T���K L CAL ��Y L CAL We’re really lucky... our local area is full of wonderful small businesses

There are heaps of reasons to buy from local companies Here are 5 big reasons for using your local businesses: 1. They know their customers Local businesses understand people in the area. They’re quick to react to what their customers want and are able to meet the changing needs of the local population. This means they can offer you relevant and interesting products and services rather than the larger, more commercial companies that generally provide the same things no matter where you live.

2. They create jobs Shops in our towns create jobs within the local community. By purchasing from these smaller businesses, you’re helping to grow employment opportunities which in turn, makes the area a better place to live and work.

3. The experience There’s nothing quite like the personal touch that comes with the customer service in a local shop. They get to know you and can offer products and services that best meet your needs. Plus, they have an authenticity that the bigger brands can’t usually match. What’s not to like?!

4. They’re better for the environment Local businesses often source their products locally, which helps to reduce their carbon footprint.

5. Great deals - you’ll be surprised! Don’t assume that chain stores have the best deals - local businesses can have competitive pricing that you might not expect. Before you hit Google, take the time to have a look around your area and see what’s on offer. Which local businesses do you love?

The Benefits of Finding a Reputable Plumber id you know that water waste in the UK amounts to 460 million litres each year? The reason is that even the smallest of leaks can waste many litres of water. Leaks can not only cause damage to your and your neighbours’ homes but can also break the bank and have a negative impact on the environment. Hiring a ‘cowboy’ to do the job of a professional will only contribute to these adverse effects.

How to Find a Local Plumber You Can Trust

Page 22

October 2021 | local-answer.co.uk | Tel: 01642 296513

1. Ask another tradesperson Have you had tasks done by a handyman or an electrician, whose work you were happy with? Ask them to recommend a plumbing specialist. People in the trades business often know each other and sometimes work together on complex projects. 2. Look for a trusted company Choosing a reputable plumbing service company over a relatively new and unknown one is the better option in most Here are a few reasons why hiring a cases. The company’s reputation often reputable plumber in your area is worth speaks for itself, and you can’t just ignore every penny: other people’s opinions. • Good understanding of the local 3. Plumbing Trade Associations plumbing need – local plumbers are familiar Most knowledgeable plumbers are with the area, the parking situation, the members of a trade association. A trade hardware stores, and the local directives. association membership is a sign of • Short-notice appointments and a onequality and dedication to the craft, as stop-shop service – hiring a local plumber they encourage focus on technical ability, often means he can come out quickly and customer service, and delivering top results. offer you a full-package service – from Being a good plumber is more than being diagnosing the issue to sourcing materials technically adept and doing the job. It’s and completing the job. about communication, reliability, and trust. • Valuable advice – an expert can provide There is no use for a plumber who doesn’t respect your home. Good tradesmen deliver helpful tips on how to prevent the issue all-round professional services. Members of from recurring. They can help you with trade associations are unlikely to jeopardise trusted recommendations, such as how their good reputation by doing shoddy to upkeep your bathrooms and plumbing work. installations. You get more value for your money. 4. Ask friends and family • You support the local economy – buying Another great source of plumber local is a building block of any good recommendations can be your friends and economy. This way, you help hard-working family. Chances are they have experienced professionals find work and you keep your similar issues and can recommend a money circulating locally. tradesman you can count on.


See Page 30 for our INDEX OF ADVERTISERS

5. Search through rating directories Searching rating directories improves your chances of finding a plumber you can trust. It is less likely to find a ‘cowboy’ or wannabe plumber listed in there. Don’t rush the decision unless you are in an emergency. 6. Read reviews and testimonials Most advertisements claim that you get the best service for the best price. This does not necessarily give you the security and peace of mind that your home and family are in good hands. Take the time to carefully evaluate reviews and testimonials on review sites or the company website. 7. Compare rates and collect quotes over the phone Like with any other service, it is best that you receive 3 or more quotes to compare the costs and the service perks. The more complex the job is the more quotes you need to get, and the more questions you should ask. Depending on the requirements of a specific situation, they might give you a quote over the phone or after a survey. Beware of suspiciously low rates. Most good plumbers know what their work is worth. It’s unlikely that they will charge either too little or too much. A low price might mean a lack of licenses or specialised knowledge. Another trick to watch out for is quoting only for part of the job and then charging extra for ‘the additional work’. To avoid these situations, you need to have the following information:

Does the plumber have Public Liability Insurance? Is the tradesman a licensed professional? What is the guarantee? How is the service charged – by the hour or is it a fixed price? Do you get a quote in writing with a description of everything included as part of the service? Does the professional bring his own tools for the job? What are the hidden costs? Do you get a hard copy invoice? Unfortunately, there are some rogue plumbers or even just plain scammers out there. To avoid falling victim to a plumbing scam, we recommend that you consider the following guidelines: Ask for identification, proof of license and insurance. Ask for company address, telephone number, e-mail, and opening hours. Do not give money ‘under the table’ – ask for a receipt for every payment you make. Do not trust door-to-door plumbers. Ask for a written quote with details about the work. Never sign a blank document or a vague contract. The good plumber is someone professional, trustworthy, and dedicated to his craft. Quality is of the utmost importance for you and your family’s comfort and safety. Take the time to thoroughly research the plumbing companies and be mindful of your choice. Research the plumbers and heating engineers featured in the Local Answer and make a decision on who would be the best fit for the job you need doing.

Healthy Eating

I

TART TATIN (French Apple Tart) t’s Autumn and apple season. Apples are high in fibre and good for your digestion, while being low in fat and calories. If you know anyone with an apple tree, they are usually more than happy to give some away. Use any eating apples, but golden delicious and granny smiths don’t work as well in this recipe. Instead of the usual apple pie, this tart only has pastry on the bottom which makes it healthier! It’s easy to make but you do need a pie dish about 26cm round with sloping sides if you can find one.

Ingredients

Shortcrust pastry to fit the pie dish (homemade or bought), 150g sugar, 8 dessert apples, 100g butter or margarine. Pre-heat the oven to gas 4. Grease a round dish of 26cm (sloping sided) with oil and

shake in 125g sugar so that the bottom and sides of the tin are coated with sugar and in forms an even layer. Peel, core and cut apples into 6 segments. Place apples tightly on top of the sugar in a spiral shape (see pic). Fill in gaps with smaller pieces. Heat the pie dish on the top of the cooker, reduce the heat when the sugar under the apples is lightly caramalised (when it goes light brown – check by lifting a corner of apple with a knife). Take off the heat, sprinkle the rest of the sugar and flake butter or marg on top of the apples. Roll out the pastry and cover the apples, tucking in at the edges. Pierce the pastry with a fork all over. Cook for 20 minutes. When it’s cooled a bit, turn it upside down onto a plate. Serve with custard, vegan cream, single cream or icecream. ‘Healthy Eating’ courtesy of Sue Lorrimer.

THE SHOW MUST GO ON: How Printed Ads Can Help Local Businesses

Y

ou already know about the devastating impact of the coronavirus outbreak and the disruption that it has caused. It has never been more important to support local businesses than throughout these unprecedented times. It hasn’t been the big fat corporate organisations that we’ve been turning to. Local, family-run businesses are the backbone of our economy and here at the Local Answer, we couldn’t be prouder to be publishing ads for many of these companies. As people begin to rebuild their livelihoods, printed ads are a smart way to get company names out there and let customers know that they’re up, running and ready for business. Below are some ways that this type of marketing is helping businesses adjust to life as the economy begins to recover.

More bang for your buck

In a time where every penny counts, this type of advertising can be very Page 26

cost-effective. Physically printed media has a long-term retention value, whereby consumers tend to keep these publications for months or even years. For business owners, this means that even just a one-off add could see them reaping the rewards for quite some time after being published.

Supporting local

The #SupportLocal campaign has been influential across social media and with the spotlight on the benefits of buying local products and services, more people are looking at businesses closer to home that they can trust. If you’re a business owner and want to make the most of this movement, a printed ad in a local publication could be a really wise strategy.

Pack a punch (when it counts)

With finances unfortunately still unstable for a lot of people, it’s maybe not great form to continually show them ads whenever they use the internet, which in reality, is probably all the time. Printed ads are much less in-your-face as people will only look October 2021 | local-answer.co.uk | Tel: 01642 296513


at them if they have intent in the first place. It’s a way to index a business in an easy-to-use format for consumers to refer to as and when they need a particular product or service.

Getting back to business

We hope to see our local businesses back on their feet and thriving soon. Here at the Local Answer we’ll be cheering them on and on hand to help with their advertising needs. If you’d like to read more about how we could help you, go to our website at local-answer.co.uk for details on the benefits of using our services. Would you like to see how a printed ad could help your business? Call Yvette on 01642 296523, Monday to Thursday, 9am to 4pm, for more information about the Local Answer publications in your area.

Football - The 'Boro THE IMPORTANT THING NOW IS TO CUT OUT THE ‘IF ONLYS!’

A

t the time of writing ‘Boro sit – not very proudly – in 16th position with two wins, three draws and three defeats from our first eight games. The two fixtures following the international break could not have offered a more contrasting outlook with the apparent new dawn of the somewhat rare victory at Nottingham Forest being rudely squashed by the home defeat against Blackpool. In hindsight the result in Nottingham was probably more an indication of the complete lack of quality in the ‘Forest side than it was the strength in ours even though the new recruits all played an important part and showed they could have a great deal to offer. In contrast, though, there was a number of worrying ‘if onlys’ in the Blackpool reverse. For instance, had the two superb efforts from Sporer and Payero that both hit the woodwork sneaked in, the Page 28

result could have been much more positive. Instead, after a first half that should have seen us well ahead at the interval it was the injury to Anfernee Djiksteel that changed the course of the game and was proof if needed of the continuing lack of depth in the fullback department. Blackpool took full advantage, of course - helped when a number of dubious refereeing decisions went against us - but even then their winner came from a Grant Hall own goal that could – and should – have been headed to safety. Another ‘if only.’ Optimism should still be there, though, as we have Marc Bola and Paddy McNair to return from injury and further strengthening a possibility with out of contract players being examined. The likelihood of finding one that could have the impact of Duncan Watmore last season, however, is probably remote. But with the new signings looking as if they will definitely strengthen things once they get fully up to speed, our

position could certainly change. Andraz Sporar has already shown he has the ability to get quite a few goals this term, while both Onel Hernandez and James Lee Siliki look like real players. Hopefully, the same might possibly be said for the likes of Martin Payero and Toyosi Olusanya once they get their chances! So there’s still a long way to go and despite our 16th position the important statistic is that we’re still only four points outside the play-off positions. One or two consecutive wins could change the picture dramatically. That said it was quite interesting to hear our new Head of Football Kieran Scott’s first interview in which he began by saying that everything he could possibly need is already in place at the club to help him make a success of his new role. ‘It’s all there,’ he said, ‘it maybe just

See Page 30 for our INDEX OF ADVERTISERS

needs a bit of life putting back into it.’

He would obviously be present both for the Forest and the Blackpool games and I really can’t see how he could imagine putting any more life into the performance of the fans because in both games they were once again magnificent. Add to that the fact our academy is still considered one of the best in the country and it looks as if he has got himself a fairly enviable position. Time will tell with perhaps his main influence centred round future recruitment and I for one look forward to seeing how things change in that department.

There’s not a lot he can do immediately, but we’ll see what happens in January and whether the hard work he has promised us is going to pay off. We wait with baited breath!
