GOLD & SILVER ROADSHOW GOLD & SILVER ROADSHOW JEWELLERY AND COIN ROADSHOW

A very lucky couple called at one of our recent roadshow events with a couple of old gold chains and a silver charm bracelet and a bag of old silver British coins. We paid them over £1600.00 just for the coins alone. They turned out to be pre 1947 silver coins that were normal currency a few years ago and are now highly collected. We asked them for their permission to pass on this story to help other people realise what they may be sitting on and they were only too pleased to allow us to let everyone know that they might be sitting on a goldmine and not even know it! Like most people, who can only dream of winning the pools or the lottery, a lot of normal households have a hidden treasure of old gold jewellery, silver jewellery, teapots, trophies, trays and old objects d’art. Why not get a free valuation from our expert at our roadshow at: CROFTERS HOTEL, A6 CABUS, GARSTANG, PR3 1PH. There is no queuing and our expert will give you a one on one appraisal of the value of your treasured possessions in a private area, where there are no prying eyes, watching the process evolve. If you like the valuation our expert will make you the same offer in cash which you can accept or decline at no cost to yourself. The whole process of valuation is free of charge and very private, so you have nothing to lose and a lot to gain.

WHAT DO YOU HAVE WAITING TO BE DISCOVERED

Many people are totally unaware of the value of unusual and old items that they own and are just hidden away in drawers around the house. Dealers are now paying record high prices for old jewellery and gold and silver objects and collectables. Most unusual gold and silver items are no longer fashionable but there are still collectors who we deal with that will pay record high prices for your old gold and silver jewellery, and items. Wristwatches and old fashioned pocket watches can surprise you with their values and you will be amazed by the amount that is currently being offered for such items. Get looking NOW in your old drawers, cupboards, and jewellery boxes.

14 | LOCAL CHOICE OCTOBER 2018

Look in the attic and the cellar, even old broken or squashed item of jewellery and silver are valuable and worth having appraised at these free roadshows. Bullion Investments & Acquisitions are having such a roadshow at CROFTERS HOTEL, A6 CABUS, GARSTANG, PR3 1PH. They will be offering a free valuation service and they will make you an instant CASH offer to buy your old jewellery, gold and silver or any old silver or coins that you may have. Things that you should look for and bring to our roadshows are absolutely anything that looks like jewellery, whether it is yellow gold, silver or platinum. Any old British or foreign coins. Any old wrist watches or pocket watches. All chains, bracelets, rings and bangles broken or not and in any condition. If you think it is a diamond ring, bring it along and we will confirm it to be genuine. If you have an old trophy or tankard or any silver coloured items, let us value them for you.

COINS & MEDALS URGENTLY WANTED Old war medals and old Masonic medals can be very valuable. You will be surprised to hear that we have paid THOUSANDS of pounds for certain war medals and even the General Service Medal group is worth bringing especially if you have the original box and letters to accompany them. Also of great interest are old military uniforms, tunics, hats and any army, navy or RAF field gear. WANTED NOW Krugerrand, Maples and Sovereigns are urgently wanted for top prices. OF PARTICULAR INTEREST Gold and silver cigarette cases, Vesta Cases, thimbles, Candle sticks, trays and all things silver are needed.

OCTOBER IS TYRE SAFETY MONTH

GET INTO THE GROOVE

T

hink about the tyres on your vehicle; black... round... expensive... are probably the first things that spring to mind.

So how do you look after your tyres? Simply by regularly checking your tyres- we recommend once a month and before long distance journeys.

But what should be your first thought is that your tyres are your vehicle's ONLY point of contact with the road.

We offer free tyre checks all year round which involves our knowledgeble and qualified fitters checking your tyres tread, pressure and overall condition. We also have the latest technology the 'Groove Glove' which offers a thorough tyre check with a print out of the information for you to take away.

Which is extremely important when you're travelling anywhere, whether that's a long distance journey, to work, on the school run or just to the supermarket. Even more so when you have precious cargo like your kids, grandkids or pets on board. Tyre safety is about being aware of the importance of your tyres and about looking after them so that they keep you and your passengers safe whilst your out on the road. Tyre Safety Month aims to highlight that and spread the message far and wide!

Make Make sure sure your your tyres have the the tyres have CORRECT CORRECT PRESSURES PRESSURES

Over 150 people per year are seriously injured or killed in incidents due to their tyres yet a tyre check takes just 10 minutes. Are you prepared to put that kind of price on yours and your passengers safety? Instead of saying you don't have time, make it a priority. 10 minutes. Once a month. Safe Tyres Save Lives.

NEED TO GET HEALTHY AND HAVE THE BODY SHAPE YOU WANT?

• Imagine waking up every morning feeling better because you could move more easily! • Can you imagine how amazing you’d feel not having to rely on medication? • How good would you feel if you could do all your daily tasks without being restricted by your condition or on-going painful problem? • How good would it be if you didn’t ever develop a condition or an on-going painful problem? • How would it make you feel if you could walk further or stand for longer? • How amazing would you feel if you were pain free? • Does this describe you?

• Want to make the right food choices so you look and feel better? • How good would it feel if you could replace your desire to grab a chocolate biscuit with a healthier choice…and still love it? • Want to focus on you, make smarter food choices to shape up and beat the tired feeling? • You will learn what food choices will work for you… so you can make the changes you need to have a better shape. • You will learn why we overindulge, what your ‘weak spots’ are and how to find strategies to overcome this. Treats in moderation! • I’ll advise you on the best gentle exercises to suit you and your diet and how to work these into a busy daily life.

t was 35 years ago when I found myself on the catering course at Lancaster & Morecambe College, which was renowned as one the best in the North West. On this occasion I was no longer a student, but one of the diners at Coulson’s Restaurant, which is the award-winning restaurant at Lancaster & Morecambe College. Coulson’s is open every Wednesday (October-May, excluding college holidays) from 12 midday for either a 2 course lunch for only £8.50 or 3 course lunch for only £11.50 and for dinner from 6.30pm for 4 courses with a glass of house wine for only £15.50. Throughout the year, Coulson’s have a number of speciality evenings and tonight it was an Indian themed night. The restaurant is primarily ‘a real work experience’ training facility for the students, so I have to be honest and say I didn’t really know what to expect! To my surprise it had a lovely contemporary feel about it. The whole venue and all the tables were beautifully decorated with an Indian style, every table was occupied and the restaurant had a really good atmosphere. The catering students were all immaculately presented, friendly, very welcoming and attentive. It

really was very very good indeed and when you consider that the service was simultaneous, the wait time was considerably less and the service far more professional than many of the established high street restaurants that I have been to. I was offered a welcome Bucks Fizz on arrival and then I chose to have a bottle of Peroni with my meal, although I really should have had authentic Indian Cobra beer or Pink Gin cocktail from the speciality night drinks menu. To start with I had an eye-popping Indian platter which was a selection of Indian dishes, including an Onion Bhaji, Spicy Samosas, Chicken Pakora and Tandoori Chicken Satay…the whole starter would certainly tame any appetite - although I managed somehow!! For main course, I really was spoilt for choice, with so many succulent & tempting dishes on offer! After a lot of deliberation I decided to have the Rajasthani-Style Laal Mas with Kashmiri Chilli (a hot diced lamb curry from the Rajasthani region). All the selections were served with Pilau Rice, Peshwari Naan, Poppadoms, Okra Fries and a selection of dips. The presentation again was superb and all the ingredients were very fresh, good quality, locally sourced and full of flavour. You would be hard pushed to get an Indian meal as good.

Become a fan of Local Choice on

I had a chat with one of the tutors during the meal, who told me that small groups of students in the kitchen were involved in prepping certain elements of the dish, with each team member taking real pride in who had produced the most popular one. Tonight I told them that the courgettes in a very light batter was the winner, as they were very tasty and cooked to perfection. The saffron rice was also delicious, fluffy and just as it should be and the lamb was incredibly tender and bursting with flavour. Finally, for dessert I couldn’t resist the Rhubarb and Pomegranate Bhapa Doi with Pistachio Burfi. After a big meal this was light and refreshing and the combination of flavours was quite unique, with a lovely hint of floral tones. The perfect finale to the perfect meal. I had all this for only £15.50, so not only was the food at Coulson’s superb, but it was tremendous value for money too. All I can tell you is how surprised I was by the whole experience, and I am already looking forward to my next visit.

Ok let’s get this straight at the very start. I am not a vegan nor a vegetarian. In fact I have eaten at the Sunbury on several occasions and for the most part the meal I have previously had was the gentlemen’s breakfast. I am not claiming either that I am a gentleman but I am claiming that the breakfast was consistently great using good quality ingredients in generous portions. The Sunbury is marketed as a traditional English teashop with a modern outlook and when you enter you can see what that means. It is easy to imagine afternoon teas in the bright homely atmosphere and indeed that is my own prior experiences. This visit though the modern outlook comes through with the focus on its vegan menu presented in a manner more often seen in Michelin starred restaurants. This was my first outing for a vegan meal at any restaurant but, to cut to the chase, it will not be my last. 124 | LOCAL CHOICE OCTOBER 2018

At the end of the day 80% of the food we eat is vegan anyway but we just happen to add meat or dairy products. At the Sunbury, though, Nathan the owner and chef has not created the menu by extracting the meat or dairy content. He has taken the ingredients and created the best meals in their own right, and having had the pleasure of testing this theory I can definitely state that he has done it successfully The format of the food at the Sunbury is that of a tapas style, albeit with larger portions. We chose the mixed vegetable dumplings with pickled chilli jam, mixed mushroom and white wine casserole, sweet potato and mixed bean tagine and the basket of homemade breads. Each and every offering was a delight but the dumplings with the chilli jam just edged it for me and I could have had an extra portion of that to myself!

Apart from the surprise just how good the vegan options were, the additional surprise for both Sally and I was the quality of the homemade bread. Nathan told us how he originally bought in artisan bread but had changed to making his own and I for one applaud that change as it is simply a triumph. The variety, the textures and the flavours were fantastic and that alone would justify a further visit. On the day we visited it was towards the end of the evening and there were only a few tables still in so we were able to spend time talking to Nathan. He told us about his aims with the food he creates and how he wants vegan meals to be seen on a par with normal restaurant meals. His passion for quality and variety and for wanting to raise the awareness certainly shine through and we hope that he succeeds in getting this message out there, as long as he still has space for us to book in future!

The Crossing Micro Pub is an eclectic place, with a unique bar counter, cosy snugs and a real fire. But more so, it has the best ambience around. This place is absolutely buzzing and, as soon as you walk through the door, you get a really warm welcome, a bit like the famous ‘Cheers Bar’, this is a place where everyone knows your name and there is always someone you know, to talk to. ‘The Crossing’ is the idea of John and Sue, along with Gareth (all formerly of the Hest Bank Inn) and you can see all their years of experience combined in this new fab venture. It is perfectly located next to the railway crossing at Hest Bank, with lots of on street parking, or for a lovely walk to, or maybe as a stop off, if you are on a stroll along the canal? On my very first visit, I had wandered over the road to see what all the fuss was about? It was really busy and full of happy revellers, I was instantly hooked (and I can tell you I have been back lots of times since). So, what would I have to drink? With a choice of 6 rotating cask ales and a selection of fine wines and spirits, you will be spoilt for choice! However, whilst Gaz (Gareth) went through the offer, one of the happy revellers shouted across ‘Ave the Gin lad’ (Northern spelling). The Crossing stocks a locally distilled gin from Brindle near Chorley, called Cuckoo and let me tell you it is exceptional, with the spiced variety as my favourite (and i’ve tried a few). The Crossing doesn’t serve food, but it does have a small selection of snacks and crisps etc, however, it is so intimate and friendly, that you will often see Gaz, or one of his team walking around with free samples of cheeses and meats to enjoy with your beverages.
