Warings Solicitors becomes Fylde Law

As many of us at some point in our lifetime are likely to need the services and support of a helpful, reliable and competent lawyer, Fylde Law take pride in making things as stress-free and easy to understand as they can, ensuring that our clients know what is going on at every stage of the legal process.”

Fylde Law is the new name for the recently merged firms of Warings Solicitors, Atkinson Cave & Stuart, Blackledge & Co and Ashley Fisher & Co, who cumulatively have provided over 150 years of legal advice on the Fylde. It also incorporates the old Fylde solicitors firms of Cameron and Ball and Baker, Hoyle and Lees.

Mary Lowe, Family and Probate Solicitor says “as solicitors we understand that legal matters can be highly complex and worrying and that many clients have personal and delicate issues that need handling with the utmost sensitivity and diligence. This is why each client is appointed a named solicitor with the relevant experience to manage their case from start to finish and provide a level of support that client needs. We believe this is the type of law firm people want to use.”


Although a new name, the same traditional values on which all four firms were founded – those of honesty and integrity, professionalism and doing the best for each and every client, still remain at the heart of everything they do. Gary McAnulty, a Director and Criminal Solicitor with the firm comments “the recent mergers and the decision to launch and operate under a new name marks an exciting and important time for the firm. We are committed to our roots and the history of service we have provided to the people of the Fylde over the last century and a half and look forward to delivering the same quality of service and advice as we have always done.

With offices in Blackpool and Lytham St. Annes, Fylde Law is dedicated to providing local people and businesses with access to expert legal knowledge experience and advice without the exasperating legal jargon and formality that often goes with it.

GARDENING Toby Musgrave

Shrubs for 

Here are a few suggestions for shrubs which do their thing in spring, and which if you plant them now, should give you a great show this year. So here are a handful of my favourites:

Magnolia stellata The star magnolia is a beautiful shrub with white flowers, which, as its name suggests, are arranged like a star. Not only are the flowers very delicate, but they are also sweetly scented, and open from attractive silky buds. It is relatively slow growing, but will eventually reach a height of 3m and a spread of 4m. It has quite a delicate scent and the narrow, deep green leaves that appear after the flowers are very attractive. It prefers an acid soil, but will live in a neutral one if you plant it in a rich loam and dose it annually with Sequestrene.

Daphne x burkwoodii 'Somerset'

Chaenomeles japonica The Japanese quince is often wrongly called simply 'Japonica'. It is a deciduous, thorny shrub grown for its bright red or redorange flowers and round, yellow fruits. The leaves are mid-green and oval in shape. It makes a fantastic wall shrub or hedge, but if left alone to be a freestanding shrub (it will reach 1m tall by 2m wide), it does become very untidy.

Both this species and its close relative, Chaenomeles speciosa (Flowering quince), which is slightly larger and bears clusters of bright red flowers from late winter until early spring, prefer well drained soil in a full sun location.

Advertise your business call 0800 970 7687 or email

This semi-evergreen upright shrub is a relative of the native Mezeron (Daphne mezereum) that is flowering right now, but instead of pink flowers it has white flowers that are fringed with pink. These appear in clusters and are so sweetly scented that on a still day one plant can make a whole garden smell wonderful. The leaves are lance shaped, pale to mid green and, given a position in full sun, the shrub will reach 1.5m tall by 1.5m wide. 19

o be successful, they should work as a practical space for the daily wash-and-go as well as being a haven dedicated to wellbeing and pampering. "Long gone are the days when the bathroom was simply a functional space. People are moving away from the Victorian-style basic bathroom and towards the modern, spacious spa feel," says Anthony Howells, bathrooms buyer for B&Q. "They want the clean lines, minimalism, wet rooms and walk-in doorless showers, enhanced by chunky floating yet stylish fixtures such as units and frosted glass, which they see when they stay in hotels and want to replicate." He predicts that, where space allows, the popularity of free-standing baths, becoming more sculptural in shape, will continue to grow as they provide a focal point in large bathrooms. Experimenting both with design and colour is a growing trend, according to Rita Rendo Castro, sales and marketing manager at Catchpole & Rye. "People are becoming increasingly design confident, with more opting to make a statement with a brightly-painted bath or patterned tiles," she says. "The bathroom is an ideal space to try out new colours in a small area which wouldn't necessarily work in a larger living space. Dove grey is a chic but safe choice for walls and gives a neutral base which can be enlivened by other colour choices. Salmon pink and yellow are one of my favourite combinations as they're elegant but have a warm, summery feel."

Taking the waters has never been more pleasurable so check out a bathroom solution for your home. 22

 Bathrooms are embracing technology so that they can be the ultimate, flexible retreats, says Cheryl Gurner, creative director at Bathrooms International. "The bathroom has benefited hugely from advances in technology in recent years. Bathroom-friendly flat screen televisions, fibre-optic lighting in showers which mimic a twinkling star effect and hidden speakers offering surround sound - all add up to the wow factor in this most personal space." While Paul Flowers, senior vice president of design at Grohe, predicts that the bathroom will be transformed in the next 10 years, as it develops into a space

fully-equipped to cater for health and wellbeing. "Developments in technology are already allowing us to equip it with personal lifestyle and health functions such as diagnostic mirrors, which measure and monitor the status of our physical health. "Lighting, projection and sound are bringing "entertainment" into the room, and can be programmed, just like showers, to precisely suit your mood at different times of the day. "As the barriers between the bedroom and the bathroom blur, the space will become more sensual, decorative and truly have the atmosphere of a fully-equipped indulgent zone."

Splash out: take a light-changing, moodenhancing shower with a colour range including green for balance, blue for relaxation and red for energy. Sky Shower Chromotherapy, from £3,500, from Bathrooms International.

The most thoughtful decision you could make At J T Byrne, two generations of the family work together to make funeral arrangements that little bit easier to handle at a time when you need help most.

With a pre-paid funeral plan, the cost of which is frozen at today’s price, you are protected against inflation and any other price increase, no matter how much they rise in the future.

Established in 1989, they are the only fully qualified, truly independent funeral directors in Thornton, It reassures you loved ones that your wishes will be Cleveleys & Fleetwood, and deliver a personal service recorded and carried out, and allows them to grieve with both professionalism and dignity. during a most difficult period of time. Dying is certainty of life, but it still remains a subject which some feel difficult to talk about. It means that, more often than not, funeral arrangements aren’t discussed or made in advance. This can, unfortunately mean wishes aren’t always met, and grieving families need to make arrangements at short notice during a very difficult time for them - emotionally & financially.

It also means that your family doesn’t have to worry about the money for your funeral to be paid for, it has already been taken care of. For more information on our pre-paid funeral plans, please telephone our office and we will send you more information or alternatively call in for a chat in person, the kettle is always on.

A funeral plan from your local independent funeral director makes perfect sense

With a Golden Charter funeral plan you’ll benefit from: • Protection against rising funeral costs • Reassurance for your family – no uncertainty or difficult decisions • Complete flexibility to choose the funeral you want • Guaranteed acceptance

THE HIGHS AND LOWS OF RACING Left: Eva Clare, Right: Happy owners at Wolverhampton

Eva Clare Shines on Debut


fter the setbacks of last year it’s nice to be able to report that everything is looking a lot more positive for 2014 with plenty of good news. First up was the debut of a 3yo filly Eva Clare who travelled down to Wolverhampton to contest a 5f maiden. She was a bit green leaving the stalls but soon made up the distance showing a smart turn of foot to do so and as they turned for home it became clear she was the only one challenging the red hot favourite for the lead. This however proved a step too far as she had to settle for 2nd place but their was no disgrace in that especially when you consider the winner had been running in Listed company over in Ireland last year. Another positive is that she was clear of the remainder who had all had previous experience and on this show she will definitely improve and could have a bright future in front of her. More good news is that Lokis Strike is well on his way back and is now cantering away, he will be readied up for what hopefully will be a successful Turf campaign from April onwards. New Arrival: Due to the fact we have sold Loki out and the Eva Clare syndicate is almost full we are now looking to bring in a 3rd horse that will be trained

again by Karl Burke. This will probably be done on a Lease based deal and one that will involve a horse that should run regularly and with a bit of luck do its fair share of winning. New Website: Continuing on with the positive news we are proud to unveil our new website which has been done in conjunction with a deal we have struck with top Web design company Bridgewater PR who are based in Warwickshire. Run by Marie Bridgewater who is the niece of the highly talented trainer David Bridgewater, it’s a deal that will see our website markedly improve and be kept up to date at all times. New Sponsorship deal: Another new development is the signing of a sponsorship deal for our horses with Karl Burkes company KB Spigot Lodge. This guarantees us stability with our horses and opens up a load of new benefits for the club which will be duly passed onto all our members. Anyone who would like to get involved with us or would like to know any more details about us can do so by contacting Geoff Holden 07852 153969 or Andy Eaton 07940 202312 or by visiting our new website

FY7 Community Beat Hello... It seems ages since I last wrote an article for The Link, in fact it was early December for the January edition and we’re now nearly into March!! Christmas was a relatively normal affair as far as policing goes, no major incidents locally, with the vast majority of people enjoying the festive period as it should be enjoyed, and no significant increases of any particular crimes to report. The drink driving incident I referred to in the last Link edition; the driver is now two months into an 18 month driving ban, has a fine of nearly £500 and is facing the prospect of losing his job with the obvious further implications this will have on him and his family – were those beers really worth it? My team are currently working flat out to deal with a core group of youths that are intent on causing misery to Fleetwood people, and despite interventions from many different agencies; most of them have escalated to committing crime repeatedly. A youth this week has been charged with two pretty nasty racist incidents in the town and will now face the courts again. A third similar incident which occurred in the town centre remains under active investigation with a large number of youths being interviewed before a file will be submitted to CPS for consideration to prosecute. Unfortunately, anti-social behaviour has increased in Fleetwood compared to previous years, you will know as well as I do the hotspot areas and those responsible, I can assure you we are doing everything within our powers to deal with those responsible as firmly as possible.
