CREATIVE CHRISTMAS WORDS BY MARYA MCCANN

In the bleak midwinter of cuts, austerity, and inflation what can we do to spread Christmas cheer? Your Move readers from around the city have all pitched in with their own ideas for how we can make this Christmas more creative and exciting in these frugal days. Natasha Goodwin, from Aigburth, learnt this tip at a Christmas family day at Speke Hall many years ago. She said: “This is a really easy way to make your home smell of Christmas and just sitting and making these decorations evokes the whole period.

“All you need is a handful of whole cloves, oranges and a fork. Use your fork to make holes in the orange and then press each clove into the spaces. The smell is absolutely fantastic and they last all the way through Christmas.” Steve Dubrieux, from Sefton Park, is planning a history-

Scents that linger through winter

themed Christmas for his family this year. Said Steve: “Money is definitely tighter this year and as we have three kids we made the decision to really try and stay within a budget.” The family is planning a 1940’s Christmas. “We are going to keep to the theme for everything this year so we have used a history website to get ideas on the decorations,” he said. “We have made most of them already and the Christmas dinner will be on the rationing model – hopefully resulting in less waste. And apart from getting the kids one main present each, Father Christmas is going to stick to board games, books, and model planes. By not buying loads of cheap stocking fillers we seem to have saved a fortune already.” Christmas On The Home Front by Mike Brown (Amazon £12.99)

HOT TOPIC

Some of the ideas she has thought up and promotes during her Christmas sessions include: 

Filling as big a box as you can find with blown up balloons. As they open the box different coloured balloons will pop out and hopefully provide an hour of fun (though probably better for younger children).

On the issue of Christmas trees, the Real versus Fake debate continues this year. It is personal preference really but if you are still undecided...

1944. Gifts and food are discussed with a look at the presents available, and in vogue. As shortages took a hold of the country, various make-do-andmend solutions were introduced. The book provides a fascinating insight into how people adapted food recipes to cope. Anne Griffiths, from Childwall, still has decorations from her own childhood in the 1950s. She said: “Each year another one usually falls off the tree and gets smashed; they are really fragile, coloured glass baubles, which were my mums.” To make up for the ones she loses she replaces each one sparingly. “Rather than buy more decorations every Christmas I try to buy just one or two each year,” she said. “I found some beautiful china decorations a few years ago in Cheshire Oaks and it’s started a tradition in the family. My daughters also buy one each and so every year our trees have an extra decoration, which has thought and meaning attached to it.” Jenny Hickson, who works in financial literacy for Citizens Advice in Garston, is currently planning budgeting sessions for Christmas. Said Jenny: “Being frugal at Christmas is not about restricting yourself, and dwelling on the things you can’t buy. It’s more about being creative in the ways you give and show how much you care about your family and friends.”

Sitting down and working out your budget over the next four weeks, rather than buying everything in one go helps to focus the mind on how much you realistically have to spend this year.



Saving money on the essentials can free up money for fun things. Jenny even advises people to check their fuel suppliers and the tariff they are on as soon as possible, in case there is any chance of saving money this month.



Christmas shaped cookies and even orange and lemon peelings can look lovely on your tree and they are really cheap to make.

Insulate from the cold  It’s that time of year when we reach for the thermals and woollies and the boiler breaks down leaving us fighting for precious candle space to warm our exposed fingers. Avoid a cold winter with The Advice Centre, who are offering free cavity wall and loft insulation for people who receive benefits, and at 60 per cent subsidised for people in employment. Gary Turpin, director at The Advice Centre, said: “At this time of year if the cavity wall is not insulated then a lot of energy will escape. We will put a layer of insulation between your outer and inner brick and fully insulate your loft. So all energy is kept in and in the summer it also cools down the property.” For more information visit The Advice Centre, 4-12 St Mary’s Road, Garston, L19 2RY or telephone 0151 427 7259.

Web developer Chris Joyce and girlfriend Nicky Lindsay, nursery nurse, moved into a threebedroom home at Sevenoaks, Rock Ferry. The couple bought the house under the shared equity scheme through Lovell.

The home comes with a garden, which was pre-turfed and has a shed and a water butt. We were previously renting a house so we weren’t allowed to do anything with the garden but now that we’ve got our own garden we can do all kind of things with it and have BBQs.

My mum saw an advert for the house and that Lovell were doing good offers. We had lived in rented properties, in Bebington and Prenton, for five years and although we had been saving, we were having problems saving enough for the deposit which put us off buying. I never thought this would become a reality for us so quickly, and it certainly wouldn’t have without the incentives being offered by Lovell. The 75/25 shared equity scheme we opted for made it possible for us to find the £4,800 for a five per cent deposit. I was amazed that, not only were we able to pull together a deposit, but our monthly mortgage payments are now £150 cheaper than the rent we were paying previously.

CALL NOW

The walls are magnolia; the hall has a green and black theme and the living room has a red and terracotta theme. I would like to make the drive bigger and put a conservatory in the back. We’ve got a lot of pictures to put up yet; It’s nice to have a few pieces of art to hang on the walls.

My favourite part of the home is how energy efficient it is. We have solar panels in the roof, so through the summer we had lots of free hot water, our gas bills in our last home were horrendous and here it’s only £2 per month even when the solar panels have stopped generating energy for us. The windows are treated to keep the heat in, we have loft insulation and a compost bin in the garden as well as a water butt.

My sister has recently followed in my footsteps and purchased a Lovell home in Kensington Square, Liverpool. Our friends and family have been impressed that we have managed to get our foot on the property ladder with such ease.

VANESSA WHITE INTERVIEW

THE SATURDAYS The UK’s leading girl band are back with their latest album On Your Radar, out now, and stopping off in Liverpool on December 3 at the Echo Arena on their biggest tour to date. Your Move talked to Vanessa White, the youngest of the group, about the upcoming tour and album. The half-Filipino, Yeovil-born singer has been in show business from a young age, already singing the lead in hit West End musical The Lion King when she was barely in her teens. The Saturdays with their sparklingly fluorescent hyper-pop burst on the music scene in 2007 racking up five smash-hit singles and a platinum debut album, and counting. INTERVIEW BY DINA KARIM

You’ve been very busy lately with a new album and preparing for the upcoming tour. Tell us a little more. Well, I’m chilling at home today! We’re keeping ourselves very busy, we’ve got the new album out. We started working a year ago on it, we’re really excited - it’s quite a

personal album. We have all gone in together; there is a strong vibe of togetherness in the studio. The new album is a lot sexier ranging from fierce pop to ballads, it’s definitely a different more grown up sound. It’s also a lot more RnB than anything we’ve done before. What’s your favourite track on the album? My favourite song is Do What You Want With Me; I went from hating it to loving it and now it’s my favourite. It has a

dubstep vibe to it, and I love what it says. I like listening to lots of old music and I love Beyonce and Corinne Bailey Rae. Are you excited to be back in Liverpool for the UK tour? We’re coming to Liverpool early December, I feel like everyone will be great, there will be such a great vibe. I’m always thrilled with Liverpool, it has the biggest cheerers. There’s nothing better than being on stage. There’s not going to be that much different from the previous tour we did. How did The Saturdays get together? The band got together four years ago and we never thought we would be here four years later. When I first auditioned for the band I was petrified to the point where my legs were shaking! I almost ran off stage. We had a meeting about names and because Saturday is the best day of the week and it looked like a popstar name it was perfect. We travel a lot, and write our music while on tour and do amazing routines - it’s a dream come true. What do you do on your days off? I don’t really get a lot of days off and when I do I do boring stuff like emptying my suitcases! My favourite thing is doing tours, there’s so much more that we do than just perform. The band is my life, whatever I do is for the band and we all support each other.

 The Saturdays will be performing at Liverpool Echo Arena on December 3. Their new album On Your Radar is out now.

INTERIOR DESIGN

Unique Christmas wreaths

A HOUSE OF CARDS We really need some suggestions on how to display the numerous Christmas cards we receive each year from our friends and family. Every year the cards end up on the windowsills, small tables, mantelpieces and some have even found their way into the kitchen shelves. We need practical help, do you have any suggestions? Help is at hand with this quirky Christmas card holder from velvetbrown.co.uk. The slim line display rack holds up to twenty cards and it really solves the problem on where to hang your cards in a fun and practical way. Each card slots between the little wire Christmas trees. If you receive lots of cards over Christmas why not invest in several of these fun stands and you could have a really unique Christmas display of your own. www.velvetbrown.co.uk

I love the festive season and can’t wait to the celebrations to start. Last year I tried to find a wreath for my apartment door, I had so much trouble trying to find one in the end I gave up my search. This year I am determined to find the perfect wreath, could you help me? I am looking for a wreath that is quirky and contemporary, as I live in an apartment and I want it to look fantastic in the communal corridors and bring Christmas cheer to everybody that sees it. Cost is also important, as I would like to make this grand gesture with a limited budget. I think you’re going to have to definitely start your celebrations early this year. I have found the ideal wreath that fits your requirements perfectly. The wooden bauble wreath available from notonthehighstreet.com priced at £15, made in Britain. It is a funky modern take on a traditional wreath, it is flat made from laser cut design of clusters of Christmas baubles. The natural wood finish would look fantastic in a modern apartment building, but for a more individual look you could easily spray paint it with any colour of your choice. www.notonthehighstreet.com

CHARITABLE DECORATIONS We work in a large office building in the city centre and our employer has said that we can decorate our offices this year but the decorations must be tasteful and in keeping with the contemporary look of the building and not clutter the work surfaces. We thought we would write to you to see if you could point us in the right direction, what would you consider to be tasteful? Why not surprise your employers and make parts of the decorations yourselves; you could even raise some money for charity. Most offices have paintings hung on the walls, if your office does why not take them down and store. My idea would then be for you to invest in some cheap picture frames, there are some great bargains about and get to work making Christmas art work. If all the staff get involved you could have an art sale before you break up for Christmas and raise money for charity. Remember to group the pictures in spaces to make the maximum impact. People will have had fun and by raising some money for charity you will be able to spread the spirit of Christmas a little further.

TABLE TALK

MARYA MCCANN HAS LUNCH WITH.... Ruth Ledson, senior lettings negotiator at Northwood, at Pod.

O

ver lunch at Pod on Allerton Road with Northwood’s senior lettings negotiator, Ruth Ledson, I learnt that Your Move had played a significant role in her career. Said Ruth: “I was working in retail at JD Sports when I saw a job advert in Your Move for an admin post. I wanted to try something different and so I applied and got the job. That was five years ago, and Northwood has grown considerably since then.” Ruth is based between the West Derby office and Northwood’s new office on Allerton Road. “Since we opened we have been really busy,” she said. “The first property advertised in the new office was let within five days of being advertised." As we look at the lunchtime menu (wraps, pasta, salads and burgers to choose from) Ruth tells me that Northwood now has over 80 offices nationwide and is the number one provider of ‘guaranteed rent’. “Guaranteed rent is a great risk-free way for landlords to rent out properties,” said Ruth. “We guarantee to start an agreement within 26 days from receiving the landlord’s instruction and the rent will be paid the same day every month, even if the property is vacant and there are rent arrears. So, this really is a no-hassle, no-risk way to let your property without any exceptions that you will find with traditional landlord is just spicy enough, and quite insurance.” subtle,” she said. We both chose wraps. Ruth Ruth, who lives in Warrington, took a chance with the has witnessed the changes in the Chicken Piri Piri (she rental market since she doesn’t like food joined Northwood. too spicy) and I Acknowledging the “Guaranteed chose national and Halloumi and international rent is a great Red Onion. constraints on risk-free way for Served lending, she said: landlords to with baby “Obviously, there are spinach factors which are rent out leaves and making it more properties.” cherry difficult for people to tomatoes, the get mortgages or sell their wraps were really properties. soft and floury with “The result of this is that more substantial filling. “The chicken people are deciding to rent out

their homes or to rent themselves, whilst they see how things change over the next 12 months.” In addition to the lettings side of the business the Allerton Road branch is also keen to attract sellers. Said Ruth: “To celebrate the new office we have a really good offer of zero per cent commission for actually selling your home. We are hoping it will help us to build up our name and reputation in the area.” Out of the office, Ruth relaxes by going to the gym and reading. “I’m also enjoying reading the Immortal series at the moment,” she said.

Prices: Well priced lunch menu. Homemade soups at £3.95, burgers £7.95, Pod salads are £3.95 and you can add from a list of extras including bacon, avocado and goat’s cheese. Parking: Quite busy around Allerton Road at lunchtime.

Good for: Small intimate tables for two and groups of friends meeting for drinks and tapas in the evening. To book a table call 0151 724 2255

Tate Liverpool’s Alice in Wonderland exhibition is no less ambitious than the tales from Lewis Carroll, as it provides a comprehensive historical exploration of how the stories have influenced the visual arts. Feeling like you’re tumbling down the rabbit hole yourself, the exhibition space is huge as it winds chronologically from Carroll’s original manuscript and Sir John Tenniel’s famous illustrations in the first edition

through to Salvador Dali and the Surrealist movement, and, of course, the photos of 12-year-old Alice Liddell herself who in her haunting poses inspired Carroll’s tales. The exhibition is a wonderful representation of what Carroll created; officially the ‘grandfather’ of the Surrealist movement Tate Liverpool has outdone itself in combining the artists from Dali, Max Ernst, René Magritte, Dorothea Tanning and Anna Gaskell and so many more. Accessible to everyone, the exhibition combines the text from the tale and the visual, a real treat for the art connoisseur to families exploring the world of Alice. Exhibition runs until June 3.

GO LIVERPOOL

My favourite with... DWEEZIL ZAPPA There’s no better credentials than the son of a rockstar, and Frank Zappa’s son Dweezil continued the legacy of his father by performing the classic 1974 album 'Apostrophe' in sequence and in its entirety, as well as a host of other Zappa favourites at the Liverpool Philharmonic last week.

Thing about Liverpool

We played a concert here last year, which was a fun experience to be in the city of The Beatles and we played Eleanor Rigby. Unfortunately, though, you don’t see much of the city when touring so I would like to visit Liverpool properly one day.

Musician

My dad obviously, he’s the most inspiring. I also love Randi Rhodes, Eddie Van Halen, Jimmy Page and Jimmy Hendrix.

Music venue

Playing in an outdoor-style amphitheatre since it has better acoustics. In Quebec, right down by the water, it is reminiscent of a European city.

Book

Would be a manual for a guitar preamp. I don’t have a lot of time for reading but I do read books to my two daughters like Diary of a Wombat.

Holiday destination

Hawaii because my Gran was born there so growing up I used to visit a lot; I also love the smells and the way I can just relax. I also like romantic getaways in Italy and Bali.

Film

Time Bandits. It’s pretty entertaining; I like the absurd nature of humour like in Monty Python.

Food

Thai food; I once had a cooking show on television (Dweezil and Lisa on the Food Network), so I do like to cook.

Item of clothing

I’m not really obsessive about clothing; I tend to just wear jeans, t-shirt and tennis shoes.

DWEEZIL ZAPPA TOURING... Dweezil Zappa is touring the UK in November and December, doing 14 shows in 18 days.
