Four Lane Ends Garage, 286 Fleetwood Road South, Thornton-Cleveleys FY5 5EF

If you live in the Thornton area you will no doubt be familiar with the Adshead name. The family has been associated with the Four Lane Ends Garage in Thornton since 1966. Starting from humble beginnings more than four decades ago, the garage was opened by Don Adshead who ran his business with the simple, old fashioned values of good service and honesty. Over the years the family has endeavoured to maintain these core principles in their day to day dealings. At Adsheads Car and Van Solutions they still take the cup of tea and a chat approach, rather than hard sales pitching. They enjoy being an integral part of the community and are proud to still offer their services to customers who have known them since day one. Over the years this family business has evolved, and nowadays they specialise in supplying new and used cars to hybrid vehicles to heavy duty vans. Their experience has given them a wealth of knowledge as well as many helpful trusted trade contacts. Advertise Call 0800 970 7687

Many years spent working with cars and vans has afforded them an understanding of what has proved to be good value for money. This has influenced the selection of vehicles kept in stock, and they are able to source other makes and models for you too. Adsheads Car and Van Solutions supply vehicles to just about anyone and everyone! Whether you are a small business needing a company car or van, a first time buyer who needs something economical for day to day use, or perhaps a large company looking for a fully out sourced fleet management service, this team can help. Even if you’re unsure about what best suits your requirements, they are more than happy to offer unbiased advice based on their many years of working with cars and vans of all makes. Adsheads Car and Van Solutions aims to provide flexible car solutions for all customers. Part exchange deals are welcome, they’re happy to accept cars on a part exchange basis for a van, and there’s the option of leasing. If you are looking for financial advice they will be pleased to talk you through various options and find a mutually suitable plan.

FIRST DRIVE: PORSCHE CAYMAN In the world of motoring you can never have too many Porsches to choose from. The German firm has been particularly industrious of late, what with special edition 911s and expanding its Panamera line-up. Thankfully it’s also found time to bolster its Cayman range. For some this coupe is viewed as a mini 911, albeit one from a decade or two ago. Its more focused personality has seen it find favour with drivers seeking a back-to-basics experience but with all the electronic and comfort mod cons of today for good measure. The Cayman is also a good bit more affordable than a modern day 911, although the gap does narrow somewhat when you start ticking boxes for the various tempting options. However, to view the Cayman solely as a cheaper alternative to the great 911 is to miss the point - it’s also a fantastic car in its own right. This notion has been further reinforced by the introduction of an ‘R’ model. Following on logically from the not too shabby S model, you could say the R is aimed at the more demanding and appreciative 28

of the Porsche fan club. That might appear to be a very narrow section of buyers, but don’t forget that 911 GT3, GT3 RS and GT2 variants boast a considerable following despite their niche market positioning. Granted, the Cayman R isn’t supposed to be a mini-me GT3, but its specification more than hints at the potential for above average thrills - even in the context of an already quick donor car. What you get for you money - a price tag that’s closer to a 911 than you might first think - is something quite special. The Cayman R has lost a little bit of weight and gained a few choice improvements under the skin plus a few extra horsepower. The Cayman’s 3.4-litre flat-six motor now boasts 330 horsepower, which is 10 more than the S. It’s already a peach of an engine, and while it’s in its element being exercised to the maximum it’s also torquey enough to happily trickle through town at low revs. What makes the Cayman R that bit more special is the detailed suspension tweaks. A slightly lower ride height, camber changes fore and aft plus new anti roll bars, spring and damper modifications and lighter alloy wheels all add up to deliver a sublime experience for the discerning driver.

FOOD

Factor in the car’s already near-flawless steering and the ability to cover ground at a rapid pace while benefiting from the constant stream of feedback through the car’s helm and seat is hard to beat. And considering the cornering forces the car can generate, those seats are reassuringly snug and supportive. It’s true that the ride is a little firmer than a regular Cayman but we’re not talking GT3 RS firm here. Despite the lower ride height and various other changes, the Cayman R is still a car that can be confidently used every day. The fabric loop-style door pulls are a nod to the car’s weight saving programme, although the deleted audio and climate control units can easily be added to the car’s specification if you so wish. Elsewhere, the performance is pure Cayman S - and then some. The car’s standard-fit six-speed manual gearbox is a short-shifting device that’s hard to beat for accuracy and feel. Of course, there’s Porsche’s optional seven-speed PDK ‘box to consider, which adds an extra ratio to boost economy and refinement at motorway speeds. It’s also darn quick - quicker than you or I - and allows you to keep both hands on the wheel and utilise the chunky steering wheel paddle shifters. The Cayman R might be something of a specialist tool but there’s no questioning its abilities. Getting the job done, be it a B-road blast or spirited track day experience, is the name of the game, and this particular Cayman delivers thrills in spades. If you know what you’re doing the car will surprise and delight, but never scare, in equal measure. A finely tuned machine for everyday use, the Cayman R is hard to beat at any price. 32

Facts at a glance: Model: Porsche Cayman R, from £51,728 on the road or £53,731 for PDK gearbox variant. Engine: 3.4-litre petrol unit developing 330bhp. Transmission: 6-speed manual transmission as standard, driving the rear wheels. Performance: Maximum speed 175mph, 0-62mph 5.0 seconds. Economy: 29.1mpg. CO2 Rating: 228g/km.

Welcome to Barney’s I am happy to say my dogs are all happy interacting together, playing, and getting the best kind exercise. Mental stimulation is as important being active for dogs. Some dogs are very intelligent and must be challenged to stop them misbehaving. Letting them run as part of a pack so they can properly socialise can help prevent problems developing and can fix existing problems – both mental and physical. For example, Lucy used to nip people’s ankles and so wasn’t allowed off her lead. Now she is intensely happy in the pack and isn’t interested in anything other than her friends. Jake the border collie and his owners were nervous after he was attacked when he was younger, but now he has fun playing tug of war with the others and is back to his former self.

If you love your dog, call Barney’s for more than just walkies.

A PROPHETIC MESSAGE FROM THE HOLY BIBLE!

In the New Testament books of Matthew 24, Mark 13 & Luke 21 Jesus foretold events that would precede the end of this age. In Luke 21:26 He prophesied that world disasters would increase so much that mens hearts would faint from fear as they wait for what is coming on earth. But there is a hope for the future and beyond the grave because it is written in Psalm 103:2-3, Isaiah 53:4-5 & 1 Peter 2:24 that your sins can be forgiven and your diseases healed! Visit a Bible believing church where religion has been replaced with New Testament Christianity as recorded by Jesus in Mark 16:15-20 & John 14:12. Alternatively phone 01253 873375 or you can hear 60 second prerecorded message 01253 771274 that could change your eternal destiny!

Paul Galley

‘Diary of a local Councillor’ Paul Galley is a Councillor for Anchorsholme in Blackpool and each month he writes a weekly diary of what he has been up to. Sunday: Today I weeded and planted our flower tubs on Rockville Avenue. Whilst I was there it brought home to me just what a poor state the road surface is on Rockville Avenue. I’ve asked the council so many times for them to repair it and I’m constantly told the damage is cosmetic. There are so many lovely people who live on Rockville Avenue and they deserve the best so I’m pushing to look at some different options to get the road resurfaced. I won’t rest until we get it done. Monday: Tonight I attended the latest Sandhurst Area Forum. This month it was held at Bispham Methodist Church. The forum combines Anchorsholme, Bispham and Norbreck wards and it allows local people to ask questions about what is or isn’t happening in the local area. I met three brilliant local people who are picking up litter around Anchorsholme. They are lovely people and I’ve managed to get them some litter pickers to help them in the great work that they do. I’ve got a spare litter picker so if you would like to help a great cause and pick up any litter that you find in Anchorsholme and would like a litter picker please call me on 01253 826679 and I’ll drop it off to you. On the subject of litter, we received our newest public bin for Anchorsholme, it’s been installed on St Georges Avenue, that’s six now in the last twelve months (I’m very proud of those bins). Tuesday: In the afternoon I had a meeting about the Trim Trail that goes around the new Zip Wire in Anchorsholme Park. It’s in a very poor condition so our plan is to replace it with a new trim trail and hopefully get a couple of picnic tables if money allows so whilst children wait to go on the Zip Wire they can play on the trim trail.

Wednesday: Being in politics and running my own business means sometimes you have days where you hardly have chance to sit down and today was very much one of them. In the morning I called the bingo at the St Teresa’s Bingo Club. It was the first meeting since the Easter break and was a bit rusty but was made to feel welcome as I always am. In the afternoon I attended a tree planting ceremony in East Pines Park. Last year a lovely young family won a prize at one of our Eastpines Park fairs to name and plant a new tree in the park. After a delay, our tree, a Norwegian Maple arrived and the ceremony was well attended, with lots of children interested in what was going on. Then, in the evening I attended the official opening of the new zip wire in Anchorsholme Park. The Zip Wire was launched by someone who I really respect and admire for what she does for our community: Val Bradford. Val is the District Commissioner of the Guides and does so much. If anyone wants to join the Brownies or Guides, give Val a call on 07554244431 Thursday: This evening I attended a very good meeting at the Sevenoaks Tenants Association where we had a presentation about a service for the elderly run by the council called Care and Repair. It’s a service that offers household qualified support from changing a light bulb to other jobs that may need doing around the house. If your interested in the service and would like more information please call me on 01253 826679. Friday: In last month’s Diary I promised to update you about a First Aid project we are working on. Well, today I had a meeting with the North West Ambulance Service and we are very close to buying a Defibrillator and then establishing free first aid courses for the people of Anchorsholme. It’s a huge project that we are embarking on and I know everyone is very excited about what is planned. I don’t want to say too much until all the details have been confirmed but things are progressing very well behind the scenes so I’m really hopeful I can be in a position to give you some good news on this front very very soon.

Many thanks

Paul Galley Councillor for Anchorsholme
