Galliers providing exclusive collection of homes in Hadnall... Galliers Homes, one of Shropshire’s leading house building companies, is reporting strong interest in its Hadnall development – with over 50% of properties already sold. Galliers is providing an exclusive collection of homes in the village of Hadnall, located just north of Shrewsbury on the A49.

Church View offers a selection of 35 new two, three, four and fivebedroom properties, including a mix of houses and bungalows. The high quality residences are all carefully designed and finished to a high specification. With a coveted spot in this popular location, these new homes have the advantages of a village lifestyle combined with the benefits of convenient connections. “We have developed several successful housing schemes in Hadnall over the past few years and Church View is proving to be another very popular place to live,” said Andy Gough, director of familyowned firm Galliers Homes, which has recently moved to a new head office on Shrewsbury Business Park due to continued expansion.

“We are delighted to report that more than half of our properties in Hadnall have now sold - and with our Part Exchange scheme on offer the homes are very sought-after.

“This is an attractive village which is well placed for travel to Shrewsbury and further afield so it is not surprising that people want to live here,” Andy said.

There is a range of individual layouts at Church View, with each home being finished – like all Galliers’ residences - to an exacting specification.They include bright living spaces, elegant bathrooms and a high quality kitchen with superb integrated appliances. The Hadnall properties have been carefully designed to reflect the existing local house styles and include features such as bay windows and roof finials to give character to the exterior appearance. Homes on the market at Church View are available with Help to Buy packages.

The Ugly Duckling Review_Double Page Editorial 12/06/2017 15:44 Page 1



Indulge yourself at The Ugly Duckling... The Ugly Duckling dates back to 1810, formerly The Bucks Head situated just a few minutes outside of Telford in Long Lane, it has been renovated extensively by the new owners Mitch Ellis and Sam McNulty, and is now a fabulous combination of contemporary and Georgian design, combined with an orangery extension, expressing the very best of old and new.

My husband Stephan and I went along to sample the Sunday lunch menu, which offers either 2 courses for £16.95 or 3 courses for £19.95. I have visited before and knew that we were in for a treat but Stephan hadn’t been before and was amazed at its transformation, with exposed brick features, clever use of mirrors – which adds an interesting new dimension to the eclectic mix of seating arrangements. It’s luxurious and extremely well thought out.

We were seated in a cosy booth, which looked through to the fabulous orangery and out onto the large outdoor area. There was a busy throng of activity with couples and families dotted around. We were given the menus and offered drinks by our lovely waitress Chelsea, diet coke for me and a large glass of Pinot Grigio for Stephan. We browsed the lunch menu, which has a good selection of starters and mains, as well as some extremely tempting desserts. I was drawn to the Crayfish, Prawn & Orange Salad, with Bloody Mary Rose, Brown Bread and Butter and for Stephan the Ugly Duckling Tapas; Honey Glazed Chorizo, Scorched Bell Peppers, Broad Bean Hummus, Vodka

The Ugly Duckling Review_Double Page Editorial 12/06/2017 15:44 Page 2

Compressed Watermelon, Sesame Grilled Halloumi and Olives. For our main course I stayed with a fish theme and opted for the Chilli Crusted Salmon Fillet served with New Potatoes, laid out over a bed of Béarnaise Sauce. Stephan loves a traditional roast so the Slow Roast Topside of Beef with Roast Potatoes, Yorkshire pudding and a Red Wine Gravy was a must.

The starters arrived quickly, and were excellent, as I had expected they would be from the top team of chefs at The Ugly Duckling. The crayfish and prawns were juicy and flavoursome, the crispy salad and watercress, complementing them very nicely. The tapas starter was in a whole new league of its own, stunningly presented, the glazed chorizo on little bamboo skewers was bursting with flavour and the sesame halloumi, with delicate sesame flavouring infused throughout, was a delightful twist on this tapas classic. We were served a Gin & Tonic sorbet between the starter and main course, to cleanse our palettes, which was light and refreshing – a really nice touch. The mains were quick to follow, and were stunning. The presentation is excellent and the food is of the very highest quality; which is evident in the taste. The salmon was divine, the crusted top was crunchy and delightfully tasty, the meat was cooked to within a micron of perfection and the béarnaise sauce was a beautiful accompaniment, amalgamating into a brilliant dish. The roast beef was glorious; one of the best we’ve seen, Stephan’s eyes lighting up with glee at the sight of the sumptuous slab of beef and huge, fluffy Yorkshire pudding. The beef was superbly cooked, the roast potatoes were golden and crispy on the outside yet fluffy and light on the inside and the selection of cooked veg on the side – all the essentials for a great roast dinner, however it was the red wine gravy that was the crowning glory of this top notch Sunday lunch - It’s all about the flavours… and these flavours are exquisite.

The dessert menu was too tempting to miss, Apple & Cherry Crumble for Stephan and Raspberry Semi-freddo for me – plus another large glass of Pinot to wash it down. The crumble was bursting with fruity goodness and vanilla custard rounded of the most traditional of Sunday lunches for Stephan with absolute brilliance. My raspberry semi-freddo was a new high point of the day. This sublime dessert, semi-frozen slices of pure heaven was given a lively kick by the raspberries and sauce. The scoop of Chantilly cream added a touch of pure indulgence which indeed sums up the whole experience – indulge in good drink, indulge in excellent food, and be indulged by the staff who are on hand for your every need. Plus you can indulge in some of the most beautiful scenery in the county. From enjoying coffee at lunchtime to sipping champagne for a special occasion dinner your visit will be one to remember.

With regular events, rooms available and the highest standard of food - The Ugly Duckling is now firmly building its reputation as one of the top eateries in Shropshire.

Scholars Restaurant at

e taste of things to

North Shropshire College...


My fiancée Ashleigh and I decided to head over to the Scholars Restaurant at the North Shropshire College campus in Oswestry. As we arrived we were warmly welcomed by our waiter for the evening and shown to our table. The restaurant itself has a lovely layout and you can see the guys have put a lot of effort into making this a restaurant of the highest standards, equal to that of any top restaurants I have been to in the UK – and I have visited quite a few! To start we were offered drinks and we both decided to go for a J2O - nice and refreshing on an unusually very warm day.

We had been given the opportunity to sample a special menu, which had been created for an event that they were hosting the following week for the graduation dinner for the level 3 students. For our starter we had the Salmon Mousse with Lemon and Caper Beignets Pastry Crumb Mayonnaise, the salmon itself was a delightful texture, perfectly smooth and the flavour was beautiful, not over powering and it was brilliantly complimented by the caper beignets and pastry crumb. This dish was bursting with flavours and everything worked very well together to create a well-rounded dish. For our main course Ashleigh had chosen Rump Steak with Parmetier Potatoes, accompanied by Rocket and Peppercorn Sauce, and I opted for Spinach Roulade with Goats Cheese, Dauphinoise Potatoes and Red Pepper Sauce. Ashleigh is a real steak lover, she opted for her steak to be cooked medium and that was exactly what she got, absolutely perfectly cooked with precision timing, leaving that glorious pinkie tinge to

Scholar; a specialist in a particular branch of study... the centre and oozing with flavour. It literally melted in her mouth. The parmetier were great, crispy on the outside but soft in the middle overall a fantastic main dish. The roulade was a first for me, I have never sampled spinach roulade before and this was a really pleasant surprise which I certainly would choose again in future. The spinach roulade itself was fantastic dish that was bursting with flavour and a truly sensational dish with the layered dauphinoise potatoes and red pepper sauce really bringing the whole thing together perfectly.

For our dessert we had the White and Dark Chocolate Mousse, Raspberry Sorbet, Apple and Blackcurrant Jelly with Shortbread Biscuit. The flavours of the whole dish really worked well together and the sweet and sour tastes made this a truly sensational course. This was perfect end to a perfect meal. Overall we had a great experience, the passion of the students really shone through in the dishes they created and the service was excellent - I would recommend a visit to Scholars to anyone and will be returning very soon to try some more new and exciting dishes from the talented young chefs.

The Restaurant is open during term-time on a Monday evening from 6pm and Tuesday and Wednesday from 10am.

Odyssey Review_Double Page Editorial 16/02/2017 10:33 Page 1

Odyssey Greek Restaurant

Escape to this Greek gem for a truly traditional...

It was a particularly freezing Friday evening in February in Telford and all I could dream about was disappearing away on holiday somewhere with the sun shining. Stepping into the family run Odyssey Greek Restaurant in the centre of Telford we were greeted with a warm welcome from the staff, beautiful modern décor and the aroma of Greek food. The ambient restaurant was bustling with other customers and in the background traditional Greek music transported us all away to a sunnier destination.


We opted for the Greek meze menu- although the menu is so extensive if you wanted to have just one dish from the grill, options are endless including a fine array of steaks, grilled dishes, seafood, stuffed vegetables and a good selection of vegetarian dishes! We couldn’t decide as everything sounded amazing so the meze menu was a perfect option; a true feast for the eyes and our stomachs in turn.

As the starters began to arrive we couldn’t decide which to try first as the plates kept arriving brimming with traditional Greek food including Freshly fried Calamari, a tasty selections of homemade dips, Greek olives, pitta bread, Greek salad, grilled haloumi, smoked pork loin, breaded crab croquettes, black eyed bean salad, tiger prawns and my personal favourite spiced pork sausage marinated in red wine and coriander. A selection to impress any customer which was accompanied by a beautiful Mateus wine.

The authentic food continued in the meze main course with stuffed vine leaves, beef marinated in red wine and spices, fillets of grilled chicken mixed with the families own special spices, marinated, grilled pork loin, slow cooked mouth-watering meat with peas (that falls apart in your mouth) along with YiaYia’s traditional rice and potatoes. We were in food heaven. So many different but delicious flavours made this menu more of an experience than a meal. The traditional, homemade food was a tonic for the soul after a

Odyssey Review_Double Page Editorial 16/02/2017 10:33 Page 2

long week and with each mouthful we were transported away to Greece - between excitedly encouraging each other to try another of the delicious options. We opted for a selection of traditional Greek desserts that did not disappoint and with a complimentary shot of ouzo to finish off the dining experience we were well and truly in love with this restaurant. The service was excellent and the friendly, attentive staff are a credit to Costas. The food is extremely reasonable and all freshly made by the family. 5 stars from us all and the other diners at the time were certainly in the same mind-set. The extensive meze meal is £17.95 per person and £22.95 on the party nights due to the added entertainment.

We plan to come back to experience the party night where they have live music and dancers on all night as you dine. Open 7 days a week from 5.30pm, we are already planning our next trip away to visit Odyssey - instead of the stress of packing our bags, to escape to this Greek gem in the heart of Telford, the only planning we need to do is to bring our empty bellys and book a table to avoid disappointment as this is really a fantastic night out not just a meal!

Little Mix

The Glory Days Tour 2017 13 October 2017 (Evening show) 17 November 2017 (Evening show) Sat 18 November 2017 (Matinee + Evening show) Genting Arena Birmingham The world biggest girl group Little Mix have announced an extra date at Birmingham’s Genting Arena next October as part of The Glory Days Tour.

Since 2011 Perrie Edwards, Jesy Nelson, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jade Thirlwall have established themselves as one of British pop’s brightest acts. With their new album ‘Glory Days’, led by the glorious and cheeky lead single 'Shout Out To My Ex', this only makes this fact even more glaringly obvious.

Signature hits including ‘Move’, ‘Wings’ and ‘Black Magic’ - the latter becoming their third UK chart-topper, stubbornly spending three weeks at the top last summer - have helped the Number One-selling girlband score over one billion YouTube and Vevo views worldwide, alongside massive tours of the UK, Australia, Japan and the US – where their debut album smashed a record the Spice Girls held for almost two decades.

In many ways, however, it was their third album, 2015's 'Get Weird', that was the real turning point. Released in the hugely competitive month of November it crashed into the chart at Number 2, spent the rest of that year in the Top Ten and by August 2016 had become the biggest-selling album of their careers. Rather than seeing their careers plateau or start to diminish with each album, Little Mix are revelling in bucking the trends of the more typical pop acts.

Its ridiculous success also meant they could head out on yet another arena tour, this time playing an incredible 60 shows across Europe, Australia and Asia, and selling over 500k tickets. Pop acts like Little Mix don't come along that often. Growing better and bolder with each new album, things are about to go properly interstellar.

Bridal Reloved FP_Double Page Editorial 13/06/2017 16:05 Page 1

Bridal Reloved Rowton... Bridal Reloved Rowton sells pristine pre-owned wedding dresses by only the best designers. These dresses are either brand new, ex-sample or worn once and cleaned. The idea behind Bridal Reloved is to help people spend less on their wedding without compromising on design, style and class, which is why they only sell top designers. Stock changes regularly and they currently have dresses by Jenny Packham, Vera Wang, Lusan Mandongus, Ian Stuart and Claire Pettibone to name a few - some of which simply aren't available elsewhere in Shropshire.

The boutique has been open since April 2016 and business is booming, with a string of 5* reviews from happy brides who have found their dream dress and saved hundreds of pounds at the same time! One delighted bride said "This was the only place I went into to buy my dress as there was no need to go elsewhere. I'm so glad I came! Nobody could tell my dress was second hand as it was in pristine condition. The shop itself is beautiful and the range of dresses are stunning". The boutique can be found in a beautiful converted barn just next door to Rowton Castle just a short drive from Shrewsbury. The owner, Jenny Powell, prides herself on first-class customer service and believes that the experience of buying a wedding dress should be relaxed, exciting and of course fun: "Come on your own or bring your bridal entourage, have some prosecco and get inspired. You'll find variety and quality with us at a price you can afford!"

Bridal Reloved Rowton is part of the Bridal Reloved Franchise, a growing brand with 11 boutiques throughout the UK and more coming. Please book to make a private appointment. A seamstress service and payment plan are available. Credit: Toby H Photography

Enjoy an English Tea Party... Enjoying afternoon tea is a fine British tradition. Throwing your own afternoon tea party is a lovely, fun way to enjoy your favourite finger foods with some freinds and better still you can stick to your own budget

To throw a stylish soiree in your garden this summer, start with the table and chairs. Add cushions if your chairs are on the hard side, and use a heavy tablecloth (pink or white looks amazing), and invest in a tiered cake stand, you can pick them up relatively cheaply in places like Asda Home or Home Bargains, and they make a lovely centrepiece for your table. If you are really looking to impress your freinds you could invest in some special occasion crockery, lace doilies and even name place signs. There are some beautiful choices of crockery available.

Pip Studio Spring to Life white range from Daisy Park visit:

Pink & white are the ‘in’ colours for 2017, the Spring to Life White Range is an interplay of sketched flowers and animals inspired by old botanical drawings, with the gold accents and ribbon edging, perfect for the occasion. A classic Tea set is a must, so you will need a Teapot, Sugar Bowl and Milk Jug. Cups and saucers are a must (no mugs!) There areno rules when it comes to finger food, but a standard afternoon tea comprises a layer of sandwiches, a layer of cakes and a layer of scones or teacakes. However, you could also throw in pastries or biscuits, for good measure. A lovely way to enjoy a cup of ‘Rosie Lee’...

That’s a complete Service Care Cover Plan for just £14.08 a month. A breakdown could easily cost you £400 if you need a new part like a heat exchanger. A new radiator could run you £180. They could cost you this much, but our boiler cover means they won’t. Not only that, our cover plan will mean regular servicing for your boiler, ensuring that it’s actually running economically and safely.



Getting covered is quick and easy... Our sales team are on hand to arrange a visit from one of our engineers at a time and date to suit you. Our engineers will come around and take you through everything, step-bystep. Your system will be covered from the date our engineer visits you. Call us on 01952 259019 or 01743 358234 or drop us an email:

Our Cover Plan will give you a lot of things. First, the £169 you pay per year covers the labour charges and spare parts in the event of a breakdown. That £400 heat exchanger wouldn’t cost you anything more, so you’d be saving a whopping £231 plus labour charges. That’s more than the yearly cost of cover in a single breakdown! Remember that it’s not just boilers. This plan covers your full system – boiler, controls, radiator and pipework.


On top of saving you money, we give you the service you want. A fast and reliable one. If your system has a breakdown, you get priority attention. That means you could jump straight to the head of the queue and have an engineer visit you within hours. No more waiting around in the cold winter months for an engineer. And when it comes to servicing your system, we’ll arrange a date with you well in advance to ensure that servicing is done at a time of your convenience.

GARDENING FEATURE We all love to relax in the garden in the summer, but what looks like lovely green grass can, on closer inspection, be a depressing mix of moss and weeds. If you are determined to have a lush lawn for the summer, now is the ideal time to give your lawn an overhaul to ensure it remains in the peak of health over the coming summer months. Here are a few simple tips from lawn expert Jason Bell, of lawn treatment company GreenThumb, based in Oswestry, to get the perfect lawn and keep it that way right through the year.

The most important thing is to give your lawn a much-deserved drink. Water at times when the moisture is likely to soak in rather than evaporate - early morning or late evening is the best. When it’s dry, a good soaking once or twice a week is much more beneficial for your lawn as opposed to a light sprinkling every day, as this can cause the roots to grow shallow and be prone to drying out. Try to mow your lawn at least once a week, keeping the height of the grass to about 25mm (1”) or 50mm (2”) during dry spells. Avoid cutting too short as this will encourage weeds and moss to enter your lawn. In hot, dry weather your lawn will become stressed and it is advisable to reduce the amount of mowing, and allow your grass to grow longer. Hotter weather and dry spells over the summer can lead to your lawn turning yellow and drying up. There are some really effective treatments out there that can help grass stay greener for longer, such as the Oasis treatment from local lawn care specialist GreenThumb. The surfactant attaches itself to the molecules in the soil to conserve any moisture, helping to reduce the amount of watering needed. Where soil type is mainly clay,

which is common in the Oswestry region, the amount of water needed to keep grass green can be reduced by up to 80%, so you can spend less time watering and more time enjoying your lawn.

At this time of year, GreenThumb provide an Early Summer treatment. This will continue to nourish the grass plant using a controlled release fertiliser, whilst keeping the growth and colour over the warm summer months. Weeds are also targeted to ensure that any remaining weeds are controlled.

Often the centrepiece that sets off spectacular flowering borders, and links patio to pond or sundeck to shrubbery, the lawn is frequently the least cared-for feature in the garden. ‘Weeds are the bane of many lawns, and spring-time onwards is a good time to tackle them,” says Jason. “Our treatment controls dandelions, daisies and clover, as well as other weeds.”

You can rest assured, we will have a solution to transform your piece of grass, whatever the size, into a lush, green, weed-free lawn, for you to enjoy. Booking your garden in for a treatment is easy – simply call 01691 655111 or find your local branch online at

-HEALTH FEATUREComplementary Therapy

Welcome to KruKira an Oswestry based Holistic Therapy business established by Tom Dewar BCMA Reg, MAET, MCthA, who is a qualified and insured therapist and practitioner.

We live within uncertain times as our beloved NHS struggles to survive it’s independence from corporate take over and GP waiting times are pushed beyond extremes.

I was fortunate enough to grow up within a family who devoted their working life to the medical world. My late Mother had her own General Practice and worked as a GP. My Father now retired a senior consultant in anaesthetics as well as holding key positions within the NHS – presidential (regional) and chairmanship (national). Those times were certainly the ‘golden era’ as opposed to the uncertainty now face. TomweDewar - Krukira

So when our medical professionals are asking for that strain to be lifted, the option is the complementary holistic route. It is important to understand that when selecting a therapist and practitioner, ensure that he or she is qualified and insured to practice. Needless to say it is better if he or she is a member of a governing body such as The British Complementary Medicine Association, or The Complementary Therapists Association as example. I also provide referrals to other established and trusted practitioners should this be required to support your well being.

So how can the complementary holistic route of health care help you today?

Holistic complementary therapies can: • Ease tension and stress. • Boost the immune system. • Promote & induce relaxation. • Reduce emotional trauma, such as bereavement. • Remove physical pain and stiffness. • Break through addictions and negative behaviour patterns. • Improve circulation. • Improve sleep patterns and promote restful sleep. • Aid in the elimination of toxins.

We also offer home whitening – this is done for a few hours at a time, it is a safe and effective treatment, the results just take a little more time to achieve.

TIGHTER skin with fewer wrinkles

LIFTED younger looking skin

DEFINED silhouette with firmer skin

We are a private clinic dedicated to providing the Alevere Therapy to enable you to achieve your weight loss goals and a range of non-invasive treatments to help you lose inches, contour your figure, smooth your skin and reduce the effects of ageing on your body and face.

Our ENDYMED Facial Tightening is a non-invasive facial skin tightening treatment of safe and clinically proven radio frequency to lift and firm skin, shape the neck and facial areas and smooth wrinkles through collagen stimulation. Our ENDYMED TIGHTEN treatment will give you firmer, tighter and lifted facial skin and our ENDYMED SHAPE treatment will define your jawline with tighter, lifted skin. •

• • •

Contour, lift and firm sagging or lax skin on the face and neck and smooth wrinkles Treats the cheeks, jawline, under the chin, neck, eyes and mouth areas Suitable for all skin types and colours Non-invasive – no downtime and no recovery time from surgery

Our FDA approved ENDYMED machine uses its patented 3DEEP technology to deliver controlled, focused multisource RF energy deep into the skin, gently generating the optimum level of heat to stimulate the natural production of collagen, thereby improving the underlying structures of your skin and causing skin to tighten and lift without any pain or recovery time.

As the ENDYMED treatments stimulate natural responses in your skin, the results you’ll see will be completely natural looking too. It’s like turning back the clock to reveal more youthful looking, firmer, tighter, smoother, lifted skin. The clinically proven ENDYMED TIGHTEN and SHAPE treatments will deliver natural, long-lasting results. How long the results last for depends upon the natural ageing process of your skin, so we will be able to recommend when to have a top up treatment, which is typically every 3 to 6 months.
