“DIAMONDS ARE FOREVER”…… ….. occasionally with a superb ruby!

Over the centuries, gold and diamonds have been seen as something to mark special occasions, such as engagements, weddings, birthday presents and by some they are a seen as a sound investment for the future, particularly when stock markets cannot to be relied upon for good returns. We all know how gold has shot up in value and it is interesting to note that diamonds , particularly diamond rings,are also fetching good prices. The key thing with diamonds however is the quality in terms of clarity, colour and cut etc. The pictures on this page illustrate three different diamond rings sold at Gerrards Auction Rooms, in recent months – one with superb ruby. So, if you have a good looking diamond ring, that has been lurking in a drawer or jewellery box, for many years, why not bring it to Gerrards to see what it might be worth – you may be pleasantly surprised.

Lytham St Annes News

Mayor-elect urges Jubilee effort Charity worker and mother Heather Speak is became the Fylde’s first citizen at the borough’s mayor-making ceremony held on 16th May. The theme of Councillor Speak’s civic year will be planting trees in every town and village to mark the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee – and she is urging all Fylde residents to join celebrations by decorating homes and businesses with flags, balloons and bunting. Councillor Speak says she is delighted that Freckleton’s Parochial Church Council and Freckleton Parish Council have already written to her to say they will plant 10 trees on Friday 18 May. She has written to other bodies borough-wide – and hopes there will eventually be many more. Heather, councillor for Newton and Treales since 1999 and mother of four, said: “Freckleton are doing a great job. I hope people across Fylde will join in making the Jubilee a celebration to remember. “It’s a real honour to be mayor in such a momentous year – we have the Open Golf, the Olympic torch and the Diamond Jubilee. “There is a campaign nationally to plant woodlands for the Jubilee. A woodland locally would be fantastic but even just planting individual trees will be a way of commemorating this year for ever.”

Councillor Speak is married to Frank and mother to Sam, Sally, Fred and Charlotte. The Christie Hospital gained £7,000 last year from Councillor Speak’s charity work after Charlotte needed treatment there four years ago. Son Sam died in a car crash almost two years ago. Councillor Speak, a resident of Wharles, will be joined by Councillor Peter Collins, also a Newton and Treales councillor, as Deputy Mayor. The new “first citizens” will succeed Mayor and Deputy Mayor Howard Henshaw and Kevin Eastham at the Mayor-making ceremony. Councillor Speak added: “People in Fylde in very generous and I hope they will support the coming year’s mayoral charities. “I’ve been raising money locally at every stage of my adult life and don’t intend to stop now.” This year’s Civic Sunday will be held at Christ Church in Treales at 11am on Sunday 3 June. The Civic Sunday celebration is a Fylde tradition that is traditionally held on the first Sunday after Mayor-making. Voluntary organisations and members of the public are welcome to attend. The service will be conducted by the Rev Julie Jones, the Mayor’s chaplain. Freckleton Brass Band will play as the procession moves into the church and again after the service.

Residents from the Fylde gathered on Sunday at St Cuthbert’s in Lytham to discuss and question the proposed hydraulic fracturing (fracking) in the area. Drilling company Cuadrilla Resources is seeking the green light to go ahead with fracking at Preese Hall farm, Singleton. A further 800 sites are also being considered in the area for fracking. Gayzer Tarjanyi of Residents Action on Fylde Fracking (RAFF) and ‘No Cuadrilla Lytham’ invited residents of both the Fylde and other areas that could be affected by fracking; a highly controversial practice of extracting gas from shale by drilling deep into the ground and pushing through vast quantities of fresh water and chemicals. Independent Engineer Mike Hill, an adviser to Fylde Borough Council Task & Finish Group on Fracking gave up his time to give a well-informed presentation and answered questions at the meeting; attended by more than 80 concerned individuals from as far afield as Manchester. Ministers to allow fracking in the Fylde Hill highlighted the technical detail of the processes of hydraulic fracturing as well as addressing the issues of regulation and responsibility. Currently, there is still no clarity on which department has complete accountability or what official regulations are in place by the Department of Energy and Climate Change(DECC) or The Health & Safety Executive(HSE). Despite this, the DECC report on ‘Induced Seismic Mitigation’ that came out last week, advises Ministers to allow fracking in the Fylde.

resident at the meeting said she had no idea that there were so many wells planned for the area and that each would require the use of up to 500 trucks during the process. This was a concern echoed by many who attended, as was the issue of regulation of the fracking industry. “Do you want your kids at risk from this stuff?” A new member of RAFF who attended the meeting, Tina Rothery: “I have deep worries about fracking and feel like we do not have a say in what is being planned. It feels like we are simply being told not to worry because Cuadrilla will ensure safety for us. I don’t think that’s good enough; I want my government to take responsibility, not a private drilling company with profit as a prime motivator. Fracking worsens our air quality, brings a huge amount of traffic and activity to each well, increases the risks of earthquakes and puts our water supply at risk from the dangerous chemicals used in the fracking process. Chemicals used include some pretty awful threats to our health, including benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene and xylene. Do you want your kids at risk from this stuff?” Most in attendance have vowed to find out more about how the fracking operations will affect the area; with many planning on writing to their insurance companies to find out how this will affect premiums and property values. The Royal Society for the Protection for Birds and the Royal Horticultural Society are also being approached for their views. There was a clear determination from people at the meeting that they will be continuing to meet, share information and push for answers.

Tarjanyi chaired the meeting that included two films; representing Cuadrilla’s assurances of safety as well as the concerns, risks and evidence of ongoing harm in the USA: “We would like to take this opportunity to applaud Mike Hill on his dogged determination to give up so much of his time and self finance his one man crusade to pursue strict regulations on fracking. “ Hill has dedicated the past 18 months to exploring the regulations, responsibility and practice of fracking and communicated extensively with all parties involved: DECC, HSE, Cuadrilla, concerned citizens and action groups.

Tarjanyi offered to provide the PA system, projector and screen to any community seeking to inform their residents of the dangers and directed those at the meeting to the RAFF website www.stopfyldefracking.org.uk : “After four meetings this has been shown to be the best way to give residents information and contacts to be able to voice their concerns and be able to act. As well as giving factual information that Cuadrilla didn’t give on their recent three-town PR tour of the Fylde(St Annes, Elswick & Wesham). Being a Children’s Entertainer I felt I may be able to shed a light on the fact that may be lost in all the overwhelming information; that this is on the biggest events that we face in our life time here on the Fylde and is the legacy we will leave to our children if we do not act now, while we still can.”

The well-attended meeting went on longer than the planned three hours as the number of questions reflected wide-spread concerns. A

business, and she sat down with us and before we could stop her she launched into our fortune, saying that we would have a successful business and a house by the sea with a garden full of flowers, which we dismissed at the time, but she was spot on’ said Jane Littlewood who edits the websites.

Postcard from Lytham & St. Annes Residents and visitors to the Fylde Coast are in for a treat when they go online, with the launch of the brand new Visit LYTHAM & Visit ST.ANNES website, all about this fabulous spot at the coast. Plus, you can now enjoy a full range of seven interlinked sites covering the coast from Fleetwood to Lytham, with all kinds of information about the places, from the community, interesting people, local companies, and local chit-chat. Put together in a friendly and incredibly personal way, the publishers share their own local experiences in a way that everyone can relate to, especially with items like the blogs.

The new sites are full of easy to find stories and information, and you can follow your own area but also easily keep an eye on what’s happening elsewhere. Jane added ‘More than anything we want to build local interest, community spirit and local pride in what are a fabulous range of towns – the kind of local interest that’s missing elsewhere in the UK and which has seen the decline of other seaside towns – we believe that if we provide a vehicle for shouting about what we’ve got we can make the Fylde Coast an enviable place to visit and live in’.

If you’ve got anything to tell us just email jane@theRabbitPatch.co.uk or ring 07932 143431.

Ironically, a chance encounter with a charm selling gypsy on the beach near the Queens Hotel over 20 years ago had foretold that this would happen, incredible as it seemed at the time. ‘We were on holiday at the Queens, long before we started our
