ON REC Children like getting messy IPES in the kitchen, but there’s more to us than chocolate rice crispy cakes! Children who take part in the Kiddy Cook kitchen don’t just get to make a cake, they get to conduct a ‘volcano’ experiment to learn how carbon dioxide works to make their cakes and biscuits rise. They learn the difference between taste and flavour and think about the effect sound has on their ability to eat.

Lytham Window Company

t: 01253 762 811 web:www.lythamwindowco.co.uk Established in the 1980s by Dave Fletcher and joined shortly after by co-director Mark Hegarty, Lytham Windows is now moving into its fourth decade of trading, and is the longest established manufacturing UPVC company on the Fylde Coast. From humble beginnings to the purpose-built premises on Preston New Road, the company has come a long way, and over 100,000 retail, trade and commercial customers are testimony to its high standards of workmanship, service and quality. Managing Director Dave Fletcher said: “It’s fantastic the way our customers keep coming back to us time after time, and now, because we have been trading for so long, we are doing installations for our original customers’ grown-up children!” The prestige showroom has state of the art orangeries, doors, conservatories, and windows on display, all made to the highest standards in the on-site factory that can now make over 500 frames a week.

What has kept Lytham Windows the market leader all these years? “The customer is the most important person in the world,” Dave explained. “I insist on the highest standards of workmanship and professionalism from my staff, so customers know that each installation will be carried out cleanly and efficiently. “There is no high-pressure selling here, all quotes are put in writing so the customer can decide at their leisure, and each job carries a no-quibble 15-year guarantee along with a ten-year insurance-backed guarantee. “We are also a FENSA-registered company, which means that every installation is registered and certified as meeting as building regulations.” Competitive pricing and up-to-date computer technology, together with years of experience explain the company’s ever-growing popularity. And it is a well-known fact that consumers buy from people they like, so with the staff turnover at Lytham Windows so low, the same friendly faces greet customers time and time again.

Bispham Junior Football Federation News

BJFF – Club House / Sports Hall Development – New 3G Surface… BJFF are delighted to announce that our indoor sports hall has been fully re-fitted with a state of the art 3G Astro-Turf surface, a far safer and football friendly surface for all of our boys and girls to experience. The 3G surface is a significant investment in our children, and will be opened officially on Saturday 24th March. A huge thank-you to local firm JP CONTRACTS who undertook the work. BJFF - Football for ALL SKILLS Academy Initiative – Re-Branding... Our Football for ALL initiative has now been re-branded “Football for ALL Skills Academy” and welcomes children who are new to football, or who would just like some extra training, with the emphasis on a fun and friendly environment. Headed up by Level 2 coaches, Joe Rooney and Adam Monk, we have two age-group sessions on a Sunday morning. We welcome Boys and Girls aged between 4 and 8, each and every Sunday, from 10:00am - 11:15am, and then from 11:15am until 12:30pm we welcome Boys and Girls aged between 9 and 13. Trainers, Football Boots, Shin Pads and a Drink recommended. The BJFF Club House is on the corner of Kelvin Road and Carr Road. Training will be mainly indoors during the winter months, but when the weather permits we will be training outside. Newcomers will be given a warm welcome and ALL SQUAD children are encouraged to attend. Each regular participant will be presented with their very own Skills Academy tangerine training kit. If you are interested in coming along, with your son or daughter, you can simply turn up at the Club House on Sunday morning, or pre-book with Andy Griffiths on 07884 476954 (andygriff71@yahoo.co.uk). The first session is FREE, and then it’s £3 thereafter. BJFF - Fund-Raising and Social Events... Our Fund-Raising and Social Team are always on the lookout for donations of Raffle Prizes, Auction items, and items which are suitable for a Tombola...no matter how large or small...if you would like to contribute to our fund-raising efforts by way of donating a raffle prize or an item we could auction at one of our events, please contact Kelly on 07780 856252 to arrange for collection. Our first Club fund-raising / social event of the year has been announced, with the return of “BJFF Does Hells Kitchen” on Monday 2nd April, from 19:30 onwards at The Red Lion. With BJFF squad coaches and managers manning the kitchen and bar, come along to be served a delightful 3 course meal, with 3 choices of starters, mains and dessert, with fabulous entertainment (the outstanding swing singing sensation Paul Guard) provided for our diners, all for a value-packed £9.95.

Shaw, have notched up back-to-back wins, 2-1 at Home to BCSC Blues, in which Rebecca picked up her first PoM award, and 6-1 away to Great Harwood, with PoM Kathryn Lomas scoring 4 goals, showing that the hard work our girls have been putting in with their new coaching team has reaped rewards. In the Lancashire Evening Post Youth League, our Premier Division title challenging Youth team have picked up where they left off, and have 6 points out of 6 with two narrow 2-1 victories keeping up their excellent run, with some title deciders to come in the closing weeks of the season. Onto Blackpool and District Youth League action, and the team of the month with 2 wins out of 2, scoring 19 goals for and conceding 6, was our Under 13’s, who followed up a 12-3 win at home to Warton Typhoons (Callum O’Neil scoring 5, and Adam Murphy 4) with a 7-3 away win against FC Rangers Stripes, with hattricks from Harvey Poland and Ryan Walsh. In Hogan Cup Quarter-Final action, MoM Tyler Rainey scored 4 goals in our Under 11’s Blades 7-0 romp at home to FC Rangers; a Semi-Final berth secured with the prize of walking out at Bloomfield Road in the Hogan Cup Final now up for grabs. In league action, a good 1-1 draw against Kirkham Juniors showed a marked improvement on the result between the same two teams earlier in the season. Also through to the Hogan Cup Semi Finals are our Under 16’s, who won a thrilling Quarter Final 4-3 away to AFC Blackpool. Congratulations and Good Luck to both teams for their Semi Finals at the end of March. Our other Hogan Cup Quarter Finalists, our Under 15’s Whites, were knocked out in a close fought game away to Lancashire County Cup Runners-Up, South Shore, eventually succumbing to a 1-3 defeat. But, in League action our Whites form maintained a high level, securing three consecutive victories, scoring 22 goals against 2 in the process. Our Under 16’s suffered from a Cup hangover, losing their two league games in the month, both by narrow margins (2-3 away to Fleetwood Town, and 1-3 at home to local rivals Blackpool Rangers). Our Under 14’s maintained their title challenging, topping the table with 6 points out of 6 during the month, with 9 goals scored and 0 conceded, thanks in the main to the goalkeeping exploits of Matty Greenhalgh. Our Under 12’s Blades lost a hard fought league game against title challengers YMCA (0-2), but progressed in the Plate competition, beating Staining 5-2, with Charlie Wood putting his injury nightmares behind him with a hat-trick. Our Under 12’s Predators provided some thrilling entertainment, and edge of the seat stuff, being involved in 4 games which were decided by the odd goal, losing out 1-2 twice and 0-1, but also securing a 2-1 victory, playing some fantastic football in the process.
