e Review

e Golden Ball by Luke Smith

On a brisk ursday evening my work colleague Kerrie and I, decided to head over to e Golden Ball, Kerrie has been on a number of occasions previously, but this was my first time and I was really looking forward to see what this traditional English pub was all about and to find out for myself what kept bringing Kerrie back – except gin and tonic of course. Only a 10 minute walk from the famous Ironbridge this is the perfect place to unwind after a busy day in the town. e exterior of the building is impressive. ere is plenty of parking and a picturesque garden. You can pop in just to enjoy a quick drink or if you fancy something tasty to eat, they serve in both the bar and the restaurant. You can feel the fantastic warm and friendly atmosphere as soon as you go in. We were greeted warmly and shown to our table for the evening. e restaurant is very charming and full of character, large oak tables and hidden coves which have been decorated to a very high standard. e waiter took our drinks order, as the driver for the evening I decided to go for a large diet coke and Kerrie had the evening off, so went for pink gin with Fever-Tree Mediterranean tonic water. e menu was displayed on a huge blackboard which was a nice traditional touch.

I understand why Kerrie keeps returning again and again - fantastic hospitality and sensational food. e Golden Ball will be somewhere that I too will be returning to very soon.

ere were so many starters to choose from homemade soup of the day to black pudding with belly pork or figs with honey and feta. I decided to have the Deep Fried Squid with garlic mayonnaise and Kerrie had the ‘Baked in the box Camembert’ - studded with garlic and rosemary with carrot and celery sticks served with warm bread. As always with Kerrie and I on food reviews, we share our dishes, as it’s a great way of trying more new things and this really gives us the best of both worlds. To start my squid was excellent, the batter enveloping it was light and fluffy with the perfect crunch to it, and the squid was very high quality – an absolutely terrific start to the evening. I’ve had squid many times but this exceeded my expectations. Kerrie found her camembert to be absolutely sensational and I have to agree. From start to finish, it was out of this world; the gooey cheese dipped with the warm bread and a hint of the garlic and rosemary were an amazing combination.

On to the main course. Kerrie opted for the Beer Battered Fish and Chips with mushy peas and tartar sauce and I 10 Eating Out

The Golden Ball Review_Double Page Editorial 18/10/2018 15:48 Page 2

went for the recommendation of Pork Loin Steak with a grain mustard sauce, sauté leeks, new potatoes, roast potatoes and vegetables. Kerrie thoroughly enjoyed her main course and wasn’t as forthcoming as usual when it came to the sharing part, I managed to steal a bite or two though - the chips were crunchy and cooked perfectly and once again the batter and fish were top class; proving that even a simple dish can be turned into a culinary master piece. My pork was also terrific; the tender loin was full of flavour and cooked to perfection, the grain mustard sauce, potatoes and vegetables made this was one of my all-time favourite dishes ever - in any restaurant. e toughest choice of the night was what to have for pudding. ere was the choice of Bread and Butter Pudding, Chocolate Fudge Cake or Pecan Pie. In spite of our rounded bellies, we decided we had room for pudding; let’s face it – there’s always room for pudding! We decided to share a Pecan Pie, which was extremely good; the crust was divine, the pecans were fantastic and the tangy orange coulis and ice cream it was served with took it to the next level - it made for the perfect end to a brilliant evening.

Our visit to e Golden Ball overall was second to none and now I understand why Kerrie keeps returning again and again - fantastic hospitality and sensational food. e Golden Ball will be somewhere that I too will be returning to very soon.

Wolverhampton Racecourse “SO MUCH MORE THAN JUST A RACECOURSE”...




Hundreds of visitors raced through the gates at Wolverhampton Racecourse this month to enjoy a fabulous full-card of racing followed by live music and entertainment.

On Saturday 22nd September, we celebrated the music of Swedish super group Abba in a true sing-a-long style. Guided by our fantastic live vocalists, and purpose-built TV Screen, the electrifying roar echoed around the room as guests sung to hits including ‘Mamma Mia’, ‘Waterloo’ and of course ‘Dancing Queen’.

Our evening entertainment continued on Saturday 20th October when one of the longest surviving Madness tribute band took centre stage to a sold-out crowd in our Ringside Restaurant. Formed in 1993, ‘One Step Behind’ the UK’s premier tribute act got everybody out of their seats as they enjoyed the band’s greatest hits including ‘House of Fun’ and ‘It Must Be Love’.

Live music at the racecourse is extremely popular and takes place every Saturday in the run up to Christmas – getting everyone in the party mood! With only a few shows left, and places limited, now really is the time to get your ticket before it’s too late.

Racing & Non-Racing Christmas parties begin on the 1st December, and our free January racing returns in the new year so there’s plenty to do over the next few months at the racecourse.

Ironbridge at Christmas An extra special occasion...

Erected in 1779 over the River Severn in Shropshire, the Iron Bridge was the first single span arch bridge in the world to be made of cast iron and was a turning point in British engineering. After cracks began to appear, a major restoration began back in 2017, with scaffolding and sheeting surrounding the bridge ever since. With the renovation of the Ironbridge completed, we are all excited about the big reveal. It has already been reported that the bridge will return to its original red/brown colour, following investigations which took place during the painstaking restoration by English Heritage, which cost £3.6 million pounds.

The Ironbridge Bookshop

New lighting has been added to the iconic structure, to illuminate the bridge. is will be one of the legacy projects that form part of Telford’s 50th birthday celebrations. So this year’s Christmas lights switch on will be an extra special occasion. You will be able to enjoy the Ironbridge in all it’s glory as well as some late night shopping - joining Father Christmas in the festivities. ere will be live music, a brass band, choir and Carol singing and of course a firworks display. Induldge in a cake and a glass of mulled wine out on the terrace at Number Nine, enjoy some tasty Fish & Chips from Ironbridge Fish & Chip Shop and browse for gifts at one of the lovely indepenent shops like e Ironbridge Bookshop, who offer new and second hand books. From 4.30pm to 8.30pm the wharfage will be closed to traffic into Ironbridge from the roundabout at the bottom of Madeley Bank to the White Hart pub on the Wharfage.

So many books, so little time... The Ironbridge Bookshop is an independent business, situated in the heart of Shropshire. We offer new and second hand books amongst treasured collectables.

A project to identify and find out about all 184 war dead named on the town Lychgate has brought families together, linked generations and uncovered more about the town’s history. e dedicated team of volunteers set out in 2016 not knowing anything about the people behind the names on the gateway to All Saints Church. ey now have a face to many of the names and a story of their life, showing some were from as far away as New Zealand. All the information found will be on display at an exhibition at e Gratitude Cafe from November 5 to 11 and a celebration event remembering these people will take place on Remembrance Day. Mary Rogers, of Wellington Remembers 1914-1918, said: “It is going to be the biggest Remembrance Day programme we have had in Wellington for some years. “ere will be a procession, a band leading 184 people representing all the people named on the Wellington Lychgate - these people will either be relatives or young people. “Each will carry a poppy which has a name plate with a picture on. “A biography of one of the 184 will be read and 12 books of all the research, a special limited edition print run, will be presented to local organisations including the Town Council, the library and Shropshire Archives. “We are really looking forward to it.” Wellington Town Council and e Rotary Club of Wellington have sponsored the commission of two big boards with pictures and details of all 184 names. ese will be put

up on the railings in the ground of All Saints Church. At the exhibition in the week prior to Remembrance Day there will be three digital displays, two facing the street and one inside e Gratitude Cafe in Duke Street. ere will also be wartime memorabilia like home comforts, replica medals, knitwear - to portray what it was like to be involved in the war. Mary added: “is project has been a huge undertaking for this small group of dedicated volunteers. “We are all very passionate about the project and excited to see it reaching a climax after what feels like a very long time. “After receiving Heritage Lottery Funding we spent many months pouring over war diaries, census details and listening to the stories of local people. “We hope many people will be interested to see the fruits of our labour and come to see the exhibition from November 5 and then come along to be part of the Remembrance Day event too, it is shaping up to be a very special occasion.” Before the event on November 11 Wellington Remembers 1914-1918 will also be involved in the First World War Showcase Day at Shirehall, Shrewsbury, on October 20. You can also see their work in digital format at Shropshire Archives after November 11.

Park Street Clinics Edit_Full Page Bleed New 16/08/2018 14:25 Page 1

Park Street Clinic Park Street Clinic is a medical aesthetic clinic based in the Shropshire market town of Shifnal. Providing a variety of nonsurgical aesthetic and advanced skincare and body treatments. For your peace of mind, all procedures are carried out by a GMC Registered doctor and an NMC Registered nurse. Treatments include :

w Anti-wrinkle injections w Lip enhancements w Dermal filler treatments w Non-surgical rhinoplasty w Body contouring with Lipocontrast

Injectable treatments start at just


(clinically proven permanent fat reduction)

w Thread vein and spider vein treatments wCellulite reduction w Super IPL hair removal w Acne & rosacea treatments w Mesotherapy w eDS Microneedling w Chemical peels w Aesthetic gynaecology

Now the summer is coming to a close, its a good time to start thinking about how you are going to care for your skin throughout the autumn and winter months.

So, what are the ideal treatments to have throughout the autumn and winter months to ensure our skin is healthy and looking even better next summer?

w Juvederm Volite

Juvederm Volite is the world’s first ever dermal filler that actually improves the hydration and quality of your skin. It effectively smooths and hydrates whilst simultaneously improving the texture, tone and brightness - improving skin health from within. Volite contains Hyaluronic Acid, a naturally occurring molecule made by our bodies that is responsible for water retention in our skin. Volite improves hydration and elasticity by stimulating your body’s own collagen production, leading to an improvement in overall skin quality. Volite can be used to smooth, hydrate and increase elasticity in the skin on your face, neck, decolletage and hands. A single treatment will leave you with smoother, radiant and hydrated skin. Results typically last 9-12 month. From £395.



Humans have had a problem with hair for thousands of years. Plucking, waxing and needle epilation are all temporary and needle epilation is only capable of treating one hair at a time.

Excess hair may be the result of medical conditions, but the pressure to remove it may be cosmetic. Cultural norms and peer group pressure often require the removal of hair in certain regions such as the face, axillae (armpits), legs and bikini line for women, and the chest and back for men. Our Super IPL treatment is 10 times faster than standard IPL. It is clinically-proven, safe and effective, giving long-term removal of unwanted hair and is effective on all skin types. Treatments start at just £30. Offer! Buy 5 sessions of IPL and get the 6th session free.

w eDS Dermastamp


The multi-award winning eDS dermastamp microneedling treatment is a firm favourite of ours. Using medical grade, German engineered microneedles, the device produces thousands of microneedle columns in the skin, which in turn stimulates the skin to naturally regenerate and repair itself. This treatment is idea for the treatment of fine lines around the delicate eye area and results are not only smoother, brighter rejuvenated skin, but it can also lead to an improvement in the appearance of acne scars and stretch marks. Single treatments start at just £120.

w Sun protection and SPF

We often think of protecting our skin from UVB when its sunny, but damaging UVA, infrared-A and visible light radiation is present everyday, all year round. They penetrate the cloud and even glass. High energy visible light (HEV) from our mobile phones and computer screens are also contributing to premature skin ageing. Therefore it is really important not to neglect your skin when it comes to protecting it. We recommend wearing a factor 50 SPF everyday throughout the autumn and winter months, such as Heliocare 360° which is proven to protect the skin from UVA, UVA and Infrared-A. Park Street Clinic are official stockists of Heliocare and Heliocare 360°.

We also need cat/pet bowls, cat toys and rabbit water bottles and hay racks due to our expansion to care for more animals.

Donations can always be dropped off at- The Brewery Inn, High Street, Coalport, Telford, TF87HZ. It is always best to call first on- 01952 581225 to check opening times.

Tasty Recipes_Double Page Editorial 30/08/2018 16:01 Page 2





& Chocolate Dip Method 1 - Add 350ml of boiling water into a jug, with the melted butter and vanilla extract. Place the flour and baking powder into a large bowl and add a pinch of salt. Pour in the contents of the jug and quickly beat with a wooden spoon until there are no lumps. Set aside for 10-15 mins. 2 - Mix the caster sugar and cinnamon together in a bowl. 3 - Fill a large deep saucepan one-third full of oil. Always take care when cooking with hot oil. Heat to 175C. Using a large star nozzle on a piping bag, fill with the dough and pipe the churros directly into the oil, snipping off with kitchen scissors. Make each churro about 10cm long. Fry until golden brown and crisp but watch out for air bubbles in the churros as they can explode, especially if the oil overheats or you use old flour. 4 - Once the churros are crisp and golden brown, remove them from the oil with a slotted spoon and drain on a kitchen paperlined tray. Carry on cooking the dough in batches. 5 - Coat the cooked churros with the cinnamon sugar as you go. To serve, toss with any remaining cinnamon sugar and serve with chocolate dipping sauce.


It is finally time to celebrate chocolate, as scientists have recently said that eating chocolate can actually be good for us! In moderation - 3 bars a month - one of life’s little pleasures can cut a person’s risk of heart failure by 13 percent. Natural compounds in chocolate called Flavonoids are believed to boost blood vessel health and help reduce inflammation. Don’t get carried away though, as people who eat chocolate daily can see their risk of heart failure increase by 17 percent.

CHOCOLATE Dipping Sauce is simple chocolate dipping sauce is easy to make, and deliciously naughty - Perfect with churros!

Ingredients 200g Dark Chocolate 100ml Double Cream 100ml Whole Milk 3 Tbsp Golden Syrup ½ Tsp Vanilla Extract

Method 1 - Break the dark chocolate up into chunks. 2 - Place the chunks of chocolate, along with the cream, milk, golden syrup and vanilla extract into a pan and gently melt together, on a low heat. 3 - Stir occasionally until you have a smooth shiny sauce. Keep warm on a low heat. Serve warm with fresh homemade churros, for an extra special treat that the whole family will love.

Taking audiences to the edge of our current understanding about the origin and evolution of our Solar System and the Universe, Professor Brian Cox Live 2019 offers a fascinating insight into the workings of nature at the most fundamental level. Whether an avid science reader or a total novice, Professor Cox makes challenging ideas accessible to all, exploring the vast, possibly infinite universe and our place within it from earth to the edges of the cosmos. Brian will once again be joined by co-host of e Infinite Monkey Cage and award-winning comedian Robin Ince to oversee an audience Q&A, giving fans the chance to ask any question they have.

His latest critically acclaimed BBC series, Forces of Nature, aired in 2016 whilst he recently once again co-hosted Stargazing Live. He holds two Guiness World Record titles for a science tour for his total sellout debut tour, which began in 2016.

Brian is perhaps the world’s foremost communicator of all things scientific. His innate ability to make highly complex matters enormously entertaining and easy to contemplate for the avid science bod or total novice alike has made his science television shows ground breaking in their audience reach and accessibility. e first-ever Professor Brian Cox Live tour was seen by over 150,000 people around the UK and Ireland.

Firework Phobia in Pets

Bonfire night is fast approaching, although for us this is an exciting time of year, the same cannot be said for our pets. Many animals will find the noise and flashes created from fireworks frightening and very stressful. There are several things that can be done to help keep our pets feeling calm and safe during this time, have a read through our advice and see what you can do help your pet. After all it’s not just for the one evening, firework season will continue over Christmas and New Year.

There are some basic things you can start with at home, including:

• Make sure all dogs and cats are kept inside, lock your cat flaps and keep all windows and doors tightly shut to prevent pets from escaping. • Keep curtains drawn and place on the TV and radio, this will help block out some of the sound and visual effects. • Create a den, our cats and dogs like to hide away to help make themselves feel more secure. Place in their favourite toys and something of yours, the familiar smells will help them a feel a little more at ease. You can create this den earlier so that your pet gets used to it. • Try to act normally! If they want to pace around a little and find new hiding spots let them. The more you stress around them, the more stressed they will become, if you are relaxed it will help them do so too. • It’s also a good time to make sure your pets identification details are up to date! Just in case they manage to escape. Check your microchip details, collars and tags to ensure that all the details are correct.

It’s not just our cats and dogs that get worried, don’t forget about your smaller pets too:

• This can include our rabbits, guinea pigs, rodents and birds! • If possible hutches/enclosures should be moved out of the open, whether this be a room in the house or just into a shed or garage. • If you are unable to move your pets hutch/enclosure cover over with blankets, this will help deaden the noise and block out the sight of the fireworks. You could also turn the opening of the hutch towards the fence/wall so it’s not facing the open garden. • Provide plenty of extra bedding to allow for effective burrowing, this will help them feel a little safer.

Sometimes these general precautions aren’t enough for our more nervous animals. There are lots of products on the market designed to help calm and relieve anxiety. These include Adaptil and Feliway products, that come in plug-in diffusers, sprays and collars. For more advice on which product might be best suited to your pets needs, please do not hesitate to speak to us at any of our Severn Edge Vet branches.

Also spare a thought for our wildlife this firework season! If you’re building bonfires check them before lighting to make sure there are no little friends hibernating inside. Make sure all firework rubbish is disposed of properly, if left around it can become a hazard.

Christmas Dining... Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not all trees, tinsel and fairy lights, Christmas is also a time of year for dinner parties and celebrating over eggnog and mulled wine - which also means setting the scene with a picture-perfect, rustic dining table. Rebecca Snowden, Interior Style Advisor at Furniture Choice, shares her 4 best ideas on putting together a warm, inviting dining setting that celebrates Christmas.

Trendy Tips to Style your Christmas Dining Table


Start with an excellent foundation: a good table. “Dark wood is perennially elegant and classic - look for a sturdy table that will stand the test of time, but also has interesting details, such as a charming pedestal or trestle,” advises Rebecca. And then layer on a bold, attention-grabbing centrepiece- something that gives the dining room a visual focus. This approach also reduces decor work, since it will do most of the heavy lifting. “This could be as simple as being artful about how food is arranged on the table, for a visual (and literal) feast. But for a change, it can be about what’s above the table and not on it. Rather than having decor take up space on the table, consider hanging the baubles and lights from the ceiling - this also has the effect of opening up the space, adding a sense of airiness, height and drama.”



Neutrals are always chic and a great starting point for any table setting- white and silver tableware are always on-trend- but the trick is in dressing it up. “For this time of year, setting a festive dining table just wouldn’t be complete without some glitz and shine,” says Rebecca. “Using brass and gold in strategic doses adds warmth and glamour in equal measure. Consider golden candle holders and even gold ribbons for the napkins as easy ways to integrate this into the overall look.”

An easy step to dressing up the dining table is by taking a leaf out of nature’s playbook – literally. “Natural elements are classic Christmas staples, so to update the style, it’s about being more adventurous and creative in the approach,” says Rebecca. “Even simple details like rosemary and cinnamon sticks can add an organic, chic touch to napkin arrangements, while wreath chandeliers are becoming a modern go-to look.” For a bigger and more dramatic take, why not combine the best of both worlds with a statement DIY: a hanging wooden branch centrepiece immediately adds character, visual texture, and festive impact to your dining room. “These creative touches are not just a subtle nod to the wild outdoors, but they’re also easy to craft and personalize as fun holiday activities.”

During this special time of year, Christmas feasts should be delicious – and pretty too! “Details go a long way, especially with the table setting,” Rebecca advises. “Get creative with unexpected prints, patterns, and colours on smaller elements like tableware and napkins. And as for colour: silver, blues and greys can lend a soft, luxe touch, while deeper hues like emerald and burgundy set the tone for a glamorous, festive meal. Neutral tones are also perfect as a background for more dramatic accent colours. Sunny shades like yellow provide a cheerful burst of creativity, while giving your space charm and personality. And when it comes to dialling up the comfort, layer in different textures. Think ements like a plush sofa, soft throws and even a fluffy faux fur rug for a huge boost in cosiness.”

Book Worms... A black country girl who loves to read. I don’t think I have ever loved and hated a book as much as this fantastic piece of work by Amy Reed. Not because I disliked the story, the writing was fantastic and the message of the book was extremely empowering, but because when I got to the end of the book, which was just last night, I felt so angry and frustrated. is isn’t a book I would typically choose to read, as I have said many of times, romance books are my thing. But, my resolution for this year is to broaden my reading tastes and read different styles of books. So, when I saw on Twitter the discussions surrounding this particular book, I knew I had to add it to my TBR pile. e Nowhere girls sees a new girl arrive in a corrupt town where she learns the girl whose room she now occupies, was ran out of town when she spoke out after being gang raped by the popular guys at school. Along with her two friends, they decide to form a group, e Nowhere Girls’, who are determined to change the way men treat females at their school and the attitude surrounding rape culture. I love the diversity of the three main characters. Grace, a quiet and shy girl whose mother is a pastor but was run out of their old town for her liberalist views, Rosina is Mexican and gay and has a tough home life as she struggles with her relationship with her mother, and Erin, who has Asperger’s and is hiding her own struggles and secrets. ey are three girls who you wouldn’t put together as friends, but their friendship is strong and

beautiful and it made me want to join their group. I think every girl reading this book will be able to relate to a part of each character, because I know I certainly did. I found the experts from ‘e Real Men of Prescott’ blog extremely difficult to read. e way this person spoke about women was downright disgusting and I was so upset and angry reading them. I think even more so because there are men who actually have these views. What this book made me realise, in quite an upsetting and shocking way, is you can’t always trust and rely on those who are meant to protect you. I found it awful how the Principal, Sheriff and almost every other person in authority were so eager to sweep the allegations under the carpet and blame e Nowhere Girls for being the problem. Victim blaming is rife in this book and unfortunately, this is the stark reality. If you read this book with the idea that justice will eventually be served at the end, you couldn’t be more wrong. At times the book makes for uncomfortable reading, but it’s realistic, honest, raw, but most of all empowering. is book is a fine example of what can happen when girls lay aside their differences and support each other, regardless of their opinions and backgrounds. It’s an example of what happens when girls finally realise that they deserve to be treated better and demand respect. is a book that every female should read. is book is so powerful and deserves five out of five stars.

A&E Closure_Full Page Bleed New 23/10/2018 09:56 Page 1

A&E Department Closure... “Give us more time” plea over PRH e Board of the Trust which runs Telford’s Princess Royal Hospital (PRH) is being urged to give more time for a rescue plan to stop the planned overnight closure of the hospital’s A&E department.

e plea comes from Telford & Wrekin Council leader Shaun Davies who is leading a range of initiatives across the community to help stop the closure.

• An online Government petition signed by more than 23,200 people • Lobbying of the Secretary of State for Health and NHS to intervene and stop the planned closure • A community appeal to refurbish three houses at PRH to help attract new junior and middle grade doctors to the hospital • A meeting with the Indian Consul General in Birmingham to see what can be done to help attract and recruit A&E doctors and nurses from India to work at PRH. • A public march on 4 November in Wellington to object to the planned closure of PRH’s A&E and for the Government to organise a rescue plan to stop it happening. Cllr Davies said: “e community is really coming together and is desperate to do all it can to stop the overnight closure of PRH’s A&E. “We are making good progress and coming up with some new ways that together we can support the PRH and help the hospital overcome its recruitment difficulties. “We must also keep the pressure on Government and the NHS because it is in their power to stop this planned closure now.

His call comes as e Telford and Shrewsbury Hospital Trust’s Board meets next week and is expected to set the date for the overnight A&E closure.

“I urge members of SaTH‘s Board– do not rush into a closure date. We are making huge progress and working flat out to help you find solutions.

Among the initiatives the Council has undertaken in the past two weeks to stop the overnight closure of PRH’s A&E include:

“Give us more time.”

Clever gadgets that can help you keep fit and healthy this winter... Winter is the season that can play havoc with health and fitness, from over-eating calorie laden comfort food to the dreaded rounds of cold and flu bugs, it can be hard to stay healthy.

Here are just a few of the health related gadgets which are currently available, that we think are well worth putting on your Christmas wish list, or investing in for yourself.

e Beauty Edit... Keep aesthetic treatments safe this Christmas! You practitioner should be happy with tell you who they are insured with and what procedures they are covered to carry out. Insurance companies will only cover practitioners for treatments following successful completion of accredited courses. Continued professional development is compulsory for all registered healthcare professionals in the UK and your practitioner should be happy to discuss any future training courses they plan to attend to keep their knowledge and skills up-to-date.

Is aftercare included?

Not all complications happen immediately. It is important to find out what support will be available to you once you leave the clinic. This is particularly important in the first few days after treatment when the most serious complication are more likely to occur. A good practitioner will provide comprehensive aftercare advice and ensure that support is readily available. This means someone should be contactable 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and ready to respond if needed.

What products are being used?

With so many cheap dermal fillers flooding the market, it is important to question what is being injected into you. The world’s leading manufacture has recently added a hologram to it’s boxes to combat the growing problem of counterfeit products. We recommend choosing FDA approved products as these have undergone extensive safety testing over long periods of time. Your practitioner should be happy to discuss the products they use and where they source these from.

Non-surgical treatments have advanced so much in recent years. From changing the shape of your nose to contouring the body, there are now viable non-surgical alternatives to going under the knife. Cheaper than surgery and with little to no down-time, what’s not to like? There are so many practitioners offering cosmetic injectable treatments. So, what should you consider before trusting someone with your precious face? The following points will help you to recognise and choose a safe practitioner.

What training, experience and qualification do they have?

Just like surgical alternatives, these treatments are not without risk, even in the most experienced hands, complications do occur. For this reason, it is advisable to choose a healthcare professional with the appropriate training. A doctor, nurse or dentist are ideal choices, as they have years of training and an excellent understanding of anatomy & physiology. You can check if your practitioner is a registered healthcare professional by searching the GMC, NMC and GDC websites.

86 | Safe Aesthetics

Whoever you choose to carry out your treatments, please do your research and keep these points in mind. Remember, this is your face so please don’t just head for the cheapest deal. It may well cost you more in the long run. I hope this helps you to make the right choice for you and stay safe this festive season.

Choo-Choo - All Aboard the Llangollen Winter Express...

In the infamous words of the Starks of Winterfell - Winter is coming... Luckily this year, we have had a long hot summer and if you think about it, it’s the cold winter days that make summer feel sooo amazing - right? In fairness there are some great things about winter; hot chocolate by the fire, cuddling up to watch a movie together, cosy sweaters and woolly socks, not to mention the whole Christmas shebang, when you can eat and drink as much as you like surrounded by your family and friends - pretty good stuff eh! ere is also a ton of special events for the whole family, from Christmas lights ‘switch-on’s’ where the pretty towns and villages are lit up with twinkling lights, Christmas fairs and markets selling everything you may need to make the festive season even more magical and Christmas parties to celebrate another year of work being over.

Feature | Winter in Shropshire

MAKE THE MOST OF IT... Just because it’s snowing, it doesn’t mean you can’t have some outdoor fun. Kids just love getting outside, no matter what the weather brings. Here are just a few fun winter activities that don’t cost a penny, but can give hours and hours of enjoyment:

•Have a snowball fight. •Build a snowman. •Go sledding. •Catch snowflakes on your tongue. •Make a snow angel. •Build a snow fort or an igloo! •Collect pine cones. •Make paper snowflake cut-outs. I admit that it’s not easy to get yourself outdoors in the winter. Most of us want to just hibernate indoors and turn into a hermit. It really important to try your best to get out of this mindset by making yourself go outside. And, once you’re out there, having fun, you will have a magical time - the kind you can only have when the snow comes.

Hyundai i30 Fastback.

SE Nav.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;î&#x20AC;&#x20AC;e Hyundai i30 Fastback is not only a car to be seen in but is certainly one that is rewarding to drive...â&#x20AC;? A rushing light of clouds and splendour....." Never did Shelley's immortal words seem more fit for purpose than when put to use in describing the sensation: aural, visual, tactile (and indeed olfactory - for we are talking of new-minted product) of experiencing first hand the new Hyundai i30 Fastback. And for those restaurant critics out there - no, you can't eat it though it looks as appetising as anything you've ever seen on a gilded platter at a noble banquet.

When times are uncertain people seek comfort in jelly-mould conformity. Just take a look at any passing stream of traffic and you will see what I mean. SUV sameness interspersed with the ice-cream block monotony of delivery vans rushing to destinations unknown as if desperate to arrive before they melt. How bold, therefore, of Hyundai to inject a welcome dash of revivifying style into a moribund theme. The i30 Fastback represents a modal modification of preconception, affirming in its purposeful poise, new and exciting

possibilities. The classic swagger of get-inspired dynamism as conveyed in the swooping, sweeping, stylish rear of this sweetly proportioned 5 door coupe, radiating a message as clear as sunshine, as bright as the chimes of a festive bell ringing through hearts and minds. It's a positive message speaking of life lived to the full, without fear of enjoyment; an encouraging message that heralds a long overdue return of dashing jollity to too-long repressed motoring lives.

Anoraks might protest when it comes to the rational process of decision making, but they are wrong. Romantic souls aspire always to better things and leave the pondering to pedants. No-one knows better than motor manufacturers that the best way to access the purchasers pocket is not to hammer out facts but rather tickle the fancy. And every now and then the fancy needs a sea-change. New air, new light, new inspiration needs to flood in and enliven stagnant waters, causing them once more to dance with twinkling reflections.

This is precisely what Hyundai have achieved with the i30 Fastback. The best news of all derives from the straight fact that this car, while offering sparkling design appeal, at the same time encapsulates good sense engineering wrapped in the safest surroundings. Spiced up handling and performance are there in abundance but never at the expense of safety and comfort. It makes for an irresistible package of good sense, style and fun that demands to be driven. As the clouds parted last Tuesday morning and as I was drawing on my stringback driving gloves, I heard the pattering of laboured feet and beheld the swelling sight of my neighbour Victoria Byron jogging towards me. She pretended to stop to look at the car but really had exhausted her reserves of athleticism. When she had regained her composure she appraised the car with a poetess's eye and to my surprise quoted lines familiar to every educated person. These she directed at the sleek lines of the car itself as it reposed

alongside the wheely bin: "O....thou breath of Autumns being." I took the hint, recognising in a flash the old Frank Ifield song 'The Wayward Wind'. "Let me guess" I said, "You're after a lift to the shops."

Later, as we cruised along broad leafy avenues she intimated that she was looking to buy a new car. Up 'til now she had been disillusioned with the fare on offer but was coming round to the view that an i30 Fastback made good sense. She was angling to drive the car. "Are you insured?" I asked. "Against every pitfall, pit bull and piston-slapping-pitterpat" she declared, thereby overriding any piteous protestations on my part; so I submitted. Settled at the wheel she familiarised herself with the numerous comfort and

driving aids. Miss Byron proved herself adept, revelling in the rorty performance and sporty handling. I told her that the 120PS 1.0 litre 3 cylinder engine driving through the slick six speed gearbox could take us to nearly 120mph - yet this £20,310 SE Nav version would return a claimed 54 mpg overall.

"This" she said, "Is not only a car to be seen in but is certainly one that is rewarding to drive. It Handles like a dream and is so lovely too. If only it kept you fit as well." she added in a wistful tone. "Are you saying" I suggested with a smile "That this car fits you well?" She changed down a gear and the responsive little engine gave a tigerish snarl as if to say 'I'm ready to pounce!' She then warned me in no uncertain terms that my sharp wit would prove my undoing.

" Well Miss Byron" I quipped, " You may be named after an illustrious poet but it's the first time I've been likened to a poet myself. If I read you correctly you are comparing me to Walt Whitman.

Her answer? She accelerated briskly. The result being that of a quack hack falling back under a flak attack in an i30 Fastback. I thanked my lucky stars that the safe and supportive passenger seat would protect me from poetic justice Much better I decided, to keep one's mouth shut and let the car do the talking - especially one so persuasively primed to please as the i30 Fastback with its 5 year warranty.
