SAVE MONEY ? HELP THE ENVIRONMENT ? RETURN SANITY TO YOUR HOME ? For too long we have been throwing out perfectly good electrical items such as televisions, sky boxes, hi-fi equipment, computers and laptops simply because they have developed faults. Not so long ago a television would last you 10-15years and probably require a service or repair every couple of years. Not so now with televisions lasting no more than 18months. So why not SAVE YOUR MONEY and have it repaired? One problem has been the demise of many local repair companies: many did not keep up with the emerging technologies and simply went out of business. The answer is simple, contact THE ELECTRONICS WORKSHOP LTD, a local company offering the very best service to local people. Can we repair your faulty items? You will be surprised at just what we can repair. We also supply new and reconditioned televisions.. For the price of a local call RING US ON 01253 857819 or after hours on 07973293761

Terry Lambe Fleetwood Football Club’s Community Development Manager said, “Fleetwood Football Club is very much part of the local community and the Chair and Board are very supportive of the Town.” Margaret Lund Chair of the Fleetwood 175 committee said, “It was a fantastic day. The Mayor of Wyre, Russell Forysth and the Mayoress, Mrs Christine Forsyth attended along with other VIPs. The football match was very entertaining and the Mayor and Mayoress met all the players. Some 170 children and young people, led by the Mayor and Mayoress of Wyre, took part in the Pride of Fleetwood Parade around the football ground at half time. This consisted of schools, youth organisations and churches who all received very loud applause. After the match the crowd was entertained by Fleetwood Sea Cadets Old Boys Band who were wonderful, receiving a standing ovation. The Fleetwood Royalettes Morris Dancers performed to an enthusiastic audience who stood and cheered. I was proud to be there supporting our community and our armed forces. This was another first for Fleetwood.” Chair Margaret Lund tel no. 01253 777819

Valantino Oys ter

THE MOUNT RACING CLUB NEWS UPDATE

With the Flat season well under way now The Mount Racing Club have made a pleasing start to it both on and off the track with a couple of good runs and a new arrival to bolster our ranks.

on Wednesday 1st June at Ripon. Off the course we are delighted to have teamed up with Group1 winning trainer Karl Burke and have purchased a 4yo with him called LORD LANSING. Karl trains out of Spigot Lodge at Middleham and his stables are one of the best equipped in the North of England, he has a wealth of experience at the highest level and we are really looking forward to working with him. Lord Lansing is a proven winner having already won twice and is very lightly raced with scope for bags of improvement. He is in full training and hopefully his next run won’t be too far away.

We have share packages available in both Horses On course Valantino Oyster has run twice and finished and more details can be found on our website in the money on both occasions, 4th at Redcar and 3rd www.themountracingclub.co.uk or you can contact Geoff 07852153969 or Andy 07940202312. at Catterick where he was returned at the rather generous odds of 25/1 and rewarded all the Mount Racing Club members who had made the journey to the Yorkshire track with a nice little each way gamble.

Both these runs prove that Valantino is a consistent horse and one who’s turn for winning can not be too far away. We now aim to keep him at the 1m4f trip which seems to suit and have lined up a race for him

KMC TRADING “Kath McBride? Did you she use to work at the Yacht Shop? “ Yes, most people in the yachting world will know Kath, a prominent face for many years at the Yacht Shop, later to become a Manager at FTS Group.

Offering a wide and diverse range of products and services, including Yachting/Marine products, Rope, PPE Equipment, RYA Course Equipment, Chandlery, Flags, Tools and Giftware, FTS is the place to go.. Visit the website www.kmctrading.co.uk for more information regarding products and services provided

But back in February as most people will now know FTS Group sadly closed its doors after 99 years of serving Fleetwood and the North West of England. Not to be deterred by being made redundant, the following day Kath went out and bought office equipment, determined to set up her own business. With the help of trusted colleague, Anita Wainwright, they set to planning and contacting old FTS customers. With a lot of leg work and determination KMc Trading was born, and on the 6th of April 2011 started trading. Kath is a true inspiration to anyone thinking about starting their own business. “It is not always easy and there are many hurdles along the way, but there is plenty of help out there. It has been both scary and exiting but I am confident that we can make it work!”
