Welcome to the Autumn issue of your Huddersfield Magazine. s you can see, it’s a bumper edition with even more pages of great features to keep you interested and informed.

A

If you’re looking for our usual special offers, don’t panic! You will find them on page 29, along with a helpful listing of all the bargains on offer in town centre restaurants.

M&S

We have a bit of an interiors theme going on, with ideas for the dining room, some How To tips on colour in any room, and our Bargain to Binge page focusing on how to change the look of your home without necessarily breaking the bank. Food is also a big topic this issue. We’ve got delicious dinner party recipes, and our Top Ten Money Saving Tips will show you how to reduce your food bill without making sacrifices. And it wouldn’t be the Huddersfield Magazine without Peters the popular Real Restaurant Review, which features Ciao Bella.

Fine Dining Rooms ad news for restaurants (though that can be good news for us, as lunchtime and early bird specials proliferate). But good news for stores selling things we eat with (cutlery, glasses) and from (tables, plates).

We think not, but we also think that it’s not always necessary to go for black tie splendour - casual works just as well. Gone are the days when you had to Make An Effort every time, and that just seems to make it all the more fun when you do. Call us obsessive (some of our best friends do ... often) but when we do get out the best linen, silver, crystal and candelabra, we have a bit of a fetish for making all the cutlery line up level along the bottom ends (you know, kind of like the Queen does, but without the footmen in white gloves with little rulers).

“ ” Asymmetrical and slightly abstract organic patterns are all the rage, especially leaves.

Wedgewood Vera Wang Lace Strawberry Fair

But we are just as happy with colourful crockery, gorgeous glasses and lots of tea-lights scattered along a pretty table runner.

HUDDERSFIELD MAGAZINE

Cutlery tends to be smooth, sleek and unadorned, and glassware is the same. But strong colours in linens, candles and other accessories add interest and brighten up the whole event.

Times have changed, and living spaces are much more flexible these days. Think of all those mill conversions with their open plan kitchen/dining/living rooms. No need (or room) there for casual kitchen table and crockery plus separate dining table. You can use a nice wooden table for everyday, and who’s to know what’s under the tablecloth if you decide to disguise it for a special occasion? The fashion at the moment in crockery is pattern - but not in the old-fashioned willow pattern sense. If you do see willow pattern, it will be just a small section placed off-centre on an otherwise pure white plate, and it won’t necessarily be in any colour you might expect. Asymmetrical and slightly abstract organic patterns are all the rage, especially leaves. Even long-standing traditional firms are now not only using well-known designers, they are giving them free rein to come up with new and exciting designs. The end result is fantastic quality that is anything but boring. If you don’t believe us, head to Strawberry Fair and see for yourself!

Now we all know that when we have friends around, it’s not really on to eat from a tray in front of the telly. But is it true that we have lost the art of fine dining at home?

This issue we have a bit of an interiors thing going on, and we thought we might have a brief word about colour.

19/8/09

Page 8

f you look at the style magazines, you will see a riot of colour and pattern. But how often does that translate into real people’s real decorating schemes?

I

We have to live in our homes every day, so it’s easy to decide to play it safe with neutral colour schemes and very pale shades. That’s OK, but what’s wrong with picking out accents of colour with accessories? And bear in mind that they don’t always have to match - contrast will give maximum impact. We’ve all heard the rules: ‘blue and green should never be seen except with something in between’; ‘oooh, you shouldn’t wear pink if you have red hair’. And what we say is: ‘oh yeah, says who?’ Blue and green look fantastic together, and some shades of pink look fabulous on redheads (some shades of pink don’t look good on anyone, but that’s another story).

To paraphrase Jennifer Aniston in that ad, here’s the theory bit. The primary colours are red, yellow and blue. If you mix red and yellow, you get the secondary colour orange, and the missing primary colour - blue - is the complementary colour that will provide the strongest contrast to orange. Mix blue and red, and the resulting purple will contrast most strongly with yellow. And so on ... you get the picture. And when we say contrast, we don’t mean clash, we mean that they will really make each other stand out. Go on, try it - you’ll see what we mean straight away. Most colours have a bit of the other colours in, and if you play with those undertones you can have endless fun and everything you put together will look great. You know what we mean - yellowgreen, yellow and yellow-orange, or blue-green, blue and blue-purple. Add in a splash of a complementary colour, and it will look stunning.>

What strikes us as really ironic is that just as people are terrified of strong colours, they’re even more frightened by pure white! But it’s THE way to make a strong statement and still stay neutral - in fact no one will even notice that your colour scheme is neutral if it’s white. And there is nothing at all wrong with white - unless you have children or pets of course.

‰™aÄ?ßÄ wÖÁ™‰ÍÖÁj ”‰ …‹©` ´y?ˆ ¼¬´ l¼©ˆ|´¼©`

Be brave and go for it. Start small with a few accents of colour if you feel a bit uncertain. Go to the shops - there’s plenty of colour of every type around - and have some fun putting things together to see what happens. When you’ve decided to go for it, head for Thatcher’s Furnishings to have a carpet dyed to exactly match anything you want.

AN EXTENSIVE range of cosmetic and weight loss surgery is now available at the highly regarded Spire Elland Hospital, situated on the edge of the town. Our hospital has been established in the local community for over 24 years. We have 41 single ensuite rooms all with satellite television, and tantalising menu options to cater for all tastes. We pride ourselves on our clinical excellence and over 94% of our patients thought we were excellent or very good in 2008. Cosmetic Surgery With several highly experienced plastic surgeons based at the Elland hospital, patients receive only the finest care with all surgery carried out to high standards. The Elland hospital is well renowned for its cosmetic procedures with the most popular being breast enlargement. Other available procedures include facial cosmetic work such as facelifts, nose reshaping and eyelid surgery, tummy tucks, liposuction and breast reductions. The hospital is also highly experienced in non-surgical facial procedures such as fillers and anti-wrinkle injections all performed by your consultant, in a safe, clean hospital environment. Weather you choose surgical or non-surgical treatments pre and post-operative care is always guaranteed to be with the consultant you choose. Cosmetic surgery continues to form a large part of the work of Spire Elland Hospital and for nearly 25 years thousands of patients have experienced highly successful procedures, making them feel much happier with their overall appearance.

The hospital is currently one of the first in the region to offer the Macrolane system of breast enhancement which uses fillers instead of conventional implants. Cosmetic surgery is no longer just the preserve of the rich and famous. Growing numbers of women and men are opting to reap the rewards for themselves. Weight Loss Programme If you are very overweight, losing weight can change your life. Weight loss surgery (also known as obesity surgery or bariatric surgery) in the form of gastric by-pass, intragastric balloon or gastric banding may be the solution for you. Spire Elland Hospital offers safe and effective weight loss surgery and is your local private hospital. Our weight loss surgery programme is stringently carried out to the same criteria as the NHS and in accordance with NICE (the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence) guidelines. Research shows that for those people who meet the criteria, weight-loss surgery can be extremely effective, particularly alongside advice and help from dieticians and councillors. We provide ongoing dietary advice and support. Our dietitians, who are experienced in advising patients dealing with obesity, will provide you with advice and support throughout your weight loss journey – from your first appointment until long after your surgery. We can also arrange access to local weight loss surgery patient support groups.

Take your first step towards weight-loss and your improved lifestyle As well as cosmetic and weight loss surgery Spire Elland Hospital offers a full range of diagnostic tests and investigations as well as a full range of surgical procedures including hip and knee replacements, complex spinal and foot procedures, varicose veins and key hole hernia surgery to name but a few.

TimeTo MakeYourWill? Many people realise that they should make a will but just haven’t quite got round to it yet.There are many driving factors in the decision to make a will, lots of people put their affairs in order to make things easier for their family in the event of their death. Others may do it to take advantage of legitimate tax saving schemes.Without a will you risk leaving your spouse, partner or family with uncertainty and increased stress at an already difficult time.

There are many other reasons for putting a will in place, including the ability to nominate guardians of your minor children, and to provide for children of an earlier marriage. In addition, you can make gifts to friends or other bodies, or to charities, where you can specify the purpose(s) to which the funds should be put.

Those without a will at the time of death die intestate.This leaves the law to then dictate how the estate is distributed. A maximum of £400,000 goes to the surviving wife or husband, however if there are children this maximum drops to £250,000 which includes the marital home. Making a will allows you to specify exactly who receives what from your estate.

Although many are aware of the issues outlined here, they haven’t yet made a will.To avoid the uncertainty, contact Chadwick Lawrence today. The wills and probate team deals with wills promptly and you can be assured that, when you pass on, your estate will be administered according to your own wishes.

Under UK law there is no such thing as a common law wife / husband, therefore should you die unmarried your long term partner would have to make an application in court for an award out of your estate.This can lead to disputes and potentially high legal bills. A will also immediately hands the power to run your business over to your executors allowing them to handle the day to day running of the company, for example paying the wages. Without a will, your personal representatives will need to apply to the probate registry and wait for the necessary authority, possibly affecting the business. Another point worth mentioning is that home made or store bought‘Do It Yourself’wills can often be invalid or inappropriate especially if your affairs are not straightforward, again leading to potential legal disputes.

Independent Huddersfield

Bags of style

Here we are with the first of a series of exciting new features to make sure you know just who all the independents are in Huddersfield and where to find them.

W

e’re always going on about how many independent shops we have here in the town centre, but we are sometimes asked exactly where they all are. After all, the high street shops are easy enough to find (being on the high street, natch) but some of these are pretty well tucked away.

For up to the minute designer items, you are spoiled for choice, with Kitten Heels on Byram Street, Pixie Pop&Posh on Queen Street and Pink Cadillac on Market Walk. They each have their own unique feel, and you will quickly find out which of them suits your style best.

So read on and find out just how many different places you can go to get bags - whether handbags or luggage - from small shops with that personal touch. These are places that will stock those more uncommon brands, places where you can find that special piece and be sure that you won’t then bump into ten other people carrying the same one.

High quality, top end brands are the forte of Cellini in Standard House and Peters Fashions on King Street. Both these shops have a good stock of ‘standards’ - those bags that will last for more than a fashion moment - alongside more quirky styles. Shaw & Hallas in Market Walk are well-known for their shoes and their fitting service, but they also stock a good selection of handbags and briefcases that is definitely worth a visit.

Revival 23A Westgate

HUDDERSFIELD MAGAZINE

At the dressier end of the spectrum make sure you visit International and Mysterium conveniently located side-by-side in Standard House - and Cinderella at Le Bonnet in Station Street. At International you will be able to find a complete outfit, and at Cinderella at Le Bonnet you can even hire a hat to go with it! Last but not least, Huddersfield can even provide plenty of choice when it comes to fashionable vintage. Both Revival on Westgate and Magic in the Byram Arcade stock handbags - often beautifully made, in leather with silk linings which are true, unique one-of-akinds. And the Open Market on a Tuesday or Saturday is also well worth checking out. If you have never been to one (or more) of these shops, now is the time to give them a try! And even if you have been before, make sure you go again because their stock is constantly changing and you never know what fantastic stuff you will find

Shaw & Hallas 9-13 Market Walk

Another shop that’s well known for something else is Strawberry Fair, though in their case it’s china, crystal and wedding lists! Yes, that’s right, they have branched out radically in recent times, and now have - among many other things - a range of really unusual bags (in a good way) to choose from.

Skin Deep Beauty Here’s another in our new series on beauty treatments, where three of our extended team try out therapies and let you know what they think. This issue we have been in and around Huddersfield testing massages - yes, once again it’s hard work but we do it for you! We do love a massage, and reading what our reviewers thought, it certainly seems that you are spoiled for choice in Huddersfield. So have a read, and see if you end up as envious as we did! BhS

The Powder Room 82a John William Street 01484 435552 Babbling brooks, birds singing, warm fragrant atmosphere, relaxing piano music. Can I really be in Huddersfield town centre? This is the ambience created by a small, new venue designed for pampering and catering for all the beauty needs you could possibly wish for. At the Powder Room, Zanilla offers a huge range of beauty treatments in a cosy, luxurious environment which she has tastefully decorated and filled with lovely smells and candles. I booked a full body massage after work on a Friday and was well rewarded with a deep and relaxing treatment which included gorgeous aromatherapy oils and hot stones. Zanilla was friendly and attentive, and provided a very personal service, including particular attention to my back problem. She took care to avoid the painful area and made sure that I was comfortable at all times. I have had massages elsewhere and it always surprises me how a slight, gentle person can apply such strength and intensity.The massage was deep and relaxing but without being so intense that I felt wiped out afterwards. The hot stones were a new experience for me and a very smooth light feeling. Not at all what I had expected. The atmosphere was relaxing, with music and subdued lighting and the whole experience felt very personalised and unhurried.An added bonus is the heated bed which is a great idea for those of us who feel the cold easily. Zanilla finished by offering a welcome glass of water and some aftercare tips about how to spend my evening - have a light meal, drink plenty of water, make sure you relax! The Powder Room is at an end of town that is a bit remote from shops and workplaces. But it’s only just past St George’s Square and the railway station, so I hope that this does not prevent people visiting this great little place. Maggie (age 56)

My first impressions on contact were excellent.The telephone was answered quickly and efficiently and the different massages available to me were explained. I opted for the back, neck and shoulder massage.

Never having had a massage of any sort before, I was excited yet a little nervous about what I was letting myself in for.

On arrival I was pleasantly greeted and given a personal record card to complete. I wasn’t kept waiting at all.The therapist showed me to the treatment room, explained the process and waited outside until I was ready. The room was tastefully decorated in neutral light colours with good lighting. My therapist made sure I was comfortable and then explained the different blends of oils that could be used. I chose the soothing blend, which smelled lovely. The relaxing piano music playing in the background was appropriate and unobtrusive and added to the peaceful experience. The only thing that the room would have benefited from was a chair or a stool to place my clothing on.As there was nothing apparent I had to place them on the floor. Before the treatment started the therapist asked me if there were any particular areas that cause me problems so she could tailor the treatment to suit my needs.

The treatment room exuded calm and tranquillity with dim lighting, candles, scent and soft music. I was impressed to note that a bowl containing floating flowers and petals had been placed on the floor below the couch - a lovely touch so you aren’t staring at the carpet. I was asked if there was any part of the body I would like to concentrate on - in my case the upper back.As soon as the first hot stones touched my back I knew I was in for a treat - it was just so relaxing and the intense, focussed warmth felt wonderful as the massage got underway.

The treatment was lovely - the oils smelled glorious, the room was the perfect temperature and the music remained as soothing as the treatment. The therapist was professional and thorough.The right amount of chat in the beginning made me feel comfortable and at ease and then allowed me to relax into the experience.

Afterwards I was allowed as much time as I needed to come round and advised to drink plenty of water when I got home, before once again resting for a while in the relaxation room.

After 30 minutes, at the end of the treatment the therapist ‘blotted’ the oil to remove excess residue, which made getting dressed again much less messy.

I was very impressed with Alexandra House, and the hot stone massage itself. It certainly relieved the tension in my neck and upper back, as well as leaving my skin silky soft. I left feeling stress free and invigorated - just in time for a busy weekend away!

I was then told to relax on the treatment bed whilst my therapist fetched me a glass of water to sip. I was under no pressure to hurry; she suggested I take my time getting ready to leave and explained all the aftercare issues. Andrea (age 40)

HUDDERSFIELD MAGAZINE

Owner Maxine Stead explained the full body hot stone massage I was to receive - using smooth volcanic stones that are heated in water then applied to the body to give deep penetrating heat to the muscles during the massage.

My therapist was very attentive, always checking the pressure being applied wasn’t too much for me and that I wasn’t too warm - she had noted I suffer from hot flushes. By the end of the treatment I was so chilled I was very nearly asleep - apparently a very common sensation!

It was a thoroughly relaxing and enjoyable experience.

I arrived very early and was greeted by a friendly staff member who showed me into the downstairs relaxation room, where I filled in the client medical questionnaire.

Pleased Our profile this issue features popular (and now famous after his television appearances!) chef Barrington, proprietor of Caribbean restaurant Discovery Bay.

tomeet... . . . Barrington Douglas at Discovery Bay orn and bred in Huddersfield, Barrington decided at an early age that he wanted to run his own restaurant. He started cooking with his mum at the age of 12, but it took him a long time to realise his dream.

B

“I grew up on a pretty tough estate and spent a lot of my youth fighting,” he says. “But I’m not ashamed of that. I did grow out of it, and it means that I know what I’m talking about when I work with excluded kids these days. And they respect me for that.” Barrington spent 20 years in the construction business, always saving and aiming for the day when he would be able to open his restaurant. And on September 1 this year Discovery Bay celebrates its 3rd birthday. “Part of me can’t believe it’s been that long, and another part feels like it’s been forever!” Barrington, who is 43 and married with two sons of 7 and 4, says that he’s tired all the time but has never been happier. “I love it even more than I ever thought I would.” Never one to let the grass grow under his feet, Barrington has more than one branch to the business. “I started the outside catering for two reasons,” he explains. “First, it helps out at quiet times, like holiday periods, when the restaurant isn’t as busy. And second, it gets new customers for the restaurant when people taste the food at an event and decide they want to come back for more!” Profile-raising has always been a part of Barrington’s business plan, and he has certainly done a lot. In his first year, he had already won Metro’s award for Best Ethnic Restaurant 2006. This was closely followed in 2007 by an invitation to cook for the Queen’s cousin at Harewood House, which led to an appearance on the BBC.

“We have even had visitors from Canada, who had come to stay with family in Leicester and said that they really wanted to go to this restaurant that they had seen on TV.” “And that means it’s not just good for me and my restaurant, it’s also bringing new people into Huddersfield to enjoy the town and hopefully spread the word about what a great place it is.” As if he’s not busy enough, Barrington also works at a school for excluded children, teaching them about health and hygiene and basic cooking skills. He also talks to them about his background, and how he turned his life around.

In 2008 he won Male Entrepreneur of the Year at the Yorkshire Black Enterprise Convention run by Business Link. And this year has seen him spend a month filming in the Caribbean with Gary Rhodes for a series of programmes on television.

He explains: “I tell them that it’s not over for them. If you work hard and have a good attitude you can overcome anything. I also take along some of my staff, particularly the girls, and they give the same message with their stories.”

“There was a nationwide search for two sous chefs, and I think about 20,000 applied,” says Barrington. “A friend of mine saw something about it and said I should give it a go, so I did.”

“I’ve always made a point of training young people up. Everyone starts as a pot-washer, but my first pot-washer is now my second chef and others are coming up behind him.”

“It was a fantastic experience, and I do still keep in touch with Gary.We speak every couple of weeks - he’s a bit of a mentor for me.”

He adds: “What I really want you to include in this profile is the credit that’s due to the team. The story of Discovery Bay isn’t just the story of Barrington Douglas. There is no way we would still be here and so successful if it wasn’t for every single person who works here.”

People come from around the country to visit Discovery Bay, having seen the programmes.

DiningTime We have shown you how to make your dining room look nice, now it’s time to think about what to serve your guests. We have been given a fabulous recipe for a full roast beef dinner by Haigh Butchers in Meltham, and we decided to give our dinner party menu a multicultural twist by asking local chef Barrington Douglas for recipes for starters and dessert. Barrington owns Discovery Bay, where he serves all the dishes you would expect in a Caribbean restaurant. As he points out, Caribbean food is the original fusion cuisine, with elements from all of the European, Indian and African inhabitants. And he has taken that a stage further, with a selection of specials on the menu that combine Caribbean and European for a thoroughly modern taste. For the full Caribbean experience, he’s given us a recipe for Jamaica’s national dish, Ackee and Saltfish, but he’s also included the more luxurious Garlic King Prawns in Pineapple for those who prefer it.

GARLIC KING PRAWNS IN PINEAPPLE

GINGER & LIME ZEST CHEESECAKE

Serves 6 3 pineapples 30-35 raw king prawns 6-12 langoustines, pre-cooked 3 cloves garlic, crushed unsalted butter parmesan cheese, grated crunchy salad and chopped chives to serve

Serves 6 1/2 packet gingernut biscuits unsalted butter 300gm mascarpone cheese zest and juice of 3 limes icing sugar to taste lime slices and berries to garnish fruit coulis to garnish (Barrington makes his own, but you can buy it ready-made)

1. Cut the pineapples in half and scoop out the centres. 2. Melt plenty of butter in a frying pan, add the crushed garlic and sauté briefly. Add the king prawns and fry until pink - about 2 minutes. Be careful not to overcook them or they will be tough. 3. Place some salad in each pineapple half, add 5-6 prawns each and drizzle over most of the garlic butter from the pan. Sprinkle over the parmesan cheese and place under the grill. Meanwhile, put the langoustines in the pan with the remaining butter and gently warm through. 4. Arrange some salad on each plate, place the pineapple halves on top and add 1 or 2 langoustines. Drizzle over the rest of the garlic butter and sprinkle with chopped chives.

1. Crush the biscuits with a rolling pin to form coarse crumbs. Melt a little butter and mix just enough with the crushed biscuits to bind together. 2. Mix the mascarpone cheese with the zest and juice of the 3 limes, and icing sugar to taste. 3. Place the crushed biscuits into individual metal cooking rings and press down to about 1/2” thick. Add about 3/4” of the mascarpone and lime mixture on top of the biscuits in the cooking rings and smooth over the top. 4. To remove the rings easily, give them a quick blast with a mini kitchen blowtorch which will just melt the cheese mix slightly and allow the metal rings to slide off. 5. Garnish with lime slices and your chosen berries, drizzling the coulis onto the plate and finishing with a dusting of icing sugar.

ROAST BEEF & YORKSHIRE PUDDING Serves 6-8 Preparation: 15 mins Cooking at Gas Mark 4-5, 180-190°C, 350-375°C Rare: 20 mins per 450g (1lb) + 20 mins Medium: 25 mins per 450g (1lb) + 25 mins Well done: 30 mins per 450g (1lb) + 30 mins ROAST BEEF 2.7kg (6lb) lean rib of beef, boneless rib or topside joint 15ml (1tbsp) English mustard powder salt and pepper 1 small red onion, peeled and cut into quarters 1 bulb garlic, cut in half widthways YORKSHIRE PUDDINGS 175g (6oz) strong plain flour pinch of salt 2 large eggs, beaten 5ml (1tsp) fresh thyme leaves 300-400ml (10-14oz) milk 30ml (1tbsp) sunflower oil or beef dripping GRAVY 25g (1oz) plain flour 450ml (3/4pt) good, hot beef stock, home-made if preferred, or water 300ml (1/2pt) full-bodied red wine

1. Score the skin of the joint, pat dry with kitchen paper and rub mustard over the surface. Season with salt and pepper. 2. Place the joint on a metal rack in a large roasting tin, add the onion and garlic. Open roast for the calculated cooking time, basting occasionally with the juices. If the bottom of the tin seems dry, add a little beef stock or water. 3. One hour before the end of cooking prepare the Yorkshire pudding. In a large bowl sift the flour and salt. Make a well in the centre and whisk in the eggs, thyme and milk to form a smooth batter, the consistency of double cream. Cover and leave to rest in the refrigerator for 30 minutes. 4. Increase oven temperature to Gas Mark 7, 220°C, 425°F, put oil or beef dripping in a 12hole muffin or Yorkshire Pudding tin and preheat in the oven for 5 minutes. Re-whisk the batter, adding extra milk if required, and pour into a jug. Remove the hot tin from the oven, evenly pour the batter into each hole, and cook for 30-35 minutes until golden brown and crisp. 5. For the gravy, spoon off excess oil from the tin, leaving about 30ml (2tbsp) of the juices. Place the roasting tin over a medium heat and sprinkle over the flour. Stir well with a small whisk or spoon, add a little stock and stir again, scraping the base of the pan to release any sediment. Add the remaining stock, wine and meat juices from the plate, adjust the seasoning and simmer for 8-10 minutes, stirring occasionally or until reduced to a wellflavoured gravy. Strain before serving.

This dish can also be made with topside, rolled sirloin or silverside - ask your butcher. Round off the whole meal with Mrs Darlinton’s Horseradish sauce available from George Haigh Butchers in Meltham.

Top Ten Money Saving Tips: Food Right now everyone is making sure they know just how much they are spending, and food shopping is one area where a bit of planning can see bills come right down. We’ve put together our top ten tips to show you how.

13:22

Page 27

1. Stop wasting food Write down menus for the week, make a shopping list, and only buy what’s on it. Even better, shop daily for exactly what you need. Go to Queensgate Market any day and the Open Market on Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays for fresh fruit and veg, meat and fish. And don’t forget the butchers’ shops on Station Street and New Street! 2. Don’t buy ready meals - and that includes lunch! Three reasons: one, they tend to be full of fat, salt and additives; two, they don’t taste anything like as nice as home cooking; three, they are expensive. It’s a myth that cooking a meal from scratch takes a long time - we can cook most dinners in 45 minutes from start to finish. And how long does it really take to make a sandwich? 3. Eat seasonal foods Eating food that’s in season helps the environment by keeping food miles down, and supports British farmers. Plus, food that’s in season is food that there is plenty of ... and that means it’s less expensive. 4. Eat less meat Or buy cheaper cuts full of flavour, and give them long cooking for melt-in-the-mouth tenderness. Make a stew, bung it in a slow cooker before you go to work, and your dinner will be ready for you when you get home - thus helping with Top Tip Number Two! 5. Prepare your own veg Do you really not have enough time to peel and cut up a few carrots? Would it not be better to buy only as many carrots as you need, instead of buying a bag of carrot sticks and throwing half of them away? (Clue: see Top Tip Number One above.) 6. Stock up your freezer Just think how wonderful it would be if you were only ever 15 minutes away from a home-cooked meal. Well you can be - it’s as easy as making two (or more) times as much as you need. Pasta sauce, chilli, soup ... they are all ideal. You’re already doing the work so why not do a big batch and freeze the rest? 7. Start a store cupboard Or if you already have one, stock it up! Your store cupboard should contain all the non-perishable items you use on a regular basis. Store cupboard items are the only other things you should be buying if they are on offer but not on your shopping list (yes, it’s back to Top Tip Number One). 8. Shop around It’s convenient to do a one-stop weekly shop at a supermarket, and you will bag some bargains. But you may well end up paying over the odds for the rest of your shopping. Shopping at markets and in small butchers’ and greengrocers’ shops can mean big savings - and you can also get advice from experts on trying new things. 9. Buy the basics In the supermarket, look out for ‘basic’ lines, which are often not much different from premium brands. The label might not be as pretty, but what’s inside is just as good for you and at a fraction of the price. 10. Use up your leftovers Even Sainsburys has jumped on this bandwagon, with its leftovers recipes on TV! So think twice before you throw food away - and we’re back to Top Tip Number One again ...

Holmfirth Whether you are on a weekend break, visiting just for the day or lucky enough to live on the doorstep, a veritable feast of delights awaits you in Holmfirth.

orld famous as a TV location, the town has much to offer - and not just to the devoted fans of the BBC’s Last of the Summer Wine who travel hundreds, even thousands of miles to follow in the footsteps of their favourite characters.

W

Ask a cross section of visitors what has impressed them most about Holmfirth and the surrounding area, and chances are more than a few will mention the splendour of the Pennine hills, the spectacular views over the Holme Valley and quaint, narrow streets steeped in history. Others will tell you what a pleasant surprise it was to see so many traditional small shops and galleries, restaurants, pubs, café bars, bistros, cafes and tearooms all within a couple of square miles. Many of the town’s independent retailers have been meeting the needs of local and visiting shoppers for generations. Fresh fruit and vegetables, meats, bread and cakes, clothes and shoes, crafts and toys, cards and gifts, you’ll find all of these and much more besides.>

There is a weekly market on Thursdays, also a Saturday craft and food market and a farmers’ market on the third Sunday of the month. The last weekend in September is now firmly established as one of the busiest times of the year thanks to the huge success of the Holmfirth Food and Drink Festival, renowned for its fun and friendly atmosphere, with events ranging from taster sessions of local produce to cookery demonstrations, talks and tours, special menu promotions and much more.

20/8/09

If you would like to explore the area on foot, the Holme Valley Riverside Way is ideal - a linear walking route following the River Holme from Magdale, through Holmfirth and Honley to Digley Reservoir, six miles in all. Wherever you go in the Holme Valley, whatever your interests, you’ll find no shortage of things to do and places to go. Helpful, friendly tourist information staff will be happy to point you in the right direction. Phone 01484 222444 or e-mail holmfirth.tic@kirklees.gov.uk

Now in its fourth year, the festival is a truly mouth-watering experience for anyone who appreciates good food and drink. A park and ride scheme will be in place on both days - look for the signs on the way into Holmfirth. Dates: 26 -27 September. To find out more, contact Marie Wilson on 01484 225852 or visit www.holmfirthfoodanddrinkfestival.com ‘Wine’ of the finest vintage continues to be the first taste of Holmfirth for thousands of visitors from near and far. The challenge for the valley’s business community is to encourage sightseers to take a closer look at what the town has to offer, to extend their stay or plan a return visit. Short breaks - weekend or midweek have become especially popular with a good choice of B & B guest houses, self catering accommodation, a hotel in the heart of Holmfirth and others slightly further afield.

A Super Start Choosing good nursery education is a major decision for all parents, keen to get the best possible start in life for their children.

T

he Huddersfield area is rich in excellent nursery and pre-school education provision. Many local villages have their own nurseries, catering for both local children and for parents who may work in the area and need full or parttime nursery provision for their youngsters. Parents often choose their nursery education from wordof-mouth referrals from friends or family members who have been happy with the nursery their own children attended.

You need to consider the size of the nursery, its indoor and outdoor facilities, food provision, location, proximity to home or work - all important factors. All nurseries will invite prospective families for a visit so they can see the facilities for themselves.

Make sure your children get ‘a super start’ in life.

OPEN STUDIOS 2009 Jamie Fros

It’s that time again, when artists and makers throughout Kirklees will be throwing open the doors of their studios and workshops, and welcoming the public in. OST offers a rare chance to see nationally recognised, local creative talent at work and, now in its sixth year, has expanded from its Huddersfield roots into North Kirklees.

H

t

The talent on display includes jewellers, ceramicists, designers, textile artists, painters, photographers, fine artists, sculptors, print makers and many more.

Jana Do

stalova

This year there are two separate weekends the first one, 19 and 20 September will once again feature studios in and around Huddersfield. Look out for venues as far afield as Marsden and Denby Dale, and as close as just the other side of the ring road.

And it’s the perfect time to have a go yourself! There is a full programme of hands-on workshops in lots of different media ... and who could resist one called Pimp My Ballgown? Certainly not us (and we don’t even own a ballgown)!

HOST OPEN STUDIOS: GRAND OPENING HUDDERSFIELD UNIVERSITY 18 SEPTEMBER 6PM - 9PM

The second weekend on 26 and 27 September sees artists in Mirfield and Batley taking part. The West Yorkshire Print Workshop in Mirfield has been open at previous HOST weekends, but this will be the first year for the others. With 63 artists in 27 different venues letting us into their private spaces, this is the perfect time to go round, see where and how they work, and chat to them about what inspires them. It’s also the ideal opportunity to buy something special, or even to commission work that will be truly unique.

T

he historical arcade, home to a wide array of shops and cafés/ restaurants, is one of the town’s architectural gems. In recent years Byram Arcade has enjoyed a facelift and now enhances the town’s shopping options with authentic Victorian arcade splendour. Housed over three floors the shops are many and varied, selling an ever-increasing wide range of goods and services. It’s great place to browse for individual shopping, gift ideas and much more, and after all that shopping, why not take the weight off your feet and enjoy a coffee or lunch at one of the arcade’s dining establishments.

COLNE VALLEY

This elegant and much loved Victorian arcade was built in 1880 and 1881 by the architect W H Atkinson. It was acquired by the former Huddersfield Corporation in 1920 and refurbished by Kirklees Council over a period of several years.

JUST

CRUISIN’ We know that Huddersfield isn’t exactly a port town (don’t think Aspley Basin really counts), but we do lift our heads and look at the outside world from time to time. hen you hear the words ‘we’re going on a cruise’, what springs to mind? If it’s all about black tie dinners at the captain’s table and intimidating poshness, think again! You can still find that kind of cruise, but there are plenty more around that are much more informal and relaxed.

W

take a whale-spotting cruise up towards Alaska, or just head for the Caribbean and relax among the many islands. If you have all the time in the world, use it to go on a world cruise - what a way to travel! If time is a bit shorter, fly to wherever you fancy and explore for a week, or two ... or more. If it’s luxury you want, board the Queen Mary 2 and head for New York, then choose whether to sail or fly back.

Increasingly, cruise companies are offering an alternative to package holidays, with all-inclusive prices and incentives for families If it’s all about like free passage for chilblack tie dinners dren and baby-sitting services.

at the captain’s table and intimidating poshness, think again!

And you don’t have to fly half way around the world either (unless of course you want to!). The Examiner regularly features pages of cruises in the Mediterranean, and among the Scandinavian fjords, often departing from ports in the UK.

There are packages on all levels, for any length of time, and for all interests. Cruise the Mediterranean with guided stops at ancient historical sites, fly to the west coast of Canada or the USA and

And if you are really strapped for time and cash but just need to sleep on the ocean waves, you can always take a mini-cruise from Hull to Bruges!

We have to say that what we have always fancied is an old-fashioned cruise down the Nile. Think Agatha Christie’s Murder on the Nile and you will know what we mean. And it is still possible to go on that type of cruise - but it won’t be at an old-fashioned price! Cruises are rapidly gaining in popularity, so if you are thinking about it don’t leave it too late or they may all be booked up

It’s ‘Economy’ Drive Time

eco Volvo C30

In the second of our new features on cars and motoring, we have been checking out the most economical vehicles on your behalf.

Citroen C4 We love the new Citroens’ looks, and the C4 is probably our favourite. Stylishness comes at some cost of comfort for taller passengers though, with a narrow interior towards the top. Attention to detail inside is impressive, though the instrument panel could get confusing. The C4 provides a smooth quiet ride. There are excellent safety and security features, and overall standard equipment is good with plenty of extras available. Citroen are offering lots of discounts on an already attractive price.

Volkswagen Golf

W

e decided to ignore the tiny ‘city cars’ that are only any use if there are only two of you, and look at family compacts instead.

Fun, comfortable, great around town and on long trips. This isn’t the cheapest on our list, but it’s worth the price. It holds its value well, and the running costs won’t break the bank. The interior plastics are nice and soft, including those that are hidden from view. It has lots of safety features and good security, and is one of the best in this class in terms of space for both passengers and their luggage.

And we didn’t just go for the cheapest to buy or the ones that use the least petrol. There are other factors to take into account when you are looking for a vehicle that offers great value for money. We asked questions like: What exactly do you get for your money? How much will it cost to run - not just petrol, but parts and servicing? How long will it last? And finally, how much will you get when you come to sell it on? Fortunately, there are plenty of dealerships in and around Huddersfield to offer a great choice. And here are our top five, with petrol consumption ranging from 62.8 to 72.4mpg (combined) and list prices from £9,895 (basic model) to £25,740 (top of its range). We are struggling to make our own minds up, so we’ve put them in alphabetical order!

Volkswagen Golf

Citroen C4

Ford Focus Fun to drive, with good acceleration. It’s also reliable and comfortable, and offers lots of space for people and luggage. With plenty of extras, a relatively low price and reasonable running costs, it looks like a good deal - but it won’t get the most at resale. A 5-star Euro NCAP crash test rating demonstrates the safety, and security is good as well. Don’t be deceived by the sloping roofline - there’s plenty of headroom in the back.

Skoda Fabia Estate The biggest on our list, this is still small enough to be good in town. It’s really roomy, though tight in the middle in the back - suitable for kids or short journeys only. The diesel is noisy, but otherwise it’s a nice quiet ride. Skoda has an excellent reputation for reliability and customer service, and above-average resale values. Safety ratings are good, and it gets 5 stars on anti-theft. Low running costs and a low price make the Fabia hard to resist. Volkswagen Golf

Volvo C30 The C30 tops our list for low petrol consumption, but is more expensive to buy. However, Volvos hold their value so you will get more back when you sell it on. They are also always reliable and safe, but this one is pretty small. There is lots of room in the front, and plenty for two adults in the back - but you won’t squeeze in a third even for short trips. The interior fittings feel expensive, and are built to last. Lots of standard equipment, with plenty more available on upgrades. So there you have it - plenty of food for thought. You’ll need to weight up the pros and cons of the different models, and then head off to one of Huddersfield’s many dealerships for a test drive or two. Volvo C30

abseil at the Galpharm

Our second sports feature comes near the start of the new football season, so we thought we would have a chat with an expert on the game. We decided to go for a slightly different perspective, so we called on Marcus Middleton, the chairman of the Huddersfield Town Supporters Association. The HTSA started last summer, evolving from the coming together of three separate groups who realised that they were all doing very similar things. The club also felt it would be easier to communicate with just one group of fans. Marcus says: “We all want to support Town, and see them play well and hopefully gain promotion. But we also feel that the club needs to look after its supporters!” “A lot of fans just turn up to the matches, and that’s great, but we think it’s important to get involved as well. Membership only costs £5 and that’s really just to cover the costs of running the HTSA - our website www.htsa.co.uk shows what we do.” The supporters and the club are now working well together, with HTFC chairman Dean Hoyle and his team regularly attending meetings to take questions and chat to the members. Marcus confirms: “Dean is a life-long Town fan, and that really makes a difference.” Their most recent joint effort saw Dean, Marcus and 20 others cycling 260 miles in 4 days to the match at Southend on Saturday 6 August. “It wasn’t the only way of getting there, there was the usual coach we organise for supporters,” says Marcus with a laugh. “The cycle ride was to raise money for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance, the club’s sponsor charity. It was a huge success, we raised a total of £51,000 and money is still coming in. We also

46

did a sponsored abseil at the Galpharm on 1 August which raised about £2,800.” The Supporters Association is continuing to build its relationship with the club, maintaining links by making the recently retired player and icon Andy Booth Honorary Life President of the HTSA. Andy was delighted at the honour, saying: “I’ve always been incredibly grateful to the fans of Huddersfield Town for the way they have backed me in my career and I am really honoured to have been made Honorary Life President of the Supporters Association. It means a lot to me and the certificate will have pride of place in my house!” Long-term fan Patrick Stewart is a Vice President of the HTSA, as is Reece Dinsdale.

ÝÝݱ”‰‰~?™?™aŽjÄĝ¬±W”

This season the HTSA are again sponsoring a player, and drew young Irish midfielder James Berrett at a dinner on 27 July at the Galpharm, hosted by Town’s Commercial Director Sean Jarvis. “We want to do our bit to help Huddersfield Town get the promotion we think they richly deserve,” says Marcus. “That means doing whatever we can, from sponsoring a player to raising money for the sponsor charity, and letting the board know our views.” “And of course, turning up to as many matches as we can and showing our support for the players and the team!” To join the HTSA, visit www.htsa.co.uk or the portacabin in St Andrews car park at the stadium on a matchday.

What’s wrong with dentures? S

Dr Robin Warne of Huddersfield Dental Implants & Cosmetics tells us. ince 4500 years ago in Mexico dentures in one form or other have been worn. The most famous early dentures were worn by USA President George Washington whose teeth were reputedly made from wood but actually being made from more bizarre materials like hippopotamus and walrus ivory as well as other human beings teeth. How things have changed over the years. But still today dentures are worn by one in five of us.

So what’s wrong with dentures? No longer is it inevitable that once we start to loose teeth that we have to wear a denture which is the most destructive dental treatment option. Once we start with a single tooth denture how often it grows until eventually we have all our teeth on a plate and have full dentures. With implants we can add individual or small groups of teeth together and the remaining teeth are unaffected. Dentures are actually very destructive, even full dentures when we no longer have any teeth left. The force of biting against the denture crushes the bone and causes it to shrink, and over the years there becomes very little to hold the dentures in with, especially lower dentures. Implants come to the rescue again and very simple mini implants can be placed from as little as £350.00 each to hold a loose denture in place transforming the lives of people. Once again they can choose the foods they want to eat rather than just the foods they can eat. The largest single cause of health problems later in life is the inability to eat correctly, either the diet is modified because we can’t eat the foods we need to have a balanced diet or we swallow large pieces of food simply because we can’t chew them properly. Other options include standard implants to retain a denture or to replace the denture with fixed teeth which function very much like our previous natural teeth.

Dental Implants The most successful and predictable option of any kind of active dental treatment today, they can be nearly 10 times less likely to fail than a bridge over a 10 to 15 year period. Implants have been on the scene for about 40 years, although only becoming main stream in the last 10 years. Many of the early implants are still in place today 40 years later. The main benefit of implants over more traditional bridges is that they do not involve cutting into and damaging the neighbouring teeth. As well as not putting extra loading on the neighbouring teeth. They also maintain the volume of bone rather than allowing it to shrink away giving a longer lasting, often more aesthetic result.
