Raisi a glass to Raising help raise funds for hel the Hoylake Parade th C Community Centre At Peerless Brewery, we love to be part of the business community in Wirral. This gives us the platform to help the community in general. So, when we heard about the Hoylake Parade Community Centre project, we could see an opportunity to get involved. So, we are really happy to provide our services to Hoylake Parade Community Centre free of charge in order to help in raising funds. The Parade is currently undertaking a massive fundraising project so that a lift a can be installed at the Centre. The project will also see disabled toilet facilities built on the first floor. The building is now independent from the Local Authority and all maintenance and improvement works must now be funded by the Centre. Not having a lift limit access for those with mobility problems to be a part of the wide range of events and classes that are held upstairs. To be able to carry out the works, £95,000 needs to be raised. From The Parade’s reserves and through fundraising and donations, an incredible £25,000 has been raised so far. The remaining £70,000 will need to be raised through further fundraising and donations. The Parade is a centre for the whole Wirral community and the team at the centre and Peerless Brewery aim to get the building fully accessible to everyone as soon as possible. So come and join us for a fantastic weekend filled with live music, good food and 50+ delicious ales. Let’s raise a glass and help the Hoylake Parade Community Centre project w well on it’s way to achieving its goal!

John Robert Parker Ravenscroft, OBE (30 August 1939 – 25 October 2004), known professionally as John Peel, was an English disc jockey, radio presenter, record producer and journalist. He was the longest serving of the original BBC Radio 1 DJs, broadcasting regularly from 1967 until his death in 2004. He was known for his eclectic taste in music and his honest and warm broadcasting style. He was one of the first broadcasters to play psychedelic rock and progressive rock records on British radio, and he is widely acknowledged for promoting artists working in various genres, including pop, reggae, indie pop, indie rock, alternative rock, punk, hardcore punk, breakcore, grindcore, death metal, British hip hop, electronic music and dance music. Fellow DJ Paul Gambaccini described him as "the most important man in music for about a dozen years". Peel's Radio 1 shows were notable for the regular "Peel sessions", which usually consisted of four songs recorded by an artist live in the BBC's studios, and which often provided the first major national coverage to bands that later would achieve great fame. Another popular feature of his shows was the annual Festive Fifty countdown of his listeners' favourite records of the year. Peel appeared occasionally on British television as one of the presenters of Top of the Pops in the 1980s, and he provided voice-over commentary for a number of BBC programmes. He became popular with the audience of BBC Radio 4 for his Home Truths programme, which ran from the 1990s, featuring unusual stories from listeners' domestic lives.

How to make Fruit Ice Lollies Looking to give the children a summer treat without it being full of refined sugar and additives? How about one that is full of goodness and contributes towards their 5 a day (absolute minimum)? Then try these, the kids will love them - that’s if you don’t eat them all yourself!

Ingredients 2 cups kiwis, 2 cups mangos, 2 cups strawberries. Peel the kiwi and mango then take each of the fruits individually and blend them with a little bit of water until you have a fruit paste. Next take your ice lolly moulds and layer each fruit starting with the strawberry at the bottom then the mango and finally the kiwi at the top. Pop in a stick and let the ice lollies set for a few hours in the freezer and that’s all there is to it!

PAGE 20 www.focusbestdeals.co.uk

Why not even let the children make their own ice lollies with you and then put them in the freezer over night ready for the next day. Don’t forget other fruits can be used so why not experiment with your favourites or even try lots of different flavours.

0151 345 0814 www.bodyworkswirral.co.uk Bodyworks Nutrition & Fitness is the realisation of a dream for Nutritional Therapist and Personal Trainer Mark Hesketh. With nearly 35 years training experience Mark set up the centre in 2009 in order to help people in achieving their own health improvement goals. The centre operates as a ‘pay as you go gym’ where there are no requirements to sign up to long expensive contracts or monthly direct debit, you can choose to pay by the session, the week or the month. Mark is available for personal training to work with you on a one to one basis, making the most of his experience in structuring an individualised programme and taking you through workouts to achieve your individual goals. Mark is a fully qualified Nutritional Therapist and full member of the British Association for Applied Nutrition and Nutritional Therapy (BANT). In addition to specialising in weight management and sports nutrition, Mark has attended master classes presented by some of the world’s experts in nutrition including classes in diabetes, obesity, allergies, digestive system health, & sports nutrition. This enables him to support clients with a wide range of health issues through professional, private, and confidential nutritional consultations. Bodyworks have now added Food Intolerance Testing to its range of services. These are professional tests that analyse the body’s IgG response. They can test a client’s response to anything from 50 to 150 different foods and drinks depending on the specific test selected. Once the results are returned from the laboratories a consultation with Mark is arranged to go through the results and discuss dietary adaptations. Being healthy or improving your fitness isn’t just for the young or for those who want to be ultra fit, it is something we can and should all do. Sometimes though it is difficult to know where to start, what to do, when, for how long etc and that is where we can help. So let us help you be the best you can be! Invest in your own health now!

TO SHOP LOCAL

Reasons

1

Shopping local creates jobs. Shops in our towns create local employment and self-employment. These people in turn spend in the local community.

2

Local independent shops invest more in our communities. Local businesses are proportionately more generous in their support of local charities, schools and community events. Supporting local shops means a financial impact on your community.

3

Local shops sell a wide range of great products at affordable prices. Many people fall out of the habit of shopping locally and are then surprised by the range of products and gifts available.

4

Shopping local saves you money. Out of town shops have done a good job of convincing us that local business equals expensive. If you add travel, fees to transfer items and your time, the overall cost is often much higher.

5

Shopping local retains our communities. People don’t like losing shops and services in small towns but don’t equate this to how they spend their money.

6

Shopping local retains our distinctiveness. Independent shops create distinctive shopping experiences and stock different products. Local businesses respond quickly to the needs of local customers, stocking products to meet the changing population needs.

Wirral Focus 13th Edt (1)_Layout 1 30/07/2013 15:02 Page 25

7

Shopping local saves the environment. Local shops often stock a high percentage of local sourced goods which do not require long car and bus journeys, helping reduce our global footprint.

8

Local shops are for everyone. Most people can get to their local shops easily and this is especially important for the elderly and young generations and those without transportation.

9

Local shops value you more. Evidence from numerous surveys show people receive better customer care and service locally. These businesses survive by their reputation and repeat business, which means you get a higher standard of service.

10

Shopping local saves services. Private and public sector services tend to cluster around shops. As shops disappear so do hairdressers, banks, restaurants, etc.

SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL BUSINESSES. SHOP WELL. SHOP LOCAL.

“Customers ca n visit our shop for a fitted alteration or be spoke dressmaking service and we provid e friendly help an d advice - somet hing the internet ca nnot provide.” Laura and Ju lia Seams Sew Ea sy Moreton

“Our high stre et is so important to m y family. I have elderly parents who need to be able to shop near to home. I don’t drive an d work shifts so shop ping would be diffi cult if I had to travel .” Kate Dewhur st West Kirby

So you want to support Wirral shops and buy locally? In the Wirral you are spoilt for choice but one of our favourite places is West Kirby. There is a no better place for pure variety of places to shop, eat and walk, taking in the views of this wonderful small town that sits on the northwest corner of the coast of the Wirral Peninsula. The West Kirby shopping area is conveniently compact and situated around 1km from West Kirby Railway Station.You will find a varied array of outlets waiting to invite you through their doors. Whatever you are looking for, we are sure you will find it here. For designer wear, browse the selections at Wrogue, Nancie Henry, the Front Room and Citrine before choosing your footwear at Braggs Shoes, Wah Wah or the Kate Kuba Shoe Shop. For the home, take a look in Lifestyle Outlet Furniture Store or The Furniture & Sofa Co before choosing curtains in The Fabric Loft. Bespoke Bathrooms and Kitchens and Ultimate Interiors can create those important rooms for you and Staacks and Le Bizz for gifts and beautiful items for the home.

Why shop locally? Remember, the £5 spent with the local baker is in turn spent with the local gift shop, who shops with the local butcher, who employs a local accountant, who advertises in a local magazine, who promote local businesses …. we all help to make our community tick so shop locally!

Visiting West Kirby Remember, after all this shopping you will probably need a little pampering yourself! West Kirby has many hairdressers and beauty salons to enjoy. For beauty, try Positive Touch, Jaleh Beauty Salon or Sun & Beauty Boutique. For hair, try Red Hair Studio, Avant Garde, Enigma or Studio 104. Now after all that, take some real time out over a coffee and light lunch. Lattetude, Aubergine Cafe, Toast and Tanskey's Ltd all serve delicious snacks and light meals. If you prefer something more substantial go to The Wro, The Ring o Bells, Scogs, Hickory's Smokehouse or Astoria Restaurant and Bar. It’s not all shopping though! Don’t forget West Kirby contains Ashton Park and a starting point of the Wirral Way, which follows the trackbed of the former Birkenhead Railway branch line from Hooton. Sandlea Park lies in the centre of the town, a short walk from the railway station. There are various other small parks and bowling greens situated around the town. Another popular activity is to walk out to the islands of Little Eye, Middle Eye and Hilbre Island at low tide. The promenade and beach and the walk to the war memorial allow an excellent panoramic view of part of the North Wales coastline.

Did you know? The Hoylake and West Kirby War Memorial is a notable local landmark, designed in 1922 by the British sculptor Charles Sargeant Jagger, who was responsible for a number of war memorials around the world, including the Royal Artillery Memorial at Hyde Park Corner in London.

Shoppers viewpoint “We always love going to West Kirby. It’s so easy to shop and we always finish the day with a glorious walk along the marine lake.” Claire Jones, Heswall PAGE 27 To advertise call: 0151 329 2813
