SAVE £ £ £ £ £’s, on all your Energy Bills, keep warm all year round, as well as Reducing the Carbon Footprint. 100% GRANTS available for Loft & Cavity Wall Insulation. Come to your Local Green Deal Registered & Approved Company.

ALL OUR WORK IS FULLY GUARANTEED FOR 25 YEARS Freephone: 0800 978 8738 | Email: | Website: NGIA, Caxton House, Caxton Road, Fulwood, Preston PR2 9ZB

GREEN DEAL IS NOW HERE!!! The Nations annual household bills have risen by £500 on average in the last five years, and prices are set to continue to rise. How can we deal with these continuing rising costs? The Government are committed to helping and encouraging us to shop around for better deals on energy tariffs, but switching suppliers will not guarantee substantial savings. We already make inroads to saving energy by using energy saving light bulbs and turning off appliances when not in use, which are all helpful, but in order to make larger savings we must consider making our properties more efficient. The UK has around 5 million homes without adequate Cavity Wall and Loft Insulation. Despite the energy saving incentives offered in recent years, over a third of UK homes are still without suitable insulation.


This is where the Green Deal comes in. Loft and Cavity Wall Insulation is the way forward. You could qualify for 100% grant if you satisfy the criteria. If you own your own home, or privately rented accommodation, in receipt of either: - Child Tax Credit (Household Income of £15,860) - Income related Employment & Support Allowance - Income based Job Seekers Allowance - Income Support - State Pension Credit - Working Tax Credit

After Installation, you will see a reduction in your energy bills, reduction of heat loss and an improved energy rating. An Energy Performance Assessment is completed for every property, which is mandatory if you were to rent or sell your property. Our team of trusted and highly skilled technicians are fully experienced to the highest accreditation and deliver an exceptional service. Every Cavity Wall Installation completed, is guaranteed for 25 years by CIGA (Cavity Wall Installation Guarantee Agency).

Winckley Square set for Economic Boost Winckley Square will be the latest area of Preston to see regeneration after Preston City Council received initial support for a Townscape Heritage Initiative (THI) bid to the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) for almost £1 million. Development funding of £41,664 has also been awarded to help Preston City Council and partners progress their plans to apply for a full grant at a later date. The scheme will look to deliver the following: The enhancement of townscape quality through the repair and refurbishment of key groups of buildings to support an attractive environment for commercial investment. Bring vacant floor space back into use to provide modern high quality commercial, office and leisure accommodation. Develop a partnership with property owners, businesses and the wider community to secure a sustainable future for the area. Works to the public realm to enhance the area’s historic streetscape. Training in heritage skills for contractors, property owners and others involved in the management of


the historic environment. Planners at Preston City Council will now work with partner organisations including Preston BID and Lancashire County Council to develop detailed plans to apply for a full grant later in the year. Welcoming the announcement, Councillor Peter Rankin, leader of Preston City Council, said: “This is fantastic news so soon after the announcement of improvements to Fishergate. Bringing existing buildings back into use will restore the historical feature of the square but also create new business opportunities and residential space” Simon Turner, director of the Winckley Square Community Interest Community, said: “It is a significant development in the ongoing revival of Winckley Square and the surrounding district. The timing is perfect as we work on our vision for the Winckley Square gardens.” Sara Hilton, Head of Heritage Lottery Fund North West, said: “Winckley Square is one of this country’s finest Georgian squares and is set to play an integral part in Preston City Council’s ambitious plans to regenerate the city centre. We’re delighted to have awarded initial support under our Townscape Heritage Initiative programme enabling the project to progress to the next stage of development.”

Tommy’s and Buggyfit in partnership once more for the baby race 2013

Registered charity no 1060508

Registration costs £14.50 per person and includes a free T-shirt, training plan, gift and goody bag brimming with treats from sponsors Cow & Gate and Forever Friends, which participants will receive after crossing the finish line. Before each run commences, a qualified Buggyfit instructor will lead an aerobic group warm-up.

April 2013 - Now in its fourth year The Baby Race, organised in partnership with leading national baby charity Tommy’s and pre and post-natal fitness experts Buggyfit, will be taking place at even more locations nationwide this Summer.

Tommy’s is a medical research charity, focusing on the causes and prevention of stillbirth, miscarriage, and premature birth. Tommy’s also provides free information for all parents-to-be on pregnancy health through guidebooks and Tommy’s Pregnancyline, a phone line that is staffed by midwives. Tommy’s hopes that each runner will raise at least £50 in sponsorship and those that raise more could win one of Tommy’s’ many prizes for top fundraisers, which include:

This is a chance for the whole family to get out and enjoy their local park in all its Summer glory, and to also help fund pioneering medical research into pregnancy complications, by taking part in an 8K race. Participants can choose to run or powerwalk this distance with, or without, their baby. All routes follow a designated path and are easy to navigate with a buggy.

• A term of swimming lessons from Water Babies - the UK’s leading swim school • A Trunki, the much loved ride-on suitcase • A scooter and balance bike from Great Little Trading Company • Five Gold memberships to the Start Nursery worth £237 each - giving you access to hundreds of activities and resources specially designed for babies and under 5s
