Protect Your Family’s Inheritance Against Care Home Fees We spend our working lives providing for our families, paying taxes and saving for retirement. Many of us fear that our children’s inheritance will be lost to pay for Care Home fees in later life. The 7 Year Myth Some people believe that transferring their home into their children’s names prevents the Local Authority from including the property in their assessment for care fees if the gift was made more than 7 years ago. THIS IS A MYTH. The so-called “7 year rule” does not apply to Local Authority means tests for care fees. Property Protection Trust Wills The Wills and Trusts Lawyer can enable you to legally safeguard at least 50% of the value of your home being lost to fund care home fees. The cost of this protection is less than one weeks care home fees.

Wills from £95 Bloodline Wills - step families Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) from £150 Probate from £795

Concerned care home fees or re-marriage may reduce your children’s inheritance?

Thank you from Bennetts Bennetts of Fleetwood want to say a big thank you to all their customers as they celebrate over 12 years of business in the town. Serving the local area, Bennetts are going from strength to strength, with customers old and new who are very happy with their product range and service. David Bennett, an experienced local time-served Ophthalmic Technician and experienced dispenser, feels that “the personal touch they offer” is often missing in today’s Optical mass market, where customers are pushed through the system and persuaded to buy extra pairs and coatings that they don’t need. Working along with David, there is Nicola and Steve, highly experienced Optometrists, and Fel and Sandra our friendly and efficient Receptionists and Optical Advisors. Bennetts offer a personal service, where customers are offered not just a wide product range and competitive prices, but also receive glasses that meet their needs and budget and that fit properly, plus correct the customer’s vision accurately. “We are thrilled to find that we are being recommended time and time again by customers to their family & friends, who love our wide range, competitive prices and personal service”, said David. David and his team, look forward to seeing customers, both old & new and to assisting them with their Optical needs. Bennetts of Fleetwood, your local opticians.

There has never been anything quite like The

Red Hot Chilli Pipers, from their formation in 2002 and a cameo appearance at T in the Park in 2004 with the Darkness to opening the main stage in their own right in 2014. The past fifteen years has seen the Red Hot Chilli Pipers become the most famous bagpipe band on the planet…ever! Bagpipes with attitude, drums with a Scottish accent and a show that carries its own health warning.

Championship titles and all seriously good players with impressive credentials and qualifications.

The band’s achievements have reached incredible heights with their groundbreaking fusion of traditional Scottish music and rock/pop Anthems which they proudly call “Bagrock”. The Red Hot Chilli Pipers are a genuinely unique experience.

In 2014, The Chilli Pipers released a new live DVD and CD entitled `Live at the Lake`. In an explosive evening of entertainment captured on this live DVD and CD, The Red Hot Chilli Pipers recorded their most adventurous project to date, bringing 16 musicians and dancers across the Atlantic to perform at Milwaukee Irish Fest, the US spiritual home of the band. They captured the unique and explosive power of the Chilli Pipers in one unforgettable evening by the shores of Lake Michigan. Tracks include Insomnia, Gimme All Your Lovin', Thunderstruck, Everybody Dance Now, Amazing Grace, Fix You, Chasing Cars, Wake Me Up, Don’t Stop Believin and We Will Rock You.

The Chillis have never been more in demand for their infectious style of feel good music which appeals right across the age range to people all over the world. They have collected together an impressive group of musicians, dancers and singers from Scotland and further afield, many holding World

In February 2019, the Pipers and Tom Walker released a new version of his massive hit “Leave a Light On”. The release is in aid of Nordoff Robins, the music therapy charity and it went straight into the iTunes top five. The collaboration came about after Tom performed with the Red Hot Chilli Pipers
