Mediterranean Fish Bake Serves 4

Ready in 50 minutes This is a great one-pan dish full of fresh flavour. Monkfish is quite pricey but the meaty flesh is delicious and bakes really well, however you can replace it with cod loin, salmon steaks or thick pieces of haddock fillet if you prefer. Serve with a green salad and warmed ciabatta bread to mop up all the lovely herb and lemon flavoured pan juices.

Ingredients:

• 2 tbsp olive oil (choose a good quality fruity one) • 350g small new potatoes, halved • 1 red pepper, deseeded and cut into chunks • 1 yellow pepper, deseeded and cut into chunks • 1 green pepper, deseeded and cut into chunks • 225g small plum tomatoes, halved • 4 monkfish fillets (each weighing about 150g) • 50g butter, softened • Pared rind and juice from 1 small lemon, plus extra wedges to serve • 1 tbsp fresh chopped oregano • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Tip Replace the peppers with sliced courgettes, chunks of celery and baby button mushrooms, if liked.

Preheat the oven to 200C/400F/Gas Mark 6. Place the oil in a large non-stick roasting tin and heat in the oven for 5 minutes. Add the potatoes to the tin and toss to coat in the hot oil. Roast for 20 minutes, turning once. Add the peppers and tomatoes to the roasting tin and toss to coat in the hot oil. Make a space in the tin and add the monkfish fillets. Return the roasting tin to the oven for 10 minutes. Dot the butter over the fish fillets and sprinkle over the lemon rind, juice and oregano. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper and roast for a further 5-10 minutes until the fish is just cooked through and the potatoes and peppers are tender. Slice each monkfish fillet and arrange with the potatoes, peppers and tomatoes on four warmed serving plates. Spoon over the pan juices and serve immediately with lemon wedges.

5 Famous Trees

1. Boscobel, Shropshire - Boscobel House in Shropshire was once home to The Royal Oak, the tree in which Charles II hid whilst fleeing from the Roundheads after the Battle of Worcester in 1651. The original tree was destroyed in the 18th century, but one of its descendants, now 300 years old, stands in its place. 2. Fortingall, Perthshire - A yew tree in the Perthshire village of Fortingall is almost certainly the oldest tree in Europe, with estimates of its age reaching a staggering 5,000 years old â&#x20AC;&#x201C; it would already have been 1,000 years old when the Pyramids were built. 3. Hatfield, Hertfordshire - On 17 November 1558, Elizabeth Tudor was sat beneath an oak tree in the gardens of what is now Hatfield House when she received news that her sister Mary had died, and that she was now Queen of England. The tree, now known as the Queen Elizabeth Oak, is found on the Hatfield coat of arms. 4. Runnymede, Berkshire - King John signed the Magna Carta beneath the Ankerwyke Yew in Runnymede, Berkshire, in 1215. It is also thought that the tree served as a meeting place for Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn in the 1530s. 5. Southwell, Nottinghamshire - The first Bramley apple was grown in Southwell in Nottinghamshire from a seed planted by Mary-Ann Brailsford in 1809. The apple takes its name from Matthew Bramley, a local merchant who bought the garden containing the tree in 1846.

A familiar face returns to Thorneycroft Solicitors Macclesfield based Thorneycroft Solicitors has recently welcomed a familiar face back to their firm, as they continue to expand their Private Client department. Up until December 2011, Kirsten Boardman was an integral part of the Thorneycroft Solicitors team but for the last twenty months she has been part of a leading law firm in Bristol where in addition to running case load, she has been responsible for training a newly qualified solicitor and a trainee case handler. Having joined Thorneycroft Solicitors in 2006 immediately after graduating from Manchester University, Kirsten qualified as a solicitor in 2010 after gaining experience in a number of areas including personal injury, conveyancing, Wills and Probate, family matters and Lasting Powers of Attorney as well as estate and tax planning. During this period of time in Macclesfield, Kirsten developed a broad client base among local residents and also took part in a number of charity related events. The opportunity to return to the area, and Thorneycroft Solicitors in particular, was one that Kirsten found impossible to resist and she is now looking forward to helping the firm continue to develop the range of services that it provides to local people. “Thorneycroft Solicitors has built up a superb name for itself, during the past two decades, by providing

excellent levels of advice and customer service.“ said Kirsten. She adds“This, and the opening of a further office in Buxton, demonstrated to me their ambitions for the future”. Thorneycroft Solicitors Managing Director Rachel Stow is delighted to have been able to welcome Kirsten back to the firm. She explained “Having qualified with us, Kirsten developed a substantial client base locally and many individuals and families are delighted that she will now be able to look after their legal requirements once again” Kirsten will be based at the Thorneycroft Solicitors offices at Bridge Street Mills, where the firm now employs over 150 people, making it one of the larger employers in the town.

Beat The Utility Bills The gadgets that’ll save you cash and do your bit for the planet too

With summer already a distant memory, energy companies are rubbing their hands with glee. Cooler weather means bigger energy bills. Time to review a few energy saving devices then.

period of time. If you have an outdoor security light, consider swapping that too: while halogen security lights can use 400W or more, LED ones can be surprisingly bright with bulbs rated at just 10W.

You don’t need to spend a fortune: some of the most effective changes are the simplest. For example, one of the best bill-busters is to replace existing bulbs with lowenergy ones. Halogen bulbs are better than incandescent ones, but LED bulbs are better still: for example in a typical 6-light kitchen spotlight, you can replace six 50W halogen bulbs with six 3W LEDs - so the total energy use would drop from 300W to just 18W. Look for “warm white” LEDs if you want a natural light: some LEDs have a bluish light, an effect not everybody likes. Note if you want dimmable lights you’ll need dimmable bulbs and LED-friendly dimmer switches.

Turning things off can slash your energy usage too, and computers are particular offenders. Investing in the Ecobutton, which costs around £15, can pay for itself very quickly: press it when you take a break and it’ll put your PC into the most energy efficient standby mode. For TVs, a TV standby saver can put all your home entertainment kit to sleep when you put the TV into standby mode, and there’s an equivalent for PCs. Expect to pay £21 for a TV standby saver and around £16 for a PC one. The Energy Saving Trust also recommends the WAHL Eco Kettle, which uses 60% less energy than a normal kettle - but don’t spoil the savings by boiling more water than you actually need.

While the bulbs do cost more than traditional ones the price is coming down, and they last much, much longer than even halogens, so they’ll pay for themselves quickly and save you money over a long

Don’t forget about batteries either: swapping from normal batteries to rechargeable ones can save you hundreds of pounds in a relatively short space of time: according to

Which? magazine, you could save as much as £500 over 100 charges. Cutting down your gas usage isn’t quite as simple, but it’s still possible. Fitting a flow regulator such as the £5 Showersave to your shower slashes the amount of hot water your showers use, and the £25 Radiator BOOster can reduce the time it takes to heat a room, cutting energy usage in the process. Shower flow reducers can reduce your bills if you’re on a water meter too, as can the Hippo water saver, which reduces the amount of water used to flush your toilet. For really big savings on gas, give some thought to a new boiler: by replacing a D-rated boiler with an A-rated one, you could save around £181 per year in a typical detached house. If that’s a step too far, don’t forget the obvious, affordable options: you’ll save a fortune by insulating your house if its current insulation isn’t up to scratch and by turning the thermostat down a notch. You’ll find that energy efficiency work is often subsidised by government grants, and you might even be able to have it done for free.

A group of staff at Sutton Hall are rowing the distance of the Atlantic over a 3 month period in order to raise £20,000 for the children's ward at Macclesfield hospital. This involves each of them aiming for a million meters (or an hour a day consistently) but they are looking at a combined total at the end as it is the team effort that counts. This is a huge endurance challenge for them all and is no easy task! They will complete their row on the 13th September when they will be holding a BBQ at Sutton Hall with an auction with all prizes donated from local businesses and the money raised will also go towards their total. The aim of the money is to be able to purchase life saving equipment such as infusion pumps and life support machines to better enhance the facilities available for the children who are on the ward. As a group they are very passionate about this and are really enjoying the challenge so would like to get as many people as possible to donate. Ways to do this are on the Just Giving site: www.justgiving.com/sutton-hall24 Alternatively anyone can simply text a donation: text ATLA99 with the amount you want to donate to 70070 (Eg.

Making Sunday School Memories Together …

Were you a pupil at Macclesfield’s old Sunday School (the Heritage Centre on Roe St)? Did a family member or friend work as a teacher here? Did you take needlework classes with … or woodwork with ….? Do you remember having a lesson with ‘Ma’am’ in the Victorian Schoolroom? Or perhaps you were one of the many people who helped to save this iconic building from dereliction in the 1980s? If so, we need your help in designing a special exhibition celebrating the Old Sunday School’s 200th birthday in 2014! At Macclesfield Silk Museums, we plan to mark the anniversary of this much-loved landmark with a display made entirely from your memories. We are inviting local people to simply write their fondest memories of the Old Sunday School on one of our commemorative bicentenary postcards and these will then become part of a unique ‘memory board’ display which tells the history of the Old Sunday School in your own words. Whether you are 6 or 106, please join in and help us to create this exhibition - we’d love to hear your stories! Postcards are free and available from the Heritage Centre and Mulberry Tree Café on Roe Street, Macclesfield Library and the Visitor Info Centre.

Like many rescue centres in the UK they are swamped with staffies as they are the most abused and most misunderstood breed. The RSPCA are desperate to change the publicâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s perception of â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;staffiesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. The greatest hurdle is the misconception that staffies are aggressive dogs. This is totally untrue, in fact they are incredibly loyal and they are the only breed to have the words â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;totally reliableâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; in their breed standard. Furthermore, the Staffordshire Bull Terrier is the one of only two breeds from over 190 recognised by the UK Kennel Club to have a mention of the breedâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s suitability with children.

Self-Publishing Facts Everyone’s doing it, but what’s involved in self-publishing? James Smith @jsmithwriter You’re packing your bags after two weeks in the sun, and with a few hours to spare before leaving for the airport, you finish the last few pages of that 500page novel. It called itself a ‘thriller’, but it was more of a yawn than a page-turner, so you discretely leave it on the bedside dresser for the next holidaymaker to battle through. And a little later on the aircraft, you wonder: can I do better? Indeed, there are many writers doing better via the process of self-publishing. Some literary agents and publishers baulk at the notion of this disruptive new kid on the block stirring up trouble. But like the digital revolution in music, these intermediaries must adapt and innovate, or simply go out of business. Literary agents are no longer necessarily the gatekeepers to publishing success. The doors have opened for everyday people to reach the masses with their writing and recent established successes have proved that self-publishing is credible and here to stay.

To start, you need access to a computer and the Internet and be able to format your book for upload to a publishing website. This may sound quite technical, but there is plenty of information and help available, and you can always ask friends, relatives or even freelancers to do the job for you. Good material No matter how wonderful or ground-breaking your idea, you must present it as a well-written story with a good structure in order to give you the best chance of success. Hone the craft of writing to your best ability; this will afford you respect amongst your readership. As with all creative endeavours, you will be open to the critics, so at least tackle the technical side of writing to deter them from attacking you on a basic level. There are many websites and books providing excellent advice on how to improve your writing, and it’s vital to keep learning. Read widely and write continually to improve. ‘The Elements of Style’ by

Strunk and White is a brief and humorous read that will whip your writing into shape so that you can forge ahead with renewed confidence. Proofreading and editing Ask people outside of your circle of friends and family to read and comment on your work. It’s not easy to invite opinion, but just watch how views differ. You may, however, discover a consistent thread within their comments from which you can learn and adjust the prose accordingly. One of the wisest investments is to hire an experienced proofreader to check for grammatical and typing errors, and to provide editing suggestions on style. The extent to which the proofreader is involved creatively can be decided between you, but just remember that the biggest self-publishing blunder of them all is not having your work proofread. There are many freelance services available on the Internet, so do some research and obtain a number of estimates from the professionals. &RQWLQXHG RQ 3DJH  «

MACCLESFIELD TOWN CENTRE RENTAL MARKET OUTPERFORMS NATIONAL AVERAGE BY 57% As Letting specialists, we at BELVOIR are often asked to advise landlords about buy to let investments and one landlord recently asked about the wisdom of purchasing a buy to let property in Macclesfield. We discussed with him the fact that many of the enquiries we get from potential tenants are from people wanting to live in the centre of Macclesfield.

Thinking about this, we decided to dig a bit deeper. We investigated the area that extends roughly from Oxford Rd to the Silk Road and from Chester Road to South Park. We were amazed to see that, for many years, this central area of Macclesfield has been a top performer in the private rental market. Back in 2001, when across the country 9.9% of households were private renters, Macclesfield town centre had 17% of households renting from private landlords. By 2011 the national figure was growing, with 16% of households in privately rented accommodation. However the figure for Macclesfield town centre had risen to a staggering 28% of households! So, we wondered, how does that compare with other areas, which might be thought of as good places to invest in rental property. In both Bollington and central Wilmslow, the number of private renters has kept in step with national averages, seeing a steady rise up to 17% in Bollington and just 15.6% in Wilmslow. We also found that rental returns in Macclesfield are, on average, 20% higher than in Wilmslow. So Macclesfield town centre looks like a good buy to let investors bet. We give advice to many landlords who are thinking of investing in Buy to Let, so call into the Belvoir office on Mill Street for an honest, free and no obligation chat or call us on 01625 410950 $'9(57,6,1* )($785(

And now - Local Man publishes second novel! I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sure whether to class this as a book review or bring back an earlier feature, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Local People - what do they do?â&#x20AC;&#x2122;, as itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a bit of both really!! All the same, just recently, I had the pleasure of talking to David M Wynn, a local resident and author from Macclesfield. David, an experienced management consultant who did not start his writing career until his retirement, has just published his second novel at the age of 74! David told me that writing has provided him with a great sense of fulfilment since he gave up full time work and would recommend it for anyone who feels that their productive life ended when they retired. David, a lifelong enthusiast for books and reading, did say that the new trend for self-publishing has enabled him to get his books into circulation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think that the advent of e-readers and the ability for authors to self-publish is the most liberating thing to have happened in publishing in the last fifty yearsâ&#x20AC;?. Both of his novels are based around the same central character, Tom McLean. Tom works in Manchester but lives in Macclesfield and many of the local scenes should be recognisable to local residents! The first, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;A A Small Betrayalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, Betrayalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; published in 2012 and well received, is the story of a man who simply tries to help a young woman to benefit from her uncleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s legacy - a unique carbon free fuel process. But as Russian oligarchs and governments fight for control, he finds himself seriously out of his depth. This latest one, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Restitutionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Restitutionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, sees Tom McLean finding his Grandfatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s war journal in the loft. Little does he know that his innocent curiosity about a mysterious happening at sea in 1940 will lead him into a world of threats, betrayal and murder and put his own life in danger. The action takes Tom from Macclesfield to the Greek Islands and eventually to the Egyptian desert â&#x20AC;Ś Davidâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s third book will be based in the Lake District and is due to appear at the beginning of next year â&#x20AC;Ś. If you are interested in finding out more about David and his works, take a look at his website www.davidmwynn.com. www.davidmwynn.com The novels themselves can be downloaded onto your e-reader from Amazon (make sure you put the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Mâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; into the bar!). A factual piece, â&#x20AC;&#x2122;Living with Prostate Cancer - A Patientâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Survival Guide Guideâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, is also available to download from Amazon or from David himself.

Formatting Once you have the manuscript on your computer in a program such as Microsoft Word, you will need to have it formatted for upload to a site like Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP) or Smashwords. There are guidelines on these websites, and books that you can download free of charge, explaining the step-by-step process to add the relevant headings, copyright notices and table of contents to your files. It’s very important that the formatting is correct and there are freelance professionals that will oblige for a small fee. Designing the cover Many excellent selfpublished books are let

down by poor covers. Unless you are a graphic designer and have a talent for this type of work, then hire someone who can represent your work professionally. Often the cover is the first thing people will see on the Internet, so it must shine above the abundant competition. Publishing When your material is ready, you can upload and publish. The KDP and Smashwords sites enable you to prepare your material in the form of a draft via a ‘dashboard’, and when you’re ready, you can then set your price for various territories around the globe and submit it for publication. The book and cover is

checked for quality, and within 24 hours, released to the world on many websites and online stores. Subsequently, you may find that your book requires amendments or revisions, and this is all neatly handled by the online system. There is much to learn, but this quick-fire guide will hopefully inspire you to put pen to paper - or fingers to keyboards - to produce a book of which you can be proud. People of all backgrounds and ages are self-publishing, so if you have a great story, be sure to put it out to the world. Links kdp.amazon.com www.smashwords.com www.writersandartists.co.uk

Weed Attack by Pippa Greenwood

Ask a dictionary the definition of a weed and you’ll read that it’s ‘a plant growing in the wrong place’. Ask a gardener, and they’ll tell you that weeds are often the number one menace in their garden. Some weeds are pretty, some less so, but one thing they all have in common is that they are indeed growing where you don’t want them, and may be causing your garden plants to suffer. So if you want to wage war on those pesky weeds, and stand a chance of winning, take a look at my multi-pronged attack strategy.

Off with their Heads Whatever the weed problem, it’s essential to prevent them from setting seed as most weeds are very efficient at building up their numbers by seed. So even if you don’t have the time to sort the weed out properly, make sure you cut off its head before it has a chance to even start to set seed. The old saying that ‘one year’s seed is seven years’ weed’ isn’t far from the truth.

Stop Stowaways When you’re next shopping for plants in your local garden centre or nursery make sure that you only bring home what you want, not those pesky weed stowaways that often lurk on the compost surface. I always do a bit of weeding before buying: especially for weeds such as the innocent looking hairy bittercress (Cardamine hirsuta) with their tiny rosettes or leaves and pretty little white flower heads. Spaghetti roots Some weeds like couch grass, bindweed and nettles have amazingly resilient and far-reaching underground stems or roots. If you’ve just taken on a new plot of land, be it a garden or an allotment, there is a good chance that it’ll be riddled with at least one of these spaghettirooted weeds. Whatever you do, don’t succumb to the temptation to use a powered cultivator or rotovator as this will chop the roots in to little bits and end up spreading and increasing the problem in

the process.

Lawn Louts Lawn weeds such as dandelions and daisies are difficult to control as unlike the taller weeds, these rosette-forming plants won’t be harmed as you mow the lawn. One of the best methods is to tackle them with a sturdy old kitchen knife or a daisy-grubber tool. It may be a slow process but will allow you to dig them out individually. Deep Rooted Problems Some weeds such as docks and dandelions have tough and chunky roots that are very difficult to kill. And to make matters worse, if you leave any sizeable bit of the root in the soil, it’s likely to form a new plant. Do everything you can to take out the entire root as you’ll be saving a lot of time in the long run. I have recently discovered a great pocketsized weeder, originally from New Zealand but now manufactured over here. It’s brilliant for removing this sort of weed and others such as small thistles, creeping buttercups and so forth. Find out more in the ‘products’ section of www.

pippagreenwood.com. It is also great for easing weeds out from gravelled areas. Laying Carpet If large areas are weedy you could try the carpet option; literally covering the surface with a layer or two of carpet, held in place with bricks. If the carpet is placed fluffy side down and left in place for at least 18 months, the weeds will start to die off from lack of light. Make sure that the carpet is made from natural fibres, not synthetic or else youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be left with it in the soil, and for allotments, check that there are no restrictions on using carpet. Time it Right Some weeds such as the purple flowered oxalis spread by forming tiny

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;bulbilsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; or miniature bulbs below ground. If you try to dig these weeds out at this time of year, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll run in to trouble as the bulbils will be shed into the surrounding soil as you lift the plant out, making matters worse. Wait until next spring when the bulbils will be firmly attached and weed them out then.

Hoe, hoe, hoe An old fashioned and still just as useful method of weed control is the hoe. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re readily available at any decent garden centre and are a great way to weed your garden, especially if itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largely annual weeds such as chickweed or groundsel that invade your plot. Keep the hoe sharp and use it

regularly.

Careful what you Compost Only compost the green, leafy bits of weeds; avoid any chunky roots, and never put any flowering or seeding weeds in the compost heap. Some weed seeds will easily survive most domestic composting systems. Visit Pippaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website www.pippagreenwood. com for a great range of gardening products including Pippaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s favourite weeder, Nemaslug, Nemasys caterpillar, slug, ant and other biological controls, Enviromesh & Envirofleece and lots more besides.

After a short period of being closed, the long standing kitchen showroom on Henderson Street in Macclesfield has recently reopened having now been taken over by new management. The company is now being run by Jack and Martin. Martin has over 10 years of kitchen and bedroom experience with showrooms in Chester and North Wales and Jack is a local kitchen designer. Together they make a great combination! Both have lots of enthusiasm and ambition, both are adamant that they are looking to help the business grow and vitally, that they will be here for some time. The new showroom should be completed in September and both are looking forward to the challenge ahead. Jack told us, “We are able to sell kitchens and bedrooms for the first time buyer, couples on a budget or at the other end of the scale, to people who want exclusive designs. Whatever category the client falls into, however, we can save thousands of pounds for them.” The company offers free quotes, 3d drawings and, during the month of September, will be giving away a free oven with all orders over £3,500 making it a perfect time to go and visit KBB Macclesfield!

Life Begins The rise and rise of Shabby Chic

Visit any antique fair in any town in Britain nowadays and you will find an array of items that, twenty years ago, would have been considered better suited to go in a builder’s skip than take pride of place on a dealer’s stall. It may seem extraordinary that people are willing to part with their hard-earned cash to purchase pieces that are worn and damaged, but these items are popular because they meet the British public’s voracious demand for anything that can be described as “Shabby Chic”. So what is “Shabby Chic”, and why does this style now dominate the marketplace for home decoration and household goods? The term was originally coined in the 1980s by The World of Interiors magazine. Inspired by Mediterranean culture, the style reflected the increasing popularity of holidays in places such as Provence, Tuscany, France and Greece. In the 1990s TV programmes such as “Changing Rooms” encouraged homeowners to experiment with eclectic styles

and at that time a number of new home decoration products emerged onto the market. These triggered a surge of interest in different paint effects, including the ageing and layering techniques used by fans of Shabby Chic to mimic the weathered, sun-baked surfaces found in traditional Mediterranean buildings. The look combines bleachedout, subtle colours for furniture, walls and paintwork with household items that are either genuinely old and displaying signs of wear, or new and deliberately treated to look as though they have had a lifetime of use. At a time when we are all under pressure to work harder for less money, it’s not surprising that we are drawn to a fashion that evokes the past, harking back to a gentler, more relaxed way of life. Suzanne Rowett, owner of the Dorsetbased vintage style shop Shy Violet (www.shy-violet. co.uk), runs popular courses on specialist paint techniques. She believes the fashion for Shabby Chic is partly due to

By Kate McLelland an increase in female buying power. “The 20th century vogue for Brown furniture was a very masculine fashion, largely dictated by men, but current trends are much more feminine and women have much more influence when it comes to furnishing and decorating their homes.” If you want to learn how to transform pieces of furniture yourself, you can find several excellent “How to” videos on YouTube, but it’s best to start with a low-cost item from a charity shop or car boot sale. A flat matt finish is a must and if you want to create an illusion of age you should avoid pure white in favour of creams, gentle yellows, pinks and soft browns. For the Mediterranean look you can use bolder colour combinations, layering bright shades for a contrasting effect and rubbing down with different grades of sandpaper so the undercoat shows through at points where age and constant use would naturally rub away the surface. Once you have mastered a few simple techniques you will find it’s relatively easy to create your own Shabby Chic interior. Suzanne Rowett believes that these days the home is one of the few places where people can truly express their individuality and adds that reviving unique pieces of furniture can be very rewarding. “Once they start, many of my customers find it completely addictive”, adds Suzanne. “In fact, I’d say it changes their lives.”
