Revive! provide a very convenient mobile car ON paintwork  repairDOORSTEP. service,  repairing YOUR those minor scuffs and scrapes that most AT A TIME TOthen. SUIT YOU. cars pick up now and   LIFETIME GUARANTEE. The Cheshire operation has been going for twenty years, and is run by David Baxendale, who manages a team of technicians, including my technician today, Kevin Johnson. Over the years they have seen their market grow from a mainly dealership-based service to include fleet companies and members of the public. For many people the visit to the bodyshop is not something they think about for minor damage - they just polish up the bumper scuff or panel scratch as best they can and put up with it.  

uk.com

The Revive! service is perfect for just this sort of situation - they come to you at home

LOYorWHEEL PAINT REPAIRS at work, at SCRAPES a time to suit you, and carry out aMINOR correctly matched repair (they use the

same paint systems as the top body shops) in 2-3 hours, while you have a coffee. This removes the hassle and inconvenience of having your car off the road for a few days, or driving a ‘courtesy’ car. In these times when everyone needs to look at their costs, maintaining your vehicle’s value is vital, and Revive! can help here, keeping the bodywork and alloys in top condition, preparing the vehicle for lease return to avoid charges, or for sale to get the best price.   The typical jobs are bumper scuffs, alloy wheel scrapes, and panel scratches, and they also offer an ‘all-over’ mechanical polish and touch up service. Their prices are very reasonable, and certainly a fraction of the cost of the bodyshop. I spoke to Kevin while he was repairing a very nice BMW, and he told me that this was a typical morning’s work for him: “My customer had scraped the bumper on the gatepost (a common ‘injury’). She called her local bodyshop, and was concerned about the price, so she also called us on the recommendation of a friend for whom we had done work. We explained what we do, and that the quality of the end product is high, and she asked us to do the work. It will take me maybe 2-3 hours, and my customer is inside the house having a coffee”. The end result looked great, and the customer was delighted. If your vehicle needs ‘Revive!’-ing’: Call Kevin on 07956 421 038, or email him at: kevin.johnson@revive-uk.com

Losing a loved one is upsetting enough, but the anxiety Photo supplied by The Chronicle of arranging the right funeral can be very stressful and choosing the right funeral director can make all the difference. New to Congleton is Three Shires Independent Funeral Services who will provide you with just the service you need for your loved one. They offer a caring, compassionate and straight forward service and can guide you through all the options and possibilities available, without you feeling under any pressure.

Being an independent company means they can offer you a completely bespoke service as there are no pre-set company guidelines to follow. That means your loved one will get just what you want for them.

That means no nasty surprises too. Three Shires also offer a simple, all inclusive cremation option priced at £1,950, with families welcome to add anything else they may wish at their own discretion. Everything will be explained simply & clearly, & burial options are also available.

Early Waterers Capture Summer Weeds! We all love relaxing in the garden in high Summer. But hot, dry weather can turn your grass yellow, while rain – on what looks like a lovely green lawn – can spur the growth of moss and weeds. So, give it an overhaul now to keep it healthy. Here are a few simple treatment tips from UK experts, lawn care specialists GreenThumb, who have 220 local branches around Britain. Vitally, water your lawn if there’s little or no rainfall. When needed, a regular watering early morning or late evening is best, so the moisture is likely to soak down to the roots. If you cannot water regularly, GreenThumb has pioneered the Oasis water-conserver. It encourages moisture to move between the grass roots and soil, so reducing watering and helping your lawn stay greener for longer. It can cut water consumption on mainly clay soils up to 23% and on sandy ones up to 50%. Imagine how much time you’ll save too! Mow Less If Drought Likely Try to mow  your lawn at least once a week, keeping the grass to about 2.5cm (1”) or, during dry spells, to 5cm (2”). Avoid cutting too short which can encourage weeds and moss; and let it grow longer if a stressful drought looks likely. GreenThumb provides an Early-Summer treatment. A controlled-release fertiliser feeds the grass to maintain growth and colour, while a selective herbicide targets broad-leaved weeds such as Dandelions. Your lawn is often your most-used but least cared-for garden feature. GreenThumb have a solution to make it lush, green, and weed-free for you to enjoy. Book a treatment now, by calling them on 0800 0111 222 or find them at www.greenthumb.co.uk .

Why Facelift Your Kitchen?

®

• Why replace your whole kitchen, when a makeover looks just as good? The

majority of people will believe that they need to replace their entire kitchen, which can be a very disruptive and long winded process. But why not consider a kitchen facelift for your new kitchen, as there are many benefits to refacing instead of replacing!

• A Dream Doors kitchen facelift will save you £1000s. But that’s not all you’ll save. What if we could give you something that can’t be bought? What if we could free up your time to do more of the things you love? That’s right – Dream Doors can save you time. Time to be with your family. Time doing what you love. Time to enjoy your new kitchen.

• A Dream Doors kitchen facelift will typically take just 1-2 days to install...

And that’s all. Replacement kitchen doors and new drawer fronts can be fitted in just one day. Add new worktops and a sink, then give us an extra day to have it professionally fitted (and to tidy up afterwards, of course!). That’s another thing - by choosing a Dream Doors kitchen makeover you won’t be spending time living in a building site, because Dream Doors will also save you from the dust and disruption that comes with a total kitchen refurbishment.

• There’s less stress and less mess with a kitchen facelift. You won’t have to empty all of your cupboards, and we won’t be pulling out old kitchen units creating unnecessary upheaval. Imagine that! No living with clutter for weeks on end. No need to trawl through takeaway menus every night. You’ll be up and running and enjoying time in your new kitchen before you know it.

• You will be amazed and delighted by the quality of the finished kitchen and wonder why you ever even considered ripping out the whole thing! Our before and after photos are testament to the quality of our work and dramatic transformation.

• By replacing your old kitchen unit doors with made-to-measure new ones and

incorporating new kitchen worktops and a sink, or an oven and a hob if you like, you will save at least half the money spent on a comparable new kitchen. But you’ll also benefit from a stress-free experience that gives you a new kitchen in a matter of days, not weeks!

Salmon en Croute Don’t be scared to attempt this complicated-sounding fish dish: it’s as easy as pie to put together and is sure to make an impression at a dinner party. For extra ease, ask your fishmonger to skin and fillet the salmon for you. Serves 4. INGREDIENTS 600g salmon fillet, skinned 500g ready-made puff pastry olive oil sea salt and freshly ground black pepper 2 tbsp tapenade small bunch of fresh basil 10 cherry tomatoes, halved 150g mozzarella cheese 1 egg, lightly whisked METHOD 1. Preheat the oven to 200C/400F/Gas Mark 6 2. Remove any remaining small bones from the fish fillet. 3. Roll out the pastry into a 30x40 cm rectangle and place in a lightly-floured baking tray. 4. Place the fish in the middle of the rectangle, season with the salt and pepper and drizzle some olive oil over the top. 5. Spread the tapenade on the top side of the fish and place the cherry tomatoes on top, round sides up. Tear the basil leaves and sprinkle over the top. 6. Shred the mozzarella and arrange on top of the tomatoes and basil. 7. Fold the pastry over the filling to make a parcel, and brush with the egg. 8. Bake in the middle of the oven for 30 minutes until the fish is cooked through and the pastry golden brown. Serve with a green salad. This article was downloaded from http://www.freefeatures.com.

(pic 2) 2. Trace around the large & small flower templates in whatever fabric you have chosen, in total I cut out 2 large flowers and 3 small ones, I also traced around a small jam jar lid for a circle shape. (pic 3) 3. Place the fabric flowers on top of each other with the smaller ones to the top.(pic 4) 4. Put a threaded needle through the centre of the flowers so they are all attached together, then start to gather the flowers at the front & back so you have a slight 3D effect, when you are happy stitch the button to the front which will disguise the sewing. (pic 5) 5.Lastly sew on your brooch pin to the back and you are ready to wear it! (pic 6) Enjoy Crafting.

Arley Garden Festival to welcome top designer

One of the UK’s most renowned garden designers will attend this year’s Arley Garden Festival.

Tom Stuart-Smith, who designed a garden at Windsor Castle to mark the Queen’s Golden Jubilee, will give a lecture at the festival, which is now in its 25th year.

Tom commented: “I am looking forward to being part of this event, which I am aware attracts both horticultural enthusiasts as well as less experienced gardeners.”

He added: “Arley is the perfect place for a festival of this kind because it is renowned in the horticultural world for its immaculate gardens and in particular the double herbaceous border.”

Tom has designed a number of gardens for the Chelsea Flower Show, with eight awarded gold medals and three winning ‘Best in Show’.

His work ranges from large gardens and parks that open to the public, to smaller private gardens.

He is responsible for the masterplan of the RHS’ new garden at Bridgewater in Salford, set to open in 2020.

Tom’s lecture at the Arley Garden Festival will focus on walled gardens and tickets are on sale now.

“I will be looking at examples as varied as an Islamic garden in the heart of Marrakech to the new Paradise garden at RHS Bridgewater and of course the proposals for a Memorial Garden soon to be built at Arley Hall,” he explained.

Every year around 5,000 garden enthusiasts – as well as those looking for a great family day out – visit the Arley Garden Festival.

Andrea’s AMMF Army – Fundraising update… My name is Andrea and I run these little directories that you are reading, as many of you know I was diagnosed with a very rare form of cancer in October 2015 called Cholangiocarcinoma (cancer of the bile duct). This cancer has one of the worst survival rates of all cancers. The AMMF is the UK’s only Cholangiocarcinoma Cancer Charity, dedicated to tackling this devastating cancer on all fronts: providing information and support, campaigning to raise awareness, and encouraging and supporting research. Over the past 2 1/2 years with the help of my friends, I have organized lots of fundraising events, from Charity Ladies Nights, climbing The Three Peaks, Firewalking, a Mad Hatter Cycle Tea Party, bag packing at Morrisons in Middlewich and the pinnacle of climbing Mount Kilimanjaro with my son and friends in February 2018! I have just successfully completed my latest fundraising mission, which was cycling over 450km from Vietnam – Cambodia! Myself, my 17- year old daughter Amelia and 16 other loyal friends, dubbed as Andreas AMMF Army flew out to Vietnam on the 16th February. We spent the next 8 days enduring temperatures above 35°C and 85% humidity. We cycled through contrasting landscapes, including banana plantations, coconut groves, rice paddy fields and skirting around some of the busier towns and cities, where you literally took your life into your own hands dodging the sea of mopeds that came at you from all directions! Our cycle route followed parts of the Mekong Delta River which stretches through Vietnam and Cambodia. The Mekong Delta is also significant as it has been found to be home to the Liver Fluke worm, which has been linked to one of the main causes of Cholangiocarcinoma in Southern Asia. We also cycled to the ‘Killing Fields’ Andrea and her of Vietnam at Ba Chuc, which was an emotional daughter Amelia To advertise call 01270 765619 or visit www.tedmags.co.uk


experience and cycled to ‘Sambor Prey Kuk’ one of the oldest temple sites in Cambodia. I’m so proud to have shared this amazing challenge and life changing experience with my daughter and such a fantastic group of friends. 18 very different personalities came together as a team, and I’m very pleased to say we have raised over £17,000 for this challenge alone! I would like to say a special thanks to the following businesses that have sponsored our latest adventure: The Window repair Centre Ltd Sanctuary Care Bluebird Care Gear Club Clothing A & O Events The Vintage Tractor Run Williams Design & Print Kier Herbalife Nutrition Godfrey C. Williams & Son Kitchen Sales UK Special thanks also to Nicky Trevor who paid for our team kit as featured in the photos! Since November 2016 when I started my fundraising campaign for this cancer charity, we have now raised over £45,500 (with gift aid included over £56,000). This has only been possible with the continued support from my family, friends and the generosity of the many local businesses that have regularly helped and supported many of my fundraising events. Every penny raised has gone directly to the charity and helps fund valuable research into ways of trying to identify this deadly cancer earlier, and hopefully will help save more lives going forward! I’m continuing to have scans every few months and have been told this devasting cancer could come back at any stage, setting myself these challenges has helped me to stay positive and focused. If you would like to donate to the AMMF please visit my just giving page www.justgiving.com/Fundraising/AndreasAMMFArmyVietnam2019 Thank you so much for reading this story and look out for information regarding my next big fundraising challenge which will be revealed very soon! - Andreas AMMF Army Please mention the Congleton Directory when responding to adverts
