Motoring

IT’S THAT TIME OF YEAR AGAIN - So Make Sure Your Car Is Ready For Winter!

L

ow winter temperatures and adverse weather conditions can make even the most basic trips in your car extremely hazardous - especially if you haven’t prepared well in advance. In November we can begin to expect poorer road conditions but with just a little bit of effort many of the problems can be alleviated before they even appear. Here are a few top tips from motoring experts to ensure a Winter of trouble free motoring and while you may think they are obvious observations it’s amazing how many people regret having ignored them!

Batteries have an effective life of around five years and if you are having trouble starting the car on a cold morning that is the best place to start looking for the solution. Get it checked and replaced if necessary. 3. Top up engine coolant with antifreeze - Engine coolant in your radiator should be a 50/50 mix of water and antifreeze and over a long hot summer your antifreeze can often be diluted further than is safe. People make the mistake of topping up just with water during the year, so the antifreeze gets over-diluted and freezes during very cold weather, often leading to the engine over-heating and consequently large 1. Get your car serviced - This is probably repair bills. It’s therefore vital to top up with the most obvious advice you can be given antifreeze before winter. but it’s amazing how many people ignore 4. Check the condition of your tyres it. While cold weather can cause many - As a car’s tyres are key to both steering problems, up to half can be prevented by and braking, it is essential they are in regular servicing and maintenance checks. good condition, so have them checked for both pressure and tread depth. In snowy Many garages offer free or discounted or freezing conditions it is essential to winter car checks and its certainly worth have good road grip and both factors are taking advantage of them to ensure you don’t get stuck miles from home in freezing extremely important towards both your safety and that of other road users. conditions. 2. Check the battery - The battery should The motor organisations recommend a minimum depth of 3mm during the winter, be the first priority because during the compared to the legal minimum of 1.6mm. winter months it suffers from considerably You could also look at changing from more usage during cold temperatures. summer to winter tyres, as these also offer Increased use of lights, heater and blower all place it under additional strain, while on increased grip in snow, slush or ice. cold mornings it’s often the case that just 5. Check your lights - Check that all starting the engine will take far longer than lights, indicators and rear reflectors are normal. clean and working properly. PAGE 10 | Please mention ‘The Local Answer Ingleby Barwick’ when calling advertisers


See Page 30 for our Index of Advertisers Also make sure there are no cracked lenses or blown bulbs, and don’t forget to check full beam headlights, fog lights and indicators. Apart from the safety aspect, faulty lighting represents the perfect excuse for the police to pull you over. 6. Wash your windscreen and wipers - In snow, sleet or rainy conditions it’s vital that your visibility isn’t hampered by poor windscreen wipers or oily film on your windscreen. Give them all a good check and clean and make sure you keep your windscreen washer topped up with the appropriate antifreeze cleaning fluid. It’s also a good idea to run your fingers down your wiper blades to check for nicks and tears and to check for any small chips in the windscreen that may become hazardous during frosty conditions. You could also touch up any chips in the car bodywork as the abundant salt deposits on winter roads will attack them. 7. Prepare well for longer journeys - Before setting off on a longer journey, check the weather forecast, travel news and safest routes and allow extra journey time to avoid having to rush. Clear all windows of snow and ice using a scraper and de-icer, re-check your tyre pressures and ensure you have antifreeze in your car.

8. Carry a winter car breakdown kit - Despite all your efforts to prevent such problems there may be a time when you do actually break down and it is best to be prepared. A ‘breakdown kit’ should include a shovel, torch, blanket, hi-visibility vest, screenwash, food and drink supplies, scraper and de-icer, and snow grips for your shoes in case you need to walk to safety. And don’t forget a fully charged mobile phone. Drive according to the road and weather conditions because common sense needs to prevail to reduce the number of accidents. 9. Check your cover - Comprehensive breakdown cover is crucial at this time of year and will give you the peace of mind of knowing you won’t end up stranded in the cold. So check your policy and remember to take a contact phone number with you on all journeys. 10. Other important factors - Always keep at least a quarter of a tank of fuel in case of unexpected delay and keep checking the oil. If you are able, check your brake pads, brake discs and brake fluid to ensure the brakes are fast and responsive. If not, get someone else to do it. Ensure the fan belt and alternator drive belts are tight and not worn and that plugs and other leads are in good condition and secure. All that should be done on your service, of course, but it doesn’t harm to keep checking. It’s always better to be safe than sorry!

In The Garden

C

ut down herbaceous stems and clear the tatty remains of annuals, but do leave a little cover of the perennials that fade relatively elegantly (sedum, astilbes and grasses for example) They will provide winter interest as well as some much needed wildlife shelter - ladybirds especially appreciate winter quarters and will repay your hospitality by disposing of aphids in industrial quantities next year. Leaving sodden debris and fallen leaves around plants will only encourage pests and disease.

Clean out the greenhouse

Clear out the greenhouse, wash pots and trays, clean, mend and oil your tools and throw away anything that is beyond hope or reasonable repair! Cleaning your greenhouse thoroughly will prevent pests from hibernating and leaping into action next spring. Wash the windows inside and out to allow maximum light in over the winter and scrub benches, fixtures and glazing bars with disinfectant, making sure you hose

the whole place down really well, especially dark and dusty corners. For really effective pest elimination, fumigation is the ticket. Move all plants outside, shut the windows, light a sulphur candle in the middle of the floor, (retreat at speed!), shut the door and wait until the smoke and fumes have completely dispersed several hours later. Your greenhouse should now be delightfully pest free!

Drain and lag...

Save yourself untold irritation and expense by draining and lagging standpipes, outdoor taps, irrigation lines and water pumps in advance of sudden hard frosts.

Prepare your soil for next year

For beds that lie bare in winter, carry on with the winter digging until the soil is too hard - use compost, manure, leaf mould - in fact as much organic matter as you can lay your hands on to replace the goodness in it. It can be left in a pretty rough state over the winter when the elements will break the clods down, making spring planting infinitely easier! For text book soil improvement, you should

PAGE 14 | Please mention ‘The Local Answer Ingleby Barwick’ when calling advertisers


See Page 30 for our Index of Advertisers add a layer of organic matter and dig it in by turning over spadefuls so it is buried below the surface. If this seems too much like hard work, just mulch the bed and leave the rest to the worms! If your soil is thin or heavy clay, just fork it over now; too much digging on the former will bring up infertile matter from below whilst great chunks of wet clay will remain rock solid over the winter and become nigh on impossible to break up next year.

Planting

Plant bare-rooted trees, shrubs, hedging and roses as well as fruit trees and bushes. Soak the roots in a bucket of water for an hour first and protect against frost and wind if exposed.

Rake fallen leaves

Fallen leaves prevent light and air getting to plants and lawns and these dark, damp

conditions are also heaven on earth for slugs, snails and an unwholesome array of fungal diseases. However, don’t waste these tumbled treasures - given time they will decompose into fabulously rich leaf mould - aka ‘nature’s soil conditioner of choice’! Rake them up and throw into a simple frame made of chicken wire or wood. Failing that, black bin liners spiked with air holes will do if you can bear the sight, but remember to dampen the leaves first should they be dry (some hope!). Leaf mould takes about a year to mature (two in the case of oak leaves), makes a great top dressing for woodland plants such as rhododendrons and is an excellent and free home-grown substitute for peat.

Don’t be tempted to use rose leaves, which can easily carry infection, or evergreens, which take too long to rot down.

A pro painter, whether they are painting internally or externally, will concentrate on the edges, under windows, around door frames, corners and nooks and crannies first before applying the main bulk of the paint. If you try this, and then start on your main bit of the wall, you will find the whole job will go far quicker and will produce much better results. Always start from the top of any wall, and work downwards and only ever dip the brush about a quarter of the way into the pot, or excess paint will flow down the brush onto your fingers, plus you stand the chance of drips too. If you watch a pro painting contractor at work, take a closer look at his hands because the first thing you won’t see is paint all over them, it will be on the wall, where it is supposed to be! If you remember to put down dust sheets or old blankets, this also helps with a better job, after all, what is the point of spending two days painting and then another two days cleaning off all the paint spills and drips? Use masking tape and old newspaper and cover all window sills too.

Tip five: If you want to paint like a pro, dress like a pro, act like a pro, think like a pro and you will be a pro.

Some final thoughts…. A lot of the time it is down your mindset and how seriously you take each painting project. Learn from the trade, there is plenty more advice around the internet than the five points we are giving you here today. Make sure you wear overalls, or at best, old clothes that you don’t mind getting dirty. Always protect areas not to be painted from spills and drips. Keep all your tools in one place and clean them after use. Make sure if you are painting a room, do what the professional does and move all furniture out and of course take the pictures down and the lampshade if you are painting the ceiling. If you are painting or decorating externally, make sure you are confident with using ladders or scaffolding, clear away all plants and other obstructions against the wall. Make sure you do the correct preparation and take the task of painting seriously, for a quality expert paint finish that you can do! If the thought of painting your house fills you with dread, then contact one of the specialist painting and decorating companies in the Local Answer and they will do it for you at a competitive rate.

FIVE REASONS WHY PRINTED ADS ARE IMPORTANT FOR YOUR BUSINESS

P

rint advertising is powerful. Yes, the internet is a marvellous tool, however, it isn’t the only tool. Digital media without doubt has its advantages, but print still has the upper hand in some ways and should be incorporated into your marketing strategy.

Read on to learn 5 advantages of using printed ads...

audience and deliver the ad right into their hands (literally!). Beyond this, you also have the option to tailor your campaign to fit your budget (how much page space you need), and rather than relying on an algorithm to decide where your ad should sit, you get to speak with a real person when buying your ad space.

3. Print ad readers have longer attention spans and more intent

1. It’s real!

There’s a lot to be said for a tangible, inyour-hand ad. It’s easier and more convenient to retain and refer to a compact, A5 booklet than it is to scroll through your mobile to find the same ad that you saw a few days ago. Plus, many people hold onto magazines and brochures for years, meaning that even just a one-time printed ad could be incredibly cost-effective for your business.

2. You can reach your target customers

Think about it - how many digital ads do you see every day? We’re bombarded! The beauty of print is that it’s much less invasive and you’re able to target a very specific

Mobile devices can shrink peoples’ attention spans and we almost become immune to the selling efforts we’re exposed to on a daily basis. People who look at more traditional formats (magazines, newspapers, other publications) often spend more time looking and could be more likely to focus and really take note of the ad. When we’re online, we might have 7 different tabs open and probably have messages and emails pinging through. Referring directly to a printed ad minimises the chance of the consumer becoming distracted.

4. Authenticity

Pretty much anybody can make a digital

See Page 30 for our Index of Advertisers ad. Print, however, requires a marketing budget and feels somewhat more official and trustworthy. This is especially true when it’s targeted at local level. Quality print publications, such as the Local Answer, can easily leverage your credibility and generate you more leads and sales.

5. Stand out!

In a time where everyone is going digital, going ‘old school’ with a printed ad could give you the edge that you’re looking for. It’s a medium that some businesses forget, so make sure you play the trump card and have this aspect of marketing covered!

Conclusion

So, as you can see, local print advertising is extremely effective and should be added to your marketing mix. Combining these benefits with a solid digital strategy can produce substantial results. When reading printed content, consumers Call: 01642 296513

Healthy Eating

ALL ABOUT AVOCADOS vocados are a source of healthy fats that help keep our hearts healthy, help lower cholesterol and contain protein and fibre. If you fancy a snack, guacamole is a Mexican dip you can make to have with grilled pita bread pieces (break pita break into pieces, brush with olive oil and put under the grill) or tortilla chips

RECIPE:

2 ripe avocados, 1 lime, 1/4 cup red onion, diced, 1/4 cup tomatoes, diced, 1/4 cup fresh coriander, chopped (if you have it), 1-2 cloves garlic, minced, 1/2 jalapeño pepper minced (optional), 1/2 teaspoon sea salt. Mash avocados & mix in everything else. Serve with tortilla chips & hot sauce.

The fat in avocados helps to reduce inflammation, reduce redness and fight wrinkles in your skin. Here are two face mask recipes: Avocado Anti-Aging Mask - 1 ripe avocado (should be soft to the touch) and 1 tsp coconut oil. Take make-up off with the coconut oil. Mash the avocado and apply, leave on for 30 minutes. Anti-Acne Youthful Avocado Mask Lemon juice helps to lower inflammation, avocado help prevent dryness, oats & lemon are good for bacteria. 1 ripe avocado, juice from one lemon, 1-2 tablespoons rolled oats. Mix it all together & apply for 30 minutes then wash off. ‘Healthy Eating’ courtesy of Sue Lorrimer.

Football - The 'Boro

SUPPORT LOCAL BUSINESSES

THERE'S A DEGREE OF CONTRADICTION ABOUT BOTH THE CHAMPIONSHIP AND BORO'S RECENT PERFORMANCES

H

aving played 13 games this season ‘Boro’s 2-0 win over Barnsley (last night, as I write) is the first time they’ve won two in a row and while we are all well aware that such a statistic in no way constitutes a promotion challenge it has suddenly elevated us to within three points of a play-off place. After the despondency that followed the defeat at Hull that’s surely evidence of the absolute contradiction of both Middlesbrough FC and the Championship. It’s also why it remains one of the most exciting leagues in the world because literally anything can happen throughout the season and you simply can’t write off any team at any stage. On the way home from that defeat at Hull I could only contemplate what a difference a couple of good finishes would have made to the match and might eventually make to the season overall. We must have had at least four gilt edged chances to put Hull to the sword and yet all went begging. A piece of good fortune for Hull’s first goal and a second goal while we were wide open chasing the equaliser

totally contradicted what had gone on in the previous eighty minutes. Conversely, we go to the pretty poor game against Peterborough in which neither team showed a great deal until Peterborough were desperately unlucky not to have been given a penalty. ‘Boro did pick up a bit in the second half but good substitutions made all the difference in the last five minutes and we fortuitously ended up with three points we probably didn’t deserve. Last night against Barnsley was again a bit of an enigma, with an amazing miss by Duncan Watmore the pick of at least five good spurned opportunities. Andraz Sporar took his goal well and we scraped another late on, but while Barnsley could also have had a couple in the early stages they were totally outplayed for the rest of the night and our goal difference should have been considerably improved had both our accuracy and choice of pass been more decisive. Perhaps it was fortunate that in the middle of a dreadful injury crisis we came up against two struggling sides but in the past that has often meant more contradictory results when we have lost games we were expected to have won. Could it be, then,

It’s definitely a possibility because it’s worth noting that in recent games the likes of Andraz Sporar and Martin Payero have begun to look as if they could make a real impact as they come to terms with the pace of the championship. We know how good Sol Bamba has been before his illness but his inclusion in the face of the current injury situation has been an absolute

There is, of course, a long way still to go and with almost a whole defence out injured things, as they say, can only get better, even though the irony of having two clean sheets with a makeshift defence should be clear to everyone. But let’s just wait and see what the next few games bring. Who knows, by this time in November we might once again be talking up the promotion possibilities. How good would that be?

revelation and just one big reason for the two wins. On the way to the Barnsley match, incidentally, I thoroughly enjoyed the replay on Tees Radio of the wonderful interview with Sol conducted by Mark Drury. Originally aired on October 6th it was a great insight into a really lovely man. If you haven’t heard it then seek it out on the Tees Radio site. It’s well worth a listen!

Sudoku

that these two wins have meant we’ve turned the corner and can look for a bit more consistency? We’ll certainly find that out when we come up against a third struggling side in Cardiff. That returning managers often do well against a club they hold dear might well mean that Neil Warnock can at last pull off three wins in a row and what a difference that would make not only to the confidence of both players and fans but also to the look of the league table. Let’s hope it happens.
