info@link-mag.co.uk www.link-mag.co.uk March Magazine Deadline 12th Feb 2014

Our plans for last year were met with record months, and new areas working well. The Jan/Feb edition is 40% up on the same time last year, which confirms our position as the leading free monthly magazine in the North West. We have had a well deserved break, and taken the opportunity to seize the free time to put new ideas into action. Over the coming months we have plans to improve and expand the magazines, and we are very excited about that - so watch this space! We are always interested in your feedback, so if you have any suggestions we can also take into consideration, then please get in touch. Don’t forget our next edition deadline is 12th February for the March issue, out from 20th February. Well done to last month’s competition winner: Mary Curwen. £50 is on its way, and also Mrs Band of Thornton Cleveleys, too - who is the winner of a free MOT at James Jackson’s Central Garage. Now is the best time to get involved, and we hope you do!

Enjoy the read and see you next month!

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.

Good News!

The Norcross Social Club Returns

After some 70 years, when the majority of the Civil Service Site at Norcross finally closed its doors at the end of August, so too did the shutters come down on the Bar at the Norcross Social Club. Following the announcement from HASSRA that Norcross Social Club was to close, a small group of associate members set out to find a new home for the club independently. It seemed like a bit of a pipe dream at the time but after discussions with the owners of Tee Time Golf Centre we realised that opening our club at this venue could be mutually beneficial for both organisations. There was a great deal of scepticism surrounding our plans but as more people joined us and gave an unbelievable amount of support, providing countless hours of labour, materials and moral support we finally made it happen and I believe this club is a shining example of what community minded people can do when they pull together. The club opened on Saturday 23rd of November with a fantastic opening party welcoming over 200 new and old members through the doors. We already

have a member base approaching 500 people. On behalf of the Directors we would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who has helped make this possible and look forward to the continued support of all our existing members and new members yet to come. The original club, which opened in 1952, had been the focal point for not only the sporting clubs, and other clubs within the Sports and Social Association, but also a pleasant watering hole for members of staff and their friends. Over the years, the Club has gained a reputation for hosting first class cabaret acts at the Brierley Suite and also became a popular venue for staff to celebrate birthdays, retirements, christenings etc. The new club aims to carry on the traditions of the past social club and offer more besides The Phoenix has risen from the ashes and the spirit of the Norcross Social Club will continue

Diary of a local Councillor Paul Galley is a Councillor for Anchorsholme in Blackpool and each month he writes a weekly diary of what he has been up to. Sunday: My girlfriend and I had so much fun today posting Christmas cards. For those that don’t know each year we send a Christmas card to every house in Anchorsholme, all 3500 of them. The weather was lovely today so we had lots of fun posting. Monday: This afternoon I attended a meeting about a case of anti-social behaviour (ASB). ASB issues are horrible and are draining for the neighbours concerned and I left the meeting feeling extremely sorry for everyone that is effected. The next mission is to make sure it doesn’t continue and it’s something I take very seriously. If you are suffering with any issues where you feel threatened or intimidated please do contact me on 01253 826679, it’s important to know although it takes time that there are organisations out there that will help you, so you don’t suffer in silence. Tuesday: In the morning I had a meeting with a company who are creating plans for our new Play equipment in Eastpines Park. We are going to break the funding bid in to several parts from lots of different UK agencies but the total amount we are going for is £120,000, it’s going to be a hugely exciting project. Wednesday: This morning I attended a meeting with United Utilities and the members of the Anchorsholme Bowling Club to discuss the plans Unities Utilities have for Anchorsholme Park. Over the next five years United Utilities will be working on two huge projects in the Park costing around £60 million. The plans will see them build huge storage tanks under the Park which will store the excess rain water from Anchorsholme during heavy rains as well as a new 3 mile pipe as a further back up, the aim for United Utilities will be to reduce pollution going on to Anchorsholme Beach (the stored water from heavy rains will be sent to Fleetwood for treatment and the new 3 mile pipe will be used as an additional back up. United Utilities will also build an odour control unit as part of the plans. Whilst the end project will be great for Anchorsholme it does mean over the next five years in Anchorsholme Park together with the works traffic mean we face alot of disruption. United Utilities are committed to replacing everything they removed during the construction period (including all the buildings) so everyone is now fully involved in planning what we want and where we want it in the Park so that when it’s all done we will have a Park that is one of the best on the Fylde with state of the art buildings and facilities. One area that will not be effected we have been told is the new trim trail and the Zip Wire. It’s early days in the Project but United Utilities have started bore hole tests ready for the main project to start in March. I will be pushing hard now and throughout the project to make sure it’s as painless as possible and Anchorsholme gets the best possible deal. The meeting went well I have so much respect for the bowling club members they really are lovely people. Thursday: It’s a measure of how much is going on in Anchorsholme at the moment that the next day I had

48

a meeting about the other huge project we are about to see and that is the new promenade. For those that don’t know it will look more like the new promenade in Blackpool than the one in Cleveleys. It’s costing £20 million and construction will start this March. It’s a huge project for Anchorsholme and will see Anchorsholme having one of the nicest promenades in the country when it’s completed by the summer of 2015. The road from Kingsway to Anchorsholme Lane West will remain open during construction but Princes Way from Anchorsholme Lane West to Little Bispham will close during construction. I’ve put some pictures of what the new Promenade will look like in the notice boards in Eastpines Park and Anchorsholme Park. The irony of today’s meeting was that it came during a massive storm and despite causing some damage to the Promenade, it held out and protected us from any major damage (thank you old Promenade). Many thanks Paul Galley Cllr for Anchorsholme

First Monday of every month (except August) The Alan Riley 16 piece All Star Big Band, 8.30pm Wyre Archaeology Wyre Archaeology (WAG) offers a rare opportunity for anyone with an interest in the history of the Fylde Coast and North Preston areas to get hands on experience of practical archaeology. In recent seasons we have excavated a Roman Road in Stalmine, an 18th Century cottage in Pilling, a Roman site in Kirkham and a possible Iron Age settlement in Thornton. Our BIG DIG in June 2013did find evidence of Iron Age, Roman and Early Mediaeval presence in the Thornton area and we’ll be following up this tantalising evidence in future digs. Next year we also hope to investigate the elusive ‘Danes Pad’ but we’d also welcome suggestions of potential sites from readers. WAG is open to people of all ages and has previously provided practical experience for students going on to study for degrees in Archaeology. We’re keen to have new digging members but you’d be welcome whatever skill you might be able to bring at whatever level. We’re fully insured and we provide basic training and equipment. We’re affiliated to the Council for British Archaeology and have strong links with local professionals in the field. A meeting held at Farmer Parr’s in Thornton on the 3rd Wednesday of each month*, starting at 7.00pm, keeps everyone informed of activities and there are occasional guest speakers. Non-members may attend up to 3 meetings without charge. (*No meeting in January). Email the Secretary secwyrearch@aol.com or call 0752 850 3710. www.wyrearchaeology.org.uk Norcross Cricket Club As the Ashes have started in Sunny OZ, hopefully it gets you thinking of next summer and playing cricket.

The committee would particularly like to thank all ladies who have helped throughout the year with getting the room prepared and assisting with the smooth running of the club that was set up over 5 years ago to celebrate the successes and the roles of women in our local community. 2014 will be no different and we are again looking for any local lady with a story to tell or a skill to share. In January we are focussing on travel and the challenge is to find out who amongst us has travelled to places of interest or done unusual things outside this country. Ladies are asked to bring photos or objects that have a real meaning from other parts of the world and we will be assessing just how travelled the ladies of Thornton are. If you have never been before but have an interesting story to tell (in no more than 5 minutes!) then why not come along.
