Unmanageable debt problems can happen quickly. Financial and personal circumstances change unexpectedly: unemployment, divorce or unexpected bills arrive, and before you realise, you are deeper and deeper in debt. You start missing minimum monthly payments, you are charged for late payments and everything can seem out of control. Afraid to open the mail and answer the telephone, your money problems escalate and stress becomes unbearable. Aspire has helped individuals for ten years. We do not lend money and are not driven by commission earned from arranging loans. We realise individual’s problems are unique: 10

our counsellers deal with the problems one to one, and give the best advice to suit your circumstances. We liaise with creditors to arrange a monthly repayment and aim to freeze interest/charges on your unsecured debt thereby reducing your monthly payments and your financial stress. Our counsellors are happy to discuss your worries in complete confidence. You inform Aspire who your unsecured debts are with, we then prepare a statement of income and expenditure, calculate your monthly surplus income to share between your unsecured creditors and negotiate an affordable monthly repayment programme with them. We make payments on your behalf, acting as a buffer between you and your creditors. We reduce the financial burden and put you back in control of your finances.

If you feel that Aspire could be of assistance, please call today, and you can start the journey to regain control of your finances, at no initial cost to yourself. Advertise Call 0800 970 7687

Skyways window repair and restoration When we experience problems with our windows or conservatories, often we bury our heads in the sand to avoid the vast expense of replacing them. Few people know that there is no need to replace old windows. Double glazed windows, whether they are uPVC, aluminium or hardwood can all be restored to ‘good as new’ if not ‘better than new’ condition. As our Lancaster customer base continues to grow through word of mouth, due to popular demand we are delighted to have expanded our team in order to provide a dedicated call-out service (no charge) for this area. Restoring your windows is not only a minor expense compared to replacement but it is also really easy. There is no mess or hassle, no need to redecorate and our teams pride themselves on leaving your home in immaculate condition. You wouldn’t spend thousands of pounds on a car and not have it serviced – windows are exactly the same. Well maintained windows will last you and give you value for money whereas ignoring problems inevitably make them worse. As part of our full service, our technicians refurbish or replace the drainage channels, weather

seals, gaskets, silicone sealants, hinges, locking mechanisms, handles and frames. When cleaning and restoring uPVC, we use our own solution designed by chemical engineers exclusively for Skyways. It’s also completely unique, aswell as restoring your uPVC back to its former glory, most importantly, it protects and preserves too. After our service, your home will look better, be more safe and secure AND it will be warmer - so you needn’t spend as much on energy bills! For your peace of mind, all our work is fully guaranteed. We can also advise you about options for Thermal Glass to give your home extra protection from the elements and to save you even more on your energy bills. If traffic noise (or your neighbours!) are a concern, we also supply and install Acoustic Glass which significantly reduces sound pollution. So if you’re thinking about having your windows replaced or you are experiencing any problems with them, please give us a call and speak to one of our team. Alternatively, visit our website for more information, our gallery and testimonials. We’re a small family run business – the majority of our work comes from word of mouth. You won’t get a better or more personal service than the one we provide. Skyways are the trusted experts; here to help with all your window concerns. So, don’t replace your old windows, repair and restore them for a fraction of the cost.

DON’T REPLACE YOUR OLD WINDOWS... Repair & Restore them for a fraction of the cost!

alling all National Hunt fans, the Mount Racing Club are pleased to announce that we have teamed up with leading Jumps trainer Micky Hammond to bring us our very first horse that will be aimed at races over fences throughout the winter months. The plan is to run it from October through to the end of March on a lease only based deal. This allows us to offer shares in it without the initial one off purchase payment that is usually charged, therefore meaning that a monthly fee to cover training and racing fees is all that is needed. “How much will it cost?” We hear you say, well there are a couple of options that will certainly appeal and suit all budgets. Firstly you can take a 2.5% share which will be covered by a monthly fee of £70 with nothing else to pay. This can be taken by a sole person or if you want to team up with a friend it can be shared costing each person £35 each. Another option is a 5% share which comes in at £135 per month. This again can be taken by a sole person or can be split between 3 friends costing them £45 each. All prices quoted are final and there are no added extras. Every time the horse runs everyone who is involved will be invited along and will receive Owners badges giving you access to all areas and a share of any prize money won along the way. We are also planning a stable visit to Micky Hammonds stables which are based in the heart of the picturesque village Middleham set in the Yorkshire Dales. Anyone who would like to join us and see the horse and and the rest of Mickys stables are more

than welcome to join us. Saturday 20th July saw our annual Owners day out and the beautiful setting of Ripon Racecourse was this years chosen venue. This is an event that is proving quite popular now and one where each Mount Racing Club receives a complimentary badge for the day. A glorious sunny day ensured a good turn out and were pleased to say that we were able to find plenty of winners as well along the way. Roll on next years day. As we reported in last months edition about both our horses being injured, this month we are now pleased to say that both are well on there way back and should be racing very soon. Loki has been cantering up the gallops on the High Moor and there are no ill effects on his damaged tendon. Eva Clare is probably about a couple of weeks behind him but again is showing no ill effects. Karl and the team think a lot of her and think she is going to be a filly with a very bright future in front of her

Anyone who would like to know more or get involved can do so by contacting Geoff on 07852 153969 or Andy on 07940 202312 or by visiting our website 40
