RIO OLYMPICS TRAIL

The Attleborough Fun Fest Team are tr ying to recreate the fun from last summer by putting on an Olympic Trail. or those of you who remember, we did a bike trail which was a huge success with over 150 people getting involved.This was so successful that we had people coming from other towns to take part in the trail and everyone said how great it was. We even made it onto Mustard TV twice for the trail!! To coincide with the Rio Olympics we have asked businesses to take part, with a minimum donation of £10.00. 100% of the monies raised will be going to two charities, Attleborough Scouts and Star Throwers in Wymondham.

F

How it will work is the businesses let us know they wish to take part and we then allocated them with a sport that is in the Olympics. They then have to recreate this either in there shop windows or around the town. It can be as big a display or small as they want it to be. The whole emphasis is fun and just getting our lovely town to join in. We will then be selling trail maps throughout the Summer Holidays for families to get involved as last

year and try and find all the Olympic sports that will be out and about. We will ask them to vote for their favourite display as well, and a prize will be given to the display with the most votes! The trail maps that get handed in will then be checked and the person who has found the most displays will also get a prize. We are then going to host an Olympic Fun Day at the Connaught Hall, Attleborough on Monday 29th August, 11-3, where there will be lovely

stalls to look around, and some fun events will be going on throughout the day. More details on this day will be announced nearer the date. The team are working really hard to keep the momentum of last years fun activities moving and appreciate everyone taking part and finding the time to do the displays. Without the support of the town and residents of Attleborough we wouldn’t be able to put on the trails and events.

WHAT DOES SUCCESS MEAN TO YOU?

If you want things to be different, YOU have to do it. Life doesn’t have a remote control, you have to change it! re you looking for a change? Looking for something different? Need more money? Want to take control of your life? Or perhaps you’re bored or broke?

A

If that sounds like you, and if you really want to create a better life for yourself and your family, I’d like to introduce you to a fantastic opportunity that you can work around your other commitments, like your current job or childcare etc. Just choose one of the following which is most important to you? • Extra income • Financial freedom • Get out of debt • More free time • Have your own business • Personal development • Help others • Early retirement

06 | Wymondham & Dereham

Now, just ask yourself these few questions, and be completely honest with yourself; Why did you pick that one? Why is that important to you? What are the consequences of not having that opportunity? And Why would that worry you?

Here’s an example of Residual Income; In 1998 my college spent 35 minutes showing a friend of his how this business works. Last month he got paid for that conversation for the 216th time for that 35 minute chat, 18 years ago. That’s Residual Income explained!

Do you fancy earning ‘Residual Income’ with my full help and support and the backing of a fast-growing FTSE 250 PLC, which provides the opportunity to build a substantial longterm “Residual Income” alongside your other commitments?

So… how soon can you spare 10 minutes so I can answer all the questions I know you’ll have, and explain how this award-winning and trusted company can help you achieve what you want?

Residual income is income that continues to be generated after the initial effort has been made. Compare this to what most people focus on earning: linear income, which is “oneshot” compensation or payment in the form of a fee, wage, commission or salary which is directly proportional to the number of hours invested in it - 40 hours of pay for 40 hours of work.

Remember this: “If you think it’s too good to be true, I still get paid. If you take a look and join me, we BOTH get paid. If you don’t join me, well I still get paid!” I can help you, but you have to take the next step, which is call or text me now: 07802 690589 or visit my website for more information: www.JonathanHorswell.co.uk

NORTH WYMONDHAM COMMUNITY CENTRE

An important resource at the heart of the North Wymondham community seeks support building that has been at the hear t of the Nor th Wymondham community for more than for ty years is getting a new lease of life, as a result of some hard work by a handful of dedicated local residents.

A

Nor th Wymondham Community Centre in Lime Tree Avenue, Wymondham, was home to Ladybirds pre-school until it closed at the end of last year. This resulted in a loss of income equivalent to almost half of the building’s £6500 annual r unning costs and effor ts are now being made to make up the cash shor tfall. The community owned and managed resource has been the focus for a wide range of activities, including Shuffleboard, 5th Wymondham Brownies, Wymondham Young Farmer s and Tai Chi.

www.DispatchMagazine.co.uk

However, the recent addition of a monthly (second Wednesday) Tea and Chat session for the over 50s has and one-off events, such as a Community Ar ts day (to coincide with the nationally promoted BBC Get Creative initiative), have helped to increase public awareness of this impor tant community resource. The hall was also the venue for a free Tea Par ty, arranged by the community centre volunteers, as par t of the town celebrations to mark the Queen’s 90th bir thday. The event was made possible by funding from South Norfolk Council and sponsorship from the nearby East of England Co-op store, Ragged Robin Florist and local confectionar y specialists, Strawberr y Delights. The launch of a new monthly first Saturday, 10.00am – 12 noon, Indoor Market by residents Norman and Helen

Illsley (who are also the driving force behind Tea and Chat) aims to raise funds for the hall and to encourage more people to step inside the “Tardis”, so called because it is bigger inside than the frontage suggests. A spokesperson for Nor th Wymondham Community Centre said: “Many people probably think that the community centre is a local authority maintained facility but the responsibility for its upkeep rests entirely with three trustees, suppor ted by a small volunteer Committee. Now the hard working team would like more residents to get involved with the building, to share the workload.” If you would like to join the volunteer suppor t team or if you would like to book the hall for your fundraising events or family par ty, text 07498 277656, with your name and contact details.

SOUND SLEEP

Silentnight Sleep Centre is now open in store. ilentnight have selected us to become the latest bed store to gain the prestigious title of Silentnight Sleep Centre. We are one of only 13 Sleep Centres in the UK and will be the only store in Norfolk and Suffolk to feature the brand new and exclusive Platinum Collection. This collection consists of three different types of mattress support systems, Miracoil – Silentnight’s zoned coil spring system, Mirapocket – Silentnight’s zoned pocket spring system and the brand new Miraform – Silentnight’s unique spring free zoned foam

S

it’s range of products which now includes a brand new range for the retail market simply called the Hilary Devey Collection. The mattresses feature nested pocket springs, the most luxurious of natural fillings including wool, silk and cashmere, all finished with the finest damask covers and glamorous divan base covers and headboard designs. The three models that we are showcasing look absolutely stunning and feel amazing, so amazing that the price tag could easily be double. Come and try these brand new models in store today.

“ Remember, if you are waking up with a bad back or you don’t feel refreshed in the morning, it could well be your mattress is past it’s best” support system. All of these mattresses are coupled with the latest mattress fillings including wool and silk, latex, memory foam and geltex to give you the best comfort and support. In our brand new Silentnight Sleep Centre you will find a Bed Selectivisor which can be used to custom design your own bed by choosing the support system, along with the type of mattress firmness you require, the style of divan base and colour that you like and even add on a matching headboard so you can see what your new bed looks like before you even place an order. Obviously we have a department full of beds to see and try out, so you can still buy your new Silentnight bed the old fashioned way. To celebrate the brand new Platinum Collection beds, we are offering up to £250 off marked prices, this is a genuine discount and is available until 31st August.

Pressure relieving mattresses are becoming the way forward for many people these days. Whether you have a manual job, spend a lot time sitting in a car or at a desk, play sports or just quite frankly have a bad back, a mattress with pressure relieving properties could help you sleep better which in turn helps you perform better day to day. These days you don’t have to rely on memory foam for that. We have a huge selection of natural latex and latex gel, as well as the

brand new affinity foam from Slumberland. Affinity foam is the first foam where every single cell is opened allowing air to pass through, this allows the foam to breathe and be completely free of heat, as well giving great pressure relief to aching joints and muscles. Slumberland couple the Affinity foam with their unique spring systems which add to the support and comfort required to give you the best nights sleep possible. This August all king size Slumberland beds and mattresses are priced as a double, so great savings to be made in store. With a slightly different style of support, the new Miraform from Silentnight is a uniquely spring free foam, which has tear drop channels strategically placed to give the foam a zoned support, this is then topped with either memory foam or Silentnight’s exclusive geltex. These mattresses are designed to align the spine, provide optimal body support and prefect pressure relief in such a way that, tests show, is superior to that of the leading brand of support foam mattresses. Visit us in store today and let us talk you through the huge choice of mattress options we can provide you with. Remember, if you are waking up with a bad back or you don’t feel refreshed in the morning, it could well be your mattress is past its best. If it is over 7 years old, then it is definitely not giving you the suppor t and comfor t you require, so maybe it’s time for a change.. www.soundsleepbeds.co.uk

As part of our brand new showroom updates, you will find our stylish Rest Assured department featuring traditional pocket sprung beds with luxury fillings including cashmere, silk, wool, latex and memory foam. These beds are tried, tested and loved by our customers and are great value for money. Along with our brand new Silentnight and Rest Assured departments, we are also very proud to be East Anglia’s first stockist of the Hilary Devey Collection by Duvalay. Hilary Devey, one of the Dragons from the BBC’s Dragons Den, invested in Duvalay five years ago and has helped the company develop 08 | Wymondham & Dereham

WEST SUFFOLK COLLEGE

Students Are at the Heart of Everything We Do world of oppor tunities opens up with a course at West Suffolk College. There is something for everyone, whether you are practically minded or academic or want a bit of both in your studies. The College offers so many oppor tunities for school leavers to develop their talents in a supportive environment that breeds success.

A

We specialise in courses that are directed towards different career or job types. All our courses include work-related activity or a work experience placement. Our staff have direct, relevant and recent experience of the workplace. A major strength of West Suffolk College is its links with employers – currently we work with over 1,700 businesses.

“ Even though our courses are full time some only need you to be in College three days a week or fewer.” Got your GCSE or A level results? Then you can take the first step on your career path with a vocational course, an Apprenticeship, BTECs and NVQs, a degree level qualification or an Access Course that will get you to University. Our Level 3 courses are equivalent to A Levels and gain UCAS points for entry to university. This year more than 500 of our Level 3 student are progressing to universities throughout the country including Bristol, Edinburgh and UEA. Many have chosen to study their degree with us at the University of Suffolk at West Suffolk College. www.DispatchMagazine.co.uk

Even though our courses are full time some only need you to be in College three days a week or fewer. There’s a huge variety of courses available at our Bury St Edmunds campus for students who are 16+. They include Business, Bricklaying, Computing, Construction, Graphic Design, Fashion, Performing Ar ts, Engineering, Media Production, Spor t, Music, Science and many others. More courses mean more oppor tunities and our students study a single subject rather than three or four, immersing themselves in their chosen subject from day one.

If you want to earn money and learn at the same time why not go for an apprenticeship in Construction, Hairdressing, Plumbing, Hospitality, IT or Accountancy among others. Many employers are actively seeking school leavers to begin training. They believe that younger recruits who gain industry experience early on are more likely to progress quicker. If you are 16 to 24 and you don’t feel ready for an Apprenticeship yet you could try a Traineeship which is an education and training programme combined with work experience. In recent years the College has invested in its buildings and infrastructure and, more impor tantly, its teaching facilities. We have created a learning environment that gives students a much better idea of what it might be like to work in their chosen field. We have workshops, construction sites, a fully functioning performance theatre and recording studios, a licensed restaurant serving the public and a hair and beauty salon. We have great plans for the future too including a £9 million Engineering and Innovation Centre. Over 19s can get help with the cost of our courses by applying for an Advanced Learning Loan.

205PS and 207lb-ft of torque. Just like the Renault Clio, it comes with a factory-fitted EDC (Efficient Dual Clutch) seven-speed auto gearbox. The Renault Mégane GT 205 is buttressed by the French manufacturer’s four-year-old CMF (Common Module Family) platform. However, Renault Spor t has sprinkled magic dust over the dampers, springs, engine breathing and steering ratio to make everything feel very 2016/2017. And you can let Renault off for sticking a fake tailpipe on – the twin exhaust look does work very well indeed.

The automaker’s Sport division has also tweaked the Renault Mégane GT 205’s 4Control four-wheel steering. Shift it into RS mode and sub-50mph the car’s rear-wheels steer 2.7 degrees in the other direction to the front-wheels, honing turn-in on the bendier bits of bitumen. Beyond 50mph the front wheels operate 1.0 degree in the same direction, encouraging high-speed plantedness.

the bar even higher. Kit includes traffic sign recognition, launch control and attractive LED headlights.

The Renault Mégane GT 205 is one of a kind when it comes to its interior touchscreen. It’s the only car in its segment to house a vast portrait oriented 8.7-inch screen. This is accompanied by other tech that raises

The seven-cog auto ‘box is smooth and kicksdown nicely when you press on for pace. The gear selector paddles work well for manual shifting and look the business. You won’t use them though; I did for about five-minutes, but soon left it to the capable EDC transmission to do its job.

The Renault Mégane GT 205 sounds as awesome as it performs. Although, like the dummy exhaust, the sound isn’t all real. Some of the racing refrains are cleverly fed into the cabin through the car’s speakers.

Zigzagging my way across some of Britain’s rural routes, it became obvious just how capable the all-new Renault Mégane GT 205 is on corners. There’s little, if any, body lean and it’s all very comfortable, regardless of the stiffer, sportier suspension. That only becomes noticeable if you hit a particularly large rut – but then pothole-peppered roads affect the ride in any car. There are lots of things to love about the all-new Renault Mégane GT 205. It’s a fun, energetic, agile and relatively practical five-door hatch – it’s also a handsome beast.You can’t go wrong with the £25,500 price-tag either. www.DispatchMagazine.co.uk

HEARING CARE CENTRE

When was the last time you had a hearing test? an you remember when you last had your hearing tested? If you can’t remember or have never had one, you cer tainly are not alone. A recent study* highlighted that in the United Kingdom over half the population (53%) have never had a hearing test carried out.

- it’s often an easily solved problem. A large par t of the problem is that many of us presume, wrongly, that it isn’t something that could affect us. In fact, it’s thought that 18,000 of us are experiencing noise-induced hearing loss caused by or exacerbated by our workplace environment or hobbies.

If you asked yourself when was your last dental check-up or visit to the opticians, you would probably say in the last 2 years. So why do we not take the same care with our hearing?

If you suspect you or a friend is experiencing difficulties with their hearing consider the list below:

C

There are currently 10 million people in the UK who are hard of hearing and our lifestyle means that the condition is becoming increasingly prevalent. Once an issue associated with old age, now anyone can find their hearing isn’t what it used to be. Thankfully, with the use of accurate diagnostics and fantastic hearing assistive technology

16 | Wymondham & Dereham

• Do you ask others to repeat themselves? • Do friends complain that the TV is too loud? • Does it become difficult to follow a conversation in background noise? • Does it seem to you as if people are mumbling? If you answered YES to any of these questions, you may have a hearing loss. If you have yet to have a hearing

assessment, do not suffer in silence with an issue that can be readily addressed with hearing technology. If you are feeling hesitant about taking the next step remember that you are not alone. Consider the improvements in quality of life experienced by individuals who take action and address their hearing loss. The experience can be life changing - hearing aid users say they grow in confidence, communicating in groups becomes easier and less stressful and they begin to enjoy life again. Our hearing allows us to connect with our surroundings and communicate with our loved ones. The ability to hear properly can go along way in helping to stay active. Correct communication with family and friends can mean the difference between a fun and enjoyable day out or a confusing and frustrating day.

Karen Finch is the Managing Director and lead audiologist at The Hearing Care Centre. The multi-award winning, family-run company has 22 centres across Suffolk and Norfolk.
