Welcome to the spring edition of The Breeze. In this edition, as well as our regular features we have the results of our “Great Outdoors” photo competition and I think you will be impressed by the standard of entries. Thanks to all who entered and to Lisa Dalton for picking the winners. We also have details of the Children’s summer photo competition with the theme “FUN FUN FUN.”
As many in the village will be aware, The Bay Horse pub is under temporary management and following a recent Hade Edge Action for Residents group meeting, Chairman Matthew Milburn asks the question “Fancy a share in your local?” Read all about it in his chairs report.
Our regular Valleys Police feature takes on a different slant in this edition in the form of an account of the daily activities of Police Community Support Officer Kayleigh Moorhouse (CS851). Kayleigh joined the team in November 2013 and is now a well known member of the local community.
We’ve also managed to persuade local outspoken character Jack Snittle to share his concerns on village issues with us once again.
Those with an interest in music may be aware the The Hade Edge Academy of Music has moved from the band room to a new home in Hope Bank at Honley. Read Simon Wood’s article and find out what’s new at The Academy.
Coeliac Disease….what’s that? Read Lisa Dalton’s article about her diagnosis and life on a gluten free diet.
We are always keen to hear from our readers so if you would like to contribute to The Breeze, please get in touch at email@example.com

Fancy a share in your local?
On February 11th 2014, the Hade Edge Action for Residents group held a meeting, which explored the possible beneCits of the local community buying The Bay Horse. A temporary relief manager is currently running the pub and we are told that the brewery is prepared to sell.
The twenty or so residents present agreed that Hade Edge would be a less attractive place to live if as has been suggested, the pub were to be converted to residential accommodation. We looked at the various reasons why The Bay Horse is less popular compared to other local pubs and talked about the kind of business it might attract if local people took ownership and employed a live in manager to run it.
Many felt the pub needed to be seen as a warm, welcoming local with a cosier, more family friendly feel. It was recognised that the fabric of the building needs some urgent attention. Although the roof is sound, the heating system is on its last legs and it needs rewiring, new windows, insulation and redecorating. Therefore, as well as raising the funds to buy the pub, an additional and signiCicant sum would be needed to Cinance the business and support the reCit, stocking etc.
Spreadsheets itemising start up costs and the potential returns for the business are being developed based on current sales and modelling increased sales and the addition of a food offer. It was agreed that there are likely to be many in the village that would support the development of the pub as a community asset and who might be prepared to invest both time and money in the project. For many it would be a lifestyle choice as much as a business proposition; a thriving community pub would certainly make Hade Edge an even better place to live.
Two models of community ownership were discussed. The Cirst was a cooperative such as that which has enabled the Anglers Rest in Bamford to be secured. Whilst very democratic (one person one vote) this model requires a great deal of time to set up and “management by committee” was seen as cumbersome and unwieldy by some.
The second model was a share offer but on a one share one vote basis. This would enable a small number of major shareholders to take a lead role in the strategic direction and accountability of the operation. This might mean that shares would be available to anyone who wanted to buy them and that the balance were bought by two or three parties who would take responsibility for managing the business with a brief for making the pub a going concern and a more signiCicant community asset.
There was interest in both models although the second was felt to be more realistic and
attractive both to those who live in Hade Edge and to those (such as cyclists, walkers and commuters) who pass through.
A sub committee was encouraged to draft Cirmer proposals prior to the next meeting, which will take place at 8pm on March 11th. This meeting is intended for anyone who is interested in Cinding out more or in investing in what could be a very exciting venture. It was suggested that the sub committee explore a number of government-‐ backed schemes and grants that encourage local people to take ownership of what are deemed to be community assets.
At the meeting in March a strategy for the development of the pub will be discussed. This might involve a staged approach, which might take a number of years to realise and over which time, investors accept that they would not be looking to make a return or cash in shares. Current thinking is that having established an overarching strategy for the pub, there would then be a phased development plan which could be reviewed as it unfolded. The scheme could be phased in the following manner:
Stage 1. Secure the purchase of the pub for the community and claim back the VAT Stage 2. Undertake essential works to make the pub safe, warm and welcoming. This will involve rewiring, a new heating system, insulation and the reCit of the front bar. Stage 3. Develop the kitchen to enable the sale of food. Stage 4. Develop the back room as a Clexible space suitable for music evenings, serving food, quiz nights etc. Stage 5. Extend the function room with a south-‐facing conservatory, overlooking the reservoir and moors. Stage 6. Develop upstairs to create additional accommodation.

If you are interested in investing in the pub or if you just want to hear about the proposals, then please do come along on March 11th at 8pm in the Bay Horse. You would be most welcome and you could

Head Teacher Jeff Kilner reports…
After arriving back at school in January the children have been full of awe and wonder. Learning about Dinosaurs in KS1 and KS2 children learning about Ancient Egypt. The school has taken on a very historic feel with displays and children’s work representing these periods of history. In early February we had a whole school trip to Manchester Museum where we participated in Dinosaur and Egyptian workshops. I have heard from so many of our children that this educational visit was ‘the best trip ever’ and the learning that took place there was immeasurable
We are continuing these topics all the way through until Easter and the children may have one or two surprises on the way. Indeed, Class Two, our Wonderful Wolves are already planning their Easter production called ‘Glint of Gold which has a very Egyptian storyline. Tickets will be on sale shortly and it would be lovely to see people from our community enjoying the show so please come and join us.
We have been busy outside of school too and particularly in the playground where our canopy is now complete. Whilst discussing this with children they are already identifying the different equipment that they would like to have out there and we have drawn up plans for a little fenced area so that we can extend the planting by the canopy too.
So, all in, we have been very busy in school. We have some big events on the horizon such as our Spring Fair and educational visits. We can already hear the buzz of excitement around these plans so we will be glad to see the wintry weather come to an end and to feel the warmth of Spring coming through.

The Friends Of Hade Edge (FOHE)
After the hectic run up to Christmas, January has been a little calmer for the Friends Committee. I therefore wanted to take this opportunity to share with you the ways in which the children of Hade Edge School are benefiting from funds the FOHE group raise (in conjunction with the support from the local community that the events the FOHE host).
Last term the FOHE group bought some iPads for the children to use at school to enhance their learning. The FOHE also paid for the Christmas crackers for the childrenâ€™s Christmas dinner (Christmas dinner would not be the same without crackers!). Finally the FOHE have provided funds needed to buy cooking equipment for the children to use in school to support the school in helping children develop basic cookery skills.
! Events coming upâ€Ś. !
On February 20th the FOHE, working with the school council, are hosting a family social event comprising of a beetle drive, picture quiz and refreshments. It is hoped the event will be well supported and lots of fun. If so it may well become an annual event in the FOHE calendar.
And of course, the annual spring fair will be held round Easter time. A provisional date for the diary is Saturday 5th April from 10am until 12pm so please put this in your calendars. This is subject to change, however, depending on how the long term weather forecast develops. The event is open to everyone. Whether you come for the legendary chocolate tombola, the bottle tombola, or maybe you would like your face painted, as long as you come you are guaranteed a great time. As usual there will be tea, coffee and bacon sandwiches available for when you need to rest and take stock of all the great prizes you have won! Each year we also have a fantastic raffle with prizes donated from local businesses. If you, or your company, could donate anything for the raffle or the bottle tombola then it would be most appreciated. You can contact us on the email below or through school.
! Hope to see as many of you and your friends there. ! Clare Robinson Chairperson Fohe@hotmail.co.uk
Ps The next Bags 2 School collection is on the 7th May 2014. So if you have any clothing donations for that then please drop them at school before 9am on that day.

NEW CLUB HOUSE. With the exterior completed, work has now begun on the interior and walls, electrics and plumbing are all on-going. Hopefully it will not be long before we are able to use the building but more funds will be needed before completion.

An Insight Into Coeliac Disease- By Lisa Dalton, Hade Edge Resident
“I believe you have Coeliac Disease”. My heart sank and my initial reaction to hearing this was “how long do I have to live?” The word ‘disease’ frightened me. I had never heard of Coeliac Disease, but once the Doctor started to explain it, I relaxed a little. I learnt straight away that as long as I stuck to a Gluten Free diet I could live a normal life.
I was 23, in a full .me job, 6 months oﬀ my wedding and I had just moved in with my Fiancée but even in this situa.on when I should have been as happy as I could have been, every day felt like a ‘Monday morning’. I was .ered all the .me, energy less, had tummy aches aFer most meals, losing weight and everyday seemed hard work. While I wanted to feel excited about my forthcoming big day and the majority of the wedding was organised, day to day things seemed to be an eﬀort.
It was my Mum who persuaded me to go see the doctor, and while like most of us I put oﬀ seeing the doctor whenever possible I decided she was right. So this was when, aFer explaining my symptoms I heard those words.
I returned to work the same day my blood test results came back and I had the whole of the Photography Company I worked for at the .me ‘Googling’ Coeliac Disease to ﬁnd out more about it.
Bread, Pizza, cakes, biscuits, pasta – just some of the common foods which I was discovering I would never be able to eat again due to them containing Wheat & Gluten. However when I started to ﬁnd less obvious food products such as yoghurts, crisps, ice creams, sausages and even chocolate and sweets contained wheat and Gluten I was shocked. I looked in my lunch box for that day and if I had I been told to s.ck to a Gluten free diet straight away I would only have been able to eat the fruit. However, I had been told to con.nue ea.ng normally un.l aFer the endoscopy I had to undergo otherwise it would have given a false reading.
The doctor who carried out the endoscopy was able to tell me straight away that I deﬁnitely had Coeliac Disease and to start a Gluten Free diet immediately. Within 24 hours of the diet I felt like a diﬀerent person!
In a Coeliac’s body, the immune system mistakes substance found inside gluten (found in wheat, barley & rye) as a threat and aYacks them. This then damages the surface of the small bowel (intes.nes), disrup.ng the body’s ability to absorb nutrients from food. So, once on a Gluten Free diet the Villi on the surface of the intes.nes re grow and the gut works correctly again. 10 years and 2 children later, on a Gluten Free diet I am very well. We were advised to keep our children on a Gluten free diet for the ﬁrst year of their lives to allow their immune system to best chance of not becoming Coeliacs themselves. However following blood tests on my children earlier last year, Ben’s results came back as ‘Highly Nega.ve’ but Holly’s results came back as ‘highly posi.ve’. Holly then had to undergo an endoscopy with a posi.ve diagnosis. Coeliac Disease, we discovered usually skips a genera.on but for 7 year old Holly it obviously hadn’t. My Heart sank when the diagnosis was posi.ve and my main thought for her was ‘how would she cope at birthday par.es?’ At lease when I was diagnosed I was 23 and could cope with knowing I wasn’t able to eat ‘normal’ food from now on but to tell a 7 year old she couldn’t eat normal pizza, sausage rolls, sandwiches, cakes or biscuits and other tradi.onal party foods again broke my heart. One of the main beneﬁts Holly has is that not only does she have myself who is already a Coeliac, but also ironically her cousin (with no blood rela.on) and his Grandma also have the condi.on. This meant it wasn’t a scary or trauma.c shiF onto a Gluten Free diet and lifestyle as it wasn’t something she hadn’t ever heard of or knew about. Holly is learning everyday about the foods she can and can’t eat. She is adap.ng well to the diet and has learnt quickly that she must now check before ea.ng or drinking anything. Holly was reluctant to eat everyday food such as bread before the diagnosis as we now realise that it wasn’t because she didn’t like certain things but it was because she knew herself that it hurt her tummy. We have explained some of the implica.ons to Holly regarding not s.cking to a Gluten Free diet which helps when it comes to the .mes when she really would like to just eat that big, gooey, chocolate muﬃn..... and fortunately the thought of a tummy ache helps her see round it. Implica.ons of not s.cking to a Gluten free diet in the short term can be stomach cramps, bloa.ng, diarrhoea, and general .redness. In the long term the eﬀects can be much more devasta.ng. Untreated celiac disease can be life threatening. Ceoliac’s are more likely to be aﬄicted with problems rela.ng to malabsorp.on, including osteoporosis, tooth enamel defects, central and peripheral nervous system disease, pancrea.c disease, internal haemorrhaging, organ disorders (gall bladder, liver, and spleen), infer.lity and gynaecological disorders. Untreated celiac disease has also been linked an increased risk of certain types of cancer, especially intes.nal lymphoma. Coeliac UK is the main support charity for the disease and is con.nuing research into the illness all the .me. It has many ‘apps’ to check suitability of products and registers many restaurant, pubs, cafes and eateries to make ea.ng out a liYle easier. Many eateries are now much more aware of Gluten Free diets and cater for them. Supermarkets and specialist shops are providing many raw ingredients as well as ready meals, cakes and biscuits, making buying for Coeliac’s much easier.
Checking suitability of food for a Coeliac is vital, so please never be worried to ask if you are unsure about providing a Gluten free meal or snack for anyone with Coeliac Disease.

Dog fowling seems to be a major problem within our village, especially in the areas of Snittle Road, the common land, the recreation ground and the area around Hade Edge School. All responsible dog owners know to collect dog waste. Children play in these areas so not doing so is unacceptable. As a responsible villager or dog owner if you witness a culprit not picking up then please say something. There are bags in the dog poo bag dispenser and if anyone needs extra bags (I have a box which do not fit the dispenser) please contact Helen Craggs on 07841752973.
Thanks! Bag it up & put it in the bin folks!!!! Letâ€™s keep our village a great place to live. 30
It’s been an exciting time at Hade Edge Preschool in the last few months and not just for the children. We have been looking at how to spend the money that was raised from the Hade Edge Gala and expanding our voluntary committee.
We have also had a few open mornings recently, however parents and children are welcome to come and visit anytime. We take children from age 2, so please drop in and talk to us if you are interested in your child attending some of our sessions.
Over the last few months we have looked at further developing our relationship with our village school. Jane and I even had a phonics lesson with Mrs Koltuk. We have come away with lots of great new ideas about how to prepare our children for the transition to school, with phonics, numbers and early writing but don’t worry we don’t work them too hard. Our motto is still “learning though play”, in fact we aim for the children to have so much fun they don’t even know they are learning!
With these developments in mind we have spent about half our Gala funds on some new toys, including some empathy dolls, some jolly phonics resources including CDs, song books, alphabet fishing games and lots more number and letter based toys and games. We are also looking at developing our outdoor play area, with the success of the sensory garden and the summer (we hope) approaching we will be upgrading our outside toys over the coming months too.

Country Watch with Jack Snittle
It's about this time of year we start to look at nature anew. We're just starting to appreciate slightly more daylight and it's good to take a moment to look around us and take pleasure in the delights of living in semi rural West Yorkshire. We're privileged to be on the fringe of urban and rural; city dwellers can't work out why we live here, true country people would think we're just 'pretending' to live in the sticks. Wildlife is one of the benefits of such a hybrid lifestyle, but there are also a few examples of nature that have been captive but then released by irresponsible owners. I've listed a few examples that we see regularly: Tinnius Lagerus A shy creature, often found hiding in drainage channels or ditches at the side of roads. A flightless bird, though it's keepers are sometimes seen trying to encourage flight by throwing the unfortunate animal from speeding hatchbacks. Genericus Friedchickenbocs A nocturnal mammal, found close to small semirural towns that aren't populated by the more aggressive American 'Kentucky' Friedchickenbocs. This species has a remarkable body clock and often appears, amazingly, on Saturdays and Sunday mornings. Cuppus Costacoffeuis A migrant with stamina that can only be rivalled by the swallow or swift. Making long journeys from the larger towns in the area due to the fact that their body contains 99.6% liquid at 80째C, body heat is maintained for large distances. Definitely an urban dweller, these seem destined to drop to earth as soon as a clean, green verge is found.
Frozia Foodpackagia A remarkable wee beast this one. Capable of living at subzero temperatures for years at a time. Usually happy in captivity, it can sometimes make a break for it after its green bin home is upturned in high winds on bi weekly Tuesday night/Wednesday morning. Brindonus Piebag This is a little beauty, a little smaller than some of the others, and specific to the local area around Hade Edge. A white plumage with attractive burgundy markings, weâ€™re lucky to have this delightful creature so close. Has been seen as far afield as blowing down Scholes Moor Road. One must remember that these animals should ideally be controlled, but in the absence of wardens, we can all, as a community, do our bit to corral and contain their impact. Remember, wild animals like these can carry disease! Obviously I don't condone violence, but should you see anyone releasing one of the above creatures into the wild, tell them they're an arse and punch them on the side of the head.* * This is the opinion of the author only and in no way represent the feelings of the HEAR committee. Probably.

Hade Edge Band
A warm welcome to everyone in Hade Edge from the Band and committee. By now, I guess most of the villagers will have heard the news that the Academy groups have departed the band room and moved to premises in Honley. A decision taken by the Academy Management Team and felt regrettable by all at Hade Edge Band. We have a new conductor for the Band in Jonathan Beatty, a local lad with roots in New Mill and Meltham and he is keen to get to know the residents in Hade Edge. We look forward to a vibrant 2014 with Jonathan in charge of the music for the Senior Band. The committee are keen to hear from individuals, organisations or businesses who are looking for premises to rent/hire, either for regular events/meetings of groups etc, or for one-off occasions. Our facilities are superb and we feel the village can benefit from these whenever possible.

Tour De France Caravan and Camping Â at Hade Edge Band Room.!
! ! !
We are working with Kirklees Council Tour de France centre for us to offer! our facilities to tourists who are planning to stay in the area whilst the! race comes through Yorkshire on the 5th and 6th July. The field adjoining! the band room many years ago belonged to the band and was signed over to! Kirklees so they could provide a recreational facility for the villagers, on the understanding that the band could have use of the field by request on a limited number of occasions per year in order to raise funds for the band.! Some villagers may recall caravan rallies on this field in the mid 1990's! which was a band fundraising activity at that time. We are offering tourists camping and caravan facilities from the afternoon of Friday 4th July through to mid-day on Monday 7th July. Facilities such as toilets, washing, snacks and refreshments would be in the band room and the area will be staffed by marshals from band members throughout the period. We will keep everyone informed of the progress before July comes around, but if anyone has any concerns or ideas we can tap into over this period ,we would welcome a visit by you at the band room either on a Tuesday or Thursday evening whilst the band are rehearsing between 8pm and 10pm. Everyone is welcome to pop in and listen to the band at anytime.!
! Thank you ! !

HADE EDGE Academy of Music by Simon Wood
Well, one thing is for sure, its not so breezy down in the valley!!
Moving Hade Edge Academy of Music down to Hope Bank has been quite a stressful time as I’m sure you can all imagine. In reality the Academy had outgrown the space at the band room and once it became clear that we wouldn’t have enough time or space available to us then a new venue was inevitable.
In reality we have been able to expand all our tuition, brass, keyboard, woodwind, guitars and also extend our groups and rehearsal times to reFlect the growing demand. We have three practice/teaching rooms available, all with pianos, Five large rehearsal rooms and the main hall. We also have a full workshop and large open space for your imagination. Come and have a look! Enjoy the free wiFi and Café/Kitchen.
It’s also amazing to be a part of the Hope Bank Works project. It’s worth searching Hope Bank Pleasure Gardens on the internet to see what a fantastic heritage the Holme Valley has.
We already have two theatre groups at Hope Bank, Back Lane Art Space are here Five days a week, plus the cooking, knitting, sewing etc, it’s all very exciting. Our Tuesday afternoon sing song is wonderful and keep a look out for our JOB CLUB and Back to Work scheme. Our cooking suite is due to be Finished soon, for community cooking and private hire and our Food Bank and Clothing bank are already up and running.
Hope Bank is a community space. We are here to work with and help all community based ideas and groups, we are supporting our village halls and local musicians as much as possible. Those people who have worked with me know that helping others is really important.
Our First free CHARITY concert was wonderful. 200 people may have been a squeeze but both stages looked terriFic and all our performers seemed to be up for it. Our chosen Charity was the Joseph Salmon Trust and it was brilliant to hand over a handsome cheque to them.
As for the future, our groups we will be playing at the Gala as normal and at Hade Edge Band Sunday at Church and we continue to support the Edgy Sessions. I have forged many community links in Hade Edge and they are all precious to me. We will do everything to help and support the community in Hade Edge.
I'm also delighted to announce that our groups will be performing directly on the TDF route. Hopefully we can offer all our visitors a warm welcome with free performances across the whole weekend.
Finally our “Top of the world Arts Weekend” will take place on June 21st,22nd and 23rd once again with two valleys radio. Should be an exciting weekend.
If anyone would like to speak to me about the Academy or Hope Bank Works then don’t hesitate. 07973 426939. See you all soon.

At the time of writing, I’m sure I’m not alone in feeling fed up with the horizontal rain, Hade Edge is particularly good at providing. However, it’s not all bad news, as this weather calls out for hearty stews and comfort food. There are plenty of options for those of you wanting something tasty, cheap and easy. We have our usual bulk buy deals on Braising Steak, Mince and Diced Beef, and it’s all fresh so it’s perfect for stocking up the freezer. We can also bag it in portions at your convenience. For the more adventurous of you we have some different options. These include Ox Cheek, Oxtail and Pigs Cheeks. These are all cheap cuts and remarkably easy to cook. These types of cut are now in quite high demand as some TV chefs and restaurants are getting behind them and re-‐ educating people how to make the best of them. Because we only get a limited number of these each week from our locally reared stock it’s wise to order them, either via Phone (01484 682897), e-‐mail (email@example.com), Facebook (J Brindon Addys Traditional Butchers and Graziers) or Twitter (@AddysButchers). I hope everybody enjoys experimenting in the kitchen and making the most of these delicious cuts.
https://www.facebook.com/Edgy.Sessions.Acoustic.Night Edgy Sessions on the 11th January was a great night. The super Ged Wilson set the night off with his stomping blues, the pub was rocking. Simon Wood and his band, an Edgy favourite, slowed things down with a set of love songs old and new. A jazzy set of excellent music by excellent musicians. Jimmy No Pants Dare had the crowd singing and dancing with his upbeat popular covers. A great night at the Post Card Inn, the best music venue in town. We raised £87 on the raffle.
Edgy on the 1st February was a superb event. Evans & Munroe kicked the evening off with a guitar and double bass. They sang about life’s trials and tribulations with quite a bit of humour thrown in. Hade Edge’s very own Unsuited played next. The fun party band had the pub jumping with their great covers. Matt Bentley & Steph Stephenson headlined. A pair of exceptionally talented musicians, playing folk-pop with a few covers too. Matt is an intricate performer and with Steph’s haunting vocals they blew us away. The raffle raised £118.
Thank you to all who come and support Edgy Sessions. Raising money for our village!

Introducing Police Community Support Officer Kayleigh Moorhouse
Hi, I am Kayleigh Moorhouse, one of your local Police Community Support Officers (PCSO). I have been as PCSO since November 2013 and my beat covers Holmfirth and its surrounding villages. Covering my beat on foot or by bicycle means I am available to be stopped and spoken to by any member of the public. This community engagement allows me to find out the needs of our community so I can then tailor my day to fit these in and work towards tackling issues that are causing the community concern. These local issues vary from village to village and can be anything from antisocial behaviour to parking related problems. The encounters I have with the public are some of the most enjoyable parts of my day and are also key to my role as they can provide me with information that’s most important in fighting crime. We call this community intelligence so look out for contact points on the West Yorkshire Police website and find out where you can come and have a chat.
A typical day for me starts with a briefing where I learn of any incidents that have happened within the area, what tasks I will have for the day and also share any information with colleagues that may assist them whilst they are out on patrol. Then it’s straight onto my beat where I will visit schools, shops or local groups, patrol problem areas or visit victims of crime. In one day I aim to patrol as much of my beat area as possible. I complete my tour of duty by updating incidents that I have dealt with.
From time to time I will also attend multi agency meetings with partners such as local councillors or KNH. Being a PCSO is most enjoyable and I am finding the role very exciting and rewarding.. I enjoy the different challenges and experiences the role brings as well as being part of a community in the knowledge that I am helping to make a difference to it.
If you wish to contact me either leave a message on 01484 436855 or email me on firstname.lastname@example.org or stop me whilst on patrol for a chat.

Early hints of spring At the start of a new year spring seems like a really long way off. But keep your eyes peeled in January and February - Mother Nature leaves some clues to show that change is in the air and spring will soon be on the way!
These are the male flowers of the hazel tree. They’re sometimes called lambs’ tails.
One of the earliest bulbs to flower. Look out for them in damp woods and by streams.
These pop up early to get as much light as possible before the tree canopy closes over.
The elder is one of the first trees to sprout leaves. Look out for its dark red buds bursting open.
Spot primroses in woods, meadows and hedgebanks, where they like damp and shade.
Look out for these shiny yellow flowers and heart-shaped leaves covering woodland floors.
Birds building nests
Keep your eyes peeled for blackbirds and rooks carrying materials for nest-building.
Listen out for birds like the song thrush tweeting that spring is on the way.
Look for balls of jelly in ponds, ditches and slow-moving streams. The black specks are eggs.
