I would like to take this opportunity to thank our readers and advertisers for all your support and encouragement, it’s been disappointing that we have had to postpone Liverpool Fashion Week and the Positive Awards until next year.

HANKS? VERY MUCH
Tom Hanks is truly a man for the ages, but at 64 years young, does he consider his best years behind him? Not a bit of it…
e’s the fourth highest-grossing actor in Hollywood but, for the most part, Tom Hanks is referred to as being the nicest too. With his ‘aw shucks’ attitude, friendly laugh and habit of making ‘dad’ jokes – when asked to name something he didn’t know when he was 18, he chuckled: “I didn’t realise at 18 that girls want to have sex too… I thought it was a total one-way street” – it’s easy to forget he is essentially a cinematic titan. For all his friendliness, however, Hanks is a consummate professional, and respect is a mainstay he has carried with him throughout his 40 years in the business.
“There’s that saying, ‘treat others as you want to be treated yourself’, and in the current social and political climates I don’t think that’s ever been truer,” he begins. “We are in troubling times, but I’ve seen equally bad situations in the past and I’m sure we’ll come through it.” At least professionally, the actor is in a good place. True, in approaching retirement age, it would be understandable if Hanks decided to ease up on the high-octane blockbusters, but if his recent roles are anything to go by that looks unlikely. From reprising for the third time as historian
extraordinaire Robert Langdon in Dan Brown’s Inferno – the follow-up to The Da Vinci Code and Angels and Demons – to Clint Eastwood’s harrowing drama Sully, to the true story of press freedom in The Post, right through to the fourth instalment in the Toy Story saga, Hanks is still the leading man every studio wants, though these days it’s more ‘you’ve got to save the world’ rather than You’ve Got Mail. It seems this recent influx of work, and overall vigour for life, is down to Hanks being in the same position most fathers find themselves in eventually. “The kids are out of the house! All the kids are gone,” he laughs. “It’s
the greatest thing that has ever happened to Mr and Mrs Tom Hanks. Well, second greatest – after having the kids in the first place. But when they go, holy smoke it’s like you are dating again. It’s fantastic!” Born in Concord, California, to working-class parents who divorced when he was four, Hanks’ childhood was, at best, an example of the freewheeling Sixties; at worst, unsettling and isolated. He was raised for the most part by his father, and had periods of no contact with his mother. By the age of 10, he’d lived in 10 homes in five cities. Hanks has long admitted that he wasn’t the popular kid at school, describing himself as ‘geeky’ and ‘painfully shy,’ but he found solace in acting class where he began his enduring fascination with all things theatrical. Given his incredible achievements – including winning two consecutive Best Actor Academy Awards for Philadelphia and Forrest Gump – it may come as a surprise that Hanks’ proudest career moment occurred before he’d even landed his first professional acting role. After graduating from California State University, he decided if he was to take acting seriously he
ought to move to New York. So, with no real plan and a very big dream, the young actor, who had recently married his college sweetheart Samantha Lewes, set off to the east coast. “Individual jobs come and go, but I am proud that I had the courage to put the few possessions I had in the back of my car, and drive 2,000 miles away to only make 45 bucks a week,” he explains matter-of-factly. “A lot of people would be afraid to do that. I was about to have a kid, which I found out about halfway through, which was extraordinary, but rather than the huge list of reasons not to do it, I had only one reason to do it, which is ‘it’s going to be fun’. And the idea that something is going to come out on the other side of it.” ”The lessons I learned from that first job are the lessons that I adhere to today, which is it is your responsibility as an actor to show up on time, to know the text and to have an original idea in your head. If I had not been so willing to just go off and have fun doing that at that time, then I wouldn’t be here right now.” While his gamble certainly paid off, and in 1984 Hanks would land the role
that would make his name in the fantastical romantic comedy Splash, even now in 2020 he insists that in everything he does it is the investment of faith, effort and ambition that pays itself back. “It doesn’t matter if I’m turning up on set or tending to the weeds in the garden, I want to wake up every day feeling challenged, worthwhile and driven to succeed. Age fazes me in no way at all - it’s just a reference to how long I’ve been owning it,” he chuckles. Certainly, with some semblance of normality returning, post-lockdown, there are further opportunities ahead to prove he still has the determination to make each new day interesting. War movie Greyhound saw Hanks return to ‘ship steering’ quality last revisited in the brilliant Captain Phillips; while post-apocalyptic thriller BIOS sees the actor embrace the darker side of his personality as Finch, the last man on Earth, who has no option, seemingly, but to come to terms with his own lonely mortality. In Hanks, it seems that this role model for every demographic is going to entertain us for quite a bit longer. 7
DIARY RADIO & TV PRESENTER. SASSY MUM & SOCIALITE.
s we are edging nearer to Christmas I guess some days feel like Corona is never going to go away and we are all still trapped in the Truman show. Who would have said in January with a year’s worth of events planned that we would still be in a positon where we couldn’t live a normal life once again without the constant threat and worry of harming our more vulnerable family members with Covid. Hopefully through people remaining sensible and alert we will have a light at the end of the tunnel… or a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow for the news I’m about to share.
I am pleased to announce that LHK Productions will be going ahead with their first year in their new home at The Atkinson in Southport – a change in title and revised dates… BUT… I’ll be skipping back down the yellow brick road to Kansas with the Wizard of Oz! I am delighted for Lee Kelly as we were all so excited to be there
this year and from the 18th – 31st December we will be inviting you to join us in the Merry Old Land of Oz for some socially distanced panto fun! You can book tickets now https://www.theatkinson. co.uk/whats-on/events/ After 10 years of trying to work together on a project – I am delighted to say I have teamed up with the wonderful Miguel Doforo and now I am hosting my own Sunday show at KCC Live – “Simmo on a Sunday” from 3-6pm! It’s fabulous to be able to choose my own music and take requests from listeners – and of course being part of Miguel’s magic right in the heart of the Community. It’s been great to be able to do the KCC shows alongside Sandgrounder Radio in Southport – and of course now at BBC Radio Merseyside where I have been covering for Sean Styles. I was due to be having my first holiday abroad in 2 years to Spain with my
boyfriend and his family which sadly was cancelled – however we decided to have a few days away in Oxfordshire – and I can honestly say that it was the best few days I have ever had. We stayed in a converted barn in a little village called Aynho, to not have to set an alarm, or wonder where I had to be next to pick kids up from work or dance and to actually spend time together, going for long walks and dinner in country pubs was just wonderful – and amazingly I didn’t come back single!!! I won’t lie that one of the highlights was being asked for ID when trying to buy a bottle of gin, so, there are advantages to having to wear face masks after all!!!

ALLERTON CHURCH RECEIVES MOVING IN GIFT FROM REDROW
ornerstone Church Liverpool has relocated from the former Ramilies Road Chapel, on Ramilies Road, to the former Dovedale Baptist Church, on Dovedale Road, Allerton, to accommodate its growing congregation. Having raised sufficient capital to purchase the building, Cornerstone appealed to Redrow for help with renovation and received a donation of £1,000 to purchase 225 litres of paint. Operations director and fundraising coordinator Anna Wood explained: “Over the past 10 years we’ve gone from there being around 25 people at weekly meetings to 250 across two morning services, which meant we had to seek out alternative premises. Dovedale Baptist Church closed two years ago and the building was ideal for us, but it was in need of some TLC to bring it back to its former glory. “We want to be active in the community and having a newly decorated, clean space will be vital in us

being able to do just this. Thanks to Redrow we are able to redecorate the back hall space to make it more appealing for all of our activities for local people which include kids’ church meetings and toddler groups” Redrow’s donation to Cornerstone Church Liverpool was via a £10,000 community fund shared between local groups and good causes. The voluntary fund is
in addition to Redrow’s statutory obligations linked to the 100-home Allerton Gardens development, off Woolton Road, in Allerton. Cornerstone Church Liverpool is also fundraising for more extensive works to improve their new home, including replacing the roof of the main church building and repairing crumbling stone work and stained glass windows in the Grade II listed building.

LIFESTYLE CHATS TO TILE DESIGNER CORINNE TWINING AT PERSIAN GLAZES HOW DID YOU BECOME A TILE DESIGNER Tiles and colour have always been my passion, and having a tile showroom was like living in a sweetshop! One of our suppliers, Noreen Jaafar, made beautiful tiles with a very unusual backstory. She had researched an ancient Persian glaze system (coincidentally at Falmouth School of Art & Design) using natural mineral glazes, and adapted them for commercial use. I call her an alchemist because the glazes flow in the kiln, and she tames them to create beautiful fish, birds and animals. But it was the jewel colours of these glazes that drew me into creating contemporary designs with them.
WHAT QUALIFICATIONS DID YOU NEED Does A level Art
count?! No seriously, you don’t need qualifications to be a ‘designer’ – just ideas in your head and a
love of putting them together. WAS IT A DIFFICULT INDUSTRY TO BREAK INTO Well of course, actually selling your designs is a different thing. Design is a difficult industry to break into, full stop, and handmade tiles can be even more difficult because modern technology can produce brilliant copies these days. But I defy them to produce anything like Persian Glazes!
DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE I am
led by colour combinations and shapes, and how the shapes can be combined – a bit like building blocks. There is a Tile Pattern Designer on my website where you can have a lot of fun putting designs together.
DO YOU HAVE ANY SPECIFIC MATERIALS YOU LIKE TO WORK WITH AND WHY
Persian Glazes colours work beautifully with plain white, or black and grey tiles – also tumbled marble and mirror tiles. Add in some clever lighting and you can create a stunning tile
installation, inside or out. The glazes are waterproof but unfortunately can’t be used in swimming pools.
WHERE HAVE YOU FEATURED, THE STYLE OF HOMES YOU’RE APPEALING TO
Persian Glazes tiles really lend themselves to contemporary homes – and bars and hotels - but the colours, especially a mix of the collection of blues, will look stunning in any type of home or establishment. WEB: persianglazes.com

of Covid-19 and isolation, it has been so important to find new ways to connect with people, and many people have begun to find real value in the simple things in life. We celebrate the stories of hope across Liverpool where we have heard about neighbours reaching out to their neighbours in all sort of practical ways, whether it’s helping with shopping, or organising a street quiz, or picking up the telephone, all of these things have helped to foster peace in a time of crisis.”
ARE THESE THE SAFEST HOTELS IN LIVERPOOL? 3 Liverpool hotels take their place among the safest 175 hotels in the UK A list of 175 fully Covidcompliant UK hotels has been released by the hospitality industry’s Safe to Trade Scheme which helps holidaymakers to identify which hotels, bars, restaurants and cinemas are going the extra mile to ensure the safety of both their staff and guests. The Scheme, has been launched by top-ranking hospitality safety experts, including the former CEO of the Health and Safety Executive and Food Standards Agency. The three hotels in Liverpool that feature in the Top 175 Approved Safe to Trade Hotels in the UK have all been independently audited by the Safe to Trade Scheme’s team of expert Environmental Health Practitioners and have had to pass a strict approval process, as well as adhere to stringent health and safety guidance.
The hotels will now work with the experts at the Scheme on an ongoing
basis, who will audit their safety practices against its Safety Charter to ensure that they are running a Covid compliant operation, with this information made available to the public, so that they can make informed choices about where they patronise. Each of the 175 establishments now feature on a national register, that holidaymakers can consult to find a safe to trade venue, which is regularly updated following honest feedback – both good and bad – from staff and customers. The register is also made available to local and national safety regulators, to assist with
their requirement to risk rate businesses and a full list of current approved venues can be found at: https://safetotrade.org.uk/ safe-to-trade/search/ Mark Flanagan who chairs the Safe to Trade Scheme governance board comments: “We are delighted to announce the first 175 UK hotels to meet our stringent standards and be deemed as Safe to Trade. For those customers looking to make the most of what’s left of the summer with a UK staycation but who want to do so as safely as possible, the Safe to Trade Scheme provides peace of mind. Customers who consult our register of approved venues at safetotrade. org.uk can search for a hotel by name or location and be confident that every approved hotel that features on the list complies fully with the law.”

During the 18th century, Liverpool was part of the slave-trade triangle with West Africa and America and the West Indies. Thousands of enslaved Africans passed through the city and the trade generated great wealth locally. As well as being a port where enslaved Africans passed through, there is written evidence of a growing resident black population at this time. Earlier this year, Mayor of

The Revd Canon Dr Crispin Pailing, said: “We cannot hide from our past, and there is no institution from this era of our history which is free from the taint of this horrific trade. We cannot give justice to Abell and other enslaved Africans, but we can give them the dignity of naming them when we can, and we can give them status within the history of our city.”

CYPRUS LLC is a UK based holiday letting company attracting investment from Cyprus to the UK for the purpose of sourcing, acquiring, renovating, adapting property to create self service accommodation in the UK. Why Cyprus.
One of the Directors is now based in Cyprus with great connections. Cyprus is geographically in Europe but strategically close to North Africa, Turkey, Syria and other Arab speaking nations and is currently attracting inward investment from China as well as the nations already mentioned.
Economically, socially and technically the world is changing rapidly and we believe investors will look to secure their futures by investing in a country that historically thrived under huge challenges, by way of example WW2, whilst at the same time supporting free markets. Though things change we believe a free market economy is a value that the British Economy will not suppress.
LLC has connections with a publication that can serve to attract inward investment to the UK. In essence we can serve, develop, attract and close deals of inward investment to the UK.
Given the government has left Europe as a trading bloc the government will seek to open up new markets from the Americas to Austral-Asia continents which will inevitably be good news for ports such as Liverpool, Hull & Southampton bringing inward jobs and investment. LLC will seek to capitalise on this opportunity.
The Pandemic could justifiably curb enthusiasm for overseas visits making holiday breaks in the UK more attractive. Call +44 151 236 503 or Email Info@lifestylelivingcyprus.com 29
