Top Quality Carpets At Up To 70% Off Normal Prices Brook Mill Discount Carpets are part of Mountain & Cowell Carpets of Lytham. They are a family run business established in 1950, with their showroom located at 14 Market Square, Lytham. Owner Phil Murphy set up Brook Mill Discount Carpets a year ago and it has gone from strength to strength. He explains why ‘We have a well established client base, built up over many years but I was looking for a way to increase the business. I had a warehouse at Brook Mill in Wrea Green so decided to start taking up the offers and opportunities from my suppliers to buy full rolls and in bulk, as opposed to cut lengths for specific customers, at better prices.’ But Brook Mill is different because generally the discount carpet sheds don’t have the accounts with all the leading brands that we have, and so have to offer lower quality carpets. Our customers get the highest quality from leading suppliers but at discount shed prices!! With up to 70% off normal prices”. Carpets from Brook Mill can be delivered free of charge and fitting can be arranged if neccesary.

Dont replace your conservatory roof, just insulate it !


osy Conservatory is a Lytham based conservatory insulation specialist that transforms the inside of your conservatory roof, to give it a fully insulated, strong, and smooth plastered ceiling, whilst keeping the original shape of your roof. It does all this without even having to change anything on the outside of your conservatory, so no planning permission is required. After cross-ventilating the ceiling, Cosy Conservatory installs a high performance composite insulation to the inside ceiling of the conservatory, there are multiple layers of reflective and insulating materials to reduce heat-loss by a stunning 90%. No other conservatory insulation solution can deliver anywhere near this figure. Your conservatory will stay warm in the Winter, and prevent the ‘greenhouse effect’ during Summer. You’ll therefore need to use far less energy to keep your conservatory warm, drastically reducing energy costs. After the support framework, cross ventilation, insulation and panelling is installed, the conservatory ceiling will then be plastered to perfection, allowing it to be painted in the colour of your choice. The entire process takes just 1 to 3 days to complete, depending on the size of the conservatory. Your conservatory ceiling will no longer look like a conservatory ceiling, but instead will match perfectly with all the other rooms of your house. And because the entire conservatory will be strengthened and insulated rain noise is reduced by 95%, so you can enjoy that dinner party without worrying whether it’s going to rain.



Amazingly it has all these benefits, whilst at the same time costing less, on average, than ceiling blinds, and a quarter of the cost of plastic tile effect roof, making it the most cost effective solution available.

The complete interior design specialists ‘It’s great you’ve got all the latest styles and designs!’ not an unusual comment from recent clients of Lords new Soft Furnishing and Interior Design Service. With exclusive designs and colours, fabrics and wall coverings from Clarke & Clarke and Ian Mankin, i-Live fabrics, wallcoverings and soft furnishings, paints from Farrow & Ball or Mylands of London, It really is worth a visit and a chat with Amanda. There are bespoke shades and blinds, even luxe sheers for bi-fold doors. ‘The interior design studio really came about to help clients put a final finish to a room or area where we had installed a new kitchen bathroom, bedroom, study or media room. Very often clients pay so much attention, quite rightly so, to the design and installation that they overlook the finishing touches until the tradesmen leave, meaning they have to start all over again’ commented Amanda the interior consultant, ‘Now when Lords finally leave the building everything is done and the room is ready to be lived in.’ The design service is not exclusive to clients having an installation carried out by Lords, but it is open to anyone who wants advice or simply would like to come in and look at the designs we have.

It really follows the ethos of director Mark Lord from when he started in 1988 of ‘from design to completion’, including all planning and building incorporating all trades with complete project management throughout. The new showroom has 15 stunning displays as well as a Siemens IQ Centre, where using the latest in design software the experienced team can plan and design your installation from a wide range of quality manufacturers. When a prospective new customer or an existing client comes to us with a well conceived idea of what they want, or even a blank piece of paper, we have the design, build management, interior style and affordability to guarantee you the best for your home. You are better off at lords for your… Kitchen – Bedroom – Bathroom – Wet Room - Study - Media Rooms

Warings Solicitors becomes Fylde Law

As many of us at some point in our lifetime are likely to need the services and support of a helpful, reliable and competent lawyer, Fylde Law take pride in making things as stress-free and easy to understand as they can, ensuring that our clients know what is going on at every stage of the legal process.”

Fylde Law is the new name for the recently merged firms of Warings Solicitors, Atkinson Cave & Stuart, Blackledge & Co and Ashley Fisher & Co, who cumulatively have provided over 150 years of legal advice on the Fylde. It also incorporates the old Fylde solicitors firms of Cameron and Ball and Baker, Hoyle and Lees.

Mary Lowe, Family and Probate Solicitor says “as solicitors we understand that legal matters can be highly complex and worrying and that many clients have personal and delicate issues that need handling with the utmost sensitivity and diligence. This is why each client is appointed a named solicitor with the relevant experience to manage their case from start to finish and provide a level of support that client needs. We believe this is the type of law firm people want to use.”


Although a new name, the same traditional values on which all four firms were founded – those of honesty and integrity, professionalism and doing the best for each and every client, still remain at the heart of everything they do. Gary McAnulty, a Director and Criminal Solicitor with the firm comments “the recent mergers and the decision to launch and operate under a new name marks an exciting and important time for the firm. We are committed to our roots and the history of service we have provided to the people of the Fylde over the last century and a half and look forward to delivering the same quality of service and advice as we have always done.

With offices in Blackpool and Lytham St. Annes, Fylde Law is dedicated to providing local people and businesses with access to expert legal knowledge experience and advice without the exasperating legal jargon and formality that often goes with it.

Mayor serves the soldiers who serve the nation Soldiers from Weeton Barracks received civic thanks for their efforts overseas when they held their annual Christmas dinner.

The soldiers serve the nation, so Fylde’s mayor and consort served them their turkey and sprouts in what has become a Fylde tradition in recent years. Councillor Linda Nulty, Fylde mayor, said: ‘It is a Christmas tradition that I was proud to continue as it shows the gratitude that Fylde people have for their


efforts. It is only a few weeks ago that the soldiers of the 2nd Battalion, The Duke of Lancaster’s Regiment (2 LANCS) paraded through St Annes upon their safe return from Afghanistan. Thousands of people turned out to show their admiration for their work and I represented those people at the Christmas dinner in the barracks. They endured hundreds of enemy contacts in Afghanistan and they deserve some fun and relaxation now they are back with their friends and families.’

Lytham St Annes News

The South head north, to Lytham

Ex members of The Beautiful South, Dave Hemingway and Alison Wheeler will be singing many of those hits including A Little Time, Don’t Marry Her, Rotterdam, Good as Gold, Perfect 10 and many more from the back catalogue.

This 9 piece band will also be performing several songs from their wonderfully received debut album as The South, Sweet Refrains (available on iTunes and Amazon). History - from The Housemartins to The Beautiful South to The South, formed in 1988, The Beautiful South had a string of hit singles such as ‘Old Red Eyes Is Back’, ‘Rotterdam’, ‘Don’t Marry Her’, ‘Perfect 10’ and number one single ‘A Little Time’. Their greatest hits album, ‘Carry On Up The Charts’, was one of the fastest-selling albums in UK history, entering at number one and staying there for weeks, becoming one of the country’s most popular albums ever. After 20 years, ten studio albums, five greatest hits compilations, thirty-four chart singles, 15 million record sales worldwide and performing in front of millions of fans, when time was called on The Beautiful South in 2008, not everyone was ready to leave the party. Dave Hemingway and Ali Wheeler, two of the three lead singers with the band, were having too much fun to get out the pipe and slippers, and so The South was formed. Joining the duo were fellow mainstays from the original touring band: keyboard wizard Damon Butcher and the potent horn section of Gaz Birtles and Tony Robinson that brought so much to the live shows. Armed with a sensational back catalogue of hits there is a long way to go on this particular road.


This band has history and pedigree. Dave Hemingway’s musical career stretches back into the Eighties. He became a founder member of The Beautiful South after the demise of The Housemartins, who had enjoyed a sustained purple patch and many hits before calling it a day in 1988. Whilst bassist Norman Cook went on to become superstar DJ Fat Boy Slim, Paul Heaton and Dave Hemingway proceeded to form the new band in December 1988. Right from the off, The Beautiful South seemed to defy the normal logic associated with pop bands, not least for the fact that they stayed together for 20 years. Still as Beautiful as they ever were, The South continue the legacy with their own vibrantly singable and acerbically witty pop. As their critically acclaimed debut album Sweet Refrains, currently available on Zoo Records, confirms. 2014 will see them touring this new collection of songs alongside established favourites from their previous incarnation. The South are rightly extremely proud of their history - and their future looks very bright..
