dear carl and reece
could you advise me on how to sell my products on social media sites such as facebook,twitter?
social media provides businesses with numerous opportunities to sell goods and services to consumers according to a recent survey,98% of respondents said they planned to make at least one purchase through social shopping in 2021,68% of shoppers made at least one purchase directly from social media there are a number of points you'll need to consider before you start to sell your products online.are you marketing to the public or other businesses? different audiences use social media in different ways if you were selling to businesses you would want to consider linkedin as this is a site aimed at the corporate world.facebook is the most popular social media platform with the public,so we'd certainly advise you to start building a presence there
next,it's important to have a strategy in place to guide you create specific objectives that tie back to your business goals for example if you find 1 in 10 new followers
making a purchase,set a goal to increase your facebook followers by 10% over the next six months the same goes for your website,if you ' re seeing 1 in 20 users buying from your site,say to yourself,'i will increase the volume of visitors clicking on my website by 25% over the next three months by posting content on facebook '
upload bright,interesting photos that showcase the quality of your wares (instagram is especially useful for showcasing products as it is an image-orientated platform) create short,attention-grabbing video clips of your products as these are popular and attract lots of attention 'Behind the scenes' style videos are always a good idea!this strategy will encourage your followers to read your posts,like and share them even better,you'll encourage them to click through to your website and buy your products if you ' ve got a budget consider using facebookadvertising as you'll be able to supercharge your progress by immediately targeting the specific audiences you ' re looking for with ads good luck!

county council as the education authority to identify a suitable location for the new Building school.
national housing developers show interest in participation with ‘Your Postcode’, park community school and the national house Building council (nhBc) to deliver a new training facility to offer schoolchildren opportunities to learn basic trade skills in preparation for their further development through apprenticeships and qualification for lasting careers in the nations largest industry not for many years has such an opportunity existed other than through the apex centre in park parade run by park community school.the basic trade teaching and leaning offered there will be significantly extended in the new Building school offering access to many skills in short supply throughout the country national housebuilding although increasing is nowhere near meeting the needs of our growing population, with housing waiting lists ever growing and need for housing supply becoming progressively behind the level of demand. efforts are being made to engage with hampshire
it is anticipated that training places will be offered to any local school wishing to participate in the endeavour, tuition will enable pupils to demonstrate their abilities when seeking apprenticeships on leaving school, by a leaving certificate in recognition of the teaching leaning and skill levels reached thereby enhancing their chances of selection by the participating development companies.

withstand the journey by ship down to the sub-continent as it turned out,it was probably pretty ropey by the time it got there,which is why they all drank gin and tonic! hops also give a delightful aroma and in a minor way,help to clear or clarify the beer yeast. this little miracle of nature is all around us. sometimes this is a good thing, sometimes not so much.what yeast is of course, is a single celled micro-organism that’s classed as a fungus. it’s what gives you your daily bread and a bit like water we, or the whole world could not function without it.
there’s a hell of a lot of them but the particular yeast i’m interested in has been found to be perfect for the production of beer because it has a serious hunger for a particular type of sugar (maltose) and lucky for us, will convert all that sickly sweetness into alcohol. hooray! without
going into it too deeply, my little darling yeast is called saccharomyces cerevisiae and that’s an “ale” yeast. now… if you want to make a lager (which of course is a type of beer), you would use a different yeast and until it was re-classified, was called, believe it or not, saccharomyces carlsbergensis but that’s another story so, there you have it.the big four this is just a taster of what it’s all about and there’s so much more i can tell you about all the many many types and styles of this wonderful beverage called beer don’t forget to drink responsibly and above all else enjoy this thing that has been an integral part of our heritage since the year dot. cheers!
Back in the late 1950’s beer was a shilling a pint - equivalent now to 5p yes 5p a pint! there was nearly a national strike as the government put an old penny (less than half a new pence) on that cost.
you can now pay more than £5 a pint. that’s an increase of 100 times.
petrol then cost 4/11 a gallon - equivelent to about 25p a gallon - 3p a pint or 5.5p a
litre - yes, cheaper than beer! petrol now costs £1.43 a litre if you’re lucky this represents an increase of 26 times. if petrol had increased similarly to the cost of beer it would cost £5.55 a gallon. would be cheaper to run cars on beer… inflation of £1 in 1958 is equivelent to £23.4 today on that basis beer would at today’s prices would have been £1.17 a pint
and petrol 70p a pint or £5.60 a gallon£1.23 a litre
where we might be in another 70 years is anyone’s guess but whilst petrol will be a thing of the past beer won’t!
we will probably be running our transport on hydrogen pushing out litres of water from which we could make our beer or is that pushing the green agenda too far?

The new pension reforms explained
in July this year the chancellor, Jeremy hunt, announced a package of reforms designed to boost pensions and increase investment in British businesses. known as the mansion house reforms after the venue where the chancellor delivered his speech, the plans aim to unlock up to £75bn of corporate investment and increase the pension pots of retirees by 12%, equivalent to £1,000 per year
the uk economy is more than 15 years into a period of low economic
growth, underpinned by stagnant growth in labour productivity several factors contribute but one area of broad agreement, according to the resolution foundation, is the country’s low investment rate
hunt’s announcements on pensions came with five reforms. some consultations will be needed to hammer out the details but all final decisions will be made ahead of the autumn statement later this year, said hunt.
the reforms will be guided by the chancellor’s three golden rules: to secure the best possible outcome for pension savers, whilst prioritising a strong and diversified gilt market, and strengthening the uk’s position as a leading financial centre
first, the largest defined contribution pension schemes, including aviva, nest and aegon, have signed
a ‘mansion house compact’ committing them to allocating at least 5% of their default funds to unlisted equities by 2030.
By paul underwood, director
second, the government will “facilitate” a programme of defined contribution consolidation “to ensure that funds are able to maintain a diverse portfolio of bonds, equity and unlisted assets and deliver the best possible return for savers”.
third, ahead of the autumn statement, the government will explore whether it can establish investment vehicles via the British Business Bank.
fourth, hunt announced a “permanent superfund regulatory regime” for the 5,000 or so defined benefit schemes which operate under a different regulatory scheme lastly, the government will open a consultation on doubling existing
investment held by local government pension schemes (lgps) in private equity to 10% which could unlock £25bn by 2030 hunt said his plans “could have a real and significant impact on people across the country”
the proposals have been welcomed by some experts, but they also urged the government not to neglect small to medium businesses (sme’s) who account for 80% of the uk’s economy and should also benefit from easier access to capital funding.

“we created this sanctuary here as we believe they deserve a comfortable safe home, and quality care and affection for the rest of their lives.we rely on donations from our supporters however, so we’re really grateful for this incredible help from Barratt homes.the money will be used to fund the costs of our donkeys’ ever mounting medical care ”

in my clinics i have to say this is probably the most popular reason why people come to see me iBs can be the bain of someones life, but to be honest its not too difficult to treat as long as you are doing the right things.your gut works beautifully most of the time, and is designed to deal with a lot. But from my knowledge, if there is continuous stress, or continuous bad eating habits, skipping meals, a stomach infection etc it can trigger irregular bowls. some people get it mildly, others severe, where they literally do not want to leave the house for fear of not being able to find a loo nearby
the first thing you need to do is rebalance the gut flora. here is my top list of things to do when you are suffering.the majority of time there is no need for medication, most of the time it is resolvable with everything we have in nature
1 clean up your diet - get rid of processed salts and sugar your liver won’t like these foods and all you are doing is challenging the body more by eating things that are not going to serve your health.
2 take half a teaspoon of chlorella dailyyes this might taste a little like pond water, but just find a way to take it as best you can. i recommend adding some to coconut water, or to a fresh juice chlorella works amazingly well at
removing toxins from the gut, liver and blood. But it also adds good bacteria, minerals and helps to purify the blood. its one of my favourite goto's if someone comes to me with gut issues because after 6-8 days of taking it you really do start to feel the difference
3 sauerkraut - just 2 teaspoons with your food daily will make so much difference to your gut. it helps to balance gut bacteria and gives you a truck load of nutrients at the same time the problem is when someone has suffered from gut issues for a while, they often start to feel depleted because they have been cutting so much substance out of their diet to try and help, but actually they forgot to add in the really good stuff in the process.
4 chia seeds - not only do they help to balance blood sugar levels, and give you a boost of omega oils, they help to
need it in the local area, and the hayling island donkey sanctuary is not only providing a wonderful home for these intelligent creatures, but also a
hayling island donkey sanctuary originally started with just two donkeys, ollie and rusty, who were giving rides to children on hayling island seafront. it is now home to 27 donkeys and is open to visitors ys, and ear
Health and fitness in 2023
smooth the way for your poo yes i know its a subject that we don’t like to talk about, but we all do it, so lets make sure you are going for a poo every day and clearing those bowels out. having regular bowel habits is key to a healthy gut.and if you gut is healthy, then chances are, you will be too
5 drink water - add lemons, limes, ginger, mint and even some berries to a large jug of water and make sure you drink it daily its refreshing and delicious. if you want to be super good about your health filtered water is best. do not drink from a plastic bottle because it leaches chemicals that are potentially harmful for you.try and have a glass bottle if possible also if you have digestive issues ice water is not good either! it puts out your digestive fire which stops your stomach from being able to digest things probably causing pain, gas or discomfort.try room temperature or warm water to sooth all the way
- easy to treat naturally
from top to bottom! literally!! also think about the planet when you have a hundreds of plastic water bottles every week.
6. cut out fizzy/carbonated drinks - they play havoc with your digestion and are simply a 'no no' if you want to feel better
7 go plant based - focusing on more fruit and veg is essential for your digestion.add mango or water melon to your green salads, grate carrot and beetroot, add hydrating cucumber and iron rich radishes.then add lashings of fresh lime, olive oil and garlic as a dressing and boom - you have a tasty zingly salad ready to go if you need help or want to discuss any health concerns drop me an firstname.lastname@example.org

Life is for thriving…not just surviving
when we talk about classic cars one of the most prominent topics is restoration.with several tv shows featuring big names bringing classic car restoration into people's homes and the continued popularity of classic car shows there is more awareness than ever of car restoration. over the past decades, the classic car industry has grown from small backstreet garages tinkering away to large and wellorganised businesses.along with this, the standards we expect of our cars have gone up the quality of finish of many classic cars is way beyond that achieved when they were first built.
so, what is restoration? at twyford moors we generally undertake full nut and bolt restorations.
this process involves stripping a car right back to its constituent parts (e.g. every nut and bolt) and refurbishing each component to be as good or better than new for others, a restoration might simply involve repairing some metalwork, respraying the car and attending to any necessary mechanical faults.
for me, restoring my own wolseley at home, it is all about carefully preserving as much originality as possible. i value the car's age and idiosyncrasies for sentimental reasons.
in my opinion, a restoration is a personal journey for you and your cherished car, as unique as each individual.whether you entrust your car to a professional restorer or painstakingly refurbish it at home by yourself it reflects your tastes, aspirations, and skills. perhaps we cannot define “restoration” but variety and individuality are what make the classic car scene so vibrant.what is certain is that taking a wreck of a car to a show winner is not for the faint-hearted!

Cycle Clinic Cycle Clinic
By mike skiffins, portsmouth ctc
Q are modern bikes better than traditional ones? they all seem more complicated.
a in many ways the modern bikes are better, and nothing beats the thrill of getting a new bike, but at the same time there's nothing wrong with the traditional bike which has been around in the same form for about 100 years.
over those 100 years, of course, there have been changes and improvements.
as metal science has developed new materials, often as a result of the needs of theworldwars, and also aeroplanes which needed new materials, the metal tubes that the bike is made from started to get lighter and stronger as a result they were able to make the tubes slimmer, and the whole bike became lighter
early bikes had the brakes operated by steel rods and levers which have been replaced entirely by cable brakes using a twisted steel 'cord' which is not exposed to the air so can't get rusty and weighs a lot less.the brake mechanism itself has evolved to be more effective and is usually made of aluminium so is lighter and rust free
scientists have improved the rubber for brake pads and for tyres, too, so the
modern bike is more effective and safer however, special types of riding brought out specialist bikes, for example riding on rough ground and through wooded country was improved by adding 'suspension' which would absorb the shocks and bumps.
the sport of BmX riding developed from this and looks great fun, but it is a specialised activity for which a normal bike isn't really suited, and the bikes themselves aren't really suitable for riding on the road.the 'traditional' bike was usually reliable and the common faults (like a puncture) were easily fixed, often at the roadside by the rider themselves. cycle racing like the tour de france, makes extreme demands of the riders and the bikes so engineers developed sophisticated improvements. electric gear changing, hydraulic brakes etc and these tend to 'trickle down' to the general public in the same way that racing car features eventually get to the road car, and paris fashion in clothing gets on to the high street.
an exception is disc brakes which have become commonplace on road bikes,but
mike was a life-long cyclist, having ridden in his youth with cycling clubs in north london.when he moved to this area he concentrated on photography and built up a business as a wedding photographer with a studio in havant.this fitted well with his interest in old cars, and he would use his vintage rolls-royce as a wedding car he built up a collection of veteran bikes, amongst them: a penny farthing, a boneshaker and a side-by side 1897 fixed wheel sociable which he and ann rode on veteran cycle club rides.
he drove his Bullnose morris oxford to australia.
i recall him saying that when he married ann he told her something to the effect of: ‘you won’t be rich, but you will have fun’. and mike was all about having fun and adventure he bought a freddie grubb tandem and two weeks later, having ridden it 15 miles, he and ann toured in thailand on it.they also toured in india, costa rica, Brunei, Bangkok to singapore and of course, rather mundanely, in france the freddie grubb was replaced by other tandems and finally by a george longstaff tandem trike, on which i think he was the first of us to install an electric motor
most of us knew him as a keen member of the portsmouth ctc he was a supporter in the 1980s of the havant cycling campaign which lobbied for the conversion of the hayling Billy trail.when he retired, he was instrumental in getting the wednesday rides going. he and chris davies would ride from the havant post office and gradually more and more riders joined them.
mike's photography skills and interest led him to found the havant camera club
in the 1950s and this is still thriving today many of us remember how practical he was at all manner of tasks, and in his garage were bound to be the correct tool for most tasks no puncture was too hard to fix when he and ann found it difficult to get on and off the tandem trike, they both rode solo tricycles for short rides around home when we lose someone, we lose not only their physical presence but also their lifetime of experience and knowledge, and all their memories.
mike's long history of riding around the area as well as abroad led to him leading rides, often to unusual places, such as ford open prison, or following the line as near as possible of the old arundel - portsmouth ship canal which added interest to the usual 'scenery and coffee stop' rides.
some club members will remember a short hands-on tutorial he gave at home in how to build a bicycle wheel. in this case putting new rims on to existing wheels. mike donated copies of many of his old photographs to Your Postcode, so he tried to make sure his knowledge and memories were passed on.
the club will miss both of them.
were resisted by the racing fraternity because of the perception that the disc could cause serious cuts in the event of a crash.
in the case of bikes, some of these specialist features, such as suspension, add weight and complexity so that if they go wrong you can't fix it yourself. for weight and streamlining reasons lightweight alloy or carbon fibre tubes have been adopted on some bikes and these are recognisable by being fatter and a bit oval shaped compared to the round tubes of the trad bike what difference this makes to the ordinary rider is doubtful, two hundredths of a second off the time it takes to ride to the shops is irrelevant add to that that repairing these exotic materials is more difficult than brazing steel and you can see that 'improvements' are not always for the better
to sum up, older style bikes are still rideable and perfectly good for most purposes so unless you are a gadget freak and must have the latest, i'd say the traditional bike is fine

EMSVALLEY MEMORIAL ARBORETUM
following on from the article in a previous edition of your postcode, further progress has been made and continues.
marian forster, local emsworth artist designed a beautiful sign to welcome visitors to the emerging arboretum guy schofield one of our trustees manufactured and painted the sign which now graces the meadow and the entrance to the arboretum
the mayor of havant councillor rosie raines visited the site on saturday 24th June where she made a short speech of welcome, then she unveiled the sign by removing the union Jack with “three cheers” from those in attendance we are hugely indebted to the emsworth residents forum who sponsored the creation and manufacture of this beautiful sign.
work goes on to select and purchase 60+ trees that will be planted in the coming autumn.a provisional date of 2nd december has been agreed and by then we
will have planted about 150 small trees that with care and attention, will flourish in the coming years.we invite you to consider attending this important occasion, where you can be assured of a warm welcome our website wwwevma org uk will,nearer the time,give full details of this planting
the six acre site of the arboretum sits almost in the middle of the meadow, so currently donors and visitors with walking disabilities may find access difficult.
in order to overcome this, we plan to build a durable accessible path from the car park to the beginning of the arboretum.we are currently in discussions with havant Borough council as to how best this can be achieved to allow access for all to the whole of the 42 acres of this wonderful community open space
the emsvalley memorial arboretum is a unique community project. it is a place where loved ones will be remembered and
celebrated for posterity, whilst enhancing the local environment.we would be delighted to encourage and help other villages and communities in the borough

performers from abstract dance and performing arts, hmsyoungstars and hayling college performed to a packed audience outside we had many others including the plant sales, the tombola, vintage cars, cycling and sports activities and even an engine from the hayling fire service
despite the unseasonal weather which has been causing problems in the garden, there is still plenty to do and the rainfall has certainly helped our garden plants to thrive (and the weeds!). if you have been establishing a meadow or meadow area in your garden, september and october are the time to give them a final cut before winter leave the clippings to lie on the ground for a couple of days to allow the wildflower seeds to drop and replenish the meadow for next year
Birds will now have finished nesting so hedge trimming can resume if possible leave piles of branches, twigs and leaves to encourage insects and offer shelter to small mammals.
in october you can start to think about planting your spring bulbs, although leave planting out your tulip bulbs until november plant bulbs at 2-3 times their depth and they look best in groups of around 6 to create the best display

St Faiths Flower Festival
as i walked the short path into st. faith’s church, past the milk churns filled with dainty local flowers and the bicycle basket likewise filled with colourful blossoms, i had a hint of how fantastic the festival was going to be from the simplicity of the totally ecologically sustainable display from st. James and st. mary’s, fishbourne, to the exotic and splendid stands, every corner of the church was filled with thoughtful and thought-provoking arrays. it was not just the exhibits but how they were curated that made the festival splendid.
flowers are especially beautiful gifts of creation.when we notice flowers, they cut through our consciousness and confront us
New Lions Club President
By grainne Bradley rason
with the wonders of nature flowers make us stop and leave the business of the day, if just for a second.
this festival strove to raise its environmental credentials.the flowers and greenery were seasonal so fewer airmiles whilst also supporting local businesses. outside, in st. faith’s cemetery there are wildflowers, birds and insects, giving back space to nature
it was my honour and privilege to open the festival as havant’s green councillor but the real honour and thanks must go to st. faith’s church and community who so tirelessly worked to give us this outstanding festival – our very own ‘chelsea show’.
at the June handover dinner , havant lions president howard sherlock handed over the 2023-2024 presidency to lion gordon rhodes.
gordon who is a retired Banker, has been a member of lions clubs all over the world from the cayman islands to guernsey and has been a havant lion for over 20 years. he has also held senior positions at both club and district level in the uk.
one of his major passions is classic cars and he can be regularly seen at the goodwood shows.
gordon knows that havant lions will be busy fundraising for the rest of this year, starting with their popular Bottle stall at the emsworth show in on august Bank
holiday they are planning a day of psa testing for any male members of the public on 18 november in central havant. work is also beginning for the very popular santa’s sleigh in the local areas in december they finish the year with a bucket collection at the havant tesco it must be remembered that all monies raised are put back into the community havant lions cover the havant, emsworth and waterlooville areas and are always ready to welcome prospective members. should anyone feel that they would like to join in and have fun whilst raising money for good local causes, please email ; firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com

Don’t stop Wining
The Use of Oak in Wine
Jonathan looks at this age old practice.
By Jonathan rogers ofvin wine merchants
around fifteen or so years ago, wines with heavy oak ageing were all the rage, and us consumers were loving them. it seemed to be a fashionable thing, to drink wines that had been fermented or aged in oak, drinking prosecco or pinot grigio is now
the use of oak in wine making has been around for at least tw first coming into pr romans.they first used oak bar transportation but it soon became clear to them the various diff to the wine often making it taste better today wine mak various properties of wine colour and taste
the wine include vanilla and tannin. although tannin is not an actual fla of wine, it can be attributed to the sense of touch, on your tongue and the inside of y cheeks.tannin will giv making them fuller although this can sometimes be hidden by the sweeter flavours oak also gives to the wine it will round off the acidity levels creating a softer wine with more depth.
during the 60’s the famous californian producer robert mondavi experimented more with oak and more winemakers began to follow his examples. heavily oaked chardonnay began to pour out of california during the subsequent decades and this is what we were all enjoying during the nineties.
the majority of the wine producing world use oak, more so in regions such as rioja in spain where it is law labels with the term ‘reserva’ or gran ‘reserva’ will indicate oak ageing in both red and whites and the length of time the wine stays inside the barrels can be anything up to 12 months and beyond in some regions.
nowadays it seems that the crisper whites with more acidity are in favour with sauvignon Blanc, particularly from new Zealand, the grape of the moment. only certain white grapes benefit from oak, for example chardonnay, and sauvignon Blanc is not one of them. our tastes do change and it seems that at
the moment the vanilla, creamy whites are out of favour having said that, they are still amazing wines.
here are a few examples to try:
character with hints of spice and wood on the finish.
wild venison is back in season, and with the deer numbers at historically high levels, it’s important to eat venison to keep their population healthy and help woodland to regenerate wild venison is also the healthiest red meat for you, is sourced from the south downs, and is sustainable we get our venison from the stansted estate and we offer every cut from our butchery counter when it is in season. this recipe uses haunch, but you could use venison loin, and is a great alternative to roast beef rump or topside
Ingredients: wildvenison (serves 4)
• 750g venison haunch
• 3 cloves crushed garlic
• 2 sprigs rosemary
• butter and oil
• salt and pepper
• 250 grams butter
2 drizzle some oil over the meat, cover with tinfoil and place in the oven for 45 minutes.
3 remove from the oven around 20 minutes before serving. melt a knob of butter in a heavy pan and add a tablespoon of olive oil.
4 when sizzling hot, add the rump and sear for approximately 10 minutes until nicely browned all over remove from the pan and leave to rest for 10-15 minutes.
5 when ready to serve, slice the venison rump into ½ to 2centimetre- thick slices.
6 serve with mash or roast potatoes and your favourite sides with a good helping of gravy
For the mash
1 place the potatoes in the oven at 150°c for around 1 hour until soft inside
a blend of corvina and merlot.the grapes are picked and dried in the sun which reduces the water content producing a richer smooth red. its aged in oak for several months.

• 250 ml double cream

1 heat the oven to 130-140°c, season the venison rump with plenty of salt and pepper place in a roasting dish with the garlic and rosemary
2 add the butter and cream to a pan and simmer while stirring until thickened. season with the salt and white pepper
3 take the baked potatoes out and cut into halves. spoon the inside of the potatoes into a ricer/sieve and push through to ensure a silky smooth consistency
4 put the potato mash into the emulsion on the lowest possible heat and gently fold using a rubber spatula until the potato has absorbed all the emulsion and is silky smooth

THE CAT & RABBIT RESCUE CENTRE
hello from your favourite out and about reporter at the cat and rabbit rescue centre, hulky Bear our last pet of the month the gorgeous female cat misty is sadly still waiting to find her forever home misty has been through so much in the first year of her life and she is such a sweet girl, i really hope she finds a home soon.
Holborow Lodge, Chalder Lane, Sidlesham, W. Sussex PO20 7RJ
in this article, i would like to tell you about a very cute group of 5 week old kittens who arrived with us a few weeks ago these four female kittens were saved in the nick of time after the shed they had been living in was about to be destroyed. there was unfortunately no sign of their mum so the kittens were rushed to the centre to check for signs of dehydration and malnourishment. luckily, all the kittens were in good health but my staff could tell
Asset Protection Trust – why?
There are many organisations selling Asset ProtectionTrusts, usually suggesting they are a means to protect the house from having to be sold to fund care home fees.
many of these schemes mean that you take your name off the deeds to the house and the house is then owned by a discretionary trust.
with the emphasis being on saving on care home fees the impact of inheritance tax is often forgotten.
if you own your own home at the date of your death and you leave it to your children then as well as your usual nil rate band that passes inheritancetax free (currently £325,000 if you have not made any lifetime gifts) a further £175,000 can
also pass inheritancetax free this is known as the residence nil rate band however, if the property is owned by atrust at the date of your death this additional £175,000 tax free allowance is not available if you are given a glossy presentation and think that paying large fees to use atrust with what looks like a promise to save money from being spent on care home fees to protect your children’s inheritance then please take care before you sign up at Belcher addison we have experienced solicitors who deal with all aspects of inheritance tax planning and are also well versed in the rules surrounding the liability to fund care and will be able to give you professional and unbiased advice
straight away that they were feral and had probably never had any contact with humans. once they arrived, they spent most of their time hiding away and showing my staff their little hisses.
over the years,the centre has dealt with hundreds of feral cats and luckily, my staff were well prepared. my staff and volunteers will now be making sure to spend lots of time with them to try and rehabilitate them in hopes they will learn that the humans are not so bad.at five weeks old kittens are just starting to develop their personalities so we are very hopeful they will come round.after only a
PET OFTHE MONTH Huffkin & Panini
this month we would love to introduce you to a very sweet pair of male guinea pigs called huffkin who is grey and white and his brother panini who is white.these boys are 2 years old and have been with us since June as their owner no longer had enough time for them.they are a curious pair of guinea pigs who can be a little speedy when you try to catch them but once you have them on your lap they do really enjoy their strokes.they both love their food and as soon as they know you’re coming they will squeak away in excitement.these two boys could happily live with calm children.
few weeks with us, they are already making improvements, although they still hiss a bit they are now letting my staff stroke them. the kittens will now stay with us until they are twelve weeks old and have been spayed. in the next four weeks we hope they will improve even more so that they will be able to find forever homes quickly. i am sure that once in a loving home they will blossom into lovely, friendly cats. i am so glad that we were able to save these kittens from a life on the street! love hulky visit: www.crrc.co.uk and our facebook page for all the latest news and info

Do you have Full or Partial dentures or suffer from missing teeth?
implant surgery is a big decision, choosing amir to carry out the procedure was not. he and his team have always demonstrated the utmost professionalism and care, before, during and after my operations. following a serious motor cycle accident as a very young man, i have had much reconstructive work over the years and, quite simply put,amir stands out as the best dental surgeon i have ever had. Bl
“…well words can not suffice to recommend amir on the end results of my implants .over the whole procedure he explained the whole treatment plan and how long it was going to take the quality and care you receive from amir and his team is first class. now i have the perfect smile again.thank you amir and your team.
amir took me on as a 90 year old patient with five teeth and with a couple of ancient ill-fitting dentures.
eating had become an uncomfortable and miserable process eventually amir advised the use of implants which were painlessly fitted and after several months of endless care and patience he produced a perfect fit for the new teeth.
the transformation has been amazing as i can now again enjoy the simple pleasures of crunching an apple or chewing beefsteak. if you are recommended implants, struggle with the cost and go for it, you will never regret it, and you may be sure that amir will look after you very well” eric p
“it’s been five years since having my implants.i’m over the moon with the results as i can now eat and smile without the worry of wearing a denture”
“absolutely delighted with my crowns you've made me smile again thank you so much!”
“…dentist and team did a really good job on my chipped tooth. made me feel relaxed and welcome highly recommended!”
“…i had two implants done on the same day! no pain, just great looking teeth!”
“…at first i was very unsure, despite my denture becoming very tiresome, but i gradually gained confidence after speaking to amir, and eventually had implants. i’ve had no problems and said goodbye to the denture”
“i had a loose very poor fitting lower denture which i couldn't eat with i was told that i could have implants clipped on to a new denture i couldn't believe how straight forward the procedure was no pain at all i can now eat,smile and talk”
“ after seeking recommendations, i made a decision to go to amir for my implants they healed wonderfully, and the colour match is perfect. no one knows i have them”
