Town Centre Manager Appointed Stowmarket now has it's first ever Town Centre Manager which is welcome news to all traders in the Town Centre as well as the whole town. Mark Strachan started in the role on the 10th May. His over-riding objectives will be to make Stowmarket Town Centre a better place, get more people using the Town Centre and to form a Town Centre Partnership. Mark brings over 20 years of people and project management experience to the role and is extremely enthusiastic about the challenge. "I live with my family on Cedars Park and I'm delighted to have been given the opportunity to make a difference to the town I live in. These are exciting times for Stowmarket with so many improvements going on - such as The Mix, the new bridge, the John Peel Centre, and the Ipswich Street redevelopment amongst others. These will all be a huge boost to the Town Centre and it's so exciting to be a part of that." Mark will be getting out and meeting the retailers in the town over the coming weeks as well as developing a Town Centre strategy. "I want to unite all the businesses in the Town Centre to form a single voice through a Town Centre Partnership. If we all work together we can jointly achieve success"

much the main focus and therefore there will not be any children's stalls and rides. The Main Event on Sunday 6th June (12pm to 7.45pm) again boasts an exciting line up covering all sorts of styles.

One of the best free music festivals in the region and it's right here in Stowmarket! Yes, StowFest is nearly here - all we need now if for everyone in Stowmarket to pray hard that the weather is actually kind to us for once! StowFest is over two days this year with the addition of StowFest: The Acoustic Sessions (sponsored by Birse Civils) on Saturday 5th June - the day before the Main Event (sponsored by Hudson Signs and PPG) at the Recreation Ground. Don't be under any illusions that the Acoustic Sessions will be a low key event. We've got a whole array of great acts lined up - from guitar-supremo / singer songwriter Jake Morley to the folk rock 7-piece Songs From the Blue House to the comedy skiffle duo The Ouse Valley Singles Club to foot-stomping blues rocksters, The Back Porch Band. Plus loads more besides. The Acoustic Sessions will be a great event to chill out, have a picnic and enjoy some superb live acoustic music. There will be several commercial food stalls at the event and the Chilton Fields Sports and Social Club bar will be open. Please note that only alcohol purchased from the bar is allowed to be consumed at the event. The Acoustic Sessions will start at 2pm and finish around 11pm. Although children are obviously welcome to attend and will no doubt have a great time, it is an event on a smaller scale than the main event with the music very

Local Business News

As everyone will have noticed we have changed government recently and the new Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osbourne has announced 22 June as his first Budget - 2010 Budget Mark Two. The actual content of the 2010 Budget Mark Two will provide plenty of scope for speculation, with some of the expected measures being: z VAT will go up to 20% - it is fast and would raise lots of money. At the Treasury press conference, prime minister David Cameron said it was "not something we plan to do" but added that taxpayers would have to "wait for the first Budget" to find out if it would happen z The main rate of Corporation Tax will be cut, possibly with the abolition of the small companies' rate and of the annual investment allowance to pay for it. This will impact significantly on small businesses as the Corporation Tax rate could rise to 25%. z Increase in the rate of CGT on non-business assets possibly from the day of the Budget to 50% from the current 18% z Employees' National Insurance Contributions (NIC) will go up, but not employers' NIC z The personal income tax allowance will increase in the general direction of £10,000 but it is anticipated that it will take several years (probably five years) to reach this level z The increase in the Inheritance Tax Rate nil-rate band won't happen

The new Government has inherited a large budget deficit and will need to reduce this significantly over the life of the parliament. As a result tax payers will potentially face higher tax bills. Tax payers and small business owners will need to review their current tax position and take advantage where possible of tax reliefs still available and look to reduce costs within the business and maximise productivity. We provide a full service reviewing yours and your business' tax affairs advising of favourable elections and assisting in avoiding potential pitfalls. For small businesses we recommend a sound accounting system providing an up to date statement of the profitability and cashflow of the business and an on-going estimate of potential tax liabilities, nobody likes nasty surprises in January. If you would like to speak to us for a free initial consultation and review, please contact us on 01449 798285 or email on

Local Business News Booster Seats urgently wanted

In only a few weeks the Children from Chernobyl will be with us in Needham Market for their respite visit. Having now received the details of the children we find the majority of them are quite small and we now find ourselves in urgent need of Booster seats for them to use whilst they are here. If you have one you could donate or lend us for the month of July it would be much appreciated as to have to buy 20 is of them would use up money we would rather spend on the children. Seats can be dropped in at the Charity Shop in the High street Needham Market or alternatively you can call me and I will be happy to come and collect. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who have donated clothing for the children, unfortunately some contributions were left at the Charity shop without any contact details so I apologise for not sending a personal thank you for these donations. Some of you may be aware that Kevin Parker is undertaking a bike ride from London to Paris at the end of June to raise funds for this years visit. With this being our largest group yet of 24 children we have quite a target to achieve. The bike ride is taking place over only three days, that's over a hundred miles each day! You can follow his progress at . Lastly, we are aiming to send each child home with a shoe box of basic first aid items that all of us take for granted but that these children just do not have access to. If you can help by donating one or more of these items there is a "drop box" in our Charity Shop and all contributions will be most gratefully received. We are looking for: Plasters, Strepsils, Lockets, Chapsticks, Bonjela, Lyclear or Fullmarks solution, Vicks vapour rub, Calpol, Cough mixture (age 6 plus) & Drapolene cream.

Cedars Park School News On Saturday 3rd July, between 11am and 2pm, Cedars Park School will be holding their annual summer fair and like most schools this time of year they have their fingers crossed for dry weather. The children have worked particularly hard towards the fair this year as they have each designed a poster. All the children were invited to take part in a poster competition and a winner from Reception, Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 will be chosen this week. The 3 winning designs will be displayed around Stowmarket in the next couple of weeks, so keep your eyes peeled for them. Marlon 'The Game' Hunt, ranked No 1 in the World and a 6x World Professional Full contact Kickboxing Champion, will be opening the summer fair and putting on a kickboxing display with some of his young students. There will be the usual attractions including a BBQ, cake stall, refreshments, games, face painting by 'messy mites', tombola and lots more fun for all the family. Cedars Park Rainbows and Brownies will also be there with a stall, as well as Just Learning Nursery, Cedars Park Residents' Association and Cedars Church. This year there is a grand draw with some fantastic prizes and tickets for this are available in advance, but don't miss the raffle on the day as there is a signed Ipswich Town football to give away to one very lucky winner. All money raised from this event will help Cedars Park School PTA buy some picnic tables for the current and future children of the school to use and enjoy.

Horoscopes Wedding Wear Amnesty For Stowmarket Hospice Shop With the summer wedding season well under way, why not donate your old outfit to your local St Elizabeth Hospice shops? The Hospice is holding a three-month long wedding wear amnesty this summer during which people are asked to donate the wedding clothes they no longer need. The outfits will then be resold to raise money for the charity, which costs ÂŁ5.9 million a year to run. From June to the end of August all eleven Hospice shops throughout East Suffolk will be taking donations, these include the one in Bury Street, Stowmarket. Then a special wedding department will be set up at two of the Hospice shops - those at Dog's Head Street, Ipswich, and High Street, Saxmundham, to sell the collection for people looking to revamp their wedding outfit this year. Hospice retail sales manager Jason Rudderham said: "A woman's wedding dress is a precious item, so why not consider giving it as an extra special gift to your local Hospice shop after it has been worn. It will be gratefully received and will help us to continue to raise funds to care for our patients and support their families and carers." It is not just wedding dresses that can be donated for resale. Why not dig out last year's hat, shoes or handbag you may have worn for the wedding reception, the groom's suit or even the bridesmaid's dress she may have grown out of. St Elizabeth Hospice relies on the generosity of the local community to help it raise funds to continue to provide its services to people throughout East Suffolk.

Town 102 music review You might not know his name or even the band he's still the lead singer of ('Guillemots') - but Fyfe Dangerfield is certainly making waves thanks to a recent TV commercial which featured his version of "She's Always A Woman", originally recorded by Billy Joel. We started by asking if he thought it was a bit of a risk covering such a well-known and well-loved song: Yeah, there was a lot to think about in - I've always turned down any ads that I or Guillemots have been offered before for our own songs. I think there was just something with this song - it was a combination: I liked the song, I liked John Lewis, and the ad itself. It's weird covering a song as I'm becoming much more known for this - on the other hand, it must be weird for Billy Joel as it's not his version on the commercial either. What do you think of the ad itself? I like it, I think it really works! Though it didn't make me weep - I know some people have, but I don't want to be responsible for mass hysteria in the country in these trying times! You had one of our your own singles being released when the commercial appeared on TV, and that's had to make way for 'She's Always A Woman' - does that frustrate you at all? It's been a bit of a roundabout - yes, in a way it's frustrating but the other end of it is that because of the song, my album [Fly Yellow Moon] has been repackaged with that track, so now a lot of people who would never have heard of me are


finding out about me and Guillemots - so overall it's worked out pretty well! You played a gig in London recently and you had Paul McCartney come and say hello just before you went on - did that make you nervous going out to perform in front of him? [pause] ...yeah! [laughs] I mean, I wouldn't have changed it for the world, one of my biggest heroes and influences on my music... it's funny, 'All You Need Is Love' came on the radio the other day and I still couldn't believe that it was the guy who played bass and sang on that record who came to see me! He said: [in his best Scouse voice] 'I'm just coming back to say I might have to leave before the end, so if you see me going it's not because I don't like it!' Finally, if John Lewis let you in for a 'Supermarket Sweep' style run around the store as a payment for the advert music, where would you heard first? I need some new clothes... I've been wearing the same clothes for about two years! Except suits, I keep getting given suits! I've got seven suits at the moment! So some new casualwear would be good! Fyfe Dangerfield - 'She's Always A Woman' and album 'Fly Yellow Moon' are both out now.

Stowmarket at the Junior Summer league Round 2 Stowmarket Swimming Club team arrived at a sunny Bungay pool for the second round of this year's Suffolk Junior Summer League on Saturday evening. As last month the first swimmers set the bar high, with the first three all gaining personal best times. Elysia Golding and Ruairidh Penman both achieved new best times in the 13/U 4x25m individual medley with Elysia taking more than 3 seconds off her old best time and Ruairidh reducing his best effort at the distance by a massive 7 seconds! Roma, in her first time at a league race, kept her head and despite her goggles coming off stayed focussed to reduce her PB by 1.5 seconds to come 2nd in the 10/U 50m Back stroke in 41.95

Cedars Park Football Club was established in April 2009. Formed with a view to eventually play on the Cedars Park development in Stowmarket, the 'Lions' currently fulfil their home fixtures at Stowmarket High School. A successful inaugural season started with an impressive 10-1 away win. The team remained top of the league all season, eventually gaining promotion by winning Div 6 of the Kingsley Healthcare Suffolk and Ipswich League in March of this year. Preparation for next season is already underway and pre season training starts on 19th June. For full details or information regarding sponsorship opportunities please contact the club on


There were a number of excellent races with swimmers all showing their winning spirit. Robert Borrett was entered in three races and swam faster than ever before in all them, achieving personal best times in the 11/U 50m Freestyle, 50m Fly, and 50m Backstroke. Eilisch Hopkins having taken 6 seconds off her 13/U100 Fly in the last round reduced it by another two seconds, and the followed it up with a huge 5 second pruning of her previous 100 Free time. The final placings on the night were 1st Lowestoft and Oulton Broad, 2nd Stowmarket, 3rd Gt Yarmouth, and joint 4th Deben and Beccles.
