legion Poppy Appeal 2012 Poppy Appeal 2012 The Poppy Appeal's origins

Poppy Appeal staff and volunteers arrange the annual collection each October/November.

REMEMBRANCE Sunday, November 11th, 2012, marks the 94th anniversary of the Armistice which ended World War I (1914-18).

It emanated from the formation of the British Legion (now the Royal British Legion), leading to practical and help and companionship to the ex-servicemen and women and their dependants.

Three years later, the very first Poppy Day was held in Britain in 1921, and, since then, it has proved an essential feature of the British way of life.

The Flanders and Picardy areas of Northern France saw some of the most concentrated and bloodiest fighting of 'The Great War' - there was complete devastation: buildings, roads, trees and natural life simply disappeared. Only one other living thing survived - the Poppy!

Flowering each year with the coming of warm weather, the Poppy brought life, hope, colour and reassurance to those still fighting. The first donations for artificial poppies were given in Britain on November 11th, 1921, raising £106,000 (an equivalent spendingpower of more than £3.1 million in today's terms), a huge sum for the time!

Stoke-on-Trent-based (but covering the entire county), Bloomin' Wonderful is a florists and venue-dressing service, offering excellent customer-service and value-for-money. Beautiful floristry is featured from the church to the reception venue, and its all-inclusive service takes it from the early-morning, exciting flowerdelivery (the bride's, plus any buttonholes or bouquets needed by the groom) onto the church

for delivery of flowers or placing of bows. Whilst this is all happening, the business's team is already at your reception venue with your chair-covers, centre-pieces, tablemirrors, diamantes, candles etc. - and the choice is yours!

The glassware range used in its floral designs as such striking wedding centrepieces (including Martini glasses, bubble bowls [small and large], hurricane lamps and lily vases) and candelabras can be hired as part of your wedding package, and BW will deliver, set up and take down for you, thanks to its total, no-hassle service. Or, if you're doing it yourself, you can simply hire what you need from Rebecca at a time convenient to you!

Bloomin' Wonderful can decorate your venue from top to toe, offering chair-covers, beautiful organza sashes, diamante buckles, a wide range of glassware, sashes and table-runners.

Clients are assured of a professional, confidential and flexible service at all times.
