SPRING Well, we are moving forward in the year, spring is fast approaching us and it’s the time for new beginnings. This brings me on to those who are starting new employment. “What sick pay do I get?” maybe not the first question that you would ask in an interview as this may not encourage an employer to think of you as a suitable candidate for a job. However, it is amazing how many people start a new job and do not read their contract fully. Are they aware of their benefits, or the effects of taking sick leave or if they have an accidents etc? It is important to check your contract for that information because if there is no allowance for sick pay then you could end up in the unfortunate position of being on statutory sick pay (SSP). This may be a massive reduction in your earnings each week and potentially cause all sorts of financial problems for you and your family. Other areas to look for in your contract are whether there is a company pension is available to you, and what, if any, “death in service” arrangements your family may be entitled to on your death whilst you are employed. When you have registered with the company pension scheme there is an important form “Nomination of Beneficiaries” you need to complete and, should you die, this tells the pension company who you would like to receive your pension. If this form is missed and your circumstances have changed, you could be gifting your pension to an ex-partner for example. If there are any changes in your circumstances like moving to a new house or your name, it’s a really good idea to let your pension company know your so that they can continue sending you statements, and it will be easier for you to keep tabs on your pensions. I like to compare pensions to cars; they need a good regular service, and the right fuel putting in them. Like with an old car, you may find that the shiny new pension that you thought was wonderful twenty years ago does not do what it should be doing now. It could be that the pension is an old-style type that does not allow freedoms, or a one that is invested in a poor performing fund. The difference between good and bad performance with pensions can be scary. Here at Mat White Financial Services, we offer a free contract review service, and can also check the ongoing suitability of your existing/new arrangements and pensions, so be sure to contact 01270 762 656 to make an appointment with one of our team.

JMG Gardener of the year 2017 Call 01270 756 989 A Sandbach gardener has won the trip of a lifetime after scooping a gardening award. Rob Chisholm, of Jim’s Mowing, has been named the JMG Gardener of the Year for 2017. He previously won the national title in 2015 and 2016. This year he beat off competition to be named the outright winner after going head-tohead against the winners in Australia, New Zealand and Canada. He is now due to fly out to Australia to attend the competition’s ceremony on January 30th. Rob will spend three weeks visiting the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney and the Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria in Melbourne. He said: “I’ve done some work in Tatton Gardens in the past and some work in other large gardens in the UK, but this is just the ultimate experience. “I do a lot of small gardens as well. I still get the same buzz as with the big ones.”Rob was nominated for the award by one of his customers. Judges were then shown examples of his work and then rang around 100 customers to gauge how satisfied they were with his team’s work. He found out he had won the award last month. Rob said: “We have only been running five years but we are growing from strength to strength. We have taken on more gardeners this year. We keep growing the business.“There’s a big call in Sandbach for good gardeners. There are people who do it and people who don’t know how to do it. “We’re doing really well. I have a really good team around me. If you want a reliable, qualified & most importantly fully insured gardener for regular mowing, lawn treatments or one off gardening jobs, or just want any advice, please give Rob a call on Sandbach 01270 756 989 or Mobile 07871 933 427

26 THE COST OF LONG TERM CARE HOW 100,000 FAMILIES ARE PAYING MASSIVE CARE HOME BILLS THAT THEY DON’T NEED TO Every 10 minutes an elderly person has to sell their home to pay for long term care. Currently if someone has assets over £23,250 they will pay for their own care. Despite various political parties promises that those who save will see their wealth ‘cascade down the generations’, today it is estimated that three out of four people whose parents go into a care home lose all or most of their inheritance to pay for the cost of residential care. As part of the assessment process councils have the power to investigate the way in which any capital or assets have been disposed of before going into care. What they are looking for is ‘deliberate deprivation of assets’ whether it be signing over a property to a relative or giving away large sums of money. There are things you can do legitimately to ensure that your family do not lose out. Make Sure a Relative Lives in Your House If you own your property but your spouse remains in it when you go into a care home or a relative aged over 60 or incapacitated your home may be disregarded as part of the financial assessment. Act Early Speak to a professional as soon as possible. Depending on the age and circumstances of a person, assets can be protected as part of long term estate planning. So act early, when you are fit and well and unlikely to require imminent residential care. How you own a property is crucial. Being ‘tenants in common’ will protect 50% of the property at least. Rely on a Family Trust A person could transfer the ownership of a property into a lifetime discretionary trust. Again this has to be done early and as part of your long term Estate Planning. There are many important benefits of setting up a trust such as helping mitigate and reduce probate fees, generational inheritance tax planning and sideways disinheritance. This will enable you to keep on living in the property and retain control with the ownership of the property going to the beneficiaries of the trust on your death. For a FREE no obligation chat with one of our experienced legal consultants please ring East Cheshire Estate Planning on 01625 410688. This can be at our convenient office or in the comfort of your own home.

5 Flat Tummy Myths (and 3 Steps to Tight Abs) Bikini season is right around the corner…are you ready? Most people want to slim down before baring it all, so I’m here to warn you of the 5 Flat Tummy Myths that could waste your time: Myth #1: Do extra crunches to flatten your abs. Excessive crunches aren’t the answer for tight abs. In order to achieve a toned look you’ll have to focus on burning off the layer of fat that is covering up your tummy. Tip: Don’t obsess about crunches - instead focus on fat burning. Myth #2: Take diet pills to speed results. I know it’s so tempting! The ads make compelling claims about the power of popping a pill, but don’t fall for it. There is no ‘magic pill’. Diet pills are more likely to burn through your pocketbook than to slim you down. Tip: Don’t pop a pill - instead burn calories with intense exercise. Myth #3: Turn to packaged diet products to boost results. Don’t fall for the foods that are packaged as ‘diet’ or ‘weight loss’ aids. Quite often these products are packed with refined sugar and other artificial ingredients that your body doesn’t need, and certainly won’t help you attain that tight tummy. Tip: Don’t eat packaged diet foods - instead stick with nutritious whole foods. Myth #4: Avoid all carbohydrates in order to achieve tight abs. Carbohydrates have been given a bad rap, which is unfortunate because you can (and should) eat carbs while slimming down. The key is to stick with whole grains, oatmeal and brown rice while avoiding processed and refined flours and sugars. Tip: Don’t give up all carbohydrates - instead stick with wholesome carbs. Myth #5: Starve the chub away. Trying to lose weight by starving yourself is not only ineffective it can also be dangerous. It may seem that severe calorie restriction would deliver the quickest weight loss, but your body is complex and by doing so you’ll disrupt your metabolism and slow your results. Tip: Don’t starve yourself - instead eat small wholesome meals throughout the day. Now that you know what not to do in order to achieve tight abs, it’s time to go over your flat tummy game plan. Here’s what you need to know in 3 simple steps: Step One: No more junk. The best way to do this is by purging your kitchen. Throw out the sugary, processed and fat-filled foods. Once the junk has been cleared out, don’t buy any more of it. Remember that your beachready abs depend on what you eat – don’t eat junk! Step Two: Eat whole foods. Replace the junk food in your life with plenty of the following: cooked and raw vegetables, fresh fruits, whole grains, moderate amounts of seeds and nuts, lean meats and low fat dairy. Clean eating really is that simple. Step Three: Come train at Sandbach Health and Fitness. This is the most obvious step. You’re ready to get into great shape and we’re in a unique position to make that happen for you. Call 01270 749354 or contact us through the Sandbach Health and Fitness Facebook site to get started on an exercise plan that will get you those amazing abs.

Spring Your Lawn Back To Weed-Free Life! Spring cleaning your house is popular now, but your lawn also deserves the same TLC to keep it healthy, weed-free, and looking its best for the busy Summer ahead. As winter recedes, your lawn – which can start to grow in ground temperatures of 10 degrees – now needs some early attention. Rake any bare patches and carefully sow some grass seeds mixed with top-soil. Remember to water well while seedlings sprout. On dry, sunny days lawnmowing can begin again, so start yours with a highest blade cut, just to snip the tops. Cutting the grass too short, too soon can attract unwanted weeds and moss. Good Spring weather allows local lawn care specialists GreenThumb to apply a special seasonal fertiliser – formulated to work even in cooler temperatures – to give grass essential nutrients to grow strong with vibrant colour. They also control any emerging, young weeds – especially broad-leaved such as Daisies, Dandelions and Buttercups – with a selective post- emergence herbicide. Lawnmowing Tips Milder winters – with ground temperatures of 5-10 degrees – mean your grass has probably continued growing all year. GreenThumb Worcester advises correct lawnmowing on dry and sunny days can make a huge difference. It recommends: Always sharpen or replace your lawn mower blade regularly, to avoid tearing the grass. Never remove more than one quarter the grass height in any one cut. Too short can weaken the grass and encourage weeds, moss and lawn disease. Remove grass clippings which contribute to surface thatch, and then moss. Save Time And Water With Oasis Any hotter, drier weather can turn your lawn yellow and dry. 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 heavy soils by up to 23% and on sandy ones by 50%. Imagine how much time you’ll save too! You can measure your lawn online at www.greenthumb.co.uk/measure for a treatment price estimate; or contact your local GreenThumb branch direct on 01270 750857 to book their professional and cost-effective service. SPECIAL OFFER! Request your FREE lawn analysis now and get your first treatment for just £10* during Spring-Summer 2018. To claim this offer, quote Spring18. (*T/Cs apply.)

New Ableworld Magazine Hold the front magazine on its way.

page…Ableworld

Some of the most successful publications with the largest circulations and readerships are actually customer magazines, provided by companies that understand the importance of staying close to their customer bases. Now the UK’s leading retailer of mobility equipment, Ableworld, is launching its own customer magazine which will be available free of charge in 34 stores around the UK and online. Titled ‘independence’, the magazine will provide readers with a variety of articles, news and views which Marketing Manager Michelle Mossford believes will provide useful advice: “Unlike many company newsletters and magazines, ‘Independence’ is about our customers and potential customers, not ourselves.

Michelle says that the company is also keen to hear from organisations, charities and companies that have services and products that the Ableworld magazine readers would find interesting and useful. The magazine, which is scheduled to appear quarterly initially, will be available to pick up from all 34 stores Nationwide by mid April. The magazine will also be available to read online and will be found on the home page of the Ableworld website. For further information email magazine@ ableworld.co.uk

The majority of the content is aimed at providing interesting and useful reading for the thousands of people who already shop with us and all those who visit our website and stores for the first time.” Ableworld will be looking to support its suppliers too as Michelle added: “We are keen to work with our suppliers to give them and their products exposure in the magazine. In the first issue we are celebrating the 50th anniversary of one of our suppliers and running a competition in conjunction with another.”

The glory of Wales’s beaches The beaches in Wales can be as wild and rugged as they are popular. There are those at the bustling seaside resorts and those where nature is pretty undisturbed and the only rock you’ll find is of the stone variety. You may not be able to guarantee the weather, but the beaches of Wales rarely disappoint holidaymakers. You can get off to a good start in the north of Wales at the popular seaside resort of Colwyn Bay, whose sandy beach stretches right around to its quieter neighbour, Rhos on Sea. The pace picks Llandudno, Wales’s premier up again at Rhyl, where endless amusement arcades flank the seaside resort, still oozes excellent sandy beach. Along the coast is Llandudno, Wales’s Victorian charm premier seaside resort, still oozing much of its original Victorian charm and splendour. The quietness of the seafront is rarely interrupted by the noise of amusement arcades, so you can quietly stroll alongside the sandy beach. The Isle of Anglesey is designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and it’s easy to see why. In the south, at Newborough, the wide sandy beach is blessed with simply stunning views across to Snowdonia. There are many hidden bays and more popular beaches to stumble across on a trip around Anglesey. Heading down the coastline to Llyn brings you to another Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. There’s an expansive beach at Dinas Dinlle in the north and the spectacular Black Rock Sands near Porthmadog in the south. In between there are the small resorts of Criccieth, Pwllheli, and Abersoch, the quaint coastal village of Aberdaron and the sheltered sandy bay of Porthdinllaen. The central coast of Wales boasts the Mawddach Estuary, whose wooded banks meet with majestic mountains. The seaside resort of Barmouth is at the estuary’s mouth and has its own picturesque harbour and sandy beach.The naturally beautiful Ceredigion Heritage Coast is a renowned area for dolphin spotting as well as walking. The rural coastline is interrupted by the small resorts and harbours of Aberporth, Llangrannog, New Quay and Aberaeron. The Victorian seaside resort of Aberystwyth, midway along Cardigan Bay, is the area’s largest resort and has two lovely sandy beaches. Of all Welsh beauties, the coastline of Pembrokeshire Coast Natural Park wins hands down. It is the UK’s only national park to solely feature coastline. In all, there are more than 50 beaches to choose from, 11 of which have earned Blue Flags and many have been issued Seaside Awards.Top choices for short breaks away include the resort of Tenby, which has three Blue Flag beaches, scenic Barafundle Bay and the aptly named Whitesands. The Pembrokeshire is also home to the Dolphin Coast of Cardigan Bay, where you can spot whales and dolphins swimming offshore. Finally, in the south you can have a wild encounter with nature along the Glamorgan Heritage Coast. The 14-mile Heritage Coast runs from Aberthaw to the dunes of Merthyr Mawr and is perfect walking territory. The coastal path hugs rugged cliff tops and heads down to secluded sandy beaches, the best being Southerndown. Who said that you need to jet off abroad for a good beach holiday?

My experience at an iTunes assessment day I’m in my third year of University, and with graduate life looming closer and closer, I have less and less of an idea of what that will entail for me. However, earlier this year I applied for a graduate scheme at Apple. I was contacted not long after and asked to do a digital interview, and then, to my complete shock, was invited down to London for their assessment day two weeks later. I lived in a state of disbelief for weeks- either keeping it a complete secret or mentioning it in hushed tones to not sound boastful, I really had no idea what to do but await the day. I arrived in London and, after battling the snow and my very misleading instructions on Google Maps, found my way to their offices. I went in, and looking around me, I realised how closely everything fit the stereotype. Everything was white, doors appeared as if from nowhere, there were Macs and iPads everywhere and I was just relieved that I didn’t have to get out a Samsung phone to check the time. We were all led into a conference room where we had our very own iPad to work on during the day (surprise surprise) and then began a Q&A with the hiring managers. I am reluctant to go into detail about this since Apple may or may not send someone to come and silence me, so I’ll just say that the people who work there seem pretty cool. There were later speed interviews and (god forbid) group presentations, which I managed to get through with a fake smile and just absolutely blabbering I think. I pushed myself out of my comfort zone and got a feel for the corporate world, however, I was later told I didn’t get a place on the scheme and had a grumpy train ride back home. Really, the moral of the story is that, whilst I didn’t get to become a trendy Apple employee who’d sit in Starbucks with their MacBook, I did steal a lanyard with my name on it (sorry not sorry).

You will need (pic1) Fabric & ribbon Scissors Pencil & tailors chalk Button & brooch pin Needle and thread Step By Step Instructions‌ 1.Draw out your flower to whatever size you wish, also size down the flower so you have 2 different sizes. (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.

Anya’s Blog Five Lifestyle Apps I Love Hello again! This post seems slightly belated, however, we are only a month into the year. I thought I’d talk to you today about everything that is happening in 2018, which I felt was highly appropriate, considering how much is changing for me this year. As some might be aware, I’ve reached the year in which I sit my GCSEs. This is something that will consume my thoughts for at least the next few months and, although they seem far away (they begin mid-May), I’m already feeling a huge amount of pressure which, unfortunately, is only going to get worse until the end of my last exam, which is when I’ll finally be able to breathe again. After all the work I put in, I’m really hoping, whatever they may be, to be content with my results. Luckily, I’m all sorted for college; I am staying on at Sandbach College, where I have been accepted and am hoping to study my A-Levels. This has taken some of the weight off my shoulders, simply because it is one less thing to worry about. In terms of blogging, I am working on balancing this with revision, and free time. I don’t want to reach a point when I find myself doing too much of one thing. Finally, I hope you’ve enjoyed reading this latest installment; stay tuned for my next post in March!

69 Taste Cheshire crowns local hospitality champions of 2018

At a glittering award ceremony at the Pavilion at Chester Racecourse, over 350 people from the hospitality industry gathered to Þnd out who had won the annual Taste Cheshire Awards on Wednesday 4th April.

Over 40,000 votes were cast by customers of venues right across Cheshire, which saw a short list in each category mystery dined and shopped by industry experts to determine the gold, silver and bronze medal winners.

Taste Cheshire general manager, Briony Wilson said: ÒIt was one of the best events we have ever put on. The industry gets so little time to get together and celebrate what an amazing job they all do representing Cheshire to the millions of visitors we have to the county every year.

ÒAll of our nominees have had a wonderful 2017 and our various winners at each level have excelled at the very top of their game. It is a privilege for us to be able to celebrate their achievements with them.”

The event was hosted by Gavin Matthews, with Horseradish Catering providing a meal for perhaps the toughest ‘gig’ of the year, feeding their peers.

Taste Cheshire owner Stephen Wundke was delighted with the event, as he explained: ÒOur annual awards have been running now for 18 years and by staging these just after the Food and Drink Festival we bring a huge focus across the UK on to Cheshire and its food and drink industry.

ÒThis was a superb night and we are already planning for how we can introduce more categories for 2019 to encourage even more people in to the industry.Ó

Andrea’s AMMF Army – Climbing Kilimanjaro February 2018! Message from the Summit… 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, much more research into finding an earlier way of diagnosing it is desperately needed. The AMMF is the UK’s only Cholangiocarcinoma Cancer Charity, dedicated Andreas AMMF Army to tackling this devastating cancer on all fronts: providing information and support, campaigning to raise awareness, and encouraging and supporting research.

Andreas AMMF Army

I have been on a mission to raise money and awareness of this devastating cancer by climbing the UK’s tallest mountains over the past few months, running other local fundraising events including a charity ladies’ night and a firewalk event. All these events were leading up to my biggest challenge so far which was to climb the world’s largest freestanding mountain Kilimanjaro!

On the 17th February myself, my 14-year-old son, and 10 other amazing friends flew out to Tanzania to climb Kilimanjaro. We started our 6 days climb on Monday 19th February, the climb was very challenging and altitude sickness caused problems for most of us at some stage of the trip. I’m pleased to say that on the morning of the 23rd 6 of us (myself included), reached the summit of Kilimanjaro. I’m extremely proud of my son Sam who managed to get to 15,000 feet before he had to turn back and everyone else on our trip. These lovely friends Michelle Johnson, Laura Beck, David Wiley, Fi Bryne, Ash Findler, Erica Cordock, Mike Bull, Andrew Suter, Simon Gregory & Glynne Jones all gave up their own money and time to join me on this trip and endured all sorts of challenges along the way, I am extremely proud and grateful to each one of them!

Andrea and her son Sam

Since November 2016 we have raised just over £26,800 for this amazing charity (6.7K from our first JustGiving page and 20.1k with our latest JustGiving page). I would like to also personally thank all the businesses that have sponsored us: There are lots of other amazing people/ businesses that have helped me along the way and I’m so grateful to all of them for this. My next scan is on the 3rd April so I’m keeping everything crossed for this and I’m already planning my next big fundraising event and will reveal details regarding this soon! If you would like to donate to the AMMF text 70070 quoting YPPH89 (text donations can be upto £10) or please visit my just giving page www.justgiving.com/Fundraising/ AndreasAMMFArmy Thank you so much for reading this story – Andrea and her AMMF Army!
