Protecting Your Family’s Inheritance Most people hope that their estate will pass on to their children and grandchildren eventually. But this will not happen for many, unless careful arrangements have been made to protect their assets from being taken towards the end of their life to pay for care home fees. The solution to help protect your estate is a Will incorporating a Property Protection Trust (PPT). A testamentary PPT can only be executed whilst both partners remain alive. Upon death of the first partner, their Will specifies that their share of the property is placed into trust and names the ultimate beneficiary of this share, normally the children and grandchildren of the deceased. The surviving partner, under the terms of the Trust, has the unequivocal right to remain living in the property for the rest of their life.

inheritance is protected. This last point can be of particular interest to couples who have come together and have children from different partners. A PPT can help each person in a relationship ensure that their children inherit their share of the property, while giving their surviving partner the ability to live in the property for the rest of their life. If the surviving partner wants to move to another property, they can still sell the property and the proceeds be used to purchase a new property; the terms of the Trust remain over the new property.

Kornerstone Legal services will On the death of the second partner the Trust comes to an end assess your current circumstances and the property passes to the beneficiaries. As the surviving and arrange the trust that will provide partner does not own the deceased’s share of the property it is the best protection for you, your fully protected for the beneficiaries, so if the surviving partner family and your assets.

Eden Tyres & Servicing Family run firm Eden Tyres & Servicing’s Hinckley branch has been open just over a year and has already got a following of loyal, regular customers in the area. The company, which initially opened back in 1981 with a single branch in Derby, has gone from strength to strength in recent years and now encompasses 17 branches across the East Midlands, 5 of which are in the Leicestershire region. The ETS team put their success down to a strong focus on customer service and honest advice, things that the automotive industry isn’t always best known for and focus on providing customers with very high standards of service at great value prices. ‘Many of our customers come to us after us being recommended by family and friends. We get numerous comments about how refreshing our approach to auto care is and how comfortable customers feel when visiting one of our branches’ said Jim Nicholls, ETS operations manager. ‘We train our staff to focus on advising customers as they would their own friends and family as our aim is for them to use our services for years. We understand many customers are reluctant to visit garages due to the fear of being over-sold to and so focus on only providing genuine, honest advice and making each visit straightforward and hassle free. This transparent approach has worked for nearly 40 years and we now have nearly 5000 customer reviews on TrustPilot which rate out service as ‘Excellent’ with an average score of 9.8 out of 10. We AUGUST / SEPTEMBER 2019 EDITION

want happy customers to continue to be our very best advert! The ETS Hinckley branch offers the full range of automotive services including tyres, MOT’s, Servicing & repairs. Conveniently situated behind McDonalds on Wheatfield Way it has plenty of onsite parking and a free courtesy car for customers who need to get on with their day. It was refurbished prior to opening and so has newly equipped, modern workshops and a clean, comfortable reception area which has free wi-fi, drinks, newspapers and magazines.

The Eden Tyres & Servicing team are also very proud of the fact that nearly 50% of their customers are women. They constantly strive to make their branches welcoming for everyone and so are planning to run a ladies car maintenance workshop at the Hinckley branch in September. ‘We’ve run similar workshops in the past and they’ve been a huge success with everyone enjoying the night and learning a great deal too. There are goody bags for all the ladies along with tasty refreshments! We look at how to check oil and fluid levels in your car, check your tyres are safe and inflated and what to do in a tyre emergency’ The workshop will take place on Thursday 26th September at 7pm at the branch on Wheatfield Way. There are limited places so if you’re interested in attending please Call Joanna on 07793 122013 or email joanna@edentyres.co.uk

Could you change a child’s life in 2020? We’re looking for volunteer host families who can offer a stable, loving temporary home for children whose lives are still affected by the Chernobyl nuclear disaster. Friends of Chernobyl’s Children (West Leicestershire) is a registered charity that supports Belarusian children from disadvantaged social backgrounds who are still affected by the Chernobyl disaster. Every year we bring children from the most badly affected parts of Belarus to the UK for a month of recuperative care. During the visit, the children stay with a host family and undertake a programme of organised activities that gives them plenty of fresh air, friendship, essential health checks and above all the fun they so desperately need. We’re on the lookout for enthusiastic, committed families who can provide a stable, loving home for a vulnerable child that will be placed in their care for four weeks. Host families will need to have their own transport and ideally live within 30 minutes of the charity’s day centre, which is currently in Markfield.

John Buckby, Group Co-ordinator for Friends of Chernobyl’s Children (West Leics) said: “Hosting a child is an incredibly rewarding experience and these visits do really change the lives of the children and the host families and volunteers that support them. “The next visit is planned for the summer of 2020 but there is lots of organising before then, so it’s vital that we have host families in place by September 2019 to ensure we can commit to bringing these children, so desperately in need of our help, over to the UK.” If you think you can help, either as a host family or as a volunteer supporting the visits you can find more information on our website www.focc-westleics.org.uk or get in touch with our Group Co-ordinator, John Buckby, on 01455 285799 / 07738 324947 or by email at john.evolution@btinternet.com.

Animal Aid

To help explain the vital work of Leicester Animal Aid, a local animator and designer has created a short film which features one of its former residents. Shantelle wanted to combine her love of animals with her passion for animation and offered her expertise free of charge to LAA. She has brought to life the story of Bertie, a 14-year-old miniature poodle, to illustrate what a difference the generosity of supporters and members make to the Charity.

Bertie

The film shows Bertie as a puppy with his Mum and Dad and follows him enjoying life as he grows up. As he gets older he has a few health problems including a heart condition but he is well-looked after and still loves his walks. Sadly Bertie’s circumstances change when his beloved owners pass away and he has nowhere to go. That’s where Leicester Animal Aid step in and give him the love and care he deserves until a new forever home can be found. Bertie also shows us how easy it is to become a member of LAA and how it helps us to continue the vital work we do helping dogs and cats who have been lost, abandoned, neglected or because their owners can no longer look after them. The animation shows that, although Bertie lives with his new family, he is still supported by his LAA family through the Medical Foster Scheme. Watch the film on LAA’s website and Youtube channel

Martin & Co Hinckley Office 99-109 Castle Street, Hinckley, Leics, LE10 1DA 01455 636349 | hinckley@martinco.com

The latest news from within the housing industry is that the amount of unshifted stock within Estate Agents has grown. Plummeting new instructions and dipping sales mean that agents have the highest amount of unsold stock on their hands for four years. According to a Rightmove report, sales agreed are down 4.6% compared with this time a year ago, while new listings have fallen 7.8% on last July. Time to get a property under offer has also lengthened, to 62 days, the longest at this time of year since 2013. The price of property coming to market has edged only very slightly downwards, just 0.2%, and these cuts were led by drops in the listing price of larger “top-of-the-ladder” homes, which fell by 1.1% on a monthly basis and 0.7% annually. Miles Shipside, director of Rightmove, said: “Growing numbers of properties on agents’ books, even though fewer properties are coming up for sale, are evidence of a more challenging market.” “Buyers are in the driving seat – but could be looking “for too cheap a ride on the back of Brexit uncertainty”. We’ve certainly felt the effect locally, with buyers holding off “until Brexit has sorted itself out” (which frustratingly we are hearing quite a lot of). Confidence has hit the property market, but people still need to move for whatever reason. If the “crashists” are expecting a fall in prices akin to the last recession, then I think they’ll be disappointed. Prices will remain the same because sellers just won’t move. The banks are currently lending with historic low interest rates which is the opposite to the 2009 recession. The time to buy is now. Demand from tenants looking for a new place is normally muted during the Summer. However, it rose 7% between May and June, compared with the previous four-year average of just 1%. Some properties were let in May, but June was the busiest month this year for applications because of the implementation of the tenant fee ban. Rents are rising due to many factors including the high demand, shortage of properties, extra costs placed on Landlords and the reduction to a five-week deposit. If a tenant has a pet, then the deposit can no longer be increased and must be added to the rent. Selling your home can be an exciting time, but what can you do to help secure that offer? Declutter, but don’t de-personalise. Create a viewing box to put ornaments in. Clear the window sills, the top of the TV and mantlepiece. Reduce the number of pictures on the walls. Decorate. Give your home a fresh lick of paint and painting it in a neutral colour will ensure rooms look bright and larger. It’ll also help potentials buyers move in and use the rooms immediately. Fix and clean. Get those small jobs done. Clean the shower tray and remove black limescale at the back of the taps. Tidy the garden. This will help your home feel more appealing and allow viewers to imagine living there. Light. Wall mirrors make rooms look larger, especially in hallways. Clean the windows inside and out. Have lamps on in dark corners. Light a fire: If it’s a cold evening, get the open fire going. How welcoming is that? Get the right smells. Bad smells are the biggest turn off for buyers, so open the windows and air the house. Good smells help tremendously such as the smell of fresh coffee. Viewings. If you’re showing buyers around your home, be positive! Highlight that new boiler, the built-in kitchen appliances and new windows. Don’t mention anything that you’re not qualified in such as “it might need rewiring” or “there may have been subsidence”. If you don’t know for sure, don’t say anything and let the professionals decide. AUGUST / SEPTEMBER 2019 EDITION

St Mary’s Christmas Tree Festival This year sees the 9th annual St Mary’s Christmas Tree Festival. Each year the 4 day event attracts more visitors and from further afield. We are very proud to receive over 2000 visitors, including tour buses and local groups. The viewing of lit Christmas trees on display filling this beautiful church in the centre of Hinckley is not to be missed. To help make this year’s festival equally successful and hopefully even bigger and better, we welcome anyone interested in displaying a tree, sponsors for the events, ideas for new events and advertisers to support our Festival magazine. A bigger event with more trees will provide a higher profile for you when you exhibit a tree, sponsor an event or provide a raffle prize. You have free reign on how you decorate your tree and how much you want it to represent your business, community group, activity, school or family. Money raised throughout the festival will go towards the renovation and on-going maintenance of the church and raffle tickets will be available throughout the festival. We at Roundabout Hinckley and Roundabout the Villages are delighted to be designing and producing the Christmas Tree Festival Programme for the fifth year running and sponsoring the launch event on Thursday November 28th. If you are interested in sponsoring or advertising, please get in touch with Debbie at Roundabout Hinckley debbie@roundabouthinckley.co.uk by the 15th September. If you would like to display a tree (or have any queries about the festival) please register your interest by emailing office@stmaryshinckley.co.uk to request a form. These will be issued in October. The Festival launches on Thursday 28th November at 6:30pm and the lights will be turned on at 7pm. There will be music and entertainment from the church’s choirs and band and refreshments available to purchase. The church will be open for viewing and voting, refreshments and a children’s trail on Friday, Saturday and Monday from 10am until 4pm and Sunday from 12 noon until 4pm. Donations are requested for entry and the programme.

AUGUST / SEPTEMBER 2019 EDITION

On Friday 29th 7pm until 9.30pm, we are thrilled to announce that Amore Vineyards and Winery will be hosting a winetasting with accompanying nibbles amongst the lit trees. This is a ticket only event. On Saturday 30th November, 7pm until 8.30pm, The Drama Academy will once more be entertaining us with a wide programme of song, dance and drama. Tickets will be available on the door. More events are being planned over the festival period, so connect with StMarysHinckley on Facebook for further details. Tickets will be on sale in October from St Mary’s church coffee bar. Raffle prizes can be dropped off at the church coffee bar, please mark them for the festival and make sure you label them stating who the donation is from. As a build up to Christmas, we have Tamsin Grant Reason singing in St Mary’s church on Wednesday 4th December. Tickets will be available from the coffee bar. Always immensely popular, this is an evening of entertainment not to be missed.

Women that Connect Women that Connect is a professional women’s business networking group approaching its third birthday. It is an exclusive membership group meaning only one member per profession/industry is invited to join resulting in the group having an excellent, diverse mix of businesses. It has recently increased to 40 members. Every month each member speaks about their business followed by a 2-course lunch and drink. This is followed by a presentation by one of the members giving more details about their business. At our July meeting, one of our new members, Mairi Taylor owner of FAB Fitness, stepped in at the last minute and gave an interesting and informative talk on using Essential Oils. Mairi gave a fabulous presentation and her knowledge and passion shone through. She did herself proud particularly stepping in at the 11th hour. After the speaker, there is usually a forum where members discuss an issue they may be experiencing in their businesses. We have previously covered such subjects as Cyber Security and Cyber Crime, Apprenticeships, Debt

Recovery ideas and Best Client Database Systems. With our meeting format, members Lunch and Learn. The group is all about providing support and guidance for fellow members. A happy by-product from the group is the many lasting friendships that have formed. Guests are welcome to attend a maximum of two meetings a year if there is no clash with a business who is already a member of the group. If you are interested in joining this successful and popular group, please contact Debbie of Roundabout Hinckley on 07751 211019 or emaildebbie@roundabouthinckley.co.uk for further information and to see if the business slot is available.

Isla Smiler #islastones So many people in Hinckley and indeed worldwide, were left touched and affected by the sad news that Isla Tansey, known as Isla Smiler, left us last year on 10th July. For anyone who doesn’t know, 7 year old Isla woke up two years ago unable to walk and after many horrible treatments, surgery and radiotherapy was diagnosed as having a rare brain tumour, a diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma DIPG, for which there were no further treatment options. DIPG has a 0% survival rate, only 10% of children survive 2 years following their diagnosis and less than 1% survive for 5 years, the average survival is 9 months from diagnosis. Isla and her incredibly strong family made the most of their time together making lots of precious memories. Isla started to decorate stones and gave them to her friends to hide. Very quickly her Facebook group grew as it caught everyone’s imagination, as people all over the world began painting and hiding stones. Stones have been hidden across the world including at the Taj Mahal, Canada, New Zealand and a very special stone in Antarctica! Isla chose weekly themes for her stones. She chose some fabulous themes such as Pets, Star Wars, Unicorns and Teddies. Isla really loved seeing all the posts on Facebook of people posing with their painted stones before hiding them. Isla’s Facebook page #islastones, has over 72,000 members from all around the world who are continuing to decorate and hide their stones. One of Isla’s dreams was to be famous, she certainly achieved that becoming famous with children and adults searching and posting pictures of themselves with their stones. As many have said, it has been great that children particularly have been struck by the idea of painting and hiding the stones and looking for hidden stones. As a result, it has taken them away from computer games and their mobile phones and encouraged them to be outside more and this is still the case over a year later.

AUGUST / SEPTEMBER 2019 EDITION

Since Isla left us there has been a 2 week long tribute at the bandstand in Argent’s Mead last year and there were thousands of painted stones followed by an exhibition held at The Atkins Building. There is now also the permanent memorial in Argents Mead. Then there was the Guinness World Record attempt for the number of painted stones held in Argents mead this year on Saturday 13th July, 2019. The current record stands at 3646 and the hope was to have 4000+, however astonishingly over 8000 painted stones were brought along on the day and the wait is on for the official verification. A fantastic £2,544 was also raised on the day which will go towards the £73,000 the family are raising, through a variety of ongoing fundraising events, to fund a dedicated Isla Smiler DIPG Trials Researcher. Isla’s parents, Katherine and Simon, were recently presented with the prestigious national award of the Best Social and Community Contribution Award as recognition of how their campaign has brought the whole community together. They were nominated for the award by Hinckley and Bosworth Borough Council. The award was presented to them at a gala dinner in London on 26th June and this has been a remarkable few weeks remembering Isla.

Katherine and Simon Tansey and on the left Jon Coward, Hinckley & Bosworth Borough Council

At all times Isla’s wonderful family, her parents Katherine and Simon along with her brother Harrison, have been so dignified and have been happy to share their private thoughts. There is no doubt that Isla’s legacy continues to live on, and we really believe she will never be forgotten. You can follow #Islastones on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

Burbage Crusaders Bowling Club Charity Day On 30th June 2019 Burbage Crusaders Bowling Club held its annual charity day. The club nominates a charity each year but for several years now The Sketchley Hill Menphys Nursery School has been the chosen charity. This is a local school for children with disability and this year the event raised £460 for the school thanks to the generosity of those taking part.

Players assemble before the start of play

The day is organised primarily as a fun day and in the words of President George Dillon “Having fun is compulsory”. Entries were in teams of 4 from the Crusaders and invited clubs and each team played 4 short games against other teams and the team with the highest number of points at the end of the day won the Dave Moore Memorial Cup. This year there were 10 teams playing and for the first time since 2012 a home team from the Crusaders won the cup. The Crusaders are always keen to welcome new members. Most of our games are ‘Friendlies’ where the object of the exercise is to have fun amongst friends. The sport of bowling is very accessible as you don’t need high fitness levels and the equipment needed can be obtained quite cheaply.

Craig Adams, Voluntary Assistant Station Manager The Pathways Computer Club, The Pathways Centre, Hinckley Baptist Church The aim of the Pathways Computer Club is to provide support to anyone within our community who feel they need to enhance their IT skills. This can range from a pure novice who has no IT skills up to someone who wants to improve their IT skills further. The Pathways Computer Club started back in 2009 with five computers and 15 students and at its height we had around fifty students attending on a regular basis. Most students nowadays bring their own laptops or tablets, but some students still prefer to use the Desktop computers we have. The lessons take place on a Thursday morning and last for one hour and every student is allocated a specific time on the Thursday morning, no lesson has more than 8 students and we try to offer an almost one to one teaching experience. Term times tend to follow the same term times as the local schools, giving us roughly 10 lessons per Term. A term costs £35 per term and we are flexible in how students pay this. We try to satisfy most people’s interests and the most popular subjects covered are Ancestry - Family Tree, Photo editing,

The mother of two, living in Burbage, is undergoing intense treatment for cancer, and will soon be recovering from a major operation. As a single mum, she was worried she wouldn’t be able to look after her children over the summer holidays. That’s when Premier Education decided to step in. Premier Education have offered to enrol both of her children on their summer camps free of charge, effectively providing an all-day childcare alternative. Sam Carline, Regional Director of Premier Education said “We’re not a charity, but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t help out when we can. We are grateful that this situation was brought to our attention so we can help out in our own way.” The mother, who wished to remain anonymous, said “It’s restored my faith in humankind and I’m eternally grateful for their support at this most difficult time. My kids will be with their other school friends too. It’s a huge weight off my shoulders.” The boys will enjoy a range of activities designed to build confidence and teamwork. Premier’s camps can include gymnastics, performing arts, archery, dodgeball, football, basketball and fencing. www.premier-education.com
