We offer 7 advert sizes across 9 booklets with 3 different booking periods & a choice of over 50 distribution quantities. This flexibility gives customers the widest choice of advertising options in the region relative to their business size, type & budget. That level of choice does mean that with so many options available it is impossible to produce a standard rate card, therefore all enquiries are priced depending on the size & frequency of advert & the number of areas required. We do publish sample costs based on a single advert, single area booking as a guide but this does not reflect the significant savings available on multi-area bookings. For a bespoke quote based on your advertising requirements simply email or call.

emmersons solicitors 0191 284 6989 145 High Street Gosforth

(Helen Taylor)

emmersons-solicitors.co.uk probate • court of protection • divorce conveyancing • business leases • motoring offences

emmersons solicitors If you haven't made your will yet, here are some good reasons for doing so; • Many people now cohabit instead of marrying, including same sex couples. They think that they will be provided for if their partner dies. Without a will your next of kin may inherit everything instead of your partner. • Do you have children from more than one relationship? If so you will need to specify how much of your estate they are to inherit and why.  At Emmersons we have designed a comprehensive questionnaire covering a range of issues that you should consider when making a will. We can also advise on the best way to reduce the potential for care home fees. Our aim is to ensure that your wishes are carried out without anyone being able to challenge your will. It could cost thousands of pounds and a lot of heartache if a will is challenged.   We also deal with Powers of Attorney and Contested Estates. Home visits are often available.

Something new has arrived in North Gosforth I’m Christopher Fox, owner & creative director of Christopher Fox Unisex Salon. My passion is hair it’s what I get up for in the morning & why I’m still styling hair late at night. With years of experience working with and trained by the Saks Art Team at their Award Winning Training Academy. I then joined a Paul Mitchell Signature Salon where I instantly fell in love with their beautiful products & professional colour range all eco-friendly & free from animal testing. That’s why I use Paul Mitchell exclusively.

So I’ve designed a Salon Menu offering you cut, colour, wash house and blow out menus, choices every step of the way. Everyone is an individual, I believe in bespoke hair cutting and colouring, not the same basic cut & blow-dry on everyone who walks through the door. The Salon is like my home so I treat my clients as guests offering a personable unique salon experience in elegant surroundings & delivering styles that work for you day & night.

Welcome to Christopher Fox.

Now I’ve finally took the plunge and gone it alone, opening the first Paul Mitchell Signature Salon in Gosforth. Paul Mitchell is about providing affordable luxury and that’s exactly what I do. I offer more choice, and involve you in the whole creative process.

Introductory Offers 25% off all services for November & December

Christmas Gift Vouchers & Beautifully Packaged Paul Mitchell Gift Sets Re-Book Rewards

We’ll always reward you with 10% off your next salon visit every time you rebook before you leave. Not sure of your plans or need to change? No problem just give us 48 hours notice & you’ll keep your 10% off.

Paul Mitchell Colour Bar • Special rates for NHS, SAGE, Students & Over 65s • Loyalty Scheme • Ample free parking • Finesse Beauty within our salon 5b Elmwood Avenue North Gosforth Newcastle upon Tyne NE13 6PX

CHRISTMAS - IT’S A CRACKER BY ADVERTISERS RON CLARKE INDEX OF

RIGHT UP YOUR STREET

CHRISTMAS - IT’S A CRACKER! You know you love it really. Many of our festive traditions may be a thing of the past but this is one that still remains as strong as ever. Yes, we may no longer get candlelit carol singers at the door or chestnuts roasting on an open fire but we still like to pull a cracker.You see, I have started already. For some reason, come Christmas Day, we all like to descend into adolescent humour once again and groan at all those really bad jokes. Maybe putting the customary paper hats on our heads starts it all. It is the signal to take it in turns to tell the ones we have all heard before. Who cares? They always raise a laugh. Go on, the old ones are the best: • • • •

What happens when you eat too many Christmas decorations? You gettinsel-itis What is furry and minty? A polo bear What hides in a bakery at Christmas? A mince spy What sort pizza does King Wenceslas like? Deep, pan, crisp and even.

See, you are laughing already and that is just the start. The best is yet to come. All those mind-boggling gifts that fall from the cracker. Just what we probably never wanted and will never ever use. The awesome array normally includes everything from tiny tape measures and photo-frames the size of a postage stamp to miniscule screwdrivers and little combs. We still swap them round like some kind of scramble at a car boot sale while muttering “oh yes, that will come in handy, don’t mind 28

having that if you don’t want it” and all before we have pulled the turkey apart. Then, long after Christmas Day has been and gone, you still go round the house finding bits of torn hats and discarded cracker gifts in the most unexpected places. Behind the sofa, top of the stairs and other random locations. They have been around for at least 150 years. Devised by an enterprising English confectioner who wanted to boost the sale of his sweets. It is now a huge industry and still an integral interval in our festivities. Go on, just a couple more then: • How do snowmen get around? They ride an icicle • What is tall and wobbly and stands in the middle of Paris ? The trifle tower Happy Christmas.

LEGAL MATTERS INDEX OF ADVERTISERS

RIGHT UP YOUR STREET

We’ve just separated, how are we going to afford to live? When couples separate they can often afford to cope in the short term by living off credit cards or using their savings. If one party feels that they are not to blame for the end of the relationship, eg. because their partner has been having an affair, then they are unlikely to agree immediately to a reduction in their household income. Why should they have fewer holidays or fewer nights out and why should their home have to be sold? Emmersons family law solicitors deal with this scenario on a daily basis. We always try to deal with the emergency issues first. For example when can each parent see the children and will the mortgage be paid next month? Things do change throughout the legal process. A person who may have been in a state of utter shock or have been consumed with anger will start to move on and see things in more practical terms after the initial separation. The reality of the cost of running two homes starts to sink in. So how can you make ends meet in the medium term? If your mortgage is being paid on a repayment basis then you could both approach your lender to see if this can be converted to an interest only mortgage. This can often release much needed funds. Then look at luxury items. Do you need to have your dustbin cleaned out? Do you need all of the sports channels on Sky? 32

Collaborative Family Lawyer

Do you need lots of little insurance policies for all of your electrical items? You should make sure that you contact your council tax department if you are now the only adult living in the house.You will be entitled to a 25% discount.You should attend to this as soon as your partner leaves the house. You may also be entitled to council tax benefit if your household income has dropped.You may be entitled to child tax credit or working tax credit and you may be entitled to help with nursery fees. We offer Collaborative Family Law at Emmersons Solicitors. (See emmersons-solicitors. co.uk, family law) As part of this process the two of you can reach agreement about sharing your incomes in a fair manner until the matrimonial home is sold. Or the property could be re-mortgaged by one party in order to buy out the other’s share. In any event you should each prepare a list of your financial needs, rather than your wants at this stage. If your lists are reasonable it may be possible, using the Collaborative process, to reach a medium term agreement that will work for all of the family.
