The reason for this are not always clear, but there is still a slight nervousness in the housing market about the stability of house prices, which when combined with lingering economic uncertainty and concerns about job security mean that buyers sometimes get cold feet.

Exclusive park home arrives at Willowgrove Leisure Park & Fishery

After its unveiling at the Caravan and Motorhome Show earlier this year, the Lissett Oasis, a unique and prestigious new home, has been positioned on Barton Park Homes’ Willowgrove Leisure Park & Fishery, a beautiful leisure park in the village of Preesall, close to the Fylde coast. The luxurious 42ft x 20 lodge was built exclusively for Barton Park Homes by leading manufacturers Lissett. This one-of-a-kind home was named the Oasis as it has been destined for a sought-after lakeside plot on Willowgrove since its conception. Barton Park Homes has worked with Lissett Homes for many years, offering its range of quality-built and elegant homes on its eight parks across the country. The home was one of the star attractions of the Caravan and Motorhome Show in Manchester as visitors were welcomed to sample the space and luxury of the Oasis after its official unveiling by Barton Park Homes Managing Director Charlie Barton Jnr and Willowgrove Sales Consultant Glenda Miziura.

“This is a striking and luxurious home, built to exceptional standards by one of the UK’s most renowned park home builders. It attracted a lot of attention at the show and whoever decides to purchase it will be the envy of the entire park”, said Charlie Barton Jnr.

Inside the distinctive and specially treated solid wood exterior visitors found state of the art fittings, finishes and appliances that distinguish the Oasis as one of the most prestigious homes available at the moment.

As well as being close to the picturesque seaside village of Knott End-on-Sea, Willowgrove boasts a fullystocked CEFAS registered fishing lake, nature reserve, and soon to be completed bowling green and pavilion.

Community funding up for grabs in Wyre A pot of cash is now available to fund community projects that will make a difference to local people or their surroundings. Under Wyre Council’s Shaping Your Neighbourhood initiative, the borough has been split into six areas and each of these will be allocated £10,000 in 2014/15. Bids for a share of the funding are now being accepted from community groups who can show that their idea will have a lasting and positive effect on their neighbourhood. The council is specifically looking for projects to address a local need, as identified in each of its locality plans. Schemes that have benefited from previous Shaping Your Neighbourhood funding include a number of new children’s playgrounds, improvements to key footpaths in the rural area, refurbishment and improvements to community buildings and courses that bring families together. Councillor Peter Gibson, Leader of Wyre Council, said: ‘Very often it’s little changes that make a huge difference to community life, so we’ve set aside this money specifically for projects just

like this. The money is obviously a big bonus for the successful projects, but a key element of Shaping Your Neighbourhood is also to give our residents a real opportunity to get involved in local decision making. Last year when we offered this funding there was a great response, so we’re looking forward to seeing what innovative ideas our communities come up with this time around.’ Each area has a lead member responsible for deciding where the money is spent: Cleveleys: Councillor Andrea Kay Fleetwood: Councillor Paul Treece-Birch Poulton: Councillor Lesley McKay Rural East: Councillor Lady Dulcie Atkins Rural West: Councillor Julie Robinson Thornton: Councillor Don MacNaughton All are happy to talk to potential applicants about their projects. Details of how to apply are available at wyre.gov.uk/syn. Closing date is 31 May.

A different quality of care The team at Home Instead Senior Care in Blackpool, North Cleveleys and Fleetwood are passionate about providing care to its clients which not only improves the quality of their life but those of their families too. Owner Tara said, “We are passionate about providing the highest standard of person-centred care. Our ethos is simple – treat others as we would wish to be treated ourselves. In doing this we are improving our clients’ quality of life and helping them to remain living in their own homes.” Home Instead Senior Care specialises in providing care for older people in their own homes. The service is extremely flexible and ranges from help a few hours a day to 24 hour care. We believe that care can’t be delivered in a short, rushed visit so our care calls are of a minimum hour duration. Each and every one of our clients has a care plan tailored specifically to their own needs. Whether it’s a trip to the park for some fresh air, a visit to the hairdressers; some help around the house or assistance with shopping; right through to medication reminders and post-operative support or respite care we are here to help. We also provide a range of specialist services, which include

Alzheimer’s and dementia care, convalescence care and respite care. What’s more, we take time to carefully match our caregivers to clients so that they share common areas of interest and can form an immediate bond. We only employ the most caring, considerate and empathetic caregivers – people to whom making a difference to the lives of others is important. It is for this reason that we enjoy long-lasting relationships with our clients. Our caregivers are carefully selected, are CRB checked and have to provide six references Home Instead Senior Care are committed to making a difference, we regard it as a special privilege to look after people with love, care and compassion and we take our responsibilities very seriously indeed For more information on Home Instead Senior Care please call us on 01253 200770 or visit www. homeinstead.co.uk/ blackpoolandwyre

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 through our regular programme of excavations and other activities. Our 2013 BIG DIG found evidence of Iron Age, Roman and Early Mediaeval presence in the Thornton area and we’ll be following up these tantalising leads in future digs. In the 2014 season we also plan to investigate the elusive ‘Danes Pad’ and if you have an idea for a dig just get in touch. 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. We meet at Farmer Parr’s in Thornton on the 3rd Wednesday of each month, starting at 7.00pm, to keep everyone informed of activities and there are occasional guest speakers. Non-members may attend up to 3 meetings without charge. If you’d like to come just e-mail the Secretary on: secwyrearch@aol.com or call 0752 850 3710.

JESUS IS COMING! Just as in biblical times God regulates the sun, moon and stars. NASA informs us that Four Blood Moons will occur commencing April 15, 2014 and ending September 2015. It is no coincidence that centuries BC a Hebrew prophet recorded these words in Joel chapter 2, verses 30 to 32: I will show wonders in the heavens, blood, fire and pillars of smoke. The sun will become dark and the moon into blood, before that great and terrible day of the LORD. And it shall come to pass that anyone who calls on the name of the LORD shall be delivered. Are you prepared for the earth shaking events about to take place? You can by getting the book FOUR BLOOD MOONS by John Hague.
