More people than ever before are choosing organic – confirmed by recent research from England Marketing1 which revealed that 39 per cent of shoppers buy organic food on a weekly basis. Certified organic means food that has been produced to the very highest standards. It means fewer pesticides, no artificial additives or preservatives, always free range, higher standards of animal welfare and absolutely no GM (genetic modification). Now in its fifth year of continued growth and worth £2.09 billion, the organic sector has never been healthier. Soil Association Certification Business Development Director, Clare McDermott said: “The organic market grew a fantastic 7% last year and more and more people are looking for, buying and talking about organic. With hundreds of new and innovative products launched last year alone, the BOOMs are a fantastic opportunity to make some noise about organic

and help more people understand the benefits, alongside showcasing the range of amazing products and producers.” Forty Hall Vineyard is proud to be one of

the companies that are innovating and championing organics, and producing food as it should be. Jenny Patton, Forty Hall Vineyard volunteer said “We are trying to draw attention to the benefits of choosing organic, our volunteers enjoy working with nature - taking steps to boost the biodiversity of the land and our consumers enjoy the great tasting wine it produces. I always enjoy the surprised face of someone who samples our organic, London grown wine for the first time.”

Changing The Way We Bank On the 27th of June, Enfield commemorated 50 years of the first ever Automated Teller Machine (ATM) installed at Barclays Bank in the town. The first ATM was opened by the actor Reg Varney from ‘On The Buses’. This new innovative wonder worked by inserting a paper cheque, into the ATM, given to the person by the cashier that would then come back out with an amount up to £10. Enfield celebrated the 50 years of ATM with St Anne’s School choir singing at the bandstand in the market square and installing a golden ATM with a red carpet leading up to it. Carl Hynes, Head of Branch Innovation at Barclays, said ‘this is where it all began, 50 years ago and it has changed how we do our banking around the world. Enfield should be proud, not is it only the centre of England but it is the centre of the world’

“Enfield was chosen 50 years ago because it is diverse and the bank was suitable, high up windows to fit the ATM below and enough space on the inside to hold the safe” Around the world there are roughly 3 million ATMs, including one in Antarctica, with most being used every single day. Each ATM, on average, is used 800 times a month and on average each person uses an ATM 7.4 times a month.

Enfield, home of innovation Not only is Enfield famous for the ATM, the Enfield rifle was made at the Royal Small Arms, located in Enfield Lock where they also produced muskets, swords and bombs from 1816 till 1988. Enfield can also be credited for helping around the home and entertaining us. For those too busy to wash-up, the first massproduced dishwasher was manufactured at Hotpoint’s Enfield branch. And did you know, the first mass produced colour television was manufactured at Ferguson’s, now closed, Enfield Branch.

Local, Entertaining, Affordable Football Enfield Town FC is a heart-warming success for the Borough of Enfield and the local area to be proud of. At the start of last season, Enfield Town FC celebrated their 15th anniversary since becoming the first ever ‘supporter owned football club’ in the country, owned by the Enfield Supporters’ Trust in 2001. It has become the blueprint for many other supporterowned clubs including AFC Wimbledon and FC United of Manchester. Much has been written about the demise of the former Enfield FC. The fans became disenchanted with the running of the club, and the journey from Town’s formation to a return to the Borough at the Queen Elizabeth


Stadium in Donkey Lane with a team to be proud of, competing at the top end of the Bostik League Premier Division, three steps below the Football League. As an F.A. Charter Standard Community Club, Town continues to work within limited resources towards its vision of being an inclusive club for all with a football and social centre for its local community, and a range of teams playing at the highest sustainable levels possible. With a core of hard-working and dedicated volunteers the focus remains on making the club as successful as it can be in a sustainable way. Over the past three years, there has been a steady increase in home match attendances as the first team finished in 7th,

6th and 4th positions in the league under manager Bradley Quinton, with last season culminating in a play-off semi-final defeat at Dulwich Hamlet in front of over 2,500 people. New Season, New Management, New Players This coming season sees a new management team at the helm after Bradley Quinton returned to Braintree Town, the club where he made 500 appearances as a player. Our new manager, Andy Leese, is vastly experienced with over a decade under his belt in charge at Chesham United, following other spells in managerial hot-seats, most notably at Borehamwood, Cheshunt and Potters Bar. The club are delighted to welcome Andy and his Assistant Manager, former Premier League star Darren Purse, to complete a management team with a depth of experience, achievements, knowledge and contacts in football. They are already busy assembling a very competitive looking squad in great anticipation for the start of the new season. “Apart from being supporter-owned, I know the club is very community

EN MAGAZINE - issue 90 July/August 2017

orientated and I am very pleased to be part of that. I am delighted to have taken over the reins and relish the challenge of meeting the high expectations of supporters.” said Andy Leese Even if you don’t particularly consider yourself a football fan, on a visit down to the Queen Elizabeth Stadium you will find a great family atmosphere and splendid matchday facilities at the stadium, and you may well be pleasantly surprised enough to make a return visit before too long! Enfield Town’s website carries all the latest news and details of forthcoming matches: http://www. enfieldtownfootballclub. co.uk/ The club is operating an online fanfunding scheme which is vital for its future progress. We invite you to take a look at the choice of packages available to get involved in some way and support your local community club.

Raising Awareness of Internet Safety With young people spending more time online than ever before, it’s crucial they understand how to stay safe. Young people in Year Six at Pope Paul Catholic Primary School in Potters Bar, attended an e-safety workshop run by Herts Schools Partnership, funded by Hertsmere Borough Council together with the Police and Crime Commissioner. The workshop for 10 and 11-year-olds explored how young people use

the internet and gave an overview of the online risks, including cyber-bullying and grooming. During the session they received advice about how to spot the warning signs of grooming and what to do if they experience e-bullying. This included how to identify and avoid risk, and how to report concerns if they do encounter difficulties. Liz Heymoz, Headteacher of Pope Paul Catholic Primary School, said: “The internet is an amazing

place to learn and create, but there are risks. I believe that schools have an important role in teaching children to protect themselves in all kinds of situations, including online. “I was delighted with the workshop - it was completely age appropriate, whilst still being engaging and informative of the potential risks but most importantly, gave it essential information on how to stay e-safe.” Jacqui Mattholie, Assistant Partnership Development Officer, Hertsmere Schools Partnership, who ran the session, said: “The internet and social media plays an important and positive role particularly in youth culture where students connect, share ideas and discover new things; adversely we have also seen an increase in students who participate in behaviour putting themselves and friends at risk using social apps without social maturity. “Our risk aware sessions have been developed age appropriately to set the boundary and explore how to get the most from the internet safely providing practical tips and what to do when it goes wrong helping students to prepare

for secondary transition where more coming of age mistakes will be made. “We explore the types of information we share and our need for friends and followers, the importance of critical thinking and privacy settings, behaviour and conduct, our digital footprint and reputation, grooming, bullying and the psychological effects and clearly define the law.” There is a lot of great online support available. Think U Know provides resources, training and support to prevent the online abuse and exploitation of children and young people, brought together by the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre (CEOP). You can also visit Safer Internet UK, Childline or the NSPCC websites for great online resources and support for parents.

Days Out from the Lucas Museum of Narrative Art features props, models, costumes, and artwork from the original Star Wars films. This rich collection spans the original Star Wars canon, drawing from the classic (1977-1983) and prequel (1999-2005) trilogies, the animated series The Clone Wars, as well as a few artefacts from the recently released Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Fan favourites like Darth Vader, R2-D2, Chewbacca, Boba Fett, Yoda, and the Millennium Falcon – among many others – are sure to delight visitors of all generations. Visitors will develop a better understanding of what makes the characters of Star Wars who they are, and at the same time explore their own identity with one question: What forces shape you? Discover Your Identity in a Galaxy Far, Far Away For almost 40 years, audiences around the world have followed the adventures of Anakin and Luke Skywalker, cinema’s most famous father and son duo. Now, an exciting exhibition comes to our own galaxy with STAR WARS Identities, a redefined modern exhibition experience in which visitors will rediscover the unforgettable characters of Star Wars in a whole new way at The O2, London which will host the exhibition until 3 September 2017.Developed and produced by Montreal’s X3 Productions in collaboration with Lucasfilm Ltd., the exhibition makes use of an extensive archive collection from the Lucas Museum of Narrative Art to explore the sciences of identity through the characters of Star Wars. The vast and exclusive collection of some 200 objects

“This exhibition offers a fresh perspective on the beloved characters of Star Wars,” says Jacques-André Dupont, President and Executive Producer of X3 Productions. “We get a deeper understanding of their identities, and, at the same time, we get a deeper understanding of our own. The collection, the interactive components, and the scientific content work hand in hand here to create a seamless and exciting experience for our visitors. It’s a character-driven adventure into identity.”

An Interactive Quest

STAR WARS Identities will place the visitor at the center of the exhibition experience with an interactive identity quest that spans the duration of the visit. Closely interwoven with the collection and the educational content, this unique interactive experience will use technology to help visitors of all ages create their own personal and original Star Wars identity by incorporating elements of their own identity with fictional elements. Visitors will then leave with their own unique character inspired by the Star Wars universe and with a deeper understanding of the exhibition’s central theme.

A Team of Experts

In order to develop the exhibition’s scientific content, X3 Productions has collaborated with the Montréal Science Centre content experts to gather a team of specialists from a variety of scientific fields, including genetics, neuropsychology, health sciences, and psychology. Their knowledge and expertise have shaped the exhibition’s structure, and their input has been essential in developing its scientific content and in ensuring that its investigation into identity is up to date and firmly grounded in the sciences.

Days Out

Feeling a Bit Peckish! Presented by Randy’s Wing Bar, and sponsored by Frank’s RedHot, Europe’s biggest chicken wing show-down returns to London to provide the answer to that burning question - who really does the best wings? On 5th & 6th August at the Printworks, competitors from across the UK will work their culinary magic in a bid to win the coveted title of King of the Wing. Wing Fest will see 16 contestants battle it out in two fiercely contested categories in a bid to persuade wing lovers of their merit:

London’s Best Buffalo Wing

Described in the North American dictionary, from where this mighty morsel hales, as “Deep-fried wings coated in a spicy sauce.” Of course, to those in the know, this description simply doesn’t do this wonderful creation justice and the search for the best out there is fiercely contested across the world. Few know that Frank’s RedHot sauce is the secret ingredient in the original buffalo wing recipe, created way back in the 60s in Buffalo, USA and is now here in the UK.

London’s Best Wild Wing

This category is looking to explore and demonstrate the many exciting ways a chicken wing can be prepared and served in the broadest sense possible. In this category anything goes. Any flavour, any technique, any taste. Basically the rule is, there are no rules. The 18 culinary warriors battling it out in 2017 are a mixture of street food vendors, pop up legends, and restaurants including: Absurd Bird | Buffalo Joes | Butchies | Chicken George | Chicken Shack | Earl’s | Joe’s Southern Table & Bar | King Samosa | Le Bun | Mother Flipper | Randy’s Wing Bar | Spit & Roast | The Joint | Thunderbird | We Serve Humans | Wing Box | Wingmans | The Smoke Brothers

All wings are £1 and will be sold in individual joints (drums or flats) to allow voters to try as many wings as possible from each of the contestants. Ticket holders will decide the winners by voting via the Wing Fest app on their smart phones. The day will also see the return of Dr Sweetsmoke’s deadly Lava Wing Challenge, which causes carnage every year, and Frank’s RedHot will be hosting the notorious wing eating competition. Come hungry. There will be BBQ cooking demonstrations and live music throughout both days. For more information about the festival, you will find further details at www.wingfest.co.uk One for Adults Beer tasting is soon to become more popular than wine tasting across the UK as 2017 sees breweries across the country grow to over 1700 and beer production increasing by 16% year on year. The New World Trading company who offer beer tastings for their 80 different beers and ales reports a dramatic increase by 50% over the last year with thousands of drinkers wanting to become beer gurus across all its national pubs including The Botanist and The Trading House.   Kieran Hartley, beer guru for The New World Trading Company says: “In the last couple of years, you’ll have noticed that beer is becoming an increasingly serious subject. Whilst wine has taken all the glory as the connoisseur’s drink of choice. In recent years, however, this injustice towards beer has slowly unraveled and even the common drinker cannot ignore the huge change in how beer is talked about, served and enjoyed.”   Kieran continues, “Beer tastings are an increasingly popular choice. With a wide selection of beers, many

Days Out primitive styles of beers, sampling ales that were brewed before we had help from modern technology. You’ll then venture through the spice trade routes, and the geographical history of beer styles, finishing with the cutting edge modern beers that are pushing the boundaries of beer with science. The experience will also provide plenty of opportunities to sample some of the beers and ales from the extensive menu with over 80 to choose from.

outlets are now offering a variety of beer tasting events where people of any background can come and learn about beer as a crash course, or take an in-depth peek into the vast depths of the beer world.” Similar to wine tasting, Beer hops have different flavours depending on region, climate and variety. The popularity of beer tasting is due to the variety of food it can be paired with based on the sweet, sour, savoury and bitter flavours.    Spicy notes in food can be calmed by wheat beers, so if you can’t handle the heat, perhaps reach for an Erdinger or Hoegaarden the next time you have a Jalfrezi.   Beers with a big hop profile can actually increase our perception of spice, so if you are more of a daredevil, a bold IPA may be more suited to that spicy Mexican dish.   Some are less based on science, and work just because they have always worked. It is believed that stout and oysters were the first food and drink to be paired together, whilst cheese and beer is a classic combination.   Cheese and beer tasting combinations: ∙      Soft chevre goes well with the floral notes of a German Hefeweizen ∙      Cheddar goes well with the sweet malt and balanced hop bitterness of a classic Best Bitter ∙      An Aged Gouda needs dark flavours with a hint of sweetness such as a dark Doppelbock ∙      Blue cheese is usually very strong, and needs something equally as strong to stand up to it such as a bold IPA ∙      Wensleydale, a soft creamy cheese will pair well with a sour ale   The New World Trading Company beer tasting sessions are run by The Botanist Beer Guru where he will share The history of beer and take you on a thoughtprovoking journey back in time to some of the most

Keep Safe And Look Great In The Sun

Summer is here again and with the sun coming out people everywhere, whether at home or on holiday are stripping of their clothes to grab a few rays and get a suntan. But how are you going to keep yourself save from the harmful sunshine and keep locking your best.? EN Magazine brings you some advice from top professionals on keeping safe and looking great this summer. TAKING THE GUESSWORK OUT OF SUNSCREEN SHOPPING The shelves will be full of sun creams and lotions this summer – but which one should you buy? Does cut-price mean it won’t be effective? Are you simply paying for the brand name when you fork out for the expensive stuff? Dr Irshad Zaki, a Consultant Dermatologist at Spire Parkway Hospital in Solihull, looks at which sunscreens provide the best protection – and you don’t have to break

the bank to get the best! He says: “When choosing a sunscreen, make sure you check the UVA start rating as well as the SPF (sun protection factor). Ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun is transmitted in three forms UVA, UVB and UVC. “UVC radiation cannot penetrate the earth’s atmosphere and so does not reach our skin. Therefore, we only need to protect our skin from UVA and UVB. In general, UVA is the one associated with skin aging - which gives you wrinkles, leathery skin and brown spots, and UVB is the one that causes sunburn and skin cancer but there is some crossover between the two. When you buy sunscreen, it will be labelled with a SPF and a UVA star rating. The SPF is on a scale of 6 to 50+ with SPF 6 to 14 providing the least amount of protection against burning and skin cancer, and 50+ having the strongest protection from UVB. “The UVA star rating ranges from 0 to 5. The British Association of Dermatologists (www.BAD.org.uk) recommends using a sunscreen with at least SPF 30 and a UVA star rating of 4 to 5 as a good level of protection.” “If you are going to swim in the sun, it is also important that the sunscreen you use is labelled as water-resistant so it does not wash off easily. However, you will still need to reapply it after bathing to ensure you have adequate protection throughout the day. “You may have your own favourite or you may just opt for the cheapest one in your supermarket but the main thing to check is the protection value and not the price.”

EN MAGAZINE - 90 July/August 2017


Health KEEP YOUR SHIRT ON – HOW TO AVOID OVERHEATING THIS SUMMER Long sleeves if you please! That is the message being given out by dermatologists as the summer approaches and the numbers of people with skin cancer continues to increase. “High factor sun creams are all well and good but there are times when you really need to cover up – and that means putting a layer of clothing between you and the sunshine,” said Dr Joanna Gach, a Consultant Dermatologist at Spire Parkway Hospital in Solihull. “It is advice we always give to parents to protect their children but, at times, adults should also be doing the same thing. Even good sun cream loses its protection power after a while whereas a light, long-sleeved tee shirt and pair of cotton trousers will keep you cool and safe all day long. “I know everyone thinks they look ‘healthier’ with a tan but looks can be deceiving,” said Dr Gach. “Every year we put out the warnings but every year the skin cancer rates continue to rise.” Dr Gach’s warnings are supported by Dr Irshad Zaki, a consultant dermatologist who specialises in skin cancer treatment at Spire Parkway Hospital. “If you are out in the sun your skin is in danger and it doesn’t have to be a ‘scorcher’ for you to need protection,” he said. “People do tend to reach for the sun cream when there are clear blue skies but there is almost as much


danger when there is cloud cover. Clouds reduce the amount of ultraviolet A and B radiation that reaches the earth’s surface and our skin, but don’t stop the damaging rays. “ “They actually block more visible light than ultraviolet radiation,” he explained. Also, be careful or a breezy day which might make us feel cooler, but the ultraviolet radiation is still there. Government figures show that skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the UK and rates continue to rise. There are over 200,000 cases of skin cancer per year. Malignant melanoma, one of the most dangerous forms of skin cancer results in over 2500 deaths every year. “There is no harm in enjoying a bit of sun but It is always better to be safe than sorry. My advice would be that if you are outdoors in summer take care. Just because you can’t feel the burn doesn’t mean you aren’t burning!” Keeping your kids out of danger this summer Holidays in the sun can be a testing time for parents as they have to judge how long to let their children play out in the sun. Dr Joanna Gach is a Consultant Dermatologist at Spire Parkway Hospital in Solihull. Here she provides ten top tips on how to keep your children safe in the sun. 1: Children are better protected from the sun’s harmful rays by wearing long-sleeved clothes (trousers, long skirts, long-sleeved tops) made of closely woven material.

EN MAGAZINE - issue 90 July/August 2017

Health Natural fibres such as cotton are best, as the material breaths easily and keeps children cool. 2: Always make sure children wear a hat, preferably with a broad-brim to protect the ears and back of the neck as well. 3: Use sunscreen with Sun Protection Factor (SPF) of at least 30. The higher is the SPF of a sunscreen the longer the time before the skin suffers sunburn with sun exposure . 4: Plaster it on and keep topping it up! When sunscreens are tested in a controlled laboratory environment, they are applied very generously – to an extent where the skin is white because of the amount of the sunscreen used. When your child is playing in the sun some will rub off, some will be washed away by sweat and, of course, much will be lost if they do go in the water. Therefore, it is important to reapply sunscreen regularly to their skin. 5: Sunscreens should be reapplied to all sun exposed areas of skin every two or three hours and more frequently if children are swimming or playing in water. Ideally, even so-called water-resistant sun creams and lotion should be reapplied regularly.   6: Children’s skin is thinner and more delicate and therefore it can be penetrated by chemicals more easily. Sunscreens specifically designed for children are the best for your child’s skin. 7: Use long trunks and long-sleeved swimsuits to give them more protection in the water. Even with protective clothing, it is advisable to limit time in the sun to 30 minutes at a before taking them back in the shade. 8: Protect eyes against the sun - get your children (and yourself!) sunglasses with certified UV protection. 9: The sunlight is strongest between 11am and 3 pm so it is best to avoid playing or swimming in the direct sunlight between these times. As they say in Australia “Between eleven and three, hide under a tree!” 10: Consider playing in shaded areas or - do what the

Michaella Bolder

locals do - Siesta! A little mid-day nap would also help you feel refreshed throughout your holidays and keep you out of the sun during the hottest hours. LOOKING FANTASTIC Michaella Bolder STRIPPD lean protein ambassador - the facialist of choice for celebs including Elle Macpherson, Abbey Clancy, Tess Daly, Kelly Brook and Frankie Sandford shares her top tips for looking good in the summer months.   1.       Nourish One of the main reasons our skin glows in the summer is because of the increased Vitamin D. Supplements are a great way to give winter skin a boost - look out for supplements that contain a wider range of vitamins with Echinacea to get skin glowing. My favourite are STRIPPD GLOW capsules as they contain vitamin A to turn over skin cells and help rebuild skin function, Vitamin E to protect from pollution and copper to help stimulate collagen production. Take them daily throughout the colder months with a two week break every six months to reset the body.   2.       Exfoliate While it may seem counterintuitive to exfoliate your skin if you’re desperately clinging on to your summer tan, your skin will naturally exfoliate itself anyway. Getting in there early promotes a more even fade and ensures that topical moisturisers are penetrating deeper into the skin and not resting on a surface of dead skin cells. Exfoliate your entire body three or more times per week – body brushing is a great way to remove the dead skin cells and aid circulation.   3.       Change it up Just like your body, your skin also needs a winter wardrobe. In the colder months our skin needs the extra nourishment and protection that heavier creams offer so I’d recommend switching to a richer moisturiser (or using a 50p sized amount of your regular moisturiser) of a morning so your skin can feed off it throughout the day. Opt for butters (my favourite is Shea) over lotions as they tend to be water based and better suited for summer.     Don’t be afraid to layer products too - serums under moisturiser are incredibly effective at delivering all the essentials whilst your moisturiser acts as barrier to seal it all in. Adding a facial oil into your night time routine will also help to boost hydration levels.   4.       Massage Finally, deep tissue massage techniques are incredible for getting blood circulating, activating muscle tissue and relieving tension above the eyebrow. Get skin glowing yourself at home with these two facial massage techniques:   ·         Apply deep, firm pressure using your fingertips – working outwards from the centre to the temples, pressing firmly against the muscle fibres. Use both hands and work outwards eight times. Repeat this three times once a week. ·         Run your fingers up and down from the centre

An in salon treatment such as Vital Shot will put moisture and keratin back into the hair and if you tint your hair get that refreshed. Just think how amazing you will look tanned,and with great,refreshed hair.

Using a shampoo and conditioner that is infused with colour locking antioxidants and free from sulfates,parabens and sodium chloride such as Unite’s will keep your colour looking fresher for longer. If you are a blonde then Blonda shampoo is a must as this will keep your tone looking amazing. Weekender Clarifying shampoo will remove chlorine,salt and all the bad from your hair but not your colour. A must for all the family. The new range of 7 Seconds Shampoo and conditioner as well as a treatment masque work brilliantly with remoisturising your damaged locks. An oil such as U Luxury Argan Oil will give your hair that lasting moisture and instant shine whilst the natural thermal protector, makes it an amazing product for flat irons,curling and blow drying and reduces your drying time. Leave in conditioner such as Unites 7 Seconds is a summer essential. The rich creamy conditioner sprays into your hair and in 7 seconds you are tangle free. It nourishes and fortifies hair fibres with its protein complex and UV protector and locks in colour. Celeb fans of 7 Seconds include Michelle Keegan.

So in hot holiday weather how does she keep those tresses looking oh-so good?!  “I took this Unite hair product with me and used it throughout my honeymoon on my locks. Everytime I washed my hair I towel-dried it then sprayed the product on liberally - I also use it round the pool, as it stops your hair from drying out in the sun and sea salt, and it smells really good.”

Always go for a professional product as these have a far better quality of ingredient in them and help protect hair and colour.

Home Improvements

Summer, the Time for Central Heating! With the temperature rising over the summer months you are probably not using your central heating system at the moment. However, this could be the ideal time to have your heating boilers and radiators powerflushed to improve efficiency and heating when the temperature drops and you turn it back on. What Happens During a Power Flush?

Over a heating systems lifetime black iron oxide sludge and lime scale build up throughout the system, coating the insides of pipes and radiators and reducing the flow of hot water around your heating system. This reduced flow increases the workload on your boiler, which in turn increases your fuel bills. Power flushing is the process of removing this built up iron oxide and lime scale deposits from a central heating system, using a pressurised mix of water and chemicals. By removing these built up deposits with a power flush your heating system is restored to its optimum efficiency as hot water can circulate freely throughout your central heating system, reducing the workload on your boiler. Hugh Doyle at Associated Response told EN Magazine “There are some key things to look out for that will tell you if your heating system needs a powerflush these include;

Little or no hot water from taps & fittings

This occurs as the sludge and lime scale coats the inside of taps,pipes and heat exchangers, this reduces the amount of hot water able to exit the system through taps and other fittings.

Discoloured water when bleeding radiators

The appearance of black or brown water when bleeding water from your heating system is a sign of internal corrosion and suggests a build up of iron oxide sludge and other deposits is occurring.

Boiler runs loudly or cuts out regularly

If boiler noise has increased or your boiler cuts out on a regular basis this is often the result of the accumulation of deposits in the system, which could result in a costly repair or replacement if not dealt with.

Radiators have cold spots

This results from a build up of black sludge and lime scale inside the radiator, these cold spots stop your radiators from working at their peak efficiency, costing you more to heat your home. A power flush will remove these cold spots, ensuring your radiators heat evenly.

Radiators cold at the bottom

This results from a heavy build up of black iron oxide sludge in the radiator, it collects in the bottom of the radiator and can block the flow of water into and out of the radiator. A power flush will remove these heavy deposits and let water circulate freely through the whole radiator.

Radiators cold at the top

Radiators that are cold at the top are suffering from a build up of hydrogen gases, a result of internal system rusting. These should be bled to reduce the excess air and a power flush performed to help stop the rusting process.” “The summer months are an ideal time to carry out a powerflush on a central heating system as any sledge would have settled in your system as it is not being used,” continued Hugh. “it can help ensure your heating system works at optimum efficiency levels to prevent breakdown and avoid inconvenient and costly emergency visits during the winter when heating is critical. Stay ahead of the game by benefiting from the amazing special offers we have on heating system power flushes and services.” For more information on powerflusing your heating system contact your plumber or Associated Response on 020 8366 6420
