CHRISTMAS & NEW YEAR

COSTUME SORTED YET?

Christmas and New Year are great times for traditions. Chestnuts roasting on an open fire. Grandad falling asleep by the fire after dinner. First footing with a big old lump of coal. And of course fancy dress. Not so long ago it would have been Santas as far as the eye could see, with just a few Rudolphs and a snowman or two thrown in for good measure but nowadays the rule book has been thrown out and you can wear pretty much what you please. So don’t waste any time! Get yourself down to Twinkles and sort out your perfect costume and let’s get the party started!


In The Know Your indispensable guide to what’s going on where you live Nearly 200 young people will be taking part in lantern parades in Immingham and Grimsby in November and December to celebrate the story of the Pilgrim Families and their journey to the New World in 1620. Parades take place in Grimsby on November 23rd and in Immingham on December 8th. You can find more details at Facebook: @discovernortheast lincolnshire

THEATRE

FALLING IN LOVE WITH LOVE ITSELF The first production of the Caxton’s 75th anniversary year is The Thrill Of Love, a dramatisation of the life of Ruth Ellis, the last woman to be hanged for murder in the United Kingdom. The play tells the story of Ellis’s tempestuous and often violent relationship with her lover, David Blakely, and the incidents which led up to her shooting him in the street outside the Magdala public house in Hampstead. It also features Detective Jack Gale who follows the case from the beginning, hoping to piece together her motive and, more importantly, whom she might be protecting.

It’s packed with carvings and jewellery from all over the continent of Africa and especially from the Kyenjojo district of Western Uganda which is where their partner charity, Age Care Development Uganda (www.agecareug.org), has its main operations, helping the elderly and the young in this war ravaged part of the world. There’s so much to choose from, and all at terrific prices, so with Christmas coming why not pay them as visit at the Ice House for lots of great gift ideas that help to care for two communities!

A FITTING TRIBUTE TO THOSE WHO HAVE HELPED MAKE GRIMSBY ‘GREAT’ The new Cartergate Underpass mural is unveiled to the public

A

rtists, councillors and representatives of many of the area’s most illustrious names gathered in Top Town to celebrate the official unveiling of the new Cartergate underpass mural. It’s the work of Creative Start volunteers led by founder and organiser Sam Delaney. Many of those involved have never participated in an arts project before and some took part as an element of a programme of abstinence therapy. The design features famous faces from the area including motorcyclist Freddie Frith, Channel swimmer Brenda Fisher, top tennis player Shirley Brasher, motorcycle racer Guy Martin, dancers Kevin and Joanne Clifton, actor Sir John Hurt and players from Grimsby Town FC. There are also street scenes from the Top Town area including the Minster and 1940s Chantry Lane. The artwork certainly makes a huge difference to what has been, in the past, a somewhat neglected part of the town and it’s yet another step along the road to the renewal of the Cartergate area. If you’re not a regular user we’d certainly recommend taking a visit to admire the mural, especially while there are still pieces from the recent Urban Arts Festival to enjoy on the walls of St James House.

surprise - so it’s time for our annual reminder to get your car checked out - either by yourself or by a professional (see page right for our favourites). And if the weather turns nasty and you’ve got no choice but to drive? Well there are some basic precautions you can take that will help to keep you as safe as possible. Check your lights, mirrors and windows are completely clear before you set off. Visibility is crucial. Top your screen wash up and use a proper additive. Check the latest traffic and travel information before setting off on long journeys to help avoid getting stranded in freezing conditions. Stock up for emergencies and long delays in cold weather. Prepare a kit with basic items such as coats, blankets, water, food, atlas or satnav and a torch. Also remember to keep a fully-charged mobile phone and in-car charger to report breakdowns and emergencies if necessary. Wear comfortable, dry shoes for driving. Cumbersome, snow covered boots will slip on the pedals. Check your tyres for adequate tread

and correct pressures. Ensure that your radiator has the right anti freeze levels. Check your manual to find out whether you’re in need of a top up. Keep at least a quarter of a tank of fuel at all times to avoid running out if caught in long delays in bad weather. Use an ice scraper and/or de-icer spray to clear a frozen windscreen rather than using hot water, which

can crack the windscreen. Use the blowers and air conditioning to clear condensation on the inside. When driving in snow, use a high gear to avoid wheel spin. If stuck, keep the wheels straight and move forwards and backwards gently to get traction. Take care, stay warm and just try to remember that it’s only for six months or so.
