JULY 2011 Editors Letter

Welcome to our JULY edition of LINK, its been a great last month with the fantastic FY5 Carnival so well done to all that took part and made this year a special one. Rossall Beach Community Association conducted its first fund raising event and raised over £455 so well done to all that turned up. You may also have noticed a slight change to our covers and design as we’ve given it a fresh look. LINK would also like to features more local news and events as we rely on you the community to supply us with information, as we are happy to print most things for FREE. Don’t forget coming up this month on the 17th July is the return of the biggest FREE event of its kind, the Fleetwood Festival of Transport “Tram Sunday 2011” and I believe a tram will be present on the day, so lets support it! LINK had the pleasure of creating the programme for the event so look out soon for copies. Congratulations LINK-Spotter John Heyes of Fleetwood who won our ‘Where am I?’ Competition. £50 is on its way to you. Also well done to M Clark of Thornton for winning your free MOT at James Jacksons.

GET IT COVERED, GET IN LINK! Many Thanks

Blackpool Windows and Solar Energy (BWSE) Is a family run business that has been supplying and fitting quality doors, windows and conservatories across the Fylde Coast and Lancashire for many years. The company has recently expanded into green energy conservation by including PV panels in its portfolio of products. David Williams, the proprietor of BWSE said ‘PV panels are fitted onto the roof of domestic and commercial properties and convert the suns energy into electrical energy which is the current that we use in our houses By generating this energy you can help power your own home and also receive a guaranteed feed in tariff from the

16

Government for the next 25 years and the tariff is index linked so will keep pace with inflation. It’s a fantastic way to beat the inevitable electricity bill rises and to also receive an income from the Government. We can take you through the initial design to the final installation and will ensure all your questions are answered so that you are fully aware of the system and requirements. We also complete all the paperwork to obtain the feed in tariff so that the whole process is easy and painfree’. Companies have to adhere to a strict accreditation process which provides reassurance to the customer that the work and system is being fitted to the correct standards. PV panels have already taken off in other parts of the country and demand has increased with the recent

announcements of price rises by the energy companies. Some forecasters predict the increase could be as high as 19% so it makes sense to be get ready now and not have to worry this winter. BWSE also continue to provide doors, windows and conservatories as well as PV panels so if you would like more information about any of these product please call us on 01253 824109/07753583602. There are no flashy salesman and no hard sell methods, we want our customers to be 100% happy with the quality, workmanship and price from Blackpool Windows Solar and Energy and most of our work comes from returning customers and recommends. Start making money today and install PV panels onto your roof, you’ll be glad you did.

Introducing… The Peel2Save fundraising card is one of the most efficient and effective ways for charities, schools, clubs, youth groups and other non-profit organisations to raise much needed money.

The Ultimate .Super Simple High Profit Fundraiser! The Peel2Save fundraising card is a brilliant way for charities to raise much needed money. Peel2Save cards are credit-card sized – so they fit neatly into a purse or wallet. They contain 64 individual peel off coupons each one promoting a great local business. In total the offers are typically worth well over £300 – and all the offers are local to you.

You sell the cards for £10 each and get to keep £5 from every card sold. Because the cards offer such great value – and all the businesses featured are local to you (each card is built and pulled together by our local co-ordinator in your area) many organisations are selling hundreds of cards in only 2-3 weeks – which means very significant funds are raised very quickly.

The consumer wins, you win and local businesses benefit too. It’s a total community effort where everybody gains.

Paul Gailey “ A

Week in my life as Councillor” “Paul Galley was elected to Blackpool Council to represent Anchorsholme alongside popular longstanding Councillor Tony Williams six weeks ago. For many people who wonder what a local Councillor does Paul Galley has written a diary of his seven days as a Councillor. Friday: Saw me join the board of Blackpool Transport and as someone who is passionate about public transport and uses buses and trams on a daily basis this was a very proud moment for me. The reason I originally got involved in politics was to one day build a new bus station in Blackpool which will allow us to catch a bus, train, tram taxi all from the same place, so to be on the board of Blackpool Transport is a step in the right direction for getting this done. Saturday: Following a letter to the Blackpool Gazette asking for donations for our summer fair at East Pines Park, I picked up a number of donations by some very kind residents of Anchorsholme. In the afternoon I attended the charity concert at the Golden Eagle arranged by the Fletcher family to raise money for Blackpool Victoria Hospital’s Macmillan Cancer Unit & The Christie Hospital in Manchester. The bands and singers were brilliant and everyone enjoyed it especially the singing of the children from Anchorsholme Primary School.

School Room on Beaufort Avenue and I highly recommend everyone to come along. Tuesday: At 6.30pm we had our Friends of East Pines Park Meeting which I thoroughly enjoyed. I’m the Secretary of the Friends Group and we have some really great people involved so not only do we get to improve the park we have a lot of fun doing it. The meeting involved the members (membership is free, please contact me if you would like to join), Parks Department and Fire Brigade planning our Summer Fair on the 9th July. Over a cup of tea we finalised the details for what promises to be a great day. I love the Friends Group as it’s a great example of what I love about Anchorsholme and that is great people giving up their time to improve the area we live in. Wednesday: I had planned to help on the new Community Garden that we are building at St Teresa’s but the evening work was cancelled so I used the time to catch up with emails and put together some plans for a new community group, I’m in the process of setting up: The Friends of Anchorsholme Park. Thursday: Following my meeting with the Sandhurst Area Panel on Monday, I arranged to meet a lovely lady from Age Concern Blackpool (soon to be Age UK) as for those that aren’t aware, close to 47% of Anchorsholme’s population are retired so I’m very keen to establish two things, one is a local support base as regards help and information on support services for the elderly in Anchorsholme and support to lots of local groups which provide entertainment and information for the elderly. It was a really good meeting and I learnt alot which will go a long way to help me to help the elderly in our area.

After the meeting, I then had a meeting with the Health Committee in Blackpool and found myself sat next to Aidan Kehoe the Chief Executive of Blackpool, Fylde & Wyre Hospitals NHS Foundation. I thoroughly enjoyed the meeting and it was great to talk to the experts about our local NHS and it’s plans for the future. I asked Aidan Kehoe about funding for the NHS and his Sunday: Met up with our local MP Paul Maynard hopes for the future and what impressed me was his and talked to him about the effects of spending cuts in honesty and his enthusiasm to deliver. He mentioned Blackpool and relayed some concerns given to me by the use of new technology that is being delivered which constituents on local and national issues. will improve care for stoke victims around Lancashire Monday: Had my first meeting with the Sandhurst Area and it was very much Britain at it’s best, a combination Panel which is responsible for organising the Sandhurst of imagination, enthusiasm and ingenuity. I’m a passionate supporter of the NHS so it was an honour Area Forum covering Anchorsholme, Norbrek and to talk and meet with the different care deliverers at the Bispham. The forum brings together different bodies meeting.” from the Police, Fire Brigade, Blackpool Council, Age Concern and the people who live in the three wards to Many thanks Paul Galley discuss concerns and issues and best of all deal with Councillor for Anchorsholme those concerns and issues. The next area Forum will be on the 11th July at 7pm at Bispham Methodist

Rossall Beach Fundraising Rossall Beach Residents & Community Group were out in force on Sunday holding their first fundraising event of 2011. The skies managed to behave themselves for once, after postponing the event due to bad weather on the previous two weekends! Cars were in position in the parking area on Rossall Promenade early in the morning, tables were positioned and the flags were out, and the table top sale started at 12 noon. A wide range of bric-a-brac and good quality clothes, toys and knick-knacks were sold through the afternoon to raise funds for the improvement of the public areas, and a huge ÂŁ455.44 in total was raised.

40

The afternoon was also a chance to introduce people to the work of the group and 23 new members were signed up, most of whom live in the area, some had moved here recently, and all of them thought that it was a worthwhile cause that they wanted to support. Rossall Beach Residents & Community Group is open to membership from anyone who uses the beach and promenade and wants to join in with its preservation and improvement for everyones enjoyment. There will be other events like this through the summer so you have still got chance to get involved. Watch the Visit Cleveleys website for dates and news all outside events are subject to weather. You might like to come along and join in with the next community beach clean on 11 July - meet at 9.30am on Rossall Promenade
