THANK YOU EDENBRIDGE!

When we were commissioned to create a series of mini dramas for some staff training films we were determined to film as much of it as possible within our home town. We urgently needed locations, props, extras and a top of the range luxury car. Could Edenbridge come up with the goods? Read on… Mr & Mrs Smart, Mr & Mrs Dunn, and Mr & Mrs Cheshire allowed us to film in their homes. Harwoods provided a brand new Range Rover for our actor to drive. Kent and Surrey Golf Club, Hever Golf Club and Limpsfield Tennis Club allowed us to film on their courses, courts and bars. Something Special, Your Good Health and Contented Pets let us film scenes with our actors in their shops – Farringtons and Piper’s Florist lent us props and quite a few other props we bought from Bradfords (there’s almost nothing you can’t get in there!) What was notable was the helpfulness, flexibility and easygoing way in which people responded to our requests. We thought we’d celebrate that by writing this letter! So … THANK YOU EDENBRIDGE!

Editor’s Note

May/June 2016  The Edenbridge Directory

Dear Neighbours, With such a busy issue I've barely left myself any room for my editor's note. Of course you can keep up-to-date via the magazine facebook page of things happening around the area. My highlight over the last couple of months has been to find a picture which includes me (top right) in the Eden Valley Museum's "All the World's a Stage" exhibition from an evening out at the museum with friends a few years ago. We have an unusual cat ornament up for grabs in the Prize Crossword Competition so if you (or anyone you know) likes cats then you'll be wanting to get your hands on this prize courtesy of Lucky Cat Sitters. Complete the crossword on page 50 and send in your entry to be entered into the prize draw. I'd like to thank the 1st Edenbridge Scouts for another tremendous quiz night at the WI Hall last month. My team, The Chamber Pots, are moving up the rankings, coming second this time. Scouts Maddie and Alisha (pictured) did a super job selling raffle tickets - well done!

I hope you enjoy this issue and please don’t forget to mention The Edenbridge Directory if you are responding to anything you’ve seen featured in this magazine as it helps secure it’s future. Until next time... Laura Burton-Lawrence | Editor - The Edenbridge Directory

Flexible Health Insurance Brokers Ltd: Financial Protection explained

Julie Defago, adviser at Flexible Health Insurance explains the benefits of Financial Protection for both families and businesses.

"Most people are aware that it is sensible to have life insurance in place to protect your mortgage but this is only one aspect of Financial Protection that families should consider. If a family looses their breadwinner or a stay at home parent (worth about £30k a year!) they are going to face real hardship, even if the mortgage is paid off so extra cover should be considered for ongoing monthly costs. Ideally families should consider the following additions to a basic life policy: Critical Illness “CI” insurance – this pays out a lump sum in the event of the insured person being diagnosed with

a qualifying Critical Illness, typically Heart, Cancer, Stroke etc. Such a payout can be used to pay off a mortgage or simply for the family to live on.

recommendation to fit your budget. It is an ironic fact that people are more likely to pay to insure their pets than their breadwinner!

Income Protection – this pays a monthly amount if you are unable to work due to accident or illness. This is particularly important if you don’t get any sick pay from your employer or are Self Employed.

“Insurers never pay out” – actually they do! If your policy is correctly set up there is no reason why it won’t pay out.

Finally, I will mention Business Financial Protection which is a will for your business and you owe it to your staff and We hear many objections from family to make provisions clients such as: for the business to continue. The loss of a key person can “It won’t happen to me” immediately impact profits and “I don’t like thinking and ultimately force it to about such things”. Many close.

The Barrister Broker - reducing your legal costs outset;

The fundamental benefits in using the direct services of barristers are:

to obtain a fair resolution, whether over the finances ii) fixed fees - agreed in or concerning the children, advance so no nasty surprise bear in mind legislation that bills later on; and came into effect in April iii) pay less - barristers cost 2014 which requires anyone less than solicitors - and in my seeking to start family court experience typically 50% less proceedings about finances overall and sometimes more. on divorce or children matters (note that some exemptions I have a special interest in do apply) must first attend a helping people involved in family Mediation, Information family law matters (divorce and child custody and contact) and Assessment Meeting otherwise known as a MIAM. for two reasons really; firstly This means that you must because I have been through go through a process before the divorce process myself and therefore understand the being able to issue a court tpplication, although the issues and difficulties that process itself should be people face, and secondly relatively straightforward because legal fees can be and inexpensive.

I had another evening of fun at the annual Scout Quiz, my third year on a team with my wife, Laura. We actually did rather well this time, coming second. Well done to the Scouts for organising another super event and well done to the rest of the 'Chamber Pots' team. But back to the world of The Barrister Broker and how I will significantly reduce your legal costs… For the benefit of new readers, I am not a lawyer and cannot give legal advice. I am a freelance barristers’ clerk and facilitator making life easier for people who need legal services by arranging for them to have direct access to barristers - the specialist lawyers - rather than going to solicitors.

FIRST YEAR ANNIVERSARY!

On 1st April the team at the Business Innovation Zone celebrated one year at Norton House, our premises on Fircroft Way. I would like to take the opportunity to thank everyone who has been supporting us throughout our first year. The Edenbridge Directory for letting everyone know what we're up to, the Eden Valley Chamber of Commerce for using our admin support service, Keith & Jennie Steptoe for their help during the early stages, Mr & Mrs Ken Day who regularly use our online selling facility, Blackdog Microsystems for the IT support provided over the last year and Terry Blake who has helped in so many ways. Our ultimate thanks are to Sainsburys for the use of their building and John Surtees and his team for keeping us very comfortable in our space as without the space we would not be able to do the things we do.

WORKING JOURNEYS

This is a new specialist course for which we have recruited three young people from Edenbridge's surrounding

areas who feel they need support in getting a job. The workshop will help to raise self esteem, motivate and gain confidence to find work. The course will result in valuable work experience as well as a reference for future employment.

EUROPEAN DELEGATES COMING TO VISIT

We are preparing for a huge event taking place at the end of April where the BIZ Centre will be visited by a number of European Delegates who are interested in learning about what we have been able to achieve here in the hope that the idea can be rolled out in many places and not just Edenbridge. It's fantastic recognition for the team here and we are looking forward to having the space brimming with guests, including our MP Tom Tugendhat MBE.

HUGE SUCCESS

Following on from the incredibly successful 'Horse & Hound' event, we are exploring further ways to progress with offering services to all those in need of help with muscular ailments in humans, horses and hounds -

businessinnovationzone.co.uk watch this space!

PARTNERING WITH LOCAL COMPANIES

Coffee with Moore have moved into our premises and we provide the business with admin support and office space as her business is continuing to grow from strength to strength. One of our young employees, Bevan, also helps with food preparation as he is food hygiene qualified. This is working out to be an excellent partnership for us all.

MOVING INTO EMPLOYMENT

Congratulations are in order for Josh Church who was one of the first young people who went through our Employability workshop last year. Since completing the course he has been working at the BIZ Centre on various projects and is now moving into a new position with local company Resimend. We wish him every success!

CAN WE HELP YOU?

We are very flexible in the help we provide so if you need any assistance then give us a call on 01732 667 250, email info@ businessinnovationzone.co.uk or pop in to see us at our space on Fircroft Way and we'll see what we can do for you!
