Editor’s Note

May/June 2015  The Edenbridge Directory

Dear Neighbours, The year is swiftly moving on and I am writing this whilst enjoying the sunshine in the garden accompanied by the sounds of birds chirping,

lawnmowers rumbling and little Milo cat purring on my lap. It feels like a Summer morning although we’re still in Spring.

You’ll find plenty to keep you busy over the coming months - we have

the Hospital Fete coming up on 6th June and there will be another Eden Valley Festival running from 23rd May to the 6th June. Unfortunately, and it is with regret, the Chamber of Commerce have had to cancel the annual Fun Day and Car Parade on the Bank Holiday as there simply

wasn’t the man power to put on an event of this magnitude. They are hoping it will be back in forthcoming years!

I popped along to the hft Spring Fair last month

and they did a super job in keeping the fair running

despite the not so great weather we had on the day.

fair.

I heard that by the end of the day Larmars Catering had

throughout the afternoon to provide excellent backing music to the

completely sold out of their Hog Roast so there were clearly some very hungry visitors to eat that much hog!

What has now become an annual event in my own calendar and that of a group of my friends is the Scout Quiz. We may not have won the quiz (again)

but we all had fun as usual and the Scouts raised a grand total of £1200 which is a great result. Quiz Nights are very popular fundraising activities for many of our local organisations and such fun to attend. If you fancy getting a team

together then the local CAB are holding one on the 9th May at the Eden Centre (more details on page 18).

It is now that I wish to share with you the latest

project I have become involved in. On 30th April I will be launching my first online radio show - The

Community Show. It will cover all things community, charity and fundraising taking place in Kent and on the county borders. You may remember reading that I currently co-host “The Women in Business Radio Show” so it was only a matter of time before I was going to launch my own show. It will mainly

34a High Street has been a dry cleaners since 1985 and has been under the ownership of Sav Cafer since 2000. While the dry cleaning industry itself has not changed much over the years, the clothing industry has with the introduction of machine washable suits and now for many, workwear has become a more casual affair than it was in the 80’s. This of course has had an impact not just on EdenClean but dry cleaners up and down the country. Even the town itself has had an impact on the trade at EdenClean since the closure of the large offices that used to feature in our town. But EdenClean pushes on, providing an essential service to those that still have ‘Dry Clean Only’ labels in their wardrobes.

and for that I’d like to thank all

The Barrister Broker - reducing your legal costs The sun has been shining as I wrote this article which means the warmer weather is upon us thank goodness! I am always being kept busy and entertained by the goings on in Edenbridge and seem to have spent quite a bit of time recently at hft - not just for their Spring Fair which was well attended, plus we managed to pick up a few bits for the home, but Laura also won a competition to have afternoon tea at the Oak Tree Bistro and that was certainly a memorable experience. We had more cake than we could shake a stick at, but luckily they gave us a doggie bag to take home what we couldn’t eat. If you haven’t been there before I highly recommend you try their cakes!

solely by the hour, and because I can empathise having been through a divorce myself when my children were very young. As clients of mine will know, I make a difference both in terms of the quality of legal advice and representation from the barristers that I arrange and the cost of that advice and representation. For the main part charges are on a “fixed fee” basis, meaning that you will know in advance what the cost will be BEFORE deciding whether to go ahead or not.

When divorcing couples think they are going to need the intervention of the courts to make orders over their finances or concerning the children, bear in mind NEW LEGISLATION which came into effect in April last year. This is the compulsory requirement that all people seeking to start family court proceedings about finances on divorce or children matters (note that exemptions do apply) must attend a family Mediation, Information and Assessment Meeting (MIAM) first. This means you now have to go through a process before being able to issue a court application, although the process But back to the world of The itself is relatively straightforward.

In Spring our attention turns to the garden and extending our living space outside. With Bank Holidays coming, thoughts of BBQ and alfresco dining appeal to all - depending on the great British weather of course! So here are some tips on keeping safe this BBQ season from JPro Services Ltd, the local experts in Fire Safety & Security. Whilst clearing the shed think about general outdoor housekeeping. Remove piles of rubbish or garden waste that could dry over the summer becoming a source of ignition. If burning garden waste take care. You could be fined £5,000 if smoke is considered a danger to public health or allowed to drift across roads becoming a danger to traffic. Always inform neighbours of your intention to have a bonfire. Legislation allows you to have a bonfire at any time of the day or week provided smoke or flames are not a ‘nuisance to others’ nearby. Do not leave fires unattended, and dampen down remaining embers with water when finished. Be careful working with naked flames in your garden. Do not use accelerants to start a fire or BBQ. Locate away from properties, sheds, fences, or overhanging trees. Over 2,000 people are admitted every year to A&E with BBQ related injuries. To keep safe follow this checklist: • Keep children and pets away from cooking areas. • Never leave BBQ’s unattended. • Keep a bucket of water or sand nearby for

emergencies. • Ensure the BBQ is cool before moving or disposing of it. • If using a disposable BBQ ensure it has cooled before binning it, pouring water over it to make sure it’s out. • Do not dispose of hot ashes in dustbins or wheelie bins. • With gas BBQ’s, if you suspect a leak brush soapy water around the joints and watch for bubbles - tighten to fix but do not overtighten. • Always consider Carbon Monoxide especially when camping or in a confined area. Inside the home - have you checked your smoke alarms recently? When was the last time you cleaned out your toaster? Burnt crumbs can catch light – take this opportunity to shake them out! Do you have a fire blanket for household kitchen or appliance fires? This is the quickest way to smother a fire on the kitchen hob or electrical items. Going on holiday? What about home security? Move bins away from fences, walls or gates to limit access to your property. Consider installing motion sensor LED floodlights, a dummy bell box or CCTV cameras as deterrents, or a full intruder alarm system for peace of mind. New technology now allows you to monitor your house remotely via your mobile phone. Finally, driving away over the bank holiday weekend? More than 28,000 car fires happen in the UK each year – a staggering 300 per day. The benefits of having a fire extinguisher in your vehicle should be obvious – and it’s something we can help with too. Call us for more information.
