They’ll check 29 different points, and provide a written report with an explanation of any findings. You’ll receive a competitive estimate upfront for any work needed, but you’re under no obligation to have it done. To help you decide, the written report grades each element of the healthcheck according to the following colour codes. Red items - Require urgent attention. Amber items - Some concerns registered. If not rectified, these items need monitoring to ensure safety and/or reliability and to avoid additional costs.

Chris Allen Garages are proud to be recognised as one of the country’s top performing dealers for the supply of Brand New and Quality used vehicles to our Motability customers.

BLACKPOOL NORTH Your FREE Local Community & Business Directory Hello and welcome to the latest edition of LINK Mag! Finally, the new football season is back underway. The phenomenal Olympic games might have kept us busy but we can’t wait to see the two local teams in action this term. Good luck to both the Seasiders and Cod Army, I’m sure you’ll both do us all proud!

The World Firework Championships return in September too, with pyrotechnic experts wowing locals and tourists alike in the skies above the promenade on 7, 14, 21 & 28 September. And don’t forget to see the best lights show in the world. The Illuminations switch on is 31 August 2012 and lasts for 66 nights. I wonder who will flick the switch this year! Our NEW business index is in this edition too. Designed to help you quickly and simply find the business you’re looking for at a glance, it can be found near the back of the magazine just inside from the classified pages. Congratulations to the winners of last month’s competitions. Dawson Jones of Fleetwood won our Where Am I? Competition, so well done - £50 is on its way to you! Also, Barbara Simpson won the James Jackson WIN Your MOT draw. A pat on the back to you both! Don’t forget, LINK-Magazine also offers competitive leaflet print and distribution for up to 96,000 homes and businesses across the Fylde Coast, as well as offering FREE ‘What’s On’ listings for most local events.

This month we’re starting on an optimistic mood for an Indian Summer as we approach September! It was always boiling when I went back to school for the start of term, so let’s hope it will be in 2012. If you’re a teacher or involved with a local school please get in touch. We want to get the young people involved in the new term – some schools already are – and you can showcase your talents in a number of ways. This month on the website we’ve been busy adding articles, like the one about the South Beach Business Forum and how they need your help to make the area great. We’ve met the inspirational TramShed Theatre, and taken photos of the demolition works at Talbot Road – ready for the exciting new Central Business District and Sainsbury’s supermarket. We’ve also got Illuminations fever, with news all about the Lights, Switch On, what’s new for this year, plus our trip to the preview event and childhood memories of Illuminations gone by.

there to enjoy without the journey that tourists make – or having to go back home! How lucky we are to live in a great place like Blackpool! There’s also a new Events Calendar on the Live Blackpool website, so keep an eye on it for meetings, events and entertainment from all over the Fylde Coast. We’d love to hear your news and tell everyone all about your community groups and what you get up to. We’ll help you to spread your word, so by all means send us your news and we’ll share it. Keep an eye on the website, www.liveBlackpool.info, for all the latest local developments and community news added regularly. You can subscribe for email updates to make sure that you don’t miss out!

If you’ve got anything to tell us just email jane@theRabbitPatch.co.uk or ring 07932 143431. If you’ve got anything to tell us just email jane@theRabbitPatch.co.uk or ring 07932 143431.

Non-surgical treatments have become increasingly popular for both women and men over the past decade. A browse on the internet can leave you confused and baffled as to which clinic, or treatment, to choose to improve your appearance. By far the commonest non-surgical treatments offered by most clinics are anti-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers. Anti-wrinkle injections are mainly used to treat the upper face and to improve expression lines on the forehead, brow and around the eyes. It works by relaxing the muscle in these areas before softening the lines that have formed over the years. With regular treatment, these lines can actually disappear. Indeed there are a number of different brands of anti-wrinkle injections but they all essentially work in the same way.

SL

Dermal filler is generally used to treat the lower part of the face, especially lines around the nose, mouth, upper lip and chin areas. Dermal fillers are also used to give volume and shape to both upper and lower lips. There is a huge range of branded fillers, but the most well known is Restylane - the most trusted and recommended filler on the market. Fillers are injected along the facial lines to help lift and smoothen their appearance. Essentially they replace the hyaluronic acid in the skin that has been lost with age. At SL Medical we take the time to understand and address our client’s needs and expectations before taking any decision to treat. That is why we offer all our clients a free, no obligation consultation and provide expert advice on the range of treatments we offer. A fully qualified medical doctor performs all treatments. Visit our website at www.slmedical.co.uk for more information and testimonials from just a few of our clients.
